TUESDAY, MAY 24, 1949 BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.) COURIEH NEWS PAGE THREE THE NATION TODAY Public Servants, Good and Bad, Must Take a Lot of Punishment, Much oi It Without Real Cause Hy James .Mar low WASHINGTON, May 24. (/IV-When u inun Is offered a big govern- •^nt Job, he'd bettor have extra thick skin find the understanding before he starts that nobody ever pleases everybody. He'd belter be able to withstand criticism, fnir and unlnir, hi trying to do the Job he thinks needs doing. Whnt he nrobably needs most is the long view, the realization that: Performing a public service is one of the greatest contributions wan can nmkc to his fellow-citizens, but It is not without danger. While some men emerge from the hurly-burly of public life shining and with a feeling of success, some creep away luirl nnd broken-spirited, even to the point of death. * James V t Forrest a 1 was one of the broken-spirited ones. Yesterday Rep. Hale BoRgs, Loulsann Democrat, told the House: "Mr. Forrestal was subjected to a campaign of abuse and vilification the like of which I have never heard." Hoffman Comments Forrestal didn't need the government job or the money that went with it. He was a wealthy man who was head of a banking firm when ht quit to come here. Nor did Paul Hoffman, who ran the Studebakcr Corporation, become head of the Marshall plan tor the money. After one year running the Marshall plan, he told congressmen that he has no intention of resigning this job ",ut— "Havtnt observed the way public' savants work, and the way that I have had to work during the last year, I have no desire for any political office whatsovcre . % " Perhaps no one has taken a more constant drubbing than David E. Ltlicnthal, who for nine years was with TV A and for the past two has been boss of the Atomic Energy Com mission. He has received praise and the harshest kind of criticism. His particular and long-Lime critic has been Senator McKcller, Democrat, from Tennessee, where TV A ha.s its headquarters. After Lilienlliul Ag:iiii And now LiHenthal is in for more scrutiny. For yesterday a House- Senate Investigation was ordered Into his handling of the atomic bomb and the atomic energy program. But Lilienthal has done a lot ol thingink about the role of a man in public service and no one has aaid more about it. In writing and spaches. Here are some of his views: "Public employemnt has become, in a very real sense, a hazardous occupation. The possibility of public Mfrlory, so often unjustified and Beyond immediate redress, does indeed cast a shadow of fear over public service, . . . "The procedures in the world cannot possibly provide an absolute assurance against unfair criticism or attack. Indeed, whether the criticism be fair or unfair, whether it be justified or unjustified, the right to criticize those entrusted with public responsibility lies at the very root of our conception of democracy. The real assurance of fairness rests upon the basic &ood judgment and the conscience the America n people." College Ballplayers Die in Crash Many Russians Planting Wheat Of Branched Type MOSCOW M'i—Mirny farms near Moscow arc to plant branched wheat this year. Branched wheat*flri of having one ear to each stalk like ordinary wheat, has many ears to each stalk.

Branched wheat has been bred aud developed by Soviet agricultural ficicnlLsts who have done intense research on it for many years. The area under cultivation to it i.s being rapidly extended, and rc.sult.s watched carefully, "Moscow Bolshevik" reported :i conference al the Lenin All-Union Academy of Agricultural Sciences at which the leading Soviet agricultural scientist T. D. Lyfsenko explained to farm inatuigcr.s in the Mo-scow area how they mast handle branched wheat acreage. Lysenko stated that the amount ol branched wheat sown must be from 0.9 to 1.0 bushels per acre. Lynseko ?aid the branched wheat .should be sown in single rows 40 centime tens apart at a depth of from 3 to 5 centimeters.
