Ask Men Be Released West Berlin Police Chief Jo- hannes Stumm in reporting the strikes said the men were demand- ing release of all workers arrested in the June 17 revolt. Earlier reports of the sitdowns touched off speculation that a new workers' march on the government would materialize, much in the manner of the June 17 uprising which shook the Red world and brought Soviet armored legions pouring into East Berlin.. This time, however, the East Germans apparently tried the peaceful sitdown protest rather than risk further bloody clashes with Communist arms.

German Riots, Bermuda Conference WASHINGTON !tf> President Eisenhower said today this govern- ment looks forward to and intends to work for the peaceful re-unifi- cation of Korea. The President declined at h i s news conference, however, to say whether .he has received any in- dication that South Korean Presi- dent Syngman Rhee might be wil- ling to go along with the proposed armistice. And he declared that at this point no man can tell how the troubles in Korea are going to come' out. Efcenhower noted at the start of his conference that the Com- munists have announced willing- ness to proceed with truce ar- rangements, in line with the U. N. proposal of June 29. That proposal, submitted to ths Reds by Gen. Mark W. Clark, called for proceeding without the South Koreans if necessary. Eisenhower said he wanted to make it clear that every one in the U. S. understands the aspira- tions of Rhee, who has balked at signing an armistice unless it calls for unification of North and South Korea. Warm Spot The President said every one has a warm spot in their hearts for all that South Korea has dona in the three-year old struggle against Communist aggressions. Then he went on to say we look forward to reunification of Korea by peaceful means and intend to work for it. The President also: 1. Commenting on the uprisings in East Germany, said he finds it very significant that representa- tives of two great American labor organizations have asked him to take the initiative in aiding work- ers of Soviet-occupied Germany in their struggle against Soviet total- itarianism. The appeal, he added, is signif- icant because the Communists claim that workers in Soviet-con- trolled areas are living in a work- ers' paradise. 2. Declared the time has come to give the American people more information about the atomic en- ergy program. The present law covering that matter is outmoded, he said, and it is time to be more frank with the people. 3. Said, he would have no real objection to traveling to London, instead of Bermuda, for a Big Three conference with British and I French leaders. He added, how- ever, that he has received no pro- posal that such a switch be made. 4. Declined to express any view I on the possible outcome of guber- inatorial elections in either Penn- sylvania or Virginia. His policy, I the president said, is to keep hands I off local and state elections. 5. Said Secretary of the Interior McKay is trying to find the best possible man to serve as Indian, commissioner. The President said he promised the Indian tribes dur- ing the campaign they would ba consulted regarding that appoint- ment and that will be done. 6. Said, regarding the controver- sy over removal of books from j U. S. overseas libraries, that he could not go along with State De- partment officials who reportedly i have kept directives on the sub- ject secret on grounds the whole matter comes under the heading of cold war strategy. 7. Said that in the case of de- velopment of Niagara River power, Congress has reserved to itself the right to decide the the power is to be developed. He added he would have nothing to say re- garding the matter until a bill comes to his desk. Said he believes strongly in unification of Germany and strong- ly favors free elections there. In that connection, he said the plan for development of a European Defense Community has no danger to anyone in the world except in the case of someone planning to attack its members. 9. Said he is confident the U. S. can have a peaceful economy that is also a prosperous economy. He made that statement when asked whether a truce in Korea might .jeopardize the American economy.
