' Largely a figurehead forbidden bergs. This is not the reaction of to mix in international affairs, the Communists, Schoenbrun reported, French president made known his feelings in a letter addressed to acting Foreign Minister Georges Bidault. The letter was shown to U. S. Ambassador C. Douglas Dillon yesterday by Bidault. Dillon passed on the comment to Eisenhower via the State Department, the sources said. The embassy confirmed that Dillon saw Bidault yesterday and did not deny that the Rosenberg case came up. Others Ask, loo A number of French political »nd intellectual leaders have recommended clemency for the Rosen- bergs through letters and cables to President Elsenhower, or petitions left at the embassy in Paris. CBS Radio Correspondent David Schoenbrun reported to his New York headquarters from here last night that Auriol—via Bidault and Dillon—had suggested to Eisen- Eisenhower that the Rosenbergs' death sentences be commuted "in the best interests of the United States." Schoeribrun said the French President was undoubtedly moved to take this unpredented action by the excitement and interest in France over the fate of the Rosen- L/TTLf LIZ— c Many a man who has embarked Ion the sea of matrimony • hos I wished later on that h* hod missed •Itwboot. •»»» but of anti-Communists who believe the best course lies in clem' ency since they feel that the execution of the Rosenbergs would make martyrs of them and serve the cause of the Communist propa^ gandists.

(If) — What Would you say if you found a telephone in leading hotel that had bright nickel-plated slots for nickels, dimes, quarters, half dollars and silver dollars? Here's what S. Bert Hardin, 74, said: "That'! a 1912 mode magneto-powered coin telephone — the first coin phone ever built." Hardin went to work for the telephone company here March 20, 1900. when Dallas had 2,459 telephones. Today there are 270,154 within the city limits. Hardin and other old timers met recently in the 30th annual convention of the Telephone Pioneers of America's Lone Star chapter. The first coin phone was on exhibit. 'Cost about five times as much to call nl those days." Hardin said. TO CONSUMERS ELECTRIC POWER PLANT TURBINE HERE'S ATOM-POWERED ELECTRIC PLANT—Diagram above shows an atomic energy reactor that can produce electricity for peacetime use. It is a proposed "pilot plant" designed by North American Aviation at its Downey, Calif., plant for the Atomic Energy Commission. Atomic fission in the reactor (left) produces heat. This is absorbed by liquid metal (1) passing through the reactor core. The hot liquid metal is then piped (2) to a water boiler where steam is produced. The steam drives a turbine generator, producing electricity. Cooled liquid metal is returned (3) to the reactor core. Control rods (4), usually of cadmium, are the "throttle" of atomic pile. They prevent chain reaction from'running wild. This proposed atomic energy plant, which would cost an estimated $10 million, could produce 8000 killowatts of electricity, enough to supply 2000 homes. Korean Vet Must Wait to Get Army War Dog He Served With By STAN CARTER Tokyo (IP) — The man and the dog came to depend upon each other in the cold no man's land of Central Korea. The Army war dog is Stark, a big grey German shepherd..The man is his trainer, Max E. Meyers of Greenwood. Neb. They went on patrols last winter in the old Iron Triangle area of the Central Front. Stark would hear a sound In the woods off to the left of the patrol. He didn't growl or make a noise. but he stiffened and strained at his leash. Meyers gave the word then to the rest of the patrol that Reds were waiting in ambusn. The infantrymen credited mark and the other dogs of the Eighth Army's scout dog platoon with saving many lives. The dogs' handlers, like Meyers, all gre wto love their dogs. But last December Meyers went home for discharge, and Stark was turned over to another master. Later Meyers learned that Stark was to be retired. He wrote Gen. Mark Clark, chief of the Far East Command in Tokyo, saying he wanted to buy Stark and give him a home on his farm. Clark answered — reluctantly— that Stark would have to remain In the Army a little longer. The general has written Meyer that Stark is on the way irom Korea to Camp Kobe, Japan, for a month of rest, after which he will be retrained for sentry duty at an installation in Japan. He promised Meyers, however, that his desire to purchase Stark will be recorded in the dog's .service record. When the time comes for Stark's discharge, Clark said, Meyers will be given an opportunity to bid on him. Read Courier News Classified Ads.
