Bur- ,-icr arid William L. Weber has no local right to art. The Burner-Weber faction had railed a special meeting oi: the executive committee at which E. Rodman, former sheriff, was elect- ed chairman to succeed Bohn. Judge Belt's decision represented n victory for the faction of the party with which Clarence A. Gra- ham' veteran Democratic leader, has been identified.

Judge contended that t h f Burricr Weber faction's move on April 14 to dissolve the regular elected executive committee and the iubsequent plortion of a new committee was not a legal action. Commenting or. this, the judge vud that "if the law were other- wise, an executive committee could hr removed at will and without notice and there could not be any semblance of organization." .ludpe Belt also said in his opin- ion that the Burrier-Weber faction, attempting to justify its action in naming a new committee, producer! evidence to the effect that a non- pnrtisan ballot, the plaintiff 01 some members of the committee counseled member of the party to vote for a Republican. -This was a judicial the opinion said, "which under the law is non-partisan in all respects "Further evidence was offered tending to show that a letter was mailed, signed by Fred Bohn, chair- man of the executive committee, advocating votes for one or more members of the Republican party, who were candidates for office in a municipal election in on a non-partisan ticket.''

By next February five of its seve'n division and both its regi- mental combat, teams will have been sent back to America. The 85th (Custerl division will lead the movement back home starting in August. This division, hich underwent 14 months com- at duty in Italy, will be the first ll-selective service division in the S army to be deactivated, Fifth rmy headquarters announced. Headquarters gave this lineup of he disposition of the Fifth: 34th division, with more combat ime against the enemy than any ther outfit, to be redeployed to he United States and placed in ac'.ical reserve for possible Pa- :ific service. 85th division to be deactivated the United States can move in any time "with no trouble at all" in the opinion of the new commanding general of the marines in the Pacific. Lt Gen. Roy S. Geiger, back from the Okinawa wars where he led the Third amphibious corps, asserted victory could be won only by the invasion, that the Ameri- cans would be met by men and women civilian fighters, but all that "won't be any worry to us. "It's only a question BOW of wading in and finishing this war." He told a press confer- ence here yesterday upon his arrival to take over as marine commander from Lt. Gen. Hol- land M. Smith. A different view was taken at Okinawa by Gen. Joseph W. Stil- well, commander of the U. S.

Eleanor and her parents, Rev. and Mrs. Benson Harvey, are vis- ting at the home of Mr. and Mrs. George R. Nichols of 326 Ham- ine avenue while enroute east. The parents were missionaries in the Philippines for 19 years. Rev. that "the court knows nothing of the motives which inspired such art ion. They may have been un- worthy motives, or such action may have been a display of the highest type of citizenship; but whatever the motive, no member nf the committee was confronted with any charges before being re- moved or given an opportunity to defend. Summing up his opinion, ,lMlff Belt held that the pro- ceedings of the central com- mittee on April 14, and that HIP successors of ousted offi- cers and committee members lire -ilniply usurpers and have no right to serve in the posi- tions to which they were nam- ed. Graham A Graham represented Bohn, while William Weber, Carl Funk and Ralph Marshall served as attorneys for the rival faction. Weber said today that the case probably would be appealed. Meanwhile, today's court ruling is expected to result in the ap- pointment soon of a successor to Mrs. George Aitken as a member of the county board of elections. Secretary of State Edward J. Hummel had held up the appoint- ment pending the outcome of the court case. Wayne Dudley, former city coun- cilman, has been endorsed for the post by the Bohn faction, while the rival Redman committee voted its support to G. F. Stockum of Ot- sego.

MANILA-i au- thorities revealed today that a series of daring and carefully planned Japanese attempts to assassinate Gen. Douglas Mac- Arthur have been foiled in re- cent months. Specially trained Japanese civilians and soldiers were sent into Manila to seek out and kill the commander-in- chief rtf U. S. army forces in the Pacific. The Japs had hand gren- ades concealed on their per- sons and all were caught and executed as spies. The enemy spies were sent to the capital from the town of Montalban, about 30 miles northeast of Manila. Montal- ban was the place where they were given hasty training at an improvised spy school. The school was conducted by a Jap intelligence officer from Man- ila's notorious Fort Santiago. This Jap officer fled from Manila after the American into the city and took with him civilians whom he later trained in espionage. Although some of the spies succeeded in reaching Manila they were quickly apprehend- fd and none came close to ac- complishing his mission. troops killing Japanese at the ratio of 13 to 1 struck today for southeast- ern Borneo's richest oil fields after a whirlwind five-day invasion thrust that conquered Balikpapan, its vital harbor, and two support- ing air bases.
