FRIDAY, JULY 8, 1549 Bt/VTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURTEK NEWS GOP in New York Seeks Candidate Several Considered At Dulles Says 'No' To Race for Senate By Jack Bell WASHINGTON, July 8. I/PI—A Republican search for a New York Senatorial candidate began all over again today as John Foster Dulles arrived to take over for a ^hile the seat vacated by Democratic Senator Robert P. Wagner. Despite signs that some pressure will be put on htm to run in November, Dulles all but closed the door on what would be his first campaign for political office. Appointed yesterday Gov. Thomas E. Dewey 'whom he advised i>! foreign affalr.s in two presidential campaigns*, Dulles said he. doesn't expect to serve beyond December l. He Is expected to be sworn In today. Whoever wins the November special election could be expectec to take over by December 1 for the remainder of Wagner's term ending in January, 1951. Dewey's action in appointing Dulles, was looked upon herf as an admission that the Republican? are having trouble finding a suitable man or woman for a race thst may provide a tip-off on hovi the balloting can be expected to go in next year's Yiajor party bat tie for control of Congress. Speculation on the nominee, t< be chosen in a September slate GOP convention, has ranged i wide tield. Many ','on.sidereti The names most often hear here, however, are those of Robei P. Patterson, former secretary o war; Oren J. Root. Jr., who heade the Wendell Willkie Clubs In 1940 William J. Donovan, wartime h « the Office of Strategic Service d Mary Donlon, New York stat ficial. Dewey apparently went agatns the advice of Senator Ives (R-NY and some other GOP leaders i: picking Dulles for a temporary ten ure. Ives was reported to have urge that the post be given to someon who could start running now fo election in November in.stead holding up the campaign until af ter th« September convention. After a conference with Dewej Dulles said he would vote for th Atlantic Treaty but would suppor military aid for Europe only limited form. He called for a ba! jnced federal budget, asserting tha the total proposed by Presiden Truman "is much too large." As a Senator, Dulles is experte to team closely with Senator Van denberg (R-Michl. an old frien His assumption of. Wagner's jo will give the Republicans 43 men bers to the Democrats 53, a pos sibly important change on son closely-fought issues. With the Republican Senator!: candidate still to be chosen.

Ohio. This 40-.vear-old ex-soldier solved Is personal unemployment problem y having himself buried alive in coffin six feet underground. For weeks, thousands of curious eople thronged to his temporary rave and dropped coins into a ontdbution box for the privelege ' staling down through a ten-inch bservation tmmel at Emmert's acid countenance. After 45 days Emmert emerged, ollected his financial tribute, and laimed a new "buried alive" record, [is chief complaint was that he ot "tired at looking at nothing ut faces." The whole experience typifies the esire of twentieth century man to scape from opi'essive reality. And t msy set a pattern for the man '1 the future. There is no reason why every •nan shouldn't, from time to time, ollow Emmert's example. All IK \ecds to "get a\vay from it all" s a shovel, a cheap pine coffin— nri a friend tf cover him up. The milk man could lower him fresh bottle of milk every morn- nff, and the delivery toy from he delicatessen could drop him a mm sandwich or a hard boiled 'SB once or twice a day. Tt would >e a wonderful way to spend a •estful vacation—right in vour own rack yard. And you wouldn't have o so through that annual areumrmt vith your wife over whether to go to the mountains or the seashore. What could be better? No worrisome sunburn, no vexing mostiui- toes. no hotel bills, no sore muscles. This relaxing fad or being buried alive might well sweep the country -xccpt for one thing: Every man has an uneasy feeling hat, once he was six feet underground, his relatives • and friends night decide he wasnt' worth the trouble of digging up. Overheard on a bus; "Women are just natural showoffs. Why do you think they wear dresses, use lipstick and let their nair grow long? Just to attract, attention—that's all." What can a man believe anymore? The corset industry says American women by 3.500,000 "faliies" year. And, as if that weren't bad enough, Manhattan butcher shops are now using rubber parsley in their display cases. A friend of mine was worried because his child was slow to learn to talk. All the neighbors' small fry of [lie same age were gabbling infantile gobblcdygook, but his boy remained stubbornly silent. Wouldn't utter a word, Then, one morning at breakfast, the child looked up and said gravely: "This is now." The papa is convinced now he's got a genius. The late Don Marquis, one o: the best loved writers of his time, once did a stint in Hollywood. Bui the film colony's method of work made him nervous—six weeks to do a script, tlien a month of idleness while his agent turned up another job. Marquis fled back to New York Later a friend, seeking his help on a script, called and said: ''You want to make some money?" "How much will It cost me?" asked Marquis cautiously.
