The vote was 60-31, one fewer than the required two-thirds of those balloting. The proposal ihat lost was one by Sen.

McCarthy Calls Other Army Men By G. MILTON KELLY _ WASHINGTON _ A source ligh in President Eisenhower's administration said today Robert T. Stevens will continue as secre- vary of the Army, despite the crit- cism levelled at his conduct during- his quarrel with Sen. Mc- Carthy This source, who declined to be quoted by name, said some of the administration's top advisers had counselled Stevens against taking n McCarthy at a televised hear- ng. The source said they were ow satisfied that, whatever loss f prestige Stevens may have suf- ered because of an agreement videly interpreted as a surrender. IB still would have been made to 'look worse" if the hearing had aken place. Some Republicans in Congress xpressed confidence the row over tevens- demands that Army wit- esses be guaranteed against abu- ive treatment would now die own.

UP) Combined air-ground rescue crews, aided by clearing skies, pressed the search today for a Los Angeles-to-Min- neapolis air lines plane miss-ing in Wyoming or South Dakota with- nine persons aboard. The Convair 240 airliner, with a crew of three and six passengers, was reported missing late Friday at Wright Junction, about 80 miles north of Casper. Military and Civil Air Patrol planes from Wyoming, Colorado and South Dakota went aloft at to trace the airliner's route over mountainous terrain between Wright Junction and "Rapid City, S. D. Amphibious SA16 planes from the 44th Air Rescue Squadron at Lowry Air Force Base at Den- ver, Colo., kept up an all-night shuttle search along that 183-mile route. Ground search parties also were sent out at scattered points in eastern Wyoming and in South Dakota. The airliner, running behind .schedule, was due to arrive at Rapid City at a.m. (CST) Friday. At Las Vegas, Nev.. it was boarded by its three relief crew members. They were identified as Capt, M.

Guards controlled the crowds pressed in a written memorandum that covered also other demands McCarthy had made and was gen- erally interpreted as a surrender to the senator. Stevens reacted strongly against this interpretation and issued a statement intended to counteract it. The- President helped write this statement, the administration source said today. McCarthy, who had charged thatj the statement contained "com- pletely false" and "entirely un- true" language on two points, told a news conference yesterday he had nothing to add to that. In the statement, which Eisen- hower publicly endorsed, Stevens Thursday night insisted he had made the agreement only after re- ceiving assurances Army wit- nesses would not be "brow-beaten" by the subcommittee.

After her graduation she attended Gale Institute at Mm neapclis, an airline hostess school for six months, then want to work for Western Airlines as a rcserva- tionist. She has been at Los An- geles for a year and would become elegible for work as an airborne hostess on her 21st birthday.

They were be- lieved headed back to Minnesota for positions either in Minneapolis or Chicago. Miss Reierson's family expect- ed Alta to arrive in Caledonia Fri- day night, but they received word her pians had been changed and that she would take a later plane from Los Angeles Friday morning. Then came the news that the plane was missing. The captain, M. Ray Cawley, Bountiful, Utah, made his last radio report at a, m. Friday from a point about 120 miles west of Rapid City.

H Mental Hospital Pay Plan Ruled Unconstitutional ST. PAUL Ml A new system of charges for care of the patients in state mental hospitals, set up by the 1953 Legislature, is unconstitutional. This was the ruling late Friday of Atty. Gen. Burnquist. He ruled that the law, insofar as it affected persons over 65 in these institu- tions, was clearly illegal. Because that stipulation is so "inseparably connected" with the law's other provisions, the entire law is in- valid, he said. The law had provided that fin- ancially able relatives of patients up to age 65, or that patients themselves, should pay as high as per month for their hospitali- zation. In addition to that, vol- untary patients would be called upon to meet all charges for clinical attention. Gov. Anderson had asked for the ruling on the basis of what he said were innumerable complaints about the law. These complaints, he reported, were based largely on the varying charges set for patients over 65.
