"And then there's his son—young Sammy Burkett—whose most recent feat in fishing annals is landing a fourpound bass.

AP Foreign Affairs Analyst While the delegates were gathering in Paris for what someone has described as "an Allied conference to make peace among themselves," one of the world s great humanitarian organizations •— the lied Cross — was meeting in uc- ncva and, among other things, discussing preparations for 'war. A correspondent writing from the former scat of the League of Nations, where numerous organizations have met this year m the interests of the general welfare, says: "Genovcse are optimistic aooul their town's future as a center of international .toodwill and peace. However, the general hopefulness is somewhat clouded by a shadow emanating from the discussions at the International Red Cross conference, where delegates arc unanimously concerned about the Sees Longer Life Soviet Prof. Alexander A.

A strikingly similar idea comes from 48 members of the Swiss parliament, who have suggested that their government should propose, at forthcoming international conferences, the creation on all continents of "oases of huinanil}' 1 consisting of. whole neutralized countries where people of all nationalities could seek refuge during wars. The proposal, in the form of a public appeal, says "thinking In 1 .inanity is more and more convinced that the end of the last war has not brought a true peace" and that "the gap between west and east grows ever larger.' 'There is no other way, the statement continues, "lo save millions from certain death than lo create these cases of humanity where every man would have the same rights whatever his nationality and where his economic situation would be assured."

A vcl crans group at Balesvillc is charg< ing eleclion irregularities and ask' ing removal of certain officials.

If you become disabled or die, will you or your family have enough life insurance protection to remain independent an* not suffer from privation?

Fields ioday continued to defy Congress by refusing for the fourth time to produce records that had been subpoenaed by a special House committee investigating surplus property. The committee has stated earlier that such Field's refusal would result in his being held in contempt of Congress and his case turned over to the speaker of the House for reference to a federal grand Such a move would be consistent wilh Ihc bipartisan, or rather nonpartisan, complexion of our foreign policy. This lack of political division on international affairs is certainly one of the happiest pages in the current history of our foreign 'Olalions.

Slaugh ter scoffed at tlic threat sayin Fields had no such authority. Slaughter asked Fields whether, he had brought cancelled checks, cash book, ledger sheets, or any other paper that would show details of the fee. The only memorandum that Fields has furnished the committee thus :far names two of the men whom he furnished the checks'as John Doe. Following the conclusion of Fields' testimony, Slaughter notified the official committee reporter to note in the record the return of Fields' subpena. Presumably, this was a formality incident upon presentation of contempt charges. Fields had identified the two John Does as John Brunei- and Howard W. Payne.
