So successful has the American air transport service into the city been that the Keds are obviously casting about for a method of stopping xt. They announce that Red fighter squadrons are engaged :n extensive maneuvers near the air corridor used by the American planes. Any day they may manufacture an "incident."' Stronj notes of protest handed to Russian ambassadors in Washington, London and Paris seem to have had the effect of making the Communist beast more determined. The dispute over Russia's land blockade of Berlin is now in its fourth week. But the blockade is not the only issue. Involved is Hussia's avowed attempt to end four-power rule of Berlin and drive the three western powers out. It is becoming clearer day by day that the American people cannot censure too severely those in authority--military or civil--who fell into this Communist trap in Berlin. Who halted American troops for 10 days short of the German capital so the Reds could enter it first and arrange the present set-up? Russia has made several moves toward the goal of uniting all Germany under Russian control. The western powers cannot permit that to happen, if they are compelled to make war" to prevent it. But they b*ve permitted themselves to be placed on the defensive, sur- Tne announcement was made last night by the Interior Ministry ol the seny-autonomous Yugoslav- state of Croatia. It said the groups were formed by war-time Nazi collaborators, now In exile, and an unidentified "foreign intelligence service." The communique, which appeared in the Communist party organ. Borba. said the spy groups arc led by Ante Pavelic, top Yugoslav war criminal and Premier of the Croatian puppet government during the war and a Dr. Krunoslav Dragano- vic. who it identified as a "priest attached to the Vatican " The announcement said the plotters :eRi 19 groups totalling 95 persons into the country during the past year and added that Yugoslav security police nabbed all of them. Mas* trial* of the terrorists are expected to bec'.n today. :he com- muniQu* said, Pavelic is believed Jo be in exile in Italy. Draganovic also is believed to have been outside the country since the war. ·An authoritative Vatican ^ource denied '.hat Dr. Krunoslav Drag- onovic. a priest was involved in sending spies into Yugoslavia. The source said Dr. Dragonovic was instructor in theology at Zagreb until 1945. when he sought refuge at Vatican Citv. He is now attached to the Ecclesiastical College of The communique charged that Paveiic sent in plotters entrusted with ' ;he ta.'-k of or-jnp.iims armed bandit croups for the purpose of committing terror and espionage in Yugoslavia for a foreign intelligence service." Harry Truman were plied with stale drinks and much argument. It was the final, dying gasp of the anti-Administration coalition. The President's friends were begged to go to him and persuade him to withdraw and nominate General Eisenhower. A Senator who is a close personal friend of Mr. Truman answered. "It's too late. There was a time two or three weeks ago when it might have ineeii possible But you have all made so much noise end thrown so many bricks at the President he wouldn't pull out Philadelphia.

No thanks " One reason for these frantic campaigns 4o get togetner 011 some candidate other than Mr. Truman is a pre-election analysis by the mysterious Louis Bean. He is a quiet, shy economist »n the Department of Agriculture whose election forecasts have hit the bell for the past 14 years In Washington. Louis Bean ss regarded with something appruaclting awe His figuring trends and statistics with a slide rule comes out in a Democratic victory in 1948, it the national ticket has any pulling power. Bean has discreetly avoided mentioning his boss, Harry Truman, but those who have seen his charts say that without a question the winning ticket does not have hsm at the head. According to the Bean analysis, chances are better in in any year since 19-JO. The big IF is if the ticket can bring all the pro-Democrat voters to the polls. Privately. Louis Bean has Truman with that drawing power. Registration figures from one of the three key states this fall t«f.;i to bacfc up Bean's claim. The registered Democrats in West Vir- The vice-presidential post can go to the man Mr. Truman picks, as ; he controls the convention. But there is no evidence of any desire to foreclose the contest by orders · from the White House. On the contrary, the vice-presidential vacancy cfTordp an opportunity to -. give the delegates a chance to ex' press themselves. In the final analysis, the Presi- · dent will have to step in and indicate hi* choice. The dilemma is an extraordinary one. To placate the south i« one objective. To p'aca:e the New Dealers :n the north is another, and to placate the territorial claimants :s still an. other. Justice Doug'as for Vice Presi- .dent would satisfy the New Dealers but not the south. Senator O'Mahoney wouid please the New Dealers and the west but not the jouth. Representative Rayburn of Texas might satisfy north and south, as also would Senator Barkley of Kentucky. Maybe in all the talk about con; sti'.utiona! reforms affecting the vice presidency, some day" there " will be three vice presidents Certainly if it had been feasible it would have furnished a way out of the difficulty in which the Democrats find themselves this vear If they could select one from the south, one from she west and one from the east they could read. ily harmonize their party differ'. ences. Already the tact of the men be- j hind the scenes in the Truman '. camp is settling one serious problem--civil rights. The plan is to , repeat the 1944 civil rights plank : from the Democratic platform on which Franklin Roosevelt ran for i his fourth term. Surely anything ' that Mr. Roosevelt approved would | to amend it from both north and · south but the controversy will end ' by net changing a syllable of it. The collapse of the Eisenhower .draft idea has left the Truman ; forces in control here, and they will write the platform. Just as in the case of the Republican convention, when the anti-Dewey forces could not agree on a com- 1 promise candidate, so here, too, · there is no solidarity in the opposition to Mr. Truman. The only .- reason why the Eisenhower move- · mem gained universal support was the fact that his views on current political snd economic issues had not been expressed, so each faction · thought he would adopt their particular view later on. The revolt inside the Democratic party cannot be dismissed as insignificant, even -lough no opponent was agreed upon by the anti-Truman forces as the man around whom to rally. The revolt is deep-seated and will not be squelched by the forth coming Truman nomination. Too many of the men 'here who are supporting the President do " not believe he has a ghost of a , chance of being elected next autumn. There is a noticeable air of defeatism. It will require some menial acrobatics for the New Dealers to embrace the Truman nomination after the convention. Yet thev have nowhere else to \ go--they do not want to join WaS: lace and lose what chance they ' might have to reorganize the Dem[ ocrat:c party along New Deal lines \ if Truman is beaten this year. The best chance for harmony Dear Dorothy Due: I am a girl j of 18 and I think I am in love with j a boy of 22 who a very good to I me. but he likes to drink. I told him I would inmrry him whenever he got a house of his own. There are so many people I know ·who married when they were very young.

A couple who are very much in love can become miserable from constantly receiving instructions from all of their relatives. My whole life already has been planned out for me by my in-laws, and I -was not even consulted about the matter.

A YOUNG WIFE ANSWER: No one can deny that something drastic, with boiling oil in it, should be done to the troublemakers who feel that they have a call to map out the lives of all and sundry with whom they come in contact. This especially is the case when the victims of the oracles happen to be young married people, who are supposed to be just pining for advice from Grandma and Aunt Susan and the other assorted relatives about how to run their homes and manage their wives and husbands. Probably they have caused more tears to be shed, more feuds to be started and more homes to be broken up than sny other one thing in the -.vorld. But don't forget that while the givers of unsought advice are pests, those on the receiving line are not without guilt, because in their way they always are out looking for trouble, with chips on their shoulders just spoiling for a fight. an "N have a "V" number.

July 12 {,?}--Three Washington area newsmen protest- jeJ yesterday that proposed court rules for Maryland would "gag" the ; i press on certain kinds of news, t In a forum over station WGAY, · they illustrated their views by citing the capture last week of a Baltimore janitor who. police said, ad, mitted the slaying of two 11-year- j old girls, one in Washington and the other in Baltimore. Joseph M. Mathias. Bethesda lawyer and newspaperman, said contempt rules- in Baltimore, similar , to those proposed for the state, pre- j vented the publication by papers j there of the accused man's confes- j sion and pictures and other details, which were carried by the Washington press. Phillip J. Austensen. president of the Prince Georges County Press Association and a reporter for the Washington Post, contended that the right of mothers in Washington and Baltimore to know that the girls" attacker had been confined "ranks equally, at least, to a fair trial for the slayer."" John W. Coffman. Jr., president of the Montgomery County Press Association and editor of the Takoma Journal, attacked the pro- I posed Rule 9. which would forbid accounts of actions and statements of suspects and prevent officials from discussing cases for publication. ards of war. When the war dragged on and on it looked as though it would still be going by October 1945. So in July 1945 Congress extended the five-year period for another three years. It said that any one who got his term insurance before Jan. 1, 1946. could keep it for eight years before converting to a permanent form. Those who got their insurance after Jan. 1. 1946. v.-ould have to convert within, five years. Now those five and eight-year periods are about to start running out I mean, if a veteran got his insurance in November, 1940. his eight year term will be up this coining November. Starting in October, the number of policies which will run- out will increase from hundreds to hundreds of thousands. If Congress hadn't passed an extension of term insurance these policies would have to be converted to permanent forms before the term ran out--or else they would expire. The extension means that any veteran with a term policy may extend his insurance for another five-year period--but at a higher premium. How much higher? Say you were 21 when you went into the Navy and first got your insurance. You paid a premium of $6.50 a month for S10.000 worth. That was in January 1941. which means your eight years will expire this coming January. You'll be 29 years old then. The new premium will be S7.00 a month for $10.000. In other words, the new premium will depend on your age at the time your terra runs out. The VA does not automatically extend your term insurance. It is up to you to do it.
