Mnu Tit**** lac. NEW YORK — There;used to be a grizzled Texan around-town named Stanley Walker, who was not only one of the best City Editors our town ever had, but he was a collector of small sciences and had a code for social status. Among 'the small sciences was his theory that the world balance between white horses - and red- haired women was exactly'even at all times. This, of course, had to do only with natural redheads. ,He claimed that a world survey honestly undertaken would prove that there were always exactly as many white .horses as red-haired women. One canon of his social code scorned ,mink or diamonds as accurate gauges of a woman's acceptability to' society. He held: "Show me a dame's kitchen and I'll give you the one-two-three on her character." Thomas L. Stokes discussions to, the present time. /What emerges is pretty plain. It was the intent of the Founding-Fathers that the nation should select as vice president the second best qualified man in the land.' But under the system:'that has evolved we are lucky if we get the 42nd best. • MEN PICKED' - originally as vice presidents have, rilled over the White House 21 per cent: of the time since George Washington's day. In the 50-odd years of the 20th century, three vice presidents have been elevated to the presidency by the death of the White House occupant. Yet generally the nominees for this office are-chosen in less time than it takes your wife to decide •what kind of icebox she wants. Most of the time the national convention delegates .merely give a halfhearted voice-vote endorsement to a decision taken by the presidential nominee and a few advisers. The presidential choice can rightly insist that his running mate be in harmony with his general views. But some of. the other considerations' that have governed the decision hardly seem fitting yardsticks. Men often have been, put on the balance it geographically, or to lure particular categories of voters. Sometimes they'are chosen to pacify factions within a party; /Their qualifications for duty in the White House, where they might easily end up, seldom get attention. PRESIDENTIAL possibilities fi'nd their personalities and records exposed to. blinding public glare. Vice presidential candidates at. the most are the subject of a'few hours' run-through in a hotel roonx This is no way to fill an office which can through one faltering heartbeat be translated into the presidency. Not just America but all the free world is deeply affected by our leadership'choices. The time is long past due when we sh'buld set about giving to the vice presidential selection process the party and public attention it properly requires. Hereafter any party which picks its vice presidential nominee at the last minute out of a well-concealed hat deserves to be penalized at the polls. The frivolous political factors that govern the selection should be discarded. The public shoulo! insist that each party choose its second best man. 'Second Class' Allies REPORTS FROM .Geneva indicate that' Western diplomats may have erred in their dealings with the representatives of West Germany on the scene. The Bonn officials are complaining of being treated as "second class" allies. Some, thinking back to 1945 when Germany was still our prime enemy, may say: "What do they expect?" But that would miss the point. We have now accepted Bonn into the. Western family. In fact we urged the move. By this action we have accorded the German state equal status with America, Britain and France. Having done this, we cannot then revert to treating the men of Bonn like inferiors whom we are merely tolerating. Chancellor Adenauer, a truly devoted friend of the West and of European unity, has often risked much at home to maintain good tics with us. We will only embarrass him politically if we behave as if his men were our lackeys. His situation is so delicate that carelessness or miscalculation on our part could seriously endanger his government. Choppers In Action . WHIRLYBIRDS, choppers, egg-beaters —in short, helicopters—are being used to perform an increasing array of diverse tasks. They are fine for rescue work, excellent for city-to-airport service and many a big postoffice finds them useful in zipping mail across town. In Texas they've even started to use helicoplcrs for patrolling fence lines, spraying brush, spotting stray cattle, and other ranch chores. The only trouble is that after awhile the cattle don't budge when the whirlybird swoops down; they just go on grazing.' Whereupon the airborne cowhand has to prod them with a long slick. This proves 1 ; once again, the old adage that familiarity breeds contempt. The whole expanding helicopter business proves something else, too — that often ifivcntors are \surprised, years later, 1o sec how their inventions arc being used, GOP Speakers Further Plot Against Labor WASHINGTON—In every campaign there are those bright, bossy people, .clever,with .the language, who sit at their typewriters in th.. : back rooms at headquarters of both major poli tical pa rties and contrive campaign speeches to try out the voters. There is the text for special situations in special areas: There is the trick-device, spsech often with a sensational twist to be hammered at persistently from stumps all over the country. And always there is the "master speech", as it has come to be called in the trade, which takes in everything from farmers to Formosa, from buttonhole makers to the Spirit Jf Geneva. . PERHAPS because of confusion as to who theia leader is to be in the 1956 campaign, the Republicans are out earlier than usual this year on the pea-and-chicken circuit, with Cabinet officers, under secretaries, assistant secretaries and plain Senators occupying stumps all over the country—wherever .anybody" is willing to listen. , They are thus marking time— and profitably they hope—while the party dilemma about a candidate gets straightened out.., Most, intriguing in this'profusion of addresses is one of which the "master" copy seems to have been passed about widely. This is to the effect that organized labor in its new combined CIO-AFL front is plotting to lake over the Democratic party and make it a labor party like the British Labor party and then, that. sword-swallowing • act accomplished, 'to take over the yhole government. ' . This horrifying spectacle is supposed to frighten voters away from the Democratic party, and well it might. But just now Republicans have a particular segment of voters in mind with this charge of Labor - Democratic tie - up. This group is the farmers, now grumbling about lower income and threatening political reprisals against the Republican Administration. REPUBLICAN speakers are seeking to divert the wrath of the farmers toward labor by pointing to wage increases of industrial workers and blaming these for the increased cost of farm machinery. Then ..they identify labor with the Democratic party so that farm an : tagonism will end up against the Democrats as the friends of labor and there is. of course, no doubt that the Democratic party has been friendly to labor and has profited politically thereby. The labor plot to take over the Democratic party was first "discovered" for the purpose of the coming 1956 campaign—it has been , worked before—at the "school" recently conducted here' for the 48 Republican state..chairmen by the' Republican National Committee, y The professor who sprang this special lecture was.Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona who holds 1 the important job of chairman of the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee. Eventually his discourse on this subject leaked out. • • ' OBVIOUSLY also the "master speech" leaked out; for the "plot" was given further, circulation-by Senator George Bender of Ohio, who in his weekly report to his constituents dished up the now routine reference to the British Labor party, to wit: '"No one familiar with the operation of the British Labor party'can , fail to discern the similarity of. the pattern being followed here." - Nor, in truth, can anyone fail to discern the similarity of George Bender to Barry Goldwater, for the Ohio Senator goes on to describe the Democratic party as the "captive" of "one highly organized class-conscious and militant force," meaning labor. Then he describes the Republican party as a national party "trying to attract strength from all segments of the population." We recall that the Senator has a close tie-up with Secretary of .Treasury George Huhphrey, the Cleveland industrialist who helped to finance Bender's campaign for the Senate. NOW, FINALLY, the Labor- Democratic plot has really arrived in the upper ether: for none other than the Senate^Republican leader. Senator William F. Knowland of California has obviously gotten a^ copy^-of the Goldwater "master speech." judging from, an/address at Miami, Florida, running thusly: :•.. "There are some in'the ranks 1 of the new labor-combine who .visual; iz-'taking control of'.the Demo-, cratic party as they have in the; State.-of Michigan and,.making it into-the .American equivalent of -the British Labor party. They hope by capturing a great existing party, to retain the name, the tradition and the ties and loyalties of generations." . And so on. (United Ffaturs Syndicate, Inc.) Larsen-Gilmore Gardeners' Problems Are Much The Same Now WASHINGTON (NEA) - Is your yard dirty brown where lush green grass flourished last summer? Is there hard-packed, bald clay where grass refused to grow in the shade? If so, you're 'in the same boat with Bob Redman, chief White House gardener. In spite of the advice of the best grass, fertilizer and soil experts in the world from the U. S.

RAF brass think it has been bad for the RAF generally, and that he will be eased out of the service in a year or so. spices in it, might be too hot. Hardly. Every last morsel of the curry dishes was scoped up before the reception was half over. "That-curry was delicious," a U. S. diplomat's wife confided to Madame Deressa. "But couldn't it have been a \vee bit hotter?" ONE OF THE strongest drinks quaffed in Washington was also served, by the Ethiopians. It was mead, made from honey. They had cases of the stuff on hand for the crowd—they thought. The heavy drinkers went through the supply as fast as the gourmands leveled the buffet table.

ANOTHER young woman of films, TV and .theatre who will fold aside the doors' of her kitchen to help a charity is Miss Faye Emerson, whose appearance in a Broadway play always costs S5 or more for a ticket at the box office. Miss Emerson's kitchen isn't much different from any other, having the usual articles and ranges and refrigerators, but it boasts one eye-smacking change from the -norm. • Whereas most of us have counter tops of wood, linoleum, plastic or even ceramic tile (the.latter item calculated to keep you buying dishes until kingdom come). Miss Emerson uses black marble slabs. These, too. will shatter a dish if it is dropped no more than an inch, but when you are in Miss Emerson's bracket a. set of shattered dinner ware doesn't mean much probably. RECENTLY, in the. velvety interests of charity, several kitchens were offered to public view, on payment of a $5 fee, which was thrown Into the cash boxes of the charity- involved. • s ; • f ""^' . Among these kitchehs laid open to paid view were those of two young women of theatre who regularly collect more than 55 £or the ticket one needs to .see them in action on the stage.

THE COMBINATION of his recent birthday, and his illness, brought the second largest flood of mail to the White House since Ike has been President. Slightly under 20.000 get-well and congratulatory messages were received in one week.

Mail averaged more than 20,000 letters per week for a couple of weeks during that period. LATEST ambassador of good will: Rep.

Keep living!" A W (Associated Press) WASHINGTON — A tremendous crowd (of motorists, I; must presume)-pressed into the Senate Judiciary Committee's inquiry into how big should General Motors be. Everybody crowded under-the . three mighty crystal chandeliers, except the executives of General Motors, who seemed to have been expected by Sen. .Joseph C. 0'- Mahoney. He invited them to sit at his big green baize table, but none stepped forsvard. The only General Motors man in the room turned out to be a public relations aide. He said he was comfortable •where he was. Sen. O'Mahoney said the television cameras would have to desist for the benefit of the witnesses. "I-don't object to having my picture taken and I don't believe Sen. Wiley, does," :added the gentleman from Wyoming. "No Senator objects to having his picture taken," replied Sen. Alexander. .Wiley. "Well, I do," said Sen. William Langer. "Oh. he objects to everything," said Sen. Wiley. SO' GREAT WAS the crush that the press table soon filled: late arriving correspondents found seats at the Senator's own table — and that's when • the ordeal of Prof. Corwin D.

He mentioned monopolies and oligopolies and he had some words about Japanese concent r ations of wealth, which he had studied firsthand. • SEN. O'MAHONEY read a lengthy opening statement. Sen. Wiley followed with a shorter one in which he said he hoped partisan politics wouldn't enter the investigation of.General Motors. "It doesn' matter," said Sen. Langer, chewing on his unlit, cellophane-wrapped . cigar. "In 50 years not a single man has been put in/ the penitentiary for violating the anti-trust laws. Sen. Wiley has mentioned politics.

WASHINGTON—A Chicago attorney.named Dodd Healy had business in Miami recently. While waiting to board his plane at Chicago Airport he observed an opulent-looking gentleman taking a husbandly farewell of his rather plain, middle-aged wife. The man boarded the same plane as Healy and took the seat beside him. The ship hadn't gained altitude before the fellow began telling Healy all his business. He said he had a wife who was very devoted, but also very jealous, and never let him out of her sight if she could help it. "But," he gloated, "this time I foxed her!" He confided he was being met in Miami by a ravishing blonde and that they were going to Nassau for a big weekend together. All the way down he kept chuckling,over how he had put it over his suspicious wife. When they got off the plane at Miami, the fellow extended his hand, and said he'd be sure to look up Healy in Chicago some time. . "By the way," he asked the lawyer, "I forgot to ask you: What's your line?" "I'm a private eye hired by your wife," replied Healy—and walked off into the crowd. HE WAS A. serious man. he obviously knew his subject, but what came out nf his mouth wasn't exactly hair-raising. So my friend, the correspondent at his side, began to nod. His eyes soon went shut and while he didn't exactly snore (with his chin down there on his chest) he breathed heavily. Heavily enough for the professor to hear. The latter shoved his chair as far away, as he could from the somnolent one and he continued talking earnestly. But he was proceeding under a handicap that is fatal to most public speakers and I congratulate liim for carrying on at all. I gather that he considered the subject of bigness in business a complicated one. He said it needs more study and more facts. He didn't say that General Motors was too big, but along about when the sleeping one was having dreams, Prof. Corwin did say that the big-' ger the corporation, the better the chance'for buck-passing 1 among its officials. He said mere bigness didn't mean efficiency. He also said that our present anti-trust laws are basically sound.
