Charles W. Barlow, Navy chief o.uartermaster from Charleston, W.VA., "is being held for investi- gation'by Navy authorities for alleged violation, of security regulations." the Navy announced. "The investigation has to do with suspicion of passing classified information concerning ship arrivals to two Chinese laundrymen, who used the Influence to gain advantage over their competitors in the ship-to-shore laundry business," it added. One Indicted Japanese authorities in Yokohama indicted laundryman Ku Yuan-pin on charges of spying at the huge U.S. Navy base here. The other laundryman was not identified. The Yokohama prosecutor's office said Ku had collected information from Navy personnel about operation of the base and movement of U.S. warships. Japanese authorities said the unidentified Chinese would not be charged with spying but might be cited for failure to register as an alien. They said the two "scores of times", entertained Navy men from the Yokosuka.

BIG FOUR (Continued from Page 1) rushing arms to Israel or formally guaranteeing its security at this time They evidently hoped to redress the situation by other means. The Western ministers have arranged to confer regularly among themselves in order to maintain the solid front they consider their greatest single source of strength in dealing with the Russians. The four ministers are meeting in the Council Room of the Palace of Nations, where the Big Four heads o fgovernment laid out genera! objectives at a summit conference three months ago. It was that gathering of government heads which developed, particularly between President Eisenhower and Soviet Premier Bulgan- In, ihe cordial relations and declarations for peace which have come to be known the world over as the "spirit of Geneva." Now Dulles. Macmillan, Pinay and Molotov are putting that spirit to the hard tes" of turning generalities into concrete accomplishments. At the out-set was the possibility of dispute on what to lake up first. The heads of government assigned as U;e first topic "European security and Germany." M o 1 o t o v ' s press spokesman Leonid Ilyichev told a press conference last night European security is the "basic question." It was understood Molotov wanted to take that up first. The Western ministers, on the other hand, decided that unification of Germany is the basic question. They were prepared to argue that until Germany is reunited there can be no real security in Europe. Some Western diplomats thought, however. Molotov would be governed by the more cordial spirit of East-West -elations to the extent that he would not make great issues of such problems as what 10 talk about first. Intimately Linked ( In that event the Big Pour may come to grips quickly with German unity and security Issues, which both sides concede are intimately linked. It is In this early stage of the conference that the West is scheduled to make its security offer to Molotov. The offer is designed to induce the Soviet government to agree to unification of Germany through free elections. A new German government would have the Three-Foot Rats On Display Here An exhibit of giant Jungle rats, three feet in length and weighing about 20 pounds, will be on display in front of Kirby's Drug at Second and Main Streets today, tomorrow and Saturday. Billed as the largest four-legged rats in the world, the exhibit is being sponsored by the Blytheville Junior Chamber of Commerce. No admission charge will be made, though a free-will contribution will be asked. The exhibit is shown in a truck where the two rats are kept in cages. A lecture explaining habits of the racs will be presented. They will also be fed for all viewers. The huge rodents have teeth 1'j inches long and have sealed throats and webbed feet which enable them to eat and live in water. They are native to certain South Pacific Islands and first became known during World War n. when they raidc'. American soldiers' food supplies. Grenade Wrecks Office ROME I.?)—A hand grenade hurled early today into the headquarters of the Communist-dominated Italian General Confederation ot I Labor shattered all windows of the building. One person was slightly injured. IKE right to choose membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Western European Union. The Western Big Three have considered offering Russia a variety of possible security guarantees against future German aggression. Some would be broad in scope and embrace many Western and Communist bloc countries. Informants said Dulles. Macmillan and Pinay settled as their first choice on an offer of guaran- tes to protect Russia and Germany's two Communist bloc neighbors, Poland and Czechoslovakia. The essence of the guarantee contemplated is that if a united Germany someday turned aggressive and attacked one of the three Eastern countries, the Western Powers would join In to crush the aggression. The proposal also Is Intended to counter a Russian proposal developed at the Big Four conference in Berlin 20 months ago for an all- European security pact to replace the present system of • Western alliances, a plan the West has rejected. (Continued from Page 1) Saturday. In his address, he estimated that perhaps 60 per cent of the legislative program the President set forth when he took office in 1953 has been completed. He plugged for election of Republicans to Congress next year. "... Do the American people svanl the policies that have brought us peace and prosperity continued?" he asked. "The alternative is an all powerful federal government ii control of our government. Let's remember the group who now control the Democratic party believe that the central government should run our lives, and not the people run the government." Conference Saturday Eisenhower will resume a series of Cabinet-level conferences Saturday when he meets at the hos- piial with Secretary -' Agriculture Benson for a discussion of farm legislation—and probably the politically hot issue of what to do about falling farm prices. On Monday the President will confer with Postmaster General Summerfield. Yesterday Eisenhower got his first look at newspapers since his Sept. '24 heart attack. Aides showed them to him so he could see the news photographs made of him the day before—the first closeups since his illness. "He thought they turned out alii right." said Press Secretary James C Hagerty. During the afternoon the President took six round-trip walks— l.alf dozen or so steps each way— between bed and an easy chair. That was by far the most walking he had done since the doctors permitted him to stand on his feet for the first time last Saturday.
