/WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 4, 19W BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Eisenhower's Shadow Falls Across Opening of Congress By JAMES Associated Fre»s News Analyit WASHINGTON (AP) — The shadow of President Eisenhower fell across the opening of Congress just as vividly as if he had been there instead of in Florida recuperating from a heart attack. ' . Until he says whether he'll run again, the Republicans in Congress will be confused. They'll probably be more confused if he says he won't run. They have no other leader and none is in sight. .The Democrats are In & strange 1 position too. Eisenhower's answer on running ,may determine the spirit with which they fight in 1956. Their best chance, of winning the presidency is if he doesn't .run. So, in Congress, they cannot escape some uncertainty about themselves, their tactics arid their hopes until Eisenhower makes, his plans known. They have a program for themselves, and the best they can do,. whether or not Eisenehower tries again, is push for that and then go before the voters with the ,usual election year cry of "what good little boys are we." They'll-pot • shot at 'the party and the Elsenhower administration. But they're pretty longue-tied on the subject of Eisenhower himself and probably will continue to He's ; an Immensely popular president. Assaulting him might get a sour response. Gi/7, 77, Seeks Emancipation From'Cruel, Abus'we' Father LOS ANGELES l*t—lone Turner, 17, wants to be "emancipated" from her father. She says he's] "cruel and abusive." Miss Turner, who came to live with her father four months ago, asked yesterday in Superior Court for $500 a month support. .. The father, cafe owner Joseph Norman Turner, 47, denied he mistreated her or asked her to leave his Sierra Madre. home. Both Turner and his daughter said he gave her a JlOO-a-rnonth allowance. She.said a great deal of it went back to her father In fines. "He fined me for anything he thought I'd done wrong," she testified: "If I didn't-finish all the food from my plate it was lit If I left all the burners going on the Gooef Democrat STAFFORD, Va.

Turner said he inaugurated a series of fines to combat her tendency to be wasteful and lazy. Superior Judge Elmer D. Doyle took the case under submission. Miss Turner said she had been reared by her mother's parents. Dr. and Mrs. Samuel Harold Wiener of Chicago, after her parents were divorced in 1938. Weiner died last May and' her mother, Mrs. Clarice Cavanaugh, 43, of Culver City, urged her to visit her .1 ather. Sues for Alimony LOS ANGELES </P)—The former wife of movie producer Howard Hawks, 58. has filed suit for unpaid alimony 'and child' support payments. Mrs. Nancy Gross Hayward, 38, now the wife;of Broadway theatrical producer Leland Haywara, stated in the suit filed yesterday that ,Hawte-did not llve'*up to a 1848 divorce agreement. She said he owes WO.OOO in installments and 1500 a month support of their child •Kitty, ». 8 National Risk And Whether OT> not he runs they'll have to be careful about gunning for a man recovering from a heart attack, although they'll probably find ways of suggesting, if he does run, that a second term for him would be a national risk. When Eisenhower sends Congress his State, of the Union mes- ;age tomorrow—outlining his and the party's, program lor iilbti—he" give his fellow Republicans a sense of direction- for the" rest of the year. Pushing for _ his program—if he runs—is the best. thing they can do for themselves because then they can hope to ride into office on his coattails. If he doesn't run? The Republicans shudder to think of it. But strangely enough the two parties are so close in their thinking that any program coming out of Congress this year ,will be a combination of both parties' doing. This is. going'to make it tough on the voters when the politicians of both parties, once the campaign begins, ,start making claims about their achievements in Congress in 1956.

Senate Probers Renew*Hunt For Reds in Press and Radio WASHINGTON Wl — The Senate Internal Security subcommittee called a New York copyreader today as it resumed its hunt for traces of Communist infiltration of the press, radio and television. Starting three days of public hearings, the subcommittee said several witnesses had been subpoenaed -but named only James Glaser. Subcommittee sources said he was expected to be a cooperative witness. . • ' Olaser was identified by the subcommittee as a former managing editor of the Communist Daily Worker. That reportedly was in the mid-1930s. He once was a copyreader for the New York Times and now holds a similar job with the New York Post. A number of past or present em- ployes of the Times reportedly have been called to testify in the subcommittee' inquiry. The Senate group held closed hearings in New York a month ago, but has not jrtrntlfM Liltucjjn It qnfitlnrrrt at that time. Chairman Eastland (D-Miss) told newsmen in advance of the new hearings: • "We are Investigating, communism. The investigation Is not aimed at any one newspaper or at newspapers, but Is aimed at communism." He said the current hearings are part of a series "designed to follow up information developed last summer during the examination of Winston Burdett and other former members of a Communist cell in the Brooklyn Eagle." Burdett, a CBS newsman, testified last June that in 1937 he had joined a Communist unit at the now-closed Eagle. He named a dozen former employes of the newspaper whom he said he had known then as fellow Communists. He also named 10 other persons he said he had known or believed to be Communists in 1937-40. He said he broke with the Communists before joining the CBS staff.
