LONDON (AP) — The U. the latest in the series of U. S. of war in the atomic age. Harold Stassen proposed that nations joining in a disarmament pact should give advance notice if they send armed men outside their borders, 'Stassen, President Eisenhower's specialist on disarmament, is meeting with representatives of Russia, Britain, Prance and Canada as a subcommittee on the U. N. Disarmament Commission.

McKinney said he had presided at a March 4 meeting in Denver, at which people from some 14 states were represented. "It was a conference solely iu the interests of Gov. Harriman," McKinney said. "Now, there has been talk in the papers that this ..-as somewhat tied up with stopping Stevenson in Minnesota. That is not true." Wants Movement Spiked McKinney said also that former President Truman, a personal friend, asked him several weeks ago to "spike . . . any movement for me for president." He quoted Truman as saying he would not be a candidate under any circumstances. In Washington, Symington said, "I am not a candidate," and expressed himself as "humbly grateful for the confidence expressed in me" by the Missouri Democratic committee. Kefauver made several appearances in the Los Angeles area yesterday, but described several of them as nonpolitical. As for his chances in the state's primary, he said, "it is an uphill pull, but it is going good now." Sen. Hubert Humphrey of Minn esota rapped the Eisenhower administration at a Los Angeles meeting arranged by Stevenson '•backers. He said the Eisenhower "team is falling apart" and "the .only way you're going to get a good team to run this government is to ge a new coach." The New York Times spoke today of a possibility of a move to draft Truman for the Democratic presidential nomination. A Washington dispatch to the Times said the Stevenson-Ket'auv- er fight has led to "genuine talk of possible dark horses." "Indeed," the story said, "there is now serious consideration, mostly in Northern Democratic quarters, but among some Southern professionals as well, of the pos sibillty of attempting in certain eventualitities to draft former President Truman." N. atomic powers today studied proposal's to reduce the threat surprise attack and thus reduce the danger of war. Andrei A. Gromyko, a deputy foreign minister and head of the Soviet teams, gave no hint of the Russian reaction. Previously at the current series of meetings" the United States had suggested the setting up of test inspection areas in the United States and Russia, an exchange of technical missions and a 214 million-man limit to the armed forces of the United States and the Soviet Union. In Municipal Court Buddy Spain forfeited $111.76 on a charge of drunk driving in Municipal Court today. Harold Reed, of Osceola, forfeited $36.75 bond on a charge of failure to yield the right of way. An alias warrant was issued for his appearance, however, when the complaining witness asked that he be brought to court. A collision of two cars was involved.

Kluckhohn drew a one to two-year centence yesterday in the slaying of a woman shopper behind a hotel in Raleigh. Kluckhohn, 21, pleaded nolo con- tendere (no contest) to a charge of involuntary manslaughter. Last June he was sentenced to 5- to-10 years after a jury convicted him of a similar charge in the May 13 pistol shooting of Miss Bernlce Seawell, 43, of Arlington, Va. He appealed to toe State Supreme Court. Which granted him a new trial because the judge's charge to the jury was faulty. Miss Seawell was waiting for a parking lot attendant to deliver her car during a rainy day when she was felled by a bullet. Kluckhohn, who described the shooting as a "horrible accident," acknowledged that his German Luger pistol had discharged while he was in a hotel room, but said he did not knpw it had hit anyone. Kluckhohn Was in this area as a U.N. representative of a publishing firm. His parents. Dr. and Mrs. Clyde K. Maben Kluckhohn, are on the Harvard University faculty. Judge Hamilton Hobgood of Wake Superior Court could have sentenced Kluckhohn to a maximum ol 20 years in prison.

(Continued from Page 1) along Israel's frontiers with the Arab states. The United States had hoped he could leave next Monday. Britain, Prance and Australia spoke in full support of the U.S. proposal, Belgium, Iran and Peru supported it in principle. But those three, the Soviet Union, .Yugoslavia and Cuba said they wanted to hear from Israel and the Arab countries before taking a definite stand. To Meet Tomorrow The council finally agreed to meet tomorrow and again next Tuesday. Soviet Delegate Arkady A. Sob- olev told reporters he would decide his position on the U.S. plan only after he had listened to the Arab and Israeli delegates. But he said he had no proposals of his own to make. As the council argued, new violence was reported from the Israeli-Arab frontier. An Israeli military spokesman accused Egyptian forces of starting a three-hour border gunfight in the El Auja (Nizana) area of the southern Negev. No Israeli casualties were reported. Korean Officer Kills US Gl SEOUL. South Korea (If) —The 8th Army announced today that South Korean lieutenant accidentally shot and killed an American sergeant in a drunken argument.

Cooley appeared somewhat less optimistic about finishing the bill in conference tomorrow. Cooley predicted the compromise version would include a one- Steele Band Gets Nod from Judge 'Nice stage appearance, good uniformity, general color of band is very good, good balance.

Parity is a standard fixed by iaw and said to be fair to farmers in relation to their costs. The Eisenhower administration strongly supports a flexible system in which price supports on these basic crops vary with the size of stocks on hand. Such a system was enacted in 1954. The House bill would scrap it. The Senate version would retain the theory of flexibility, while adding features to restrict it. Sen. Aiken (K-Vt), senior OOP to include 90 per cent supports said he expects the compromise senator on the conference group, "for one year or more." He said Eisenhower may well veto such a bill. souri Band Festival In Hayti. He complimented the fast-rising Steele band, which is under the direction of Glen A. McCool.
