Mindszenty Budapest Hungary bishop Josef Groesz successor to Cardinal Mindszenty as head of the Roman Catholic church in Hungary pleaded guilty Friday to plotting against this countrys communist government and to other charges The archbishop and 8 others went on trial before Judge Vil mos Olti who headed the court which convicted Cardinal Mind zenty of similar charges and sent the primate to prison for life Voeeler Here It was the same courtroom ii which the cardinal confessed anc was tried and it was the same judge and the same courtroomin the case of American businessman Robert A convicted of spying and later released from prison Thus the westfaces thepuzzle of another in the long series of confessions by defendants in communist courts Some believe these confessions are extracted by physical torture or through the use of drugs Others think they are obtained simply by constant and skillful questioning over lonj hours without food and sleep Vogeler released recently branded his confession rubbish He said he was worn down physically and mentally Disappear Defendants in communist trials disappear from public view from the time of their arrest until they appear before their judges Re porters and friends are barred from talking with them They are not allowed lawyers of their own choice and those assigned custom arily reinforce their clients con fessions by adding to them The courtroom which has space for only about 150 spectators was heavily guarded The spectators including diplomats of communist nations and even one from Yugo slavia had to produce admission tickets to enter the courtroom The 9 defendants each guarded by two wardens sat motionless on benches as the court opened They stood at attention when the judge entered Eight of them men of

the judge who then read an indictment 12 pages long accusing the defendants of organizing a plot to overthrow the Hungarian gov ernment and restore the kingdom of the Hapsburgs This was the principal charge against Cardinal Mindszenty in 1949 U S Indicated Five accused are charged with having led the plot to over throw the state two others with participating in the plot One de fendant is accused of murder The charges also include spying on behalf of an imperialist power obviously meaning the United States and black market currency dealings In addition many lesser offenses were listed in the indictment Prospects Fade for Peace Talk By JOHN RODERICK Paris faded Fri day for a big 4 conference on the worlds war jitters Sixteen weeks of attempts by deputy foreign ministers of Brit ain France the Soviet Union and the United States to draw up an agendacollapsed Thursday night The western powers told Russia boldly there was no point in con tinuing their fruitless meetings They added however they hopec Russia would see her way clear to attend the proposed big four conference despite the fact the deputies failed to agree on what should be discussed The west has tentatively pro posed that the conference take place in Washington July 23 Little Progress The 4 deputies had made some progress in compiling a list o general subjects to be discussed They were hopelessly deadlocked however over whether the North Atlantic treaty and American overseas military bases shoulc occupy a formal place in the con ference negotiations The 3 western deputies opened the final meeting 74th since March with a joint declaration which said Russias insistence on putting the treaty up for debate shows the contin uation of this discussion has no practical utility They indicated any further ex changes would have to be on the government level Soviet Deputy Andrei Grbmyko appeared perplexed and then a bit shaken by the declaration He asked whether it meant the depu ies conference was over Another Critique When Britains Ernest Davies replied in the affirmative Gromy to pulled a bulky typewritten manuscript from his brief case and read a two hour and 40 min ute criticism of the west He then quoted Prime Minister Josef Stalins February interview n Pravda which said Russia is ollowing a course designed to pre vent war and maintain peace for all peoples The deputies had agreed on a number of items for the ministers o discuss These include German demilitarization a treaty of inde pendence for Austria asserted vio ations of Italian Romanian and Bulgarian peace treaties the fu ure of Trieste and the reduction and control of armaments The west thinks that is enough for one conference and if Russia still wants to talkfabout the North Atlantic treaty it can do so un der thegeneral
