NOtTHWMT AKANSAS TIMB. tayrtMvllto, Arfcoimi. Friday, March II, IfffB Stevenson Insists He Is Not A CancKdate For Presidenl V.'' Cites Reasons He Resists Plea To Make Race Wonts To Complete " Job As Governor Of Illinois . Springfield, Ill.-OT-Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois explained the reasons today why he docs not want to be the Democratic candidate for president, and indicated that he will resist any efforts to draft him. ^ There is considerable evidence that Stevenson is President Truman's personal choice to succeed him. . Stevenson declined to discuss bis last conversation with the president. From reliable Illinois sources, however, it was learned that , he is under ..Vvery heavy pressure" to reverse his decision not to run for the presidency. -"I don't know what more I can do" to make my position clear," Stevenson said. "I have repeatedly said I am running for reelection lor governor of this state, rind ·that's all. I am not after the Item- ocratic nomination for president." Cites Reason He gave these reason's for his position with respect to the presidency: ' " · 1. Hen--"1 talked, wheedled and blackjacked a number of men into coming into this slate government. For most of them, ,it meant a financial sacrifice as well as leaving their businesses. 1 don't feel, now, that 1 can walk out on my obligations to them after they have agreed to help me." 2. Personal interests--"I considered getting out of elective office some months ago. The de- 'cisiori to run for reelection in Illinois was a hard one. Having made it, I am not going through all that struggle again with regard to a totally different job." 3. Program--"My work here is not finished. That was, and is, the overriding consideration with me." He listed reorganization of state government, consolidation of the ·itate pattern of higher education, highways, and streamlining as among the major objectives yet to be' achieved. . *. Effect on the Illinois primary --"If I were to withdraw from this election now, there would be .596 MORRIS QUESTIONNAIRES SENT Navy Has Guided Missiles Ready For Use WashinRton-yPj-The .Navy is ready to operate for the first time three kinds of guided missiles-that already are coming off production assembly lines. · · - · .-· ' ;'-' Disclosure that the missiles will be in service .with'the fleet in-a matter of months was made in testimony on the .52-billion-dollar defense budget made public today by the House Appropriations Committee. The published testimony of Navy Secretary Kimballi Adm. William M. Fechteler," chief of naval operations, and other officers contains many "off-the-record" blank spaces. But these statements and disclosures emerged from the printed text: · : Kimball said that by next year the Navy will have seven different airplanes "superior" to the Russian MIG-15 jet fighter. All but two of these planes flying now, principally in the testing stage, and some are in production. Assume War To End HOLDING IHI QUESTIONNAIRE which he Is sending to federal employes, corruption hunter Newbold Morris tells reporters In Washington he will go on, In ipite of being denied subpoena powers by Congrws, because. 'The American people expect'me to do my-part." For a atarter, the questionnaires are' being sent to S98 federal;attorney* and manuals. I Attorney General J. Howard McGratH Is one. . (International/ complete ohaos here. I am not prepared to do that to the people supporting me." Appears Sincere Stevenson gives every impression of complete sincerity., however, by his Jwn definition, "nn internationalist" strongly in favor of the present American foreign policy, especially in Europe. His friends believe if that program were to be threatened by developments in this year's presidential 'election, he might change his present position. Stevenson's family has been in public life for six generations. Hu is the fourth Democratic governor elected in Illinois in nearly a century. His plurality was 57^000. Political observers assertVhal the size of the plurality indicates he drew thousands of Republican votes, and more important now, heavy support'from independent voters. In this presidential year, both major parties are bending every effort to attract the independent vote. For that reason, among others, Stevenson looks especially attractive to many Democratic professionals. But most of them here in the state believe him when he said he won't b e ' t h e party candidate. Before the Civil War in the United Stales, there were more sheep than people in the country. Today there are five people for every sheep. The Navy ("as were the other services) was ordered to prepare Us $13,200,000,000 buried on the assumption that the K o r e a n fighting would be over by June 30, and that within six months thereafter the naval and Marine forces there will have been de- pltiyed elsewhere, except for units needed for occupation duly, KimbaM'Cxplained lhal Ihis was "strategic conclusion but arbitrary calculating not only rule." The Navy has not requested and does not want operating bases in Spain. Fechteler said the Navy was self-sustaining in the Mediterranean area, but could use some a m m u n i t i o n and fuel storage dumps in Spanish harbors, but no operating bases. The Navy will be ready fnr war, if it should start, in the next 12 months in men and surface ships, The Navy is ready now to conduct iniitnl war operations and to provide a base lor rapid expansion The Navy's air arm will not be [ully modernized until after De- ;omber, 1954, but by that date most of Us flihlen w i l l be all- let powered. Namw Three MlariliM Vice Arim. John H. Cassady, deputy chief of naval operations (or air, named the pew guided missiles that will go into operational use this year as "Terrier 1," "Sparrow 1," and "ReRUlUf." The first two are for defense against attack planes. The last named was listed as the first "offensive 1 guided missile. It will be used by ships against other ships against shorn tfirgc-ts. Another admiral told a congressional group that the "sparrow" could knock out an enemy plane three or four miles away. Cassady said the three missiles arc "icing produced by assembly line methods" but that production is being held to the bare minimum needed lo attain the technique that would be required for all-out production in the event of full mobilization. ployei and more than J50 wa raised.

Pound A Day Weight Is Gained From New Soup By ALTON L. BLAKESLEE New York-(/P)-You can gain a jound of weight a day on a new soup, which looks like black cof-, fee. It is for building/up human strength before or alter, opcra- .ions. It v.'as the only food for 4fil days for one woman while plastic surgery built her 'a new jaw and mouth, removed in n cancer operation. It kept another person alive for a year during a'coma. When laced with a little alcohol, single quart of the soup supplies 1,000 calories, and proteins, minerals, sugar and salt. Many patients take three quarts a day, and eat other things besides. You wouldn't want to drink it, for it would taste vile. It's fed, drops at a time, through a small tube going through the nose to the stomach. The tube isn't irritating and lets people eat and drink other things. The tube can be left in for days or weeks. Known as prolac, the formula was developed by Dr. John Elliott, of Jackson Memorial Hospital in Florida, and the Dade "County, Fla., Blood Bank, Inc. It's made by breaking down proteins in, defatted milk, and adding minerals and other things. It is sterile, with no germs. . Soup is being tested also at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons here, and looks very useful, said Dr. John V. .Scudder of Columbia With it doctors often can avoid blood transfusions to build up strength, or vein feeding of sugars or salts, iic said One man here, his weight down to 75 pounds and lacking appetite, soon gained 20 pounds, and weathered a cancer'operation.
