The other was a row between two committee chairmen over the question of holding joint or separate hearings on the program.

Highway Dirccotr pic-n Fuller- Is Adopted Senate Supports Truman Proposal By 53-37 Vote Washington-OT-President Truman's controversial plan to reorganize the Internal Revenue Bureau--a plan he said will help wipe out corruption in government--becomes law · at midnight tonight. The Senate gave the president his biggest triumph thus far in the 1952 Congress by approving the plan 53 to 37 late yesterday after two days of debate. Senators, by endorsing .the program, gave up one of their cherished and time-honored prerogatives--Ihe right to participate in naming internal revenue collectors in the states. Senator George (D-Ga), who fought the plan bitterly, declared: "Its now squarely up to the president, the secretary of the treasury and the'commissioner of internal revenue'to clean .up the revenue bureau, not only in Washington but across the country." He said the president and his supporters made corruption ' the issue in the fight over the reorganization proposal and got what they said they needed to eliminate it. ' Dr. Robert L. Johnson, national chairman of the Citizens' Commil- lee for'the Hoover Report, hailed the move as "a victory for better government." He said, "Congress has met a great responsibility squarely." Speed Is Promised Secretary of the Treasury Sny- cler said the change would be made as speedily as possible, but slow enough so as not to effect efficiency. Internal Revenue Commissioner John B. Dunlap said the reorganization cnn be put into effect within a year. The .first step-and one that must be taken at once--is to name acting heads of the collectors' offices since the posts of the present «4 collectors-are abolished The present collectors may take the Civil Service exams for .the Auto Crashes Fatal Auto Demolished In Early Morning Wreck Judge Cherry Says Voters Can Provide Honest Government J ,, uiI in the bureau if they Qualify. But nunlap has said most of them will be out. He said the bureau needs experienced and skilled tax .men in the 'posts. Seventeen of the collectors no* in office, have Civil Service status, and these may be found qualified to stay on. In the Senate vote, the plan'was backed by 30 Democrats and 23 Republicans. Nineteen Republicans and 18 Democrats voted to kill it. Of the 18 Democrats opposing it, 14 were Southerners.

Kephaloyannis did nol appear In court. The bride, Tassoula Pel- racogenrgi,_ was rcpresenled by her falher, a Parliament member. Kepnaloynnnis abducted sultry- eyed Tassoula in August, 1950 and fled with her to a mounlaln hide, out. He was later scnl lo prison for bearing arms al Ihc time ho captured her. She stuck by him, and they were reunited. The romance cooled earlier this year. Tassoula said she had never really loved him. Kcphaloyannis said he was relieved she was gone.

But, Judge Cherry said, th. people on the wrong side work harder and longer than those 01 the righl, and arc aided indirccl l y . b y voters who fail to live up to their responsibilities.' The Jonesboro jurist, Who ha; said he probably will bo a cand-i- dale for governor in Ihis sum mcr's.primaries, did not.mention the Arkansas political -. situation directly. But he cautioned tha corrUpaion can .conquer unless the 'p«6ile**h*m(ielve«i-.'are-willing.' t fight for honesty aria clean government. " · " · · Judge Cherry was introduced by Karl Williams of .

Btoth are benevolent organlzalidns devolcd to child care. Discussing the responsibilities of the cilizen 'in a free nallon, Judge Cherry emphasized that the adults of toi,iy are responsible for insli.lling Ihc 'correcl ideas and ideals in Ihc nation's youlh. Youlh must, he said, be taughl Ihe duties of cilizenship and the importance of the vole. He poinlcd oul lhat 40,000,000 Americans failed to vote in 1044, and 48,000,000 failed to reach the polls in the. 1948 presidential election. In Arkansas, he said. 100,000 persons failed to exercise Ihc riphl lo' vole.- The place lo guard ngainst stupidity and dishonesty in government is nl the polls, Judge Cherry snid. Governments in Ihcmselvcs nre not d-ishoncsl. he said, only Ihc men who arc elected can bring about dishonesty in government--national, state or local.
