Eisea- to run for and the target far mud and rattta att right with him. But when he was asked if he wmrid support Eisenhower, Mr. Truman Mid he doesn't think the wiiild prosper under any candidate. Mr. Trman stressed at his news what he has said many He has a high opin- ion of Eiseahower, and be likes him and he waaU him to stay on as the tap coatatander of united military m Europe. He's doiag a food job, Mr. Tn- And. he said. Eisenhower will atay aa the job until he himself asks to be relieved. If Eisenhower should receive the Republican presidentil nomination, Mr. Tru- man said, of course he will have to resign his pocitkm. In other highlights of his weekly meeting with newsmen, Mr. Tru- man Mid: 1. Be has given up the idea af a special commission to ferret out wrongdoings in the govern- ment Attorney General J. Howard McGrath, as the government's chief law enforcement officer, will carry out the job. He said McGrath will remain in the Cabinet. 2. He hat named a committee to see that firms with government contracts do not discriminate in hiring workers. The contracts carry a clause forbidding discrim- ination. Heading the committee on compliance is Dwight R. G. Pal- mer, chairman of the board of the General Cable Corp. Most of the news conference was given ever to exchanges revolving about Eisenhower's statement Monday that (A) be k a Republi- can. (B) would accept a "clear call" from the GOP to be its presi- dential nominee, but (C) will not engage in pre-convention activities and will not ask to be relieved of his present military assignment. In the course of a bantering series of questions, Mr. Truman repeated what he has said that Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio is the man he hopes the Republi- cans will nominate. The President refused to say whether he intends to run again, but he'made it plain he would not hesitate to run against Eisen- hower, despite his admiration for the general, if he thought that was the thing to do. And, at one point. Mr. Truman tossed out what may have been a hint that be does not think Eisen- hower would be a successful cam- paigner. Asked for his opinion about the wisdom of having a military man as President, Mr. Truman told re- porters to read up on the biography of Gen. WinQeld Scott. Would the President give any clue as to what this was about? No. said Mr. Truman, adding that the reporters would have to read that for themselves. Scott, a hero of the Mexican War. was nominated for President in 1852 by the Whigs. The diction- ary of American biography says the campaign was essentially without issues but was marked by exceptionally scurrilous attacks on Scott by newspapers and stump- speakers." The dictionary goes on to say that Scott's "straight forwardness was an easy target for the Demo- crats. He was overwhelmingly de- feated by Franklin Pierce." FLORIDA.

The crewmen and their officers left the split-open, -water-logged jinx ship at p. m. PST p. m. They apparently pre- ferred fighting mountainous seas and high winds in their frail life boats to remaining on the wallow- ing 7-SoO-ton vesseL Four terse messages in the space of 25 minutes told of the dwindling hope after 10 hours battling the 45-foot waves and the hopeless task of regaining control of the ship which was dovm at the bow and shipping tons of water through a 14-foot crack on its port side. It was 6 a. la. Wednesday when the ship's master, Capt. George P. PIgver of Portland, Ore., radioed the vessel was in trouble. At noon he sent an SOS, reporting the crack in the hold and that the ship was taking water. At p. m. the radio reported the steering, which had been out! of order, was fixed but the stern was completely out of water. j j "It looks like our only hope is for the weather to the Pennsylvania's radio said and went silent for 17 minutes.

During- this time it is hoped to X-ray virtually every adult and near-adult resident -of St. Lucie county." Some WO .X-rays, were taken, the first morning, including sev- eral hundred at'the high school. A stationary unit win be located at the Community Center through- out the survey period, while a mobile unit will visit various places in the county for the .con- venience of the public. The En- tire schedule appears below. The survey is sponsored by the St. Lucie County Tuberculosis and Health association in cooperation with the State Board of Health and County Board of Health. It is financed largely by the sale-_of Christmas seals "and persons j who have not yet sent in remit- tances for their seals could well j do so now. Those in charge suggest that the' X-ray be made as soon as convenient, so that there may be ample time to handle all comers. It is not necessary to undress for the X-ray, it was emphasized, and only a very few minutes are required to complete the job.

"You should have j handed it over to your propaganda man to give to the broadcasters and news agencies." Libby said the Reds insist on "forced repatriation" of war pris- oners for three reasons: you do not trust the vol- unteers of your army now in our prisoner of war camps "Second, you do not wish to ex- j pose the Republic of Korea na- tionals whom you have incorporat- ed into your army to freedom of choice publicly expressed.

Lawmakers gave signs they will support a speedup in efforts to in- crease American military might. But the Republicans and South- ern Democrats who can muster a majority of both houses appeared determined to hack down the amount of foreign aid and to scut- tle many of the President's do- mestic welfare proposals. They had some backers among administration supporters for their movement for economy and no more taxes. With Britain's Prune Minister Winston Churchill listening intently from a gallery seat. Mr. Truman called on. Congress Wednesday to The President proposed, among other things, (1) an increase IB the size of the U.

LONDON CJI The gallant American freighter Flying Enter- prise sank in the stormy Atlantic today after a mighty two-weeks duel with the sea. Heroic Capt. Kurt Carlsen and First Hate Ken- neth Dancy of the tow tug Turmoil were snatched from the churning waters to safety. Carlsen and Dancy leaped over- board when it became evident the 6711-ton freighter was going down under the crashing waves. The standby rescue fleet closed in. The tug Turmoil threw over a rope ladder and the two men clambered to safety. They were in the water only about four minutes. Carisen refused to give up Hotil the stricken freighter obviously was heaving her last He had bat- tled since the Christmas Day hur- ricane to save his ship. His solitary duel with the Atlantic began Dec. 28 after he ordered all hands to abandon the'ship, which carried a crew of 40 and 10 passengers. Dancy joined him last Saturday. The big freighter thrashed about in its final agony for 40 minutes and then disappeared. Aboard the British salvage tug Turmoil, Carl- sen and Dancy, bearded and ex- hausted, climbed into dry clothing as the tug turned hurriedly in the direction of Falmouth, about 40 miles away. Associated Press reporters at the scene depicted the last hour of the Enterprise. For more than 24 hours the ves- sel had been virtually on its side. At p. m. a. m. EST) it became obvious to the TJ. S. destroyer Keith, standing by. that -the Enterprise was about to go down. K and other nearby boats began the long-planned rescue op- eration at once. The motley assort- ment of boats which, had been scur- rying about the freighter for ciavs heaved close1 in hrlhe writhing vessel as the" Turmofl's lights flashed the signal The funnel of the Enterprise by this time was slapping the surface of the sea. The bow was consider- ably lower than the stern. A little American flag still fluttered over the rear part of the superstructure. The wind was blowing fiercely, pitching the rescue tugs about like chips of wood. Water poured into the funnel of the dying Enterprise. The two men leaped overboard, even as the Enterprise gave a heave to port and began slowly to keel over on her side. Part of her more than a mil- lion strewn about the surface of the churning water in profusion. Soon other parts of the Enterprise began to crack, and more cargo was pitched into the sea. By p. m.. the Enterprise was fully on her side. Grimly Carl- sen and Dancy, clad in life jackets and dripping with, water, watched the last gasp from the tug. It was a gallant death. The res- cue fleet saluted ft. In the last few minutes the tugs sounded their sirens. Only the bow of the Enter- prise was visible. At p. m. flares on the surface of the water near the ship were lighted, casting i weird light over the area as the Enterprise took her final lunge. One minute later the Enterprise was below the sea. Carlsen and Dancy were taken nto the cabin of the Turmoil by ts skipper, CapL Dan Parker. The said the two men had been n the water only four minutes, so effective had the rescue operation >een.
