TWELV1 the New«, Frederick, Md.. Tuesday. November W, mi Asks Soviets Accept West' Arms Proposal PARIS, Nov, 19 W--Secretary of State Dean Acheson appealed today to the world, and obviously to the Soviet Union most of all, to accept Western, disarmament proposals as a turning point on the road to peace. Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky, who earlier had laughed scornfully at the proposals, sat in poker-faced silence during the one hour and 20 minutes in which the Secretary patiently explained the arms reduction plan to the 60-nation Political Committee. After the committee- adjourned until tomorrow, Vishinsky left the room without saying whether he ·had relented in any degree. He is expected to reply later this week. "I believe t h e s e proposals," Acbeson said at the beginning of a detailed explanation of the United States-Bjritish-French program "if accepted could and would produce a turning point in history, a turning point at which the world could turn back from the tensions, the dangers which confront all of us in every country, could relax the effort toward armament which is going on all over the world and by doing so could find a way to solve some of the greatest questions which divide East and West." Thorough. Analysis Acheson's speech was the most thorough analysis of the arms proposal yet made in the U. N. and also the first that a Secretary of State has made in a U. N. committee. Acheson said: "There is no magic 5n them (these proposals) which by itself can solve the trouble of this very grievously stricken world. They are proposals which in my estimation open up a broad highway along which we can all march together to find solutions to our problems, to reduce the tensions and difficulties between us, to move toward peace, toward cooperation and away from the very dangerous rapids which all of us can see before us Can Fritter Away Peac* "We can follow the broad, clear path, or we can turn aside into the dark and noisesome alleys of propaganda and bickering and as,, sertion and counter-assertions We * can fritter away the hope of the world. "We can fritter it away into small advantages that are taken of one another here and there for minor and really silly purposes. Or we can seize this great opportunity before us. My country is willing to seize it Our colleagues in France and Great Britain are willing to seize it with us. I believe that around this table there are scores of delegates who are willing to seize it also. The great question is are all of us ready to do this?" A burst of applause rang out as Acheson, wearing a grey suit and a blue polka-dot tie, sat back and listened to Jules Moch, France, also support the plan. The proposals are contained in a resolution made public yesterday calling for a merger of the Atomic Energy Commission and the Commission for conventional armaments into a single 12-nation disarmament commission, w h o s e members would be the same as the membership of the 11-nation Security Council plus Canada. Would Take Arms Census The Commission would work out plans for a world arms census with full inspection and verification, a balanced reduction of arms, and n treaty to be dealt with at a disarmament conference which would include every country in the world T h e disarmament commission would commence work not later than 30 days from the adoption of the resolution by the Assembly and it would render periodic reports to the Security Council and to the Assembly. Secretary-General Trygve Lie would convene the world conference whenever the commission advised it was ready. "We wish to go to a system that prohibits and abolishes the use of atomic weapons," Acheson said. He explained the first step must be an international inventory of arms on a continuing basis, then disarmament to levels agreed upon, prohibition of the atomic bomb, and finally, safeguards to make sure all nations are complying. Clarifying Statement Requested WASHINGTON. NOV. is The Defense Department disclosce tonight it has asked Gen. Matthew B, Ridgway for a more specific "clarifying" statement on the reported Communist slaughter ol some 5,500 American prisoners of war in Korea. High officials at the Pentagon said they expect Gen. Ridgway's headquarters in Tokyo to issue a new statement very soon, perhaps within 24 hours. These officials said it should contain answers to certain specific questions sent to the Far Eastern Commander in a series of earlier messages from Washington. The latest message sent to Gen- EUdgway was sent today after Defense officials had digested the Supreme Allied Commander'* November 18 statement. Regretted Timing Over the week-end, Gen. Ridgway expressed regret over manner of timing of a report on the atrocities released to newsmen iast Wednesday "by Col. James M. Sanley, chief of the War Crimes Section of the U. S. Eighth, Army in Korea. Ridgway's confirmed nor denied the accuracy of Hanley's figures, but said it was regrettable that the information was not coordinated before it was released. Some sources in Washington and Tokyo have suggested there may have been duplications in Hanley's reports on the killings. The story had caused anguish among thousands of families of captured American GI's and had shocked the nation. The Defense Department 1 fired back its new request for specific information and details because it was feared that many American families would construe Ridgway's statement to confirm the reports made by Hanley. High officials said the facts so far received from the Supreme Commander have not added substantially to the total of known American dead in the Korean campaign. These officials heavily accented the word "known." They said they expected Ridgway to make a clear distinction between Ihe grand total of reported but undocumented atrocities and known facts. statement neither Huge Six-Engine Jet Bomber Crashes; 3 Die EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif., Nov. 19, ff)--A mammoth six-engine jet bomber ci ashed shortly after a takeoff at this base this afternoon and the three crew members were killed, the Air Force announced. The huge B-4? stralojet, a high altitude and high speed bomber crashed to the ground a quarter of a mile west of the runway jusl after it Rot into the air. It exploded after the crash. Officials at the base In the desert, an Air Force flight test center, formerly named Muroc, Calif., said the'iix-pnfiine craft was beginning a routine test flight. Names of the three who died will not be announced until next of kin have been notified. The cauie of the crash was not k n o w n but will be the subject of an investigation by an officers' board, the Air Force said. The B-47 is America's newest and fastest atom bomb carrier. Several of the nation's foremost test mlots have been flying pilot evaluation tests on the huge craft. They include Maj. Charles Yeag- cr first man to fly faster than sound, Brig. Gen. Albert Boyd, commander of the secret flight test center here; Lt. Col. Frank K. Everest, Maj. Jack Ridley and Maj. Robert Mortland. Pilots assigned to the test program have been flying the B-47, beheved to be the world's fastest bomber, on two and three missions R day to familiarise themselves with its flight characteristics. Undecided Whether To Pick Candidate Or Let Voters Do It HAGERSTOWN. Nov. 19 0-Democratic leaders from Western Maryland's five counties tonight discussed the problems of electing a Democrat to Congress from the Sixth District, then agreed to meet next month and perhaps pick the man to try for the job. The 20 party men attending were split sharply on whether it was better to have the primary open or closed--whether to handpick the candidate themselves or let' the party voters settle it. George P. Mahoney, Democratic National Committee backer of the "harmony" drive, said the group should find out who would be available for the candidacy before the next meeting, to be called sometime next month. He said it was not necessary to select a candidate' tonight, but v/arned that time was growing short. He said it was the responsibility of the county central committees to "stop the rush of the Republicans." C. William Hetzer, Hagerstown contractor, was generally conceded the leading candidate for party support. Dawson Horine. Frederick, who has the support of a Democratic splinter organization in that county has declined to clarify his position as regards the nomination. Few Result* So Far Mahoney's announced campaign to harmonize the party so far has produced two discordant notes After a meeting of Eastern Shore party leaders last Wednesday Mayor Julius L. Tubman of Cambridge announced flatly he was going to be a candidate for Qon- gress from the Fiist District. This was after other area leaders failed to agree on a candidate to oppose Republican Rep. Edward T. Miller. H. Streett Baldwin, the Baltimore County Democratic leader, let out a yell when he heard Mahoney planned a similar meeting in the Second District composed of Baltimore, Carroll and Harford counties. This district also is represented by a Republican, James P. Devereux up for reelection. Baldwin complained he had not been consulted by Mahoney and questioned "how constructive" any meeting will be. The Democrats also are faced with usually heavy GOP strength in the Sixth District. It's now represented by Republican J. -Glenn Beall, of Frostburg. He does not plan to run for reelection to the House, aiming instead for his party's nomination to the Senate. Mahoney said his purpose of the meetings is to convince the Democrats they will have better chances of beating the Republicans in the three districts if they agree beforehand on one candidate. Hagerstown Salesman Of Securities Held PITTSBURGH, Nov. 19 W)-- Vlaurice J. Kramer, 50. of Hagerstown, Md., is being held in jail under $10,000 bond on charges of selling securities without a license state Police Sergeant John Me- hallick said today. Kramer was arrested in Erie November 14 by city police. He was taken to Mercer County to ^ace a similar charge, but was returned to Erie when the charge was dropped. Mehallick said Kramer is charged with selling about $6,800 worth of stock without a license to several farmers in he nearby North East area. Assistant District Attorney H VT. Drake of Mercpr County, said Cramer sold $3,200 worth of Cen- ral Chemical Corporation of Maryland stock to John McDowell, R.D. 3, Mercer. Drake said Kramer made full restitution to McDowell "and we dropped the charge, turning Kramer over to ~ie County authorities" Kramer in scheduled to receive hearing November 23. AID FOR ELDERLY Hagerstown, Nov. 19 (ff)--Elderly persons should be made to feel useful and not "fifth wheels" in households. Miss Marion Munroe of the Springfield State -Hospital said today. She told 100 social welfare workers at a regional conference, "it is important to give aged persons a feeling that they are doing something worthwhile." She said about one-third of the patients in the Springfield Hospital are 60 years or over and most are placed in foster homes upon discharge. Huggins Named Asst. Secy. Of Air Force KEY WEST.

Frederick County, Maryland. BLAMES TRUMAN HAMILTON, O., Nov. Ifl './p)-_ President Truman's name came up in a divorce case today. Judith McCullom told Common Pleas Court Judge P. P. Boli that her husband. Ben, told her he would get a divorce if she voted for Harry Truman for President if he runs again. She also accused him of cruelty. ··We wonder how Harry Truman will bear up under this with all of his other troubles." Judge Boli sa)d "Despite the enormity of this final charge, we are unconvinced the plaintiff is entitled to a decree " Most Medical Service For Those Over 45 HAGERSTOWN, Nov. 19 (fp)--A Health Department official predicted tonight that 20 years from now those persons above 45 will require 80 per cent of all medical services. They now require 50 per cent, he said. Dr. Mark Zeigler, chief of the Bureau of Medical Services for the State Department of Health, made this statement in addressing the one-day meeting of the Western Regional Conference of the Maryland State Conference of Social Welfare He said the figure on the medical service requirements will continue to increase in proportion to the extending of the Life span, which advances yearly. He said the country is getting so many old people it won't be long until they will be cared for in private homes instead of institutions. This is better, anyway, he added Elderly and chronically ill persons don't want isolation They would prefer a home where there is a real home atmosphere. SEARS SELLING CARS CHICAGO, Nov. 19 MP)--Sears Roebuck and Co, announced today it will begin selling a low-priced passenger automobile to be built by Kaiser-Frazer Corp. The new car, named the "All- state," will be sold in 17 cities in the south and southwest before Christmas. It will be built for Sears at the K-F Willow Run, Mich., works. Land Rescue Team Reaches Cumberland OAKLAND, Nov. 19 HP)--A seven-man Air Force land rescue team flew into Cumberland tonight in a snowstorm to help out in the search for the missing Air Force lieutenant aboard a bomber that crashed into the mountains near here Friday night. The rescue team arrived in a C-82 from Westover Air Force Base, Mass. The big packet plane also brought a three-quarter ton truck and trailer. The team, headed by an Alaskan and a Hawaiian, soon left for nearby Aurora, W. Va., where the rescue operations are based. All the men felt there was a good chance the missing airman First Lt. Prentice E. Ross Jr., may have bailed out of the plane before it exploded and crashed and that he may still be alive in a remote area. They based this on the fact the cover of his hatch, through which he would jump, hasn't been found --which would indicate he ripped it off when he parachuted out. The new arrivals, plus more help expected from the Pittsburgh and Langley Air Force fields, will bring the number of rescuers up to about 250 tomorrow. Helping out are volunteers from both the West Virginia and Maryland National Guards and nearby fire departments. A weekend snowstorm almost halted searching parties today, but £.1 Air" Force helicopter joined in the search and assisted m the work. Weather conditions tomorrow are expected to permit more scouting. About 10,000,000 square miles of the earth's surface still are unexplored by man. Asked To Set Aside Collazo's Sentence WASHINGTON, Nov. 18 W)-L Oscar Collazo's attorney asked the U. S. Court of Appeals today to set aside the death sentence given the Puerto Rican. for his part in the attempt to assassinate President Truman last year. Attorney Leo. A. Rover argued that there were errors In many rulings by the trial Judge, the late T. Alan Goldsborough. Assistant U. S. Attorney John D. Lane replied that Goldsborough's rulings were "highly defensible." Collazo has been confined for months on "death row" in the District of Columbia jail. Hearing of the appeal did not require that he be brought to the court room. His wife, Rosa, was there and listened impassively to the arguments. Collazo, 37, was convicted specifically of murder of a White House SAVE MONEY ON HUDSON DEMONSTRATORS Low Mileage 1951 Hudsons New car title and guarantee.
