PACE g—NADCATPCK KEW8 <CONN".), WBPNESPAY. OCT. Is. IMn DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Congressman Kilday Tells Radford That Navy Should Offer Constructive Criticism; Wyoming's Sen. Hunt Says Nazis Can't Be De-Nazified; Oil Company Gives Free Ride To Bill Boyle's Party. Washington. — The public now knows • what happened when Admiral Arthur Radford testified at an open session of the House Armed Services committee. But they don't know what happened at the closed-door session which preceded his testimony. After Admiral Radford read his confidential statement — later repeated in the open session — of gripes against the air force and Defense Secretary Louis Johnson, Congressman Paul Kilday of Texas remarked to him: "Admiral, I am disappointed that you did not come here with an affirmative statement of what the navy can do, instead of a criticism of what the air force can do." "I'm just the leadoff man," replied Radford. "Later on we'll have some witnesses on the affirmative side." "That's my point," shot tack Kilday. "The nary has chosen to lead off by criticizing the othei- fellow, instead of telling us what the navy can do and how much you need in surface ships, submarines and air power. "It's obious to me that you want to promote all this discord, which must be of no little comfort to a potential enemy. I'm for ending it right here and now, without letting this committee be used to carry on such bickering at an open hearing." Secretary of the Navy Matthews didn't open his mouth until after the committee overrode Kilday's protests and voted 9 to 6 to give the admirals an open hearing. Then he remarked to Chairman Carl Vinson of Georgia, who sided with the admirals: "The responsibility is now yours." "Mr. Secretary," interposed Kilday, "you might as well cancel out your court-martial of Captain Crommelin. He is not promoting discord any longer. This committee has taken over for him after the vote today." Germany is Still Nazi Just back from Germany, Senator Lester Hunt of Wyoming warns that it will take an army of educators following up the army of occupation to defeat Nazism in Germany. "There is no such thing as de- Nazifying a Nazi," the Wyoming Democrat insists. The only solution, Hunt believes, is to place an American superintendent or principal over every German school and an American president over every German university. "It would cost us less," he promises, ''than the first month of World War III." Free Air Bide The Democrats were tipped off- that this columnist was checking" on what Air Force planes might fly to Kansas City for Bill Boyle's big home-coming jamboree. Possibly this had something to do with the fact that not a single Air Force r-lane made the trip. However, a few high officials still got a free ride—in a plush, private plane owned by Phillips Petroleum Co. This plane was put at the disposal of the Democratic National Committee by Phillips' chief lobbyist, R. C. Joplin, and its free passengers included Secretary of Labor Maurice Tobin, U. S. Treasurer Georgia Neese Clark and Assistant Secretary of Commerce Tom Davis. The plane also stopped in St. Louis to pick up Vice-President Barkley who had been courtin'. After the party, Phillips Petroleum flew Barkley and Tobin back to Washington, then the plane returned to its home base in Oklahoma. Note—The oil companies have been lobbying for control of tidelands oil and against Leland Olds' confirmation to the Federal Power Commission. But if Mr. Joplin was in a mood to lobby, he didn't get a chance with Vice-President FLOWERS For All OecMfon* FLOWEB8 TKUOBAFUJCD MELBOURNE'S FLOWER SHOP Ut ROBBER A VENUS IM.

Senator Miller'* VoU< The sudden death of Senator Bert Miller of Idaho may hold up displaced-persons legislation until next year. The bill removing religious discrimination from the displaced persona act was supposed to come up for Senate debate this week, but now the judiciary committee will be expected to attend Senator Miller's funeral in Boise. Since this Is the committee handling the displaced persons bill, it may prevent the bill from reaching the floor at all. However, there is one thinr? the Senate ought to know. The/ evening before Senator Miller died, as one of his last wishes, he told Senator Magnuson of Washington that he wanted to vote for the displaced persons bill. Undoubtedly Senator Miller would have preferred to have his colleagues stay In "Washington and vote to aid thousands of refugees who are still alive, than mourn aver him In Idaho. ,,;, Japanese Campetttlon While the State Department plans to lower tariffs a New England 'manufacturer is getting ready to put the blast on General Douglas MacArthur for encouraging Japanese production of cheap, competitive goods for the American market. He is Alfred F. Reilly of Providence, R. I., president of Evans Case company, biggest U. S. producer of cigarette lighters. Reilly will demand a congressional investigation of MacArthur on the ground that he is using U. S. Taxpayers' money to build up Jaip industries at the expense of American business and labor. Reilly will charge that MacArthur has encouraged Jap production of cheaip cigarette lighters to a point where American manufacturers are in serious jeopardy. The Japanese, he says, have made exact models of the Evans. Ronson and other American lighters, using a copper mold", thus saving research, tool and die designing and other costs American companies had to pay. They now plan to go into large- scale production using inferior materials and' cheap labor, unless COMBINATION ALUMINtlM STORM WINDOWS ft DOORS NEW ENGLAND BALES CO. AL8CO tSZ Batik St..

Built in 1913, dedicated May 30th, 1914 In 1910 the death of John H. Whittemore gave, impetus for erecting a memorial to the man who had given the town its two finest schools, its handsome library and various other benefactions. At a great mass meeting citizens decided that a bridge would be a fitting monument; so with funds raised by public subscription a stone bridge at the foot of'Maple street was begun. The building of the bridge gave opportunity to all citizens, rich and! poor, prominent and obscure, to share in a public service, and when completed m 1914, the John Howard Whittemore Memorial Bridge lent the borough, new dignity.
