Rep. Oren Harris (D-Ark), chairman of the subcommittee in vestigating the gilt-giving Goldfine's relations with federal officials, gave this reply to a request from Goldfine's attorneys for postponement. Attorney Roger Robb said his Boston millionaire client came to Washington Sunday to prepare to answer committee interrogators again but had gone Into "a state ol physical and mental exhmis tion" after a chain of spectacular events Monday. Robb told the subcommittee at 10 a.m.—when Goldfine himself was supposed to have returned to the witness stand—that the discovery of a hidden microphone near a hotel suite occupied 1 oy Goldfine aides and theft of some of Goldfine's papers Monday had left Goldfine with little sleep and given him no time to bone up on committee questioning. Expected Wednrmiay "He has every expectation that lie will be able to appear before (lie committee tomorrow and answer these questions," Robb said. The subcommittee ousted a sliiff investigator caught snooping on Goldfine aides with a hidden microphone. Goldfine, 67, held the witness stand for two. days last week in Harris' subcommittee inquiry into alleged federal favoritism to Goldfine because of Goldfine's friendship . with President Eisenhower's top aide Sherman Adams. The Boston textile and rea 1 ] estate millionaire returned Sunday , night promising to tell the congressmen, at last, about $777.000 worth of uncashed checks. Then the fireworks began. Nabbed Eaveidropper | Goldfine aides caught the sub- committee's top investigator Ba ron I. Shacklette eavesdropping from an adjacent hotel room early Monday morning. Shack' lette- was found with « microphone and recording machine. The congressmen grilled their own Investigator most of the afternoon behind closed doors, then unanimously accepted his resigna* tion from 'the $16,300-a-year post. The subcommittee strongly condemns this eavesdropping which occurred without its knowledge^Harris declared. But the legislators, hinted some one had trapped Shacklelte into being indiscreet. They demanded an inquiry by the Justice Department, the FBI and the Washington, D.C., police. Their statement issued through Flarris after a five-hour session also applied to the second big surprise from the Goldfine camp: Record* Stolen Goldfine's bookkeeper, the blonde Miss , Mildred PapermaiT. reported some of her boss' bank records, correspondence and other documents were stolen from ler hole) room.

S., Canada Set Talks In Ottawa WASHINGTON (APl-Presidf-nt Eisenhower set out today on a neighborly visit to Canada. His plane took off tor Ottawa at 9| a.m. i The President's three-day etay north of the border is aimed at smoothing out irritations which haye been disturbing the traditional friendship between the two great North American nations. 'Eisenhower was accompanied by Mrs. Eisenhower and Secretary! of Stlae and Mrs. Dulles. ! The party was due in the Cana-j dian capital in about two hours, i In conferences with Canadian I Prime Minister John Diefenbaker. who invited him to make the trip, Eisenhower will explore economic and international issues. The aim is closer understanding and some assurance that no insurmountable troubles divide the two nations. There has been a growing re- entment in Canada against the United States and its policies — a feeling that the neighbor to the south ignores Canadian probleriis ;or treats them in a casual, offhand manner. There have been some rumblings in the United States that Canada is shirking on providing manpower for Western defense. Many Canadians, for their part, complain that the United States is too much inclined to say "no" to the Soviet Union and to decline to negotiate with the Soviets. Mainly, Canada is concerned about economic issues. It worries a bit about its trade deficit with the United States, heavy Ameri- Money To Be Raised By Area Contributions Robert H.

The proposed new main will replace an existing 18-inoh main that ties ipto several 12- and lunch mains in'the city, and with a 20-inch main that extends to the Ridge, Plum and Fourth street area; Current status of the Alton segment of the river road hinges on the right-of-way negotiations now hitting for Narleski, singled to underway between the State of 11- inois and Mississippi Una Co.

Special engineer for the Me Adams Highway, Howard Sheppard, told the Telegraph today that he has been informed that the State and Illinois Terminal Railroad Co. have agreed on moving the Terminal tracks, a project that would occur concurrently with the grading for the segment of the road within Alton llnni.ts. Thus, U appears the settlement of right-of-way problems will launch quickly the construction program. Alton limits are 700 feet west (upstream 1 from the Water Co. pumping plant. The distance from the end of West Broadway paving to the pumping plant is 4,900 feet. The Terminal tracks which extend along this segment and further west will cross the river road diagonally at a point 1,700 feet west of the pumping plant, or 1,000 feet west of the city limits.
