PAGE TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW! Ike Still Wants Wilson White House Reports (Continued from Page 1) Previously scheduled for today, the BOSS loo would have given Wilson an opportunity to after his previous tost!nioriy. There were sie n& he would do BO. Wilson's JKIRJC was omitted when President Eisenhower sent to the Senate yesterdays list of eight Cabinet and one sub-Cabinet np- polntees which Republicans lind hoped would get immediate approval, Sen. Morse (I n d-O r e), who blocked the confirmation move with an objection, snld he was ready to vote today,on the nominees. Barring unexpected lengthy talk, they might all be confirmed by nightfall. Morse was able (o block action yesterday because the situation required suspension of Senate rules which say nominations sh'flH not be acted upon the day.they are submitted. This required unanimous agreement and Morser wouldn't agree. Meeting Postponed SaUonstaH said he had decided to postpone the armed services committee hearing on Wilson be cause (1) the proposed defense cecretary had not been formally nominated and (2) Herbert Browiv jell Jr., Incoming attorney general, had not hod time because of the Inaugural ceremonies to complete his study of the situation. WiJson's proposed nomination han been challenged by tin Increasing number o< senators because a fedora! law bars any U, S. offletn from dealing with n firm In v/htcb he holds even an indirect financial Interest Wilson formerly was president of G.M., the Defense Department's largest private contractor. Sallonstnll said he did not know the significance of Eisenhower's failure; to include Wilson among t those formally nominated yesterday. •".'.'•- 1 Presidential Press Secretary Jamea c. Hagerly safd the name was omitted because the Senate committee was still studying the mutter. This took on something of the look of a vicious'circle, for the Senate group had undertaken the Inquiry lust week bccnuse .of the new President's expressed desire that all of his Cabinet choices lie confirmed on inauguration day. Normally, hearings arc not held tmlH alter formal nomination. SaltoustftH said he can't be certain that fhe postponed hearing will be held Friday if there'Is no offlcfarnominatlon before [hen, Saltonstall indicated, however, he believes Brownell will be ready by Friday to offer sonic sort'of Holu- llori In a situation where inrmy senators said they believed Wilson either! will have to sell'his stock holdings ;pr face rejection, It his nomlnntion is .forthcoming. To DlMiuftllfy Self? Sen. Potter (R-Mlch) told a reporter it is his understanding Wilson Is prepared to tell the committee he would disqualify himself any matter pertaining- to General Motors, a reversal of the stand " Wilson'previously took In testifying before, the group. ' "If he does this, I will vote for him and I believe he will be confirmed," said Potter, a new member of the committee. However, Sen. Byrd (D-Va) cited a law which prohibits any federal • official from dealing wi(h a 'firm in which he holds even an indirect -. financial interest! I Wilson, meanwhile, shed no light on ttie possibility th'at h« might atop entirely out of the picture. Shortly before Eisenhower left the Inaugural BnU at Georgetown University Gymnasium early today, he chatted earnestly for five minutes with Wilson. There was no Indication what rhey talked about. Byrd and other senators, Including some Republicans, 1 were known to believe that unless Wilson disposes of his stock, ne will not be confirmed by the Senate. Morse, whose fiction in objecting yesterday left Elsenhower temporarily without n cabinet, said* his reason for blocking action In the first place was that he hadn't had n chnnce to read the record of Committee hearings on the Cabinet nominees. HI.* reason for blocking action In the first place, he said, was that he, hadn't had a chnnce to do OS. Ho told the Senate yesterday he would be rciuly to vote today nnd there seemed little opposition In sight for the nominees, with the possible exception of Ezra Taft Benson, appointed secretary of agriculture. LEGISLATURE (Continued from Page 1) provide for the 'committal to the slate penlntentinry nny husband who refuses to support or abandons his family. Chancery Judges could commit offenders on contempt citations without Jury trials. This InRl provision brought opposition from two senators—Guy Jones of Comvny and Q. Hyrtim Hurst of Hot Springs — on the ground Hint It Is unconstitutional to semi nnj'one to Hie state prison farm without a Jury trial. The vole on the bill wns 31-2.
