Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - January 21, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin APPLETON POST CRESCENT VOLXUXNo.68 40 A, B WIS., WEDNESDAY, JANUARY ASSOCIATED WOU SXRV1CX Price Seven Cents Won't be Pushed Around, Ike States Soviet Has Not Made New Offer Washington President Eisenhower said today Russia must come to understand the United States simply won't be pushed around in working for world peace, Eisenhower told a news con- ference that was the purport of his message to Anastas I. Mikoyan, toe Soviet deputy premier as he left for home after his U. S. visit. The visit by Mikoyan was much on the minds of the newsmen, and brought early questions. Eisenhower said the Krem- lin leader offered no new pro- posals for relief of world ten- sions at their meeting in the White House last Saturday. Referring then to the fare- well message he sent Mikoyan yesterday, Eisenhower said the deputy premier must be sure that America wants peace. Ready to Negotiate This country is willing to conciliate and negotiate, Eis- enhower went on, but the So- viets must understand that the United States simply won't be pushed around. On a domestic political mat- ter, Eisenhower said he would favor repeal of the present constitutional ban on a third term for presidents. Eisenhower has said repeat- edly that he would not be in- terested primarily because of his a third term. There was no indication in what he said today that he has changed his mind about that. The president said he still thinks it was not a particular- ly wise decision. He added that if the American people want to make any man their president, then it should be up to them and he sees no ob- jection to more than two terms. Then he went on to say he would rather see the constitu- tional amendment repealed than kept. Other Topics The news conference touch- ed on these other main topics: As for the bill of Sen. Lyn- don Johnson (D-Tex) to cre- ate a federal conciliation ser- vice to handle civil rights dis- putes, Eisenhower said he can't see that such a govern- ment unit would be fruitful. He added he is keeping an open mind on the matter. Eisenhower called again for extension of the life of the civil rights commission, now scheduled to go out of busi- ness in September. Johnson's bill provides for such an ex- tension. The federal government is working on and studying the question of what to do about children of U. S. military per- sonnel who are being barred from public schools at Nor- folk, Va., and some other places because of controversy over court-ordered mixing of the races in the classrooms. In comment on Democrat- ic contentions that his bil- lion budget is a propaganda document, drafted for politi- cal profit, Eisenhower said budgetary schizophrenia must be affecting the critics be- cause they are on all sides of the matter. There has been criticism, he said, that the budget is too large and that it is not large enough. When you get down to the matter who is using the budg- et for a political football, Eis- enhower added, he wants to assure everyone that it is not be. He went on to say he is not running for anything, but is Quitnby W. Holden, 28, Is aided by two unidentified cafe customers after he was shot by his roommate, Newlin P.

C.B.DeMUIe Succumbs to Heart Attack Hollywood's Most Famous Director Was III for Week own Hollywood Cecil B DeMille, 77, whose spectacu- lar productions made him the movies' most famous and suc- cessful director, died today. A heart attack claimed the man who was one of the founders of Hollywood and became legend in his timec He died at his home at a.m. after an illness of a week. With him was a daugh- ter, Cecilia, and her husband, Joseph Harper. His wife, Con- stance, was in the house but not at the bedside. She also has been ill. DeMille made more than 70 films, directing and producing many. He spent money like water, in amounts that awed even Hollywood's free-spend- ing studio heads. Pictures Set Records It paid off. Picture after picture set box office records. Several of his films became screen classics. He was amazingly active right up until he was taken ill. The last film he actively produced was "The 10 Com- but he super- vised production of "The Buc- caneer" and was making plans for a new film about Lord Robert Baden-Powell, who founded the Boy Scouts.

Jack Barry and Dan En- right, producers, and Robert Noah, an associate, refused yesterday to waive immunity from possible prosecution when called before the jury. They were excused, and no further appearances were scheduled. Assistant Dist. Atty. Joseph Stone said the men had been called to testify because they said originally they wanted to cooperate in the probe. The jury wanted to hear their story, Stone said, but was unwilling to grant them immunity from prosecution on the basis of anything they might testify. Speaking in favor of the the site east of County Trunk P and just north of Ninth street in Menasha, promoted by a Twin Cities citizens commit- tee, was John Wilterding who contended: 1. Menasha has supported the center for 14 years and will continue to support it. "Being short of facilities is the only question at issue. We don't have to find a new home for the extension half way to Green Bay or Fond du Lac." 2. A letter from Menasha Mayor Du Charme offers an official promise of a deed for 10 acres to be paid for and delivered to the county boards. 3. Adequate sewage, water and other facilities would be provided. 4. Menasha High school, three blocks from the site, has promised to make its gym, pool and auditorium available to the center. 5. The Menasha librarian has promised to give full li- brary services to extension students regardless of their United States.

His trial, one of the biggest war crime proceedings before a German court, is expected to start soon. The state prosecutor said Chmielewski actually had tor- tured and killed thousands of Mauthausen inmates from many nations. He said the charges were limited to 175 counts to shorten the trial. The trial will center on the notorious "Operation Death Bath" in which hundreds of inmates were stripped nude, then sprinkled with water at subfreezing temperatures un- til they collapsed with frozen limbs, fell into a pond and drowned.

Snowfall began to diminish this morning in most of the midcontincnt and was expect- ed to end as far east as Kan- sas City by early afternoon. Strong winds continued throughout the plains, causing considerable drifting.
