Ike In Plea For Farm Vote, GOP Congress By MARVIN ARROWMITH INDIANAPOLIS (If) — President Eisenhower bid for the natio farm vole last night, saying clec tion oT a Republican Conqi-ess will help assure American farmers "a foundation of cndurint; prosperity." Speaking to a wildly cheering, capacity crowd of l.i.ODO at Butler University, the President jabbed at the Truman administration f'lr what he termed the fanner.* "se rious loss in buying power'* in 1051-52. And in n separata spooch nt a smaller rally of OOP colleagues he sounded a i:hitllonj;c to Repub I'cans to spur "our horses and to get in going" i.i the party's drive to maintain control of Congress in the Nov. 2 elections. Eisenhower slopped over in the Indiana capital in the midst of the Farm Bell on his way back to hurricane laslu>d Washington from Denver, where ho ended an eight-week work and play vacation yesterday. His private plane landed at Washington National Airport early to day, several hours after the hum canu had .-wept north. His major a d dros:; last night broadcast nationwide by radio and telecast in 15 farm stato-i marked .another step-up in his persoT^il campaign to swin^ volois into the Republican column this fall. During the fir-st 21 months of his administration, lie said, "we have gone far toward buikl'ntf for our agriculture a foundation of en during prosperity, i:i an America at last at peace." He said there never had been more constructive farm legislation than that passed by the GOP-con- trplled 83rcl Congress, and he biamed "the old farm law" for a "steady decline in farmers' buy ing power." On the speakers platform were Secretary of Agriculture Benson, whom he warmly praised, and Re publican candidates from the Farm Belt. Thei'a had been reports from Washington that GOP leaders ccun sclcd against having Benson on the', platform, presumably .because of some Republican opposition to the administration's farm program. controversial Demos Moving Field Day of Wilson Talk WASHINGTON (UP) — Defense Secretary /Charles E. Wilson retired- from the political field of battle today with Democrats nipping at his heels for his celebrated observation on dogs and unemployment. The plain-spoken secretary said his speech at a GOP rally in Chicago Wednesday night "winds it up as far as I am concerned ... I am not in a humor to make (another) one." Wilson was in a jovial mood when he talked with reporters here yesterday on his return from a, six-day trip that stirred one of the liveliest tempests - oJt the sional campaign.

SEC Declines to Act Quickly on Request WASHINGTON (/P) — Mississipp Power & Light Co., indirectly . i party to the controversial Dixon Yales contract has filed a specia statement with the Security anc Exchange Commission, but failec to win its speedy approval. The company's statement was given the SEC yesterday as i formal reply to charges by- th firm's former treasurer^. 'D. Stie tenroth that it kept "two sets o ^. .cial , reserves. The company en tcred a flat denial. ffhe statement was offered jf. amended registration of n 4, lillion dollar stock refinancing which Mississippi Power wants the SEC to approve. The company asked SEC's akaj on the amendment before nightfall But the commissioners turned this down after a 40-minute mcet'nj SEC action on such filings usual ly takes about ?0 days. Mississippi Powor is a wholly owned subsidiary of Middle Soutl Utilities Inc., one of the two pri vate companies making up the Dixon-Yates group. The atomic Energy Commission has negotiated but not yet put into effect a disputed contract under which Dixon-Yates would build an electricity - generating plant whiel would send power over Tennessee Valley Authority public powei lines. Mississippi powor fits into the arrangement in that it would be obliged to furnish power for TVA distribution under certain circum stances and as Middle Soutl subsidiary would have to take pan of any excess energy from the proposed private powor plant 01 West Memphis Ark. Mississippi Power has also been drawn into the picture as a result of Stietenroth's lengthy testimony nt a enal'e Antiinonopoly Subcommittee probe of the Dixon-Yates jlan. In yesterday's statement tho 'irm termed Stii'tonrolh's charges 'without substance or foundation. "The company does not keen two sets of books" it said, On another charge by Stietenroth that Mississippi Power J-(acl ailod to disclose that it vvns offer ng to buy the North Centra) Mississippi Electric Power Association yesterday's filing made this pro Josal a pai't of thj official record.

For Mrs. Clements, the show world's most durable foster mother, has auditioned srnr.o 'lOO.OOO talented and not so talented children in n quarter of « century. More than 12,000 kids have a- liearod on "Aunty Altec's" famous "Children's Hour" Sindny program over WNBC and WNBT here. The program, chich recently celebrated Its silver anniversary, has been a springboard for many now famous entertainers. 'So far p.s we've boon find," said Mrs. Clements, able to "it's the oldest continuous show in radio. It has gone on for some 1,300. consecutive weeks." It is now only n pnrt-limo task for busy, warm-hearted Mrs. Clements, who was once n Broadway dancer herself. Five years .ngo, after the death of her husband, she took over tho operation of hi.s Philadelphia advertising agency. Three days a week sh3 commutes here, where she hold? auditions, and writes, directs and produces her show. Shu loves to work with children, handles them easily with a firm knowing kindlncss. "I had twins, but lost them as babies," she said, quietly. "Since then. I've well, I've learned to be fond of other peopl?''j children." Each year she contributes to the education of a number of ta'.en'.ed children whose parents can't afford to give them the training they need. "I've always been interested in show business," she said. "I was the youngest of seven children in a Pennsylvania Dutch family. My father had paid $400 for a piano. and one of the older children cared to play it. "When I came along, I had to, My thrifty father simply wasn't going to let that piano go to waste I gave my first concert debut at 8, and I wore panties 'made of flour sacks with the name of the pany, v ;pvi n | 1 Qd, ; gn ;them..,.^ :.-,,, ^ As I sat ' down to ths piaho; everybody in tho audience started laughing. In flipping back my starched dress, I had given a free ad to the flour company." Each night now when Mrs. Clements looks at television her heart i« warmed by the sight of at least 6 to 8 performers who got their atari on her program. "Not all are stars," she said, "but they are making a living." Among the better known graduates of her children's hour arc Ezra Stone, Roberts. Eileen Barton and Roberta Peters. What has she learned from 25 years of working with children' "Well, the most important thing is to treat them as adults." she said. "Children respond to reason at least as well as ; grownups-anri they're more obedient. "The parents often, are more of a problem than the children. They never seem to be satisfied if a child has one talent. They want to push the child into everything, or claim he :ean do anything." One father offered Mrs. Clem- •nts a new car if she'd put h( child on her show. A jeweler offered her an expensive watch, on the same basis. "I had to turn them both clown, 1 ' she laughed. "The children got on the show only by their own Intent*. We don't audition their parents' pockctbooks." Mrs. Clements believes that encouraging children to develop their talents helps cut down juvenile delinquency. "A child trying to become good n nnylhini! simply .loesn't linve lime lo get into trouble." she said.

But it hn-3 yet to set off any rush of forward order ing in the metnls industry, Manufacturers continue to tnke it slow and easy. Lena and zinc producers have been helped by the government's policy of buying metal for the defense stockpile, which has hiked Iho priro. But the higher -price may be one of the reasons . thai the makers of civilian goods- are ordering these met- tnls skimpily. Stool ordering has picked up enough to send output pleasantly nbove last summer's slow-motion pace. But Hie bills still aren't turning out anywhere near the amount of steel they were this time last year. Many steelmen are looking for the pace to gain a little more speed shortly. They think tho auto makers have used up most of their steel inventories and will bo ordering in quantity when tho J9S5 models start rolling off the production lines. The pickup in steol production 1-as already sent tha price of falcel scrap higher. Another factor in the stei.l scrap price rise has been an increase In export, With the relaxation of some of tha government's grip on any materials that might m time find tlioir way into enemy armament factories. Some even look for 9 boost in vious, "It's hard to hold their attention hey are always trying to make ne laugh, ' she said. "But I suppose I really love them best of ill. I iilwciys dreamed of being a comcdienne-but I wasn't." That is the key to "Aunty Alice's" success. She shares the yearning behind evory child's mobt mpossible dream, and does what •he can to help it come true.

Copper, scrap prices, on the other hand, have broken this week after their recent climb. Scrap was in -demand because a series of strikes in the minqs, and refineries in this country and .'n Chile had cut off supplies of virgi copper. Strike settlements have fire- shadowed an end to tho shortage and dampened the demand for scrap.
