D Kewschart, above—based on American Iron and Steel Institute figures—gives tonnage of steel for ingots and castings poured during 1950 on a monthly basis. Chart also compares the record y#ar with 1949 when coal and steel strikes in the last quarter sharply reduced output. Big snowstorm late in November, 1950, caused loss in production of about 450 million tons. Thus 1950 output is expected to be 96.5 million tons, still an all-time record, instead of the 97 million tons previously figured on. «R CENT OF 1935-39 AVERAGE .220 1949    1950 John Q.

Marines, Soldiers Set Up Show Again ► Pu^an, Korea. Dec. 26— rUP>— TJ; S. Marines and soldiers bloodied hilt unbeaten ¡ti almost six months of Korean fiRhtinp, .set up shop ajjaln today amid familiar surroundings fJr another round with the Chinere and Korean Communists. ** With tears in their eyes, the fighting rear guard oi the abandoned K’ungnain beachhead do- i barked from ships that, carried' them south with practically all' their equipment. "We fought with valor wherever we went,” Marine Maj. Gen. Oliver P. Smith said. “We defeated every; Chinese unit we mot."    | The marine.-; and soiaiers wore dirty, heavy winter clothing. Bu>, i for a change, they were clean underneath it. They also were eating better and most of them were characteristically cocky, but some of them expressed wishes that Korea be given to whomever wanted it. The marines and soldiers are t{iking up new defense positions on Hhe southeastern tip oi the Korean peninsula in the approximate region of those they held last July, i when the Leathernecks entered the j Korean war. | Brig. Gen. Edward A. Craig, as-| sistant divhion commander who ! led the first marine;; ashore in ! Korea, said the marines always 1 have been ready for battle, “Including right now.” j Smith said »he corps abandoned 1 none oi it> wounded and none of its weapons, supplies or equip-1 ment. i The wounded were remove d , from the evaluation fleet to the j Swedish Red Cross hospital here, | where there are 310 beds. 1 Trucks, if’eps and other vehicles arrived with bullet holes in them : and the dried blood oi Americans leaked on them from the bloady ’ withdrawal in North Korea. “We were rioinf; all right against ; the Chinks and would have mopped 1 them up proper if wo were left I alone,” SrL L. C. Smith of Philadelphia, Pa., said. Corp. Richard F. Wolfe of Bethlehem, Pa., said the marine should not have been pulled back until “We Rave those laundryinen a Hood lesson.” “I don’t like running from the Chinks when we know we can beat the hell out of them,” Pfc. Robert L. Dillie of Parker. Ind.. said. Corp. Edward G. Flick of Cumberland, Md., said “I'm a peace-ul fellow who lives a quiet life.” Subversive Board Draws Opposition Washington, Dec. 27 —UP)-- The administration appeared lieaded for trouble today with the hew congress oV6r~ the fl^e ' p6i'sbns named by President Truman, to the ‘■ubversives a q t i v i t i es control board.    ' Chairman McCarrain iD-Nev) of the senate judiciary committee said he had heard "some rathfer serious comments - about some of them.” “I think there will be a demand for hearings.” he told reporters, added that the committee probably would start looking into the appointments soon after the hew congress organizes next Monday. He did not elaborate tin what he said he had heard. The five-member board, named bv President. Truman last November 27 .and now serving under recess appointments, is composed of Doth W. Richardson of Washington, chairman; Peter Campbell Brown of New York; Charles M. LaFollcUe of Virginia; David J. Coddaire of Massachusetts and Miss Kathryn McIIale of Indiana, No action has been taken on the nominations by the senate This means that Mr. Truman will probably have to re-submit 'the names for confirmation after the new congress convenes next week. Thus far there has been little public criticism of the appointments. But some lawmakers have said privately they intend to question particularly the qualifications of LaFollette and Miss McHale for the posts. Richardson, the head of tho government’s loyalty review board, has come in for sharp congressional criticism in the past, and appears headed for more. The board was set up under the so-called McCa r r a n anti-subversives act which congress passed over President Truman’ veto at the last session Its job primarily is to administer the section of the law dealing with the registration of Communist and Communist-front organizations. The board, acting upon a complaint from the attorney general, decides what is a Communist, or Communist -front organization, which are required to register under the law. Its decision is subject to review by the courts. Stanton Griffis Is Ambassador Washington, Dec. 27 — W —President Truman today picked Stanton Griffis to be American ambassador to Spain, thus ending a 15-year snub of Generalissimo’s Franco’s regime. Griffis, G3. and a native of Boston. has previously served as ambassador to Poland. Egypt and Argentina. His appointment to Madrid was forecast a month ago, after signs appeared that America’s diplomatic snubbing of Spain would be ended. Relations have been maintained with Franco's one party government, but not at the ambassadorial level. The United Nations general assembly voted early in November to lift a ban in effect against Spain and permit member nations to send ambassadors to Madrid. Griffis’ new appointment will go to the senate for confirmation when the new congress meets next week. Since 1936, he has been chairman of the board of Paramount Pictures. He also Ik chairman of the board of Madison Square Garden and of Brentano’s book stores. Former Wife Of Remington Talks it got to Russia as soon as possible.” Mrs. Remington said that Remington, then wdrking for the war production bolSed, explained at that meeting that the information was “a formula to make explosives from garbate.” Mrs. Remington said the meetings with Miss Bentley were also an occasion for Ihetr paying dues to the Communist party. She testified that she and Remington met Miss Bentley in the early part of 1942 at a meeting arranged by Joe North, who she said was a Communist party member they had met shortly before thf' war.

S. Attorney Irving Saypol, she said nothing was ever said in her presence about Miss Bentley being a newspaper reporter.

" Operators Want No Price Lid Washington, Dec. 27—W>— Soft coal operators, with a wary eye on the unpredictable John L. Lewis have been trying to persuade price Administrator Michael V. DLsalle to keep the lid off coal prices indefinitely. For one thing, the operators have argued in conferences already held, coal prices are trailing last year’s and profits are down from 1949. despite heavy production and expanding markets. The 25 cents a ton which the last March settlement with union Chief Lewis cost them was absorbed without a price boost, they said. A price freeze would bring with it controls on the miners’ wages, and the operators—who don’t look for trouble this year—are fearful that might stir Lewis to challenge the whole stabilization set-up. Reports circulating through the coal fields have it that Lewis soon will ask for another dollar a day for his miners—now getting $14.75 as base daily pay. It also is rumored that the miners’ boss will seek to Increase the 30 cents a ton now paid into the United Mine Workers welfare and pension fund. Spa Utilities Seek Changes Little Rock.

Russia Reportedly Aided Chinese Paris, Dec. 28 —(U.P.) — A confidential report received by the Prench government says Russia promised the Chinese Communists 100 jet fighter planes if they intervened in Ko-ald if the United States bombed Manchuria. The government was understood to regard the report as unconfirmed but as coming from a realiable source. According to the report, the Russians and the Ch'nese Communists concluded an agreement Nov. 15 covering the Korea situation. Under this agreement, it was said, the Russians promised to contribute jet planes and start at once the training of 1.000 Chinese pilots and 2,000 Chinese paratrooper».
