Bid for Peace
MOSCOW-(1P) -Soviet Prime
Minister V. M. Molotov declared
yesterday that only lunatics could
hope to frighten the Soviet peo-
ple with a hydrogen bomb "which
dops not exist."
He asserted in an election
speech that while all sorts of
blackmailers from the imperialist
camp had been trying to scare the
U.S.S.R. with a monopoly of
atomic bombs, the U.S.S.R was
successfully mastering atomic en-
ergy and atomic weapons.
"YESTERDAY they terrorized
us with the atom bomb," he said
in a pre-election speech in Mos-
cow which was broadcast by the
"Today they are striking ter-
ror with the so-called hydrogen
bomb,which never before exist-
ed in the world.

insane calculation that they can

three national lodge officers.
Three grand Aerie officials and
an Ohio State Eagles officer were
named in 11 separate indictments
- with charges ranging from
blackmail to publicizing a lottery.

THE SECRET indictments were

Harry Leopold said they were

Ottawa lodge to do these things.

Lie called attention to a letter
from the United States govern-

deportation proceedings against
Kyriazidis and suggesting that he
be given accreditation for 60 days
or three months.

MEANWHILE in Washington,
Senator Knowland (R.-Calif.)

Lie was acting "as a partisan of
the Chinese Communists" by sug-
gesting they replace the Chinese
Nationalists in the UN.
Knowland said Lie apparently
had abandoned his impartiality.

Knowland and Senator Brews-
ter (R Me) demanded tht United

active leadership to prevent ad-
dition of another Soviet Russian
satellite to UN membership.

Hungary Acts On
BUDAPEST, Hungary - ( -
Hungary used the Robert A. Voge-
ler case to demand last night that
the United States recall three mili-
tary officers attached to the U.S.
Legation in Budapest.
The recall of two British lega-
tion attaches was demanded pre-
* * *
THE AMERICAN officers are
Col. James Kraft, military attache;
Lt. Col. John Hoyne, deputy mili-
tary attache; and Maj. Donald E.
Griffin, deputy air attache.
Hungary's Communist govern-
ment declared all "persona non
grata" (unwelcome) on the basis
of testimony in the espionage
and sabotage trial of Vogeler,
the American roving represen-
tative of the International Tele-
phone company, and six co-de-
fendants last month.
Vogeler, who was convicted and
sentenced to 15 years imprison-
ment, testified Hoyne and Griffin
had been in touch with him and
that Kraft "also knew about my
espionage activities as he had been
a close friend ever since we met in
Vienna several years ago."
* * * .
(IN WASHINGTON, State De-
partment officials said the Hun-
garian demand was under study.
(Speculation was that the
three would be withdrawn, since
Budapest declared them person-
ally unacceptable. In return the
United States could oust one or
more Hungarian diplomats, or
break relations. The ouster
course seemed more likely.)
(The British foreign office said
Britain will withdraw their two
attaches, but "wholly rejects"
Hungary's reason for asking their
recall. A spokesman said it was
established diplomatic practice
that a mission member be with-
drawn when he is declared per-
sona non grata.)
Hungary again protested to the
United States against what it
called the "over swollen number of
the staff of this legation."

Medicine may fall "so horribly"f
behind today-in spite of surgical
advances-because doctors "wor-
ship" laboratory reports instead
of getting to the core of a man's
sickness, Dr. Walter C. Alvarez
of the Mayo Clinic claimed last!
Lecturing on psychomatic prob-!
lems in medicine, Dr. Alvarez de-
clared that "one of the greatest
curses in medicine is that doctors '
stop looking for other possible
causes of sickness after they have
made a diagnosis."
"WHEN YOU have a difficult
medical case, especially of a psy-
chotic nature," Dr. Alvarez ad-
vised, "talk to the sick man's rela-
tives, his wife, and his friends;
you may learn ten times more'
than if you just depend on lab-
"In other less severe cases,
talk to the patient, take his his-
tory, size him up, and learn to
make a diagnosis from a look or
a handshake," he explained.
Dr. Alvarez said every doctor
should ask his patient two simple
but very important questions:
"Are you happy?" and "Why did
you come here?"
WHEN A direct and pointed
question does not serve its pur-
pose, the doctor should then learn
to gain the information he needs
by asking more general and vague
questions, that gradually draw the
Dr. Alvarez cited cases in
which mistaken diagnosesoc-
cured because doctors "swal-
lowed laboratory reports whole."
"These mistakes are made by
even some of the country's lead-
ing internists, and that is why I'm
here tonight making a fuss about
it," he said.
Another difficulty cited by Dr.
Alvarez is that doctors "look for
the rare causes of sickness and'
miss the all-too-common.
PARIS-(/P)-French police and
mobile guards used tear gas
against demonstrating strikers in
two French cities last night as
tempers flared higher in the docks
and public utilities walk-outs.
Tear gas grenades were thrown
at Moulins, in central France,
where a crowd of about 600 had
defied police orders and marched
on the prefecture after a meeting
sponsored by the Communist-
dominated General Confederation
SEVERAL persons were slight-
ly injured, and one was arrested.
Strikers who tried to parade
through the streets of Rombas,
near Metz, were dispersed by
mobile guards using tear gas.
One guard was injured, and 15
demonstrators were arrested.

WASHINGTON - (P) - Two
Republican lawmakers yesterday
accused Secretary of State Ache-
son of "unfitness" for his past for
recommending that Valentin A.
Gubitchev be deported instead of
being imprisoned as a Soviet spy.
Senator Wherry (R-Neb) nd
Rep. Fellows (R-Me) made t at
charge in separate statements
which also asserted that Acheson's
move blocked the execution of jus-
tice in this country.
* * *
MEANWHILE, Valentin A. Gu-
bitchev was reported to have ac-
cepted the government's offer to
leave this country instead of going'
to jail for 15 years.
The convicted spy reportedly
will leave the United States
aboard the Polish liner Batory
on March 20.
Both the New York Times and
the New York Herald Tribune said
they had learned of Gubitchev's
The Times said Gubitchev's wife,
Lydia, would sail with him and
that it was believed his passage
to Russia would be financed by
the United Nations.
GUBITCHEV, a suspended Uni-
ted Nations employe, was given a
15. - year suspended sentence
Thursday on condition that he
return to Russia in two weeks. He
was convicted by a New York
court of conspiring with Judith
Coplon, former Justice Depart-
ment worker, to steal U.S. secrets
for Russia. She was given a 15-
year prison term.
In recommending this treat-
ment for Gubitchev, both the
State and Justice Departments
indicated their hope that the
Soviets may give similar treat-
ment to Americans who may be
involved in court proceedings
behind the iron curtain.
But Wherry asserted that "Rus-
sia's friendship cannot be bought
HE SAID the Soviet "propagan-
da machine already has begun to
call the action of the United
States in the Gubitchev case a
sign of weakness and recognition
that Russia was right all the
Noting that no suspension
was recommended in Miss Cop-
Ion's case, Wherry said, "sen-
tencing one person to 15 years
in prison and freeing another is
a travesty upon justice."
At the same time, lawyers for
Judith Coplon, along with the
Russian, filed briefs with the U.S.
Court of Appeals in support of
their request for bail. The govern-
ment has until Monday to file
