'•'FcarofSnoih Halts Change In Basic Law Tlic American people luivc an odd little liahil of ciiiTylntr on eiirnest public (tisciis.sions without, ever mentioning one of the most potent i.s.sues ill stake. If we presently jrct into nn IIVBU- inciit over whether we should amend the Constitution, it is a fairly safe bet that one of the primary considerations will be passed over in silence. This primary consideration is the politician—the kind of politician who rates the adjective "petty." In any cli.sctis.sion of constitutional change, he is the Ethiopian In the woodpile, lie's on everybody's mind, but nobody brings l.i i in into the open. We are going to hear a «ood deal about the need of a constitutional amendment that would give the federal government power to do .some of the things which the supreme court has recently said that it cannot do. Before he hears, any of the arguments on this proposition, the ordinary American lends to be deeply distrustful of it. And the reason for his distrust is the politician. Lay iijidc, for the moment, the <iues- tion whether such amendment is vitally needed, and consider what its first and most obvious eil'ect would be— namely, to increase enormously the power of the federal government. That naturally would mean a vast in• crease,in the number of government job-holders—a permanent, from-now•.', on increase, ours IVm'ough rain, or shine, through sickness or health, lo cherish forever. Those jobs would be permanent, but the job-holders wouldn't. They would be named by and for politician-:, and there would be a huuse- clcnning every time there was a new, administration in Washington, The bulk of them wouldn't be much good. They might know how lo carry precinct K in ward i) for Congressman Whoo/is, but what they would know about the administration of coal mines or the handling of farm surpluses you could .put in your Aunt Jlinnic's left eye. That is the sort of thing that sticks in the average American's craw. He thinks of it, subconsciously, when this constitutional amendment is discussed.' He may not talk about it, but he doesn't forget it—and he shouldn't forget it. ' What it comes down to, then, is the OOf"OURWAY £ simple fact that, before we eiui give our federal government new powers and responsibilities, we must do away with spoils politics; In its army, its navy, and.its technical services, the government employs thousands of men as single-minded, as ell'icient, and as cntliiisiiixlk'iilly competent as any in private industry. The same could he said of all its dcpiirlnients if the spoils-hunter could be chased out. Coil gross in an Disney of Oklahoma recently introduced a bill to set up a great 'training school for c'ivil appointees to government jobs. He envisages a government service ruled by the same high standards that now obtain in the military forces. And that, or something very much like it, must be the prelude to any permnnent extension of the government's functions. ' Youth's Problem Commencement speakers again are warning youth to watch out for this cock-eyed world. The young graduates are listening to the same old stulf— "values and standards have changed, new patterns ?nust be formed, youth must accept the challenge," and so on. Hut how many of these speakers have actually looked at the problem of youth today with n view to doing something about it? Well,: so far, there has been at least one: Dr. Homer P. Rainey, director of the American Youth Commission, Washington. It is Dr. Kidney's suggestion that we get out of the rut of narrow classical education mid formulate a curriculum suited to tlic needs and capabilities of the masses—in a word, vocational education. Jinny youths are out of jobs today, Dr. Hainey contends, because they were unable to qualify for available positions, not because there were no ings. That is an educational we can't ignore. open- error TUESDAY, MAY 20, SIDE GLANCES By George Clark OUR HOARDING HOUSE "The way mother and daddy carry on, you'd think thuv never had seen a habv before."

How quickly her rosy dreams had been shattered! Is'ow she thought bitterly .of those dreams. Why had Madame deliberately declared she wanted designs suitable for older women, when Gail's instructions iiad been to prepare youthful models? > Perhaps Madame hart resented the fact that Gait had returned late after lunch; though, if she had looked at the lime, cards, she \vonld have seen that Gail had not been gone even an hour. Then her thoughts flew to Dick. She liked him. Ho was. a good companion. Never having had a brolhcr of her own, Gail luid looked upon him ns one ever since Rosemary had invited her to spend a summer vacation at their home the year Gail's father had died. Of course they \vcre older now. Gail was ID ami Dick was 23— Koing into his father's office in the fall. Well, the "girl who married him would bavc a sood lime, and never a single worry about making ends meet. Gail rose from the bed.
