PAGE SIX Truman Stands PafforClapp Senate Committee Rebuffs Nominee for ' TV A Chairmanship WASHINGTON, Mar. 1.—(UP) — Undaunted by an initial senate setback. President Truman was still determined today to go down the Jine /or Gordon R. Clapp nnd David E.-'Llltenthal. Clapp's appointment as chairman of the Tennessee Valley Authority was rejected 7-5 yesterday by the Senate public Works Committee, and foes of Lilienthal saw (hh as foreshadowing defeat of his nomination lo head the Atomic Energy Commission. . The . President said at his news conference, however, thai he was still backing both men to the hilt, and Democratic leaders promised a strong floor fight to overturn (he committee's vote against C!app. Senate sources thought the vote on Clapp would have little bearing on Lillenthal's chances. They predicted that the Atomic Energy Committee would approve Lillen- Ihal's appointment by a sweeping majority. Highly jubilant over the Clapp development was Sen. Kenneth McKellar, D., Tenn.. who said it was a major victory in Ills cnni- imign against "communistic influences." • McKellar will make a further effort to cut down Lillentlial Monday when the nominee returns to the witness stand. He said he would question him at length. .McKellar nip.'.ntains (hat ' both LJlieiitJwl and clapp are unfit lo Sfirve. For weeks he hns shuttled between the two committees Introducing witnesses and evidence Which lie hoped would show they were guilty of Communist sympathies. . The senator said he was "rielicht- ed" at Clapp's rebuff and Drertlcl- ki the same fate for Lilienthal. Ke raid "anv senator reading the record of either hearing can't vote for either man." Chairman Bouike B. Hickenlooper, B., la., of the atomic committee ordered Ltlicnthal to return to the stand only a few hours after Clnpp was disapproved. CHURCH NEWS FIRST BAPTIST CIH1UCII E. C.

It 'Couldn't, Cassic thought. ; 1 Reno wns crowded and the tiny .'room in the hotel was sliiffy and | overheated. The wild reckless al- >mosphere of the ^vhole town made ; her feet slightly ill. And she hnled .the chilly-eyed lawyer Mike had : contacted for her. : Cassie had never before known what loneliness was. Not real loneliness. It was part of the air -?!l c _ b reathed. Every breath hurt. .It ached'in her chest and stayed in sort of a lump in her throat. •,.-.. And the worst of it was that it -was Parker she longed for. Parker with his thin brown face, and his strong hands, and his brown eyes. But it was useless to think of Parker. Useless to want him now Too lata. Four .weeks crept by. Mika wired her he was coming the 27th. That was the day before Thanksg.ving. She had to make up her mind v.'hat to do about Mike. Funny .how she had always imagined Mike to be the only love—the one real love of her life. She was fond , 9 1 him - His gayety and recklessness were attractive—they would be to any woman. But there was no depth to the feeling she had for him. It had no roots at all. An adolescent dream—was all Ilia', it had ever been, a dream she had clung to through her marriage like a glittering bauble clutched in a child's hand. And now it seemed to be all that was left * * » YHE day Mike was due, she put on a now black dress and a three-strand pearl choker necklace and the crazy new black hnl thatl;:!:ja like the leaning tower of Pisa, anc lots of make-up. She inci r...n si the airport She was glad to see Mike. She would have been glad to see anyone who could dispel in the least the cold feeling she had of being ~,o alone. Mike took her In his arms at once and; kissed her soundly, and she kissed him bncjc. There was a flash then ami she heard one reporter say to another, "That's Parker Hamilton's wife— you know—that new radio show in the East that's making such a hit She's gut here for the brush-off." They got into the taxi, and Mike turned and looked at her, his blue eyes examining her face shrewdly. "For Pete's sake, baby!" he said. "What's happened to you? Are you sick?" She shook her head. "I've been so lonesome I could have screamed. Every night the same thing over and over, lying awake, thinking and no one to talk to." He held her hand and stared at her. "Cassie, you're lying to me." "No, Mike. I haven't felt too good, but—" "You look physically ill to me." Her mouth trembled, and he pulled her against him und told the driver to drive somewhere, anywhere. "Now come on, baby," he said "let's have it." Cassie began to cry, fumbling in her purse for n handkerchief. There's nothing to tell." "All right, if you're goinf to bawl, we'll stop somewhere and have a drink first." The small cafe at the edge of town where the driver took them miraculously wasn't crowded. Mike led her to a small table in the corner. They sat on the same Side of the booth and Mike kept his arm around her. Pretty soon sipping a Manhattan, she quit shivering. _ "It's just like I told you before I left, baby, from now on it's you and me. That means you can unload any trouble OD me, no matter what it if." "Well, I—' Ujivcu't been feeling so hot." "That's wnat t thought. Why didn't you wire me? Have you been to the doctor? Cassie, you look like a ghost!" "Mike, I—I might as well tell you and get it over with. You aren't going to like it a bit." Mike looked at her and she could toll in ati instant that he knew. "You're going lo have u baby. That's it, isn't it?" • * t * JT was funny—Mike saying it in that gentle way. There didn't used to be any patience or gentleness in him, Cassic thought crnzily. "I found it out after I got here —for sure I mean." She twisted her handkerchief in her h.-.iuls. Mike gulped the rest of his tirink and signalled the waitress for two more. "Well, I guess that doesn't make any difference, does it? If that's what's worrying you, baby. I never counted on anything like that, but as long as it's you and me from now on—nothing else matters—not even that." "No, Mike. I've—chnnged my mind." "About me or about the divorce?" "Not about the divorce—about marrying you," she said quietly. Mike picked up the cherry from an empty glass and twirled it by its stem, "t guess maybe you're still in love with Parker, alter all. Is thai it?" He was trying hard lo keep his voice casual hut she could sec that his face was very white. "Yes," she agreed reluctantly, "I guess that's it." "I suppose you've heard every broadcast since you've been out here, and uawlcd yourself to sleep every night." "I'm going nhcnd with the divorce," she told him. "But we're alt washed up—you and me." "Oh Mike—I'm so sorry. I'm so slupiri, and I've made such a mess of everything, but I never wanted to hurt you, Mike. Never.'' "Why go ahead with the divorce at all it you're in love with him? Why?"
