And there is no joy in Fisherman's "Wharf today even though the mighty DiMaggio has struck out for there. Lonely Marilyn slept last night in the $l,000-a-month Beverly Hills home that she and Joe rented. She planned to report for work on her picture at 9 a.m. DiMaggio left her yesterday in about as final a departure as Hollywood ever has seen. He came out. of the house -with his - bags packed and a grim smile on his face. Marilyn, for the first time, lost her composure before the press yesterday and had nothing to say. She sobbed almost to the point of collapse. Some cynics called them phony tears but Marilyn would be the first to admit that she isn't a good enough actress to play the scene the way it was played. Her departure from the house was billed as a return to work but actually it never was intended to be. She wasn't in the mood to play comedy and after a five-minute drive to lawyer Jerry Giesler's office, she returned home. Joe said as he drove off for San Francisco in his Cadillac: "San home."

Detectives Robert Brown and Charles Hancock said they found the 32-year-old blonde unconscious in her apartment.

He indicated he would seek formal ratification of the new pact next month. The Assembly got its first crack at the London agreements hardly four days after the conference ended, but already some 65 questions have been filed by deputies well aware of how deep feeling on the German rearmament issue runs in France. The Premier appeared to have carried the first round of his fight yesterday in an active meeting of the Assembly Foreign Ar-fairs Committee. It did not vote approval or disapproval. But in a communique it praised the Premier's performance at London, where he won a British commitment to keep troops on the European continent and German agreement to West European control of her rearmament. . . The Premier also disclosed to the committee he would meet with West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer on Oct. 20 to resume negotiations on the Saar question.

M. Molotov's bid for new four-power talks on German reunification gained quick support today in the West German Parliament. The powerful Socialist party- Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's chief opposition demanded some new active step by the West to meet with the Russians on the question of German unity. It also urged the formation of a European security pact within the framework of the United Nations. Western observers viewed Molotov's proposal as the opening blast in the Kremlin drive to torpedo West German ratification of the recent London rearmament agreement. The first West German reaction indicated the Soviet move may give the Chancellor trouble in his campaign to win approval at home for the London defense alliance with the West. j Useless Approach The Socialist position was outlined to Parliament by. Party Chairman Erich Ollenhauer. He told the West German lawmakers that without a new effort to reach agreement with the Soviets on German unity, the London Agreement is a "useless" approach to a solution of Europe's problems. . Ollenhauer assailed Adenauer's policy of stiong ties with the West. He declared the rearmament of West Germany ' would be expensive, "dangerous" and, in the long run, no contribution to the world's security.- Ollenhauer's demands differed little from Molotov's proposal. "? " 'made at an East Berlin rally .jasj. night on the eve of the fifth birthday anniversary of the Communist-ruled East German Re public. Calling for immediate withdrawal of occupation troops from Germany and new talks on German reunification, the Soviet foreign minister said; - - "The Soviet government express their readiness to discuss- proposals made by the participants in the Berlin conference as well as any new proposals on free German elections." Offers Hope of Unity Though Molotov did not specifically commit his government to free all-German elections, in effect he offered the Germans the hope they could reunify their country on that basis if they give up rearming and alliance with the West. In contrast to that, Molotov repeatedly warned the West Germans that acceptance of the London agreement to give them sovereignty and arms within the NATO alliance would end all possibility of reuniting their divided country.
