PAGE I- NEWS ICOA'X.), TTUDAY, DKC. 30, 1M9 DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Acheson, Johnson Doing- A-l Jobs As Heads Of State And Defense Departments; Have Put Aside Their Differences; Johnson Steps On Many Toes, Including Truman s U'.-LShinirtun -Hero is 1h<> inside .sto:-y on Ihf report of friction 6c- two* ii two of the mo^t potent Truman cabinet members — Secretary of State Dean Acheson and Ser-re!ury of Defense Louis Johnson. Actually there have been differ- tnce> of opinion between them on •three important policies, but both men are now leaning" over backward to get along: with each other. The three policies are: 1) Sending n steel mill to Yugoslavia, which Johnson apposed but Acheson favored; 2> Occupying Formosa with U. S. troops, which Johnson favored but Acheson opposed: 3) General American policy in the F;ir East, where Johnson believes the United States should have vigorously supported Chiang Kai- Phc-k. " Acheson has particularly resented Johnson's barging into the Far Eastern situation: and the belief hsf. been expressed around the State Department that Johnson's interferences could not be entirely divorced from his law firm which or. :-e represented the brothers-in- law of Chiang Kai-Shek and the So ing dynasty. Argument Over Airplanes One small part of the Johnson- Acheson irritation came when the Secretary of Defence balked at Sivina: the Secretary of State a. special White House plane to fly to the Big Three Foreign ministers conference last November. Acheson wanted the "Dew-drop"', the dc luxe liner which the air force had built for "President" Dewey. But Johnson refused en the ground that the President's special .plane, the "Independence,'' WP.J en route to Iran to bring back -.he Shah, and that Mr. Truman wp,nted the "Dew-drop., kept iri the United States in case of tt-mersency. Johnson offered his cabinet col- I'Ts.u'ue the President's onetime plane, the "Sacred Cow," but the Snored Cow does not make as much speed as the Independence f." the Dew-drop. So, without ar- jruir.s any further with the Sec- r :•<-••>;••,• of Defense, the Secretary >'a - -e quietly rented n special • '•-•-• from American AirlinfT.

SCULLY, Florist Flow f™ lor Every Occasion *80 BALDWIN ST. ^=,~ T ' SCULLY, Prop. PHONE WAT. 5-7280 AMATEUR SCIENTIST William G. Graves (above), 32, Marlboro, Mass., told newsmen that he had developed the same gravitational theory as Dr. Albert Einstein. Graves said that one of the important points of the theory is that gravity is a substance and that in the "mass," it travels faster than light. (International Sound-photo) difficult jobs ever tackled by any administration—pruning the military budget and at the same time putting across unification. Cracking Army-Navy heads together is difficult enough and contributed to the death of his predecessor But '.simultaneously cutting the budget is bound to make any cabinet Secretary of Defense unpopular inside the government. However, Johnson, in his zeal to get things done, doesn't alwiyj: clear hii appointments with either the Democratic National Committee or the White House Secretariat. On major appointments, hp clear* with the President himself, but he goes over the heads of men around Truman to do this and they don't like it. Result has been a steady trickle of well-placed anti-Johnson venom in the President's ear. This, plus perhaps the fact that Truman may a 1952 presidential rival in the dynamic Secretary of Defense explains why he drqpped the remark to intimates that someday he's going to "get rid of that so-and-so " Truman, however, has been known to fly off the handle and then forget about it. Meanwhile, Johnson is doing one of the best jobs in th e cabinet and would not bo eaiay to replace So als.o is Acheson. And a.s of the present moment 'they scorn to have climbed out of each other's hair and put aside their differences.

Hope Edges Crosby In Race For Top Box Office Appeal Hollywood, Dec. 30—(UP)—Comedian Bob Bope has something new to Heckle Bine Crosby about today.
