Union, Firm Plan Talks
On New Steel Contract
PITTSBURGH (A')-Union and company negotiatorsopen talks
today on a new contract for the nation's basic steelworkers in the
wake of a prediction by Secretary of Commerce Luther H. Hodges
that an early settlement will be reached.
Hodges, speaking at a news conference in Washington, said it
was "the general understanding that the steel contract will be settled
long before" the old contract expires June 30. He said both sides have

Labor unions called on their
members in Paris and throughout
the nation to strike during the
funeral services. The walkout was
widespread. In Paris, electricity,
gas, subway, bus, suburban train
and airport services were virtual-
ly paralyzed for four hours. Most
public schools were closed as
teachers struck.'
Meanwhile in Algeria, terrbrism
by Europeans and Moslems went
on without letup. Four Moslem
auxiliary soldiers and their French-
officer were found slain in an Al-
giers suburb. Three Moslems were
wounded in a machine gun attack
by Europeans.
Algerian Strike
A strike far different from those
in France struck Algiers. Shops
and offices closed throughout the
city in an. antigovernment strike'
ordered by the Secret Army.
The strike was in answer to the
arrest of a European cafe owner
and his nephew in the suburb of
Hussein Dey. The Secret Army
termed the arrests kidnapings.
Informed sources reported two
new raids by the European under-
ground to obtain weapons. One
was in Blida south of Algiers,,
when, a secret army commando
attacked a French Air Force patrol,
seizing its weapons.

attorney who was Secretary of theI
Army from 1955 to, 1961, says he1

speeches "of military officers.
Brucker cited Eisenhower's "vast
experience" in both military and
civilian capacities and supported,
his statement to the Senate sub-
committee that is investigating the
issue. r
Eisenhower took the position
that the Pentagon should review
the speeches of officers but that
only high-ranking civilians should
review for high-ranking officers.
Brucker also praised Senator
John Stennis (D-Miss), chairman
of the Prbparedness subcommittee.
"He is a level-headed person with
a lot of common sense."
Addressing himself to the wide-
spread fear that the hearings could
degenerate into McCarthyism, the
former army secretary said he was
sure Stennis can keep them under
"I'm confident that the hear-
ings will come out in a good way,"
Brucker added.
The hearings are scheduled to
resume today. They have been in
recess since President John F.
Kennedy invoked last Thursday
the doctrine of executive privilege
in forbidding any Defense or State
Departmerit employes to disclose
which of them censored any spe-
cific speech.'

West Plans
For March
U.S., Britain Prepare
Reply To Khrushchev
WASHINGTON (P) - America
and Britain, working yesterday on
a response to Soviet Premier Ni-
kita S. Khrushchev's call for an
18-nation summit conference on
disarmament next month,, wanted
to leave the way open for a sum-
mit conference later and yet not
impair the chances of successful
disarmament talks or the West's
standing in world opinion.
Britain's Prime Minister Harold
Macmillan followed Secretary of
State Dean Rusk's turndown of
the idea, telling the House of
Commons yesterday that an 18-
nation summit would be a great

Authorities said they expect to
send to Moscow before the end of
this week the West.ern reply to
Khrushchev's proposal that the.
general disarmament conference
scheduled to open in Geneva
March 14 start off with govern-
ment chiefs of state attending.
The United States and Britain
have proposed that .the Geneva
gathering get underway at the
foreign ministers level, while not
barring a summit parley later to
wrap up details should the nego-
tiators show progress. The Geneva
conference is scheduled to report
back to the United Nations by
June 1.
Welcomes Proposal
Macmillan declared he welcom-
ed "the broad spirit" of Khrush-
chev's conciliatory-worded pro-
posal. The Prime Minister said the
problem now is to find a way of
linking the United States-British
bid with "the most general ideas
which the chairman of the Soviet
Union has in mind."
In Moscow diplomatic inform-
ants expressed belief that Khrush-
chev may go to Geneva even if
President John F. Kennedy and
Macmillan stay home.
While there was no official con-
firmation of this, some diplomats
speculated that Khrushchev fig-
ures he can score a propaganda
victory by journeying to Geneva-
which. he would portray as evi-
dence of the Communists' sincere
desire and effort to achieve dis-
armament despite balking by
Western chiefs.

If they do, prices of thousands

something the Kennedy adminis-
tration wants to prevent.

Harriman, assistant secretary of
state for Far Eastern affairs, tes-
tified yesterday it is necessary to
prevent a Communist takeover in
South Viet Nam.
He said he understands the
United States is doing enough to
help the South Vietnamese resist
Communist conquest without com-
mitting United States combat
troops, for which he said there is
no present plan.
"We should see it through," he
Harriman voiced his views at a'
public hearing before the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee. This
group then met behind closed
doors and announced it had voted
unanimously to recommend his
confirmation by the Senate as-
sistant secretary.
Sen. Stuart. Symington (D-Mo),
a committee member, asked Har-
riman at the hearing "do you feel
it is necessary for us to hold South
Viet Nam?"
"I do," Harriman replied.
Then, asked by Symington
whether it is necessary "for us to
do all we can to hold South Viet
Nam," the assistant secretary said
he preferred to rephrase the ques-
tion in answering it.

In developing this display, IBM engineers and scientists solved
