Former Member Of Congress To Be Queried .Vincent Quinn Is Summoned Before Investigators "Washington - (/P) - House ta tcandal investigators today railed Â· former colleague for questioning. Former Rep. T. Vincent Quinn D-NY), who quit Congress to become district attorney of Queens County, New York City, was summoned before a Ways and Means Subcommittee. Quinn, the committee heard, was one of two attorneys who conferred with former Assistant Internal Revenue Commissioner Daniel A. Bolich in Washington shortly before Bolich stopped criminal fraud proceedings against Pattullo Modes, Inc., a New York dress firm. The case was settled on a civil basis in 1950 for about 510,000. However, it was reported last year Â·fter the House committee began its" corruption inquiry, and the government is claiming an extra $200,000 in taxes. Bolich yesterday refused to answer committee questions about how he managed to spend twice as much as his government salary brought him while he was No. 2 man in the Revenue Bureau. He also refused to explain the source of thousands of dollars in gifts Â·nd expensive favors, claiming it "was his constitutional privilege to remain silent on gvound:; that he jnight incriminate himself. "He also refused to talk about his tlose association with Henry W. (The Dutchman)) Gruncwalri, Washington mystery man with influence in high places. When Bolich f i n a l l y \vas excused. Chairman King ( D - C a l i f ) shsrply criticized him fr.r his refusal to answer questions because of possible SGlf-incriminnlion. "In my opinion, no jrovernmenl official, particularly with a por-i- , tirjp of trust, such as you have held, should fnrl it necessary 1o invoke this privilege." King said.

KKOON Semarang, Indonesia -()- Despite the tides of war . .id revolution that have swept over Indonesia, the position of ihe Chinese businessman remains firm. He is in control of this nation's billion- dollar retail trade and plays a Irrge role in the wholesale business. Through the heart of Semarang's Chinese section runs a hot, grubby ?lley called Petundjagen, Its main haracteristics are ageless, sagging Chinese homes and stores, bustling throngs of peddlers and (he smell of dried fish and tropical fruits. But it is called "Millionaire's Alley," and there is one in practically every town in Southeast Asia. Siong Kim Sie is .lust one of the merchants along Petundjagen. His family came to Semarang three generations ago from KuUien province. In his Tokio shop he sells a wide variety of small merchandise. The stock varies *rom Austrian-made lighters to American flashlights, from menthalated balm to aspirin, from a Japanese toothbrush to an article of clothing from Kong Kong. The stock is about '.he same as that of 10 years 3^0--before the Japanese invasion, the Indonesian revolution and the victory of the Communisls in Siong's homeland. Watches I o lit Its He has taken note of these developments. Indonesia has recognized the Peiping regime, so the star-spangled banner of Red China flutters over his front door. In his back room is an old picture of Chiang Kai-shek. He's making more money t h a n ever. Several times a waek a big li.nousine draws up in front of his' store, and well-dressed rcpre- sentativcs of big Chinese importing firms enter to talk business in a dingy back room office. On one occasion Siong bought $25,000 worth of Japanese-made nails. They weren't sold in his store. But he owns a number of trucks. He uses them to send the nails and similar articles to the interior where a shortage nf building materials exists. Bandits may hijack a truck^ now and then, b u t , it's all figured inlu the ori^e paid f by the purchaser. Although Siong is a wealthy man he doesn't look like one.' He has no car, no luxii:ious homo, j wears a colorless shirt river khaki army trousers and wraps his feet cheap coolie sandals. \ He has no bank account. Why? There's the trailer of the tax col- cctor. He knows t h a t steep taxes would cut deeply inln his profits. i* AftaHiti' Ortttttl Dtogftf.tKI Sftft BARGAIN BASEMENT Â·Shop Our Basement For These and Many Other VALUES!

Groverman blamed an over- ambitious public relations officer for the Bristol's hoisting of anything but the Stars and Stripes. "Navy regulations directly forbid flying any other flag except that of the United States," he explained. "We were wrong and a stop was put to it after that one time.
