COURIEE HEWS PAGE THBEB Arkonsons in Washington— Pay Increase Makes McClellan Ineligible For Judicial Position By GORDON KKOWN WASHINGTON (AP) — Now that the bi^l to increase pay for Congress and federal judges has passed Congress, Sen.

L. .YEAGER STEELE — Mrs. Laura Harrison, mentioned as the oldest resident of this community in ihe Boot- heel, celebrated her 00th birthday Sunday. She was born In Rome, Ga., February 28, 1859. and came via Arkansas to locate in the Denton ,sel- tlemenl in 1895, four miles northwest of Stcele. The area \va-s heavily timbered, but now has but few trees. A dinner was arranged at the i ^"Arkansas to"hIve'Y'vlc~e p'resT home of her daughter, Mrs. Newt (Fanner Denton, with whom she resides so that kin from St. Louis and distant points might attend. She is the survivor nf a family of seven. Her father lived to be 05 years old. Ijointmcnt. Hut if he did, he couldn't accept it because of a provision In the constitution. This provision say.s, in effect, that no semi tor or representative can accept appointment to an office when Congress created or gave a pay increase to during the term to which the senator or representative was elected. Terms Kuiib- to 1961 Since McClellan's term runs to Jan. 1, 1961, he Is out of consideration for the next six years. There has been speculation in the past that McClellan could have a judicial appointment if he wanted it and if a vacancy existed. When a friend recently pointed out to McClellan that he probably is out, of the judicial picture for the next six years, the senator is reported to have said: "Well, I didn't want to be a judge anyway." There has been,some speculation around Washington recently that McClellan might be a possible Democratic vice presidential candidate next year. McClellan achieved considerable fame during the Army-McCarthy hearings last year, occupies a very high position in Senate leadership circles and Is highly regarded by his colleagues. He was asked recently while on a national television program whether he is a candidate for the presidential nomination. He answered an emphatic "no." The question wasn't asked as to the vice presidency. However, friends of McClellan believe he wouldn't be particularly interested in tlu: vice presidency. Sen. Fulbright (D-Ark) was in .somewhat the same position in 1952. He was prominently mentioned but didn't particularly want the job. He said at the time he let his, name be offered only because of the honor it might bring Her first marriage was to Henry Bomar. Alter his death she was married to WiliJum Han'i.son. dent.

In a meeting at Independence Palace, the Nationalist premier told Dulles he is completely stais- fied with arrangements drawn up by the eight Manila Pact powers at Bangkok last week for Viet Nam'.T defense.

Diem described the two chief problems facing his government as the resettlement of some 700,000 refugees from the Communist North and the neutralization of spe-; ci'al interest groups which are hindering the refugee program.
