On the way north in the plane Martinez, who speaks only Spanish, muttered his last name several times to the stewardess and each time she brought him « martini. Discovering its mistake, the airline brought 'the tippling traveller back to New York, put him up in a hotel room, and finally shipped him off to San Juan. Martinez was infatuated with the whole whirly situation. There can't be too much wrong with a world where a guy can get taken a thousand miles to a place he doesn't want to go, drink drinks he probably doesn't want just because they sound like his last name and have the whole thing wind up with everybody friends. It Could Be, You Know! Views of Others Beria Purge Won't Change Red Goal of World Rule Some might see in the. fall from power of Russia's No. 2 man an event which could affect the world situation. But most Indications are that they would be seeing something that just isn't there. Rather, there is considerable evidence that the downfall of Lavrent! Beria. Russia's deputy premier and head of the secret police, is purely an internal matter. Experts in the field of international politics see small chance that the circumstances surrounding Beria's cast are such as to afect Russian external policy in Korea or Europe. A tip-off on what very possibly may be the' principal case against Beria is to be found in the fifth of six charges against him as listed in Pravda, official Communist Party newspaper: "Attempting to turn the Ministry of Interior into a privately dominated force." That ties in with recent reports from Europe that Beria had been craftily increasing his power since Stalin's death. Only the day before the announcement of Beria's fall, NEA Correspondent Leon Dennen reported, "The chief of Russia's secret police is inching towards the seizure of power in the Kremlin." That reflects the old Kremlin tradition that if you plan to wield the axe, wield it fast, before you get it yourself. The possibility has also been cited that Beria, as head of the secret police, was made the fall guy for the recent uprisings against Russia in East Germany and other parts of Eastern Europe. And there's the possibility that Premier Malenkov is sacrificing Beria as a sop to the Russian people, who both hated and feared the police chief. Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia said in an interview only a few days before Beria's fall that while big policy changes were undoubtedly going on inside Russia, there was no reason to think she had changed her "basic aims." The President's Committee on International Information Activities reported to Mr. Eisenhower July 8 that there was "no reliable evidence that changes in the Soviet regime and in Soviet tactics involve any change in the basic Soviet objective of a Communist world controlled by the Kremlin." Thus the facts at hand would indicate that while Russia is having her troubles they do not necessarily in this case involve the outside world. In fact, they probably don't. Keep S.S. Tax Static If President Elsenhower has his way, your take-homo pay won't be nicked another one- half of one per cent come January, and your employer won't have to sweeten the Social Security kitty by that additional amount, either. The President Is right. His critics are wrong when they insist that the scheduled Increase should go into effect automatically the first of the year. The Social Security reserve now stands at >18 billions. That, as the Chief Executive says, should be enough. Actually, the reserve doesn't exist in the form of cash. For years, the Treasury has been borrowing It as rapidly as It accumulates depositing bonds In Its stead and paying Interest thereon. The present margin between income and outgo In the Social Security fund Is building that reserve at the rate of about |1 billion a year. Government statisticians — s.S. or otherwise — have advanced no actuarial forecasts Justifying a larger reserve In the years Immediately ahead. The fact of the matter Is that the Social Security taxpayers can use this half of one per cent of their income better at home than by sending It to Washington. They already are sending a substantial portion of their earning! there. As President Elsenhower says, an S18 billion reserve Is enough. The tax should not be changed unless or until something more convincing than a bureaucrat's dream establishes the need for It. —NashvUle Banner.

She can keep up with Tallulah In repartee, if not in revelry, moves with easy grace both on and off stage. It was generally suspected that her first big contract, ending ominously In November, 1052, the i month of the great change, would be her last, that she would fade away wjth her father. But she fooled the cynics, came up with a new contract, and pay boost, from NBC. We're happy for Margaret, wish her success. Too, maybe tho new contract will serve to scotch these rumors about her running for Congresi. There are too many performers there already. —Charlotte (N.C.) News. WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Not much attention was paid to It nt the time, but In addition to all the Democratic politicians who called on ex-President Harry S. Truman during his recent Washington visit, there were nine Peter Edson Short Essay Says A Lot Millions of words have been written on the subject of free enterprise — and doubtless a fair amount of the output has even been read. W« freely admit, however, that editorials In this newspaper on the subject, like most of the rest of what has been snid and written about, used more words and told less of the story than we find In a prize winning essay of 25 words. This Is what won a national prize for Cajolyn Hentz: "There isn't any miracle about our power to produce; it's Just that our system of Incentives and rewards Is a better spur than force.

Most of the calls were purely social. The ambassadors who had been In Washington while Mr. Truman wns in the White House merely came around to pay their official respects. But several of the ambassadors came around to ask Mr. Truman If he couldn't do something to get them in to see President Eisenhower, They snld they had filed their official requests with the ever happened. They wanted some action. Ex-President Trumnri had to confess to his old friends that there wasn't much he could do about It. In loot, it was surmised that if he sent such a request over to the White House, It would do the ambassadors' cause more harm than Rood. Mrs. Hobby Objects In a recent article by this correspondent on the "State Department Clean-up" it was stated that Mrs. Oveta Gulp Hobby. Secretary of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, would not give "assurances of no security risk" In the case of Mrs.Mildred Mcnfee Horton. Mrs. Hobby says, as reported, that she sponsored Mrs. orton'K appointment as U.S. delegate to the United Nations Economic nnc Social Council. Mrs. Hobby says she wa s asked to recommend someone for this appointment by the Department of state. At no time, however, says Mrs. Hobby, did she refuse to vouch for Mrs. Horton on the question of security, and she was never asked to do so. Political Courtesy.. President Eisenhower invite in Adlai Stevenson before he bi gan his world tour. President Tru man invited Ir ex-President Herb ert Hoover and put him to wor on postwar famine-relief problems even though Truman's political ai vlsers were against It. And Tru man's first act when he revisite the Senate was to go shake hand with the ailing Senator Taft. There was considerable speculation and gossip in Washington over whether President Eisenhower should have invited cx-Prcsidcnt Truman to come over to the White House for a friendly chat, u became an argument of protocol vs politics. Ex-President Truman sort of put the kibosh on any such meeting before he got to Washington, by saying that the President" had more to do than see every Tom, Dick and Harry who came along] There was some feeling that th courteous thing would have bee: for Mr. Truman to go over an pay his respects to the President just to show there was no hare feeling. But Raymond D. Muir deputy chief of protocol at UK State Department, Is authority for the statement that an ex-Preslden should always wait to be Invited to the White House, "Just like any other citizen." Horn Blows at Acheson At the dinner reunion which ex- President Truman had with those members of his cabinet who were Washington, former Secretary of Slate Dean Acheson presided as master of ceremonies. Acheson told one on himself. When he came back from his vacation in the West Indies, the first morning he set out for his law office he decided to walk. It'e a good two-mile hike. Going along one busy street, the former Secretary of State said he heard an auto horn being sounded somewhat angrily behind him. The driver of the car kept It up. Turn- 'ng around to see what it was all about, the ex-secretary said he thought to himself, "What's that? People still giving Acheson the Bronx cheer?" Peron Man and Wife Washingtonians who keep up on the international situation by reading the society pages have wondered a number of times about the popularity of the Argentine ambassador, Dr. Hipolito J. Paz. They are among the most regular attendants at all diplomatic parties in the capital. This is something of a surprise in view of the unpopularity of the diplomat who is an anti-Peron man explains it, "The Argentine government sent an extremely personable envoy with a beautiful wife." Hapless Harry Stymied Retired Maj. - Gen. Harry Vaughan has found out the hard way that he doesn't rate around the White House any more. Mr. Vaughan Is now in public relations in Washington He got a request from one of his clients for President Eisenhower's autograph. Vaughan sent the request over to the executive offices for handling through channels, as General Vaughan had himself handled many such requests when he was military aide to President Truman. The Vaughan request apparant- y got as far as the offices of the Assistant to the President,. Gov. Sherman Adams. There it was stepped with a comment that they :ouldn't think of bothering: the 'resident for anything like that, will give frank opinions about his Speaks of Fellow Bulls It isn't often that one senator will give frank opinions about his olleagues, other than to call one f them "My distinguished oppon- nt" during debate.

West simply didn't want to give up his only possible entry to the long spade suit. South could have made his contract by continuing with the diamonds in order to force out .West's sing. But how was South to know that West had the king of diamond? The finesse had apparently succeeded, and South was afraid that West still' had one of the two missing aces as the entry to his spades. Having won the first round of diamonds with the queen, South next turned his attention to clubs. Bast won the first club trick and ' shadowed her smile. "There are worse things than the amputation of a leg," the U-I starlet told me gravely. "Look at the hundreds of G.I.'s who get along with one leg. Sarah Bernhardt lost a leg and went on with her acting career. "I feel confident that my career as an actress will go on. I ca.i still sing and paint and write.

Sen. Lyndon Johnson of Texas —"not being particularly adept^in rensics, or unusually articulate, e does not at first sell himself what he is worth. But as quick- as any man I know, he can go It was now perfectly natural for South to lead a club to dummy and try another diamond finesse. This was, of course, a fatal move. West won with the king of diamonds, cashed his two remaining spades, and then led to his partner's ace of hearts. The casual refusal to take the first diamond trick produced a set of two tricks instead of allowing declarer to make his contract with ease. Very quietly, without any of the press catching on, John Agar'« wife, Loretta, has been working as a fashion model to help pay the bills that mounted while he was on the county farm. 15 Years Ago In Blythevillt the heart of an issue.

For their first ye"nr in Washington they gave no parties. They hired a top-rank social secretary. Meta Morris Evans, and with her they studied the Washington social scene. Then Senorn de Paz gave a small tea. Gradually they began accepting a few invitations and by careful planning stepped up their own entertaining;.

For the most part, his thinking Is straight, though not very fast. He is a very serious and intense man. and IT have wondered if his lack of a sense of humor would not be his greatest drawback as a leader." Of senators in general Freshman Gore observed—"If you sit down to lunch with a senator or meet him in a social hour, he is a Chesterfield. But on the floor of the Senate each one is a prima donna carrying a flag which reads, is like going into a on Me." Entering by trying to avoid unnecessary annoyance, worry and emotional upsets. If the condition has lasted for a great many years, treatment Is complicated, long, and often not completely successful.
