In the first place he considered her five foot height a fitting contrast to his own .six three; ! She was perfectly -proper lioned, her black hair carefully waved, her dark, large eyes spark led with he;- inward summation. Al so, Nancy had a brain she u-jcd. As society editor of the Colorado City Flume, she was well aware of happenings in one level of local life. As, daughter of Otto Drover, Chief of Police,' she was equally AVCll informed of events in another. And. on ocasions when the two worlds overlapped, her knowledge could be invaluable. "I like to cry at weilriings," she admitted. "And this one especially 03 years, had warmth in his c.ves for his daughter, and for 'Jim a glint which would have chilled a frozen ;cod. It wasn't, as Dunn had assuncd himself, anything really personal. Drover simply had a low opinion pf cops, an even lower opinion of private detectives, and a socially built, extra low compart mcnt for a private cop interested in Nancy. *Thc two men exchanged one brief pumping motion v,=hicb ended on the downward swing "so their hands snapped back to their fides with a minimum of lost effort. "Nice seeing you again," Jim said. "Yeah," Drover said. "You look pretty in those pants." "Thank you. But really you should see me when I'm dressed up. A fine; figure of a man," Jim said-modestly. "Stop it! Both of yOU,"' Nancy said. Drover patted his daughter's shoulders, and Nancy was quick enough to brace, herself for the show of affection.

McCarthy (R- Wis) in a iifo-and-dcalh struggle. This 54-year-old wealthy businessman who came here to be secretary of the Army was lead' ng an actively but seemingly quiet ife in the Pentagon until MeCar- :hy hit him square on the hoad, and in public. Most men might have felt the nirnp right away. Stevens, n«;r- laps because he was a political novice, seemed not tti know ho was it and spoke at first as though ic had scored a victory. He soon learned his action was generally considered a surrender. It was reported he sobbed -Thr>n ic got indignant, then mad.

But the day before this meeting Stevens accepted' an invitalion to unch with McCarthy and lhr%; Republican senators on his comnittee: Mundt (SD) Dirksen ' (111) ind Potter (Mich).

Then Steven's heard how the newspapers were regarding the memorandum.; Stevens surrenders. Mundt and Potter came to his r'sc-ue saying there had been agreement on fair play for -Army witnesses. Stevens appealed to President Eisenhower for support and got it. Biit what 'could Stevens do now? What• the' public didn't know was that Stevens,. McCarthy and Roy Colin, chief counsel of McCarthy's investigating committee, had had a number of conversations about G. David Schine, Conn's pal and a non'paid worker for the committee until he was drafted into the Army. There were rumors Colin had interceded with Ihe Army for special treatment for Schino. Finally a Democratic member of McCarthy's committee, Sen. McCiellan of Arkansas, repeatedly asked the Army for a report -on all this. But between McClellan's first request'in January and last week, when the 34-page report was release, Stevens had been hit with he McCarthy coconute at the un- lorgetlable luncheon, The report said McCarthy and Cohn first tried to get a commission for Schine,- had later asked special consideration for him, and hot 'Cohn. had threatened to get Stevens' job and wreck the Army Mr. and Mrs. Alford Cummings Mr. and Mrs. Harold Parker, Mrs. Julia McGough, Mrs. Ike Avery, Mrs. W.

But they have had scantt success. It's hard to sympathize- with the plight of the movie stars, especially their six-figured salaries are publicized so widely. I talked to several internal revenue officials about the matter, and (hey agreed that the situation cannot be charged under• present laws. "The model's legs can't be de- preeialed becausa they are not capital assets," one of them commented. "It's the same way with actors.
