33 Engineer Officers
Graduated at Belvoir
In First Postwar Unit
The first group of officer candi
dates to be put through their
schooling at Fort Belvoir since
World War II were graduated yes
terday as second lieutenants.
Thirty-three engineer corps offi
cers, the first of some 1,600 ex
pected to be turned out at the
school this year, were left of the
original 60 men who started with
the class in September. The ma
jority of the others were “washed
out” during the rigorous course.
Longer and more comprehensive
than its predecessor, which was
closed in the summer of 1946, the
present officers’ candidate school
takes 22 weeks. The curriculum in
cludes two new courses, one in
atomic warfare and one in air
borne operations.
To Meet Expansion Needs.
Reactivation of the school, which
produced upwards of 25,000 war
time officers, has been undertaken
to meet the needs of service ex
pansion and fill ranks that will be
left vacant by the release this
spring of involuntarily recalled re
serve officers.
Requirements for admission to.
the school are a high school edu-j
cation or its equivalent and an
Army general classification test
score of 115 or better. •
Os the group graduating yes-,
terday, only seven are college
graduates. Twenty-five of the 33
new lieutenants are men who
have been drafted into the serv
ice since the beginning of the
Korean fighting, and the average;
age of the whole graduating class
is 23 years.
Honor Man of Class.
Honor man of the class was
Lt. Charles B. Baldwin, of Spring
field, Mo. He was presented with
a certificate and a year’s mem-;
bership in the Society of Ameri-i
can Military Engineers by its |
president, Rear Admiral Leo 0.1
Colbert.
Two Washington area men re
ceived their commissionss at yes-j
terday’s ceremony: Lt. Bradford
C. DeWolf. of 3322 O street N.W.,
a 1945 graduate of St. Alban’s
School, and Lt. John H. Showalter,
of 914 Silver Spring avenue. Silver
Spring, who was graduated from
Calvin Coolidge High School in
1944.
Police Still Baffled -
In Schuster Murder
■y the Associated Prett
NEW YORK. Mar. 12.—Anxious
New Yorkers clamored today for
the capture of young Arnold j
Schuster’s killer, but baffled police
provided no indication that the
sensational case would be solved.
The city continued to buzz with
excited talk of the murder or Mr.
Schuster, the 24-year-old pants
salesman wlvose tip led police to
the arrest of Willie (the Actor)
Sutton, notorious bank robbed »
Ms. Schuster was shot dbwn
Saturday night on a sidewalk near
his Brooklyn home. He had
pointed out Sutton to police Feb
ruary 18.
Police consulted several leaefing
psychiatrists in the belief that a
criminal psychopath might have
killed Mr. Schuster.
Police also began a round-up of
known psychopaths yesterday ini
Brooklyn. Detective work along
this line follows the theory that
a hero-worshipper of Sutton might
have done the shooting.
30 Warned on Lack
Os Off-Street Parking
A group of 30 District owners
of houses built since 1949 have
been yarned they face penal
ties for failure to provide off
street parking.
The warnings were given at a
Municipal Court hearing, con
ducted by Charles O’Connell, as
sistant building inspector. April 29
was set as a deadline for comply
ing with the regulation.
Other groups were called to
hearings today and tomorrow. A
total of about 100 homeowners,
mainly in the areas of the 1200
block of Farragut street N.E.,
Emerson street N.E. and the 4800
block of Queen’s Chapel road
N.E., will be called.
Most of the group told Mr.
O’Connell they were unfamiliar
ijith the regulation, which was
adopted for all new homes in
1949. Many of the homes are in
closed by fences that have no
gates large enough to allow cars
to pass through for off-street
parking.
Some of the home owners
hauled into Municipal Court are
wondering what they can do about
the yarning.
In several instances, even if the
proper gates were cut in the
fences, it would be impossible to
drive a car on the property be
cause of the steep incline. Mrs.
A. J. Faulstich of 1247 Gallatin
street N.E. is one. The lot slopes
down to a 4-foot retaining wall.
Across the alley, a lot owned by
Mrs. Walter M. Kern, 1246 Far
ragut place N.E., has 10 steep steps
going down the bank.

Red Cross Campaign
Reaches 21% of Goal
In Metropolitan Area
Red Cross fund campaign work
ers today had chalked up $296,403,
or 21 & per cent of the $1,385,300
Metropolitan Area goal.
Campaign officials said this was
nearly 2 per cent behind the prog
ress tabulated by the third report
luncheon last year, and they urged
that the size of gifts be increased
and coverage in the drive speeded.
Total gifts reported at yester
day’s third report luncheon were
about 9,000 less than at the com
parable stage last year, according
to the .figures, or 42,816.
Averaf# gifts this year must be
at least 30 cents higher in order to
make the goal, the workers were
told.
Divisions Reporting.
Divisions reporting yesterday
were: Residential, 49 per cent of
its $116,000 quota: General Busi
ness, 25 per cent of its $382,000
quota: City. 44 per' cent of its
$57,000 quota, and Government,
12 per cent of its $646,500 quota.
Alexandria and the counties do
not report at the Tuesday lunch
eons. These report sessions are
held Tuesdays and Fridays.
In a message to yesterday’s
luncheon, in the United States
Chamber of Commerce Building,
Secretary of Labor Tobin pointed
out that the Red Cross “gives us
an opportunity to practice the
Golden Rujfe. - j t 2 .
“By donating to it, we can dd
unto others as we would that they
do unto us,” said his message, de
livered by William P. McCahill,
assistant to the chairman of the
President’s Committee on National
Employ the Physically Handi
capped Wfeek.
Help To Fellow Man.
“From the joy of giving to the
Red Cross, we can find the great
satisfaction cf knowing that we
have helped our fellow man,” the
Secretary said.
Mr. Tobin pointed cut that “the
Red Cross is the American people
helping themselves. That is why
the Red Cross has become an in
dispensable part of our American
way of life.”
He noted that one of every four
persons in the United States is a
Red Cross member, and one of
every 90 is an active volunteer
for the organization.
In outlining services performed,
he said: *
‘ln helping to care for the
wounded, in obtaining emergency
leave for Gl’s whose families need
them, in assisting the wives and
families of servicemen, the Red
Cross is making life a little easier
for those who are defending our
liberties.
“The interest of the Red Cross
in servicemen does not cease when
they are discharged. Millions of
veterans have been served by the
Red Cross. The veterans in hos
pitals, and those who need family
services have always found the
Red Cross ready, willing and able
to help. The Red Cross is con
stantly there to help when
needed.”
He told also, about the blood
program, which “is frequently the
differehce between life and death.
It is the miracle of medicine and
the brdtherhood of man working
together to save human lives.”
The homeless and the sick ‘in
the flood areas last summer found
the Red Cross their aAly in time
of need, he added.

Preview of Sprirtg-Ends Tonight
With Close of Garden Show
By James Birchfield |
Washington’s spring garden!
preview, the National Capital
Flower and Garden Show, will
end tonight, after its week-long
stand in the National Guard Ar
mory.
Throughout the week, visitors
to the show have been treated to
new plant varieties and new meth
ods of treating the home grounds.
Among the many displays is one
showing the lawn grass of tomor
row. A lawn in the Association of
Professional Gardeners’ exhibit is
of Merion bluegrass, one of the
more promising new strains of
lawn grass.
The new Merion, 6hown
the courtesy of Fred V. Grau of
the Agriculture Department re
search center at Beltsville, Md..
promises, in time, to give home
owners a better lawn than any
thing they have had in the past.
It is not generally available com
mercially yet, however.
Star Award Presented.
In yesterday's garden club
events, Mrs. Edward L. Tolson,
jjr., of the Glen wood Road Garden
Club, was presented The Evening
Star award for her outstanding
arrangement of the day. The
award was presented by Boris V.
Timchenke, show architect.
The winning arrangement, an
interpretation of “rain today and
tomorrow,” was one of cypress
knees, alder branches and ivy.
Guest exhibitors were Mrs.

will be a full-scale probe remains
to be seen. Such an investigation, j
it has been pointed out, would!
cost between SIOO,OOO and $150,000i
and would require the hiring of
expert accountants, lawyers and
engineers.
Apparently today's action leaves!
the early decisions in the hands:
of the Kennedy subcommittee.
The Smith resolution said the!
subcommittee ’was to decide "what
action should be taken” with the
possibility of legislation.
Asked about the nature of the
public hearing, Mr. McMillan
said the first witnesses probably
would be officials of the Public
Utilities Commission and the
transit company.
J. A. B. Broadwater, president
of the company, has expressed his
willingness to appear as a wit
ness. He said he would be avail
able to “explain everything about
his company.”
Speech Viewed as Challenge.
This followed a speech by Mr.
Broadwater, in which he had de
clared that unless the firm was
allowed to make hfgher profits
the city should take it over.
This speech was viewed by Mr.
Patterson as an ultimatum and a
challenge to Congress. In a state
ment February 29, he declared
“the challenge should be met by
both the United States Congress
and the District Commissioners.”
* The House committee members
during their closed session also
discussed other pending legislation
relating to Capital Transit, Mr.
Macmillan disclosed.
One would call for an investiga
tion by the ICC into all passenger-*
carrying lines in the entire Wash
ington metropolitan area. It
would be directed to determine the
adequacy of service and reason
ableness of fares. No hearings
have been scheduled on these bills.

A 23-year-old salesman has been

terday.
Police also charged Gerald J.

N.W., the salesman, with passing

of Utah, also took issue with Sen- '
ator McCarran’s ruling. He said,
however, there should be “some .
reasonable restriction that wit- ;
nesses cannot come in here and [
insult the Senate.”
This was an apparent refer- :
ence to a 50-page statement read
by Owen Lattimore recently. !
which used strong language in :
criticizing procedures of the
group. Despite Mr. Fairbank’s
critical words. Senator Smith said
his statement “does not seem to
be quite the flavor of the Latti- [
more statement.”
Mr. Lattimore, John Hopkins
University professor and another
IPR trustee, will return Friday
for his eleventh day of testimony
on charges made against him.
Denotinces Miss Bentley.
In defense of his loyalty Mr.
Fairbank accused Elizabeth Bent- ,
ley, acknowledged former Red
spy, of using “a distorted half- j
truth” about him in testimony
last August. Miss Bentley had
testified that Mr. Fairbank car
ried a letter in 1943 from Mme.
Sun Yat-Sen in China to the
China Aid Council in this coun
try. Miss Bentley had called
Mme. Sun Yat-sen. a ester of
Mme. Chank Kai-shek, a "top
Chinese Communist” and termed
the council “ a spy ring.”
Mr. Fairbank said it was true
that he carried such a letter, but
denied that at that time Mme.
Sun was considered a Communist
or that the council was a spy ring.
Senator Ferguson suggested that
Miss Bentley sis a former spy her
self, “majr hgve been in a better
position to know whether Mme.
Sun was a Communist or not.”
Mr. Fairbank retorted:
"I have a low opinion of spies.
Miss Bentley, having been a spy,
might not been reliable in
her thought* processes.”
Cites Many Statements.
The 44-year-old professor cited
a large number of statements from
persons fn China a decade ago,
expressing view that Mme. Sun
at that time was not believed to
be a Communist.
On the question of the China
Aid Council,- Senator Ferguson
brought out that Mildred Price,
former Council director, had re
fused to testify as to whether she
was a Communist on grounds of
possible self-incrimination.
At different times, Mr. Fairbank
conceded that Miss Price’s refusal
might indicate a “possible past
connection*’ with communism and
that there was “some attempt (by
Communists) at infiltration.” But
he denied that the council was a
spy ring.
The professor, whose name was
used by the council, said its suc
cessor, the China Welfare Appeal,
“is a front organization, and for
that reason I have had nothing to
do with it.”

Grand Jury Action
Considered in Death
Os Little Girl in Fire
The United States Attorney’s
office today was considering
whether to seek grand jury ac
tion in the death of a baby girl
in a fire set by her father while
he was of “unsound mind.”
A coroner’s jury yesterday held
the father, Billy Whitley Sturdi
vant, 30. responsible for the death
of the giri. Linda Bturdivant, 2.
But the jury failed to hold him
for legal action because of the
temporary insanity finding of a
District alienist and the Mental
Health Commission. >
The jury was told Bturdivant,
who is colored, set lire to some
paper in his home while suffer
ing from delirium tremens, a
mental disorder associated with
alcohol. The baby was- burned
to death. Sturdivant testified he -
was trying to destroy “bugs.”
Coroner A. Magruder Mac-
Donald said SturdiVant promised
to attend the District’s alcoholic
clinic.
‘Police said they did not Intend
to press charges. Dr. MacDonald
said that because of the medical
finding, a conviction appeared
doubtful.

went after me like a dog and you
know he did.”
Raping on the table. Senator
Hoey said the Senators should
ask relevant questions and the
witness should give relevant an
swers.
When Senator Hoey ruled Mr.
Morris could reply to Senator
McCarthy’s statements, Mr. Mor
ris said to the chairman:
“I’ll always remember you as
an archangel of deceny.”
Mr. Morris then asked Senator
McCarthy: “Why don’t you ask
Questions as Senator Hoey would?
Be a gentleman like the chair
man.”
The wrangling between |he two
flared up at several other? points
in thp questioning. Mr. 1 Morris
protested that a series of questions
fired at him by the Wisconsin Sen
ator was an attempt to “wear me
down like they did to Cardinal
Mindzenty.” He also described the
questioning as “mental brutality”
and accused Senator McCarthy of
having “cooked up these questions
all night.”
Clarifies Casey Statement.
At the outset of today’s hear
ings, Mr. Morris said he wanted
to clear up an incorrect impres
sion he might have given yester
day about former Repersentative
Joseph Casey, Democrat, of Mas
sachusetts, now practicing law
here. Mr. Casey and several
prominent associates, including
the late Secretary of State Ed
ward R. Stettinius, jr., bought
eight;; surplus tankers from the
■ old Maritime Commission in 1947.
They netted profits more than
$3 million on their original in
■ vestment of only $101,909. Three
of the eight tankers acquired- by
the Casey group were sold to the
. United Tanjcer Corp. at $450,000
, profit. _ ; V,
Mr. xljjiyrfs yesterday denounced
the lawMihder which the reaping
of such profits was possible. He
1 told the subcommittiee today he
l heard Hist night that Mr. Casey
, was “greatly upset” because of
. that statement. He said he tele
• phoned Mr. Casey and assured
him he intended no personal criti
cism. But he explained to the
subcommittee that he stood by his
original statement except that he
wished to retract the word “grab
bing” which he had applied to
the profit taking.
Tax-Savings Survey.
Senator Nixon, Republican, of
Califbmia, asked that the Internal
Revenue Bureau look into tax sav
ings amounting to $350,000 in the
transaction which sent the three
tankers from the Casey group to
the United Tanker Corp.
Mr. Morris said he had had
nothing to do with the preparation
of tax returns
The subcommittee also ques
tioned him about a $847,000 fine
imposed by the Federal Com
munciations Commission on four
United Tanker vessels last year
for using foreigners as radio
operators. FCC had shown the
fine eventually was cut to SB,OOO.
Mr. Morris explained that he
personally visited ’FCC and, at
the suggestion of Commissioner
Frieda Hennock, conferred with
several attorneys in the agehey.
He declared that there was no
I influence or favoritism in con
| nection with the Commission’s
! final decision to reduce the fine.
