Back Up Talk, President Told Democrats Ask Specific Blueprints To Enact 8-Point Program By JACK BELL Washington, Jan. 10 (JP) Democrats called on President Eisenhower today to back up with specific blueprints for action the 8-point program he laid before Congress yesterday. ; ; - , SHOW-ME ATTITUDE Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas set the show-me tone of reaction to the proposals Eisenhower outlined in his state of the Union message. Eisenhower said they are needed to meet the growing space era threat of what he repeatedly called Communist imperialism. "The President has in general terms set forth some worthy objectives," Johnson said in an interview. "He has called for strengthening of our Allies, greater understanding and commerce between nations, and attempts ot bring peace to the world. These have long been Democratic objectives. "Now we are waiting for his blueprints for meeting those oh- Market Decline Follows Speech By Eisenhower New York, Jan. 10 Iff) Steels and motors continued lower as the stock market declined in quiet early trading today. Losses among key stocks went from fractions to around a point OP more. The tone was lower from the start In a resumption of yesterday's late decline which followed President Eisenhower's state of the Union speech. Wall Streeters felt the market had discounted much of the economic phases of the speech well in advance and they awaited further developments in Washington. Meanwhile, layoffs and cutbacks in the auto Industry held down production. While Federal Reserve Board Chairman Martin hinted further credit easing moves if conditions worsen, the board's seasonal rut in open market credit made loanable funds of commercial banks less plentiful. General Dynamics and North American Aviation erased early losses but Douglas Aircraft was down close to 2 before halving its loss and Boeing cut a point loss to a fraction. Youngstown Sheet dropped well over a point. U. S. Steel and Chrysler were off about a point each. Seaboard Oil continued its spurt as financial circles said it was being purchased heavily by a single buyer. The stock rose 3". to 63Mi on 2.800 shares. Gulf Oil dropped more than a point. Fractional losers included Bethlehem Steel, General Motors, Goodrich, Kennecott, American Smelting, Santa Fe and Standard Oil (New Jersey).

Although Johnson and Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn (D., Tex.) both praised Eisenhower's speech in statements yesterday, there was mounting evidence of Democratic disappointment that Eisenhower did not make any spectacular proposals for an immediate buildup in American military might, An analysis of the President's proposals circulated among Dem-ocartic Senators said that basically the message was long on proposals and short on performance. "Even the program to step up national security boils down to pumping a little more money into existing projects and promising vaguely to reorganize the defense structure, " the analysis said. G. O. P. PRAISE Republicans were practically unanimous in their praise of Eisenhower's personally delivered message. Some Democrats lauded it but many of them were critical. Eisenhower was interrupted 41 times by applause during the 44 minutes he addressed a joint session of Congress in the House chamber. Republicans provided most of the applause, but Democrats often joined in and occasionally led the outbursts. The show of enthusiasm, like the world situation, differed sharply from that at the start of 1957. Only five rounds of applause interrupted the entire 1957 address to Congress. The White House described Eisenhower as very pleased with the reception he received yesterday. Rayburn said he was glad to know the President is alive to what the American people are disturbed about and this is the bickering and dissension among the services in the Pentagon. "I hope he gives secretary Mc-Elroy the authority to get the job done regardless of who stays or Who has to go," Rayburn said. A high Administration official said Eisenhower had in mind a move to bolster the Secretary of Defense with additional authority over military spending. PRESIDENT ACTING This official said the President was personally directing the Defense Department reorganization plans and might recommend creation of a staff of military advisers, separate from the joint chiefs, to help McElroy resolve disputes among the services. Senator Bush (R., Conn.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, called in a statement for creation of a unified command as the only way to end rivalry and wasteful competition among the armed services. He said he does not believe unified war plans can be drawn up under the present system, In which the joint chiefs represent their indivdual services and the (Continued on page 2, column 7) Hue Fimllr Entertainment Open Rowling Irl. rat.

GREEN Washington, Jan. 10 WV President Eisenhower will send to Congress Monday a missile-age budget calling for $73.8 billion or more in spending and an increase in the federal debt ceiling, Government informants said today. The new budget, covering the 1959 fiscal year starting next July 1, will be precariously balanced, as Eisenhower hinted in his state of the Union message yesterday. But the President will notify Congress that the supposedly balanced budget for the present government year is now expected to show a small deficit instead of a planned $1V4 billion surplus, officials disclosed. Eisenhower reportedly will attribute the return to deficit financing to two factors: a $1.3 billion increase in scheduled Defense Department outlays, and a drop of about $1 billion in estimated revenues, caused by declining business profits and personal income. UNDER HALF BILLION The deficit will be well under a half-billion dollars, informants said, but the return to red ink is a major disappointment to the Administration. Only 3 months ago the Administration announced it would have its third balanced budget in a row. The same causes faster military spending, slower tax collections will oblige Eisenhower to seek a temporary, slight increase in the $275-billion ceiling on the public debt, Administration sources said. The Treasury had hoped this year to avoid puncturing the debt ceiling imposed by Congress as a curb on executive spending. Some influential Legislators, during last spring's Congressional economy drive, announced they would refuse to vote for an increase. This resistance is expected to fade quickly, however, under the Government-wide pressure for a defense speed-up to enable this country to match and exceed Soviet progress in missiles, rockets, and scientific weaponry. The expected budget request of close to $74 billion will be about $2 billion higher than Eisenhower's original estimate for this fiscal year and roughly $1 billion higher than this year's actual outlays. This will represent the highest federal spending since World War II. RED PROPOSAL SHARES SPACE Eases Impact Of State Of Union Message London, Jan. 10 Wl Soviet Pre mier Bulganin's proposal for summit talks today blunted the Impact on Western European opinion of President Eisenhower's call for peace through strength. Instead of having the news papers all to himself, Eisenhower had to share space with Bulganin and in some cases took second place to the Soviet Premier. But there were no immediate signs that Bulganin had caused new divisions of opinion in Western ranks. Rather Western Europe's newspapers gave their readers the impression that Eisenhower and Bulganin were engaging in a dialogue of peace a conversation that did not fit together very well but was of tremendous importance for the entire world. Except in the Communist papers, editorial writers gave support to the lines of the President's state of the Union message. But there were doubts whether the President could secure final congressional approval for his expensive and complex program. The independent Times of London said in its editorial: "Trying to do too much at once may have hampered the American effort hitherto." Newspapers pointed out that Bulganin's notes amounted to a summary of all Soviet proposals (Continued on page 2, column 1) C 'i DAILY CIRCULATION LAST MONTH 78,204 HOME DELIVERED 0 A heavy pall of smoke soars skyward as fire rages in Frankie's Market, Lodi, for the second time in less than 6 months.

Volunteers from five de- County Requests Added Protection For Water Officials Appeal To State Agency To Name Bergen Protected Area By WILLIAM ORIOL (Special to the Bergen Evening Record) Trenton, Jan. 10 Bergen County water supply needs a protective helping hand for growth years ahead, said Bergen County Engineer Roscoe McClave and others here yesterday. A State agency asked to give that protection may make its decision at a February 20 meeting. NO OPPOSITION McClave spoke at a hearing before the New Jersey Water Policy and Supply Council for the Bergen County Board of Freeholders. He asked the Council to name his County as a protected area. This would mean that a permit, would be required for all new future wells that would take more than 100,000 gallons a day from subsurface sources. No one had anything to say in opposition to the proposal during a hearing lasting nearly 2 hours. All witnesses said they thought the step was essential, even though there is no immediate threat to the general supply except in a few local areas. They agreed with Dr. Thurlow Nelson. Water Council Chairman. Bergen Navy Flier Killed During Operations At Sea Allendale's Stephen McNally Crashes In Ocean During Maneuvers; Was Top Athlete, Student Allendale The death of Lieutenant (. g.) Stephen Potter McNally during flight operations in the Atlantic was announced by the Navy yesterday. BODY NOT RECOVERED The 26-year-old pilot, son of Mrs. N. H. Hagedorn of 896 Franklin Turnpike and Dr. J. J. McNally, a New York physician, crashed during maneuvers aboard the aircraft carrier U. S. S. Intrepid off the Virginia Capes Wednesday afternoon. His plane crashed after he had been waved off to attempt another landing, the Navy said. A telegram from Commander H. J. Silberstein, commanding officer of Guided Missile Group 2 at Chincoteague, Va., said his body was not recovered. McNally was an outstanding athlete and student leader at Ramsey High School where he was graduated in 1948. He served as president of the junior class and president of the student council In his senior year, when his fellow , students voted him Mr. Ramsey High School in an annual popularity contest.

Air. who said: "I take it the Bergen Board of Freeholders is acting to lock the barn door before the horse is stolen." If Bergen is named as a protected area, it would join 11 others that have such restrictions in all or part of their area. McClave said the recommendation for protecting ground water was made in April 1957 by a Water Supply Committee. This 5-man group made a year-long study and concluded that definite steps had to be taken to assure an adequate water supply in the next 40 years. Anthony Lunetta, a member of the Committee and former Bergen hydraulic engineer, told the Council of Freeholders were mak- fS S , .1 4 ... 1 i ' I t . ... : ' STEPHEN P.

Murray Jr. (D., Hudson) thinks bills proposed yesterday in a conflicts of interest study have a fine chance of success, even though they are admittedly exploring unknown territory in New Jersey. Murray, and others on the Senate commission that studied the problem, also say that similar regulations should soon be drawn up for local officials, especially county prosecutors. The conflicts of interest probe in New Jersey has caused much concern in the past few years. State officials and taxpayers have often asked: where docs the personal interest of legislators and other public officials begin to overlap their responsibilities to the public? Until now, it was practically impossible to say when this was happening because there has been no clcarcut set of rules. The commission Murray heads tried to clear this up by suggesting all kinds of rules and proposing new laws calling for penalties of up to 2 years in prison or up to $3,000 in fines, or both. Murray, at a press conference in the Senate chamber yesterday, said he believes the proposals have a good chance for adoption. Senators Walter H. Jones (R., Bergen) and John A. Waddington (D., Salem) have agreed to sponsor the bill soon after the Legislature reconvenes Tuesday. Jones, said Murray, is noted for his vigor. Among the recommended statutes yesterday were those prohibiting members of the Legislature or State officers and employees from: participating in State property condemnation pro-( Continued on page 2, column S) Far Liberal niTldends an Insared Sir-Inis "ORITAM", n Main it..

According to police, Albert Ny-huis of 379 Hoover Avenue, called headquarters at 4:32 A. M. to report his attic was on fire. Ny-huis told police he was awakened by the smell of smoke. All Township fire companies arrived at the scene within minutes of the call. Nyhuis, his wife, and three children escaped from the house uninjured and went to a neighbor's home. The fire was confined to the attic, which was unfinished, police said. The rest of the house was not damaged by the flames. Damage was confined to the rafters, ceiling beams, and attic insulation. The cause of the fire is unknown, police said. Fireman Joseph Jancck required five stitches in his hand after he cut it on a piece of glass while fighting the blaze. The fire was brought under control at 6 A. M. Township fire officials asked Westwood fire companies to stand by after the blaze was put out in the event it started again. Police said this was done because fire hoses had frozen in the bitter cold.

The weatherman called for fair skies today and mostly cloudy wealher tomorrow as temperatures were expected to make the climb toward 40. He said the rise in temperature should put an end to the latest cold spell. Slate, County, and local police advised motorists to exercise extreme caution on back streets as they are treacherous. Main roads were reported clean. Blaze Is Second In 6 Months Clouds Of Smoke Blanket Area With Ashes Lodi Frankie's Market, destroyed by fire 6 months ago, burned to the ground this morning. Burning furiously, th blaze tied up Route 17 traffic and sent up a pall of smoke so large it looked like a cloud bank in the early morning sunlight. Ashes fell for miles around. And, said the father of the owner, the building wasn't insured. He gave an offhand estimate of damage at somewhere over $2 million. FIRST WAS ARSON The highway store was a low cinder-block building about 200 feet by 500 feet, surrounded by acres of parking space. Only this week John Spinelli of Lodi, a 20- year-old car washer, entered a plea of guilty to setting fire to the market last July 29, when the fire caused an estimated $l-mil-lion damage. Reconstructed and opened again in November, the new market was about twice its former size, according to Frank Quartier Sr., father of the owner. He also said the building wasn't insured because the insurance companies wanted a sprinkler system installed before they would issue a policy. Installation of this system, said Quartier, was to begin Monday. Frank Quartier Jr. arrived at the market at 7:15 this morning, about 10 minutes after the first alarm. He was taken home, ill, by police. They called him a a nervous wreck- His father said the building was completely stocked for tomorrow's sale day. FIVE TOWNS CALLED Some 200 firemen and eight trucks from five municipal fire departments fought the blaze, extending hose lines across busy Route 17 at the rush hour. County and local police had to reroute traffic and try to untangle jams. By 7:30 the interior of the building was almost completely burned out; a nearby auction building and bar on the market site were also damaged. An alarm was turned in at 7:06 by Michael Luciano, operator of a sporting-goods stand there. He said he arrived at 7 A. M. and heard a loud explosion at the west end of the block-long building. There are 16 gas heaters in the main building. Nightwatch-man George Trocola, who also turned in an alarm, said he thought the fire was started by a gas explosion. Fire Chief John Hook said tht fire was under control by 8 A. M., even though near-zero temperatures froze the water as it dripped off the burning building and mads the footing treacherous. No injuries were reported. POWER CUT OFF Fire departments from Lodi, Hasbrouck Heights, Rochelle Park, Saddle Brook, and May-wood respondrd. Water was pumped from hydrants in back of the market on Garibaldi Avenue and from across Route 17, several hundred yards away. The fire would probably burn, under control, all day. said Hook. At times flames were dozens of feet high. The Public Service Electric and Gai Company crews cut power on a stretch of line running along the north side 10 feet from the building. Four poles were burning when the power was cut. Also deprived of Public Service power was the WABC radio relay station nort.i of the market.
