WHK.T ootmrat Canada's Pearson • / Warns of Failure At Geneva Meeting GENEVA (AP) — Canada's Lester B. Pearson warned today that a failure of the Geneva conference might make i necessary for nations which feel increasingly threatened to devise fresh ways and means to meet such threats. Pearson made Ms declaration be-«t> fore the 19-nation meeting; on Korea. He did not elaborate-on this point, but it was viewed as a reference to U.S. efforts to create an Asian defense alliance along lines of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The Canadian foreign secretary made a brief reference to an appeal from the Prime Ministers of five Asian nations for a negotiated settlemen tof the Indochina prob- First Baptist Church Here Opens Revival 'A week-long revival began las night -at the First Baptist Church here with Dr. Joe W. Burton of Nashville, Tenn., editor of Home lem. He added that if the Geneva jLife Magazine, delivering the ser- conferehce failed in this "the con- mons. sequences will be bad, and prob- Services will be conducted at 7:45 ably far-reaching." " each night through Friday. '^Failure here," he said, "may Dr. Burton will speak on "Christ, well necessitate further collective | the answer in Our Home" tonight Other sermon topics will include: consderation by those who, as £ result of such failure, will feel in creasingly threatened, of further ways and means to meet that trheat. This, in turn, may harden And make more dangerous the great and tragic division in the world which now exists." AH Asia Mentioned posed to be limited to Korea at this afternoon's closed meeting, Asian problem. He delivered a few sharp thrusts to the demands of Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov and Red China's Chou En- lai for a program of Asia-for-the- Asians. "Asia for the Asians," he said, "is not the same as— indeed is the opposite of — Asia for the Comin- form. "It would be no contribution either to Asian peace or prosperity, independence or dignity, if the Japanese East Asia Co-Prosperity Chinese East ASian Co-Communist Empire.'' Pearson defended the United States against ommunist charges of. having an aggressive imperialistic policy toward Asia. "As the leader of the delegation of a country which is a neighbor of the most powerful state in the world." he said, " lean say with a conviction based on our nation's experience that the people of the United States are neither aggressive nor imperialist, and it is the people of the United States that freely elect their governments."

American - supplied transports roared in to parachute more men and tons of war materiel as soon as the Vietminh charges suspended. The new troops included nearly 150 men • who had volunteered to aid their battle-weary comrades. French pilots spotted hundreds of Russian-made Molotov trucks moving into the rebel encampments in the hills encircling Dien Bien Phu, bringing fresh troops and Chinese-supplied food and ammunition for the besieging legions. Heavy rainstorms late yesterday grounded the French warplanes, halting their desperate bombing and strafing attacks on the Viet- ninh concentrations and supply convoys. A Frencn spokesman earlier had credited the suspension in the Vietminh assault to the "extremely ieavy losses" he said the rebels had suffered. Though the French rave no estimate in figures, the ebel dead and wounded were be- ieved to run into the thousands. Losses Heavy Of their own losses in the Saturday-Sunday assault, the French said only that they had been heavy. The flow of U. S. supplies to the French Union forces continued. The 14.000-ton aircraft carrier Bois Belleau—the Belleau Wood until she was loaned to the French last September—brought new squadrons of replacement fighters and bombers to haiphong. (The New York Times in a dispatch from Washington said the United States had agreed to fly more French Union paratroop reinforcements to Indochina. The Times said the second airlift in U. S.

Couple Drowns at Spa HOT SPRINGS i/P! — A Negro couple drowned yesterday in nearby Lake Hamilton when the boat i Court Penalizes Four in which they were fishing sank. ' ington, in the |f>Jew York Herald Tribune, said the United States had turned down a French request for B29 bombers for Indochina. The Americans rejected the request, the Herald Tribune said, on the ground the French do not have the bases from which to operate the big' planes, the pilots ready to fly them or the targets against which they would be most effective.) The dead were identified as Joseph Hannah, 42, and his 40- year-old wife, Anna Mae, of Hot Springs. The .bodies were recovered.

Hortt, who said he lived in Mesquite, Nev., at the time of the atomic explosions between March 17 and M 25, 1953, alleged that the atomic dust caused them serious physical injuries, nervous shock and disability. Pravda Says U. S. Lost at Geneva MOSCOW (/P)—Pravda today described the Geneva agreement to invite the Vietminh to take part in Indochinese talks there as a "new defeat for American policy.." The Communist party newspaper linked the agreement with Secretary of State Dulles' long-planned said it was a "flight", from Geneva. The newspaper's dispatch from Geneva said Dulles' departure, combined with the Indochinese agreement, showed the United States was "compelled, if not to make a complete retreat, at least to back up."

(Continued from Page » for shortening the hearings." "First, last and always we must always plow the - long furrow " Welch stated firmly. McCarthy said he would accept the Dirksen proposal to end the hearings after Stevens' and McCarthy's testimony if it were clear that such action would not dismiss the charges he had made against H. Struve Hensel, assistant secretary of Defense, and these charges possibly could be considered later. "If the proceedings are to end." McCarthy said, "the Hensel matter will be a very important element in the case so far as motives are concerned." Hensel's attorney, Frederick P. Bryan, balked at McCarthy's suggestion. It is Hensel's position, Bryan stated, "that there is nothing to those charges," and that they are not collateral to the issues. Withdrawal of the charges "without a statement from Sen. McCarthy that he is in error is not acceptable to him," Bryan said in behalf of Hensel. McCarthy retorted the charges were "not in error," and he would agree to withdrawal of the Hensel charges only if they are considered separately. Mundt said those portions of the charges against Hensel involving his "guilt or innocence" in connection with organization of a Navy supply firm in 1944 were 'not properly before the commit- ;ee." There will be "no full scale nvestigation of the transactions in 1944," he stated. 'McCarthy's "bill of particulars" in the present controversy asserts hat Hensel profited from a pri- ate ship supply firm while a Tavy department procurement of- icial during World War n. The bill of particulars contends urther that Hensel masterminded .n Army report making accusa- ions against McCarthy and his taff, and attributes to Hensel the motive of averting an investiga- ion by .McCarthy of Hensel's World War II activities. Hensel denied McCarthy's harges entirely. He said further hat the Internal Revenue Service ad been over all details of- the ; usiness which McCarthy ques- loned, and. had found nothing gainst him. The first-news on today's devel- pments came before the. hearings ven opened, with word from !.a ource close to McCarthy that McCarthy might take the stand to- ay. 8 Cities Plan Natural Gas Installation LITTLE ROCK (#)—A joint application for the installation of gas facilities was filed yesterday with Arkansas Public Service Commission by eight East Arkansas municipalities and Mid South Gas Co. Cost of the proposed transmission lines and distribution systems is estimated at $1,742,100.

Mid South would lease and operate the systems for 20 years with an option to buy at any time during that period. The municipal partners in the joint program, plan to finance the improvements with proceeds from bond issues. KOREA FOREIGN AID v (Continued from Page 1) gressional leaders on Geneva. The Eisenhower administration's Asia policy came in for criticism in the House yesterday, where Rep. Lanham (D-Ga) declared in a speech that the administration is set for "abject surrender" at Geneva. Lanham, a-member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said the administration has given up the initiative in Asia and has "merely resigned itself" to losing Indochina. Lanham forecast that the talks at Geneva Would produce partition of Indochina or a colition government there, "either of which -will mean ultimate triumph of communism." "The last 10 days." he told the House, "have certainly brought disillusionment and disgust to ;hose of us who expected bold and timely action to save Indochina." farmers to register so a vaccination schedule may be drawn up.

But they can get 'here in little more than an hour by plane once a starting tim* for the talks is set. May Invite Others These four delegations — together with representatives of the i Big Four and Red China — will ! make up the conference, which will seek to end the bitter ungle fighting in Indochina. First, however, the group will decide whether other countries will be invited to take part. A Soviet source said Russian Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov would propose that India. Burma, Thailand and Indonesia be added. Observers said this might only be a gesture. The United States is anxious to keep the conference limited. The Soviet informant said Molotov was not prepared to insist on bringing in other countries if this jeopardized the parley. Apparently the Russians are quite content that they were able to get the Vietminh seated in the talks. In Moscow, the Communist party organ Pravda hailed the agreement to invite the Vietminh as a "new defeat for American policy." The rapid progress made in setting up the Indochinese phase of the conference caught many delegates by surprise. They had expected much more East-West bargaining on the procedure and composition of the parley. In Paris, the French Cabinet voiced satisfaction today that agreement had been reached here to open the Indochina talks. Most observers had expected the question of Red China's status to delay or even deadlock the conference. It now looks as though the question will not be raised formally at all. Both Molotov and Red Chinese Premier-Foreign Minister Chou En-lai have insisted in public statements that Chou has the same status here as the Big Four foreign ministers. But the Communists have avoided making this an open issue. Jong's Disease Shots Planned Farmers desiring to have female alves vaccinated for Bang's dis- ase should contact County Agent £eith Bilbrey sometime this week. A vaccinator from the USDA's Bureau of Animal Industry in Little lock is to be in the county within hree weeks. Mr. Bilbrey stated.
