VOL. LVIII, No. 25
Callahan Act
Suspended by
Black Ruling
Orders Hearing
On Petitions
By The Associated Press
LANSING, Oct. 20 - Attorney
General Eugene F. Black today
ruled the Callahan "foreign
agents" act had been suspended
" by referendum petitions as the
state board canvassers ordered a
public hearing on charges of fraud
hurled at petition circulators.
The board said it would begin a
"routine" check of the sufficiency
of the 100,000 petitions filed, and
would conduct a hearing Feb. 4 at
which time evidence of fraud in
their circulation would be heard.
Secretary of State Fred M. Al-
ger, Jr., chairman, said the board
had no intention of stalling the
certification of the referendum,
but desired to avoid undue ex-
pense and effort in checking evi-
dence of fraud if the special ses-
sion of the legislature in Janu-
ary intends to amend the Calla-
han act. The referendum need not
be certified until next fall.
'Sigler May Offer Amendments
Governor Sigler has indicated
he will recommend amendments,
and Black ruled that if the Legis-
lature changes the law the refer-
endum petitions will be invali-
Floyd McGriff, publisher of sev-
eral Wayne County weeklies,
asked the board to check the ref-
erendum petitions carefully. He
alleged that "thousands" of sign-
ers were not citizens, that other
"thousands" were not registered
voters, that other "thousands"
were improperly signed and that
a "large percentage" were not told
the purpose of the petitions.
No Money For Enforcement
Black already has declined to
enforce the Callahan Act on the
grounds the Llgislature did not
give them enough money.
The Act requires the registra-
tion of any person or agency di-
rectly. or indirectly influenced by,
directed of by serving the purposes
of a foreign power.
Vishiusky Puts,
Greek. Blame
On Britam, U.S.
NEW YORK, Oct. 20 - 0) -
Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister
Andrei Y. Vishinsky charged once
more today that the United States
and Britain-and not Russia's
Balkan satellites-were responsi-
ble for the disturbing Greek situ-
He made two major demands:
1. That the Assembly reverse
the decision of its 57-nation politi-
cal committee to create an Ameri-
can-sponsored UN "watchdog"
commission to assist in solving
the Greek-Balkan problem.
2. That the Assembly also re-
verse another decision in which
the political committee rejected
Russia's demands for withdrawal
of foreign troops and advisory
military personnel from Greece.
Blames British
Vishinsky blamed British troops
and American military personnel
for all the present Balkan trouble

and\ said their removal was the
"most important prerequisite" for
the restoration of order and peace
in Greece.
He charged that the U. S. and
Britain "have done their best to
give a thoroughly false interpre-
tation of the Greek question,"
adding the contention that they
had presented this issue to the
United Nations "in an utterly dis-
torting manner."
'A Doll-Theatre Comedy'
Vishinsky described efforts of
the U. S. to place the blame on
Albania, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia
as "a doll-theatre comedy and
badly produced buffonery."
Vishinsky said that instead of
creating a Balkan border commis-
sion, the assembly should set up
a special commission with super-
visory powers to assure that
America's $300,000,000 Greek re-
covery program be used "only in
the interests of the Greek people."

Food Agency
Weighs Merits
Of Fowl, Fish
WASHINGTON Oct. 20-()-
Millions of fowl are gorging on
vital grains and the best thing the
government can do to help Eu-
rope is to abolish "chickenless
Thursday," the nation's poultry
dealers argued today.
If the government would en-
courage, rather than discourage,
the eating of chickens and tur-
keys, 4,250,000 bushels of grain
could be saved weekly, they said.
The National Poultry Producers
Federation, it was learned, car-
ried this argument into a session
with Charles Luckman, Chairman
of the Citizens' Food Committee.
The meeting is expected to con-
tinue tomorrow.
Also at today's meeting, baked
salmon loaf, escalloped potatoes
and acorn squash-cooked togeth-
er in the same oven-were sug-
gested by the Citizens Food Com-
mittee today for "meatless Tues-
It gave this recipe for the Sal-
mon Loaf:
1 one-pound can salmon (or 2
cups any flaked, cooked or canned
2 cups soft bread crumbs.
/2 cup milk.
1 egg, well beaten.
1 teaspoon salt.
Dash of pepper.
2 tablespoons melted fat.
Drain salmon, reserving liquid.
Remove skin and bone and flake
the fish. Turn into greased loaf

Big Toe .Has I
Heat Control
YOSEMITE Calif., Oct. 20-(PA)
-The human body contains a re-
markable thermostat which cas-
ually utilizes the big toe for an
indicator, Dr. L. H. Newburgh,
professor of clinical investigation
at the University of Michigan
Medical School, reported today.
When the air temperature drops
to a certain point this thermostat
begins to shut off the bodily heat
going to the arms and legs.
This explains why a person's
toes and fingers often are the first
to feel the cold. R also follows the
logic of the householder who
starts closing bedroom doors when
the furnace lags.

Reds Hit by
Sam Wood
Filmland Bosses
Testify in Probe
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON Oct. 20-Holly-
woodACommunists raised $87,000
for their cause at a recent meet-
ing, producer-director Sam Wood
of the movies testified today. He
said actress Katharine Hepburn
appeared at the meeting.
Wood was one of the opening
witnesses as the big congressional
hunt for Red tinges in Hollywood
got under way.
Another one, Jack L. Warner,
vice president of Warner Brothers,
testified that people with "un-
American leanings" have bored
into Hollywood.
But a hearing by the House
Committee on "Un-American Ac-
tivities also turned up testimony
1. Unrelaxed vigilance is be-
ing maintained to keep subver-
sive influences out of movies.
2. "Of course" some war time
films were "friendly" to Russia
but the White House wasn't re-
sponsible for that. Louis B.
Mayer, production chief of
Mero - Goldwyn - Mayer, made
this statement.
Wood was positive there defi-
nitely are Communists among
screen writers. He called them
"the most dangerous group in the
movie industry."
Warner and Mayer, refraining
from listing anyone as Commu-
nists, both spoke of "Un-Ameri-
can" influences in Hollywood.
And Warner said he wanted to
deny "vehemently" that the gov-
ernment cooperated in the pro-
duction by his company of "Mis-
sion to Moscow."
Warner, after he told of taking
out of scripts anything Un-
American that writers put in-
he listed various writers by
name-was questioned about
"Mission to Moscow."
This was based on a book by Jo-
seph E. Davies who was sent to
Russia by the late President
Committee Investigator Robert
E. Stripling said the movie "por-
trayed Russia in an entirely dif-
ferent light than it actually was."
"I don't know whether you can
prove that or I can prove that,"
Warner replied a bit sharply.
Stripling-"Would you say it
was a propaganda picture?"
Warner-"I've never been in
Russia. How can I tell you?"
Stripling-"Don't you think you
were on dangerous grounds?"
Warner-"No, we vweren't ion
dangerous grounds. We made the
film to aid the war effort. As far
as I'm concerned I considered it
true as portrayed in the Davies'
To a question whether anyone
in the White House got in touch
with him about making "Mis-
sion to Moscow," Warner replied
"not directly."
Mayer testified later that "Song
of Russia" was made when Rus-
sia was in a "desperate situation"
and "it was made to be friendly."

boredom with his vocation and a
deep interest in music of which
he knew little at the time.
Successful In Europe

grew rapidly until he was invited
by Leopold Stowkowski to conduct
in the United States.
Since then he has appeared with,
the Philadelphia Opera Company,
the Rochester Philharmonic, the
Detroit Symphony and the Los
Angeles Philharmonic, which he
directed for several years.

Give Support
To Anti-Soviet
National GoVernment
May Reflect Results
By The Associated Press
PARIS, Oct. 20-Gen. Charles
De Gaulle emerged today as the
major political leader in France
supporting the views of the West-
ern Democracies against the
Soviet Union as his followers
claimed a sweeping victory in
Sunday's municipal elections.
There were indications that the
results would be reflected in the
non - Communist go v er n men t
headed by Socialist Premier Paul
De Gaulle remained silent,
but a long-time follower, Andre
Malraux, noted author and for-
mer cabinet minister, declared
that the General would' take
power only after a referendum
'demonstrating his support and
in no case would he try to seize
authority by force.
Less than 20 per cent of the
votes cast in the election were
counted, but the candidates of De-
Gaulle's new rally of the French
people (RPF) were leading in all
portions of the nation. Newspa-
pers of practically all political
shades viewed De Gaulle as the
leader of the largest political
force in the country.
Mouinting returns gave the
RPF 38.4 per cent of the vote,
the Communists 30.65 per cent,
the Socialists 19.5, the fading
Popular Republican Movement
(MRP) 9.1 and various other
parties 2.35.
On the basis of these results it
appeared that the Communists
were holding their own in most
cases and the RPF had drawn

ticularly from the largely Catholic
However, his party may demand
and obtain seats in Ramadier's
cabinet. There are already some
De Qaulists in the assembly and
any number of the rest can repre-
sent the RPF and be listed as such
merely by notifying the assembly
president to that effect.
It was believed highly improb-
able that any sufficient number of
deputies would desert their pres-
ent parties to give De Gaulle a
majority. Actually most of the
deputies are his political oppon-
