French Foreign Minister, Dulles Meeting Today WASHINGTON (UP)—In a face to face meeting today French Foreign Minister Christian Pineau calls upon Secretary of State John- Foster Dulles to help heal the al- .ied breach over U.S.-British arms shipments to Tunisia. Dulles was expected to point up some of the ground the two will cover at a news' conference this morning. He will hold his first session with Pineau later in the day. The _ United States is eager to ?et things patched up before the '•Jorth Atlantic Treaty Organization meeting in Paris next month, Pineau was reported seeking Dulles' help in bringing about a general French-Tunisian agree- nent on outstanding problems be- ween France and her former protectorate. Means of Ending Crisis Such an agreement could provide the new French government i way out of its near-crisis •rompted by the arms shipments, vhich France fears will help the nationalist rebels in Algeria. Authorities said Dulles probably would react favorably. Pineau said Monday his government wants "to reinforce Atlantic :olidarity that was compromised" i>y the arms shipments. "Never since the war has the Communist Party gained such a victory in France," he said. "French public opinion . is very troubled by this question." • In London British Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd told Parlia- ncnt Communist Czechoslovakia 'iad offered to supply Tunisia with arms. In -Rome, the new Tunisian ambassador to Italy, Habib Bourgui- >a Jr., said Russia had "quietly" offered arms to his country and ''just as quietly" the offer was 'urned down. Bourguiba is the son of Tunisia's president. Dulles and Pineau planned to talk over some of their thinking ibout how to put the new mus- •les into NATO. Dulles and his Adams Denies Ike "Isolated" From "Gripes" CSHICAGO* tup) — Top white House assistant Sherman Adams has denied President Eisenhower is being "isolated" from his duties I to the country, and said the President "knows what the gripes are." The presidential assistant told 1,000 Republicans at a rally Monday that the job of the White House staff is to see to it ' the President of the United States is the best informed person in the world." Disclaiming any policy-mailing role for himself, Adams said his staff "simply serves the desl: of the President," carrying out his wishes. Adams said the term "modern . Republican" is intended to de 'scribe an' "attitude, not a division," saying the proof of the pudding lies in the fact that "the President has put in as much time campaigning for Republicans as any president in history." The former New Hampshire governor said the term signifies only that the party should be "dynamic, forward-looking and courageous" in dealing with current problems. In asserting that the President is 'sensitive to criticism 'about the administration, Adams said "he knows about the gripes concerning the secretary of agriculture, Ezra Taft Benson; about Secretary of State John Foster Dulles' and the various things people don't like about foreign policy...taxes...national defense ... missiles ... and Board Asks Rules For Driving Range , Dick Nethercutt and Fred'WoKe udes have been thinking about'a | were notified Monday evening to umber of ideas such as building ip rc p are a se t of rule and regu- ew missile bases abroad, stor- . - . ig more nuclear warheads and ombs i nNATO countries under r.S. control for quick transfer to lilies in case of war, setting up T missile school in Europe, broadening the NATO council's field of liscussion to get better western Points Out Needs of UF Dale McNutt, chairman of the Cass county United Fund drive, warned Monday that allocations for the 12 UF agencies will have to be reduced if the goal of $107,350 is not reached.
