It originally became' public knowledge in 1930. Republican and Democratic leaders today faced the question— was Ives' speech a bombshell or a dud? Hnrriman. former New Deal and "Pair Deal" diplomat and sccre- lary of commerce, accused Ives of a "baseless" attack in a 'desperate effort to bolster a faltering campaign," and said he believes the people will resent it. Ives' speech received unusual attention because of a double-action buildup.

Lloyd, co-author of a British- French proposal used as a basis for the discussions, speaks before the 60-nation Political Committee. He was expected to echo the sleep- ticnl tone voiced yesterday by U.S. [Delegate James Wadsworlh, who said nuTicans "suspect the So- voiet Union of planning world conquest behind their facade of disarmament statements." Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister ndrei Y. Vishinsky has held the recent spotlight in the debate with speeches which the Soviet bloc termed conciliatory. The disarmament debate re- .sinned in the wake of a double setback tor dogged Russian attempts to air aggression charges against the United States. Her haggling lor nearly three hours, the U.N. Steering Committee voted 12-2 last night to postpone for two weeks a debate on whether Soviet accusations of U.S. air and sou activity around Formosa anil tho China Sea should be put on the agenda. j It voted 7-5. with two ab- j Mentions, to hold oil debute for a similar period on Soviet charges jihiu NiuumultM China—Hbcued by j the United SlaU's—was waging pi- ratU-al altiirks on shipping bound I lor Ihe Ciuninunist Chinese main- i laud. • Til? vine came alter Britain mid Kraiu'p appealed to Vishinsky not j 10 cloud up Ihe rii,si\rmameni dis- , mission by dragging in the Furmo- sii issue.

Tammany backed Harriman for the Democratic nomination for governor against Rep. Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr., who later was nominated for attorney general. Tves said the shipping line obtained leases on two city-owned piers through payments to Vause. For four yeans, he said, the ••secret seemed to be safe" and "'iverything was happy until the spring of 1930, when the scandal broke loose." Charges This was uncovered, he said, during- investigation of Vause's fi- nanvs in another case. Ives said the judge ran a financial company on the side and was sentenced to six years in prison for swindling hundreds of poor people. There was no implication of Harriman being involved in this. Ives .said enormous sums of money were found in a bank account iii the name of a clerk in Vause's office and that R. H. M. Robinson, president of the steamship line, admitted knowing that Vause had been paid to get the leases. "Now what did Harnman have lo say aboyt all this?" asked Ives.

The French were reported to have olfered a broad, far-reaching , economic accord with 'Vest Ger- many'that would reduce the Saar j problem to a relatively minor position. Adenauer and Menrieji-France also discussed Ihe joint financing of big industrial projects, which may include aircralt factories In Morocco. On the general idea of undertaking- the production of arms in partnership, they agreed lo lake no action unless the other members of the West European Union agree. In addition to West Germany and France, members of the proposed alliance are Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. A German spokesman predicted an agreement on the Saar would be reached by Ihe end of the week, at least on general principles. The Saar, a small coal-rich area wedged between France and Germany, now has its own regime and is linked (o Fiance with an economic union. It was German before Worlci War II and the Germans consider the area still part ol Germany. Under the proposals lor placing Ihe loreign aliairs of the Saar under the West European Union, the Saarlanders would keep their local autonomy and the French would retain their economic lies. 2 Air Guardsmen Killed GRANVILLF., Mans.
