SATURDAY, JULY 18, 1058 TSUTHEVITJ.TC (AKTU COUIUEU NEWS PA OB THKEH Stevenson's Political Future Still Fuzzy Around Edges By DON WHITEIIEAD (For James Marlon 1 ) WASHINGTON Ml—Adlai Stevenson is winding up his world tour and coming home later this month to a political future still fuzzy around ihe edges. It is far from clear just where Etevensson will fit into the Democratic picture even though many of his party still consider him to be their leader and spokesman. There is nothing to indicate he intends to step hack into the shadows and leave the field of leadership to others. His actions haven't been those of a man who has accepted one defeat as final. Even on a world trip he has kept his name before the people at home through his writings and statements. But It is becoming evident that an influential part of the Democratic party doesn't intend to Bee the 1956 presidential nomination go to Stevenson by default. There were many Democratic leaders, particularly the old regulars, who never quite felt comfortable with Stevenson. It was not that they disliked or were opposed to him because of any particular philosophy or issue. They just never felt he was one of them. Symington Possibilty More and more the name of Sen Stuart Symington of Missouri is cropping up as a possible claimant to the Democratic nomination in '5C. The talks persists that Symington is the man to watch in the jockeying for favorable position before the convention. That convention is a long- time distant measured by political mileage. But it seems safe to predict the man who wins next time will have to go out and fight for the Conferees Vote 20,000 New Housing Units WASHINGTON I/PI — Senate- House conferees on a multi-agency appropriation bill voted yesterday :o permit the start of 20,000 new low-rent -public housing units in the current fiscal year. This was a compromise between nomination, It's doubtful there will i the Senate vote for 35,000 starts be another draft. and the House decision to permit Many people never quite under- ] none - T 116 compromise must yet He replied quickly: "01 course." He went on to say that for too many years the system had grown in which men set themselves up as leaders by announcing, "I am a leader and have the qualifications to be president." Then, he added, these men proceeded to sell the people on the idea they were laders. He argued the democratic way was for the people to choose their own leaders. The point was that the impetus should come from the people—not from someone selling himself. At that time Stevenson also said that In accepting the nomination, he also had accepted the responsibilities of party leadership that had been President Truman's. The coming months will give a clearer picture of Sevenson's position in the party and his chances again to be the Democratic nominee. But until this happens, it is certain politics will be livelier and considerably more fun with Stevenson back home.

Then, as we get closer to the front, we see medium guns and light guns ana finally heavy mortar batteries. Here and there the Pukhan River banks are alive with the ruddy tan bodies of South Korean soldiers washing themselves and their mud-soaked uniforms. These are men just out of battle and soon to return. We near the front and the big chopper settles down on a flight strip.

OKLAHOMA CITY (/PI — Samuel II. Loefiler appeared at the Oklahoma County assessor's affice and declared his pet coyote for tax purposes. Startled clerks finally put a S25 valuation on the animal and told j him the tax and penalty for not declaring it before would be S2.50. Then they asked why he wanted applications to pay a tax on his coyote. Loeffler retorted his landlady complained about a coyote as a pet and he wanted a value put on j year, the animal so he could sue if anything happened to it. FCC Simplifies TV Priority Set-Up WASHINGTON iff) — The Communications Commission announced yesterday it is dropping its complex priority system for handling television applications in favor of a simpler one. The announcement said the procedure for processing competing is being revised "to reflect changed conditions" brought about by the granting of about 400 permits for TV stations in the past Why Remember? division command posts. At one, Paik goes into the war tent with the division commander and his highest staff officers. There is the bark of gutteral Korean, then the softer, slower English. A phrase or two emerges as the door opens and Paik strides out: "I say stay, fight," Paik says, quoting his own watchwords that have spread through the army. "We must fight and throw them back." The little general hates sloppiness in an army where slopplness used to be the rule. Here and there he comes on an officer or a man lolling in the sun in his under, shirt or even in his shorts. Then hell breaks loose, and the harsh Korean syllables crack like a whip.

Highway"51 Hubert UHey HoTTand, Mo. Maude Adams Dies After Brief Illness Business Earnings for Second Quarter Top Same '52 Period By SAM DAH'SON . NEW YORK UV-The first flash flood of profit statements show business earnings after taxes running almost one-fourth better than this timo lust year. The first lili corporations report- Ing on net income in the second quarter show more than two-thirds of them are outdistancing their profits for the same three months in 1952. The 11 whose second quarter cimiiiiRs nre trailing last year, in most ca;;es report only slight drops. Stockholders should be happier, too. Corporations paid out about four billion dollars in dividends in the first half of this year, a gain of four per cent over the year-ugo figures. Still another pleasant report is In the day's news. The Securities and Exchange Commission and the Federal Trade Commission join to report (hat manufacturing companies alone made 2% billion dollars in net profits after taxes in the first three months of the year. This was 11 per cent better than in the first quarter of 195J. The first 36 corporations reporting so far on their second quarter earnings are widely distributed through the various industries. They are both laTg.e and small. Some of them report for three- month periods ending May 31. but most for the April, May and June period. Combined, they made net prof- j its after taxes of $223.720,541 in the second quarter. This is a gain of 23.T per cent over the year ago combined earnings of $180.801,358. Heavily weighing the report on the bright side, however, is the big come-back of the steel companies. Three of them report their combined earnings in the last three months ran 212.5 per cent over the year ago figure. That, of course, is because In most of. June 1952, their mills were idled by a strike, and profits slumped. The same weakness in comparisons carries over also into otmer Molyshev Given New Ministry Job by USSR MOSCOW «p}—The Soviet government nnnoiinced yesterday that Vyacheslav A.
