Washington Tells Newsmen Dulles Will Stay in Service President Hints Adviser Post May Be Open for Him Washington The pres ident's news conference was dominated by discussion of the prospects for a summit conference and a settlement of the Berlin crisis. But the president did touch on these other matters: Dulles He will never let ailing Secretary of State Dul- les leave government service so long as Dulles feels able to work in some capacity. Without saying so specifical- Iv, the president thus indi- cated that he has given thought to keeping Dulles on, possibly as a foreign policy adviser, even if Dulles' illness should make it necessary for him to resign as secretary of state. Project Argus Dulles advised him this morning, the president report- ed, that he is planning to lleave for Florida Monday for a period of recreation and convalescence.

Eisenhower thus said anew, although indirectly, that his attendance at any summit meeting will be contingent on progress at an earlier confer- :nce of east-west foreign min- isters.

The suggestion that the city might become a sov- ereign state caused the state senate to rock with laughter. But the city fa- t h e r s maintained they weren't just whistling "Dix- ie." Back 100 Years Demands for separation of the city from the rest of the state go back almost 100 years. The first was made by Mayor Fernando Wood in 1861. Since then bills call- ing for secession have been introduced into the legisla- ture many times. How to do it legally has always been a question. A move calling for a com- mittee to study the possibil- ity was introduced into the city council yesterday, and referred to the rules com- mittee for study. The move came in the wake of a bitter fight be- tween the city and the state over money. The city gov- ernment, which is Demo- cratic, said it must have new taxes this year to bal- ance its budget. Permission was needed from the legis- lature, which is Republi- can. The city leaders claimed they had to go "hat in hand" to Albany. There, they said, they found New York City treated like an "unwanted They didn't get all the taxing power they wanted. Immediate Response Mayor Robert F. Wag- ner's immediate response was to lop million off the budget, announcing that Lhe pinch would be felt by city employes who would get smaller pay raises, or none at all. At Albany, the state sen- ate howled with laughter yesterday when a resolu- tion was introduced to let New York City secede. talks last week with British Prime Minister Macmillan there were reports from Brit- ish quarters that Eisenhower had agreed unconditionally to go to a summit meeting. Convictions Unchanged Today the president noted that the reply of the western allies to a March 2 Soviet note regarding a summit confer- ence has now been coordinat- ed with the North Atlantic Treaty organization. That re- ply, he added, will be made public soon, and the answer to the matter of any condi- tions in connection with a summit meeting will be dis- closed in that note. But he went on to say that his convictions concerning a summit conference have been known for years and that he never has changed them. He added he doesn't expect Poit-Cmcent Madison Barcam Madison The delicate and difficult problem of labor re- lations between government as an employer and increas- ingly organized public em- ployes probably will become one of the major issues of legislative session.

Same Arguments Major arguments before tht committee on labor and man- agement centered on a bill that would guarantee public employes the right to organ- ize into labor unions and the right of such unions to act as collective bargaining agents in wage and other ne- gotiations with state and local govi rnment. It was the tone of the pro- tenth of one per cent in Feb- ruary. The labor department sta- tistics bureau said its index declined to 123.7 per cent of the 1947-49 base. This is the highest February index point on record, however, 1 per cent above last year. For January the index stood at 123.8, just a fraction under the record of 123.9 set last July and equaled in Novem- ber. All consumer price items except food averaged higher in February. Food prices dropped seven-tenths of 1 per cent, resuming a decline in- terrupted in January after five consecutive months. ceedings, rather than the spe- cific arguments, that appear- ed most significant.
