For the most part this is all to the good, but there Ci'trap or two. We have to be on guard lhat informality does not fall into total gracelessness. These days the casual note dominates in our wearing apparel—sport thirls, slacks, sweaters and skirts,' soft, comfortable, low-heeled shoes, and so on. It's the same around the house. Lots of the new houses feature large, open areas Without partitions. A family can arrange |ts living within the area any way it wish- is,.with activities flowing easily from one part to another. Just as easily, the family pattern expands to take in the outdoors. This is the age of the terrace, the canvas thair and the charcoal brazier. '-••OUR CARS REFLECT the trend. Station wagons, the all-purpose vehicles,' used to be virtually custom-built products, today many manufacturers offer them in several different models, and even their high price isn't discouraging buyers ivho want flexibility in their transportation arrangements. The so-called hardtop convertibles are another sign of the informal approach. Nobody with any sense ivants to interrupt or reverse this trend. Life can be trying enough without placing it in the strait-jacket of stiff formality. The days of the starched collar, the draw- .Ing room nobody sat in, and the car that looked like a hearse are gone forever. But "informality" as a term can be used lo cloak a lot of habits and attitudes that come pretty close to being crude. The line between acceptable informality and downright sloppiness is not always well maintained these days in the attire some of us wear. One can be casual without forgetting that clothes should be neat, clean, »nd at least bearable to the eye. RISING COSTS HAVE, of course, squeezed soine of the,,space.,out,of the,,, postwar house. In countless 'homes there's too little of it for growing families whose possessions crowd every untenanted square inch. But we still have to fight the battle lo keep our places neat and orderly. A home without some semblance of order, outside and in, is a small patch of chaos in a teeming world where the decencies can only begin at the family level. It's wonderful to live casually. It's also wonderful to live graciously, for that reflects the best in human beings. The two things aren't antagonistic but can go together very well. Informality used as a license for disorder may one day produce sharp reactions toward the rigid formalities of old. Informality wisely governed may lead us to the most rewarding living we have ever known. Tension Tonight THE OTHER DAY someone suggested that the theme song for those of us caught up in the hectic rush of modern life ought to be "Tension Tonight," sung to the tune of guess which old favorite. Like many another silly suggestion, this one had a grain of sense in it. Many of us are in a state of tension much of the time. We hurry too much and worry too much and in general do ourselves more harm than good. Even a layman can understand lhat. But a layman likes to have some professional support for such a conclusion. Support is not hard to find. A group of European neurologists recently assembled in convention gave the disease • a name: Vegetative disharmony. The things that cause this condition, said the neurologists, are excessive speed, a mania for production and consumplion, anxiety, harassment by lights and annoyance by noise. In shorl, they said, civilized man in the 20th century is a victim of loo-much- ness. Or, as George Weller of the Chicago Daily News Foreign Service put it in his report on the convention, "We human beings must slow down—fast." Those who act on this advice will soon be able to dispense with the theme song mentioned above. Which ought to be inducement enough. Interdependent Living NOT ONLY FARMERS are disturbed at the falling off in their income. Businessmen in small towns of the Midwest farm belt find that their customers are no longer able to buy on their former scale, and are insisting that the administration do something about it. This recalls the discovery businessmen made a generation ago when they found that Henry Ford was right. One reason given for his paying workers the then almost unheard of rate of $5 a day was that if workers had money lo spare after buying the essentials, they would be the automobile manufacturers' best customers. And so it proved. Humanitarian motives ilso played a part in Ford's higher wage scale. But it Is as true as ever lhat the prosperity of one part of society contributes lo the improved status of the rest.

BY A REAL COWBOY Thomas L. Stokes South Wants To Control Party, Reporter Says POINT CLEAR, Ala. — In their closing session here, Southern governors were discussing' the amazing industrial development of the South. This literally miraculous progress had been summarized for them in a glittering array of statistics embodied in a comprehensive report covering the South's abundant natural resources and new and nourishing industries. During the discussions there were frequent expressions of resentment at charges from the East and North, particularly New England, that the South is luring plants from those areas by special concessions of all sorts that they claim are unfair. Entering a broad denial 'ot the allegations, Governor Orvel Forbus ot Arkansas said only one percent of the migration southward involved the practices complained about. THEN GOVERNOR "Big Jim" Folsom of Alabama rose lo his full, six foot-eight to give a reverse twist on the subject. Explaining lhat his state had just recently adopted .the idea of other Southern slates and is creating a commission on industrial -develop- • ment, he said an important'.part , of .would be to.helpTAlav.. h'ama industries thai.want to eslab- • Ilsh branches in other slates, North, East, West. "We'll help our industries' to establish branches in New England, Minnesota, Pennsylvania — anywhere they want to go," he said. "We want our folks to expand their business." Then lie added, with a wise grin: "But we'll welcome any industry which wants to come to Alabama, and will help them locate here.. "As far as I'm 1 concerned, the Civil;.— and we want those Yankee dollars." THE ALABAMA governor, a salty and earthy fellow whose under- slanding of the' realities has got him twice elected chief executive of this state, thus summed up, as he can in liis folksy fashion, a familiar paradox that was so clearly demonstrated once again by Southern Democratic governors as they thought out loud about their economic and political 'problems, both in and outside of their.formal sessions here at the annual Southern Governors Conference. Industrially the South has joined the union, making itself an integral part of the national life with a . flow back arid forth of business that benefits it-and other sections of the country. But politically, the . Civil War is still on, and within the Democratic party, between the Confederates and Yankee wings. This is exemplified in the constant fretful. talk you hear wher- • ever Southern politicians gather — as was"the case here - 7 - lhat the South is...V]gnpred",jin : .the,formulation of party policy, that it does not have the voice is should there or in the choice of Presidential candidates. 'What is really meant, you discover as you listen, is that the'.' South is not permitted to run the whole party. That seems to be: what the politicians here consider a god-given right — lo run the party — and they insist upon it. . " ONE ALSO gets a sense of unreality which probably goes back in its. inspiration to the' pre-Civil ' War era when the "South was dominant in the national government. That was 1 , of course, a long, long time ago. Only "the South" still exists as a dislinct political entity. You never hear any other section insisting upon dominating a great political parly. Nothing exists elsewhere in this respect — not "the East" or "the Middlewest" or "the West." Nor do you find politicians in those geographical divisions constantly planning, as they do in the Soulh and as the governors did again here, to form a cohesive political bloc to regain for "the South" what is called its "proper share" in direction of the Demo- era lie parly., NEW YORK—Auluinti comes'to New .York swirling bthind the. thudding rains which have: sod-' dcncd the earth; winds in sweeping curls come from the northwest and dry the nearest puddles. , You wake up one morning in the country, aware that fall is on hand. The billcr smell of burning wood in hcarlhs cold since early summer, the faint hiss of steam rising in long sleeping radiators. The soft crack of panelled walls stretching after the dryness of summer. Somewhere, a block or so away,you hear the.whine of a chain-saw tailing through stout limbs which fell in the near-hurricane of a few days ago. You hear the chatter of children starting' off to school, wandering up the block speaking in tones which imply that everyone is deaf. No'child speaks softly. They all yell, their coats flapping around them and their fingers cool in the morniijg air. A HAZE OF EARLY fog combined with wood-smoke lays a veil.. over the. estuary and a .flock of. gulls,: speeding toward water after rifling the town's waste cans, makes a humming ^sound as it flashes by the'huge window. Out in the harbor, you see men three inches tall bent over boat decks, hammering down canvas to the peeled decks, coiling lines; drawing sails' up into the sun and the wind for drying'before being rolled away for winter. You watch a yncht yard service boat haul up a mooring and drop it, muddy and wet, on the sturdy deck, You lie there, after four hour's sleep, half awake and half asleep and acutely aware. All odors and sounds seem to have definition beyond the usual. The chain-saw's whine has become a restless chal- ter as its teeth'bite into a limb thicker than most. The hammers beating on boat decks sound like drums, making an odd, insistent rhythm. s THE THICK, foam rubber pillows hold you half .erect. and through the fourteen stretched feet of glass which makes a wall lo Ihe sea you walch as a fisherman sets out down the.harbor toward the Sound, his coat collar up to his ears and one hand jammed into a pocket. • Downstairs, in the house, you hear a soft, metallic clinR, followed- by a sound of metal turning in threads. The fuel oil man is attaching his hose W-the filler pipe and preparing to pour 550 gallons of oil into the tank. You are too contented and sleepy to calculate the cost of lhat much oil, but you push a buzzer Button and the house inter-phone rings back and you tell someone to give him a cigar from the box on top of Ihe TV sel. A. cigar is a modest insurance that,when this.gallonage is almost gone he will automatically come back and refill. By then it may be late December and icy. YOU HEAR a sudden ratlle of vegetation and, looking out, watch a gust of wind sweep leaves from llie dogwoods down by the brink. The dogwoods are early to Icse Iheir leaves, and early to gain them back in the spring. Just in front of them the long bed of colorful dahlias lies, the flowers nodding in the winds like a group, of people gathered in • some tremendous conversation. You -glance down closer and see the bright green patches qf fall- sown grass, new, tender, and vulnerable. As'you watch, two.square-shoul-- dered boxer dogs from down the block trample the hew grass down and move on, unaware of the fragile blades they have crushed. But even as you watch the blades begin lo spring erect again, and the patches look good against the older, more sedate and less vividly green grass. YOU GET UP, at last, open,the • bedroom. door. and pick up the morning newspapers. Three of them. You get 'back in bed and put your glasses on and look at Pages One. One paper's lead story causes you to read Ihe continuation on Page Six. You get not a word beyond thai. You fall asleep again, surrounded by the sounds of autumn; of people, birds, animals, and trees preparing themselves for autumn and the succeeding winter. The sounds have a lulling chorus. You are deep asleep again. (McNatuhl Syndicate, Inc.) Frederick Othman The Report Of A Hungry Man IT .ALL SEEMS somewhat •strange, too, when you know that the South, representing a minorily of the people of Ihe country and a minority of the Democratic Party, is dominant in Congress, occupying virtually all of the key posts of power, including;that of Speaker, of. the House and that of party -leader! in' the Senate; and''Shaping legislative policy : in Congress. .V ;.: One way to change" the inverted and Isolated character of Ihe. South politically would .be by a strong two-party system with a healthy Republican party. But, while this seemed to be getting nearer after the Eisenhower invasion of 1952, it seems to be slowing up again. , (United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) Peter Edson Nixon On Sideline; Ike Expected Back WASHINGTON — (NEA) — The Eisenhower Cabinet lias now swept under the lable any consideralion of whether Ihe convalescing President can delegate his powers lo Vice President Richard M. Nixon. It appears the Republicans are counting on President Eisenhower's complete recovery and full resumption of his duties. The 'decision that it would not be necessary lo give an opinion on this delegation-of powers question was made by Deputy Attorney General William P. Rogers and Department of Justice Legal Counsel .1. Lee Rankin. Attorney General Herbert Brownell Jr., was on his way back from vacation in Spain at the time. Since his return he has not overruled it. '•: There is not even a Cabinet plan to sponsor legislation in the nexl Congress, clarifying whal Article II, Section Five of the Constitution means. This covers Ihe "inability to discharge the powers and duties." CONGRESS has clear authority to deal with this matter. But it has never defined what conslilules a President's inability to act. The question has been a subject of debate since the assassination of President Garfield in 1881. It was discussed for a short time after President McKinley was shot in IDOL When President Woodrow Wilson had a stroke in 1919, Vice President Thomas R. Marshall said Ihe President had asked him to call a Cabinet meeting. Marshall disclosed lhal he had asked the sheriff of his home coun- ti in Indiana whether he—Marshall—should assume the dulies of Wilson. The sheriff replied that in his opinion, Marshall was actually President. But Marshall never assumed those powers. The matter was fought over again at the end of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's third term, when he -was obviously just as sick a man as President .Eisenhower, or even sicker. minislrative actions, Cabinet officers and agency heads cannot act. The Attorney General, for instance, can begin almost any kind of a' government lawsuit. But he can't grant a pardon. TWO -PRINCIPAL mailers are .. involved. One is the president's authority to sign executive orders, commissions and "official papers. They number as .-.many as 200 a day. The -second unclear area involves delegation of powers. Cabinet officers and other agency heads are now believed lo have authority to handle most of. the administrative matters which they have customarily bucked-to the President in the past. 1 Contrbversial questions like farm policy, inter-dcpartmenlal squabbles of' foreign affairs will be laken up al Cabinet or Nalional Security Council meetings. In perhaps 10 per .cent of the ad- Hislory From The Times Files THE SECRETARY of Stale has perhaps less final authority than any Cabinet officer. The making of foreign policy is reserved to Ihe President by the Constilution. It has never been determined whether the President could delegate Ihis power to the Vice President or the Secretary of State by simple notes saying, for instance: Dear Dick (or Foster) I am unable to act in the matter of recognizing the new government of Argentina. Will you please handle? ' Ex-President Harry Truman is of Ihe opinion that the President cannot delegate these powers. Eventually, it will require a Supreme Court lest In Ihe mean- lime, Hie Cabinet will attempt 'to carry out the Eisenhower policies, with nothing more than occasional guidance such as Secrelary of the Treasury George M.

' WASHINGTON — This being a nippy morning, wilh a tinge ot red on the maple trees and a hint of anti-freeze in the air, I.had my first plate this season of genuine Philadelphia scrapple. Made a new man of me. . For the benefit of you unfortun- :ate ones who never heard of scrap..pie, I must report that it is a -..'• salubrious combination of corn 'meal, meat, spices, and^ oilier- mysterious components, which are mixed wilh a little water and allowed lo congeal in' a slab, like mush. You fry slices of this and drench the result in maple'syrup and you feel like you'll never be hungny again. While doffing my h:. ( to the old-time Philadelhpians who invented this, I got to thinking that they're responsible for numerous good things to eal. THESE MANY years Ihey have specialized in superb ice cream. One of their druggists concocled the world's first ice cream soda,, vanilla flavor. And from Philadelphia comes pepper pot soup, which makes tripe a delectable item indeed. Here, between the North and the South, is an elegant place for an eating man lo be. Good Ihings from bolh directions trickle in and I'm not talking about ye olde peanut butter soupe, which is a specialty of too many tea rooms hereabouts. Righl up Ihere wilh scrapple -these days on my bill-of-fare are oysters, which now are available on Ihe half shell in a dozen different varieties. The experts insist a Lynnhaven lastes entirely different from a Tom's Cove, which doesn't even resemble a Chinco- league. THEY ALL TASTE good to me and the only one I can't manage readily is the Imperial. This one is three inches across, easily, and plump and my mouth isn't big enough to take it in one gulp! I have seen people tackle -these mammoth oysters with knife and fork, but I'm not brave enough for that. There has been considerable written lately about oysters Rockefeller, which were created in New Orleans and which I consider an insult lo oysters. This dish, as you know, consists of oysters with spinach on top, baked in the half shell. That's an easy method to eat spinach, I will admit, hut it is a sorry way lo. treat an oyster. A far betlcr dish in my opinion is oysters casino, in which you put a small piece of bacon on each bubbling oyster. This makes a kind of concerto of two luscious flavors. We've got fried oyslers in these parls and oyster stews and for you who live in non-oyster pre" cincts, 1° can recommend fresh frozen oyster soup. This comes in cans and Ihe ealing of it is a kind of gambling game; some of these are full of oyslers and some contain only two small ones.

But the questions children ask arc much more searching than those asked on.television programs. . • The answer to even a' $100,000 queslion on television is, after all, a simple mailer of informalion lhat can be found by looking in a reference book. The questions asked by children would ruin' any TV quiz show, stump any panel of experts, because they often can't be answered simply and easily. A child's queries reflect the collision of a small mind wilh all the wonder that liei about it. . Any child can ask a queslion that would take a 70-year-old philisopher weeks to explain —or even leave him dumbfounded. • : As children get older and shyer, they cease lo ask these life-prodding questions. They pull down the curtain on their doubts and thoughts, and we miss looking through the little open windows by which we fell we knew them. HELEN AND GEORGE are wise parents. As each of their children passed through the question-asking stage, they jotted down the child's questions. Later in life, 'at Ihe right time, each of Ihe girls will be given a record of what she Wanted to know then. Here arc some typical questions asked in recent weeks by Leila Jim: "How can a puddle go away?" "Did the weeping willows weep that pond under them?" "How can Santa hear what you want for Christinas?" "Do you love me even when I'm bad?" "Could you walk on water?" "What is under wallpaper?" "Do you gel lo be what you want lo be when you grow up?" "Do your clothes • slill fit you when you get bigger?" "Which do you like best—and you can't say both—cars or houses?" "When daddy was a little boy did he want lo be a daddy?"

In modern times, a kingdonv-or a republic-could be lost for want of a metal called manganese. The reason for Ihis is lhat manganese hardens and loughens slecl. It is essential in the process'of making sleel, which is bone and sinew of a modern war machine. An adequate supply is obviously of great importance in an era of rather nervous peace. A Senate Interior subcommittee which has been 'studying Ihe matter reports that the United Stales supply of manganese is not adequate, and lhat we had betler get busy stockpiling the metal. Stockpiling is necessary because nt> large reserves of high- grade manganese are known in (his .country. We import about two million tons annually. In war•time that would be extremely difficult. Stockpiling,. though, is not enough, says the subcommittee. The situation calls for a vigorous,program to develope ways of bene- flciating, or' up-grading, the low- grade manganese ore which is plentiful in the United States. It wants the government to help finance such' a program. The subcommittee's recommen- 1 , ' Nations are eminently sensible, Prcpardness Is a virtue.

Reinhold. past president of Ihe American Hoad Builders Association, has been trying to explain some of the facts of old-worldly life to his wife, Mrs. Claire Dcwey Reinhold. Mrs. Reinhold, who has been cramming herself with old Roman culture while her husband conferred with top highway officials of 54 countries, went to the transportation desk in her hotel the other day to check on flight reservations home. She returned to the Reinhold suite aghasl. "IT'S THE MOST outrageous thing I ever heard in my life!" she panted. "They wouldn't tolerate it in Pittsburgh!" "Wouldn't tolerate what?" asked Mr. Reinhold, who has a more extensive knowledge of their home community than his helpmate. "There was a sheikh—or a sultan—or a hey—anyway he wore a flowing white robe and a turban—and he was making reservations to New York, too!" "What's so upsctling about that?' demanded Mr. Reinhold. "All kinds of people go to New York nowadays." "Yes, 1 gibbered Mrs. Reinhold. "but he was making reservations for three. In a voice that could be heard all over the lobby he said he wanted reservations for himself, his wife, nhd his—1 never heard such a thing in all my born days!—his concubine!"
