Chiefs Would Meet
By End of October
East-West Summit Might Follow
Western Four-Power Conference
BONN, Germany M) - President Dwight D. Eisenhower was re-
ported yesterday to have proposed a Western summit conference ki
Europe sometime around the end of this month.
Authoritative informants said Eisenhower told the government
chiefs of Britain, Frapce and West Germany he was ready to meet
with them to work out plans for a forthcoming top-level conference
with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev.
The wordfrom Eisenhower was said to be contained in letters to
Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, PresidentCharles de Gaulle and

Judge Says
Law Can Jail
Personnel Director
Jail sentences may be .metered
out to University students who
"borrow" bicycles illegally or vio-
late the state law regarding sale
of liquor to minors, Municipal
Judge Francis L. O'Brien pointed
out last week.
A city ordinance passed in Aug-
ust, 1959, makes taking bicycles
wilfully "without permission but
without intent to steal" a misde-
meanor subject to disorderly con-
duct charge.
"Fines can be levied, but it is
also possible to hand out jail
sentences, depending upon the fac-
tors in the case," O'Brien com-
mented. Three people have already
received two-day jail terms, he
A city ordinance points out that
a misdemeanor carries a $500 fine,
a 90-day jail term or both. Modli-
cations of the two are usually in-
voked, O'Brien added..
'Not Valid'
tUsing the defense of intending
to borrow temporarily but not
steal will not be valid any more,
he added. The police simply must
show that a bicycle was taken
intentionally and without author-
ity of the owner,
A state law allows for convic-
tion in cases where intent to' steal
has been proven. The serious prob-
lem of thefts led to the passage
of the present ordinance, O'Brien
Since January 1 of this year, the
police have 504 reports of stolen
Be Aware
Urider this new ordinance, stu-
dents should be congnizant of two
rules, O'Brien commented. First
that "if a bicycle doesn't belong
to you, don't take it without au-
thority" and second, "if there are'
abandoned bikes around your resi-
dence, call the police and they
will pick them up."
Violating the state law regarding
sale of liquor to minors can also
bring jail sentences under a new
municipal court policy, O'Brien
pointed out.
The state law allows for a 90-
day jail sentence or a $100 fine
or both for disregarding this law.
Judicial discretion can be em-
ployed to determine how much of
each penalty is decreed, O'Brien
Evaluate Policy
While the law covers all indi-
viduals over 21 in the state, the
former policy had been toN fine
students and be more severe with
adults. Recent difficulties in the
county involving buying liquor for
teenagers has led to an evaluation
of this policy.
"As the law makes no distinc-
tions, it would be hard for me to
draw a line between adult and
student violators," O'Brien noted.
Fach case will continue to be
,fudged on its merits with the pos-
h sibility of jail sentences added."
Petition Taken
For Council

oChancellor Konrad Adenauer. The
West German government and the
United States embassy here con-
firmed that Adenauer had re-
ceived a leter from Eisenhower
yesterday, but declined to disclose
its contents.

It was learned, however, that
the President agreed with Aden-
auer's proposal that the Western
government chiefs confer among.

East-West meeting, with Khrush-
The informants said that if all'
goes well an East-West summit
meeting can, be scheduled for Ge-
neva Dec. 7.
This would be a week before the
start of the annual Paris meeting'

ganization's foreign ministers,
who presumably would be able to'
discuss the results of the summit
It was not known whether Eis-
enhower specifically proposed the
Western conference be held ina
Paris but officials here tended to
believe that was the likely site.

journalists, this was the No. 1s

Threa ten
WASHINGTON A')--The United
States yesterday accused Russia
of seizing the security chief of the.
United States Embassy in Moscow
and trying to force him by threats
and bribery into becoming a spy
for the Soviets.{
In a sensational new twist to
Washington-Moscow relations, the
State Department reported that
threats of physical violence, offers
of bribes and a trumped up charge
of espionage were used without
avail against the security officer,
Russell A. Langelle.
"They also threatened to take
unspecified action against his wife
and three small children who re-
side with him in Moscow," the De-
partment said.
Accuse Langelle
When the United States Charge
D'Affairs, Edward L. Freers, pro-
tested to the Soviet Foreign Min-
istry, Langelle was accused of es-
pionagev against the Soviet Union
and ordered out of the country.
The United States rejected this
charge, but under diplomatic cus-
tom it has no recourse other than
to bring him home. Langelle and
his family will leave as soon as
As detailedby the State Depart-
ment, the sensational incident,
probably without exact precedent
in United States-Soviet relations,
occurred only Friday.
U.S. Baffled
United States officials were baf-
fled by the affair and puzzled as'
to what effect it will have on "The
Spirit of Camp David" which So-
viet -Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev
has been promoting since his con-
ference with President Dwight D.j
Eisenhower last month.
S. R; Striganov, Deputy Chief
of American Affairs, in the Soviet
Foreign Ministry, told Freers
"competent" Soviet authorities had}
reported that Langell had been
doing intelligence work.3

Northwestern Rolls;
Dashes pset Hope
NUJ Halfbacks Purdin, Johnston
Score 85-Yard Run, 63-Yard Pass
Dily Sports Editor
Northwestern's ironman halfback duo of Ray Purdin and
Mark Johnston proved to be too much for the upset h6pes of
Bump Elliott's multitudes here yesterday as the Wildcats
downed Michigan, 20-7.
Johnston converted a desperation pass into a 63-yd.,
touchdown play in the waning moments of the first half and
Purdin added an 85-yd. Insurance run. in the last period.
These backbreakers were just
part of the all-around per-
formance turned in by 60-
minute man Johnston and Y
58-er Purdin. -

SWEEPS AROUND--Stan Noskin racing around end is stopped by Northwestern in his attempt to
gain yardage. Northwestern's ability to peel off long runs and passes offset the shorter gains made
by Michigan as the Wildcats downed the Wolverines. Though beaten, 20 to 7, Michigan's defeat was -
not as bad as last year's when Northwestern romped 55 to 24.

Cease-Fire Nearer in Algeria

PARIS (AP)-President Charles
de Gaulle and Algerian Rebel
Leader Ferhat Abbas have clearly
moved closer on the issue of end-
ing the Algerian insurrection.
Important differences still re-
main. But some diplomatic quar-
ters feel these can be settled. This
has given rise to reports that,
negotiations --official or unofficial
-are now in progress.
Despite de Gaulle's dramatic
offer of self-determination for the
vast North African territory, the
rebels still insist on formally nego-
tiating the political conditions of
a cease-fire.
France Opposes
France opposes this, saying it
will talk politics only with elected
representatives once peace is re-
stored in Algeria.

Speculation on negotiations has
been heightened by the hurried
trips of French and Arab diplo-
mats on the Paris-Tunis-Rabat
Abbas, premier of the rebel re-
gime, has been in close touch with
President Habib Bourguiba of
Tunisia and King Mohammed V
of Morocco-both moderates who
have close contacts with Paris.
France's Western allies have also
been discreetly passing on any-
thing that comes their way from
the Algerian side.
Secrecy Dictated
Secrecy is dictated by several
factors. De Gaulle faces delicate
problems involving French public
opinion, a restive army and the
volatile European settlers of Al-

geria, who want Algeria joined
firmly to France.
A French senator narrowly es-
caped assassination in Paris this
week. A member of the Chamber
of Deputies charged that French
extremists in Algeria had sent
killers from Spain to wipe out ad-
vocates -of a moderate policy- in
Abbas, on the other hand, must,
maintain unity with rebel guer-
rillas and some members of his
provisional cabinet who want to
fight to the end for independence.
The possibility of a new United
Nations Assembly debate on Al-
geria is maintaining pressure on
both the French and rebels to
come to terms.
Both Abbas and de Gaulle are
concerned about the United Na-
tions. De Gaulle wants to keep
any debate off the floor, main-
taining Algeria is an internal
French problem. He is striving to
convince everyone that he is try-
ing to end the war on a just basis.
Abbas is equally concerned that
the rebel position appear moder-
ate. Reliable observers think the
rebels are still holding firm posi-
tions beneath an officially moder-
ate exterior.
Abbas made communications

"At that time," said Crisler,
"nothing had been crystalized cbn-
cerning the setup of the League.
A written constitution hadn't even
been drawn up with attorneys.
But a lot of work has been done
since then and I'm studying the
written bylaws now."
Crisler admitted that 'he was
very much impressed with the peo-
ple backing the second professional
conference scheduled to begin
operations in 1960.
Cities Named
Six teams have secured fran-
chises. so far, including Dallas,
Minneapolis, Los.Angeles, Denver,
New York and Houston.
Crisler flew to Beverly Hills,
Calif., last Monday and spent two
days in conference with league
officials. At the end of the nego-
tiations he branded reports that
he had signed -a $50,000 contract
as "all lies."
Hunt said Friday night in Dallas
that the candidates had been nar-
rowed to two men. But he declined
to say if Crisler was one 'of them.

his debut.
Thre and a half year old Greg
Olson, who insists on being called
"Dean" after his father, screamed;
shouted and waved his arms like
an "old pro." One elder cheer-
leader, speaking confidentially,
called him "our best cheerleader."

continued. "He's part of the pagan

A well-rounded seller who was
coating a hotdog with mustard
explained that in her booth alone
they expect to sell 1,100 "dogs" at

black coffee is their fastest-selling
item except during hot weather
when coke takes the lead.
From the, back of a truck filled
with huge cans of hot coffee, a
young man screamed that at least
2,000 gallons are consumed every
game day.
From a nearby popcorn wagon,
a middle-aged vendor commented
that popcorn was their biggest
seller today, although caramel
corn "usually goes faster." He
postulated that it was because of
the colder weather.
