Israel Ousts All Egyptian Troopl Molotov Pressured By West To Accept Unification Plan JL •f • Concessions On Question Said Remote '-Only Possible Accord Is Broad Statement That Plan'Is Good' GENEVA MV-Sccretary of State Dultae told Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov in the Big Four conference" today that the greatest danger of recreating German militarism lies in "perpetuating German, disunity." Spearheading a Western effort to press Molotov nearer Western ideas.on unification of Germany, Dulles in effect accused the Sovfet Union of being afraid of the results of free and secret all-German elections. The Western powers have proposed such elections as an essential first step in their unification program. Dulles, speaking from notes, said that risk is inherent in free and secret elections. : Under the Communist system in East Germany, he said, with only one list of candidates on the.ballot—he held up an East German ballot to the conference—the leaders could be sure of what, would come out of the voting because they were sure of what went in. , • Dulles attacked a proposal which Molotov had made yesterday for forming an all-German council of West and East German parliamentary representatives. He said this proposal was "most noteworthy in its. complete failure" to comply with a directive on Germany issued by the Big Four heads of government here last July. The only agreement' that Appears remotely possible at 'this'.foreign ministers' conference .is a broad statement that German unification would,be a good thing and that the four powers will continue to' negotiate-on it. Not Complete Failure . Even though the basic positions remain unchanged, this would permit both East and West to claim the conference was not a complete failure. Should' such an agreement be reached, U.S. Secretary of State Dulles, British Foreign Secretary Macmillan and French Foreign Minister Pinay could be expected to agree to continue parallel negotiations on a European security treaty which the Soviet wants. Dulles yesterday developed the point that Russian and Western proposals on security already have certain similarities. Differences Unresolved » But the basic difference remains unresolved—whether a European security treaty should be made to cover a divided Germany or a re(Continued on Page 2, Col..3) Peron Flying To Nicaragua SALVADOR, Brazil UP)—Juan D. Peron, exiled former.- dictator of Argentina, left Salvador this morning, heading for Nicaragua to visit his old friend, President Anastasio Somoza. The • Paraguayan air force DC4 carrying Peron apparently intends to stop over at Belem, on the equator in the extreme north of Brazil.

But there was speculation that his ultimate destination might be Europe.

Refugee Agency Wins Peace Prize Aid To Those Fleeing Homeland Seen Reason For JN T obel Recognition OSLO-— (INS) — The 1954 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded today to the United Nations High Commission For Refugees (UNHCR). The 1955 Peace Prize was- re? served for possible award next year since none was awarded last year. The 1953 Nobel Prize went .'to general of the Army George Catlett Marshall and to Dr. .Albert Schweitzer, Alsatian philosopher, musician and medical missionary in French West Africa. ' . The Norwegian Nobel Institute in Oslo traditionally is not called on to explain its award, but the gift to the U. N. organization obviously is for the work it has done in giving international protection to refugees who have fled their homelands because of fear of political, religious'or racial persecution. The U. N. General Assembly created the Refugee Commission Jan. 1, 1951. The cash award amounts to $35,066. % Its function is to promote the conclusion, ratification and implementation of international conven* tions and to encourage the adoption of legislation and other measures in favor of refugees' admission, right to work, social security and legal status.

"Hospitals have got to get back to being clean and safe places," Dr. Carl W. Walter told the American College of Surgeons.
