Coroner’s JurytFails To Place Blame for Fatal Truck Accident The driver of a skidding laundry truck which crushed to death Har land Beck, 44, of 1321 Belmont street N.W., on August 28 was re leased today in the custody of his attorney after a coroner’s jury failed to reach a decision on his responsibility. Coroner A. Magruder MacDonald ordered the driver, Stanley Day, 30, of 1110 Baum street N.E., released pending further action by the United States attorney’s office. The Jury stayed out one hour yesterday afternoon before an nouncing it could reach no verdict. Mr. Beck was standing in front of a building at 3303 O street N.W. I inspecting it for painting when the I accident occurred. Police Sergt. ; Walter R. Ostrom testified that the truck skidded from the center of j the street, crashed into a parked I car, then jumped up on the side walk and pinned Mr. Beck against ! a railing in front of the building. At the time Day was charged with driving at an unreasonable speed and driving a car after suspension of his permit. He told the jury he was traveling slowly through heavy rain. As he applied the brakes the truck skidded on the streetcar tracks and- went out of control. Police produced no witnesses to the accident. Mrs. Isabel Worral, 3327 'O street N.W., testified she saw the * i Air Iriiols on ininrfnni ilict ; before the accident and that it' was going at the "usual rate of speed.” j In another inquest, the corner's ljury cleared Calvin H. Campbell, 16. of 4542 Wilson boulevard, Arlington, of responsibility in the traffic death of Vaughn Doggett, 36, colored, 916Vi Liberty street S.W. Mr. Doggett was | struck by an automobile driven by the youth at Maine avenue and I street S.W. on August 28. 'Columbia (Continued Prom First Page.I think a man who has been a pro fessional soldier should be in any political capacity.” He added that if a soldier served in a political capicity, "I do not think it is good for the Army and it is not good fol- the soldier.” Refusing to elaborate on his re ; marks relating to politics, Gen. j Eisenhower said. "I want nothing to do with partisan politics. The job at Columbia is big enough to chal lenge the capacity of any man.” He said the entire purpose of his i trip heer was "to get better ac quainted with Columbia and look | around the surrounding country for a place where my wife and I can finally settle down.” ^ "Fundamentally I am a farmer,” Gen. Eisenhower said, "and I want to find a place out of town where I can raise a few tomatoes and beans and get close to the soil.” On his three-day visit here Gen. Eisenhower will be the guest of Thomas J. Watson, president Of the International Business Machines Corp. ,Eisenhower (Continued From First Page.) president of the Kansas City Star, and friend of the Kansas-born gen eral. Mr. Roberts wrote that the 58-year-old general "is absolutely honest when he says * * * he doesn’t want to be President of the United States.” If for the first time in nisiory mere was an nonest arait from the people without conniving and intrigue, the general would accept,’’ Mr. Roberts added. Notwithstanding Gen. Eisen hower's declaration yesterday that he "deplores'’ the organization of clubs to work, for his nomination, j leaders announced .they will go ahead anyway. Moreover, the possibility of an Eisenhower nomination was cited by former Gov. Alf M. Landon, 1936 GOP presidential nominee. The former Kansas Governor, replying to a question by Newspaper Col umnist Raymond Moley, said that if Gen. Eisenhower runs for President it will not be for the Democratic nomination and that Kansas will support him if he runs. “I’m not aware of it," Gen. Eisen hower said when asked about the i Landon letteit "I met Gov. Landon once. What his ideas are I don't j know. I’ve told people that when I get through being a soldier there is something else I want to do. (This was taken as a reference to his forthcoming post as president of Columbia University.! I honestly don’t want t» do anything else.” Deplores Private Spending. As for “Draft Eisenhower” clubs, ! Gen. Eisenhower said he hopes “no one will be attracted into spending ? his hard-earned dollars or time on i this.” He added he never heard of the organizers, "although they may be fine people.” H. D.

The league has now grown to such proportions that, re gardless of our own convictions, it will go forward because it is too big to be stopped.” The league is encouraging forma tion of clubs throughout the coun try, Mr. Spalding said. He explained the work is being financed “out of our own wallets,” except for a, few dollars coming into the central head quarters here. Other officers of the league are Robert M. Haar, presi dent, and Maurice B. Mumford, ex ecutive vice president, both of Wash ington. Democrats Also Interested. Proposals for an Elsenhower draft were not. confined to a possible Republican nomination. Senator Sparkman, Democrat, of Alabama declared he "wholeheartedly con curs with a recent suggestion of Representative Smathers, Democrat, of Florida that a Truman-Eisen hower ticket be nominated by the Democrats in 1948. "The Republicans wouldn’t give Eisenhower the nomination unless they became deadlocked at their convention,” Seator Sparkman said. "And even then, if they turned to a , military man I think they’d pick Gen. Douglas MacArthur. Gen. Eisenhowever is a Democrat by na ture. We can give him the vice presidential nomination now and the presidential nomination four years later.” Landon Analyzes Chances. Former Gov. Landon, asked by Mr. Moley to evaluate Gen. Eisen howers political chances, listed these five points: 1. "If the general is a candidate i in 1948 his home State of Kansas will be for him." 2. “If the general is a candidate j it will be for the Republican, not : the Democratic, nomination.” 3. "Unless the general takes him self out of the picture by some i unequivocal statement, he will be | a factor at the Philadelphia con vention, whether an announced candidate or not." 4. Although he has never held political office. "No man could have risen as high as Gen. Eisenhower in the Army without three attributes which any successful President must have: (1> Leadership, i2> administrative ability, and (3) a •keen knowledge of politics." 5. "At the moment, the general is a long way from th% nomination. Much stands in his path. Delegates | to a political convention demand a great deal of information about a candidate: How does he stand on this issue, how on that issue? Are his sympathies to the left of cen ter, center, or to the right? * * * What he does in the next nine months will provide the answers. It is up to the general, no one else.” Raymond Potter Dies; Naturalist, Taxidermist By th* Associated Press NYACK. N. Y„ Sept. 11.—Ray mond B.

U. S. Move to Transfer Balkan Case Reported ly th« Associated Press LAKE SUCCESS, Sept. 11.—The United States was reliably reported today to have formally moved to have the Balkan question dropped from the Security Council agenda— a step necessary to permit the 55 national General Assembly to act on the problem. A spokesman for the American delegation said Herschel V. John son, deputy American delegate, had asked that the Balkan issue be put on the calendar of the Council’s next meeting so that the United States could propose the necessary action. * Under the U. N. Charter, the As sembly may discuss matters which are under active consideration in the Security Council but may not make recommendations. The As sembly will begin its session next Tuesday at Flushing Meadow Park in New York. No date for the next Council meeting has been set. The American spokesman said the United States was prepared to offer a resolution to meet the Charter re-j quirements. He said, however, that it was not yet sure whether the reso lution would provide that the Bal kan case be dropped outright. It might be possible, he said, merely to declare that the question was- no longer under active consideration. Railroads (Continued From First Page.' sion that date to expedite the procedure.

The full 11-member commission! then will sit next Thursday to hear Closing arguments of both sides. Regarding the 27 ^>er cent in crease, Mr. Aitchison told the at torneys for both sides: “It is obvious that the major (27 per cent) question will require hearings elsewhere than in Wash ington. It will be our intention, at appropriate times and places, to, provide one hearing in each of the j four major territories '—the East.! South, West, and Mountain Pacific areas. When shippers' counsel questioned the indicated time for cross-exam ining railroad witnesses on the 10 per cent increase, Mr. Aitchison commented: "We should all remem ber we are dealing here with a national problem which concerns 145.000,000 people. Otherwise we will be here until next Christmas.” Dutch Report Occupation Of Indonesian Town By tht Aisociotvd Pr«l BATAVIA, Java, Sept.

Mr. Brubaker emphasized that his union is not concerned with imput ing any conspiracy on the part of the industry to preserve scarcity.” He suggested that the committee at make a study of possible legis lative action, <2) a survey of export needs in the light of the Marshall plan for Europe's rehabilitation, and (3) if necessary, ask for a meeting of industry, labor and Government officials to be called by President Truman to "draw up a joint program for expansion." Industry spokesmen have con tended that the present capacity is sufficient to take care of foreseeable requirements. Mr. Brubaker argued that they based their estimates on an historical pattern which gives undue emphasis to the depression years of the '30s. If the industry does not expand. Mr. Brubaker suggested, the Govern ment might have to "build and lease the necessary facilities.” Judge Weiss Stops Attacker With Tackle •y th* Associated Prou PITTSBURGH*' Sept. 11 .—Judge Samuel A.
