The President also dealt with these other topics: Vaccine supply— Eisenhower said his information is that the supply of Salk vaccine on hand or in sight, is enough to take care of the program of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. That program is to provide vaccine free of charge to first and second graders. Eisenhower said that if the first and second shots for those chil dren cannot be completed by tne time school lets out. arrangements probably will be made for inoculations during their summer vaca- Big Four— The President said >me item oi gooa migiu resuu ii he could sit down and talk at the proposed top level Big Four conference with Marshal Georgi Zhukov, Russia's defense minister. Eisenhower and Zhukov developed a personal friendly relauonsmp when they headed occupation forces in Berlin at the end of World War II. ply to a question, the Pres ident said he did not know whether Zhukov would be a member of the Russian delegation. Eisenhower indicated he certainly would not suggest that Zhukov be included because of the protocol in the situation. Premier Bulgamn would represent Russia at a top level Big Four meeting. The President disclosed at a recent news conference that he and Zhukov had been in private correspondence. Eisenhower said at the time it held some slim hope of leading to better relations between the United States and the Soviet Union. Eisenhower 3aid today there has been no further exchange of cor respondence between mm a Zhukov. And, in reply to a qu tion, he said he had no plans the moment for writing Zhukov again. Air Power — Eisenhower said it just isn't true that the United States has lost in a twinkling all the great technical excellence and development of its air power. That remark was in reply to a request for comment on a speech by Sen, Symington (D-Mo) Tuesday raising the question ot wnetner tne united States has lost control of the air to Russia. Eisenhower, in his reply, also said there is no truth in any statement that this country may have lost in a twinkling superiority as to the number of aircraft it has. He called the Symington statement a very generalized one, and went on to say any nation concentrate its air power in one particular field despite general superiority on the part of some other country. Cites Germans The Germans did just that dur ing World War H, although the Allies had overall air superiority, the President said. Apparently, the President meant e Russians have concentrated largely on fighter planes but do not have as balanced an air force as does the United States. true, Eisenhower said, that vho witnessed a May Day practice ceremony m Moscow saw > planes wnicn. on tne Dasis oi and general construction, ap parently were capable of carrying heavy loads long distances. As to tecnmcai details about those planes, nobody in this country has information, the President The United States, Eisenhower lid, may not have as many inter continental B52 jet bombers as it ■ants, but it's not true to say this country's great technical excellence has vanished in a twinkling. TV A — Eisenhower said emphat ically that the government so- far s concerned will never wreck the Tennessee Valley Au thority Power development. The President called TV A a going concern and added that it serves a useful purpose. He said he does not think that manv people could quarrel with the purposes of TV A. His remarks were in to a question about reports that the Hoover Commission on study of the government has drafted mendation that TVA be stripped of its hydroelectric plants. Red China— Eisenhower said there has been no new development with respect to the possibility of the United States" and Red China's getting together for talk, on a ceasefire in the Formosi area. Eisenhower recalled tha Secretary of State Dulles said re centlv he was willing to nego'uai with the Reds on that issue alone. The matter still rests there, the President added. Postal Pay— In response to a question the President said he still is giving very careful study to a bill, passed by Congress to increase the pay of about a half million postal workers an average of 8 6 per cent. Some Republican leaders have predicted Eisenhower will veto the bill, but he shed no light today on what his decision ■ouid be.

Illinois House Approves Bonus for Korean Veterans Votes to Abolish Park Fee Bv ROGER LANE SPRINGFIELD. 111. (J*— A 150 million dollar Korean War veterans bonus plan* moved over to the Senate today after over-whelming approval by the Illinois House. The program p a s s e a me inou^<= U to 4. If lt clears the Senate and gets Gov. Stratton's signature, final acceptance or rejection will p to voters at tne 19o6 general election. Bonuses would be based on $10 month for domestic and S15 a month for overseas service be- n June 26, 1950, and July 26. 1953. The top award thus would be S555. A minimum of $50 is pro vided. Payments would be financed from" a bond issue retirable from diversion of existing taxes on harness racing and liquor manufac turers and distributors. The plan, sponsored in the House by 82 members headed by Rep. Clvde Choate (D-Annal. is closely patterned after the World War II bonus program of 1946 which required a 3S5 million dollar bond No Exception Choate said veterans of previous wars had been rewarded by the state and no exception should be made of the Korean conflict. Two of the negative votes came from Reps. Paul Simon of Troy and George Dunne of Chicago, both 'Democrats who said they would qualify for bonuses under the plan. They said they favored helping former servicemen with special problems but not a "gratuity" to the common run. The other opposition votes came from Reps. Ber-nice Van Der Vnes of Winnetka and Noble W. Lee of Chicago, Republicans. Advanced to tne senate aiong with the bonus measure was a repealer of the state park admission law enacted in 1953 with adminis tration backing. It is expected to run into trouole. Passes 80-56 Abandonment of the 10 cents ad- ussion charge for each adult and automobile entering seven state parks received SO favorable votes, three more tnan required tor passage. There were 56 negative Rep. Alan Dixon (D-Beileville) told the House admissions were levied at only 7 of 65 state parks, memorials and conservation areas, | and that if it wasn't good for the j other 58, it wasn't good for any. dp. said the fee was dicourag- ing park attendance, producing lit- le revenue and that oie puDiic ;hould not have to pay for "enjoy ment of free grass and sunshine." Permit Expansion Rep. John W. Lewis of Marshal, Republican majority leader, opposed the bill, saying income pro duced eventually would permit the expansion of the park system and that 10 cents was no cause to grumble." Lewis said the proposal was ewed by the Izaak Walton League 5 a "backward step." Parks where visitors must pay .elude White Pines, Illinois State Beach, Pere Marquette, Starved Rock, Matthiessen, Mississippi Pal isades, and Grand Marais. The House refused to pass two other bills called up for a decisive on Tuesday, but both were kept alive when sponsors called for postponement of tne consideration before the roll calls were announced. One of the measures would have limited the work week of downstate firemen to 56 hours, and the second proposed a $3,000 a year minimum wage for teachers. The firemen's bill attracted 11 short of the 77 votes needed for approval. Contrary to Trend Rep. Carl Soderstrom (R-Streat-ort, its principal backer, said most firemen now put in more than 70 hours a week and some 84, and that this was contrary to the trend of the times. Rep. Robert L. Burhans iR-Pe- said any minimum should be geared to a sliding scale ba?ed on 1 teachers professional training Liter the fashion of the present ninimum scales ranging from SLICK) to $2,600 a year. Otherwise, Clabaugh said, a provisional teach er with minimum training would receive the same guarantee as one with a master's degree, and incentive for improving qualifications would be discarded.
