Seneral Vandenberg Reported lo Have toled Against Air Force Seizure Of Civilian Airports For Military Use ..nominating convention to lie held in Chicago In July, Truman said jhe had declared before it will be Iree and open, in the selection of Â· jfominee -- and, he added, it will *tÂ«y that way. Democrats generally welcomed thÂ« reiteration In the light of the president's decision not to seek another term. Many of them have been wondering about Truman's .role in the choice of a new stand- Â·rd bearer. They will look for him to take Â·n active interest, but felt his statement amounted to a pledge he Â« r iU make no attempt to dictate to : the convention. . -Sen. Hubert 'Humphrey (D- Minn) called the president's statement regarding the convention "very honorable and a very fortunate thing for the party." It nwtni, laid Humphrey, that the Fort Wnrth-M'J-Oen. Hoyt Van- denbcric, Air Force chief of staff, was declared yesterday to have ruled out arbitrary action by the Air Force against operators of the airports It would like to take over. R. B. "Pop" Greug, manager of the Ontario, Calif., International Alrplrt, said Vandenberg gave this assurance two weeks ago in a letter to Representative Shcppard (D-Callf.), vice chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. Gregg told the American Association of Airport Executives, at Its convention here, that Vantkn- bcrg wrote Shfppard that the Air Force will treat the airports fairly, and that each airport acquisition case will be taken up individually. Gregg said he had asked Sheppard to protest to Vandenhcrg ajininKl "a helluva lot of damned Joe Stalin tactics" on ihs part of the Air Force. He snld a Maj. Gen. Harry' M.

Gregg said he told Johnson the land had been leased to Lockheed Air Service Corp., a defense effort, and was not available. "Johnson said he wanted the land at $1 a year for 99 years," Gregg continued. Vandenberg said he Is willing to pay an equitable amount. "I think we ought to find out who is who In the Air Force--who we are going to talk to and who wÂ« are going to listen' to." Col. Dudley Eaton, representing the air bases division of the Air Force, asked by Gregg to comment, said: "I'm sorry, bul I'm Incapable of umpiring an argument between General Vandenberg and General Johnson." Air Force Indeciilnn Gregg said the Air Force has since decided It docs not need the airport. He said he Is arranging leases with Northrop and Republic Aircraft Companies nnct the Gllfillan Radio Manufacturing Concern. "Next Tuesday I am negoliat- Ing with the California Air National Guard," he said. "They will take 30 acres bul will put money In to extend the runway and will pay their way on the same basis as the other tenants." R. W. F. Schmidt, manager of the Tucson, Ariz., Airport Au- Ihority, complained Ihe Air Force had informed him It was "recapturing" his airport, only to notify him later It had changed its mind. Schmidt said the upshot is that two tenants; who were evicted to make room for the Air Force, now a r c threatening legal a c t i o n against the airport authority. The airport managers adopted a resolution usklng that the Air Force, be required to channel its expenditures on civil airports through the Civil Aeronautics Administration. Meanwhile a f i n a l convention speaker, writer Gill Rob Wilson, called upon the association members to support foreign aid programs. The long-lime aviation editor of !he New York Herald-Tribune, now editor of Flying Magazine, deplored the sentiment t h a t "we are arming NATO for NATO's defense." "We are doing it for our defense," Wilson said. "Putting Inlo NATO what we are, we arc getting a dollar's worth of defense for about 10 cents worth Invested--so don't blow your top about helping these people, "We arc b u y i n g a great deal more than if we had lo lower our own standard of life, throw all our boys Into a war, and start a lull program of rearmament." Wilson added t h a t Korea is the Painter Found Guilty Of Fatal CamdenShooiing Death Penalty Is Decreed By Jury In Circuit Court Camdcn, Ark.-M'j-A painter, iulus H.
