Wilson, personnel offici moves a.model ambulance up the Red Cross fund-contribution hill on the hospital's unique scorcboa.n All employes of the hospital have been divided into two teams. Red and White, and are competing agains each other in the Red Cross campaign. The Red team quota is $224, while the White team must reac ·t-least $222. (PUska TMESFO.TO). . ' · Singapore Hub Of Two-Way Smuggling, With War Material Being Shipped Out To Communist Lands 5ingapore-(/P)-The U. N. block-* . ade of Red China and boom con ditions in Singapore have trans formed this great trading cente into a teeming hub of two-waj . imuggllng. , Bigtime operators, who long hav used loopholes in'this great por to smuggle in opium for rich Chinese addicts, now use the sairn loopholes to send out strategic wa materials to Communist countries. With Red China as their ulti mate'destination, quantities of tin _ rubber,, tfrcs, auto parts, tinplatc "carbon black and other war necessities are flowing out o£ the colony despite the official ban. The British authorities admi' "cargoes-are getting past the customs and port control, but pleat senior custms officials cannot' be everywhere at once and have -to take the word of officers in passing outbound cargoes. Said a customs . spokesman "Contraband, opium, gold, liquor and tobacco coming in is smal compared to the volume of prohibited 1 goods going out." "Strategic materials are the money-making exports of smugglers. .He named Red China and Indochina, as the. main "importing countries. 1 When Britain placed a . b a n on strategic" war material exports to Communist China, illicit exporters . here immediately looked- for alternative channels to get supplies needed by thes Communists out of the colony. . One method was" to obtain export declaration for scrap material-nnd then ship out brand- new material heavily packed. With official papers, these cargoes got past \rUsting customs men for months. The ruse came to an end only when a large cargo of brand new tinplate wrapped in sacking burst open aboard a Hong Kong-bound vessel. The export declaration had ·tipulated it was tin cuttings. There followed a period ol apparent calm. Three months later 20 customs officers, acting on information, boarded the steamship, JBandviken, 1 bound- for Red China. They went to vyork with screwdrivers, and out of bedsteads with hollow sides, canvas cots with hollow supports and gla'zed tablctops with false undersides, poured thousands of pieces of auto parts and tools.. They included spark plugs, bearings, gaskets, contact- breakers, spanners, files, aerial and ordinary film and printing paper. - But Singapore's 66-mile vulnerable coastline and corruption among some customs men are 1 two factors contributing tn the track; which flourishes despite periodic crackdowns.

Doyle Stockburger of Winslow George Pulls No Punches In Criticism Of President; Truman Strength Question Mark By JAMES MAftLOW Washington-^-In an angry mdmenl an extremely influential Democrat, Senator George of ·nd W. G. Shipley of Fayctteville .went to McAlistcr, Okla., Wednesday on business. Ceorgia, delivered one of the most caustic criticisms ever uttered in the Senate against President Truman on the very day when returns from the New Hampshire election showed the president badly beaten. Truman, urging the Senate to approve his plan for reorganizing the Internal Revenue Bureau, had suggested that the senators opposing it were moved more by a desire for political patronage than a desire to eliminate corruption from .the government. George! attacking the president, said: "He is the poorest advocate of a cause--good, bad, or indifferent--that the world has ever produced." This crytic statement was made it a' time when many people were ivondering about the reasons for Truman's defeat in Kew Hampshire and whether the vote there ruly reflected the feelings ' of Democrats everywhere toward the president, Question Into Focus By accusing the president of being a poor advocate, George at cast brought into focus a question which undoubtedly arose in many minds after hearing the New lampshirc returns: Just how much of a job has Truman done n winning the people over to him nd the causes be favored? No one can accuse him of never laving done a selling job. In the 948 presidential campaign! when iractirally no one gave him a nance, he went around the coun- ry, talking face-to-face with the icople. And he won. It was an mazing job. It was a reminder of the equally mazing and consistent success of Franh' D. Roosevelt in talking to the people apaln and again, particularly in his fireside talks, and explaining the why's of' what he was doing and wanted to do. He .went to the people for support. .Truman has led the country into some of the most far-reaching ventures in American history-such as the Korean War, the Atlantic pact, foreign alliances, and arms and economic help for allies --but there has been increasing grumbling over the inconclusiveness of the Korean war, over the Truman administration" apparent ly abandoned the fight. And th administration's advocacy of com puisory healt:. insurance c a hardly be satd to have been stren uous, 'particularly in view of a] the opposition it had. Corruption in government ha been and probably will remain om of the biggest issues in the prosi dential campaign, with Truman 1 ; opponents expected to capitalizi on it as much as they can. No even his closest friends can claim he jumped.into this problem witl both feet in a hurry, for a broad investigation has not even begun although Truman might be able t explain convincingly what delayed it. His defeat by Senator Kcfauver in New Hampshire may spur th president into more direct contact with the people--and it certainly will i f ' h e decides to run again--for in New Hampshire Ke fau'vcr who went around shaking hands got the votes while the president who stayed away came in second-best. high taxes, and the fact thai they're being used to provide so much economic help for other countries. Has Nation Been Sold? Because there is the grumbling, which may have taken active form in the New Hampshire elections, the question about Truman's ad- vpcacy, sticks out sharply! Just how much of a job has Truman done in trying to sell the people on Korea, taxes, and foreign aid. Three of the most controversial programs offered Congress by Truman were civil rights, repeal of the Taft-IIartley labor law, and compulsory health insurance.

Musicians are probably most contented when they .are being paid the most, but they usually play., the best when they have a large. and sympathetic "audience. Last night they had the stimulus to do their finest, and few who heard-the concert would deny that it was orchestral playing ; at its best. ' . . The' first number on the program was the "Haffner" Symphony by Mozart. This 'Is not a work of broad-sweeping soul- stirring melodies, nor is It a work of exotic tonal blendings. Yet, the charm and grace of the delicate thinly-scored Symphony was apparent, from the opening few measures. Johnson'has a tendency at times to call forth more in the way of tone than seems necessary or desirable in works of this nature. Mozart did riot write parts for "heavy brass" in all of his symphonies, but he did in this particular one, and Johnson came close at times'to miring down the composition in a heavy mass of sound that is not congruous with :hc style of Mozart. Music of this period was never intended to be played by a large symphony orchestra, and il must be admitted -hat the conductor's mistakes were negligible--the performance was both brilliant and precise. Who among us would attempt an "inprovcment? "The White Peacock" by -the American composer, Charles Grlf- cs, was admiringly handled. The work is f u l l of impressionistic devices, and is undoubtedly the equal of any of the French composers with whom the impres- ionislic school was supposed to have originated. Perhaps the most novel wcrk o'n vholc program was the "Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes if von Weber" by Paul Hindemith. This composition ir, four movements sounds little like the ither works of Hindesmith, Is trangely lacking in painful dis- onancc, and is more reminiscent if the style of writing' around the urn of the century than of 1" ears ago. The 'audience, most of vhom were hearing the work for he first 'time, sat in studied si- cncc hardly knowing what to cx- ieet next. Each movement was n elaboration on a theme by the 9th century composer Carl von Veber. Perhaps the most Inter- sting of all was the second lovcmont which took a theme sed by .von Weber in some inci- ental music to Schiller's play Tprandot." The kitchenette (per- ussion department) received a 'orkout as the drum players ought to play on the triangle, ood block, metal brush, Chinese ong, etc., in rapid succession The program closed with the eautifui but sometimes laborious Harold en Italic" by Berlioz. )nc critic remarked, "Berlioz had othing to say, but said it elo- uently." Doubtless this is an ovcr- .atemont. Many who heard the ·ork last' night were of the opin- n that Berlioz had plenty to ay, but took too long to say it. rik Kahlson, viola soloist in the erformancc, was superb as was e orchestra. The symphony orchestra is one f the miracles of modern society --its value as an entertainment edium was emphatically demon- rated last night.
