Demobilized, Powell was elected to Parliament from the industrial, town of Wolverhamp- on in 1950, which was a vintage year for the Conservatives, pro- iucing such leaders as Heath, Reginald Maulding and Ian Wacleod, as well. In Parliament Powell was all but ignored by three successive Conservative prime ministers.

Eemember TO Pay Your Paper Boy the Barry Goldwater of Britain. Others liken him to ex-Gov. Wallace of Alabama. •But the admirers think of Powell, aged 56, and a Conservative member of Parliament,, as a heroic figure along the lines of Oliver Cromwell, who made thrones tremble and weak-kneed politicians quake. It was Powell who touched off the present wave of racial tension by making a s p e e c h at Birmingham in which he warned that Britain was "mad" to permit uncontrolled immigration. Powell went on to predict that "rivers of blood" .would flow if the influx of immigrants was not curbed. For using this kind of "inflammatory" language he was promptly fired from his position as Shadow Cabinet defense minister by the leader of t h e Conservative party Edward Heath. Even Powell must have been surprised at the support he has received from the British working class. London dock workers and meat porters have forfeited a day's pay in order to march ;o the House of Parliament on behalf. His mail bag has bulged with thousands of letters saying, in effect, "Enoch Powell is the only man in Britain with the guts to s a y what everyone is thinking."., . Those who have observed Powell closely, however, claim that he has no desire to lead a racialist crusade. Enoch, they say, is aiming at higher stakes, his intention being to bid for the. Conservative party leadership. It is no secret that Powell intensely dislikes Edward Heath, the present Tory leader, whom he considers to be too moderate, too much of a consensus man. Under Heath's leadership, the Tory party has gradually come to accept a large amount ol socialist planning as inevitable, according to PoweU. * * * Powell, on the other hand, believes in free enterprise and is opposed to planning of any sort. He would "de-socialize" all of the nationalized industries, including even the postal service. He is also opposed to income policies, export incentives and the whole apparatus by which the present Labor government is attempting to hold inflation in check. The ensemble of his views is known as "Powellism" here. Born in Birmingham of a lower middle-class family, Enoch was the bright boy who won a scholarship to Cambridge University, where he was more interested in discussing Herodotus than in dating girls. At the age of 25 he became a professor of Greek at Sydney University in Australia. The outbreak of the war sent him hurrying home, where he enlisted as a private, ending the war as a brigadier in army intelligence. His enemies like to say that Powell was an armchair strat- minor post, Harold Macmillan upgraded him to financial secretary of the treasury. It was not until 1960 that he first tasted power, when he was made minister of health, a post he held for three years. Powell's obsession with the racial question is of recent date. In Wolverhampton which he represents in Parliament, nonwhite immigrants total about 15,000, 5.5 per cent of the population, which is no higher than many Midland towns. Last February, however, Powell began speaking about "a sense of hopelessness and helplessness" in the face of the continued flow of immigration. That Britain should have saddled itself with such a problem was "enough to make one weep," he declared. That it should allow the problem to be magnified further was "enough to drive qne to despair." Fifty - thousand immigrants were being allowed to enter Britain every year as dependents of immigrants already established here, Powell said, "It is hard to describe such a policy, or lack of policy, other than as crazy."

In a recent team match, both South players became declarer at three no-trump and both Wests opened the queen of hearts. There was nothing surprising about this.

The play started the same way at both tables. South ducked the first heart, won the second and led his four of club*. WMt plajnd Un eight, and hfre there was a divergence. At the first table, the eight was allowed to hold. West proceeded to lead a third heart and East proceeded to throw away his queen of clubs. It was a happy decision for his side. If he had hung on to it, South would have entered his hand with a spade or diamond, led the nine of clubs and ducked it to the queen after West played the 10. East would have been in the lead and West's heart suit would have died on the vine. As it was, West was able to gain the lead and cash two hearts. At the other table, South rose with dummy's ace" of clubs at trick three.. Again East was equal to the occasion. He dropped his queen of clubs under the ace. This made both the king and 10'of clubs entries to the West hand and this declarer bit the dust also. This happened to be an expert competition and the post- game discussion concerned itself with which line of play had made it harder for East to find the right defense.. It was a short of silly discussion, in that everyone agreed that neither East player had done more than play correctly. We are rather inclined to cempliment both Easts. It takes • |et of bridge savvy to make these fancy plays at the ta- bit, but each on* cam* through. Powell will not risk a frontal attack on Edward Heath on the racial or any other issue, for fear of being accused of splitting the Conservative party. In coming months he is expected to build up a power base | in the constituencies, thus bypassing the Conservative leadership to appeal directly to the rank-and-file. In this way he can bring pressure not only on Heath, but on other moderate Conservatives. The showdown will probably come in October when the Conservative party holds its annual conference at Blackpool. At ;hat time Powell may emerge as the new party leader, marking a sharp swing of the Conservative party to the right. He may well be a future British prime minister along Barry Goldwater lines.
