Ike's Choice Gets
ate voted resounding approval late
yesterday for President Eisenhow-
er's choice of Charles E. (Chip)
Bohlen to be ambassador to Rus-
Amounting to a vote of confi-
dence in the President, the tally
came exactly one month after he
submitted the nomination.

ON A ROLL call, 74 senators
voted to confirm the nomination
and 13 voted against it.
Both Michigan Senators-Fer-
guson and Potter, Republicans
-voted for Bohlen. They said
in advance that they would vote
for him, though reluctantly.
Bohlen, 48-year-old career dip-
limat and Russian-language ex-
pert, was under bitter attack dur-
ing the month-long interval from
Bridges, McCarthy, MCarran and
* * *w
QUESTIONS were raised about
him on loyalty and security
grounds. Secretary of State John
Foster Dulles said an FBI investi-
gation had turned up nothing to
cast doubt on his loyalty.
Taft, of Ohio, the Republican
leader, and Sparkman, of Ala-
bama, 1952 Democratic vice pres-
idential nominee, upheld Dulles'
findings in a separate inspection
of the FBI's report.
Bohlen's critics also contended
he had been too closely identi-
fied with foreign policies of Dem-
ocratic President Harry Truman
and Dean Acheson, secretary of
state in the Truman Administra-
They also criticized his presence
at Yalta when the late President
Franklin D. Roosevelt made con-
cessions to Russia in the Far East
and secured a Russian agreement
to enter the war against Japan.
Bohlen has said he was there
only as an interpreter.
In the end, President Eisenhower
made the appointment a matte
of presidential prestige by declar-
ing that Bohlen was his own per-
sonal choice and the best quali-
fied man for the post.

Local commentators agreed yes-

ventions in Detroit lay outside the
jurisdiction of the House Govern-
ment Operations Committee.
Committee chairman Rep. Clare

probe yesterday reportedly because
it did not meet with the approval
of House leaders. Hoffman said
both the Democratic and Republi-
can leadership believed his com-
mittee lacked the jurisdiction to

Roberts resigned under fire yester-
day as Republican National Chair-

a "carefully contrived" political
plot in Kansas.
President Eisenhower called the
resignation a "wise decision."

ROBERTS quit his $32,500 a
year post shortly after a Kansas
legislative investigating commit-

letter of resignation to the GOP

that "CIO goon squads usurped
