Harry Moore, 73, .New Jersey's only three-time governor, suffered a stroke and died today while driving his automobile near here. The car nosed into a ditch and came to a halt after Moore was stricken. His wife, riding with him at the time, suffered undetermined injuries and was taken to the of- fice of a nearby physician. Moore, a Democrat, was elected governor in 1925, 1931 and 1937 under the asgis of Frank Hague, then state Democratic political boss. In those days state law did not permit a governor to succeed himself. He was elected to the U. S, Sen- ate in 1934 but quit midway through his term to run for governor again.

JOHN J. GREEN Spins Dandy Yarns of Early Days W W John Green, Hokah Pioneer, 100 Today HOKAH, Minn. J. Green is 100 years old today. _ He is happy these days to sit with his pipe in the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ann Stohlfu, and spin dandy yarns of pioneer river years and railroading in the Midwest. But his cheerful disposition and i ready memory belie his 100 years. i Green was born in New York City in that portion of the city now known as lower Manhattan, the son Crescent and later to Hokah. Young Green, then 17 years old, started work as an engine wiper in the 'of Mr. and Mrs. Joshua Green.

Green's first engine was a wood- burner, and he can relate many a story of cold endured on long rides to Austin when only a canvas flap held out Minnesota winter. He was the first engineer to drive a loco- motive over the Mississippi rail- road bridge after it was complet- ed. Jan. 1, 1874, Green married Mary McKinley at La Crosse. John and Mary made their home at La Crosse for a short time, but returned to live at Hokah until he went to work for the Minneapo- lis and St. Louis Railroad follow- ing labor trouble here. Later he was employed on the Canadian Pa- cific Railroad when a line was in process of construction to the West Coast. Still later he was an engi- neer for the Wisconsin Central, now a prirt of the Soo Line, and the Greens lived in Waukesha. He Fourth C119 Crash in 11 Days Takes 8 Lives Flying Boxcar Burns in Muddy Montana Field BILLINGS, Mont. W) The fourth crash in 11 days of an Air Force C119 Flying Boxcar claimed eight lives yesterday when one of the huge transports crashed and and burned in a muddy field 12 miles east of this South-Central Montana city. The. eight deaths raised to 91 the number of servicemen killed in Boxc'ar crackups since Nov. 7. Four of the dead in the Montana crash burned to death when the two-engined craft plowed into the ground while attempting to make an emergency landing. Four died of injuries. Eight others, including the pilot and co-pilot, were rushed to two Billings hospitals. Attendants said two were in critical condition. The Air Force withheld identifi- cation of the dead. Bound from Edmonton, Alta., Canada, to Denver, the plane crashed in cloudy weather but visibility was good. Civil Aeronautics Administra- tion investigators said propeller trouble apparently caused one motor the transport to shake loose. The Air Force in Washington said it has no intention of ground- ing the C119s "unless a pattern of mechanical failure is estab- lished by .accident investigations." A reserve officer said reports the transports are "not suitable" for arctic operations have'been on file with the Air Force since last April. Maj. William H. Jay, former commander of the 65th Troop Carrier Squadron, said he and an- other squadron commander filed the reports. Now a commercial airline pilot, Jay said the reports recommended the Boxcars be re- placed by C54s and C124S. Another report, Jay said, was submitted by Maj. Ned M. Letts, now with the 77th Squadron on duty in Alaska on operation Warmwind. Jay said both reported serious difficulty in operating the planes in arctic weather. An Air Force spokesman said no report on the C119s being un- suitable for arctic operations had been released. A C119 smashed into an Alaskan peak Nov. 7, killing 19 men. An- other vanished with 20 aboard in Alaska Saturday, the same day a Flying Boxcar crashed in Korea, killing all 44 aboard. 5 Die When Car Plunges Into River snatched became so frightened he! was transferred to Fond du Lac in has returned most of the. money to 1900, and worked out of that city his victim. until his retirement in 1915. Mrs. Wilma Gardner, 58, a wi- dow, lost her life savings last week when a teen-age purse- snatcher beat and robbed her. Postoffice officials notified Mrs. Gardner Monday that four letters on which postage was due were being held for her. There was 870 in the four envelopes. In one was a penciled note. It read: "I was just as scared as you were. I never expected to find that Mr. and Mrs. Green returned to Hokah with their son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence and made their here. Mrs. Green lived to home be 94 years old. She died in March, 1947, two months after they had cele- brated their 72nd wedding anni- versary.

A family dinner is scheduled to honor the 100-year-old Sunday. The immediate family and close rela- tives have been invited. Green's family includes his daughter, Mrs. Stohlfus; a granddaughter, Mrs. Edward Conrad, Brownsville; two grandsons, Donald, La Crosse, and John, at home, who recently re- turned from Korea. He has six great grandchildren, Sherry, Mar- garet and Robert Conrad, Browns- ville: Stephan, son of Donald, and Shirley and Marie Stohlfus, daugh- ters of John.

Open house for friends was scheduled this afternoon at the Stohlfus borne here. EVANSTON, Wyo. W) Three boxers, their manager and train- er, all from Denver, died today when they lost their way, took a side road and drove their car into Bear River. Sheriff Frank Narra- more said the vehicle landed up- side down in the shallow stream. He said the men were not drowned but, unable to break out of the closed car, died of exposure. i Only one man of six in the returning to Denver after perform- ing Monday night in Salt City survived. He was Jimmy McDonald, listed in fair condition. Narramors named these as dead: Joe Levinson, 47, the manager; James Howard Bealer, 44, the trainer, and these fighters, George Harvey, 21; Garfield Sisneros, 28, and Freeman Edward Lofton, 21. Narramore said the car missed a bridge and plunged kito the stream. McDonald was knocked out by Kid Leon, a Salt Lake City mid- dleweight, in the Monday night fight program.

PAUL UPl Minnesota's re- ceipts from all sources jumped about 22 million dollars over 1951 in the third quarter, State Auditor King reported Monday night. King said the state debt also had shown an increase of since June 30, standing now at 489. Of this total, is pay- able from property tax revenue with the balance coming from spe- cial sources.

United Nations delegates gave a cool but studious reception today to the long-awaited Indian com- promise proposal for settling the Korean prisoner of war deadlock. Although objections were raised on several points of the draft reso- j lution India handed the U. N. Gen- I eral Assembly yesterday, neither Communist nor non-Communist representatives rejected the pro- posal outright. Neither side, how- ever, was enthusiastic about it. The world diplomats marked time in the main Korean debate in the Assembly's Political Com- mittee so they could study the reso- lution further. Sessions originally scheduled for today were postponed for lack of speakers. Decisions still were being made behind the scenes, and it was ex- pected other compromise proposals would be introduced after the Ko- rean debate is resumed tomorrow. The delegates also awaited the outcome of the major policy talks in Washington today between Pres- ident Truman and President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower. Vital Policies U. S. Secretary of State Dean Acheson went to Washington for the conference and hoped to get from the incoming administration head some assurance that vital U. S. policies toward problems con- fronting the U. N. will not be dras- tically changed. The Indian resolution calls for a four-nation commission to take charge of repatriating prisoners of as soon as an armistice is reached in Korea. I The Indians suggested two Com- munist and two non-Communist na- tions Poland, Czechoslovakia, Sweden and Switzerland. But they added if this wasn't acceptable, four other states not participating in the Korean permanent members of the Secur- ity serve. The com- mission would choose a neutral um- pire to vote in case of a 2-2 dead- lock on decisions. The resolution, introduced by In- dia's V. K. Krishna Menon after days of backstage talks with Amer- icans, Russians and various parties in between, declares force will not be used either to prevent or effect the repatriation of prisoners. The U. S. stands firmly against forcible return of prisoners who oppose going back to their Commu- nist-ruled homelands. The Commu- nists have demanded that all pris- oners be handed over whether they want to return or not. Prisoner Screening The Indian resolution carefully avoided any mention of screening the point to which the Russians have violently objected. It calls for both sides to hancl over all prisoners to the commission in a demilitarized zone, where they will be free to return home or to stay under the commission's control. An American spokesman ex- pressed the belief the Indian plan would not work and asserted the commission would not be able to handle the gigantic job of feeding, housing and administering the thou- sands of Chinese and Korean pris- oners who refused to go home.

Burnquist topped the Republican party _ HI n 'I CH_ General Opens Conference With Truman No Statement Expected From President-Elect WASHINGTON UP) Dwight D. Eisenhower returned triumphantly to Washington today for a moment- ous welcome and a momentous i meeting with President Truman on i problems pressing down upon the nation and the world. The beaming general was ac- claimed at a reception at Wash- ington National Airport and 'again as he headed for the White House through crowded Washington ave- nues. President Truman waited in his office to sit down with the general and brief him on issues now bur- dening the government and those likely to come along in the days I ahead. It was the first chance the two had to get together since the elec- tion campaign with all its hitter- ness and the angry words they had flung at one another. Eisenhower flew to Washington from Augusta, Ga., where he has been vacationing. His four-engined Eastern Airlines plane sat down at p.m. and the general and bis wife, Mamie, walked down the ramp four minutes later. Ceremonial troops and the Army voteAssoate Justice' Frank T. Gallagher" ran up a "record-smash- ing total, and all five constitutional amendments went down to defeat in the Nov. 4 general election in Minnesota. These were the highlights of the official returns certified today by the State Canvassing Board. Minne- sotans cast a total of highest number in state history. Burnquist, who served as gover- nor from 1915 to 1921 and was elected eight times to his present office, outran all party candidates with a total of against 760 for Allan L.

PAUL state band were drawn up. Informal Remarks In brief informal remarks, Eisen- hower said he quite naturally was delighted by the reception but "a little astonished" by it since it was supposed to be strictly a business trip. i The general flashed his famous I grin at everyone in sight, rumpled his tousled hair, and walked to a microphone to express his pleasure at the welcome. He was delighted to be here, he said. He added that he expected to go on to New York in a couple I of hours and then "be buck here j somewhere near Jan. 20." That is inauguration day. And today's visit to Washington at Supreme Department heads today had warn Court. Gallagher polled j ing from Gov. Anderson they had votes and a margin of more than better trim their budgets, a half million in the non- far as j am the Truman's invitation was in prep- aration for that event. Harry S.
