Concern Over Russia
Seen in Bohlen Choice

To Succeed Cohen
Selection of Charles E. Bohlen,
personal adviser on Russian affairs
to four Secretaries of State, to suc
ceed Benjamin V. Cohen as Coun
selor of the State Department was
seep today as a new indication of
official concern over relations with
the Soviet Union.
President Truman announced the
resignation of Mr. Cohen late yes
terday, ending 14 years of Govern
ment service for the last of the orig
inal "brain trust” of early Roose
velt administration days.
The President immediately nom
inated Mr. Bohlen, 42-year-old vet
eran of 17 years in the foreign serv
ice, during which he became known
as one of America's two top ex
perts on Russia, to take his place
in the high-ranking post.
The Senate Foreign Relations
Committee gave quick approval to
day to the nomination.
Was Adviser to Roosevelt.
Mr. Bohlen acted as adviser to
the late President Roosevelt and to
President Truman and interpreter
in their talks with Soviet Prime
Minister Stalin at all the war-time
Big Three conferences.
After three periods of duty in the
American Embassy in Moscow, Mr.
Bohlen was chief of the State De
partment's Eastern European Affairs
Division in 1944 when former Secre
tary of State Hull selected him as a
Russian specialist in the American
delegation to the Dumbarton Oaks
conversations that led to creation of
the United Nations.
He continued in a special advisory
capacity with succeeding Secretaries
Stettinius, Byrnes and Marshall. His
appointment to the counselor post,
giving him rank on a par with an
Assistant Secretary, was asked by
Gen. Marshall.
Resignation Effective July 31.
Mr. Cohen, who with Thomas
(Tommy the Cork) Corcoran, formed
the famous team of advisers to Mr.
Roosevelt in the early New Deal, was
brought into the State Department
by Mr. Byrnes in 1945. His resigna
tion, contemplated since Mr. Byrnes
stepped out of official life last Jan
uary, is effective July 31.
Mr. Cohen wrote Mr. Truman that
after 14 years he wished "to take a
rest from all official responsibilities.”
The former “brain truster” worked
closely with the White House as a
special assistant to four Attorneys
General between 1933 and 1941.
when he went to London as legal
adviser in the American Embassy.
Returning to Washington in 1942,
he became general counsel f6r Mr.
Byrnes in the Office of Economic
Stabilization and later in the Office
of War Mobilization and Reconver
sion.
Was Fourth in State Department.
The post of Counselor in the State
Department has ranked No. 4—just
below the two Undersecretaries of
State and above the Assistant Sec
Secretaries. The White House said
departmental functions now will be
realigned so that the Counselor will
serve with the rank of Assistant
Secretary.
Mr. Bohlen's appointment to this
position averted airautomat)' .orans
fpr to a forpien nnst. at th pnri nf
this year under a statute limiting
Foreign Service Officers to four-year
assignments in Washington. The
law makes an exception for career
diplomats named to posts requiring
Senate confirmation.
This enables Gen. Marshall to
keep beside him the departments
two top experts on Russia—Mr.
Bohlen and George F. Kennan, who
now heads the Secretary’s special
policy planning staff.
The Senate Foreign Relations
Committee approved also the nomi
nation of John Carter Vincent of
Georgia, a career man, to be Min
ister to Switzerland. This selection
was announced by the President
yesterday also.
Mr. Vincent will succeed Leland
Harrison, 64, veteran career diplo
mat. The State Department an
nounced today that the President
had asked Mr. Harrison ’’to re
linquish” the Swiss post and return
to Washington where his “back
ground and long experience" might
be available in meeting daily prob
lems in European affairs. He is ex
pected to work with Assistant Sec
retary of State Armour as a special
assistant.

O'Dwyer Offers Help
To Queens Bus Lines
Tied Up by Strike
fty tho Associated Press
NEW YORK, July 22. —Mayor
William O'Dwyer, declaring that the
city “won't stand” for a bus strike
such as tied up St. Louis transpor
tation for two weeks last month, has
offered “all the protection neces
sary” for two struck bus companies
in the populous borough of Queens.
Struck Saturday by 700 drivers,
both lines had resumed token serv
ice last night with substitute driv
ers. Police rode the buses and
patrolled the routes. Normally each
line collects about 200,000 fares
daily and operates 120 buses.
Salvatore Fornatora, president of
the Triborough Coach Corp., said
six buses were put in service on
one of his lines last night, using as
drivers some of the 18 men hired
during the day. He predicted nor
mal service by the end of the week.
Green Bus Lines was able to op
erate 10 of its 14 lines yesterday,
largely using as drivers men who
became stockholders in the com
pany when it absorbed their inde
pendent bus lines in 1933. Some are
nonunion employes of the company.
Urges New Arbitrators.
A T QrtroHTino- infprna.Hnnal
president of the AFL Amalgamated
Association of Street, Electric Rail
way and, Motor .Cpach Employes,
suggested in a telegram to Mayor
OThvyer la£t night that appoint
ment ef a new arbitration board or
board chairman ‘‘would result in
an immediate resumption of work.”
Mr. Spradhng said that last
Thursday, at the opening of arbi
tration board hearings, the union
objected to the “arbitrary manner’
of the chairman, former Supreme
Court Justice Isador Wasservogel,
and union officers were assured by
the Mayor’s labor adviser, Edward
Maguire, that Mr.. Wasservogel
“would not wish to continue in a
case in which he did not have the
full confidence of both sides. • * *”
"This resignation did not occur on
Friday morning,” Mr. Spradling con
tinued. adding that although "this
office advised the men not to take
precipitate action, it was impossible
for them to follow that advice be
cause of the outrage they felt with
regard to the arbitration."
Mayor Assails Strikers.
The Mayor, in a statement issued
after the striking drivers had voted
yesterday to continue the strike, de
clared they had repudiated a no
strike agreement, had treated their
international officers “with con
temptuous disregard,” and were
“outlaws from the labor movement.”
In reply, officers of the striking
irrunrl n ri/i ♦ AW aw! KHitinn
that "responsibility for the ‘con
temptuous irresponsibility' and ‘utter
disregard’ of the public with which
the Mayor belabors the union lies
squarely in his office."
The two locals had demanded a
basic wage of $1.75 an hour, against
the $1.20 paid by Green Lines and
$1.13 by Triborough.

Use of Clock to Set Off
Explosion Shown at
Overell Death Trial
By th* Ass6ciot*d Press
SANTA ANA, Calif., July 22.—A
hushed courtroom was startled yes
terday as an alarm clock rang, com
pleting a circuit from a storage
battery to a detonator wire, and a
tiny trail of fire and blue smoke
shot into the air at the Overell
yacht murder trial.
Louise Overell, 18-year-old heir
ess, and her college sweetheart,
George (Bud) Gollum, 21, charged
with murdering her parents, smiled
as the prosecution presented for
the jury a demonstration recon
structing how it claims Mr. and
Mrs. Walter E. Overell’s yacht, the
Mary E, was dynamited after the
elderly couple had been budgeoned
with a hammer or a piece of pipe.
A 12-voit battery, a standard
household alarm clock and the de
tonator wire were on a counsel
table, directly in front of the jury,
while five minutes ticked away. As
the clock’s minute hand corre
sponded with the alarm hand, a bell
rang and the detonator cap set off
Its fiery charge.
Explosion - Contact Proven.
The demonstration proved, Prose
cutor Eugene D. Williams contended,
that a circuit could be completed
from a battery to a charge of dyna
mite.
P nrror roono nri m i n r\l r\cr\ cf fnr
the State Attorney General, con
ducted the experiment. He said the
alarm clock was identical with a
battered one found in the Mary E's
engine room, near 30 sticks of un
exploded dynamite. Investigators
previously estimated that three
sticks of unexploded dynamite. In
vestigators previously estimated
that three sticks exploded in the
blast.
Mr. Greene was to be cross-exam
ined further today. He will be fol
lowed to the stand by Ray Pinker,
Los Angeles police chemist. Mr.
Pinker is regarded as a key witness
for the prosecution.
“Key” Witness Will Not Testify.
It was he who told a grand jury
which indicted Gollum and Miss
Overell that he found bloodstains
on a leather flight jacket which the
State claims Gollum was wearing
March 15 shortly after the Overell
yacht blew up.
The prosecution disclosed that
Edward Louis Davis, sought for
months and finally located two
weeks ago in Wheeling, W. Va„ and
returned to Los Angeles, will Hot be
! used as a witness. Special Investiga
j tor James H. Mulvey said the United
States Attorney's office in Los An
i geles had been notified that Mr.
! Davis no longer is wanted as a wit
ness.
The State hunted Mr. Davis after
receiving reports he had been seen
, with Gollum in a Newport Beach
jcafe before the explosion.
Federal Divorce Law Urged
To Aid in Curbing Crime
By the Associated Pres*
auMittA, in. i., juiy n.—a New
York City criminologist urged today
that marriage, divorce and alimony
be placed under uniform Federal
laws to “strike at the roots of con
ditions that make for criminal lives;”
Dr. Carletoh Simon, in an address
at the opening of the annual confer
ence of the New York State Associa
tion of Chiefs of Police, assailed
“easy” marriage, divorce and ali
mony as “largely contributing fac
tors” to vice and crime.
He cited varying and conflicting
State laws and declared:
"No State line and no legal quib
bles should be permitted to dally
with fundamental principles under
lying marriage and divorce; nothing
should be permitted which affects
the moral health of our nation.”
Dr. Simon recommended a longer
waiting period between granting of
a license and marriage, limiting of
marriages to the counties in which
the couples reside, virtual abolition
of alimony, and granting of divorces
only for adultery or permanent in
sanity.
French Reds Seek to Ban
Official Fete for Mrs. Peron
By the Associated Press
PARIS, July 22.—French Com
munists and labor unions put pres
sure on the goverment today to ab
stain from holding an official re
v''Fi*uu 1 xvxio. vn. uuai i/c x'eron,
who arrived in Paris yesterday from
Lisbon.
Recalling that Mrs. Peron had
“just received the honors of” the
government of Gen. Franco of
Spain, the two groups issued a joint
statement saying:
"Out of respect toward the Span
ish people, who have suffered for
11 years in an attempt to regain
freedom and independence, the
French government should not re
ceive the wife of the President of
Argentina. She has reviewed
Franco’s troops, she has given the
Fascist salute and she has received
Franco’s decorations.”
The Argentine President’s wife
received a quiet welcome on her ar
rival at Orly Airfield yesterday, in
contrast to the ovations she had
been accorded during her visits in
Spain, Italy and Portugal.
She was met at the field by
French Foreign Minister Georges
Bidault and the Chilean Ambassa
dor, representing the South Ameri
can diplomatic colony.
Failure of Plot on Hitler
Laid to Bad British Fuse
By the Associated Press
LONDON. July 22.—Dr. Otto John,
n (jcriimii uumg special worx ior me
British Foreign Office, told a Lon
don meeting last night that Adolf
Hitler escaped assassination in
March, 1943, only because an Eng
lish-made fuse failed to set off a
bomb smuggled into his private
plane.
Dr. John said the fuse was at
tached lo a bomb constructed of
two cognac bottles addressed by a
high command officer to a friend at
field headquarters on the Eastern
front. The pilot of Hitler's plane
was persuaded to take the innocent
appearing package aboard just be
fore the plane took off from Berlin.
Dr. Johh declared that an anxious
wait followed as the plotters in
Berlin waited to hear that Hitler
had died in a mid-air explosion.
Instead, to their intense disappoint
ment, he said, word, came that the
plane had made a routine landing
at its destination.
The bomb subsequently was re
covered without its deadly nature
being discovered. Dr. John said, and
Investigation disclosed that the fusel
which the conspirators had obtained I
from English sources was defective.

U. N. Gets Appeal to Save J
Hungarian Doomed in Plot
By the Associated Press
GENEVA, Switzerland, July 22.—
Hungarian Republican circles here
said today that friends of Georges
Donath, a member of the Hungarian
Smallholders Party, had appealed to
United Nations Secretary General
Trygve Lie to save him from a death
sentence.
Donath was condemned recently
in Hungary for an alleged con
spiracy against the government—a
conspiracy which the Communists,
now in control, alleged was inspired
by former Premier Ferenc Nagy and;
other members of the Smallholders
Party.
The informants here said the ap
peal to Mr. Lie had been forwarded
in the name of Emre Veer, an oust
ed deputy of the Hungarian
National Assembly and chairman of!
the Republican League, who was last
reported living in exile in Austria.
Poll Tax Bill Backers
f
Expect Senate Action
Early in Next Session
By the Associated Pres*
The Senate Judiciary Committee
dusted. out a pigeonhole today to j
keep the House-passed anti-poll tax'
bill handy until its backers decide
to expose it to a new fllilbuster.
That will not be this session, which
is slated to end Saturday. But there j
ie mtorr TnHTnotirm t.baf. t.VlP
will act promptly when it reconvenes
in January.
Three times previously the House
has passed similar bills only to have
them killed by Senate filibusters.
Republicans, who drove the bill to
House passage yesterday over the
objections of Southern Representa
tives, said present plans call for
speedy Senate action in 1948. in time
to put the bill onto the law books
for next year's Congressional bal- f
loting.
Privately, they said they hope the j
law will be helpful in unseating
some Democrats in the seven so
called poll tax States of Texas, Ten
nessee, Virginia, South Carolina, Ar
kansas, Mississippi and Alabama.
The House-passed bill would make
it illegal for any State or local gov
ernment to require payment of a
poll tax as a requirement for voting
in a presidential or congressional
election.
The measure sailed through the
House by a count of 290 to 112, or
22 votes more than the two-thirds
required under the procedure that
brought the bill to a vote out of its
regular order.
Led by Representative Bender,
Republican, of Ohio, backers of the
bill argue that it is necessary to
protect the voting rights of citizens.
Opponents assail the bill as an
invasion of the right of States to
regulate their own elections. They
deny the purpose of poll taxes is to
prevent large groups from voting.

Failure to Act on Bill
District employes were to receive
their regular pay checks today and
tomorrow—their second this fiscal
year—even though the compromise |
District appropriation bill was yet
to be enacted.
The payments are being made
under the interim act signed July
3 which authorized specific agencies
to incur administrative and other ex
penses until after their regular ap
propriations bills can become law.
District Auditor A. R. Pilkerton
said that while the uncertainty of
the situation had been a hardship
on all employes, the only persons
who had really suffered financially
had been needy persons.
“There has been no actual suffer
ing on the part of District employes,
but the uncertainty of it all has been
more than a hardship,” he said. “Be
cause we were unable to determine
just what kind of an operation we
vmilii have t.his Aval vpar—pvpn
though the year had already started
—It left many up In the air, of
course.”
Public assistance checks for fam
ilies on regular relief rolls will be
mailed out tomorrow from an emer
gency fund obtained from the Fed
eral security funds, Mr. Pilkerton
said.
These checks will take care of the
minimum needs of persons who were
on the rolls before July 1, but those
who have found themselves in need
after that date or whose cases had
not been processed before that date
have been unable to obtain any
relief from the District Public As
sistance Division.
