    Background: The free world, from London to Tokyo, showed its shock at the secret trial and execution of Hungary's Imre Nagy and three of his aides, in a variety of ways, including demonstration and official statements.

    One of the patriots shot was General Pal Maleter, who was arrested by the Russians while negotiating for the withdrawal of Russian forces from Hungary, during the Oct. uprising of 1956. His widowed wife and three children reside in the United States at present, to where they escaped in Nov. 1956 from Budapest, at the height of the rebellion.

    From the Hungarian National Council offices in New York, Mrs. Maleter made this statement in an interview with our reporter.

    "I appealed to Dag Hammarskjeold last September in an effort to save his life (her husband). In a cable to Bulganin, the then Russian Premier, Mr. Hammarskjeold conveyed my message. The Russian leader made no answer."
    With Mrs. Maleter are her children, Paul, 12, Maria, 10, and Judith, 8.
