THE SUNDAY LOGANSPORT PUBLIC LIBRARY LOGANSPORT PRESS ALL PHONES 4141 UNITED PRESS LOGANSPORT, INDIANA, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1957- THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PRICE TEN CENT! US-BRITAIN MOVE TO STOP SPACE COMMIES Alliance Of 50 Nations Is Planned LONDON W—The United States and Britain Saturday ni«ht were reported shaping up plans for banding together about 50 nations in a worldwide campaign to block the spread of space-age communism. Senior diplomats here said this proposed new global diplomatic strategy would be' charted on a long range assumption — on the possibility that the Soviet Union could prolong the cold war until the next century. The United States and Britain evidently hope to align like-minded countries under the umbrella of their nuclear power, the informants said, and to win pledges from them that they will cooperate in political, economic and military efforts to beat Russia's Sputnik-paced challenge. In the world girdling hookup, at least four regional defensive alliances would be jointed, they are the 15-nation Atlantic Pact, the 5- nation Baghdad Pact, the 8-member Southeast Asian Treaty Organization and the 21-state Pan American Alliance. But the diplomats insisted there is no intention to set up any formal new. 50-member treaty spelling o:it the commitments of the powers. Even the idea of a conference of the 50 - odd countries with which the United States has treaties has been rejected. That is because Washington and London want to avoid any suggestion that they are trying to build up a rival to the U. N., the informants said. The idea instead is to draw all the West's regional groupings together, to create continuing liaison machinery between them and to pull in other friendly states which do not belong to any formal alliance. Launch New Stage The purpose is to launch a new stage in the political-military-economic cooperation of the non- Communist world. Scope of the plan is vast. It ranges from defining conditions for massive nuclear retaliation against an aggressor to standardization of most types of war materials. American and British specialists are preparing the proposals for submission to the 15 heads of the Atlantic Pact governments who meet in Paris next month. This conference will be followed by high level meetings of the five power Baghdad pact and the eight - power Southeast Asian Treaty Organization. In Washington State Department officials recalled that Secretary Dulles had discounted at his news conference last week the possibility of forming an over-all alliance in a single organization. This also has been the line taken privately by top American officials here since the meeting between President Eisenhower and Prime Minister Macmillan last month. Dulles mentioned NATO, the Baghdad Pact, Southeast Asia Treaty Organization, Inter-American Alliance and various two-way arrangements such as the treaty between the United States and Japan. Diplomats say the State Department in Washington and the Foreign Office in London are working independently on the plans, which were decided upon in principle last month by President Eisenhower and Prime Minister Macmillan. Some of the tentative ideas already have been exchanged between the two countries and submitted to France, West Germany and other governments involved. Paul- Henry Spaak, secretary general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization has been acting as a sort of middle man for the continental allies in these exchanges.

Roland Guilkey, Hamilton county sheriff, said Leydet was apparently en route to Indianapolis when he lost control of the car after negotiating a curve while traveling south on US 31, just north of Indianapolis.. The Hamilton county sheriff said the car started sliding sideways and went off the highway on the right side.

The tree, the sheriff said, was about 16 inches in diameter. Leydet was pinned in the car beneath the seat and dash for 45 minutes before he was freed, the sheriff said. A wrecker was used to pull the car away from the tree, and the victim was pried out of the wreckage with crowbars. The right middle of the car struck Jhe tree, Guilkey said, wrapping the vehicle around it. Guilkey said the,curve was not sharp, but said it was rather long. The sheriff also said the wind was strong at the time and could have been responsible for the wreck, The pavement also was wet. Born July 14, 1921, in Logansport, he was the son of Charles M. and Winifred (Rhoades) Leydet.

Into Missiles If Home Spending Is Cut—Byrd WASHING-TON W — Sen. Byrd, ,(D-Va), said Saturday the nation can pour an additional two billion dollars into mis=ile rfe^icn- ment without unbalancing the budget if President Eisenhower will cut "nonessential" domestic spending. Byrd, chief spokesman for congressional economy advocates, voiced the opinion in an interview that "Congress will be 'anxious and willing to increase any appropriation .that will be necessary" to put this country into the lead over Russia in space weapons. "If it is necessary to appropriate an additional-two billion dollars to get this program going full blast, I am sure Congress will do what it is asked to do in that particular field," Byrd said. "The additional expenditures would not have to unbalance the budget if President Essrjiowerj would just follow the pattern of appropriations reductions made by Congress and reduce spending in some nonessential domestic fields." • ' Sen. Chavez (D-NiM), called the missile-sattelite program laid out by Eisenhower "inadequate" and said he hoped the new secretary of defense, Neil MoElroy, will "make immediate decisions and avoid further duplications." Chavez criticized former Defense Secretary Charles E. Wilson for overlooking the intelligence reports that forecast -a Russian tech- of a new department of jcienct and technology headed by a Cabinet officer. In the House, Rep. Davis (D-Ga.) called for a strong federal authority to bring "some order" to the defense effort, which he said had been marked by wasteful use ol scientific manpower both w and out of government. Davis thus summed up a wee* of hearing by a civil service subcommittee on manpower utilization which he heads: "It seems a fair assumption nological break-through in the rnis-i that if we cou!9 take up the slack sile race. He said Wilson "wasjaud properly utilize our scientist! willing to sacrifice the security and engineers on a nationwide b»- of our people on the false altar of! sis, we would save for critical budget economy."
