(NEM~Baclc In th» WO's, Douglas McKay found him«lf In the middle of a tricky two- way hand-to : hioulh struggle with dollars. It was depression time, and a» mayor of Salem, he was fighting to keep the city out of the red. And as an automobile dealer in private Hie, he was fighting to keep his own business from collapsing. McKay pulled both of them though, and out of that experience, his . associates say, he lias learned to b« t hard man .with a dollar, particularly when the dollar belongs to the public. They expect he'U exhibit his sain* conservative attitude toward spending when he takes his chair as new Secretary of the Interior in the Eisenhower cabinet. McKay, who went mi from Salem city hall to .become governor 'Of Oregon, a post he has held since 1SW, It no stranger to reclamation, •nd flood control programs, too major ttenu In the Interior Department's 1 business. He if also one of the .top automobile dealers in a atat* where great political strength has been built up through such dealership!.

V Morse to Vote with GOP; Will Disciplinary Action Be Taken? -By JOWf CHADW1CK WASHINGTON to — Sen. Wayne Morse's decision to vote with the Republicans on the organization of the Senate despite his bolt from the party still left unanswered today whether r disciplinary action will be taken against him. Republican senators have been reluctant to"»ay U they plan to atrip the Oregon senator of the seniority he, has acquired by his eight, years o/ service in, the Senate, and of his choice'assignments on the Senate Armed Services and Labor Committees. ( Morse quite the Republican party "and declared himself*an Independent during ," the presidential campaign after turning against Gen. Dwight D. Elsenhower and throwing* his support to Gov. Ad.a E, Stevenson of Illtrlois, the Democratic nominee. ' " He announced Saturday, however, that he ..would vote with the republicans on organizing the new f mate in: the. belief'.that the incoming administration of Presl- c'cnt-elect Elsenhower should have full responsibility for the conducl of Ihe government. But he said he would nonethe ; less maintain bla status as an,Independent and would not participate In either Republican or Dem ocratio caucuses. Sen. Welker <R-Idaho), com mentlng.'on Morse's statement tha .the Republicans should have ful respaoclbntty, told V reporter, think w« can have that respon •iblltty without his vole." Welker said he would leave com m«nt on . :lon to others. Democrats have shown no dls- Kj.sltion to contest Republican con- rpl of the new Senate even though, without Morse," the : Republicans will only outnumber them 48 to 47. Had Morse decided to vote with he Democrats they could have seized control at beat only until Republican vice President-elect Richard NIxori took office Jan. 20 and was. In position, to tilt the scales against them. Morse said he felt "11 would be politically unethical for me to take advantage of the closely , driven lines In the Senate by. voting' against .the Republicans In the matter- of .Senate organization." He added, however, that ; he would "not hesitate to vote against the Republicans on specific legislative issues when I think they ure'wrongr." He has often done so in the past. —Morse said he was perfectly willing to leave to the'Senate the determination of his seniority rights and other privileges and declared he has' refused to discuss his status with either Republican or Democratic senators.
