New Air Lanes
Rules Ordered
Air Force Bans
Visual Flying Here
Star Staff Writer
New civil-military flight rules
were in effect across the Na
tion today in an interim move
to diminish collision danger, but
one regulation was already
brewing a storm.
Newest of the rules, which
went into effect at 3 a.m., sets
up three transcontinental aerial
boulevards 40 miles wide in
which all aircraft between 17,-
000 and 20,000 feet must be
under instrument flight rules.!
This means they are constantly
being tracked by Civil Aero
nautics Administration radar
and communications,
ij Military flights are banned
. from these skyways.
The second regulation, self-
I imposed by the Air Force in
the Washington area, prohibits
t visual flying, requiring every
; flight to be under instrument
flight rules from takeoff to
■ landing, except Air Defense
- operations.
Complain of Delays
" I
e It was this one, which be
l came effective Friday, that drew
criticism from military pilots
- themselves because of delays.
While aircraft activity at 8011 l
l iing Air Force Base was at a
r minimum yesterday. National
. i Guard Air operations at An
k drews Air Force Base boosted
s flights.
e A spokesman said delays were
running as high as 55 minutes,
s but one disgruntled pilot said

De Gaulle Tells French
To Lend Buried Gold
European Correspondent of The Star j i
PARIS, June 14. Gen. !
Charles de Gaulle has told !
j I
Frenchmen they must dig up
those pots of buried gold and
loan them to the government
or they will never see the new
glory he is planning for them.
For the fact is, that the
French government by any
normal standards is broke.
Gen. de Gaulle cannot pay
the cost of integrating Mos
lems into the Algerian economy
and he cannot pay the cost of
continuing the war against
them. He cannot increase the
size of the army as his power
ful junta backers demand and
he cannot continue the high
standard of living French work
ers insist on.
And he certainly cannot pay
the price necessary to make
France a great world atomic
The men in his finance min

understand these problems
thoroughly—they are some of
the best fiscal experts in the

Adoptions in D.C. Area
Reach All-Time High
Foreign Baby Supply, More Efficient
Agency Procedures Spur Increase
Btar BUS Writer
Adoptions in the Washington area have reached ap
all-time high, spurred by the availability of foreign babies
and more efficient local adoption procedures.
A Father's Day looff it one the most poignant social
problems confronting thousands of area residents—the
adoption of a baby—reveals:
• Thooihout the area, the number of babies placed
for adoption by local agencies
rose from 319 in 1956 to 424 in '
1957 and most agencies pre
dict adoptions will show an
othe.' sharp rise this year.
• All welfare directors in the
area reported the arrival of j'
foreign babies and negotiations i
under way for more.
• Stricter enforcement of!
"baby broker” laws has chan
neled more babies into official
adoption channels in most
parts of the area.
• The Washington area ranks
high in demands for adopted
children, partially because of
the higher economic level.
Wailing Period About Same
While more babies are be
coming available, the demand
for adopted children has like
wise stepped up. As a result,
although some agencies have
increased their adoption staffs ■
to speed up placements, the j
average waiting period for a 1
child still ranges from 18
months to three years.
This delay is prompting more
and more would-be parents to
seek children to adopt in for
eign lands. Some of them have
started negotiations here under
a new immigration law which
went into effect last September
and permits unlimited immi
gration of orphans for adoption
de Gaulle what he faces. Gen. j
de Gaulle has told the ministry
to solve the country's fiscal
problems quickly while he gets
on with the job of molding
France to his vision of glory.
But it’s hard to see where the
solutions lie. A new foreign
loan has been ruled out.
The government is broke be
cause Frenchmen and the rest j
of the world lack confidence in
France’s future. Confidence
certainly won't be restored
until the Algerian war is ended.
The government has no
money to buy victory however, j
And If the government accepts
defeat tthat is a negotiated

Impatient of Delays
But many area residents, im
patient of delays in interna

red tape involved, have gone to
the source. They have either
negotiated overseas for a child
and stayed abroad till the adop

cated a child overseas and
started negotiations. Agencies
in this area are more willing to

Adams Facts
To Be Shown,
Harris Says
Chairman Denies
Insinuations Have
Place in Probe
BUr Staff Writer
The head of the House sub
committee investigating Fed
eral regulatory agencies said
yesterday the committee was
dealing in facts —and not in
sinuations—in its disclosures
involving Presidential Assist
ant Sherman Adams.
Subcommittee Chairman
Harris said the facts will be
brought out fully in hearings
that will resume tomorrow.
Mr. Adams, in a letter to
Mr. Harris last week, described
as unwarranted and unfair
what he said were insinuations
by the subcommittee that he
had interceded with the Fed
eral Trade Commission and the
Securities and Exchange Com
mission in behalf of Bernard
Goldfine, Boston financier.
"I don’t think the charge
has any basis, because Adams'
letter itself clears that up,"
Mr. Harris said. "The fact that
he denies everything and then
comes along and says, T did
so-and-so’ seems to show what
the facts are.
••We’ll develop those facts
starting tomorrow morning at
10 o'clock.”
Letter Sent Thursday
The letter to which Mr.
Harris referred was sent to

i afternoon. It said the commit

Series of Events
Mr. Harris’ comments were
the latest in a series of events
from which the White House

Mr. Adams had received a S7OO

COLONIAL BEACH, Va., June 14 W — Republicans of
Virginia’s Bth congressional district today said they “deplore t
the conduct of Sherman Adams and believe his usefulness j
to the administration has reached an end.” (
A resolution passed by an almost unanimous voice vote
at the district convention here urged President Eisenhower i
to take “the same action as he
has during the past 5 l /2 years
in all cases of a similar nature."
The resolution was de
nounced during a brief debate
by William J. McDonald of
Waterford, who said "we have
a hell of a nerve to condemn

Thomas B. Merrick of Gordons

In Red A-Talk Note
AuaeUtcd Pr«M Staff Writer
The United States accused Russia today of concealing
some propaganda hooks in its note accepting scientific
talks on nuclear test detection.
It said the points must be cleared away before the
talks open in Geneva July 1.
Although this threatened a possible delay, Press Officer
Joseph Reap said at the State
department he assumed the
conference would begin on i
schedule. t
The purpose of the United i \
States objections seemed to be 1 1
to deny the Soviet a propa-1
ganda advantage in respect toj
India and possibly Japan, and ,
also on the issue of nuclear |
test suspension. h
But while challenging the',
Soviet note on thesfe points. -
the United States said it was ,
gratified to note “the high ,
technical caliber” of experts ,
designated by Russia to take
part in the proposed meeting. ,
The United States has in
sisted from the first that the!
Geneva talks should be purely
scientific. Today it was learned
that Secretary of State Dulles
has instructed the United
States scientists who will at
tend to ignore political con
' siderations, unless the Russian
experts reverse them, and con
centrate on solving the scien
tific problems or a test de
tection system.
