AACHEN, Germany (UPI)——The American equestrian team claimed two victories today in the Aachen International Horse Show.

William Steinkraus, the U.S. team captain from Westport, Conn., owned one of them and George Morris of New Canaan, Conn., a newcomer to the team, owned the other.

DeGaulle Casts Lot With West

United Press International
PARIS (UPI) — Gen. Charles de Gaulle today will promise Secretary of State John Foster Dulles greater French political stability in return for American help in exploding the first French nuclear weapon an informed source said.

Dulles flew here Friday for a quick round of conferences today with the new French premier, Foreign Minister Maurice Couy Murville and other French officials. The pressing French demand was for admission to the exclusive American - British - Russian "nuclear club."

Dulles was reported to have strong reservations about this because of past French political instability.

Dulles met Friday night with NATO Supreme Commander Gen. Lauris M. Norstad and with NATO Secretary general Paul-Henri Spaak of Belgium this morning before his visit with De Gaulle. The allies were reported concerned over making France a stronger NATO partner.

Today's Dulles-De Gaulle meeting was the American government's first official contact with De Gaulle since he took office June 2 after the gravest crisis in recent French history.

George Has Strike While Fishing But Skin Diver Objects

HYANNIS, Mass. (UPI)—Fisherman George Vasquez of Waltham cast his line far and deep, trolled it slowly in and suddenly had a strike.

It was a big one without a doubt, thought Vasquez, who had switched to heavier tackle only minutes before.

His line jerked, the reel hummed and Vasquez set his heels firmly to avoid an impromptu dip in the ocean. It was the strongest cod the 53-year-old veteren angler had ever hooked.

He played it expertly, giving and taking at just the right moments. Slowly but surely the quarry was pulled toward shore, despite its powerful and almost frantic jerks on the line.

Vasquez wasn't to be denied.

The net was ready, the angler could almost smell frying fish, when suddenly the line took an un- [[cut off]]
