state agencies set up a joint committee to study the possibility of upgrading the cur riculums at the junior colleges to improve the caliberof education The Iowa Legislature set up the procedure for such improvement of standards and tied the proposal to increased state aid to the junior colleges The 16 schools must meet state standards before qualifying for the aid So far the state agencies have granted only the increased aid The Legislature authorized pay ment of 1 per day per pupil to the colleges as opposed to the old rate of 25 cents per pupil per day Although official standards will not be tightened now one state official said he expected tremen dous voluntary upgrading of standards by the junior colleges themselves This includes an im provement in administration and general atmosphere at the col Plans to Retain Adams Admits Aide Imprudent WASHINGTON President Eisenhower said Wednesday that Sherman Adams was imprudent in his relations with Bernard Goldfine but need him to continue as top presidential aide Eisenhower made it plain at a news conference that he has no intention of firing Adams al though he did not say that in so many words In anticipation that the Presi dent would talk about the hottest Washington subject of the mo ment 257 newsmen were packed into the conference room AT THE OUTSET Eisenhower announced he had a statement he wanted to read Then reading from typewritten large cards Eisenhower said Adams had been imprudent as Adams himself ac knowledged in testimony Tuesday before a House investigating com mittee Despite that imprudence Ei senhower said he has reached these personal conclusions 1 I believe that the presenta tion made by Gov Adams to the congressional committee Tuesday truthfully represents the pertinent facts 2 I

then went on to say Admitting the lack of that careful prudence in this incident that Gov Adams Tuesday re ferred to I believe with my whole heart that he is an invaluable public servant doing a difficult job efficiently honestly and tire lessly After reading the statement Ei senhower said he have nothing more to say regarding the AdamsGoldfine case But as the news conference progressed he did reply tosev eral questions concerned either directly with the matter or with general principles related to it On one related matter Eisen hower did decline comment This was when he was told that some Republicans running for reelec tion this year say they are going to have difficulty facing the voters on the AdamsGoldfine issue THE PRESIDENT said he did not care to say anything on that In his statement which he read solemnly and somewhat sternly the President said intense pub licity surrounding Adams made it desirable and even necessary that he start the session with an ex pression of his own views First as a result of this entire incident all of us should have been made aware of one truth Eisenhower said That is that a gift is not necessarily a bribe One is evil the other is a tangible ex pression of friendship Adams has acknowledged that he accepted gifts some of them expensive from Goldfine during a period when the industrialist was in trouble before federal agencies Adams also has said that Goldfine got no favored treat ment because of his friendship with him and that he Adams never sought any such treatment for his friend Democrats have been quick to pounce upon the incident recall ing similar Republican criticism during the deep freezer episode of the Truman administration Republican party reaction has been mixed many legislators calling for Adams

subject to fiveidays sitter debate on the Senate floor now goes to the House Hearings on similar legislation are under way in that body but the meas ures prospects there are uncer tain The bill embodies the most far reaching labor legislation to considered by Congress passage of the TaftHartley law in 1947 SEN KENNEDY DMassj arid other sponsors of the bill which they conceded did not satisfy either extreme in the politically charged labor field succeeded ia defeating on the Senate floor all amendments they opposed but one this was doneby a eoalitioa consisting mostly of Democratic votes but including several Re publicans led by Sen Irving M Ives a cosponsor The sponsors called the bill strtng and effective in dealing withunion abuses but not puni tive SEN McCLELLAN DArk agreed with

true It is Rus sian policy that we must watch and be on guard against not merely propaganda Soviet propaganda over the air is particularly skillful and wide spread The Russians have 147 short wave stations and beam 2000 hours of n e w s to the world every week About 112 hours are directed at the United States particularly the Eastern seaboard THE AMERICAN authorities make no effort to jam these pro grams They are not much lis tened lo by North Americans Any reasonably sophisticated United States listener would laugh them off But they can be effective elsewhere and the Rus sians do their best to reach every body even in the most remote corners of the earth For instance Radio Moscow is heart in English by Eskimos in t h a northern extremities of Canada No other station reachet this distant part of the world ex cept a minor one in Greenland Also the Russians miss no oppor tunity It was no accident that when the first earth satellite launched their services made a particular point one day
