Without the great initia- tives of American post-war policy, the night of Europe's post-war hopelessness would surely, by now, have ended in final catastrophe. Yet there is poison in this French atmosphere poison that ex- presses itself in the truly venom- ous criticism of the United States and all its work that can now be heard everywhere in France. Cause of Trouble The pursuit of love, the struggle to be liked by" foreigners, are cardinal errors of foreign policy. The richest nation on earth, bear- ing on its shoulders the entire final responsibility for the fate of the Western World, cannot expect to be held in affection by partner nations which must now acknow- ledge this new leader. But it is also very dangerous if dislike and dis- trust reach such a pitch that calm discussion of common problems becomes all but impossible. This is close to being that state of af- fairs today between France and America. It is easy enough to see the su- perficial causes of this grave trou- ble.

Names of the crew were re- leased late yesterday. The pas- sengers have not been identified. Since Nov. 7, six planes either have crashed or disappeared. They carried 162 men, of whom 82 are known dead, 72 are missing and eight survived. Three of the troop carriers were lost in Alaska, two in Korea and one in Montana. The weak radio signal, which could have come from emergency equipment carried by the Globe- master, was picked up yesterday by the CAA station at Yakataga, on the Alaska coastline about 150 miles east of Middleton Island, The SOS was so dim no bear- ing could be taken. But authorities at Elmendorf Air Force Base here said the signal on 'the international distress frequency of 500 kilocycles might have come from "Gibson saved France were also designed to serve the interests of America.

Alger Hiss Parole Application Denied Miss Pit Seibel, 24, Denver, Saturday night became the first queen ever chosen by Sigma Delta Chi, national journalistic fraternity. Miss Seibel, origin- ally from Centralia, 111., was chosen after appearing as a vo- calist at the closing banquet of the fraternity's national con- vention. She was nominated by undergraduate fraternity dele- gates from Ohio State, Iowa State, Illinois and Missouri. (AP Wirephoto to The Repub- lican-Herald) WASHINGTON (ffl Alger Hiss today was denied a parole. The U. S. Parole Board an- nounced it had turned down the application of the former State De- partment official, now serving a five-year term for perjury. Dr. George G. Killinger, board chairman who conducted a hearing on the Hiss petition at Lewisbiirg (Pa.) penitentiary about 10 days ago, made this statement: "In the1 matter of the. application of parole for Alger Hiss, the Board of Parole, after a careful consider- ation of the official record, unani- mously voted to deny the appli- cation." The board is composed of five members. It acted on the basis of a report submitted by Killinger after his visit to Lewisburg. Hiss was convicted on lying when under deny- ing that-he ever gave secret gov- ernment documents to Communist agents. He became eligible for parole last Friday. Hiss, now 48, has persistently de- nied that he was guilty of the crime charged to him. State Deer Season Ends, 12 Men Dead By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Minnesota's 1952 deer season was at an end today with 12 hunters killed and an undetermined num- ber of animals slain. This year's hunting deaths equal- ed the number in the state's worst previous 'year, 1946. Gunshot wounds claimed 10 lives and two hunters died of ex- posure after becoming lost. Three other hunters died after suffering heart attacks. Diabetic Attack One gunshot victim apparently suffered a diabetic attack and fell on his own gun, which discharged, as he was going through a fence. The nine were felled by bul- lets from other hunters' guns. One of the hunters killed may have been the victim of a bullet deliberately aimed. H u b b a r d County Sheriff Ed Churchill said he had evidence tending to show that Lyle Allen, 42, Bemidji, was not the victim, of a stray bullet, as previously believed. Here is the list of victims: Died after being lost: Mike Konek, 66, Columbia Heights, a Minneapolis suburb, died in a Duluth hospital 24 hours after he was found near Tofte, off the North Shore. He was lost three days. Lester Peters, 56, Minneapolis, found dead after being lost a week in the woods north of Virginia. Died of gunshot wounds: Evert Bliss, 56, Pennington, ac- cidentally shot by a nephew, Mich- ael J. Hartman, 17, Bemidji, who mistook his uncle for a deer. Halvor Berger, 51, Brevik, who apparently fell on his gun during a diabetic attack as he climbed through a fence. Duane Lambert, 17, Princeton, shot in stomach as he hunted near Aitkin.' Near Hibbing Martin Larson, about 48, Two Harbors, killed near Hibbing when bullet went through a deer and struck him. Edward Owens, 51, Angus, shot through the neck as he hunted with three companions near their Polk County homes. Harold Hensel, 37, Bigfork, ac- cidentally killed by a nephew, Ken- neth Gregerson, 10, as they hunted near Bigfork. Wade Kimball, 41, Backus, killed near Hackensaek by a bullet appar- ently fired from about 75 yards away. Lyle Allen, 42, Bemidji, killed as he apparently sat in tree 25 feet above the ground, Adam N. Daraitis, Minneapolis, shot in the head near Bigfork. Walter P. Olson, 60, Emily, hit in the stomach by stray buEet as he hunted near Emily. Le Sueur Cannery Wins 3 Contracts MINNEAPOLIS UP) The Green Giant Co., Le Sueur, has been awarded three contracts totaling to furnish canned peas to the Chicago Quartermaster depot, the Department of Commerce said today. Westinghouse Electric Corp., Fer- gus Falls, Minn., also1 was given three contracts for furnishing oil circuit breakers and spare parts for the Garrison district, Army en- gineers, at Bismarck, N. D. B26 Bombers Destroy 200 Chinese Trucks Vehicles Wrecked in 9-Day Supply-Line Raids SEOUL Marauder bom- bers last night destroyed 200 Com- mumst vehicles in their greatest truck-busting foray of the year. The Marauders, ranging far and wide over the Red highway net- work, brought their nine-day bag to trucks. The ceaseless attacks are designed to stem the flow of supplies for frontline Communist troops. Twelve B29 Superforts, the fly- by-night partners of the Marauders, j dropped 120 tons of high explosives on a Red communications center near Sinanju. The target city is on the west coast, 40 miles north of Pyongyang, the North Korean capital. In daylight sorties, U. S. F86 Sabre jets shot down a Russian- type MIG15 jet. It was the seventh straight day of victory for the Sabres. Their score for the week stands at 17 MIGs destroyed, two probably destroyed and four dam- aged. Ground action Sunday was high- lighted by a series of Red harras- sing attacks all along the bleak 155- mile battlefront. A U. S. Eighth Army staff officer said the Reds appeared content to feel out the Allied defenses. None of their tentative jabs was aimed at talcing any U.N. positions. The largest Red probe-in-force was launched at Sniper Ridge, war- scarred hill mass on the Central Front. Allied rockets and artillery shells broke up a thrust by 450 Chinese. Dwight D.

Y. The most serious diplomatic rift between Britain and the U. S. in years continued unabated today despite efforts by India and ether countries to close the breach. Day-long harmony moves expected, but diplomats held little hope for them. The two great allies split far apart when the U. S. notified Brit- ish Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden that it could not accept a British-backed Indian compromise plan for ending the Korean prison- er of war deadlock unless the pro- posals should be given a as they stand, but the U. S. wants all details spelled out. India came up quickly with modifications but these apparently did not satisfy the U. S. The 21 powers which backed an original American resolution held an urgent closed meeting last night at which U. S. Secretary of State Dean Acheson detailed the American objections to the Indian proposals. The 21 apparently failed ,to find a position which would 1 please both Britain and the U. S.

Turn all prisoners held by [both sides over to a four-power commission made up of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Switzerland and Sweden. These countries would be responsible for caring for the pris- oners and getting them home. The commission would pick a neutral umpire who would sit as chairman of their deliberations. 2. After 90 days the commission would ask a political conference at which the Reds would be repre- sented what to do with the pris- oners still on its hands because they refused to go home. If the conference could not agree within 60 days, those prisoners would be turned over to a U. N. group. The Americans said they con- sidered the split the worst since Britain and the U. S. divided ozr what to do about the future of the prewar Italian colonies back in 194S. A source close to the British delegation said its mem- bers went thought' the diplomatic break the most serious between the two countries since President Roosevelt's atti- tude on the gold standard brought about what the British consider the "torpedoing" of the London Economic Conference in 1933. w i ;
