It was the gravest crisis in the eight-year history of the Atlantic organization. France called for an emergency meeting of the NATO foreign ministers to consider the situation, and a meeting of the permanent council of NATO was summoned for Saturday at its Paris headquarters to lay the foundation for such a meeting.

Solberg, a member of the Purdue University faculty, urged the committee to give the boiler board extra money to hire four deputy inspectors. Solberg said Indiana has only one inspector to check 50,000 boilers and "pressure vessels" registered in the state. Some of the boilers are inspected by insurance companies, he said., He warned that "buildings at Purdue and Indiana Universities, including fraternity and sorority houses, have boilers that are left ; uninspected.

"Surprised NATO Meeting Britain and the United States said they were acting to beat Russia to the punch, but the arms' shipments over French protest gravely strained Atlantic solidarity and threatened to bring down the government of Premier Felix Gaillard. The sudden British - American decision to arm Tunisia caught the NATO meeting by surprise. Sen. Theodore Francis Green (R-R.I.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told correspondents: "This is not the proper way of treating an ally. I firmly believe that France should have -been consulted." Rep. Wayr\e L. Hays (D-Ohio) termed the Washington decision a "stupid and sterile policy."

They believe the Tunisian arms would be used to help the Algerian rebels, and fiery Gaullist Party leader Michele Debre said French .public opinion would not permit French soldiers to "be killed by Allied bullets." The Kremlin moved quickly to cash in on the crisis that has rocked the very foundations of the 8-year-old North Atlantic Alliance. It said the United States was trying to make Tunisia dependent on it in a move to grab North Africa for itself. Killian Takes Over As U. S. Missile Chief WASHINGTON (UP)—President Eisenhower today swore in his new scientific chief of staff, Dr. James R. Killian Jr., and charged him with mobilizing the nation's with Russia. One of Killian's first jobs was to clarify his authority and responsibility and his ro!e in military missiles development. Informed sources said Jiis job so far has only, been broadly outlined. The President has made it clear, however, that the 53-year-old president of Massachusetts Institute of Technology will have a big voice in guiding the administration's policy decisions.

It is an attempt by the government to get the people buying again. Top economists said in New York that the action indicates that inflationary pressures in the economy have eased.

PAID IN FULL LOS ANGELES (UP)— A little girl, whose gnawing conscience got the best, of her, sent a letter to the city park Eind recreation commission with 10 cents enclosed. The unsigned letter said: "Dear, Sirs, this is 10- cents 1 didn't pay at 'the pool because I posed as a girl under 12. Once my girlfriend paid for me like :hat, The other time I did it under those circumstances." Navy Cmdr. John Mirabito, chief meteorologist at Operation Deep Freeze headquarters here, explained it was too cold at the bottom of the world for snowflakes. Mirabito, 40, of Hyde Park, Mass., said precipitation in Antarctica takes the form of feathery ice crystals which in the past centuries have built up the 5,000- foot high ice pack. Mirabito, who heads a five-man staff of weather forecasters and observers, is responsible for the weather predictions upon which all the .American pilots in the antarctic depend. His - staff includes: • Navy Lt. emographer 3C Bob Fan- ographer 3C Arvil T, Creacy of Gatesville, Tex. Thus far, Mirabito and his staff have been right often enough to remain on. speaking terms with the pilots in the Antarctic. Mirabito, who speaks six languages and* has written numerous books on weather and forecasting, has been with Task Force 43 and Operation Deep Freeze since the planning stage. He said that when the Navy first flew planes into McMurdo there were no weather stations on this side of the antarctic. "We put ships in line between America, McMurdo and at Liv Station, 550 miles to the south. "That's about like flying from New York to St. Louis and Denver .with three weather stations," he said, "On a long range basis," he explained, "what happens, to. weather down here can aid in getting more accurate forecasts as far away as New York and London," he said. He said the movement ;of. air masses around the world is something like the movement of water in a bathtub.. ... "It's .just impossible to disturb part of it without the effects eventually reaching the water in the rest of the tub."-- Whole Lotto Callin v G&in' On That's-, the truth.

OK $122,000 For Longcliff •The state budget committee Friday announced its approval of a $122,000 expenditure at the Logansport state hospital for enlargement of the hospital's sewage disposal plant. Superintendent John Sout.hworth and Business Administrator A. Maines had reported October 4 that they ' were requesting funds for this purpose. The increase in the size of the plant is the first of a three-phase program expected to be carried out over a six: year period to almost double its capacity trom 365,000 gallons a day to 700,000 gallons a day. The plans and specifications were approved a year ago by the State Board of Health. The present .plant is inadequate to handle the peak loads and is being bypassed periodically each day.

A woman was trapped 15 minutes in a house' trailer near Pendleton when wind dropped a power line on it. Instead, Judge Byers sentenced him to 30 years and $5,000 on the first count of the indictment, 10 years and $2,000 on the second count, and 5 years and $1,000 on the third. The prison terms are to run concurrently. Abel, regarded as the most important Russian spy ever arrested in this country, will be sent either to the federal prison at Atlanta, Ga., or the one at Ft. Leavenworth, Kan.- A federal jury found Abel guilty on charges of conspiring to transmit vital U.S. defense and atomic secrets to Russia, conspiring to gather these secrets, and failure to register with the State Department as an agent of a foreign country. Byers could have sentenced Abel to execution in Sing Sing's electric chair or given him'a life sentence on the final count under the provisions of the "Rosenberg" espionage law. Abel t.Dok the lesser, 30-year sentence calmly, displaying the same poker-face expression he wore throughout the trial. Abel's court-appointed attorney, James B.
