NEW YORK (#1 — The Fire Department has convincing evidence that a Times Square tavern's Christmas window display was a fire hazard;. In what Chief Fire Marshal Martin Scott later called a "usual inspection, routine," Fireman Henry Gartland knotted pieces of the display material yesterday and touched them with a lighted match. 'He then snuffed out the test blaze — he thought — and turned to leave the building. Behind his back the whole display/window suddenly burst into flame.

The report, prese'nted to a gen- :ral session of the conference by James D. King of Brownwood Tex., represented the consensus of the nearly 2,000 conference participants. It came up through a series of roundtable discussions: The report said that "consider; ation should be giv.en to the strengthening of the position of the Office of Education in keeping with the importance of education to the It said'the office should be "adequately staffed to perform. the functions it is now performing in making reports on the progress, of education throughout .the nation, in carrying on essential research a c'li v i'ti e s and for providing promptly needed statistical information."

WASHINGTON WV-The United States is expected to protest sharply against Russia's claim it has turned over control of East Berlin to the East German Communist regime.

"Millions of wildly enthusiastic Indians, packed Calcutta's streets and parks to greet the two Kremlin chiefs. The turnout was believed the greatest in India since the funeral of the late Mohandas K.

Solon Doubts Dulles Appeal To Be Heeded WASHINGTON HV-Sen. George (D-Ga) said today he doubts any effective agreement can be made between Republicans and Democrats to. block off 1956 campaign discussion of critical foreign policy issues. "I don't think you can keep- people from talking," he said. "You can't keep any candidate from expressing his opinion. I doubt that it would be practical to try to declare any phase of foreign policy off bounds in the campaign." Secretary of State Dulles told a news conference yesterday he does not exclude the possibility of a later agreement between the two major parties — similar to informal understandings he said had worked very well in 1944 and 1948 — to keep out of the campaign vital issues bearing on security.

Cabinet Due To Act After Vote Defeat : Assembly Could Be Dissolved By Clause Never Applied* Before By HARVEY HUDSON' '. PARIS «V-The''French .Cabinet meets today to decide whether to dissolve the National:Assembly in a rare maneuver which would give Premier Edgar Faure' the early elections Parliament denied hirii. Holding a ; confidence vote on -a procedural question .but actually moving to stave oft. the early/parliamentary balloting, the Assembly gave the ax to^the government last night 31S-28K '. But by: their whopping majority against Faure, the overenthusiastic deputies made it possible for the Cabinet to boot them out of office under a con-- stitutional clause never applicable before. . . . . Mendes-France Was Ousted Article 51, of the 1946 constitution says that when two Cabinets have been thrown , out ,within 18 months by "constitutional, major,- ities"—more than half the Ass,erii- bly's 625 members—the. Cabinet can dissolve the Assembly. Pierre Mendes-France was ousted from the prerriiephip by a 319-273 vote Feb. 5, less than '10 months ago. If the Cabinet decides .to merely- hand in its own resignation, .this would set in motio'n the familiar routine of French politics—presidential consultations, with party leaders, choice of a prospective premier, weeks of dickering to line up Assembly support and eventually announcement of a new Cabinet. Either ;way^ Faure and his,Cabinet will. continue in office;' in a caretaker status. ,,.;=:. Weighing against Assembly dissolution was the constitutional requirement that new ejections be held within 20 to 30 days. That would put the balloting around 'hristmas, a time certain to be unpopular with the voters. Normally Held In June Assembly elections normally would be held next June, but Faure wanted to advance them to early December. Mendes-France, fighting for time to drum up sup- xirt for a comeback attempt, led :he move which thwarted the Premier. There had been talk of an early spring vote as a compromise. The angriest,.voice heard in opposition to the dissolution move f?as that of former Premier Mendes-France, like Faure a Radical-Socialist (Moderate), once his chief supporter but now his bitter rival. In the newspaper L'Express, organ of his political movement, a bellicose .editorial over Mendes- Trance's name declared Faure's entative move to dissolve the assembly as "an affront to the country" and a "bold stroke of force against two assemblies." • The former premier, who 'hopes .0 return to power with-strong eft-of-center backing after the regularly scheduled June, 1956, election, said Faure's action was a 'challenge to republican prin- Quadruplets Born To Farm Woman, Tivo Of Them Die ALMA, Ga. l?v—Two of quadrup- ets born yesterday to a 34-year- ild farm wife died today after an all-night battle to save them.

The legislators will be asked to t in motion th« machinery lor amending the state constitution to permit subsidization of private schools. Virginia is one of seven Southern states that have defied the Supreme Court and ligr.ifitd a desire to find a means of getting around the ..May 1954 ruling abolishing segregation in the public schools. The other states are Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, South Carolina and North Carolina. In Georgia and Mississippi constitutional amendments have been approved that open the door to pooible abolition of public school). But among Virginia legislators 1 there seemed to be a strong undercurrent of feeling for preserving the public school system regardless of the evcntuai legal outcome of "assign" pupils to schools for reasons other than race—health and aptitude, for example.
