*u nhn Td— iiiih Pirim niinoiB JuMus Klein Retired by State Guard CHICAGO m— Julius Klein, who fought a b&ttl* of words -with bis superior officers over honors to Gen. Douglas MacArtnur, was tired by the Illinois National Guard today witu tne rank ot. major gen-eral. Klein, 53, a Chicago public relations man, has been an active fig ure in Republican politics. He ran unsuccessfully lor uie uup nomi nation for U. S. senator in the 1954 Illinois primary. Joined as Private He joined the Illinois guard in 1933 as a private, and served in the Pacific Theater as a colonel during: World War II. In 1951, when Gen. MacArthur visited Chicago after beinsr relieved by President Truman during the Korean conflict as supreme commander in the Pacific, Klein was a brigadier gen eral in command of tne guard s 109th anti-aircraft artillery bngade. The controversy broke out when Maj. Gea. Harry L. Bohlen, Illinois guard commander, detailed a unit of the 33rd Division Artillery under command of Maj. Gen. George F. Ferry to fire a salute to Mac-Arthur. Later. Klein charged publicly that Bohlen had tried to "muzzle him because he had protested against the MacArthur ouster. Bohlen replied that Klein was "miffed" because his unit, under-strength because two of its battalions were in federal service, did not gee the MacArthur salute mis- The quarrel eventually was carried to Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson by Klein. Stevenson replied that he was surprised that "a general of the national guard would quarrel privately, let alone publicly" with his superior officer. Deactivated Unit A few months later, Gov. Stevenson deactivated the 109th AAA brigade on the ground that it had been reduced by federal service to a headquarters only and $122,000 a year would be saved by taking it off the guard rolls. The deactivation was denounced as political by Sens. Brewster (Pi-Maine) and Wiley (R-Wis)r but efforts of Gov. William G. Stratton who succeeded Stevenson, to get Klein's old outfit reactivated were rejected by the Department of jthe Army. Klein ha3 been in active status with the Illinois guard. His retirement was automatic at the expiration of a time limit of five years active service as a brigadier general. Murder, Inc., Figure Pleads To Tax Charge CAMDEN, N.

R.Bartels-meyer, said today the need for complete reconstruction of Illinois roads is overwhelming. He testified before the House Public Works Committee which is considering federal highway aid legislation. Bartelsmeyer said the state will be in full accord with any legislation that will provide substantial increases in highway construction funds. "We are also in firm agreement with the emphasis which has been given in all proposals to the accelerated improvement of the interstate system." he said. He said Illinois has numerous roads which are not now included in any federal system and therefore must hold a substantial reserve for work on which fedeial funds can-rot be used.

Some dissatisfaction with platform actions on such subjects as universal military training and the United Nations was expiessed by 142 delegates to the recent Illinois PTA convention in a letter to the state and national presidents. Mrs. Newton P. Leonard of Providence, R. I., the national president, declined to discuss the letter, saying she had not seen it. The Illinois PTA head, Mrs. Mel-vin C. Lockard of Cobden, said a state committee to study the matter has been named, but it is not a matter which calls for national PTA action. Mrs. Ralph von Lehmden of Chicago, one of the delegates to the Illinois meeting who signed the letter, said, however, she believes there is strong sentiment among factions of several state groups to curb what she termed "political pressure activities of state PTA organizations."
