Thursday Afternoon, October 20, 1955 This Dwindling World , WE'VE HAD PLENTY of broad hints from' the plane makers that the jet age of commercial air travel was coming much sooner than originally believed. But now we can pin lhe arrival dale down' firmly. It is December, 1958. The matter was settled when Pan American World Airways, again and again a pioneer in civil aviation, placed a 270-million-dollar order for 45 huge jet airliners. National Airlines, a carrier with both domestic and international routes, previously had recorded its intention to buy a group of Douglas DC-8 jets. But Pan American claims-lo be the first to sign a definite contract. Obviously this is just the beginning of the parade io jets. All the major lines soon will be placing orders. II is perhaps well lhat this original order was divided between the Douglas DC-8 and Boeing's already well-tested Model 707. Assuming that both craft will prove thoroughly suitable for long-range volume traffic, we must welcome such a division of the business as will help to keep.our major manufacturers operating at healthy levels. COMMERCIAL aviation has gone through so many revolutions in-so short a time that some of us .may be inclined to view this latest prospect a bit too cas-, ually. Bui the telescoping..of lime that jets will bring should riot be lightly, dis-. missed. The globe will shrink, remarkably once more, as it has done so often since the airplane developed ocean range. Flight times in many cases will be virtually cut in half. For example, it.will be but eight and a half hours from Tokyo to Seattle. New York to London will be spanned in six and a quarter hours. Jet- schedules, made feasible by plane s'poeds up lo 575 miles an hour, will allow many more people to travel to many more places. Time is money, and these savings will let vacationers go to. far more distant lands than has usually been possible'up to now. Court And Politics WOULD CHIEF JUSTICE Earl Warren, who has refused to run for president, change his mind if the man who appointed him, President Eisenhower, asked him to do so? Lately this question has been raised in Washington. Such a step on the part of the President is unlikely, just as it is improbable that the Chief Justice would reverse a stand carefully considered and publicly announced. There is a precedent for the situation which might result from such a request. In 19-10 ex- President Herbert Hoover was greatly disturbed over President Roosevelt's candidacy for a third term. Hc wrote to Chief Justice Charles E. Hughes, urging him to resign from the bench in public protest against Roosevelt's unprecedented candidacy. Hughes, a man of cooler temperament, did not reply directly, but rejected the suggestion, Most people would agree now that, no mutter what the political issue, a justice of the Supremo Court should take no stand upon il How to Torture Your Wife A WEBSTER CLASSIC Whitney Boltori X f .-/JND ItiAT KGM/AJDS > OF "ific?

World understanding has a chance to advance materially every time the barriers of distance are lowered'. The diplomat who can make the trip lo and from Europe in little more than half a day may hop a. jet plane even to clear up the. most minor differences with friends abroad. Personal contacts may be greally enhanced. The same goes, in a different way; for all the rest of us. Involved is not just the fun of seeing new places but the rich value of knowing new people and new ways of living. From this can emerge breadlh of view, tolerance, some of the makings of human wisdom. On such a foundation we may hope that a world peace can be built which will be not only lasting but eminently just. Conscience Money HEARKEN TO THE case of the conscientious driver. A grandmotherly woman appeared in the Omaha police traffic bureau the other day and said, "I'm here to pay a traffic fine." The policeman on duly asked to see her ticket. She had none. All she had was a nagging recollection that she had gone through a red light.a-week before. There hadn't been another soul around to sec. But '- there was a witness, all right. "My conscience has been dealing me fits," • said she, "so do your duty." The policeman did. Made out a ticket: For driving • through a red light, So. When the woman left, the policeman said later, "I swear she was walking on a cloud." It's an amusing incident. But it is something more than that. It sets one to dreaming about the kind of society we would have if everyone had a civic conscience as true and active as that woman's. WASHINGTON —The -somewhat sulphurous smoke angrily billowing up over Ihe University of Chicago Low School's recording of .actual jury proceedings in Federal Court at Wichita, Kansas, as part of research into the jury system, has obscured some factors that should be pointed out in the cause, of understanding-and simple justice. This is entirely aside from the wisdom of the research procedure, about which opinion is sharply divided, with sincere and intelligent folks on both sides. It got approval, on one hand, by. three Federal Circuit Court of Appeals judges, as well as the. Federal District Judge in whoso court it was carried out, and by numerous distinguished lawyers all "over the country. It was criticized by Attorney General Brownell and also by Senators Eastland and Jcnncr who directed the jury recording investigation by~ the Senate Internal Security Committee and now are crying for - impeachment of Federal judges in. volvcd. •. School, the research was to be by the interview method. But Paul Kitch,' a Wichita lawyer, who described himself before the Senate committee as "a I,an- don Republican," argued with Mr. Levi and overcame the tatter's reluctance to a 'jury recording which, the Wichita lawyer contended, was the best way to get at the facts needed. He said he could find judges. who would approve and permit such an experiment. 0,NE BASIC factor recognized here, but perhaps not clear to the public at large, is that this episode was exploited as • part of lhe definite • campaign to discredit lhe Ford Foundation — along wilh others—which provided funds for the jury system study. ' It is recognized also that this was an indirect attack on .another pet target of Ihe Easlland-Jcnner duo. the Fund for the Republic which is financed by the Ford. Foundation. The Fund for the Republic director, Robert M. Hutchins, formerly 1 was president of the Uni. versity of Chicago. There you have a motive thai can not be overlooked in Irying to understand what is going on here. Then there are the facts which have 'come oul piecemeal, and which may be summarized briefly. They show lhat as originally planned by Edward H. Levi, Dean of the University of Chicago Law MR. KITCH, WHO heads the 10th Circuit Jury Study Committee, got interested in a jury system study because of a series of newspaper articles holding that clever lawyers could trick and hoodwink juries, lawyers wanted idea and show that the jury system is good, and were happy lo find that the University ot Chicago •was planning a research job. With the approval of Federal District Judge Dclmas Hill, jury proceedings in six civil cases were recorded. Last July 7, .at the 10th Circuit Judicial' Conference at Estes Park, Colo., the recordings were played lor those assembled. Herewith is presented for (lie first time' n statement made then have no intimation or even curiosity or any idea that the recording was being made of their deliberations and that no publicity would be given to it so that juries generally might get the notion that their deliberations were being recorded so that they might have some inhibitions . . . "I would like to say I 'think there are two results that are on the credit side; one is proving, I think, demonstrating that juries generally do a good job. I think it demonstrates that. As a matter of fact, sometimes, if you ascertained the reasons or the line ot reasoning that a jury gees through in reaching its verdict, you wonder what in the world they were thinking about, how they gol off on this He and other - ianseal or t|, at tangent, to combat that But lhe lhjng about jt js , hat when they get through and bring in a verdict in- a vast majority of cases I think the trial judge will say the jury did lhe right thing.

A veteran of 33 years on lhe bench, a distinguished jurist, Judge' Phillips was appoinled a Federal District Judge in New Mexico in 1923 by President Harding and elevated to the Circuit Bench by President Hoover. Here you have a view which is interesl- ing and valuable because it "was presented informally, off lhe cuff, so to speak. "AT FIRST blush I had Some doubls. But after carefully going, over Ibe safeguards lhat were thrown around, the experiment I reached the conclusion that it could not do any harm,-that the jury involved in the case would "I THINK it demonstrates that the jury system is a good system ,.. After 33 years of experience on the bench and 14 at the bar, I am issues of fact is the jury . . . "The other thing is important that Judge Murray suggested, instructing a jury. As my good friend Mr. Rooney indicated, il is a difficult problem. No matter how you couch your language it is difficult to present a charge thai will bo plain and intelligent to the jury. "If we discover in a particular case from one of these recordings that the jury didn't understand the charge, lhat on a critical issue the charge was disleading, we will avoid those mistakes in the future." Thus spoke the judge. (United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) Peler Edson Women Invade South And Eat Oysters WASHINGTON — (NEA) — The National Federation of Republican Women—bless their simple hearts —do think up some of lhe darndest things lo promote the cause of the Grand Old Party.

A dinner was arranged at Antoine's. "And Nelson Rockefeller, special assislant to President Eisenhower, was invited tn talk.

Despite such occasional embarrassing mishaps, a gadget to tune out commercials isn't the TV industry's major needed invention. What is needed is a gadget that will pay no attention to commercials but instead seek out a flash on good programs. Television has mushroomed faster than any other form of free entertainment'ever offered the public, not excepting bundling and trial marriage. It is still afflicted by many forms of bilge, including too many cash-and-carry quiz shows to which the contestants come poor as church mice and leave rich enough to, endow a cathedral although none has done that with his winnings as yet. But anyone who still brags, 'T. never look at television—it's a complete waste of time," only show ignorance. Hc is like a man who refuses to have electric lights in his home because he'has heard electric lights are also .used lo illuminate shooting galleries and gambling dens.

Neither is there an excise tax on the while stuff that the funny men smear on Iheir faces. Nose .putty and closvn white obviously arc tools of the trade and no clown could earn a living without them. So there's the clown after the performance. His face still is slathered with goo, but his Uncle Sam has no sympathy for him now.

FOR THESE and other facts to follow about our cockeyed tax laws, I am indebted to .Maurice J. Paul Jr., vice president of the Federal Excise Tax Council, Inc., who lias been pleading with Congress to simplify the laws before we all go batty. Have you, in that connection, bought any hair tonic lately? The tax on it depends not on what's in the bottle, but what's printed on the label. If the label points out that the gorgeous fluid inside makes you smell pretly or causes your hair to glisten, the bottle is taxable. It is n cosmetic. If the same beautiful liquid comes in a bottle which says il is appear, then our government figures it is a medicine and untax- able. THE LAW regarding shampoos is so tricky lhat the Internal Revenue Service had to get up a list of 100 brands, by name, so its agents could tell wliich were tax-, able and which weren't. They all lathered and they all cleaned the hair and what agent could tell which brands contained less than five per cent saponaceous matter? Thai, in government talk, means soap.

That is one reason for the existence of lawyers. Still it should be possible •for an intelligent layman to look up the local ordinances and get some notion of them. .

Alexander Wiley (R-Wis) WASHINGTON 1 — The roof fell in on peo- nard W. Hall when President Elsenhower suffered a heart attack. Before thai, there was a rosy glow in the sky. Now he can't see what lies ahead. As chairman "of the Republican- National Committee, it's Hall's job to lay the foundations for a Republican victory in 1956. His counterpart. Paul M. Butler, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, has the sarp.2 kind of job for the opposition. it's a backfiring job for both men any time. But Hall's looked easier than Butler's— . before the President fell ill-September 24. THE DEMOCRATS have no sure-shot candidate for their party's nomination in their convention ncxl summer ,evcn though at the IN THIS LAND of the free every moment Vidlai Stevenson may seem to hold 'an man deserves lhe right to nick edge. his own chin whenever he pleases, tax free. It says so in not quite these same words in the Constitution. I must add finally lha! Uncle Sam takes a dim view ol his own mailmen, newspaper reporters, wallers, barbers and others who work mostly on their feel. Foot powder, insofar as the government is concerned, is a cosmetic. Out of every dollar a hard-working man spends for dust to ease his aching dogs, lhe government collects a dime. (United Feature Syndicate. Inc.) And before the convention is over tho scramble among Democrats may bust the party wide open. But Hall, a lifelong politician who at 55 is genial and almost bald, saw nothing like that in store for his party. On the contrary, in early September, he was in a spot Butler and other professional politicians must have envied. To hear him lalk, there were no storms ahead on his political lake . He was confident Eisenhower would run again. ; If Eisenhower did, with his immense popularity, he seemed a year nhead of time to have much better than a 50-50 chance of winning. . And if Eisenhower won, he might again,-.as in 1952, pull the whole parly with him and give the Republicans control of Congress one* more. The whole Republican party fell lhe,way HalJ did. •-' .

Nelson autographed menus for lhe chef, lhe waiters, the bushoys. Everybody had n fine old time. how Oysters Rockefeller got their name, ho looked askance, says Mrs. Kearns.

So Hall, an ex- judge and seven times a congressman; faces a tough year, just as tough as Butler's.. This month, as if scccpting the idea Elsen- hower won't run, Hall was saying the party would win by taking "Ike's philosophy, personality and the record of his administration.' Hut trying lo win on Elsenhower's record may not ho enough since the voters will haye to make their own judgment on lhe Republican candidate,, whoever hc Is. And who ho may be is something Hall doesn't know now. (AtfioclAlrd Preii) ... .' .
