MeKlnney, outgoing national Democratic chairman, proclaim* his party "united 100 per cent (or the first time in 12 years," but he ha* run into a flat contradiction from a top aide of Oov. Adtai Stevetinon over who's going to run Stevennon'g 1952 presidential .com- paiffn. McKinney told n new* conference yesterday, "There can be only one general and he Is the chairman of the Democratic National Committee." But Wilson Wy.-itt, Stevenson's pcrnonat campaign manager, who Attended the conference, said "The campaign Is under the direction of the governor, and there Is only one general." The disagreement Indicated the Democratic National Committee will play n secondary role in the Illinois governor's bid for the presidency a* Democratic standard-bearer. Stephen A. Mitchell, a Chicago lawyer who Is Stevenson's own choice to succeed McKinney as chairman, also nttended the meet ing. He sided with Wyatt in the apparently good-humored argu ment, saying, "There's a cony mandcr-ln-chief and the others work for him, Gov. Stevenson is the commander-ln-chlcf." Mitchell said he would resign today as chief counsel for the House judiciary subcommittee investigat- ln« the Justice Department and will go to Washington Tuesday. His election to the national party chairmanship Is considered a formality. Mitchell said ho would keep the National Committee's headquarters m Washington. But Stevenson's own personal campaign headquarters will remain' In Springfield. It v w'Bs a reporter's question, calling "attention to the two campaign headquarters, that brought about the -exchange between McKinney nnd Wyatt. McKinney said Stevenson's Springfield headquarters, 'headed by Wyatt, would co-ordinate its work with the National Committee, which directs the efforts of all 48 Democratic state committees.

McKinney, who for practical purposes relinquished the party chairmanship yesterday and turned con trol over to Mitchell, said he would return to private business but would keep his hand in politics.

President faces an urgent five-billion-dollar tax decision as soon as he takes his oath of office. Thc rather vague talk about possible future tax reductions, coming 'out of both thc Eisenhower and Stevenson presidential campaign camps, strikes practical tax men here as interesting but somewhat beside the point. t That's because a lot of taxes ar« due to go dow.n shnrply, starting aS the end of next year, unless thc President and the 83rd Congress act affirmatively to keep them up. It will be up to tho new chief executive to tell the lawmakers what he wants—which may or may not be what he gets. It will bo to the President's advantage to submit his tax recommendations promptly because it takes a long time to grind a tax picked up in divorce granted a year ago in Blytheville.

I, Chancellor Smith, who said hc B-60 Bomber Tossed Out by Air Force mental bomber into the discard and is concentrating full attention on a single heavy jet type, the B-52 Stra- tot'ortress. Still about two years from service in combat units, the giant eight -jet B-52 has been ordered in substantial numbers from Boeing Air- plune Co., Seattle, Wash. It will replace the B-36 production is scheduled to end in 1954. An Air Force spokesman said it been decided not to put the B-60 into production. Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corp. has built two of the planes at its Fort Worth, Tex., plant and one has been test flown. The B-60 is a compromise ^between consolidated's B-36 and a more advanced model. The test program will continue. Like the B-52, which is an entirely new model, the B-60 has swept-back wings and eight jet engines which develop about 9,000 pounds of thrust each. The B-60, nevertheless, still is about 75 per pent a B-36 according to company sources. Nbw that no production orders can be expected for the B-60, consolidated planes full-speed ahead on a still secret supersonic bomber ' project. If successful, this would be the first bomber able to fly faster than the speed of sound and some years hence probably would become the B-52's successor. Superior speed was said to have been a big factor ip favor of the B-52 compared with the B-60. How much superior depends upon whether boeing or consolidated engineers are consulted. The B-52 is in the 600-mile an hour class. Laney in 1950.
