Rep. Celler Denies
Wrong Doing
WASHINGTON Wl - Rep. Celler
(D.-NY) says he did "nothing
morally wrong" in a federal tax
case in which Sen. Williams (r
Del.) says there were indications
that Celier influenced Justice De
partment action.
- Commenting in statement
Wednesday night in a Senate
speech by Williams, Celler said
he merely introduced a lawyer in
tr.e case and has "no knowledge
or memory o( saying anything
about not prosecuting" a defen
dant, Samuel E. Jackson.
The attorney involved was Law
rence J. Liebcrman, law partner
of Ccller's brother-in-law Kmil N.
Baar. Licberman took over the
case after Baar was appointed to
a judgeship.
The case was one of 20 on which
Williams, continuing a years-long
campaign of criticism against In
ternal Revenue Bureau and Jus
tice Department handling of some
tax claims and prosecutions, re
ported to the Senate.
Williams said study of the 20
cases had convinced him "there
is no equality of justice" in treat
ment of big and little tax offend
ers. Top Military Men in

The motor vehicle held its place
es the No. 1 accident killer. Traf
fic deaths numbered 38,300. That
was a gain of 300 or 1 per cent
over 1952.
The traffic total was the third
largest in history, exceeded only
ir 1937 and 1941.
Fatalities in home accidents
numbered 28,000, a decline of
1,000. Accidental deaths at work
were unchanged at 15,000.
Ned H. Dearborn, president of
the council, said, "No civilized
nation can long endure this tragic
and disgraceful waste of man
power and resources from acci
dents that are avoidable."
There were some relatively
bright spots in the otherwise grim
array of statistics.
The 1953 death rate for acci
dents of all types was 60 per
100,000 population. That was the
lowest on record.
Nevertheless, one out of every
16 persons in the United States
suffered a disabling injury last
The 38,300 traffic deaths were
recorded during a year when the
number of vehicles on the road
and the number of miles they
traveled reached an all-time high.
Thus, the death rate per 100
million vehicle miles was estimat
ed at 7 the lowest rate on record.
Traffic accidents resulted in
about 1,350,000 nonfatal injuries.
Falls brought death to 20,200
persons, 1 per cent fewer than in
1952. Burns cost 6,400 lives, a 4
per cent decrease. Firearms fatal
ities rose 4 per cent to 2,450.
Drownings were unchanged at
Accidental deaths showed an
increase among the new gener
ationvictims 5 to 24 years old.
There was no change in the 25
to 44 age bracket. Decreases were
shown for children under 5 and
adults over 45.
The estimated economic loss of
$9,1003)00,000 covers both fatal and
nonfatal accidents. It includes
wage losses, medical expenses, in
surance costs, production delays,
damage to equipment and prop
erty. Last year ended with traffic
deaths on the upswing. The Decem
ber total was 3,930. That was 6
per cent higher than in December

Madison Runs
For Alderman
Don Madison, 1565 North 24th,
Wednesday filed as "a candidate
for member of the City Council
from Ward 6.
Madison's declaration as a can
didate followed immediately aft
er Tom Armstrong, present ald
erman from that ward, filed as a
candidate for county commis
sioner. George P. Haley, 1555 Roose
velt Street, president of the Ore
gon Republican Clubs, said he
also would be a candidate for
alderman from Ward 6. For the
same post pressure is being
brought upon Edward Roth, 1475
North 21st, and Ray Catcs, 1660
Roosevelt Street.
Madison, first candidate to file
for a city office, in his platform
mentions opposition to increased
taxes, water rates and sewer serv
ice charges; stands for spending
according to the budget as pre
pared by the citizens budget com
mittee; parking meters for traf
fic control and not revenue; "un
snarling of the traffic night
mare"; and promises to work for
new industries.
"I promise my neighbors in
Ward 6 prompt and energetic re
presentation" is his slogan.
Preston W. Hale, 2495 Walker
Street, a jeweler who ran for
county commissioner on the
Democratic ticket two years ago,
indicates he will run for alder
man from Ward 2.
Normally, only terms of mem
bers from the even-numbered
wards expire this year. However,
there will be an election for Ward
3 for the reason that Alderman
Claude Jorgensen is holding of
fice because a tie vote in the
last election failed to defeat him,
and under the law there will be
an election for a short term of
two years in that ward.
For Ward 4 Alderman Dan
Fry is said by friends to have
said definitely he would not be
a candidate. One of the aspiriants
for the post is E. C. Charlton,
former assistant police chief.
In Ward 2 Alderman Chester I.
Chase has not made a definite
statement. In Ward 8 Jack Loc
head, recently elected by the
council to fill the vacancy caused
by the resignation of Earl C.
Burk, will be a candidate and
no oppositioin is expected.
Rumors are heard of opposi
tion for Howard Enndvold for
city treasurer. Brandvold, pres
ent assistant in the office, will
run to succeed Paul Hauser, who
has announced he will not ask
Douglas Hay will again be a
candidate for Muncipal Judge
and so far no opposition is indi
cated. Alderman Robert F. White so
far is the only candidate who
has announced for the office of
mayor, and he has not yet filed
with the city recorder.
Indications are that White will
have opposition from the anti-one-way
grid people, but they
have not yet decided on their

ilifary Post
SAIGON, Indochina, (P) The
French High' Command Thursday
conceded the loss of the impor
tant military post of Muong Ngoi,
guarding the approaches to the
royal Laotian capital of Luang

The command said that forces
of the Communist-led Vietminh
rebels occupied the post in the
Nam Hou- River Valley as part
of their advance along a 60-mile
front Muong Ngoi is 65 miles
northeast of Luang Prabang.
In the same drive, the Vietminh
captured tow other French forts,
one at Muong bat, about 60 miles
northwest of Luang Prabang, and
the other at Ban Nam Bac. about
60 miles north of Luang Prabang.
Muong Sai was considered import
ant because of its airstrip which
the French could use as an auxil
iary airfield.
The Vietminh were reported to
be steadily advancing la the Jungle
despite the rain of bombs and
napalm showered -by French au
craft.' Scores of refugees from the
combat zone were streaming to
ward Luang Prabang. '
Earlier, the French lifted their
blackout curtain on. northern Laos
operations to disclose the estab
lishment of an airlift to pump men
and supplies into the threatened
capital . , .. '. .
French fighter-planes and bomb
ers had been reported strafing and
bombing the Vietminh columns
day and night. But the rebel tac
tic of stringing out their men fat
apart in single file made the tar
