Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Snow Flurries, Warmer Tonight; Fair Sunday Be a Goodfellow VOLUME 52, NO. 242 WC CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, SATURDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 29, 1952 EIGHTEEN PAGES Free Chest X-Rays Soon Available for E very one in County It's Not Too Free chest X-rays will be' available shortly after the first of the year on a continuous basis to all persons living in Winona County. A new 000 X-ray machine will be installed m the department of health in the City Hall to provide the service. The Christmas Seal Organization of Winona County contributed toward the cost of the machine, and R. W. Miller and B. A. Miller provided the bal- ance of the cost as a memorial to their father, the late Joseph Miller, founder and former president of Miller Waste Mills, Inc. Joseph Miller came to Winona in 1892 and died in 1946. His widow resides at 115 E. Broadway. The project, which was sponsor- ed by the Winona Public Health Nursing Advisory Committee, has been under study by the group for a year and a half, Mrs. James McConnon, president of the corn- M. TO LW Be GooJfellow LTHOUGH today is only Nov. 29 and Christmas is almost a month away, it's not too early to be a Goodfellow. There are many reasons why you mittee, said. The money needed to operate the free X-ray service will come from three separate sources. The Christ- mas Seal Organization will provide annually, and the City Coun- cil and Board of County Commis- shouldbe a Good- sioners have agreed to furnish up f p 11 o w NOW Ito a vear each- Goodfellow work! I Dr. R H. WUson, city health of- ficer and an ex-officio member of the committee, hailed the plan as beiag one ol the most effective ers have a big job ahead of them. They must accompany over 800 needy Winona boys and girls to stores and have there fitted with the clothes they must have to withstand the cold winter. It will take several weeks to serve all the children. Good- fellow workers must start now. But they can't start buying, of course, until they receive the money. What's more, 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 is that school children must be fitted BEFORE the Christmas vacation begins. The children will be taken directly from their schools into the stores for fitting. This must be done soon. Pre-school children and those not in school for other reasons are served after the school children. Christmas shopping rush is not yet in full swing. If Goodfel- lows can purchase early they will get better selections and service. Near-zero temperatures are here? "It's NEVER too early for a thinly clad boy or girl to get a new warm coat or snowsuit. Those are a few of the reasons why you should be a Goodfellow NOW.

Many Need X-Rayj "There are many persons in the county who should receive periodic he said. ".411 those who have had positive Mantoux reac- tions, should be X-rayed at least once a year. Yet because of the expense of local X-rays and the dis- tance to Buena Vista Sanatorium near Wabasha, many of these peo- ple let it slide. "We also anticipate that the X- ray service will greatly aid our search for new cases of tuberculo- sis in-the county. We expect to find the cases early enough to make the treatment of them much easier and less expensive." According to Dr. Wilson, Winona County ranks 54th in tuberculosis death rate among the 87 counties of the state. In 1951 nine new cases were diagnosed in the city of Winona, and rural Winona Coun- ty had 12 cases hospitalized. Sta- tistics for 1952 are not yet avail- able. Less Expensive Dr. Wilson said that the new X- ray service will be far less expen- sive to maintain than other X-ray machines in the city. One of the chief savings in cost of operation of the new machine will be the Lodge Named U.S. Envoy to United Nations Will Succeed Austin as Head Of Mission NEW YORK President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower announced today he will appoint U. S. Sen. i Henry Cabot Lodge to head the i U. S. mission to the United Na- tions. I Appointment of Lodge is subject to Senate confirmation. He will i succeed Warren Austin in the U. N. post. Secretary of State designate John j Foster Dulles announced the ap-1 pointment for Eisenhower. Lodge, 50, was one of the origi- nal backers of Eisenhower for the Republican presidential nomina- tion and campaigned hard for him. He failed to be re-elected to the Senate in a bitterly contested race in his own state of Massachusetts, however. Dulles said in the announcement that Lodge would be "one of the administration's principal advisers and representatives in the formula- tion and conduct of foreign policy." Austin, former senator from Ver- mont, has expressed a desire to re- tire from the U. N. post. As head of the U. S. mission Lodge would be the permanent U. S. representative to the U. N. and this country's representative in the Security Council. Lodge is the grandson of the late U. S. Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge who led the opposition to this na- tion joining the old League of Na- tions. A former newspaper man, Lod- ge was first elected to the Senate from Massachusetts in 1S36. During World War II he resigned from the Senate to serve on active Army duty. I He served in Africa and Europe j and left the service a lieutenant j colonel. In 1946 he was re-elected to the Senate. In this year's sen-1 atorial race.he lost to Democratic Rep. John Kennedy. It also was announced at Eisen- hower's Commodore Hotel head- j quarters that he has appointed Em- j mitt J. Hughes, an editor of Life magazine, as an administrative as-1 .sistant after he takes office Jan. j 20. I The announcement of Lodge's j appointment followed a conference j between Dulles and the general.

The Goodfellow workers spend this money on new articles of clothing, like trousers, shoes, overshoes, jackets and snowsuits whatever the child needs so that he can be warm on his way to school or play out- doors with the rest of the children. All clothing is bought new. In many cases, child's Good- fellows clothes are all the gifts he will receive for Christmas. Every cent of the Goodfellows fund is spent wisely, carefully where it will do the most good. basis large films are essential, but according to Dr. Wilson, large films are not needed for chest X- rays. The committee plans to canvas all Winona industries, with the eventual goal of X-raying most of the people in the city, Mrs, Mc- Connon said.

PAUL m U.S. District Court jury today convicted three men and their company on charges of violating the federal gambling law against interstate transporta- tion of slot machines. Judge Den- nis Donovan said he would pro- nounce sentence at 10 a. m. Jan. 4. Convicted of conspiracy to vio- late the law were Herman Paster, president of the Mayflower Distrib- uting Co., St. Paul, and Samuel G. Nilva, field manager. The company, Nilva and Albert Gardner, a shipping clerk, were convicted on a charge of illegally transporting 38 slot machines to Minnesota from Iowa and Illinois. Gardner was found Innocent of the conspiracy charge. The jury received the case short- ly before 3 p. m. Friday and pre- sented it in court about 11 a. m. today. At the request of defense attor- neys Judge Donovan continued bail of Paster at with each for Nilva and Gardner. The three received the verdict with apparent calmness. Paster even managed a smile when he was asked if the three would pose for a picture. "I hate to disappoint he said, "but we've got relatives and children living here." The three left the federal courts building soon after the verdict was announced. Chief government witness in the trial was Laurel J. Carleton, Dav- enport, la. The government charg- ed that Paster, in a letter to Carle- ton, asked him to round up slot machines after they were made ille- gal in Iowa-. Carleton testified he obtained the machines for Paster from Iowa and Illinois clubs and had them trucked into Minnesota around March 1, 1951. The much of the fact that Paster-Carle- ton letter never was produced in court. The transportation charge carries a maximum penalty of two years imprisonment or a fine or both. Maximum penalty on the con- spiracy charge is five years impris- onment or fine or both. Farm Prices Drop WASHINGTON UP) For the third month in a row, farmers rec- orded a drop in prices of .the things they grow. The cost of growing them was also down. The Agriculture Department re- ported Friday that farm product prices declined 2 per cent from mid-October to mid-Novamber. Thye Charged With Abusing Mail Privilege ST. PAUL Washington of- ficials are being asked to rule on whether Sen. Edward J. Thye (R- Minn) is a.violator of the Congres- sional franking privilege. Formal complaint that he had was filed in the form of an affi- davit' late Friday by Karl Rol- vaag, Minnesota Democratic-Far- mer-Labor chairman. Rolvaag said Thye had mailed more than letters of strictly political nature on Oct. 28, advocating election of Dwight D. Eisenhower as presi- dent and himself for return to the U. S. Senate. W. J. Smith, postoffice inspector in charge here, said the affidavit was being sent to Washington for formal action. Franking is restrict- ed to the conduct of federal busi- ness via free postage, Winnie Ruth Judd Vanishes Without Single Major Clue PHOENIX, Ariz. Iff) Winnie Ruth Judd, wily, red-haired trunk murderess, has apparently van- ished without leaving a single ma- jor clue. Tired, bleary-eyed police ad- mitted early today they are no nearer solving the riddle of her escape from the Arizona State Hospital than they were Thursday night when she slid out a hole cut in a heavy window screen and disappeared in the darkness. "Every lead we've run down has washed said Herb Barnes, sheriff's deputy in charge of the hunt. "We have some others we are still working on and we are still checking-her many acquaint- ances." Officers are operating on the theory she had help and it mignt have come from friends. They have been unsuccessful in lo- cating two nurses formerly em- ployed at the hospital. They are wanted for questioning. A tip that the 48-year-old killer of 21 years ago was hiding in a house at Tucson, some 121 miles southeast of Phoenix, caused some excitement last night. Police surrounded the house, but were unable to enter without a warrant. A search of the premises after the owner returned ended the vigil. There was no sign of the missing woman. Mrs. Judd was committed to the state hospital in 1931 after an llth- hour appeal saved her from the gallows. She had been convicted of killing Agnes Ann Le Rqi and Hedvig Samuelson in a jealous rage over a mutual suitor. She dismembered their bodies and sent them to Los Angeles in a trunk and suitcases, WEATHER FEDERAL.

S. Superforts blasted Communist airfields within cannon shot of Manchuria and struck at other sprawling targets farther south last night in their third biggest night raid of the war. Forty-nine B29s from Okinawa and Japan teamed up for the strikes, 34 of the big bombers braving heavy antiaircraft fire and Red fighters to Sinuiju and Uiju in extreme Northwestern Korea. Fifteen bombed a big supply com- pound at Haeju, a marshaling yard at Hamhung and Communist bat- tlefront -positions. B26s Over Targets Low-flying B26 bombers swept over the targets ahead of the Superforts to knock out search- lights and antiaircraft guns. How- ever, searchlights from across the Yalu River, in Communist Man- churia, fingered the dark skies. Far East Air Forces reported the Superforts aimed at the targets by radar and results were not ob- served. Pilots reported, "We got out of there quick." A handful of Communist night fighters rose from their big base at Antung, Manchuria, and at least one cut loose at the Superforts with its guns. Most of the others ap- peared to be making non-firing passes, however. Allied losses, if any, will be announced in a weekly report. Maj. Jack W. Dollohan of St. Petersburg, Fla., reported seeing a hair-raising possibly a defective shell or debris blown up from the target. Ball of Fire "It was -a ball of fire with a 10-foot tail of flame and it crossed in front of our Dollohan said. In addition to blasting the air- fields, the Superforts rained 500- pound bombs on a huge commu- nications center at Uiju and repair shops at Smuiju. Uiju is seven miles northeast of Sinuiju. Both are within two miles of the wind-1 ing Yalu boundary between North j Korea and Manchuria. On the battlefront, Communist artillery and mortar barrages slammed into Allied positions on the Central Front with Chinese infantry attacking Sniper Ridge. The Eighth Army reported the some 90 smashed before dawn. Sister Kenny Sinking Fast ames Archbishop James Francis A. Mclntyre Wreckage of C124 Found in Alaska ANCHORAGE, Alaska WV-The snow-covered wreckage of a giant C124 Globemaster which- carried its 52 passengers to their doom Nov. 22 has been found by an educator-flier high on the icy slopes of an Alaskan mountain. It was located only a few hours after another military transport had crashed yesterday at Tacoma, Wash., bringing fiery death to 36 of the 39 persons aboard. SYDNEY, Australia Elizabeth Kenny, famed polio nurse critically ill with coronary thrombosis at her Queensland home, is sinking, the latest bul- letin from her bedside said early today. Sister Kenny suffered a turn for the worse last night. She is un- conscious, her right side is par- alyzed and she is receiving oxygen continuously. An airliner bringing supplies of a new drug, trypsin, from a New York hospital was due in Brisbane tonight. Sister Kenny's physician, Dr. John Ogden, expressed doubt, however, whether it would arrive in time. The plane has been diverted from Sidney to Brisbane and an automobile is waiting at the airport to speed the drug to the Kenny home in Toowoomba, 85 miles from Brisbane. And it was one of nine military planes "vith 209 persons aboard which have crashed with disas- trous results or disappeared in the great circle from Korea to Montana in the past three weeks. Official Washington has taken notice of the tragic series, which has wiped out whole families, and ordered an investigation of its Alaska-connected radio navigation- al aids and communicatieas sys- tems. No Sign of Life of taking a trail crew in to the crash scene. The big C124 on Mt. Gannett killed the largest number in the series of accidents and disappear- ances which started Nov. 7 when a C119 cargo plane hit a mountain top on a flight from Elmendorf to Big Delta, Alaska. Nineteen men died. On Nov. 12 a Navy patrol bomb- er crashed near Shelton, Wash., with the loss of 11 lives. Two days Dr. Terris Moore, president of later, another C119 crashed into the University of Alaska and a another mountainside 18 miles east skilled pilot, flew to the Seoul on a ?ghtj Tokyo C124 wreckage with a companion 44 men aboard. None sur- whose identity has not been learned. They landed near the mountain's summit in Moore's ski- equipped light plane. His description, of the scene was a terse, "There is no sign of no life." The comment, radioed to planes which circled overhead, told nothing more. But Air Force pilots said the wreckage was covered by snow, with only the tail showing. They speculated that a snowslide occurred after the plane, en route here to Elmendorf Air Force Base from McChord Air Force Base, Tacoma, rammed into Mt. Gannett feet below the peak's foot summit. High winds kept Moore and his' companion from leaving the wreck scene, but they were dropped sup- plies to tide' them over the night. Meanwhile Air Force rescue offi Eleven men were lost and seven rescued Nov. 15 when a C46 dove into the Sea of Japan near the coast of Korea. That night, 20 men aboard another C119 disappeared on a flight from Anchorage to Kodiak. Search still is being con- ducted for that airplane and its human cargo. The next crackup was at the east- ern end of the trail on Nov. 17. A fourth C119 crashed near Bill- ings, Mont., killing half of the 16 men on it. Then, the C124 which was found yesterday disappeared and two days later a Royal Cana- dian Air Force bomber crashed on Vancouver Island. Eight men per- ished, two survived. Finally, the C54 from Anchorage crashed at Tacoma early yester- day. It was loaded with service- cials were studying the feasibility I men, their wives and children. Archbishop in Los Angeles Only U.S. Selectee Formal Elevation To Come at Rome Consistory Jan. 12 VATICAN CITY Pope Pius XII today announced the of 24 new cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church, including Jamei Francis Mclntyre, archbishop of Los Angeles, and Msgr. Alojryc Stepinac, archbishop of Zagreb who was imprisoned by Premier Marshal Tito's Communist govern- ment in Yugoslavia. The new princes of the church will be elevated to the Sacred Col- jlege in a great consistory to be held Jan. 12. This ceremony bring- ing the death-depleted ranks of the college up to its full strength of 70 will be the first since the great postwar consistory of 1946 in which the Pope gave symbolic red hats to 32 prelates in one of the most impressive and splendid ceremon- ies of the Catholic Church. Present U. S. cardinals are Fraa- cis J. Spellman, New York; Sam- uel A. Stritch, Chicago and Ed- ward A. Mooney, Detroit. Native of Ntw York The new American cardinal has been head of the Los Angeles Arch-diocese since 1948. A native of New York, Archbishop Mclntyrt. is 66 years old. Archbishop Stepinac was condi- tionally released from prison by the Yugoslav government last De- cember after he had served five years of a 36-year sentence for alleged collaboration with the Nazis during World War II. The Catholic Church excommun- icated all who had a part in the arrest, trial and jailing of Step- inac. The archbishop himself repeated- ly asserted his innocence. In Jaly, 1950, it was disclosed that the Yu- goslav government offered to free Stepinac on condition that he leave the country. The Vatican rejected the offer. In a cell interview with an Associated Press correspond- ent, Alex Singleton, the archbishop said he would not agree to leave "because I do not feel guilty." Honor Stepinae Although the Tito government gave him a conditional release, it has not allowed the prelate to re- sume his church post and has re- fused to recognize him as head of [the Catholic Church in that coun- try. Since his release, Stepinac has been living in the local parish house at Krasic, his native town near Zagreb. In addition to Archbishop Mcln- tyre and Msgr. Stepinac, the new cardinals include: Msgr. Car'.o ARomi. patrtach or Venice. Msgr, Celiio Consumtml, tlshop of TMdosiopoli. Augusto Alvaro da Silvi, trch- blshop of San Salvador Jn 3ala. Msgr, Clcognsnl. apostolic nun- cio to Spain. Mssr.
