The New Daily April 26th 1960

The New Daily The Only Daily Newspaper in Great Britain Independent of Combines and Trade Unions No. 2. INLAND POSTAGE 2d. TUESDAY, APRIL 26,1960 REG 1 aIRS aNew spaper0 P ° 3d. net Thinking Points rjpHE “Teddy Boy” problem in Britain is described by “Wo Id Health”, a World Hea.th Organisa­ tion magazine published in Geneva, as “Teddyboysia Britannica”. Dr. John Burton, of the organisa­ tion. said that a recent exam.nation of Army recruits shov.ed that t5 percent, of a cro-js-s.c.ion of British youth conformed to three or more of the characteristics cf a “Teddy Boy”—long jacket, narr. w trousers, dark cloth, thick-sol-d shoes and fancy waistcoat.” He attributed the callousness and exhibitionism of “TedJyLoy.ia Britannica” to “precocious ado e> cence result.ng from better nut. i- tion, to deprivation of maie.nal affection, to yearning for stabi ity and gaiety which is supposed to have preceded the first war, and to the normal swing of a pendulum temporarily arrested by the last 'war.” QHOULD he have added some­thing about the State’s ever- increasing expenditure of the tax­payers’ money on education and weuare ? E.T.U." Sidesteps Again Communist chiefs of the Elec­trical trades Union have again stalled a show-down over the baJot nggiug row. T.U.C. chiefs yesterday flatly rejected the b.T.U.'s excuse th_t the possibility of legal action by one of their members has rendered the whole situation sub judice. But they agreed to recommend the T.U.C. General Council on Wednesday that another short “period of grace” should be granted to allow the E.T.U. bosses to choose between suing their accusers or submitting to an inquiry uy atop lawyer. Mr. Frank Haxell, the E.T.U.’s Communist secretary, gained the iextra “grace” by pleading that Les Cannon had rendered the position sub judice by instructing a solicitor to seek restoration of his union rights. Cannon was suspended from holding office in the union for five years as a punishment for criticis ng the conduct of a ballot. But he has since offered to withdraw his action on condition that the E.T.U. accepts an inquiry. The T.U.C. Financial and General Purposes Committee con­sidered Mr. Haxell’s letter yester­day m reply to their ultimatum that the E.T.U. should decide by today whether to take legal action against those who have made the allega­tions or submit to an inquiry. The five members present agreed that Mr. Haxell’s “delaying tactic” should be rejected, and that the T.U.C. should insist that the E.T.U. should choose “in principle” between the two proposed courses of action. Sir Thomas Yates, who presided over today’s T.U.C. talks, said afterwards: “The E.T.U.’s delay­ing tactics should be disregarded. The General Council should insist that the E.T.U. must choose between the two courses proposed.” KRUSCHEV RENEWS BERLIN THREAT ON EVE OF SUMMIT No “Access To The City” the|"|N eve of the Summit Conference Mr. Krushchev yester­day repeated, in a speech at Baku, his warning that if the Western Powers would not seek an agreed solution with Russia on the prob­lem of a German Peace Treaty then Russia “would go it alone and conclude a peace treaty with East Germany,” says Moscow Radio. Mr. Krushchev added that if the Western Powers did not sign a peace treaty with East Germany they would forfeit the right of access to West Berlin “by land, water and air.” But, Mr. Krushchev added, he believed that commonsense would prevail at the forthcoming East- West “Summit” meeting. He be­lieved that after the meeting rela­tions between the /“Big Four” Powers would D ?better man they were before. Speaking of Germany, Mr. Krushchev said that Russia would spare no efforts at the “Summit” meeting to persuade her partners of the necessity of concluding a peace treaty and of upsetting a free city of West Berlin. The sig­nature of a peace treaty with East Germany would put an end to the terms arising from the surren­der. The rights of the Western Powers, obtained as a result of Nazi Germany’s surrender, Mr. Krushchev continued, “including the right to maintain the Occupa­tion Regime in West Berlin, would also lose their validity and beome invalid with respect to East Ger­man territory. With a peace treaty signed. East Germany would exer­cise sovereign rights over the whole of its State territory. If the Western Powers do not choose to sign a peace treaty with East Germany, they will lose the title to the rights they want preserved.” Speaking of the need for co-exist­ence, Mr. Krushchev called for ex­panded trade and other relations between the Eastern and Western blocs and added: “There is no other way out, because the other way means war.” As regards international prob­lems, Mr. Krushchev said, the situ­ation was good. His tours, as well as Mr. Macmillan’s visit to Rus­sia, all signified a relaxation of in­ternational tension. Of his talks with President Eisenhower. Mr. Macmillan, Gen. De Gaulle, Pre­sident Gronchi of Italy, Mr. Nehru, President Sukarno of In­donesia, Gen. New Win and U Nu. of Burma, and the King and the Prime Minister of Afghanistan. Mr. Krushchev said:— “We gained the impression that they undertand the need of faci­litating a further relaxation of in- ternationl tensions and of solving internationl disputes through nego­tiation and not through war. I think that the favourable progress of international relaxation will continue further.” Turning to the “Summit” con­ference. the Soviet Prime Minister said: “We shall togo Paris with the sincere determination not only of contributing to the overall im­provement of the internationl situ­ation. but also of doing everything towards reaching understanding with the heads of States and Gov­ernments of the Western Powers and of securing some progress in the urgent problems which are knocking at the door, as one might say.” The first thing Mr. Krushchev said, was to break the deadlock over disarmament which he de­scribed as “the great roadblock in the way of strengthened peace on this planet.” He expressed the hope that differences of opinion in the Geneva talks on nuclear tests could be overcome in the near future and that a treaty on the dis­continuance of tests could be con­cluded. The New Daily—Short Supply T44TANY people were unable to obtain a copy of yesterday’s New Daily. The television and radio broadcasts created a big de­mand which we are not mechani­cally equipped to meet. In fact, we received something like ten times the number of orders we could supply and because the scal­ing down process was not drastic enough in the early hours of the morning we regret that some areas received very small supplies in­deed. Will anybody who failed to get a copy but particularly wishes to seethe first issue send a stamped, addressed envelope to The Pub­lisher, The New Daily, 175 High Holborn, London, W.C.l. marking the envelope “No. 1” in the top left hand corned, and copies will be sent free of charge while the few reserves we have last. Our target for the first six months of existence is a net paid sale of 50,000 copies per day. This means that hardly any copies will be available on newsagent’s coun­ter for chance sales, and we there­fore urge those who wish to seeThe New Daily regularly to place an order with their own news­agents. A simple way of doing this is to infill and return to us the form on Page 2 The Editor is most grateful for the many telegrams and messages he has received, NEWS SUMMARY" HOME NEWS Mr. Carron, the trade union leader, attacks shop stew­ards.

MORE THAN 1,000 KILLED IN EARTHQUAKE TEHERAN, Monday, j g ETWEE N 1,000 and 1,5C0 people are believed to have been killed and 3,000 injured in the earthquake at Lar, 550 miles south of Teheran, according to Per­sian Red Cross estimates in Tehe­ran tonight. A Red Cross spokesman, who said that damage, was colossal, would not confirm a reported figure of 1,500 dead, but added: “I can­not be sure that this figure is cor­ rect—it may even exceed this.” All reports from the area which indicate that the town which has a population of about 15.000, has become a second Agadir—the Moroccan town devastated by an earthquake earlier this year Most of the dead are said to be Aomen and children. Yesterday was children’s day. Most of the children of Lar were assembled for a cele­bration in a school building when the first tremor hit Lar. Most of them are believed to have died when the building col­lapsed. Other reports reaching Teheran from the earthquake area said thr.t by noon, 400 bodies had been re­moved from the rubble. Three hundred bodies were buried this morning to avoid the danger of an epidemic. An eye-witness report received in Teheran from a Red Cross offi­cial in Lar, said: “This is the worst scene of disaster and devastat.on I have ever seen. All tile houses were razed to the ground. The Red Cross eye-witness in Lar reported that relief aircraft were notable to bring in big enough amounts of supplies, or to evacuate enough wounded, because of the small size of the airstrip. He said: “Each plane can only take six wounded, and the hospital at Shiraz is not capable of handling them all as they in.”come The ''eye-vvitness added: “I am afraid large numbers of wounded, particularly women and children, will die unless we find away of evacuating them faster. Guaranteed T.V. Sets Urged A two-year guarantee for tele-vision sets was called for by Mr. Cecil Walton the President, at tho Annual Conference of the Radio and Television Retailers Associa­tion at Bournemouth yesterday. The time had come, he said, when they should be able to offer a fully comprehensive guarantee.
