Clinches 2d As Steelers Bow, 23-14

Cleveland Ties Giants, Remains Half Game Ahead ;

Elter Scores Twice

By Jack Walsh Staff Reporter

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 27— For the first time in the history of the Washington Redskins, they failed to com-| plete a forward pass today. |

So what happened? They beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, 23-14, | before 21,760 Forbes Field fans’ and clinched second place in| the National Football League's Eastern Division.

In winning their fourth in a Nearly $12,000 Due Her

row for the first time since) 1948, the Skins ran their sea- son's. record to 7-3. Literally, they ground out a victory on two touchdown runs by full- back Leo Elter, 33 and 20 yards

Washington stayed in con- tention for the Eastern Divi- sion title with Cleveland nearly cooperating to give the Skins a tie. However, the Browns managed to gain a 35-35 tie with the New York Giants and still: must lose one of its remaining! two games for Washington to get in the picture. The Browns lead the Redskins by one-half game.

The Skins attempted only) eight passes. Starting Quarter- back Ralph Guglielmi went 0 for 2 and Eddie LeBaron 0 for 6. But Ralph and Eddie smartly directed a ground game that! made 329 yards to Pittsburgh's |

Fall of Afghanistan To Red Rule Feared

By Ferdinand SEE ae ee

of weekly reports on the prob-

lems and prospects of non-Communist Asia.)

KABUL, Afghanistan, Nov. 27 The new rulers of Russia have something to smile about these days as they look southward toward the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean. They can see this land-locked country on their southern border stum- bling into economic, political and military dependence on the Soviet Union.

The Afghans are good Mos- lems with no love for Russia or communism, but their leaders may yet deliver them into So- viet hands. The result would be the end of another country’s independence, and a dangerous expansion of Soviet power.

At first sight no part of Asia could matter less to the West than this Texas-sized country of bare mountains, deserts and

river valleys. Its 12 million people, three fourths of them farmers and one fifth wander- ing herdsmen, are no threat to anyone. Of its natural re- sources, only karakul lamb- sking and fruit have been ex- ploited up to now; its foreign ,trade with the free world is an junimportant $64 million worth a year.

But geography has Afghanistan important for more than 2000 years. Con- querors starting with Alexan- der the Great have swept through its barren plains and mountain passes into India. To- day the Russians have a sud- den opportunity to get to the edge of the Indian subconti- nent, without sending an army

ps Dust Over World

Rain Too ‘Hot’ In South Japan; India Circles Call Test Injudicious


Radioactive dust and air currents from Russia’s big- gest hydrogen bomb blast were reported around the world yesterday.

A Soviet Foreign Ministry statement in Moscow said the recent blast was carried out “at great height” to avoid radio- active fallout.

But falls of radioactive rain

yesterday registered 28,000 counts per liter per minute in

geiger counter tests. The Japa- nese Welfare Ministry has said there can be danger to humaas in an atmosphere with radio- activity beyond 100 counts a minute.

In West Germany, the Physi-

Western observers said an that

bomb similar to that detonated by the United States at Bikini the Pacific on March 1, 1054. (The Bikini blast .s variously estimated to have produced an explosion force of betwéen 12 and 20 megatons (one megaton equals 1 million tons of TNT).

In India, official circles felt that Russia’s action in explod. ing the bomb and announcing | it in the middle of a good-will visit to India—which has con- sistently condemned the manu- fecture and testing of nuclear weapons—was an injudicious and untimely move.

Western diplomats in London were also puzzled by the tim- ing of the Soviet announce- ment.

Conference Under Way Here Today

Union Delegates Decide Against ‘Prejudging’ of School Talks

By Richard J. Maloy Sta Reporter

The White House Confer- ence on Education gets un- der way today with a wary pledge of cooperation from organized labor.

In a surprising flip-flop yes- terday, labor delegates decided not to “pre-judge” the Con- ference and withheld action on a resolution which would have roundly condemned the meet- ing before it started.

The development occurred during a Statler Hotel caucus of 100 unionists who are among the 2000 delegates to the politi- cally explosive fourday Con- ference.

Last week Andrew J. Bie- miller, AFL legislative repre- sentative, said unionists feared “ridiculous” Conference proce- dure would prevent honest ex- pression of opinion during the meeting and called it an Ad- ministration “stalling tactic” to prevent action on school needs.

But yesterday Labor dele- gates to the Conference decided to refrain from further criti- cism until they see how things actually go during working ses- sions Tuesday and Wednesday.

They scheduled another cau- cus for 5:30 p. m. Wednesday when delegates will report on how the sessions are conducted. If Labor feels events prove their gag-rule charges it will then issue a critical blast and press for a change in Confer- ence rules.

The caucus issued a mildly- worded statement expressing “concern regarding the inade-

| The statement noted ‘that “less than 5 per cent of ithe delegates are from the trade union movement, whereas ithe members of organized labor and their families constitute at least 35 per cent of the popu- lation.”

der that order and you will be further advised.”

Mrs. Burrell’s attorneys, Frank Reeves of Washington and Milton B. Allen of Balti- more, fear, however, that the Army may bring up the same charges against her once she) is reinstated. |

Since February 29, 1952, the) Army, and then the Civil Serv- ice Commission, have attempt- ed a combination of a security, loyalty and unsuitability actions to keep her out of her job.

The Army “fired” her on a “question of your loyalty.” On April 14, 1952, she was restored to duty because she was im-| properly separated and the! next day she was suspended on) security grounds. On May 16,) 1952, she was restored to duty because no security charges had been issued, then six days later she was suspended again

The National Planning Asso- ciation decldred yesterday that), Russia had handed the United) States major foreign policy de- feats in recent months ranging from the Middle East to NATO and Germany.

The Association, a nonprofit organization of business and professional leaders, said it is “high time to recognize and ap- preciate the extent to which the position of the non-Soviet world has deteriorated.”

Declaring that the “most ilous phase” of the cold war ahead, it called on the United States to take the initiative on diplomatic, economic and ideolo fronts rather than “merely react to Communist moves.”

“It is the contention of this


Calling for immediate action on the diplomatic front, the Association said the “first order of business” should be te “breathe new life” into NATO by “reviving the dedication to a common cause and nee confidence in our purposes leadership.”

On the economic front, it said, “it would be quite absurd” for the United States to be out- distanced by the Communists, It called for a “more generous attitude” toward economic aid programs, technical assistance and help to undeveloped areas,

The Association urged Con- gress and others to let the U. S. information service forge ahead with a program to assist friends and potential friends of this country to realize the link between their ambitions and those of the United States.

Sen. J Unless the problem is faced in a “realistic” and en- lightened spirit, it said, all Western defenses based on France and her possessions will remain insecure.

But it is in the Middle East, the statement contended, that the Free World's position has been most seriously hurt. Rus- sia is making overtures to the Arab world and selling it arms while the United States fails to face the full implications.

“Can we expect the Arab

rid to react with deeper un- derstanding than we display to a threat which seems so re- mote?” it asked.

Even within the North At- antic Treaty Organizations, he Association said, there has

een a “disturbing trend.” It noted a “noticeable slackening

policy in light of a Geneva deadlock with Rus- a. O'Mahoney, whose Senate Monopoly Subcommittee is making a “case study” of Gen- eral Motors, also said the United States must remain free of domination by Big Business or Big Government to-retain its free world leadership. Meantime, Sens. John J. Sparkman (D-Ala.) and Arthur V. Watkins (R-Utah) split over whether President Eisenhower and of State John Foster Dulles were “too opti- mistic” about the chiefs of state and later foreign ministers

finger. The reason is a miser- able dispute summed up in the word “Pushtunistan.”

The dispute concerns the nine million warlike tribesmen who live on both sides of the Pakistan-Afghanistan frontier. About four million of them are on the Afghan side, five million in Pakistan. In 1947, when the British quit India and set up an independent Pakistan, the Afghans revived an old de- mand that these tribesmen should form an independent nation. Since the tribesmen are Pathans, or “Pushtuns” in their own language, their new nation was to be known as “Pushtunistan.”

For eight years the Afghans have been beating the drums of a crude propaganda against Pakistan on this issue. They have demanded that Pakistan give up a huge slice of its ter- ritory to make the new state possible. To an outsider it looks like without the slightest basis in international law; but the Afghans take it seriously. In particular, their strong-willed young Prime Minister, Prince Mohammed Duad, a first cous- in of the king, takes it with the seriousness of a zealot.

Pakistan Closes Border

The dispute reached the breaking point last March, when Pakistan merged its! Northwest frontier province, the home of the tribesmen, into a single state of West Pakistan. An Afghan mob stormed the Pakistan embassy here and tore down its flag. When apolo- gies did not come, Pakistan committed an act of breath-tak- ing folly for a bigger, stronger and presumably wiser neigh- bor, It closed the Afgan fron- tier and imposed an economic blockade. The Afghans foynd themselves landlocked as never before. They had been bringing most of their machinery, trucks and consumer goods, and send-

sidized rates,

using the most of their traffic, though Pakistan has now re- opened its frontier. In their anger at Pakistan, the Afghans are even talking about getting arms from Russia.
