No Violence In contrast to the picket line violence of the four preceding days, all was serene at the gates of the machinery works in suburban West Allis today. One rain-drenched picket kept a solitary vigil as more than 1.800 non-striking production workers entered the factory this morning, according to the company's l.gures. Yesterday's mclec which occurred as cay shift workers left the plant, resulted in seven arrests and injury to four police officers. Authorities said there were fewer than 40 pickets at the main gates when workers left this afternoon. There was no trouble.

London Paper Tells Atom Bomb Secret London, Nov 1 (AP) The London Daily Express said tonight the United States has about 100 atom bombs-probably Bfi each feet long, torpedo shaped and powered with 100 pounds of I Plutonium in two lumps. The article, under a streamer I headline "Atom Bomb Secret Out," based on "authentic details." it said, but gave no source. It was written by Chapman Pinchcr. the newspaper's weapons expert.

Pincher said each bomb weighed 9.000 pounds, but that this was composed mainly of the casing and a protective lead covering for a gun tube containing the two lumps of explosive which were described as "safe" until "brought together rapidly." The article was accompanied on the front page by an artist's conception of the bomb, with a cutaway portion showing the working parts. The casing design was conventional, with four small fins, but it also carried two "drogues" parachutes open at each end which. Pinchcr wrote, operated to slow down the descent for better control of a time fuse mechanism operating a detonator. The detonator was nut shown in the drawing or described in the article. In Washington, Maj.

Gen. Leslie R. Groves, head of the Manhattan project which manufactured the atomic bombs during the war, said that in accordance with United States War department policy he could neither "confirm nor deny" any of the details of the Express story. "It's a very interesting story," he commented, however. Although the War department released a lengthy report outlining some of the research involved in producing the atomic bomb, it has not disclosed anv definite riimnn- biuiib or oincr structural uciaus ot the missile.

At least 10 persons suffered fractured arms or legs and more than 100 were given first aid treatment. Despite efforts of mounted police riding three abreast and several deep, the regal entourage was stalled in a surging throng which had been building up throughout the day around the Empire theater in Licccstcr square. Through a path that was slowly cleared for them, the king, queen and two princesses were escorted to their especially constructed and Boys Convicted Of Two Deaths Yuba City. Nov. 1 (AP) I Two young high school boys were convicted today of the ambush murders of the parents of one of them.

Next Monday the two boys. Billy Anderson, 16. and Nathcrn James. 15, will hear Judge Arthur Coals of superior court pronounce the mandatory sentences of life imprisonment. "Guilty of murder in the first degree" was the verdict of a jury of five women and seven men who had listened for four and one-half days to details of the killing Sept.

8 of Billy's father and step-mother, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Anderson.

The verdict was the same on each of two counts. The only motive ascribed for the killings was Billy's desire to run away from home and his testimony that his father whipped him. He got Nathcrn to help him. one firing a rifle and the other a shotgun. Upon instruction from the Court, each verdict formally found that both boys were under 18.

California law makes the death sentence mandatory for first degree murderers 18 years or older, but forbids execution of anyone under 18. U.I. Division Called Unique Galesburg, 111., Nov 1 (AP) George D. Stoddard, University of Illinois president, today termed the university's Galesburg division "unique in the history of education" and said the "only reason we could get it is that we had to have it." Addressing the opening convocation of the undergraduate branch here, Stoddard outlined difficulties encountered in acquiring the 117-building former Mayo General hospital and recalled what he termed the "pessimistic outlook of some that wc could not establish a complete and coordinated undergraduate body in 30 days after transfer from the Army." Terming the branch the university's "most glamorous division." Stoddard said no university started -so fast and has been so successful in overcoming the handicap of late planning. Turning to the 65 million dollar biennial budget which the univer sity will submit to the legislature.

Stoddard declared it "is probably the largest ever asked by any of the large midwestern universities. He said if any restriction of enrollment ever is necessary, it will be in succeeding freshman classes, with the degree of curtailment dependent upon how much educational cost the state can absorb.

Nov. 1 (AP) After Bailiff Bernard Waters handed him an envelope containing $300 to which was clipped a paper Containing four notations, Circuit Judge Leonard C. Reid today or dered Dorph Brown, 59, to show cause why he should not be pun ished for contempt of court. Waters said the envelope was banded him before a hearing on a separate maintenance suit by Mrs. Louise Brown, Ottawa.

111., school teacher. Waters said a man who gave him the envelope said "Give to the judge. I'm the defendant in the Brown versus Brown case." Brown, dean of junior colleges for the Chicago board of education, had filed a cross-bill asking a divorce from his wife, whom he remarried six months ago, after an earlier divorce 20 years ago. Judge Reid read the notations attached to the envelope into the record: "1. No alimony.

Divorce." Giesler Engaged To Defend Sally Los Angeles. Nov. 1 (AP) Sally Rand engaged the famous criminal lawyer, Jerry Giesler, today to defend her in a municipal court jury trial Nov. 13 against police allegations that her costume covered very little, indeed, of Sally. She appeared briefly before Judge Kenneth A.

White on the charge of giving" an "obscene, indecent, immoral, impure exhibition which tended to corrupt the morals of youths and others." Said exhibition was her fcathcr-and-bubble dance, familiar to bald-head rows of the nation since the Chicago World's Fair of 1933, in a Broadway theater here Thursday night. Sgt. W. K. Madden of the vice squad asserted: "All she was wearing was a very small triangle patch." Sally said today: "It's the same dance I've been doing since 1942; the same dance I did in San Francisco." She was acquitted there recently of indecent exposure.

Furthermore, said 42-year-old Sally, "I did the same dance at the matinee today before I came here to court; and the police were there but they didn't bother me." She and Howard R. Williams, theater manager, charged under the same municipal code, pleaded innocent and were at liberty under bail pending the trial. ief Near in Shipping Strike Washington. Nov. 1 (AP) In a move aimed at ending the month-long Pacific shipping strike the Maritime commission author ized its agents on the West Coast to pay the wage boosts recently negotiated on the East Coast for ship officers.

A. J. Williams, Maritime commission secretary, told a reporter the commission expected the agents would carry out the "authorization," which he said was similar in form to instructions issued frequently to general agents and consistently carried out. Compliance would free about half the West Coast ships now tied up. those which arc federally-operated and government-owned.

They probably could not move out of ports, however, until the C.I.O. longshoremen's strike, also in progress for some time, is settled. But the stevedore dispute is reported near settlement. The Maritime commission said it acted "in the interest of conformity in general agent operations on all coasts."

Higgins, New Orleans mass boat-builder. R.F.C. has not yet ruled on his request for 11 million dollars to set up the housing business. Lack Sufficient Investment From both the R.F.C. and the Na tional Housing Agency it was learned that the basis of R.F.C.'s action was belief that the rejected companies, including Lustron, were not putting enough of their own capital into the financial plans.

At N.H.A., officials privately denounced, what they called R.F.C. "business as usual" policy and fail ure to recognize the urgency of the housing shortage. Wyatt, it was learned, has written a sharp lette? to R.F.C. voicing this view. 132 Absentee Ballots Returned in Dewitt Clinton, Nov.

The agency Originally had planned to complete its major decontrol program today. Officials said the necessity for consulting other government branches on various phases of it, however, will hold it up for another week or more. List Fills Six Pages The miscellaneous items decontrolled today made a six-page list. The O. P.

Bridget Waters' murder trial today went a letter from her slain husband, Frank, to his mother, dated Oct. 6, 1944, and saying "our real trouble started" when she became pregnant, and asserting she insisted upon having an abortion. The letter, written from England to Mrs. Martha Waters in Los Angeles was introduced over objections of defense counsel, L. O.

Mrs. Waters previously testified that her husband had wanted an abortion and that she had refused. When tests showed the Irish-born Mrs. Waters was pregnant, the letter said she went into a rage and refused to have a child. "She said if I wanted a child, I would have to adopt one," the letter continued.

The letter was a long dissertation on their marital troubles. It disclosed an alleged suicide attempt on Waters' part after she had joined him in London. It said "she ran upstairs screaming at the top of her lungs that she was going to end it all and I had to wrest a syringe from her. A few nights later she took a half grain of morphine." At court recess, Bridget read the letter, occasionally banging her fist on the counsel table and once breaking into loud sobs. The letter added that after Mrs.

Waters allegedly insisted on an abortion, she later "began to recant and said she wanted a baby." State G.O.P. Gain Forecast Springfield. Nov. 1- (AP) Alfred F. Schupp.

R. is interested in obtaining a loan from the United States. You had some rather harsh words to say about 'dollar diplomacy," indicating that you considered this one means whereby one state exercises pressure on another. If Russia received an American loan would you be fearful of an American attempt to exercise pressure on the Soviet? "4. Premier Stalin said Russia was indifferent to the presence of American warships in the Mediterranean.

You said, 'it is well known that squadrons of warships and military planes appear sometimes in the seas and in places where they were absent before whenever this is considered essential for achiev ing the greatest possible success in diplomatic negotiations. Did you have other warships or planes than the Americans in mind, or does this mean that you are more concerned than Premier Stalin over the Medi terranean situation? "5.

In your speech you suggested that the Security Council should know the strength of the armed forces of the United Nations 'stationed at present outside the confines of their This went a step further than the original Soviet proposal, which referred only to troops in countries not formerly enemies.

In general it has appeared to Americans that Premier Stalin's replies were calculated to inspire confidence in the aims of the Soviet union, to raise hopes of permanent peace, to allay fears and cause the war of nerves to subside. To many, on the other hand, your own speech has seemed harsh, uncompromising and something less than generous in judging the motives and aims of Russia's wartime comrades in arms. Some Americans have felt that Pre mier Stalin was creating an atmosphere of confidence in which Mr.

Molotov, the tough, shrewd negotia tor, could work the more effective ly; others that there were international differences between the two statements calculated to increase confusion and disunity among the nations.
