The Tennessee senator interrupted a swing through New Hampshire to personally challenge Stevenson in Minnesota. The stake is 30 delegates to the Democratic National Convention. There were reports that Kefauv er is really to attack Stevenson's record as Illinois governor in the period before he accepted the De- moci^itic presidential nomination in 1952. Until now the two rivals have confined their oratory in this state to assaults 2n the Eisenhower administration. For the moment at least their paths will not cross. Stevenson is finishing a five-day Minnesota tour wirh-visits to—Iratr a dozen- communities in the northwestern part ot the state. In Twin Cities Kefauver, who for weeks was undecided whether to buck the Minnesota Democratic organization which has endorsed Stevenson, concentrates today in the Twin Cities before heading south to Winona. The state primary March - 20 is th efirst in the nation for which both are campaigning seriously A delegation has been pledged to tevenson in New Hampshire but he has not campaigned there He said in a statement yesterdaj he had "assumed that Kefauve would win all eight delegates there " Kefauver's backers are con vinced that a strong Minnesota showing for their candidate, even without victory, might cripple o at least damage tevenson's bi for the Democratic nomination. Facing Handicaps On his initial tour of the state two weeks ago, Kefauver acknowledged that he was facing a "lot of handicaps." Stevenson, among other things, has the state party's Central Committee endorsement, the backing of a number of influential labor leaders and the powerful support of Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn) and Gov. Orville Freeman. Yet K e f a u v e T said he was "greatly encouraged" at response to his appearance -n southern Minnesota areas where he barnstormed two weeks ago. He was avoided arousing the hostility of Humphrey. »nd Freeman supporters and frequently made « point of declaring his "admiration" for Humphrey. PROBE Gladys B.

Eden, smarting under' King Hussein's abrupt ouster of Glubb as commander of Jordan's crack Arab , Legion, tola the House earlier he was recalling 15 senior officers who had helped Glubb lorge the desert army Into the best-trained Arab military force Glubb was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in a gesture underscoring British displeasure over Jordan's action. Only 50 The withdrawal of top officers left only about 50 junior British officers in the Jordan army that Britain helped create and still supports to the tune of some 22 million dollars a year. Eden said the future of the less- officers—who are under contract to Jordan—would be discussed at the Jordanian capital of Amman. He refused to tell the House of Commons whether Britain would cut oft its military subsidy.

S policy in Asia, pointing toward American membership in the Co lombo Plan for economic develop ment and his government's bilateral agreements for economic aid, technical assistance and cultural exchanges. "In contrast," he continued, "stands the policy of the Soviet- Chinese Communists. Whenever they could, they swallowed their neighbors or subjugated them. "They have annexed territory comprising all or part of 10 states and also made 10 states into virtual colonies ruled by International communism. . . "That aggressive policy explains why the free nations have developed collective security arrangements such as that which brings us here." Commons reacted angrily to ths twin setbacks of the Eden government's reverses in Jordan and its failure to solve the seething Cyprus issue Labor party leaders Hugh Galt- skell and Herbert Morrison called the developments a major setback and part of the "growing collapse" of Eden policy. Right - wing Conservatives urged Eden to meet the Middle East reverses with firmness and to reassert British interests. The Laborites pressed for early debate on the entire Middle East situation. Ince 1948 Britain has lost its military hold on Palestine, Esypt, Iraq (except for the thin Baghdad Pact tie), the Sudan and now Jordan. Plane Downed i The fresh Israeli border outbreaks underlined the tense situation In the Middle East. Syrian gunfire shot down an Israeli plane in the Sea of Galilee region.

Israel said the -jerdanians-were- driven out of Israel territory. An Israeli spokesman said gun lire blocked two Egyptian effort to cross into Israel territory in the Sinai sector and Gaza Strip. Weighing the developments of the past few days, the British Foreign Office was reported converted to the viewpoint that the Arabs instead of the Israelis were the main threat of aggression in the Middle East. The viewpoint coulc bring a change in British opposi tion to selling arms to Israel.
