An Uninsiructcd Delegation EVENTS ARE building up on the national political horizon which should give Florida the strongest position in national councils it has ever enjoyed, especially if our state leaders rise to full recognition of the significance of plans now shaping up in the South preliminary to the next national convention of the Democratic party. A determined effort to gain proper recognition from party leaders for the South will undoubtedly be made, and it is the belief of close observers in Washington that these efforts can be far more effective than either the token protest of the last convention or the third party States Rights movement of the last presidential election. There are Florida leaders who are alive to the opportunity that has come to Florida and who are demanding that Florida's rising economic leadership in the South give her a stronger position in party councils. Prominent among these advocates is Congr. Bob Sikes, of Crestview, representative from the third Florida district, who says Florida is now strong enough to secure that increased recognition, but she will have to work for it. He urges as a first step that Florida Democrats elect strong and vigorous and outstanding d e 1 e g ates for the 1952 convention. "I believe that these dele gates should be u n instructed," de-clares Congr. Sikes. "I believe they should be tied neither to a state political figure with an ax to grind nor to an already des- THEY'LL DO IT EVERY TIME By Jimmy Hatlo : v ' ' , - , 4 - CONGR. BOB SIKES "To lose a single pound of body fat by physical activity," says an American Medical Assn. article, '"You would have to either saw wood for 102 hours, lay 14,731 bricks, do carpentry for 30 hours, shovel 114,000 pounds of sand, run 43 miles or wrestle five hours. H-m-m. That extra pound isn't so hard to get along with after all. The lady who wore unmentionables now has a granddaughter who wears nothing to speak of. A five-generation Democrat who resides in Dubsdread has lived his life in the notion that a Republican vote in the family would cause great commotion in the family cemetery. So he plans to "watch the graveyard carefully the night of the next election to see if it's true that my grandfather would 'turn over in his grave.' " ignated presidential candidate. I don't think Florida can gain in the party councils by simply 'going along for the ride.' Our delegates will have to fight for the rights of our state and for the rights of other Southern states. "The 1952 convention is going to be one of the most important of our times. Its decisions can have far-reaching effects for the future of our state and our nation. The philosophy of a sound government controlled by the people with essential rights reserved for the states rather than an all-wise, all-powerful central government may lie in the balance, at least as far as future policies of the Democratic party are concerned." As one cogitates Congr. Sikes' words and appreciates an absence of personal ambition in favor of seizing an opportunity to place Florida on a pinnacle where she belongs, it would seem that his clarion call has enunciated a policy close to the hearts of a long-suffering electorate. Florida is no longer a weak sister in the national picture. She is strong and vigorous and potentially a leader. There is nothing so tempting to the awakening giant than the opportunity to flex his muscles and insist on the recognition to which he is entitled.. This coming year seems to be the opportunity for an awakening Florida, politically. If sending an uninstructed delegation of "strong, vigorous and outstanding delegates to the 1952 convention," as Congr. Sikes suggests, is the most effective measure, it is not too early to adopt the aggressive fighting policy that will bring ambition to fruition.

The other day something happened to us and we can't quite get over it. My wife and I went into an Orange Ave. store. We sat down at the lunch counter and, looking over the display price cards on the wall, we ordered an orange juice one large MERRY-GO-ROUND Ike Most Enjoyed Grandchildren And Bridge By DREW PEARSON WASHINGTON Next to his grandchildren, what Gen. Eisenhower enjoyed most in Washington was playing bridge with Chief Justice Fred Vinson, ex-White House Jester George Allen and Sid Richardson, the Texas oilman. Early in the game when Allen was winning, he remarked to Eisenhower, who is supposed to be one of the best, bridge players in the country: "I'm going to take an hour off every day to give you lessons." Later Eisenhower started winning. "I think I had better arrange for you to come over to Taris and play cards," he remarked solemnly to Allen. The luncheon Eisenhower had with Pres. Truman was highlighted by the general's view both on peace and the difficulties of the job in Europe. Eisenhower told Truman that he had no intention of leaving his post in Paris until his job was done. Then emphasizing his agreement with Truman that peace is the greatest issue in the world and that we can achieve peace only through strength, the general added something to this effect: "Every time I look at the picture of my grandchildren, I know how everything else is unimportant." Truman added something to the effect that he would go to bat for Eisenhower on whatever he needed to do the job in Western Europe. After Ike left town, someone asked George Allen: "When do you think Eisenhower will announce his Intentions?" "You know I don't badger Ike about politics," replied Allen in his Mississippi drawl. "I just play cards and joke with him. But if I were to go way out on a limb, I would say on the second ballot." This somewhat inconclusive comment was interpreted as meaning that Eisenhower would run, but only at the last minute. He cannot leave Europe until some time next Spring. The rearmament program is dragging and he feels he cannot launch a political career until he has the job reasonably well under way. Whether Republican politicians, now eyeing the Taft bandwagon, can wait until '"the second ballot" in other words until the last minute before the Republican convention remains to be seen. However, Eisenhower did reveal to at least one friend during his Washington visit that on diplomatic issues he sided with the Republicans in that he felt that Washington needs a houseclcaning. But mon foreign policy he said he sided with the Democrats. In fact, he went so far as to indicate that if Sen. Taft was the Republican nominee, he, Eisenhower, would not only not support him but might even consider running against him as a Democrat. Hoosier banker McKinney to clean house In both the Democratic party and administration. "I might have to step on the toes of some of your friends, Mr. Tresident," McKinney replied. "I'm loyal to my friends," said Truman, then unhappily added: "but some of them have let me down. You have my complete confidence and do what's needed for the good of the party, regardless of whose toes you step on." RATHER SADLY, PRES. TRUMAN told new Democratic chairman Erank McKinney that "friends" had let him down. The comment came after the president urged THE CUE HAS GONE OUT TO Republican speakers across the country to fan the flames of the internal revenue scandals into a hot political issue for 1932. To supply the ammunition, the Senate GOP policy committee has done a painstaking research job, which will be sent out for the confidential use of Republicans. This eight-page research pamphlet goes into the case histories of 27 officials who are linked directly or indirectly with the internal revenue scandals. It also gives helpful hints on how to slant the scandals in order to embarrass the Truman administration. Here are some sample quotes, which the pamphlet suggests to Republican speakers: "The Bureau of Internal Revenue, with all the power it exercises over the most intimate financial affairs of the public, should be a citadel of integrity. But the dishonest acts of the Truman administration appointees are discrediting it in the minds of the people," the confidential GOP pamphlet charges. "Whai brought this sorry state of affairs to th bureau, which for so long was held in wide acclaim and was a stronghold of public confidence?" demands the pamphlet. "Nearly twenty years of entrenched government sowed the seeds of corruption. The Truman administration is reaping now the fruits of its own abuse of political power. "One bevy of political hacks, chiselers and ward heelers has succeeded another in top-flight jobs within the agency," the confidential GOP instruction continues. "Generosity in political campaign contributions has been the open sesame for incompetents to aspire and obtain jobs . . . The Truman administration has sired the corruption of the tax collection agency by the intrusion of a brand of politics which makes no distinction between political loyally and integrity." The GOP campaign letter also attacks the man Truman appointed to clean up the internal revenue bureau Commr. John Dunlap. "There is nothing on the record to show that there would have been any attempt at a cleanup within the bureau, except for outside prodding," declares the GOP brochure. "It was not until after several cases had been exposed to the public view that the commissioner of internal revenue, John Dunlap. on Oct. 3 ordered an investigation of the tax returns of all officials and enforcement officers of the bureau. Dunlap was confirmed by the Senate several months before on July 18." Drew Pearson broadcasts every Sunday 6 p. m. over WHOO. U. S. Union Bosses Enter Foreign Affairs Tht New Imperialist By WESTBROOK PEGLER S.S. CARONIA One of the topics which I hope I will be able to investigate in Europe is a political and diplomatic service, under the management of David Dubinsky and other bosses of American unions, which has the effrontery to promote as well as it can a foreign policy independent of the foreign policy of the United States. The state department and others who make our official foreign policy and carry it out, have many terrible errors or crimes to answer for. But, as a nation, the American people are responsible for the commitments which our official agents assume in the name of the Washington government. The citizens of the United States have never authorized David Dubinsky to speak for us in the field of international politics ar.d we are almost unanimously Ignorant of the fact that this impudent socialist plotter has had the nerve to presume to do so. This is a secret from almost all of us. Under the "date-line" of Bad Nauheim, Germany, however, and under the by-line of David J. Dallin, the American Mercury tells us that "The American Federation of Labor since the war has not seen fit to restrict itself to merely functioning as a domestic economic movement." Beyond that, Mr. Dallin writes. "The A. F. of L. has developed its own unique foreign policy, which has differed in significant ways from that of the state department and both political parties." We then are told that the A. F. of L. refused to be drawn into the international Communist union movement after the war and "quietly went about planning and setting up its own foreign service structure and concentrated on evolving its own foreign policies." The A. F. of L. became the "natural leader" of a rival organization dedicated to the establishment of socialism all over the world. This is called the Confederation of Free Trade Unions, with headquarters in Brussels. All socialism is Marxian and Russian Communism also is a version of Marx. But Dubinsky, , like the English laborite socialists, want the revolution their way, not the Russian way. "The success of the new international confederation was due in no small degree to the personalities of its leaders in the international field, Matthew Woll, David Dubinsky, George Meany, Jay Love-stone, and George Harrison," says Dallin. "Minister of foreign affairs, so to put it, is actually Jay Lovestone, an expert in the international field, a man undoubtedly too little publicized on the American scene." Indeed, he is too little publicized, this "minister of foreign affairs" of this upstart, irresponsible "state derailment." And the fact that he is acceptable to Dubinsky, the perpetual international glass for 10 cents and one small one for five cents. We really thought it a good price. I must add that it really tasted good. When we handed the girl behind the counter 15 cents for the two glasses, she demanded 11 cents more. At first I thought she had made a mistake, but she insisted that the two glasses of juice cost 25 cents plus tax. When I pointed to the price card on the wall where it says Orange Drink, Large glass 10 cents, small glass five cents, the poor girl explained that the price on the price card was for "Orange Drink" and the drink she gave us was "Orange Juice." That's why it costs more. When I asked why not have cards with orange juice prices as well she didn't know what to answer. Now, my dear good Floridians, why should this country of plentiful citrus try to feature a substitute to orange juice? Frankly, what is "Orange Drink?" I know that up North in the apple country where I come from, when they sell apple cider, we know it's apple cider and not just' apple drink. Again, up North I can buy a large glass of Florida orange juice for a dime, and here in this blessed country of oranges, I have to pay a dime for a substitute. Isn't it in the interest of all citrus growers to see that Florida orange juice should be the main and cheapest drink of all here? H. W. SOMERFLECK A Paper, and Bolita Editor: Today I paid another month's subscription to the Morning Sentinel. Yet, I am planning to stop same for awhile. You see, I live in a four apartment house. I am the only one taking a paper. I do not mind lending it once in a while. A fireman and a carpenter live here, and I know full well they are earning twice as much as -myself. Of course, you know I am a widow and like to help every one, within reason. As for myself, I would rather go without something to eat than to THE LYONS DEN president of the garment workers' union, a parasitic socialistic state within the United States which operates its own political party as a union auxiliary in New York, makes it the more important that we learn all about him and Dubinsky and what they are up to. Lovestone is an apostate Communist who "for a time bore the same title that Stalin has carried for over two decades, general secretary" of the Communist party. "Lovestone has weaved his six envoys in the East end West into a well-coordinated political and labor network. Ambassador in Europe is Irving Brown, short-time former Communist, an organizer for the united auto workers and later member of the war production board. The job of representing the strong and wealthy United States in chaotic and disturbed Europe is a difficult one." These are enough quotations. They inform us that Dubinsky, who brazenly undertakes to supervise the politics of his subjects in public elections at home and inflicts financial penalties on ill-paid women needle-workers for refusing to contribute to his personal political projects in foreign lands thinly disguised as "charities," is engaged in mischief far beyond the known scope of even the most arrogant unions. During the war he operated an "underground" of his own in Europe by his own permission and without reporting to anyone or accounting for his expenditures of money which belonged to his subjects. Now he runs a "foreign service" with a "foreign policy" of his own, with a "minister of foreign affairs" which is a continental European title, and with an "ambassador in Europe" whom the American people never heard of, and a "well coordinated political and labor network" composed of six mysterious agents planted in Europe, Burma, Latin America, India. Formosa and "the Far East." The American people never heard of these people either. Woll. Meany and Harrison are meaningless here, well-fed, flabby bureaucrats who are merely names on a roster. Dubinsky is the force, Dubinsky has done as much as any other individual and more than most to deceive the Americans with elements of socialism represented as "democracy." If he could have his way entirely in the United States, our government would imitate in all important respects the socialist program of the miscalled British labor party which has now brought the old empire to disaster. Yet, Dallin, typical of this development, refers in the most casual and incidental manner to the news that Dubinsky's unknown "ambassador in Europe" has the job of "representing" the United States. Who elected these mysterious unknowns to "represent the United States"? What are their qualifications? Who are they, anyway? be without a home town paper. Everyone around knows I am aa easy ace; and when I meet people, well it seems to me their hand is always extended. But, I guess I cannot change my way of , living and will continue to lend, lend, and hand out everything else. I do not want to hurt anyone's feelings. I just figured If I quit maybe a week they would get out of the habit. Thought maybe an editorial would help, yet I do not want my name or apartment house mentioned. It sure is odd how tight om folks are, yet it is nothing for them to spend $1.75 across a bar, or smack down that amount or more every Saturday for bolita. Why are some arrested, whereas others are allowed to still sell? Why don't the grand jury question the ones arrested for names of the ones who are still in the racket and who have not been apprehended? Still one rat will not squeal on another rat. It is still being sold, so they must be protected. The favorites are protected. And I'll betcha after this letter is mailed I will try to break open the corner mail box to get it back. Funny, how funny some folks are.

Not long ago the lawyer heard from her again. She again was in legal difficulty, again protested her innocence and charged persecution. "I need money in a hurry," she told him, and gave him some keys and a document. "It's a letter to the warehouse," she said, "authorizing you to sell the stuff I've stored there a lot of expensive furniture." STATISTICS: At the Research Institute of America, Leo Cherne began to discuss the interpretation of statistics with his economist, Aaron Levenstein.

Today, however, returning from a TV conference, I had a writer on a leash, walking him up 7th Ave., where he ravaged a picture of Milton Berle.
