Asked for his opinion of Secretary Stevens, the senator replied: "I want to state that there is nothing disloyal about Bob Stevens. He has just been badly misused and misinformed. There is no ill feeling between vis and before the investigation ends I think he'll be better informed."

In Washington, a "U.S. N a v y spokesman retorted, "I never heard of it. I just don't believe it happened. And I certainly would h a v e heard of" it if it had happened."

William Langer Monday insisted the Senate should investigate the "charges" against Earl Warren before confirming him as Chief Justice. An honest man never objects to being investigated," he told a reporter. "There should be a thorough investigation of these 10 charges with witnesses sworn and incredible that in peacetime the U.S.A. should place armed guards on British merchan ships while in port and detail nava cutters to 'shadow' them from one U.S. port to another. But this hap pencd. "The drama was lightened by a comic (ouch when a British ship obligingly reduced speed to enable her U.S. crew to keep station,' the report added. British shippers, the chamber said, had conformed strictly to the United Nations ban against carrying war goods to the Chinese Corn- so on." But Langer's own Judiciary, Committee is expected to turn him down cold. Key members said no'one bul Langer wants to dig into the "charges" any further. They predicted the group will approve the nomination swiftly when it meet: Wednesday. Langer created an uproar last week when he aired the "charges" at a Judiciary Subcommittee hearing. The accusations ranged from a claim . t h a t Warren was "dominated" tiy California liquor lobbyist Arthur H. Samish, to an allegation he followed the "Marxist revolutionary line." Sen. Arthur V. Watkins (R-Utah) called them "wild and irresponsible" and President Eisenhower was moved to issue a statement Saturday, saying Mr. Warren is "one of the finest public servants this country has ever produced.' 1 munists, a n d t h e s y s t e m worked smoothly at first. had Senator Raps Changes in Bricker Plan WASHINGTON -- Sen. Wiley !R-\Vis) Monday denounced as a 'hodge-podge" W h i t e House- approved changes the Senate has voted in a proposed constitutional Bricker to the Senate amendment by Sen. curb treaty powers. Wiley, who heads anc Foreign Relations Committee, said in an interview he believes one change-- to require all past future treaties to be made in suance" of the Constitution ''--'would raise cain in the courts." This proposal, adopted by a 44-43 r ote of the Senate last week, would make all past and future treaties ubject to court review on their constitutionality. It was combined with proposals o require Senate roll-call votes on reaties and a requirement that reaties and other international agreements conform to the .Consti- ution to make up what now is ·cnown as the administration's bill. Wiley, who has opposed any change in the Constitution at this ime, said he hopes this measure -or any other that comes up for a Charles City to Get Food on Wednesday DES MOINES la--Fifteen thousand pounds of butter will be dis tributed .Wednesday to unemployed and needy residents of the Charles City area, C. W. Bangs, who is assisting in the distribution of surplus foods, reported. Bangs, supervisor of the federal school lunch program in Iowa, said :inned beef and gravy arc expected this week and that additional butter and some cheese will be available March 8. Gov. Beardsley said the butter cheduled for Wednesday distribu- .ion'was taken to Charles City last Saturday in National Guard trucks. Bangs said field representatives of the welfare board would confer Tuesday with officials at Charles Mty to explain the distribution sys- :em and make plans for Wednesday's opening. Bangs said a Charles City creamery has agreed to package the surplus butter for distribution. It comes in 60 pound cubes and will be cut down to size. , After 17 counties in the Charles City area are serviced, 16 Iowa counties also are scheduled to receive' surplus. The 16 northwest counties for .vhich the butter-cheese distribu- ion is planned are Lyon, Osceola, Dickinson, Emmet, Sioux, O'Brien, Clay, Palo Alto, Plymouth/Chero- «se, Biiena V i s t a , Pocahgntas, '.Voodbury, Ida, Sac and Calhoun. inal vote in the defeated outright.

Of course, protruding eyes are middling rare, and few of us at The House of Vision have them--hut we make a cult of generosity, all the same! We like to be generous w i t h our time, our energy, our ingenuity, our skill, to give you glasses not merely OK, but oh, wonderful!

In this fact, it seems to me, there's a valuable reminder to all of us that doing good to a neighbor, especially one in distress, isn't confined to the Christian ethic..Its counterpart is to be found in every great religion known to man. And Its highest expression is to be found in the Rcd Cross ideal. .-More than any great cause with which I have been identified down through the years, unless perhaps it be that of helping crippled'chil- dren, the Red Cross is founded on not mere unselfishness but selflessness. To measure up to its claims upon you, you must forget all about you. Perhaps I should amplify this point. "Enlightened Self-Interest" In the safety cause there's N one slogan which has proved more effective, I think, than all others. It's this: "The life you save may be your own." That places the ap peal on a foundation of enlightened self-interest. And that's all right. 1 off on them. Of that I'm quite sure. :,' It's Mora Than Giving · ·.-··', I discover that by spending' so much timer air these more philosophical considerations h a v - ing to do with the Rcd Cross, I haven't l e f t ' t i m e to develop fully this year's financial needs; nationally and locally, or to invite youi In our worship, we stress good for the sake of goodness. But in the background of our subconscious mental processes, this sobering consideration raises its head: "If I live the good life, I'll qualify for an ultimate reward." Or if we want to approach it negatively: "If I live a life of sin, I'll be punished." ing a little soul-searching of my own. You Don't Ask Questions It's all by way of driving home the point that in the Red Cross, you do good without any thought of your bread on the water coming back to you. You give of yourself or of your substance because you are concerned over the suffer- in the business to those in of it--5 cents out of the ,,,,. ·will be set aside for that flood tornado, earthquake or other na tural disaster which may strike without warning. You'd that way. You don't inquire whether .he's of perhaps is of his own foolish making. All these things are second- on their capacity for cold logic and storn realism might be able to prove--at least to themselves--that anything so idealistic is an anachronism in our nuclear fission ra. They could find quite a little i support their position in this. Henri Dunant, the Swiss business man who founded the Red TOSS a little.less than a hundred years ago, /vas most assuredly a starry-eyed dreamer, a full-flow- red visionary. He let his business go to "pot ,while he went up and down the face of the earth promot- ng the idea of world brotherhood. [f he wasn't a pauper when he died, he was the next thing to it. The Clara Barton Spirit The Clara Barton spirit which has permeated the Red Cross in our own country since its inception wasn't anything to recommend it f you're assaying it for cold business inventory purposes. That spirit has motivated the volunteer workers and it has blinded many a Red Cross staff worker to the ireener financial grass in other 'ieids. In the past few years it has fallen to me to visit many communities on a Red Cross mission -- as a volunteer, let me add. If I had ever harbored any doubt that Red oss career people are dedicated o the cause far above and beyond their financial remuneration, such doubts would have been erased long before this. ' Practically every sizable community I've visited is the home of at least one former Rcd Cross staffer, often but not always a lousevvife. And that person is now doing some important service in the local Red Cross chapter as a volunteer worker. They're serving not because they MUST--but because they MAY. This, I /irmly contend, just wouldn't be the case in people not sold on ^their product. Quite a little of that idealism of old Henri Dunant and Clara Barton has brushed status. We're back to the early day pattern of JOINING the Red Cross and being an active partner in its work--not merciy GIVING to the Red Cross. two goals--one no more im porlant.than the other--are 30 million members and $85 million dollars. If the financial goal is to be reached, tho average contribution per member must be about ?3, But you know how it is--there will be some who either don't or can'l give that much.

(UP)-Thirty-five; explorers who s p e n t five days probing the inky blackness of Crystal Cave believe their expedition was a complete success. The group, which included geologists, biologists, botanists and other scientists, discovered two new waterfalls, canyons estimated to be 100 feet deep and heard the roar oC an undcrgrpund river. The geologists in the exploring party said the cave probably is I h'e world's longest. Heretofore, nearby M a m m o t h Cave was regarded as the longest in the world. The iasl of the party crawled through the quarter mile passage way known as Scolman's Trap into Ihc light of day Saturday. During Ihc five-day underground sojourn the only light the explorers had was the dim light of lamps and flashlights. .
