Iff) A blaz- ing plane crash killed the presi- dents of Braniff International Air- ways and Texas Eastern Gas Transmission Co. and 10 com- panions last night. The plane smashed into an un- occupied house and burned for more than two hours. Ten wealthy passengers and two pilots return- ing from a weekend duck hunt in the Louisiana marshlands near the Gulf Coast were killed. There were no survivors.

On the strike proposal the Presi- dent recommended that before a union cO'Uld order workers off their jobs the workers be required to ap- prove the action in s secret, govern- ment-held election. Eisenhower's proposals contained some changes suggested by man- agement: and some asked by labor. Among the presidential propos- als was one that would give states more jurisdiction in labor disputes. Others would require employers to submit non-Communist affidavits as well as union leaders, and would remove some of the present restric- tions against union boycotts and Nitroglycerine Pills Give Boy, 2, Appetite Flexible Price Plan Backbone Of Program Wants Emphasis Placed on Winning Foreign Markets WASHINGTON W) President I Eisenhower recommended today that two and a half billion dollars i of present farm surpluses be "froz- I en" from regular markets and that 'the government move into a flex- ible farm price support program.

Bodies Unidentified The badly mangled and charred bodies remained unidentified early Eisenhower called on Congress to make a "thorough study" of union welfare pension funds "with a view of enacting such legislation as will protect and conserve these funds for the millions of working men and women who are the bene- ficiaries." There have been numerous sug- gestions from management and Congress members that such funds should have public supervision, similar to insurance regulations now in effect.

Eisenhower also sent the law- makers a separate message ask- ing revision of the Taft-Hartley labor law. A major point of his request on this was for a provision requiring a vote of workers before a strike could be called.

As he did in his State of the Union message last week, the President said a flexible price sup- port plan must be the back bone of new farm programs. Eisenhower also said special em- phasis in the future must be placed on efforts to develop foreign mar- kets for agriculture's greatly ex- panded productive capacity.

Hers are up-to-the minute facts and figures of cancer's incidence, symptoms, diagnosis and proven methods of effecting cures. Dr. Bauer offers sound guidance plus an impressive note of hope in the battle against this disease.) In order to understand cancer, insofar as it can be understood in the imperfect state of our knowledge, one must first compre- hend the principles of growth which govern living tissue. Normally, growth follows a well- defined pattern, which is the same -in all persons, withia fairly close limitations. Few adult persons ex- eeed six in f height or fail to 1 attain five feet.

When living tissue is injured, it tends to heal. When healing has been accomplished, the growth of new tissue ceases. Cancer is a disturbance of this normal growth pattern. Cells do not follow the usual laws. They j grow wild. They pass the bounds of the organs in which they be- long, and crowd into other tissues. They separate themselves from their neighbor cells, and wander or are carried through the blood (Continued on Page 14, Column 5.) CANCER fire.

(UP Telephoto) These surpluses are already in government hands through pur- chases under .price support pro- grams. The President said he will ask Congress to increase the price sup- port funds of the Commodity Cred- it Corp. from the present ceiling of 6% billion dollars to 81-S billion. He said that because of the big build up of surpluses in lie hands of the corporation under price sup. ports, more money will be needed. I Agriculture department experts have predicted that corporation in- vestments in surpluses may pass six billion dollars by spring. Under the flexible program, gov- ernment price guarantees would be high in time of shortages to encourage production, and low in times of surpluses to encourage consumption and discourage over- production. The President said the present war-born mandatory supports should be permitted to expire at the end of Ibis crop year. "A farm program" he said, "first of all should assist agricul- ture to earn its proportionate share of the national income. It must likewise aim at stability in farm income. There should therefore be no wide year to year fluctuation in the level of price support."
