Revolutions Reported
Stirring U. S. Talks
With Latin Regimes
ly th« Associated Press
BUENOS AIRES, Dec. 21.—The
United States is worried about re
cent Latin American revolutions
and is consulting with key govern
ments, diplomatic sources said to-'
day.
Talks have been started by the
United States Embassy both here
and in other capitals.
The new policy established last
April at the Bogota conference of
granting almost automatic recogni
tion to any government whether
established by force or through reg
ular election Is seen as source of
the difficulty.
In essence, the Bogota declara
tion says American governments do
not necessarily give approval to the
methods used by new governments
in attaining power.
Before Bogota, the United States
frequently refused to recognize im
mediately a government that came
to power through revolution.
Immediate Recognition Favored.
Most Latin American Foreign
Ministries usually believed it wiser
to grant immediate recognition.
Proponents of the Bogota doctrine
held that the United States lost
contact with neighboring nations
by a policy of aloofness.
Informed sources said the State
Department has not changed its
mind about the wisdom of granting
quick recognition to revolutionary
governments. However, the fall of
the governments of Peru and Vene
zuela to military juntas, reports of
anti-government plots in Chile and
Argentina, and disturbances in Cen
tral America are causing concern.
The State Department is reported
trying to find some new method of
expressing its disapproval, or at least
exerting moral pressure against revo
lutionary dictatorshipa in the hem
isphere.
Arrival here today of the first
United States Army ground force
training mission ever sent to Argen
tina is looked on as a step to tighten
Western Hemisphere security.
The mission arrived aboard the
liner Uruguay.
Welcomed by Argentinians.
Officers of the Argentine Armv
welcomed Col. J. B. Medaris, Lt. Col.
Louis Hightower and Maj. Richard
Grondona. Two more officers and
six noncommissioned officers are
due to arrive at a later date.
The officers were contracted by
the Peron government as instruc
tors for the Argentine Army under
a recent agreement signed by the
two governments in Washington.
The arrival of the United States
advisers is a further sign of the
postwar rapprochement of the
armed forces of the two countries.
Already here are a three-memdbr
North American naval advisory
board and a two-man aviation mis
sion.
The only other foreign power with
instructors here is Great Britain,
which has a number of jet pilot
experts assigned to the Air Force.
Patricia Styles' Death
Is Ruled Suicide
By th« Associated Press
LOS ANGELES. Dec. 21—Pretty
Patricia Styles killed laerself, a
coroner s jury has ruled, upsetting
her father's hope that there would j
be some death finding other than
suicide.
The nine-man jury said after yes
terday's inquest that “we believe the;
death of Patricia Styles to have re- j
suited from a gunshot wound by a 1
.32-caliber revolver held in her own
hands with suicidal intent."
Miss Styles, 25, blond actress!
daughter of Radio Producer Hal'
Styles, died in a flurry of shooting |
December 13 on a North Hollywood
street. Even as she fell fatally!
wounded, she shot her former suitor,;
Nate Sugarman, 44, investment bro- ;
ker, twice. He is recovering from
leg and head wounds.
Mr. Styles testified that Mr.
Sugarman, a friend of Miss Styles
for four years, but who recently
became engaged to another woman,
twice in 1947 threatened his daugh
ter's life.
However, the distraught father,
who had told reporters he didn’t
believe his daughter killed herself,
failed to produce witnesses or evi
dence indicating her death wasn’t
a suicide.
Miss Marion Hughes, a school bus
driver, testified she saw Miss Styles
and Mr. Sugarman struggle In his
car and saw Miss Styles point the
gun “as if in her mouth" as one
shot was fired.
Dr. Frederick Newbarr, autopsy
surgeon, said Miss Styles was killed
by a shot fired into her mouth.
Coast Guard Still Hunting
Ship After Mysterious SOS
•y th» Auociatsd Pr#i»
MIAMI, Fla., Dec. 21.—The Coast
Guard cutter Mocoma and a sea-1
plane continued to search waters off
Cape San Antonio, Cuba, today after
a mysterious distress call reported
a vessel sinking in the area.
The Coast Guard said it was in
vestigating the circumstances of the
call for help and was continuing
the search because “we want to de
termine definitely if human life is
in peril.”
The original distress call iden-1
tiffed the vessel as the Honduran
freighter San Luis and said the crewj
was taking to lifeboats. A check
later revealed the San Luis had;
been sold to Nicaraguan interests
and her name changed. She was lo
cated at Gibbs Shipyard, Jackson
ville.
j The Coast Guard refused to label
the SOS a hoax.

Europe's War Brides Wide-Eyed
At Pre-Christmas Landing Here
No Longer 'Cold Outside, Cold Inside/
Women and Children Drop Fatigue at Airport
By Charles J. Yarbrough
What is the American Christmas
season to a stranger in a strange
I land?
For a score or more war brides.!
11 of them with tiny children atj
: National Airport this morning, it,
was eye-brimming security, bright;
sunshine on the blanket of a peace- j
ful land ... a new home.
It was a Christmas carol hum
ming through an otherwise busi
nesslike immigration office ... a
sparkling and full soap container
in the women's restroom ... it was
light and warmth . . . silk stock
ings and wonderment . . . .a fairy
land of toys.
It was also a well-padded but
nonetheless merry Santa Claus,!
roving merrily up to the wide-eyed
little strangers, handing out cello-:
phane-wrapped stick candv that
wasn't brought in by the air lift.
Plane Detoured Here.
The words are those of pretty,
29-year-old Marie Therese Mac
Intyre, Bavarian wife of Sergt.
Giles MacIntyre of New York, but
they carried the gay, chattering
echo of each war bride, fiancee and
child.
The planeload, which also carried
the husbands of many, was detoured
to Washington late last night be
cause of foul weather in New York.
The passengers were lodged in vari
ous Washington hotels overnight by
TWA. The big DC-4 took off again
at 11 a.m. today for New York.
The war bride contingent de
toured to Washington last night is
among the last which will get into
the United States before the De-;
cember 28 expiration for admission
of aliens under the War Brides Act
of 1945.
TWA has announced it is flying
at least 15 special planes from
Europe to take care of the last
minute rush. Many others are
'coming by regular flights; many
more by ship.
“Many more won’t be able to get
, here," Mrs. MacIntyre said. “For
them I could cry."
Babies Forget to Cry.
At the airport the sun-sparkling
splendor of new surroundings erased
all signs of fatigue. Mothers you
knew had slept but few hours since
the plane left Munich were gay.
Through jthe hour's wait at the air
port this morning there wasn’t a
single baby whimper.
For some, even New York will be
only the half-way point.
Two families, both fathers of
which are Hawaiian, are headed for
Honolulu. “We hope to be there
for Christmas,” beamed Sergt.
Thomas B. Lau.
One family was bound for Ports
mouth, V a . — M Sergt. Thomas
: Stultz, jr.; Mrs. Stultz and their
two children, Liselotte and Marilyn.
Another was headed for Easton, Pa ;
Frackville, Pa.: New York, Texas
City and Boston.
Washington's sparkling panorama
of night lights was the first “over
whelming” sight for Mrs. MacIn
tyre. “What little electricty we had

[ over there we had to be careful
with,” she said.
Yule Spirit in Full Force.
“But the Christmas spirit in
America hit me full force when we
walked into the immigration office
last night. They were playing
"Silent Night.” Then I saw a happy
woman who looked as though she
might be going to have her baby
any minute.
"She was a beautiful woman and
I could almost read in her eyes the
happiness of it all. . I'm here, I'm
here. I don't care if I have by baby
right here in this room. I’m here
at last.’ ”
Mrs. MacIntyre bubbled gaily on.
“Imagine a brand-new 1948 taxi.
We rode in one. My husband can
sing Bavarian songs and even the
taxi driver joined in the singing on
the way to the airport.
Cold Outside, Cold Inside.
“Here a woman can be a woman.
Over there it was cold outside and
cold inside. We had to wear our
old wool stockings. We had to worry
whether we would bathe with the,
water or wash clothes.
“I made an American friend 10
minutes after we arrived. I had to
ask her how to work the soap gad
get in the oh-so-clean rest room.
"The American fathers amaze me.
Some of those aboard our plane
marched from Munich to Washing
ton—carrying the babies up and
down the aisle. I can t understand
a man wrapping a diaper around a
baby and holding the bottle for the
baby. They’re so charming.”

Laundryman, 71, Fined $50
In Case Involving 3 Girls
A 71-year-old Chinese laundry
man yesterday received suspended
one-year sentences on charges of
assault and of contributing to the

O’Neil.
Assistant State’s Attorney Hervey
G. Machen, jr., tbld the court Moy
does not speak English.
The girls involved all are less
than 16 years of age, the court
was told. Moy was accused of as
saulting one of them and of con
tributing to the delinquency of all
three. Later, the girls tried to
’shake dowm” Moy for money,
threatening to report him to police,
Mr. Machen said.

License and Egress Rules
For Housing Attacked
Repeal of District licensing and
egress regulations governing housing
was urged last night at a meeting
sponsored by the Columbia Im
provement Association In the Fourth
Presbyterian Church.
The meeting of approximately 100
persons adopted a resolution charg
ing ‘‘the license and egress regula
tions governing housing facilities
lately adopted by the District of
Columbia are unreasonable, unnec
essary, unconstitutional and invalid,1
are a burden and nuisance to home,
owners, »nd should be repealed.” ]
A committee will be appointed to
present the resolution to the Com
missioners and to the District
committees in the new Congress,
Mrs. Margaret H. Worrell, president
of the association, said.
Discussion revealed objections to
the new rules, which go into effect
January 1, concerned license fees
for rooming houses, the classifica
tions of tenements and restrictions
on transoms and latticed screen
doors leading into apartment house
corridors.
Mrs. Worrell said the latticed
screen doors gave women protection
by enabling them to scrutinize vis
itors without opening their doors.
Ives Opposes Changes
Urged by G. 0. P. in
Taft-Hartley Law
Senator Ives, Republican, of New
York, was on record today as op
posed to the changes his fellow Re
publicans are recommending in the
Taft-Hartley Act, declaring that a
report suggesting the amendments
is an ‘‘obviously partisan” document.
At the same time, Senator Ives,
a leading figure on the Senate
Labor Committee, told a news con
ference he is opposed to repeal of
the Taft-Hartley Act and its re
placement by the Old Wagner Act
without any change.
The changes to which the Senator
referred are being recommended by
the Senate-House ‘‘watchdog” com
mittee. The chairman, Senator
Ball, Republican, of Minnesota, told
reporters that about nine changes
in the law were being suggested, and
he described six of them as “fairly
important.” Senator Ball was de
feated for re-election.
Calls Report Partisan.
Among the seven Republicans vot
ing for the plan were Senator Taft
of Ohio and Representative Hartley
of New Jersey, co-authors of the
act. But Senator Ives split sharply
with the other committee members.
He told a news conference yester
day:
"I am not going along with the
report, partly because it is obvious
ly a partisan report and partly be
cause I don't agree with some of
the things in it.
“I feel very definitely that indus
trial and labor relations should not
be involved in partisan controversy.”
The New Yorker said, however,
that he favors one committee pro
posal—that the Taft-Hartley pro
vision requiring top labor officials
to take non-Communist oaths be
broadened to include management
representatives.
Senator Ives originally opposed
the non-Communist provision. But
he said he backs it now because “it
has helped labor organizations to
clean up Communist control.”
j Other Changes to Be Urged.
As for the other side of the in
dustrial fence, he said:
"Some management, if not under
Communist control, at least is doing
or trying to do a lot of business with
Russia. Not every management is
above suspicion.”
In addition to the non-Commu
nist section, it was learned that the
Senate-House committee also voted
to recommend these changes:
1. Elimination of a provision re
quiring an election to authorize a
union shop. Under a union shop,
a worker must join a union within
30 days after he is hired. The com
mittee's report says the union shop
has been authorized in 93 per cent
of elections held.
2. Exclusion from the NLRB’s
jurisdiction of "local businesses
whose operations only remotely af
fect Interstate commerce.”
3. Clarification of the right of the
NLRB to require unions, in the
case of mass and coercive picketing,
to reimburse workers who have been
denied access to their jobs.
OneRoundaboul Route
Open to Bethlehm
By the Associated Press
JERUSALEM, Dec., 21.—A round
about route has been arranged to
enable Christian* to make the1
traditional Christma* Eve pilgrim-!
age from Jerusalem to Bethlehem,
the birthplace of Christ.
A United Nations communique,
last night said Jews and Arabs seek- ;
ing a means of permitting the
pilgrimage had agreed to open op
i posing lines between Old and New
'Jerusalem for 24 hours,
i By this means, Christian* in the
' New City could cross into the Old
City and proceed to Bethlehem
along an Arab Legion military road
for 10 miles via Bethany.
The traditional shorter route
direct south to Bethlehem will not
be open, apparently due to objec
! tions by the Egyptian Army. U. N.
officials are pressing for use of this
route, however, and hope to get a
(reply today.
Almost every foot of the original
| route is under the guns of Arabs
' and Jewish artillery placed on sur
; rounding hills. The opposing armies,!
quiet in an uneaay truce, are easily
; visible from the Church of the
! Nativity. Visitors to Bethlehem will
be searched for security reasons.
The number of pilgrims, sometimes
as high as 10,000 will be much
smaller this year.

Somoza Denies Role
In Costa Rica Revolt
By th« AnociaUd Pr*u
MANAGUA, Nicaragua, Dec. 21.—
War Minister Anastasio Somoza says
he told investigators Nicaragua was
"not involved in the invasion of
Costa Rica.”
Gen. Somoza, Nicaragua's “strong!
man,” said he met for about two!
hours yesterday with the commis
sion from the organization of the
American States looking into Costa
Rican charges that she was invaded
by a force from Nicaragua with the
support of Gen. Somoza.
The commission arrived here yes
terday from Costa Rica. Shortly
afterward Gen. Somoza reported two
Costa Rican planes had machine
gunned a Nicaraguan Army barracks
at Dos Mojones on the border. Dos
Mojones is 10 miles north of La
Cruz, Costa Rica, still held by the
invaders.
The commission hopes to end its
work here today and leave for Wash
