U. S. Replies To Red Of fer Of No Force ' •-GENEVA Iff)—U.S. Ambassador U. Alexis Johnson told Red Chinese Ambassador Wang Ping-nan here today that'a Red offer to renounce force would not be satisfactory to the United States unless it specifically applied to Formosa and other Nationalist-held islands. Johnson, it was reliably reported, delivered- the American reply to the Chinese offer during the ambassadors' 25th meeting. .Wang last week told Johnson that Red China was ready to accept the nonaggression obligations of the U.N. charter without demanding simultaneous recognition as a U.N. member. This offer left Formosa unprotected. . : Despite the -familiar difficulties of negotiating with .the Chinese Communists, diplomatic officials feel that the Chinese and American positions are gradually coming closer together. , •'. Nevertheless, officials say, a meeting between Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and Red Chinese Premier and Foreign Minister Chou En-lai—which is one of Wang's principal objectives in the talks—is still a long way off.. WASHINGTON UPt-President Eisenhower has focused the United States search.for Middle Eastern peace once more on economic aid and a military willingness to guarantee security. At the same time, he emphasized yesterday that while the United States will continue to consider requests for arms for self defense, it will not "cpntribute to an arms competition in the Near East." Taking a personal hand in American efforts to end Arab-Israeli friction, the President issued a statement at Denver renewing his endorsement of ''the economic and security contributions which this country was prepared to make," as outlined by Secretary.' of State Dulles'last Aug: 26. In a New York speech, Dulles proposed then: 1. Loans to compensate refugees, develop water resources and irrigate arid lands in the Middle East. 2. U.S. participation in formal treaty guarantee the embattled borders between Israel and her Arab neighbors, if the two sides agree on a permanent peace. Those points also got simultaneous attention overseas. In Geneva Dulles and British Foreign Secretary Harold -Macmillan considered the possibility of raising money to help Egypt harness the waters of the River Nile. In London, Prime Minister Anthony Eden echoed Dulles' August offer to guarantee the frontiers once the Iraelis and Arab states agree to a permanent peace. Eden accused Russia of creating additional danger in the Middle East by shipment of arms and said "it -is fantastic to pretend that this deliberate act of policy was an innocent commercial transaction." • LONDON W) — Red China denounced today the American demand for a . Peiping declaration barring the use of. force in settlement of the Formosa dispute. .-. Peiping radio said the U. S. State Department is "seeking to abuse the no force principle in international relations" by insisting that it cover Formosa. Kefauver Due To Make Bid WASHINGTON UB-Some of Sen. Kefauver's friends said today they expect him to announce in . the next two or three weeks a can didate for the Democratic presidential nomination. The -Tennessean was reported to be trying to wind up a number of committee hearings and to get caught up with other work before issuing a statement about his political plans. At the .1952 Democratic convention, Kefauver was the front-runner on the first two ballots but then lost out to Adlai Stevenson in the battle for the, nomination. A-Weapons Launched From Subs Said Threat To Coast . BOSTON OB — Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Arleigh A. Burke says submarine launched weapons "tipped with atomic warheads, could constitute' a real threat to our coastal areas, to our port cities and to, our sea lanes." Burke spoke yesterday at the commissioning of the USS Forrest Sherman, a, new type destroyer which he called, "the U, S. Navy's latest submarine killer." He said one of the Navy's foremost challenges today comes from . the submarine. "The submarine is becoming more versatile than she has ever been," he said. "Today's subma rines are capable of laying many types of mines, landing commandos, fueling and arming seaplanes; they are capable of launching torpedoes and guided missiles. "Nuclear - powered submarines provide even a much greater threat for they have increased speed and range and staying power. They are tougher to find and tougher to kill." Burke described the Forrest Sherman like this: "She has the very latest equipment to detect, to pinpoint and kil the submarine. She is more live- able and she is more deadly than her World War II predecessors. "Antisubmarine warfare is only one of the many missions that this ship is prepared to accomplish She is prepared to kill enemy aircraft and destroy surface raiders "She Is truly the workhorse of the fleet" German Rift Blocks Big 4 Four Fliers Rescued At Sea Five 'Chuted From Plane IntoPacific 'Flying Boxcar' Engine Ran Wild; Hopes Still High For Saving Other HONOLULU-tf) - Four of five airmen who bailed out last night :rom "a stricken Flying Boxcar into the stormy Pacific have been rescued, two of them early today, the Navy announced.

The violent anti-American sentiments were credited to Chaplin in an interview published in the left- wing publication "National Guard- an," in a story written under the byline of Cedric Belfrage. Belfrage, "editor in exile" of the Sfew York-published weekly, was himself deported'from the U. S. recently because of membership in :he Communist Party. Like Chapin, he is British.

Tomorrow it's off to Washington and ;a joyous "welcomei home" reception. The mood at the hospital on this final day—among the doctors, nurses and all the others who have cared for the 65-year-old President—is a joyous, one, too. They are all delighted—and so relieved that his damaged heart is mending well. • Eisenhower undoubtedly is happiest of all, although his wife is feeling mighty good about the way things are going. With check-out time just a day off, the P r e s i d e n t'S business agenda was being kept light to assure as much last minute rest as possible.

Departure from the hospital is fixed for about 8:30 a.m. MST tomorrow and 30 minutes later he will take off for Washington aboard his private plane, Columbine III. His doctors .agree, that the^Presi dent could have left the hospital a few days ago if. he had been willing to be carried aboard the plane. But he - insisted that when he did leave he was going to be able to walk up the 19-step ramp. Now he is able to do that. Yesterday he walked up and down a 20- step flight of stairs at the hospital a half dozen times. Vote Trend' Claims Split Both Parties Rep. Kirwaii Predicts Demo Gains In House; GOP Cites Local Issues WASHINGTON L?—Rep. Kirwan (D-Ohio) said today Tuesday's election results indicate Democrats will boost their House majority next year by even more than the 30-seat gain he previously predicted. But Rep. Richard M. Simpson (R-Pa) saw only "local issues" as having decided the vote. He still predicted a Republican pickup of 32 seats to take command of the House in 1956. The sharp contrast in views of the chairmen of Democratic and Republican congressional campaign committees underscored the split between leaders of the two parties over what the election sig nified. The voters themselves gave the Democrats a clear net gain over the GOP in the city and state contests. Both See Victory Democratic Sens. K e f a u v e r (Tenn) and Humphrey (Minn) in separate interviews claimed the outcome foreshadows continued control of Congress and capture of the White House by their party. Kefauver, expected to run for the Democratic presidential nomination, said "it's good news for the Democrats next year." Humphrey, who is willing to run for vice president,-called it "just an other step forward to return of Democratic control in the national capital." But Sen. Curtis (R-Neb) said the Tuesday vote was "not significant-'' as far as next year's national-elections are concerned, because the 1956 contests "will depend on conditions prevailing next year." Presidential Main Factor "The presidential race will be :he main factor next year in congests for the Senate, the House, governors and other offices," Cur:is said. He did not indicate who expects to head the party tickets, but declared "the Democrats are hard put for any candidate who would be a real threat." Kirwan, who recently predicted after a grass roots survey that the Democrats would gain 30 House seats in 1956, said the new elections indicate that might be conservative. The present House lineup is 231 Democrats, 203 Republicans and one vacancy. Meanwhile the farm issue got another whirl with statements from he chairman of the rival national committees. Farm Issue Tops Democratic Chairman Paul M. Sutler said a poll of 1,600 party leaders, from county chairmen to former President Truman, showed 1,279 believing that falling farm income will be the greatest issue n the 1956 campaign. Butler-said the poll, in which the Democrats were asked to check off 10 of 20 subjects listed as controversial under the Eisenhower administration, also resulted in "tax favoritism for the rich" running second with 1,059 votes and Makes An Of fer "public power giveaways" third with 977.

Attaches Note Concern Over Boycotts South Africa, France Moves Pose Question Of Complete Breakoff UNITED NATIONS, N.Y..UPI-— Faced with, boycotts by two mem bfer .•"natibrisv''-lJ$Jr." diplomats expressed graved, concern today over what effect the action may have on the future of the world body. France and South Africa .are both shunning, the Assembly over issues brought up by the Arab- Asian bloc. Delegates wondered whether further steps on the inflammatory issues might prompt some member to quit the U.N. altogether. Both France and. South Africa walked out in protest over what ;hey claimed was U.N. interference in their internal affairs. Both accused the U.N. of ignoring repeated warnings they would not tolerate further intervention. Behind-Seenes Moves South Africa's walkout, over the Special Political Committee's decision to probe into her racial segregation policies, came amid aehind-scenes moves to toss out :he stormy Algerian independence item which sparked France's boycott. France's absence from the U.N.. since the Assembly voted Sept. 30 to take up Algeria, has raised serious problems. Question Arms Issue Primarily it has inspired a number of delegates to question the wisdom of taking up disarmament, a key topic this year, if the -French are absent. The French have played a major role on the U.N. Disarmament Commission and its big power subcommittee. This is believed one of the main reasons behind a move pushed by Colombia and other members to get. the Assembly to throw out the Algerian case in hopes this might cause France to reconsider her boycott. Arab delegates have served notice they will resist any attempt to junk the item. Soviet Stand Clouds Hope For Accord Molotov Wants West Powers To Renounce Use Of Atom Weapons -" •GENEVA W — Russia pro- ;posed in the Big : Four conference today that the major powers renounce immediately the use of atomic weapons as •'.-' a first step toward working out -rorld disarmament. By JOHN H1GHTOWER • GENEVA ® — Total East-West disagreement over unification o! Germany threatened today to paralyze progress on every issue at :he Big Four foreign ministers conference. : Two of these issues are disarmament — to be taken up today—" and proposals to lift some Iron Curtain barriers to trade, travel and information. But Western diplomats said only a radical twist in Soviet policy restoring the friendly atmosphere oi last July's summit conference could brighten prospects, of accomplishing anything on these questions. ' : : Must Have Confidence The world's hopes for ending the atomic arms race greatly depend upon a spirit of confidence among the great powers. Such a spirit, encouraged at the summit meeting, led some Western officials to believe new impetus to disarmament could be given here. In words that sometimes crackled with anger, and at other times seemed sorrowful, the . Western ministers yesterday told Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov that loss of confidence was one of the most serious results of the Soviet policy on Germany. Is .It < Worth Much? U. S. Secretary of State Dulles said bluntly: . "I am wondering again whether an agreement with the Soviet Union is worth much." Molotov made it clear Russia will never agree to unification of Germany unless it is by means which would make sure the com- munizalion of the whole country.. Unshaken by the verbal pounding, Molotov announced he wants to bring up further proposals on Germany and European security. He then called for the reduction of foreign troops in, Germany "by, say 50 per cent," and reduction of total armed forces of the four big powers by a number .equivalent tc the troops withdrawn from Germany. Radar Tower Plans Bared WASHINGTON ufc-The Navy today awarded contracts for building two additional "Texas tower" radar warning platforms off the northeast coast.

Maine, in 50 feet of water. The contract for this third tower in the current year's construction program has not been awarded. that promise is being fulfilled." Patron 'Sorting* Of Mail To Help Speed Delivery WASHINGTON tfl - New red, white and blue steel racks will soon show up in the lobbies of some 750 big office buildings throughout the country in the Post Office's latest move to be more efficient. The racks, holding three mail bags ready to be tied up when filled, will have three funne! slots: "Local," "Out-of-Town" and "Air Mail." So the mail sender, in effect, does his own sorting. Postmaster General Summerfield said in announcing the new move that, it- should both speed delivery and save more than $600,000 a year in post office sorting costs.
