Red German Police Call Members
As Workers Threaten To March
BERLIN - (P) - The East German Communist police summoned
all its members to duty last night through a "number one alert"
broadcast over the police radio network.
Police mobilization came as the city boiled with reports of a
new workers uprising against the Russian rulers of East Germany.

the June 17 rebellion ignited, have threatened to march again
today to demand release of all their comrades arrested in reprisal.

Committee members said yester-
day a number of American clergy-
men were named by witnesses as
evidence of "extreme importance"
was presented concerning Com-
munist infiltration of the clergy.
Rep. Kit Clardy (R-Mich), act-
ing chairman at the New York
hearings, said the individuals were
American clergymen but did not
otherwise identify them, or state
the exact number.

ASKED WHETHER he would
attack a clergyman if he were
found to be a Communist, Clardy
replied: "I would not, attack him.
I would expose him."
The committee in a prepared
statement said it had received
testimony on how Communists
"planned to and did infiltrate
the ranks of the clergy" in the
The testimony came from Ben-
jamin Gitlow and Joseph Korn-
feder, the committee said.
Gitlow was described as a char-
ter member of the American Com-

Reds and Kornfeder as once an,
"important Communist party func-J
tionary" who had an "intimate,
acquaintance" with Josef Stalin,

New Folk Art
Comic strips of today represent
America's new folk art, Prof. Alan
Gowans of Rutgers University fine
arts department explained yester-
The naivete of Grandma Moses
is an anachronism because is does
not present the culture of the 20th
century, he indicated in a com-
mentary given in conjunction with
the popular visual arts exhibit in
the Museum of Art.
ACCORDING TO Prof. Gowans,
"The essence of folk art is con-
ceptual art where the creator tries
to represent what he knows is
there and attempts to express his
maximum knowledge of it."
This form is in direct con-
trast to visual or academic art
in which the belief persists that
things should be represented as
the artist sees them at any one
second of time and not affected
by the total mental image of
objects, he pointed out.
Crucial time for old-style folk
art occurred around 1860 when
people abandoned it for more mod-
ern styles, he continued. "When
the old folk art came off the walls
in the middle 19th century, comic
strips replaced them," Prof. Gow-

A SYSTEM of conventional sym-
bols for conceptual reality in terms
of time, movement and emotions
has developed through comics, he
said. "Comics deal with folk imag-

an example of modern American
folk art, Prof. Gowans pointed
out that the popular comic char-
acter is more than a passing fad.

Reds stormed the muddy slopes of

Ridge for the second day.
The fighting, 40 to 45 miles

mitted about a third of their
force. That meant about 6,000
Reds were in the actual attack.

The fighting was of savagery
unusual even in the Korean War.
Starting at 1:45 Monday night,
it raged all day yesterday and
on through the night up and

welter of mud, rain and sweat.
GI's used rifles, grenades, gun
butts anid knives to smash back
