(AP Wirephoto Map) WeatherForecast Fracas May Develop Over GOP Second Spot Choice Work Relief Program Here Discussed B> JACK BELL CHICAGO (AP) — Conservative Republicans raised echoes of the 1952 Taft-Eisenhower battle today in opposition to the possible choice of Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. as the GOP vice presidential candidate. Lodge, now serving as United Nations ambassador, fas reported high up on a brief personal list from which Vice President Richard M. Nixon plans to choose his running mate, provided all goes well,and Nixon gets the presidential nomination he expects. Among the practical politicians gathering here for next week's, week's convention there is no shadow of a doubt that once NIXon has named his man the delegates in the end will accept him. But many thought there still is time left to influence Nixon's judgment. In tills connection, Rep. B. Carroll Reece, Tennessee state chair- mail, said he has found strong opposition among backers of the late Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio to having Lodge on the ticket. Reece said the Taft men, who still form a considerable wing* of the party, have tabbed Lodge as the originator of the Texas delegate "steal" charges mat were used by President Eisenhower's associates in the 1952 convention maneuvering. l$atph F. Gates, Indiana national cornmitteeman, said he has been told that the Republican ticket might lose some important midland newspaper support if Lodge is named. He said this was based on opposition to Lodge's so-called internationalist views. John T. Diederich, Kentucky committeeman, is booming home- stater Sen. Thruston B. Morton, the GOP national chairman, for second place on the ticket. Diederich said he had encountered opposition to Lodge from some Taft Republicans. Some Midwesterners are opposing the choice of either Lodge or Morton. They contend the election may turn on how the midland states go, and they want one of their own on the ticket with Nixon. Gov. William G. Stratton of Illinois told a news conference Thursday he thinks there ought to be an open-convention choice of Nixon's running mate. Stratton pushed tor a Middle Western candidate for second place. Among others he named Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen and Rep. Leslie C. Arends of Illinois. House GOP Leader Charles Halleck of Indiana, Secretary of Interior F«ed A. Seaton, Rep. Gerald R. Ford 3r. of Mlchi- j Ford said the Collett was on Public aid officials, with May-1 or P. W. Day, Thursday conferred on the possibilities of establishing a program of work! relief for a few men on public assistance rolls here. The work relief idea had been given impetus by a previous meeting of officials called by Stephan Kennedy, township supervisor and hi charge of assistance (formerly called "relief") rolls. Apparently, the main obstacle to an immediate start on the program, which would put able bodied men to work from the assistance rolls, is the matter of determining how the workmen will be covered by insurance. The assistance workmen will be employed only on jobs for which there is no budget appropriation or regular city work force. Those on assistance will be permitted to work at wages prevailing for the job on which they are employed —but only until their time equals the cost of the assistance which will be allotted/ The type of work to be done is capsuled in the term "cleanup". The start of the program is expected as soon as the insurance matter is settled. Those who conferred with Mayor Day are Frank P. Higgins of Belleville, regional director of Public Assistance; Lester L. Gentry, county representative of the Illinois' Public Aid Commission; Alton Supervisor Kennedy. Destroyer Was Going at 20 Knots LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP)-A destroyer skipper says he was traveling at 20 knots—in a fog where visibility was 300 yards— when another destroyer loomed suddenly ahead of him. The two collided and 11 sailors died. Cmdr. Albert Ford acknowledged at a naval court of inquiry Thursday that even under ideal conditions it would take 500 yards to stop his ship, the USS Collett. Alton and vicinity: Increasing cloudiness today with scattered afternoon and evening thundershowers, continued hot and humid; considerable cloudiness with occasional thundershowers tonight and Saturday; high today about 90; low tonight 70-75; high Saturday in the upper 80's. Removal Of Debris Continuing Much June 30 storm debris, mainly fallen branches, remains to be removed from the city streets, but City Engineer Thomas F. Griffin said today that it is hoped to complete the pick up task within another week. Nine trucks are being used for hauling branches to the city disposal grounds, and removal of hazardous hanging branches by a firm of tree specialists is continuing. In & plan to expedite the debris removal program, said Griffin, Assistant. City Engineer Guy Fairfield has stationed himself at the city garage to supervise and coordinate the activities. Many calls from property owners reporting unremoved street litter are still being received. Other Pressing Work Meantime, said Griffin, both New United States Policy Will Call Soviet Bluffs By JOHN 8CAIJ WASHINGTON (AP> - The United States has embarked on a policy of calling the Soviet Unon's bluff each time it believes Kremlin leaders are threatening action they never will dare carry out. Secretary of State Christian A. Herter disclosed that tough new line Thursday In blasting Soviet threats to send troops to the violence-racked Congo. Abandoning his usual diplomatic caution, Herter bluntly assailed as a reckless bluff Moscow's widely advertised claims that it wants to ielp stamp out what tt calls West- prn imperialism in the new African republic.

Responsible diplomatic authorities said today more firm rejoinders of this kind can he expected from administration leaders in handling Moscow's virtually unprecedented campaign of. threats, protests, insults and propaganda. This reflects a high-level administration belief that the Soviet threats represent more phony bluster than menace. It is believed that in all of Moscow's output so far, threats have been carefully hedged to sound frightening without committing the Soviet Union to action. The call-the-bluff policy will carry one step farmer the admin istration's determination to fire bac' tough and fast at Moscow's anti-American propaganda thrusts. Administration leaders are reported convinced that stern language, backed up by a readiness to act to protect vital interests, offers the best hope of compelling the Kremlin to call off its campaign. Risks are involved in any such strategy, they acknowledged. But they said there is no alternative. They said mildly worded answers or hesitation may be viewed by the Kremlin as signs of weakness and confusion in a United States seemingly preoccupied with an election campaign. Top officials are under instruc- cy problems. As a practical politician — he is a former governor of New York — Harriman presumably also will talk a lot of politics with the Dem* ocratic presidential nominee. Kennedy Is concerned deeply about factional fights among New York Democrats. But Kennedy told newsmen Wednesday the talks with Haiti, man would be mostly about foreign policy. The senator will receive Saturday from Allen W. Dulles, Central Intelligence Agency director, the first of the secret foreign policy briefings President Eisenhower has authorized for the Republican and Democratic campaign- bearers.- Harriman and two other Ken nedy advisers will fly in during the day. Pierre Salinger, the senator's press secretary, said Archibald Cox, Harvard Law School faculty member, and Theodore G. Sorsensen, a Washington aide to Kennedy, were coming In to "go over a whole wide gamut" of problems. This means more rounds of conferences for Kennedy on a work- and-rest vacation at his summer home.

In the old church, since the space was limited, the organ was cramped and didn't have full use of all stops. In its new installation the organ will be complete. The Rev.

Many area persons have been following the development and building of the new church sanctuary. Watched with interest Tues- One of the Kremlin's top diplomats, Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily V. Kuznetsov, was to deliver a detailed, all-afternoon speech which Soviet sources said would conclude with a demand for condemnation of the United States as an aggressor. The Soviet complaint to the Council was titled "New aggressive acts by the Air Force of the United' States against the Soviet Union, creating a threat to universal peace." The complaint grew out of the shooting down of a U. S. RB47 reconnaissance plane over the Barents Sea by a Soviet jet fighter July 1. The Soviet Union charged that the aircraft was over Soviet waters on an espionage mission. The Russians are holding two of the plane's six crewmen and arc expected to try them as -pies. The Russians recovered the body of the plane's pilot, and the oth- jer three crewmen are missing. The United States claims the plane was surveying magnetic lines of force in arctic waters for mapping and was shot down over international waters. The State Department said it was never closer than 30 miles to the Soviet shores. A midwestern candidate, Stratton said, "would help the party and greatly strengthen the ticket because it would mean a nominee familiar with the major problems that face agriculture and industry."

At the time the United States was about to outline new proposals. "Our efforts to get the Soviet Union to return to the conference table through normal diplomatic channels have not met with success," Eisenhower said. "The need for disarmament in the present world situation is too important to set aside at the present time when deliberate efforts are being made to increase tensions." That was an obvious allusion to the many-sided anti-American campaign the Soviet Union has been carrying on »since Premier Nikita Khrushchev wrecked the Paris summit conference last May. Elsenhower went on to say that under its charter the United Na tions has primary responsibility in the disarmament field. Then be announced that he had instructed Lodge to seek "an early meeting of the Disarmament Com< mission of the United Nations so that we and other member of the international community can continue to search for ways and means to achieve the universal desire to reduce the risk of war by controlled steps of disarm* ment." Such a meeting of the 82- nation membership requires a ma jority vote, at least 42 votes. After the President's call Thursday night, U.N. diplomats expressed belief that the U.S. request for an early meeting would be approved. However, many delegates — including some Western Allies — were extremely cool toward the Idea. These delegates expressed belief there appears to be little prospect for disarmtmsnt progress vnile the tension in East- West relation* is mounting.
