   Walla Walla Union-Bulletin (Newspaper) - October 7, 1945, Walla Walla, Washington                               The National Whirligig c? -w Behind the Washington Tucker New lork Albert N. By John Fisher Marshal Georgl Zhukov ihould prove as effective an ambassador of good will for his county as Gen- eral Eisenhower has been for the United States in several European capitals, including Moscow. His visit may ease the tension which developed between Washing ton and Moscow in the sharp clashes of personalities and prin- ciples at the council of foreign min- isters in London. Cooperation of the Soviet union and the United States in specific cases of international policy is not easy, as recent disputes over Big Three exclusiveness, Balkan elec- tions and Italian colonies have dem- onstrated. Yet nearly everyone realizes that, until the two coun- tries learn to get along well to- gether, hope for a stable world will be dim. Authorities on diplomatic affairs point out that these two chief isol- ationist nations alone had the power to decide the outcome of World war II. Lack of their guidance pre- viously had permitted Europe and Asia to explode. Now they ara su- preme. Yet neither is experienced in the complicated task of interna- tional leadership. Both are feeling their way in a new field and each is somewhat suspicious of the motives of the other. Molotov's Tactics The experts warn that it will be tragic should the pair not colla- borate successfully. If the United States, they say, treats the Soviet union as a potential enemy, then we must ensure a long period of burdens, political uphea- vals and other disturbances as the fear-stricken world lines up in two hostile blocs. Lately, however, even those who most strongly favor close ties with Russia have been concerned over the obduracy of Molotov at the council of foreign ministers. Re- marks made by the leaders of other nations reveal that they, too, have been alienated by his seeming tru- culence. If history proves anything it is that one nation cannot antagonize the majority of other states and get away with it. Stalin himself has always shown that he is too wise a statesman to insist on hav- ing his own way at the cost of a ierious- rift in the grand alliance. What, then, it behind Molotov's tactics? Impartial statesmen believe that Moscow is mo're than ever pre- Our 77th Year, No. 147 Walla Walla, Wash., Sunday, October 7, 1945 NEA BtrrUi Int., Dilllu Sunday lOc Copy Sixteen Pages Liberals Appointed by New Premier United War Fund Drive Opening Set Kickof f Luncheon Wednes- day to Launch Campaign To Raise for Final Fund Effort The United War Fund campaign for Walla Walla city and county will open Wednesday and continue exactly three weeks until its close on October 31, with the largest quo- ta in local for the drive. The all-out effort will be Continued oa Editorial Nippon China Units Give Up TIENTSIN, China Gen. Keller E. Hockey, U. S. marine corps, Saturday accepted the sur- render of in Tientsin for Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, The Chinese populace cheered the marine hand played Amer- ican and Chinese anthems during the ceremony in which Hockey, commander of the Third marine am- phibious corps, received the swords of Lt. Gen. Ginosuke Uchida and MaJ. Gen. Shiro Omato. It was the first formal capitula- tion of Japanese troops in the Tientsin-Peiping area, where they totalled men. The Japanese, never defeated on the battlefield, were obviously re- sentful at being compelled to walk half a block to the surrender table In front of the French municipal building, where they laid their swords on the green cloth. Before the ceremony, the Nip- ponese naval attache at Tientsin, Captain Taijiri, committed hara kiri in his quarters. There was no further word of any trouble from Chinwangtao, where a few random shots were fired in launched with a kickoff luncheon Wednesday noon at the Grand ho- tel, at which the Kiwanis club will be host to the Rotary and Lions United War Fund campaign workers. Dr. Bruce R. Baxter of Portland, bishopog the Methodist church for the Portland area and form- erly president of Willamette uni- versity, will be the principal speak- er for the occasion. Campaign headquarters have been established for the duration of the campaign period in the Pa- cific Power and Light company of- fice, Second and Main streets. J. A. McKee, executive secretary of the United War Fund, is in charge of the drive office. As in the past several years, much of the solicitation work is be- ing done by means of letters to previous Roland Miller, county chairman. Several thousand letters were mailed out on October 1, giving details as to the quota for the cam- paign and reasons why the money is needed. A heavy response was noted by the end of the past week, it was reported Saturday by McKee, who said that the total of pre-campaign contributions had already passed all previous marks. Last year's drive started slowly but ended up with more than well over the 1944 guota of The Haines-Borrows company concluded its employe solicitation Saturday and turned in all money to become the first firm to qualify Lewis Turns Down Request To End Strike WASHINGTON L. Lewis turned down a request of bitumin- ous coal operators Saturday to end the soft coal strikes, but the gov- ernment did not press the issue. The operators made their plea at a conference with secretary of labor Lewis B. Schwellenbach, who told reporters he did not himself ask the United Mine Workers president to end the strike. About are idle in more than 600 mines in a controversy which sprang up over recognition of Lewis' supervisory union. Schwellenbach indicated he was withholding his own plea to end the strikes, until next week in case the conferences which he called with the operators and miners fail to produce a solution. Lewis disclaimed responsibility clubs as well as to a number of for the stoppages, saying they were begun by the local unions of United Clerical, Technical and Super- visory employes, in a battle for recognition by the operators. The producers insisted that Lewis had inspired the strikes and could end them. The conference will -eontinue Mcaday at 10 a. m. Warner Bros.

The Walla Walla Community (Continued on Page 8, Col.

De Gaulle re- turned from a tour of Alsace Satur- day enunciated the new French policy of friendship and cooperation The policy was announced by John Carter Vincent, chief of far eastern affairs at the state depart- ment who said all those special privileges which shintoism had as religion as "to be done state religion has been regarded as one of the power- ful controls which Japan's mili- tarist leaders exercised over their people. mo_ tion picture studio after both sides in the dispute had obtained court injunctions to prevent violence on the part of each other. Herbert Sorrell, head of the AFL conference of studio unions, which called the strike against major film studios last March 12, said there would be no picketing Sun- day but that the lines would form again Monday at 5 a.m. Some 400 or 500 pickets ranged eight abreast Saturday in front of the main gates of the rambling film plant in nearby Burbank, while perhaps half that number of non-strikers studio workers and spectators faced them across the studio. Warners said production was at a standstill. Reds Argue in Treaty Conflict LONDON Pravada editorial broadcast by Moscow radio Satur- day argued that if France were brought into Balkan treaty-making similar privileges should be ac- corded Yugoslavia, Poland a n d Czechoslovakia. "What grounds art there to re- move Yugoslavia from participa- tion in drawing up peace treaties with Italy and Germany's Balkan exsatellites, since it is known that Yugoslavia has done more than most other countries to defeat Hit- lerite Germany and Fascist the editoral asked. "While agreeing to extend number of countries invited to take part in drawing up peace treaties. how can one eliminate Poland and Czechoslovakia, whose sacifices in the struggle against Hitler's ag- gression are universally "Obviously there are no grounds for doing Pravda asserted.

Strike Vote Notice To Be Posted Workers Uneasy Because Telephone Firm Taking Stubborn Attitude in Current Wage Crisis NEW YORK UP) Henry Mayer, counsel for the Federation of Long Line Telephone Workers, said Sat- urday a strike vote notice would be filed for telephone workers throughout the country within 15 days. Mayer, also counsel for many of the 44 other unions which took some workers off their jobs in Friday's four-hour "token" walk- out, said the strike vote notice would be filed with the national labor relations board, the war la- bor board and the department of labor. Under the Smith-Connally act, strike balloting cannot begin un- til 30 days after notice is filed. "The workers are May- er asserted, "over the fact that the American Telephone and Tele- graph company has adopted a stub- born attitude in labor disputes." Called in Protest Authorization for the strike vote notice, Mayer said, as given by workers during Friday's walkout, called by the National Federation of Telephone Workers (IND) in protest against an NLRB examin- er's ruling that the Western Elec- tric Employes' association, Inc., at Kearny, N. J-, was company-dom- inated and therefore should be dis- solved. Mayer said the decision for a strike vote was "overwhelming" and that there was "not even a slight minority anywhere among the 45 organizations." Mayer, in his announcement Sat- urday, said demands for a wage in- crease averaging 30 per cent would be incorporated in the strike vote notice. Best Man Gets Much Attention BERRYVILLE, Senator Bennett Champ Clark of Missouri and Actress Violet Heming were married Saturday but the best man got more attention than the bride and bridegroom. The best man was President Har- ry Truman who came from the white house to "stand up" for his old friend and former fellow sena- tor. This little northern Virginia town of was agog over the cere- mony. Throughout the short ceremony, the president stood with bent head except once when loud knocking from a heating radiator caused him to look around. When Clark held out his hand for the ring, the presi- dent had it For the 51-year-old bride, who took her first starring part as "Wendy" in "Peter Pan" 35 years ago, it was her first marriage.

Too late, Mrs. Mansfeldt told police she is convinced her victim was innocent of her suspicion that she was having an affair with her husband. AFL Accuses CIO of Strike-Break Try PORTLAND, AFL Lum- ber and Sawmill workers Union, more of its pickets forced off by injunctions, Saturday accused the rival CIO and lumber operators of trying to break up its five-state strike. In a formal .statement, AFL strike policy committee heads cri- ticized injunctions to reopen CIO mills, and warned "we have just begun to fight, and the lumber in- dustry is going to remain down tight." The threat was backed up, the lumber union said, with a pledge from the Sailors union of the Pa- cific that "no seamen are going to sail any ships into any dock to pick up any lumber." Previously the Sailors union had applied its boycott already slowing down lumber shipments only to pick- eted mills. A 750-man Tacoma operation, closed when CIO workers refusing to pass AFL pickets, was expected to reopen Monday after the CIO won an anti-picket injunction. A "show cause" order, returnable men picketing a CIO Seattle plant The AFL statement, issued by John Christenson and Frank Chap- man, branded continued CIO-op- erator conciliation meetings as an effort "to set a precedent and break our strike." U.S. Ships in 'Russian9 Port SAN FRANCISCO Unit- ed States cruisers under command of Vice Adm. Daniel E. Barbey steamed into Chefoo harbor, the only Communist-held port in China, NBC Correspondent Robert Shaplen reported from aboard the flagship Saturday night He said Barbey was there to sur- vey what he described as tick- lish situation." Chefoo is southeast across the gulf of Chili from Tientsin where U. S. marines landed. It is 65 miles due south of Russian-held Port Arthur. The cruisers in the harbor are the Minneapolis. San Francisco, Tuscaloosa, New Orleans and Louis- ville. Chinese Communist forces enter- ed Chefoo. Shaplen said.

Nimitz. given the great- est homecoming welcome ever ac- corded a naval hero by the nation's capital since Dewey returned from Manila bay. received fresh honors Saturday.

Unpredictable Tigers Blast Chicago Cubs on Own Ball Lot CHICAGO (IP) Detroit's unpre-! dictable Tigers came roaring back! again Saturday behind the brilliant' five-hit pitching of Paul "Dizzy" Trout to wallop the Chicago Cubs, 4 to 1, before fans at Wrig- ley field and square the world se- ries at two victories apiece. In one big inning, the fourth, the Bengals broke their appalling bat- ting famine to drive southpaw Ray Prim from the mound and score all their runs on four hits and a pair of walks. With that to work on Trout was never threatened, and the only run scored off his scorch- ing fast ball and curves was un- earned. Up to the time of their dramatic outbreak, the Tigers had remained hitless through 10 innings and had not scored a run in 15 frames of series play. three innings.in Saturday's gloomy, 'tfrizZllng weather it had even looked like Prim might equal Claude Passeau's one-hit classic of Friday and all but crush out Detroit's last hope of the championship. Tigers Come Alive One was out when the Tigers suddenly burst their bounds and jumped back into the fight Eddie Mayo opened it with a walk, the first Bengal to reach first Roger Cramer and Hank Greenberg fol- lowed with clean singles, Mayo scoring on tne eevond blow, as Cra- mer advanced to second. When Soy Cullenbine came through with his first hit of the se- ries, a rousing double down the left field line that scored Cramer and sent Greenberg to third. Prim was yanked and was replaced by Paul Derringer. New Tap Chief Met MacArthur While Youth TOKYO new pre- mier, Baron Shidehara, related to newsmen Saturday how he had at- tended a social function in the United States many years ago and was told by his host: "I want you to meet a promis- ing young officer in the U. S. army who is very popular here." He enjoyed meeting the promis- ing, popular young officer, Shide- hara added. The officer was Douglas MacArthur.

New Chief Given Free Hand in Land Resignation of Former Cabinet Blamed on De- lay in Following Out Orders Issued TOKYO Baron Kujuro Shidehara, long-time foe of Japan's machmegun imperialism, became premier of a new government Sat- urday and forthwith disbanded the dread secret police. Given a free hand by Emperor Hirohito and the approval of Gen- eral MacArthur's headquarters. 73-year-old former ambassador to the United States dug into his task with a vigor that belied his years. Domei agency said his first act was to reappoint as foreign minis- ter Shigeru Yoshida, a like-minded man whose criticism of the war against the United States once landed him in jail. His second act, said the news- paper Asahi, was to appoint veter- an parliamentarian Yadanji Naka- jima to the crucial post of home minister, under whose authority the "thought" police ran their reign of terror. Causes Downfall It was the failure to obey prompt- ly MacArthur's order to dismiss home Minister Iwao who sought to save the secret police helped bring down Premier Higashi-Kuni's post-surrender gov- ernment Friday. Domei announced that the ministry, besides suspending secret police, freed 25 political pris- oners, including 16 Communists. It likewise dissolved the special higher police censor department, which pried into the lives of dis- senters, Dornei news agency said. Under MacArthur'g orders, pre- fectural police chiefs and others connected with the secret police plan of a gestapo-like "thought control" over Japan will be re- moved when the new cabinet" is formed, this account added. Domei took advantage of Mac- Arthur's new freedom of speech decree to attack the secret police, asserting its "bloody trail of ruth- less activities" kept the Japanese people in "utter dread of the name itself for many years." Shidehara's emergency from obscurity into which the militar- ists thrust him coincided with a, revolutionary proposal by the fin- ance ministry to permit the Japan- ese people to buy into vast stati holdings as a means of redeeminj the enormous war debts.
