GOP (Continued from Page 1) tiUties until German surrender only were carrying out their duties, he said. Members of the West German delegation said there would not be another session today. Adenauer was scheduled to go sightseeing this afternoon. Diplomatic circles expected the West.

Asked what he would do if thei President said "no" to second i term pleas, Wyatt replied with a 1 wry grin; "I'd commit suicide." Chairman G. Harold Alexander said Florida Republicans are "not thinking in terms of anybody but Eisenhower.'* George Longmire. North Dakota chairman, snid Eisenhower should announce his intentions this mil.' Longmlre said that if Adlai E. Stevenson says in November he is a candidate for the Democratic nomination again, "the President ought to say soon after that whether he is going to run." January Soon Enough Al'Cast, Indiana state chairman. thought a January announcement would be soon enough to "simplify our campaign problems." j New Jersey's chairman. Samuel L. Bodine, snid it is important for present Republican office holders to know whether The President is going to run. adding that "the sooner he announces the better," Perry Compton, Missouri chairman, was one'of the few who would even admit the possibility that the President won't be a candidate again. Compton said he thought that if Eisenhower did decline, hi.s brother, Milton Eisenhower, would make a good candidate. Milton Eisenhower, president of Pennsylvania State College, has .represented the President on several missions. Compton said Vice President Nixon would be his second choice for the nomination. John T. Diederich, Kentucky chairman, said he was reenforcine his own personal plea for a second term race by presenting the President a resolution unanimously adopted by the Kentucky Slate Committee urging Eisenhower, to run. to this view. Adenauer told the Kremlin chieftains he expected the Moscow talks to be just the first ot many which would lead eventually to establishment of normal relations. Soviet Premier Nikolai Bulganin and Communist party boss Nikita S. Khrushchev arrived for today's talks three minutes ahead of Adenauer and his Foreign Minister Heinrich von Brentano. Aboard Train Adenauer and his delegation planned strategy for the meeting aboard a German train in the rail- yards outside Leningrad Station. They are holding their confidential talks aboard the train because of their skepticism concerning security at their Sovietskaya Hotel headquarters. While the conferees faced each other across the negotiating table in their second session, Moscow residents clustered at wallboards covered with newspapers giving full text; of Adenauer's opening statement. It was the first time most Soviet citizens had ev«r seen West Germany's views on the return of German war prisoners still held by the Soviets and on reunification of Germany. The Soviet press gave the talks tremendous publicity. The first and second pages of Pravda and Izves- tia were almost entirely devoted to the conferences. Both papers printed eight-column pictures of the ceremony. The West looked to the detailed discussions for , a line on Soviet strategy for next month's conference of Big Pour foreign ministers in Geneva. Adenauer in his opening statement yesterday set out West Germany's position on establishment of the normal relations the Soviet Union has urged. He said a normal relationship between the two countries could not be achieved without first resolving the causes of abnormal relationship. It would be ''unthinkable," he .said, to decree a normal relationship unless the German war prisoners still held by Russia are freed. Adenauer made it clear his government believes the problem, of German reunification must be settled by the former occupying powers, Britain. France, the Soviet Union and the United States. He urged the Russians to "dedicate all your energy to rapid solution of this problem." But lie cmpha sized he would not enter separate negotiations with the Soviet Union on the problem .

TRUMAN (Continued from Page 1) 'not a Democrat—-he's a Shivers- crat.'' In Washington, the Democratic National Committee made public a letter from Dr. Wallace H. Gra- liam, Truman's personal physician since 1945. Graham said he "cannot allow' Truman to make two California speeches.because the former president's "tour of lectures to Detroit Toledo and Chicago are arranged on such dates that it would be impossible for him to recuperate fully "or a trip to California Sept. 12." There had been reports Truman canceled appearances at California 'und raising dinners because he was "sore" at Edwin W. Pauley, a prominent California Democrat. Graham wrote the committee :h a I Trumnn is a "man of tre- nendous energy and strength" but that "his reserve has been considerably undermined by his last ill- icss after he underwent surgery." Graham said the former president committed himself to the Cali- ornia appearances "before I had a chance to evaluate and be consulted in regard to his proposed schedule. 'He has been, and still is. ex- .remefy desirous of fulfilling the California engagement. This I can not allow." In his speech to the Executives 21ub, Truman asserted the Eisenhower administration already has trimmed the nation's armed forces oo far and apparently intends to rim them more.
