Bill Passed
By House
Senate To Rule
On Cut Version
last night approved by a vote of
221-185 a trimmed-down version
of President Eisenhower's request
for authority to admit 240,000
"special quota" refugees from
communism and other immigrants
into the United States.
It set the. limit at 217,000.
THE SENATE put over until to-
day final action on its own ver-
sion of the legislation,.
It approved an amendment by
Sen. McCarran (D-Nev.) pro-
viding for the admission of
2,000 Chinese refugees and re-
ducing from 12,000 to 10,000 the
number of escapees residing in
Allied Western European coun-
tries who could enter the United
States under the bill.
The aliens would be admitted
within the next three years and
would be in addition to the regu-
lar quotas of newcomers from for-
eign lands.
AS PASSED by the House, the
special quota group would take in
4,000 orphans under ten years of
4 age, including 1,000 Korean War
waifs to be raised at the famous
' Bays Town in Nebraska.
The legislation was one of the
last big obstacles in the way of
congressional adjournment this
weekend and was listed as a
t "must" on the administration's
calendar for this session.
Some Congress members have
attacked the bill as. opening the
door to Red agents to infiltrate
this country.,

admitting persons who have fled
from Communist lands, the United.
States would ease the strain on

Extremists Oust
Gang Up.To Vote 'No Confidence'
In Premier's Balanced Chamber
ROME-()-Foes of the left and right ganged up on Premier
Alcide De Gasperi's new pro-Western Government in the Chamber
of Deputies yesterday and overthrew it, 282-263.
Communists and Socialists teamed with Monarchists and Fascists
to vote "no confidence" in DeGasperi in the precariously balanced
* * * *
IT WAS THE FIRST such defeat for the premier, 72 years old,
who has held the reins of Italy's government since Dec. 10, 1945. The
new government, formed two weeks ago, was his eighth.
De Gasperi needed 273 votes to stay in office.'
Thirty-seven deputies, members of three small center parties
formerly allied with De Gasperi's majority Christian Democrat
Party, abstained. They could have provided the margin of victory.

In Indochinia
SAIGON, Indochina -. (4P) --
French Union forces hammered by
air, sea and land yesterday at a
3,000-man Vietminh regiment base
near the coast of Central Indo-
china north of Hue, the capital of
Annam province.
French officers said heavy
fighting had developed in this big-
gest action of the Indochinese War
since an armistice ended the
shooting in Korea.
THE FRENCH threw 10,000 men
into the assault, hoping to close
a ring around the Communist-led
troops before darkness gave the
enemy a chance to flee from en-
trenchments to nearby mountains.
Several battalions of the en-
emy already have been surround-
ed and are being pounded by
American-supplied B-26 bomb-
ers and by warships firing from
the South China Sea, the French
said. French tanks are also on
The Vietminh regiment has been
harrassing communications be-
tween Hue and Qupn Tri, 40 miles
to the north, for several months.
Though it has occupied several
villages, the fight was reported
centered 25 miles north of Hue.
The attack developed as Maurice
DeJean, former French ambassa-
dor to Tokyo, arrived in Saigon to
take up his job as France's new
commissioner general in Indo-
France is determined ,to bring
an end to the seven-year-old war
either through force or by nego-
tiation, DeJean said.

> Eight members of the 590-seat
chamber were absent.
Whoops of delight burst from
the Communist and extreme So-
cialist members when DeGasperi's
defeat was announced. Monarch-
ists and members of the Fascistl
Italian Social Movement greeted
the news with greater reserve, but
with obvious pleasure.

DE GASPERI, fatigued by al
long, impassioned plea for votes
just before the balloting, left the
chember immediately to turn in
his resignation to President Luigi
He told newsmen on leaving:
"The margin of my defeat
was very small. It was too bad
the coalition parties did not see
it a little bit more our way."
He referred to the Democratic
Socialists, Republicans and Liber-
als who stood for election as a bloc
with the Christian Democrats, but
decided not to vote with them.
The crisis may lead to a new
general election.
De Gasperi's speech to the
chamber was primarily a rebuttal
to a week-long attack on his past
middle-of-the-road cabinet, a firm
supporter of the North Atlantic

Dulles Firm
Against Red
China in UN
Says U.S. Would
Veto if Necessary
of State Dulles gave notice yester-
day that the United States will not
htrade admission of Red China into
the United Nations for Korean uni-
He said that if necessary this
country may use the veto to bar
the Peiping regime.
DULLES LAID down this policy
in announcing he is leaving Sun-
day by plane for Seoul to consult
President Syngman Rhee in prep-
aration for the Korean peace con-
ference. He has asked a bi-parti-
san group of four senators to go
with him to help negotiate with
Rhee a promised United States-
South Korean security treaty.
At the peace conference,
scheduled to be held by late Oc-
tober, Dulles said he would not
be prepared to agree to the uni-
fication of divided Korea at the
price of bringing Communist
China into the UN and above all
into the Security Council.
At a news conference Dulles told
a questioner that if membership
for Red China should reach a Se-
curity Council vote, the United
States will consider itself free
to reverse its previous position
against wielding a veto to block
the admission or recognition of ap-
plicant nations.
He added that his government
would be reluctant to do this and
doubted it would be necessary be-
cause so many other nationsshare
the American opposition to the
Peiping regime.
a * "
THE SECRETARY'S flying trip
to Seoul, expected to require about
a week, carries out his pledge of
an early meeting with Rhee. This
promise was announced during ne-
gotiations to prevail upon the
South Korean leader to go along
with the armistice.
A major purpose of the Seoul
meeting is to work out the Unit-
ed States-South Korean security
Because any such compact re-
quires Senate ratification, Dulles
said he has asked Sen. Knowland
(R-Calif.), the acting majority
leader; and Sens. Smith ,R-NJ),
Lyndon Johnson (D-Tex.) and
Russell (D-Ga.) to go with him.
DULLES FOR the first time
stated two points about the Ko-
rean situation that had recently
become widely known. One was
that if the political conference
turns out to be a Communist sham
the United States after 90 days
will join South Korea in walking
out and considering what to do
The other was that the United
States-South Korea security
treaty may contain a provision
for retaining American bases and
forces on Republic of Korea ter-
Dulles took the position that
would not obligate this country to
keep bases and forces in Korea.
He told a questioner that such a
provision thus would not conflict
with any separate settlement
which might be worked out with
the Communists to withdraw all
foreign military forces from Korea.4
