BANDUNG Continued From First Page Minister Mohammed AJi rallied at the conference plenary ses sion this morning to the anti- Red banner raised yesterday by Iraqui Foreign Minister Fadhil Jamali. Refrain From Applause Both Mr. Chou and Indian Prime Minister Nehru noticeably refrained from joining in the applause—largest so far of the conference—which followed Gen. Romulos speech. Mr. Nehru had hoped the conference would avoid the most controversial aspects of the East-West conflict. The Philippine delegation chief warned the delegates “not to surrender blindly to a new super barbarism, a new super-im perialism, a new super-power.” Gen. Romulo also paid pointed and specific tribute to the United States and his nation's long association with it. The Pakistan Prime Minister, whose government receives United States military aid and is a member of the Western bucked Turkish-Pakistani alli ance, also avoided mentioning communism by name. But he warned the Asian and African nations to “be careful not to open the door to new and more insidious forms of imperialism that masquerade in the guise of liberation.” Seeks Harmony Ceylon's anti- Communist Prime Minister, Sir John Ko telawala, meanwhile, launched an effort to prevent a conference split over the Communist issue. Sir John, one of the five “Co lombo" premiers who called the conference, arranged a private meeting tomorrow with Mr. Chou. Mr. Jamali and the four other sponsoring government chiefs. They are Mr. Nehru. Mr. Ah, U Nu of Burma and Ali Sas troamidjojo of Indonesia. The Arab nations continued their attacks on Israel today, with Foreign Minister Sayyed Wahid-Salah of Jordan and Le banese Prime Minister Sami Solli terming the creation of the Jewish state a violation of the human rights of Palestinian Arabs who had been driven from their homes. Libya's Prime Minister Mus tafa ben Halim also told the con ference the Palestine question was “one of the most pressing problems before our conference.” TODATS WEATHER REPORT District and vicinity—Cloudy tonight with low near 57.

Court Takes Up Peters Security Case Today By the Associated Tress The Supreme Court takes up today the question of whether i the Government can legally fire an employe on loyalty grounds while keeping secret his accusers. Central figure in the case is Dr. John Punnett Peters, pro fessor of medicine at Yale Uni versity. He contends his con i stitutional rights were violated by not being allowed to confront | and cross-examine his accusers. Dr. Peters was fired in May, j 1953. as an occasional consultant ito the United States Public I Health Service after a three member hearing panel found a “reasonable doubt” as to his loyalty. He denied he had ever been a Communist and declared his loyalty to the United States. Brownell Concerned Attorney General Brownell has expressed concern that sources of information "might well dry up" if the Government had to disclose them in loyalty cases. The Supreme Court was ex pected to call the Peters case for argument this afternoon in its first look in four years at key procedures of the Federal loyal ty-security program. The last time it considered the matter it divided 4-4 in uphold ! ing the security risk firing of Dorothy Bailey from the United States Employment Service. The court's bnet announce ment in the Bailey case merely reported the 4-4 vote and said Justice Clark. who had been At torney General when the case originated, took no part. The same Washington lawyers who represented Miss Bailey are handling the Peters case. Thur man Arnold, a former Assistant Attorney General and a former judge of the United States Court of Appeals here, is chief counsel. Right Unquestioned Dr. Peters' attorneys do not question the Government's right to discharge employes “without a fair hearing" when other than loyalty grounds are involved. But In the Peters case, they argue, the executive depart ment was not "making an ordi nary managerial judgment that ’ Wind—Southwest or west 18- ' 27 miles per hour this evening ’ with local squalls possible.

Romulo in a speech before the 1 delegates from 29 nations today. “It is one of our heaviest re sponsibilities that we of Asia and Africa have.” said the chief ; delegate ' from the Philippines, , “not to fall ourselves into the , racist trap. “We will do this if we respond , to the white man’s prejudice ■ against us as nonwhites with s prejudice against the w hites sim r ply because they are w-hite. . . . “There is no more dangerous or Immoral or absurd idea than , the idea of any kind of policy ; grouping based on color as such. • This would, In the deepest sense, ■ mean giving up all human free dom in our time.” The loudest ovation of the con ’ ference was accorded Romulo 1 when he finished speaking, but 1 he got no recognition from Red China’s Premier Chou En-lai ; and India's Prime Minister Nehru. “In almost all Western lands. ; and especially in the United States, an internal struggle [ against racism and all its mani : festations has been going on ’ steadily and victoriously,” Gen. Romulo said. [ Auxiliary to Meet t The Women's Auxiliary of the i Arlington Presbyterian Church will meet at 10:30 a.m. tomor > row at the Church. Arlington - School Supt. T.

Its efforts have greatly benefited commercial aviation as well as military air development, and have resulted in the United States’ being far ahead of any country in the world in aero nautics. With a staff of 7,500 employes and an annual budget of ssl million, the NACA does a tre- j mendous job in helping keep j America out in front in this aii powered age. It also has played a large role in making American commercial aviation the greatest in the world. As is the case with other Federal research and scientific agencies, the NACA is having a lot of difficulties these days at trading and retaining top-cali ber personnel The main reason ; is that private industry generally j pays more money for these jobs, i Consequently, NACA not only isj having a tough time recruiting I the most outstanding college students, but is losing some of its top scientists, engineers, tech nicians and research men. Fortunately, however, the NACA still has a devoted corps of top-notch employes. NACA officials say it is a fine tribute to the devotion, loyalty and pa triotism of their key personnel that keeps so many on the job, despite more attractive offers from private industry . The NACA, however, realizes that family and financial con siderations often influence an employe’s final decision. That's why it is hopeful that the salaries tor these jobs will be gradually increased. During World War 11. the then Secretary of Navy Frank Knox had this to say about the Navy’s decisive victories in the air: “The Navy's famous fighters— I the Corsair, Wildcat, and Hell cat—arc possible only because they were based on fundamentals developed by the NACA. All of them use NACA wing sections, NACA cooling methods. NACA high-lift devices. The great sea victories that have broken Ja pan's expanding grip in the Paci fic would not have been possible without the contributions of the NACA.” The NACA is headed by Dr Hugh L. Dryden, director, an outstanding Government career scientist who has been in the Federal service for 36 years. Dr. John F. Victory, the NACA’s ex ecutive secretary, has been there since 1915 and has done an ex cellent job. Strong praise for the NACA was voiced on the House floor the other day on the occasion of its 40th birthday. Among those extolling the agency were Rep resentatives Thomas, Democrat, of Texas, who is chairman of the House Appropriations subcom mittee handling its funds; Robe son, Democrat, of Virginia: Gub ser, Republican, of California, and Minshall, Republican, of Ohio. They all cited the out standing work being done at NACA laboratories at Langley Field. Va., Ames in California and Lewis in Ohio. Mr. Minshall declared: “All America can be proud of the SAVE BY MAIL Because ... • Quick, convenient, and confidential • 24-h our service • No waiting in line • No transportation problem regardless oi weather or location • No delay when out oi town on business or pleasure.

April 19 f/P>.—One man was killed and six persons including four firemen, were in jured yesterday in an extra alarm fire which destroyed a West Side hotel The Red Cross said two men were unaccounted for but fire men delayed further search of the ruins because of the danger of falling debris. The fire swept through the four-story Humboldt Paik Hotel on North avenue and spread to two other buildings. About 50 guests in the hotel fled into the street, many escaping down CrC escapes. The dead man, Roger Hack, 45, was trapped in his third-floor room. Mr. Hack's brother, Arthur, and George Wyman, were re ported unaccounted for by Red Cross workers. She Hears Through Her Spectacles!
