Earl Warren' has made no new ••' statement indicating his desire to remain , ,-on thV.Supreme Court father; than seek. '•ithe. presidency,' But there can be. little "doubt 'he .[eels the 'same. To Warren his present job'is the "most important in the world." He was exceedingly happy when .he got .it, and anyone knows. Warren's ,:,;jiature .can be sure -he is -not simply ra- - iiorializing disappointment at" not having. / gained the White House. The truth. is, .of , J course; that -Warren never did burn with ?• intense ambition for the presidency. Most I 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 pri- i'-inary, but 1 i' IT SHOULD NOT BE .thought from : this that he had no ambition for the ;• White House at all. He was a highly Sues' cessful three-term governor of a great < "•state. Men of such accomplishment sel- ; dom arc 'content to rest on their laurels. r- He acknowledged he .was looking beyond : for new challenges:' Three years ago he . • saw quite realistically the hold Mr. Eisen-. 2 hower had "OH 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 • fill• fillment. Having made the decision, .he' : i could -not -see the wisdom or Tightness of ' ever going back to politics.

Because, -the. truth is, Joan is scared silly 'of .flesh-and-blood audiences and . insists that she . can't act in front of-'em. -"I've never done, live TV and I 'never will," she exploded. "They, tellme J'd feel secure if I just tried it once,.but I won't do it!' . "I get hot and cold when I think of the millions oi people, who.-would be, out there looking at me," she added. "I don't mind doing film TV-" shows. If soniething goes .wrong, 1 know I can do" it over ' Miss Crawford will descend on a.dozen or so main-stem"eastern and mid-western cities, including Chicago, /Philadelphia, Boston and Detroit to advise them of the merits of her .two upcoming-filnis, "Queen Bee," arid "The Way'-We Are."' ' .'"'•' ;' '. IN FACT, HIS conception of the Supreme Court's role in American, life is so high-minded that'y de.vqt-. ed to keeping it;oul of politics. He clearly. does not'.b'eUeve'-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, especially sin'ce the court had been badly mired in politics and dissension "before Warren's coming to ihe bench. By. the testimony of his colleagues and the law experts, Warren has been a' resound^, ing success as Chief .Justice. .But many will feel regret if he;never reaches the. While House, for4hey see Him 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 the presidency. . . • , . LIVE THEATER audiences give Joan almost as big a 'shudder as the unseen video watchers. But she.gets around (his frightening situation by, making a surprise entrance from .the rear of Ihe theater and waltzing down the aisle chatting and shaking, hands with the audience.; .' ; ^;'y;.v-v--, "Sometimes," Joan admitted, "I get ..the feeling that-', 1 people just- dare 1 you to be good, but if 1'gct 1 - tb know them lirst—and'l feel I can if I walk through the audience, —then I think 1 have half a chance of making a good impression.. "During that walk down (he aisle," she explained, "they've become my . friends, not my enemies." . JOAN, ON TOUR, is somewhat like'a Kansas cyclone. . • "I get iip at six," she said, "have my first appointment at eight, us- ually'along.with breakfast. I have' to make five or six clothes changes : a day so I won't be .photographed,. wearing the same, suit with the same people. .'. . • •".Then," she added, "I make _ about 20 tape recordings daily for disc jockeys arid general 'radio broadcasts; -attend press conferences, luncheons.and dinners, ' "Sometime, I fed ' like I'm running for public office with 'all the handshaking I.have to do." No—Joan :doesn't take vitamins. clared that .the ' government's monthly finan.cial''.-allotmerit has made .the Indians "lazy." .' ... - "It : has taken away their; incentive," she .'.explained. ."They used to do beautiful . bead • and leather work;":but -they,don't, do anything now .because .the. food stamps. Ihey get give them just enough tb eat and that's all they care about." V . .. •. • Kim described -her people as "sensitive and wonderful," and riot the ''bloodthirsty heathens" that they are often depicted .as being in motion pictures. • •" • "The Indians resent those .'wild west pictures-where they're always shown whooping it up around a covered wagon. They really have a beautiful philosophy and th°y 'don't trample one another to death trying to; fight their way up the ladder of success!" NEW YORK-Pebple 1 think of New York in .terms ;of.,soaring, buildings and shining (well rela lively shining) streets bustling with people'arid cars and noise and •excitement.

Frederick Othnian An Ex-Juror Favors Mikes Post Office Pamphlets IN ORDER TO SAVE trouble'for itself and for its patrons the Post Office Department has issued a pamphlet on the wrapping and packing of Christmas presents for mailing. Another pamphlet, previously issued, explains rates and answers questions on rates, fees, special services and protection of parcels in transit. '.We have all had the experience of receiving a Christmas gift in a package that arrives in shreds. Sometimes the gift is unbroken and sometimes it isn't. In either case a 'flittle more attention on the part of the •sender could have assured its. arrival in 'top condition. Both the Post Office Department pamphlets can be obtained free. When you start lo think about mailing Christmas packages this year why not begin by getting these pamphlets and - reading 'them carefully? Follow the in. siructions. The extra few minutes time •you spend may save disappointment. Wrapping your packages properly will also make work easier for the people in the post office who must handle it during their busiest time of the year.'; • IP THE audiences across the country give the celebrated acrless a bad time, it won't be her fault. She'll have all the trimmings—just like the Queen of England departing on a 'round-the-world lour. Her retinue include a hair dresser, wnrdrobe woman, secretary and publicity agent (an all girl team), plus 50 pairs of shoes. 97 gowns, 12 suits and 10 fur pieces and a palch of jewelry. KIM. WINONA, the beautiful Indian girl who stars in CBS-TV's new '.'Brave.Eagle" series, blames - the American government for con-, tiriucd "common law" marriages among her/people. ' Kim', granddaughter of a Sioux . princess, complained . that many Indians don't get "married" al all since the government outlawed their ancient wedding rites. "They had a beautiful rilual," Kim' said, "but my people were told their ways were pagan and stupid and yours ways were better. "What nobobdy seems to urtder- sland," she added, "is that your ways sometimes seem just 1 as pagan to us." Now, Kim says, the Indians just go "and live with one another" without benefit of clergy—and without benefit of tribal hocus- pocus. THE 22-YEAR-OLD actress, who left the Sioux reservation in South Dakola when she was 16, also de- KIM ADMITTED she personally had qulle a lime trying to adjust herself to fast-paced • Hollywood. "But," she' said, "I am .pretty ^free-thinking and I've broken with .most of the traditions of my people." , She admitted,' though, thai she still suffers from one of Ihe red- man's greatest maladies—superstition.' . '"I still believe''in_ using love charms to keep • your, husband," she laughed. ' : The raven-haired glamour gal has- been married four years to Harvey Buck, who .is of Indian extraction. "Like 'all Indians," Kim 'said, "I don't believe in divorce. I think one husband' is as bad as the next. Once you have one you might as well stick with him!" "Besides," she added, "we never fight. You see, I'm Sioux and Harvey's grandmother was a Custer. I guess our forefathers settled the family differences some lime ago-during that Little Big Horn incident!" (International News Service) .

Peter Edson White House, GOP Team, See Ike In Running Kenya In Transition ' "' VICTORY OVER- THE terrorist Mau Mau forces is signified by Britain's plan to withdraw 3,500 troops from Kenya leaving a skeleton force of 2,500 men and 3,000 native troops there. This reduction is being accompanied' by a gradual' re- .turn to-normal life. Authorities are conV. fidehl that the Mau Mau has been srhashV ed and survives only as a, few .bandit groups. The. causes that produced the 'terrorism must now be eliminated. A reform program, which includes a .multi~; ^racial government, rehabilitation of Mau " (v Mau prisoners, land improvements'and - -housing developments will have to be'im- plemcnted. This will' easy. Many white settlers,'embittered by their, recent '*• -experiences, will oppose reform'while many natives will distrust it.

They point oul.lhal many of Ihese . predictions come from the two political extremes—Ihe left wing Democrats and the right wing lie- publicans. With what passes for a political straight face, Eisenhower Republican leaders in Washingtori are citing case after'case—like that of Secretary of Commerce Sinclair Weeks—in which big executives .have sustained heart attacks .-and resumed their strenuous positions wilhoul a trace of difference. The continuing belief of Rcpub- " lican insiders that Eisenhower will be'a second-term: candidate is not based on any confidential medical' reports that the "'resident's'health is betler lhan the official statements indicate. . Both the assistant to the President, Gov. Sherman Adams 'and Press Secretary James Hagcrty at Denver have given.assurances that .the medical condition bulletins ..have told everything and hidden nothing. . ' BUT THE FACT, that the-President's physicians have indicated he might be able''to. resume some' of his White House duties in January' has set in motion some staff planning. ' Congress convenes in' January. The first presidential responsibility ; the annual Slate of the.Union: message to Congress. The question is,whether Ihe President will be able ; lo deliver it in person. ... One plan that has been given preliminary consideration is for a short, inspirational message which Eisenhower could himself deliver. This could be followed by a series of-special messages giving details on next year's Eisenhower program, sent to Congress by messenger but not read by the President personally. .'•.;• " In any event, the President's ap-. pearance before Congress to deliver his State of the Union message would be symbolic of his return to full command and leadership of his party. This'may not be at the same pace the President has Iried to maintain in the past, with telephone calls from his staff even to the golf course for important decisions. WHAT ABOUT lunch,' he .said. Hold up the verdict a couple of hours and we'd eat free. So we had a fine wangle about that. Some of the jurors wanted to get out of there, even if they had to buy their own meal. • Others agreed with the elderly one; the stale owed us some food. The battle became heated and we finally took a ballol on whether we'd eat on the house. The free loaders won, seven to five, and the bailiff marched us around the corner to a restaurant where we ate ill style. _ ,' Then we tramped back lo court at two p. m., with our verdict in favor of the innocent one. WE FINALLY approached them with a formula. What.if we awarded the brakeman a sum equal to all the money he'd have earned the rest of his :-lifc. .If ,he-hadn't been maimed? The-ladies "did a little .multiplying and the sum was large. They agreed'. Then we men said we'd have to deduct the sum of his wages as a grade crossing'watchman, a job the railroad had offered Ihe brakeman for the rest of his life. The ladies by now weren't looking so grim. Again they agreed. We were about'to award the plaintiff $32,684, when one of Ihe feminine jurors gol lo thinking about the evidence. That man, she said, surely had been careless. The other lady said, yes, he had. Then the ladies got to wondering if maybe Ihey hadn't given him loo much money. So Ihe jury cut the award in half because he- was slupid. History From The Times files TEN YEARS AGO October 19, 1945 •' Floyd L.

In Argentina such thoughts have not been brought up publicly for a long lime. A .: (Aiioctaled Prcjo . . , - ' ™ , Janie.s Mnrloif ^^_—^-^——— Til6 Woi'l(l T WASHINGTON-John David Provoo, once found guilty of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment, has beaten-the rap because the government outsmarted itseH and kept him in custody loo long before trying him. ... A Supreme Court decision'-left him free of the charges. The government reportedly lion dollars trying to convict him. . One government lawyer said this was the most important treason case since Aaron Burr's. Provoo's slory is strange. So is the government's handling of him. He was among those Americans captured by Che Japanese at Corregidor. Right there, the government argued years later, Provoo became a turncoat by posing as a Buddhist priest and offering lo help the Japanese. He was in a Japanese prison camp until the war ended in i945 but then the Army held him a prisoner for seven months while it investigated him. Nevertheless, it honorably discharged him August 17, 1946. HE RE-ENLISTED 18 days later. But in 1949- the Army again held him as a prisoner in the : stockade at Fort Meadc, Md., awaiting courtmartial on a charge of homosexuality. Then on September 1, J949, the Army transferred him to Korl Jay, N. Y., and the next day dishonorably discharged him. .Immediately'the ..Justice Dcparlment had the FBI arrest him on a treason charge; He was indicted on that 1 charge by. a federal grand jury in New York on November 19,1949. But the government'kepi'him prisoner three years before bringing him lo October 1952. ;Some of his American fellow prisoners testified he had been kind. Some said he 1 had been a vicious bully, arid Japanese collaborator. • The.defense-argued that Provoo had used his knowledge of Japanese to ease the lot of fellow.prisoners'"and to this end might have curried, favor with his captors. ' 1 .'Any propaganda help that'hY.mi'ghl have given the Japanese was defended as forced under pain ofipunishm'ent or even death. ;.' program!; of:,merchandising'' arid •••promotion:•••;•.''(;- ••;' '.-,'•'.:..',., '.',' ';:•• -.V, It i; suggested '•'•' ihit : -;-. efforts ' ''be' made to sell''more'/pork 'and lard ». abroad.-,It would Jaik farmers : to •; martet., >'thelr;; hogs >t> • lighter. welghti,'to;reduce' tonnage going ,''.to;the-.siockyards."- 1 ,-,•;•' ';''.: ••-.•;.*" f i ,,' -]•, .This/advice,.
