Run-off elections will be held next Sunday, May 3, in races where no candidate got a clear majority. In the early figures, candidates of Do Gaulle's Rally of the French People (RPF) were getting only about 11 per cent of the vote in Paris and the same percentage in the suburbs. The Communists were getting 25.8 per cent of the vote in the capital and 41 per cent in its suburbs but Interior Minister Charles Brune said early today the Reds seemed to be losing ground slightly over the country. The election turnout was heavy, about 72 per cent of the country's 25 million registered voters. First Victory In 1947 De Gaulle's RPF scored its first major ballot box victory in the last municipal elections, in 1347. Since then it has run neck and neck with the Communists, each getting about 27 per cent of succeeding ballots to make them France's two biggest single parties. Brune said the Independents, led by former Premier Antoine Pinay, and the Radicals of Premier Rene Mayer appeared to have benefitted chiefly from the Gaullist setback. De Gaulle, himself, has been less active than usual in the RPF recently and did not make a single campaign speech for the local elections. Another big factor appeared to be the split in the party last July, when a number of RPF deputies molted the general's instructions to oppose then-Premier Finay's efforts to balance the budget by strict economy. .^U.^^— »~l^»^^ ••II, • Mil _^* ^ •f ' «WI'H»II ""Ill, • II - > " i -K^ i> * ^ K * ¥ w» v \ \ • if. m i ?_a; \; i ,.. tfuSif r ;;j||K,j 1 Barkeep Sleeps, Robber Prospers TULSA, Okla. f/P}~The .bartender of a small beer tavern slept severely through a $272 burglary, police reported.

"PONY EXPRESS" Filmed In Technicolor Starring Carlton Heston Slavs Draft New Laws on Religion BELGRADE, Yugoslavia UP)—Yugoslavia's powerful Federal Executive Council has drafted a new law spelling out the limits of religious freedom under President Marshal Tito's Communist regime. The law—published yesterday and certain of parliamentary approval later this year—reaffirms tthe Yugoslav Constitution's basic guaian- tee of freedom of worship. However, it rejects recent demands of the Roman Catholic church, including those for religious instruction in public schools and unrestricted circulation of church papers. The new, law calls specifically for a separation of schools from religious instruction and puts religious literature under the general laws governing the press, tthus allowing government control over ,v.ale- rial considered hostile to the administration. The law declares as a basic principle that all religions are equai and bans discrimination against individuals on the basis of religious conviction. It permits religious schools to train future clergymen and allows the clergy to hold services on church grounds, form their own organizations and collect money for expenses.

For that, Bishop O'Gara of Ottawa spent a week of round-hhe- clock questioning in a Red China "house for reformation." Freed, the n iling bishop today told in a hospital how that terse thought sent his captors into a frenzy.

Purdue?" "Don't hold anything back!" The bishop, ill from a bladder infection and months of imprisonment, protested feebly—N. D. was only a university called Notre Dame which was defeated in a game called football by another university called Purdue. 'That's a lie," said the angry questioner. "All you tell is lies. You had better tell the truth. "Now—who is this bandit, N. D.?" For a week they haggled to a stalemate — the Communist never was convinced.

Selected Shorts by Felix Carney One of the reasons w h y color television won't be around for a while yet in general use is the problem of developing a system which will require a minimum of space on the TV "spectrum" so that more stations will be able to broadcast. In order to produce a TV image in color, three different signals must be used — one to transmit the scene brightness, another to send the degree of color saturation, and the third 10 record the actual hue or color. And then, in order to keep the color system compatible with our present black - and - white, a "subcar- rier" has to he introduced to enable the image without color to ride "piggy-back" on the other one. About as clear as a hip: spoonful of m u d, isn't if 1 ! What it adds up to is this: at present, only a vtry few stations could send color. There just isn't room for all those signals . . . but the problem will be whipped eventually. From Hollywood comes the report that Shirley Temple will have her own TV show, if lii-r husband permits. Then there's the report of a sign pinned on the CBS bulletin board in the television city: "Slightly used 10-inch TV set for sale. Call ST-9000 and ask for Squinty!"

Moont. «h - Volunteers by the score spent the night in Hissed mountains near here before resuming their search today for an U-yenr-old Boy Scout missing since Saturday night. Success, which .seemed just over the hill for a time, literally was washed out last night. Showers blotted out a trail which a bloodhound had followed through these foothills of the Rockies for 12 tortuous miles. Relatives and sheriff's officers held hope that frail, thin Jerry Monkman is still alive. He was dressed warmly. The weather has been warm for the area-above freezing at night. But it has been cloudy and damp — Ill-suited to Jerry's asthmatic condition. The boy went with other Scouts Saturday for an overnight camping trip. He wandered away from their campsite at the edge of Teton Canyon, joined a second Scout group for a while, then disappeared.

IffJ— Saying another farewell to the United Nations he served for seven years as secretary Kcncval. Trygve Lie argued yesterday that negotiated compromises could bring world peace. .There can oe no settlement in the Par East, he declared, unless Communist China "is a party to it," Nor can "unconditional surrender" bring real peace in Korea. Lie spoke in a recorded message broadcast over the world in honor of the eighth anniversary of the United Nations' founding in San Francisco. A Korean armistice, he said, would be a great victory for collective security under the U. N. but "real peace and freedom for Korea . . . may be a long time in coming." "It is not possible to foresee u Korean settlement except in relation to other Far East issues ajid there can be no setllemcnt unless the People's Republic of China is a party to it," he asserted. Lie said the U. N. would have to maintain military strength to "discourage any more attempts at armed aggression," but that it also would have to "face the realities." "You cannot negotiate a tru« settlement on the theory of unconditional sui'vender." he said. "International politics are the art of the possible and practical. You have to make compromises that in the long run will serve the principles for which you stand. "As in Korea, so with Germany and Austria and all the other issues of the cold war, that must in time end either in mutual disaster or be resolved by negotiated settlements."
