B. Beecher, county health officer. The services of J. E. Lauck, Associates, Architects and , Engineers, Kansas City, Mo., have been retained, Beecher said. One of the factors in retaining this firm was the agreement that there will be no fees due the firm until after the bid for the actual construction of the building is let. 38 1-4 57 3-4 50 1-li 47 1-2 6 3-8 9 7-8 149 l-« 1'9 1-4 103 1-4 59 3-4 Livestock • NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, 111.

Clement Attlee, a former prime minister, stepped down two days ago and accepted ah earldom. Alt- lee's age — 72 — and recent ill health forced his retirment as Labor leader. To Strain Unity The leadership contest threatened to strain the frail fabric of unity the party had maintained In recent months. Basic political philosophy also was involved. Gaitskell and Morrison are party moderates. Bevan, who often denounces U. S. policies, is a left-winger. Qaltskell. 49-year-old intellectual and former chancellor of the exchequer, is favored to win. Morrison, 67-year-old deputy party leader, has stood patiently for years in Attlee's shadow. Twenty years ago he . contested the leadership with Attlee and the late Arthur Greenwood and lost to Attlee, who held the job for two decades. Bevan, moon-faced Welsh orator, is the most colorful personality. Since the virtual retirement of Sir Winston Churchill, the 58-year-old firebrand is far and away Parliament's best speaker. His followers picture him as the only true Socialist of the three—the only one who still believes in the doctrine of nationalization of all major industries. Gaitskell would have no part of this maneuver. He said: "A number of my colleagues have been good enough to nominate me. They have made it plain that they would greatly regret it if I were to withdraw. I propose to allow my name to stand. I have the highest regard for Mr. Morrison, but I think the party should have the opportunity of choosing." Bevan had agreed to support Morrison provided Gaitskell would .do likewise. The Laborites were cheered by their thumping victory in a special parliamentary election in Scotland yesterday. The voting was to fill n vacancy in the Greenock District caused by the death of Laborite Hector McNeil, former minister of state, in New York last month. Dr. J. Dickson Mabon, a Laborite, defeated Conservative Ian MacArthur 19,698 to 17.0S4. 'Mabon had a majority of 2,"94. compared with McNeil's margin of only 1,033 in the general election last May. The health officer expressed belief that thli will give the Board an opportunity to present the idea to the citizens of the county and to determine if local funds can be obtained for Its construction when plans are available. Six architects were Interviewed and their offers were received before a decision was made, Beecher said. He also said that members of the board toured Missouri to look at other health buildings. They learned that the state needs and estimated 134 buildings and only 15 have been built, Beecher said. He said that Southeast Missouri has one of the highest priority ratings by the Federal Government for the construction of health centers under the Hill-Burton Act, which pays half the costs of buildings meeting government specifications. Ike Is Offered College Position NEW YORK 1*1 — Should President Eisenhower decide not to stand for re-election be still can be a president — of Gettysburg College. John Rice, chairman of the Board of Trustees of the college, said last night the presidency of the school is vacant and the job is Eisenhower's if he wants it.
