We can understand the right of these two confessed killers to start habeas corpus proceedings now that attempts for a new trial have failed. But how thoir attorneys can make the same contentions as basis for a writ of habeas corpus as were made un- succe.s.^full.y by other attorneys for a new trial is beyond this lay observer. There has bcpii no new evidence or claims of such. Tt has been established by the State Supreme Court that the two received a fair trial here, had adequate legal counsel arul had no grounds upon which to be granted a new trial. And the highest court in the land denied a review of the case. It's also a mystery of how killers who sold their confessions for magazine and book publication can claim their confessions to law officials were obtained under denial of civil rights.

Senattr Stuart Symington, the Missouri Democrat, isn't speaking to his brother-in-law, former ambassador James Wadsworth. Reason is: Ths test ban talks and whether you can trust the Russians. Senator Symington, the handsome former secretary of the Air Force who did such an excellent job in breaking the Russian blockade around Berlin, still remembers that day, claims th e only answer to the Russians is the diplomatic straight arm and force. His b r o t h e r-in-law "Jerry" Wadsworth, a staunch Republican, who served under Eisenhower as U.S. delegate to the United Nations and American envoy to the Geneva disarmament talks, has came to know the Russians. He so3 s a difference between Russian tactics under Stalin at the time of the Berlin blockade and Russian tactics under Khrushchev today. Significantly, Wadsworth now heads an important new committee of American citizens including many Republicans to support the Democratic President regarding an end of nuclear testing. On the committee are two former Eisenhower cabinet members, Marion Folsouv, former secretary of HT?W and now head of Eastman Kodak; together with Arthur Flemming, also former secretary of HEW and now president of the University of Oregon. They urg.3 bipartisan non-political support for Kennedy in straightening out difficult problems with Soviet Russia for pea«. Rut the Democratic brother- in-law of GOp Ambassador Wadsworlh is nist as vigorously opposed. Mrs. Symington, very attractive sister of "Jerry" Wadsworth, is tlw daughter of a distinguished Republican, J i m Wadsworth, who served in the U.S. Senate from New York and later came back as a member of the House of Representatives. Jim Wadsworth wa s a great military man served on the military affair.i committee. •Uut his son is a man of peace. And even though his Democratic lK'ither-in-Iaw won't sp^ak to liim, he las written a vigorous artu'lo ni the curren* issue of nod Book predicting thai the test l-nn treaty will be ratified by the Senate and telling of his own personal negotiations with the Russians. Wadsworth reports: "It is only too easy .for Americans to put all the bhme on the Soviets, to repeat toe well worn cry 'You can't do business with them.' The trouble with that is that it is not •entirely rue. "In a strange sort of minuet," says Ambassador Wadsworth, far more than they have retreated .,. Their acceptance even of the principle of inspection is a considerable concession in- ciefid." Those ar c the views of one of the top diplomats of ti?e Eisenhower administration and that's the reason why two brothers-in- iaw, both able men, aren't speaking. The people of New York don't realize it, but John Bailey, the Democratic national chairman, wa s indirectly responsible for the appointment of the latest federal judge for the southern district of New York: Charles Tenne>. Bailey, on a tour of upstate New York, made the remark that Mayor Robert Wagner was not the real boss of the Democratic party in New York. Mayor Wagner immediately hit the ceiling. The mayor may have his critics, but he was rj elected by a substantial majority and is indispensable to Johr F. Kennedy in the 1964 election. So the mayor told the White House hi no uncertain tennis that iie required visible proof of who was boss and who was handling Democratic patronage. 'You've got to make Tenney a federal judge to show this dumb —who's boss," said the mayor, referring to Chairman Bailey. Charlie Tenney was a classmate of Wagner's at Yale, has been the Mayor's commissioner of investigations, more recently deputy mayor. The White House bowed to Mayor Wagner, appointed Tenney U.S. distinct judge. But Gov. Nelson Rockefeller has now moved in with an intensive investigation of Tenney and others around Wagner in connection with the rash of rezoning permits issued during the Wagner administration. Rockefeller probers have been checking into Paul O'Keefe, former deputy mayor and a big wheel in the James Felt real estate firm; also James Felt himself, former city planner; also Irvin? Felt, a high mogul in the Hotel Corporation of America and one of the most important real estate mjn in Manhattan. He recently received a rezoning permit to build the new Madison Square Garden near the Pennsylvania railroad station.' Just what. the rockefeller Investigators expect to come up with isn't known; but it is known that they have been as busy as bird dogs on the trail of real estate officials close to Wagner. Soldiers Fight Oklahoma Fire LAWTON, Okla. (AP)— Soldiers manned bulldozers and helicopters Friday night in an effort to contain a range fire which whipped acros s thousands of acres of grassland in the Wichita mountains wildlife refuge. One soldier was hospitalized with a shoulder injury, and two others suffered minor injuries. Several ranchers reported livestock missing, and refuge, officials said .some deer and buffalo died in the fire. By early this morning, the fire l:t.d blackened nearly 6,000 acres, and was confined to the slopes of Mount Sheridan. Two resort areas have been, and the Holy City, site ot a Easter sunrise pageant, was tnreatened for a time. About 1,850 troops from nearby Ft. Sill were sent to fight the blaze with bulldozers. Helicopters kept watch over the area as small animals with turning fur spread the flames.
