BLTTHimLLl (ARK.) COURIER XEWSI IATOBDAT, MARCH », Congress May Act To Curb Russian Trade, Solon Says By G. MILTON KELLY WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Jackson (D-Wash) said today Congress may try to discourage Western trade with Russia by writing some "mandatory controls" into foreign aid legislation. Obituary the Eisenhower administration is asking Congress to authorize approximately five billion dollars to continue the foreign aid program in the 'fiscal year starting July 1. Jackson serves Senate Investigations subcommittee which is exploring this country's role in the 1954 easing of curbs on East-West trade. To Call Dulles Chairman McClellan (D-Ark) announced the subcommittee will invite Secretary of State Dulles to appear before it in a further effort to get details and documents relating to the relaxed controls. The administration so far has refused to disclose this information publicly. Dulles, now ir. the Far East, is not expected back until late in the month. Harold E. Stassen, President Eisenhower's special assistant on disarmament problems, testified yesterday it would "serve the enemy" to disclose publicly the scope of the Western allies' agreement to relax controls. Stassen was foreign aid chief at the time. CYPRUS (Continued from Pa«« » to fipd more conclusive evidence to the archbishopric files that Makarios is toe real leader of •the terrorists," a British official said. . New outbreaks seemed certain to sweep Cyprus, for months an inferno of bombing, sniping and sabotage.' Scores have died and hundreds have been wounded. Britain has 60,000 troops stationed on the island, its last bastion in the MWdie East. Marfcarios was seized as he prepared to board a plane for Athens, where he has to confer with the Greek government. The British also seized Bishop Kyriyakides of Kyrenia,, the Rev. Papastravos FapaaganthangeloH of Nicosia and Polycarpos loannaides, secretary of the Kyrenia bishopric. The British government has called Kyriakides the head of the "most fanatical and extreme wing of. the Enosis—union with Greece —movement." It identifies Papaa- ganthangelou as "one of the main instigators of riotous demonstrations by schoolboys in Nicosia" last summer. loannides has been quoted in newspapers as saying "It is onty by revolution that an enslaved nation regains its freedom . . . political assassination is not murder." News Ban . The governor's office named a press and radio censor and banned publication on Cyprus of any news "likely to cause alarm or de spondency, or be prejudicial to public safety or maintenance of public order." Greece's recall of its ambas sador to London followed an emer gency meeting of Premier Con stantine Karamanlis' Cabinet Foreign Minister Spyros Theotokis said Greece also had Instructec its U.N. delegation to protest to Secretary General Dag Ham marskjold. Five months of secret British negotiations with Mafcarios ove the future of Cyprus eollapsec only last Monday Britian said i had offered self-government within the commonwealth, with defense and internal security remaining in British hands. It said Mnkarios had held out for amnesty for al political offenders including con victed murderers of British sol diers, absolute Cypriot control of internal security and a written guarantee that hte Greek-speaking majority would control the Legis lature. I Makarios was leader of the 400,000 Greek-s peaking Cypriote. There is a minority of about 100.000 if Turkish descent which opposes his aims. He directed the U. S. negotiating team. Secretary of Commerce Weeks also declined to give such information publicly. "No Alternative" Stassen insisted the United States had "no alternative" than to agree to an expansion of the list of items which trade-hungry Western allies could sell to the Reds. Otherwise, he .said, the whole voluntary international control program might have collapsed. By averting this, • Stassen contended, the U. S. scored "a net advantage." McClellan told newsmen he would not dispute" Stassen's testimony that this country struck the best bargain it could at Paris But he said he believes the U. S. negotiators may have gone into the talks "prepared to. yield." Jackson said in an interview he believes Congress may "slap some mandatory conditions" involving Western trade with Russia into any foreign aid appropriations.

The Rorex order marked the second time that Pulaski Chancery Court has intervened in the case. Last week, Judge Rorex issued a temporary restraining order against granting of an operating permit to Southland. On an appeal by Gentry, the Arkansas Supreme Court dismissed that directive. Gentry's action in this instance, which he never has explained, knocked out a prop which the commission might have used to refrain from granting the permit. With the Rorex order dissolved, the commission had no alternative but to comply with a previous order fay Crittenden Chancellor W Leon. Smith to grant the franchise.
