He was the party's spokesman on foreign affaire, and had Labor won the last election he would have been foreign secretary. In recent years, however, he underwent a subtle change as the loyal No. 2 man to the moderate, r>rty leader Hugh Gaitskell. When the party went down to defeat again in last October's elections he ignored the opportunity again to lead a militant revolt of the leftwingers for a thorough overhauling of the party's (leadership and policies. When he went to the hospital for an abdominal operation last December, there were expressions of regret and exclamations of "good old Nye" hi some of London's most conservative clubs where the very mention of his name once brought apoplectic rages. The nickname "Nye" was from his first name, pronounced "A-nye'-rin" with the accent on the second syllable. His absence from the political arena brought home to friends and foes alike that be had brought more drama and color to the scene than any man since Sir Winston Churchill's prime. The bouncing Welshman never retracted his advocacy of complete socialism for Britain, including nationalization of industry. But apparently out of loyalty to the party, he decided not to wrack it by leading a revolt against more moderate leadership that decided these views were passe.

He said, however, he does not {regard the setting up of a Soviet "! submarine base us a likelihood, but sucli a thing is a possibility. Eisenhower was asked at his news conference whether he agrees with a statement by Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Tex) that the United States might look for the establishment of such a base. The President said he was not going to make any guesses about such a possibility. Such things are always possible in this world, he said, but he doesn't see much likelihoud. As to what the United States might do in such an event, Eisenhower drew attention to the Ca-j racas resolution for mutual de-' fense of thc Western Hemisphere,! ANSWERS QUESTION WASHINGTON — President Eisenhower anstvers and to the machinery of the Or-| a question today at his press conference. It was his in almost two months. (AP Accuses Khrushchev of Interfering in Election By MARVIN L. ARROUSMITH WASHINGTON (AP)—President Eisenhower today rejected New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller's contention thai America's military strength has deteriorated. • / At a news conference, Ihe President also acre-used Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev of very crude attempts to interfere in this country's presidential campaign. Eisenhower voiced confidence that neither Democrats nor the Republicans will find the Kremlin leader's advice of any value. he estimated for the fiscal year which started July 1 is now realized. Prospects for a surplus of that size have been dashed, the President said, by the failure of Congress to meet his request for higher taxes on gasoline and for an increase in postal rates. As for Rockefeller, Eisenhower] He also mentioned the 700-mil- ganization of American States. Eisenhower said the OAS would no doubt come into play but that in its own interest this country might have to act as it saw fit. Eisenhower said he did not! want to talk at the moment in de- j tail about what U.S. policy might j be in view of the Fidel Castro! government's new law for expropriation of American property! He said the new sugar bill, giving him authority to cut the Cuban quota, reached his desk along with reports and studies by the appropriate departments only a few minutes before the news conference. He. said he thought something would be said on this subject either later today or Thursday. Eisenhower said this country is trying hard to have the Cubans understand that there is no quarrel between the people of this country and them but that the difficulties are caused only by what first press conference Wirephoto) Castro Authorized To Seize Property By ROBERT BERRELLEZ HAVANA (Jft —Fidel Castro's Cabinet today authorized him to expropriate all American property in Cuba and pay for it only if the United States buys more—not less—Cuban sugar at premium prices. The new seizure decree, drafted by the Cabinet at a session lasting beyond midnight, authorized President Osvaldo Dorticos or me prime minister to take $>ver any property owned by U.S. companies or citizens in Cuba "when It said the American owners would be paid in 2-per cent, 30- year Cuban government bonds backed by a special fund. But the fund is to come from 25 per cent of the dollars paid for sugar sales deemed necessary in the national to the United States in excess of interest." The law also provides for ex-; was reminded that the Republican governor has been critical of the administration in the economic as well as military fields, and has contended that U.S. military strength has declined while Russia's has increased. The President commented that since 1953 he has sent eight budgets to Congress. Five, he said, were cut by Congress and three increased—in each case in election years. Military Six-nil ing j The President said that by and large the Democratic • controlled Congresses have agreed with his Republican administration on military spending. It is true, Eisenhower went on, that some' individuals get deeply concerned about our defense position, and some get worried. As lor Rockefeller, he is entitled to his opinions and has a right to express them. Eisenhower added that he doesn't think such views will wreck the Republican party. The President then said Rockefeller's views are his own—and they are not Eisenhower's. In this news conference, his first in eight weeks, Eisenhower dealt also with these other matters: CUBA—The President indicated he would act later in the day or lion-dollar cost of the new federal pay increase—put into effect over his veto—as another factor which will reduce the surplus the administration had forecast in January.

Actually, Eisenhower said, M per cent of capacity today is comparable to 75 per cent a few years ago because of the big increase in production facilities. Steel Production Eisenhower said the rate of steel production immediately after the strike settlement early this year was nothing short of astonishing. As for the general economic; situation, Eisenhower said that during April, May and June this year the output of all goods and services was at the rate of 503 billipn dollars a year, marketf ' also that erap was up by one million in May. CAMPAIGN ~ Eisenhower said that at present his only plans for participation in the presidential and congressional election campaigns are a speech at the GOP National Convention in Chicago the evening of July 26, and a breakfast there the next morning. But in making that statement 10 did no rule out possible additional activity in the fall, PRESIDENTIAL AGE — Asked for his views regarding the age of presidents, a question already figuring in this year's pro-convention campaigns, Eisenhower noted i with a smile that if he serves out .his current second term he will | become the oldest president-in-ol ifice in history. Nearing 70 He will pss that nu'lestone next Oct. 3—outstripping Andrew Jackson. 1 Eisenhower will be 70 Oct. 14. Eisenhower recalled that while president he has suffered three serious illnesses. He said :he doesn't feel that those illnesses have been any decisive factor in his handling of his job! Chuckling a bit, he went on to say that sometimes he may doubt his own intellectual judgment but he never doubts his own heart- that is, his determination to do thc right tiling. NUCLEAR TESTS—Despite difficulties in reaching agreement with Russia, the President said, thc United States and Britain should continue to make every ei ol small cracks. The tornadic force at Beltrees, west of Alton, was described as a development within the larger storm that brought damage to the much-greater area of Alton and suburbs.
