Manchuria Sees Senate Prestige in Danger Guy Gillette Says Average Man Cant Afford Race By EDWIN B HAAKINSON Washington Gil lette DIowa pointed Wednes day to two trends in the election of United States senators which he said threaten the prestige of the senate The lowan is chairman of the 3man senate subcommittee which is policing this years election of 36 senators Tuesday it ordered investigators into 4 states New York Pennsylvania Iowa and Kentucky Ten years ago Gillette also headed a similar committee Of the different problems that have developed in that span Gillette told a reporter First it now costs so many thousands of dollars to be a suc cessful senate candidate that the man of average or moderate wealth cannot afford to run Second the nomination of a senate candidate has become a center of political deals and po litical trafficking in too many states Powerful interests and zations recently have been com bining in thesedeals Gillette said If these two trends con tinue it could destroy the prestige and value of the senate Too IVTjiny Loopholes Existing and suggested federal laws aim at preventing or outlaw ing these trends but Gillette said it probably is impossible to cure or halt them by writing laws be cause there are so many loop holes After telephone conferences with his two subcommittee colleagues Senators Stennis DMiss and Schoeppel v Gillette Tuesday ordered attorneys and in vestigators into 4 states frprn which formal complaints centering on senatorial campaign have been filed They came from the American labor party in New York republi cans in Iowa and Kentucky and democrats in Pennsylvania Gov Thomas E Dewey of New York had no comment on the com mittees decision but State G O P Chairman William L Pfeiffer said he was not surprisedthat a democratcontrolled congress should inject itself into the campaign at the last moment Gillette said it may be necessary to hold public hearings in Phila delphia before election on Nov 7 committee investigators verify complaints of fraudulent registra tion and strongarm methods made by 4 democratic leaders Joseph Sharfsin former demo cratic city solicitor in Philadelphia who helped file the complaint is supporting the reelection drive by Senator Myers Myers is opposed by Gov James H Duff Public Hearing Gillette said he might also hold1 a public hearing in New York prior to election The committee received complaints by the Ameri can labor party and individual ALP officials involving the repub lican nomination for the senate and a series of democratic appoint ments and nominations but not that for senator Lt Gov Joe R Hanley republican is seeking to unseat Senator Herbert H Lehman DLibN The Kentucky complaint from republicans said Gov Earle Clem ents democratic senate entry is spending many times the 525000 limit now set by law for a senate candidate Clements opposes Charles I Dawson The Iowa complaint also from republicans alleged that agricul ture department employes were campaigning for Albert J Love land democratic senate nominee in violation of the Hatch act which prohibits political activity by most government workers His opponent is Senator Bourke B Hickenlooper Gillette declined to identify the committee investigators or say just when they will leave for the 4 states To do so would impair their effectiveness he said As soon as they arrive in a state it soon leaks Sidney Man Heads Iowa Bankers Group DCS Moincs H Pullman of Sidney was elected president of the Iowa Bankers association Wednesday He succeeds J F Kennedy of New

defense against communist armed might may be able to cre ate a bigger force and do it faster than their military planners have hoped This prospect cheering to a ner vous western world developed Wednesday out of the opening ses sion Tuesday of the military com mittee of the North Atlantic treaty organization It resulted essentially from 3 things 1 The urgent plea by American Gen Omar Bradley to the commit tee for action now to bring into being an integrated land sea and air force to resist any new military thrusts by Russia or her commu nist satellites 2 A move in the military com mittee sparked by one of the smaller nations tocontribute to the combined defensive oiganiza tion a larger force than had been blueprinted 3 The overt act of communism war to has stepped up the tempo of re armament by most of the Atlantic nations whether or not they are fighting in the far eastern conflict j Speed Asked A spokesman for the American delegation didnt identify the small country that set off the move to speed up formation of the com bined forces but he said the idea immediately gained approval from the other chiefs of staff who repre sent the treaty nations The proposal and a multitude of other details arising in Tuesdays discussion compelled the military committee to recess untilThurs day instead of finishing business in one day while the chiefs con sulted their superiors in Wash ington and at their home capi tals whatever the military committee docs constitutes only recommendations on which the high level committee of defense ministers will act at a meeting on Saturday and which that commit tee in turn may send on to the council of foreign ministers of the treaty powers Many Agreements A formal communique issued Tuesday night said that in the military committee meeting agreements were reached on several important matters to be submitted to the defense commit tee The American spokesman said this meant the military commit tee among other things agreed on A creation of an integrated force B creation of the office of supreme commander although Tuesdays session did not decide to recommend what nation should provide the man C a supreme headquarters probably somewhat on the pattern of the wartime SHAEF organization in Europe with a chief of staff Appar ently no decision was reached Tuesday on recommending the powers granted the supreme com mander Osage Cigar Store Burns at Big Loss Fire early Wednesday morning gutted the Editor Cigar store at Osage which was just taken over Monday by Don Schoenburn of New Haven The loss may

inside the wood paneling The show ioom was badly burned and a considerable portion of the 57000 stock was damaged Some of the stock will be salvaged Birunf thought the fire started in wiring near a radio in the par tition between the show room and the stock room in the rear Schoenburn who bought the business from the estate of the late Vic Hustings said that be fore going to his home at New Haven Tuesday evening he had arranged for insurance but he doubts whether it will cover the loss The building is owned by Gus tav Swanson Both wholesale and retail business is done from the store President Urges Support for UMT Law Washington AP President Truman dropped in Wednesday on a meeting of the Nations Guard association and urged its support for universal military training In an informal talk Mr Tru man said he had asked congress 8 times for a UMT law without success and indicated the white house will make an allout drive for creation of the system as part of the new defense program One of the most disgraceful things that ever happened in this country was to find that 34 per cent of our young men were not physically fit to serve in the armed force Mr Truman said A universal military training system could eradicate that dis grace I hope you will put everything you have behind a training pro gram to make the youth of this country better citizens and better able to defend the country Secretary of Defense Marshall also plugged universal military training and an expanded nation al guard in an address Tuesday to the association Marshall said too that if things keep working out the way they are there will be no war He did not expand on that statement Wallace Would Exclude Russia for Bad Faith New York A Wal lace said Wednesday the United Nations should be reorganized without Russia if the Soviet Union refused to serve good faith on a UN Korean commission Wallace former secretary of commerce who was fired by President Truman in 1946 for criticizing U S foreign policy toward Russia said the real test will come when the United Na tions forces win in Korea If Russia will not serve on such a commission in good faith then the time has come to divide the world in two and revamp the UN accordingly he said Up until 1948 I thought Rus sias needs were such that it was possible to arrive at a binding peaceful understanding at n cost far less than a shooting war Wal lace said But now I am firmly convinced that Russia wants a continuous cold war and as soon as she is ready she will want a shooting war The initiative is now Russias as it was Hitlers in 1938 and for the sake of his own people and the world I pray that Stalin may sec the light which Hitler failed to sec Jolson Leaves More Than Million New York ff The weekly theatrical
