Kefauver questioned T a 11> o t I sharply on Monday about a MIS report by Hughes which said the Dayton Wright Airplane Company headed by Tnlbolt, used Improper methods in obtaining some 30 million dollars worth of World War I aircraft contracts. Talbott said he regarded telegrams between the firm and one of its former officials who later became an Army colonel and directed aircraft procurement as "unfortunate In their Implication, bul perfeclly proper." Bul he quickly added lhat as secretary of the Air Force"I wouldn't let anything like that happen again." There was no criticism In Ih old reports of Talbott personally.

Wantl ChlMU Pilot. But he said he doesn't want any Americans Involved In any such venture, adding that the planes should be transferred to Chiang Kai-shek's forces and piloted by his men. Representatives Short (R-Mo) and Richards (D-3C) said the House was In no mood lo b* Influenced by the British position. "The British are only trying to save Hong Kong and their commercial interests In China," said Richards, former chairman of the foreign affairs commltlca. "The sooner they realize this Is a delusion, the better." Many congressmen, Richards added, "feel we have leaned over backwards long enough to meet Great Britain more than halfway." Short, chairman of the armed services committee, said he believed the temper of Ihe House was "(o Ignore what the British say." He added that "No. 10 Downing Street (residence fo the British Prime Mlnlsler) has dictated too long to our. State Department." Richards said he understood French officials "beneath tho surface" favored the Formosa decision, although Ihelr public comments have been somewhat guarded. Ke said the French were under "heavy pressure In Indochina and want to see the Communists occupied somewhere else." DULLES (Continued from Page 1) the move. Eden disclosed that Britain had been advised of the decision In advance and Imd made known to Washington Its "concern." The foreign secretary told the tense House that Britain fears the freeing of Chiang Kai-shek's forces for nUacks on the Communist mainland will have "unfortunate political repercussions without compensating military advantages." He gave no further explanation. Touchy suctions ot the British press also protested today against Dulles recent remark thnt the United States may do some "rethinking" on Its policy toward Western Europe unless Prance, Germany and Britain can get together for mutual defense. Lord Beaverbrook's Dally Express described this as a "slap In the face." New Fighting Fc.ire.l Britain's underlying concern, as slated privately by government officials, is that the Formosa decision may touch off new fighting between Chinese Communists and Chtairj Kai-shek's Nationalists and eventually embroil Allied nations in a spreading war. Under Elsenhower's order, the U. S. Seventh Fleet no longer will be used to prevent the Nationalists, operating out of their Formosa bastion, from raiding the Chinese mainland. In the House of Commons yesterday, Eden disclosed Hint before the President's decision was announced, Britain bud expressed hope through diplomatic channels lhat the U. S. had no Intention of a b a n d o n 1 n B Us ncnlra.ljzn.tlon policy. In their tnlks with Dulles. Eden and Prime Minister Churchill were oxpecled to call for assurances that the United Stales, will take no steps that might explode the Korean War Into an Asia-wide conflict. The conversations arc expected to cover the whole range of future relations between the United States and Britain, Including economic questions. Dulles and Harold Stnsscn, the director of the Mutual Security Agency, are on a 10-dny "look- sec" tour of seven European capitals. They leave tomorrow for Bolm, Germany. London's newspapers lectured Dulles sharnly today on several aspects of American foreign policy that have developed since he look office.

"Let him understand also that the people of these islands sre n proud people, conscious 'of their own destiny. They did not allow the Germans to push them around, nor will they allow anyone else not even well-meaning friends." The Influential Independent Times expressed puzzlement over Eisenhower's statement in his state of the Union address Monday that the U. s. will not honor secret agreements "permitting the enslavement of other peoples."

Burial Boaid Bill Faces Hew Change to Include Negroes By KAV STEPHENS LITTLE ROCK Uf, _ A much- amended bill that would set up a stale board to regulate Arkansas burial policy companies was to be amended again today to provide ihal Negroes be represented on the board. Sen. Jack V. Clark cf Tcxarkana said he would offer the amendment, which would Increase the membership or Ihe proposed board from seven lo 10. He said (he rider further would provide lhat at least two of the 10 members be Negroes. "Forty-four ol the 180 burial companies in Arkansas are operated for Negroes," said Clark. "I think this gives them the right to representation on a board lhat Is going to set Ihe policy for the business." The bill has stirred up a storm on controversy over a letter mailed to members of the Arkansas Burial Association by officials of the organization asking that they contribute J75 "so thai we can proceed" with the legislation. Bearden Want* C'larJficaiton Ken. J. Lee Bearden of Leach- vlllc (old representatives of the Association at a meeting of the Senate Finance and Banking Committee yesterday that he would oppose the bill until a detailed statement _ of how the money is to be spent was made public. Bearden said the letter left the inference that the "slush fund" was to be used to pay off. the Legislature. Hubert Holmes of Augusta, acting secretary of the Association, told the Committee lhat the money was lo pay attorney and public relations fees and set up the board if the bill passes. Five Amendments Added The Commillee then recommended that the bill pass, but added two amendments. Later, the Senale added three more riders to the bill. The board would be composed of members of the Association, and would be appointed by Gov. Cherry. The companies now are regulated by the Slate Banking Commission. . A bill to require a 30-day cooling off period In divorce cases was passed unanimously by the Senale yesterday. An amendment to exempt cases Involving desertion for more than a year or separation for three years was added. The House bill aulhored by Rep. Joel Ledbetter of Pulaski County, which would extend liquor permits automatically from year to year on payment of taxes, also was approved. Under current law, liquor permits must be renewed each year. The House turned down a Senate bill to change the method of marking ballots in elections. The bill, written by Sen. James D, Johnson of Crosselt and 'passed previously In the Senate, would have called for marking of ballots by the method in use before 1940— striking out the lyimes of candidates or Issues which the voter opposed. Now a voter makes an "X" opposite the name of a candidate of issue he favors. Johnson introduced in the Senate yesterday another bill similar to the one rejected in the House. The House refused to amend a bill by Rep. Jim Coutes Jr., of Pulaski County to exempt from requirements for a pre-mairiage examination for syphilis members of certain religious sects, marriage examination for syphilis members of certain religious sects. Now they're two like bills in the House—one bearing the amendment; the other without it.
