Four meeting on the problem by October seemed certain to be rejected by the United States, Britain and France because of the conditions which Russia specified. The Soviet document, handed to the Western Power ambassadors in Moscow Saturday, specified that the session should first discuss the pence treaty and the formation of an nil-German government and only after that should it take up a Western proposal for creation of a commission to Investigate political conditions throughout Germany prior lo holding "free elections." Termi "Unacceptable" Officials here and Western diplomats in Moscow indicated that the Russian terms are unacceptable. The reason is that the Westerners think the Soviets are put- ling the cart before the horse and doing it deliberately for propaganda purposes. The Russian stralegy In the long exchange of notes on German unity and peace which has taken place over many months Is believed to be aimed r.' v d!;-,;pt;r,g Western plans to associate Germany with the North Atlantic Treaty defenses in Europe. Measures for German rearmament and the formation of German troop units as part of European army are well advanced. Soviets Make Kepi; The postion of the Western Powers on the peacemaking question was set forth .most recently in a note to Moscow on July 10. The Soviet note Saturday was a reply to that. Paris. London and Washington are expected to start consultations on their next note In a week or so. Essentially, the Western Powers have taken the line that If the Soviet Union sincerely wants lo unite East and West Germany under a single German government It must Inevitably join with the West in holding free elections throughout the country. But preliminary to that the Kremlin should be willing, the West has argued, to join in setting tip some kind of impartial commission to determine whether and how free elections can be held.

Army Engineers' Chief Says Air Base Report Is 'Over-Crif/co/' WASHINGTON I*—The chief of army engineers today termed "over-critical" a scorching Senate report accusing him and other top military men of confusion and waste in the hurry-up building of U. S. air bases in North Africa. The committee urged Secretary of th« Army Pace to "take appropriate Action" against Lt. Gen Lewis A. Pick, the engineers' chief. Pick got out a statement today saying "I had no responsibility in the determination of the air force requirements in North Africa. It was not my responsibility to direct Ihe construction on 'a crash (or rush) program basis." The armed services preparedness investigation subcommittee, headed by Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Tem made public Its report yesterday. It said Pick was responsible for the building job f which has cost taxpayers 220 million dollars and is expected eventually to tola! more than double that Amount. The Johnson committee report said there had been no effective check made on frauds, kickbacks theft and pilfering. It said, too] that "large-scale loafing, drunkenness, »nd failure properly to attend to duty was rampant at least throughout the initial stages of construction." In his statement. Pick said he had not yet seen copies of the report but that' "from the newspaper accounts, it would appear that the sobcommidse has submitted » generalized report which appears to be over-critical." "It is," he said, -Not unusual for constructors to experience some deficiencies in accomplishing large military construction projects under extreme limits of time. This It what happened In Morocco." Pick said he had returned eight days ago from an inspection ol the North African bases and submitted a report to P»c« "which the committee apparently has not seen." FISHING (Continued from Pag* 1) "when ft was considered silly bv many to recognize the threat from within." "For your magnificent fight on Communism I salute you," he Bald "You will help save America from her enemies from without as well as those from within." Mayor Vincent Impellitterl welcomed the legion to the city and urged the veterans to do all in their power lo see that a large vote is cast in the forthcoming presidential elections. . Gen. Dwlght D. Eisenhower the Republican presidential candidate addressed the Legion later today. The Democratic candidate, Gov. Aiilai K. Stevenson, will address the convention Wednesday. Two parades headline the lighter side of the Legion agenda — yes- terdoy's kick-off march by the 40 and 8 Society, the Legion's fun and honor group, and tomorrow's 14- to-I6-hour parade. Even u the 4n and t members frolicked down Fifth Avenue yesterday subcommittees whipping together resolutions that will be referred to the convention for action. The 40 and 8 parade of almost three hourj was just • preview of tomorrow's march. Some 10000 marchers participated before * police-estimated crowd of 900,000, The 40 and 8 — living up to Ila name taken from the rated capacity of French World War I box can M men and eight horses—showed off many gasoline-driven replicas of locomotive and the box care. Firecrackers, backfiring engines and explosions from small cannons punctuated the music of more than 100 bands in the parade. But the Legionnaires held the noise and the pranki to a minimum while the parade pss«ed St Patrick's Cathedral ,nd two other Fifth Avenue churches. It was the first time the 40 and g had paraded on this avenue and on a Sunday The churches gave their approval.' EISENHOWER (Continued trum ftft j) opinion and In world effectiveness, tb« United St.vw i, no better, no more efficient, no stronger than the »' ^'Irmiwsi of Us public of- referred several times to infiltration of c o m m u n 1 s t s into American government. "Although we must say It in sadness and shame, as we)] as in anger, they have'succeeded In penetrating our own ranks, even at times into our government," he said, . He referred to waste and extravagance, and said they are a result of fear end hysteria. He added: "Fear is a climate that nourishes bankruptcy In dollars and morals alike. Those afraid seek security in a heedless extravagance that breeds waste or substance and corruption of men. "From thl» time forward, we Americans cannot tolerate the preparation and execution of our pro- Brain In * climate of fear and hysteria." He said the American Legion "has helped cleanse the American government and American communities of subversive influence and traitorous conspiracy." .And he pledged himself to co-operate with the Legion In that work. Eisenhower added: ' "You have done your work without recklessly Injuring the reputations of innocent people." He also, said: "Let us never tolerate In' any area of our community life those criminal malefactors who b y stealth or by subversion or by treacherous betrayal attempt to weaken and destroy the American constitutional system. "But, at the same time, let us forever how sharply to the fundamental Anerican principle that every man is Innocent mull he Is proved guilty. "The assassins of character and the promolers of witch hunts are dangerous to our freedom at home and to our world positions of leadership. . . ." McCarthy Question These remarks came against the background of Eisenhower's news conference at. Denver Friday In which he was asked about Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.) Elsenhower, without naming him directly, said he would support McCarthy for re-election "as a member of the Republican organization." but would not give blanket endorsement to anyone "who does anything I believe to be un-American in'methods or procedures." In today's speech Elsenhower listed the nations and the numbers of people who have been enslaved by the Kremlin since the end of World War n. Russia Is now bent, he said, on "gradual slangulatlon of Industrial America." He added: "Stalin'has said that there may have to bo another International war, unless the. free nations—Including ~ America'—become so convinced of the hopelessness of the struggle that they will surrender. 442,436 Baits of Cotton Ginned Before Aug. 16 WASHINGTON (/R —The Census Bureau reported today that 442.43« running bale« of cotton from the 1952 crop were ginned prior to Aug.

Sawyer Says Price of Consumer Goods Won't Rise Much More WASHINGTON If! _ Secretary of Commerce Sawyer sayi that prices of consumer joods probably won't Increase much the rest of this year, but euggeits the long- term trend still may be upward. Rain Forces Truce Talks From Tents MUNSAN, Korea MV- V. S. security personnel «t the Panmtmjom truce site had weather problems today. A rain-flooded stream forced them out of their campsite. Troops waded through waist-deep water and moved 11 tents and equipment to high ground near the armistice conference tent. A colored balloon marking the neutral zone broke loose from Its morings. Fire sldiers l>r<ive<{ the swirling waters, grabbed the cable and lashed It down. Help from the main U. N. camp at Miumn had to be flown in. The road was closet! by high water. Here in Munsan the movie tonight was titled: "Singing In the Rain" 'Major prlc« changes are not Indicated for Uu balance of thW year," said B«wyer, summing up result* of i survey by the department on the effects of the 56-day steel strike that ended July 25. Despite the IS.30 a ton aieel price Inoreas* that went along with the settlement, the survey showed many businessmen plan to absorb all or part of'the higher melal cost rather than try to pass It along to the public. Sawyer gave this reason: "It is clear that general refusal on the part of the consumer to pay higher prices would make price Increases impossible to maintain." The possibility of higher prices in (he more distant future, he Indicated, depends on whether a general round of wage and price boosts It now beginning or ending. But he said the effects or the steel settlement have been "negligible" so far and that "alarmists' statements or actions are not war ranted and not helpful." Price Stabilizer'Ellis Arnall, who had favored n smaller steel price Increase, said after the settlement that It would cost tlic avernge American family S100 a I Amall said yesterday the cost of living now Is at the highest level in history—-and is continuing to rise, Gen.
