C, national organizational secretary Demos Avow Not to Usurp Ike's Powers NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 4 (fl Adlai Stevenson pledged today Democrats will not encroach on President Eisenhower's executive powers, but he said Republicans can expect "honest criticism" if they inject politics into foreign policy. ; Speaking to about 1,000 of the party faithful at a $100-a-plate dinner, the 1952 presidential nominee cast the Democrats in the role of "loyal opposition" to the Eisenhower administration. . "I am sure that the great ma jority of Democrats ; and of inde pendent voters agree in wanting this GOP) administration to sue ceed as it -never has before in its task of defending the security and property of our own people and of expanding the hopeful freedom and justice for all peoples," Stevenson said..- Stevenson said that Democrats who won control of congress in last month's elections, "do not propose to usurp the powers and responsibilities of the Republican execu tive." Urging bipartisanship in foreign policy decisions, Stevenson said "appeasing Republican leaders at home has sometimes had priority over recognizing realities abroad." He said that such bipartisanship "must mean,-first of. all ... the vdimination of . domestte-'' -politics from conduct of foreign affairs." Stevenson spoke after the Dem ocratic national committee had elected Paul M. Butler, ' Indiana member, as its new chairman in a four -man race to succeed retiring Stephen A. Mitchell. Stevenson , said Butler, whose candidacy reportedly was opposed by former President Harry Truman,, "has the confidence of the entire party."

The brotherhood itself was or dered destroyed. The life of a high brotherhood official who supposedly was aloof from the underground was spared by Nasser's regime by a commuta tion late tonight. ' , The drastic actions to wipe out the leadership and suppress the fanatic organization altogether were ordered by a special military court after trials growing out of the attempt to kill Nasser. Seven other brotherhood leaders, nabbed in a roundup after an assassin tried to gun down Nasser in Alexandria Oct. 26, were given sentences ranging from 15 years to life. The shooting brought the dismissal last month of Egypt s president, Maj.-Gen. Mohamed Naguib, accused of abetting the revolt plot.

No Indictment Seen Possible After Hearing WASHINGTON, . Dec. 4 M Jus tice department lawyers were re ported today to have decided that no perjury prosecutions will be under taken as a result of the clashing testimony in the army - McCarthy hearings of last spring. The case, which played at center stage in public and televised set tings from late April until mid-June is being laid aside on a finding that it would be impractical if not impossible, to get an indictment from a grand jury on the maze of conflicting statements. Officially, the justice department says the whole matter is still under study.! But officials say a lengthy study of the hearing transcript has led to the conclusion that if false statements were made, the evidence to support a prosecution in court lust isn't available, The outcome of the department's scrutiny of the testimony was kept m-ettv closely under wraps wnne the senate prepared for and finally held its recent "censure" session which resulted two days ago in senate condemnation of certain conduct of Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy. The spring hearings, before a committee headed by Senator Mundt, R., s. D., were concerned with these two principal questions: 1. Whether McCarthy and the staff of his senate investigating committee had attempted improperly to obtain from the army preferential treatment for Pvt. G. David Schine, a committee aide. 2. Whether Army Secretary Robert T. Stevens and his aides sought to use Schine as a means to stop McCarthy investigations into army installations. The hearings also went into innumerable side issues. - - - i It - v1 l EDWIN BENCH Brush With Death Comes When Hunting Boat Sinks BURLEY, Dec. 4 "The next boatl I get for duck hunting will be about three times as big as the last one and absolutely unsinkable!"
