Sees UN Planes No Mention of New Talks By DON HUTH Tokyo Chinas offi cial Peiping radio charged Thurs day American planes violate the Kaesong neutrality area in Korea nearly every day 1 The charge was injected into a series of broadcasts accusing Gen Matthew B Ridgway of ly ing slander and distortion The latest asserted violation was early Wednesday The badly garbled broadcast heard in Tokyo said an American bomber dropped a flare over toe site of the now suspended Korean war truce talks The radio said it happend at al most the same time Ridgway flatly refused to reopen an in vestigation of red charges that an allied plane bombed Kaesong Aug 22 Abusive Peiping called it an attempt to cover the flagrant lies that he handsd the world The broadcast made no men tion of the UN commanders offer to resume truce negotiations any time the communists are willing to do so He made the offer in the same note that refused to re open investigation of the asserted bombing Top red commanders to whom the message was addressed had not repliedThere was no in dication when they would In its sweeping accusation the Peiping radio said as many as 43 American planes had flown over the Kaesong neutral zone in a single day The neutral area ex a 5mile radius around Kaesong v American aircraft the broad cast asserted have incessantly illegally and constantly flown into the sky over the neutral

OMahoney The senator called the reduction from 575000 to an out rageous act Charges Dismissed Against Quakers for Draft Evasion tod tila zone The radio devoted most of its attention to attacking Ridgway The communist attitude tended to support a theory the reds want elay a decision on Korea un fter the Japanese peace treaty conference in San Francisco Cautious broadcasts dampened a cautious optimism expressed in a press release from General Ridgways headquarters The release suggested the red proposal to reinvestigate the Kae song bombing charge may con tain hope for resumption of truce talks Communists broke off negotiations Aug 23 a few hours after they said a UN plane bombed Kaesong The red broadcasts said Ridg ways latest note on the incident again distorted facts and was full of contradictions because he is lying It particularly assailed his state ment that a red liaison officer refused a request for a daylight investigation On the one hand he slanders our side as refusing to conduct a reinvestigation the radio said and on the other stubbornly re fuses our request for a reinvestiga tion j The broadcast then asked j Why is Ridgway so afraid of investigation like a criminal afraid of his final trial Ridgways liaison officer has said that investigation in the dark or night could not be held Why then does Ridgway insist on relying on unreliable in vestigation and yet refuse to make further reliable investigation Plenty of Time Ridgways headquarters has ob served that the lapse of time be tween the original investigation around midnight Aug 22 and the red offer Tuesday to make a new investigation allowed the commu nists plenty of time to manufac ture new evidence The UN command said original evidence did not indicate that Kae song was bombed The communist broadcast went into a lengthy denial of Ridgways statement that the communists re fused to permit a daylight inves tigation of their evidence Ridgway flatly told the red com Korean Premier Kim II Sung and Chinese Gen Peng he woulc make no further investigation be cause it would serve no useful pur pose He said he had definitely established no UN plane could have bombed Kaesong No one now expects Ridgway to agree to a reinvestigation Sioux City District Judge Henry N Graven has dis missed charges of draft law viola tions against two Quakers whose status made them draft exempi anyway The men are Donald Mott 26 of Paullina and Roy Paul Knight 23 of Earlham U S District Attorney T E Dia mond filed the dismissal with leave of the court Both men would have been au tomatically draft exempt if they had filled out the questionnaires their draft boards sent them las year They would have been de ferred because both were married before the 1948 selective service act was passed The two men were indicted on draft law violation charges when they refused to fill out draft ques tionnaires on grounds of religious principles Mott and Knight had served pre vious penitentiary sentences for refusal to comply with draft laws Senator Gillette D Iowa opened a fight in their behalf say ing It is unjust and unreasonable to send conscientious objectors to jail twice for refusing to comply with the law

past and did not try to call lis son there I think weve done the biggest Hoover Hits Government Dishonesty DCS Moines Hoover declared Thursday this nation is experiencing a cancerous growth of intellectual dishonesty in public life which is mostly beyond the law These evils the countrys only living former presi dent warned in a belated birthday address have defeated nations many times in human history The redemption of mankind by America will depend upon our ability to cope with these evils right here at home In its frustration the congress is groping for some sort of code of ethics which might protect the citizen from his own officials Much as congress has my good wishes something stronger than a new code of eth ics is needed in America Congress can well widen the laws so as to clutch the new kinds of bribes and benefits they have discovered Bet congress cannot reach intellectual dishonors Accepts Award But he told residents of his na tive state in accepting an award right will triumph because I know America is turning its face away from the maudlin leftisms and the spread of untruths of the past two decades We sense the frauds of mens minds and morals Moral indig nation is on the march again I cannot but feel there is strength in character and truth in decent living And it will triumph The nations elder statesman this year deferred his customary birthday address until Thursday He had said it would contain his thoughts for his 77th birthday Aug 10 Hoovers remarks were made to thousands of lowans assem bled Thursday afternoon at the state fair and broadcast nation ally Thursday night Preceding his address he ac cepted Iowa award Itwas the first plaque and scroll pre sented by the Iowa Centennial Memorial commmission for dis tinguished citizenship In following the theme con cerning honor in public life the former republican president did not specifically mention the dem ocratic administration which fol lowed Ais own Although he cited numerous happenings since he eft the white house he said near the start Let me say at once that hon or is not the exclusive property o any political party Fliyht From Honor Hoover reviewed many inc dents then commented repeated ly think about it He said Our greatest danger is not from in HERBERT HOOTER Flight From Honor vasion by foreign armies Our dangers are that we may comnu suicide from within by compla sance with evil Or by public to srance of scandalous behavior o by cynical acceptance of dishon or deed and the smartest thing he aid But as for his wife Eddy children from the Eddys on added I dont think shell see grounds that the parents lacked another happy day funds and werent able to main tain a proper home Five of them were placed for adoption Later after the Eddys The are still our children and always will be Eddy said and jthe door is open any time they hadj want to come home Turning to what he termed th light from honor Hoover saic during the recent past we hav iad a flood of exposures by con pressional committees by stat egislatures by grand juries in cores of cities and the press He said he sometimes wonder whatr the founding fathers would say about The 5 percent ers mink coats deep freezers anc ree hotels Or favoritism in gov ernment loans and governmen Contracts Or failures to prosecute evil oers who spread cancerous rack ets and gambling rings with their train of bribed officials Or o those who coquette with traitor ship Or of secret and disastrou commitments of our nation whid were denied at the time Hoover said corrupt propaganda w h i c h employs standardized gadgets and slogans is one o the chief instruments of intellec tual dishonesty in public life Handy Tools These gadgets he said have been very handy tools for making America over into14 new varie ties and getting us into hot and cold wars In this connection Hoover com mented As an aside I suggest at least we adjourn trying to make America over into some other shape until we get out of this cole or hot war Our present crisis is dangerous enough to require one concentrated undeviating purpose in Washing ton Many of our socalled social and economic gains will go by the boards anyway if this hot and cold war keeps up There will be plenty of time to exercise our muscles on new ex periments after these violent changes in international tempera ture are survived Hoover referred to secret com mitments at Teheran and Yalta as having sold the freedom of half a billion people down the river asked whether the commitments would have been approved by the people then commented I That is where we lost the peacei and wandered into the land of hot and cold wars He suggested that the nation tanrto the 10 sermon on the mount and ths rules of the game which we learned at our mothers knee and a nation live if these are not the guides of public life Governors Greet Hoover Return DCS Moines a topcoat overcoat over his arm Herbert Hoover stepped off a train at Ames and into Iowas sweltering heat at daybreak He was driven to a Des Moines hotel where he rested prior to a down town luncheon ia his honor Mr Hoovers birthday was Aug 10 but he said he would reserve Ms birthday remarks for his re turn to the state of his boyhood Before the fair Mr Hoover received a delegation headed by GOT William S Beardsley and 4 former Iowa gov ernors He also was presented the
