CHIEF PETTY OFFICER R. V. BELL, who received his rating recently, was sentenced by a court
of CPOs Thursday night at their initiation at the Naval Station CPO Club. His sentence was to
•‘act his age as a penalty for impersonating a Chief Petty Officer.” This was just one of the
numerous penalties imposed on the newly rated men by their senior Chiefs.—Finch, Citizen Staff.

is time the National Bureau of
Standards’ “haio was removed.”
The bureau’s *eport. after four
tests, that AD-X 2 was worthless
has been questioned by, among
others, Secretary of Commerce
Weeks. The secretary ousted Dr.
Allen V. Astin as tiureau director,
then temporarily reinstated him
pending outcome of more tests.
Goodwin, a distributor of AD-X 2,
said yesterday it worked fine in a
big submarine battery. He said
Navy doctors want to test it to see
if it will reduce the danger of gas
eous accumulations in such bat
teries.

FHA Anniversary
J
WASHINGTON i Si - Good old
days note:
The first Federal Housing Ad
ministration insured loan, in Au
gust 1934, was tor $125. John P.
Powers of Cloquet, Alinn., used it
to paint his house, repair the roof
and install a water tank.
In December, 1934, Mr. and Mrs.
Warren Newkirk used a $4,800 loan
to build the first FHA-financed
house in Pompton Lakes, N. J.
The agency recalled these begin
nings today in an anniversary
statement marking the start of its
20th year.
Polio Vaccine
Test Is Planned
ST. PAUL, Minn. UH A mass
test of anew polio vaccine on as
many as a half million U. S. chil
dren may be undertaken this year
by the National Foundation for I
fatile Paralysis.
Basil O’Connor, foundation direc
tor, voiced that possibility here
Friday night in a talk at a six
state meeting of workers for the
March of Dimes Campaign, which
mainly supports the foundation.
O’Connor said a vaccine devel
oped by Dr. Jonas Salk of the Uni
versity of Pittsburgh would be used
if the experiment is carried out.
He added that this vaccine had
shown enough promise to warrant
such a large-scale test.
The director told the fund work
ers from Minnesota, Illinois, lowa,
Wisconsin and the two Dakotas that
1953 was ‘‘shaping up as another
heavy polio year, perhaps our
heaviest.”
Eden To Leave Hospital
BOSTON W)—Next Tuesday has
been set as the date for British
Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden
to leave New England Baptist Hos
pital where he underwent a bile
duct operation June 10.
A recent hospital bulletin said
“He is in excellent spirits and
in gaining appreciably in weight on
a full diet.
“His general condition is such
that approval has been given for
him to leave the hospital on June
30.”
FINGERPRINTS DON’T

was afraid to scream because of
their threats. She waited until the
men were out of the neighborhood
and then called police, who spread
a dragnet over the city.
The arrest of the two men, last
Wednesday, marked the first break
in the case in a month.
UPPER HAND
(Continued From Page One)
called a high handed and uncon
stitutional procedure.
House Speaker Joseph W. Martin
(R-Mass) told reporters today he
believes less than 25 of the 220 Re
publican House members would
join Reed’s battle against the ad
ministration. Other Republicans
close to the maneuvering thought
! that might be an optimistic esti
mate, but even foes conceded the
great bulk of GOP members would
follow Martin and the President.
Democratic leaders, however,
said the great majority of their
party would oppose what they
called trampling on the traditional
committee system of Congress. But
they conceded that some of the 212
Democrats—estimates ranged from
20 to 50—would support the move.
Backing for the rules procedure
came chiefly from Northern and
Eastern Democrats who have tra
ditionally supported the excess
profits tax.

and Chinese Communist troops in
north. His “minimum demands”
for an armistice have been the
withdrawal of U. Sand Chinese
troops, a 90-dav time limit on a
post-armistice political conference,
and a security pact with the U. S.
In Washington, Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles said President
Eisenhower was talking of a post
armistice meeting when he said
Thursday he would be willing to
send any high U. S. official to meet
with Rhee outside Korea.
The President had been quoted
as telling U. S. senators that he
would be willing to send a high
official to meet with Rhee in an
effort to win the South Korean
president over to a truce.
Ree s press secretary said there
would be no comment until a meet
ing was officially proposed by
Washington.

SHAKEUP OF DEFENSE

chairman of the Joint Chiefs was
being given no “command” power.
Rep. Dodd (D-Conn) asserted
that “under the guise of executive
! reorganization, the long-sought
objective of a certain professional
military clique appears about to
be reached.”
He said there was an attempt
| “to sneak through this proposal
although the Hoover Commission
on government reorganization, aft
er a seven month study, “directly
and completely rejected” a simi
lar one.
Rep. Hebert (D-La) said he
“wouldn’t five my own brother
such power." and called the Joint
Chiefs proposal “a dictatorship, a
military man on horseback
Rep. Reams (I-Obio) said in a
Congressional Record statement
that under the plan "the chairman
of the Joint Chiefs would become
absolute in his power to overrule
the chief of staff of the three serv
ices and to manage the 210-man
military staff.” while at present
a majority of the Joint Chiefs must
act “with the veto power staying
with the President."

TRUMAN CONDEMNS
(Continued from Page One)
change in the attitude of the reck
less and isolationist wing of the
Republican party.”
Truman declared that the Re
publican House members “by
the score deserted their leaders”
last week to vote for cuts in the
Mutual Security program. “It was
the Democrats,” he said “under
Sam Rayburn, the minority leader,
who provided the margin of vic
tory for the Republican adminis
tration.”
The Truman defense budget of
about 41 billion dollars has been
cut to about 36 billion by the Ei
senhower administration. Most of
the reductions in the budget for the
12 months beginning July 1 apply
to the Air Force. The goal set in
the Truman administration was for
an air force of 143 wings and the
present goal is for 120 wings by
mid-1955. A wing varies in size
from 30 bombers to 75 fighters.
First reaction to the Truman ad
dress came from Leonard W. Hall,
chairman of the Republican Na
tional Committee who declared:
“Mr. Truman is back at the old
stand soft on economy, soft on
money and soft on communism.
In a statement issued in Wash
ington Hall declared Mr. Truman
was given a well-deserved rest by
the American people, and be should
take it.”
Republican senators reactions to
the speech were chilly. Sen. Fer
guson (R-Mich), chairman of the
subcommittee considering defense
funds, said Truman is “still hook
ing feathers on dollar bills and
calling them Air Force wings.”
The Michigan senator said Tru
man “apparently forgot he im
pounded some 700 million dollars
Congress voted for Air Force ex
pansion.” (This was in reference
to action Oct. 29, 1949, when Tru
man ordered placed “in reserve”
a 615 million dollar item in mili
tary' appropriations to build the
Air Force to 58 groups, saying the
size the House wanted would be
“inconsistent with a realistic and
balanced security program which
we can support in peacetime.”)
Chairman Saltonstall (R-Mass) of
the Senate Armed Services Com
mittee said Truman "has given us
no new facts. . . . ol course there
is danger from atomic attacks and
there always will be,” Saltonstall
said, adding that the Eisenhower
budget will decrease danger by
providing| “a better defense.”
Sen. Hendrickson (R-NJ), armed
services committeeman said the
Truman speech ‘is additional evi
dence that he personally never did
understand these defense budgets.”

What Robertson was telling
Rhee, it was understood, was that

into the hands of the Commu

“They will play this record as
long as they feel it is doing them
any good,” an American State Da
partment source said.
“It is much more important for
the Reds to split the West than
get an armistice. If they think they
have really driven a wedge be

Republic of Korea they might stall
a truce indefinitely.”
