Morse Charges Election Of Senator Taft Would Defeat Foreign Policy Eisenhower Supports Washington -(/PI- Senator Morse (R-Orc) said triday election of Senator Taft (R-Ohio) to the presidency "would defeat the foreign 'policy tor which General Eisenhower stands." S e n a t o r Brcwitcr (R-Me) disagreed. ' With Taft as president,. Morse said, It would he "impossible to carry out our obligations in Europe under the North Atlantic Treaty." Morse ' is supporting Elsenhower for the Republican presidential nomination Brewster Is. backing Taft. Brewster said there; was no justification for the remarks by Morse. ' "Senator Taft has made it perfectly clear that as president he would carry out our commitments under the North Atlantic pact," Brewster declared' W«uld Meet Obligations Taft has said that although he voted against the pact when it was up for Senate ratification, he is all for meeting this country's obligations under the treaty -now that it has been approved. He said recently that Eisenhower had been advised of the position he has taken publicly--that he will support completion of the Europ e a n 1 army project. Morse said, however, he believes Taft "in his heart is against" the North Atlantic treaty and the program which Eisenhower heads as supreme commander of the Western Europe defense forces. ' Eisenhower has said he is avail- able for the Republican presidential nomination but won't seek it. In a January statement the. general said t h a t . under no circumstances .would he ask to be relieved from his assignment in Europe to seek - political office. President Tri'man said yesterday he did not know when Eisenhower will end his assignment. Truman made the statement in reply to a question. Morse and some other-Republicans supporting Eisenhower have been asked that he give up his European command and return to this country 4 to campaign. The have expressed concern it will be difficult, if not impossible, to win the nomination for him of he stays in Europe.

The proposed ·' increase will be voted upon again in next month'i election. Washlngton-(/P)-The American Associatiori of School Administrators says fchool boards should conduct their meetings publicly. "Person tiity clashes .in a board meeting mhke bigger news for the local community newspaper than fight o.'i the floor of the United States Senate," the .association comment., in a 24-page report made public today. The booklet, "The Superintendent, the Board and ' the Press," summarizes some of the conflicts between · newspapers and educators and suggests ways in which cooperation between the two can be obtained. "The reporter's first responsibility is to report the news whether it is good or bad," the report says. "Since a school" system is made up of many human beings, it is inevitable that there will be undesirable news developments as well as good news. "Although a superintendent can tell a reporter why he thinks a story should no', be published, he gains nothing .by attempting to suppress unfavorable news. In fact, secretive efforts can boomerang wi'h devastating results."
