Danford issued a statement savin? the letter went put "without our knowledge or approval" during the summer of 1950. and that "corrective action" was taken a year before the subcommittee made its investigation. He said the letter was "immediately stopped" after it was brought to his attention. The foundation publishes a register of graduates, a quarterly magazine and programs for West Point athletic events.

Margarine eased one to 3'-j cents a pound, reflecting lower prices recently on vegetable oil ingredients and sharp market competition the margarine-makers. Some Cuts Lower Meat, poultry and dairy product prices showed little overall change from iast week-end. Food shoppers could find beef rib roasts off as much as six cents or more a pound in stores featuring them as weekend specials, and similar temporary reductions on fresh hams, lamb shoulder roasts, pork loins, broiler turkeys, sirloin steaks, stewing fowl and frozen sea foods. Butter dropped around two cents a pound early in the week but rallied later and appeared likely to end up about where it was last week-end in most places.

The President would make no other comment on. a recent interview quoting Lowe as saying some of his messages didn't get through to the President. Lowe was quoted as saying the break between Truman and Gen. Douglas MacArthur probably never would have occurred if the President had received all his reports. Truman said he had no comment on what General Lowe had to say, but he said emphatically he receiv- WASHINGTON dent Truman said UP) today — Fresi- it is the privilege of a congressional committee to investigate anyone it wants to. This was his comment at a. news conference on the decision of the House Judiciary Committee to investigate the Justice Department and Attorney General McGrath. The committee, the President said can even investigate themselves, if they would like to do it. Judge Decides For Gamblers After 'Abuse' SAN FRANCISCO— (/P)— Federal Judge Louis E. Goodman says it's not dignified to threaten a witness thus: "Why in Hell- didn't you come through clean? When we get through with you, you will wish you had." Whereupon, he acquitted David N. Kessel and William (Big Bill) Fec- lart of charges of contempt of the U. S. Senate. The two gambling figures had refused to answer questions of the Kefauver Crime Committee and were cited. Goodman ruled yesterday the men were within their constitutional rights in refusing to answer. "No doubt these men were engaged in gambling," Goodman said but— "If the constitutional privilege becomes unavailable because of their occupation,lit becomes a short step until It is unavailable to some because they are Democrats or Republicans, Catholics or Jews." Judge Goodman did not identify the senator to whom he attributec the remarks. Present at the closed hearings were Senators Kefauver fD-Tenn); Tobey (R-NH) and Wiley (R-Wis).

Atlee Attacks Spending Slated For Austerity Plan LONDON — OP> — Former Prime Minister Clement Atlee accused the Conservative government today of demanding a blank check from Parliament to carry out a sweeping new austerity plan. The Labor Party leader said the plan, put forth to save Britain from bankruptcy, asks blanket approval of "any act whatever" that would ease this country's gold-dollar shortage. He told the House of Commons sarcastically: "It would include. I imagine, the sale of the Magna Carta, the British Museum, the National Gallery and even a few colonies." "It might even include sending the prime minister to earn dollars by making States." speeches in the United Mrs. Cugat Gets Decree, Charges She Was Slave SANTA MONICA, Calif. — (fF> — Mrs. Xavier Cugat won a divorce from-her band leader husband after testifying he was jealous, ill- or 'packaged), what type of potatoes are involved, and so on.

(Webster's new International Dictionary, second edition, gives the meaning of the word as "morbid: due to disease; as pathology," which is denned as the science of treating diseases.) The President would not give permission for reporters to put in quotation marks his words character assassin or the word -pathological. News conference rules forbid direct quotation of the President without his permission. His comment today was the most caustic he has directed at the Wisconsin senator by name, although he has denounced McCarthy by implication many times. McCarthy began in 1950 a series of charges that the administration, particularly the State Deparment, has been penetrated by Communists. Mr. Truman has contended his administration took prompt action to get rid of any Communists. The clutch pedal of the average of virtual slavery."

Atomic Garbage §een As Possible Weapon Tension Hurts School Pupils WASHINGTON — </P) — Radioactive strontium — a "garbage" of .tomtc energy production — shapes p as a possible prime candidate In .ny. use of "radiological warfare," he Atomic Energy Commission in- icated today. The AEO made no reference to adiological warfare — that is, the use of ray-emitting atomic poisons apable of being released in the orm of dusts or sprays. But it did say studies' indicate hat of all the by-products of atomic fission, radioactive strontium s potentially the "most hazardous" o living systems. And the AEC added there is rea- ion to believe .that radioactive strontium — if "carried in dusts or 5 prays" — would be absorbed by plants from the soil. The AEC said ray-emitting strontium and other byproducts are created in the operation of atomic furnaces and in the explosion of A-bombs. The commission, added that protective measures in its atomic centers and isolation of its own atomic weapon;: tests kept release of these potentially dangerous things within safe bounds. But "to prepare against contingencies," said the AEC, research of their effects on plant and mirieral life goes on constantly. Saying that radioactive strontium has a "half life" of 25 years — that is, it takes 25-years for one half of the radioactive energy to disappear — the commission's report declared: "If animals should eat plants containing large quantities of radioactive strontium, 1 the material would lodge in their bones and injure their blood forming organs. "It would appear in cow's milk and, from this source and from leafy vegetables such as spinach, could be taken directly by human beings." WASHINGTON.—Wl—A group of educators has'found that children are more seriously affected by international and national tensions than most people realize. In a 260-page year book, the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development says: "What are signs of the anxiety of our age?

"It is physically Impossible to do such a thing," said Defense Attorney Carson D. Baker yesterday at the trial of two women accused of shoplifting such a coat by con- cealtng it under the girdle one of them wore. But Assistant District Attorney James P. McGratton picked up a girdle entered in evidence. He wiggled his 180-pound frame and finally twisted the girdle over his hips. He picked up the coat in question and stuffed it inside.

Sixty minutes later the jury found • Margaret Walker, 30, and Mrs, Leary Wright, 47, both guilty. Navy Commander Arrives WASHINGTON — (fl>) — Admiral Lynde D.
