The former president, white- haired and bushy-browed, made the suggestion from a flag-draped platform he shared with one of his successors in the White House, Harry S. Truman. The scene was the dedication of the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library in a serene park adjoining the two-room cottage where Hoov- er was born 88 years ago today. At front were six high school bands and .thousands of fellow lovvans who had come to honor the 30th president in, as he noted, the gathering shadows of his life. The village backdrop of flags and bunting and simple frame houses had a holiday flavor but the guest of honor's main theme was serious. "We must said Hoover, "that the United Nations has failed to give us even a remote hope of lasting peace. Instead, it Dallas Grand Jury Indicts Billie Estes WASHINGTON Jus- tice Department announced today the indictment of Texas financier Billie Sol Estes on new charges of misrepresenting his financial con- dition in statements made to the Commodity Credit Corporation. Deputy Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach said the charges were contained in an indictment re- turned this morning by a federal grand jury in Dallas, Tex. Katzenbach said the jury also indicted Robert Earl Clements, 67, of Amariflo, Tex., on five counts of transporting fraudulent- ly obtained securities in interstate commerce. The Estes indictment, Katzen bach said, charged him with un- derstating his liabilities in report- ing to the CCC in connection with his storage of grain for the gov- ernment. Estes was accused of stating in a report submitted last March 8, that his liabilities totaled 430, whereas the liabilities actual- ly exceeded million, the jury said. A statement submitted April 3, 1961, listed Estes' liabilities as but the jury said that they actually exceeded mil- lion at that time. An Oct. 9, 1961 statement gave Estes' liabilities as in- stead of the actual total of more than million, the jury charged. HERBERT HOOVER adds to the dangers of wars which now surround us." The .Communist' countries, he said, "have destroyed the- useful- ness of the United Nations to pre- serve peace." In suggesting a Council of Free Nations, Hoover made it clear he did not intend that it should re- place the U.N. But, he said, it "should step in" when the fails to act or is "prevented from taking action" to preserve peace. "The timers here when, if the free nations are.to survive, they must have a new and stronger worldwide Hoover said. "For-purposes of this discussion I may call it the 'Council of Free Nations.' It should include only those who' are willing to stand up and fight for their freedom." Hoover said he would not have the council.replace the United Na- tions, but would design it to step in when the United Nations is prevented from acting or fails to act to preserve peace. The Hoover library, made of na- tive limestone, is the fourth of the presidential libraries created by Congress to make the records of White House administrations available to the American people.

Union rejected to- day an American proposal for zonal inspection to sup- ervise world disarmament. Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Valerian A. Zorin described as unacceptable an American'formula whereby a country's -terri- tory should be split up into several zones for sampling checks by international teams to make sure a coun- try is really disarming.' Zorin, on Thursday rejected a Western compromise proposal for a nuclear test ban. He refused then even about interna- tional inspections on Soviet soil. Today's Western proposal con- tained in America's -three-stage disarmament program was de- signed to meet some objections against unlimited inspections of Soviet territory. Dean Outlines Plan The Western formula was out- lined by U.S. Ambassador Arthur H. Dean before the 68th plenary session of the 17-nation disarma- ment talks. Dean suggested the big powers' territories be divided into nine zones. In the first part of disarma- ment, international inspectors would be entitled to enter the first zone, but would not allowed.to make any investigation whatever in the other eight zones. As dis- armament progresses, Dean said, the inspectors would be allowed to enter additional zones. Dean com- pared-this to the sampling tech- nique used for production checks in industry. Dirty Spies! Zorin. repeated, the Soviet argu- ment.that the Western-plan was merely a method to slip espion- age agents Into.the Soviet Union. '.Originally, Western.plans.called for ar. entire nation to be open to disarmament inspectors for verifi- cation of forces and armaments. The Western nuclear compro- mise plan was spurned. Thursday by Zorin even before Dean had a chance to outline it. It called for fewer control posts to detect ille- gal nuclear blasts1 and fewer on- site inspections of suspicious events. Zorin h Adamant Zorin once again adamantly re- fused to commit 'his government to the principle of compulsory in- ternational inspection and reject- ed the entire Western formula as "just the old American position dolled up. in a new guise to de- ceive the neutrals." "From all that we have Zorin said, "It is on the basis of the proposals which Mr. Dean has brought from Washing- ton, no agreement on the cessa- tion of nuclear weapons tests can be reached." We Want Checks The-Western concessions were offered on condition that the So- viets give firm prior commitment to the principle of compulsory on- the-spot checks of suspected treaty violations by international inspection teams. "If the Soviet Union stops its current series of tests and ac- cepts our offer, we will stop, our testing Dean told Zorin.

Economy With Cabinet, Budget Men WASHINGTON (AP) President Kennedy moned top economic advisers to the White House today as indications mounted that he make an early decision against a quick tax.cut. Available for the midmorning meeting were prelimi- nary figures on a number of important economic indi- cators for July, which Kennedy, said, would influence his decision for or against tax reduction in 1962. The statistics revealed a moderate July pickup in business. Called to the White House to discuss taxes and the economy were Secretary of the Treasury Douglas Dillon, Secretary of Labor Arthur J.

Lu- ther King Jr., and three other in- tegration leaders were convicted today of violating city ordinances in a prayer vigil, but they were given suspended sentences in an unprecedented move. Sentence was imposed by Re- corder A.N. Durden Sr. who' found King and-his associates guilty of disorderly conduct, congregating on the sidewalks and refusing to obey an officer. But Durden suspended the sen- tences of fines and 60 days in prison. "I'm going to let you serve it on Durden said, making the probation conditional upon the defendants not violating valid city ordinances -and general good be- havior. Did Texas Congressman Get Pressure Off Estes? WASHINGTON Senate. Bagwell said Rutherford tele- investigation focused today on testimony that the Agriculture De- partment once let Billie'Sol Estes off the hook .after a Texas con- gressman complained it was "cru- cifying" Estes. John C. BagweU, the depart- ment's general counsel, told the Senate Investigations subcommit- tee Thursday that the complaint of Rep. J. T .Rutherford, D-Tex., was a factor in calling.a meeting of top department officials last Jan. 6 which rescinded orders can- celing as illegal Estes' profitable dealings in cotton, planting acre- ages. Bagwell read a statement Thurs- day reciting events he said had led up to and had. marked the January meeting. He said no transcript .was kept of what went on at the meeting, but that his statement was reconstructed from memory last May 15. phoned'Undersecretary of Agricul- ture Charles S. Murphy about Jan.- 3 protesting the department's rul- ing that Estes and his associates had illegally obtained allotments allowing them to plant an extra acres of cotton under gov- ernment supports. -Bagwell quoted Rutherford as requesting a recon- sideration of the case and protest- ing that "we were crucifying them." Rutherford said John Dennison, an 'attorney for .Estes, had asked him to request a new hearing and "in so- doing told me he felt his client .was being 'crucified.' In us- ine that word I was simply pass- ing on to the department the at- torney's contention." The Jan. 6 meeting, attended by Murphy, BagweU and other top Agriculture Department officials, rescinded the orders Bagwell had issued canceling the disputed Es- tes acreage allotments. The recorder said he did not mean King and the others would have to obey segregation ordinanc- es already ruled unconstitutional by the U.S..Supreme Court. It wasn't learned immediately whether the scheduled "prayer pil- grimages" would be-staged after City Manager Stephen A: Roos de- nied permission for the protests. King was arrested July 27 along with nine other Negroes. They lined up on the sidewalk in.front of City Hall, intending to hold a 24-hour prayer vigil. They were jailed after refusing to leave. Tried with King were the Rev. Ralph D. Abernathy, an associate of King; W. G, Anderson, presi- dent of the Albany movement; and Slater King, vice president of the organization. King testified the prayer vigil was a last resort in efforts to -gain audience with the City Commis- sion to talk over racial problems. tistics lessened the already-slen- der chances of tax reduction prior jto the administration's previously announced plans for a cut next year. A group of labor leaders who lunched with Kennedy on Wednes- day came away saying he was doubtful Congress would be will- ing to approve a tax cut this year. However, a final presidential de- cision was deferred pending study of the economic signposts for July. The July figures, .to be. an- nounced piecemeal during coming weeks, will reveal a rather sluggish economic advance an advance, nonetheless. Al- though disappointing in terms of optimistic January forecasts, they hardly can be expected to ate the kind of alarm which many believe would be necessary before Congress would vote tax cut at its current session. Checks with informed officials indicated 'the'- July statistics '-will show moderate increases in retail sales, 'industrial production and personal income. Also, there ap- peared to be a fair chance that final figures-will show a July re- versal of the six-month downtrend in the flow of new 'orders to man- ufacturers of durable goods. Employment figures announced earlier revealed a slight improve- ment in the job situation. While the July results offer no basis for expecting a strong eco- nomic upsurge, neither do they point to an immediate recession. Since Kennedy .already is con- cerned about congressional oppo- sition to a hurry-up tax cut, it seemed likely the inconclusive sta- tistics would permit a decision to defer, action on taxes until 1963. The White House conference fol- lows the windup Thursday of closed hearings by the House Ways and Means Committee on taxes and the economy. Public sessions by the Senate-House Eco- nomic Committee are continuing. Raymond J. Saulnier, who was chairman of the Council of Eco- nomic Advisers in the Eisenhower administration, told the economic committee the July business ad- vance means only that the danger of a downturn has been deferred. Leon H. Keyserling, head of the council in the Truman administra- tion, said all signs point toward the "fourth recession since 1953." He urged a quick tax cut for low- hearing. Among the spectators were 13 ministers from other states.' The interracial group of clergy- men had planned to participate-in one of the demonstrations today. More, than a dozen clergymen from as far away as Los Angeles and New York have joined the fight against Albany's segregation policies. The demonstrations were called for between noon and 5 p.m., timed to follow King's trial in re- corders Court. A decision was promised today by City Manager Stephen A. Roos on whether he would grant a per- mit for the propsed pilgrimages.

(NEWS Staff CHICAGO Judge Joseph Sam Perry granted today a temporary injunction to operat- ing railroad unions. The ruling bars introduction of new manage- ment economy rules pending ap- peal. The U.S. District Court order could delay application of the ex- pense-slashing program, which eventually would-.knock out jobs. The carriers had planned to put the new in effect next Thursday. The five operating brotherhoods now will take to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals an earlier rul- ing by Judge Perry denying then- suit to outlaw the job cancella- tions. The work force cut which railroad spokesman J. E. Wolfe testified .was an'1 eventual goal would wipe out about 10 per cent of railroad employment.. The carriers want an immediate reclassification of work rules that would .make obsolete .the- of some firemen who presently ride in the 'cabs of diesel locomo- tives. "But Wolfe said this is just the first step in the over-all economy effort. Unnecessary labor expenses, Wolfe testified, cost the. nation's railroads annually. TheTedassificatiori, in line with the recommendations of a presi- dential fact-finding commission, would result in the immediate dis- missal of firemen, .those with less than-10. years seniority. The reduction would be accomplished gradually by retire- ment, transfer'-and normal job turnover. In addition, Wolfe testified, the carriers hope to eliminate additional operating workers 'in accordance with the work rules proposed -by the presidential commission... The unions say they will, strike rather than allow the new work rules to go ;into effect HOUM probably would block such a least for 60 days.

Any man hired at random, said Wolfe-and Samuel C. Phillips of a fireman well enough after a sin- gle'train run-to halt a train in case of an emergency. Phillips said examinations are required of .firemen after their second and third years on the job to. test their capabilities. He said firemen have exacting job responsibilities.
