PRICE 5c COPY Navy Wants Strong Bases in the Aleutian Islands By DON WHITEHEAD Pearl Harbor, Oct. 3 — (/P)— A new U. S. Navy policy in the Pacific calling for a strong Aleutian base near Siberia and extension of its outpost 3,000 miles westward to Guam was announced today. The policy was made public at a press conference by Adm. John H. Towers, commander of the Pacific fleet, who conferred only Men . day with President Truman and high navy officials in Washington. Towers declared that Guam. 3,318 miles west of Pearl Harbor, would be turned into an outpost us strategically important as this Hawaii naval base — long the symbol 1 of U. S. Navy might in the Pacific. The admiral said the new Pacific policy would be to concentrate permanent naval installations in Alaska, the Aleutians, Hawaii and in the Marianas. This would include permanent facilities for surface warships as well as navy "It is air bases, obvious," Towers said. "that we need a base further in the Pacific. Because of the mobility and range of surface and air fleets it is necessary that we extend our Pacific outpost beyond Pearl Harbor. The .speaker is a leading Episcopal churchman, editor of the Springfield State Register, and widely-known Illinois after-dinner speaker. He Is half-causlic about the slol- •yachine evil, which most men Consider to be an amusement for morons, but at the same time he is. half-serious about the national lollery proposal. A great, number of respectable nations, among them being England, permit lotteries. And yet, the average American finds the idea repugnant. Ill' the first place, even though southern Illinois may be running "wide open", a great many American communities absolutely forbid the ' operation of slot machines. Your writer sixteen years ago •*.isted some slot-machines from Hope with eight affidavits. In the second place, while some gambling exists us part of everyday American life—and always will exist—il is nol so framed and recognized as lo be one of Ihe avowed goals of our country. A man may advocate limiled seasons of horse-racing, with its attendant belting practices, and yet oppose the establishing of a national lottery for tax-raising purposes. There is n great difference. ~i Horse-racing remains subjccl lo '-.'ic tolerance of Ihc people, the law Riving it a half-hearted approval for the sake o.f thai minority which insists upon belling Ihe bong-tails. But the setting up of a national lotlcry would do something to all of us, by compulsion.

Who ore we of Ihis generation tn give away our country's leadership in wealth and production and power lhat Americans before us created? By JAMES THRASHER Fatal Endorsement f' 1 If Henry Wallace, private citizen, has .more success promoting his concept of American foreign policy 1 than did Henry Wallace, Sccrclary ' of •Commerce, il won't be the fault, .of ljic",American Communist parly. |a student in Ihe Vandcrbill Univcr- For the domestic Reds, never cm- barassed by inconsistency, nianag , cd to flout and contradict the Wai- .lace policy in Ihe course of endors- -ing it. • Mr. Wallace, in the speech thai •led lo his Cabinet departure, said. " "W'<S"should recognize thai we have Vjio more business in Ihe political "Jffairs of Eastern Europe thari Russia has in the political affairs of Latin -America, Western Europe and the Uniled Slales." But 'nnycne who reads knows lhat Russia has long made n bus- iness'of meddling disruplivcly in Ihc political affairs of North and South America and Western Europe through resident Communist Parlies, which follow Russian policy,.and parly line as faithfully as a dog follows its master. But just in case lhat practicr .Ijiari been forgotten, William Z x'oslcr, national Communist chairman, ' recalled it by attacking the President and American foreign .pplipy in the same speech in which he endorsed Mr. Wallace. He echoed recent Moscow attacks on our policy by tolling an audience of 16,000 in Madison Sciuarc •Garden (where Mr. Wallace 'had spoken jusl a week before) lhat tho Truman administration was supporting an "ill-fated pro.jccl of establishing capitalist domination .over the war-wracked world," and ^hal Americans were being propagandized for war by a "drunken spree of Soviet • bailing." The Communist leader. clearly displayed the Soviel finger in our polilical pie. Bui of course he would never admit Ihe propriety of America's inserting a similar finger in the pastry of Russian polilics. All of which served lo re-emphasize Ihe unsounrlncss of Mr. Wallace's principal Ihesis on inlet national politics — which Mr. Foster professes to support. t . The weakness of the Wallace K'.iolicy seems lo be ils ussumtpion thai American aggressiveness is largely lo blame for Soviel- American misunderstandings, and thai if we would slop being tough with Russia und try to understand her, .most of the misunderstandings would vanish. Under idcul conditions the Wallace prescription would be easy to follow. But the Russian government has taken almost no initiative to ' ward' betlcr relations wilh us. It has,'thwarted mutual understand- AUig by forbidding ils citizens free ;intercourse and csi-hangc of idoxs with citizens of western lands. II accuses us uf "imperialism," and exhorts its people tu greater industrial output us protection against "capitalist encirclement" and "inevitable war." Our gravest problem of foreign policy is how to persuade Russia ly stop being tough und try to un- dcrstynd us. And il cannot be solved either by being uduinunt, or b.v lu tu every Soviet demand. J.

S. Francis C. Harrington and a coast guard cutter. The coast guard announced the rescue today, after it had said earlier that a lone man— Frederick L. Wright of Springfield, Mass., owner of the yawl — had been found by the Harrington. The coast guard said the Harrington sighted the yawl, the Dorothy, about 123 miles out in the Atlantic, and took aboard six men. Wright said he preferred to stay with the yawl and a coast guard cutter took the yawl in low. The Harrington, in charge of Captain Edwin K. Yardboro of Hutherford, N. J., reached porl shortly before 10 a. m. Hempstead Men Hurt in Car Accident Two Hempstead county men. were seriously injured, one critically, early lasl night in an automobile accident on Highway 29. south of Hope near the county line. J. M. Powell suffered a broken leg, bruises and cuts and C. B. Dockcry, also of near Patrnos, sustained a severe head injury. His condition is described as serious. The accident apparently resulted from a tire blowout which overturned the automobile. The car was badly damaged, •o- Insanity to Be Plea in Triple Slaying Convent, La., Oct. 4 —(/P)— Defense attorneys in the Irial of Alonzo "Blackie" Jones have indicated they will attempt to prove today that the former marine charged with a double murder, is insane. Sigur Martin, chief defense counsel, said several members of the Lunacy commission that earlier declared Jones, sane, would ..be called lo the "witness'"stand. • • ' • Meantime the prosecution said it had only two or three remaining witnesses, all of whom' were to teslify this morning. Yesterday the prosecution read two purported confessions in which Jones,, who formerly worked at Camden, Ark., was quoted as saying ho accepted a ride from thro escrvicc men near Shrcycport, then for "no reason I know" jerked out a pistol and shot them. Gordon Ray ot Eleclra, Tex., was Ihc only survivor of Ihc threesome and yesterday testified in court that Jones committed the double murder. One alleged confession was read by Chief of Police Thomas L. Hoi- lie of Mobile County, Ala., and another by Districl Attorney Aubert L. Talbot ot St. James Parish, La. The documents were basically the same, describing how "one man hollered" when shot and how Jones later changed his bloodstained clothing for a fresh suit and left the car lo travel by bus. o- Truman Seeking Quick Action in Palestine Washington, Oct. 4 —W)—President Truman called on Prime Minister Attlec of Britain today to open Palestine immediately to Jewish immigranls from Europe —without waiting any longer for a British- jJewish-Arab settlement of Pales- tjne's future. '; In a public Yom Kippur Day Statement released here, the text of which was cabled to Attlee, Mr. Truman also endorsed the Jewish agency plan for creation of a Jewish state in an "adequate area" of Palestine and rejected outright the plan for an Arab-Jewish 'division of the Holy Land which Britain and many of Mr. Truman's own advisers have been supporting. < He reaffirmed his support for the earliest possible immigration of 100,000 Jews into Palestine, but urged that "substantial immigration" should begin at once before winter brings new suffering to the masses of Jewish homeless in Eu- yopc. In this projected endeavor he promised American assistance in the form 01 shipping and other cco- ripmic aids. : The president thus divided the Palestine problem into two parts: Immediate and long range. He evidently abandoned the British thesis that some overall settlement must be worked out before any substantial number of Jewish immigrants could be pcrfitted. In addition to promising aid in getting Jews from Europe to Palestine, Mr. Truman also reaffirmed his intention to ask Congress — meeting next January — \o "liberalize" American immigrations to alkiw entrance of thousands of additional displaced persons. "Furthermore," he said, "should solution for Palestine I would'be willing to o draw the exposition's largest crowd and all schools in Hempstead county will close for the event. Buses will bring students to he show. All will be admitted free. Friday's program calls for the 4- H Club Livestock and Dairy udging contests. At 3:30 p.m. winning 4 - H club baby beeves and :alves will be auctioned off to ughest bidders. A calf scramble at "I p. m. by Hempstead county boys vill be the night's feature event.

Stockholm Men Know All About Women's Knees; Just a Matter of Short Skirts, Bicycles By EDDY GILMORE (For Hal Boyle) Stockholm —(/P;— There must be no large city in the world except Stockholm where the male population knows so much about the fc- m;ilu population's knees. It's all a mailer of bicycles und short skirts. Ladies from every walk ot Swedish life fill Ihc capital's streets and squares wilh last-flying bikes und a journey on foot through the city's thoroughfares is like a voyage in a sea of knees. II is true Dial few women in the I stockings, and round garters seem I lo have no mission in Sweden. Stocks arc firmly hitched to milady's person, perhaps because of the bicycles. Biire knees arc sometimes seen. Perhaps I'm here oul of the bare season, but desultory research along llicsc lines reveals thai Sweden is nothing like as bare-legged or bare-kneed as Ihe Uniled Slates, Britain or Russia. The size and shape of a lady, or her knees, have nothing to do with whether or not she chooses to ride ;i bike, but I have noticed that different ladies ride the bicycle differently and therefore have con- world appear to equal Sweden's in general modesty — lhal is, until they gel on a bike. Dresses arc still short here, very short, and as hundreds upon hundreds bicycles ylide past, jherc arc knees to llvjs right of you ... knees through tho street, to the left . . .knees in front and j Others use the all directions. . . . Thcv twinkle, I method, a system a- workable oe devised, recommend to the Congress a plan for economic assislance for the development of thai country." Mr. Truman set forth his own views as follows: "1. In view of the fact that winter will come on before the conter- e'nce (Palestine conference in London) can be resumed, I believe and urge that substantial immigration into Palestine-cannot await _ solution to the Palestine problem and that it should begin at once .Preparations for this movement h^e already bsen made 1 by.- this government and-it is'ready to lend its immediate assisUncc. "2. I state again, as I have staled on previous occasions, that the immigration laws of other countries, including the "United Stales, should be liberalized wilh a view to the admission of displaced persons. I am prepared to make such a recommendation to the Congress and to continue as energetically as possible collaboration wilh olhcr countries on Ihe whole problem of displaced persons. "3. Furthermore, should a workable solulion for Palestine be devised, 1 would be willing to recommend to the Congress a plan for economic assislance for Ihe devel- .opment of that country."

Both the teachers and the maritime strikers demanded higher pay. So did workers in most of the other strikes. Of the 682,560 idle, only 112,650 were involved directly in walkouts. Most of tl)e others were laid off as a result of the shipping stride and the Pittsburgh -power tie-up. The major developments: 1.

Three Japs to Die for Canibalism Guam, Ocl. 4 --(/P)— Three Japanese militarists wore con.dcmend today to die on the gallows for cannibalism — a crime so henious it is covered by no rule of war. The three — a general, a navy captain, and a major •— listened unblinking as a U. S. military commission ordered them to die for cat- ing the roasted livers of two U. S. airmen downed on Chichi Jima late in the war. They were Lt. Gen.. Yoshio Tachibana, the army commander; Navy Capt. Shizuo Yoshii, and Major Sueo Matoba, who also was accused of terrorizing his own men wilh drunken brulalilies. .Rear Adm. Arthur G. Robinson, president of the commission, announced thai two-thirds of the com- missin of seven concurred in each of the hanging sentences, which now will be reviewed by the secretary of navy. The charge of which they were convicled was violaling the laws and cusloms of war. There is no charge lo fit the crime of cannibalism. Vice Adm. Kunzio Mori, the top- ranking navy commander on Chichi Jima, was sentenced to life imprisonment. He was acquilted of any part j.n the cannibalistic orgy, but was convicted of neglect of duly in faiJing to protect the executed airmen. The prosecution has demanded death also for Mori and Army Capt. Kesakieki Sato as responsible commanders. Sato, who relayed orders foo the executions, also was given life.

The ranks of Pittsburgh power strikers were split by a "revolt" against the leadership of President George L. Muller of the Independent Union of Power Workers, 3. At Hollywood, motion picture, producers and strikers looked for the aid of negotiators to end the dispute which has resulted in picket line violence at several sludios. In Ihc shipping slrike, east and gulf coast ship owners reportedly were objecting to the government strategy of attempting to ease the strike by negotiating separate settlements, leaving the difficult west coast problem to the last. As a result, the government conciliators shifted their peace efforts by inviting west coast ship owners themselves to the conference table. The government hoped that the ship owners would be less adamant than Ihc association which has represented them. At San Francisco, President Harry Bridges of the CIO Longshoremen's Union, sent a telegram to Secretary of Labor Lewis Schwellenbach offering to end thp walkout of £3,000 longshoremen which has tied up the west coast waterfront. Bridges offered to leave to future negotiations the minor is-, sue of whether longshorement or sailors should unload 16 steam schooners. At Pittsburgh, an insurgent fac» lion of the power won.e••$' -union, petitioned the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board for an election to determine a representative of 700 production workers, al one substation. Leaders of the faction said tho strike "should ruivo been Fettled long ago." They said the 700 substation workers had formed a new union, independent of the one on slrike.

American Delegate Willard Thorp and British spokesman Glcnvil Hall both protested that the amendment was a new article arid not a change in an agreed upon portion ofiho draft. At one point Australia removed the name of the Soviet Union irom the list of members of the proposed body after Russia protested tnat she was not concerned'with non-Rusian reparations.
