But it assured Red China it would consider applications for individual reporters from that country to come here. % Ambassador U. Alexis Johnson at Switzerland, told Chinese Ambassador Wang Ping-Nan that under U.S. immigration law he was not able to consider entering into an exchange agreement which Wang proposed. The two men met Thursday in the latest of a series of sessions that has been going on at Geneva for more than two years. Wang put forth the proposal for an equal and reciprocal exchange of reporters. His action followed a State Department announcement of Aug. 22 that 24—the number was later raised to 2TB—American newspapers, magazines, broadcasters and the like could send newsmen to Red China. The first Peiping reaction was that -whatever was done would have to be on a basis of reciprocity. Thursday's move was the first! direct diplomatic contact between Washington and Peiping on this issue. It appeared to leave the whole question in deadlock at least for the time. The Red Chinese apparently are trying to maneuver the United States closer to some kind CAIRO Iff — Syria's top military leader held urgent talks with President Nasser and other Egyptian officials today and declared defiantly Syria is prepared to meet all "imperialistic conspiracies."

Afif Bizry, leftist commander in chief of the Syrian Army, said in an interview with the newspaper Al Ahram. "Syria is now fortified against all imperialistic conspiracies and the people and the army are united in one front." Surprise Visit Bizry and Lt. Col. Abdel Hamid Serraj, Syrian Army intelligence chief, arrived Wednesday on a surprise visit that underlined the deepening concern of the two Arab allies over the Syrian crisis. Asked to comment on charges that the U.S. government is seeking to overthrow Syria's regime, Bizry said: "Americans do not only limit their adventures to movies, but they also yield to them in normal life, imagining that a dollar can do anything. They forget that this dollar has no place in a land of hoftor and dignity." Bizry and Serraj went into immediate conferences with Nasser and Egyptian military leaders on their arrival here. As they met, Syria's Acting Defense Minister Khaled Azem said in Damascus he does not believe aggression against Syria* is imminent. But he added that Syria has taken "all defensive measures to face every possibility."

An organizational meeting is planned for early October. 100 Eventually Loveless said member,? of this basic group will be announced in the very near future. These 20 are intended to represent all segments of Iowa's economy and social structure. Ultimately the committee will be expanded to 100 persons, he said. The governor noted that research on Iowa problems has been and is being done by state educational institutions, by state agencies and by private organizations. But he stressed that the study i committee would make use of j such data and tie it all together. "Too frequently findings foil to provide a basis for action because they are not related to other areas of the social and economic structure," Loveless said.

A check for the amount was presented to Philo by G Arthur Minnich Jr., secretary-treasurer of the group. The presentation was the feature of a gathering of the alumni, in the Driftwood room of Hotel Burke.

This annual scholarship coffee was the first meeting of the club since the new officers took office June 1. President is Rvith Evans, and vice president is Mrs. John Gnam. They serve with a board of directors, and the principal purpose of the club is the award of the annual scholarship to a deserving graduate of a Carroll County high school. Chairman of the scholarship committee this year was W. Paul Forney, who spoke briefly. He commented that while the long list of Philo's school, athletic and community activities was impressive, the committee was most inclined toward him after reading letters from his school and church references. All sincerely backed him in his desire and purpose in attending the university.

The plane is owned by General Electric Corporation, and a GE test pilot, Ed Richards, was scheduled to arrive here Thursday afternoon for the test flight. ... General Electric purchased the wrecked plane during the summer from Col. Ewell K. Nold of Grand Prairie, Tex. The company contracted with Hagberg to rebuild the ship and the component parts were trucked here from Texas in late July. General Electric's interest in the seven-place model made famous by the "Winnie Mae" flown by the late Wiley Post, is believed to lie in the fact the aircraft is of wood frame construction with a plywood fuselage. The plane is slated for research work, local airport officials indicated.
