GOP Head to Resist Dem Block Martin Fights Effort to Curb Strength of Rules Committee WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republican leader Joseph W. Martin Jr. of Massachusetts indicated today he would resist efforts of a self-styled liberal block to curb the power of the House Rules Committee. In an interview from his home in North Attleboro, Martin predicted that the new Congress will keep the present ratio of 8 Democrats and 4 Republicans on the potent rules group. He said he expects no change despite heavy Democratic gains in the November election. Martin said there has been "an understanding" between the Republican and the Democratic House leadership that the 8-4 lineup would not be altered.

Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn) isn't going to use his recent Asian - European tour and his well-publicized interview with Khrushchev as a springboard toward the Democratic presidential nomination. "We haven't got into 1959 yet, let's not start talking about 19(50," he told a group of party well-wishers who met his plane carrying a huge "Humphrey in '60" sign Tuesday night.

One shift from the unanimous Humphrey Gives Ike Full Report WASHINGTON (AP)— President- Eisenhower said today that the United States and its Allies have a right and duty to protect the freedom of West Berlin and they do not intend to abandon the city or Its people. The President told his news conference he failed to find any-_ thing particularly new in the la-' test suggestions about the Berlin situation from Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D* Minn) relayed the Khrushchev deas to Eisenhower. The President declined to discuss them in detail, but it was learned elsewhere that Khrushchev mainly said he would welcome construe-- ive suggestions from the West for ending Berlin's occupation. 1st Hand Report On another aspect of Humphrey's eight-hour talk with Khru-. shchev, on which Eisenhower received a first-hand report "from the senator Tuesday, Eisenhower confirmed that Khrushchev had claimed a compact, five-megaton nuclear bomb and an 8,700-mile missile. But he indicated hs was not especially impressed by this specific information nor did he see any reason to change U.S. estimates of Soviet military power—which have long assumed the ability to tentative vote was the now unan- try. imous award of a route between to live with that system, whether we like it or not."
