FRIDAY .MORNING, SEPTEMBER 19, 1947 In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against, the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.Ecelessiastes : 7:li. SKUNKS : The little creature called a skunk is, for reasons not in the least his own fault, ostracized by Society. Here is a little fellow who minds his own business in reasonable measure, who seldom intrudes upon -those to whom he is objectionable, and never has wiythintr vicious to say or do except in defense of his own precarious life, i Experts will tell you that he is one of a variety of musteline mammals of the genus Mephitis. Remember that. He is not in any degree related to the things which crept through Clematis and other streets stealing from windows broken by the recent hurricane. : Between those creeping whelps and the skunk, there is not the slightest trace of similarity. Because we are, of necessity, obliged to avoid the little mammal to whom Nature has riven such an emphatic defense mechanism, we are prone also to malijtn the little fellow by invidious comparisons. Do riot call these looters who trail the misfortunes of disaster by any such name as "skunk". I Call them maggots who breed in corruption and are bereft of any decency whatsoever. They are ghouls who would "as readily rob the dead as they would :loot a broken window in a common disaster. We hope that several of these 'specious humans were caught at their ired-handed business. We hope that these will face Justice; and get it. To those remaining uncaujrht, we hope that these lines fall to your eye. In all the scale of human depravity, there is no more revolting; inadequacy than you have displayed. Learn quickly to hate yourself, Mr. Looter. For if you can do less, there Is no room in human society for you. It has long been settled that the military should use their rifles when dealing with looters during disaster. Gentle as we normally are, we relish that practice. There is small hope for a Society in which the impulse is to steal from an unfortunate rather than lend him a helping hand. : Such looters are one in a thousand, but that is a percentage we should regard as a blot on the human species. A LONG LANE . There is an old saying that it is a long lane which has no turning. That comes to us at the moment. A number of years ago, we happened to be in the Embassy of the t'nited States in London. A highly distinguished guest arrived. We were privileged to meet him. ' He was former Secretary of State Kel-logg. He was deeply immersed in what ;then was called "the Kellogg Plan." By a combination of nations, he purposed disarmament so that war would be impossible. Not only outlawed, impossible. :He was thoroughly earnest. : He was an aged man. One felt that the crowning triumph of his life would be the consumatiOn of this plan. He was, of course, faced by the need of dealing contractually with foreign statesmen. Any treaty is but a contract. It is but a piece of paper to be torn up by any subsequent bandit whose purposes are best suited by war. i But, pursuant to such a plan, and such a contract, these United States scuttled many of its battleships and permitted its air armament and Army to deteriorate. We, rjf course, fulfilled the contract. Can it be said that the others did? : Recalling that day, we look with Idubiety on "The Marshall Plan." No matter how excellent the plan may be, pro forma, how responsible are the ; parties of the other part? That is the nubbin. Treaties must not be used to weaken us. We want no more frightened statesman kowtowing to a Hitler in a desperate hour of evasion. j For a good many years to come, we must Realize that mankind is still involved in an Evolutionary process which has not obliterated his grasping for power and his chicaneries in reaching a position to grasp. f The balance of power is the best collateral for our loans, our contracts, our commitments. That may sound hard-j boiled, but it makes a profound lot of i sense in our book. Could former Secre-! tary Kellogg return, he would certainly ! discover that his earnest and devoted I efforts have coursed a lane with a good : many turns that amounted perhaps to actual twists. (OonUnued from Pate One) Resort Damage Estimates Soar Blvd.. a new wall, recently built bv the town at the estate of Mrs. Flagler Matthews in return for a riRht-of-way, was partially tumbled over. Up and down the resort water front, bath houses and private cabanas were casualties of the storm, and it is doubtful if any remain undamaged, while many have vanished. In West Palm Beach, in addition to outside yard damage, roofs constituted the chief loss, especially on the small, cheaper type of houses, while officials gave credit on both sides of the lake to improved construction since 1928 for the small amount of struc tural damage. $600,000 loss in roofs reoorted by City Building Inspector Wilson K. Rowan, Morrison Homes, veterans' housing project, was unroofed, and W. E. Poland. Jr.. head of the West Palm Beach Housing Authority. sought Federal approval to begin repairs. Southndge and Dunbar Village, he reported, stood up well. City-owned properties, including the incinerator, stood up quite well, though widespread park dam- ace was apparently chalked up. One bad sewer cave-in was reported on Broadway, and some streets suffered severe water damage encountered, the toppling of the WJNO tower, designed to with stand a 125-mile wind, was cited as the outstanding example in West Palm Beach. Only about one- By Drew Pearson WASHINGTON Don't be fooled by all the hurrah, hullabaloo and headlines now coming out of the Justice 'Department's Anti-trust Division. Actually, the rash of anti-trust suits now splashed across the front pages don't mean much. Most of them were prepared two years ago by abler, more energetic Wendell Berge, predecessor of the new anti-trust chief. John Sonnett. Take, for instance, indictment of real estate boards. Fourteen months ago, this same suit was recommended to Attorney General Tom Clark by Berge, but Clark vetoed it. Tangling with the real estate boys at that time wasn't popular. Now that President Truman has thrown the harpoon into the real estate lobby, however, the Justice Department has dusted off Berge's 14-month-old case and brought an indictment. ' . Even so, the indictment doesn't mean too much. For present anti-trust division chair-warmers pulled punches.' The indicted no individual real estate men, only the real estate boards, and you con t send a board or corporation to jail. That's why real estate moguls aren't really worried. Other recent cases pulled out of the Berge hat are Eastman Technicolor, prepared 18 months ago, and the tire price-fixing conspiracy, prepared two years ago. Another important Case stilt not out of the hat is against Wall Street's investment bankers. This case was all set to go when Wendell Berge resigned, but six months have dragged by with nothing happening. Chief Duster Sonnett The man who has been dusting off old Berge cases and dolling them up with flashy headlines is amiable, uninspired John Sonnett the only man who ever licked John L. Lewis but got no credit for it. Soh-nett, who dresses like a poem but doesn't act like one handled the Supreme Court injunction against Lewis and eventually expects to go up to Wall Street. There he has been promised a legal job representing Jim Forrestal's old banking firm, Dillon. Read During the war. poem-dressing Sonnett was aide to Secretary of the Navy Forrestal. which makes it ! just a bit embarrassing to bring the long-delayod anti-trust suit against Forrestal's and other Wall Street firms. In addition John Cahill, under whom Sonnett once worked, is now defending Dillon. Read. So life is no bed of forget-me-nots for Johnny Sonnett. Nevertheless, he swears he'll prosecute his old Wall Street friends and perhaps he will. GOP Publicity Search The Republican National Committee isn't shouting it from the housetops, but looking round for a high-powered new publicity man, it finally approached Hal Leyshom. executive editor of Jim Cox's Miami News, offered him $25,000. Flattered, but amused, Leyshom replied: "I suppose you realize that I work for Governor Cox. who was Democratic candidate for President in 1920. Also I am a close friend of your effective critic. Senator Pepper. In addition, you would discover, if I took the job that, during the war, I was executive officer to Col. Jack Redding, publicity chief of the Democratic National Committee. " The Republicans decided to look for somebody else. . j Merry-Go-Round I New War Production Board Industrious Avercll C Harriman, the secretary of Commerce who is revers- Ol ing his father's role of Wall Street highbinder, is HU"-"J ""mi'iR u new minis iui mc maisuaii plan.

S. material sent to Europe gets into wrong channels, is wantonly wasted. First thing the Greek government did with U. S. $$$ from the Truman plan was to buy a big consignment of fancy neck ties . . .

Here in West Paim Beach, 75 homeless families were being sheltered in the Methodist Church, which has been designated as a permanent shelter by the Red Cross. Permanent shelter for local negro families has been set up at the Woman's Club and a number of families and homeless were being taken care of by the Red Cross.

At another place this one on Datura St. just west of the FEC tracks. Conyers found "a man standing in the lee of a doorway. The man was watching a broken store front nearby. He asked Slim what he should do if anv attempts were made to loot the place. Conyers' answer was simple and direct: "If you haven't got a gun," he snapped, "take a club to anyone you catch trying that. Don't fool with 'em!" Then we went west to Rosemary and thence east on Clematis. And it was then I saw things I had never seen before and probably wouldn't have believed if I hadn't seen it. Store fronts were laid open to the weather as neatly as one could imagine. Show window contents were strewn along the street. Glass littered the whole area and boards used in apparently hasty boarding up were scattered like big jack-straws in the wind. Some jewelry stores, their valuable contents probably thought safe, were wide open and in one instance Conyers told me of picking up a clock from the street some distance from the store from which he was sure it had been blown.
