French Foreign Minister Antoine Pinay and West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer announced in a joint communique yesterday they would tackle the problem in cooperation with the new Saar-government to be elected Dec. 18. They said the solution would be sought in the light of the referendum of Oct. 23 in which Saarland- ers voted two to one against "Ell- ropeanization" of their rich borderland. This anti-Europeanization vote is tow accepted by the French as showing clearly that the Saarland- ers want eventually to return to their German fatherland. Unity Is Goal The French and German governments, in seeking a new solution, hope to eliminate the coal and steel basin as a cause of friction in their goal toward European unity. Pinay had a three-hour talk with the 79-year-old Adenauer. It was the first major conference for the chancellor since he became ill on Oct. 7. No hint of the probable nature of the new solution was given. In the negotiations which led to the rearmament of West Germany in alliance with NATO. France and Germany agreed to, "Europeaniza- tion" of the Saar. A commissioner appointed by seven West European all'.es was to be placed over the Saar which would have its own internal government. France would retain its economic hegemony over the area in lieu of World War U reparations, and to balance her coal and steel production against. Germany's in the European coal and steel pool.

The Western powers were reported divided on these lines: 1.

At first he strongly objected to including Albania, but finally gave way on that point. Britain Favors Five Speak ing of Outer Mongolia. however, one American informant said "how can they expect us to accept as qualified for U.N. membership a country which doesn't seem to have an ambassador in Moscow?" 2. Britain is willing to accept all five of the Soviet candidates. 3. France considers the whole deal should be put on the shelf as long as the Algerian item is still on the U.N.

The FBI announced he is John Gilbert Graham, 23, married and, the father of two small children. Agents said Graham took out an air flight insurance policy ior 537,500 on his mother, Mrs. Daisy King, at the Denver airport shortly before she boarded the plane on her way to Alaska. The plane crashed in a sugar beet field 32 miles north of Denver the night of Nov. 1. Killing all 44 aboard. Witnesses said the plane exploded. Graham's arraignment before a U.S. commissioner was ordered. The FBI said a 3100,000 bond would be recommended. Helped Mother Graham's most recent 'job was helping his mother operate . ,a. drive-in restaurant in Denver. Webb W. Burkee, FBI special agent-in-charge here, and other E gents declined to comment beyond the official statement of Granam's arrest. No details were available immediately as to what caused the DCGB plane to disintegrate at about nn 11,000-foot altitude east of Longmont, Colo. However, it was learned that Graham has been a. construction worker and became familiar with handling dynamite. It also was reported authoritatively that he would be in line for a one-fourth share of his mother's estate, valued at nn estimated S150.000, in the event of her death. At Washington, FBI Director J. d?ar Hoover said Graham would be charged with violation of a section of the federal code which makes it a crime to sabotage a national defense facility or materials.
