POWERS WASHINGTON Wl Republican Gov. C. Elmer Anderson of Minne sola today brushed aside questions as to whether he will try to unsea Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey (D) in next year's election. One of the prime issues con fronting Minnesota Republicans is to find a strong candidate agains Humphrey who will be seeking his second six year term in the Sen- ate. Asked by a reporter if he in tended to enter the Senate race Anderson replied with a smile: "That is a good question." He said he did not wish to make any comment on the matter. How- ever, he conceded thare has been 'all kinds of discussion" about his possible entry into the race, Anderson also said the Minne- sota Young Republicans recently endorsed him for the Senate. The governor flew here late Wednesday in a National Guard plane to discuss National Guard matters with officials and to at- tend a highway conference spons. ored by the United States Chamber of Commerce. The governor was accompanied by Minnesota Adjt, Gen. Joseph E< Nelson and his secretary, James Faber, He said he had no plans to see President Eisenhower while here. He also said he had no appoint- ment with any officials of the Re- publican National Committee. Referring to Eisenhower's ad- dress before the United Nations- calling for an international atomic energy agency, Anderson said "it was a great speech. I feel that something like that was necessary at this time." Friday evening he will attend a reception at the Statler Hotel which is being sponsored in his honor by former Minnesotans now living here.

Police Chief Harvey Cross said two young white men were taken to an undisclosed jail for questioning. Sheriff Hanna said he was hold- ing three men, including two Negroes, in the Florence County jail. But he emphasized no charges had been placed against them. Hanna said a wallet and watch were missing from Allen's person. The boy's relatives said he had both when he left home Sunday to go on a date with the girl. The sheriff said the girl's head and Allen's body were badly beat- en. Officers said Allen's face was "so badly beaten that it was hardly recognizable."

Witness Ejected From McCarthy Spy Hearing WASHINGTON The capitol lolice today ejected a witness from Senate hearings on alleged spying at Ft. Monmouth, N.

McCarthy (R- presiding at the hearings be- ussia io Ato mic Congress Fears Red Trickery on Atomic Controls Lawmakers Will Go Easy on Lifting Secrecy Safeguards WASHINGTON of pos- sible" Russian trickery threatened today to impede future congres- sional approval for President Ei- senhower's proposal to pool atom- ic energy materials and know- how for peace purposes. Although Eisenhower told ..._ United Nations he had "every ex- pectation of approval" by Cun- gress of a plan to encourage world- wide, nonmilitary atomic develop- ments, some lawmakers foresaw difficulties. Many lawmakers, however, bailed the Eisenhower proposal as a bold stroke for peace, and as one which would test the Russians' intentions. At the U. N., Chief Soviet Dei- egate Andrei Vishinsky said it would be impossible to insure the jse of atomic energy for peace without strict international control of weapons. In Congress, Sen. Potter (R- Mich) said he thinks the "danger spot" in the proposed international program lies in inability of this :ountry to exact any guarantee that Soviet Russia will live up to any agreement it might He added in an interview: "The President certainly has a good idea if it can be accomplished but I don't see how we are ever going to be certain that the Soviets will Jive up to any pledges they may make.

Control Plans LONDON spokesmen gave strong indications last night that the Kremlin wants no part of President Eisenhower's proposal for an atomic energy pool for peaceful uses. There was no "official" reply from (he Soviet government, but a top propaganda commentator'on Moscow radio, Boris Leontyev, described the American proposal as a rehash of the Baruch atomic control plan the Russians have always rejected. Leontyev added that the U. S. President had "threatened atomic war." In the United Nations Assembly, Russian Delegate Andrei Y. Vish- insky declared: "You cannot in- sure the use of atomic energy for peaceful purposes without uncon- ditional prohibition and strict in- ternational control (of atomic U.N. deliberations on atomic energy control have been dead- locked for several years by Rus- sia's insistence on an immediate ban. and the West's counterdemand for a workable control and in- spection system first. West for Plan The initial Soviet reaction came as the Western world generally applauded Ihe plan, outlined by Eisenhower Tuesday in a speech before the U.N. Assembly. News- papers in India also welcomed it j as a "rent, however small, in the 'atomic curtain." Although some Western still expressed a faint hope that the official Soviet answer might be more favorable, the first Rus- sian comment obviously had been cleared with Kremlin propaganda and foreign affairs authorities be- fore it was made public. Outlining his plan for a U.N. commission to which atomic pow- ers, including Russia, would con- tribute fissionable materials and skill for peaceful purposes that would benefit the whole world, Ei- senhower warned that man must control atomic power or it will destroy him. He declared the growing U.S. tockpile of atomic weapons "ex- ceeds by many times the ex- plosive equivalent of all bombs and shells dropped or fired all over the world during World War II." Seizing on this part of the speech, Leontyev said: "There is a spate of phrases on an alleged desire for peace on the part of the United States But if you analyze his speech, Eisenhower threatened atomic war and made a eulogy of this policy of force."

UP) A verdict for in favor of James E. Briggs, 41, railroad fireman of Olwein, Iowa, was returned again- st the Chicago, Great Western railway today by a jury in Mower County District Court, It was the second trial. Briggs became blind in May, 1949, 11 months after he allegedly bumped his head while working on a diesel engine. It was claimed blindness resulted from a pre- existing case of diabetes. At the first trial a jury in Austin allowed the fireman 500. The railroad appealed and the Minnesota Supreme Court last March granted a new trial on grounds that Eugene A.

This plan, calling for an inter- national system of control and in- spection leading to outlawing of atomic weapons, has been ap- proved by the majority of U. N. member nations but has repeatedly run into a Russian veto. In a later English language broadcast beamed to North Amer- ica, another Moscow radio com- mentator. Konstantine Orlov said the striking thing about Eisen- hower's speech wa.s "the utter lack of concrete proposals on how to make those general desires and wishes" for peace into reality. "Yet even Edgar Bergen's Mortimer Snerd ought to Orlov continued, "that the ban- ning of atomic and hydrogen bombs is a cardinal point about the whole atomic problem which Eisenhower spoke of." Moscow's Communist party newspaper Pravda also raised the same point after an 800-word sum- mary of the main points of the President's speech. At the end of its Pravda commented only: "How- ever, the President in his speech did not express his attitude to- ward the question of outlawing atomic weapons." ;
