AFK1L (AKK.) UQUH1KK MEWS PAW TAUUtitt Ike to Ask Help of Newspapers In Ending 'Atomic Hysteria Age By MARVIN L. AH ROW SMITH AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — President Eisenhower flies to New York today to call in a major address tonight for help from the nation's newspapers in transforming "an age of atomic hysteria" into an era of world peace. En route, the President will stop over briefly in Washington to talk informally at the annual convention of the Daughters of the American Revolution and to install a new chairman of the government study commission on federal-state problems. The trip interrupts an Easter holiday the President started April 13 at the Augusta National Golf Club. He will return to Washington from New York tonight, spend tomorrow in Kentucky and then fly back here for another weekend of golf. He and Mrs. Eisenhower will return to Washington sometime Sunday. She is not accompanying him on the present trip. The President's half-hour speech tonight before the Bureau of Advertising of the American Newspaper Publishers Assn. at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York will be broadcast nationwide by the major television and radio networks. It is scheduled for 9 p.m., EST. James C. Hagerty, White House press secretary, has said the President would appeal to American newspapers to help "transform an age of atomic hysteria and horror into an age of international understanding and cooperative peace." To Cite Misconceptions He said Eisenhower would say that "misconceptions of the aims and aspirations of America, as well as those of the other free nations, reported and circulated here and abroad, often cause needless misunderstanding and friction between the governments- and the free peoples of the world." The President reportedly is deeply concerned, for one thing, about the adverse reaction in some of ttie free nations to the development and testing of the hydrogen bomb by the United States. He is understood to feel that an unwarranted, fear'hysteria has resulted. In Washington, the President will stop by the White House to watch Meyer Kestnbaum of Chicago take the oath of office as the new chairman of the study commission on intergovernmental relations. Kestnbaum, president of the Hart, Schaffner &Marx clothing firm and chairman of the Committee for Economic Development, was named by Eisenhower late yesterday to succeed the ousted Dr. Clarence Manion, former dean of Notre Dame University's law school. In moving out last Feb. 24 Manion said his resignation had been requested by the White House. He had been speaking out freely in support of the controversial Bricker amendment to restrict presidential treaty-making powers, which Eisenhower opposed. Asked at a recent news conference about Manion's dismissal, the President said Manion just j didn't have enough time to devote ' to the study commission. He added that Manion was entirely within his rights in expressing views regarding the Bricker amendment. 45 Friends Dine at Ghost Party As Guests of Dead Bachelor DETROIT (ff\ — Forty-five convivial folk wined and dined last night as guests of a dead man who wanted them to "have the last one on me." The will of Carl Cl a r k e a wealthy bachelor who died last Nov. 17 at the age of 79, called for a party to be thrown to divide up 261 personal "trinkets" left over from his half-million-dollar estate. The rest of his fortune, made as president of the Monroe (Mich.) Steel Castings Co., went to nine charities. The objects, like the party, were bizaare. They ranged from a tattered pair of snowshoes and an old-fashioned vacuum cleaner to original oil paintings and an etching of Abraham Lincoln. Among the guests was Gordon MacEdward, a 66-year old printer who had known Clarke for 35 years. "He was not an eccentric man," said MacEdward. "He was a quiet man who shunned publicity. He would wilt the grass over his grave if he knew that the press was here eating the same filet mignon his friends are having. "Carl was a man who appreciated things in life that we guests can't c om p r e h e n d. He never looked at women. He fought all his life for the rights of the American Indian and Negroes. "Most of the people at this party are members of the 'Wednesday Nighters Club' which Carl started back in 1914." French Envoy Praises B36 DAYTON, Ohio MP)—Frances air minister, Louis Christiaens, praised the "versatile" B26 last night and called it one of the most important weapons iri the Indochinese conflict. He arrived at Wright-Patterson AFB while on a tour of U. S Air Force bases. He said more American plane are needed by French forces in Indochina. A good airborne suppl is absolutely essential for victory there, he said. 'Hot' Temper Costly WTLLIAMSPORT, Pa.
