C Ntw fork Timet Nrwi Brrrlra AUGUSTA, Ga April 26 President Eisenhower served notice on opponents of his defense modernization plan today that "there can be no compromise on or retreat from the essentials of this legislation." Disturbed by published reports that his Defense Secretary, Neil H. McElroy, had prepared a well-ordered retreat from the President'i position, Mr. Eisenhower first telephoned the Cabinet official and then dictated his statement to White House press secretary James C. Haeerty. who was at nis elbow. With the exolanation that think it is fair to say that the President wrote most of himself," Hagerty gave news men this statement: "This morning the President talked bv telephone witn tne Secretary of Defense. The sub ject was tne defense reorgant ration bill and some news stor les implying that the Secretary of Defense was willing to compromise the objectives sought in the defense reorganization bill which the President person ally sent to the Congress.

'While the Secretary of De fnnsp orooerlv has not insisted on rigid adherence to words and phraseology, he has con firmed to the president uiai nu changes in the meaning of any feature of the modernization program has been implied by any testimony of his. "Both the President and the Secretary are agreed tnat mere can be no compromises on or retreat from the essentials of this legislation. A Washington dispatch to the New York Times reporting on Secretary McElroy's testimony yesterday said the defense chief had announced that "He was agreeable to sweeping rewriting operation so long as it preserved tne- sud stance of what he has been tell ine the committee all week that he wants." Apparently what first prompted the President's telephone rail to McElroy was a head line over an Associated Press story in the local Augusta chronical that read: "Military merger is shunted aside by defense chief." The paper is the first available to the president nere. Disturbing' Reports. Hagerty said in answer to questions that the President had telephoned McElroy from his. cottage at the Augusta tional Golf Club on reading the "disturbing" reports published in most morning newspapers. "The President was dis turbed about reports that we received this morning implying a position by the Secretary that the President was quite sure was not correct and called to confirm his beliefs and found that the implications were not correct," Hagerty explained to reporters. During the half hour's tele phone conversation that ensued, according to the press secre tary, the President was ae quainted with the statement that the Defense Secretary proposed to issue a short time later. This, too, was read by Hagerty at his noon meeting with reporters here. The statement by Defense Secretary McElroy read: "I have been asked whether my testimony before the House Continued on Page 24, Col. 1. UNITED NATION, N.Y., April 26 (UP) The United States called today for immediate discussion in the United Nations of an aerial Inspection program to safeguard against surprise attacks across the North Pole. Russia promised careful consideration of the proposal despite the fact that in the past it has rejected the Elsenhower "open skies" aerial Inspection program for disarmament and has rebuffed previous American proposals for opening specified areas of the world to mutual inspection. The 11-nation Security Council agreed to meet next Tuesday on the resolution which United States Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge delivered to the Soviet delegation. Lodge then discussed it at a press conference. It was the first time Lodge has personally approached the Soviet delegation with a resolution. The resolution calls upon Russia, Britain, France, Canada, the United States, Denmark, Norway "and any other states having territory north of the Arctic Circle which desire to have such territory included in the rone of international inspection" to start immediate discussions. "The United States is calling the Security Council to gether to try to lessen the dangers to world peace which flow from the existing capabil ity in the world of massive sur prise attack, whether by planes or oy missiles, Lodge said. The resolution does not specify any methods to be used against surprise attacks, but asks the countries concerned to designate representatives to discuss technical arrangements. Lodge said the possibility of massive surprise attack, wheth cr by the United States or the Soviet Union, accounts for ANOTHER DEFEAT HMDS 0 E LABOR MEASURE Senate Refuses, 53-28, to Broaden Pension Welfare Bill to Bar Discrimination Within Unions.

Nixon will try to counter a resurgence of anti-United States feeling and a growing Soviet trade and diplomatic offensive during his 18-day visit to South America which begins tomorrow. Nixon particularly will search for ways to help a number of this nation's "good neighbors to the south" out of severe economic crises. Brazil, Colombia and Chile already have warned that unless the United States assures them more stable markets for their mineral and agricultural exports their entire political and social structures may be threatened. Nixon will visit eight countries. In Argentina he will represent President Eisenhower at the inauguration of a new President. He will also visit Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela. Accompanying him will be President Samuel C. Waugh of the Export-Import Bank, Assistant Secretary of State Roy R. Rubottom, and Maurice Eern- baum, chief of the State De partments division of South American affairs.

Schwinke, 3952 Weber road, Lemay, was head ing toward Tuscaloosa, Ala., last night where his wife, daughter, son-in-law, four grandchildren, luggage and money were waiting after an all-day separation. Schwinke parted company with his family and his belong ings yesterday near Thomas-ville, Ga., where the group, returning from a Florida vaca tion in two automobiles, stopped to eat. Since he was not hun gry, Schwinke gave his wallet to his wife and took one of the cars down the highway to wait. He fell asleep and that was the beginning of a separation that lasted more than 12 hours and covered some 300 miles. After eating, the family continued the trip in the second car, leaving Schwinke snoozing by the roadside with only $5 in his pocket. After much long-distance telephoning and relaying of in formation through a daughter, Mrs. Timothy Ryan, who lives at the Weber road address, it was established that Schwinke was in Montgomery, Ala., and the rest of the group in Tuscaloosa. At last report, Schwinke was headed toward Tuscaloosa to rejoin his family, his money and his luggage. NOW IT'S OFFICIAL: KOREAN BATTLE ACTION WAS A WAR The New Tork Herald TrihunM'oit-ttUpatch rnp" in iiKnutfn. WASHINGTON. April 26 Henceforth the conflict in Korea will be termed officially a war, according to a new De partment of Defense order. Previously, regulations had required military personnel to refer to the war as a "conflict" or "United Nations po nce action. The Missouri Department of Revenue will be given rent free office space at 925 Wash ington avenue about July 1, to bring more persons into the downtown area, it was an nounced yesterday. Free space under a $l-a-year lease on the downtown site is being provided by the Down town Improvement Association, Milton Carpenter, state director of revenue, said. The de partment's St. Louis office presently is at 2730 North Grand boulevard, where rent is $13,800 a year. The owner of the downtown building, said by Carpenter to be the Linda Investments Co., will be paid a $12,000 annual rental by the improvement association for the space to be occupied by the state office. The revenue office will occupy part of the first floor and basement, and the second floor of the eight-story structure. Downtown merchants will enjoy a two-fold advantage in having the license office nearby, Carpenter said. Approximately 450,000 transactions a year are hrndled by it, he said. A survey estimates that, as a result, abut 350,-000 persons would come into the downtown district annually on business at the license office. A second advantage to the Merchants, he said, is that the office's own staff of 140 to 150 persons will be working downtown. The building is on the northeast corner of Tenth street and Washington. The state office will have a 30-foot front on Washington. An innovation at the new location will be three sidewalk cashier's windows on the Tenth street side, where motorists may obtain automobile licenses without entering the building, Carpenter said. Carpenter said the Linda firm is to install a new facade on the ground-level exterior, and air-condition and redecorate the office space. Tile floors, new lavatory facilities and a new elevator to the second floor are to be installed by the owner. Carpenter said he will shortly sign a one-year lease, the maximum length of time to which the state can bind it self, with options to renew at the $l-a-year rate. The state will have 15.0U0 square feet at the new location, as compared with 16,000 at the present site. The transactions resulted from discussions between Carpenter and Arthur A. Blu-meyer, banker and vice president of the improvement association, the revenue director said. Failure to Grow Peck of Corn Each Year Costs Logger a Farm NARRAGANSETT. R.I., April 26 (UP) Failure to grow a peck of Johnnycorn each year has cost an Oregon logger own ership of the old homestead farm here. Instead, the 24-acre farm and two and one-half story house became the property of the University of Rhode Island. That was the interpretation given yesterday by the Rhode Island Supreme Court to the will of Harry Knowles of Brooklyn and Narragansett. Knowles died in 1955 at the age of 75. Knowles stipulated in the will that his nephew, Earl J. Knowles of Mist, Ore., be required among other things to: . reside on homestead farm for not less than three months of each year and grow or have grown at least a peck of Indian maize or Rhode Island johnnycake corn each year." Knowles, 44, has come east to the farm a couple of times since his uncle died. But he never came for more than two months at a time. And he has not grown one kernel of Indian maize. Neither, he admitted, did he pay taxes and insurance or keep the homestead in repair, which were other provisions in the will. Under the terms of the will, failure to comply would result in the property reverting to the estate and being bequeathed to the university WASHINGTON, April 26 (AP) The Senate refused today to broaden an employe welfare-pension fund bill to prohibit labor unions from denying membership because of race, creed or color. The vote was 53 to 28. Rejection of the anti-discrimination amendment marked another setback for Senator William F. Knowland (Rep.), California, in his fight for what he calls "union democracy" measures. Democratic leaders, with the support of some Republican Senators, argued that efforts to write broad labor legislation should await hearings scheduled to start before the Senate Labor Committee May 5. The move led by Knowland, the Senate Republican leader, to turn the welfare and pension fund bill into a broad "labor bill of rights" measure was described by Senator Lyndon B. Johnson (Dem.), Texas, as "pure political hogwash." Johnson, the Democratic majority leader, appealed to Republicans to pass the welfare-pension bill first and then work on a general labor program later. "Let's not shoot from the hip just to get headlines today," he said. Time for Action. Knowland and other Republicans argued that now was the time to get action if there were to be any real hopes of passing broad-scale labor legislation at this session of Congress. The defeat of Knowland's anti-discrimination amendment followed the pattern set last night when the Senate rejected four other amendments he proposed to strengthen rank and file control over union affairs. He has other amendments to call up Monday and so have some other Republican Sena tors. Also awaiting action are 11 amendments offered by Sen ator H. Alexander Smith (Rep.), New Jersey, to carry out Presi dent Eisenhower's labor legislation recommendations. The next order of business is one of Smith's amendments. This would repeal a section of the Taft-Hartley Law which bars a striker who has been replaced in a plant .from participating in a union representation election. In putting off further action until Monday, the Senate agreed to limit debate on all amendments to one hour each and on final passage of the bill itself to three hours. The agreement barred the in-troduction of any new amendments. Johnson predicted this would mean a final vote on the pension-welfare bill late Monday or sometime Tuesday. Rejected Amendment. The Knowland amendment rejected today, in the only vote taken at a Saturday session, provided that no labor union could represent employes in collective bargaining unless its membership were open to all workers without discrimination. It contained a provision. however, that it should not be construed to prevent a union from denying membership to a Communist. Senator Karl Mundt (Rep.), South Dakota, served notice he would call up next week a series of amendments aimed directly at some provisions of the pending welfare-pension fund bill. Mundt told the Senate his amendments would regulate union fund investments, would make it "more difficult for criminals and crooks to get their hands on these funds," and would require the Secretary of Labor to examine, in addition to merely receiving, Continued on Pate 27, Col. 2 UNION BOSS HAVEY' S WIFE AN OFFICER OF BRICK FIRM WITH GROWING BUSINESS RIVALS REPORT SAID TO HAVE tck MIDWEST.

SCIENTISTS SCOUT IDEA OF MARKING MOON WITH DYE WASHINGTON, April 26 (AP) Two United States scientists have indicated they do not think much of a proposal to try to score a propaganda point by hitting the moon with a dye-tipped rocket. Drs. Lee A. DuBrldge and W. H. Pickering of the California Institute of Technology told the House Space Committee yesterday it would take a 200-inch telescope to see a one-mile square dye plot on the moon. DuBrldge, president of Cal-tech, said enough dye to color 10 square miles of the moon's surface mighty weigh a few tons. With dust believed by some to be abundant on the moon, Pickering said, a dye shot might disappear into the dust. "And if the thing hit the back side (of the moon), then we would never know about it," DuBrldge said. Reports that a Frank (Buster) Wortman lieutenant solicited business for a company in which Stephen Gorman was financially interested are being investigated by Treasury agents, the Post-Dispatch learned yesterday. Gorman, a leading St. Louis area masonry contractor, has refused to disclose to federal agents or a grand jury who his associates were in the Gormco Construction Co., a recently-dissolved firm. He was asked specifically whether thev included Wortman or Elmer (Dutch) Dowling, East Side gang leaders. The Gormco company was incorporated at Springfield, 111., July 6, 1956, about the time the current Wortman investigation got under way. Gorman opened offices in a three-room suite in the First Federal Building, 435 Missouri avenue, East St. Louis He took a one-year lease. Agent as Listed. ine registered agent was listed as Fred Mersinger, East M. Louis accountant and at that time a partner of Edward A. Epping. Epping, executive assistant to Illinois State Auditor Orville E. Hodge, was caught up in the $1,500,000 Hodge scandal the same month the Gormco firm was Incorporated He now is serving a prison term for his part in the thefts. About the time Gorman was leasing office space, the Post-Dispatch was told, Sam Magin quit his job as manager of Wortman's Paddock Bar, 429 St. Louis avenue, East St. Louis. He adjusted his tie, straightened his homburg and allegedly went out to get contracts for Gormco. Magin is one of Wortman's most trusted aids. He is now under indictment for allegedly lying for his boss in the federal investigation. As things turned out, the new company languished. The firm became inactive and was formally dissolved last month. Widening of Inquiry. The Gormco Co., and other firms in which Gorman was interested, were drawn into the Wortman inquiry because the East Side rackets boss has left no trail of his own making. Agents found the boss himself was apparently allergic to canceled chocks, receipts, and bank accounts. So, anyone ever seen talking to Wortman was Investigated. Agents took an interest in Gorman when they heard reports one of his companies, the Gorman Bricklaying Co., had do nated the brickwork on luxury homes built near Collinsville for Wortman and Dowling. An examination of Gorman's books indicated the gangsters had not paid for the work. If this was the case, the agents concluded, the cost of the brickwork $17,819 could rightly be classified as a gift on which Wortman and Dowling should have paid income tax. With painstaking care the Treasury agents kept after Gorman's books. Evidence was uncovered indicating that Gor man's bricklayers may have assisted in construction of the moated building constructed by Wortman on the East Side, officials said. Gorman and Truck Firm. The agents found where the Gorman trail crossed that of Chicagc-St. Louis Express, Inc., a trucking firm involved in another phase of the Wortman Inquiry. The Gorman Bricklaying Co. owns both the Chicago and St. Louis terminals of the truck line. Two other East Side Gorman companies were scrutinized, the Cascade Hills Development Co. and the G. & B. Realty Co. Gorman refused to answer when asked if he accompanied Dowling one day near head quarters of the Cascade Hills Co. at Columbia, 111. Gorman, whose payroll is studded with the names of St. Louis area hoodlums, hag enjoyed meteoric success since he started business as a bricklaying contractor 12 years ago. Within a year or two of incorporation, his original firm, the Stephen Gorman Bricklaying Co., had become one of the largest in the field of masonry subcontractors.
