'In' as Sheriff
Mrs. Hardy Sweeps into Registrar
Of Deeds Post; Sallade Far Ahead
Mrs. Patricia Hardy and Irwin Kager appeared to have safe
leads in their bids for offices of county Register of Deeds and Sheriff
when The Daily went to press at 2 a.m. this morning.
The six-man battle for the Republican nomination for sheriff
see-sawed back and forth between Kager and George Fitzgerald as
early returns came in, but by 2 a.m. with 44 out of 56 precincts re-
porting KMager had built up a lead of over 550 votes.
Four other aspirants for the office of sheriff were Jack J. Koenke,
Herman Oltersdorf, Harold E. Swoverland and Robert W. Winnick.
Mrs. Hardy took an early lead in the hotly contested race for
WASHINGTON (A-Rep. W. Ster-
ling Cole (R-NY) announced Tues-
day that Senate and House con
ferees have agreed to a compro-
mise solution of a bitter contro-
versy over how far the govern-
ment may go in development of
commercial atomic power.
The compromise was acceptec
by "general agreement" but no
unanimously, Cole said, as part of
adjustments of differing Senat
and House versions of a broad new
atomic energy program. The re.
vised bill to open atomic energy
to private industry and to wider
the international exchange of in-
formation goes back to both houses
for final action.
Under the compromise, Cole told
newsmen, the Atomic Energy Com-
mission would be authorized tc
build large-scale atomic p o w e i
plants for experimental purposes
only and would be barred from
getting directly into commercial
Spower. But it could sell the elec-
tricity from its experimental plants
with preference "insofar as prac-
ticable" to cooperatives and pub-
The measure also would specify
that other government agencies
could apply for licenses to build
nuclear power plants.
This would replace a Senate-ap-
proved amendment, by Sen. Ed-

agencies to enter the commercial
power field, if they can get funds

After a study of 40 non-Euro-

women equal or superior positions
because of their sex.

Air Force Given
WASHINGTON (Ri - The scat-
tered air defenses of the United
States will be placed under one
central authority in September
with the establishment of the Con-
tinental Air Defense Command,
the Pentagon announced Tuesday.
The decision was reached by the
administration after a long study
and argument within and without
the military services. For the first
time it gives the Air Force pri-
mary authority as well as respons-
ibility for directing the activity of
some 2,000 jet fighters, the Army's
growing system of "nike" antiair-
craft missiles and all of the ships
and aircraft operating far at sea
that will be tiedsinto a central
warning and defense system.
Chidlaw To Command
Gen. Benjamin W. Chidlaw will
be commander-in-chief of the con-
tinental d e f e n s e headquarters
while retaining his responsibility
for the Air Defense Command of
the Air Force. Working directly
under' and with him will be Lt.
Gen. John Lewis, chief of the
Army's anti-aircraft command,
many of whose 100 plus battalions
are earmarked for last ditch de-
fense of the nation's big cities and
The Navy will also be repre-
sented in the continental com-
mand by an admiral still to be
selected. This flag officer, who
will be directly responsible to
Chidlaw, will have immediate su-
pervision of the Navy's air and
surface craft assigned to the job
of spotting any enemy trying to
sneak across the oceans.
Secretary of Defense Wilson said
in announcing the big new com-
mand that the advent of new
weapons and increased forces
made central direction advisable.
Wilson said also that additional
wings of interceptor planes will
soon be available for defense of
the homeland and that new ad-
vances in electronic detection and
missiles should be taken advan-
tage of rapidly by the unified com-
Gen. Chidlaw's air defense com-
mand already consists of about
25 wings equipped with some 2,000
jet fighter interceptors. Faster jet
planes are already in production
and willrbe joining this force not
many months hence.
The new command will also be
able to co'unt on the Air National
Guard's 21 squadrons. They now
number some 1,500 aircraft, some
of which are old style piston en-
gine fighters. But the guard is
steadily being converted to an all-
WASHINGTON (R-Secretary of
Defense Wilson said Tuesday that
if America had to go to war now
the military r e s e r v e situation
"would be a scandal."
Therefore, he said at a Penta-
gon news conference, the adminis-
tration has worked up a reserve
program based on compulsory
service and "in a broad sense its
principles have been approved."
Wilson's statement was the third
in a go-around which began 'last
week. His retiring assistant secre-
tary for manpower, John A. Han-
nah, told then of a new military
manpower plan aimed at military
duty for "all qualified young men,"
followed by compulsory service in
a new reserve set-up.
Hannah said, "the whole thing is
geared to the day of active war
with the Soviet Union" and °had
been approved by the National Se-
Monday, White House Press
Secretary James C. Hagerty said
BERLIN (U)--The East Ger-
man Communist regime an-
nounced Tuesday night wide-
spread arrests of alleged Amer-
ican and West German agents
operating in the Soviet zone.
The arrests were announced
just two weeks after the for-
mer chief of West Germany's
Internal Security Service, Dr.
Otto John, crossed to Com-
munist East Berlrin.
Since John's defection, Al-
lied and West German officials
have feared such wholesale ar-
rests of East Germans who
regularly send out vital infor-
mation from the Russian zone.
The 44-year-old John. who
was for almost four years head
of West Germany's security of-
fice, knew the identities of
hundreds of such persons.
East German Interior Min-
ister Willi Stoph, who an-
nounced the arrests, did not
give the total.
