U.S. officials said it seems certain that the meeting will be held. But here and in other Western capitals the view was that the opening day suggested by Khrushchev, next Monday, is much too soon. Diplomats estimated it would a 1 . ,1., . ,. . r f , taKC l WO 01 HUei ui ms- tiations to determine exactly what countries should be included and what procedures should govern discussions. Nothing quite like the proposed historic conference has ever been held at the U.N, security council in New York. Important precedents will be set. Recognition of this was reflect- Watsonville Chief Claims 'Disloyalty' Hopping-mad Watsonville Police Chief Frank Osincr today charged that some of his officers have "no more loyalty than a rat" Osmer leveled the charge while disclaiming that he personally reduced prostitution charges against three women and cut. their bail from $500 to $100, hence allowing them to skip town. A story in a San Francisco paper this morning cfaimed that Osmer did both. The story was allegedly written on a tip from a Watsonville source. "This whole thing is purely po Utical.n said Osmer. Background in the cae is this: Past Thursday a Watsonville police officer entered a house at 381 Locust street as a potential customer and asscrtedly was solicited by Gloria Marino, 22. who icportedly accepted marked money in advance payment for her services. The Marino woman. Delores Maxine Barksdale, 34. and Lily Vera Wiikins, 32. were subse-ouentlv arrested by Lt. Robert Hoffman and Sgt. Wallace Jes-sup. The three women were questioned in Watsonville and later brought to the county jail here. Shortly after the woman hed been forwarded to Santa Cruz, Osmer, then on a two-week military leave, showed up at the sta Hon. He told officers to bring the girls back and set bail at $100. "I didn't know bail had previously seen set at $500," said Osmer, who says there is no bail scheduled at the Watsonville station. "I just recommeded we set bail at $100, Osmer said "Nobody told me any different." Asked how they determined bail, the chief said his office uses its own discretion. Under law, only a judge can set bail. Normally, a judge will give law enforcement agencies a schedule, so that he will not have to be bothered at night. Osmer said one of the girls had been originally booked on a prostitution charge on a booking slip, but that on the jail register, all were charged with lewd, idle and dissolute conduct under the vagrancy section of the penal code. "That's what we always book these girls on." the chief said. "It's easy to make our case. We're not trying to protect anybody." On Monday, the three women were scheduled to be arraigned in court, but failed to appear. Judge James Scoppettone, sitting in for vacationing Judge Charles Franich, ordered bail forfeited and $1000 bench warrants be issued for the women. "This is strictly a routine affair," said Osmer, while saying the publicity in the case was a result of some people trying to stir up trouble. While saying some of his officers have "no more loyalty than a rat," he said some of his men were obviously on the other side of the fence. Osmer did not spell out precisely in which way he thought his officers were disloyal. "I couldn't give anyone protection even if I wanted to," Osmer asserted. "My men are responsible for everything that goes on in their areas during shift and they have standing orders to make all necessary arrests " Index Page Amusements 8 Classified Section 10-11-12 Comics 9 Editorial Features 13 Junior Editor 13 Markets 12 Radio and TV Program 8 Societj, Club News 3 Sports 7 Vital Statistics 12 ed in a stand by Senate Republican leader William F. Knowland of California that the free nations should not accept any Khrushchev conditions which weakened the U.N. Knowland told a news conference he considered a fundamental issue to be whether the Soviet government, or any other country, "can in effect unilaterally change the procedure of the U.N. by fiat of its own." If this is permitted, he said, it will "in effect have undetermined and ultimately jeopardized the future existence of the organization." Knowland's views are among a considerable flow of congressional opinion that the White House is receiving informally. An idea put forward by Sen. Hubert II. Humphrey (!) Minn), is that Prime Minister Ben Our-ion of Israel and representatives of the Arab states should be included in any summit conference on the Middle Last. "Ben Giirion of Israel should hy all means be invited to the conference." Humphrey asserted. "If Israel and the Arab states are included we would have an opportunity of clarifying relationships. "The relationships between Israel and the Arab states are at the root of the problem, rather than the question of U.S. -Soviet relations about which we have talked so much." Among conditions Khrushchev-attached to a summit meeting were that Prime Minister Nehru of India and Arab leaders be invited. Kisenhower and Secretary of State Dulles conferred by telephone early this morning on a reply to the Soviet premier. The White House said they talked in advance of a 9 a m. national security council meeting. Summit questions presumably were discussed at the council ttteting. After it was ocr, Duh le- stayed OB for a private talk with the president. Eisenhower and Dulles. White House Press Officer James C. Hagerty reported, were concerned with working out a reply to Khrushchev. Hagerty held open the possibility that the message might be dispatched to Moscow today but said that was not certain by any means. Hagerty said he presumed the U.S. reply would be discussed with this country's allies "primarily France and the United Kingdom'' before it was put into final form for transmission to the Kremlin.

Public Guardian Program Is Being Studied Bv Board A study on the feasibility of installing a new type puhlic guardianship program in the county was started this morning by the joint study committee on county welfare. Supervisor Hulda McLean, chairman of the study committee, re ported that members were assigned to various work problems to delve into the program approved by the state legislature last September.

The map was submitted by Ross Armstead of George S. Nolte Engineering and representatives of 28 property owners headed by Edward Giubbini, owner of the East Side Hardware and Building Supply company. "I've been involved in 40 or more of these neighborhood propositions and this is the first that got to the tentative subdivision map stage," City Planner Robert Cook said. The land, bounded by improved property on Trevethan avenue, Park way, Soquel avenue and Al-mena street, will produce 68 medium-sized lots from the center of the block where for a large part gardens grow now. The lots now are 200 to 220 feet deen. Giubbini, who negotiated most of the deal with his neighbors, said the value of the improved ed) canal lo match ti e one at right.

In other city planning business, the commissioners decided to deny a request to correct the misspelling of Ortalon circle to Ortolan circle.

Swift street, and the new Oceanshore highway alignment be reclassified to exclusive light industrial with site supervision. The property borders a present industrial zone and is currently zoned general business and single family residential.

Venezuelan Army Plot To Grab Power Still Is Seen Seething Caracas, Venezuela VP). Rumors of army anger in the provinces continued to reach Caracas today after Venezuela's ruling junta, backed by capital crowds, deleated a military plot to seize power. Students, professional people and workers who supported the junta in a showdown early yesterday remained alert overnight to possible repercussions after a general strike backing the government was called off. The army garrison In Mara-cay, 50 miles west of Caracas, was rumored in rebellion. But informed sources said there were no troop movements there. The garrison is commanded hv Col. MarcheUi Padrra, who was implicated in the unsuccessful plot. A military spokesman in the industrial citv of Valencia, 80 miles west of Caracas, also denied reports of army movements there. Interior Minister Numa Que-vedo said all state and territorial governments were supporting the junta. He announced that an undisclosed number of civilians had Opposes UN Council Session Washington (AP). French Ambassador Herve Alphand said today Premier De Gaulle "is not in favor" of a summit conference within the United Nations security council in New York at this time. But he later issued a statement leaving completely in doubt whether De Gaulle finally would refuse to attend. Alphand called on Secretary of State Dulles and told newsmen afterward "We want real results, and we don't think the security council is a good place." He added "it was clear from our reply we are not in favor." Soviet Premier Khrushchev, he said, was "certainly either mistaken or he did not attempt o read it (De Gaulle's answer) to well," if he believed the French leader accepted Khrushchev's bid. Newsmen understood Alphand to mean that De Gaulle would not attend any summit meeting within the security council framework which might be arranged within the next few weeks. However, Alphand, on returning to the embassy, authorized a statement which said: "The ambassador never said that Gen. De Gaulle would not attend a summit meeting of the security council. "He simply said that he had not been informed of any change in the French position which had been stated in the letter of Gen. De Gaulle to Mr. Khrushchev." In answering Khrushchev Tues. day, De Gaulle called for the U. N. to "continue its debates'" on the Middle East problem. He implied that this should be done on the same level as has been the case in other U. N. debates.
