The say first the vaccine was safe health service is a part of her department. If the so far unexplained actions of the health service were intended to keep from alarming parents, they must have had the opposite effect in many cases. After hearing the government then that it shouldn't be distributed, then that it should, then that it shouldn't, many parents no doubt have been torn between: (1) a hope they might protect their child from polio by vaccination and (2) fear,their child might be endangered if vaccinated.

O'NEILL WASHINGTON (UP); — Some vaccine manufacturers today', described the government's proposed i I new safety standards for Salk shots as "fantastic" and "impractical."

Mr. Griffin, native of Missouri, is a graduate of Iowa State College and took post-graduate work at Western Michigan College. He completed training for professional leaders in scouting at Mendham, N.

He took up his first Scouting job in 1938 as field scout executive in Kalamazoo, Mich., was a scout executive of the Wabash Valley Council at Terre Haute, Ind., and in 1953 joined the national staff of Boy Scouts in his present position.

Three of the five are relatives of the late Claude A. Rankin, who died Jan. 2, one day after he was sworn into begin his sixth term as land commissioner. They are his two daughters, Mrs, Betty Harris a/id Mrs. Arnelle Carroll, and his fcother, Ben Rankin. Ben Rankin, charging that he was the victim of the "political ax" promptly announced that he will run for the land commission er's post in the 1956 Democratic primaries. Also discharged were Percy Cato and Thomas McGuire, 'and a sixth employe, Arnold Myers, announced that he would retire on July 1. All of the five discharged workers ,.,eceived two weeks notice. • The land commissioner's job has been a matter of court contention since Rankin's death Former Gov. Francis Cherry named Jones to ship. This ^government has taken no firm position on the eventual status of Formosa, but has a treaty with Chiang Kai-shek pledging to help defend it from any attack by the Chinese Reds. Britain has been cool also toward Chiang's claims to the offshore islands of Que m oy and Malsu. Th'e Eisenhower adminis tration has .declined to say whether it would help to defend them. Except for some shelling of these islands, the situation in the Formosa Strait has been relatively clam in recent weeks, with Pei- ping soft-pedaling her pledges to conquer Formosa. Postal Pay Veto Likely to Be Susfaind By JOE HALL WASHINGTON Ml — The Senate appeared likely today to rebuff lalf a million postal workers and give a victory to President Eisenhower by sustaining his veto of a postal pay raise. The post office workers may still :et a pay boost somewhat smaller han'the one averaging over 8$& per cent which the President /etoed. Present pay scales were ixed in 1951. Should the Senate override the veto, the House would still have to come through with the same two-thirds majority. A Senate vote to sustain the veto would make it unnecessary for the House to act. Three hours of debate were al- loted before the showdown, expected late in the afternoon. Democra ti c leaders expected practically all their 49 members to be on hand and ready to vote to override. One member who has been absent throughout the session recuperating from an operation, Sen. Kennedy (D-Mass), returned to the capital yesterday. However, even if all 49 Democrats voted for the bill, it would be necessary to get 15 of the 47 Republicans to pass it over the President's objections, assuming a full attendance. Republican leaders said they were certain far fewer than 15 GOP senators would desert the President, and they expected to pick up two or three Democratic votes. ; GOP senators, it was learned; were being told they should vote, to sustain the veto/ if they want- Eisenhower to seek ' a second term.

The Soviet Communist party newspaper Pravda fired an editorial broadside a g a i n e t the harassed government of Premier Mario Scelba and Moscow radio beamed it abroad in the growing campaign to "keep the Yanks out" of Italy. There were reports American troops would be shifted to the north of Italy from Austria when four power occupation of that country ends. DfespitR the bitter Communist ipropoaganda ' blasts, the hard- pressed Red-busting prerinier was reported sticking firmly to his position that Italy must continue to march as a North Atlantic Treaty Organization ally of the West. The Communist campaign was an open attempt to extend behind the NATO front lines the "neutrality" Austria accepted In exchange for freedom from military occupation, informed p o 1 i 11 cal quarters said. They linked it with this week's visit to Belgrade by a Soviet delegation and predicted the high Russian leaders would try to lure Marshal Tito into a neutralist buffer zone between Western Europe and the Soviet satellites. It was also linked with Russia's attempts to make German neutrality the price of its unification.

Little Rock dealers said yesterday the price of nationally- advertised brands f e 11 f our cents on Fri da y. Retail grocers o ffe red a vacuum packed coffee at 82 to 89 cents a pound and sold coffee in bags as low as 72 cents "a pound. The latest price reduction was the third since the first of the' year here. The prlce- per-pound dropped 12 cents during February, and has declined 3 3 cents over the past 10 months. the American trop shift was being planned and said "there can be no doubt that such a measure' would increase the danger of Italy's involvement in military- adventures fraught with grave consequences." . ..'.-'• .-;! • Communist Truck Dispute Brings Counter Charges LOS ANGELES,' (UP) r- newspapers, here AFL, teamsters and the California Trucking association charged each other today with refusing to negotiate on movement of "essential" goods as paralysis from the, , week-old truck strike spread Wool, .,_> ---- . throughput 11 (We stern states.
