It was through the same square, lo a house still standing, that Abraham Lincoln walked one November day in 1863 before delivering the address which helped make the name of Gettysburg immortal. Two blocks off (he square, in a 40 \ ear-old post office, Eisenhower and key staff members will have temporary offices. Official business will be transacated therer ather than at the farm, which the Eisen- howers are trying to keep as their pci^onal residence. Eisenhower's doctors now say it will be late January—perhaps February—before they can give him a j May tail" opinion on whether he is well | enough to go after and carry out a :econd term if he wants one. up in a Ueltysburg hotel auditorium right on the square and dozens of reporters and photographers are flocking in to record the Chief Executive's gradual return to a full schedule of activities.

Polevoy said Grace Kelly told him: "I should very much like lo visit your country and the remarkable theaters of which I have heard so much good." Polevoy said the actor Gelrm Forrt said: "Write in your papers and tell them that the overwhelming major if of Americans are in favor of good relations between the U.S.A. and the Soviet Union." (Continued from Page 1) points of agreement. The meaning of this, diplomats said, is that neither side wants to break off contact and both apparently wish to avoid a return to the invective, bitterness and rigid hostilities of the worst days of the cold war. Struggle lo Continue But in the absence of any sub stantial progress here and in Cie light of Russia's bid for influence in the Middle ast the struggle itself was bound to go on The undecided question still was: In which arena will the struggle continue? The four shifted their attention today to the problem of expanding East-West contacts which the Westerners regard primarily as an exercise in punching holes in the Iron Curtain. So far their punching had resulted in more sore knuckles than holes. The frustrations -arose because improving East - West relations means quite different things to the Sovets and to the Western powers. This came out clearly in closed- floor negotiations conducted by a turmiiiltee of four-power experts. The committee found: 1. Russia wants the West to wipe out its embargo against the sale of the Communist bloc of a long- list of goods • which could increase the Soviet war potential. Russia also wants to end Nationalist China's declared blockade of the Formosa Strait. 2. The United States, Britain and France want Russia lo end jam- jning of Western broadcasts, permit circulation of Western publications, allow Western information centers in Moscow, and open its borders to Western airlines and tourists. The talks of the experts, like those of the foreign ministers on disarmament and on Germany. served only to show no-comprise attitudes on both sides. Egyptians Fire On Israeli Post Both Sides Charge Violations Along Disputed Gaza Strip JERUSALEM tf) — Egyptian outposts in the Gaza Strip opened fire today on an Israeli advance post in the kissufim area, an Israeli military .spokesman charged. The Israelis did not return the fire and no casualties were suffered, the spokesman added. Four border violations were charged yesterday by Israel and her Arab neighbors. An Israeli military spokesman said a patrol was fired on from an Egyptian position near Nahal Oz, an Israeli settlement opposite Egyptian-held Gaza. He said the patrol suffered casualties but did not return the fire. Violation Charged An Egyptian spokesman in Gaza said an Israeli coast guard launch violated Egyptian territorial waters on the coast of the Gaza strip. He said shore batteries opened fire and forced the. launch to withdraw. Israel charged Jordan with two incidents. An Israeli army spokesman said armed Jordanians attempted to! blow u pa house in Rosh Haayin j village, four miles west of the Jor-; dan border. He said some damage' resulted, but there were no casualties. Another Israeli spokesman said Jordan's soldiers entered Israeli territory in the "triangle 'area" farther north, looting- a herd of goats and kidnaping a shepherd. In Cairo, reliable sources said Egypt and Israel had disagreed on two points in the latest U. N proposals to ease tension along their- border. The two points involve. Israeli police in the El AUja demilitarized zone and the marking of the zone's borders. ARGENTINA (Continued from Page 1) Lonardi conferred at his home with some members of his ousted government.

Durkin resigned from the Eisenhower Cabinet Sept, 10. 1953 after serving seven months. He contended Eisenhower had violated a pledge to seek Taft-Hartley law changes which Durkin had recommended. The president replied that lie never had broken a promise to anyone. British Ship Bombed NICOSIA, Cyprus W> — A time bomb exploded under a British navy patrol boat in the drydock i at Famagusta early today. No one was injured but, the vessel was badliy damaged. ernment was caused exclusively by the presence in its center of numerous groups iniluential with Gen. Lonardi who direct their pol- j itics toward totalitarian extremes. ... These persons, and not others, tried to put the nation in a dangerous path, at whose end only a new dictatorship could be expected" In a statement after he was sworn in as president, Aramburu said: "Only one spirit promoted the movement of the resolution and that is the democratic senti-: ment of our people. . .
