IF PARTY WISHES Dulles May Take Democrat as Aide WASHINGTON — Associates said today that Secretary of State Dulles is prepared to name a Democrat as consultant on foreign policies if Democratic leaders put forth a qualified man. Dulles himself served as a Republican consultant to Democratic Secretary of State Dean Acheson and Democratic officials in previous years. Since the election of Democratic majorities for the Congress convening in January, there has been speculation whether Dulles would adopt such a pattern of bipartisan relationship for the present Republican administration. It appears now that he is willing to do so if that action seems desirable to the Democratic leadership. He does not, himself, intend to take the initiative in proposing some Democratic expert on foreign policy to join the State Department staff. in any move^of that sort he *e-portedly desires the Democratic leadership to select a man in whom the Democratic leaders would have confidence and who could speak in the councils of the State Department with an effective voice. President Eisenhower has said since the election that he will S"‘k a bipartisan development of foreign policy and will consult with Democratic leaders. The Democrats likewise have been talking about cooperation in this field. Dulles and former Secretary of State Cordell Hull helped Ly the ba.sis of bipartisanship in 1944 with an agreement to keep the United WHITE MAN HEAP CRAZY—Boyd fChief) Sylestine, a full-biooded Indian from the Alabama Casseti tribe, can’t quite get over this tepee business after helping put up his first tepee in his life—for the IIIR Club. The McMurry junior is from Livingston. (Staff photos by Don Hutcheson) Tepee Village Goes Up; Indians Warm Up Drums Squaw’s and braves at McMurry College pulled out their ridgepoles and “buffalo robes" Friday morning, and, quick as a tomtom beat, up went the traditional tepee village. Standing on the lawn between Radford Memorial Student Life! Center and South 14th St., the: village will be the site for many homecoming activities during the two - day pow-wow'. Homecoming got officially un- i derway with an 8 a.m. assembly I in Radford Auditorium Friday \ morning. Nine .McMiirriuns, representing the past, present, and future, made wishes for the college’s continued progress in an Indian ritual ceremqpy. They were Dr. Harold G. Cooke, representing the administration; Miss Jennie Tale, faculty; Bert Affleck, Student Council president; Orlie White, senior class president; Jimmy Forshey. junior president; Jack PIlug, sophomore president; David Burrow, fresh man president: Mrs, J. B. Jordan, alumni president; and Mike Moore, 10 - year - old son of Coach Wilford Moore, representing future classes. David Stephens and Liz Luhan, dressed in authentic Indian regalia, gave the closing benediction. After the assembly, the students went about their tepee building. Judging Saturday The 16 tepees will be judged Saturday morning, when Boy Scouts from Kotso Lodge, Order of the Arrow, Chisholm Trail Council, will perform Indian dances. Chief McMurry and the Reservation Princess will be crowned Friday night at 7 p.m. at a coronation program in Radford to the beat of the tom-tom. Football players will receive the school colors during the ceremonies. After the program, at 8 p.m., students will do a snake dance to the village, where the council fire will be lighted and the Boy Scouts will dance. McMurry Woman’s Club will entertain at a coffee at 9 p.m. in the Student Council Tepee, and the Exes' Pow-Wow will follow at 9:30 p.m. in the Radford Social Hall. ACC Game Film The Pow-Wow will feature games, food, conversation, and a film of the ACC game earlier this year which McMurry won 13 to 6, Mrs. Jordan said. Saturday at 10 a.m., following the tepee judging, the McMurry Indian Band will give its annual concert for exes in Radford. The Board of Trustees will hold a special called meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday in Radford, also. After the concert, exes will meet for luncheon in the McMurry Dining Hall. They will go from there to Fair Park Stadium, where the Indians are to play the Golden Gusties from Gustavus Adolphus College at St, Peter, Minn. Nations issue out ol heated political debate in that year’s presidential election. Dulles was a national figure in the field of foreign policy for years prior to that. Afterward he became clo.'iely associated with the late Sen. Van-denberg (R-Mich); served as ad-vi.sor to several secretaries of state, and finally became a member of the Senate from New York state himself. It was after these events that he joined Acheson as a Republican consultant and successfully executed the task of negotiating Japanese peace and defense treaties. The New York Times reported in today’s edition that Dulles would be willing, in support of bipartisanship, to name a qualified Democrat as a consultant. Not So, Says Aide of Ike’s Pledge to Run TOLEDO, Ohio m — President Eisenhower’s press secretary today labeled as "a lot of nonsense" a published report that the chief executive had promised Republican leaders he would run for re-election in 1956. The secretar>', James C. Hager-ty, was referring to a story in the Akron, Ohio, Beacon Journal. Political writer Clyde Mann wrote in today’s Beacon Journal he was informed Eisenhower made such a promise to GOP leaders at a White House meeting shortly after last w'eek’s elections in which Republicans lost control of Congress to the Democrats. “It’s a lot of nonsense," Hagerty told newsmen. “There was no such meeting." Hagerty was asked about the report as the President was hunting duck near Toledo on Lake Erie, Mann said in his story: “At the meeting, party leaders told the President the party would be without leadership if the President decided to retire. “Party leaders attributed the GOP loss of the House and Senate to more than just the traditional off-year election Gosses t." Mann said the story of the meeting was obtained from a person very close to the President, and added “several members of the President's personal staff will be replaced soon w-ith persons skilled in the art of practical politics." The political writer said, however. this definitely will not include presidential assistant Sherman Adams, who, he added, will continue on as an extremely important member of the President’s advisory staff. Hagerty also said he heard about some criticism of Eisenhower’s chief aide. Adams, and volunteered this statement: “The President has complete faith and trust in Sherman Adams.” Hagerty made the statement after a reporter told him, without mentioning Adams, that there have been reports Eisenhower is nlanning to reshuffle his W’hite House staff with a view to bringing in aides with more political experience.

Chest to End Drive Nov. 30 Closing date for the 1954 Abilene Community Chest campaign was set for Nov. 30 at a meeting »f the board of directors Friday morning. The Chest still lacks about $27,-000 towards its goal of $110,000, according to Don Scrlvner, chairman of general solicitations. Dr. Sterling Price, general campaign chairman, is to confer with chairmen of each division on means of winding up the campaign with a full quota, he said at the meeting. Firms which still ha\ e outstanding employe solicitation kits will be contacted by telephone in an effort to speed up completion of that division. Scrivner said. Scrivner urged that people who pledged to the Chest during the Simulcast Tuesday evening mail or bring their contributions to the Chest Shack at the corner of .North Third and Pine Sts. Radio contributions were credited to donors who had cards outstanding. If they did not have outstanding cards, the donations were credited to the residential section. Scrivner said. Division standings Friday morning were: Major gifts, $43,875; arts and crafts, $27,037.11; employes, $8,058.16; residential, $3,-199.35. Total for both major and general divisions was $82,169.62. ‘SPACE GIRL’ TCRNS SQUAW—Sheryl Ann Kolbe. 4, came to Albany from Michigan this week to gel some Texas sunshine.

Strauss of the Atomic Energy Commission said today the Dixon-Yates controversy “has not affected our w'eapons program." “I’m afraid." Strauss told the Senate-House Committee on Atomic Energy, “there has been a misleading impression conveyed" during hearings on the controversial power deal “to the effect that he weapons program has been impaired” “In my opinion," he declared “it has not.” Strauss gave the committee hi views under questioning by Sen. Anderson (D-NM* obviously inspired by earlier testimony from AEC Commissioner Thomas E Murray. Murray on Nov. 6 told the Committee it would be impossible to estimate the degree to which “top level commission attention has been diverted from its grave nrimary respon-sibilities by an issue only distantly related thereto". Strauss was called to the stand in w'hat Chairman Cole <R-NY) of the Committee hoped w’ould be the windup public session on the pro-Dosal to funnel nrivate power into lines of the Tenne.ssee Valley Authority as replacement for energy furnished to atomic installations. The contract with the private utility group was formally signed by the AEC ye.sterday with consent from Murray, He avoided full endor.sernent of the deal but said late changes in the government’s favor had met some of his major objections and he now feels “it is in the public interest to sign it.” Strauss in today’s hearing said “there never has been a degree of expansion in our production comparable to that which we are presently enjoying." He said he had studied the minutes of AEC meetings and found that the “Dixon-Yates affair’’ was involved in “something less than three per cent of the di.scussions." Sen. Anderson himself told the committee that he had visi* d , ? atomic installation at Los Alamos. N.M., and “it was my impression the work on the weapons program was moving ahead rapidly."

That decision was reached Friday morning by the City Commission. Commissioners made up their minds on a personal visit to the territory involved, immediately after Friday’s regular meeting. First Reading Nov. 19 First reading of the merger ordinance probably will be held at the next regular commi.ssion session. Friday morning, Nov. 19, City Manager Austin P. Hancock .said." It will be necessary to wait 30 days between the two readings of the ordinance, since the commi.ssion is making the annexation without asking consent of the residents. win Help Elmdalp Annexation may solve the fin- suhject to city and school taxes. The commis.sion Friday set Dec. 3 to open construction bids on wa- ancial problems of Elmdale j ter and .sewer mains whic h will School District. Elmdale school serve the future Thunderbird Mo- officials recently pleaded with the Abilene City Commission to annex Carver Addition to Abilene so as to relieve Elmdale district of the responsibility of schooling Carver students. The Elmdale representatives felt their district could make arrangements for adequate financing of its white pupils when the Negroes were taken over by Abilene. For year.s the Elmdale white pupils above the eighth grade, and all its Negro pupils (Carver Addition) have transferred into Abilene schools. Elmdale district ‘ doesn’t provide any Negro school, and doesn’t have a white school above the eighth grade. Abilene School Board has complained that for several years the money Elmdale district pays Abi- • lene district for iti transfers hasn’t nearly covered Abilene’s cost of educating the transfers. Transfers Taken Transfers from Elmdale were accepted again this fall tor Hotel on Ea.st Highway 80 and the Crow Addition. The water main will be mostly 14-inch diameter, but some will be 10, six and two-inch. Alternate bids on eight-inch and 10-inch sewer lines will l>e taken. Owners of the Thunderbird Motor Hotel will help finance the water and .sewer mains. An agreement will be signed between them and the city stating the proportions to be paid.

Taking Carver Addition into the city for all purposes includes making it a part of the municipally controlled Abilene School District. From TAP Lane West Boundaries of the area which the commission decided Friday to annex are: From the Texas & Pacific Railway to South llth St., and from T-P Lane west to the present east city limit line. Recently the city extended water mains into Carver Addition, even though it was outside the city limits. Reason was that the area constituted a health problem, with people drinking from wells that sometimes got contaminated from outdoor toilets in rainy seasons. In the annexation, the commission plans to include also two pieces of property on the we.st side of Pioneer Dr. These are the Magnolia Petroleum Co. building and Jack Hughes’ airport. Limited Annexation Some time ago Carver Addition was voted “limited annexation" to Abilene in the first such merger ever attempted here. That was solely for the purposes of controlling zoning, health and sanitation, and didn’t include schools or other services. Nor did it provide for city taxes or votes of the residents on city matters. The newly proposed annexation would be a full-fledged merger, giving residents of Carver and Crow Additions all rights of other Abilenians and making them three receiving the most votes will receive a bouquet at half-time from Supt. of Schools A. E. Wells. The nominees will also ride in the pre-game car parade beginning at 6:15 p.m. The parade will form at North Sixth and Cypress Sts. and go through »own before heading for Fair Park.
