SUNDAY TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD, SUNDAY, MARCH 11, 1945 SEVEN DREW Pf ARSON e WASHINGTON Grant&mlle Aviation Cadet Pearson Says:" — Notion Grows That Ranitin's Foes Die Early; Hope Diamond Won; by Mrs,: McLean to Blood Bank; Murray Coneerneid Over Strike Threat Increase; Movie Mogul* Suspicious of Film Experts. Washington, March 10—Ex-Con- Ire.ssman Edgar 'Howard of Neb- fa ska, who served twelve years with f Republican titular leader" John llankin of Mississippi, says that a fcueer superstition grew up when he pas In Congress that anyone who Jangled with Rankin later died. .-. Congressman Howard witnessed Ihe fight on the floor of th« House jx>iween Rankin and Ogden Mills, filler Secretary of the Treasury. Mills died a short time later though [nill a relatively young man. Rankin 3Iso threw an inkwell at Prank Hog an,' attorney for Andrew Melbon. Hogah is now dead. Since, Howard left Congress, the I .superstitious hove chalked .up an- lotlwr death to Rankin, that of 1 Congressman Edelstein of New 'York, who had a. heart attack a f«s minutes after Rankin had excori- |j sited Wra on the floor. Fellow-Congressmen are now bill provid- of all War I looking quizzically into the health | of Representative Frank Hook of [Michigan ever since the Mississip- 1 plan leaped upon his back; and I sb-o are kidding Representative I Bonner of North Carolina who near- I ly tangled with 'itankin in the Com- |mlttee on Privileges and Elections. The Committee was considering [the Soldier's Vote Bill In a closed I door session last year when Rankin | shid to Bonner: "Bonner have you read this bill?" "Certainly," replied Bonner. But | ft few minutes later, Rankin, in an «ven harsher voice, again asked Bonner: "Have you read this bill?" Bonner keeping patience, replied that he had. But a few minutes later, when Rankin for the third time asked, "Bonner have you read this .bill?" the North Caolina Con- pressman shot back: "If you ask me that question again, I'll knock your biunk. blank mouth open." After that the gentleman from Mississippi kept quiet. • • . Hope Diamond at Blood Center Evfllyn Walsh McLean, owner of [the Hope Diamond and author of "Father Struck it Rich," arrived at [ the Washington Blood Donor Center the other day and threw the whole place Into a panic. It was not that Mrs. McLean demanded anything or behaved any differently from any other blood donor.. She didn't. She arrived with no fanfare and wanted no fuss. It was the fact that she actually had the Hope Diamond around her neck which caused the pandemonium. Mrs. McLean claims that the dia- t(yy in Europe is'around the corner. He is afraid of reaction against labor among returning TJ.'S. troops and is demanding that all CIO leaders reaffirm labor's no-strllte pledge Immediately. War Mobllizer Byrnes' oSlce has prepared a ing for court review Labor Board dtclsions. Other Administration leaders' differ with Byrnes, claiming that judicial review of War Labor Board decisions will take so long that the Board will be torpedoed. : ' ; The Texas millionaires who contributed $130,000 to Prank. Gannett's Committee for Constitutional Government last year—on the assurance that their contribution would be a tax-exempt—had a rude awakening this week. The Bureau o! Internal Revenue has ruled that no exemption may be claimed for these contributions. • Most successful attempt at political re-education of Nazi prisoners tried by our Army has been at a camp in Ascot, south of London, England, where 300 Nazis volun- teored for instruction. The project, which was carried on with grudging support and no real aid from the War Department, has been fairly successful, but there has been little effort to try the same tactics on the mass of German prisoners in the Coiigressio 11 a 1 .Library Visit Tunis Dixoii Into a Tip-toer ' -' • • •[••.".- « - i i' .*•: -i " . -. ••- 'By GEORGB DIXON WASHINGTON, March ll-ilf'11 wishes to maintain its copyright claims., every publishing concern In the country must send two' copies ot everything it publishes to the Library of Congress.

In the United States, as a whole, the British now have about 8,500 employees—though some are Canadians, and some are Americans recruited for British work.

Their face were grave musks of study. • "My goodness," I whispered to my self, "They must be a couple of those child prodigies I have heard about! I wonder what abstruse subjects they are absorbing?" Unable to curb curiosity any longer but fearful of disturbing giant intellects at work I crept up quietly and peered over their .shoulders. I wish I had restrained myself. The disillusioning little bums were poring over bound volumes of comic strips! .: : » * * All .1 gotta say is, those kids probably have a great future, the chiseling little hounds!

It is estimated that the Red Army has now killed or captured 1,200,000 Germans in its winter drive. In addition nearly half a million Germans now face encirclement in East Prussia and Po'meraniti. The Russians have now become even more skilled than the Nazis in by-passing heavily- armed cities and -waiting for them to be starved out while the Reds advance. This was the trick taught by ths -Nazis themselves at the beginning of the war. • Hollywood Film War Under the guise of winning the war, It looks as if certain countries were beginning a clever, covert wari| against Hollywood and getting' themselves fixed for future peacetime film competition. Most precious commodity hi the fllm industry to. day is raw film, most of which comes from the U.S.A. We have : been allocating a. certain amount of It to other countries for war uses, but now suddenly as peace in Europe nears, their demands have Jumped up. For instance Australia .and India are now asking a total of 50 million feet of raw fllm per year. Russia is asking 40 million. Mexico has quadrupled its demands, arid may fllm people think Mexico is a blind by which raw stock Is syphoned off to Argentina, Hollywood fllm companies don't object to the export of a certain amount of raw film provided it really is for war-use!;—such as training films for the Red Army. But they / t think wo ought to look into the -latter carefully and ascertain what the film is really used for. • • If, for instance, it is bcinj used to i build tip post-war competition against Hollywood, then there going to be a howl. In fact a howli has already started. . i Questions also are being asked by j some- of the Hollywood independents as to what the big U. S. com-! panics arc doing with all their film. 1 The big companies are asking for, 60 million'more feet of fllm. Despite .the fact that records already show the big companies have used up more fllm than the actual number of pictures produced, the independents, therefore, are wonder- Ing what has happened to tht balance. Among other things, they wonder whether the big boyi we storing up unused prints to flood the market as »oon as trie war Is •wr. -. • . ;: .

Senator Kenneth McKellar, .Inveighing against Aubrey Williams as head of the Rural Electrification Administration, ra'ised the lustiest laugh of ail at the Senate ' Agriculture Committee's hearings. During his efforts to pin tfte communist label on William, McKellar's tongue got twisted and he started talking of "Congressman- dominated organizations" rather than "Communist-dominated."
