Washintjton~-WhlJe Adm. Forrest Sherman has been doing a valiant job of whipping recalcitrant admirals on to the iinlflniillon team, Homo of tliom have never rorK^ltun their first conference with the new bccretary of derennc. The admirals find comn into LoulH Johnson'H office to brief him or. their budgetary needs, and gave him a long, solemn-faced recitation of how many men they required in caHe of war, how much money, how many shipyard^ how many civilian workers In thone shipyard.-*. Johnson listened carefully, but finally interrupted. "Gentlemen," he said, "If we followed this program-we would have j. budget of fifty billions for the Navy alone. Furthermore, there would be no men left for the other tervlces and none fo the civlllnn needs of the rest of the country." Johnson's voice was unruffled, completely friendly, but decisive. "You are wasting my time,' he continued, "and your own time — until you can come In with a reasonable proposal. You've got to coordinate with all the armed services. Please get together with them before you come in here again." To mollify the admirals, John.-ion added that the Air Force or the Army could have made the came mistake of shooting too high. But his diplomacy made no difference. The Navy delegation filed out -of his office red-faced and furlouj. They have never forgotten Johnson and probably never will. Air Junknt Spoiled Apologlen to CongrcHsman Victor Wickei'Hham of Oklahoma and Tom Fugate of Virginia. It. looks as If this column has spoiled their nir junket through South America Everything was all set for the»c two gentlemen to take a private Air Force piano from country to country through Latin America. In fact, Chairman Schuyler Bland of the House Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committee had even sworn that the trip was in the interest of national defense Ho hod to do thlH If they were to gel „ free plane. However, once their junket pli.ns wore cxpoHed in this column Congressman WIckcrsham announced •ho wasn't going and Congrcssmun Fugate agreed to take a regularly scheduled military transport plan.. lu Panama, then fly commercial airlines the real of the way Note — Though Fugatc's trip won t be as costly as having a private Air Foce pl Hnn to chauffeur him nround, the toxpaynrn must still pay for . h | H vacation Doctors Vs. Health Insuranco It looks like the American M.-rt- ical Association was heading bark •coward the dark ages. Most people AMA r a , !ize "' but in 191 6 the AMA took a much more cnl'glit- oned v| cw O f the nation's health uian n« current all-out r'rchl npalnst a national health program Back !„ 1918. the AMA's hou ,,o of delegates actually wont on i ,-r- *." ai> '' rovin « Jf'Jvernment insurance. They even pns'.cd a resolution submitted by their judicial council which referred to government health insurance -is cne of the forces tending to human betterment." Today the 1-n- guage of that resoluion would prob'-" ably bo regarded by the AMA as downright dangerous to the American way of life.

He added that he addressed 7,000,000 persona at Democratic rallies and "about 15,000,000 people saw me" during the campaign.

"My St. Paul audience was one of the most enthusiastic I ever addressed," said the President "Bill Hussctt (White House secreary) told me we might to bottle it up find take It niong with us." John R.

It's comparatively simple to plan a more companionable landscape for the dormant season---and one that's fine when foliage is In full glory, too M. W. Staples, field supervisor of the Duvey Tree Expert Co.. ad- vlsfts there's tt wldo range of trees nnd shrubs from which to select your color scheme. For Instance, the Japanese maple has red twigs; the silky dogwood, purple; the Scotch pine, salmon-colored hark on the upper trunk and branches; the sycamore or planetrce, pooling bark that ex- POSCH inner hi.rk of bright yellow; birch, grayish white bark and the flowering plum bark of a pronounced black on older branches The green-twig dogwood in colorful, while the twigs of the rcdosler dogwood are a deep red nnd those of the purpleosicr willow, a good ornamental reddish-purple Color isn't the only important factor in improving the scenery the expert adds. Trees also should be planted for shape and tracery of silhouettes against the sky Particularly beautiful in this respect are the maples. When biting cold keeps -the family indoors, tree and shrub friends do a lot. to cheer with their placid and solid beauty.
