Allies Ask Big 4 Meet Summit' She'll Wed Circus Magnate \ANPA Head Hits Rule of Brcnfaiell (Continued From Page 1) there is the "slightest . . . chance of furthering this great cause of peace." The U. S. agreement to seek a chief-of-state meeting with Russia marked a shift in President Eisenhower's attitude. He long has indicated unwillingness to attend such a conference unless advance prospects of success were attained, in lower-level diplomatic conferences. Administration officials said, however, that the chief executive bowed to strong pressure from Britain and France. They long have favored a top-leve meeting with Russia in the belief it might open the door to better east-west relations. The Big Three notes did not name a time and place for the proposed conference. But it said the new peace-seeking plan should be begun "promptly" and pursued "with patience and determination." The Wesi: proposed- a two-stage process: 1. The Big Four chiefs -- Mr. Eisenhower, Bulganin, British Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden and French Premier Edgar Faure -- should meet for a "limited time" or an "exchange of views." The Big four foreign ministers, who would attend the session, would meet "shortly in advance" to help plan the parley. 2. The "problems" discussed at the top-level meeting would be "examined in detail" by "such methods, organs and participants" as appear most likely to settle the issues. This would be done "as soon as practicable" I after the "summit" meeting. The notes emphasized that the Big Four chiefs "would not undertake to agree upon substantive answers" to the major East- West issues. This was understood to have been one ot the conditions laid down by Mr. Eisenhower. Diplomatic sources here and -in Paris said he also wants the top-level meeting held to less than a week, and to begin without a firm, precise list or "agenda" of topics for discussion. - CHICAGO (UP) -- The Department of Justice is determined to "saddle the press with a continuing injunction," the president of the American Newspaper Publishers Assn. charged Tuesday night.

C.llf., W.d., M«r 11, 1*51 WASHINGTON J--A Pentagon' turndown apparently has ended any immediate chance that Congress will consider promoting Gen. Douglas MacArthur to the rank of general of the armies. Five bills and resolutions have been introduced to give MacArthur that title, heretofore conferred only upon the late Gen. John J. Pershing. Rep. Vinson (D-Ga) said the Department of Defense had written him that singling out MacArthur for the honor would be "misleading" and cause both "misunderstanding and controversies." Vinson, chairman of the House Pershing after allied armies he up the question at present." The committee has jurisdiction Arthur's promotion to the rank created for commanded World War I. Sponsors of the legislation, including House Republican leader Martin of Massachusetts, had suggested the rank be made effective last Jan. 26, MacArthur's 75th birthday. Richard A.

Slocum referred to the expected filing shortly by the Justice Department of an anti-trust suit charging price-fixing in the long-standing advertising agency recognition system. Slocum charged the Justice Department with refusing to discuss the case unless the ANPA agreed beforehand to a consent decree. "We were told we could talk provided the talks would end in a consent decree," Slocum said. "We first had to agree to confess our guilt. The only thing we could talk about would be our sentence," he said.

Duncan, manager of the local exchange area of the General Telephone Co. of legislative programs, outlined the Defense Department's views in a letter to Vinson dated March 18. . Buddeke said that during World War II Congress created special five-star ranks for the four top army and navy officers. MacArthur was one of those. "At that time," Buddeke said, "the Congress took special pains both to assure that each of these officers would hold the same grade and to differentiate between the grades so created and the grade of the armies." To change this now, Buddeke added, "would becloud the earlier action and arouse interservice, ntraservice and popular misunderstanding a n d controversies which would ill serve the nation, ENGAGEMENT of Actress Dodie Heath, 26, to John Ringling North, 51, owner of the Ringling Bros, and Bamum and Bailey Circus, was announced by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W.

The White House disclosed earlier that Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, now in Paris, armament conference in London. The new proposal also softened the familiar Soviet de- muiid for a ban on atomic weapons to a proposal that nations producing nuclear energy concentrate on atomic power for peace.

As iar as major armies are concerned, this would make the potential East-West balance of military p o w e r 3,000,000 to 2,800,000 in favor of the Communists. It was not immediately certain what the Russian plan armaments, the b a n n i n g of atomic weapons and the reduction of the danger of a new war," was made public only eight hours after the West had invited Russia to a top-level cold war peace conference. The Soviet proposal included these highlights: 1. A demand for "immediate measures to decrease international tension and end the cold war." 2. A call for measures by "all governments" to stop "all forms of propaganda for war." 3.

I The note proposed that the; chiefs of state "devote themselves to formulating the issues to be worked on and to agreeing on methods to be followed in exploring situations" to east-west tensions. "This first stage," the note] said, "would lay the foundation' for the second stage in which the problems could be examined in detail by such methods, organs and participants as it appears] would be most fruitful according to the nature of the issues. "This work should be started as soon as practicable after the; meeting of the heads of government." The allies said the proposed machinery would pave the way to "orderly negotiation most likely to bring about agreements by progressive stages." Mr. Eisenhower's offer to meet with the Soviet leaders anywhere was made in an off-the-cuff address to the women's division of the Republican National Committee. Amid cheers of more than 1,000 GOP women, the chief executive said his approach to such a major international conference would not be bogged down by, "m-nor points of protocol." lieves should be enacted "immed- tion that all occupa troops be withdrawn from Germany except for "strictly limited contingents" which would remain "for a specified period." 5.
