PACK 3—NAUGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), TUESDAY, NOV. 15, l!Mi) DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Both-Sides-Of-Fence Sheridan Downey, Losing Respect Of Californians, Campaigns Desperately In Primary Against Helen Douglas To Retain Senate Seat; Mrs. Nimitz Laughs, Admiral Chuckles At "Deflation." Los Angeles.—-John Kennedy, live- wire publisher of the San Diego Journal, recently took a man-in-the- strcet poll as to who represented California in the U. S. Senate. After some hesitation most of those polled were able to remember the name of Republican William Knowland, who has been in office less than a full term, but almost none was able to remember the name of California's senior senator. Sheridan Downey, now rounding out his 12th year in the Senate. The political object lesson to be derived from Downey's anonymity is you can't be on every side of every issue and still keep the people's interest and respect. In 1938 Sheridan Downey was elected as a new and flaming Liberal. He promised them what they wanted and they believed him. Becomes Senate "Mute" Once elected, Mr. Downey went to Washington in a blaze of promises and expectations and simply sat. He took no vigorous stand on any issue. And it was only after many years as a Senate "mute" that the much - heralded gentleman from Southern California finally got active. Believe it or not, his activity was then cast on the side of those v/ho originally tried to defeat him. Sheridan, for strange reasons best known to himself, came out on the side of the big ranchers and the big utilities. Some attributed this weird about- face to his brother, an astute attorney who represents some of the big boys. Others attributed it to the idea that Sheridan knew Truman was sure to fail of re-election in 1948. so he, Sheridan, planned to bow out of the Senate and start practicing law for some of the big boys himself. At any rate, the senator from California became a more rabid spokesman for the big land owners than anyone else in the Senate, even publishing a luxurious book on reclamation which had little sale and which could not have been financed very easily from a senator's salary. Threatened To Block Adjournment Most people didn't know it but, at the wind-up of Congress last month. Downey threatened to block adjournment with a filibuster if the Senate voted salaries to his twin enemies. Reclamation BUCKMILLER Funeral Home 22 PARK PLACE Telephone 4334 For The Best In Jewelry C.H.Tomlinsonl Neary Bnlldlnr Kangatuck, Conn. Commissioner . Mike Straus and Regional Deputy Richard Boke. For some time Downey has intimated that Commissioner Straus should not enforce the 160-acre limitation on land irrigated by t.he federal government. Unable to get Congr&ss to abandon the 160-acre limitation, Downey didn't want the law enforced. And when Straus and Boke insisted on enforcement .he succeeded in sneaking a rider through the llepublican-controlled 80th Congress cutting off their salaries. Later, the Democratic Klst Congress put back the salaries and even voted to restore flve months back pay. And it was that caused Sheridan to gnash his teeth and threaten 8. filibuster. Downey made such fierce and ferocious noises that kindly Senator Carl Hayden o frizona, in at closed-door conference of Senate and House committees .begged that the sal ary issue be postponed until Jan uary. "If not, Downey will filibuster and keep us here for weeks," Hayden urged. "You don't know Downey,' snorted Congressman MiJce Kirwan of Youngstown, Ohio. "He (hasn't got the guts. He talks big but runs out when you say boo a1 him. The Supreme Court," continued Kirwan, "has already held in the cases of LoVelt, Dodd and Watson, that these back salaries •are .payable.' We also have a lega opinion from Lindsay Warren, the controller general, telling us that Straus and Boke have an even stronger case. I, for one, refuse to be bluffed by Sheridan Downey.' Congressman Kirwan was right The conference committee restored the 'back salaries of Downey's mortal enemies, and the senator from California did not filibuster. Desperate For Re-election Today, Senator Downey has changed his mind again, has decided there's life in the Democratic party yet, and is running for reelection. In fact, he's running desperately. His opponent is one of the ablest members of Congress Mrs. Helen Gahagan Douglas. And Sheridan knows that tfrJti time he can't count on the oldsters, the small farmers and labor. He can count on thousands ol dollars of campaign contributions from the utilities and the big- ranchers. But that will be in the primary. For if Downey by some miracle squeaks through the primary, the Big Boys will vote against him in the- final election and .for a Republican. For they, like so many others, in California, have no respect for both-sides-offence Sheridan Downey. "Who Are You, Anyway?" . A Manhattan urchin tugged at the gold-braided sleeve of Flee Admiral Chester W. Nimitz. as he and Mrs. Nimitz were emerging from a church service on Fiftt Avenue. "Hey, Mister," said tjie kid, "give me your autograph?" And he held out a bit of paper. Nimitz was willing. "Have you got a pencil?" he asked. The boy begged a pencil from a bystander, and the one-time commander-in-chief of the Pacific fleet using Mrs. Nimitz's hand-bag to write on, produced his signature. But as Nimitz started to move on, the boy said, "Hey, Mister, who are you, anyway?" The Admiral chuckled; Mrs. Nimitz laughed. "There," she said, "there's one for your ego " NEW YORK YOFTIMI asSftW?

(International) Holiday Turkey Dinner Expense Drops This Year The high price of the turkey dinner many a year has* spoiled its taste for Ihe head of the household on Thanksgiving Day. But this year, pop can dig in with the rest of the family without worrying too much about the expense. The United Press took a look at prices in 20 large cities as against last year's tabs. What the survey found should bring joy to pop's heart. A Thanksgiving dinner for a family of four, including a 10-pound turkey, will be almost $1.50 cheaper than last year. Turkeys are down more than 12 cents a pound. Sweet potatoes are a cent lower a pound for the same quantity. Cranberries are cheaper. So is celery asparagus, white bread, assorted nuts, table grapes. Pumpkins are more expensive though, because farmers cut production !n protest against the low prices they go I for them last year. Merchants say prices may evon tumble lower before the family sits down to gorge itself on turkey and all the trimmings. The only drawback is for movn who has to pepare the gobbler. Secretary Earl Mason of the Iowa Turkey Federation says the gobblers "will have more pin-feathers this year, because a warm autumn delayed their development.

C., Nov. 14—Texas Eastern Transmission Corporation today asked the Federal Power Commission for authority to construct additional pipe line facilities to serve utilities in the New England area with as much as 200,000,000 cubic feet of natural gas per day by 1951, The owner of the Big and Little Big Inch pipe line system filed its request by amendment to a previous application of March 10, 1948, ; In which it originally made known its desire to acrve New England. Texas Eastern proposed in today's amendment to serve the New England area by transporting up to 45 billion cubic feet per year from its compressor station near Lebanon, Ohio, as far as Concor.i, N. H., through a new pipe line. The new line would "loop", or parallel, with 30-inch pipe, the' existing Inch Lines from Lebanon to Connellsville, Pfe. from that point the existing Inch Lines would be used for the transportation of additional gas to Lambertville, N. J. An .additional 49,200 compressor horsepower would be installed on the system. From Lambertville, a new 26-inch line would be built to utility systems in Greenwich, Bridgeport, Norwalk, Derby New Haven, Hartford, Waterbury and Naugatuck Conn.; Springfield, Hoi- yoke, Worcester, Boston, New Bedford, Plymouth, Brockton Lowell j and Lawrence Mass.; Providence, R. I.; Manchester. Concord and Nashua, N. H.; and possibly other communities in the area. "Texas Eastern is eager to serve the New England area," R. H. Hargrove, president of Texas Eastern, said. "We feel that the character of our service and out rates will be attractive to utilities and customers in the New England states." Mr. Hargrove added that further details of this project would also be announced at the hearing*. Texas Eastern's daily sales capacity will be increased from its presently authorized 740,000.000 cubic feet per day to 940,000,000 if the Company's application is granted.
