Ireland's De Valera
Faces Another Election
By CHARLES M. MCCANN
United Press Staff Correspondent
The big question in the minds of
the voters in Tuesday's parliamen-
tary election in Ireland is whether
"Dev" will make It again.
Lanky, gaunt, fiercely partisan
Prime Minister Eamon De Valera
has been head of the government
for all but three years since 1932.
He has been a leader in Irish
politics since the Easter rebellion
But now De Valera is 71. His
eye-sight is failing. He has under-
gone several operations. Members
of his staff read reports and new
papers to him.
Could Be End
They say in Ireland that if
"Dev" loses it may mean the end
of the political road for him.
De Valera resigned in March aft-
er his "soldiers of destiny" party
—Fianna Fail in Irish—failed to
win two seats in by-elections. The
opposition united Ireland party
(Fine Gael) kept the seats by in-
De Valera had only 72 seats in
parliament out of 147. The support
of two independents gave him a
majority of two. But he was al-
ways in danger of defeat and de-
cided to call an election, though
his term would not have expired
There are no foreign issues in
Tuesday's election. The domestic
issues are not sharply drawn. De
Valera believes in government in-
vestment and pump priming as a
means long-range industrial and
agricultural development. Fine
Gael calls for lower taxes and
says De Valera has increased the
cost of living.
The election really boils down
to the one issue whether the voter
is for "Dev" or against him.
"Dev" was born in New York
on the site of the present Chrysler
building. He is the son of a Spanish
father and an Irish mother. He
was taken to Ireland in his child-
hood, after his father died.
A brilliant student, De Valera
became a mathematics teacher.
But from his youth he took an

active part in the Irish independ-
ence movement. He led volunteers
in the Easter rebellion. He was
sentenced to death but reprieved
and then released.
He was president of the so-called
"Irish Republic" during the rebel-

gave Ireland limited independ-
De Valera i .'i'.sed to accept the
treaty. A civil war followed. The
free state government won out. De
Valera finally formed the Fianna
Fail party and went into parlia-
ment in 1927. He became head of
the government in 1932. He lost
out in 1948 only to be returned to
the prime ministry in 1951.

The country's largest business-

Its purpose is to get Mexican

A spokesman for the confedera-

Mexico's dollar reserves through
purchases in U.S. border towns.
Mexicans living in border areas

their purchases in U.S. cities. It is
believed the "Buy Mexican" cam-

devaluation, will discourage those

"Goodness," said Mrs. Roden.
"This is supposed to be a fancy
hotel in a fancy town. And look
at the pipes! The faucets they have
in this hotel are worse than the
ones we used to have on the farm
back in Iowa many years ago. The

President Ramon R. Magsaysay
of the Philippines has won a big
personal victory in the surrender
of Luis M. Taruc, "supremo" of
the Communist - led liukbalahap
Communism in East Asia has
suffered a correspondingly big de-
Magsaysay set out four years
ago, when he was named secre-
tary of defense, to smash the
"Huks" who had kept the Philip-
pines in turmoil ever since the end
of World War II.
Taruc's surrender to the govern-
ment Monday means that Magsay-
say has just about accomplished
his aim. He already had reduced
the Huks to a disorganized guer-
Blow to Communists
The surrender is a blow to the
prestige of the Communist move-
ment not only in the Philippines but
in the Far West generally.
If Taruc talks, it could become
a blow to Communism in more
Taruc could tell how Soviet Rus-
sia and Red China supply the
Huks. He could give clues at least
to the way Communist supply lines
are maintained to such areas as
Indonesia, Japan and the Amer-
ican base on Okinawa.
Taruc has been the "supremo,"
the commander in chief, of the
Hukbalahap movement since its or-
ganization in 1942. It was formed
to fight the Japanese. Like some
other partisan movements, it was
Communist-led. After the war it
turned against the government.
In 1950, when Magsaysay took
over as defense secretary, the Iluk
army numbered 40,000 men. It had
an estimated 100,000 active sup-
porters. It controlled some areas
of Luzon, the principal island, and
was even a threat to Manila.
Magsaysay changed all that. He
reorganized the corrupt army and
police. Within two years he re-
duced the Iluk army to 4,000 men.
But there was still corruption in
the government, and Magsaysay
resigned in disgust early in 1953.
He was made a candidate for
president on a coalition ticket and
won an impressive victory.
Energy is Unflagging
Magsaysay's name is pronounced
mog-sigh-sigh. He is 46. He is big
for a Filipino—5 feet 10 inches tall,
175 husky pounds. His energy is
unflagging. He was educated to
be an engineer. He enlisted in the
American army when the Pacific
war broke out and took to the hills
as a guerrilla when Bataan fell.
After the war he was elected tu
congress. He soon won a name in
a corrupt political set-up as an
absolutely honest man, and one
who was" ready to fight dishonesty
wherever lie found it.
In 1950, the United States de-
manded that a really honest man
be put in charge of the fight
against the Huks. Magsaysay was
chosen defense secretary. He
moved at once against the rebels.
He used every means. He fought
the guerrillas with guerilla tac-
tics. He even used to go out alone
at night at risk of assassination to
talk to Huks who he thought might
be won over. Now the No. 1 Red
has surrendered to him.
May Decide Fate
Of Farm Program
WASHINGTON, May 17—UP -
The fate of President Eisenhower's
farm program in the Senate Agri-
culture committee hinged Saturday
on the selection of a senator to
fill the committee vacancy left by
the death of Sen. Clyde M. Hoey
Informed sources said Hoey's
death last Wednesday left the com-
mittee split seven-to-seven over the
administration proposal to supplant
present high farm price supports
with a flexible and generally lower
support scale for major crops.
Hoey had opposed the plan.
Informants said supporters of the
administration plan are "pulling
every wire they can" in an effort
to fill the vacancy with a Demo-
cratic senator sympathetic to the
flexible support concept.
But Senate Democratic leaders,
who have the final say on the
appointment, were reported to be
leaning towards selection of Sen.
Hubert II. Humphrey (D-Minn), a
high-level support man who would
tip the balance against the admin-
Humphrey once served on the
committee but left it last year for a
post on the Foreign Relations com-
mittee. He is on record in favor
of continuing the current program
under which the government guar-
antees support of basic crops at
90 per cent of the "fair income"
Hoey had taken the same stand,
giving opponents of the administra-
tion's flexible plan an eight-seven
edge, according to a committee
