INTEGRATION • (Continued fr-jm Page 1) can to mitigate this situation." The manifesto was signed by lour Republicans, Representative? Jonas of North Carolina, Cramer of Florida and Poff and Broyhill of Virginia. But not all Southern Democrats were for it. Rep. Chatham (D-NC) said he thinks the resolution "may do more harm than good." "I've been raised to believe the Supreme Court is the final law of the land," he said. "There is too much passion and prejudicn and this will fan that." A side controversy developed last night when Rep. Bass (D Tenn), a signer of the manifesto said it was his impression fron> cloakroom talk that the documen' was "designed to re-elect Sen George." Bass attributed a simil ar point of view to Russell, bul Russell said later: "I never made any such statement." George was not immediately available for comment. A veteran of more than 33 years In the Senate, George may run into stiff primary opposition this yenr. Former Gov. Herman Talmadge Is expected to be his opponent. Talmadge is an outspoken advocate of racial segregation. interviewed "believe that in end any regional reconstruction of race relations will have to be hammered out across the table in thousands of scattered school districts." Results of the Times survey were published in a special eight- page section under the heading "Report on the South: The Integration Issue." The newspaper said 10 of its staff correspondents traveled thousands of miles and talked to hundreds of persons during its five-week survey. Besides a general summation of its findings, the Times offered separate surveys of 17 states and the District of Columbia. It catalogued the areas as follows: Integrating — District of Columbia, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Oklahoma and West Virginia. Divided or delaying — Arkansas, Delaware, Florida , Louisiana, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. Resisting — Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina and Virginia. In its summary, the Times says: "As the South considers entering a new era of race relations, the dominant attitude of the white population is against any change. The reactions range from resignation to defiance. As a consequence, the cause of racial understanding has . suifered a setback in the Deep South—Georgia, South Carolina, Mississippi and Alabama- where the Negro population is the highest." The Times said in its lead editorial today that its reporters in the survey "were not sent out to pass judgment on the merits of the case. ' "They were sent out to find and report the facts," the editorial said. "They were not sent out to produce sensational accounts of strife and terror; they were sent out to observe, and "earn and describe what they saw. "A great deal of their report on ihe South is encouraging to those of us—surely the o verwhelming majority of Americans—who believe that the Supreme Court's decision (on school desegregation) was as right as it was inevitable. Even in some of the most diehard states the ultimate victory of educational integration is fore- Jen." The editorial concluded: "Social revolutions aren't made in a day. Patience, restraint and moderation are required on both sides—as much in New York as n Alabama. "The white supremacists are doomed; and their doom will come about with greater speed if the extremists on the other side learn to curb themselves. If they don't, resistance will only be stiffened, and the cause of decent racial relations in the Deep South set back for many years." ALGERIA (Continued from Page M Paris for the frant of power, was expected to rush back to Algeria as soon as the Senate acts and then to launch an all-out effort to end the rebellion. He is expected to proclaim a state of siege over much of the Algerian countryside and set up centers of protection for isolated French farmers living in terror of rebel raids. The bill gives Lacoste the right to censor the Algerian press and radio. To Restore Order Mollet's announced aim is to restore order as a prelude to Algerian elections which would designate a leadership empowered to negotiate an Improved status for Algeria. The rebel ranks were swelled by a spreading wave of desertions among Algerian troops who had been counted with Prance's toughest and most loyal fighters. The French have announced no totals. In Rabat, Morocco, 114 Algerian—riflemen deserted from a unit en route to West Germany. Seventy-f i v e riflemen deserted Thursday in eastern Algeria, shooting down eight French soldiers. The rebels continued active in widespread sections, ambushing military trucks, shooting French soldiers and harassing French civilians. FARM (Continued from Page 1) lost on a 56-36 roll call. Williams agreed to boost his price support limit to $50,000, a figure suggested by Sen. Watkins (R-Utah) and others. Sen. Russell (D-Ga) then suggested this be upped to $100,000. Russell, Bllender and other senators contended small farmers would be hurt most by a low ceiling. They argued that big operators, including corporation farms, might refuse to follow planting limits and dump heavy production on the markets if they could not qualify for price supports. Sen. Jenner (R-Ind), by a 84-9 vote, won acceptance of the S25.- 000 top limit on soil bank payments on one farm in any one state. Russell's $100,000 limit won approval on a voice vote and the revised Williams-Jenner proposal then was nailed into the bill 78-11. CYPRUS (Continued'from Page 1) what the other fellow did. British troop installations in Nicosia were the target of two bomb attacks last night but no injuries were reported.

The latter headed a pro- Communist government for two years until supplanted by the pro- Western Moslem Masjurni party last August.

Therefore, if only a few of his delegate candidates should win, his New Hampshire lieutenants will proclaim .a victory. They would raise the cry it three or four of the 12 are elected, ob servers believe. While Stevenson and Kefauver are represented by a full slate of delegate candidates, individual candidates are running as favorable to Gov. Harriman and Gov. G. Mermen Williams of Michigan. On the Republican ballot, seven delegate candidates are running as favorable to Sen. Knowland of California, in opposition to Eisenhower candidates. Expects to Win Kefauver said he expects,to win "better than a majority .of the delegates—I would consider that quite a victory." In an llth-hpur televised speech last night, he expressed regret that Stevenson did not officially come into the New Hampshire primary. "Mr. Stevenson chose not to make a contest in this race in New Hampshire," he said. He also attacked the record of the Eisenhower administration on three principal counts—foreign policy, small business and the farmer. "I think the failure of the Eisenhower administration to come to grips with the problems of a world in continual crisis is too dangerous to be permitted to last a day longer than necessary," he said. A setback for Kefauver in this psychologically important, primary could seriously damage his chances for the Democratic nomination. As for Stevenson, he has little to lose if none of his supporters are elected. CHURCHMEN (Continued from Page 1) Peace Council and align themselves with petitions for an . unconditional ban, as proposed by Soviet leaders, on atomic and thermonuclear weapons. The conversations, the first such talks between American and Russian churchmen in at least 50 years, are likely to return to that thesis again and again, despite any formal agenda agreement. Patriarch Alexei and an interpreter were the only Russians present. Dr. Blake told the patriarch: Church Mission "Our mission to you is a church mission. It is not a subsidiary supplement otnal tadoly. mn paoilcWe come without any instructions from our government. We are under no obligation to report to any government upon our return.
