millions of dollars of public cn it.
The statement was made by
Morgan Beatty, National Bmd

at the closing session of theßth
annual convention of Kiwanij In*

“I say as a fact, not as otnion
and I can prove it, that great
banks and insurance compass as
well as builders have been factic
ing galloping socialism unr the
housing law,” Beatty said.JThere
has been widespread theftw pub
lic credit—and thievery is /ievery,
any way you look at it. /
“I say to you, that whef a great
insurance company iss s n 24
million dollar loan for/ project
that costs only 20 miu>n, when
the builders were using/he public
credit, and practical if none of
their own money, andA'hen FHA
allowed that to go of an multi
plied a thousand fold/nd allowed
the builders to pocty/t four mil
lion on the deal—th 4is not pri
vate enterprise. It istyot good cit
izenship. And the q/stion of loy
alty to the principle! Kiwanis has
set forth is definite/ before us.”
Beatty said that/50,000 Ameri
cans improperly afd fraudulently
obtained unemployment insurance
payments last y.e* atnounting to
nearly seven miU>n dollars.
He said LaboaDepartment in
vestigators “nowtell us that the
loss on unempifnient insurance
last year probfy was close to
25 million doll a/.” -

itself—for mapg tax evasion so

/ike Signs
Seaway Bill
WASHINGTON Ei
senhower signed the St. Lawrence
seaway bill yesterday in a White
House ceremony.
“Now work can begin on the
great project,” the President de
clared as he put his signature to
the measure which sets in motion
a plan to bring ocean trade into
the heart of the American conti
nent
With more than a score of Con
gress members and Canadian Am
bassador A. D. P. Henney, looking
on, Eisenhower used nine pens to
sign the bill.
Three of them were made from
wood recovered from old Fort De
troit in Michigan, which was the
last of the British-held forts in this
country.
Seated at Eisenhower’s right as
he signed were Sens. Ferguson (R-
Mich) and Wiley (R-Wis). On his
left was Rep. Dondero (R-Mieh).
All three of the Congressmen
played key roles in enactment of
the bill.
Eisenhower said he was very
bappy to sign it and that he was
particularly .glad the Canadian am
bssador was present.
The bitterly contested seaway
legislation finally cleared Congress
last Friday after a 30-year strug
gle.
The measure authorizes the
United States to join Canada in
building a waterway deep enough
to let ocean ships sail from the
Atlantic as far inland as Toledo,
Ohio, by going up the St. Lawrence
River to the Great Lakes.

GER I WININb WARNS
DEVELOPMENT OF AIR
AMARILLO, Tex. UP) Gen.
Nathan F. Twining said today the
new Russian heavy jet bomber,
comparable in size to the huge
American 852, was developed for
sole purpose of reaching “impor
tant targets in the United States.”
The Air Force chief of staff said
in a speech prepared for an
Armed Forces Day ceremony here
that the Reds’ medium bombers
can reach “any important target
in Europe or Asia or North
Africa ...
“They would need the new heavy
bomber only to reach important
targets in the United States.”
Placing heavy emphasis on the
recent Russian display of air pow
er over Moscow, he said the Soviet
Union now has “thousands more
combat planes” than the U. S. Air
Force, Navy, Marines and Army
combined.
Twining’s estimate seemed in
apparent conflict with that made
last month by Rep. Schrivner (R-
Kan), chairman of .a House Ap
propriations subcommittee hand
ling military funds. Scrivner said
the United States outnumbers Rus
sia by a 3-2 ratio in the air.
However, it was not clear wheth
er Scrivner was referring to over
all air strength, in all types of
planes, or to combat crait. Neither
is there any precise definition of
a “combat” plane applicable to
both nations.
Neither man used figures. There
has been official announcement
that as of last January the United
States Air Force, Navy and Ma
rine Corps had about 33,000 planes
of all types, of which one third
were jets. Russian strength has
been estimated at 20,000 planes in
active service, 20,000 in reserve.
Twining said today the Soviet air
force “is by far the biggest air
force in the world.” But he said:
* “We still have a considerable
lead over the Reds in long-range
air power as well as in weapons
that can be delivered by long
range air power. We can maintain
this advantage if we are willing
to pay the price in material re
sources and in the human resource
of hard work.”
He said that in the annual air
parade over Moscow two weeks
ago the Russians unveiled “some
thing very new,” whereas a year
ago they showed only some im
proved MIG fighters and light jet
bombers.
In this year’s air parade, he
said, the Soviets “included nine
new medium jet bombers com
parable in size and design to ou
own 847.”
“Of course,” he said, “we al
ready have hundreds of 847s in
our own Air Force, so we are

ahead of them at present. But we
must face the fact that the Reds
have now begun to. copy, and per
haps try to improve upon our me
dium jet bomber. They did the
same thing with our 829 a few
years ago and they soon produced
hundreds of them.
“Even more significant, how
ever, was the new heavy jet bomb
er that they displayed for the first
time in flight. . .
“Actually this new heavy jet
bomber is comparable in size and
appearance to our own 852. We
have as yet only a few 8525. The
Reds have now proved to the world
that they have at least one long
range jet bomber of a similar type.
“It is interesting to note that
the new heavy bomber and the
medium bombers of the Reds are
all equipped with extremely pow
erful engines embedded in the
wings \ *
The Boeing 852 has a wing span
of 185 feet, a length of 153, weighs
about 300,000 pounds when fully
loaded and fueled. It is powered
with eight J 57 jet engines, develop
ing about 10,000 pounds of thrust

each. Its combat radius, without
mid-air refueling for which it is
equipped, is about 3,000 miles. Its
speed is “faster” than the medi
um 847 which flies well above 600
miles per hour.
Twining’s phrasing suggested
that the engines in the new Soviet
heavy bomber exceed substantially
the power of the J 57 engine, most
powerful in present operational use
by the United States Air Force.

DPs Are Subject
To UJS. Draft
CHICAGO UP A displaced per
son in the United States for per
manent residence may be drafted
for military service, the U.S. Cir
cuit Court of Appeals has held.
In its decision yesterday, tht
court unanimously upheld the
three-year prison sentence given
Anpanas J. Rumsa, 23. a Lithu
anian who defied the draft.
Rumsa contended in the lower
court that when he came here in
1950 he was under a temporary
and not a permanent status. Fur
ther), he argued that under a
U.S.-Lithuanian treaty, both coun
tries agreed not to conscript each
other’s citizens.
But the appeal court ruled that
the 1951 draft law superseded the
treaty and “makes all aliens ad
mitted for permanent residence
available for immediate induction.
