Arrested East Germans Claim Attlee Resigns as Labor Party Leader LONDON Attlee the mildmannered Socialist who directed creation of Britains welfare state resigned Wednesday as leader of the Labor Parly A threecornered fight for the top post in Ihe British opposition party appeared shaping up among Deputy Leader Herbert Morrison 7 49 yearold Hugh Gaitskell and Ancurin Sevan 58 fiery Welsh leader of the partys left wing Bcvan was given almost no chance however against Morrison or Gailskell both followers of Attlces moderate policies Morrisons age could count against him Characteristically the 72yearold Attlee almost tiptoed out of the party leadership he had held for 20 record in modern British politics He handed in his resignation at a closed meet ATTLEE ing of Labor members of Parliament which lasted less than half an hour His colleagues saluted him with for hes a jolly good Attlee was visibly moved His lips quivered Age and ill health were responsible for his retirement from the minority leadership in the House of Commons The man who served as Britains prime minister from 1945 to 1951 had found direction of the partys opposition to the Conservative government an increas ing burden in recent months Labors defeat in the general election in May may have speeded his decision Last summer he suffered a slight stroke He recovered but found himself more

California primar ies which Stevenson may enter would be given consideration he decides to run Kefauvers indicated change in strategy was regarded as reflect ing a belief on his part that it is more important to win a few cru cial primary tests than it is to roll lip early ballot votes as he did in 952 Nixons Version Another version of this problem spparently is faced by Vice Presi dent Nixon if President Eisen hower doesnt run again Nixons friends are reported di vided on the question of whether he could run almost wholly on a possible endorsement from Eiscn h o w e r or whether it would be necessary for him to go to the California primary in an attempt to win home base backing in next years GOP convention Sen Knowland of California the minority leader has made it clear that if
