A« .in organisa- tion dedicated to helping meet the needs ot young women, it offers varied opportunities for personal officer before whom the representative of the j development and effective citizenship in a dc airline is to appear. The citation for the ICC hearing grew out of Ozark's obtaining authority from the U. S. Civil Aeronautics Board at Washington to abandon the Quad City Airport. Gov. Stratton was reported by the Telegraph's Springfield correspondent to be "jo incensed" at this development when he was in Washington recently that he and U. S. Sen. Everett M. Dirksen went before the CAB to register their protest and did succeed in momentarily having the permission to abondon rescinded, but later it was mocracy.

Protected by Official Alertness A» disclosures are made in Washington under the FHA inquiry about cheating itinerant home siding installers, Altonians can be thankful for two things* Their city building ordinance enforcement program under the last several administrations has screened out a lot of the gyp artists. The building infection department's program was given thorough support by the Greater Alton Association of Commerce—which actually terminated one of its memberships over the fight it was making. Altonians, then, probably have not been hit as hard by the racket uncovered in the FHA investigation as folks in some towns with less alert city and civic leadership. "Oh, Waller, you mustn't fall in Greek! It's such a valuable study—why, that's the only class we have together!" Administration foes may have thought they had a chance for a behind-the-hand "uh-luih" the other day. MIA Commissioner (niy T. Ilolliday, appointed under President Eisenhower's administration, resigned amid development* that indicated an investigation into his agency. Sclf-sati.sfaction of the "ami's", however, should be short-lived. They must soon realize that the current procedure marks a contrast indeed to what went on under the Truman administration. Apparently President Eisenhower is not interested in red herrings. An appointee is a friend just as long as he serves his country well. When the service goes wrong, the assumption.arises that the "friend" is not showing friendship for the administration. That seems logical. Of course it appears that the current investigation will go deep into records of the past, too. » » » * » Folks who really pl.m their future seldom regret their past. Pearson's Merry'Go-Round Cards Stacked Against Dulles WASHINGTON — The importance and difficulty of Secretary of State Dulles' European mission are illustrated by the back•stage diplomatic conversations which occurred in Washington before he left. What happened was that when President Eisenhower first made up his mind to intervene in Indochina, our Western Allies were immediately contacted and asked for joint cooperation. They replied in the negative. This negative word was received by the White House before Secretary Dulles and Admiral Radford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had their important secret session with congressional leaders of both par- lies to sound them out on Indochina. In fact, French Ambassador Bonnet conferred with Dulles at 10:30 a. m., just before lJuiles saw the Senators at 2:30 Saturday. At the latter meeting, Admiral Radford proposed military inter vention by the United State alone. He wanted to send lorn airplane carriers from the Philippines to the Indochinese coast. The Senators immediately Demanded that the British, French, and our other Western Allies cooperate. What the Senators and Congressmen did not know, anc what Secretary Dulles did not tell them, was that the Allies already had been approached and had declined to cooperate So Dulles has been trying to put across, lace-to-face, in Paris and London, what he failed to put across when dealing through imbassadors. UlclirM Mun The richest man in the U.S.A., il L. Hunt of Texas, recently received a call from the man who loaned him his first dollar. Hunt was slopping ul the May- Dower Hotel in Washington when Emory S. Avant, manager of a much more modest hotel, knocked on his door. At first Hunt didn't answer. He was talking on the long-distance phone. Finally he came lo the door, but did not open it. "Who is it?" he asked cautiously. "Emory Avant of Kl Dorado, Ark,," was the reply. Hunt unlocked the door and let his caller in. Avant had been publisher of the El Dorado Times back in the days before Hunt drilled his first oil well. Now he is manager of the Manchester Hole! on Hth and M Streets in Washington. Hunt remembered him, though he didn't seem loo enthusiastic about seeing him, perhaps because Avant was peeved over the fact that ho had written Hunt in Texas and received in reply merely some literature on Ihe Bricker Amendment. "That's not the kind of hrtish- ofl to give an old friend", suid Avanl. "Do you remember when I used to take .you out to the cafeteria and buy you meals 1 ."' Hunt said be did remember. He also remembered hov he had come into the Kl Dorado Times office to borrow stationery, and didn't know when he could pay it back.

Dnvid Lmvrcncc Oppcnheimei* Suspension Is Tragic Event WASHINGTON, April 15 -The sensation of the hour here continues to be the decision* of the President and the Alomie Energy Commission to suspend the clearance ot J. Robert Oppen- hcimer to be k science adviser to the government. When the Secretary of Defense, Charles E. Wilson, said at his news conference that, while he has "the greatest sympathy for anyone who made a mistake and has .reformed", he though "they ought to be reformed somewhere else than in the military services", il was laken by many reporters present to mean that he had reference to Dr. Oppen- helmer. -The noted scientist has admitted his earlier associations with Communist en uses and bus acknowledged his mistakes. Dr. Oppcnheimer was a consultant to Ihe Defense Department's research and development board, and Secretary Wilson says the whole board .was dropped and that this "was a smooth way of curing that as far HS the Defense Department was concerned". This may explain in part tho sudden publicity about Ihe case. The New York Times on Tuesday morning was one of the few papers that explained the circumstances under which the Op- penhoimor controversy w a s launched in the press this week. The Atomic Energy Commission in its statement immediately afterward rocoRni/ed that Dr. Oppenlieimer had made public Ihe documents in the case. It said, however, it was his privilege to do so. This correspondent reported yesterday that il was being assumed generally that the publicity was due to a desire to head off an attack by Senator McCarthy. But it lurns out now lhal the purpose of motivation by those on Ihe Oppenlieimor side was lo endeavor to win support in the court of public opinion and influence, if possible, the judgment soon lo be issued by the special three-man board. Undoubtedly reports had reached llu- Oppenheiiner side that the I ward might soon render an unfavorable judgment and ihnt it might come in a few days. Hence, it is conceivable thai the publicity was really designed to reverse Hie trend of official thinking. There is reason to believe thai Iho case has already been heard, (ho facts assembled and the criteria established in other cases which would make il doubtful if Dr. Oppenheimor would be permitted hereafter to be an ad- .VI.SIT to the government and to have access lo secret scientific (iala. This is a tragic occurrence. Undoubtedly Dr. Oppenhoimer is not (be type of man who would stoop to espionage or to betrayal of his own country. But, on tho other hand, government officials have had a good deal of worry about the way scientists feel generally on the matter of policies toward Soviet Russia. Thus, s o m e of the s u m e scientists who helped to build tho atomic bomb because they wanted it thrown against Japan and so consummate the defeat of Ihe Axis powers, later opposed the making of H-bombs, lor use against Soviet Russia or • the Communist empire. i A careful reading of (ho facts in the case of Dr. Opponheimer! vull show that he offered advice on military strategy and public policy and became almost fanatical in the presentation of his views and in lining up others to his side. The government here, with the facts about Dr. Oppen- hoimcr'i, past altitudes before it, has therefore the problem ol ascertaining whether all the so- called "derogatory information", when examined in the light of Wie policies he advocated, makes hereafter unsuitable & a Ans%vers A reader can gtt tht iniwpr to »»v question of fuel by writing Th« Telegraph information Bur.

Girls Are Sad In Springtime Without Man By HAL nnvr.K NEW YORK JP—ll is ,-wd to think of spring when lovely girls are Md. Particularly in April, when a man still has last winter's arthritis on his mind. Somehow there seem to be more sad girls than usual this spring. ! though their dresses are bright as always, and as they paw at their purses while holding up Ihe homeward bus. they make a fair statue against the twilight sun. What makes so many lovely girls sad? They are yearning for n man. Yes, a gentle male husband who will meet them at the door, his arms aching with tenderness— and a 2fl-lb sack of potatoes he has lugged home from Ihe supermarket. That is what every lovely girl in her bright spring dress really wants—just coming home to the worn figure of a husband who has looted the world for her. in a grocery store. At least that is all she needs to make her happy, even if she doesn't know it. Cut. MS a rrnnky middle-nged old veteran of the supermarkets myself, I will tell you why so ninny girls in bright dresses are sad this spring. And every spring. They are not willing to settle for a proud, poor, honest and occasionally horse-playing husband who is lamely willing (o make himself a grocery boy for her. That isn't enough for them. They want to start married life at the top—and go on right up from there in a world of ever-towering bliss. The lovely sad girls in their bright spring dresses. What they really need to make them happy is perhaps somewhere around them (just a lonesome man. broken by April), but what they hold out for is beyond them. They speak of mink coats. . . And a guy with steady money instead of a guy with a steady job. And often make a brief and wakeful surrender to a fellow with a mouth full of promises instead of a man with a moulh full of heart. 25 and 5O Years Ago Prayer for Our Father, we pause (o remember the fellowsnij. of our Lord with the disciples in the upper room. We thank thee for His wisdom in making us partakers of thai fellowship through the Communion, the emblems of which speak to u». also, of his saving grace; in Jesus' name. Amen. —O. L.

Allen Reports Dulles Tells Posit ion Dulles Selling Plan To Stop R e el s i 11 Asia member of science advisory boards here The trend of tjje information available today is that the conclusion already reached would be unfavorable on security risk rather than loyalty grounds. 'Copyright. 1954. Vwfc JiwftW-TrUHW,, . By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON /P - Whether Secretary of Stale Dulles has a long-range, clearly thought-out plan for stopping Communist expansion in Southeast Asia, or whether he's making it up as he goes along, remains lo be seen. Three years ago, under the Truman administration, this country formed a Pacific military alliance with Australia and 'New Zealand, called Anzus. The United States, in addition, has separate defense arrangements in the Pacific with the Philippines, Japan, South Korea and the Nationalist Chinese government on Formosa. This question bad been raised: Would it be a good idea to expand Anzus, by taking more nations inlo that particular alliance, and to form a kind of Pacific counterpart of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization? Dulles met here last September with the foreign ministers of Australia and New Zealand. They said "that to atlempl lo enlarge membership, would not contribute directly and materially" to PacifIt- defense. Between then and now the Communist-led Vietminh stepped up the war in Indochina and began giving Ihe French a battering, raising Ihis question: Could the French hold out or win without direct p a r t i e i p a I i o n by Ihis country? Dulles had spoken repeatedly about tho danger of letling the Communists get a hold in Southeast Asia. Suddenly he began talking about the need for "united action." This week he flew to Paris and London. Dulles and French Foreign Minister Bidault Wednesday issued a statement which said: "In close association with other interested nations, we will examine the possibility of establishing within the framework of the United Nations Charter a collective defense to assure peace, security and freedom of this area (the Pacific and Southeast Asia)." The British agreed to a similar statement. (The collective defense they mentioned would be a 10-muion affair: the United States, Britain, France, Laos, Cambodia and Viet Nam in ! Indochina, the Philippines, Australia. New Zealand and Thailand.) But the Big throe didn't say they would actually set up an expanded Anzus, or Pacific NATO. They simply talked aboul examining the possibility.

Eight votes we« WASHINGTON, The U.S. will not permit Red China to vote at the Geneva conference. Secretary of State Dulles has given unequivocal assurance of that to Senate Republican lead crs. He also served notice on it on the British and French during his flying trip to Europe. The American position, as explained by Dulles, is as follows: The Geneva meeting is not considered a five-power parley. It is a conference in the same sense and for the same purpose as the Panmunjom negotiations; that is, an effort by three free nations lo work out a peace apt-cement with two aggressor countries. As in Korea, the delegates will sit .separately; the allies on one side of the table, Ihe Reds on the other. Peiping's altcndnco at Geneva in no way constitutes recognition of that regime. Among other rossons for this view is the contention that China will be present as a "guest" of Russia: a Kremlin satellite in every respect politically, eonomically and militarily. The U.S. is prepared to go to drastic lengths to enforce its stand against allowing Red China to ballot at Geneva. No agreement has been reached with the Communists on procedure at the parley. The French want discussions lo proceed simultaneously on settlements for Korea and Indochina; thai is, one to be deliberated in t he morning, the other in the afternoon. , The U.S. does not favor Ihis plan, on the ground it would enable the Reds to "play off Korea against Indochina, or the other way around as il suits iheir purpose". The U.S. holds that each problem should be settled separately, starting with the long- stalled Korean peace agreement. That's what Dulles told Sena I'e Republican Leader Knowland, Cnlif., and Senator H. Alexander Smith (R., N. J.), chairman of the Foreign Relations Subcommittee on the Far East. They have also been informed lhal Peiping has secretly "propositioned' 1 the French on a "solution" of the eight-year-old Indochina war. Under this alleged proposal, France would recognize Red China and grant free port and rail facilities in northern Indochina in exchange for a cease- fire. China has long sought these outlets. The Nationalist government obtained them in a treaty with France after World War II, but with the fall of Chiang Kai- shek, this pact was abrogated. The Reds want to renew it in order to open a corridor for their remote Southwest interior. Dulles has advised Premier Laniel the U.S. is against this Red scheme. NOTE: U. S. military authorities expect the Reds lo make their big final effort to capture Dienbienphu this weekend. That would give them a potent trading argument at Geneva, especially with the French. Jteversliif; the Clock Germany will get back the 5180,000,000 in war-seized assets still in U.S. hands. That is nearly half the total confiscations of German property. The restoration has beenapproved by President Eisenhower, on the recommendation of the State and Justice Departments. The two departments are preparing the necesary legislation, which Congress will be asked to enact this year. They are working closely with Sen. Everett Dirksen (R., 111.) long an advocate of returning German property. The $210,000,000 worth of seized property already disposed of by the U.S. went to Americans as payment for losses and injuries suffered in World War n. These reparations are under jurisdiction of the War Claims Commission. A key problem in returning the remaining assets is how to bar future German demands for paymenl of all seized property. The likelihood of this occurring is strongly implied in a restoration proposal that has been made by Chancellor Adenauer. The Justice Department is against it, as well as other parts of the German plan. This was disclosed by Ally. Gen. Herbert Brownell al a private meeting with members of the Senate Appropriations Committee. Dirksen opened the session by Alton Evening TelegrapH Published by Alton Telegraph Printing Company P. B.
