And American public opinion, always unpredictable, is never more baffling than when it provides the answer. 'This is not meant as any reflection on Gen. Douglas MacArthur, 'who has been the winner in the last two'years. It 'is simply that most of us, if asked to give a guess as to America's No. 1 pin-up boy without Doctor Gallup's aid, would probably come up with a different answer. Gen. Mac-Arthur's popularity assets are not hard to find. His. role in the war was unmatched for sustained drama. The long struggle back from defeat, accomplished with consummate skill against tremendous odds, was something to fire the imagination. And certainly the general's colorful personality and handsome presence do not detract from his popular appeal. Yet General MacArthur has not set foot on. continental American soil in. many years. His present assignment is a passive one. It is safe to say that few of his ad- pikers have ever seen him. So it must be that Americans' gratitude and admiration are less fickle than we might sometimes suppose. This 'conclusion is borne out by the fact that the second straight year Gen. Dwight Eisenhower took second place in the poll. But what of the other names in the top ten on the Gallup" list? They are Winston Churchill, Harry S. Truman, George C. Marshall, Eleanor Roosevelt James Byrnes, Pope Pius XII, Sister Kenny and Thomas E. Dewey, in that order. Last year Mr. Churchill was in. fifth place, behind President Truman a*nd Mrs. Roosevelt. Now. a year further removed from Britain's highest office and the object of increased criticism at' home and abroad, his American popularity has increased. Last year Henry A. Wallace and Harold Stassen \vere among the top ten. Have Americans grown more conservative in the past 12 months'.' Before an answer is made it should also be noted that Herbert Hoover, who held sixth place on last year's list, is now missing. There are other items of interest. Last year Mr. Byrnes, as Secretary of State, was in tenth place. Now, retired, he is in seventh, ahead of Pope Pius, whose name did not appear in last year's first tea. All of us are hit by shadows. A of us experience days when we fee down m heart an<J spirit. No always do we find an immediat remedy—but there is one that promise will not fail anyone, t wit: Start, in some way, to lil someone else who is down—up! ] will surprise you how soon yo are not down, but up. ' I have had my downs and ups— many of each. I had them \vhe I used to run an elevator in Ch cage's Central Y. M. C. A.. 1 1 ha this down feeling before 1 starte to write this Talk. But just the the mail man brought me a lette from an old newspaper friend, wh wrote me-most encouragingly. Hi letter warmed my heart .and lifte ne right out of my "dumps." wondered why m y friend, whom had not seen for a long time ha the urge to write. Perhaps he too, was a little down, and wanle< to be lifted, as T am sure he-wa by his kind • act. 1 have known •», multitude of ( peo pie in my time, and among them have been many who were foreve doing some kind, thoughtful thin: for others. And they alway seemed happy —never themselve low or discouraged. Thank Goc it doesn't take money alone to lif up people. A kind thought and postage, stamp will do it, with th aid- of the railroad, the aeroplam and the postman. So—when you get down, think of someone to whbi.i you woulc like to give a lift. A letter, some flowers, a book, or a telegram wil uork wonders. It always has, anc always will. The bigger a persoi is the more appreciative he is. AI of us have a nostalgia to some degree. Our minds, in middle anc later life, creep back to earlier days —to simple things that gave u joy and enthusiasm for life. A re turn to those simple things, som of -them enacted anew; is in itsel a lift in spirit. You may sometimes be down— but not out! Bear that in mind We all have our troubles, but it ii so much easier to dump them—to ?et rid of them—than to carrj them. More of us ought to traye that train that might be called "Happiness. Unlimited!" Tomorrow Mr. Adams will talk on the subject: "Do Something About It!"

Senator Vandenberg Made Statesmanlike Presenta tion of Greek Situation at Secret GOP Meeting energy, voiced the thoughts of • Washington, March IS — Forty- four o£ the 51 Republican Senators attended the very off-the-recorci session of the Republican conference, to hear Foreign Relations Chairman Arthur Vandenberg ex- • plain the Greek-Turkish situation. So anxious were they to prevent leaks from the secret session that even the' Senate employes, ordinarily on hand for GOP conferences, were locked out of the room. Senator, Vandenberg opened the blue ribbon session with a long, able explanation of the Near East emergency, making it plain that he feels the President must be supported in his request for 400 million dollars to block Commu nism in Greece and Turkey. Vandenberg was subjected to a relentless barrage of questions from GOP colleagues and handled himself well. Sometimes, however, he fell back on this stock- answer "That's an important question to be considered. If you will let me have it in writing. [ will see to it th'at it is answered during our hearings. It is information which the Senate should have/' During the entire conference, only two Senators—AVayne Morse of Oregon and Ray Baldwin of Connecticut—pledged all-out support for the. Presidential recommendations. The majority of others indicated by their questioning that they luive some doubt about the 'advisability of U. & intervention in Near East politics. In /act, there was a rumbling from 'the GOP Senators \vhen Vandenberg mentioned that in case the loan was not approved by Congress by March 31. an "advance" to Greece of 100 million might be made by (lie RFC.

If we agree to provide these moneys., it seems to me we'll have to decide to go all the way. The only further step is war." * Senators William Jenner of Indiana and Bob'Taft of Ohio were highly critical- of the administration's handling of the matter. . "This is a momentous step we are asked to take," said Jenner an ex-Air Force officer. "Information that has come to me indicates tnat the administration has known since last October that the British would, have to pull out of these areas—yet w e are not told about it until early March." "I understand." Taft added, "that Foreign Minister Bevin told Secretary Byrnes last October this would happen, yet we were not told a word of it." "if that is true." replied Vanden- iJerg. "I certainly was not told of •N'o attempt was made to lay- down a formal GOP position; the meeting was . purely informative On e thing a large bloc of GOP Senators still wants to know | s where will the money come from to aid Greece and Turkey—later Korea.
