I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue; I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me. — Psalms 3D:1. * * * When we advance a little into life, we find that the tongue of man creates nearly all the mischief of the world. — Paxton Hood. Industry: Take Note In the decade of the 1940's periodic coal strikes were part of the steady diet of crisis news. United Mine Workers' President John L. Lewis was a household name. ' But there hasn't been a strike in the mines since 1950, and Lewis never cracks the headlines any more. In fact, if he did, the younger generation might imagine they were hearing about Jerry Lewis' father. Just a short time ago the UMW signed a new pact with the northern group of coal operators. It calls for a Jan. 1 pay raiie, with another on April 1. There was no fuss and no fanfare. Peace will continue in the mines at least until the end of 1959. Some people figured quiet had descended over the coal industry because Lewis was getting old and losing his zest for battle. But Lewis, questioned recently by U. S. News and World Report, ascribes the welcome change toward peace to "more stable and responsible leadership" than existed in the industry in earlier years. Concentration into larger corporate units, advanced by the steady progress of mechanization, has tended, he says, to eliminate destructive competition. Some have said that pressures from competitive fuels caused the union and the operators in the coal industry to close ranks to save their business; Lewis says no, that this was just as much a factor in the days of frequent strikes as it is now. Edward G. Fox, president of the Bituminous Coal Operators' Association, doesn't quite agree. He thinks oil and gas might bite off another big chunk of the fuel market if there were another extended strike. To him, the economic wastefulness of strikes, both for the union and the industry, was a compelling factor in leading both sides to seek solutions without resort to last-ditch measures. They keep the negotiations out of the public glare these days, and devise "open end" contracts without a fixed terminal date, thus getting rid of the strike deadline bugaboo. These laat two practices might well recommend themselves to other major industries whose labor negotiations still suffer from deadline-itis and an excess of publicity. Labor peace doesn't make news and labor strife does. But not only the miners and the coal industry but all of us are better off because Lewis and the operators have for eight long years chosen the path of quiet good sense. Jungle Jingles We've grown accustomed to novelty songs like "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" scoring at Christmas time. It should occasion no surprise that A littlf ditty called "The Chipmunk Song" has done the trick this year. In one week it bounded from 20th to first place in national popularity. Already it has sold upwards of two million records. No one dares predict where it will end. The author of this one didn't stop with just a cute idea for an animal song. He gave us chipmunk voices, too, by speeding up human voices and then dubbing in the music at regular record speed. This may open up a whole new pathway to American hearts. Next year somebody can slow human voices down to half or quarter speed and we can have "Hark the Hippo Angels Sing." Opinions ol Others GOVERNOR'S TURN TO BE ASHAMED Gov. Orville Freeman made an interesting statement in a speech at Rochester the other night which is indicative of the type of politician that he is. Speaking before the Rochester Constructloh Laborers Local 408, he chlded the Mayo City for its traditionally Republican voting record as he cited expansion of the State Hospital there, construction of new highways leading into the city and other programs undertaken during the last four years. ' "If any place ought to be grateful to the DFL party in Minnesota it is Rochester," Freeman said, "and yet they go on votinp Republican right down the line. They ought to be ashamed of themselves." Well that takes the cake! Is it DFL money — as the Governor apparently would have you believe — that is being used to build new highways or additions to state hospitals? Is it Republican money? Of course not. It is the money supplied by the taxpayers of Rochester and the rest of Minnesota and money from the pockets of users of automobile vehicles. No, Governor, the citizens of Rochester need not be ashamed of themselves for their voting record. But you, definitely, should be ashamed of yourself for making such a statement and playing such a cheap game of politics.—WINONA DAILY NEWS CHRISTMAS ODORS A leading newspaper not long ago carried a full- page advertisement for a new kind of milk chocolate. This was printed in chocolate-colored ink. The ink was treated with chocolate essence for its effect on the nostrils of the subscribers. This made the newspaper plant smell like a candy factory for a while, but that was pleasant and nobody minded, although it did cause the pressmen to buy more chocolate bars than usual. The trouble was that many a reader never got his paper that night, except in the form of shreds on his front porch. This issue turned out to be historic in advertising annals. It contained the first ad ever to appeal directly to dogs. The city pups thought those papers were wrappers for candy and attacked them vigorously, trying to reach the sweets that obviously were inside. The result was littered lawns, unhappy subscribers, and disappointed dogs, and perhaps that's introduction enough for this small essay on smells. The nose is a magnificlent instrument. Odors usually make a lasting impression on the human mind. I'm only hopeful that the smells I've enjoyed lately won't put me in the same thwarted position as those pups, but I've been sniffing Christmas. Almost made me feel young again.—F. C. ORTHMAN, IN ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS CHOOSING THE TREE Our Uncle Sam, always trying to treat the home folks as helpfully as the East Asians, has drawn up some standards that are supposed to make it easy to buy a Christmas tree. They are graded on such qualities as freshness, density of foliage, and balance. With admirable logic, trees rate as premium, No. 1, No. 2, and so on to what's left on Christmas Eve. That makes it seem simple. But does it settle which member of the family shall decide between Scotch pine, with its fine long needles, the traditional Norway spruce, and the fragrant balsam? Does it settle whether it shall fill the space beside the bookcase? Or leave room for the angel on top? Such issues as these call for the exercise of family democracy, rather than Department of Agriculture grading. If father's choice pleases mother he is likely to be too elated with his good fortune to care about Secretary Benson's opinion of his choice.—CHICAGO DAILY NEWS Dear Santa: Please Give Ike Some of Things He Needs AUSTIN (Minn.) HERAlO Monday, tot. 2*, 195S By JAMES MARLOW Alfociated Prew Newi Analyit WASHINGTON (AP) - President Eisenhower'* letter to Santa CJwu — if be were to write to Santa Claus at 68 — could go like toil, since it isn't hard to guess what be has on his mind: Dear Mr. Claus: I bave been living at my present address the past six years. It'l a big white bouse on Pennsylvania Avenue. It has nine chimneys. 80 you should hare no trouble finding me. They're Mean to Him Since I have been here, I've done my best not to say anything mean to anyone. I know I do sound awful mad sometimes — about ev- eiy two years, around election time— *t some of the neighbors. They're the Democrats, a very big family. Every once in a while they pick on me, especially at election time. Then they're real mean to me. And I get mad J>eck. It doesn't last long. Most of the time we get along uicdy, but I'd appreciate it if you oould bring them a big dose of bave some peace and quiet, if you have some to spare. I know you're a very kind man but I just don't know how much influence you have. I sure wish you could use your influence on one person I have in mind. He's a kind of roly-poly fat man with a bald head. He'd look like you if he had some hair and a white beard. To hear him talk, you'd think he was Santa Claus himself.

I think things would get better right away. At least, I hope so. I'd like some money, too, a lot of money. Not for myself. I'm getting along all right. But for the Pot Pourri THIS IS the season when many newspaper! reprint the New York editorial, written many years ago, n answer to the little girl, Vir gtnia, who had asked whether there was a Santa Claus. The editorial writer answered in the affirmative. Frankly, we think the product was far Inferior to one that has now been written by Sydney J Harris, Chicago Daily News col uranlst, who has no peer. Perhaps you will also agree that Har •is* moving reply is nothing short of a masterpiece: "No, Virginia, there is no Santa Claus. "There is no ruddy fat man with merry eyes and tt white beard, who comes down the* chlm ney at night to reward little boy/ and girls for being good. "Because you sees Virginia, el over the world there are millions of little boys and girls, who have seen as good as good can be — but they get no toys, and some times they awake on Christmas morning without enough food to eat. 'There are fathers and mothers Virigina, who have been appoint ed by God to love their children —and they givfe them love, although they cannot always give them pre sents. 'And these mothers and fathers Viriginia, are more wonderful anc magical and mysterious than San ta Claus could ever be. "They bring something infinite iy more precious than dolls and trains to their children — they bring the mark of God's lov down to every boy and girl. "And, sometimes, even these fa thers and mothers are taken a way. But there are others in the world, divinely touched, who look after these children and share with them their meager possessions "Compared with this miracle o care and tenderness, Santa Claus is a pale figure of fantasy. For he, you see, only rewards boys and jirls who have been 'good.' Bu in the eyes of God, and parents all boys and girls are truly goot at heart. 'Presents at Christmas are fun of course, but do you imagine Virginia, that the children with the most presents are the happi est? 'When there is little love in i home, there is little merrlmen —and without merriment, the dol is dust and the train is tin. "All over the world, on Christ mas morning, children will be waking up without a visit from Santa Claus — or with a gift you would hardly look at, an orange an extra slice of bread, a fraye< piece of string. "Yet if there is someone loves them, who frolics with them and heals them, they have a greal er gift than any fat man in , tight red suit could possibly brinj them. "There are fathers who wor for their children, and mother who sing to their children, anc God who gives fathers the stren gth to work when they are weak and mothers the spirit to sing whe they are sad. No, Virginia, ther is no Santa Claus — there does no need to be." THOUGHT for today: Amon the most commonly used pavin materials in this country are cor crete, macadam and good inten tions.

Yet tears was away no folly, for the records show that each year searing flames gut some 4,500 schools and colleges. I came upon such grim figures when, after the Chicago holocaust, this column searched for the cause and cost and scope of industrial fires. Such conflagrations have bu*s* sawed through an average of 13 schools a day for the past seven years — a total of more than 30,000 buildings (o which child* ren come to learn and sometimes stay to burn. Youngsters are not fireproof. Neither are their buildings. One source, whose sadness cost it nothing of its authoritativeness, repotted in a survey that in 60 schools not protected .by ordinary sprinkler systems fire took the lives of 827 pupils and teachers in the past 60 years. 70 Schools Protected Yet in some 70 schools protected by fitted overhead sprinkler systems fires did little more than scorch the furnishings. No lives were lost. The flames, instead, were snuffed out, drowned by the protective gush of water from overhead. • • \ ' Portugal's Mighty Escudo LISBON — When you enter Portugal, you don't ask what its currency, the escudo, is selling for n the black market — an en- irely normal procedure for the hep tourist to follow in most other countries. There Isn't any currency black market in Portugal. The official rate for the Portuguese currency is 28.75 escudos for one dollar. The free market ate is 28.50 to 28.60 escudos for one dollar — meaning in Lisbon, ;he great American dollar actual- y is selling at a small discount in terms of Portuguese money. When you talk high finance with nformed sources here, you don't ask how they're handling their budget, trade, inflation problems —commonplace subjects for the visitor to pursue in most other nations. Backed by Gold Every escudo outstanding is backed by more than 100 per cent in gold in the Portuguese treasury. This country —heart of the third largest colonial empire in the world — has operated with a balanced budget for over a quarter- century. Portugal and her overseas territories sell a lot more to other countries than continental Portugal buys from others. And over the past 10 years, the cost of living here has risen by less than 10 per cent and the Increase last year was under Wt per cent. In short, when you, as an American tourist, hit Portugal — a country only about the size of Connecticut plus Maine — you almost go on the defensive about the U. S. dollar, about the way gold is flowing out of our nation now and the speed at which living costs have been climbing. gets around $9 a week. Almost half the population is illiterate. And yet, in startling contrast, Portugal boasts one of the strongest currencies and most stable financial systems in the world. "We are strong," one of the top financiers in Lisbon repeatedly remarked to me during a lengthy discussion, "our currency is worth today what it was worth in 1949 and our currency will be worth ble. They take great pride In this." "You cannot deny that resentment is growing and hope to silence your opponents »forever by arresting them," I persisted. "We'll take that risk," he answered. "We'll develop economically but only as fast as we can afford it, only as we can finance the advances." Price We Pay Back home where you and I il w , ill .. be w . orth in live, I cannot imagine such wor ship of dollar stability. Since the depression '30s we have made it abundantly clear that if toe choice is between full employment and a strong dollar, we'll take full employment. 1959." And several times he emphasized, "You cannot say the same for your U. S. dollar. We do not distrust our money and gold backing. But we are starting to distrust yours." How has Portugal managed to achieve this remarkable financial stability? The answer, in capsule, is: Her government has made strength of her currency a dominant aim — placed it ahead of economic development of the nation, advancement of the people. When Dr. Antonio de Oliveira Salazar came into power as Finance Minister, Premier — and dictator — after the upheaval of the '20s, eh vowed to bring back- a stable, rich government. He has done so. There are rigid controls to mafce sure her escudo is fully backed by gold. There are controls to make sure her exports top her imports. There are controls to make sure her budget shows n surplus. There are rules making it exceedingly tough for an average businessman who can't put up stacks of collateral to get a loan from a bank on any terms. Building Booms While building is booming alii over and around Lisbon and there i Back home I cannot conceive of such open tolerance of poverty as a way of life for so many, ol such rigid controls. On this, too, We have made our views unmistakable. Still, it's a shock to realize that as one result of the difference between our attitudes, the escndo of tiny Portugal .commands a premium over the dollar of mighty America. •It's no fun at all to recognize that we also are paying a stifl price for our way of life.

Majority Poor The vast majority of Portugal's citizens are appallingly poor and Portugal shares with Spain the dubious distinction of having the lowest standard of living in Western Europe. A (op mechanic here earns $24 a week; a laborer on the road is no missing it: in Portugal as in Spain, living is for the rich and the poor just manage to survive.

Nearly everyone now knows that the chances of cure are better when cancer is found early. Unfortunately, there are still «far too many people who delay in the presence of warning symptoms until the disease has passed the stage when it can be attacked successfully. One reason for this is that some I people seem to be terribly afraid of having the doctor tell them they have cancer and, therefore, postpone the visit, the diagnosis and the treatment until too late. Unexplained bleeding from any of the body openings is a warning symptom. It does not neces- sariJy mean cancer, but it certainly should not be ignored and a diagnosis should not be delayed any longer than necessary. Pain of unknown origin which persists, loss of weight which cannot be explained by diet, any lump, and anemia are other signs which should suggest an immediate and careful examination to be sure that cancer is not present. There is more cancer in the digestive system (stomach and intestines) than in any other one part of the body. The next most common locations for cancer are in the breasts and in the uterus or womb. Any lump in the breast U reason for examination. Any change in the nature of bleeding The recent bitter Chicago grim* nest brings to mind a far less macabre fire In Holy Cross College, Worcester, Mass., In 1957. There in the second floor corridor of Fenwlck Rail, tome sin- dents were smoking, even as some youngsters was In the unfortunate Chicago school. In Fen* wick Hall a cigarette was drop* pcd In a basket of clothing. Sprinklers poured It on. The flames were out and the students back In when the fire fighters arrived In the building. But schools were just a small part of the tinder which went up n '57. Last year over a billion lollars worth of property burned. Hardest hit were industrial plants. Savings Possible Yet just the installation of one sprinkler head would have put out 13 per cent of the flames. And ive sprinklers would have doused 85 per cent of the plant-gutting ires. For these sprinkler systems are things of science. 80 sensitive are they that in some ammunition plants where temperatures must not vary more than a degree, lest a flash fire be unleashed, the light of a struck match uncorks the floods of quenching waters. This literally life-giving science is practiced by a union I h a d never before encountered, the United Automatic Sprinkler Fitters and Apprentices Local Union No. 669. It operates out of the na- ;ional plumbers Assn. headquarters. It has no office of its own — for its jurisdiction is national, including Hawaii and Alaska, too. tts 3,300 members are always on the road. They go where the job is — one day at a midwest atomic power plant and a month later at a naval installation on the Alaskan coast. They are the real old-fashioned journeymen. And they exclude no able-bodied man, with the education, the skill and the will to want to learn the trade. They run a unique apprentice system. Because their people and prospective members live across the land — going from job to job on assignment from Washington — the union gives its apprentice course by correspondence. This is prepared by specialists at Pennsylvania State University. At the moment some 600 men are taking such training. A special union office in Room 408, in the Machinists Building, Washington, D. C., wll take new applications. On the management side of this obscure industry Is the National Automatic Sprinkler and Fire Control Assn. In a season of the year when there 1s little good will on the Industrial front, It is a pleasure to report that both sides speak well of each other in their Held — on which depend the bodies and sou-Is of old and young. It is an industry now faced by a worried public, a disturbed teaching profession and harassed fire chiefs and city officials everywhere who see themselves in crisis. The Chicago fire has fanned a stampede for sprinkler systems. For not only have bodies burned but the economic life of whole communities has been destroyed by fire. Sept. 6, 1957, flames razed a shoe company in Georgetown, Ohio, — a one-factory town. Some 209 of the community's 2,200 citizens were jobless. The economy of a town was gone, in one burst of flames in an unsprinkled plant. So the story of the season is in the words of the leader of the contractors in this field. Raymond J. Casey told me, "Im sure that our industry and our labor organization will come up with all the manpower and engineering needed to meet this crisis."

The suffering which such people undergo is real and their distress is great.
