Kefauver Raps
Aid to Rival
Says Party Chiefs
Help Stevenson
> By GOULD LINCOLN
| j Ster BUS Correspondent
! CHICAGO. Nov. 19.—Senator
, Estes Kefauver of Tennessee.
- not yet a completely announced
’ candidate for the 1956 Demo
* cratic presidential nomination,
today left little doubt in the
> minds of observers that his coon
skin cap would be in the ring
} : before Christmas to oppose Adlai
Stevenson.
.{ Senator Kefauver tossed a
. slight bombshell, when he said
' he thought the Democratic Na
, tional Committee had been play
.llng favorites—giving Aid to Adlai
, Stevenson.
r “I’m not complaining about it.”
. the Senator said. “X just don’t
r think it’s proper.”
Telegrams Seat Out?
Pinned down, Mr. Kefauver
I said he had heard that tele
grams under Mr. Stevenson's
j name had been sent out by the
' Democratic National Committee
" headquarters In Washington in
1 reply to Invitations for speaking
engagements. He was somewhat
! vague about the time the tele
■ grams were sent out.
[ “No telegrams, signed by any
j one outside of the committee,
’ have been sent out by the na
-1 tional committee," Paul M.
■ Butler, Democratic National
‘ Committee chairman, said firmly
in reply. Mr. Butler has insisted
' that he Is entirely neutral, and
[ that he is seeing to it the na
tional committee does not
. espouse the cause of any of the
potential candidates for the
- presidential nomination.
Stephen A. Mitchell, former
national chairman, also denied
the charges, stating he was not
"aware that any such thing hap
pened.” There was no comment
from Mr. Stevenson.
Stevenson in Limelight
. For the last three days, Mr.
1 Stevenson has exclusively oc
cupied the limelight in Chicago.
..following the announcement of
flhis candidacy for the preslden
• tial nomination on Tuesday. The
advent of Mr. Kefauver. and also
of Gov. Averell Harrlman of
’ New York, here to attend the
’ 9100-a-plate fund-raising dinner
. tonight at the Chicago Amphl
i theater, has changed the picture,
giving a semblance of opposition
i to the Stevenson bandwagon.
Gov. Harrlman has maintained
right along he is not a candi
date. Many observers are con
vinced, however, Mr. Harrlman
is anxious for the nomination,
and will jump at it, if he gets
a chance later on. More than
2.500 Democrats, including for
, mer President Truman, will at
tend the dinner tonight, at which
, Mr. Stevenson will be the prtn
, cipal speaker, with Messrs. TTu-
I man, Harrlman and Kefauver all
, also to be heard. The Stevenson
1 speech will be broadcast, starting
[at 11:15 p.m. Washington time.
Big, easy-going, soft-spoken
[ Senator Kefauver admitted at a
I press conference yesterday he
had been encouraged by what
, he had learned about tbe polit
, leal situation since he returned

jPresident Says
He Won't Quit
Seeking Peace
Report by Dulles
On Geneva Blames
Failure on Reds
j The United States was under a
| pledge by President Elsenhower
I today never to admit failure in
| its quest for an enduring peace
| but any immediate new negotl-
I ations with Soviet Russia were
I ruled out as “foolish.”
The country’s position was out-
I lined by Secretary of State Dulles
I Text of Dulles' Address. Pago A-7
I in a report last night on the
| Geneva conference deadlock.
| “I know that no setback, no
I obstacle to progress will ever
I deter this Government and our
I people from the great effort to i
establish a just and durable;
peace,” the President said in a!
statement relayed by Mr. Dulles.
Never Admit Defeat
“Success may be long In com
ing. but there is no temporal
' force so capable of helping
achieve it as the strength, the;
might, the tpfrit of 165 million
free Americans. In striving
toward this shining goai, this
country will never admit defeat."
Mr. Dulles put the blame for
the frustrating failure of the
conference squarely on the Rus
sians and emphasized that Mr
Eisenhower “fully shares” his
view.
The Secretary frankly ac- 1
knowledged that the meeting of
the Foreign Ministers of the Uni
r ted States, Great Britain and
Prance with Soviet Foreign Min
'■ ister V. M. Molotov had been un
d able to reach any agreements.
- “In fact,” he said in a remark
, ad libbed in his prepared re
’ port, “it didn’t get us anywhere
e at all.”
- The conference deadlock. Mr
g Dulles said, left “many ques-
II tions up in the air." In the
highlight of the report the Sec
retary listed five of these ques
-4 tions and undertook to answer;
d them.
* Threats and Invective
L i The questions and his answers
,avere:
„ 1. Did the conference end the
. so-called “spirit of Geneva?" Not
1 entirely for the Soviet leaders;
“seem not to want to revert to;
the earlier reliance on threats
r and Invective.”
_ 2. Has the risk of a general
8 war increased? No. nothing ihatl
- happened at the conference to
. change Mr. Elsenhower’s esti
_ mate, after the Big Pour “sum
_ mlt” meeting in July, that war is
5 “less likely.”
3. Will the cold war be re
” sumed in full vigor? Yes, In the
“sense of peaceful competition"
? but Mr. Dulles hoped it would
’• be without “the same hostility
' and animosity which so defiled”
East-West relation in the past.
4. Will the United States have
y to revise its defense and mutual
d security programs? No. because
d the Government never "lowered
* our guard” as a result of Soviet
promises at the “summit” con
e ference.
e End Future Talks
5. Does the failure at Geneva
* mean an end to future negotia
tions with the Russians? No, but
I ‘it would of course be foolish to
[ attempt new negotiations” un
der present conditions.
Mr. Dulles said the Russians
are not yet willing to create "the
-. indispensable conditions for a
- secure peace” and “have Seri
1, ously set back the growth of any
f confidence the free world can
- justifiably place In Soviet prom
e ises.”
o The Secretary spelled out ini
f detail the reasons for failure to
e agree on the main purposes of
r the Geneva Conference—Euro
. pean security and a unified Ger
many, limitation of armament.
3 and development of contacts be
tween the East and West.
1 Despite having agreed at the
. July meeting to consider reuni
. fleation of Germany, the Rus
i sians refused to discuss this
problem seriously because. Mr.
Dulles, said, reunification would
} mean the end of their East Ger
. man puppet regime.
. On disarmament, Mr. Dulles;
. said the Russians wanted the
. benefits of reducing arms but
. were unwilling to submit to safe
[ guards that would make this
, possible.
. The conference failed to reach
: any agreement on freer contacts
[ between the East and West, Mr.
, Dulles said, because “the Soviet
rulers can hardly bring them
: selves to loosen existing thought
_ controls.”
■ NOW DO-YOUR-OWN SPAGHETTI 1
; DELIGHTS ITALIAN GADGETEERS '
I ROME (NANA).—ltaly, naturally, has produced many ,
- varieties of garlic squeezers, including some that would be (
a gadgeteer’s delight. (
News that the Italians make and eat a great many
kinds of spaghetti also is haYdly startling. But the gadget
. inventors have come up with something worthwhile. It is
• a do-it-yourself spaghetti machine, which produces long |
! strands in 57 (count them) different shapes.
Perhaps indicating that Italian inventors think of
• their stomachs as well as their pocketbooks, two of the most
4 notable recent gadget finds have been a corkscrew guar
t anteed to open bottles without breaking the cork and a
home coffee machine (at $3.50), which rivals the huge, 1
J shining Espresso machines that are a landmark of the (
J country. 1
Self-propulsion is another favorite of the Italian idea
’ men. First, a streamlined little motor scooter literally has t
J put the nation on wheels. Next came the new Flat 600, a «
> mite of a rear-engined car. Latest on the list: A two- <
• seater helicopter to lift the man on the street off the street. i

2 Groups Called
To Camp David
Mob Slays Caliph of Fez
In Sultan's Palace Yard
Follower of Deposed Ruler. Killed
In Bloody Outbreak of Factionalism
RABAT, French Morocco, Nov. 19 UP).—A bloody vendetta
among Moroccan dignitaries left a caliph and his bodyguard
dead and five others wounded in the royal palace courtyard ,
today.
1 The short-lived outbreak occurred as new’ t -ored Sultan
Sidl Mohammed Ben Youssef was inside the dace holding
consultations aimed at bringing
an end to the strife in Morocco.
The famous “Black Guard" of
palace Negro troops dived into
the melee and quickfy cowed the
‘sullen factions—dignitaries whoj
supported deposed Sultan Mou
lllay Ben Arafa and partisans of
Ben Youssef.
Spotted Old Foes
! The fight began when some
. Ben Youssef supporters spotted
■ their old enemies among the;
robed men in the courtyard’
awaiting an audience. Revolvers
and long knives came from be
neath flowing robes.
The dead caliph was Khalifl
Berdadl. a chieftain of the Pasha
of Fez and a Moulay Arafa sup
porter. The wounded included
two tribal caids and three other
Moroccans who had supported
Ben Arafa. Two of the wounded
were reported near death.
A palace spokesman said the
Ben Arafa supporters had not
been invited and had come on
1 their own to seek an audience
and make their peace with Ben
Youssef. The Sultan called off
some of his meetings after the
’jfight and his courtyard was
cleared by the Black Guard.:
;i which collected an array of
weapons.
No French Involved
No French police were present.

Party Seeks
Ghost Plane
CARLISLE, Pa., Nov. 19 OP).—
| A searching party trudged
through snow today in rugged
mountain terrain, checking a re
port that an airplane may have
crashed during a wintry storm.
“It seems to have been aj
ghost plane,” said Dale Murphy,
Cumberland County civil defense;
co-ordinator. “It came out of
ithin air and vanished into thin i
jair. No one knows where it came i
from and no one knows where it i
was going.”
Mr. Murphy said they received
a number of reports last night of
the plane having been seen fly
ing low in the mountain area 1
and that it appeared to be in 1
trouble. I
A search of the mountain area
about 20 miles from Carlisle In
South Central Pennsylvania was
started on foot after plans to
put planes into the air, were
abandoned because of low vis- ,
ibility.
Mr. Murphy placed the pos
sible scene of the crash 9 miles
southwest of Mount Holly ,
Springs, in Cumberland County. ,
For a while one plane was be- i
lieved missing in the vicinity. A ,
single engine, four-passenger
private plane that took off from
Reading, Pa., Airport late yes- 1
