PAGE TWO (ARK.) COURTEK NEWS Mundt Heads Dulles For Wringer Again By JAMKS MARLOW WASHINGTON W-Secretflry of Stale Dulles, already thoroughly roughed up by the Senate, is headed tor the wringer again. Son. Mundt wants a shnkeup of officials who make State Department policies. The South Dakota Republican said he has the support of these three Republican senators, plus others: McCarthy of Wisconsin, Bridges of New Hampshire and Ferguson of Michigan. When he called for (he house cleaning Mundt said "scores, per-! haps hundreds of these top officials niond how much the State Department slumUl Kct. The department's operations for n whole year could be crippled if the committee culs down sharply on ljulles' request, Mundt, McCarthy, Bridges and Feruuson arc all members of the committee and, once they pet Dulles before them, they can quiz him about pniciically everything in the May Cut Money If (hey tell him how to run his department and he fights back, he miclit find his department's money cut. But he lias no assurance the money won't be cut even though tic acts like a lamb. he said: :"The purpose is to find" for (lie policy jobs people who are in "sympathy with Dulles and President Eisenhower." Several conclusions could be drawn from that statement: Mundt and his group think Dulles is incapable of running the Slate Department and they have to tol! him: or they have simply decided to tell him how to run it. Not First Time Although this crosses the Jlne which separates the powers of Congress from the powers of the executive branch of the government, It Isn't the first time this 1ms happened to Dulles. Only the State Department can negotiate agreements in • fove ; -n affairs. But a couple of weeks apo McCarthy said he tried to "negotiate" with Greek ship owners not to deal with Communists. He withdrew the word "negotiate" after a quiet luncheon with Dulles. That was only a mild episode compared with what happened to Dulles in the Senate a couple of weeks before that. McCarthy wouldn't take Dulles' Word. With Eisenhower's approval, Dulles picked Charles E. Bohlen as ambassador to Moscow and told the Senate Bohlen was definitely not a security risk. McCarthy challenged Dulles on that and wanted him to come back to. testify under oath. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee sent a two-man 'delegation to Dulles' office for a. personal look at Boll- Jen's file. It wasn't until the two-man team reported back that Bohlen was all right that the Senate upheld Dulles by approving Bohlen. Dulles must soon go before the Senate Appropriations Cornmiltce io explain why the Stale Department needs the money he will request to run It another year. The full Senate depends upon this powerful committee to recom- for Dulles, who can't go on definitely beiiv? stepped on without j being discredited. Dulles has brought in all new policy makers at the top except these three: Harold Under, Assis- tam -secretary for economic affairs, who is leaving .soon; Paul i 1 Nkxf. chief of the policy planning ' staff, also leaving: and an Army ; j officer. Col. Henry Byroade, assis- i I tant secretary in charge of Mid- ' ' eastern affairs. f I But s'nc-e Mundt wants "per- ' haps hundreds" of policy makers removed, he's talking about people below the very [op. Explaining that he had in mind those who had the same kind of jobs with ! Aclicson, Mundt said: j "If they're worth their salt they j must have been loyal to Acheson ! and enthusiastic about his policies. ! We want peonlc in there cnthusi- j astir about the new administra lion's policies." Emergency Lows Are Abolished AMMAN.

Postcard Not What it Used to Be WASHINGTON (/r»-The old gov-» ernmcnt post card Isn't what it used to be. For one thing, it now costs two cents instead of the previous one, and for another it has lost about half Its former popularity with the public which apparently doesn't go for the higher price. At the old penny rate, sales over a long period averaged, around four billion cards a year. In the last full year at one-cent, 4,183,748,200 cards were Issued. The two-cent charge became effective Jan. 1, 1952, at the midway point of the government's fiscal year ending June 30. ' Officials express the view that public demand for the two-center will level off somewhere around that figure. Apparently, many people just go ahead and write a letter at the three-cent rate, rather than use the card at two cents. Sales of three-cent stamps rose from 13,648,266,740 in fiscal 1951 to 13,892,925,160 in fiscal 1952. ' Wage Rates Edge Slowly Upward WASHINGTON (/P) _ w»g eiates are edging up slowly in the wake of the government's abandoning of wage controls. The Bureau of Labor Statistics laid Saturday that averagt hourly earnings roue one cent an hour t» $1.78 between mid-February und mid-March. Previously they had risen two cents from mid-January. Average hourly earnings were 10 cents higher In mid-March than a year earlier. Weekly earnings, including overtime pay, rose nearly a dollar to $72.10 in mid-March. This resulted ' primarily from an Increase In ,th» average work-week irom 40.9 to, 41.2 hours.
