Bombings Are Symptoms Of Peron's Lost Prestige Twice in recent weeks bombs have exploded fairly close to President Ptron ' of Argentina. It was no accident that the bombs and Pcron wore in the same neighborhood at the same time. He is reaping the intvilab'e harvest of the dictator. The burning and rioting Which followed the second of these incidents suggests either that Peron still does have an ardent popular following of some size, or that he has a well-trained strong- arm squad able to incite a mob. Both 'may be true. Enraged mobs rlestroved the headquarters of the two opposition political parties which have been m o s t vocal against the dictator, seeming bv these reprisals to hold them responsible for the attemnts on Peron's life. Nevertheless, thoutrh these eruptions were insnirtd by Peron's supporters, they and the bom!: (ittempts are symptomatic of the dHator's deteriorating pos'tion in Argentina. For a Jong time lie hcs shown no siirn of ajapnling seriouslv with his countrv's economic problems. Inflation is the worst of these, and a ment shortage is among the- newer aggravations. Peron ha" sought to maintain himself with a fine outward show of the symbols and trannings of power. His recent visit to Chile wns in effect largely a prestige stunt. Rut the substance — better circumstances for the average Argentine — he has less and less been able to deliver. The world — even the Latin American part of it — may be growing tired of marching men and bleating bands, of autocrats in resplendent uniforms smiling indulgently at submissive hordes parading dutifully hy. Peron has been getting by with this sort of sham for some years now. and his epaulets are beginning to fray. Since he has madfe something of a specially , of losing friends and alienating people outside Argentina's borders, he is not exactly well placed to seek foreign help in his current dilemma. Peron would be out of there in an instant if the Argentine army were convinced he no longer filled the bill His attempts to buttress h i s position by drawing support from other elements of the population have been only moderately successful. What these new outbreaks suggest is that the moment may he coming closer when the military in Argentina will decide that Pcrons usfcfnlness is at an end. Ho has been shrewd and clever in many situations, yet just as often inept and barren in Imagination. ;' This salt and pepper mixture of traits hardly recommends him for permanent membership in the International Society of Dictators.

Rodgcrs. Sympathy for the Yanks Now that baseball is u n d e r way again, an old problem has arisen. How do you stop the fs'ew York Van/- kees? But it's just posible. that this year the Yanks may have a few more rooters abroad in the land than they usually can count. The reason is that they've won four straight American League titles and world championships, and a lot of people would like to see them make it five. The Giants copped four straight pennants back in the 1920's and some earlier Yankees did it in the 1930's. Nobody thought Old Casey Stenge 1 would ever get into such select company, but he did. He might be just the fellow to set a new record with five. He's something of a curiosity in Ntw York, and around the circuit, too. M a n a g i n g the country's fanciest big-money team in its biggest and most sophisticated city, Casey wanders through the baseball world like a weary grizzled old gold prospector. The trouble is, he finds it. His competitors don't figure him for a genius. They don't know what the answer is. He just gets more runs than anybody else. And it makes him kind of admirable. Which is why the Yankees may get a little more sympathy than usual this time. Readers Views To the Editor: I am against the new sewer system for this reason: We have paid our sewer out and no one helped us do it. I don't think it fair for us to help pay for the new one. Let those who need it pay for it as we did. There Is no work here for the people. Some are not able to work if there were work for them, so why tax the people with something they can't pay? W. B. While Addle White TO the Editor: I am against the bond Issue. Let each district pay (for) Its own sewer. W. T. Ingram To the Editor: •I propose, that the old districts that have already (been) paid out be excluded from full payment of a new set-up. Let everyone pay (for) his own sewer. L. Fulgham Views of Others None of The UN's Business Secretary of State John Foster Dulles announced some good news from the Eisenhower Admin- j.sU'iUion when he deceived unequivocally that, the United states will not sign the UN's phony "Convention Of Human Rights" and "Convention on the Political Rights of Women." Mr. Dulles summed the issue up briefly and to the point when he declared those questions simply are not proper subjects for treaty-making. The secretary of stale was sound in pointing out. that "this Administration is committed to the exercise of the treaty-making power only within traditional limits," and not as instrument of social reform. The Convention on Human Rights and the Convention on the Political Rights of Women are simply ON instruments of "dogoodism" In fields which happen to be none of the UN's proper business, and which would not have any real effect if adopted. It is the business of each nation to establish for itself its practices concerning human rights and the political rights o! women. Honorable nations will have honorable attitudes on these questions. But whether UX "conventions" are passed or not, dishonorable nations will not let themselves he bound by anything they do not want to accept. Russia, for example. Is good at paying lip service and being guilty at the same time of the most inhuman of cruelties and violations of the righls of man. n is certainly ciicouraRing to see the Eisenhower Administration taking,a forthright and definite stand on the two covenants, announcing even before they are presented that the United States will not sign agreements which clearly are not. within the proper realm of treaty-making. —Chattanooga News-Free Press. so THEY SAY . 1 don't think we ought to go beyond the continental boundary In admitting stales. — Sen.

Peter ft/son's Washington Column — New U. S. Senate Roster Includes 53 Lawyers, 22 Businessmen WASHINGTON — (NEA)~ Lawyers again dominate the U. S. Senate, according to tabulations made from the new, first edition of the 83rd session congressional directory. In the short auto biographical s k e t c h es which members of Congress are permitted to insert in the directory, 53 of the 96 members Peter Hdson identify themselves as lawyers. It figures io 55 per cent. This is, however, something of a drop over the past 10 years. In the 78th Congress, 1941-43, there were CO lawyers. In the session that followed there were 70. What tho legal profession has lost in Senate membership has been more than made up by an increase in the number of businessmen. Twenty-two of this session's senators identify themselves having some connection with ausiness. Ten years ago the number was only eight. Sixteen of the senators Identify .hemselves as being farmers. This always a good political advertising line. But most of the senators run their farms as sidelines, or as absentee landlords. Aside from these three main occupations of lawyer, businessman and farmer, it's a little difficult ,o make any sharp classifications :or the new Senate. They are lawyers and farmers, or businessmen and something else at the same time. But among the principal or part-time careers listed by the senators are these: Businessmen Are Distinguishing Mark Eight bankers, seven publishers, four authors, four reporters, two printers, two engineers. Most of these are included in the broad classification above as businessmen. If there is one thing about the character of the new Senate which distinguishes it from others in the past, it is this greater proportion of businessmen. Seventy-seven of the senators say they are college graduates. This is 80 per cent of the total. Eleven of these college men bonst that they made the honorary scholastic 1 , Iraternily, Phi Beta Kappa. Twenty-three senators list mem- One of them—Pulbright of Arkansas—was a Rhodes scholar, bership in Greek letter social fraternities. Four of them must have been BMOC—big men on the campus—for they list membership in the honorary leadership fraternity of Omicron Delta Kappa. < There are seven bachelors in this Senate, which is a greater number than usual. For the benefit of any designing females that might be interested, the single men's society IP marie up of Green of Rhode Island, Russell of Georgia. McCarthy of Wisconsin, Kennedy of Massachusetts,. Cooper of Kentucky, and both Magnuson and Jackson of Washington state. Sixty-one senators, not quite two- thirds of the total, arc war veterans. Forty were in World War I, 17 in World War II and four In the Spanish-American War. Holland of Florida and Martin of Pennsylvania won the Distinguished Service Cross. Martin rose from private to major general. Douglas of Illinois and Cooper of Kentucky hold the Bronze Star. Senator Potter of Michigan was wounded three times, losing both legs, and Senator Douglas was wounded tw^ee. Sen. Mike Mansfield of Montana quit the eighth grade to join the Navy in World War I; then served in the Army and Marines. He skipped high school, but passed college entrance exams and became a professor. Senator Brlcker of Ohio was a chaplain in World War I. Three senators lost sons in action in World War II—Saltonstall of Massachusetts, Lehman of New York, George of Georgia. Five of the Saltonstall children, were in World War II. Only 31 senators list their religious affiliations. None lists membership in a labor union. Forty-seven senators are still serving their first term in the upper house of Congress, though a number of these had previously served as representatives in the lower house. Of the 49 who have been in the Senate more than one full term, 28 are in their second term, 15 in their third, three in their fourth. Senator Hayden of Arizona has been in the Senate 26 years and Senator George of Georgia 31 years. After this much service, it is probably safe to assume that, by occupation, they are professional politicians. Sunday School Lesson Written for NEA Service By W. E. Gilroy, D. D. Crurch uarrols and Christian Loves There are many things in the two Epistles Mint Sdint Paul wrote to the Christians at Corinth, the longest in the New Testament, But much in the letters has to do with the dissensions that arose so early in the church there. Particularly noteworthy is Paul's comment and counsel concerning these church quarrels, and espically his commendation of Christian love as the one preat means of overcoming them.' This eulogy of love rose to its I greatest height in the 13th chapter I of flic First Epistle. Whether t h e dissensions at, Corinth amounted io actual qunrrcls or not, we can not tell. But the difference of opinion and the divisions were evidently very sharp. Throughout . the long history of Christian churches, quarrels have frequently been bitter and sharp, degrading the institution that In its richtful organization oispht. to ' embody the spirit of the Lord whom it professes to serve (Kphcs- ians 1:22-2;ji, It is when honest differences lend to intolerance, and when those who professes to hold the truth do not hold it in love (Ephesians 4:15) or in righteousness (Romans 1:18>. that differences become the occasion of qunrrMs anrt ill will with the result that both love and truth are no longer present. The dissensions ' among the Corinthian Christians were very much like those that have appeared ncnin and again in modem churches. Who lias not seen n church divided rfbmit the merits, or demerits, of some min- isier? Onr .knows, also, how often such dissension has been sharp mid shorn;. At Corinth, they were divided over the respective merits of Paul. 4\\)polios and Petei. Some even adhered to Christ, not a.s pofi-1 se.V-mc: "11 MIR I. I lift othm iiiiRht have, but a« tht loader ol a party (1 Corinthians 1:11-13). Against all this Paul proclaimed that all-lnclusivencss of Chrtei as "the power of God and the wisdom of God" 'verse 24). I believe that it might be said that sharp as differences of opinion may be. there can be no quarrel where the Christlike spirit prevails. Other dissension among the Corinthian disciples concerned matters of conduct and the 1 problems that arose in following the Christian, way of life in a pagan community. Here again Paul proclaimed the tolerance born of love, the freedom of the individual conscience modified by an expedient regard for the conscientious scruples of others. (Romans 14:13-17; 1 Corinthians 6:12). But over it all is 1, Corinthians 13, of which will follow. stop declarer from taking nine tricks in a hurry? After some thought, West led the king of hearts. East signaled enthusiastically with the seven of hearts, and West continued the suit. The defenders therefore took four heart tricks and one club to defeat the contract. At the other table South looked ahead before he played a single card from the dummy. He could see what was likely to happen if the club fi- • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Conceal Anxiety From Opponents By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NBA Service A good player seldom gets to a game contract in no-trump witfi one suit completely open.

Declarer played the nine of spades from dummy at the first trick and then promptly won the trick with his own kitfg. The idea was to make it look as though he held only the blank ace-king of spades. South then entered dummy with a diamond and tried the club lineese. West won \vlthj.ho king of clubs and was so beguiled by the idea that South now had the blank ac* of spades that he never even considered leading a heart.

Just fired by MOM In a year- old row over his failure to report for "The Student Prince," I hear the singer is plotting with Sir Alexander Korda to film "Mario, the Great" in London, with music by Nick Brodszky, who wrote "Because You're Mine." Lanza owns the script. There could be a hot legal fight over the British film, though, because of MOM'S $800,000 lawsuit against the star for alleged costs on the unfilrned "Prince." The reconciliation meter still points to a kiss-and-make-up announcement from Walter Wanger and Joan Bennett. Even their quotes on the possibility are in tune. Wanger: "No comment." Joan: "I have nothing to Bay." Betty Hutton is taking instructions in the Catholic faith of her lusband, Charles O'Curran. The Fox announcement that the studio will sell its stock of 900 old movies to TV when the movie industry has converted to Cinema- scope, 3-D and all the other scopes, was predicted here months ago. Other studios soon will announce similar plans—biggest movie story of the year. Economy note: The U-I casting department called for exactly 12 extras to "crowd" into the Rose Bowl for the big football sequences in "All-American." The camera cuts from the cheering, huddled- together 12 to newsreel stock shots of the Bowl as tt appears every New Year's Day. TOO MUCH, TOO IATE TN Hollywood, says Ed Wynn, it's difficult to tell the difference between a genius and a guy In the midst of a nervous breakdown. Mae West is fuming over the reports, originating in London, that she has sold her life story to Fox and thai busty Pat Morrisey will play the starring role. Not true, says Mae, who will consult her lawyers if the Morrisey doll or her press agents keep telling the story. Take a good look at the actress who plays the circus performer whom Fredric . March is ordered to discharge in the slick "Man on the Tightrope." She's Germany's former No. 1 actress, Dorothea Wieck. who rose to stardom in "Maedchen in Uniform," then did a flopperoo in Hollywood. During World War II, she was rumored killed in a Berlin air raid. Nothing's been done to convert the treatment of "AH of Me," intended as Johnnie Ray's first star- rer, into a finished screenplay at Fox and the word's out that The Weeper will merely do a specialty in "There's No Business Like Show Business." "All of Me" was to have been the true story of Johnnie's victory over deafness.
