COURIER NEWS PAGE PIVB Br SEL1G HARRISON MADURA, India (AP) — India's Communist high command told the first party con gress in five years yesterday that it must kesp trying to win power peacefully at the polls, rather than through the terrorist tactics used until two years ago.

Ghosh arrived In Bombay less than three weeks ago after a six-month visit to the Soviet capital for medical treatment. The peaceful action program continues a policy adopted in October, 1951.

T. Ranadive .had advocated— as unsuited to India's Gandhian tradition of non-violence. The party committee called for a "brond based united front able to establish a government of democratic unity." Ghosh in Saddle . Ghosh appeared firmly In the saddle. He assumed the top party post two years ago as a shaky compromise choice between the opposing factions, one favoring violence and the other the parliamentary approach to power. Red sources here indicated strong backing from Moscow had made Ghosh the closest thing to an accepted boss the quarreling Indian Com- munists have ever had. The sources added that since Ghosh's return from Moscow, the Red leadership seems clearly to view Moscow, rather than Peiplng, as the focus of control and support for Indian communism. Mao Not Mentioned Resolutions adopted by the congress did not mention Chinese Communist bleader Mao Tze-tung but stressed instead that India's Reds would "further strengthen the bonds of friendship and brother- hoort between the peoples of India and the Soviet Onion." Steering committee members denied earlier reports that a delegate named Koyint had arrived from Communist China to attend the Congress. Western Allies Issue Sham Protest to Reds BERLIN (/Pi— The three Western Allies in a sharp protest to the Russians today demanded punishment of Soviet border guards for (he fatal shooting of a 16-year-old West Berlin youth and the wounding of his mother Saturday night. The American, British and French commandants also demanded damages be paid the family of the slain youth. Identical notes from the three Allied chiefs were handed the Soviet Protocol Office this morning. The notes asked a thorough investigation by the Russians and punish. ment of guity parties. • Allied authorities still had only a scanty account of the incident. The youth, Joachim Wozniak, was hit in the chest when Russian border guards opened fire at a car in which he approached the West Berlin border on a Soviet zone highway. His mother, Isa, 40, was injured, and his father, driving the car, escaped unhurt. The East German police seized the vehicle after the shooting but released it 30 minutes later. West Berlin authorities still are trying to find out the cause of the shooting. Radford Assures Chiang Forces Of Continued Aid TAIPEH, Formosa IIP)— Adm. Arthur Radford, chairman of the U. S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, today assured Nationalist China that American aid "will be continued as presently planned." Radford and Asst. U. S. Secretary of State Walter Robertson wound up conferences with top Nationalist leaders and left for Manila to attend the inauguration Wednesday of President-elect Ramon Magsaysay. Government sources said the statements by Radford and Robertson tended to allay fears that American aid to Nationalist China would be cut drastically.

ARMY 'THAT EHMINE SUIT' — Film Actress Terry Moore, wearing "tha ermine swim suit," is surrounded by OI's of the 45th Division in Korea who seem to be more interested in the photographer than Miss Moore. The suit has been packed away and she'll continue her Korean tour, entertaining soldiers in other costumes. (AP Wlrephoto via radio from Tokyo) (Continued .from Page 1) it did hit hard upon another phase— the growing dominance of weapons and new techniques in strategy. Thus Eisenhower commented: 1. "Our growing national airpow- er possesses greater mobility and greater striking force than ever before." 2. To be on the alert for an infraction of the armistice, the United Nations members of Allied forces in Korea were agreed it might b>: impossible "to confine hostilities within the frontiers of Korea," the President said. That seemed a plain hint that these highly mobile forces of which the President spoke might carry any resumed war to Red China. One Holiday Collision Only one traffic accident was reported by the city police over the holidays. W. H. Spence and Joe Lee Lockhart were involved in an ccident Friday afternoon at the corner of Franklin and Railroad causing some damage to both vehicles.

BIG THREE (Continued from Page I) know better than Russia what your own interests are. Another section of the Soviet note was interpreted as a possible delaying gambit. The Western powers had proposed the former Allied Control Authority building in the U. S. se'ctor of Berlin as a meeting place. The Russians said it would "appear expedient" to let the foul- high commissioners have a preliminary meeting to choose the place.

PEMEYlS ALWAYS FIRST QUALITY! -INVENTORY CLEARANCE A STORE-WIDE CLEAN-UP OF BROKEN LOTS AND WINTER MERCHANDISE AT GREATLY REDUCED PRICES! SALE STARTS TUESDAY MORNING! Planned Security Check of Senate Employes Snags Tl^ree Reasons Given for Failure Of Loyalty Probe WASHINGTON Wl — A proposed loyally-security checkup on all the approximately 1,800 employes of the Senate lias bogped down, although it was recommended by a unanimous Senate vote 10 months ago. J. Mark Trice, Senate secretary, and several senators who asked that their names not be used cited three reasons for the plan's failure: II) A lefrsl prohibition against disclosure of FBI data to persons not authorized to receive it, (2) failure of the Senate to vote the FBI special funds to help with the checkup, and (3) disinterest on the part ol some senators. Unanimous Resolution Last March 6 the Senate unnn- mously nassed a resolution,, which* does not have the force of law, directing that each of the 96 senators, all Senate committees and all Senate officials having authority to hire ask an FBI check of their employes. Trice said numerous conferences between Senate leaders, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and Justice Department officials had failed to untangle the legal snarl. The FBI is barred from turning loyalty data over to Congress, except for that on judicial appointees. Sen. McCarrari (D-Nev), who sponsored the move for a loyalty and security check on Senate em- ployes, said all his staff "have been cleared." But several other senators, who asked that their names not be used, said they had not asked a check on their employes. No figures are publicly available on how many have done so. POWs (Continued from Page 1) 00-day period for explanations. That would mean the prisoners must be freed Jan. . The Communists just as firmly contend that they are entitled to DO days of actual explanations rather than a 90-day period which end- id Dec. 3. They have used 10 days. The Reds also insist that the iri.soncrs remain in custody pending acion by the peace conference, regardless of when a conference convened. Completion of the calculations on 1000 measurements of the surface LenipcnUure of the planet Mars show that the mean range there is between minus 50 and plus *?0 degrees Fahrenheit.

French Air Attacks Hit Indochina Reds SAIGON, Indochina Ifi — French fighters and bombers plastered the Communist-led Invaders of Laos today and French ground defenders of the little Indochinese kingdom hastily strengthened key bases. The Vletminh radio claimed that the "greater part" of the Laotian troops under French command had deserted and joined the Bed forces. The radio claimed also that the 100-mile Invasion had been carried out by the "Laotian National Liberation troops," but French sources in Saigon said the invaders were Vietminh regulars from coastal North Annam, possibly supported by some Laotian regional elements. The French were faced with a major supply problem. The rebel advance, cut the Mekong Elver supply line as well as road routes to the Laos government seat of Vientiane. Strategic towns in the northern pavt of the kingdom now must be supplied by air.
