In effect, SummerfieW's declaration suggested that GOP success ntxt year and Gny Gabrielson's future as trie party's national chairman hinge more on wliat the party oflii-ers—and how soon—than on how It goc.s alxmt offering it to lite voters. 1'nllc.y roniiniftoc ScL Oabrielson, said he will appoint A policy-drafting committee by Ihc first week in January and lie hojw.s the national committee will have a policy statement whipped lull) shape by February. Gabriclson declared that the strategy group crystallized sentiments that "we should adopt a clear cut point of view and an affirmative program." He also told newsmen: ,'We didn't win In 194R because we didn't put up a fight. We think we will regain control of Congress in 1950. We are optimistic. If we fail were arc going to make a hell of a lot or noise In doing it." JNeither Suinmei field nor Oab- H"sori mentioned Thomas E. Desv- c'y of New York by name in discussing his defeat, ns last year's GOP presidential nominee. Rut Summerfield told the, committee: "God knows \ve need a change in strategy and tactics. "In campaign after oajnpai°n we have let the Democratic party make the issue and carry it to the people hy the inertia of our own programs." "We have told the people that we did not disagree in any Great measure with the objectives'oifllin- ed by the Democrat*, but that if we were elected we could carry out these same objectives better than our opponents. "The plain truth is that we have not given the American people what they have a right to expect and a ritjht to demand—a clear choice. The only exception, he said, was in the 13-SG congressional elections. Tlic Republicans won then because "our senators and congressmen met the opposition head on and gave thf American people a chance to choose." Kobbery Charges Against Airman Droooed by DEVALLS Bl,UPF.

COURIER \JK\V YORK (NBA)—Scarf-collars nnd cuffs that reverse from a black velvet side to one of plairi woolen make two other bids besides reversibility for the approval of today's penny-wise woman Scarves stay put without .1 stitch, thanks to a tiick-m collar design. Cuffs turn out from elastic bands. Hotli collar and cuffs can be reversed and interchanged to look like a whole drawerful of accessories. Typical switch is from the plaid woolen side (left) to Ihe black velvet side, which makes collar nnd cuffs look like an entirely different set of accessories (upper ri([ht). The switch (lower right), (o half-plaid h.llf- velvcl that comes from the trick of folding collar nnd cuffs is another proof of the versatility of these accessories.
