Both Commons and the House of Lords, which also debated the controversial Suez issue, begin their summer recess today. They will not reconvene until October, Churchill, who in World War II remarked he had not become prime minister in order to liquidate the empire, declared yesterday the whole British position in the Suez had been outdated by "the appalling developments and the appalling spectacles which imagination raises before us." Obsolete "Merely to try to imagine in outline how to portray the first few weeks of a war as it is now. . . would convince you of the obsolescence of the base/" he asserted. The agreement, which has strong U.S. suppqrt, calls for the transfer of 83,000 British troops from their Suez base within 20 months after a seven-year pact '-, signed.

Mansfield (D-Mont) told the Senate yesterday that millions of dollars of U.S. equipment fell into Communist hands recently in Indochina. More, he said, was destroy ed to avoid a similar fate. Sen. Wiley (RWis), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, read yesterday a letter from Secretary of State Dulles saying the Indochina armistice does not justify any reduction in the foreign aid budget. Dulles said the armistice "in creases the need" for anti-Communist defenses. A 91-0 vote yesterday emphasized again solid Senate opposition to giving Red China a seat in the United Nations. The provision calls upon the President to inform Congress of what steps should be taken if Red China ever is admitted. A 57-33 vote defeated an effort by Sen. Capehart (R-Ind) to require that half the non-military aid in the bill, or 750 million dollars, be in the form of loans rather than grants. The bill now requires loans on 150 million dollars of such aid. McMasters. M. L. Downing. E. E. Hart, L L. Woodruff. D. C. Wright, C. L. King. C. H. Ashabranner and B. B. Threlkeld.

(Continued from Page 1* cept to say he probably' won't be on hand to hear the Vermonter's speech. But he took a dig at Sen. H. Alexander Smith (R-NJ) who suggested a seven-member committee headed by Vice President Nixon be set up to investigate "McCarthyism" and report back next year. McCarthy said: "I think I will offer either an amendment to the Flanders resolution or a separate resolution providing that in view of the fact there is a difference of opinion as to whether Smith is a brilliant, average or mediocre senator I would like to have the Senate investigate that and report back in 1970 or 1980." Sen. Fulbright (D-Ark) predicted that if the issue of McCarthy's conduct of Communist-in-government inquiries can be brought to a direct vote, the Senate would censure him. But Fulbright said he recognized such a vote might be avoided. "A majority of senators don't want to vote on this at all," he said. Sen. Monroney (D-Okla), like Fulbright a vigorous critic of McCarthy, was less sure of the result. He said he doubts more than 5 of the Senate's 47 Republicans would vote with Flanders. He guessed about 33 of the Senate's 48 Democrats might support the censure resolution . The Oklahoman said, however, that the attitude taken by Sen, McClellan (D-Ark) on his return to Washington Monday now influence Chessman Gets Fourth Stay Of Execution SAN QUENTIN, Calif. Iff)—Caryl Chessman, convicted sex terrorist turned best-selling author, relaxed in prison today after his fourth reprieve from execution in six years. Two other condemned men whom California's law enforcement chief insisted deserved as much consideration as Chessman were scheduled to die in San Quentin's lethal gas chamber at 10 a.m. Chessman—32 year old convict author of "Cell 2455, Death Row" —was granted a new stay of execution by State Supreme Court Justice Jesse Carter yesterday- less than 24 hours before his scheduled execution. Collide at Intersection Malin Moody and Amos Whitley were involved in a traffic accident Thursday evening at Ash and Second streets causing some damage to both vehicles , according to police reports. Pilots to Strike Tonight CHICAGO W — The APL Air Lines Pilots Assn. says it will strike against American Airlines at mid- nigt tonight. Clarence Sayen, ALPA president said all of American's more than 1,200 pilots would strike. TAXES other Democrats. McClellan, senior Democrat on McCarthy's Investigations subcommittee, has declined to say thus far how he stands on the Flanders proposal. (Continued from Page W tors contended that once the principle went into the law it could never be uprooted and probably would be extended. Under it, the first $50 of dividend income is excluded entirely in figuring income tax. The major r*. lief, though, com«« from * proK. sion permitting a stockholder to deduct from his tax 4 per cent of his dividend income above $50. More Equity Supporters of this argued ft would in part end "double taxation" of corporation profits, and also would provide more equity capital for business expansion. Democrats contended 80 per cent of the relief, estimated at 360 millions a year when the plan reaches full effect, would go to one-sixth of 1 per cent of the population. Most of the benefits in the bill s,re effective as of last Jan. 1 and thus can. be figured in on returns filed next year. The bill, incidentally, tosses out the traditional March 15 filing date in effect since the income tax law was passed in 1913. and substitutes April 15. Fine Is Suspended In Assault Case Delia Carr recieved a suspended fine of $50 in Municipal Court this morning on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon in connection with striking another Nergo woman with a hoe.
