(AP Wirephoto) Russia Agrees to Discuss A-Power By WARREN ROGERS JR. WASHINGTON United States and Russia were day on starting preliminary aioms-for-peace talks in Washington, but the important question of timing was still up in the air. The Soviets announced the agreement last eight in Moscow and the State Department quickly confirmed it. Six Men Killed In Navy Plane Crash in Panama Through Italy Mrs. Luce Urges Continued American Economic Help WASHINGTON Wi Ambassador Clare Boothe Luce has cautioned top officials here there is new danger in Italy of slowly rising Communist strength, it was learned today. Mrs. Luce, who conferred yes- terday with President .Eisenhower, is reported to be urging continued American economic and military aid to Italy to bolster its pro-West- ern government. Neither Mrs. Luce nor the Presi- dent, reliable sources said, be- lieves there is any imminent threat that Italy's already power- ful Communist party can seize power. The ambassador is confident, it is said, that the current political crisis caused by Italian Premier Giuseppe Fella's resignation can be solved quickly without playing into Communist hands. However, she is reported con- cerned about the long range threat posed to Italian democracy by the lew, non-vioient tactics adopted by Italy's Reds.

Bodin, fed- eral-state agricultural statistician, reported today. A sharp increase in hog prices was mainly responsible for the advance, Bodin's report said, al- though higher prices for corn and soybeans contributed significantly. Most prominent of the declines were those shown for eggs, beef cattle and wholesale milk.

ARROWSMITH WASHINGTON President Eisenhower said today new tax cuts "can and will be made" as spending is cut and he told Congress America's defense plans are geared to use of atomic weapons "if they are needed to preserve our freedom." The President, in his state of the union message, outlined a program he said would build the military might of the United States, bolster other free nations against Communism, and maintain a healthy economy at home.

Halleck of Indiana, tha House Republican leader, said it "outlined a program geared to the hopes and aspirations of the Amer- ican people for a prosperity based on peace instead of war." Rep. Arends, House GOP whip or assistant leader, said the message "will prove to be historic in this new Republican era of eco- nomic and governmental recon- struction." Rep. Rayburn of Texas, the Housa Democratic leader, pretty well summed up for the minority. He said the message made "few, if any, specific recommendations oa major subjects" and added: "We still will have to wait to see what President Eisenhower's program is." In his address to an election year Congress almost evenly di- vided politically, the President also: a federal spending budget of about for the fiscal year starting July about 12 billion dollars less than the original Truman administra- tion budget for the current year. for legislation to strip U.
