Corsi Refuses New Job with State Department Ousted by Dulles, He Has No Plans for Immediate Future WASHINGTON tf) — Edward J Corsi, who was ousted as State Department immigration specialist, today rejected an offer by Secretary of State Dulles of a new job. Corsi, whose old post was abruptly abolished 90 days after he took it, sent Dulles a letter resigning from State Department servibe. His action was announced by Mrs. Corsi at their Arlington, Va., home. Mrs. Corsi said in a statement: • "Mr. Corsi has notified the secretary by letter this morning that IIP regrets his inability to accept the secretary's offer. He has further comment at this time." No* Flans Made Mrs. Corsi said Corsi was resting, almost completely exhausted by the developments of the last few days. She said she and her husband had made no plans for the future but would stay in their rented Arlington home a few weeks "while we catch our breath." . Chairman Leonard W. Hall of (he Republican National Committee has asked Corsi to come see him and talk over the matter. Corsi is a veteran officeholder and GOP party worker in New York State. The job Dulles offered Corsi was one of surveying the possibilities of settling European immigrants in Latin America and other areas. Corsi had held down a double- barreled assignment In the State Department: Special assistant on immigration to Dulles and deputy administrator of the Eisenhower administration's Refugee Relief Act which seeks to admit 214,000 immigrants into the United States by the end of 1956. Job Abolished This job was abolished at a time when Corsi was under fire in Congress. Rep. Walter fD-Pa) questioned whether Corsi should administer admission of immigrants. Walter said Corsi had associated with pro- Communist organizations in the 1930s. Corsi denied there was anything in his record to support Walter's complaints. Corsi is known to believe that Dulles buckled in the face of pressure from Walter to fire him. Corsi has been a longtime outspoken foe of the McCarran-Walter 1952 immigration Act. Corsi, Italian - born, has denounced this legislation as "un- American," because it continues to base immigration quotas on an applicant's "national origin." After meeting with Dulles Friday, Corsi told reporters that Wai- See CORSI on Page 3 Top Young Farmer, Joyce* te, Jaycee Officers to be Honored Ely the ville's Junior Chamber of Commerce will conduct installation of new officers for the club and its auxiliary, the Jaycettes. at a banquet tonight at the Razorback, Bill Hrabovsky will take over as president of t.he organization, .succeeding Frank Harshman.

Westbrook, Jr. May 17 that such segregation violates the Constitution, The court set aside this full week to hear arguments on when and how to order the decision Into effect, although only about three days may be required. The final decree is expected later this spring, but it could be delayed further. Briefs Filed Briefs already filed contain statements ranging from a North Carolina warning that "bloody race riots" might follow a sudden ending of segregation, to n plea by attorneys for Negro parents that integration be ordered into effect by next September or by September 1956 as the "outside date." The final decree will apply specifically to Virginia, South Carolina, Kansas, Delaware and the District of Columbia, the areas directly involved In the decision against segregation. But It also will affect all of the 17 states that maintain separate schools for white and Negro pupils. While much of the South has adopted a wait-and-see policy pending the announcement of the court's decree, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia and South Carolina assert they will continue segregation regardless of what the justices have to say. Question to Be Disncssed The questions the court wants discussed this week boil down to these: 1. Should it decree that Negro children be admitted at once to public schools nearest their homes, or should there be an "effective gradual adjustment" to a system having no color distinctions? 2. Assuming that a gradual change-over were ordered, should the court spell out instructions to each of the defendant states, the District of Columbia and communities? Should it appoint a special master to hear evidence and recommend specific terms for such decrees? Or should it send the cases back to the courts where they originated and instruct them work out detailed decrees? Faure Favors Big 4 Meeting French Minister Hopes for Meeting By Mid-Summer WASHINGTON WV—Premier Edgar Faure of France says he favors a conference "as soon as possible" between the Western Big Three and Russia. Expressing hope that some such session Involving 1 the loreipn ministers of France, Britain, the United States and Russia can be held by July, Faure said in a copyrighted interview with the magazine U.S. News and World Report that he believes the four heads of state should also get together. Meeting Necessary "If we want to achieve results," he said, "we must undoubtedly one day come to a four-power meeting at the highest level." Asked .whether he thinks a real settlement of cold war tensions i.s possible, or whether new talks cnn only continue a stalemate, Faure replied: "I think a true settlement is possible." As for the Far East, Faure .said his government intends to work for "the recognition of Communist China by all the Western Powers together." Like the United States, France does not now recognize the Peiping regime. Great Britain does. E: X-RAY UNIT HERE — Arthur F.

(Courier News IMioto) Salk Tests Results Are Due Tomorrow By ALTON L. BLAKESLEE AP Science Reporter ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The Ing secret of the Salk polio vaccine is set like a time bomb lo go off at 10:20 a.m tomorrow. t. of course. Is how ef- " ^ * *• Jests Reported Very Effective The secret, of course, Is how effective the vaccine was in preventing paralytic polio 'n children tested last year. One man, the University of Michigan's Dr. Thomas Francis Jr., knows the answer after compiling all results of the test. He will not divulge it until Tuesday morning at a meeting of 400 scientists and doctors. He hasn't told Dr. Jonas E. Sulk, Pittsburgh scientist who developed the vaccine, nor E^istl O'Connor, head of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. What Will Happen? What will happen afterward? The question Is put by a well- asked not to be identified. He hns no connection with polio but, speaks from knowledge of the history of insulin, antibiotics and GG (gamma gjobulin) for polio. Suppose the vaccine Is a success. "It could become a test of our moral fiber," he said. "Will it start :i stampede, like a theater liru. to {•el vaccine at any cost'? Will there be boollcK(4i"B, venality? "Or will parents demand intelligent .self-control of themselves and others to insist the vaccine be used where it will do the most Rood to reduce polio—amontf young children and pregnant women" Perfection Not Necessary "Suppose," he continued, "the vriccine is found ineffective, or less than perfect? "How much dismay or loss ol confidence may result? A vaccine can be a success without being sure fire. Can it give control like vaccines against yellow fever or j smallpox, which arc not 100 pel- cent? Fire-proofing buildings doe;; not eliminate all fires, but it does drastically reduce the amount df destruction." Detroit Paper Says Vaccine Is Termed 'Unqualified Success' DETROIT U"r—The Detroit Times quoted an unnamed University of Michigan medical school man today us saying the Salk polio vaccine IK "more than 90 per cent effective" In minimizing or clhn imiting paralysis as a result of the disease. The Times said the medical school source declared the vaccine hits been found "not 100 per cent effective but is so close as to be nulled an unqualified MUTI-MS." At the University of Michigan, where the results of the vaccine tests are lo lie Announced to waiting world tomorrow, there wan no official comment on the newspaper story.

American leaders a very good account of attach great Importance to the Bandung talks, not because of the Issues which will come up but because of the diplomatic maneuvers that will take place In conference corridors, Thn Communists will be one of the principal participants, What happens to them there may have either of two results us au- thorities here analyse the situation: Depends Upon Ucccptlou 1. If the Communists find Ihnt their demands for possession of Formosa and the offshore. Island groups arc generally supported as riyht, then they will be encouraged to use force In realizing claims. The danger of war in tho Formosa Strait would flame high the next week or soon thereafter. 2. If the Chinese Reds find that their threat to use force costs them good will of the African and Asian nations and subjects them to censure, then they may be persuaded to stay their hand. Slender hopes for a negotiated settlement would be substantially enlarged. The conference, with 29 nations expected, will open April 18. it, Is scheduled to run through April 24. American eyes and ears in Ban- dung will be supplied by Ambassador Hugh S. Gumming; Jr. and his staff from'the embassy at th« Indonesian capital Jakarta. The conference was called by a group of Asian countries and one of tho leading figures Is to b« India's Prime Minister Nehru. There is considerable hope her* that the dominant mood of the conference will be one of peace seeking and that this will act as t restraint of the Chinese Communists and a compulsion to make them negotiate for a Formosa* .settlement.
