WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER HKWS PAGE THREB Arkcmsons in Washington— Pay Increase Makes McCleilan Ineligible for Judicial Position. By GOKUON BKOWN WASHINGTON (AP) — Now thai the bijl to increase pay for Congress anil federal judges, has passed Congress, Sen. John L. McClullan (l)-Ark) is barred from any judicial appointment in the next six years. •fr There is no indication now that McClellnn would get such an appointment. But it lie did, he couldn't accept it because of a provision in the constitution. This provision says, in effect, Unit no senator or representative can accept appointment to an office when Congress created or gave a pay increase to during tile term lo which the senator or representative was elected. Terms Runs lo 1961 Since McClellan's term runs to Jan. 1, 1901, he is out of consideration for the next six years. There lias been speculation in the past that McCleilan could have a judicial appointment if he wanted it and if a vacancy existed. When a friend rec'-ntly pointed out to McClelian that he probably is out of the judicial picture for the next six ycar.s, the senator is reported to have said: ••Well, I didn't want to be a judfic anyway."

The birthday celebration and dinner has been an annual event during past years at a near date when as many as possible of her kin mi^ht be present There has been,some speculation around Washington recently that McCleilan might be a possible Democratic vice presidential candidate next year. McCJellan achieved considerable fame during the Army-McCarthy hearings last year, occupies a very high position in Senate leadership circles and Ls 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 McCleilan believe he wouldn't be particularly interested in th» vicr presidency. Sen. Fulbright (D-Ark) was in somewhat the name 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 llt . t tll( rl to Arkansas to have a vice presi- TRANSLATE ITALIAN OPERA — Mrs. Martha Winburn England, an instructor of English at Smith College, Northampton, Mass., collaborated with James Durhin, Jr., in translation of Rossini's opera, "Lit Cenerentola."

Asia, expressed confidence in Diem's ability to solve the nation's critical internal problems. He said Britain, France and all other re- sponsible nations concerned share this feeling.
