Young today in his bid to gain control of the New York Central Railroad. The wealthy Texans, Clint Mur- chlson of Dallas and Sid Richard- Don of Fort Worth, bought $20,000,000,000 worth of New York Central 'stock.

Young will be named chairman if his slate of directors is elected. Murchison and Richardson, who own vast oil and gas properties in the Central. In a statement issued at Dallas, Tex., they said they bought the stock "for investment purposes." Young, who was born in Texas and is a personal friend.of the investors, could count on their votes in- his effort to wrest control of the railroad from what he calls "Morgan banking interests." Miss Carson Wants to Quit 'Make Believe' By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (ffi— "Make - b licve is a wonderful thing, and I've loved it. I think it's good to devote 10 to 12 years of one's life to it, but now I want time for other things " This was the philosophy of Greer Garson who will end her MGM contract next Monday. She looks back on nearly 15 years with the studio, many of them fairly fabulous. After-'first winning attention as Mrs. Chips, she went on to a string of hit pictures. At least four were among the top moneymakers of all tjme: "Mrs. Miniver" earned a domestic gross of five million, "Random Harvest" .and 'Adventure 4!/f> million apiece and "Valley of Decision' 4%.miUipn. In recent years her films haven't been up to that standard, and she says that was port of tlvj reason for leaving the studio. She detailed .the reasons as she ro- clined' beside the swimming pool of her sumptuous home: '''It's so secret that I haven't been happy with the kind of pictures I have been receiving lately. The fact is that the studio is nol making the big, romatic type -of pi,ctur6 wbiqh ,*w$s ( my- .particular forte. , '. i ' "They, are concentrating on other things-musical spd'ctaples,- pic lures have been receiving lately, other -things-musical spectacles, pictures showing the training oi ruary. meetjng in the home of Mrs Wayne Turner.

I don't sing and dance with any great proficiency, and I don't fit into the second type of picture, As for thp films made abroad, they often involve being out the country 10 months or so and I don't feel I should be gone that long from my husband Texas moneyman Buddy Fogelsorj. "So we agreed to call off the contact, Actually it would have been up in June anyway. I was to dp a picture which was-shall we say-not quite right. It also involved/ being out of the country, and I didn't relish that haying just gotten back from England." The orange-haired star did a fine selling job on "Julius Caesar" throughout the Isle?. But she wouldn't let her enthusiasm over the'trip sway her decision, "I don't think long-term con .tracks are especially healthy for actors," she especially healthy for actors," she remarked. "They are a}l right for young players who are striving for a break. After they have made a success in one or two pictures, I think the studio deserves to cash in on what it has built. "But I have never been for long engagements. Every time 'i reached the middle of my con tract, the studio suggested that I make a new one for another s.even years. The last time that happened was when so. many of the stars were setting up their on companies, I wanted to be more independent, but my manager ad vised that the security of a studio contract was better."

Sparks, Jewell ymwb ,-sw GOPsCdn't Win in This Squabble By JAMS.E.MARLOW WASHINGTON, UP)— No matter who won the skirmish between Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) find 4he Eisenhower administration's secretary of the Army, Robert. T, Steven,,, the Republicans as a party wtne bound to lose K the fighting bo came a public, televised clash. The Republicans had cam- pa ignecl in 1952 on : a promise to get Communists out of the government. And McCarthy was de'mand. ing information on why it took the Army, under Stevens, more thatt a year to get rid of a major who had refused to answer questions about membership in subversive organizations. , A wide-open fight between M^ Carthy and Stevens on this point, in nn election year, might have split tho party into McCarthy Re publicans and Eisenhower Republicans. The showdown was avoided. Stevens, who had ordered his generals to stand back while he handled the senator personally in a public hearing scheduled for to day, agreed to give McCarthy what he wanted after talking with the senator two hours yesterday behind closed doors in the Capitol. McCarthy then called off 'today's hearing. . , . Afterwards, Stevens was represented as surprised that the outcome, was considered v a defeat for him. But the general impression w,as that he yielded and, in so do ing, crcate.d a bit of .a mystery. Did he decide on his. own to back down? He seemed determined up to a. minute before he saw McCarthy yesterday to go through with the showdown today, for when a reporter questioned him, he said: "I have no comment on anything. T,pmrnorrow. I'll have plenty of comment!" .',.':' Or did -President, Eisenhower who relurjied .to Washington just shortly before the lace-to-face Ste vens McCarthy meeting, tell his Army, secretary not to force an open break with -the senator? Or did Vice President Nixon arrange it? He .was close by while Stevens talked, with McCarthy. •-, The White House said the Prosi dent did not set up, the meeting. Sen. Mvindt .CR-SD) said the idea for the session was his—not Eisenhower's . or-Nixon's. Stevens said y . later he is not a rn,an who • surre/iders;• No rricjtteg what riame'is"placed on his action^ the' fact is he gave McCarthy just what McCarthy wanted: 1. McCarthy wanted the. names of : the Army people who handled the case of Mnj. Irvjng Peress, a New York dentist, ' who received an honorable discharge this month after refusing, 14 .months before, to answer questions about member ship in subversive organizations. 2. McCarthy wanted to question two generals who had had some part even though remote, in handling Peress' ease. Stevens had told the generals. not to appear before McCarthy because, he said, the senator, was "abusive." .Stevens, after .his session with McCarthy not only agreed to give the narhes of all those .connected with the Peress case but .let'Me- Carthy call them 'for questioning. And he said McCarthy could question .the: genera-Is too. Stevens said he's., "confident" now ; officers will not be "abused." Before it can be, established whether this was a surrender or a truce, this question must be answered; Will 'McCarthy pursue this investigation and call the witnesses pr will he let the Army make its own investigation and, perhaps, give the public a report? It's possible the Eisenhower ^administration;.-., which has had several bouts with McCarthy "in '."the past year, may have decided to have it out with him once for all in this case and then suddenly changed its miijd for strategic rea- sops. .. -. Several months ago, in discussing foreign affairs. Secretary of State Dulles said that, if war camq, the Eisenhower administra tion would choose its own battleground. ,In this dispute . with McCarthy thft Army had no choice of battleground. McCarthy chose it. These are the facts as given by the Pentagon itself: Peress was commissioned a captain la October 1952 and a few days later refused tp .answer the questions on subversive organizations. Nevertho less, 1 two months later he was called to active duty.' Jn, October 1953 i.e was ma,de -a^mjjgQr; On Dec. 30. 1953, Stevens said, the Army decided to Jet hirq : out because of an investigation it~ had made of him. On Jan. 18 1,854, the Army told him he must Jeaye by April. On Jan. 30 McCarthy called him for questioning. The dentist refused, citing the Fifth Amendment, to answer questions. Two days later he asked for and got an honorable discharge. McCarthy wants to know why it Jook the Army sp long to make up its mind abowt Peress. Stevens already has acknowledged there were oft spot? in the Army's handling of a cas,e !i<ke this. FREE SHAVE FOR RED AGITATORS—A Red head becomes a bald noggin as Tehran police apply this hair-raising punishment to Communist demonstrators, seized during Iran's recent-elections. Taking matters into their own hands, officials shaved the heads of culprits responsible for the uprising. Ford,GMfo Bootleggin , Vatican. 8ow.ee? said. Jajt thaj tfl.e J?oue, who Mas, jpdirectly DTEROIT, W) —Henry : Ford , president of the Ford Motor Co., and Harlow H. Cutrice, president of Genera] Motors Corp., have warned their dealers throughout the nation against the practice of automobile '"bootlegging." •' Both Ford and Curtice broadly hinted yesterday in letters to their new car dealers that if the practice continues to grow some dealers stand a good chance of losing their franchise. . • • .• Bootlegging is. the Wholesaling by franchised dealers of new cars to used car retailers who sell them at less-'than list price.. Protests filed ~ by•' franchised dealers to the manufacturers tp put a. half to bootlegging. . .'.•'• Charles : 'C. Freed*, -NADA : president, .and Frederick J. Bell, executive vice president, have been in Detroit conferring with -top auto executives oh proposals for, stopping the practice. Ford, in his letter to Ford and Lincoln—Mercury dealers, listed five elements.- about bootlegging which he said hurt .the dealer himself: - . •.--..: -. 1. Losing diroct contact with the ultimate, user of the car. 2. Losing the opportunity to service the new car .owner and build him into a long-time buyer. 3. Running the risk of having his product appear as "distress merchandise." 4. Undermining the basic principles of new car distribution. 5. Making it less likely IPr the customer to receive full benefit of his warranty and additional services. Curtice appealed to, the 'dealers to "cooperate with Gen'eral Motors in preserving the most valued franchise in tbO industry." 'At the same time ho -advised them GM will continue to review their performance in carrying.-out their obligations under the selling .agreements withxGeneral Motors. Curtice described car bootlegging as "a malignancy which, if it is not stopped, will eat away the very vitals of your business and ours. Some dealers, encountering competition from used car dealers with new cars to'sell, have complained of overproduction and maldistribu- tion of new cars. These, Curtice wrote, were not factors in the situation. "In fact," he said, "1954 models of General Motors cars were in the "bootleg' market before there | was sufficient production to supply our dealers with the necessary stock for display and sales purposes. :'even now some models in short supply because !of limited production are being 'bootlegged.' "Under these circumstances, there can be only one reason for this pr ; aetice^-the selfish desire on the. part of some dealers for a quie.k nominal ..profit -at the expense of the customer, the .public, the dealer organization, and the manufacturer."
