MOOTHWBT AtKANSAS TIMB. Nyrttavlb, ArfcmMt FrM** Ap* «"« Troubled Officials Tackle "GlarHicaWOf Truman's "UHimatum-To-Stalin" Statement ,Wa»hington-yP)-President Tru-l manV off-the-cuff assertion that he'forced the'Sussians.out of Iran by. a personal ultimatum to Premier ' Stalin, led to some unhappy tongve-cluckiss in high quarters today. A press office "clarification", o Truman's extemporaneous state ment at a news conference yester day pointed up the embarrassmen occasioned by this and other off hand remarks that have raisec eyebrows around the world. British newspapers splashed th "ultimatum" 'story under sue headlines as "sensation at Truma talk," and "blunders by Mr. Tru man.' Iii diplomatic language an ul timatum" is regarded as a ste just short of war. Roger Tubb; assistant presidential press secre tary who formerly worked at th State Department, told reporter aft»Tward that Truman had use the word in a "non-technical, lay man sense." The note in question, he said ·was not one from the president t Stalin, but a note from this gov eminent to the Russian govern ment on March 4, 1946, publishe the next day, stating this coun try's position against Russia's con tinued occupation of Iran. "As you probably recall," Tubb 'aaid, "the Russians withdrew the! troops from Iran in May, 1946. . Truman cited the Iran matter i outlining some of .the actions h and other .presidents have, take to jneet national emergencies, was talking about his seizure o the steel industry to prevent itrike.--. · . The .important thing the presi dent wanted to:emphasize, Tubb aaid, nearly three hours later, wa that Russia listened to a stron America, and that he had to seiz the- steel industry to ksep up th production necessary to buildin up'this country's, strength. Confused explanation ' The president; he said, was re ferring to United States leadershi in the United Nations, particular ly in-the' Security Council and through diplomatic channels. H said the.note of May 6, 1946, wa a major factor in bringing abou Soviet'withdrawal from Iran. .'It.wasn't the first time the Whit House press off ice had been movet to -clarify presidential 'remarks Newsmen recalled the firing o Henry. .A.-Wallace as secretary 6 commerce on September 20, 1948 after a mixiip over a news confer ence statement by President Tru nian that he had read and approved a speech by Wallace attacking what Wallace called the "ge tough with Russia" policy. They recalled also Truman' statement at a news conference 01 November 30, 1950, about the pos sibility' of using the ttomic bomb in. Korea--later "clarified" as im plying no change in policy. In the Wallace case, Truman told reporters he had approved Wallace's speech. Two days later hi issued a statement saying h meant that he had approved Wallace's right to make the speech hut not the speech as a statemcm of policy. Six days later the president fired Wallace. Last October there was a "clarification" 1 of Truman's news conference remarks about his order directing civilian as well as mili- Chicago High School Blast Hurts 24 At Annual Party tary agencies to ; withhold information from the public which they thought' might endanger ihe nation's 'security. In a free exchange with newsmen, Truman denied he.was trying to suppress news and said editors should even withhold information in some cases when it was made public by the Defense and othei departments. Shortly afterward, Press - Secretary Joseph Short sought to "clarify" the situation by saying it wai safe to publish information pu out for publication by "responsible officials" qualified to judge Itsi relationship to security.

The second and much louder blast in the laboratory aroused the neighborhood near the Tilden Technical High School. More than 3,000 persons were in the school building attending Tilden's annual homecoming "circus" to watch pupils demonstrate their academic progress. All but three of the injured were released from hospitals after receiving treatment for cuts and lacerations. "The 'Trip Through Hades' was intended to be dramatic," said Alfred Ingle, a Tilden · chemistry teacher, "and by Hades, it was." Newell Collins, 48, a master chemist and teacher for 28 years, was in charge of 150 pupils con- ducting experiments in the chemistry laboratory. A dramatic burning of the water stunt was staged a half dozen times without mishap for audiences of 50 to 60. The water was set aflame by the injection of sodium potassium allby. Each time a drop released from an eye dropper was enough to produce the fire. The explosion occurred when an unidentified pupil shot the whole dropper-full of alloy into a beaker on a work bench and it blew up. The second blast occurred after an u aid who had fainted. He ran to get nidentified person sought to Collins 1 wife, Marjorie, 40, water arid picked up a bottle. He dumped the contents of the bottle -- a pound of- sodium -- into a sink. There was a terrific explosion that loosened the sink and shattered two panes of . glass in the laboratory. The blast was heard for blocks near the school. Damage was estimated at $100.

Seeks Recruits U.S. Blunders Helped Make Bolivian Revolt A Red Victory By DREW PEARSON Washington--The bloody inevitable revolution which has j just convulsed Bolivia is actually an important victory for Communism--thanks largely to some of the clumsiest, most shortsighted policies ever employed by the U.S. government. Eleven months ago, honest elections in Bolivia gave the largest vote for president to Victor Paz Estenssoro, exiled leader of the M,NR (nationalist revolutionary movement), a fascist-style anti-Yanqui party that had been thrown out of power in another violent revolt only five years before. The military Hmta gave him all and! the help It could, too, by stalling ' (j.i neu ciCLHions wnilc obviously building up a political machine for its chief, Gen. Hugo Ballivian. Lechin continued · shrewdly supporting Paz Estenssoro -- "out legitimate chief executive"--while actually becoming the dominant However, Paz Estenssoro did not win an absolute majority of the ballots cast, which tlin Bolivian Constitution says a candidate must to be elected. But, though the obvious solution was to hold a runoff vote between Paz and his chief opponent, instead President Mamerto Urriolagoitia turned the administration - over to a military junta and fled the country. First Mistake Shortly thereafter, Washington blandly recognized this de fa^to regime which had so crudely frustrated democracy by flouting the will of the people. That was mistake No. 1--an incredibly glaring one, in view of the fact that Bolivian Communists had been yapping for months that the "Wall Street imperialists" would use any means to keep Paz Estenssoro out of office. Up to that time; the Reds' only strength had been among a minority qf the nation's Indian tin miners. But after the State Depart. ment obligingly appeared to ful- | fill all their prsdictions by bless! ing, the Army dictatorship, the 1 Commies acquired potent new prestige. As if that weren't enough, we next set about destroying Bolivia's economy by a protracted squabble over the price of tin.. Naturally, that wasn't the object of the dls- nute, but it was very definitely the result. With tiii rxports--normally accounting for 82 per cent of Bolivia's national income--cut off, and hunger stalking the land, the situation was made to order for a man named Juan Lechin. A one- Lt.

Paz, after nil, was a thousand miles away in Buenos Aires. Finally, when Washington came through with prompt recognition of Gen. Fulgencio Batista's coup ·jainst the elected government of Cuba, Lechin and Company made their open bid for rebellion.- "If you wait for the Yonquis to help you," the astute boss told Bolivia's desperate workers and small merchants, "all you'll get is the right to starve to death under their -'protection'!"
