Former Deputy Says
Sheriff Curtailed Raids In Prince Georges 0 By J. L. Michael , Guy E. Curtis, former Prince | Georges County deputy sheriff : who resigned after a five-month 1 campaign against liquor and gam ; bling law violators, declared to | day that he quit because his cru sading activities were “curtailed” by Sheriff Carlton G. Beall. i “The sheriff,” he said, “never .ordered me to lay off any indi vidual, but he-made it clear that he felt that I was much too zeal ous.” As arrests and convictions piled up, the former officer charged, “Sheriff Beall needled and nee dled,” saying, "If you keep on locking up people, you’ll find your self in trouble, and maybe you’ll jget shot.’ “Finally,” Mr. Curtis added, “the sheriff ordered that I be permitted to do nothing more than serve routine papers, but I re fused to become a messenger boy.” His declarations were the first open indication of the rifts which have developed in party and offi cial ranks since Republicans took over the county government last fall after ousting the 25-year-old Democratic regime. Supported by Police. Mr. Curtis, who began his duties in February and left his $3,000-a year post early in July, also charged that “except for such figures as the late Jimmy LaFon-i taine, “there are about as many gamblers, big and little, operating I in the county as there were at any time in the last quarter century. “It also would astound you,”' he added, “to know how much bootleg liquor is sold in Prince Georges today and every day, in cluding Sundays.” Mr. Curtis said that in his ef forts to curb these law infractions he had received the “fullest co operation” from Police Chief F. Allen Richards and other mem bers of the county police force,' but had received nothing but; criticism from the sheriff and members of his staff. “But,” he asserted, “wrhen the: 30 cases I worked on were con cluded with only one acquittal. Sheriff Beall took his share of the credit and tried to take the Po lice Department’s share as well.” The sheriff’s, office and the po lice department each look hope fully for greater police powers but neither is willing to show its hand pending a report of experts now conducting a survey of the county; government. If the disagreement between j Sheriff Beall and the former dep uty produces a public controversy, Mr. Curtis expects Chief Richards and at least one delegate, William I. Hughes, to champion his cause. ! Mr. Curtis, who operates a night club in Seat Pleasant, said he hasj a wide acquaintance with the county's sporting fraternity but denied that he ever had under world connections. Three Maryland Crime Probes in Prospect By th« Associated Pres* BALTIMORE, July 31.—Three investigations—on the city, State and National levels—will be aimed at Maryland, and particularly Baltimore criminal elements, in I the next two months. Senator O’Conor, Democrat, of Maryland announced in Washing ton that his Senate Crime investi gating Committee will hold public hearings in the Capital August 8 and 9 on underworld activities in Maryland. He said the inquiry would be primarily concerned with “inter state crime activities.’ He added “matters of purely local concern, not involving possible interstate operations, will be left to State and local officials to handle.” At the same time. Chairman O’Conor noted that the Maryland Legislature had appointed a com mittee which he said "is vested with far-reaching authority and has summary jurisdiction within the State not inferior to that of the United States Senate Commit tee in the investigating of criminal transgressions.” Meanwhile, the chairman of the State group, Senator Crothers, Democrat, of Cecil County, said his committee will “in all prob ability” make a study of condi tions within the Baltimore City Police Department. He did not expand on that statement, but said the hearings probably will be held some time in September. The third investigation will be conducted by the Baltimore grand jury which yesterday summoned 26 witnesses for what State’s At torney Anselm Sodaro described as a “local-level investigation.” Among those called are William Adams, prominent colored politi cal and gambling figure, and Capt. Alexander Emerson, head of the police department’s vice squad. I. .I. .1 !■■■!■■ ■ Loyalty Board Opens Clubb Hearing Today Alter Clearing Davies By Garnett. D. Horner The State Department’s Loyalty Security Board begins a hearing today on undisclosed charges against Oliver Edmund Clubb after completely clearing John Paton Davies, jr. Mr. Clubb, director of the de partment’s Office of Chinese Affairs, and Mr. Davies, a mem ber of the Policy Planning Staff, were suspended June 27 pending hearings. The department announced last night that Mr. Davies has been cleared and returned to active duty “without prejudice and with the full confidence of the depart ment.” Both Served in China. Specific accusations against the men, both career foreign service officers, have not been made pub lic. Both have served in China extensively and their names were mentioned during the recent Sen ate investigation of Gen. MacAr thur’s ouster as Far East com mander. Mr. Davies’ hearing before the Loyalty Security Board began a week ago yesterday. The depart mental board’s clearance is sub ject to review by the Civil Service Commission Loyalty Review Board. Michael J. McDermott, State Department press officer, said there w’as no hesitancy in return ing Mr. Davies to duty pending the review because the evidence is “overwhelmingly in his favor.” Evidence Called Cnequiv^al. Carlisle H. Humelsine, Deputy Undersecretary of State respon sible for security matters, said he had reviewed the board's finding and found the Davies clearance “fully and unequivocally supported by the evidence.” The announcement of Mr. Davies’ clearance described him as ‘one of the department’s outstand ing foreign affairs officers.” Under a law limiting domestic assignments of Foreign Service officers to four years, Mr. Davies is due for assignment abroad next month. He will be assigned to the office of John J. McCloy, United States High Commissioner in Ger many. This transfer was sched uled last spring, the department said. Son-in-Law of Grady. Mr. Davies, 43, is a son-in-law of Henry F. Grady, American Ambassador to Iran. Born in China, where his parents were serving as Baptist missionaries, he entered the Foreign Service in 1932. He served in China during much of the war, then in the American Embassy in Moscow, and was assigned to the Policy Plan ning Staff here in 1947, There was no immediate com ment on the Davies clearance by Senator McCarthy, Republican, of Wisconsin who had hailed the an nouncement of the hearings for Mr. Davies and Mr. Clubb as “one of the first healthy indications that the State Department ... is going to start cleaning house.’’ On another issue, Senator Mc Carthy released a new blast at Secretary of State Acheson. He accused the State Department of “defense by lies” against his charges that 29 employes under loyalty investigation have access to secrets. In reply to the Senator’s orig inal demands, the department said some of the 29 are not even in the State Department, some already have been cleared and that some cases are being processed. It said employes are barred from access to secret papers when they are con sidered security risks. In a letter to Mr. Acheson yes terday the Wisconsin Senator said the department sought to deceive the people by claiming that in four years the Loyalty Review Board has never reversed a State Depart ment clearance. He contended that the review board has no pow er to reverse such cases, but only to send them back for rehearing. Man Blames Snake Gliding Down Arm For Jitters at Wheel fty th* Associated Press DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., July 31.—The young man charged with reckless driving had an excuse— he had a snake in his hat. David S. Youngmark of Green Cove Springs bought a foot-long boa at a tourist Attraction here, put it in his hat for safekeeping and clapped the hat on his head. He told police he became un nerved when the reptile slithered out of captivity and down his arm. Mr. Youngmark posted bond, left police headquarters disgusted ly and returned the boa to its natural habitat—the grass in front of the station.

The Federal Spotlight: Civil Service Commission to Halt Pay Cuts in Job Downgrading By Joseph Young New regulations to protect Federal employes from any future reduction in salary as a result of downward job reclassifications will be issued soon by the Civil Service Commission. The new order is expected to arouse a storm of protest from employes who already have been downgraded and who may not be afforded any retroactive protec-*---—— tion. Here is the situation: When Congress passed the 1949 Federal Reclassification Act, a Gove rnment wide job audit was ordered to determine whether some positions were overgraded. As a result, some lobs were down graded, and the em ployes involved w'ere forced to take a cut in salary. Recently, the Controller Gen- J°«»h Younl eral ruled that the commission, if it wanted to, could prevent any cuts in employes’ salaries because of downgrading, if the employe had been on the payroll since Oc tober, 1949, when the reclassifica tion law went into effect. The post-audit job program still has not been completed, and the commission says hundreds of thousands of jobs remain to be checked. So the new regulations being drafted will protect any em ploye in the future from taking a cut in salary, if his job is down graded as a result of this audit. But the commission is still un decided whether to take care of those employes who already have had their salaries reduced because of job downgrading brought about by the audit. Some commission officials say this would bring about mostly claims by employes who have quit the Government or by the estates of those w'ho have died. Failure to protect employes who already have been downgraded would be most unfair to them. This is acknowledge by commis sion officials w’ho are struggling with the problem. The result may be some retroactivity to a date not yet determined. But it is doubtful whether the commission’s new regulation will cover all employes who have been hit since October, 1949. * * * * INTERIOR — The Interior De partment's Recreation Association will hold its annual field day for Interior employes Saturday at Fort Hunt, Va. Various sports contests will be topped off by refreshments and a beauty contest to select “Miss Interior.” * * * * VICTORY—The House ' Civil Service Committee has voted to lift its ‘iron curtain” policy re garding news of its activities on Federal pay raise legislation. Act ing Chairman Morrison, who was opposed to this policy from the start, gave a major share of the credit for the committee’s de cision to make public its moves to The Star’s Federal Spotlight column The Louisiana Democrat said this column’s sharp attack on the committee’s news suppression was the major factor in causing the committee to reverse itself. Pre viously, the group had approved a resolution not to divulge any of its activities to the press. “I’m glad that the committee has changed its mind and a great deal of credit belongs to The Star and its Federal Spotlight column,” Mr. Morrison said. Despite the fact that the com mittee tried to suppress the news about the pay bill, The Star car ried full up-to-the-minute details of the group’s actions. Mr. Mor rison and a number of other com mittee members cited this as their argument for reversing the previ ous policy and co-operating with the newspapers in bringing the pay news to the hundreds of thou sands of interested Government employes and their families in the Washington area. * * * * PMA—J.

Driver of District Car Jailed, Fined $1,750 In Traffic Death Case A Washington man was sen tenced to two years in the Mary land House of Correction and fined a total of $1,750 yesterday after his conviction on charges result ing from a traffic accident in Capitol Heights, Md., last March 30, in which a girl pedestrian was killed and her mother seriously injured. Judge Nita S. Hinman Crane, in Upper Marlboro Police Court, im posed the sentence on Joseph C. Wesley, a 22-year-old Navy Yard employe, who lives in the 1400 block of Pennsylvania avenue S.E. “Since it appears that they can not think under any other cir cumstances.” the judge said, “it has become necessary to give peo ple who drive cars recklessly plenty of time in jail to think things over.” Struck by Wesley’s car as they walked along Sixty-first avenue. Capitol Heights, near their home in the 500 block were Miss Pa tricia McGuire, 19, and her mother, Mrs. Florence McGuire, 38. Both were taken to Casualty Hospital where the daughter died within an hour. Mrs. McGuire was hospitalized with broken legs and head injuries. Wesley was sent to prison and fined $500 for manslaughter. Ad ditional fines were $1,000 for driv ing drunk. $100 for driving with defective brakes, $100 for reckless ‘driving and $50 for colliding. Pinball Distributor Quits in Arlington A Washington pinball machine' * distributor said yesterday he has completely ceased operations in Arlington County as the result of a court ruling last week. Hirsh de La Viez, head of the Hirsh Coin Machine Co., said the finding of Arlington's Circuit Court that he must pay a $1,000 license fee levied by the State makes Arlington a poor business risk. He said this tax, by itself, would not be too much, but the action of the Ailington County Board in levying a similar license fee, plus a tax of $500 per machine, just “taxed me out of business.” The court ruling resulted from a suit filed by Samuel E. Brown, at torney frr Mr. de La Viez, asking the court to find the company not liable to the tax on slot machines. Meanwhile, Arlington Common wealth Attorney Denman T. Rucker said the county still has Mr. de La Viez listed as owing $1,009 in taxes for his pinball op erations in 1950. Mr. Rucker said he will proceed to take proper steps to insure payment oi these funds. Mr. de La Viez said he paid more than $1,000 in taxes to the county for his 1950 operations and does not owe any other tax funds.

Kawano, 40, a Hawaii-born Jap anese. said he was a member of the Communist Party's Hawaii execu tive board in 1949 when he quit both the party and Harry Bridges’ International Longshoremen’s and Warehousemen’s Union. He was president of the longshore local for 12 years. He named Jack W. Hall, the ILWU’s Hawaii regional director, as a Communist executive board member from 1946 through 1949 and 46 others as Communist members. Kawano testified before a closed session in Washington July 6. The committee released texts of his testimony to Hawaii newspapers for use today. Reds’ Main Weapons. He testified the ILWU, the Ha waii Civil Liberties Committee and the Honolulu Record, a weekly, were the Communists’ main weap ons in their bid for power in Hawaii. Kawano also told the commit tee: i In 1949 the national Communist headquarters in New York was the final court of appeals in policy disputes between Hall and non union members of the Hawaii Communist board. The Honolulu Record was start ed at Communist instigation in 1948 and Koji Ariyoshi was named , editor. Ariyoshi, Hawaii-born Japanese, served with United States Army intelligence in China in 1944 and 1945. More than 50 per cent of the Hawaii Civil Liberties Committee members are Communists. In 1948, Kawano said, a Com munist meeting at Hall’s home de cided the Communists should try to take control of the Hawaii Democratic Party. He said they didn't fully succeed but he felt they could. May Be Stronger Today. He said he believed that the ‘ Communist Party, because of its influences in the ILWU, Civil Liberties League and Democratic Party, is “just as strong if not stronger” than when he quit in 1949. The ILWU, he said, represents about 21,000 Hawaii workers on docks and sugar and pineapple plantations. He said he broke with the ILWU during the 1949 Hawaii strike when the Communist Party de cided to call out sugar workers in support. He said he was convinced a sugar strike would have failed and that the dock strike then would have been lost. Kawano refused to testify be fore a House Un-American Ac tivities Committee hearing here in April, 1950, after he had quit; the party. He said he changed his mind after the Korean war began and decided "I owe it to my country to bring to light all I know about Communist activities in Hawaii.” ————— $273 Million More Asked By Truman for AEC Work President Truman today asked , Congress for a supplemental ap- , propriation of S273 million for the , Atomic Energy Commission, ex- , plaining the money was needed in ; part for “certain new plans and equipment projects made neces sary by recent technical develop ments.” The President said also that the expenditure contemplated “pro gram acceleration.” He explained that higher costs j were responsible in part for the new request. There was nothing to indicate hydrogen bomb experiments were involved in the new program. The President also asked for $3,050,000 for the General Services Administration for administrative; operation, explaining that in crease in prices and a “substan-, tial increase in electric power here called for the added expenditure.” West Virginia ranks next to Pennsylvania in its mineral wealth.

Stales Win House Fight For Tidelands Oil Bill By Vote of 265 to 109 By the Associated Pres* The House has decided the States have undisputed right tc the riches of their submerged lands for 3 miles out to sea—10 ',2 miles in the case of Texas. That includes the vast deposits of oil already known to lie under the coastal waters of Texas. Cali fornia and Louisiana. But yesterday’s 265-to-109 roll call decision by the House is still far from becoming law. It must be acted upon by the Senate, and if passed there, would go on tc President Truman. The President in 1946 vetoed a similar bill, and Congress did not muster enough strength to over ride the veto. The States and the Federal Government have for years dis puted ownership of the submerged —sometimes called tidal—lands, Besides oil. they may contain al most any of the other riches of dry land, such as coal, iron, copper. Main Provisions. The bill passed by the House makes these main provisions: 1. Gives coastal States, except Texas, title to land for three miles out to sea. Texas gets title to 10 *2 miles out because the terms under which she was admitted to the union specified that her boundaries ran out that far. i. Gives States ownership of oil and other minerals under their submerged lands. 3. The Federal Government gets full power from the State boundaries out to the edge of the continental shelf. That is where the sea bottom falls off steeply, forming the oceanic Seeps. The continental shelf is larrow, in some places, runs out 150 miles or more in others. 4. Gives the Federal Govern nent the right to lease submerged ands beyond State ownership. 5. Royalties collected by the Fed eral Government from exploitation >f its submerged lands would be ‘armarked, 37 y2 per cent for the :oastal States, and the rest for ■etirement of the national debt. Artificial Rainmaking Cleared as Flood Cause By th« Associated Press The chief of the Weather Bureau yesterday notified Sena tor Johnson, Democrat, of Col orado there is no evidence that artificial rain making had had anything to do with the recent Kansas-Missouri floods. F. W. Reichelderfer wrote that the air masses responsible for the flood carat from the North Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, “beyond the scope of artificial rain-making activities.” Senator Johnson said he would give Mr Reichelderfer’s letter to Senate subcommittees studying legislation to regulate the rain makers. Israel Election Gives Ben-Gurion's Party 38 Per Cent of Votes By the Associated Press TEL AVIV. Israel, July 31.— Official returns from 987 of 1.50C polling places today showed Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion’s Mapai (Labor) Party leading with 38.63 per cent of votes counted in yesterday's parliamentary elec j tions. The conservative General Zion ists were second with 17.76 pei cent throughout the nation. Results so far gave the Com munists only 3.32 per cent and the left-wing pro-Russian Mapam 11.85. The right-wing Freedom Party had 7.45 per cent, the Religious Workers, 6.36; the left-liberal Progressives, 3.58, and the re mainder was scattered among other parties of the 17 which campaigned. 880,000 Voters Eligible. Balloting was for 120 members of the Knesset (Parliament) and was the second election in Israel’s |three-year history. About 880,000 (voters were eligible. Of these, about 400,000 were new citizens who -have come to Israel since the last election in 1949. They were unknown fac tors in Israeli politics and made pre-election guessing doubly haz ardous. Results apparently showed, however, that they were impressed with Ben-Gurion’s argument that only his policy of a state-planned economy and a foreign policy based on the United Nations Charter could assure continued immigration and a living for new comers. Returns From Cities. Ben-Gurion’s Mapai won 37 per cent of the vote in Jerusalem —the first city to post complete returns—and 3i per cent from 200 polling places in thi commer cial city of Tel Aviv. The General Zionists had only 12 per cent in Jerusalem but snagged second place there as they did in Tel Aviv w-ith 26 per cent of the 146,000 votes cast in that coastal city, The Freedom Party was third in Jerusalem with 10 per cent and the nationalist right-wing Cheruth Party was third in Tel Aviv with 9 per cent. The strict orthodox Jewish group did well in the balloting nu merically, but were split into so many parties that their political effect is scattered. No party which ran on a strictly religious plat form in Jerusalem, for instance, won more than 7 per cent of the vote. The total of all religious parties, however, w'as 28 per cent there.
