PAGE FOUR ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19,1952 Editorial On the Writing of n Political Book Gravely we doubt thit H.S.T. will bt t cindi- . date for another term as president. Skillfully he h»» concealed his views, keeping hi» thought* or purpose* closely veiled, secret, veiled by swift ch»n«e», like the iTugician'* "now you JM it now you don't." But they arc saying that he is nuking ready a bonk revealing his observations during his career in public lif«. If the samples that are drifting under the door, of blowing in the winds out of the windows, or perhaps being made purposely to look as if coming out unintentionally, it might be clever advertising with advance sheets. But writing of books has long held to be « foolish exposing of our Achilles heel of weakness. The oldete book in the Bible ii commonly believed by Biblical students to be the Book of Job. As fir back in the endless making of books, the author of the Book of Job declaimed in his soul-searching anguish of mind: Oh that one would hear mej behold, my desire is, that the Almighty would answer trie, and that mine adversary had written a book." It would seem that the great Biblical dramatist was considering the dangers to which a book author is exposed. So, we may commend to H.S.T. the thirty-fifth verse of the 31st chapter of the Book of Job, if already he has; not studied it. Perhaps after the outpouring of his hate and his contempt for those with whom he has contended and disagreed, he may be expressing his opinion of utter folly in the outburst of hi« feelings In the bookj It probably would be impossible for H.S.T. to expose his inmost feelings and still retain the ability to go again before the public and ask fqj enough votes to 1 make him successful in future political aspirations. His contenders may adapt as their own expressions the exclamation of Job wishing that their adversary (H.S.T.) would write a book. Day. by day revelations are being made as to Truman's feelings toward fellow men in posts of importance that can only intensify ill will toward him on the part of men whose hate fires need but little stimulation. Chest Fortunate In Its Leadership In securing Charles Tall man as its board chairman, the Alton Community Chest has been extremely fortunate. Mr. Tallnun is succeeding a man, Robert H. Levii III, whose leadership has helped immeasurably to Strengthen the Chest during his last two years, and his devotion to the Chest cause, however, assure that-.there, will be no letdtwn in the organization's future progress. .The Morrow Bring the Springtime Are you prepared for it? The formal entry of spring, we mean. •Tomorrow, ai 10: M in the morning, spring will arrive. That's the exact time of the vernal equinox, which nvans the beginning of spring. The eanh's axis is tilted 21 degrees 27 minutes away from the A perpendicular to the orbit, and only in March and September occur the spring and fall equinoxes, when night and day are nearly equal the world over. In our own /one, daylight, and darkness will lc almost equal in duration. The sun will rise at 6:0) and set at d:\l. The equinox alio bring* the change in seasons. This year, spring begins on \larch 20, instead of the usual March 21 or 22, because this is leap ytir and the seasonal change is ' moved up" a day. The <|oming' of the springtime brings to us nature in its new beauty, its eternal rebirth. Our thoughts turn to the beauties to come—the budding trees, the flowers, the green grjss; and, with memories of devastating norms of the p.m, we hope this March will forget all about winds and tornadoes, instead will go its even way, ushering in the springtime for which we've waited through the long winter. Cow In Slew Hotter Than PHI Substitute Eating should lie fun, according to » pure food and drug administration report. That's straight from the horse's mouth (no offense to Chicago). We have contended for years that eating IS fun. In fact, it's so much fun that some editorial writers arc been accused by their wives and mothers of eating too much. The government report on eating was linked with i swat aimed at "propaganda" put out by pill merchants trying—and succeeding—to sell Americans something to add to their meals. Said Pure Pood Commissioner Charles W. Crawford in a .summary for the president and Congress, "An attempt to undermine public confidence in the nutritive value of the nation's food supply is being fostered by mercenary and 'faddist 1 elements. . ."• This suggestion gives rise to a new slogan to sweep the U. S,: "Toss the pills away, Mother, and put some cow in the stew!" We noticed an ad for a spring sale in a California newspaper the other d.iy, and wondered if the .state's Chamber of Commerce had let things get out of control—admitting there was a difference. It's almost time for spring housc-clc.ining, when you'll probably find some of the things that you've been missing since fall house-cleaning. Side Glances fty Galbralth Pearson's Merry-Go-Round Steel Strike Up to 4 Men WASHINGTON, March 19.-Tlio final decision regarding a steel strike will depend primarily on four men. These men belong neither to the union nor to n atecl company. They are the government officials who must decide whether they can permit a boost in wages to be compensated for by a boost in the price of steel. The four men arc: Ex-Gov. Ellis Arnall of Georgia, now on the Immediate price firing line as director of the Office of Price Stabilization; Roger Putnam, Springfield, Mass., manufacturer, now hnncl of Economic Stabilization; Charles E. Wilson, former head of General Electric, now head of Defense Mobilization; and, finally, President Truman. > AU four, at the moment, are agreed that the steel-Industry profits are zooming, that they have never been so high before, and that they are ample to take care of the wage boost being propbsecl by tho wage board. They also agree that to grant an Increase in steel prices—beyond the modest boost which comes automatically under the Capeharl: amendment—would start more inflation. Furthermore, OPS Director Ar- nalh feels so strongly about this that he would resign before uppinc; the price of sleel. Arnall doesn't believe In foreworks or fancy resignations. But he has told close friends that he'll politely pick up his hat and go back to Georgia if he is ordered to grant an increase in steel prices. Significantly, President Trumnn feels exactly the same way. He has told advisers that he won't give the steel industry a penny of price Increase. So, If the men at the top and bottom stick together, the steel industry may be in for a rough time. Jet Censorship Secretary of Ihe Navy Dan Kimhall has put himself in the position of censoring navy subordi nales for talking to the Washington Merry-Go-Round, yet at the same time criticizing the Washington Merry-Go-Round for allegedly failing to talk to the navy. Last week, this columnist published a comparison of naval jet engines purchased from Pratt- Whitney In East Hartford, Conn., and Allison Motors in Indianapolis, in which it was pointed out that the Allison jet job cost only $31,000, while the Pratt-Whilney jet job cost $50,046. Yet the nav.v ordered 2435 of the more expensive P>'att-Whitney engines and onl.v 200 of the Allisons, though nav; pilots, as of February, still found the Pratt-Whitney performance "unacceptable." Immediately following publication of this column, one naval technician, Vernon Haynos, mentioned as favoring the Allison engine, was sent a peremptory letter by the navy, demanding an explanation as to why he had "talked to Pearson." Subsequently, Haynes was summoned to the office of the Secretary of the Navy and asked to explain why his name had "appeared in Pearson's-column" as favoring the Allison engine. Simultaneously, the same Secretary of the Navy wrote an official letter inquiring why Pear- ton had not discussed jet engines Alton Evening Telegraph Publlihed by Alton Telfgrnph Printing Company P.

In other words, the navy appeared more concerned with smoking out my news sources than cracking clown on off leers, responsible for the Jet-engine blunder. "Talking to Pearson," it seemed, was a greater crime than having no jot pianos capable of meeting the enemy in Korea. Kefmiver'* C'linnros Tho roul lost of whether Senator Kefauvor ciin buck I ho united weight of Trumnn forces and city bosses will come within Ihe next 60 days in four key primaries. They arc Wisconsin and Nebraska, both on April 1, New Jersey on April 15, and Florida May 27. Of those tho most interesting baltlos will bo in Nebraska and Florida. Tho Nolmiskn primary is against Senator Hob Kerr, genial Okla- homii oil millionaire vwho has the backing of Truman's former counsel, Orti-k Clifford. This results from the interesting fact tliHt Clifford is Washington lobbyist for Phillips Petroleum, and that Senator Kerr participates in various Phillips oil and gas leases in the Southwest. The Florida primary, however, will be even more significant. Here Kcfauver will buck overwhelming odds, as follows: (A). The popularity of Senator Russell of Georgia, . (Hi. The big money of the big gamblers. (C). The political machine of Florida's Gov. Fuller Warren. Florida will be the first test between Russell and Kefauver. Generally speaking, southern senators are jealous of their Tennessee colleague, fool he is too young, has served too briefly in the Senate. Seniority counts heavily in Con- gross, and men liko George of Georgia, now over 70, and Mc- Kollar of Tennessee, now over 80, bitterly resent Kefmwer's youth, energy, and popularity. That's one reason they goaded Senator Russell Into becoming a candidate. Gamblers Want Revenge An even greater handicap In Florida, however, will be the gambling money sure to oppose Kefauver. Gamblers nil the way from Chicago to Miami have made no secret of their hope that the Tennessee Senator would enter the Florida primary. And they are laying to get him, no matter how much it costs. Also lying in wait is Democratic Gov, Warren, who accepted more than n quarter of a million dollars of gambler contributions and was promptly put on the spot by the Kefiuivcr committee. As of today. Warren has never accepted the Kofnuvor Invitation to testify. So, when Kefauver comes into Florida, as ho definitely Is doing, the most potent and wealthy forces in Ihe state will be waiting—itching for revenge. Some other important primaries will lake place before Florida, such as Illinois, April 6, Pennsylvania. April 22, and Maryland M;iy 5, but none quite as significant or as tough as Florida.

TOONERV1LLE FOLKS THE TERRIBLE TEMPEKEP M^. BANG Little Lady in Gotham Taller' Than Many Men By HAL BOVLK NEW YORK — A 1 — She stood, a small lady among many taller men, and In her heart she laughed because she knew she was taller than they were. She was taller than they were because she had more land. And In her heart she felt that land was power, because she trusted acres more than people. Sophistication and recognition were pretty much new to 64-year- old Susan Haughlan when she came here on a visit to Manhattan Island from Montana. But they weren't as new as she made out. T am n local yokel and I waylaid this country girl on her first sustP.inerf visit to the big city. She was fun to squire around, and this was her story: She was one of 1(5 children born in Ireland, and naturally she settled over here In a small cozy place like Montana. It. reminded her of home—it was so much bigger. 40 Acre* She and her man — Dan, his name was — started with 40 acres whore that was an apology and a possibility. Tho family did a lot of pioneer- Ing way out west where the wind blows free and the animals graze when they can. Susan is pretty proud of Dan for providing her with Ihe first house in her lifetime that had hot and cold running water and tho local definition of central heating. There nlso were five sons and five daughters he gave her. Of course it is hnrd to pick among children — in Montana or your town. But I don't Ihink Susan will ever forget: her sixth child, now known also as Susan and no more her favorite than some of the others loday. Dan know of course he couldn't get to a doctor—they are a long way off in Montana, and the country isn't shrinking. Susan spread a rug on tho cold floor when the pains came upon her and had a normal and a fine daughter all alone. Her other children waited in another room. She cut the cord of birth and blew warm breath upon the cold frame of her newborn babe. The neighbor woman that Dan brought said with Ihe exultation of I all women: ! "I knew you would do II. I knew you would." Dan wont into another room — he was a si rone man — and wept. Loft Widow In 1931 Dan ga\o up his long struggle against the weather and the land and died. He left Susan a widow with 10 children and about $20.000 in debts. "Nobody sent mo a single hill," sho recalls. "And, of course, they didn't really have to." How about today" Well. Ihe hanker is ready to talk to Susan anytime, back there in any town near Miles City. She's got the bail money ready for her herders when they come into town after six months or so in the hills. Oh, maybe there's 1600 cattle or so now, and say 2300 ewes and 400 lambs. Bui how about that spreading patch of Montana she controls 1 .' "Well, of course now they are looking for oil Itmt way out there." said Susan cautiously. "You know, j I just have no respect for people, who tib, 1 don't respect them at all. 1 suppose maybe we own or lease about 80.000 to 100.000 acres or more. And some be>ipnd that." Pause. "But it was ~>an first and then the children who rre responsible," ' said Susan.

Committeemen have been tipped off that. Tramutolo and certain other officials in San Francisco are secretly planning two retaliatory indictments. The reported targets are Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles O'Gara and Richard V. Hyer, reporter of the San Francisco Call-Bulletin. Both played leading roles in forcing the disclosure of scandals in the local Internal Revenue office. As a result of these revelations, Tax Collector James Smyth and a number of his assistants were fired ariTl later indicted. Because of their forthright crusading, O'Gara and Hyer were subjected to a series of harass- mcnts and threats. Both were repeatedly grilled by Justice department agents. Then O'Gara, a young Pacific war veteran, was barred by Tramutolo from handling criminal cases. Finally, a secret attempt was made to have O'Gara and Hyer indicted on the ground they had "tampered" with a grand jury that was trying to investigate their charges of corruption anil incompetence in the reyenue office. This scheme was dropped when it was exposed in this column—but, apparently, it was not abandoned. According to inside word reaching House investigators, the plan has been revived with the help of two federal judges who were accused of blocking the grand jury from acting. These judges will be probed by the House committee. Also duo for scrutiny will be the action of Judge Oliver Carter in ordering another grand jury to investigate Hyor and his paper for a sensational expose of the private real estate operations of another federal judge. Before being ap- pointod to the bench, Carter was California State Democratic chairman. The revived scheme to Indict O'Gara and Hyer is a direct outgrowth of the recent San Francisco hearings of the House committee investigating the Internal Revenue Bureau. These hearings were sketchy, superficial, and of little value. O'Gara was allowed to testify, but was treated largely as a "hostile witness." Rep. Eugene Keogh (D.-N.Y..I and general counsel Adrian DeWind displayed open animus toward O'Gara. Before grilling O'Gara, Keogh conferred with William Malone, local Democratic leader, whose brother is one of the ousted Revenue officials. Hyer wasn't called before the committee at all. Also, the committee completely ignored the Los Angeles and Nevada Internal Revenue offices, against whom numerous charges have been made. Apparently as a result of the committee's critical attitude toward O'Gara and Hyer, their vengeance-seeking foes fell they can start gunning for them again. II that is their.attitude, they are due for a big surprise. The judiciary probers have ordered a complete transcript of thr San Francisco hearings, particularly the testimony of Tramutolo and his predecessor, F. J. Hennessy. Both may shortly find themselves facing grand jury aclion, or tho demand of the House investigators. Tramutolo, in fact, may be ousted oven before that happens. The White House has been strongly advised to houseclean thr San Francisco U.S. Attorney's office and to start that by replacing Tramutolo with an abler and more dynamic official.
