State Senate Expense Funds Low As Overtime Session Starts PHOENIX --W-- Arizona's state senators are worried that the $100,000 left in their account won't carry them through the current regular session and the fiscal year. House members apparently think there's no crisis. The Senate passed Feb. 2 a bill to provide itself with $200,000 in additional o p e r a t i n g funds. THIS M E A S U R E was assigned to three House committees--and hasn't e v e n been brought up for discussion. "I've got a problem," admitted House Speaker Jack Gilbert, D-Cochise. The problem is a number of House members who feel the Senate doesnt need the money and that, if it gets the appropriation, it will have, the means to extend the current regular session indefinitely. "Rep. Robert Brewer, R-Maricopa, is one of those who want to kill the Senate bill. And there are others. Last year in a similar situation the Senate asked for $100,000--and got it only after some sweating. GILBERT AND House Appropriations .Committee Chairman G. 0. Biles, D-Greenlee, both contend the lower chamber should not be blocking any fund request for Senate operations. "I think it will move," Biles said. "It's not being held in my committee." The auditor's records showed yesterday the Senate has a balance of $100,173 and the House has $158,593. Both houses cut about 20 persons off their payrolls as of yesterday. Pay for legislators came to an end this week. It's estimated that t h r e e weeks of overtime wouloVjCost the Seriate about half of what it now has in .its account. Some senators have conceded they possibly could make it through the fiscal year, but they would rather be safe than come up short.

Earl Bush, 29, was held in WILMINGTON, Del.--(S^-The FBI has broken what it says was a plot with international overtones, to sell industrial secrets worth millions to the DuPont Co. An FBI spokesman said the case was broken when E. I. DuPont de Nemours Co. reported it had been offered secret formulas of competitors. An unemployed truck driver and a chemical engineer were arrested by .the FBI. The FBI said yesterday that $42,500 was sought from the Wilmington chemical firm for data jointly owned by the B.F. Goodrich Corp., Akron, Ohio, and the Montecatini Co'rp., Milan, Italy. The formulas were said to involve a new process for synthetic rubber, but no details were disclosed. Montecatini, a big chemical manufacturer, is regarded as a competitor of DuPont in the world market. DuPont and Goodrich declined to comment after agents arrested the two men -- one in a motel near Wilmington, the other in Cleveland. Both men live in the Cleveland area. Wilbur J. C. Pierce, 27, was CANADA SEX-SECURITY PROBE Pearson Sets High Stakes OTTAWA --UPI-- Canada's ruling Liberal Party drafted plans today for a winner-take- all investigation of a sex-and- security scandal involving a former cabinet minister and a blonde German beauty. If the investigation fails to prove a breach of security in the relationship of former Associate Defense Minister Pierre Sevigny, a Conservative, and Gerda Munsinger, an alleged beauty queen-turned spy, the minority government of Prime Minister L e s t e r B. Pearson could fall. Pearson's justice minister Lucien Cardin, charged Thursday that former Conservative ministers, were involved with the German beauty wiicii jGnii Diefenbaker was prime minister prior to 1963. Cardin refused to name the ministers, and he said Mrs. Munsinger had left Canada and died of leukemia in Germany. But, the Toronto Star reported from Munich yesterday t h a t Mrs. Munsinger, now 36, was very much alive and working as a waitress. In a copyrighted story, the newspaper quoted the --AP Wirephotos Gerda Munsinger Pierre Sevigny Principal figures in Canada ; s sex-security scandal tall thin beauty as saying she had been Sevigny's "frequent companion" from 1958 until 1960. She returned to Germany in 1961. Real Caouette, the leader of the Social Credit Party, read the newspaper story into the record of Parliament. In Toron- to, Sevigny, a French-Canadian aristocrat who lost a leg during World War II, described the charges as "complete rubbish ... sheer complete backmail." "I am absolutely convinced that this girl had nothing to do with the East (European Communist Nations)." (In New York, Policeman Michael F. Munsinger told a reporter that Mrs. Munsinger was his former wife. He said he knew her as "Olga," and had met and married her while serving with the U.S. Army in Germany. Munsinger said he tried to bring her to the United States but the State Department banned her as a "security risk.") Pearson, facing the rowdiest session of commons in 10 years, shouted that he was willing to stake the fate of his government, and that of his justice minister, on a sweeping investigation of the entire affair. "And if you don't like it," the prime minister shouted above the angry Conservatives, "you c-an throw us out." The Conservatives were waiting for their leader, Diefenbaker, to return from a fishing trip tomorrow night to join in the debate, which has been labeled the "little Profumo scan- daP after the 1953 episode involving Britain's former Conservative Defense Minister 1 John Profumo and play-for-pay girl Christine Keeler.

W.Germany Won't Back DeGattllfe BONN - UPI - Chancellor Ludwig Erhafd of West Germany has made it clear that if France forces him to choose between Paris and Washington, he will side with the Americans. The shape of Erhard's choice became clear this week in government statement reacting to French President C h a r 1 es de Gaulle's accelerated attack on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The German chancellor, in a yet unpublished reply to de Gaulle's personal not outlining his intentions, is understood to have rebuffed any suggestion of bilateral negotiations on future military arrangements. These are matters which concern all 15 members of NATO, Erhard said. Futhermore, the chancellor declared, the western deterrent is credible and can prevent Soviet aggression only if NATO's military forces are integrated in peacetime.

Suhsrto, Indonesik** new strongman, dissolved and outlawed the Indonesian; Communist Party today in the name of President. Sukarno, Jakarta radio announced. ~ - Â£ At the same time, informants in Singapore reported that Sukarno and First Deputy Premier Subandrio, his pro-Peking chief lieutenant, were not being allowed to leave the presidential palace in Jakarta. These sources added that the s h a p e of developments in Jakarta indicated Suharto, the Indonesian Army chief, was firmly hi control and tht Sukar- no, now apparently only- a figurehead, had little chance of staging a comeback. JAKARTA RADIO broadcast excerpts of a meeting of high government officials at Su- karno's palace, where Sukarno said he had ordered Suharto to take control of the country and maintain peace and order. Then Suharto spoke and said he had no intention of moving Indonesia's poUticaK^oatlo either to the right or' extreme left. "It is already left" he said. That broadcast said Su- bandrio -- chief target of anti- Communist students -- was present at the meeting and he was referred to as deputy premier. But informants in Singapore, receiving independent reports from Indonesia, said Subandrio was out and was being held a virtual prisoner in the presidential palace. "And Sukarno himself is not allowed to leave the palace at present," one informant said. THE SOURCES expressed belief Subandrio and other pro- Communist members of Su- karno's cabinet will go on trial before a military tribunal now conducting hearings on cases involving Indonesians accused of being involved in a Communist- led coup attempt in October. Two Communist leaders already have been sentenced to death and, according to some reports, executed.
