BERLIN - (A') -- A go-getter Western mayor cut red tape and fed
thousands of hungry East Germans yesterday in a heart-warming
demonstration of practical food relief on Berlin's Iron Curtain border.
Communist propagandists let out a- roar of rage at the act. The Soviet

The Supreme Soviet, the elect-

Its job Is to approve whatever

THE CALL for the July 28 meet-

against Beria; former No. 2 man
of the Malenkov - Beria - Molotov
triumvirate, who is now under ar-
rest on a charge of plotting against
the Communist party and serving

The Moscow radio reported
Communist chieftains in the So-

birthplace, have exposed serious
perversions in local rule and
blamed them on "the cunning
machinations of the bourgeois-na-
tionalist Beria."
Senate Group
Votes To Pass
Excess Profits
WASHINGTON-(A')-In sharp
contrast to its House counterpart,
the Senate Finance Committee ap-
proved quickly and without change
a House-passed bill to continue
the excess profits tax for the re-
mainder of this year yesterday.
The House Ways and Means
Committee had delayed action for
months on the extension requested
' by President Eisenhower. It sent
the measure along to the House
for passage last week only after
the administration had threaten-
ed to by-pass - the tax-writing
group. The Senate committee act-
ed after a 21/-hour closed-door
Chairman Millikin (R-Colo.)
said the committee approved the
bill "by a comfortable vote," and
he predicted the Senate would send
the measure direct to the White
House without change, possibly
later this week.
Committee approval of the bill

without change gave strength to
the administration's drive to get

ing 15 million dollars worth of free
American food to the stricken So-
viet Zone, Willy Kressmann went
into action yesterday morning.
As Mayor of the American sec-
tor borough of Kreuzberg, he
opened a relief market at 9 a.m.
in Oranienplatz, facing the police-
guarded frontier of Soviet East
By collecting private donations
and drawing on borough charitable
funds, he stocked the market with
milk and fruits for sale to East
Germans at less than a fifth their
normal price.
Five thousand East Germans
swarmed past the Communist po-
lice posts to gather up 1,820 quarts
of milk, 2,200 pounds of cherries
and 11,200 oranges before the mar-
ket closed at 7 p.m.
Kressmann announced it would
reopen today with potatoes fea-
The East Germans' depreciated
currency was accepted at par with
the West mark at Oranienplatz.
In regular exchange the rate is
5.8 to 1. So the food was far cheap-
er than East Germans had ever
been able to buy it at home in
eight years of Communist rule.
The trek of hungry East Ger-
mans made a mockery of Com-
munist claims that state chain
stores were again bulging with
supplies. ADN tried to parry the
psychological blow by charging
that most of the visitors to Oran-
ienplatz were "jobless West Ber-
Regent Press
Ban Still Open
To Discussion
Opening the doors of Regents'
meeting to the press is still an
open matter as far as the Re-
gents are concerned, a University
spokesman said yesterday.
Arthur L. Brandon, director of
University Relations commented
on the formation of a "freedom
of information" committee of
Michigan newsmen yesterday in
Lansing whose goal is on-the-spot
coverage of Regent meetings.

THE REGENTS have met twice
with a former MPA committee but
no final decision was reached, ac-
cording to Brandon.
"On several occasions the Re-
gents have expressed willing-
ness to continue discussions" but
have not been approached by the
press representatives, he said.
Contacted in Detroit last night,
Brewster Cambell, executive city
editor of the Detroit Free Press
and chairman of the MPA group

DETROIT - (') - Michi-
gan's first native-born Wolver-
ine is dead-apparently because
his constitution couldn't take
the environment of the Wol-
verine State.
Frank G. McInnis, director of
the Detroit zoo, sadly an-
nounced the death of Frosty,
the three and a half month-old
wolverine who made his debut
to the public only two weeks
Frosty, born March 23 to a
wolverine that had been cap-
tured in Alaska, died of a bowel
infection, McInnis said. He ex-
plained it is an ailment that
frequently hits zoo-born ani-
mals when they are weaned, ap-
parently because of elements
lacking in the unaccustomed
Just why Michigan was nam-

seems quite certain, but Mc-

WASHINGTON - () - The Big
Three foreign ministers proposed
yesterday a meeting "in the early
autumn" with Russia's Foreign
Minister V. M. Molotov.
Ending their five-day confer-

ilue saying the meeting with Rus-
sia should consider "directly the
first steps which should lead to a
satisfactory solution of the Ger-
man problem" and conclusion of
an overdue Austrian peace settle-

French leaders also declared they
would support existing common
policies indefinitely toward Com-
munist China even after a Kor-

An American spokesman said
this means continued opposition
to admission of Communist China
into the UN and tight controls on
strategic shipments to the Com-
munist mainland until these moves
are changed through consultation.
THE THREE-power statement,
outlining their Far East decisions,
also warned the Chinese Commu-
nist government against launch-
ing any new aggression "in any
other part of Asia" after a Korea
The communique also pledged
strong support to the United Na-

peaceful means afterward.

after a Korean armistice.

2. Communist China is not to

Prisoner Return
clouded truce prospects today with
protests, demands and heavy fight-
ing but President Eisenhower's
homewardbound special envoy re-
iterated confidence that the South
Korean roadblock to an armistice
agreement has been cleared.
Sent to Korea to get President
Syngman Rhee back in line, the
special envoy, Walter S. Robert-
son, said before departing Tokyo:
"Nothing agreed upon with Rhee
is inconsistent with an immediate
implementation of the truce and
the long-announced -objectives of
the United Nations, the United
States and the Republic of Korea
for an independent, unified Korea
and a just and lasting peace in
the Far East."
Eisenhower was described after a
White House session- with con-
gressional leaders as optimistic
over chances for a cease-fire.
Red and UN truce teams were
to meet again today.
The only concrete word to
come out of yesterday's 39-min-
ute session was that the Reds
lodged another protest. They
charged that an Allied shell
landed Sunday in the Panmun-
jom neutral zone.
At Monday's session, the Reds
also lodged a protest, charging
that Allied planes had bombed
and strafed a prisoner of war
camp north of Pyongyang.

The Red radio at Pyongyang
broadcast renewed demands that
the UN Command recapture "im-

anti-Red North Korean prisoners
released last month on orders of
South Korea's President Syngman
The broadcast heard in Tokyo
last night brushed aside the
contention of Gen. Mark Clark,
UN Far East commander, that
the Red demand was impossible
to meet because the prisoners
had melted away into the civil-
ian population.
Choi Duk Shin, has stayed away
from the truce table since May 25
when Rhee first began to solidify
his opposition to any armistice
that would leave Korea divided.'
Although the talks remained
secret, there were surface indi-
cations that the Red delegates
were pressing for more assur-
ances that Rhee can be kept in

side the conference hut said the

Seen by Local Experts
Senator McCarthy is not at present strong enough to openly,
oppose President Eisenhower, campus political scientists said yes-
Agreeing that the current Central Intelligence Agency-William
Bundy controversy is excellent material for a White House-McCarthy
showdown it is the opinion of these experts that such a showdown
will not be forthcoming.
** * *
PROF. PHILIP B. TAYLOR of the political science department
said that at the present time McCarthy was not strong enough to at-

tempt an open disagreement. He'
pointed out that before he could
follow such a policy it would be
necessary to first "maneuver Ike
into a position" that would be fa
vorable to attack.
"Until now," Prof. Taylor said,
"Ike has been giving ground, and
if this is the issue on which he
will stand firm, it must be given
time to develop."
Citing as proof that McCarthy is
"not yet prepared to stand firm
against Ike" the fact that ,he
yielded to the White House on the
Matthews issue, Prof. Taylor dub-
bed this move a "tactical" one.
CLAIMING that the Democratic
senators have of late "come out
more openly in opposition" to the
committee, he pointed out that
they were merely performing theirI
,duty as the opposition party.
"It would not be in their in-
terests to oppose McCarthy
against Eisenhower for any oth-
er reason," he said.
By their opposition in this is-
sue, the Democrats "can gain only
partisan advantage, and realizing
this they will use this power with
some restraint," he pointed out.

Pointing out that the Protestant

solid base, he concluded.

Data on Bundy

By McCarthy
Senator McCarthy (R-Wis.)
said yesterday he will give the
Central Intelligence Agency "de-
rogatory" information on CIA of-
ficial William P. Bundy.
According to the United Press,
McCarthy and CIA Chief Allen W.
Dulles agreed to work out a for-
mula for a Congressional investi-
gation of CIA employes without
giving away super-secret CIA data.
McCarthy said his subcommittee
will turn over to the CIA "all in-
