Foreign Minister Anioine Pinay
answered a Russian "peace offen
sive" today with a pledge that
France will remain a member in
good standing of the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization.
Pinay gave this pledge in a
speech prepared for delivery at
the 10th anniversary meeting of
the United Nations. His appearance
was awaited with eager interest;
by a world wondering how the Big
Four planned to cope with Russia's
latest diplomatic maneuver. -
Soviet Foreign Minister V. M.
Molotov launched the Russian
peace offensive yesterday on
schedule. In a 48-minute speech,
he scolded the West for building up
arms, establishing military bases
in foreign lands and taking other
belligerent moves.
Heard It Before
He challenged the West lo "make
the next move" in ending the arms
race and urged adoption of Soviet
disarmament proposals made in
London last month
Pinay said immediately after
hearing Molotov s speech, "I have
heard the same speech at least
10 times. It is always the same
thing. We are the bad ones and
they are the good ones. We want
war and Russia wants peace."
Today, he was more diplomatic.
He said in essence that regional
security arrangements, such as
NATO, were vitally necessary as
a defense against aggression in a
world that has not disarmed.
"In the present world, as long
as a general and controlled dis
armament has not become a real
ity, genuine security can be en
sured only In the framework of
regional agreements as .provided
for In the (U.N.) charter," he said,
: War Machinery Needed ,
"To be efficient, such agree
ments must Include, in times of
peace, machinery for military co
operation designed 'to bring about
a collective reaction, should an
aggression occur."
He said all collective security
arrangements the League of Na
tionsfailed between 1919 and 1939
because military cooperation was

U. S. Secretary of State John

on Molotov's speech, said he would

WHAT'S DOING MERE? Believe it or not, men dedicated to the protection of the Deschutes
forest from fires this season are pictured here calmly watching a fire. The brush blaie in the pine
land was started to provide suppression training for youths attending the annual guard school
at Pringle Falls. The afternoon was so damp tha t the youths had to wait until the fire got start
ed before they could go to work. (Bend Bulletin Photo)
Weatherman Offers Display at Fire School
Repeating a performance of two
years ago. the weatherman Wed
nesday afternoon presented a spe
cial display for Deschutes National
forest personnel attending the 12th
annual guard school at Pringle
falls on the Deschutes.
Lightning flashed from dark
clouds, bolts struck into distant
woods and gusty winds, of the
type that would whip fires into in
fernos, kicked up dust clouds.
The afternoon electric storm,
not 0i strong as the rt that vis
ited the area when the annual
guard school was held in 1953, oc

Hells Canyon
Action Slowed
By Senators
ate Interior Committee today post
poned for at least a week and
possibly for the year action on a
bill to authorize the controversial
Hells Canyon Project.
Acting Chairman Clinton P. An
derson tD-NM) said a date for a
net meeting on the bill will be
set by Chairman James E. Murray
(D-Mont) when he returns here
July 1.
Anderson said there was a "great
deal of discussion" at today's
meeting that action on the bill
"might be premature." The dis-
cussion concerned the fact that the
Federal Power Commission is con
sidering an application for private
utility dams in the canyon, and
recent Supreme Court decisions on
water nghts.
He indicated that Sen. Eugene
1. Millikin (R-Colol led a group
holding that tbe bill should be put
off until next year. Sponsors have
sought Millikin's vote for imme-
diate approval of the bill
The committee adopted om
amendment intended to "bolster"
the rights of Idaho water users
upstream from the proposed dam,
Anderson said.

By Gen. Lucero
As Great Leader
(UP) War Minister Gen. Frank
lin Lucero hailed President Juan
D. Peron Wednesday night as "the
most excellent president ...and
commander - in -chief of all the
armed forces."
Lucero was named by Peron as
chief of all military and security
forces in Argentina following the
abortive navy-led revolt last week.
DlDlomatic observers interpret
ed Lucero's praise of Peron as art
attempt to squash reports emanat
ing from outside Argentina that
Peron either already had been or
soon would be shorn of power.)
The war minister lauded Peron
in a brief speech to the armed
forces over the Army's radio net
work and rebrondcast later to 4he
nation by the state radio.
Lucero said the army had proved
itself worthy of the "high honor of
being conducted in such difficult
circumstances by the most excel
lent president of the nation and
commander in - chief of all the
armed forces, General Peron.
Lucero was appointed command
er-in-chief of the "forces of re
pression" Thursday night follow

The last of the army troops were
withdrawn from Buenos Aires dur

that "absolute calm reigns through

From Scientists
WASHINGTON (UP) A panel of
top polio scientists endorsed 8 to

cine and recommended that the
nationwide inoculation program
The vote was taken before a
House Commerce Subcommittee.1
Thus, a majority of the nation's!
top polio experts rejected the rec
ommendation of three prominent
authorities that production and use
of Salk vaccine be halted until it
can be made "safer '
The eight, experts voting in fav
or of the vaccuie included Dr.
James A. Shannon of the National
Institute of Health who represent
ed the Public Health Service at
the unique round table congression
al hearing.
In the final voting, four scien
tists on the panel abstained. One
of these was Dr. Jonas E. Salk
whose enthusiasm for the vaccine
he developed is no secret.
The recommendation of the three
scientists late yesterday whipped
up new clouds of confusion just
the program seemed headed
for clear sailing after two months
of uncertainty and stop and go
No Change Seen
But government officials said
the Public Health Service is not
now considering n change m its
basic position that vaccine releas
ed under rigid new federal stand
ards is safe for public use.
The service has known for some
time abou'. the r'xibtsi of some
experts. But it had felt (he "great
preponderance" of scientific opin
ion supports the decision to go
ahead with .the program.
The House Commerce Subcom
mittee swung into the second
round of its unique "Round three"
hearings on the vaccine's safety
and effectiveness today.
Expect Criticism

polio authorities are serving as
an informal advisory panel for the
Dr. Albert B. Sabin, noted Unl-j
versity of Cincinnati researcher,
and a member of a government
vaccine committee, kicked off the I
safety dispute by expressing doubt I
that the present Salk vaccuie Is suf
ficiently safe for large scale use.
He urged an immediate halt in its I
production and use until it can be
made safer, perhaps by winter.
Two other scientists the great

Enders, and Dr. William D. Mc-
