Russia proposed through Bul- ganin's message Dec. 10 and Jan. 9.- that Eisenhower and the other Western government heads agree to a top level meeting by April 9. 2. The U.S., British, and French [overnments quickly agreed that such a hastily called conference without adequate preparation would produce nothing except a sounding-board for Soviet propaganda. Therefore, they were against it, as Secretary of State Dulles made clear at a news con- :erence Friday. 3. The Western powers have agreed that the best way to start news talks with Russia is through a foreign ministers' meeting preceded by some exploratory work :hrough diplomatic channels. 4. However, the Soviet Communist party newspaper Pravda carried an article Saturday rejecting :he informal Western suggestions so far made for a foreign ministers' meeting. It held that such a meeting "would be more likely to heap fresh obstacles in the way of a summit conference." 2 Dead In Chemical Plant Fire EVAXSVTLLE, Ind.

Blood Unit Here Friday The Red Cross bloodmobile will pay its first visit of 1958 to Cass county Friday when it will be stationed at the Baptist Temple, Seventh and Broadway, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Cass county's quota is 127 pints, but last month the unit from Ft. Wayne left with only 76 pints, after an almost record 146 pints were recorded here in November. The Ft. Wayne region, of which Cass county is a member, reported that 31,666 pints of blood were donated last year, which was a 1,300 gallon gain .over 1956 wihen 29,866 pints were given.

Their pet dog, Flopper, was found dead beside their bodies. "We .were sleeping late," Duke said. "My wife got up to see about the baby and came back to bed. The next thing I knew I woke up and all I could see was flames. "I haven't the slightest idea how the fire started or how we got out of the house." Assistant Fire Chief Arthur James said the fire apparently vote even sooner. Sen. Carlson (R - Kan), senior Republican on the Senate Post Office Committee, told a reporter he is confident the Senate will complete action this year oa a measure raising postal rates. Democratic Senate sources said the same thing, adding that higher rates on letters and other postage probably would be ir. effect by July l. However, the 527 millions of additional revenue which the rate bill now before the Senate committee would bring in would be more than offset by 617 million of pay increases to two other measures ready for Senate action. Sen. Neuberger (D-Ore!. a chief sponsor of the pay bills, said he would push for a vote on them as soon as possible, preferably during January. They were reported to the floor last July. Floor action on the rate bill is expected to come later since the Post Office Committee still has many witnesses waiting to be heard on it. This measure would raise the 3-cent letter rate to 4 cents, post followed an explosion in the pre- carc| s to 3 cents from the present • ' 2, and- air mail to 7 cents from fabricated house in a new development.
