I .ke Against
pPension for
Alger Hiss
n WASHINGTON (R) - The White
n House said Wednesday. President
e Eisenhower is against paying any
government pension to Alger Hiss,
sformer State Department official
t who was convicted of falsely deny-
ing he gave secret information to
a Communist spy ring.
James C. Hagerty, presidential
press secretary, stated Eisenhow-
er's position on the matter after
commenting on a series of news
Those stories Tuesday said gen-
erally that the Eisenhower admin-
istration had taken the position
through the Civil Seryice Commis-
sion and the Budget Bureau, the
latter a White House agency, that
the government is obligated to go
through with retirement pay to
federal employes even when they
are imprisoned for criminal acts.
Hiss Eligibility
Hiss will be eligible under pres-
ent law for a pension of $700 a year
at age 62.
As a result of Civil Service Com-
mission and Budget Bureau views
set forth in communications to the
House Civil Service Committee,
Rep. Clardy (R-Mich) declared the
administration attitude "leaves me
aghast, enrated, bdiling mad."
Clardy is author of a bill de-
signed to prevent Hiss from getting
a retirement pension.
Hagerty said he was unable to
understand how anyone could read
the views set forth at the Budget
Bureau and the Civil Service Com-
mission and come to the conclusion
that the administration is opposed
to legislation that would deny Hiss
a pension.
Law Unbelievable
"When I brought these stories to
the attention of the President,"
Hagerty said, "he remarked that'
the existing law seemed unbeliev-
able to one."
Pressed for a specific answer as
to whether the President person-
ally feels that Hiss should not be
paid a pension, Hagerty replied
"yes," that Eisenhower does feel
that way about it.
Hagerty said that in checking
into the background of the news
stories of yesterday, he found that
both the Civil Service Commission
and the Budget Bureau, had "cer-
tain requests from the House Com-
mittee on Post Office and Civil
Service for opinions on bills now
pending before that committee.")
He added:

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (P) - Honduras charged Wednesday
night that Guatemalan aircraft bombed a Honduran airfield Tuesday
and said the government is protesting to the United Nations and the
Organization of American States (OAS).
Guatemala denied the charges.
A Guatemalan government radio broadcast heard in neighboring
Central American countries said meanwhile that, "At 'this very mo-

traditional attitude that education

pose, he said.
Coed Education Trends
The former English professor
pointed out two extremes in edu-
cation today. One trend aims to-
ward preparing women for home-
I making with home economics
courses and child phychology while
the other allows them to enter any
' field which interests them.
Objection to the first trend at
the University center around the
argument that such a course close-
ly predetermines the role of wo-
men in the future.
Women in Professions
President Hatcher indicated that
many of the professional fields
:,closed to women in Queen Victor-

President said.

men no longer must assume the
capacity of a Helen Hokinson her-
oine, he commented, but they may

" room or some other useful occu-
In conclusion, the President ex-
pressed hope that this evolutionary
trend in the role of women in a
"man's world" is still accelerating
rather than diminishing.

Eden Hits
U. S. Policy
In Far East
LONDON (ta - Anthony Eden,
in a speech bristling with criticism
of the United States, called
Wednesday on both the free and
Communist worlds to sign an Asian
pact designed to stop the Indo-
china War and guarantee peace
in Southeast Asia.
Foreign Secretary Eden told the
House of Commons he hoped for a
Locarno-type nonaggression agree-
ment as part of a general settle-
ment at Geneva. He said the free
world could still have a proposed
Southeast Asian setup like the
North Atlantic Treaty Organization
and the Communists could retain
the Soviet-Chinese mutual defense
"I hope we shall be able to agree
to an international guarantee of
any settlement formulated at Gen-
eva," Eden said.
Hits U.S. Policy
Eden's frequent, thinly disguised
slaps at American policy in Indo-
china came on the eve of his de-
parture with Prime M i n i s t e r
Churchill for weekend talks with
President Eisenhower in Washing-
ton. Eden declared:
"My belief is that by refraining
from any precipitate move toward
the formation of a NATO system
in Southeast Asia we have helped
to create thebnecessary conditions
under which both systems can pos-
sibly be brought into being."
Secretary of State Dulles has
favored quick moves to organize a
Southeast Asian military alliance.
Britain has held back, believing
that early action would torpedo any
chance for a settlement in Indo-
china at the Geneva peace confer-
English Go-Ahead
The Churchill government is now
understood to be ready to commit
itself to go ahead after the Geneva
conference closes.
The Locarno Treaty of 1925 com-t
mitted Britain, Germany, France,I
Belgium and Poland to go to thei
help of any signatories whose soil
might be invaded. Churchill hasI
recently suggested a similar ar-(
rangement between Russia and theE

Army To Send GI's
Abroad As Part of Unit

WASHINGTON (R) - The Army,
giving the loriely GI a break, is
planning to send him overseas as
part of a unit with which he has
trained instead of as an individual
drawn from a replacement pool.
The plan, still in course of de-
velopment, will begin operating
next year. It will be substituted
for an overseas replacement pro-
gram which has been used since
the start of the Korean War.
Probably starting at the platoon
level, about 80 men, it is to be
expanded until battalions, 880men.
and regiments, 3,600 men, move
overseas as units.
Two-Fold Proposed
The purpose is two-fold: to in-
crease over-all omha tfficienev:

contained in an Army announce-
ment on steps being taken to im-.
prove career service. The other
plans already have been announced
and some of them are in operation.
In practice, the replacement pro-
gram will involve some of the pro-
cedure used in the recent return of
two divisions from Korea, the 40th
and 45th. Into those divisions were
put all the men whose overseas
service tours of duty were about
to expire. The divisions then were
brought back to the United States
and men either discharged or as-
signed to stateside outfits.
Under the new replacement plan.
men whose overseas duty tours are
completed would be assnmbled
