W. (Burley) Chism, District 19 chairman o! the American Cancer Society. Harry M. Dawdy of Jefferson City, executive vice president of the society's Missouri division, and Mrs. Julia H. Morgan, field representative from Dexter, will be special guests at the meeting. Pointing out that cancer is of growing, concern to Pemiscot County, Chism said 33 residents died of cancer last year and 116 patients had been transported to St. Louis and to the Ellis Pischel State Cancer Hospital in Columbia for free treatment at a cost of more than 51,400. DISARMAMENT (Continued from Page I) ground inspection teams, to reduce "the danger of surprise nttack" and lead to easing tensions. 2. If the air and ground inspec' tion system could, be put into "satisfactory o p er a t i o n," the United States would be "prepared to work out . safeguarded arrangements" to freeze stockpiles of atomic weapons so that future production of atomic materials could be used for peaceful purposes, 3. Disarmament negotiations in the immediate future should concentrate on limiting arms rather than on conrtolling or reducing military manpower. 4. If international progress could _be made to this point, the United 'tates would be prepared to agree that inspection and supervision practices would apply to foreign as well as those on a country's own soil. be more commotion around his office than perhaps ever before. As for whether he himself had suggested that Nixon consider standing aside this year, Eisenhower said emphatically he would not presume to tell the vice president what he should do. Eisenhower then said he has told Nixon that he should be one of the comers in the Republican party—that he is young, vigorous, healthy and deeply dedicated. It was at this point that Eisenhower said he has told Nixon to chart out his own course with respect to his future, and tell the president what he wants to do. Eisenhower repeated that h e neveT would tell Nixon what he. should do. Political Questions Today's questions regarding Nixon were prompted in part by Eisenhower's statement at his news conference last week that he would have nothing to say about his choice of a running mate until the Republican national convention meets in .an Francisco next August. He coupled with that a remark that it is traditional for the convention to pick its presidential nominee before there is any talk of a running mate. A good many questions today- dealt with the political situation. One was whether Eisenhower felt the state of his health should properly be a campaign issue as many Democrats have said it will be. The President said he thinks it is the business of the American people to know just what the state of his health is. He said he has tried his best to be honest about the matter. If you look at the record, Eisenhower said, four presidents have died in office, including one who was shot, during the last 50 years. (Actually, only three presidents! have died in office in the last 50-1 odd years. They were Presidents Franid D. Roosevelt, Warren C.I Harding and William McKinley. The latter was assassinated.) The conference dealt with these I other matters: Obituary WORLD PEACE Eisenhower said he believes the people everywhere in the world have awakened : to the fact that another global war 1 is well nigh unthinkable On the other hand, Eisenhower said the cold war probably will go on for some time and proceed in several directions. He predicted a very great broadening of that contest, but said it does not necessarily carry the threat of a major war. • * * BULGANIN — Eisenhower said he has no immediate plan to invite Soviet Premier Bulganin to the United States, but he expressed pleasure over reports from Moscow that Bulganin gave a heartening reception to Eisenhower's proposal to bait production of atomic materials for weapon purposes. The President also noted that this time his note to Bulganin, made public by the White House yesterday, got full publicity in Moscow. His earlier letter to Bul- ganin, rejecting a Soviet proposal for a 20-year friendship treaty, was given no publicity in Russia until a. good many days after its delivery. * • • BRICKER — Eisenhower repeated that he has no objection to any , constitutional amendment which would say simply that any treaty not in consonance with trie Constitution should be declared null and void. He declined to make any specific comment on a revised proposal orf an amendment which some Congress members say would limit treaty making powers. Eisenhower opposed—and the Senate killed—an original proposal by Sen 'Bricker (R-Ohio) dealing with 'he same matter. MIDDLE EAST — Asked for comment on the dismissal of British Lt. Gen. John Glubb as commander of Jordan's Arab Legion, Eisenhower replied that anyone who would minimize the consequences of that action is being more complacent than he should Mrs. Harrison Of Basseii Dies at Age 86 Mrs. Ella Hill Harrison, longtime Bassett resident and widow of Dr. William Knox Harrison, died at 11:30 a.m. yesterday at Osceola Memorial Hospital.

He said the action would have no effect on Jordan's policy or Us relations with any nations. The envoy, Abdul Monem Rifa'i, said Olubb was removed "because we felt we were no more in need of his services and therefore there was no need to keep him on." Picture Grave Diplomats at headquarters of the United Nations in New York termed the Middle East picture grave and getting worse. Western leaders were reported to be considering calling an emergency meeting, of the U. N. Security Council*. The Israeli Foreign Office charged Egypt was "massing fighting forces inside the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula' and accused the Egyptians of three new truce violations. The Israeli city of Haifa scheduled the most extensive civil defense tests ever held in the nation for next Monday and Tuesday. —Ben-Curion'o address to Pallia^ ment was his first statement since the dismissal of Glubb by Jordan. The Premier said Israel had to make preparations "because we knew the Arab.states were bent on a second round — but \ye always hoped, and still hope, it can be prevented."

However, the House report called on Secretary of Defense Wilson to strengthen present rules governing industry hiring of retired officers. •The,Demon story began In 1947 when the Navy asked Westinghouse to develop a powerful new jet engine. McDonnell got its first contract for Demon, or P3H fighters, in 1949. They were to be flown with the new Westinghouse J40 engine. In January 1851, during the Korean War, the Navy decided to change the P3H from a short- range Interceptor to a medium- range, all-weather fighter.

So in November 19S2 the Navy decided to switch to stronger Allison flls, The subcommittee said the No. 1 cause of "failure" of the original combination was lack of a powerful engine. "Westinghouse bears a large share of the responsibility for failing to develop successfully the (subsequently) required J40-10 engine," it said, "but the Navy and McDonnell stand responsible for deciding to install second-best engines In the F3H-1N aircraft."
