Of the 36 ambassadors he has named since the 1956 elections, seven contributed cash to the Republican campaign and one gave mpney to the Democrats. This writer can find no record of where the othef 28 made a contribution to either' "that year. The presidential anger was the last Unk in a chain of events that came to a climax after he had given an ambassadorial appointment to Maxwell H. Gluck, a rich women's-wear chain-store owner and breeder of race horses. Gluck contributed $26,500 to the Give Your Home A Well-Groomed look!

Was Surprised Sometime this year, it seems, he got the idea he'd like to work for the government. He says now, "I wanted to do some good." He was surprised, herald Wednesday, that Eisenhower appointed him ambassador to Ceylon. But the events ,began four months ago when the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which had never heard of Gluck at that time, wanted to strengthen Secretary of State Dulles' hand in resisting the appointment of unqualified men for key posts in the Foreign Service. The committee wrote a letter to Dulles. It said: "It is generally known that presidents and secretaries of state of both political parties have been under pressure from those who feel that an ambassadorship is a reward for past services or help." The committee chairman, Sen. Green (D-RI), said. "We should have first-rate ambassadors in every post." Nothing more was heard of this as the months passed. In June Eisenhower named Gluck to the ambassador's job in Ceylon. In July Gluck had to appear before Green's committee, which passes on appointments like Cluck's. But the trouble with Gluck) as it turned "out, was that he failed to do his homework. Couldn't Pronounce Names He said he"'may have given as much as $30,000 to the Republican campaign, but he couldn't pronounce the names of the prime ministers of India and Ceylon. This got so—much publicity~lhat Eisenhower was asked at his news conference Wednesday: "Were you aware when you nominated Mr. Gluck to be ambassador to Ceylon of either the extent of his contribution to the Republican party or his now recorded ignorance of affairs in that part of the world?" That's when Eisenhower blew up, denied political contributions had any connection with appointments, and said a "number of people I respect" had highly recommended Gluck. The new ambassadors—besides Gluck — who contributed to the Republicans in 1956 were American businessmen without previous experience in the diplomatic service. They and their posts are: John Hay Whitney, millionaire financier (London); A m o r y Houghton, former board chairman of the Corning glass works tFrance); James D. Zellerbact}, paper manufacturer (Italy); John Clifford Folger, head of a brokerage firm (Belgium); EarlE. T. Smith, Florida real estate dealer i Mexico); and Joseph S. Farland, (former consultant to the State Dominican Republic). The eighth ambassador who made a political contribution in 1956—but to the Democrats—was David K. E. Bruce, who was sent lo West Germany. He had previous experience. He was ambas- saor to France under President Truman. Early in Eisenhower's administration, Bruce was, ambassador to the European Coal and Steel Community and served as a member of the President's board of consultants on foreign intelligence activities. Eighteen of the 36 new ambassadors were from the ranks of career officers — State Department employes who are making diplomacy their life's work. The other 18, including"those already named, were from business; from State Department jobs to which they had previously been appointed but not as career men; or from other government jobs. P. S. The Senate JFpjeJgn Relations "Committee approved Gluck and so did the full Senate. He's now ambassador to Ceylon.

CARROLL, IOWA Oil Industry Ups Profits for Business By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK W—American business profits are running ahead of last year by 4.5 per cent — thanks in large, part to a profitable six jnonths in the-oii-indus- try. So far 588 corporations—covering all fields except, financial and accounting for roughly one half of j total corporate profits in the nation—have reported net, income after taxes for the first six months of 1957. Of these 308 show an increase over the first half of 1956, while j 280 fall behind the year ago fig-j ures. This year 21 operated at a net loss, compared with 19 the previous year. Major Role The major role of the oils in pulling total 1957 profits ahead of last year is shown in the industrials. This group of 503 corporations, shows 266 gaining and 237 declining from year ago figures. Combined the 503 have net income of $4,741,464,757, which \s 5 per cent above a year ago. But the 28 oil companies in the list have the largest combined I earnings of any group — $1,400,-' 615,206, up 17.2 per cent over thej previous year. Subtract the oil! group from the industrial list andj the combined profits of the remaining 475 are only 0.7 per cent ahead of 1956's first half.

But oilmen say the biggest boost came from supplying the Western European market while the Suez Canal was blocked. _And some add, that the secbnd'nalf of the year may show no such gain over 1956. As returns trickle in from the host of corporations yet to report, oil's weight in the total of profits may be reduced,' The 24 utilities reporting show the usual steady , gain in profits, up 5.9 per cent this time. The 50 rails, with 36 rt-porting declines, reveal a combined profit decline of 10.3 per cent: . Best Gainers Among the industrial groups the best gains over a year ago Mrs. D. L.
