   Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1950, Winona, Minnesota                              WARMER TONIGHT, SNOW SUNDAY VOLUME 49, NO. 303 WINONA, MINNESOTA, SATURDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY TODAY- Lodge-lves Rebellion IrksG.OP. By Joseph and Stewart Alsop Washington The attempt to write a "Republican statement of principles" has now run Its expect- ed course. A rather vacuous docu- ment has been unveiled, and it contains just enough bows In the direction ol the big contributors, which Is was designed to placate, to drive such progressive Republi- cans as Senators Henry Cabot Lodge and Irving Ives into open rebellion. The background ol the Lodge Ives rebellion tells a great deal about the present state of the Re- publican party. The sticking point for Lodge, Ives. and the other Re- publicans who have In effect dis- owned the statement was the clause dealing with civil rights. In the congressional committee which drafted the statement, Lodge repeatedly and futilely pointed out that the civil rights clause (Which carefully avoided specific mention of P.E.P.C., had a distinctly weasel-worded smell. He warned that it would be taken as a repudiation of the 1848 Re- publican platform, and that if it were not altered, he would disown the statment. NEVERTHELESS, Senator Rob- ert A. Taft stiod firm against Lodge, and such members of the cbngresslonal drafting commit- tee as Senators Kenneth Wherry and Owen Brewster and Represen- tatives Joseph Martin and Charles Halleck backed Taft. Lodge was thus beaten in his pleas for a forth' right stand on civil rights. In the senatorial conference which was convoked to consider the statement, Ives and a number of others joined Lodge in revolt. Ives again proposed that the 194S civil rights plank be reaffirmed. In i. show of hands he was backed, significantly, not only by such of the 12 senatorial "young Turks" us were present, but by Martin of Pennsylvania, Ferguson of Michi- gan and others who usually sup- port Taft. Nevertheless Taft again won the day. The meaning of all this is clear. This is no doubt that''Taft others are sincerely convinced that compulsory fair employment legislation is bad legislation. BUT THE BASIC REASON for the weasel-wordedness of the civil rights statement is simply that many big northern industrialists are just as bitterly opposed to F.E.P.C. as any southerner. Men of the Wherry Martin Brew- ster-Halleck stripe are peculiarly responsive to the opinions of big Industrialists. And thus a magnifi- cent opportunity to put the Demo- crats on the spot by all-out Repub- lican support for civil rights was ____ the same pattern held throughout the effort to draft the statement. This effort consisted largely of a running battle between Lodge and most of the other mem- bers of the drafting committee. The anti-Lodge majority found a valu- able ally in novelist Clarence Budlngton Kelland, who was sel- ected by the Republican National Committee to give literary polish to the congressional draft. Kelland is adept at translating lost.

Keech signed the order in a little less than an hour after a presidential fact-finding board reported to Mr. Truman that a resumption of coal mining is Imperative. The Justice department acted on an order from President Truman which declared that continuation of the work stoppage "will imperil the national health and safety."

Airline spokesmen said a powerful air draft tugged John Harris 28- Lodge at least succeeded in toning down some of Kellnnd's more ex- treme effusions, particularly as concerned labor and the tariff, where too flourishing a nostalgia for the dead past was in evidence.

"The passengers remained calm and he added. "The flight was completed without furth- er incident." Harris, of New York city, fell from the plane as it was flying over the vicinity of St. James, N.

McMahon's news conference was cut short after a reporter ask- ed for estimates on the cost of the H-bomb. "I wouldn't tell you if I could" the senator answered. "There is a representative here of a news agency that transmits I say to Russia." The conference was attended by accredited members of the Senate press gallery, including Jean Montgomery, representative of the Soviet news agency, Tass. In another atomic development, Senate Democratic Leader Lucas of Illinois today called for "careful consideration" of proposals for a new study of international control of atomic energy. Lucas said in a speech prepared for broadcast in Illinois that some scientists have asked for a fresh approach to the international atomic control proposals, and that commentators have urged Presi- dent Truman to appoint a group of experts to study the problem. "I believe the time has come to give careful consideration to all these Lucas said, "because they offer us tie chance for anoth- tivilization while we still have time to do so."

(Special) One man was killed and two other ersons 'hen their car skidded off County Trunk E and crashed down a 250- oot embankment early this morn- ing near here. Dead is John Adank, about 70, arm worker who lived near Coch- rane, Wis. He suffered a skull frac- ure. Injured are his younger brother, Christ Adank, 62, and Mrs. Christ 4dank, 57. Both suffered cuts, raises and were report- d in satisfactory condition this morning at St. Joseph's hospital, ircadla. The accident occurred shortly liter midnight as the Adank car, riven, by Mrs. Adank, was traveling .own Irish valley dugway. Apparently going out of control when it skidded on ice, the car flowed through a small snowbank at the left side ol the road, went over a low railing and rolled down the hill. Watch Stopped A watch on John Adank's wrist was stopped at a. m. according a Buffalo county coroner H. F. Stohr from Alma, called to investi- gate along with Henry Zeichert, county traffic officer. He had been thrown 50 feet clear of the wrecked automobile and was killed outright, Stohr said. The other two passengers were also thrown they ate about 11 per cent better than they did before the war. The reasons are these.: If weather conditions are .about normal, food supplies will be a little larger than last year. Employment and income aren't' expected to decline more thanj moderately, If at all, so people; will have about the same amount spend for food as they 1947 eating record of 155 pounds per capita, even if It Is far high- er than the prewar average of 126 pounds a year. More fresh vegetables pected to be available, although fewer onions and less cabbage. Generally speaking there will be around 14 per cent more fresh vegetables than in 1949. There will be fewer chickens and possibly a reduction in milk, ice cream and butter. But there will be more turkeys, and more eggs. Expressed in food values, the nutritionists sum it up this way: You will get about two per cent more of the goods that make en- ergy and about the same amount of the stuff that provides import- ant vitamins. But the nutritionists don't like the milk situation. They said less whole milk and cream is being used for the fifth consecutive year of calcium in the American diet. Calcium is a mineral people everything need for teeth, bones and other body equipment.

Two Waumandee young people, returning to their home and coming flown the same rood, discovered the accident and summoned help. They were Maynard Olson, 20, and Shirley Ann Scheidegger, 17. Olson reportedly noticed car tracks Into the snow bank, indicating thafc a car had gone over the side. He stopped his automobile and walked back to the spot. Extreme Shock Calling out, Olson received a reply from Mrs. Adank. Suffering from extreme shock at the time, Mrs. Adank reportedly told Olson there lad been a "bad accident" and that the "others are The youth said he would get help. Olson and Miss Scheidegger drove to the nearest farm, notified their parents and returned to the scene water resources.

As first outlined two months ago by John O'Donnell, chief fisheries biologist of the department, the wa- tershed project primarily was aim- ed at improving trout fishing con- ditions. However, the commission- ers agreed with the department and representatives of the conser- vation congress that the program concerned the entire aspect of con- serving natural resources. The project proposes overall habitat control within the water- sheds of streams. In addi- nually by bank improvements.
