CHOU AT ASIAN-AFRICAN CONFERENCE Bandung —Red China Premier

start of the week-long Asian-Afncan Conference.—AP Wirephoto by radio from
Singapore.
BANDUNG
Continued From First Page
Minister Mohammed AJi rallied
at the conference plenary ses
sion this morning to the anti-
Red banner raised yesterday by
Iraqui Foreign Minister Fadhil
Jamali.
Refrain From Applause
Both Mr. Chou and Indian
Prime Minister Nehru noticeably
refrained from joining in the
applause—largest so far of the
conference—which followed Gen.
Romulos speech. Mr. Nehru
had hoped the conference would
avoid the most controversial
aspects of the East-West conflict.
The Philippine delegation chief
warned the delegates “not to
surrender blindly to a new super
barbarism, a new super-im
perialism, a new super-power.”
Gen. Romulo also paid pointed
and specific tribute to the
United States and his nation's
long association with it.
The Pakistan Prime Minister,
whose government receives
United States military aid and
is a member of the Western
bucked Turkish-Pakistani alli
ance, also avoided mentioning
communism by name. But he
warned the Asian and African
nations to “be careful not to
open the door to new and more
insidious forms of imperialism
that masquerade in the guise of
liberation.”
Seeks Harmony
Ceylon's anti- Communist
Prime Minister, Sir John Ko
telawala, meanwhile, launched
an effort to prevent a conference
split over the Communist issue.
Sir John, one of the five “Co
lombo" premiers who called the
conference, arranged a private
meeting tomorrow with Mr.
Chou. Mr. Jamali and the four
other sponsoring government
chiefs. They are Mr. Nehru. Mr.
Ah, U Nu of Burma and Ali Sas
troamidjojo of Indonesia.
The Arab nations continued
their attacks on Israel today,
with Foreign Minister Sayyed
Wahid-Salah of Jordan and Le
banese Prime Minister Sami
Solli terming the creation of the
Jewish state a violation of the
human rights of Palestinian
Arabs who had been driven from
their homes.
Libya's Prime Minister Mus
tafa ben Halim also told the con
ference the Palestine question
was “one of the most pressing
problems before our conference.”

Court Takes Up
Peters Security
Case Today
By the Associated Tress
The Supreme Court takes up
today the question of whether
i the Government can legally fire
an employe on loyalty grounds
while keeping secret his accusers.
Central figure in the case is
Dr. John Punnett Peters, pro
fessor of medicine at Yale Uni
versity. He contends his con
i stitutional rights were violated
by not being allowed to confront
| and cross-examine his accusers.
Dr. Peters was fired in May,
j 1953. as an occasional consultant
ito the United States Public
I Health Service after a three
member hearing panel found a
“reasonable doubt” as to his
loyalty. He denied he had ever
been a Communist and declared
his loyalty to the United States.
Brownell Concerned
Attorney General Brownell has
expressed concern that sources
of information "might well dry
up" if the Government had to
disclose them in loyalty cases.
The Supreme Court was ex
pected to call the Peters case for
argument this afternoon in its
first look in four years at key
procedures of the Federal loyal
ty-security program.
The last time it considered the
matter it divided 4-4 in uphold
! ing the security risk firing of
Dorothy Bailey from the United
States Employment Service.
The court's bnet announce
ment in the Bailey case merely
reported the 4-4 vote and said
Justice Clark. who had been At
torney General when the case
originated, took no part.
The same Washington lawyers
who represented Miss Bailey are
handling the Peters case. Thur
man Arnold, a former Assistant
Attorney General and a former
judge of the United States Court
of Appeals here, is chief counsel.
Right Unquestioned
Dr. Peters' attorneys do not
question the Government's right
to discharge employes “without
a fair hearing" when other than
loyalty grounds are involved.
But In the Peters case, they
argue, the executive depart
ment was not "making an ordi
nary managerial judgment that

was “engaged in making a
formal determination that an
individual is disloyal to the
United States.”
They said in a brief:
“The true issue in this case
is whether the Government m
a quasi-judicial capacity can try
and condemn a citizen as dis
loyal to his country by a foimal
hearing which has ah ti e ap
! pearance of a trial but not its
( substance, specifically the right
| to confront and examine one's
accusers.”
Shun Racism,
Romulo Warns
BANDUNG, Indonesia, April
19 i/P).—Dangers of allowing the
Asian-African conference to be
come an organization of non
white races against the whites
i were pointed out by Carlos P.
Romulo in a speech before the
1 delegates from 29 nations today.
“It is one of our heaviest re
sponsibilities that we of Asia
and Africa have.” said the chief
; delegate ' from the Philippines,
, “not to fall ourselves into the
, racist trap.
“We will do this if we respond
, to the white man’s prejudice
■ against us as nonwhites with
s prejudice against the w hites sim
r ply because they are w-hite. . . .
“There is no more dangerous
or Immoral or absurd idea than
, the idea of any kind of policy
; grouping based on color as such.
• This would, In the deepest sense,
■ mean giving up all human free
dom in our time.”
The loudest ovation of the con
’ ference was accorded Romulo
1 when he finished speaking, but
1 he got no recognition from Red
China’s Premier Chou En-lai
; and India's Prime Minister
Nehru.
“In almost all Western lands.
; and especially in the United
States, an internal struggle
[ against racism and all its mani
: festations has been going on
’ steadily and victoriously,” Gen.
Romulo said.

THE FEDERAL SPOTLIGHT
Aero Advisory Group
Notes 40th Birthday
BY JOSEPH YOUNG
This month one of the Government's most vitally important
—yet comparatively little known agencies—celebrates Us 40th
anniversary
The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics is the
Federal agency entrusted with the responsibility for developing
fundamental scientific aeronautical research in the United States.
Its efforts have greatly benefited commercial aviation as well
as military air development, and
have resulted in the United
States’ being far ahead of any
country in the world in aero
nautics.
With a staff of 7,500 employes
and an annual budget of ssl
million, the NACA does a tre- j
mendous job in helping keep j
America out in front in this aii
powered age. It also has played
a large role in making American
commercial aviation the greatest
in the world.
As is the case with other
Federal research and scientific
agencies, the NACA is having a
lot of difficulties these days at
trading and retaining top-cali
ber personnel The main reason ;
is that private industry generally j
pays more money for these jobs, i
Consequently, NACA not only isj
having a tough time recruiting I
the most outstanding college
students, but is losing some of its
top scientists, engineers, tech
nicians and research men.
Fortunately, however, the
NACA still has a devoted corps
of top-notch employes. NACA
officials say it is a fine tribute to
the devotion, loyalty and pa
triotism of their key personnel
that keeps so many on the job,
despite more attractive offers
from private industry .
The NACA, however, realizes
that family and financial con
siderations often influence an
employe’s final decision. That's
why it is hopeful that the
salaries tor these jobs will be
gradually increased.
During World War 11. the then
Secretary of Navy Frank Knox
had this to say about the Navy’s
decisive victories in the air:
“The Navy's famous fighters— I
the Corsair, Wildcat, and Hell
cat—arc possible only because
they were based on fundamentals
developed by the NACA. All of
them use NACA wing sections,
NACA cooling methods. NACA
high-lift devices. The great sea
victories that have broken Ja
pan's expanding grip in the Paci
fic would not have been possible
without the contributions of the
NACA.”
The NACA is headed by Dr
Hugh L. Dryden, director, an
outstanding Government career
scientist who has been in the
Federal service for 36 years. Dr.
John F. Victory, the NACA’s ex
ecutive secretary, has been there
since 1915 and has done an ex
cellent job.
Strong praise for the NACA
was voiced on the House floor
the other day on the occasion of
its 40th birthday. Among those
extolling the agency were Rep
resentatives Thomas, Democrat,
of Texas, who is chairman of the
House Appropriations subcom
mittee handling its funds; Robe
son, Democrat, of Virginia: Gub
ser, Republican, of California,
and Minshall, Republican, of
Ohio. They all cited the out
standing work being done at
NACA laboratories at Langley
Field. Va., Ames in California
and Lewis in Ohio.
Mr. Minshall declared: “All
America can be proud of the

Chicago Hotel Fire
Kills 1, Injures 6
CHICAGO. April 19 f/P>.—One
man was killed and six persons
including four firemen, were in
jured yesterday in an extra
alarm fire which destroyed a
West Side hotel
The Red Cross said two men
were unaccounted for but fire
men delayed further search of
the ruins because of the danger
of falling debris.
The fire swept through the
four-story Humboldt Paik Hotel
on North avenue and spread to
two other buildings. About 50
guests in the hotel fled into the
street, many escaping down CrC
escapes. The dead man, Roger
Hack, 45, was trapped in his
third-floor room.
Mr. Hack's brother, Arthur,
and George Wyman, were re
ported unaccounted for by Red
Cross workers.
