Sixty-Seven Years, of Editorial Freedom





The United States proposed yes-
terday that the United Nations
Security Council call for imme-
diate discussions on aerial inspec-
tion against surprise attack in the
United States delegate Henry
Cabot Lodge made public a reso-
lution he said the United States
is submitting urging such action.
Lodge, president of the 11-na-
tion Council for April, told a news
conference he hoped to call the
Council into session Tuesday to
consider the resolution.
More Debate Asked
He requested the meeting os-
tensibly for further debate on a
Soviet complaint that the United
States is rendangering peace by
sending nuclear bombers across
the arctic toward Soviet frontiers.
The Council debated the co-
plaint for six hours Monday. So-
viet delegate Arkady A. Sobolev
introduced a resolution asking the
Council to call on the United
States to stop such flights
He withdrew the complaint aft-
er nine of the other 10 members
had spoken against it.
Lodge told reporters yesterday
"the United States is calling the
Security Council together' to try
to less the dangers to world peace
which flow from the existing ca-
pability in the world of masswe
surprise attack, whether by planes
or by missiles."
Discussion Sought
The proposal would have the
Council call upon Britain, Can-
ada, France, the Soviet Union, the
United-States, Denmark, Norway,
and "any other states having ter-
ritory north of the Arctic Circle"
to name representatives for im-
mediate discussions on technical
arrangements for such inspection.
The resolution recommends
there be promptly established an
international i ns p e c t i on zone
against surprise attack "compris-
ing the area north of the Arctic
circle with certain exceptions and
Workers Hit
Union Abuse
ernment report shows workers are
speaking out in greater force than
ever against real or fancied abuses
by their labor unions or employ-
The National Labor Relations
Board reported last night anoth-
er record increase in the number
of complaints filed by individual
workers against both unions and
employers. The total was nearly
triple that of last year,
Workers are filing twice as
many complaints against employ-
ers as against unions. But this 2-1
ratio compares with 4-1 only a
few years age, meaning that em-
ployes are hitting at unions with
a mounting number of complaints.

ing worker assertion of rights un-

WASHINGTON (W)-A policy of
"no retreat on essentials" was laid
down by President Dwight D.
Eisenhower and his secretary of
defense yesterday in their struggle
to get a major revamping of the
country's defense setup through
Eisenhower, at Augusta, Ga.,
conferred by phone with Secretary
Neil McElroy whose talk of trying
to find some common ground with
congressional critics had led to a
report the administration was con-
ducting a retreat on major por-
tions of its plan.
Push for Modernizing
McElroy quickly issued a state-
ment that, while not wedded to
specific wording, the administra-
tion would pursue its drive for "a
modernized defense establish-
At Augusta, Press Secretary
James C. Hagerty followed with
a statement. The salient para-
graph, which Hagerty said was
personally penned by President
Eisenhower, declared:
"Both the President and the sec-
retary are agreed that there can
be no compromise on-or retreat
from -the essentials of this legis-_
Eisenhower 'Disturbed'
Hagerty pictured President
Eisenhower as disturbed by the
compromise reports, which grew
out of McElroy's testimony last
week before the House Armed
Services Committee.
That committee appearse in-
cline to go most of the way with
Eisenhower on unified command
of field forces and a weapons re-
search boss.
The rest of President Eisen-
hower's defense reorganization
program is in for varying degrees
of trouble in the committee.

Four diplomatic, talks on summit
conference issues.
The department's statement
was based on a preliminary report
received from Ambassador Llew-
ellyn Thompson in Moscow.
Thompson was reporting on a
note from Soviet Foreign Minis-
ter Andrei Gromyko which he re-
ceived earlier yesterday.
The United States, Great Brit-
ain and France on Thursday pro-
posed that their ambassadors
meet with Gromyko jointly in-
stead of separately as Gromyko
had requested.
The Western powers also said
the meeting should begin imme-
diately and the ambassadors
should discuss issues which might
come up at a summit as well as
make arrangements for a pre-
summit foreign ministers session.
The State Department press of-
ficer, Lincoln White, said the full
text of Gromyko's reply to the
April 24 note was just beginning
to come in. He added there would
be no further reaction from the
United States government until

WASHINGTON ()-'President
Eisenhower's top disarmament
policymakers met in an extra-
ordinary session yesterday amid
reports of a developing showdown
between Secretary of State John

weapons tests.
Dulles, reportedly wants to
change United States policy and
take determined steps toward end-

The agreement, if adopted, would
call for inspection to guard against
cheating. The suspension would
become effective after the United
States concludes its spring and

Strauss has waged a long public
campaign in favor of continuing
tests unless a suspension can be
achieved as part of a broad dis-
