GEN D WIGHT EISENHOWER is back in the U.S. for con
ferences with President Truman and other government officials.
Although the general claimed before he left his SHAPE headquar
ters in France that he didn't know why he was being summoned
to Washington, his official reason was to report on the progress
of the armament program in Europe. However, rumor has it that
the president wants to know if Eisenhower really has political
aspirations so he can begin picking a successor if necessary for
the general's European job.
SPAIN'S GENERAL FRANCO, according to columnist Drew
Pearson, read the riot act to American Maj. Gen. James Spry, who
was in Spain on an inspection of military facilities. The general
was forced to take an hour and a half's tirade from Franco who
thought that the U.S. wasn't fast enough with the ready cash. Ap
parently renigging on bargains made with the late Adm. Forrest
Sherman, Franco now says he is not at all sure Spain wants allied
forces to use her air and naval bases. Franco evidently wants eco
nomic aid first and agreements afterward, but Pearson says Gen

is to help advanced radio students

to other radio students.
In-Service scholarships are

worked at station KFAB in
Omaha. Miss Mellen stated that
during the first three weeks she
was given the opportunity to
work in various radio depart

She spent her first week in the
music library, "pulling" music for
different record shows. Miss
Mellen added that it was during
her filst week that KFAB started
24-hour-a-day broadcasting. The
record librarian was vitally im
portant at that time.
During her, second week in
commercial radio, Jo worked in
the promotion department. She
commented that she spent most of
her time writing station promotion
