Police Department is to make a survey under direction of Traffic Capt. C. A. Veteto, Purpose of the study, Veteto said Thursday, is to see whether the “No Turn on Red” can be eliminated at some places where it now is in force. At most intersections already, a motorist is allowed to turn right on red after making a stop. How'-ever, there are a number of corners where this isn't permitted. Veteto pointed out that right turns on red are being allowed again at the South First St.-Sayles Blvd. intersection and the South First-Poplar Sts. intersection. The four-way operation of the signals at those locations was re cently eliminated. Under that former system a driver had to wait for a green arrow or a green light to turn right. It is necessary to make a com plcte stop before a right turn is legal anywhere on a red light. “Many motorists haven't learned they can again make right turns after stops at South First and Sayles and at South First and Poplar.” Veteto said. “They continue to wait for a green light. This unnecessarily slows the movement of traffic.” “I told him lie just would not. 'couldn i conceive” that the Army i>e blackmaileti.” McCarthy :,wore. | In swift recital ot his relation-. i with St'crctary of the Army Sliweni .•nd Adams. McCarthy also lesti-lud: 1.

The House Ways and Means Committee today unanimously approved the one-year extension of the President's authority to make trade agreements with other nations. The House is likely to act on it tomorrow and the senate perhaps next week. On other matters the President had this to say at his news conference; Communism—What he personally fears more than anjthing in the Free World’s struggle against Communism is the possibility of a fail-^; ure to loc^ the danger squarely in ' its broad face. Eisenhower said emphatically the United States cannot achieve its aims by miM-i tary force altme. Must Be Basis i He said that in addition to miii-; tary strength, there must be the i psychological, politicai and intellectual basis for any intervention designed to help the Free World in the battle against the forces of communism. Secret information — Eisenhower said the loyalty and obedience to the provisions of the Constitution .•ihouid be beyond queslitm in the case of any man holding a commission as a reserve officer. He was reminded by a newsman that be said recently it was reprehensible for any Army officer or civilian to give out secret information without authorization. Indochina — The President said the French L'nion forces in Indochina are in possibly better defensive shape than before the fall of Dien Bien Phu, but undoubtedly could be much aided by MRS. O.
