De Gaulle Acts Against Rebels; Dulles Invited PARIS (J) Premier de Gaulle bluntly told the de-fiant insurgents in Algeria today to quit interfering in government, and slapped down his military, commander there. . De Gaulle sent off a sharp note to his military commander in Algeria, Gen. Raoul Salan, after a Cabinet meeting devoted mainly to foreign affairs. A Cabinet spokesman said one decision was to invite Secretary of State Dulles to Paris to confer with De Gaulle next month. In Washington, diplomatic sources reported such an tion had been forwarded to Dulles. De Gaulle's most immediate problem was to restore his authority over the troublesome territory of Algeria. De Gaulle replied sharply to a resolution by the All-Algeria Committee of Public Safety Tuesday opposing his plan for local elections in Algeria and condemn ing parliamentary government in France. He criticized Salan for letting his name be used as approving! the committee action, even though Salan later disavowed the resolu tion.

Their talk dealt pnmaiuy u urn cmunj atomic problems, including me possibility of suspending nuclear weapons The President has made no iinaij decision on what the U.S. test sus - pension ponuy uc anci mc current tests in the Pacific. It is understood that both Macmillan and he felt it was wise to delay definitive policy action until two situations are clarified. Allied Countries Qualified The first is action by the U.S. Congress on an administration proposal under which the President could share secret information on nuclear weapons manufacture with Allied countries quali fied to use it. Macmillan has indicated that he would feel justified in halting tests only if Britain could get such information from this country. The other situation concerns the possibility of getting agreement with the Soviet Union on a system for policing a test suspension. Ei senhower has proposed that sci entific talks on this problem start July 1 at Geneva. Dulles told a news conference that if the Geneva talks produced a good understanding with the So-! viets, that would make it easier to reach an accord for suspending tests. But if the experts were un able to agree, he added, such an accord would almost automatically become impossible. Inside The Journal CASCADILLA SCHOOL pro-posed as site for residential parking.

House Passes Trade Bill WASHINGTON UV-The House, handing President Eisenhower a major legislative victory, today passed and sent to the Senate a bill continuing the reciprocal trade program for another five years. In doing so, it crushed any attempt to limit the program to two years and restrict the President's trade and tariff making authority, and one to send the whole thing back to a committee pigeonhole. First, it defeated 234-147 a sub Then it proceeded to vote down a move to send his proposal for a Ilve-year extension oi me reuipro- the editorial cal traa program oacx to a committee pigeonhole. The votes represented a nard- ii'rn i7iftirv fnr tho Pt-ocirlonf in yond June 30. With most Democrats swinging behind the President, the House defeated a substitute proposal authored by Rep.

State Names Crime Proher ALBANY, N. Y. (AP) - Atty. Gen. Louis J. Lefkowitz today ap pointed Robert E. Fischer of Binghamton to direct the new state investigation of crime and vice in Utica and the rest of Onei da County. Fischer, a former Broome Coun ty district attorney, will begin with a special $150,000 appropria tion to do the lob. He will be paid $23,000 a year. Lefkowitz announced the ap pointment at a news conference. He said he had given Fischer only one instruction: 'I want. . .a thorough ventila tion of the serious charges of al leged criminal activities which have been made." To Press Inquiry He said the inquiry must be pressed quickly and effectively and prosecutions "instituted im partially when justified by the facts uncovered." Both Lefkowitz and Fischer are Republicans. The Utica city administration is Democratic. Democratic Gov. Harriman had asked Lefkowitz to appoint a Republican to head the investigation. Lefkowitz said the governor's office was satisfied with his selec tion. Fischer said he had not asked cini ri: t- well to serve on his staff, as had been widely reported.
