The European army plan was killed by France. France now is pressing for wi- dened British commitments to some new form of European de- fense setup which would eventual- ly include German troops. The La bor party resolution raises the threat of new obstacles to any such scheme. The resolution suggests that whatever common policy eventual- ly is formulated by Europe's So- cialist parties should "consider how arrangements can best be (Continued on Page Six) Square D.

Democrats Choose Harriman; FDR Jr. Is Loser NEW YORK Har- riman was nominated unanimous- ly today as Democratic candidate for governor of New York but only after a bitterly fought campaign that theatened for a time to split the party. Harriman's battle with Rep. Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr. for the nomination ended before delegates to the state convention had com- pleted their first ballot. With the count standing at 541 Harriman to 217 for Roosevelt, the namesake so., of the late Presi- dent dramatically stepped to the rostrum and asked "that the nom- ination of my old friend Averell Harriman be made "inimous." Harriman needed only 510 votes to win. Immediately after F-irriman's nomination Democratic party lead- ers met behind closed doors to decide" on possible running mates for the offices of lieutenant gov- ernor, comptroller, attorney gen- eral and lesser offices. Harriman, New Deal trouble shooter in both the Roosevelt and Truman administrations and for- mer mutual security administrator, will oppose U.S. Sen. Irving M. Ives for the governorship. Ives is certain of the Republican nomina- tion to succeed retiring G o v Thomas F. Dewey.

After the meeting the mayor stated that he had called an of- ficial meeting of the board for p. m. today, at which time it will organize and consider appointing a new city sanitarian. Mayor Norris said he hoped the board, after reviewing a list of ap- licants, would hire a sanitarian to- night to succeed Karl K. Sherrets Jr., who resigned last June. The board was scheduled to hold a meeting last evening, but it was called off when the mayor realized it could not conduct official busi- ness without the new members being approved by council. He then called a special meeting of council to consider his appointments. The mayor said the sanitarian's salary as set up in the city's 1955 budget is a year. New members of the board are Ear!

Attlee Wants to Get Rid of Chiang as Soon as Possible Tuesday LONDON British Prime Minister Clement Attlee re- turned home today from a tour of Communist China and advised the West to scuttle Nationalist leader Generalissimi Chiang Kai-Shek and his Formosa-based troops. "Personally Attlee said, "the sooner we get rid of Chiang Kai-Shek and his troops the better it will be." The 71-year-old leader of the British Labor Party said Chiang's Formosa base is the biggest head- ache in the Far East "and a big hindrance to Chinese cooperation with more peaceful methods." During his tour of the East, Att- lee traded toasts with Soviet Premier Georgi Malenkov in Mos- cow and drank tea in Peiping with Red China's chief of state Mao Tse-Tung. Attlee was the last of the eight Labor Party leaders who toured Red China to return home. The others arrived Thursday. Silent on Criticism Attlee offered no comment of American criticisms of the tour, but he said: "I do think a relaxation of ten- sions has occurred following Ge- neva (the conference which ended the Indochina and our visit of course has assisted that." The Laborites had billed their trip as a fact-finding tour on which they hoped to learn about condi-! tions behind the Bamboo Curtain, j At one point Mao Tse Tung j sought to convince his visitors that i they should try to persuade the j United States to withdraw the enth Fleet from protecting For- mosa and abandon re-armament for West Germany and Japan. Att- lee countered that the Chinese Reds should ask the Soviet Union to be- gin disarming. Moscow roundly de- j nounced this idea. i 'Joe Must Go' Club Faces Charge of Corrupt Practice MADISON, Wis. Judge Bruce Beilfuss has refused to dismiss a 21-cou.nt indictment brought under the state corrupt practices act against the "Joe Must Go" Club. Beilfuss ruled Tuesday there was sufficient evidence to file the charges against the club, which tried unsuccessfully to recall Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy. District Attorney Harlan Kclley of Sauk County has charged the club with violating the state Cor- rupt Practices Act by sending funds from its state headquarters to local chapters for use in trying to unseat McCarthy. Kelley recently failed in the Wis- consin primary to win renomina- tion. His rejection by voters was viewed as resulting from his at- tempt to prosecute the club.

Rhodes' Turnpike Blast Brings Lausche Retort Supreme Court To Hold Hearing On Segregation Start Dec. 6 on History-Making School Decision WASHINGTON The Su- preme Court announced today it will begin hearings Dec. 6 on de- tailed decrees to enforce its his- toric ruling outlawing segregation in public schools. The court also announced that it has extended until Nov. 15 the deadline for interested states to file briefs or to request a chance to be heard in the December oral arguments. The previous deadline was Oct. l. Seven states have akeady noti- fied the court they want to appear either in oral arguments or as in- terested parties at the hearing. They are North Carolina, Arkan- sas, Texas, Florida, Maryland, Tennessee, and Oklahoma. Question for debate is how and when the Supreme Court will issue final orders for ending segregation of white and Negro students. In handing down the anti-segre gation ruling last spring, the court took note of its sweeping socio- political impact and took the un- usual step of postponing actual en- forcement decrees until after fur- ther hearings. One of the big questions to be settled at the December session is whether states which now practice segregation should be given a sub- stantial "grace period" in which to comply with the ruling. Call Senate Back fo Consider M'Carfhy Censure WASHINGTON (UP) Senate leaders have agreed to call upper chamber back into session as soon as possible to deal with the McCarthy censure resolution, informed sources reported today. The date is not yet definite but they said that the senators may be told to report to the Capital as early as the middle of next week, This predictionis based on the expectation that the six-man com- mittee studying the censure charges against Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy will complete its work by this weekend. There has been considerable speculation that the explosive is- sue would be postponed until aft.-e the November elections to npa-e candidates any possible political embarrassment. But Republican Leader William F. Knowland and Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson are sid to have agreed the issue should be faced without delay, regardless of the consequences. When the Senate referred the censure charges to the six-man committee last month, it agreed to come back to act on a rc-pr.rt on the fifth day after a formal call from Knowland and Johnson. A call Friday could bring the Sen- ate back next Wednesday. DOWN, DOWN. awaited Kenneth Adams on the rocks 65 feet below as his car plunged off a cliff at Daredevil Speed Bowl in Verona, Wis.

Library Budget Hearing Scheduled for Thursday The library budget hearing has been scheduled for 10 a. m. Thurs- day in the commissioners' room at the county courthouse, at which time the 1955 budget for operation of the Coshocton public library will be taken up with the local budget commission. Requested for 1955 by the li- brary board is a total of which Is approximately more than the sum expected to be expended during 1954. MSss Margaret Sahllng, Coshoc- ton librarian, has explained that of the proposed budget is for the building fund and toward a fund to purchase a new bookmobile. At the January reorganization meeting of the library board it was decided, after receiving the advice of an architect that it would be practical to spend a lot of money on the present 54-year-old building. Dan Meek, board president, and other board members were of the opinion that something should be done to bring about the building of a newer and larger library to serve this community. Originally the local library was to serve only a city of to 000 persons, and it is expected 40 offer up-to-date library service to a county-wide population of 000 to people, it was stated. The present Hbrary staff in- cludes five full-time employes plus a Janitor at the main library, and a number of part-time workers. Considerable other expenses art required to maintain the bookmo- bile which offers the library serv- ke to three city schools, 14 coun- (Continued on Pnga Four) Ike's Hope for Income Tax Cut Dim as Deficit Mounts WASHINGTON that President Eisenhower will propose a general Income tax cut next year dimmed today with dis- closure that the Treasury probably will have to ask Congress for sm- other hike in the federal debt limit. But the administration is expect- ed to seek revisions in the tax laws which would benefit certain persons, such as those receiving retirement income not covered by pension plans or income from for- eign investments. Other tax changes under study by administration experts would affect business mainly. They in- clude revisions in tax treatment of capital gains and losses and of cooperatives and tax-exempt or- ganizations, and oil and mining depletion allowances. Officials said that odds are great now that another Increase In the debt ceiling will be necessary next June 30 when the recent temporary hike of expires. Mr. Eisenhower's ultimate goal Is a balanced budget. And if ap- pears unlikely that he will recom- mend a general cut In personal income taxes when the public debt is rising in a period of deficit fi- nancing. The administration last week upped its deficit estimate from to for the current fiscal year of 1955 which will end next June 30. The federal debt soon will go up to about when the Treasury borrows 000.

(UP) Gov. Frank J. Lausche broke his long silence on the issues in this cam- paign year when he came to tht defense of the Ohio Turnpike com- mission today. The governor termed the critical review of the Turnpike Commis- sion and its chairman James W. Shocknessy State Auditor James A. Rhodes "an attempt to as- sassinate the reputation of an honest and able public official." Shocknessy in a special press conference, called the Rhodes re- port "the big lie and the big smear." Lausche's blast at Rhodes marks the first time this year that the governor 'has replied to the almost daily attacks on his administration by his gubernatorial rival. The report cited "improper, ir- regular or possibly illegal" trans- actions in land acquisition and said the commission had paid more than seven million dollars more for right-of-way for the ?41-mile super toll road1 than originally estimated. The report also showed that Commission Chairman James W. Shocknessy 's law firm was special counsel for two insurance com- panies which had written 50 million dollars of policies covering turnpike Contractors. Shocknessy said today that tht state auditor was "conducting a whispering campaign of slur and slander" against the commission. Shocknessy said neither
