Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Partly Cloucfy And Warmer Tonight, Saturday Be a Goodfellow VOLUME 52, NO. 241 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, FRIDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 28, 1952 TWENTY-TWO PAOIS Good Fellows Start Drive to Help 800 Winona Boys, Girls The 1952 Winona Goodfellows campaign begins to- day. Every year at this time the Goodfellows workers ask for money contributions to outfit Winona's needy children articles of clothing -the things they must have to keep warm and dry this winter. The items like new underwear, stockings, shoes, overshoes, mittens, coats and' snowsuits are fitted right on the children in Winona clothing- stores. The clothes are practical, durable and in some cases the only gifts the child receives for Christmas. To give these underprivileged youngsters a Christmaj is the objective of the Goodfellows. Last year the Goodfellows raised Since that sum had to be apportioned among nearly 700 children, they received only the articles they needed most. This year it is estimated that between 800 and 900 Winona boys and girls will need Goodfellows help. This is more than ever before. This estimate was determined from a file containing the names, ages and addresses of Winona's underprivileged children, prepared by the Winona Council of Social Agencies, a .newly formed organization. The names were obtained from Winona's public and parochial school teachers, city and county welfare departments and the Winona organiza- tions which do welfare work at Christinas tme. The Council's Christmas list was formed to eliminate duplication of giving among these groups and to see that no one who really needs help is overlooked. All cases are investigated to determine whether or not a child is actually in need. Whan the Goodfellows put warm coat on a youngster's back, iturdy shoes on his feet and overshoes for protection, they know the child is on his way to a healthier, merrier Christmas. For 42 since the Goodfellows have been a part of the Winona Christmas spirit. It is the organization that fills the gap for those who wish to make some needy child happy in memory of the Christ Child. It turns cold dollars into warm to btmdle up Winona's needy children, making Christmas a memorable event. The plan is simple. Just put a one-, five-, ten- or hundred-dollar bill in an envelope. Bring it to The Republican-Herald. Make checks payable to "The Goodfellows." Your contribution will be published in the Goodfellows column. Goodfellows workers are experienced buyers. They get discounts from the store. There is no waste. The full dollar you give goes into the gift. The shoes fit, the clothes fit and there are no unnecessary Tacoma Air Crash Kills 36 Mrs, Ivy Baker Priest of Bountiful, Utah, leaves the headquarters of President- elect Eisenhower in New York after announcement that' she had been named treasurer of the United States.

The United Nations pushed toward a vote today on India's Communist- condemned plan for ending the Ko- rean War. With U. S. support pledged, its adoption in the face of bitter Soviet bloc opposition was expected by an overwhelming majority. Despite the rejection by Peiping, Moscow and Pyongyang, tiie In- dian compromise prisoner of war resolution was being shoved through by the non-Communist na- tions to place responsibility for throwing down a Korean peace squarely on the shoulders of the Reds. India's V. K. Krishna Menon, who drafted and introduced the resolution, was to give his final in another attempt to overcome the Commu- nist the general Assembly's Political Committee this afternoon. Eager for Vote Committee Chairman Joao Car- los Muniz of Brazil told the dele- ber of subjects, and the statement j gates yesterday he was eager said the union members will sup- port Eisenhower in his "construct- ive endeavors."

Carey, secretary-treasurer of the CIO, and Allan S. Haywood, executive vice president of the CIO. The statement said: "We have had a most pleasant to have a" vote on the Indian resolu- tion during today's session as soon as Menon speaks.

So the sentiment of welcome here is a strong and stirring thing." For a fourth straight day, Seoul bubbled with anticipation. More 1 be left unchanged. Labor Law Changes Proposed by Taft WASHINGTON Taft of Ohio is planning some changes next year in the long-disputed labor-management relations law that bears his name. Two of the amendments are expected to meet specific objections voiced to the Taft-Hartley law by President-elect Eisenhower._______ An aide to the Ohio Republican said today that considerable draft- ing work already has been done on the amendments. Many of them will be similar to the 28 changes which passed the Senate in 1949 but stalled in the House. Taft says the 1943 amend- ments died because the- unions wanted repeal or nothing and felt repeal had a chance under a Dem- ocratic administration. He is said to believe that the unions will be more co-operative in the 1953 ses- sion, which will be Republican- controlled. Despite his willingness to re- write portions of the law, Taft is insistent that its basic principles banners than ever splashed across buildings and the gutted skeletons j as the states.

The Thanksgiving American Loyal to Program "The CIO, of course, remains loyal to its program, which calls for increasing living standards, controlling inflation, repeal of anti- labor legislation, promoting needed welfare measures for the people, improving social security, and strengthening our structure of civil rights and civil liberties, while re- sisting totalitarian aggression and inflation. Amendments Offered Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Vishinsky also has introduced amendments to the Indian resolu- tion. 'Western delegates charged yesterday they only transformed it into Russia's own demand that all prisoners must be forced to go home whether they want to or not. The debate became increasingly vitriolic yesterday when Frar.ce, Australia, Canada and New Zea- land accused the Russians of wish- ing to prolong the war in Korea and charged that Vishinsky had tried to trick the Assembly into perverting the sense of the Indian resolution, Vishinsky scathingly replied that survey covers only deaths from I ards, to attack labor, or to obstruct As it has in the past, the CIO tnese delegates, by attacking him will give to those .members personally, had taken the position of Congress who work for these Of "lap dogs barking at an ele- objectives; and as we told Gen.

While scattered fires still rnarXed the scene of the post-holiday trag- edy, Deputy Pierce County Coroner Larry Amundsen said 36 were dead or missing. The plane carried servicemen and dependents. The bodies of four babies were among those found scattered at the scene of the dis- aster. At least two witnesses said the plane was afire as it "whooshed" down to a tree-flanked field about a mile from its destination at Mc- Chord air force base. Capt. Jack Easley, public infor- mation officer at McChord, said reports indicated the plane struck a tree while coming in through the heavy fog for a ground-control approach landing. All but a section of the tail was destroyed in the resulting fire and explosion. Bodies were scattered over 200 feet from the wreckage. The crash added to the toll of a disastrous three weeks for mili- tary transport aviation around the North Pacific rim. If the death toll stands at 36 in today's crash, it makes a total of 198 dead or presumed dead along the arc from Korea to Alaska to McChord and Montana. The total includes 91 on three big transports in Alaska, 55 in two Korea crashes, eight in Montana and eight in a Canadian crash on Vancouver Is- land. McChord base reported the trans- port, a C54, was circling for an approach to the field when the disaster struck.
