Henry Ford II suggested this iweek the auto makers should force ! Reuther into industry wide bargain- Ijng so he'd have to deal with them all at the same time. General Motors made no comment but reportedly is opposed to Ford's idea. Reuther, the CIO auto workers' president, said his union was against it. If he auto makers, under Ford's industry wide bargaining plan, balked at some future demand of Reuther and his union struck, all plants would be shut down simultaneously with no company having a competitive advantage over another. As it is now, with company-by- company bargaining, one after the other, Reuther can play off one against the other. He has done it consistently, and again this year in his negotiations with Ford and GM. He put the heat on Ford first. eyes were fever-bright.

So far in his professional career, the candelabra king hasn't been allowed much more affection than kissing his mother on the fore- lead. But now he's making his 'irst starring movie, "Sincerely Yours," and you know how Hollywood can change things. Oh, he's getting the romance, all right. His amours in the film are jrown-haired beauty Joanne Dru and Dorothy Malone, thc shapely jlonde who sizzled the screens in 'Battle Cry." His firsi screen kiss was with Wiss Malone, and it was a lulu. "We had to hold it while the camera panned over to William Demarest and Joanne," he said, 'Then the camera panned back to s, still kissing. Wow:" But his kiss with Joanne was ven more notable. "For three days,her neck had een out of joint and she had been laving massages for it," he re- ated. "When I grabbed her 'and dssed her, I heard a strange noise—you can even hear it on the sound track. It turned out I had put her neck back in joint." How some of Liberace's possessive fans go for all this smooching remains to be seen. But at least they will be satisfied in seeing a lot of him in thc picture.

The issue which lined the Senate almost solidly against McCarthy was a resolution which would have required the administration to get a promise that the Russians would discuss their satellite nations before President Eisenhower could attend the big four meeting in Geneva July 18. By JACK BELL WASHINGTON Ml— The Senate buried under a 77-4 vote yesterday an effort by Sen. McCarthy (R- Wis) to force 'Big Four discussion of Russia's satellite- states. Sen. Berkley (D-Ky) said today. "That settles it— the President does not need our advice" in forthcoming negotiations with the Prime Ministers of England, France and'Russia at Geneva'in July. McCarthy, his political support in the Senate obviously at a low ebb, told newsmen rejection of his resolution was "a great mistake." He promised to go right on talking about "getting sorn.e concessions" from the Russians at the summit conference. But he indicated no move for any further Senate test. .His resolution had the combined opposition of the Eisenhower .administration and of Senate leaders of both parties. Sen.

Knowland of California, the Senate GOP leader, he was "surprised, shocked and disappointed" at Knowland's opposition to the resolution. When McCarthy went on to assert that the Democratic record was one of "whining and Whimpering" over the Communist question, Knowland fired back heatedly that he was not "whining and whimpering." McCarthy replied he didn't say that. But he told Knowland he was "extremely disappointed that you, who have been a leader until recently" in what he termed the fight against communism, should oppose the resolution. When Sen.

"We must, in my opinion, give a .free Germany the choice of being associated to a system of security, including reciprocal limitation and central of armaments." Pinay called the German problem one of the main problems that divide the East and West. He made no specific mention of yesterday's speech by Foreign Minister V. M.
