PAOBTVM BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS Non-Commercial Contracts Assure Truman's Future Br ERNEST B. VACCAKO KANSAS CITY W-^Ex-Pri-sldcnt Harry S. Truman, it may now be disclosed, has been assured of contracts providing htm enough rnon- iry. for Ilia 'future needs and to permit him complete freedom to a«y; and-write, what he pleases. •. This reporter was told by one of .the former President's closest friends that Truman will write Ills memoirs for a New York publishing firin at a figure expected to run above halt a million dollars over a period of several years. In addition, Truman will mnkc periodical,. carefully- selected lecture tours along lines of his own choosing. The source for this report would not be quoted by name. Details of (he agreement are being handled for the former President by Matthew J, Connelly, his No. 1 secretary while in the White House. The source would not say whhl publishing firm is making the contract. Connelly, who flew heve Wednesday to help Truman set up private offices in ; the Federal Reserve Bank Building, Is returning east sometime this week. 'Will H»T» Own Office Connelly will have his own offices In New York city, serving as a consultant on government and business contracts, but he will continue to represent Truman as his secretary. The former President himself has refused to discuss his future since lie • has stayed out of the negotiations, but he did set a pnt- ^erri for; the contract. He believes 'anything' he undertakes must be in such strict conformity with the dignity'of the high offlco he held that no one.can raise any question about the propriety o'f what he does Truman has turned down more than one $100,000-a-yenr offer to Mrve.-as sales manager for manufacturing and other companies. Ho believes they might. 1 try to capi- talize'on the commercial value of a headline name in a way he con- Aiders beneath the dignity of a man who-hflsrserved as president. : The agreement under which be will write his memoirs and deliver lectures will provide sufficient income to maintain his private office In Kansas City and his home In nearby Independence, Mo., as well to travel, speak and do other miscellaneous writing. Ho will be able to speak freely on politics. And no one who knows him thinks for a minute he will maintain for long his sideline role when the political pots boil. The source of Truman's future plans said that the overriding problem now Is to get Truman nwny for a real vacation and rest before he undertakes his memoir and lecture assignments. The plans now being set up clo not contemplate his doing anything for the next six months other than reply to his personal correspondence and get adjusted to civilian life. To Take Long Cruise The plan Is for Truman to take n long cruise In the South Pacific with Mrs. Truman and Margaret as soon as It can he set up. There Is a possibility they will visit Hawaii. In New York last night, Truman was quoted In an American Broadcasting Company program as saying that Gen. Dwlght D. Eisenhower's trip to Korea probably did some good. Previously, Truman had twice referred to Elsenhower's campaign promise to go to Korea as dema- tfogucry. Bryson Rash, ABC correspondent, last night reported on an in- 'tcrvlew lie had with Truman Jan. 15. Hash, appearing on n television program, said the statement on Korea was not cleared for release unlit after Elsenhower took office «s president. Truman was quoted as saying In the interview; ! '. "It was dcmagogucry for a political nominee to -say he was going to Korea wllh the Implied promise to nil the wives, mothers and swccU hearts of the men nt the front that he would end the war." . Rash said Truman then added that the Irlp Itself "was not dcmn- gogucry. I wns In favor of dial nnd it probably dirt some good."

Railroads have learisti a, novel way of utilizing the medium. They have" small h'ansmittfcrs in fixed sheltered places so that a recorder sitting in a central position in the yards can check the numbers of passing freight cars and other data, and thus can coordinate the activity of shipping — the disposition and movement of all cars and engines. Still another industrial use' of television is being tried out in steel mills, where an operator can look directly into flaming furnaces and by manipulating controls can keep steel : flowing, for example, at • an e v e n pace through annealing furnaces. Lack-of observation had often hindered the speed of operations prior to this new video gimmick.... That scenery you see in background on many tk- sion shows may not be as solid as it looks. One of the latest ways TV people have found to cut costs is video scenery' made of plastics! Using this instead of wood or papier niache, set men make a'prop in half, an hour instead of two wteks: The plastic can be made flame-proof, is light and durable, and can be easily painted. Don't try to cut costs on TV repairs by doing the work-yourself or calling in an' unqualified serviceman. It'll pay you to have the service done right the .first time .. saving. Extra service calls.
