Legislators Preach Economy As They Dip Into Pork Barrel When it comes to voting money for flood control and navigation projects, the Senate is a very charitable place. i In facf, it's a lot more so than the House. i\ Sen. Paul H Douglas of Illinois, a liberal who doesn't believe that term . ' ^ inescapably nv\ Ives heavy spending, tried ; hard this year to curb the Senate's char- , ¥ t itable impulses But it being 1950, with' [ ) elections scheduled in the fall, the sena- .1 tor's painstaking labors went for naught. The Senate has approved a waterways bill appropriating $1,565,767,825 | for the fiscal 3 ear starting July 1. This < ;J compares with $1,117,100,000 voted by • ^ the House. If things follow their usual 1" course, some but not all of the funds added by the Senate will be chopped out of the bill. ' This is the second time Douglas has sought "to trim waterways appropriations'. Last year his attack was general, but his recent economy campaign was specific. He attempted to eliminate 53 individual propects that are expected to cost $840,000,000. . Douglas had some constructive ideas aimed at easing; the federal burden of cost. For example, he proposed that when flood control levees are built, the ; property owners who would benefit from the protection he asked to share the cost. Senator-Byrd of Virginia, long-time seeker after government economy, came to Douglas' aid by pointing out that many projects the Seriate tossed into the bill hadn't even been approved by the President's Budget Bureau. He noted that others had won either just "qual- •Wj ified" endorsement or were rated defi- j>£t nitely low priority items. •' But there were no other influential recruits in the uphill fight so the outcome was no different from other years. Many of the same senators, who in a sarcastic mood, clapped when Douglass announced he was about to give up, will now do a fast turn-around and begin yelping for economy in foreign aid funds. "Economy for the other \fellow" is clearly a well-established theme among our courageous lawmakers. The only thing hard lo grasp is that most of the men who will be singing this song expect to be taken seriously. Should they be? An Economist Looks Ahead And Sees 25 Fat Years Though, In the years Just ahead, the American farmers will face some difficult readjustment problems and other troubles will probably develop, the underlying trends point to 25 years of sustained farmer prosperity. An outstanding authority in the field—Dr. O. V. Wells, who heads the United Sates Bureau of Agricultural Economics—contributes that opinion to the current Pirm Journal. He cites certain factors which apparently justify his optimism: 1. The country's population should Increase from 150 millions to 175 millions by 1975 2. The typical American today eats better by some 10 per cent than before the war 3. Farm efficiency hu Increased to where no more cropland and fewer workers produce bigger crops today than the farmers produced 25 years ago. 4. Increasingly, the farmers are learning to work together on both their production and their marketing programs. Taken together, those trends obviously spell prosperity for the farmer. Against those factors. Dr. Wells poses two big questions: 1. Can this Nation maintain employment at present^ igh levels through the next 25 years? Dr. Wells thinks It can. 1. Will the farmer be able to sell one-third of their cotton, grain and tobacco abroad, 'as they have done for some years past? That one is not so readily answered, but Dr. Wells points to Europe's growing population and to its potential buying power, as normal production shall be resumed and trade barriers shall be towered. In effect. Dr. Wells concludes that the Americana can keep and build up their export markets, If they only play their cards right. He be- llevn they have economic sense enough to do that. -«AN ANTONIO EXPRESS Man's Chance Man's first stumbling efforU to harnesa atomic energy already hare produced important results.

Written for NEA Service Travel by air has become so common that the question comes up more and more often as to whether it is safe (or people with various kinds of diseases to travel in this way. Certainly most healthy people can travel in commercial airplanes at the usual heights or with pressurized cabins without suffering any harm. At extreme heights, such as Hying over the "hump" between India and China many passengers suffered temporary loss ol consciousness during flight, if they were not given oxygen. The lungs and heart are the organs most vulnerable to changing altitudes. A few—very few—accidents to the lungs or heart have been associated with (lying, In one case, a young man developed a collapsed lung (called pncumothorax) after flying to an altitude of only 80CO (eel. This, of course, Is unusual, but patients who are under treatment with pneumothorax (artificially produced to treat tuberculosis or some other condition) should not be transported by air because they are liable to special risks. It' Is wise, therefore, for people with a collapsed lung or with some other lung complaints not to travel by air or, if they do, to make sure that the flight is not to go above 5000 feet. For specific information they must, of course, consult their own physician, People with Infected sinuses may have some difficulty particularly since coming down fast Is likely to cause pain. Same substance which can be Inhaled or nose drops ,which •shrink the membranes lining the nostrils may be used helpfully to le. e sen this type of pain. How about air travel during pregnancy? If extra oxygen is given above 5000 feet there should be no question of lack of oxygen. However If henrt disease is present oxygen may be advisable If the plane files high. Risky Business The only possible reason why pregnant woman In good health might refrain from flying late In the course of the pregnancy wouk be because of the possible chance o having the baby born during flight. This chance Is greatest during the last month. Each airline passenger must take some responsibility for being sure that lungs and heart are in good condition before undertaking Ilighis, especially if the conteiii*- plated trip may.-take.'them to unusually high altitudes. With ordinary precautions and with very few exceptions there does not seem to be any reason why airplane travel should be any more dangerous from the standpoint of health than travel on the ground. By DeWilt Mackenzie AP foreign Affairs Analyst Ivan Mestrovic, world (amoui Yugoslav sculptor who is a voiun- ary "exile" in America, dropped in on me in New York yesterday and I extracted from him an Interesting development in his differences with Generalissimo Tito—a further request from Tito that Mestrovic return home. l\\ I use the word "extracted" «* visedly, because the good doctor doesn't give up Information about himself readily. However, that's understandable in view of his delicat* position In relation to the Yugo- || Slav chief of stale. Tito Sent Messages As reported In previous columns, Tito has sent numerous messages to Mestrovic by envoys, urging the sculptor to return home and promising him personal security. The generalissimo's ostensible interest in getting the doctor back home Is that Mestrovic not only is an International figure in Ihe art world but is regarded by his countrymen as a great patriot. Willie Mestrovic's personal secur- ty has- been guaranteed, lie always replied that he wouldn't re",urn to Yugoslavia until his great 'rienil, Archbishop Alojzijc Stepan- c, of Zagreb, Is released from prison. The prelate was sentenced In October, 1946, to 16 years In prison "or "crimes against the state." The generalissimo finally offered the archbishop his liberty it lie would go to "tome and stay there. Tito didn't want him in Yugoslavia. Archbishop Refused Tiie archbishop refused to accept his liberty unless he could remain with his own people. The latest Is a further invitation to Mestrovic. offering him a special passport, ok'd by the generalis^ao himself, permitting (he doctor 'l§n?o in and out of Yugoslavia as ha sees fit. The sculptor tells me his answer how is that he won't return until Stepanic not only is released but Is permitted to remain in his own country. Maybe I am over sentimental, but it strikes me that there is something heroic In such a friendship. It's akin to that of Dumas' three guardsmen—one for all and all for one.

I don't believe Tito will get Mestro- •ic back until Stepanic is freed and allowed to stay in Yugoslavia to work among his own people. There is a firmness about Mestro- ic.which Is very convincing. He Is a great artist—but he cliold be ough if he had to. Dr. Mestrovic is » mighty inter- sting personality, and I like him. The 67 years old sculptor has climbed the ladder from the;1 torn rung.

He started his education at, home, with the encouragement of his father and mother. Is A Nationalist Mestrovic is a nationalist and is against all dictatorships. H« Is strongly religious and has been & staunch supporter of the Catholic Church, which accounts in part for his great friendship with Archbishop Stepanic. Mestrovic's religious bent i s demonstrated concretely in a great work of art which, he just completed after more than a generation of labor. It is a series of 25 panels, carved from wood, representating phases in the life of Christ. That goes on exhibition next month at Syrccuse University where Mestro- vic a teaching sculpture.

The only chance was to set up dummy's long diamond •suit. Tills suit had to be established without allowing East to uin a trick In It. So South allowed West to win that first trick with the queen ol clubs! . West continued clubs (no other lead would have made a difference) and South won with his king.
