K a~NAEOATl;CK NP.WH <CONN.). SATUBIMV, nKC. 3, linn DREW PEARSON ON "fhe WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Negro Congressman Dawson's Apointment To Democratic National Committee Has Interesting Background; President Truman Admires Austrian Art; Secretaries Acheson And Brannan Oppose World Food Bank. Washington — Very quietly this week, a negro was made vice- chairman of the party which once went to war over the issue of slavery. The negro is Congressman William Dawson of Chicago, and the man -whose place he is tailing- as vice-chairman of the Democratic ceptions, but Powell, whose wife Truman dislikes, is not. Guarding Austrian Art A guard of 115 men stand watch over the rare Austrian Art collection on display at the National Art Gallery during the daytime. Twenty more plus a squadron of mili- * n,*r-^no.«i \u cue A-'emourauc ty more pius a squadron or mili- Tv'ational Committee is boss Frank ! tary police stand watch on Salur- " Hague of Jersey City. The change was engineered by Democratic National Chairman William Boyle and has an interesting background. 'ihe vice-chairmanship of the Democrataic National Committee Long was held by Mayor Ed Kelly of Chicago. Kelly, an active Roosevelt man. made the position important. After his retirement as Mayor, the vice-chairmanship went to Boss Hague of New Jersey, who last mont suffered a crushing defeat. At that time Hague announced that he -was ready to resign as vice-chairman of the committee, and Bill Boyle expressed the hope privately that he would. "I'd grab his resignation in a minute," Boyle told friends. This week Boyle acted. William Dawson, long a Democratic member of Congress from Chicago January was the first negro Congressman tr» become chariman of a Congressional Committee. As head of the House Expenditures Committee he has got along well ( with broad-minded Representatives Hardy of Virginia, Lanham or o-eorgia and Bonner of No-*h Carolina. So Chairman Boyle quietly elevated him to the vice- chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee. GOP And Colored Vote Even more interesting is the political background behind Dawson s appointment. The Chicago district which sends •Jim to Congress used to be Republican. And during the Herbert Hoover landslide in 1928, it sent Oscar De Priest, negro Reputu- n^.» ", Consrress — ^e first negro elated to that body in n may .ears. Result was a hue and cry 'r.,^ Washington society, includ- -" man >" Republicans, that Con- fSJ™, 1 * Priest »*ould not S, invited to. the regular White «ou se reception which the Presi- f Con- rrosidcnt Hoover did not take ^ nr '? t Mand °" the ?r"tei .°h r ", v" Prle » t W £ T?- ' ne deb-'te hurt the GOP's standing with the big-city nesrro populations.

President Truman was so taken by the collection during a private viewing that he remained for an hour and a half, admiring the quaint old antiques, carved ivories, suits of armor, and the Celleini salt cellar. However, the President v.-as most imipressed by the paintings, particularly one of Rembrandt's self-portraits. World Food Bank There has been a lot of backstage cabinet debate over the UN Food and Agricultural organization's plan to feed the world's needy areas from U. S. farm surpluses. Though Preseident Truman has given his official blessing, his Secretary of State and Secretary of Agriculture are definitely against it. They are not opposed to the principle of feeding the hungry, but to the cost and machinery involved. What the FAO advocates is on International Clearinghouse where surplus commodities could be gathered Then distribution tc impoverished nations. Secretary Ac-heson's opposition to this idea has been well known, but it was thought Secretary Brannan was opposed to him. However, he U not. Their joint opposition is based on the fact l that. a world food clearinghouse would cost an estimated five billon dollars," to be divided . among nations according to their national income, which would mean Uncle Sam would foot about half the bill. In other words, it would cost Uncle Sam about 500 Million dollars the first year to give away only 360 million dollars worth of surpluses. Therefore Acheson and Brannan argue that it would be cheaper just to give away the surpluses They are sure Congress will think Vin Drake, Gnaizdowski Pace Highlanders To 47-39 Victory Goodwin Announces Lineup For N.H.S.

Locals Score Second Major Upset In Week The Naugatuck Highlanders stepped into the role of giant killers for the second time in a week last night, to upset a favored Tor- nngton Triangles team, 47-39 on the YMCA court. The locals took the lead early in the first period and maintained an edge the rest of the way. Vinnie Drake, former Ansonia High School star, appeared in the locals' lineup and turned in the too scoring effort of the night, tally- Ing 13 points. He also played a whale of a floor game and turning in a remarkable performance under the baskets. Drake and Sonny Gnaizwoksi scored seven points between them tc, boost the Highlanders into a 10-5 lead at he close of the first period. The Triangles began hitting in the second period, with Hubino and Ponsi accounting for 10 points, and although they'out- scored the Highlanders, 12-10, the 20-17 lead at intermission. Drake and, Gnaizdowski aprain Ijaced the locals in the third period, scoring six points each, as the Highlanders turned on the steam and opened a nine-point gap, leading 37-28 at the close of the frame. Sokolik and Carmigani accounted for seven of Torrington's 11 po'nts Bally The Triangles made a determined effort to pull the game out of the fire in the final period. With Sokolik and Jinx Ongelia doins? mos of the scoring, they pulled ta within five points,, at 40-35, at the automatic time. That was the closest they got, however, for in the final three minutes Jack Quint dumped in five points and Vin Healy two to stifle the threat. The Highlanders had 16 personal fouls called against them to 21 for the Triangles. The locals made good on 13 of 25 foul tries and Torrington 13 out of 19. The game was witnessed by 175 fans. Drake was high scorer for the Highlanders with 13 points on five baskets and three foul conversions. Gnaizdowski contributed 11 and Vi n Healy eight. For the Triangles Ongelia scored nine, Sam Ponzi eight. Rubion eight and Sokolik seven.

Weiss told a news conference today: "We're not standing pat. There Is one very big plum we'd like to pick, a real starting pitcher. And I mean real spelled with a capital 'R'. Weiss says the Yankees have •talked trade with six other majot league clubs. He refused to say which team the Yankees ignored, but .Is obviously is the Boston Red Sox. It is difficult seeing either team willing to strengthen the other in view of their near photo- finish last year. Weiss went on to say that any trades with other than for a pitcher v/ould be to get nil-ins in event some of the aging Yankee ,*tars need help. "If you count Tommy Hcnrich .-is an outfielder," says Weiss, "Weve got four outfielders on our roster who are 35 or over. We're not going to put anybody ahead of Henrich or Joe DiMaggio, but we're always o.i the lookout for good men to spell these fellows if they tir e or get injured." ccoa'.btc Weiss claims Johnny Mize the big first baseman the Yankees bought from the New York Giant late last season, will be given every chance to win a regular job "His shoulder injury," says Weisa, 'should be healed.

State Round Out Top Three In Area Boston, Mass., Dec. 3 (UP) — New England's basketball spotlight is focused on Holy Cross, Yale and Rhode Island State college, but experts predict they won't take any national honors. These three loom as the tiny region's hoop powerhouses this season. Hoiy Cross is rated strongest of the 60 teams in New England. This d'espite the fact the Crusaders last such veterans as George Kaftan, Dcnnie O'Connell and Joe Mulla- ncy, all of whom .turned professional. The team will be built around crafty Bab Cousy, a passing and shooting wizard who es- i tajblished a Holy Cross scoring ] record last season. Promising So-. homores make coach Lester Sheary less fearful of a rugged 28-game schedule. Yale is in Efflproximately the same position. While they lost the nation's leading scorer, in accordli- on-playing Tony Lavclli, the defending district one NCAA cham- . pions will have a squad that is i "faster than the championship team of last year." That's'the report of.Coach • Howard Hobson. B. I. State Rhode Island State, with a schedule only sligthly easier than that of Holy Cross, figures to repeat last year's 16-6 record. At the little Rhode college, basketball is a. specialty. But, director of basketball Bill Mokray of Boston Garden says all these topnotch teams of the cix- state region will be weaker than last year. And he expects none to withstand regional playoffs. He says the outlook is-only fair. It will make for evenly-matched' , but I don't think any team in New England could go far against some of those midwestorn teams." Other teams in the area with schedules of major proportions are weaker than the Holy Cross-Yalo- Rhode Island trio. Best of these is Boston college, "vastly improved" over last year. Dartmouth, once the scourge of the courts, will be weaker than last season owing to the losa of high-scoring forward Ed Leede Coaih Elrner Lampe says he'll he lucky if he wins "half the games we play." New coach Norman Shcpard of Harvard says his team will be imp-roved" but expresses little optimism. He has almost the same team that lost 20 of 23 games last year, including 18 in a row.
