The defense conceded that May got the money from the Garssons but claimed he repaid it by spending it all on a Kentucky firm, the Cumberland Lumber Companh, owned by the munitions- men. The prosecution asserted Ihe real pjr- pose behind Cumberland was to :onceal the alleged bribes and set Way ..'up in a lucrative lumber bus- icss. In this connection, Federal Justice Henry Schweinhaut instructed the jury late yesterday <hat it was immaterial whether May repaid the money.

Gruesome Death Caused by Dogs I4cw York, July 2—(UP)—Police sought to learn today who turned loose a pack of heat-crazed bull lerriers that killed an ll-y?ar-old boy and attacked a policeman a lew yards from a crowded Bronx swimming pool. Two of tne dogs were shot to death, one of them on the edge of the pool where 6,000 persons sough i relict from the season's heat record of 87.8 degrees.

Balaban's torn body was found nearby in a 1G 1-2 acre meadow separating the boathouse and swimming pool. The dogs, four full-grown prize winners and two pups, charged Patrolman Louis Rissone, 31, as he stooped over the boy's body. The dogs knocked hit club from his hand and were on top of him fighting to reach his throat when bgt.

The one hour allowance for underground travel would be retained, but he also would be paid for a 30-minute lunch period. Thus his tital produc- lion shill would be only six and one half hours, in place of his present eighl hours. Lewis also had asked for a len- cent a ton royalty instead of the five cents he has been collecting for the union welfare and> retirement fund under Ihe expired gov- rnmcnt contract. Bolh sides were wary of comrnenl, bul unconfirmed rcporls were lhat Lewis had agreed to continue the nickel collection.

Close associates said they believe Mr. Truman clings to tlie hope that the Soviet Union may ye' decide to go along with the sug gestion by Secretary of State Mar shall despite the breakup of a pre liminary conference in Paris. Speaking to a holiday crowd at' Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, Mr. Truman yesterday sharply denounced Russia's argument that the Marshall plan would mean the surrender of self-determination for nations of Europe. "This is as fallacious," he said, "as the refusal of a man to enter a profitable business partnership on the ground that it would involve interference in his private affairs." At no point did he mention Russia by name, but the target of his remarks was obvious. He called for an end to "organized mistrust" which he said leads the world's people away -from "peace and unity." He said there should be no more "propaganda attacks upon other Former King of Romania Marries Mistress Another Flying (Disc Seen Rio De Janeiro, July 5—(UP)— Former King Carol of Romania today married his red-haired mis- ;ress, Magda Lupescu, as she lay near death from anemia.

And certainly they will be grateful for intelligent outside criticism in their own and the public's interest. Direct or implied criticism is ?. vital newspaper fun ction. Members of Ihe profession will scarcely overlook its value as it applies to them and their pro •duct. But there is some doubt as to whether this criticism is as val uable as it is intcresUng. The doub arises from the fact that the corn- mission has made its report so generalized that it runs the risk of dislortion and over-emphasis. Perhaps many of its criticisms are true in individual cases. But we don't think they add up to an entirely accurate conclusion. For one thing, the reporl lends to make "big business" synonymous wilh evil. II is true that newspaper ownership is in fewer hands today t'oan 30 years ago. The same thing is true of railroads and automobile manufacturing. But itd oes not hold that the railroads and auto industry serve the public less well as a result. There arc limitations imposed on new'comcrs in the publishing field —some good and necessary, some not. The latter are being eliminated gradually by internal and ex ternal action. But with .all of them removed,- there might not be a great increase in the number of papers. There are varying degi-es of competence in newspaper publishing, as in other fields.

By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst Russia's refusal to cooperate wilh Ihe western democracies- in the economic rehabilitation of Europe will be recorded as one of the great land-marks of history. It has produced a situation, whose development is fascinating to ivalch—fearsomely so, like a struggle to keep an angrily flooded Mississippi from breaking its banks.

Unless the contracl now being drawn between the United Mine Workers and the northern mine operators proves "worse than the advance notices, I expect to sign," Campbell told a reporter. It calls for a 44 1-2 basic wage increase per hour, and a shorter work day. Other soft coal operator negotiators predicted' thai Indiana opera- lors; employing upwards of 10,000 workers, would follow suit This would assure thai at least half the nation's 400,000 miners would be in the pits when their 10- day industry-wide vacation er ; SJ' Tuesday morning.

Fire insurance policy holders paid $19,068,945, while cas ualty policy holders paid $9,900,000 And, according to the report, the firms paid back to the .citizens o' Arkansas about one-third of thi amount collected in premiums — some $20000,000.
