A-6-INDEPENDENT c.H,,*«,r..,,o,i«r RAY TUCKER STRICTLY PERSONAL -L.A.C. S AYS:New Dollars «w (Continued From Page A-l) vantage o£ Long fiVach. This calk lor sound organization and financial backing.' Th.Long Beach Convention Bureau is having a one-day membership drive this Thursday for this purpose. * * " - . * . . . ' . · This drive will reach but a small portion of local citizens. It will be primarily to reach th* merchants. eating and drinking places and hotels and motels which profit most from convention visitors. But actu : ally, everyone in the community profits . from , new dollars brought into ihe city.. ., . · . . These dollars circulate through the hands of business owners to their employes who pay it out. in rent, food, clothing, taxes, gasoline and f6r hundreds of other purposes in the city. B^it there is an even greater competition for conventions .among Southern California cities! Santa Monica is compiling its new auditorium -this year. Disneyland with its .. new hotels is becoming popular. Palm Springs, Las , Vegas and other resorts have their convention bureaus constantly at work. * * · * . - ' · These are important factors to downtown Long Beach in particulra. It is there the 'visitors. circulate and patronize establishments in the area. Considering the concentration, the'.SlO million spent is far greater than would result from two or three large industries. For that reason every effort should be laken by the city and local business men to advance the convention program. ' Under the mahagem«nt- of Howard Jones a well planned progranf is in effect. Results, of the .past Years are encouraging. It is vital that the city and business interests suppqrt and enlarge this program. Bringing new dollars to town is liko a blood transfusion to an anemic person. If we keep the new dollars coming, it will greatly retard our present trend toward becoming anemic.-- L. A. C.

Last week, a Catholic bishop, a Jewish rabbi, and a Methodist bishop got together and gave out a state- · ment blasting Senator Knowland's right-to-work proposal: Claimed it was a union-busting gimmick, pure and simple. Poor Senator Knowland. Not only must he campaign against Edmund G. "Pat" Brown and his Democratic rabble, but against the host . of heaven also. But Bill Knowland is- smart enough to know that angels can't vote. So we ought to have a good battle ·* in November's election. And may the righteous man win. Amen. - G. M. ATCHISON REMEMBER In reply to P. A. Dalby on President Eisenhower's approval of "John Foster Dulles, we should all go along with the President on this issue in spite of the fact that Dulles is the primary reason our foreign affairs are in -such a mess.. After -all, the novelty of the President taking a definite stand 'on an issue, with-' out resorting to selection of a committee. to investigate, or a promise of action in the future, is certainly too, good to miss. So, P. A. Dalby, please bear with Ike and our '-'gone with the wind" secretary of state--they'll be out in '60. .NEWCHY MIGNONE 6063 Hersholt Ave., Lakewood, California.

Attorney General .-William P. Rogers, who represents the administration in negotiations . with . Rep.. Eman- 1 uel C e l l e r , J u d ' l c i a r y ' Comni it t'e e chairman, be- ' lieves. that a constitutional amendment is. required' .for c r e a t i n g a commission , . t h . a t would . decide'whether a president is . unable to function. Speaker Sam Rayburn originally opposed any action. Now, he has, approved, or agreed not to block, a' bill' establishing a disability panel. But t'-.e cautious. Texan wants . . no' "tinkering" with the Constitution. He contends that Congress has full authority to make ' this revision. But · others believe that the Rayburn-Celler 'plan would cbn- s t i t u t e congressional infringement on" the executive powers. ' · · - · · ' » * * * ·* · POLITICS ENTERS PICTURE. These are admittedly healthy and understandable doubts. But politics creeps in with respect to the composition of the presidential disability judges. Attorney General · Rogers, as well- as Republicans generally insist that-it'consists of members of the ailing president's cabinet.- Naturally, they would -be more sympathetic to the,chief executive, and possibly more reluctant to declare that- he should 'step aside .temporarily. · '. ·- - . More important- from the political standpoint, they would, belong'to-.the same party as the man in the White House, and share his philosophy of .government. And'the : vice presidem; who assumed command by reason of and-as a result of their decision would presumably.' consider himself beholden to .them. He would, in short, be grateful. . ' · * * * * GOP VIEW PLAN UNFAIR. Speaker Rayburn apparently believes that a cabinet board would tend to favor · the president and perhaps be too slow to remove him temporarily. In a crisis", such · delay could be dangerous. Rayburn also remembers that Woodrow Wilson fired a. cabinet 'member, Secretary of ·State' Robert Lansing, because he presumed to call a cabinet meeting while Wilson . was -' ill. * * * . * IN THE ORIGINAL PLAN Rayburn and- Chairman Celler thought that the commission should be made up of members-of Congress, with a single cabinet repcfsenta- . tive^-the, secretary of state. The Congressional delegation. under their, plan would, consist o f ' the speaker, . the House majority .and minority leaders, the president'.pro tern of -the Senate, and 'the two leaders^ of that body. . Such a '.group, however, would have four Democrats and three Republicans, when: the Democrats'control Con- .gress,' - This arrangement strikes the.GOP.-ers as;-im- · practical, undemocratic and unfair. Arid that situation would .prevail time, and again, inasmuch'as the opposition frequently captures Congress in an Administration's waning years. /: - ' .

"May I .ask, Mr. Doerfer, what- other expenses' you "incurred at White · Sulphur; Springs " which the . association, did not pay?" . Congressman Bennett ' of Michigan', promptly "interrupted. . . . ' "When you're arrested, it · is the duty of'the. police offi- ·' cer to say why you we^e arrested 'and the date' and so forth," B e n n e t t declared. "That is the 'duty of the police officer.

"Is'it the'conten'tiori.of.the members of; this subcommittee that 1 can only inquire" ' ] into cases "that are. actually, known by me," inquired Schwartz, "or may I inquire 'into cases within the personal knowledge of the witness?" "The ruling.of;the,chair is · that you can '-inquire · of' the witness on all of the subjects under the jurisdiction of the committee, because he may be the only one to possess that knowledge," ruled Chair-. · man 'Moulder, who has consistently-favored a full investigation.

' "If charged with misconduct," he interjected,' "the alleged..misconduct should be .presented." Rep. John Moss of Sacramento, who .has ..consistently contended- the public 'has a' right to the-facts,, reminded Hale that Schwartz was only' trying to get the facts regarding who. paid what to whom, not trying to pass on .Doerfer's guilt. "I think we are, by .the continuous interruptions, far more prolonging-the questioning than .we are -expediting the hearing,""Moss. said. Finally, Doerfer asked .; ifor- 30 days to supply Schwartz with a.. full list ; of the trips he had taken . .at the expense _of .the TV · Industry.- .In. return, . he . ·· asked that Schwartz turn , over to him any facts In the subcommittee's : possession .' about trip* he .mayhave .. forgotten about. · * * - * · * · · · FCC COMMISSIONERS DUCK'-- Moulder, suggested that · the same travel, information -be 1 supplied-by the j other six FCC commissioners: At this, Commissioner-'Rosel.
