PAGE SCC THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and IOGANSPORT PRESS, IOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, JANUARY 26, IMS Ike Takes A Hand In Shake-Up WASHINGTON (a — President Eisenhower took a personal hand Salurday in moves to reorganize the Defense Department He paid an unusual visit to the Pentagon and conferred with top civilian and military leaders. There was immediate bipartisan applause from members of Congress for the President's dramatic action to speed a promised overhaul of the nation's military set-j up to meet the challenge of Rus-j sian Sputniks and missiles. < Eisenhower conferred for more than two hours with Secretary of Defense McElroy and 14 other civilian and military officials. These included reorganization advisers whom McElroy named recently. There 'was no announcement whether any decisions had been reached. Among 'those sitting in on the conference were Gen. Nathan F. Twining, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and two previous JCS chairmen— Adm. Arthur W. Radford and Gen. Omar Bradley. White House Press Secretary James C. Hageriy was asked why Eisenhower had gone lo the Pentagon instead of having McElroy come to the White House. "The President said he was going to take a personal interest in this, so he went over there," Hagerly said. "It was his idea." Hagerty said this was just one of a series of conferences Eisenhower will have with McElroy prior to the President's decision on defense reorganization. Sen. Mansfield of Montana, the assistant Democratic leader, said he was "happy to note that the President at this time is taking a personal interest in the reorganization of the Pentagon as he indicated he would do in his State of the Union message."

Put Up No Cash "In other words, neither Mr. Murchison nor Mr. Richardson put up a dollar of their own money?" asked the subcommittee chairman, Sen. Herbert H. Lehman (D - NY). Lehman added: "Actually they didn't risk anything." "They gave their notes," Young retorted. "I don't know what else you can call risk. Their credit is good. This country, including the United States Treasury, is run on credit." As explained by Young, Alleghany contracted to buy the stock from Murchison and Richardson at $25 a share, the same price they paid for it. The two guaranteed Alleghany against loss and. paid 4V4 per cent interest on the money borrowed from Alleghany. The c'ontract called for an even split between Alleghany and the Texans of any increase in value of th stock. The stock did advance and Young declared the transaction wound up with everyone concerned making a profit. He called it "the cleverest deal in my financial history." Richardson was in California on a vacation when Murchison telephoned him about Young's need for help in his proxy fight. In a hurry to get to a golf course, Richardson did not under stand all the details before agreeing to go along. Time magazine said he called Murchison the next day. ST.

On Jan. 17, a report to the New York Stock Exchange disclosed Young had sold 27,300 shares of Central stock, reducing his hold ings to 1,200 shares so far as the public record was concerned. This would not include holdings of any of Young's various controlled companies, such as Alle ghany, nor any stock he turned over to or sold to his wife for tax purposes in December. . It had never been known definitely exactly how much Central stock Young owne'd or controlled, but at one time it at least totaled hundreds of thousands. Young was born in, Canadian, Tex., Feb. 14, 1897. Prophetically as a boy in the Texas Panhandle, he had the nickname "Railroad" because his initials were R. R. He attended Culver Military Academy and was graduated withj •the highest honors in his class. He refused to be valedictorian because of shyness. Young entered the University of Virginia but became more interested in poker and other forms of gambling than in his studies. He left the university in less than two years. After his marriage in April, 1916, Young took a job at 28% cents an hour in a Du Pont powder plant at Carneys Point, N. J.

WASHINGTON (m— The Eisenhower administration apparently Soviets Ready To Talk Ban MOSCOW, Sunday an — Soviet Communist party Chief Nikita . Khrushchev said in a speech pub| lished Sunday the Soviet Union is ready to discuss a ban on intercontinental ballistic missiles—but only as part of a disarmament package deal. He made clear he was not proposing such a ban outside an agreement that would include disarmament proposals the Soviet Union has been trying to sell without success in the past. The conditions Khrushchev laid down called for the West to agree to dismantle military bases with which, he said, the United States lias surrounded the Soviet Union and the communist camp. He called for a summit conference to discuss these issues, but said they would have to be part of an agrement on the reduction of foreign forces in Germany and other European states. Ban On Bomb! The package deal, he said, also would have to include standing Soviet proposals for the immediate banning of atomic and hydrogen weapons and their tests and the creation of an atomic-free zone in central Europe.
