Ends Aid Communist Strength Waning Because of Our Help, He Says By Joseph A. Fox Stor Staff Correspondent COLUMBIA, Mo.. June 9 — President Truman declared today that Communist strength is waning as a result of American aid to the free nations, but he warned that it would be “disas trous” to cut off this assistance. Speaking to a rain-drenched au dience of 12,000 at graduation ex Text of Truman's Foreign Policy Address at Missouri University Commencement. Page A-4 ercises at the University of Mis souri, where he received an honorary degree of LL. D.—and Phi Beta Kappa membership—the President sketched the vast aid programs this Nation is carrying on, particularly through the Mar shall Plan, which he said had pro duced "remarkable” results. He added: “As a result, there has been a great revival of faith in freedom and, hope for the future among the Western European countries. The numbers and the influence of Communists within their borders have been steadily receding. In the last two years, the Communists have received progressively fewer votes in every election held in the Marshall Plan countries.” Background for Speech. Indirectly, Mr. Truman contin ued, countries outside of Europe also have benefltted by this Amer ican aid. The President was speaking against a background of pending legislation that would allot $3, 121,450,000 for foreign assistance In the next year, including $2, 850,000,000 for the Marshall Plan. While he did not mention the opposition this projected spending has raised, he pointedly warned what retrenchment would mean. “The result,” he amplified, “would be a sudden drop in liv ing standards, weakened defenses and a greater opportunity for the j Communists to move in. Must Build Sound Economy. “That must not happen—it would be disastrous for the Euro peans and for us, too. Instead,] we must keep on working to build the sound economic conditions without which there can be no security or progress for free men.” The President, after donning eap and gown, to head the tra ditional academic procession, walked into Memorial Stadium under lowering skies. The largest class in the 110-year history of the university. 1,788 students, waited to receive diplomas. Flanking the President were Missouri's Governor, Forest Smith and the president of the univer sity, Dr. Frederick A. Middlebush. The exercises had hardly started before the rain came. Mr. Tru man, however, was in a covered stand. Has Platform Appearance. The President came to Colum bia by train from St. Louis, this morning, and left after lunch for the return trip. En route to St. Louis, where he rejoins his old World War I outfit in the 35th Division reunion, Mr. Truman scheduled a platform appearance at Mexico, Mo. He is traveling through this part of the State for the first time since he came to the White House. While- bespeaking the value of the Marshall Plan, the President indicated clearly that it is pro posed to wind up this form of European aid in 1952, as sched uled. In this connection, he spoke of the efforts being made to work out a satisfactory solution for the “dollar gap” that is in prospect (See TRUMAN, Page A-7.)

President Acts as Peacemaker Between Sailor and Taxi Driver Startled Navy Man Forgets Argument Over Fare on Seeing Who Tapped His Shoulder By a Staff Correspondent of The Star COLUMBIA, Mo., June 9 —Pres ident Truman acted as a peace maker while taking his morning walk in St. Louis today—to the I utter confusion of a sailor and a ! taxi driver who were arguing over a fare. Accompanied by a Secret Service Man, the President was strolling through a downtown street near his hotel when he caflie on the belligerents. Stepping up to the beribboned sailor, who wore four battle stars and ribbons for two citations, the President tapped him on the shoulder, then pointing to the decorations, said: "Where did you get those?” The sailor drew up with a start, then recognized the questioner and came stiffly to attention as he gave the information. The driver stood by speechless. The argument was forgotten. Then with a grin, Mr. Truman went on. He told reporters about it on the train ride to Columbia. Bradley Sees Force Adequate to Prevent Disastrous Attack Aim Is to Slow Aggressor And Give U. S. Time to Mobilize, He Explains By John A. Giles Gen. Bradley has told Congress that this country’s might will not be sufficient to fight a major war by July, 1951, but that it is on the, road toward ’’the necessary forces to prevent a disastrous attack.” The disclosure today of the testimony of the Joint Chiefs of Separate Red Peace With last Germany Predicted by Allies.

There were predictions that the extension of the Draft Act might have tough sledding. The Senate Armed Services Committee yesterday voted a three-year ex tension including power for the President to order inductions at any time, plus a racial segrega tion amendment squarely opposed to administration policy. A House passed version would not allow inductions without congressional; action. It makes no mention of ; the racial policy. 2. The Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services Committees ordered some strings attached to President Truman's powers to re arm friendly nations under the new $1,222,000,000 foreign arms aid bill. Sees Ultimate Victory. Gen. Bradley, testifying in sup port of the $13 billion defense! budget for the fiscal year begin ning July 1, said the aim was to built up forces which could “strike; a retaliatory blow that will be; strong enough to slow down the aggressor while we mobilize. "Beyond that point we must rely on the tremendous power of our industrial potential, our reserve forces, our military education sys tem—in fftct, what we term our mobilization base—ultimately to win a war if it is thrust upon us That is the risk we take." The general said that he be lieved that the present United States’ forces, plus the mobiliza tion base and the forces and po tential of friendly powers would be sufficient to win a war in the end. If Russia goes to war, her forces probably will move in the Far East as well as in Europe, Gen. Bradley said under questioning by Senator Knowland, Republican, of Cali fornia. He added that since it became known last September that the Russians had "solved the atomic bomb," he has been more con iSee DEFENSE, Page A-4.)

Jim Ferrier and Bulla Lead Open With 140s; Sam Snead Has I4S Pre-Tourney Favorite Hurts Cause With 75 On His Second Round BULLETIN ' ARDMORE, Pa. (JP).—Sam Snead, pretournament favorite, virtually blew himself out of the National Open golf cham pionship today with a scram bling five-over-par 75 that gave him a halfway total of 148. He was 8 strokes behind Johnny Bulla as^this point. Jim Fer rier, the transplanted Austral ian *ho played with Snead, shot a one-under-par 69 to tie Bulla at 146. By Merrell Whittlesey Star Staff Correspondent ARDMORE, Pa„ June 9.—Big Jim Ferrier, seldom a major tour nament winner but always danger ous. moved up among the leaders in the second round of the Na tional Open golf championship today by playing the first 13 holes at the Merion Golf Club in three under par. Ferrier, who was one over par with 71 yesterday, was two under after 30 holes. At this point, he was seven strokes under Sammy Snead, the pre-tournament fa vorite who was playing in the same threesome. The par-shattering started early as Johnny Bulla played the back nine in 31 for a four-under-par 66, the seventh round under 70 to date. Bulla had-74 on the first round so his 66 made him the temporary < leader with 140, only two strokes over the National Open record for 36 holes. Ferrier could top him with par on the last five holes. Bulla’s playing partner. Skee Riegel, slipped on the last five holes and finished with 70 for 143 at the halfway mark. Frank Stranahan also had 70 for 149 and probably will qualify. * Mackey Is Late Starter. Lee Mackey, jr„ the unemployed Birmingham pro whose 64 yester day made Open history, and A1 Brosch, whose 67 was the second lowest score of the opening round, both were among today’s late starters. The weather today was a dupli cation of yesterday—hot and sunny with a slight breeze, not enough to bother the golf shots. The first-day gallery of 7,000 had trampled the rough to the point that stray shots were not penal ized too severely. The greens appeared slicker and one of the pros said that by tomorrow it would be like putting on a freshly ironed silk shirt. Snead, a 73 shooter the first day, drew practically all of the early morning gallery, and the • See GOLF, Page A-2.) 2d-Round Scores In National Open By the Associated Press ARDMORE, Pa..

They included: 1. A new and bitter blast by Senator McCarthy, Republican, of Wisconsin against Secretary of State Acheson. He said Mr. Ache son “should be removed from the high command of our foreign pol icy at once.” 2. Senator Capehart, Republi can, of Indiana, demanded a new Senate inquiry into the Justice Department's handling of the 1945 Amerasia magazine case involving the alleged theft of secret Gov ernment documents. 3.

There were reports that Su preme Court Justice Clark might be called to testify in the current Senate inquiry on the puzzling angle of what high Government official sought to delay prosecu tion of the case.

B*29 Shot Self Down In Gunnery Practice fty the Associated Press LONDON, June 9—A United States B-29 bomber which fell in flames into the North Sea Wednes day with a loss of at least three lives shot itself down during gun nery practice, headquarters of the 3d Air Division said today. Bullets from the plane’s 50-cali bre machineguns struck the right outboard engine during a firing run on a gunnery range off the Norfolk coast, a spokesman said, setting the plane on fire. Eleven crewmen were ordered to abandon the burning plane at low altitude. Four were rescued, three were recovered dead, and a search is continuing for the other four. The Air Force spokesman said ! failure of normal safety devices with which the big plane was equipped permitted the gunfire from its own turret to strike the outboard engine. Normally automatic controls cut the fire of the B-29's machines should they be turned toward any part of th* aircraft. Capt. Henry J. Walsh of Alton, 111., commander of the lost bomb er and a survivor, told how shells from one of the B-29 turrets tore | into the right outboard engine i cowling. Fire followed and Capt.

The group recommended that the Attorney General and his anti trust attorneys take these actions: 1. Seek “injunctive relief" against futures contracts now used for speculative trading in coffee on the New York Coffee and Sugar | Exchange unless these contracts ; are promptly revised. 2. Bring a “civil suit under the anti-trust laws” unless coffee stocks held in this country by Colombian and other foreign coffee interests are immediately disposed of in channels of trade. 3. “That the Attorney General of the United States investigate the details of the purchase of cof fee by Mr. George V.

Doctors To Practice in 'Border' Areas The Virginia Board of Medical Examiners will begin issuing "borderline" certificates permit ting District physicians to attend patients in that State after Jyly 1, it was announced today. Health Officer Daniel L. Seckin ger, secretary-treasurer of the District Commission Licensure, said he was informed of this by Dr. K. D. Graves, secretary-treas urer of the Virginia board. The District commission has been withholding action on grant ing borderline permits to Virginia doctors pending action of the Vir ginia board. A decision is ex pected when the commission meets at 2 p.m. Monday in the Muni cipal Center. The commission last September canceled all borderline certificates for Virginia physicians, in view of a Virginia law requirng Wash ington physicians practicing in that State to pay a $50 fee. Former Health Officer George C. Ruhland had fought the law for many years, insisting that Vir ginia medical authorities should grant Washington physicians the privileges given Virginia physi cians who attended patients here. Until September, Virginia phy sicians were allowed to practice in the District through the certifi cates at a cost of $1. A similar arrangement stiU exists with near by Maryland physicians. The Virginia General Assembly recently acted to amend the $50 fee law to permit the border-line, i registration. Juvenile Court Study by U. S. Experts Asked Committee Suggests To Judge Cockriil She Request Board The Juvenile Court Advisory Committee today recommended a study Of the Juvenile Court by Federal experts as the only way to restore public confidence in tlje controversy-ridden court. The committee of 16 laymen specifically proposed to Judge Edith H. Cockrill that she ask the Children's bureau of the Social Security Administration, the ad ministrative office of the United States Courts and the Justice De partment each to appoint a com petent person to a study panel. This group, the advisory com mittee told the judge, should ba asked ‘ to study carefully the ex isting policies and administrative practices of the. court and in due course to report its findings to you and through you to the com munity." "The committee was strongly of the opinion." its chairman, O. Howland Shaw, declared in a letter to the judge, "that only by such a move on your part could the confidence of the community in the court be restored and it ts unnecessary to point out that without that confidence the court cannot sene the community with anything approaching maximum efficiency." Does Not Pass on Differences. Mr. Shaw said the committee noted "with a great deal of regret and concern that public confi dence in the court has been seri ously impaired." The committee, he said, tried to be objective in considering the serious situation confronting the community and the court because of the resignations of Miss Vir ginia Clary, director of social work, and Miss Clare Fagrie, chief probation officer, and the state ments made in connection with those resignations. "Without undertaking to pasa upon the merits of the differences between yourself and Miss Clary ; and Miss Fagrie," Mr. Shaw wrote I the judge, “the committee wish?* to record, predicated upon the personal knowledge of its mem bers. its recognition and appre ciation of the years of devoted and efficient service rendered to the court and to the community by these two members of the staff." A key point in the controversy swirling around Juvenile Court has been allegations that Judge Cockrill showed a “hostile" atti tude in the court and sent to the National Training School for Boya some youths who the court proba tion officers thought could be bef^ ter rehabilitated in their own homes on probation. Judge Cockrill yesterday made public her figures on commit ments. The Advisory Committee was meeting at the time and Mr. Shaw indicated it had not seen her figures.
