The editorial was entitled "Life Sees, Knows All". The subject matter pertained to a ConVer sation presumed to have taken place between former President Harry Truman and House • h ^j" , , . . .

Each of these reasons sounds about like the usual double talk. the main thing here is" that evidently the small sum of 5.8 millions has been spent on a hospital that will not be used^by the Air Force. Somewhere, back in the plannfng, someone with considerable authority must have thought up from a party. Our editorial wondered how the Time-Life reporting team could possibly know what the two men talked about without being present We are honored by having the editorial appear in the Congressional Record.
