There are hundreds of pages of testimony, always difficult reading and difficult to condense. There are thousands of names of individuals, including assumed, names, and of committees, councils, congresses, .leagues and the like. The reptilian trails of Gerhart and Hanns Eisler, Austrian refugees from Hitler's gas-chambers, twist and squirm through the minutes of the Thomas Committee on Un-American Activities" which exposed Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt's brazen interference with the State Department on behalf of Kanns Eisler when otherwjse he : would have been excluded from our country as a Communist. Both brothers could have gone to Russia to escape the Nazi crematory, but that was not their plan. They came here, and Eleanor gpt.busy to help Hanns crash our gate. J. Edgar Hoover, director of the F.B.I., disposes of Gerhart's statement that he was not a Communist in a report to the Thomas committee which says: "In 1941, Gerhart Eisler became active in the American Communist movement. In recent years he has been a figure of importance in connection with the policies and opera- firms of the Communist party, U.S.A. XXX From approximately 1933 to approximately 1938, (he) was the representative of the Communist International to the Com munist party, U.S.A.

Eisler was the liaison between the authorities in Moscow and the Communist party, U.S.A." Remember, this was the brother of Eleanor's protege, Hanns Eisler. Gerhart, Eisler drew a living allowance in"New York from the Joint Anti-Fascist. Refugee Committee. Howard Fast, a Communist writer, was sentenced to jail and fined for refusing to give the Thomas 'committee information about this, Front. Mrs. Roosevelt gratuitgusly gave publicity to a book by Fast and she invited to dinner at the White House a naturalized Yugoslav named Louis Adamic .who exploited that sociopolitical episode into a book of the same name ridiculing Winston Churchill, a fellow guest, particularly in regard to Britain's Balkan policy. Adamic's social status with Eleanor the Great is shown by his inclusion in this party organized in the presidential mansion of the United States ostensibly to honor the British prime minister but actually to heckle and . ridicule him. Adamic, a physiqal giant, was a nonbelligerent partisan of Marshal Tito, who signalized his debt to the American liberators of Yugoslavia by slaughtering five .unarmed, unwary American fliers;' Tito's return to Yugoslavia from his safe exile in Russia was financed by the Joint Anti-Fascist Refugee Committee. When American boys were bombing the Nazi out of his na tive land, Mrs. Roosevelt's friend, Adamic, was with them in spirit, but his feet were under the table at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.

James & Moore Cleaners Silence Is Golden Rule for Them swearing that he was not a Communist, Brother Hanns, admitted to our country through the interference of Eleanor the Great, had the effrontery to testify for him. Why not? The dumb Americans would believe anything. Among other statements, Hanns said he was employed as a "pro fessor" of music at tne new school of social research. The good faith of this "school" in this narboring of an international parasite and frequent pilgrim to Moscow was touched upon by Donald T. Appell, an investigator for tne Thymas committee, last September. ' Mr. i Appell is an expert in the mys- teies of accounts who served as captain in the finance corps of the army and in the bureau of the bud- got. Robert Stripling, the chief investigator, said tne purpose of Ap pell's testimony was to show that rianns Hosier's position as "professor" was a subterfuge for the purpose of permitting him to stay High Scoring Expected in Dixie Bowl Birmingham, Ala., Dec. 24 —(IP) — William and Mary's Southe.ni Conference champions and Arkan sas, conqueror of the Southeastern Conference titleholder, inaugurate tne Dixie Bowl football game here Jan. 1 and railbirds expect a high scoring battle. Arkansas currently is installed as a slight favorite, despite a oea son's record of five victories, 'our losses and a tie. But, where the Razorbacks were rated a sixpoint edge a few days ago. the odds were "gured somewhat closer today. Some even predict the William nd Mary Indians, who lost only North Carolina during a lOgame hedule, would be given an edge y game time. The Indian stock took on a bull sh trend of late with the return condition of speedster Tommy Corczowski, out for the par;!, seven lames with a fractured ankle. Tom Powers, W. & M. assistant o'ich who came here early to ar ange for the Indians' arrival ir Birmingham Friday, said "Korc owski is running without a limp— e will be ready to go."

His return to lealth, after four games of bench ockeying, is expected to ease the jallcarrying load considerably, for "Uyde (Smackover) Scott, the ex- favy back. Despite the conservative single- wing offense used by the Razor- jacks, the speedy Porker b?.ckfield tars tallied their share of the joints during the past campaign. They opened with a (34-0 rout of lit:le Northwest Louisiana and pol- shed off the season by defeating Tulsa 27-19. In between they beat Texas State, T.C.U. and the University of Mississippi, ultimate Southeastern Conference champion. They tied the Texas Aggies and lost to Baylor, Texas, Rice, and S.M.U. The Indians ran up 301 points while yielding only 36 to their 10 opponents. They knccke'd off Davidson, The Citadel, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, V.M.I., Washington and Lee, Bowling Green, and Richmond, and lost only to North Carolina by a thin 13-7 score. o Fights Lost Might By The Associated Press Los Angeles—Harold Dade, 124, Los Angeles, outpoinled Manuel Uretcga, 124, El Paso, 10.

II said the" department now had definite infor- rnalion lhat Hanns was not a "pro "essor ol music abroad within the etler and 'spirit of the law." There 'ore he could nol, enter the Unitd Slates in non-quota status. Hanas, on his par, riot only claimed to be a professor and one oi Ihe great composers of the ages, but an artist "may I add, of international reputation." But when his merits were boiled dcvvn he was -found to be just a panhandling music teacher. And, against his name, notwithstanding Eleanor's intervention, a summary and commentary compiled by the State Department read: "The evi dence eslablishes preponderantly thai Eisler is a Communist." Mr.' Appell slashed through the new school's accounts and exposed a "Hanns Eisler scholarship fund" as a pretext to create a ialse esli- male of Eisler's stature. Doctor Johnson, the president of Ihe "new school," "with Ihe apparent purpose of qualifying Eisler as a non-quota visa applicant, changed his status from lecturer in irsusic to professor of music," Mr Appell said. "Doctor Johnson staled lhat the lew school and its students were ;o enthusiastic over his work tha 1 they wanted him to remain perma "lently," the witness continued "Therefore, Ihe appointmenl com niitlee authorized the president to exlend a 5-year appointment with Ihe title ol professor at $3,000 i y'ear.

Five other persons also met violent dealhs. The child, victim of the border strife in the Tel Aviv-Jaffa area, was found by her mother this morning, lying in a pool of blood. The 70-year-old woman was slain by a sniper as she stood on a balcony during a attack in Haifa by Hagana, the Jewish mililia. The house under attack was believed sheltering Arab riflemen.

And, an increase in feed produc-j tion is advanced as a principal method of keeping down operational costs threatening lo offset any profits expected from an assured price incrase of farm commodities. The consensus of the state's agricultural experts is that Ihe 1948 gross farm income will be slightly greater than the record breaking 1947 total but the producers will pay about five per cent inore for Ihe ilems it takes to grow and har-; vest the crops. Economists advised growers in 948 to: (1) Plan carefully for presr ml and future adjustments, (2) Conserve feed and food, (3 get full /alue for every dollar spent, (4) avoid unnecessary debts, and (5) ncrease savings. • ' '.
