Supreme Court today District Judge Gustavus Loevinger of St. Paul and ruled unanimously that salary increases voted by the 1953 Legislature for district judges are valid without the consent of the governor. The high court emphasized that the state Constitution states in "clear, explicit and unambiguous language" that the Legislature not the authority to fix salaries of district and supreme court judges. The Legislature passed two bills to increase pay of district judges the signature of the governor is not a necessary prerequisite to the validity of an act of the Legislature prescribing such salaries. The decision quotes these words from the Constitution: "The judges of the district court shall receive such compensation at stated times as may be prescribed by the Legis- lature."

"Somebody always has some other little idea he wants to get George said in an interview. "They're still hoping they can get Bricker to agree to something. But don't think any compromise is possible with John now." Sen.

If Manion is fired, it will be just about the first time that Dwight D. Eisen- hower has followed the old poli- tical rule, "You can't just pretend not to notice when they spit in your face." On the other hand, although the loquacious Dr. Manion is not an especially important figure, the reasons for cracking down on him are extremely important. Professional Orator The facts may be briefly stated. Manion is an ex-Democrat and ex- Dean of the Notre Dame Law School, who is now a professional orator before extreme right-wing Republican audiences. His present political views would make Sen. Bricker himself seem a Socialist by contrast. He was chosen to head the President's Commission on In- ter-Governmental Relationships to pursue an independent path in its foreign policy despite friendly overtures from Russia since last spring after Stalin's death. But he also made it clear he would not part company with the West, which came to this country's aid after its break with the Cominform in 1948. from an examination of Article 5, (Continued on Page 9, Column 2) JUDGES James Roosevelt's Wife Asks Separate Maintenance in Suif BERLIN _ Russia and PASADENA, Calif. wife three Western Allies agreed today Russia, West Agree To Consider Rival Disarmament Pleas of James Roosevelt, eldest son of the late President, has filed a suit for separate maintenance in which she names three other women as co-respondents.

Nations, with the aim of reaching substantial agreements which will permit calling a geneial dis- armament conference under con- ditions favorable to success." There was no official word of what Molotov had said to shift the parley onto the subject of disarm- ament but there was considerable speculation that he may have brought up his own plan to spike the warring world's guns. After Bidault spoke, Britain's Foreign Secretary Eden took the floor indicating that whether the West liked it or not the conference faced a full scale debate on a topic that wasn't even on the agenda. Under conference regulations Molotov would have the right t take the floor directly after Eden finished. The big question toda was whether he would join in th Germany or try to dra try to fix responsibility for an order which, he said, the White House issued in 1944 for destruction of some naval intelligence files on Communist activities. This new turn in the Communist- hunting subcommittee's probes was the aftermath of Jenner's account of the episode to a dinner gathering here last night attended by Vice President Nixon and some i 400 other guests. j This is how Jenner, the sub-1 committee chairman, related the j story of the files: Unit Built Up I They had been built up by a STavy counter-intelligence unit in New York which had an under- cover contact in the Communist organization, he said, and "had the basic information on Commu- nists in the maritime units, Com- munists on the waterfront and Communists in the convoys that went to Russia itself." Victor Kravchenko, an official of the Soviet purchasing commission who broke with his Communist government, sought out Morris to give him information, Jenner said. However, after one contact, he added, Washington sent orders to "let .Kravchenko alone." Continuing, Jenner said word reached New York that the coun- ter-intelligence unit was to be broken up. Morris went to Wash- ington to protest but, Jenner went jn, "within a few days" the mem- Ders of the unit were scattered "to ie four corners of the and iie files were ordered destroyed. Blames White House Morris was transferred to the leadquarters of Adm, Chester Nimitz, commander of the Pacific Fleet. Jenner said Morris told Nimitz about the breaking up of the intel- igence unit and Nimitz took up the matter with Adm. Ernest j. King, then chief of naval opera- tions, when King came to the Pacific on a visit a little later. Jenner said he got the rest of the story recently from an officer whom he would not name but who Gen. Nathan P. Twining, Air Force Chief of Staff, spoke at an "air power" banquet in Madison, Wis., Thursday night on the need for a stronger air defense of our northern frontiers. Left to right, Rep.

The complaint was signed by Lincoln D. Schroeder, dairy farmer near here. Schroeder said Bennett had signed a promissory note for a loan last July, promising "The best and perhaps the only way to prevent Soviet bomber from imposing terrible destructio on the United States is to main tain the balance of long range air power in our favor." Makes Madison Speech Twining spoke before 450 person at an air power banquet sponsorec by the Madison Chamber of Com merce and Foundation. The aud ience included Gpv. Kohler, Rep. Davis of Wisconsin and a delega- tion of 35 from Monroe. Other speakers were Air Force division chiefs, Maj. Gen. Richard A.

The West, with Secretary Dulles in the chair, had intended to bring up the German question immediately aft- er the session opened. Word from behind the closed doors of the conference hall, how- ever, was that Molotov immedi- ately took the floor and upset the apple cart. Thereupon, Bidault of- fered'his resolution, calling for an posal at the close of Thursday session that the Big Four call a disarmament conference of both United Nations members and "the nonmember states" in other words, Red China. Many Other Proposals American sources viewed th new disarmament proposal as a Soviet propaganda trick 'to impress Red China and to put new pres- end of hostilities and for condem-1 sure on the West for a meeting nation of any encouragement or support of aggression. It presu- mably was aimed at putting new pressure on the Communist world to end the war in Indochina, Bidault did not suggest a date or period of time for the confer- ence. Molotov had proposed that a disarmament meeting be held this year. The French resolution did spec- fy that the conference should con- form to the U.N. General Assembly resolution of Jan. U, 1952, thus making the U.N. the actual spon- ;or. That resolution directed the J.N. Disarmament Commission to continue its work on conventional arms and atomic weapons in ac- cordance with previous Assembly decisions. No Word Prom Mofstov One of the key sections of Bi- lault's resolution would put the Jig Four on record as "proclaim- ng that the support and encour- gement of aggression must be ondeiaiied and banned with the ,im of ending all hostilities." The resolution then would have 3e four "commit themselves to oin their efforts, in the Disarma- ment Commission of the United bypassing the United Nations, which won't admit Peiping. The Soviets have made many disarmament proposals in the U.N in the past. The West has turned them all down as paper promises rather than secure safeguards against war-breeding violations.

Selection of Warmath to succeed Wes Fesler, who resigned in De- cember, came as a startling sur- prise. He had not been mentioned n speculation surrounding the nam- ing of a new coach. Warmath teams won five games and lost four in 1952 at Mississippi State and won five, lost two and tied three in 1953. Before going to Mississippi State in late 1951, Warmath was line coach at West Point during the .949, 1950 and 1951 seasons under Red Blaik. Considered in 1950 Warmath had been in Minneapo- is in 1950 to be interviewed when Jernie Bierman resigned. Warmath is 41.

"The growing strength of enemy long range air power makes these defensive fighters and their bases more necessary than ever. "Plans for the 137-wing Air Force to be achieved in the next three years call for a rapid in- crease in the number of defensive fighter units. Most of these units will be employed on both new and old air bases across the northern frontier, for the protection of this region and all of the United States." The Air Force is reported to be conducting an extensive survey of sites along the northern edge of the United States, in the Canadian border area, to determine which existing fields could be converted to use for high speed jet fighters.

His appointment ended frenized speculation about the Minnesota coaching selection, which intensi- fied after Oklahoma's Bud Wilkin- son turned down the job. President J. L. Morrill of Minne- sota said Warmath "strikes me as a deaneut and impressive teacher of football who will represent our university with credit on the grid- iron. .and who will play the game with full understanding and support of university policies and Western Conference rules." Takes Effect Immediately War-math's appointment takes ef- fect immediately. He was not pres- ent at a news conference at which the appointment was announced. Warmath, a native of Humbolt, Tenn., played football at the Uni- versity of Tennessee from 1932 to 1934. In 1935 he was named end coach at Tennessee. He served as assistant line coach there in 1938 and 1939 when he became line taiis regarding the emphasis on coach at Mississippi Stats.
