Goodfellow workers have a big job ahead of them. They must accompany more than 800 needy Winona boys and girls to stores and have them fitted with the clothes they must have to withstand the cold winter. It will take several weeks to clothe all the children. Goodfellow workers must start j now. But they can't start buying until they receive the money. And they can't determine how much can be spent on each child until they have an indication of how much money they will have to work with. Another reason why you should contribute to the Good- fellows NOW is that school children must be fitted BE- FORE the Christmas vacation These children will be taken directly from their schools into the stores for fit- ting. This must be done soon, for pre-school children and those not in school for other reasons are served after the school children.

Russia would attend as a full member on the Communist side of the as a neutral as the Reds demand. Dean said the 16 United Nations which fought in Korea and South Korea's President Syrgman Rhee have endorsed the plan.

The playwright, a Nobel Prize winner and three-time Pulitzer Prize winner in had roamed the world for material un- til recent years, when he was stricken by Parkinson's disease.

Dr. Harry L. Kozol, and bis nurse. Dr. Kozol said death was caused by bronchial pneumonia. High point in his long career was in 1936 when he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature. The award committee did not cite any particular work but O'Neill con- sidered his play "Mourning Be- comes Electra" a strong factor in the choice, Remember 'Anna Christie' That prize was only one of the many honors won by the prolific playwright, who had more than two score plays produced. His Pu- litzer Prizes were for "Beyond the 1920; "Anna 1922; and "Strange 1923.

That drama, laid in a Hell's Kitchen saloon, had drunks and bums as main characters, and the iceman was death. Lived Near Sea Then O'Neill went into seclusion until 1948, when he and his wife left the Broadway scene. They bought a small house on a point of rocks in Marblehead, Mass., near the sea which had surged through many of his plays. O'Neill's private life at times was almost as turbulent as those cf a character in one of his plays. He was married three times, the last in 1929. His only daughter. Oona, is the wife of movie comedian Charlie Chaplin. Born in New York City, O'Neill attended Princeton for one year and later was a student in Prof. George Pierce Baker's playwriting classes at Harvard. He was award- ed an honorary degree of doctor of literature by Yale University in 1926. His first wife was Kathleen Jen- kins, whom he married in 1909. They had one son, Eugene Jr.. who killed himself at Woodstock, N. Y., in 1950. After his divorce in 1912, O'Neill married Agnes Boulton in 1918. They had two children, Shane and Oona. Shane has not been in contact with his father for many Augusta Man Wounded by Badger Hunter EAU CLAffiE, Wis. m An unknown marksman whose first bullet missed its mark, wounded Nick Loibl, 35, Augusta, Wis., on a second try shortly after Wiscon- sin's deer season opened today.

Asks New World Arms Reduction Try UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. The U. N. General Assembly today called for new effo'rts to reduce the world's armaments and sug- gested this might be done by pri- vate talks among the big powers. Despite appeals for unanimity, the Soviet bloc abstained. Soviet delegate Andrei Vishinsky conterf- ded the resolution was too general and that it failed to give the U.N. disarmament commission enough guidance. The vote was 54-0 with five ab- stantions.

By TOM HOGE UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. President Eisenhower has prom- ised to move for complete Puerto Rican independence any time the Legislature of that Caribbean com- monwealth asks for it. The offer was announced to the U.N. General Assembly last night by chief U.S. Delegate Henry- Cabot Lodge Jr. Speaking during debate on proposed measures to determine when a dependent ter- ritory becomes sell governing, Lodge said: "I am authorized to say on be- half of the President that at any time the Legislative Assembly of Puerto liico adopts a resolution in favor of more complete or even absolute independence, he will immediately recommend to Con- gress that such, independence granted." Magnificent Attitude Puerto Rican Gov Luis Munoz Marin declared in San Juan: "This is a magnificent attitude which does honor to the United States and will show America and the whole world the sincerity of the present relationship of volun- tary association between the United States and Puerto Rico." The island, taken by the United States during the Spanish-Ameri- can War of 1898, was recently given self-governing status as a commonwealth associated with the United States. Some U. N. dele- gates have contended that status is meaningless and that in reality Puerto Rico is still a de- pendent territory. This viewpoint lost out in As- sembly, however, when the 60-pa- tion group adopted a resolution declaring the island no longer comes within the meaning of the term "non-self-governing terri- tory" as defined by the U.N. Char- ter. The vote was 22-16, with 18 nations abstaining. Lodge is slated to touch off the heralded Korean atrocity debate when the Assembly 'resumes Mon- day with demands that the body condemn the Red torture in strongest terms. Alarmad by Killing! U.N. 'sources said he will intro- duce a biting sored by Britain, France, Turkey, and the Assem- bly's "grave concern" over the killings and warning against repe- tition of such "inhumane" acts. Informed sources predicted the Soviet bloc, which bitterly fought placing the item on the Assembly agenda, will come up with charges that South Koreans committed some atrocities of their own. One informant said if the try that tack they "will get their brains knocked out in the'debate." He declared the U.S. delegation has a "devastating" mass of docu- mentary evidence to bolster the original U.S. Army report, which claimed the Reds killed at least persons, including Americans, by torture or starva- tion. A number of nations indicated then they felt that with the Korean political conference in the offing the United States had picked a poor time to bring up the atrocity issue. Some also said they did not think the U.S. Army report was sufficient evidence to warrant U.N. action. Cow Has Different Slaughter Plans FERGUS FALLS, Minn, city police chased a maddened cow a mile across town after the animal escaped its own slaughter and at- tempted to "slaughter" railroad section workers. A plane was used in efforts to locate the cow, which jumped out of a packing plant chute. Police finally caught up with the enraged cow near the state hospital and shot her. age in he married Cartotta Monterey. queen in September of last year at a riding stable here. WOMMBfEIU ;
