PAGilO—THE BAYTOWN SUN, MONDAY, JANUARY 18, 1954 One Year- PROBLEMS IKE INHERITED STILL AWAITING SOLUTION By LYLE C. WILSON WASHINGTON, Jan. IS —im— Dwight David Eisenhower next "Wednesday completes his first year as President with most of the urgent foreign and domestic problems he inherited still awaiting solution. Mr. Eisenhower deliberately made a slow start. He and the party to which he was almost a stranger took office Jan. 20. 1953. without much training for their jobs. The presidency was Mr. Eisenhower's first political office, preceded by brief civilian experience as president of Columbia Univer- .'.sity. ..Most, of his Cabinet carne from' business, giving rise to left wing complaints that this was a • big business administration without interest in the common man. F e w Republican congressional leaders had, prior- to this year. served when a fellow Republican was in the White House. ' The greatest element of Republican political strength when Mr. Eisenhower took office was the personal .popularity of the earnest and sometimes stumbling campaigner •whom a quickly warming public had come to hail as "Ike." Some 33 million citizens had voted for him. He had carried 39 states, _smashed .deeply into the democratic South. The new president had run far ahead of his partv which barely gained control of congress by less than working majorities in either house. : That was the situation when the new President took his oath Jan. 20 on the east steps of the. capital. TOD achievement since that day was the Korean armistice. There is no peace — not yet. But the casualty lists have stopped although, perhaps the thankful pray-, ers of wives and mothers continue. Korea is only a part of the _f9 r ~ eign problem which the administration still seeks to solve. .French and Italian political instability have shaken confidence in .Burppen de- 'fense plans. French reluctance. to join with Germany in the European defense community may, indeed, compel the United States to take fatafu] and agonizing decisions this year, upon which world welfare would depend: But a beginning was made in Korea. ; , .: •• . West Germany is standing, firm with Eisenhower administration objectives. East German. events and the Berlin' riots 'added up to an encouraging "aye." . .. ' ' Overall, there, is the new bare Jiinuckled Eisenhower foreign policy stated this month-by Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles. Bus- sia and Red China are-on, notice that we shall wage no more piecemeal wars. If they start something, anywhere, they may : - expect A- bornbs and H-bombs in their own backyards. This policy, may be the most significant development of Mr. Eisenhower's first year in office. "'."•";.' .

The new plan, more likely, would bring an all-out show- down if communism forced the issue in Asia or Europe. More familiar with foreign than domestic policy, bv reason of his military service, ihc President has moved a bit more rapidly in the foreign field. He took a strong hand with the military at home. The Pentagon walls nad foundations continue to sway and quake as the old land-sea-air concept.toward Ail- Power and nuclear weapons. .Study commissions in many fields spent the first Eisenhower year with problems which are being now translated into programs for, this year's consideration by — farm, labor, social se- taxation and others, to But'in its first year, the Eisen- ers.

That still is to come and none can say when. The cheapening of the dollar in terms of goods has been checked— another way of saying the inflationary period probably has ended. The cost of living is stabilizing, perhaps stabilized. With this hardening of the soft Democratic dollars have come lower farm prices which were beginning to slip before Mr. Eisenhower took office, and slowly rising, unemployment.

John Marshall Sutler and the Oil Workers International Union were at sharp odds Saturday over the intent of the Maryland Repub- nist labor leaders. Butler introduced the measure last year and hopes to make • it a part of the Taft-Hartley law which .is up for revision. He would deny rights and privileges of the 1957 labor-management act to any labor organization whose officers were judged to be pro-Communist by-the subversive activities control board. ; The OW1U bitterly assailed the bill, asserting it would strip a union of its bargaining rights "at any time anyone charges that union with being tos, the slightest degree influenced by any indivd- ual -who has.. to the slightest degree, supported any .so-called Communist group." : , The union said labor organization wouldn't have to be convicted, but merely -"charged," to forfeit its rights" and that, in toto. the bill adds up to a licensing of unions which therefore would not be "free unions." .

Butler said in a statement made available -to the United Press, "it would appear that the intent of .my legislation has been completely misinterpreted.

''One writer <OWIU> only clouds the issue by state 'if such a charge is made, the Butler bill provides that immediately the union shall become ineligible to bargain for any of its members.' " Butler said this was not true; that all charges must be thoroughly investigated "and have a substantive basis in fact and evidence." • • "My bill," the senator said, "places on any alleged Communist-dominated union the burden of coming forward and proving' that it 'is eligible to continue".to be the recipient of the special benefits and privileges accorded it under the act, rather .than play into the hands of the.

Old Tavern Is Saved BOSTON, Jan. 18 UP)—A 278-year- old landmark hns been saved from demolition. Old Richards Tavern, in Boston's West Roxbury district, was bought recently by Jorge Epstein of Boston. It was assumed the ancient structure would be razed to provide a site for a modern bsild- ing. But Epstein didn't want to see the tavern destroyed. So he gave it'to Old Sturbridge Village, which is a re-creation ot a 17th century New England community. The tavern will be dismantled, moved in 10 trucks to Old Sturbridge Village, in central Massachusetts, and re-erected- Built in 1675, the tavern once was a regular stop for stagecoaches traveling: between Boston anc! New York. New utility plants to be built in- the United States by 1956 will consume -16 million : tons: of coal annually. Baking was regarded as a fine art in ancient Rome when bakers enjoyed high prestige and special privileges. „____ Trtisncorlhv 701 N.
