(Republican-Herald photo) America Here, But 'Flu' Puts Her In Bed at Hospital All appearances by Miss America of 1953, Miss Neva Jane Langley, at the Winona Winter Carnival festivities were canceled this morning when Miss Langley became ill at the Hotel Winona. She was removed by ambulance to the Winona General Hospital at a.m. She had been ill three days ip Macon, Ga., last, week but had not wanted to cancel her appearances here. She appeared in the inaugural parade Tuesday in Washington, D. C. Dr. R. H. Wilson, Winona phy- sician called to attend Miss Ameri- ca, said that she had a tempera- ture 'of 103 degrees. He called her illness an "acute upper respi- ratory infection." This may be the "flu." Miss Langley was scheduled to arrive at the Winona Municipal Airport at p.m. Friday and was to crown Snow Flake HI at the coronation ball later at the Armory. However, she missed her flight as it origiaated at Mil- waukee instead of Chicago be- cause of weather conditions at the latter city. Miss Langley and her mother, Mrs. A. R. Langley, Lakeland, Fla., arrived on the Milwaukee Road at a.m. today. They were 'met TODAY Moscow Job Hard To Fill By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP WASHINGTON Except for the ambassadorship to the plan to send Mrs. Clare Boothe Luce to Rome seems to have hit some one really im- portant diplomatic appointment re- mains to be made. This is the am- bassadorship to the Soviet Union. The choice President Eisenhower and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles make for this post may well be more crucial than any other ap- by Jack Frost (Carlus Walter) and Frosty Miss America was to talk with two polio patients at a.m. to- day but did not feel well enough to leave the hotel. Her radio broad- cast over Station KWNO at 11 a.m. was canceled also. Activities planned for Miss Lang- ley included the morning events, riding in the parade this afternoon and playing the piano at the stage show this evening. Sunday, on her 20th birthday, she was to be feted as she departed on the a.m. North Central Air- lines flight. The Winona Activity Group, sponsors of 'the carnival, had planned to present her with or- chids and a birthday cake in honor Mrs. Langley said at" noon today that her daughter would remain at the Winona hospital until she re- covered from the fever and then would fly home. This is the. first trip that Mrs. Langley has made with Miss America on her personal appearances. Mrs. Lailgley met her daughter in Chicago for the trip here. Senators Submit Farm Price Support Bill at 95% Parity WASHINGTON The gov- ernment would support prices for basic agricultural commodities at 95 per cent of parity in 1953 and 1954 under a bill introduced Friday by Sen. Eastland (D-Miss) and Young Eastland said in a Senate speech that support prices should be in- creased from the present 90 per cent of parity to 95 per cent "as a stop-gap device to bolster sag- ging farm income." Parity is a price calculated in terms of the cost of things farmers buy. The parity price of wheat, for instance, goes up and down with the rise and fall of such things as gasoline and shoes. Under farm laws, the govern- ment steps in and buys supported commodities, to bolster the mar- ket, when the price falls below 90 per cent of parity. Faribault Polio Victim Has Child MINNEAPOLIS (J) A Fari- ___ tault County woman, in an iron.; of the occasion. was delivered of a five-pound girl to- day by Caesarean-operation. The mother is Mrs. Oscar (Lu- cille) Hughes, Elmore. Mrs. Hughes was stricken Sept. 4 and was brought to the Elizabeth Kenny Institute the. next day through the Faribault County chap- ter of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. pointment abroad. This is for two reasons. First, there is now no doubt whatsoever that a ferocious struggle for pow- er, centering around the question of the succession to Joseph Stalin, is reaching a climax in Moscow. The outcome of the struggle (which will be examined in some detail in a later report) may well deter- mine the future of the world. It is absolutely essential that this fierce but obscure contest be cor- rectly interpreted for the Ameri- can government. Not Pleasant Plum It is widely believed that any American ambassador in Moscow is a futile figure, condemned to isolation and virtual imprisonment in gloomy Spasso House. It is true that the Moscow ambassadorship is hardly a pleasant or desirable dip- lomatic plum, which is one reason there has been so little speculation about the post. It is also true that except in special circumstances the American envoy has no contact with the Soviet rulers. Ambassador George Kennan, for example, re- cently dismissed summarily by the Kremlin, had just one formal and empty conversation with Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Vishinsky. Yet there are ways (which have nothing to do with beautiful blond spies planted in the Kremlin) for a man with very special training and abilities to to absorb through the inner reality of the Moscow scene. Ken- nan's dispatches from Moscow, according to reliable report, were the most brilliantly perceptive of any since the war. It was in part just because they were aware that Kerman understood what was.going on around him that the Soviet rul- ers seized the first opportunity to rid of him. There i-- another reason why the choice for the Moscow post is so important. There may well be only one hope 'f ending the Korean War without greatly and most danger- ously expanding the area of con- flict. This is by direct negotiation (Continued on Page 9, Column 8) ALSOPS Ike, Taylor Discuss Situation in Korea WASHINGTON UP) President Eisenhower today discussed the Ko- rean military situation with Lt.Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor who is leaving Monday to take command of the Eighth Army there. The meeting was held against a background of speculation that the tali would be related to the new chief executive's plans for trying to end the stalemated war. Taylor told reporters after .his conference that he will leave here at 6 p.m. Monday and arrive in Tokyo at a.m. Tokyo time next Thursday. He is taking over the command of Gen. James A, Van Fleet, who will retire March 31. Asked if Korea came up at his conference with President Eisen- hower, Taylor said that was a "safe assumption" but declined to elaborate. Taylor, 51, has been deputy chief of staff for operations and administration in Washington dur- ing most of the Korean War. He will be briefed by Gen. Mark Clark, Far Eastern commander in chief-, before taking over Van Fleet's post. From a discussion of the hot war in Korea Eisenhower appar- ently planned to turn today to talk of American psychological strat- egy in the cold war elsewhere. Another conference booked at the White House was with William H. Jackson, a New York invest- ment banker who lives in Prince- ton, N. J., and'C. D. Jackson of. New York, editor-on-leave of For- tune magazine. An authoritative source said earlier this month that William Jackson had been asked by Ei- senhower to head a planning com- mission to review U. S. psycholog- ical strategy in the cold war against Communism. To Aid in Study C. D. Jackson, who served as an Eisenhower speech-writing aide during the campaign, reportedly will take part in the study. William Jackson, 51, is a former deputy chief of the Central Intel- ligence Agency. He served under Gen. Walter Bedell Smith, who is retiring as director of that agency to be under secretary of state. Eisenhower plans to meet Mon- day morning with GOP congres- sional leaders to fix a time for the State of the Union message he will deliver in person at a joint Senate House session, probably later next week. The White House said the lawmakers also will discuss the cgntents of the mes- sage at the Monday meeting. The GOP delegation will include Vice President Nixon; Senators Taft of Ohio, Majority leader of the Senate; Knowland of Califor- nia, chairman of the Senate Re- publican Policy Committee; Bridges of New Hampshire, pres- ident pro'tern of the Senate; and Representatives Martin of Massa- chusetts, speaker of the House; Charles Halleck of Indiana, floor leader; and Leslie C. Arends of Illinois, assistant leader. There was speculation, mean- while, as to whether the White House would try to cloak the Ei- senhower congressional meeting with as much secrecy as it blan- keted the President's first formal conference with his Cabinet yes- terday. After the Cabinet meeting, mem- bers declined to in gen- eral terms what had been discussed. Nixon told reporters there had been a common under- standing to maintain silence. Senate Debates Wilson Case in Special Session Way Cleared For Speedy OK, Belief By JACK BELL WASHINGTON tfi Republican leaders today spurred the Senate into an unusual Saturday, session to debate the controversial nom. ination of Charles E. Wilson as secretary of defense. Senate Republican Leader Tafi of Ohio said he will not try for a vote on the appointment today, bui will press for final action Monday Whether there is a showdown then depends on how long senators wan to talk. Before them was a mass of tes timony, some of it conflicting ant later built up during Wilson's two appearances a' closed sessions of the armed serv ices committee. The committee gave its unani mous approval to the nomination yesterday after' Wilson read a statement saying he will dispose o: his 2V4 million dollars worth o: stock in General Motors, the coun. try's biggest defense contractor. Federal law bars a man from doing business, as a governmen: official, with a firm in which he holds even an indirect financial interest. To Sell Stock Wilson's decision' to sell his reversing a stand he took'at a Jan. 15 committee hear. too late to avoid some criticism of him in the Senate, Sen. Morse for one, remained in a protesting mood. And Sen. Dirksen (R-H1) told re- porters a possible objection might arise over more than Gen- eral Motors shares owned by Mrs. Wilson. Wilson offered to have his wife sell her holdings, but armed serv- ices committee members indicated this was not necessary. The Detroit industrialist wound up his testimony yesterday by say- ing he would personally "take the for decisions involving firms in proposed assistants 'have stock; Hejleaded with the committee to- approve- the choices he said he handpicked at President Eisenhow- er's M. Kyes, to be deputy secretary; Robert T. B. Army secretary; Harold Talbott, air secretary; and Rob- ert B; Anderson, Navy secretary. None of these has been formally nominated yet by Eisenhower. All but Anderson have interests in companies likely to have defense contracts. Chairman Saltonstall (R-Mass) said last night without elaboration that the armed services commit- tee may reject Stevens' nomina- tion. Saltonstall spoke in a radio interview. Wilson told the senators that, if anything came up which might create a "misunderstanding" be- cause of his former connection with General Motors, he would take the matter directly to Eisen- hower for a decision. Similarly, he said, he would take out of his assistants' hands any decisions which might involve companies in which they held in terests. He said the aides thus could keep their stock, adding that lie himself wants to hold onto some oil, pipeline and. bank shares in e said won't deal with the government. Fool for Taking Job At one point, Wilson said he thought he was a "damn fool" for taking the defense job. But he maintained stoutly that he is going to do a good given the assistants of his choice. He said he will get rid of his shares of GM stock by April 1, Felling most of it and giving not more than 20 per cent of it to his children and grand- children. He testified he won't own any "beneficial interest" in it thereafter. Elsenhower talked today with Lt. Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor in Washington. Taylor was chosen Friday to take' com- mand of the.

PAUL Iff) Drastic revision of the veterans' preference law, including elimination of "absolute preference" from all promotional ind entrance examinations, Is pro- vided in a bill to be introduced in the Legislature Monday by Rep. Harold R. Anderson of North Vlankato. Rep. Anderson said the bill follows closely the recommenda- tions of the "Little Hoover" Com- nission and in many respects it s similar to recommendations of he Veterans Preference in Emp- .oyment Commission which report- ed to the 1951 Legislature. Co-authors with Anderson are House Speaker John A. Hartle, Owatonna; Walter Day, Bagley, and Verne C. Johnson, Minneapolis. "The overwhelming majority of those who have studied the matter agree that the provision of ab- solute preference is unfair to the great majority of public employes and detrimental to the welfare.of state and local And- rson-.explained. "Further postpone- ment of change is unjustifiable." Anderson said the chances are 'good" that the measure will be approved by the current Legisla- ure. St. Paul Man Named Fairbanks Manager ST.

Division public information officer. The cases involved men who either left a battle scene without orders or refused to advance. Names of the accused and con- victed weer not disclosed. The incidents occurred last Oc tober on the Central Front. Sentences ranged from six months to 10 years' at hard labor in prison. Only one man received a full 10-year sentence. Most were given dishonorable .discharges. Some were given bad conduct discharges and two sol diers were given prison terms without discharge. The sentence and trial records will be" reviewed by the judge ad- vocate general section in Washing- ton, D. C. McMullen said the charges grew out of an action in which two com- panies were ordered to counter attack a Chinese position. After the cpmpanies reached their ob- jective, a number of men with- drew without orders. McMullen said the trial records showed some officers and men who remained in position were killed or wounded because the accused men pulled back without Another case involved a patrol action in which men slipped away to their own lines without the patrol leader's knowledge. The major said the entire regi- ment was pulled out of the line after the incident and "retrained." The regiment since has been back on the front lines and perforated well. The 65th Regiment has fought in Korea since November, .1950, and compiled a long and honor- able fighting record.

Military Academy announced today that the colorful Army-Notre Dame football series, suspended after the 1947 season, would be resumed in 1957. The two teams will play a home- and-home series, with the first game at Dame Oct. and the second at West Point Oct. 11, 1958.' The Army said the agreement had been reached between the two athletic directors, Edward (Moose) Krause of Notre Dame and Earl (Red) Blaik of Army, also Army coach.
