Tex., Feb. 9—(UP) •Obscure Art Doering of Denver was the "one-day wonder" of the Texas open today, after he matched the sevcn-under-par first round card of Byron Nelson. The near record. 64's turned in yesterday by Doering and Nelson Save them a three-stroke "cushion" over three other golfers, Frank Stranahan, amateur' from Nelsons home town of Toledo. O, Jimmy Demarct of Houston, Tex., and Lawson Little of JVIonterrev, Cal. In order to tie Nelson, Doering. a late finisher, had a hole a chip shot from the edge of the 18th green which gave him a birdie and a 34-30 card. Nelson turned in a 3331 reading. Nelson had seven birdies and 11 pars to give the tree- lined Brackenridge Park course it's worst licking since Harold McSpaden toured the layout in 63 to set the record. Doering had eight birdies, five on the back nine, but missed a chance to tie McSpaden's record because of a bolgey five on the seventh hole. Twenty seven golfers turned in sub par scores. The defending champion, Sammy Byrd of Detroit's Plum Hollow course, was one under par with a 70, but that wasn't good' enough to give him much chance to repeat for the title.

Delton Houston Little Duchy of Luxembourg Exemplifies Brotherhood of Man, Mackenzie Discovers By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP World Traveler Luxembourg, Feb. 9 — Here in the medieval setting of this little grand duchy we find one of the finest — perhaps the finest —exemplifications of the brotherhood of man which our war-torn world boasts. The some 300,000 folk living in Luxembourg's tight 1,000 square miles are just one big family, in which its all for one and one for all. It's difficult for the stranacr to understand such a Utopian situation. You really have to visit this story-book principality to get the feel of it, and even at that I don't believe I should have got the full significance of the situation but for a remark dropped by Prime Minister Dupong while Mrs Mack «nd I were chatting with him in his private office. The prime minister said that all Luxeinbergers are related by blood. Well, of course, I don't suppose he meant that to be taken literally, but it's probably true that there aren't many people in his tiny state who aren't related if you trace their life ace back a bit. So there you have your Luxembourg family Probably like most families they have differences among themselves. But let an outsider pick a row with a Luxcm- burger and you'll find the rest of the family coming in to the rescue. And impartial observers who know the duchy well will tell you that if misfortune befalls one member of the family the others help him out. You need only one illustration to show the spirit of brotherhood here. Not only is there absolute Irecdom of worship but the state contributes to the maintenance of all religions represented in the country. H happens .that Luxembourg is preponderantly Catholic, but that doesn't enter into the calculations, bvery taxpayer in the grand- duchy, Catholic, Protestant, Jewish or otherwise, contributes to the freedom of worship of his fellows. One's first impulse on silting clown to write about this ancient stale in the Ardennes highland is to try to turn some poetic sen- ences. There's utter fascination in the fairyale capital which hundreds of years ago was built as a military stronghold atop the tosver- ing rock that rises sheer from the gorge cut about it by the river Al- /.ette. , Still, it strikes me that there's nothing more beautiful than this examplilieation of the brolhorhod of man. I looks like democracy in its best sense. The results of this are clearly evident. One finds it easy to accept the stalcment by a well-informed foreign observer that there has been no illiteracy since 1847. There never has been an unbalanced budget. There is no unemployment, and wages are 30 per cent higher than in neighboring Belgium, which is showing, marked signs of economic recovery. , Luxembourg is seventh in world production of steel and pays the highest steel wages i n E'urope. I'lierc is no black market, for none could live in a country where brotherhood is practiced. Luxembourg is a member of the United Nations Organixation, and is mighty proud ot it. And when you come to think it over, the UNO could do worse than take a page out of the grand duchy's book "of brotherly love. If we had more Luxembourgs, we should have greater peace. Mrs. Mack and I visited the Ha mm cemetery, just outside the capital, where General George S iPatton and 1,000 of our American boys who fell in the bitter fighting of the Ardennes arc buried. It is a moving sight —that great ticld of white crosses — and it is a lovely thought that they should be here among the folk who believe in brotherhood and the peace for which our soldiers died. •87 Enoh S.

The Ha/.orbacks' head grid coach told a joint luncheon-meeting of the Greater Littlu Rock Chamber of Commerce and the local Razorback Club that with such a stadium the university could schedule six games in Arkansas —three in Fayeiteyille," he asserted, and I would like to see a stadium built in Little Rock sealing 25,000."

Jap Admits Beating Yank With Hose Yokohama, Feb. « — (/P)— Capt. Isoa Fukuhara admitled at his war crimes trial today he struck an American prisoner across the face with a lubber belt for smoking at "an improper time." The prisoner, Pvt. Holland O. Moye, McCrae, Ga., was blind in one eye when liberated from the Omuta prison camp, Kyushu island, formerly commanded, by Fukuhara. Fukuhara, charged with responsibility for the death of one prisoner and brutalilies against others, denied having Winfred A.' Mitchurn, Houston, Tex., bound to a doorknob and then sending electricity through his body "Such actions are inhuman," declared the defendant, "and I would have imposed the sternest punishment if 1 had known." Fukuhara admitled beating Cpl. Walter R J.ohnson of McPherson, Kas., who later died in a cell. He said Johnson and a score of other prisoners designated as persons who should be closely watched were marked wilh a black cross on the'r left breast. Fukuhara said Johnson brought into his office April 11, 1945, accused of talking to Koreans 1 in a coal mine, and: "The way he sat was bad. He kept his head down and would not speak. I used my hands and feet as is customary in the Japanese army. His offense violated the thought control provision of the total mobilization law and he was liable for court martial, but the policy of the camp was to keep prisoners available for work." He added that he gave Johnson 15 days of "heavy confinement." Two days later, Johnson was, taken to the camp office and "confessed" he had talked over war news with Ihe Koreans .On the eighth day Johnson tried to escape, re-enter the cell and grabbed hold of a post," said Fukuhara. "We had Io push him in." "When did you next see him?" asked Defense Attorney Lt. Kichard H. Wolfrom, Shippcnsburg, Pa. "Next f saw his dead body." The prosecution charges thai Johnson died in a guardhouse of healings and neglect. In Tokyo, the Allied headquarters legal section announced war crimes charges against three former prison camp officials at Omine, near Kyolo, and requested that a U. S. militaty commission hero try Ihc Irio ioinlly. The defendants are Nubuo Kanayama, Lt, Tsuyoshi Sakai, and 2nd Lt. Kiyoichi Mori. Sakai and Mori were successive commanders of Ihe camp from August 10, 1943 to February, 1945. The three are charged with beating 24 American prisoners including: Pfc. Quenin A. Lawrence, Russellville, Ark.; Pvt. Paul A. Doybyns, Vernon, Mo.; S-Sgt Joseph P. Zapairi, 5249 Wilson Ave., Si. Louis; Cpl. Frank G. Knapp, 2715 Delaware St., St. Joseph, Mo., and Pvt. Gale M.

Washburn Who's Going to Build L. R. Stadium? Little Rock Is If Little Hock thinks the rest of Arkansas is going to chip in to help build a 25,000-scnt stadium in the capital city then Uttle Rock is due to feel snake-bitten when all the provinces have been heard from. John Barnhill, new Razorback coach, originated the idea of a big Little ROCK stadium so the university could stage some of its Southwestern Humes before the largest potential crowd in the state. But the idea of getting the rest ol Arkansas to help finance its construction seems to be purely a Little Rock notion. Orvillc Henry, young and enterprising sports editor of the Arkansas Gazette, wrote this morning: "It appears to us that the Chamber of Commerce and friends of the University football team hero and over the state should consider the matter and investigate the possibilities. A sizeable stadium here would mean a great deal to the Kazorbacks, Little Rock, and Arkansas, much more than three loot- ball games each fall." But the i foregoing is just so much paint on the Little Rock community fence. Every city wants more paying customers within its gates and every city has a financial prob 1cm in constructing the permanent buildings which help to draw paying customers. Hope for instance, needs a Winter sports building or field house. It would be located downtown in Hope, but many of the sport participants and many of the paying guests would be from Nevada, LaFayotlc and Howard counties. What kind of a razzberry would Hope get shoud we ask our neighbors to help finance the cost of that field house? I'm holding my cars. * -K -K By JAMES THRASHER Dr. Inglis' Impractical Cure It is debatable whether one should cheer or chide Dr. David Inglis for his proposal that a typical American city be subjected to atomic bombing in order to snap the public out of its lethargic thinking. | The proposal, of course, is quite insane. (Dr. Inglis' substitute suggestion of building a complete slccl- and-conerclc city in the desert for the experiment isn't much more sensible.) Scientists should take . i;u'ns these days to be practical. Their discoveries arc hooking up increasingly with world government, and their help will be needed increasingly in running that government. They can't court the risk of being branded once more as visionaries. and exiled by popular demand to their cloistered laboratories. Yet it is not difficult to sympathize wilh Dr. Inglis' thinking. He worked on the Manhattan Project for'lhreo years. '•"Now',' ba 4 ck "af'hisf old place on the physics faculty at Johns Hopkins, he sees people going about their business apparently unconcerned with the catastrophe miracle which he helped to create. lie sees some indulging in the childish practice of making believe that a thing doesn't exist by refusing to think about it. He sees others recoiling from the horror of the bomb by telling themselves that it is so horrible no one will dare use it again. They assure themselves that something surely will be done to prevent it. Or at least they tell themselves that maybe it isn't really so horrible after all. Possibly Dr. Inglis has been impressed most of all by the boredom that the subject has induced. The repercussion of excitement, speculation and fear that the bomb produced died rather quickly. The murmur of comment that remained soon turned into a mass of platitudes. People wrote and said the same tilings again and again. In their confusion and lack of knowledge, there was nothing else they could say. In time, they grew weary of thoughts that became clinches almost as soon as they were uttered. They became profoundly weary of reading pieces like this one. The result was the lethargy of which Dr. Inglis complains and which he would cure by violent wholly impractical shock treatment. There is no answer in sight at the moment. And so the world must sit uneasily, i'aced less by the threat of being blown to bits by the atomic bomb than by the subtle but even more deadly possibility of being bored to death by it.

Masaharu Homma, conqueror of Balaan and Corregidor, was convicted by a U. S. military commission today of permitting his troops to commit atrocities and was scnlcnccd to be "shot to death with musketry." The verdict held Homma dirccl- ly responsible for 80,757 killings and tortures including those on the Bataan death march and in the bombing of Manila after it was declared an open cily, Dec. 26. 1841.

Washington, Feb. 11 —(/I 1 )— Winston Churchill today postponed his return to sunny Florida until Io morrow and sellled clown in the snowclad British embassy to rest and talk with the Earl of Halifax, his old friend and retiring British ambassador to the United States. The embassy said Ihe former prime minister had no definite plans for the day and no confer cncos scheduled. The While House said that Prcsi dent Truman's conference wilh Churchill last night dealt almost wholly with a discussion of plans for Churchill's speech at Fulton, Mo., March 5. Press Secretary Charles G, Ross told reporters the two "did not discuss any political mailers" and lhal the pending agreement for a loan to Britain was nol mentioned. Ross said that Mr. Truman will spend the night of March 5 at Mex ico. Mo., at the home of A. P. Green, head of a firebrick company. Churchill also will be a guest at the Green mansion. The British leader will fly back to Washington from Missouri, while Presidcnl Truman will fly Io Columbus, Ohio, for a noon speech March 6 at a special meet ing of the federal council of Churches of Christ in America. The arrangements contemplate Churchill, Mrs. Churchill and their daughter, Mrs. Saray Oliver, fly ing to Washington from Florida March 4 to spend the night with the president and Mrs. Truman at the White House. Early Ihe next day, Truman and Churchill will fly to Fulton where Churchill will speak on foreign affairs at Westminster college. Afterward, the two will drive to Mexico for the night. Mrs. Churchill and her daughter will spend the nights of March 4 andv5 at? the Whitt? T'ouse andOnovoi with Mr. Churchill to the British embassy March 6. Washington still wondered whether the sudden flight was prompted by Protocol, Britain's New Labor Government or just plain pleasure. The wartime leader remained mum. He told the Earl of Halifax, British Ambassador, he did not want to talk Io Iho press upon his arrival. And he sped quickly past newsmen waiting in the snow outside the White House gale after his talk with the president last night. The storm .meanwhile raised the likelihood thai acquaintances in Congress would seek Churchill's views, publicly or privately, on Anglo-American affairs. Right at the lop of these would be the projected $3,750,000,000 loan to Britain. There has been some speculation that it was this question that brought Churchill here at a time when congressional approval of Ihc grant remained far from certain. Bul in oilier quarters — admittedly just as speculative — the opinion was advanced that Mr. Truman himself had sought a face to face meeting wilh one of the few who could furnish all the intimate details of what went on at the private wartime conferences between President Roosevelt, Churchill and Generalissimo Stalin. This theory developed from the year old pact of silence on the Yalta agreement promising Anglo- American support for Russia's claim to permanent possession of the Kurilos and the southern half of Sakhalin, a big island north of Japan. British officials, however, clung to Ihe Protocol theory. They said Churchill came here to discuss Ihe March 5 speech at Westminster College, Fulton, Mo., where he will be introduced by the president They argued that it would be only diplomatic courtesy for Churchill to acquaint Mr. Truman with what he is going to say in advance. He was acquitted of a charge in a second indictment that he refused to grant quarters to American troops in Manila Bay when Gen. Jonathan M. Wainwright offered to suri'cnder May G, 1942. The courtroom was jammed with spectators when Homma, dressed' in a white business suit and brown necktie, was led before the commission. The crowd had been warned previously that the verdict must be received in silence. Commission President Maj. Leo B. Donovan announced that the verdict had been reached in a secret written ballot with two-thirds or more of the members concurring. Homma, who speaks English fluently, listened intently as Donovan read the verdict. Although he had wept three times when de- lense witnesses described him as kind-hearted a.nd a peace-maker he showed no emotion as he heard the death sentence pronounced. Homma glanced about the court room and then thanked the commission for the "courteous ways of the people who conducted the trial." He was escorted immediately back to prison. The conviction and sentence, as in the case of Lt. Gen. Tomoyuki Yamashita, who previously was sentenced to death by hanging for war crimes in the Philippines, are subject to review by Lt. Gen. W.D. Slyer, commander of Western Pacific Forces. If Styer concurs in Ihc death penalty ho must pass the case on to Gen. Douglas MacArthur, supreme Allied commander, for final approval. MacArthur gave his final approval last week to the sentence for Yamashita who succeeded Homma as Japanese commander in Ihe .PliJligpines an,d -convicled :.of responsibility for more than 60,'3C5 atrocity deaths. Homma, like Yamashita, also appealed to the United Stales Supreme Court challenging the authority of Ihe commission to try him. The high court denied Yamashita's appeal. Homma's still is pending. Maj. A. C. Tisdellc, who was on Bataan, was among the courtroom spectators when the sentence was announced. "There are 16,000 unseen Americans and 49,000 Filipinos also in the courtroom listening in Ihe ver- dicl — iho ghosts of Bataan and Corregidor," he commented. Asked what he and the unseen witnesses thought of the verdict Tisdelle replied: "We are smiling," Homma was moved immediately co Luzon prisoner of war camp number one, where he joined his successor as supreme commander of the Philipincs during the palmy days of Japanese conquest, Lt. Gen. Tomoyuki Yamashita, and 10 • other convicted war criminals, i While hearing his sentence, Homma stod in almost the exact spot in the ballrom of the formei home of the United Stales commissioner to the Philippines where bcmedalled and arrogant after the Japanese conquest of the islands, he had received the homage of Ihe puppet Filipino commission and collaborators in a widely-publiei/cd reception. Within the range of his vision, as he stood before the five-man commission, across Manila Bay was Ihc fortress rock of Corregidor and the mist-shrouded hills of Bataan, from which he had herded Gen. Jonathan M. Wainwright, Mil}. Gen. Edward P. King and their forces along the sun-scorched roads in the infamous death march. The conviction was no surprise as Homma had expected to be shol.

Kurile Islands the Price That Brought Russian Entry Into War Against Japanese By RALPH HEINZEN Washington, Feb. 11 —(UiP) — Russian possession of the Kurile islands— which stretch northeastward from Japan toward the Aleu- lians — was revealed loday Io have been part of the price of Russian entry into the war against Japan. This WHS disclosed wilh publication of the text of a secret agreement made at Yalta a year ago today by President Roosevelt. Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Generalissimo Josef Stalin. It also gave the Russians the southern part of Sakhalin island (they already had the northern half) and other benefits. Existence of Ihc agreement was disclosed some time ago. Nol until today, however, was the text of the agreement announced. The Rus- l United Stales of America and Great Britain — have agreed that in two or three months after the war in Europe has terminated, the Soviet Union shall enter into the war against Japan on the side of the Allies on condition thai:" Then followed a listing of the conditions, including that "Ihe Ku- rile islands shall be handed over to the Soviet Union." The agreement also provided for recognition of the People's Republic in outer Mongolia, internationalization of the Port of Dairon and Ihe rccslablishment of a Russian naval base at Port Arthur, and joint Sino-Soviet operation of the Chinese-Eastern and South Man- churjan railroads. In the agreement, Stalin pledged that China siuns are now fully established* in Ihe Kuriles.

II — (UP) — The G. I. managing editor and a columnist of Ihe Pacific edition of the army newspaper Stars and Stripes were granted a slay of orders to day, pending an investigation of charges thai their scheduled transfer was an attempt to "muzzle" the paper. Maj. Gen. R. J. Hall, Gen. Douglas MacArlhur's chief of staff granted the slay for Managing Editor Sgl. Ken Pellus, Chicago, and Cpl. Bernard Rubin, Walerbury, Conn. Earlier, Pettus and Rubin said they had been informed Ihey were being transferred Io Okinawa because of a "negative report on a loyally check." Other staff members, however, charged thai Ihe removal of the two man "appeared to be a culmination ol a longer scries of attempts to mu7.7.lc the service publication. They said the transfer constituted an "exile to the salt mines." The newspaper's Monday morning edition carried a three-column head and lead page-one story telling how members of the editorial staff had appealed Io MacArthur to intervene and prevent their transfer. " "We believe the transfer is linked with a statement signed by members of this staff on Jan. 9, wherein we charged lhal open and implied pressure was put on us 'to delete, distort and play down news Io serve personal and professional interests of the army hierarchy'," staff members said. The letter signed by 11 of the 15 editorial staff members, said that Pettus and Rubin, although not alone in signing the Jan. 9 censorship protest, "appear to be the goats in this matter." Pettus and Rubin said that Col. John F. Davis, Allied headquar tors information and education of ficer, "told them they were being removed from the paper "because of the negative loyalty check report. "Questioning my loyalty is a grave charge," Pettus said, "and is one whicn I intend to fight both in and out of the army." Rubin, author of the paper's "Japan Today" column, said, "When I was in the bailie of Luzon, my loyalty was not questioned." Pellus has been overseas 19 months, Rubin 14 months. Rubin has two battle slars as a machine gunner on Luzon. tiu-'s of the "loyalty check." He said the men were being removed from the paper because they had failed to measure up to qualifications established by War Department regulations. He said their transfer had nothing to do with the paper's recent charges of alleged censorship. Ft. Smith Gets $1,000,000 Can Factory Chicago, Feb. 11 — f/pj— Fort omith. Ark., will be the silo of a new $1,000,000 factory of the American. Can Company designed to supply canning companies in Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. Gordon H. Kcllog, American Can vice president, said the first unit to be installed on a 20-acre tract the company has acquired at Fort Smith would be one-story building including two lines capable of turning out 700 cans a minute. The building will be designed so it could be enlarged as additional equipment becomes available. Kellogg pointed out that the annual spinach pack in the Arkansas river valley had increased from 500,000 cases in 1938 to nearly 5,000,000 cases last year, and that during the same period Ihe green bean pack had increased Houses Under $6,000 to Be Built First Washington, Feb. 11 —I/I')—Housing Administrator Wilson W. Wyatl said loday most of the building materials set aside for houses will be channeled into homes costing $6,000 and under. Wyall, heading for a powwow with congressional leaders on the big homes-for-vclcrans program, told a news conference he had "every indication of cooperation from bi-Parlisan groups in both Houses of Congress." The favorable signs, he said, indicate House and Senate support even for the controversial plan for $600,000,000 in subsidies of "Premium payments" to producers of building supplies. The housing chief said he expected aircrall factories and other unused war plants to be used "very extensively" in mass production of pre-fabrieatcd homes, with the government guaranteeing a market for the makers. The housing priority regulation will be changed shortly, Wyatt said, so lhal the 50 per cent of scarce building materials now set aside for homes under $10,000 will go mostly into dwellings to sell for less than $6,000 or renl for less than $50. This followed announcement that the Civilian Production Administration will "drastically curtail" commercial and industrial building and will limit the use of binding ma- lerials to government - approved nrojccls. Residential building outside the veterans' program also be pared down, said CPA Administrator John D. Small. He warned: "Anyone who now starts construe- lion runs Ihe risk of not being per- milled Io finish Ihe job unless he is able Io prove that the project cannot be deferred and that it is sufficiently essential to be approved under. the (forthcoming) regulations." There were signs that compromise housing legislation might win speedy approval.

High Court Washes Hands of Homma Washington, Feb. 11 — (#>)— The Supreme court refused today to intervene in Manila proceedings in which Japanese Lt. General Masa haru Homma was convicted as a war criminal and sentenced to be shot. Homma sent petitions by air mail from Manila asking the high court to take him out of the hands of the military. He also asked review of the refusal by the Philip pines supreme court to grant him a writ of habeas corpus. Homma's petitions were similar to those sent earlier by the con victed Japanese General Tomoyuki Yamashita. The court last Monday rejected all of Yamashita's contentions and General Douglas MacAr thur has ordered he be hanged. The court based its rejection of Homma's petition on the decision in the Yamashita case. Justices Murphy and Rutledge dissented Io today's decision, as they did in last weeks' 62 decision in the Yamashita action.

By HAU BOYLE Rangoon, Feb. 11 — (#>»—- Air travel is still the only dependable way of moving around quickly in Ihe Orient. Boat schedules are slow and sluggish. Flying to Europe on Royal Air Force planes, however, isn't like travelling in luxury passenger models in Ihe United Stales. Il is the difference between riding in a freight car and a Pullman car. The planes are old battleworn, lease-lend Dakolas used for cargo as well as passenger haul. They have aluminum or canvas "bucket" seats and after six jolting hours aloft, you can hear your bones creak as you climb out at each halt. We hear beautiful legends of plushlined planes that operate from Karachi, India, to London. Bul we feel thai these reports are just hay before the donkey Io keep il plodding on . Tnere are still more- military than civilian passengers, but the man who pays his own fare is beginning Io gel belter treatment instead of being regarded as something of a nuisance, \yhich was often his fate in wartime. The British are making a real effort to keep up the prestige of their airlines ;ind they give fuve- paying passengers more considera- I lion than formerly when a traffic jam develops. ' Yel at each relay point you have to go before a new priorities board and squabble hard to keep from being lost in the shuffle If you don't argue and put vip a good case for yourself you may be stuck at any point for a week. There are slill more people who want to ride by plane than there are planes in service to them. carry Americans are popular in Siam. The overflow of Siamese goodwill for Americans results from Ihe lenient position the United States government took toward Siam's puppet subserviecncy to Japan during the war. The British were tougher, and got something for being tougher. If they are worried because they aren't as well liked now by the Siamese they don't show it.
