PAOB TEH BI.YTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, DECEMBER 31, 193S New Congress Leaders Combine Youth and Age By LEWIS GULICK WASHINGTON (AP) — Four men who provide a combination of youth and age along with experience and reputations for hard work will gimle Congress in 1956. The "big four" on Capitol Hill "WHAT A LIFT—Employes a West Berlin, Germany, gas: work* make light of heavy work, thanks to this new-style crane.

Congressional (Continued from Page 1) dence to back the earlier charge of bribery in connection with the shooting. Faure's office also had a so- caHed authorized source tell the French Press Agency early today that the bribery accusation "does not seem to be corroborated" by an investigation still in progress. Faure is acting interior minister as well as premier. Fox Movietone News officials also denied a charge by Jacques Soustelle, governor general' of Algeria, that the picture of the shooting was made to support an "anti- French campaign" in the United Nations. Algerian Question L'Express kept up its fire on the Algerian question. The paper quoted two Moslem officui Is—one a member of the French Senate— on two other events the paper has reported nnd the Interior Ministry has denied. One of the officials was quoted as saykig five brothers were .executed at the town of Milu, near Const-antine in northeastcn Algeria, after they had been cleared by an investigating: magistrate. The other official supported j Hooked Duck L'Express's version of the execution of 1-2 suspects at GuendouzR. southeast of Bouf>ier, after the murder of a local constable. Algeria continued t boil up in the news on the eve of t,he French election. Police sources there said at least 25 rebels were sliun In clashes Thursday and Friday. Four inen were arrested on charge. 1 ; they planned to throw grenades on election day. Although Algeria is administered as a political part of metropolitan France, voting there has been postponed indefinitely. More than 25 million French men and women are eligible !o votei Monday. With few m-wspapiT.s ap-l pea ring Sunday, only scattered election meetings and no political' broadcasts, many people will con- 1 cent rate on recovering from the huge nifdl traditionally eaten on New Year's evo. i during the new session opening Tuesday will be: Sam Ruvburn, 73. who has been Speaker of the House for more than 11 years in all—longer than any other man. Lyndon B, Johnson, like Rayburn a Texas Democrat, whose selection as Senate Democratic leader three years ai;o at '14 made him the youngest ever to hold that post- Joseph W. Martin Jr., 71, a Massachusetts Republican who has led his party colleagues in the House lor 17 years and served four year. 1 , as Speaker. William F. Knowland. 47-ye;ir- old Cuhforman whose rise to the Senate SOP leadership in 1953 made him one of the youngest majority leaders in history. Election Year They face a major task in a presidential election year. The Democrats control both House and Senate by thin majorities. The Republicans hold the presidency and its empire of executive agencies. Not only the White House, but all House seats and one third of the Senate seats will be nt stake in November. Ray burn and Martin, Johnson and Knowland will have their hands full in closing party ranks behind party programs while still encouraging the moderation and compromise that are necessary to legislative accomplishments. Rayburn has been a staunch supporter of the Democratic program —with a capital "D"—since he entered Congress with the first administration of Woodrow Wilson. He may find it harder to keep his own temper in check as the partisan spirit fans hotter. The same £?oes for Martin, a House member since 1925 and a GOP stalwart long before that. Personal Problem Johnson has the added persona problem of n heart attack suffered last July which is expected to slow down the strenuous pace at which lie had driven himself as Semite leader. Knowland's biggest difficulty may stem from his evident intent to run for presidnt if President Eisenhower decides against another bid. The outspoken Californian makes no secret of his differences with Eisenhower over foreign policy. As a campaignr for president, he might be stressing his opposition to parts of the Eisenhower program while, as Senate GOP FIGHTING POLIO—This is the official poster for the 1956 March of Dimes campaign against polio. It features little Tommy Woodward, 5, of Baltimore, Md. The blue-eyed, towheaded youngster was stricken with polio in 1951, v:hen he was little more than a year old. His great ambition is "to run like 'Chuckte'," his 2 1 ,|>year-old brother. Tommy's picture will also appear on donation cans throughout the munirv. Antarctic Base Site Is Picked KAINAN BAY.

The Kuinan shelf ice is regarded ;••• more stable and accessible than that in the Bay of Whales area where the first four Little Americas lie buried under snow and ice.
