(NEA Telephoto) Pickets Patrol Entrance To Steel Works Union Orders "Sildowners” Back To Work Chicago, Aug. 1 (INS).—Pickets patrolled an entrance to U. S. Steel Corporation’s South Chicago works today to back 25 workers who walked out, charging the company is consolidating jobs to eli- miniate employes.

He said he believes two men may bo ask * ed to do the work previously handled by three. He added “So far no one has been fired, but we’re sure of what’s coming. The walkout was a spontaneous one but we have filed a grievance." The walkout occurred late yes terday.

However, company spokesmen said enough men entered the plant to keep operations going. Naguib Troops Are Withdrawn ’ From Streets Cairo, Aug 1 (INS). Egyptian Military Coup Leader Gen.

Service Staff Correspondent) Seoul, Aug. 1. — American jet pilots, outnumbered two to one, shot down three Communist jet fighters and damaged two others today in a swirling 92-plane battle high over northwest Korea.

The newspaper Bakhtar Em- brooz reported that the Shah already has agreed that all meetings between the Monarch and foreign diplomats, as well as Iranian Parliamentary and political leaders, first he approved by the premier. (Mossadegh, meanwhile, was said in a report from Lc Hare. France, to hae booked passage to New York aboard the superlined United States departing from Le Havre Sept. 12.

The big jet dogfight blazed up in clearing skies a few hours after bayonet-wielding Allied soldiers on the West Korean front recaptured the strategic “Old Baldy’’ ridge after seven hours of combat, some of it hand to hand. Making their first patrol sweeps over “MIG Alley" since rains and overcast grounded them on July 24, the sabres were screening the Allied fighter- bomber raids when the sleek Red jets dashed into view. The American pilots pounced upon the 600-mile-per-hour, swept- wing MIGs and the screaming, twisting battle was on. Credit with the three MIG “kills" were First Lt. Gene F. Rogge of (Route 3) Auburn, Neb.; First Lt. Alfred Miller of (Route 1) Wichita Falls, Tex., and Capt. J. Dennehy of Sun Valley, Calif. This was the first '‘kill" for each of the three American pilots. The two damaged MIGs were chalked up to the credit of Capt. Leonard W. Liiley of Manchester, N. H., and Capt. William J. Ryan Jr., of Keesville, N. Y. The battle marked the first daylight air encounter since July 23 when one MIG was damaged ; in a dogfight. On the ground, the end of a six-day rainstorm ushered inn a resumption of sharp fighting in the western sector of the much-embattled “Old Baldy’’ peak west- northwest of Chorwon. Allied infantrymen, supported by artillery and later by waves of Jaw-sweeping planes, stormed and recaptured the crest of the height early Friday. However, International News Photos Cameraman Dave Cicero reported from a forward observation post at noon that the Chinese Reds in that sector appeared to be massing for anoth er counterattack on the ridge. Although small in numbers of men involved, the Friday morning “Old Baldy" battle had virtually all the elements of fierce fighting. The Allied infantry launched a double-pronged attack up the hill’s southeast slope shortly before mid night. Climbing through screens of Red artillery and mortar tire, the foot soldeirs reached the crest at 4:45 Light Quake Shocks Felt In California Los Angeles, Aug. 1 (INS).— The task of repairing and rebuilding damage from earthquake# which have jarred Southern California since the killer quake of July 21 moved forward today despite discernable aftershocks this morning.

Davis states that lie has received several complaints in the past few weeks from rural route patrons whose mail boxes have been “shot up,” These rural route boxes have evidently been used for target practice. The McKinney Postmaster states that although rural boxes belong to the family placing them by the roadside, tampering with or damaging them in a Federal offense, punishable by law. It is his belief that the persons who have shot into mail boxes do not realize the expense involved, nor do they understand the seriousness of the offense. He urges the coopertion of every vine in this matter, before the of fenders find themselves in serious trouble. -LEAVE FOR HOME Mrs. George Roper and little daughter, Lillian Melissa, who has been ill at the home of her grand mother, Mrs. J.

Dies Blames Control On Fifth Column Jasper, Tex., Aug. 1 (INS). — Martin Dies, the first man to head the House un-American Activities Committee, today blames Commu nist control over much of the earth on the Red “fifth column rather than on military' conquest. Dies, w hose victory in the Texas Democratic primary earlier this week virtually assures his return to Congress after an absence of several times, told International News Service: "I propose to resume where I left off and finish the job of House-cleaning I started in 1935. I am better prepared than 15 years ago. better informed, more mature." An additional reason for carrying on the fight. Dies says, is that "some of our finest youths are shedding their blood to stop it. We stand committed to resist Lhe aggression of Communism." Dies says the Community party is not a real political party but a Foreign branch of the Kremlin and, as such, has no more right to exist in the U. S. than Murder, Incorporated. As for individual Communists, the ex lawmaker says they should be catalogued and their whereabouts and activities be subjec t to continous scrutiny. But Dies does not believe that war will come as long as Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin is alive. He added, however, than Stalin does not have long to live and Georgi Malenkov, who he believes to be STANDARD BEARER —Democratic standard bearer. Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois, cups an ear to better hear a question put to him by newsmen at a press conference on the lawn of the executive mansion in Springfield.
