SAME DATE-1953-55 (BLACK FI,AG MEANS TRAFFIC DEATH IN PAST II HOURS) Auto Manufacturers V/arn Dealers on 'Bootlegging 7 DETROIT Wt--The presidents of Ford, and General Motors are warning their car dealers against "bootlegging," 'with' hints that offenders may lose their, franchises. Henry, Ford II and GM's Harlow H. Curtice, acknowledging l e s s than' satisfactory conditions in the field, wrote -their thousands :of dealers on the subject Wednesday. Neither said to what specific extent the 'practice was being engaged ia. However, Curtice said it w«« spreading "in an alarming teshion." There has been no like action by Chrysler, , third member of the atito industry's "Big Three." Curtice denounced'bootlegging as a "malignancy" and a threat to the car business. Bootlegging is the wholesaling by franchised dealers of new cars to used car retailers who sell them at less than the list price." Protests by franchised dealers reportedly prompted^ the National Automobile Dealers Association to appeal to manufacturers to put a halt to bootlegging. S E C R E T A R Y DULLES Lost Nothing Dulles Says WASHINGTON , Mi-Secretary of State Dulles has assured the nation it lost nothing at Berlin and gained much-- including a chance -o bring Red China "before the bar of world opinion." Dulles, who returned five days ago from the month-long Big Four alks, told a. nationwide radio-television audience Wednesday night: "You may ask whether it was vorthwhile to go to Berlin . . . My answer is 'yes 1 and I have no doubt about that.' Two Results He said two results will pro- cm ndly influence the future: 1. Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. ·Tolotov was forced by the U.S., Drench and British delegates "to how Russia's' hand" -- a hand vhich Dulles said hung on to all t had, including East Germany and East Austria, and grabbed for more. 2. Molotov gave in, at the last lour in a "concession . . . not to be gnored," and signed a ; declaraUon pelling out U.S. refusal to recog- lize Red China. , Strong Point It was this point ~ America's ong-withheld diplomatic recogni- ion of Communist China -- which Dulles hit time and again. His half- lour speech, besides domestic adio-TV coverage, ; was beamed Iso in 33 languages to both sides f the'Iron'Curtain. _His report to the nation climaxed is campaign to convince critics nywhere t h a t t h e Communist vorld was not "appeased" in ar- angements agreed upon at Berlin or the holding April 26 of an 'isian peace conference at Geneva, witzerland, and in a lack of prog- ess on the German and Austrian uestions. "The Communist regime will not ome to Geneva to be honored, but ather to account before the bar f Avorld opinion,"- he said.

Stevens wa reported Thursday to be steamin with anger over interpretations o his agreement with Sen. McCarth as a "capitulation." His office an the White House acknowledge they had had telephone exchange on the matter. Stevens denied, however, a re port that he was asking a publi expression of support from Presi dent Eisenhower and was prepare to resign if he didn't get it. This report came from a sourc close to the secretary. When an Associated Press dis patch to this effect was shown t Stevens he authorized an aide t deny it "categorically." Position to Know The source of the original repor could not be reached immediately He is in a position to know wha has gone on behind the scenes. Stevens was closeted w i t h group of top advisers when the AP dispatch was sent in to him. John F. Kane, a civilian aide came out and told reporters he was authorized to deny "categori cally" that the report was correct In the early afternoon, it ap peared that Stevens still was con sidering what course to take. At lunch time, waiters took twc trays of food into his office. At tha point, aides said the seceretar} bad no appointments for the after noon, either at the Pentagon o outside. During the morning, Gen.

Persons, deputy as- istant to the President, but did lot talk with Eisenhower himself. Hagerty would not elaborate on he conference. Another White House caller was ecretary of the Air Force Talbott. Asked whether he bad talked to Eisenhower about' the · Stevens-Mcarthy lied: controversy, Talbott re' I don't want to discuss it at Because of the high place of the ource which originally reported 'tevens wanted a presidential ex- resssion of support, or else vould resign, there appeared to e grounds for belilef this had at east been discussed. Original Report The original report was to the ffect that Stevens had informed Virile House officials he would in- ist on one of the two following ourscs of action: 1-- A statement from the Presi- ent that Eisenhower 'agrees with tevens that he did not "capitu- ate" during Wednesday's secret ession with McCarthy on the ucstion of calling Army officers or testimony in McCarthy's · in- uiry into what he calls the rmy's "coddling of Communists." 2-- Agreement from the President lat Stevens can say in a statement that Eisenhower is in full greement with the secretary's potion.

Say Syrian Chief Also Thrown Out BEIRUT, Lebanon (/Pi--One of the Middle East's "strong men"--Gen. Mohamed Naguib of Egypt--was squeezed out Thursday and another--President Adib Shishekiy of Syria-was on a'shaky seat. Egypt's ruling Revolutionary Council dropped Naguib as president and premier of the young republic on charges that he was trying to pull Egypt "back to absolute dictatorship." To replace him as premier, the council named hard-boiled LI. Col. Gamal Abdel Nasser, the driving force behind the army coup that ousted King Farouk from the throne 19 months ago. In Syria, Radio Aleppo said a large section of the Syrian army had revolted against Shishekiy. An earlier Aleppo broadcast, heard in Lon*don, claimed--without confirmation --Shishekiy had been overthrown, broadcasts from Damascus, the Syrian capital, made no mention of any kind of trouble whatever.

The President made known this ecision in a formal statement. At he same time the White House made public a letter to Prime Minster Nehru of India assuring him hat "this step does not In any T ay affect the friendship we feel or India." Quite the contrary," the Pres- dent said in" the letter delivered o Nehru by Ambassador George '; Allen. "We will'. continually strive to .rengthen the warm and endur- ng friendship between our two ountries." The decision to give aid to Paki- an was taken under authority ranted by the foreign aid law nd requires no further congres- onal sanction. Indian .leaders had been highly ritical of the idea previously dis- ussed, of giving military aid to heir neighbor. One obvious rea- on -was the · possibility that 'it ould tip the scales in that part of sia to India's disadvantage. ; The next step will'be to senda ission to Pakistan ·; to determine ic exact needs of 'that country. tiis" will be done shortly, the 'hile House said. Plan Study of Rifle Bullets May Link Suicide to lowan's Death RICHMOND, Calif. WV-Bullets from a suicide's rifle were enroute to St. Paul, Minn., Thursday for checking in an investigation of the unsolved slaying near Brainerd, Mian., in 1950 of Eugene Stolze, 27, Davenport, losva, while he was vacationing. Police Inspector Darrell Davis said they were from a .22 rifle with which Donald Irvin Guin, 42, killed himself Tuesday after telling his wife he had "killed a man in Minnesota" about four years ago. The bullets, which Davis fired from'Guin's rifle, were airmailed to Crow Wing County Sheriff Roy Wickland at Brainerd, who said he planned to compare them with a slug which killed Eugene Stolze. Stolze's body was found 23 miles northeast of Brainerd Sept. 23 1950. He was engraving departmen foreman.for the .Davenport, Iowa Times. Davis quoted the suicide's wife Willa, as saying Guin had boastec a few months ago that he had killed a man.

At St. Paul, the Minnesota Crime Bureau said it requested the hair from Guin's head to compare it with hair found in Stolze's car which was found abandoned in a Duluth _parking lot several days after his disappearance. em districts of Syria had seized Aleppo, largest city in the coun- ry, and declared open rebellion under the leadership of Col. Mus- '.afa Hammoud. Calling Shishekiy "a tyrant, oppressor and slave of the imperialists," the broadcast said Hammoud had given the president an ultimatum to resign by Thursday night and leave the country within 24 hours, Not Arr«sf*d An official source insisted Naguib is not under formal arrest nor have any charges been placed against him. The Egyptian chief's ouster was announced following a heated session of the 11 young army officers making up the council that has ruled Egypt since the ouster of Farouk. ^ A council communique declared Naguib was suffering from "a psychological crisis 1 ' and reported unanimous acceptance of a resignation it said he had submitted Monday. : .Althougljithe council/ picked Nasr-' ser, who had served as Naguib's deputy premier, to take over the premiership, it left the presidency vacant.
