The engineers, firemen and conductors brotherhoods, with a com- bined membership of more than were handed the contract proposal by Presidential Assistant John R. Steelman yesterday after- noon. So were the railroads, and they accepted it quickly. The unions were set for all-day, separate sessions. But they agreed to act as one on final acceptance or rejection. Steelman's proposal, submitted on a take-it-or-leave-it basis, would do these things: No Probe Seen Under McGranery By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP WASHINGTON James P. Mc- Granery, the Pennsylvania judge the President has chosen to clean out corruption in the government, will probably be confirmed as at- torney general of the United States shortly after these words are print- ed. There is still time to note, however, that this event is likely to turn out to be another jolly joke on the American people. The peculiarities of the McGran- ery record have not yet been pub- -alator claus, tying wages to 1. Boost wages for men in yard service by 37 cents an hour, pf which cents is already being paid. 2. Boost wages for men who work on the open is, not in the 2214 cents an hour, 5 cents of which is already in effect. 3. Give the train unions sub- stantially what they wanted on a highly controversial working or operating rule involving crews which take a train through a divi- sional point. 4. Lay the groundwork for a five- day, 40-hour work week for men in the yards who now work 48 hours. 5. Put into effect a cost-of-living Sen. Pat McCarran, carefully clos ed the hearings when the more curious evidence was being given. Sen. McCarran seems to have a fellow feeling for the attorney gen- eral-nominate, which perhaps de- rives from their common friend- ship for Pan American Airways. The oddest testimony, now re- leased on motion of the Judiciary Committee minority, was given by the young Turk Democratic leader of Philadelphia, Richardson Dil- worth. Dilworth and McGranery, admittedly, are old-time political the cost of living. 6. Submit to binding arbitration the disputes over the following two operating rules: The rule gov- erning pay for men on a train which is assigned more than one type of work at the same time: Joy_ and the rule under which a rail- road may extend its switching limits. 7.

Blames Reds for Failure To Win Truce Admiral Joy Cites Vicious, Degrading Lies By SAM SUMMERLIN MUNSAN, Korea Na- tions truce negotiators today ac- cused the Communists of "seeking every vicious means" to block a Korean armistice because of their "fear of the truth." The especially bitter 62-minute session at Panmunjom produced no progress on the lone issue blocking an to do about captured Reds who do not want to return to Communist ter- ritory. The Communists want them back. The truce delegations will meet again tomorrow at 11 a.m. (9 p.m. Tuesday Vice Adm. C. Turner Joy, closing out his last days as head of the Allied truce team, said that in WVz months of negotiations "I have not heard such vicious, degrading propaganda as that thrown at us today." Allied Stand Joy declared the Allied stand that no prisoner be forced to re- turn to Red control is governed by the humanitarian principles of the United Nations. The U.N. Command will not re- pudiate the principles on which the United Nations was founded, Joy added. North Korean Gen. Nam II opened the session by declaring the "public confessions" of Brig. Gen. Charles Colson "have killed j and buried the myth that our cap- tured personnel refuse to be re- patriated." Colson wrote a letter to Red POW's in the Koje Island prison stockade to gain the release of Brig. Gen. Francis T. Dodd, held as a hostage. The letter has since been repudiated by top U.N. officers. The official U.N. communique labelled Nam H's statements "one of the most vituperative outbursts of the armistice negotiations." Nam JQ accused the Allies of "inhumane treatment and murder-1 ous violence" against captured j Reds. Proposal Final Joy reiterated that the Allied proposal of April 28 is "firm, final j and irrevocable." This plan called for the return of of Red soldiers and civilian internees held by the Allies. The Reds in a counter proposal demanded that captured Red soldiers be returned. An Allied screening of prisoners showed that more than half of the captured Reds said they would re- sist Red rule. Joy again offered the Commu- nists the chance to join in re- screening of prisoners.

And at McGranery's re- quest, President Roosevelt allow- ed Russell to leave the country after bail had been posted. This raised with great dif- ficulty from rich members the Clan Na Gael, was deposited with McGranery as surety against Rus- sell's bail bond. Part of the money was transmitted to McGranery by James McGarrity, a Philadelphia chiefta'n of the Clan Na Gael. The rest was handed to McGranery di- rect by a Clan Na Gael officer, James Brislane. Russell left the country, and in 1941, the Clan Na Gael began to ask for its money (Continued on Page 2, Column 5) ALSOPS WEATHER FEDERAL FORECAST Winona and Vicinity Partly cloudy tonight arid Wednesday.

Body of Youth Removed From Ice Crevasse SPIRIT LAKE, Wash. cuers paused on a mountain path last night as a grief-stricken clergyman intoned the last rites of the church'over the body of his son who died in an icy crevasse high on Mt. St. Helens. The youth's 20-year-old Arthur Jessett, slipped into the narrow chasm at the mountain's level while on a climbing trip with three companions Sunday. He lived a number of hours talk- ing to his companions as the slip- ping ice eased him deeper and deeper into the crevasse. Mean- while, climbers fought frantically to rescue him. 75 Feet Deep Late yesterday, expert mountain climbers were lowered 75 feet into the frigid tomb and recovered the young University of Washington student's body. The father, the Rev. Thomas E. Jessett, met the somber party as it descended through fog and rain to this mountain lake in Southwest Washington. He opened the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer and read in a strained voice: ''Into thy hands, 0 merciful Sa- vior, we commend the soul of this thy servant, now departed from the body Then the father dropped to his knees, faced the sky and cried: "My son! My son! My He rose and shook hands with each of the eight ski patrolmen who had recovered the body. Dropped By Ropes Two of the rescuers, Jim and Louis Whittaker, twin brothers from Seattle, had been lowered by ropes into the crevasse. They said the body was wedged tightly be- tween the walls of ice. They cut the ice away and the body was raised by ropes. Dr. Otto Trott, who was with the ski patrol party, said the boy had been dead about 12 hours, i died of exposure. Young Jessett apparently had been able to break his fall only 35 feet beneath the surface snow. But-he had the only rope in the student party with him, making immediate .rescue impossible. As his companions desperately sought aid, he sank lower and lower. Tru man Beli leves Smiling President Truman introduces Gen. Matthew Ridgway, right, to Major Gen. Frederick A.

Housewives can expect increases soon on a large variety of other foods. The Office of Price Stabilization said it was granting the higher I prices on vegetables, fruits and juices to compensate wholesalers for "markedly lower earnings.'' j Under this order come canned corn, green beans, peas, tomatoes, tomato juice, canned fruit cocktail, pineapple, peaches and pears. OPS said most independent stores will be affected but few chain stores will be, since they normally buy direct from pro- ducers rather than from whole- salers. Plan Ike Welcome Abilene Hopes for Good Day June 4 By JAMES E. LAWSON ABILENE, Kan. wonder what kind of weather we'll have June That's the big question to the residents of this Central Kansas town who are getting ready for the mammoth homecoming of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, potential Republican presidential candidate The Weather Bureau comes up' with a sporting answer. "Five to one it'll be a fine commented a bureau spokesman at Kansas City. "But when it does rain in these parts that time of year, brother, it can rain." The people around here 'are more curious about the kind of day it will be than they are about what the general will have to say at his homecoming speech. During a two-day celebration starting June 4, the five-stsr gen- eral will lay the cornerstone for a museum to house his war trophies. The structure is going up on ground adjoining the old Eisen- hower family home, where Ike grew to manhood. Raids at U. of M. At Left, Charles A.

Harassed police were caught between raiders and the beleagured girls in the dormitories. Similar collegiate outbreaks have occurred at other schools in the nation. Apparently, some persons believe, the spring revolts repre- sent the students' way of letting off steam before final examina- tions. At Minneapolis, some 500 Uni- versity of Minnesota men students raided three women's dormitories but the raid netted only four bras, four pairs of panties, and a silk slip. sorties, part of a national springtime outbreak, were control- led in about an hour by Minne- apolis policemen. "This marks the end of the era of the business-like GI students; we are back into the age of the high school com- mented a dean. He recalled that in the 1920s such youngsters were eating goldfish. There was little vandalism and only one student was held by po- lice. Officers put Gaynor B. Frye, 21, Slayton, Minn., into a squad car when they found him letting air out of tires. Officers were equipped with tear gas. A fire engine was also sum- moned. But its hose lines were idle as students hesitated before the threat of a drenching. The raiding students pushed about to the accompaniment of screeches and squeals from the several hundred dormitory resi- dents. Some University of Conn- ecticut students at Storrs, Conn., milled around the sorority quad- rangle in another pantie raid. Girls retaliated by dousing boys with buckets of water. At Newark, Del., some 250 male students stormed eight coed halls on the University oC Delaware campus. Girls at one house fought back with a fire hose. Red POWs Clash With Guards At Pusan Camp SEOUL, Korea Communist prisoners of war in Pusan clashed with their United Nations guards today. One prisoner was killed and 85 were wounded. Gen. James A. Van Fleet, U.S. Eighth Army commander, an- nouncing the incident, reported one American guard suffered min- or injuries. Half the prisoners' injuries were minor. Van Fleet said. The announcement said no shots were fired during the battle.

Presi- dent Truman said today the Krem- lin's desire to dominate the world is obviously unchangedr "but I be- lieve we are well on the way to preserving our freedom without paying the frightful cost of world war." "The plain fact Truman said, "that the Communists have utterly failed in their objectives in Korea. "The Communist aggression fail- ed to shatter the United Nations. Instead, the Communist attack has made the United Nations stronger and more vigorous and has demon- strated that it can and will act to defend freedom in the world." He added: "But we must alto be and ready to meet treachery or a renewal of aggression if that should come." If it should come, the President said, the Communists will run against a solid wall of free world the growing might (A reoroodcost of Truman's- West Point address may be heard locally over KWNO AM and FM at 7 p. m.) of this country and its new atomie_ weapons in the key defense posi-" tion, Truman's .speech was prepared for the 150th anniversary convoca- tion of the U.

Douglas went on to say: "Many presidents, including the present one, have demonstrated that those words in the Constitu- tion mean what they say." Fresh from a conference with Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, who called at the White House soon aft- er flying into Washington from To- kyo on his way to succeed Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower as supreme commander in Europe, Truman spoke at unusual length about the Korean truce negotiations. He declared as firmly as ever that this country will not accept the Red demand for repatriation of all captured Communist soldiers whether they want to be repatri- ated or not. "It would be a betrayal of the ideals of freedom and justice for which we are the Presi- dent said, "if we forced these men at bayonet point to return to their ex-masters. "We won't do it. Won't Buy Armistice "We won't buy an armistice by trafficking in human slavery." Truman said it may not be known for some time whether the Communists will back down on this apparent indication that he does not expect the truce negotiations to break off in the near future. Then he added: "We shall remain ready to reach honorable settlements by peaceful means." Truman said the Reds have built up their strength in men, tanks and planes since the truce talks began almost a year ago. But this country, too, has con- solidated and increased its strength, he said. And with Amer- ican rearmament booming and anti-Communist forces growing stronger in both Europe and Asia, he said, 'there is a generally im- proved situation in the world. Truman cautioned against any relaxing or letting up in the West- ern defense effort. Likewise he de- he has repeatedly in> recent threats in Con- gress to cut his military and for- eign aid budgets, Keep Guard Up While the free world is well on the way to preserving its freedom without a world war, he. said, "no one should assume that the pos- sibility of war has become re- mote." The free nations, Truman must work for peace "in the face of a concerted campaign of threats and sabotage and outright aggres- sion directed by the Soviet which makes the situation of the rest of the world "dangerous in the extreme."
