KWNO-FM VOLUME 50, NO. 89 WINONA, MINNESOTA, THURSDAY EVENING) JUNE 1, 1950 TWENTY-TWO PAGES LIQUOR ARRESTS IN WABASHA COUNTY President Asks Amerasia Red Johnson Request; Link With State Emergency Draft Act Dept.r Charge Senator Knowland Presses for Full Investigation By Marvin L. Arrowsmith Know- land (R.-Calif.) said today a "Red network" ran from the Communist party to the magazine Amerasla and on into the State department. Knowland made the statement in a speech prepared for delivery in the Senate. He expressed his views as new charges and counter-charges highlighted the Senate inquiry into the Amerasia case of 1945. The development included a flat denial by James M. Mclnerney, chief of the Justice department's division, of an assertion by Senator Hickenlooper (R.-Iowa) Mclnerney said there is no truth to a statement by Hickenlooper that documents the government re- covered from Amerasia headquar- ters five years ago included one which showed the wartime location of American fleet units. Mclnerney also denied published reports that certain other highly secret documents were among those seized by the F.B.I. and the old Office of Strategic Services Senator McCarthy Communists-in- government charges touched off a new Amer- isla Inquiry, retorted that he knows "beyond the slightest shadow of a doubt" that the material in ques- tion was seized in 1945 by govern- ment agents. McCarthy added that other docu- ments equally important also were recovered and now are in posses- sion of the Justice department. The Amerasia magazine case broke in June, 1945, after F.BJ. and OSS raids had turned up hundreds of confidential federal papers in the of Defense Johnson pleaded with Con- jgress today to give President Truman power to'draft men into the armed I services in time of emergency. i He won partial support from Senator Knowland who said he is changing his views because of what he called the possibility of an atomic attack on the United i States. Johnson asked the Senate armed services committee for a three year1 extension of the draft act without a House-approved section leaving up to Congress alone when any in- ductions could take place, "If trouble comes, there should be in the commander-iri-chief the power to act immediately without waiting to reassemble Johnson said in expanding on a government reorganization plans. Johnson objected to that. He said the armed forces couldn't move during the waiting period, which is 60 days in the case of the reorga- nization plans. Senator Saltonstall (R.-Mass.) asked Johnson whether he would rather have no draft act than the House bill. Johnson squirmed, but said if it prepared statement he had to such a choice, he would to the committee. Revisions Needed Knowland told Johnson he orig- itake the House bill.

But he said it might take 60 days or more to hold special elections to obtain enough new House members to transact business. Knowland suggested a possible compromise under which Congress could have a on any presiden- tial action to induct to the lawmakers' veto rights on; The House on May 24 passed a bill which continues for two years beyond June 24 the requirement that 18-year-olds register for the draft. Actual inductions, however, would have to be ordered by separ- ate congressional action. The House accordingly changed the name of its bill to the "man- power registration act." There have been no inductions since January, 1949. Atlantic Union Plan Wins Gillette's Aid 'By Sterling; F.

He said it could turn publication, and elsewhere. Six persons were arrested, in- cluding two State department em- ployes Career Diplomat John S. Service and Emmanuel S. and the co-editors of the magazine, Philip Jaffe and Miss Kate Mit- chell. They and Navy Lieutenant Andrew Roth and a magazine writer, Mark Gayn, were charged with conspiracy to obtain illegal posses- sion of government documents. Jaffe pleaded guilty and was fined J2.500. Larsen pleaded no defense and drew a fine. A grand jury refused to Indict Service, Miss Mit- chell and Gayn. The charges against Roth were dropped. In hh Senate speech Knowland said: "In the Amerasia case we find the threads of a network of Communist connected individuals, fellow travel- ers and those who by design or jwhat he called the militaristic Atlantic pact into "a great coalition for world peace." Gillette in an address prepared for the first lunchnon session of a two-day meeting of the Atlantic Union Committee, Inc., said he is 9 Killed, 2 Hurt As Navy Bomber Crashes in R. I. Quonset, R. I.

The fund would finance arms shipments to more than a dozen foreign nations, including Atlantic pact allies, during the fiscal year beginning next July 1. The requested by Mr. Truman is slightly less than the which Congress appropriated last year to help 13 nations rearm against Communism.! Mr. Truman made the request in his; first semiannual report to Con- gress on the handling of the first i year program, which began last fall. Backing up his request, Mr. Tru- man said: "The momentum already gained! must under no circumstances be! lost, because, once lost, it is doubt-! ful that it can ever be recaptured at any cost." Fund Breakdown The President gave this break- idown as to how the new money would be spent: North Atlantic treaty nations This would go for weapcns, a training program and would include spending of 000 for raw materials and machinery needed to boost military production in Western Europe.

The statement was made in a 600 word review of Japan's status under "de facto peace" issued byj the foreign office's public informa-' tion division. This is the first time under the occupation that a Japa- nese government agency has put forth an official view on foreign affairs. Occupation headquarters sources said the statement had not been submitted. They said occupation officials had nothing to do with it. Calling attention to the big power split, the foreign office said: "It is desirable that arrange- ments as similar as possible to those existing under a peace treaty be made with various. countries there- by alleviating as much as possible the impoverished condition of our economy." "It is the hope of everyone that a so-called over-all peace will be con- cluded: but we cannot be so non- chalant as to assert that it would be advisable to hope for overall said he accepted the Atlantic un- ion proposal as a means of turn- ing the military pact into an instrument of peace.

In a crackdown on liquor sales viola- tions in Wabasha county, seven persons were arrested by Sheriff John Jacobs and arraigned before Municipal Judge John W. Lamb Wednesday afternoon and an eighth person this morning. Two persons pleaded guilty to sell- ing liquor after hours and two per- sons for selling liquor before legal opening hours in the culmination of several weeks investigation by two state liquor agents. Fines totaled The liquor agents reportedly gain- !ed evidence leading to the arrests while dressed as fishermen. Enter- ing a tavern before or after closing hours, they would strike up a con- versation with the clerk who was usually in the process of' cleaning I up or getting ready for the1 day's business at the time, Tile conversation usually centered around the best place to fish in the i locality and when the time was ripe [the agent would state he needed a i bottle of liquor to take along fish- ing. In the case of C. E. Buckminster, proprietor of Bucky's Off Sale, Lake City, who pjeaded guilty to selling liquor before opening hours, the sale was allegedly made at a. m., 22 minutes before the state law permits sale of off-sale liquor. Al Jones, operator of the Lake City Taxi Company, '.vas charged with selling liquor to the state agents from his taxi on a Sunday without a license. Additional, warrants, signed by state liquor agents, were issued to Sheriff Jacobs and his deputy, John Held of Lake City, this morning with "arrests' expected to follow this- afternoon and Friday morning. Fined and J3.9C costs each were Hugh Barrick and Francis Mc- Carthy, both of Hammond, Minn., for the sale of liquor after hours while Elmer Funke, Lake City, proprietor of Funke's Off Sale, and C. E. Buckminster paid fines each of and costs. Arraigned for selling intoxicating liquor without a license were Mrs. Adelaide Collins and Julius Bur- richter, both of Reads Landing, Al Jones, Lake City, and Donald Schnell of Wabasha. j 111 WUU1JV..L4, AJik.lAi'Jl -iUITU, UWWUU i" t_LiCJA Ait" in the face of Coimnunist tnreaK. i {rom 5Cene of the acci. against the -international political General area of 1 dent perfidy" of Communism.

The chemical is the sodium salt of an amino acid having the jaw-breaking name "ethyl- ene-diamlne-tetra-acetic acid." Used as a liquid, it is brought to bear on stones in the kidney or other parts of the urinary peace and have the present system! tract by means of a tube called of control continue indefinitely." a, "catheter" which can be in- serted into the urinary passage. Dr. Robert F. Genres of Sacramento, Calif., who won a commendation from the Ameri- can Urological association for his report, said the chemical was less irritating to the patient than others previously employed, and effective against a wider range of kidney stones. He did his research on it while at the Squier Urological clinic, Colum- bia university. He told reporters that while tbe technique still is in an early stage, it offers promise of spar- ing surgical operations in cer- tain cases, and of preparing for surgery certain, other cases which otherwise might be in- operable. In the latter instance, he explained, the method offer- ed promise of reducing very large stones to a point where op- eration could be undertaken.

Each state dental society named a "dentist of the last half century" as that state's most notable con- tributor to tbe advancement of the profession and the dental health of the public. The honor roll also included den- tists who served with the armed forces and the U. S. Public Health service. The state selections included: Dr. Henry Leo Eanzhaf of Mil- waukee, Wis.; Dr. Ernest W. El- men of Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and the late Dr. Alfred Owre, dean of the school of dentistry at the University of Minnesota from 1905 to 1927 and for the six succeeding- years dean of Columbia univer- sity's school of dentistry in New York. Dr. Owre died in 1935. Atlanta Sets Up Jitney Service Atlanta- The city of At- lanta began setting up a jitney service today as a makeshift replacement for trolleys and buses idled for two weeks by a drivers' strike. Atlanta has been without a pub- lic transportation system for its approximately citizens for two weeks. Members of the Amal- gamated Association of Street, Electric Railway and Motor Coach Employes of America (A.F.L.) walked out, demanding an eight- cent hourly wage hike. The current scale for the drivers is 51.35 an hour. The Georgia Power Com- pany said it could not pay the requested increase. The jitney will oe allowed to charge a ten-cent fare, the same fare charged by the trolleys and buses before the strike. When the strike is over, all jitney permits will be voided, said Police Chief Herbert Jenkins. ;
