In a recent appearance before the Senate Appropriations Committee General ttrad- ley, head of ihe Veterans Administration, cited some figures on this point. The number of veterans, veterans' wives, veterans' children and veterans' dependents in this country has now Beached a total of -!f> 000,000. In another decade, General Bradley estimates, this group will number 62,500,000. or approximately 40 per cent of the population of the United States. Any group of Americans as larg* as this will obviously have enormous power as a pressure group, rf it acts in unison. A very much smaller group of veterans after World War I, wielded a great deal of political influence. But there is one thing which the veterans will hardly be able to forget or ignore this time. This is that the cost of any special benefits which they persuade Congress to grant veterans and their families, as a. group, will largely have to come out of the pockets of the veterans themselves. If they comprise 40 per cent of the population, they will presumably have to pay 40 per cent of the taxes. That should be enough to convince them that it is only common sense to think of themselves as citizens and taxpayers first and veterans afterwards. Bridge of Understanding The Bridge in itself is an itispir in^ thing, outside its great utility It is the connecting link betweer dties, slates, countries and com munities. Hut the greatest Bridge 01 all is ihat one that brings' to call it the Hridge of Understand' That's the Bridge all the world wants to sec the fiuarreling Na tions of this earth, cross, and that soon! hut yen can't carry hat* intolerance, revenge, or mistrust amiss this kind of a Bridge. It will give way in the middle- and both sides will remain divided a.< Ik-fore. One thing about this kind of a Bridge—the Kridui. 1 or Understanding-is that it can br ; erected ovei night—and even in a few minutes! Lawyers are architects of this sort ol Bridge. They seek to have their rlkMHs use it, in preference to the lighting ring! And physicians use it to get tiif-ir patients across to health and happiness. Dr. Frederick Loomis ha.« another name for it. He calls it "The Third Component.." If people could only erect this Bridge of Understanding, whenever a problem was presented for solution, and use it, there soon wouldn't be any problem ai all. It's an essential tl ' between friends, in the family circle, and in public life. Indeed it is the only Bridge that the United .Va." tion$ Organisation can use to bring about a genuine One World Cross that Bridge and all other problems become secondary. Why is it that so few" fail to cross this Bridge? Xot because it isn't safe. It's the -safest Bridge in the world! It's always practical, too—a thing that most people are 100 blind to see. What an eye- opener, however, when they do get their eyes open—and see! They know then that this Bridge actually exists. The crossing of this Bridge of Understanding i s an event in itself, but the joy and supreme satisfaction come about after the Bridge is crossed — Hk e a just peace after a tragic war. Or like the dawning of truth, after error has been routed! Tomorrow Mr. Adams will talk on tlie subject: "Heart Autobiog- Washington Merry-Go-Round (By DREW PEARSON) Marines Detailed As Servants At Navy Officer's Party —CIO Official Tells Phil Murray That Industry Sits On Hands Washington, April 2 — Using Beginning To Pinch enlisted men as servants seems to be catching among certain brass hats. This column recently revealed how Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Alexander Vandergrift had used enlisted Marines as bartenders, hat-check, boys, and doormen at-cocktail parties, despite Marine Regulation 553, which states that "under no circumstances shall any enlisted man be employed as a servant." Gen. Vandergrift, however, is not the only sinner. It now develops that Col. Harold E. Rosecrans, officer in charge of the Marines guarding the- Washington Naval Gun Factory, also drafted enlisted men. He issued orders detailing two - --, Marine sergeants, one corporal and i unions to strike, warning- nine privates to act as hat-check | lhem lhat if lhe >" do - Congress will boys and doormen and to park cars cnu:k down on a!1 labor, at a party given for high-ranking ' -^ urr ^>' told the conference the officers by Adm. Glen B Davis same thin ? happened in his nego- •• - tuitions with U. S. Steel for a new contract. He said that as a result, strikes are beginning to look more and more inevitable. In the end. Murray sent out a call for the top 250 CIO officials to meet in Washington ten days hence to chart a new united strategy to force industry to negotiate GOP Likes Pink Elephant Some shoddy tilings have been secret sessions. This unusual, .un- parliamentary practice has been protested by a fellow Republican, Rep. Gerald Landis of Indiana, who has reminded Hartley that the Democrats didn't treat Republicans that way when they were in the majority. CIO Strategy Meeting CIO President Philip Murray a very significant secret held _.„..... strategy meeting "of te n top'c'lO officials in Pittsburgh last week at which he got reports on new contract negotiations in the steel auto and electrical industries. In each of these. Murray was cold, industry is refusing to bargain collectively for new contracts. His henchmen reported that management sits tight, defies commanding officer of the Naval Gun Factory. IR charge of the servant detail was warrant officer Ernest T. Bean. The men were not asked if they were willing to serve on this detail, nor were they paid anything for their services." And while Marines were resentful at being relegated to the position of servants for General Vandergrift, the Marines at the Naval Gun Factory were even more indignant at -waiting on a Navy Admiral. Col. Rosecrans has gone even farther, and has used a detail uf done under the spoils system which operates on the Jacksonian theory that to the political victor belong the patronage spoils.

PHILLIPS (Released by The Associated Newspaper*) Science and Hie Weather Vest Pocket Essays By COL. STOOPNAGLE Soap boys their So;ip is stuff that little ion't like to wash behind ears with, unless. There's .something about suap vhich has bothered me ever since was old enough to let things other me: what does the Pullman Jompany do with the little pieces hat are left over after people have nly used them a few times'.' Do •ou suppose they put 'em all into big vat, boil them so they come ut one great big cake and then ell the cake? to people who wash he Statue of Liberty, or hippo- otamuses, or railroad coaches? at might not be a bad idea, but have a better one ... I think. lake those little cakes hollow, S o couple of washings will make em disappear entirely. Then the oap which isn't inside in the mpty space could be used to make lore hollow cakes, and the soap, Inch isn't inside THOSE hollow cakes could be . . . well, let's get along to something more complicated. I know of a smart little boy who .said a very naughty word once, and his mother told him if lie ever said "Gee whix./ikers" again, she'd wash his mouth out with laundry soap. So the little boy sneaked the wrapper off a hunk of laundry soap and wrapped it around a piece of taffy the same size. Then he went up to his mother and said: "Gee wliizzikers." Shocked 'beyond words, the mother grabbed the package she thought was soap, tore off the cover and made the little boy stick his tongue out. Then she proceeded to wash his mouth out good and plenty with the "laundry soap." The little boy pretended to hate it. and cried and cried. He never told his mother the secret until he was 21 years old, and did we laugh!! 1 have invented several things in connection with soap. For example, my patetided Suspenderoo — soap filled with bubbles of helium gas, so it'll float in the air ABOVE the water in your tub, and above the, floor in shower baths. Then I also have soap with wrinkles in it, for washing old men's foreheads. ] have, too, a new laundry soap, but it's no good to anyone unless he happens to have a Laundry h e wants washed. -Mark Twain's famous crack, "Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody ever does anything about it," is a dead duck. Plenty is being done about it. In fact, the General Electric Company and the United States Army Signal Corps have signed contracts to do something about it. i'apern were signed the other day for a war on t'og, rain and snow in which science and Army B-2i) bombers will co-operate in an all-out drive to blitz bad weather. It will begin over aviation fields, with fog the number one foe. But General Hlectric predicts a day when the "manipulation of giant natural forces will control weather everywhere." We're really going after weather in a big way. The day when a bad spell could have its own way I is nearing an end. That old ineauy, ! Fog, may encounter "No Trespassing Signs. This Means You" over every airfield in the land. * * * "Scram-" is the word, and removing the overcast from an airpor^ may soon be almost as simple as' shifting a scene on a revolving stage. * « * It all began when General Electric men flew over Greylock .Mountain in .Massachusetts last year, dropping six pounds of dry ice pellets at 1-5,000 feet, which' produced artificial snow. Experiments have continued until it may almost be said that science has weather in the bag. "There's a fog over our airport. Take an order to remove it right away," is about to become a routine message. « » * *- Ultimately a man who wants a fog can, by a reverse process, get it. A ski course operator can order his snow from General Electric direct. If your lawn is burning up, the time may come when you can wire a local weather service station and have a shower delivered the same day. The man of tomorrow, planning a picnic, a field day or a parade! will arrange with Schenectady for '. suitable weather. * » * AH of which, we suppose, represents wonderful progress. However, the outlook 'is not all milk and honey. We have moods where we like snow, and we don't want the man next door fixing to ruin a nice flurry just because he i.s not a snow lover. • » < We are an old April shower fancier. We like April showers. We could almost be called an addict. We do not intend to take it lying down when a lovely April shower approaches our hacienda and the old lady up the lane gets the Signal Corps and General Electric to break it up. "Brigadoon," which sent us into ecstasies when we saw it on the road a month ago, seemed even better to us at the Xew York opening. Our bet is that it will b e a dose second to "Oklahoma" in long-run records. Charming as it is. the adjective is being overworked by the critics, as it has more than that. IL has a real book tunes that are delightful without being in the Tinpau Alley mood and a quality that lifts the spirit A nation-wide phone strike is threatened again and Ima Dodo is on the phone all the while. She explains, "1 want to get all my kicks in to the complaint operator before the service is cut off." Ajax Cassidy says he got a letter from a man in Glocca Morra asking, "How are things in ChilHcothe Ohio?" We liked Joe H. Palmer's comment on a costly n'lly. "This filly for which John S." Phipps paid $54,000 at the Keeneland Sales looks splendid. So does $54.000." Not Necessary To Carry Cards Chief of Police .Wax W. Kickard was notified by F r e d Hallford, special agent of the Baltimore oflice of tho Federal Bureau of Investigation that the failure of men to carry a draft card no longer constitutes u violation of Federal law. Hallford 'said that persons who fail io carry a draft card should not bo referred to the FBI. The Selective Servic*.' law which required the carrying of a draft card at all times expired on, .March Ul. Chief Kickard said that although the actitMi would be entirely voluntary, it would lie a good idea for men to continue tu carry their cards since they provide an excellent means of identification.
