(To Be Continued) West Likely to Ask Russia to Reduce Arms By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (IP) — The United States, Britain and France prob ably will propose at next month's Big Four summit talks that Rus sia consider a formula for revers ing the arms race in Europe. The idea is one which Secretary of State Dulles considered with British Foreign Secretary Harok Macmillan and French Foreign Minister Antoine Pinay during the past 10 days at New York anc San Francisco. Dulles returned yesterday from Ihe United Nations 10th anniversary ceremonies at San Francis CO. He said he was gratified . at Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov's response to American demands for compensation in the case of a U.S. Navy patrol plane shot down by Soviet jet fighters Between Alaska and Siberia last iVednesday. Landing on an island, the plane turned. Seven of the 11 crewmen suffered burns or injures. The State Department made jublic yesterday a note Mololov landed Dulles just before both men eft San Francisco Saturday. The Soviets said the airplane had vio ated Russia's "state frontier." The American government said Sovet VIIGs blasted it in a surprise as sault over international waters. The State Department said yes- erday there was "no possibility of error" as to the U.S.' plane's ocation. •••.•" Molotov also said there was in 'exchange" of gunfire, but the United States said (he U.S. plane did not fire. .- Howeyer, Molotov expressed re< gret at the incident and bffer'ed to one half the damage —art un- >recedented offer in such cases. "It is gratifying that he ex jressed regret," Dulles comment-t _>d. "and at least expressed w]l|- igness to make some reparation, ut it is not what we asked for." Apparently he intends to discuss vith President Eisenhower wheth- r and how to press a demand or total compensation. ians around as well as a fine dramatic actor.

Negroes Urge Desegregation in Guard Units WASHINGTON Wl—Negro leaders urged Congress today to over r ride President Eisenhower's objections and force an end to segregation in state National Guard units taking part in the proposed federal reserve program. Clarence Mitchell, director of the Washington Bureau of the National Assn. For the Advancement ! of Colored People, told a House Armed Services subcommittee it would be "national suicide" to segregate white and Negro troops in the present state of world af- f&irs. "We shall never agree with anyone, not even our great President, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Cox and Mrs. J. Blackwood of Fulton spent Saturday in OPrescott. Miss Faye McRae has returned to Little Rock after a visit with Mrs. Mary Montgomery.

He .assailed the President for implying, Mitchell said, "that he is Willing to settle for using all white manpower in National Guard units of great cities like Charleston, S.C.; Birmingham, Ala., and Atlanta, Ga." Mitchell said the NAACP national convention last week voted unanimously to demand passage of an amendment to pending reserve legislation that would require nonsegregation in state National Guard units participating in the proposed compulsory reserve program.

JEastland (D-Miss.), praised the I SB-year-old Burdett for his testi- money and urged CBS to "stand by him" and "publicly commend JlWh" for his decision to tell his [story under oath. Burdett, who testified voluntarily, named a dozen other indivi- I duals as members of the "Brook- llyn Eagle unit" of the Communist j party. He said one was Charles ICrutzncr. now on the news staff | ol the New York Times. He told the committee he was I contacted by the Communist un- I derground in Europe while on |i)£ws assignments 'in Finland, and [Yugoslavia and once in Moscow while en route to Bucharest, Ro- I mania.

But, he added, the war ended before he gave his report to a Russian agent [ he knew as a Miller. next contact with the Com- I munist underground came in June, 3940, he said, when he went to Moscow en route to Bucharest to ] cover the Balkan ''war. Burdett said that two Russians I directed him to contact the Soviet I consulate in Bucharest on his ar- I rival for further instructions from I the Reds. However, he declared, the Rus- I sians made no attempt to contact him there and later in the year went with his Italian bride to Belgrade where -the Communists 1 again sought him out. Burdett said that in early December an agent who always car- j ried a gray glove urged him "to I get to know and cultivate" officials on the "departmental executive level" in the Yugoslav government. The newsman said he met the Just Kidding Ike Says of Political Talk WASHINGTON (UP) —President Eisenhower said today that his remarks in New England about his 1956 political plans were made in a kidding nature. During a six-day tour of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine which ended Monday, the President variously indicated — and usually in apparent jest — that he would and would not run again. He was reminded of those teases at his news conference today. A reporter said that since Mr. Eisenhower apparently had relaxed his own moratorium on discussion of his 1956 plans would he pursue the subject for the benefit of Washington reporters. Mr. Eisenhower said the assumption that he had relaxed his desire to avoid discussion of his political future was incorrect. But he went on to explain his remarks in New England this way: When a man is going off to have a good time and people kid him a little bit, a man must answer in kind. For example, he said at Concord, N. H., last week th&t people who want to know whether he will run again should ask instead how long it would take his assistant, Sherman Adams, to complete- his series of daily lectures on the wonders of New Hampshire. The President said at the time that Adams did not seem to be more than a third of the way through. Today Mr. Eisenhower was asked whether Adams was going to be ablfi to finish his lectures. Mr. Eisenhower laughed and said that Adams, former New Hampshire governor and White House chief of staff, seems te be generating a very great capacity to do it in a hurry.

He told a news conference he based this at least partly on what he had learned of last week's United Nations anniversary meeting in San Francisco. The President said he Is trying not to expect too much from next month's Big Four "summit" meeting at Geneva. But he said it is obvious that some change has taken place in the Soviet attitude and the Big Four meeting may be able to make some progress toward relieving fears. If there is a way to take the burden of fear off people, Mr. Eisenhower said, then we ought to explore it. He then said he personally believes the chances for doing that are better than he thought they tverc too months ago. Th President, like Secretary of State John Foster Dulles yesterday, seemed to discount the effect on the forthcoming Big Four meeting of last week's *U. S.-Russian plane incident off Alaska. Mr. Eisenhower said he is sure that the shooting down of a Navy patrol plane by two Russian MIGs was a local occurrence and not a matter of Soviet policy. He went oil to say that weather conditions Films Tell Story of Wealthy Photographer Wizard's Immoral Acts With Teenbge Girls MINEOLA, N. Y.

She was arrested after she allegedly severely beat her four- year-old daughter. Mrs^ Hendrix, who was quoted by police as saying she administered the beating because the child "sassed" her, .originally was age from 11 to 17, were picked up and held as material witnesses. Fourteen more were being sought. Many others were believed victims of Jerome's vice. Police described Jerome as "part genius. . . part devil" and said the case was among the most shocking they had ever encountered. His depraved sex activities were called to the attention of authorities when a June ,12 fire damaged his penthouse located over the Long Island Farmers' Market which he owned and operated. In the ruins of the $250,000 blaze police found about 10,000 feet of partially damaged film. Another 50,000 feet was believed destroyed. Additional canisters of film were discovered late yesterday in the millionaire's sprawling Southhamp ton L. I. estate. Jerome was described as a whiti Russian who came to this country in 1918, changed his name from but the case was postponed, in the area were not good and|Emereff to Jerome, and used hi that part of the incident was a misunderstanding.'

He said he wants to be in Geneva at a reasonable hour S u>n day morning, July 17.

He replied that the reporter-raised-a question • that a puzzle because no one really tnows where the dominant influence rests among the group of Rus sian leaders. But he said that because of dif- 'erent forms of government everywhere it is .not possible to get ex act counterparts at a meeting of .his type. Thus, the President said, we have o hope that the persons who hold the power to decide will be attend ng the Geneva meeting. Anting to it "would take time" [ to know them. PSC Asked to Reject AP&L Rate Hike Plea LITTLE ROCK I/P) The Arkan| sas Public Service Commission yesterday asked Pulaski Circuit Court to throw out Arkansas Pow- by the governor's emergency^ fund, say Arkansas cotton ginners, rather than by special assessments against ginners. The Arkansas - Missouri Cotton Gin Association Board of Directors yesterday offered the plan in answer to one proposed by the Arkansas State Plant Board, which wants th egins to foot the bill: Load Limit on No. 7 Has Been Withdrawn LITTLE ROOK — (#)' A special truck load limit imposed last week on sections of state Highway 7 in Garland and Perry counties has been withdrawn by the Arkansas Highway Commission. The commission yesterday lifted the 24,000 pound limit, and fixed a new restriction at 56,000 pounds — the limit set by state law for. all roads. Highway Director Herbert Eld- W. Kemper Bruton of Blythevilla ridge announced the action after said the ginners believe it is un- lu unuw UUL ninauatia i uw- ,. . , , Light Co.'s appeal of a PSC £ Ir toH asl ' one , *egmen of the cot- order ^rejecting the firm's-plea for a thre'e million dollar annual rate • increase. • In a brief filed with' the court, i PSC Attorney John R. 1 Thompson ' denied an AP&L charge that the| commission "shut its eyes" to all evidence which would have justi- ,. ficd the rate boost. The brief, nled in answer to , ° ° the fight to exterminate the insect, since cotton is such an important part of the state's overall econ omy. He said the fight should be AP&L's appeal, said the company nts to be "scrutinized in every Ipecl except where it is earning twice on its investment." Thompson argued that ,the big utility wanted the PSC to examine only evidence which favored . th company cause. He said AP&L tried to get a double return on construction projects, and balked when the PSC considered the rev I enue that would be forthcoming 1 from the new facilities. AP&L, said Thompson, is like ! a .ktootlegger who told searchers, I "You can look everywhere you ' want to except under the kitchen floor."

The estimate covers the period from 6 p. m. Friday until midnight Monday and takes into account only immediate deaths and not those occurring later from injuries suffered over the weekend. More than 40 million cars will be on the move over the holiday, a factor that the council said will produce an added, travel hazard. The council gave' these safety suggestions: Drive about 10 m.p.h. slower than normally to give time to react in an emergency. Start your outing in plenty of time so there'll be no need to hurry. Stay alert and avoid distractions from the budiness of driving. Don't compete for the right of way Pass cars singly and be sure your have a clear margin of safety Slow down at sundown and avoid driving when sleepy or overtired. Under the Plant Board's pro- week in an effort to reduce dam posa, eacn gin would pay a $5 fee plus 7 cents for each bale of cotton ginned. The board says this system would raise $70,000.
