Rob ert J. Barrett’s attorneys. District Couit Judge James R. Kirkland today decided in favor of the Commissioners in their fight with Police Chief Robert J. Bar rett over answering a financial questionnaire. The judge, however, questioned the authority of the Commission Text of Ruling on Police Quiz. Page A-3 ers and the relevancy of many of the items in the questionnaire. He ruled in their favor on the grounds that Maj. Barrett’s com plaint was “premature” and the court lacked jurisdiction “at this time.” Maj. Barrett sought a tempor ary and permanent injunction to restrain the commissioners from enforcing their order to police to answer the searching financial' questionnaire issued by the Senate District crime subcommittee. The commissioners, on the other hand, were fighting to dissolve the tem porary restraining order granted last week by Judge Kirkland. In today's action. Judge Kirk land dismissed Maj. Barrett’s com plaint and dissolved the tempor «ry restraining order. The deci sion means that policemen who refused to answer the question naire would not have the pro tection of the court. Canfield's Plea Denied. As soon as the decision was handed down. Attorney Austin Canfield, representing Maj. Bar rett, asked the court to delay re cording the decision until Monday to allow attorneys time to study their next move. His plea would have continued the temporary re straining order over the week end. Judge Kirkland denied the plea. Later Mr. Canfield described the decision to newsmen as "unusual.” He said Maj. Barrett’s attorneys immediately would study their next move. "Frankly, we don't know where we are going next,” he said. “These men (the police) now have no protection. They could be called in and if they refused to answer the questionnaire they could be fired.” As soon as the judge’s ruling reached the District Building, the Commissioners went into confer ence with Corporation Counsel Vernon West and Arnold Bauman, counsel for the Senate District Crime Subcommittee and author of the disputed questionnaire. Trying to Analyze Order. After two hours, Engineer Com missioner Bernard L. Robinson emerged long enough to tell news men, “We are trying to analyze the court's order and its effect on our future course of action.” Shortly before 1 p.m., Maj. Bar rett's attorneys arrived at the District Building to confer with ■ the Commissioners. The attor neys had requested the confer ence. Judge Kirkland, at the outset of his written opinion, explained that he had issued the temporary restraining order because of “a casual examination of the 27-page questionnaire containing some 1,750 questions, many of which appear irrelevant and immaterial to the inquiry, plus the apparent unreasonably short time to an swer.” The original deadline for return of the affidavit questionnaires wras (Continued on Page A-3, Col. 1.) Commons Query Due On Jane Russell Baby Ey the Associated Press LONDON, Nov. 9.—A member of parliament demanded an offi cial inquiry today into the re moval of a London baby from this country by Hollywood's Jane Rus sell. “We don’t want to export babies to Hollywood or anywhere else,” Laborite Marcus Lipton told news men. •He said he will bring the mat ter up in the House of Commons next Thursday as a formal ques tion to Sir David Maxwell Fyfe, the Home Secretary.

A. 3 Red Jets Downed, 2 Damaged By Allied Flyers in Air Battles Temperature at Front Dips to 17 Degrees; Communists Reinforce Kumsong Area By tn« Associated Press UNITED STATES 8th ARMY HEADQUARTERS, Korea, Nov. 9. —Allied warplanes sent three Communist jets crashing in flames today, the United States 5th Air Force reported. This was the big gest score since October 23. Two other Russian-made MIG 15s were damaged. The Air Force said all Allied planes returned safely. Two aerial battles were fought over Northwest Korea, with 52 American jets pitted against about 50 Communist planes. It was one of the few times the two sides have met on near-even terms. On the ground, Chinese forces threw a series of small attacks be fore daylight at Allied positions near Yonchon and Kumsong. Yonchon is in the west, Kumsong on the central front. The temperature dipped to 17 degrees last night. The ground was white with frost and flying weather was good. AP Correspondent Milo Fameti reported a new Chinese division was in the line south of Kumsong. An Allied officer said a fresh Red army corps—about 30,000 men— was believed moving into the area. The recent surge in Red activity ground Kumsong may have been a screen for the shifting of Com munist troops, the officer said. The 8th Army estimated that 610 Reds were killed and 527 were wounded yesterday in the Kumsong sector fighting. The Reds also were reported1 building up their tank forces around Yonchon in the west. An Allied briefing officer said the Chinese have moved up enough armor and artillery to be "capable; of launching a limited offensive"! on the western front. Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway visited the front and took a look at the Chinese through ) field glasses. The U. N. commander remarked he wanted “to get some of that good front-line air." Air observers reported intense Red activity behind the front ap peared to be dropping off after Allied warplanes attacked more than 1.300 vehicles on the high ways last night. Despite continuous pounding by Allied artillery, the Communists this morning still held two peaks wrested from the Allies Sunday near Yonchon. Former Czech Attache; Got Atom Data lor Reds, OXonor Says State Department Took No Action on Charges, Senator Discloses By J. A. O'Leary Chairman O'Conor of a Senate! Internal Security subcommittee charged last night that a former military attache of the Czecho slovakian Embassy here was a “key figure in the Communist espionage apparatus" and gath-: ered information about atomic energy and bacteriological war fare. Senator O'Conor named the at tache as Col. Oto Biheler and said he returned to his homeland last February on a visa which author ized him to go to Canada and return. a statement, issued Dy senator O'Conor said that information ob tained from intelligence agencies discloses that one of Col. Biheler’s assignments in this country was "to procure information on the re search activities in the field of bacteriological warfare which are being conducted at the Army cen ter at Camp Detrick, Md.” Described as Key Figure. The Senator said that “as a key figure in the Communist espionage appartus in the United States, Col. Biheler has been engaged in the I procurement of information con cerning atomic energy, the uran ium stock of the United States and bacteriological and chemical war fare.” The date made public by the Maryland Senator shows that, be tween his first trip to this coun try in August, 1948, and his de parture early this year, Col. Biheler was given visas by the State Department/o travel in and out of the country. “During the period of time that Col. Biheler was operating in the United States,” said Senator O'Conor, “an official of the De partment of Commerce, who was concerned over Col. Biheler’s ac tivities in exporting vital articles to Czechoslovakia . . ., notified the Department of State of such ac tivities. Derogatory Data Presented. “On two occasions prior to the issuance of visas to Col. Biheler by the Department of State, derogatory information procured by the intelligence agencies on Biheler was directed to the at tention of certain officials of the Department of State, but on neither occasion was Col. Biheler declared persona non grata.” Senator O’Conor irointed out that several of the visas were issued to Col. Biheler after the enactment of the Internal Secu rity Act in September, 1950.

Reds Believed Waiting For New Truce Order After Vishinsky Talk Korean Negotiations 'Inconclusive/ Allies Say Foe Is Stalling •y the Associated Press MUNSAN, Korea, Nov. 9.— Truce negotiators canceled their afternoon meeting today after an ‘‘inconclusive and unproductive" morning session. A United Nations command communique, which described the talks as fruitless, said negotiators would meet tomorrow at 11 a.m. (9 p.m. Friday EST.) Brig. Gen. William P. Nuckols, U. N. spokesman, said he got the impression Communist represen tatives might be stalling. 38th Parallel Not Mentioned. Allied sources suggested the Reds might be waiting for new in structions in view of Soviet For eign Minister Andrei Vishinsky's proposal yesterday in Paris for a cease-fire within 10 days. Mr. Vishinsky suggested all troops withdraw from the 38th Parallel and foreign units leave Korea within three months. Gen. Nuckols said neither Mr. Vishinsky nor the 38th Parallel were mentioned during today’s two-hour-and-45-minute meeting in a dirty yellow tent in Panmun jom. Gen. Nuckols said he felt Mr. Vishinsky’s remarks would not ‘‘tend to allay any of the fears that have arisen” about Commu nist intentions. Red Position "Elusive”. Negotiators of both sides pro pose creating a 2 Vi mile wide buffer zone along the present bat tle line with certain alterations. They differ on the alterations and the time for drafting the buffer, zone. Today’s meeting was again de voted to the Communist proposal which the Allies "completely re jected” yesterday. Gen. Nuckols described the Red position as “elusive.” He said it was "very obvious” the Commu nists were still demanding what would amount to a cease-fire now which would relieve them from pressure to solve other armistice problems. Half of Childless Husbands On Draft List Become Fathers By George Beveridge About half of the men listed for deferment as childless husbands by District draft boards last sum mer are turning out to be either fathers or fathers-to-be, draft offi cials estimated today. Frank D. Norton, the District’s deputy draft chief, said the esti mate is based on birth certificates and doctors’ reports of pregnancy which have poured into draft headquarters since passage of the new draft law. Responsible for the influx, he said, are these two Selective Service rules: 1. Married men no longer can get dependency deferments, under the draft law, if they have only a wife to support, except in cases of extreme hardship. 2. Regulations allow husbands to be deferred, as fathers, if— before they are ordered to report for induction—they submit doc tors’ statements that their wives are pregnant, dr if they submit birth certificates. Not all the birth certificates re ceived, Mr. Norton stressed, re present ' newly-born dependents. In some instances, he said, they show laxity on the part of fathers in reporting parenthood to draft! boards. Until the new draft law passed, it didn’t make much dif ference, since marriage was suf ficient for a dependency defer ment. Congress’ main purpose in wiping out deferment for child less husbands was to make more men beEween the ages of 18 Vi and 26 liable for induction, in order to fill the increased draft calls ex pected next year. But, if-the experience of Dis trict draft boards stands up as a criterion, the draft “take” of child less husbands will be a small one. After passage of the draft law last June 29, an officials’ check (See DRAFT, Page A-5.) U. S. Challenges Russia to Start Arms Talk Now Yugoslavia Files Complaint in U. N. Against Soviet By th« Associated Press PARIS, Nov. 9.—The United States called on Russia today to start immediate talks in the United Nations on disarmament instead of waiting until some time before June of next year. United States Ambassador Philip C. Jessup threw out the challenge at a specially called news confer ence where he also charged the Russians with trying to bypass the U. N. in asking for a world-wide meeting on arms reduction. The U. N. Assembly itself re ceived a formal complaint from Yugoslavia that Russia and her satellites are trying to drive their peoples to the point of making war on Marshal Tito's lone wolf Communist state. Yugoslavia has made many charges against Russia and the other Communist nations since Tito split with the Cominform in 1948, but this was the first formal complaint of that nature filed with the U. N. Aggresive Pressure Charged The Yugoslav complaint said Russia and her satellites have been exercising aggressive pres sure against Tito with the aim of threatening Yugoslavia's territor ial integrity and national inde pendence. Russia's proposal for a world arms conference before June. 1952. was in reply to the United States plan for progressive reduction in both conventional and atomic weapons after an accurate arms census. Dr. Jessup told newsmen the United States, with the support of Britain and France, would push for quick U. N. action on arms re duction despite the Soviet refusal to accept the Western plan, which Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky said yesterday made him laugh. The Western plan was presented by United States Secre tary of State Dean Acheson. The tough talk between Russia and the United States spurred the smaller powers to plead for greater collective security against the possibility of another Korea. Barks Any U. S. Peace Plan. Representatives of Cuba. Hon-! duras and New Zealand were: among those who spoke to the As sembly today. Dr. Tiburcio Carias of Honduras said his country supports any plan designed to help the U. N. main tain peace. F. W. Doidge of New Zealand urged increased measures of col lective security to give the free world strength to repel any future aggressions such as occurred in Korea. In his policy speech he called on all U. N. members to “pull their weight in deeds as well as words” for an effective system of world wide collective security. Cuba’s chief delegate.

Y; Piers Under'Truce' Rebel Longshoremen Agree to Work While Mediation Proceeds By th# Associated Press NEW YORK, Nov. 9.—Striking longshoremen flocked back to freight-jammed piers today after their leaders agreed to end the port's billion-dollar, 25-day wild cat walkout. Along the miles of waterfront from Hoboken and Jersey City, N. J., to the far reaches of Brooklyn, thousands streamed to work be fore the 1 p.m. deadline set by their leaders. There were jobs aplenty for all at the long-idle piers. In Hoboken, police were helping round up extra men. The rebel union faction, which steamrollered the strike into New York's longest port tieup, yielded to a New York fact-finding board in the pre-dawn hours to end the strike. Dispute Still to Be Aired. No mention was made concern ing settlement of intra-union dif ferences. The dispute—principally | over wage scales in a new con tract and legality of the contract itself—still must be aired by the board. The strike was the costliest in the history of the world’s biggest port, with piers sprawled along both New York and New Jersey, i At the peak of the walkout, 114 I ships were tied up. 1 New York State Industrial Commissioner Edward Corsi, who .appointed the three-man inquiry panel, announced shortly before 2 a.m. that the ports of New York and Boston would be open at 1 p.m. today. Boston was the only other port completely shut down by th/s strike, with other East Coast ports being affected from time to time. Four-Hour Closed Meeting. In New York, an increasing number of dockers had been re turning to work on non-military ships in recent days. | Mr. Corsi’s announcement fol lowed a four-hour closed meet ing between representatives of rebel longshoremen and the panel. All the stevedores are members of the AFL International Long shoremen's Association, whose At lantic Coast district represents ’65,000 dock workers from Maine to Virginia. More than 20.000 union docker* were affected by the minority walkout, which began over ratifi cation October 12 of a new ILA contract with East Coast shipping and stevedoring companies. The dissident group, led by John (Gene) Sampson, went out three days later. Pickets, aided by motorcades of jstrikers, barred entrance to the docks by non-striking Ua mem bers. In many instances, fists and rocks flew during the dispute, but no serious incidents occurred. In some instances, workers went to and from the docks aided by polica details. | Concessions Cnmentioned. 1 In announcing the back-to-work move, Mr. Corsi made no mention of concessions, if any, coming from either side. He said the inquiry board would continue its public hearings on the dispute. The board urged “that there be no discrimination in hiring or re-hiring” and added: “The Strike Committee lent it* co-operation to Board of Inquiry in full recognition of the necessity of protecting the port of New York 'and of the public interest.” Joseph P. Ryan, head of the ILA. said he was “very happy” that the walkout was over and there would “of course” be no dis crimination against strikers in the shape-up hiring system. Mr. Sampson, who was present at the board meeting, said the settlement means “approximately 25.000 men will be going back to work.” The strike brewed after Mr. Ryan announced ILA acceptance of a new contract with the New York Shipping Association. Mr. Ryan said the stevedore balloting among the 65,000 men showed a 2-to-l majority in favor of con tract acceptance. The Sampson group contends that the vote was a fraud, and that ILA voting machinery is out moded. It demands scrapping of the pact and re-negotiation of wage and other issues. The agreement gave the dockers a $2.10 hourly wage, a 10-cent boost over previous wages. The strikers wanted a 25-cent-an-hour pay hike.
