Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - October 17, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin APPLETON POST CRESCENT VOL. LI No. 97 28 A, B APPLETON-NEENAH-MENASHA, WIS.r SATURDAY, OCTOBER ASSOCIATED PRESS WIRE SERVICE Price Seven Cents Marshall Dead; Tributes Pour in From Over World AP Wlrephoto Gen. George C. Marshall, then U. S. chief of staff, and Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, then commanfler-in- chief of the allied forces in North Africa, put their heads together at a news conference in North Africa in June, 1943. General Marshall died Friday at Walter- Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D. C. at age of 78. Famed Soldier-Statesman Guided U. S. Armed Might In War; Created Aid Plan Washington World leaders paid tribute today to Gen, George C. Marshall, who guided America's armed might In World war II and created the postwar Marshall plan to safe- guard free nations against communism. Marshall's death Friday at Walter Reed army hospital brought expressions of sorrow and loss from all over country and many capitals of Europe. The general had suf- fered a stroke last Jan. 15 at his winter home in Pinehurt, N. C., and was brought to Steelmen, Union Meet in Secret Outcome Could Bring End to Long, 95-Day Strike; New Offer Studied New York Steel in- dustry leaders kept secret to- day the place of a meeting that could decide the outcome of the 95-day steel strike. They had been expected to meet in the Waldorf-Astoria hotel at 10 a.m. to consider a union compromise offer. But at that hour none had appeared. There was no immediate an- nouncement as to where they would gather. Switch Plans The meeting was to have taken place in the Waldorf suite of A. B. Homer, presi- dent of the Bethlehem Steel company. The leaders, representing 12 major steel companies, were seen leaving the Park Lane hotel shortly before 10 a.m. They strolled along Park avenue as though heading for the Waldorf. But they had switched their plans and never arrived there. The union was reported to have put before the industry leaders a scaled-down propos- al calling for about 21 cents an hour in wage and benefit gains over a 2-year period. Acceptance of the offer would end the strike. The in- dustry had the alternatives or rejecting it or offering a counter-proposal. Sec. of Labor James P. Mitchell said in Washington he was optimistic that a set- tlement could be reached to avoid a Taft-Hartley law in- junction. Closer Together Such a court order, unwant- ed by either the industry or the striking steelworkers un- ion, likely will be sought by the government next week barring a weekend peace pact. "The parties are closer to- gether than they have been since the negotiations start- Mitchell said last night. The steel labor dispute has been going on for six months. There were indications that Besf Will be Basis For New Series One of the most human best sellers now on the United States book market is a reader called "For 2c Written by Harry Gol- den, the book'is a combi- nation of happy reminis- cence of his youth in New York, pithy humor and a great deal of "common sense" comment on the problems of our time. The Post-Crescent edi- torial department has managed to secure pub- lishing rights to some of the outstanding parts of the book. These will start in daily serial form next Monday. the government, although still wanting vto avoid a labor pact that would force an inflation- ary boost in steel prices, now considers that ending the strike is an equal if not over- riding consideration. The industry's negotiators are due to rush back to Wash- ington this afternoon to give union President David J. Mc- Donald their answer on his latest offer.. The reply could take the form of a counter proposal.

Raul will take over the new- ly created minister of armed forces. The younger Castro, a bit- ter critic of the United States, j already is commander in chief of the armed, forces. The new post will enable hum to make many military deci- sions There also was speculation that Raul's appointment may be a preliminary step leading to Fidel's resignation as prime minister to concentrate on his job as president of the National Institute of Agrar- ian Reform. Three have been unconfirmed reports that the Cuban leader wants to take a more active role in the direc- tion of the agency charged with a vast land distribution program. He has called the program the "cornerstone of the revolution." According to the reports. Minister of State Raul Roa would become prime minis- ter. The decree appointing Raul gives him 60 days in which to draft an "organic law" gov- erning operations of the new he will not seek reelection as the party's No. 2.

He added that taxes on these sources should be im- posed only as part of a com- plete revision. Tax relief, Lobb said, should be granted on homes, farm personal property chiefly livestock, merchants' and manufacturer's inventor- ies and the- income surtax. Lobb suggested a graduat; ed sales tax on goods and services, exempting food, rent, drugs, seed, fertilizer, and children's clothing.

GM said Friday that of its workers had been idled because of the dispute? Reports, a usually reliable industry sta- tistical firm, said 10 ofj the 13 Chevrolet assembly plants will be closed next week. The assembly plant at Framing- ham, Mass., was closed Fri- day, the first shut down in the wake of the 95-day old strike. In addition to the Janesville plant, Chevrolet will also close the Atlanta, Ga.. works on Tuesday. A total of employes, two-thirds of the production force, will be laid off at the Janesville assembly plant.

War Machine He led the gigantic war ma- chine of the United States as army chief of staff through- out World war II. Then in the evening of his life he was re- called to duty as secretary of state and again, during the Korean war, as secretary of defense. For his formulation of the Marshall plan, which bolster- ed free nations of the west with massive economic aid from America, Marshall was awarded the' Nobel peace prize in 1953. President Eisenhower called Marshall's death "a cause for profound grief throughout the Umted States." He ordered the flag to be flown at half staff from all public buildings and military'installations until af- ter Marshall's funeral Tues- day afternoon. Typically, Marshall-had de- creed that his funeral be a simple one. It will be held at Ft. Myer chapel, on the edge of the Arlington National cem- etery in Virginia. Interment in the cemetery, resting place of soldiers both illustrious and humble, will be private. Eisenhower's statem e n t said in part: "For his un- swerving devotion to the safe- guarding of the security and freedom of our nation, for his wise counsel and action and driving determination in times of grave danger, we are last- ingly in his debt." Military Manner It was Marshall who recog- nized the ability of a junior brigadier general named Dwight Eisenhower as the clouds of World war II were gathering. Marshall jumped Eisenhower to a key post and later sent him on up the lad- der to become supreme allied commander for the European invasion. Until the day Eisenhower became president, Marshall, in his clipped, correct and al- most cold military manner, addressed him only as "Eis- enhower." Other tributes to Marshall poured in from statemen and from his few surviving col- leagues of highest rank in World war II.

Hansen has three children, and one of them, Nancy, 6, testified in his defense in a tense, dramatic appearance before a packed courtroom. Spectacular Trial The decision came on the 21st day of the trial, which was one of the most spectac- ular in recent Chicago court- room history. Hansen, a tall, bespectacled part-time school teacher, was accused of slaying Susan Hansen, 25, May 24 in her south side home a month aft- er she had divorced him on grounds of cruelty. She was found dead on the floor of her bedroom with a broken neck. As soon as the verdict was announced, Hansen turned and hugged his defense attor- ney, Charles A. Bellows. Then he embraced his mother and brothers, Julian and Richard, both lawyers who also aided in the defense. Asked how he felt, Hansen replied, "I'm a little tired aft- er being locked up for five months." Was he worried about the verdict? "I was just concerned. I was'a little disappointed in the indiscretion of the state's attorney and police." Selwyn Lloyd to Confer in Paris Paris British Foreign Sec.
