(AP) Presi- dent Kennedy's interest in the case is spurring an FBI investigation of the mysterious death of an Agriculture Department official who pried into the affairs of Billie Sol Estes, the Dallas News re- ported today. A Texas grand jury also is look- Ing into the shooting of Henry H. Marshall, 52. found dead on his farm near'Franklin Tex., a year ago. The body was exhumed and a pathologist said Marshall pro- bably was murdered. At the time of his death, a justice of the peace decided it was suicide. In a copyright story, the Dallas News said the President's person- al interest prompted ,his brother, Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy, to order the FBI to step up its in- vestigation. Marshall was shot five times. A bolt action..22 caliber rifle was found near the body. At the time of his death, he .transfers of cot- ton allotments by Estes, the.Pe- cos, Tex., financier who has been indicted on fraud and 'theft charges. Estes business interests involving millions liquid fertili- zer sales, elevators collecting huge sums from the government for storing surplus grain, and ex- tensive farms have been placed in the hands of a receiver. In addition, House and Senate committees are investigating charges that Estes distributed cash and expensive gifts to win preferential treatment by govern- ment officials. "If it could be proved conclu- sively that Marshall was a sui- cide; or that, if he was mur- dered, it had nothing to do with the Estes case, the political pres- sure against the Democrats would be said the News.

He may see French President Charles de Gaulle and British Prime Minis- ter Harold Macmrilan. Rusk .confirmed to a news con- ference Thursday that arrange- ments for a trip are being worked out. From other sources it was learned that he wants to talk to Adenauer about U.S.-Soviet discus- sions on a Berlin settlement and about future moves for greater Western European political unity, which the United States strongly supports. Whether Rusk sees De Gaulle probably will be determined by progress in his conferences here with French Ambassador Herve Alphand. Rusk and.Alphand met for two hours Monday and for 90 minutes Thursday on Paris-Wash- ington policy differences. They ap- parently have no'hope at present of ending major differences over De Gaulle's determination to give France an independent nuclear i weapons force and his desire, to i promote a European grouping of I national states with looser U.S. tics. Rusk reasserted at his news conference that the United States is completely opposed to the De Gaulle plan for a French nuclear force.-In response to.a specific question he said the United States would not favor- Britain's supply- ing nuclear weapons to France. Rusk also challenged critics 'of administration foreign policy to come up with'proposals for alter- native lines of-policy development if 'they'really "believe th'afthe'ad- ministration is following a no win- course. Sen. Barry Goldwater, has accused the. government- of having a "no win" policy in the cold war. Rusk rejected the charge but said "there is: one- point on which we do have to show some caution and that is the notion that victory in its usual sense is to be achieved by sudden military means." He declared that the .United States is promoting development of the Atlantic community, build- ing up its alliances, trying 'to ex- pand trade, assisting countries in need and strengthening the .soli- darity of the Free World.

Still Defiant Eichmann Walks Calmly To Gallows TEL AVIV, Israel fiant to the end, Adolf Eictimann walked firmly to the gallows Thursday night and paid with his life for his role in Nazi Germany's systematic extermination of 6 mil- lion European Jews. The young state of Israel hanged the former Gestapo co ncl at two minutes before mid- night on an improvised scaffold in a third-story storeroom of Ramleh Prison near Tel Aviv. It was the first execution in the 14-year history of this Jewish na-, tion which counts among its citi- zens thousands of relatives of Jews whom Eichmann, 56, helped speed to death in Hitler's gas chambers. Eichmann's body was cremated quickly and the ashes scattered upon the. waters of the Mediter- ranean. Eichmann was cool and unre- pentant as this Jewish nation car- ried to conclusion its announced determination to record the. his- tory of the Nazi pogrom and mete out justice in the name of all Jews. A faint smile on his face, Eich- mann spurned the traditional black hood and even< chided his jailers for making it difficult for him .to stand on the gallows' trap door. "My belief was 'the former head of the Gestapo Jew- ish affairs section .declared. "I had to obey the rules of war .and my flag.
