Friday, January 11, 1957 THI DAILY INDEPENDENT, MONESSEN, PA. ·P«gt Thrt* Acheson Substitute for Ike Doctrine Supported House Democrat Drafting New Plan for Action WASHINGTON (UP-- A ranking House Democrat today was drafting a sharply toned-down substitute for the Eisenhower Doctrine which would embody the ideas of former Secretary of State Dean Acheson on stabilizing the Middle East. Rep. Clement J. Zablocki (D- Wis), author of the substitute, said Acheson had. "really pointed the way" for handling the "power vacuum" in the Middle East that the administration fears Eussia will try to fill. Zablocki is a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee which heard Acheson Thursday condemn the Eisenhower proposal as "fa/ too hazardous." The President has asked Congress to grant him standby authority to use U.S. troops, if necessary, to block any Russian aggression · in the Middle East. He also wants approval of a S400 million program of economic and military aid to strengthen the Middle East. Asks Congressional Approval In his State of the Union Message to Congress Thursday, Mr. Eisenhower said congressional approval of his plan is a matter of "vital and immediate importance." Indications have been that Con*, gress would give the President; substantially what he wants. !

The main clash took place out side the sprawling iron and stee mills on suburban Csepel Island in the Danube River south of the city. Less serious incidents oc cur red near other major fac tories. Police fired with submachine guns and carbines on^ the demon strators, but the shots were direct ed over the heads of the crowds It was not reported immediatelj if there were any serious casual ties. The demonstrators said they were clamoring for better wages They carried placards denouncing government concessions as iaade quate. But observers said the main reasons for the new outburst o violence were: 1. The unrelenting tone of Pre mier Janos Kadar's policy state ment last Sunday which said flat- 3y the government was returning to rigorous Communist dictator ship. ?. Government attempts to infiltrate the factory workers' councils with Kadar party Communists. 3. The mass layoffs In factories all over Hungary which Kadar ordered for the new year. There were no reports of intervention by Russian tanks in this morning's demonstrations. The demonstrations were the first outburst of violence between workers and police since before Christmas.

Nationally Advertised WASHINGTON (UP) -- Top American officials today were reported optimistic that negotiations will begin soon on a permanent settlement of the Suez Canal controversy. The Suez problem was the number one issue to be discussed at talks this afternoon between Secretary of S J . te John Poster Dulles and visiting French Foreign Minister Christian Pineau. Pineau was due to arrive in Washington by train from New York this afternoon. In advance of the talks, diplomats predicted an arrangement would be worked out soon under which U. N. Secretary Genera) Dag Hamniarskjold would act as an "umpire" in .iew negotiations on the Suez between Egypt, Brit-, ain and France. Egypt, it was understood, is willing to negotiate "through" Hammarskjold in order te avoid sitting down with the British and French in direct talks. Timing of the "umpire talks" may be linked with Israel's withdrawal of the troops she sent into the Sinai Peninsula and the Gaza Strip in her attack on Egypt. The United States, in both Washington ir.cT Tel Aviv, has been urging Israel to speed up its piiUback. Failure to withdraw to pre-invasion armistice lines, American officials believe, would both spur new U,N. action against Israel and delay settlement of the Suez Canal controversy. Egypt has held back on negotiations, in part, on the ground that-Israel had failed to comply with U N. demands to withdraw its attacking forces.
