Aly Sees Rita, No Decision On Reconciliation Hollywood --(/P) - Prince Aly Khan hurried to a five-hour visit with his estranged wife Rita Hayworth soon after he arrived here last night, but when the meeting broke up early today their»recon- ciliation question remained unanswered. j Appearing glum as he left the i red haired actress' home, the j prince said only.

Licq-Athcry, France - (/Pj i Rescue workers today began the I sad task of hauling the broken body of a young French underground explorer from the 1,000- foot deep Pyrenees mountain cave in which b,e fell to his death. The victim, Marcel Loubens, 33, died last night as a death-defying rescue team was about to try hoisting him by cable from a ledge where he had lain in a coma nearly 36 hours. Dr. Andrew Mairey, a fellow explorer of the earth's depths, had been lowered into the fissure -one of the world's deepest -- to try to bring the unconscious man to the surface. Working desperately on the nar- row shelf in the dark, wet hole, I Mairey managed to strap Loubens to a stretcher. But the explorer died shortly afterwards from his injuries and the bitter cold. Loubens had hurtled 120 feet to the ledge in the Pierre St. Martin fissure when a steel cable haulins him lo the surface snapped Wednesday morning. He was badly battered and his spine was fractured. Dr, Mairey, himself a survivor of a cave battle with death, went down a fifth of a mile below the earth's surface with the stretcher strapped on his back lo make the vain rescue attempt. It" took 21s hours to lower him by cable and winch. Then, just before midnight, the daring doctor told anxious watchers on the surface by telephone thiit the young explorer had died, Loubens. a Paris industrialist, shared with Mairey and others an . amateur enthusiasm for speleology | (cave exploration). On their c u r - j rent expedition, members of t h e ! party had penetrated a record 1,656 feet into the earth's crust. Dr. Msircy, 38, was the only survivor of seven explorers trapped in a nearby rave two years ago. Their escape route cut off by a flood of water, six drowned as they struggled to find a way out of the cavern, but Mairey held his head above thp icy water for 24 j hours unlil it cbberk a reconciliation was possible. Aly arrived by plane last night and a few hours later, shortly before midnight, went to visit Hita in her Beverly Hills home. Murray addressed a "xct-be- hind-Stevenson" rally of some 400 j leaders of the CIO and its polili- cal Action Committee. The CIO Executive Board endorsed Democratic Nominee Adlai Stevenson yesterday.

Dislikes Philosophy Smiling broadly, Murray Commented: "Now there's a philosophy to be introduced into the American political scene." In a statement at Denver on August 9, Eisenhower called for expansion of the social security program to cover an additional 14 million persons, and Tor increased old age assistance grants. Murray marie a general attack, too, on the Republicn party. He said it has "stood against any legislation to control' inflation," Along with endorsing Stevenson yesterday, the CIO Executive Board slapped at the Republican platform as "empty of constructive ideas. 11 Truman Predicts Victory I President Truman told the CIO leaders the American voters will elect Adlai Stevenson president and make the Republicans like it.
