Oen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg, chief of staff, issued the grounding order last night. A few hours before, the latest crash had killed five of a nine man crew aboard a Super Fortress which was taking off to help search for the 20 men aboard an other B-29 missing off Bermuda since midweek. Six accidents have occurred in the past 16 days, with a known death toll of 35 and with the 20 men aboard the lost B-29 still missing. 27 Lost Since August 26. - Available unofficial records show that since August 26, when 16 crewmen died after an engine caught fire in a takeoff from Hickam Field, Hawaii, 27 Super Fortresses have gone down with a death toll of 120. While the Air Force refused to aay at this time how many acci dents have occurred since the war or during the last year, it once estimated that during a given year it could expect about 60 B-29s to be wrecked in crashes. This estimate was given last year by officers testifying on the Air Force appropriation bill. In discussing the question of how many replacement aircraft would be needed, they said plan ning for the fiscal year was based on the probability that an aver age of 61 B-29s would be wrecked. Their reference was to loss of aircraft by all types of accidents, including ground accidents or crash landings which resulted in no casualties but made the air plane useless. Inspections to Be Made. Gen. Vandenberg’s order will have this effect: Any Super Fortress used by the Strategic Air Copunand or the 19th Bomb Group in the Far East —unless all of its four engines have been “modernized” — is j grounded until a detailed inspec- , tion can be made by technical ( experts. - The greater part of all B-29s , are used by either SAC or the l»th Group. A second part of the order grounds all B-29s which have been subjected to “maximum op erating stresses," but this part of the directive does not apply to SAC and 19th Group planes. That is because any B-29 used by those operating forces cus tomarily takes off heavily loaded, flies at high altitudes and high Speed and otherwise undergoes “maximum operating stresses.” Strict application of that order would have grounded the whole combat fleet of B-29s. Some B-29s Exempted. Therefore, the second part of the order apparently applied only to a relatively few B-29s used in rescue search or weather recon naissance missions. Gen. Van denberg specifically exempted ~ (See B-29s, Page A-2.)

Witnesses said the pilot seemed to be struggling to pull it up as it neared the ground. Gasoline flowed from the wreckage and spread flames along the street. The ship belonged to the Meteor Air Transport Co. and was coming from the East, company officials said. The impact of the crash carried the DC-3 ship into the center of the wreckage of the house, which was demolished. The debris and flames kept rescue crews from reaching the cabin.

Two New York Airports Ban Fighter Planes •y the Associated Prats NEW YORK, Nov. 19.—A “keep off” sign to fighter-type air craft has been posted at La Guardia Field and the New York International Airport. The ban, ordered yesterday by the Port of New York Authority, followed a series of Air Force plane accidents in the last two weeks. The Authority, which operates the two giant airfields, said the order closes the fields to all fighter planes, “regardless of ownership and regardless of whether or not they are modified or converted." The announcement, which came after the Civil Aeronautics Admin istration in Washington banned fighter-type craft from the Wash ington National Airport, said the order applied to such planes as the F-38, F-47, F-81, F8F and F9F, all fighters.

Giles Admiral Forrest P. Sherman to- j day flatly rejected Capt. John G. Crommelin’s request for a court martial and marked the case of] the Navy’s outspoken unification] critic as closed. Capt. Crommelin yesterday de manded that a reprimand which Admiral Sherman gave him No vember 7 be expunged from his record and that he be tried by court-martial for having released confidential Navy documents to the public. A spokesman for Admiral Sher man, Chief of Naval Operations, pointed out that the reprimand ing letter advised the captain that he was free to make a reply be fore it became a part of his offi cial personnel record. “That reply has been made and considered and no further action will be taken,” the spokesman de clared. Made Part of Record. Thus both the reprimand and the captain’s caustic reply of yes terday in which he renewed his attack on national defense poli cies, will become a part of Capt. Crommelin’s record and will come up for consideration when he is again considered for promotion. After Admiral Sherman made his announcement, Capt. Crom melin indicated that he was not yet through with his campaign to bring about a change in the Nation's defense setup. “L would just like to say that my personal welfare is completely unimportant and it is my fervent hope that the, Defense Establish ment will be further investigated by Congress. “And I hope that Congress will restore the system of checks and balances so necessary for the operation of our defense estab lishment." Not Detached From Duty Here. The captain said he could not say at this time when he would leave Washington for San Fran cisco, where he has been ordered as aviation officer of the Western Sea Frontier. He added that he had two weeks in which to report to the West Coast and that he had not yet been detached from duty in Admiral Sherman’s office in the Pentagon. Admiral Sherman appears to have been well covered by naval regulations in releasing the stiff reprimand which he handed Capt. Crommelin. An aide yesterday cited a restricted letter of last January 7 in which the then Sec retary of the Navy, John L. Sulli van, ruled that “a public repri mand may be issued by a fleet commander, by a force commander or by higher authority.” In his reply to the reprimand, Capt. Crommelin took a clout at a “small group of men” who, he said, have “com plete and full control" of the De fense Department and a “care fully prepared plan” to take over its civilian operations. He told reporters he was referring to Army and Air Force officers. “Their plan is very, very close to a scheme drawn up by Heinz Guderian, the last chief of staff of Hitleh In fact, it’s so close, this is it." Charges Shrewd Propaganda. He said in the letter that these men have used “shrewd propa ganda methods” and “sharp po litical maneuvers" to give an im pression that “a small powerful military group, whose decisions are sacroscant, is the only answer to inter-service disagreements.” He added that “the real truth” had been concealed from the pub lic and that therefore it was neces sary for the security of the coun try for him to release last October 3 a confidential letter in which Vice Admiral Gerald F. Bogan complained to Mr. Matthews that Navy morale was going to pieces. The admiral said the reason was that present defense policies give too much emphasis and funds to the Air Force and not enough to the Navy. Two members of Cohgress, Sen ator McCarthy, Republican, of Wisconsin, and Representative Sutton, Democrat, of Tennessee, have offered Capt. Crommelin any help they can give. That Includes legal advice should there be a court martial. Sepator McCarthy was a Marine captain in the war. Representa tive Sutton was a wounded, much decorated member of a Navy un derwater demolition outfit.

The Assembly also voted gown the Russian group in their mo tion to discontinue the special U. N. committee watching Greece's borders and the civil war that has raged across them. The arms embargo was directed at Albania and Bulgaria. The Assembly has only a kind of moral force with which to enforce the ban, but none of the countries in the Western ranks of nations are known to be sending arms to Albania and Bulgaria now.

Yugoslavia Backs Soviet. Yugoslavia, once dh the commit tee’s list, has been dropped from this accusation since Marshall Tito split with the Cominform more than a year ago. The U. N. committee has reported that Yugoslavia has ceased helping the Greek rebels. But Yugoslavia yesterday joined the Soviet bloc in opposing the resolution finally adopted. To most observers, this seemed to dash hopes that Marshall Tito’s government might patch up its differences with Greece. Yugo slav Delegate Dr. Alex Bebler ac cused the Athens government of engaging in terrorism, atrocities and brutality, especially in Mace donia. The Soviet proposal rejected by the Assembly, paragraph by para graph, called for withdrawal of all foreign troops from Greece, dis solution of the V.

They did this morning, though. . The Ministry of Supply promised to supply a steeplejack as soon as the frost dried off the tower.
