ClarkCose Could Be Probed Without Hurting High Court The case of Supreme Court Justice Tom Clark is one of the more difficult moral issues to present itself to t h e Congress and thfc American public. A congressional committee inquiring into past operations of the Justice Department would like to question him about his actions as attorney general in seven specific cases. Clark has declined an invitation before the group and offer .public explanation. In his note to the committee* chairman, Clark apparently did give some private accounting of his conduct in the seven cases. But he argued that for him to testify publicly vould be to plunge the Supreme Court into the "strife of public affairs and partisan politics." This answer, of course, will hardly satisfy the strong anti-Clark partisans in and out of Congress. And it would certainly seem that the justice owes the public some sort of explanation, even if it not be given in formal committee testimony. Yet, however convenient the rationalization in his case, it is probably wise '' that the high court be kept free of t h e turmoil of congressional politics. It would not be good for the dignity of the court if its members were compelled to submit to that kind of controversial grilling. Some would argue that Clark himself is not good for the dignity of t h e court, and ought not be allowed to hide behind his judicial robes. But many observers think it would be unwise to damage the stature of the whole court simply to visit wrath upon Clark by dragging him into an explosive inquiry. These same observers, .with some sanity, suggest that if the evidence against Clark is strong enough to put in serious doubt his fitness for the bench, then direct proceedings to remove him ought to be undertaken. In such a matter, he would of course be compelled to i testify. The result would be either vindication or removal. In that fashion, the issue of Clark's conduct could be settled without disturbing the Supreme Court's, constitutional independence, without opening the way to a continual trotting of justices up Capitol Hill, in the manner of harassed department heads. If the evidence does not support such drastic action againat Clark, then prob- ably the most that can be hoped for is that he respond to appeals to make public the explanation he has for his conduct an attorney general. To subpoena him would be to strip the cloak of detachment from the most respected tribunal in the land. Views of Others Antipasto We have an opportunity to Inspect the result of our labors in spreading black soil on the patchy areas of our lawn, preparatory to reseed' ing. The introduction of these favorable conditions has produced a significant multiplication in the number of ant colonies. Ants like a nice environment and we seem to have provided it. We have thought rather hopelessly of having the usual resort to various patented ant killers, which, if they rarely succeed in doing anything to the ants, ore sure-fire in discouraging the production of any grass. By chance, however, our eye lit in the dictionary on the word "nousoir," the unfamfliarity of which was a challenge to curiosity. The definition as given is. "A caviarlike relish made of ants poured in a mortar and cooked." Has anybody ft mortar and pestle to lend out, or shall we just say the French are peculiar and let it go at that? —The Chicago Daily Tribune. Trouble Spot Backing our opinion merely on observation of human nature, and the lessons that history have given us, we think that Korea, is going to be a trouble spot, and a threat to world peace for a long time to come, regardless of truce or no truce. A civil war Is the most embittering experience any people can suffer. Brother turns against brother, and lather against son. Neighbors spy on each other, and murder stalks In broad daylight. Scars of hate from this kind of thing linger on for generations. Look at us, here in the Southland nearly a century alter our civil war. Resentment still rankles against the "Yankees" and until the Eisenhower victory, the politicians were able to use echoes from this conflict, with its completely outmoded arguments, as the chief reason we should remain solidly of the Democratic Party. Korea will continue to be the symbol of unrest in the world-wide struggle between people who •would tnke Communism for their creed and those who crave liberty and freedom, —Laurel (Miss.) Leader-Call. That's Settled The nation sighs Its relief. A momentous Issue has been settled. Mr. Henry R. Luce, husband of Ambassador Luce, will bs able to go to dinner with his* wife. He will even sit beside her. Now there Is news we have been waiting for. The New York Times brings the good tidings: The Italian Government, through its Foreign Ministry, "has informed all diplomats in Rome that Mr, Luce, as the Ambassador's consort, will rank immediately behind ministers plenipotentiary. This means that he will be able to sit beside his wife at diplomatic parties and hostesses will not have to feel embarrassed about table arrangements." Goody! 1 —The Atlanta Journal. No Place to Park Secretary of Interior Douglas McKay, an Oregon automobile dealer for a smaller car. said the other day he had driven his new air-conditioned limousine only 24 miles since May 10, and most of this was in trying to find a place to park.

West opened the king of clubs, shifted to the king of diamonds, and then led his singleton heart when he was allowed to hold the diamond. East took the king of hearts and returned his remaining diamond, allowing West to force out the ace with the ten of diamonds. In dummy for the first and only time, declarer led a trump and finessed the jack to West's queen. West cashed the ace of clubs and then led the queen of diamonds. East ruffed the queen of diamonds, took the ace of hearts, and led a third heart for West to ruff. By this time South was down to four trumps. He hoped to win tricks with three of them, but even this consolation was denied him. West led another diamond, and East ruffed with the eight of spades. South had to overruff with the ten, after which West was sure to win two trump tricks with his ace and nine. East and West chalked up *?QO points for holding South to three tricks. It's perfectly true that East and West could have made a game, but that would have been worth considerably less than 700 points, To make the cheese more binding, at the other table the East-West pair failed t.o bid the game. Hence Sotith's overcall cost about 600 points!
