Paul Ely was expected to ask President Eisen- hower today for more American planes to bolster the fight against attacking Communist troops in In- dochina. Informed sources said Ely is looking particularly for B26 bomb- ers, C119 transports and helicop- ters. He also may suggest the as- signment of more Air Force tech- nicians to service the planes. Ely was invited to the House after an early morning con- ference with Adm. Arthur W. Rad- ford, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff. He had a date for lunch with Defense Secretary Charles E. Wil- son and other American military .leaders and a brass-tacks meeting with the full joint chiefs was set for this afternoon. As the conferences got under- way, both American and French officials emphasized there is "noth- ing to be alarmed about" and that they are actually "optimistic" AIR TRAGEDY TAKES LIVES OF 18 SERVICEMEN chute-shrouded bodies at lift are some of the 18 servicemen killed when this twin-engined C-119 crashed in flames on a farm near Annapolis, Md. Wreckage of the ship was scattered over several acres. Belonging to the 74th Troop Carrier Squadron based at Ard- more, Okla., it had stopped at Boiling Air Force Base near Washington, D.

(Continued on Page Three) Weather Favors Indochina Reds HANOI, Indochina 'defenders of Dien Bien Phu feared today that bad weather will tip the balance in favor of Communist forces attacking the Indochinese bastion. Heavy rams which turned the fortress's dust bowl into a sea of yellow mud failed to slow down Communist artillery, which opened up with heavy salvoes at dawn. A French spokesman said the weather problem would be "cru- cial in the critical days ahead. Continued rainfall would h al t French air strikes at Communist iroops and prevent the flying-in of reinforcements ana" supplies to the garrison. Bad weather also would give the Communists, who greatly outnum- ber the French, a chance to make an all-out bid to take the fortress A French hign command spokes- man said the Communists were digging trenches with the hope that they might be able to inch forward toward the besieged garrison.

Maurice L. Schick today to try to deter- mine if he was insane when an "urge to kill" led him to strangle a 9-year old girl. The four psychiatrists were giv- en only one day for the examina tion and court martial law officer Marvin Ludington said the case "positively will go to trial Wednesday. Defense attorney Maj. Harlow Huckabee of Mt. Royal, Va., asked for a two months delay so Dr. Winfred Overholzer, supervisor of the St. Elizabeth Hospital in Wash- ington, D.C., could come here and make the examination. Ludington denied the request and ordered a one-day adjournment in- stead. Huckabee had told" the court "in order to defend this case ade- quately a civilian defense psychia- trist is absolutely essential."

P .Graham, 18, scheduled to enter the Army today, hanged himself sometime after midnight in a jail cell where he was confined follow- ing an auto accident.

The physicists reported that the Geiger counter in their laboratory had shown an extraordinary high count on March 3, two days after the device was set off miles away. Between p.m. and 5 p.m., counts on the indicator jumped from an average of 40 to 50 to a peak of 225. At no time before or after did the counter show such activity, a survey disclosed. Physics specialist Kiichi Kimura said "the first question that should be solved is whether the w in d would blow with such continuous velocity that makes it cover the distance between the Bikini atoll and Japan in two days." Kimura's announcement came as the administration's opposition par- ty, the Rightist Socialists, said it NARROW ESCAPE Chavez Senate Seat Seen Secure GOP'No Contest' Resolution Seen Certain to Lose Neither Candidate Is Accused of Any Wrongdoing WASHINGTON Republi- can leaders were privately gloomy about their chances of unseating Sen. Dennis Chavez (D-NM) as the Senate launched debate today on a GOP resolution declaring bis election "no contest." The Democrats, on the other hand, were optimistic about being able to beat down the Republican move and formally to remove the longstanding threat to Chavez' position in the senate. Sen. Thomas C. Hennings Jr., lone Democrat on the elections subcommittee which in- vestigated the disputed 1952 Sen- ate race in New Mexico, said he is confident "an overwhelming majority of senators" will vote to reject the GOP resolution. Sen. Frank A. Barrett (R-Wyo) chairman of the three-man sub- committee, countered that th'e Sen- ate "cannot overlook the report filed by our committee." That report, written by the Re- publican majority, said the group's investigation showed widespread violation of election laws in the battle between Chavez and his perennial Republican opponent, (Continued on Page Nine) (Coni'niicd on Pace cell at Second District Jail.

At least, reporters will question iim again on, McCarthy's charges when the 1952 Democratic presi- dential candidate holds a joint Dress conference with Gov. Robert B. Meyner at the state capitol in Trenton. Stevenson said Saturday he would not "stoop to the level" of McCarthy by replying to the charges which the Wisconsin Re- publican made Friday night in a speech at Milwaukee. However, in connection with one charge in the he "was given the task of formulating America's postwar policy for Italy" and sought to bring Communists into the Italian Steven- son said it was "the first time I ever heard about it."

Supporters Doubt Ike Will Retire President Expected To Change Mind in '56 By LYLE C. WILSON WASHINGTON Eisenhower has been telling White House visitors that one term is enough, that he does not choose to run in 1956. The famous Eisenhower grin disappears when the subject of an- other term comes up. A deadly serious President explains that he would be 70-years-old at the end of a second term, and that he does not intend to carry the burdens of office into those latter years. It is fair to say that Republican politicians generally are unim- pressed by Mr. Eisenhower's mid- term disavowal of second term plans. Some of them have heard it before from other presidents. Few would doubt Mr. Eisenhower's sincerity. But they don't believe he can make it stick nor that he really will feel that way in the spring of 1956 when he surveys the accomplishments and failures of a first term.

Mundt. South Dakota Republican who is in charge of the inquiry, said the lie detector idea will be taken up Tuesday when the sub- committee meets to lay plans for its full-dress invvestigation. He also indicated he might be able today to reveal the name of the "nationally promiment attor- ney" who has tentatively agreed to serve as the subcommittee's special counsel during the inquiry.

Weatherman Fails To Watch Calendar By UNITED PRESS Winter, like the weekend guest who doesn't know its Monday, still hung around today. With spring officially here, below-f r e e z i n g temperatures chilled the East from Maine to Virginia, the Midwest .from the Great Lakes to the Mississippi Val- ley and much of the Plains and Mountain states. The only 60-degree. springlike weather was confined to southern Florida and Texas, the weather bureau reported. A band of light snow fell across the Dakotas into Minnesota, with numerous flurries over the Rockies. Light ram fell in Southern Cali- fornia, Arizona and western New Mexico. Most of the real of the West, except Oregon and Washing- ton, was cloudy at the best. In the East, though, skies were generally fair.
