COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 1949 THI NATION TODAY Marlow Compares U.S. Senate With 'Greatest Show on Earth' And Finds Admission is Free By June* Mirlow WASHINGTON, April 1. («")—For butter paUles-on-the-back, see the United SUtet Senate. Bit in the gallery for free «my day and took down on one of l»e createct shows on earth. 8M Uie 96 senators, although not all arc there at any otic lime, iettl« the fate of the nation. * Watch their tempers get raw but notice how, even when they heave harpoon, they dress the tip in •pimmering - praise For In anger they still butter one mother up with a tender Introduction. "Will the very distinguished senator yield?" says one, alhouglj he may not think there's anything very distinguished about the man he's asked to yield. And the ylelder may wish the other one would stop Interrupting, but he says "it Is- a pleasure to yield to the most able senator." The high point this year was reached by Senator Douglas, Illinois, Democrat, during the filibuster debate. He was against it. He had the floor and was asked to yield lor a questloniby Senator Russell,' Georgia, Democrat, and captain ot the filibusters. "I yield," said Douglas, "with a great deal of trepidation, as I tace one of the most able field generals I suppose who ever appeared on the floor of the United States Senate; and though my knees are knocking, I am very glad Indeed to yield." Once rrt a while Senator Tom Connally, Texas, Democrat, gets & little irritated and shows it with a sarcasm he lays on with a heavy hand. Connally Is chairman of the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee which soon will begin hearings on the Atlantic pact. He's for It, But Senator Dunkell, Missouri, Republican, has doubts about It, and, this week took a lot of Senate time to say so although the pact wasn't up for debate. He asked Connally on the Senate floor U he could take part in the debate although he Is not on tlie committee. "We," said Cbmmlly, "are always glid to hear eminent senators give their eminent views on eminent questions." After listening to the 96 of them year after year, you begin to form a box-score of your own. Here's mine: Beet speaker—Claude Pepper, Florida, Democrat. He's the toughest man In debate on the Senate and Alken, Vermont, Republican. Two thoughtful, Intelligent men.

L. Penrman, hcnd psychiatrist-at Wayne County General Haspltal. Attorneys for the co-defendants Ualph Ray Hunter, 25, and James Sacchcttl, 31, tried to block the calling In of psychiatrists. So did prosecutor Ocrnld O'Hrien. Judge Joseph A. Oillis Over-ruled them. Mrs. Larl's attorney, J, Elmer Cresswell, said the purpose of calling on psychiatrists was to show Dint his client would have acted as she said she did on the night Elmer B. Jones, a wealthy contractor, wos killed.. Mrs. Lari hnel testified that Hunter and Sacchcltt forced her, by threats, to take part In the crime. "How would she rcacl to emotional stress, duress or domination," Crcsswell asked the psychiatrist. "I expect she certainly would not handle the situation in the way that ft normal adult would," said Dr. Pearmau. As the trial nearccl a close, police took extra precautions with Sne- chelti and Hunlcr. They said the men boasted openly of trying to escape. We don't know whether this is brnBgadlocio or what," said Inspector Vnim C. Rodgers, "but >ve arc taking no chances." Woman with Only One Year to Live Asks Advice on How to Spend $10,000 OKLAHOMA CITY, —f/P)—Death In 12 months—and $10,000 to spend before It comes. . , What would you do? An Oklahoma City woman—a middle-aged widow—doesn't know. But she Is asking, In all sincerity, for advice Here Is the background: We'll call her Mrs. Heart. She Is 51. Doctors have told her a henrt ailment probably will claim her within a year. Mrs, Heart Is moderately wealthy. She became a business woman alter her husband was killed In tile first World War, made wise Investments, and used her money cautiously. She sold her business eight years ago, ready to enjoy her financial harvest, to live In comparative luxury the rest of her life. But then the doctor said only for a year. Now she doesn't know what to do. Mrs. Heart, through the Dally Oklahoman, has asked the public for advice. The newspaper has investigated her story. It's neither publicity nor sympathy Mrs. Heart is seeking. Just a simple request for help In deciding hpw best to spend ?IO,000. Ing that money in cattle. All got the same reply: The newspaper had agreed to keep her Identity a secret. Put It In writing and the letters will all go to Mrs. Heart.

Mrs. Heart won't tell her friends. "Then," she says. "It Immediately becomes a personal thing. They'd be forever asking If you felt all right. And they'd stop talking when you came into the room." She has considered anolher marriage, but— "I would want to know someone pretty well before I thought of marrying him. I am terribly lonely." He would not share in her estate. Merely help her spend the $10.000 she allotted herself for this last year. A calm phllosphy has replaced the initial shock of knowing that death—to her—is a timed thing. "It's the most peculiar sort of feeling." she SUVE. "I have lost fear. I used to be afraid to travel by plane. It made me ill. Now it does- n'l bother me at all. ". . .It's a reckless kind of feeling.' Mrs. Heart's plight won quick reaction from the nation. City Editor nalph Sewel! of the Dally Oklahoman gave up trying to get the morning sleep to which every morning newsman is entitled.
