FOURTEEN PAGES SINGLE COPY 7 CENTS. Ike and Dulles Plan to Discuss Foreign Affairs President Reported Refreshed, Cheerful BULLETIN DENVER Lfl-President Eisen- hower resumed personal direction of U. S. foreign policy today in a conference with Secretary of State Dulles. The meeting, at Fitzsmimons Army Hosiptal, marked the Presi- dent's first conference with a mem- ber of his Cabinet since he was stricken with a heart attack Sept. 24. Dulles was at the hospital for an hour, but much of this time he was conferring with the President's doctors. The Eisenhower-Dulles confer- ence centered primarily around the agenda for the foreign ministers' meeting opening at Geneva later this month, which Dulles will at- tend. By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH DENVER (1ft President Eisen- hower awoke "refreshed and cheerful" this morning preparatory to holding his first government policy conference since his Sept. 24 heart attack. Ha arranged hospital meeting with Secretary of State Dulles to discuss internation- al affairs. The 7 a.m. (MST) medical bul- letin from the President's bedside reported: "The President slept soundly last night for eight hours. He feels refreshed and cheerj'ul this morn- ing. "His condition continues to pro- gress satisfactorily without compli- cations." The session with Dulles, dealing mainly with the Big Four foreign ministers' parley opening Oct. 27 in Geneva, marks the first presi- dential step back toward active di- rection of U. S. foreign policy. Advance indications were that Dulles would call on the President during the morning at Fitzsimons Army Hospital, spend about 15 minutes there, and then held a news conference at the Denver White House at Lowry Air Force Base. The secretary flew here Monday night from Miami. Fla., where he addressed the annual convention of the American Legion. He said there the United States will go to the Geneva foreign ministers con- ference with two sets of plans, one to meet any Russian obstruction and the other to exploit any genu- ine Soviet harmony moves. On arrival here aboard Eisen- hower's private plane Columbine III, Dulles told newsmen at the airport: "Just say my principal feeling at the moment is one of personal gladness that I shall be able to see the President again, and it is a very good sign that the doctors will let us have the kind of a con- ferences we'll have." Dulles got to Denver as the Pres- ident was ending another day of satisfactory progress in his slow a pace his phy- sicians now say will keep him in the hospital for at least four more and possibly five. It was a day during which he got outside for the first tune since he was stricken. His hospital bed was rolled onto a terrace near his eighth-floor room and he spent 30 minutes there basking in the warm autumn sunshine with a excellent view of the majestic Rocky Moun- tains to the west. It was a day too during which he handled the biggest batch of government business since he was taken ill. Late in the afternoon he 1. Chose Harold S. Vance, chair- man of the Executive Committee of the Studebaker-Packard Corp., to be a member of the Atomic Energy Commission.

Named Meyer Kestnbaum, head of the Hart, Schafner Marx clothing firm, to be a special White House consultant serving without pay. Kestnbaum was chair- man of the President's Committee on Federal-State Problems.

Gave recess appointments and promotions to two service officers. Rear Adm. Charles R. Brown, now on the Joint Strategic Survey Com- mittee, advances to vice admiral and becomes deputy commander and chief of staff of the U. S. At- lantic Fleet. Maj. Gen. Clyde D. Adenauer III, Has Pneumonia BONN, Germany Chancellor Konrad Adenauer has pneumonia, his doctors disclosed today. A special medical bulletin issued by two physicians said the 79-year- old West German government chief's "feverish bronchitis has beer, complicated by a light bron- chial pneumonia." This was the first indication that the Chancellor is seriously ill. He has been confined to his home for the past five days. A leader of Adenauer's Christian Democratic party said the Chan- cellor has been receiving daily penicillin injections. First announcements said Ade- nauer was suffering onlv from a cold. Intimates said he became chilled during a night drive from Luxem- bourg to Bonn last Wednesday after his daylong conference with French Premier Edgar Faure and Foreign Minister Antome Pinay on the Saar plebiscite. Adenauer is subject to colds and this is his second serious illness this year. Refinery, Blast Hurts 18 in Pennsylvania MARCUS HOOK, Pa.

Tale of Postal Firings is Labeled 'Distortion' Illegal and Political Actions Are Charged By Democrat Solon DETROIT (ffl Assistant Post- master General Norman R. Abrans today accused Sen. Olin D. Johnston (D-SC) of "downright dis- tortion of facts" in saying that postmasters have been fired by "illegal- and political" means. "This administration will more than welcome any objective in- quiry on the "illegal and political removal of postmasters' inferred in Johnston's irresponsible and reckless Abrams told a national convention of post- masters here. Johnston made his charges in a statement announcing a "sweep- ing investigation of the situation. Abrams asserted: "The actual facts are that since Jan. 20, 1953, a total of 538 post- masters, out of more than postmasters in the country, have beei removed. "Of these 538 removals, approxi- mately half, or 203, have been re- moved for embezzlement of funds. The remaining 335 postmasters were removed for poor manage- ment 164J, failure to devote re- quired time to duty outside sales to increase compensation il- legally falsification of rec- ords personal misconduct failure to answer official co- respondence theft of mail mistreatment of employes and illegal political activity "Not a one of the 538 jpostmas- ters removed was removed for po- litical reasons." DETROIT (B State Republican Chairman John Feikens says re- ports by Sen. Johnston (D-SC) that "Hitler-like tactics" arc being used to hire and fire postmasters by the Republican Party are "just a lot of nonsense." Johnston, speaking in Washing- ton Monday night, also said, "There is much evidence indicat- ing that the sale of rural mail carrier jobs in many areas is being used as a device to replenish the coffers of the local Republicn committees." Michigan was among several states Johnston mentioned as practicing the "tactics." Johnston also said he woulc thoroughly investigate the "illega and political removal of postmas ters" by the Republican Party. "The whole thing is a lot of non said Feikens in Detroit "If there is a vacancy in the pos office department, an acting post master is named by the local con he said. "Then a Civi Service exam is announced anc anyone is free to take it. From the top three scores in the exam a postmaster is picked. The con gressman hopes his choice is among them, but if he isn't, one o: the three must be chosen anyway "I don't see what Johnston is driving at because the job is com pletely open and anyone can apply." Johnston is chairman of the Sen ate post office and Civil Service committee. Gruenther Urges Single Command Integrate Air Forces, NATO Ministers Told By EDDY GDLMORE PARIS m Gen. Alfred M, Query Validity Of Dixon-Yates AEC Is Holding Up Cancellation Payment By JOE HALL WASHINGTON L. Strauss of the Atomic Energy Commission has conceded publicly for the first time that 'there may be a question as to the validity" of the Dixon-Yates contract. He said in an Oct. 7 letter made public Monday by Sen. Anderson ID-NM) that any cancellation pay- ment to the Dixon-Yates power roup is being held up while the question of validity is studied in- .ensively. Both Edgar H. Dixon and Eu- gene A. Yates, heads_ of the two major utility companies involved, renewed their contentions that the now-abandoned contract was a valid one. Anderson, chairman of the Sen- ate-House Atomic Energy Commit- ee, said in a statement that AEC noW appeared to be moving toward Eddieman becomes" V Ueutenant i the position he has maintained all along. He has contended it never was a binding obligation on the government, and that no cancella- tion fee was due Dixon-Yates. The AEC consistently has main- tained heretofore that the contract became legally effective some time last winter. The contract was negotiated by AEC last year at President Eisen- hower's direction. It called for a 107-million-dollar plant at West Memphis. Ark., to supply power to the Tennessee Valley Authority to replace TVA electricity and used elsewhere by AEC. On July 11 this year the Presi- dent directed that the contract be terminated and the AEC has been conducting negotiations looking to- ward a final settlement of the con- tract since that time. If it is bind- ing, the government is obligated to pay costs incurred by the Dixon- Hollister arrived by plane from I Yates group.

Gruenther today urged the free nations of Europe to integrate their air forces to meet any surprise at- tack by Russia. Speaking to the defense minis- ters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the supreme com- mander described the present air command system as "archaic." The integrated air force com- mand he advocated would allow the West to be alerted and get ofl the ground much faster than is possible now. Gruenther said the integrated command should be divided into four main areas: northern Euro- pean, central Europe, Mediter- ranean and Britain. Under the present NATO setup the various air forces are under national control. This also applies to civilian warning systems. A spokesman present at Gruen- ther's closed meeting with the ministers at his headquarters said the integrated plan has not been presented to all the countries in- volved. Gruenther told the ministers that in quality and quantity NATO was behind planned schedules, but added: If war should come today, Oct. 11, we probably would win, but can't guarantee this will always be the same in the future. The supreme allied commander said greater efforts, not lesser ef- forts, are needed. "If we get into a war, there's no prize for second he said. Lawmen Meet At Wakefield Upper Pen- insula Law Enforcement Officers Association will hold its quarterly meeting here, beginning with a banquet in the Legion clubrooms in the Memorial Building at p.m. (CST) Thursday. Wives and friends of the officers will be guests. The principal speaker will be George Sullivan, Iron County, Wis., district attorney of Hurley. Robert A. Burns, Wakefield, will be the toastmaster.

Struck Foundry Is Reopene Troops Patrol With Pickets France Debates Faure's Policy For North Africa Grudging Support Of Stand Is Expected By HARVEY HUDSON PARIS National Assem- bly turned its attention to troubled French North Africa today for the second time in less than a week, opening a three-day debate on Pre- mier Edgar Faure's plans to sup- press nationalist violence in Al- geria. With the Communists the only faction favoring the Algerian na- tionalists, Faure was expected to win a grudging endorsement for his policy of military action against the terrorists and guer- rillas. The Assembly has approved home rule for France's other North African territories, the protecto- rates of Tunisia and Morocco, but unlike them Algeria constitutional- ly is a part of France itself. The bulk of the deputies neither want to let the territory go nor give its eight million Moslems the same rights that the residents of European origin enjoy. The Algerian French, for exam- ple, elect 16 deputies to the French National Assembly while the than six times as only 12. One strong sentimental factor in Faure's favor was his withdrawal of France's delegation to the U. N. General Assembly- after it voted 2_8-27 to debate the Algerian situa- tion. The walkout was widely popu- lar in France, and the deputies would be reluctant to repudiate the government on any question con- nected with it. The grim daily reports of terror- ist activity in Algeria continued to flow across the Mediterranean. At Bouderbala a dozen rebels armed with tommy guns and rifles shot down a native municipal councilor in the market square. At Douar Souhalia 15 terrorists set a grocery store afire and cut a 17-year-old girl's throat.

In the other North African hot spot, Morocco, French business men and shopkeepers went back to work today after a 24-hour strike protesting the government's plans to meet the nationalist demands for home rule. The strike was par- ticularly effective in Casablanca, the protectorate's big port and commercjal center where strong- arm gangs of French toughs helped 10 close shops. Would Share Energy Source DETROIT making a new source of energy "have-not and limitless available to development of the peaceful atom promote international good vill and eliminate many basic, economic causes of war. These were the words of Dr. Detlav W. Bronk, president of the National Academy of Sciences, in Detroit Monday as he spoke to the economic Club of Detroit. Dr. Bronk, former University of Vlichigan physics instructor and resident of the Rockefeller Insti- ute, told the group: "Although we face an uncertain uture we must realize there is ecurity in growth but only a tro- phy of the spirit in the 'status quo'." He added, "There have always ieen dangers threatening freedom, )ut science will create a common pond, as it always has." Some of them reported an Ameri- qan soldier and four others claim- ing to be Americans or to have American connections were being held in Russian slave labor camps. The soldier was identified as Pvt. Sidney Ray Sparks, of Tenmlle, Ga., who escaped from an Army unit in West Berlin in 1951 while awaiting court martial.

The center of the storm skidded by 70 miles east of Tokyo, just off the Pacific Coast. Tokyo streets were sprayed with shattered window glass, houses were flooded and electric power failed. One returnee to West Berlin listed these others held by the So- viets: 1. Bob Goldman, son of an Es- tonian father and an American mother, who said he was para- chuted into Estonia as a U. S. spy in 1946, arrested in 1947 and sen- tenced to 25 years. 2. Jack Goralski, who claimec he was an American left-winger who went to the Soviet Union vol- untarily and was sentenced as a spy. 3. George Green, son of Levir Green of Los Angeles, who saic ho went to Moscow in 1946 as a journalist with his sister Leah. Green said he and his sister were arrested in 1948 as spies. Green was sentenced to 25 years and sent to the Vorkuta camp near the Urals, while his sister went to Siberia. 4. Vladimir Golowski Jr., a So- viet citizen who said he emigrated with his father to Shanghai. Go- lowski said he returned voluntarily to Russia when World War I] broke out while his father became a ,U. S. Army colonel and now is living in San Francisco. The son said the Russians arrested him as a spy and sentenced him to 25 years. U. S. officials in Washington said Green and his sister were Soviet citizens. American officials in West Berlin and West Germany said they had never heard of Goldman, Goralski or Golowski.

This was announced in Bridge- port, Conn., Monday night by a pokesman for General Electric's mall appliance division. He said a ecent decision of the State Su- ireme Court puts a new interpre- ation on the law, and "as it now tands, the Michigan Fair Trade aw is practically unforceable, and Jaces the dealers which signed ontracts with us in an untenable osition." The GE spokesman said the com- panys new, policy applied only to Michigan, and would not affect pol- cies in other states. He said it ap- lied in Michigan only to small ap- liances, such as toasters and elec- ric blankets, and did not apply to large appliances like stoves, refrig- erators and television sets. Under the Federal Fair Trade act, a manufacturer may make an agreement with dealers not to sell certain items below a fixed price, called a "fair trade" price. In Chicago, Sunbeam Corp. said it will continue to enforce its fair trade contracts in Michigan. R. P. Grimm, president of Sunbeam, said his firm will "resist by every law- ful means within our power all il- legal interference' with the firm's fair trade contracts. The Toastmaster Products Divi- sion of Me Graw Electric Co. also announced in Chicago that it will attempt to enforce fair trade agree- ments. The Michigan Supreme Court in a 4-3 decision Oct. 3 reiterated previous decisions that businesses which do not sign a fair trade agreement are free to undercut the fixed price.

The company said 67 plant work- ers and 17 office workers entered the foundry, and Chesley Juday, plant manager, said production will be resumed Wednesday for the first time since the riot. Other Perfect Circle plants re- mained open without incident in nearby Hagerstown and Richmond. Almost National Guard troops, imposing martial law, pro- tected all of New Castle and Hag- erstown and the two plants at Rich- mond. Four tanks sat on the foundry parking lot here, facing the plant, where about 90 nonstrikers were evacuated by state police last Wednesday after an exchange of shots that woundec. eight persons. Half a dozen guardsmen carrying rifles walked patrols outside the foundry fence. Only five pickets, without pla- cards, marched quietly at the foun- dry gate, contrasted win an es- timated sympathizers who touched off the riot last week which prompted Gov. George N. Craig to send in guardsmen. The CIO United Auto Workers union has been on strike against Perfect Circle here and at Hagers- town and Richmond, Ind., since July 25 in a contract dispute.

Cars were lined bumper-to-bump- er for blocks on main thorough- fares, moving at a snail's pace, The and traffic clogged intersections electric traffic signals were turned off and policemen took over at many points. Parking lots overflowed in down- town St. Louis and harried drivers had difficulty finding parking space. Policemen were ordered to be lenient with violators of park- ing regulations. The strike threat arose with the announcement late Monday of the findings of a panel named to ar- pitrate a contract dispute. The find- ags were not binding, and the un- ion promptly rejected them. This came too late for newspap- ers Monday and thousands started x> work this morning unaware a strike was on. The transit system normally is used by some persons.

Russell McElroy of Birmingham, the special judge who already has presided at the murder trials of two other men indicted in the Patterson killing scheduled a hearing here Friday on a habeas corpus petition seeking bond for Garrett while he is await ing trial. Some legal sources contend the case against Garrett was seriously weakened by the acquittal of an other murder defendant, Arch Ferrell, former solicitor for Russel County. Former Chief Deputy Sherif Albert Fuller, indicted for first- degree murder with Garrett anc Ferrell, was convicted last spring and is now serving a life sentence, Tour for Nixon May Be Shelved Many Factors Govern Trip to Middle East WASHINGTON ob- servers saw no prospect today that Vice President Nixon's now-post- poned trip to the Middle East anc Africa ever will take place. They saw that result stemming from a number of factors, includ- ing President Eisenhower's illness, a more" touchy diplomatic situation in the Middle East, and Nixon's own potential role in advance oi next year's presidential election. Presidential Press Secretary James C. Hagerty announced the postponement Monday. He said would remain in this coun- ;ry to preside over meetings of the Cabinet and the National- Security -ouncil while the President recu- perates. He told newsmen he could not say whether the trip would be rescheduled later. But observers saw little likeli- lood that Nixon would be leaving he country for any length of time even after the President recovers. Some diplomatic observers re- marked that the Middle Eastern situation has grown so much more critical since Nixon's tour first was jroposed as to raise a question as o whether it should have been undertaken in any case. law for New it to include Viargaret Truman Home, Denies She Is Engaged NEW YORK Tru- man returned today from a two- month vacation in Eurppe and once more denied that she is engaged or expects to be.

No curfew was imposed. The governor's order of full mar- tial law was protested by the UAW, which called it "putting property rights above human rights."

The foundry, which has a nor- mal work force of 260, had about 100 workers inside last Wednesday when an estimated strike sj-mpathizers demonstrated out- side. Shots were fired from both sides. The foundry previously had been closed by pickets but had been re- opened under a court order limit- ing the number of pickets to five. The Hagerstown and Richmond plants have been operating with part of their work force. Petitions for decertification of the UAW at Hagerstown and Rich- mond are on file with the National Labor Relations Board.
