Heavy Fighting
Breaks Out
Inside Beirut
Showdown Seen
With Rebels in
3 Major Battles
BEIRUT, June 14 UP).—
Heavy lighting erupted today
inside Beirut. It looked like a
showdown battle between gov
ernment and rebel forces.
It was by far the worst battle
in the caiptal since the rebel
lion began in Lebanon 36 days
At least three big battles were
being fought between security
forces and insurgents who are
trying to overthrow the pro-
Western government or Presi
dent Camille Chamoun.
One of the battles was rag-.
ing around the Associated Press
office in the Zerif district on
the edge of a Moselm quarter, j
The lighters were blasting
away with pistols, rifles, ma
chine guns and mortars.
Intensive Firing
The most intensive firing was
between the Associated Press
office and the presidential
palace, about 300 yards away
Another big battle was being
fought about 300 yards in the
opposite direction, in the Mos
lem quarter of Basta, the bar
ricaded sector used as rebel
The third battle was raging:
on the city's outskirts for Ramelj
It was not immediately known
which side launched the attack, j
But, with United Nations ob
servers moving into Lebanon, it
could be a desperate insurgent
attempt to bring down the gov
It also could be a government
offensive to wipe out insurgents
holed up in the Basta district.
The government outlawed the
three rebel political parties yes
Fight for Prison
Fighting on the outskirts of
the city started when insur
gents tried to capture Ramel
Prison, located midway between
the city and the airport. First
reports said that insurgents
fought their way into the
prison yard. But before they
could release any prisoners,
security forces attacked and
were reported driving them
Fighting broke out as noon
time crowds were making their
way home for lunch. Pedes
trians scattered for cover
Shutters slammed closed on
homes and buildings. Motorists
abandoned their automobiles
and took shelter.

parties yesterday. Premier Sami
Solh accused them of under

Lebanon went to the U. N.
Security Council last week and
obtained U. N. observers to
watch its borders against arms
smugglers and infiltrators from
the United Arab Republic.
Lebanon has charged that the
UAR was aiding the insurrec
tion against President Cha
moun. Both the UAR and the
rebels deny this.

Soustelle Told to Offer
Algeria Truce Plan
Dp Gaulle Gives Role to Junta Leader;
Pledge of Support Clears Air
PARIS, June 14 UP).— Premier Charles de Gaulle today
called in Jacques Soustelle, political power behind the in
surgent junta in Algiers, to advise the cabinet on ways to
restore peace to Algeria.
If Gen. de Gaulle dressed down his old legislative sup
porter for the junta’s brief show of defiance early this week,
as was widely predicted, there
was no official disclosure. Ap
parently the junta’s pledge of
support to Gen. de Gaulle last
night cleared the air.
The two conferred for 90
minutes in Gen. de Gaulle’s
private office. Aides to the
Premier said they exchanged
views on Algeria. Gen. de
Gaulle asked Mr. Soustelle to
give cabinet ministers his ideas
on a settlement of the 3 Vi
year-old Arab-Berber rebel
Mr. Soustelle told reporters
the Premier requested him to
see members of the govern
ment and “expose to them that
which I have been able to
learn personally in North Af
Asked if he would enter
Gen. de Gaulle's government,
Mr. Soustelle replied curtly:
"That’s another thing.” His
supporters on the Algerian
Committee of Public Safety
have been demanding a cabi
net post for him. They
showed their dissatisfaction
Tuesday by approving a motion
demanding a political house
cleaning in Paris, drawing a
reprimand from Gen. de
* Will Stay in Paris
Mr. Soustelle said he will see
Gen. de Gaulle again. He will
stay in Paris a few more days
instead of returning immedi
ately to Algiers, as he had
planned. Gen. de Gaulle sum

To Seek Release of 9
BERLIN. June 14 (JF).—Com-,
munist East Germany said to
day a United States Army
colonel paid an official call at
1 its foreign ministry to seek the
release of nine Army prisoners.
The official East Germany
news agency ADN said the call
—first direct contact between
the East German regime and
the United States—vims made
by Col. Robert P. McQuail, ac
companied by a major.
ADN said East Germany’s
Deputy Foreign Minister Otto
Winzer told Col. McQuail that
his government was ready to
settle the affair quickly if Col.
McQuail was fully competent
to negotiate.
Mr. Winzer insisted that Col.
McQuail show that he had
been fully authorized by th«
United States Government to
j take up this international
j matter.
Another meeting between
Coi. McQuail and the East
basasdor Sergei Vinogradov
walked in. He said afterward
he gave the Premier a verbal
personal message from Soviet
Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev
and a note on a proposed sum
mit conference similar to that
delivered yesterday in Wash-’
ington and London.
The Premier meanwhile;
sought a sound financial foun
dation for his political and co- j
lonial reform plans by asking
his countrymen to dig hoarded
money out of their mattresses.
Encouragingly, the Bureau of
Statistics announced that the
last month’s rise in the cost of
living index was the smallest
in more than a year—only
about one-tenth of a per cent.
Bond Issue Appeal
France’s World War II leader
laid his prestige on the line last

appeal for support for a new

it would mean a financial vote

Soviet Agrees
To Atom Talks
Parleys to Cover
Policing Methods
MOSCOW, June 14 UP). —The
Soviet Union has agreed to
begin scientific exploration talks
in Geneva July 1 on ways to
police any worldwide ban of
nuclear explosions.
The Russian agreement came
yesterday in answer to pro-1
posals Tuesday by President
Eisenhower. Mr. Eisenhower’s
message, which followed simi
lar earlier proposals, avoided a
flat United States commitment
to stop testing atomic and hy
drogen bombs. The West has
insisted that technical talks on'
inspection must come first.
Russia announced in April
that she was suspending nu
clear tests and challenged the
West to follow her lead. The
Russians have consistently re
jected the idea of inspection
and control and claimed the
tests could be stopped by a!
simple declaration from the:
atomic powers, currently Rus- j
sia, the United States and j
Britain, with France believed
coming up fast.
U. S. Officials Pleased
The Russian note said the
i technical talks should be con
; eluded in three or four weeks
and plugged the Soviet position
by saying the Geneva meeting
1 should lead to a quick suspen
j sion of all tests.
Officials in Washington were
reported pleased by Russia's
agreement to sit down at the
time and place suggested by
Mr. Eisenhower. Russia had
proposed that any talks be
conducted in Moscow.
Mr. Eisennower proposed that
* scientific experts from the
; United States. Britain and
France sit in on the talks for
|"our side” while the Commu
nists could send scientists from
Russia. Poland and Czechoslo
Russia agreed to this.

The Senate today debated

Unions refusing to report

tection of the National Labor
Relations Board under the Ad

sponscAed by Senator H. Alex

Leaders hoped to conclude
action today, after three mara
thon sessions, on the union re
form bill. Senator Kennedy,
Democrat of Massachusetts, so
far has held the line against
major revision of his middle
road bill.
Opponents of the Smith
amendment argued it would be
unfair to penalize all members
of a union for the misdeeds of
corrupt officers. But sponsors
argued the proposed sanction
would provide an incentive for
rank and file members to clean
up their own unions.
Knowland Changes Up
Among other amendments
scheduled for action are pro
posals that Minority Leader
Knowland, Republican of Cali

union democracy. He would
compel unions to hold referen

the Senate rejected by 53 to 37
an administration proposal to

Board declines jurisdiction.

would close a jurisdictional
gap that hurts workers and

Plans to Return to Norfolk Home

CHARLOTTESVILLE, June 14 UP).— The University of
Virginia board of visitors today accepted “with regret” the
resignation of Colgate W. Darden, jr., as president.
Mr. Daiden’s resignation, submitted to the spring meet

In his letter of resignation, submitted through Frank

changing it."
It praised his work for the
university, both as Governor,
when he guided appropriations

noted that buildings added dur

Hit Silence
On Issue
Star SUIT writer
Two Republican Senatora
called today on Presidential As
sistant Sherman Adams to an
swer reports of gifts from a
Boston financier. They hinted
strongly that he should leave
the White House if he cannot
furnish a good explanation.
The demands came from Sen
ators Potter of Michigan and
Goldwater of Arizona, both can
didates for re-election this fall.
The two, stressing that they
had campaigned against cor
ruption in the Truman admin
istration in 1952, indicated the
reports involving Mr. Adams
and New England Industrialist
Bernard Goldflne might hurt
Republican chances this year.
Reports of Two Gifts
Their blasts—strongest yet
from the Republican side in
Congress—came after the Whit*
House refused either to confirm
or deny reports of two gifts to
Mr. Adams totaling (3,100.
These were:
1. A vicuna coat worth S7OO,
which reports current in New
England said had been sent to
President Eisenhower’s top aid*
by Mr. Goldflne.
2. An oriental rug worth
(2,400, which the New York
Post said had been bought in
a shopping trip at Macy’s by
Mr. Adams and Mr. Goldfln*
and paid for by the latter with
a check on one of his many
At his regular press briefing
this morning, White Hous*
Press Secretary James C. Hag
etry refused to comment on

merous other questions on th*
Adams matter, Mr. Hagerty

position clear and was not go
ing further.

Presidential news conference
next Wednesday—at which the
Adams controversy almost cer
tainly would be Topic A—would
not rule out the possibility of
a conference, although Presi
dent Garcia of the Philippines
will be visiting Washington at
the time.
Raises Isue of Usefulness
Senator Potter said in reply
to a question by The Star:
“I campaigned against the
| mink coats and the deep fteezes
iof the Truman administration
'and that goes for vicuna coats
and oriental rugs. too. Unless
I Gov. Adams can present &
| fuller explanation than that in
! the letter published yesterday
he has lost his usefulness to
! the administration.”
The letter to which Senator
Potter referred was sent by Mr.
Adams to Chairman Harris,
; Democrat of Arkansas, of tha
House Subcommittee on Legis
lative Oversight. Angrily de
nouncing what he called “insin.
uations,” Mr. Adams acknowl
i edged he had been a hotel guest
of Mr. Goldflne in Boston, but
