PAGE EIGHT BLYTHKYILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 195« 7 Previous Lobby Probes Produced Little Results By JAMES MAKLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — In the past 102 years Congress has investigated lobbying seven times. The result: a lot of bad publicity for lobbyists but no law to control them. Now Con- gresi seems ready to start an eighth investigation. There is a law requiring lobby-" Ista here to register with Corigres and report on their spending. It did not result from an Investiga tion. It was passed without much examination In 1946 when Congress was reorganizing Itself. There is nothing illegal or wronj about lobbying. Every individua or group has a right to try to ge Congress to pass the kind of leg islation It wants. But lobbying can cross over Into the corrupt class by the way money Is used to in fluence voting. This is an election year and whether this new inquiry does a real job or shadow-boxes depend: on: (1) The willingness of the nil Senate to make an all-out inquiry an attitude which will be revealed in the authority the Senate give; its committee; and (2) whethe: the Democrats and Republicans on the committee let their investiga tion degenerate into a pdlitica fight. The Senate is expected to ere ate a special committee made up equally of Democrats and Repub licans. The first such investigation b; Congress was in 1854, when lobby ing had become a national . dis grace. The last was in 1950 when a House committee, also made up equally of Democrats and Republi cans, got involved in intense pi tisanship. The chairman of that committee the late Rep. Frank Buchanan (D Pa), descriged lobbying at the enc of the inquiry" as a "billion-dollar industry." A report by his committee dis closed that 152 corporations spen $32,124,835 on "activities relating to attempts to influence legislatioi between 1947 and 1950" although they had reported only $750,000 under the Lobbying Act of 3946. Thirty companies refused' to tell whal they spent.' Congress did nothing then to make the Lobbying Act stronger. There are a lot of defects in the present* law but the basic one seems to be this: Congress required lobbyists to register with Congress but did not appoint any individual or group to police the law and the lobbyists.

Duchess of Windsor Tells Of Romance in Autobiography NEW YORK tfl—The Duchess of Windsor says she was "unprepared and unarmed" for the storm stirred up by her romance with former King Edward vTLT more than 19 years ago. In the first installment of her autobiography published in the current McCall's magazine, the former Wnllis Warfield Simpson writes: 'Rather late, in life I found myself not only in love but loved as few modern women could ever expect to be loved, with a great throne at stake, a vast empire seething, and with the most obscure details of my previously unnoticed existence reverberating in the four corners of the earth — when these extraordinary happenings overtook me, slowly at first, then with the rush of an avalanche, I was unprepared and unarmed." Edward abdicated the British throne Dec. 11, 1936, for "the woman I love." His romance with the Baltimore divorcee had produced a crisis throughout the British Empire. "Nothing that I had known before or learned seemed to apply to my —w circumstances, the duchess i •ites. "I stood quite alone and de- new wr fenseless in the eye of the storm Mistakes were made by me and b others whom I might have infh enced but for the lack of commun cation and understanding. "Had 1 had my way, when at th eleventh hour full understanding f nally came to me, this story woul have had a different ending, if in deed there had been occasion t write it at all." A sidelight in the first chapter 1 the duchess' admission that sh rarely looked before she leapet She writes: "With me, however, it has been base of just landing, and more of ten than not in defiance of the max im of never leaping before taking prudent look. Quite apart from oth er differences, women seem to b divided into two groups—those wh reason and those who are foreve casting about for reasons for the. own lack of reason. While I migh wish it to the contrary, the recor of my life now that I have for th first time attempted to see whole, places me -with the seoon group. And I see something more this has been, if not my persona tragedy, my continuing folly." HOT PRICE FOR COOL COMFORT!

The complaint challenges the constitutionality of the 1935 law under which the track would operate. It also contends that the Racing Commission Is authorized to act only on horse racing franchises. The suit, latest development in the year-old squabble over proposed dog racing at West Memphis, was filed by four Crittenden County residents. They were the Rev. Ralph Hlllis, E. W. Bigger, J. C. Johnson and Malcolm P. Scott. The Rev. Mr. Hlllis, a Methodist pastor, Is president of the Crltten- den County Ministerial Alliance, which has fought Southland since plans for the track first were announced. Southland recently won a round in the battle when Chancellor W. Leon Smith of-BlythevlUe ru the Racing Commislon overstepped its authority when it rejected Southland's franchise application last December.
