Eden Sees
'New Era'
From Visit
Calls Bulganin's
Trip 'Important'
LONDON ()-Prime Minister
Anthony Eden declared last night
"a new era" in East-West rela-
tions could be opened up by the
visit to Britain next spring of So-
viet Premier Bulganin and Com-
munist party leader Krushehev.
In a television report to the na-
tion on the Geneva summit talks,
Eden said the scheduled visit
would be "an immensely impor-
tant event."
"This will be the first time that
the leading minister of the Soviet
Union, Bulganin, will be visiting
a western land," he added.
Hopes for Valuable Discussion
"I hope, I am sure, valuable dis-
cussion will result. Quite apart
from politics I think that as the
otftcome of this meeting wve can
reasonably hope for a further
growth of personal contact to
which personally I attach consid-
erable importance."
The prime minister said the
summit meeting ha dnot produced
any "call for easy optimism, but
there is a relaxation of tension
due to the fact that all were
agreed on what they wanted to
Eden made his report as the na-
tion was caught up in a popular
upsurge of relief and enthusiasm
over easing of world tensions.

B retton Says Chancellor
Under Pressure in Talks
Asked whether Germany's Konrad Adenauer will go beyond mere
formalities in his coming negotiations with Moscow, Prof. Henry L.
Bretton of the political science department said, "The pressure on
Adenauer to negotiate a unification now is great, because the Soviets
have demonstrated as far as the German public is concerned
that they are not weak enough to be coerced."
Prof. Bretton continued, "Russia's chief bargaining power in the
negotiations will be, of course, her

FitzGerald pointed out the fact

FitzGerald noted that when the
government does release informa-'

Nevada tests, facts are sketchy and
arouse only brief interest.
Although the destructive power
of nuclear weapons is constantly
widened and is expected in increase

Civil Defense officials are not dis-
couraged. FitzGerald said the
problem was being taken into con-
sideration and could be solved
by broadening the evacuation area
in relation to the bombs destruc-

Citing the need for more public
education in self-protection, Fitz-
Gerald revealed that in an emer-
gency it would be impossible to
provide shelters for the entire com-
munity. "It is imperative that
people learn to care for them-

tion is getting stronger, and his
coalition is having difficulties, it
all adds up to the strength of the
Soviet position," he said.
"However, Chancellor Adenauer
will not go to the conference un-
armed," Prof. Bretton added. "He
can demand conditions for unifi-
cation which are reasonable and
yet unacceptable to Russia." Prof.
Bretton cited free elections and all
they imply as an example.
This, the specialist on German
politics said, would gather the
power of free world public opinion
to his side. "Adenauer could also
threaten to further integrate West
Germany into the Western alli-
ance," he suggested.

negotiations between Adenauer
and Russia on the forthcoming Big

Saline Mill Boasts Long, iHistoric Past

Bulgaria Accepts Blame
Bulgaria admitted yesterday
hours after the Constellation fell
blazing near the Greek frontier
- that its antiaircraft gunners
shot down the plane and none
aboard lived through the crash.
It expressed "deep regret" and
promised a full inquiry by a min-
isterial commission.
But an Israeli spokesman said
Bulgaria has refused to admit a
six-man commission from Israel
which proposed to conduct an on-
the-spot investigation of its own.
A Bulgarian statement broadcast
by Radio Sofia said the Constella-
tion had strayed off course for
100 miles over Bulgaria, veering far ,
eastward from its normal route
over Yugoslavia.
"The antiaircraft defense was
unable to identify the plane and,
after a few warnings, fired, as a
result of which the plane crashed
in the area north of the town of
Petrich," the statement said.

Playgoers availing themselves of the theatrical facilities offered
by the Saline Mill Theatre summer stock company may be surprised
to learn that the Mill has a fascinating and very old history.
Built in 1845 by Schuyler Haywood, the mill was originally to
be found in a small community known as Schuylerville- or Barnegat,
after Haywood's home at Barnegat, N.J. Initially, it was larger than
Saline and had a blacksmith, weaver, cooper, doctor, lawyer and
general store.
The mill, in operation often 12 to 18 hours each day, turned out
as many as 125 barrels of flour.
A later owner, replaced the old wheel used for grinding with an
electric machine, but the mill was on its way to extinction as a cen-
ter for flour making. Still running in 1927, it soon stood idle.
Henry Ford Enters
In 1935, Henry Ford, interested in restoring historic sites and,
setting up experimental industries throughout the state, purchased
the building. He rebuilt the interior completely, adding attractive
panelling. Much of the Ford machinery still stands in the mill today.
One of Ford's earliest experiments was with the soybean, and
