  • Description

    Public outrage at the Communist executions of Imre Nagy and three associates was expressed in two places in New York today--at the United Nations and at the Park Avenue headquarters of the Soviet delegation to the United Nations.

    At the U.N. the special committee on Hungary was called into Saturday session. Standing, from left to right, its members are Ernst Meinstrop of Denmark, R. S. S. Gunewardene of Ceylon, Mongi Slim of Tunisia, and Cesar Montero-Bustamente of Uraguay. The chairman, seated , is E. Roland Walker of Australia. For three hours the committee met behind closed doors to consider the executions. The executions show, said the committee, that a "reign of terror" still exists in Hungary--the same "rein of terror" which began when Soviet forces crushed the freedom revolt in the fall of 1956.

    The promised pickets appeared outside the Soviet headquarters at Park avenue and sixty-eight street, heelless of rain. The picketing was organized by the Federation of Hungarian Former Political Prisoners. They carried signs blaming the Soviets for the execution of Imre Nagy, Pal Maleter and the others. And they want it known that by their figuring, over two thousand political since the revolt of 1956. At the height of the picketing this afternoon about 250 marched and about 250 watched. A police force of sixty surrounded the Soviet building and there were no incidents--just the sorrowing pickets and their quiet courage.
