Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1953, Winona, Minnesota Cloudy Tonight And Sunday; Not So Cold NINETY-EIGHTH YEAR. NO. 19 Hurry Hurry You Goodfellows WINONA, MINNESOTA, SATURDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 12, 1953 SIXTEEN PAGES This Cartoon, drawn by Tom May, Detroit Journal artist in 1907, when he discovered a little girl forgotten on Christmas, has been a source of inspiration to Goodfellow organizations since that time. The publication of the cartoon at Christmastime, 1908. prompted the formation of Forgotten clubs, an idea which other cities adopt- ed and converted into Goodfellow organizations. Jueiich Grantee! Execution Stay ROME, Ga appeal has won an indefinite stay of execution for Herbert E. Jueiich, who had been sentenced to die Dec. 30 for the slaying of a U.S. deputy marshal. Judge Frank A. Hooper set the execution date Friday but it was automatically stayed when at- torney Frank A. Gleason filed an appeal notice. The conviction Jueiich will be reviewed by the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, probably next spring. TODAY Why Ike Talked At U. Be a Good Fellow Following is a list of contribu- tions to the Goodfellows fund to 1.00 By STEWART ALSOP WASHINGTON real back- ground of President Eisenhower's decision to make his historic speech to the United Nations is both interesting and significant. There have been all sorts of re- ports that British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill strongly op- posed the speech; that he persuad- ed the President to revise it radic- ally and even that Churchill wrote most of it himself. All this is wholly untrue, The President, of course, had long considered making a candid speech on the atomic threat "pri- marily to the American people." During the week before the Ber- muda meeting the idea of mak- ing such a speech instead to the United Nations and to the world was born. When U. N. Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold cabled the President on Dec. 4 to invite him to speak to the U. N. presi- dential aide C. D. Jackson was ac- cordingly ordered to fly to Ber- muda with the latest version of the much-redrafted "candor" speech.

LOUIS resigned policeman who broke the Green- lease kidnap-slaying case 'says Carl Austin Hall planned to kill j his partner as the one person who could be identified as having a part in the crime. Louis Shoulders, in an exclusive interview with Globe-Democrat re- porter Ted Schafers last night, said Hall told him about the plan Oct 6 the night Hall was arrested. Hall calling Mrs. Bonnie Brown Heady "nothing but a drunken was quoted by the former officer as saying the slaying was planned for Oct. 7, apparently with the same weapon used to kill 6- year-old Bobby Greenlease. Shoulders said Hall told him Mrs. Heady was the one who could be identified as a participant in the crime. The 41-year-old divorcee was later identified as the woman who took Bobby from the exclus- ive Kansas City school. Mrs. Heady has often expressed intense love for Hall and has asked that he be buried beside her in a family cemetery at Mo The pair is scheduled to die i together in the Missouri peniten-! tiary gas chamber early Dec. 18. Shoulders, who faces police de- partment charges for his handling of the arrest, challenged the po- lice board to release a full tran- script of his testimony in the board's inquiry into the case.

Full Apology Asked He emphasized that only a di- rect requestfrom the Communists, coupled with a full retraction the charge, could get the seven- week-old preliminary peace ne- gotiations under way again. Asked if he was going to Wash- ington, he replied: "I don't know."

Dean's walkout ended a 5 hour 45 minute session, the longest since the talks began Oct. 26. The Reds became "ruder and ruder, more and more insulting and more arrogant" as the long session wore on, Dean said. "It was he added, "that they wanted to become so rude and so arrogant as to force discontinuance of the talks."
