' ' XWELV1 The News, Frederick, Md., Frldsiy, November 30, 1951 Man Caught Under Slide Is Rescued Bigging frantically, fellow work- 'nen. on the new Catoctin Estates idditioh, saved John L. Kinna. 7 Winchester street from being mried alive on the job, Thursday tfternoon.. Kinna, well-known local plum- »ef installing primary sewer con- lections to 18 new homes nearing ajmpletionf by Contractor Earl F. Sargett on Biggs avenue; was working in an eight-foot ditch md blasted through rocky terrain.- His work of connections was for nib-contractor Reese Warner, fohnsville plumber. With Kinna In the deep ditch was Thomas Catkins, a workman for the general contractor, Hargett. Was Buried By Debris Without warning, the rock stud- Jed walls of the trench collaps- sd, burying Kinna tinder an estimated "several truckloads of de- oris. mostly small boulders," Mr. Hargett said. Watkins worked himself clear and shouted for other workmen nearby for help in rescuing Kinna ivho was buried out of sight. Workmen frantically tore at the rocks and dirt with their hands st the location Watkins had last seen Kinna before the cave-in. He was found, stunned and partially suffocated, bleeding profusely from a serious cut on the bead. The men pulled him bodily from the the hole they had dug and carried him to a porch of one of the houses under construction. In Satisfactory Condition He regained consciousness almost as sOon as the contractor and sub-contractor arrived where he was receiving first-aid. An ambulance rushed him to Frederick Memorial Hospital where his injuries in addition to the bad head laceration, also proved to include a cut left arm and a fractured right shoulder. Hospital authorities said his condition was satisfactory but he remained hospitalized. Mr. Hargett said the cave-in and injury of Kinna was the first major accident in his experience as 3 contractor and came just as two- thirds of the new Catoctin Estates houses are becoming ready for occupancy. He gave full credit to Watkins and other workmen for undoubtedly saving Kinnaf's .life fay quick-thinking and immediate bare-handed action to remove him from the bottom of the mass of stone and dirt The cave-in came in the main trench along Biggs avenue and was unforseeabie construction men said. The ditch was dredged out by a powerful back-hoe machine but still required considerable blasting, to loosen and break up rock formations plentiful under the top soil GOVERNMENT SUED BALTIMORE, Nov. 29-- (/TV-An $8.000 claim against the government was filed here today as tho result of an Air Force Bomber's crash last April near indrcws Field.

F1., Nov. 29, (/Pi- President Truman announced bluntly today that the fighting will continue in Korea as long as there is a possibility of United Nations forces being "caught off-balance" by the enemy in a peace trap. "The continued pressure of our forces on the enemy constitutes the strongest incentive for the latter to agree to a just armistice," the President told a news conference at this Naval submarine base. "Any premature slackening of our effort would cost us more casualties in the long run than need be lost." . The President followed the reading of his prepared statement with an off-the-cuff lecture to press associations and newspapers on what he said were fake cease fire stories that grow out of hot competition for news. Stories Called Fibtes He singled out a premature armistice story by the United Press' Roy Howard in 1918, and an Associated Press story out of Seoul. Korea, yesterday asserting that orders from the highest sources, possibly the White House, brought ground fighting to a halt in Korea. Mr. Truman termed the Roy Howard story a fake and said the AP story was on a parallel with i'. The President said he understood ye...-»,.ays At' .story out of Seoul .sprang out of the intense competition for news. Addressing himself then to the representatives of the press associations and the independent newspapers at the conference, he said they must be very careful in this very dangerous time to stick to the truth. It seems to him, he said, that the welfare of the United Slates, the United Nations and the world as a whole is much more important than any competitive situation that may exist among any newshounds. Mr. Truman, in his prepared statement, said he hoped everybody understood "there has been no cease fire in Korea and that there can be none until an armistice has been signed." He said it is our d u t y to continue fighting until UN objectives are achieved. "Only then will the future safely of Ihe United Nations forces, including those who are prisoners of the enemy, be assured." he said. "We can nol allow our men to be cnught ofl'-bnlance by the enemy in case we cannot reach a satisfactory armistice agreement." A spokesman for the Associated Press in New York said: "There is no foundation for suggesting 'pressure' was involved in an Associated Press news dispatch from Seoul Wednesday speculating on the battle zone indications thai orders causing n lull in the Korean ground fighting came from the 'highest sources, possibly from the White House.'" Ground Shooting Hulled "It wns a fact that the ground shooting was halted as a result, of orders or directives given to the U. N. Fighting forces. "The AP dispatch in question was part of a frontline rcpertortni effort to explain the effect as well as the possible origins of orders which are still surrounded by mystery. The Associated Press did not report a 'cease-fire' order had been issued. It has fully reported the facts, so far as they have been obtainable and observable, including all authoritative statements which have (1) denied any 'cease-fire' order has been issued, but 2 not, disputed the fact that a lull developed in frontline ground fighting." The United Press in New York had no comment on the President's statement. Howard Publishes Stalemeni There was no direct comment from Howard, now president of Scripps-Howard newspapers and president and editor of New York World-Telegram and The Sun. But he authorized the following statement in the World-Telegram and Sun: "The armistice incident of 1918 referred to by President Truman occurred on Nov. 7. 1918, not on Oct. 27 as President Truman x x x recalls. "It was based on a dispatch furnished to Mr. Howard at Brest by Admiral Henry B. Wilson, commander in chief of all American Naval forces in European waters. and simultaneously with its release by the admiral to the fleet. "It was given to Mr. Howard by Admiral Wilson in the belief and with the assurance that it was official, the information having been just received by Admiral Wilson from the American Naval attache in Paris via the Navy's private wire between the embassy and Admiral Wilson's headquarters." The President told the newsmen that: 1. He has no facts to justify any action yet as to Charles Oliphant, chief counsel for the Internal Revenue Bureau whose name was figured in a House Ways and Means Subcommittee's in- ' quiry into tax scandals, I He was told that Senator Nixon (R-Calif) has suggested that he guarantee freedom from reprisals to government employes n tney report ceses o* wrong doing. Always Had Immunity - The President, replied sharply that Government employes have always had such immunity. And he added that whenever any man has knowledge .of malfeasance and doesn't report it, he's a party to the crime. ' 2. The only sinister conspiracy he knew of in the Ohio election last year in which Republican Senator Robert A. Taft was reelected was in the slush fund spent on the Republican side of the campaign, This was his reply to Taft's charge that there was a "sinister conspiracy" to defeat him. Mr. Truman said there was no conspiracy on the, part of the Democrat*, that they simply tried unsuccessfully to elect a Democrat. 3. He didn't know Senator Kefauver D-Tenn) had given friends permission to enter his name in the Democratic Presidenlial preference primary in California, but he had seen that Kefauver was perfectly willing to let the lightning strike him if it felt that way. However, he added, anybody who wants to has a right to run. 4. He hasn't received an official report on charges that Russian fighter planes 'recently shot down a Navy Neptune bomber over the Sea of Japan. He said, of course, he didn't like it, if it is COUSIN ROY Says -- Today .loin "Hospital Aid, Inc." ''19 Chev. 5- Pass. Coupe '46 Oldsmobile -1-Door Radio, Healer Hydra- Malic '42 Stude. 4-Dr. Champ.

The President said he and Senator Wherry had many political dogfights, but they were always personally good friends.
