9*0* T*W BLYTMEVILL1 (AIHt.y COURIER NEWS MONDAY, AUGUST 2, 1954 Tunisian Freedom Causes More Violence in Morocco C4S4JBLANCA Morocco (AP) — Violence surged higher today in freedom-seeking Morocco'as'word'spread France had offered autonomy to its sister North African protectorate of Tunisia. In Tunisia, French Premier Pierre MundfiS-Fr&nce's dramatic offer brought a lull in killing as jubilant nationalists proclaimed the French move a stepping stone toward complete independence. The Premier said France would retain respoHsibiiicy only for the protectorate's defense and foreign Some Dissatisfied But die-hard French colonists in Tunisia angrily assailed the autonomy offer. Some demanded that the French National Assembly tferow out Mendes-France. As soon as word of partial sovereignty promised to Tunisia reached Morocco,- acts of terrorism increased. A Frenchman was shot to death in Casablanca arid a bomte, apparently set by nationalists, blew up another Frenchman's car. A section of rail line was cut and four fires were started in Sale. The French News Agency reported four Moorish women and a child were trampled to death near Fez. The French said that incident was touched off when Nationalists began riotous celebrations over rumors of the return of former Moroccan Sultan Sidi Mohammed Ben Youssef, exiled in Madagascar for failing to cooperate with French authorities. Two Minor Incidents Only two minor incidents have been reported in Tunisia sijce Mendes-France made his eventful visit Saturday and told the Bey of Tunis his people could set up their own internal government if they stopped killing Frenchmen. For years unrest had gripped the protectorate — under French rule since 1881. In the past two years nationalist extremists have turned to violence, killing French colonists and burning their farms and shops. Mendes-France warned Tunisian terrorists the killing of Frenchmen- must stop or he will send in enough troops to stamp out all disorders. He also warned the Bey, Sidi Mohammed Al Amin, that the French must be allowed to share in the future of Tunisia. Bond Set at $700,000 Each For Four Arrested as Reds (&)— TJ.S. Commissioner Joseph D. Neff at $100,000 each early today for four top communists nabbed together only one block from the Colorado Capitol Building by FBI agents. A fifth •was arrested in Los Angeles. Three men and a woman were taken by FBI agents to city jail here for fingerprinting, then to the county jail. Commissioner Neff said a preliminary hearing would be held Aug. 16. .

Before Faubus issued today's statement Cherry had indicated he would discuss his opponent's connection with Commonwealth on television tonight. The governor said he had "documented and corroborated" proof. Last Friday Little Rock weekly newspaper publisher John F. Weils editorially asked Faubus if he had ever been a student at Commonwealth. The next day Faubus accused Cherry of starting a "whispering campaign" against, him and denied that he had attended or taught at Commonwealth. Jones Backs Faubus Cherry in turned denied the Faubus' accusation and said he had not planned to inject Commonwealth into the race. But, he said, since Faubus had brought up the matter be was going to "defend"' himself. Yesterday State Sen, Guy Jones of Conway, who ran third in last Tuesday's preferential Democratic primary, said he was supporting Faubus in the runoff, which win be settled Aug. 10. The fourth place runner, Gus McMillan of Sheridan, previously had announced bis backing of Faubus. Cherry ran first in the preferential, but failed to get a majority of all votes cast. Faubus ran second. Cherry yesterday spoke briefly at a statewide rally of his supporters at Little Rock. Two former opponents in the 1952 governor's \ race, Boyd Tackett and Jack Holt, ! i also spoke. The governor also made two two promises in his campaign for second term: 1. He pledged ETC. 3RD GRAF LR4 deleting 5TH GRAF "Orval Faubus x x x of Faus" and last seven grafs beginning "riding a statement etc." 1. He pledged that, he would not campaign in behalf of the proposed 100 per cent property tax assessment .which goes to the voters in November's general election. Cherry said, 'T'he people have indicated they are opposed to this measure and I accept their decision in all humility." 2. Cherry formally came out with a statement that he would "use every legal means to disprove the need' Tor rate increases for Arkansas Power & Light Co. and Arkans Louisiana Gas Co. Bot-h utilities have appealed to the state Public Service Commission for rate increases, and both requests have been suspended, pending a hearing. Jones said he had been approached by Cherry supporters to endorse the governor "or at le&st go fishing." "They suggested my campaign had been very expensive and I needed to be reimbursed." Jones said "And they told me they had evidence that would make it impossible for me to support Faubus. Jones said the Cherry supporters refused to produce the "evidence" for him.

Sen. Dirksen (R-I11) said he would block any unanimous consent request. Show Down Asked Dirksen disclosed the strategy of McCarthy supporters when he said in an interview that he will oppose any amendment to the Flanders proposal or any substitute for it. "I want this thing settled," he said. "The Senate should take the Flanders proposal straight, without the ginger ale of amendments or substitutes. This issue ought not be left hanging in the air." Sen. Goldwater (R-Ariz) said this represented substantially the attitude of a large majority of the Senate's 48 Republicans. On the opposite side, Flanders also called for a showdown vote. Knowland said last night he ant- cipates another day or two of debate and then, probably, a Senate decision to turn the whole issue over to some committee for study. Any such result would delay action at least until after the November elections. Whether McCarthy could get a vote on the unadorned Flanders proposal — which even such critics of the Wisconsin senator as Sen. Jackson (D-Wash) predicted wouldn't pass — seemed to depend on what sort of a substitute could be found that would appeal widely to the Democrats and to a few Republicans critical of McCarthy. McCarthy, in a talk yesterday at Johnstown, Pa., made no direct reference to any of this but appealed to his approximately 15,000 listeners for greater support for "me and my Investigators," and he added: "I say to you now, there are no tactics too rough to weed out the underground influence which threatens the very heart of the American republic. While I am in the Senate I do not intend to use any delicate means in hunting out Communists . . .

McCarthy, who spoke at a Catholic Day celebration sponsored by the Johnstown Catholic Athletic Assn.. s^-id every Communist move PSC Opens Hearing On Power Rates LITTLE ROCK W — The Public Service Commission today dispatched three staff auditors to Pine Bluff to check charges that Arkansas Power and Light Co. has been overcharging on electric bills. Lewis Robinson, chairman of the PSC, said that a course of action would not be announced until the auditors make their report — probably Thursday. Robinson saia mac the commission still was being flooded with calls from people complaining about the size of their electric bills. Some customers reported that their bills had been hiked as much as 50 to 100 per cent. AP&L, whose central offices are located in Pine Bluff, had stated previously that residential bills would go up an average of 17 per cent. The PSC opened hearings today that originally were not scheduled to open until fall. Robinson said yesterday the hearings would open earlier because of the many complaints. Robinson said the auditors would check to see how bills have been affected by the new increases—and how much they have been affected by the increased use of electricity. in the country must be investigated "regardless if it hurts the Democrats or the Republicans." Sen. Cooper (R-Ky) publicly joined the ranks of the McCarthy opponents when he told the Senate Saturday he will vote for the Flanders resolution. Cooper said he believes McCarthy has "at times abused his great powers" as chairman of the Senate's Permanent Investigations subcommittee. There was some speculation that Sen. McCleJlan (D-Ark) might author a substitute to Flanders' resolution which would postpone a decision until a subcommittee report has been issued on the long McCarthy-Army controversy. That may be delayed beyond the adjournment of Congress. Sen. Fulbright (D-Ark) suggested that Democratic members could go ahead with their' own report on the word battle between McCarthy and Secretary of the Army Stevens. Fulbright said it could be used as the basis for specific charges against McCarthy on which he might be censured. Obituary BlytheYille Man's Father Succumbs Services for Floyd S.
