M-NO, 224 ^httCB FIVE CENTS W.UUU n ft* J<*mL News family �( pmtiible nrftm Algerian 'Quake Toll Mounts, French Rush Troops, Supplies ALGIERS, Algeria W)-The earth still trembled .at. Orleansvllle today, more than 24 hours after the disastrous earthquake that wreaked a death toll estimated at more than 1,000 Europeans and Algerians. Another 2,000 were believed hurt. Shocks less violent than the first were felt five times last.night and this morning. One lasted several seconds, bringing down unsteady houses and great piece's of shattered walls. Blasted buildings in the heart of the town were crumbling into the streets.  There were 2,000 rescue workers and as many more troops; on the spot about 100 miles west of Algiers. The French army, which rushed all available troops and ambulances to the area, also sent four bulldozers and eight big water tanks, along with eight tons of b::ad and other food, 50 field kitchens and 35 "cooks to man them. Refuse To Evacuate The i.^ayor of the city, was quoted as saying: "We've had to evacuate 95 per cent of the houses, but we won't evacuate the town. We're going to put everybody into tents." Rescue teams returning here said identification of European victims was proceeding rapidly but they were having more difficulty with the Moslem dead. " Casualty estimates, were made more difficult by the fact many Moslems were burying their own dead without sending in any report. The French Interior ministry said last night 590 deaths have been confirmed officially, but most an accurate accounting of the quake toll will take.many days. Railways Cut With railways cut and many highways impassable, aid was flown in from Algiers and Oran. Some surface communications had been restored today, but most telephone lines were still out. Two thousand soldiers from Algiers and Oran - bayonets bared - patrolled the region to prevent looting. Planes which rushed doctors and medical supplies to the area returned with the most severely Injured. The less serious cases were cared for in emergency field hospitals or simply in the streets. Many able-bodied survivors were reported fleeing from Orleansville and.the stricken villages. They traveled by horse, bicycle or afoot, carrying a few valued possessions. , French and Algerian troops were sent from Algiers and Oran to the trouble spot. American naval authorities ordered (the U. S. Sixth Fleet, stationed in the Mediterranean, to stand by. The harrowing, quake hit just after 1 a.m. yesterday with a 12-second tremor which toppled even Orleansvllle's mOst modern structure - a,nine-story building - like a stack of matches.

And Atty. Gen. Brownell ruled it should not go on any public record. McCarthy offered it at that time in support of his contention that his investigation of alleged Red infiltration at the Army'* Ft. Monmouth, 1J. J, radar laboratory was needed. The paper purported to be a letter from the FBI to Army in telligence reporting on personnel at the laboratory. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover said it was, not a letter but con tai'ned accurate* excerpts from a longer confidential FBI memorandum. Call Recess The committee recessed at 10:18 a.m. until 1 p.m., to examine, the document and to check on some "other matters." McCarthy is trying on the one hand to prove the 2%-page document is "not spurious" and on the other' that it does not contain secrets which might make his pos session of it Illegal. V The committee and its staff made mystery of their plans for questioning Roy M. Cohn, a central figure In the recent McCarthy-Army hearings, and James N. Juliana, a staff member of McCarthy's Senate Investigations subcommittee. ' Committee sources said last night Cohn and Juliana had been summoned for questioning today. This morning the same sources said they bad no appointment with Juliana, and that Cohn would not be questioned until some time in the afternoon; Quit Botb Mea It was reported that Juliana would appear at a closed door session.' Chairman Watkins would only say his special staff had wanted to quiz both men to determine whether they have evidence that should be placed in the public hearings. McCarthy, who started to walk out of the hearing yesterday in a row with Watkins over his efforts to discuss the "FBI letter,^ contends-there is nothing in it that would affect the nation's security if made public. Atty. Gen. Brown* ell, however, has ruled against letting it go into any public record, The McCarthy camp said it had only a few more points, to make.

Associates said he was prepared to consider appropriate measures as the debate progressed. The initial discussion was expected to boil down mostly to an exchange between the United States and Russia. Other delegates have indicated privately that they cannot see what good the Council debate can accomplish. Contradictory Accounts The difficulty faced by the Council stems from the contradictory accounts of the incident given by the two powers. A U.S. spokesman said his government, in bringing such an incident before the Council � for the first time, wants to focus world opinion on this act. The .United States, he, explained, wants to create an atmosphere in Which sueh incidents cannot be repeated. The Soviets are expected to counter that the best way to prevent such incidents is to keep American planes away from Russia's shores. Rejecting a second American protest of the shooting down, the Soviet Union asked Wednesday what would happen if Russian war planes "begin patrol flights near the border' of the United States." Russia* Claim The Russians already have contended that the American two-em-gine Neptune bomber opened fire first on the Soviet planes. The nine American survivors - one crewman was lost - said their guns were unloaded and one gunner was able to shoot back only after the U.S. plane had been hit and was going down.

Strauss of the Atomic Energy Commission says the United States has many more atomic weapons in its arsenal than it did a year ago. Strauss was tight lipped yesterday when reporters sought to find out about U.S. and Russian progress in the atomic arms race. The AEC chief told a news conference this country has "more weapons, by a wide margin, than we had a year ago" and he said the production rate is mounting rapidly. Tests Fruitful But when asked whether the United States has any new weapons, Strauss would'only recall that he had said a spring series of Weapons tests in the mid-Pacific "were very fruitful." ; A newsman asked if there had been any new Soviet atomic blasts since the United States announced detection of a Russian test about a year ago. After some, thought, Strauss replied: .fJThsMttk... where I ought not to answer.""*He cautioned newsmen not to "draw any inferences" from his reply. The AEC chairman said that "in all likelihood there will be continuing tests of new weapons" at the M a r s h a 11 Islands proving grounds. Other sources have reported a new test series is in the works for next spring. Strauss also said he knows of no plan to move the testing area from where a mighty hydrogen bomb was' detonated last March, setting " loose a radioactive cloud which ' drifted beyond the warning area. Japanese Stricken. Some Japanese fishermen 80" miles from the blast were'stricken by radiation sickness and some' Marshall Islands natives also suffered, but less severely. This led to demands from some Japanese that the tests ,be baited or the test location mov^d. Strauss' news conference ranged -* into the field of peaceful atomic , energy uses and the AEC chairman said he expects conferences-to open soon on creation of an in-ternational agency along lines sug-; gested by President Eisenhower. Strauss said, too, he hopes for an international conference of scientists on nonmilitary use of atomic energy "not long after the first of the year." "GOP EXPRESS" LEAVES FOR L.A.
