Ike Consistently Sidesteps Racial Integration Question By JAMES MARtOW Associated f»m» News Analyst WASHINGTON <AP)-President Eisenhower has consistently sidestepped saying whether he thinks racial integration in public schools is good or bad. He did say It should go slower. He's been less consistent in deciding how to enforce the Supreme Court's 1955 order for ending enforced segregation. And he seems as vague today about handling Southern resistance as he was when the court first spoke. This showed up again Wednesday at his news conference. Up To Marshals He said In the past he had taken an oath to enforce the laws. But as recently as Sept. 11, 19S6, he seemed to think he himself couldn't do anything, that the job was up to U.S. marshals. That day he said: "The federal government is not allowed to go into any state unless called upon by the governor who- must show that he is unable with the means at his disposal to preserve order." And on July 17, 1957, he was saying "I can't imagine any set of circumstances" that would ever induce him to send troops into a state to back up the court. He added that day: "I believe the common sense of America will never require it." He reversed his field a couple of months later when Oov. Orval E. Faubus of Arkansas used National Guardsmen to block the court-ordered integration of Little Rock's Central High School. Then Eisenhower sent in troops, not at Faubus' request but over his protests.

He has talked of patience, of educating people on the issues. He has said laws can't change the hearts or prejudices of people. But Wednesday he showed impatience with people who don't obey the law. He was asked how he feels about the refusal of Ala- |bama officials to produce voting records demanded by the government's Commission on Civil Rights. The commission, created by act of Congress, is Investigating complaints of Alabama Negroes that state authorities have frustrated their attempts to register and vote. Sad Thing Eisenhower said: "Well, I don't feel very well about it . , , I think this is a rather sad sort of thing, because all the way around we are running into this refusal of complying with the basic laws of the land, laws that have been upheld by our courts as legal and proper." He called the performance > of the Alabama officials "reprehensible." But does he have any plans himself for handling Southern resistance, such as asking Congress for new laws? He was asked the question: "Do you favor new legislation to bring about the enforcement of integration?" Eisenhower seemed to have no plans at all, beyond saying he thought the commission should be allowed more time to do the job of inquiring into civil rights violations. The commission's two- year term ends next year. He said: "Now, with respect to any new laws which you are talking about in the whole field of civil rights, I simply will say this: This is something that is studied all the time." Just where will all the studying lead to? Eisenhower said, "I don't know." But Wednesday's anger at those who don't comply with the laws was not the same as the attitude he expressed last Aug. 8 when he said: "Mere laws will never solve this problem." Medicine (Shudder) Was for Grandma! CHINL SHUI, Formosa tfl — The Rev. Francis X. Keelan of Cambridge, Mass., a Maryknoll missioner in Formosa, tells this one on himself. A mission handyman came to him and asked if he had anything for a sore throat. The priest found a bottle of medicine and poured a tablespoon of it down the man's , throat. I "He quivered and grimaced," says Father Keelan, "When his , power of speech finally returned I asked him what he thought of the ; medicine. 'It's very good,' he i gasped. 'But I wanted it for my 'grandmother.' " i Bass Put on Display jto Prove Presence j WALKERS DAM, Va.

(AP) The silhouette of a ship that could have been a submarine slipped silently through the morning.mist. Midway along the foredeck of the ship, a circular hatch some 15 feet across swung open and a shiny metal bird with folded wings crawled up'into the light along a slanted track. li; came to rest in a cradle of steel girders, straightened its stubby wings and swiveled into launching position. , The great bird, as : long as a five-story building is tall, began to scream louder and louder as submariners remote in the bowels of the mother ship opened the throttle of the missile's powerful turbo-jet engine. Wham I A rocket-like blast broke the straining bird loose from its moorings and hurtled it toward an inland target with 100,000 pounds of thrust. The shot was a shakedown of the missile firing system of the USS Halibut' the nation's first nuclear-powered missile submarine, which will be launched at Vallejo, Calif., next month. Baptists to Set Un Middle East Mission DAYTON, Ohio I/B- The Ohio state convention of Southern Baptists is sending its first foreign missionary team tb the Middle East about the first of the year. Dr. and Mrs. David Do r r of Columbus will join the staff of the Baptist Hospital in Gaza, Egypt. The Ohio convention is four years old and includes 158 churches and 86 missions in Ohio and parts of neighboring states. READ THE CLASSIFIED ADS For this test the forward" hull of a tank-loading ship had been converted to duplicate the Halibut. The missile used in the test, a 57-foot-long Regulus II, sped 250 miles from its launcher to Tonopah, Nev. The I'i-million-dollar bird was recovered intact and will be returned here for another launching early in January. Boy Enters Unusual Profession in Norfolk NORFOLK, Va. W) — Patrick Lair, 18-year-old son of a Navy commander, is the first apprentice in 40 years to enter the blacksmith profession here. He asked to be apprenticed to R. L. Williamson, 73. Williamson, a blacksmith for 55 years, had planned to retire but said would stay on until he put the boy through a four-year course. MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A 58-year-old woman, not long removed from a Communist detention camp in Romania, will step off a plane here today to reunite a Minnesota family that has been divided for nearly 30 years. Mrs. Anna Natalia Choban will see her husband again for the first time on American soil since 1926 She will get her first look at her four sons' families. And for the first time in years she will be free from fear. War, political upheavals and the conflicting pulls of family ties in American and Europe combined to draw apart the family of Nick Choban, 69, onetime South St. Paul baker, grocer, pool hall proprietor] and now liquor store dealer. But when his wife's plane arrives at Wold-Chamberlain field today they will be back together to stay. The family saga is a remarkable one. Romanian Emigrant Choban met his wife in Chicago in ]915 shortly after she had emigrated from Romania. He, too, was a Romanian emigrant. They moved to South St. Paul after ! their marriage, and prospered. In 1926 the family decided on a visit to the old country. Mrs. Choban and her three sons, Michael, George and Nick Jr. went to live with relatives there. Her husband stayed in South St. Paul to manage his businesses, and later joined them. A fourth son,. John, was born a year later. In 1930 the couple returned to the United States. Mrs. Chobao went back to Join her children in 1932 but Choban had to remain in this country. By this time the mother and sons were living on a farm they rented near the community of Sun Nicolaul Mare. They mfcde a presentable income. The family did some small scale dairy farming and Choban sent money from the states. The boys went to school. "We intended to leave earlier, of course," said Michael, "but our relatives kept asking us to stay, and there was school, a lot of things." Michael did return to the U.S. in 1936. George followed in 1939. White House Dinner Tonight to Honor Court WASHINGTON (AP)-President and Mrs. Eisenhower open the White House winter social season onight with a formal state dinner honoring the Supreme Court. The guest list may be a little larger than usual, but the social season itself — with five state dinners — is the shortest ever. The Eisenhowers have reduced the traditional presidential entertaining to a minimum. They dropped a military-science dinner added last season. But an Eisenhower innovation— the after-dinner musicals for about 150 additional guests—was retained for tonight. Two diplomatic dinners have been set for next Wednesday and Thursday. The brief social'season will wind up next month with state dinners Jan. 26 for Vice President Richard M. Nixon and the Cabinet, and Jan. 27 for the speaker of the House, Sam Rayburn (D- Tex). Nick Jr. had to wait until HM7 and John until 1950. Mrs. Choban asked for permission to go but her ownership of property there com* plicated matters. In 1952 the Communists confiscated her property. She went to live with her sister. Two years ago she was placed in a detention camp. The family has been unable to maintain mubh of a correspondence with her since. Ticket* for Years Choban tried to win permission for her to leave but failed. He had airline tickets for her for yeara. The Red Cross heard about the case and so did Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn). Both Intervened. "We don't know exactly how it was done," said Michael, now 42, "but she's arriving in New York | at 6:15 a.m. today and she'll be here by noon. It will be wonderful to see her again." The Choban house Is all ready for the big reunion. "My father- in-law won't be able to eat, he'll be so excited," said Michael Choban's wife. "But we're going to have baked ham and all the fixings—all the American food we can think of." AUSTIN (Minn.)
