Members Get No Fay The members will serve without compensation. Ford Lulkart. who is on loan train (lie Cfvll Service Commission, will acl as staff director. In .reply lo questions, llagerly said Bernard I,. Gladleux, who was named as a consultant to the committee when it was set up by former President Truman, will not continue In (hat capacity. Asked why, Hagerty said he had nothing to say on that point. ' Gladieux formerly was connected with the Ford Foundation. Hagerty said Eisenhower plaris only one official function today, attending a White House reception for the chiefs of the diplomatic missions. Mrs. Elsenhower, too, still is fighting a cold but she also plans to attend the receplion, Hagerty said. In appointing the strategy board, Elsenhower implemented one part of a plan of operations for the cold war that he outlined during his election campaign. Speaking in San Francisco Oct. 8, he said: "Psychological Warfare" "In cold war, we do not" use . arsenal of arms and armaments. Rather, we use all means short of war to lead nien to believe in the values that will preserve peace and freedom. "The means we shall use to spread this truth are often called "psychological.' Don't be afraid of that term. 'Psychological warfare' is the struggle for the minds and wills of men." He went on lo outline a five- part program, one point of which called for creation of an agency to "handle Uie national psychological effort."

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 secretary. Sen. Morse fold the Senate it wasn't enough for Wilson to sell his G. M. holdings. Morse sTild Wilson's proposed sale of G.

"Why, you'd think we were taking his trousers off," the Oregon senator said scornfully. Sen. Lehman and WiDls Smith contended that even after Wilson disposes of- his personal G. M. holdings, he will 'have an ' Indirect interest in the motor flrnv through stock held by his wife nnd shares he proposes to give his children and grandchildren. Sen.
