OUR VALLEY the 7*EXAS Southmost College board made its "no comment" position official Wednesday night when it refused a public hearing to John B. Hayes who had been removed as dean of the college, Previously individual members of the board and other school officials had replied "no comment" to questions from a Herald representative who inquired into the reasons for the removal. Wednesday night the board specifically, by formal motion, reserved the "right" to hear complaints or suggestions in executive session and upheld the college president, John F. Barron, in his right to employ or discharge "any and all" employees of the college. Technically, the board takes the position that it offered Mr. Hayes a hearing in executive session and he refused. That statement is correct. Mr. Hayes also said that: h? wished to be heard in public, and this the board refused. The action was legal. Whether it was in public interest, is seriously open to question, A college board or any other board charged with public trust and with the expenditure of public money acquired from taxpayers should always and forever keep itself in position to make a full accounting of any matter to the public. Without knowledge of whether the discharge of Mr. Hayes was justified --the reasons are still off the record-- the public must nevertheless note that Mr. Hayes was willing to state his case publicly and the college board was not. That must make the public wonder. That can hardly be considered a position tending to build public confidence in the college board. Executive sessions by public bodies are inherently opposed by our concept of democracy. By its motion last night the college board left a record in writing of its claim to the "right" of executive sessions. That record, unless expunged, will be long remembered. A Swell Idea Brownsville League of Women voters has started something that should be copied widely. The league is sending a committee of two to visit all meetings of local governmental groups. If every civic club in Brownsville did that, you may be sure we'd have better government Any time public officials know the voters and taxpayers are watching them closely, they do a better job. Automatically and naturally. The committees so far have been greeted with surprise and some consternation. The women usually art asked if they want to bring something before the meeting. "No," they reply. "We are here merely as observers. We take notes and report back to the membership." That is wonderful. It can' improve government quicker than anything else and keep it improved over tht long pull. Let's not make the league do all the work. How about committee-observers from other local groups? Oh, No -Not That! SUNDAY'S Herald published an article saying that Ava Gardner no longer would have her picture taken in a bathing suit -- nothing but dresses from now on. So there is not enough trouble in the world -cold wars and hot potatoes; Brownsville floods and Valley freezes. The small pleasures in life vanish and all we do in the Valley any more is worry about whether there will be enough labor to pick cotton. The world will go on without Ava Gardner and her bathing suits. But Would It Wreck Morale £)URING the big "Swarmer" Air Force maneuver, the psychological warfare unit of the first ''enemy" paratroopers to hit the ground gave the second wave a big laugh as they landed. Giant loud speakers were moved to the edge of the area where their supporting forces were to be dropped. As units of the 82d Airborne Division began to float down for the attack, the loud speakers blared out with the popular tune, "If I knew you were coming, I'd have baked a cake." Voice Of The People I Read With Much Interest. By E. O. OSBORN Rovlnj Editor ·yHE Upper Valley is going all out to get some top minor Jeague baseball teams to do their training in the Valley. To date we have heard little about any plans being made by the lower end of the Valley. Brownsville and Harilngen certainly have the playing fields and hotel accommodation? that should attract clubs. We recall when American Association and Texas League clubs trained in the Valley. The managers and players Uked it too. In fact playing schedules were arranged far ahead of the opening of spring training. It is not too much of a chore to get higher classification baseball clubs to train in the Valley. We attended baseball meet- Ings at Cincinnati, Chicago, New Orleans and Jacksonville, Fla., and had a part in arranging the schedules and the spring training programs. The whole idea is to get busy early with the entire Valley joining in the program. IT Is to be hoped that the United States and Mexico soon get together on visa regulations. A vast amount of business is conducted by residents of border cities. This border trade should be allowed to continue with a minimum of regulations, "THE horse show is certain to be.the feature attraction of McAllen'a Fourth of July celebration. In fact it seems assured of being the best and the largest ever held in the Valley. Entries have been received from Corpus Christ! and San Antonio as well as other South Texas cities. * · · MERCEDES i* getting well- deserved congratulations for winning the placque for the Work done in sanitation and cleanup xvork during May. This monthly award should spur other Valley cities to "beat" Mercedes this month. But we have a hunch that Mercedes will go all out to take the award each month. "THERE are some folk up in Montague County who are not very happy over some recent rulings by the United States Supreme Court. Particularly they don't like t tidelands ruling. They want to declare Texas' treaty of annexation void. And want to take the Lone Star State out of the union and make it a republic again. All of which makes for a bit of interesting reading but nothing else. But get a Texan mad and he does do some popping off. · » · DEPORTS from Monterrey, Mexico, state there is a real water shortage there. Drinking water service has been suspended in some parts of the city, the report continues. That shouldn't effect tourists from the United States. Very few of them drink water while in the industrial city of Mexico. Drew Senate Report On Wire-Tapping In 1940 Called It Un-American -In Washington WASHINGTON.--MP)--Discovery that GOP itnator* Brtw- ·ter'Of Maine and Ferguson of Michigan tipped the telephone wire of California airplane manufacturer Howard Hughe* ha» had two Interesting aftermath*. 1. Charles Dillon, who thii column revealed had made recording of his conversation with NBC Vice Preaident Frank McCall, haa now been asked to reiign ai h$ad of tht Defeni« Department's radio section. Apparently two Republican Mnators can get away with tapping telephone* and planting dictaphonei, but a bureaucrat can't 2. The Senate haa in its files an Interesting report on Frank Bfelaskl, the wire-tapper In the Amerasla case in which a Rhode Island grand jury accuses him of practicing "Highly Un-American actions" and of "emulating the viclou* Ge«tapo of Germany and the abhorrent OGPU of Pvussla." The full Senate report on BielaskI on the Rhode Island wiretapping Is signed Ky Republican Sen. Chan Gurney of South Dakota and ex-Sen. Wallace White of Maine, along with three Democrats, and is dated 1940. Yet, now a majority of Senate Republicans have been back- Ing this same wire-tapper, and demanding that those involved in the Amerasla case be prosecuted--even though the evidence against them was obtained by wire-tapping methods and illegal search which would not stand up in court. Here Is what a Rhode Island grand jury said about Bielaski when he was hired by Republican Governor William H. Vanderbilt of Rhode Island to tsp the phones of another Republican, Attorney General Louis Jackvony, and Mayor McCoy of Pawtucket Grand Jury Report "We condemn most emphatically the surreptitious practices, the un-ethical methods and highly Un-American actions of Mr. Bielaski and others associated with him in wire-tapping in Rhode Island, who would emulate the vicious Gestapo of Germany and the abhorrent OGPU of Russia. "Mr. Bielaski and his associates have willfully and deliberately endeavored to arrogate to themselves the supreme power over the privacy of the home and offices of law-abiding residents; and Mr. Bielaski has without shame or contrition boasted of wiretapping--a course of conduct sufficiently reprehensible as to have been described by the late Judge Oliver Wendell Holmes of the United States Supreme Court as 'Dirty business.' 'The Bielaski report recommended that the attorney general and this grand jury should use certain evidence in the possession of Mr. Bielaski, which evidence involved the personal lives of some public officials and of private, individuals and which evidence is not in and of itself a violation of law, in a move calculated to force these individuals under threat of exposure to testify as to certain matters of which the agents hoped these witnesses had knowledge. Like the sword of Damocles, this threat was to be used as a club over the heads of these Individuals to compel them by methods, most base and despicable, to give testimony of which they may not have the slightest knowledge of ipkling, merely to satisfy the whims and sadistic pleasures of these unprincipled sleuths. "Such procedure would be repulsive and nauseating to us. In our opinion it would be worse than the third degree methods of unscrupulous police, a"practice now happily discarded and removed from modern police activity. Intimidation and threats of exposure advocated by Mr. Bielaski may have been in vogue in czaristic Russia and may still be employed by the secret police of dictator nations, but they have no place in this country; they are not consistent with American ideals and American spirit; they are not in accord with our sense of fairness and decency; and they do not conform with the functions of a grand jury, as we conceive them. We condemn this practice most vigorously." Tourist Ambassadors Last summer, with thousands of Americans going to Europe alert Barry Bingham, publisher of the Louisville Courier-Journal on leave to help administer the Marshall Plan, inspired a booklet to American tourists reminding them that each of them was an Individual ambassador of good will. What most people don't realize is that the United States as a whole is judged by the behavior of American tourists abroad; therefore, the Marshall Plan administrators quite correctly reminded them of that fact. This summer the tourist travel will be heavier than ever, and one group which is taking its unofficial diplomatic responsibilities seriously is the Newman Club Federation, composed of 3,000 Catholic college students. Traveling not only to Rome, but through France, Switzerland and Germany, they will be in contact with students groups in those countries" and will endeavor to organize friendship clubs for the exchange of letters, books, magazine This is a far more important service than most people realize For merely dumping food in Europe, or sending material goods under the Marshall Plan is chalked up by Europeans as a cold-blooded bid to win cannon-fodder against Russia. Personal contact, on the other hand, is genuinely appreciated and really * ^TWs^wai that the American Legion recognized when it started its tide of toys to Europe.

That *his experience called conver?ipn brings a great amount of unity into life is obvious. The life forces are gathered up around a single loyalty to Christ Life has a new center around which to revolve. 3x:t all the life forces and affections are not gathered up around Christ. There are some that do not bend the knee and accept this new allegiance. This residue of recalcitrancy is variously named. Some call it "original sin." others "remains of depravity," "the old man." "another law working in my members." Psychology would probably explain it as "the driving urges in the subconscious mind." These three driving urges--self, sex, and the herd-have a long racial history and are strong and clamorous. They are used to having their way-they have had their way for R long time. And now into the conscious mind is introduced and built up .through conversion a new loyalty--loyalty to Christ and His Kingdom, intelligence, feeling, and will bend the Knee to Him. But doivn underneath In the subconscious m.nd are subjects which are subdued, but not surrendered. They drive for their fulfillment apart from these new loyalties. They obey, but moodily. They novr and then IfO on a rampage to break into freedom from this new Overlord. Sometimes they are just s«l.-en. but more often there is a definite temrion. There is a sense of inner strain. The soul u not re- laxed and at ease with itself. P.eligion is not the natural expression of the whole being, but the forced will of a portion of it Duty, rather than spontaneity, is the key word. The soul instead of being poised, is pursued--so pursued, sometimes, that 'ike the wild duck in the hunting season, it cannot rest to Teed. Religion is not release: it is tension, a dingdong, seesaw battle. The subconscious mind has not been converted. It is at war with the conscious mind. O God, my gracious Father, hi this the best that Thou canst do? Is rdijrion to bring roe no more than tensions and co»- flicts? Can I not be released and poised and spontaneous? I cannot hear within my bosom this constant conflict. Bid It cease and bid me be free. In Jesus* name. Amen. Barbs Don't spend all you make, advises a New York banJcer.

DEAR MARY HAWOPvTH: This afternoon as I sat outdoors enjo-nng the verdant summer air, the following reflections came to me. I am offering them for publication in the hope that they may help some along the path of life. Young lovers and honeymooners feel and declare, "Nothing and no one else matters so long as we have each other." In the first thrill of love, this is true. The world recognizes the self absorption of young sweethearts and smiles, knowing that in the normal course of human events, marriage and the obligations of parenthood will broaden^ their interests again. But if a man and a girl, in the name of love, flout the laws and customs that civilization has evolved for the protection of mothers and children, they suffer. If they disregard the conventions, however secretly, their happiness rarely lasts. Isolated Love Grows Tedioos IF THE WORLD and other people's feelings are of no importance to them, they are bound to discover that they are of no importance to the world. They have each other, but that is all they do have, and love cannot feed on itself forever. They may stick together from habit at least for a while; but eventually they will have only boredom left When young lovers marry, they have their honeymoon alone, but when they return they are entertained by family and friends, and thus drawn back into society most, pleasantly. Then as children arrive, the pair has still mere contact with the outside world. Their social life seems almost self-generated by their partnership; it takes care of itself. Thus when the intoxication of romance has subsided, a well married pair find they have a richly interesting life in common, a fine companionship blended of love anS affection that is even more percious than the first exciting phase. Marriage is the best of all foundations for happiness between man and woman. Any lesser attempt at matehood is a dreary, unsociaX lone compromise which only ends in heartbreak. Don't you think these thoughts are worth saying? CD. Ideas Square With RemHrj Dear C. D.: In tie main, your wistful obterva- tions square ·with truth and reality. All conditions contributing to, or created by, illicit love are detrimental to genuine peace of mind and peace of soul. And these qualities of composure, so necessary to enjoyment of life, are contingent on feeling (1) deeply self respecting and (2) on good tenns with other people--which is to say, approved by them. However, in rightly stressing the inevitably desolating results of taking wrong roads in quest of love, don't make the mistake of idealizing marriage too much. This seems to be your present tendency, which suggests that maybe you haven't been married yet, hence have only an impressionistic view of the rugged experience. In my hearing recently someone remarked a philosophic aphorism to the effect that "Bad companions are preferable to none." When I questioned the sense of the statement, new to me, I was toll it means, essentially, that isolation from one's species and from comunal activities is the unbearable status. Thus it is healthier to have association on any terms, even "bad," than none at all. if good neighbors are unavailable or unresponsive. At any rate, that is the direction in ·which healthy instinct drives. Marriage Isn't Idyllic, Though BY THIS TOKEN" even the sorriest marriage is an improvement upon living alone, in a social vacuum, no doubt And a good marriage is an immeasurably beneficent experience, conferring luster and joy upon the participants, as well as^hter- ally increasing their life-expectancy. But still and all" as tb.2 saving goes, marriage at its very- best Isn't the wondrous drama of steadily unfolding bliss that you infer, or that your comments imply. And I think it is safer for youth to have realistic idea, rather than an impossibly visionary view of what to expect. Thanks for your letter: ano here's a tip. If you-ve been on the wrong track, and have been paying for it, don't waste time drawing comparisons between what happened and what would have been a better choice. Start now translating into action the knowledge you've gained. Literally lead the life you approve in theory. M.H. Mary Haworth counsels through her column not by mail or personal interview. Write her in. care of The Brownsville Herald.
