Names In The News-
Staff News Writer '
PHILIP JESSUP, American delegate to the general assembly
session now meeting in Paris, challenged the Russians to put
their disarmament plan mto operation now, and not wait until
June 1, 1952. In answer to red charges of insincerity, Jessup
accused the Russians of attempting to by-pass the United Nations
in their latest peace bid.
ARTHUR KROCK, New York Times correspondent, refuted
claims that his story on the conferences between Gen. Dwight
Eisenhower and officials of the democratic party was his own
Krock said his informants were sticking to their story that
several high democratic officials visited Eisenhower in France
recently and offered him Truman's support in the 1952 election
if he would run as a democrat According to the story the general
refused the offer with finality.
DR. LINCOLN LA PAZ, head of the New Mexico Institute
of Meteorites, stated that the pair of fire-balls which recently
sailed across the sky in the southwestern part of the country
were "without parallel in recorded history." Assumed to be
meteors, flaming objects have been sighted seven times in the
last eleven days by hundreds of residents in Arizona and New
The meteorites are reported to fly in straight lines for long
distances, often making vapor trails, before crashing into the
earth, usually in inaccessible spots. Paz is organizing search
parties to take over investigation since civil air patrol planes
have been unable to locate any remains of the missiles from the
air. . ,
As was the case in some of the old flying saucer cases, the
objects have been sighted by at least one veteran airline pilot.
Paz offered two possible explanations: first that the earth is
passing through an unusually heavy concentration of meteoritic
debris in space, or second, that the atomic tests in Nevada might
be connected in some way with the phenomena.
ANDREI VISHINSKY, Russian foreign minister, reported to
the general assembly that he was suffering from insomnia.
Vishinsky claimed that he was kept awake all night laughing at
the western proposal on world peace.
KONRAD ADENHAUR, chancellor of western Germany, has
argued the allied high commissioners to a standstill in his bid
for a peace contract which will grant Germany actual sovereignty.
Western observers note that Germany is in an excellent bargain
ing position and that she intends to play the west off against the
Russians in order to obtain concessions.
last week that he was much' disappointed in the speed of
European rearmament. He stated that it would be unrealistic to
hope for 90 western divisions by the end of 1952, and would
be glad to have 30 that were in fighting trim.
Opinion in Washington is that "Ike" will get more backing
from the U.S. in the future, but it is also understood that we
cant push the Europeans' economies too far. Many of the Euro
pean countries just don't have the money to finance a huge arm
ament program immediately, and driving them to bankruptcy
would aid the Kremlin's cause rather than our own.

Those attending the ball will
dance to the style of music made
popular by the late Glenn Mil
ler. Tex Beneke was the man
chosen to take over the Miller
band after Miller's disappear
ance in World war IL
Beheke's musical career began
in Fort Worth, Tex. In his boy
hood, he learned to play both the
saxaphone and the clarinet. He
was discovered by Gene Krupa in
1938 who heard him playing with
a small local band.
On Krupa's recommendation,
Glenn Miller hired Beneke as sax
man for the original Miller band.
He stayed with Miller iuntil World
war II separated them. Miller
joined the army, and Beneke
joined the navy.
After Miller was declared
missing in action, Beneke was
asked to take over the band. In
January, 1946, "The Glenn Mil
ler Band with Tex Beneke"
opened at the Capitol theater on
Broadway. The band still had
the personnel as Miller had
planned it.
The band broke a 26-year at
tendance record at the Capitol. It
went on to make movie shorts and
records for RCA Victor.
After its first year on the road,
the billing was changed to read
"Tex Beneke and his orchestra."
Beneke has continued the Miller
tradition by using Miller's music
arrangements. Mrs. Miller gave
special permission to use the ar
rangements as a tribute to her
