Warren — Content in Court Since early this year, Chief Justice Earl Warren has made no new statement indicating his desire to remain on the Supreme Court rather than seek the presidency. But there can be little doubt he feels the same. To Warren his present pob is the "most important in the world." He was exceedingly happy when he got it, and anyone who knows Warren's nature can be sure he is not simply rationalizing disappointment at not having gaind the White House. The truth is, of course, that Warren never did burn with intense ambition for the presidency. Most of the time when he allowed his name to be presented as a California favorite son, he made no effort outside that state. In 1952 he did campaign in Wisconsin's primary, but that was about it. It should not be thought from this that he had no ambition for the White House at all. He was a highly successful three-term governor of a great state. Men of such accomplishment seldom are content to rest on their laurels. He acknowledged he was looking beyond for new challenges. Three years ago he saw quite realistically the hold Mr. Eisenhower had on the American people. By any normal figuring, this probably meant two terms in the presidency. Warren felt that when this time was up his age would then be a bar. So when he accepted the high court post, he did it with the idea he was turning to a wholly new field for fulfillment. Having made the decision, he could not see the wisdom or rightness of ever going back to politics. In fact, his conception of the Supreme Court's role in American life is so high- minded that he is passionately devoted to keeping it out of politics. He clearly does not believe it should be employed as a sleppingstone to the White House, nor in any way sacrifice its independence as a separate branch of the federal government. Americans must applaud this dedication, especialy since the court had been badly mired in politics and dissension before Warren's coming to the bench. By the testimony of his colleagues and the law experts, Warren has been a resounding succes as Chief Justic. But many will feel regret if he never reaches the White House, for they see his as a man in whom integrity, high ideals and practical political mastery are remarkably blended. He is the living proof that some of our best qualified men do not gain tht presidency. VIEWS OF OTHERS Open Season On Parents This Is open season on parents of children of school and pre-school age. Book salesmen — most of them from other counties or states — have been making the rounds, offerinRS sets of children's books, at prices from about $50 to $200- Some of ihe offers include several seUs of books. Usually they are offered as supplements to a child's education from the time he learns to talfc. on through high school. Some of these sets of of books have been published each year for so long that parents recall using an earlier edition in their own childhood. These sets of books, enough to fill a shelf In a bookcase, have too much weight and volume to be carried about readily from door to door. So salesmen usually show sample books which contain selections from the set. However, it seems possible that some parents would like to see the complete sets of several kinds of children's books before making an investment in any. If enough persons were interested in doing so, they might arrange for different sets of books to be displayed in the same room at school, at the city library or elsewhere, under auspices of a book club, or Parent-Teacher Association or some other civic group. This would enable parents to decide which, if any. set of books they might want, and to learn what, if any. standard price is charged for the set. Since most of the popular sets of books have been published for so long, parents whose children no longer are using them. As it is. much is left- to the imagination — including how much somebody else would have to pay for the same set of books if they were not so fortunate as to have the publisher's representative select them as the lucky parents to receive a set practically free, except for maybe 50 or 100 bucks, plus shipping charges.—Lumberton tN.C.) Robe- sonian. Talking With Sun-Power Talking around the world via the rays of the sun would have been, when Grandpa was a boy, an utterly fantastic dream. But then, talking over a wire at all would have been just as inconceivable —for just 79 years ago Alexander Graham Bell's crude telephone was a new gadget of which few had heard. But this week down in Georgia they tapped sunlight for energy, charged a battery with it, and made the first solar-powered telephone call. That's progress ... in electronics. A practical step unfolded by the laboratories of Bell Telephone, forerunner perhaps of emancipation from the ordinary sources of electricity. Another route to that Is the atom, which expert- enters are harnessing for the same purpose. Sooner or later the point will be reached where we can quit the river installations and the steam plants, and rely on a fuel source that is inexhaustible. That would be the atom, or it would be the sunshine. Both exist abundantly. They hold the world together, and exercise the major influence on its survival. Slowly are we learning some of the basic principles. Slowly are we availing ourselves of perpetual servants. Considering the storehouse of infinite knowledge—the boundless array of scientific fact out of which God Compcsed the earth and the universe—man still doesn't know very much. The sun is a power plant that has been there since the start creation. Wrapped within what still are mysteries are blessings of which we haven't even dreamed. Some of them are being discovered slowly, like how to charge a battery, and in the light of it we are very glad and very humble.—Nashville Banner. The Store Front The early Western store, with the false front which gave it a two-storied apearance, is familiar to every fan of film horse operas. The modem "front" organization is equally familiar to almost everyone. Now it seems. Mangum, OkJa.. has a grocery store which might be considered a "front" for a checker player. It present owner bought it because he was having difficulty finding opponents for his favorite game. He installed a checker board and used his groceries to attract some opposition. This innovation might be adapted to meet the needs of those old fashioned Americans whose love of conversation seems to be fighting a losing battle, with 30 million television screens. Perhaps what these lovers of conversation need is neighborhood grocery stores complete with pot-bellied stoves and cracker barrels.—Florida Times-Union.

"Oh, to Be in England ...' Peter tdson's Washington Column — Brownell Is Legal and Political Pivot for Ike's Administration WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Ever since Attorney General Herbert Brawnell rushed back from Spain after Ike's heart attack he has been one of the busiest men in town. He quickly put the kibosh on talk of delegating some presidential powers to Vice President Nixon. In conference with Republican National Chairman Len Hall and .presidential assistant Sherman Adams he suggested the policy of all GOP presidential hopefuls keeping mum, He was also in on the "carry on as usual" decision of the GOP National Committee. . During the tense weeks since Ike's attack he has kept in close touch with Sherman Adams on what matters should be brought to Ike's attention during his convalescence. He spoke with Secretary of State Dulles about several legal angles to the upcoming foreign ministers' meeting at Geneva. He has had daily, frequent telephone conversations with all other members of the Cabinet. , I On top of nil that Brownell's | switchboard at the office and phone j at home have been swamped with! calls from key GOP politicians alij over trying to find out what's going on during Ike's illness and! asking advice on what moves to! make. I These activities demonstrate the! two vital roles Brownell has on: Ike's team and the part he willj play in helping to run the govern-' ment during Ike's convalescence. As chief legal ofi'icer for the administration he has been a key^ consultant on every one of its | major programs and decisions. That includes legal angles on foreign affairs which takes up a surprising amount of his time. As former campaign manager for Tom Dewey, an original mem. ber of Ike's campaign team and mastermind of the defeat of the Taft forces at the convention. Brownell is also the key political expert and consultant of the administration. Just how much political power Brownell will wield in the choice of the GOP presidential candidate, with Ike apparently out of the race, remains to be seen. Brownell's support could be vital to a candidate. This is true because whatever open support Ike gives to a candidate will be determined after he has gotten Brownell's views on the matter. During the course of a normal week's business beiore Ike's illness the attorney general usually was on the phone or met with the President more frequently than with any other Cabinet member. Brown ell : s dual roll of legal and political advisor to Ike was responsible for this. Brownell is a smooth, confident man and cool under fire arid crisis. Ike likes these qualities in the men around him. He especially appreciates the fact that although Browne,! 1 is a real political "pro" he is not the back-slapping city hall type. Brownel is a conservative man about his personal life, most of which is wrapped up in activities with his family. He seldom drinks, and the Brownells do a minimum of entertaining and party-going. His hair is thinning but he has kept himself lean and young-appearing with the proper diet and exercises. He's not vivacious but is generally good-natured and seldom loses his temper. One of the biggest jobs he faced taking over the Depa rtment of Justice was to restore order in the department and to attract some high-caliber attorneys. Under the previous administration the Justice Department had suffered from weak administrative policies and the reputation of federal attorneys was low. He now has a waiting list of applications from top law. school graduates who want jobs. And the prestige of service at Justice has' been raised considerably under Brownell. Among the most influential members of Ike's Cabinet, Brownell at 51 is .the youngest and probably has the most practical political experience. Yet he has had least mention as a possible presidential candidate himself. Close friends say there could be a boom for Brownell. But the absence of such a boom so far is the best clue to his political ambitions and talents. His most effective, satisfying work is done behind the scenes. He's the careful planner, the expert who finds loopholes in the other fellow's argument, the shrewd legal analyst, the political tactician. The unknown question is whether he's a vote-getter for himself as well as for others. Er$kine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD By ERSKINE JOHNSON' Second Greatest Sex."

JORDAN, M.D. Once in a while one rims onto a person who says he or she, has never had any trouble sleeping. More common to most of us is the experience of sleeping well a good deal of the time but having spells when sleeplessness hits us and we set up in the mornljg unrefrcshed. A few people have chronic insomnia more or less continuously and this constitutes quite a problem. Mrs. C. evidently fulls in the; latter category. She says "Whatl causes Insomnia? I have'had difficulty in sleeping for the last 23 years, since carrying my daughter and have become a walking drugstore. If I don't take sleeping tablets of one kind or another I lie awake night after night and get so weak I stagger when I walk." Sui-h an exaggerated kind ol sleeping difficulty Ls hard to explain. It is possible, of course, that it started us a mild form of insomnia I but that Mrs. C. has become nc customed to the use of sleeping tablets to such a degree that she is unable to have a restful night without them. This Is an unfortunate situation and shows why It is desirable not to get in the sleeping pill habit if one can possibly avoid It. Most Insomnia Is probably caused by inability to throw off the worries and cares of the daytime. The person who starts thinking of the office within a few minutes of turniiiR off the light at night Is likely lo develop chronic sleeplessness. The longer this goes on the worse it gets. Undoubtedly, many people who complain of insomnia sleep better than they think They may be waker'ul (or short periods two or three times during the night, but really get all the sleep they need. Oftm they m»k« thing* WOIM by worrying about not sleeping This is unnecessary, as most people can get nearly as much rest for their bodily functions by lying quietly and relaxing in bed as they would if they were sound asleep. Since worry is the principal cause of insomnia. Its management is apparent. Before going to bed some occupation which takes the person's attention aw'ay from the daytime cares is desirable. This may take the form of reading some book to one's self, or aloud, preferably one which is rather dull Other people may relax better if they do hard work of some -kind The choice of pre-bedtime occupation should be made individually on the basis of personal likes and complete removal from the menta activity which is the major source of worry. Sometimes a warm arink just before retiring is helpful. Training oneself In muscle relaxation has been found practicable by many. The drugs which Induce sleep should be avoided in chronic insomnia. Most of them are habit- forming and their effect wears off If \ised often. Alcohol to bring on sleep should be avoided also.
