YAMS DOWN 15 MIG JETS TODAY HOT LUNCH FOR CARMI Gl AT FRONT By Associated Press WASraNGTON-Rep. Wheeler (D-Ga) made his formal argument today for Impeachment of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas and a majority of the hearing subcommittee promptly told him he had failed to make a case. Wheeler offered his resolution immediately after Douglas had iisued a stay order, quickly overruled by the full court, to hold off the electrocution of atom �pies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. The Georgian based him complaint largely on that action but brought In other matters in charges which included "treason" and 'moral turpitude." "I'm afraid that as a layman you have not fully coipprehended the depth of these charges in a legal sense which we lawyers know nnd understand." Chair-House judiciary subcommittee uid. Reps. Walter (D-Pa) and Wilton (D-Tex) made similar comments after Wheeler, a farmer and former school teacher, had �cicnowledged that some of his material was in error, some wai hearsay, and it would take � "liberal" interpretation of the law to make some points stand up. Graham, winding up the brief hearing, asked Wheeler if he felt he had been given a fair hearing and ample opportunity to present his case. "I am completely satisfied," Wheeler said, "and w'll so ex- Sress myself privately and pub-dy." Graham said the subcommittee probably will report to the full judiciary committep Tuesday. In the hearing Graham asked Wheeler if he could cite "any overt act" of a treasonable nature that Douglas had committed. The Georgian replied that to do 80 would require "a rather liberal interpretation" of the laws defining treason. Wheeler said the justice, in public speeches and statements, had expressed i opinions that would give "aid and comfort to the enemy in psychological war-tare." "I belieVL the definition could be stretched to include that," Mid Wheeler. Graham told Wheeler that speeches by Douglas may not have been ethical and then asked "was it treason?" "In my opinion it was," replied Wheeler. "In your opinion, maybe not." Wilson, after remarking that Douglas' action in the Rosenberg case was "rather strange," �aid: "I don't think there are any legal grounds by which this committee could vote impeachment." Wheeler agreed with mem-beri of the committee that I>ouglas had a legal fight to act U he did. -^Wheeler told the committee he had been wrong in linking Douglas with an Oregon divorce cue, laying he had brought the matter up on the basis of a newspaper rep9rt. Arthur Godfrey Taking It Easy i^EESBURG, Va. - Arthur Godfrey settled down on his expansive Northern Virginia estate today to live the life of a country squire for awhile.

"Only by the free use of his veto power and the tightest possible hold over spending during the next two years can Gov. Stratton prevent a financial crisis in the state government," said George E. Mahin, the federation's executive secretary. "Even if a financial crisis can be averted, it appears to be a certainty that the number one 'must pass' bill of the state administration at the 1955 General Assembly will be for a new or increased state tax-^probably at least a 3 per cent sales tax," he added in a statement. The present state sales levy is 2 per cent. , The federation put spending authorizations from the state general revenue fund for the 1953-55 fiscal period, starting Wednesday, at 722 million dollars, and said a liberal estimate of resources to support this spending was "around 700 million." The allotment for the Welfare Department, ^hich runs state mental hospitals, "may prove to be inadequate by millions of dollars to maintain even present service levels," Mahin said. "If there is even a slight turndown in business, the IP AC may be hard put to live within its appropriation," Mahin added. The IPAC handles awards to help the aged, needy, blind, dependent children and permanently disabled.

First CC injections Made Today. By Aftociated Press MONTGOMERY, Ala.-Years of weary trial-and-error research that cost millions of dollars gets the first full-scale tryout here today in a history-making effort to save a stricken city from a polio epidemic, �The first of more than 30,000 youngsters scheduled to be inoculated 'with polio-resisting gamm^ globulin during the next four days trooped to injection stations with anxious parents this morning. The nation's polio fighters hope this unprecedented mass inoculation will not only stop the fierce outbreak, but will also sound the death knell for future unchecked ravages of crippling infantile paralysis viruses. 67 Oallona of Serum The National Foundation for Infantile Parlysis has shipped in 67 gallons of the scarce GG serum together with 30,000 hypodermic needles, 15,000 syringes and stacks of other equipment. The community itself, frightened by the daily climb to 81 polio cases, is tackling the huge inoculation job on a volunteer basis. Three Children Have Died The gamma globulin doesn't give permanent immunity. But experts think the month of protection it does provide will halt the pending epidemic through the worst of the hot weather "polio  season." Doctors don't expect a sudden drop in tlie county's polio rate because it takes about a week for the polio-resisting blood derivative to build up temporary immunity. In a week, however, they expect about an 80 per cent decrease. Went to Jail Over $10 Fine; Now Won't Pay Car Storage By Associated Press MORRISON, III.-Four days in jail failed to convince 80-year-old Miss Anna Pittman that she was wrohg in not paying a $10 fine for driving with an expired license. She remained resolutely defiant. Firmly and with head held high. Miss Piitman, a spinister, walked out of the Whiteside County jail Monday night after four days behind bars. For each day in jail she was credited with $2.50 toward the fine. Her nephew, Walter Pittman, met her. "Where's your car, Aunt^" he asked. "In the garage where the sheriff put it,'^ Miss Pitman replied grimly. "Tliey want me to pay storage charges, and I'm not going to do it. They can keep the car." The car was a 1926 model and getting a litUe decrepit. Walter indicated, though, before he drove off with his aunt toward her Bureau County farm home, that he probably would pay the charges. Miss Pittman was arrested Thursday. The fine was imposed Friday and she promptly affirmed she would rather go to jail than pay anything to the State of Illinois. All state officials are "crooks," she averred. Miss Pittman conceded, too, she still was a little put out about a 1926 condemnation action to build a highway across her farm. Sheriff J. H. Hamilton said Miss Pittman was a good prisoner "who gave us no trouble atH all." The State is out Silicosis in its action against Miss Pittman, the sheriff said. 'The law doesn't require prisoners to work off costs, and Miss Pittman wouldn't pay them," he said. ^ SHOWERS SAVE CROPS IN EAST CENTRAL TEXAS Tropical Storms Promise Relief for West Texas, Oklahoma Drought Areas DALLAS, Tex. - An iplandl sweep of tropical storms today Texas and Oklahoma farm areas for which President Eisenhower made available an eight-million dollar drought disaster fund. Downpours!, as heavy as 6 inches at Baytown, scattered over East and Central Texas yesterday in time to save pastures, cotton, peaches, late com and vegetables in many counties.

COMES TO AID WASHINGTON - Presi-dent Eisenhower today formerly designated 152 drought-stricken counties in Texas and 40 others in Oklahoma as disaster areas. This makes cattlemen and stocianen in those counties eligible to share in the eight million dollars allocated Monday by the President from his emergency fund for drought relief. ___ of plant cover that rain would fall only on sandy wostes. Most of the West Texas wheat crop and much of the cotton is gone. Pastures are crisp and useless. The White House announcement Monday said relief funds would be allocated to 152 counties in Texas and 40 in Oklahoma. Meanwhile, Gov. Edwin Mech-em of New Mexico appealed to President Eisenhower for federal aid in New Mexico's drought crisis. He planned to fly to Washington today. In the Senate, Minority Leader Lyndin Johnson (D-Tex) and 12 other senators introduced a bill to provide money and power to meet disasters such ac the Southwest drought. The measure would authorize government and stockmen at 4 per cent interest. WUI Sunply Feed       V   ^ Secretary of Agriculture Benson, who returned to Washington from a weekend inspection of the Texas drought area, said the first steps in the administration program would be aimed at speeding emergency feed to livestock growers.

By Assoclsttd Press SEOUL-Sabre jet pilots today shot dowi� 15 Communist MIGs and raised their June bag to 74, a record-smashing total runup without the loss of a single Sabre in air combat. "Never has the issue of Sabre versus MIG been so convincingly resolved," said Lt. Gen. S. E. Anderson, Fifth Air Force commander, in a message to his pilou. It was Anderson who put out figures showing that not a single Sabre was shot down by a MIG in June. He said 143 MIGs were shot down in the past 75 days at the cost of one Sabre. That Sabre was lost in May when the Fifth Air Force ran up a 56 to 1 margin. The Sabres closed out June in a blaze of glory. Not only did they smash the monthly record of 63 set last September, but they also erased the old single day mark of 13 set last July 4. The ground war dwindled to mostly prol)es and skirmishes, but the Eighth Army announced that the Communists fired a record-breaking 1^ million, artillery and mortar shells this month. That's more than double Ifie hiirnber of shells fired by Red guns in any previous month of the war. It meant that almost two shells crashed down on Allied linse for every single foot of the 155-mile front-more than four for every Allied soldier on the line. The 36th jet ace of the war emerged from afternoon battles high over North Kdrea. He was Henry Buttleman of Bayside, N. y. He scored his fifth kill. Jabara Bags Two Maj. Gen. Jabara of Wichita, Kan., history's first jet ace, also had a spectacular day. He downed two MIGs to boost his kills to 14 in two combat tours. Jabara now is only two below the all-time jet mark of 16 set by Capt. Joseph McConnel Jr. of Apple Valley, Calif. Col. James K. Johnson of Phoenix, Ariz., bagged his 10th MIG and became the seventK double jet ace. The record-breaking victory came on the first day of good flying weather in nearly a week -a week that gave the Communist infantry a chance to drive forward without serious punishment from Allied air power. 9ee-Saw Battle While ground fighting died on most of the line, a see-saw battle still raged on the slopes of Look-out Mountain in the East. Neither the Reds nor South Korean infantrymen have been able to hold the crest in six days of attacks and counterattacks. The hill is one anchor for the ROKs new front in the Pukhan River sector. The seriousness of the ground war was reflected in last week's estimated enemy casualty figures, which topped all weeks back to that ^f Nov. 17, 1951. The new total for hte week ending June 28 put Red killed, wounded and prisoners at 11,200 Chinese and North Koreans. Of these, 7,500 enemy were killed and 3,700 wounded. While Allied casualties are not released by action or period, but only as isolated numbers from time to time, there is an obvious relation between Red and Allied losses. Arrest "Pork Chop Burglar" By Associated Press BAL'nMORE - An IB-year-old   boy who became known to police as the "pork chop burg-! lar" after a series of meat thefts here wa caught Monday, But it was the dessert intead of the main course that led to his arrest, police said! Officers investigating a lunchroom where meat had been stolen found two paper bags stuffed with candy that had been abandoned in the rear of the store. They waited for the burglar's "sweet tooth" to bring him back. Soon they saw a figure slink Into tlie building, they told Magistrate WUliam F. Uukaitis. They pounced on him. The defendant, Robert Browm, was ordered held in $2,500 bail on burglary charges. Police said they found 36 pounds <^ meat stored in Brown's refrigerator at his home. By Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, 111. - Gov. Stratton   Tuesday   signed   32 more bills passed by the legislature and vetoed three. One of the vetoed bills would have extended to parochial schools the privilege now enjoyed by public schools of obtaining a state license for a school bus at the nominal rate of $2. Stratton said he feared the bill mi^ht cast a shadow over the legality of provisions of previously signed legislation cutting back truck and bus license fees. A second measure disapproved by the governor would have given another two years' life to the Illinois Mining Investigation Commission, which recommends changes in the state mining laws. Stratton said the need for the agency has passed, "and any future services can be performed by the department of mines and minerals." Also vetoed was a $6,000 appropriation to the superintendent of public instruction to administer a new law requiring public school teachers to pass a test on constitutional principles before they can get teaching certificates renewed. The veto message said the state school chief can meet expenses involved from other funds at his disposal. Among measures signed into law were tliose whicli: Appropriate $4,790,500 in state and federal funds to the University of Illinois trustees for expenses incident to services for crippled children. Continue for another two years the Mississippi Scenic Parkway Commission and set aside $10,000 for its expenses. Provide $200,0(� for a water and sewer system and o.ther improvements at Dixon Springs State Park. Appropriate $220,000 for a mile of pavement to connect U. S. Route 30 near Sterling and Rock Falls. Transfer an experimental c^al processing plant in Chicago from control of the Illinois Coal Products Commission to the State Mines and Minerals Department, and provide $150,00 for it operation. Appropriate $25,000 for � rehabilitation of the old Market Houe at Galena. Change the name of the Lincoln State School ond Colony to the Lincoln State School, and that of the Dixon State Hospital to the Dixon State School. Appropriate $15,000 for equipment and improvements at New Salem State Park. Provide for the selection of election judges and clerks fr<�n certified lists submitted by county chbirmen, and fix their terms at two years instead of one. Make 'the abandonment of a child under 14 a felony. Allow special charter school districts operating, grades 1 to 12 which reorganize under the general school laws to continue to levy taxes at a rate not to exceed the rate at which taxes last were actually extended by the special charter district SB396. Provide that the annual tax authorized for acquisition and maintenance on a city hospital shall be in addition to the amount authorized to be levied SB27^""^*' hospital purposes. 'Three bills revising the state mine safety code also received Stratton's enacting signature.

Elaine Simpson, 41, who federal authorities said operated three houses of prostitution in Peoria, was accused of owing taxes of $207,644 on total income of $381,433 for 1946 through 1950. U. S. District Atty. John B. Stoddart told reporters the sums listed in the indictment against Tappero covered income he received from slot machines or investments made from slot machine earnings. Stoddart said Tappero at one time had about 35 slot machines operating in Christian County and that 26 ot his machines were confiscated in state police raids early this month. The indictment charged he reported in a joint return for him a/id his wife income of $52,711 and paid taxes of $12,452 when the income actually was $112,-220 and taxes were $32,999. Assistant U. S. Attys. Marks Alexander and Robert Hecken-kamp said the Simpson woman obtained the bulk of her income from houses of ill fame and from real estate investments. Alexander said she operated three houses with five or six girls in each place. For the five years involved, the indictment said, she filed income totalling $30,539 and paid taxes of $5,586. Boy Friend Got IVfoney Alexander said most of Miss Simpson's money went to a boy friend ""who didn't do anything as far as we could find out." ,'Miss Simpson also is known as Pam Miller.

He was accompanied by his Russian-bom wife and two small daughters. On the same plane' with the Giimores were another American and his Russian wife, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Tucker,^ and Mrs. Ethel Balashova, a U. S. citizen, and her two daughters by a Russian father. The Soviet Union gav� Mrs. Gilmore; Mrs. Tucker and the Balashova children permission to leave early this month in the first such' Russian action in recent years. Subsequently the Soviet government announced it would give exit visas to four cans living in Moscow. Tucker, whose father lives in Kansas City, has been with the U. S. Embassy here since May, 1944. He and his wife were married in 1946. Mrs. Balashova's legal residence is Los Angeles, where her thother, Mrs. Louis Babin, lives.

Mrs. Gihnore and the corres- By AssocUted Press SEtMJL-The North Korean Red radio today promptly and coldly rejected the U. N. command offer to sign an armistice now on terms already agreed upon at Panmunjom. Shortly after. President Eisenhower's special emissary to Sotfth Korea conceded that President Syngman Rhee also persisted in his refusal to accept the truce. Walter S. Robertson, assistant secretary of state for Far East-em affairs, told reporters after his fifth secret session wi'vh Rhee; "President Rhee and 1 are trying to work out a solution acceptable to our two governments and, at the same time, sacrifice the principles of neither." Robertson said he wouM meet again with Rhee 'Wtdnesd^.. Cffitonimhit reaction to U." NT Command Mark Clark's proposal for a truce now-irrespeo-five of Rhee's opposition - was swift. The broadcast from Pyongyang, North Korean capital, charged that Clark's letter to Communist leaders Monday lacked "sincerity" and was "in-consistant" with the facts. . It insisted there had been "connivance" between the UNC and South Keren in Rhee's order releasing more than 27,000 anti-Communist North Korean war prisoners since June 18. Reds See No Guarantee Pyongyang added that C3ark's letter gave "no guarantee" on the future conduct of the South Korean government and that, therefore, the Communists could not accept it. It also demanded again the recapture of all escaped prisoners. Clark had reminded the Red high command and the Panmunjom negotiatioiui were for a military armistice and that while he doesn't control the South Korean government he does command its amy. The U. N. �onunander promised to do his best to get Rhee's cooperation and pledged his command to enforce the teima of a truce. A broadcast monitoried in London said that Rhee has been plotting with the Chinese Na-tionalisU to free Chinese POWs. The Allies hold nearly 20,000 Chinese, 14,200 of whom hitve said they would resist being returned to Red rule. About 100 broke out of a U. N. camp near Pusan last week, but were rounded up.
