State Department Gets Set for GOP Shakeup By JOHN M. HIGHTOWKK WASHINGTON (*—The StaU D«. partment, target of Republican attack for six years, got ready today to face the Inevitable^ Republican chakeup. Probably DO other agency In Washington outside the While House was so stunned by Gen Dwlght Eisenhower's election victory Tuesday night. Unquestionably >••' meant that heads will.roll. Es- imates of th« number of high officials and diplomats who will get the .-ax range from around 40 to 100.or more.. - , 'That Secretary Deari Acheson is out, no one disputes. He has planned for months to return to his Washington law practice whether Eisenhower or Gov. Adlal Stevenson succeeded Truman. The top echelon under Acheson embraces upwards of 20 persons, including an under secretary, deputies, and assistant secretaries: . In 'addition there are men who have been closely identified with Acheson's policies, such as Philip Jessup. ambassador at large, and policy- planning chief Paul Nltze, former Wall Street investment banker. Abroad a total of 72 ambassadors and ministers head up U. s. diplomatic missions. Of-those, department officials'said today, approximately 50* are "career foreign service officers and the rest are political appointees.. Many changes in foreign posts are expected to be worked out by the Eisenhower administration over the first few months of next year. The speculation Is. (hat he will accept resignations of ill the political appointees Including such ambassadors as Richard C. Patterson Jr. in Switzerland, Charles Ulrich Bay in Norway, Walter s. Gifford in Britain, William O'Dwyer in Mexico and Pete Jarman in Australia. Elsenhower also may weed out some career foreign service officers who for one reason or another have outlived their usefulness or may want to be relieved of their duties. The big mystery in the department is what will happen to two career diplomats who have been repeatedly assailed by various Republicans in Congress Including Sen. McCarthy of Wisconsin: .They are John Paton Davles now attached to the U. S. diplomatic staff in Germany, and John Carter Vincent, diplomatic agent and minister in Tangier. Both men were identified with China policy prior to the loss of China to the Communists. More GIs Return SAN FRANCISCO (f, — The transport Gen. E. D.
