PAGE 2—NAUGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), WEDNESDAY, NOV. 0, 104!) DREW PEARSON ON he WASHINGTON T MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Harry Truman And Harold Ickes Agree On Indians; Armless Veteran Brings Admirals And Generals Together; Navy's Pitfalls Pointed Out By Pro-Navy Civilian Washington—Harry Truman and Harold Ickes, both -men of positive opinions and quick tempers, had a long and friendly talk the other day. There was a time when the two almost spit in each other's face over I ho question of making oilman Ed Pauley undersecretary of the Navy, but the other day all past, unpleasantness evaporated as the two discussed New York politics and Indian affairs. It was because of Ickes' interest in Indians that he was first made secretary of the interior 17 years ago. He had been recommended merely as commissioner of Indian affairs, but at the last minute FDR. made him secretary of the interior instead. One of the things Ickes talked to Truman about was the plight of the N'avajos and the veto of a bill just passed by Congress putting- the N'avajos under the state laws of Arizona and New Mexico. The Catholic church has been v.orried ever the divorce and remarriage systems of the Navajos by which they merely appear before their own tribal authorities if they wish to divorce. However, both Ickes and Truman felt that the Indians wore entitled to their ancient tribal customs. Furthermore. Ickes wa£ suspicious that the move to put the N'avajos under state laws, while sincere on the part of the church, •was a blind on the part of the pol- itirians to take over their water lights. He suspected the big New Mexican cattlemen and ranchers—most of them Republicans, but some of them contributing nonetheless to Democratic Senator Clinton Anderson—of engineering this part of the bill .through Congress. Anderson, incidentally, had telephoned Secretary of the Interior Julius Krug during the Senate debate urging Krug to accept the amendment putting the Indians (and their water rights) under state laws. Krug agreed and the amendment stayed in. However. President Truman took the unusual step of slapping down his secretary of the interior and vetoing the Navajo bill. Admirals And Generals Shake It took armless Harold Russell, head of the Amvets, to get top- isr.king brass of the armed services together recenty. The incident occurred at American university's rally to raise 3250.000 for its war memorial athletic center, at which time young Grandfather of '49 President Paul Douglass had the courage to invite Maj. Gen. Edward S. Bres of the Army; Admiral Glen Davis; Maj. Gen. Edwin Lyon of the Air Force; Brig. Gen. E. A. Pollock of the Marines; and Admiral Merlin O'Neil of the Coast Guard. As this array of officers arrived, there was an awkward pause! Swiftly Russell, who once starred in "The Best Tears of Our Lives" stepped into the breach. Extending the two hooks where his hands had been, he said: "Gentlemen. let's all shake." Which they did to the applause of the other guests. Note —Maybe President Paul Douglass of American University should start a public relations course for the armed services What's Wrong With Navy No battleship admiral is more * ~~*~ •*" - & *£ FOLLOWING his arrival in Chicago to address a meeting of the American Petroleum Institute, Vice President Alben W.

Yet here is what he reported to Play makers Plan .

Advisors To Study Polio Aid Funds Plans to avert potential disaster caused by this year's unprecedented polio epidemics which depleted epidemic aid funds of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis will be discussed by State Advisors on Women's Activities at their fifth annual conference. Nov. 7 through It;, at the Wardman Park Hotel, Washington, D. C., it was announced today. Continued medical care for at least 17,000 of the 40,000 children and adults stricken this year, as well as continued assistance for thousands of victims from, previous epidemics, is jeopardized by the present shortage, of funds, according to Miss Elaine Whitelaw, National Director of Women's Activities. Costs of providing hospitalization, medical treatment and professional personnel for affected areas in all parts of the country rose to a steady $100,000 per day by September, she said. "Stop-gap aid, provided through an emergency drive, assures care of patients only until the end of this year," declared Miss Whitelaw. "Their recovery, and the future of research as well, depend largely upon success of the 1950 March of Dimes, January 16-31."

TBt. 43?i then Secretary of the Navy Forrestal in 1945: "There is, always has been, ^..^ always will be as long as the prin-J ciple of individual responsibility and exclusive authority is continued, a centrifugal force in the Department of the Navy that the ttsual secretary, possessed of fragmentary knowledge, cannot withstand. What all this means superficially is that the Navy Department is a defective administrative mechanism—it provides no adequate device by which subordinate agencies may be made immediately responsive to the will of a central intelligence. ... "Under such conditions," continued Eberstadt, "it is inevitable that the administration of the Navy has been entrusted primarily to the individual bureaus. The supreme civil authority in ordinary times is, in practice, isolated from the real activity of the organization over which he presides. . . At the best, as,, one secretary pointed out he has acted ordinarily as an umpire between the bureau chiefs when they disagree; but it should be added, he has perforce to act as an umpire with no very certain grasp of the rules of the game." Polio Victim Goes To School By Phone (By United Press) A 17-year-old Milford girl c-ip- pled by polio has gone to school without even stepping into the classroom. Ann Louise Altermatt demonstrated going to school by telephone at the annual convention of the- National Society for Crippled Children and Adults in New York.

Ann could hear the teacher and by flicking a switch, she could answer questions which were heard by the teacher in the classroom. Kowalski Given [Hiroshima Post 57 YEARS OF SEEVICE The U.
