BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI VOL. XLIX—NO. 137 BIythcville Courier Blytheville Dally Newi Mississippi Valley Leader Blythevllle Herald BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, SATURDAY, AUGUST 29, 1953 EIGHT PAGES SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS Aversion of Rails Strike is Predicted However, Compromise Must Be Agreed on by November CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — The "Order of Railway Conductors has announced it will begin a strike on some rail roads at 6 a.m. (local standard time) Sept. 10 but if the mediation clause of the Railway Labor Act is invoked any walkout would be delayed for 60 days * * * — . Telephone Strikes Unabated Missouri Governor May Act f By LEWIS GL^ICK WASHINGTON [AP- — Tension eased today in Washington, Maryland and West Virginia as telephone workers ended a one-clay walkout, but some 60,000 Bell System em- ployes in the Midwest and Southwest remained on strike. The Southwestern, Bell Telephone Co. and its striking workers in Missouri were admonished by Gov. Phil M. Donnelly to get together at once to end what he called an "intolerable" situation. The walkout of about 53,000 employes in Southwestern's six-state area is now in its tenth day. In Indiana, where some 7,000 phone workers were off the job, there were reports of five more ca ble cutting incidents in three cities. An Indianapolis judge ordered picketing restricted there as an aftermath to a picket-line fracas Tnursday night. *** But '«. Br.Himore, Maryland's Independent Union of Switchboard Operators which had not struck voted by a 3-1 margin to accept a contract offer of the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Co. Pay Raise Union President Margaret Weiss said the new contract provides pay boosts from $1.50 to $2 a week for workers who had been getting from $40 to $57 week.y. Strikers in Washington-Maryland- West Virginia and the Midwest states were all members of the Communications Workers of America, CIO. The union is negotiating with Bell System firms covering a total of about 130,000 workers, with the union asking boosts of $2 to S3 and the companies reportedly offering raises from $1.50 to $2.50. Farrell J. Beaver, special representative for the 10,000-member unit of the CIO union, ordered a surprise end at midnight last night to picketing of Washington area and West Virginia telephone exchanges, which began at 5 a.m. (EST) yesterday morning. Beaver said the walkout was not - planned originally as a one-day affair, but declared on-agnin-off- again strike tactics have proved "most successful" weapons for union bargainers. Side Issue In Maryland, where there was also a one-day strike, a side issue developed. CWA President Joseph A. Beirne telegraphed Secretary of Defense Wilson that the Maryland National Guard was furnishing some government-owned cots and blankets to non-strikers at Maryland phone exchanges, and demanded that the military officers responsible be disciplined. CIO President Walter P. Reuther wired chairmen of the Senate and House Armed Services Committees asking a congressional Investigation of the incident. There was no immediate comment from Wilson or the legislators. In Jefferson City, Mo., Gov. Donnelly said if Southwestern Bell and the union don't settle by tomorrow night he will order the State Board of Mediation to meet in St. Louis The strike action was announced in Chicago yesterday by an aidi of R. O. Hughes, ORC president and confirmed by an ORC spokesman here. The local spokesman said either side can call for mediation anc "one side or the other usually does-' If this occurs, no walkout would occur until November and then only if settlement is not reached through mediation. Hughes' aide, James Paddock, said the strike was concerned with rates of pay. Conductors, he said, have lost their "relative position" in the pay rate structure. "The conductor now finds himself be:--.v -the fireman, who subordinate to him," Paddock said. The conductors are seeking a graduated rate of pay.' This means that the bigger the engine on a train, the more the conductor's pay would be. Engineers and firemen already have such a graduated rat based on the power of locomotives. Letters outlining strike procedure were sent by Hughes to local chairmen of the union. Demands Listed Steve Delehunty, Clinton, Iowa, ocal chairman, said the letter made these points: All conductors on all railroads will not be called out simultaneously. The ORC however, is prepared to consider expanding the strike until an agreement is reached regarding the graduated rate of pay for conductors. "Picket lines must be established in all terminals and officials also will be assigned to assist the general chairmen in the conduct of the strike.' ' "General chairmen of the property (railroad) first to be struck will be notified by wire or telephone prior to the date set for strike action." "It is contemplated .that employe •ngaged in service primarily affected by the strike must serve on the .picket lines." It is contemplated that em- ployes not engaged in service primarily affected by the strike will observe our picket lines." Dates From '49 In Washington, a spokesman for ,he National Mediation Board said the present dispute is an unsettled demand dating back to 1949 for the graduated pay rate. The conductors settled their last dispute with the railroads in May, 1952, when the ORC and two other unions signed separate agreements. Under the 1952 agreement the union withdrew temporarily the demand for the graduated pay rates and pledged not to ask any jay or other contract changes until after Oct. 1, 1953. The union now insists, however, t is entitled to renew the old demand. But the railroads contend he moratorium runs until October ind the union can't raise the point until then. and offer its souri's utility own solution. Mis- anti-strike law allows state seizure of struck utilities. Dick Haymes May Remain LOS ANGELES I/PI—A copy of an 1855 treaty between the United States and crooner Dick Haymes' native.

(AP) — South Korea was reported today advocating San Francisco or Honolulu as the site of the Korean peace conference. An alternate choice would be a city in Latin America, perhaps Rio de Janeiro. This development came as U. N. delegates waited for Communist reaction to the General Assembly decision yesterday that its side would be made up of D. N. countries which sent troops to Korea, plus South Korea. The Soviet Union is to be invited if the Communist side desires it. The U. N. hopes that Red China, North Korea and the Soviet Union will be the Communist representatives. Some sources here pointed out, however, that the Beds ,he right to invite other countries besides the Soviet Union. These iources speculated they might undertake to enlarge their side to neet the U.

Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold sent its decisions j egarding the peace parley to Red China and North Korea.

S. delegate, wanted le gathering postponed until Sept. 29 to give delegates move time for preparation. Cost Money An informal suggestion for the two-week delay, however, drew vigorous objections from Hammav- skjold. The secretary-general said such a move would cost the international organization a lot of money since extra help already has been hired to start work Sept. 15. Swedish and Australian representatives also voiced opposition to the proposal and the suggestion was dropped. A definite selection of nations to represent the U. N. side still has to be made. The next move apparently is for the U. S. State Department to confer with the other 15 countries that sent troops to Korea to determine them would like a seat.

Blattenberger, promptly agreed that gambling activities "have a lot to do with the security of our department. Blattenberger then announced that any printing office employe who "hides behind the Fifth Amendment" will be suspended. His announcment drew a round of applause from the audience at a hearing conducted by the Senate's permanent investigations subcommittee headed by McCarthy. A number of witnesses at other hearings by the subcommittee have refused to answer questions on the ground that answers might tend to incriminate them. The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution gives a witness the right to refuse to answer such questions. Surprise Witness •Blattenberger made his statement after a surprise witness. Carl J. Lundmark, refused to tell McCarthy whether he operates a gambling book at the huge government printing plant or whether he netted $25,000 from this operation last year. The subcommittee has been Investigating charges that some em- ployes of the printing office are Communists and may have carried off confidential documents.

Noncoms Are Granted Freedom By STAN CARTER PANMUNJOM (AP) — Tough American sergeants who were separated from their men in North Korean prison camps because of their outspoken resistance to communism began coming home today. Among the 145 Americans freed today at Panmunjom were 36 non-commissioned officers from the sergeants' compound at Camp 3, Chongsong, North Korea. M.Sgt. James C. Goelzer, 37, of New Albany, Jnd., who was captured six days after U. S. ground troops went into action in Korea in July, 1950. said: "As long as the sergeants were allowed to stay with their men, the Communists had no success preaching their propaganda." Two Australian officers, three Turks, and 250 South Koreans also were returned. One Australian, a Mustang pilot, was the first Australian airman captured. returned 2,400 North The Allies Koreans. The Reds promised to return 110 more Americans Sunday, as well as 250 South Koreans, 25 British, 4 Turks, 5 Filipinos, 3 French and 3 South Africans, a total of 400 men. Including Saturday's exchange— the 25th day of Operation Big Switch — 2,567 Americans have returned to freedom. The Beds said at the start of the exchange they had 3,313 Americans. They have hinted since, however, that the total returned might, exceed this figure. Returning prisoners said almost all the American captives except sergeants from Camp 4 — a special sergeants' camp and officers from Camp 2 have been repatriate They said the Camp 4 sergeants and the officers were waiting at Kaesong, last stop on the way to freedom. "Criminals" Disappear The men who came back Saturday said they had not seen the Americans who were taken from Iheir camps in the last week of the war and sentenced to prison terms for alleged crimes against the Communists. Americans who returned earlier said 45 of these men were in Kaesong aw'aiting repatriation but that there were others still at Camp 5 on the Yalu River. No one has seen Maj. Gen, William Dean along the route to freedom .The commander of the U. S. 24th Division was captured in July, 1950. Friday's returnees had said,they were told that the Chinese planned to return all prisoners, even those sentenced on such trumped-up charges as "waging germ Warfare." The sergeants who returned Saturday said there were 37 sergeants in Camp 3 who were separated from tlie younger men. But/only 36 came back. One sergeant was taken out of tho compound in the last week of the war and sent to jail for ('organizing" the prisoners against communism. Two Year Sentence A fellow prisoner who was in the Camp 3 jail at the time reported back to the other prisoners that the Reds told the now-missing man he would not be repatriated until he served a two-year sentence. Sgt. John H. Banks, 22, of Campton, Ky., said the Chinese Reds segregated the sergeants late in 1051. Banks, who was a cornoral When captured, was not sent to the sergeants' camp. "By mid-1952," Banks said, "the other companies (those with lower grade enlisted men) had a nucleus of "pros" ("progressives") if. if. who had fallen for the Red propaganda. "Quite a few of the 'pros" wera young men but they were mora than that; they were just plain stupid." Another sergeant, Edward M. McClain, 28, of Bascom, Fla., emphasized that it was the Chinese Reds who practiced indoctrination. "The North Koreans did not try indoctrination or propaganda," he said. "They just beat us up, starved us, left us without medical care and sometimes left us to freeze to death. "But the Chinese tried to force propaganda down our throats. "The way it turned out for some men—those who fell for it—I am not sure which was the worse." Learned Hate A young corporal, George A. Cooper, 21, of East St. Louis, 111., best summed up the feelings of the men who came back Saturday. Asked if he learned anything worth-, while in prison camp, Cooper, a prisoner for 37'/ 2 months, answered; "I learned to hate." The only Marine from the Camp 3 sergeants compound, M.Sgt. Frederick J. Stumpges, 39, Sheboygan, Wis., Was captured at Corregidor in World War n and was a prisoner of the Japanese for three years and five months. Asked to compare Japanese prison life with his 33 months as a prisoner of the Chinese Reds, Stumpges said: "I have to admit it but the food was better this time. Physically the Chinese did not mistread their prisoners like the Japanese did but the mental strain was much, greater." # * * Tough Sergeants Unbent by Reds By WILLIAM .1. WAUGH And FORItEST EDWARDS FREEDOM' VILLAGE, Korea AP) — Tough Army sergeants captured early in the Korean war reached Freedom Village .oday unbent by three years mprisonment under the Communists. The sergeants had nothing but contempt and hate for the Chinese and North Koreans. Typical of their undaunted spirit was 37-year-old M. Sgt. Fisher iVatkiris of St. Louis. Watkins said his captors "pistol- whipped me but didn't knock me j down — they couldn't hit you that hard."

"They just swarme'd over ou—they had us outnumbered abiut 50 to 1." Watkins was 1 of 37 sergeants lonfincd in a special company in He said the 37 sergeants stuck together and resisted Red attempt? to indoctrinate them at every turn They also gave moral support to the younger soldiers. "They'd work on the young kids," Watkins said, "but we'd lei 'em what the score was. I think We helped th° kids." Seven Years As PW There was one Marine in th< sergeants' group, M. Sgt. Fred erlck J.

Aug. 19. the Red Cross bloodmobile from Memphis called at Manila and gathered 73 pints of blood in n visit sponsored by Manila and Lenchville. Blytheville's bloodtnobile visit one week later netted only 64 pints. This discrepancy gave rise to the following "proclamation" which was received by the Courier News this morning: "Attention is invited to certain Mississippi County, Arkansas, during the past 10 days. On Wednesday, August 19, 1953, the Bloodmobile Unit of the Red Cross came to Manila and secured 73 pints of blood from the residents of West Mississippi County. One week Inter this same Unit came to Blytheville and was able to obtain only 64 pints of blood. "The above facts seem to indicate that the city of Blytheville does not appreciate the work of the Red Cross as does the city of Manila. Therefore, we, the following citizens of Manila, do earnestly urge that the headquarters of the Chickasawba District Chapter of the Red Cross be moved from Blytheville, where it is no longer appreciated or supported, to Manila, where it is nct-'ded and wanted."
