Castle Sacrificed Life by Taking Controls of Flaming B-17 So Crew Could Escape WASHINGTON, March Gen. Frederick W. Cas- tle, who was killed in 1944 over Belgium while leading an air strike by more than bomb- ers, has been awarded posthum- ously the Medal of Honor. The department in an- nouncing the award today said he made a "willing sacrifice of his life" by taking over controls of a flaming B-17 flying fortress bomber to enable the crew to parachute to safety. The bombing formation, escort- ed by nearly fighters, was said officially to have been the largest ever assembled. It at- tacked German air fields and lines of communication to help turn the tide of the battle of the bulge Dec. 24, 1044. Enroute to the target, an en gine of Castile's bomber failed and he was forced to quit his place at the head of the forma- tion. Refusing to jettison his bombs because of the hazard to allied troops, Castle tried in vain to save the plane, then took over controls and ordered the crew to jump, while he was carried to his death, the war department said. Only years old, Castle was the son of Col. Benjamin F. Cas- tle, U. S. army retired, Washing- ton. D. C., and Mrs. Winifred Walker Castle, Lake Arrowhead, N. J. A graduate of the military academy, he was out of the army from 1034 to 1942. Castle Army Air base, Merced, California, named in his honor, will be dedi- cated this summer.

(Delayed) Manchuria's port city of Dairen. occupied by Hed army troops, is considered by the Soviets their own personal property for the moment. From all indications, they arc in a forceful condition to stay. Full dress Red Army maneu- vers are being held over exten- sive areas of the rolling country to the north of Dairen. Dairon civilians feel strongly that, while the Reds may leave other parts of Manchuria in re- turn for certain economic conces- sions, they will not evacuate Dai- ren at any price. Near Biff Naval Base The Russians have built tre- mendous military strength in Dairen, 30 miles from the big naval base at Port Arthur and clearly are seen to be taking a strong hold here. Official Soviet secret police are keeping foreigners under a close surveillance. Huge quantities of industrial machinery.

Lewis called on the coal industry today to open wage negotiations cover- ing some soft coal simultaneously served notice he is Teady to call a nation-wide coal strike April 1 to enforce his demands. The Un-od Mine Workers leader, in typical fashion, fired a double-barrelled blast lo open what may well be one of the most bitter and hard-fought labor-management battles in the industry's history. Under the same March 2 Lewis sent letters to bituminous operators and to the government, one inviting the industry to open wage talks here on March 12, the been taken factories as booty of a 10-days-war and ship- ped to Vladivostok. I was told equip- rks that 80 per cent of the ment of the Anshan steelworks between Dairen and Mukden was put aboard 30 freighters which sailed for Vladivostok in a con- voy last year. Lcnd-Lease Tanks There Staff SRt. Dick Wilkins, of New York, of the army news- parer Stars and Stripes, Asso- ciated Press Photographer Julian Wilson, of Louisville. Ky., and I rode into Dairen on Soviet trains yesterday. Mile after mile we saw Red forces in military maneuvers. They employed tanks, mortars and anti-aircraft guns. American lend-lease tanks were in evi- dence. As we neared Dairen, we could see, on either side, fully-equip- ped soldiers crawling across fields on their bellies in mock battle rows. Rows of surprisingly big anti-aircraft batteries were bvmg placed in strategic spots "War Not Over" Some Soviet planes are based three miles from Dairen on one of the largest fields in Asia, built by the Japanese. The Reds have their own pri- vate interpretation of the Soviet treaty signed with China last August. They contend they have exclusive right to Dairen for the duration of the and they argue the war is not over until the peace is signed. Chinese here interpret the treaty as fixing Daircn's status as other advising the government that a "dispute" exists and that he will wait 30 days before strik- ing. Operators Must Be There Coal operators, who had ex- Lewis' invitation, arc ound by the union's contract to participate in the wage confer- ence. At the same time, industry spokesmen made it clear that, depending on the extent of the LJMW wage increase proposals, the negotiations probably will bo a drawn-out, sternly-contested affair. These operator represen- tatives, who asked not to be named, said any major pay in- crease will mean a coal price in- crease, and contended that coal prices already are too high to leave the industry in a satisfac- tory position for competition with oil and gas fuels. In his letter to Ezra Van Horn of Cleveland, chairman of the operators negotiating committee of the national bituminous coal wage conference, Lewis declared "new arrangements" are neces- sary covering "wages, hours, rules, practices, differentials, in- and "other pertinent matters" affecting the industry. Lewis Injectn New Issue Soft coal miners currently re- ceive a basic wage of an hour for a 35-hour week. With over- time, underground travel allow- ances, and other .additional pay- ments, they can receive a maxi- mum of weekly, although the UMW contends the average weekly pay hns ranged around In his 30-day strike notice, filed with Secretary of Labor Schwcllenbach, the Nationa Labor Relations Board, and thi. National Wage Stabilization Board, Lewis interjected an issue almost as controversial as the wage question. This covers the right of mine foremen and other supervisory employes to be members of the union and be covered by con- tract. Coal operators invariably have contested that demand bit- terly and are certain to make a show-down fight in the new ne- gotiations.
