The Washington Merry-Go-Round . . . Duff One Of ISinall Republican Segment i . By DREW PEARSON -HARRISBURG, Pa,, Nov. 1.-- The state of Pennsylvania, which has sent some freak senators to Washington in the past, this year can't.-very well go -wrong. It has two good men to pick from: Gov. Jaines Duff, Republican, and Sen. Francis Myers, Democrat. However, if -the tremendous swing which nominated Duff last May continues.- he ' ' I 'be the new senator In' Washing next'January. ;:ThIs--if': ! -it happens--will mark Â·ojnething more than just a new cgxiatbr'-from -Pennsylvania. For DJiiff represents a new philosophy Inside the Republican party.which iteneeds more ,'of if it is ever going t* recapture the White House. He aJjo is a man who is sure to be considered a presidential candidate ll|he wins Nov. 7. ^Vhen Duff was. nominated to tike-senate 1 , last spring he received letters, .from al! over tlie country stating:. . "Thank God -for a change ''/ the 1 Republican .leadership. re . ^Democrats, but we ' ^vould '''JJepublican, if. tbe.-Hepubli- ' offered" something new." .. f-JVhat they referred to is the fact tiat.-Duff has/ not. tried to tear deJsTi/all the new deal legislation 3$DH;'builrup.' Nor' has 'he based rns'campaign on the Sen. McCarthy bdgeyrfiiat Communists lurk under state- 1 ' department desks. .' : Instead, Ire. has followed a policy not unlike that of : Gbv. Warren of 'California of taking' the best of the New.

'years, been completely renovated. And today Pennsylvania is ahead of most states in its care of the insane'. Duff is a former Bull-Mooser, was a delegate to the Teddy Roosevelt convention in 1912, along with another eminent Pennsylvanlan, Harold Ickes., His disrespect for big business was acquired from Teddy and his fatter. "The general run of people," he says, "are not interested in, making the rich richer and the poor Â·poorer." TURXS DOWN KETAI-VERS There 'is an interesting contrast between the life of Jirn Duff and that of Joe Hanley, lieutenant governor of -New York. When Duff was urged to run, for governor, he also pled; lack of funds. But a friend argued: ""You can get two retainers for 820,000 .and $15,000 that will supplement your, state salary."

The average increase for the entire state, al! accommodations, was 15 per cent ab-vve last year. The percentage N -increases ranged from a low of four per cent for northern Arizona hotels, resorts and ranches to upwards of 40 per cent for motor motels in Nayajo county and in Mesa. Â· ' . The figures give support to growing confidence in the tourist trade that southern-Arizona" is due for an WASHINGTON, 1. (U.R). Two groups of E-29, Superfortresses -- the type of plane that dropped the atomic bomb on Japan --are being returned to this country from Korea because no suitable targets are left for them. An air force spokesman'said last night that the first of the big planes arrived on the west coast Monday, and the rest will follow soon. One group, the 22nd, is based at March air base, Riverside, Calif. The other, the 92nd, operates out of Spokane, Wash. Both were sent to Korea early in July as the units dispatched to the far east in the Korean crisis. The air force spokesman both bomber groups were relieved from their war assignments by Gen.

And' the normal GOP-governor' in .Harrisburg usually .did, their bidding. Gov. Duff, Jiowever, reversed this -and, ; in so doing, won the undying enmity of that insatiable' disciple of the high tariff, Joe Grundy, plus all his fellow manufacturers. They did their best to defeat Duff at the primaries and, believe it or not, they are JIDW' conspiring with a Democrat, ..Sen. Myers, to try to defeat Duff ' In November.

When Jim Duff was a boy, he remembers an oil company, drilling Â·wells opposite his father's farm Â·nd offering-to buy the Duff place --for a song. His father refused. Â· Instead, he drilled eight Avells ori his own land;' But when he could not get the oil company to buy his gas; the elder Duff simply uncorked a well, let the gas gush out, thus lowering the pressure in the wells ; aeross the ^ ne After-that the. oil company came to. terms; : --Â· v ' ' - Â· Â· ' - That "was when Jim Duff got his first taste of. bucking big business ' and he-has been:bucking the-barons-most-of-his life. ' , ...-His next brush came when he was attorney- rgeneral of Pennsyl vania and closed the legal loopholes permitting dumping in Pennsylvania rivers. Later, as governor, Â· he-, started the almost revolution- Â· ary project of dredging out- the Schuylkill river. DREDGES RIVER For years Â· the Â· coal companies along the'river had been dumping their waste coal- and culm into the, Schuylkill until its' channel was choked to a height of IS feet. This is now being dredged out of the river, the channel restored and about one-third of the coal reclaimed. At first, -business was opposed. But; the other day, Revelle Brown, president of^the Reading railroad, told 'the' 'governor: "They've been rapping you .over: the Schuylkill river, but I think' .it's one of the best things the state has e v e r done."" i , Another Duff project was .to clean up.the state asylums, long one of the worst scandals in Pennsylvania." The jyberry asylum near Philadelphia, was. so filthy that holes in the floor were used as toilets and inmates were chained to the .walls. But with the help of former..Supreme Court Justice Owen Roberts, Life magazine and a group of Quakers, Bybsrry has now past.. Unlike Hanley, Duff.replied:" Â· "Not. me.

'After conferring with Mrs. Duff, however,-..they decided to curtail their.domestic budget and thus run f o r office, ; . ' . - Â· Â· ' Gov. Duff belongs to-a small but growing school ^ within the Republican party, including GOY. Warren of California, Gov. Driscoll of .New Jersey, Sen. .Ives of New York and Morse of Oregon, who believe that you don't' win votes merely by criticism. You've Â· got to lead, DUild, construct, they, believe, not tear, down. And if sometimes your program overlaps or coincides with he .Democrats', they also'believe that's no reason for shying away ifrom it. That's why the prospective senator from Pennsylvania says: "In this fight the Republican party cannot go two ways at tlie same time." '.
