bills Three on desk Neutrality definition is puzzler Big obstacle at Geneva By DON COOK New York Herald Tribune News Service GENEVA Now that the Laos conference is under way the world should begin to find out before very long whether the great central historic purpose for which 14 nations have gathered in Geneva can be realized That historic purpose is not so simple as merely arranging peace or armistice or a permanent ceasefire in Laos Much broader than that the great powers and their supporters and gobetweens have come to Geneva to try to find an answer tP a question on which the fate of much more than Laos may well hang THE QUESTION is this Can the Communist half of the world agree with the nonCommunist powers on a formula for neu trality for small states which both sides would accept as genuine and both would pledge to maintain and support If Laos can become a sort of pilot model of defined and ac cepted neutrality agreed by East and West then this Geneva con ference may turn out to be much more historic and farreaching than most of the meetings which have been held in this city of lost hopes Although Austrian neutrality is often held up in discussion here as an example of EastWest agreement on the issue the ex ample does not really apply be cause of the vast difference in the nature of the two problems Austria in the middle or Europe was a country with a stable antiCommunist govern ment which wanted nothing but a Russian withdrawal from its ter ritory in return for which it was perfectly willing to ensure its own neutrality between East and West LAOS IS A small jungle land of 2000000 population so far not oc cupied by any of the great powers with a notoriously un stable political history and in a pathetic state of underdevelop ment Where in the

Legislature The vetoes were his fourth and fifth One of the bills would hav required reorganization of the State Central Committees of both political parties because o a reduction from eight to seven in the number of congressiona districts in the state The other bill vetoed would make changes in the Iowa Su preme Courts rules of civil pro cedure IN HIS VETO message on the reorganization measure Erbe said the existing statutory pro cedure for the selection of mem bers of the State Central Com mittee of both parties is entire ly adequate to properly dispose of any minor problems which may arise because of the loss of a congressman and the retluc jtion of the congressional dis tricts The governor said specific provisions of the measure if en acted would only tend to pro mote confusion as to the par ticular application in the selec tion of succeeding members of the committees Erbe said of the bill revising civil procedure that the recom i mended changes in the measure i would only serve to thwart ex peditious administration of jus tice in this state THE GOVERNOR said the ef feet of the bill would have been to nullify changes in the rules of civil procedure recommended EXKRESGE HEAD DIES DETROIT Mich UP Daniel C Fisher 77 president of S S Kresge Co from 1946 until his retirement in 1953 was killed Tuesday when his car struck a tree Police said he apparently N own neutrality through a treaty the reverse is the a heart attack in Laos It is to keep opposing great power military forces out of j the country and then agree fromj the outside to maintain Laos as aj neutral and independent state1 What Austria could do for herself j the great powers are trying to agree to do for Laos It is not going to be a simple exercise Semantics alone tend to defeat agreement because neither the United States nor the Soviet Union really means the same thing when it uses the word and certainly there is not much trust on either side in the intentions of the other at this conference by a group of distinguished members of the bench and bar of the State of Iowa following a long study based upon the need for changes disclosed by experience in Iowas court rules The Governor however signed one of six bills consid ered controversial That propos al would increase semitrailer truck permit fees from to a year This left three controversial measures on the Governors desk He has until June 9 to de cide whether to sign them into law or veto them They are bills to change the way in which the highway com mission can acquire property for controlled access roads grant an additional exemption from the two per cent use tax to cer tain manufacturers and alter the retirement systems of city policemen and firemen MOTORCYCLE ESCORT AS FREEDOM RIDERS BUS ARROW LEAVES MONTGOMERY ALA

in both sides in a truly neutral Laos From the standpoint of the United States there is certainly no prac tical political or strategic interest in armed intervention by Ameri can forces in a jungle land with no access by sea The Russian interest in neutral Laos is more difficult to reason or ascertain but in the French view it has its roots in RussianChinese rivalry The Russians do not want to see a further expansion of Chinese suzrainty the French thesis runs and accordingly it is to Russias interest to get agreement here in Geneva on a neutral Laos in or der to keep the Chinese out There remains of course the vital question of what sort of a government Laos is to have If the country goes Communist from in side what good is a neutrality agreement The only answer is the fact that there seems to be no alternative in this situation but to try neutrality and hope that it works Kennedy to address Congress WASHINGTON President Kennedy will ap pear before a joint session of Congress Thursday to deliver in person his plea for increased federal spend ing on space military and foreign aid programs Thai proposal supported GENEVA The United States supported a Thai proposal to add
