Republican party, may be at stake forthcoming elections in New Jersey and California. For already Republicans in Congress are beginning to tell each other sadly (or jubilantly, in the case of the anti-Eisenhower Republican underground) that "Ike's popular- ity is a non-transferrable asset." If this notion becomes fixed dog- ma a great deal of trouble is cer- tainly in store for the Republican administration from the already restive Republican party in Con- gress. If the Congressional Repub- licans conclude that it does them no good to be for Eisenhower they are also likely to conclude it does them no harm to be against Eisen- hower. And as has been clear even while Eisenhower's prestige has been unchallengeable, being against a President a deeply ingrained Republican habit. Eyes on California The idea that Eisenhower's pop- ularity is "non-transferrable" was born, of course, in Wisconsin, the defeated Republican can- didate ran on a "support Eisen- hower" platform. With the Con- necticut municipal elections, the idea has taken somewhat deeper root. The Republican slogan in Connecticut was "support Eisen- hower and in many towns the Republicans took a bad shellacking.

The FBI refused to comment on Record Duck Stamps Sold WASHINGTON Wl Secretary of the Interior McKay said today a record federal duck hunting stamps were sold during the year ended June 30. The pre- vious record was for the year ended June 30, 1952. The stamps are sold at post offices for S2 each. Every person over 16 years of age who hunts migratory waterfowl is required to have one, with his signature writ- ten across the face. Proceeds from the stamps help pay for the government's water- fowl refuge and law enforcement programs. California, for the fifth straight year, led in sales with stamps. Other states in which more than stamps were sold were: Minnesota Tex- as Michigan Wis- consin and Illinois Whole World Watching U.S., Says Mrs. FDR FARGO, N. D.

New Delay in Persuading Korean POWs By JOHN RANDOLPH PANMUNJOM HI Indian Command today gained another 48 hours for its attempt to talk anti- Communist Korean war prisoners into listening to Red efforts to per- suade them to return home. The Neutral Nations Repatria- tion Commission is scheduled to make an announcement Monday that a reliable source said would postpone indefinitely the stalled explanations.

S. Envoy Arthur Dean said today he is hope- jful it will take no more than "10 I days to two weeks" of discussions I with the Communists to complete I arrangements for a Korean politi- j cal conference. "If we can't get a decision in 10 days or two weeks we probably can't get any agreement at he added. Dean, who opens the prelimi- nary talks Monday, emphasized that he has no intention of letting the Reds maneuver the sessions into a' "de facto political confer- ence." The U. S. State Department of- ficial, who will speak for the U. N. Command during the talks, told a news conference he has no idea who will represent the Commu- nists. He repeated that as far as he is concerned the talks will be limited to fixing a time and place for the full dress talks. But Dean said he would listen to anything new the Reds may have to say.' Dean met newsmen shortly af- ter conferring here with South Ko- rea's President Syngman Rhee. He i said they agreed that South Korea will have an observer at the pre- liminary talks. Informed quarters had reported earlier that the observer would be Col, Lee Soo Yung, a ROK staff officer during the prolonged ar- j mistice negotiations. Dean flew to Korea from Japan Saturday for a round of top level conferences before going to the Al- lied truce headquarters'at Munsan. Ellis 0. Briggs, U. S. ambassa- dor to Korea, flew here with Dean and the two conferred with George Allen, U. S. ambassador to India, who also is in Korea. Accompany- ing Dean is Lt, Gen. William K. Harrison, who negotiated final de- tails of the Korean truce. Communist and Allied officers at Panmunjom finally agreed Satur- day that the preliminary talks will be held on the armistice demarca- tion line. The Communists had in- sisted that the meetings be held in the village of Panmunjom, which is north of the demarcation line. Agreement on the conference site still must be approved by the Allied and Communist high com- mands.

Po- By JOHN M. HIGHTCWER WASHINGTON Administration officials are considering further cuts in foreign economic aid on the theory that, because of Europe's improving economic health, they would not weaken its defense effort. This administration reasoning is expected to be reflected in budget proposals to Congress next year for appropriations for the fiscal year beginning July 1. Economic improvements in Eu- rope are measured, for example, by the expected achievement of a nine billion dollar total of gold and dollar reserves behind European currencies. Such gains are attrib- uted not only to the prolonged U.S. assistance programs but to re- newed confidence by the Euro- peans in themselves and to the cumulative effects of recovery! from World War II destruction.

But reporters who made what they were told was the first and probably last inspection of the in- terior of the Nautilus yesterday found that statement conservative. Conservative also was the com- ment of Capt. Robert L. Moore, Navy supervisor at the plant, that "This vessel is being built faster, comparably, than any before her." A singular sense of urgency seemed to touch the whole effort to get ready for launching next Jan. 21, the first of what may be- come a whole fleet of atomic pow- ered submersibles. Adm. Robert B. Carney, chief of naval opera- tions, said earlier this week he was recommending building more atomic powered submarines, in ad- dition to the two now under con- struction here and a third which has been authorized but not yet contracted. When the Nautilus is launched her propulsion machinery the atomic "reactor" and the steam turbine will be in place. By au- were under way, persons either quit or withdrew their job applications. In all, the FBI made investigations. Another persons quit their jobs after their cases went to a loyalty review board.

The present directive pro- vides for getting rid of persons classed as drunks, homosexuals, loose talkers and others considered bad security risks as well as out- right subversives. Hagerty said none of the security separations in the period covered by the report, May 27 through Sept. 30, was based on refusal to testify before congressional com- mittees. Credit Hampering Building, Report JACKSONVILLE, Fla. UP) Emanuel M. Spiegel of New York, president of the National Assn. of President Confers With 16-Member Agriculture Committee By OVID A. MARTIN and JACK BELL WASHINGTON (Si President Eisenhower expressed confidence today that his administration will be able to lay before Congress a farm program that will help farm- ers "secure their fair share" of the national income and also work for the good of all. He made this prediction in a statement issued by the White House after he had spent an hour and 10 minutes going over the farm problem with his national agricul- tural advisory commission. "The preliminary discussion I have had today with the commis- sion convinces me that it will out- line, with the help of many other agricultural groups, developments in the present program that will help farmers secure their fair share of the national income and work for the good of all." The-commission, which is made up of farmers, farm industry lead- ers and agricultural educators, has been meeting here with Secretary of Agriculture Benson this week on farm legislation. Report to President White House press secretary James Hagerty said the commis- sion made a preliminary report to the President, He added that the final report, with legislative recom- mendations, will be made in De- cember. Eisenhower said he was "heart- ened" to find the view prevailing that market price adjustments in agriculture which he said have been substantial over the past two years now seem "pretty well behind us." "I sensed, too, a conviction among the members of the com- mission that the outlook for busi- ness activity throughout the econ- omy in the years ahead a factor so essential to good markets for farm products is generally reas- suring." Participating in the White House discussions today were 16 members of the commission, Secretary of Agriculture Benson, Under Secre- tary of Agriculture True Morse and Dr. Donald Paarlberg, Ben- son's economic adviser. Earlier today S-en. Mansfield (D-Mont) had challenged President Eisenhower's assertion that he never promised during the 1952 presidential campaign to support 100 per cent parity price supports for major crops. "At Kasson, Minn., last year, the President promised at least 90 per cent parity and as soon as possible full Mansfield de- clared. "If he now denies the im- port of that promise, he knows as little about the farm problem now as he did then." Sen. George (D-Ga) said in a separate interview he believes farmers generally are "greatly disturbed" by price declines and "feel now that the Republicans have been in power too long." The Advisory Committee, named in July, had been meeting behind closed doors in Washington for two days before being called to the White House to report on its prog- ress. The idea behind the confer- ence is to put together a new farm home building are as strong as ever but that mortgage credit is a hampering factor.

WV-Kids here are getting a jump on Hal- loween. All next week youngsters of the Culver-Palms YMCA will play an adaptation of trick or treat, ring- ing doorbells and asking for dona- tions to the blocal blood bank. They call themselves the Gamma Globulin Goblins, gress next January. Won't Wreck Program Benson said after luncheon with the President yesterday: "We are not planning to wreck the present program. We are going to have some recommendations for improvements in the present program." He added, however, that "We are not going to pull out anything entirely new." Benson declined to discuss any details, on the ground that it was too early. The Farmers Union, in rejecting Benson's plea to call off the cattle- men coming to see him, issued an accompanying statement accusing the secretary of hemming and hawing, quibbling and procrasti- nating. Benson's telegram said he could not see how a conference with "such a large number of people" could accomplish anything. He suggested regional gatherings at which top Agriculture Department spokesmen could appear. Failing that, he said, "I would be glad to meet with a small work- able group in Washington who cap. represent the views of the 250 in the proposed
