This Boy's Tough 12-Year Old Stowaway Sur- viyei Long Flight in Air- plane Engine Nacelle SYDNEY, Aug. 8, 12- year-old Indonesian boy was be- ing treated at Darwin hospital to- day for multiple burns, exposure and shock after an amazing three hour-flight from Koepang in the engine nacelle of a Dutch Dakota transport. A Sydney Sun dispatch from Darwin said the mechanic who went to lock the plane's under- carriage last night, saw the un- conscious boy's body twined a- round the lowering mechanism within the engine nacelle. After regaining consciousness the boy 'said he came from Koe- pang to see Australia, but refus- ed to give his name. RAAF officers at Darwin were astounded that the boy, who was clad shirt and shorts, could have lived- through the three-hour flight at feet un- protected from cold blasts of air fanned by an airscrew a few feet away. By CLAIR JOHNSON Aug. 8, UR- IC ey members, republican and democratic, of. the potent house rules committee agreed today that the defeat of Rep. Slaughter (D-Mo.) is an important feather in the administration's cap. Rep. Michener of Michigan, who also is acting republican leader, told a reporter that should the democrats retain control of the next congress, the Missour- replacement would help the rules group "function in the way it is -intended." That, Michener added, is to send to the house floor the legis- lative program of the party in power. It was Slaughter's opposition within the committee to many administration measures that Isd President Truman to call public- ly for his defeat in Tuesday's fif- 'th district primary in Missouri. Chairman Sabath (D-I11) com- mented that with Slaughter's departure the southerners on the rules body "no longer will con- trol it." The committee has 12 members, only four of them republicans. But the eight democrats only two are administration stalwarts and Rep. James J. De- laney Because a tie vote blocks action on any measure un- der consideration, Slaughter and his five Dixie colleagues have been able to make their views prevail. Sabath said the balance will be swung still further away from the southern group if Rep.
