Atomic Ships On the Way By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK 1* — The atomic ship is » couple of steps today past the "just talk" stage. Several designs for an atomic powered merchant ship have been sent to the White House tor President Eisenhower to choose the one he likes* best. And a nuclear powered passenger liner has been designed by engineers of Bethlehem Steel's shipbuilding division. At least two steamship companies are definitely interested in the "ship of tomorrow". Considering Plans The United States Lines is considering building an atom powered pasenger ship. It would use the atomic ship as a -sister vessel to the giant liner, the United States, and as a replacement for its aging liner, the America. Tht American President Lines has offered to participate with the maritime administration in struction and operation of the atomic merchant snip mat president Eisenhower wants. Seagoing transportation isn't the only thing to get a boost. The AEC has approved a one-yea: dustrial study of the possible use of atomic-powered engines in railroad locomotives. But plans for ocean vessels powered by nuclear reactors are the farthest along. Sets PacR The shipping industry has been fired with interest by the success of the Navv's atom-powered sub marine, the Nautilus. This first vessel is admittedly too expensiv to be a competitor of the conver But engineers believe the ex pense can be cut now that the Navy has pioneered the way. They add that atom-powered freighters and liners would have operational >mies and advantages — more space for cargo and passengers, for one thing. Banker Finds Youth Good Loan Risks STURGEON, Mo. (J) — Johnny Sydow started out In the sheep business at the age of 8 with $53 i his pocket and good intentions. Now, at 12, he has five ewes and a purebred sow as capital live stock, is earning profits from their offspring, and doesn't owe anyone The man who gave Johnny— and :ores of other youngsters in this rea— a starting boost with a loan is C. L. Harper, president of the Sturgeon State Bank in this east-central Missouri farming community of 570 persons. Harper says he has loaned aDoui $6,000 in the past 10 years to youngsters from 6 to 16. Risky you say? "I"ve never turned down a youngster's application for a loan, never foreclosed on one, and never lost a cent on any loan," Harper declared proudly. A mortgage on a boy's initial purchase of cattle, hogs or sheep is standard procedure. Interest is 6 per cent ana everyuung is strictly business. Loans average be tween $100 and 5200. One boy, Harper recalls, sold a steer, repaid his loan, then deposited a $50 profit in the bank. He came back two months later and stood around bashfully until his father said, "He won't tell you, but he wants to see his S50— he's afraid it isn't keeping all right." Harper solemnly produced the $50, the boy counted it, and handed it back, satisfied. New Floor Care Ends Waxing One of the most difficult jobs of housekeeping is to keep linoleum and asphalt tile floors waxed and gleaming. Now, thanks to Glaxo, it is no longer necessary to wax and scrub. All you do is apply Glaxo about twice a year. It maintains a high lustre, non slip coating that seals out airt. triaxo ones in one hour and is water clear. It's cheaper than wax in the long run, besides savins: a terrific amount of work, plus truly a beautiful floor. Glaxo is available at Eichler Bros., Inc.

GIVE TO CONQUER CANCER J AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY ite Daily Herald declared that the forthcoming Big Four peace talks going sour in advance and be saved onlv bv electing a Socialist government. The Keraid said the Russians already are preparing world opinion for a failure of the parley because they think the West called for it just to help Sir Anthony Eden and his Conservatives win the election. In line with that argument, Mos cow radio said last night that Washington is confident a Conservative victory in Britain will give the United States "a trustworthy partner in conducting an aggressive policy in Europe." "This prompts one to give se-ous thought to the motives of the Conservative leaders in speak ing at election time to their desire ;otiations. tne broadcast said. "Will not all this' talk of nego tiation merely be followed by the scuttling of negotiations and attempts ot blame the U.S.S.R. for this?" Voter Apathy Despite the lith-hour oubtursts. apathy hung over the campaign like a London pea soup fog. But the Conservatives, overwhelming favorites in the betting, had uneasy visions of Tory complacency sparking a Labor upset like Harry S. Truman's 1948 -victory over Thomas E. Dewey. Sir Winston Churchill, the party's grand old man, warned a campaign crowd : "So far I have taken part in 15 general elections but I have never seen one .more calm and quiet than this one. Do not be lulled into a false sense of security. Apathy, placency. idleness, the chatter of indifference may often be faults. On Thursday, they will be crimes." Public opinion polls indicated the Conservatives might be returned to power with a landslide majority than 100 seats. They con trolled the last House of Commons with a margin of only 19 seats.
