Williams has.revealed that he is unhappy albout having to pay for telephone calls from hotels in Little Rock while he's, in the capital city as a legislator. : This is<to be gathered from House Bill 131, which the Sheritlan building materials dealer has introduced. Said bill would prohibit hotels or other places of lodging from charging members of the General Assembly for local phone calls. Charging gut-st for phone calls made from rooms is a standard practice of nearly every hotel we've ever inhabited. And it's usually cheaper by a nickel to run down to the lobby and use a regular pay phone. We can understand Hep. Williams* feelings in the matter. However, we suggest he take the coins so disbursed off his income tax as a business expense (assuming, of course, his Little Rock phoning is business.) Otherwise, we see a nasty trend in such a law. Enough legislative business is conducted in cloak rooms, phone booths and in cigar-fogged suites. We are naive enough to think that the Ifcgislature's business would be best attended to on the floor of the Senate and House and in formal committee sessions. Like franking privileges for U. S. congressmen, free phone calls would only add to the verbosity of law-making, of which we feel there is a sufficiency already. buctnest man, lawyer » n fj politician; J«ss« Donaldson, ernment official. Summerfied gives the Republican administration an edge on one'. Here's how the other five posts stack up: Agriculture — Ikc'B cabinet, Bcn- «on, a farm cooperative specialist; Truman's, Brannan, lawyer and career man. Interior — Ike's, McKay, former Oregon government; Truman's Chapman, welfare expert and career man- Labor— Ike's, Durkin, AFL official; Truman's, Tobin, former Massachusetts governor. Attorney General —• Ike's. Rrownell, , New York lawyer; Truman's, McGran- try, former judge and congressman. There arc other business men in secondary posts In the new administration, no were there in the Democratic regime. What the complaints sei=m to boil down to is that the men in Mr. Eisenhower's cabinet are too recently associated with business. They have no government experience. They don't "know their way around Washington." Yet fair-minded men realize we must all start somewhere. Most of the men Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman brought into their governments didn't know their way around at ons time, either. Mr. Eisenhower was elected to bring a fresh approach to several vital national problems. Should he therefore be expected to bring with him exactly the kind of men who so recently were voted out of power? Remember, he has bten filling posts that are essentially administrative. In searching for competent administrators, he has come up witli one more business man than the Democrats had. That hardly sounds revolutionary, nor does it suggest the President assumes his victory to be a mandate to put business in the saddle^ It remains to be demonstrated whether lawyers, politicians or carter government men are better or worse than business men as government administrators. Very probably any new test will show mixed results, as in thb past. Again, the fair-minded citizens will not likely worry too much about the origins of these men, or how much money they have in the bank. The real measure is what kind ol' a job they do, and how thoy serve the American people. In the case of President Eisenhower's new cabinet, it would seem wise to wait and find out. Two _weeks at the helm is hardly time enouglulo tell.

Views of Others Critics-of Ike's Cabinet Err In Citing Its 'Business' Tone Some pretty foolish things are being said about thf apparent "business" tone of the Eisenhower cabinet, and it's about time to take another hard look. Especially since a few giddy critics are trying to label it "eight millionaires and a plumber." What are the facts? In President Eisenhower's cabinet are four business men, not eight. In Mr. Truman's there were three At the end, but at one time there were four. Run through Hit list. On the Eisenhower team, Charles E. Wilson, Defense, head of General Motors; George Humphrey, Treasury, manufacturer; Sinclair Weeks, Commerce, Boston business man; Arthur Summerfield, Postmaster General, automobile dealer and politician. Their Truman counterparts for the same four posts, in that order: Robert Lovett, Wall Street banker; John Snyder, St. Louia banker; Charle* Sawyer, Tribute To Sen. Byrd Republican leaders in the new S«nnte have pnld an impressive and well merited tribute to an outstanding American statesman and patriot by deciding' to ask Harry Flood Byrrti a Democrat, to continue to serve as clinlrmnn of the Joint Committee on Reduction ol Nonesscntial Federal Expenditures. I( Sen. Byrd agrees to stay on ns head ot this committee — and he has said lie will do so If he Is asked to — he will be the only Democratic committee chairman In the new Congress. The Republicans who have decided to ask Sen. Byrd to stay on the Job must realize he Is better qualified than any other senator for the Important work of the economy committee. They also realize that Sen. Byrd's objective all along has been the objective to which tho new Republican Administration is pledged — to check the waste of the American taxpayers' money. For yrar after year Sen. Byrrt has been show- Ing how bnHo'ns o( dollars could have been saved by cutting out nonessentinl Government expenditures. But the Truman Administration and the spenders In Congress have Ignored his recommendations. In the years Immediately to come maybe Sen.

Teler Edxm The most stg- Iflcant point about Secretary Ben- flon's plan to put 20 agencies in the )epartmenl of Agriculture Into our main Administrative groups is lat It ts only the first step of a much broader reorganization to c'ome later. What Secretary Benson has done so fnr doesn't cut a single em- ploye off the federal payroll and ocan't fiRve a single dollar. In act, it may cost the government a ittle more. For three of the four new top administrators have been given responsibilities that should entitle them to rnnk and pay as assistant secretaries at $15,000 a year. Actually they have gone to work ns administrative assistnnts at SL0.800 a yenr. They are John H. Davis, new head of the commodity marketing group of agencies; Romeo E.

Involved in the further reorgan- 7. nt Ion plans for Department of Agriculture are other ticklish prob- ,ems for CongreR. Moat Important of all Is a 'dea for complete merger of all soil conservation activities under John H. Davis, There havo been two conservR- Uon programs. Soil Conservation Service — SCS — took care of terracing, building ponds and prevention of erosion • by permanent works. The Agricultural Conservation Program — ACP — made direct payments to farmers for lim- ng and fertilizing their soil. This year AOP payments are costing $250 million. During the war they got up to J600 million American Farm Bureau and other organizations tried to cut these payments to S100 million last year but Congress refused to go along. m the offing is a plan to eliminate ACP payments altogether. Along with this shift in empha- s s on conservation work there are plans for decentralization of authority over conservation planning 1 . They would take direction away from Washington and give It to the states. 1IC ^LTUllVy 1_U[1UHIH.CCIIIC11 CIC^V UlC state commttteemen. All these reforms in Department )r«sent in one package. This Is of Agriculture were too much to why Secretary Benson's new reorganization plan ; took, only the first step In regrouping 20 agen- c es. The Inside story of the complete reorganization plan Is that it has been put together by Temple University expert,* assigned to continue the Hoover Commission work. The Temple report on Department of Agriculture w a s turned over to Secretary Benson. He in turn took it up with President Eisenhower's new 14-man Agriculture Advisory ^Committee, under Dean William I. Myers of Cor- pell. The Job of revamping the Temple report was given to John H. Davis of Boston, formerly executive vice president. of the African Wool Marketing Corp. Mr. Davis is a member of the Advisory Committee and under the new setup he will be head of the Commodity marketing group of agert c!es. It Is really the Davis, plan which now goes Into effect. the Doctor Says- -^rj iTT" E.

German measles In Ihe mother during the first three monUis of pregnancy and the appearance of congenital defccls of the Infant may have some bearing on this.

A boy who has had n successful operation can often completely Ignore the past difficulty, since he has the addltlohal advantage of eventually being able to grow a mustache to cover whatever slight scar might remain.
