The result was a bill reorganizing and streamlining congressional procedure which is excellent u.s far as it goes.'And it goes quite a Ions way. The I senators discarded one or two mossy, cherished traditions, and it must have wrung some of the older, more conservative hearts to do so. But they voted themselves and their colleagues in the House a ?5000-a-year salary increase by way of heart balm. They also provided some generous social security which will permit them to retire with dignity and a pension after 62 years upon this earth, provided that six of those years were spent in Congress. To enlarge upon the wisdom of that move might lead to some unflattering examples. So perhaps it is : enough to say that the pension appears to be a wise investment. Among the reorganization bill's chief virtues are a deduction in the number of committees, expert assistance for appropriations committees, eiiough money to hire capable help for other administrative and research duties, and the registering of lobbyists. A lot of senators have enjoyed the power, prestige and importance of many committee memberships. But they real- -ly pay for their enjoyment in hard work. Besides answering their mail, .^having their ears bent-by constituents, . understanding all current legislation, being .on the floor for debate and vot- : Jng, they arc also at present supposed . to be experts on all the various, com- i'pjex specialized subjects which they ; have to wrestle with in a half dozen ! committees to which they may belong. •• It is just too much to do efficiently. .Besides, the same general legislative ' subject may slop over into two or three "different committees, all of which adds ' to the confusion, delay and red tape. As for appropriations, Congress has generally had to take an executive department's word for what it needed, and why. The members have been busy enough without endeavoring to fathom the inner workings of outside agencies. Consequently, they have approved or slashed budgets through ignorance, caprice, benevolence and sheer cussedness. Provision lor expert assistants will give the committees some boys on their side whom they can trust, and who presumably will know what they're talking aboui. The new bill .should ease group pressures not only through registration and financial accountability of lobbies, but by the establishment of majority and minority comitlccs which would put major issues on a party basis. This last is something that Commerce Secretary Wallace suggested a while back, except that the Senate bill stipulates no reprisal it 1 some nigged individualist refuses to hew to tile party policy line. In short, there is a promise of bel- ter government in the Senate bill. If the House concurs, the result ought to win Congress a unanimous cheer. And that's a sweet .sound that the legislators haven't he-art! in a long time. Views of Others " . . . and have not charity As schools gn<l colleges open wide to the sou toueli ol June, an anxious onlooker scans the faces of outpouring graduates. She is not much like a goddess, this tattered flame of Peace, but she Is still hopeful as she asks: "What have you learned, you young men and women, in the years thai led up to this moment? How to be doctors and lawyers, scientists and aitlsmns, engineers and architects 1 / Fine! The world— anil I— hnve need of that knowledge. But we imve more need ol .something else, that something which Henry Drummond has rightly e.illed 'The Greatest Thing in the World'— charity or brotherly love. Natural scientists have discovered many wonders, bill (.heir lalest-lhc atom bomb— has emphasized anew how far they arc from achieving man's protection from the work of his own hands. And engineers, despite marvelous material ieals, have never succeeded hi building a bridge or friendship around th c globe, or architects in creating One World. "Bui there Is an unliilling way 'to make your culling and election sure,' as the Apostle I'clcr lias pointed on I. II is to add 'to your knowledge, temiwrnnce; and to temperance, patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and ,to brotherly kindness charity.' '"So I ask of yon what you have learned of fair play, ol unselllshness, ol true charity, tol- crcncc, brotherly love, and the recognition that there is but One I'tuher whloh Is so necessary realization ol unc World— and to me, Fur my hope rests in you."

"We'll have a look around in the morning. You said It was quite "Just the same—" Sally began; but the resident, entered and she said nothing more. "Why nol take Doe into your confidence, girls?" the interne sug- Kested. "He might even have the solution already worked out." It was Margaret Adams who told the story and while she was talking Doctor Willoughby's brow wrinkled in deep thought.

She knew Doctor Hallock's amused eyes were on her and went on: "It puzzles me that he knew where (he door of Receiving was located and thai the door was locked.
