The doctor's bulletin at 8:55 p.m Denver time Sunday stirred new anxiety over the chief executive's condition and brought to an abrupt end the string of encouraging reports which had come from the hospital bedside more than a week.

Clll.l-KN' XEA Staff Correspondent LONDON — (NEA) — Britain has its home-grown version of Ihe Alger Hiss case in! missing diplomats Guy Burgess and Donald Maclean, now officially revealed as long-term j Soviet spies. All that is lacking is a pumpkin stuffed with microfilm copies of secret docu-. menls. I But Donald Maclean, who was head of the American Department of the British Foreign j Office at the time of his disappearance four years ago, had no need for pumpkins. He merely took the top secret papers home, photographed them and returned them to the Foreign Office next morning, passing the microfilm copies to the Soviet Embassy in London. It was as simple as that. And when (he' heat was on—when Burgess and Maclean discovered that they were being investigated— they slipped out of the country through the buttery fingers of Britain's M.I.5 'Military Intelligence Section 5), which is perhaps more military than intelligent. That was in 1951. Two years later M.I.5 .obligingly allowed American- born Melinda Maclean and her three children to join her husband in his snug little dacha just outside Moscow. At least, no one was lookuu when Mrs. Maclean made her getaway from Geneva to disappear via Vienna behind the Iron Curtain. This much is known about ihe missing diplomats. What the British pjubiic would like to know is: Why were the security forces caught napping? ! Why, if they were suspected as through their net? spies, were Burgess and Maclean not j Faure, Pinay Postpone Visit To Moscow By HARVEY HUDSON PARIS (AP) — The French Foreign Office announced today the proposed visit of Premier Edgar Faure and Foreign Minister Antoine Pinay to .Moscow has been postponed.
