Their first secret meeting this afternoon was called for discussion of Russia's demand for a world disarmament conference and for a Big Five conference on world problems that would give Commu- nist China official status as a major world power. The ministers also were due to discuss how and when to take up the question of an independence treaty for Austria. The three Western ministers TODAY Ike Sure o Stand on Constitution Jy JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP WASHINGTON The Bricker amendment fight is something more than a political hassle about a great constitutional issue. It is the first serious test of President Eisenhower's new-style leadership, the end of the story is still to be told, but enough has already hap- pened to make the test remarkably impressive When the struggle began last were reported determined to con front Molotov with 5 three-point program: 1. They will meet with Red China only for discussion of such Asian issues as Korea and Indo- china, and only if the Peiping regime demonstrates good faith by cooperating first in a Korean settlement or else stops arming the Communist-led Vietminh reb- els in Indochina. What About Germany 2. The Big Four must fix a deadline for their fruitless discus- sions on Germany, unless Russia is ready to modify her demands. 3. All international attempts to bring about world disarmament must be within the United Nations. Molotov had proposed such a con- ference be held outside the inter- national organization, so Red China could attend. The conference moved out of East Berlin, where it met last week at the Soviet Embassy, in the wake of evidence that the 18 million East Germans again are stirring to a low boil against the Red occupation. Western agencies with thorough information networks in the East said 300 to 500 Germans had been jailed in the past week for speak- ing out openly against Soviet For- Stassen Leaving On Far East Visifr WASHINGTON Foreign aid chief Harold Stassen leaves Friday for a two-week visit to the Far East. Stassen's first step, according to his office, will be Tokyo next Sun- day. He will be joined there by Dr. Raymond Moyer, Far East regional director of the Foreign Operations Administration who went to the Orient about three weeks ago. Stassen will go to Seoul, Korea, j from Tokyo on Feb. 15. Three days later he will go to Taipeh, For- mosa, and on Feb. 19 to Saigon, Indochina. Stassen is scheduled to arrive Feb. 21 at Manila in the Philip- pines for a five day meeting with FOA officials of the Far East. Stassen is scheduled to begin his return to Washington Feb. 26. it Bush Pilots Save 6 in Crash of Air Force Plane CURRY, Alaska veteran Alaska bush pilots were credited today with saving the lives of six i men tumbled into the snow-covered As aDv Prospects for Ike's Program Appear Brighter Knowland Expects Substantial Portion to Pass WASHINGTON Know- and of California, the GOP Senate eader, said today the prospects for enactment of a substantial por- tion of President Eisenhower's leg- islative program are looking better all the time.

Hall, on an NBC tele- vision program yesterday, ex- pressed similar optimism about Lhe prospects not only for the legisla- tive program but for the Repub- licans' chances of picking up more congressional seats in the Novem- ber elections. Leadership Praised He said Eisenhower's leadership has given the party a tremendous lift and he expects a gain of 15 to 25 seats, after a campaign based on the President's "record ofi achievement."

Two of the other 16 men aboard the Air Force C47 when it left Elmendorf Air Force Base near Anchorage on the ill-fated flight were known dead. Eight were missing and bush pilot Cliff Hudson who with Don Sheldon was credited with effect- ng the rescue of the six survivors, said there was little chance any of the others were alive. The Air Force withheld names of the dead and missing pending notification of next of kin. The Air Force said Hudson and Sheldon saved the lives of the six who spent two nights and most of :wo days in subfreezing tempera- ture awaiting rescue after the wrecked two-engined transport was sighted. Hudson spotted the ate Friday. The following day success, he cited the St. Lawrenc seaway bill, approved by the Sen ate and a House committee.

Second, there was the more com- plex danger that the President, having decided that the Bricker amendment must be beaten, would tackle the job the wrong way. Firm But Not Rigid At bottom, the amendment is an expression of the distrust of the executive- power that 20 years of Roosevelt and Truman distilled in almost all Republicans and the majority of southern Democrats. Last year, the distrust was still intense, even although the White House had changed hands. That is the real reason why Sen. Brieker was able to get a full two-thirds of his fellow senators to act as his amendment's co-sponsors. If Eisenhower had tried to beat the amendment the wrong if he had been rigid and brutal and might still have defeated Sen. Bricker, But he would have ensured a maximum vote for Bricker. He would have had to depend on the Democrats and the Democrats alone to rescue him from the Republican extrem- ists. And within the Republican party, he would have generated the kind of bitterness and ill feeling that all the Democrats have been hopefully predicting. Instead, the President has been (Continued on Page 2, Column 4.) ALSOPS In their first two weeks of debate the four ministers had agreed on absolutely nothing. No one in the Western camp could say just how they would stop the oratory long enough to perhaps harvest some small gains. The West already had given up reunification and a peace treaty for Germany as a hopeless dream for years or even generations. There was no warning, he quot- ed the survivors.

He said, "If that is an endorse- ment, yes." He said he expects Communism to be an underlying issue in the 1954 elections. He said he thinks when the time comes for Eisenhower to consider seeking a second term there'll be a demand which he cannot es- cape." The Senate has put off until next week all votes on the constitutional treaty-power amendment by Sen. Bricker which has split party ranks. Knowland said there is some hope that the cooling-off period might produce progress to- ward a compromise. However, Brickel: left for a va- cation in Florida with the apparent idea that compromise efforts are over. He said he wants the Senate to vote up or down his most re- cent proposal, already termed un- acceptable by Knowland, before he j will enter any further, negotiations.

Plans to Seek Re-election as Chief Justice Burnquist Among Others Mentioned To Make Race By JACK B. MACKAY ST. PAUL W Chief Justice Roger L. Dell of the Minnesota Supreme Court today removed himself as a possible opponent for Sen. Hubert Humphrey and announced he will file for chief justice. Republican leaders had been exerting heavy pressure on -Judge Dell to make the senatorial race, especially since Dr. Charles W.

"It is indeed a high Judge Dell said, "to be mentioned as a candidate of one of the major political parties for United States ;enator.

It's no longer just the preoccupation of worried farm- ers, but has moved, quietly, into i the cities and towns. The water shortage varies in acuteness, depending on locality, but there are communities which have little over a month's supply left. At least one, in fact, has run Kan., 20 miles south- west of Kansas City. The, city's supply is ,due to be depleted today, with of the reservoir dropping below the intake pipe. Trucks will haul water from a learby lake while this, source iclds out, then arrangements are ;o be made for hauling it from Kansas City. No Relief in Sight Dr. Warren A. Kramer, chief of water supplies for the Missouri Health Division, said many towns already have reached the crisis tage, and there's no immediate relief in sight. For Kansas, too, the outlook is glum. A. D. Rqbb of the U.S. Weather Bureau in Topeka, described the general situation as explaining: "Good, gen- ral rains would be the only solu- ion. But our long-range forecast loesn't indicate them." Water for car washing and other pnessential use has been banned i some areas. Senate Moves On 2 Fronts in Coffee Probe By EDWIN B.

Dell left a lucrative law prac- tice in Fergus Falls to accept ap- pointment from Gov. Anderson as associate justice of the Supreme Court. He succeeded Justice C. E. Magney of Duluth, who retired. When Charles Loring retired as chief justice last July, the governor elevated Dell to the No. 1 post. District Judge Martin Nelson, Aus- tin, took Dell's place as associate justice. Before his appointment as jus- tice, Dell served as chairman of the Minneapolis St. Paul Metro- politan Airports Commission. He was appointed in 1951 by Gov. Luther Youngdahl. Pressure on Burnquist With Dell and Dr. Mayo out of the race, some Republican lead- ers are expected to exert more pressure on Atty. Gen. J. A. A. Burnquist.
