Sy the A«*ocioted Press
DETROIT. Aug. 26—A full

by a practice bomb.
The planes, piloted by Reserve
officers on a week end training mis
sion, were from the Grosse lie Naval
Air Station. Navy officials said they
apparently mistook the white boat
for their similar-appearing floating
Planes Made Three Bombing Runs.
Albert Reisig of Toledo, owner of
the cruiser, suffered minor burns
and shock.
Charles Desmond, secretary of the
Ottawa River Yacht Club, who
talked to the men w'hen they came
l ashore, said they told him the planes
1 made three hnrr-hi::; runs.
“On the first rati three of the
bombs were dropped but none came
close,' he said. "Only two bombs
were dropped on the second run.
“The third time they came down
one of the bombs struck at the wa
ter line near the gas tank. Several
of the men jumped overboard."
Crash Boat Rescues Men.
A Navy crash boat, which a
spokesman said was in the area to
warn off pleasure craft, rescued the
men—George W. McKinley, Prank

of Toledo; A. S. Prance of Fremont,
i Ohio, and C. M. Caldwell and H. S.
I Presch of Swanton, Ohio.

\at $5,000.
, Comdr. F. A. Brossy, executive
I officer at Grosse lie. said prelimi
nary investigation indicated one of
the pilots was at fault in not posi

pending completion of the investi
Comdr. Brossy said the area where
the mishap occurred—near West
Sister Island, about 20 miles east of
Toledo and about 10 miles from •
the Ohio shore—was in the danger j

actual target. ]
Mr. Desmond said the fishermen 1
told him that they were in an area
where free passage is afforded.
Comdr. Brossy said the practice ]
bombs weigh about 2 pounds and 1
contain enough powder to send outj]

Truman Is Working
On Composition of
Atomic Energy Board
By Joseph A. Fox
Star Staff Correspondent
HAMILTON. Bermuda, Aug. 26.—
President Truman today is working
on the composition of the Atomic
Energy Control Commission w’hile
holidaying on the yacht Williams
However, Press Secretary Charles
G. Ross said the membership of the
five-man group will not be an
nounced before the return of the
President to Washington on Labor
Day even if completed before then.
The President has been having
difficulty making selections. Mr.
Ross was asked if he believed the
five could be lined up by the time
the vacation ended. He replied he
“could not go that far.” Indica
tions are that some choices may
have been made, but all will be an
nounced simultaneously.
The President was host at lunch
today aboard the Williamsburg to
Rear Admiral George R. Henderson,
base commander, and Capt. William
K. Rhodes, chief of staff, who have
been shepherding the presidential
press party on the island.
Plans New Fishing Trip,
Mr. Truman is enthusiastic over
the results of his first fishing trip
here, and Mr. Ross said the Presi
dent is going to make another try
tomorrow, weather permitting.
Mr. Ross admitted that luck at
tending Mr. Truman’s first fishing
trip Friday had "gone to his head.”
Mr. Ross said the Chief Executive
was going to make an effort to estab
lish himself as a first-class fisher
man and live down the reputation
arising from an unsuccessful effort
on Puget Sound a year ago.
Spends Quiet Week End.
The President spent a quiet week
end aboard the Williamsburg, break
ing a swimming and reading rou
tine to attend Sunday services at
Bermuda's Holy Trinity Episcopal
Cathedral, an imposing structure of
Caen (Normandy) stone and native
coral, with lines strikingly similar
to those of the Washington Ca
There he heard the venerable
Bishop of Bermuda, the Rt. Rev.
Arthur Heber Browne, pray God’s
blessing on “our sovereign lord.
King George, our gracious Queen
Elizabeth, the President of the
United States and all who are set
in authority among English speak
ing peoples.”
Prays for U. N. Success
It was the only reference to the
President, Bishop Browne feeling
that this simple recognition of Mr.
Truman's presence would be in con
formity with his desires.
In his sermon, the 82-year-old
prelate voiced hopes for success
of the United Nations and for a
solution to the Palestinian problem.
By coincidence, the epistle for
the 10th Sunday after Trinity, read
by the Governor, Admiral Sir
Ralph Leatham, was part of the
ritual incorporated in the White
House east room religious ceremony
Janurary 20, 1945, when Mr. Truman
was sworn In as Mr. Rosevelt’s
fourth term running mate.
Runaway rather Ready
To Return to Stamford
By the Associated Press
MILFORD. Pa., Aug. 26.—A 45
year-old auditor of Stamford, Conn.,
who admitted disappearing with his
four sons and a 3-year-old Chinese
boy in order "to attract attention so
I could try and find my wife,” pre
pared to return to Connecticut today
to face charges in connection with
the “disappearance.”
Prosecutor P. Lawrence Epifanio
said in Stamford yesterday he had
issued a w'arrant for the arrest of
Abraham Kohn, the auditor, on a
charge of "woefully and unlawfully
permitting a minor under 16 to be
placed under such a situation that
his life is endangered or his health
is likely to be injured."
Mr. Kohn, together with his sons,
whose ages range from 6 to 14, and
the Chinese boy, were taken into
custody Saturday night by Pennsyl
vania State police here. They dis
appeared Friday, leaving a row'boat
drifting in long Island Sound near
Mamaroneck, N. Y., as a “clue” to
their whereabouts.
The auditor said he would "gladly
1 waive extradition” and return to
' Stamford with police officers.
Meanwhile, Mr. Kohn discounted a
theory that his wife was in Denver
after police said they believed a
letter received by a relative from
Mrs. Kohn, postmarked Denver, had
been sent there to a friend of Mrs.
iKohn and remailed.

Colin Kelly Identified i
After Years in Grave
As 'Unknown Soldier'
After lying nearly five years in
a Philippine grave marked simply
as that of an “unknown soldier,"
the body of Colin P. Kelly, jr., the
AAF’s first outstanding hero of
World War II, has been positively
identified and now is buried in a
United States military cemetery in
The young Florida pilot, whose
feat of thrice bombing a Japanese
battleship of the Haruna class
helped strengthen the hopes of
Americans in the blackest days after
Pearl Harbor, crashed to his death
at Mount Arayat, about 5 miles east
of Clark Field, Luzon, while return
ing from a flying mission against
Jap naval units on December 10,
The War Department last night
revealed how the body of the first
flyer to be awarded the Distinguished
Service Cross in World War II was
identified and given reburial with
military honors.
Found Near Dead Sergeant.
Capt. Kelly was one of an eight
man crew of a B-17 Flying Fortress
which went out on its final mission
to bomb Japanese naval units. Be
fore the crash on the return trip,
six of the crewmen bailed out. The
body which now has been identified
as that of Capt. Kelly was found
at the time near the body of T/Sergt.
William J. Delehanty of Brooklyn,
N. Y. Identification of Sergt. Dele
hanty was made through the sol
dier's "dog tag" which he was wear
ing. There were no identification
tags found on Capt. Kelley s body.
The two men were first buried
in the post cemetery at Fort Stotsen
burg, Luzon. Recently, they were
taken to Manila, with the bodies of
86 other soldiers, and buried in the
No. 1 military cemetery in Manila.
Earlier the body of Capt. Kelly
had been "tentatively” identified
on the evidence of a Filipino who:
had heard an Army sergeant say,
"Why, that’s Capt. Kelly.” Fur
ther identification was rendered;
impossible at the time because of
the accelerated progress of the war
and the subsequent loss of the
Records Carefully Checked.
When the war ended a careful in
vestigation was started by Graves
Registration Command officers.
Records in their possession were
checked against those made during
Capt. Kelly’s services in this coun
try following his graduation from
West Point in 1933. His widow, now
Mrs. J. Watson Pedlow, a resident
of Media, Pa., and his father, Colin
P. Kelly of Madison, Fla., also sup
plied the War Department with
identification information.
"The painstaking care with which
the remains of Capt. Kelly were
eventually identified is typical of
the consideration given every case
where there is a question as to
identity,” said Maj. Gen. T. B.
Larkin, the quartermaster general,
charged with administration of the
American Graves Registration Serv
The heroic deed for which Capt.
Kelly was awarded the D. S. C.
later developed into a Nation-wide
demand that he be given the Con
gressional Medal of Honor. The
D. S. C. was awarded posthumously
and the young pilot was credited
only with three direct bomb hits
on the Japanese battleship although
Gen. MacArthur in a communique
issued December 11, 1941, “con
firmed” the sinking of the 29,000-ton
The late President Roosevelt on
December 17 aroused American sen
timent when he made public a let
ter he had written to the future
“occupant of the White House,”
asking that Capt. Kelly's young son,
Wick, be given an appointment to
West Point in honor of his father's
memory, when he became of age.

Baptist Leader Is Picketed
After Kind Words for Russia

Also Attacked by
Missouri Layman
• y th» Auociatsd Pr«»i
ATLANTA. Aug. 26— Dr. Louie D.
Newton, president of the Southern
Baptist Convention, who spent 25
days in Russia, delivered a report
on his visit before a Baptist mass
meeting yesterday and said he found
"what appears to be complete free
dom of worship.”
The minister’s earlier reports led
a layman from Missouri, O. K. Arm
strong of Springfield, to observe in a
speech at Waycross, Ga„ that “noth
ing could be further from the truth.”
Two pickets marched before the en
trance to the Atlanta Municipal
Auditorium bearing placards read
ing, “Is Louie D. Newton Selling
Communism to the U. S. A.?”
Both pickets were removed from
the entrance by police. Police Capt.
W. M. Weaver said the men were re
leased without charges and that
both refused to identify themselves.
Mr. Armstrong, a magazine writer
and a member of the Committee of
Baptists at the San Francisco United
Nations Conference, based his re
marks on earlier published reports
on the trip by Dr. Newton.
“The plain inference” of Dr. New
ton’s statements was “that under
Soviet Communism, Baptists have
freedom of religious worship,” Mr.
Armstrong declared.
“Nothing could be further from
the truth,” he added. “To Baptists
freedom to practice religion means
freedom to preach without censor

in government, ana ireeaom to re
ceive and send missionaries in an<V
out of the country. Would Dr. New
ton have us believe any such free
doms exist under Communist rulej’’
Dr. Newton told his audience:
“Great crowds attended the serv
ices where I preached and a spirit
of freedom seemed to characterize
every preacher and every believer."
Dr. Newton also said, “I came
home from Russia more deeply
committed to the doctrine of de
mocracy than ever before, and I
went to Russia believing in democ
racy with all my heart * * *.
“I tell you I do not believe Com
munism is the answer to the world’s
great need. I tell you I believe de

Price Control Return
Perils Meat Supply,
C. of C. Head Says
The return to Government price
control is going to reduce the Amer
ican meat supply, William K. Jack
son. president of the United States
Chamber of Commerce, declared
today in an article in Business Ac
tion, weekly report of the Chamber
of Commerce. The article says
businessmen interpret the recontrol
order on meat as meaning it is "on
the road to the black market.”
In another statement issued to
day the organization called for a
rapid reduction of the number of
Government employes as one way
to attain a balanced Federal budget,
lower taxes and rapid retirement of
the public debt.
On the meat situation, Mr. Jack
son was quoted as saying, "Meat
prices are to be dictated from Wash
ington while the prices on mo6t
grains, important in meat produc
tion, are to be free to move at will.
This will drain more grain into
production not under control.”
Questions Effectiveness.
"The order unquestionably will
reduce the meat supply.” he added.
Paul Porter, Office of Price Ad
ministration administrator, has pro
posed to clamp down on black mar
keteers and to use 2,500 enforce
ment agents for checking move
ments of meat from rancher to con
sumer, Mr. Jackson said. But he
"Old-timers who remember how
enforcement of prohibition worked
are inclined toward a show-me
In the statement asking for cuts
in Government expense, it was said
that "it was of crucial importance
that Congress curtail Government
expenditures, which are the key to
the problems of lower taxes, reduced
debt and a stable fiscal system.”
The abolition of all war or other
activities no longer needed and de
ferment of any new expensive un
dertakings were recommended.
Proposed Budget Called High.
The statement pointed out that
“the proposed budget expenditures
for the fiscal year beginning July 1.
1946, are disappointingly high ana
would mean further deficit which
should be avoided by requirement
that expenditures not exceed rev
enues." . j
On the question of taxation, the
statement said: “A stable, equitable
and workable system, which permits
replenishment of well-sprinfs of ,"
enterprise, should be devised. While
large revenues are essential, they
should be sought with a minimum
of braking effect upon incentives to
production and trade.”
"The burden of taxation should be
widely and equitably distributed to
reach all sections of the public and
all forms of economic activity."
The Chamber of Commerce called
for early establishment by Congress
of a definite public-debt policy which .
would provide for rapid retirement
of the debt consistent with expand
ing economy.
