Urge Small Firms to Give at Least $100 Community Chest campaigners think too many Washington busi ness firms have been getting by with a $5 to $20 annual contribu tion. This year, they want to get a minimum of $100. Chairman Aaron Goldman made this known at a kickoff rally for about 250 solicitors of his Business II (small business) unit at the Hotel Washington yester day. There are 18,000 small firms (with fewer than 15 employes) in the city, with an estimated 80,000 Chest Cancels Show; Campaign Running Ahead of Schedule Community Chest leaders have canceled the Red Feath er Show which had been scheduled at the National Guard Armory Tuesday night/ Campaign Chairman Frank J. Luchs said it was decided that “with Government and advance gifts anti business unit workers making calls two weeks ahead of schedule,” the show would be an “anti climax.” Originally the show « was intended to mark the opening of the fund drive. Refunds on tickets will be made at Chest headquarters, 1101 M street N.W. Less than 1,000 tickets had been sold when the cancellation was announced last night, officials said. employes. Yet only 6,500 gifts were recorded by the small busi ness unit last year, Mr. Goldman pointed out. “The Chest is a big boon to business economy,” he told the workers. “It means a once-a year-gift covering 100 different agencies. Can Afford $100 Gifts. “There are many, many, many businesses that could well afford to give $100 to the Chest. Even that is only $1 per agency,” he continued. “I hope this year’s giving will be a far cry from the $5, $10 and $20 gifts we’ve been receiving from many firms.” About 1,200 solicitors are ex pected to start their canvassing for the Business II unit next Monday. Officially, they will seek a quota of $242,000, but Chairman Goldman has called for 150 per cent of the goal. This year the unit has about 800 more solicitors than it had for last year’s cam paign. William E. Leahy, District Selective Service director and principal speaker, urged com munity support for the drive "to care for those who have not been so fortunate.” People who are hungry, he warned, will cause a country’s government tp he “un dermined and destroyed.” Provides "Stimulation.” "Our obligation is to see to it that those who need are cared for out of our bounty,” he said. Drive Chairman Frank J. Luchs aaid Business II’s early organiza tion is providing “stimulation” for the rest of the campaign. Nathan Naddeo, 14, an Eastern High* School student who lives at 208 O street S.W., described the benefits of piano lessons, sports and crafts activities at Barney Neighborhood House, one of the Red Feather agencies. Meanwhile, the Army Depart ment reported yesterday it had reached 59 per cent of its $135, 000 Chest quota. Maj. Gen. Floyd L.

Frankfurter Pays Tribute To John Dewey's Work By the Associated Press NEW YORK, Oct. 21.—Dr. John Dewey's life work in American philosophy and education was praised last night by speakers hor*oring his 90th birthday. Nearly 1,500 persons attended the party, which was complete to a three-layer birthday cake. Among those present were Dr. Frank D. Fackenthal, former acting president of Columbia Uni versity; Walter Reuther, president of the CIO-United Auto Workers, and Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter. Justice Frankfurter paid tribute to Dr. Dewey’s "profound under standing of the governing forces of a democratic society.” "Not the least of his insights is his realization that civil liberties draw only limited strength from legal guarantees,” Justice Frank furter said. “Constant preoccupation by our people with the constitutionality of legislative or executive action, rather than to its wisdom, tends to preoccupation with false value," he said.

REpublic 6212 Convict Returns to Hard Labor After Seizure of Prison Radio ly th« Associated Press P ARCHMAN, Miss., Oct. 21.—A Mississippi convict who kept up radio communication with the outside world for four years was back in a work camp today. Three radio transmitters which he used In promoting a scheme to get a parole were dismantled and stored In the prison safe. And the convict, 28-year-old Frank Moody, who was serving 50 years for armed robbery and two prison escapes, lost his trusty privileges. Warden Marvin Wiggins of Marchman Prison said that here after Moody would not be allowed to tinker with radio. Moody’s clandestine operation of the transmitters came to light after two amateur radio opera tors, one in Arkansas and the other in Tennessee, reported the unlicensed broadcasts. The Federal Communications Commission traced the source to a 100-mile area. Field crews pin pointed the transmissions. Joe McKinney, regional mana ger of the FCC, said Moody read ily admitted he communicated with outsiders in an effort to get them to plead with the Governor for a suspension of his sentence. The office of Gov. Fielding L. Wright said Moody had a petition for clemency on file, but there was no indication whether the seizure of the transmitters would have any bearing on his plea. Mr. Wiggins said Moody’s prison record, except for the latest reve lation, was excellent since his recapture after his second escape six years ago.
