PACE FOURTEEN BLVTHKV1LLE (AKK.) COURIER NKWS . 16, 1958 Liquor Retailers •i •K Policy Ar« Setting to Us* 'Good Organisations' Offical Charges WASHINGTON (AP) — As- tittant Secretary of Defense John A. Hannah said today liquor retailers are fighting the new Army and Air Force policy on the sale of liquor at officers' clubs and "have actively enlisted many good organizations." The liquor retailers, he said, "are using these people who have different motives .entirely." He mentioned the Women's Christian Temperance Union CWCTU) as one of the "good organizations" he said liquor distributors are seeking to Use. Two weeks ago, the Army altered restrictions of over 50 years standing and authorized the sale of liquor by the drink or by the bottle at clubs and messes for officers and non - commissoned of- fcers. The old restrictions did not ban consumption of liquor at such clubs but did forbid its sale. As a practical matter, this meant officers had to buy the liquor elsewhere for locker storage at the club. On Par Wllh Navy The Air Force immediately adopted the same policy as the Army. Both services said it simply put them on a par with what had long been a practice at Navy clubs at shore stations. The Navy prohibits liquor aboard ships. . Hannah, who is in charge of manpower and morale problems for the Defense Department, discussed the new policy at a news conference. The Implication of his remarks was that liquor retailers were concerned over possible loss of sales. Hannah called the new policy a "sensible rule," and said he had discussed it fully with the chairmen of the Senate and House Armed Services committees before allow- In? it to take effect. "They didn't disapprove," he said, referring to Sen. Saltonstall (R-Mass) and Rep. Short (R-Mo), chairmen of the committees. "And I haven't any intention of backing up," Hannah added.

L. Weems Trussell said yesterdny. Trussell, who declined to name the agencies, said the Joint Auditing Committee — of which he is chairman — would consider the audits tomorrow. One survey indicated that a state employe had purchased an nuto- mobile from the agency employing him, Trussell said. This practice was declared Illegal earlier this week. The second audit involved Improper bookkeeping practices on another agency. Both audits have been sent to committee members by Legislative Auditor Orvel M. Johnson. The practice of sending audits to the committee members for review was adopted after a previous survey disclosing irregularities in a state agency was published. The 1953 Fiscal Code directs that audits revealing illegal transactions or misuse of. public funds shall be reported to the governor, the attorney general and the prosecuting attorney of the county In which the violations occurred. Trussell said'he had asked an attorney general's ruling on the committee's new policy. Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, HI.

DEMOCRAT (Continued from Fife It tlonal convention's go-called loyalty oath had voted to give their previously non-paid National Chairman Stephen Mitchell 126000 a ycnr salary and lashed out at Elsenhower administration domestic and foreign policies. Mitchell had an opportunity at a news conference today 9 a.m. CST to announce personnel of a committee to study the rules of the next convention and report to it In 1956. This apparently would take the party-splitting Issue out of next year's campaign for control of Congress. After his formal speech last night Stevenson launched into a discussion of his findings in his recent world tour. It was a sort of informal resume of some of the things he may tell Elsenhower It a planned conference between the two men at the White House soon. Stevenson quipped that his cup of defeat had not bn too bittr around th world and Eisenhower had only been to Denver on a vacation. Half-seriously he observed that for most of us, a successful foreign policy would be one without Involvement in foreign affairs." "The Ideal would be isolationist, but the reality would be total involvement in world affairs," he declared. In his formal speech Stevenson said the free world is "on the eve of great decisions" In Asia anc urged that American negotiators not be tied down in advance to "arbitrary positions" where their room to maneuver and negotiate was limited. 'I hope our leaders will not be prisoners of domestic political propaganda or hobbled by Inflexibility" he declared. This wag an obvious thrust at some of the demands voiced by Sen. Knowland of California the Senate Republican floor leader that the United States Insist upon the unification of Korea as a prerequisite to any settlement of Far Eastern problems. Room Limited "Will Red China yield at the conference table what it fought to prevent on the battlefield?" Stevenson asked. "It would seem to me room for maneuver and negotiation is limited." He said that with the fate of Korea, Formosa and Indochina at stake the United States owes it to the free world to find out if possible whether Red China wants peace and trade above all" as many of our friends think." He said he was skeptical of the results but insisted the attempt ought to be made. Stevenson told his listeners he emphatically approves "what our government is doing to leave no doubt about our concern for the security and independence of Indochina" an endorsement of a recent National Security Council decision ,o put more funds Into strengthen- ng anti-Communist forces there. He said Asia wants "rice and Fulbright Sees Democratic Victory in '54 LITTLE ROCK (Si — Sen. J. W. Fulbrlght (D—Ark) predicts that the Democratic Party will receive a 25 to 30 seat majority in Congress in the 1954 elections. He also expects Adlal E, Stevenson to be nominated as his party's presidential candidate in the 1956 elections. Pulbrlght, Interviewed here yesterday during a stopover In a state speaking tour, declined to berate the Republican administration, explaining: "It's a litlle too early to pass Judgement on what they're doing." The Junior senator said he didn't attend the Democratic rally in Chicago because of the expense involved and his speaking tour. He added that "nobody doubts that I support the Democratic Party." Concerning the Southern rebellion at the 1952 Democratic Convention and the recent criticism by party leaders in the South, Pul- bright .said that is South Carolina Oov. James F. Byrnes doesn't approve of party policies "he ought X) come right out and declare himself to be a Republican." Byrnes led the 1952 revolt. "I don't know what Byrnes i,s trying to do. If he's trying to create a third party, I'm definitely against it," Fulbright said. Fulbright speaks at McGehee today, Pine Bluff tomorrow and Little Rock Friday and Saturday. Bids Are Sought For Drainage Work Bids for construction of about 5,700 feet of drainage ditch in the Madison to Marianna floodway in the St. Francis Basin Project will be opened at 11 a.m. Oct. 6, it was announced yesterday by the Memphis District of the Corps of Engineers.
