Our Modern Clipper Ships America's merchant marine is not one of such size as to cirawj gasps of admiration around the globe. For a long time it. has been one of those odd paradoxes that ships flying the flag of this great nation have had to struggle to compete on the world's sea lanes. This country's wage -levels reflect themselves in both the building and the operating of vessels. The costs too often price us out of the market. The condition is chronic. But there are still devoted men who refuse to give up, and keep fighting for the day when the United States will have a merchant marine of a size and consequence that will make the nation proud. Shortly we will see the first fruit of some of this determination. The SS President Jackson, first of a fleet of 20 new ships of the American President Lines, will sail on its maiden voyage around the world. The President Jackson is a cargo ship, part of the line's 200-million-dollar replacement program designed to help improve America's competitive position over the next 10 years. To achieve that end, the company is planning to introduce the largest and fastest cargo vessels ever seen in world ocean transport. And U.S. shipbuilders, practiced veterans of two centuries at their trade, are making fresh efforts to show that they can match their foreign rivals. Three others in the new series, the President Hayes, President Adams and President (,'oolidge, will come into American President's service in late 1955 and early 1956. The new craft will be unique in several respects, not the least the fact that though cargo carriers they will offer some modern, deluxe passenger accommodations. As for cargo handling, each vessel will be fitted with special pumping equipment to allow efficient management of bulk liquid cargoes, with up-to-date refrigeration controls for both freezing and chilling, and the most advanced loading and unloading facilities. There will of course be no sudden rush to use American bottoms for world commerce. But when shippers in the great ports of the Pacific and Atlantic see what these ships have to offer, they may take new interest in American merchant transport, - Voting Balances Shift Habits of thinking as well M doing can exert a tight hold on men long past their usefulness. TraditionnJIy th« farmer h»a bulked large in th* calculations of th* American politician. For the farmer was both numerous and powerful. He is still a great force in our politics, but he is no longer relatively so great in numbers. When the late Franklin D. Roosevelt was riming for office, one in every six voters was a farmer. Today, that ratio has widened out to one in every eight. And the trend is continuing that way. Fortune Magazine notes in its newest issue that there are now more clerical workers in America than farmers. Sooner or later, politicians are likely to adjust to these figures. Inevitably, the farmer's power at the polls seems destined to decline, though effective organization may keep it at surprising levels for a long time. The forces that shape this country and its elections—never stand still. The politician will keep a sharp eye on exactly who it is that is doing the voting these days. He who does not may find himself appealing to voters who do not exist in the numbers he imagines. VIEWS OF OTHERS The Unwanted Truth Dr. Wilton M. Krogman, of the University of Pennsylvania, may have set the scientific world back several years with his anthropological analysis of Miss America. Americans who think Miss America represents the typical American girl are kidding themselves, he told a group of physical anthropologists. "She represents an ideal of what is typical, and not reality ..." To say she is "typical", he continued, "is erroneous -.. She represents only a particular type." All of this the American male has Jong known, but he has relegated the inforamtion to the subconscious where we had hoped it would rest in peace. But now, the scientist, in his denial quest for truth, has brought it into the open. Possessing a keen, analytical mind, he has viewed Miss America calmly and without emotion, examining her features as you might some test-tube germ. Surely only a scientist, perhaps only an old scientist, could subject Miss America to such treatment. And, for the sake of science, perhaps it is justified. But we c»n only that the prospects of becoming like-minded could prove a deterrent to young men considering becoming acientists. With the United States so greatly in need of men In this field, it's possible Dr. Kropman's report might even be considered subversive. To science, we say. "Give as truth. But please. leave us a few illusions."—'Briitol iVa.l Herald Courier. But Is It Art? Portland need not. stand in awe of the Peabody College, Tenn., administrator who turned the art world on its ear this week by surreptitiously exhibiting a casiifllly-daubed canvas among the paintings of a traveling exhibit of "modern" works, A local Hvingroom holds comparable proof that " art" is not always what it seems, The Tennessee wag worked relatively hard at his impressionistic offering, taking nearly a full day k> cover a piece of canvas with yellow paint meant for highway centerlines, roof paint, house paint, and a touch or two of roof cement. The result brought "oh.s" and "ahs" from some observers. The Portland trick was much more easily accomplished. The exhibitors — and wife — merely lifted off the top step of the ladder they had used in a variety of domestic painting jobs and placed it on the mantelpiece. Splashed with all the colors of the rainbow, it seldom fails to draw some word of praise from visitors who have been able to see in it all manner of wondrous ideas Is this what, could be called "primitive modern"?—Portland Oregonian. Coffee Again It's coffee time again. E\en the facer drinkers say so. It's cool enough for the brew lo ta.ste just right. So friends who haven't been regulars at the coffee counters for months are back there again, sipping and visiting, and basking; in the aroma of a drink that is a first bnicer. Some like it black; some like it weak; some like it with heavy cream, and some like ii without any cream at all. Some like it dripped, and some like it percolated. Some want a half cup al a time, Hnd are willing to pay lor a whole cup. Some are not willing to pay the "upped" price for coffee, even if they get some "extra" in the saucer. (And you do, at some roffee counters.) The cooler days are .here; they may turn hot again, but by and larpe, it's the weather for coffee once more, and we are among those who break at "the break", and go out for n cup.—Laurel (Miss.) Leader-Call. SO THEY SAY There is no reason to anticipate any change in the Eisenhower administration.—Treasury Secretary George Humphrey. ¥ ¥ ¥ I left them (the Reroute! party) a doctrine R mysticism iiicl an organization. They will have to bide their time. Force and dictatorship reign today.
