French Speed
Plans to Meet
Red Offensive
Viet Minh Pushing
Toward Delta Area
For Next Attack
By th* Associated Pratt
HANOI, Indo-China, June I.
The French speeded defense
plans in the Choben Valley to
day as speculation spread that
four Viet Minh divisions knifing
toward the Red River delta from
Dien Bien Phu planned to hit
that sector first.
For the past week the French
have been mopping up shadow
patrols infiltrating into the area
40 miles southwest of Hanoi.
Some French sources estimated
the enemy’s main striking force
could reach the valley on the
Black River in about four weeks.
French army sources in Sai
gon said a fifth rebel division
which took part in the Dien Bien
Phu capture—the 351st Artillery
—already has reached its base 45
miles northwest of Hanoi.
The other four divisions—3o4,
312, 308 and 316—are moving
along a mountain route which
the French are bombing daily
with American-supplied B-265,
Bearcats and Corsair fighter
planes.
These units are expected to
reach their bases in about a week.
Mop-Up Continues.
The late Marshal Jean de j
Lattre de Tassigny captured
Choben along with Hoa Binh to
the north in his last offensive in
November, 1951. The French
pulled out of Hao Binh in Feb
ruary, 1952, after inflicting more
than 10,000 casualties on the
rebels.
The French continued other
mop-up operations inside the
delta. Yesterday they reported
52 Viet Minh killed and 16 cap
tured in scattered action.
French Union armor and in
fantry, operating under heavy
air cover, routed rebel patrols
from a wide area in the Phu Ly
sector 30 miles south of Hanoi.
French fighters and bombers
also went to the aid of the Chonoi
outpost near Hung Yen, 30 miles
southeast of Hanoi, where a
third big rebel assault was beat
en off.
U. S. May Start Airlift.
Authoritative military sources
In Saigon said the United States
may start another big Globe
master airlift soon to help meet
the threat of a rebel offensive
against the delta.
These sources said the big
planes would fly a mobile group
of three battalions—some 2,100
men—from bases in North Afri
ca to the fighting front.
The United States Air Force
flew in French military units
from France during the siege of
Dien Bien Phu.
At Dien Bien Phu, rebel lead
ers blocked the scheduled evacu
ation yesterday of 27 French
doctors and medical corpsmen
from the fallen fortress. French
army headquarters said the
captors refused to let the men
be flown out because the colonel
sent along in charge was not
properly accredited.
The French delegation at Ge
neva said yesterday the French
released 575 Viet Minh wounded
Saturday to the rebel command.
No details were given.
Yoshida Is Due Here
For Visit Next Week
Japanese Prime Minister Yo
shida, it was learned today, will

for an official visit geared to
possible new American economic
aid for Japan.

Knowland Proposal
On Public Housing
Offers G.O.P. Chance
Compromise Amendment
Calls for 35,000 Units
Annually for Four Years
By J. A. O'Leary
Senate Republican Leader
Knowland of California today
suggested a compromise public
housing proposal that would en
able President Eisenhower to
carry out his program of 35,000
units a year for four years.
Senator Knowland said he
would vote for such an amend
ment and indicated Republicans
will try to have it adopted in
place of the Banking Committee
amendment, which would rein
state the 1949 public housing
law. Under that law about 600,-
000 units would be possible, in
stead of the 140,000 called for
in the Eisenhower program.
Republicans May Score.
This compromise may enable
the Republicans to score a vic
tory over Senator Maybank,
Democrat, of South Carolina,
who will move to strike out the
public housing section of the
1954 housing bill.
Although Senator Maybank
took the lead in having public
housing restored to the bill in
committee 10 days ago, he re
versed his position after the Su
preme Court in effect upheld a
California decision banning seg
regation in public housing
projects.
The announcement by Sena
tor Knowland of the compromise
came as Republican leaders
called a party conference for to
morrow morning to see where
they stand on the housing bill.
G. O. P. Has Opportunity.
Since the segregation issue is
likely to cause a split temporarily
in the united front the Demo
crats have been achieving in the
Senate recently, the public hous
ing fight gives the Republicans
a chance to make political hay
in big Northern cities in this
election year. This opportunity
depends, however, on the ability
of the G. O. P. to muster enough
Republican support to save the
public housing program.
The party conference tomor
row will enable Republican lead
ers to get a line on their chances
of putting through the substi
tute.

★ ★ WASHINGTON, D. C., TUESDAY, JUNE 1, 1954—FORTY-SIX PAGES.
Evening Star Summer Camp
Fund will help make sure that
a full quota of kids get the
chance to have fun at camp.
There are children in Wash
ington who don’t get enough
to eat. There are some who
don’t know what it is to sit
down to a full cooked meal.
To them, breakfast, lunch and
dinner alike consist of some
thing handed them between
two slices of bread. Or what
ever they buy themselves at
the corner store.
There are children who live
in ugly overcrowded homes,
where there are no modern
facilities; who despite their
youth must take on the care
of even younger children; who
can’t have toys of their own;
who have never had a vaca
tion.
For these children, your gen
erosity can provide a new
slant on life. They will know
the novelty of a good night’s
sleep in a clean and airy place.
They will have regular meals
designed to satisfy big appe
tites.
They will have the fun of
learning and playing games
just for fun. They will be in
dividual persons at camp, liv
ing away from home with other
children. They will make new
friends, and learn good rules
of community living.
The new knowledge and
pleasant memories from be
ing at camp will go home
with them, along with health
ier bodies.
Prince William Forest Park
is run by rangers of the Na
tional Park Service. The
camps are managed by the
Summer Outings Committee,
a Community Chest-sponsored
agency
The committee works with
settlement houses, hospitals,
orphanages and other private
and public agencies in select
ing children who should get
a chance to go to camp.
The generosity of Star
readers will determine how
many can go.
Proceeds from The Star’s

fund.

Colonial Beach Fire
Razes 'Ghost House'
By a Staff Correspondent of The Star
COLONIAL BEACH, Va., June
I.—A spectacular blaze whipped
by high winds for three hours
destroyed the West Moreland
Rooming House here early today.
The fire burned out the two
story, 20-room, frame house,
known to vacationers as the
“Ghost House.”
Six firemen were treated for
cuts and burns. None was in
jured critically.
Fire Chief Earl Tate of Colo
nial Beach described the blaze
as “the most stubborn” firemen
had encountered in the Colonial
Beach area. High winds off the
Potomac River made fire fighting
difficult, the chief said.
Mrs. R. F. Ford, owner of the
establishment, estimated the
damage at $40,000. She said the
building was only “partially”
covered by insurance.
High Holiday Traffic Toll
Distresses Eisenhower
By th* Associated Press
President Eisenhower today
expressed distress over the “very
high highway fatalities” on the
Memorial Day week end and said
something could be done about
it if the Nation puts its mind
to the problem.
The President made the com
ment in congratulating Gomer

W. Bailey of Denver, Colo., the
trucking industry’s “driver of the
year.”
Undersecretary of Commerce
Robert B. Murray, jr., a member
of the committee that picked Mr.
Bailey for the award, said the
President emphasized his con
cern by saying more persons
were killed on the highways each
year than the total number of
Americans who met death in
Korea.
The Chief Executive said Mr.
Bailey followed a good rule in
not taking chances and “watch
ing the other fellow.” He cited
his own chauffeur, Dick Flohr,
as the “safest kind” of driver
who always gets him where he
wants to go but “never bluffs
because Muffing doesn’t pay.”
Molotov Brings
New Orders to
Geneva Talks
Flies Back From
Sudden, Two-Day
Trip to Moscow
By th* Associated Pratt
GENEVA, June l. —• Soviet
Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov
returned to the Far Eastern con
ference today after a sudden
two-day trip back to Moscow for
consultations.
Three transport planes re
turned Mr. Molotov and his
party from the Soviet capital.
A bulletproof limousine whisked
the Russian diplomatic chief to
his villa immediately after his
arrival.
Mr. Molotov went nome un
expectedly Sunday, telling sev
eral of the Western delegation
chiefs he would return today.
Western observers agreed he
had*gone back to the Kremlin to
report to Soviet Premier Georgi
M. Malenkov and his associates
on the talks thus far and to dis
cuss the strategy the Soviets will
pursue in the future negotiations
on Indo-China.
Debating Procedure.
These sources believe the Com
munists now are debating
whether to try to prolong the
negotiations for an Indo-China
armistice in order to produce a
duplicate of the two-year-long
Korean military talks at Pan
munjom, or whether to seek a
halt as soon as possible to the
fighting in the Far East.
Aside from Mr. Molotov’s re
turn, the chief event anticipated
at the conference today was a
meeting of French and Viet
Minh representatives called to
arrange for the opening of mili
tary discussions on armistice
terms later this week.
The nine-party conference on
Indo-China was in recess for a
day after getting snarled yester
day over Communist proposals
for a “neutral” commission to
police any truce that may be
achieved. The conference debate
was scheduled to resume tomor
row at another secret session.
The delegates utilized the re
cess today for private confer
ence with their allies.
Eden to See Chou.
British Foreign Secretary An
thony Eden arranged to see Red
China’s Chou En-lai tonight in
an effort to find a compromise
on the crucial issue of ceaSe-flre
supervision.
Continuing in his role as me
diator, Mr. Eden invited the Chi
nese Communist Premier-Foreign
Minister to dinner.
United States Undersecretary
of State Walter Bedell Smith
and French Foreign Minister
Georges Bidault called on Mr.
Eden, apparently to discuss what
he would say to Mr. Chou at
tonight’s meeting.
The French-Viet Minh meet
ing today was called to work
out preliminary details of ne
gotiations—expected to begin
Thursday—on the question of
zones in which the rival forces
would assemble if and when *
cease-fire is affected.
In the subsequent, talks Col.
Jules Fleurant is to represent
France and Ta Uang Buu, Viet
Minh vice minister of defense,
will attend for the Reds.
New Difficulties Arise.
New difficulties over the cease
fire question arose yesterday
when the full Indo-China con
ference came to grips Jor the
first time with the problem of
policing an armistice.
The Communists proposed es
tablishment of a Korea-type
police body—part Communist,
the rest non-Red—for Indo-
China. The Soviet Union nomi
nated Communist Poland and
Czechoslovakia, along with In
dia and Pakistan. The West
quickly objected, charging that
the Korean Neutral Nations
Supervisory Commission had
failed to work because of vetoes
by its Communist members.
As the deadlock on the Ko
rean question continued, Gen.
Smith and South Korean For
eign Minister Pyun Yung Tai
conferred today on the West’s
strategy in the stalled negotia
tions.
Informed sources said they
discussed the possibility of hold
ing secret sessions for a final ef
fort to break the deadlock over
rival Red and non-Communist
proposals for unification of the
peninsula.

Press Queries on McCarthy
Facing Eisenhower Tomorrow
He May Be Asked Who Was His Target
In Speech Hitting at 'Demagogues'
By Garnett D. Horner
President Eisenhower has sched
uled a news conference for to
morrow that may bring him into
direct conflict with Senator Mc-
Carthy.
It will be the first time the
President has faced questioning
Text of President Eisenhower's Address
at Columbia. Page A-4
by reporters in two weeks, during
which time his administration’s
clash with the Wisconsin Repub
lican has come to a head over
the issue of Government em
ployes feeding secret informa
tion to the Senator.
The President, so far involved
only indirectly in the clash, cer
tainly will be asked to expound
his views directly. He previously
has refused to engage in per
sonalities in asserting principles
on which he and Senator Mc-
Carthy are in conflict.
Calls No Names.
Gen. Eisenhower stuck to this
rule of calling no names in a
speech at New York last night in
which he hit at “demagogues
thirsty for personal power and
public notice” and warned that
no one should be allowed to
cause division within America on
how to fight communism.
The President mentioned no
names in denouncing “would-be
censors and regulators” and
those who “divert our attention
from the main battle” in oppos
ing communism—something on
which he said Americans really
would like to be united above
anything else.
He may be asked tomorrow to
say whether he was aiming those
remarks at Senator McCarthy.
He also undoubtedly jvijL
asked to expound on his views
about Senator McCarthy’s de
fiance of an administration
warning against trying to in
duce Government workers to
provide him with secret informa
tion in violation of presidential
directives.
Usurpation Charged.
The President last week ap
proved a statement by Attorney
General Brownell which, in ef
fect, accused Senator McCarthy
of trying to usurp executive re
sponsibility and set himself
“above the laws of our land” by
inviting Government employes to
feed him secret information in
violation of presidential direc
tives.
Calling for “more knowledge
and intellect and less prejudice
and passion,” the President told
a dinner meeting high lighting
the 200th anniversary of the
founding of Columbia University
Hawaii Volcano in Action;
10,000 See Spectacular Show
ty tho Associated Press
HONOLULU, June I.—Ha
waii’s huge Kilauea crater
spewed an estimated 10 million
cubic yards of fiery lava into the
air in its most spectacular erup
tion of the century yesterday,
and thousands of sightseers
flocked to watch the show.
An estimated 10,000 came by
plane, car and on foot, loaded
down with cameras and picnic
lunches to watch the island’s
drive-in volcano in action.
Automobiles crawled bumper
to bumper down the slopes of
Kilauea to the floor of the vast
crater. A parking lot on the
edge of the Halaemaumau fire
pits was filled to overflowing with
about 500 cars from morning
into the night.

)
that a crusade of truth is needed
both at home and abroad.”
The speech was a major state
ment of the President’s views on
how communism should be com
batted. His voice grew thick with
emotion when he referred to
“demagogues” and “division.”
Those parts of his speech were
thunderously applauded
The televised and broadcast
speech was heard by some 1,800
alumni, faculty members and
friends of Columbia University
who jammed the ballroom of the
Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and an
other 400 who overflowed into
an adjoining dining room. A
score of college presidents were
in the audience.
Warn* on Attacks.
It was a homecoming of sorts
for Gen. Eiserihower wno was
Columbia's president from 1948
until shortly before his inaugu
ration last year. Applause inter
rupted the 30-minute speech 21
times.
The President cautioned
against the way Communists
“ceaselessly attack our social,
industrial, educational and spir
itual institutions, and encourage
every type of internecine strug
gle of whatever kind.” Then he
declared:
“Easy it is to become an un
witting ally or tool of such con
niving. For example, there is
no other subject or purpose in
which Americans are so com
pletely united as in their oppo
sition to communism. Yet is
there any other subject that
seems, at this moment, to be the
cause of so much division among
us as does the matter of defend
ing our freedoms from Commu
nist subversion?
“To this problem we must ap
ply more knowledge and intel
•lPEW 6®Vsirejudice and emo
tion. We must not permit any
one to inspire quarrels that
eventually find good citizens bit
terly opposed to other good citi
zens, when basically all would
like to be joined in effective op
position to communism.”

floor
Before it exploded at 4:04 a.m.
yesterday the first pit was 460
feet deep. The first four hours
of violent eruption raised the
level of the floor 50 feet.
A wall of flaming lava that
shot out in fountains from a
half-mile fissure on the crater
floor had subsided by noon. As
it cooled, the lava formed a saw
toothed ridge across the crater
floor 25 feet high and 30 feet

Souvenir hunters chipped
chunks of hot lava from the cool

acrid fumes.
The eruption was safely con
tained within the huge crater.
