tkt Newt, Frederick, M4U i'iinrAÂ»y, Ksvenber SI, 1951 U. S. Weather Plane Is Shot DownByRuss WASHINGTON* Nov. 23, , Che Navy announced today a twjn- mglned weather reconnaissance Â·lane has been missing since Nov. t with its crew of 10. There are ASKS that it was shot down into the Sea of Japan by Russian fight- HTfi A short time before the Navy Issued its report, it was disclosed that Russia protested to the United States Nov. 7 that an American reconnaissance-type plane crossed the Siberian border, was chased tnd fired upon by Russian fighters, and was last seen disappearing toward the sea. In answer to press inquiries about the Soviet protest, the Navy said a twin-engined bo'mber on United ' Nations weather reconnaissance patrol was missing and presumed tost The Navy did not say the aircraft had been shot down by the Russians. Nor did it say in what area it was lost. Still Under Investigation It described the plane as a Neptune P2V Lockheed, a long-range patrol bomber designed primarily for weather and other reconnaissance and for anti-submarine work. Presumably it was based in Ja.- pan, about 600 miles from Vladivostok. The big Russian naval port lies about 70 miles northeast of the short strip of border between North Korea and Siberia. "The matter is stll under searching investigation," the Navy stated. Another indication that the American plane may have been shot jnto the sea was the decorations just awarded in Moscow to two Soviet navy fliers for "exemplary fulfillment of their service duties." The award of the medals was prominently displayed in the Moscow press without disclosing what the pilots did to get them. Inquiry here, despite restrictions of official secrecy in effect for more than two weeks, brought out evidence of the Soviet protest about the alleged border incident Similiar To Previous Case Responsible authorities here said they believe the Vladivostok protest almost certainly concerns the action for which the pilots were decorated. The whole affair bears a striking resemblance to Soviet fighter destruction of a U. S. Navy "Privateer" plane 20 months ago. The Russian Government also claimed that plane had flown over its territory, but the United States said the ship had been shot down by Red fighters while on a routine flight over the open Baltic Sea. In the present case, Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko summoned American Counsellor Hugh S. Cumming. Jr.. to his Moscow office and on Nov. 7 and protested (it was learned later) that an American plane had violated Russia's Siberian border and flown over Vladivostok. Gromyko said the flight WHS n violation of international law and that Soviet fighters pursued the plane and opened fire on it. The American craft, he said, was last seen disappearing toward the sea. Kept Incident Secret When Cumming relayed the protest to Washington without making it public. State Department officials also kept the secret in the face of inquiries and would say only that the matter was not one of great importance. But Newsweek Magazine reported from Paris last Wednesday that a Russian protest had been made. Newsweek gave details of the incident. The State Department look up the Russian charge with the Defense Department and Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, the American and United Nations Commander in the Far East, was asked to investigate. It is understood that Ridgway has assembled all the available facts and is expected to make a full report. One of the circumstances of the whole affair which drew comment among officials here was the decoration of the two Soviet fliers-Lt. Ivan Lukashev and Lt. Moise Shchukin The commendation given them was similar to the praise bestowed the Russian fliers "who shot down the Navy Privateer in the Baltic Area on April 8, 1950. PROBE SCHEDULED BALflMORE, Nov. 23--i/P) An investigation of the athletic program at the University of Maryland will begin next Tuesday or Wednesday. Judge William P. i Cole, Jr. announced today. j Judge Cole is chairman of the i University Board of Regents, j which was requested to under- lake the survey by Governor Me- Keldin. The Governor's request came Tuesday after a New York judge sentencing detendants in the basketball "fix" scandal criticized high-pressure collegiate athletics. He mentioned Maryland as an example of universities which overemphasize football.

Ends Trade Concessions To Red Group WASHINGTON, Nov. 23, (IP}-President Truman today ordered an end to trade concessions for Soviet Russia and Communist-run Poland. He also directed an embargo on imports of several types of furs from Russia and Red China. The order is effective Jan. 5. Congress required the action in legislation extending the reciprocal trade act, which calls in one section for suspension of tariff concessions to Soviet bloc countries. The concessions, giving several of these the benefit of tariff reductions granted to other countries, already have been ordered withdrawn from Bulgaria, Communist China and Czechoslovakia. Treaty provisions requiring six months advance notice had delayed action against Russia and Poland. Withdrawal of concessions from Communist Hungary will be delayed until next July 5 because of a treaty provision for one year advance notice. Furs Are Banned Congress directed that, as soon as practicable, the President should withdraw benefits of trade agreements which had made concessions "to imports from the USSR and to imports from any nation or area dominated or controlled by the foreign government or foreign organization controllirig the world Communists movement,'' and also should prevent importation of certain furs produced in Russia and 'ommunist China. ' The furs specified are ermine, fox, kolinsky, marten, mink, muskrat and weasel, either dressed or undressed. The ban on trie fur imports is complele; they may not be brought in at any rate of duty Mr. Truman's action was formal notification to the Treasury Department, which has charge of the customs service. Treaty Due To Expire The U. S. and Russia have a trade agreement dating back to Aug. 4. 1937, providing for "most-favored nation" tariff treatment in their trade. The State Department gave the requisite advance notice of termination in a note delivered last July 6 to the Soviet Embassy. Under the most favored nation procedure, the U. S. binds itself to ?rant a pnrtlcular nation the same benefits it grants to any other nation. The treaty w i t h Poland was signed June 15, 1932, and contained similar most-favored nation pro- %'isions. Poland was notified last Tuly 6 that the U. S. wanted to .enninate lhes.p provisions. The State Department said that since he Polish Government did not ajjree !o tho proposed modification, t is expected the entire treaty will expire on J a n u a r y 5. Find Spot WherÂ« Money Was Hidden For Weeks BOSTON, .Nov. 23 Â£--Ths Boston American reported today in a copy-righted article that Federa" Bureau of Investigation agents "have discovered the spot where they are convinced the $1,230,00( cash stolen in ttte fabulous Brink robbery of January 17. 1950 was hidden for several weeks." The newspaper located the hideaway "in the backwoods of Stough- orj, near the Canton town line and said it was here, in a well-furnished camp, that the bandits divided their loot. The Boston office of the FBI, asked about the report, said it had no comment. The American said FBI men have ''definitely established" that the cut and burned parts of a Ford truck found in the Stoughton dump, seven miles from the camp, are pieces of the Brink getaway car, stolen from the Boylston Street auto agency of Lalime and Partridge before the Brink robbery. "The identity of several men who were in possession of this truck several days after the robbery now is known," the newspaper said. Special Attention To Winterizing Engines With the approach of cold weather, farmers should give special attention to winterizing the engines on their farms. According to Guy W. Gienger, associate Extension agricultural engineer of the University of Maryland, practically all farmers are familiar with the importance of special winter protection for tractors, trucks, and automobiles that are used throughout the year. Briefly, this means changing oil more frequently, keeping the battery fully charged, and using only anti-freeze of an approved type. However, Mr. Gienger states, greater attention should be given to winterizing small engines that are not normally used during the cold season. Such engines are found on combines, balers, spray rigs, garden tractors, and even lawn mowers. An engine that runs well today, he warns, may not be in operating condition next spring unless it is properly prepared for winter. This means more than draining the water from the engine ?nd putting it in the shed. Here, in a nutshell, is how you you can winterize an engine: Drain the oil and replace with new oil- clean the air cleaner and fill with clean oil; check the spacing on spark plugs and breaker points; pour about two ounces of light oil in each spark plug hole; drain the Ras tank, carburetor, radiator, and rngine block; turn over the engine a few times, with the ignition off jo distribute the light oil around ihe valves and piston rings. Additional information on winterizing farm engines can be obtained from county agricultural "gents. Says U. S. Has Lost Asiatic Leadership SAN FKANCISCO, Nov. 23--UP) --Mayor-elect Arsenio Lac.son of Manila told a news conference today that (he United Stales has no foieign policy and has lost its leadership in Asia. He also said he did not believe the newly-elected Philippine Senate would r a t i f y the Japanese peace treaty, who.se reparations clause he described ns too vague. He added that the Filipino people do not believe the Japanese can be trusted. Larson was asked whether General MacArthur really hud "Demo- crnti/ed" the Japanese, and he replied sharply "He should have first de-nnimnlized them."

FOLEY ELECTRIC SAW FILING and KET00THING Discarded Saws Out Like New C. YODER Roundry Arc. Thurmont. Md. Had Atrocity Report Before WASHINGTON, Nov. 23 M5~ Con. Matthew Ridgway Informec the United Nations weeks ago his headquarters had received and was investigating reports ,that , 8,00( American soldiers were murderec by Chinese and North Korean Com- munlsts, the Defense Department said tonight. C. Herschel Schoolcy, chief 01 the Pentagon Press Section, told reporters about the Ridgway re ports in response to inquiries. Gen. Ridgway, who is Unitec Nations Supreme Commander in the Far East, informed the U. N. that the atrocity reports covered a period up to July 20. Ridgway was described as having said that while the total of reports received from various sources and in various forms added up to about 8,000, the number of atrocity cases upon which exact evidence had been obtained up to July 20 numbered about 400. The General's statement on the war crimes was contained in an otherwise routine U. N. report for the period of the last two weeks of August. Relayed through various military and diplomatic channels, it appeared to have reached Paris, where the United Nations Assembly was meeting, about Nov. 12. Accounts For Acheson Statement In light of this, special significance now attached to the cold and angry statement of Secretary of State Dean Acheson to the Assembly on Nov. 13 that Red China was far below "the general level of barbarism." Acheson presumably received the Ridgway report before he made his successful bid to have Communist China barred from a United Nations seat. As now disclosed, Ridgway's report to the U. N. on atrocities was made days, and perhaps -weeks, before an American Army Colonel handed out to war correspondents in Korea his own statement that about 5,500 American and 290 other Allied war prisoners had been executed by the Communist enemy. This was on Nov. 14. In a statement to the press four days later, Ridgway confirmed in general the authenticity ot the announcement by Col. James M. Hanley, Chief oÂ£ the ,8th Army's War Crimes Investigating Section.

Record High Living Cost WASHINGTON, Nov. 23, (JP-The Government's cost of living index climbed to still another new high Oct. 15, reaching a point 10.1 per cent above the prices prevailing just before the Korean war. As a result of the rise, a million auto workers will get a penny-an- hour wage boost through "escalator" clauses in their contracts hitched to the rise-and-fali of the Government index. That one cen an hour, if not taken away by a later drop in the index, will cost the auto industry $20 million the next year, on the basis of the 40- hour work week. The Government's Bureau of Labor Statistics measures trie retail prices paid by average city families for the things they need to live these days. The index of those prices is compared to the 1935-3S period, which is regarded as 100. Food Prices Press Upward The Oct. 15 index, under the Bureau's new method of computation, was 187,4 per cent of the 1935-39 average, an increase of 0.4 per cent from Sept. 15. It was 6.7 per cent above a year ago. Retail food prices pressed up 0.8 per cent and were the main factor in the rise in the overall index. The old-style index, on which the auto contracts are based because they were negotiated before the Bureau changed some of its methods of figuring the index was 187.8 on Oct. 15. That was an increase of 0.7 per cent over September and 7.4 above a year ago. General Motors and Ford Company immediately announced the number of their employes who would get raises under the formula. GM said 314,000 hourly-rated workers would get the one cent an hour boost beginning Dec. 1.
