Dulles Is Stricken With Cancer Again By Sf fcWAttt United WASHINGTON fUPI) -- Secretary of Stale John Foster Dulles lists been slrickefi fl£ain by cancer, raising- grave doubts that ha can continue ftS chief architect of President Eisenhower's foreign policy. -. I The grim news was announced Saturday by the Prrifident after " he personally talked to the ven- erablt Cabinet officer at his bedside. Dulles was operated on for a similar malignancy in November, 195(5, and was believed cured. Ths President said Dulles IS fully aware he has cancer again. He said "further treatment" will be required and that Dulles will continue on a leave of absence. Th<* President's statement, read t/) reporters at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, did not touch on Dulles' future tenure in office. According to a (Vhite House spokesman, the President has no plans now to appoint a new sec:. retary. He still will fly to Aca" pulco, Mexico, next week, to visit th» President of Mexico. Undersecretary of State Christian A. Herter flew back from R South Carolina vacation to take f over as acting secretary. He will j fill, at least temporarily, one of, the moat difficult posts in the world. State Department Press Officer Lincoln White said "no further I surgery" on Dulles is contemplated. He said radiation therapy) will ba used in the immediate future. Tha finding of free cancer cells • was made on the basis of microscopic examination of tissue and fluid taken from Dulles' abdominal region during- a hernia oper- > atvon Friday. Nothing was said by either the President or White about the possibility of a. resignation by Dulles, who will be 71 on Feb. 25. In the 1958 occurrence, a cancerous portion of Dulles' intestine wa.s removed by Walter Reed surgeons. The malignancy was [reported effectively checked. i Hft added he "expressed the Doctors said the radiation the> thoughts ahd«.f>ra,yers of All of us apy—employing radium, X ray or J that the results of this operation use of new tadioisotopes devel- i and the further course ot treat- oped in the atomic age — Will ment will be successful." be designed to attack the new!

White was unable to say exactly what form of radiation therapy would be used on Dulles but said it would get underway next week. He said Dulles wil] receive the benefit of Hie finest find latest techniques in such treatment, at the Army center where cancer patients are brought from through out the world. White was asked if he assumed Dulles would remain in the Cabinet. He would not go beyond the letters exchanged by Dulles and Bisenhower before the secretary's [hospitalizatlon. These made it clear Dvilles merely was taking a leave of absence. ! The finding of cancer far overshadowed still another ailment that has been plaguing Dulles. Irt j recent months he ha* been treated for diverticulitis. or inflama- tion of the lower intestine. This :had restricted him to a diet of ! extremely bland foods. He was at Walter Reed for treatment in De- icember. Nothing was said of this ailment in either Friday's or Saturday's announcements.
