Tie seems to think, now that President Eisenhower lias fired him, that he talked himself out of a job. lie said recently that in the two years since he resigned as d e a n ' of the Notre Dame University Law! School he has been in every .slate' making speeches to so m a n y b n s i - j ness groups "I have called t h e ' roll of American industry." Last Sept. 4, Elsenhower picked the 57-year-old Manion as chairman of the i m p o r t a n t Commission! on Intergovernmental Ilclalions. j Six months later Manion announced' the White House had sacked him. Public Speeches »Thc White House gave no reason., Manion implied it was because he! had made public speeches support-! ing the Bricker amendment on treaties, which Eisenhower op-i posed. The President said it would! tie his hands in foreign affairs. Sen. Bricker (R-Ohio) proposed e constitutional amendment toj limit the scope of treaties so they] don't override powers reserved to the states and to give Congress power to regulate other international executive agreements. Manion is a crusader for decentralized government and more self-reliance on the part of the states. And Jn the field of foreign affairs he has strong convictions which may seem unique to Eisenhower in handling Communists. Marx Disciples Although Russian and the Chinese Communists, as disciples of Karl Marx, operate on the theory the United States and other capitalist countries are doomed, Man- Jon, in his 1050 book, "The Key to Peace," suggested: "Those in charge of our national defense must be made to realize that if the fascinating American story is made plain to our actual! and potential enemies military opposition will liquidate itself in the wild scramble to follow the American example." In that same book, although much of it was devoted to praising the Founding Fathers for their extraordinary wisdom in putting the Constitution together, Manion showed some displeasure with the Constitution as it is. Change Urged He not only urged changing it by adding on the Bricker amendment but also another amendment which would .limit the power of Congress to spend money. .While Manion seemed to think his advocacy of the Bricker proposal cost him his job, Sen. Aiken (Jt-Vt) said from what he had heard of Manion, "I'm afraid he was too conservative to be of value to this administration." Other Republicans in the Senate bitterly criticized the firing, and one member of the commission quit in protest. This was Rep. Noah Mason (R-lll). The 25-man com,mission was composed of five s e n a t o r s , five representatives, some government agency heads, and distinguished citizens. Manion Criticized In addition to speculation about his. views, Manion has been criticized for spending too much time speechmaking in general and not enough in the hcndrjuarlers of his commission. The government hands over to the states yearly $2,800,000,000 in aid to 22 programs covering such fields as public health, highways, education, housing. The commission was supposed to /ind out w h o r e federal-slate duplication could be avoided and some aid dropped. Although tbo cominisison was Bupposed to f i n i s h its work by March 1, its last three members weren't sworn in until Nov. 20, hardly i time for such a huge job. It's going to nsk for another year's time before reporting; ;KINDERGARTEN OPENS FERTILE--Kindergarten classes opened this week with nil day sessions. There were 20 beginners enrolled.
