WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower says that, despite the East-West stalemate at the Geneva foreign minis- tpi-o'cnnfprpncp. llm United Slates "will never admit defeat" In Morocco ters conference, the United States "will never admit defeat' in seeking a "just and durable peace." — __ —*> xhe president's view was relayed by Secretary of State Dulles • ft M I at the end of a sober, 30-minute Affl/lPlf Afirtn TV-radio report '-ist night on the MI III I V fVlUU Geneva mectlni iJ I Dulles conceded the Western Big Three made no progress in the sessions with the Russians. But this assessment was balanced, in at least, by the secretary's expressions of cautious optimism and by a statement from Eisenhower. Reading from what he called "verbatim notes" made during a conversation v/ith Eisenhower earlier in the day at Gettysburg, Pa. Dulles quoted the President as saying: "I know that no setback, no obstacle to progress will ever deter this government and our people from the great effort to establish a just and durable peace. "May Be Long in Coming" "Success may be long in coming, but there is no temporal force so capable of helping achieve it the strength, the might, the spirit i of 165 million free Americans. In' striving toward this shinine goal. this country will never admit -defeat." Dulles snid his three weeks at Geneva "didn't get us anywhere! at all." I But he srid the "Spirit of Geneva," flowing from the summit By CAUL IIARTMAN RABAT, French Morocco (AP) ~ While Sultan Sidi Mohammed Ben Youssel held consultations today in his palace aimed at restoring peace to Morocco, an angry mob trampled to death a caliph and two other persons in the palace courtyard. The slain caliph, an assistant to the Pasha of Fez. Was Taieb el Baghdad. He was known as a former sympathizer of Mohammed Ben Moulay Arafa, the man who replaced Youssef during his two years of exile, which ended this week. Arafa now is livini tirement in Tangier. French reports said the caliph drew a pistol and n dagger after he was attacked but the crowd jumped on him, stabbing him and then trampling: him to death. Fighting became general in the AS CHICKS SPLASH TO VICTORY — Sophomore halfback Ed Moore picked up half a dozen yards through the mud last night as Blytheville knocked off an El Dorado team in a 14-6 game. Before game, El Dorado was state's fourth-ranked team, the Chicks being No. 5.

When the muddy waters of "Lake Haley" had subsided from turbulent waves to a smooth glassy surface and the drizzling rain had shrouded the empty stands in the bleak darkness the Chickasaws of Blytheville High School had once again showered themselves with glory with a 14-6 victory over the Wildcats of El Dorado. Coach Russell Mosley, choked ^ —— . — — •• .m with emotion, said, "it was the greatest team effort I've ever seen." And everyone who heard him agreed . . . wholhear&edly. Splendid Defense In a contest between the two teams noted far and wide for their offensive prowess, it was the defense that shone the brightest in Chicks' | filial game of the season. To pick the stars of the game you have to start with the middle of i he line and go right down through the lineup of the entire team. The trio of sophomore Slick Nelson, and juniors Jodie Hall and Bo Huffman played their greatest, !;ame of the year in the middle of the Chicks' defensive line. These three led the entire Chick team in the tremendous fourth quarter goal line stand that just about iced the victry for Blytheville.

Dulles wound up his report, which Eisenhower helped draft, by quoting the President as personally pledging; "no setback, no "-Vta- cle" will deter the U. S. search for real peace. Won't Admit Defeat "In striving toward this goal." he quoted Eisenhower as tellin him, "this country will never admit defent." Dulles blamed the Russians for failure of the foreign ministers to reach agreement on a single one of the issues which had been defined by Eisenhower and the premiers of Russia, Britain and France last July. "They are not yet willing to create the indispensable conditions for a secure pence." he said. "Also they have .seriously set back the growth 01 any confidence the free world can justifiably place in Soviet promises." Dulles said the reason the Russians pulled back on their promise t work toward German unity, disarmament and broader East- West contacts was that they fcured "serious repercussions" within the Communist bloc.
