Thursday Evening, May 23, 1957. Germany's Reunification Big Worry for Adenauer Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's | visit to Washington next week! promises to result in some important agreements on Allied relations with Russia. Adenauer, as the leader of West Germany, has been pretty worried over some developments of the last few months. These include Great Britain's revolutionary new defense policy, which- involves drastic cuts in military manpower, and the possibility that the United States may do some cutting of its own. But Adenauer's biggest worry is that the United States, in its eagerness for a disarmament treaty, may make a deal with Russia at Germany's expense. There was a sensation in Bonn, Adenauer's capital, last week when the Washington correspondents of two responsible West German newspapers reported the United States planned to sponsor a proposal which would put off any hope of German unification for an indefinite period. Demilitarization Reported According to this report, Harold Stassen, President Eisenhower's special disarmament aide, had drawn up a plan for a big demili-1 tarized zone in Central Europe. The plan was supposed to have the approval of the United States «nd British governments. The zone plan, according to the German correspondents, would involve the acceptance by the Western Allies of the continued partition of Germany. Denials of the report came quickly from Washington and from American embassies in Western European capitals. Adenauer was attending the annual congress of his Christian Democratic Party in Hamburg at the time. He was naturally •larmed. Officially, the denials quieted Adenauer's fears. He told the party congress he was convinced the "deal" reports were completely false. But there are strong indications that Adenauer is still worried. Adenauer is due to arrivi; In New York by plane Friday. After spending the weekend there, he is to go to Washington Monday for three days of lalks with Eisenhower, Secretary of Slate John Foster Dulles and other high officials. Wants Guarantees He is fairly certain to ask for firm guarantees that Germany will not. be sacrificed in any agreements which the United States, Britain and France may make with Russia. He is likely to sound out Eisenhower and Dulles on the possibility of a Big Four "summit" conference at which Eisenhower would meet Soviet Premier Nikolai A. Bulganin, British Prime Minister Harold Maomillan and anybody who happens to be premier of France at the time. Adenauer naturally will want to be assured that Germany's interests will be protected fully at any Big Four meeting as well as in the current United Nations disarmament meeting in London. To him, and to all German?, the issue of their country's unification .'s the biggest one. He is aware also thai, as a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, West Germany would be in the front line in event of war with Russia. Ike to Rely On Public in Budget Battle President Shows No Signs of Retreating in His Struggle With Congressional Economy Bloc WASHINGTON (UP)—President Eisenhower today planned to continue his stepped up drive to carry his fight for his budget to the people. An informed source said the Chief Executives plans to defend his budget in every speech he makes between now and the time Congress finishes work on the budget. The President stowed his determination to buck economy-minded congressmen when he. said at his press conference Wednesday that "as long as I am in a fight, I never rest." He said he will "never stop" until he achieves what he and his administration believe "to be necessary for the operation of this government, for the protection of ourselves in this critical world, and for the waging of peace." Wilson Makes Appeal In other developments on the budget: —Secretary ot Defense Charles E. Wilson prepared to carry Eisenhower's fight against military budgcl cuts to Congress. He was expected to ask the Senate Defense Appropriations Subcommittee lo restore $1,300,000,000 of $2,586,775,000 in cuts made last Tuesday by the House Appropriations Committee. ' —Sen. Richard B. Russell (-D- Ga.) said he saw -"no validity" to Eisenhower's argument that a cut in U.S. military aid to foreign nations would result in more draftees and longer terms of U.S. military service. But Russell said "I don't suggest that we do away with military assistance." —Speaker Sam Rayburn indi- dicated he will call off a Democratic drive to cut taxes this year. But he predicted that Congress would cut taxes next year. —The Senate approved a $16,010,370 budget for the White House and several small agencies—$4,911,000 less than requested by the President. Eisenhower has made two radio- television defenses of his record peacetime budget in the past 10 days and has indicated he may make a third. Press Secretary James C. Hagerly said Wednesday the response to Eisenhower's defense of his foreign aid program Tuesday night has been "really quite amazing."

IrfUJtBUVpUKfc, ItHlHftlHt, nuUlWJLlUAlDV IlHJW Sergeant Acquitted of "Peeping Tom" Slaying Of Chinese Officer TAIPEI (UP)— A U.S. military court-martial today acquitted M.Sgt. Robert G. Reynolds, 42, of the peeping Tom slaying of a Chinese Nationalist officer. The decision, reached after one hour and 35 minutes of deliberations, was greeted by an enthusiastic outbreak of applause by Americans in the courtroom but appeared to have caused Chinese resentment. Reynolds, of Colora, Md., shot and killed Liu Ohi-Jan outside his hoin<j the night of March 20 after he found him peeking through a bathroom window at his wife, Clam; 36, as she dried herself after taking a shower. Reynolds pleaded innocent to voluntary manslaughter charges and said he shot at Liu when he raced outdoors and Liu came at him with what he thought was a weapon. It was the first trial of an American serviceman for the shooting of a Chinese. It came during negotiations between American and Chinese officials for a status of forces agreement which would give Nationalist courts the right to try "off duty" cases of American military personnel. A general court-martial board of five colonels and three master sergeants ruled that the baldish, brown-haired Reynolds, a U.S. Calf, Lamb Tour May 28 / Six Cass county farms will be visited during the 4-H beef calf and lamb toar beginning at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Gus Thias, county agent, said today.

Emmerl said the 1.937 act had been used by some manufacturers and retailers lo "fix prices for every retailer in Indiana" on certain products.
