TUESDAY, MAY 4, 195416 PAGES CXRCCLATIOX ACDfTID BT ABC PRICE: FIVE CENTS Ml JV Dispatch Effl EMM n mm HEA Dulles to Push His Asia Flan Secretary Will Pursue Effort Despite Rebuffs WASHINGTON (U.P Secretary of State John Foster Dulles is deter mined to push for his "united action" plan to save southeast Asia from Communism despite recent diplomatic rebuffs, United States officials said today. t They made the statement as Dulles headed home from the Geneva Far Eastern conference. He was due here tonight. Just a week after the parley opened. Officials said Dulles has pressing problems which should be handled at home. Furthermore, they said, he did not want to remain at Geneva where he appeared to lend stature to a meeting with Red China, whose world position this country does not want to enhance. Russia had a different reason. Radio Moscow declared last night that Dulles left Geneva in "defeat" because "his dictatorial policy" resulted in United States isolation at the conference. Officials said Dulles has these three big jobs ahead of him: 1. Set the record straight on Just how far the United States is willing to go to keep southeast Asia from falling under Communist domination. 2. Try to keep the ball rolling for some sort of an Allied defense pact for the southeast Asia region. 3. Cement relations with Congress on the administration's entire policy toward Asia. Dulles hoped when he first called for "united action" in southeast Asia that he could get America's principal allies to join the plan before the Geneva conference opened. He realized that he could not get a formal pact but nevertheless wanted to show the world the Allies were determined not to let the vital area go Communist. The British and French refused, however, said only that they were willing to explore the matter. They are now waiting to see what the Geneva conference produces. Some American officials think de velopment at Geneva may actually spur the Dulles plan. They feel that while the French are In a desperate situation in Indo-China they are not ready to submit to unreasonable Red demands for negotiating peace Since the Communists appear to be in an unreasonable mood, these officials think the resistance of the French and other allies may stiffen. The result could be added impetus lor tne Dunes plan. Dulles realizes that any hope for his "united action" proposal still ' rests on congressional endorsement. Therefore, one of his first moves will be to report to Congress on Geneva and the Indo-China situation in general. Meanwhile, Senator Raich E Flanders.

Massey Voices Good Neighbor Policy in Address to Congress Visiting Dignitary Says America Can Depend on Canadians as Loyal Friends WASHINGTON U.B Canadian Governor General Vincent Massey told a joint session of Congress today that America can depend on Canadians as "faithful friends and comrades" even though the two coun tries might differ at t'mes on the exact means to achieve peace In the first congressional appear ance of a North Ameri:an-born representative of the British crown, Massey prayed that the long continental tradition of "neighborly good sense" will be reflected elsewhere in the troubled world. Massey is in Washington on his first state visit outside Canada since he was appointed governor general in 1952. Canada, he said, believes with the United States that "the problems of our time cannot be solved by mili tary strength alone. "The line can be held only by the deployment of force, but the objective peace can be won only by the quality of infinite patience," he declared. "In our collaboration, we may not always agree on every detail of the plans we must discuss together, but there is no difference between us on the fundamental aims which we pursue; we may differ now and then on the 'hows but never on the whys.' You may depend on us as faithful friends and comrades." The friendship of the two coun tries, the governor general said, is based on self respect and respect for others. Each country has preserved its traditions and respected the ways of the other and "thus we are better neighbors," he said. Following his speech Mr. Massey arranged to lunch with Acting Sec retary of State Robert Murphy and to visit tne National Art Gallery. Accompanied by Canadian Defense Minister Brooke Claxton and Mrs. Claxton, the governor general flew nere irom Ottawa yesterday. He was guest of honor at a state dinner at the White House last night and he and tne ciaxtons were the overnight guests oi president and Mrs. Eisen hower. Former Red Happy To Be Free in U. S. SAN FRANCISCO (U.R) No Kum Sok, former North Korean pilot who sold a Russian-built Mig fighter to the United States for $100,000, said today he plans to use the money for south Korean rehabilitation. The 22-year-old former Commu nist arrived at San Francisco Air port last night and was greeted by a barrage of flash bulbs and newsmen's questions, which he de scribed as "almost worse than U. S. SabreJeM that I used to face." '1 long for years to be in free country." he said. "I feel very free, Know i can sing Russian songs, south Korean songs, any tons please because I'm free." No said he would spend part of his reward to study political science at the University of Delaware, part to support rus mother who escaped to south Korea In 1950. and the re malnder to help rebuild South Ko rea.

Indo-China (U.R) Shout ing R-d rebels drove to positions less than 500 yards from Brigadier General Christian De Castries' underground headquarters today and a second Communist force overran another strong point on Dien Bien Phu's western flank. The massive new rebel assaults brought the Communists closer than ever to the nerve center operated by De Castries, hero and commander of the beleaguered French Union bastion in northwest Viet Nam. French authorities did not pin point the Reds' latest success, but they indicated that the Communists took the western outpost nicknamed "Huguette," the fourth to fall since Saturday. The fanatical Indo-Chinese Com munists hit Dien Bien Phu's west ern flank after early morning rebel attacks on two eastern strongpoints failed. A news blackout covered the Red advance on De Castries' nerve center, but officials said the Commu nists were closer than the 500-yard point reached last Sunday in suicide assaults. An announcement that the Red Indo-Chinese delegation to the Ge- neya conference had passed through Moscow apparently - triggered the assault. The Reds swarmed out of the trenches with automatic rifles, bay onets and knives and struck at the eastern outposts of "Dominique" and "Elaine," but French machine gun ners cut down the first waves. Another force then attacked the western flank in a bone-chilling rain that prevented French planes from coming to the aid of Dien Bien Phu's defenders.

McCarthy, R., Wis., today offered to take the witness stand immediately in an effort to spsed up the investigation of his row with the Army. But Democratic members of the Democrats Gather For Big Powwow WASHINGTON (U.R) Democratic Party leaders from all over are assembling here for a "Happy Days Are Here Again" rally to launch the 1934 general election campaign. The two-day powwow begins tomorrow and ends Thursday night with one of those $100-a-plate dinners which is expected to net about $150,0)0 less the cost of the chicken and peas, pistachio and coffee actually consumed. That sum would dispose of the current $1C0,C03 deficit but for 'the1 fact that the party will pour it into the campaign to elect a Democratic Congress next November. The assembling party leaders are as happy and confident as Dadper fans on the first day cf a World Series. The week of their meeting, chosen by chance, finds the Eisenhower administration and the Republican Party in the greatest difficulty at home and abroad since the GOP took over in 1953. The two-day affair is billed as a meeting of the Dsmocratic National Committee, but it is more than that. Former President Truman, Adlai E. Stevenson, municipal and state officials, senators and representatives are booked for the program or the audience. Stevenson. Governor Dennis J. Roberts, cf Rhode Island, and Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson, and Hou"e Democratic Leader Sam Rayburn. both of Texas, will jpeak Thursday night.

A proposal to stop the Questioning of Army Secretary Robert T. Stevens was broached by Republican members of the sub-committee. They have been under administration pressure to cut short the televised spectacle, now in its ninth day. This proposal called for reducing the number of "principals" in the investigation from six to two. The Democratis refused to go along. As the sub-committee wrangled publicly about who was responsible for the delay a haggle which delayed testimony for more than an hour these high points were developed , . 1. Army Special Counsel Joseph N. Welch reiterated his belief that if McCarthy were called as the next witness after Stevens, the hearings could be ended with testimony by two more witnesses "at most. Welch identified these as Francis P. Carr. staff director of McCarthy's sub-committee chief counsel. Both aie principals against whom the Army brought charges, along with McCarthy. 2. McCarthy offered to have H. Struve Henscl. assistant defense sec retary, removed as one of the prin cipals til the Army side of the row. but only on the understanding that Henscl would be subject to a later investigation. 3. Frederick V. P. Bryan. Hensers attorney, said his client would agree to be taken out of the case only if McCarthy admitted he was in cluded in "error" in the first place. McCarthy snapped he was "not in error." 4. McCarthy blamed the Army for the failure to arrive at a formula to shorten the hearings. "It appears Mr. Welch has weL-hed on an agreement he has made." McCarthy said. "Apparently the people who Instigated these hearings are now trying tn prolong them." This was because Welch was not sgreeable to ending the Army's case without calling to the stand Cohn and Carr as well as McCarthy. 5. Acting Chairman Karl E. Mundt. R.. S.

They feel further they may be on the verge of an important discovery relating to cancer control. These and other subjects of Soviet research were explained today in a Soviet Embassy publication "New Paths of Soviet Science," which not only gave a fascinating Insight into the state of science in Russia but was significantly less critical of western science than usual. - " . The theory on the origin of life is credited to a member of the Soviet Academy of Sciences. Alexander Oparin, and, in brief, is this: Hydrogen, carbon, ogygen and nitrogen solutions were combined deep in the primeval seas under tremendous pressure Into amino- acid "bricklets." These bricklets built up into com plex protein molocules. The molecules formed into "coacervates" distinctly outlined drops. The drops could exist only if changes in environment helped their stability. Some found favorable conditions acquired a "perfected" struc ture and thus were transformed into the first living things. The subject of life on Mars is being studied by Academician Otto Y. Schmidt, and others. The dark patches on Mars have been noted by all astronomers. The Soviet theory is that these are purple or blue vegetation even though they do not give off spectrum lines for chlorophyll, supposedly a universal constituent of plants. The Soviet tclentlsts say they have found far northern plants on earth which have no chlorophyll spectrum. Cancer Is mentioned In connection with a chain of radical research by Professor Olga Leplnshkaya Rus-alt 'a loneevltv exoert and others. Professor Lepinrhkaya is credited with proving that cells can originate from non-cellular living matter, Thla Is called "living substance."

Meanwhile, a five-man Communist Viet Minh delegation arrived by air to take part in the Indo-China phase of the conference. Indo-China peace talks are ex pected to get under way within 48 hours. GENEVA, Switzerland (U.R) The Far Eastern conference tonight voted to take a two-day recess. It will enable the western powers to iron out their differences and attempt to shape a united policy on both Korea and Indo-China. The western bloc was attempting to hammer tcgether an acceptable elections plan for Korea to counter the rejected Communist formula. Previously South Korea, strongly backed by the United States, had argued that free elections already have been held in South Korea and that all that remains to be done is to hold similarly free elections in, the Communist North. The first hint that the West might now consider an all-Korean election formula came last week from Australian Foreign Minister Richard G. Casey. Britain and France are reported to have backed Casey's view, and informed sources said the United States has indicated H would ga along if President Syngman Rliee'8 South Korean government is agreeable. United States Undersecretary of State Walter Bedell Smith met today with ROK Foreign Minister Pyua Yung-Tai and discussed the compromise election proposal with him. However, there was little hope that the-Communists would accept such a compromise. The key feature of any Allied election plan would be United Nations or some other adequate international supervision. The NoTth Korean and Chinese Communists already have made it clear they would reject such "outside interference."
