THE SUNDAY STAR Washington, D. C. SUNDAY, iVKK 13. I»S4 Laniel Is Retained As Premier Briefly Despite Vote Loss (Continued From First Page.) from Mr. Coty he will immediate ly call for another test vote in the hope of losing by absolute ma jority. If this happens he can ask the President to dissolve Par liament and hold new national elections. It is known that many members of middle-road parties favor the idea of going to the people on the great issues that face France today. One trouble with thfs scheme Is that elections must be held within 30 days after Parliament is dissolved. And that would put them right at the beginning of summer vacations when a very large proportion of French families decamp from their places of legal residence. It is feared that the only ones to profit from this would be the Communists since it appears they are the only ones to con sider politics more important than vacations. On the other hand, if Mr. Laniel’s resignation is accepted, France may face a very long crisis indeed at a time when neither France nor the rest of the free world can well afford it. As he left Elysee Palace this af ternoon, Foreign Minister Geor ges Bidault announced that in any case he will return to Ge neva Monday. But it goes with out saying that his authority to negotiate in the name of the French government will be hope lessly compromised by what happened here today. France’s Future at Stake. These are a few of the things that Mr. Coty has on his mind as he ponders his hard decision to night. And beyond them is the much broader question of France’s role on the stage of world politics. In his last-minute appeal to the assembly, Mr. Laniel went all the way. “Let us speak plainly,” he urged. “Is there a majority here for an Asiatic Munich or a ma jority to renounce the Atlantic Pact?” More oratory, perhaps than fact. Another pro-government speaker put the question more calmly: “Is this the moment,” he asked, “to create a new pow 7 er vacuum?” “Are we going to let Gen. Ely (the new commander in-chief in Indo-China) do busi ness with ministers responsible only for the conduct of current affairs? Are we to break off negotiations face our friends and allies with France's reflec tion and assure our adversaries of a diplomatic success calculable cohsequences?”v In their owti way and for Ipotr ■ own reasons France’s elected rep resentatives gave their answer today. But the final word and tm final measure on this latest free world crisis is still to come. Slums (Continued From First Page.)

I Boy, 11, Tells Police He Started Tenement Fire That Killed 7 Says Cigarette Butt Set Chicago Blaze; Described as Drinker By th# Associated Press CHI6AGO, June 12. Chief of Detectives John T. O’Malley said today that a whisky-drink ing, cigarette-smoking 11-year old boy told him he started a tenement building fire w'hich killed seven persons and injured nine. Mr. O’Malley said the boy, Marion Gregory, told him the fire started last night when he “flipped” a cigarette butt into some rubbish in a stair well. ; A father and his small son and daughter, a mother and daughter and a brother and sis ter were trapped in their fou»th floor apartments by the fast spreading flames and perished. Young Gregory previously told investigators that the fire ap-) parently was started by two men in baseball caps. The lad lived in an apart ment with his father, Lewis. j Assistant State’s Attorney Frank Ferlic said the boy told him that the start of the fire j was an accident. Several investigators said un officially there were indications that the fast-spreading flames fed on gasoline. During his questioning, Greg ory complained of a sore jaw. He was taken to the Cook County Hospital where physi- ° Still Time to Get Snapshots ‘ In The Star's Amateur Contest Every one likes to know the | s quickest way to make an easy s dollar.

Pravdi identified the alleged spies as Vladimir Constano vich Galai and Juri Alexandro vich Khramtzev. The story said Galai deserted from the Soviet army in Austria, contacted American intelligence in Vienna and was sent to a “spy school” under the name of Law rence O. Johnson. The account said Khramtzev left the Soviet sector of East Berlin, was picked up by Amer icans in the Western sector and sent to a “spy school” under the name of Gregory Vasilov. j Following completion of their training, Pravda said, the two were taken by American intelli gence authorities and smuggled into Murmansk, Soviet Arctic port.

In a speech before the National Association of Postmasters in Atlantic City, Mr. Moorse urged postal employees “not to be de ceived by false claims that the'* ( Postmaster General’s pay re . classification proposal is unfair.’-’ . i Mr. Moore’s speech was the . | first pu b1 i c . prediction by an admin [ istration offi > cial that the f Pre s i d e n t l would veto any .! postal pay bill that does not i contain the i pay reclassifi cation author » ity sought by .

Also, the 1 fate of classified employes pay ‘! raise legislation hinges directly 1 on the outcome of the postal pay : fight. Mr. Moore’s, speech also was seen as an appeal to rank-and file members of the heavily or ganized postal employe unions to overrule their leaders on the: pay issue. Most of the postal employe unions have sharply criticized the Postmaster Gen eral’s pay reclassification plan | ; as dictatorial, charging that it 1 would allow him to downgrade 1 postal employe salaries when ever he chooses. The unions also have charged it would give the Postmaster General widespread authority to engage in political patronage. Mr. Moore said he felt that Congress ultimately will approve the Postmaster General’s re classification plan. “The opposition to the Post master General’s bill has had ! the effect of postponing pay in creases for the rank and file of j postal employes,” Mr. Moore de i dared. “As a matter of fact, if the two proposals were carefully Magazine Salesman, 13, | Get 5 Years for Arson By th» Associated Press PENSACOLA, Fla., June 12. A 13-year-old magazine sales man has been sentenced to five i years in prison for arson. Judge Ernest E. Mason sen tenced Donald K. Fortune yes terday after he pleaded guilty. The State claimed he set fire to a house owned by W. K. Aid after Mr. Aid refused to buy a subscription. The boy was sentenced to the State prison farm at Raiford, but Chief Probation Officer Neil Blue said he would be trans ferred to the Apalachee correc tional institute for youthful of fenders. Mr. Blue said authorities here attempted to send him back to Texas, but Texas authorities re fused to accept him. He said the boy came from a broken home ! and his parents couldn't be lo cated. He came here with a ! magazine-selling crew. compared, I am certain it would | be found that there is very little monetary difference for the av erage postal employe. Sees Little Difference. “For example, the cost of the Postmaster General’s proposal is about $143 million, whereas the cost of the bill approved by the House committee is about S2OO million. On the average, this difference represents less than $l2O for each postal em ploye. Specifically, the only real difference between the two pro posals are a slightly higher en trance salary and additional longevity benefits for employes with more than 17 years of ser vice.” Postal employe leaders prompt ly disputed Mr. Moore's state ment, declaring that the average postal worker would get at least SIOO more from the House com mittee’s bill than under the Post master General's $250 average pay reclassification proposal. The National Association of Postmasters, before whom Mr. Moore spoke, is one of the few postal organizations supporting Mr. Summerfleld’s pay plan. Postmasters generally would get sizable increases under it. WE SALUTE NATIONAL SHRINERS HOSPITAL DAY (Jkmmce SUMMER SUITINGS—CUSTOM TAILORED ® S9O EQ.SO A “™' I Fine Tropical Worsteds, Flan- _ . .
