There are a whole sef of ;rtew threats, not only from figypf, but other <|UiSrte'rs where a ioekeylng for position between the various nations is taking pldee. . No area can live forever In a state of uncertainty; something will have to give. As soon as the Suez Canal is completely open/but before Nasser can rebuild the armies MEdypf, the Israelis will certaily send some of their ships Into the canal. Egypt has said "they shall not pass."

The showdown is com• Ing soon, arid whethe*- we Ilka it or not, we'll be right in the middle of whatever happens. £ 4- ^ '~ WHERE THE $$$ GO BUDGET Now thai the postoffice" matter seem* to have leveled off so far as curtailment of service . and new funds are Concerned, some interesting information Is coming to light with regard to the operation of the fiscal policies of the post- office under Postmaster General Summerfield. During the past fiscal year the postoffice department spent over 624 million the first C>U j rt fn* a ^' t 547 milllor < the second quarter, d na y3 million the third quarter, leaving 454 milliori; for the last quarter or some 47 million less than Mr Summerfield estimates the department wijl need until July 1. ,. :,. The strange part of this'whole thing is that in .the last budget, the posfofflce department not only,got^rythlng for which it asked in the way of money, but ALSO was 1 given 6 million MORE than was requested. In other words, adding;the six and 47, million together, the post- j?,p? de P artment Actually spent 53 more million dollars than Congress WdS' told 'it'would need a year ago at'the last budget^making session. In other words, Summerfield's management has 9° n . e . ast , rc |y somewhere by a mere matter of 53 million dollars; .,-,. But what> a mere 53 million, in a good Business administration? ; .-*"••• <».- .*..'» QUITE A COMBINATION While the state legislature, Republican c^n*. trolled, has been having a field day trying to maneuver Governor Loveless into as unfavorable a position as possible, the Governor finds himself with support from unexpected quarters in connection with his proposed state budget for the next two years. The legislative appropriations committee proposed to lop something like 1.4 million from the budget. But most of this would come out of various state department funds, all of which are Beaded by Republicans- The department heads are springing vigorously to the Governor's defense, so we have the strange spectacle of Keput>lican legislators trying to curtail the Governor's budget, but the department heads whose A couple of enterprising Washington reporters - or perhaps they merely had a lot of time on their hands - decided to make a thor« bugh study of the new U.
