Cycling Honeymoon Follows
Wedding Deep in Caverns
A year ago, an Alexandria
man popped the question to his
girl down in the depths of the
Shenandoah Caverns.
She said yes.
So on Saturday, the two
hopped on motorcycles and
headed for the Blue Ridge
Mountains. There they were
married in the same spot where
the proposal was made—then
were off on their honeymoon—
aboard motorcycles.

Gen. Dean Due Here
Today for Talks and
Physical Checkup
By John A. Giles
Maj. Gen. William F. Dean was
scheduled to arrive here today
for conferences with Gen. Mat
thew B. Ridgway, Army Chief of
Staff, and a physical examination
at Walter Reed General Hospital.
The highest ranking Korean
war repatriate apparently has no
plan to retire from active duty as
he is eligible to do after 30 years’
service and as he formerly stated
he planned.
In Berkeley, Calif., yesterday
he told reporters “I’m not an old
ton last night, Mr. Dalton called
his plan a modification of the
“pay-as-you-go” idea and said
the only alternative is increasing
the gas tax. He said he believes
Virginians are opposed to that.
Mr. Dalton’s plan is to have
the State Highway Commission
issue “special construction rev
enue obligations” to a total of
not more than SIOO million in
the next five years.—AP.

Ridgway Heads Welcome.
Gen. Ridgway, who was to lead

go over these plans with Gen.
Dean on his visit here.
The department has tentatively
i planned to assign him as deputy

with headquarters in San Fran

plans might be changed.
It also was pointed out that

Officer Who Seized
Greenlease Kidnaper
Suffers Breakdown
By lha Associated Press
ST. LOUIS, Oct. 20.—Lt. Louis
Shoulders, the policeman who
arrested the killer of 6-year-old
Bobby Greenlease and who is
central figure in a closed-door
inquiry into police handling of
the case, was reported by his
physician today to be suffering
from a nervous breakdown.
Dr. Charles M. Bauman, who
made the announcement, said
it would be at least several days
before Lt. Shoulders can be
questioned in the investigation.
The inquiry, which began yes
terday before Police Chief Jere
miah O’Connell, stemmed from
reports that the FBI has found
discrepancies in police accounts
of the arrest. It centers around
the handling by police of two
suitcases in which nearly half
of the $600,000 ransom payment
was recovered.
Can’t Be Questioned Now.
Dr. Bauman said he doesn’t
know when Lt. Shoulders will be
in a condition to permit ques
tioning. “It’s not going to be to
day or tomorrow,” the physician
Patrolman Elmer Dolan, Lt.
Shoulders’ partner in the arrest
two weeks ago of Carl Austin
Hall, was questioned periodically
for 10 hours yesterday in the
police chief's office and then was
returned to duty.
Lt. Shoulders is under treat
ment at his home.
But Chief O’Connell said Lt.
Shoulders will be questioned “as
soon as his doctor says it will
be all right to do so.”
Woman Says She Wants to Die.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Bonnie Brown
Heady, Hall’s companion in the
kidnaping of the Greenlease boy,
was quoted as saying in Kan
sas City:
“The only thing I want to do
now is die in the gas chamber
with Carl.”
A police officer, who declined
use of his name, also quoted Mrs.
Heady, a 41-year-old divorcee,
as saying she wanted to be bur
ied in a cemetery near Clear
mont, Mo., where she was born.
She and Hall are held in the
Jackson County Jail at Kansas
City under Federal kidnaping
charges. They were arrested in
St. Louis a week after the kid

The Federal Spotlight
Action on Retirement System
Expected in Next Congress
By Joseph Young
The special Congressional-appointed committee studying the
Government's retirement system has promised that the major
portion of its report and recommendations will be submitted to
Congress by the end of this year.
This has great significance for Federal employes. For if the
major proposals are in the hands
of Congress when it convenes
next January, will be a
hip insurance flpfgg>
month or so I
group would ®
be able to
submit its report before June.
This would have precluded any
action by Congress until 1955.
However, the committee has
mate great strides in its work
and expects to have the major
data ready by the end of this
year. Headed by Eliot Kaplan,
New York attorney and civil
service expert, the group also
includes the Secretaries of De
fense and Treasury, the chair
man of the Civil Service Com
mission, the Budget Bureau di
rector and the chairman of the
Board of Governors of the Fed
eral Reserve Board.

PAY—The drive for Congres
sional enactment next year of a
Federal pay raise will be drama
tized on the steps of Capitol Hill
The executive board members
of the United National Associa- ;
tion of Post Office Clerks will
assemble on the steps of the
Capitol to display a giant peti- j
tion banner calling on Presi-1
dent Eisenhower and Congress
to support a pay boost for postal
and classified workers.
Meanwhile, Senator Johnston,*
Democrat, of South Carolina, top
minority member of the Senate
Civil Service Committee, has in
vited Chairman Carlson of the
group to co-sponsor a Federal
pay raise measure with him next
Senator Johnston declared that
classified and postal workers are
entitled to a pay boost to cope
with the rise in the cost of
living. Senator Carlson, who is
out of town, was not available
for immediate comment. How
ever. he had asked the Civil
Service Commission previously to
make a study of the Federal
wage situation and make a re
port to his committe by the first
of next year.

Philip Young of the Civil Service
Commission was engaging in no
guess work yesterday- when he ;
said the reduction in Federal
jobs here between now and next
June 30 will be only 4,700 and
that most of this will be ac
complished by.not filling normal
> -
personnel vacancies. Direct fir
ings will not be necessary, he
The estimate was based on an
exhaustive survey made during
the past month by the CSC and
the Budget Bureau. It repre
sents the administration’s official
planning on Federal employment
for the next 10 months.
In his speech to the Mer
chants’ and Manufacturers’ As
sociation, Mr. Young reiterated
that career workers have nothing
to fear regarding their jobs. He
also said that most indefinite
workers are safe.

From the conversations we had
with employes—and there are
250,000 Government workers in
California, compared with 230,-
000 in the Washington area.—the
workers there are disturbed over
recent developments concerning
their jobs, but not on the scale
Federal employes here are.
The job cuts of the past six
months have not been too se
verely felt in the field service,
since they were scattered and
j not concentrated in any one
place such as Washington.
However, field employes are a
• little uneasy and upset over the
actions of some of the new de
partment and agency officials,
i They still have great confidence
lin President Eisenhower, and
they also like CSC Chairman
Philip Young, who made an ex
| cellent impression on West Coast
employes during his recent trip
But they are puzzled and re
sentful over the statements and
actions of some of the new Re
publican agency officials.
The majority of these employes
probably voted Republican in the
last election. We base this on the
conversations we had with many
West Coast Federal employes a
year ago September, when we
were in San Francisco covering
one of the employe union conven
tions. At that time, the majority
of the employes candidly said
they were going to vote Repub
In view of all this, they can’t
understand why some of the new

the attitude that Federal em
ployes were all a bunch of Demo
crats. They also point to the Re
publican vote last November in
nearby Maryland and Virginia
counties, heavily populated by
Federal workers.
The Federal employes on the
West Coast seem more angry
than afraid. They do have a
greater degree of independence
than Federal workers in Wash
ington, since they live in areas
that do not depend on the Fed
eral Government for their main
economic existence. Therefore,
the feeling among employes is
that, if things get too rough,
they can always quit and take
their chances in private industry.
As for Federal job opportuni
ties on the West Coast, only
specialists are needed. Engineers,
scientists, physicists, machinists
and various such professions and
skills are somewhat in demand.
But the situation regarding cler
ical job 6 as well as administra
tive and run-of-the-mille posi
tions is about the same as in
Washington. There are very few
job opportunities in these fields.

These 1,500-horsepower loco

In addition, seven self-con

Only the Washingtonian, operat
