S. recognition or United Nations membership at the Geneva conference with paper promises of future good behavior. At the same time he accused the Chinese Reds of backing aggression in Indochina with the goal of dominating all southeast Asia. He called on the free world for ''united action'' to meet the threat despite "serious risks" that might be involved. He said without elaboration that serious though these risks may be, they "are far less than those that will face us a few years from now," if the free world fails to act. Dulles dehveied his major policy speech on Red China and the Indochina war before the Overseas Press Club here. His address, approved in advance by President Eisenhower, was carried to the nation by radio and television and to the woild by the radio "Voice of America." Dulles sought to spike congressional fears that Communist China will win U S. recognition and U.N. membeiship at the forthcoming conference, now scheduled to start April 26. The Peipmg legime is expected to demand these steps m retuin for a Far Eastern, peace. Dulles said the U.S. delegation ·will go to the conference in hopes of -winning a united and independent Korea. He also said this country hopes the Chinese Reds will "see the danger of their apparent design for the conquest of southeast Asia" and "cease and desist." "We shall not, however, be dis- j posed to give Communist China what it wants from us, merely to buy its piomises of futuie good behavior," he declared. He said Russia has a history of bioken promises and the Communists have -violated the Korean armistice 40 times. "It would be reckless for us to ignoie the events of recent years which have filled our archives with vain promises," Dulles said. "We are not in the market for more." Some congi essional critics, including leading Republicans, have expressed fear the Geneva meeting gives implied recognition to the Peipmg government. Dulles, who has denied this repeatedly, said again, "The Chinese Communist regime has been invited only to discuss Korea and Indochina, where it is in fact a force of aggression which we cannot ignore. "It gets no diplomatic recognition from us by the fact of its presence at Geneva."

The measure, expected to win swift House and Senate approval tomorrow, was a compromise between the 912 million dollar excise tax cut bill passed by the House and the 51,034,000,000 measure approved by the Senate. Senate GOP Leader William F. Biil Proposes To Outlaw Reds In U. S. Services WASHINGTON, March 29 (UP) --Rep. Carl Vmson, top Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, introduced legislation today to make it a crime for a member of the armed forces to be a Communist Party member. ' His was the most drastic of several recent proposals for dealing with the problem of Reds in the military--an issue spotlighted by Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R- Wis). Atty. Gen. Herbert Brownell Jr. now is considering a staff report on proposals for new general anti- Communist legislation. He is expected to give his recommendations to President Eisenhower m a week or so. Brownell was asked by the President to consider %'anous proposals to "outlaw the Communist Party." There was no indication what specific recommendations he will make or whether he will touch, on Reds in the military. Under Vmson's bill, membership in the Communist Party or any other organization seeking forceful overthrow of the government would be a crime under the code of military justice, punishable by court- martial. Maximum punishment would be set by the President. The measure also would make it a crime to conceal past Communist Party membership. But Communists would not necessarily escape all military service. Under the bill they could be put into some form of special service. Vmson suggested making them laborers. Known Communists inducted for special service would apparently escape criminal charges, although the bill itself did not make this clear. Vmson, of Georgia, said "I feel confident the bill will be approved by the House Armed Services Committee," which he formerly headed. He said it would cover civilians serving with the armed forces as well as military personnel. McCarthy, chairman of the Senate's investigating subcommittee, brought the issue of communism in the military to a head in the case of Irving M. Peress, a New York dentist who refused to answer loyalty questions. S CHINE GRADUATES--Controversial Pvt. G.

A joint and the civilian cabinet decided on the about-face which canceled Naguib's announcement of last Thursday that the country would be turned back to civilian politicians. It was a triumph for Vice Premier Gamal Abdel Nasser, who opposed the speedy dissolution of the military group on the grounds that corrupt politicians might regain power. Naguib agreed to the reversal as three days of street demonstrations and labor strikes were climaxed in the fatal riot. An estimated 500 demonstrators beat Council President Abdel Raz- suggested March 26 as premier of the first all-civilian cabinet. In the fighting that followed, civilian and military police killed two and injured two others.

WASHINGTON, March 29 (UP)---A second hydrogen bomb ! test was carried out successfully at this^country's Pacific prov- I ing grounds last Friday. Chairman Le%vis L. Strauss of the ! Atomic Energy Commission announced today. 1 Strauss, who returned from the Pacific only this morning, j said in a statement that the test series is producing "informa- juon highly important to national defense." The AEC chairman d;i net elaborate on the new H-bomb test. There was no indication how the new explosion compared with the March 1 hydrogen blast which was so powerful that one congressman saio. "you almost might say it was out of control." Members of the Jo-.i. congressional A t o m i c Committee, were advised of the new test late today, said they understood ' it not as big as the last one ' The committee probably will receive a. more complete report at a secret session previously called for tomor- rov. Strauss emphasized, however, that utmost care was taken against any repetition of the earlier bias* which showered Japanese fishermen and others with, radioactive dust far from the test site. He said that before the blast was set off, Naval and Air Force units attached to the atomic task force "carefully searched the area both visually and by raoar. No shipping was discovered in the area." In line with AEC policy, Strauss Israelis Admit Raid on Jordan; 9 Arabs Killed JERUSALEM, March 29 (UP)-Armed Israeli invaders of Jordan attacked the village of Nahalm near Bethlehem today and by official Joraan count killed nine Arabs and wounded 17. ,, Jordan charged that a task fcrce of 200 Israeli troops struck two miles beyond the border, shot up and mined the village, and fought a running gun battle with Arab Legionnaires. The defenders were credited with inflicting "heavy but undetermined casualties" on the raiding foice which was dm en back to Israel. The raid jolted the uneasy armistice in the Holy Land.

Thermonuclear is the word used by scientists for H-bomb tests. The March 1 blast, whose destructive force amazed weaponers, sprinkled 379 persons, including a number of Japanese fishermen, with ' hot' radioactive dust, causing minor radiation injuries. To prevent any repetition, the Navy vastly enlarged the danger area. Freak winds and weather conditions were blamed for scope of radioactive cloud thrown up by the March 1 explosion.
