3 Youths and Girl
Charged After Wild
Chase of Stolen Car
Three unchivalrous George
town youths and an 18-year-old
girl riding in a stolen car were
caught after a short but fast
chase on Sixteenth street N.W.
early today, police reported.
Police spotted the auto at Six
teenth and R streets N.W. about
3 am. Because of its speed,
they gave chase.
It was a dull night for police
men everywhere, and other
cruiser men, learning of the
chase, converged on the area.
Police said the auto . went
through two red lights and three
blocks away, at Sixteenth and U
streets N.W., crashed into a
streetcar loading platform, spun
around and struck two taxicabs
which had come to a halt when
their drivers saw the speeding
car careening toward them.
The three boys leaped out and
ran. abandoning the girl.
Police arrested her, and at
headquarters she was identified
as Gail Patricia Kinsey, 18, of
the 3500 block of T street N.W.
Xhe boys didn’t get far—there
were too many policemen in the
area. Taken into custody were
two 17-year-old youths and a
16- youth. Owe of the
17- identified as the
driver, was charged with un
authorized use of an auto, run
ning through two red lights,
leaving the scene of an accident
and driving without a D. C. per
The other boys were charged
with unauthorized use of an au
tomobile. A charge of taking
property without right was drop
ped when the girl appeared in
Municipal Court today. The
United States attorneys office
requested dropping the charge
because the attorney did not feel
there was any evidence to sup
port it.
The car was registered to
Marshall Hornblower of 4800 U
street N.W., who didn’t know it
was stolen until police told him
it had been recovered. (
Bloody Clothing
Sent for Analysis
Bloodstained clothing, believed
the property of the Navy airman
charged with the rape-murder of
a WAVE last week end, has been
sent to Baltimore for analysis
and blood typing.
Searchers recovered the cloth
ing yesterday which Carl Willis
Strickland, 21, admits he threw
iway early Saturday while driv
ing from the Patuxent Naval Air
Station to his home in Rocky
Mount. N. C. Sheriff Willard
Long of St. Marys County said a
shirt, pair of trousers, an under
shirt, pair of shorts and a pair
of socks were found in a wooded
area off a road running from St.
Marys to Charles County.
The sheriff said the search is
continuing for two blankets
which Strickland also says he
threw away.
The battered body of Miss
Irene Marion Conole, 26. was
half submerged on the beach
near Point Lookout Saturday
morning. Medical testimony said
the cause of death was drowning
but the young woman also had
been beaten and criminally as
Strickland, who insists he is
innocent, admits he visited tav
erns with Miss Conole Friday
night. But he maintains he left
her, and a hitchhiker picked up
at her suggestion, on the Chesa
peake Bay beach. After he drove
away, the airman has told police,
he discovered her handbag in his
car and returned to the beach.
Strickland said he found only
two bloodstained blankets, which
he picked up, getting blood on
his clothing as he did so.

President's News Conference
Puts Accent on Legislation
(Continued From First Page.)
he has submitted to Congress.
He wants to devote all his at
tention to talking about that,
he said.
In his statement about ad
ministration accomplishments in
dealing with subversives, in
which direct quotation was per
mitted, the President empha
-1 sized that the job being done
i by appropriate Federal agencies
i is carried out "quietly and re
lentlessly ” He added that
“those who best know its ef
fectiveness are the Communists
, themselves.”
Latest Firures.
Summarizing the latest figures
received from the Justice De
partment, Gen. Eisenhower said
in the 16 month his adminis
tration has been in office, the
Attorney General, working with
the Federal Bureau of Investi
gation and the Immigration and
Naturalization Service, has:
1. Arrested seven Connecticut
leaders of the Communist Party
j last week end. ,
2. Convicted 41 Communist
Party leaders in various cities.
3. Indicted 20 additional Com
munist leaders in Philadelphia
and Cleveland.
4. Added 62 organizations to
the Justice Department’s list of
subversive groups, making a total
of 255.
5. Secured conviction of one
person for treason; two for
espionage; eight for making false
statements to the Government
and three for perjury.
6. Deported 84 alien subver
7. Ordered deportation of 268
persons with records of sub
versive activity or affiliation.
8. Started denaturalization
proceedings against 24 natural
ized citizens charged with being
9. Barred entry into this coun
try of 127 subversive aliens, who
had arrived at American ports.
Mentions Legislation.
After discussing those accom
: plishments, the President turned
to his legislative program. He
mentioned his proposals for
flexible farm price supports, tax
refor, promotion of foreign trade
and housing, health and social
security measures. This program,
he said, comprehends major
needs of the country within the
responsibility of the Federal
Declaring that positive action
in that direction is the thing to
which he is going to give his
exclusive attention, he said he is
going to talk to everybody he
can about it because he believes
the program is a must require
ment for the United States.
I Gen. Eisenhower explained he
i did not mean that every detail
I and the timing of action was a
! must in his View, saying that the
■ democratic process requires cpm
i position of differences.
The President dealt with few
specific details of his program
in the news conference discus
sion. But he did serve notice
that he will not compromise on
the principles of his flexible
farm price support proposals.
And he said he still believes the
voting age should be lowered.
He was asked about a state
ment made by Chairman Hope
of the House Agriculture Com
mittee after .a recent White
House visit that some compro
mise on the administration's
farm program seemed inevitable.
Basic Purpose of Program.
Gen. Eisenhower said he had
no idea what Mr. Hope was
speaking of. He added he always
I had insisted that the basic pur
| pose of any farm program must
be to prevent violent fluctuations
in farm prices, remarking that
I he was not insisting on the pre
cise details of the proposals he
i had submitted to Congress.
But the President emphasized
that he is prepared to stand up
and fight for the principles of
his farm program proposals, and
is not prepared to compromise
j on those principles.
He told a questioner he had not
heard of any such idea as a re
port that the Senate rejected a
proposed amendment to lower
the voting age to 18 years be
cause the Republican leadership
did not intend for it to pass.
| Gen. Eisenhower said he still
believes that young men who
have to fight wars should have
some voice in their Government.

vestigations a desirable p&rt of
his legislative program, the
President said he had not
thought about it in those terms
and would not want to foreclose
the possibility of making recom
mendations. But he says he feels
that this matter is the deep
responsibility of the legislators
Shanley Remarks Brought Up.
He laughed when a reporter
asked if he agreed with a recent
statement by his counsel, Ber
nard Shanley, that Democrats
in Congress were trying to ride
on his eoattails and at the sams
time block t his legislative pro
Gen. Eisenhower said the busi
ness of riding on someone else’s
coattails could be dangerous be
cause the rider might not know
where the coattails were going.
Then, more seriously, he said
if any one wants to support his
legislative program and that
amounts to riding on his coat
tails, he can climb right on.
Asked about a published charge
that his administration had
shown little initiative in fight
ing depression, the President
said every one is entitled to
express his opinions,, .but chal
lenged his questioner to get the
administration's side of the story
in detail from the chief of his
Council of Economic Advisors,
Dr. Arthur F. Burns.
He said Dr. Burns could tell
the reporter about measures that
have been adopted, how they
work, and what the administra
tion is prepared to do.
The President was asked If
he had in mind any particular
plans for a speaking tour to
carry to the public his campaign
for action on his legislative pro
gram in general. He said no,
but he did have a number of
tentative engagements for speak
ing at various places and that
every time he appears in public
from now on he will have just

* Status of Violators.
Late in April, the Commis
sioners decided to start Munici
pal Court action against viola
tors of regulations which had
then been on the books for 13
months. Assistant Corporation
Counsel Clark King began hold
ing hearings at the rate of 15 a
day, with these results:
Not a single case has yet gone
to court.
Because several agenoies are
involved in these inspections at
least three have to be on hand
for the hearings—thus slowing
the inspection program.
Property owners* are being
told by Mr. King how to get
around the tenement regulations
either by reducing the number
of tenants or applying, instead,
for licenses as operators of
rooming houses. Asked why he
was giving such advice. Mr.
King said the big owners al
ready know it and the small
owners shouldn’t be penalized
for lack of legal advice. So far,
more than 140 property owners
have applied for cancelation of
their tenement license requests
after notices of disapproval.
Property Owners Confused.
The hearings show that small
property owners, particularly,
come before Mr. King without
the foggiest notion of what
they’re supposed to do to correct
defects cited by the Health De
partment. The notices of dis
approval cite the section of the
code they violate by number and
suggest that in order to avoid
undue expense they furnish
“plans, drawn to scale, indicat
ing how you intend to divide
the subject premises into a ten
ement house which will comply
with all the requirements of the
Tenement and Tenement House
Regulations. City 'officials con

outcome of the struggle for con
