John A. Paul of Pittsburgh, Pa., was all smiles today while holding 18-nonth-old Darlene Daugherty. Darlene should be happier than she looks because Mrs. Paul helped save her life. When fire broke out in a three-story home next to Mrs. Paul's resi- dence, Mrs.'Mary McEvoy, 63, tossed her granddaughter Darlene, into the arms of Mrs. Paul who was standing on the porch next door across an alleyway. CAP Wirephoto to The Republican-Herald) Stillwater Drug Probe Leads to Weapons ST. PAUL of reports of drug trafficking at the Stillwater prison reports which turned out to be a to discovery of contraband in the prison and evidence that inmates hold parties in the prison basement with whisky among the refreshments, state officials said today. Jarle Leirfallom, director of public institutions, and John Tier- ney chief of the. State Crime Bureau, reported on the investigation _________i to Gov. Anderson. 1 Bottles of Whisky They said search of the prison turned up such things as three bottles of whisky, a number of knives and cleavers, several saws, one of them a crude hacksaw about 18 inches long, 30 pounds of meat, and such other party food as bread, sugar and pickles. George Young and Joseph Schaefer, of Murder Inc. fame, I serving terms in Stillwater for murder, are reportedly among TODAY National Planning By STEWART ALSOP WASHINGTON President- elect Dwight Eisenhower and Sec- retary of State John Foster Dulles have been honestly appalled by the peculiar way the American gov- ernment arrives at great decisions of foreign and defense policy. They have shared this emotion with virtually everyone who has had personal experience in this field. And they are both determined to do something about it. The most significant proposal for doing something about it which Dulles has discussed with Eisen- hower has never been adequately described. What Dulles has in mind, albeit still rather tentative- ly, is a sort of national policy- planning staff, whose members will spend all their time and ener- gy planning American strategy in the cold war. How Policy Is Made To grasp the significance of this idea, it is necessary to understand j how American policy is now made. It is only fair to say that Presi- dent Harry S. Truman actually did "do something about when he accepted the proposal originated by the late James Forrestal for a those who participated in the parties. Leirfallom said the investigation is continuing to determine how the contraband got into the prison, the source of drugs given investigators by an inmate, and into some other "possibly criminal matters." He said he could give no information on the latter point at this time for fear of hampering investigators. Drug Hoax The inquiry thus far indicates that only one inmate and an un- identified guard are involved in the drug hoax, he .said. He added, how- ever, with relation to the inmate which Parties that "it seems obvious that prison personnel must have had Page 10, Column 7.)

With Loss Of U.S. Money Demands Spies And Subversives Be Driven Out By STANLEY JOHNSON UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. UP) Sen. Alexander Wiley (R-Wis) threatened the United Nations last night with a loss of its biggest chunk of financial from the United States unless something is done to keep sub- versives and spies out of the U. N. Secretariat. But in making his threat, Wiley is slated to head the power- ful Senate Foreign Relations Com- mittee in the new it clear he thinks a major part of the blame for alleged subver- sives still on the U. N. payrolls lies with the American State De- partment. Wiley said in a statement that congressional sentiment is build- ing up to cut off U. S. money for the international organization "un- less adequate security procedures have been worked out to guarantee that the U. N. and its organs do not remain a base for espionage and subversion." More than Third The U S. pays a little more than one-third of the U. N. bills and has contributed 560 million dol- lars to it since 1946. Wiley is serving as a U. S. dele- gate to the U, N. Assembly, but he emphasized that he spoke only as a senator.

National Security Council, all the chief policy-making officers of the government are supposed collec- tively to hammer out an agreed common policy. The National Security Council has been a useful device. The American government has less of a tendency than in the past to pur- sue a half dozen mutually contra- dictory policies all at the same time. But the National Security Council, although it has helped to prevent chaos, has certainly failed ever they needed to endure the winter weather. But the job isn't half finished.

Chinese Reds Take Back Two Korean Hills By SAM SUMMERLIN SEOUL UP) 750 Chinese Reds smashed back to the peaks of Big and Little Nori hills on the flaming Western Front today, only two hours after rugged South Ko- reans captured the strategic heights in a bloody, hand-to-hand battle! Fiercely fighting Chinese swept up the slopes of the two hills in a two-pronged drive shielded by cover of darkness and a devasta- ting Communist artillery and mor- tar barrage. Bloody Counterattacks The valiant First Republic of Ko- rea Division earlier had seized Big and Little Nori, in the sixth of a series of bloody counterattacks in savage, day-long fighting. The Air Force said its pilots flew about 150 separate missions in the general area of Big and Little Nori. Pilots said they hit a huge supply and troop depot that rocked with five violent explosions. Seven fires were started.

"Truman has said some harsh things about Ike but it's my guess that he (Eisenhower) won't make a reply." The President' virtually closed the door Thursday on proposals for a meeting with Eisenhower and MacArthur. He said he believes such a meeting would serve no useful purpose. MacArthur implied last week he had a new plan for peace in In Washington today Sen. Hunt (D-Wyo) proposed an immediate extraordinary session of the Senate Armed Services Committee to look into MacArthur's views. Hunt said he thought Congress should be "informed and consulted" at once if there is any new plan to end the war.

Hunt Wants To Hear MacArthur By G. MILTON KELLY WASHINGTON Hunt (D-Wyo) proposed today an im- mediate extraordinary session of the Senate Armed Services Com- mittee to look into Gen. Douglas MacArthur's views on ending the Korean War.

(AP Wirephoto to The Republican-Herald) discuss Korea. i Truman said, among other things, he doubts MacArthur has hit upon any new way to peace, and that he still thinks Eisen- hower's campaign announcement that he would go to the Korean War zcn? was demagoguery. Arouses GOP Truman's words drew some. GOP cries of "arrogant" and "slander- ous" on Capitol Hill. Hunt, taking no part in that row, told a re- porter: "I would like "to see Sen. Rus- sell (D-Ga) call either or both generals to Capitol Hill to brief the armed services committee." Russell is the committee chair- man who presided over the 1951 Senate investigation of the Presi- dent's firing of 'MacArthur as Al- lied commander in Korea and the Far East. He is out of the city. Hunt said he thought Congress should be "informed and consult- ed" at once if there is any new plan to end the war. "This is not a matter that I believe should wait until new Congress cpnvenes on Jan. Hunt said. "And I am convinced j most members of the committee would be able and more than will- ing to return to Washington on j such an important mission." Support The idea drew support from an- other committee member, Sen. Stennis who said in a separate interview: "I would en- dorse the plan if Sen. Russell sees fit to call a meeting of the com- mittee." Stennis also declined to com- ment specifically on Truman's tart remarks about MacArthur and Ei- senhower, but he said he disap- proves of the the whole mat- ter has been handled. "Someone ought to do some peacemaking and bring these men Stennis said. "There should be no controversy about whether and when to consider any plan to bring this war to an early and honorable conclusion. But equally it should have been dis- cussed secretly and at high mili- tary levels before there was a pub- lic announcement that it might even exist." Eisenhower, Tiow en route back from Korea, has disclosed he in- tends to meet MacArthur in New York soon to discuss what lies behind the latter's declaration of Dec. 5 that "I am confident there is a clear and definite solution to the Korean conflict" without un- duly heavy Allied casualties. 7 Men Rescued In Lake Mille Lacs BRAINERD, Minn. W) Seven men were rescued from Lake Mille Lacs floes late Thursday when the ice broke up while they were fish- ing a mile off Pike Point on the west side of the lake. Edward Ellis, Minneapolis, and Lionel Carpenter, Crystal Village, were thrown into the water when the ice parted. Both clung to float- ing cakes until aid reached them. All seven were brought to shore by a boat crew of five Brainerd residents, organized by Len Crow- ell. None suffered any jll effects. Sheriff Roy Wickland of Crow Wing County, identified the five others rescued as Harold and Ervin Krech of suburban St. Paul; Thomas Walker, Minneapolis, and Conrad Deminsky and John Dolder, both of Oss.eo, Minn. 2 Men Get In St. Paul ST.

HIGKTOWER WASHINGTON Diplomats speculated today that one of Presi- dent-elect Eisenhower's early dip- lomatic moves will be to appoint an ambassador to the Chinese Na- tionalist government on Formosa. The United States has not had an ambassador there since the govern- ment fled to the island in 1949. The White House announced last night the resignation of John Leigh- ton Stuart, 76, who has held the post of ambassador to China since 1946 but has not been active since mid-1949. He then came home for consultation, shortly later became ill and has not returned. Stuart, in a resignation letter dated Nov. 28, said he assumed Eisenhower "will wish to have a completely free hand in selecting diplomatic representatives." HNlth Bad In view of the oft-expressed Re- publican concern about U. S. rela- tions with the government on For- mosa, it is considered probable that the Eisenhower administration will send an ambassador thert shortly after taking office. Stuart told Truman he had not- retired earlier because he had .hoped his health would improve and enable him to return. But his doctors have informed him it may be some time before be is again able to travel great distances, added. Accepting the resignation with "deep Truman expressed hope that Stuart would devote him- self to advancing understanding and friendship between the Amer- ican and Chinese people. The Pres- ident described this as "a cause more urgent than ever in these days when the Communist at Peiping is bending so much en- ergy to the destruction and the fostering of hatred." At the time Stuart came home, it was generally understood the Truman administration would leave the position in a relatively inactive status indefinitely. Nationalist China's hold on the mainland gave way under Commu- nist military pressure in the clos- ing months of 1949, The Truman administration then was against any quick recognition of Commu- nist China and withdrawal of recog- nition from the Nationalists. But it did take the position that the Nationalist regime had been dis- credited throughout Asia and had lost the support of the people in- side China. Mistreatments Subsequent mistreatment of U. S. diplomats and citizens under Red China rule brought a firm resolve not to recognize the Chinese Com- munist regime, and the increasing stability of the Chinese Nationalist government on Formosa brought an improvement in relations with the U. S. However, Stuart's prolonged ill health made it impossible to con- sider his going to Taipeh and indi- cations were that officials here were content to be represented there by a minister rather than an ambassador. Many Republicans, meanwhile, criticized the administration atti- tude toward Chiang Kai-shek's re- gime and urged that the U. S. do more for his government Eventu- ally a military assistance program was undertaken, but it was not until after the Communist attack on South Korea in June, 1950, that Truman declared that the U. S. could not tolerate the possible loss of Formosa. Stuart was chosen for the am- bassadorship by Gen. George C. Marshall while Marshall was try- ing to unify China. Born in China of American parents, be went to school in the U. S. and returned to China as an educator. SHOPPING DAYS LEFT ;
