Given Up As Dead,
Woman Is Revived^
SMITfifrIELD, N. C. (TP A woman whose doctor "be
lieved her dead after a 20-minute massage failed to re
store her heartbeat may have made the most complete
and dramatic recovery in medical annals, the doctor said
today.
Dr. Wayne H. Stockdale had left
,dhe pktient and James Raynor had
dead. * Then nurses removing anes
thjftie 'apparatus noticed that she
had started to breathe again, the
doctor said. He immediately re
sumed the operation.
Mrs. Marjorie Barbour Raynor,
30, has made a recovery that is
“the most complete and dramatic
I know of.” Stockdale said.
He described it as “a miracle
of the Master’s work upstairs.” ,
Severe damage to the brain us
ually results when the heartbeat
stops for as long as seven minutes,
and if the patient survives he is
not mentally competent, the doc
tor said.

WASHINGTON IIP ln*
siders will be listening for
Agriculture Secretary Ezra
T. Benson’s
Minn., speech this week for
a tip on Republican plains
for dealing with organised
labor in next year’s pru
dential campaign.
Benson is scheduled to speak;
before a farm audience Friday
evening. His last previous speech
on farm prices aroused CIO Presi
dent Walter Reuther to sharp re
ply.
That speech was given Sept. 2fl
in New Orleans Before the Farm
Equipment Institute. Benson did
not place all the blame for the
high price of farm equipment on
union labor wage gains. But he
squarely placed some of the blame
there.
Reuther 'challenged Instantly, in- ,
viting Benson to join him in urging
congressional investigation of wag
es. prices and profits in the steel,
automobile and farm equipment
industries. Meantime, the word in
Washington was that Benson had
not cleared his speech with the
White House where some of the
staff was represented as upset by
the secretary’s potshot at union
leadership.

Stiff Warning
Delivered At
First Session
GENEVA «PI The West
bluntly told the Soviet Un
ion today the Big Four must
agree on German unity and
European security before
there can be “further prog
ress” in easing the cold war.
The warning came at the open
ing session of the Big Four foreign
ministers conference in the ornate
hall of the Palais des Nations.
From the start, Britain. Franca
and the United States were ready
to offer the Soviet Union a package
guarantees in return for German
unification on western terms.
But as U. S. Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles, Soviet Foreign
Minister V. M. Molotov, British
Foreign Secretary Harold Macmil
lan and French Foreign Minister
Antoine Pinay convened, their dis
cussions were dogged by other
complications.
There was a threatened danger
of new war in the Middle East,
and a new governmental crisis in
France.
Decide On Details
In his opening statement Pinay.
the chairman, said:
“It is clear that on . .German
unity and security, there is no
obstacle to an immediate decision
on the details of a plan destined
to ibik the realiaatlo nos German
unity to the elaboration of a secur
ity System.
“Ip the absence of such a deci
sion, no later progress would be
possible" '
As an inducement to Molotov,
Pinay added that the plan would
be carried out progressively, taking
account of everyone’s "legitimate
interests,” ®nce the decision Is
madej: .
Macmillan reitejfated that the
West; was.. re%dy 'to make every
Effort her# to” keep the world on
the road to peace despite a back
ground of new dangers.
‘We must recognize that there
are considerable gaps between the
positions hitherto taken by the
Western powers and by the Union
of Soviet Socialist Republics,” he
said. “We believe that these can
be bridged, and we are determined
to make every effort to achieve
success.”
CALLS FOR CHANGE
WASHINGTON W—Former Sec
retary of state Dean Achescn
called today for election of a Dem
ocratic president because Republi
can “imaginative thinking has
dried up.”

It’s a counter, operating some
what like a speedometer, which the
