Abilene Reporter News (Newspaper) - October 2, 1954, Abilene, Texas WARMFINALWITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT GOES"~ByronABILENE, TEXAS, SATURDAY EVENING, OCT. 2, 1954 —EIGHT PAGES__ PRICE DAILY 5c, SUNDAY 10c Associated Press (AP) VOL. LXXIV, NO. 107France, Germans Both Yield on Arms Issue LONDON fJPt—France and West Germany made concessions today on the issue of arms control, thus brightening the picture in the stymied nine-power conference on rearming West Germany and granting her sovereignty in partnership with the West. This was disclosed after a top level executive session at which both French Premier Pierre Men-des - France and West German chancellor Konrad Adenauer reportedly yielded on points which threatened to bog down the conference. Two sessions were on tap for the afternoon—another executive session by the nine foreign ministers and then a meeting of Mendes-France, Adenauer and U.S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden to draft a declaration of intent to end the 9-year-old occupation of West Germany. Yesterday Mendes-France suddenly announced opposition to a conference plan for control of German armaments production. This stunned the other conference delegates, who had been under the impression Mendes - France was ready to go along w'ith the compromise, drafted by Belgian Foreign Minister Paul-Henri Spaak. It called for NATO and an enlarged Brussels pact group to check any runaway rearmament by Germany. Last night Dulles came up with a “dark horse” solution in hope of breaking the deadlock. In general it called for control of German armaments by the proposed enlarged Brussels alliance. Pending its creation armaments con-' trol would be in the hands of the j occupation powers — Britain, the United States and France. This morning Dulles had a private talk with Mendes-France. At one point Dulles was reported to have asked testily of the French premier: “Just what are you after —everything?” The ministers then went into a regular session, where Mendes-France’s attitude was reported “tougher than ever.” Eden, who has been in a “peace negotiator” role during much of the conference—which was called mainly at his suggestion—then proposed the executive session, at which each minister has only one assistant. Informants said at this session Mendes - France yielded on the French definition of what areas near Communist territory would be out of bounds for manufacture of weapons of mass destruction. In turn, Adenauer gave his country’s pledge not to undertake manufacture of ABC weapons—atomic, bacteriological, chemical and pos* . | sibly others. DENVER IJPI — President Eisenhower’s headquarters announced today the United States will send a small Navy-directed expedition to the Antarctic, an area of great potential strategic importance in the event of war. The announcement said the decision to dispatch an icebreaker to the southern polar area “is in line with continuing United States interest in the region.” The expedition will set out soon and remain four or five months, the White House said. It added that in addition to map-making and collecting scientific data, the exploring party will study j supply problems which will face a U. S. group to take part in 1957 - 58 in an international geophysics program in the Antarctic. The White House said “no permanent shore bases will be established ”, The Ignited States so far has refrained from staking any claim to territory in the south pole area, but the importance of the region iii the event of a war with Russia long has been under study by military experts. The Soviet Union, too, has recognized the strategic value of the Antarctic and has sent one exped-iition there without making a claim to territory. The White House announcement did not say who will lead the Navy expedition and officials on hand here were unable to provide that information.

About 400 white adults and teenagers staged a demonstration in Baltimore and three Negroes leaving Southern High School were threatened. One of them. Leon Thompson. 14, was hit in the face. His assailant, 24-year-old Jack Zimmerman, later was fined $100. Three other men were fined $25 each for disorderly conduct. Some Negro students were escorted to safety by police, a minister and a teacher. The high school enrolled Negroes for the first time this year. There are now 36 in an enrollment of 1.780. Attendance at the Milford. Del., NEW YORK *v—Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer. wfho guided wartime atomic bomb production but now is judged a security risk, has been reelected director of the institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton, N.J. The controversial physicist smiled as he left a meeting of the Institute’s board of trustees yesterday. Shortly afterward Chairman Herbert Maass announced that Oppenheimer and all other officers had been reelected. The decision was unanimous, Maass said. President is Lewis L. Strauss, chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission. The AEC last June voted 4-1 to bar Oppenheimer from further access to its atomic secrets after a security board decided he was a security risk even though loyal to i the United States. The main reason given was "his persistent and continuing assocation with Communists.” Last month Strauss said he saw no reason why Oppenheimer should not remain at the Institute.

THE WEATHER WASHINGTON if*—The “jury”! of senators which w ill convene * Nov. 8 to pass on censure of Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis> may undergo some changes before there’s a showdown vote. The uncertainty of the jury’s makeup results from the large number of senators serving temporarily by appointment because of deaths. Nine senators have died in the 83rd Congress, an unusually high number. Senate authorities said last night the total of 10 appointees—the UHh is Sen Thomas H Kuchel t R-Calif i, named to succeed Vice Presi-den Nixon was the highest in their memory At least seven appointed senators could be displaced by successors elected Nov. 2. but it is uncertain in each case whether the elected successors would actually take office before the censure vote.
