Once George Bernard Shaw, in an effort to discourage Mr. Woolf, said j he would charge his regular price of i #3,750 an hour for posing. Mr. Woolf replied that was his own fee for drawing. Mr. Shaw laughed and gave in. The incident started Mr. Woolf on his portrait interview ca reer.

Chambers (Continued From First Page.) j included any copies of the micro j film material. Mr. Mundt declared the evidence; , "is so shocking that I do not feelj justified in delaying action a dayj longer than required in reopening> hearings.” Mr. Mundt said the microfilm j jin the committee's possession con-j ! tained copies of "documents of tre- 1 mendous importance, which were j removed from the offices of the1 ! state Ddpai ment and turned over to Chambers for the purpose of [transmittal to Russian Communist [ agents.” His statement was made before j Mr, Stripling revealed Navy docu-i | ments also were reproduced in the j ’ microfilms. Mr. Hiss, notY head of the Car-: i negie Endowment for International j Peace, issued a statement in New j York, saying: j "During the course of examination bv my counsel of Mr. Chambers in the libel action which I have brought against him in Baltimore, Mr. Chambers produced certain docu i ments which I consider of such im : portance that I directed my attor neys to place them at once before ; the Department of Justice. "This has been done, and I have [offered my full co-operation to the I Department of Justice and to the 1 grand jury in the further investiga ' tion of this matter.” Inquiry May Be Reopened. Attorney General Clark said yes ; terday he would recommend re- j \ opening of the Hiss-Chambers dis- j pute if a special grand jury in New j York asked hkn to do so. The grand ijury was organized in New York in June of 1947 to investigate Com munist activity and alleged espion age in this country. Its only action has been the indictment of a dozen top members of the Communist Party on a charge of conspiring to overthrow the Government. The microfilm copies of documents j which Mr. Mundt said provide “deft- j nite proof" of a vast espionage ring! came to light after the House com mittee served a subpoena on Mr. Chambers. Mr. Stripling said Mr.j Chambers had not volunteered that! he had the microfilms. But after the subpoena was served,1 Mr. Stripling said, Mr. Chambers took two committee agents to his farm near Westminster, Md., ai)d showed them a hollowed-out pump-; kin. Mr. Chambers lifted the top | ! off the pumpkin ahd fished out the i microfilms, Mr. Stripling said. Mr. Stripling said he b<*eved the pumpkin was a "temporary hiding j place" and that the microfilm had not been there very long. More Documents Obtained. Mr. Stripling said the subpoena j was served on Mr. Chambers Thurs iday He added that more docu I ments were obtained from Mr. Chambers yesterday, but would not j discuss their significance. Nor would he say where the committee got the tip that Mr. Chambers had the microfilms. None of the documents copied on the films dated beyond 1938, Mr. i Stripling said. He told reporters the documents apparently were slipped ! out of the State Department, copied ; on 'the film, and then returned. By making enlarged reproductions | from the films, he said, the com- j ! mittee has built up a stack of docu-! ! mentS 3 or 4 feet high. He said i ■they include such items as: A diagram of a technical instru-j ;ment. with operating instructions. A 1938 telegram to the Secretary j of 'State from "Bullitt” in Paris, concerning a conversation with a former Chinese official in Moscow about the chances of Russia siding I in with China to fight Japan. Wire Labeled Strictly Confidential. 1 William C. Bullitt was Ambassa doi to Fiance in 1938. Sumner1 Welles is a former Undersecretary of State. Mr. Welles told a reporter he couldn't even guess now at the nature* of a note he might have sent the German Ambassador 11 years ago. Nor. he said, could he say how important it might have been. He also said he had no idea who could have dipped the document out of the State Department. The Bullitt telegram was labeled "strictly confidential for the Secre tary.’’ A notation said it "must be closely paraphrased before being [communicated to any one.” Mr. Stripling said the microfilms i would have made it easy to break an American code. I At the time they got into Mr. Chambers' hands, Mr. Mundt said, Mr. Chambers was a Washington contact for the Communist under ground in America. Mr. Chambers testified at the committee's spy hearings last sum mer that he was in the under ground for several years before breaking with the Reds in 1938. He didn't volunteer any informa tion then about the microfilms, and there was no explanation of his fail ure to produce them. Mr. Mundt's statement last night was issued from his home at Madi son, S. Dak., through the commit tee offices here. He said he will come to Washington as soon as he can. Since he becomes a Senator Jan uary 3, hearings in which he could take part would have to be run off before then. Mr. Stripling said several other people besides Mr. Chambers already have been subpoenaed for a re sumption of hearings. He would not supply names. Official Denies Nicaraguan Planes Fired on Boafs By th* Asiociat.d Pr.j. MANAGUA, Nicaragua. Dec. 4.— War Minister Anastasio Somoza says planes reported to have fired: on three United States fishing boats; Thursday could not have been Nicaraguan. Gen. Somoza said last night that all Nicaraguan planes are well marked and can be identified easily. Harold Cary, executive manager of the American Tunaboat Associa tion. said yesterday in San Diego, Calif., that he had received a tele gram that three San Diego-based tuna clippers were fired on by an "unidentified plane” off the Nicara guan coast at 12:15 p.m. Green wich Time (7:15 a.m. EST) Thurs day. Mr. Cary said, the incident was re ported to have occured 10 miles off shore, 70 miles southeast of Cor into. The telegram said the vesels; were not damaged. The Los Angeles Times quoted what it said was an unverified re port that the boats were fired on by planes identified as Nicaraguan. The story said the planes flew off after the vessels hoisted American flags. Gen. Dawes Is Recovering From Virus Infecfion By th. Auo<iat«d Pr..» CHICAGO, Dec. 4.—Gen. Charles Gates Dawes, 83, former Vice Presi dent of the United States, is recov ering in St. Luke's Hospital from a virus infection, described by physi cians as similar to influenza. Mr. Dawes, Vice President during the Coolidge administration and later Ambassador to Great Britain, entered the hospital Wednesday. Physicians said he was recovering rapidly but is expected to remain in the hsopital a week. Remarkable Progress By ERP Cited by Head Of 'Watch Dog' Group By J. A. O'Leory Western Europe is making “re markably good progress’ toward1 economic recovery under the Mar shall Plan, in the opinion of Sena tor Smith, Republican, of New Jersey, acting chairman of the congressional “watch dog’’ com mittee. The Senator also predicted the new Congress will get from the co operating nations an estimate of j next year’s needs "big enough to j take your breath away.” "It. will be up to us to say howl much of it should be undertaken," | he added. The acting chairman expressed | his views after the “watchdog"! Committee spent three hours late j yesterday going over the results to; date in a closed session with Paul; G. Hoffman, economic co-operation I administrator. Mr. Hoffman left immediately on! an around-the-wo^d flight to get j more information first-hand. Be fore departing he told a separate press conference this country "very j definitely" should embark on a stronger program of buying vitally: | needed defense materials abroad. I He also urged Congress to strength- j en parts of the Marshall Plan in tended to encourage American busi ness investments abroad. The $4,000,000,000 this Congress made available to start the ECA program is due to be used up by April 1, and Mr, Hoffman has in dicated he will recommend a $1, 250,000,000 deficiency fund to keep the program going until appropria tions are made for the new fiscal year commencing July 1. Other high lights of Senator Smith's press conference were: The “watchdog” committee has no request from Mme. Chiang Kai-shek for a hearing on China's current plea for more American aid, and expects none. Senator Smith point ed out that the committee’s juris diction is confine^ to supervising economic aid, and would have no control over the policy involved in doing anything more to aid China in the war against the Communists. Former Ambassador William C. Bullitt's current study of conditions in China was undertaken at the request of Senator Bridges. Republi-1 can. of New Hampshire, committee chairman, because there was not j time for the committee to meet be-: fore he left. Senator. Smith addedj that he was not criticizing the Bui- | litt mission, and thinks "it probably ; was wise.” Mr. Bullitt has not yet j made his report. Washington Alerted On Counterfeit Bills Christmas shoppers, storekeepers and others here were /.arned today j by the Treasury Department to be! on the lookout, for counterfeit $10; and $20 bills, which began circulat- j ing in New York and Chicago about | a month ago and have found their, wav in some numbers to Baltimore. Washington financial institutions! i are being put on notice by the j 'Secret Service to watch for the iml-! tation money. Officials here warned ! that in the rush of the Christmas, season, when people are busy andi i tired, efforts will be made to pass the counterfeits. The surest way to tell a bogus note is to lay one beside a genuine one and the difference will be ap parent. While the notes are con-! sidered pretty good imitations, they; are “not of genuine quality” iol I quote a Treasury official. Authorities consider this serious j business and warned there will be j Mots of losses” unless the public is! vigilant. * • For—they pointed out—“If you; accept one of these phonies—you're j stuck." Co-op Owners Upheld In Westmoreland Case The co-operative owners of the j Westmoreland Apartments today j had won the right to occupy apart ments they have bought but whose I ownership was questioned by 13; ! present tenants. Chief Judge George P. Barse of; Municipal Court settled the ques tion when he granted eviction suits filed by the co-operative to gain ! possession for its members’ own ! use as living quarters. In Judge Barse’s memorandum opinion on the case, he held the1 ! co-operative had been properly in corporated and had taken proper title to the 59-Unit building at 2122 ! California street N.W., and that the i membership were owners "within ! the meaning of the rent act.” I The defendants had argued last Tuesday that the co-operative members were not landlords' in the proper sense since they enjoyed no | use of the land itself. Judge Barse rejected a second argument that the co-operative was not legally organized under the 1940 act of Congress, since, the tenants argued, co-operative real estate ownership was not specifi cally provided for In the act. The chief judge ruled that the tenants had no power to raise this point, because only the Govern iment authorities granting co-opera | tive charters can question the valid ity of any given charter. Philadelphia Socialite Dies After Fall af Plantation • By th« Associated Press BLUFFTON, S. C., Dec. 4.—Wil liam Mosley Swain, 36, Bluffton plantation owner and Philadelphia socialite, died yesterday at the Ridgeland Hospital of injuries re ceived in a fall Thursday night at his home. Coroner Roger Pinckney said that Mr. Swain apparently fell down the stairway at his plantation home, Belfair. According to the coroner, who is investigating with Sheriff J. E.

Mr. Conley said that in self de fense he flailed the air with his cane he carries, landing several blows. Feltner, wearing head ban dages, argued that the blind man landed the first blow. New French Proposal On Ruhr Runs Counter To Brilish-U. S. Plans Ey th* Associated Press A new French program threatened today to snag carefully laid British American plans for boosting pro duction fh Germany's Ruhr in dustries. The French proposal, presented at the State Department yesterday, calls for "lasting” international supervision over German coal, iron and steel output. That seemed certain to clash head-on with the American view that the Germans will produce more if they have sole power to manage their own industries. The only safeguard proposed in the British American plan would be western control over distribution of Ruhr products. French Ambassador Henri Bon net, who submitted the French pro gram to Undersecretary of State Lovett in what he called a "very serious” note, criticized the Ameri can position sharply in speaking to reporters later. Calls Plan “Window Dressing.” Any idea that the rebirth of Ger man militarism can be prevented by merely controlling distribution of the Ruhr factories is "pure window dressing,” he said. • “We most certainly don’t think this is enough in view of what hap pened sffter the last war,” Ambassa dor Bonnet declared, adding: “I insisted very seriously and strongly on this point.” The program the Ambassador presented would set up an inter national Ruhr authority — minus Russia —which would have the 'right to: ! i. De-centralize German industry ! by breaking up the complicated Geft> man cartels and holding companies which .fed Hitler’s war machine. 2. Oust all "Nazis” from positions of importance in the Ruhr industries. 3. Control production and develop ment of these industries and guide investment of profits. Proposal Called Too Vague. Government officials indicated they had special objections to the ! third point. They called it too j vague and all-inclusive, since it ap parently would give the Western ; Allies a voice in managing the Ruhr industries even after occupation troops are withdrawn. They indicated they will continue to stand by the recently announced British-American decision to give the future German government the right to determine final ownership of the nation's industries. Representatives of France, Brit ain, the United States, Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg now are meeting in London to discuss what powers to give the international authority which would watch over the Ruhr during the remainder of the occurUttjon period. The French note proposes the policy to be followed after British, American and French troops are pulled out. "It is important to set a good foundation now for this interna tional authority," Bonnet told news men. "That is why we are letting you know what we think gbo'ut the future at this time." Nurse Awarded $290,000 from Loew's Over Film. ly the Associated Press ST. LOUIS. Dec. 4—A- Federal Court judge and jury attended a private showing of the film. "They Were Expendable,” and returned a $290,000 verdict in favor of Mrs. Beulah Green wait Walcher yesterday.

One man was reported killed and many injured. . Medical aid sped today to the island, the largest of the Islas Marias group. The group lies in the Pacific about 75 miles from the mainland and 130 miles south of Mazatlan. A coast guard boat carrying doc tors, nurses and medical supplle* left this Pacific port at midnight. A squadron of seven Army planes was ordered to fly there after dawn. There was little possibility that any of the 700 or so convicts got away, but air crews were instructed to be on the lookout for boats leav ing the island. The prisoners are lifers or long termers. Radio reports said the colony’* electric power plant, a shoe shop, a furniture factory, a theater and other buildings were demolished by a. three-second shock at 6:34 pjn. (7:34 p.m„ EST).
