Statesmen Could Learn From Joe DiMaggio Just when you're ready to give up looking for * big story without a Conir mtinist hidden somewhere in the pile of type, along comes Joe DiMaggio. Joe proceeds to carve himself an unforgettable niche in 19'I9 history, and , there's not a thing in the world that • Stalin or Vishinsky or any of their comrades can do about it. Of course, making R splash is nothing new to Joltin' Joe, long a fixed star in the baseball heavens. But this time it's different. The big fellow's been having trouble with a bad heel and a lot of p«ople are starling to wonder if he'll ever play again. Maybe Joe is worried, too. He decides to force the issue a little. He gets a special shoe made for his troublesome right foot. Thus equipped, he edges his way back into the Mew York Yankees' lineup and goes up to Boston for a meeting with the hot Boston Red Sox team. It's a crucial spot for DiMag. He's out of condition from inaction and hasn't seen any fancy pitching for months. And here he is, facing a flashy new Red Sox pitcher. Joe passes his first test willi a ringing single and romps over the plate on a teammate's homer. Next lime up he minds a male on base ahead of him. Now he slams a drive over the left field wall lo count two runs and give the Yanks' their margin in a 5 to 4 victory. The fans and sportswriters cheer the hero's comeback showing. But it isn't enough for Joe, who wants things a bit more definite. The second day out, the Red Sox leap into a 7 to 1 lead early and seem sure to win. A confident Boston hurlcr walks a couple of Yanks in Hie fifth, and up comes DiMaggio again. He plants a big smash over that left wali for his second homer of the series niul his team is hack in the game. ^Soon after that the Yanks make it a 7-7 tie and Joe has another turn. Result: a screaming drive lhat clears a BO-foot- high wall and screen and wins Ihe game for New York. l.ike the others, the third game is close. Leading 3 to 2 in Ihe seventh in-" ing, the Yanks get two men aboard the hases. Once more Joe steps lo the plate, this time against Mel Parnell, Boston ace. With a count of three balls and two strikes, DiMag crashes a terrific liner to' left lhat smacks an electric light tower for a three-run homer and n third straight Yankee triumph. That's the story. In three games, Joe hits four home runs, all decisive. He collects five hits altogether and drives home nine runs. Single-handed he dumps a sizzling Boston team on its ear. And remember, he's otit of practice and he's got a bad heel. Joe'» success was achieved in th« tight Uttk b*Mb*!l world, wh»r« *VMtJ don't rtaemble* too do««ly tht blner realm of national and world affair*. In Joe'i world, action i» direct and conclusive. Usually when you play Bin* inningi you get a result. It it cle»r—no- body argues about what nine or teven means. Each day'a effort produces decision, neat and complete. f Our statesmen might say that, given some talent, achievements in this compact world of Joe's aren't exactly startling. After all, it's only a game. But we wouldn't agree. Skill and grace and wit and courage are always a lesson, no matter how small their arena. It might be a healthy thing for some of our timorous statesmen to take a good look at Joltin' Joe, a spunky fellow all the way. Legal Boom The anti-ti'uxl suit brought by the government against the DuPont industrial empire is expected to last for years. Whatever the outcome, the case ought to take up a good deal of the slack in the legal profession. We shouldn't be hearing about any surplus of lawyers for a while. VIEWS OF OTHERS War Controls Going— New Ones Cooking Up. A headline in Sunday's Democrat, said. "Government Control Web Gradually Is Dissolving." But the Article referred only to some remaining war powers over credit, bank reserves and certain commodities for export. Meanwhile, new and farther-reaching control plans are bubbling on the Washington political fire. No, they aren't offered as such. You have to look Into them to see the boss with the big stick behind the beaming Santa Glaus whiskers. One ol these pltns is the proposal for federal nationwide aid to schools. This looks, on the surface, like a big-hcarUti mo-ve. To hear vts proponents talk, you'd think that nobody with a soul that an earth worm wouldn't regard as Inadequate could oppose such a noble design. But prominent citizens are pointing out the fake Santa Claua whiskers. The other day, Gen. Dwight f>. Elsenhower, president of Columbia University, Issued a warning. He approved federal aid' for schools in states which cannot maintain good, enough schools themselves. More than that, ne said, would add to (he bureaucracy which can destroy our American system. Now, former President Herbert Hoover expresses the same view. He declares that federal aid to the schools In all the states, wealthy and poor, is a "porlc barrel" melhod, which would open the way to bureaucratic control over the schools of the nation. Why, of course, that would be the result ot the federal government taxing slates which are able to support schools, and then giving them back some or their money. The only gain would be to bureaucracy—more officials and power. Mr. Hoover see.? danger to our free system In Die whole structure of federal "grants-in-ald" to state and local ^governments. So do many other able-minded Americans. Haven't we just had a sample of the risk In Arkansas? Only * couple of weeks ago, our state Welfare Department agreed with federal officials to keep its spending secret— from you, the taxpayer, who puts up the moneyi Did you protest? Do you really care about the freedom that so many brave men died to give you? Don't be fooled, power over you In Washington Is growing. By grants-in-sld it is bringing slate government under Its thumb. Secret use ot this power already has been established. We'd better watch federal aid. Some ol It Is necessary. But if we let it extend Into more and more ol our affairs, we're going to wind up In the same socialism that, In Europe, Is now a pensioner on our earnings. And there will be nobody to rescue us. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT. Dulles to.the Senate When senator Wagner of New York resigned, we said that the American people would get to see Die kind of man Gov. Dewey would choose for preferment In high office. He has now made Ym first choice and perhaps his only one on the national level. His choice Is John Poster Dulles who will serve in the Senate until December. In the 19*8 campaign, Mr. Dulles was Oov. Dewey'* adviser on foreign affairs, a field In which many persons regard him as unusually competent. Since it was a foregone conclusion that Mr. Dulles would have been the Secretary ol State in a Dewey administration, his appointment as Senator is a natural one. la a lime when foreign affairs Is a prime consideration, the qualifications of John roster Dulle* should make him a particularly useful Interim Senator. Gov. Dewey has made good use of his appointing authority. —ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH SO THEY SAY 'Look, One Finger!' North-South Korean Dispute Grows Into Rather Warm War Th* DOCTOR SAYS Br Kdnln P.

A few sample direct quotes will give you the drift: "He is the 59th attorney general," the press release begins. One gathers that Mr. Clark must be th« greatest one since the last one anyway. Tlmt was Francis Biddle. "During Mr. Clark's four years us attorney general, the scope of departmental activities and responsibilities has broadened considerably." the report continues.

From this northern region North Korean militia across the boundary and tr tc iioid operations during epidemics Careful study has shown that such operations, when performed during an epidemic, tend to increase the danger of contracting infantile paralysis in its most serious form.

This leads somewhat naturally to the question, and swimming places has not been settled. Some doctors think there Is more danger from contacts which children make when they stay home .than when they are at school. Also Uicre is. a difference of opinion on Hie danger of contracting polio from swimming pools. Swimming itself is not considered harmful but if the water Is contaminated by sewage and human pollution, there may be a definite danger.
