Return To Tough Tactics Unless evidence -of Russian behavior at the current Big Four conference is completely deceptive, the softer line of Soviet strategy has been replaced by a return to much harder tactics.

Instead Molotov delivered the hardest.blow yet struck by a Soviet spokesman at the Eisenhower plan. \ Terming Russia's attitude toward the plan "negative," Molotov rejected it. and" assailed every American argument advanced in its favor. .Sees War Fears Increased He denied it would create confidence or could serve as a firsl step toward a complete disarma ment program. He said it would increase the fear of war. Molotov said Russia's attitude would be "favorable" if the plan were tailored to • Soviet demands for abolition of atomic weapons and prior development of a complete arms reduction program. Such conditions are contrary, to Eisenhower's purpose of getting some action taken immediately as a first step in working out a dis armament program.

Hen rique Teixeira Lott, ousted provi sional President Carols Coimbra D. Luz and took over the government early today. The navy ; and air force refused to support . the army coup and issued a joint statement pledging; loyalty to Luz. A few hours later j the fashionable Copacabana Beach section was rocked by cannon fire from Copacana fort. Witnesses said the fort's . big guns were fired across the bow of a warship heading .out of the harbor and that the ship turned back.

''•'> here. the dispute over the Saar has repeatedly poisoned relations be- .ween Paris and Bonn, and blocked any real progress toward a broader move toward West European integration. .......... The proposed scheme.-for "Eu- ropeanization" of the Saar, which vas intended as a settlement of .hese differences, was rejected by :he Saarlanders themselves by a two to one margin in a plebiscite ast month. Since then the problem has been eft on the shelf in ,the expectation that the Geneva conference might produce some agreement on German unity and thus change the perspective of the Saar question. This hope was torpedoed by Molotov when he made clear the Soviet Union will not, at this stage, agree to a unification of East and West Germany unless it is pretty sure of extending the sway of communism. French and German leaders are now reverting to the belief that the best way to obtain German unification is to establish a pole of attraction in the West based on a prosperous and unified*European economy. Pinay's conferences in Bonn are designed to explore any alternatives to the rejected "European- ization" plan in the Saar. Soft Goal Production Soars Above 10,000,000 WASHINGTON 'wv-The National Coal Assn... today estimated bituminous production in the week endec Nov. 5 was 10,100,000 tons, the firs' time it : has topped'the. 10 millior ton mark since the week ended Dec. 20 in 1952. s Production the previous week was 9,990,000 tons and in the - cor responding-week of 1954 it was 8, 597,000. A heavy rain fell on the capital and the center of the city was qiliet although tension was' apparent. The bloodless coup was carried out so quietly most residents of lio de Janeiro did not even know t was happening. A special session of Congress vas called to decide who would assume • the- presidency. Consti- utionally the ; post .would,, go to 'vereu Ramos, -vice-president of he Senate. Took Over Last Tuesday Luz, former president of the House of Deputies, took over as emporary president only last Tuesday. The capital went about its early morning business normally under a driving rain. A few extra mili- :ary police and troops were on the streets. What started out as a bloodless coup by the army assumed serious proportions as the navy and air "orce issued a joint statement saying they "remain and will remain loyal" to the President. At midmorning, the capital con jnued calm, but an air of tension was apparent in official circles. Cabinet ministers, including Minister of Justice Prado Kelly were reported under arrest. Only last night Teixeira Lott who had been, holding the lid down on army elements which wanted to prevent the inauguration of Pres ident-elect Juscelino Kubitschek resigned as war minister in a dis pute with Luz. •"'..' v ••. Issues Proclamation After .resigning, Teixeira Lott went to the central army barracks of the federal district and took command. He 'issued a proclamation to the nation saying a movement was being made against the temporary president because of his decision in the case of a colonel whom the resigned war minister wanted to discipline for political activity. • The proclamation said the deci sion had provoked the army and injured its honor. President-elect Juscelino Kubitschek, shown with his daughter, Marcia, ;-in their Rio de Janeiro apartment, was scheduled to 'be inaugurated next January -31, 'before army, staged bloodless coup today.

MILWAUKEE \M~ The third heresy trial in the history of the northwest synod of the;United Lutheran Church last night found the Rev^yictor-K.

The Rev.'Mr. Wrigley, pastor of Gethsemene Church in the nearby small community of -.Btpokfield in Waukesha County, was not present when the trial board returned its Convicts Told To Starve End Hunger Strike " BOSTON'Wl — Sixteen hunger- striking state prison convicts were eating again today after quitting .heir two-day fast on the word of a prison official that "they could starve for all anybody cared." The prisoners quit eating Wednesday with the announcement .hey wanted the State Correction Commission to go to the prison to lear their complaints. Commissioner Russell G. Oswald, who came here from Wisconsin to take over the job less than two weeks ago, refused to heed the request. Oswald declared he would not go near the prisoners until they showed some "responsibility." He added he would not permit the prisoners to "intimidate me" and called their hunger strike a move for "publicity." The strike was led by murderer Fritz Swenson, rapist-robber Joseph A. Flaherty and armed robber Walter H. Balben. Those three and bank robber Theodore Green held six guards hostage 84 hours last January in a vain attempt to break out of the pr; findings. The 33-year-old minister did not attend any portion of the trial or previous investigational hearings on the advice of his church council .vhich demanded certain procedural concessions from the synod be!ore it would permit him to be present. . . The recommendations of .the seven-member trial board were presented to Dr. Paul E. Bishop, synod president from Minneapolis. rle said he would "without a doubt 'ollow" the recommendation. The trial board found him guilty of charges alleging he denied the objectives of Holy Scripture, re- )udiated true exposition of the ialy Scripture in conformance vith Lutheran confessions, denied he historical fact of the Virgin )irth of Christ, denied the physical Resurrection of Christ, and repii dialed the sacramental union in .he Lord's Supper. The sixth allegation contended ie denied original sin. The trial board said it was unable to return a verdict on the charge because of conflicts in the pastor's defense statement.

ROME;UP) — The Middle East Arms race took a new twist today .vith a 'report by authoritative -Circes that Egypl has a contract #ith an Italian firm for 30 Varn pire jet fighters. , If the fighters are delivered— under an agreement reportedly signed six "months ago—it-would mean Egypt was getting :: 'arms from a -JN ATO member. as well t as from the Communist bloc. It seemed reasonably certain pressure would be brought on the Italian government to block del cry of the Vampires to check a dangerous arms buildup where Egyptian and Israeli guns are glaring at each other. Egypt already is receiving large shipments of weapons from Communist-government Czechoslovakia via Russian Black Sea ports. This deal is reported to cover 200 Soviet-built MJG jet fighters and 100 Russian-made tanks plus a half dozen submarines, all at cutrate prices. A correspondent for the "National Broadcasting Co. in Cairo, Wilson Hall, quoted Premier Gamal Abdel Nasser as saving some of the new Communist-supplied arms already are on the Egyptian-Israeli border. Informed sources gave this ac count of the Italian deal: Six months ago Egypt signed a contract with the Macchi Co. ( which makes Vampires under license from the British, designers, for 30 planes to be paid for in cash in Italian currency. Under a previous arrangement, Macchi delivered 16 Vampires to Egypt prior to last February. Egyptian intelligence sources were claiming Israel received 36 French-made Mystere-3 jet fight ers in recant months, six of them passing through Rome only 10 or 13 days ago.

VACCARO " DENVER a> — "An eternally grateful" President : Eisenhower left Denver for Washington today after Celling of his thanks to all who have aided him in his illness. Speaking from the ramp of the Columbine III in raw, damp 36- degree weather, he said that the misfortune of his illness made him aware "of how good people are." - . . The 'President, looking surprisingly well, told an audience of Air Force personnel and a small group of friends and dignitaries, that the :orce at Fitzsimons Army Hospi- and at Lowry Air Force Base iad • "earned my eternal: gratitude:" Expressed Appreciation He expressed appreciation top, '.or the "messages of friendship" and to the people around the world who had "sent up their prayers" for his recovery when he was ;tricken :sevea weeks ago tomorrow. He spoke but briefly after he and Mrs. Eisenhower drove up to Jie ramp of their plane to be greeted .by a bipartisan' group leaded by Democratic Gov. Ed Johnson and Republican Mayor Will Nicholson. The President wore a camel's iair top coat and a brown hat.: Standing on the sixth step of :he ramp, he spoke simply and ivith no word about any, major domestic or foreign policy. "Again, it is time for Mrs. Eisenhower and me to say goodby," tie began. "We leave under somewhat unusual circumstances this time."

He "then paid the medical ; staff, nurses,, corpsmen, enlisted men and others at Fitzsimons Hospital, "my very grateful thanks." The President. had a kiss for Mrs. John S. Doud, his mother- in-law, immediately upon his arrival at Lowry as he left the car in which Mrs. Doud rode with him and Mrs. Eisenhower from the hospital. Mrs. Doud remained behind, planning to join the presidential family later. Crowd Chilled "To Bone The crowd around the airport was chilled to the bone by the time the President left at 9;02 a.m. as the temperature dropped from 36 degrees at 8:30 a.m. to 31 degrees. A crowd of several thousand turned out to bid farewell to the beaming President along the six- mile drive from the hospital to the air strip at Lowry. Riding in a big black limousine with Mrs. Eisenhower and Mrs. Doud. the President waved a, greeting all along the way. Perhaps the. biggest crowd was out in front of the Colorado Women's College, where the student body was out in force. In line was a ; car carrying Dr. Paul Dudley White of Boston, eminent heart specialist, who has headed Eisenhower's team" of physicians; Maj. Gen. Howard M.
