Jr., said he Is "highly- pleased" with resultn of the accelerated program. . Solicitations were divided into Just two, two-hour periods yesterday. ,By the close of the solicitation periods better than -$10.000 had been report^. Today was set aside for final reporting and cleanups. Reports from workers continued to come Into the City Hall office of the Chamber of Commerce today. Slowest division In reporting thus far has been the employes division. This is understandable, Mr. Huffman said, afi this group has more contracts to make than any other division Half ol the advanced gifts divi- •lori .has been reported while only seven of 236 firms have submited employe reports. Thus far, 213 of 1444 prospects have been reported. Board to Meet A meeting of the Chest's board of directors lias been scheduled tentatively for tomorrow afternoon, Mr. Huffman eald. "At that time, we hop* to be able to be far enough along with the campaign to submit recommendations for a cleanup drive," he stated. It Is believed that the stepped-up pattern of this year's drive may become a fixture in Blytheville Community Chest campaigns. Many workers have pointed out that much less time was consumed by volunteer solicitors in this year's spectly campaign. Just how it will compare with previous drives financially probably will not be known until the late this week. In this connection, Mr. Hufiman made a special plea for workers and chairmen to get their reports promptly.

Taft's sud-' don blast at President-elect Eisenhower for his choice of a secretary of labor today posed the possibility Eisenhower could face as rebellious a Congress as those President Truman had in recent years. Congressmen were wondering*— < , whether the Ohio senator's blUcr denunciation of Elsenhower's selection of Martin P. Dm kin to tho labor post—Tail culled it "Incredible"—meant 1. All-out war between the forces of Elsenhower and Taft in .(lie in coming Republican administration; or, 2. A temporary, isolated blowup growing out of Taft's tenderness toward his own .Taft-Hartley labor relations law. If tlie answer turns out to be "yes" to the first question, then the result could be the same frustration of Eisenhower's . legislative • program that : has afflicted many of eTruman's proposals, Throughout the Truman administration, conscrvatlve'southern senators have joined \yith Republicans to block most "Fair'Dcal" domestic. legislation.

Suggested Editorial Controls Draw Fire .* By WILLIAM F. AUBOGAST t WASHINGTON CAP) — A suggestion that Congress seek by law to limit the edltoriil space a newspaper may devote to a political candidate today was emphatically opposed by a congressional committee Cherry to Confer with 2 PSC Members Named by McMath LITTLE ROCK «1 — Speculation on the future of two members of the Arkansas Pubjlc Service Commission, appointed by outgoing Oov. Sid McMath, was revived yesterday when Gov.-elcct Francis Cherry said he would confer with the men soon. Cherry said only that he would talk with C. Howard Gladden and John R. Thompson. Neither Thompson nor Gladden would comment on the governor-elect's statement, olher than to say Ihat they would be pleased to meet with him at Cherry's convenience. No mention was made of the chairman of Ihe 3-man Commission, Lcland Lealherwood of Hot Springs. Leathcrwood, was appointed last summer to serve out Ihe yncxplred lerm of the late Judge Ecolt Wood. Public service commisstoners are appointed to staggered,' 6-year terms. Gladdcn's still has two years to serve, and Thompson has four. However, the commissioners traditionally serve at the will of the governor. . Cherry announced his third ma as state Insurance commissioner. The appointment of Gentry, who Is the father of Lcffel Gentry, Cherry's campaign manager and chairman of the Democratic Stale Committee, brought out that the elder Gentry once was removed from the post by legislative action and is not qualified to serve under strict interpretation of the law. Gentry first was appointed state Insurance commission by former Gov. J. M. Futrell In 1933. .When Carl E. Bailey was elected governor, ,he asked Gentry to resign, but the lawyer refused. Act 2 of the 1937 General Assembly aholtsh- cd the Job and created It In a modified form for a 4-year term. Bailey appointed M. J. Harrison to succeed Gentry. Gentry unsuccessfully challenged the Acl In court. When he takes office under Cherry, he will serve under the act that ousted mm. One of the provisions of the law Is that the commissioner must have "not less than five years experience In some branch of the Insurance business." Gentry said yesterday lhal he The suggestion was , made by* Rep. Clare E. Hoffman (R-Mich) to a special House committee studying federal election laws with a view to recommending changes to the new Congrcs\ Hoffman will head the Important House Government Operations Committee starling next year. "It's just unconstitutional," said Chatrmtm Bogss <D-La) -when asked what he thought about Hoffman's proposal. "Impractical," commented Ucp. Kcatjng of New York, top Republican on the committe. "If? unworkable and unconstitutional," was the reaction of nep. Karstcn (b-Mo). "You can't do anything about It if a paper wants to favor one candidate editorially," said Rep. McCulloch Ill-Ohio). "The Constitution gurantees the freedom of the press to print what it wanls.' "Why shouldn't there be some limit on the editorial space" newspaper may give to a. candidate? Hoffman asked, citing the present law limiting financial aid to a candidate. Might Involve Complications Hoffman admitted that there might be some complications Involved, .and later told a reporter ho knew he had "put his foot in It" by making such a suggestion, but still contended he thought li a good Idea. Ho said If individuals are restricted as lo th6 amount of mone> they may contribute to a campaign, a newspaper should be limited to the space 11 gives candidates because, he said, "some of these editorials arc nothing jor nf yolnlment yesterday, naming I has never been In the Insurance Littl* Rock Attorney V.

He argued, too, that his suggestion did not run counter to Hie constitutional guarantee of a free press: "You're limiting a man's freedom of Speech when you Ilnvrt his purely financial contributions, aren't you? The same principle's Involved." Editor John Knlgbt or the De- troll Free,Press disagreed. "As usual. Rep. Hoffman Is talking through his hut," he said. "He should re-read the Constitution.' Hoffman testified after Arthur Summerflcld, chairman of the Republican National Committee and President - elect Elsenhower's choice us poslmnsler general, crui- tloned against hasty changes lii the law.' ".. 11 Convicted Reds Executed Slansky, 10 Others Hanged in Prague By RICHARD A. O'UEGAN VIENNA, -Austria (/F/ — Rudolf Slansky, former boss of the Czecho- ' Slovak Communist Party, was hanged today with 10 others who once worshipped, at the shrine'of Joseph .Stalin. They died at Prague's Pankrac prison—as tral-' tors to Stalinism. Prague radio announced the executions, carried out pflly six days after the 11 were sentenced to death. This foresrmdowed a possible • new y and even broader purge of Czechoslovak Communist ranks. Eight of those executed. Including Slansky, were Jews whose wooden confessions in their trial had the appearance of a concerted attack by the Communist Party on world Jewry. Three others who ware tried drew life sentences. Slansky with former Foreign Minister Vtodo dementis and the others confessed to a long list of crimes against stainlsm. Those included •'. "Trotskylle, Zionist, bourgeois-nationalist" activities, plotting with' "Anglo-American Imperialists" and other actions Communism regards a? treason. Most of the purge victims had been high In Communist Party councils, giving the trial the ap* pcarance of a clim.is of a struggle for power between Slansky and President Klcrnenl Gottwald. But Ihc anti -Zionist tone of the pro- cei'dingsi ndicated the purge was to spread to all the other satellite Communist countries and perhaps even to the Soviet republics Inside the USSR.
