I. GOLDBERG UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. til- Russia demanded today a full de bate on disarmament in the U. N Assembly Political Committee without waiting for disarmamenl decisions by the Big Four foreign ministers. ; Arkady A. Sobplev, permaneni Soviet delegate to the U.N., made the demand in the 12-nalion U.N Disarmament Commission. He accused the commission of attempting to delay a report on disarmament debates of its big- nation subcommittee. Further delays would be harmful, he said. Refutes Allegations "It has been alleged that discussion of" would interfere with -or prevent discussion by the Big Four ministers," Soboley said. "But disarmamenl was a major topic of all the general policy 1 statements in the assembly. Every member of the United Nations has the right to debate this subject." • . The Big Four foreign ministers meet at Geneva Oct. 27. The Disarmament Commission subcomittec — composed of the United 'States, Britain, France, the Soviet Union and Canada — recessed sessions here pet. 7. They were deadlocked over disarmament plans, especially on U. S. insistence that President Eisenhower's "open sky" plan be adopted as a prelude to disarmament. Under that plan, the United Stales and the Soviet Union would exchange aerial reconnaissance and defense blueprints to prevent iurprisc attack. Sobolev told 'I" 5 commission- composed of the 11 Security Council members and Canada—that cv erybody agrees on the necessity of measures to avert surprise; attack. That',''together with closeness of agreement on the necesslty'bfrc- ducing armed forces, and the necessity of continuing inspection make it desirable to open the disarmament debate here, So- boley said. He said there wa§ now • a definite possibility of reaching agreement. Blames United Slates He blamed the United States for blocking progress in the closed subcommittee sessions. Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., chief U.S. delegate,. listened intently. Harold E. Stassen, his deputy the subcommittee talks, is accompanying Secretary of State Dulles to Paris for preliminary Big Four consultations. Sobolev's statement unveiled some of the mystery behind his 'request last week for an urgent meeting of the commission. Sir Leslie Munro, New Zcalander who is also chairman of the Assembly Political CnmmiUec, quickly protested the Soviet request. He said the commission would not give the General Assembly an intelligent report on the disarmament discussions until it had studied the verbatim reports from the •17 closed meetings of the subcommittee which began in London last spring and resumed' here Aug. 29 on the instructions of the Big Four summit meeting. The reports made a pile of documents a foot end a half high on Munro's desk. His statement, regarded as mirroring the over-all position of the Western powers, said the report and subsequent discussion in the Assembly and its committees would have .to follow 'such study and instructions from home governments. "We have a duty lo represent as well as a duty to speak," Munro said. "To put it bluntly why should the small powers be pushed around in this contemptuous way?"

Lehman's declaration indicated :he possibility of a split in the 90-vote New York state delegation, argest in the Democratic National Convention. Democratic National Committeeman Carmine G.

The CIO United Auto Workers union' was' still on strike at the Perfect Circle Corp. foundry, and Gov. George N. Craig was accused by a union spokesman of failing for the third time to keep his word. The Guard moved in the night of Oct. 5 after eight persons were wounded in a riot involving strike sympathizers, outside the foundry and nonstrikers inside. Full martial law was imposed by Gov.Craig Oct. 10 and lifted yesterday. The governor left 130 Guardsmen on duty here under civil authority. At its peak,.the Guard force numbered 1,000, including those stationed at the Hagerstown and Richmond plants of the company. Raymond H. Berndt, UAW regional director, said in a statement ""The people of Indiana can now. plainly see that the governor is not interested in the parties resolving the disputes in the strike, but instead is only interested in using this situation for politics and publicity." The strike began July 25 at the Perfect Circle foundry here, the main plant at Hagerstown and .two plants at Richmond, in east-central indiana. The company continued .0 operate. Chief issues were the UAW demands for a union shop, a layoff pay plan and higher, wages. The company rejected a union offer to arbitrate.

(/R—President Eisenhower was "refreshed and. cheerful" today after a good, night's sleep. A 7:30 a. m. hospital bulletin reported: "The President had a good night's sleep of eight hours and awoke feeling refreshed and •cheerful. His condition continues to progress satisfactorily without complications." DENVER Ml — President Eisenhower gets back into still another government business field today at hospital conference with Atty. Gen. Brownell. Step by slow step since his Sept. 24 heart attack, the President has been resuming active direction of international and domestic policy at meetings with top administration officials. He will discuss Justice Department matters with Brownell, who played an important backstage role in helping win the Republican presidential nomination for Eisenhower in 1952. : No Politics On Agenda Both the attorney general and the Denver White House said in advance of today's conference, however, that politics • was not on the agenda. A prominent physician said he believes'the President can run for another term if he wants to. ., Dr. Eugene Lepeschkin of the University of Vermont Medical School, consulted recently on the Eisenhower case, said in Burlington, VI., that "if the President avoids any emotional or physical strain and meantime watches his health, he would be physically able lo run again." Lepeschkin, a cardiogram specialist, studied Eisenhower's damaged heart performance at the request of Dr. Paul Dudley White of Boston, eminent heart authority who flew to the President's bedside a few hours . after he was stricken. ^ Don't Believe He'll Run- The general impression here still is that Eisenhower, allhough convalescing steadily, won't seek a second term. There had been speculation he might want to talk over his plans with Brownell. Brownell said in Washington yesterday that he had no plans to get into politics at the meeting witii Eisenhower. He refused to comment when asked whether he believed the President would run again. And he said it would be "inappropriate" for him to suggest whom the Republicans should nominate if the President bows out.
