LIMITED USE Supervisor C. B. Bull suggested only limited use of the courts area. The board decided to investigate this with the Judges. The board Indicated the Municipal Courts will be situated in the downtown area. They must be removed from their present location because of a city parking garage program, The county has received a half-dozen offers to rent space, including three new ones yesterday. The latest proposals are from the Hotel Stockton for enough space (17,112 square feet) for the Municipal Court and related functions for $4,200 a month, from Angelo Sangulnettl for 18,000 square feet at 145 N. Hunter for $3,960 a month, and from R. P. Bowe and Associates for a new building at Channel and Hunter streets for $21,900 year.

Personnel Director Randall Prevo explained the Increases are designed to bring county salaries into line with agencies with which the county competes for help. MUST COMPETE Bull questioned the validity of comparing local wages with hose paid in some Southern California counties. He said only contiguous areas should be used. Prevo said local salaries are used when the county recruits ts help locally, but contended the county must compete over wide area to fill some positions. Bull also questioned granting raises July 1. Customarily the county has delayed increasing salaries until September or October after adoption of the budget. "I want to know how much money is coming in before deciding, said Bull If we can do it without a tax rate increase, it is all right SOME REIMBURSEMENT Helnbockel agreed with Bulls position. County Administrator Charles Kenyon said the net cost of the increase to the county would be $222,000, because part of the raises to welfare and highway department employes will be reimbursed by the state and federal gov-erments. The $222,000 figure would represent a 6-cent Increase in the tax rate.

This might be the beginning of the most serious political crises in years, said Stock-holms-Tidnlngen. In neutral Austria, the in dependent Die Presse said the Soviets seem no longer interested in relaxation of international tension. Former French Premier Paul Reynaud foresaw a reversal of the policy of peaceful co-exlstenence and even the friendship that Khrushchev developed during his stay in the United States and France' MILITARY PRESSURE? Some Paris newspapers saw the Soviet premiers attitude a reflection of pressure from the military at home. Foreign editor Roger Masslp of Figaro said the military chiefs in Moscow had been profoundly disturbed to learn that for four years the territory of the U.S.S.R. had been flown over and photographed. He suggested that Marshal Rorion Malinovsky might be hovering at Khrushchev's side at the conference as a watchdog. The mass circulation Pari slen said Eisenhower had shown himself to be most conciliatory, but that Khrushchev brushed aside French and British attempts at mediation. The Communist LHumanlte supported Khrushchev. Elsenhower, duly warned, holds in his hands the fate of the conference, it said. Two independent papers in Frankfurt, Germany, carried Identical headlines: Khrushchev Torpedoes Summit Conference. Ike Makes a Surprise Call Continued From Page 1) I Demo Asks Probe of Spy 'Blunders' WASHINGTON, May 17 AP) Sen. Mike Mansfield (D-Mont.) called In the Senate today for a full Investigation bf what he called the blunders" of the spy plane incident Mansfield, the assistant Democratic leader, spoke out after Majority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas had urged unity among Americans in the face of new international crises he said may follow collapse of the summit conference. Telling the Senate it seems evident the determination of the American people is going to be tested as never before, Johnson said: If there have been mistakes, responsibility will be assessed coolly and objectively. But one mistake we cannot afford to make right now is to weaken the free world by division within our own ranks. UP TO CONGRESS Mansfield on a slightly different tack said it is up to Congress "at the proper time to trace the chain of command or lack of it that set in motion the U-2 flight, this flight which has undercut the deeprooted desire of the people and policies of the United States for peace. The blunders involved in that Incident and let us call a spade a spade the blunders in that incident and its handling are for this nation to face, Mansfield said. MUST FIND OUT He went on: We shall find out why, on one day, the Congress and the people of the United States are told by the Secretary of State that, in effect, it is the policy of the United States to sanction the contlnunce of reconnaissance flight across the borders of another nation, and why the vice-president, on a TV appearance last Sunday, confirmed this policy. We shall find out why this happens at one time, and then, subsequently, in Paris, the President tells Mr. (Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev and the world that such flights already have been halted by his order and are not to be resumed.

A delight you can serve In good taste. tion to todays session at the suggestion of Macmillan. Motorcycle messengers vainly sped the invitation to Sezanne, about 75 miles from Paris, where Khrushchev had gone on a motor tour. Gen. De Gaulle knows my position, Khrushchev said then. He knows very well we wont attend a conference as long as the Americans will not give us satisfaction. A bit earlier, in a sidewalk interview, Khrushchev said he was ready to return to Moscow if his demands were not accepted. Laughing as he talked with newsmen, the premier said that unless Eisenhower apologizes and admits that America made an aggression against the Soviet people the conference will not start and I will return home. EISENHOWER STERN Before today's session of the three western leaders Eisen hower Issued a statement saying that if Khrushchev accepted the Invitation to this meeting the President woul assume that meant the Soviet premier had dropped his demands respecting the plane incident. The Big Three cooled their heels in the session in Elysee Palace before Khrushchevs embassy statement made his stand emphatic. The Western leaders adjourned after a two-hour session. President Eisenhower was stem and unsmiling as he left the Elysee Palace. Macmillan looked grave. A French delegation communique on the meeting took note of the absence of the Soviet premier and said De Gaulle noted that in these conditions the scheduled discussions could not take place. A De Gaulle spokesman was asked if the summit conference had ended and replied: "You mean it has never started. He declined further comment. WOULD MEET DE GAULLE While he rejected a Big Four gathering, Khrushchev said he was willing to call on De Gaulle. If it is true that Gen. de Gaulle wants to meet with me I am ready to return to the Elysee, he said. De Gaulle apparently planned to try to bypass the bitter Soviet-American dispute over the spy plane. Instead he apparently planned to try to get discussion started on such topics as disarmament and the German Issues. White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty explained to newsmen that President Eisen hower had agreed to a second meeting because it was to be held on the Issues originally set for discussion at the conference. PROPAGANDA BANNED A British spokesman said Eisenhower made clear he would not attend any more propaganda sessions he wants to get down to business as Macmillan does. It was certain, however, the U. S. President would go no further than his announcement yesterday that the American flights over Soviet territory have been suspended and will not be resumed. 1 workers last year. Kenyon said department heads were added to the civil service recommendations because several assistant department heads were proposed for Increases.
