Real Estate Men Study
Taxation and Hear Attack on OPA Policy Trustees of the National Real Estate Foundation today turned to a study of taxation on real estate and real estate ownership as they entered the second day of a two day conference at the Statler Hotel here. In a closed session this afternoon the organization was expected to authorize a study which would em brace both taxes on real estate and, on property earnings. Arthur W. Binns. Philadelphia, will preside. At the opening session last night ,1 Howard Pew, Philedalphia. pres ident of the Sun Oil Co., warned that property owners could "never relax'' until the Office of Price Ad ministration is abolished. Charges OPA Coercion. Charging OPA with “coercion, in timidation and bribery,” Mr. Pew said he had no doubt that “black marketers are stanch supporters of OPA. just as the bootleggers were of national prohibition 15 years ago." Mr. Pew declared OPA is seeking to “remain in power by double-talk and specious argument, by arousing fear in the public mind, by spend ing millions of dollars of the tax payers' money on propaganda to delude them. * * Price control and strikes. Mr. Pew said, are mainly to blame for short ages of consumer goods. “And price control, in large measure, has been responsible for the strikes.“ he added. “Had in dustrial management been free to adjust prices and wages, and if the Government had not interfered, in creased wage demands would have been reconciled without the lengthy strikes which have been so costly to every one." Predicts Another Extension. The Philadelphia industrialist de clared that if Congress extends OPA for a year from June 30. the agency will seek extension again. “Next year.” he said, "they will be able to plead a greater urgency, for continued price control will make the problem worse.” In case price controls are ended this June, the Sun Oil Co. president said, “many price rises will be more ap parent than real. "When speaking of price increases,’ we should distinguish between the OPA or legal prices, which are largely academic, and real prices; which must be paid to get goods.” 3 Veteran Units Ofier Joint Training Plan The three largest veterans' organ izations, each of which has been nursing its own plan for universal military training, have got together on a joint proposal. A joint statement of tire Veterans of Fort£gri Wars, American Legion and Disabled American Veterans disclosed last night that they will ask Congress to introduce a bill with these features: 1. An adequate program for mili tary training with a specifice age range—for boys reaching 18 or after they finish high school, providing, they graduate before they reach 20. 3. A period of basic training of, from three to four months when it will least interfere with the! trainee's academic education or live lihood* 4. Af%r completion of basic train ing, a trainee would be given the option of completing the remainder of a year's training or the equiva lent through advanced technical or basic scientific training, in the Na tional Guard, in the organized re serve, in the ROTC for Army, Navy or air, or in the regular establish ments. 5 The program must allow the minimum of exemptions. Woman Kept Bound At Murder Trial By the Associated Press NEW YORK. April 9.—Mrs. Es peranza Pisanti, 49, being tried on a charge of first-degree murder, sat1 in Kings County Court for several hours yesterday with her body in a straightjacket. her mouth gagged, and her feet bound. County Judge Samuel Leibowitz ordered Mrs. Pisanti bound and gagged after she staged a hysterical demonstration similar to two others which caused postponements in her trial last week. Psychiatrists at Bellevue Hospital had declared Mrs. Pisanti sane. One of them had testified before Judge J Leibowitz that the woman was put- j ting on the demonstrations delib- j erately and could remain calm if she chose to do so. Mrs. Pisanti is accused of killing Mrs. Nancy Catalano with a gun a year ago, while the two shared an apartment in Brooklyn. Army Ground Forces Speeding Up Discharges By the Associated Press A two-and-a-half-month speed up in discharge for Army Ground Forces enlisted personnel was an nounced by Gen. Jacob L.

(From yesterday’s last edition. — AP and Star Staff Photos. $615,000 Profit Seen on Six Navy Subs Bought for $40,000 ay The AcsociaTed Press MIAMI, Fla., April 9.—Capt. Thomas H. Newman, onetime Penn sylvania coal miner and Florida deep-sea fisherman, said yesterday he had purchased six Navy subma rines for $40,000 and figured he had an easy net profit of at least $615, 000 on the deal. Capt. Newman said there was $55,000 worth of scrap lead in the submarines' batteries alone, and that the group's 12 Nelco Diesel 400 horse power engines were worth $50,000 each or a total of $600,000. Seventh Naval District headquar ters here confirmed that the sub marines. built in World War days between 1914 and 1916 at an esti mated cost of $1,500,000 each, were sold at Key West as "obsolete and scrap." They were believed to be the first such underseas craft sold to the public. Capt. Jlewman said he and his partner. M. O. Scott, Miami junk dealer, planned to scrap four of the craft, which had been stripped of periscopes, instruments, guns, tor pedoes and other equipment, and ■ would put the other two on exhibi | tion on the Miami bay front, i Capt. Newman, who came to Miami in the pioneer days in 1911, said he began life as a pit boy in the Pittsburgh coal mines, then ! came to South Florida and “struck lit rich" in deep-sea charter boat | fishing and other ventures. “I don’t need the money," he said, i referring to the submarines deal, '"but this looked like too good a ' thing to miss.” Negoiiators lo Reopen Mine Parley Today in Effort to End Strike By James Y. Newton Coal operators and John L. Lewis' United Mine Workers this afternoon were to renew efforts to agree on terms of a new soft coal work con tract and end the nine-day strike of 400,000 miners, which already is cutting deeply into the Nation's supplies of industrial fuel. The negotiators were to meet again at the Shoreham Hotel at 2:30 p.m., after a two-day recess. So far little progress has been re ported toward drafting a strike ending wage pact, and there was small reason to hope for a settle ment this week. I". S. May Intervene. There were indications that the Government would step into the dis pute w-ith a settlement proposition, as a Federal labor official predicted that something along that line would be done by the end of the week. Mr. Lewis, according to the oper ators, has yet to outline his wage demands and has devoted four weeks of talks almost solely to issues in volving mine safety and a union '"health and welfare" fund. Meantime, unemployment in other industries resulting from the strike reached 22,000, with steel mills, fuel carrying railroads, steel fabricating plants and trucking concerns hardest hit. Steel Plants Report Layoffs. Two United States Steel Corp sub sidiaries — Carnegie - Illinois Steel Corp. and National Tube Co.—re ported layoffs totaling 13,000 in the Pittsburgh area, and Carnegie-Illi nois said the coal shortage made idle another 2,000 in Chicago plants. At least 7.000 had been furloughed by the railroads, trucking com panies and fabricating plants. Chester Bowles, director of eco nomic stabilization, called a meet ing of his staff to consider the whole mine and mill picture. Mr. Bowdes is concerned, since any wage in crease given the miners will necessi tate higher coal prices. Three Fatal Shootings In New York Probed By the Associated Press NEW YORK, April 9.—Three men were killed and a fourth critically wounded within five hours last night and early today in a series of shoot ings in Manhattan and the Bronx. A city-wide investigation, headed by Police Commissioner Arthur W. Wallander. failed, however, to lead to any arrest. Among the victims was Charles H. Dimick, 61. of Tenafiy, N. J., president of the Richmond Piece D>e Works. Inc., of Richmond, Va., and the Fairlawn Finishing Co., Fairlawn, N. J„ who died after tell ing police he was shot by a sailor. Two patrolmen found Mr. Dimick, a bullet through his body, leaning against his automobile near Colum bus avenue at Sixty-second street. They said he told them he had been shot by a sailor to whom he had | given a ride. Mr. Dimick died on ■ arrival at Roosevelt Hospital. In a second slaying, which police | attributed to robbery. Samuel Sun ! shine, 54, proprietor of a bakery and i grocery, was found dead in the rear of the store with a bullet wound i in his head. Later, police reported, Daniel La gana, 32-year-old former Marine, was shot to death as he stepped out of his car in front of his Bronx home. His body bore four bullet wounds. Police gave no possible | motive. The fourth victim was Robert Rifkin, 22, a veteran of the Army ! Air Forces, who was shot in the ab , domen during an attempted holdup.

Jackson, chief Amer ican prosecutor, charged before the International Military Tri bunal today that the defense was attempting to “disseminate anti Semitic propaganda” through the war crimes trial and had committed a “flagrant ease of contempt of court.” Mr. Jackson based his charges on an exhibit of documentary evidence | which the tribunal's presses had •printed for defendant Alfred Rosen berg. Mr. Jackson contended the material, which he described as “violently anti-Semite and irrele vant rubbish" had been submitted to ;the printers by Rosenberg’s counsel I after it had been rejected by the tribunal. Sharp Reaction From Defense. Mr. Jackson’s charges brought an immediate and sharp reaction from defense counsel, whose spokesman tall, white-haired Dr. Rudolf Dix, replied with a suggestion that Mr. Jackson retract. “I stand on the facts." Mr. Jack son rejoined, and exhibited to the tribunal stenciled copies of the re jected material. Mr. Jackson read to the tribunal ; excerpts from Rosenberg’s book of documentary evidence which char acterized Jews as a “bastard popu lation * 4 * arrogant, shrewd and • crooked.” i “The United States cannot print • and disseminate to the press this violent anti-Semitism,” Mr. Jackson declared. “The defense believes we are here to try the issue of the .causes of anti-Semitism, with this tribunal as the sounding board. That is wrong. The issue is not Rosenberg’s philosophy, but we are charging the murder of four to five • million Jews. Included “by Mistake." The American prosecutor proposed shutting off printing facilities to the defense. Rosenberg’s counsel contended that the anti-Semitic passages read by Mr. Jackson were quotations from a French philosopher and were included in the printing order “by mistake.” Mr. Jackson's blast, delivered at the opening of the day's session, provoked a 90-minute argument over the rules on submitting, proc essing and printing documentary evidence. There have been frequent differences between the prosecution and the defense relative to material of questionable relevance. To alleviate these differences, the tribunal accepted Mr. Jackson's sug gestion that a special master be appointed to rule on the relevance of material submitted for printing, thus relieving the prosecutors and the tribunal of this problem. Dutch Beer Export Banned NEW YORK, April 9 (£>)._a spokesman for the government of the Netherlands said yesterday it had banned the export of beer from Holland to the United States rather than capitalize on the plight of the American breweries which have been ordered to curtail production. Alleged Match Cartel Involving 5 U. S. Firms Dissolved by Decree By the Associated Press NEW YORK, April 9.—Federal Judge Samuel Mandelbaum to day signed a consent decree terminating what the Govern ; ment charged was a world-wide cartel formed by five of the Na l tion’s largest match producers, | the Swedish Match Co., and offi ,cers and affiliates of the com | panies. The decree ended a civil suit filed I May 1, 1944, by the Justice Depart ' ment's antitrust division in which | it charged the firms with maintain ing an international cartel to con trol the manufacture and distribu tion of matches throughout the world. In signing the decree, the defend ants stated they did not admit any violation of the law, and the Gov ernment stipulated tl.e decree was not to be taken as an admission by any of the defendants of unlawful activities. Defendants Are Listed. Defendants consenting to the entry of the decree were; Diamond Match Co. of New York the Nation's largest manufacturer of matches; William A. Fairburn of Oaji, Calff., Diamond president; Howard F. Holman of Mahwah, N ij., company vice president. Universal Match Corp. of St. Louis, second largest American pro ducers of matches; Ohio Match Co. j of New‘York. B-F-D Co. of New York, and Robert G. Fairburn of New York, president of B-F-D; Lion Match Co., Inc., of New York. Also the William Gordon Corp. of New York, which the Government said was a personal holding com pany of William A. Fairburn, owning 51 per cent of the B-F-D stock, and a substantial number of stocks in Ohio Match Co., and the Lion Match Co. The Swedish Match Co. of Jon kopings, Sweden, world's largest match producers; Trans-American Match Corp. of New York, and Paul Bertil Lind, its president, and the New York Match Co., Inc., of New York, and Frederick Atterberg, its president. Trans-American and New York Match were described in the Gov ernment complaint as American agents of Swedish Match. British firm Implicated. Although not listed as a de fendant in the final action, the British firm of Bryant and May was said in a Justice Department statement to have “entered into a conspiracy" with Swedish and American producers which “suc cessfully suppressed the manu facture of Everlasting matches." The Justice Department asserted it had been unable to serve the British firm with papers in the case. Attorney General Clark de scribed the “Everlasting match" as one which may be struck sev eral thousand times before it is consumed. The Diamond Match Co. said in a statement, however, that it knew of no such device. The Attorney General said the agreement signed in New York “represents a successful conclu sion to one of the major cartel cases instituted by the Depart ment of Justice. The relief de creed should result in bringing to users the world over regular and adequate supplies of qualit matches at competitive prices.** "The industry under this decree should be open to any one desir ing to produce matches, and the smallest manufacturer able to operate with the same technical advantages and know-how as the giants of the industry.” Five in Family Burned To Death in Home Fire By the Associated Press HIGHTSTOWN. N. J„ April 9 — Five members of a Negro family of eight were burned to death today when flames destroyed their home in an employes' camp owned by the Cranbury Poultry Co. 2 miles from Hightstown.

Issuance of bonds to provide sufficient funds for the proposed Northern freeway between Mac i Arthur boulevard and Bradley boule vard was authorized today by the Board of Montgomery County Com missioners after a delegation of Bradley Hills residents had re quested delay until they could de termine the exact location of the route. The commissioners adopted the resolution submitted last week by Park Commissioner E. Brooke Lee after Commissioner William H. Prescott moved to defer action for one week until Bradley Hills resi dents could confer with the State Roads Commission in Baltimore. Richard H. Lansdale, however, moved a substitute resolution to ap prove Mr. Lee's plan, but added an amendment declaring it to be the sense of the board that the freeway should not pass through a developed subidvision. Preseott Refuses to Vote. The substitute motion carried, with Mr. Prescott not recorded as voting. The Bradley Hills delegation, headed by Louis A. Gravelle. asked the commissioners to postpone the authorization of funds until after the exact route of the dual-lane, limited-access highway has been established by the State Road Com mission and the Federal Public Roads Administration. Chairman Alfred D. Noyes told the delegation the mere act of author izing funds, which the State is to repay the county later, does not in itself constitute an approval of j a tentatively established route within an 800-foot wide strip pass ing through Bradley Kills. In response to a question from Preston E. Wire, Mr. Noyes conceded . that once funds are made available to the State, the County Commis | sioners will have little if any say in the location of the freeway. $20 Court Fee Returned To Doris Duke Cromwell By the Associated Press NEWARK, N.

Horner The United States is willing to treat the government of Argen tine President-elect Juan D. Peron as a “good neighbor” if it will act like one. This is the eflcct of a new bid for complete Western Hemisphere har mony made public by Secretary of State Byrnes late yesterday with the concurrence of a majority of the other American republics. Mr. Byrnes issued a memorandum disclosing willingness to sign a hemispheric defense, pact with the new government of Argentina pro vided it carries out with "deeds and not merely promises” its inter American commitments, especially Its pledge to eliminate Axis in fluences. Previously the United States had refused to negotiate such a pact with the present Farrell military regime in Argentina and had denounced Col. Peron, “strong man” of that regime, as a leader in an alleged conspiracy to give the Nazis a post war foothold in the Americas. The offer of another chance to Col. Peron apparently was forced by the attitude of other American re publics following his recent victory in an election which all sides agreed was conducted fairly. The State Department said some of the other American governments fully agreed with the United States Blue Book charges against Col. Peron and the Argentine military regime but “others emphasized the changed position resulting from the recent election.” All the other Americas heard from so far—a majority of the 21 Re publics—agree with the United States memorandum making Argen t tine participation in the projected new hemisphere defense pact con ditional upon prompt fulfillment of her previous commitments, the de partment said. “Those undertakings are plain and unequivocal,” the document released by Mr. Byrnes asserted. “They require the elimination from this hemisphere of Axis influences which have threatened the security of the inter-American system "Were such unequivocal and sus tained performance to ensue, the road w'ould then be open to that ‘complete unity of the peoples of America,’ and the negotiation and signature of a mutual assistance pact. But there must be deeds and not merely promises.” The statement said it is not clear that the recent Argentine elections will remove the conditions which had caused the United States “great embarrassment and concern" in its relations with Argentina, but de clared this Government does not believe the Argentine people “in tended to approve the continuance of conditions which would threaten the safety of the inter-American system.” It expressed hope that a confer ence to negotiate the proposed de fense pact, originally scheduled to be held in Rio de Janiero last Octo ber but postponed indefinitely, can be called after the new Argentine government “has had a reasonable ume” to comply with its anti-Axis good neighbor promises. 41 Japanese Surrender To Filipinos on Lubang By the Associated Press MANILA, April 9.—Sullen and suspicious, 41 Japanese soldiers have surrendered to American-led Fili pino forces on Lubang Island, the Army announced today.

First race 2 p.m I Council Jurisdiction Of Iran Issue Breaks Charter, Reds Charge By the Associated Press LONDON, April 9—The Soviet government newspaper Izvestia sa C today that the United Nations Se curity Council, by retaining juris diction of the Russian-Iran dispute! "broke the Charter of the Unite'' Nations Organization.” Izvestia, quoted by thp Mosel:, radio in a broadcast heard here, re iterated the views expressed yester day by the Communist organ Prav da and declared that a bilateral agreement between Russia and Iran vincicated the Soviet policy and would "strengthen international peace and security." Izvestia said "progressive circles and the press" in Iran had received news of the agreement "with great satisfaction." It quoted Iranian newspaper as saying the “agreement carries a hard blow against war mongers and reactionary elements, since it takes out of their hand their most important weapon of propaganda against the Soviet Un ion." Izvestia said the Security Council had no right to consider the ques tion, because Soviet-Iranian rela tions did not "contain one grain of that threat <to international peace; which is mentioned” in the United Nations Charter. The placing of the question be fore the Security Council, it said, “was actually in part called forth by a tendency of Iranian reaction aries not to allow a definite solution of Soviet-Iranian relations and to reap advantage from arificial ag gravation of relations between the Soviet Union and other great pow ers." Iranian Agreement Remains Russia's Top News Story MOSCOW. April 9 VP,.—The new Russian-Iranian agreement re mained the chief news story today in the Russian press and Russians generally seemed to feel that the outcome completely vindicated the Soviet Union’s handling of Hie dis pute with Iran. Publication of messages exchanged between Prime Minister Stalin and Iranian Premier Ahmed Qavam, and between Qavam and Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov, gave the Russian public the feeling that relations with Iran were at their best level in many years. Foreign observers expressed belief the Russian government was reso 'ute in its stand that the Iranian question had no business remaining on the agenda of the United Nations Security Council and that it would insist that the matter be dropped. Some observers took the view that further efforts to keep tf^e issue alive might cause bad feelings in Moscow.
