Help Others Help Themselves Wire-Tapping Measure Thanks to a small group" of Republicans joining hands with a majority of the Democrats in the house of representatives, a bill to give an attorney general power to use a free hand in gathering wire tapping evidence was amended. , The measure was passed overwhelmingly after being changed to require an attorney general to gain federal court approval before tapping wires. This was a wise decision. An attorney general is an appointee of the president. It is possible that the White House occupant some day may be a man who places politics above his duty to the whole nation. If this were to occur the attorney general could tap wires with great zeal to gather partisan information under the label of hunting cases of treason and subversion. The bill, if passed by the senate, will enable w-ire-tapped evidence already in the hands of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to be offered in court. At present such evidence cannot be accepted by courts. Law Of Reprisal Tension has been growing daily between Israel and Jordan. Forays have been made by armed groups on both sides, resulting in many murders. The frontier border line between the two nations has been violated a number of times. Fifty-three citizens of the Arab state of Jordan were killed in an attack by Israeli invaders last October. It was an aftermath to the killing of three citizens of Israel by Arabs shortly before. The Security council of the united nations has been called to discuss the continuing attacks on both sides of the boundary1 separating the two nations. A mixed united nations armistice commission is engaged in trying to stop the endless attacks and reprisals. Feeling is nearing the breaking point. with agitation toward war being fostered on both sides. The old doctrine of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth is in practice. Every overt act of one is matched by the other. It is because of this atmosphere of violence and bad faith that the peoples of both states are suffering. They have become irresponsible independent states which still have to learn the lesson of how to behave toward their neighbors. Foreign Control Over Us One need not be surprised that Winston Churchill would desire to hold the United States to an extension of the agreement he made with former President Roosevelt concerning atom bombs. This executive agreement permitted the British to exercise a veto over the use of atom bombs by our country. Churchill now contends that this agreement would still apply to our new H-bombs had not our U. S. senate in 1946 passed a law against our sharing these scientific secrets with a foreign country. The fact that a president of the United States made an agreement with the head of a foreign government which permitted that foreign official to control the use of our A-bombs shows the need for a limitation on agreements by presidents. The way to establish that limitation also is revealed by the fact that the Roosevelt-Churchill agreement was nullified by an act by the congress. This is true even though the two houses of the congress were not aware that the Roosevelt-Churchill agreement existed when it passed the secrecy law. Citizens of the United States might well ask why a president would assume the power of committing the lives and fortunes of a nation to the decision of a foreign subject. By what authority has a president to tie the hands of 150 million people and deliver them lock, stock and barrel into the hands of a foreign power? It is time that this build-up of executive agreement authority is knocked out for all time. When any United States president assumes authority that is not delegated to his office by the Constitution ot the United States, he is a dictatorial destroyer of our individual liberty and an enemy of the republic. The congress of the United States wras established by our Constitution to make our federal laws. Treaties are made by the president with the consent of two-thirds of the U. S. senate present and voting. That the congress has the power to nullify execu tive agreements is shown by the effect of the 1946 j act of the congress. If President Eisenhower continues to use the influence of his office to stop the congress from approving an amendment to the Constitution to limit executive power, there remains the chance that a majority of the members in each house of the congress will act to kill such dictatorial agreements. Bridge (A WEBSTER CLASSIC) Mw! I DowV CAAth HeT CAM A BOUT. HF HAS AlO CAKOS SW HIS MAMO w . till H ' I M "I Cyflt tM If T liiw ' Artist Norman Rockwell Certainly No "Palooka" Unions' Activities Within Investment Field Growing By Victor Riesel There are more and more labor leaders picking up the Wall Street Journal these days, not just to see how the other half lives but to see how their unions' newly acquired stocks are doing on the big boards. Thereby, almost imperceptibly, begins a story which in a few years will make financial history, and headlines. Only the other day Dave Beck told a California audience that his Teamsters union has been earning an average profit of $113,000 a month, or $340,000 in the past 90 days, on the market. Beck didn't say just how much there is in the Teamsters' portfolio, but from past conversations with him I would guess there is some $5,000,000 in securities out of the union's $32,000,000 treasury. No Law Forcing U. S. To Buy Coffee From Guatemala By George C Sokolsky Jacobo Arbenz, president of Guatemala, the first "people's republic" to have been established on the American continents, has had this to say about coffee: "Exports of coffee for the 1952-53 season amounted to 1,237,-94 quintals (one quintal equals 101.3 pounds). The United States took 85.20 per cent of this. The higher prices will benefit the 1953-51 season in particular. Figures for it are not yet available. "It is absolutely clear that the rise in coffee prices has been due to economic laws that operate independently of the will of man. A forced cut in consumption, or a decree on prices, could not bring about lower-priced coffee. "From the economic or political viewpoint, it is even more impossible to justify a boycott directed exclusively against Guatemalan coffee. "For some years to come there will be a sure market throughout the world for coffee. Guatemala is insured of a good position in regard to coffee. Nevertheless diversification of crops is part of the agrarian reform." This statement is interesting because of the curious use of Marxian terminology, and the evidence that the continuance of this "people's republic" anil its possible, or even probable, emergence as a Soviet satellite is dependent upon the support of its economy by the United States. Not A Rig Purchaser The United States, as a government, only purchases coffee for its ftMn use in comparatively small quantities for its armed services, veterans hospitals, etc. The government of the United States does not purchase coffee for its citizens. We have not yet been reduced to barter sso prevalent in dealing am"ng the satellite countries and in Xhf trade between Soviet Russia and some nations. Therefore when 5.20 per cent of a rountry's export of any product takon bv American citizens. they enjoy the fi e light to use or concept; the rigid enslavement can to make sure that there is no Guatemalan coffee therein, it is strictly my business and the government cannot force me to poison my conscience any more than my alimentary system. Therefore when the Marxian concept of historical materialism is applied to a man drinking coffee by such a phrase as "due to economic laws that operate independently of the will of man," I smell not coffee but Marxism. Is an economic law a revelation from heaven? Is an economic law a law of nature? Even laws of nature are not altogether independent of the will of man, as. for instance, hybridization in agriculture, breeding in animals, or the experiments in atomic fission and hydro-nuclear fusion. The will of man transcends the so-called laws of nature, thus providing the correctness of Thomas Aquinas over the errors of Karl Marx. Fatalistic Viewpoint Marxism orthodoxly accepts the fatalistic concept of inevitability on the general assumption that nan is a product of his environment rather than the result of an act of God by creation. Free will is a Judaic-Christian of a man to his environment is a Marxist Concept. "Inevitability" has been overcome by man since he learned to make fire. to refuse to use this product. I am free to drink Guatemalan, Colombian. Haitian, or Hawaiian coffee or none at all. In a word, what any American The Communist party in every does about his food and drink is country 'goes in for what it calls personal and individual and if I. agrarian reform. It will be remem- as a free citizen, read a label on a bered that some Americans spoke . . cf e Chinese Communists as agrarian reformers. Even in the United States, the Communists have developed a program of agrarian reform much of which has ap- (peared in the program of The Your Health: Child Blindness Causes Cited By Herman X. Bundesen, M. D. Blindness in children is most often caused by a disease of premature infants known as retro-lental fibroplasia. This disease usually occurs at birth in infants weighing less than four pounds. In this disease, the retina or camera part of the eye, which connects with the eye nerve and transmits the image that we see to the brain, is affected. The blood vessels become uneven and increase in size, and a membrane forms over the retina. This causes it to disconnect from its nervous connections and thus causes blindness. Use Of Oxygen It is believed that certain changes in the amount of oxygen administered to these premature infants may be responsible for the disease. Therefore, oxygen, given to these infants in the incubator, is started and stopped gradually. ! Lack of oxygen also can be a ; cause. Even though our care for i premature infants has advanced to i remarkable degrees, every physi-! cian who delivers babies should I make an attempt to carry the j mother to the full stage of preg nancy. This in itself will help prevent many cases of blindness, due to retrolental fibroplasia. Strikes Early In Life Retrolental fibroplasia can develop in an infant as young as two weeks of age. Therefore, premature babies should be given fre- quent eye examinations to deter- mine whether this disease, if K is present, is progressing, j During the starting phases of this disease, it is believed some cases may be helped by the use of ACTH and cortisone. These won-i der hormones are very effective I in certain cases. However, once permanent damage has occurred to ' the eye, there is no help. If I am a million off, he will tell j me, for that boy isn't shy. But I won't be a million off for very long, because Beck doesn't believe in funds sitting idly around, either in checking accounts or in tortoise-moving bonds. He hit the ceiling when he took over the Teamsters' union's presidency and found some $9,000,000 deposited in an interest-free checking account, he said recently. Beck has no intention of seeing his union's money earning a profit for anybody else but the teamsters. Wealthy Himself ' Beck's investments these days draw the spotlight because he is proudly, independently wealthy himself and doesn't bat an eyelash over one of his sky-blue eyes if you call him a millionaire-labor leader. Beck is out front, but he is not by any means the only union official now swinging away from the old trade union theory that labor's millions to be safe must stay in deep freeze as cash or bonds. Just a month ago. for example, the American Federation of Labor Central Labor union in Philadelphia took unto itself a securities adviser from one of the local investment brokerage houses. This is the first time a central labor council, or a major union for that matter, is on record with a house investment counselor. The city's 195 unions will contact the adviser, Warren G. Ewing, through Joe Mc-Donough of the Central Labor union. The Philadelphia laborites did this on their own for several reasons. They want to be certain that their funds are honestly and properly invested. This particular labor council says it wants to be certain that those companies which handle its unions' multi-million dollar welfare and pension fund investments also are friendly to labor. That is the crux of the story-to-come. Smaller Unions Invest, Too With the growth of welfare funds, even the smaller unions have millions to invest. Thus the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) National Maritime union, with some 43,000 sailors on its books, recently deposited $25,000,000 from one of these funds in a bank for future investment by that institution. The bigger unions have funds totalling np to $175,000,000. One of these, the American Federation of Labor (AFL) International Ladies Garment Workers union, earns about $1,000,000 a year in interest on its health and welfare funds. And the Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen take in $1,100,000 according to recent reports. Probably more now. There are scores of such funds, and most are heavily invested in bonds, government and private. But the trend is shifting in Dave Beck's direction. Two years ago a Prof. Nathan Belfer of Pennsylvania State college did the most brilliant study of union investments yet made. At that time he found that unions invested only 1.6 per cent of all their assets in the market. Most of the 1.6 per cent was held by the National Brotherhood of Operative Potters. But in two years, the investment policy has changed swiftly. The percentage of investments on the market is not only nearer 10 per cent now, according to the experts, but the practice is becoming more and more widespread among ten-ions. The labor leaders are presently feeling their way in this new investment field. But give them a few years and they won't permit banks to invest for them. The unionists are fully aware that the banks and investment houses vote the stock in the companies in which the money is safely invested. So it is a very safe prediction, indeed, to say that before too long the union officials will make those heavy investments themselves, and vote on company decisions themselves. (Copyright 1954, Post-Hall Syndicate, Inc.) By Annis Lambert Make yourself invisible, walk ' into the Arlington, Vt., studios of j artist Norman Rockwell while he j is working and you may hear him muttering to himself, "Oh, gosh, oh, gosh, what a palooka I turned out to be!" But this man. well-known for his so - true - to - life magazine cover drawings is no "palooka." He is a top-notch, dead-serious artist, and though he is over 60 years old, he is still tickling the funny bone of Americans with his work. He was mentioned recently in the regular Grab Bag feature on this page. I am pretty sure that Norman Rockwell doesn't try to be a comedian, but many incidents surrounding his climb to success are extremely funny. One of the first of these occurred back in 1916 when he first visited the office of the magazine for which he now works. He carried the drawings he was submitting in a large black case made by a harness-maker. As he sat nervously in the waiting room, out walked two men, whom he later learned were Irvin S. Cobb and Samuel G. Blythe. They eyed the black sketch case and sauntered around it slowly several times with exaggerated frowns. Finally Cobb said "Young man, is that a coffin?" When Rockwell said no, Cobb replied, "Good, we were afraid you had a body in it." Editor Impressed The magazine editor was at once impressed by the young man's work and he started his long career with the publication. He is now one of a trio of cove artists along with Mead Schaeffer and John Athertoh. The three operate a "Mutual Admiration, Hand-Holding and Aid Society," to help each other out during discouraging times. Rockwell once worked for $50 a month as art editor for a New-York boys' magazine. Rockwell, sincere in his efforts W 'fad AP Newsphoto Norman Rockwell to get real feeling into his pictures, will go a long way to get "natural color." He once saw a farmer wearing a well-seasoned pair of pants which he wanted to use in j a sketch. He offered to exchange pants witn tne iarmer on tne spot with $4 thrown in. The farmer was skeptical and demanded the $4 in advance. Rockwell complied and the two solemnly exchanged garments under a tree. Rockwell's subjects probably portray America's "common man" better than those of any other artist. He paints pictures which make us see ourselves as we are and be able to laugh about it. He is no modernist, he has no "social significance" demanding to be recognized. He was once urged to "go mod- i ern" and did a stint of study in i Paris. But his editor was disap-j pointed with the results so he end ed what he called his "James Joyce-Gertrude Stein period." Gained Necessary Weight When World War I came along, Rockwell tried to enlist but was found eight pounds underweight. He quickly ate a huge amount "of bananas and doughnuts and drank quantities of warm water, went back the next day and was accepted. He was young and eager for action, but when officers learned of his talent, they made him a third-class varnisher and painter! He later accepted an inadaptability discharge, which one officer told him meant that he was "too stupid to perform his duties." Besides his magazine work, Rockwell also has done a few book illustrations, murals and other works in series. His Four Freedoms series is well-known. He was born and reared on Manhattan's Upper West Side. He remained single for many years, but once during a vacation in California he met Mary Barstow. whom he married in three weeks. She has been a great steadying influence in his life and often reads to him while he is working. She also makes him feel less like a "palooka." They have three children whom he has often painted. He used to sign his drawings Norman P. Rockwell, but he once explained that the P. stands for Percy, "so you can see why I dropped it."' Dorothy Dix Column Want Friends To Drop In? Then You Must Invite Them Alibi Is Literary; Advice Is Sensible BOSTON, Municipal Court Judge Elijah Adlow listened to the testimony of Fred White, 60 years old, and acquitted him of a charge that he kicked his upstairs neighbor. White said that at the time of the reported offense he was reading a book, "Policemen and the People," written by Judge Elijah Adlow. The judge counselled White: "Why don't you move from where vou live, and take my book with you?"

The concept of agrarian reform is that if the land of a country can be socialized, the country wiil ultimately become socialized. In Russia, at the moment of the 1917 revolution, the nationaliiation of land was not difficult, except in the Ukraine where it was necessary to kill and starve the peasants to succeed in introducing agrarian reforms. While it is true that the owner- ! ship of land sometimes results in human slavery, the agrarian r-i form phases of Marxism are aimed j not at the improvement of the lot of free farmers, but at government I ownership of land and government t management of its product. In 1 some respects, it is a revival of feudalism. tCopr. 19S4. King Features Syndicate. Inc.

We had lots of friends in our old home town, but just don't seem to make any here. We sit alone evening after evening and I would just love to have someone drop in for a chat or to watch TV. We have made acquaintances at church and at school. we have two children of school age, but no one makes an attempt to become more friendly. I try to make it plain that they are welcome, but they never come to visit us. I'm finding this a. very lonesome town. Aileen Won't Rush Things Answer : Never, never, dear lady, will you make friends by the sitting - at - home - waiting - for the - phone to ring technique. People whom you've met casually just won't rush things by barging in on you uninvited. Back in the -days when the pace of life wasn't quite so fast, it was customary for oldtimers to pay calls on newcomers to a neighborhood, but, like so many pleasant past customs, this one died out, even in the rural areas. You have overcome the first great hurdie in making friends by meeting many people at church and school. Doubtless many of them made the first overtures to you and now they are wraiting for a welcoming signal from you. Welcome Needed Perhaps they think you're quite boorish to neglect inviting them to your home. Vague invitations are meaningless. A casual "Do drop in sometime" conveys no promise of a warm welcome. Instead, make a definite date for your new friends to call. If you happen to find yourself the center of a group after services next Sunday, ask the people in for tea that afternoon. If you prefer, write or phone, asking some folks in for an evening of bridge, canasta or, most popular of all at present, a word game. Make your hospitality simple, or seemingly so. Don't strive to make an impression by serving elaborate refreshments. Make the atmosphere cozy, cordial and comfortable. If you have musical tal ent in your family, center the evening around music. I do suggest, however, that you don't try to depend on TV for entertainment. Folks can get that at home; when they visit they want companionship and good conversation. Get on the phone right now and extend that invitation. Hunt Man Charged With Incest After Daughter Is Killed HAMMOND, Ind. l.?1 A man charged with incest and assault was sought in the wooded Black Oak area Friday after the fatal shooting of his 12-year-old daughter. Sandor Singer, chief deputy sheriff of Lake County, said the man, Oscar Lee Moorman, may have killed himself. Searchers heard a single shot as they beat through the wroods near the Moorman home, but they were unable to find any trace of the man. Lavon Moorman, 12. was killed by two rifle bullets as she slept in the family's tarpaper shack, attached to a trailer. Her 3-year-old sister, Patricia, sleeping with her, was unharmed. Mrs. Onie Jane Moorman, 33, had filed incest and a s s a ult charges against her husband March 23, accusing him of having sexual relations with the little girl. He was released on $3,000 bond a week ago and had been living in a Gary rooming house since then. He worked in a railroad car repair shop in East Chicago. State Budget Group Making Tours Of State Institutions BLOOMINGTON, 'Ind. ify The State Budget Committee wound up a visit to Indiana L'niversity Friday and headed for Evansvilie State Hospital for the second stop on a tour of state institutions Saturday. Donald H. Clark, state budget director, said the committee's tour was aimed at getting advance information to help in preparing the budget for submission to the 1955 Legislature. Before starting the I.U. visit the commission approved higher salary schedules for some 150 doctors, engineers and technicians at the State Board of Health and about 500 Employment Security Division workers. Clark said none of the pay raises will be automatic but will be based upon individuals and money available. Increases given Employment Security Division workers will come from federal funds administered by the state. First Aid Refresher Course To Start Here Next Week A Red Cross first aid instructor refresher course will be held here next week. Instructors will meet at Red Cross headquarters on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday nights at 7 p. m. The nine-hour refresher course is for authorized Red Cross first aid instructors who have been teaching. It is not a course to train new instructors. Plans are being made for a course to train new instructors later. Robert Hotop, Red Cross first aid and water safety representative for Indiana, will conduct the course. Hotop was formerly director of first aid and water safety for the Waterbury, Conn., chapter and later became executive director of the chapter. Thirteen instructors have registered for the refresher course so far. Morton R. McConnell is chairman of the first aid committee for the local chapter. Financial Blunder Blamed By Senator On Administration WASHINGTON. April 9 l Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn) said today the Eisenhower administration committed "the most colossal financial blunder in the nation's history, either by accident or design." In a two-Hour Senate speech, Humphrey asserted the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve Board had deliberately caused a tightening of credit a year ago in the mistaken belief that inflation was still on the rise. Humphrey made his speech on what he called the first anniversary of the administration's "hard money, tight credit policy." Also today, the Public Affairs Institute published a pamphlet saying the "hard money program launched by the Eisenhower ad- ! ministration a year ago helped '. cause the current business slow-i down."

Congress Is Asked To Declare Law Against Reds WASHINGTON. April 9 m Sen. Ferguson (R-Mich) asked the Congress today to declare by law that Communists, by remaining Communists, voluntarily sacrifice their U. S. citienship. "This bill would . . .mean th end of the Communist party," Ferguson said in a statement marking the introduction of the measure with Sen. Margaret Chase Smith (R Maine) as co-sponsor. "It would not outlaw the party as such, but for all practical purposes would destroy it, because an alien has no political rights." Citiens now have the right of expatriation the right to abandon their citienship voluntarily. Ferguson's bill wouldallow the federal courts to declare that any individual found in a civil trial to have remained a Communist has automatically exercised that expatriation right. 100 Miners Wives, Children Surround Office In Protest WAYNESBURG, Pa. tP Some 100 miners' wives and children, shouting and yelling, ringed Crucible Steel corporation's Crucible coal mine office Friday and dared officials to come out. The women turned back employes bringing sandwiches to office personnel and threw up a human barricade preventing them from entering the building. Several of the children carried signs. Some 750 Crucible miners struck Monday in a seniority dispute. They have been .picketing other Greene County pits and about 3,040 miners are idle. i
