S'AGE 2—NAUGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), MONDAY, NOV. 14, 1949 DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Earl Warren Is Only Republican Who Can Win In California Next Fall; Congressman Wickersham Junkets Again; Henry Wallace And Brigham Young Compete For "Hall Of Fame" Los Angeles—There is one lesson eastern Republicans learned from last week's big Democratic victories which still hasn't percolated to hardheaded California Repulicans—namely, the fact that the grand old party is not going to romp back into power with old-fashioned, pre-New Deal candidates. Even in rock-ribbed Republican Philadelphia which hasn't let a Democrat get a toe hold in its government for half a century, ^Progressive Democrats stag«d a significant victory. -And in New York city the Republicans did not poll even 25 per cent oj the vote. Hero in California, however, the old-line GOPEERS are still daydreaming about unseating gressive Republican Gov. Pro- Earl Warren and running a conservative instead. Republican big business considers Warren too liberal, too friendly to labor, too sympathetic to the old people of California. What they don't realize is that Warren was elected chiefly because he has swung Democratic and borderline voters. And today, with Jimmy Roosevelt's winning smHe already rolling un> a big popular following, no. Republican would have a chance in next fall's race except Earl gubernatorial Warren. As a further result of last week's eastern defeats. GOP leaders are wondering more and more whether they won't have to pick either General Eisenhower or Gov. Warren if they want to win the White House in 1952. They know they couldn't control Warren once he got in the White House. But they also know that he. has consistently won huge block? of Democratic and labor votes, and they are beginning to realize that perhaps that is the only way they can ever get the Grand Old Party back in the saddle NOTE 1—New Jersey's Governor Alfred Driscoll, one oifthefew Republicans re-elected last week, is a hard-working progressive frequently at odds with reactionary leaders of his party. NOTE 2—General Eisenhower, still a great and glamorous figure may be politically tarnished by 1952. By that time, with more tax money paid out for armament a lot of people may be taking seriously Ike's advice that no military man should run for president Junketing Congressman Back in 1945 genial Congressman Victor Wickersham, Oklahoma Democrat, swore never to take an- other airplane junket—after Speaker Rayburn asked him to pay out of his own pockpt for an unauthorized trip to Moscow. In ' the end, the taxpayers paid the bill—just as they will also pay the bill for another vacation-by-air for the same congressman this year. For, despite Wickersham 1 .; vehement vow not to take another free air ride, he has just returned from an air junket to Alaska. What's more, his name has been submitted for another free air trip to South America. This year Wickersham is traveling under the auspices of the House Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committee, which has littja official interest in Alaska and even less in South America. Under new regulations, Congress must certify that a trip is in the interest of national defense before p congressman can obtain a free Air Force plane. Nevertheless Virginia's Schuyler Bland, chairman | of the Marine and Fisheries Committee, has stated in a formal letter that it is necessary to national defense foij Wickersham to fly around South America. His Junket -will require a special plane just to chauffer Wickersham from country to country. Only one other passenger is listed for the trip—Congressman Tom Fugate of TAKE HOME Fresh Pastry and Cream Pies from | ANDY'S CAMPUS CHURCH ST.

Note — Apparently Wickersham has now forgotten how he nearly had to pay the bill for the military plane that flew him to Moscow in 1P45. When he returned, he gave Congress a lengthy report ana Speaker Sam Rayburn a wrist watch. This didn't appease Sam. however. He said the trip wasn't authorized and that Wickersham would have to pay his own fare, though after a personal call by Wickersham to President Truman in Potsdam and a rumpus on the floor of the house, the taxpayers linally paid the bill. Henry Wallace Vs. Brigham Yotmg A backstage controversy is raging over the location of two statues that must be mounted in the cap- iol building—Brigham Young and Henry Wallace. Brigham Young, the famed Mormon pioneer, is Utah's candidate for the Hall of Fame. In Salt I^ake City, he stands—cast in bronze— in the .middle of Main street. Some of his disciples believe he should occupy just as prominent a spot in the nation's capitol, though ore or two people in Washington poin r , out that he will be the only hero in the Hall of Fame who reputedly had 21 wives. Occupation authorities have introduced to Japan compulsory education through the ninth grade.
