UN Officials Receive
Tibetan Protest Note
Compiled by John Barton
From the wires of Associated Press
Tibet’s note to the United Nations asking for aid in fighting in
vading Communist China has been received by Secretary Gener
al Trygve Lie. Tibetan authorities have been saying for several
days that the protest was on its way, but U. N. officials got it only
Korean See-Saw Fighting...
. . . today has United Marines advancing on the central front against
virtually no opposition. But on both ends of the Korean front, tough
fighting is underway.
The Marines, bundled up in their winter parka uniforms, are creeping
cautiously ahead (more than five miles yesterday) toward the great
Changjin reservoir. They’re being supported by Marine fighter planes.
On the western end of the front, the Reds are digging in or fighting de
laying actions. But on the other end of the front, Communists yesterday
were pushing off on a strong attack.
Air Force Action...
... in Korea is continuing to raise hob with Communist supply prob
lems. Some roads have been completely bottled up by lines of wrecked
and burning vehicles, while others aren’t safe' to travel. The U. N. air arm
is restricting most Red travel to night.
Russia Still Wants...
- .. the Big Four to accept its plan for the unification of Germany. The
Keds say remove troops and have a single government. But Britain’s
foreign Minister Bevin says NO to the proposal. And he hinted yesterday
that Britain will reject the Russ bid for a Big Four meeting to discuss
The Peace Conference...
. . . being held in Sheffield, England, is having a rough time of it. It’s
a meeting of left-wing sympathizers to adopt Russian plans for outlaw
ing the atom bomb and so on. And of course it has Russian sanction. But
British authorities don’t go for it. They haven’t even allowed many dele
gates to the conference to enter the country on the count that they are
“personna non grata.” The conference is thinking of moving to Warsaw,
since the Polish government says it’ll pay expenses.
Assassination in Venezuela... ,
. . . yesterday brought immediate suspension of many civil rights in
the little South American nation. Dead is Lt. Col. Carlos Delgado Chal
baud, head of Venezuela’s military government. The shooting was an
nounced by Defense Minister Marco Perez Jimenez. He’s a surviving
member of the three-man Junta which has ruled the country since the
bloodless revolt in 1948.
58 Persons Died in the Crash...
. . . yesterday of a Canadian DC-4 plane near Mount Obiou in France.
The mountain is 8,500 feet high, about 30 miles south of Grenoble in
Hawaiifs Proposed State Constitution...
... has been ratified by voters. The vote was an overwhelming 3-1 in
favor of the document. It’s considered another step toward statehood
No Half-Way for Russia...
. . . says Henry Wallace, former vice-president and progressive party
leader. Wallace said over the weekend that the U. S. must build up armed
strength until Russia and Red China give evidence they are interested in
Democratic Defeat Was Because...
... of lack of public confidence in President Truman’s foreign policy,
says re-elected Ohio Senator Taft (R). And he said that if Congress
meets for a quicky session before Christmas, it will result in—adjourn
Reduced Freight Rates. ..
... on water and rail between a score of mid-western cities was order
ed yesterday by the Interstate Commerce Commission. The cut will
amount to about 3.5 per cent of the present rates.
Non-Military Use of Aluminum...
... has been cut by government order. Amount of this cut is 35 per cent.
It’ll go into effect in January. And it’ll mean fewer television antennae,
bicycles, and so on for Joe Citizen. But it also means a secure stockpile
cf aluminum for military use.
The Telephone Strike...
... is still slowing long-distance service throughout the nation. In New
York yesterday, operators claimed they were “locked out” of their jobs
when they reported for work. The picket lines of striking equipment
workers had been removed. Company officials say the “locked out”
charge is “absurd.”
In Oregon, the strikers are still, using their picket-here-today-and-not
tomorrow tactics. Yesterday they concentrated on cities and towns which
have manually-operated exchanges. And the telephone scene in Florida.
The Southern Bell Telephone Company...
. . . was indicted yesterday by the Dade county grand jury on a charge
of “being an accessory to the operation of gambling houses.” And the
Dade grand jury also charges that several big businessess in America are
contributing to unlawful gambling.
The New York Congressional Election...
... is being investigated by a House committee in Washington. Repub
lican Rep. W. Kingland Macy was apparently defeated in the election.
No#he’s asked for the investigation, because, he says, he asked for and
didn’t get cooperation from Nassau county officials in examining elec
