Marathon County Traffic Police said Friday that two women, each declaring to be the wife of an Amherst man killed in a traffic accident Monday, have claimed his body for burial. After the death of Roy Olson, the traffic victim, Mrs. Beulah Ol- son, about 38, an operator of a tavern at Amher.st, made the first request. She said she was married to Olson for three years, officers reported. Then Mrs. Nyla Olson of Wau- sau, who said she too was mar- ried to Olson, brought a marriage certificate to the traffic police while making an inquiry into the details of the accident. Police said the certificate showed she was married to Olson in Pine Minn., last Aug. 23.

(AP Wirephoto) Dulles Explains 'New Look'in Military Plan Allies Will Be Consulted Before All-Out Blow By JACK BELL WASHINGTON of State Dulles says selectivity in terms of weapons, time and places to fight-is the key to President Eisenhower's "new look" military program. The secretary of state, testifying yesterday before the Senate For- eign Relations Committee, also put into focus his ideas about presi- dential powers to take the country into war without prior action by Congress. Dulles said, in effect: 1. The President has the right under the Constitution to act "in the interests of the United States." 2. How he shall act in an em- ergency is a matter for his judg- ment, and in deciding he may take into account the fact that there are treaties, like the North Atlantic Pact and the Inter-Amer- ican Defense Treaty, which set up special relationships between the United States and other countries. 3. Congress would be consulted if there were time. 4. In any case, Congress, the public and the President are likely to be in agreement on any defense action taken. Heart of Program 5.

"Twenty years of twenty deeds of betrayal." The senator, making a rebuttal to a March 6 speech of Steven- son's, accused the 1952 Demo- cratic presidential nominee of us- ing "the Communist method" of attacking him and the Republican party. No Comment Stevenson, in Cambridge, Mass., said through a spokesman that he lad "no comment" on McCarthy's speech, delivered at a banquet of the Milwaukee County Young Re- publican organization. Stevenson had told a Demo- cratic rally in Miami that the Republican party was "divided against itself, half McCarthy and lalf Eisenhower" and accused McCarthy of sowing "slander and disunion." McCarthy, who quickly accused Stevenson of a "vicious" personal attack on him, said io his speech ast night that "Adlai turned some "ine phrases at Miami." But, said, he senator, "Apparently Adlai tvould rather turn a clever phrase than to be truthful." The phrase drew one of the big j ovations of the night from the overflow, partisan crowd of more than 400 that packed a small ban- quet room at a downtown hotel. The senator charged that Stev- enson, in his speech at Miami, "acting as spokesman and defense jlawyer for the Democratic party, used the officially approved and published Communist method of attacking McCarthy and the Re- publican party." He said "the main report" to the national conference of the which borders on Red China.

After the three-hour question and answer session in which Dulles par- ticipated, Sen.

Capehart asked. "I'm secretary of state and you're a Dulles replied with a smile. Will Consult Allies The secretary agreed with one of his questioners that Allies would be consulted before targets for massive retaliation were picked. His explanation of the President's "discretionary power" was ap- plauded as "very heartening" last night by Lester B. Pearson, Ca.nadian minister of external af- fairs, who had said in a speech plantings will be within the acres alloted for this crop. It also assumed that the cotton acreage would be in line with the acres alloted for that crop. But the prospective corn acreage was about the same as last year, although the govern- ment had urged a 10-million-acre reduction. The department emphasized, however, that the acreages finally planted may turn out to be larger __ _____ ,__r_____i or smaller than indicated, by rea- leaders and hundreds of visitors I United States decides to retaliate (son of weather conditions, price The Agriculture Department said yesterday that a survey taken March 1 indicated the acreage planted to crops this year may be down less than one per cent from a year ago even though storage facilities are crowded with the largest farm surplus in history. Under crap control programs set up by the department., farmers had been urged to' divert upwards of 25 million about seven per cent of last year's crop acre- 18 Killed in Plane Crash in Maryland ANNAPOLIS, Md. pieces of wreckage and parachute- draped bodies today littered a nearby cornfield where a big Air Force plane crashed in flames last night, killing all 18 aboard. The plane, a twin-engine C119 which had left Boiling Air Force Base a few minutes earlier, was seen ablaze in the air moments before it plunged to earth on a farm 19 miles south of Annapolis. It grazed the edge of a wooded area just off Maryland Route 2 and exploded at or shortly before the crash, scattering its victims over several acres of the rain-soaked farm. A spokesman at the airbase said 12 passengers and six crewmen were aboard when the ship took off at p.m. A watch found at the scene had stopped at The Boiling Public Information Office indicated it .would be late today before identities of the vic- tims were made known.

State John Foster Dulles has now completed some miles of air travel in the interests of American foreign policy. Before he takes off for Geneva and what may be the mske-or-break point in his career as secretary of state, it may be worth taking a look at his political base at home. American foreign policy, as Dean Acheson learned to his sor row, is not made in a political vacuum. No matter how brilliant his diplomacy may be, a secretary of state is doomed to frustration and paralysis if he lacks a secure home base. Dulles realized this from the first, and immediately set out to strengthen his domestic position. He has scored, at best, only a partial success. He returned to find that the Re- publican Ser.ate majority leader, William Knowland. had already and released a speech full of implied criticism of his conduct. When he briefed the Senate leaders or. the Berlin meeting, only Sen Alexander Wiley among, the Re- publicans congratulated him. The others clearly suspected that he intended to recognize Communist China on the sly at Geneva. Dulles was genuinely hurt and dismayed by this reception. "They can't seern to get it out of their he is reported to have remarked, "that I'm really Dean Acheson in disguise." But the fact is that, from the very first, a large and powerful group within his own party has viewed Dulles with add suspicion. Linked With Dewey This group is largely found among the "Taft men" who identi- fy Dulles with the "Dewey (Continued on Page 16, Column 1) ALSOPS American Communist party last Local Republicans say GOP September instructed party mem-jwas founded in tne in im !at a meeting called by Alvan Earle a whig, fo form a new g WASHINGTON Secretary of j and directing their heaviest fire at McCarthy.

"Of he continued, "we know that if there is an attack on the United States, there are not going to be any consultations. But we had always believed that Mr. Dulles meant in the first place that there would, be no consultations if a situation arose involving the North Atlantic Treaty." Dulles had told the.
