PACE S—NACCATCCK NEWS JCONN.). FltlnAY, OCT. H, DREW PEARSON ON T*ie WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: President Has Soured On Agriculture Secretary Because Of Anderson's Fight Against 90 Per Cent Farm Supports—-Calls Him "Big-Interest Man"; Lewis At His Thundering Best At Meeting To Settle Coal Strike. Washington—Only a few insiders Icno-w it, but President Truman has turned sour against his former secretary of agriculture, Clinton Anderson. In fact, the other day the President hurled his favorite insult against Anderson, now serving in the Senate from New Mexico. He called him a "big- interest man". What prompted this bitter epithet was Anderson's fight against flat, 90 per cent farm supports. The President had long suspected that Anderson was quietly knifing the Brannan Farm Plan, but the clincher came when Anderson urged a ''compromise" 75 to 90 per cent, flexible price-support scale. Anderson had spread ifee impression that the President was backing his compromise. Puzzled, a congressional visitor put the q.ues- tions warily to Truman. "In the Senate," he said, "Elmer Thomas (of Oklahoma) quoted you as being for 90 per cent parity, while Dick Russell (of .Georgia) said you were against 90 per cent." "I don't know how Dick got that idea," Truman broke in'.' "Senator Anderson seems to have taken command," added the •congressman. "Personally I don't care tor Anderson's .philosophy." "Well, Clint Anderson is a big- interest man," declared the President firmly. •'As between Anderson's bill and straight 90 per cent parity," Truman continued, "I naturally favor 90 per. cent because we campaigned on that basis." The President added that, of all the he Pace's the .best, , because the Georgia congressman had included farm bills that had* come out, liked Congressman: Stephen last contract, which expired June 30. The Southern mine owners, led by Joseph Moody, didn't want to go this far. contending there should first be reforms in the welfare fund. Boiling mad, Lewis thundered: "I will not discuss the old contract unless you gentlemen are willing to» talk aHout increased wages and payments into the we- fare fund, as well as reduced working hours for the men who toil underground, there is no purpose in my remaining here." Turning , a baleful glare on Moses. Love and Moody, he added wrothily that he might have known he would be wasting his time endeavoring to deal with "these economic puppets of the United States Steel Co. and The Cleveland Trust Co." The operator trio chuckled. They had been called worse names than this by the eloquent miners' boss. 'Captive Mines "Why, you have no authority to speak for your bosses in U. S. Steel or The Cleveland Trust Co," went on, referring to the Lewis Cleveland bank's interest in Pittsburgh Consolidation Coal and TI. S. Steel's ownership of the H. C. Prick Co. "So, why do you waste my time? If it was a question of matching your authority in the United Mine Workers, I would send five' of my local union presidents to -deal across the table with you." The operators reminded Lewis that he shouldn't accuse them of making no "offer" to settle the strike, since he had made no spe- Naugatuck Jaycee Leaders To Attend Waterbury Gathering Sherman H.

"There is no question about that," agreed the President emphatically. Note—Secretary of Agriculture Charlie Brannan has been fretful over Anderson's opposition, but hasn't raised his voice against his former boss—because Charlie owes his job to him. John I~ Lewis Boars John L. Lewis was at his roaring best when the coal operators met with Federal Mediation Chief Cy Ching on their first try to settle the coal strike. While the meeting got nowhere, it certainly didn't lack sound effects. « — The Northern operators^led by Harry Moses, president of U. S. Steel's H. C. Frick Co., and George Love, of the Pittsburgh Consolidation Coal Co.—suggested negotiations be based on that Ching Gets Wordsllde Mediator Ching diplomatically remarked that the coal strike could never be mediated and settled until both sides showed a more cooperative attitude. But this provoked another wordslide from Lewis. "What do you mean by mediation?" he demanded. "Why don't you use some on the operators to make them stop their highhanded oppression of labor?" ''I have no authority to make either side in this dispute do anything," replied Ching. "Ail I can do is bring you together and help you settle your differences." "Then what are we talking for, if you have no authority?" bellowed f John L. "Haven't you the interest of the American people at heart? Don't you know the difference between right and wrong?' "Now, -wait, a Ching, curbing minute," retorted his temper. "No FLOWERS For All Occasion!

I can only suggest and make proposals as we go along. I can't force either of you to accept anything. I'm no arbitrator." On this note, the meeting finally- broke up. Note—There is little prospect of settling the 'steel strike until the coal strike is settled. For the steel companies won't start their furnaces until they are sure of coal. Capital News Capsules NAVAL REBEL — Capt. John Crommelin, now leaking propaganda for the admirals, was not always such a good friend of the admirals. Crommelin was the man who spilled the beans on the secret Green Bowl Annapolis fraternity by which certain admirals have sometimes Dominated the Navy. Crommelin claimed the Green Bowlers were a fraternity by which the admirals helped each other get promoted. UTAH JUDGE'S ROMANCE— The FBI has dug up a report on Willis Ritter, appointed to be a Federal judge in Utah, showing that back in OPA days, Ritter made some phone calls at government expense to a girl friend in Albuquerque; also that he.took a trip see her at government expense. While Ritter never should have done this, still if all the private phone calls and air junkets made at government expense were held against government officials, a lot of admirals and generals and even he secretary of defense would be out of their jobs today.

The story of Peter Paul, candy-makers now known from one end of America to the other, reads like a Horatio Alger or Neck Carter "penny-dreadful." The founder of the company was an Armenian immigrant by the name of Peter Halajian who landed in the United States in 1890. Thrift in time established him as a proprietor of a small chain of candy stores in Naugatuck and Torrington, Conn., where he sold; confectionery and ice cream of his own making. Because his customers, found difficulty in pronouncing his Armenian name, he legally adopted the English e'nuiv- alcnt, Peter Paul. Since separately owned little candy kitchens in various Connecticut towns had scant chance of ever amounting to much in 1919 Ictcr Paul, in the face of some ridioule. persuaded tivo Armenian friends to pool their interests with ins to organize a candy-manufacturing firm in New Haver. By 1922 the factory had grown so more space was needed and it was dteeided to build and move to Naugatuck.
