16 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3 V1952 Peter Edson Washington Column Elsenhower Sought Naming of Admiral to Succeed Him a* XATO Commander HWASHINGTON, (NEA) — The gtory didn't Ret out at the time, bat when the White House and the Pentagon were iooking over the possibilities for a successor to Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower as U. S. commander of the North Atlantic Treaty forces in Europe. Ike him- *e)f was pushing hard for the naming of Adm. Robert (Mick) Carney of the U. S. Navy. Admiral Carney was then and Is now commander-in-chief, Allied forces, Southern Europe. His headquarters in Naples arc known as HAFSE, as distinguished from SHAPE, the Supreme Headquarters, Allied Powers in Europe, which Ike set up. General Elsenhower had not known Admiral Carney until they started working together to build up Southern European and Mediterranean defenses. On that job, Ike came to have a high regard for Mick, and that's why the general thought the admiral would make him a good successor. Supporters of unification of the U. S. armed forces argue that this is an excellent example of how well unification is working in the top command, and in the field.

Lewis' gains for his United Mine Workers, in wages and fringe benefits, will be more than those In any other industry since the start of the Korean War, even if he Is forced to accept only the WSB-approved maximum of $1.50 a day, plus 10 cents a ton more in royalties for health and welfare.

A step-up of from 110 million to over 250 million American information "propaganda" posters, pamphlets and leaflets for worldwide distribution is being planned by International Information Administration for next year. These "one-shot" publications are designed to supplement the regular newspapers and magazines and "Voice of America" broadcasts to deliver specific American messages to certain areas with particular local problems. Over half of the pamphlets and leaflets are produced in New York. Others are produced in American "reproduction centers" In Europe, the Middle and Far East Some of this material is issued as of obvious American origin. Of a more secret nature are the "gray" and "black" propaganda which are of foreign origin. Aim of the whole program is to beat the Communist propaganda stuff which In much greater quantity now floods the Old World. Draftees Please the Marines Gen. Lemuel C. Shepherd, Jr., commandant of the Marine Corps, came back from his Korean inspection highly pleased with the way drafted men had fitted Into the leatherneck organization. The Marines had never had to use drafted men before, and prided themselves on being volunteers. In Korea, General Shepherd said he couldn't tell one from the other. And the same percentage of both draftees and volunteers were indicating a desire to reenJist. One of the toughest decisions the Marine command has had to make In Korea was the distribution of the new "bullet-proof" vests. Only a limited number were available. Should they be given to the Republic of Korea marines fighting with the American Marines, or should they be given to U. S. Army troops first? It was finally decided to supply the Army' first. Korean marines had to wait. 1 FOR RENT BY WEEK, DAY OR HOUR F. & H. DIXCEL Service 1401 Broadway—Phon« 878 TERRIFIC PRICE CUTS OH HEW FURHITORE! BUY HOW! SAVE 20%-30%-50%! LOW DOWH PAYMEHTS!
