Town Mad Bomber Hunted in Boston Explosion 2 Schools See Soviet Insistence on Berlin Terms Gromyko Declares Chiefs Should Talk, Settlement or No By JOHN HIGHTOWER GENEVA For- eign Minister Andrei A. Gro- myko opened a drive in the Big Four conference today to break the Western-made link between the present meeting of foreign ministers and a late summit conference. Gromyko's attack could foreshadow a fina! refusal by the Soviet Union to yield on its West Berlin demands, even under heavy Western pressure. He told foreign ministers of the United States, Britain and France that their insist- ence on a link between the present conference and a summit parley is artificial and "altogether invalid." In effect, Gromyko argued that even though there was a failure here to ease the Berlin tension and make progress toward East-West agreement, there should be a summit meeting anyway. President Eisenhower has said he would not attend a heads-of-government meeting under such conditions, andai. the moment that is basic Western policy.

Animal Rescue League officials said the owners of the two ware- house on one side and a two-story apartment on the permission to tear out brick to reac'n the puppy. When opera- tions were suspended Thursday night, league offi- cials were planning to go to court. But today W. B. Merrill, manager of the Washing- ton Animal Rescue League, said the puppy showed no signs of life, and the plan was given up. Now it is planned to pull out the body with a foon and pole. measures were tried while the little animal was still alive, but were abandoned for fear of crushing the puppy at nar- row points in the crevice.
