Thursday with still no letug in

The eastern two-thirds of the
nation w is blistered by a record-
breaking heat ware Thursday as r
blanket of oven-hot air stretched
from New York to Omaha.
A cold front moved slowly into
the Gnat Lakes region but most
of the rest of the nation had no
lay's haat set records in
of cities and the weather
bureau predicted the mercury
would spiral to around the 100 de-
gree mark again.
At least seven persons were dead
—f" ur of them drowning victims
who perished while trying to es-
cape the heat.
Seorr* of citizens were prostrat-
ed by the sizzling heat wave and
many workers fled their offices

Perhaps the sadest victims of
the heat wave were middleweight
ehampion Sugar Ray Robinson and
Robinson attempted to wrest the
light-heavyweight cmwn from Joey
Maxim, but succumed to the heat
and lost by a technical knockout
when he was unable to answer the
hell for'the I4th round.
The heat—in unofficial 140 at
ringside—overcame referee Ruby
Goldstein and forced him to leave
the ring after the 10th round.
It was 96.S in New York, the
hottest June 25 on record.
A metorologist in Manhattan
sighed, "It's definitely the heat,
not the humidity, for a change."

FEDERAL SPENMNC REQUESTS
DRAW CRITICISMS AND CUTS
Eden To Press
For Nar Voice
LONDON, June 28, 'L.R> —
Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden
met U. S. Secretary of State Dean
Acheson Thursday to press Brit-
ish demands for a bigger voice in
Korea strategy following the con-
troversial Yarn river bombings.
The British demands were draft-
ed by the cabinet after it heard
an eye-witness report on Korea
from Defense Minister Earl Alex-
ander. Meanwhile, an uproar con-
tinued here over the bombing of
Communist power plants on the
Informed sources said Eden will
ask Acheson for assurances that
in any future attack such as the
Yalu raid Britain will be consulted
first. He also will press for closer
consultations between the United
States and her Allies on general
Korean strategy, the sources said.
The proposals to Acheson, based
on Alexander's personal report aft-
er a tour of the Korean battlefront
and conferences with UN comman-
der Gen. Mark Clark and U. S. of-
ficials in Washington, also include:
1. A British deputy commander
for Clark in Korea. Some sources
said Clark himself suggested this
2. A special United Nations com-
mittee to consider and advise on
the political implications of such
attacks as the Yalu raids.
Britain is more interested in be-
ing in on the planning and policy-
making for Korean operations than
in taking a bigger operational com-
mand. She feels the breakdown in
consultations with Allies in Korea
has been the fault of Washington
rather than officals in Korea, of-
ficial sources said.

—Members of the Congrega-

meeting of the religious organiza-
tion were urged to take immediate
and practical steps to disnose of
discrimination in the churches
*"Ri the light of the Christian prin-
ciple of non-segregated felowship."
The resolution said that "church-
es and church related institutions
have been slow in changing their
own discriminatory patterns."
DIFFERENT OPINIONS—Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., left, opening
the Eisenhower convention headquarters in the Conrad Hilton Hotel in
Chicago said "I am happy and proud to open officially the campaign
headquarters of the next President of the United States, Dwight
Eisenhower." At his press conference in Washington, Sen. Robert Taft
displays a collection of 604 four-leaf clovers, one for each vote needed
to win the Republican Presidential nomination, sent to him by Mr. and
Mrs. Charles Niederhouse of Waterbury, Ohio. Taft said if he wins the
nomination his campaign would feature all out attacks on "past sins
and disasterous results" of the Democratic administration's foreign
policies. (NEA Telephoto)

to remarks heard after the meet-
ing that if he is as good a coach
as ho is on his feet before a crowd
like that he is the kind of man
A question would be asked in
ail seriousness, which would be fol-
lowed by banter after he had an-
swered. For instance he stated that
one year he won .right games and
lost 2, and some one wanted to
knew how h« accounted for losing
the two. He was asked such things
as would he bring four more stud-
ents with him, or if he did not get
