U.S. Condemns
Red War Scare
U.S. Ambassador Lodge Delivers
Indictment to General Assembly
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (A)-The United States yesterday ac-.
cused the Soviet Union of raising an "artificial war scare" in the Middle
East with the aim of turning the Arab nations into Soviet satellites.
United States Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge delivered a blister-
ing indictment of the Soviet Union before the 82-nation General
Assembly as support developed for a move to-have Secretary General
Dag Hammarskjold take a personal role in the Middle East crisis.
Five Nations Participate
At least five nations were working on such a proposal, to be
submitted in the event Syria continues to refuse mediation efforts
by King Saud of Saudi Arabia.
Sir , Leslie Munro of New Zealand, the assembly president, ad-
journed the sessign until Monday. He pleaded with the members to

After the speech by Lodge and
appeals by other speakers for Syria
to accept mediation, the Syrian
delegation called a news confer-
ence where a spokesman said his
country does not "accept any medi-
ation which would take this com-
plaint out of the United Nations."
U.S. Won't be Halted
Lodge declared the United States
will not be halted by Soviet threats
from carrying out the purposes of
the Eisenhower Doctrine to aid
Middle East countries "the Soviet
Union seeks to destroy."
"Let there be no question about
our capacity to offer this support,"
he said. "We are strong, and our
allies are strong."
Lodge asserted the true aim of
the Soviet Union in charging that
the United States is prodding Tur-
key to attack Syria is to "pose
before the world as the savior of
the Arabs."
'Bully' Turkey
He said the Kremlin wants to
"bully Turkey with threats of ex-
tinctioAi and frighten the rest of us
into doing nothing," and "blacken
the name of the United States"
and destroy its historic frieudship
with the Middle East.
Lodge called the Soviet Union a
chronic law-breaker, not only
seeking to be regarded as a good
citizen, but actually trying to sit in
the judge's seat and sentence the
whole law-abiding community to

France Hit
By Strikes
PARIS (A')-Exasperated French
workers walked off their jobs yes-
terday to protest sky-rocketing liv-
ing costs and governmental shilly-
Losses to industry were estim-
ated in the millions of dollars as
factories closed and transport
ground to a halt all across France.
But basic utilities-gas, electric-
ity, water and telephone-contin-
ued to operate, thus blunting the
effect of the strikeon the lives of
ordinary Frenchman.
Country Paralyzed
With the life of the country
largely paralyzed, Socialist Guy
Mollet continued his efforts to
form a new Cabinet and end a
crisis which has left France with-
out a government for 26 days.
Whether he would succeed was
anybody's guess.
The strike redoubled the sense
of frustration that has gripped
Frenchmen since this latest dem-
onstration of governmental insta-
bility. This one has apparently
shocked them as none of the pre-
ceding 23 postwar C',inet crises
Sense of Frustration
In fact, most observers felt this
sense of frustration was largely
responsible for thestrikes, the
first major ones ever during a
governmental crisis.
Very few of the strikers have
formulated definite wage de-
mands and if they had they are
well aware there is no government
to deal with them. Consequently,
the most they can hope for is a.
public demonstration of their
deep discontent.
The streets were piled with un-
collected garbage cans. Social se-
curity offices closed, leaving
many families strapped for cash.
The television network closed
down. The three state-owned ra-
dio networks played only records
and gave short news bulletins.
Gang Leader
In New York
NEW YORK (I)-Albert Anas-

er of the old Murder, Inc., mob,
was assassinated yesterday in a
barber's chair in a mid-town hotel.
"He was taking over the mob,"
said a ranking police offiial, who
asked that his name not be used.
This spokesman said two masked
gunmen who shot Anastasia and
then escaped-apparently by sub-
way-were professionals, hired to
thwart Anastasia's lust for greater
underworld power.

success on Oct. 22. They were
guarded in their answers, until
data can be analyzed.
But LaVier, under prodding
questions, finally agreed there
were adequate reasons to believe
the Oct. 22 rocket passed theI
hoped-for 4,000 mile mark "by a
few hundred miles."
Then came the inevitable ques-
tion: If you can do this, can you
reach the moon with a research
rocket, say within a year?
Doesn't See Why Not
"Technologically, I don't see why
it couldn't be done," said LaVier
to the first part of the question.
As to whether it could be done
within a year, his answer was that
the Far Side scientists weren't
working on the moon project.
Since the Far Side project is
completed, is a second phase to
come, involving an even more far
reaching effort?
That is not a 'decision for the
Far Side project people but for
higher authorities, like the Secre-
tary of the Air Force, LaVier re-
Russia Ready for Attempt
A reporter noted that Russia
apparently is getting ready for an
attempt to rocket to the moon. Has
the Air Force been told to stay
away from the moon?
"No," said the colonel.
Somebody recalled that scien-
tists have the theory that if a
speed of seven miles per second is
attained, an object could be push-
ed out beyond the gravitational
pull of the earth, and "escape"
from gravity. The speed of the
rocket in the Oct. 22 shot was esti-
mater at about five miles per sec-
Seven Miles Per Second
LaVier said it is possible to
achieve a seven-miles-per-second
speed. But' the balloon platform
vehicles used in Far Side were not
designed for that type of rocket
launching. He said he thought
some other design or system would
be' used for a higher speed rocket.
Would an object fired out verti-
cally to 4,000 miles come back to
Oh, yes, the colonel said, adding
that it probably burns up on re-
entering the earth's atmosphere.
The two colonels emphasized
that the Far Side rockets were in
no way intended to go into orbit,
like earth satellites.
