The CIO endowed Governor Stevenson nnd so did many of its individual union chieftains. The AFL Jumped in on the same side, a move it had made only once before when Sen. Robert M. LaKolletle, the old Wisconsin Progressive, was a candidate In 1924. John L. Lewis Joined the parade, though he is generally viewed as having Republican leanings. Yet when the votes were counted, It was thoroughly clear that the rank and file of labor had not followed their leaders' advice In anything like the expected numbers. Stevenson's majorities In New York, Chicago, Cleveland, Boston, Pittsburgh and many other normally Democratic stronghold fell 'way short of past marks. • • • E VIDENTLY LABOR'S BRASS exerts no magic power pver the average worker. This lesson had been demonstrated resoundingly in Senator Taft's 1950 re-election In Ohio. But, although union leaders sought to avoid some of their old mistakes this time, they still did not appear to take sufficiently to heart one big part of that lesson: A working man Is Just like any other American. He has the same hopes and feara. He is a consumer, a father, he rears children who may live to be drafted, he pays taxes, he can be outraged by immorality. He Is more than Just an appendage to a union button. By the millions workers voted this time for Elsenhower because they law in hint some hope of getting rid of a portion, at least, of our vexing national and world problems. They plainly felt the Democratic appeal was narrow and perhaps a bit stale. They turned away from the certainly of Democratic rule; but they're not sure what will come, not sure if their hopes will now be fulfilled. • • » A S ONE WORKING MAN POT IT: "1 voted for Ike because I was sick of the mess in Washington. Now I feel like a man in a parachute. I've taken the leap but I don't know where I'm going to land. I'm waiting for Mr. Elsenhower to show me." It Is characteristic of average citizens in the whole western world today that they do not give political parties great leisure to provide solutions. They want action. If they are not "shown," they will speedily turn elsewhere. That could happen.In 1956 if the American working man is not •atisfied with what Elsenhower and the Republicans have done. But if he switches back, it will be because he sees once more In the opposition party the best hope that ail his broad needs will be met. It will not be because the Democrats promise to pass a good labor law. POLL-TAKERS FIND HUMANS TOO C6MPLEX I N THE PUBLIC-OPINION POLLS forecast a clear margin of victory for Governor'Dewey over President Truman. Instead, the President won in a close election. This year, those who dared to predict foresaw a tight race, with General Elsenhower holding a slender advantage but Governor Stevenson coming up fast at the end. Indications were It might go either way. Instead, Eisenhower won In a landslide. It is possible to argue that the miscalculation is greater this time than before, since It is reasonable to imagine that if a landslide is in the making a poll-taker ought to detect the signs somehow. Quite evidently, In the present technical state of poll-taking, the public-opinion poll cannot be taken as a forecast of behavior to come. Assuming all the best in the application of scientific sampling tech niques now in use, the pollster cannot tell what men will do on a ctrtain date in the future. He may prophesy with some accuracy attitudes and inclinations. He may test the national mood on issues and, to some extent, on men. But beyond that he seems on treacherous aoil. Men do not always do what they say they intend. They deliberately conceal Intentions, for a variety of reasons. They undergo changes of heart. Sometimes they do not act at all—or are not •purred to act. Against all these things, the poll-taker would teem to have little protection. Theyll Do It Every Time 111 taa 0*.

S. history. Harry S. Truman Is president of the United States oven though 33 million voters have said they want a change. And ho will continue to be president, with full authority and responsibility, until DwlRht D. Elsenhower tnkos over on .Ion. 20. * * m It's an awkward situation. Any cabinet officer or other administrator who makes n decision or issues a statement knows he docl so on borrowed time. Any diplomat, abroad realizes he is speaking for an administration which has had a no-confidence vote by the people. Fortunately, Truman and Eisenhower appear to be making the best of It. At Truman's invitation, Eisenhower has named a couple of go- betweens, and doubtless will name more. The transition should be as painless as possible. In the past the problem has been more acute, for two reasons. • # * First, until the 20th Amendment to the Constitution advanced the inauguration date from March 4, the time lag was greater. Second, not all out-going presidents nnd presidents-elect have displayed such willingness to cooperate as have Truman and Eisenhower. Herbert Hoover says in his memoirs that he begged Franklin D. Roosevelt to co-operate and that Roosevelt wouldn't. Hoover 1912 1916 1920 1924 1928 1 932 1936 1940 1944 1948 1952 VOTERS CAST THEIR BALLOT - Above Newschart traces voting habits in the U S from 1912 to the present.

Undoubtedly the most critical presidential switch came in 1860 when Lincoln took over from Buchanan. The South was seceding, a nation was crumbling. The/-head of the Army, Gen. Winfield Scott, said fearfully: A dog fight now might cause the gutters to run with blood." Buchanan thought no stale had the right to secede, but also that the government had no right to keep it from seceding. He therefore did little or nothing. » * * Lincoln didn't help him. Buchanan invited Lincoln to come to Washington, but Lincoln stayed home in Springfield, 111. Some historians feel this period of indecision may have prolonged the Civil War.

D Written for NEA Service The first trip to the hospital for a young child is likely to cause a good deal of apprehension and nervousness. Recently, a most interesting article appeared in one of our leading medical journals on the problem of emotional injury in the hospital treatment of children The article contained a great many valuable suggestions for the physicians in charge, for the nurses and for others who are directly associated with any treatment the child may have to receive. However, it also brought up sev eral important points which should be of value to parents in preparing a child for his or her first hospita" experience. It was pointed out, for example, that if the child, has been wisely loved, and given support and self- confidence, he will alsa face an impending hospital experience much bette. than If the parents are themselves suspicious or frightened. The article also said that the child best able to meet the hos pital situation is the one who is able to trust the physicians and nurses to treat him fairly. Most children are no ninnies, and real ize that painful procedures will probably take place, but that they arc necessary and for their own good and are not given in the way of punishment. In order to reach this desirable attitude, however, a child must have a firm foundation of trust in his parents and must realize that they are always fair and that he has their constant love. Witlj this background, parents can and should explain honestly and simply—to—tha-child what is going to happen and why it is to be done. If the youngster shows any tear, the parents should not be surprised at this, but should ac cept it as quite normal, and cer tainly should not make fun of the child's fear. DELAYING HOSPITALIZATION There are a few reasons, the report stated, which might lead to the postponement of hospitalization for an operation if the operation is not immediately necessary. A recent death in the family, serious difficulties between the parents, the presence of a new baby in the family, a move to a new location, or some similarly disturbing events may increase the youngster's fear of a new hospital experience. It may be well (depending, of course, on all the circumstances) to postpone a not-immediately- necossary operation until the child gets used to the new circumstances and reaches a stage of more emotional stability. In mentioning these points it is not meant to imply that the parents have the entire responsibility for making a hospital experience easy for a child, but they can certainly help. MYSTERY—WHO ORDERED RICCA CASE DROPPED? , * Investigations on to Find Source of Justice Department Wirt. By A.l«<llt(4 *>••• WASHINGTON. — Ex-Capone henchman Paul (The Waiter) Ricca was the center today of two Investigations within the Justice Department. Their objectives, as outlined by Atty. Gen. McGranery: 1.— To find out who sent a telegram from the Justice Department last week telling Otto Kerner Jr., U. S. district attorney at Chicago, not to try to get Ricca back behind bars. 2. —To determine the circumstances under which Ricca and three other former lieutenants of the late Al Capone got paroles in 1947. McGranery Wednesday repudiated the telegram, saying he is ordering Kerner to go ahead with efforts to re-jail Ricca on a 1949 extortion conviction. McGranery said he was not consulted about the wire and is conducting an inquiry in the Justice Department's criminal division, where it originated, to learn who sent it. When Ricca and the three others were paroled in 1947. they were serving 10 years each after convictions on charges of conspiring to extort money from the motion pictured industry. After criticism by congressmen and others, the paroles were revoked in 1948. Ricca took his case to the Federal District Court in Chicago, where Judge Michael L. Igoe ruled in August that, because he was not given a hearing, Ricca's parole- revocation was illegal. Appeal May Be Too Late It is this decision which Mc­ Granery has told Kerner to appeal to the U. S. Court of Appeals—if it is not too late. Justice Department officials said the time for appealing it may have expired last Saturday.
