ecs of water, which meant that
l’/2 grains were administered.
But he said a blood test by |
Chief District Chemist Norman E.
Yongue failed to detect the drug
and that the chemist concluded
the drug either was not present,
or was present in a very small
quantity.
Dr. MacDonald said his office,
from the facts adduced through
the investigation, was ready to
close the case.
The police investigation dis
closed that Davis, in a violent,
noisy and excited state in his cell,
became more violent while being
removed, so that the sedative
might be given, Dr: MacDonald
aaid. He added that while the
drug was being administered in
travenously, the prisoner became
quiet and failed to respond to
artificial respiration and other
measures.
His findings had been confirmed
microscopically by Dr. Oscar B.
Hunter, a pathologist, the coroner
added.
Intensive Investigations.
After a preliminary investiga
tion and autopsy, the coroner’s
office had issued a temporary
certificate of natural death result
ing from acute congestive heart!
failure in the case.
Intensive investigations by
police and the Corrections De
partment already have been com
pleted, it was reported, but|
awaited results of the further
laboratory tests ordered by Dr.
Murphy.
The long delay in getting the
results, the deputy coroner said,
resulted from the large number
of tissue examinations ordered.
The tests were made both by the
coroners and private pathologists,!
Dr. Murphy said.
Key figure in the corrections de-1
partment investigation was Mr.
Kirkpatrick, who amended his
statement to police after first tell
ing them nothing about the towel
episode.
Action Considered.
Mr. Clemmer, corrections de
partment head, told a reporter
some time ago that some action
against Mr. Kirkpatrick is under
consideration, regardless of the
coroner's findings, because thcj
guard violated a jail, regulation in1
using the towel as a restraint. ,
The Commissioners ordered aj
more extensive report from Police
Chief Robert J. Barrett after read
ing Mr. Kirkpatrick’s account of
> the struggle which preceded Davis’ j
death.
The earlier police report quoted
guards as saying that Davis,
awaiting trial on housebreaking'1
charges, dropped dead whiie
guards were holding him and the
intern assigned to the jail was at
tempting to inject a sedative into
the vein of his right arm.

bers walked away from a four
engine airliner that piled up yes
terday at La Guardia Field when
its landing gear collapsed.
No one was injured. •

in and then skidded tor 200 yards
to a lopsided stop when the right
; wheel and strut buckled.
The fuselage, a wing tip and

A
Many Fenders Bent
In Britain as Petrol
Rationing Ends
>y tht Associated Press
LONDON, May 29.—British mo
torists, able to buy all the gaso
line they wanted for the first time
in 11 years, went out yesterday
and bent a lot of fenders.
Cars which hadn’t been out of
garages for years were scorching
the highways.
It wasn’t quite the crush that
police had expected, but at times
there were bumper - to - bumper
processions on the dozen main
roads leading from London. The
{loyal Automobile Association re
ceived many calls for aid, but in
dications were that there had
been few serious accidents.
“The quality of driving wasn't
quite up to standard,’’ said an
automobile association official.
“There were a good many bumps,
and on the Margate road espe
cially there were many break
downs. Some of these old cars
just couldn't take all this new

Wile Pushes Paralytic
6 Floors to Death
By fht Associated Preii
NEW YORK, May 29.—“Please
don't throw me out,” paralyzed
Fred Bornholdt pleaded as his 60
year-old wife balanced him on the
sill of their sixth-floor window.
“I have to do it,” she told him
—and dropped him to his death
on the courtyard below.
Police got her story after arrest
ing her Saturday night.
They asked why she did it. She
rambled vaguely, finally saying
“I’m a bad girl.” She was charged
with homicide and will go to Belle
vue Hospital for mental observa
tion after a hearing Wednesday.
Neighbors filled out the rest of
the story. Mr. Bornholdt, a 64
year-old waiter, was paralyzed by
a stroke last November. His wife,
Anna, a hotel chambermaid, slaved
away to keep things going. The
strain told and neighbors said she
talked of cats prowling the apart
ment ... of the devil dancing
outside the window.
Two weeks ago she told a neigh
bor she had taken Fred to the
window to drop him out—but that
her nerve failed.
But nobody paid any attention.
They said she always talked like
that.
Dolivet Denies He's Red
*.
Before Flying to Chile
By the Associated Press
NEW YORK, May 29. — Louis
Dolivet, editor of the magazine
United Nations World, not only
denied yesterday that he is a
Communist, but said he is enough
of an anti-Communist “to have
earned a long stay in Siberia.”
He made the statement at Idle
wild Airport. He later boarded a
plane for Chile where he will be
the guest of President Gabriel
Gonzales Videla, himself an anti
Communist.
Mr. Dolivet said “some congress
man” had “heard” he was a Com
munist. He apparently referred
to Representative Jenison, Re
publican, of Illinois, who said last
Thursday that the French-bom
editor h&d a record “replete with
Communist affiliations.”
Mr. Jenison accused the State
Department of “ominous silence”
on Mr. Dolivet’s application for
naturalization.
Armories in Capital
For Reserves Studied;
Bill Pending at Capitol
The need for additional armor
ies in Washington to house the
training facilities for the Army
Reserve and the Marine Corps
Reserve is being given restudy by
a special group of the National
Defense Reserve Facilities Board.
Structures are needed for these
two units and the board now
making a restudy is expected to
come up with a recommendation
as to whether one or separate
buildings will be provided for
them. The original survey of
armories facilities here, as well
as in the States, was made last
year.
However, a restudy was ordered
both in the light of pressing needs
for training facilities and the fact
that armory construction has been
reduced in cost from $16 a square
foot as of May, 1949, to $10 a
square foot this year. ,
The board conducting the local
survey, according to Col. Alva L.
Fenn of the Defense Civilian
Components Board, is composed
of Lt. Col. Thomas A. Brown,
Army; Comdr. Hugh H. Lewis,
Navy, and Maj. W. E. May, Air
Force.
There are said to be no facili
ties for accommodating the Army
Reserve and the Marines in the
National Guard Armory. Also
the Air Force Reserve is facing
problems because Bolling Field is
crowded. But the new board will
look into the facilities available
at Andrews Field, where the Na
tional Guard Air Force is based.
The whole restudy is tied up
with a bill pending in Congress
authorizing an expenditure of
$400 million for the construction
of armories throughout the coun
try. This is merely an authoriza
tion bill, and the money would
have to be provided over a period
of years in the defense appropria
tion bills.
The construction required here,
it is estimated, would cost about
$6 million dollars. The board is
expected to have its recommenda
tions ready in about four months.
Draper and Adler Have Year
To Decide on New Trial
t
By Associated Press
HARTFORD, Conn., May 29.—
It will be up to Entertainers Paul
Draper and Larry Adler to decide
if they want a new trial in their
inconclusive $200,000 libel suit
against Mrs. Hester McCullough.
The case, which ended with a
hung jury Saturday, will remain
on the court calendar for one
year, giving Mr. Draper and Mr.1
Adler the right to a new trial at1
will during that time.
But whether they will go into
court again to seek damages for
being called pro-Communist was
an open question today. Neither
they nor their lawyers hinted at
a decision. The basic fact of
court costs probably will have a
big effect on their choice. The
first trial was expensive, with each
side spending an estimated $40,000.
Mr. Draper is slated for another
court appearance on June 3—this
time for arraignment on a traf
fic charge. He was booked yester
day near Litchfield, Conn, on
charges of violating the rules of
the road and failunf to sign a
driver’s license.
State Policeman Frank Duren
said Mr. Draper tried to pass on
a curve.

Committee as being a Communist
front. Senator Graham earlier
had described his connection with
that organization in these words:
“During the period of my active
participation the overwhelming
number of members of the South
ern Conference for Human Wel
fare were to my knowledge anti
communists. There were several
isolationist stands of the confer
ence with which I disagreed.”
In the campaign he asserted:
“I have always opposed Com
munism and all totalitarian dic
tatorships.”
Senator Graham favored bet
terment of conditions for Negroes.
Some said he favored a manda
tory end to racial segregation.
But he denied that accusation in
his campaign and said he be
lieved such reform should be a
gradual process.
The diminutive educator also
had been associated with the Oak
Ridge Institute of Nuclear Studies,
identified with the atom bomb.
His political enemies argued that
he should not have access to its
secrets.

against Senator Graham.

end to the other, denouncing the
Graham philosophies.
Both he and Senator Graham

made many radio speeches and
distributed handbills. Many were
bitter and pulled no punches. -
The Graham camp hurled
charges that Mr. Smith until now
never had urged improvements for
the working man, had opposed the
State's minimum wage law, and
had grown rich on his corporation
law work. They said he was a
representative of big business.
Democrats spoke their answer
in record-breaking numbers. They
voted some 600,000 strong, well
ahead of the previous high of
516,000 set in 1936 when Clyde R.

Nationalists Charge
Soviet Sent 300,000
Troops to Red China
• y »N Amoco**<3 Nil
TAIPEI. Formosa, May 29 —
Nationalist China accused Russia
today of pouring 300.000 Soviet
troops into Red China.
There was no way of confirm
ing the accusation The National
ists said earlier that Russia and
Communist China had agreed that
400.000 Soviet citizens could set
tle in Manchuria.
The Defense Ministry said that
more than 150,000 Russian troops
are stationed In such key Man
churian cities as Dairen. Harbin.
Mukden and Changchun.
10.000 Reported in Shanghai.
The ministry said 10.000 to 20 -
000 Soviet troops are stationed
south of the Great Wall In Peiping.
Tientsin, Tsinan and other mam
cities. Ten thousand Soviet
troops wearing Chinese Commu
nist uniforms but carrying Rus
sian equipment arrived recently
in Shanghai, the ministry as
serted.
It said huge amounts of rice
were being requisitioned to feed
Russian troops. The quota for
Hankow alone was reported at
20.000 bags.
The Nationalists said they are
using the Ta-Chen Islands. 190
miles south of Shanghai, in an
effort to maintain their blockade
of that big port. The Nationalists
withdrew from their main Shang
hai blockade base, Chusan, earlier
this month.
Admit Isles Abandoned.
The Nationalists admitted yes
terday that they had abandoned
the Lapsapmei Islands near Hong
Kong.
(This was a backhanded
method of acknowledging with
drawal from the Wanshan or
Ladrone Islands, where they had
proclaimed a great victory over
Communist invasion forces only
two days earlier. Lapsapmei Is
the key island in the cluster oR
a dozen or so dots of land in
the Pearl River estuary which
generally are lumped together
as the Wanshans but some
times are classified as diRerent
groups.
(A British naval spokesman
in Hong Kong disclosed Satur
day that the Nationalists had
pulled out and had landed their
1,000-man garrison on little
Lingting Island. 10 miles south
of Hong Kong, as a temporary
haven before leaving for For
nosa.)
Nationalist naval headquarters
said the Lapsapmei Islands were
isolated as a result of Red landings
on the Wanshans May 25. It said
only small Nationalist guerrilla
units had been stationed in the
Wanshans.
Naval sources explained that
this meant there were no regulars
there, and the islands therefore
could not be abandoned in the
sense that Hainan and the Chusan
Islands were previously.
