Costello Still
Balks Crime
Racketeer Linked
With Tammany
NEW YORK - ()-Racketeer
Frank Costello, stubborn from
first to last, refused again yester-
nday to tell Senatehcrime probers
"how much money he's worth.
He first balked at the question
last Tuesday, the first day he was
a witness before the all-star open
hearings of the Senate Crime In-
vestigation Committee.
AND YESTERDAY -- the next
to last day-he refused again in
just about the same hoarse man-
ner, saying:
"I refuse to answer on consti-
tutional grounds."
His attorney was allowed. to
argue in a written brief due by
Monday that Costello has the
right to refuse. If the argument
fails, the big-time racketeer faces
a contempt citation by the Sen-
COSTELLO came back to the
hearing after the committee spent
most of the day listening to Wil-
liam O'Dwyer, former mayor of
New York. O'Dwyer admitted
knpwing Costello and called the
racketeer a sinister influence on
~Tammany Hall.
O'Dwyer, in his testimony,
added mobster, Joe Adonis to
his list of acquaintances around
town, but said they met cas-
ally only once.
Costello seemed more relaxed as
he went before the committee for
the sixth day in a row. He man-'
aged an occasional laugh, in con-
trast to his solemn, nervous man-
ner last week when he once got up
and walked out on the committee.
His seemingly naive answers to
some questions convulsed the
packed hearing room more than
once until the standing-room-only
crowd was gaveled to silence and
warned to be quiet.
Costello, enlarging on his influ-
ence in Tammany Hall, conceded
he knew 14 Tammany leaders. The
Democratic Manhattan organiza-I
tion is made up of 42 district lead-
ers, plus 42 co-leaders.

Labor Asks New
Defense Poicy
Mobilization, Wage Programs'
Criticized at Two Union Rallies
WASHINGTON-(AP-Leaders of most of the nation's labor un-
ions heaped criticism on the mobilization program yesterday, said it
was "going on the rocks" and called for a new deal.
Local and statewide leaders of the AFL, CIO, machinists, and
non-operating railroad unions met at two separate rallies at which
the wage stabilization program and many other phases of the govern-
ment's defense planning were assailed.
THE MEETINGS were called by the United Labor Policy Com-
mittee, composed of about 15,000,000 organized workers in nearly all

The forces probed north of Seoul after withdrawing Reds but
bumped into stiff rear guard resistance in central Korea. Elements
of China's Third Field Army entered the front line to screen the en-

Harrison said the mobilization

for 20 years, and in that time
under present policies he said,
workers "will certainly be a regi-

"We've talked to Wilson, but you
might as well talk to a stone wall,"
Meany said.
But he added, "This is more
than a fight with Wilson; it is
also a fight with Congress."
He told the local labor leaders:
"Your job is to go back and let
the people know this is not just
a fight over wages either.
Works Committee
Members of the, city council's
public works committee have given
their approval to a $448,795 street
improvement project.
Outlining the program, Mayor
William E. Brown, Jr., said the
undertaking will be covered by a
special bond issue,which can be
paid off in 12 to 15 years.
The program wil probably be
brought before the council for ap-
proval at their next meeting.

Such a project is the textbook

countries of Asia and Europe.
"Instead of sending textbooks,
WSSF sent mimeograph ma-
chines to the students," he said.
"We figured that a text can be
made for 25 cents this way."
The agency also finances tuber-
culksis sanitariums, and provides
clothing, food and shelter for pen-
niless students.
"We won't use social pressures,
such as tags, to get anyone to con-

want only to educate the students

,AEC .Hints
A tEniwetok
Atom Tests
WASHINGTON -() - A new
series of atomic bomb blasts is
under way at the Eniwetok prov-
ing grounds in the Pacific, the
Atomic Energy Commission hinted
It referred to a "test" program
of a "major" character and said
one aim is to gather information
which will help architects design
buildingsto stand up better under
atomic blasts.
* * *
THE PROJECT at the remote
Pacific atoll has been nicknamed
"Operation Greenhouse." .
The commission gave no hint
as to what type, or types, of
atomic weapons were involved.
Presumably, though, they would
be models substantially improved
as compared with those tested in
the first series of Eniwetok trials
in the spring of 1948. The three
bombs tested then were described
as "improved" over their prede-
cessors. Presumably the tests
would involve something differ-
ent from the weapons tested re-
cently at Las Vegas-that is, dif-
ferent in explosive capabilities, or
in proposed use.
It is even conceivable that a
trial explosion of the proposed
hydrogen bomb might be attempt-
ed, just to see what headway has
been made of the full-scale studies
which have been underway for
more than a year now.
