Klan Case Discloses Lax Political Morals PERHAPS the most discouraging thing about the case of 1 Justice Hugo Black and the Ku Klux Klan is its revelation of the defective standard of public morality current among politicians. A senator of considerable service and distinction, Mr. Black is nominated to the Supreme Court and duly confirmed. 'Then comes the charge that he was, and still is, a qualified member of the Klan. Immediately a whole host of brother politicians come fonvard*to give testimony on the case, pro and con; and in all of their talk you can notice one particular thing. They joined the Klan, many of these men, not because they believed in it or felt that its policies and ideals were sound. but simply because it looked like the politic thing to do; and they assume that Mr. Black joined it, if he did join it, for the same reason. XXX THAT is to say that according to the prevailing code in pol- 1 rtics, a candidate for office may join any group under the sun and subscribe to the most fantastic of creeds without actually committing himself to anything, if he has reason to believe that a fairly substantial block of his constituents are interested. It is taken for granted that he will do such things with his fingers crossed; that his "oath of allegiance," if he gives it.to a fraternity, club or political group, means nothing more than a vague gesture of good will. .. It is precisely this widespread acceptance of a lax, easy- .going way of dealing with things which ought to be matters of definite conSviction that is so discouraging. Now the Klan, in the days when it had its health, advocated a most rigid and uncompromising set of principles. No man could be neutral about it. You either believed in the things the Klan advocated or you actively disbelieved in them. If you were a man of honor—as non-politicians understand the word—you could not conceivably pretend to believe in them when you actually did not believe. XXX •A LL of which makes some of these politicians' remarks about 4\ the Black case almost incredible. Why, they say, if Black joined the Klan. he did it just because everybody was doing it; hje .didn't believe in the Klan's program—in fact, he was a g$od friend" to the Catholics and Jew^-in his state. We all jotted ffje Klan in those days, and it didn't mean a thing. •-;• -Which is where they are wrong. It did mean something, ft-meant that in the world of politics we have developed a moral code which would shame a Botany Bay exile; that the men who make a profession of seeking and holding public office have built up an atmosphere in which the very nature of truth and simple decency get lost to view. That such an atmosphere exists is even more disharten- ing than the prospect that we may get a Supreme Court .justice who holds a passport in the Invisible Empire. Alien Teapot Tempest A WASHINGTON correspondent recently remarked that /i Congress is not likely to get very excited over the recent exposure- of Nazi organizational activities in the United States. Twice in the last seven years Congress has investigated propaganda activities of foreign groups, and neither time did its own findings stir it to enact any sort of remedial legislation. The congressmen just don't seem to think that these activities really menace the country much. : 'In that stand Congress is probably quite right. The ordinary citizen unquestionably hates to read of active groups which take their orders and draw their inspiration from Rome, Moscow or Berlin; he is apt to forget that such groups cut very little figure in our national life. After all, there are 130,000,000 people in the United tates. If ten or twenty thousand of them go haywire on Hitler, Stalin or Mussolini, it doesn't really make very much difference.

Some Typical First Signs of Cancer Growth Involving the Skin and Mouth This is the llth of a series in which Dr. Morris Fishbein discusses cancer, Us causes and measures for prevention and cure. By Olive Roberts Barton Hunger's Stagefright The other day I was having lunch in one of our big department stores, that serves a special menu for children. Next to me sat a mother with her small son of five or six. I was nebby enough to see what he got, and it was splendid food. Moreover the glass, the soup dish and his plate were adorned with small animals, enough to tempt the appetite of any youngster. But he ate sparingly of everything. Good as gold, he wasn't hungry. Then came a nice dessert of chocolate ice cream. This he only played with. Came the storm. Mother said impatiently, "If .you don't eat your ice cream I will never bring you with me again. You have wasted_most of your food and it's a perfect shame. Now you get to work and eat every bite of it." 'Sim didn't. He couldn't. Something was wrong? What? Hither he was tired or excited Maybe he was going to a movie aftei lunch. I don't know. But one thinf, was sure. It wasn't thc last time his mother would bring him along, and she may as well have saved her breath Unpredictable in Behavior Children are always unpredictable You never can tell what they will do But whenever I have taken a child to a public place to dine, I have had exactly the same experience as this indignant lady. You pay your fifty cents or dollar for their food, and you want your money's worth, naturally But they just won't eat. Out goes the turkey, or noodles, or ice cream with scarcely a dent in them.

The Utah newspapers, she felt sure, led the case definitely away from Jim Kerrigan, for it proved that someone in the house was implicated. A sudden realization halted her train of thought abruptly. However, had she neglected to consider it before? Mr. Johnson was the one person in the house who had papers to be explained. Apparently they cleared the superintendent, as they cleared Jim, of any connection with Amy's death. I diately. The funeral service for Amy Kerr was scheduled for two o'clock, so when 12:30 arrived nnd Sergeant Dolan had not put in his appearance, Cilly relinquished the hope of seeing him. She went into the bedroom to change into the dull black dress. It might be that the sergeant would stop at the funeral parlors, if only to look over the friends and acquaintances assembled. Through the window, Cilly saw a taxi draw up to the house and stop in front of her window. She hurried across the room to pull down the shade. Vaguely she was conscious that the car's motor continued to run as she combed her hair and changed her dress. Someone in the house must have called and asked him to wait. Few people from the apartment ever phoned for a taxi; it was easier to walk down services. It was almost 1:30 when thc driver finally drew up to the curb. She got into his car imme- the opportunity crime' to commit the He had every reason to h» up on * he rooi at midnight, if only to °' J to the corner the regular and hail one from ./to, id.

A woman was (No. 332) j Since the possibility of cure of a cancer depends on recognizing the condition at the earliest possible mo- ! ment, an exact knowledge of the na- j ture of cancer is exceedingly important, j Cancers are of many different types,, depending on the tissues which they! affect. Moreover, cancer of any sin-1 gle tissue may vary. For example, a cancer of the skin may involve the hair follicles, the sweat glands or the! surface of the skin. Each of these | types differs from the others. The cancers of various lypes differ in the speed with which, they grow. A cancer on the skin usually begins with a small elevated area which is sensitive to the touch and yellowish or brownish in color. A scab forms and when this is pulled off, the skin under the scab bleeds. Then a new crust will form and if this is pulled off, another crust will develop. Each time, however, the crust gets thicker, the growth covers a larger area and gets harder. Instead of healing like "lost slight wounds of the skin, this one keeps on getting worae. Moat oft«n tumors of the skin occur on the face. Sometimes they affect the lips, the mouth, the inside of the cheek or the gums. A cancer affecting the tongue may kill a person in six months, whereas one on the hands may be controlled with more ease. The first sign of cancer of the mouth j is a pearly, elevated or warty spot on the lips or gums which does not heal and day after day persists as a crust or an ulcer. Any sore in the mouth which persists as long as two weeks should have the attention of a physician. Women are far less likely to die of cancer of the skin than are men simp- j ly because they are much more con- I cerned with their appearance than are j men in general. The woman is far' more likely to be disturbed about a' growth on the skin which fails to heal, i Cancers of the skin may follow many | different types of irritation. Thus they i have followed excessive irritationftjat the bridge of the nose because of the j rubbing by spectacles that are not fit- i ted satisfactorily. j They have developed in scars which j resulted from burns or from other j of his literature on insanity.

As he started off, Cilly started conversation. "Quite busy this nrternoon, aren't you?" she inquired. "Yeah, I am. Were yiu waiting long?" "Almost half an hour." "I'm sorry, miss. I've been gone from the stand almost 40 minutes. Had to take n woman all the way down to the Atlantic- Avenue Station." "That's the Long Islam Railroad, isn't it?" Yeah. She was in a hurry to catch a train. Going out on the Island somewhere, I guuss." Cilly felt a vagiu- disappointment.

What horrible, distorted ideas ran through his simple mind a.s he slowly and painstakingly worked out paragraph after paragraph? However, in spite of Mr. Johnson's curious literary tastes, there was still the matter of the news- disappear around the corner, annoyed at her own stupidity in letting the woman get away so smoothly. A few minutes later? she was standing at the taxi stand on the corner, waiting for the same cab to return. She waited several minutes, growing'a little nervous lust she bi.- late for the funeral i4"TVID the woman come from the •^ Bayview Apartments?" Cilly pursued, nevertheless. "I thought I saw you pick up a fare there." "That's riKht," the driver agreed affably. "She came from the samo house where that girl was murdered ..." Cilly leaned forward in the ear. ''The police will probably be asking you about it," she; commented cautiously. "I don't think they would have permitted any of the tenants to go away until they found out who killed the girl." The taxi driver's eyes popped. "Joes!" he murmured. "I never thought of that. Say, she might 'a been runnin' away, huh?" "She might have been. Do you remember who she was?" "Sure! She phoned for me. Send a cab,' .she says, 'right away —Bayview Apartments. You can ing my bell for me ... Apartment 4-B.' So I go over and ring 4-B, and she's down in a minute, with her bags. Jees! 1 never .nought ..." Apartment 4-B. That was Mrs. Wheeler, the widow. Mrs. Wheeler, who lived alone, and saw nobody escape after the murder. Mrs. Wheeler had deliberately run away from Sergeant Dolan's questions. Why? Cilly thought of something else. Mrs. Wheeler might have thro\vn away those Utah newspapers. She, too, might have let the murderer hide out in her apartment until the excitement had died down. . ,, (To lie Contumcil) worry me. It iloe.sn'1 now?

Before they enter the dining room, mother says. "Now. children, watch your manners. Don't spill your water and sit up straight. Keep your napkin on your lap nnd keep quiet." During the meal she is reaching over to correct the way they hold forks pulling plates closer so they won't spot the cloth, keeping an eagle eye on everything they do. 'She i.s under a strain and so are they. It all comes back to feeling at home and happy when you eat.

Off. a Pay By Bruce Catton Kindlier Conception of Anron Burr Brilliant lawyer who never lost a case. Gallant soldier of the Revolution. Attorney general, United Suites senator, vice president—almost President. Visionary who dreamed of a vast American empire and of himself a.s meperor. Such was the man presented in Nathan Schachner's new biography. "Aaron Burr" Stokes, S3.50). Here is a definitive biography based in a (Treat part on manuscript material which had never been published. It is a long book, fully documented, containing evidence which sheds new light cm this incredible character. Today, observes Mr. Schachner. Burr is known chiefly by the epithets of those who hated him. It is time that some of the old prejudices and misconceptions be cleared up. "The.' tumult is over, the hatreds are dying," the author remarks. "And Burr is slowly regaining his rightful place and niche in time. He was not all greatness, not all fault. . . . Treason has been placed at his door; and treachery to Jefferson; yet both charges do not survive the cold light of the '. documents." | In all Burr's life, Schachner con-1 tends, there were but two incidents that merit complete censure—his negotiations with Merry and Yrujo and the doubtful ethics of the Holland Land company connections while in the leg- slature. "Yes." argues his biographer, 'these were small enough compared to the vast texture of his career." Mr. Schachner may draw backfire "Just keep your motor running, driver—I'll he hack as soon as I snitch n couple of apples." tl I Holivv Studio Pays Him to Produce Cold Facts on Film Figures HOLLYWOOD. — There are movie posing.

O. Ceccarini. To him, Greta Garbo is just a lot of light vibrations, Jeanette MacDonald a certain number of sound frequencies. Thc finest piece of dramatic acting ever done by Gladys Goerge may move him only to thc working of a problem in referential calculus. ... . . I can't tell you in much detail about J L'J'^f t ,?.. : .!" y the things that Signor Ceccarini does, , and if I could it would bore you. But j for 10 years he has been chief consult- I ing engineer at Metro-Goldwyn-Maycr. He laughs when people suggest that such a master of figures should have a hand in the selection of chorus girls. He admits that the higher mathematics of players' salaries are beyond his comprehension. Einstein's brand of relativity is a I cinch for this Italian-born scientist, [ He says that relativity is merely a kind ' of mathematical ° real stal ' s lo , rs ' In 10f y f tlrs 110 * 1 of "* shorthand, and ap- from the light lighting of reel he has had a hand in clinical advances made He is a pyhsicist who deals largely in i r? lhe flicl j? rs - L '« m »"<' soun . d nrc ' his meat. He spunks of sound perspective' 'as though it were visual. 'Light, to him, is a tangible commodity. Everything is cold mathematics, even pure science and leaves the practical application of his abstruse findings to i other men. Dr. Albert Einstein has named him a.s one of the five greatest mathematicians in America. Sulary Figures Stop Him All this sounds pretty aloof and im- froin the old school of Burr haters, but in any event he has offered some vital new interpretations of a formative period in American history.—P. G. F. Todays reducible to music. Russian and Spanish music, though, do give htm an emotional kick. Tele-vlsioning Profits Ceccarini is technical director of the studio's development of a new col(5r process. He offers no hint of what it's all about, but Metro is spending a-lot of money on it. He knows some ~p( the stars in lerms of photographic cdl- or sensitivities. Robert Taylor, for instance, i.s "blue sensitive" because he has a heavy beard which, when closely shaved, makes his jowls look blue. Virginia Bruce i.s "pink sensitive" because of the texture of her skin. Three- dimensional projection is something that Ceccarini is figuring on, but he has nothing to say about that. Television is another problem. When it comes, the movies intend to be able to use it to their profit and not to be victimized by it. ' Before he came to Metro, Ceccarihi did theatrical research in physics and electricity and his work is something called "the theory of circuits," and with electronic tubes won a lot of acclaim. He thinks the unseen and infinitesimal electron likely will make it possible for motion pictures to be made with only the faintest illumination- bill inside the camera light can be amplified just as sound now is amplified. The figure wizard takes a pencil and pad to bed with him and woos sleep by working out some exciting equations. Science has developed a tractor which |/lows in high gear.
