KORRY PARIS, (UP) Premier Pierre Mendes-France sought today to convince his dismayed Allies that France had not abandoned the Western alliance in killing the European Defense Community (EDO. The 47-year-old premier was reported by political sources to he planning a flying visit to Britair to consult Prime Minister Winston Churchill on ways to patch up the Western European defense plans Mendes-France also was reportec to be preparing an "important 1 statement to the assembly, possibly on an alternaivc plan for join European defense. Mendes-Francu drove to his coun try hideout at Marly late last nigh after a bitterly divided national as sembly voted 319 to 264 to end dc bate on EDC as a subject unworthy of further notice. "It is in the Atlantic framework that new solutions should be su died," Mendes-France said in a de deration issued from his hkdout "And this time we will not waste three years." Three years ago France propos jd the EDC setup and signed reaty in 1952 but delayed taking action later for two reasons: 1. EDC would rearm 500.000 West Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium nnd Luxembourg. Mendes-i' ranee tried despeiately at Brussois two ,veeks ago to confine the Germans ;o their own soil. 2. EDC would have set up a federated states of Europe and France feared she* would lose her sovereignty if she joined a union of that nature.

Any editorial is worth reprinting When it makes a common-sense Contribution to the solving of the general problems of the society in which men live. Here is air important discussion of Crime, the Courts, and the Press ''<tt-... Kentucky newspaper is rcpuu- ing editorially on the recent speech of a well-known Chicago editor: Quote THE EDITOR'S SIDE OF CRIME NEWS CONTROVERSY (Owensboro, Ky., Messenger) The zeal of old-lime crusading editors like Kentucky's own "Marsc Henry" Watterson was reflected in a statement made just a few Jays agb by A. T. Burch, associate HslHor of the Chicago Daily News. Burch told a conference of state chief justices that newspapers "mean to keep on hollering' about crime. He explained: "It is the newspaper's duty to print the facts, not to try them. That is the duty of the courts. "We want them to do it thoroughly and fairly. Wu do not want to threaten them or co- jAerce them or influence them im™ properly. "But we don't want n pack of thieving politicians, whose help ; . may be far more useful than our to a judge nt election time, to coerce them, either." Burch forthrightly cintinuod that he felt publication of nows affecting a pending trial "almost never equals the virulence of word-of- mouth gossip, tincorreclod by any lirinted report." He noted tha't ^j-nchings have taken place in some newspaperless towns, and said an unprejudiced jury is seldom found in a community uninformed of current news. The Chicago editor also answered the arguments of those favoring keeping a tight lid on news of criminal cases. He said they usually cite the case of Great Britain, which has a low crime rate and which has stringent laws to prevent publication of news about evidence in Criminal..cases. "In rebuttal he spoke of the hanging last year of John Christie for the murder of six ..women. Said Burch, "The trouble is that ihe British had already hanged another man for killing two of these w,om- en." He concluded, "In the United States, many an innocent man owes. his liberty or even his life to the enterprise of investigating reporters." A We think Burch has well present^?d the editors' side of this controversy, although of course any dispute has its two sides, and the leyal profession certainly has its points on this issue. The Chicago news executive has one particularly good argument when he mentions the damage that is often done by wild rumors. It is always better to give the public the truth insofar as it can be ascertained than it is to expose the. people •jto rumor, half-truth, and even possible slander. Legion Urges Opposition to All Aggression .*•' • • WASHINGTON W! The American Legion gave overwhelming backing today to a proposal calling on the United States to meet any further Communist aggresion in Southeast Asia by "immediate military retaliation."

'*' In orther major actions the Legion voted: 1. To oppose ar.y move to bar the use of atomic weapons or to come to any agrement with tho Russians on atomic matters at this time. 2.

Hamilton Moses, chairman of the board of directors of Arkansas Power & Light. Co., that u largo investor sold 100,000 shares of APiL stock because tho utility was not earning a six per cent. return. McLean, president of the Commercial National Bank in Little Rock, opened the gate-two months ago to a flood of criticism against AP&L when he made public a letter slating AP&L did not need a rale increase to earn a six per cent return on its investment. Ho said AP&L at present is earning more than JO per. cent return on its equity capital, although AP&L figures show only a 5.4 per cent return. The question of the $3,000,000 rate increase request was debated before the Little Rock City Council thrdee weeks ago. McLean quoted Moses as saying then that a Massachusetts Investors Trust sold 100,000 shares of stock in the Mid-South Utilities Co. which holds all trie rcommbn stock of AP&L, because the AP&L stock was not earning a six per cent return.

A four inch natural gas pipeline built by the own of Murfreesboro and leased to Arkansas. Louisiana Co., was turned over to Nashville to carry water from the nearby Little Missouri River. When the offer came, Nashville had only enough water for the next 15 days. Even now, all drinking water is being hauled into the city from other, areas. Nashville Mayor Henry Dildy immediately accepted the propo sal of Murfreesboro and Arkansas Louisiana Gas, and sent out an emergency call for a pump cap able of bringing about 160,000 fial Ions of water daily into the city. Previously, city, officials'had no pealed to state and federal au thorities to supply nine miles of pipeline to bring water to the city from the little Missouri. The pipeline was financed by a bond issue approved by Murfrees boro voters. It is designed to con nect with an Arkansas-Louis iana gas line near here, and cross es the Little Missouri on a bridge on temporary U. S. Highway 70. Arkansas-Louisiana had planned to •begin moving gas to Murfreesboro through the line.immediately. But, when Murfresboro' Mayor John Beavers suggested that the line be turned over to Nashville to carry water, the company promptly approved. ' If the proper pump, cnn be found Mayor Dildy said Nashville can pull in 24 hours' supply of water in three days. Dildy said city of ficials hope to store up an addi tional five-day supply before the hie is turned, back . to Murfreesboro. That will give them enough water for 20 days under strict ra tloning, ' ' In the meantime, they're pray ing for rain.

By JOHN M, HIOHTOWER .•WASHINGTON. W United States officials tend to favor an cmer« gency meeting of the North Atlantic Allies' foreign ministers at New York late this month to seek agreement on West Germany's role in the defense of Western Europe. • Tho most worltnblo solution now available, in the opinion of two officials here, is for the 14 members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to rnnko Germany a member with some safeguards to prevent a revival of Gorman militarism along with German rearmament. Capitals of the Western nations have thrown out a series of suggestions for dealing with the German problem since the French Assembly buried the European Do fensc Community project under a widespread diplomatic ' upheaval several points are coming clear: 1. The U. S. and British govern ments both hope for German membership in NATO, which requires unanimous approval of the 14 members. Press, reports said the Churchill Cabinet so decided at London yesterday, and Secretary of State Dulles hnd -indicated a U. S. position to that effect in calling Tuesday for an emergency NATO session to deal with the problem. 2. French Premier Mendes- France would like some kind of solution which would amount to an EDC substitute or •'•Little NATO" arrangement, or possibly second- class . status for West Germany in the full NATO organization. American and British officials f el, however, that in letting EDC die, Mendes-France • lost his last opportunity t,o impose any such longtime restraint upon Germany's future position and behavior. ' 3. French rejection , of EDC produced a derriand from the West German ; goye,rnmGn,t,; fpxa independent fi^m^lh's':!^^,,.^^ cupation and a hew' Western fense arrangement -'without discrimination 'against G er man trops" In its cmmuniquc yes terday bidding for equal status with the Allies, Chancellor' Konrad Adenauer's Cabinet pointedly excluded France from ths nations it said-should negotiate'the new military alliance. •.. . ' 4. Washington hau acted with de liberate slowness in some respects to encourage the European nations, particularly France^ to como up with new ideas.for-dealing with the aftermath of EDC's defeat, They are hoping that some line of action will develop clearly in Europe within the next two weeks.
