Wedemeyer Assails
U. N.'s'Dissipation'of
America's Manpower
ly th« Associated Press
OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 1.—Lt.
Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer de
clared here last night that the
United States had been "naively" :
drawn into Korea and protested
letting the United Nations "dissi
pate our manpower all over the 1
world."
Discarding a prepared text, the 1
former commander of the China
Theater predicted in a dinner
speech "future powder kegs” be
tween the United States and Com
munists.
“If that war (Korea) must go
on, I say let the Asiatics who want
freedom fight,” he said.
"We can arm them. If it is the
decision for us to stay out there
and do the job, I say remove the
restrictions and give our boys
every weapon in the democracy’s
arsenal.” Presumably, that would
include the atom bomb.
He also said it would be “unfor
tunate” if the United States sent ’
large numbers of men to Europe 1
instead of arming European na- j
tions to fight.
Gen. Wedemeyer, who retired
from the Army Monday after 34
years, urged the arming of na
tions everywhere to help stop com
munism. In Darticular. he Draised;
the planned help for Franco Spain.
A critic of past United States’
policy in Chna, Gen. Wedemeyer
said that America's fighting in
Korea has been restricted by other
countries within the U. N.
‘‘It will be a long time before
we get an organization that will
perform effectively within the U.J
N.,’’ he said. “Until then, let’s not
let the U. N. dissipate our man
power all over the world.”
At an earlier news conference,
he said:
“In my judgment there will be
other incidents, other powder kegs
which could be fused and set off
at any place and time of their
(the Communists) choosing. We
must keep our powder dry, our
wings very strong.”
Gen. Wedemeyer, a witness in
Senate hearings on the ouster of
Gen. MacArthur, described Chiang
Kai-shek’s Nationalists as the free
world’s best hope in the Orient
against commu/an.

Stolen Hesse Jewels Are Returned to Royalty
By *he Auociatad Pratt
FRANKFURT, Germany, Aug.
L.—A fortune in German crown
jewels was returned by the United
States Army today to the princely
rouse of Hesse, from which they
were stolen by American officers
n 1945 at Kronberg Castle.
The jewelry which filled two
\rmy safes, numbered over 270
terns. It included diamonds to
oling more than 500 carats. One
sapphire alone weighed 116.20
sarats.
Col. Jack W. Durant in 1947
>egan a 14-year sentence in At
anta Federal penitentiary on con
viction of stealing the jewels,
valued at $1.5 million. His wife,!
ormer WAC Capt. Kathleen
Nash, has been released after
serving a sentence, an Army
spokesman said.
The titled owners were present
when Brig. Gen. Claude B. Mickel
wait, asssitant judge advocate,
formally turned over custody of
she jewels to their attorney,
Joseph Robinson of New York.
An airplane secretly brought the
ewels under military guard from
Washington to Frankfurt last
week end. Gen. Mickelwait accom
>anied them on the transatlantic
light.
The treasure rescues from
straitened circumstances Princes
Wolfgang and Phillip of Hesse,
Princess Sophia of Hanover, end
Countess Margarethe of Hesse,
the matriarch of the house.
An Army statement said not
all the jewels, filched from the
basement of Kronberg castle after
it became a postwar club for
American officers, had been re
trieve^
Some of the jewels given back
today had been smuggled into the
United States, but confiscated by
the Treasury Department after
arrests in the case. Others were
used by the Army for evidence at
the trial of one of the accused
officers.
The Treasury Department
eventually waived forfeiture of the
smuggled jewels so the German
owners could reclaim them.
