Shy, Nervous Autherine Lucy Weds Her College Sweetheart DALLAS, Tex. (&)— A shy, nerv- cua Autherine Lucy married her poised and smiling college sweetheart, the Rev. H. C. Foster, 37, here yesterday. The big auditorium of the St. John Baptist Church was jammed with Negroes and a few whites who craned their necks for a view of the ceremony. The 36-year-old Birmingham. Ala., secretary who was the first Negro to enter the university ot Alabama then was expelled after a series of race riots, quietly said "1 do" amid the glare of television foodlights and flash bulbs . The Tyler, Tex., student minister's "I do" was loud and clear. Microphones hidden in the bower of white carnations over the couple picked up the proceedings for TV and radio reproduction later. After a seven-minute ceremony the groom and bride kissed. A ripple of applause ran through the crowd in the high-ceilinged church. Photographers asked for another kiss but the bride refused and the crowd laughed politely. After a brief reception at the home of , the Rev. E. C. Estcll, church pastor, the couple left on an i automobile trip in east Texas for a honeymoon.

We have "drifted and stumbled," he said, and "lost the initiative" in the cold war because of the "sterility" of the Eisenhower administration in foreifin affairs. A few hours later, speaking to the same editors at dinner, Eisenhower said he didn't think anyone knew who was winning the cold war. But as for less likelihood ol shooting war, he seemed optimistic. "We have reasons," he said, "for cautious hope that a new, a fruitful, a peaceful era for mankind can emerge from a haunted decade." Not .so Stevenson. In a nationwide broadcast Sunday night, he expressed doubts a shooting war looked further away but he wouldn't say it looked closer. In his speech to the editors. Stevenson of I or t'ri a number of suggestions for improving' America's foreign relations. Eisenhower put his emphasis on suggesting things the Russians should do to create more faith in them. While Eisenhower was addressing the editors in a hotel dining room Saturday night, two well- known Democrats were making speeches at a Democratic fundraising dinner in an armory. Unlike the fairly mild Eisenhower and the well-controlled Stevenson, these two Democrats- Sen. Alben Barkley of Kentucky, former vice president, and Speaker of the House Sam Ray burn of Texas — used more traditional methods. They are of the able thumping, give-'em-hell school of politics. Thej 'em in this case were the Republicans. I Barkley said their foreign policy was "massive confusion" while Rayburn said that as a result of it this country is "losing ground and losing friends." The campaign is just starting. If in the months to come the average voter hears bells in his head, he doesn't have to worry, It visually starts going away after election dav.
