Gilette. and Mrs. Irvin Simpson of DeWitt. FOREIGN AID (Continued from Page 1) Middle East and Asia. In that part of -the world, Elsenhower said, serious risk of aggression stii: exists." Eisenhower added that the program recommends military aid in that amount "for countries in these regions which must main tain substantial forces in the field to resist possible attacks." He said the military help h< proposes will support the objec lives of various military defensi panels, including the Southeas Asia Treaty Organization to Which the United states is a party. Eisenhower's long-term aid plan was a renewal of the proposa made in his January State of the Union message. He .asked for authority to gran up to a billion dollars over the next 10 years in such long-term economic commitments. To carry this out, he requester appropriations up to 100 million dollars in any one year over tha period. Eisenhower put his argu ment for this phase of the pro gram in these words; "We should be able to assur the nations of the free world tha we will continue to participate i: particular nonmilltary project and- enterprises which will take a number of years to complete. Special Fund "Such assurance from us wil help these nations to mobilize their own funds for projects which will contribute to an important de gree to their economic strength to enlist public and private loan and investment,'and to plan ahead Intelligently. "It will be difficult for these na lions to organize such projects un less mutual security program sup port can be relied on for more than a single year." Elsenhower also recommendei cre&tion of a special fund of 10 million dollars to be available fo use In any part of the Middle Eas or''Africa "for nonmilitary mutua security programs which will ad vance the cause of free world se curlty and economic strength." In the economic-aid field, th< largest amount—$-130,700,000 — i proposed for defense support. Thi is economic assistance designed tc help nations strengthen their econ omies to the point where they can support adequate military estab Hshments. '• • • Another Item, development as slstance—covering such fields a agriculture—totals 170 million dol lars. The oint Four program c technical 'assistance would ge $157,500,000, while (401,775,000 1 set aside for-other programs sucl s> the special Asian - Africa: fund. Objections so far were alme principally at its size, compare with the $2,700,000,000 appropr ated last year, and a new featur —requested aulhorlty to mak commitments up' to -10 years the rate of 100 million dollars a year on big projects. This would apply to such major projects as Egypt's proposed Aswan Dam. which would require many years Collectors: Here's New One Stamp collectors desiring the new ihree-cent , Booker T. Washington commemorative stamp can obtain hem at the local post office on and after April 6, Postmaster Ross S. Stevens announced today. Collectors desiring first-day cancellations may send a reasonable number of addressed envelopes to ;he Postmaster, Booker T. Washington Birthplace, Va., with money order remittance only to cover cost of stamps, the postmaster said. Quality stamps for philatelic use may be purchased from the Philatelic Agency, Post Office Department, Washington 25, D.C. o complete. Will Lead Fight Administration officials have been saying Eisenhower will lead a fight for all of the request. Con- jress rarely appropriates the total amount requested for foreign aid. Some officials have said privately 3'A billion dollars might be an acceptable result. The request, as Eisenhower outlined it in his budget message, is for three billions in military aid and $1,860,000,000 for econom- assistance. : About two billions for the three billions asked for military .ale used to replenish reserves to. pas' for future deliveries of planes of planes, tanks and other items which take time for manufacture. Wants Law Changed One feature of the present \* which Eisenhower is understood to want changed is a provision ;hat not more than 20 per ,cen of aid funds may be obligated dur ing the last two months of the fis cal year—that is, after April, 30 The provision, tightened only last. year, is designed to keep agencies from making last-minute helter-skelter spending commit ments to avoid having to return unexpended funds to the Treasury But oiiicials said that because several months are required eacl year to plan and approve "project after Congress votes the foreign id appropriation, most of • the spending must be concentrated in the January-April period. " . What the administration seek; is two more months of elbov room, May and June. Removal o the 20 per cent proviso would give them that, they say. 3 lane Auction Brings Few Buyers CYPRUS (Continued from Page 1) been able to penetrate to the hard core of EOKA, estimated at less than 150 militants. 3 Objections Harding in a news conferenc outlined three objectives of forces his 1.

Most Children Will Get Shots WASHINGTON UP) — Secretary o Welfare Folsom says that despite continuing shortages of Salk polii vaccine, he thinks most of the 4 r million children under 15 will havi two shots before this summer': polio season. He said on an ABC -television show yesterday that about 40 mil lion children already have had one or two injections, but that man: of them will not receive third shot, this -year. Latest tabulations, he said, indi THE ANSWER Men and women drink essentially becau« they like the effect produced by alcohol. The sensation Is so elusive that, while they 'admit It is Injurious, they cannot after a time differentiate the true from the false. To them their alcoholic life sesems the only normal one. They are restless, Irritable and discontented, and they know that ease and comfort will come with a drink. So here goes another binge, regardless .of cost, family, job, self, church, friends. Back to the back room or hoslptal we go, saying NEVER AOAIN only to get tober and confused again, then another series of nervousness, restlessness, delusions, trying to face facts, resentment, jealously, hate, self centeredness, self pity, etc. All or any one of these character deflecUi will eventually start us on another drinking spree.

Wi — The (Jross Auction Co., which has sold every, ling from Mules to hardware In s 60 years, tried a new pitch yeserday: air planes. The proposition was simple: fly our plane lo the Olathe airport, lunk down $10 listing fee and add 5 per cent commission if your rate is sold. The firm advertised his formula, and the auction date, 14 states. Everything went according to Ian except the weather. It was old. It rained. It sleeted. The vind was up and down. At 12:30 p.m., the scheduled start if the auction, the Gross people vere still scanning , the skies for ustomers. Only six planes had hown. Then a group of 100 would be buyers and kibitzers moved from a warm hangar to the wind-swept field and auctioneer Bill Gross called for the first bid. This was on a plane that belonged to the now-disbanded Olathe Air Scouts. Nobody knew Just how many hours the machine had logged, but Jt brought S37S. Two more planes sold, for $900 and $8,500 respectively. The latter was flown to Olathe, near Kansas Cily, from Denver. Gross was undismayed by th* slender volume. "I still think it's a good Idea," he said. "It ought to be big business, once we get into the swing of it. We just didn't have the break on the weather." Gross said the firm will try another plane auction next month. Scientists Claim Way to Free Chemically Stored Sunlight cate that the rate of paralytic polio among children who have not had Salic vaccine is about 4 ! / 2 times higher than among those who have had. He termed this "very encouraging." BALTIMORE I* — The Air Research and Development Command reports its scientists have found a way of freeing "chemically stored sunlight" in the earth's atmosphere. Eventually, the announcement said, the experiments may lead to a means of extracting this stored energy for such uses as the propulsion of rocket ships high in the atmosphere. Terming tne discovery a "major breakthrough," ARDC headquarters here said it tok place at the Holloman Air Development Center in New Mexico. Under direction of Dr. Murray Zelikoff, scientists found in the laboratory that energy locked in atomic oxygen could be released by adding nitric oxide, a gas, the announcement said. Nitric oxide, it said, has the property of bringing two oxygen atoms together to form an oxygen molecule and release light. The light is actually sunlight which has beejj stored chenvcally in oxygen atoms. To test the laboratory discovery the ARDC said, a rocket was sent 60 miles aloft from Holloman. It released nitric oxide gas under high pressure into the atmosphere A flood of light resulted. In less :han 10 minutes, the announcement said, the light had grown in size so that it seemed from the earth to be about four times the diameter of the moon. The spot of light spread to about three miles in width before the nitric oxide gas thinped out and the brightness dimmed, the ARDC said.
