GOP Names Schoeppel Chairman Member Selection Is Announced for Some Committees WASHINGTON (AP) J- Rcpublican senators today, named Sen, Andrew F. Schoeppel of Kansas, a member of the conservative wing, as chairman of the powerful Committee on Committees which .determines .assignments on the standing committees. The conference of the 34 GOP senators put off until next week a decision whether to install Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona, another conservative, as their campaign chairman for the 1960 election fight. Sen. Leverett Saltonstall of Massachusetts, the conference chairman, said the postponement was made because there was an objection to changing the rules on the campaign chairmanship without a week's notice. It was understood Sen. William Langer of North Dakota made the objection. Approved by Conference Saltonstall also announced his selection of members of the Policy •nd Patronage committees. These were approved by the conference today. A proposal to ebangt the rulei, made by Sen. Bourk«, B. Hickenlooper of Iowa, would havt senators up for election in 1960 make one or more nominations for the campaign committ** chairmanship. The conference then would decide, but no nomination! could be made other than those submitted by the 11 Benaton running next year.

(AP Photofax) CRITICISM MOUNTS Castro Contends Purge Necessary HAVANA, Cuba (AP) — Rebel leader Fidel Castro contends the executions springing from his civil war victory are necessary to purify Cuba after six years of dictatorial rule. The future course of the revolutionary purge was a subject of conflicting statements, but Castro made clear in a speech Tuesday night he considers the shooting of "war criminals" justified. Amid mounting criticism abroad, rebel firing squads have executed more than 150 persons on charges of murder, torture and other high crimes during the regime of President Fulgencio Batista, who fled two weeks ago. It is estimated 3,000 others face summary court trials, many of which have been held in fecret. Castro, now chief of tht Cuban armed forces, took note of an adverse reaction within the United States in his speech to the Havana Lions Club. "Why didn't the Americans attack when the Batista government was executing people en masse?" he asked. Those who have killed now were executed to demonstrate that they could not get away with murder and crimes against the people, Castro said. A similar defense had been offered in a press statement by the provisional government's foreign minister, Roberto Agramonte.

The whole German situation is under intensive review in the State Department in preparation for new exchanges on the subject with the Soviet government. President Eisenhower and Secretary of State Dulles expect to discuss Germany, including Berlin and the reunification problem, in talks with Soviet Deputy Premier Anastas I. Mikoyan Friday and Saturday. Dulles gave the tipoff on possible modification of the U. S. stand at a news conference Tuesday. He said reunification of East and West Germany through free elections—the formula the Allies have backed for years—is not the only method by which East and West Germany could be merged. But he declined under questioning to specify what other methods were possible. West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer has always opposed any alteration of this formula. The Soviet government—in spite of an apparent agreement to such elections at Geneva in 1955—has insisted on a merger worked out directly between the East and West German regimes. The end result of current State Department discussions, subject to consultation with the European Allies, could be some innovations in United States and Western policy, or a new decision to stand firm on present policies. Apart from the discussions with Mikoyan, the United States and other Western nations face the necessity of replying soon to the Soviet proposal for a peace conference on Germany to meet in March. This proposal and. a Soviet suggested treaty draft are sure to be rejected by the Allies. I Say, Old Chap, It's a Bit Foggy LONDON (AP)-Twenty automobiles' crashed in one pile-up.

Freeman. Appearing personally before a joint session of the Senate and House, the governor also presented a program for tax reform, including income tax withholding.

PAUL (AP) - A bill to raise maximum weekly benefits under the workmen's compensation law from $45 to $140 was ready for introduction in the Min-, nesota House of Representatives! today by Rep. D. D. Wozniak of St. Paul. The law sets up a scale of benefits for workmen injured on the job. The law now provides for benefits up to two-thirds of weekly earnings, with a maximum of $45 a week.
