Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 28, 1952, Mason City, Iowa 34 Nov 27 1952 CHy GlthcCiititt Maitm CMy Reds Plan to Weasel In on Japanese By LEONARD FlIRMAN United Press Stiff Correspondent TOKYO los ing strength as an open party in Japan apparently are preparing to bore from within One of the most influential Com munistline thinkers in Japan pre dicts the Japanese Communist party will abandon violent revolu tionary tactics Instead they would join forces with other leftwing par liamentary groups against the pro American conservative government and American colonialism Prof Ikuo Oyama of Waseda University indicated that was the way the Reds shut out of the next Diets powerful house of represen tatives without a single seat for the first time since 1945 would try to weaken Japans alignment with the West and further Russias new peace offensive toward Japan His statements reflected the new shift in Communist strategy dic tated by Josef Stalin Oct 14 and hinted earlier in a reported letter from the former Japanese Com munist boss Kyuichi Tokuda now in Moscow Oyama who found haven in the United States from the Japanese ultranationalists during the Pa cific War made his statement in an interview with the United Press House Seats Lost The Communists lost ail 22 seals they had in the last lower house in the Oct 1 general elections they still retain three seats in the house of councillors Oyamas hope is that the Reds will be able to form a common front with the right and leftwing Socialists and the Communistline FarmLabor party against a lib eral government Together such a front would con trol 120 seats in the 406member lower house and 69 in the 250man house of councillors if it is rea lized Actually however the right Socialists arc closer to the con servative line than to leftSocial ists and there is as little chance of such u lineup us a merger be tween the liberals and the labor iles inEngland Has Influence Oyama who wields great influ ence over Japanese university stu dents suys he is not a Communist but uses the first person we when he talks about them lie was awarded the Stalin in ternational peace prize in 1951 but was refused a passport to go to Moscow to accept the award He admitted Communist vio lence had been responsible for their debacle at the polls on Oct 1 He added We do not apologize for the violence because we de fended ourselves against the po lice He compared the May Day in cident in Tokyo where thousands of Japanese police and Commu nists clashed in the imperial palace grounds with the action of the French resistance groups He said it is a Japanese edition of the French resistance under the Ger mans 400000 to Attend Shakespeare Fete LONDON W Some 400000 vis itors are expected at the corona

She molds and Wows a hot mixture of sugar and water into almost anything from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to a gingerbread house One phase of sugar art the youthful Cathy explains is as much a part of the Swiss tradition as cheese and yodeling That is the one of working with sugar and al mond paste a pliable puttylike substance known as marzipan The other phase of sugar art that of working with the boiling hot syrup is a postwar development Taught In Schools Its a technique developed by a German she said its now be ing taught in at least two art schools in Switzerland As far as Catherine can deter she is the only American woman making a freelance career of sugar art She cooks sugar and water to gether the proportions and the cooking time are her and then in much the same way a glass blower works she blows and molds the sugar mixture to any form she desires Her first wonk now her good luck a miniature of a monk The body was blown from the sugar and water but the robe the belt the headdress and details were added later from mar zipan which can be colored almost any shade Miss Wortman decided on her unusual career while she was on a European vacation with her fam ily in 1948 I kept seeing those little candy figures in every shop window she said They told me there was a good school for learning the art in Basle but no women ever had been admitted Further Study I came home but after much letter writing back and forth across the Atlantic the school finally ad mitted me After Basle she studied further at Lucerne So far her sugar art has been mostly for commercial cooking pages of maga zines for displays by food com panics She made a gingerbread house for a childrens book display by the New York Public Library and then sat by proudly while children gob bled it to the last gum drop of the roof the last sugar cube of the chimney the lasl cookie tree The sugar artist said everything about her unusual career is fun but the molding of the hot sugar and water You have to have it almost boil ing she said When I first start ct I used to get blisters on my hands Now theyre tougher bul they say I cant be fingerprinted The whorls on my fingers are scorched off

vith a book questioning the saint iness of the nations popular eroine Joan of Arc The controversy was stirred by ean Grimod historian who in his jook Was Joan of Arc Burned laimed she was not burned at the take by the British in 1431 but vas allowed to escape He claims married an obscure he later lobleman Basing his work on evidence un overed he claims during study if early archives Grimod caused a furore among Catholichistorians vith such surprising allegations as 1 The Maid of Orleans pre ented as a child of poor parents vas in fact an illogitiniate child f the Duke of Orleans brother of Charles VII and Isabeau of Bava ia adopted by the Arc family 2 She was not burned by the British but was allowed to escape and a woman sentenced for sor cery died in her place 3 Joan returned to Lorraine and married an obscure noble man Scoffs at Book Grimods book is not worth anybodys attention and is based on no historic evidence Jesuit Father Doncoeur who is consid ered an authority on Joan of Arcs listory said The book is full of enormous errors said Doncoeur who acted as historical advisor during the filming of the Joan of Arc movie starring Ingrid Bergman Lucien Fabre winner of the Prix Goncount literary prize and author of The Life of Joan of Arc said Grimods book pro vided interesting reading but the arguments failed to convince him Grimod claimed that Joans ori in is unmistakably demonstratcc Dy her coat of arms featuring the same two lilies and crown as tha1 ef the former royal family The only exception is a bar running across the shield the bar sinis which Grimod said is a sign of illegitimate origin During a meeting with Charles VII at the Chinon Chateau Joan who commanded French troops against the British invaders re vealed her origin to the king the author said Says Witch Was Burned He claimed the British who cap lured and tried her knew who she was and Joan mysteriously disap pea red for five years which she probably spent in England The women

chronicle o the Dean of Saint Thibaud o Metz dated Nov 7 1436 which reads in part We Robert of Ar moises and Joan Maiden o France my spouse etc As further evidence to prove hi case Grimod lists old

year before the lellcat raids in Korea the British overnment cooperated with the Australian government in the pro duction and testing of guided mis iles at the Woomera rocket range n the stony heart of Australia Enveloped in secrecy nothing of he work of the two governments at Woomera was known until the of modest details of the pilotless craft It can be used either as a target or bombing plane The aircraft is fitted with a powerful Adder turbojet engine specially designed and manufac ured by the ArmstrongSiddely Co of Great Britain Although the engine is only 27 nches in diameter it produces errific thrust giving Ae aircraft fast rateof climb and high speed at great altitudes Only 22 Feet Long The government aircraft factory and Australian radio manufac urers have developed special mo bile launching gear and telemeter ng equipment for handling the plane The aircrafts fuselage is only 22 feet long and its wingspan is 20 feet Its performance details lave not been revealed but it can easily outrange the ISO miles flown by the robot Hellcats The rapid development of a fleet of the pilotless jets is expected to result from the recent visit to Australia of Sir Harry Garner and Sir Alec Coryton of British ministry of supply and Dr L W J Newman chief engineer of the ArmstrongWhitworth Aircraft Co of England The designers o the Australian made robot jet believe it is the forerunner of fleets of pilotless planes capable of wiping out en emy industrial complexes and in vasion fleets They also believe it could be used tactically Toy Railroad Gains Favor as Home Hobby NEW YORK UP If your son should ask for a reefer for Chirst mas dont send for the narcotic squad Its an abbrevation of a more reputable word He will simply be indicating that he wants a refrigerator car for his railroad according to Louis H Hertz an adult authority in the field of model railroading There was a time Hertzsaid when grown men pretended they were buying toy trains for their sons when actually they wanted them for themselves Now they walk right in and order openly The kid is lucky if he is allowed in the cellar while his father is oper ating his elaborate layout com plete down to miniature stations with animated commuters that actually board the trains Advice Offered Forefathers who are buying their first electric train this Christmas their sons or for themselves had this advice Get a good basic outfit Since miniature railroading is a long term hobby plan carefully the kind of railroad you want not just for Christmas but for years to come Start modestly with a single train set and invest the rest of your budget in extra track and switches Track has a habit of getting very scarce right after Christmas and the natural expansion of your home railroad will be curtailed if you have not stocked up on extra pieces of straight and curved A permanent layout is general ly preferable If you are pressed for space mount the track on a large section of plywood which you can stick in a closet or even under a bed when not in use Most important of all if you are a no vice tinplater read the directions before you run the trains Todays electric trains are rugged but their complicated mechanisms do re quire understanding andcare Hobby Growing Fast Hertz author of the recently published New Roads to Adven ture in Model Railroading and seven other books on the subject declares that scalemodel rail roading has become the fastest growing hobby in the United States The English once led the world m this field he said but now were ahead of everyone The Ger mans who have always made many toy trains have never been especially interested in operating them The French enjoy scale model trains and Japan is mad about them but it is in America that the hobby has really taken hold There are half a dozen maga zines devoted to model trains now and even a show called nationwide television The American Flyer Boys Railroad Club Although Hertz has one of the largest single collections of his torical models in the world he does not have a working train lay out at all Ive installed many model turn pikes for friends he explained but never had time to build one for myself Would Reduce Age for Voting PHILADELPHIA Guy K Bard thinks the voting age should be lowered because young men and women of today have far greater political knowledge than their parents or grandparents when they were young There are in this country to day the judge said influential leaders who prate of their confi dence in the capacity of the rising generation yet they oppose every attempt to lower the voting age to 18 years CIRCLES ELECT six sewing circles of Our Saviors Lutheran Church have elected the two officers presi dent and secretarytreasurer who will serve each circle
