Humphrey said he. couldn't anticipate whether President Eisenhower will suggest abandoning the cuts. But hi.s comlnents encouraged the belief that the nd- mlnlstrnlinn will oppose any tax decreases next year. Sparkman, Democratic vice liresitlcntinl nominee in 1952, Slvld in an inlerview: "It Is no to me that they can't balance the budget.

His likely successor Is Ichiro Hatoyama, a conservative pro- American, as is Yoshida. UnliHe Yoshida. however, Hatoyama favors diplomatic relations and increased trade with Russia and Red China within a framework of friendship with the West. The Diet (Parliament) will vote tomorrow or Thursday on a new leader. Yoshida and his Cabinet resigned just hours before the Diet almost certainly would have toppled his government with a no- confidence vote. Hatoyama led the conservative - Socialist coalition that Introduced the no-confidence motion Sunday. The coalition controls about 23 votes in the power ful lower house. Yoshida could muster but 18. Iran Rule Until the revolt against him. Yoshida ruled the Diet with an iron hand, backed by a working majority in the lower house. Hato- yama may find the road more difficult. He must, depend to some extent on the Socialists, who said again today they would support him at least temporarily. If the Socialists withdraw their support, the Japanese political kettle will probably boil over again. The resignation may mean the end of the political trail for the 76-year-old Yoshida, who signed the San Francisco peace treaty for Japan and maintained close liaison with the Western nations He will remain a member of the Diet, but beyond that his future is cloudy. The stock market shot up immediately afler the announcement that Yoshida was stepping aside. The action reflected the relief ol business leaders who had feared thai Yoshida would carry out his Ihrcal lo dissolve the Diet and call an expensive national election in a fisht to relain power. Such an election probably would have hurt both conservative factions and aided only the Socialists. No Change The businessmen who bankroll Yoshida's Liberal party, as well as many Liberal parly leaders, have been urghiR Yoshida to resign. He held on through four hours of healed debate this morn •in;, but finally threw In the towel. Hajoyaina has said there will be no change in Japan's relations wilh the United States if he Is tapped for Ihe Prime Minister's job. He says he has a "fundamental conviction Ibal Russia is never to be misled.' 'but he leels full diplomatic relations between Japan and Russia can "help avert war 'Peter the Plotter,' London's Socialite Sateblower, Convicted By HAL COOPER LONDON MV-Debonair Harold Lough White, long a dashing figure in the gilded high society of London's Mayfair district, was sentenced yesterday to seven years in prison as a safe-blower. The 46-year-old playboy, who was on first name terms with many -socialites, was exposed by police itnesses as a big time thief known admiring underworld associates as "Peter the Plotter." Sentenced with Lough White Was his "intelligence officer," Gordon Simpson, 35. who drew a six-year term. An insurance broker, Simpson tipped Ihe mastermind off to the whereabouts of heavily insured valuables. Two other accomplices—"cat burglar" George Chatham, 42, and cracksman Robert Melrose, 40— got 10 years apiece because they had long criminal records. $100,000 Haul All four were charged specilical- defeat the Communists." As he was about to assume the post of prime minister, the occupation purged him from public life. Yoshida took over for a short term, stepped aside for a while, and then was named again in October 1948. The diminutive, cigar-smoking leader has run Japan ever since. But he made many enemies. His fellow conservatives call him a dictator who refuses to consult them on his policies. The Socialists call him reactionary. ly with blowing a Mayfair Jeweler's safe last July and making all with $100,000 worth of gold leaf. Chatham, an expert at stealthy second story work, brought tht gang to grief. Detectives who arrested him on suspicion found fragments of metal from the dynamited strongbox embedded in hia pocket comb. .Lough White, the son of a doctor, once owned a fashionabls night club in Mayfair. He lived on a grand scale, with two private airplanes, a yacht, three automobiles, a town house and a country cottage. His only previous brush with the law came five years ago, when he was sentenced to 12 months for the somewhat more respectable crime of illegally exporting planes to Israel. After his arrest on the safecracking charge, he led police to tha hiding place of the gang's acetylene torches, explosives and other equipment. The equipment was designed by Lough White, whose talents included a thorough undrstanding* of lectronlcs. His refinements included such items as portable transformers to step up the local current for his electric arc cutting tools. Thai Premier Plans Tour BANGKOK (in— Thai Premier P.
