Not a Politician's Job Signs »re coming out of Washington that Chief Justice Fred Vinson con- tinueg to play an active, part as an advisor to President Truman. .Thi* seems highly unfortunate for the prestige and independence of the Supreme Court, which Has suffered heavy blows in the last dozen years. The high court cannot be .entirely aloof from the political scene, for it must fashion a legal philosophy that can be molded to fit changing social realities as they ; are reflected in lawmaking- and executive policy. But that is'an attitude, wholly apart from one which allows.individual members of the court, and especially the chief justice, to serve as private political counsellors to-the Administration. If Mr. Truman considers Vinson's guidance indispensable to him,; he should appoint him as one of his top assistants and name as chief justice who will devote himself completely to the job :of being the nation's most important judge. The two functions don't Stirrjng Up the Red Paint Acjain 'Ike's' Warning on Defense Measures Should Be Heeded For many weeks charges have been flying that our military defeneses are not being made strong enough to give u's even^minimum protection iii event 4 «f a hostile attack. ; To all these Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson has replied that we are truly in sound shape. But mostly he has met specific- criticisms with broad gen- V.iews of Others The defense debate took a new turn, however, when Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower jumped in. He said the country hag disarmed in some directions beyond the point he considers safe. With Eisenhower speaking out, the dissent suddenly Required greater weight. For it was recognized that "Ike" •is in a far better position to know the facts than all the other critics thus tfer heard from. ' Johnson immediately repeated his ''insistence that our defenses are adequate, and declared that Eisenhower Ihimself had been a principal drafter of ;the'?13,000,OOC),OQO military budget now :befpre Congress. He said the general ;had not objected to proposed cuts. Congressional leaders, no less aware of Eisenhower's role in preparing the arms budget, nevertheless fell he might have had reason to change his appraisal of its adequacy. So they called him to the capital to hear his views. "Ike" told the Senate Appropriations Committee he thinks the country is tak- ,ing chances by not spending more for the Air Force, for anti-submarine warfare and for the defense of Alaska, our 'northwestern outpost close lo the Soviet .Union. He advised voting another ?500,000,000 for defense this year. It's clear from his testimony that the Air Force is his chief worry. He said he has been informed proposed ovitlays for fiscal 1951 won't maintain a minimum, modernized force of '18 groups in being. This is the very issue on which several other critics, have fastened. The crucial question is not how many planes we have or are buying, but how fit they • are for duty. If the pianos we have are ' being outmoded by technical advances faster than we replace them, then the net effect obviously is to weaken our air strength. If '18 groups are to be the 'measure of minimum protection, the planes comprising that force musl be kept up to date. It's no good saying .there'll be as many planes in 4S groups as were originally called for in the 70 groups sought by Congress and certain impartial in^ vesligalors. The point is: What kind of * ploncs? ' If Eisenhower is worried on this score', Congress ami all the rest of us Who Pays for Pensions? The worker who cin't get a.

According to the magazine writer, It Is doubtful.; '• He explains that if 14 million favored workers won |100-a-mcmth pensions ' for themselves, industry would eventually have to find places to invest between $100 billion and »300 billion to fund the pensions and make the system sound.

Sunday School ' Lesson The seeming miracle ot the growth and spread of early Christianity very definitely had Its roots and explanation in the greater miracle ot the Resurrection ot Jesus, after His death on the cross and burial. A more disheartened and disappointed group could hardly be found anywhere than the group of lowing their Master's death. Despite His words, that seemed so clear after His resurrection, they had clung to the last to the idea and hope of an earthly kingdom. They had left all to follow Jesus in that hope, and now they were left, lost and bewildered, knowing not what to do, or where to go. Peter expressed both his dejection, nd his counsel of despair, when said he wp.s going back to his shing 'nets: "I go afishing." Then, suddenly, all thai dcjec- on and frustration changed -into le and hope. Not only was their aith revived, but there came new ccesses of vision, cha»actcr, and that transformed men who lad been quarreling about place and ambition into Apostles, with 'a world mission and vision in a pur- x>se YIO\V spiritual, .That transformation is something not to be accounted for; except up on the plain facts.

Reversal Vaves Way This reversal of policy seems to have paver! the way for a striking development at the recent meetings of the Atlantic Pact defense mln- siers in The Hague. Spain being of vast .strategic Importance militarily, the question naturally arose of her relation to the 12-nation Atlantic Pact. The conference military advisers favored the teasing of air bases from Spain, rather than giving her direct membership In the pact. It is sa(d this proposal will be placed before the meeting of the pact nations' foreign ministers in London early next month. . All twelve nations must approve before Spain can be approached in the matter. Chief opposition comes from Britain, whose Labor government objects to, the Fvanco oh ideological grounds. The point Is that if bases slio' be leased from Spain, it would open >imf call down fire from heaven, and(the door to full Inclusion of Spain. coiisfine villagers who had used Him inhospitably (Luke 9:M).

It was his faith that inspired Paul, who spoke ol. himself as R Christian born out of due season. WASHINGTON —tNEAl— How big words can be used by politicians to confuse the public is well illustrated by a story going the rounds In the Florida Democratic primary campaign. Rep. George A. Smalhers is in a nlp-and-tuck light there to take the U.S. Senate seat away from Claude Papper. Opponents'of P^P- per have .started whispering campaign a? R inst him. "Senator Pepper," they confide, "is not only an extrovert, "but he also, practices nepotism. If passed along in just the. right tone, of voice, this Peter Ed son sounds terrible to the average Cra cker, already badly confused by stories of Washington "perverts" and "communism." Nobody using this story lakes the trouble to explain that an "extrovert" is merely a person who expresses ! himself vigorously, or that "nepotism** means giving your relatives a job.

The day before, there had been several congressional demands for his resignation. But when reporters questioned Mr. Acheson on his reaction to the charges being made against him he said, "I have not reacted yet. I suppose I should have, but I haven't There has been no reaction, unfortunate as that may be."

Twenty-two of these have indicated their desire to leave Bulgaria as soon ' as they can get, visas. Of the, 22, seven have dual nationality and 15 are U. S. citizens. The other 42 cho.sinp to remain are mostly older people who had been born*in the U.S. of Bulgarian parents or naturalized Americans who went back gecause they inherited property.
