Va. Vincent Hamrick, 83, looked1 like a shorn sheep today. He'd had his first haircut in eight years. A Republi- can clip, he called it. An "Eisen- hower special." Uncle Vincent vowed when Gov. Thomas Dewey lost in 1944 he'd never go to a barber again until the Republicans regained the White House. So there was quite a ceremony Tuesday in Uncle Vincent's lumber yard office. Columnist Charles Connor of the Charleston Daily Mail reported the proceedings. Cousin Abner Hamrick, who qual- ified because in addition to being a barber he is also a Republican, wielded the shears. Everyone said Uncle Vincent looked 20 years younger. "Yes, said Uncle Vincent. "Ike's victory took 20 years my life, 20 years of Democratic mis-rule. I feel like a new man. I feel like I've been born all over again." "You're going to have to wash your neck, Uncle said Cousin Abner, "It's sort of dis- colored." "Democratic snapped the old man.

By ALTON L. BLAKESLEE Associated Press Science Reporter ST. LOUIS skin sprinkled from a salt shaker to cover burns is a prospect raised today in a report to the National Academy of Sciences. The skin would be quick-frozen, dried under a vacuum, then pow- dered and stored under vacuum. But the skin would remain alive, able to provide a living cover as a first step in skin-grafting over severe burns. Blood vessels or other human spare parts might also be kept alive, intact, for years by the same freezing and drying. The possibility is foreseen in success in freeze-drying influenza virus and other tissues, and finding it still alive some time later. This work was described by Dr. Donald Greiff, professor of biology at St. Louis University. He used a specially-built apparatus to freeze TODAY Friends of America Speak Up By JOSEPH ALSOP the virus or tissue with dry ice and acetone, and dry it under low pressure to Vaporize, the liquid. Cooperating in the project are Drs. Henry Pinkerton, Herman Blumen- thal and Masahiro Chiga. Glycerine is a second possibility for suspended animation of living tissues kept in cold storage. It can act like an anti-freeze to preserve frozen tissues, said Drs. B. J. Luyet and P. M. Gehenio of St. Louis University.

Until then, he said, "we will have absolutely no comment." spective, President-elect Eisenhow- er's task looks even more stagger- ingly difficult than it did in Amer- ica. The most rapid sounding of the situation over here is enough to dredge up a whole series of acutely .unpleasant facts, all of which bear very directly on the success or failure of the new American administration. First, Gen. Eisenhower and his advisers ought to realize immedi- ately that throughout Europe, the Republican victory is now being taken as an isolationist victory. In- formed high officials think that this is probably the case. The less informed general public is con- vinced of it. It may seem pretty ridiculous, in view of Gen. Eisenhower's own past record. But in these nervous capitals over here, serious and so- ber men now think that Sen. Rob- ert A. Taft will probably desifn the new American foreign policy, while Gen. Douglas MacArthur plans the new defense policy. The friends of America are discouraged and all but ready to run for cover. The anti-Americans are crowing with triumph. If Gen. Eisenhower genuinely intends to adhere to the broad principles of foreign policy in which he has always believed, he cannot say so too soon or too loudly. In Midst of Crisis Second, and much more signifi- cant, Gen. Eisenhower will take office in the midst of a major crisis in America's relations with the other Western allies. This cris- is has been building up behind the scenes during the period when America's whole attention was concentrated on domestic politics. It has been made worse by the widespread fear of Republican in- tentions. Tliis fear is making mat- ters worse. But what is far more important, the crisis can hardly be met unless Gen. Eisenhower temporarily sets aside the Repub- lican projects for economy in for- eign and defense spending. For a while, in truth, the job of cementing the Western alliance is virtually certain to demand heav- ier spending, not less spending. The alternative would seem to be the gradual deterioration of the Western united front againsjt So- viet-aggression, the gradual peter- ing out of the Western defense ef- (Continued on Page 5, Column 5.)

Newell Anderson, circulation manager of the Tupelo Journal, decided to return to Fargo in his native North Dakota. He told police the men took him for a wild ride in the country Monday night and roughed him up and that one of the men said he "didn't like Yan- kees around." George McLean, publisher of tbe Journal, said Anderson began get- ting anonymous telephone calls more than two weeks ago telling him, "we don't like foreigners coming in here and you'd better get out of town." Anderson and his 21-year-old wife came here-Oct. 1 from Grand Forks N.D., where he had worked on the Grand Forks Herald. They were married there last June. D. B. Crockett, chief of police in this Northeast Mississippi town of said he had some clues but could" not disclose them now. "After he (Anderson) leaves, I think it'll blow Crockett raid. Anderson said he was unable to identify the men who roughed him up. He said they wore gauze-like hoods of daxk material with no eyeholes. They cut off some of las hair and nickecl his face with a razor, the newsman added. McLean said the cuts were like deep scratches; and that the men also slapped him around. Mayor G. F.

(AP Wirephoto to The Republican- Herald) Dodge Sits In On Budget Discussion Federal Spending May Be Reduced By Late in 1954 WASHINGTON elect Eisenhower's financial rep- resentative, Detroit banker Joseph Dodge, met today with Budget Di- rector Frederick J. Lawton, but told reporters he would not try to influence the size or nature of the budget now being prepared. At a news conference in Law- ton's office, Dodge said he would not agree or disagree with any- thing he saw in the budget, -which covers government spending for the year beginning next July 1. The fact he sat in on budget dis- cussions should not be taken as approval or disapproval, he em- phasized. A reporter asked Dodge whether he had been offered the post of budget director under the Eisen- hower administration and had ac- cepted. He replied, "it is not true." However he declined to say whether this meant it was not true that he (1) had been offered the job or (2) had accepted it. He said: "My objective is to inform my- self and Gen, Eisenhower the facts and factors connected with this budget so that Gen. Eisen- hower may have some basis for drawing his own conclusions." To Study Plan Dodge said he would spend to- day learning from Lawton the status of budget preparations and what is coming up. Lawton has prepared Dodge an office near his own. He declined repeatedly to give any indication of how he thought the budget might be trimmed or revised but indicated he does ex- pect the new administration to make changes. He said "I be- lieve Mr. Lawton will concur with me that it is even customary for presidents who have made their own budgets to revise them from time to time." Bank P-isident Dodge, 61, is a Detroit bank president who has been decorated by President Truman for his serv- ices as financial adviser in post- war Germany and Japan. He also is a Republican and former finan- cial adviser to Dwight D. Eisen- hower, who will replace Truman in the White House Jan, 20.. His appointment by the presi- dent-elect to serve as a personal liaison man with outgoing .budget officials is without precedent. The precise nature of his role may be worked out within the next few days in conferences with Fred- eric J. Lawton, President Truman's budget Tlirector, who already has cleared out an office and desk for Dodge's- use. To Study Budget Preparation of the budget, a book the size of a metropolitan tele- phone directory crammed full of detailed figures, already has been under way for months.

Fulbright Wants Stevenson to Rebuild Party WASHINGTON William Fulbright of Arkansas said today the Democratic party ought to be rebuilt from the ground up and Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson is the man to head the job. Fulbright, who served in Steven- s o n's unsuccessful presidential campaign headquarters, told a re- porter he does not go along with suggestions that Stevenson be ap- pointed by President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower to the U. S. United Nations delegation or asked to take on any other federal job. "I think Stevenson should main- tain an independent status and be ready, perhaps along about March, to begin speaking for the opposi- tion on issues raised by the Re- the Arkansas senator said. Sen, Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, scheduled to become minority lead- er in the Republican-controlled Sen- ate, agreed in a separate inter- view that the defeated Democratic presidential nominee ought to be- come the party's general spokes- man. As the result of experiences in the campaign, Fulbright said he believes the Democratic organiza- tions in New York and Chicago need rebuilding. He said he thinks Stevenson could learn much about how to do it by studying the or- ganization which turned out a large majority for the Democratic nom- inee in Philadelphia. "What we need in 'the party is young blood, new faces and new Fulbright declared. "The question is: Who is going to pick these men, encourage them to work in the party organization? I think Stevenson is the man for that job." The Arkansas senator said he thinks that while there ought to be no Democratic sniping at Eisen- hower fer polities' sake, there will be plenty of room for opposition to Republican proposals-in the new Congress. General Calls GOP Leaders For Conference May Include Taft, Wiley At Conference By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH AUGUSTA, Ga. President- elect Dwight D. Eisenhower is planning an important round conferences with Republican lead- ers in New York next week before leaving for Korea, associates said today. These associales, who asked not jto be named, said the conferees may include Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, chairman of the Senate GOP policy committee, and Sen. Alexander Wiley of Wisconsin, in line to head tie Senate Foreign Relations Committee when the Re- publicans take over control of Con- gress in January. Eisenhower, vacationing at the Augusta National Golf Club, plans to head for New York Sunday or Monday. To Meet Trumin He will confer the early part of the week at the White House with President Truman, who has invited the generaHo sit in at a discussion of. international and domestic prob- lems facing the new Republican administration. Aides of the president-elect said he wants to talk over such matters first with GOP congressional lead- ers but may switch signals, go to the White House first, and meet with them later in the week. the United Na- tions General Assembly in New York as a U. S. delegate, said yes- terday that Eisenhower has asked him to a meeting two weeks hence for a discussion of American for- eign policy. Eisenhower's press secretary, James C. Hagerty, confirmed here that Eisenhower had extended an invitation to Wiley. But Hagerty hinted the get-together is booked for next week, rather tban the following week. Other sources said a full-seals meeting of GOP congressional leaders is in prospect. They added that those present may include Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge of Massa- chusetts and Detroit banker Joseph M. Dodge, both of whom were named by Eisenhower over the weekend as his liaison men with the out-going Truman administra- tion. Hagerty said late yesterday no date had been fixed for Eisen- hower's trip to trip the general said during the campaign he would make in an effort to find a way to end the conflict there. Hagerty indicated, however, that' arrangements for the trip are be- ing made with the Pentagon in Washington. And it was learned, meanwhile, that extensive security precautions are being taken to protect the president-elect against the possi- bility of an enemy attack during his visit to Korea and on the way there and back. Hagerty himself obviously had such arrangements in mind -when, he declined to discuss published i reports that Eisenhower probably will spend Thantegiving Day in Korea with front-line American troops. No Set "As we have said repeatedly, no date has been set for the Korean Hagerty declared. "The time just has not been decided." Later he added that even if a date had been picked for Eisen- hower's departure, be quite likely woujd not be able to make it public. At a news conference, Hagerty said be hoped to be able to make public by the end of this week "some information" about the Ko- rean trip. But he made it clear such information would be gener- alized. At his news .conference, Hagerty also was asked about published re- ports that Eisenhower may be ac- companied to Korea by Gen. Doug- las MacArthur, who commanded that theater until he was ousted, by President Truman. "I know of no such Hagerty said. He also said he knew nothing of a letter which reports from Ha- vana, said MacArthur had sent to Eisenhower pledging co-op- eration. MacArthur supported Taft for the GOP presidential nomi- nation, and he took no part in Eisenhower's campaign for the White House once he had defeated Taft at the party's July convention.
