Twelve THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 29, 1952. Rankin Can Cool Off After Furious Pace By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON W— John Rankin will have time to cool off now. For most of his life he's been as active and blazing as a man with a box of matches on fire in his hip pocket. Rankin. the tireless champion of white supremacy who had his hand called on the floor of the House for throwing around words like "Kike" and "Negro" won't be back next year. Rankin says he always uses the word "Negro," but his pronunciation sometimes makes it sound more like "niggra," a circumstance which once led former Rep. Vito Marcantonio (ALP-NY) to raise a point of order that Rankin had called singer Paul Robeson a "Nigger Communist." Speaker Raybum ruled than Rankin said '"Negro Communist". Rankin has been a member ol the House from Mississippi for 32 years. This week the voters of his state turned him down for renom- ination in favor of a fellow-congressman, Thomas Abernethy, who is 49. Rankin, still as lively as a boy at 70, is one of those old men who never seem bruised by the shoving around time gives them. Unlike some of his ponderous fellow-members, far younger, Rankin could be on his feet in an eye- blink for a fight with his mouth or his fists. Size didn't faze him. His fellow-members, presidents or even the Supreme Court were all targets for his tongue and his tern- He was one of the most active Communist-hunters of his time, a pursuit he developed as a leading member of the House Un-American Activities Committee. He was equally attentive to, and equally against, any anti - racial discrimination moves by the Democratic administration. He strictly for segregation of Negroes.

S. district attorney Fr day to return to private law prac lice here. He has been attached t Retail Food Prices Highest on Record WASHINGTON ffi — Mid-August retail food prices, the government's Bureau of Labor Statistic reports, were the highest in U. S. history. During the first half of this month the bureau's index went up almost 1 per cent to 235.6 per cent of the 1935-39 average. On the basis of figures collected in eight cities, the bureau said foods now are j.bout 16 per cent higher than when the Korean War began in June, 1950. In another economic development, the government yesterday suspended price controls on radios, television sets, record players, carpets and bedding. The latter includes studio couches, davenports, mattresses, springs and pillows. Price controls'were abolished on vitrified chinaware, silverware and jewelry, and hand - made house - nold glassware. Retiring Price Stabilizer Ellis Arnall said relaxatipns "do not mean abandonment of controls in any area where controls are need- At the same time he championed the Tennessee Valley Authority, rural electrification, and war veterans. Veterans were his special province. He was chairman of the House Veterans Committee. For attentiveness to his job, he set an example. Up at 6 in the morning, he got down to his office before any of his staff. And he knew his way around Congress as few men did. All the business of the House, on the floor, is done according to parliamentary rules. Rankin took the trouble to learn them by heart. With this knowledge he was hard to fool and he could tie the place in knots. In spite of his shrewdness, events he couldn't control were Rankin's undoing. He lost his job on the Un - American Activities Committee through a reorganization of Congress. In 16 previous elections Rankin had squeaked through, or breezed through, depending on who his op- Carlson (R-Kas) said Friday th American Legion, in demandin the buster of Secretary of Stat Dean Acheson, "has requeste what the President's own part feels and what the American na tion demands."
