PAOTMX BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, APRIL 12,1954 Philippines Divided On Issue of Backing U, S. Warning to Reds MANILA (AP) — President Ramon Magsaysay called tone out today in the face of an apparent choice between backing the United States in a warning to Red China to stay out of the Indochina war or splitting his troubled administration deeper. •• Mag&aysfty has said Philippines Commodity And Stock Markets- N«w York Cotton 3401 3418 3378 3377 3377 3375 Memphis Soybeans 371 256 371 256 371 256 371 256 Chicago Soybeans May ....376 July .... 374 Sept ....

However, the administration's foreign policy spokesman, Sen. Claro M. Recto, has said the question of which way Indochina goes is "none of the Philippines' business." After a top policy meeting yesterday — with Recto excluded — Magsaysay said he will seek an immediate conference with the United States on the Indochina problem. He did not say yes or no to the proposal of U. S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles for a united front against Red domination of Indochina. Definite Choice Sought However, Vice President Carlos P. Garcia asked for a definite choice before Saturday, when he leaves for the Geneva conference on Korea anr 1 Indochina. "We cannot afford to dilly-d?J!y on Dulles' invitation . . ." he said. Magsaysay obviously was in the midst of a chips-down struggle for power with the Recto faction of the administration Nacionattsta party less than four months after his inauguration. Recto revived the touchy "Asia for Asians" slogan in a speech this weekend. Magsaysay last month had, in effect, knocked it down with a, statement that the Philippines stood for "self-determination and independence of all Asian nations" with international cooperation under the United Nations. Recto said he considered his exclusion from the meeting with Magsaysay "a personal rebuff." However, he termed the results "a complete reversal" of the government plan, to join the anti-Bed front .and added: "I am glad that party leaders A T and T 164 3/4 j prevailed upon him to withhold Amer Tobacco 62 1/4 Anaconda Copper 35 5/8 Beth Steel 595/8 Chrysler . 62 1/4 Coca-Cola . 124 1/4 Gen Electric 1083/4 Gen Motors 681/2 Montgomery Ward 60 1/8 N Y Central 21 3/4 Int Harvester 30 1/2 Republic Steel 513/8 Radio . 27 7/8 Socony Vacuum 40 1/2 Studebaker 19 1/8 Standard of N J 81 3/4 Texas Corp 693/8 Sears . 61 U S Steel 43 7/8 Sou Pacific 41 7/8 Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, HI., Uft—(USDA)—Hogs 11,000; moderately active; -uneven; 180 Ib up 1596 lower than Friday's average; fully 25 or more lower after first round; lighter weights in small supply, steady to weak; sows 25-50 lower; bulk choice 180-240 Ib 27.2575; several hundred head early mostly under 230 Ib or mostly choice No. 1 and 2 27.85; 240-270 Ib 26.50-27.50 ;few 270-300 Ib 25,7536.75; 150-170 Ib 27.00-75: sows 400 Ib down 24.50-25.25; heavier sows 33.50-24.25; boars 17.50-21.00.

DULLES (Continued from Page 1) Washington to press his contention that the West can negotiate with the Communists in Geneva only from a "position of strength," and that such a position can be reached only through the strong declaration of united action. On his arrival yesterday, he and Eden displayed no evidence of any rift in their airport statements. Dulles said he was sure his talks with the British leaders "in great intimacy . . . will prove profitable to both our countries as well as others." Eden remarked: "I am confident that the work that we shal 1 have to do together will be of service not only to each other's country but to the understanding and peace of the world." The two diplomatic chiefs began their discussions informally last night at dinner, at the home of U. S. Ambassador Winthrop Aidrich. The labor attack on the U. S. secretary's visit was spearheaded by John Strachey, minister of war in the Labor government, and Jennie Lee, member of Parliament and wife of the party's left-wing leader, Aneurin Sevan. "For us to agree with America in attacking the Chinese mainland Would be insanity itself," Strachey told a party rally. "That would be the royal road to a third world war and a third world war now means certain extermination for the British people." Miss Lee told another party meeting: "We must tell Dulles that we cannot take a stand (on Indochina) . . If there are certain Americans who are now wondering whether they are going to drop a hydrogen bomb on the mainland of China or in Indochina, they have to be told quite clearly they cannot continue that policy and hope for the continued friendship and cpopera- tion of the British people." London's morning newspapers were generally hospitable to Dulles' visit, though they voiced no support for his mission. The Kremlin, meanwhile, trained its loudest propaganda guns on Dulles and his mission. The Soviet Communist party organ Pravda denounced him in a long article which Moscow radio broadcast. Dulles' call for united action in Sen. Griswold Of Nebraska Dies at 60 WASHINGTON (A — Sen. Dwight P. Griswold (R-Neb), three times governor of his state and former governor of the American aid mission to Greece, died early today after a heart attack. He was §0. Death, attributed to a coronary occlusion, came shortly after midnight at the naval hospital at suburban Bethesda, Md. Mrs. Griswold was at the bedside. 'Griswold had been In the Senate since January 1953. He was elected to fill out two years remaining in the term of the late Sen. Kenneth S. Wherry. He had not announced publicly whether he would seek reelection this fall but had told friends he expected to be a candidate. No change in tne political lineup of the Senate is likely. The governor of Nebraska, Robert C. Crosby, is a Republican and presumably Will appoint a Republican successor to serve until the November election. The Senate composition is now 46 Republicans, 48 Democrats and 1 Independent. Hall Sees Two Major Issues In Campaign NEW YORK UP)—Chairman Leonard W. Hall of the Republican National Committee said today the results of November's elections will hinge on two issues — "How we insured prosperity and how we met the Communist threat." Continued GOP control of Congress is at stake this year, and Hall said, "the voters will turn away from any party or any man who does not face both issues squarely, frankly and unashamed of the record." "I say to you the Republican Party is the only political organization in this country that has consistently recognized the menace of Communism in its proper scope— worldwide," Hall said in remarks prepared for a meeting of the Women's National Republican Club. "You have an administration which has the will, demonstrated by performance, to keep the initiative we have seized from the global Communist conspiracy," Hall said yesterday he expects President Eisenhower to be a candidate for re-election in 1956. Hall maintained that the nation's economy is sound and prosperous and said "professional mourners (and) oracles of despair . . . are trying to 'talk' us into depression for their selfish political gain." Globemasters Sent To Aid Indochina PUSAN, Korea Ufl — Navy ships today replaced huge Air Force C124 Globemasters in the morale job of transporting American troops to Japan for rest leave. The Globemasters were diverted last week to the emergency Indochina airlift. The ships will handle only a trickle of troops in comparison with the big planes, which transported as many as 1,000 men daily. Indochina, said Pravda, was only a cover for "extending the war." It asserted that "no threats by the imperialists will be able to stop the just national liberation struggle in colonial countries." OFFERS REWARD - Maj.- Gtn. Arthur &.

AP Science Reporter ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. C¥5—New evidence that cancers could be caused by viruses hitchhiking rides through our lives, but attacking only some of us, was described today. We could acquire the virus hitchhikers very early in life, or even before we were born. They would ride harmlessly until something happened. Something could make the virus suddenly dangerous. Or something could change in our bodies so the virus could take the wheel. Support for this theory was described to the American Association for Cancer Research by Dr. H. Gross of the Veterans Administration Hospital, New York, He finds that in mice a "virus" hitchhiker can be the cause of leukemia, the cancer of the blood. He begins with .a strain or family line of mice which get leukemia spontaneously. He grinds up the spleen, liver and other organs of such mice, and prepares an extract which contains any tiny particles or viruses for leukemia in those organs. Then he injects this extract into baby mice of a different strain, a strain which rarely gets leukemia spontaneously. He gives them the injection before the baby mice are more than 6 hours old, a time when their resistance presumably would be low. Most of these injected mice develop leukemia by the time they are 10 months old. This indicate! the injection gave them a virus of some agent which lay dormant for a time, until some change occurred. The virus hitchhiker could have turned "mean" or changes within the mouse let th« virus start to grow. Gross finds evidence that th« virus can be transmitted by either the mother or father mouse of the leukemia-susceptible family. Even the embryo or unborn baby of th« susceptible strain contains the mysterious agent for leukemia. An extract made even from the embryo can pass it on to baby mice of the resistant strain or family. Now gross finds that the extract cause either leukemia or a cancer of the salivary gland in the neck In the injected mice. When prepared one way, it causes leukemia. Prepared another way, it brings on the neck cancer. The explanation for this may be the presence of two kinds of virus particles, one larger than the other. The bigger one, he suggests, could be the hitchhiker^or leukemia, the smaller one the agent for the neck cancer. It is also possible that one single particle is causing both diseases. Most Poisonous Mushrooms of the Amanitft group cause more deaths than all other poisonous mushaooms combined. No antidote is known for their poison, the chemical action of which is not understood.

"The guy who buys a '54 Merc will be getting a really new car, not a warmed- over old one. Some of Merc's competitors are ... overdue for a change.

"161-HP PUSH, BUT DRINKS NO MORE GAS THAN BEFORE" Wilbur Shaw POPULAR SCIENCE MONTHLY Read these quotes from Wilbur Shaw, President of the Indianapolis Speedway. "Three years ago a Mercury engineer told us that the men in his department would never be satisfied until they designed an engine that ate up a lot less of its own power. Well, they've done it! "When I drove the car on the test track in Dearborn, Mich., and again on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, I was struck by the smoothness of the power pick-up as the accelerator went down."
