Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 19, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Thundershowers Tonight and Wednesday VOLUME 52, NO. 156 Tonight Last Time to Register For Sept. 9 Primary SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, TUESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 19, 1952 TWENTY PAGES Adlai Calls Off Speech at Kasson Chinese Seen Begging for Russian Arms Experts Believe Far East War Will Be Stepped Up By JOHN A. SCALI WASHINGTON Amer- ican diplomats view the top-level Chinese Russian conference in Moscow as mainly a "begging ex- pedition" by the Chinese Reds. These officials speculate that the Chinese are dissatisfied with Rus- sia's promises and would plead for: 1. More financial aid to supple- ment the 300-million-dollar loan Moscow promised in February, 1950. 2. Bigger and faster shipments of Russian-made military supplies for hard-pressed Chinese Commu- nist troops in Korea. 3. Removal of Russian troops from Port Arthur and return to Red China of the Changchun Rail- way as promised by the end of i this year. Conference Routine The State Department has cau- tiously labeled the Chinese-Soviet conference as "routine" and said such meetings by partner nations are to be expected. But experts on Russian and Chi- nese affairs here feel the purpose of the huddle is aimed at finding ways to continue the Korean War j rather than at any policy change might mean peace in the Far East. The makeup of the 15-man Chi- nese Communist delegation, head- ed by Premier-Foreign Minister This Is How the lifeboat house at the British coastal resort of Lynmouth, England, looked Sunday after being torn in half by flash floods torrents.

The factory was only 3 miles soutfi ot point to war -objectives, with par- alleling attention to economic and financial problems. the Manchurian border. Far East headquarters in Tokyo said the sprawling works was one of the 78 military targets the U.N. Most officials seemed to agree j Command has given advance no- j Chou and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Vishinsky would review the friendship and alliance treaty they signed Feb. 14, 1950, along with separate agreements dealing with "Port Arthur, the Changchun Railway and Dairen. All these properties are now at least partly controlled and oper- ated by the Russians. Under the 1950 agreements, Moscow prom- tice it will attack. It was the first time the plant, at Nakwon, half way between Sin- uiju and Namsidong, had been hit. ised to pull out of Port Arthur and nearby installations and re- turn the Changchun Railway to Red China. Settle Details American officials believe that if Russia is to live up to these promises, conferences of the type now going on in Moscow undoubt- edly are necessary to settle de- tails. The future of Dairen undoubtedly will come up for discussion al- though Russia made no promises to return this port at any specific date. To back up their belief the Chi- nese Reds might ask for a fatter Russian loan, officials pointed out that Russia has devalued the ruble since the last credit was announced cutting its value by one-fourth. The loan was to be extended during a five-year period in installments of 60 million dollars each. Results the raid were not an- nounced.

The Democrats- for-Eisenhower wanted the conven- tion to go on record that pledging its not be construed as an endorsement of the two nominees." Block Amendments Gov. Hugh White, personal sup- porter of Stevenson, led the fight to block qualifying amendments. Former Gov. Fielding Wright, leader of the 1948 Dixie made the first bid to qualify the convention's resolution pledging the electors to the ticket. Wright "reluctantly" endorsed Stevenson "solely because under the circumstances I could see no other choice that we in Mississippi can make alone."

Cries of Son Call Rescuer To Fatality Lanesboro Farmer Found Dead Under Tipped Tractor LANESBORO, Minn. The cries of a 4-year-old boy, ly- ing pinned beneath an overturned tractor off a road south of here Monday evening, attracted a res- cuer who found the boy's dead father crushed beneath the vehi- cle. Dead is James Milne, 28, area farmer, who suffocated when the tractor crushed him, according to Dr. J. P. Nehring, Preston, Fill- more County coroner. Confined to Dr. R. B. Johnson's Hospital at Lanesboro is Jerry Milne, who suffered a severely- crushed right leg. The child lay injured, his leg caught beneath the machine, for about Wi hours. Found at 7 Howard Olstad, Spring Valley, found the dead father and his child about' 7 p.m. The accident occurred 2V4 miles southwest of here as Milne and his son were returning from Lanes- boro to the Guy Leister farm, north of Preston, where Milne was employed. Dr. Nehring said he believes the accident happened about p.m., on the Scanlan-Ford road, a town- ship road between Preston and here. Milne and Jerry were riding the three-ton tractor, pulling a ma- nure spreader which they had tak- en of Lanesboro for repairs. Jerry is believed to have been sitting in his father's lap. The vehicle left the road and plunged down a 10-foot embank- ment on the left side, pinning Milne beneath the tractor. Olstad discovered the manure spreader protruding from the ditch at the side of the road. He was on his way to a farm he owns along the road when he saw the spread- er and heard Jerry crying. I Wrecker Called j Unable to remove the boy, he came to Lanesboro to summon the I volunteer fire department and a j wrecker from a garage. After 15 I minutes, the child was extricated and removed to the hospital by ambulance. He arrived there about 8 p.m., about 3V4 hours af- ter the accident. The body of Milne was taken to the Thauwald Fun- eral Home at Preston. Surviving are Mrs. Milne, the former Marjorie Mangan, Preston; two other children, Patricia, 6, and Robert, -2; Milne's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Milne, rural Pres- ton; two brothers, Donald, Pres- ton, and Norman, at home, and one sister, Mrs. Orlando Michel, Harmony. Funeral arrangements are in- complete. Colored Margarine Legislation Urged GREEN BAY of the sale of colored margarine in Wisconsin, removal of the state's 15 cents per pound consumer tax on oleo and elimination of the food seller's oleo licenses were urged Monday in a resolution adopted by the Wisconsin Retail Food Dealers Association. More than 500 persons registered ,for the association's convention j which opened here Sunday and closed today. The group called upon the Wis- consin Legislature to end marga- rine restriction because of the harm which it said is done to re- tail food dealers. The resolution said food dealers have to buy oleo sales licenses because many customers request margarine, although the demand for oleo is not always great enough to recompense the dealer for the price he must pay for his state permit. The resolution also said food dealers near the borders of neigh- boring states lose grocery revenue because many Wisconsin house- wives journey into adjacent states to buy untaxed and colored marga- rine and also tarry to do their other grocery shopping. At a banquet Monday night, the Association installed the following state officers, all of whom bad been re-elected earlier in the day: Ralph Larson, La Crosse, presi- dent; Robert Connolly, Superior, first vice president; Arley John- son, Wausau, second vice presi- dent; Ray Van Dyck, De Pere, third vice president, George Schott, Milwaukee, treasurer, and Fred Wienke, Milwaukee, secre- tary-manager. 'Loop-a-Plane' Stalls 2 Girls on Top ST. CLOUD, Minn. un- identified 17-year-old girls from Pillager, Minn., got an unexpected thrill on a carnival thrill ride at the Benton County Fair Sunday night. The "loop-a-plane" ride stalled- with the girls stranded at the top. Firemen brought the girls down via an elevating ladder. Ceiling Prices To Be Posted In All Groceries By WILLIAM O. VARN WASHINGTON govern- ment stepped up plans today to post dollars and cents food price ceilings on the walls of more than half of the nation's grocery stores by Oct. 1. The Office of Price Stabilization said orders will go out shortly to its 54 district offices to get the pricing charts ready for posting. Each poster is expected to show the ceilings for some 300 major market-basket items. The action will be a return to the uniform community pricing program used in World War II. Price Stabilizer Ellis Arnall said this has proved to be the most effective means of food price con- trol. He said the program will have j two big advantages: t Know at Glance 1. It will let consumers know at a glance the ceiling prices on many basic foods they buy. 2. It will reb'eve grocers of the necessity of calculating individual ceilings on the items that must be posted. OPS said the decision to 'expand the community pricing program from coast to coast is based on results from trial tests in three I areas started last January. The i agency said these tests have been a success in the marketing areas surrounding Jacksonville, Fla.; 1 Fargo, N. D., and Fresno, Calif. Officials said both consumer and I trade groups in those areas have asked that the program be con- j tinued. Robert L.

It was the Alabama senator's first speech since he was nomina- j ted for vice president as Steven- son's running mate. He labeled it but party leaders nevertheless looked upon his visit back home as the start of a serious vote-getting campaign. The vice presidential nominee spoke to a home-town crowd esti- mated by police at It cli- maxed the first round of a four- day home-coming celebration ex- tending from here to Birmingham. Today's festivities took Spark- man first to the small North Ala- bama town of Arab, then to nearby Albertville, where his wife Ivon was born. Tomorrow, Uie senator returns to Hartselle, where he was born 52 years ago, and Thursday he goes to Birmingham for another speech. Sparkman made no mention of civil rights or any other -campaign issue in his homecoming talk yes- terday. The civil rights controversy was mentioned earlier at a news con- ference when the senator told re- porters he felt certain Stevenson would satisfy the Southern voters on that as well as other issues. As for the Republican threat in the traditionally Democratic South, Sparkman said he was "glad to see the GOP taking an interest" in the people below the Mason- Dixon line, but wondered whether the interest will continue after elec- tion day. It never has in the past, he said. Spa'rkraan conferred with Ala- bama Democratic leaders on cam- paign plans for the state yester- day. Waterville Bank Robbed of WATERVILLE, Minn.

Archbishop J. Francis A. Mc- Intyre of Los Angeles was invited to deliver the sermon and Bishop Charles F. Buddy of San Diego to be celebrant. In a preliminary to council ses- sions, Cardinal Spellman told an audience at a reception in his honor in Pasadena Civic Audito- rium last night: "It is time far past the time for us to realize that by our lethargy, we are responsible for encouraging Communists to in- crease their power and their foul plays until they believe that there is no limit to the humiliations and aggressions that Americans will tamely allow to infiltrate, develop, dominate and destroy our liberty with dark spots on the right cheek, and democratic institutions."

Stevenson's date to make a major farm speech at Minnesota's tional Plowing Contest was called off today after contest officials de- clined to permit him to speak the same day as Dwight D. Eisen- lower. Wilson W. Wyatt, the governor's campaign manager in Springfield, issued a pre-dawn statement say- ing contest officials had reversed their position in barring a Sept. 6 speech by the Democratic presi- dential nominee. He also charged they backed down on a subsequent decision to make the whole arrangement con- ditional on Eisenhower's approval. Speech Cancelled Stevenson's office had announced Monday night that the governor would make bis farm speech at the contest in Kasson, Minn., at 3 p. m. that four hours after Eisenhower's scheduled ap- pearance. Eisenhower had accepted the in- vitation two days earlier. But the contest executive com- mittee decided after a four-hour meeting early today to invite the governor to speak Sept Eisenhower appearing as sched- uled the following day. In Minneapolis today, Wiliam E. Carlson, St. Paul, Democratic can- didate for U. S. Senator, charged that the committee had, "in effect refused Adlai Stevenson the right to Carlson said "it has been known for some tame that the Democratic nominee for pres- ident is committed elsewhere on Sept. 5." Wyatt telegraphed the committee that -.neither Stevenson nor John Sparkman, the democratic vice presidential nominee, could appear Sept. 5 because of prior commit ments. Wyatt said the governor was in- vited to speak on Aug. 10 by Philip S. Duff Jr., chairman of the public relations committee for the event. He said Duff informed the gover- nor that Robert Hurrle of Rochest- er, Minn., the program committee chairman, welcomed him for either day of the 5 or 6. Door Closed Wyatt added that he telephoned Duff Monday night when he was informed of press reports that ac- ceptance by Eisenhower, the GOP presidential nominee, had "closed the door" for a speech by Steven- son the same day. Wyatt added: "Mr. Duff told me that dur- ing the middle of yesteray after- noon he heard indirectly that since Gen. Eisenhower had accepted for Sept. 6, Gov. Stevenson would no longer be welcome on that day. Mr. Duff said "he immediately sought out Mr. Hurrle to check the truth of the rumor. Upon find- ing Mr. Hurrle, Mr. Duff learned Mr. Hurrle now took the position that Gov. Stevenson's invitation for the sixth of September should be withdrawn in the light of Gen. Eis- enhower's acceptance." Hurrle said earlier in Minnea- polis: "We opened the fifth and sixth to both candidates and when Eisen- hower accepted the sixth, that closed the day. With two speeches on the same day, the crowd be held in the observation area and nobody would get any plow- ing done." California Fire Spreads, 1 Killed ELSINORE.
