Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 13, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Colder Tonight; Friday Generally Fair, High of 32 VOLUME 52, NO. 22 FIVE CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, THURSDAY EVENING, MARCH 13, 1952 TWENTY-TWO PAGfS B-29 s Collid e 15 Ab oar Kill See Today's 6 Write-in Vote for Eisenhower Urged in Minnesota Primary MINNEAPOLIS possibility arose to- day of an organized campaign for 'Write-in votes for, Gen. Dwight Eisenhower in next Tuesday's Minnesota presidential primary election. William Holbrook, secretary of Minnesotans for Eisenhower said the write-in drive for the gen- eral was being discussed among leaders of the organization. Holbrook said he hoped to an- nounce plans today. At the same time, Leonard Lindguist, state railroad and warehouse commissioner and an .Eisenhower backer, said'Eisenhower's favorable showing in last Tuesday's New Hampshire pri- mary was a signal for a write-in campaign in Minnesota. "Eisenhower's sweeping victory in New Hampshire is the kind he would have had in Min- nesota if the Stassen forces had not maneuvered Ike's name off the Lindquist said in a statement. Supporters of Harold Stassen have denied they had anything to do with court action which resulted in scrapping Eisenhower filing petitions. "Even in New Hampshire, Stassen stole some Eisenhower Lindquist said, adding, "the people of Minnesota can get them back by writ- ing in the name of Eisenhower when they go to the polls next Tuesday." Space is provided on both Republican and Democratic ballots for write-in votes. However, no write-in candidate can win delegates, because the law provides every candidate must have filed a complete slate of delegates. While a write-in vote for Eisenhower would net him no delegates, it could serve as an indi- cation of his popularity. Stassen and Edward C. Slettedahl, St. Paul school teacher, are the only names on the Repub- lican ballot. Sen. Humphrey-is the only name on the Democratic ticket. Slettedahl has variously supported Gen. Mac- Arthur and Sen. Taft, although when he filed it was as a stand-in for MacArthur.

Warren delegates entered in the Wisconsin primary have announced Eisenhower would be their second choice at the con- vention in Chicago in June. The ex-governor said Warren was "not a stalking horse for any- one" and said there was no agree- ment of any kind between Eisen- hower and Warren. La Follette said the Now Hamp- shire primary demonstrated that the people will not follow the old guard leadership in the Republi- can party. Wedemeyer Hopes For Realistic Foreign Policy ST. PAUL The man who commanded American forces in the China theater during World War declared here yesterday, "it's a fallacy to talk about making Eur- ope strong." "We need a strong America to defend said retired Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer. Ite general called for a "real- istic" American foreign policy. Its goal, he said, should be an end to Worth "indiscriminate, nonselectjve, non- reciprocal aid." Wedemeyer urged a gradual withdrawal of American troops from Korea, replacing them ic troops from Japan, Formosa and the Philippines. Ireland Flooded With Suggestions On Social Arts DUBLIN, Ireland 'Twas a great day for the Irish when Mrs. George Bernard Shaw left to teach them the social graces. They are flooding the executors on how to do it The fund was set aside by Mrs. Shaw, who died in 1943, to teach her bearded husband's compatriots "self control, elocution, deport- ment, the arts of personal contact and social intercourse." According to the executors, the letters flow in like the Shannon and the words are smooth as a flight of larks. But, in a way, the letters are all pretty much alike, added a spokesman: The writers are all convinced they can set Irish feet >ack on the road marked out for them by the saints. That is, of course, if they can just connect a bit of that money. 'Flying Priest's' License Suspended EDMONTON The Rev. Wil- liam Leising, 39-year-old Oblate father known as the "Flying has had his pilot's license suspended for 30 days for over- loading his aircraft and failing to file a flight plan, Canadian offi- cials said today. Father Leising: and three Roman Catholic brothers were'the object of a Royal Canadian Air Force search early this week in Northern Alberta. They were found safe at Fort McMurray, 240 miles north of Edmonton, after the priest's plane ran out of gas and made a forced landing gve miles from the settlement. Kenneth F. Saunders of Edmon- ton, district superintendent of the transport department, in annoanc- ng the license suspension, termed it "most Opens Fight for Full Foreign Aid WASHINGTON admin- istration's first team of diplomatic and defense leaders opened an up- hill fight today for a new .foreign aid program. Four different congressional committees were invited to the in- itial session to hear testimony by Secretary of State Acheson, Sec- retary of Defense Lovett, Mutual Security Administrator A v e r e 11 Harriman and Gen. Omar- Brad- ley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Even before the hearing got underway in the Senate's largest committee room, Sen. MeMahon threatened to raise the touchy political issue of formally inviting Gen. Dwight D. Eisen- hower to return from Europe to testify. McMahon tried to push the Eis- enhower motion through the Sen- ate Foreign Relations Committee Tuesday but the few senators pres- ent delayed his move. Congressmen, including some in- fluential leaders, have been threat- ening to whittle from a few mil- lion to several billion dollars out of- the new foreign aid authoriza- tion. Some of them have singled out a item for "defense support" to Europe, saying this was just "economic aid" under a new dress title. President Truman asked for direct military aid to Europe and said the additional "defense support" funds would en- able European allies to produce many of their own needs.

Truman Cheerful Despite Loss in New Hampshire Newsmen Told Race Will Not Effect Ultimate Decision By ERNEST B. VACCARO KEY WEST, Fla. Truman today hid behind an out- wardly cheerful countenance both bitterness and disappointment' over his stunning defeat in New Hamp- shire by Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee. Intimates told newsmen he has said little even to them of the blow that befell his prestige in Tuesday's Democratic presidential preference primary. They wouldn't talk for quotation. The only official word from Tru- man's vacation camp was Presi- dential Secretary Joseph Short's assertion the New Hampshire de- feat will have absolutely no effect on the President's ultimate deci- sion whether to run again. Some of these intimates privately made no effort to hide their own anger at party leaders in New Hampshire who persuaded the President to allow his name to re- main on the ballot there after he had announced he would ask its withdrawal. The argument apparently was made that the Truman slate of delegates could carry the state. And the President was told the del- egates wanted to make the race. "It is always a mistake when the President is persuaded to do something against his own political one aide said. The defeat in New Hampshire now makes two things more dif- ficult for the President. 1. He may find it harder to bow out, should that be his desire, than he would have before- If there is one phrase which identifies his po- Superfortson Training Trips Over Texas Rancher Describes Collision of Giant War Birds Smouldering Wreckage of one of the two Randolph AFB B-29's which collided in midair 50 miles north of San Antonio, Texas, yesterday.

The New Hampshire upset could make his comeback fight more difficult than it would be bad be kept his name out of the con- test. And it could change the minds of some who have been insisting that he make the race for re-elec- tion. The President's advisers at the same time sought to discount the importance of the turn of events in the New England state. They said it would have no real bearing on the national convention and that there would be no diffi- culty about getting the nomination for Truman if he wants it They pointed out that the Pres- ident didn't make a speech, or send even a message or letter into the state.

AH imaginary Foocf, Clothing Listed As 'Medical Expense' By tD CREAGH WASHINGTON JJ time, as March 15 crept up tin him a, certain taxpayer fell to broodin about the high cbsfri-tO; him. running the .government. And so he looked through th fine print of the tax laws, am there he discovered a loophole. "Medical expense it sail there, including "amounts paid for ie diagnosis, cure, mitigation xeatment, or prevention of disease or for the purpose of affecting 'any structure or function of the body." So, happily, the taxpayer listed such "medical expenses" as: Food Clothing Cigarettes ISO Liquor 200 Rent Television Set 250 The Internal Revenue Bureau, of course, turned him down on aU hese deductions. But he carried he matter to and won out almost every item! Income Zero This reduced his net income, for ax purposes, to zero. And the only flaw in an otherwise lelightful story is that the taxpayer s purely imaginary and so is the court decision in his favor. Both were made up by John P. Hodgkin, a certified accountant for Price, Waterhbuse Co., Philadel- phia, who wrote a tongue-in-cheek piece on the subject in the current issue of taxes, a magazine pub- lished by Commerce Clearing House, Inc., of Chicago. Officials at the Internal Revenue Bureau here were much amused by the article and said they felt sure nobody would take it seriously enough to claim any of the "rec- ommended" deductions all tide, however, takes a more liberal .__, v Food; 'for example, is held be a medical expense because i for the prevention o malnutrition, pellagra and starva tion." Clothing is ruled deductible since it prevents frostbite and and also because the non-wearinf of lead to prolonged in- carceration in the local which would be bad for mental and physical health. Cigarettes? They may, as some magazine articles say, be bad for the health. If so, they obviously are "affecting a function of the as the tax law puts .he law doesn't say the effect on he body has to be favorable. All Disillowed Internal revenue officials said all he items listed in the article have >een claimed by actual taxpayers as medical expenses at one time ir always have been disallowed.

B-29 Superfortresses whose pilots couldn't see where they were go- ing while flying on instruments collided and carried 15 crewmen to their deaths in the hill" of South Texas yesterday. One bomber plunged to earth and shattered, scattering frag- ments and bodies over a area. The other glided down sev- eral miles away, exploded and burned. The planes were on training flights from Randolph Air Force Base here. They were being flown mechanically and the pilot's cab- ins were blacked out, according to Lt. Bill Adams, public information officer at the base. 7 in One plane carried seven men and the other eight, the Air Force base said. The shattered plane crashed on a hilltop on the Gus Krause ranch. The other glided down near small landing strip on the ranch of J. W. Heard, San Antonio oil man. D. C. McDonald, superintendent of a ranch, said he saw the planes flying in formation. Story of Crash He gave this account: "Suddenly one crossed over and apparently clipped the tail section from the other plane. One plane went the other kept on flying on a level keel, with good if.undamaged. No jumped. The plane came in low over a windmill on the Heard ranch, just barely missing it.
