jerk Hoffa Someones gunning for Adlai Jungle folk are restless By LYLE C WILSON WASHINGTON UPI The word in the political jungle to day is that someone better armed than most is gunning for Ambassador Adlai son E Steven The world persists despite shower of denials These were denials of a story in a current magazine accusing Stevenson of proposing during the recent Cuban crisis that the United States trade Turkish Greek and British missile bases for the bases established by the Soviet Union in Cuba An official unidentified is quoted in the story as having said Adlai wanted a Munich and then tohave outlined the missile Thus ac cused of in the deadly tradition of the British Neville Chamberlain Stevenson instantly repliedthat the story was inaccurate and un true Some hours later the White House issued a statement on the story Press Secretary Pierre Sal inger said Stevenson strongly had supported President Ken nedys hard missile base policy In any event these denials were predictable Stevenson scarcely could have remained long as US ambassador to the United Nations if the President had failed forcefully to deny that his ambassador had wanted to ap pease the Communists To permit such an indictmen to stand against Stevenson un challenged would have invited a powerful campaign to drive him out of public life There would be no place in any US administration for a man sue

bandies ten by Stewart Alsop Washing ton editor of the magazine ami Charles L Bartlett Washington correspondent for the Chat tanooga Tenn Times a pair of skilled and experienced news men More than that Alsop and Bartlett enjoy unusual connec tions news sources and such Bartlett long has been an imtimate of the Presidents fam ily a close friend Their con nections their standing in the community and their long ex perience in the ways of the political jungle combine to give a story under their joint byline a very substantial claim to credence If their story was a phoney as claimed by Stevenson then Alsop and Bartlett have taken in by a shrewd hoaxer If so then the hoaxer must have consider able standing in the community himself and be in some way identified with the Kennedy ad ministration Else the exper ienced newsmen would not have been hoaxed because they easily could check the facts as pre sented to them Correct or not the informa tion had to come to the writers from what they would regard as a solid reputable well in formed source Such a source would have to have administra tion connections The jungle folk will expect further developments in the Stevenson story V Detroit and the

said Wednesday that 75 unmarked Highway Pa trol cars are being put into service to stop what he called an epidemic of traf fic fatalities First of the cars probably will be on the road by Friday morn ing he said The Iowa patrol has not used unmarked cars for 11 years but Pesch said he first proposed it to 3ov Norman Erbe for resump tion earlier this year He said Erbe rejected the idea at the time because the traffic death situation was not so bad but he now approves the plan The 75 cars comprise about 30 per cent of the patrols force In signia will be stripped from the doors and flashing dome light will be removed Pesch said the drivers will re main in patrol uniforms and th cars will havearedlight mount ed just inside the rear window another red light on the righ front fender a spotlight on the drivers side and a radio antenna For the time being the cars will bear Iowa Highway Patrol li cense plates but Pesch said he is asking the State Executive Coun cil to authorize 75 socalled dum my plates which will be selected at random from tags around the state so the license plates will not show whether the car is a patrol ar Pesch told a news conference I reject as selfseeking and un nformed any partisan complaint hat might be made because of his action I also reject any argu ments of sportsmanship and fair Jlay that might be raised A prob em that takes some 600 lives in his state
