Since 1SM7, when the General Assembly designated Oct. 24.— the date on which the U.N. charter came into force in 1945— as United Nations Day, observances have increased steadily in number and variety.

Popular hero Imrc Nagy took over the premiership and appealed for an end to the street fighting raging throughout the country. Nagy, the popular hero whose return to leadership was the first fruit of the rebellion, clam'ped martial law on the entire country and then went before the people to try to restore order. But Budapest radio reported that street fighting still was raging late in the day after night long battles between aoti-SUlinlst and anti-Communist rebels and Hungarian troops and police. 'Budapest Radio said groups of counter revolutionaires had surrendered, but the fighting apparently still raged throughout the beautiful Danube River city. Four Inch Snow Hits Northwest A blanket of snow four inches Ucep covered parts of the Northwest early today and a cold outbreak dropped temperatures about BO degrees. The snow resulted from a strong disturbance which moved north eastward through the Central Pla tcau and Central Rockies. Rock Springs, Wyo., reported the larg est snowfall—four inches. Snow flurries continued at a fiumber of points in Idaho and Western Montana early today \vhile scattered showers were re ported southward into Arizona. The only other rain in the nation occurred in the Northeast, but amounts wr 'Budapest Radio announced that a surrender deadline had been set for 2 p.m. (9 a.m. EOT). But 10 minutes before this deadline expired, the radio announced that the surrender deadline had been extended four hours—from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. (1 p.m. EDT). It said that all "counter-revolutionaries" who ceased fighting by 6 p.m. would not be co'urtmar- tialed, a pointed indication that Hungarian troops were fighting the Russians. Although the radio announced that "order was being restored" in many areas throughout the country, it was apparent the fighting was not over. (Reports reaching the West said the Russians had completely surrounded Budapest and were using tanks, machine guns and heavy armored cars. Kadio Budapest said Nagy received a five-man delegation of counterrevolutionaries from one one 'area who offered to surrender if they were ndt courtmarlialed. The use of the world "courtmar- tial" indicated tiie delegation may have included members of the Hungarian armed forces. Nagy accepted their offer. At 1:30 p.m. (8:30 a.m. EDT;, Budapest Radio said another "strong group of armed counterrevolutionaries surrendered at the corner of Szondy and Voeroes- marty streets" in downtown Budapest. Nagy broadcast his appeal for a cease fire in a voice trembling with excitement, lie called on "all who are fightiny to put down their arnu; by 2 p.m. <9 a.m. KT)."

In the efforts to resolve those problems, the U.N. has a crucial responsibility..." Artists from Austria, Greece, Britain and the United States will appear in .tonight's program. Throughout the United States about 1,200 cities and (owns have appointed U.N. Day committees, and in most states and territories' governors have issued proclamations setting aside the day.

(UP) — Ohio Grange delegates Tuesday asked the Ohio Legislature to appropri ate $75,000 for a new laboratory to "fight the growing menace 01 livestock diseases." A resolution adopted at the farm organization's state convention here described the present labora tory as inadequate. The new lab oratory is to be constructed near Reynoldsburg. The delegates also asked the U. S. Agriculture Department to increase wheat acreage allotments because of a low supply of a win tor wheat crop and the growing demand for American w h c a abroad. Another resolution urged the dc partment to allow all farmers growing wheat to vote on quotas regardless of acreage. At present farmers must have 15 acres or more in wheat to vote.

Adlai Says Ike Concerned Only With Cash Book Adlai E. Stevenson accused the Eisenhower administration today of a -"snuggling intimacy" with the giants of business and a narrow lack of concern for everything that docs not "pay off in the cash ledger." In a speech prepared for delivery before a businessmen's lunch in New York City, the Democratic presidential candidate said his party is "the best friend American business has." '. He charged that the Eisenhower administration lacks both the broad representation and the imagination to see that money invested in education, health and welfare and natural resources is "money invested in the improvement of America — money which will repay itself many time* in developing a population which can produce more, purchase more and plan more for new expansion in the future." Stevenson's address was the first in a 12-hour campaign through the city and its suburbs during which he scheduled five speaking appearances. President Eisenhower was to carry his campaign to the housewife today in a nationwide ' tele vision speech at 3 p.m. EOT. Vice President Richard M. Nixon whistle-stopped through Stevenson's home state of Illinois. Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Estes Kefauvcr in a scries of appearances in Michi gan assailed Republican "big business" policies at a Detroit lunch. He charged that Defense secretary Charles E. Wilson, former president of General Motors, "has cooked up a deal with Curtiss Wright to tide it p' er until after election day" will, defense con tracts and thus contribute to "a stop-gap election eve prosperity." Stevenson said the new deal "made America safe for capitalism" by laying down ground rules that protect decent employers from sweat shop competition and responsible securities traders from "the charlatan and the cheat." "The Eisenhower administration seems, to have confused genuine friendship for business with snuggling intimacy toward a few of its giants," he said. "And meanwhile the big have gotten bigger and the small arc disappearing." operation of an al/eged gambling casino in a chickenhouse near New California. The wire service also reported that Kerns said that one of his special investigators for the county won $417 while posing as a gambler at the place. "I think we have enough evidence now, not only to obtain indictments, but also to get convictions," the prosecutor was quoted as saying. Bryant, who also has been investigating gambling in this area, said his department was interested in the operation because of possible liquor violations involved. "We find that gambling and liquor usually go hand-in-hand," Bryant said. "But our agents were not able to buy any liquor and a close inspection of trash failed to produce any evidence." Meantime, State Fire Marshall Charles Scott, who teamed with Bryant in the Friday night "raid" of the Jerome township "chicken coop" revealed an appeal had been filed from his order condemning the building as a place of public assembly.. Scott said the appeal was filed personally by the building owner, Ora Herron. Hearing has been set for 1:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 29, in Scott's office. Scott said Herron had indicated his willingness to cease using the building as an "assembly hall." The fire marshall's tear-down order, given to Herron's son. Dale, was based on wiring, exits and improper ventilation. Scott explained today that the frame-constructed building could not be repaired to comply with the public assembly code. "Raid" of the building by the separate state agencies was viewed generally as an end-run play to stop its alleged gambling activities, but no arrests were made. Brown Sees Same Ohio Vote Total As Cast in 1952 COLUMBUS, 0. (UP) — Secretary of State Ted W. Brown today estimated the total Ohio vote on Nov. 6 would be about the same as 1982's 3.7 million. • iflrown forecast the 1956 total vote at 3.750,000 as compared to 3.749,828 in the 1952 presidential election. WASHINGTON (UP)—President Eisenhower h ready not only to stop H-bomb tests, but "to put all nuclear weapons aside permanently" as soon as "one basic requirement is met." "This requiremet is that we, as a nation, and all peoples, know safety from attack." But until "properly safeguarded international agreements can be reached," this country must continue to develop "the most advanced weapons—for the sake of our own national safety, for the sake of all free nations, for the sake of peace itself." The President thus capsuled his H-bomb policy late Tuesday in releasing from the White House two long official memoranda detailing the history of U.S. nuclear developments and the history of U.S. efforts to control the atom for peace since 1945. Deals With H-bmb Ttits The President's statement and the two documents — which he called 'a full and explicit re- Man Admits Slaying Of Boy, Eight FOSTORIA, O. (UP)—George H. Bixler, 27, Fostoria, today said he beat an 8-year-old boy to death and severely beat the boy's younger sister. Bixler told police he took the children for a ride and then beat them with a hammer. Bixler killed Tommy Sheridan, 8, and severely beat his sister. Juanita, 6. She was in critical condition. Bixler unfolded his story in police headquarters early today after being brought to the station by his uncle.

The documents also disclosed that Mr. Eisenhower twice — in late June, 1954, and again i Juc, 1955 approved inter-agency rec- com-medations that the United States should not agree to a "test moratorium" in the absence of a disarmament agreement. The first action followed a test ban recommendation by Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru of India on April 2, 1954. Nehru's proposal wa's echoed by the Communist world peace council. The second followed a Soviet proposal for prohibition of tests, 'without provision of safeguards" and a report by presidential disarmament adviser Harold E. Stassen stressing "the absolute necessity of effective inspection in any agreement" with Russia. Stevenson has said a simple test ban agreement with the .Russians is sufficient because if they cheat and explode an H-bomb "we would immediately detect it." President Eisenhower: It is impossible "to have positive assurance of such detection except in the case of the largest weapons. Nor is it possible to state, immediately following the long-range detection of a test, its size and character." Stevenson has said H-bombs contaminate the atmosphere and cause genetic damage endangering children yet unborn. Mr. Eisenhower: "The continuance of the present rate of H-bomb testing—by the most sober and responsible scientific judgment — does not imperil the health of humanity." Stevenson Started H-Bomb Issue In Address in April CHICAGO (UP)— The H-bomb issue, hottest question of the presidential campaign, had its beginning six months ago on April 21. At that time, Adlai E. Stevenson came out for action to halt hydrogen bomb tests in a non-political speech before the annual meeting of the American Society of Newspaper Editors in Washington, D.C. He devoted just 217 words of a speech attacking the Republican foreign policy to the subject of H-bomb tests. After criticizing GOP policy, Stevenson gave some of his own ideas. One was that this nation "give prompt and earnest consideration to stopping further tests of the hydrogen bomb." "As a layman I question the sense of multiplying the enlarging weapons of a destructive power already almost incomprehensible," Stevenson said. "Of course," he continued, "I would call upon other nations to follow our lead, and if they don't, and persist in further tests, we will know about it and can reconsider our foreign policy." It wasn't long after Stevenson won the Democratic presidential nomination in August that he began talking about H-bomb tests again. X-Rays Cause More Radiation Than H-Bomb COLUMBUS, 0. (UP)—An Ohio State University atomic scientist said here today that "shoe fitting -X-ray machines have probably done more radioactive damage than H-bombs." Dr. William G. Myers, a researcher in use of atomic energy in medicine, said there "are indications that we are all contaminated with bomb ashes." Myers said the real problem is to determine when these radioactive particles become dangerous to the human body. The problem, he said, i s to move the matter into proper perspective. Some scientists believe any radiation above the amount the body ;,oniially has is harmful Myers said. "We know that radioactivity is |>otentiilly harmful," he said X-rays are too." Some countries -Myers said, even ban the use of shoe X-ray machines because of their raJiuuelu
