To an ex- j tent which has to be seeh to be believed, the government of the j United States, which has been in a j coma throughout the campaign- months, has now been seized with total paralysis. No one in the government has any real authority to make any de- cisions whatsoever. Meanwhile, de- cisions of immense importance, which have been filed and forgotten pending the outcome of the elec- tion, urgently need to be made. Thus there is very heavy pressure on the president-elect to assume responsibility before he assumes office. It is to Eisenhower's great credit that he has responded to this situa- tion as he has. Instead of simply letting the Truman Administration flounder along somehow (as Frank- lin D. Roosevelt let the Hoover Ad- ministration flounder) he has quick- ly agreed to a sort of tandem ar- rangement for restoring the gov- ernment's authority. Eisenhower representatives in the State and Defense Departments will fly dual- control, as it were, with the Tru- man-appointed officials, during the interim period before Eisenhower takes office. Plan Will Help j Neither Eisenhower himself nor j the representatives to the State and Defense Departments whom he names, of course, can take full responsibility for decisions, until Eisenhower is in fact President of the United States. Yet this tandem arrangement will at least restore some sense of direction to the gov- ernment.

Twenty PHILIP MURRAY Labor Growing Restive Under Wage Controls By ROWLAND EVANS JR WASHINGTON W) There were indications today that organized labor is growing restive under con- tinued wage controls and might soon be willing to join those who think the wage-price program is outdated. No decisions have been made yet by top officials of the CIO and the president-elect, very soon after A'FL> But tte CIO is expected minutes later a physician pro- nounced him dead. A priest administered the last rites of the Catholic church. Funeral services will be held Thursday in Brookline, a suburb of Pittsburgh. Murray's body was put aboard a commercial airliner late yesterday. It was to be trans- ferred in Chicago to a Pennsyl- vania Railroad train, scheduled to reach Pittsburgh tomorrow. Although. Murray had not been in good health, his death came as a shock to friends, associates, and even his antagonists in some of the bitterest council table bat- tles between management and labor. Telegrams of condolence poured in from all sections of the coun- try from President Truman and high-ranking government of- ficials from William Green of the AFL and John L. Lewis of the United Mine Workers from Ben Fairless of U. S. Steel and Ben Moreell of Jones and Laugh- lin. A thin, white-thatched man who never lost the faint Scots burr in his voice, Murray likewise never lost the ardor of trade unionism from his heart. Miner at 10 By RICHARD K. O'MALLEY FRANKFURT M and Fascist forces scored sharp gains and Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's middle-road Christian Democrat party lost ground yesterday in local elections in three West Ger- man states. In Lower Saxony, British zone birthplace of the outlawed Nazi- like Socialist Reich party two former Nazi officials were named to public office. Adenauer's chief opposition, the Socialists (Social Democrats) held their own and gained slightly in some areas. Next Summer's Elections The voting was for local and district offices mayors and city and district councilmen in the British-occupied states of North Rhine Westphalia, Rhineland Pal- atinate and Uower Saxony. Though issues were largely local, observers watched the results for indications of what lies in store for Adenauer's government in next summer's national elections.

The radical rightwingers had burst out the day before the elec- tions with thousands of swastika- stamped leaflets asking the voters to boycott the polls and "patiently" await the return of Nazism. But the vote was heavy, with election officials estimating ballots were cast by 75 per cent of the 15 million eligible voters. The two former Nazis who won office were Wilhelm Schepmann, former chief of Hitler's brawling "SA" Brown Shirts, and Albert Gnade, once Nazi mayor of Got- tingen.

Eisenhower is also quoted as re- marking that he did not want a "Wall Street man" in the Treasury, and that he would like to see a businessman in the Defense De- partment, which may offer some indication of his intentions. But trying to guess the presi- dent-elect's intentions at this point is a pretty fruitless business. What is really important is that Eisen- hower, after his tremendous per- sonal triumph at the polls, is poten- tially very much in the driver's seat where foreign and defense policy are concerned. Ho has a great opportunity to form a de- cisive, coherent policy, free of the sterile wrangling with Congress which has characterized the recent past. But Eisenhower is politically an inexperienced driver, and he is now being asked to start driving even before his seat is warm. Taft Seeks Post Moreover, as Sen. Robert A. Taft's reported decision to seek a place on the Foreign Relations Committee suggests, Eisenhower's position on the driver's seat may not go unchallenged for very long. In fact, who is really to do the driving in the next four years may well be determined in the first few weeks after January 20. In this situation, the relatively inexperienced Eisenhower will des- perately need, as his spokesmen in the major posts, men of great experience and real political in- fluence of their own. These men must be ready, willing, and able to insist on a real Eisenhower pol- Had the motion been adopted, requests for the exemption of other workers from wage control would likely have followed. n I'll Continue Fight Against Reds, McCarthy Declares PHOENIX, Ariz.

Wiley said in a statement the assembly is stalled because of un- certainty over Eisenhower's views on many key questions. He- said the American delegation, appoint- ed by President Truman, is re- garded as a lame duck group. Wiley, who is in line to become chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee in new Senate, de- clared the greatest issue before the assembly is the Korean resolution, co-sponsored by the United States and 20 other nations. Ke said the resolution emphasizes support for the stand which our negotiators have taken on the Korean truce."
