Single Copy->7c AUSTIN, MINN., FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12,1958 Member Associated Press 14 Pages U.S. Wants Moscow Denounced Angered ot Soviet Reign of Terror Forced on Hungary UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) -The United States pressed to- clay for the U.N. Assembly to denounced the Moscow and Budapest governments for their reign of terror in Hungary. The Reds told the West it was wasting its time. The Hungarian debate went into its second round before the General Assembly after day of hitter exchanges between the Western countries and the Soviet bloc. Denounce Executions U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge called on the Assembly to denounce Hungary's puppet lead ers for the executions of former Premier Imre Nagy, Gen. Pal Maleter and "other Hungarian patriots" who took leading roles in the 1!)5G uprising against Soviet domination. Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Palerian Zorin summed up the Communist position. He termed the Hungarian debate a "cold war concoction" and ' declared that netiher Moscow nor Budapest would yield to U.N. pressure, "The Soviet Union and all friends of free Hungary will be able to stand up to it," Zorin said. "Hungary has not and will not he a colony of the U.S.A. or any otlv er state." Acts of Treachery Hungarian Delegate Janos Peter said that Nagy and his associates were executed for acts of treachery. Any nation permitting capital punishment would have done the same, he added. Britain's Sir Pierson Dixon declared that the present situation in Hungary exists soley because j mu< ; h of Minnesotajmd the North- it Is the will of the Soviet government that it should, exist, "and \ WHERE THERE'S A WILL — Al Parker, totally blnid for 15 years, and his leader dog, Luke, combine to shovel a path on a hill near Parker's apartment in Benron Harbor, Mich.

IIIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP)—President Eisenhower and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles confer today on efforts to obtain solid Allied unity in the face of mounting Soviet pressures against West Berlin. Their afternoon conference was scheduled between Dulles' discharge from the hospital and his takeoff for a series of conferences starting next week in the French capital. Dulles has been in Walter Reed Hospital since last Friday undergoing treatment for diverticulilis, an intestinal inflammation Resolve Split His chief task at Paris so far as the Berlin issue is concerned apparently will be to try to resolve a split between Britain and West Germany. The two powers differ on the kind of reply which should be made to the recent Soviet proposal to convert West Berlin into a free city and end the Western occupation there. Chancellor Konrad Adenauer ot| West Germany has taken the po-j sition that the Berlin issue should! be disposed of before any new I proposals on Germany are made! to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrush-! chev.

Wight Impose Full Blockade on West Sector WASHINGTON (AP)— West Gernan Ambassador Wilhelm Grewe predicted today Russia will carry out its threat to destroy the four- power status of Berlin.; He said the Soviet Union might again impose a total blockade on he city's Western-occupied part. The West faces a dangerous situation, Grewe emphasized, even though Russia probably does not ntend to start a major war over the former German capital. Little Hope The German ambassador made it clear in a speech prepared for a luncheon at the National Press Club that he sees little if any hope for ending the Berlin crisis in talks with Russia. "There is not much to negotiate on Berlin," he said. "The monstrosity of Berlin's situation can only be done away with by the reunification of Germany. You cannot negotiate, however, on the reunification issue on the basis of a Soviet ultimatum and under the threat of a unilateral destruction of mutually binding arrangements on Berlin and the legal position of the three Western powers in Berlin." Grewe gave his views to the. Washington press corps after consulting the Bonn government. He arranged to fly to Paris immediately to attend Western conferences on the Berlin crisis, opening there this weekend. The ambassador declined to speculate about countermeasures that might be adopted by the Western powers. He said there is "a basic identity of judgment and of attitude and full mutual confidence" among the United States, Britain, France and-West Germany regarding the Berlin problem. Various plans, proposals and opinions on how to deal with the crisis should not now be interpreted as differences of opinion, he said. Soviets Make Another Bid for Summit Parley MOSCOW (AP)—The Soviet Union put in another bid Thursday night for a summit meeting on causes of international tension. It included the Berlin situation but ruled out discussion of German .reunification. The statement from the official news agency Tass also warned that any Western use of force to maintain access to Berlin would be met by Soviet force and would touch off a nuclear war.
