Conn. Newipaper Publlrtxm AM'B MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14. 1949 Poles' New Commander According to the official announcement. the Polish government took the initiative that has given Poland a new minister of defense and supreme commander in the person of Soviet Marshal Konstanttn Rokoasovsky. President Blerut aaked the Russian government to make Marshal Rokossovsky available for this assignment, so the announcement said, because Rokossovsky "is a Pole and very popular with the Polish nation." Whereupon Moscow granted this request. But no one is under compulsion to believe that Bierut thought up thia Idea all by himself. That is hardly likely. As a rule, a chief of state needs considerable prompting before he comes to believe that his country needs a general from another country to run his defense establishment. His countrymen are not likely to be enthusiastic over such Innovations and they may make trouble. Rokossovsky is a great soldier, unquestionably. Poland is in his debt, it might be said, because he commanded the Russian armies that drove out the Germans. As a Pole, he will be more acceptable to other Poles than any Russian could be. But he will not be a Pole first and something else — Soviet citizen or communist — second. He will take his orders ;"rom Moscow. '; The fact, is that the Politburo rneans to take no chances it can : void. It wants no more Titos in the Russian satellite nations rnd it U taking; whatever measures seem best to prevent such nn eventuation. In Poland, apparently, a Soviet general is needed to head the armed forces of t'.-.e Polish state. Rokossovsky is the man for the job. Whether the Polish people like i; or not, this is what they are t-j get. It is immaterial to the r. .isslans whether they achieve domination of Poland openly or otherwise, so long as they achieve Frankenstein Tethered There's some hope for poor r ortals who go in for making i .achines that have a tendency t .ward overcoming them In .the f :id. Take that automatic tit-tat; ;e machine with an exceedingly :.lce understanding of human nature. It is possible to play the ! umble game of tit-tat-toe with '.his latest electronic contribution 13 this gadget-minded world. This machine permits the operator to start the tit-tat-toe game but then it' beats him every time or draws the game. That in itself seem* absolutely futile—to build a machine that licks you every time you push a button. But, as we say, there's hope. This particular machine has another switch. You pull it and then if you're really a skillful player, you can beat it—at tit-tat-toe. Thia in itself makes for a sort of equality between the human brain and the automatic brain. What's more, you can slow this machine to five seconds a move so that if you are the pondering tit-tat-toe type you can keep up with the automaton. The next step is for some- one to build a device tha,t can play chess or possibly checkers—with varying speeds to suit the temperament of the player. The point we make is simply this: We really don't have to be slaves of the machine. We can make it work for us—in recreation as well as La industry. Stuck With A Dam Protests by landowners which have followed practically every dam project in the West can hardly be taken as indorsements of this phase of government spending. Latest controversy is over a dam and irrigation project in Ellis and Trego counties, Kansas, now under construction. Signers of .the petition are trying to have 'their names removed or. the ground that the cost of $21,000,000 is exorbitant, and the project is not feasible or economic. But the chWf engineer of the division of water resources of the Kansas State 'Board of Agriculture has ruled their names cannot be removed unless it can be shown that fraud is involved. Sixty-five farmers, many of whom live on the land involved, declared they have changed their minds since learning what the project will cost. A majority had signed the original petition for the dam. But the project has been officially approved, and landowners are stuck with it. Good Example While scores of economy- preaching members of Congress go junketing about over the face of the earth on taxpayers' money, thereby adding to the government deficit, Rep. E. H. Rccs of Kansas is giving a demonstration of how an economy-minded member of Congress should act. Recs is going to Europe to inform himself on conditions there. But he Is going on his own money. He will scout around that continent In an efofrt to learn what the situation Is that takes so much of the time of Congress and of the people's money. This is a drop In the bucket compared to the $42.000,000,000 Washington is dishing out annually. But it signifies an interest in the welfare of the country. If some other members of Congress would give similar evidence of concern for economy, this country would have far more assurance of a balanced budget. Before long the price of coffee may keep people awake. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Mrs. Adolph Kudzma, New Haven road, was- elected lectur er of Beacon Valley Grange.

Q. When accompanying two women along a street, where should the man place himself? A. He should not sandwich himself between them, but take the outside of the walk, the same as with one woman. Q. Should the knife be used to put the butter on a baked potato? A. No; it is better to use the fork.

Nardello of City Hill street, recently entertained at a family party In honor of their daughter, Linda Ann, who celebrated her fourth birthday. ARMISTICE DAY-WHEN? Spec/a/ to Central Press W ASHINGTON—States Rights Southern Democrats arc rallying behind former Secretary of State Jamca F Byrnes for a drive to seize political control of the entire south. After J Strom Thurmond captured only four southern states In the 1948 presidential election, the States Rights movement was somewhat deflated. There was even talk of letting it become quiescent and concentrating once again on an attempt to wield influence inside the Democratic Party Then came President Truman's renewed civil rights drive to throw the States Righters into open rebellion again Finally. Byrnes announced he would actively enter the campaign for the governorship of South Carolina on a States Rights platform. The States now plan to mobilize behind the vast national prestige of Byrnes and organize to carry every southern state in 1952. They feel that if they can do this they can pretty well determine the outcome of any close election. " James F Byrnes * * * * • UNFINISHED BUSINESS—Forgotten in the congressional adjournment rush was White House and Senate action on what defense leaders regard a key post to be filled in the defense set-up—chairmanship of the National Security Resources Board The Senate armed services committee bottled up the nomination last spring of Mon C. Wallgren until Wailgrcn finally asked Prcsl- dent Truman to withdraw his name. Afterwards Mr Truman disclosed that Russia had achieved an "atomic explosion"—hard evidence that it has the A-bomb. However, when Congress went home the NSRB post was still vacant Mr Truman apparently had been unable to And a man for the job even though NSRB has basic responsibility for planning utilization of the nation's manpower and material resources in case of war. * « * * • GABRIELSON SUUPRISES-Vcteran Republican strategists who were rather lukewarm toward George Guy Gabriclson when he was named GOP national chairman are surprised at the manner In which he has taken over his job. Gabnelson's mtra-party opponents now admit that he shows a remarkable eye for publicity—which both major political parties choose to call public relations. Gabriclson, for example, pulled no punches when he stepped into the hot New York senatorial campaign between Republican John Foster Dulles and Democrat Herbert H. Lehman. He personally challenged President Truman to stump the state for Lehman-saying it would clarify the issues. That, the most seasoned Republicans quickly admitted was a "'""""'" ~" K "" statement that they believe will win votes for the Connolly For V«lo In 1945 • CONNALLY DEMONSTRATION RKCALLED-A stream of foreign diplomats shook his hand when Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Tom Connally visited United Nations headquarters recently Many explained they remember him from a speech he made some four years ago when the UN was founded in San Francisco. tw retention of the veto.

With'that I tore the papers into bits, scattered them, and said, 'This is what you'll have nnd sat down. ' "I guess they remembered that little demonstration." Since then Russia's constant use of the veto has convinced Con- Jlly it should be abolished except for decision on use of armed force.
