Dulles himself served as a Re publican consultant to Democratic Secretary of State Dean Acheson and Democratic officials in pre vious years. Since the election of Democratic majorities for the Congress con vening in January, there has been speculation whether Dulles adopt such a pattern of bipartisan relationship for the present Repub- lican administration. It appears now that he is willing to do so if that 'action seems desir- able to the Democratic leadership. He does not! himself, intend to take the initiative in proposing some Democratic expert on for- eign policy to join the State De- partment staff, v In any movetof that sort he -e- aortedly 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 a bipartisan development of for- eign policy and will consult with Democratic leaders. The Demo- crats likewise have been talking about cooperation in this field. Dulles and former Secretary of State Cordell Hull helped Isy the basis of bipartisanship in 1944 with an agreement to keep the United issue out of heated polit cal debate in that year's presiden tial election. Dulles was a nationa figure in the field of foreign policj for years prior to that. P" Afterward he became closely as sociated with 1he late Sen. Van denberg served as ac visor to several secretaries o state, and finally became a mem her of the Senate from New York state himself. It was after these events that he joined Acheson a a Republican consultant and sue eessfully executed the task of ne gotiating Japanese peace and de- fense treaties. The New York Times reported in today's edition that Dulles would be willing, in support of biparti sanship, io name a qualified Dem ocrat as a consultant.

So, Says Aide of Ike's Pledge to Run TOLEDO, Ohio ai President Eisenhower's press secretary to- day Jabeled as "a lot of nonsense" a published report that the chief executive had promised Republi- can leaders he would run for re- election in 1956. The secretary, 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 le was informed Eisenhower made such a promise to GOP leaders at a White House meeting shortly after last week's elections in which Republicans lost control of Con- fess to the Democrats. "It's a lot of Hagertv told newsmen. "There was no such meeting." Hagerty was asked about the re port as the President hunting duck near Toledo on Lake Erie. Mann said in his story: "At the meeting, party leaders told the President the party would be with- out leadership if the President de- cided to retire. "Party leaders attributed the OP loss of the House and Senate to more than just the traditional off-year election Mann said the story of the meet- ing was obtained from a person very close to the President, and added "several members of the President's personal staff will be replaced soon with persons skilled n the art of practical politics." The political writer said, how- ever, this definitely will not in- clude presidential assistant Sher- man Adams, who, he added, will continue on as an extremely im- portant1 member of the President's advisory staff. Hagerty also said he heard about some criticism of Eisenhow- er's chief aide, Adams, and volun- eered this statement: "The President has complete aith and trust in Sherman Ad- ams." Hagerty made the statement af- er a reporter told him, without mentioning Adams, that there lave been reports Eisenhower is ilanning to reshuffle his Vfhite louse staff with a view to bring- ng in aides with more political xperience.

Strauss of the Atomic Inergy Commission said today he Dixon-Yates controversy "has ot affected our weapons pro- gram." "I'm afraid." Strauss told the enate-House Committee on Atom- c Energy, "there has been a mis- eading impression conveyed" dur- ng hearings on the controversial ower deal "to the effect that he 'eapons program has been im- aired." "In my he declared, it has not." Strauss gave the committee hi.- iews under questioning by Cen. nderson (D-NM) obviously in- pired by earlier testimony from USC Commissioner Thomas E.

The contract with the private utility group was formally signed by the AEC yesterday with con- sent from Murray. He avoided full endorsement 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 discussions." Sen. Anderson himself told the committee that he had 2 atomic installation at Los Alamos, N.M., and "it was my impression the work on the weapons program was moving ahead rapidly." Cyclist, 17, Hurt in Crash Robert Lewis Cook, 17 year old Abilene High School student, was injured in a motorcycle car collision near South Junior High School about 8 a.m. Friday.

The accident was investigated by City Patrolman L. B. McMss- ter. First Reading Set Next Friday Carver Addition and adjacent Crow Addition. Negro areas just southeast of Abilene, will be annexed to the city for all purposes. 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 regu- lar meeting. First Reading Nov. 19 First reading of the merger ordinance probably will be held at the next regular commission session, Fridav morn- ing, 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 commission is making the annexation without ask- ing consent of the residents. Will Help Elmdalc Annexation may solve the fin- ancial problems of Elmdale School District. Elmdale school officials recently pleaded with the Abilene City Commission to an- nex 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 ar- rangements for adequate financ- ng of its white pupils when the Negroes were taken over by Abi- years the Elmdale white lene. For 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 while tchool above the eighth grade. Abilene School Board has com plained that for several years the money Elmdale district pays Abi lene district for itj transfers hasn't nearly covered Abilene'e cost of educating the transfers Transfers Taken Transfers from Elmdale were accepted again this fall by the Abilene School Board on condition hat Elmdale work out some other arrangement by mid-term. Elmdale'has indicated it may oin another district or send its ransfers elsewhere when Negroes are annexed to Abilene. It has pointed to low tax income as the eason it hasn't been able to pay Abilene fully for educating the ransfers. Taking Carver Addition into the :ity for all purposes includes mak- ing it a part of the municjpally controlled Abilene School District. From T P iMt West Boundaries of the area which he commission decided Friday to annex are: From the Texas t Pa- cific Railway to South llth St., and from T-P Lane west to the present east city limit line. Recently the city extended wa- er mains into Carver Addition, even though it was outside the city imits. Reason was that the area constituted a health problem, with people drinking from wells that ometimes got contaminated from Dutdoor toilets in rainy seasons. In the annexation, the commis- ion plans to include also two >ieces of property on the west side if Pioneer Dr. These are the Mag- nolia Petroleum Co. building and Tack 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 olcly for the purposes of controll- ng zoning, health and sanitation, ind didn't include schools or other ervices. Nor did it provide for ity taxes or votes of the residents city matters. The newly proposed annexation would be a full-fledged merger, giving residents of Carver and irow Additions all rights of ther Abilenians and making them subject to city and school taxes. The commission Friday set Dec. 3 to open construction bids on wa- ter and sewer mains which will serve the future Thunderbird Mo- tor Hotel on East 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 sew- er lines will be taken. Owners of the. Thunderbird Mo- tor Hotel will help finance the wa- ter and sewer mains. An agree- ment will be signed between them and the city stating the propor- tions to be paid.
