Demands Alliance
Against Russians
Clark Says Respect for UN
Lost; Asks Diplomatic Break
WASHINGTON - Gen. Mark Clark yesterday called for a world
alliance against Russia, and added that he had lost respect for the
United Nations.
SThe former UN commander in Korea endorsed a Senate pro-
posal for the U.S. to break off diplomatic relations with the Soviet
Union and its satellites, acrcoding to the Detroit Times.
Testifies Before Committee
Clark testified before the Senate internal security subcommit-
tee and was asked extensively about American policy in the post-
war period.
When questioned about his feelings on U.S. withdrawal from
the UN, Clark said, "I have not had much respect for the United
Nations. I don't think it has con-

Not Settled
WASHINGTON (A - Republican
leaders Tuesday gave up all hope
of adjourning Congress this Satur-
day. They set next week as a new
target, but on the basis of ex-
perience declined to pinpoint an
exact date.
A White House announcement in-
dicated P r e s i d e n t Eisenhow-

complete work until Aug. 19 at
the earliest.
'Another Filibuster'
Senate Republican Leader Know-
" . land (Calif) said the adjournment
schedule hinges mainly on how
much time opponents spend attack-
ing compromise atomic energy
legislation. He said he'd heard
talk of "another filibuster."
Knowland raised the new tar-
get for completing legislation after
he and other GOP leaders held
their weekly conference with Ei-
The House has been ready to
quit since last week. Speaker Mar-
tin (R-Mass) said it now was in
a position to close books "in three.
hours," once the senate gives the
signal. Senate leaders first hoped
r to wind up last Saturday, but two
weeks of atomic energy debate
scotched that plan.
Knowland said the Senate would
remain in session as long as
necessary to pass a atomic en-
ergy bill, which the House did with
a minimum of fuss Monday.
In addition to the farm bill up
Tuesday, Knowland listed these as
other subjects which must be dis-
posed of: Social security, anti-sub-
versives, legislation, unemploy-
ment insurance, national debt, for-
eign aid and extra appropriations.
After finishing legislative activ-
ity, the Senate probably will recess
to await a report by its special
committee investigating censure
charges against Sen. McCarthy (R-
Wis). That's exclusively a Senate
problem, and won't keep the House
in session.
U.S. Requests
Russian Word
On Atom Pool
WASHINGTON (R) - Secretary
of State Dulles said Tuesday Rus-
sia has been requested to give
a final yes-or-no answer on wheth-
er it will join the United States
in setting up a pool of atomic ma-
terials for "life-giving purposes"
throughout the world.
Dulles disclosed this latest move
by the United States at a news
conference where he assailed Rus-
sia's attitude, expressed in an
April 27 note, as "99 per cent neg-
"We have in substance asked the
Soviets whether they wish it to be
treated as 100 per cent negative,"
he said.
Russia's refusal to accept the
plan first proposed by Eisenhower
last Dec. 8 will not kill the project,
he said. The United States is now
going ahead, expecting a final So-
viet turndown, to draft a program
which other countries will be asked
to support.
The plar. will be open, he said,
both to nations which can contrib-
ute fissionable materials to such
a pool and to those "have not

the Russians. He remarked that
the UN has been a great asset to
them and a great detriment to us.

Ikeda yesterday told a Tokyo news
conference that because of the
way problems in Red China and
Indochina were handled by the
U.S., the American "roll back

Ikeda, who is secretary-general
of the ruling Liberal party

French Head

PARIS (P-The French National
Assembly gave Premier Pierre
Mendes-France two rousing votes
of confidence on major issues
Tuesday. One approved his sweep-

granted him a postponement of de-

On the economic and financial
reform program, in which Mendes-

Winter wheat, on the other hand,

world's only remaining active war
officially came to a halt Wednes-

Slide Scale
Support Wins
Final Vote
821/2-90% Parity
Under New Bill
WASHINGTON(M - President
Eisenhower won flexible authority
to tackle the vast farm surplus
problem last night as the Senate
passed the farm bill calling for
a sliding scale of price supports
ranging from 82 to 90 per cent
of parity.
The vote on the omnibus agri-
cultural measure containing the
new price support provisions was

However, there were no differ-
ences between the two bodies on
the key issue of giving the Presi-
dent flexible powers to vary price
supports on the so-called basic
crops. Both voted for a scale of
821/ to 90 next year instead of the
present mandatory props of 90 per
cent of parity.
This did not give Eisenhower
and Secretary of Agriculture Ben-
son all the leeway they asked--
their original proposal was for a
range of 75 to 90.But administra-
tion men expressed jubilation that
the principle of flexibility was es-
tablished after a hectic battle.
The administration argues that
the way to tackle the problem
which has piled up large surpluses
in government hands is to reduce
price floors when crops are large,
in order to spur consumption, and
to raise them in times of scarcity,
to encourage production.
Before last night's final vote,
backers of the Eisenhower pro-
gram hung up another in a series
of preliminary victories that have
characterized the struggle in the
last few days.

Hoover Says

WEST BRANCH, Iowa ()-For-

said Tuesday that presidential
"misuse of power" during the 20-
year tenure of the Democrats as-
sisted the Soviets, damaged the
United States, and contributed to
the enslavement of millions.
These unrestrained presidential
actions, he said, have resulted In

Hoover made the statement in

He came home for the event,

feature is the gleaming white, two-

Thousands of Iowans crowded

sunny, breezy weather on the 28
acres of lawn that now surround
