When the stolid co-ed and her 21- year-old fiance, George (Bud) Gollum, go on trial for murder Monday, he will be represented as the "willing tool" of the heiress to a WO.OOU estate, this source said. The spokesman declined to permit use of his name. He said that when Mr. and Mrs Walter Overell onnosed her plans to wed Gollum, she allegedly conceived tne plan to dynamite the Ovcrcl yacht, Mary E., in Newport Harbor March 15 with her parents aboard. The Overalls were bludgeoned to death before their yacnl was blown up Partly motivated by love for her and a desire to share in the Overill fortune, Gollum allegedly fell m with her plans, the spokesman said. Gollum's stepfather, Dr. Joseph otomel, yesterday reported that an attempt was made to exort $3,000 from him on promise of information to clear the young navy veteran o£ the murder charge. The retired physician said he was asked to bring the money io a rendezvous point but when ho kept the appointment with a dummy package no one appeared. High priced legal talent was arrayed for the impending battle before Superior Judge Kenneth Morrison. Both defendants have been held in jail for 10 weeks. Miss Overell was made eligible for $50,000 bail after indictment, but her chief attorney asked her to remain in jail to be available :'or defense conferences. The entire defense staff gathered yesterday for an examination of Miss Overell by psychiatrist, Dr. Hugh Wilson O'Neill. Her attorneys declined to say whether the cxaminiation was preliminary to an insanity plea. Miss Overell had planned to .wed Gollum on her 18th birthday April 30. Because she was 17 years old when the Mary E. went to the bottom of Newport bay, she cannot face the death penalty in California even if convicted of first degree murder. Principal evidence against the young couple appeared to be their identification as the purchasers- of three different batches of dynamite. Investigators also rcporlcc they found a coil of wire in Gol lum's car the same type as Uia used in the- time-bomb aboard tin Mary E. Los Angeles police chemist Raj Pinker also! fqund. that a leathei coat worn by Gollum, navy vcter an, was heavily contaminated with human blood at one time. Still at large was a "missing 1 witness, Edward Lewis Davis, long sougnt as an alleged companion o Gollum. The two reportedly were seen at a Newport cafe drawing wiring diagrams before the explo sion.

That meant he would confer with oadcrs of other parties and of his wn about the prospects of organizing a cabinet before giving a definite answer as to whether he would accept the post again. "My program is well known to you all," De Gasperi declared. "It consists in an appeal to everyone to collaborate in solving our economic problems for ihe salvation of our country." Ho resigned because of criticism of his economic policies. His statement was interpreted to mean that ho would continue Io press for a government including other parlies beside thc Communists, Socialists and Christian Democrats, whose uneasy coalition cabinets have fallen twice in Ihe last four months. The Communists and Socialists have demanded, however, thai the government m.isl be based on -..he Big Three parlies because they won last year's general election. De Nicola's office issued Ihe following communique: "The provisional chief of state received the Hon. Dr. Alcide De Gasperi at 9:30 a. m. and invited him to form a new cabinet. "The Hun. De Gasperi Reserved decision until after the necessary consultations." Two of Italy's elder statesmen, Vitlorio Emanuele Orlando and Francesco Saverio Nitti were of- tered the post of premier after De Gasperi resigned, but both ••oport- ed, after consultations, that they were unable to form a government.

ARBOGAST Washington, May 26 — i/B— R C p Cannon (JJ-MO) declared today the sharply-trimmed agriculture appropriation measure lor 1948 is "the worst bill of its kind ever sent to the House floor." In trimmnig 32 percent off President Truman's budget requests ::or the fiscal year starting July 1, Cannon told reporters, "the Republicans have tossed the farmers to the l,ons." As ranking minority member of the House Appropriations Committee, Cannon said he will lead a Democratic light against the reduction when the bill comes up for debate next week. Rep. Gore (D-Tenn) said the Democrats will carry the issue into next year's congressional elections unless the GOP-controllcd House heeds their plea. Both Cannon and Gore conceded there is little hone the House will reverse the Appropriations Committee, which is driving toward a £oal of a $6,000,000,000 reduction in the president's overall budget of $37,500,000,00 for next year. By their own figures, and as- su £? in ? the Housc backs up the i>383,427,742 agriculture cut, the Republicans still are about $3,325,000,- oOO short of the mark. Previous House-voted cuts total approximately $1,650,000,000, in addition to a $642,000,000 item inserted by the Senate in a deficiency bill. The deficiency bill maneuver requires the treasury to cancel im- mcdiatn'. instead of next year notes given by the Commodity Credit Corporation to cover losses on wartime food subsidies. Senator George (D-Ga) contended advancing the date is meaningless from a financial standpoint, but Chairman Bridges (R-NH) of the Senate Appropriations Committee argued the sum may be lopped off the 1948 budget total, since President Truman had listed it among his spending estimates for next year. Still to be reported by the House Appropriations Committee are supply bills lor the War Department, army engineers and such independent offices as the Veterans Administration. Deepest cuts in the agriculture bill yesterday were aimed at the farm tenant, soil conservation, school lunch and crop insurance programs. The committee refused to authorize any money for soil conservation payments for the 1948 crop year and cut $117,620,7!34 from the $267,620,754 requested by the prcsi- ' dent for this year. It trimmed the school lunch funds from $75,000,000 to $45,000000, withheld all funds ior new farm tenant loans, and ordered the crop insurance program cut down to "experimental" size with a suggestion it. ought tp.be liquidated. The overall cut was the largest since the -House chopped 45 per cent from the Interior Department's money last month, an action not yet approved by the Senate. SHADOW WOMAN! Here and There in Arkansas „ Conway, May 26 —(/P)—Dr. R. L. Whipple will be replaced June 1 as president of Central college, Baptist girl's school here, and thc Rev. E. C. Brown of Blytheville, Ark., chairman of the college board, will become acting president, Dr. Whipple said last night. Dr. Whipple said he was dismissed at a board meeting yesterday al Lillle Rock after he had refused to resign. He was excluded from the session he said. No reason was assigned :"or the dimisal, but Dr. Whipple said he believed il was the outgrowth of friction over Central's impending move to Lti elRtock and ils conversion Io a co-educational school as apprved by the Baptist state convenion last year. Dr. Whipple, came here nearly a year ago from Easl Texas Baptist College, Marshall, of which he was vice president. He said he would nol resisl the dismissal but that he was not ready to disclose future plans. Little Rock, May 2G—(ff > ) —Stale Comptroller John J.

Budd was convicted on charges of voluntary manslaughter in the death of Miss Smith, who was found by Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Glen Wing, in the company of a soldier, badly beaten, and who died in a Fort Smith .hospital April 13, 1944. Sentenced Io five years by a Washington circuit court jury "July 17, 1944, Budd was pardoned by former Governor Homer Adkin's Jan. 5, 1945, after an appeal to '.he supreme court had been withdrawn. Prosecuting Attorney Jeff Duly attacked legality of Ihe pardon in .-haneery court, but Chancellor John K. Butt on Feb. 13, 1945, vujfd, '.he pardon valid, a decision M'ii:\i'. the supreme court affirmed on June 9, 1945. Funeral services for Budd will be held here Sunday afternoon.

Hot Negro Freed by Order of Judge Fulk Little Rock, May 27 — (UP) — Circuit Judge Gus Fulk today granted a writ of habeas corpus freeing Charlie Wells, Jr., a Negro, from the Pulaski county penal farm. Fulk held that $68.80 fees and costs assessed in Arkadelphia municipal court Were excessive. He ruled that the Negro should have served 124 day at $1 a day, and that he actually had served 131 I days. Wells had pleaded guilty to charges of disturbing the peace, assault and battery, drunkenness and aggravated assault. port thai Mayor Earl RicKs and Hoi Springs civic groups have made a bid and will confer wilh Governor Ben Laney. It has been charged by Governor —-y and Board Chairman H.°r- L. Thomas that Litlle Rock has shown little interest in the school during the years it's. been there; and further reports indicate that although tho school hospital is supposed to treat the poor from all over the state 40 per cent of these indigcnts come from Little Rock alone. The obvious inference is that Little Rock finds the state school a good thing—but the state could do better for all its people with a location elsewhere. * Arkansas as a whole is opposed '- to concentrating its state institutions in the capital city. The medical school probably ought never to have been divorced from Fayettc- villc, the university-scat town. But since it has been, and its experience in Little Rock is unsatisfactory, why not try Hot Springs next? It is a world-famous medical center already, both for private clinics and for the armed forces. The school would gain prestige and the people of the whole stale might be better served if tne exist,4 ing property and the new memorial w state hospital should be .established in Hot Springs. * * it By JAMES THRASHER Peacetime- Invasion A peacetime American invasion of Europe has been suggested by Sen. Owen Brcwster as a help toward getting the war-weary countries back on their fiscal feet. Mr. Brewster would open up a second front in England and on the continent with a large force of tourists. Their spending, he believes, would •S be a pleasant means of building,up American "imports" and European dollar balances. This suggestion would have been impossible, of course, without the airplane. Before the wax American travel in Europe was largely confined to businessmen, people with plenty of money and leisure, and schoolteachers who, though not too ilush, had a nice long vacation. For the millions who get two weeks olt' a year, the long boat trip made a European holiday too short to be worth while, even if they had the ,j5 money. - Now the time problem has been solved. But • there are still drawbacks in the Brewster plan. Plane fares are about $100 too high, due to the insistence of Britian's government-monopoly airlines. Travel restrictions and red tape arc irksome. These conditions can and should be remedied. If Mr. Brcwster can do anything about getting them fixed, he will have an important side accomplishment to his credit. Other difficulties might be harder to solve. Our own resort opera- a, tors wouldn't like the idea at all— including those in Mr. Brewstcr's own state of Maine, who take in about 100 million tourist dollars a season. Seeing America first is a big business. Some people just wouldn't want to fly the ocean. Also there is the chance that many of the several million young Americans who went touring at government expense during the war have had their fill of •foreign parts for a long time to come. Others may shy away from foreign trav.al for a. different rea- v son, after having done some postwar winter training for it in Havana. Twenty-five bucks a day for a $3 hotel room can satisfy a hunger for the exotic pretty quickly. So there would probably have to be a big selling job done in this country before our vacationers started heading for the Atlantic like so many lemmings. And the European governments which would play host to the visitors would have to give som.e of their citizens a short indoctrination course. The quaint old custom of socking the American .tf.i tourist from two io four times the normal price for everything would have to be abandoned, too. All in all, though, it sounds like abiity his finding will be ready "in a couple of weeks." 2. He would not- regard a separate peace with Germany and Japan a violation of an international agreement. "If the other party consistently fails to carry out or voi- lates the terms, I don't think you are under any moral obligaion. x x x-I don't see why we are obligated to go on forever under these strains." 3. "More rigorous action" is needed in foreign countries to col- ect food which is now going into the black markets. Hoover told the news conference :hat efforts to obtain world recovery are hampered by a factor Senators Balk at Concession on Labor (AP)—Means Associated Press (NEA)—Means Newspaper Enterprise Ass'n. PRICE 5c COPY^'f* Shows How which was not present after end of the first world war. the He said this factor is that "prac- Lically every country has gone over to some type of collectivism." Hoover remarked that he did not intend to discuss the merits of "these proposed Utopias." But he contended that they had retarded recovery through shorter hours for workers and loss of initiative for tne "managerial class." He said that the areas of the world which have not adopted "collectivism" — the western hemisphere, South Africa and Australia, with six per cent of the world's population — are carrying 90 percent of the relief load in western Europe. He called this "testimony to the value of the free enterprise system as an agent of productivity." By SANDOR S. KLEIN Washington, May 27 — (UP) — Former President Hertfert Hoo'ver is urging the United States today to pursue a "separate peace" formula to bypass Russia's "continuous, obstruction" of efforts to rehabilitate Germany, Korea. Japan and Only by reviving the economic of those three countries can . the heavy relief burden be lifted from American taxpayers, he said in a memo to Chairman John Taber of the House Appropriations Committee. Mr. Hoover was invited before an appropriations subcommittee today to explain why he feels this country should make an immediate separate peace with Japan and "contemplate" the same for Germany if Russia does not change her tactics. "We should wait no longer," Mr. Hoover said. "Russia will not make war about it." By blocking economic unification of former enemy areas, the former president said, Russia is following a method by which the United States "can be bled white by relief measures." Mr. Hoover's appearance before the appropriations subcommittee was for the specific nurpose of supporting an administration request for $725,000,000 for relief needs in the U. S. occupied areas of Germany, Japan and Korea during the fiscal year starting July 1.

Sen. Robert A. Taft, R., O., chairman of the Senate conferees, outlined their stand as thsy scheduled showdown sessions today and tomorrow with House conferees. Taft hoped the final draft would be finished by tomorrow night. But there were a score or more of unsettled issues, most of them involving the more stringent provisions of the House bill. House conferees were expected to yield on most of the disputes but not without trying to squeeze at least minor concessions from the Senate. The unsettled issues included: 1. A House prohibition on indus- trywide bargaining. 2. A House proposal that private employers be allowed to obtain injunctions against unlawful strikes. 3. House provisions to permit damage suits and injunctions against ase of force and violence, mass picketing, sympathy and "monopolistic" strikes and walkouts to enforce "featherbedding" demands. 4. A House-approved "bill of rights" regulating relations between unions and 'their members. 5. A House proposal that em- ployes be required to vote in a government-supervised election to choose between striking and an employer's "final" offer. 6. A House provision making it an unfair labor practice for a union to strike to enforce demands which do not deal with wages, hours and working conditions. (This section would forbid strikes for a union shop or a welfare fund.) Explaining his view that the Senate could make no more "substantial concessions," Taft expressed fear that House proposals for restricting the right to strike might lead to widespread defiance of the law. He said the Senate conferees unanimously opposed government- conducted strike votes because of the expense and because they be- "ieved employes always would vote to strike even though the employer's offer was described as "final". A wartime strike vote conducted jy the National Labor Rclaions Board, under the Smith-Connally act, cost more than $163,000.
