Thirteen police men under Sgt. I.yle Dennison handled the crowd and the re- rr i ting of traffic. 60 FIREMEN RESPOND Sixteen pieces of equipment manned by 60 firemen responded to the fourth alarm oh the fire at 8:01 p.m. The first alarm was turned in 19 minutes before that by John Janiak, 13, of 9904 Wal nut St., a boy dealer for The Franklin Lucero had taken over effective control of the Argen tine government and had started negotiations with navy forces to avoid civil war and bloodshed.

Ignacio Riasol were believed al ready to have been given their provisional release j pending trial. It was not known how many rriests were freed. Eighty-five have been arrested since last November, but most have been turned loose after brief deten tion. j TWO ARRESTED Two priests I were ! arrested today and police explained that priests and nuns had been asked to go to police stations for "pro tection against communist ele roents and had then been transferred to private homes for safety. Surrounded by his three armed forces chiefs, Peron today set up his headquarters in the Army Ministry. The army smashed the ill-fated naval-air gamble on armed revolt which cost 360 dead and nearly 1,000 wounded.

Twice in the last eight months alone, vandals have attempted to let the school afire. 4 f Pictures on Page 12 3 Turncoat Yanks to Quit As Red China 2 Belgians Also Will leave; 2 of 5 Shun Homelands TOKYO, June 18.

A spokesman said the fifth plane in the flight from Hensley Field at Dallas was missing. He said the pilot of the other four planes all were reported safe. The Navy planes, all single- place jets, were on a training flight from the Texas base to Buckley Naval Air Station here. The air-rescue spokesman said the first plane crashed on highway near Ness City, Kan A second was battered to earth, out of control, near Weskan Kan.

Cowart tasked, to go to Japan and Ver dyck to Laos. (In Washington, Government officials said a decision on admitting Devriendt to the United States would be made when and if he files an application for an entry permit. They added that several factors would have to be taken into consideration in cluding whether he asked for political asylum or sought admission under the Belgian im migration quota. Also a factor, they said, would be his choice of communism at the end of the Korean war.) The five were not present at a gathering of all other former U.N. soldiers at which the Pei ping government's decision was announced. INVITED, REDS SAY Asked by a correspondent why the five were not at the meeting, Peiping quoted a Chi nese aea cross spokesman as saying they had been invited but had not come. lhey were free to come or not," he said.

Below is a quick guide to your favorite features: Key System Wage Talks At Standstill Longshore Union Chiff's Citizenship r ,On:e Again at Stake B MIKE ABRAMSON ; Longshore leader Harry Bridged goes on trial for his AmericVn citizenship again to morrow 'in San Francisco Fed eral Court. The Government's fourth ef fort in 16 years to denaturalize and deport the ILWU chieftain is a civil action charging Bridges with fraudulently obtaining citi zenship in 1945 by lying about communist affiliations. The denaturalization suit was filed May 25, 1949, simul taneously with criminal charges against Bridges, but was stayed indefinitely to give precedence to the perjury-conspiracy action After five months of trial Bridges' and two union aides were convicted and Bridges sen tenced to five years imprison ment only to have the decision reversed when the U.S. Supreme Court on June 15, 1953, ruled that the statute of limitations had expired before the indict ment was returned. THERE'LL BE NO JURY Unlike the criminal case which was heard by a jury, to morrow's court action will be heard only by a judge whose name, according to Federal Couft practice, will not be re vealed until the last minute. And also unlike the crimina trial, the government's case, has been bared in its entirety for study by the Bridges , defense battery. On tap are 10 witnesses and the testimony from a previous trial of a woman now dead who are expected to outline Bridges alleged communist activities and the nature of the party itself. ' The dead woman is the late Mrs. Irene Harris, a witness in the 1950 criminal trial who placed Bridges at a communist meeting, whose testimony at that time will be read into the record. EX-RED WITNESSES Three other 1950 witnesses against Bridges also will be called, according to Chief Asst. U.S. Atfy. Lynn H. Gillard. They are John Schomaker of Memo Park, Mervyn Rathbome of Half Moon Bay and Lewis H Michener Jr., of Long Beach, all former communists who claimed Bridges was also a party mem ber. Three former communists also wil) be called to testify on the nature of the party itself, a fact which the government must es tablish to show that Bridges, as a communist and a believer in violent overthrow of the gov ernment, was in a class of per sons not entitled to citizenship. They are Frank Meyer of Wood stock, N.Y.; Nat Honig of Los Angeles and John Lautner of Washington, D.C. , OTHERS TO BE CALLED Others to be called, Gillard says, are Capt. David L. Saun ders of San Francisco, a ship' officer and former communist who was a witness in the Los Angeles Smith Act trials; Bruce Hannon of Reno, a former ILWU official; Harry Hook of Redding, one-time San Francisco machin ists union official, and Charles Pfeiffer of Los Angeles, former ILWU official and communist party member.

Molotov arrived in Oakland yesterday on a note of amity instead of enmity. But the short, stocky diplo mat followed the time-tested practice of all Soviet official dom and stepped hurriedly from the train to a black limousine, heavily guarded by MVD agents. Appearing astonished by the throng awaiting his arrival he seemed to relax in the security of the big sedan wedged beside Georgi Zarubin, Soviet Ambassador to the U.S. and A. A. So- bolev, their ambassador to; the U.N. and voiced these two Sen tences: Thank you for the wel come you have given the Soviet delegation on us arrival, i wisn to express our cordial greetings to the people of San Francisco, the city where the United Na tions was born." j LONGEST COMMENT i It was the longest public comment he has made since he debarked in New York I last Monday. But whether the 500 spec tators who gathered at the southern Pacific Mole to see Molotov did so out of a spirit of welcome or curiosity was open to speculation. It was cer tain, however, that not all o them were, there out of Tespect. For just outside the portals of the station about 100- persons, bearing placards reading "Free the Baltics, were passing , out ii a J r j , ' .

GREETINGS CUT SHORT The public reception for Mblo tov and the Soviet delegation lasted less than five minutes Not even long enough for U.N dignitaries who had been wait ing for more than an hour to offer their prepared greetings, At a signal the motorcycle-led cortege started up, with ! the Molotov car in the lead, and the 17-car caravan zipped out the mole through the Oakland Army base and across the bridge on . the trucK decs in seven minutes. I In San Francisco, the siren screaming cycles led the caravan up the Bayshore Highway to Hillsborough to the 12-room white stuccp, two-s.tory man sion the Russians are renting for $4,000. for one week. SECRECY CLAMPS DOWN When they arrived the typical Russian, lid of secrecy was quickly clamped down. A dozen MVD agents took stations at) the front and rear entrance and around the grounds. One of the cold-eyed guards at the front gate smoked American cigaretes as a handful of curly haired moppets, from nearby homes, stared at him. Also charged with the security of the Russian party while they are Hillsborough residents,; the Hillsborough police stood beside the MVD men and scanned the curious who strolled past. Hillsborough has been warned, however, their new neighbors weren't courting friendly Visits. For prominently displayed on the spacious lawns are signs reading: "Notice: Private Property.
