Romulo Asks
Gen. Carlos P. Romulo of the Phil
ippines today asked the Unite-d Na
tions to adypt a statement of "re
dedication" in which all members
would reaffirm that they stand for
Romulo. who had said lie wanted
to beat the Soviet Union to the
punch with any peace proposals,
made the request in a speech pre
pared for delivery at the 10th anni
versary meeting of the United Na
tions. Russian Foreign Minister V. M.
Molotov was 'the next speaker on
the agenda. tj1p Filipino leader
sak although no formal business
wlfc supposed to be brought up at
the commemorative meeting he
thought the "sense of history and
opportunity we all now feel" should
be expressed here "in some sort of
rededication for -the United Na
tions." Must Convince People
"I have been impressed with the
growing feeling that this anniver
sary meeting should, in some wav,
produce the words that will enable
people everywhere to be convinced
that we are not only all for
peace. , . hut that we pledge our
governments to the achievement of
peace, with security, justice and
freedom for all mankind," Romulo
"We are not here to propose or
approve resolut ions. " he contin
ued. "But certainly after we have
heard , all the spokesmen for the
GO member nations, we can some
how give expression in what may
later be known as the San Fran
cisco declaration."
Romulo said that the statement
would contain a "rededication of
ourselves to our main purpose,
which is nothing less than a planet
made fit and safe for all members
of the human community."
Reference to Soviets
Then, in an apparent reference
to the Soviet Union. Romulo said
pointedly, "and please notice that
have emphasized the word 'all'.
Romulo, who was president of
the General Assembly in 1949, has
been considered one of the most
influential powers in the United
Nations, particularly in his role
as a link between the Western pow
ers and the Asian-African people
Russia has been trying to swing
to Communism.
The little Filipino general's stir
ring plea for the "rededication of
peaceful intentions" obviously was
designed to counteract any propos
als Molotov planned to make for
propaganda purposes. ,

Italy's Scelba
Submits His
ROME (UP) Italian Premier
Mario Scelba and his pro-Western
government resigned today. ,
The Premier handed the resig
nation of his middle of the road
coalition to President Tiovanni
Gronchi this afternoon, plunging
Italy into a political crisis at a
critical stage of world affairs.
Scelba was toppled by his own
the grounds that coalition rule in
Christian Democratic party on
Italy is dead. The Christian Demo
crats charged that Scelba's gov
ernment, in its 16 months in power,
had "done nothing" to cure the
nation's numerous problems.
The left-leaning Gronchi was ex
pected to ask Scelba 'to remain
in power as a carmaker until a
new Premier can be found. The
new Premier is expected to be
another Christian Democrat.
Scelba, an implacable foe of
Communism, was tumbled by a
party revolt lead by a strange
combination of left and right
wingers who seek to steer Italy:
along both courses at once. j
The powerful right wing and left:
wing rebels in the Christian Dom
cratic party, who engineered Scel
ba's downfall, hoped to piece to
gether a one-paity government
which wouid rely upon left wing
and right wing parties for voting
support In Parliament. Five pre
vious attempts at such a govern
ment since the June, 1953, general
elections have failed.

Lovely Princess

Remember the song that Rudy
Vallee used to sing about a lovely
girl? "Oh, Lynn! You're a beauti
ful thing!" It had a catchy mel-.
ody that was a natural for a saxo-
phone obligato. The words went on
to tell about the various charms
of the young lady in question.!
They might have been written j
about Lynn Sehrock, except that!
she was a very tiny miss when
the song wns popular. Now she's
a popular Fourth of July Water
Pageant princess, and the song i;;
forgotten. Maybe the municipal
band should look it up and learn
it. !
Lynn Is 18 and the dnughtcr of

today accepted Army Secretary
Robert T. Stevens' resignation and
appointed Defense Department
General Counsel Wilher M. Bruck
er to succeed him around the end
ol July.
Both men had been embroiled
with Son. Joseph R. McCarthy
(U-Wis). Stevens, who became a
nationally known television figure '
during last year's bitter Army-
McCarthy hearings, had been dis
cussing his resignation with Mr.
Eisenhoser for weeks.
But Brucker, Gl-year-old former
governor of Michigan, had no
inkling of his promotion until
about an hour before it was an
nounced. There was no Indication
that either man's relations with
McCarthy had anything to do with
today s events.

In the course of an appearance
before the Senale Investigating
Subcommittee during this spring's
Peress hearings, Brucker laughed
in McCarthy's face on one occa
sion and chortled on another that
he was "getting under" the sen
ators skin.
High Pentagon sources disclosed
yesterday that Stevens' resigna
tion, long rumored, wns actually
in the works. But Presidential
Press Secretary JameR C. Hager

"a few weeks." He said he was
motivated by "compelling per
sonal reasons."
The President lost no time, once
the resignation was in his hands,,
in accepting It and naming Bruck
er as Stevens successor. Then he
invited Brucker, Stevens, and
Wilson to ride with him to National
