Pflimlin said Saturday he would re sign as soon as the National Assembly votes on the constitutiona reform bill next week But he indicated that he would stand imme diately for reinvestiture if the measure wins the necessary two thirds majority The drastic move presumably is aimed at killing chances of i civil war once and for all by giving Rightists a fair chance to elec Gen Charles de Gaulle Meanwhile Pflimlin sent a member of Parliament to Algeria to talk withthe insurgent junta there JeanLouis Vigier an aide of De Gaulle during World War II who later broke with the Gaullis party in Parliament flew to giers on a personal and unofficial mission But the trip had obvious political implications The reestablishment of normal contacts with the militarycivil ian group that set up a near rev olutionary government in Algiers has been the primary aim Vigier is making his trip on the advice of Pierre GuiUain de Ben ouville a strong Gaullist sup porter and French publisher who made a previous trip to Algiers through Switzerland The results of his trip have never become public Vigier will be the first deputy to go on such a mission although a handful of extreme rightwing ers have

countries as well as the United States He said they should be scientists quali fied by knowledge of how to de tect nuclear tests THIS LEFT the way open for Russia to bring in experts from such countries as Poland and if it chose to do so The only condition Eisenhow er suggested was that the man should be chosen for scientific and not political reasons Within minutes after the White House

voters will stay at home on election day point out that there race this time for US most always a contest that stim ulates interest They also cite the fact that there are few contests in either party for nomination to the top Statehouse jobs below governor This leads to only per functory primary election cam paigning On the other side observers who are guessing therell be heavier balloting point

13 tenant governor and commerce commission tussles m support of their view It isnt clear as yet how bal loting will be affected by the dis closure Friday that incumbent state commerce commissioners have been receiving monthly con tributions from commission em ployes SOME LEADERS argue it may serve to shift votes from Com missioners John Ropes and John A Tallman Republicans seeking reelection to some of the other six GOP candidates for the two nominations Others contend i has come too shortly before elec tion day to affect voting much Stirring probably more interes than any other single issue is the disagreement between GOP gu bernatorial aspirants William G Murray and William H Nichola overtaxes Nicholas wants to hold the line on taxes until it becomes abso lutely necessary to propose any increases Murray says he vvoulc favor boosting the sales tax rate to 3 per cent to give Iowa farm ers more property tax relief and school aid NICHOLAS FORCES also say he has been making headway with

Eisenhower did not name the U S scientists in his letter to the Russian premier I ALSO SUGGEST Eisen hower wrote Khrushchev that the experts should be asked to make an initial progress report within 30 days after convening and to aim at a final report with in 60 days or as soon thereafter as possible This meant that the Khrushchev begin in early June and a final report in the first part of August Thus progress wouldbe made assum ing agreement on test detection systems for working out an in ternational accord on the suspen sion of nuclear weapons tests Such an accord might reached at a summit conference Any progress in the scientific dis cussions would increase the pros pects for a heads of government meeting EISENHOWEHS letter was in reply to a note from the Soviet premier in which Khrushchev said Russia is agreeable to the naming of experts to study ways of detecting possible violations of a nuclear test ban Eisenhower also proposed that the UN and interested subsid iary groups
