Abilene Reporter News (Newspaper) - August 14, 1954, Abilene, Texas FAIR, HOTAbilene il^eijorter"WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT GOES"—Byron FINAL VOL. LXXIV, NO. 56 Aigociated Presa (AP) ABILENE, TEXAS, SATURDAY EVENING, AUGUST 14,1954 —EIGHT PAGES PRICE DAILY 5c, SUNDAY 10c Mendes-France Gives EDO Planj^Ä P.-^RIS (iP)—Premier Pierre Men* des-France today sent to the other five nations of the European Defense Community treaty project a long list of changes he wants approved before France gives her ratification. The message to Luxembourg, the Netherlands. Belgium. Italy and West Germany went by ordinary diplomatic channels. Mendes-France wished to give the other nations plentv of time to study the documents before the Aug. 19 meeting of the six foreign ministers in Brussels. The Premier was moving ahead with his project despite the resignation of three of his ministers last night in protest against the decision to bring up the EIX' treaty for ratification. The debate is .scheduled to .''tart in the National Assembly Aug. 28, The Stvcial Republican party, to which the three resigning ministers Ixdong, gave its blessing to their action. The Sochal Republicans who are followers of Gen. Charles de Gaulle, said Mendes-France's proposed modifications fail to go far enough. They complained that the principle of supra-nationality had not been altered and that there had been nothing to remove the old objection against trying to unify Europe with only si.x nations. The men who stepped out of the cabinet were Defense Minister Gen. Pierre Kwnig. Public Works Minister Jacques Chaban-Delma.s and Reconstruction Mini.sier Maurice Lemaire The De Gaullists helped win Mcndes-France the premiership last .lune. Large sections of the Social Republican (De Gaullist» bloc \oted for his confirmation in the Assembly. Mendes-France said the three vould not be replaced at present. He calltKi on three other Cabinet numbt'rs to double up and take over the vacant ministries until the EDC debate winds up in the Assembly. The Assembly is scheduled to begin debate Aug. 28. A rocky road lies ahead for the dynamic Ipremier in his campaign to align France with some sort of defense plan. The first obstacle will be at Brussels where the foreign ministers of the six nations are slated to meet Thursday. Mendes-France will have to persuade the other five that they should accept EDC modifications as a price for getting French parliamentary' approval. Fragmentary reports which leaked out of the Cabinet indicated that in general terms the following modifications were proposed: 1. Shorten the duration of the treaty from .50 years apparently to make it conform to the life of the North Atlantic Treaty which provides an e.scape clause with one year’s notice after 1969. 2 Provision tor reexamination and possible withdrawal of EDC members in ca.se American and British troops are pulled out of Europe or Germany is unified. 3 Decentralization of executive powers vested in the commissariat to leave more authority in the hands of the individual governments, 4 Extension of the transition period for putting the treaty fully into effect from three to eight years, instead of the present interim of 18 months to three years. 5. The integration of forces would apply only to advance elements. This presumably would avoid the possibility of having Ger man .xoii. 6. Increase the number of cases in which the EDC Council of Ministers must act unanimously thus, in efiect, extending the right of veto. Mayor C. E. Gatlin Saturday instructed City Manager Austin Hancock to pick up a letter of introduction he issued to R. F. Wood of Pascagoule. Miss., to present to citizens in the general campaign for rats and mice eradication. The hold-up of the letter will be until Mr. Wood’s plans, reputation and ability to conduct such a drive is investigated. ' The action was taken after a conference of the Mayor and City Manager with a group of Pest Control leaders in Abilene who had prote.sted the issuance of the let-er. The protestants were Felix Rosser and Burt Fre«iian of the Miracle laboratory; I.^ster Humphrey, of the Lester Humphrey Control Co.; S. E. Clayton of the Clayton Chemical Co.; M. V. Show-alter and R. L. Showalter. The latter is secretary of the Texas Pest Control Association and a di rector of the Clayton Chemical Co. The pest control protestants questioned his statement that Abilene had 55,000 rats, or a number equal to the human population, and his methods of eradication. Mayor Gatlin told the group he did not write the letter with any intention to hurt anyone. M V. Scofield said Abilene about 20 years ago had many rats but the city was now almost free. In this the Mayor concurred. Mayor Gatlin said he w'rote a letter of introduction for Wood to aid in the eradication. City Mgr. Hancock .said that Wood came to him. told him of the rat menace, and he sent him to the Health Department. *T guf^s I made a mi.stake.” the .

The text of the announcement: "The government of the United States has agreed with other like minded governments that the situation in Southeast Asia calls for the establishment of a collective security arrangement, in accordance with the purposes and principles of the charter of the I niled Nations, to strengthen the fabric of peace in the general area of Southeast .Asia and the Southwest Pacific.

His bond was set at $10,000. At Hendrick Memorial Hospital Saturday morning Armstrong, who shot himself in the temple following the slaying of Mrs. Armstrong, was reported in “fair condition.” His physician said that he was not in a critical condition.

Brushing aside a last-minute plea from President Eisenhower, the Senate yesterday voted, 48-41, to reject a revised bill opening atomic energy to private industry under a system of exclusive patent rights. The Senate had voted before to require 10 years of patent-sharing. Then, by voice vote, the senators sent the bill back for a second conference with the House with general instructions to insist upon Senate amendments, including compulsory license-sharing. Knowland told newsmen he believed a new conference "will not take too long." He predicted it would be over in time to permit adjournmeTy next week, after both Houses vote again on a new compromise Other provisions in the measure, not now’ in controversy, authorize the President to exchange limited atomic information with Allies and make other major changes in basic atomic energy law enacted in 1946.
