HAAKINSON WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Gillette (D-Iowa) said today he will ask the Senate to curb broad investigative powers in the field of international relations now held by the Polish Reds committee headed by Sen. McCarthy (rVWis). -* "This Is a glaring situation." Gillette said in an interview "It is something that was never intended and I will ask the Senate to pass on it at the coming session."

Situation Delicate 'International relationships are delicate now and will be for an unforeseen time," Gillette said. On Youths Hundreds Arrested As Rowdies P> By RICHARD O'REGAN VIENNA, Austria (AP) — Hundreds of teen-agers have been arrested in Poland in recent weeks in a drive to put down acts of hooliganism by roving gangs of young rowdies threatening Communist order. Polish newspapers reaching here report almost daily raids by police in cities like Warsaw, Krakow and Lublin and In smaller towns. Young rowdies are rounded up and sent to labor camps. Western diplomats in Vienna see the rowdyism as an expression of restlessness of Polish youth with Communist restrictions and only Indirectly as a form of anticom- munism. The newspapers say that Communist youth organizations have been Infected by rowdyism. On recent excursion "the first cul tural and .educational demand o the (Communist) youth leaders la," one newspaper comments, was an energetic demand for vod The juvenile gangs appear siml lar to those warring with authorities in some U.S. cities. Newspapers make these plaints: Attack in Gangs Gangs of young thugs attack "respectable people", on the streets of Warsaw and other cities In broad daylight. They enter state run stores and beat up the. managers and assistants, apparently Just for the fun of it. They assault police, turn Communist-organized dances into brawls and have such defiance of the Red regime that they break up Communist meetings. The hooliganism, says the Warsaw newspaper Zycie Warszawy, has even reached the point that high school kids beat up their teachers. It adds: The range of hooliganism "consists of public rows, foul language, window breaking, destruction of public property, like the spoiling of park benches, attack and Sights which often end with bodily injuries and even death of the person •ttacked."

"The Senate has given its Foreign Relations Committee authority in this field. "We all know that careless actions or statements in this field can jeopardize our international status." Gillette's proposal followed by a day a remark by another Democrat, Sen. McCarran of Nevada, that the investigations subcommittee in its investigations of Dommunism "has stepped over into a field where it was not Intended o function at all." However, McCarran in an interview said nothing about attempting 0 curb McCarthy's activities. He aid on the contrary he thought he investigations subcommittee las "done good work," and em- ihasized there was nothing person- 1 In his remarks. He and McCarthy often have Exchanged compliments. The Nevadan said, however, he thought the Senate Internal Security subcommittee, of which.he Is senior Democratic member, "can do all the work necessary on the Senate side" in investigating subversive activities. Primary Purpose McCarthy, in Miami, said yesterday that "digging out communism" is not the "primary purpose" of his subcommittee and that it has been careful to check with the Internal Security subcommittee o avoid duplication. He continued: "If in our investigations we find subversive elements in government which would prevent the government from operating properly, and noother congressional group Is in- MISS 1954 — Pamela Yvone Hamilton, first baby born in a Blytheville hospital in 1954, was delivered at 3:55 p.m. yesterday to Mr. and Mrs. Elmo Hamilton of Blytheville, Route 2, at Walls Hospital.

A highly qualified French military source said the Vietminh's "Iron Division"—No. 316 — had been reinforced. A division usually contains 12,000 men. The strength of the defending force cannot be given for security reasons. Seldom, however, has the Vietminh ever attacked such a strong French Union position without outnumbering the defenders anywhere from six- to 10 times. The Vietminh, when they have attacked in the eight-year Idochinese war, almost invariably has done so with a force of vast numerical superiority, hoping thereby to overwhelm and overrun the French positions. No matter how big the attacking force may be at Dien Bien Phu, French commanders were confident that they could give the Vietminh a severe beating. Hundreds of American-supplied Dakota transport planes, since the plain was captured on Nov. 20, lave poured American-made guns and ammunition and French-Vietnamese troop reinforcements into Dien Bien Phu. Dien Bien Phu Is the last big French stronghold in the pro- French Thai people's country. When the Vietminh assault comes it may develop on all sides of the plain.

City Firemen Have Busy Day Here Blythevliie's Fire Department had a busy day yesterday in keeping fires under control, including a grocery store, a Negro hotel and two grass fires, according to Fire Chief Roy Head. Chief Head praised the firemen in their work in putting out a fire in Cage Hotel on south Fifth street before it could do heavy damage. Starting in a room in the center of the 24-room building, the fire gutted one room but was stopped as it spread into the attic. There was some smoke and water damage to the building but the first burning fire was put out by the firemen who worked their way into the heavy smoke to get to the source of the blaze, Chief Head said. A fire In the store room of Eddison Grocery on South First street was confined to that room, the fire chief said, and only heat caused iome damage , No damage was caused in the apartment on the side of the store building. Two grass fires were reported, at 212 East Sawyers and at 541 South Parkway. No. property damage was •eported. Communist Chinese POWs their :hance to return to the Reds. The formal U. N. statement said: "If this checking of the prisoner )f war rosters affords some pris- mers an opportunity to request epatriation. this Is in conformity wih United) Natins Command lollcy that every effort should be nade to ensure that every prisoner n the custody of the Indian cus- odian force should have every ipportunity to make a free choice is to where he wishes to go." The statement diametrically op- 3osed the stand of South Korean Foreign Minister Pyun Yung Tai, who protested the head count on ehalf of his government. Asked no Questions An Indian spokesman said the lei protest came late Thursday, mmedlately after the check that eturned 135 Chinese prisoners to he Communists out of 4,385 pris- ners questioned.

An Indian spokesman declined to say so specifically, but announced afterward that a "memorandum The President scheduled another early morning session in his office at the Augusta National Golf Club. This session was set for 8 a.m., EST. He started the new year yesterday with a four and a half hour morning conference on the State of the Union message which he will deliver to Congress in person next Thursday. Then Eisenhower went off for a round of golf while his aides worked on into evening on the document. James C. Hagerty, presidential press secretary, reported after the morning meeting that "quite a lot of progress" was made toward whipping the message into final form. Work also continued on the annual budget and economic reports to Congress. The conferences here are being attended by Budget Director Joseph M. Dodge; Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, chief U.S. delegate to the United Nations; Dr. Arthur S. Flemming, head of the Office of Defense Mobilization; Sherman Adams, Eisenhower's top assistant, and other White House aides. Eisenhower already has completed a report he will make to the nation Monday night on his administration's first year in office. The speech will be carried on television and radio. The President plans to fly back to Washington tomorrow, ending a visit which began Christmas Day. Eisenhower yesterday reappointed Harmar D. Denny to a six-year term, as a member of the Civil Aeronautics Board, The Pittsburgh Republican first was appointed to the CAB last April for the balance of a term which expired this week. His appointment is subject to Senate confirmation. The President also named three members of a board set up Dec. 16 to investigate a wage dispute between the Railway Express Agency and the Brotherhood of Railway Clerks. Appointed to the emergency board were Judge Fred W. Messmore of the Nebraska Supreme Court; William B. Brady, New York lawyer, and Allen Dash Jr., of Philadelphia, a labor arbitrator. Calls for Probe Of Compound will be "sent to both sides." Pyun bitterly criticized the head count as a violation of armistice terms providing a 90-day period for explanations to prisoners who refused to go home. This period ended Deo. 23. The ROK foreign minister hinted that steps might be taken to liberate about 8,000 anti-Communist Koreans in Indian custody if the riead count continued. The Communist protest against ;he head count apparently was oased on the fear that such action by the Indians might compromise demands for extended explanations. U.S. Fears Further Stall in Big Four Talks By JOHN M. H1GHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) — U. S. officials expressed hope today that the Berlin foreign ministers meeting actually will open Jan. 25, but they said the Russians still can stall the conference if they wish. Strong 'suspicions about Rus•la's tactics persist because one of Moscow's main purposes In the project Is believed to b* to delay French action on the proposed European Defense Community and so to delay Western plans for controlled rearmament of West Germany. • • • Rumli can forward thl: aim by keeping alive hope of mie- ccssful Enst-Wf.t : ojrotlnions «lther by promising conferences Ita brighter the prospects of international peace by negotiation, the less pressure, presumably. Frenchmen would feel to accept EDC and thereby abandon .their deep rooted opposition to any revival of German military strength. Notes which the Western Powers handed the Soviet Foreign Office yesterday accepted Jan. 25 as the opening date lor, the ' Berlin meeting agreed also to a Russian proposal that th* place of the meeting be determined by Big Four officials In Germany and said that there Is no point now In any further talk about an agenda for^the conference since the ministers themselves will be meetings soon. • * • Several possibilities of further delay are conceded: 1. TIM frMOto fovtmmrat fe to be re ^anteed in mid-January after the new president takes office. 2. A site must be selected for the conference. The Western Powers proposed the Allied Control Authority Building, which the Russians do not like. There Is some speculation that the Soviets may alternatively propose a former broadcasting headquarters which they control in West Berlin. That almost certainly would meet with ready Western acceptance. But there also has been speculation that the Reds would propose alternating the sessions between East and West Berlin' or among the four occupation sectors of the city. Despite difficulties such as the problem of uninhibited news reporting by Western correspendents, authorl- "^ My 8llch arrangements to work** out. If the Russians shouM unexpectedly insist that the meetings b e held in East Berlin, tht Western Powers, according (9 Washington officials, would reject the proposal flatly. 3. Another possible cause of delay Is the matter of subjects to be discussed. In previous note exchanges both the Western Powers and the Soviet government have in elefct agreed that the future of Germany Is a major topic of Importance. Russia has served •notice it will bring up Its demand for recognition of Red China as n fifth big world power and the Western governments have said that Russia can talk about anything It wants to. The West has repeatedly culled for completion of an Austrian Independence treaty and Russia has refused to agrei to talk about tbii M Berlin. Nehru Regime Undecided on PW Deadline NEW DELHI, India .W) —Prime Minister Nehru's overnment has not yet decided what position India will ;ake Jan. 22 when the deadline for :he retention of unrepatriated prisoners under the Korean armistice agreement is reached. Official sources report top Indian officials are giving fully as much attention to that problem as to the ifitlonwlde clamor against the proposed American military assistance to Pakistan. But they have not reached an agreement on how India will vote n the Neutral Nations Repatriation Commission when the time comes for a final ruling. The possibility of shifting the decision to the United Nations through an emergency, meeting of the General Assembly, which India's Mrs. Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit as Assembly president could summon, grows less with each passing day. In fact, most observers here believed If Nehru wanted the Assembly to decide the problem he would have asked Mrs. Pandit, his sister, to make the emergency call before the new year began. Nation's Death Toll Less Than Expected By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The nation's traffic death toll over the New Year's weekend holiday was running today behind the Christmas total by at least 100. There were 136 persons killed in highway accidents since the cur- vey started at. 6 p.m. Thursday (local time). In the corresponding period for the Christmas holiday the toll was 237. The violent deaths since New Year's Eve was 180. They included 24 persons who perished in fires and 20 others who lost their lives in miscellaneous accidents. The 180 compared to 285 in the same period during the Christmas holiday. The final Christmas traffic death total was 523. The Christmas total Is included among the National Safety Council's estimated 38,000 persons killed in traffic accidents in 1853, the Same as in 1952. It was the first year since 1!)4D that the toll did not increase. The council said 1953 had the lowest mileage death rate in the history of traffic accident records. It was estimated at 6.9—the number of deaths per 100 million miles. The council had estimated 360 persons would be killed in motor weekend ending midnight Sunday, mishaps during the New Year's However, Ned H. Dearborn, council president, said if the present rate was maintained for the rest of the holiday period the toll would be under 300, the lowest New Year's traffic death toll since 1949.

Only two deaths have been reported since 6 p.m., Thursday one by traffic and one by suffocation. Arkansas State Police headquarters said today they had reports of any traffic deaths yesterday. Dwight L. Rainey, a 74-year-old Little Rock veteran of the Spanish-American War, suffocated yesterday in a smoldering fire in a warehouse below his second-floor room. He was dead when firemen removed him from the building. Rainey was the first reported death in Arkansas for 1954, The traffic victim was Ed Whitaker, about 50, of Des Arc. He was killed Thursday night in a col- "islon on Highway 70 near Haezn. The state's violent death toll for the week is 17. The body of Barney Brewington, i5-year-old Tyronza farmer, wa 'ound floating In the St. Pranci, River at Marked Tree yesterday.

Cpl. Claude J. Batchelor, who changed his mind and asked yesterday to go home, called for an investigation of conditions Inside the pro-Communist neutral zone compound and said Indian guards should search it for hidden weapons. Batchelor, of Kermit, Tex., Is the second of the 23 Americans to ask repatriation. His story of life in the wire-enclosed compound near Panmun- jom, told during a 40-minute press conference here, conflicted at many points with reports of the Indian command on conditions in the stockade now holding 21 Amer. leans, 1 Briton and 327 South Ko- ;ans. The 22-year-old corporal calmly faced a battery, of newsmen, cameras and microphones as he made these points: . 1. Both South Korean and American pro-Red prisoners in the camp are armed with daggers to intimidate any prisoner who wishes to escape. "It would be difficult at times for the Americans to get out." "Some Contact" 2. Chinese Communist leaders have "some contact" with prisoners in the neutral zone compound, despite Indian reports to the contrary. 3. "A lot of fellows there : are quite, mixed up and. thers .might be others who would come out" If they had a chance. 4. All outgoing letters from the camp are written Jointly and read to the other prisoners. 5. The prisoners are split Into factions and the leaders of various groups sometimes fall to pass on information given them by Indian officials. Indian spokesmen have said -repeatedly there are no weapons In the compound and that it would be a simple matter for any prisoner wishing repatriation to contact » guard. Batchelor's calm and poise contrasted with the extreme nervousness of Cpl. Edward S. DIckenson of Big stone Gap, Va., who was repatriated from the north camp Oct. 22. Balchelor repeated his statement Friday that tender love letters from his Japanese wife, Kyoko, played a major role In his decision to return home. He said a growing suspicion of Communist motives finally persuaded him about month ago to return. Flics to Tokyo Sunday morning the young corporal will fly to Tokyo for a final medical checkup and a meeting with his wife. The tiny Japanese woman wrote her husband Saturday that his decision to return home "was like dream — a Christmas dream come true after three years." Batchelor refused to answer many questions concerning conditions inside the camp. He said he did not want to incriminate any of the men remaining, but it appeared that he might have been following the advice of U.S. Army officers who have talked with him for hours since his return to the U.N. Command Friday. Batchelor explained how he radually picked up Communist "There were all kinds of study groups and bull sessions," he said. "They gave us all kinds of literature on Marxism, Communist ideology, the class struggle, political economy and American aggression, Some of the books wera Sec POWs on Page 8 Weather ARKANSAS — Partly cloudy to cloudy this afternoon »nd tonight, little wn rmer this afternoon.
