ARROWSMITH WASHNGTON I/P) President Ei- ienhower is taking steps to secure Republican party control in the lands of leaders he considers 'progressive moderates." One step in that direction came ast night at aWhite House stag dinner to which the President invited many 01 the men who helped him win the nominlion in 1952 and played a major role in his success- Ail campaign. Talk at the dinner reportedly did not deal with the big question whether Eisenhower will seek a second term. But the guests ^n- uluded men like Leonard W. Hall, chairman of the Republican National Committee, who have voiced confidence publicly that the President will run again. Others v/ho were present are known to be convinced that Eisenhower who has declined to discuss his 1D56 plans publicly, will bed for another term. Emphasis at the dinner, ( how- ver was understood to have been Imost entirely on Eisenhower's elermination to build and main- ain a Republican party led by 'progressive moderates." French Debate on German Pact Continues PARIS .{m France's great de .-ate on approval or rejection of Sermon rearmament continued in the National Assembly today with a review of reports from the final :ix of the chamber's 11 commit- ,ces. After the last of the committee reports-five 'were submitted last night the floor was to be thrown cr>en to general debate. There was a chance, however, that a test vote mgiht be posed on the' Defense Committee's • recommendation to postpone the debate. Should such a motion be forthcoming, it was expected to go down to defeat in the face of Premier Pierre Mendes-Frence's de Doom Prophet Calls Off Prediction By ALFRED LEECH CHICAGO (UP) Dr. Charles Laughead said today he had received a "message" that Chicago will not be destroyed by tidal waves and earthquakes as he predicted and the end of the world is not at hand. The ousted Michigan State College physician said the "message" came from forces In outer space four hours and forty five minutes after Chi- cigo's supposed day of doom had begun. The reprieve was granted through the intercession of God. who "is in they m!dst," Laughead quoted the "message" as saying. Laughead said he and 13 other believers in the imminent end of the world sat in a suburban Oak Park home all night waiting for "the taiher's message," vaping, our- territory 'outli-.of •:: tlie west" and that the Southern Co., would invade us from the south." The SEC hearing, which had een concentrated on financial al echical issues was enlivened ear- ier with a tale of a myrterious elephone call. • Testimony late yesterday was hat a "very disturbed" but uh- dentified contributor to the University' of Mississippi made the elephone call to university officials. He was said to have objected to, or- at least questioned the >ropriety 'of, a university dean ap- jearing as. a witness for opponents of the project. •David James, attorney for Private sponsors of the project, re- lerred to this as "scandalous material."H e protested an attempt was being made to show that .the witness, Dr. Fredrick H. Kellogg, dean of engineering, ".had been . hev modest h°«ie early Sunda threatened in connection with his testimony." James said the utility officials lie represented had made no such effort and if anyone else did anything "to give any shred of substance to this sort of thing, it was completely unauthorized and we repudiate it." With the hearings scheduled to end today or tomorrow, it appeared questionable whether the source of the reported call ever would'be traced on the record. Joseph Volpe Jr., attorney for apponents of the project who brought up the telephone call, said it was up to the commission to decide first whether it • would press the matter. More than 700,000 U.

News and World Repor said today offshore oil land devel cpment now promises to be huge bonanza for the federaltreas iiry and a muclv smaller one to Texas and Louisiana. A copyrighted article in the mag azine's current issue says that contrary to expectations when th< 'tidelands" controversy raged, tb federal government stands to rea; a profit six times as great as th Gulf Coast states. 'It appears bw as. though th federal treasury will "wind up a least six billion dollars richer because .of tidelands development'' the article says, "The states of Louisiana and Texas will be lucky if they get (a total of) one billion dollars." The reason given: With improved methods of deep-water drilling, oil companias are finding the gulf lands reserved to the federal govo- ernment more attractive than the off shore lands now under the ownership of the states, After the sale of the first .of- shore leases off Louisiana in Octo* ber, Secretary of the Interior McKay said in a. statement that it was estimated the government would get over the years three bil- Jion dollars pr more from the sub merged lands.. both tht, ,— , VTSP in which that ^governjjte threatens' such* annulritef * "They cannot "alipeftV menl used In .the, SovietMrt| The note;.<wW6h'ts6yl<ff .Foreign jMinistefc'Ai ' -^ fc> handed to ,Britisl, / William, Hayter day, ,w,atne^: be denourjce Paris More Cpnyjcfs nrdmii; Gov.
