Child Cast as Gymnast

Following right in her famed
father's footsteps, two-year-old
Christine Loken has taken up the
trampoline-tiny-mite size.
Under the watchful paternal
'eye of University gymnastics
coach Newt Loken, the curly-
headed Chris hasabeen in training
for the past one and a half years.
inCOACH LOKEN began cavort-
ing with his daughter like any
proud parent, swinging her
through the air and bouncing her
on his feet when she was five
months old.
Chris learned to stand on her
father's hands before she could
stand on the ground. But her
gymnastics didn't end there.
For Chris soon learned that
bouncing on the IM trampoline
was more fun than anything, and
she played on it every chance she
got. Wanting to clear the deck
for older tramp fans, her father
built her a small one from canvas,
cut-up innner tubes and leftover

CHRIS PICKED up the basics
of the trampoline quickly -
through observation and practice
-until she now pirouettes, seat
drops and flies through the air
like an old trouper.
"I never expected our play
sessions would lead to this,"
Coach Loken said. "Friends
who've seen our practice are
asking for stunts to do with
their own children."
Holding her own off the mat as
well as on, Chris walks with the
sturdiness of a six-year-old and
has managed to climb onto the
tramp herself when the Coach
isn't around.
"I'VE CONFINED her gymnas-
tics to simple stunts," he said.
"She could keep on playing in-'
definitely, and likes to watch the!
boys perform to pick up pointers."

The meeting of the revamped

25 years enough
Pollock Hits Pa ie
The Hoover Commission's plea
for an overhauling of the U.S.
Civil Service in a government re-
organization report last night
brought a strong dissent from
James K. Pollock, chairman of
the political science department
at the University.
The Commission's proposal,
which urges that the Civil Service
Commission be reduced to a pol-
icy making body with individual
agencies free to select their own
employes at the same time out-
law political favoritism and res-
cue the civil service from "red
tape without end," is not thor-
ough-going enough and should go
further in revising civil service,
Pollock told a Daily reporter last
tion of a central personnel agen-
cy under one director. The Com-
mission's report, he said, mini-
mizes the shortcomings of the
civil service system.
Pollock suggested that the
Civil Service Commission be
changed to an advisory board
to work with the stronger agen-
cies in developing personnel
programs suitable to their
varying needs.
The whole concept of person-
nel management should be modi-
fied to de-emphasize "legastic,
procedural, paper - processing
techniques" and concern itself
with the people, he said, provid-
ing motivation, incentives and
moralemrather than concern over
refinements of written examina-
tions, pay plans and service rat-
The report issued last night by
the Hoover Commission recom-
mended in part: centering all the
administrative duties of the Civil
Service Commission in its chair-
man and openng new training and
promotion opportunities for fed-
eral workers as a means of creat-
ing a career service that will at-
tract and hold persons o the

Senator Ready
To Quit When
Term Expires
Veteran Republican
Gives Age as Reason.
DETROIT-(P; -Sen. Vanden-
berg (Rep,, Mich,), one of the
most powerful Republicans in
Congress, said yesterday that he
would quit public life "completely"
in 1952.
His current Senate term ends
then. He will have served 25 years
in his post.
* * *
"AT THAT TIME I will be 68"
Vandenberg said, "and I will have
had 25 years in the United States
Senate. I think that is enough."
In the postwar years, he
gained stature as foreign policy
spokesman for the Republai,.
Party. His friends often insstedt
that he might have been Pres-
ident of the United States if he
had tried harder.
Vandenberg declined the Re-
publican Vice Presidential nomi-

tion in 1936. The late Frank Knox
was nominated and waged a los-

HE LEFT the newspaper bus-

late Woodbridge N. Ferris. He was
elected to his first full term in

1940 and 1946.
After his retirement in 1952, the
white-haired statesman said that
he would devote his time to writ-
Befo'e the war, Vandenberg
was looked upon as an isola-
tionist opposed to the Roose-
vet Administration's foreign
policy. In a dramatic switch,
however, he later assumed the
leadership of his party's pro-
gressive foreign policy forces.
He helped write the United Na-
tions Charter and became a poW-
erful voice in international af-
fairs. He led the GOP into the
bi-partisan foreign policy rela-
tionship with President Truman
after the war.
In the 80th Congress, Vanden-
berg was president pro tempore
or the Senate, and in the absence
of a Vice' President, his position
corresponded to that office. He
also was chairman of the Sen-
ate's foreign policy committee.
The Democratic victory last No-
vemnber threw him out of both of
these jobs and since then he took
the position of minority leader in
the Senate.
