March 5, INI Relief Rushed To Victims Of Quake, Waves 31 Japanese Dead, 170 Injured On Stricken Islands Tokyo - () - American occupation forces and the Japanese government today rushed relief supplies tp victims of an earthquake and tidal waves in snowswept Northern Japan. Plants, trains and bpats carried blankets, medicine and food to itricken areas of sparsely. settled Eastern Hokkaido Island and the more populous sections of Northeastern Honshu Island. Thousands of homeless suffered from bitter cold and driving snowstorms which followed Tuesday's earthquake. The official U. S. Army estimate stood at 31 Japanese dead and 170 injured.

That's next Tuesday's election in New Hampshire. Jack Bell, Associated Press political writer, reported from Concord he found evidence indicating the voters are undecided on whom to choose, in either the Republican or Democratic column. Democrats: Scott Lucas 'of Illinois, formed Senate majority leader, opened President Truman's New Hampshire campaign, by saying the president is "invaluable to us in this hour of peril" and must be persuaded to run again. ^·Jph'n L. Sullivan, former secretary of Hie .Navy, urged at Durham, N. H., that Truman be given "a vote of confidence" or it "will be the best news the Kremlin has received in a long while." Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee launched his windup campaign in New Hampshire with handshaking visits to Newmarket, Dover and Portsmouth. Oregon Democrats announced that "alter conversations with Washington" they had decided not to file Truman as a candidate in the state's May 16 primary They indicated the name of Gov Adlai Stevenson of Illinois would be filed instead.

Levcrett Saltonstall ol Massachusetts c a r ri e d Gen Dwight D. Eisenhower's New Hampshire campaign to Clarc- mont. He said the general is "the one Republican who appeals particularly to the independent voters of our country, and we have to have their votes to win." Harry Darby, national commit- for Kansas, said in From the People To the Editor: I have been greatly disturbed during the past month by the number of abbreviated reports in your columns relative to the hearings before the Subcommittee on Procurement of the House of Representatives Armed Services Committee. Many of these reports have, intentionally or. not, indicated gross waste and inefficiency in the Army Procurement Program. You have reported many examples of different prices paid People Of Indochina Fear Only Intervention By One Of The Great Powers Can Bring To An End The Bloody, Endlessfight There BT JAMES MARLOW Washington - (/P) - Tho struggle against Communism makes strange bedfellows for the United Stales. j Indochina is a good example. \ · Even with American help the j French in Indochina haven't been able to whip the Communist Viet! minh troops.

In an effort to show that there is much more than meets the eye in your columns behind these, or some price differences, I will deal briefly with one item only. On exhibition at the hearings in Washington were two blankets bought by the Army, tagged with the unit price, as requested by the Subcommittee. One cost $4.65; the 'other cost $21.75. I had to find out for myself the following facts regarding these two blankets. The $4.fi5 item is a brown, standard-sized, cotton-wool mixture, made by the Federal Prison Industry intended for use by the General Services Administration. The $21.75 item is white, all wool, designed to give most warmth per ounce of weight and to withstand sterilization. It is of extra large size, and intended for use by the Medical Services to cover both patient and medical appliances in a hospital bed. Some 8,000 of these white blankets were bought at $21.72 in January, 1951, when the wool market was high; while some 23.000 of the same blankets were bought at an average price of S10.46 in December, 1951, when the wool market was low. One might spare a little energy from worrying about the different prices the Army paid for identical blankets bought in the open market, and devote it to worrying about who or what was responsible for the high wool market of the winter of 1950-51. I am not contending that nil Is well with Army procurement; but 1 am convinced .that the Army is making great strides towards, and getting some positive results in decreasing waste and increasing efficiency ; and I should have liked to have seen a little more fair nlay j in the reporting of this particular-investigation. Jn 1li--r~ .·-.·:. when our hopes for, and faith in our higher officials and irstilu-, tions Ijave been, subjected^to some strain.'it is not too difficult to imagine that "bad press" for the Army during this investigation has i been played up for its sensation j value, and that matters to the Army's credit have been played, down or suppressed. | If that is your case, Sir, I here- [ by register my protest. If that is' not your case, and the good side has not been presented simply because of lack of information. I shall be glad to supply you with · material, w e l l authenticated, : which was made available to the Subcommittee during its enquiry, showing sohie of the positive accomplishments in bettering Army and Combined Armed Services procurement, and some details of the many projects the Army is, and has been pursuing for many, many months towards increasing; efficiency which I feel sure would provide a welcome change of diet for many of your readers.

And the 'Chinese Communists have poured vast supplies southward to 'the Vietmlnh. This has been a steady drain on the United States and Chinn,. both of which, could have used their .military supplies elsewhere. It's bcrn a steady drain on the French, loo..

What the French want In Indochina I* whal they've always wanted: Undisturbed' possession. It's been tholr colony a long time, and they want to keep It that. Tho Ricotd If Shabby Their record In Indochina'has been shabby. They've? treated it as a colony, exploiting It nnd its people. The democracy they practiced at home wns something they didn't export to Indochina. They seemed, and still seem, un- nblc to get it thruUBh their heads, that life n,ie of western colonialism In Asin is finished. At the wl o( World War II they were washed up and done In Indochina and would have remained .done it the British hadn't bailed i them out by holding the line for them until France could get troopi back in.
