US Experts Work On Way to Detect Hidden Atom Arms By TOM HOCE UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP) — The U. N. Disarmament subcommittee wound up its talks last night with the announcement the United States has put eight task forces to work on schemes to detect hidden nuclear weapons and find ways of controlling arms. Eden Urges End To Flow of Arms To Middle East Calls for Big Power Agreement; Cites Israel-Arab War Risk By TOM OCIIILTREE Despite the fact that it was homecoming for the Tigers, both teams played the game as if they knew in advance what the outcome would be. But. except for a couple of payoff plays, the game could have been a scoreless tie. Blytheville's two touchdowns. both coming in the first half, were rather unusual. Good Blot king: .The first, resulted from a fine exhibition of blocking and running by the Chicks. But it was one ol tiie few times the Chicks looked themselves. The second was freakish. Their offense was sporadic. There were flashes of brilliance, but mostly the aitack appeared dull and lifeless. First score came late in the first period when Freddy Akers, the Chicks' quick tailback, hauled down a Whitehaven punt on his own 15, faked a handoff while his blockers set up a path down the left sideline to the goal and traipsed 85 yards for the score.

The*Denver White House put out* welcome mat for Vice President Nixon as the President continued to make normal progress from his heart attack. "The President had a good night's ~leep of more than eight hours," a 7 a.m. medical bulletin said. "This morning he is feeling rested and cheerful. His condition continues to progress satisfactorily without complications." In addition to the visit wih Nixon he Presiden's docors approved also his first major business conference since his heart attack Sept. 24—a foreign policy meeting next Tuesday with Secre- tar of State Dulles. It was Saturday two 'weeks ago that the President awakened in pain around 2 a.m. (MST. His physician, Maj. Gen. Howard M. Snyder later reported he suffered a heart attack:. May Go To Farm The passing this morning of the first two weeks—which physicians have described as the period of greatest danger after a seizure of coronary thrombosis—gave rise to hopes the President may be flown to his farm at Gettysburg, Pa., within 10 days to two weeks to begin a month of convalescence. The vice president is flying in from Washington this afternoon for bis first meeting with the President since Eisenhower's seizure. On the same plane are Dr. Paul Dudley White. Boston heart specialist; Maj. John Eisenhower, the President's -son, and Sherman Adams, the P r e s i d e n t's chief deputy. Dr. White, who examined the President personally after the attack, is returning for a new exami- na tion and a round of consultations with bedside doctors today and tomorrow. It will be on the basis of these consultations that decisions will be made on the extent to which Eisenhower may gradually increase his schedule of conferences. An uninterrupted series of medical bulletins this week reportin the president progressing "without complications," paved the way for the decision to set up Tuesday's conference with Dulles. On Geneva Meeting The conference, in the dent's sickroom at Fitasimons Army Hospital, will center around the agenda for the Geneva meeting of foreign ministers which Dulles will attend Oct. 27. Topics such as unification of Germany, European security, disarm am cut and increased East-West contacts are on the ituendn. Anv other dist-usMon. White House News Secretary James C.

Nixon's visit is described here n.s more social and personal than anything else. Doctors have ruled out any discussion qf controversial or complicated problems of any nature for the time being. Hncerty said the time of Dulles' call on the President Tuesday "will be determined by the doctors."

Pierre Btllote to Morocco dominated debate in the French National Assembly today a* it opened the final day of argument over Premier Edgar Faure's North African policies. Violent clashes at Rouen between police and demonstrators who backed up a refusal by troop reserves .to be shipped to .the North African battle front complicated the issue. About 1,500 demonstrators, including Communists singing the Interna- tionale, charged police at Rouen, and several were injured on both sides. The crowd threw stones and police replied with tear gas. The clash occurred after about 150 reservists in a group of 600, ob-~ jected to being shipped to North Africa's intermittent but bloody warfare. Shouted Protests After most of the men, members of the 406th antiaircraft artillery regiment, had boarded trucks for transportation to a troop train, the objectors began shouting protests and shut the barracks gates to prevent the trucks from departing. The ringleaders were quickly rounded up and the troop shipment went ahead. Last month another French detachment refused 1 to board a troop train for North Africa in the Lyon station of Paris. The unit was flown to its destination the next day. A, hostile demonstration also broke out at Rabat, capital of French Morrocco, against Francois dc Panafieu, chief civil affairs officer of Resident-General Pierre Boyer de Laiour. The noisy demonstrators were 150 members of the Presence Francaise, French residents who oppose Faure's program of giving Moroccan Nationalists a share in their own government. Prime Koto De Pannfieu hns been accused by the Presence Francaise of having a prime role in the recent, shelving of Sultan Mohammed Ben Moulay Arafa, pet hate of the Moroccan Nationalists, The fate of Fauere's program, and possibly of his seven-month- old government, apparently rested with the Socialists in the Asssem- bly. An announcement that the regency had been completed and the stymied Faure program at last was going forward, might be enough to persuade the Socialists at least, to r.bstain on the vote on Faure's policies. If they abstain Faure and hi* government- might survive. If they vote against him he is almost cer- iain to fall. Their decision may be made some lime after midnight tonight.
