NO. 91 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, TUESDAY EVENING, MARCH 9, 1954 EIOHTEIN PAOIS Levander May Run for Attorney General If Burnquist Decides on Senate Race By JACK B. MACKAY I the Senate provided he can get ST. PAUL W. all elements vander, former state director of social welfare, will get strong backing of the Republican party for attorney general if Arty. Gen. Burnquist decides to run for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Sen. Humphrey, the Associated 'Press learned today. Levander is a former Republican state chairman and can get the support of the regular Republicans, in the Republican party. Heavy pressure has been exerted on Val Bjornson, state treasurer, to give up that spot and become Sen. Humphrey's opponent, but it was reported that he has resisted thus far. The situation is expected to be clarified next week when Goy. Anderson plans to announce his political intentions. "I expect to make an announce- wi wiv. i j. cApeut LU mettle aii snnuunce- it was reported, iu the event therelment next Gov.

Making little use of the ice plo attached to the prow of the boat the Fern passed through Lock Dam 8 at Genoa at 11 a.m. Mon day and through Lock Dam 6 a Trempealeau at a.m. today. The existing record for early ar rival of the first boat is exacth Woman Slain At Long Beach, Husband Held a week away. The previous record, March 16, was recorded in 1864, 1934, 1944, 1947 and 1953. And the Fern probably won't en- counter too much difficulty during the remainder of the trip to the Twin Cities. Reports from Lake City indicate that the ice on Lake Pepin was only about a foot thick a week ago and considered to be too thin to permit accurate testing of the thickness. There isn't much prospect for a reversal of the temperatures that would cause the Fern difficulty in the remainder of the trip. No advance notice of another up- stream boat has been received here. The Weather Bureau indicates that although it will be a little colder tonight, warmer tempera- tures can be expected Wednesday. A low of 28 is forecast locally to- night and Wednesday's readings will be around 44. It was 39 at close that he will seek re-election and this, of course, will lead to a determined effort to select the senatorial candidate who will gel an unofficial nod. The Republican party, under its constitution, is pro- hibited from endorsing a candidate before the primary election. Burnquist, who served as gover- nor for three terms and as attor- ney general since 1939, has an imposing record as a vote getter and is considered by old time political leaders to be the man who can outdistance anyone else in an open primary. Gov. Anderson refused to com- ment on a report- that former Gov. Harold E. Stassen may give up his post as Foreign Operations director and return to Minnesota to file for senator. It was Stassen who, while gov- ernor, picked Edward J. Thye as Flanders Says McCarthy Out To Shatter GOP Vermont Senator Sorry Wisconsin Solon Not Present WASHINGTON WV-Sen. Flanders (R-Vt) said in the Senate today that Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) "is doing his best to shatter" the Re- publican party "by intention or through ignorance."

He goes forth to battle and proudly returns with the scalp of a pink Army dentist." This was a reference to Dr. Irving Peress, New York dentist given an honorable discharge from the Army recently despite his re- fusal to answer questions on pos- sible Communist links asked him by Sen. McCarthy, chairman of the Senate Permanent Investigations Subcommittee. McCarthy is in New York today. Flanders noted McCarthy's ab- sence and said be wished McCarthy were here. Although McCarthy's activities have long been a point of contro-j versy within his party, it was one of the first instances in the Senate that a Republican has spoken out so strongly. Flanders, who calls himself a member of "liberal wing" of the Republican party, asked: "To what party does (McCarthy) belong? Is he a hidden satellite of the Democratic party to which he is furnishing so much material for quiet mirth? It does not seem that his Republican label can be stuck on very tightly, when by intention or through ignorance he is doing his best to shatter that party whose label he weans. He no longer claims or wants any support from the Com- munist fringe. What is his party af- Flanders said j found "much to praise and much to deplore in Mc- Carthyism." The praiseworthy part, he said, "is the vigorous and effective house cleaning which it displays." When.the Republicans took over h.e government early last year, Glanders said, "the premises were dirty McCarthy charged into these 'dirty premises with all the energy and enthusiasm of a natural born Flanders continued.

McCar- thy. On his customary pre-break- fast stroll newsmen told Tru- man of the anonymous tele- phone call received early today at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel warning that "something terri- ble" would happen to McCar- thy. The ex-president smiled and jokingly said: "Oh, Pshaw! I don't see why anyone would want to kill him. We'd have no entertainment at an if they killed him." Then, the smile vanished and Truman added soberly: "I don't believe in govern- ment by assassination." The former president added that "the best assassination a politician can get is vote as- sassination." BenHey Reported Improved After Second Operation WASHINGTON Wi Rep. Alvin H.

Nature of his ill- ness has never been officially dis- closed. ian Dulles Calls for United Action To Halt Reds U.S. Gains Ground In Plea for Unity Against Communists CARACAS, Venezuela more Latin-American nations de- clared their support at the 10th [nter-American Conference today of the U.S. plan for united action to halt Communism in this hemis- phere. This made a total of eight countries to throw their weight be- lifld the proposal. Cuba, Panama and Venezuela plumped for the "Dulles Doctrine" at today's session. Brazil, the Do- minican Republic, Paraguay, Hon- duras and Nicaragua indicated their approval Monday. Haiti also called for anti-Red action "not in conflict with the principle of non- ntervention." Panama suggested an amend- ment banning racial discrimination as a means of combatting inter- national Communism. The amend- ment was introduced by Mrs. Cecilia Remon, wife of Panaman- ian President Jose Antonio Remon. Underlining the importance President Eisenhower's govern- ment puts on the issue, Dullei canceled a speaking engagement in Philadelphia tomorrow to con- tinue his personal watch on the progress of his anti-Communist resolution. Discussion of it in the Political-Juridical Committee was expected to take several more days. The U. S. resolution would call for the 21 Americans republics to consult and act jointly against Communist seizure of power in any of the American states, just as they now are pledged to repel jointly invasion by a foreign ag- gressor. It would also provide for disclosure of identity, activities and sources of funds of persons spreading Communist propaganda or traveling in the interests of the Red cause. Mexico submitted an amend- ment to expand such joint action o all forms of totalitarian inter- in the Americas. Launching the committee de- >ate yesterday, Dulles answered Guatemala's demand that he de- "ine international Communism. He described it as "that far-flung clandestine political organization vhich is operated by the leaders jf the Communist party of the So- viet Union." He said one of its aims was to bring parts of the iVestern Hemisphere into its grip. Brazilian Foreign Minister Vic- ante Rao said he would prefer to peak of "Soviet interyentionism" than Communist penetra- tion. He warned that "inter-Ameri- an Ameri- an nation interfering with the af- airs of not be per- mitted to mask under the guise f anti-Communist action.

(m Fuming drivers who wouldn't be caught less the police station to pay a parking fine have found salvation at last in the "Traf-o-teria." The little device, installed re- cently on all parking meters here as an experiment, turns potential nonpayers of parking tickets into law-abiding citizens. Indications are it's going over big with the paying customers. A motorist here receives a park- iflg ticket and an envelope. If he puts the ticket and 50 cents into :he envelope and places it in the Traf-o-teria, an aluminum box at- ;ached to the parking meter, the line is considered paid. Wait 48 hours and the ante goes up to Police Chief Albert Dodd thinks the pay-as-you-drive will be a bonanza in enforcement of.the city's traffic codes. "Used to reflected Dodd, "women were pretty reluctant to come to the station, and they'd give the tickets to their husbands, who chances are, would forget to pay them. Now the women pay better than men." Overtime parking fines collected in the boxes during the first month of "Operation Traf-o-teria" totaled Dodd said, a 135 per cent in- crease over the previous month's take. Conceding that a few nasty notes crop up along with the ticket en- velopes, chewing gum, match covers, and assorted loot when the collecting officers empty the box- es, the chief insisted that so far public reaction has been "auite favorable." ;
