NO HORSE, BUGGY PROGRAM Look Ahead, GOP Urged fey Warren By JACK BELL SAN FRANCISCO (5V-Gov. Earl Warren of California told Republi- cans bluntly today they cannot "turn the clock back" and expect to win this year's presidential election. Warren, an announced candidate for the GOP presidential nomina- tion, opened his party's national committee meeting with a luncheon speech. He outlined "liberal" platform planks' he said his party must adopt if it expects to get a majority in the November election. "I am convinced the American people are not Socialists and will not tolerate Socialistic government, but they definitely are committed to social Warren declar- ed in a prepared address. "Any party which turns its back on social progress will be repudiat- ed by the people." Warren made no mention of jSen. Bobert A. Taft of Ohio, another GOP presidential candidate. But it was obvious his remarks were di- rected primarily toward national committee members who are back- ing the Ohioan's bid for the nom- ination. Taft Termed Conservative Taft has stood for many "social progress" measures but he gener- ally is accused by most of his critics of representing the so-caD- ed conservative wing of the party. Warren's address keynoted a session at which Chairman Guy G. Gabrielson was scheduled to report ion Republican prospects for the November election. David S. Ingalls, national chair- man of the Taft-for-President com- mittee, will present the Ohioan's case at a dinner tonight. Warren, the 1948 vice presiden- tial nominee, said he believes in trying to carry out party platforms between elections. "I suggest we make it crystal clear to the American people that the things we advocated for their welfare in the platform are still party concerns and will continue to be we do not intend to turn the clock we are not willing to have present-day in- equalities frozen into American the California governor said. He said he doesn't go along with the theory that the people will vote for a change in national govern- ment "for the sake of change it- self." Want Real Program "They want us to present a pro- gram that will make them want to register and vote he said. "We must give them a prac- tical demonstration that we are not interested in a return to the so-called comfortable past of by- gone days, but that, on the con- trary our party is a dynamic, for- ward-looking party, streamlined for the problems of the day." Warren said he thinks the peo- ple want "a thorough reorganiza- tion and overhauling of the federal adding that "the Democratic party cannot do that at this late date." Sen. Lodge Eisenhow- er chairman, challenged the asser- tion that the general can't attack Truman administration foreign pol- icies because he represents those policies as commander of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization forc- es. "Gen. Eisenhower owes the ad- ministration Lodge de- clared. "I think he did them a favor in accepting the NATO com- mand." NEW YORK ffl Capt. Henrik Kurt Carlsen rode up Broadway today amid waves of cheers for his stout courage. Over and over, came the shout: "Well done." It was New York city's rousing salute to a man whose -dauntless love of his ship had made him a hero to the world. Clouds of confetti and streamers of ticker-tape snowed from sky- scraper windows as Carlsen began his journey up the big city's tra- ditional "canyon of heroes." Thousands roared their tribute to the modest, little skipper, who for 15 days defied the storms of the Atlantic in a vain battle to bring his listing and cracked ship, the Flying Enterprise, to shore. Pas- sengers and crew had abandoned her and only a British sailor from a rescue tug had shared the ship's final days with him. Overwhelmed He lost his ship, but won a high place in the annals of sea- faring men. 'I am really completely over the captain said em- barrassedly. "I am completely amazed. I couldn't sleep last night. I realize now how much trouble I stirred up." As the car carried him along the bunting-draped street, he grinned, nodded and gave his shy, wide- ianded wave of thanks. He origin- ally intended to walk the route Dut plans were changed suddenly. There was no immediate explana- ion. Behind him, in another car, rode lis wife, Agnes, tears in her eyes. A platoon of mounted policemen !ed the parade. Then came an Army band, a half dozen other marching units. Navy Men March Directly ahead of Carlsen's car '00 Navy midshipmen marched in quick, cadenced -step. "It seems Carlsen said. It doesn't seem like I quite fit into it. You know, I've never seen one of these things before, except in movies." The procession began at the Bat- (Continued on Page 9, Column 8) CAPT. CARLSEN Congressmen Kill Truman's Tax Hike Hopes No Chance of Increases in Election Year By FRANCIS J. KELLY WASHINGTON Influential Democrats agreed with Republi- cans today that a fourth post-Ko- rean tax boost is practically an impossibility in this election year. At least one important Democrat expressed doubt that Congress would even go through the for- mality of holding bearings on Pres- ident Truman's request for an- other five billion dollars in taxes. B y contrast, the outlook was aright for exten- :ion of the de- fense production act, the basis for price, production and credit con- Tols which was R. L. Doughton the other headliner in the Presi- dent's annual economic report sent to Congress yesterday. One-Year Extension Even here, it seemed likely the President would have to settle or a one-year extension instead of two, and that the might not be tightened up in the ways he recommended. Mr. Truman's recommendation, yet to be detailed in the budget >r a special message, called for an additional load of around five lillion dollars. He said this could >e obtained "by eliminating loop- loles and special privileges, and iy some tax rate Rep. Doughton chair- man of the House ways and means ommittee which originates all tax egislation, observed dryly that there seems to be a strong senti- ment around the country against Vishinsky Raps Van Fleet Says Truce Talks Fail PARIS Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky today called U. S. Lieut. Gen. James Van Fleet a "cannibal" unfit to conduct armistice negotiations in Korea. Vishinsky told the United Na- tions political committee the "unreasonable demands pre- sented by the American com- mand can give no hope for a successful conclusion of those negotiations. "Only he said, could want to leave truce talks in the hands of Van Fleet and other military leaders. Ike's Name Entered in N.H. Primary CONCORD, N. H. Gen.

Passengers of Stalled Train Reach West Coast SAN FRANCISCO Passen ers from the snowbound stream- net, City of San Francisco, came own out of their icy high Sierra rison today. Three and a half days of cold nd hunger and waiting in mile- ligh Donner pass were over for the 96 passengers and 30 crewmen. The refugees rode out on a plush outhern Pacific train. They had made their way a uarter-mile from the trapped leamliner by foot and by weasel nd snowcat to a cleared highway, hen they were taken by automo- ile to a nearby lodge for warm iod and treatment. Stranded Sunday The passengers, stranded from unday noon until late yesterday, oarded the relief train at Emi- grant Gap, about 150 miles north- ast of San Francisco. Broiled steaks and chicken were eady and free, it had been frank- urters and beans for breakfast. Men peeled off three-day growths beard. women changed othes. many just slept. Others sat in the club car and iviewed their experiences. Dr. Walter H. L. Roehll of Mid- etown, was praised by all: "He saved our lives. Don't t him tell you he didn't." Roehll and four nurses, all pas- ngers, worked tirelessly treating i some 60 persons overcome by fumes from a heating unit which was put into service after regular heating gave out Monday. Most of them brushed off the illness. Praise Nurses Aboard The nurses are Mrs. Anne Lind- blom of Beresford, S. D., who works at Modesto (Calif.) state hos- pital; Helen Guertz San Francisco; Margaret Doonan, Stockton, Calif.; and Mrs. Roehll. The nurses finally collapsed after hours of work and were quickly replaced by numerous volunteers from those aboard. Dr. Roehll came out of the train wearing wool socks over his shoes and a stubbled beard. The passengers came out in all dress. Some wore pajamas beneath suits. Some women had wrapped their legs in strips of blanket. Coats were piled on as they moved from the train, which lay almost covered by snow on a canyonside. Ex-Harmony Banker Accused of Misusing Village, Bank Funds Martin Hopes Truman Runs WASHINGTON OT-Sen. Martin (R-Pa) said today he hopes Pres- ident Truman runs for re-electign "because, it would emphasize the reasons we Republicans think he should be retired from office." Martin declared that with Mr. Truman as a candidate "the issues would be drawn as sharply possible and voters could as the de- cide whether they want anoth- er four years like the last seven." The Pennsyl- vanian told a re- porter Mr. Tr man symbolize like no o t h e Democratic nom inee could, th things Repub! Edward Martin cans general! "are crying out against." He adc "As I see it, two of the mai issues of the campaign are extrav agance in government and corrup don in government such as wa disclosed by the House investiga ing committee in the tax scanda cases." Mr. Truman has said he is for a he economy in government consis :ent with sound operation and na ional cases security. As Martin cited, for the ta Mr. Truma iledged in his state of the unio message last week to rout an wrongdoers from the federal pay roll. Martin has not announced hi choice for the Republican pres idential nomination. Trapped By The Worst snowstorm in 50 years, the streamliner City of San Francisco appears amid mountainous drifts as a snow tractor finally worked its way to the marooned train. The 222 passengers and crew, snowbound since Sunday, were rescued Wed- nesday afternoon when highway snowplow made its way to the vicinity. Mr. And Mrs. -Herman Nelson, Albert Lea, Minn., are helped along the trail down from Nyack Lodge at Emigrant Gap, Calif., by a train assistant They were among the stranded passengers on the City of San Francisco.

Misappropriation of from bank and village funds here by a former Harmony village treasurer and bank cashier has been re- vealed. Restitution of the money was made by the treasurer, Horace O. Olson, 54, however, according to a report issued today by Richard A. Golling, state public examiner. Olson signed a statement admit- ting misappropriation of the funds, Golling said in his report which covered an audit of the treasurer's cash accounts for 1949 and 1950 and from Jan. 1, 1951 to July 16, 1951. No charges were placed against Olson, who had been dismissed as cashier of the Harmony State Bank before the embezzlement was dis- covered, and whose office as vil- lage treasurer was declared vacant by council action Jan. 5, 1951. Orrin A. Helle was named treas- urer to serve the remainder of Olson's term. Shortages Found The new treasurer, with assist- ance from the village clerk, dis- covered a sizeable shortage exist- ed in his predecessor's accounts. During the time Olson was treas- urer, village funds were kept at the bank where he worked. "Being an official, Olson found himself in the situation where the same hand that received money for the village also accepted it on behalf of the depository ex- plained Golling in his report. As official custodian of village funds, Olson was in charge of the Harmony financial records too, as well as the records of the com- munity's main debtor, the village bank. "Since he was, in effect, to a large measure accountable only to himself for the business conducted between the bank and the continues Golling, "the temptation to embezzle and conceal the act by manipulating the records ob- viously was great." Olson, Golling said, issued re- ceipts to all persons paying him money for the village and duplicate copies of these receipts served as basic records for deter- mining the former treasurer's ac- countability and liability. "Olson said that all but of the total of amount he admitted misappropriating was actually taken out of the safe at the bank's office in which de- and other money entrusted o the bank were revealed Golling. According to Golling's report, Ol- son said the constituted re- (Continued en Page 9, Column 7) EX-HARMONY WEATHER FEDERAL FORECAST Winona and Vicinity Partly loudy and colder tonight.

Steel, Not Gold Main Need From United States Help for Britain Up to You, He Tells Congress WASHINGTON Prime Minis- ter Churchill pledged to Congress today that Britain will do her part in defending Europe, and will join in a "resolute and effective" re- sponse should new Communist aggression break out in the Far East. In a momentous address to a joint Senate-House session, British leader declared: "We take our stand at your fide." Churchill, speaking slowly from notes, told Congress the British are "very glad" that "you do not allow the Chinese anti-Communists on Formosa to be invaded." And he predicted that in time China would throw off Commu- nism.. By implication at least, these remarks moved British policy "in the Far East closer to that of the United States. Britain has recognized Commu- nist China while this country still recognizes the Nationalist govern- ment of Chiang Kai Shek. In other highlights, Churchill: 1. Said he believes that "by ac- cumulating deterrents of all kinds against the free na- tions and the world will be ablt to avoid another world war. 2. Admonished that the United States should not agree to outlaw- ing atomic bombs under present world conditions. "Be careful, above all things, not to let go of the atomic weapon until you are sure and more than sure that the means of preserving peace are in your he said. In Black Suit, Bow Tie Just before his caution about tha A-bomb, Churchill had said the most "effective deterrent against a third world war" was the "vali- ant resolution" of a well-armed international force, "rather than the awful secret which has been wrested from nature." "Supreme determination" against another war would be the most effective guaranty of victory, he said. ChurchiU, in black suit and a dotted bow tie, delivered his ad- dress from what appeared to be notes. No advance text was given to news reporters. Aimed perhaps as much to the American people as to the legis- lators, the address was carried by all major U.S. television and radio networks. His words also were relayed to Britain and to Commonwealth countries for rebroadcasts. For Churchill, the address was a climactic point to his American journey, undertaken to seek closer understanding and ties with the United States, now that his coun- try had returned him to the lead- ership he exercised during the war. Not Asking Gold The British prime minister hai sought that closer tie in a series of conferences with President Tru- man. They are to have one more meeting tomorrow before ChurchiU leaves Washington on Saturday. Churchill began his address by. saying that all his conferences here were aimed so that "we can do our best for the common cause." r. He said, "I have not come here to ask you for money." But quickly he said that Britain must have American help if it is to meet the defense production goals it has set. "It is for you to he said, how much aid Britain should re- :eive. But whether the United States provide "much or Churchill declared, the British nations will continue to make a maximum ef- fort to strengthen the defenses of. the free world. Of aid, Churchill said had come to the United States to ask "not for gold, but steel, not for favors but for equipment." This is necessary, he not to aid British recovery, in which he expressed confidence, but to assist Britain in its defenses. He does not ask aid, he em- phasized, to "make life more com- fortable" for Britons. Churchill was greeted by thund-- erous cheers when he came the legislators. In the packed-- galleries were diplomats. of many nations. In President Truman-leaving the spotlight of the moment entirely-- to his British visitor, wax not pres--.j ent.
