MacArthur Schedule
Of Ride With Spellmai
Is Reported Changed
fty Associated Press
NEW YORK, April 28.—The
New York Times says protests by
Protestant groups and individuals
have resulted in a change in an
nounced plans to haAe Francis
Cardinal Spellman ride at the head
of today’s Loyalty Day parade with
Gen. MacArthur.
Instead, the newspaper reports,
the Pacific war hero will ride down
Fifth avenue in his own car with
city officials and military aides,
while the Catholic Archbishop of
New York will take part with rep
resentatives of other faiths.
The Times says the protests
were based mainly on the fact that
Gen. MacArthur is a member of
the Protestant Episcopal Church
and that that church’s bishop in
New York, the Right Rev. Horace
W. B. Donegan, was not assigned
a seat in the MacArthur car.
Call to Sponsor Reported.
The matter was reportedly
straightened out after a series of
telephone calls, including one to
the parade’s sponsor from the
general.
He was unaware of the plan
involving himself and Cardinal
Spellman, the Times says, and
expressed concern at the embar
rassing situation when Bishop
Donegan reached him in Chicago.
Maj. Gen. Courtney Whitney,
an aide to Gen. MacArthur, com
menting on the Times story, said:
“We know nothing about it.
The general always abides by the
arrangements made by the plan
ners of any function."
The parade has been held an
nually since 1948 under the
auspices of the Veterans of For
eign Wars.
kAA AAA m m ms _ . _
wv,vvv xiAiiciiru iu a dKc ran.
The Arrangements Committee
expects 500,000 persons to take
part in the anti-Communist dem
onstration.
Bishop Donegan was “more
amused than offended by the in
cident,” the Times says, while the
cardinal "agreed graciously to any
new arrangement the committee
in charge devised.”
Their role under the revised plan
was not clear.
They are to be joined by Dr.
Julius Mark, senior rabbi of Tem
ple Emanu-El, and Archbishop
Michael of the Greek Orthodox
Church.
The Times says the VFW got
“hundreds” of protests, mainly by
telephone.
Cardinal Spellman has taken an
active part in past loyalty dav
parades.
Milwaukee Gives Ovation
To Mac Arthur for 6 Hours
MILWAUKEE, April 28 UP).—
Milwaukee honored Gen. MacAr
thur’s wish to be regarded as a
native son yesterday with a roar
ing six-hour homecoming celebra- ■
tion.
"I cannot tell you with what 1
emotion I come again to my an- ^
cestral home,” the General of the ]
Army told 60,000 persons jammed
mto MacArthur Square when it '
* was over. “The warmth of the 1
? welcome has moved me more deep
ly than words can express and has
etched on my heart a memory I
will not forget.” <
Thus ended an absence of 39
years, although, as the general
said, “it was 52 years ago that
Milwaukee sent me forth into the
military service.”
He added, “I report to you that
service now is ended.”
At that point the crowd stopped
him, roaring, "No, no.” But he
smiled, waved his hand to stop the
protest, and concluded: “I want
you to know that I have done my
best and always have I kept the
soldier’s faith.”
From his speech, during which
MacArthur Square—named six
years ago by the city—was dedi
cated, the general and his party
went directly to Billy Mitchell
Field. After a lingering farewell,
he took off for New York in the
Constellation Bataan.
Altogether the general, his wife,
son and party were greeted by
crowds police estimated at between
750,000 and- ! million persons.
Big Tobacco Importer
OSLO—In the postwar years
1946 to 1950, Norway obtained
over 85 per cent of its tobacco
needs from the United States. In

compared with 8,375,000 pounds in
1949 and a prewar (1935-1939)
average of 5,090,000 pounds.

Gun Battle Injures 3
After Dynamite Blast
In Carolina Strike
By the Associated Press
WAKE FOREST, N. C., April 28.
—Rifles, shotguns and pistols
crackled in a raging battle here
iSst night at the strike-crippled
Royal Cotton Mill.
Three persons were slightly in
jured as gunfire exchanges fol
lowed a dynamite blast. Men on
;he picket lines said the dynamite
Kras thrown from a mill window,
others said a man near the picket
ine tossed the explosive across a
fence toward the mill. That burst
>et off the subsequent gunfire.
The violence, erupting on the
17th day of a seven-State strike
>f CIO Textile Workers in almost
>0 Southern mills, was the worst
>f several recent outbreaks.
The strike began when manage
ment refused the TWUA’s de
mands for a 13-cent increase to
i minimum of $1.14% hourly. The
organized workers here walked out
i week after the general strike
3f textile workers.
Witnesses said between 200 and
500 shots were exchanged.
No law enforcements officers
svere on hand.
Earlier in the day Police Chief
Joyd Whitman had withdrawn
lis four patrolmen and four dep
ity sheriffs after pickets had
lalted a truck -driver, jerked off
lis clothing and cut the tires.
“I’m not going to have blood
shed over this thing,” the chief
said. “It’s too big for my hands.”
Purvis Lee Perry, 23, a striker,
vas one of the three wounded.
J. C. Rheuark, foreman of the
sarding room, asserted that “when
she dynamite went off, they (the
Dickets) started firing from the
?ate. I "hit the floor. More than
200 shots were fired toward the
mill.”
Reporter Wounded.
When 50 highway patrolmen
noved in on the factory after the
firing subsided, Police Chief Whit-1
nan and Sheriff Robert Pleasants
mtered the plant. They told|
rickets: "We’re going to enforce
;he court order (which limits
Picketing to 10 persons within 150
yards of the mill fence). You
mow the terms. We’re not asking
you We’re telling you.”
Jim Rankin, a reporter for the
Raleigh News and Observer, was
wounded in the chest and shoulder
ay shotgun pellets. He said a
shotgun was fired from the mill
ifter some one outside the fence
mossed the dynamite toward the
plant. The third casualty, 16
year-old Ruby Mae Woodlief, suf
fered a flesh wound in the leg.
Senator Willis Smith, Democrat,
3f North Carolina, one of the mill’s
Dwners, said in Washington he
rad no comment.

News Conference Called.
Assistant Price Director Edward
Phelps called a news conference
to outline the orders to reporters.
The regulations will be made pub

A dispute between Price Direc

the proposal to rollback live cattle
prices caused a two-week delay
in issuance of the price orders.
It was understood that Mr. Di
Salle finally won White House
approval of his plan.
Agriculture officials reportedly
objected on the ground that re

contended lower meat prices were
vital to the economy and that the

5 Injured as 9 Are Driven Out
Of Row House by Flames
Nine persons, including two
small children and a blind woman,
were forced to flee from a house
at 1603 New Jersey avenue N.W.
early today by a fire which burned
out two of the building’s three
floors. Five of the adults were
injured.
The blaze apparently started in
the kitchen of the brick row house,
firemen reported, and spread so
rapidly that residents asleep on
the second floor found the stair
way blocked and had to climb out
windows.
Most of the injuries occurred
when the roof of the back porch,
on which five of the fleeing occu
pants took refuge, collapsed. In
jured were:
Mrs. Lillian Long, 69, blind,
admitted to Freedmen’s Hospital
with hip and rib injuries.
Mrs. Gertrude Casey, 43, also
admitted to Freedmen’s.
Mrs. Lorraine Green, 19; Mrs:
Louise Johnson, 23, and Robert
Green, 21, all treated for minor
injuries and released. All are
colored.
Mrs. Johnson was carrying her
Eric Johnston, urging immediate
approval of an 11-cent hourly
wage boost in the meat industry.
Rail Raise Approval Cited.
Mr. Johnston had refused to 1
pass on the wage agreement be- 1
:ween two unions and three large !
packing Anns because the pay
■aise would exceed that allowable
mder the wage policy. That (
limits wage boosts to 10 per cent 1
pver January, 1950, levels. 1
Mr. Jacobs said Mr. Johnston
should approve the agreement to I
be consistent with his approval !
pf a 6-cent hourly raise for non- i
pperating rail workers.
A condition of the agreement 1
with the packers would void the :
pact if governmental approval is
not obtained by May 5. The 120,
000 CIO workers affected have :
threatened - to strike if the con
tract is not approved. The AFL
union, representing another 105,
000 workers, has not announced
its plans.

ments:
1. The Labor Department re
ported that price rises in food and
farm products pushed up the Gov
ernment’s wholesale price index
by 0.3 per cent during the week
ended last Tuesday.
Farm Prices Decline.
2. The Agriculture Department
said the general level of farm
prices dropped about two-thirds
of one per cent from mid-March
to mid-April. However, an offi
cial pointed out that this decline
occurred before the period cov
ered in the Labor Department's
latest wholesale price index.
3. Edward P. Morgan, OPS en
forcement director, announced the
first big batch of court actions in
holding the price line will be taken
next week in Washington, Boston,
New York, Philadelphia, Spring
field, Mass., and other Eastern
cities. Mr. Morgan said one
prosecution is in the list. Others
involve damage suits against al

Near Dormitory Routs
150 Missouri Cp-eds
By th« Associated Press
MARYVILLE, Mo., April 28.—
A natural gas tank blew up today
near a college dormitory, crumbled
one wall and sent 150 girls fleeing
in nightgowns and pajamas.
“I thought a bomb had hit us,”
said Miss Sue Hood, 18-year-old
co-ed, who sped barefoot out of
the burning building onto the
campus of Northwest Missouri
State College just after midnight.
Thirty girls were injured or
burned and 17 were detained i»
the hospital. There were no fa
talities despite the violence of the
big blast that pitched one sheet
of steel four blocks and shot flame
hundreds of feet into the sky.
Water Main Broken.
The explosion popped plate
glass windows in the business
district 10 blocks away, severed a
water main and silenced tele
phones in part of the city of 7,000.
Don Robey, insurance man, said
“my wife and I were driving to
wards the campus when we heard
the first explosion. There was a
second blast, then a third and a
sheet of flame shot hundreds of
feet in the air.”

Marshall Fights Plan
To Give Up Offices
In New Apartments
Defense Secretary Marshall has
strongly objected < to a House
Armed Services Committee rec
ommendation that the Govern
ment junk plans to lease two
Massachusetts avenue luxury
apartment buildings as defense
office space, it was learned today.
Earlier this month, the com
mittee approved a report express
ing the view that the General
Services Administration would be
able to meet the Defense De
partment’s expanded needs with
out leasing the Boston House,
1711 Massachusetts avenue N.W.,
and the State House, 2122 Massa
chusetts avenue N.W.
in a letter to Chairman Vin
son, it was learned, Gen. Marshall
declared that the department’s
need for 1.4 million square feet
of additional space this year “is
still a requirement.” He said GSA
has earmarked 1,038,000 square
feet for the department, which
specifically iivluded 300,000
square feet in the two apartment
buildings.
“We hold no brief for use of
apartment buildings as office
space,” Gen. Marshall wrote. “But
since the buildings were com
mitted to us, plans have been
made to move certain designated
activities to the apartment build
ings, thereby providing expansion
for other overcrowded activities
in space presently occupied.
“The Public Buildings Service
has notified us that no other space
is available or can be made avail
able within the next six months
to the Defense Department in lieu
of the 300,000 square feet in the
two apartment buildings.”
Gen. Marshall declared a com
mittee letter to GSA “apparently
has created the impression the
Defense Department is not in
need of the required space.”
“I strongly recommend,” he
wrote, “that this impression be
corrected. The Defense Depart
ment needs space immediately in
the Washington area if it is to
effectively carry out its part in
the current emergency.”
However. Mr. Vinson told a re
porter today he feels “our posi
tion was sound in the first in
stance—we will stand by our re
port.” He said he thought GSA
“followed our suggestion affd is
not going to make available the
apartments.”
Landing on Ml. Rainier
Costs Flyer $350 Fine
By th« Associated Press
LONGMIRE ( Mount Rainier Na
tional Park), Wash., April 28—An
intrepid Air Force pilot with a
penchant for landing airplanes in
high places like the top of Mount
Rainier—landed in a United States
Commissioner's court yesterday.
His involuntary presence there
cost him a $350 fine and a sus
pended six-month jail sentence.
Unless he appeals, 1st Lt. John
Hodgkin must put-up the $350 by
3 p.m. next Wednesday.
The specific charge against him
was landing a plane in a national
park, which is a violation of Fed
eral law.
Lt. Hodgkin, 41, from Selma,
Calif., had a yen to land a plane
and take off from a point higher
than anybody else in the world.
April 12 he landed his stripped
down, ski-equipped Piper Cub
plane on top of 14,408-foot Mount
Rainier. He spent the night there.
A rescue crew of park rangers
toiled toward him. But Lt. Hodgkin
glided the plane down-mountain
to a frozen lake at the 5,000-foot
level. Fuel was dropped to him.
Then he flew to a small, straw
covered runway at Spanaway, near
Tacoma, whence the odd flight
started.
Commissioner Earl Clifford, in
passing sentence, observed he did
not intend to brand Lt. Hodgkin
as a criminal, but said:
“You should straighten out your
thinking.”

Brings Student's Arrest
By the Associated Press
COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 28.—
An Ohio State University grad
uate student—apparently angered
at the firing of Gen. Mac Arthur—
was charged yesterday with writ
ing obscene and threatening let
ters to President Truman.
The student, identified as Robert
T. Gaudlitz, 22, of Columbus, was
arraigned before a United States
commissioner and held in the City
Hall in default of $2,000 bond.
Secret Service agents said they
arrested Gaudlitz within hours
after the Post Office turned over
two letters to the President. Ob
scene words were used in the ad
dresses of both letters, the agents
reported.
One of the letters referred to
the President’s firing of Gen. Mac
Arthur as a “stupid bungle.”
Gaudlitz is a research fellow in
chemical engineering.

Philadelphia Symphony
Subject to Taft-Harfiey Act
A trial examiner of the Na
tional Labor Relations Board has
ruled that the Philadelphia Or
chestra Association, which oper
ates the Philadelphia Syjnphony
Orchestra, comes within the juris
diction of the Taft-Hartley Act
and the board.
William R. Ringer, the exam
iner, made the ruling in a case
in which he found that the Phila
delphia local of the American
Federation of Musicians had vio
lated the law in attempting to
cause discharge of a member
of the Chicago local of the AFMi
who signed a contract to playj
with the orchestra before obtain-j
ing transfer of membership to;
Philadelhpia.
The musician involved was
Clarence O. Karelia, a tuba player.
Mr. Ringer dismissed charges also
brought by Mr. Karelia against
both the orchestra association and
the Philadelphia local union be
cause the tuba player’s contract
had not been renewed in view of
his union activities.
Mr. Ringer found the contract
was not renewed because, in the
judgment of Director Eugene
Ormandy, the musician had
"failed to fit into the playing of
the whole orchestra.”
