THE KANSAS,-CITY TIMES, SATUBDAY. DECEMBER 17, 1955. ANGRTirS.Nl Protest Is Made to Red China for Violating Pledge to Re. lease Americans. FOURTEEN IRE HELD IN JAIL Since September 10 They Have Been Involuntarily Detained, It Is Charged. State Department Says Chinese Are Free to Leave This Nation Any Time. By J ohn R. Catjley. (Member of The Star'» Washington Bureau.) Washington, Dec. 16.— The United States tonight charged that fourteen American civilians are still being held in jail in Communist China in violation of an agreement of September 10 that all United States citizens would be allowed to return home at once. The State department said that of the nineteen United States citizens who were being prevented from returning on September 10, the date of the Chinese Communist agreement, only five have been released. Follows Red Accusation. The angry protest by the United States came after the Chinese Communists at Geneva yesterday accused this country of "an outright violation of the letter and spirit" of the pact for the return of the civilians. Furthermore, the State department, replying to Communist charges that the United States is preventing Chinese from leaving this country, declared that not one Chinese has been denied exit. "The facts show that the United States has scrupulously complied with its agreement and that Chinese in the United States are now and have at all times since the announcement been free to leave,” the department said. The issue over the return of the detained civilians is the outgrowth of conversations which have been going on in Geneva since August 1 between Alexis Johnson, U. S. ambassador to Czechoslovia, and Wang Ping- Nan, Chinese ambassador. The talks were initiated between the two countries to discuss the release of detained civilians and "other practical matters." Have Met Thirty Times. There have been thirty meetings since the conversations began and progress has been slow and often frustrating. Of the forty-one American civilians held by the Chinese Communist on August 1, twelve were released September 6 and ten released September 10, the date of a Communist China agreement that old United States civilians would be allowed to return home "expeditiously." That left nineteen civilians held and subsequently five have been permitted to return home. Tn its blast of yesterday, the Chinese Communists said the United States had failed to give them the name list and information concerning all the Chinese in the United States. A State department official »•aid this request was absurd, that there are thousand* of Chi- nose in the Lnited States, many of them naturalized c itizens, and that the purpose of this maneuver is a desire of the Peiping government to extend its rule over Chinese i„ the United States. The official said that In March of this year there were 329 Chinese students in the United States on whom there were restrictions on returning to the Chinese mainland. However, these restrictions have since been removed and all are free to go, he said. Only Thirty-Nine Depart. In addition, the official pointed out that of the 129, only thirty nine have left this country. He said that not a single representation has been made by a Chinese in this country to the Indian embassy, which is acting as an intermediary in the matter, that he had been prevented from leaving the United States. All the Chinese who are in this country came in on pass ports issued by the Nationalist government which since has been deposed to Formosa. The fourteen American civilians all are being held in jail, the official said, some in Canton and others in Peiping. He said the Reds have refused to let them communicate with osBibrnty of War Ha* Been Increased. Cairo, Dec. 16.(AP)—Diplomatic circles here believe the possibility of war has been increased by Premier Nasser’s warning yesterday to the United Nations that Egypt will "take action if another Israeli attack occurs.’* Most diplomats . here believe Nasser’# warning was intended to Impress on the security council it must take strong action, or peace in the area will be imperiled. But they fear Nasser may be lured by Israel into throwing the first real punch. If Israel contemplates a preventive war, these diplomats believe It would like Egypt to appear to start it. They say they do not believe the Israeli government now wants any additional territory, but its maximum military objective svould be to shatter the striking power of the Arab armies. British diplomats in Peiping in violation of an agreement that they would be allowed to do so. One of the American civilians being held is Dr. Homer Bradshaw, a medical missionary, who has been accused Of espionage. The official said the Chinese Communists have used all kinds of pressure to force a confession but that Dr. Bradshow has refused. SOUTHEAST PART IS DENIED. P.-T. A. Member Takes Issue With Letter to The Star. Jack Ducatf% 9515 Belleview avenue, a member of the P.-T. A. at the Southeast high school, last night took issue with a statement that students from the school were involved in a teenage disturbance December 3 in Ruskin Heights. S. A. Hadley, 19 West Sixty- second street, in a letter to The Star, published in the Public Mind yesterday, said that several boys from Southeast had started a disturbance two or three weeks previously and, being suppressed, returned with reinforcements the night of December 3. "The facts are not as outlined,” Ducate said. "As established by the sheriff’s office, which has a list of thirty-two boys who were picked up after the December 3 fight, there were no Southeast boys involved.” B. Marvin Casteel, superintendent of the sheriff’s patrol, verified Ducate's statement. He said the boy who fomented the fight was from Kansas City, but not from Southeast. HEART NO SURGERY BAR OPERATIONS SAFE FOR CARDIAC PATIENTS , IF PROPERLY PREPARED. Preliminary Precautions, Pres ence of Family Doctor Important, Speaker Tells Academy of Medicine. RUSSIANS TALK WITH AFGHANS. ¡conomic Aid and Political Support Believed Discussed. Kabul, Afghanistan, Dec. 16. (AP)—Russia’s traveling salesmen, Premier Nikolai Bulganin and Nikita S. Khrushchev, sat down around a bargaining table today with apparently receptive Afghan leaders. Premier Mohammed Daud already has received economic aid from the Soviet Union and is counting on more, plus po- itical support for Afghanistan’s demand that a new state for Pathan tribesmen be carved out of neighboring Pakistan. But Afghan officials are re- uctant to appear too eager and are playing the Soviet leaders’ visit down for fear of making the West think their country may turn into a Communist satellite. Afghanistan especially wants i:o remain friendly with United United States, from which it has received much economic aid. In addition, overtures have been made to President Eisenhower for his influence in the dispute with Pakistan. On the other hand, the Russians are after close links with this mountainous nation so they can extend Soviet influence right to Pakistan’s borders on historic Khyber Pass. Persons with ailing hearts can stand surgery about as safely as those with sound hearts, if properly prepared, Dr. George C. Griffith said last night at a meeting of the Kansas City Academy of Medicine at Milleman’s res- tauraht. Suppose a heart patient needs major operation. The personal physician first makes sure that a diet of proteins and sugar has fortified the heart and thatcor- rect amounts of drugs such as digitalis and quinidine have bolstered the heart action to near normal. Chances Just as Good. Then the heart patient is ready for the surgeon, Dr. Griffith said, and truthfully can be assured that his chances are as good as that of a non-heart case. The personal physician preferably should be at the operating table with the surgeon and the anesthetist, to watch and check, Dr. Griffith added. He is professor of medicine and cardiology at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. Cardiac arrest, stopping of the heart, does not occur during surgery on heart cases any oftener than in non-heart cases, Dr. Griffith asserted. The average is about the same—about two heart stoppages in every 700 anesthesias. Need Family Doctor There. "Cardiac arrest is really not an emergency if anticipated," he explained. "I mean that most arrests can be avoided. That’s why the family doctor should be at the surgical table—to keep another pair of eyes on the patient’s heart strength. "Almost all heart arrests are preceded by warning signs which should be signals to the operating team to slack off on the anesthetic, increase the oxygen and inject small dosages of atropine, isuprel, quinidine or digitalis into a great vein. These measures ease and restore a faltering heart in most cases. If the heart does stop, the chest is opened speedily and the heart massaged by hand to keep circulation going until the pump resumes its own action. Apply an Electric Shock. ‘Or. if a heart figrillates, the remedy is to stop this quivering by applying an electric shock with machines made for that purpose. The shock stops the quivering, stops the heart, in fact, but only momentarily, because in most cases a fibrillating heart, after being stopped, resumes its normal beating voluntarily." It also is very important to check heart action for several hours after surgery is completed, Dr. Griffith noted. To an interviewer Dr. Griffith expressed his opinion Lack of Money Slows Christmas Bureau Work. The Christmas bureau will be open from 8:30 o’clock until noon today to receive contributions from persons who wish to make the holidays brighter for needy persons and families. Bureaji officials said yesterday that the campaign is lagging slightly because of a lack of cash contributions. Only 1,600 of the 4.000 persons and families on the bureau's list have been helped so far. Persons wishing to contribute should call Baltimore 1-0361. Contributions may be mailed to room 337 of the Ridge building, 913 Main street. The bureau will close Friday. MURDER STORY A HOAX MAN SAYS HE CONFESSED TO GET BACK TO CLEVELAND. After Arrival at Airport From Los Angeles, Harvey Lee Rush Tells of Reason for Lying. NO TO DETROIT OFFER STERE0TYPERS SAID TO REJECT PAY PLAN BY PAPERS. Counterproposal to End Strike Reportedly Will Be Made Today, but Other Crafts Now Lack Contracts. Detroit, Dec. 16.(AP)—Striking stereotypers were reported today to have turned down a wage offer from the publishers of Detroit’s three daily newspapers and to be preparing a counterproposal for presentation tomorrow morning. Management and union representatives have been called to meet tomorrow morning for the first joint session since the publishers’ offer was made Tuesday night. Report $2.50 Offered. An informed source said the publishers offered the 116 members of A. F. L.-C. L O. stereo­ typers local 9 a pay raise of $2.50 a week, They originally demanded a $10 raise but reportedly are willing to reduce that figure if other demands are met. The strike shut down the Detroit News, the Times and the Free Press at the height of the heavy Christmas advertising season. The publishers have sought a December 31 expiration date in the new contract. The wage issue was listed by federal and state mediators as the only one left between the stereotypers and the publishers. Other Craft Pacts End. A settlement in this case may not mean an immediate resumption of publication in news- hungry Detroit, however. Contracts covering members of five other newspaper craft unions also have expired and some of these have been given or have asked for strike authorization. Since the strike began Detroit­ ers’ have been getting their news mainly from out-of-town news-j papers, radio and television! newscasts, a strike-born union newspaper called the Detroit Reporter and an English edition of about the Polish Daily News. Cleveland, Dec. 16.(AP) — Harvey Lee Rush today admitted his "confession" that he killed 10-year-old Beverly Potts was a hoax, police said. He admitted he confessed the murder to Los Angeles police because it was "the only way I could get back to Cleveland," James E. McArthur, deputy inspector, said. The 46-year-old Rush was flown from Los Angeles to Cleveland this morning. He tola McArthur his story was a hoax as they rode in a police car from the airport to the police station.

Rush told police there he wanted to confess to the Cleveland murder. He said He- had picked the-little gif 1 up at a carnival in Cleveland in 1952 and had taken her to a wooded valley where he had kilied and buried her. Beverly Potts disappeared August 24, 1951, while attending an entertainment at a playground near her home. Several persons have since "confessed" her murder, but all have proved to be hoaxes.

(AP)— Cumulus, the polar bear cub who raised a brave voice against more infirmities and misfortunes during his 13-day life than most bruins could bear in a decade, died today at the Washington Park zoo. The tiny bear, who weighed only a pound when his mother, Cirrus, dropped his fuzzy form outside her den in freezing weather shortly after his birth December 4, beset by pneumonia, colic and enteritis during his brief career, appeared to have bested them «11 earlier today. But in mid-morning the battle to save the little bear, and thus establish another precedent for the polar bear experts at the zoo, was lost. No American zoo ever has raised a polar bear abandoned by its mother, according to George Speidel, zoo director who spent most of his days and nights at the oxygen tent where Cumulus was kept. --------------4-------------TWO ROYS DIE OF BURNS.
