Dulles, Molofov Discuss Atomic Power Proposal Conference Follows Regular Session Of Big 4 Ministers By JOHN M. HlGHTOWER BERLIN foreign minis- ters of the United States and the Soviet Union meet tonight in the first top level discussion of Presi- dent Eisenhower's proposal to put atomic power to work for peaceful purposes. Over cocktails and caviar last night Russia's V. M. Molotov and America's John Foster Dulles ar- ranged to come to grips with the problem of how to make nuclear energy an aid to better living in- stead of a horrible device for sud- den death. Molotov and Dulles will meet again tonight after the regular ses- sion of the Big Four foreign minis- ters. They will have with them only a minimum number of advis- ers and interpreters.

The decision to hold an atomic meeting tonight was taken at a inner in the Soviet sector bead- uarters of Molotov, where Dulles nd top American staff members rere his guests. Only an hour earlier they had. :ft the conference table where ley bad battled over whether j-ermans from both sides of the ron Curtain should sit with them, in discussing Germany's future. Molotov had demanded that the Germans be seated.

S." But in view of the content of both articles, such ami- abilities sound a little like a purr- ing of a man-eating tiger. The author of the first, and most important, article is identified only as "a general in the reserves." Yet the fact that the anonymous general's article appeared prom- inently in Izvestia, one of Mos- cow's two great official newspap- ers, lends it undoubted authority. The article is addressed specifical- ly to Secretary Dulles' speech of Jan. 12, in which Dulles sought to defend and explain the increasing reliance on atomic weapons in American defense and foreign pol- icy planning. This Dulles speech represented, of course, official Eis- enhower administration doctrine, is no doubt that the re ply in Izvestia represents the of- ficial doctrine of the Malenkov re- gime. "In the'United the anon- ymous general points out, accur- ately enough, "a great deal is writ- ten on the so-called 'inter- or 'trans-ocean' strat- egy. The authors of these theoret- ical exercises picture a war as if their adversaries had no ircans of embarking on this kind of strat- egy." "Would it not be the gen- eral asks mildly, assume the At this'point, the tiger shows its claws. The general points out, more in sorrow than in anger, that in case cf war the territories of America's allies "must become, ruthlessly and inevitably, theaters of mili- tary operations upon which the destructive forces of modern weap- ons will descend with all their pow- er." But this warning is more or less incidental. The central point of the article is a reminder to the United States that the American continent is no longer invulnerable.

The commission said it plans to introduce the new heating system as part of an expansion program now under way at its Hanford, Wash., plutonium-making plant. It will be hooked up to a new produc- tion reactor under construction there. The AEC said the new heating system would save Uncle Sam the cost of IV4 million gallons of oil annually. The commission told about it in its report to Congress. In the same report the AEC also disclos- ed first details of its previously-an- nounced plan to build the cation's first large-scale atomic power re- actor in the quest for economical! industrial power from the atom.

The Christian Democrat press par was pointing to a strong contender: Alcide de Gasperi, the lean old statesman who guided Italy through eight years of stable gov ernmenf after the war until last June's shattering elections. These cost De Gasperi and his Christian Democrats nearly two million votes, greatly increased the strength of the left and right in Parliament and broke up the four- party coalition which De Gasperi ad' welded. Fanfani lashed out bitterly at the Communists and pro-Communists in the final debate, calling Com- munist leader Palmiro Togliatti and pro-Communist Socialist lead- er Pietro Nenni "Volga sturgeons." French Foreign Minister Georges Bidault said the two regimes in Communist East and the democratic so far apart he did not think their presence would contribute much to a settlement. He deplored the lack of German representation but said "It is better than to see them tear themselves to pieces before fcur eyes."

Diplomatic informants who disclosed this today said an Ameri- can note laying down this condition would, in effect, be a rejec- tion of a Communist proposal that the Panmunjom talks resume Mon- day. The American reply, now being cleared with America's 16 Korean War partners, is expected to go out either today or Sunday.

Baby Sitter, 14, Loses Temper, Kills Charge 8 DES MOINES Deputy Sheriff Tod Lyons said today a 14-year-old boy has admitted he fatally shot the 8-year-old lad with whom he was baby-sitting because he lost his temper when the younger boy wouldn't stay in bed.

Lyons quoted Garry's statement as "saying "I thought I had the safety on" when he pointed the gun at Bobby. "Bobby just stood there and I brought my hand slowly back to the trigger." the statement said. "I thought then that Bobby would go to bed, but he wouldn't so I pulled the trigger." Garry earlier had said the shot- gun went off while Bobby was examining it. No charge has ijeen filed. Volfs Hit Joseph Gratis, Electrician 1st Fatal Accident In History of Milling Firm Joseph P. Graus, 46, 1875 W. 4th St., was electrocuted at the Bay State Milling Co. about a.m. today while working alone on an automatic switch box on the sixth floor of Mill A. Company officials stated that he suffered a shock of volts. Fel- low employes and the Winona fire department unsuccessfully at- tempted to revive him with arti- ficial and mechanical resuscita- tion. He is survived by his wife and :wo daughters. Graus was a licensed journey- man electrician and had been era- ployed at Bay State since June 16, 1945. It was the first fatal acci- dent in the company's history. Power Shorted Out The accident shorted out all jower in the building which led S. R. Brotherton, vice president in charge of production, who was on the floor at the time, to investi- gate. He discovered the body wedged into the switch box. Marvin Shaw, assistant superin- :endent, applied artificial respira- ion until the fire department ar- ived. Winona County "Coroner Dr. lobert B. Tweedy pronounced death accidental. Graus was experienced with high maintenance and had pull- id fuses oo the operating mechan- sm, but evidently forgot that tha back of the switch was still alive, company officials said.

Court of Appeals Gives New York Seaway Go-Ahead WASHINGTON Wl Only possible obstacle remained today to block New York State from join- ing with the Province of Ontario in building a giant St. Lawrence River power project. The U. S. Court of Appeals Fri- day unanimously affirmed the ac- tion of the Federal Power Com- mission in granting the Power Authority of New York a license to participate in the 600-million-dollar intern ational development. The project is considered a necessary preliminary to the St. Lawrence Seaway. Opponents of the New York par- ticipation, barring an unlikely re- hearing fry the court of appeals, can now look only to the Supreme Court for a reversal of the lower court's ruling. But even attorneys for the ob- jectors 'agreed it is a moot ques- ion whether or not the high court would, if asked, agree to consider he case. Attorneys for the groups oppos- ng New York the Lake Ontario Land Owners Beach Protective Assn. Inc., the Central Pennsyl- vania Coal Producers Assn., and he Public Power Water Corp., >enton, N.
