Talked With Committee The President-elect took time out from a planned week end ot rest yesterday to confer for two hours at his Columbia University residence with a committee he recently named to study and streaniline organization of the executive branch of Jhe government. The committee is working with Temple University personnel who are making n special survey in that field. Those named by Eisenhower who met with him are Nelson A, Rockefeller of New York, former assistant secretary of state and co-ordi- nator of inter-American affairs: Dr. Arthur S. Flemming, president of Ohio Wesleyan University: and Dr. Milton Eisenhower, president ot Pennsylvania State College and a brother of the general. Also present were Joseph M. Dodge. Detroit banker who is serving as Eisenhower's pre-inauguration representative in the Budget Bureau; Gov. Sherman Adams of Nc\v Hampshu-c. nssistant to the new President; Arthur H. Vandenberg Jr., his executive assistant; and John French, the committee attorney. James C. Hagerty, Eisenhower's press .secretary, said the committee made a. preliminary .report and probably will meet again with the general in advance of his inauguration Jan. 20. Hagerty did not disclose whal recommendations the group made } . Will Interstate Other Studies In naming the committee last month, Eisenhower wrote Dr. Robert L. Johnson, president of Temple University, that it was his understanding the university study would integrate and bring up to date other ^tudies which have been made in the same field, including the report of the Hoover Commission on organization of the exeou- tive branch. Eisenhower's schedule today also includes a visit to the Waldorf Astoria to attend the annual meeting of the Freedom Foundation and conferences at his Commodore Hotel headquarters with officials of the U. H. Council of the International Chamber of Commerce, and representatives of the National Fraternal Council of Churchee, which has members from 11 Negro denominations. The members of Eisenhower's Cabinet and other top officials in he, new administration are being toroughly investigated by the FBI -at their own request. Dulles started It. He announced hortly after he was appointed last month that he had asked the FBI o make an A to 2. Inquiry into his iackground. Since then, an associate of the general said, the eight other Cabl- GVtrface of the- earth." | Ametu*m*n4 Recommended As for atomic energy, the board iroposed that interested agencies draw an amendment to the atomic energy act specifying conditions under which private intereits 'could operate commercially to oenelH from their atomic power research, .development, - and production." The conditions would include such things as patent rights, avail- bility ot fissionable materials, and allocation of costs between industrial power and weapons.' The -commission ' had recom mended that the cooperation In ef feet for several years between thi Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) and private groups developing electric power fron atomic energy be continued to a maximum degree consistent with security. This recommenda t ion, the sources board told ihe President can be interpreted as questioning the apportionment of effort be tween military and civilian use of atomic energy. The board con tinned: "As the present security positlo of the U. S. Is heavily dependen on atomic weapons; the margin o government atomic energy effor available for civilian programs 1 necessarily small. •Whether or not the atomic en ergy commission could arrang more work on the development o electric-generating atomic pifin' without lessening security is a question closed to adequate discussion because of the necessary secrecy surrounding pertinent facts." The board sntd the interest of industry In participating in atomic power development Is retarded by undertainlies as to how it would be, permitted to use its results. These uncertainties, it added, stem, from restrictions In Ihe present law. | ilovs Obs«ry« Annual Army Day BELGRADE, YugO«lavk <^_Yugoslavia obwrv«d its annual Army ay today and premier Marshall Tito proudly a»ert*d that his co.un- ry now has "more friends than en- imies despite the hostility of R«s- ia." He acknowledged that this anti- Soviet Communist state is an "exceptionally difficult position" but- said the whole nation would serve afi an army if the question of the defense of Its soil arose—"and we enow how to defend it."

He expressed confidence in the U.N. Command in Korea. Cited Red Cross Report Oromyko. looking natty in a blue suit, also linked thfi riots with the U.N. adoption of the Indian Korean plan. He said the U, E. wanted to perpetuate the Korean War and the Indian resolution was part of that scheme. Gromyko said the International Red Cross report on last spring's prison outbreak at Koje Island criticized the U. S. for using weapons against rioting prisoners. He sale use of force against the prisoners was part of an American scheme to coerce prisoners into sayinjr tlie> did not want to go home. Those who refused, he added, were brutalized, | Gromyko charged that in May 1951, the U. S. shipped 1,400 Chi nese and North Korean prisoners to the U S. lo serve us "guinea pigs in atom experiments:" tha on Mny ID, 1052, American hang men gouged out the ryes of 1 prisoners, and that on May 30, 1932 the U. S, burned BOO prisoners in flame-thrower experiments. Lloyd burst out laughing al these claims and Jessup and Gross Joined him. Looking at the British, Gromyko said: "They are laughing louder than the American delegation. I wonder why.* * Hoppcnot. answering lor the West, said the guinea pig charge was "odious." ! Lloyd, in his turn on the rostrum, referred to^ a statement by Mrs, Gertrude Eekanlnova. the C?,ech delegate, that the U.N. Command prisoner* kepi in their huU. M BrltMi minister reminded AMNnblr thit he had visited the o«n(M himeetf and had noticed among the "modest effects" such things ai sharp spear:, guns with knives and other weapons. The debate alternated among Soviet satellites and members of the Western or neutral camps until the speakers were talked out, utterly weary. The Assembly first convened Oct. 14, a month later than usual, In order to avoid as much as possible Ihe U. S. elections. But actual ly it never recovered from the impact of those elections and the Republican victory. The U S. rtele- ation picked by President Truman lecame a "lame duck" group un- ible to maintain iUs old time In- lucnce in U.N. halls. As everyone waited for Eisen- io\vnr's inauguration, some of the ough political problems were put off lo a second part of the Assembly. The leftovers included col- eclive measures against aggression, disarmament, Czechoslovak charges that the U, S. inlcrferc-s in ;ho affairs of other countries by Its Mutual Security Act, a U. S. demand for an impartial investigation of Communist charges Ihe Americans wngcd bacterial warfare in Korea and a Polish package proposal for peace and good will through the world—on the Kremlin model. Constant Theme One of the notable features of this Assembly was the violence of Russia's "hate America" campaign. It was a constant theme song for a tired and old Andrei Y. Vishinsky, the Soviet foreign minister. It was reflected In the closing stages by the Soviet blasts at alleged American cruelties in ObHuary Michigan Girl Dies at Dell Services for six-month-old Brenda Kay Ostrom, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ervin Ostrom of Wator- vltet,' Mich., who died at the home of her aunt south of Dell Thursday, were conducted at 2:30 pjn.
