ARABS UNITE In Iraq, Jordan King Feisal Named Federation Head In Crosley Statement Parking Plan Jolted ; -X xy -; City To Hold Up Land Purchases For Pact Signing By Joe Green Enquirer Reporter City Council's $2 million parking plan to keep the Red-legs in Cincinnati appeared to have been blown sky-high yesterday for the time being at least. The jolt to the emergency program to provide adequate parking space at Crosely Field came in an announcement by Powel Crosley Jr., club owner, that he was in no hurry to execute a contract with the city to guarantee that the team would remain here for at least five years. The Crosley statement asserted that because "of the obstacles that have been placed in the way of the city, there can be no assurance there will not be delays that will prohibit the city from purchasing the land In time to make it available for the 1958 season." States Will Have Same Constitution, Army, Government AMMAN, Jordan, Feb. 14 (UP) The youthful Kings of Iraq and Jordan signed their countries into a one-flag "Arab Federal nation" today and named King Feisal of Iraq as its head. The union will give the two pro-Western Arab states a single constitution, federal government, foreign office and army but will permit King Hussein of Jordan and Feisal to retain their crowns as rulers of their countries' Internal affairs. Although both are 22 years old and are of equal rank as cousins in the Hashemite family, Hussein gave Feisal the title of head of the federal government because Iraq is the larger and stronger nation. Will Egypt's Natter be tha bid; winner in Arab federations? That's the view of one expert in an article on Page 3. Britain and Egypt both sent congratulations.

The State Department issued a carefully worded statement saying it welcomed any Arab unity moves taken in accordance with the desires and welfare of the people involved. The union was much tighter than expected. It was nearly as close-knit as the Egyptian-Syrian United Arab Republic proclaimed last ,. rek. It did not hind either Iraq to foreign commitments already made by the other, but an informed source) said Feisal had agreed to give up Iraq's membership In the Baghdad Pact 18 months from now If the union worked smoothly. Feisal, who had spent three days here working out the arrangement with Hussein, returned home to Baghdad. Both proclaimed weekend national holidays. Crowds paraded through the streets of the two capitals waving flags, cheerirg and dancing. King Saud of Sandl Arabia remained or from the new union, as he had done in the case of the Egyptian-Syrian n rger, but he gave " his blessing in advance. the city to go along with the plans, issue the bondi and hold them, unsigned, until the club signed the agreement, Paul said: "We don't expect the city to spend a pennv of the money on the plan until we sign the agreement. It aeems that the bonds could be held In abeyance until things are worked out." Further discussing the city's position, Farrell declared: "If Council wants to repeal the ordinance, it can be done by a simple majority. "If the bonds are not Issued by July 15, when the new budget has to be In, we would get into budgetary complications, which would almost make it necessary as a practical matter to repeal the ordinance and pass a new one." MORE STUDY URGED The Crosley statement which upset proponents of the plan to provide 2600 parking spaces expressed appreciation of the club's directors for cooperation of Council. Harrell and the County Stadium Advisory Committee. "Since the club is not entertaining any thoughts of moving its franchise at this time, it is felt that greater study should be made of some items in the contract proposed by the city, particularly boundaries of the area in which property might be purchased, the statement said. "Some of the areas within the boundaries are too distant to Crosley Field to be practical for parking.-' (Mayor Clancy said later that the boundaries listed were selected merely to have something to work on, and that the, city intended to consult with the baseball club on suitability of any property before purchases.

"I had been stationed in Japan in 1934 and 1955." Wallace corresponded with Miss Kie, saw her at Thanksgiving and proposed on a Christmas visit. Meantime, Miss Kie completed her studies, received her bachelor of arts degree with a major in English literature and hied off to Cincinnati and Wallace. She came to America in September, 1954, and after a year at State Teachers College in Trenton, N. J., enrolled at Maryville College. After delays and some snarls in State Department red tape, Wallace married Miss Kie, who looked as delicate as a lotus flower in her Chinese dress and veil last night. Wallace's parents reside In Charlotte, N. C. The newlyweds will live at 1039 McPherson St., Price Hills. By Dave Hess Enquirer Reporter When Dan Cupid shoots an arrow, he doesn't take State Department regulations into consideration. So, after Charles A. Wallace, Cincinnati department store photographer, took Winifred Kie as his bride last night' at the Glen dale Presbyterian Church, he applied to immigration authorities for an adjustment of her student visa. The bride's parents are Chinese. She is a citizen of Indonesia. In Chinese, her name is Lian Hoa. Translated into English, it becomes lotus flower. Her parents live in Djakarta, Indonesia's capital, where her father is in business. Winifred Kie is her American name. The couple met last Memorial Day on a Greyhound bus. Mrs. Wallace then, Miss Kie, was traveling from Marysville College, near Knoxville, Tenn., to Chicago. Wallace, bound for the Indianapolis Speedway, climbed aboard the same bus in Cincinnati and sat down beside Miss Kie. By the time the bus arrived at Indianapolis, Wallace as TV case, and Scott was a member of the same firm and a director of Public Service. Harris said the committee was asking Mack to be available Wednesday, and hopes to get to him then. He said the committee was going to ask Mack to bring financial files with him. Mack, contending accusations against him are without foundation, asked the subcommittee today for an early opportunity to testify. Mack said he has volunteered to cooperate fully with the FBI in an investigation ordered by Atty. Gen. William P. Rogers in tbe wake of Schwartz's testimony. He told reporters he has given no thought to resigning his Federal Communications Commission post. Schwartz told the House group yesterday Mack has acknowledged getting "several thousand dollars" from Whiteside before FCC awarded a television license for Channel 10 in Miami to a National Airlines subsidiary. Whiteside was representing the television firm at the time, Schwartz said. WASHINGTON, Feb. 14 UPi-House investigators decided today to question four Florida men next Tuesday about allegations of a payoff in the Miami Channel 10 TV case, and to hear communications commissioner Richard A. Mack, Wednesday or Thursday. (L. B. Wilson, Inc., operators of radio station WfkV here, was one of the companies to lose out in the competition for the Miami franchise). Chairman Oren Harris (D., Ark.) of the investigating subcommittee said the four men being asked to appear Tuesday are Judge Robert Anderson, Paul Scott, Thurman A. Whiteside and Perrine Palmer. Whiteside is the lawyer named by Bernard Schwartz yesterday as having turned seyeral thousand dollars over to Mack. Palmer was mentioned In Schwartz' testimony as a close friend of Mack. Schwartz said Anderson was formerly a member of a law firm which represented Public Service Television, winner of the "Therefore, because of the anticipated delays and the probability that the parking areas will not be ready for this season, members of the board feel there is no need for haste in execution of the contract," the statement said. The statement expressed hope "even without a contract, that every effort will continue to he made to improve parking facilities immediately adjacent to Crosley Field." Although Crosley did not name the "obstacles that have been placed in the way of the city," it was assumed he referred to the efforts of the West End Community Council to obtain sufficient signatures on petitions by February 21 to force a vote on the $2 million bond issue in the November election. Somewhat flabbergasted, city officials hastened to announce that no money would be expended for buying property to carry out the plan until the Cincinnati Baseball Club Co. affixed signatures on the agreement, OFFICIALS COMMENT These comments were made immediately: City Manager C. A. Harrell: "I would not go forward with the purchase of property unless instructed to do so by City Council." Mayor Donald D. Clancy: "I would want an ironclad agreement before spending any money on the plan proposed in the ordinance." City Solicitor James W. Far-rell: "As a practical matter, the bonds wouldn't be issued unless the contract required is signed." The ordinance authorizing issuance of S2 million in bonds to pay for the additional parking space is due to beco:6 effective February 21. But Gabe Paul, general manager of the ball club, said he couldn't understand what "all the excitement was about." DETAILS REMAIN "There are still some minor details to be worked out," he Mid. "We must get together with the city and work them out. There Is no need for rushing anything." Reminded that Council acted with a certain urgency when it passed the ordinance in face of implications that the ball club might be moved from Cincinnati, Paul said: "You know there is a lot of red tape involved in working out a contract. You know clso, that changes have been made 'n contracts before final signing. I can't see the urgency for signing now." Asked whether he expected SNOWFALL Tunisia Clamps Base Blockade On 15,000 French Soldiers Is To Be Light Officials Mystified Boy Unaffected By Gas But Dad, Brother Die a fever, summoned U. S. Ambassador Amory Houghton to his home in Paris for a talk on the situation. Paris dispatches said they may have discussed a U. S. mediation effort. Bourguiba has said he would accept mediation, but French Foreign Minister Christian Pineau said earlier in the day that France did not want mediation. A French Foreign Ministry spokesman said the Gaillard-Houghton talk had been very friendly and that the United States was making discreet diplomatic efforts to ease the tension. Pineau, however, said the United States has made no mediation offer. In Washington, Secretary of State Jahn Foster Dulles disclosed he might cut short his seaside vacation and return Monday to take personal command of American efforts to settle the Tunisia-French dispute. Dulles' change in vacation plans reflected mounting American fear that new violence might break out in Tunisia if peace-making steps are delayed. TUNIS, Feb. 14 (.Pi Tunisia clamped a police blockade on three French consulates today but otherwise applied calming measures to prevent a dangerous explosion. A government spokesman disclosed that food supplies were being allowed to get through to the 13,000 French soldiers barricaded in their bases. This seemed to ease the greatest immediate danger of clashes. Capitalizing on world reaction to a French air raid last Saturday on the border village ot Sakiet Sidi Youssef, President Habib Bourguiba has demanded that France withdraw all its troops and give up the big naval base at Bizerte. Tunisians claim 79 men, women and children were killed and many more wounded in Sakiet. Bourguiba reinforced diplomatic pressure by stationing police guards before three French consulates at Gafsa, Medjez and Le Kef, thus putting the consular officials under the same restrictions as the French military. While Bourguiba urged his people today to keep calm. French Premier Felix Gail-lard, still suffering from flu and running Two Rescued, Four Entombed NEW YORK. Feb. U CP Two firemen were pulled out alive and hope quickened for four more trapped late tonight when a five-story building In downtown Manhattan collapsed in a mass of burning wreckage. At first all siv were feared dead, but fellow firemen plunged into the rubble of brick and broken timbers to try to rescue their buddies. Fire Commissioner Edward F. Cavanagh Jr. said the fire apparently started on the fifth floor, possibly from careless smoking. The tragedy was discoverd today by Leo Fitzgerald, 32, a coworker of Dixon on a parcel delivery route, when he called to learn why Dixon had not reported for work. Fitzgerald said Dennis opened the door for him and related that his parents and brother were sleeping. The boy said he had failed In several attempts to rouse them. Sheriff's Deputy Robert Wagner said it was not determined w ere the carbor monoxide gas was generated.

Feb. 14 (XI An eight-year-old boy's healthy survival when carbon monoxide killed two members of nil family and left a third critically ill mystified investigators today.

One Inch Of White Stuff Expected Today Warm Moves Into Florida The Weather Bureau predicted last night that not more than an inch of snow would cover the Cincinnati area today. The snow will precede a new cold wave scheduled to arrive here today or tomorrow. The cold spell, sweeping down from Central Canada, may cause the Ohio River to freeze over enough to hamper navigation by the middle of next week, said Escal Bennett, chief meteoroligist. He added that the river would be back in pool by Monday and would freeze over if temperatures reached zero for three or four nights. The snow, which was to start at 1 a. m. today, signaled the virtual end of a seven-day frigid spell.

By Dick KIrkpatrick Enquirer Correspondent COLUMBUS, Feb. 14 A waterfront memorial development, with Federal aid, similar to that at St. Louis, was proposed here today for Cincinnati's Ohio River waterfront by the Anthony Wane Parkway Board. Appalled at "how little lias been accomplished" by Cincinnati to me-moralize tba great history of tha "Queen City of the West." the state agency noted that the Third Street Distributor was destroying some of the area's historical sites and markers. . Cincinnati was envisioned as the huh of "historical resorces so abundant in this section of Ohio" that tell the history of the winning of the Northwest Territory. Focal point of the riverfront development would be an "Old Northwest Museum," but a baseball stadium and amphitheater are Included. In keeping with Cincinnati's master plan, the Ohio River water-lront can be developed to blend the area's history with ' the new, the board noted. Examples cited were a "canal" In which would be exhibited old river boats, and tours scheduled "aboard one of the River Queens." Thus the "old" would be featured against the background of the noted Suspension Bridge, and the daily view of mighty modern Ohio River D esel towboats now loomin the nver s commerce. park developments. Heliport, etc, also were envisioned. The development also would have as a backdrop the Cincinnati Southern Railroad, a historical achievement for the Queen City. First step should be to change inning laws to prexent costly and Incompatible developments In the memorial area, the report declared.
