'Go' Light Takes Pressure Off Traffic Problem Here The "green arrow" signal recently added to tlie traffic light at the intersection of Sixth Street and Chickasawba Avenue has lessened the pressure of traffic at that corner. Its installation marks a small hut forward step in the solution of this city's traffic problems. Properly utilized by motorists, this "go" fight can be of continuing benefit. , • There are only two things to remember: i 1. Eastbound traffic must yield 7 tha right-of-way to cars turning east off Sixth Street (Highway 61). 2. No left turns are permissable on the "green arrow." This light is not supposed to be R cure-all for traffic congestion at this intersection. It doesn't call for any lessening of alertness on the part of drivers. If anything, it calls for a little more common sense and courtesy. We don't think this is asking too much of anyone. It's a small price for the speeding up of traffic at this point. You Can't Predict'Weather' From Red Peace Zephyrs Breezes which seem io bear a hope of peace are blowing in-from the East these (lays. But spring and Joe Stalin being the unpredictable institutions they are, it's hard at this time to tell a peace breeze from another April wind The latest zephyr from .Moscow boars tidings that the retiring Indian ambassador there says Stalin believes there's no major world problem which can't lie solved by negotiation. The diplomat. Sir Sarvapalli Rart- hakrishmin, who based his statements on a farewell interview wilh Stalin, said the Russian leader thought "every effort" should be made to get leaders of major nations together to talk things over. Later, in London, Prime Minister Churchill said he would be willing to sit down and talk peace with Stalin "if the circumstances and the situation were favorable." That qualification, of course, could mean almost anything, but at least Churchill didn't take a negative attitude. What gives the Indian ambassador's statement some point, is that it follows shortly after Stalin, unexpectedly as a spring squall, chose to answer a series of questions sent to him by a group of American newspaper editors. True, he didn't say much. Rather, it was what he didn't say that gave some reason for optimism. He indicated his belief that another world war wan growing no closer. He said nothing par- TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 19S1 ticularJy ominous. These things in themselves signify little. The world has tried too long to read hope into the breezes from off the Russian plains. But hope springs eternal, and what season is more eternally fraught with hope than spring? Which brings us lo another point for optimism. Observers in Korea report a persistent, if almost indefinable, feeling that an armistice there is not far off, despite the continued deadlock in formal negotiations. Reporters on the scene say there are indications the Communists appear ready lo make possible compromises. This cautious optimism was based partly on radio broadcasts from China that the Reds will grant immunity to all prisoners returned by the Allies. But any political weatherman specializing in the Communist climate is well aware of the phenomenon of bewildering Red winds blowing from all qunrler.s at the same time, sometimes signifying little, sometimes meaning much. And it would be a foolish forecaster, indeed, who, in this tricky month of April, would say .what the present winds portend. They could mean that the "spring" of peace is really here, or they could mean only that the worst of the "winter" of war is over. At worst, they could mean that we'll have another heavy snow before "summer" really comes. Views of Others American Reichstag One would have to comb Anicricnn history to find an occasion when n President addressed Cojigress In a more contemptuous and belittling manner than that which marked Prrfidcnt Truman's message on his seizure of the steel plants. What the President said bolls do\vn to about tills:' I have done this thing and don't consider It necessary to cite any specldc authority, i dare you to oppose. IS you want to cooperate, i will not object, but whether or not you do is immaterial. Consider the background for the President's actions and the insult is sharpened. Time and again Congress has refused to heed pleas the President be given such seizure powers. On the very day of the seizure the Congress had confirmed this attitude in renewing for a short period the President's war powers. For at least 10 days before a steel strike was ordered, the threat of it was clear. The President had ample lime to consult Congress but did not do so. The law of the land In Ihe shape of the Taft- Hartley Act sets up a procedure for dealing with strike threats in vital industry. The President chose not to use the law. .. . And what does Congress intend to do? Wliat It has done so far is like a dog yapping at the moon—only Congress yaps more feebly, what does it intend to do? No one kr,uiia. Jt u like a group of men unaware it can and should do anythi.'g. Not since Adolf Hitler reduced the German Reichstag to » group of faceless stooges has there been a similar exhibition of a supine and pusillanimous Je-gislature. In (his Congress Is Senator Taft. who wants to be President and ha.; gone about the country say- In?—and quite truthfully, we think—the present Administration is rushing the country toward Socialism arid dictatorship. And what does Senator Taft intend lo no? He Is Republican lender of the Senate. If from that position he cannot effectively resist usurpation, what reason Is there to believe he would be effective as President? And where Is Senator Kefauver. who also wants to be President? Does he imagine chasing Ksmblers and pimps is more Important than combating the doctrine government by executive whim has become the fate of the United Slates? And there Is Senator Russell of Georgia, who wants to be President to preserve states rights. If this action of Mr. Truman's stands unchallenged, what rights does he think there will be left to Ihe slates or to the individual? H this order of President Trurnan stands. If the implied and Inherent jxnvers of Ihe President and commanrier-ir.-ch!ef arc as broad as Mr. Truman says. If he can lake over the steel industry, set its wages, dispose of its property, disburse its funds, he cnn do the same thing with any industry or individual whose, policies can be civcn the color of importance to national defense. If the ccmmanrier-in-chicf can over-ride the legislature, it will be only a question of time un- t'l he can order "his" troops to go into the halls of Congre.^ and purge the membership ol the House and Sfnaio. Tills usutpation will not slop with the set/tire of steel If the President has the powers he says, the da.v will romc when it will be inimical to national delcnr-e for Conpre^s even to yap.

I Russell Peter ft/son's Washington Column — With Florida Primary Coming Up, Sen. Russell May Go Campaignin* WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Now you take Sen, Richard B. Russell of eorgia. There's a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination who's taking i't easy and refusing to get hot nnd bothered about a single doggone Lssue. Let Kefanver and Kerr or any of the others go g a 1 I i vantin' around the country as much as they please, kiss- in' babies anrt pattin* blondes, shakin' hands till they wear off i'ptcr Edson their warts and develop callouses, By some perverse sense of responsibility. Senator Russell sticks x> his Job in Washington, chairman in his Armed Services and Agricul- MJre Appropriations committees and never makln' a single speech. But along towards the end of Apirl. Senator Russell has reason lo believe that nil this Senate business might let up a mite. And then for a few weeks he might do a smidgin of campaigntn'. There's a dinner bein' given In his honor in Atlanta Friday. Not a big banquet, you understand, just a quiet little gatherln 1 of a few old friends. Politics may be discussed some, of course. But no big speechi- fyin' with a lot of television and radio broadnastln' far and wide, • • * OVER THE weekend, Senator Rusell would like to go home to Winder, Ga M northeast of Atlanta, to see his 84-year-old mother. Then and only then will he consider do- In' a little campaigning In Florida. Senator Russell is entered in a. kind of beauty contest with Sen. Estes Kefauvcr of Ten- nessee on May 5. Where will Senator (lenivr vjn, uiai, 5 oem ieu entirely tp to his Florida campaign manag- r, Dr. Eugene 5. Peek, Sr,. of JcaTa. Fla. Wh^rnvpr Dr noni- iiiib. 11 5 Hii very casuai-nke. This is the first time Florida has id this early preference primary. The names of the candidates themselves appear on the ballot for local, state and national office. Anybody can run on this ballot. In addition to Russell and Kefauver, a couple of other local characters are running for President, but . they'll be eliminated. That's why this May 6 primary is Important as the first test cf strength between the gentlemen from Georgia and Tennessee. * « * THREE WEEKS later, on May 37,, will come Florida's second primary. \ tn this election, the names of only the-two candidates receiving the most voles for state, nnd IOCB! offices \\-\\\ appear. The names of Russell and Kcfau- vcr will disappear, hoxvcvcr, nnd in their places will be the names of their pledged deSep-ates to be elected for the Dmocratic Convention In Chicago. There are 59 delegates entered for Russell, but only 24 for Kefauvcr. Only 24 arc to be chosen. That gives Kefauver a decided advantage. Florida election law experts say the only reason these convention delegates' name.s do not appear on the first primary. May 6. is that they would make the ballot five or six feel long nnd Impossible to handle. To avoid this, they were shifted lo the second primary ballot. THE GREAT confusion this causes Is that Russell might win the beauty contest in the first primary and a few, some or all of his pledged delegates might be defeated in the second primary. Whether Senator Russell \vill go into Florida for more campaigning before the second primary hasn' been decided. In fact, nothing else about the Russell campaign has been decided. He is entered in onl this one primary. To all ontwarc appearances the outcome of th whole prc-Chicago campaign is to be decided in Florida, as far as tin Russell candidacy is concerned. The genial Georgia senator doesn't have to do another lick of work of course, to capture the solu Smith's 316 votes—Texas to Vir ginla. This coulrt well be the larg. est first-ballot strength at Chicago Whether It can grow to 616 and victory is something else again. » • • AT RUSSKLL'S Washington headquarters in a small secom floor Mayflower Hotel apartment everything seems serene.

She'll •emain with him throughout film- ng of his new British movie. Alice White, the silent movie cutie, South could make sure of his small slam without abandoning lis play for an extra trick. But if West opened the deuce of hearts, is was the case at a few tables, South had a problem on his hands. At rubber bridge there would be no problem, of course. South would play the four of hearts from (he dummy at the first trick, (Shame on you if you weren't planning to make that play.) East would win the first trick, of course, but no matter what East returned South could win in his own hand, draw three trumps, cash the top clubs and ruff a club, enter dummy with a diamond to ruff another club, and enter dummy again with the ace of hearts to get a discard on dummy's last club. Since the hand was actually being played in a, .natch-point tournament, life was not so simple for South. If he made the safe play at the first trick, he could be sure of the small slam but would have no chance at all for the extra trick. In a tournament, the extra trick is often just as important as the cotract itself. So at most of these tables South hopefully finessed the q u e e n of hearts at the first trick. This play, gave them the best chance for the extra trick, but it turned out disastrously. East won wilh the king of hearts and returned the suit, knocking out dummy's ace. Now South could draw trumps, cash the top clubs and ruff a club, but then his hope for the slam faded away. There was only the entry left in dummy (the king of diamonds), and South needed two entries there to set up t h o last club and then get back to cash It. The early removal of the ace ol hearts had proven fatal.
