WASHINGTON, July 15.—(JP) —The vote-pulling power of a friendly letter from President Truman encounters a test tomorrow in Montana’s democratic primary, which finds James Roosevelt. son of the late president and at least two labor organizations bucking Senator Burton K. Wheeler’s renomination bid.  Lined up on the side are Wheeler and Mr. Truman, who protest-ed against the "smear campaign” he said was being made against his old senate colleague.  On the other are Lief Erickson, Wheeler’s opponent; James Roosevelt who urged nomination of Erickson in a statewide radio address because he said Wheeler went to "a very dangerous extreme in opposing policies designed for the protection of our nation in critical times.” the CIO. the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, Senator James E. Murray (D-Mont) and some members of the National Farmers Union.  Committee Already Probing  The senate campaign investigating committee has pushed into this criss-cross of alignments to dig into (I) contentions by Wheeler that he has been subjected to "unfair propaganda” and (2) a somewhat similar counter assertion by Erickson.  Acting Chairman Edwin C. Johnson (D-Colo) said he probably will call the group together tomorrow to hear New York and Montana witnesses testify about Wheeler’s claim that a recently j published book attempted to "smear” him.  Chinese Band Seizes Yanks  Seven Marines Taken In Village Where They'd Gene To Purchase Ice  By TOM MASTERSON  TIENTSIN. July 15, <.F>-Se%en Americn marines were taken prisoner Saturday by "an unidentified band of 80 armed Chinese” about 22 miles north of Chinwangtao, on the gulf of Chihli, U. S. marine corps headquarters announced here today.  The announcement said that all marine garrisons in the Chin-wangtao-Peitaiho area had been alerted and strong detachments had been ordered to search the countryside for the missing men.  An air search, which started at dawn Sunday hut was halted by weather conditions, will be resumed as soon as possible.  The Chinese press asserted that the captors were members of the communist army and nationalist troops were ordered to join in the search.  The marine announcement said the capture was effected in Hsin-anchoang Milage where the marines had gone to purchase ice. An eighth member of the detachment was in an ice house when the band struck and eluded capture.  The missing men were from a detachment which is guarding a bridge on the Peiping-Mukden railroad. They were stationed at Kiushouying. a mile and a half from the village where they were captured.  The marine announcement said the jeep and trailer used by the j captured men had been recovered in the villape but that no other information had been uncovered.  “Distortions’’ Charged by Truman ’ kind President Truman has made The committee’s investigation I outside of his own state of Mis disclosed a letter from ! sour!.

The senate group, without much success thus far, also has been looking into complaints by Erickson that Wheeler "dominates” the inquiry committee. It found, among other things, that the committee’s secretary, Mrs. Grace Johnson, formerly was employed by the senate small business committee headed by Murray, Wheeler’s Montana colleague who is opposing his renomination.  Sen. Murray Battles Wheeler  .The campaign committee learned that Murray donated $2,000 to the campaign of Erickson, who formerly headed the Missouri Valley authority Murray has been plugging. It also heard that $1,000 had been contributed bv the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen and $1,500 by the (TO United Auto Workers of Detroit.  Out of this maze Wheeler, seeking his fifth term, singled out the CIO-PAC for heavy attacks. He blasted too at what he railed the "New York Pinks” he said were against him because of his opposition to many of the late president Roosevelt’s foreign policies.  The Wheeler letter is the first political pronouncement of its  Arizona, Arkansas and Wyo ming hold primaries tomorrow j that have attracted little outside interest.
