The matter involved a promissory note. Eisenhower (Continued from page 1) by special train and returned immediately after his speech. In discussing the Middle East crisis, the President struck much the same note of avoiding condemnation that he did in a nationwide TV-radio address from Washington Wednesday evening. He said that in dealing with the Mideast situation he has acted "not as a candidate for office, but as President of the United States." There were cheers and applause when he said he has been guided by this principle: "We cannot and we will not condone aimed aggression -- no matter who the attacker, and no matter who the victim." Referring apparently to Israel, Britain and France and to their armed action in Egypt, Eisenhower said: "We value deeply and lastingly the bonds with those great nations, those great friends, with whom we now so plainly disagree. And I, for one, am confident that those bonds will do more than survive. They can -- and must -grow to new and greater strength. "But this we know above all: there are some firm principles that cannot bend--they can only break. And we shall not break He continued: ours." "We believe that integrity of purpose is the fact that must, most surely, identify and fortify the free world in its struggle against Soviet communism."

Nearly 300 workers left their iobs at 3:30 p.m. yesterday, including drivers, maintenance men, clerks and other terminal em- ployes. The strike did not affect the two Greyhound busses that lun out of Newport daily, it was said at the bus tremmal today. These busses include the 7 a.m. trip from here to New York City and the 10.30 a.m trip to Boston. The nearest area affected by the work stoppage was Providence, POLITIC \ L *DVBRTISRfENT POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT JOINT MEETING TONIGHT 8 p. m. Newport Men's and Women's Democratic Clubs - Speakers -All Candidates Public Welcome International Oils Pale Market Rise NEW YORK Iff)--A sharp rise in international oils paced the stock market to higher ground in fairly active trading early this afternoon. Oils with big interests in the Middle East advanced 3 points or more. Pivotal issues elsewhere in the list posted gains of fractions to around a point or so. The market was up from the start and moved higher as a rumor swept Wall Street that President Nasser of Egypt had resigned. Heavy buying of international oils was reported among usually well - informed sources in Switzerland and Amsterdam,. When the Nasser rumor was discounted there was a slight recoi and some losses began to appear as traders took profits. But the market regathered strength and prices moved higher again in renewed buying interest. Adlai (Continued from Page 11 of "the ill-considered and mistaken policies of the Eisenhower administration " Last night,' in a nationwide television and radio talk--billed as a reply t o Eisenhower's speech Wednesday--Stevenson said: "As late as the summer of 1955 at the Geneva conference, if the President had taken an insisten' stand against the shipment o: Communist arms to Egypt, I am convinced that the Communists would not have risked arming Egypt as they have. "Had the Eisenhower administration taken a firm stand in the Middle East, had it aided Israe with arms and territorial guaran tees, we might, I believe, have been able to prevent the preserr outbreak of hostilities. And if this government had not alternately appeased and provoked Egypt, '. do think we would command more confidence there and in the Arab world." U.N. (Continued from page 1) the «eriou» prejudice of many nations." The Assembly expressed grave concerrt and: 1. Urged that "all parties now nvolved in hostilities in the area agree to an i.nmediate cease-fire and ... halt the movement of military forces and arms into the area;" 2. Urged parties to Arab-Israeli armistice agi-ements promptly to withdraw all forces behind the armistice lines and stop raids across those lines; 3. Recommended that all U.N. members "refrain from introduc- ng military goods in the area of hostilities" and avoid any acts that would hamper implementation of the resolution; 4. Urged that after the cease- fire, effective steps be taken to reopen the canal "and restore secure freedom of navigation;" 5. Asked Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold to report to the council and the Assembly on compliance with the resolution "for such further action as they may deem appropri ate;" 6. "Decided to remain in pmer- gency session pending compliance with this resolution " The special session was called to order at 5:33 p m. The Assembly agreed to take up the Middle East fighting over British and French opposition. Omar Loutfi of Egypt rose first to say that his country had been subjected to "bloody aggression" he charged had been agreed on in advance by Israel, Britain and France. He said Egypt would de- fpnd herself But he pleaded with the Assembly: "Condemn the ag- erressors, gentlemen! Put an end to aggression." Mideast (Continued from page 1) Egypt and recommended that the canal be promptly reopened. The resolution was presented by US. Secretary of State Dulles. It was opposed by Britain, France, Australia, New Zealand a n d Israel. Israel's account of the fighting in the Sinai Peninsula--that part of Egypt east of the Suez--said survivors among the Egyptian forces were trying to extricate themselves and escape westward toward Port Said and Ismailia on the canal. An official Israeli government spokesman said a general collapse of Egyptian forces was in progress throughout the peninsula and that Egypt's losses were heavy. Israel reportedly had captured 100 tanks, mostly of Soviet and Czech manufacture. The Sinai Peninsula is 150 miles wide at its Mediterranean end and 230 miles long. It is bounded on the east by the state of Israel and the Gulf of Aqaba, a Red Sea waterway arm for both Israel and Jordan. Israeli forces invaded the peninsula Monday, asserting their obiective was to knock out Egyptian commando bases. Britain and France quickly demanded that their troops be admitted to the canal zone to protect the waterway.
