Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Fair Tonight And Thursday, Colder Thursday Be a Good fellow VOLUME 52, NO. 257 SIX CENTS PfR COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, WEDNESDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 17, 1952 TWENTY-FOUR PAGES Liner U. S. Damaged In Southampton Gale LONDON (fl The crack new American liner United States was damaged and other shipping im- periled today by furious winds buf- feting the British Isles. There were gusts of more than 100 miles an hour.. The United States had just pulled away from the Southampton dock on a homeward voyage to New York when a gale caught her broadside and drove her back to the quay. The port side of the ship's bridge jammed in between two high dock- side cranes- denting the bridge work and scraping paint off the observation deck. The liner quickly worked loose and tugs resumed trying to get her out to sea. After an hour of tricky maneuvering in the gale force gusts, it was decided to wait until the wind died down. The liner was tied up at dockside and the 600 passengers aboard were told that sailing would be delayed. Conservatives Rule State Legislature By ADOLPH JOHNSON ST. PAUL of the Minnesota legislature are elected without party designation, but members still choose up sides. One group is the Conservatives, the other the Liberals. Usually, but not always, the Conservatives are Republicans and the Liberals are Democratic-Farmer-Laborites. can be more effective members of the legislature by lining up with the Conservatives. Currently and for the last 20 years the Conservatives are in the majority. They thus control the appointment of standing commit- tees, which are the heart of the legislative system. In the House the speaker names the committees. In the Senate assignments are made by a com- mittee on Committees. The Senate has 36 standing com- mittees, the House 38. There are committees to handle all the var- ious types of bills which may come before the legislature from agriculture and aviation to public welfare, taxes and workmeris com- pensation. Heading the list in each house is the Committee on Rules and Legislative Expense. The chairmen of these committees are the major- ity leaders of the House and Senate. The Committee on Rules holds the purse on spending for legis- lative purposes. It determines pro- cedure and policy. It decides, in case of argument, which committee should consider a bill. Each standing committee consti- tutes a sort of legislature in miniature. Members of a committee studying a bill have an opportunity to become thoroughly familiar with it.

PAUL W) The mystery of the disappearance of from receipts in the sale of game and fish licenses in Hennepin county remained unsolved today, despite a special examination by Richard A. Coiling, state public examiner. Robert F. Fitzsimmons, Hennepin County auditor, asked Coiling to make a special, audit of the re- cords pertaining to game and fish licenses issued by his employes. Daniel Pettigrew, deputy auditor, was for many years in charge of these licenses. He became ill March 18, 1952 and died two days later. Pettigrew had been assisted in this work since November, 1948, by Richard DeTuncq, deputy auditor. Golling reported that DeTuncq stated he had no control over the money realized from licenses he sold after he handed the money the end of each, day to Pettigrew. Pettigrew's strongbox, placed in the safe the night March 18 for safekeeping, was found locked the next day. After Pettigrew's death, a key was obtained from Frank Pettigrew, a son, before the box could be opened. The son asked permission to remove a brown envelope from his father's desk marked "personal." The envelope contained a little more than according to the son, the report says. From Jan. 1, 1952, to June 10, 1952, there was deposited with the county treasurer Licen- ses totaling could have I been issued by employes, Golling said With the cash amounting to counted on June 11, 1952, there was a deficiency of Golling said this deficiency coin- Quarry Drained, Hunt Continues For 2 Children NAPERVILLE, 111. inten- sive 10-day search for two missing children was renewed today, after the grim and tedious job of drain- ing a huge quarry failed to yield their bodies. The hunt for the youngsters, a 6-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy, developed into a community project. "We're mighty proud of our peo- Mayor Charles Wellner said. "They've done their best." For the last week residents of ___ Naperville have kept vigil at the cides-with the shortage that existed quarter mile wide quarry. The since March 18, 1952. pumping operation, an around-the-1 clock project by volunteer workers, was started after bloodhounds trailed the missing children to the quarry's edge. Hundreds had joined in the search on Dec. 7 shortly after the children, Jean Petersen and her next-door playmate Edward Rosen- stiel, had been reported missing. Forty square miles of countryside were covered by police, deputy sheriffs, Boy Stouts and hundreds of volunteers. Searchers combed Naperville for three days before plans were made to drain the quarry. They looked into every shed, garage, barn, well, viaduct, sewer and backyard in Naperville, a community of some about 30 miles west of Chi- cago. Pumping operations ended yes- terday after an estimated 90 mil- lion gallons of water had been drained into the nearby Du Page River. Workers with turtle hooks probed the muck and mud of the quarry's bottom without finding any trace of the children. Officials appealed to the FBI yesterday for aid but the FBI said it cannot enter the case until there is some evidence of kidnaping or other federal law violation. Offici- als said there is no evidence to support a theory of kidnaping. White Christmas Appears Certain WASHINGTON weather man's guess is that it will be a white Christmas generally north of a line from the Texas panhan- dle to Virginia. A long range forecast issued Tuesday said: "The Weather Bureau's 30-day outlook for mid-December to mid- January calls for temperatures to average below seasonal normals east of the Continental Divide ex- cept for near normal in the North- ern tier of states from the Dakotas eastward to New England. VTarm- er than normal conditions are in- dicated west of the Continental Di- vide. "Precipitation is expected to ex- ceed normal over the southern third of the nation and along the Atlantic Seaboard.

N. hopes to wind up its debate on Morocco today with a vote on two similarly moderate resolutions urging France and her North African pro- tectorate to settle their dif- ferences. The General Assembly's Politi- cal Committee scheduled the last speakers in debate on the question this morning and planned a final vote before afternoon. Two Resolutions These were the two resolutions before the committee: 1. Sponsored by 13 Asian and Arab France and the Sultan of Morocco to negotiate for an early settlement cord with the sovereignty in ac- of Mo- DiSalle Replaces Putnam as Wage, Price Controller WASHINGTON V.

Ey 11 Latin American coun- hope France and Morocco "will.-continue negotia- tions on an urgent basis towards developing the free political insti- tutions of the people of Morocco, with due regard to legitimate rights, and interests under the es- tablished norms and practices of the law of nations." As it became apparent during the debate that the latter draft had the stronger support, Pakistan last night asked that the Latin American resolution be amended to call for negotiations "with a view to bringing about self-gov- ernment for Moroccans." This wording was identical to that in the Tunisian resolution adopted by the committee last week, but the group voted down Yugoslavia Breaks Off With Vatican Tito Accuses Catholic Hub Of Hostility BELGRADE, Yugoslavia W) Premier Marshal Tito's govern- ment broke diplomatic relations with the Vatican today as a follow- up to the naming of Archbishop Alojzijc Stepinac to the College of Cardinals. Ales Bebler, Deputy Foreign Minister, informed a Vatican lomat, Msgr. Silvio di Oddi, of the i action. Msgr. Di Oddi said he had no comment. He 'has been serving as charge d'affaires here in the absence of the American Arch- bishop Joseph P. Hurley, the Vat- ican minister to Belgrade. Marshal Tito, in a speech Tues- day to workers in a factory near Belgrade, accused the Vatican of .hostile activity against Yugoslavia. Tito also threatened to call off a projected visit to London, because of British charges of religious per- secution here. The furor was touched off by British newspaper reports quoting Dr. Geoffrey Fisher, Britain's Archbishop of Canterbury, as say- ing that British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden would urge Tito to ease up on religious persecution when, the Yugoslav leader visits Britain next March. Tito, speaking before a crowd of about in a small factory town last night, said that the charges, of religious persecution were inspired by the Vatican. He declared he would not go to Britain unless at least half the British people want him to come.

BAUMAN WASHINGTON federal grand jury has accused Owen Lat- timore of swearing falsely that he had never been a sympathizer or promoter of Communism or Communist interests. The indictment returned late yesterday also accused the Far Eastern specialist and occasional State Department consultant of lying under oath on six other points during his testimony before the Senate internal security sub- committee last spring, The indict- ment termed all seven points "material." "I am, of course, Lattimore said. He is due to be arraigned Fri- day. Trial date may be fixed then. Lattimore has been a frequent target of Sen.

Sabre Jet Pilots Shoot Down MIG SEOUL Wl Allied Sabre jet pilots shot down one Communist MIG15 jet and damaged' four in four dogfights over North Korea today, the Fifth Air Force said. The destroyed MIG went down in flames. Pilots said it crashed just north of the Yalu River, the Korean-Manchurian boundary. 1 Col. James K. Johnson of Phoe- nix, Ariz., was credited with the MIG kill. He is commander of the 4th Fighter-Interceptor Wing. Credited with damaging MIGs were 2nd Lt. Paul J. Jacobsen, Elmore, Minn.; Capt. Vincent E. Stacy, Crystal Falls, Mich.; Maj. Vermont Garrison, Mt. Victory, Ky., and Marine Maj. Edwin H. Finlayson, Monticello, Fla. Tuesday, Sabres shot down at least four MIGs and damaged one.

McCarthy also has called Latti- more "one Of the principal archi- tects of our Far Eastern policy." Lattimore said that wasn't true either. The indictment prompted Sen. Mundt (D-SD) to call for a con- gressional investigation "to try to find out the names of the patron saints" of Lattimore and career diplomat John Carter Vincent. Vincent was suspended by the State Department Monday from his post es minister to Tangier after the Civil Service Commis-1 sion's Loyalty Review Board ruled j there was "reasonable doubt" as i to his loyalty. j "Some committee should seek the answers as to why Lattimore and Vincent have been protected so long and so effectively in. their jobs in the face of all the evi- Mundt told a reporter yes- terday.

Mc- recommended last July that the Justice Depart- ment lay before a grapd jury the question of whether Lattimore had committed perjury. The seven-count indictment grew out of Lattimore's 12 days of stormy testimony before the sub- committee during its long investi- gation of the Institute of Pacific Relations a privately-fi- nanced research organi2ation. The subcommittee said Latti- more, long a prominent figure in IPR affairs, "was, from some time beginning in the 1930s, a conscious articulate instrument of the Soviet conspiracy." The report called Vincent "the principal fulcrum of IPR pres- sures and influence in the State Department."

ARROWSMITH NEW YORK Dwight D. Eisenhower was pic- tured today as "absolutely insis- tent on maintaining a strictly neu- tral position" toward Sen. Robert A. Taft and any other in the running for Senate majority leader. An aide said that under no cir- cumstances would the general takt that support for Taft voiced by two GOP senators after conferences with Eisenhower rep- resented their own views. This aide, who asked not to named, said Eisenhower is so de- termined to be neutral that he has declined to discuss the leadership issue with even his closest associ- ates. The general takes the position, said the aide, that it is a matter for Senate Republicans alone to decide. Has Strong Backing There were signs, meanwhile, that if Taft decides he wants leadership post he will have the backing of a group of GOP sena- tors who supported Eisenhower against the Ohioan for the presi- dential nomination. Sen. Frank Carlson of Kansas, an Eisenhower adviser during the campaign, conferred with the gen- eral yesterday and told a newi conference afterward that if Taft wants to be Republican leader of the Senate, "I presume he will be." And Carlson added he would favor Taft for the job if he for it. Both Carlson and Sen. H. Alex- ander Smith of New Jersey pre- dicted there will be no fight among Senate Republicans over the post They said they are convinced Sen. Styles Bridges of New Hampshire doesn't want it- Both declared they didn't dis- cuss the matter with Eisenhower. Available for Job Taft, chairman of the Senate GOP Policy Committee, has said he is available for the job but is not making a fight for it. Bridges, minority leader in the Democratic- controlled 82nd Congress, has made it clear he would bid for the ma- jority spot only in an effort to avert a party fight. The possibility of a battle underscored when Taft sharply criticized Eisenhower's selection of Martin P. Durkin, the head of an AFL labor union, as his secretary of labor in the new administration. Durkin, a Democrat, backed Gov. Adlai E, Stevenson for the pres- idency. Durkin called on Eisenhower yes- terday and told reporters he still wants to get together with Taft to talk over the possibility of amending tie Taft-Hartley labor law. Durkin said he hopes to ar- range a conference after he office Jan. 20. Cleared With Meany Asked whether he felt other labor leaders would be satisfied with amendments instead of repeal, Durkin replied that George Meany, new president of the AFL, already had indicated amendments would be all right with him. Off another matter, there were new indications at Eisenhower headquarters that the general will confer soon with Gen. Douglas (Continued on Page 1, Column 1.)
