Gene Says Yes, Aly Silent On Wedding Plans Actress Says She’ll Be A Housewife For The Prince ROSARITO BEACH, Baja Cali fornia, Mexico UFb- Gene Tierney, here for a week’s respite from her movie labors, says she hopes to marry Aly Khan within six months, in France. Said Aly, “I never discuss per sonal affairs. ” In any event, Miss Tierney has switched from the "friendship fin ger” to the engagement finger the big diamond ring Aly gave her some time ago. She said he pro posed 18 months ago, "somewhere in Europe.” "I knew I loved him a month after we met,” said the actress, "but he loved me before that time.” Aly, describing his visit as "a vacation trip,” took up residence at the Rosarito Beach Hotel last Saturday. Miss Tierney and her mother, Mrs. Belle Tierney, ar rived with him, from Mexico City. Aly had flown there from Montreal and Paris, Gene and her mother from Hollywood. The Moslem prince, 42, regis tered as "Melvin Taylor and party.” Sunday, Miss Tierney, 33, had to return to California for movie work. She came back here yesterday at 4 a.m. After a noon-hour breakfast, she and the prince met the press at the swimming pool of this resort hostelry 17 miles south of the border. Miss Tierney, an Episcopalian, •aid she anticipated no religious difficulties in marriage to a Mo hammedan. She also said there was no basis for reports that Aly’s father, the Aga Khan, opposes the match. Asked what she would be called if she married Aly, Miss Tierney replied: "Just a housewife.” Douglas Urges UJS. Aid In Indochina WASHINGTON UMSen. Douglas (D-lll) asserted today the United States ought to “get ready for the worst” by enlisting forces of Paci fic free nations to fight Commu nists in Indochina if they are needed. Douglas, a Marine officer in World War 11, called for support of President Eisenhower and Sec retary of State Dulles in seeking what Dulles called “united action” to prevent Communist conquest in Southeast Asia. “I do not know what measures this administration plans,” Douglas said in a speech prepared for the Senate. “I do not know what meas ures will prove to be necessary. “I do not know what' attitude the Republican party in Congress will take toward supporting the Presi dent. But reading the record against the gravity of the secre tary's words, I have my mis givings.” Dulles’ said in a nationally tele vised speech Monday night that Contmunist control of Southeast Asia would be "a great threat” to the free world and that: “The United States feels that that possibility should not be pas sively accepted but should be met by united action.” Dulles gave no hint of what form such action might take, and in formed officials said it may hinge largely on responses of the British, French and other governments. It seems certain that a specific American objective is the develop ment of a solid front among the Allied powers in the forthcoming Asian peace negotiations at Geneva. The State Department said the British and French ambassadors had been informed of the Dulles speech in advance of delivery, but that it did not reflect the views of all three governments. In his prepared speech, Sen. Douglas proposed that the Presi dent act immediately to “enlist the support and cooperation of Austra lia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Ja pan, the Philippines and other Far East nations in resisting ag gression.” "I believe there should be an Immediate assignment of military functions and allotment of forces to be supplied if worst comes to worst,” he said. India’s ambassador, G. L. Mehta, •aid after a conference with Dulles yesterday he does not believe "united action” necessarily means military action. Moat people find that their hear ing is less keen immediately after meals. The female bullfrog is slightly larger than the male and usually trim*.

Salton stall (R-Mass) said today he still has "full confidence” in the Eisen hower defense program, which Senate Democrats attacked in broadside fashion yesterday. "We are taking a calculated risk,” said Saltonstall, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. "Most of the criticism simply results from a difference in viewpoints.” "This administration is building its air power and other forces in an orderly way best calculated for the long pull we must face,” he said in an interview. “Some be lieve we should be aiming at a target date or crisis, such as to morrow or a year from tomorrow.” The Democratic attack was led by Sen. Symington (D-Mo), who was secretary of the Air Force under former President Truman. The Missourian accused present Pentagon chiefs of "foot dragging” on defense and of not telling the people or Congress the truth about Soviet air power and the danger of possible atomic and hydrogen attacks. Reinforced by Sens. Jackson (D-Wash), Mansfield (D-Mont), Maybank (D-SC) and Morse (Ind ore), Symington contended that a five-billion-dollar cutback in Air Force funds last year weakened this nation’s defenses. He also charged that the "new look” de fense concept has resulted in a two-year setback in the airpower buildup. But Saltonstall and Sen. Fergu son (R-Mich) contended that this country has greatly expanded its military might, including air pow er, under the Eisenhower adminis tration and that present budgets are ample. One of the angriest exchanges came when Symington said he is able to get "more intelligence” from newspapers and magazines than from testimony by top Penta gon leaders. Saltonstall disputed this, saying every question had been answered at 11 secret briefings of the com mittee this year. Man Is Killed, Wife Wounded In Home Battle MIAMI UR —A father was killed and his wife wounded last night while two of their four children watched their struggle for posses sion of a kitchen knife. Joseph William Tuscher, 34, died of a stab- wound in the heart and his wife, Helen, 39, was admitted to Dade County Hospital for treat ment of cuts on her arms. Deputies John P. Berdeaux and James Mecouch said Tuscher ap parently was stabbed to death as he struggled with his wife for the knife. No charges were filed against her pending further inves tigation. The couple’s two youngest chil dren, Danny, 5, and Bryan, 4, slept in a bedroom while Lewis, 12, and Jerry 9, apparently ran from other rooms to see the struggle, accord ing to the deputies. Lewis fled to a neighbor’s house where he shout ed, "Come quick. W’e need help.” The neighbor, Mrs. Ruth Jar rett, went to the home to find Tuscher dead on the floor and Mrs. Tuscher sprawled nearby, bleeding from several cuts.

Tugboats Are Back At Work In New York By JOHN BAUSMAN NEW YORK (£)—Tugboats were back at work in New York harbor today following the government’s first success in efforts to break up the 27-day dock strike. Since last week tugs had refused to maneuver ships in sympathy with a strike called by the Inter national Longshoremen’s Assn. (ILA). The walkout flared up after six months of bitter competition between the independent union and the AFL-ILA for the right to rep resent dock workers. The tugs returned to work yes terday after the National Labor Relations Board got a federal court order directing the ILA to stop picketing tugboats and to see that their ILA crews went back to work. The court ruled the tug stoppage violated a Taft-Hartley law ban against secondary boycotts. The pier strike spread to dock side warehouses yesterday when the ILA posted pickets outside the buildings. However, only about half the port’s warehouses were picketed t and operators of those struck were expected to apply for a court order that would quickly end the walkout. They would base their request on the same grounds used in the case of the tugboats. A back-to-work movement, most ly by nonstriking AFL men, con tinued yesterday. The New York- New' Jersey Waterfront Commis sion reported 4,142 men were on the job, 227 more than the day be fore. However this was still less than a quarter of the number normally employed. There were reports that the ILA was considering calling off the strike and issuing orders for its members to return to their jobs. Newspapers said the reports stemmed from the scheduling of an ILA wage scale committee met ing for tomorrow. The committee will consider an employer offer of a 10-cent-an-hour wage increase package retroactive to Oct. 1, the papers said. Reports that a settlement was brewing were denied by ILA President William V. Bradley. Meanwhile, the NLRB pressed its federal court charges of con tempt against the union, which walked out in defiance of a no strike injunction issued by the court March 4. By the end of its second day, trial of the contempt charges pro gressed yesterday as far as selec tion of a jury of seven women and five men. Two alternate jurors remained to be chosen. The NLRB is asking fines of at least $100,G20 against the union and prison terms for three officers of union locals. Corinne Calvet Is Found After Sedative Overdose WEST LOS ANGELES, Calif. UP) —Actress Corinne Calvet was found unconscious on the bathroom floor of her home early today, po lice reported. Detectives said she had taken an overdose of seda tives. Officers T. B. Ley and E. R. St. John, who listed the case as an attempted suicide, called an am bulance immediately. She was taken to a Santa Monica hospital and her stomach pumped out. Aft er she revived, she was sent home. A friend of the French actress, John Stone, told the officers he had tried to telephone Miss Calvet but was unable to arouse anyone and came to her home on Beverly Glen boulevard to see if anything was wrong. He said he awoke a maid and they found Miss Calvet. They were unable to arouse her and po lice were called. The Citizen Publishes Comics for Everyone To Read and Enjoy CIRCUIT COURT JUDGE (Continued from Page One) Caraballo’s two truck when they were legally parked. The Navy spokesman added: "In 1952 the city did an excellent job of revising the ordinances and in drawing up a City Code. Any ordinances that were omitted from that code were automatically re pealed. "Apparently,” the spokesman added, "the city police are not aware that tnere is no ordinance prohibiting the parking of cars af ter midnight.” Today's Docroo In his order today, Judge Lopez wrote that he did "hereby order, adjudge and decree that any own er of an automoble which has been impounding on the sole grounds that said automobile was found upon the streets of defendant city past midnight and-or all night during any day or any number of conse cutive days, and which automobile was in all other respects legally parked, will be awarded posses sion of said automobile by paying to the clerk of this court the sum of money which the said defendant demands as the cost of removing said automibile from the streets but not to exceed five dollars per said automobile from the streets by said clerk pending the adjuca tion of the above law suit.” The order further said that the car shall be surrendered to its own er when the owner shows a receipt signed by the clerk of the Circuit Court. Cars Being Held The Navy spokesman also said that he knew of two cars belong ing to enlisted men which were being held by Sgt. Caraballo’s gar age. Certified copies of the court or der will be served on the city and on Sgt. Carballo today, the Navy spokesman said. One of the impounded cars was parked on South Street and the other on Grinnell Street, the spokesman added. He said neither car was parked in a restricted zone and that both cars were parked legally. Petition Presented In his petition asking for an in junction to stop the City of Key West and Sgt. Carballo from tow ing away legally parked cars, Ens. Blair wrote that he believed "that the Police Department of said City of Key West, by and through its officers, agents, and employees, has upon several occasions in the past removed from the streets of said city and impounded automo bile owned by other persons and which were in all respects legally and lawfully parked upon said streets, upon the sole grounds and for the sole reason that said auto mobiles were found upon said streets after the hour of midnight.” The petition further said that two cars are being withheld from the owners by the city police and that the police have refused to surrend er the cars until the owners pay the cost of towing. Police Stand Cited "And,” added the petition, "said Police Department has advised said owners that any automobile found upon the streets of said city, after midnight is , per se, illegally parked by virtue of an ordinace of the City of Key West.” The petition said Sgt. Caraballo had removed cars from the streets "at the request of and as agent for said Police Department” on the same grounds that the cars were parked after midnight. The petition also said that the police and other city officers had "admonished the plaintiff that the aforementioned ordinance which forbids the parking of an automobile upon the streets of the City of Key West after midnight is in full force and effect.” Search of City Code Ens. Blair in his petition said he had made "a thorough, exhaus tive, and diligent search of the Code of the City of Key West, Florida, 1952, and as a result of said search” could not find an ordinance or regulation banning parking after midnight. In his petition, Ens. Blair also said he had asked the police to "disclose to him the citation, pub lication, or whereabouts of such a law” but that the Police De partment "has hitherto utterly failed, refused and neglected so to do, yet, contending steadfastly all the while that such a law, ordinance, or regulation most as suredly does exist and is in full force and effect.” The petition further states that the plaintiff alleges that no such law or ordinance exists and that he may lawfully park his car after midnight as long as it is legally parked. Impounding Illegal Ens. Blair further alleges that it is unlawful for the cops to re move or impound or otherwise molest his automobile merely be cause it is found on the streets after midnight "on any day or series of consecutive days and niehts.” The petition then cites Section 17.74 of the Code of the City of Key West requiring police to place notices of illegal parking on cars for 24 hours before they can take further action—unless the car is blocking traffic. Ens. Blair asks that the injunc tion also stipulate that the police must place notices of illegal park ing on cars —even if the car should be parked illegally—24 hours be fore the car may lawfully be re- TODAY’S STOCK MARKET NEW YORK Aircrafts domi nated early trading today in the stock market with wide gains run ning from 1 to 5 points. The remainder of the market was higher, for the fourth straight session, but in a much more sub dued manner with gains seldom passing a point. Boeing, which added 4% yester day, started today on a block of 2,000 shares up IMi at 80 and then continued to climb. Aircraft companies have been reporting excellent earnings.

Higher stocks included American Telephone, Texas Cos., Paramount Pictures, 20th Century-Fox, Ken necott Copper, and General Elec tric. STRAUSS TELLS (Continued from Page One) know—but that many discussions have been held and the result is inconclusive. There are some, he went on, apparently meaning some of his advisers, who think this indicates a change in Soviet policy and a disposition to negotate earnestly and honestly. WEBB SCORES (Continued from Page One) tions by a state auditor and a Mi ami newspaper. Webb also investigated the dis trict. "I don’t know if any wrongful things have been done down there but it is the most mismanaged operation I have ever witnessed in my life. If your business or mine was handled in that manner it would be headed for the rocks,” he told the road board. The road board has authority to approve budgets of the district be cause it will take over the highway after toll revenues have paid off the bonds which financed its con struction. The Board of Adminis tration also must give its approval to the budget because it handles the district’s bonds. More than enough money to re tire the outstanding bonds is now on hand. FILM WILL BE SHOWN (Continued from Page One) cer, we are arranging free show ings of the film, ‘The Warning Shadow,’ produced in cooperation with the National Cancer Institute. We are particularly anxious to show it to workers in industry and other company employees.” The spokesman for the society said that the cause of the sharp rise in lung cancer mortality was not known but that some research ers suspect heavy cigarette smok ing, air pollution and smog. Stud ies are now going on with the support of Hie American Cancer Society to find the answer to this problem. The film urges men over 45 to have chest x-rays twice a year. If cancer of the lung is diagnosed before symptoms appear, chan ces of cure are about 50 per cent. The present cure rate for this site of cancer is only about five per cent. moved, unless the car is blocking traffic.
