TUESDAY, MAT 8, 1958 (ARK.) COURIER PAGEFIVI Will Ike's Feeling Of Easing Tension Prove a Dud, Too? By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyii WASHINGTON (AP) — Presidents Truman and Eisen hower both reached a point in their White House stay when things began to look a little better to them around the world. Truman guessed wrong, and remained iii office long enough to find it out. Eisenhower has 21 months of his term left. That should be long enough to tell whether his present careful opt! ffilsm is justified. When Truman faced reporter: April 13, 1950, he had been in office five years and: one day. fr those five years, in which th wartime allies had split and th cold war had begun, this countr: had taken a number of steps to itop the spread of communism It had armed Greece and Tur key; it had created the Marshall Plan to get Western Europe back on its feet and it was succeeding; and it helped set up the North Atlantic Alliance. But It Spread Bui communism had spread nevertheless: after taking over th satellites, the Communists "got Czechoslovakia and the Chinese Prayer Room In Capitol Proves Valuable WASHINGTON \Jfi — The quietest room in the Capitol has been increasingly valuable to members of Congress, its sponsors said yesterday. The room is a small, softly lighted, resti'uHy decorated nook just off the capitol rotunda, halfway between the House and Senate chambers. It was opened in March for private prayer and meditation by members of Congress only. While scores of tourists often chatter and mill about a few yards attay, lawmakers may retreat through the double doors to a hushed interval alone, a break In the pressures of politics and legislative action. Rep. Hays, one of the sponsors of the project, said today it is too early for an adequate appraisal but the reaction so far has been "very wonderful." In the first week, he said, there were about 75 visits to the room. Others estimate an average of 10 visits a day since then. Hays said he was confident "the practice will grow as more and more members of the House and Senate become accustomed to the idea." SKIPPER OF GIANT - Capt Roy Lee Johnson has been named skipper of the Navy's super aircraft carrier, the USS Forrestal. He is a decorated World War II air officer or the carrier USS Hornet. The Forrestal is scheduled to be commissioned next fall Communists, late in 1949, took ov China. Nevertheless, the Truman ad ministration was cutting down its military spending and on April "* 1950, the President told newsm— the prospects for peace looked bet ter than at any time since th cold war started in 1946. Then in June the United State was in war in Korea and remaine< in war for the rest of 'Truman' term. The Eisenhower administrator explaining its increased reliance o: new weapons, is cutting down th size of the armed forces although Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, Arm: chief of staff, has taken a gloom: view of Army reductions. On military spending Truma: and Eisenhower faced the sam problem: the country couldn't al ford to stay fully mobilized indeflr itely. Both men sought a middl ground. "On Upswing;" Last week Eisenhower told news conference, "I confess I hav a feeling that things are on th upswing." But he said he coult take every single favorable- poln and balance it by something tha doesn't look too favorable. Eisenhower had obtained a trucf in Korea so there was no wai now And as hopeful signs o peace—perhaps—he noted Russia';, expressed willingness to sign an Austrian peace treaty and the growing confidence around th( world in this country's peacefu intentions. In addition the Red Chinese havi suggested talks to "relax tension.' Turning this picture around, El .ienhow ; er mentioned events whicl may mean serious trouble: the Red Chinese air power buildup op posite Formosa; the trouble ir South Vet Nam. Mayb Eisenhower's "feeling about "things on the upswing" wil turn out better than Truman's op timism about peace. Maybe. Three-Year-Old Flunks First Driving Lesson KALAMAZOO, Mich.

Irman 2/c Thomas F. Thompson State Income Tax Payments Up But Corporation Taxes Are Down LITTLE ROCK -<fl — Individual state income taxes have been boosted by around $158,000 this year, but corporation tax returns have fallen off nearly that much.
