On the Other Hand'
Teachers Launch Plan to Make
Pay Problem Clear to Parents
A remarkable three-way educational program is getting un
der way throughout the country this month. It is designed to
educate teachers, pupils and parents. At the same time it is
Intended to extend the benefits teachers have been winning for
themselves through their local revolts, or strikes.
Ostensibly it is a campaign to persuade more and better high
school students to take up teaching4
as a profession. This may seem a
strange undertaking while the teach
ers almost everywhere are still dem
onstratlng that
teaching Is
the worst paid
of all profes
sions. Yet that
le the purpose.
Only 4he cream
of the gradua·
ting classes, the
top one-third, is
to be exposed to
the campaign of
persuasion.
Sponsor
lng this effort is
the teachers'
own osganiza
tion, the Na
tional Education Association, and
the national organization of parent
teacher associations. The assis
tance of every sort of local civic
organizations will be sought. In
epite of the bad pay, the best boys
and girls will be asked to enroll
In teachers' colleges and train them
eelves to meet a national need.
The need, thanks to the teachers'
revolt, is gradually becoming under
stood. Some of the facte are: Thç
Nation has lost, above normal ex
pectations, 350,000 qualified teach
ers since 1941. They have gone into
work that offers more promise of
meeting the cost of living. There
are now about 75,000 teaching posi
tions unfilled and about 100.000 posi
tions occupied by teachers who do
not meet even the minimum stand
ards of education and training for
their Jobs.
Situation Growing Worse.
And tlie situation is getting worse.
Fewer and fewer students are en
tering teachers' colleges with the
purpose of becoming teachers. Be
cause other colleges are over-filled,
war veterans have enrolled in teach
ers' colleges under the Federal GI
Bill of Rights, but not many plan
to make teaching their life work
During the present term there are
only 71000 girls studying to become
teachers, whereas the average dur
ing the preceding 5 years was 91,
000.
So the effort will be, In the vil
lages, towns and cities, to work on
the civic sense of the boys and girls
who have reached the point of
thinking about their future and are
making up their minds about the
kind of college they will enter. Of
these, however, only those who re
veal special ability will be consid
ered teacher material. It is on them
that the heat will be poured. In
one way and another they will be
given to understand the importance
of teaching, its dignity as a profes
sion and the satisfactions it offers.
Obviously this is not going to be
easy. If the ambitious students
havent learned from recent des
perate demonstrations what the
monthly pay check is like in most
places, they will be asking now.
There may have been a tinrc when
youngsters took things like that for
granted, but children of the present
generation are growing up conscious
of the cost of living and are think*·
ing about how to meet it when out
in the world on their own.
Questions to Be Expected.
So parente and other well wishers,
as they undertake their heart-to
heart talks, are bound to hear some
embarrassing questions. How much
does teaching pay? Why doesn't it
pay more? What are you going to
do about the pay?
I suspect it is the last question
that the organizers of the campaign
are secretly hoping every student
will ask. They want the pressure
of the parents in support of greater
local expenditures for schools. Few
teachers are convinced that their
own communities cannot raise more
money for salaries. They see money
being spent lavishly for other pur
poses, including the pleasures and
luxuries of life.
Not having succeeded in making
parents understand that more of
that money must be diverted to thp
schools, they are looking to the chil
dren themselves to put the idea
across.

3 Fascists Sentenced,
Ending Malteotti Case
By th· Associated Frttt
ROME. April δ.—Italy's 23-year
old Matteottl murder case was
marked closed today with the sen
tencing of three Fascists and the
acquittal of two others.
A Rome, court last night convicted
Amerigo Dumlnl, Amleto Poveromo
and Giuseppe Viola of the political
killing of antl-rascist Deputy Gia
como Matteottl and sentenced them
to 30 years In prison. They had
served time before for the same
crime. The court acquitted Cesare
Rossi and Francesco Glunta.
Their two-month trial wound up
a long-drawn-out prosecution of a
list of accused that once numbered
73—Including Benito Mussolini
many of them now dead. Earlier
in the trial, Filippo Filippelli and
Filippo Panzeri had been found
guilty of complicity in the slaying
but had been granted "amnesty of
the republic." Augusto Malacria, an
eighth defendant, was shown to
have died. Viola, Filippelli and
Malacria were tried In absentia.
Matteottl, a Socialist whose criti
cisms In the Chamber of Deputies
had threatened to topple Mussolini's
Fascist state, vanished June 1, 1924,
and was found dead and mutilated
near Rome several weeks later.
On the witness stand, Dumini
said he and four others seized
Matteottl while the deputy walked
beside the Tiber River near his home,
beat him so badly he died and car
ried his body around in an auto
mobile for seven hours before finally
deciding to bury him In a shallow
roadside grave.

Izvestia Charges U. S.
Is Penetrating Italy
By the Astociated Prist
MOSCOW, April 5.—The United
States was accused in Izvestia today
of seeking economic penetration of
Italy.
"In invading countries of the
Mediterranean Basin, the dollar ap
plies different tactics," R. Robin
wrote in the Soviet government
newspaper.
"In Italy, American monopolists
[have selected the tactic of 'peace
ful economic penetration'."
Mr. Morln said James C. Dunn,
American Ambassador to Italy,
I turned "mouthpiece for such a
policy" in a recent Milan speech.
He added that what Mr. Dunn
failed to say was said for him by
newspapers of "Italian reaction"
and quoted Italian editorial com
ment expressing hope of aid for
Italy such as the United States con
templates for Greece and Turkey
and painting what he called "a
tempting picture of an 'Italian
Greek-Turkish' bloc' under the
United States of America."
Italian Premier Alcide de Gasperi
last night told 'a news conference
i that Italy could not balance its
budget without foreign aid and that
he hoped the American Greece
; Turkey program would not mean
"a reduction in aid to us." He de
i clared that if Italy's economic crisis
became too bad, there might be "no
other remedy but dictatorship."

learn how a 14-ton tractor broke
loose from its moorings on a rail
road flat car and fell in the path
of a speeding Burlington Railroad
streamliner, causing the deaths of
two persons as the train was de
railed.
Witnesses saw the tractor topple
from a weet-bound freight train
a few seconds before the eight-car
Twin City Zephyr, running from
Minneapolis-St. Paul to Chicago at

Parley on Improving
Artificial Limb Design
To Open Here April 14
Aroused by the Deeds of World
War II amputees to intensify the
search for better artificial limbs,
leaders in prosthetics research from
throughout the country will as
semble here this month to report
their progress.
The meeting, called by the Com
mittee on Artificial Limbs of the
National Research Council, will be
gin April 14.^
Contractors studying improve
ments in current mechanical limbs
will bring laboratory models of the
latest proposed modifications. After
reviewing the work accomplished in
each field for a week, the committee
will decide which projects are
worthy of continued research.
Some models incorporating the
most efficient design features may
be recommended to the War De
partment and the Veterans' Admin
istration for service testing on am
putation victims.
No "Miracle*" expected.
Committee spokesmen expect no
overnight "miracles." The task of
research is slow and arduous, they
emphasize. <Vet they undérstand
and sympathize with the amputee
who wants quick results.
"A length of time considered as
mere seconds by a research man,"
it is recognized by an Army pros
thetics expert, "Seems like years to
an amputee."
While research men know they
can never hope to give the amputa
tion victim a limb "as good as new,"
they have come a long way from the
days when a peg leg was the emblem
of the old soldier or seaman.
The Army prosthetics research
laboratory at the Army Medical
Center, whose models will be among
those studied, affords a demonstra
tion of what can be accomplished in
little more than a year of Intensive
study.
Concentrating chiefly on arm
prostheses, Army technicians have
developed a mechanical hand capa
ble of grasping fragile objects,
lifting heavy ones and performing
the essential functions that enable
a man to be Independent of outside
aid in his dally living activities.
Lifelike Glove Fitted.
To fit over this mechanical mar
\el. Army scientists have devised a
cosmetic glove so lifelike in appear
ance as to be almost indistinguish
able from a normal hand at ordinary
speaking distance. Artists repro
duce the skin color, veins and fin
gernails with amazing fidelity, and
even implant tiny hairs to heighten
the illusion of flesh.
The source of power for the man
who has lost his hand and part of
his arm is provided by the muscles
of his opposite shoulder.
The arm appliance is fastened to
the stump of the injured limb. A
spring links the mechanical hand
to a strap that fits around the op
posite shoulder. An almost imper
ceptible shoulder movement causes
the artificial fingers to contract or
expand, according to the amputee's
desire.
"Automatic Gear-Shift.
These principles are not new in
artificial limb manufacture. What
Army research has contributed,
however, is an "automatic gear
shift" which enables the wearer of
the device to inéïease finger-tip
; pressure to a point considerably in
excess of models in current use, yet
eliminates much of the jerky motion
characteristic of other devices.
For each pound of pressure ex
erted by the shoulder muscles, the
wearer of the Army device will get
a pound of finger-tip pressure. This
makes it easier for him to Judge
the strength he must expend on dif
ferent tasks than in current models
where great shoulder pressure is re
quired to produce relative low fin
ger-tip pressure.
The Army model also has a device
which permits the wearer, by press
ing down on his artificial thumb,
to lock it in place while the first
two fingers contract against it—a
feature which facilitates grasping
and lifting objects.
First to Undertake Job.
First to undertake the job at the
Army Medical Center after the
Secretary of War ordered the arti
ficial limb project in the fall of 1M5
was Lt. Col. Donald B. Slocum.
Lt. Col. Slocum was an ortho
pedic surgeon in charge of all ampu
tations at Walter Reed Hospital.
The research project was an "addi
tional duty." His staff at first con
sisted of only two enlisted dental
technicians. Together, they began
experiments with a plastic hand.
On October 4, 1945, Maj. Maurice
J. Fletcher was assigned to the re
search, which he has helped super
vise ever since. Originally a cav
alry officer, he had been detailed to
ordnance work during the war. He
brought to his new assignment a
lifetime interest ίη mechanical
problems.
Moving into a building which had
been evacuated by the WACS, Maj.
Fletcher began to assemble a staff
of civilian technicians and Army
men from nearly every branch of the
service. Veterans of the infantry,
Signal Corps, engineers, chemical
warfare, Adjutant General's Divi
sion and Medical Administrative
Corps participated in the research.
In large part, they constructed their
own equipment.
Now numbering 33, the Army re
search team will move this summer
to the Forest Glenn annex of the
Medical Center, where a building
formerly used for vocational training
of patients is being converted for
their needs.

Young, Bowman Seek
flight to Sit on Board
Of New York Central
•y the Associated Press f
Robert J. Bowman, president, and
Robert R. Young, board chairman
of the Chesapeake Ac Ohio Rail
road, yesterday asked authority of
the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion to sit on the board ,of the
Mew York Central Railroad.
The two have been invited by
New York Central to take the places.
Interstate Commerce Commission
approval is required for holding di
rectorships on more than one car
rier.
Tfte icc saia uie v. « υ.
and New York Central lines
are "essentially complementary to
each other." Bach serves a differ
ent part of the Eastern territory
and, the petition said, "the oppor
tunities for effective competition
between them is relatively limited."
Mr. Bowman and Mr. Young listed
their individual stock ownership In
New York Central at 300 common
shares each, and said the Chesa
peake èc Ohio line was "the bene
ficial owner of 400,000 shares or 6.2
per cent of the total outstanding
capital stock of New York Central."
Mr. Young, who now controls the
C. & O., Nickel Plate and Pere Mar
quette Railroads through the Alle
gheny Corp., a holding company,
Indicated in his petition that he
Intended to obtain control of New
York Central. He gave notice that
in that event he was ready to divest
himself of the Nickel Plate.
New York Central and Nickel
Plate operate in competitive terri
tory, and Mr. Young said recently
that negotiations were under way
for Nickel Plate's acquisition by the
Pennsylvania Railroad.
Apparently, as a preliminary to
these moves, Chesapeake & Ohio,
an Allegheny corporation, asked the
ICC today to permit some rear
rangement of the voting trust which
the ICC required Allegheny to aet
up several years ago with the Chase
National Bank of New York. Under
that requirement Allegheny must
deposit with the bank stocks In rail
roads other than those directly con

The hank exercises the voting
privileges. t
The petition asked authority to
withdraw the New York Central
stock owned by C. & O. from the
voting trust and substitute Nickel
Plate stock for it. C. & O. owns 57
per cent of the Nickel Plate stock.
British Still in Greece,
Izvestia Complains
By th· Associated Press
MOSCOW, April 5.—The news
paper Izvestia asserted today that
British troops had not left Greece
yet and that "the British military
mission is still giving instructions
to Greek ministers."
R. Morin, the writer, said this sit
uation was causing considerable
puzzlement among Greek command
ers, who were worrying over the
contemplated presence of two mili
tary missions in Greece—American
and British.
(On March 21 government
sources in London said Britain
would continue some economic
and military assistance to Greece
until aid from the United States
became effective.)
Mr. Morin quoted a Greek Gen.
Merentidis as complaining about
British practices and their "absurd
interference into questions concern
ing the personnel of the army."
"Merentidis is trying in vain.
With his old and new bosses he was
and will remain merely an excutor
of other wills," said the writer.
LONDON, April 5 (A3).—A Foreign
Office spokesman, commenting on
an Izvestia report that British offi
cers are directing Greek Army ac
tivities, said today that a small
British military mission will remain
in Greece for some time- to advise
Greek troops guarding the nation's
northern border.
"But Great Britain's military pol
icy in Greece, opeMy announced
and thoroughly discussed, will be
carried out," the spokesman said.
"We are getting out, as will become
obvious in due course. Meanwhile,
we expect that America will elect to
inc* "ise her influence in Greece."

Siamese Reception Celebrates
Rise From Legation to Embassy
By A mm Clint
There «w mum for great oele
bration at the Siamese Embassy
last evening. Until March 17, the
residence at 3300 Kalorama road
was a Legation, but now It has been
raised to the status'of an Bmbassy.
His Royal Highness, Prince Wan
Waithayakon, is expected in this
city some time this month to fill
the ambassadorial poet.
Last evening the Chaîne d'Af
faires, Mr. Thanat Khoman, was
host at the reception commemorat
ing this occasion and Mme. Kun
jara, wife of the Military and Air
Attache, served as his hostess. They
received the guests while Lt. Col.
Kunjara and other members of the
Embassy staff saw to it that the
guests were well taken care of.
It was in 1856 that friendship,
commerce and navigation were first
established between Siam and the
United States. And almost 30 years
later—1885, to be exact—the first
diplomatic relations were estab
lishecf between the two countries.
His Royal Highness, Prince Nares,
son of King Mongkut, was named
nonresident Minister to this coun
try, with headquarters in England,
where he also was Minister.
The first Minister assigned to this
country was Phaya Akrarah, who
came here in 1904. In 1918, Phaya
Prabha was named Minister to
Washington, and it was he who de
signed the present home of the
! Embassy, which was built in 1920.
Mme. Kunjara was very charm
ing in her lavender gown, trimmed
in exquisite Siamese material of
crepe woven with gold thread. She
wore a small lavender orchid corsage,
and a gold and lavender Siamese
necklace was the final touch to a
lovely ensemble.
The wife of the Military Attache
was so excited she was beside her
self, for she is leaving by plane
this afternoon for the first visit to
her homeland in six years. She's
just known since Thursday that she
was going to leave today, and need
less to say she's been very rushed
trying to get ready. Her trip, in
cluding the time going and com
ing, win keep her from Washing
ton for «bout » month.
Included among the guests drop
ping by were the British Minister
and Lady Magowan, the Philippine
Minister and Mrs. Ramos, the Swed
ish Minister and Mme. Eriksson,
the Indian Minister, Mr. B. R. Sen;
Mr. Stanley K. Hornbeck, former
United States Ambassador to The
Hague; the Commissioner of the
Bureau of Reclamation and Mrs.
Michael W. Strauss and Mr. and
Mrs. Walter Wyatt and their daugh
ter, Laura Belle.
All of the Siamese Military Mis
sion, whose return home has been
postponed until next week, were
there and so was Maj. Vernon
Hathorn, the American officer who
has traveled with the Mission on
their tour of the United States. He
was accompanied by Mrs. Hathorn.
Lt. Col. Carlos Melick, who ar
