Police Seeking Automobile Thief State police are .still seeking an unidentified man who is alleged to have stolen a 1,95.0 Oldsmobile from in front of Mox Theater on West Main Street about 7:45 p.m. Sunday. The car, belonging to a Memphis man, was found wrecked about two miles north of Blytheville on US Highway 61 about 8 p.m., Sunday. according to Trooper Ben Gavins, who investigated the accident. Gavins snid the car owner admitted leaving the keys in the car when he parked it near the theater. The owner missed the car later Sunday night. Cavins,reported the wrecked car a total loss. He figured the accident occurred when the gctawiiy car, traveling at a high rale of speed, was driven off the road by the escapee rather than hit a slow-moving car from the roar. Several people n<*:ir the scene of the mishap reported seeing a man who might have boon the driver. hut none could offer more of a description other than to say the man was "about six foci Ull."

A main key investigated is how many children reported to have polio at first diagnosis actually did have this disease, or were actually paralyzed, whether vaccinated or not, the report said. In some states, like New York, making intensive studies to determine actual incidence of paralytic polio, vaccinated children appeared to have a 5-to-i better chance—or 80 per cent—of escaping paralytic polio, Dr. Langmuir said. In others making lesr intensive checks, as Georgia, the vaccinated children seemed to have a 2-to- 1 or 50 per cent better chance ofj not having paralytic polio. ' (Continued from Page W alliances. I*ist Session Tomorrow The last session is scheduled for tomorrow. U. S. Secretary of State Dulles, speaking for the three Western ir.inisters, declared the isolation of the Soviet peoples from outside ideas, and influences is "in our opinion a very dangerous condition." He said Molotov's proposals, allegedly to broaden East-West re- lanonships. would in fact "perpetuate what we deem to be a verv great danger to peace and to cood understanding among peoples". Meanwhile Western officials are milking a play, without much hope of success, for the abandonment bv Russia of her sales of discarded World War II equipment to trouble spots of the world. Dulles focused public attention on the subject yesterday after :.w:ce being brushed off in private by Molotov. By bringing the issue into the open he gave expression to fears that Moscow by its arms export policy may fan many small wars and local antagonisms over the world, making more trouble for the Western Powers. "The Soviet Union," Dulles said, "apparently ai the present time does have large stockpiles of discarded arms resulting from the production of new models for the Soviet's own use. "Matter of Concern" "It will be a matter of utmost concern to other nations of the world if the Soviet bloc should try to meet its large import needs and serve its other aims by exporting these surplus arms throughout the world." The reference to imports was the tie by which Dulles was able to introduce the arms problem logically into yesterday's meeting, which was concerned with thej problem of broadening East-West contacts in the fields of trade, travel and information. Molotov ignored the thrust. His treatment of the question of increasing East-West contacts showed that once more—as in ear her discussions here on German; and disarmament — the West i up against a stone wall. Western proposals that Russi: stop jamming foreign radi broadcasts, open its borders t foreign travel and publications arid make it easier for foreign '"is inessmen to do business in the So viet Union were all rejected b; Molotov as "interference" viet affairs.
