WEDNESDAY 7, 1950___________________ It. Warren N Baseball Thursday p. m. KWNO-FM TWENTY-TWO PAGES m By Joseph Alsop Paris It is time to realize that the Western defense problem can be successfully solved, if it is en- ergetically tackled. But there is another point that must also be realized. There has been a shock- ing amount of fakery in the West- ern defense effort to date. The simplest possible illustration of the faking that is still being practiced is contained in the Pres- ident's recent request for for foreign arms aid. With- in this-total, a sum of is earmarked as an American con- tribution to the defense of South- east Asia, including Indo-China. Here is fakery which can be easily proven. In the first place, during his Par- is visit, Secretary of State Dean G. Acheson promised the French all-out American aid in the effort Free: Need Not Return To State Hospital at St. Peter to hold Indo-China against the Kremlin's imperialist drive. IN THE SECOND PLACE, the mere initial installment of aid re- quested by the French amounted to nearly worth of equipment and supplies. The long- range French program n o w in Washington comes close to No doubt these French re- quests may be sharply revised downwards, or partly met from American surplus. Yet no one can suppose we can finance all-out aid for the French with what is left over from after Indo- nesia, Burma and other claimant regions in Southeast Asia have al- so taken their shares. In the third place, neither Ache- son's promises nor the requests of the French are what compel us to make a massive effort to save In- do-China. A powerful French army 1- fighting in Indo-China.

For the first time in 32 years. Harry Jacoby is a free man! To the 45-year-old man and his tiny gray-haired mother the news brought joy and tears as they walked from the dis- trict courtroom here Tuesday. Jacoby was told by District Judge Karl Flnkelnburg at about 4 p. m that he did not have to return to the state mental hospital at St Peter as had been expected. A telephone call assured court of- ficials here that Jacoby could be released directly and that a formal notice would be issued this morn- explained.

A searching investigation began today into the crash of a C46 plane in which 28 Puerto Ricans apparently lost their lives. Representatives of the Civil Aer- onautics board and the Puerto Ri- can government flew to San Juan and Charleston. S. C., to open In- i quiries. The destroyer U.S.S.

It was due to dock atj 3 p.m. Eight were known dead and scant hope was held for 20 others aboard the twin-eng.ine plane that went down in the Atlantic .275 miles east northeast of Miami Monday night. The 165-foot cutter Aurora, three coast guard planes and one air force craft continued to search the area for possible survivors, but of- ficial said there was little hope of finding any more. The pilot, co-pilot and steward (were among those rescued from the plane, which was en route! from San Juan to Wilmington, N.j C., with 62 Puerto Rican migrant I workers aboard. j The Civil Aeronautics adminis- tration said the airline operators, the Westair Company, currently are under investigation for alleged violation of safety regulations. A complaint was filed with the CAB in October asking for revoca- tion of the company's operating authority.
