Fight in Lebanon
Fighting Remote from U.S. Troops;
New President May Not Be Named
BEIRUT .(A) -- Lebanesp rebels and pro-government civilians
clashed in a sharp, three-hour fight in Beirut yesterday because a
taxi failed to halt on a rebel command.
The fighting occurred in a section remote from the positions of
American troops. They reported everything quiet in the areas where
they are stationed.
On the political front, a rebel leader dealt a stiff blow to rising
hopes that peace might return to this troubled little Mideast nation

Will Meet Next Week
UNITED 'NATIONS, N.Y. ()-The Security Council is expected
to meet next week to build the foundation for a United Nations sum-
mit meeting on the Middle East crisis.
This was reported by Western sources yesterday as President
Dwight D. Eisenhower sent a note to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev
stressing that summit arrangements must be left to the Council.
These informants express belief Khrushchev will accept and the
summit meeting can open at U.N. headquarters in New York Aug. 11.

Shooting in Basta Area
The shooting involving the taxi
broke out near the rebel-held
Basta area after 20 armed rebels
ordered the vehicle carrying a
woman and a child to stop. Tle
driver kept going and the rebels
opened fire. The pro-government
civilians led by Hanna Yazbeck
returned the shots.
The woman and child in the cab
and a young man bystander were
killed. Two of Yazbeck's follow-
ers were wounded. Rebel casual-
ties were unknown.
It was the second day of skir-
mishing in Beirut and in the port
city of Tripoli.
Four Killed Thursday
Yazbeck said four of his men
were killed Thursday and anoth-

They said there now are 4,000 Ar-

permit parliament to name a pres-
ident as long as pro-Western Pres-
ident Camille Chamoun is in
power and foreign troops remain

Parliament is scheduled to meet
Thursday to name Chamoun's
successor. Hopes had increased
that a candidate acceptable to
both sides would be named, thus
ending the uprising.
A spokesman at Salam's head-
quarters said the rebel declara-
tion in itself would prevent a
quorum from attending the sched-
uled parliament meeting.

nounced yesterday. Last year's to-

Dean Sawyer said the increase
was largely due to growing recog-
nition by industry and private do-
nors of the need for graduate fel-
lowships to relieve students from
the necessity of working, and thus,
reducing the time required to ob-
tain the doctor's degree.
Also up over last year were fac-
ulty research grants, up in num-
ber from 165 to 160, and in value
from $166,000 to $250,000.

They are the same three Arab
nations invited to take part in

bate. Iraq would be present as a
member of the Council.
There had been speculation that
the Soviets might have in mind a
conference of all Arab states. U.N.
diplomats feel this would make the
conference cumbersome. It might
also lead to additional complica-
tions, such as a demand from
Israel for participation, or from
Turkey, Iran and Pakistan-mem-
bers of the Baghdad Pact.
Consults With Lodge
President Eisenhower said he
was instructing Ambassador Henry
Cabot Lodge to consult with other
Council members on the desir-
ability ofa summit meeting.
The Council is expected to be
called into session at the conclu-
sion of such consultations. .
U.N. diplomats said the Council
would make arrangements for pri-
vate meetings of the big powers
and possibly India.
The big powers would agree in
advance that no voting take place.
They would issue a summary in
the way of a report to the full
Council at the end of their talks.

WASHINGTON gp) - The Senate's majority leader said yes-

"Where are the -missiles, where are the satellites, and where are
the other devices?" Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Tex.) demanded of
Secretary of Defense Neil McElroy at a Senate hearing. The session
was held behind closed doors so that McElroy and his aides could de-
scribe a number of secret mili-

demonstrate that the nation's de-
fense buildup is moving ahead.
