"Maybe our canvassers will buckle down to more strenuous work this week.

CHUNGKING, Nov. 5. Communist sources charged today that American forces were fighting in China's undeclared civil war on the side of the Central Government, but a government spokesman said the accusation was groundless. The Communist newspaper New China Daily, which joined Radio Yenan in making the charge, said that American troops helped the Central Govern- ment's armies capture-two Communist-held villages in Northeast China near the Manchurian border. Information Minister K. C. Wu of Uie Chungking government categorically denied the charges and said the Communists had made them only in an effort to alienate the American people and lead them to ask for the with- drawal of United States forces from China. Communications Minister Yu Fei-Peng, however, revealed that U. S. Marines were accompanying each coal train traveling from North China's largest coal mine at Kailan southwest to Tientsin. Marines also garrison the mine, he said. North OFFERS BILL TO PENALIZE UNION HEADS By ARTHUR F. HERMANN I. N. S. Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Nov. F. E. Hebert (D) La., offered a new approach today to the prob- lem of postwar industrial strikes, which he charged are "crippling and obstructing" the national re- conversion program. Hebert announced that he would introduce an amendment to the Federal Anti-Trust Act to place labor officials under the law is aimed at "prohibit- ing and penalizing every combi- nation or conspiracy in restraint of trade or commerce." As the anti-trust laws now stand, labor organizations and their officials are specifically ex- empted. At the same lime, Sen. Morse (R) Ore., former member of the War Labor Board, called on the labor-management conference to devise dispute-settling machinery that "will be used entirely, and not half-used." Morse warned that "govern- mental regimentation" will be a threat if labor and management fail to find procedure for volun- tary arbitration and settlements. Discussing his proposed solu- tion to the problem, Hebert de- clared: "I have no doubt that if my amendment to the anti-trust law is adopted, Mr. Lewis (John L. Lewis, president of the United Mine Workers) could not act so brazen as to call a strike of hun- dreds of thousands of coal miners to tie up interstate fuel supply, steel manufacture and the manu- facturers of so many products vitally needed for business recon- verson in this country. Nor could Mr. Rauther (Walter P. Reuther of the UAW-CIO) so brazenly an- nounce that he will tie up the General Motors, Chrysler, Ford and other automobile factories." SCOUR PACIFIC FOR SURVIVORS OF PLANE CRASH HONOLULU, Nov. planes and surface craft scoured the Pacific today in the hope of finding 12 persons unaccounted for in the forced ocean-landing of an Army transport plane 450 miles east of Hawaii. Seven persons were known to have lost their lives in the crack- up of the Army plane. Eight of the 20 who took to rafts and life- jackets subsequently were res- cued. Another air-sea mishap, mean- while, had a happier outcome when 23 passengers and crewmen from a downed Pan-American Clipper were rescued yesterday and taken aboard the aircraft carrier Manila Bay. Both planes were enroute to the United States when they made forced landings. Occupants of the downed Clip- per, which made a water-landing 650 miles east of Honolulu, were picked up by the merchant ship, John Henry Payne and then transferred to the carrier. The Army land plane sank af- ter hitting the water but the Clipper remained afloat and was to be towed back to Honolulu. Failure of two of the Clipper's four motors was given as the rear son for the emergency landing. The eight known survivors of the Army crash were picked up by -surface vessels Saturday. Among them was one of the two women plane. passengers aboard the Medal Posthumously Awarded Pfc. Bordas A Bronze Star medal was re- cently posthumously awarded Private First Class Andrew F. Bordas, killed in action January 7, 1945, near Soy, Belgium. The citation, presented to the soldier's father, Andrew Bordas of Vander- bilt, reads as follows: "For heroic service in connec- tion with military operations against the enemy in Belgium, 3 January, 1945 When his com- pany (Infantry 'with 84th Di- was without a medical aid man during a withdrawal under intense enemy artillery, mortar and small arms fire. Pri- vate First Class Bordas, com- pletely disregarding his own safety, made numerous trips through the area to carry wound- ed men to safety. On 7 January, 1945, Private First Class Bordas was killed in action. The disdain for danger, unselfish action and commendable conduct displayed by Private First Class Bordas present an excellent example of .hose soldierly qualities which are n accordance with the finest tra- ditions of the military service." China's second largest mine, at Tsaochang in Southern Shantung, has been surrounded for 85 days by Communists, he said. Yu, charged that Communists have destroyed 848 miles of rail- ways in North China, paralyzing all lines. The government has put Japanese railway engi- neering troops to work repairing the lines, he said. In charging American interven- tion in North China, the New China Daily said that American forces and Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek's Nationalist troops swept PcMaiho, 10 miles south- west of the Manchurian border fortress of Shanhaikwan, with heavy machine-gun fire last Wednesday. Gpl. H. W. Livingston Leaves Service Corporal Harold W. Livingston, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. C.'

Ex- haustive tests indicate that Ru- dolf lless is sane and will go on trial with his former Nazi col- leagues, Allied War Crimes au- thorities said today. Hess, former Nazi party deputy, will be examined btf Russian physicians and an unidentified eminent American psychiatrist before the Nuernberg trials begin about November 20, but officials indicated they did not expect the findings to change his status. Justice Robert H. Jackson said his staff of American prosecutors will be ready by November 20 and he saw no reason to believe the prosecutors representing Brit- ain, Russia and France would re- quire any additional time beyond the trial date.

Staff Correspondent, MANILA, Nov. tending to minimize Gen. Tom- oyuki Yamashita's responsibility for Jap-perpetrated atrocities was introduced today at the war crimes trial of the former Jap Philippine commander. Defense questioning of witness NarcLsco Lapuz drew forth the assertion that Yamashita took orders from the notorious Count Juichi Tcrauchi, the Jap com- mander held responsible for the "rape of Nanking." Lapuz, opening witness at the start of the second week of Yama- ghita's trial, gave the defense its first important victory in the case which thus far has gone badly for Yamashita. Count Terauchi, Jap command- er in Southeast Asia, surrendered his command to the Allies at Singapore. He protested the sur- render with the statement that the Japanese army never had been defeated in a major battle and indicated that the army might yet rise again. Lapuz, a notorious collaborator, was secretary to the Quisling Filipino, Gen. Artemio Ricarte. This morning Lapuz repeated his testimony of last Saturday, alleg- ing that Yamashita acted under general orders from Jap Premier Hideki Tojo. Tojo's orders, according to La- puz, were to wipe out all Fili- pinos friendly to the American cause and to destroy Manila. Obvious defense strategy de- signed to pin the crimes of Yama- men on Terauchi and Tojo was somewhat beclouded by La- puz1 reputation as an open col- laborator with the Japanese oc- cupation forces in the Philippines. Four Area Youths Enlist in Navy Four young men from this dis- trict have enlisted in the U. S. Navy. They were processed through the Uniontown station and sworn in on November 2 in Pittsburgh.

William C. Stockdale, Carmich- aels. By International News Service. WASHINGTON7, Nov. Truman opened the labor-management conference today with a fervent appeal to speedily end industrial strife so that American production can lead the world to a "great future" of peace. The President also warned the all-important con- ference that unless strikes are ended "some impartial machinery" will have to be set up to keep the mills of the Nation in operation. Jurisdictional strikes must cease, the President emphasized. He asked both employer and employe stop giving "mere lip service" to collective bargaining. A picket line had been set up in front of the labor department auditorium, scene of the confer- ence, during the morjiing. High ranking union officials, including John L. Lewis, mine workers boss, walked through the line to enter the building. As the President's car ap- Windsor Faces City-Wide Strike In Ford Dispute WINDSOR, Ont., Nov. city-wide sympathy strike gOf un- ion labor was threatened today as CIO members shut down more than 25 industrial plants to join pickets barricading Ford Mo- tor Company of Canada. Police said more than pickets already had surrounded the sprawling Ford, installation, manning automobiles and com- mandeering busses in front of the main gates. The two-month old strike of Ford workers resulted from the union's failure to get govern- ment approval of maintenance of membership provisions sought through mediation. AFL Trade Union officials said their locals were beginning to vote immediately on possible sympathy action, which would affect an esti- mated workers. Police Chief Claud Renaud said there had been no violence so far. He reported that reinforced picket lines, protesting threatened intervention of Royal Canadian Mounted Police, had established a solid ring of automobiles around entrances of the five Ford plants. The sympathy strikes of an estimated CIO members virtually stopped operation of some 25 plants, including Chrysler, Kelsey-Hayes Wheel Company, Bendix-Eclipse, General Motors, Motors Products Corporation, and Automotive Parts Supplies. Renaud estimated pickets surrounded the Ford Gates. The reinforcement followed arrival of 250 provincial and mounted troops. City officials asid the extra forces were called in to avert violence. Dawson Man Held On Morals Charge, Girl Is Located UNIONTOWN, Nov. teriously missing from her home near Dawson, after allegedly be- ing persuaded to leave school, Mary Trapso. 13, was located by Assistant County Detective Lawrence A. Haggerty at the Edna Murray home near Connellsville. John Wilkes, 34, who is said by officers to have registered as man and wife at a Connellsville hotel and remained there two nights, was jailed on a morals charge. The school girl told the detective that she and Wilkes had planned to go to Cleveland to be married. Later their arrangements were altered and Mary was turned out in the street penniless. She ap- proached Edward Murray in Con- nellsville, asking for a place to sleep. She was taken to the Mur- ray home and Haggerty notified. Previously Wilkes was arrested in the hotel where he was regis- tering for the night. Mary %vas returned to the home of her sister, Margaret Trispso. She is expected to return to school. Automobile Accident. In an automobile wreck on the Morgantown road near Union- to'wn, Mr. and Mrs. Edward John- son, each 28, of West Brownsville and Miss Doris Crafty of the same town were seriously injured. Johnson and Miss Crafty were unconscious when removed from the wreckage. Each is believed to have suffered concussions. Mrs. Johnson escaped with a lacerated scalp. preached the entrance, however, the pickets laid down their ban- ners, and ceased their parading. The President's car drove into an areaway beside the building and he entered the auditorium through a side door. His car did not pass through the standing pickets. The picket line was set up by independent unions who were not invited to the parley. "Some substitute must be found for jurisdictional Mr. Truman told the union and in- dustry representatives. "Business simply cannot stop, life and property just cannot be endangered, merely because of some internal disagreement be- tween factions of labor, in which management can rightfully have no part and no the President declared. Mr. Truman said that he hopes he can "give up the President's wartime powers as soon as pos- sible, so that management and labor can again have the full and undivided responsibility for providing the production that we must have to safeguard our domestic economy and our lead- ership in international affairs." The conference was told that the country "is worried about our industrial relations." "It has a right to the Pres- ident emphasized. "That worry is reflected in the halls of Congress in the form of all kinds of pro- posed legislation. "You have it in your power to stop that he told the labor and management leaders, "I make no effort to fix the blame." "There are many considerations involved. At the basis of them all, it is not only the right, but the duty, to bargain collectively. I do not mean the willingness on both sides, yes, the determination to approach the bargaining table with an open mind, with an ap- preciation of what is on the other side of the with a firm resolve to reach an agreement fairly. "If that fails, if bargaining pro- duces no results, then there must be a willingness to use some im- partial machinery for reaching decisions on the basis of proven facts and realities, instead of rumor or propaganda or partisan statements. "That is the way to eliminate unnecessary friction. That is the way to prevent lock-outs and strikes. That is the way to keep production going." Mr. Truman told the conferees that methods will have to be found "not only for peaceful ne- gotiations of labor contracts, but also of insuring industrial peace for the lifetime of such, con- tracts." The President said that the whole system of "private enter- prise and individual opportunity" depends upon finding solutions to the present breaches between labor and management.
