Washing- |

fon girl and her two nieces)

were among five persons drowned yesterday when a speedboat with seven aboard capsized in the choppy Potomac off Cobb Island, Md. A second Washington girl was one of two who survived.

Charles County Medical aminer Edward Edelen identi- fied the victims as Faye Roun- tree. daughter of Mr. and Mrs George M. Rountree, of 704 Longfellow st. nw.; Kay Staf ford. 18. and her 15-vearold sister, Glenda, of River Springs, Md. Russell Walling, of Colo- nial Beach, Va.. and the boat's owner. identified as Peyton C. (Woody) Woodzell, a Warrenton (Va.) hardware dealer.

Recovering after treatment for exposure in Physicians Me- morial Hospital at La Plata, Md.. were Linda Knight, 15, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John FE. Knight of 708 Longfellow st nw.. and Barbara Ann Russell 19, of River Springs.

Only the bodies of Walling and the younger Stafford gir! had not been recovered when darkness forced suspension of dragging operations last night Miss "tlountree was taken from the water almost as quickly as the two survivors, but more than an hour of artificial res npiration applied by members of the Cobb Island Volunteer Fire Department failed to re vive her. .

She was to have been mar ried this week to a sailor sta tioned at Bainbridge, Md.

The two hospitalized girl's gave reporters this account of the tragedy and the events preceding it:

Miss Knight accompanied her friend and neighbor, Faye. Saturday for a weekend visit with the Staffords at River Springs, a Wicomico River shoreside community in 5t Mary's County

Accompanied . by Stafford girls, they River Springs restaurant, where Mis« Russell joined them. The two men invited all five of them for a ride in Woodzell's 20-feat plexiglass open inboard speed. hoat the men had just ridden in from Colonial Beach, across the Potomac

They went over to Cobb Island. where the girls said they danced a while and drank pop in a restaurant before taking off fer the return trip to River Springs.

Miss Russell said she was seated In the bow of the boat. Linda was in the stern. Wood- zvell was at the controls. Neither was able to recall what hap- pened, except that suddenly the craft started filling. Woodzell managed a short distress blast of the boat's horn before it went under, throwing all seven into the water.

Barbara Ann grabbed a float ing life. preserver. Linda and Woodzell held onto a nonsink- able cushion. The water was icy cold, Linda said: and. very rough. Of the others, aftér she hit the water, all she could re- call was the sight Stafford throwing up her hands and disappearing. Before a boat could reach them. Linda said, Woodzell his grip on the cushion and sank.

Round Table Club Raided,

5 Arrested

Snags Lewis One Of Three Held on

Gambling Charges

William (Snags) Lewis, 41, one-time boss of a reported $1# million-a-year numbers busines# here, and four other men were arrested by police raiders yes terday and charged with setting up a gaming table.

The men were seized in a predawn raid on the Round Table Club on the second floor of 923 lith «st. nw. The raid was led by Capt. John B. Lay ton, head of the gambling squad.

Lewis’ arrest was his first ‘brush with the law since he was released from jail in 1952 after serving time on gambling and criminal conspiracy charges Lewis was sentenced to 6-(o-18 months in March, 1951, when he pleaded guilty to charges which stemmed from his arrest with 12 others during an anti-cam bling crusade by the District Attorney's office in 1949.

Arrested with Lewis, who gave his address as the Weod- ner, 3636 16th st. nw., were

Nick Keart, 48, of 1214 Mas. sachusetts ave. nw., who police said was president of the club: William Walter Smith. 58. of 1719 Allison ne.: Frank B Martin. 38. of 2504 10th at ne and Frank M. Goldberg, 50, of 1302 Saratoga ave. ne

All five prisoners posted $1000 bond pending avfraignment to- day before United States Com. missioner Cyril S. Lawrence

Police said Smith was ar- rested on a charge of setting up a gaming table in a raid February 17 on a third-floor room of the Atlas Club, 1349 E st. nw. Smith was free on $1000 bond on the Atlas Club charge when he was picked up yesterday, Layton explained.

Fifteen other men who were in the Round Table Club when -the raiders struck were taken to police headquarters and re- leased after questioning

Layton said the raid stemmed from an investigation of “sev- eral months” of the Round Table. which he described as

club frequented by “well- known gambling figures.”

Layton reported that no gam- ‘bling was in progress when the raiders, armed with United ‘States Commissioner's war- rants, walked into the club through unlocked doors.

Teen-agers Defy Police in Florida Riot

| ‘“Drag-Raee’ Outbreak | Is Finally Subdued | By National Guard

(Picture on Page 3)

| DAYTONA BEACH, Fie, Fe 26 ‘#—Authorities today were trying to determine the ring- leaders of a rioting mob which defied police for about five hours snd finally scurried fer cover early this morning when Na- tional Guardsmen moved into the heart of this resort area.

Daytona Beach Police Capt 4. O. Folsom Jr. estimated the mob numbered between 3000 and 4000, with that many spec- tators drawn to the scene by the disorder, “Drag en thusiasts formed the core of the mob, he said.

The sheriff's office at nearby De Land, Volusia County seat, said 33 persons were being held in the county jail and officers were questioning them in an effort to ferret out the leaders.

All persons arrested were taken to De Land but the sher-

iff’< office said numerous others posted bond and were hever actually locked up. At the jail, it was said those held ran about “40 per cent teen-agers” and most of the ethers were in their 20s.

Folsom said about 15 persons were injured, including one po- liceman who got a cut on an arm, and five firemen who were peppered with rocks when they tried to disperse the mob with water.

Police said the trouble started Saturday night when officers stopped some young “drag race” enthusiasts from “scratching off’ from the Main street in- tersection down an approach to the beach sands

Youngsters who had / been standing at the intersection cheering the rubber burning antics apparently thought one of their group had been arrested but Police Chief Roy Allen said no arrest was made at that time.

Then, Allen said, tires were slashed on two police cars and windows smashed on one. Al various stages, police fired three tear gas shells into the mob but Allen said the rioters seemed to come back stronger than ever so those tactics were abandoned.


Secretary Asserts LU. S. Takes ‘Risk’ Without It in Face Of Soviet Shifts


PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 26 ()—Secretary of State John Foster Dulles said today there no need to he “panicked” by Russia's new economic policy but he called janew for greater leeway in ‘United States foreign aid spending Without the


limited long- range authority sought by the Administration, Dulles said. “we take a risk which is quite wnjustified, having regard to the small cost of avoiding it.”

| Congressional leaders, includ. ‘ing Senate Republican Leader (William F. Knowland of Calif. (ornia and Chairman Walter F |\George (D4Gja.) of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. have expressed opposition to any long-term commitment au- thority They contend foreign aid spending should be subject to eongressional review each year.

President Elsenhower told news conference on Jan. 2! there are certain projects in which “you have to give some pledge of going on to the end” if they are started.

Cites Seviet Shift«

Dultea said this country's basic policy is to try to hasten the day when Russia will be governed by “men who put the welfare of the Russian people above world conquest.”

But meanwhile he said the rulers of Soviet policy roam far and wide, shifting and turning in efforts to “make it easier to achieve the old goals of con quest.”

“We must assume.” he said. “that the intent behind the So viet economic campaign is to subvert and communize the na tions that are its targets.”

He declared that the Russians have already won with their economic offensive “a consid- erable popular prestige” in the less developed countries of Asia and Africa and said that the anti-Communist political leaders of those countries will find it hard to resist “the pub- lic pressures which Soviet prop ‘aganda arouses” unless the Western World offers them “some alternative.”

Appeals for Aid Boost

In a speech at the Philadel phia Bulletin Forum, meeting in Independence Hall, Dulles de clared that part of the answer to the new Soviet threat is for Congress to grant the United States Government authority to commit about $100 million a year for several years for Ong-range development of pro}- ects which would increase the economic strength of the So. viet target countries.

He also said the Government needs about $100 million more in new money than it obtained

Senator Charges His Rival Fights ‘Backhandedly’ in

New Hampshire .

By Far! Mazo

~ YY Herald Tribune News Service

Sen. Estes Kefauver (D- Tenn.) charged Adlai E. Stev- enson yesterday with resort- ing to a form of subterfuge in the Nation’s first presi- dential primary, that of New Hampshire on March 13. the most unfriendly on- the-record comment made to date by either candidate for

the Democratic ~ nomination

about the other, Sen. Kefauver said Stevenson is “not combat. ing directly. but backhand edly” in New Hampshire.

“It is the general direction of his campaign ... He is not competing front-on,” he added

His complaint was that Ste venson insists he is not a candi- date in the New Hampshire primary, yet a full slate of dele. gates favorabie to him and com. posed of the state's prominent Democrats is in the race.

“It is an issue between him and me in New and if | win I will consider it a great victory.” Kefauver said in an. interview before leaving for another intensive stumping tour.

Stevenson backers in New MNafpshire hope to demonstrate the power of the Stevenson and perhaps assure the Democratic nomination for him by winning some delegate con- tests there even though Steven. son is not on the scene to vie with the hardcampaigning Ke lauver

Stevenson has said he is “flattered and grateful” that friends are running in his be half in New. Hampshire, even though he is not a candidate there

Kefauver leaders consider the psychological value of winning the New Hampshire more int- portant than the state's eight votes at the National Conven- tion. In 1952, the Senator won a commanding victory in the state over the Democratic or- ganization, which was backing President Truman, The latter, like Stevenson, had not given formal consent to the use of his name, however.

Before leaving for lowa yes terday. Kefauver reviewed his campaign date (he has cov- ered 35.000 miles and shaken an estimated 530,000 hands already. with the campaign “just begin- ning”). and figured he has been gaining so much ground with people and with party leaders that he is bound to win the nemination

Whether President Eisenhow er decides to run again or not will have ne effect on his cam- paign, Kefauver said.

Although raising enough money is a “serious problem,” he said he is thinking of going

Lobbying Groups Face

Karly Subpena for Qu

By Jack Bel!


Associated Press

Indications mounted yester- day that action to subpena the books and records of large lob. by organizations may be one of the first of a new bipartisan Senate Investiga- tion Committee, The group will organize on Wednesday.

Although members were re- luctant to forecast publicly the course their inquiry will take. some bf them said privately they think lobbying and in fluence peddling should be- come the first order of busi- ness.

The special Committee, set up by a 79-1 vote of the Sen ate, was given broad authority to inquire into “attempts to in- fluence improperly or illegal- ly” the Senate, Senators, can- didates or Federal officials or employes “through campaign contributions. political activi lies, lobbying or any and all other activities or practices.

A eheck of those of the four Democratic and four Republi can members willing to ex press their views publicly brought «suggestions for in vestigation of a score of in dividual organizations, groups or incidents

Sen. Albert Gore who is expected to become chairman of the group. has said he wants to look into the “interstate transportation of money in political campaigns Out-of-state gifts to can didates which may influence elections far from the donor's area.

Other suggestions for investi. gations ranged from the activ- ities of labor unions and the National Associaton of Manu facturers to alleged “pressure” behind the mailing of postcards to Sen. Herbert H. Lehman (D N.Y.) urging him to support the natural gas bill, which he voted against

Some Committee members emphasized that they are more interested in assembling testi mony which will lead to changes in the lobbying and election laws than they are in exposing

Similarly, Sen. Sdward J Thye (R-Minn.) said he wants the group to study the laws dealing with elections and lob bying in an effort to find what loopholes exist in them

Sen. Barry Goldwater (R- Ariz.) has made it clear that if he has any say about it, the Committee will look into labo! unions contributions to political campaigns. He contends that dues collected from Republican union members have been used support Democratic candi- dates.

Forces Escort Of Girl From (ar, Abandons It After Crash

A youthful gunman. whe abducted a Washington girl after stealing her escort’s car and forcing him out of the auto, was the object of an in- tensive police search early today near Lorton Reforma- Lory.

Lois Richoux, 23, of 3419 Oak- wood ter. nw. escaped after her abductor lost control of the alilo and it rolled over an em- bankment 50 yards from the home of William Berrett én Route 642 across from the Re formator.s

Police said the girl told them ithe man carried her from the She pleaded with him to her go, police quoted her as saying.

They returned to the highway, said, and she began iscreaming as a car approached. The white man, stocky and about 23 years old, and believed to be ecarrving a AS caliber automatic disappeared into the woods.

Berrett said Miss Richoux staggered into his home shortly after 10 p. m. in a state of nervous hysteria and told how the gumman had forced her escort, Fritz H. Wolf. 26. of 5012 14th st. nw... out of the car a short distance from the Reform- atory grounds.

A 25-man searching party of Virginia State troopers, Fairfax County police and Lorton offi- cers, working with bloodhounds, reported they picked up the fugitive’s trail shortly before midnight in a 100-acre apple orchard on the Reformatory grounds.

Earlier, Lorton Capt. Hoke S. Hinson said he fired a warning shot at a man believed to have been the. gunman who came te Hinson’s house on the Reforma- ‘ry grounds and asked him to call a cab.

Hinson said the youth showed him a Marine identification card and told him he had to “get back to Quantico.” Hinson called State Police at Engleside Barracks and learned the de- scription of the youth matched that of the fugitive.

Hinson said he drew his gun and ordered the youth insidé. When his caller bolted for the woods, Hinson said he fired over the youth's head.

Meanwhile, Miss Richoug, iwho police said was unharmed, was taken to Engleside Bar- racks. Wolf, who had made his way to a house on Route 352 iand called police, joined in the manhunt

Miss Richoux said the gun- man tossed Wolf's wallet to her when she begged him to let her go. As she ran to Berrett's house, Miss Richoux said the gunman chased her and shout- ed: “If vou notify police Ill get you.

Police said Miss Richoux told them that she and Wolf had agreed to take the youth t& Quantico when he approached Wolf in front of Miss Richoux’ house in Washington and told them he was a Marine who had no way of getting back to his base.
