Rather, we use all means short of war to lead men lo believe In the values that will preserve peace and freedom. "The means we shall use to spread this truth are often called "psychological. 1 Don't be afraid of lhat term. 'Psychological warfare' is the struggle for Ihe minds and wills of men."

WILSON (Continued from Pag« 1) In companies: doing business with the government, there will be no approval of their nominations " Duff referred to a federal law which bars U. s. officials from transaction business with firms in which they have been an indirect financial Interest. There was no indication that Talbott was willing to assume the tax burden involved in selling about 2,000 Chrysler Motors and 12,000 Owens-Corning Fibre Olass shares he said he bought long ago for about $2 a shave. Wilson got senate approval by a wide margin, but some senators who voted for him made it clear they were doing so only because they felt_ Eisenhower should have the man he wanted for defense secretory. Sen. Morse told the Senate it wasn't enough for Wilson to sell his G. M. holdings. Morse sTild Wilson's proposed sale of G. M sfock wasn't any :ncrlfice, because the estimated $600,000 in taxes Wilson will have lo pay conies out of his profits in selling the stock for more than he originally paid for-it. "Why, you'd think we were faking his trousers off," -the Oregon senator said scornfully. Sen. Lehman and Willis Smith contended that even after Wilson disposes of'-.'his pereonn! G. M. holdings, he will'have'an'Indirect interest in the motor firm'through stock held by his wife and shares he proposes to give his children and grandchildren. Sen. Lariger (K-NO) said it was unreasonable to expect a'nominee to subject;himself to large tax losses in order to win confirmation. Sen. Hendrickson (R-NJ) told. Wilson indirectly lhat he can't run the Defense Department the way he did General Motors. "He himself may very soon learn that the're Is a real, difference be* tween the talents of corporate management and the art—the great art (if leadership in government," he said. Sen. Byrd (D-Va), who first challenged Wilson's right to the defense port, said the nominee had acted with "admirable patriotism" in agreeing to sell his stock. RT,YTHEVTU,E (ARK.)
