WEDNESDAY, JULY 22, 1953 WATHKVILLE (ARK.)' COUTtTKR NEWS PAGE SEVEN ear's Congressional Term |Has Been Undistinguished By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP)'— Congress is putting off until next year what it didn't do this |y r ear. From the standpoint of lawmaking, this' was an undistinguished year. There's no guarantee next year will be any more productive. F This year's legislative dreariness was obscured by the lightning flashes of personality Ivhich illuminated the Capitol from time to time and gave it a liveliness otherwise lacking. There was the picture of Presi- Eisenhower, new in his job, -Tying to push and pull his Repub- can-controlled Congress along the oad he wanted it to travel while l learning how to deal with the lawmakers. Individuals like Sen. Joseph Mo ai'thy (R-Wis) looking for sub- ersives and aging: Rep. Daniel A. Fleed (R-NY) fighting against ex- ension of the excess profits tax |ent color to the show. Their£ was also the very human drama of Eisenhower and Sen. Taft BiR-Gmu), vvJio had been rivals for |lheir party's presidential nomina- tion in 1952, learning to work together in 1953. If the congressional performance tt*as slow this year, it could be excused on the ground that a new administration was trying to gei adjusted to us new responsibilites and was feeling its way along. Next year it will have no such excuse next, year the Republican administration can be fairly judged on its performance. And it wil [have a particularly good reason for wanting to put on a satisfactory one in 1954. Face Judgment Next year is an election year, the ADVERTISEMENT FOR BIDS Scaled proposals will be received |by the Board of Commissioners of •Drainage District No. 17. of Missls- Isippi County, Arkansas, in the .of- Ifice of the District of the First Na- Itfonal Bank Building, Blytheville. • Arkansas, until 10:30 o'clock A.

Redman, Secretary 7111-15-18-22 IHIS SMILE'S ENOUGH—H took 15 years, but Max Franken: berg was finally reunited with his two daughters and four grand, children in Minneapolis, Minn. The 69-year-old refugee, a victim !(0f Hitler's persecution, speaks three languages, yet he was unable to say thanks in any of them. first time the Republicans have had to face the judgment of the voters since taking office in January 1953. All 435 House seats and one-third of the 96 Senate seats are at stake in the elections of November 1954. At present the Republican majorities are so hair-thin that a few changes in the 1954 election results could give the Democrats control of Congress. This would mean for President Eisenhower, still in charge of the executive branch of the government, that for the following two years he'd have to depend upon a Democratic-controlled Congress for the success of any programs he offered. It is one of the political legends, not necessarily true at all, that members of Congress, more conscious of the voters, always do more in an election year. Actually the 1954 election results may be determined by factors not at all connected with the record established by Congress—perhaps by events not even dreamed of at this moment. For instance, if the elections were being held this November, and if the Eisenhower administration had managed to get a. truce n Korea, the Republicans probably would be swept back Into office. The same may not be true in November 1954. For in that year :he results oi the truce—possibly" drawn out, frustrating peace negotiations and even ugly developments—might sway the voters the other way. So Eisenhower will have his hands full in 1954. not only intrying to lead his Republicans in Congress to a good showing, but in making a record for his Republican administration in foreign affairs as well. This year the biggest single piece of controversial legislation was on giving the states rights, out to their historic boundaries, to the oil in be waters off their shores. And Eisenhower succeeded, after a bitter struggle, in getting the excess profits tax extended another six months. He seems reasonably sure, before this session of Congress ends, of getting the reciprocal trade agreement program extended another year. And before it quits this rear Congress has some other pieces of "must" legislation on Us books: a d m i s s i "o n of perhaps 240,000 European refugees over a ,hree-year period; authority lor Eisenhower bo send surplus food abroad in an emergency. But put off until next year, with no certainty of achievement, are extension of social security; changes in the Taft-Hartley Act; the question of statehood for Hawaii and Alaska. And the Republicans will have 0 find ways of raising money to neet government expenses and eciding whether to scuttle foreign id, n step which might wreck Eisenhower's foreign program. $ 1.990.00 A Great Big Economy 3-Bedroom Home $ 1,990.00 Pre Cut and Panelized Ready to Build Save Thousanc/s of Dollars!

It was from their newspapers that they first discovered that Goldie the lioness had slipped away from a downtown circus. She was so bewildered by the fuss she caused, she turned around and went back. It's exciting to be an eye-witness to any unusual event. But being on the spot is not much better than seeing one or two photographs of the action, or seeing a headline about it, or hearing a brief announcement. All of these can whet your appetite for news, but they cannot satisfy your hunger for the whole story. You need the newspaper for that. • That goes for advertising, too. The brief message that hangs in the air... or brief headlines here or there ... may indeed have a momentary interest. But the newspaper ad carries the brass-tacks quality, the urgency of the newspaper itself. Like a news item, the ad can be examined and re-examined. Can be read any time. Anywhere. Can be clipped and carried in a pocketbook. And just as the newspaper speaks the special language of the town it mirrors, the ads themselves have the same important local quality. Add to this the fact that the newspaper reaches just about everybody in town, and you know why the newspaper is the nation's most effective advertising medium. No wonder advertisers—both retail and national—invest more money in newspapers than in any other form of advertising.
