Friday Afternoon November 4, 1955 OUR COUNTRY The union of hearts, the union of hand* and the Fkg of our Union forever.— Morris. s All Speculation IT HAS BEEN observed before that no one can know whether or not the popularity of President Eisenhower and his program is. transferable to any other Republican. But clearly the top GOP leaders are taking a considerably more optimistic view of that problem now than they were immediately after the President was stricken. By the same token, Democrats whose first reaction was that they could triumph handily over anyone the- Republicans might put in Mr. Eisenhower's place now are viewing their 1956 prospects more cautiously. Both sides know, of course, that it is foolish to try to speak with any certainty about an election that is a year off. For one thing, the major party candidates and their personality impact are not known. For. another, events make issues and the events of 1956 cannot now be foreseen. BUT THIS MUCH can be said: The condition of the United States, at home and in its relations abroad, seems to favor the Republicans. In other, words,.because the nation is reaching new heights of of prosperity and appears in less danger of war, the GOP can deal from a situation of strength. They are in the saddle, and presumably the voters will dislodge them only for good cause. As indicated, that ^cause could be a strong Democratic per- ^sonality or unfavorable events either on the domestic scene or beyond our bor- ;ders. If neither of these elements work to -""Democratic advantage, then they will have to try to show somehow that today's peace and prosperity are not well founded and thus not to be trusted. If it'.crimes to that, 'it'may take some real doing. Samuel Lu„•„ J?ell, able political analyst, thinks the Re- : ^^ublicans will win next year if general conditions remain the same and the Democrats don't come up with a marked superiority in candidate quality. HE ARGUES THAT the 1954 general elections turned on economic issues— farm distress and an industrial downturn —but'that the Republicans were stronger on an economic basis then than they had been at any time since 1932. They lost. control of Congress, yet the margin was narrow and many key races were almost a dead heat. Off-year gains for .Lhe "outs" jisually arc heavier. Lubell points out that is of now farm distress is greater than in ,4 954,- but the industrial recession is over | and the economy generally is booming. f From this he argues that basically the Re* publicans are in a considerably stronger -^position—strong enough, indeed, to win. Naturally these are only- speculations, albeit the speculations of a practiced 1 student of elections. At the very least, perhaps, they may serve to .correct notions among party men and -voters that el$c-. • tions are automatic affairs decided by a single factor—like the President's illness. There will be nothing open-and-shut about the 1956 contest. ' Whooping Crane Victory OUR STRATEGIC War Command is a mighty group—for our country's sake •and for the peace and security of the free world let us hope it remains strong. Yet it recently received a setback from 26 whooping cranes—all-the whooping cranes there are left in the world. The Air Force announced its intention to extend the danger zone around a flash bombing range off the southeast coast of Texas. The expanded area might have endangered the whooping cranes who spend their winters in that vicinity. At least groups of bird lovers, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, and the government of Canada, where the cranes spend their summers, thought the birds would be endangered. After all these protests and a respectable waiting period the Air Force beat a dignified retreat. Perhaps the whooping cranes will become extinct, as so many people fear. If they do, however, it will not be because of anything our- Air Force did. There is something nice about being able to report that important and powerful as the Strategic Air Command is it was able to step aside to respect the rights of weak creatures. New Heights •; UNLESS THE chimneys at General rMotors' plants suddenly grow cold, this j mammoth automaker will establish in ; 1955 the first one-billion-dollar net profit ! in America's business history. For the i first three quarters of the year the com- ipany made a net of 913 million dollars, j-already greater than" its previous yearlong total of 834 million achieved in 1950.

What it conveys is the health [and, more importantly, the growth of the 'whole United Stales: In (he pinched days of the 1930's, when we talked of a limited and "maturing" economy, the man who forecast a billion-dollar profit for any company would have been laughed off.

Labor May Hold Balance Of Power In 1956 WASHINGTON — Senator Barry Goldwater of Nevada, chairman of- the Republican Senatorial "Campaign Committee, has stirred up a backwash in important '.party quarters with his virtual acceptance of organized labor, .as the GOP's number one foe in next year's election. •.' In a recent report, which he presented to the Republican .state chairmen at. their campaign "school" here;'' - Nevada Senator depicted ed labor in some sort of a .i'al conspiracy to control the Democratic Party and thus control the-'l956 election. In this coup labor would operate with "a massive use of political slush funds'—on a nationwide scale." It is • understood . that among those who look upon the Goldwater back - of - the - hand treatment of labor as unfortunate and politically unwise and inept is ' Secretary of Labor James "P. Mitchell, who is most directly in touch with organized labor, both with its leaders and the rank and file: He has worked hard as a goodwill ambassador with labor and effectively in some areas, and he commands wide respect. The only explanation of the scope of the Ei'senhower landslide is Hhat the President got-lots of votes from organized labor that previously had gone Democratic almost automatically. IT IS SAID that the Goldwater episode was on the agenda of Secretary Mitchell's visit at Denver last week for conferences both with the President and with Sherman Adams and the White House, staff. The approach to organized labor in the 1956 campaign is a most important consideration. The Secretary is under no illusions, of course, as to the hostile attitude of a large part of union leadership toward the Eisenhower Administration, which he realizes will be activated politically next year. But he believes that among rank and file union members there will again be a demonstration of political independence next year as there was in 1952 when many refused to follow their bosses. HOW MUCH of. the 1952 Eisenhower labor vote can be held for the party in next year's .election wilt'.depend upon developments henceforth, including the Republican party's record-in the forthcoming session of Congress and, after that, the party's platform and the Presidential candidate chosen at the- San Francisco convention "in. August. - "The.President was a special case as Republicans know. Union families-divided :in many instances in the 1952 election, with wives voting for the President while their husbands stayed regular and voted for Adlai Stevenson. . This tendency^ ,was forecast in house-to-house Spoils made by some newspapers before the election which this reporter examined in a cross-country tour in 1952. Likewise, many previously Democratic union members switched to Gen- .eral Eisenhower, deserting their leaders. It is interesting that a recent Gallup Poll showed that Republicans have picked some.-strength among both skilled and unskilled workers since a similar poll in April, 1952, though a majority in each category remains Democrat tic. .." '• • :.' The labor vote could very well- be the balance of power in riext year's election. It is the/ view, therefore, of party strategists, as well as such high level "labor advisors as . Secretary Mitchell-, that the party's attidude should be positive, constructive and inviting, rather than negative, waspish and forbidding. There are here and there close working alliances between CIO and Democrats, .with the most ,note- .worthy example'in Michigan which Senator Goldwater used as his chief exibit. The Michigan coalition is bound to 'be effective in 1956 'as it was in the 1954 Congressional election and in local elections since. But this alliance is exceptional- and not duplicated so successfully elsewhere. AMONG skilled workers, the poll recorded 53 percent Democratic today, a drop'-from 55 percent in April, 1952, with Republicans increasing from 13 percent in 1952 to 25 percent today, and with 22 percent undetermined : today as compared with 32 April, 1952. Among unskilled workers Democrats have 52 percent today as compared with 60 percent in April 1952; Republicans, 20 percent now as contrasted with 12 percent in April, 1952. •"'. ' :. '; SECRETARY Mitchell, ryns a very efficient shop in.his. Labor Department here and,'by continuous, unremitting able to move the Administration, on this . and that project, if slowly. .. Finally, just the other day, he saw action which he had sought ever since he became Secretary of Labor over two years ago. This was a program announced at Denver by Arthur F. Burns, chairman of the President's Council of Eco• nomic Advisors, to improve industrial opportunities and ease employment in the distressed areas of textile and coal mining in Pennsylvania, Kentucky, West Virginia, Ohio, Illinois and Massachusetts. Once again in the coming session of Congress the Secretary will try to get minimum wage coverage extended to four or five, million workers not now included aS'part of a legislative" program-that embraces several other measures. He was successful during state legislative* sessions this year in getting a number of states to increase the amounts of unemployment benefits under the Social Security system. ' (Unitrd Feature Syndicate, Inc.) Peter Edson Russ Haven't Changed, Secret Offers Show WASHINGTON - (NBA) - The new "spirit of Geneva" has been grossly misinterpreted says Paul Hoffman, first head of the Marshall Plan, -which aided so greatly in the postwar recovery of Europe. This new friendliness of the Russians is now receiving its real test in the Big Four Ministers meeting. The Russian smiles there are not important, s n y s Hoffman. What's necessary is to look behind •them and see what the Russians are doing. Their long-range strategy has not changed, he believes. After the "summit" meeting at Geneva, Hoffman went to Europe to study the reaction. He attended Prince Bernhard's off-the-record conference of European statesmen at Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, and the Paris meeting of the European-American Alliance. sian . peace drive is not to be trusted.- :.; . : " Bulganin and Khrushchev are a team, he reports. And they are just as dedicated to world revolution 'as they ever were. What .they're up to is best revealed by the secret deals they have been trying to make all over the world. In Greece, for instance, Russian diplomats have been trying to tell the Greek leaders it is foolish for them to spend so much on defense.' The Greeks have been offered Russian security guarantees against aggression from Romania and Bulgaria to the north. Efforts have been made to woo the Greeks away from their alliances with Turkey ' and the North" Atlantic Treaty Organization of western Europe. > :••• arms savings and new trade can be spent to raise their standard of living. ...'',. In West Germany,, the Russian pitch has been that-the'German postwar recovery-has been .due to savings on armament. Recovery can be accelerated if West' Germany will stay out of NATO and not make alliances with the West. Instead, the Germans are being pressured to make a new partner-' ship with Russia, in which 'they can both get rich manufacturing goods io develop China and India. Similarly, the Russians have offered to buy oil from the Middle East, cotton from Egypt, or whatever commodity any country might have to offer. Whitney Bolton Looking Sideways NEW YORK—A friend who never has tasted alcohol ia his life, except on such exuberant occasions as when he has slopped a "little 'after-shave lotion into his mouth while splashing it onto his face, has just returned from a visit to Spain during. which, as a cool and teetotalirig citizen, he first observed and then became fascinated by the process of making sherry in the only area in the world which has the right to call its wine sherry—the Jerez region of Spain. IN ADDITION. Hoffman had private talks with many of the European government officials he worked with on the Marshall Plan.

But it was good for the rest, of the world. It revealed the Russian hand. For the United Ctates. this situation presents a new danger, says Mr. Hoffman.

It can wreck NATO, if the Western powers aren't alert. Barbs RY HAL COCHRAN An ambulance driver in an eastern city was arrested for going 70 miles an hour. How easily he could have picked up some business on the way. not compare for connoisseurs with the true Jerez product. If you svant the learned name of this hideous little bug, it was the phylloxera. The reason American stocks were brought in for grafting is that the darned little beast has no affect on tough American vines. JEREZ dates back to 1100 B.C.. when it was a Phoenician outpost called Shera. The Greeks called it that, too, 'and the Romans, a .fancy set of fellows, called it Ceret, Serit or Seritium, depending on how much of a'snob the speaker of the moment happened to be. The Moors invaded Spain and forthwith changed it to Scheris, and even they had some fancy- talking fellows among them who insisted on Scherish or Saris, from all of which'playing around'with a basic.sound came in turn to be Xeris and then Xeres and; finally Jerez, all contributing to the word Sherry in its Anglicized form. • THE VINEYARDS grow in three types of soil, chalky, clayey and sandy. The ^color of the grapes and, according to finicky. tasters, the aroma and flavor of sherry vary according to the soil. A real sherryman can even tell you from which acre of what vineyard his wine was produced. . The vines bear in the fourth year of life and from the fifth to the seventh they bear in quantity. One vine produces about seven pounds of grapes per year and is picked . across a period of "weeks, since the grapes are taken when dead ripe' and not- all clusters -ripen at the: same time. ... .- . • _ They lie on special mats iri the •"hot sun for 14 hours, which starts the process which results, in-a prodigious . amount of sugar' from each grape. Between 1894 and 1900 the industry, was prostrated when an American flea-type insect, which got into France oh some American vine cuttings, bit the French vineyards, to pieces and, straying to Spain, virtually destroyed the Jerez vineyards. Curiously, American grafts hastened to Spain first revived and then saved the industry. Thus, all Spanish sherry from Jerez has American cousinship. Nonetheless, American sherry-type wine does FERMENTATION process is violent within 24 hours after the grapes are pressed and-this violent turbulence goes on for a week, after which there is relative calm and for three months the wines reach maturity in slow fermentation. Each pressing of 1500 pounds of grapes results in enough liquid to fill a butt seven-eighths full, leaving one-eighth for fermentation bubbling without loss through bubbling over. The wine, when almost ready, is "fined." This is accomplished by placing the whites of 16 eggs from a specially bred type of chicken into the butt. The eggs are broken into a jar first, whisked with twigs of rosemary, a little of the wine is added, further whisking takes place, and then it is all poured into the butt, where the entire contents become aroused for about 10 days. . . " • A BUTT HOLDS 126 American gallons, and all of this comes out clear and brilliant after the egg routine. There is also some Spanish earth in it. This:special earth' runs to SO percent aluminum silicate and has a trace of lime. You can ascertain a true sherry's age by its professional, not trade name: Fino, about seven years; Amontillado, anything from seven years ,up; Oloroso, from six to seven years up; some sherries may be as old as 80 years. Each winery has museum casks, which are never broached for shipping. They are "house" casks. One winery has a cask containing sherry 200 years old, and another can' authenticate its cask as be• ing 250 years old. Hal Boyle AP Reporter's Notebook NEW YORK—Giving away money can be almost as exciting as winning it.. Jack Barry says he gets all stirred up inside when he dishes out the big dough, even though it comes out of a sponsor's pocket and not his own. • • Barry, master of ceremonies on the new NBC 5100,000 give-away show,, "The Big Surprise," on occasion has found that a question can become, as big an ordeal to him as it is to the contestant. "The tension builds up' in you," he remarked, "because you sometimes get as deiAt ly involved emotionally with the contestant in the 20 minutes you deal with them as you would if you had known them for 20 years. ' However, Barry can console himself with the thought that after all he doesn't have to borrow money to meet his grocery bill. TV emcees aren't paid off in peanuts. AND RIGHT NOW, Barry is riding -high financially as the new king of fine giveaway, a position he seems likely to hold until someone dreams up a program on which the, sponsor will reward the winning contestant with the key to Ft. Knox. . :In addition to acting as little shepherd of the $100,000 prize, Jack also serves as producer and emcee for three other programs—"Life Begins at 80," "Juvenile Jury," and "Winky- Dink and You." - - ; ' Barry is typical of the new type of .television emcee, who is'brightly eager to shower you with cash if you can show your.head holds even the smallest nugget of knowledge. The old-style emcee often had a different a j m _to see that only a certain amount of the sponsor's money was given away. ' Some. times they had it neatly figured out just how often they wanted the jackpot won. And if a particularly bright contestant threatened to upset their. financial schedule they had a number of -sure-fire ways to see he "didn't hit the jackpot - - . . One was the filibuster technique. .The emcee would confuse a contestant by rapid- fire chatter until the gong rang ending his time to answer the question. WORKERS in the Jerez area claim that sherry is non-fa'ttening, prolongs life, is good for the complexion and has other desirable virtues. The connoisseur never tastes it before 11 a. m., and then in a plain, crystal, unornamented glass. The color of the sherry, he says, is its own jewel. The aver- .age citizen of Jerez drinks one bottle of sherry per day and they live, to formidable ages. (McN'ausht Syndicate, Jnc.) Frederick Othman Coal-Oil For Auto Fuel? WASHINGTON—I'm waiting now for those gentlemen in Detroit to build me a sedan that runs, with the aid of one spark plug, on coal oil. The engineers of Chrysler, General Motors and Ford all are working on such projects and I want 'em to hurry. I've just had a ride in a flying machine powered with such simplified engines and I can't wait for more of the same on the .ground. time they were in a plane that made hardly any noise. Neither was there any vibration. We just seemed to float along, eating pancakes as we went. In my day I've had many a'breakfast in "flying machines, but never before hot cakes and- bacon. They were, hot, too. THE SHIP was one of those British Viscounts of Capitol Airlines, which was powered by turbo-prop engines, and 1 rode it to Pittsburgh where I had a job to do. The passengers climbed into this shiny vehicle and while we admired the picture windows, the draperies with the gold threads and the walls of apple green, the captain started the engines. ...'.' There was no roar; no thump, no smoke. He just pushed a button, was all, and the spark plugs sparked as in an oil furnace. That started the kerosene burning and then the propellers began to turn. THE PILOT didn't have to make the engines roar to get 'em warm. He just, stepped gently on the gas and there we were in the air, on the way to Pittsburgh. It was as easy as that and I just sat there'goggle-eyed, listening to a couple of, ladies discuss some private matters in the seat ahead; they didn't seem to realize that this. Future Glass RESEARCH" MEN are currently trying to figure out why no more than one per cent of the strength of glass is being turned to useful account. Men have been working with glass for thousands of years but they know little about this material which is potentially stronger than steel, lighter than aluminum : and as abundant as sand. The glass industry is spending millions of dollars trying to learn more about the composition and nature of its product. The market for glass has expanded to such an extent that it can be handled only by machines which have replaced glass blowers. To design such machines, it is essential to understand the nature of glass.. Tests have been conducted on samples of glass that have up to 900,000 pounds' per square inch tensile strength; This is amazing when it is realized that, the high-' esl measured tensile strength for steel wire is about 450,000 pounds per square, inch. Moreover, glass never has been known to fail in compression.. Glass of this nature, not yet available, could be used as structural material. Produced commercially, it could be put to dozens of uses as substitutes for materials used today...' : Before this can happen, manufacturers must learn how to control its structure. Once they gain this knowledge, glass houses that won't succumb to stones and cities enclosed by glass as protection from the weather's vagaries may be possible. SO I GOT to talking later to one of the stewardesses. She said she worked harder in turbo ships because they flew faster and .she didn't have as much time to get her labors done. On the other hand, she didn't.get so tired. She ascribed 'this to the lack of vibration; she said it almost was like serving a meal at home. The floor didn't buzz. 1 was a little concerned by the big oval window, reaching almost • to the floor at my side. The view of the autumnal leaves was magnificent, but what if that window popped out? Would I go along with it? The beautiful young lady took a dubious look at my girth, which was wider than the window by far, and she said she hadn't lost a passenger yet, or a window either. Fifty-five minutes "after getting on this plane in Washington I was strolling off at Pittsburgh and the way 1 figure, the single spark plug per engine was the cause of my well-being. .... - THERE WAS ALSO the "soft-death" approach.' The emcee would keep cooing, "Remember you have just 30 seconds. You -now have just 15 seconds. Ooooh, (here's the gong. Sorry, your time is up." • ^ And, of course, the emcee always had one final- ace up his sleeve^—the impossible question, one that would stump even a Greek oracle. Barry says the attitude on the'new huge giveaway program is just the opposite. "They've found out that the money is less important than the good will of the audience," he said. . ' "The more money we give away, the happier people will be, the more they'll watch the show and the. more they'll buy the sponsor's product." Barry also pointed out that the method of picking contestants also has changed. "Instead of grabbing anybody who wanders into the studio with an out-of-toWn accent," he said, ''an effort is made to find people \vhb are both deserving and.interesting. . And the questions they are asked are questions they can answer with luck, brains and memory." He didn't explain why anybody who hA luck, brains and memory needed to appeal on a .giveaway program to; make a fortune. . • -"(Associated Press) George Dixon The Washington Scene WASHINGTON —Prof. Ernest Espinpsa, the eminent abecedarian, conducted a seminar on political economy in his ivy cloister back of the $2 show window at Laurel the other autumnal afternoon. Because he must hold himself above any suggestion of partisanship, the 'professor concealed bis "I Like Ike" buttons under a small snow&ank of pari-mutuel"stiffs. : "We will now," he told the class, "take a rundown on W. Averell Harriman, the Governor of New York." ? "He ain't running today," said one of the scholars. "Why?' asked one of the brighter pupils, a popular mongoloid on the campus. "Because." replied the professor, leaning back in his chair of applied psychology, "GOv. Harriman's personal fortune has. increased greatly under the Eisenhower prosperity." "What has that got to do with it?" , The savant pursed his lips. "Because," he said piously, "when 'Averell uses this Ike- prosperity wealth to play politics he is playing with the house's money!" ' A TURBO-PROP engine is a kind of steel tube in which burns a mixture of coal oil and air. The heated air expands and blows against a turbine wheel.' This is on a shaft that turns the propeller.• So there's only one moving part and instead of pounding up and down like a piston, it merely whirls around. • Nearly all the other airlines have ordered American-made planes with similar engines and that brings us to those turbine autos. Turbine - powered trucks have been running successfully on the West Coast for several years. In Great Britain a racing car with a whirligig engine has been' demonstrated; the big complaint against it was the way it whistled. A standard Plymouth automobile equipped with a turbine engine is running around Detroit. Other tests are in progress. PRINCIPAL obstacle seems to be the hungry way these engines gulp fuel. I have every confidence that the engineers who designed 300-horscpower piston engines for 'automobiles will be able to curb the appetites of the turbos. They were working hard on this t at last reports; they said they were experimenting with something called a heat-exchanger to achieve better mileage. They don't have to get 20 miles on a gallon of kerosene to suit me; I'll settle for ten. THE PROFESSOR, who has not been entered in the D. C. international because he cannot go more than eight furlongs, told his students he wished some restrictions could be placed upon the discussion of politics. "I have before me." he said McCarthyian- ly, "a copy of the official publication of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. It is put ( out here in Washington by some of the city's most learned teamsters, and has a title which is so utterly bizarre as to stagger the imagination. Its name is 'Report From Washington.' "In the latest issue, the publication states: " 'We predicted (before the President's Jllness) that Stevenson would fail to get the Democratic nomination. That's doubly certain now unless a strong Vice Presidential candidate, such as Kefauver, saves him. Carmine Desapio is beating the bushes for "favorite son" candidates, figuring a deadlocked convention will favor Gov. Harriman. Plan may backfire, allowing a comparative unknown like Gov. Meyner, of New Jersey, or Gov. Herter, af Massachusetts, to slip in.'" "What'do you cavil at in that?" demanded the self-made college widow. • "Until they know whom is whom in politics," responded the purist, "the teamst should hold their horses. Gov.- Herter Republican." So They Say There would be no strain* at, all (in a re-election campaign for President Eisenhower'. Three or four television and radio programs and (hat would be it. —House Republican Leader Joseph Martin. .PROF.ESPINOSA said he would also like to place curbs en discussion of Princess Margaret. He declared there was no occasion 'for further debate because Her Royal Highness had acted wisely. , , •".:...-.' This produced a violent, reaction on the part of one of the co-eds. She screamed that poor Princess Margaret had been "sacrificed In satisfy nn institution as outmoded as the electoral college." "They'll sacrifice anybody to k«p from shaking the throne." she howled. "They're scared to death the people .will get wise, tc the fact that they're only humans!" "I think." sighed Prof. Espinosa. "I wiJ ask the Air Force to fly me in a special plane away from it all. This part of lite country is becoming too contentious." (King FMturtf, Int.)
