WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY IB, 19W BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW8 -PAGB-THftBB— Scarcity of Leaders Is Big Weakness of ROK , By MURRAY FROMSON SEOUL (AP) — South Korea, like many of the new-risen republics of Asia, suffers from a glaring weakness — a scarcity of leaders. : Faced with the inevitable decision of finding a successor to President Syngman Rhee, Koreans are hard put to name a man who rpn begin to fill the shoes of the crusty old patriot who has led them since the country's founding in 1948. Rhee has avoided naming an heir apparent and the opposition clings to the same leaders who have twice failed to oust Rhee at the ballot box. The opposition Democratic party, recently formed from various splinter groups, will 1 try again this summer but even now Its leaders seem convinced of Hhee's invincibility and will probably offer only a figurehead candidate for the presidency. Korea's predicament is not unique. Who follows. Chiang shek on Formosa? Magsaysay in the Philippines? Nehru in India? Great emphasis is being placed here on the importance of the vice presidency.

Rhee has not declared he will try for the presidency again. But just about everyone says he Will. The President will be 81 March 26. and to strangers, it is impossible to fathom the grasp he has on his 20 million people. To most of them, -he is the only leader they know, the father of the Korean republic, the outspoken foe of the jnemy which destroyed South ti.0- rea and the man who fought the Japanese from the first day they occupied Korea at the turn of the 20th century. Perhaps a successor ' will be found In the group of military leaders who rank among the brightest—and certainly most pow. reful—men in South Korea. Gen. Chung II Kwon, the chief of staff, and Gen. Sun Yup Paik the 1st Army commander, have disclaimed interest in the. political arena. It seems logical to assume, however, that any candidate for -office—witr have a soft place in his heart for the army.

It looks like a square tray full of small disks, each, about the size of. a quarter. The heart of the'Bell Solar Battery ifl sand —common, ordinary sand. From sand, specially prepared silicon disks are produced (and this is where it took years of hard work and a lot of know-how) which are capable of converting sunlight directly into electrical power. NOW BEING TESTED How will this remarkable invention affect your telephone service? And how soon? It's still too early to say exactly. Right now, some of the answers are being worked out in the town of Americus, Georgia, where an experimental installation of Bell Solar Batteries is supplying power to amplifier stations on rural telephone lines. And doing it very well, it might be added. Something new under the Son! This is an experimental Bell Solar Battery installation at Americus, Georgia—where, for the first time, the sun is furnishing power directly to a telephone line. New idea! Sun power for your telephone calls Thanks to a remarkable telephone invention called the Bell Solar Battery, energy from the rays of the sun may someday send your voice over telephone wires ... by Don Davis, Telephone News Reporter Remember how you used to flash messages with a . mirror on a bright, sunny day? Or burn holes in dry leaves? Well, you were using "sun power." A simple form of it, yes— but it was still power converted from the ffesi ^ est source of energy man has ever known— the sun. For centuries, men have been intrigued with tlw idea of capturing and storing up DON DAVIS Old Sol's limitless energy. But up until just recently, no one had found a practical way to do it. Now telephone scientists have come up with the first workable device to do the job. It's called the Bell Solar Battery. Not since the birth of atomic power has any discovery promised more benefits. Certainly, no other form of power starts with greater natural advantages. Sunshine is super-plentiful and it. doesn't cost a dime. LOOKS ARE DECEIVING The Bell Solar Battery ieu't nearly as awe- Simple in appearance, fhi5 Solar Battery 're made up of 432 wafer-thin silicon disks electrically linked together. There are no moving parts Jo wear out nor any corrosive chemicals. OUT OF THIS WORLD Like many telephone inventions, solar batteries will have uses in other fields. Indications are that they can be used as a power supply for low-power portable radios and similar equipment. And like so many other telephone inventions, the Bell Solar Battery is dramatic proof of the lengths to which telephone scientists will go to find new ways of improving what is already said to be the finest telephone service in the world. This time, they've even brought the sun into the act. Southwestern Bell —Arkansas • Ctll By Number... It't Twiet At F»tt
