BLYnfEYtLLl /ABIC.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, JULY 7, 195* Eyes Draftees For Indochina Mendes-France Asks Okay of Conscripts For Reinforcements PARIS (AP) — Premier Kerre Mendes-France said today he will ask the National Assembly to approve the sending of draftees to reinforce French forces in Indochina if the Geneva negotiations end in failure. The Premier also told the lawmakers he would be leaving soon to take personal charge of the French delegation at Geneva. '•'I have already said that the reasons to hope for a favorable and honorable outcome are present," he declared. "That is still my opinion today." The.Premier told the Assembly there would be no means of assuring the safety of French soldiers already in Indochina if conscripts were not sent. Since the war started in 1947, all the fighting in Indochina has been done by French volunteers, North African-troops, and Foreign Legionnaires. The dispatch of draftees to a combat zone was specifically forbidden by the Na tional Assembly. Mendes-France reminded the deputies he has promised to resign 'unless he can bring an end to the fighting by July 20. He also reminded them he has promised to take.all necessary measures in the meantime to provide for the , safety of French forces already on the scene. The 'Premier said French military leaders concurred in his de- call On conscripts if the attempts for a negotiated settlement fail. The Premier recently conferred with Gen. Paul Ely, France's new commander in chief in Indochina.

Cancer Tests Said Successful NEW YORK OR — Development of a chemical compound that produced permanent cure of one type of transplated cancer in 100 per cent of its trials on rats has been reported by the Sloan- Kettering Institute. The Institute, which made the announcement yesterday, noted that "no chemical cures of any form of cancer in man have been achieved to date." The Institute, research unit for the Memorial Center for Cancer & Allied Diseases, has the largest chemical testing program among cancer research units. The report said the drug that routinely cured all cases of Jensen sarcona in rats is known as TFM — triethylene melamine — and was developed at the institute. • . The Institute's seventh annual progress report summed up the results of its research in chemical injection aimed at starring or poisoning cancer cells in rmce and rats. The results, the report said, "justify the hope that further study may reveal compounds capable of achieving permanent cure in man, not only of leukemia (blood cancer; but eventually of other forms of cancer now beyond control." The Institute said its record with TEM on rats is believed to be the first 100 per cent effective cancer cure on animals with chemicals. NASHVILLE, Tenn.

IKE (Continued from Page 1) congressional leaders are working to break the jam. 2. Gov. Frank G. Clement of Tennessee is welcome to come and see him about the Tennessee Valley Authority. Clement has described the President's remarks last week about TVA as deeply disturbing. The governor telegraphed the President suggesting a personal meeting. Eisenhower last week defended, as a worthy experiment, his order to the Atomic Energy Commission to contract for private electric Dower at West Memphis, Ark., near the TVA area. Some congressmen have protested that the AEC could ;et the power cheaper from TVA. 3. He-still expects the record of Congress—rather than such issues as communism in government— be ;he great issue before the voters in November.
