Russians Up to Old Tricks: Pump .* Propaganda Into NATO Meeting _ »*<»»»• • »» *,•«.•. •HgMJ||||f_gB____^________ HM _ M _ M| _ ||M||M ^ ——^^———"—_^_^ J ^ M . „ „__„_. __ .... _. _ _ _ By .TAMES MARLOW \snoclMfd fret* News Anal?*! WASHINGTON (AP) - There nust be a Kremlin clock that rings every year Just before the foreign ministers of the North At-j Imitic military alliance meet ini ' Paris. It's beginning to ring regularly. You can see the pattern. Bong, the clock goes. Premier Nikita Khrushchev jumps vip and tells the boys In charge of the propaganda section: "Start pumping." It happened last year. Now it's happened again. Last year Secretary of State John Foster Dulles was all set to fly to Paris for the NATO meeting. Then, two days before Dulles' takeoff, the Russians threw out what they must have thought * blockbuster. Summit Meeting In a 3.000-word letter to President Eisenhower the then Pre-, tnier Nicolai Bulganin — withj Khrushchev at his side—proposed a summit meeting and a ban on atomic bomb tests. There was nothing new in it— in the way of fresh ideas—and State Department officials branded It a propaganda trick intended to disturb and maybe split the Allies before they met in Paris. Thursday the Kremlin clock rang Sgain, this time just a day before Dulles' scheduled takeoff for the NATO meeting in Paris Sunday. This time the Russians tried a one-twc-three punch, with Khrushchev, Moscow radio and Tass, the official Soviet news agency, all grabbing the pump handle. Clear Troops The biggest and most critical problem facing the foreign ministers in Paris is the demand made by Khrushchev that the United States, Britain and France all clear their troops out of West Berlin and leave it a free city. The Western powers — particularly the United States and Britain—have indicated they'll do no such thing. The United States, Britain and France, under agreements made with the Russians after World War n, have troops in West Berlin.

The Soviet Union proposed to turn over to the East Germans control of the corridors through which the Western powers now have access to Berlin. Ugly Suggestion The West German government wants the Allies not to yield to the Soviet pressure. But the Russians since Nov. 10 have made ugly suggestions indicating they ere in for a rough time if they don't pull out. So Thursday, one day before Dulles was to fly to Paris, Tass opened up in a move clearly intended to disturb the Western foreign ministers when they meet Sunday in Paris and again, if possible, to split them. Tass accused the West of stalling on Khrushchev's proposal about neutralizing West Berlin. It repeated that use of force in defense of the Western sectors of Berlin would be met with force by the Soviet-led Warsaw Alliance. Radio Moscow chimed in with the statement that the "situation in West Berlin will have to be changed." And Khrushchev — now indisputably the Soviet Union's No. 1 man since Bulganin has been pushed so far out of sight no one hears of him much any more—let to on his own. CHI'S MAYOR TO RUN CHICAGO (AP) - Democratic Mayor Richard J. Daley, serving hie first four-year terra, will be a candidate for re-election in next year's municipal elections. white-haired widow, about 55, set her lip and told them: "That's the fartherest thing from my mind. Here I'll stay." Surrounded by furniture from the old family home, warmed a little from the subfreezing temperatures by a small coal stove, and with a .38-caliber pistol for protection, she has remained just outside the house since being evicted last Monday. No Right Mrs. Williams claims nobody had a right to sell the house for her debts—about $3,000—because she owns it jointly with four other members of her family. "I think it's just old meanness that's njaking her stay out there,' says Police Chief Ray Wells "She's stubborn as a mule." As she sat in the chill, rocking in a family rocker and talking with passers-by, the telephone in the house rang. Someone answered it. It was from Mrs. Williams' son Lowel, a sailor stationed at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station in Illinois. No one heard the conversation but Mrs. Williams came out of the house crying. 'Going to Die Here' Moments later she was just as determined as ever. "I may stay out here forever," she said. "My parents died in that house, and I'm going to die there too." Creditors brought the eviction suit three years ago. The house was sold by order of the Circuit Court. She stayed in it three mouths before she was turned out. merce sees improved business conditions in 1959. But its optimism is tempered spending for new plants and equipment, adding: "It is difficult labor costs, possible strikes and limited industrial expansion. The Chamber, nationwide business organization, based its forecasts largely on reports from seven key industries — autos, steel, retailing, building, food, durable goods and finance. Attending the Chamber's annual business outlook conference, spokesmen for these industries were unanimous in their optimism. 5 Per Cent Rise Over-all, the Chamber predicted a 5 per cent rise in jobs, income and production in 1959. Dr. Emerson B. Schmidt, chief economist for the Chamber, spoke of a gradual increase to a record national output totaling about 475 billion dollars in the coming year, In 1960, Schmidt said, output should top 500 billions. However, he said a number ef without a strong capital goods boom. This is, perhaps, the greatest element of uncertainty for 1959. ..." Schmidt also said auto sales still are uncertain. Slowing in Recovery The Chamber's top economist said there has been a slowing in business recovery. Unemployment he said, may stay higher throughout 1959 than in the prerecession 1957 period. Rising labor costs, he said, will tend to hold back re-employment. In this connection, he said "wage and fringe settlements are likely to exceed productivity improvements by a wider margin than in 1958." Furthermore, he said he was concerned that strikes and other labor troubles may rise, particularly if recovery seems firm.

(AP)-The chan AUSTIN (Minn.) HERALD Friday, Dec. 12, .1958 Paperless N. Y. Waits Talk Result NEW YORK (AP)-A newspa perlcss New York today awaited the outcome of a negotiation ses sion aimed at ending a delivery men's strike at the city's nine ma jor dailies. Mayor Robert F. Wagner offered his help. Some of the news was getting through as radio and television stations expanded coverage. There were other sources. The New York Central Railroad was distributing handbill-like digests to commuters with news supplied by The Associated Press as a public service. Publish 'Extras WRCA, key station of the NBC network, published tabloid-sized "extras" f o r distribution on streets and in railway stations. The Long Island Daily Press, one of the nine papers at which presses were still, set up a projection slide news service in Pennsylvania Station for Long Island Rail Road commuters. Also, a limited amount of out- of-town papers were seeping into the city, the largest newspaper publishing community in America. The nine papers that have temporarily discontinued publication are the Press, the Times, the Herald Tribune, the Daily News, the Mirror, the World-Telegram and Sun, the Journal-American, the Post and the Long Island Star- Journal. They employ more than 22,000 persons with a payroll in excess of two million dollars a week. Furloiighlng Employes Several of the papers announced they were furloughing most of their employes without pay for the duration of the strike. After the deliverymen struck Tuesday night, all nine papers attempted to keep going, selling limited runs at their plants. Wednesday night printers at the News refused to cross picket lines and the News missed all editions. Francis M. Flynn, publisher of the News, said the printers' ac- GOING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS — Tommy Walters, 17, has good reason to smile at New York University Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Recreation Department officials also sent over aid until residents were advised of Santa's correct number. Horse Tosses Queen, She Files Lawsuit REDWOOD CITY, Calif.
