Charleston Gazette (Newspaper) - January 15, 1946, Charleston, West Virginia Charleston Gazette Tuesday, Jan. 15, 1946 Wainwright Shifted to Texas Famed 'Skinny' Goes Back to San Antonio Post NEW YORK, Jan. Gen. Jonathan M. Wainwright. 30 pounds heavier than when released from his long captivity just five months ago. leaves New York Fri- day for the final role of his long military career. The last-minute switch of official orders, which moves the famed "Skinny" from the eastern defense command te command of the 4th Army, at San Antonio, Tex., sees htm returned to the first post he held after graduating from West Point la Julie. 1808. "1 like the Idea of finishing up where I Wainwright said today at Governor'! island. The general will be eligible to retire In August. 1M7. when he be- comes years old. The burden of social activities which attends the office of chief of the eastern defense command is to have beeen the deciding fac- tor In Wainwrilht's sudden shift from job he was formally to take over tomorrow.

The War Department has made no announcement about a successor to Wainwright as head of the east- ern defense command. K is stated in unofficial quar- however, that the 1st Army may be moved into the New York area. If that is the case, Gen. Court- ney H. Hodges, European comman- der of the smashing 1st Army, will take over the New York post. Three officers who shared Wain- wrlght's three years and three months in Jap prisons will serve with him at San Antonio. They are his chief of staff. Brig. Gen. Lewis C. Beebe, Faribault, Minn.; Col. John R. Pugh, of Wash- ington, D. C., and Lt. Col. Tom Dooley, of McKinney, Tex. M-Sgt. Hubert Carroll, of Paris, Tex., who stayed with Wainwright throughout his years of imprisonment, will shift south with the general. Wainwright's reception upon his return to the U. S. four months ago has been all but unprecedent- ed. He addressed both houses of congress, and received his Congres- sional Medal of Honor from Pres- ident Truman at a special cere- mony at the White House. Parades in honor of the gaunt, modest soldier who returned be- lieving he might be condemned by Americans for having surrendered Corregidor to overwhelming odds, attracted 10 million spectators. Depending less and less on the cane which Gen. MacArthur left for him at Corregidor, in the dark early days of the war, Wainwright is almost fully restored to health. He gained 15 of his 30 new pounds during the two-month trip through the U. S. which ended last Saturday when he reviewed the parade up 5th Av. of the 82d Air- borne Division.

The American Telephone and Tel- egraph Co. said service was normal and heavy in all its long distance stations yesterday afternoon except In Cleveland and St. Louis, where operators were reported returning to work. Refusal of operators to cross packet lines in many cities had dis- rupted long distance and some lo- cal service last Friday.

These nations thus far have claimed gold losses of 700 million dollars, but only 300 million dollars worth of gold has so far been re- covered in Germany. Search for the missing 400 million dollars worth of gold continues. The inter-Allied commission, with responsibility for allocating to 18 nations the actual German prop- erties or other proceeds of repara- tions collections, will begin its work in Brussels in February. The agreements reached in Paris in December, did not concern Sovi- et Russia since the Russians, in the Potsdam conference, gave up their rights to reparations collec- tions from western Germany and foreign countries. The State Department said that the policy announced at Paris for the restitution of looted gold is considered of primary importance. All the looted gold that can be recovered will be put in a single! Jewish Group Asks Home in Palestine WASHINGTON. Jan. Peter Bergspn, chairman of the He- brew committee of National Libera- tion, urged the Anglo-American Palestine committee to recommend recognition of Palestine as the He- brew nation. Bergson, who said he was Russian born out now claims Palestine as his home, described the Hebrew committee of nine members as the "temporary national authority speaking for and representing the interests of the Hebrew nation." The Anglo-American committee named by Britain and the United States to inquire into the Jewish situation in the Levant, asked him whether his organization had a constitution and if so to submit It. The delegates asked for his definition of a Hebrew. He described a Hebrew as a resi- dent of Palestine, or a person of He- brew extraction who wished to go to Palestine. Dr. Isaac Steinberg of New York, secretary general of the Freeland league for Jewish territorial coloni- zation, which he said has mem- bers, recommended as a permanent solution of the Jewish question that a large undeveloped area in one of the uninhabited spaces of the world be made available for Jewish coloni- zation. He said that the Freeland league does not believe that the whole future of Jewry must be bound up with Palestine. He mentioned Aus- tralia as one of the possible areas for colonization. Dorothea Detzer, American secre- tary of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, rec- ommended that the United Nations Organization call a conference to consider the whole question of mi- gration, as the Palestine problem is but one small segment. Body of Man Found Atop Ky. Mountain STANFORD, Ky.. Jan. The bruised and gashed body of a man tentatively Identified as Otto Jaschke. about 35, Cincinnati, fruit dealer and trucker, was found today atop Halls Gap, scenic spot seven miles from Stanford. The discovery was made by a tourist who had stopped to view the mountain scenery. He reported finding the body about 15 or 20 feet below the highway on a moun- tainside which slopes downward ap- proximately 1.500 feet. Coroner William Dudderar an- nounced following an examination of the body that the man had been dead about three days and had died at the hands of one or more unidentified assailants who had beaten and robbed him. Papers in his pockets indicated he operated a large truck and trail- er between northern and southern points, purchasing and reselling all kinds of fruit. The truck was not found immedi- ately. Coroner Dudderar said the man's pockets had been turned inside out, indicating the robbery motive, and that only 33 cents in cash was found on him. His driver's license and other papers were missing, but other trucking bills' and papers were found. He was recognized by some tav- ern keepers along the highway as fund, and each participating coun-! having stopped at their places fre- try which can prove that it was'quently, but none could confirm his robbed of gold by Germany will be reimbursed proportionately to its proven losses. Loot ia Two Groups All reparations from Germany are divided into two Category B which Includes mer- chant shipping, industrial plants and other equipment slated tor re- moval from Germany to Allied countries, and category A which covers all other German assets, in- cluding one billion. 500 million dol- lars worth of properties in for- eign countries.

One tavern operator told officers he usually carried a large sum of money. Sheriff Ep Noe said he was in- vestigating the case on a possible theory that the man was slain else- where and his body thrown away at Halls Gap.

Only Ice, milk and meat deliver- ies continued. Butchers laid they would loin the lockout tomorrow. Open restaurants were a rarity, and taxi service was reduced to min- imum. Some drugstores functioned on an emergency basif. Close The government, which may order some services resumed on the grounds that r'-iblic health Is men- aced. has assured the public 'that no one would be deprived of "articles of prime necessity." .Only those factories which must have 24 hours maintenance service permitted entry of workers, and in those cases only skeleton crews were on hand. Packing houses were idle. Large construction projects were halted. A few small neighborhood shops remained open and there were some hucksters in the streets, but ap- parently most workers stayed home, content to make the most of a three-day midsummer holiday with pay. Their amusement schedule was limited. Theaters, motion pictura houses, night clubs and other amusement places joined with the commercial interests in the show of peaceful defiance to the govern- ment Banks remained open, as did government offices. Transportation, chiefly govern- ment-controlled, functioned on a re- duced scale with few passengers. The government remained un- moved in its determination to de- mand compliance with its decree. President Jfarrcll received various union delegations during the day who reaffirmed support of the gov- ernment. Navy to Release Without 'Suitable Work' WASHINGTON, Jan.

Solons Waiting (Continued From Pane 1 joint committee to study the ques- tion of who should succeed the president and vice president in case both die. This matter, like the fact- finding bill, is one on which Presi- dent Truman has requested action. O'Daniel later joined Eastland in the plan to press for action on the fact-finding bill Thursday. But Sen. Ellender who Is offi- cial sponsor of the measure, an- nounced that he wants "extensive hearings" and will fight any move to take the measure from the com- mittee now. Committee hearings will resume tomorrow. The house labor committee put off until late next week a resump- tion of its hearings on the fact-find- ing bill. First it plans to deal with a bill disposing of the U. S. Em- ployment Service. Mr. Truman wants federal control retained until mid-1947. During the recess he vetoed a bill which would have re- turned the service to state control within 100 days. Tied up with this was a cutback of in appropriations due to the end of war, which the President had to veto at the same time. Today he sent congress a message recommending additional cutbacks of in ap- propriations and in con- tract authorizations. The President's detailed fiscal recommendations will be laid be- fore congress in the annual budget message next week. Confers With Senators Meanwhile Mr. Truman appealed again for action on his fact-finding bill and other legislative proposals as Sen. McKellar presi- dent pro tempore of the senate, and House Majority Leader McCormack of Massachusetts called at the White House. McCormack, who was elected acting speaker in the ab- sence of Speaker Raj-burn of Texas, told repotrers Mr. Truman was "very anxious" for speedy action. Congressmen heard that one item in the President's message Thursday will be a request for a full year's extension of the price control act which expires June 30. Comment of senators indicated the extension will be voted but possibly with modifications. The top congressional investiga- tion, into the Pearl Harbor attack, will be resumed tomorrow with Rear Adm. Husband E. Kimmel as the witness. The senate atomic energy com- mittes resumes hearings Monday. Chairman McMahon (D-Conn) told a reporter that it wants Mr. Truman to consult it before he makes any final decision on international policy on the subject. Reds Accused (Continued From Page 1> lease of the so-called "Young Mar- shal" Chiang Hsueh-liang and Gen. Yang Hu-cheng. They have been kept under sur- veillance by the government since they engineered the kidnaping of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek In December, 1936. Purpose of the kid- naping was to achieve unity among the government, Communists and other factions to present general At a morning session, the United opposition to the Japanese. Nations broke a deadlock over the 18th member of the economic and social council. New Zealand with- drew her candidacy in favor of Yugoslavia after, it was reliably re- ported, Britain and America had guaranteed her a three-year term on the council at the next election in September. Meanwhile, behind-the-scenes dis- cussions centered on the post of secretary general and composition of the trusteeship council. Trygve Lie, Norwegian foreign minister, denied reports that he was advocated as a candidate for the secretaryship by a "Russian bloc." There were other reports that the Russians wanted to postpone elec- tion .of a secretary general. until the assembly meets in April. Arab delegates said they were anxious to obtain representation on the trusteeship council. Upper- most in their minds, they said, was th question of Palestine which they declared is ready for independence. Arabs Ask Statehood These sources said the Arab league considers Palestine "Is In exactly the same position as Syria, the Lebanon and Iraq, whose man- dates have expired." One Arab commentator said "we consider that Palestine should "be- come at the earliest possible mo- ment an independent Arab state. If Palestine is to.retain the status of an undeveloped country with the possibility of future self-govern- ment, obviously from the Arab point of view the best thing that can happen is that the responsibility should fall upon those W are most likely to grant us self-govern- ment in the shortest space of time." However, Arthur Henderson, Brit- ish undersecetary for India, said he doubted that the question of Palestine and the Tranijordan would be brought up at present, explaining that an Anglo-American commission was only just beginning its investigation. Tomorrow night the chief dele- gates and members of Prime Min- ister Attlee's cabinet will be guests of the British government at a ban- quet In historic painted hall at Greenwich.

A-Bomb Senators (Continued Froos fmgm 1) named recently, but Mr. Truman said at a subsequent news confer- ence that this action did not fore- close the senate group from mak- ing on foreign, as well as domestic, controls. The McMahon committee has held five weeks of hearings, and -has visited at least one manufacturing center. The 'senator said he be- lieved It has become about as fa- milier with the atomic energy problem as any group of non-sci- entists could. In the international field, he said he felt the group has two objec- tives: first, to recommend to the senate how much of the secret shall be shared with other nations and under what conditions and. second, to seek to cooperate with the President on forming policy. He expressed hope the group can agree soon on domestic legislation although he conceded that congress is not likely to act finally on con- trols at home until it knows defi- nitely what sort of international controls are to be set up.

A thousand Army enlisted men met Secretary of War Patterson at the airport today and petitioned for an opportunity to discuss demands for more clear-cut policy on dis- charges. There were indications that such a meeting might be held tomorrow as Lt. Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer, China theater commander, met a GI committee earlier in the day and helped them draft questions to sub- mit to Patterson. He promised to help obtain an interview with the touring cabinet member. Patterson plans to leave in about two days for Manila, scene of enlisted men's demonstrations for faster demobili- zation. When Patterson landed here, the petitioning soldiers were massed be- hind a rope barrier. They were notably quiet and orderly, the only visible indication of dissatisfication being placards on a few Army vehicles reading "Uncle Sam's for- gotten men welcome you." Pfc. David M. Miller, former school teacher of Gulfport, Miss., himself a 28-point man, presented the petition. Patterson replied over a public address system, telling the soldiers, mostly Air Force men, that he was not worried about their conduct, which he was sure would be orderly. But he called their at- tention to the fact that "the eyes of various other Rus- sians, British and French are watching what we are doing here in China." At about the same time, several thousand Chinese students were marching through Shanghai's streets, waving placards and shout- ing to Amcricr i troops along the route, "Why don't you go The demonstrators, participating in a student movement intended to be nationwide, also demanded democratization of China. Later, of them paraded in front of the French consulate in protest against French arrest of a French Nazi suspect in disregard of Chinese sovereignty.

Judge Hall also dealt with the problems of illicit sale of liquor and juvenile deli-iuency, and urg- ed that more be done locally to combat the problem of juvenile delinquency, explaining that "we are still extremely deficient in pro- viding sufficient recreation for the adolescent youth, which he must have if he is to grow up to be a strong and useful citizen." Citizens of the community were urged not to fail to appear as wit- nesses before the grand jury if able to shed any light upon a crime that has been committed and were urged to cooperate to their utmost with persons endeavoring to enforce the laws. H. Pierce Brawner of Charleston was named foreman of the grand jury which began investigation of a'.out 260 presentments after hear- ing thejudge's charge. Other grand jurors are George L.

After Judge LiBcile entered an automatic not guilty plea for her she left with Ahrens, grabbing his arm when she faltered. Mrs. Leggett wept during the hearing, adjourned until Friday at 10 a. m. by Judge LaBelle. Her husband, whom District At- torney John F. Doyle said Mrs. Leggett had absolved of all knowl- edge of the slaying, was not in court. In a statement, Doyle said, Mrs. Leggett related that Mite deChanis died at the Leggett farm home fol- lowing an altercation during which she struck the girl, who fell and struck her head on a dresser. Doyle said Mrs. Leggett stated that she drove Miss deChants to the Leggett home from Saratoga Springs last Wednesday to perform an abortion on her. When the girl failed to follow certain instructions, the district at- torney quoted Mrs. Leggett's state- ment, the older woman struck her in the face, causing her to fall. The next day, Doylit added, the nurse said she dragged the body behind a chicken coop, dismember- ed it with a carving knife and buried the torso. She put the other parts in a box and left them near the Sarasota Springs raceway, Doyle said.
