Republican Charges !
Democrats Padded
Figures on Korea Aid
By Gould Lincoln
4 The recent attempt of the Dem
ocratic Congressional Committee
to^place the blame on Republicans
in Congress for the Red attack on
South Korea was met head-on to
day by Representative Hall of New
York, chairman of the Republican
Congressional Committee.
Mr. Hall said the statement,
Issued for the Democratic com
mittee by its chairman. Represen
tative Klrwan of Ohio, to all Dem
ocratic candidates for Congress,
was “replete with outright errors
of fact, padded figures and distor
tions of the actual record.”
The Hall statement was in the
form of a letter addressed to the
same Democratic candidates for
Congress to whom Mr. Kirwan had
sent a memorandum entitled
“Korea,” Background Information
on History of United States Aid
and Causes Leading to the Present
Conflict.”
The Republican chairman told
the Democratic candidates they
had been "duped and misled by
your Democratic Congressional
Committee” and that their safest
course in the coming campaign
was to ignore “this compendium
of errors, distortions and padded
figures.” He added that the Demo
cratic committee could take no
better course than to withdraw
the communication and apologize,
If not to the Republican members,
to the 63 Democratic representa
tives who had voted against the
$160 million economic aid bill for
South Korea, which was first de
feated in the House last year, and
later enacted.
Campaign Issue Shapes Up.
Mr. Hall made it clear that the
Korea war and the Administra
tion’s policies in the Far East be
fore the Red attack would be a
major issue in the Congressional
campaign. He described the Tru
man policies in the era as “tragic”
and responsible for the conflict.
Turning to the Democratic
memorandum, issued July 28. Mr.
Hall observed that this document
had said: “More than $310 mil
lion was provided in arms and
equipment for defense purposes”
for the South Korean republic.
"This." said Mr. Hall, “is a com
plete misstatement of fact and an
error as to figures.” According to
a report issued by the House For
eign Affairs Committee on July
11. military assistance to Korea
amounts to $57 million, not $310
million.
"Obviously. $252,747,000 of vital
military aid which the South Ko
reans so badly needed and which
the Democratic congressional
committee implies South Korea
received is missing.”
Charges Facts Were Withheld.
‘.Mr. Hall went on to say that
it is missing because it never ex
isted. and grew out of an error by
the congressional committee in
reading the report of the Foreign
Affairs Committee. The latter re
port, he said, in a breakdown of
aid provided South Korea, said
the sum, “does not include ap
proximately $253,000 of naval guns
and ammunition and aircraft
armament purchased by Korea at
no cost to the United States.”
The Democratic committee, said
Mr. Hall, had withheld from the
Democratic candidates vital facts.
The first, he said, was that the;
Republican position in Congress
for five years “has been total and
complete opposition to the policy
laid down by the Truman Ad-I
ministration, calling for the ap-l
peasement of the Soviet Union j
in Asia, which has resulted in the!
fall of Manchuria, China andj
North Korea, and which threatens
the entire continent as well asi
Japan and the Philippines.” This
policy, he said, dates from Yalta
in February 1945 to June 27, 1950,
when President Truman com
pletely reversed the American
position and personally decided
on armed intervention.
Lattimore Quoted.
"In opposing appeasement of
Communism in Asia, “Mr. Hall
added, “the Republicans protested
a policy which, in the words of
Owen Lcttimore who helped shape
it, provided not military assistance,
but economic assistance so that
China and Korea would be allowed
to fall without making it look as

Devoted Dog Stays With Soldier
In Battle. Retreat and Hospital
By- Ray Falk
North American Newipaper Alliance
SOMEWHERE IN KOREA, Aug.
8.—This is the story of an Amer
ican soldier and his dog.
The words belong to Barbara
Hussey of Berkeley, Calif., a Red
Cross girl at the hospital from
where I am wrriting.
“This boy had brought his Ger-j
man shepherd from the States!
as a pup. Nobody knows how he j
smuggled him to Korea from!
Japan. Yet the dog was found
i with him at the front. The dog
never left that man’s side, nor j
would the man leave his dog.
“For four days neither ate. The
man was too busy to eat. C ra
tions were opened for the dog,
but he wouldn't touch the food
unless his master also ate. Every
time the company settled down to
warm some rations, they were at
tacked. Most of the time they
were retreating.
"The man was taken td a j
casualty collecting station suffer
ing from battle fatigue. The dog
trotted along right behind the
litter. When the man was put on
a hospital train, his dog jumped
on, too, barking and refusing to
be separated from his master.
“That dog was in the medics’
way. But every time the dog was
out of sight, the man became
depressed. So they left the two
on the train. And thus, for the
first time, a dog was admitted to
an Army hospital. The medics
petted the dog, who then knew
he was in a friendly place and
started to relax. The animal fi
nally ate four plates of food. This
then made the patient relax, and
he ate the next day.
“The soldier was evacuated on
a Japanese ship soon after. The
last I saw of this OI, he was in
a row of patients sitting on straw
matting on the ship’s deck. As I
lit his cigarette, the dog looked
up gratefully and curled up be
side his master.”

if the United States had pushed
them.
"The administration’s determi
nation to abandon Asia to the
Communists reached such lengths
that on January 12. 1950, Secre
tary of State Acheson. in an ad
dress at the National Press Club,
declared that ‘our defensive per
imeter runs along the Aieutions to
Japan and the ngoes to the Ryu
kyus,’ thus announcing to the
world thus announcing we would
not interfere to halt Communist
aggression in China, Formosa or
Korea.”
Mr. Hall pointed out that none
of the economic aid voted for
South Korea in February had been
supplied that nation by the Ad
ministration when it was attacked
by the Reds four months later,
an dthat of $10.5 million made
available for military aid last Oc

Apartment Burglars Get
$400 in 12 Fairfax Units
Northern Virginia's elusive
apartment burglars have made a
new appearance—this time in 12
I units in the Belle View project on
jthe Mount Vernon highway, just
south of Alexandria.'
Detective Joe Howard of Fair
fax County police said the rob

The technique — doors jimmied
with a tool like a screw driver—
was similar to that last month
when about 40 units in Arlington

Mr. Howard thought more than
12 units may have been entered
last night and is checking those

Veterans and Employe Groups
Fight Personnel Decentralizing
By Joseph Young
Veterans and Federal employe groups have registered strong
opposition before the Senate Civil Service Committee to the House
approved bill that would decentralize personnel activities to the
individual Federal departments and agencies.
The measure passed the House without any difficulty a few
weeks back, but it has suddenly1'
run into strong opposition in the
Senate committee.
Civil Service Commission and
Budget Bureau
officials in
indorsed the
measure, which
is a somewhat
modified version
of the original
Hoover Com
mission propos
als along this
line.
But such vet
erans’ groups as
the American
Legion and ths
Disabled Amer
ican Veterans Y#un‘
flatly opposed the bill. Also ob
jecting to the bill was the Na-j
tional Federation of Federal Em-|
ployes. And it’s expected that
the AFL Government Employes
Council and the American Fed
eration of Government Employes
will oppose the bill when their
representatives testify today.
Luther Steward, president of
the NFFE, testified that, unless
necessary safeguards were given
to the Civil Service Commission
to enforce the proposed regula
tions, the result would be “truly
catastrophic.”
Mr. Steward said the House
approved measure would have the
effect of “opening the door and
practically inviting the use of
these devices for making appoint
ments based upon favoritism, po
litical or otherwise, rather than
upon demonstrated qualification.”
The House-approved bill would
give agencies the right to do their
own examining and hiring of em
ployes, but the Civil Service Com
mission would have the power to
determine the type of jobs over
which authority should be given.
Also, the commission would have
the power to crack down on of
fending agencies which violate
basic civil service regulations.
However, Mr. Steward declared
that, in the past, agencies have
not taken the commission’s warn
ings and inspections “very seri
ously.” And he indicated the agen
cies would not be too likely to toe
the mark with the decentralizationj
powers that would be given them.
The American Legion opposed!
the bill on the ground it would
destroy veterans’ preference and
“encourage the return of the pat
ronage and spoils system.” Herbert
Jacobi, an American Legion offi
cial, declared the bill would ac
complish neither economy nor
efficiency, “but would, in fact, re
sult in increased costs, decreased
efficiency, and a return to the
spoils system.”
BLANKETING IN—That forth-!
coming White House order blank
eting into permanent status Fed
eral non-status employes, won't
be issued for several weeks at
least.
There are many legal and tech
nical aspects of the order that
must be clarified before it can
be Issued.

LAW—President Truman has
signed into law the bill authorizing
the withholding from Federal em
ployes salaries’ of the amounts
they may owe to the Government.
This involves mostly employes who

Fire Damages Store
In Downtown Easton
ly th« Associated Prase
EASTON. Md.. Aug. 8.—Fire did
heavy damage to one of Easton’s
largest buildings today and threat
ened for a time to spread through
the block.
The building was that of the
Nevius Hardware Store at the
comer of Washington and Golds
boro streets.
No estimate of the damage was
made immediately. The rear of
the building, two stories high, was
destroyed. The top two floors at
the front of the frame structure,
where it is three stories high, were
burned out.
The blaze apparently started in
a 12-foot areaway which runs
back from Goldsboro street be
tween the rear of the hardware
store and the new Crystal Clean
ers.
Fire departments at St. Mich
aels, Cambridge, Cordova and
Preston answered a call for help.
Easton’s aerial fire tower, an
unusual piece of equipment for a
small city volunteer department,
seemed to turn the tide when it
started squirting a heavy stream
of water into the upper part of
the building.
The fire, which started about
10 a.m. was about out by 11:15
