Radio-TV at Press Talks Can Benefit Ike and Public Heartening news it is thiit President Eisenhower \yill retain tlie 20-year-old custom of holding ^s'cekly press conferences marked by free and open verbftl questioning. Before he took office, Mr. Eisenhower -was rumored to be planning to curtail or even eliminate this prized arrangement for keeping the White House within close reach of the public. Either file rumor was false, or the stir it caused led him to change his mind. In any event, through probing re^ ; portera, the people now may continue exercising this unique check upon the activities of their Chief Executive. No , other device would probably do quite the same sort of job. Rumor had it right in one regard. The new President was contemplating ^ changes- But everything indicates these 'will work in the opposite direction — toward improving the press conference as a medium of exchange between the White House and the outside. For one thing, he plans to have cab' inet heads or other agency chiefs sit in and answer questions at press conferences whenever a likely topic of discussion may touch access to administration officials, it cannot help but be an improvement so long as the opportunity , ia wisely employed on both sides. The other proposed innovation is more revolutionary. The President is thinking of permitting television rvjid radio coverage of his press conference about once n month. And, of particular significance, he may decide on these occasions to vary the pattern by delivering a brief talk to the people over nationwide networks. This plan is a two-sided affair. Again, it offers the public, through the widening scope of radio and TV, greater chance to observe and, measure their top elected official. But • at the same time it gives the President an unequalled chance to go to the people with his message, to enlist their support for his programs and policies. As has been observed before, conflict between a President and Congress, between a President and opposing wings of his own party, is almost inescapable. At such times, a President really has only one place 'to turn for backing — to the people. !f he can marshal public opinion behind his position, neither Congress nor any faction of his party can !o»g hold out against him. They do so at their own political peril. Franklin D. Roosevelt pioneered in using the radio for this purpose. Mr. Eisenhower, taking office on the threshold of * vast expansion in TV, hag R r»r« opportunity to «mp!oy th« n«w outlet to «ven greater effect. Quite obviously he perceives the promise that lic», in tiu« prospect- Democracy Exemplified Millions of American citizens had cause to be grateful for the electronic miracles that allowed them a Bent at the side of history in the first coast-to-coast telecaat of a presidential inauguration. But the real marvel of that day was not a scientific but a distinctly human triumph. It was the simple inaugural ceremony caught in the lens of the television camera. What a pity it, is that the whole world could not have watched as Americans did. For this graceful, ungrudging, peaceful transfer of power bespeaks perfectly the real meaning of democracy •— the right of free men to choose, and to change, their leaders by non-violent processes ultimate verdict is accepted by all with good will.

Views of Others 3 ayment for Safety More than o»e motorist has grumbled over the lllgh costs ot auto accident liability Insurance. The Irritating factor Is that careless drivers generally pay no more for insurance thin do the motorists who have no highway mishaps. We arc hnppy to note an Insurance company has decided to try to do something about this situation. Beginning February 1 nil experiment will be conducted by the insurance compnny In California. The officials say frankly they are not sure the experiment will be^ successful, but they will give it a trial at least. Here's how the experlmeutJSorka. rf you're-» California motorist insured with • the company, and drive a year without nn accident, your premium will be reduced one per cent. If you drive safely two years the premium will drop two per cent. Should you hnvc an accident that is your fault, your "merit rating" will drop five per cent for tlint year. If the experiment works In CRlitornl*, the company mny extend the plan nation-wide, .we think the company should be commended for Its efforts. Careful drivers'will be rewarded; while careless drivers will help pay those awards. We await the experiment's outcome with Interest. —LaQrange (GcO Daily News. Traffic Solution Marriage aids driving ability, says « University of Iowa psychologist. Now wonder why that is? The psychologist. Dr. A. R. l^uer, advocates denial of drivers licenses to unmarried men under 25.

Driver training should start early -for boys, he believes, because "men benefit from training only If under 20 or over 40.

HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD — (NEA) — Seventy-five per cent of all television shows will have switched to film by Ihe end of 1953] That's the latest prediction, on ilollywood's video nllcy and a survey I just made of the booming new telefilm business reveals these eye-poppers; Forty-two film series are now being filmed In Hollywood. TV producers are turning: out as ninny entertainment hours on film In six months ns big-screen producers ever made in their best year. One local film processing plant alone now develops and prints 20 million feet of TV film every month — twice as much as big- screen celluloid. Jerry Lawrence and Bob Lee, who write "The Unexpected" and "Favorite story" telefilms made Peter id son's Washington Co/umr Inauguration Visitors' Expenses Averaged $100 Each for 4 Days in Hollywood, are the most oplt- mistic of all in the East vs. West battle for TV supremacy. Says Jerry: "Television's continuing expansion will take place in Hollywood—not New York/' Says Bob: "The critics who cry down the Hollywood product aro not going to retard the move west- i ward n single day. The forces In favor of the California production center are too strong: — facilities, weather, space, trained personnel, talent pools — pools." and swimming pean championship last September. In Jan Wohlin, known affectionately as "the fat boy," the Swedish team has one of the [inest card players in the world. I look forward with pleasure to the book of the 256 hands of the recent world championship match in New York largely because so many fine hands were played by Wohlin. (Bridge fans won't find this tournament book In the stores; it's being published at cost by the American Contract Bridge League.) Today's hand was played by the 250-pound expert in the fina'ls of the match between Sweden and Italy last September.

A $100 personal budget would be about average for the four davs. To make the de luxe tour, with the best seats at everything and top- price rooms at the best hotels, cost over $200 a head. .

Department of Cooperation Cooperation between the incoming Elsenhower and outgoing Truman administrations for a smooth turnover of government probably reached its high point nt the Commerce Department. Republican Secretary Sinclair Weeks came to town to confer with Democratic ex- Secretary Charles Sawyer.

If'soundcd like an Idea so they went out to the Wcstcheslcr to look over the Sawyer diggings. Mr. Weeks liked them, nnd said he'd take over the lease. Then Mr. Weeks allowed as how he would have to set a maid. Mr. Sawyer said. well, why not Itire his housekeeper-cook? Mr. Weeks liked her, too, and Hired her on the spot.

Union Irl'jor political leaders arc now somewhat ashamed of the knifing they gave Barkley at the Chicago convention, so they'd go for him. It is not expected that Mr. Barkley would do much desk or executive work. But he could make speeches—the thing he likes to do best. Mr. Barkley has speaking engagements—some of them made as long as a year or more ago — which will keep him busy till May. He tins made no announcement as to whether he will keep his apartment In Washington or return to Paducah. For the first time In perhaps his whole life he has nothing to say—on this subject anyway. But the blow of [caving Washington after 40 years of work here has been severe. A job that he liked and that would keep him In the capital would be welcome. "Rccdle" Smith in Review With Secretary of State John Foster Dulles scheduled to hop off for Europe soon, and talking about n trip around the world after that, the real job of reorganizing the Stale Department Is going to fal on the new undersecretary. Gen. Waller Bedell Smith. While General Smith's military record, his experience ns ambassador to Moscow for three years and as head of Central Intelligence Agency are well known, mcst people arc not familiar with his earlier diplomatic achievements which qualify him for state Department service. \ He attended Ihe Paris peace conference alter* World War t, and was U. S. representative on the Hungarian treaty ^commission. Atler World War II'he was member of Ihe U.S. delegation to the London, .Moscow nnd Paris meet- ngs of foreign ministers. In 1945. acting for General Eiscn- lower, "Beedle" Smith went to Lisbon and negotiated the surrender of Italy. He negotiated with the jermans for food supplies to Holand, and he signed Ihe German •surrender documents. Also, he negotiated with Russia on ending the Berlin blockade. Voice of Doom While most economic sages have been .predicting continued boom prosperity for this year, the next, and ; even Indefinitely, there are some voices of doom. One of them is Stanton Griffis, ex-U.S. ambassador to Egypt, pain and the Ar- ! gentlne. Griffis made his millions In Wall Street, and avoided complete _ disaster In the 1929 crash. "At the risk of being called an old fogey," writes Griffis in his new autobiography, "Lying in ," "let me observe that we are now undergoing one of those great booms . . . that could conceivably lead to disaster. " "We are told that inflation is here to stay . . . The cry persists that common stocks are the only~safe Investments. . . . "The theories on which this hypothesis is based may be correct, but they have a familiar ring. . . . Today's overwhelming prosperity Is bound to have Its aftermath. Galileo and Newlon were right In Insisting that whatever goes up must eventually come down. . . . Great markets have a way of vanishing overnight." Farewell Quips As additions to the "Famous Last ; Words" department, the remarks of some of the departing Truman administration officials are worth remembering. President Truman, to his last press conference — "I hope you'll have ns much fun with my successor as you've had with me. Secretary b* State Dean Acheson —"The one who goeB is happier than those he" leaves behind." Secretary of Commerce Charles Sawyer (who will immediately .resume the practice of law In Ohio)— "There's a good deal of nonsense in public officials going off for long vacations on leaving office." . Secretary of Defense Robert A Lovett (reading a note to one of the incoming defense officials from one of his friends)—"If you can keep your head when those aboul you are losing theirs, you just don't understand the situation."

A—H is well know among medical men that the blood pressure in many new palionts is likely to be higher on the first visit that it Is later on and thai this is Ihe result of excitement. There Is consequently s slrong likelihood that when Mrs. C.M, returns to her new phys lumor from the adrenal gland? Arc there nny tests that show the presence of such n tumor? Mrs. M.S. A—The tumor to which Mrs. S. refers Is known as n phcochromo- cytoma. The exact frequency of this lumor is now known, but it Is almost certainly no higher than she suggests. The diagnosis is loo complicated to discuss here, but it can generally be made by careful history- inkiiii]; and special tests. Removal of such a lumor may give complete- relief of the symptoms.
