TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1955 BLTTHKVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWg PAGE THREE Sen. Smith Backs Nixon for Second Term WASHINGTON (APJ—Vice* President Nixon, a target for' much Democratic criticism, was backed by Sen. II. Alexander Smith (R-NJ) today for second place on the Republican ticket in 1956. Smith, who recently told a New Jersey rally he Is dedicating 'the next two years toward getting President Eisenhower renomlnatr ed, said in an interview he thinks Nixon deserves another term. . "I think Nixon is a fine, upstanding' young man who has done a good Job .for the country," he said. While Nixon himself declined comment on recent Democratic attacks on him, GOP National Chairman Leonard W. Hall said in a statement last night there is under way "a highly organized campaign to besmirch the vice president of the United States." "The technique is to smear him by falsely accusing him of smearing others," Hall said. "This is one of the lowest tricks in politics and in this instance destructive only to its perpetrators.' No Proof Hall said Nixon's "detractors attack him without offering an iota of proof, because they have none," and he continued: "No doubt some democrats find H painful to have their 20-year record examined and held up under the searchlight, but this does not justify them in stooping to the methods they are using against the vice president." Former Gov. Tnomas £. Dewey of New York told While House newsmen yesterday he hopes the 1956 GOP tic.ket will be Eisenhower and Nixon. Dewey and Hall were among Eisenhower's guests last night al a stag dinner \Vith a distinctly political flavor. Atty. Gen. Browne!! and seven GOP national comit- teemen were among those invited. Dewey, the GOP presidential nominee in 1944 and 1948. also Was invited to spend the night at the White Home. The President ha.s made no known commitment about Ifr66. As for Nixon, Sen. Smith said it is not true, as many Democrats have asserted, that the vice president accused them of being soft toward communism. Th vice president has told- friends he hit hardest against Democrats he listed as "left - wing, ADA" (Americans for Democratic Action). He was pictured as somewhat surprised that many conservative Democrats had joined in the chorus of protest. The "left-wing, ADA" phrase occurred often in Nixon's speeches. He also declared In Bullc, Mont., on Oct. 22 that the "Communist party is determined to conduct its program within the Democratic party." In San Francisco Oct. 29, Nixon said that if "the Sievenson-MUch- ell-ADA-left wing of the Democratic party" got the kind of Congress it wanted "President Eisenhower's security risk program will be sniped at, badgered and sabotaged at every turn.' In his election eve summarization of the campaign. Nixon said the voters faced the alternative of continuing Eisenhower's program of ."integrity, firmness and moderation" or restoring "Trumnnism," which he .said in 1952 "meant hopeless inability to deal with the four- bended monster that was Korea, communism, corruption and controls." Sen. Monroney (D-Okla) said in an interview It was this kind of campaigning that Democrats re- : MM Stymied As Producer By Legal Ties HOLLYWOOD «•>—A sampling of movie legal opinion today indicated that- if Marilyn Monroe tries U> make her own pictures, no one is going to see them until 1958. Movie bigwigs queried were unanimous that the gorgeous blonde hicks a legal leg to stand on in her recent announcement she would form her own production company. The sources agree that 20th Century-Fox's current contract with Marilyn will repel any legal thrusts until the 1958 expiration date. Most outspoken is published Billy Wilkerson of the HolJywoqrt P.eport- er, often the trade paper voice of the major studios. Said Wilkerson: "Marilyn Monroe ... is being fed some stupid advice," But the publicity department, could well be the influential stockholder in Marilyn's new corporate structure. If so, look for Monroe and Zanuck to kiss and make up amid more popping of flash bulbs and pounding of typewriters. "There's no space grabber quite like -a fight between a big siudir. and iu biggest star. Although industry sources all agree that the stuoio will win any legal battle with Marilyn, many at them side wiih her personally ir Che fight. "The studio should remember a few years back," said one, "when Marilyn was the only thing it had who could get the old man away irom the television set."

Andre Lallemand, an astronomer at the Paris Observatory, and Maurice Duchesne, an electronics expert at the National Center for Florida Voters Name Solon WEST PALM BEACH, PI a 1^1- Florida's 6th District voters will choose between Democrat Paul Rogers and Republican J. Herbert Burke in a special election today to select a U.S. representative to fill the post 'vacated in December by the death of Rep. Dwight Rogers, father of Paul. Burke, a native of Chicago who moved to Florida in 1949, said during his campaign that he "ran gel more for the people of the district under Eisenhower than a Democrat can get." He visited President Eisenhower in Washington after his nomination by the GOP. Rogers promised to continue his father's policies. He said he favored completion of the Florida flood control program, economy in government and a strong national defense. Scientific Research, have been. working on the device (or 11 years., Duchesne will soon take the odd- j shaped contraption of glass, and 1 metal.tubes to the observatory atj Saint-Michel-de-Provence in southern France, where skies are generally very clear. He will attach it to a 47-inch telescope which, say the inventors, ' thus will become considerably more powerful than the 200-inch j »jaut at Mt. Palomar, Calif. Little serious .star gazing is done these days by peering directly through a lens. Astronomers work .mostly from photographs, which { 'show nothing to the layman but i little dots or streaks of light. This! one, the inventors claim, will be able to take the same pictures in four minutes that now require six to eight hours ol exposure — and take them better. i "It should give a.sironomersl enough new observations lo work | on for 50 years." Lallemand said .! In the new camera the feeeble | flecks of starlight — called photons i — Will first hit a thin glass plate j covcrcu with n layer of antimony and cesium, one of the rarer elements. This layer transforms the [photons into electrons, which then j pass through high-tension elcc- | trodcs that step up their strength I from 2 elecloti'Volts to 40.000 or j 150,000. The electrons are what,hit; a photographic plate less than an] inch in diameter.

Italy's 'Desert Lion' Succumbs ROME i#» — Marshal Rodolfo Graziani, Italy's grizzled "Desert Lion" of World \W II, died today at a Rome clinic where he .was to have undergone an operation. He was 72 and an unreoentant Fascist, who had been stripped of his many honors and lived in recent years in retirement. For a time five years ago, Graziani appeared to emerge as the active leader of the neo-Fast Italian Social Movement iMSD. Bui younger leaders crowded him out and in 1953 lie was chosen 'honorary president" of the minority 'action. Graziani after World War I re- conquered North Africa's Libyan tribesmen for Mussolini's empire and led II Duce's forces in Easi Africa to victory in the Italian war against Ethiopia. But World War II brought him defeat, disgrace and finally a traitor's trial as a Nazi collaborator. PORT ARTHUR, Tex began 15 months ago a.s a mass strike against many Port Arthur retail lirms. bringing charges of a Communist conspiracy to seize the oil industry, has dwindled to picketing of four firms today. Six business houses reached agreement with a union local yesterday. Eight firms settled Dec. 31. Earlier, two establishments went out of business, Iwo others settled, and pickets were removed from another. Whether the union gained bargaining rights, chief issue in the strike, was not revealed. Terms of the- settlement were unannounced. For more than a year pickets walked in front of laundries, restaurants, hotels and other business houses in this industrial city of tile Texas coast. Texas Atty. Oen. John Ben Shepperd declared the area was being u.sed as a testing ground for a Communist plot to take over the oil industry and principal Texas ports. After the State Industrial Commission ruled the Distributing. Processing and Office Workers of America, originator of the strike, was either Communist dominated or controlled, the CIO. with which the DPOWA had only "interim" affiliation, ousted the union. A CIO union took over the strike with promises to fight it to a successful conclusion if it took 10 years. Managements of 11 firms yester- ( day unexpectedly withdrew Dis-1 trict Court .suits against the union tor 5750,000 damages. An attorney representing the eight firms which settled Dec. 31 said the agreement reachd then included recognition of the employ- es to bargain collectively under i the law.

BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS DRINKING DAYS Another (hing lhai mans- of us learned during our drinking days was that enforced sobriety was generally not a very pleasan 1 experience. Some of us were able lo stay sober, occasionally, for periods of days, weeks and even years. But we did not enjoy our sobriety. We felt like martyrs. We became irritable, difficult to live and work with. We persisted in looking forward to the time when we might be able to drink again. Now that we are in A A. we have a new outlook on sobriety. We enjoy a sense of release, a feeling of freedom from even the desire lo drink. Since we cannot expect to drink normally at any time in the future, we concentrate on living a full life without alcohol today. There is not a thing we can do about yesterday. And tomorrow never comes. Today is the only day we have to worry about. And we know from experience that even the "worst" drunk can go 24 hours without a drink. When we first heard about AA, it seemed miraculous tha.t any one who had really been an uncontrolled drinker could ever achieve and maintain lh« kind of sobriety that older AA members talked about. Some of UK were inclined to think that ours was a special kind of drinking, that our experiences had been "different," (hat AA might work for others but that it could do nothing for us. Others among us, who had not yet been hurt seriously by our drinking, reasoned that AA might be fins for the Skid Row drunks but that we could probably handle the problem by ourselves.

MAIN "BRAIN" JOINS THE NAVY—The new Naval Ordnance Research Calculator (top), recently built for the U. S. Navy's Bureau of Ordnance by International Business Machines Corp., is the fastest electronic computer in the world. Known as the NORC, it can add, subtract and multiply numbers as fast as it can read ' them—at the rate of a million digits a second. One of the jobs the NORC win do to speed the Navy's weapon.-: program will be performing the billions of mathematical operations necessary to determine the size and shape of the air cavity that forms around an object moving through water. For example, control of missile No. 1, shown in the drawing, would be lost because its size, shape and speed create a cavity so largo that fin and rubber surfaces do not touch the water. Missile No. 2 creates a smaller cavity, the steering surfaces engage the water, and a more accurate course U> the target is insured. !7L RAZORBACK Serving The Best Seafood In Town!
