It said that Capt. James E. Bowman of Amboy, Ind., flying a Cessna YH41 "Seneca" helicopter at Wichita, Kan., recaptured the altitude record from France Saturday by reaching 30,335 feet. This altitude, the Army said, also set a new record for "no weight restriction" class helicopters and also for helicopters of between 1,102 and 2,204 pounds. Bowman also reached a new height of 28,200 feet for a third class of helicopters weighing between 2,204 and 3,858 pounds. Bowman's new altitude, the Army announcement said, exceeded a 26,931 foot flight toy Jean Boulet of France, who flew an "Alouette" helicopter on June 6, 1955. Bowman's .flight was supervised by a representative of the National iAeronautics Assn. tout must be confirmed and accepted, by the worldwide governing body, Federation Aeronatlque Internation- ale. The altitude of helicopters is limited by the diminishing density of air as they ascend which reduces the bite the rotary blades can take. The Seneca helicopter used by the Army is a military version of the Cessna CH-1B four-place commercial version.

Hagerty said tie does not expect any increase In federal taxes but he added he does not look for any reduction either. Brundage drove here from Washington with Killian. That, and the fact that the White House science adviser sat in on the meeting underscored the important 'bearing that space age weapons will have on spending.

Entire Chinese Clan Migrates SAN FRANCISCO UP) — Almost the entire population, of a Chinese village near Hong Kong has en tered San Francisco Illegally in recent years, federal agents disclosed Monday. Asst. U.S. Atty. James B. Schnake said some 250 members of the Huey (or Huie) family, which inns most of San Francisco's hand laundries, are masquerading as children of previously naturalized or American-born citizens. The family comes from the little village of. Sal Kee In Canton Province. Schnake went to Hong Kong to investigate the matter. "There are only about 100 persons still living in Sai Kee," he said, "mostly wives of men here and old men who have gone home to die." Schnake said evidence began to mount against the Huey clan of Sai Kee last June when an 80- year-old family member threatened with deportation revealed the true identity of 37 of the migrated family. The government has been lenient about deporting Chinese nationals to their homeland where they might face Communist prosecution.

Routine Check Leads To Arrest Of Wanted Man WEST PALM BEACH, Pla. Uft — Russell Wayne Carpenter, 21, wanted in a double slaying in a Washington, D.C., bar, was arrested last night by a patrolman making a routine check of transients. The 'FBI said he would be jailed in Miami. Arraignment was slated on a charge of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution for murder, said Special Agent John H. Williams. Patrolman Larry Wald questioned the hitchhiking Carpenter, who showed him a wallet containing pictures that nmtched FBI circulars and .a driver's license bearing the name of the wanted man. Wald arrested him. Police Sgt. E. E. Graham said Carpenter related that he separated in Miami Beach from Henry Clay Overton, 44, after arriving there Sunday. Carpenter said a Miami police car fell Jn behind them and they became frightened. They left the car and split up. Later Overton went back for the car and headed north. He was killed in .a head-on auto collision Sunday night at Wrens, Ga., that fatally injured Charles N. Wray, 42, a construction worker from High Point, N.C. Graham said Carpenter told of throwing away ia ,45-caliber pistol at Miami Beach. He was unarmed when arrested. Overton and Wray, who was driving to his job at the missile center at Cape Canaveral, FLa., were killed in a collision during Overton's 100-mile-an-hour flight in a stolen car from the Georgia state patrol. Found in the wreckage was a loaded, sawed-off shotgun. Patrol Sgt. J. L. Knight said he believed "Overton was getting ready to blast us with that shotgun" and lost control trying to drive and shoot at the same time. The shooting at the Washington bar stemmed from a quarrel over a $10 drink tab. Police taid .two men left the bar, but returned and started shooting with a .45-caliber pistol and a sawed-off shotgun. U.S. WANTS DISARM PACT BEFORE MEET By JOHN SCALI WASHINGTON 'M— The U n 1 led States was reported preparing today to insist that Russia prove Its good faith by new disarmament concessions before this country will consider a second East-West summit conference. , This basic strategy unfolded as top officials drafted President El- senhower's reply to Russian Premier Bulganin's newest bid for a meeting of Communist and free world leaders. Eisenhower and Secretary of State Dulles were understood to be Increasingly reconciled to the inevitability of a new round of talks with the Soviets, but far from enthusiastic about the prospects. Their .attitude, in the face of Allied pressure for new discussions, appeared to be developing into this pattern: 1. New talks should be confined strictly to the disarmament deadlock and should not Include d 1 3- cussion of political problems. 2. These discussions should be held either on a foreign ministers' level or lower, such as within the United Nations Disarmament Commission, to test Russia's professed willingness to ease ten- ions. 3. The door to a multination summit conference, bringing together Eisenhower and Bulganin, will remain open as a follow-up to any promising disarmament negotiations. If Russia rejects new disarmament talks or refuses to offer concessions, Eisenhower and D u 1 les will vigorouly oppose any new summit conference. Their view, officials said, is that it would harm the West by sending hopes skyrocketing, only to see them tumble in disillusionment. Harold Stassen, Eisenhower's disarmament chief, meanwhile was reported urging the administration to "liberalize" its own disarmament attitude in advance ;of new talks withe the Soviets. Stassen was understood to have strongly advanced his recommendations for changes despite bitter opposition from Dulles, Atomic Energy Commissioner Lewis L. Strauss and the Defense Department. w ~" | • i DECISIVE MEETING The conflicting Dulles - Stasseir' views will be laid before President Eisenhower at a decisive meeting of the National Security Council set for next Monday in the White House.

Red Skelton Suffers Near Fatal Heart Failure in Asthma Attack By JAMES BACON SANTA MONICA, Calif, (ffl — Comic Red Skelton, upset over his .Ajn's illness and an upcoming TV appearance with Bing Crosby, almost suffocated last night from a severe asthmatic attack. The attack brought on heart failure which left Skelton literally gasping for life. His wife Georgia summoned a fire department rescue squad and his personal physician in time to revive him. He was later taken by ambulance from his Bel Air home to St. John's Hospital in Santa Mon- loa. His doctor said he was sleeping and "progressing satisfactorily." He said his condition was still serious but not critical a.s it was when he arrived at the hospital. The physician said the asthmatic phase of the attack was complicated by accumulation of fluid in ;he lungs and the combination, depriving the heart of oxygen, brought on the heart failure. He added, however, that "it was not a heart attack and no indication that the heart was bad to start with." "If there are 10 steps to death, you can say that Red took nine of them," the doctor said. Mrs. Skelton said her husband has suffered from a chronic asthma condi'.ion for 30 years. "But he never bad an attack. like this one," she said. "When it came on he took his asthma pills the same as always, but this time they had no effect. "The attack kept getting worse and worse so that he began to gasp for air. His face turned red and I thought he was going to go. His pulse got very low." She said that Red was working at the time on material for a film to be shot today with Crosby. His own television show, on the air tonight, already has been filmed and he was to do a skit with Cros» by on the Bel Air golf course for showing Jan. 12. The skit was to be part of a TV spectacular on Crosby's annual Pebble Beach Golf Tournament. Skelton, 44, usually rated one, of show business' greatest clowns, feels humble about working with performers like Crosby, his wile said. '•Red told me Just the other day that he didn't think he was good, enough to work with someone like Bing," Mrs. Skelton said. "» fact, he hasn't slep: for three nights worrying about it. "I know he's great, so does everybody else, but he doesn't think so." She added: "Then we got news about Richard today that wasn't good." S.lie did not elaborate but said doctors had put their 11-year-old sou, suffering from leukemia, under a new medication.
