THE CRASH occurred a 1800 Milwaukee Ave., at the highest point of the North west Elevated route and be tween the Damen Ave. am Western Ave. stations. The E Parise, freed from his cab by firemen using portable electric saws, told police and impact. He said a side door newsmen he had pulled away from the station about or a.m. when "a train stalled in front of me and I came up behind it." He said IB couldn't estimate his speed Because the straight stretch of tracks at the scene had no signals. A spokesman for the Chi- cago Transit Authority blamed the accident on trouble, pre- sumably mechanical, on a train that was nearing down- town Chicago. This train halted, forcing several trains following behind to halt or slow down. The lead train had started up again when the accident occurred. structure there is as high a a three-story building. The motorman of the rea train, Dominick Parise, wa trapped in his cab for more than a half hour. He com- plained of a leg injury but was able to walk unaided. Passengers said the rear train had just pulled away from the Western Ave. sta- tion and was traveling slow ly when the collision oc- curred.

An East German spokes- man said, however, seems that secret talks may lead to some success, so we are not against secret talk's even when no Germans are pres ent." Gromyko was reported to have told Foreign Minister Lothar Bolz of East Germany that he was prepared to go into limited, private talks with Herler, British Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd and Couve de Murville. As today's meeting opened at the Palace of Nations, a Soviet informant said Gro- myko. planned to make a statement, mild in tone, on the Western proposals for a German settlement linked with disarmament and Euro- pean security measures. This informant also said Gromyko is prepared to en- gage in private talks. IT IS IN such talks, West- ern officials privately. con- cede, that the West will find out whether there is a solu- tion for the Berlin crisis short of resort to the military. Couve de Murville was smiling when he left the meeting of Western ministers. He and the West German foreign minister, Henrich Von Brentano, chatted privately for a minute. Asked about the conference Von Brentano said only "good, good." Pierre Baradug, French spokesman, said everything is ;oing well. He referred to the oint statement and said, "We are completely in agreement." The Western statement was ssued in an apparent attempt to calm the dispute. The U. S. and British dele- gations let it be known over .he weekend that they felt Russia's adamant rejection of :he Western package proposal 'or German reunification and a Eutopean security system necessitated negotiations on the immediately pressing question of Berlin. 9 FRENCH AND West Ger- man officials insisted on con- tinued firm support for the package program and a very tough line in negotiating with Gromyko. The joint Western ment denied that the Allies lad decided to break up the Western package plan and concentrate on a Berlin set- tlement. It said the Western powers had already stated that various questions included in the {Western package) plan settled In isolation.1!

The plan proposes tha West and East Berlin be unit ed by free elections, and the unified city be guaranteed by the Big Four. This would be the first step toward German reunification. 11, PRESS.TELEGRAM-A 100% VIRGIN NYLONC Complefely Installed Over Best Rubberized Pad 5-Year Wear Guarantee "3 DAYS ONLY" Lakewood Carpets 16704 LAKE WOOD BOULEVARD CALL TOrrty 7-7214 Bess Truman Has Surgery for Tumor (Continued from Page A-l) enter the elevator to return to the fifth floor.
