Three Local Cops
Torrid Battle
They had had "a few too
many' so C. O. Belisle, manager
of the Vets Lounge, 123 W. Wash
ington St., Instructed bartender
Frank Addison to "close the bar"
to the large man and his wife.
Fury let loose; guests hovered
against the walls; the man let go
with his fists and chased Belisle

Chief of Police Calvin H. Baird
today reported the arrest of
George William Gordon, a profes
sional prize fighter, and his wife,
Ruth, who were subdued by three
policemen after a disturbance at
the club Sunday afternoon.
. Officer Ted Mazac was sent to
the Club, following a complaint
to the police, at 5:15. He found
Gordon and his wife sitting at the
bar. As the officer attempted to
question Gordon, the fighter
struck him.
The chief said that Mazac had
his handcuffs out, ready to slip
them over Gordon's wrists. But
he found that the fighter's wrists
were too large for the cuffs.
As the fighter began to pum
mel the officer, Mazac had to
slap at Gordon's face with the
handcuffs. As It was, Mazac suf
fered three gashes on his fore
head from the blows rained on
him by Gordon. The officer drew
his gun, but did not fire lest he
in lure bystanders.
Sgt. William Burke and Offi
cer William Deal soon came on
the scene to give support to
Mazac. The three subdued Gar

Witnesses told officers that dur

In reply Lilienthal said the
commission's record, including
the building up of "a substantial
stockpile of atomic weapons," is
the best answer to the Iowa Sen

began, the Commission has
agreed to require a loyalty oath
from those getting help under

"I have also disagreed with

"There must be a complete In

Vandenberg gave reporters his

paper in which Forrestal had
copied, In a firm hand, the first
26 lines of the doleful poem.
The court of Inquiry In the case
was ordered by Rear Admiral M.
D. Willcutts, commandant of the
Naval Medical Center. Just exact
ly what It might examine was not
certain in advance. From state
ments of officials at the hospital,
this story was constructed:
In the weeks that followed For
restal's entry for treatment, he
seeemd to be on the road to com

But when the patient's bedtime
came Saturday night he declined
to take the usual sedative. Choos
ing a time when attendants were
elsewhere on his 16th floor, For
restal left his room (carefully
avoiding going through another
room of his suite in which a doc
tor was located), walked diagon
ally across a corridor to a diet
kitchen. There the window, un
like that of his own room, had no
tightly secure wire screen.
A nurse on the seventh floor
heard the thud of his body as it
struck an offset of the building
above the third floor. He was
dead when attendants rushed to
the spot. Curiously, his wrist
watch was still running. He wore
his pajamas and his bathrobe.
The robe's belt cord was twisted
tlehtlv around his neck.
Admiral Wlllcutss told report
ers: "That type of suicide is im
possible to prevent. You can't
take a man of that brilliance and
put a guard over him all the time.

clamoring for Western interven

the United States called the com
mandants Into session to discuss
the citv government's plea and
other aspects of what he called
an "Intolerable situation."
Most trouble soots were Inac
tive, at least for the time being.
At least three trains managed to
reach Berlin from the West, al
though the rail yards were large
ly unmanned.
Even witnout ine etevatea rail
way service, which normally car
ries more than a half million
persons dally, business activity
in Berlin appeared near normal.
Street cars are not affected by
the strike. The cars and buses
were Jammed with passengers.
The strikers seek, principally,
payment from the Soviet-controlled
administration in West
marks. Russian-sponsored East
marks are worth only a quarter
of the Western currency and are
illegal In Western sectors.
The military commanders of
the West said they would permit
Intervention in individual cases
If rioting should get out of hand
at any specific station.
A cheek with all official
sources in West Berlin showed
about 17 strike demonstrators
and 15 Soviet sector police and
strikebreakers had been hospi
talized with serious wounds or
injuries. All official sources said
no deaths had been reported
since the strike began Saturday.
Scores of persons were given
first aid during the continuing
series of fights with clubs, fists,
rocks and, finally, pistols and
carbines of Eastern Police.
Whether the low casualty total
was due to bad aim on the part
of the police or whether the fir
ing was mostly for warning was
not completely clear.
Another Incident In which Rus
sian soldiers were stoned by a
strike mob occurred yesterday.
A truck carrying 30 men In Sov
iet uniforms was bombarded with
rocks when it halted near the
zoo station in the British sector.
Hiitkh sector police protected
them as the truck departed.

Put Compact On

tiP) The Southern Baptist Con

right to welcome churches from
any part of the United States

long as they can conform to New
Testament Baptist principles.
The action came amid a chain of
events, which some asserted and
others denied, presages wide
spread expansion of the Southern
Baptist organization into terri
tory now dominated by the North
ern Baptist Convention.
The Baptists unanimously adopt
ed a committee report by Dr. T.
C. Gardner, Dallas, Tex., chair
man of a group studying common
problems with Northern Baptists
the past year.
The Gardner report reaffirmed
the Southern Baptist stand
against against any compact of
agreement with the Northern
Baptists or any other organiza
tion "which doe3 not practice
New Testament Baptist prin
ciples." "This," Gardner said, "Included
the Federal Council of Churches
of Christ in America. The Fed
eral Council of Churches will de
stroy a spiritual body just as a
cancer destroys a physical body.
