Be Held Down
By Congress I
WASHINGTON AP — The |
Eius.' Appropriations Commit-1
tee icclc7 start’d fulfilling the
premise cf its leaders to hold
dcwn the federal payroll next

In the first 1900 money bill, it
r-fused to finance 809 of the
1,07D new jobs requested for
the Commerce D apartment for
t.i? fiscal year starting July 1.
At the came time, it cut $39,-
092, 765 frcm the $799,615,000 in
new funds President Eisanhower
asked for the department and
relat.d agencies.
Shortly aftar the President
sent hiS annual budget to Con
gress last month. Chairman
Clarence Cannon D—Mo. and
Rep. John Taber R—NY, senior
minority member, complained
o. prop sals to increase federal
personnel.
Taber said an estimated 40,-
C.O of the proposed 42,500 new
jobs weren’t necessary and
joined Cannon in calling for an
over-all appropriation cut of at
least two billion dollars.
Heaviest hit by the commit
tee’s action was the Weather
Bureau, which requested money
for 200 new positions, most of
them for proposed new aviation
services.

the lifeline and into the water,”
said Seaman Apprentice David
Formichella, 19, of 27 Van Dyke

New Era In Business
Dealings In Moscow
llAV ANA AP —A shiny Soviet
exposition set the sta®3 today fo-
talks between Fidel Castro’s trade
-hungry government and the top
Soviet pakisman, Deputy Premier
Ar.astas I. Mikeyan.
A to'i Castro aid quickly let it
be k-own that Cuba hopes for a
new era in business dealings with
Mo cow
Only a few hours after Mike-
yan’s arrival Thursday, the left-
wing president of Cuba’s national
bank, Emeste Guevara, told a TV
audience that “trade is necessary
and for us very necessary.”
The opportunity piobab’y will
come after the 64-y3ar-o’d Mike
yan formally opens the Soviet sci
entific, technical and cultural ex-
hibit-f(’ armounced purpose of
his visit.
U.S. officials in Washington
viewed Mikeyan’s visit as a dra
matic prepaganda move by Mos
cow to capitalize on the low ebb
in American-Cuban relations.
They say he may have brought
a raft of trade offers in anticipa
tion of Cuban overtures.
An added possibility is that
Mikeyar will seek to re-establish
Cuban-Soviet diplomatic relations,
which vvere broken off during Ful-
gencie Batista’s regime. In line
with such a move, he is expected
to invite Castro to pay a state
visit to Moscow.
Western Democrats
Open Election Year
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. AP —
Western Democrats open an elec-
tion-year conference today, a
showcase for Democratic presi
dential aspirants. It drew 750
delegates from 13 states along
with invited Texans and Okla-
ho.mans.
Delegates estensibly will draft
a Western plank fOT the Demo
cratic national platform.
The b i g attraction, however,
was the appearance of leading
romination.
The ’3 states, including Hawaii
and Alaska, will command 271 of
the 1.531 votes at the national
convention in Los Angeles next
July. That’s a third of the 761
needed to nominate the presiden
tial candidate.
Former President Harry S. Tru
man won’t attend. He sent word
frcm his home in Independence,
Mo., indicating that his wife’s
'lealth forced him to cancel out
as the main speaker.
Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey D-
Minn, a candidate for the nom-
inatiion, and National Chairman
Paul Butler will address the con
ference Saturday night in his
place. .S«n. Lyndon B. Johnson
D-Tex, also a possible nominee,
speaks tonight.
Sen. John F. Kennedy D-Mass,
a Jeclared candidate for the nom
ination, will appear at a rally Sun-
da; organized by New Mexico
,Vi:nds while conference delegates
tour the Los Alamoes scientific
s'; oratory, 90 miles away.
Hodges Waits For
Primary Returns
RALEIGH—Hodges said that
whether he will call special elec
tion would depend on develop
ments in the primary.
The term of Rep. Hall, who
died last Friday of cancer, ex
pires Jan. 3, 1961.
Heinz Rollman, Wayneeville
industrialist, has announced as
Taylor of Black Mountain has
said he will seek the Democrat
ic nomination.
Raymond Maxwell, secretary
of the State Board of Elections,
said candidates for the short
term—the remainder of Hall’s
term—will be voted on in the
regular primary on a special
ballot. Candidates for the reg
ular two-year term will be on
the regular primary ballot.
If nominees are chosen in the
May 28 voting, the governor
could conceivably call a special
election in the same date that
any runoff race might be held in
June for any other offices.
However, if a runoff is neces
sary for the short term, it will
dim the possibility of a special
election because Congress like
ly will be adjourned before the
regular election.

Algerian Policy Settled
By Strengthened Cabinet
PARIS AP — President Charles
le Gaulle strengthened his Cabi
net today by promoting steadfast
supporters of his Algerian policy
ind firing Jacques Soustelle, lead-
'ng spokesman of the French co
lonialists in Algeria.
Soustelle, once touted as the
strong man of De Gaulle’s sup
porters, was ousted from the post
jf minister of the Sahara, atomic
energy and overseas possessions be
cause of his identification with the
Algiers insurgents who unsuccess
fully defied De Gaulle last week.
Another casualty was Communi
cations Minister Bernard Cornut-
jentille, who had wanted to com
promise with the rebellious French
settlers.
A brief announcement from the
President’s press office said that
De Gaulle had approved the de
parture from the Cabinet of Sou
stelle and Cornut-Gentille.
Defense Minister Pierre Guil-
'aumat was demoted to minister-
delgegate charged with atomic re
search, part of Soustelle’s former
duties. He had been severely crit
icized because the army let the
settlers’ revolt in Algiers drag on
for eight days instead of nipping
't at the start.
Michel Maurice-Bokanowski,
long a GauIIist, and secretary of
state at the Interior Ministry, was
moved up to head the Communi
cations Ministry.
was promoted to a minister-dele-
Information Minister Roger Frey
gate. His duties were not immedi
ately announced, but it was be
lieved he would replace Robert
Lecourt in charge of relations vrith
the French Community. Lecourt
becomes a minister of state for
relations with Parliament, the Sa
hara and overseas departments
and territories, the latter being
part of Soustelle’s former prov
ince.
Newcomers to the Cabinet in
cluded Pierre Messmer, career ci
vil servant and former high com
missioner of French West Africa,
named defense minister; Louis
Terrenoire, head of the Gaullist
party, the Union for the New Re
public, named information mini
ster; an Jean Foyer, UNR member
of the National Assembly, named
secretary of state for relations
with the French Community.
The Foreign Ministry remains
in the hands of career diplomat
Maurice Couve de Murville.
Under De Gaulle’s new consti
tution, Cabinet aappointments no
longer have to be approved by
the National Assembly.
