NEW YORK-(3)-Two Ameri-
can ships were attacked from the
air today at the Communist-held
north China port of Tsingtao.
Officials in Washington said
.they assumed the attacking bom-
ber was a Chinese Nationalist
plane and that the Nationalists
were attempting to extend their
blockade of Red-controlled ports.

its 8,000-ton freighter Pioneer
Dale was bombed and strafed
as it approached Tsingtao. A
message from the captain said
one of the 50 crew members was
injured slightly.
In Washington, the State De-
partment said the master of the
8,192-ton Isbrandtsen ship Flying
Clipper reported his vessel was at-
tacked while anchored in Tsingtao
t harbor.
DETAILS about the Flying Clip-
per were not immediately avail-
able. Officials of the Isbrandtsen
Company, whose ships previously
have been shelled off Shanghai,
could not be reached.
An official of U.S. Lines said
the master of the Pioneer Dale,
JamesKnowlton, cabled from
Tsingtao :
"Attacked by bomber, one bomb
dropped six lengths astern this
vessel while approaching break-
water. Ship badly strafed. One
slight casualty. Now proceeding
seawards awaiting orders."

LONDON-'P)--Labor's majority
in the House of Commons was

Minister Attlee was reported ready
to suspend his big program of pub-
lic ownership of industry in the
interests of survival.
The British Press Association's
authoritative lobby correspondent
said King George's speech from
the throne next Monday - the
speech is written by the govern-
ment - would not even mention
the issue of nationalization of in-

IF THE REPORT is true that
Attlee has shelved his controver-
sial program to nationalize more
industry, it could mean there are
prospects of an unspoken political
truce-the Communist newspaper
Daily Worker called it a "backdoor
coalition" - for the next few
Virtually the entire press was
agreed, however, that this would
last only long enough to adopt
the annual budget in April and
transact some other necessary
government business.
Nearly all forecasts were that
by June, or not later than fall,
another election will be necessary.
Completed returns today from
three remote districts in Scotland
produced two Conservative and
one Liberal victories.
If Labor had won a convincing
margin, it had planned to push
through nationalization of sugar,
cement, water works, meat distri-
bution and warehousing, and also
possibly the chemical and ship-
building industries.

Legation Cut Demand

By The Associated Press
The United Stattes followed up
its break in diplomatic relations'
with Communist Bulgaria yester-
day by banning all travel of pri-
vate American citizens to that.
At the same time, the State De-1
partment fired another burst of
criticism at the Hungarian gov-
ernment for demanding the United1
States cut the size of its legation
staff in -Budapest.
Government officials said pri-
vately there is little the Unitedl
States can do but comply with the
Hungarian demand. They indicat-
ed they are studying the possibilitys
of retaliating by a similar move
against the Bulgarian legation

MEANWHILE, the Hungarian
demand that Britain reduce its
diplomatic staff in Budapest, as a
result of the Robert Vogeler spy
trial, was rejected.
Further, Bulgaria's Commun-
ist rulers are terrified of losing1
their power and are putting the
country to a perpetual purge, aC
source familiar with Bulgarian
conditions reported yesterday.

Scottish debaters agreed that the
standards of liberty for the people
had not been lowered under the
Labor government.
The liberaiist's aim is for the
development of the individual,
Low continued.
Speaking for the negative side,
Daniels remarked that "what is
known in America as free enter-
prise and capitalism is really a
welfare state." He noted that such
arrangements as the government
assuming the $cost of higher edu-
cation in the GI Bill is actualll a
manifestation of the welfare stale.

The news was called "in direct

Parker of 2101 Geddes Rd.
Gen. Gray met with residents of
the area on Oct. 6, 1949, at the
Parker home. According to Mrs.
Parker, Gen. Gray told the group
that the proposed veterans facility
"would be a general hospital and
there would be no psychiatric
cases here."
He reportedly said at the meet-
ing that "originally the hospital
was to have been for the treat-
ment of psychiatric cases."
Mrs. Parker said that at the
time she asked Gen. Gray if "he
didn't mean a TB hospital." The
visiting VA official declared that
he meant a psychiatric hospital,
not a TB hospital, she said.
