This condition followed Dem- ocratic Governor Frank J. Lausche's unprecedented state- ment that he hadn't decided whom to support for U. S. sen- ator his party's nominee, Joseph T. Ferguson, or Repub- lican Robert A. Tait. He likes Ferguson as a state auditor, he said, but admires Taft "for his seriousness and fCTthrightness" as a U. S. sen- ator. This political heresy caused moans of anguish among the party faithful and friends of Ferguson, state auditor for 14 years. It stirred indignation among labor leaders depending upon Ferguson to defeat the co-au- thor of the Taft-Harley act. It delighted the Republicans, who appreciate any help in their efforts to" re-elect Taft November 7, and It confused many plain voters who wondered if Lausche was sincere or was just pulling a political stunt. Whatever Lausche's motives, many voters found it difficult to quarrel with this portion of his statement: "I will vote, when I deter- mine the issues, for the cand- idate I believe will serve the nation best. I will not allow my party interest to overcome my interest in my country." Social Security Bill Goes to Conference Asiatic Economic And Political Problems Reviewed By Russell Brines Tokyo Foster flew into Japan today to discuss peace terms and general astatic economic and political problem! with General MacArthur. As he arrived, U. S. Defense Sec- retary Louis Johnson, concerned more-with the other alternative to and defense toured the once mighty Japanese naval base at Yokosuka. Dulles, Republican special advis- er to the State department, said upon his arrival from Korea: "I am here because the United States government has some posi- 'tive ideas it wants to carry out." He added, after being greeted at the airport by General Mac- Arthur, Mrs. MacArthur and Wil- liam J. Sebald, acting XT. S. polit- ical adviser for Japan, that he will "consider all phases" of the peace issue. Visits Tokyo Dulles said he, Secretary John- son, General Omar Bradley, chair- man of the joint chiefs of staff, and General MacArthur all "are working in a co-operative spirit and we will look for results."

Official Informants emphas- ized today that present U. S. policy is flatly against any mil- itary assistance to Chiang In his island stronghold. The fact that policies are being review- ed, however, at least opens the possibility of a reversal of this position. Several factors apparently will enter into the final deci- sion. Perhaps the most import- ant of these will be Mac- Arthur's views as expressed to Johnson and the extent to which Johnson presses for their acceptance by the Pres- ident. If MacArthur strongly favors strengthening Formosan defenses and if this is reflect- ed formally in seme new de- cision of the joint chiefs of staff, the pressure on the ad- ministration to change its at- titude will be very great. the Senate measure.

Senators Lodge he is a Soviet (R.-Mass.) and Green members of the inquiry committee, said they are asking the Senate appropria- tions committee to carry out their recommendations regarding tight- ening of the State department's security set-up abroad. After an inspection trip to Eur- ope, Lodge and Green called on the department to fire all aliens employed in embassies, legations and consulates and to replace them with Americans. Their re- port to the Senate last week also recommended that the department buy office quarters abroad instead of leasing the space. Both Lodge and Green said they have no estimate of the cost of carrying out their program. Fog Blankets New York City New York Fog shrouded New York city today, snarling air- line operations and tampering traffic in the busy harbor. The thick curtain forced cancel- lation of 26 flights operating into and out of LaGuardia Field. Other flights were diverted to Newark, N, J., Boston and Philadelphia. Arrival of the liner Queen Mary was set back several': hours. The big ship, carrying passen- gers, was scheduled to dock at 8 a.m. The fog caused the docking time to be changed to p.m. (Continued on Page 13.

S. vice consul in Frankfurt, commit- ted suicide yesterday. Henderson, an official announce- ment said, was found dead of a self-inflicted gun shot wound in his apartment. Henderson who was born in Fo- cahontas, Ark., has a mother and brother living in Ventura, Calif. Henderson's body was discover- ed last night after a member ot the consulate staff in Frankfurt had been sent to investigate his absence from his office. Henderson's body, the commis- sion stated, was found lying be- side a gun. "Mr. Henderson had shot him- self through the right temple and apparently had died about 3 p.m. yesterday the an- nouncement said. "Two other hand guns and two sporting rifles were By Jack Quigg; girl, what now? That was the question on Hollywood's lips today as it recovered from shocking news that Judy Garland, a child star who lost none of her luster with maturity, slashed her throat in a fit of despair over her career. Miss Garland's studio, MGM, suspended her Saturday and removed her from the cast of her latest picture after she failed to show up for a rehearsal with Fred Astaire. Mon- day night, during a conference about her problems with her hus- band and advisers, she ran into a bathroom and slashed her throat with a broken glass. Her doctor said the wound is superficial. Some say this means the star, who has had marital and health troubles recently, too, is washed up at 29. .Others contend MGM would nev- er cut adrift an actress whose re- cent films have grossed about each. Hollywood Sympathetic One thing is certain: The 'lit- tle girl with the big voice" has al- most everybody's sympathy. It's no secret that her health has suffered in recent years. Since May 1949 .she has been receiving treatment for a nervous condition. In addition, she has had to diet to combat a tendency toward plump- :ss! Judy has frequently said she wants to continue her career. Her studio considers her one of its big- gest attractions. Yet it has replac- ed her in three films in two years because she "caused us embar- rassment, delay, inconvenience and loss of morale among co-work- ers." One spokesman said she added as much as 20 per cent to the cost of a film. Just what, exactly, is the trouble _ has been the subject of specula- does. tion and rumor. This much is fact: The first indication that she and MGM were having trouble was her removal from the cast of "Bark- leys of Broadway" in 1948 because she was "physically unable to play the role." In March 1949 Judy announced she and her second husband, Vin- cente Minelli, director of'some of her best films, were separating. They are now reconciled. Winds Up Broke In May, after a month of cost- ly shooting on "Annie Get Your she was dropped for "not reporting to work." MGM sent her to Boston for a "long rest" and fi- nanced medical treatments. Two months later Judy was back, 15 found in the apartment." Henderson left three notes, the high commission said. One was ad- dressed to his mother, Mrs. Vir- ginia R. Henderson, one to a wom- an acquaintance and one was an open letter. "Nothing in these indicated any reason for his act except mention of his' deafness which necessitated his wearing a hearing aid. Asso- ciates said he was extremely sen- sitive about this affliction but that nothing in his actions recently in- dicated contemplation of such an the announcement added. Henderson had been stationed In Frankfurt since December 1948. He previously had been on the State department's staff in Lon- don, Stockholm and Brussels.

A separate peace treaty with Japan, excluding Russia and Red China, is being urged by many Japanese and some Allied sources. There was no indication what connection, if any, Johnson's tour of Yokosuka had to do with his mission here. Its commander, Rear Admiral Benton Decker, wants the United States to keep it after a peace treaty is signed. Its drydocks will accommodate battleships, big car- riers and all ships of the line. Admiral Arthur W, Radford, Pa- cific fleet commander, said on a recent visit to Japan that the U. S. Navy does not need a Japanese base after the peace treaty is sign- d.

While the question of a Japanese peace treaty will be the major top ic, Dulles indicated he would cover a broad range of Asiatic eco- nomic and political problems. This phase of the talks is ex- pected to augment the basically niiitary conversations which the occupation chief held with Johnson and Bradley. MacArthur is expected to tell Dulles the Japanese have earned some form of a peace settlement and that the present government would be willing to grant the U.S. military bases considered neces- sary by American strategists. The Republican foreign policy expert will hold a series of confer- ences with foreign diplomats and Japanese government officials af- ter meeting with news correspond- ents and the American Chamber of Commerce tomorrow.
