Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Cloudy Tonight And Thursday; Colder Tonight VOLUME 52, NO. 251 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, WEDNESDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 10, 1952 Be a Goodfellow TWENTY-FOUR PAGES Boy Killed, Bro Hurt Critically Ike Will Hear Mac Arthur Plan By DON WHITEHEAD ABOARD USS HELENA, En Route to Hawaii Ui elect Dwight Eisenhower is willing to hear any plan his old com- mander, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, may have for ending the Korean War. An exchange of messages, an- nounced yesterday aboard this heavy crusier carrying the Presi- dent-elect and members of his pro- jected administration back to the U. S., cleared the way for a meet- ing between Eisenhower and Mac- Arthur. It also appeared to dissipate whatever coolness had developed between the two former chiefs of staff during the presidential cam- paign, when MacArthur supported Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio for the GOP nomination. "I am looking forward to in- formal meetings in which my as- sociates and I may obtain the full benefit of your thinking and ex- perience" on Korea and the .Far TODAY Gain For United Europe By JOSEPH ALSOP LUXEMBOURG A lot of Americans will be surprised to hear that there is something more interesting, exciting and hopeful here in Luxembourg than Mrs. Perle Mesta. Yet Qne of. Luxen> bourg's bleak midtown office build- ings in fact shelters the germ of a European Union. Its name, The High Authority of the European Coal and Steel Com- munity, is strikingly uninspiring. But it is presided over by one of the few truly creative ideamen of our time, Jean Monnet, who has a special knack for transforming ambitious dreams into vital real- ities. And Monnet and his German, Belgian, Italian and Dutch co- workers' are not only convinced that their Coal and Steel Commu- nity will succeed, they also pre- dict that it will prove only a first installment of a larger community of Europe. Support As this reporter inquired into the workings of the new supranational authority, he could not help re- membering the day when he first heard of the scheme from John J. McCloy, more than two years ago in London. That same afternoon, a high official of the British Foreign Office, who had been taken by sur- prise, angrily denounced "This new trick of Jean Monnel's." The ground traversed since then was nicely measured by the future Brit- ish Ambassador to Washington, Sir thur's message said, "My best to you, Ike, as always." Eisenhower's message to Mac- Arthur said: "Have just received aboard the USS Helena excerpts of your speech before NAM and am grat- ified by your continued interest in the Korean War which so vitally Roger Makins, I the United States and our told Monnet that the Foreign Office allies. had decided to deal with the high Nn East, Eisenhower radioed MacAr- thur Sunday. MacArthur replied on Monday: "I am grateful for your interest in my .views. "A successful solution might well become the key to peace in the world." The exchange followed MacAr- thur's speech Friday, when he told the National Association of Manufacturers in New York that "there is a clear and definite sol- ution to the Korean Conflict" with- out unduly increasing casualties or furthering the risk of world war. MacArthur implied then a will- ingness to present his views to Eisenhower. Eisenhower quickly sent a radio- gram to MacArthur saying he and his advisers were in the process of "outlining a future program" aimed at ultimate peace in Korea. He said he wanted MacArthur's views. May Heal Brtach This exchange of messages ap- peared to be more than the Pres- ident-elect asking for MacArthur's Korean peace plan. It seemed on this ship that it was a diplomatic i move by Eisenhower to heal the j breach and give his administration the benefit of MacArthur's long experience in dealing with Far East matters. MacArthur said: "This is the first time that the slightest official interest in my counsel has been evidenced since my This appeared to be a rap by the five-star general at President Truman, who fired him on April 10, 1951, as Allied commander in the Far East because he was un- able to give his wholehearted sup- port" to U. S. and U. N. policies. The slap apparently was directed also at those in Truman's admin- istration who have dealt with Far East policy. It was noted too that MacAr- Thls A Cleveland police photo of gunman Clarence 0, Sims, wounded today in New York in a gun battle in which three pedestrians and three policemen were injured. (AP Wirephoto to The Republican- Herald) 7 Wounded In New York Gun Fight 'Out of Town' NEW YORK Doug- las MacArthur was "out of town" today but bis office said it knew nothing of speculation that he might be en route West for a conference with Presi- dent-elect Eisenhower. The speculation arose after Eisenhower in a radio message to MacArthur expressed inter- est in learning the former Far East Commander's views on ending the Korean war. NEW YORK men were shot down today as a swaggering Cleveland gunman fought a furious running gun battle with police through the Times Square area. The Negro gunman, Clarence 0. Sims finally spun to the pavement, badly wounded by a coolly-firing patrolman, just as he was about to make his getaway. Three police- men were seriously wounded. Three passers-by, frantically h un t i n g cover in the hail of bullets, were nicked. Police said Sims 'has triggered dozens of holdups in the New York area during the past year. Cleve- land police want him on an armed robbery charge. He told police here he heads the "Shotgun gang" there. One of his pals was arrested in the melee that made Eighth ave- nue as dangerous for a .while as a rampaging town on a Saturday night. The shooting started when Sims pulled a .45 pistol and fired at one of several policemen attracted to an argument between a Negro and a white man in an Eighth avenue bar near 42nd street. Police said Sims and a com- panion had planned to rob the bar where the fight occurred. At first police believed Sims and his com- panion had planned to rescue the Negro and white man who were arrested as they wrestled on the ground.

(AP Wirephoto to The Republican-Herald) authority "As a sovereign power. What, then, is this novel com- munity of European coal and steel, which may. portend so much? In brief, the six participating nations, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg, have placed their coal and steel re- sources in a common or community. To manage these re- sources, they have also set up what amounts to a European govern- ment in High Au- thority, which is the executive branch; an Assembly composed of members elected by the six par- liaments, which is the legislative branch; and a High Court, which is the judicial branch. how This European government in j miniature has extremely broad Naturally I and my associates in the new administration, particu- larly the secretaries of state and defense, are vitally concerned about Korea and the Far East. "It will aim, of course, at ul- timate peace in that section of the world. "I appreciate your announced readiness to discuss these matters with me and assure you I am look- ing forward to informal meetings in which my associates and I may obtain the full benefit of your thinking and experience. With per- sonal regard. "Eisenhower." And here is the answering radio- gram from MacArthur to Eisen- Army to Cut Medium Tank levy taxes on European coal and steel output, for exam- ple. By treaty, it is net impeded in the exercise of these powers by the national governments belong- ing to the pool. And as Jean Mon net is fond of pointing out, all of- ficials joining any branch of the new European government must first swear, in their oath of office, to think and act as Europeans, rather than as Frenchmen, Ger- mans or whatever they may be. Aim Quite -Simple The aim of this complex design is really quite simple. The coal and steel industries of Europe are primarily organized to supply lim- ited and highly protected national markets. By this form of organiza- tion, they have got all the usual benefits, such as more efficient mass productivity, which go with an industrial market of American dimensions. What may be accomplished by opening a truly European market for coal and steel, is clearly im- plied by the figures. America, with (Continued on Page TO, Column 4) ALSO PS 'For Ike.

MacArtlHir's proposals 20 months ago included bombing of Red Chi- nese bases in Manchuria, block- ading the Red China coast and amphibious landings on the China mainland by Nationalist forces from Formosa. By ELTON C. FAY WASHINGTON tf) The Army said today it plans to' cut back production of medium tanks about 45 per cent from the original goal set for the spring of 1954. An Army spokesman said the move to level off production means "no reduction in the total amount of equipment being purchased" Navy Planes Smash Red Supply Targets By SAM SUMMERLIN SEOUL S. Navy warplanes smashed four big Commu- nist rail and supply targets on the doorstep of Manchuria Tuesday in the biggest seaborne raid of the, Korean war. One of the strikes carried American planes on their northernmost raid of the war, to the limits of a Korean strip that juts up into Manchuria and is surrounded on three sides by that Chinese Red province. It also carried the Navy planes within 12 miles of-Soviet Siberia and almost as far north as the Russian port of Vladivostok, which lies to the east. Targets were Honyung, Musan, Najin and Hyesanjin. Panther jets, Sky Raiders and Corsairs from the carriers Oris- kany, Bon Homme Richard and Essex destroyed round housas, turntables, locomotives, box cars, buildings and supplies. Raging Fires Set Honyung, the northernmost tar- get, is within a few hundred yards of the Manchurian border and is the port of entry to Korea for the major East Coast rail lines. Navy pilots said the vital rail Musan is southwest of Honyung. Najin is on the Sea of Japan. Hye- sanjin is inland, southwest of Musan. The Navy listed this toll: Destroyed Eight rail repair shops, three locomotives, 30 box cars, seven buildings, 500 yards of tracks and six trucks. Damaged locomotives, but rather a rescheduling of de-1 trunk there was wiped out and Hon- liveries.

The spokesman said the new schedule of production will go into effect at the start of the next fis- cal l, 1953. Secretary of Defense Lovett had indicated last September that he thought the time was approaching when the production of some hard goods, including tanks, might be leveled off to what he described as a "sustaining rate." Armored Shorts Ordered for Gl's WASHINGTON Iff) Army said today it is ordering armored shorts for its troops in Korea. Together with the armored vest the two garments will give protec- tion to the entire torso. The Army said the armored shorts resemble a prize fighter's trunks and weigh only four pounds. The vest weighs eight pounds. Specifically designed to. protect ie hips, abdomen and groin, the garment has been tentatively desig- nated as "armor, lower torso." 18 buildings, five two tank cars, 191 trucks, one locomotive shop and j one round house. i Weather Bad The commander of Task Force 7? said, "The. enemy has suffered heavy damage." He messaged "Well done" to his pilots. The Navy planes roared out in 352 individual flights. The Far East Air Forces sent Japan-based B29 Superforts within five miles of the great Suiho power reservnir on the Yalu River in an- other attack Tuesday.night. Bad weather grounded most planes Wednesday. One of the year's major lulls clung to the ground front. The Chinese and North Korean armies held their fire except for brief skirmishes. The Eighth Army reported U. N. ground forces killed, wounded or captured Red soldiers last week. Judge Refuses Execution Stay For Rosenbergs NEW YORK Federal judge refused today to stay the execu- tions of convicted atom spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg who are scheduled1 to die at Sing Sing prison the week of Jan. 11. Federal Judge Sylvester J. Ryan, in denying a motion to stay their execution, also denied another mo- tion by their attorneys to have their convictions set aside. Then Judge Ryan denied an ap- plication by their co-defendant, Morton Sobell, to have his 30-year prison sentence set aside on con- stitutional grounds. Sobell recently was removed to Alcateaz prison. All three were convicted on March 29, 1951, of conspiring with a former Soviet vice-consul and others to transmit atomic secrets to the Soviet Union between 1944 and 1950. Explosion Suits Total Million ST. PAUL W) Suits seeking more than 1 million dollars were filed in Ramsey County-District Court Tuesday by five St. Paal persons hurt in an explosion at Minnesota Mining and Manufactur- ing Co. 8, 1953. The five suits are against Phil- lips Petroleum Co. and Northwest Hydrogas Co., New Brighton. They charge the petroleum firm furn- ished faulty equipment to 3-M and that the New Brighton company delivered the equipment. Fifteen persons died as a re- sult -of the blast which heavily damaged one of the 3-M factory buildings. Officer Trapped 2 Gl's Selling Jet Secrets Investigation Details Disclosed For First Time By STAN CARTER TOKYO Air Force lieu- tenant who played along brought about the arrest of two sergeants on charges of trying to sell U. S. Sabre jet secrets. Details of the investigation arid the September arrests of the two, S. Sgt. Guiseppe Cascio, 34, and S. Sgt. John P. Jones, 22, were disclosed today for the first time in records made available to The Associated Press by reliable sour- ces who cannot be named. They disclosed: Lt. William L. Murphy of Upper Darby, Pa., pretended to plot with the sergeants while tape recordings were made. The sergeants were arrested before they made contact with a Communist agent and the secret information was saved. Cascio is under mental observa- tion in Tokyo, pending a decision whether he will be tried by a court- martial. The maximum penalty is life imprisonment if convicted. Jones has been declared insane and returned to the U. S. Official records disclosed that Air Force Office of Special Inves- tigations (OSI) agents knew a se- cret document giving data about the F86E type Sabre jet was going to be stolen before it ever was taken. The document was genuine. The Air Force made no attempt to take it. Cascio, whom OSI agents be- lieved to be the originator of the plot, found nobody to buy the se- cret-document. Cascio is charged also with 16 counts of illegal dealing in worth of military payment certifi- cates used by military personnel in Japan and Korea. It was suspicion of black mar- keting which got the OSI on his trail. Murphy was chief of the Air Force postoffice in Taegu, Korea. OSI records show Cascio ap- proached Murphy and offered to split profits if Murphy would help him funnel negotiable money or- ders out Korea. Murphy went to the OSI and was told to "play along with him." Car Injures Boys In Front of Home An 8-year-old Winona youngster was killed and his younger brother critically injured late Tuesday afternoon when they were struck by an automobile nearly in front of their home on East Broadway. The accident victims were: Frederick Rose, 8, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Rose, 667 E. Broadway who suffered head and internal injuries in the mishap and was dead on arrival at the Winona Air Force Lieutenant Wil- liam L. Murphy of Upper Dar- by, Pa., above, brought about the arrest of two sergeants on the charge of trying to sell U. S. Sabre Jet secrets by pre- tending to plot with them while tape recordings were made. The staff sergeants, Guiseppe Cascio and John P. Jones, were arrested before they made contact with a Communist agent. (AP Wirephoto to The Republican-Herald) WEATHER FEDERAL FORECAST Winona and1 Vicinity Mostly cloudy tonight and Thursday.

Judd Sees Good Ike Relations With Congress WASHINGTON (Si President- elect Eisenhower should have ex- cellent relations with Congress "lor a long Rep. Judd (R-Minn) said today. "I believe Gen. Eisenhower will have Congress with him longer than the so-called 'honeymoon' per- Judd told a reporter. As far as Republican members of Congress are concerned, Judd said, the Nov. 4 election "showed that Gen. Eisenhower was far stronger with the people than the Republican party was." As a result, the Minnesotan ad- ded, he believes that members of the GOP will go along with the programs that the new president will recommend after he assumes office Jan. 20. Judd said that the fact that the Republicans hold only a slim ma- j jority in both the Senate and House will go far towards keeping the GOP members in line. Yacht Has No Place in ike's Future Plans By DON WHITEHEAD ABOARD USS HELENA EN ROUTE TO HAWAII iffh- It looks as if President-elect Dwight Eisen- hower's passion for golf and fresh water fishing, and his announced desire for economy in government, will leave no place for the ocean- going yacht, the Williamsburg, as a presidential retreat in the next four years. Mountain Retreat The chances are, friends say, that Eisenhower will try to find a mountain retreat somewhere near with a small golf course as his hideaway from White House duties. And they say his plans rule out the Williamsburg not only as being too expensive a luxury but one not suited to his ideas of recreation. The ideal summer White House in Ike's book would be a mountain retreat at about feet altitude, not too far from Washington. Good fishing water would be a must and also the golf course. Sneak Away It would have to be close to the White House because Ike might want to sneak away en Fridays and not return until Sunday night. Some say be has thought that maybe former President Herbert Hoover's old retreat at Rapidan, Va., might fill the some place similar. He doesn't want anything fancy.

His 6-year-old brother, John, who is in poor condition at the hos- pital where he is being treated for head and neck injuries. Both boys were struck by the automobile when they darted into the street near the East Broadway- Zumbro Street intersection about p.m, police said. The driver, LeRoy Hurlburt, 27. 418 Jefferson St., told police that the children dashed into the street immediately in front of the au- tomobile and that he had no op- portunity to stop his car or turn out to avoid the accident. Hurlburt, not held iast night, WM arrested this morning on a charge of operating a motor vehicle with faulty brakes. He is scheduled to appear in municipal court Thurs- day. The death of th> St. Stanit-' laus School second-grader was the 15th traffic fatality te be recorded in the county this year and the third death on streets and highways in the city in 1952. The city's last traffic death oc- curred May 10 when a 19-year-old Winona youth was killed when the car in which he was riding rolled off the road in Sugar Loaf, near the city limits. From Playground Tuesday's accident occurred shortly after dusk while the two Rose brothers were apparently re- turning to their home for dinner after'spending the afternoon at an East End playground. Hurlburt told police that he driving east on Broadway en route to his home and was traveling about 25 miles an hour immedi- ately before the accident. Fred John A friend .box of clothing There apparently were no actual eyewitnesses of the accident, but it is believed that the children prob- ably were romping on the boule- vard before they ran into the street, police said. Hurlburt told authorities that be first sav the youngsters when they dashed into the path of his car. The fact that they were wearing dark finding might have contribut- ed to the fact that" the driver unable to see them earlier in the dusk. Hurlburt told authorities that be applied his brakes as soon as the boys ran in front of the car, but both were struck by the front bum- per. John was hurled a distance of 38 feet by the force of the impact, police found, and was lying in the westbound lane of traffic on East Broadway when the first persons arrived at the accident scene. Measurements taken at the site indicated that Fred was thrown 33 feet by the impact and was ly- ing in the eastbound traffic lane, about six feet from the south curb line. Both Unconscious Patrolman John J. Drazkowski received a telephone call reporting the accident to police headquar- ters at p.m. and immediately dispatched an ambulance manned by Patrolmen Sylvan Duellman and Herbert Kanthack. When the ambulance arrived both boys were unconscious although John was moaning. When the ambulance reached the hospital, Acting County Coroner John Tweedy pronounced the older youth dead. The younger brother was taken immediately to surgery for emergency treatment and ex- aminations. Reported to be in critical con- dition after his admission to the hospital, the child was said to have shown some slight improve- ment during the night.
