(UP)— A big truck hit a car on U.S. 50 one mile east of here Wednesday and killed its driver, Peter Wahl, 84, North Vernon. State police said Wahl drove out of a Jennings County road into the conference without Adenauer's full: approval. I The ramrod-straight old man- he will be 82 years old on Jan. 9— is the most forceful figure at the conference- table. And he speaks for Europe's most prosperous, and potentially most powerful country. Adenauer set the tone for the NATO meeting right at its start. President Eisenhower and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles had gone to Paris thinking of the establishment of missile bases in Western Europe as the chief issue. Inserts New Question But Adenauer put first the question of trying to find out just what measure of sincerity, if any, there may be in Soviet Russia's "peace offensive" — the letters which Premier Nikolai A. Bulganin addressed, in advance of the NATO meeting, to its leaders and to the leaders of all countries which belong to the United Nations. Adenauer NATO countries use normal diplomatic channels to sound out the Soviet government on any specific ideas it might have for East-West talks to ease the cold war tension. Dispatches from Paris soon be- is being worked out. , But undoubtedly the sounding out of Russia will come first in carrying out of any agreement.
