S. Attorney charged with clenninR up corruption In federal government, is the mnn for j thn job. Year* BRO he might have hern taken for n Rf<publienn. His fnihei was one. And Newbold's first polit- iean office was nn appointment in 1934 to n Kepublicnn-hcld sen! in New York Cily's Board of Aldermen. Since then no one, not even Ihe towerinR 50-yenr-old Monti himself, seems quite sure of lite polil- irnn convictions of this discendcnl Of a signer of the Deelnrnllon of Independence, This apparenl Inslnhllity is Irnee- nhlo to three imporlnnl influences In Morris' curly rnrwr; His almost fnnnlleal worship of New York's lale Mayor La Guardia, whose masterful polilical rnnn-j euvcrlnp; Morris didn't undcrsland ' but thought he did. Ills first wife's devotion lo tour- namerit bridge, which Morris didn't enjoy; The depression, which lied up the Morris wealth somewhat nnd caused the young scion to seek an outlet for his energy. •flint Outlet The outlet just happened to be politics in an era of political change whie.h put La Guardlft In office. Morris has tried to follow the La Guardla pattern. The result has been two defeats as candidate for mayor of New York while running under Ihe entwined banner of the Republican-Fusion- Jjidepcndcnt-Libcrni and New Deal parties. While he has been suffering defeat at the polls. Morris has been supporting Republican candidates who have run against the wishes of ,the party leaders; liberal and * independent candidates of many kinds, nnd even indirectly and directly, Democratic candidates, Morris says simply. "I'm nonpolitical." Very T'olllleal But to those who know him, he 5s very political. They know (hat be burns with the ambition lo be Mayor of New York, They know that, If history repeats, he will come close to winning but won't 'because he Invariably makes an important campaign boner when It hurts the most. Morris calls these boners "getting my silver foot In my mouth," a reference to his wealthy background and his failing for saying politically wrong things. Morris enjoys a good laugh even though it's on him. His SPMSO of humor has saved him from complete despair on several occasions when victory suddenly turned, lo defeat. Jokes Odd He orjco told an audience of very limited education volvod joke about two It Slenderizes an in- mathematics professors from Harvard and Ynle meeting on n train. Sensing the error, Morris, a Ynlc man, broke into the story to remark, "Why, oh why, did I ever Blurt this here?" But he went right on and finished the story and dryly remarked, when no one laughed: "I should never have none to Yale, or else I should have stayed out of politics." Although this self - appraisa' never seems to come in time lo nid him in his office seeking, H has made Morris one of Ihe best- liked figures in New York polllica circles. His almost boyish freshness makes him attractive lo women including "Oil Bout Olga," one o the figures In Ihe tanker deals under investigation, who testifiec she thought Morris charming When Morris was called to tel about his purl in the tanker deals FOLLOW THIS PATTICHN for your new slenderl/.lng two-plecer!

Ike Could Have Taken Slice of Stassen Ballots «y miUCK IVIOSSAT NI'IA Staff CorrvHponitent MINNEAPOLIS — fNKA) Minnesota's neutral political experts agree Gem-nil Eisenhower could have taken n healthy slice out of Harold K. Stassen's delegate cake bad his name remained on the primary balolt. Republicans elect 25 delegates on March 18 and another three are chosen In a GOP slate convention in May. Of the '£•>, seven nre picked •large and the other 18 In the nine Minnesota congressional districts.

Al-i large winners are determined by the statewide vote totals, and are equally bound. Kven the conven- j lion-seleclod delegates must follow | the stale results. ; No seasoned observer looked for! Eisenhower to win less than four lo six delegates, since he is judged lo be strong In the urban districts of Minneapolis, St. Paul and On j luth.

There is no compromise in Morris' makeup, which may be one ol his major political handicaps Another political handicap comes from being born on the nj:hl side of the trucks and therefore unaware of what make* Ihe \asi majority of voters lick. Also, Morris i.s a trusting soul. Many of his friends arc sure that. Morris' firm belief that La (iiiardia 'would pave the s\a\ to the rnayorship for him turned out lo be his biggest block. La Guardia promised he would step down, and on this promise Moiris became an unpubliciued public servant and a rubber stamp lo La Guarclia. The promise never was kept. Some of his friends are fearful that the same sort of fate may befall Morris in his present job. And, despite his declaration that he will quit and go home if he doesn't get complete Presidential backing, they wish he never had taken the assignment. or anywhere else. "He's had beta ir chance and he just didn'i make Ihe presidential grade." saiii one. "Now he's through."

Even Ihe small but intensely loyal cadre of men who have stood with him from his 19,'I8 beginnings in politics concede that many of Stassen's friends were and still are confused about his 1952 can- didac His original support of Eisenhower and subsequent turnabout leave them puz/led as to his motives.

Within 20 minutes of iho report of (he "disaster," members of thn emergency servire squad of Kxplorer Scroll Post 57 had reported to their base, Milton flic department. Post 57 bus been speclali/lng In cmtTRenry preparedness for the past two years, and holds surprise practice mobilizations from lime to time. Moth personnel and unit emergency equipment, was loaded in the Post truck, the 22 Explorers and lenders Into cars, and the convoy departed Into the night. Scone of the disaster was a decried hilltop house which sup- losedly had been hit by the Imng- nnry tornado. With full equipment inloadetl, the Explorers were brief- d by Fred Schuolz, deputy senior row leader, divided Into crews, md climbed the hill to the disaster. There they were met by Tom Slut- tell, senior cc^vv leafier, who led he outfit in a toroviKh search of the grounds and house. Three "victims" wore found, one overcome by smoke and badly Minted, was located In the basemen! ; another, badly cut. by flying illass, was found unconscious in the living room, the third, suffering r l'om a compound fracture of the leg, was treated In the second story bedroom. All three were then carried to I he waiting transportation for return to Alton. Following completion of the problem, a critique oC the night's problem was hold to highlight things Hint had been done well, and suggest improvements where needed. Coffee and doughnuts were served, and the Post returned to the Milton fire department, sponsors of the unit. The Post has emphasized first aid and disaster training, and many members have completed the standard first aid course taught by the lied Cross. Special first aid and disaster equipment h^s been purchased or made by the Post, and further additions are planned. Such pi-notices, which are made as realistic as possible, and which always come as a surprise to the Explorers, enable them to main- lain a high state oC efficiency so that they will truly be prepared to provide real assistance in time of local disaster. Explorer Post 57 has approximately 30 members, mostly from the Milton area, from 3.4 to 18 years old. Post Adviser is Eckford J. de Kay; assistant advisers are Ken neth Harm, and Donald Wilson.
