This is the so-called Bricker constitutional amendment now being studied by a Senate committee. Originally the plan had 63 signtrs, and it was launched in an atmosphere of distrust of the Uniited Nations, GOP opposition to Mr. Truman's policies, and a certain mood of isolationism. Mr. Truman is off the scene, the Tie- publicans are in power and have their own representative at the U.N. But the Bricker amendment still is being pressed. It would invalidate any treaty that denies or abridges a constitutional right. It would block control by any international organization of any matter basically within the domestic jurisdiction of the United States. And it would require Congress to pass a law before any treaty could become effective as internal law. This step would be in addition to the usual Senate ratification of the treaty. Senator Bricker of Ohio and other backers of the plan contend this change is needed because a strong President and a willowy Congress could combine to employ a treaty to enforce otherwise unconstitutional legislation as tht law of the land. The Eisenhower administration flatly opposes the proposal. Both Secretary of State Dulles and Attorney Gen- - eral Brownell testified recently that it is unnecessary and that, contrarily, it contains special dangers for the country. Brownell stated the legal case most strongly. He enumerated the barriers to imposition of unwanted or unconstitutional international authority upon U. S. domestic affairs: 1. The Senate ratification process, which gives ample chance to examine closely any treaty with internal effects. 2. The already existing power of Congress to pass a law nullifying any part activity. 3. The power of the U. S. Supreme of a treaty bearing on U. S. domestic Court to throw out any unconstitutional treaty clauses. Both Brownell and Dulles stressed that to put further curbs on the treaty- making power would be to reduce seriously its effectiveness and hence the strength and prestige of the United States in international diplomatic negotiations. From the evidence brought in so far. the proponents of th« Bricker amendment do not seem to have established that existing safeguards are inadequate. Nor have they successfully countered the ergumfcnt that the plan would hamper the President's conduct of foreign relations. In consequence, many of the original Senate signers have apparently fallen away. At this time most political observers give the amendment slim chance of passage, For the sake of our standing abroad and the continued wise balance of power between Congress and the Executive, this prospect is probably a fortunate one. Views of Others Fulbright Frank and Able United States Senator J. William Fulbright of Fayetteville, Ark., who will speak in the Memorial Colliscum at the University of Kentucky tonight is not only a man whose ability has been clearly demonstrated . in a number of fields of educational, political and public life but he has the highly developed trait of frankness which makes him a forceful and interesting speaker. As a Rhodes scholar, Mr. Fulbright attend. 1 ed Oxford University in England, thus gaining remarkable insight into the advantages and problems faced In connection with the student on a scholarship abroad. As a result of this background and based partly upon his own experience, he was the author, In the 79th Congress, of the Fulbright act under which the secretary of state was authorized to set aside $140,000,000 in foreign currencies resulting from the sale of government property abroad. This money was to be used for exchange programs with certain foreign countries. Also the act provided educational opportunities for American students and professors studying abroad in addition to a comparable number of foreign nationals who were given the right to come to the United States. Already this program has been carried out in a most effective way to further the education both of Americans wishing to study abroad and nationals of other countries who have studied here Mr. Fulbright was an instructor in law at George Washington University and became president of the University of Arkansas. In 1042 he was elected a member of the House of Representatives and served there two years, when he was elected to the Senate to which he was reelected in 1950. Willie World War II was still under way and while Mr Fulbright was a member of the House of Representatives, he offered a resolution providing for a general organization to be formed to keep the peace of the world by law and order. This was known as the Fulbright resolution and was adopted by a vote of 300 to 29 on Sept. 21, 1943. The Connally resolution, along similar lines, was introduced In the Senate on Nov. 5, 1943, by a vote of 85 to 5. These two resolutions paved the way for the United Nations. They show the step-by-step process by which American foreign policy was developed. In addition, these votes, as well as the 64 to 4 vote by which the Vandenberg resolution was passed by the Senate In 1948, show the bi-partlsan support which committed this country to the effort for peace through international organization and a program for collective security. Mr. Fulbright (s a member of the Foreign Relations Committee ranking third to the distinguished Walter George, of Georgia, who is also ranking minority member of the Committee on Finance. This means Mr. George, in the event of Democratic control of the next Senate, would have to choose between the Foreign Relations and Finance chairmanships in which event he most likely would choose Finance. Mr. Fulbright, second in line to Theodore Francis Green, of Rhode Island, one of these days Is almost certain to become the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee of the Senate. Thus as he speaks of future foreign policy he may look to the future HS one of those in this country who, regardless of the political whims and vicissitudes, is certain to have a large hand in shaping that destiny. Once upon a time Kentuckians were supposed to have thanked heaven for Arkansas which kept them from the tail-end position in many of the statistical tables on education. Due to lack of financial resources and large school population these states have faced serious difficulties which they are both endeavoring to surmount. As far as the natural level of intelligence and character and ability Is concerned, these states need offer no apologies. Arkansas has in its delegation some of the ablest members of both houses of Congress. There are few men in either house more highly respected than Bill Fulbright who has served in both houses. His comments on a tense period in the nation's life should be highly enlightening. —Lexington (Ky.)

Peter Bdson't Washington Column — Soviet Embassy Breaks Down, Answers Newsmen's Requests WASHINGTON —(NEA)— Any doubt about there being a new atomosphere in Russian relations has now been removed by the Sov- credentials admitting members of their organization to Russia as correspondents. In the past these letters have always gone unanswered and nothing ever happened to the requests. Not even refusals of the requests were ever received. But now such letters get acknowledgment. One received by this writer—within four days after the application had been filed—read in part: "In reply to your letter. . .please be informed that we have forward- let embassy in Wash ingt o n. They're actually answering letters sent to them! One of the standard assignments for American news bureau heads in the capital has for years been to Peter Edson file requests for ed your rquest to the appropriate authorities in Moscow for their consideration. "Sincerely yours, (Signed Pedoseev, First Secretary." This comes under the category of historic news. There's a Name for It Sen. Henry M. Jackson of Washington, during the tidelands bill debate, commented on the fact that ex-President Hoover had announced he would like to see the federal power projects sold. "I wonder." said Jackson, "what suggestion the former President would have with reference to the further change in the name of Hoover Dam? First it was Boulder Dam, then Hoover Dam. What Is the name of the dam going to be when it is sold in accordance with his suggestion?" Sen. Lister Hill of Alabama, \vho had the floor, said he didn't know. Whereupon Senator Humphrey of Minnesota observed: "It will be, 'The public be damned!' " House Do-Allkes Rep. Daniel A. Reed of Dunkirk. N. Y., chairman of the Ways and Means Committee and lather of the proposed tax-cut legislation, is the ranking Republican m the House of Representatives. He has been in Congress since 1919. At the end of his present term he will have completed 36 years of service. In this connection it is recalled that in 1946, the ranking Republican in the House was Harold Knutson of Minnesota. He had been in Congress since 1917. He was also chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee and he put through the postwar tax cuts of the 80th Congress. But in the 19>18 election, he was defeated. Gnashes Teeth Louder Cabled dispatches from Prague, Czechoslovakia, indicating that the , new Czech Communist president, ! Antonin Zapotocky, has stainless steel teeth have intrigued dental authorities in this country. Stainless steel teeth are entirely possible, for this material has been used for some time in making of partial plates, bridges and the clasping devices that are fitted around good teeth to hold the artificial teeth in place. Stainless steel is harder and more flexible than gold or silver or other metals used in dental work. The stainless steel Is usually employed in the parts that don't show. German dentists may have used stainless steel in bridgework and plates before Americans caught on to it. But the general practice has been to make the false teeth themselves of porcelain. For a Communist leader, the only advantage in having stainless steel teeth would be to help him utter the more biting words. Help Korean Teachers American schoolteachers are being solicited to provide 50,000 Korean schoolteachers with .new warm winter clothing for next winter. National Education Association has revived its Overseas Teacher Fund which helped European school rehabilitation after World War II. Twenty dollars will adequately clothe a Korean teacher. j U. S. teachers are asked to con- I tribute individually, or by schools. j But anybody can kick in. pistribu- i tion will be made by CARE. I Italy's Way Ahead of 'Em Press agents for the 50th Anniversary of Powered Fllzht—com- memorating the Wright brothers' I first flight at Kitty Hawk, N. C. ' —got the idea of interesting foreign embassies in spreading ithe j celebration to their native lands. One of the publicity men went around to the Italian embassy to sell the idea. Carefully he explained what it was all about to an attentive diplomat from sunny Italy. "Think of it!" said the press agent in his most impressive manner. "This represents a full half century of man's greatest achievement!" "Ah, yes, I know," replied the diplomat. "Last year, in Italy, we celebrated the 500th anniversary of the birth of Leonardo da Vinci." Brownell Plays It Safe Attorney General Herbert Brownell has apparently decided the Eisenhower administration is here to stay, for he has finally bought a house in suburban Washington, and moved in. The three months' delay in getting settled wasn't all the Brown- ells' fault, for the family really had trouble finding a house that was suitable. While they were looking, they lived in a hotel for a short time, then moved into a friend's furnished house in Georgetown, while the owner was away. But this routine was considerably different from the way the Brown- ells played it in 1948. At that time Mr. Brownell was campaign manager for Gov. Thomas E. Dewey's presidential candidacy. So sure was Mr. Brownell of victory in that race that way before election, he came to Washington and signed a deal for a big country estate in Virginia. After the votes were counted, the red- faced Mr. Brownell had to dispose of his real estate and settle down in New York. This time he played it safe, and waited till he was sure who had won. Welfare Statement Paul Porter, former head of OPA and Democratic handyman during the war years, made this observation on the Eisenhower administration reorganization plan which made a cabinet-level Department of Health, Education and Welfare out of the old Federal Security Administration: "In their campaign," said Porter, "the Republicans promised to abolish the 'welfare state.' Instead, now, they have made welfare into a department, fortified it by giving it cabinet status, and reinforced it by putting a great Texas Democratic woman in charge of it." the Doctor Says— By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Mrs. A. M. D. asks whether hepatitis is contagious, what it is, and whether there Is a cure. She says there are several cases In the school where her children go. This question probably refers to what is variously known as infectious hepatitis, epidemic hepatitis, or catarrhal jaundice. In all probability the disease is an old one, but because our troops during the war in certain areas sutlered irom It particularly, a great deal of new knowlcdne and new interest has come about concerning the disease during the past 10 or 12 years.

Now extras who play Marines in "Miss Sadi Thompson" are being asked not to whistle when Rita walks on the set in her tight-fitting gowns. Personal observation: Far be it from me to offend anybody, but with stoppers in all of the unbid suits and a total strength of 13 to 15 points. North naturally raised to three no - trump, a contract which should have been made very easily. The trouble came in the play of the cards, when South decided to follow a hunch. Mind you, hunches are part of the game. When you are confronted by a sheer guess, a hunch is better than no guide at all; and it may even be a decision that is made for you by your subconscious mind, based on the way that the'oppon- ents have been acting. In today's hand South picked the wrong time to follow a hunch. He had the feeling (incorrect, as it turned out) that West had the Queen of. clubs.

This ewror was fatal .East won with the queen of clubs and returned a heart, thus allowing West to establish his long heart suit. South had to tackle diamonds in order to try for his contract, whereupon West could take the ace of diamonds and cash the rest of his hearts to set the contract. South was wrong In following the hunch because he couldn't afford to lose a club trick to East but could afford to lose a club trick to West. Obviously South would have made his contract if he had finessed through East for Lhe queen of clubs. But it is important to note that he Would have made his contract even if West had held the queen of clubs and the finesse had therefore lost to West. If West is able to win the Bec- md trick with the queen of clubs (assuming that he has that card) what can he return? IJ West leads another heart, South ge£s a free finesse. No matter what West leads, Soulh is able to keep his stopper in hearts and therefore has time to develop the diamond tricks that he needs for his contract.
