South Korean government pro- ! claimed its intention today toj “restore authority" over a small; but strategic area south of the 38th Parallel which the Reds occupied while the armistice was being negotiated.

It charged the attack “was prepared for” by a North Korean buildup contrary to armistice terms “while the United States and the United Nations were preoccupied with a peace at any cost movement.” In a bitterly-worded state ment the ROK government said the Reds have again achieved superiority over ROK forces and “may feel tempted to utilize this 200 Seized in Morocco As Aftermath of Rioting CASABLANCA.

Republi can of Arizona, said today “the American people will rebut"! charges by Senator McCarthy. l Republican of Wisconsin, that; President Eisenhower offered! “friendship to tyrants and mur-j derers” at Geneva. Senator McCarthy denounced in the Senate yesterday what he termed Mr. Eisenhower's "profession of faith” in a state ment of Russian leaders that they want peace. The Wisconsin Senator. said he believes a “sell-out” to the Communists in Asia is in the making and he intends to “take the issue to the American people.” Senator Goldwater, who heads the Republican Senatorial Cam- . paign Committee and says he regards Senator McCarthy as a , G. O. P. asset, said in an inter view that “I think the Ameri can people themselves will re- 1 but Joe.” < Says People Reject Idea | Senator Qoldwater said he i doesn’t believe the people will, “buy” Senator McCarthy's con tention that the Big Four con ference at Geneva constituted a • rout for the free world forces. 1 “I think the people are pretty i well pleased with the outcome ] of the Geneva conference, even those who have some reserve- ] tions about the matter.” Sen- ( ator Goldwater said. “The peo- | pie are for peace and they be- | ; lieve we have made a start to- , ward getting it.” Senator McCarthy declared' “the Eisenhower administration has adopted every important plank of the Democratic Party’s foreign policy” and reduced the 1952 Republican platform to “a scrap of paper.” He said most Republicans “in their hearts. I think, are op posed to the President’s policies.” “But they have accepted the ; theory that they cannot return to office in 1956 without Eisen hower at the head of the ticket and they are. I am afraid, pre pared to subordinate considera- I tions of sound policy to those of political survival," he said. Bender Backs President Senator Bender, Republican, of Ohio, who accused Senator McCarthy of an "intemperate attack” on Mr. Eisenhower, said that wasn’t so as far as he is iconcerned. “I am not supporting Elsen hower today because I believe it is of political advantage.” he said “I supported the principles he stands for before I knew there was such a man.” Senator McCarthy said there is j "every reason to believe that con crete measures for appeasement were agreed upon at Geneva," despite Mr. Elsenhower's state ment that no commitments of any kind were made by the Big 'Four.

The sort of thing that Zhukov! is likely to tell the President is the sort of thing the President should hear less of, not more.” Senator McCarthy recalled! that Mr. Eisenhower assured the Nation a week ago “that there were no secret agreements at Geneva, either written or other-! wise.” “We were also led to believe that the Far Eastern situation was not discussed." he said. Eden Is Quoted "But on Wednesday Prime Minister Eden told the House of Commons that the Far East ern crisis had been discussed in the secret Big Four meet ings . . . “In the light of the State Department announcement, coming as it did right after Ge neva, of talks with the Chinese Communists on the question of a cease-fire in the Formosa Straits, it is highly probable that the President agreed with the Communists to negotiate about Quemoy and the Matsus.” “On the basis of words, and words alone,” Senator Mc- Carthy went on. “the President led the American people to be lieve that there is sufficient evi dence of Communist sincerity to , go ahead with a new policy of reconciliation and friendship. “To my mind Mr. Eisenhow er’s profession of faith in the Communists' sincerity was the most astonishing statement ever , uttered in public by a President of the United States.” No Deal, Knowland Says Senator Knowland of Califor nia. the Republican leader, re- 1 plied that he could say flatly! from the “highest sources In this! Government" that no deal was made at Geneva to turn over ; Nationalist-held offshore islands; to Communist China, as con tended by Senator McCarthy. Senator Knowland conferred with President Eisenhower today, and told reporters later that the President "reiterated and in dorsed" the Knowland statement that “no deal and no trade" had been made for release of the American prisoners. Senator Knowland also said Mr. Eisenhower reassured him of the accuracy of his statement that the United States had made no deal at the Geneva Big Four conference to "sell out" the Chi nese Nationalists or other allies in the Far East. Senator Mundt. Republican of South Dakota, who often has supported Senator McCarthy in the past, said he considers the Geneva meeting “a success.” Senator Potter. Republican, of Michigan, said he agreed with Senator Knowland and Senator Mundt. Democrats sat ailently while the Republicans defended Mr. Elsenhower from Senator Mc- Carthy’s thrusts.

THE FEDERAL SPOTLIGHT Career-Status, Insurance Bills Go to President By JOSEPH YOUNG Congress has approved and sent to the White House two major Federal employe bills, which President Elsenhower is expected to sign. One bill will give career status to about 50.000 Government indefinite employes who have passed civil service exams or who will take and pass a non-com-1 petitlve exam within the next year. The other bill protects the life) insurance policies of present and former Government workers in I employe welfare associations, which are going out of business ns a result of last year’s Federal Employes' Life Insurance Act. Still to be acted on as Con gress moves toward adjournment is the bill to raise the salaries of top Federal executives and the classified pay ceiling to $16,000 a year, protect employes against salary cuts when their jobs are down-graded and pro vide free fidelity bonds to Fed eral workers who now must pay for such bonds. Sponsors of the executive pay and down-grading protection bill also hoped for Senate action today. The measures have been approved by the House. In an effort to get action on the executive pay bill, the admin istration has sent word to Cap itol Hill that it is willing to accept the slightly less liberal House measure Instead of the one approved by the Senate Civil Service Committee. Among other things, the Senate unit’s bill would raise the $14,800 classified pay ceiling to $17,500. compared to a new $16,000 ceiling in the House bill. However, the $16,000 ceiling approved by the House would be j L. ■-* = Annuitant Raise In Conterence House-Senate conferees were ito meet today on legislation to increase the pension benefits of 300,000 Federal annuitants. The Senate last night sent the I legislation to conference when it approved a bill to raise the pensions of retired employes by ! 12 per cent of the first $1,500 a year of their annuities and 8 per cent in excess of that figure. The House last week approved the same increase, but the Sen ate last night added a few amendments, making it neces sary to send the bill to confer ence. The House-approved bill would not give any increases to annui tants drawing more than $4,000 a year. The passed bill would give the increase to all Federal annuitants but would limit the maximum amount of the increase to $360. The Senate’s bill also would bring under Civil Service retire ment coverage employes of the Democratic and Republican con gressional campaign committees. This feature is not included in the House bill. Both the House and Senate bills apply the 12 and 8 per cent formula to those whose annuities began before last July 1. Those who retire between July 1 and next December 31 would have their annuities increased by 10 per cent on the first $1,500 and 7 per cent on any amount over that. Those who retire during the first six months of 1956 would have their annuities increased on an 8 and 6 per cent formula. Those who retire during the ! second six months of 1956 would | get an increase of 6 and 4 per cent: the increase formula would ,! be 4 and 2 per cent for thoff who retire during the first half of ! 1957, the figures would be 4 and 2 per cent, and for those who retire during the second half of 1957, the rates would be 2 and 1 per cent. Those who retire after Decem ber 31, 1957. would not get any increase. JJtt’V®" VllJjr TRADE IN MB!

Government to take over the as sets and to assume the liabilities of the estimated 135,000 life in surance policies held by present and former employes and issued by beneficial groups. More than half of the employes involved are in this area. The measure would give the nonprofit employes welfare as sociations 10 years to turn their policies over to the Government. The groups would have to go out of the life msurance busi ness. The policy-holders would continue to pay premiums to the Government at the same rates they paid to the amploye [groups. The employe welfare groups are unable to compete in |tbe life insurance field with the Government’s low-cost group life insurance plan.
