State election law forbids un- pledged delegations. "We are proceeding with plans for the June (5) presidential primary campaign in California," Knight said, "on the assumption that President Eisenhower will accept renomination and will again lead the party to victory In next year's elections." Outlined Plane His press statement outlined plans for doing what Knight said all along he would do. Its timin though, raised some question as t owhether he is trying to stake out a claim on the big '.elegation, second only to New York's, ahead of Vice President Richard M. Nixon and en. Willima F. Knowland (R-Calif). knight previously said he would be happy to have both Knowland and Nixon as members of his delegation. Known to be cool toward Nixon, he has been silent on whom he would support at the convention in the event Eisenhower bows out.

Will Delay Trip Asked at his r.ews conference whether the imminent birth of a fourth Eisenhower grandchild at the Army's Walter Reed Hospital in Washington had anything to do with the change in plans, Hagerty replied in the ; negative. Mrs. Eisenhower wants to get her Christmas plans formulated, Hagerty said. The general impression is that Eisenhower will delay his trip to a warmer climate until after the arrival of the new child for Maj. and Mrs. John Elsenhower. The other three grandchildren are going to spend Christmas at the White House. The President will confer at the White House tomorrow with Secretary of State Dulles and meet at 2:15 p.m. Thursday with the National Security Council. The only official caller scheduled to see Eisenhower today was Dillon Anderson, his special assistant for na'ona! security matters. They arranged to meet at the Eisenhower farm this morning in preparation for Thursday's White House meeting of the National Security Council. Because of a new cold wave in Gettysburg, Eisenhower canceled plans to visit his office in the Gt- tysburg post office building. The President yesterday accepted with "deep regret" the resignation, effective Dec. 31, of Nelson A. Rockefeller, for the past year his special assistant on psychological strategy. Elsenhower, planning to leave here at 9 a.m. tomorrow, will meet later that d»y with Secretary of State Dulles, who reported to him by long distance telephone yesterday on the results 01 the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Council meeting In Paris last week.

GEORGE (Continued from Page 1) medium and low wage earners. • In equally intensive rounds of speech-making, Taimadge roundly assailed those federal programs with which George might be linked] although he has not referred .oj the senator by name. | The ex-governor declared that j the foreign assistance program was a "Global \VPA" which well could bankrupt the nation and make it easy prey for communism. He charged the government had billions to lavish on foreign recipients but was too niggardly with its own farmers to give them badly needed help. More than 60 trillion ultra-viruses, nature's smallest living things and deadly enemies of mankind, can be crowded into a square inch.

RIOTING (Conttnutd from P*f* U Jordan-held Bethlehem — Christ's birthplace — was ordered after 200 to 300 demonstrators stormed the Turkish consulate In the Jordan sector of Jerusalem, burning the Turkish fl«K and wounding the consul general. Four rioters were reported killed and 27 wounded by fir from Jordanian troops. Safety Measure The curfew obviously was a snfo- ty measure to protect Christian pilgrims, particularly those from the West, who flock to the scene of the Nativity only five miles southwest of Jerusalem. It was not clear what effect the curfew would have on the traditional Christmas Eve services there. The curfew could be lifted before the church service Saturday night, or it could be held not to apply to religious ceremonies. However, its existence emphasized the mounting tension between Israel and its Arab neighbors. Israeli border guardposts are scarcely 100 yards from the Bethlehem hills. The curfew was imposed by Jordan's governor of Jerusalem and the Holy Places, Hassan El Kasem. Within Jordan, tension over the proposal for adherence to the Baghdad Pact extended from the Arab sector of Jerusalem — the Old City with its,many holy places to the capital at Amman. Combined details of Arab Legion troops and local police patrolled Jerusalem streets throughout the night to prevent any further violence It was Amman's second night on the alert. Anti-pact rioting there Sunday resulted in the death of one man and the wounding of several others. A visit to Amman by Gen. Sir Gerald Templer, chief of Britain's imperial general staff, preceded the outbreaks. He submitted the proposal for revising and expanding the 1948 British-Jordan agreement under which Britain has equipped and trained the Arab Legion. Jordan's military force. Under the broader plan, all this would be merged in the five-power pact formed originally as a Middle Eastern, shield against any Communist aggression in the area Only one Arab country, Iraq, now belongs to the alliance. Iraq's adherence caused deep resentment amona: some other Arab countries, notably Egypt and Syria. Lawless Arm Longer LOUISVILLE, Ky.

Only Slightly Higher "They are asking twice as much as they asked for this year after promising congressional leaders less than a week ago their requests will be similar to this year's," he said in a followup interview today.
