Carrol Naish is an: actor for your buttons. ; What most of the world does not know is that he is also IrishV Having belted around such nationalities in films as purring French, explosive Italian, glottal.German and shoulder-shrugging Mexican, Naish is looked upon as anything but what he is, and most citizens anywhere if confronted with a cool demand for a description'of him . .would say: "Well, you see, this '..foreign actor . . ." hattan can't hope to work in a theatre in 'Paris if he is slathered with a brogue as thick as a hurley stick. So he learned precise French, drawing room English, Berliner German and sidewalk Egyptian, among other acquisitions, and found he could get a'job anywhere. Not ..big, but a job/ ', ... ..;.

YEARS PAST' The 'Evening Times has pointed out. that Thanksgiving Day as we know it, is unique among all'the holidays celebrated throughout" "the; world.' But this newspaper has always stressed that this does not indicate that. the-people of other .countries are less thankful than we for the blessings they have .enjoyed. The difference is that they return thanks in different ways and ;at different times from,us. But as a National holiday, -Thanksgiving Day' cbhtinuesto: be strictly American, ;;althpugh • other, countries have been impressed itiy it .as. they have come into, contact with; Ainefr v - icans and have observed : them as they: ; celebrated this greatf east.' . SO TODAY, LET US keep in mind that this is more,than a day on which we feel free .to 'satisfy our appetites. with" a. special dinner. It is a day of religious significance, a day on which it is ; our duty to render,thanks for the ) ..countles.S i benefits we eipjoy. ;A\nd in rip country of the world do-the people: h'aye"greater cause for thanks than here in our own United States.".This country is rich and comfortable and is constantly moving in the direction of ever greater development of all the things., that'go to make-life worth while. .Although it as true that we .have those among us who are poor and needy, and we all. have troubles-which weigh upon us, still our lot is so much better, than that of those who live in other parts oi the world that it is not difficult to realize how fortunate we are. Meai-And-Poidtoes WE HEAR A LOT about the superiority of our .standard of living, but not too often do we get a really clear, graphic illustration of how we measure against Europeans and others. The American Iron and Steel Institute has come up with some comparisons that picture the differences sharply. The unit of comparison is a market basket containing one pound each of bacon, beef, sugar, potatoes, butter and. white bread, a dozen eggs and one quart: of milk. To purchase this basket;" an American steel worker must work just one hour and 38 minutes. In Great Britain, the same kind of worker must / toil four hours and 45 minutes to earn the contents of the basket. A Swedish steel worker must put -in just over' a five hours. The biggest shock, quite revealing of its industrial state, comes from France. There a steel worker must work x hine hours and 51 minutes to earn the money for food an American can get in .a bit' more than an hour and a half. So, it seems, all this talk about a better^ standard of living is neither inaccurate nor unfairly boastful. The specific facts are more striking than the handsome general-" izalions we usually hear.

AN ACCREDITED fellow iff" the marching Order of Irish Admirers, this reporter sat down in a Broad-. way restaurant the other rainy afternoon and did a job of exhuming the past of this Irish boyo who once ran" away from Park Avenue. Not many people ever run away from Park 'Avenue under any circumstance, 'unless it,is that they have lost their, jobs with an advertising agency and = no longer can pay the rent conveniently. Naish was born on Park Avenue, another rarity in our'woolly world. Not many people are..;born on Park Avenue, they just.five there.;the ones born there are -usually born in "a taxi bound for the hospital but caught in a traffic jam'. ' .

In time he hustled his way to California where he was conned into taking a flyer at the movies.

And to him the most important word in any dictionary right now is the word "color." > ... At 37, Bob, son of Brig.vGen. David Sarnoff, head of the RCA communications empire., has risen to the post of executive vice president of.the National Broadcasting Co. • The job wasn't handed to him on a platter. He worked his'way up in the .company, and 'had to take "his bumps along the way.

THERE WAS another potential source of discord that Republicans •sensed and were prepared to exploit; but it seems to have been .removed at the Democratic rally here. This was the possibility that ex-President Truman might involve himself personally in the rivalry among actual or prospective candidates and so engender party divisions.

'Theicandidates. know. that.. It mayv'be'Said that it has special point forfAdlai Stevenson, whom some within >the, because of his now preferred, position, would try to get to conform to a more conservative pattern which is what is generally understood by current terminology such ""as.''moderate" or "middle-of-the-road:"-'--;'''. President Truman has'.:grqwn suspicious of the emphasis .on -"rno-; deration" for the party and its candidate by a powerful Southern IN HIS. SPEECH, the latter spoke .of "moderation," saying, "I agree that moderation is the spirit of the times," adding, "but we best -take care lest we confuse moderation with mediocrity, or settle for half answers Id hard problems." Senator Kefauver, who spoke im' mediately after former President Truman, omitte'd a reference to moderation that was in his prepared text issued in advance. What the text said was: "There is a cry for moderation in the air. I am in accord with it. But I also know, as you know, that moderation does not. mean sitting becalmed on dead center.-"-.Instead, when he spoke the Senator said that he agreed with what Mr. Truman had' said about the .Democratic party being a.liberal, progressive party.

And-it didn't come easy. He had to look:up people who were like what he was hired to play. Or, at least,' he. thought it'would be wisdom to-do so. He found his Magyar drunk as a fiddler's pretty in a saloon and over in Williamsburg (Brooklyn, not Virginia) he found exactly the lawyer. Or five of them and distilled all five down into one. "We've been i actors for 2,000 years," he said. "The fimily on both sides have been lawyers,, judges, and prosecutors in Ireland for exactly that long. Such, people are basically-actors or they .don't succeed. So call it law-actors. A working actor had to pop up from all those genes sometime. The toss fell to me." . . (McNaught Syndicate, Inc.) YOUNG SARNOFF doesn't regard color television as a gamble. He looks on video's rainbow future as a sure investment, an evitable step that has to be taken. "The mass production of color sets will put them within reach of the 'mass buying public," he said, adding: "A 21-inch color set today is relatively no more expensive than a' 10-inch black and white set was less than 10 years ago. "There are" already between 30,000 and 50,000 color sets in use, and one firm alone is now turning them out at the rate of 1,000 a week." ; • Color is only one of the. headaches the young executive has to deal with. Across his busy desk pour the problems of hundreds of radio and TV network stations, the queries of sponsors, the complaints of high-priced stars. ' "There are more phone- calls in this business than in any other in the world," said Sarnoff, who sometimes feels it might be pleasant to spend a day all alone in a dark closet. .- '"....--• • Frederick Othman Jet Auto Erom Missouri GOVERNOR Harriman had rio reference to moderation:in his din-, rie'r speech.

The 'main jet, a whopper of : 'the-resonance type, burns gasoline. The upper twin jets of the constant-thrust type use kerosene. SARNOFF BELIEVES that in another decade television will be even more important than it is now. "It will have become the actual "fountainhead of most creative effort in America," he predicted. "Operas are already coming out of it. Movies and plays will spring from it, too. It will create the stars of tomorrow as it already is creating new writers. . , : "In 'another 10 years live international TV will become commonplace. This should cut down much misunderstanding between nations, as people really see first hand how the peoples of other lands live." Television mushroomed in a few short years- into a billion-dollars-a-year industry. It •still is growing so rapidly its executives find difficulty keeping up with it. "Programs have to be set up six to eight months ahead," said Sarnoff, "and one of the biggest problems is how to get rid of'your daily tasks, so you can find.time to sit down and plan what must be done next." How does a television executive relax from the endless high prsesure he is under, pressure he sometimes wonders how he can take and still survive. "Well, I keep tropical goldfish," said Sarnoff, smiling. "They're fascinating. At the end of the day I like to go home and watch them. They seem so free." (Associated Press) Peter Edson Flood-Proofing Plan Faces Difficulties WASHINGTON _(NEA)— Gov-. erriment.and private disaster relief agencies have apparently been able to do little in relocating on high ground the families or business establishments washed out by this year's northeastern states hurricanes and floods. This startling fact is revealed by reports of Small Business Administration, Farmers Home Administration . and the National Red CrossT.Thesc reports cover 37 million dollars' worth of aid they administered up to Nov. 10. This aid covers only 8 per cent of Department of Commerce's estimated 457 million dollars damage from Hurricane Dianne alone. This estimate included seven million dollars farm damage, 67 million dollars housing damage and 217 million dollars commercial and industrial .damage. Highway,-street and bridge damage was estimated at. 81 million •dollars, pul)!i.c and private utility damage nt : 79 million dollars-and miscellaneous damage six million -dollars additional. But none of the studies has thus far paid much attention to the simple fact that the best form of flood insurance is to refrain from building on- locations that may be flooded. ' -. ' American Red Cross officials in Washington explain that in cases where 'floods have washed right through; a property and destroyed the land, they help families relocate on high ground. Or if a city; or county government condemns sites as unsafe for future" occupancy, Red Cross aids relocation! .If a site remains intact, however, Red Cross leaves it up to the people of each location whether they will rebuild or not.

WHAT BRINGS up this subject now is a little piece I did a couple of weeks back, urging those engineers in /Detroit to get going on turbine; engines.. for four.-door sedans. Shelburne, a leading automobile serviceman in Mark Twain's home town, took a dim view of this. , He said did I ever stop to think that most inventions tiad their'be- ginnings in small towns. "Some isolated inventors solve, most of the riddles and the elusive x-'s," he added. "They spend years of toil, sweat and tears and : all their meager incomes in developing the basic principles." Then, the proprietor of the speediest Chevvie of all continued, .some -.big outfit buys up 1 the idea and makes a go of it. Middle East Tension EVERY STEP taken to prevent an outbreak of full scale war between Egypt, and Israel, 'it is highly unlikely that the fighting could be confined to those two countries and it is quite possible that the whole Near East would be involved in the bloodshed. A great deal of responsibility for the present crisis must rest with Soviet.Russia. The Egyptians are receiving arms from the Soviet bloc and it is this that seems to have emboldened the Egyptians into forcing a shooting showdown. At Geneva and in statements from the Kremlin the Soviet Union has been proclaiming its new approach—its desire to help ease tensions and establish peace. - 'Yet- the old •Communist ' technique of arousing trouble wherever possible has not been abandoned. If Molotov and his colleagues want to prove,the sincerity of their peaceful words this would be an excellent time to do it. It is ridiculous to believe that Communist Czechoslovakia - entered into an agreement to send arms to Egypt without the consent of Moscow. A word from the Kremlin and Czechoslovakia would stop. Will the Russians say that word arid prevent a bloody War If they, don't all their talk of peace will have a hollow ring. CONGRESSIONAL and executive departments of the federal government are currently studying, the possibility of issuing some new form of storm insurance. It is likely that the legislation will be introduced in the next session of Congress. THE RED CROSS aid."program for this year's hurricane and flood ^ victims been practically^completed.

'-'Yes, it is ravenous for fuel," Shelburne said. But, so what? It is teaching him a lot of things. I gathered that he'd learned among other things to run his Chevvie inside Hannibal with the engine that General Motors gave her. With that he chugs sedately •to the .^countryside. The further away from human habitation the better when he sparks those jets. THE THING is a long way from being practical, and Shelburne said he supposed he'd sell it as a collector's item; somebody surely should be interested in owning Missouri's first jet-powered auto. •,< He said also that with the facts he'd already obtained by searing research he did believe he could . take out some patents on heat exchangers, afterburners, power- boosters, nozzles and a few other Jtems he 'had to invent to make it work.

But there is no doubt that , success is based on hard work. AnotHer ingredient, according to Lyle M. -'Spencer, President of Science Research Associates, is the capacity for self-criticism that all successful' executives have. Most of them, he found, are secretly dis-; satisfied with their own work. This conclusion was reached on the basis of a survey.of 463 presidents of companies averaging $3,500,000 a year. It is .applicable not ' only to leaders of business, but to successful persons in all lines: It is as true of the artist, the scientist, the teacher as it is of the businessman and industrialist. The successful artist is never satisfied with his work. He is ceaseless in his efforts to improve. The scientist is never satisfied with one success; each discovery spurs , him on to another. Such people 'challenge themselves with' increasingly harder tasks.' The willingness to work hard and • the capacity of self-criticism are seldom -understood. Many people expect success with neither of them. -They do little to improve (heir efforts. They are more interested in seeing the time pass, in enjoyment, or "kicks" on the job, unwilling to evaluate their work or themselves. The first lessons if! success are limited to thos« who *(fe willing to pay that price* George Dixon The Washington Scene WASHINGTON—This is to tip off Republican National Chairman Leonard W. Hall that he is harboring a saboteur in his headquarters at 1625 Eye Street, Northwest—probably in the mailing room: the skullduggery has to be an inside job, because there is no other explanation. The other day I received S news release from Mr. Hall. I opened the letter myself and examined the envelope microscopically. It had not been tampered with after mailing. In the mimeographed release, Chairman Hall stated that he had not been rendered wide-eyed with astonishment .over the Democratic "revelation" that Adlai E. Stevenson \yould be among its 1956 presidential aspirants. Mr. Hall's offering was a masterpiece of sarcasm and a distinct contribution to political belles letters. But, across the bottom of the release, someone in the heart of his own headquarters had scrawled in large letters:"" '•. "Bull." THE CULTURAL LIFE in Adam and Ev« Mews, London, must be stimulating. The other day two of the most illuminated denizens of this aristocratic back alley were fined five shillings each for being-drunk and disorderly. " At -current rate of exchange this is only 70 cents, but the couple demurred at paying. In fact the feminine half went so far as to telephone No.. 10 Downing ; Street. 1 This was not such an extravagant gestura as it may sound so because.the prisoners both have entree to the prime. minister's home when they are not making night hideous in Adam and Eve Mews.; The male prisoner was John Spencer Churchill, nephew of Sir Winston, and the female was his wife Kitty. In addition, John's sister, Clarissa, is married to the present tenant of No. 10 Downing.Street, a Sir Anthony Eden. SEVERAL BOBBIES testified in court that the Churchills injected a little verve into the dull. nocWrnal life in Adam and. Eve Mews by rendering animal noises. John-;howled .like a dog, Kitty meowed like a cat, which ; seems appropriate. : I am not familiar with-Sir-: Anthony Eden, except by repute arid hearsay, but it must be a satisfaction-to him to have "such lively in- Haws. When -the cares' of'office s press too burdehsomely he can always invite s the young Churchills to pop in for a spot of tea and a round of animal imitations. He might also be able to use them in the House of Commons where cat and dog fights do not incur an imposition of five shillings. IN TRYING TO TALK -herself out of having to pay the five bob, Mrs. Churchill put forth the perfectly logical explanation that she had not been bent upon disturbing the peace but had made a cat-like noise to her husband to reassure him.- i • ; "It is a private way we have of speakinf to each other," she said. ' I cannot comprehend why British justice, touted around the world for its fairness, did not accept the lady's explanation that she howled at her husband like a cat to reassure him.
