“They'll come out alphabetic- ally,” an Air Force major cried down to the newsreel men, “the walking wounded first. They say they do not wish to talk to reporters, They want to rest here a little while and then they want to go home.”

First GI Appears

While the major was speaking, a GI came through the hatch- way and started slowly down the ramp. He was Sgt. Edward G. Anderson of Alabama City, Ala. The emotional impact of this mo- ment was something beyond the power of words to impart. There was no noise save the whirring of the movie cameras and a few scattered handclaps.

Home, Sweet Home for GI

By the Associated Press ied Leominster, Mass.

Deep into the early morning hours today, the small green and white frame house at 177 Hall Street was kept awake by a delicious insomnia.

“Who can sleep?” asked Mrs. Walter LeGay.

Her son, Cpl. Donald LeGay, was réturning home in a few hours after 29 months’ imprison- ment in North Korea. And (sleep or no sleep) the LeGays were


Donald’s best gray suit (civil- fan) owas hanging, freshly cleaned and pressed, on the kitchen door. Newly laundered shirts were draped over a dryer in the crowded dining room, near the ironing board. In the same room stood a big refrigerator, jammed with the makings of cheesé sandwiches and straw- berry shortcake and other items Donald relishes.

Near his picture on top of the old upright piano in the small living room were small gifts awaiting the returning Soldier, on the wall opposite the television set stood a stack of clippings recording the GI’s return to free- dom.

New Convertible Waiting

And down at the garage where his father works as a mechanic—

1947—a new convertible was ting. Just how or when the new car

would be paid for, Walter LeGay, a gaunt, quiet man, could not say, A





Field, Miss., was flying home to make the reunion complete.

And then there was the call from San Francisco at 6 p.m.

“It was Donald again,” said hm, ‘first trip to New York, the Le-

mother. “I had talked to him in Tokyo, but this time he sounded so much better—so much closer. He wanted to know how we all were and asked about the con- vertible.”

The phone had been ringing all day but the LeGays were still hungry for exact word on Don- ald’s arrival in the East.

At 8:10 p.m. it rang again. Mrs. LeGay answered it and repeated aloud a telegram from Washing- ton.

At 8:30, the phone again. This time a picture-magazine photog- rapher wanted to know if he could drive the LeGays to the airport. They said, no thanks, their 1942 Lincoln could ‘still make the trip.

Gis on the Radio

At 8:55, a friend called to say the returning GIs were now on the radio, transcribed, from San Francisco.

The LeGays hurried around their small set in the kitchen but waited in vain for Donald’s voice.

ve Pie)

At 9:02, a New York television director wanted to know if the family would fly down to join Donald in a TV show. Obviously excited by the prospect of their

Gays. said they would think it over.

At 9:15, the Associated Press called from Boston. The Army had just announced the returning Gls were flying commercial lines from the coast.

At 11, after being tipped off by |

a local radio station, the family gathered again in the kitchen to hear Donald interviewed by tran- scription from San Francisco.

“Coming home,” he Said, “is like coming back to earth a sec- ond time.”

Mrs. LeGay looked at her hus- band and smiled.

Asked about reports that some prisoners had succumbed to Com- munist . indoctrination, Donald said, “I’d rather not say.”

“They'd never get Donald to fall for that stuff,” mother. °

Shortly before midnight came definite word that Donald would reach Boston at 3:05 p.m. today.

“Somehow I Still don’t feel sleepy,” his mother said.

Active in Party

Mrs. Markward further testi- fied that she joined the party in May, 1943, and remained active through October, 1949, during which time she served in several important capacities.

The Maryland housewife ad- mitted she did not know the de- 'fendant personally but she iden-

During Mrs. Markward’s ten- ure in the Communist Party she actually was an undercover in- vestigator for the FBI. It was on | this point that the defense coun- sel, Emanuel H. Bloch, strenu- ously objected to her testirhony. He said that so far none of her testimony has had any on whether or not Lieutenant Thierman ever became a member of a Communist group.

Trade. Not Aid—a Practical View

By ROSCOE DRUMMOND, Chiel, Washington News Bureau, The Christian Science Monitor


' Substitution of a policy of ‘trade for aid. with our princi- pal allies is not something ‘which concerns a few busi- ‘nessmen whose companies would have to accept competi- ‘tion in the open market of world trade.

It concerns the whole na- tional welfare. _ It concerns the pocketbooks of every voter and every tax- payer.

It concerns the effectiveness of America’s efforts to help build the strength and unity of the free world in the com- mon defense.

It concerns the vigor and health of the whole economy

}—not just a few industries:

There is little doubt that if

iito what it sells abroad, there

will be some economic dislo- cations within the nation. Ways of easing these disloca- tions should be examined. They present a very real problem. But in reaching an over-all policy decision we need to weigh the national welfare against the affected industries and to determine on balance whether trade rather than aid is not, on balance, the far greater good.

Py ae Sometimes the advocates of trade, not aid, are met by op- position which does not deal

“The gradual reduction of the United States tariffs is an indispensable ingredient of a forward-looking economic policy.”

The critic also objects to the following statement of the dilemma arising from the fact that we sell about $4,500,000,- 000 more abroad than we buy:

“We can continue giving away our assets in the form of foreign aid. Or,

“We can accept more foreign goods thereby obtain- ing a useful quid pro. quo for our exports. |

New England business and in- |

dustrial leaders whose firms comprise the membership of the New England Council and the New England Association of Commercial Executives.

“The Communists,” says Undersecretary of State Walter Bedell Smith who, as former ambassador to Mos- cow, knows the Communists pretty well, “look with enthu- siastic approval on the erec- tion of new trade barriers be- tween the nations of the free world.

“Our national policy must be directed toward preventing such disruption. There must be more trade to help defeat the short-range threat to our

And this year the Chamber of Commerce of the ' United States itself is giving support to the policy of increasing im- ports ‘on the ground that such a policy is in the national terest. ,

Members of the chamber are not theorists only and. they have all met payrolls.

Plight in UN Recalled M. Bidault has not forgotten, it seems, the number of occa-

sions during the past winter i

when the French representatives walked out of UN sessions to avoid listening to harsh criticism of their country’s overseas pol- icies in North Africa and Asia. The Paris press has taken up the discussion on the Indo- Chinese news with energy, and some bitterness, A striving article by Servan Schreiber in Le Monde, entitled “Why We Are Fighting,” refers to the report drawn up by a parliamentary commission of


M. Schreiber charges that “real power in Indo-China belongs to the army. . . » The interest of the metropole, however, is eliminated a trifle more by the game of certain French politi groups which have found their principal source of revenue in the war.” He also refers to “a determination to prevent any solution other than a military victory—that is, indefinite occupation.”

_ In the meantime, however, it is expected here that the news may be increasingly dramatic, for official reassurance at present has taken no more solid form than reference to the imminence of the rainy season, which it. is thought may hold up the aggres- sors, though in the past it has proved mainly a handicap for French aviation.
