Secrecy Lid
On Meeting
Gets Protest
Counsel Claims
Adams 'Silenced'
Eisenhower administration yester-
day clamped a secrecy lid on a
now-famous meeting which helped
prepare the way for the Army's
challenge to Sen. Joseph R. Mc-
Carthy (R-Wis.).
The "don't talk" edict brought
swift protests from Democrats on
the McCarthy-Army investiga-
tions subcommittee. They demand
that top federal officials-up to
but not including President Eisen-
hower-be called if necessary to
find out whether the Army's ac-
tions were masterminded at the
highest level of government.
THE MEETING in question
was held Jan. 21 and was attended
by Sherman Adams, the Presi-
dent's top assistant; and Atty.
Gen. Herbert Brownell.
Army Counselor John G. Ad-
ams testified Wednesday that
Sherman Adams advised him at
this meeting, held in Brownell's
office; to keep a written record
of the Army's troubles with Sen.
McCarthy's office over Pvt. G.
David Schine. Later publication
of the record led to the present
blazing row.
Yesterday Democrats on the
subcommittee pressed for more de-
tails of the meeting, and down
over the televised hearings camne
the Administration's secrecy lid.
Joseph N. Welch, counsel to .the
Army officials, said. Adams had
ben instructed to say no more
about the meeting. These instruc-
tions, he said, came from the act-
ing head of the Defense Depart-
ment, Robert Anderson. Welch
added that he understood Ander-
son was transmitting them for
somebody else.
THAT POINTED to the White
House. And at the White House,
Asst. Press Secretary Murfay Sny-
der, when asked if the order orig-
inated there, would say only: "I
have no information to give out."
The subcommittee Thursday
gave the green light to sponsor-
ship of telecasts of the hearings.
Sen. Karl E. Mundt (R-N.D.,
chairman of the subcommittee,
asked the networks to use "good
judgment in the types of sponsor-
ship which they secure, since these
televised hearings will be going

From Fort

The United States and France
have arranged high-level talks to
discuss specific conditions under
which American and other Allied
forces might intervene in the war
in Indochina.
Diplomatic officials said these
secret conversations would start
within the next few days, probab-
ly in Paris, an answer to an ur-

formation about American inten-

authorities say France has not

American authorities empha-
sized that the agreement to
talk with France did not con-
stitute a United States com-
mitment to enter the war.
President Eisenhower, with the
approval of Congress, will decids
this, they said, if and when
France meets conditions Secretary
'of State John Foster Dulles laid
down in a speech on Indochina a
week ago.
Sec. Dulles has informed French
Ambassador Henri Bonnet, it was
said, that the views' set forth in
this address were not just his own
but represented clear-cut Ameri-
can government policy.

THE SECRETARY said flatly
that "the present situation does
not provide a suitable basis for
the United States to participate"
in the seven-year-old fight in In-

other top officials, will speak

The first of seriously wounded
French Union soldiers were evac-
uated from captured Dien Bien
Phu last night, the French Com-
mand announced.
The first eight men of the 450
who are expected to be brought
out by agreement with the Com-
munist-led Vietminh arrived by
plane at Hanoi just before 11 p.m.
THE FRENCH command said
the helicopter which flew to Dien
Bien Phu to bring out the first
load was "blocked in" by stovry
weather for hours after landing,
delaying the evacuation opera-
The delay had caused rumors
that the Vietminh was placing
fresh political demands as its
price for carrying out the evac-

Dien Bien Phu Thursday when a
French doctor headed a mission
to the former French fortress
175 miles west of Hanei.
At Geneva, Soviet Foreign Min-
ister V. M. Molotov moved slight-
ly yesterday from the rigid pos-
tion taken by the Communists to-
ward ending the war in Indo-
china. But formidable obstacles
still stand between the Indochina
conference and peace.
Molotov proposed an amend-
ment to the Communist armistice
plan presented earlier by Viet-
minh representatives. The amend-
ment provided for supervision 'of'
the armistice by a neutral nation's
BOTH UNITED States and
French spokesmen declined com-
ment, but one French delegation
source said it was "a concession
of one of the points which we re-
garded as most important."
Molotov, yesterday's chairman,
announced a two-day recess in
Indochina talks. He said that a

meeting restricted to delegation
heads and three advisors each
would be held on Monday.

Canadian Cabinet Divided
St. Lawrence Plans
President Eisenhower's signature on the St. Lawrence seaway
Bill after 30 years of controversy does not assure Canada's acceptance
of United States participation in the project to open the Great Lakes
to ocean shipping.
While the Canadian cabinet is divided on the question of whether
to give up the plan for an all Canadian seaway- or the one proposed
in the Wiley-Dondero Bill, they made it clear that the power project
in the international rapids section of the river will not be delayed
by negotations over the seaway.

Prison in East
Germany Sets
Jarecki Free
Henry Jarecki, former Univer-
sity student, was released three
days ago from an East German
prison after being confined for
two weeks by the Russians.
Reason cited by the Soviets for
Jarecki's imprisonment was that
he was making too many purchas-
es in the Russian Zone. In defense
Jarecki claimed he had made only
one purchase, a camera.
Released with Jarecki were Wil-
liam Koslow, an American stu-
dent and John Deull, a tourist.
Both were being held on similar
charges. Intervention by the
American Government resulted in

The bill that Eisenhower sign-

struction by the United States
of a 46-mile seaway between
Cornwall and Lake Ontario at a
cost of $105,000,000.
The legislation becomes opera-
