Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1948, Winona, Minnesota w EATHER tonljcht and Hilndity; cooler icmljrht. IS HERE Dial 97.5 for the Best In Radio Full Leased Wire Newi Report of The Associated Press Member of the Audit Bureau of VOLUME 48. NO. 76 W1NONA. MINNESOTA. SATURDAY EVENING. MAY 15. 1948 FIVE CENTS PER COPY FOURTEEN PAGES THE ALSOPS Union of Non-Reds Suggested My Joseph Al.iop WnshlnK'on Curiously little attention Is being to the re- solution Just presented to tho Se- imto by Arthur H. Vandenberg of Michigan. Yet this paper Is In fact intended ns the legal foundation for tho political nnd military organ- ization of tho non-Soviet world. Outwardly, of course, tho Vnn- clonbcrg resolution Is seemingly filmed to meet tho demand for a more effective United Nations. But tho resolution's real heart JIcs in tho clauses covering American sup- port for regional associations under Articles 51 to D'l of the U. N. char- ter, Tho Immediate purpose is to prepare for a closer, more formal relationship between this country find the Western European union for tho formation of the Atlantic community, in short, which Is the next great step ahead. A resolution which had this pur- pose only was Senator Vandenberg's original project. The remaining passages of tho resolution, relating to othor U, N. problems, were ncldec when the curious movement emerged In the Senate to secure world peace by Ineffectual amendment of the tragically Ineffectual U. N. But It Is moro worth noting that In tholr present form, the key clauses of 'the Vandcnbcrg resolution arc not limited In their effect to TJ, Western European relationships. THESE CLAUSES'AHE capable of eventual extension to other re- Klonal associations, which might tie tho whole non-Soviet world Into n single loosely but effectively inte- grated grouping. This is especially significant, In view of tho opinion of somo of tho wisest American policy makers as yet a minority that this kind of natural Inte- gration of tho non-Soviet sphere must bo tho great long-rango goal, ns the only sure way to preserve permanent pence. In short, tho Vandcnberg resolu- tion Is nn historic document. It can nlso bo tnkcn ns tho text for n. sort ot sermon on what is good nnd what Is bud In tho American system. Thcro Is much. In tho first place, on tho credit side. THE KEY CLAUSES of the Van- dcnberg resolution represent ft mar- riage between tho work done in the State department, on tho legal as- pects of an alliance or other re- lationship between this country nnd western Europe, and tho work done by Senator Vnndcnbcrg on his ori- Klnnl resolution. Tho marriage scorns to have been formalized at the Blnlr a few dnys ngo, between Secretary Mnrshall. Under Secre- tary Lovctt, Senator Vnndenbcrg and John Foster Dulles, Moro important still, tho resolu- tion nlso illustrates tho old rule for Two Dead in Collision at Chatfield Guard Clears South St. Paul Streets 2 Saved From Flooded Mine; Search Continues for Third Shamokln, Pa. W> Grimy, bedraggled and sleepy, two ex- hausted miners were rescued today from a flooded coal pit. They were trapped Tuesday after- noon by water .rushing in from n nearby abandoned mine. Edward Heck, 42, and Peter Gor- ton, 35, both of Shamokln, were taken to Shamokln state hospital for their first food In more than SO hours, then bathed and put to bed. Both were physically un- harmed. They said they believed their companion, Charles Bashore, 42, was trapped in the lowest part of the mine by the Inrushlng waters and had no chance to escape. But rescue workers continued the long task of bailing out tho water- logged mine in the flickering hope Bashore might still be alive. 'Mlracels sometimes happen In Bayonets Used To Drive Back Surly Crowd Mob Boos as 25 Cars of Workers Enter S.wift Plant South St. Paul, Minn. A wedge of 600 national guardsmen, w for mining, blasted a passageway hclmeted and with bayonets fixed, into a nearby abandoned working, SWept the streets clear of an unruly said one weary worker. Heck, Gorton and Bashore had gone to work Tuesday morning In the small independent pit which they had carved into' the side of a 600-foot mountain. At noon Tues- day, Heck nnd Gorton told reporters, they ate their lunches and drank most of the water they had carried with them. They were 175 feet underground late in the afternoon when an ex- plosive charge, set off to loosen coal Water in the abandoned pit came flooding into their operation, trap- ping them at a high point on a heading off the main shaft. Both Gorton ar.d Heck said they had remained dry through the long wait, and kept alternately tapping on the coal vein to tip rescue workers they were olive. Judging American policy, that "we never don't do what we can't not do." It is n KlRfintle new departure from former traditions to prepare to Join such a grouping as the pro- Jectrcl Atlantic; community, even in tho strictly limited way author- ized by tho Vnnclenbci'K resolution. There was much hesitation on this head, us the text of the resolution clearly discloses. But tho world situation rendered organization of the non-Soviet sphere for defense and security an Impelling, vital necessity. The United States must oi'Kiiiilxo for defense and security, or In tho end see Us whole foreign policy frustrated nnd defeated. To this stimulus, our policy makers luivo responded. On the debit side, however, there aro also points to be noted. In the first pluce, Einy country with n lew cumbersome government would hrive responded Immediately and decisively to tho challenge of Western Kuropeiin union. Instead of beini; u sluiclow In the future, Amrt'lciiti participation In the At- lantic community would now be a fuct. J1VT blpurtlwm for- clKii pulley permits this country to net, It does not allow quick action. The Vmidenberc resolution's cau- tious, preliminary diameter Is a symptom ot this. Then too. the odd duality between House ami Senate Is mu'fclnc trouble. While the Van- {lenbei'K resolution Is now before the Semite, the House foreign affairs committee is holding homings on a parallel project of Its own, which bctrun ns soon us the Blair House meeting suggested to the moro Jeulous House members that the Senate have something 5 Lake City Firemen Hurt WhenTossedOffSkidding Truck on Country Road lake City, Lake City volunteer flromon_________ are In the hospital here with serious injuries received when a cd by more than a score of military _. o-ffoT'nnnn snlriiprs TTlOVRri crowd, estimated at 500 persons In front of the strikebound Swift and Company packing plant here today. The troops were formed as the crowd gathered to boo and shout catcalls as workers entered the plant through lines of guardsmen. Colonel Lester Hancock, troop commander, ordered the formation an hour atter reading a proclama- tion to the crowd from a sound truck. Hancock said through the loud- speaker that any assembly of more than four persons over a large area of downtown South St. Paul would considered unlawful. Workers Enter Plant The guardsmen held back a surly crowd of about 500 persons as auto- nobiles containing workers follow- swervlng fire truck tossed them into the air Friday afternoon. The truck, driven by Rollle Roschen, slipped partly oft a country road about ten miles north of here while en route to a fire at the George Dose farm. The flro had been extinguished when the truck arrived. Injured and in the hospital are John Klindworth, who suffered a se- vere scalp wound when he hit the ground after flying through the air; Emery Wohlers, severe cut on leg, facial cuts and bruises and a broken nose; Lowell TerBorch, crushed left knee and facial Peter- son, fractured left-shoulder and ribs, and Ben Simons, fractured vertabrae. Coast Guard Probes Weak SOS Call San Const Guard cutters, a flying boat and two- B-17 rescue planes raced to a point off the northern California coast to- day whore an early morning SOS called for help for a vessel "sinking rapidly" after hitting a mine. The identity of the vessel was tin- certain. Tho Coast Guard said tho radio call letters were those of the William E. Channing, a Liberty ship. But the Channing was retired to the maritime commission's reserve fleet at Astoria, Ore., last Tuesday, and Captain E. E. Thornc, In charge of tho "moth balled" vessels, said to- day she was "In her berth." X-Ray Kcveals Injury Simons was first treated for minor cuts and bruises, but when ho de- veloped a pain In his back later in the evening he was X-rayed and the more serious Injury was discovered. Poor b'rakes were suggested as a cause of the accident. The truck, 25 vehicles soldiers moved into the strikebound Swift and Company packing plant this morn- ing. Guardsmen broke up one scuffle quickly when a man In the crowd attempted to seizo a soldier's rifle. Persons in the. crowd shouted boos, curses and catcalls. Some sang the national anthem mockingly. A small detachment of guardsmen on duty when the first automobiles of workers started moving into the plant were quickly reinforced.. More than 25 "automobiles loaded with workers moved into the plant in quick succession. The crowd lin- ing the edge of Grand avenue near the Swift plant entrance shouted threats and surged forward as the workers drove by.

Klindworth and Simons .were Tho SOS was received by the riding on top of the hose; TerBorch Coast Guard, Navy and Federal and Wohlers were on the left front Communications commission stations along the coast. It was weak and garbled, the Coast Guard said, and there was a possibility of nn error in tho call letter. On another tack, the Coast Guard dispatched a man to Astoria to de- termine whether the Channlng's ra- dio transmitter had been used in the :ast few hours, perhaps by someone sending a false SOS..

Private Lake City cars following the firemen j took the injured to the hospital, the truck continued on its way to the Dose farm, only about a mile away. Also on the truck, besides the in- jured and Driver Roschen, were John and Russell Zlllgltt, Woodrow Key and Forrest Boss. Mr. Dose turned in the alarm Drive Crowd Back Guardsmen, their bayonets at point, drove the crowd back. Within a. few minutes, a large j convoy of National Guard trucks loaded with troops, moved Into the plant. The crowd roared opposition and many gave simulated Nazi salutes as the trucks rolled by.

Biggest Buying Spree-Since !29 Hits Market New greatest flood of buying orders since 1929 swept into the stock market today on top on Friday's sensational advance. The exchange was forced to use its emergency system of "flashing" prices from the trading floor to give an up-to-the-minute picture of the market. The high speed ticker tape fire, lagged as much, as 15 minutes hind actual trading. The "flash" prices were mostly a shade higher than reported on the proclaimed by Mr. Truman late yesterday. His action came almost-------------------------- immediately after the Jews had proclaimed the birth of their nation in the Holy Land. Mr Truman stressed the desire ot the TJnited States to obtain truce In- the Palestine dispute be- tween Arabs and Jews. Tel Aviv Bombed The Jewish army Haganah an nounced today that "invasion troops" have penetrated Into Israel following air attacks on Tel Aviv and a settlement in the Negeb area. Tel Aviv, temporary capital of the state newly born and recogniz- ed by the United States, was at- tacked twice by light planes. The planes dropped bombs and strafed ground objects with machine gun tape. Generally prices were up a few cents to more than a share. Orders came in from all over the country. Huge blocks of stocks changec hands with Increasing frequency and lashed the trading floor into fren- zied activity as shouting brokers ex- ecuted the orders. The 1929 boom atmosphere was back again.

Three of four fishermen were drowned about 10 a. m, today when their boat capsized in heavy waves on Woman lake 12 miles east here. Sheriff J. Elmer Johnson of Cass county said the three victims were: Wnrren Adams, Jackson, Minn., at- torney; Carvel Adams, St. Paul, and a third man as yet unidenti- fied. Clem Hackel, St. Paul, clung to the edge of the overturned boat and was saved. The sheriff said he had suffered so from exposure he could "not give details of the mishap nor the name of his -unidentified com- panion. None of the bodies had been re- covered at noon, the sheriff snid.

The "battle of the blockade" was laid yesterday In the little Columbia river town of Cascade locks near Bonnevillo dam. The chartered buses of the two candidates crossed paths but without a meeting of the cam- paigners. Dewey's bus nosed its way around a photographers' truck par- tially blocking the highway, and continued on toward Portland. Stassen, behind schedule on his way to the Dalles, was busily sign- top: autographs for the small crowd gathered in the roadway. He smiled broadly as Dewey's bus edged past and disappeared. Dewey also smiled from his win- dow and waved at disappointed on- lookers. Friends Speaker i to Be at Mabel Mabel, Minn.

Wallace today were defeated in their efforts to take over the Dcmocratlc-Farmer- Labor party in Minnesota, returns from yesterday's county conventions showed. Party regulars prevailed over back- ers of the third party presidential candidate in all but five Hennepln, Ramsey, St. Louis, Swift and Polk. In all these, two separate conven- tions were held by the right and left wing groups. Officers must decide later which of the two slates of del- egates to seat at the upcoming state convention. Typical of the meetings elsewhere was the Nicollet county session at St. Peter. Mrs. Florence Frederick- son, county chairwoman, said dele- gates chosen were "100 per cent anti- Wallace."

No one was taking any that _ an Egyptian pilot taken captive. The Haganah announcement gave no details on the reported ground invasion nor on the air attack against a settlement in the Negeb, the southern desert area. (An Egyptian communique said Egyptian planes bombed Tel Aviv's military airport, wrecking the hangar and one DC-3 plane on the ground. The bulletin declared an Egyptian army column crossed the border Into Palestine this morning and destroyed the Jewish colony of Al Dangor with artillery. An earlier communique said another column was spearing toward Gaza.) 3 Hours Apart The Jewish army said the two at- tacks on Tel Aviv came three hours apart, shortly after Jews had danc- ed in the streets at news of the birth of their nation and the Amer- ican recognition of its existence. The Jewish army drove north In Galilee to bolster the area against possible invasions from Syria, and Lebanon. Haganah announced the entire population of Kfar Etzion settle- ment, south of Jerusalem and Beth- lehem, has been wiped out by the Arab legion. Men and women alike were slain, the Jewish army said.

The government Imposed censor- ship, informing correspondents they will be given "security guidance" on Information sent out on the air attacks, Haganah rushed Its troops to all the frontiers, bent on short- ening lines and building up de- fenses against invasion. An emergency meeting of the United Nations security council was called today to consider an Egyp-l tlan government note that tian troops are entering Palestine. Trans-Jordan's Arab legion was reported by Haganah to be shelling three eastern settlements along the Jordan valley border. A dispatch from Jericho said King Abdullah's Trans-Jordan legion entered Pal- estine across the Allcnby bridge and took control of a large area of the Judean hills. This area Is outside the United Nations boun- daries for the Jewish state. Father Flanagan Of Boys Town Di ies in Berlin Berlin Monsignor Edward J. Flanagan, known throughout the world as the father of Boys Town, died at an Army hospital today after a heart attack. He had been inspecting facilities in Germany for the youths he loved so well regardless of nationality. The 61-year-old Nebraska priest famed for his credo "There is no such thing as a bad boy" was stricken last night at Harnack house, an American military govern- ment residence for visiting officials. Rushed to the 279th station mili- tary hospital, he failed to respond to oxygen and special heart in-! lections, physicians said. He died at p. m. Friday. Catholic Army Chaplain Emmltt I. Walsh administered last sacra- ments at the lamed priest's bed- side when death came. Father Walsh said he "died peacefully and to prayer." Father Flanagan, who has cham- pioned the cause of underprivileg- ed boys for more than three de- cades, went to Vienna last March to study Austrian youth conditions. During his tour he was received in Borne by Pope Pius XU. Later he came to Germany at the invitation of the U. S. Army. In 1947 he made a similar mission Japan. The Nebraska priest founded his world renowned home for needy boys in. 1917 on the outskirts of Omaha. Originally it was a little house which he rented by borrowing in the Christmas season. Boys Town has since grown Into n, busy community. Incorporated in 1936, it Is now listed In the U. S. postal guide. Fire Hits Duluth Parts Co.

Washington President Truman today vetoed legislation providing for an F.B.I. checkup on the loyalty of presidential appointees to the Atomic Energy commission. Sir. Truman said the bill "is wholly unnecessary and unwise." He also called it "an unwarrant- ed encroachment of tbc legisla- tive upon, the executive branch." Car Carrying Orchestra and Truck Crash Two Other Members of Rochester Band Seriously Injured Chatfield, Minn. (Special) Otto Stock, 53-year-old leader of a Rochester orchestra, and an 18- year-old musician. Michael Hoover, were killed today about 2 a. m. when their seven-passenger car collided with a Chatfield farm truck. Two other members of tho orches- tra, arc in serious condition at St. Mary's hospital, Rochester, Injured arc John Starin, 42, who has a knee and ankle fracture and serious lace cuts, and Rowland Fosburgh, 35, who has deep scalp cuts. Three others, Clarence King, Lowell Darling and Clayton Tlede, escaped with minor injuries. Dr. T. O. Wellner, Rochester, Olmstcd county coroner, said that an inquest was planned for 3 p. m. today. Killed Instantly He said that it appeared to him that Stock, leader of the Rythym Kings, and Hoover had apparently been killed almost instantly. Stock was the driver, and Hoover sat di- rectly behind him In a Jumper scat. The entire top of the car was torn off, remaining attached only at the rear. Driver of the truck was Jerry Pease, 21, and Raymond Holets, Chatfield, sailor homo 011 leave, was a passenger. Their injuries were minor. Holets, however, was still at the hospital this morning. Pease was not held, although, he was to appear at the inquest. The accident occurred about a mile, northwest ot Chatfleld on highway 52, as the orchestra was returning to Rochester alter play- Ing at ft dance in Caledonia. Pease, driving his father's, truck, was returning to his farm home Just south or Chatfleld. Sherlir Gerald Cunningham, Ro- chester, said that it appeared to him that the collision, not quite head-on, occurred at about the center of the roadway. Study Truck's Path He added that the truck's path showed skid marks, indicating an effort to avert the collision. Preliminary Investigation, saw the sheriff, indicated that the t.uck, after colliding with the car, "made a circle in the air" and laiided in the ditch at the right hand side of the road after knocking down about seven guard rail posts. Cunningham said Uiat the acci- dent occurred in a, straightaway. The empty truck was a 1947 model with a grain and stock rack com- bination. The bodies and the injured were taken Rochester: the damaged vehicles to chatlicld. Weather FEDERAL FORECASTS Winona and tonight and Sunday. Cooler tonight. Low to- night 45; high Sunday 68.
