ROBERT DONOVAN New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON House staff which will surrounc President Eisenhower from now until Jan20 1961 will be mor conservative and less dominate by a single personality than hi bid staff In the opinion of Washingto observers this was the signif cance of the recent staff change Under Maj Gen Wilton B Per sons Ret the office of the As sistant to the President will no be the oneman powerhouse it ha been under Sherman Adams A signs point toward a Irarisforma tion in which many of the task Adams has performed will be spread among other members of the staff Another prospect is that the change will mean greater influ ence in the White House for Vice President Richard M Nixon There is no thought of the Vice Presidents stepping into the White House and exercising any kind of executive authority But he and Gen Persons are much closer personally than Nixon has been to Adams and Gen Per sons is likely to be more recep tive tp Nixons views and to his help than Adams has been POLITICALLY Persons an Alabaman with a longback ground as an Army officer is more conservative than Adams By temperament he is more cau tious Under his direction of the White House staff it is likely that Gerald DMorgan special coun sel to the President will a fig ure of rising influence Morgan is rated as a sound lawyer butas one of the conserv atives on the staff Not through any calculatec policy on the Presidents part but as a result of personal circum stances the more liberal mem bers of the staff men like Max well M Rabb and Dr Gabriel Hauge are goneThe White1 House staff as constituted today has a very practical character noticeably lacking in the kind of idea men who were around in the days of C D Jackson and Nelson A Rockefeller The feeling In Washington is that if the President had wished to have another onemanband in Sherman Adams office he would have moved an eminent outsider into Adams place By promoting Gen Persons to the job instead Eisenhower has kept the White House machinery in familiar hands holding dislocation to a minimum but has taken a def inite step toward spreading out authority among the rest of the staff MODERN HOSPITAL CONCEPT DEVELOPED Advancing Age of lowans DES MOINES W The ad vancing age of Iowas popula tion is one of the major prob lems facing the state mental hospitals a study of the in stitutions revealed Tuesday Another is what to do about the many elderly patients now in the mental institutions for whom there is little hope for cure or substantial improve ment But the report prepared by Dr James Cromwell state di rector of mental institutions said Iowa is gradually develop ing a modern mental hospital concept This has sharply re duced the number of patients in the four state hospitals In fact thereport said the patient load now is the lowest in more than 30 years In the long run Dr Crom well said modern treatment methods cost the taxpayer less than older techniques although more expensive This is true he explainedbecause intensive modern treatment sharply re duces the length of time a pa tient need be hospitalized But elderly patients present a special problem that sooner or later must be solved the re port said About 28 per cent of the pa tients admitted to the state hospitals have been those over M who were diagnosed as suf ferers from senile psychosis or cerebral is mental deterioration brought on by age Theres no known cure for these ailments Thus most of these patients remain in the in stitution until they die The longer the patient stays the more difficult it isfor him to be released even when bet ter treatment later becomes available the report said This creates the urgency of early diagnosis and intensive treatment nt in ues LABOR TROUBLE This was the
