Burgman, 53, who emerged from the ranks of the AEF after World War I to be come a doctor of philosophy and ii trusted State Department em ploye, is in District Jail today awaiting sentence as a traitor to his country. He was convicted of 13 overt acts of treason involving propa ganda broadcasts he made for the Nazis by a jury of five women and seven men in District Court yesterday. The jury, which had listened to five weeks of testimony, deliberated 4 hours and 45 min utes and took only three ballots before reaching its final verdict Burgman, slumped in a wheel chair with his eyes closed and not a muscle moving, gave no indication that he heard the ver dict convicting him of the highest crime in the Federal code. Heart Attack Claimed. He suffered a heart attack at the District Jail over the week end and was under the influence of strong sedatives when he was brought into court yesterday morning, according to Chief De fense Counsel James J. Laughlin. As a result of the jury’s ver dict, Burgman now faces a sen tence ranging from a maximum of death to a minimum of five years’ imprisonment and a $10,000 fine. The prosecution at no time during the long trial suggested that It would ask for the maxi mum penalty. Judge Alexander HoltzofT is ex pected to sentence the convicted traitor in about two weeks, after allowing the defense time to move for a new trial, file an appeal and take other legal steps. Judge Commends Laughlin. Judge Holtzoff commended Mr. Laughlin for his spirited defense of Burgman. “I cannot imagine any one who could have done more for the de fendant than you have done,” he declared. The judge also commended Vic tor Woerheide and Dorothy Fillius, special assistants to the Attorney General, for their “able presenta tion” of the Government’s case. Chief Prosecutor William A. Pais ley was not in court, having been dispatched to San Francisco to prosecute the Government’s case against West Coast Labor Leader Harry Bridges. Homer R. Baker, 45, of 1725 Highwood place 6JE., a physicist at the Naval Research Laboratory, who was elected foreman of the jury, said the vote stood 10 to 2 for conviction on the first ballot. Jury Asks Instruction. The case went to the jury at 12:15 pm., and at 2:40 pm. the jurors filed back into court to ask further Instruction on the law covering two. major pptnts in Burgman’s defense—that he made the broadcasts under duress be cause he feafed the Gestgpo would kill him if Jfe Refused and that he was insane in 1942 when the treasonable broadcasts were made. After receiving the judge’s in structions the jurors retired and voted 11 to 1 for conviction. They reteumed again at 4:45 p.m. to ask Judge Holtzoff for further in structions on the legal definition of -Insanity. "One of the jurors wants to know,” said Mr. Baker, “if hate would be a compelling force to cause a man to commit a crime.” Judge Holtzoff said it would have to be an insane hatred which developed into an irresist ible and uncontrollable force to come within the legal definition. The jurors retired, and 15 min utes later sent word that they had reached a verdict. Burgman's German wife and his son, Thomas, 28, were seated In the back of the courtroom when the verdict was announced. They displayed no emotion other than the anguished looks on their faces while the jurors were polled as to each of the 13 counts in the in dictment.

Pennsy, Reading Ask Commuter Increase By the Associated Press PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 16.—The Pennsylvania and Reading Rail roads announced today they are petitioning Federal and State au thorities for fare increases on commuter trains. The request for commutation fare boosts followed closely on an order by the Interstate Commerce Commission granting Eastern rail roads authority to raise passengei fares except for commuters by 12'/2 per cent. Spokesmen for the two rail roads, both with headquarters in Philadelphia, said other Eastern roads also are asking for increases In commutation fares. The Pennsy said it asked the ICC and State Public Utility Com missions for new tariffs that would raise commutation fares an aver age of 22 per cent effective De cember 16. 'Pennsy officials said the new level of commutation fares, which is already in effect on some lines in Northern New Jersey, is pend ing on all other Pennsylvania Railroad lines serving New York suburbs. They said tariffs are being filed covering a similar level of fares in the Philadelphia, Pitts burgh and Cleveland commutation areas. “The new fares will not in themselves be enough to make commutation service pay its own way,” a railroad spokesman said, “but will help reduce the grow ing deficits by narrowing the gap between income and outgo. The need for some increase in income for all commuter lines is impera tive if the service is to be prop erly maintained.” Woman Who Plotted Death Of Husband Rejoins Him By tht Associated Press BREMERTON, Wash., Nov. 16. —It was “just like coining home from a vacation” for Mrs. Wilford Piatt today.

Nov. 16— As Communist armies drove on Chungking today. Nationalist China’s two Presidents, Chiang Kai-shek and Li Tsung-jen, ap parently were at loggerheads. “Retired” President Chiang, who6e headquarters are on For mosa Island, off the China coast. Is in Chungking at the invitation of Li, the acting President. But Monday, when Chiang arrived here, Li took off on an inspection tour. Chiang urged Li to come back at once to discuss strategy. So far Li has not answered Chiang's message. Political quarters here express belief Li is in effect saying to Chiang: “If you want to reas sume the presidency, go ahead. If you want to co-operate with me in the fight against the Reds then listen to my views.” Differ on Various Questions. Chiang and Li differ on various important questions. Among them are strategy, command of the army, reformation of the govern ment, political and military ap pointments and use of the dwindling Nationalist treasury. In brief Li wants bolder strategy against the Reds, a calculated risk in one big battle instead oi the present policy of continual retreat. He would like the army command unified under his long time friend, Gen. Pai Chung-hsi. He wants the government re formed by weeding out elements he considers corrupt or incompe tent. He wants political and mil itary appointments made on merit and as much money as possible used on feeding and equipping a Nationalist army for a decisive battle. Li is known to be bitter over the loss of Canton. Chiang Kai-shek wanted to fight the Communists immedi ately around Canton instead of at its distant approaches in Northern Kwangtung. Li seemed to have won his point but. when the test came, the Na tionalists in Northern Kwang tung—under a Chiang man, Liu An-chi—faded away fast. Escaped Envelopment. This exposed Pai’s right flank and only by quick work was he able to pull into Kwangsi from Hunan and avoid having his armies enveloped and wiped out. While these developments were shaping up, Li tried to get Pai named chief of staff. But Chiang would have none of that. Some here think Li might re main away from Chungking as long as Chiang is here. Others believe he will come here soon, possibly after intermediaries have laid the groundwork for a settle ment of differences. The Defense Ministry claimed tonight that Nationalist counter attacks had halted the Commu nist advance on Chungking from Chienchiang, 130 miles to the east. Fighting was reported near Li chuan, provisional capital of Hupeh, 155 miles east northeast of Chungking. The Defense Ministry also dis closed a new Red thrust into Kweichow Province from Hunan Providence. The Reds, it said, were striking toward Liping, 140" miles east of Kweiyang, fallen provincial capital. This probably is the beginning of a drive aimed at cutting the Kweichow-Kwangsi highway which runs from Kweiyang to Kweilin, base of Nationalist Com mander Pai. The Reds were pressing toward Tsunyi, 130 miles south of Chung king, on a highway between this refugee capital and Kweiyang.

Poland, Nov, 16.— President Boleslaw Bierut has dis closed the arrest of spies, sabo teurs and terrorists in a drive to wipe out an “entire underground army” in Communist-led Poland. The report on widespread op position to the Red government was made in a speech last week to the Central Committee of the ruling Communist Party and pub lished in detail yesterday in the nation’s press. Observers believed the unprec edented revelations indicate a big series of treason trials soon. Bierut told the committee the number of persons engaged in espionage, sabotage, conspiracy, terror and all similar activities is greater in Poland than in any other country. He described the underground army as specialists in subversive activities “directed against the people’s regime.” Poland in Throes of Purge. With these declarations and the ousting of three former important members of the Communist Party’s Central Committee it ap peared Poland was in the throes of an all-out purge. Bierut said “substantial numbers” had been arrested. Bierut lashed out most vehe mently against former Minister of Construction, Gen. Marian Spy chalski—one of the ousted com mittee members. There was se rious speculation among Western observers that he may become the figurehead in a treason trial The charges made by the Presi dent and enlarged on in the party’s resolution concluding a three-day meeting depicted Gen. Spychalski as a “nationalist devia tionist” similar to former Hun garian Foreign Minister Laszlo Rajk, who was hanged in Buda pest on charges of plotting with Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia. Expelled from the party hier archy with Gen. Spychalski were former Vice Premier Wladislaw Gomulka and Vice Minister of Justice Zenon Kliszko. Bierut associated Gen. Spychal ski with former Supply Minister Wlowzimierz Lechowicz, arrested a year ago as a spy suspect. He said also that the former construction minister co-operated with Go mulka in appointing spies in the former Ministry of Recovered Ter ritories which Gomulka headed. Ministry Dissolved. That ministry was dissolved last year after turning over to other government agencies the job of administering lands taken over by Poland from Germany. Specifically Bierut accused the two of appointing Josef Dubiel to the post of vice minister Qf recov ered territories. He said that Du biel, right-hand man of Gomulka, i on was found to be a “traitor during the period of German oc cupation.” Dubiel disappeared from publio view when the ministry was dis solved, and recently is rumored to have been arrested. Bierut declared that “both Ger man and Anglo-Saxon allies” were supporting the "treacherous, crim inal and fratricidal subversive ac tivities of the reactionary ele ments” which have been going on inside the country. He also charged the church hi erarchy in the country with using religious feelings and papal au thority in fighting against the “anti-imperialist movements” of the regime.

I Open Boy, 9, Tells Harrowing Tale, But Baby Sitter Gets Sympathy By the A»»ociat«d Prill BERKELEY, Calif., Nov, 16.— Nine-year-old Eric Weill told his mother a ghastly tale of what “the baby sitter and her father did to me.” His bedsheet was smeared with blood. One of his teeth was gone. Mrs. Mercedes Weill naturally demanded police action. Patroman Kenneth Dunham in vestigated and repotred: The sitter, Donna Giancoli, 16, took the boy home to her parents after Eric locked her out of the house, threw her schoolbooks out of an upstairs window, turned off the lights with the master switch, kicked the sitter in the shins and “in general acted like a brat.” Charles Giancoli, the sitter’s father, finally threated the young ster with a cold shower. That did no good, so he washed out the boy’s mouth with soap. Confronted with this testimony, Eric admitted all. The tooth had been loose and he himself had pulled it out. “I am of the opinion,” opined Officer Dunham, “that the boy was not mistreated in any way.j If any one was mistreated, itj was the baby sitter and her father.” Hot UE Battle Marked By New Court Tests And Appeals to NLRB By tht Associated Press PITTSBURGH, Nov. 16.—The battle for the funds and member ship of the United Electrical Workers’ Union, recently tossed out of the CIO, grew hotter and hotter today. The struggle was pointed up by new court tests and by two direct appeals to the National Labor Re lations Board. One petition, filed by labor’s newest problem child, the CIO International Union of Electrical Workers, called for collective bar gaining elections at all major electrical manufacturing firms. It was a direct challenge to the left-wing forces of the UE, who have refused to admit the right of any local, by no matter how large a membership vote, to secede from the parent group. They claim this would be a violation of the UE constitution. Many Vote for Secession. Right wingers by the thousands, in a dozen States, have voted for secession. In most cases they have instituted court action to seize local funds or are defending simi lar suits brought by left wingers. The other appeal to the NLRB came from Westinghouse Electric Corp., which has about 50,000 UE or ex-UE workers in its plants. Westinghouse asked NLRB to de cide with whom it shall deal—the independent UE or the new CIO IUE. The petitions filed by the right wing union would cover nearly 200,000 workers or about half of the pre-secession UE membership. The Labor Board will have to decide, in answer to both petitions, whether UE’s present contracts, which expire next April, are a bar to elections. If not, then the board must rule whether elections j should be made company-wide or limited to persons working in a single plant or in a single city. GE and GM Steer Clear. The other two major employers of electrical production workers— General Electric, with 125,000, and General Motors, 30,000—have steered clear of the bargaining election issue. General Electric said it will continue to deal with UE until ordered by the NLRB to do otherwise. General Motors refused to comment. International Harvester, how ever, has asked NLRB to clarify the status of the Farm Equipment Council of UE and the bargaining rights of FE locals. Dues col lections are being impounded by the company pending a decision. Bargaining on wage and security provisions currently in progress will remain open until the situa tion is clarified. FE claims to represent 30,000 harvester work ers in 11 plants. Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Corp. has asked NLRB to deter mine the bargaining agency at its plant in Norwood, Ohio, and its Boston factory. The firm said it was prompted by a demand of the new CIO-IUE that the com pany withdraw UE recognition. ^Manlon •.. makes marvels IN THE HOME — conjures that air of richness and mel lowness that only the golden browns, glorious greens, saddle tans and robust reds of luxurious leather can give to den, library or recreation room — club cbairs, wingbacks, love seats and longer “loafers.” • •. works wonders IN THE OFFICE— captures those characteristics of dis tinction that spell out the secrets of superior success—satisfying sequences of rugs, drapes, lamps, desks, tables and other essentials in traditional, func tional or modem motif.

Mother of 3 Children With Polio Contracts Disease Herself The mother of three Silver Spring children stricken with in fantile paralysis during the last three weeks contracted the disease herself yesterday. Montgomery County Health Department officials said, how jever, that the mother, who is 30, suffered only a mild attack and is recovering. The family lives in the 200 block of Franklin avenue, near an open ditch which residents of the area claim is a breeder of polio. The health department said that, al though the mother was stricken about two weeks ago, the disease was not diagnosed as polio until last Friday and was reported to the department only yesterday. A spokesman for the Montgom ery County Health Department at Rockville said medical authorities never have established any con nection between stagnant water and polio. Sidney Wolfson, executive as sistant in the department, said transmission of the disease is as sumed to be by some form of per sonal contact, rather than by such factors as stagnant water. The Franklin avenue ditch was inspected, however, and was found not to present any serious health problem. Although the ditch contained only surface wa ter, he said, steps are being taken to fill it, as requested by residents. Mr. Wolfson said the names of polio victims are not made public, under a Metropolitan Area agree ment between representatives of the medical profession, health de partments and the press. He re fused, therefore, to identify the Silver Spring family in which the four cases have developed.
