MONDAY, MARCH 28, 1958 BOTHEYTLM (ARK.)' COVRIBH PAGE rm Nationalists' Determination Is Hardened TAIPEI, Formosa (^—Nationalist determination to light for Que- Moy and Matsu has been further hardened by publication of the Yalta papers, The Nationalists, feel that the papers prove their Jong-standing contention that conessions were made 10 Russia at their expense. They have all along depicted the Chinese, Reds as puppets of Moscow, and, by this reasoning, would regard any bloodle&s withdrawal from their remaining offshore islands as a further yielding to Russia. AU present indications are that Chiang Kai-shek and other leaders here will resolutely refuse any deal that might involve giving up Que- inoy and Mausu without a fight. ANTHONY EDEN, CAMPAIGNER: In Wales in 1948 (above), or or anywhere else, he's good for 2,500 extra voles from the women. SIR ANTHONV EDK.V AT 57: From his silvery hai rlo the tips of highly-polished shoes, he ratiitatcs six feet of charm. Eden Closeup: Charming Sir Anthony: How Will He Be as Prime Minister? EDITOR'S NOTE: Reports from London presist in the belief Churchill will step down, as prime minister very soon—and that his successor will lie Sir Anthony Kden, Ions-time foreign secretary and glamour boy of British politics. Here's the first of a four- part closetip by NEA's London correspondent that shows what sort of man "Charming Sir Anthony" is and how England feels about him. LONDON--(NEA)—Britons are wondering what sort of prime minister Sir Anthony Eden will make. Britons a king was forced to give up the British throne because he Will Churchill's cigar continue to cast a long shadow over British politics? Has Edca lived in the shadow of other men too long to have a substance of his own? Neither of these questions bothers Eden's friends. The Cuurchill-Edcn relationship, they point out was a Eden's > found It necessary to de- collaboration in which Eden willingly -took a back seat. What worries Eden's backers Is The Legend. He will have to Iivi> it down, they say, if he is ever to succeed as prime minister. The Legend hns to do with his perennial youth. At 38, Eden was the youngest British foreign secretary in modern times; at 57. he was .still foreign secretary. He i.s spoken of as the Peter P:tn of Politics, the Golden Boy who refused to gro'^v up. It has to do with hii glamor, too. Stanley Baldwin once ronuirkcri: "Anthony is Rood for 2500 ext ra votes for the Conservative Party, in any constituency he visits." And Baldwin meant women volm. Women take one look at Eden and go hnme and eye their husbands' waistlines critically. From his silvery hair to lus hliih- Jy-poli.shecl shoe-caps, Eck'n '^ six feet of charm. His Bu^s Bunny smile merely adds to it. He hns hud a hat, the famous black Hombum. named after him. Tailors have copied his clothes. Which is all right—"But who wants Gregory Peck as prime- minister?" as one of his closest friends despairingly remarks. His divorce miiy huve m;i(ie him popular in some quarters, but it Is still rated ns a political liability. Within the memory of most chose n divorcee us the woman he loved. Eden obtained his decree on grounds of desertion in 1950, but UK lute IKS June, 1954, Lord Beaver- bruok's Didly Express (no friend of fend him against unpleasant m 7 mors. "Not only Is Mr. Eden free from the slightest stain in bis own pri- clared. "but the mere suggestion of to the vale life," the Daily Express de-; ' conviction they are harking ba> such a possibility is offensive." Knight Eden is the target of other criticisms. He may be a whiz at interna- tiouul diplomacy, so the argument runs, but how would he fare in a Home A flairs debate? What does he know about economics? Has he ever had to grapple with a budget? Settle a major labor dispute? Eden has never made a great .speech, his critics point out. Shrewd ones, brave ones, skillful ones, yes. But never great ones. \ He once wrote a travel book in | which all the cliches in the world j are chained together in 17 chapters. | Counter-balanced against nil these | criticisms te the feeling among average Britons that it would be indecent to name anyone but Sir Anthony as prime minister. In this ' .ck Eden of the 1930's- in Shining Armor, -the the youthful St. George who tried to slay the Dragon of Fascism. Almost alone of British politicians, Eden was right about Mussolini. He was right about Hitler. And he did resign from the govern- < ment rather than be a party to the j appeasement of these dictators.

OP)—The temperature was 15 in Hutchinson and when fifth-grader Harold Stovqr, 10, showed up at school without a coat, the teacher was puzzled. "Don't you have a heavy coat at home?" she asked. Harold nodded. "Why don't you wear it?" "I don't need it." And with that he showed his teacher he was wearing nine shirts. of Commons a graying politician recalled those early days. "Eden," he said, "was what every man secretly admires and hopes to be — an "Unloriunaiely," he sighed, downing his glass on trie bar, "ideals are luxuries that few of us can afford nowadays.
