The victory, accomplished before Queen Mary and 15,000 other tennis fans, elevated Miss Osborne to a position alongside Jack Kramer .of Los Angeles, who recaptured the men's singles title for -the United States, yesterday with straight set triumph over another California!!, Tom Brown. New York, July 4 — The interlocking association of the Roerich mystical cull and the New Deal, through the medium of Henry Wallace and several other leading personalities, has never been fully revealed in its stealthy reality. Wallace was a member of this group and he appointed Louis L. Horch, its principal financial backer, to very influential jobs in the Departments of • Agriculture and Commerce. Old Henry Morgonthau, the father of Henry the Morgue, who was Roosevelt's secretary of the treasury, fell for a new ism called bioshophy and associated with the guru, or swami, of that outfit, one Frederick Kcltner, whose publications were put out by the press of Nicholas Konstantin Roerich, at the Roerich Lamasery and museum, also known as a "master institute," at ,.310 Riverside Drive. Keltncr is NUill in action. I telephoned his office for an appointment but was told that he was on tour and could not be reached. This struck me as strange. Most showmen, lecturers and preachers who work the road arc booked methodically and can be caught-by phone, mail or telegram in a few hours. The young lady agreed that he could be compared to a ghost. I then learned that Sol Bloom, the New Deal congressman whose district includes the Lamasery, actually had lived in the place for some years. Mr. Bloom is one of the oldtimers of Congress. He is now 77 and he h:is the happy and mature disposition of a fellow who never took hims'nf too seriously and lived by the way as he traveled through life. He was born in Pekin, 111., "and was taken in to San Francisco by his parents when the country west of the Mississippi was still frontier.' Sol was a showman at the first Chicago world fair in 1893, managing all concessions including a pitch on the streets of Cairo where a buxom babe introduced to west- cm culture a squirm called the lootchy-koolchy discoursed to the hin wails of a snake-charmer's •cod. "She wriggles and she's not i worm — for a dime, ten cents" vas the wham-sock closing phrase of the cultural discourse of. the ratuiional midway professor at such displays. The professors themselves were almost as groat an attraction as the hootch dancers, if whom Mr. Bloom now reveals ,hcre wore perhaps as many as 15: In Congress, Spl has been a New Dealer, of course, because he is an organization Democrat. In jus- ice to him, however, it must be allowed that his indorsement of ,he Roosevelt program in its en- .irety was only a neck-sound.

Walnut St. ICE COLD Watermelons DAY or NIGHT 'It's a Wonderful Life' Plays Sunday at Rialto "Ah! Ah! Ah! That's an old one!"says Donna Reed, as James Stewart flounders for words in this scene from "It's a Wonderful Life." • . cording to information I have received." Mr. Bloom at this point expressed an interesting personal opinion of the Roerichs which is the observation of an old carnival showman who has seen the best of them close up, fortune-tellers, hyp- nolisls, phrcnologisls, astrologers and all. "Horch is not a bad fellow," Sol said. "He just got interested in Roerich's painting and stuff. I thought the paintings were terrible myself, and every time I would look at one of them I would want to go and get a drink. I haven't been up there for years now but I did live there and that's my voting address. "I heard Roerich was dead some time ago," Sol said. I don't like to doubt an old friend's word, but Sol is in politics and he certainly was nesting in the lamasery, and in very queer company, and now he lells me lhat Henry Wallace never was around in his day. "I didn't even know he was in the picture," he said. "They're all nutty, you know." But Wallace certainly w>s "around" in those days. The Lamasery was "dedicated" with special ceremonies and oratorical sel- pieces on Oct. 17, 1929, the year .the big panic broke. Mrs. Sina Fosdick, one of the faithful then and still, flatly says she saw Wallace enter the gigantic ioss-house several times "with his collar turned up." II was her impression that he was trying to escape recognition. Others have said Wallace wore dark glasses on those visits. However, there is no doubt or mystery now. about his association with Roerich. "' .-."'. The part that I have difficulty believing in Mr. Bloom's story is his insistence that he didn't know .Wallace was in the circle, didn't know Wallace sent Roerich to Asia for the' Department' of Agriculture on a botanical mission and didn't ft) James Stewart makes a notable return to the screen in Frank Capra's new production for Liberty Films, "It's a Wonderful Life," in which comedy, romance/ and fantasy arc blended in what is s.aid :o be rich entertainment.

You are cle, our foreign relations were not in the best hands in- His case. After Horch broke, with Roerich over money matters^ he said that, whe'n'hc and Mrs. Horch were p^y- ing the bills for this champion mp'ocher of them all, Mrs. Roerich told him and :. Mrs. Horch, one Reed is co-starred in this Radio release. Locale of the story is the small town of Bedford ''Falls in upstate New York, the home of George Bailey, who is burning to get'away from it and see the world. Four times he nearly succeeds, only, to be foiled — chiefly by the needs of building and loan company founded years before by his father for the purpose of getting the townspeople out of old Henry Potter's slums into decent homes. Owing to its lenient policy, and the efforts of Potter to force it to dissolve, the company has a tough fight for survival. When George 'is •forced to take over the presidency from his unbusinesslike but benevolent Uncle Billy, he almost resigns himself to small town life. He marries his childhood sweetheart, Mary Hatch and they have c four children. George's world nearly comes t: a Wonderful Life" as Capra's su- $8,000 of company cash the day the examiner is making an audit. George passionately declares thai he wishes he had never been born. At that point, a "heavenly messenger' 'arrives and shows him what would have happened if he hac neVer been born. Appalled, George begs to be allowed to live. Content ment and happiness come tp him when his loyal friends', in i-the'-' com munily rally to his aid. '' Stewart's portj^y.al of George is said'to'be thejmost'delightful of his career.

There was no satisfactory explanation of the phenomenon. The saucers first were reported seen in the state of Washington on June 25. Then persons in other western states said they had seen them. The peak came over the July 4 holiday, when tney first were reported seen east of the Mississippi. The latest tabulation showed the mystery objects had been reported seen in 38 states, the District of Columbia and in Canada. Yesterday they were reported to have been seen in more than a dozen states' and in southwestern Ontario. An aerial patrol by the Oregon National Guard reported it had failed to sight one of the objects. The guard planned to send a plane today to a spot near St. Maries, Idaho, where a woman said 10 persons saw eight of the discs disappear in timber on July 3. Most observers usually agreed that the objects were round or oval. Guesses as to their size have ranged from that of a five-room house or large airplane to oae de- Huge Flight of U.S. Planes Go to Germany Frankfurt, Germany, July 7 —(/P) —The U. S. Army Air Force said today the largest flight of giant B-29 Superfortresses ever to cross the Atlantic arrived unncralded in Germany Saturday. Twenty-one of the Superfort- resses arrived at Giebelstadt airport, 50 miles southeast of Frankfurt. Six other were said to have been delayed en route, four at Goose Bay, Labrador, one in Scotland and one at Stuttgart. The flight was described as a "routine training mission" of crews of the 97th Very Heavy Bomb Group from the Smoky Hill Airfield, Salina, Kans.- scription of "a silver ball, inches in diameter."

It now goes to the Senate. The House action followed assertions by Republicans and Democrats alike that Congress- should have permitted cash payment in the first place, when it enacted the Vote Expected Tomorrow on Income Tax Bill Washington, July 7 — (/P) — The House Rules Committee kept the new income tax reduction bill on Us fasl limetable today, sending it to the House floor for two hours of debate and expected passage to- lorrow. The bill, proposing income tax cuts ranging from 10.5 to 30 percent starting next January 1, is identical, except for the effective date, to one vetoed last month by President Truman. The effective date of the vetoed bill would have 'Fight Or Die' Policy Adopted by Nationalists been July 1, 1947. The rules committee ordered that no amendments except those sponsored by the Ways and Means Committee, which drafted the bill, shall be considered. The Ways and Means group has come clarifying and corrective changes to propose. The House Republican leadership, confident it can override another veto,, has scheduled the.bill for passage tomorrow. The Senate also plans early action, possibly by Shanghai, July 7 — (/?) —, China today commemorated the tenth anniversary of the outbreak of war with Japan, and grimly considered Chiang Kai-Shek's "fight or die" challenge to his nation in its- grow- ijig civil war with Chinese Communists. The fighting in Manchuria was reported quiescent, after the recent bloody loss and recapture of Szepingkai by government troops but, in Shantung province, Communists were expanding bridgeheads across the Yellow river. Addressing his people by radio .on Ihe eve of the anniversary, Generalissimo Chiang told the Chinese they can cither: "Remain aloof from the present struggle and watch the nation die, or realize the Communist impcra- listic ambitions and join in the war effort to defeat them," Victory over Japan is meaningless, he said, unless- the government recovers Manchuria from the Communists ana! assures the integrity of all Chinese territory. o Over 500 Die in Accidents in 3-1 terminal pay law last have bcen year.

Another possible reason for the law's imperfections is- the fact that politics and personalities were always in the background during the pro-and-con discussion. Unfortunately, issues cannot be debated and bills cannot be drafted in a her, mctically sealed compartment of the mind. All the clashes'between legislators and labor representatives surely did not improve the Taft-Hartley Bill. But there are two things that could be done, even if the law were as bad as its opponents say it is; even if there were not one good thing about it, as Mr. Truman thinks; even if not only Mr. Taft and Mr. Hartley but the majority of both parties who voted for their bill were maliciously bent on destroying organized labor in America. The constitutionality of the law's provisions could be tested in trie courts. If any or all of the provisions were found to deprive a citizen or group of citizens of their constitutional rights, the Supreme Court could overrule the act of Congress. Then there is an election 16 months away. The voters will have the duty of electing a whole new House of Representatives and onerthird of the Senate. If the Tafl-Hartley Act w:is ' a denial of the popular will, the common people still have the means of asserting their rights. Argentina jes Aid to Europe Buenos Aires, July 7 — (UP) Argentina's resources were pledged by President Juan E. Pcron today to aid the spiritual iand economic rehabilitation of all suffering nations, particularly in Europe. Peron in a national broadcast last night urged economic aid to distressed countries, spiritual disarmament and establishment of an enduring peace through "creation of a world conscience which puts men above systems of ideology." His speech, widely heralded in advance, dealt only in generalities. He did not, as some had expected, make a concrete proposal that Argentina lead in forming a "third group" of nations allied neither to the United States nor Russia. He did urge "eradication of capitalistic and totalitarian extremism, whether of the right or left."

Pledg Truman Urges U.S. to Admit Europeans Washington, July 7 — (/P)—President Truman today asked Congress to admit a "substantial number" of Europe's displaced persons into the Sunited States as immigrants In a message, Mr. Truman told Congress "special legislation limited to this particular emergencx" would be necessary if the United States is to share'in offering "an opportunity for a new life to these people." Mr. Truman said a survey of those in the assembly centers indicates "these are people who oppose totalitarian rule, and who because of their burning faith in the principles of freedom and democracy have suffered untold privation and hardship." He added: "Because they are not Communists and are opposed to communism, they have staunchly resisted all efforts to induce them to re- .urn to Communist - controlled areas. In addition, they were our individual allies in the war. "In the light of the vast numbers of people of all countries that we nave usefully assimilated into our national life it is clear that we could readily absorb the relatively small number of these displaced persons who would be admitted." He reminded Congress that he previously had asked it to provide for admission of the displaced groups. can presidential 1 ' norhinatibn appeared in the'making today...

A Dewey aide said Hopkins and ' 3riggs had driven more than 300 miles from the Lone Star state to 'pay their respects" to the governor. But political observers, aware .hat Taft forces reputedly believed the bulk of the Texas delegation will support the Ohio senator at the national convention next June, saw in the visit an attempt by Dewey backers to cut into Taft there. Texas has .40 votes. Dewey scheduled conferences today ' with Lew Wentz, Republican national committeeman from Oklahoma, and executives of several Oklahoma nesvspapers. The governor, here with his wife and two sons for a thro.e day visit with Mrs. Dewey's parents, Mr. and Mrs. O. T. .

He is also a me nib \ of the association's executive council, succeeding the late Harry 'Daughcrly of Arkadelphia. shall Albert Kesselring, whose death sentence as a war criminal has toeen commuted to life imprisonment, is one of the truly fabulous figures of the Second World War. The decision of Lieut. Gen. Sir John Harding, British commander in the central Mediterranean, to spare the life of this career German militarist is a footnote in large type to dying British war animosities. Kesselring, at 60 a veteran of 40 years of soldiering through two wars, has had more military ups and downs than a roller coaster. He began as a young foot soldier, made and lost a great fame in the air as a Luftwaffe leader, and wound up as Nazi Germany's last stout ground strategist. He failed both in aerial offense and ground defense — but both his offensive and defensive campaigns will be long remembered and studied. Britain in particular will forever the defense of Italy. The stubborn ; fight he made up the long Italian jpeninsula — particularly at Cassino and Anzio — won him grudging admiration from American and British leaders on this "forgotten front." Just before war's end Adolf Hitler summoned him to the defense of the western front — a cause already lost. He was put on trial before ' a British military court as a war criminal for executing 335 Italians in the Ardeatine caves in reprisal for the death of 32 of his soldiers, caused by bombs hurled by Italian underground agents into a German column marching through Rome. "Shooting of 300 or more criminals — as I was convinced they were — was the fairest solution in the eyes of history, morality and humanity," Kesselring testified, citing alleged cases of well poisoning, mutilation and torture by Italian partisans against his troops.

But the British military court, after all the evidence was in, still doomed Kesselring and two other Gentian generals to death. Civilians may debate the wisdom D-Va, and Smahters (D-Fla).

BLAKESLEE Associated Press Science Editor New York, July 7 — (/Pi— Much of what has bcen described about the flying saucers reported from nearly all parts of the country may be explained by certain laws of eyesight. All objects appear round or nearly so at any distance which is close to the limit of how far a person can see. If the objects are seen by re fleeted light, as in most cases reported, they are almost certain to be round, and if the reflections are sunlight then the sizes reported are those which would be expected from distant light reflections. Descriptions of virtually all the saucers as round and flat tit exactly with the tricks that eyes play. This trickiness varies with differences in weather and lighting.,_ Thic vi'rHpr has seen flVl year.

Petrill owas questioned by Subcommittee Chairman Carroll D, Kearns, R., Pa., himself a musician and a member of the AFM. Kearns assailed Petrillo as a monopolist who has limited "freedom of religion and education." He asked Petrillo how many musicians now were employed. "There are 30 per cent of the musicians making a living; and 30 per cent making not quite a living and 20 per cent who have quit because there is no business and 20 per cent who are lawyers and doctors who 'used their cards to get diplomats," Petrillo said.
