Gratitude Expressed Goodfellows workers express their gratitude to the individual givers_the one-two-three-four-five- ten-dollar gifts which are the back- bone of the campaign, for in those contributions lies the true Christ- mas spirit of giving. They also thank those living in communities many miles from Winona who have sent in contributions to help outfit Winona's children. Goodfellows dollars must con- tinue to come in. Today's total of is a lot of money, but when you realize that over 800 needy children must be served be- fore Christmas, you can see the amount so far received won't begin to stretch.

Farm Bureau Charts Course For New Year By JIM HUTCHESON SEATTLE Iff) Delegates to the American Farm Bureau Federa- tion Convention get down today to the No. 1 business of their 34th annual the or- ganization's policy course for 1953. Members of the Resolutions Committee reported their recom- mendations to the voting delegates will emphasize more strongly than ever before the advisability of a national policy of expanding world trade; A- belief in the necessity of for- eign trade as a two-way street, by which farm products can be moved to foreign markets, has been emphasized repeatedly since the convention opened Monday. It has been expounded by economists on the convention rostrum and by the federation president, Allan B. Kline. Other Points Other points listed for emphasis by the Resolutions Committee in- clude a need for decentralization of government, research in agricul- ture and control of inflation. A committee member said the resolutions prepared for action at the final afternoon session follow generally the principles set forth in previous annual platforms; "the emphasis is on change." The federation, the nation's larg- est farm organization with nearly 1% million families, is generally recognized as a conservative farm- ers' group. The normally controversial reso- lution on rjrice support levels for farm products is de-emphasized this year, committee members in- dicated, by the premise that lead- ers of both major political parties are committed to a "hands-off" approach to the existing law, which runs through the 1954 crop year. C47 Missing With 6 Aboard RENO (ffl An Air Force C47 transport with a crew of five and one passenger is missing in 'the Nevada-Utah border region but the assistant commander of Stead Air Force base is hopeful they made an emergency landing. "The plane is a tough old bird and the crew is said Col. Dimitrios Stampadob. The C47 is the Air Force version of commercial airlines' veteran DCS. "I feel they've probably put down on some prairie and we'll find them." Air Force and Civil Air Patrol planes began a search' at dawn for the C47. Names of the six on the C47, all from Stead AFB, were with- held. The Air Force transport vanished in a blinding snowstorm on a flight from Peterson Field, Colo- rado Springs to Reno. French Arrest Rebel Leaders RABAT, French Morocco HI French police have- arrested all leaders of the Moroccan National- ist Istiqlal party not in New York for the current United Nations ses- sion, it was learned today. The action followed bloody riot- ing in Casablanca earlier this week in which seven Europeans and an estimated 200 or more Moroccans were killed. Among those reported arrested were Mahammed Lyazidi, assistant secretary general of the Istiqlal and Dadj Oamar Ben Abdeljelil, Mohamed Ghazi and Abderrahim Ben Bouabid, members of tfte party's executive committee. Several Communists also were picked up. Early reports today indicated quiet prevailed in this French protectorate of 8Vi million inhabit- ants. bers of the Board (WSB) the week. All seven members representing industry quit last week in protest against the President's action in overruling the board in the coal mine wage case. Truman told a news conference that economic controls should be extended beyond April 30. He said he not only expected to announce industry members for the wage board, but that he expected to have a replacement for Roger Putnam when Putnam steps out as economic stabilization administra- tor. He verified reports that former Price Administrator Michael V. Disalle was under consideration for Putnam's post. Truman's announced intention to get the wage control program func- tioning again has run into opposi- tion from elements of organized labor, as well as business organiza- tions. The U. S. Chamber of Commerce has openly urged all businessmen to refuse posts on the WSB and both the Chamber and National Association of Manufacturers de- manded that Truman kill off both wage and price controls. Other government curbs, mean- while, were being relaxed. Curbs Ordered R. A. McDonald, chief of the National Production Authority, last night ordered curbs on use' of scarce metals for construction eased considerably beginning Jan. 1 because of an improving supply. He also ruled the automobile in- dustry may plan 1% million units in the April-May-June period next year, compared with 1% million allotted for the January-March quarter. Walter Reiither, new president of the CIO, arrived in town to try to put over the CIO's new anti-wage controls policy. The na- tion's other- big-organized-labor group, the AFL, so far is saying controls should be continued. Truman, faced with this growing clamor for an end to economic curbs, has been insisting he should turn over a functioning stabiliza- tion program to President-elect Eisenhower next month. There was no indication thatj Truman's attitude has changed. He and his economic stabilization chief, Roger L. Putnam, have been trying to round up enough business- men to serve in the vacated in- dustry posts on the WSB. Stymied in Work The wage board has been sty- mied in its .work, with more than applications pending for ap- proval of wage increases, since Chairman Archibald Cox and in- dustry members resigned last week in protest over Truman's handling of a coal pay increase. The WSB had ruled part of the increase was inflationary, but Truman okayed the full amount. The NAM's call for ending all controls was issued late yesterday by its new president, Charles R. Sligh Jr., who said: "The resignations of the chair- man and industry members of the (wage) board underscore the futil- ity of any further continuation of the whole wage-price stabilization fiasco." President Won't Meet Mac Arthur President Truman is'unruffled although almost surrounded by aides behind him, camera- men, standing, and reporters, seated, at his news conference in the executive offices building in Washington. Regarding the discussion about Gen. MacArthur's talk of a solution for Korea, the President rejected suggestions that he hold a White House conference with Eisenhower and MacArthur.

A Weather Bureau report said 30 to 45 mile an hour winds would continue to buffet the Lib- erty ship through Thursday, com- plicating if not preventing a hoped for attempt to drop a messenger line aboard from a helicopter. The vessel, inbound to the harbor from San Francisco, grounded 24 miles west of here Monday. ABOARD USS HELENA, EN ROUTE TO HAWAII An au- thoritative source disclosed today that Atty. Gen.-designate Herbert Brownell has completed plans for a giant housecleaning in the De- partment of Justice. Brownell, the informant said, plans to fire anyone whose name has been even remotely linked with government scandal. Brownell's first move after tak- ing office Jan. 20, the source said, will be to sweep out of office vir- tually all those in the policy-mak- ing level of the department. The SHOPPING DAYS LEFT Aircraft Maker May Be Named Air Secretary NEW YORK GW-Harold E. Tal- a New York aircraft indus- trialist, said he has heard reports that he will be named secretary of air under President-elect Eisen- hower but he has no direct knowl- edge of such a plan. The New York Daily News says Eisenhower has selected Talbott for the post and plans to announce the appointment on his return to New York next week. Aboard the cruiser Helena, Ei- senhower's press secretary, James C. Hagerty, said ''when we have any appointments to make we will I announce them." Talbott, 64, is a close personal friend of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, was finance chairman of the Re- publican National Committee when Dewey ran for president in 1948, and served on a GOP finance com- mittee during Eisenhower's -cam- paign. The News said Charles S. Thomas of Los Angeles has been selected as secretary of the Navy. Thomas is a Republican and for- mer special assistant to the late Navy Secretary James Forrestal.

Brownell was one of President- elect Dwight Eisenhower's top poli- tical advisers in the presidential campaign. It is understood he will give top priority to investigating cases deal- ing with Communism and subver- sion.

The meeting probably will be held early next week, said a source close to the President- elect. Eisenhower did not comment on President Truman's statement "if anyone has a reasonable plan for ending the Korean fighting that plan should be presented at once to the President." Ee did not name MacArthur. but his press secretary, Roger Tubby, said there was no question that the general was meant. Last Friday MacArthur hinted to the National Association of Manu- facturers he had a new plan for solving the Korean puzzle. In a message exchange, Eisen- hower and MacArthur agreed to meet to discuss it.

A reliable source said that Eisenhower and Gen. Douglas MacArthur will meet in New York shortly after Dee's re- turn to discuss MacArthur's plan for shortening the 'Korean war. (U.S. Navy Photo via Navy radiophoto and AP Wirepboto) Stores Open Friday and Saturday Nights Until 9 Calls Ike Korean Trip Piece of 'Demagoguery' Says Fired General Should Have Reported On 'Solution' to War WASHINGTON UP) President Truman today rejected that he hold a White House con- ference with Gens. Eisenhower and he blasted both of them. Truman called President-elect Eisenhower's campaign announce- ment that he would go to a piece of demagoguery. Arid he told his news conference that MacArthur should have re- ported to .him after he returned from Japan following MacArthur'i ouster last year. Truman said that is what any decent man would done. Truman spoke up in response to questions arising from MacArthur'i speech to the National Association of Manufacturers in New York last Friday that "there is a clear and definite solution" to the Korean conflict. Eisenhower said during his cam- paign that be would go to Korea in his efforts to bring about a speedy and honorable end to the Korean War. Earlier this week, Eisenhower messaged MacArthur that be would be happy to meet with him to cuss any plans the former Far Eastern commander might for ending the Korean War. Sent Eisenhower sent hii telegram to MacArthur from cruiser on which he is returning from Korean trip he undertook to carry out his campaign pledge. Truman then chaEenged Mac- Arthur to tell him any ideas he may have for ending the war. He said it was MacArthur's duty. And some congressmen suggested Truman meet with both President- elect Eisenhower and MacArthur to try to achieve a program for peace. Truman came to his news con- ference today obviously ready to do battle with the two generals. To dramatize the conference, be permitted still photographers and television and newsreel camera- men to make pictures before actual questioning started. The TV films were made for later showing. There was no telecast of the news conference! Truman said he traveled more than miles to see MacArthur at Wake Island and about all got for that was a lot of misinfor- mation. MicArthur Suggtstioni Asked what this misinformation was, Truman said MacArthur told him at their historic meeting at Wake Island, Oct. 14, 1950: 1. The Chinese would not into Korea. 2. It would be possible to send a division of the regular U. S. Army from Korea to Germany for occupation purposes to relieve an- other division by January, 1951. 3. That MacArthur was sure that the war was over. Truman fired MacArtbur April 11, 1951. ft MacArthur gave no details of any Korean peace plan in his New York speech last Friday. He did say it would not lead to unduly heavy Allied casualties. The news conference opened with a question asking the President's reaction to a suggestion by Fen. Watkifis (R-Utah) that1 he invite Eisenhower and MacArthur to a conference on Korean strategy. The President said be could not see that any good purpose would be served by such a conference; but he said either man would be welcome if be had something wanted to discuss. Then, referring to a statement- Eisenhower made after completing lis visit to Korea last week that' :c had DO panacea or trick to ending the Korean War, said that was a quotation from one of his own (Truman's) campaign speeches. Campaign He said later that he thought El-" senbower's quoting of him was unintentional. Asked about a report that the attorney general of Massachusetts had said Truman was urged to sajr during the recent campaign that himself would go to Korea, President said such a step was suggested. But, he said, he rejected suggestion deciding it would serve no good purpose and it would ust a piece of demagoguery. t ;
