Russian Aims Are Puzzling Dulles, Ike Wary of Forthcoming Parley By JAMES MAR LOW Associated Fr<?ss >"cu* AnaJxot WASHINGTON «■>— The American government doesn't know what the Russians are up to . That point stands out clearly in Secretary of State Dulles' tarn 'o "^tion. Lately the Communists have been mild and to a degree cooperative. They let Austria have independence. They have agreed to talks among the Big Four powers— the United States, Britain, France. Russia — at the highest level. Why? Dulle3 doesn't know. He frankly expressed puzzlement in his broadcast Tuesday night. Although President Eisenhower said a "new dawn may be coming." he and Dulles cautioned against expecting too much of the talks. Little Enthusiasm Dulles and Eisenhower, both of whom had been frigid for years to a top-level meeting with the Russians, will now both meet with them. Neither man has shown much enthusiasm for the idea. Britain and France persuaded Dulles to persuade Eisenhower to take part. This whole Russian performance may be phony. There's a chance It isn't, that they really want peace and are filling to pay a price for it in the form of con cessions they never would make before. If they do back up ft bit, thi Confesses to Murder; She's 'Not Worried' . -TULSA, Okla. Iff)— After pleading guilty Tuesday to poisoning hus band No. 5, Grandma Nannie Doss admonished her daughter not worry because "I'm not worried. The surprise plea, entered in District Court after the confessed poisoner of four husbands visited by the daughter, reversed her earlier plea of innocent. The daughter, Mrs. Melvina Hed-rick, born of Mrs. Doss' first marriage to Charley Bragg, told a newsman her visit from Lexington, -JN.C, had nothing to do with her mother's sudden decision to tell the court she was guilty of killing Samuel Doss, 59, with rat poison. Mrs. Doss, who had been scheduled for trial next month for Doss' death last Oct. 10, faces either life in prison or death. Judge Elmer Adams explained carefully to the 49-year-old widow the possible punishment he will decide on May 31. County Arty. J. Howard Edmondson said he would ask for death in the electric chair. Public defenders Quinn Dickason and Gordon L. Patten advised their client to enter the plea in belief she would receive the life term and later be commited to a state mental hospital. A sanity hearing jury this month took only 15 minutes to decide the cheerful widow was legally sane and could be tried. Jets Set Distance Record NEW CASTLE. Australia tfi — Four U. S.

Dulles privately is reported to believe it will take many months. ^perhaps years, to work out agree ments witn tne soviet union on great world issues.
