New York Governor's
Race Will Be Made by Lynch and Dewey ■y Hm Associated Press ALBANY, N. Y„ Sept. 7.—Re publicans today nominated Thom as E. Dewey for a third terms as Governor of New York and Dem ocrats tapped Representative Wal ter A. Lynch to oppose him in the ’ November 7 election. Gov. Dewey, who only last Mon day reversed his decision to re tire, was nominated by acclama tion of shrieking delegates to the Republican State convention at Saratoga Springs. In a dramatic move, Gov. Dewey’s name had been placed In nomination by Lt. Gov. Joe R. Hanley, who last Saturday re linquished his hitherto unopposed claim on the gubernatorial can didacy in favor of Gov. Dewey. Dewey Nominates Hanley. Minutes before Gov. Dewey was nominated, he personally had placed in nomination Mr. Hanley’s name for GOP candidate for the Senate. Mr. Hanley, too, was nomi nated by tumultous acclamation. The 74-year-old Mr. Hanley will oppose the Democratic incumbent, ! 72-year-old Senator Herbert H. Lehman, slated for unanimous renomination today at the Dem ocratic State convention in Rochester. At the Rochester convention, Mr. Lynch won the Democratic nomination on the first roll call, defeating Federal Security Ad ministrator Oscar R. Ewing, whose name had been placed in nomi nation by a die-hard Albany County delegation led by Daniel P. O’Connell, county chairman. Heavy Backing for Lynch. Mr. Lynch, a New Deal-Fair Deal Congressman serving his sixth term in the House, had the back ing of the five county leaders of New York City and State Chair man Paul E. Fitzpatrick. Mr. Lynch’s nomination came amid an air of pessimism in some rank-and-file Democratic quar ters. Many delegates felt they should run a better known candi date than the 56-year-old Mr. Lynch against Gov. Dewey. Hanley Sees Draff Getting Ex-GIs, Men With Families By the Associated Press PITTSBURGH, Sept. 7.—The j chief recruiting officer for the Army and Air Force says World War H veterans and men with de pendents will have to be drafted if the armed forces go beyond the 3 million mark. Maj. Gen. Thomas J. Hanley. }r„ in an interview yesterday said the drafting of war veterans and men with dependents ‘‘probably will be left to the discretion of the Individual draft boards.” To make such moves possible, he added, the existing selective serv ice law would have to be changed. Gen. Hanley, who is chief of the Military Personnel Procurement Division, said he has been dis turbed by reports some industries are refusing to hire draft-eligible young men. “This is not fair to the boys,'’, lie safffT"Tf industry’drains that' man, he will make a better sol dier, and when he comes home he will be more useful to industry.” Part of Virginia Picket Law Voided by State High Court By tH« Associated Press STAUNTON, Va., Sept. 7.—The Virginia Supreme Court of Ap peals declared a section of the State's anti-picketing law invalid yesterday and dismissed the con viction of two Norfolk men who sought to pressure a theater into hiring a Negro manager. In an opinion by Justice A. C. Buchanan, the court threw out the provision of a 1946 act which prohibits persons who are not bona fide employes of a business from picketing it. The opinion was one of 18 the eourt handed down at its Staun ton term. The two men were not em ployes of the theater and it was conceded that the picketing did not interfere with the free use of the sidewalk by pedestrians. How ever, the back-and-forth move ment of the pickets did have some effect on people going in and out of the theater. French Seize 208 Foreign Reds In Drive to Balk Fifth Column By th« As»ociat«d Pr#*» PARIS, Sept. 7.—Sweeping down at dawn today, French police rounded up 208 foreign Commu nists, including some Russians. There were indications that the police had hoped to grab 300 sus pected spies and saboteurs but found many were absent from their hotels or residences. All of the suspects will be ex pelled within 48 hours, an Interior Ministry source said, specifying the drive was aimed at crippling fifth column activities by foreign Communists in France. Police sources said a Polish princess was among those being questioned, and that among those police had failed to find were a Yugoslav doctor and Enrique Lister, commander of the Red Lister Brigade in the Spanish civil war. Lister fled from Spain to Fiance in 1939 after the Span ish Loyalist collapse. In Southwestern France, where 30 Spanish Communists were taken, police said they had been offered the choice of being sent to Corsica “or to an Eastern country to which they seemed attached" (presumably Russia). “One remarked that most of them refused the second choice,” said a police communique. One-hundred persons were taken in Paris, including Czechs, Poles, Rumanians, Bulgarians and Yugo slavs, another 50-odd in the Northern France coal region; about 15 in the Metz area in East ern France. In Marseille 2,000 persons were questioned, including 400 foreigners, but only six were held. Last night’s raids were the first major application of the sweeping anti-sabotage law passed by the National Assembly last March. Justice Admits It Lacks Proof Of U. S. Red Ties With Moscow By Martin S. Hayden North American Newspaper Alliance President Truman has said it is true—and J. Edgar Hoover has j publicly testified to it—but to lawyers of the Justice Department there is no "proof” that American Communists are allied with any foreign government or political party. This was admitted today by a Justice Department spokesman. For reporters, the spokesman answered a question asked by Sen ator Ferguson, Republican, of Michigan: Why has the Justice Department failed to prosecute Communists for refusing to divulge organizational and financial se crets under the 10-year-old Voor his Act? Legal Technicality. The Department's answer is: “Although, of course, every one knows it to be true, it is techni cally impossible to prove that the American Communist Party is al lied with Moscow and internation al communism. The same legal technicality, the Justice spokesman admitted, ap plied to the McCarran Communist control bill, now being debated by the Senate; even if Congress passes it, any enforcement would be “dubious,” because of the con tinued legal inability to prove “what every one knows.” Senator Ferguson stumbled on what may become new Republi can “evidence” as to administra tion restraint in acting against Communists when he speculated as to why the White House ob jects to his and Senator McCar ran's idea of requiring registra tion of all Communist Party and Communist “front” members. Act of 1940 Recalled. “The Voorhis Act, passed by a Democratic Congress in 1940, al ready seems to require that the Communists reveal full details as to their organization and finan ces,” he noted and then added “and, incidentally, I wonder why that aeV-has never been enforced?” A reporter first checked the act, and then the Justice Department. The Voorhis Act, aimed in 1940 at “Fascist” organizations, re quires registration of any organi zation, “if its policies, or any of them, are determined by, or at the suggestion of, or in collab oration with, a foreign govern ment or political subdivision there of, or an agent, agency, or instrumentality of a foreign gov ernment, or a political party in a foreign country, or an interna tional political organization.” The Justice spokesman, a top lawyer who would direct any sucn prosecutions, said the Voorhis Act had never been used. “In the three-month interval between passage of the act and its effective date,” he recalled, “the American Communist Party an nounced its official disassociation from the Communist Interna tionale and Earl Browder speci fically stated the action was taken to avoid prosecution under the Voorhis Act.” No “Proof” of Reafflliation. Since then, he added, there had been no “proof” of any reaffllia tion between American Commu nists and Moscow. The reporter asked about state ments by FBI Director Hoover and President Truman, both of whom have publicly called American communism part of an interna tional conspiracy “Unquestionably they are right,” he admitted, “but we cannot go into court and prove our case by those simple statements.” The reporter asked about the identity of the American Commu nist and Moscow “party lines.” “The fact that American Com munists parrot what Moscow says is, of course, circumstantial evi dence,” was the answer, “but it is not enough proof to go to court.” Then came the matter of the pending McCarran bill, aimed at “Communist-controlled organiza tions,” which it identifies as "those substantially dominated or con trolled by the foreign government or political organization control ling the world Communist move ment.” “Same problem,” ruled the Jus tice lawyer. “We might know it to be true, but proving It would be another matter.” Question of Constitutionality. “There is also a big question,” he added, “whether the Voorhis Act is constitutional. It requires that organizations dedicated to forceful overthrow of the Govern ment register as to their full in tent and how they propose to do it. Enforcement of that would mean forcing people to reveal evi dence that would incriminate them.” Senator Ferguson exploded when the reporter told him the "official” answer to his question. “The courts of the country are supposed to determine the consti tutionally of law—not the Attor ney General,” he stated. “The ar gument used against the Voorhis Act could also be raised against a law requiring automobile li censes; I suppose the department would say that it is illegal to make a man register his ownership of an automobile because, if he had an accident, that might be used against him.” Senator Ferguson says he is “quite sure that an able prosecu tor can prove a connection be tween Moscow and American Com munists.” “If this administration cannot prove that,” he suggested, “they are going to have a devil of a time proving to the United Na tions that Joe Stalin had a part in the invasion of Korea.” Pakistan Names Commander KARACHI, Pakistan, Sept. 7 (>P1. —Maj.

A resolution to this effect has been introduced jointly by Senator Wherry of Nebraska, the Republican leader in the Senate, and Sena tor tienricKson oi wew jersey, - one of the top Republican mem bers of the Senate Civil Service Committee. Noting that the Defense Departm ent plans to hire 237,000 addi tional civilian employes. Senator Hen ri r i c k s on de clared most of these new workers could be obtained in transfers from agencies whose functions will Joseph Young, be curtailed “because they are non-essential or because they are not as essential as the Defense Department.” The resolution calls on the Budget Bureau to use the trans fer system as much as possible and to see to it that the total Federal employment next year isn’t any greater than it is now. The resolution was referred to the Senate Civil Service Commit tee. The Senate’s Democratic leadership is strongly opposed to it, and indications are the com mittee will turn thumbs down on the resolution. " “ “ “ NO DROP — A survey of the Government's so-called non-sen sitive agencies indicates that few of the employes in these bureaus will lose their jobs as a result of budget cuts. While some bureaus took a cut in funds, most of the money re ductions were small enough to permit absorption of the slashes without the necessity of firing employes. The big break for employes in these non-military agencies was Congress’ rejection of the Taber Thomas and Byrd-Bridges econ omy amendments, which would have resulted in sizable personnel cuts. The final version approved by Congress gives these agencies enough leeway to keep dismissals down to a minimum. * * * * N’FFE—Civil Service Commis sioner James Mitchell will ad dress the biennial convention of the National Federation of Fed eral Employes when it meets in Los Angeles next week.

While disclaiming the right to strike against the Government, the CIO group declared: “Federal em ploye unions must be given enough power to keep administrative heads in line.” In this way, the CIO group asserted^ employe groups “could police civil service rules and regulations more effi ciently and less expensively than a Government agency.” The CIO union declared the Civil Service Commission does not now have the authority to enforce personnel regulations or to punish agencies that violate these regu lations. * * * * LOYALTY—The Attorney Gen eral has added the Labor Youth League to his list of subversive organizations used in the Gov ernment’s loyalty program.

Lane Is Honor Guest At Timonium Fair By th« Associated Press TIMONIUM, Md., Sept. 7.—Gov. Lane paused in his campaign for renomination to become guest of honor today at the 69th annual Timonium State Fair. A special luncheon was arranged for the ‘‘Governor’s Day” program and a company from the Maryland Training School for Boys served as part of the welcome committee.

Also to be judged were Ayrshire, milking shorthorn, and Aberdeen Angus cattle, ponies and heavy draft horses. Most of the afternoon schedule was occupied by judging contests and demonstrations for 4-H Club members, who sponsored exhibits on dairy products, farm machinery and vegetables.

The storm, inching in the gen eral direction of Bermuda, had winds up to 150 miles per hour near the center and hurricane force winds (75 miles per hour or more) extended outward 100 miles in all directions. It was due to pass west of the island resort, but gales were fore cast there and the Weather Bureau said a slight change in direction would bring much, higher winds. ' The hurricane was moving northward at about 6 miles an hour, which would bring the cen ter opposite Bermuda tonight. The Gulf storm lost force as it whirled northeastward across Florida from the Tampa Bay area, where it caused widespread property damage along the beaches. It had moved offshore up the Florida Gulf coast since Sunday, halting near the fishing village of Cedar Key, 80 miles north of Tampa, to give that area a ter rific pounding. Then it made a hairpin turn to the Tampa area before losing force and swinging northeastward across the citrus belt. Moisture from the storm was expected to offset any losses to the State’s orange and grapefruit crop. The storm left three dead in Florida, all killed when they cams in contact with fallen electric wires. Baruch Urges President To Use Controls Quickly By the Associated Press BALTIMORE, Sept. 7.—Elder Statesman Bernard Baruch says President Truman should us# quickly the economic mobilization controls voted him last week by Congress. “Surely,” he declared, “we shall pay a terrible price if we continue to follow a ‘drift-as-usual’ pro gram.” Mr. Baruch’s comments were in a letter to the editor of the Eve ning Sun. The credit, priority, price and wage controls approved by Con gress are not nearly as drastic as those proposed by Mr. Baruch when he appeared before a con gressional committee July 27.
