By Churchill
Cautious Againsi
LONDON-(IP)-Prime Ministe
Churchill yesterday called for<
conference of the leading wor
powers to ease world tension an
cautioned against aiming for<
settlement of everything in a "sin
gle stroke."
Y Kicking off a two-day foreig:
affairs debate in the House o
Commons, the 78-year-old Prim
Minister flatly declared:
* * *
"IT WOULD be a mistake to as
sume that nothing can be settle
with the Soviet government un
less or until everything is settled.
Cheers greeted Churchill's
carefully weighed statement-
delivered slowly and solemnly.
While he did not mention the
United States directly, his words
were generally taken as nudg-
ing Washington into taking ad-
vantage of what he described as
an apparent change in Soviet at-
titude since Stalin's death.
A Big Three conference-pat
terned after the Roosevelt-Stalin
Churchill meetings during Worli
War II-was hinted by the Prim
Minister but he did not elaborate
Churchill suggested the confer
ence be "composed of the smalles
number of powers and persons pos
sible, and they should meet witht
measure of informality and a stil
greater measure of privacy an<

The Prime Minister, who has
personally taken over handling
British foreign policy in the ab-
sence of ailing Foreign Secretary
Anthony Eden, appealed for a
cautious Western approach "to

mains and particularly in the
Kremlin since the death of Sta-
Churchill went to to say: "Abov
all, it would be a pity if the natura
desire to reach a general settle-
ment of international policy wer
to impede any spontaneous anc
healthy evolution which may b
taking place inside Russia."
Both sides of the house sat si-
lent and tense as Churchill out-
lined a policy seeking "piecemeal
solutions" rather than an all-
out settlement and explained:
"Settlement of two or three o
our difficulties would be an im-
portant gain to every peace loving
country. For instance, peace ir
Korea and conclusion of an Aus-
trian treaty, might lead 'to an
easement of our relations for the
next few years."

Texas Cities
Hit by Twin
Tragedy Strikes
Lake Ship Also
By the Associated Press
Twin tornadoes ravaged two
Texas cities yesterday.
At least 17 persons died in the
wreckage of buildings and splint-
ered homes-10 at Waco, a city of
about 90,000 in Central Texas
and seven at San Angelo, 200 miles
* * *
THE NUMBER of injured in
both cities ran well into the hund-
One tornado struck Waco with
a violence which demolished a
six-story building. Eight persons
in that building were killed. Fall-
ing debris crushed four motorists
to death in their cars. Flying
debris killed two youths.
The other tornado sickled a
rubble-strewn path a half mile
wide and a mile long through a
residential area of San Angelo, a
wool center of 50,000.
It splintered houses, wrecked a
school, injured a number of child-
ren in it, and twisted automobiles
into rubble.
SOME 1,200 miles northeast and
hours earlier, gales whipped Lake
Superior into a fury and sank an
ore-laden freighter.
The Coast Guard said yester-
day that 14 known survivors and
nine bodies had been picked up
off Isle Royale where a loaded
iron ore freighter swamped in a
violent Lake Superior storm with
31 aboard.
It was possible, the Coast Guard
said, the body of a tenth victim

The Allies charged the Reds with disregarding vital questions
yesterday on the Communist eight-point prisoner of war proposal
and called for some answers "as soon as possible."
Lt. Gen. William K. Harrison Jr., senior Allied delegate, said
the Communist negotiators had "uni-laterally" declared no prob-

"Our side finds it quite diffi-

"We have realistically recog-
