River-Harbor Bill Can Wait; There's Time The Alton area had quite a stake in the $1,600,000,000 rivers and harbors bill vetoed by President Eisenhower Friday, ' This included our harbor and the deep-water dam just above Granite City aimed at helping tows through the Alton locks. For long the rivers and harbors bill has been nicknamed—and justly so—the "pork barrel bill." Rep.

A. A garden book refers to peaches and plums as stone fruits, and to apples and pears as pome —F.A.Y. A. The word derives from the Latin pomum, which meant a fruit and later came to mean an apple.

Had the bill been passed by Congress without these projects, we might have been alarmed. A veto of the entire bill, however, leaves the way clear for their inclusion in another bill. Behind the thinking of President Eisenhower in killing the program was a laudable principle. Con- grcsj long has needed a spanking for its indescrim- iriaie inclusion of every conceivable sort of a project needed to keep a Congressman's welcome back home. Engineers has been accused, from time to time, of being over-generous with the public's money. Most of the projects included were such that the delay of another year will not injure anyone. They are long-term projects, and their schedule is set up on a long-term basis. Actually, the veto might delay only a few of them. Certainly not any of those in this area, which won't be ready to "go" for several years yet. Perhaps a chastened Congress can return and melt a little of the "pork" out of the bill. as pome fruits.

HP shows how to create anrl package a product; how to Ret it on store shelves, and how to gain solid public acceptance. The book is written in a clear, practical manner. Some of the chapter headings include: basic elements of your marketing plan: How to analyze your product; how to develop a successful package; How to build you sales promotion; How to get the most out of your advertising dollar. Readers interested In marketing techniques will probably find a wealth of information contained in Lhis book. Douglas On Russia Books written by Supremo Court Justice William 0. Douglas are always of interest to the readers in this country. His latest book is "Russian Journey." In the summer of 1935, the author visited Russia even to the farthest corners of the, Soviet Union. His trip started in the southern part near the Caspian" Sea. He then traveled into the heart of industrialized Russia and after that into the vast farm and steppes of Soviet Asia. The result of the trip is a discerning and unprejudiced report about Russia and its people. Some of the conclusions Justice Douglas reached can be grouped under the following headings: agriculture; industry; art and religion; freedom of expression; and strategy and the future. Readers will find the book a timely one giving an important addition to the understanding of the Soviet World. Man VS. The Unknown j The challenge of the strange, impossible or dangerous has caused many people to do a number of things. "The Spirit of Adventure," edited by Whit Burnett, consists of first-hand narratives of man's conquest of the physical world. The editor in his introduction writes that this is a book in which man did not fail. It is a book of man against the ultimate, the unknown, the heights, the sea, and a host of other places. The arm chair adventurer can explore a number of places from the experiences of tlie writers. Readers will find as many definitions of adventure as there are adventurers. Many people will probably find in "The Spirit of Adventure," a book which is a cavalcade of achievements as well as a history of man's acceptance of the impossible. ued.

Until few years ago, people didn't think much about energy and the effects of it. Atomic and hydrogen bombs have drawn a lot of attention to the subject. The author takes the idea of energy and motion and develops it, showing the part they play in our every day lives. Some of the chapter headings are: Motion, motion everywhere; Motion of Water; Sun, Source of our Energy; Moving Electrons; Motions in Radio and Television; and Motions of Atoms. Readers will find energy becomes a familiar and understandable thing because of the fresh, direct approach that it has been given.

Some thoughtful consideration. (Copyrilht 19W. Kin* S~«»tur*» Syndicate. Inc.) Victor Riesel Says Double Civil Rights Standard Many ot the top union chiefs are self-made men and reflect the unevenness of unskilled labor. They forgot to put eyes in back of their heads and believe that only what they can see really happens. Thus they go to the national Democratic and Republican conventions and make ardent pleas for the rights of all men and resent those of their critics who tell them they might, be more sincerely received in Chicago and San Francisco if they could really say their own labor movement lived by the same principle they were urging on the two parties. We can, for the moment, brush aside minor transgressions. But how, for example, can labor explain the fact that even while its technicians were whipping civil rights resolutions into shape for presentation to the national conclaves, some mighty important labor chiefs were sitting down with mighty tough Tony Anastasla, the amateur gentleman of New York's nerve-wracking waterfront. It was that gentleman teamster, Einar Mohn, who runs that great marble hall of theirs in Washington, who conferred very secretly with Tough Tony and (vith another leader of the highly emotional and controversial International Longshoremen's Association. They talked in a Dallas hotel room about a month ago. It was Mohn's purpose to bring the ousted longshore outfit back into the AFL-CIO de- ery which hang like heavy black clouds over the ILA Those thunderheads may unleash some mighty nasty storms and all labor may get doused.

That session was held on Aug. 1 for about three hours — during which some honest labor chiefs heard some horrendous reports on the palming of millions of dollars of welfare funds by union officials with close mob connections. The meeting wag unannounced because its strategists wanted to go unheralded. They did not want to tip their hands, it was said, and they might have had to if 8 or 10 of us over-curious reporters hung around asking questions. They did decide to go after one crooked union so that an example could be set. They also decided to meet again In New York right after the Democratic National Convention — and are now awaiting the call of David Dubinsky, head of the International Ladies' Garment Workers Union.
