Curious Lad Gets Big Scare LOS ANGELES (/P) — Four-year- old Saul Rodriguez, being an inquisitive little fellow, opened a second-story window Monday a few minutes after his mother had left to take her daughter to school. Saul leaned out, lost his balance, fell and wound up hanging from the window Sill by his fingertips 20 feet above a concrete walk. Just then a police car came by. Officer Robert Lea ran to the spot below the window, just as Saul let go. The boy landed squarely in the policeman's arms, unhurt but tearfully scared. ADENAUER (Continued from Page W been reached after the harsh words exchanged earlier between the negotiators. There had been a tendency to write off the conference as a dead loss, while applauding Adenauer's stubborn stand in dealing with the Russians. Clarification Awaited Clarification of what the last- minute agreement means for the future of Germany was awaited anxiously here. Before voicing approval of the conference outcome, political and diplomatic circles wanted to know what concrete gains, if any, weije made by the West Germans. Some responsible sources expressed fear that the Russians had gained recognition that there are two separate German states. Observers thought the Russians had skillfully avoided committing themselves to any definite action toward reuniting Germany. A big puzzle was the German announcement that the Russians had promised to return 9,626 Germans held prisoner as war criminals. Because the prisoners were not mentioned either in the exchange of letters between Adn- auer and Soviet Premier Bulganin or in the communique on the talks, politicians and diplomats asked pi ivately: How are the Russians to be kept to their bargain? Before cheering the conference results, the German public also will want to know if others of their countrymen are going to be freed. The West Germans have said 100,000 or so Germans still are being held in Soviet prison camps. Bulganin said during the Moscow talks the 9,626 Germans convicted as war criminals are all the Ger mans still detained by the Soviet Union. To Investigate Adenauer said the Soviet leaders "promised to investigate and said if others were found, they would be handed over in the same way as the so-called war criminals." An indication of the bewilderment in Bonn was the fact. that Adenauer's own Christian Democrat party withheld comment on the agreement until it could hear his explanation. The opposition Socialists said they regarded the result, of the! talks "with gravity and concern."] Thomas Dehler, chairman of the Free Democrats, the second lar^-1 est party in the Adenauer coalition, j said he was deeply disappointed. • New Carnegie Course Planned The fourth Dale Carnegie, course in leadership training to be conducted here this year will begin bet. 3 under sponsorship of the Blythevllle Dale Carnegie Club International, an organization founded this summer by graduates of the courses. The club will handle enrollment for the course which will be conducted at Hotel Noble, The committee in charge of enrollment includes Tom Little Jr., president; Roland Karr, It. governor; Kemp Whisenhunt and A. F. Dietrich. Other officers in the club are Milton M. Howard, vice president; Helen C. KEUT, secretary treasurer; and J. P. Scrape, progress chairman. The club meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. New National Park WASHINGTON (fl — Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, in the making many years and authorized by law since- 1940, today formally becomes the 181st area administered by the National Park Service. It is made up of some 20,100 acres of land at the junction of Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia. Martial Law Extended ANKARA, Turkey W) — Martial law, imposed after wild anti-Greek riots last week, has been extended for six months in Turkey's three biggest cities, Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir. The extension was voted overwhelmingly fay Parliament. U.S. (Continued from Ps«« » tatives and he had fuH American support. The position Adenauer took on unification at the outset of the Moscow talks was that it was properly a problem for the October foreign ministers' meeting. He then concentrated, as Washington officials understand his moves, on obtaining a Soviet promise t o release thousands of German men still held in Russia 10 years after the end of World War n The Soviets, while insisting on establishment of diplomatic relation* first, argued that they could not negotiate the prisoner release problem without the presence of representatives of the East German Communist regime. Some reports say that at one point Adenauer was prepared to break off the talks, refuse diplomatic relations and go home because the Soviets were unwilling to yield on the prisoner problem. It thus appeared in the final outcome that a Russian concession on the price Adenauer wanted for opening diplomatic relations made the final agreement possible. The Soviets presumably want to prevent or at the, least slow down the rearmament of West Germany within the Atlantic Alliance and the Western European Union. They may hope to use a diplomatic mission in Germany to work for that purpose. It is also believed that the Soviets are interested in developing trade and other relationships w West Germany which would be profitable to them in solving some of their pressing agricultural and industrial problems.
