LOUIS investigators, veiling their inquiries behind closed doors, today continued digging into reports the FBI has dis- covered discrepancies in police accounts of the Greenlease kidnaping case.

He will renew the Korean War if his country has not been unified by a political conference or other means within three months time, He has the power to make good his threat, despite rather desperate American efforts to gain a hold on ically for 10 hours as the inquiry got under way yesterday. The investigation by Chief of Po- lice Jeremiah O'Conneli centers around the handling of two suit- cases in which about half of the ransom money was recov- ered. Some is still miss- Ins. Patrolman Elmer Dolan, who O'Conneli said is not under sus- pension nor held on any charge, was the first witness called in the closed-door probe. Lt. Louis Shoulders, Dolan's su- perior officer in the arrest, was under a physician's care for a nervous condition and was report- ed unable to appear for question- ing at this time. But Chief O'Conneli said Should- ers will be questioned "as soon as his doctor says it will be all right to do so." Dolan, one of three witnesses questioned yesterday, was asked AMES, Iowa Iowa State College students, rebuffed in their second demand for a holiday to celebrate a homecoming foot- ball victory, returned to classes again today. For the second straight night ap- proximately impatient stu- dents poured out over the sprawl- ing campus, marched to the presi- dent's house, then blocked U. S. 30 the transcontinental Lincoln Highway. The student exuberance was touched off Sunday night by Iowa State's 13-6 grid triumph over Mis- souri last Saturday. About students, demanding Monday off, wildly demonstrated while police tossed tear gas bombs in a vain effort to dispell the throng. The students erupted anew Mon- day night. Neither Ames nor state peace officers appared to chal- lenge them. When their demands for cancellation of Monday's class- es were denied they shouted for "Tuesday Dr. James Hilton, college presi- dent, appealed to the crowd, which he estimated at Monday night, to disperse in an orderly manner and go home. Dr. Hilton said it might be pos- sible to dismiss classes for the Parents Day football game with Nebraska Nov. 7. He urged the students to go through proper ad- ministrative channels to get their requested holiday. When somebody shouted, "Do we get Sunday off the crowd marched off to the Lincoln High- way, stoked up a bonfire as onj Sunday, and piled lengths of steel water main across the road. A few students sat astride the pipes while two boys and two girls reposed in the middle of the high- way playing bridge by the light of a street lamp.

The contrast was really too ex- treme between the speaker, with his air of being a benevolent Kore- an professor emeritus, and his words, with their portent of war. But then one remembered how Rhee had submitted to torture and exile, how ho had fought by fair means and foul, how he had in- trigued and bullied and defied the world, and all in this same cause.

Hutcheson, 79, general president of the AFL Carpenters Union for 36 years and a towering figure in the American labor movement, died in Methodist Hospital here today of a heart ailment. The veteran labor leader was brought to the hospital Oct. 12 for a stomach examination and suf- fered a heart attack Oct. 15 before the stomach tests were completed. He had been in critical condition since. Hutcheson, one of the few Re- publicans among top union offi- cials, stepped down from the ac- tive presidency of the ber union Jan. l, 1952, and was succeeded by his son, Maurice A. Hutcheson. The elder Hutcheson was named general president eme- ritus. It was only a few months after his retirement that Hutcheson be- came involved in one of the bitter- est fights of his career as an In- diana delegate to the Republican convention in Chicago.

Employes Given Compensation j Students Clash Dulles Discusses Problem With Ike J In Big 3 Report By JOHN SCALI WASHINGTON w The United States and Britain reportedly have decided to slow down evacuation of their troops from disputed Tri- este while they try to resolve Italy's and Yugoslavia's bitter quarrel over the area. Secretary of State Dulles had an appointment to review this po- tentially explosive problem with President Eisenhower today in a personal report on the London Big Three foreign ministers' confer- ence. Dulles was also reported set to give the President first-hand ac- counts of proposed Western moves to deal with touchy situations in three other Ger- many-Austria and the Israeli bor- der. Diplomatic officials familiar with the Trieste maneuvering said Ei- senhower and Dulles both believed it would be best to move slowly in evacuating some American and British troops now garrison- ing Zone A. The idea was that a slowdown would lessen the chance that Mar- shal Tito would make good his threat to move his troops into the Allied zone rather than let Italian forces take over in accordance with the U. S.-British proposal of last week. It would also give American, British and French diplomats time to arrange an acceptable basis for a conference with Yugoslavia and Italy. Informed diplomats emphasized any decision to delay U.S.-British evacuation would in no way mean the two powers are backing down in their decision to turn over the zone to Italian control. This was the American view of other key world problems which Dulles was reported ready to give the President: State Department favors sending Special Ambassa- dor Arthur Dean to Panmunjom Thursday on schedule to discuss a Korean peace conference with the Communists, even though the latest Red China note on this is regarded as unsatisfactory. Dean would be empowered to listen to Communist demands that neutrals such as India be included in the peace parley but could make no commitments, only report back to Washington for a final decision. GERMANY-AUSTRIA Dulles believes there is only a slim chance the Russians would agree to at- tend a Big Four foreign ministers conference at Lugano, Switzerland, Nov. 9 to discuss peace settle- ments for Austria and Germany. The Big Three powers formally invited Russia to do so in identical notes sent over the weekend. takes an extremely grave view of Israel's alleged violations along its fron- tiers of United Nations decisions and also of the Israeli determina- tion to make Jerusalem her capi- tal. Dulles, it was learned, personal- ly informed Israel's ambassador, Abba Eban the United States will withhold some 60 million dollars in economic aid until the new Jew- ish state changes its attitude. The secretary notified Eban of this move after Israel refused to slop trying to divert waters from the River Jordan along the Syrian frontier, despite a United Nations ruling it .should do so. LONDON W Four Americans fired from United Nations jobs for failing to answer U.S. loyalty probe questions about alleged Commu- nist ties have been awarded in compensation. The payments were ordered Mon- day night by the U.N, adminis- trative tribunal, a kind of appeals court for staff members of the International organization. The tri- bunal previously had ruled their ousters illegal and demanded their reinstatement. The compensation was requested as an alternative under U.N. rules when Secretary General Dag Ham- marskjold announced he would not accept the tribunal's call for their rehiring. The four awarded compensation are: Alexander Svenchansky, 44, a Russian-speaking expert formerly with the U.N. radio division, award- ed Hope Sldridge, 49, statistician, Eda Glaser, 43, clerk-typist, 500. Ruth Crawford, 52, information officer, ROME, police beat back protesting Italian stu- dents in front of the Russian em- bassy today as demonstrations over the disputed Free Territory of Trieste broke out in various parts of Rome. The students answered the police club attacks with sticks. Many of the demonstrators were bruised but no serious injuries were re- ported. Hundreds paraded elsewhere, carrying Italian flags, angrily shouting against Yugoslav Presi- dent Tito's stand on Trieste and demanding the strategic Adriatic peninsula be returned to Italy. Some of the demonstrators marched past the Yugoslav lega- tion near the heart of the city but no violence was reported as mobile riot police guarded the building. It was the first demonstration in Rome on the Trieste issue since the United States and Britain an- nounced Oct. 8 they planned to pull out their occupation troops from Zone A of the Free Territory, including the port city of Trieste, and turn the area over to Italian administration.
