S. military aviation \vna j experiencing one of its worst safbly - yearn in history, the country's domestic e, commercial airlines were racking; up " their finest safety showing of all time, i; The airlines measure-safety by com£ putinfr thb number of fatalities per 100,000 "passenger miles" flown.. Their * old record, set in 1950, was 1.1 deaths I for each 100,000 passenger miles in the (' air. The new low in 1952 was an ama?.- 1 ing .38. This was accomplished despite a sAx- , aftle increase in total passenger mileage during the year, which fact naturally added considerably to the opportunities for fatal crashes. 'There was only one major mishap, costing more than '10 lives, in'the scheduled airlines' record book. , Certainly this achievement does not mean we shall never again see a flurry , of domestic air accidents like that which | occurred around the Newark Airport in \ the winter of 1951-52 or in the rugged ! year 1947. But it does Appear to be true that the gaps between big crashes are getting longer. All in aviation eagerly await the introduction of jets to commercial aviation, for the belief is strong that with jbl-driven aircraft the major .lines will , enter a new and far belter safety era. Experience in war and peace has shown that jet engines by and large arc much ; more reliable performers, for, they are much less complicated than propeller engines and much less likely to develop serious trouble. Pan American World Airways already has ordered some commercial jets for use a few years hence, but the domestic lines have not yet made the plunge. It can't happen too soon. The international carriers, incidentally, did not fare as well as the domestics. They had their worst safety year since 3946. Their passenger operations wtre at a record high (about one fourth the size of domestic operations), but crashes in Brazil, Puerto Rico and elsewhere marred what has in recent years been a spectacular safety performance. Yet, all in all, the signs of safety progress are marked. Evti-y air traveler will welcome'it if the pace can be maintained through the final days of propeller-driven airliners and into the coming jet age. Some Have More Sense SMI. Wayne Morse of Oregon, who bolted his party last fall to campaign for Gov«rnor Stevenson, brought a col- , JANTUKY •, im lapslble chair to th« Senttt'th*- day th« new Congress convened. H* wasn't iur« his GOP colleagues would gent him on thbir side of the aisle. Morse may not have intended it »o, but his little display was actually quit* symbolic of his political behavior. Hi* views sometimes an about as collapsible as the chair. In 1949 Morse called in a reporter he knew well and j<av« him a written statement of views on Republican liber- nlism in the Senate of that year. When it backfired, Morse just denied he'd ever madfc the statement. . From the first he hag always taken himself with desperate seriousness in the Senate. His long, legalistic arguments on a wide variety of topics have consumed untold man-hourx in the upper chamber. There .were' times when his colleagues might have suggested the Senate and Morse meet on alternate days. Morse's grave view of his own significance reflected itself in his 1952 bolt. Politicians have bolted before and that is their privilege. But few have gone so far as to assume their attitudes were still of commanding interest after the, election lias been decided in accord with contrary notions. Morse clings to the idea that the Nov. -I result proves General Eisenhower "fooled 34 million people" who voted for him. It is just possible the 34 million have more sense about their leaden than has this man who sees himself in such exaggerated perspective. Views- of Others Capitalism Is General It U Impm'tnnl to protect and preserve our capitalistic system not only becnuse It lias worked successfully but because there are 126,200.000 Investors In tlie United Stntes Hild Canada. The Soviet would destroy the capitalistic system and Ihftl's why Americans re.slst, Ijeenuse Its destruction would not. only wipe out the "blgn" but (lie "littles", as well. Sume of the large corporations have as many as a half to a million personfi, many of them widows, charllable foundations and «ome Institutions of learning, holding their 'stock*. In fact, any thrifty person can buy or sell stock In nationally known corporations, most of which are not under the.control of any Individual or small group of Individuals. 'r . T i V \ Even in the trucking industry which tint grown to mammoth proportions in our enviable transportation system, many ot Ihe drivers have purchased trucks and thereby become business men In their own right. Benjamin Fnlrless, crmi'niian of the Board of the ginnt U. S. ateel corporation recently stated that If nil of the employes of lhat company would Invest the cost of a top-price automobile, the employees would not only gain a controlling interest but own U. S. Steel outright and could opcrnle .It with executives ot their own choosing. ' ' Wltli millions of persons in all walks of lite, Including children and widows, having their savings Invested In corporate securities as well a> government bonds and bank savings, it U no wondc rlliat they should be vitally = concerned over the rtnngcrs of Inflation and the protection of the American way of life. Frugality' and work have made this nation strong economically and otherwise and It is with derision and scorn that Soviet Russia refers to our capitalistic system. Yes. It is « capitalistic system, but It has worked to the advantage of all thrifty individuals and Is responsible tor our might and ability to help other nations of the world that need ,and deserve our help. —Shelby (N.

And one of them Is that we are a religious people. — President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower. . The reason lor this political dop- so early in Hie session is lliat ma- bnth ' Congress are awfuly slim. The present House of Rcprc-'. sentntives stand- retn- Ed»» ing is 221 Republicans, 211 Democrats, one Independent — Frazier Reams of Ohio —and two Democratic vacancies paused by the deaths of Addlph Sabath of Illinois and Eugene Cox of Georgia. The Sennle standing is •48 Republicans, 47 Democrnts and one Independent — Wayne Morse of Oregon. Theoretically, a loss of four seats would cause the Republicans to lose control of Hie House, A loss ol two fients would cost them the Senate. II is political folklore that Ihe party'which wins control ot Congress In a presidential elccllon year loses some of Its congressional ma- lorlty slrcnglh In the following mld- lerm election. Rut this tradition is not always borne out by the record. In 1934 — two years after Prnnk- lln D. Roosevelt's flrsl election — the ^ Democrats actually gained strength In Congress. In Ihe Senate Ihe gain was 10 seats — from 59 to 6B. In the House it was nine seats — from 313 to 322. The Democrats also gained congressional strength in the 1950 election, two years after President Tru- man's' surprise 1918. victory. The Democratic Senate gain in 1950 was four seals — from 45 lo 49. The House gain was 44 seats — from 187 to 231. " III 1946 the Democrats lost control of the Senate, — true to midterm election form. Other mid-term elections in which the Democratic majorities were reduced were 1942 and 1938. In the 1930 election, in the middle of Herbert Hoover's tenn. the Republican majorities in in were cut down from 17 to one In the Senate and from 104 to six in the House. . So Ihe superstition nbout the party in power losing congressional strength In the mid-term election has worked four out of the last six times. This means that if the Eisenhower administration is to carry out its lull four-year program, it must break the Jinx and repeal Ihe Dem : ocratic record of 1934.-That is, the Eisenhower program — at least in the beginning-. The number of "Els- enhower Democrats" in Congress is. far greater than the number of Republicans who will vote with the Democrats. Major Issues U'lll Reveal Lineup How big this coalition of conservative Democrats and Republicans Is can only be guessed at today. Some estimates have put the conservative majority at 55 to 60 in the Senate, as opposed lo 36 to 41 senators of a move liberal Inclination. In the House, estimates average around 250 to 275 conservatives, as opposed to 160 to 185 liberals.- If these estimates are at all close. President-elect Eisenhower can count on working majorities of from 14 to 24 in the Senate, and 55 to 115 in Ihe House. But H wil take n test vote on some niajor issue to show how the teams line up. What this issue will be cannot be told with certainly now. Approval or disapproval of a new Korean policy Is a likely bet. Other pos- Kirk Douglas Gene Tierney Gene, "He talks only about Pier Angeli.

There are half a (lozort He^th^ resignations or appointments of congressmen to judgeships or other ht^h offices in nn average year. Vacancies of this kind could throw control of Congress from one party to the other in the next two years. Figures on the small Republican majorities in the new B3rd Congress are misleading in one sense. The reason is that bigger majorities of representatives nnd senators of both parties wil probably support the 1. Price, wage and rent controls expire on April 30. The possibility of a row between President Eisenhower and the conservative Republican majority in Congress, as led by Senator Taft, has been widely speculated on. But it may not come off. A good, cooperative relationship between President-elect Eisenhower and the Congress in the next two years could easily pave the' way for Increasing the Republican majorities in 195J. Sunday SC/JGOI Lesson — W. K. Ollroj. D. D. Written for N'EA Service What did it mean to follow Jesus when He was here on earth among men? . - . The Gospels reveal that to lollow Jesus did not mean the same thing to all except that xipon all who accepted dlsclpleshlp, the obligation was plain to obey His teachings and 1 following the way of lire that He taught and manifested in His example. But Just as surely AS'that to some, following Jesus meant close companionship and special dlsclplcshlu with Its extreme demands for courage and sacrifice, to others It meant remaining In their own communities and returning to their homes. To a scribe, apparently more jlncere than some of his fellow- scribes who y.ealouely wanted to follow Him whithersoever He went. Jesus discouraged his outburst of zeal by reminding him of all that such a following meant. "The loses have holes." He said, "and the birds ot the air liave nests; but the Son of Man hath no where to lay His heart." There is no Indl- c-nlion that Jesus questioned the scribe' sincerity. Evidently, however. He did question his fitness for that special dtsclpleshlp. The fitness He had In mind Is exemplified In men like Peler and in Ihe brothers James and John who replied lo a supreme test. "We are able." See Matthew 8:19, 20 and Matthew 20:22. To another (Mallhow 8:81. 22), who wanted to follow In that close way but who first wanted to go and bury his father, apparently postponing his atlachmcnt until after his father's death, Jesus replied In the seemingly harsh words: "Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead." attenua?ft)g circumstances which Jesus may have known, the words in their very harshness emphasized the rigorous and exacting nature of a special dtscipleshtp for which not even all good nnd wcll-llitentioricd men were fitted. I think (hut .'the same thing is true today. Fonnany ot us to follow Jesus means lo accept the way of life that He exemplified, lo follow in the place where our tile is cost, perhaps in n humdrum and commonplace environment devoid of the Incentive and stimulus of the companionship of a chosen group. To live the Christian life in the home, the workshop or place of business, and in one's communlly, is not always easy. It calls for fnith and courage, even if one lacks the fitness for some special dlsclpleship. We cannot all be such, but we may glory In those of special saint- llness, faith, and achievement, who are today's apostles. I have been reading 'of such one in a recent issue of Time. He was a Roman Catholic missionary In Korea. Bishop Byrne^ who when the Communists Invaded Seoul, refused to leave those to whom heihad devoted hi* life and ministry, accepting peril and now probably martyrdom. Jesus would choose men'like him for the inner circle. Such heroes of the faith have not been of any one UACOBY ON BRIDGE Outcome of Game It Decided by Playeri BY OSWALD JACOBT Written for NEA Service What would today's hand be the outcome regular bridge game?
