WASHINGTON ()-The United
State stepped up its atoms-for-
peace program yesterday in an evi-
dent bid to strengthen friendships
with nations outside the Iron Cur-
The Atomic Energy Commission,
in the first transaction of its kind,
announced the sale of 10 tons of
heavy water to India for use in a
reactor devoted to nuclear re-
search. Among other things such
reactors are useful in research to
improve agriculture, medicine and
The AEC expressed hope the
sale "is only a first important step
in a broader collaboration in this
Expanding Research
. The announcement was made
just a few hours ahead of a con-
gressional report saying India
needed heavy water for its rapidly
expanding research work in atomic
energy and commenting on the
"hollowness" of Russian offers to
help other nations.
Heavy water, or deuterium ex-
ide, is used as a moderator to slow
down neutrons and control nuclear
chain reactions. Ten tons is suffi-
cient for an experimental reactor.
President Dwight D. Eisenhow-
er has proposed an international
pool of atomic materials and
know-how under the United Na-
tions to speed the global use of
atomic energy for power and oth-
er peacetime uses, but the pool
has not been set up.
Dulles Comments
Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles has noted that although
Russia voted in favor of a United
Nations atomic clearing house, it
acted with reservations and "with-
out any material support for the
agency at this time." Hence the
United States is moving to help
friendly nations individually.
In a speech at Philadelphia Sat-
urday, Director Theodore C. Strei-
bert of the United States Infor-
mation Agency said public opin-
ion polls in Europe indicate that
Eisenhower's atoms-for-peace plan
has "completely reversed" pessi-
mism that nuclear power would
benefit mankind.
Two Survivors
of Air Force
Crash Spotted
THE PAS, Man.,(M-Two sur-
vivors of a United States Air
Force B47 Stratojet which crash-
ed in the snowy wilderness of
northern Saskatchewan early yes-
terday have been spotted from the
air, the Royal Canadian Air Force
announced, yesterday.
A parachute-rescue team with
survival supplies has been drop-
ped to help them.
An RCAF spokesman said the
men ivere located in the vicinity
of the plane's wreckage, 435 miles
northwest of Winnipeg, and more
than 15 planes are pressing the
search for the two other crewmen
aboard the huge craft.
The sighting of the two survi-
vors earlier was reported by the
44th Air Rescue Squadron at Low-
ry Air Force Base in Denver.
In Winnipeg the RCAF Search
and Rescue Center moved into
high gear to plan evacuation of
the suriviors from the rugged,
lake-dotted swamp area. There
was no immediate indication of
the men's physical condition.

From Reds
Officials in U.S.,
Britain End Plan
LONDON IP)-The Soviet Union
disclosed yesterday it is plugging
for a Geneva-type conference on
Formosa with the Chinese Reds at
the table and the Chinese Nation-
alists left out.
Moscow radio announced that
Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov
had proposed that Britain and In-
dia join in trying to persuade tle
United States to agree to a 10-
nation meeting either in Shanghai
or New Delhi later this month.
In Washington, informed offi-
cials said Britain and the United
States have decided such a confer-
ence without Nationalist China
would be unproductive and have
rejected the proposal.
Officials added :hey understood
this was the view taken by most, if
not all, of the British Common-
wealth prime ministers at their
London meeting, where the Soviet
move was thoroughly discussed.
The Moscow broadcast said Mol-
otov made the proposal in a com-
munication to British Foreign Sec-
retary Anthony Eden Feb. 4 and
that negotiations "are continuing."
Nehru Gats Note
Molotov also communicated his
idea to Prime Minister Nehru of
An Indian spokesman here said
yesterday "It has been reported
.for the last few days that such a
proposal had been made by Russia,
for a conference outside the Unit-
ed Nations, and presumably it has
been discussed by Mr. Nehru dur-
ing his visit. That is as far as we
can go at the moment."
Molotov reviewed the breakdown
of efforts in the United Nations
to get cease-fire talks started and
said that for this reason "coun-
tries specially interested" should
"consider this question at an ap-
propriate conference."
He suggested these countries
could be the United States, Red
China, Britain, Russia, France, In-
dia, Burma, Indonesia, Pakistan
and Ceylon.
U.S. Unwillingness
Molotov sought to blame the
dangerous Formosa situation on
the unwillingness of the United
States and Britain "to take into
consideration" the demands of the
Chinese Communists.
The 'hinese Reds refused to en-
ter United Nations cease-fire talks
unless they were given the Chinese
Nationalist seats in the United Na-
tions and unless the United States
was placed in the role of a de-
The United Nations Security
Council will meet tomorrow to take
up again the cease-fire question.
A United States delegation spokes-
man said, after hearing Molotov's
proposal, "we still consider the
hostilities question a United Na-
tions matter to be handled by the
United Nations Security Council."

DETROIT-"I tiink if we don't
put a ceiling on campaign expendi-
tures, we're going to see an end
to Democracy in America," Sen.
Richard L. Neuberger, (D-Ore.)
said here yesterday.
He described it as "problem
number one" before the Roose-
velt Day dinner of the Detroit
chapter of the Americans for
Democratic Action.
Calling for "the strictest ceil-

he said, -"I think the sum ought to

Ser. Neuberger called the "pow-

Eisenhower administration "one

perpetrated on the American peo-
The government pays one half
the price of power projects, he
continued. Power companies get
revenues and "the government gets
the fish ladders. The fish go
through for nothing."
Criticizing the administration as
.government by gimmick," he said,
of its school program, "when you
start boiling it down, there's noth-
ing in the bottom of the kettle."
Herbert Block, syndicated car-
toonist, criticized what he called
"the government's insecurity sys-
tem" for its "demoralization of the
foreign service" and its attempt to
"plow under Wolfe Ladejinsky."
Praising several libcral Republi-
cans, "Herblock" said, "I think
Eisenhower Republicans are all
right. I only wis" I could be sure
that Eisenhower was one of them."

Gov. Lee, among other things,
assailed -the United Nations and
the foreign- aid program, calling
the latter unconstitutional.
Other GOP meetings through-
out the country produced predic-
tions that Fresident Eisenhower
would run again if called upon in
The President himself, while va-
cationing near Thomasville, Ga.,
declared in a Lincoln Birthday an-
niversary message that "the great-

faith in America.

Secretary Mitchell said in Chi-

Mendes-France May Regain Position,

State Leads Early
However, for a long time it ap-
peared that Michigan State had
finally found a way of defeating
the Wolverines. The Spartans held
the lead for nearly two periods.
The first score proved to be the
most unusual goal of the evening.
Campanini sent the puck all the
way from the Spartan half of the
ice on a straight line toward
Michigan goalie Lorne Howes,
who, in attempting to clear the
puck to a teammate, allowed it to
skid slowly into the net. The time
was 3:05.
Fourteen minutes and six pen-
alties later, after trying several
timessto surprise Howes again with
long shots, Michigan State took a
two-goal lead on Olson's drive
