Y. strange noise awak- ened1 Nat Wynn Sunday. He yawned, slipped on his slippers, trotted downstairs, and found his living room had vanished. Where the living room used to be there now was ocean water wall-to-wall ocean water lapping at the draperies. WYNN TROTTED back upstairs, told his wife, Edith, that the living room was gone. She yawned and asked where he thought it might have gone. He said he didn't know. So he called police to report a missing living room. While Mrs. Wynn and their daughter, Marjorie, huddled in the upstairs front of the stucco house, Wynn and police investi- gated. Also vanished: a 60- foot strip of the Wynn lawn, the den, a dock and cabana. Atlantic Beach is on the west tip of Long Beach, an island just off the coast of Long Island and not far from the New York City limits in Queens. Long Beach is separated from the mainland by Reynold's Channel. And Reynold's Channel is where Wynn's living room had gone. Wynn and the police spotted a huge dredge busy deepening and widening the channel about. 200 feet out. The dredged sand was being pumped around to an eroded beach on the Atlan- tic Ocean side of the is- land.

He is expected to ad- dress the congress Tuesday. The Hungarian party chief declared Soviet troops remain in Hungary because of the world's failure to settle inter- national issues. He said the government advocates mutual withdrawal of foreign troops an obvious reference to U.S. forces in Europe. KADAR SAID that even if Soviet troops were withdrawn his regime is strong enough to defend itself against "the enemy within." Then in direct reference to the 1956 anti- Soviet uprising he added: "If the reactionaries want to fight again we shall not ba against it, because the Hun- ;arian people have strength and have quite a number of scores to pay off against the (Continued Page A-3, Col. 5) room floor, the furniture and the rest into the chan- nel.
