Nevertheless, the decision announced by the President yesterday to go ahead without Russia on an international atomic agency plan would appear to put the Soviet somewhat on the spot since they have so far indicated no interesl 3433 in sharing their own atomic ener- 3467 gy know-how and resources with 3505 anybody else. 3526 What Eisenhower disclosed was that the United States government has agreed with other nations to set up an agency to "foster the growth and spread of new atomic technology for peaceful use.' "The President did not name the countries, but an aide at the Summer White House in Denver said they are Britain, France, Canada, South Africa and Australia. Seeks Cooperation Eisenhower expressed hope that "no nation will long stand aloof" from the enterprise. This seemed clearly to keep the door open for Russian cooperation, : For the time being, the President made clear, the project aims to provide benefits for friendly, free nations. He said the intent of the nations joining in the undertaking is to share atomic technology "with others of good will." Other non-Communist countries may join the project shortly. It is known that there have been negotiations with Belgium, which controls one of the world's great uranium producing areas in the Belgian Congo. South Africa and Australia are in the project as producing countries. The United States, Britain and Canada are in as countries with atomic industry and France as one with skill in atomic research and development. The President's new plan primarily can achieve two things: It can demonstrate America's interest in atomic developments for peace to build up power sources in power-short areas. Also, it can provide a practical enterprise in which the United States and its principal allies work together to create something new and better in the world. Eisenhower said, "Atomic materials for projects sponsored by this agency "will be set aside for that purpose." The United States is going ahead with the atomic pool under the 164 157 Faubus Flies To Washington Seeking Aid LITTLE ROCK </P>—Qrval Faubus said today that he will try to "convince federal officials that we have a disaster on our hands in Arkansas." The Democratic nominee for governor plans to leave here tonight by plane on a quick trip to Washington. He plans to meet wth Arkansas Senators William Fulbright and John L. McClellan and Walter C. Berger'of the Department of Agriculture's Commodity Stabilization Service. Faubus. who attended a meeting of Arkansas cattlemen at Paris last night, said that if more drought aid is not available within the next three weeks "they can forget the farmers and start feeding the hungry people." He said that by the end of three weeks "the farmers and cattlemen, who cannot make it will be gone, and federal drought assistance will be of no benefit. MCCARTHY SEATO authority of the new atomic energy law the President signed a week ago. That law permits sharing of certain atomic secrets with allies. Books Replace 'Comics' CANTON, Ohio W — Youngsters watched their crime and horror comic books ripped up yesterday at the Stark County Fair.

Reservation Needed U.S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles was quoted as telling the negotiators the United States could not sign a treaty without some form of reservation from other members explaining that ^e do not consider any aggression the same as Communist aggression." Dulles stressed, the source said, that the United States considers Communist aggression in Asia the same as an attack on the United States. On the other hand, he said, a local war in the Far East would not be considered by the President and Congress because it would not be a threat to the United States. 'This is a very complex matter but it's not going to hold up signing of the treaty," Dulles said. 'However, all will have to understand our position when the treaty is signed." The source said France has submitted a possible solution to the problem of whether Laos, Cambodia and Southern Viet Nam should be included in the treaty area. The French delegation proposed a "document of protocol" which would add the three states to the area covered by the treaty although they would not play as active a role in SEATO as other members. The source said that if the French proposal is accepted it may also be used to cover Indochina under economic provisions of the treaty. from Pa* tt brief were "only the views" of Chadwick and his assistant, Guy de Furia, and that "no decision" on the points of law had been made by the committee itself. Among other things, Williams said Chadwick had expressed the conclusion in the brief it was not important that McCarthy had not been subpoenaed by the Senate elections subcommittee investigating his financial affairs and other matters in 1951 and 1952. "He arrived at this startling conclusion before hearing our defense," said Williams, who previously has taken the position that the elections subcommittee had acted beyond the scope of its authority. Also put into the record was a May 27 order by President Eisen- I hower which McCarthy denounced j during the McCarthy-Army hear- ! ings as a "gag." Williams protested it was irrelevant. Chadwick said the order, and a supporting memorandum by Atty. Gen. Brownell, was offered for whatever bearing it might have . on "the use, utilization or publication" of classified information. Eisenhower's May 27 order, in the form of a letter to Secretary of Defense Charles E. Wilson, forbade participants in a high-level administration conference from testifying at the McCarthy-Army hearings as to what occurred at the conference. Eisenhower cited the constitutional separation of powers, and said, it was essential that members of the executive branch advise freely among themselves without their conversations being made public. 'Howdy Doody' Star Stricken NEW ROCHELLE, N. Y. L?) — Bob Smith, 36, the "Buffalo Bob" of the "Howdy Doody" children's television show on the NBC network, was reported in "good condition and resting comfortably" today following a heart attack.
