Eisenhower moves Into Ihe White House. There are indications, lhat Eisenhower as President may not hold such conferences as regularly as President Truman and • as the lale President Franklin D. Roosevelt did before him. With sonic exceptions, Truman has met with newsmen once a week at no-QUestions-barred conferences. So did Roosevelt, whose general practice was to hold news conferences twice a week. James C. Hnserty. Eisenhower's press secretary, has declined to say in advance ol Inauguration day—Jan. 20—what the new President's policy will be with respect to news conferences, although Hag-••>•> ^'>i!<; (hat the policy lo ue followed already has been deter- mmed. Hagcrty refused to comment on a report published in the Baltimore Sun that Eisenhower may abandon the traditional question and answer. sessions in favor of periodical reports to the nation by 'elevision and radio. The policy will be announced after the general has taken office, and not before, Hagcrty said. Eisenhower's advisors reportedly are divided over whether he should continue Ihe custom of frequent news conferences, regularly held. • Some of Ihe' advisors are said to Favor discarding that practice altogether. Others are said to have urged a return to the Herbert Hoover' policy of having newsmen submit questions in writing and letting Eisenhower answer those he cared to—also in writing. One key Eisenhower aide had Indicated dial lie looks for the general to hold traditional type of civs conference, but perhaps not as frequently as once a week. Eisenhower himself had very little direct contact with the press during the presidential campaign, lie held a few news conferences during the early days of his bid for the White House—sessions "at which reporters detected some traces of Irritation on the general's part when he was pressed for elab- orallon of replies, Eisenhower also held » few otf- the-rccord sessions* with newsmen during; the campaign. That, however,-was a practice virtually all of them regarded as entirely unsatisfactory. Since the election two months ago, the general has held no news conferences although reporters re peateclly have tried through Hagerty to arrange a session. The general reportedly has laken the position.thaUhe has no Bulnor- ity until he takes office and is not going to speak out. before inangu tion nn the scores of issues which newsmen v. r ould raise.

Clements of Kentucky as assistant floor leader, or party In addition to the parly conferences preliminary to the organization of the new Congress tomorrow, leaders of the anti-filibuster rules proposals called another strategy huddle. •Humphrey said a decision would be made at IMs meeting on what *new riila to offer to replace the -present rule requiring the voles of 6-1 senators, two-thirds of the entire membership, to shut olf a fil- • Ibuster.

Their plan might snarl the start ot Ihe session, but Humphrey said the Intent was not to offer the rules motion until after new so ators had been sworn in. He also said he would be agreu- ab!o lo having other routine organizing preliminaries disposed ot Longshoremen Strike; 22 Piers Closed NEW YORK OP)—Three small un- o-:3 of longshoremen specialists struck today, and their picket lines closed down 22-Manhnttan, Brook- yn and Stalen Island piers within ,wo hours. The walkout threatened to develop Into large scale port, tleups In New Yok, Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore. xx A spokesman for one of the strik- ig locals said that "nothing \veigh- ablc Is moving.

On the other hand, a contrary ruling by Barkley could open the way for a, prolonged and bitter debate. QUICK Sp««rfy, «ff«cfiv« relief fco*n cougfit.

Truman Cautious but Optimistic On Outlook for Peace in 1953 By .TAMES AHI.OW WASHINGTON (ffl—On April 13, 1950, President Truman, In a ;onfident and optimistic mood, laid (he prospects for lasting peace were better than at any time since the start of the cold war In 1940. Two »ioiit)i!i later (he Communists began Ihe war In Korea. Nov/, nfier two years of denllng with them, the President Is a llttlo nove caiillous about his forecasts. He said he was not a prophet when newsmen asked him yesterday about the prospects for peace now. But under prodding he said he thought peace chances fn 1953 looked brighter than a year ngo all .around the world. He didn't give his reason for saying so except lo say he knows a lot of things he can't talk about. One of the reasons for his guarded optimism may have been (he kind of weapons Ibis country has been able to build, including (he atom bomb, which might act as » deterrent on Russian inten- llons. Optimistic Report For, not long niter the President spoke, his director ot defense mobilization. Henry H. Fowler. Issued a quarterly and flnsl report on this country's defense preparations. Fowler who Is resigning, said: .'I believe it is probable that llic technical superiority of our country, particularly in the field of atomic weapons, has been the decisive factor that has deterred the Soviet Union In the past few years from attempting aggression on n scale lhat might result In global war. ' "The superiority of our weapons has offset tho advantage which the Kremlin has In the size ot the military forces It can control. "If this country should ever permit the military technology of the Communist world to get ahead of our own. even If only in a limited range of offensive or defensive weapons, then we would be In Imminent peril of world-wide Communist attack." 'lliat Ihls country Is In belter shape for a big war_lhnn it was in 1050, when preparalions were pitiful, was amply set forth by fowler In his appraisal of what's been done so far In the program vhlch got under way after Korea But the bulk of the weapon, .'men this country needs. Fowler said, are still to be completed iven though the defense program las made Impressive progress The program, he said, !s In "mld- passnge." And just so we won't ba taking any chances anyway, Fowler mode clear, a master plan is being drawn up for military output on a huge scale If we do get' Into an all-out war. So what may have appeared yesterday as more Truman optimism, In spite of his error In 1950, was apparently the kind of guarded optimism which may hope for peace but wants to be all set for war if it comc-s. 666 LIQUID OR TABLETS IS YOUR ANSWER TO COLDS' MISERIES Hero's why!
