In brief, the active reconnais- sance of this continent by the So- viet equivalent of a wing of TU- 4s, or perhaps two wings, moved into new bases on Kamchatka, across the Bering Strait from Alaska. Since then, the air recon- naissance has been going forward. Four claimed contrails, which are the vapor trails left by air- craft flying at altitude, have been sighted in recent months. Of these claimed sightings, two have been dismissed after careful investiga- tion as probably the result of spe-1 cial atmospheric conditions and cloud effects. But two others, one j on the north Alaskan coast and one in northern Canada, are held to have been the genuine traces of Soviet air reconnaissance mis- sions. And the Alaskan sighting, at least, is further held to have been confirmed by the evidence of I the radar net. More Information Needed This development both is and is not a cause for deep concern. To begin with the sedative arguments, this air reconnaissance of our con- tinent which the Soviets have now started is only the equivalent of what we have been doing for some time past. Our long-range aircraft have been flying reconnaissance operations on the Siberian coast since before Korea: and they have gone in far enough for intercep- tion to be attempted on more than one occasion. Equally, there can be very little doubt that the Navy Privateer shot down over the Bal- tic a couple of years ago was also on reconnaissance duty. j In the case of the best-confirm-1 ed Soviet venture into our that in northern is; even some doubt about whether j the Russian four-motored bomber passed the off-shore line where itj had a right to fly.

In short, even though Cana- dian territory was certainly violat- ed if the second probable sighting genuine, there is nothing im- mediately warlike in this new de- velopment.

Its most important action reportedly was a new provision, adopted 17 to 5, to drop a price regulation requiring certain reports from dealers who sell at below-ceiling prices. Red Prisoner Resistance on Koj'e Broken Communists in Six Compounds Transferred By ROBERT B. TUCKMAN KOJE ISLAND, Korea Gen. Haydon L. Boatner indicated j today the resistance of Koje Is- land's once-defiant Red war prisoners has been broken. 'The thing here actually is the tough prison camp com- mander told reporters after three more prisoner compounds bowed meekly to United Nations author- ity. Six of Koje's 17 stockades of stubborn, Red-led prisoners have been emptied during Boatner's op- eration breakup. Inmates of a sev- enth today signified willingness to obey orders.

And even the production of night fighter-interceptors is being cruelly slowed by low priorities. A previous series of reports in this space presented the o: this huge problem. In brief, a spurt of progress with such guided mis- siles as the Army's has suddenly made it possible to build a truly effective American air de- fense. But even '''Nike" has not yet been ordered in very great quantities. And no effort is being made to speed production of the other promising missiles, Air Force and Navy as well as Army designed, which will also be need ed. Essentially, this is because an all-out effort to build a truly effec- tive American air defense will de- mand additional capital outlays of somewhere between billion and Slo billion. The congressional ap- proach to the defense budget al- ready shows the clearest signs of election year madness; and no one wants to talk about large new pro- grams which have not been ab- solutely tested. The trouble is that if an all-out effort is delayed for another year, the completion of the air defense of this country will also be delayed by a year.

This and any other conflict between the two bills would have to be worked out at a Senate- House conference, if the House ap- proves the banking committee version. The WSB, under the change, could enter a labor controversy only if both sides asked and if the Federal Mediation Service said all its remedies had failed. Also, its powers would be limited to wage and other money issues.

Other prisoners scaled barbed wire fences, or held back from their groups to ask guards to sep- arate them from the Communists. WEATHER FEDERAL FORECAST Winona and ble cloudiness tonight.

LOCAL WEATHER Official observations for the 24 Ike Woos Fine at Gettysburg Picnic By LEONARD A. UNGER GETTYSBURG, Pa. Dwight D. Eisenhower provided a picnic atmosphere today for the job of wooing Gov. John S. Fine and the pivotal Pennsylvania Republican delegation into his presidential camp. The five-star general threw open his 189-acre farm on the fringe of this historic Civil War battleground for a shirt-sleeves outing with the Keystone State's 70 delegates and their alternates. Eisenhower's first face-to-face meeting with the bulk of the dele- gation will follow a pattern he adopted in New York. That is, of- fering himself for questioning on issues involved in the presidential race. Although newsmen have been in- vited to the farm, they have been asked to leave during the ques- tioning.

BARRETT WASHINGTON Hicken- looper (R-Iowa) today announced a new drive to ban sending troops to Europe without the consent of Congress. As East-West tension increased in Germany, Hickenlooper said a strong effort will be made to write such a reservation into Senate ap- proval of peace treaties with West Germany. The Iowa senator, a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, told a reporter he believed the treaties could be interpreted ax giving the President power to send more troops abroad at will. Chairman Connally (D-Tex) of the Senate Foreign Relations Com- mittee said the treaties carry no such provision or implication. He added the German pactn should not be used to revive the troops-for-Europe issue, subject of tie three-month "great debate" in the Senate last year. Sen. Wiley senior Re- publican on the committee, agreed with Connally. Collin, Cilltd The Foreign Relations Commit- tee today called Gen. J. Lawton Collins, Army chief of staff, for its fourth day of hearings on treaties. The committee expects to conclude sessions next Tuesday or Wednesday and send the pacts to the Senate floor before July 7. The treaties would end the Allied occupation of West Germany restore almost full sovereignty. to that nation. They would bring West Germany into a single-uniform Eu- ropean army, tied closely to the North Atlantic Pact forces now headed by Gen. Matthew B. Ridj- way. They must be ratified by nations involved. The administration is teekinf prompt Senate approval in the hopes this would set an for the legislative bodies of European countries. The Senate was locked in bitter argument for months last year over whether the President could send more troops to Europe with- out congressional approval. The Senate finally passed a reso- lution approving the sending of four more divisions, as planned by President Truman, but indicated the Senate preferred that congres- sional consent would be required to send any more. Six now are stationed in Europe. Ntw As new debate on the loomed, Communists clamped tight "security zone" around Ber- lin. Police were ordered to shoot to kill violators. Hickenlooper said the proposed reservation on the troops issue would provide that the treaties in no way authorize the President to send American troops to an inter- national army without the consent of Congress. He said this would be more bind- ing upon the President than last year's Senate resolution because it would be, in effect, a condition to putting the treaties into operation.

Today at the American Medical Associa- tion convention he took time he always seems to have to tell secrets for health and long life. In London, he began, he was talking with Lord Horaer, as fa- mous in British melicine as Fish- bein is here. Dr. Fishbein con- gratulated Lord Border on looking so well and being so active at 82. "Lord Horder asked me, 'how old are "I'm 62, I said. He leaned over the table and felt my pulse, 'You will live to be 100." I replied, And lord Horder said, 'Because you have imperturbability.'

But I would hate to see a world where everyone walked away from argu- ments that produced facts by discussion." Dr. Fishbein, whose fame rests partly upon his energetic and sometimes stormy years as former editor of the AMA Journal, then recited "the five lows" for health and longer life. 1. Low blood pressure. 2. Low pulse rate. 3. Low basal metabo- lism, or rate of bodily processes. 4. Low diet, low in total calories. 5. Low threshold for humor.
