Oldtime Graves Are Uncovered Near Ainsworth Oak Ridge Construction AFL Workers Still Strike OAK RIDGE, Tenn.. strike of A.F.L. construction workers on a huge atomic plant project here showed no rigns of breaking up Friday. Union leaders have broadcast ap- peals, job stewards of the various crafts have asked the men to join them in returning, and the con- tractor has made two wage offers. But only a few of the 1.500 work- ers who walked off the project Tuesday have heeded the pleas. The half of the employed on the job- walked out on the day a delayed pay increase negotiated last fall was due. It was withheld pending approval of the wage stabilization board. Maxon Construction Co. has of- fered to pay at once all increases, possible under the WSB 10 per cent I formula and to make any further! pay hikes approved by the board retroactive to May I. (Staff Correspondent) PASCO Six graves were un- earthed Friday morning when a cat skinner, Joe R. Cyr, was oper- ating his equipment in a dirt mov- ing operation on the Standard Oil ;ank farm property located on the Snake river. When Cyr noticed, his find he notified Standard Oil officials who in turn notifisu Sheriff Harve Huston of Franklin county. Huston stated after com- pleting his preliminary examina- tion that it is possible that the graves are in a cemetery that was used by the people of the old town- site of Ainsworth established in the 80s on the Snake river near the old ferry landing. Roger Olson Franklin county coroner, ordered the graves marked and covered up until further in- vestigation is completed. Both Hus- ton and Olson requested that any of the "old timers" that have any knowledge of the cemetery get in touch with them so that they can expedite the removal of the bodies. At the time that Standard Oil pur- chased the property for their tank farm they had no idea they had a cemetery on their hands. There was no comment from Standard Oil officials. j guns added to the daily toll of Red casualties. Communists made m attacks.

"And so far as I can see they're This is the smallest number to continue to do any monthly call since the draft was resumed last September. Since that time, a total of 550.000 men have been drafted or placed on call for army duty. The army got men in each of the first three months of this year. Thereafter, the April draft was halved to 40.000 and the May quota was reduced from to The army said the cutbacks were made because of the greater num- ser of men volunteering for serv- ice and lower-th'an-expected casual- ties in Korea Presumably, the same factors en- tinue to pay the bloody price they've been paying."

The Reds were gathering today under the protective cover of rain clouds for another attempt. "It's a tragic Ridgway said, "that they have to sacrifice so many tens of thousands of peo- ple and continue to devastate this country for their own aggressive, selfish ends.

That reduces permitted consumption to 75 per cent of the level in the first half of 1950. On July 1, the national produc- tion authority announced, a fur- ther expected cut will reduce use- age to 70 per cent for passenger dated back for months. McMahon questioned "the advis- ability, if not the impropriety" of a field commander's expressing such differences to "people in pol- itical life." General Firm But MacArthur refused to con- cede he had done anything wrong. As on Thursday, reporters were barred from the hearing sessions so the manner in which the antag- onists delivered their exchanges was not known. From the censored transcript sent to them, it was plain, however, that there was of- ten considerable heat in the words. In the senate. Republicans, who have been fighting to open up the hearings to the public, pushed it to a vote but lost 41 to 37. McMahon's questions ranged into MacArthur's statement last fall that he hoped to have his boys "home by Christmas" and the gen- eral's tactics in splitting his forces for a "win-the-war" drive to tha Korean-Manchurian border. Plans Approved As to the split lorces, MacArthur said his troop dispositions had the approval of the joint chiefs of staff. And as to the "home by Christ- mas" talk, the general said, "that was my hope." The record indicated some signs of anger on MacArthur's part when McMahon asked whether he bought it came within the prov- nce of a theatre commander "to -eigster publicly with persons in political life, or out of it for thst matter, his differences of opinion" with his government. MacArthur replied: "I believe the theatre comman- [er has the responsibility of regis- ering his views as he might see fit, if they are honest views and ot in contradiction to any imple- menting directives that he m a y ave received."

At mid-year also, NPA said, it is anticipated the steel going into medium trucks will be limited to 100 per cent of the early-1950 level and, for heavy trucks of than 16.000 pounds, to 120 per cent of that base period.
