MUST PROTECT BALD SPOT Senators Fussy About Their Heads WASHINGTON (Up)—The light er side of Congress: With most of our lawmakers each day more deeply involved in problems of space, photographers around the Senate are wrestling with a matter that is merely, but increasingly, global. ... It has to do with a senator's bead. "Don't shoot the bald spot," Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas has been warning them lately. Johnson laughs, but this is not to be mistaken to mean he is kidding. Officially, Johnson is not running for president. But he'll have a hard time making the picture men believe it. On occasion, Johnson has stopped a press conference until he got all the photogs around up In front of him. So far they haven't had too much trouble cooperating.

The "new look" in senatorial appearance seems to be running these days more toward the handsome, suave, successful-businessman-type. Iron gray hair, neatly clipped; chiseled features; and just enough lines in ihe lace. Sens. Stuart Symington (D-Mo.) and Prescott Bush CR-Conn.), for instance? The best current examples of the Senate since 1353, not only has not succumbed to the uninhibited Senatetype haircut but lately has been wearing his noticeably shorter. "It's not Madison Avenue," he claims. "It's Martin of the Senate barber shop." Barber Martin, Nixon reports, has been cutting his hair for years. Lately, Martin decided it would look better shorter. It used to be that a man's wife made important decisions like that. Sen. George Smathers (D-Fla.), has a full last problems with hair years ago, was posing for pictures this week with Rep. Howard W.

At present there are 18 students in the society, which selects its members on the basis of scholar ship, leadership, character and service to the school.

Mertz, high school principal, is •an ex-of£icio member. It was through Mertz's efforts that the society was reactivated here in 1949 after it had been inactive for seven years. The original charter was granted in 1935 after the faculty had worked for two years to organize the chapter. Baird Cox, who was principal at that time, was instrumental in securing the charter. The society was created by the •National Education — Principals Association, of which Cox was a member. His efforts to organize the local chapter were successful and the group was active until 1942. In 1949, when Mertz came to the school, the chapter was again ec- tivated and 'has been in operation continually since that time. Candidates for membership are selected in the spring from the upper, five per cent of the.junior class, and in the fall from the up- Beauty That Abides Through All Time The beauty of the spirit is not dimmed by its earthly passing, Rather it shines all the more brightly in the transcendent realm of eternity.

It was the first direct move by an Allied leader to use old-fashioned secret diplomacy in seeking a basis for broad "cold war" negotiations between Russia and the North Atlantic treaty powers. Adenauer suggested, in a letter to Soviet Premier Nikolai A. Bul- ganin, that the current Russian- German trade discussions in Moscow might be turned into cold war talks. Alternatively, he said, Similar blasts had been issued by the Kremlin just before the North Atlantic treaty "summit" meeting in Paris and President Eisenhower's State of the Union message to Congress. "any other promising point departure" might be chosen. of President Eisenhower opened the diplomatic week by replying in just 44 words to a 10,000-word letter from Bulganin proposing that a conference of leaders of countries of every political slant be called to discuss world problems. - ' Eisenhower said that B-uIganin's letter contained nothing which he had not covered in his reply to a previous Bulganin. communication from QUOTES FROM NEWS By UNITED PRESS VIENTIANE, Laos—Prince Sou» JJUll iif^ilJO, Juaua -L 1JUVC wwu- • -IQCO fl phanou Bong whose two provinces!
