The President plans to sign the executive order at Key West after it has been checked by the Treas ury Department and the Justice Department. It will be several days before the tax returns ac tually are made available to crime committee investigators, it was pointed out. Bauman Is Pleased. “I am really pleased about it— I’m very happy.” said Arnold Bauman, counsel for the investi gating committee. He added he would make “almost immediate use "of the authority to look at tax returns and jointed out he would call for the income tax re ports of civilians—presumably gamblers and other racketeers— as well as policemen. Chairman Neely of the Senate District Committee last Friday asked the President to order "rele vant” income tax returns released to the committee after Maj. Robert J. Barrett, superintendent of police obtained a temporary injunction blocking answers to a lengthy financial questionnaire sent out by the Crime Investigat ing Committee. Compromise Proposed.

Russell Young reached his office this morning. The police chief s attorneys made their compromise proposal after they were summoned to a board meeting of the Commis sioners late yesterday. Mr. Bauman was not invited to today’s conference, but he said he had not changed his mind and would not yield on the suggestion that the questionnaire omit in quiries into the financial standing of policemen's wives and children. “That is the obvious repository of any one attempting to conceal their financial standing,” Mr. Bau man said. “Every one knows tnat any one attempting to conceal illegal income would deposit or in vest in the name of his wife or children.” Mr. Bauman said another batch of questionnaires would go out to District policemen tomorrow re gardless of any action District (Continued on Page A-4, Col. 5.)

In an unprecedented move, Ho mer Brooks, law clerk to Municipal Court Chief Judge George P. Barse, late yesterday asked the United States Court of Appeals to order District Court to tell him why he has been denied admis sion to the District Court bar. i His petition was filed at about the same time that 13 of the 15 District Court judges announced they would ask the Supreme Court to reconsider its refusal of Octo ber 22 to review an appeals coifrt decision in favor of John W. Car ter. The appeals court held last July that District Court can not legally refuse to renew Mr. Carter's li cense, as it did in November. 1949, unless it holds a hearing and tells him in detail why it believes he lacks proper qualifications. The same basic issue is involved in the Carter case relating to is suance and renewal of bonds men's licenses by District Court judges and in the Brooks case concerning District Court refusal to permit lawyers to practice in that court. Mr. Carter twice has won the support of the appellate court, which handed down split decisions each time, in his deihand for an open hearing on his qualifications. Two weeks ago, the Supreme Court backed him to all practical pur poses. when it refused to review the appellate court ruling. But in the latest development of the four-year-old controversy, Attorney William E. Leahy said yesterday that on behalf of 13 of the 15 District Court Judges he will petition the Supreme Court to reconsider its decision to review the Carter case. Mr. Leahy said he will argue iSee BONDSMAN, Page A-16.1 4 Ex-Employes Held In $15,000 Looting of Grocery Warehouse Retailers Also Charged With Buying Stolen Property at Half Price Pour former employes of a South Capitol street wholesale grocery Arm, were accused today of stealing huge quantities of food from their former employer and selling it to the Ann's retail cus tomers at half price. Police said the four—picked up as they were unloading their latest haul at the home of a southwest grocer last night—have admitted about 11 lootings of the Union Wholesale Grocery Co., Inc., 1330 South Capitol street, which may have netted them between $10,000 and $15,000 worth of groceries since last July 11. Their arrest set off an all-night police roundup w’hich so far has netted six retail grocers. All six were charged with receiving stolen property. Used Price Lists. In quoting their cut-rate prices, police said, the quartet used price lists sent to grocers by Union Wholesale. They compared the goods they had on hand with the printed price lists, and made a 50 per cent markoff. The four middle-men in the scheme, each charged with one count of housebreaking and grand larcency, were: John T. Ford. 26, of the 5300 block of James place N.E.: Horace T. Nelson, 22 ,of the 1300 block of Monroe street N.W., Willie J. Newsom, 27, of the 2300 block of Eighteenth street N.W., and George N. Johnson, 24, of the 700 block of Delaware avenue S.W.

New GWU Treatment Reduces Big Cancers To Allow Operation Nitrogen Mustard, Drug Help in Apparent Cure of Two Patients By Wallace E. Clayton A new treatment which shows promise of being able to reduce inoperable cancers to a size which will allow their removal w-as re ported today by Dr. Calvin Klopp, dir ector of the George Washington University Cancer Cinic. Dr. Klopp told of treatment of inoperable cancers with a combi nation of nitrogen mustard and aureomycin. In a report prepar ed for delivery today to the American College of Surgeons at San Fran cisco, Dr. Klopp said tumors in two patients were reduced to a size permitting removal after treatment by the combined drug. Both patients, he added, are now back at work and show no evi dence of further cancer. The tumors were “bathed" over a period of time by the drugs w’hich were injected by arterial cannulization. In this method, developed at the GW clinic, a tube is inserted directly into an artery near the malignancy. The tube can be kept in place for a long period of time and the reg ular dosage administered through it. Dr. Klopp said that in addition to the two cases in which huge tumors were reduced to operable size, 30 advanced cancer patients undergoing nitrogen mustard - aureomycin treatment had ob tained symptomatic improvement. He said research proved the aureo mycin added to the nitrogen mus tard was more effective than treatment wfith nitrogen mustard alone. Dr. Klopp said relief of pain was a most prominent feature in cases where pain was due to pres ence of the disease in the treated region only. He said the combined drug do sage, given along with radiation therapy, should be halted when changes are detected in the pa tient’s bone marrow. Dr. Klopp reported that post operative examination of the re moved tumors in the two cases showed the malignant cells had been markedly reduced. Election Gives Edge to G. 0. P. In Party Tests Republicans Take Four House Contests for Gain 6f One Seat By Gould Lincoln Despite their loss of the mayor-i alty fight in Philadelphia, the Republicans appeared to have the better in the party contests scat tered over the Nation yesterday. They took from the Democrats the 3d congressional district of Ohio, which include Dayton and which was carried by the Demo crats in 1950, and held three other House seats, two in Pennsylvania and one in New Jersey, where elec tions were held to fill vacancies in Congress. They won the mayoralty con test in Indianapolis — ousting a: Democrat—in the home town of the new Democratic national chairman, Prank E. McKinney, who took an active part in the fight. And for the first time in 64 years, the Republicans elected a Mayor in Little Rock. Ark. Clean Government Issue. "Clean government” was the is sue in many of the city elections —an issue which the Republicans will raise aganist the Truman Democrats in the campaign next year. And clean government won yesterday in New York, Philadel phia and other major municipali ties. The result in New York, the country's largest city, came in the election of Rudolph Halley as president of the City Council. Mr. Halley was chief counsel of the Senate Crime Investigating Com mittee when it was headed by Senator Kefauver, and he ran as the Liberal-Independent-City Fu sion candidate. The Democratic candidate. Joseph T. Sharkey, a member of the council who has been its acting president, was de feated in a city that is largely Democratic. The Democratic victory in Phil adelphia was expected. Joseph F. Clark, jr., the present city con troller, ran as the Democratic candidate for Mayor on a "throw the rascals out” issue. He was supported by the strongly Repub lican Philadelphia Inquirer, and defeated Dr. Daniel A. Poling, in ternationally known Baptist min ister and chaplain of the Chapel of Four Chaplains, the Republi can candidate. Philadelphia for (See ELECTIONS.

Boy, 11, Proves Skill as Trapper In Capture of Roaming Monkey By Harry Lever It took Billy McEntee a week to catch the Southeast’s errant monkey, but when he finally did so last night it was with the skill of an experienced trapper. The safari of Billy, 11, started last Wednesday when the monkey. Picture on Page A-29. a misanthrope named Pal, disap peared from the home of its own er, S/Sergt. James Johnson, at 3924 Fourth street S.E. He re cently purchased it at a pet shop in Congress Heights. Since its departure the monkey was seen here and there. Police even had a lookout broadcast for it. Finally it began to frequent an apartment house at 3804 South Capitol street, which is whefe Bobby Sharp, 9, Billyis buddy, lives. Billy, a Star carrier who lives at No. 6 Halley place S.E., teamed with Bobby to try to catch the monkey after school. The boys stalked the apartment house and planted appetizers like grapes. nuts, apples and bananas, having read up on what monkeys eat. They then dreamed up a trap that would put Frank Buck to shame. Involving a rope and a pulley, it was so complicated than even the man who told the story couldn't eliminate the technical ities completely. Once they found that the mon key liked the apartment house, especially a room which contained switches for the master lights, the boys rigged their trap over a win dow of the room, hoping the mon key would jump through the window. After a week of wearily pulling the rope from their position on an elevated terrace, thereby opening and closing the window at inter vals—the door being shut—the trap worked last night, with Billy making the fateful pull. The boys then looked through the window, more through habit than hope—and there was Pal. Sergt. Johnson was summoned, identified Pal, and everybody went through the front door and pro nounced finis to the hunt for the monk.

The trio entered the bank in midmorning, according to police and Manager L. L. Wahl. The two armed men remained on each side of the doorway. The third jumped over a railing and ran behind the row of cashier’s cages. He scoped the money into a white bed sheet as one of his companions at the door counted off the seconds. As the count hit zero, the trio ran from the bank and jumped into a car at the doorway. A fourth man drove the vehicle away. The bank is the northwestern branch of the First Wisconsin National, the State’s largest bank. Mr. Wahl said the man who scooped up the money failed to enter the last of five cashiers’, cages as time ran out. New Red Plan for Buffer Zone In Korea Resembles U. N. Offer Differs Crucially, However, on Provision For Veto of Changes in Adjustments By tht Associated Press MUNSAN, Korea. Nov. 7.—Red truce negotiators submitted a new buffer zone counterproposal today strikingly similar to the Allied plan—but with crucial differences. United Nations representatives turned it down. But they said Allied Troops Attack Through Mud, Re gain Hill Lost to Chinese. Page A-7 they might talk about it in to morrow's sessions at Panmunjom. Under the Red plan a buffer zone would be created now along the existing front. If subsequent fighting changed the front lines materially, either side could pro pose a change in the military de marcation line for the zone. But there was no guarantee the other must agree to the change. “No adjustments could be made in the demarcation line as the Communists obviously would not agree,” said Maj. Gen. Henry I. Hodes, head of the U. N. sub committee. "It would be a de facto cease fire. It's the same thing they have brought up for three days.” However, Brig. Gen. William P. Nuckols, U. N. spokesman, said the Allies had made no "final judgment” on the Red plan. Gen. Nuckols said the U. N. felt the Communist proposal had “many ambiguities and many con tradictions.” He said the Red and Allied plans had “superficial similarities and fundamental discrepancies.” Both would accept the actual battle line as the basis for a de marcation line and demilitarized zone.

Politburo Member Lavrenty P. Beria, in a speech last night, warned the West that the Soviets would crush any attack on them and that they had the weapons with which to do it. Charges U. S. With Aggression. Malinovsky declared the policy of the Soviet Union is "directed at strengthening peace and co operation among nations.” "Entirely different,” he said, "is the policy of the ruling circles of the United States. This is a policy of aggression. Its aim is to estab lish domination of the American monopolists over the peoples of other countries—to rob the work ing masses and worsen their living standard.” His speech was broadcast by Radio Moscow. Malinovsky described Western “shouts about alleged war danger on the part of the Soviet Union” as "inventions.” He added: "The popular masses, however, will not let themselves be en meshed in a web of lies. With each passing day, they are be coming increasingly convinced that the Soviet Union, engaged in carrying out plans of peaceful construction, does not contemplate attacking the United States of America or any other country.” Stalin s Son Leads Air Show.

The Soviet delegate tossed in this request as new and important Truman Is Expected to Challenge Russia to Join Peace Move. Page A-6 proposals for easing East-West tension were expected from the Western Big Three. The American-British-French plans, believed to contain pro visions for a count of the world’s atomic weapons, are scheduled to be disclosed at midnight (6 p.m. EST.) This will mark the major event thus far of the sixth assem bly session which opened yester day with a call from France's President Vincent Auriol for a Tru man-Stalin-Churchill meeting in Paris. Up to Steering Committee. Mr. Vishinsky's request today concerns the question whether China will continue being repre sented in the U.

Mr. Vishinsky is expected to make a strong speech against Na tionalist China if and when the Assembly takes up the issue. The first battle is expected in the initial meeting of the 14-member Steering Committee, which rec ommends to the Assembly items for its agenda. Big oratorical guns open up on' the floor of the Assembly to morrow, and observers say that upon the tone of Mr. Vishinsky's address depends much of the prospects for this session. Mr. Vishinsky tried to get his name first on the speaker's list, but he was too late, and he had to be content with second place.
