Fiv* Ctrrti P«r Copy; Foe Predicts Defeat In Senate- Big Debate Opens On Bricker Amendment WASHINGTON, Jan. ,23-UP— A leading, foe of 'the controversial amendment to limit presidential treaty powers Saturday: predicted Senate-defeat for .the measure as the "great debate" got off .to a head start. Chairman Alexander Wiley (R- Wis.) of'the Senate Foreign Relations . committee said flatly "the Bricker Amendment, in its present form.' will not become law." "I know we can- beat it," he said. Wiley and Sen. John W. Bricker, % (R-Ohio), chief sponsor of the proposed amendment, opened up what* promises to be one of the stormiest constitutional debates inVrecent years m Senate speeches Friday. The amendment comes UD formally for Senate consideration Tuesday. President Eisenhower is firmly opposed to the amendment as it is now drafted. The proposal must muster a two-thirds vote in" both houses of Congress and be ratified by three-fourths, of the states.'.before it will become part of the con- i stitution. Wiley charged that adoption of the amendment would "be one of the most dangerous acts of our .generation." Bricker accused the President of using 'extra-legal'^ efforts: to persuade Congress to kill, the proposal.

Taylor said the 45th Division, formerly of the Oklahoma National Guard, will leave sometime between Feb. 15 and March 15. The 40th Division, called to active duty from the California National Guard, will follow but no departure date has been set, Taylor said. The Army commander said the 40th Division would leave Korea "considerably after" the Oklahoma division sails for home. Taylor's announcement was the first official confirmation of the recall of -the two Army units, Washington:; sources last week, named the 40tfi"-land- : 45th as the 'two'-divi-! fioris .to be withdrawn under President Eisenhower's plan to reduce the number of.

Men with more time to serve in Korea will be shifted to other units. The regimental colors and records of the 40th and 45th will be returned to the National Guard departments of their home states. The Oklahoma and California units are the only National Guard divisions to serve in Korea. Both divisions wer e called from their home states into federal service Sept. 1, 1950. The 40th trained at Camp Cooke, Calif., and the 45th in Camp Polk, La., before sailing WASHINGTON. Jan. 23 —UP— Cpl. Edward S. Dickenson. the Korean war prisoner who got a near hero's welcome after changing his mind about staying with the Communists, faced possible Army court martial Saturday for co-operating with the Reds. The 23:year-old, soldier from the mountain hamlet o£ Cracker's • NeckV:Va,..-.-was-J>laced -under custody'-at'-the- Army's Walter Reed Hospital where he had gone Thursday for treatment of minor ailments. Reporters were not permitted to see him. The Army filed court martial charges Friday night accusing the newly-wed GI of violating the military code by dealing "directly and indirectly" with the enemy and seeking "favorable treatment" to the "detriment" o£ his fellow prisoners. The Army said Dickenson would be regarded as a prisoner while an investigation is made to determine if he should stand trial for the charges. One of the two charges placed against him could be punishable by death. Dickenson, one of the original 23 Americans captured by the Reds in Korea who refused repatriation, Groom Who Balked At Video Wedding Has Head Checked NEW YORK,»Jan. 23—UP—Authorities gave a mental examination Saturday to a prospective bridegroom who refused to get married on a ' television program when he and his bride-to-be argued over where they would spend their expense-paid honeymoon. Magistrate Mathew Fagin ordered the would-be groom, Sigmund Welt, into Kings County Hospital for a psychiatric checkup when the case was reviewed in court. Welt had been scheduled to be married Thursday to Josephine Buono on the television show "Bride and Groom." Producers of the show called the Brooklyn couple into a conference Wednesday night to go over the details. The producers informed the couple they could expect a pile of gifts for their new home and an expense paid honeymoon in Princeton, N. J. "Princeton, New Jersey?" Welt gasped. "Florida, or maybe California, but New Jersey — never!" Welt said. Miss Buono pointed out that all her friends had arranged to be watching their TV sets at the wedding hour. She insisted he go through with the televised ceremony. Nothing doing. Welt said. Miss Buono stamped from the conference room. Welt went to his hotel room and brooded until 5 a. m. Friday. Then he headed for Miss Buono's home. He broke into the house and went unannounced to Miss Buono's bedroom. But Josephine's father had changed beds with her for the night. He popped out from under the covers, grabbed Welt and called police. In court, he faced a charge of malicious mischief. Ex-Clown Plans Dimes Show Clinton KocherWas With P. T. Barnum One of Baytown's newest and more unusual residents wants to do something for the March of Dimes. And therein lies a story\ Sixty-two-year-old Clinton Floyd Kocher was an early-day clown with P. T. Barnum's famous circus. He traveled with Barnum for 14 years, using the circus name of "Bobo." Kocher, now carrying on the clown act as a hobby, is using his knack with animals to earn a living. Mostly he trains dogs. Kocher has offered to do a benefit show for the March of Dimes. He will do three shows Sunday at the Riverview Inn near Four Corners on Crosby - Lynchburg Road- The shows will be at 12 noon and at 2 and 5 p. m. Sunday. The hat will be passed for the March of Dimes. "I don't make anything out of It myself," Kocher said. "I just want to do my bit to help out." Newspaper clippings that Kocher carries with him show that he first started doing benefit shows in Hutchinson, Kan., when he returnee? there after leaving the circus trail. He became a great friend of the Boy Scouts and helped them in their fund raising. A native of Kansas, Kocher says he left home and joined the circus when he was 12 years old- back in 1904. Although he now spends most of his time with dogs, Kocher claims he can train almost any animal. He is looking forward to getting a bull frog troupe on the road. "Train bull frogs?" he snorts. "Why, you can make them do almost anything. And you should see them dressed up In hats and shirts-" Right now, Kocher is training dogs for two Baytown law enforcement officers—Assistant Police Chief Roy Montgomery and Constable Paul Anderson, denounced his Red ties last October and asked to be returned to this country. He ;had a .ioyful and much publicized reunion with his familv here in November. He has spent most of hi s time since then with his family and bride o£ two months on. their five-acre corn and bean mountain farm. . , ' Cpl.
