It disclose* an attempt to smurcle more than $1,000,000 worth of royal jewels and heirlooms from the Russian to the American occupation zone. The treasure belonged to a German mud Duchess. By MENNO DUERKSEN V. P. Staff Correspondent (CopyrUbt 194; by United rrus) Eschwere, Germany, (U.R)—The xeasure hoard of a German grand duchess, valued at $1,000,100 to $6,000,000, was held Friday >y American occupation authori- ies who seized it as it was being smuggled from the Russian to the American zone. Army officials permitted the disclosure Friday that the treasure hoard—Jewels, silver and irlceless heirlooms—was in Amer- can custody. It beloiifed to the royal German family of Sactecn- Wtimar Eisenach, and was unwilled acroM the Soviet-American zonal boundary in Aucust, 1946. The United Press learned of the smuggling attempt 6 months ago but was unable to release the story until additional details became available. In permitting the release, army authorities still left the "top secret" files of the case. label on many In its entirety, the incident was one of the top mystery yarns of the war. The fact that it involved fabulous jewels, a grand duchess, and a young German smuggler ri- valled even the theft of the Hesse crown jewels, which were valued at $1,500,000. Army appraisers said the seized reasure could be valued conservatively at $1,000,000. Unofficial sources said the value might * as hUjh as $6,000,000, but the achsen-Weimar Eisenach family said that figure was too high, iome of the family valuables were still to be in the Russian The story, as pieced together from private investigation and army sources, began at Heinrich- an, Silesia, more than 2 years ago An allied advance had jusl broken the back of nazi resistance. Russian troops were Hearing the Sachsen.-Weimar Eisenach estates at Heinrichan. The grand Duchess Feodora, who was 57 years old Thursday, became apprehensive. She gathered up the family treasure and fled to her estates at Zillbach in Thuringia. When the American army arrived at Zillbach, the grand duchess already had the tteasure buried in sandpiles and cellars. The grand duchess then moved to the family estate at Detmoldn now in the British occupation zone. It was there that she heard of a youne man—just out of the Jerman army—who operated smoothly back and forth across he American-Soviet zonal border. Army authorities will identify him only as "Helnrich Mueller" for the purpose of this *tory. They admitted the name was fictitious Mueller lived in a luxuriously- furnished new house which was proof of his smuggling activities Other prominent Germans who "emigrated" from the soviet zone had told the grand duchess ol Mueller's achievements in the hush-hush transportation business. When he was in the western zones, Mueller denounced the Russian "barbarians," but when fie was in the Russian zone he became a communist, anxious to lelp the cause by smuggling leaflets across the border. Mueller and the grand duchess was to bring the American 2 Killed as 2 Dutch Army Planes Collide Amsterdam, Holland, (#)—Two 3utch military planes collided in he air over Tilburg Thursday tiling all 12 occupants.

Humors circulated that indiscreet junior officers—without consulting headquarters — ordered Mueller to return and finish'the job. but the army denied the reports. Mueller, the army said, vowed never to cross the border again. Some of the grand duchess" valuable still were in the Russian zone, according to army files. Later an American armored column went to Eschwege, got the remainder of the treasure and took t to Bad Nauheim. There it was inventoried and taken to a depository for safekeeping. News of the smuggling attempt reached high level officers after a receipt for the treasure was orwarded to theater intelligence ieadquarters. Officials dropped the grand luchess a note, telling her what hey knew of the case. She con- ddcred the note as an official acknowledgment of her title to the treasure. Fearlnc, however, that the Russians mi[ht demand that the treasure be returned to the original estate, sh«- made no move to reclaim it immediately.

Douglass Buck, (R-Del.), floor man- dger of the senate rent bill, predicted Thursday the senate would vote Monday to extend rent controls through Feb. 29, 1948 but to drop most federal controls on building. Buck said he would advocate Ilftiiur construction controls to assure house acceptance of the senate bill and thereby speed it to the white house. Rent control now is slated to die June 30. Among its major actions on the rent bill thus far, the senate has voted: I. To permit rent ceilings to be increased up to 15 per cent over levels of Sept. 1, 1946, " where a tenant and a agree "voluntarily and faith" on a new lease Mueller, meanwhile, slill is waiting for his 7 per cent. He is still living in his swank house and is amazingly cheerful and cocky about the whole thing. When questioned about the incident, however, he squirmed a little and mentioned "a dent which would make you independent for life"—if the story were not revealed. Mueller said American clKorcts lelped him a lot in his "work." Some officials in the Russimi lone, he said, were willing to look he other way for a good smoke. ie said he didn't know how much he grand duchess' treasure was vorth. "I'd be satisfied.' 1 he said, "if just had my cut." Honor lowan Keokuk, (/P)—J. 0.

The provision was approved 48 to 26 despite democratic charges that it would enable landlords to "coerce and intimidate" tenants into agreeing to the 15 per cent boost. 2. To decontrol at least 5 per cent of the country's 600 rent control areas each month. This plan, sponsored by Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy, (R-Wis.), was intended to bring a gradual end of government rent regulations. The senate bill would set up area rent boards to decide local issues of decontrol and rent increases in hardship cases. However, the federal housing expediter would have the authority to reverse their decisions through February, 1948. Buck figured the house would swap its "local option" rent formula for the senate plan if the senate went along with tfie house on ending construction controls except on amusement buildings.

The latest communique from of in the government Higinio " Morinigo said loyalist forces had crosses the final water barrier befor Concepcion, the fall of whicf probably will mark the end o the rebellion. There still is a lot of country behind the rebels and in thei: control but it is largely habited and completely devoii. of military resources. Some guerrilla activity undoubtedly will follow the forecast fall of Concepcion but the roads into Brazi remain open and most South American observers expresset belief the insurgents would es- ca'pe into that country. The insurgents, including about a third of Paraguay's • army of 10,000 men, have sustained themselves since March 7 in the landlocked swamps around the-northern city of Concepcion. They had the general sympathy of the people of surrounding countries but the governments of those countries observed the strictest neutrality. The result was that Morinigo, who has blamed the revolt on "agents in the service of interna. tional communism," had an advantage. He had arms'and supplies and a supply line to the outside world while the rebels did not. Another reason for the apparent failure of the rebels was that only one of 3 simultaneous uprisings planned for March 7 was successful.

RYAN This week it is our happy privilege to present for "your listening pleasure the fines) and most intelligently assembled packages of recorded entertain- |ment we have |seen for quite some time. The ! album, entitlec SO.MEBODY LOVES ME, [presents eight of the best hits by songwriter 'Buddy De Syl- 'va. In picking eight out of more than fifty De Sylva smash song hits, much credit must be given to the boys at Capitol Records who call the turns. They have chosen nine of their top stars and then carefully selected for each star a tune best suited to the artist. So let's place the records on the changer of the Magnavox combination and listen to an enjoyable program of recorded music. The first record of. SOMEBODY LOVES ME teams Martha Tilton and Johnny Mercer in IF I HAD A TALKING PIC- TUBE OF YOU. Information on the label tells us that the tune is from the show "Sunny Side Up." Next tune is Peggy Lee singing SOMEBODY LOVES ME, with husband Dave Bar- hour's instrumental group backing the vocal in fine fashion. Hal Derwin next, singing WHEN DAY IS DONE. That tune would be good by anyone, and Hal's interpretation is tops with us. Let's listen now to the King Cole Trio tell us YOU'RE THE CREAM IN MY COFFEE. We're not taking any bets, but this recording looks like the trio's best effort yet. Then Margaret Whiting sings the currently popular revival APRIL SHOWERS. If you haven't as yet discovered Miss Whiting's enchanting style, this record will give you all the possible clues to her outstanding personality. Buddy De Sylva, Billy Rose and Al Jolson combined their talents in AVALON to give us an all time favorite. And the Pied Pipers arrangement of the song makes for easy listening. Olark Dennis scores next with TOGETHER, and here we must call attention to the excellent accompaniment given these songs and artists by conductor Paul Weston. We've only one record side left in this album, and \t is perhaps the best of all. Hit Parade star Andy Russell sings JUST A MEMORY. The song is one vhich should be played and leard more often. Not only is his Andy Russell's best record .0 date, but the song only proves the fact that the good old tunes will never die. Don't pass up the chance to hear and have this album. It's perfect—as a sift to yourself or to anyone. We'll be seeing •ou —at the Les Reed Music Co., 106-1J2 North Delaware. See Truman Veto of Tax, Labor Bills By LTLE C. WILSON U. F. Staff Correspondent Washington, (U.R)—Presidential vetoes of republican labor and income tax reduction bills were forecast Friday as congress dispersed for a holiday before the final voting. Both bills are expected to reach President Truman next week. There is little more than a lone- shot chance that Mr. Truman will President accept either bill. But congress Asuncion might be able to enact labor control legislation, despite a veto, with some expected help from the democrats. There seems to be no chance ;hat Income tax reduction could survive a veto. Both the senate and house passed labor control bills with better than two-thirds majorities. But the senate fell well below a two-thirds vote in passing its tax bill this week. Sen. Walter F, George, Ga., the op senate democrat on tax maters, said he thought Mr. Truman vould veto the tax bill and the enate would sustain him. George rated for the tax measure. But he aid he would not vote to over- ide a veto because the president s responsible for the fiscal con ition of the government an hould be followed on taxes. Sen te democrats already had enoug otes to sustain a veto. George respective switch seemed to na own their ability to kill the bi f the president desires to do it. But Chairman Harold E. Knut on, (R.- Minn.) of the house waj nd means committee said Mi ruman should sien the tax bi ecause the nation is "demandin lat the present near-conflscator afes be cut now.' Since there is now a surplus i rospect both for the current fis al year and for fiscal 1948, Knut on said, "it must be concede hat a veto of the tax bill woul e dictated by a political consid ration." The tax and labor bills hav een put in final compromis irm after conferences betweer epresentatives of the house an le senate. The house bowed sub antially to senate insistence tha the proposed income tax reduction e more equitably distributed an lat some of the harsher labor ontrol provisions be eliminated. House and senate republican adership agreed in these com romises that they would go as fa s they could to obtain legislation hich would have an outsid hance of President Truman's ap roval. The house will act first on oth compromise bills next week Mr. Truman signed this month e bill to outlaw portal-to-porta ay suits. Organized labor pro esied, but chose to concentrate its al efforts on obtaining: a veto o e labor vontrol bill now coming p. Belief that the president wii eto both bills is based largely on s public statements. The compromise bill would re- uce income taxes from 30 pel nt on net taxable incomes up to $1,000 a year to 101 per cent in the high brackets. Between $1,00( and $1,395 the reduction would be graduated from 30 to 20 per cent The .cut would be 20 per cent on incomes between 51,395 and $79,728: From $79,728 to $302,369 the cut would be 15 per cent. The house conferees yielded to senate demands that the reductions be effective July 1 instead of retroactive to last Jan. 1. Mr. Truman is less definitely committed to veto the labor bill. But it far exceeds the limits oi legislation which .he suggested to congress in his annual message last January. At that time he warned against punitive legislation restricting the rights of the rank and file merely to puunish a few union leaders. Expect Suggestions of Truman Advisers on Military Training Plan Washington. (U.PJ—The whit house is expected to make publi within a few days the recom mendations of President Truman advisory commission on militar; training. Dr. Karl T. Compton, presiden of the Massachusetts Institute o Technology and chairman of th commission, presented to Mr. Tru man Friday the program that i has developed during the past months. On the basis of the report, Mr Truman will renew his request t congress for a system of youth training to build up the nation 1 trained reserve emergency. in event of an Navy Expects to Lose 40.0 Doctors by July! Washington, (U.R)—The navy expects to lose over 400 regular navy doctors between now and July 1 despite intense efforts io build up its medical corps. A spokesman for the medical corps disclosed that the loss from resignations has reached 44 per cent of those serving on VJ-day. Despite an authorized strength of 4,315 medical officers in the peacetime navy, only 1,244 regular doctors are expected to be still on duty on July 1. The navy feels that one of the primary reasons for losing its medical personnel is the compara- tiveiy lower pay of service doctors in relation to the incomes possible in civilian life. In an attempt to meet this problem, the navy has asked congress to authorize bonuses of S100 a month to its medical officers. Defective V-2 Rocket Blast Shakes City EJ Paso, Tex., (U.R!—At least one United States city had an inkling of rocket warfare Friday, and El ^"aso was definitely not favorably mpressed. Thursday night a 41 ton modified German -V-2 rocket roared over this city of 150,000 population at 720 miles per hour, swept on past hustling Juarez, Mexico, just across the Rio Grande river, and crashed into a hillside' one mile south of the city. Mexican officials said there was no loss of life or property damage in the impact area. The alcohol powered guided missile, fired 65 miles away at the White Sands, N. Mex., testing grounds, ripped a crater 20 feet deep and 40 feet across in the hillside where it struck. Col. H. R. Turner, commanding officer at the White Sands guided missile experiment grounds, said a faulty gyroscope let the rocket go astray. He said it was fired to test certain "small parts," and was not part of the White Sands program of upper air research. Tar Paper and Tires Destroyed in Ship Fire Philadelphia, (U.R)— Tons of tar paper and tires were destroyed Thursday night in a stubborn fire aboard the liberty ship Barbara Fritchie at her Delaware river pier. The flames resisted firemen and crews of 2 city fireboats for 4 hours before being brought under control. The ship developed a list under the weight of the water poured into it but fire and shipping officials said there was no danger the vessel would capsize.

The increase during the month of $207,000,000 was mostly in the field of installment indebtedness, the board said. There was a 4 per cent increase in installment loans with the aggregate at the end of April about 2-3rds above the April, 1946, level. Installment credit outstanding on automobile sales was up 9 per cent. Its total now is more than $750,000,000. When grasshoppers are plentiful, garter.snakes live on the insects.
