In the present world situation, 1 the main aim and theroe of Presi- dent-elect Eisenhower's policy must be to maintain, to strengthen and to stabilize the Western alli- ance. Before he can achieve this aim, the biggest question Eisen- hower will have to answer is the Western alliance can be made economically workable. It can be said on highest author- ity that the new President's old friend, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, now means to press this question in the White House at the earliest possible date after foe inauguration. Work Out Plan At this very moment, the pre- parations for Churchill's approach to Eisenhower are going forward here in London, in the form of the grandiose Commonwealth Conference. Churchill, whose lack of interest in economic matters has always been notorious, has now entered the battle for Bri- tain's and the Commonwealth's ec- onomic stability with the vigor and determination he used tc reserve for shooting wars. Prior to the present' meeting, a drum fire of the famous Churchill minutes stir- red every Whitehall department to make the most vigorous and de- tailed preparations. Now, with the Commonwealth leaders gathered in London, the main hope is to work put the best plan possible to "permit the pound sterling to look the almighty dollar in the eye." When this Common- wealth plan has been agreed upon, Churchill means to go to Washing- ton and say to his former com- rade in arms, "This is what we think we can do. Now how about it, This question which Churchill will put to Eisenhower is much more urgent than most people sup- pose. By heavy sacrifices, Britain has now recovered from her third postwar economic crisis. Viewed as a business concern, Britain is paying her way again. Yet the fact remains that the reserves of hard cash which constitute the working capital of Britain and her Com- monwealth are still fearfully low- well under the two billion dollar figure which used to be consider- ed the rockbottom minimum. Fear Recession This means, in turn, that Britain and the other nations of the Sterl- ing area are almost totally unpro- tected against any unfavorable jog of the world economy. Let a slight American recession reduce our dol- lar purchases of British goods. Or let the price of Britain's imports rise a bit more rapidly than the price of British, exports. Ruin will again stare Britain in the face. Britain's reserves today are far lower than they were in the suc- cessive crises of 1947, 1949 and 1951, each of which almost plunged this country into final bankruptcy. The regular recurrence of these crises has also produced a perilous new psychology. Still another cris- is will not merely be economical- ly disastrous; it will also be litically catastrophic. For one more crisis is fairly certain to drive the British to give up their hard struggle to maintain them selves as a great world power and our own chief ally. No wonder, then, that Winston Churchill has entered the unfamil- iar battle for economic stability breathing his old war-like fire.- Yet all the great old man's courage and determination will not win this new battle if President-elect Eis- (Continued on Page 9, Column 2.)

Marvin S. Cohn of Portland, Ore., was cited for auto- mobile speeding here Nov. 4 while awaiting shipment to Korea. Justice of the Peace Georgia Crowley received a letter from Cohn two weeks ago saying: "I will be unable to appear in court as my ship has sailed for Korean waters. I would caution you to submit any financial claims rapidly, because jet flying, espe- cially in the Korean theater, has turned out to be hazardous." And he mentioned the possibility of the justice receiving "an 'adressee de- ceased' letter in return. Judge Crowley sent a request that the fine be paid. It came back Tuesday stamped "Addressee de- ceased." Across a corner of the letter was scribbled: "Ens. Cohn was killed in his jet plane when it crashed aboard the USS Philippine Sea Nov. 18 while on training maneuvers." In San Francisco, Conn's sister, Mrs. A. B. Sanford, confirmed the report of his death. to) SHOPPING '01 PAYS LEFT WCHRI5TMA5SEAU Could Indicate Tough Time for ike in Congress By JOE HALL WASHINGTON UP) Sen. Robert A. Taft's sudden blast at Presi- dent-elect Eisenhower for his choice of a secretary of labor to- day posed the possibility Eisen- hower could face as rebellious a Congress as those President Tru- man had in recent years. Congressmen were wondering whether the Ohio senator's bitter denunciation of Eisenhower's se- lection of Martin P. Durkin to the labor called it "incred- 1. All-out war between the forces of Eisenhower and Taft in the in- coming Republican administra- tion; or, 2. A temporary, isolated blow- up growing out of Taft's tender- ness toward his own Taft-Hartley labor relations law. Could Be Serious If the answer turns out to be "yes" to the first question, then the result could be the same frus- tration of Eisenhower's legisla- tive program that has 'afflicted many of Truman's proposals. Throughout the Truman adminis- tration, conservative Southern sen- ators have joined with Republicans to block most "Fair Deal" domes- tic legislation. The few Republican senators at the Capitol today were exceeding- ly wary about stepping into any potential struggle between the President-elect and Taft. But there were straws in the wind. Some GOP senators were hoping Taft's denunciation of the Durkin appointment was tied chiefly to the senator's concern for mainten- ance of the basic principles of the Taft-Hartley law. Taft's blistering statement em- phasized that Durkin was a union official and a Democrat who op- posed Eisenhower. But it also stressed that he "advocated the repeal of the Taft-Hartley law." Agrees to Minor Changes The Ohioan has indicated willing- ness to go along with minor changes in the law favored by Eisenhower and union leaders. But he has made unmistakably clear that he wants no tampering with what he considers the act's essentials. Some Senate sources were of the opinion that Taft's next moves on taking over the Republican Senate majority leader post would show whether he really planned a showdown fight with Eisen- hower, If Taft moves openly to grab that key job, it would be highly significant, these sources agree A president must consult regularly with the majority leader to -put over his legislative program. Taft has pronounced himself as "available" for the job, but he said at a news conference here after the Nov. 4 election he was not campaigning for it. Senators at the Capitol were cer- tain Taft has become increasingly irritated in the last 10 days at the trend of Eisenhower appointments. The Ohioan said he was asked to submit recommendations for Cabinet, jobs and did so. But he has let' it be known that not one of his first choices was selected. In contrast, some of the Cabinet selections and White House staff were close associates of Thomas E. Dewey, Taft's archrival in GOP affairs for years. Sought Assurances At the famous Eisenbbwer-Taft Morningside Heights conference ia September, one of the points Taft emphasized most was that he had been given assurances there would be no discrimination against his supporters in appointments in the Eisenhower administration.

Left to right: Shirley Skinner, Adrian, Ga.; Donna Siddall, Laurens, la.; WASHINGTON Foster Dulles, who will be the next secretary of state, declared at the State department today that "loyal servants of our government have nothing to fear" from the Eisen- hower administration. He specifically promised that the foreign service will be "protected as a non-partisan career Foreign service officers are the professional diplomats who repre- sent the United States abroad. At the same time Dulles asserted that "many angles need to be looked into and will be looked into very thoroughly." He did not am- plify this point. Dulles conferred with Secretary of State Dean Acheson for 30 min- utes beginning about a, m. was photographed with Acheson and by himself, talked briefly with reporters and then went to the Pentagon building to confer with Secretary of Defense Lovett. He said that otherwise today he would see Assistant Secretary of State John Allison, who recently I returned from a tour of the Far I East, and would dine tonight_ with Undersecretary of I Bruce. From Bruce, he expects to receive five books describing U. S. foreign policy, how it operates, as well as current, urgent problems over the world and plans for dealing with them. The visit was Dulles' first to the State department since the political campaigns during which he bitter- ly criticized Acheson policies. It was also the Jfirst occasion en which. a prospective Republican official sent on for an promised has offered what amounted to a i rejection by the Chinese and North promise of job protection for I Korean Reds.

Death Follows Conviction in Prague Purge Anti-Zionist Trial Of Traitors' Hints Of Spreading Terror By RICHARD A. O'REGAN VIENNA, Austria Rudolf Slansky, former boss of the Czecho- slovak Communist party, was hang- ed today with 10 others who worshiped at the shrine of Joseph Stalin. They died at Pankrac prison as traftors to Stalinism. Prague radio announced the ex- ecutions, carried out Only six days after the 11 were sentenced to death. This foreshadowed a possible new and even broader purge of Czechoslovak Communist ranks. Eight of those executed, includ- ing Slansky, were Jews whose wooden confessions in their trial had the appearance of a concerted attack by the Communist party on world Jewry. Three others drew life sentences. Slansky with former Foreign Minister Vlado dementis and the others confessed to a long list crimes against Stalinism. Those in- cluded "Trotskyite, Zionist, Bour- geois-nationalist" activities, plot- ting with "Anglo-American imper- ialists" and other actions Com- munism regards as treason. Purge Victims Most of the purge victims had been high in Communist party councils, giving the trial appearance of a climax of a strug- gle for power between Slansky and President Klement Gottwald. But the anti-Zionist tone of the pro- ceedings indicated the purge was to spread to all the other satellite Communist countries and perhaps even to the Soviet Republics the USSR. Within the Soviet Union itself there were signs of a growing reign of terror, particularly in re- publics such as the Ukraine. Thera a Soviet military court has just sentenced three high party trade officials to death as "enemies of the people" for embezzlement. The heavy sentence was highly unusual for this crime, rife throughout the whole USSR. The charge that the three hid gold acquired in their operations hinted that the Ukrijn- ian underground movement, rising out of its own ashes, was active again and the real target of the crackdown. Trials now are expected soon in Romania, where Jewess Ana i Pauker, former party boss, has The salesman, B, E.

Employes of a dairy in the vicinity found the 33-year-old sales- man, clad only in underwear and shoes, sunburned on arms and legs and black from trying to drag his paralyzed legs through the dirt.

Prodded by Questions about the GiJpatric speech and about possible duplication of effort by the USAF and Navy in the air, Lovett said: 1. He happened to differ with Gilpatric's views. 2. Yes, there probably is some point at which some duplication is reached but the more methods there are of delivering explosives on a target the better off we are. 3. The thing to do is to give the services what they reasonably need for a reasonable function. McCarthy Assumes Lattimore Inquiry Will Be Completed WASHINGTON Oi Sen.
