ian On Hiss Never Doubted Verdict Of WASHINGTON ff Adlai E Stevenson said Monday he has never doubted the verdict of the jury which convicted Alger Hiss of lying when denied giving secrets Communists The subject came up at a news conference held by the ic presidential nominee who was told former President Truman had said he does not believe Hiss was a spy Stevenson also told the news conference that while he has been highly critical of administration foreign policy with particular misgivings about Middle East affairs he does not think it would be wise for him to comment on the present dangerous situation regarding the Suez Canal Hall Challenge On the Alger Hiss situation Stevenson's was called to the fact that Republican leaders such as GOP National Chairman Leonard Hall have challenged him to repudiate the views ex- pressed by Truman Hiss a former State ment official served almost four years in federal prison after he was convicted of perjury in ing he passed government secrets to a Soviet spy ring In Milwaukee on Sept 3 man was asked whether he regarded Hiss as a Communist spy He No When the matter raised Monday Stevenson said he would be very glad to comment on it Then he harked back to a ment he said he made during the 1952 campaign At that time venson said he made this No U.S Plan To Finance Detour I have repeatedly said I Can WASHINGTON AP Secretary of State Dulles said after a conference with President Eisenhower day that there is no can plan to finance the de- touring of the Suez Canal Dulles told reporters the United States is prepared to help finance through the Export-Import Bank in- creased exports of American oil to Western nations if transit through the canal is impractical or greatly di- minished Asked whether he was barring financial aid to other nations to help them transport oil around Africa and thus detour the canal Dulles said he and Eisenhower have planned only as a cy the financing of American oil exports We have not gone beyond that in our planning and we do not believe we will have Dulles said The secretary of state spent an hour with Eisenhower in advance of his scheduled departure later in the day lor London In London Dulles will pate in a meeting of 18 ments which failed in efforts to get Egypt to accept of the canal operations Dulles reiterated in a formal statement issued after his with the President that the United States is dedicated to seeking by peaceful means ance that the Suez Canal will ry out the international purpose to which it is dedicated by the convention of We are not however willing to accept for ourselves nor do we seek from other nations ance of an operating regime for the canal winch falls short of the rights granted to al users by the 1888 Dulles said He We are not trying to organize any boycott of the canal but we cannot be blind to the fact that conditions might become such that transit through the canal is im- practical or greatly diminished There must always be ways to insure the development of vital supplies particularly oil to Europe Accordingly we are carrying out planning as a dent precaution But our hope re- mains that satisfactory operating arrangements can be worked out with Egypt Calm Approach Dulles added that at London we will consider developments since the previous conference on the Suez adjourned Aug 23 and I hope find a calm approach to the future The earlier conference proposed internationalization of canal ations This was rejected by dent Nasser of Egypt Dulles was asked specifically about reports that the United States is ready to put up a half billion dollars to help western Eu- ropean countries finance the re- routing of their Middle East oil shipments In reply Dulles recalled that he told a news conference last week that if it became necessary to re- route tankers around the cape there would be a shortage of ers He said if there was not oil available from the Mid- dle East to meet the requirements of the Western nations export of American oil would be stepped up He said he was confident the Export-Import Bank would find it appropriate to assist in the ex- port of oil under those conditions Normal Procedure Dulles said that this would be merely normal procedure He said there had been no ment on any amount the bank might make available but he stressed that all that there is in the situation is the normal ity mat the bank might provide The government has called a meeting of representatives of state oil regulatory bodies here day for a discussion of a possible substantial increase in domestic oil production are that production could be stepped up by one million barrels a day over the barrels produced daily during the week ended Sept 8 the Republicans carry level the Farm Belt The senator said Eisenhower's scheduled visit to Iowa Friday will be of tremendous help to Republicans in the area As one of his campaign tasks this week Eisenhower will fly to Iowa Friday for the Field Days at Newton Eisenhower

driver owned As have never doubted the verdict of the jury which convicted him Record Must Rest Stevenson added Nothing has happened since then to change my views He went on to say that if that placed him in disagreement with Mr Truman that is where the record must rest Stevenson also said he didn't agree with Truman on application of word racketeers to of the Eisenhower Stevenson said he thought
