Eisenhower Does Not Exert Undue Pressure With Power When President Eisenhower won the GOP nomination over Senator Taft last year, it was hailed as a victory for the liberal Republicans. Some of the political sages said, however, that it would take a triumph over the Democrats in the fall to consolidate the intra-party victory of the "Eisenhower wing" Mr. Eisenhower got that triumph, by imprcssivve margin. But the consolidation of his party victory over the more conservative Republican forces has not followed. Perhaps a more careful reading of the prospects in 1952 would hflve indicated the unlikelihood of such an outcome. One—To begin with, the forces which most vigorously supported Mr. Eisenhower for the presidency did not constitute anything like a majority of Republicans. The President captured the nomination with the substantial assistance of many middle-range Republicans who did not share the views of the GOP liberals. They accepted him because they were convinced he was most likely to win in November. They did not thereby promise to do battle for the beliefs of his most ardent backers. Two—Furthermore, with one or two exceptions the liberal Republicans did not stand to inherit positions of power in Congress, where the real test of party controll is had. In other words, the Republicans who pushed Mr. Eisenhower in 1952 could not be counted upon to take his program in hand and steer it to passage. Men who either opposed the President violently or accepted him grudgingly were to become the arbiters of congressional power. And of course they did. Three—There still remained the power of the presidency itself. A President lifted into office on a flood of popular support has immense prestige, and, as many have shown, it can be translated into tremendous influence both in his party and beyond it. A President may exert that influence in many ways, some subtle, some not. If he calls the people to his aid, the pressures he can build <*re difficult to resist. But here perhaps only the closest insight into Mr. Eisenhower's character would have disclosed in advance that he would not Choose to use his power in this fashion. He has not tried to put his wing of the party in the ascendancy and subdue opposing elements. Ht has sought instead to harmonize all factions. The reasons may be many. His reputation for military leadership concealed a basic modesty and underplayed his belief in compromise. Besides, he felt that in the recent past too much executive weight had been tossed around. And he may regard himself ill-qualified by training for the role of political boss which a "strong" President must fill. Whatever the explanations, Mr. Eisenhower has drawn upon very little of his power. The triumph gained at Chicago has not been consolidated. And so the victory he registered afterward with the electorate has come more and more to belong to the Republicans who are really wielding party power. Next year, American voters will go to the polls again, and they will decide whether that state of affairs is all right with them. Views of Others Society Note There was more than a little -snobbery, we fear, in press accounts of the marriage of "Sara Delano Roosevelt, heiress grand-daughter of an American President," to the son of an humble immigrant barber." Said the Associated Press: "It was Park Avenue come to the drabness of East 12th Street in the lower East Side, almost within sight and sound of the Bowery." Said an account in the New York Herald Tribune (which, however, had the good grace to jump the story to its society page); "Enterprising celebrants loosed flurries of torn newspapers from the tenement rooftops from time to time." Said another press association account: "The bridegroom's mother, Rose, a short, heavy-set woman, wore . . ." None of the accounts made especial mention of the fact that the young bridegroom is an accomplished musician, a concert pianist, in hii own right. The emphasis, rather, was on the "immigrant barber," which Is to suggest that there was something curious in the circumstances in the ancient trade of barbering. At least we are relieved to discover that the bridegroom's father twns he, like the mother, "short, heavyset" — descriptive adjetives rarely used in the privacy of a wedding account?) is a "humble" man, as are all great men. F.D.R. was not around for this one. Reading the account, we remember the famous salutation of his address to the Daughters of the American Revolution: "Fellow Immigrants!—" —The Asheville Citizen. Keep The Spies Out President Elsenhower has been very .willing to permit the Kremlin to learn nbout the fact of the detonation of atomic and hell bombs. If there is any one single factor that will make the apelike men in the Kremlin s"e reason It Is the story of the most recent and largest bomb exploded on our national proving grounds. The imputations of that bomb were felt 600 miles away. Under existing circumstances It Is natural thnt the Reds redouble their efforts to send In other spies and get new secrets. It is manifest now thnt the Kremlin lags fnr behind American development of this monstrous weapon of war. And It is apparent that we must treasure the complicated secrets of nature that free scientists In this country have developed with amazing speed and horrible effectiveness. Secrets of this kind must not be permitted to pass the guard. Even our most trusted allies cannot hove them. How far they have served in taking the belligerency out of Moscow we may never know but we do know that the Soviets have been very persistent fellows and when (hey reverse, even temporarily, an International policy they have been helped In that reversal by the growing awareness of America to its peril and the growing difficulty of now securing an open door to Its accomplishments, so easily secured only a few years ago. —Green Bay Press-Gazette.

All Ike Wants to Do Is Build a Bridge Peter Edson's Washington Column— Clean -Up of Information Unit Presents New Security Problems Peter Edson Washington — (NEA) — The clean-up or clean-out of the State Department's International Infor- ed a number of security problems not found in regular diplomatic work. IIA, of course, is the outfit that runs the Voice of America, the U.S. libraries nnd information centers overseas, the American propaganda press. publications and posters program, ind the international exchange of rued persons under the Fulbright act. The competent professional personnel recruited for ILA must be writers, dramatists, newspaper nnd radio people, InngiwEe ex- )erts, refugees or political figures with special knowledge of certain countries. Such people often live under different standards than run- of-tne-mlne folk. They are apt to be more liberal, more tolerant, freer in their conduct. To use such people effectively involves some securty risk. It lias to be taken sit times to get \ particular Job done. 20 Names Submitted Since Scott McLeod came in afi ,he State Department's new .security fldministriitor in March, the names of 20 top officials of IIA tiave been submitted to him for security clearance. OiU of this group several have resigned, though iot necessarily because they were security risks. Some just got tired of the way the program was being run, with heavy criticisms and heavier budget cuts from Congress. ILA Administrator Robert L. Johnson and his deputy, Arthur A. Kimball, have thus far announced cuts of 830 employes in IIA. In addi- tion, 160 unfilled jobs have been abolished. This reduces the HA for from 9100 to 8110. This number may be increased slightly, however, as new talent Is hired to step up programs aimed at countries behind the Iron Curtain, he increase will be 25 Americans and about 200 local nationals. It is again emphasized by Security officers that the recent reduction of nearly 1000 employes Is not made up entirely ot loyalty case firings. Most of them were reductions in force necessitated by budget cuts. And there have been a number of voluntary resignations. Force not Used Many of those who resigned could have been fired outright under security regulations, but they were allowed to leave quietly. There has been no effort to force anyone to resign, says Security Administrator McLeod. This is best illustrated in the case of Theodore H. Kaghan, former deputy director of information for the U. S. High Commissioner in Germany. There is untold story in connection with this case. Kaghan was first accused of having failed to receive security clearance in New York hearings before Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy's committee, Feb. 28. Kaghan, in Germany, denied knowing anything about not being cleared, and the incident seemed closed. The IIA Administrator Johnson asked McLeod for an evaluation on Kaghan. Senator McCarthy's young investigators, Roy M. Conn and G. David Schine then interviewed Kaghan in Germany. He came out spouting about, "gumshoers" after that interview and demanded to be called back to Washington to clear his record. The McCarthy committee also requested that Kaghan be called back. While Kaghan was in Washington, waiting for his hearing, he came into HA headquarters and told Deputy Administrator Kimball that he wanted to resign. He had taken all the abuse he could stand, he said, and he wanted out. Accept Resignation Investigator Cohn heard, about this, and wanted the State Department to accept the resignation at once, so that Kaghan wouldn't be called for testimony. By this play, the McCarthy committee could take credit for getting rid of another State Department employe. But Mr. Kaghan was allowed to complete his testimony first. Then the State Department accepted his regisna- tion. This incident is important in the story of the State Department clean -up for two reasons. Besides showing that no State Department "blackmail" was used to secure Kaghan's resignation, the incident showed that Security Administrator McLeod is not knuckling under the dictation from the McCarthy committee. McLeod and McCarthy are admittedly friends. But McLeod says that the senator had nothing; to do with his appointment to the State Department security post, and did no know abotu it until it was announced. Thruston Ballard Morton, assistant Secretary of State for congressional relations, has assigned to McLeod's office the responsibility for liaison with all investigating committees. "We cooperate with these committees," says McLeod. "But we have not given them any files and we have not shown them any papers they were not entitled to see." This is his answer to the frequently heard Washington rumor that McLeod was made Security Administrator for the express purpose of funneling State Department secrets to Senator McCarthy, Sunday School Lesson— Written for NEA Service By W.

Jan Sterling, who will wear the eye-popper as the siren of Paramount's "Alaskan Seas," says the studio was advised by the Johnston office: "You can photograph anything that's covered " "Well, I'm covered," she blushed, "but, oh, brother, is that sweater tight." Jan's beaming over the role— the film is a remake of "Spawn of the North" and she has Dorothy Laraour's character and her love scenes with Bob Ryan in George Raft's part and Van Heflin, in Henry Fonda's role. "I'm finally getting away," she says, "from those gas pumps, suitcases and dusty hamburger stands."

Declarer won in diamonds and looked around for a way to make nine tricks. He could count five clubs and three diamonds, and therefore needed only one spade trick to make his contract. For no reason at all, except that South was an advertising man, declarer immediately cashed dummy's ace, king; and queen of clubs. The maneuver served no useful purpose except to advertise to all the world that South had a good club suit, and that he would make his contract with clubs and diamonds unless the defenders managed to win five defensive tricks on the run. When declarer next led a spade from the dummy ana played the king from his hand, West was ready with the only possible defense. He took the nee of spades and returned the nine of hearts. Dummy had to cover with the ten of hearts, and East was able to win with the jack. Since this trick made the situation clear, East returned the three, of hearts to West's king. Now West could lead the deuce of hearts, making it possible for East to win two more tricks with the ace and eight of hearts. It is interesting to note that West could not have defeated the contract If he had begun the hearts by leading the king or the deuce. On the lead of the deuce, for example, dummy plays the ten, and East must win with the jack. On the third round of hearts, West's nine will block the suit. Declarer would have made his contract if he had simply led a spade at the second trick instead of advertising his club strength. Unaware of the need for haste, West would have continued with a "safe" diamond instead of making the dangerous shift to hearts. day that make money," says Dont "I only said that I believe the talking mule gag, like anything .else, can reach a saturation point and maybe we ought to think twice about making still another Francis movie." - V ; / n You've probably never heard of a doll named Edna Skinner.
