No N'umcs He named no names. Some Democrat. 1 ; have accused Nixon of such tactics. Tile vice president listed Neubel'ger as a "left-wing" candidate at Pocatello, Idaho, last Oct. 25.. Nixon did not join in a burst of applause which greeted Neuberger's first reference to "character assassination." He did join in the handclapping at the end of Neuberger's talk, however. By that time Mrs. Maione — known to friends as "Knife" — had left the room, declaring in audible tones: "I've had all' I can take." Outside, she had a verbal ttfi with Mrs. Perle Mesta, the parly giver often called the official hostess of the Truman administration. Onlookers said Mrs. Mesta, formerly minister to Luxembourg, chided Mrs. Malone for walking out on a speech b one of her 155 1 , 157'., 2301, 226', 2 155= 158 231 !i 226 1 , New York Stocks A T and T 173.1-2 Amer Tobacco 64 1-2 Anaconda- Copper 47 1-2 Beth Steel 101 1-2 Chrysler 68 1-4 Coca-Cola 112 1-4 Gen Electric 47 3-4 Gen Motors 94 7-8 Montgomery Ward ' 163-8 • N Y Central 33 1-2 Int Harvester 351-2 Republic Steel 761-2 Radio 38 Socony Vacuum 50 SliKl-Pak HI-.

Then, said the witnesses, the women exchanged some personal references. Mrs. Malone had been seated at a table near the center of the big ballroom with her husband, a member of the GOP Senate group most friendly lo Sen. McCarthy ift-Wis). Malone remained at the table. 70 Senators Present Some 70 senators and several hundred other persons, Including a number of Eisenhower administration, officials, attended the dinner. Neuberger , the final speaker, said that If both Democrats and Republicans agree to campaign "on issues and not on character assassination" then "we will have , contributed something fo Ameri- j can life which will endure in all the years ahead." Assailing- "guilt by association", the new senator said Senate Republican Leader KnoK'lnnd of California avoided such tactics and Bell Services Are Conducted In Keiser Church Services for Mrs- Annie Bell, 78, who died yesterday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. M.

Nixon stuck to pleasantries and avoided political controversy in his own brief welcoming address. Case said m another brief talk that the test the voters will apply to both Democrats and Republicans in 1956 will be the degree of support they give lo President Elsenhower's program. "I hope and predict the Demo- 14 t ' a cralic party under Its experienced 108 5 ' 8 leadership will do well In the next 83 '' 2 :two years," Case said. "I know liJf'Jiow party will do well."

DEMOCRATS (Continued from Page 1) of Staff soon—indicating- that it might be next week—to explain in the current version of the "new look" which the Eisenhower administration started when it took over two years ago. Study Promised Committee members then will make their own recommendations. A similar study has been promised by the Senate Armed Services Committed under Sen. Russell iD-Gai. Cannon's view about air power did not appear at odds with those of Eisenhower. In his letter to Wilson, the President reiterated a doctrine he had expressed before. He said the first objective must "be to maintain the capability to i deter an enemy from attack and Officers who will have the same] to blunt the attack if it comes— station for at least one more year j by a combination of effective re- are Don MaGee, secretary; Frank Speight, chaplain; Fred Blomeyer, tiler. The installing officer was Frank Kindred. Richard Neeley was the installing marshal! and H. 1 Sprague was installing chaplain. EISENHOWER (Continued from Page I) he has "already . . . expressed assurances of unreserved cooperation" in those areas. There has been 170 such exchange of pledges on domestic issues, but Eisenhower declared that "the strength of our country" requires teamwork on a broad scale. With Democrats nnd Republicans alike casting an eye ahead to the 1950 elections, Eisenhower put it this way: "Our quest for peace and freedom necessarily presumes that we who hold positions of public trust, must rise above self and section- that we must subordinate to the general good our partisan, our personal pride nnd prejudiced, Tire- j lessly. with united purpose, we must fortify the material and spiritual foundations of this land of freedom and of free nations throughout the world. "As never before, there is need lor unhesitating cooperation among the branches of our government. "At this time the executive nnd legislative branches are under management of different political parties. This fact places both par- tics on' trial before the American peopje. "In less perilous days of the past, division of governmental responsibility among our great parties has produced a paralyzing Indecision. We must not let this happen In our time. We muAt nvolri A pnntlysls of the will for peact and Intcrna- j lion it security." I talialory power and a continental defense system of steadily increasing effectiveness." And the President made another point he had u$ed before: "Because scientific progress ex* pris a constantly increasing influ- enc," upon the character and conduct of war. and because America's most precious possession is (he lives of her citizens, we should base our security upon military formations which make the maximum use of .science and technology in older to minimize numbers in men."
