On the Waterfront The whole country has a stake in the cleaning up of the dotkworkers' union, the International Longshoremen's Association, in New York City. For this has long represented a strong beachhead of the criminal element in the nation's labor movement. . The New York-New Jersey waterfront commission created by two state legislatures in 1953 constituted the first major effort to combat the evil. The law setting up the commission required that nil dockworkers and ship company representatives register with the agency to get work. It has the power to deny licenses to criminals, deary it has wide control-over hiring, previously a monoply of the union itself. Up to now the commission has failed to smash the ILA'p hold on the rank and file of dockworkers. But a couple of months ago, with the backing of Governors .Meynerand Harriman, the comission successfully rode out an ILA strike aimed at its operations. The ILA has felt the pinch enough to keep up a steady hammering at the commission, accusing it of arbitary and harsh administration. With this combat still in progress, Harriman demanded resignation of New York's commission representative, Lt. Gen. George Hays. He said he wanted a "commissioner of my own choosing" and a lawyer rather than a "military man." Harriman is said to have fell, (he commission was adopting a "military approach to waterfront affairs that was actually hindering a cleanup, lie desired a sol'ler policy to convince the union rank and file it should throw out its corrupt leadership. Carmine DeSapio, Tammany leader who is friendly with some ILA leaders, is said to support this position. But Harriman's attitude has met opposition from both commissioners. And now that he has replaced Hays, governor Meyner has made it plain he does not share Harriman's liking for the soft approach. Indeed. Mcyner has openly criticied Hays' ouster as possibly damaging to the commission's prestige at this critical stage in its fight. He does not want to see anything happen that smacks of appeasement of the ILA's criminal element. Since Meyncr himself is a Democrat,, these criticisms cannot be so easily dismissed as Harriman sought lo dismiss Republican complaints. The facts seems to be that Harriman acted in disregard of the effect his move would have on the commission's delicately balanced prestige. But in the end he may not succeed anyway in winning the commission over to a softer approach. Before Hays resigned formally, h« and his New Jersey counterpart named two key staff officers wedded to a ster- most unlikely. Most observers view Harriman's act- ner aproach. Their replacement by otheri satisfactory to Harriman now appear! ion as untimely if not unwise, and doubt that it has enhanced his own stature as a firm-dealing executive. VIEWS OF OTHERS Action, Congress. . . Uh, Camera! Hollywood has been in Washington. D. C.. this week and as far as We know the republic hasn't suffered—yet. However, at this Writing they were still shooting some scenes for a new movie there. and we may at any time hear an investigative committee's hurried call to see what's up. Theey're making iho movie version of a profitable Broadway play, "The Solid Gold Cadillac." Not having read the play, we're uncertain as to the significance of the bit shot In the House of Representatives Tuesday. It showed a bunch of extras and one intruding congressman sitting about the House—the extras, maybe goverment workers in need of the extra cash and able to get off, playing $19.43 roles for the day—and in the gallery. Spectator Judy Holliday got up as an actor- congressman asked. "Are there any questions." and said: "Yes, I have a question." She was escorted out. Guess well just, have to wait to find out what the question was. Perhaps something typical of the House debate in lax moments, such as: "Would the member explain to this august body the significance of the migration of the pink—stirrupi'd pome-granate weevil from the environs of Pawtucket, Phode Island, to Martinez. California, with stops en route at Waukengan, Keokuk and 6gd- een?"—Birmingham News. It Could Happen One of Russia's top men. which one doesn't particularly matter, said something the other day to the effect that the West, was going to have to wait until the crayfish whistled before the Kremlin changed its theme of world domination. He meant, of. course, that it would never happen. But it might—a crayfish puckering up and letting fly on a tune, that is. We never heard a crayfish whistle, true, and never really expect to. The National Georgraphic Society has, however, heard that crackle and others that "wheeze, honk, bark, groan or snore." The sounds of moans, whistles, bleats and bu/.- zes have been picked up through hydrophones lowered in the not. so silent depths of the sea. the Society says, and many specific fish noises have been identified. "Schools of snapping shrimp, by clicking their claws together, sound like fat frying, twigs burn- ning, or In large numbers like a loud buzzing snore," it relates. "A deep booming may 1* the call of groupers. A drumfish's drulilmnig is more rapid, earning the nickname of 'thunder pumper' for the fresh water drum. "Toadfish growl a low but loud note much resembling a subdued steamboat whistle. Various trigger fishes hiss, rasp, grate or almost bark. The grunts, to produce their distinctive sound, gnash their teeth together." Well, who knows? Maybe someone who has had a crayfish since it was just a little tad will train It, to whistle "Yankee Doodle" while waving a flap In each claw. Then we can go lo the Russians and begin a new era just by telling them: "You remember you said ... "—Jackson , MiM.l State Times.
