McKeldin Is Warned
0. K. of Pike Route
Would Cost Votes
By Gene Goodwin
Star Staff Correspondent
BALTIMORE, May 26.—Gov.
McKeldin today was faced with
a plea to block construction of
a controversial road through
Chevy Chase, Md., or take the
consequences at the polls.
It would be bad politics to
extend the Washington National
pike through Montgomery Coun
ty sections of Rock Creek Park
and parts of Chevy Chase, Md.,
Montgomery political leaders
told him yesterday.
State Roads Commission offi
cials insisted, on the other hand,
that the proposed extention is
logical, economical and neces
sary to handle the heavy flow of
traffic to the District when the
new pike (relocated Route 240)
Is completed.
The Governor is going to have
to decide soon. The extension,
known as the southeast leg of
Route 240, is in the first four
year section of the State Roads
Commission’s 12-year program
and surveys already are under
way.
Estimates Vote Loss.
George E. Warner of Bethesda,
member of the Republican State
Central Committee of Mont
gomery County, told the Repub
lican Governor that if the south
east leg is built, the party would
lose 4,000 to 5,000 votes in Chevy
Chase.
Mr. Warner and other politi
cal leaders joined former United
States Senator Gerald P. Nye in
pleading with Gov. McKeldin to
stop the proposed extension for
his own political good.
Mr. Nye, who once was Re
publican Senator from North Da
kota, lives at 6 Farmington drive
in the Chevy Chase section,
through which the southeast leg
would pass. He organized oppo
sition to the proposed road.
He bases his opposition chiefly
on the fact that the southeast leg
would open up Rock Creek for
an expressway into downtown
Washington.
State roads officials admitted
yesterday it is their hope the
southeast leg eventually will be
extended into the District through
the park.
Planned That Way.
“That’s the way we had it
planned,” said Norman M.
Pritchard, locations engineer for
the commission. "District high
way authorities seemed very op
timistic about using Rock Creek
Park for that purpose.”
The disputed leg would extend
from relocated Route 240 near
Wisconsin avenue and Grosvenor
lane, through sections of Rock
Creek Park in Montgomery and
some of Chevy Chase to East-
West highway at Beach drive.
Mr. Nye. with the backing of
the politicians, said the southeast
leg project is unnecessary be
cause traffic from Route 240
could be channeled into the Dis
trict over the proposed inter
county belt freeway, which will
connect with existing roads into
the Capital.
The State roads representa
tives firmly insisted such a plan
would destroy the purpose of the
freeway and would not solve the
traffic problem in the area.

Number of 'Cleared' Authors
Is State Department Secret
The State Department will not
say how many contemporary
American authors have been
“cleared” so their books can
be bought for use in its overseas’
libraries.
A spokesman for the depart
ment’s International Information
Administration said the figure
was “not for public information.”
He did indicate, however, that
any author mentioned unfavor
ably by Senator McCarthy, Re
publican, of Wisconsin, would
have to be investigated and
cleared before his books could be
bought for use in the program.
He denied there was any
“blacklist” of authors whose
works could not be purchased
under any circumstances.
Book Buying Drops Off.
But the llA’s book purchases
have dropped off from an average
of 20,623 a month in the 1952
fiscal year to a total of only 1,592
last month—presumably as a re
sult of confusion in clearing au
thors under a Communist ban
and suitability standards.
This information came in re
sponse to questions submitted in
writing by The Star in an effort
to clear up confusion caused by
some conflicting statements
about the book-purchasing pro
gram.
Lawrence Wadsworth, who re
signed recently from a public af
fairs position in the department,
said in a speech here last
Wednesday night that the works
of Judge Learned Hand, the
Rev. A, Powell Davies and of
George Gershwin have not
been cleared for purchase for
the department’s overseas librar
ies.
Several hours after his state
ment appeared in print, the de
partment denied there was any
ban against their works and a
spokesman said there was no in
tention of banning them.
Few Authors Cleared.
At the same time, officials
said privately that only a com
paratively small number of con
temporary writers had been
cleared under the department’s
ban against Communist authors
and its suitability standards.
One official said he would
guess only about 100 had been
cleared. An authorized spokes
man insisted later that this fig
ure was too low, but said at the
Wind—Northwest at 15 miles
per hour tonight and tomorrow.

riod are 78 and 60 for the daily

j time he did not know exactly
how many had been cleared.
Confusion over procedures for
deciding who is a Communist and
evaluating derogatory informa
tion against authors has been
reported as causing a big log
jam in the book-buying program.
Questions Answered.
Among the questions sub
mitted formally to the IIA by
The Star and the answers sub
mitted by an authorized spokes
man today were these:
1. Would a book be judged un
suitable because its author ever
had been mentioned unfavorably
by Senator McCarthy or the
House Un-American Activities
Committee?
Answer: No, *not exclusively
and solely for that reason. This
docs not mean that it would be
passed or not passed.
2. Would such unfavorable
mention bq a factor in judging
the suitability of a book?
Answer: Yes, it certainly
would.
3. Would such unfavorable
mention of the author be suffi
cient to cause such an author’s
book not to be purchased pend
ing an investigation of his rec
ord and evaluation of the in
vestigative reports?
Answer: Yes.
Would Not Go Off Shelves. __
4. Is such unfavorable men
tion sufficient cause to remove
the author’s books from library
shelves where they might be,
pending investigating and eval
uation?
Answer: No.
5. Who or what office makes
the decision on evaluation of
derogatory information con
cerning an author?
Answer: The IIA and its
operating divisions. The final de
cision rests with Administrator
Robert L. Johnson.
6. The works of how many
contemporary, non-official au
thors have been cleared for pur
chase for use in overseas’ li
braries under the ban against
Communist material and on
suitability grounds?
Answer: I can’t answer. That
is not for public information.
It was explained that officials
feared answering such questions
might lead to others about how
many had not been cleared and
eventually get into naming
names.

Money Alone Doesn't Give
Military Security, Kyes Says
By John A. Giles
Deputy Secretary of Defense
Roger Kyes today decried as “un
fortunate” the talk about large
sums of money to give "the feel
ing of security.”
But Senate Democrats declared
open warfare on administration
military spending cuts.
In a speech prepared for de
livery in Chicago, Mr. Kyes as
serted: “The past practice of
leaving the impression with the
people of the United States, that
because large sums of money
have been committed and figures
of great magnitude are used as
targets that they have the feel
ing of security, has been most
unfortunate.”
Unobtainable goals have been
set up in the past for the Air
Force, he declared.
Calls Money Sufficient.
“There is sufficient money
available, so that it will not be
necessary to deduct any combat
planes from previous production
schedules established by the Air
Force before the budget review,”
the second ranking defense ad
ministrator said.
Mr. Kyes and Defense Secre
tary Wilson have been dismayed
by the congressional debate over
their plans and especially the
failure of Republican members to
defend it forcefully. The Kyes
speech today was the first word
from them since their appear
ance before the Senate Military
Appropriations subcommittee last
week which started off the con
gressional criticism.
Representative Price, Demo
crat of Illinois, today called the
plan "an invitation for an en
emy attack” and asked Mr. Wil
son "to give real assurance to the
American people that defense is
the primary objective in cutting
airpower funds.”
In addition to the Air Force
slash of $5 billion, he said, $919,-
314,000 will be trimmed from
naval aviation.
Truman Goal Too High.
Mr. Kyes said the 143-wing
Air Force program set by the
Truman administration the
Eisenhower interim goal is 120
—"was set too high for orderly
achievement in the time avail
able with unfortunate results.
"At the end of March, 1953,
the Air Force has 103 wings, 10
of which had not at the time
been provided with their planned
combat aircraft—an effective
strength somewhat less than had
been planned two years ago, or
Court Hears Attack
On Slum Clearance;
Terminology Argued
By George Beveridge
Southwest Washington’s Area
B redevelopment program was
challenged before a three-judge
court today on grounds that
Congress failed to define ade
quate standards in legislation
authorizing the program.
Verbal by-play over meanings
of such terms as “blight,”
"slums” and “substandard
housing” occupied virtually an
entire Federal court session on
complaints against the program's
constitutionality.
The complaints were filed by
two business property owners in
the 76-acre B area slated for re
development. They are Mrs.
Goldie Schneider, owner of a
hardware store at 716 Fourth
street S.W., and Max R. Morris,
owner of a department store at
712 Fourth street S.W.
Attorney James Toomey ar
gued that the act of Congress
authorizing the program did set
specific standards for slum hous
ing. But he contended it left
Government agencies too much
leeway in determining that large
areas may be torn down and re
built because they are “blighted.”
Mr. Toomey conceded at one
point that he would, within one
set of definitions, agree that the
B Area could be considered a
blighted one. But he argued,
nevertheless, that the law was
unconstitutional in that it would
not restrict the Government
from moving into less question
able areas of the city.

The Air Force, he added, was
“asked to do, and tried to do,
more than they could possibly
accomplish in the time at hand.”
Aircraft research and develop
ment “spilled into production,
resulting in numerous costly
engineering change orders to
correct deficiencies that were the
direct result of insufficient proof
ing or testing,” Mr. Kyes told
the Inland Daily Press Associa
tion.
Mr. Wilson, who returned last
night from Nevada where he
witnessed the atomic gun test,
declined to comment on the
Congressional uproar.
Vandenberg Expects Call.
Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg, Air
Force Chief of Staff, returned a
few minutes later from a tour
of South America and indicated
to reporters he would testify
against the airpower cuts.
He said cautiously he would
have to look over the reduction
“closely” and added, “I imagine
I’ll be called before Congress."
He had been “hopeful” the
administration would apportion
the over-all cuts equally between
the services, he added.
Asked whether he would reply
to a long list of questions about
defense submitted to him last
week by Senator Margaret Chase
Smith, Republican, of Maine, Mr.
Wilson told reporters that when
the Senator “thinks it over she
may not want me to answer some
of her questions.”
Two Democrats for MSA Cut.
Senators Russell of Georgia
and Maybank of South Carolina,
both Democrats, announced they
would vote within the Appropria
tions Committee to cut Mutual
Security Administration funds
while opposing Mr. Wilson’s re
ductions for aviation.
Senator Russell joined other
Senate Democrats in scoffing at
Mr. Wilson’s contention that air
strength will be built up despite
money reductions.
“If Mr. Wilson has found a
magic formula by which he can
cut our plane building program
and still increase our air;
strength, Congress ought to be
told about it.” he said. “If he
can perform such feats of
legerdemain, the logical sequence
would be to cut the Air Force
requests $lO billion and get
twice as much defense.”
sistant United States Attorney
Ross O’Donoghue and Assistant
Corporation Counsel Oliver
Gasch asked that the complaints
be dismissed or that a summary
judgment be issued against them.
It did not appear possible that
a ruling would be returned today.

fear or siedness ?
Most people feel that fear romes when sickness Is
threatening or dangerous. Christian Science shows that
the fear precedes the sickness, and is the controlling
cause of it—even though fear may perhaps be uncon
scious or unspoken. Many thoughtful doctors today
agree that this is so.
Why is it important to understand this fact? Because
Christian Science points out how to eliminate the fear,
and thus the sickness. Study of

Basketball Game Fixer
Is Given Year in Prison
By the Associated Prest
NEW YORK, May 26.—Wil
liam Rivlin was sentenced to a
year in prison today for con
spiracy to fix a 1949 basketball
game in Madison Square Gar

Rivlin, 47, pleaded guilty to
the charge last April 28.
He was the last of 15 persons
indicted as fixers in a sensa
tional probe of college basket
ball.
The game involved in the
charge was played January 1,
1949, between Long Island Uni

of Pittsburgh.
Rivlin was accused of brib
ing Long Island players to
I “shave points” and keep down
the winning margin. Most bas
ketball betting odds are based

margin.
Long Island won the game,

The Federal Spotlight
50,000 Federal Jobs Dropped,
5,600 Here, Commission Says
By Joseph Young
Figures released by the Civil
Service Commission today dis
close that the Eisenhower ad
ministration. in less than four
months, has reduced Federal
employment by 50,000, includ
ing 5,600 jobs in Washington.
Even greater employment re
ductions are in prospect for the
months ahead, since the full
impact of the administration’s
economy program is not yet re
flected in the CSC figures, which
run only through April.
The commission’s figures show
that, as of April 30, there were
2.506,000 Government workers.
This compares with the 2,556,482
employes on the Federal pay
roll when President Eisenhower
took office.
In Washington, there are now
237,800 Federal workers, com
pared to the 243,418 employes
in January.
21,700 Dropped in April.
During April alone, there was
a reduction of 21,700 workers.
In Washington, Federal employ
ment was reduced 3,600 during
that month.
The full brunt of the economy
dismissal program will be felt
during the next five weeks as
agencies trim their payroll in
anticipation of the reduced
budget figures for the new
fiscal year starting July 1.
Thousands of dismissal no
tices are being issued through
out the Government here and
in Federal establishments all
over the country. The reduction
in funds results from the ad
ministration’s downward re
vised budget requests, plus
congressional action in trim
ming these requests even more.
Many of the reductions are
being achieved through attri
tion—not filling vacancies. For
several months, the administra
tion has banned all hiring
except for the most essential
positions. As a result, many
vacancies have not been filled.
However, some direct dismis
sals have still been necessary,
and more will be required in
the months ahead.
Stronger Rights Sought.
Meanwhile, the Civil Service
Commission is working to com
plete its program to give
stronger job-protection rights
to Federal career employes. Un
der the program, displaced
career workers will be able to
“bump” temporary indefinite
employes in other agencies who
are engaged in similar positions.
The bulk of the 50,000 em
ployment cut so far has occurred
in the economic control agencies,
which were wiped out by the
administration, and the various
defense agencies, which have
cut civilian personnel by 3 per
cent.
In addition, sharp budget cuts
by the House has resulted in
layoff notices being prepared by
such units as the Department of

Camalier Indorses
Plan for Parkway
Link to Route 2 40
District Commissioner Renah
F. Camalier last night backed th«
proposed Rock Creek parkway
that would follow the creek's
couse through the District and
tying into Route 240 in Mary
land.
Mr. Camalier thus joined Engi
neer Commissioner Louis W.
Prentiss as a supporter of the
controversial proposal. The third
Commissioner, Samuel Spencer,
has not yet expressed his views.
The Commissioners, as a board,
have indorsed the parkway only
in principle and as an item
among the many city highway
improvements urged by the Re
gional Highway Planning Com
mittee. *
Commissioner Camalier. In a
talk before the Chillum Heights
Citizens’ Association, declared
that unless the parkway artery
is built, downtown Washington
businesses may “dry up.”
