Now Tense
Thai Premier Says
Red Troops Massing
BANGKOK (R) -- Delegates to
the Southeast Asia defense trea-
ty conference gathered today in
an atmosphere made tense by the
Thai Premier's report that Com-
munist "Free Thai" forces are
massing close to Thailand's bor-
Thai officials also expressed
concern lest Communists among
refugees in Laos on Thailand's
northeast border stir up disturb-
4 ances during the three-day con-
ference, opening tomorrow.
Red China's Peiping radio
' blasted away at the Bangkok con-
ference. A broadcast heard in To-
kyo called it a United States plot
"to get Asians to do the dying
for United States aggression inI
"Plain Speaking"
Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles, before his plane left Ma-
nila for Bangkok, said in a state-
ment the time was ripe for "plain
speaking" to prevent' "a reckless
Communist miscalculation which
could endanger the lives of many."
At- a news conference yesterday.
Premier Pibulsonggram said 20,-
000 Communist "Free Thai" troop
were in Red China's Yunnan
Province poised for a jumpoff.
North of Thailand
Yunnan's border is scarcely 100
r miles north of Thailand. It is sep-
arated by a segment of the Indo-
chinese state of Laos dominated
by the Communists.
"If we don't do anything about
it, Communismiwill move across
the Mekong River and dominate
all of Southeast Asia," the Pre-
'mier said. He said Thailand's
troops could take care of the "Free
Thai" forces but would need 'help
if Red China intervened.
Strong Organization
The Premier favored setting up
a strong organization dedicated to
"peace in this part of the world."
Foreign Secretary Carlos P. L.
Garcia of the Philippines said he
would propose a common air force
for collective defense by the mem-
ber nations-the United States,
United Kingdom, France, New
Zealand, Australia, the Philip-
pines, Thailandand Pakistan.

Witness Calls'
Bentley Liar
Turnabout witness Harvey Ma-
tusow, who calls himself a liar,
testified yesterday he believes
Elizabeth Bentley also gave false
testimony about Communist activ-
ities to congressional investigators.
Miss Bentley's name was brought
up in the course of a day in which
he testified under oath that he
lied when he said Senator Henry
N. Jackson (D-Wash.) was pro-
Communist and Senator Mike
Mansfield (D-Mont.) was "a tool
of the Communist party."
Matusow, self - described ex-
Communist and FBI informer who
has attacked the patriotism of
many, ranging from senators and*
churchmen to Communist party
leaders, was before the Senate In-
ternal Security subcommittee.
Miss Bentley has been a key
government witness in investiga-
tions and trials involving charges
of Soviet-directed espionage in the
United States.

"In addition to adding another

creasing exchange of books and
movies, there might be possibility
of exchange of professors," Simon1
Another SL member commented
SGC would have enough money to

With the Berlin Philharmonic
scheduled to arrive Thursday in
New York for their first North
American tour in 40 years, pro-
tests have been made charging
that some of the orchestra mem-
bers are former Nazis.
A petition signed by 750 mem-
bers of a New York Musician's
.Union asked its board of directors
to prevent the Orchestra's sched-
uled appearances in New York's
Carnegie Hall in March and April.
It reads in part: "We musicians

ance of the Nazi-led and Nazi-
managed Berlin Philharmonic Or-
chestra. The conductor, Herbert

are, we must orove that music

Scheduled to begin their tour
Sunday in Washington, D.C. the
group plans a local concert March

Eaddy Nets 15
A basket by Don Eaddy, who hit
15 points, two fouls each by Jim
Shearon and Kramer, and two
more baskets by the sharp-shoot-
ing Kramer, were matched only by
a two pointer for Kelley. This put
Michigan ahead by a two point
margin with 2:04 to play.
Their lead was short-lived, how-
ever, when Kelley sunk a lay up
shot and was fouled in the act of
shooting. He made his free throw,
and put the Buckeyes out in front
by one. After Michigan failed to
score, Ohio State froze the ball
until only 57 seconds remained. At
this point, Eaddy, in his effort to
steal the ball fouled guard Chuck

straight free throws, sank two and

VWould Grant
$20 Reduction
To Everyone
Not in Public Interest
Conplains Secretary
Ways and Means Committee, over,
the strong protests of Secretary
of the Treasury George Humph-
rey, yesterday voted in favor of a
$20 income tax cut for everybody.
Secretary Humphrey accused
Democratic members of the com-
mittee of working "completely
contrary to the public interest"
in pushing the bill to gite each
taxpayer a $20 reduction on in-
come earned after next Jan. 1,
plus $20 for each dependent, in
eluding his spouse.
But the Democratic-ruled com-
mittee was reported to have voted
15-10 for the cut. Democratic lead-
ers planned to send the bill to the
House floor for debate on Thurs-
Postpone Corporate Reductions
At its closed-door session, the
committee also was reported to
have approved by topheavy mar-
gins President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower's request to postpone for
one year a reduction of about three
billion dollars in corporate income
and excise taxes.
Members said they decided to
wait until today to take final
action on a composite bill in-
corporating all the provisions.
Secretary Humphrey, in a
statement handed out to reporters
after his session. with the corn-
mittee, said the proposed 2,300,-
000,000 cut would "just about wipe
out" the progress the Eisenhower
Administration is making toward
a balanced budget,
Deficit Financing
"This move is playing fast and
loose with the welfare of 160 mil-
lion Americans by deliberately in-
creasing deficit financing-with
all its inflationary dangers-in-
stead of continuing the Adminis-
tration's responsible financial
management which has been so
beneficial for all Americans during
the past two years," the Treasury
chief said.
He added that "this maneuver
is completely contrary to the pub-
lic interest, being made as a Sur-
prise in connection with the prop-
er -action proposed by the Admin-
istration for the desirable exten-
sion of the corporate tax rate and
certain excise taxes which other-
wise would be reduced.
Senate ToVote
On Pay Hike
late yesterday agreed to vote to-
morrow on a proposed 50 per cent
pay hike for members of Con-
Sen. Wayne Morse (D-Ore)
thereupon cut short a speech he
had been making against the
Democratic a n d Republican
leaders, who support the pay in-
crease measure, huddled and fi-
nally came up with an agreement
to start voting on the bill tomor-
row, with a 30-minute debate lim-
it on amendments and one hour on
final passage, to be divided equal-
ly between those for and against
the measure.
The Senate has before it a bill
to boost salaries of members of
Congress from $15,000 to $22,500 a
year. The House already has voted
an increase to $25,00. Senators

and representatives now get a ba-
sic salary of $12,500 a year, an
expense allowance of $2,500 for
which they do not have to ac-
count, and $3,000 of their income is
tax-free. This $3,000 exemption
would be retained in the House

Deplores Comic Book Horror, Crime

i r 1

Heh! heh! Sleep well, kiddies!
In a cheery children's "funny" book, the saka of golden-haired
little Lucy, self-made orphan, is told. Lucy shoots her drunken fa-
ther and manages to have her unfaithful mother electrocuted. Lucy
then fulfills her desire to live with kind old Aunt Katie.
In its first report on several months of hearings, the special
Senate subcommittee on juvenile delinquency stated that this was
a typical plot from a horror comic book read by American children.
Although the report rejected the idea of government censor-
ship of comic books; it demanded that publishers, and to a lesser
extent distributors, clean up crime and horror comics.
Removed Locally
Locally, however, a drug-store manager stated that his store
removed horror comics from its newsstands over a dear ago because
of local pressure groups.
