FAGK a—NAUGATUCK NEWS (CONN.). WEI>NKSDAV. DEC. 7, IMn DREW~PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Welfare Fund Trustees Try To Outsputter Each Other; Canada Is Irate Over U. 8. Court's Decree On Air Treaties; The Story Of Gov. Polsom's Socks. \Vashinpton — Two men with nristlinpr r-yobrows glowered, snori.- ul and shouted at each other )aet •.vi'ok when tho miners' welfare lund trustees met behind closed floors. They were John \->. Lewis nr.d Churlcts Daw.non. cx-fedcnil jiidK" of Louisville, Ky., representing the operatoru. In the middle sat Senator Styles T-.riclKcH of New HaznpBhire, neutral tru.sUH'. CblliiiK the meeting to order, Lewis announced: "The people j>rrncnt today nrn Truutce Bridges, Trustee Lewis and Interlopor Dttw- fon." Then Dnwaon tried to present hi:- credentials, nnd Bridges moved n> accept them. But Lewis rapped the table and called the roll. He Lpnt out a Burly "No"; Bridges voted "Yes." Diiwson clamored to vote. but Lewis cut him off. Thi.s same routine- was repeated over every question that came up. Kach time Dawson demanded to vote, and each time Lewis rcfiiHCd tt; recognize him. Lewis called him a "rank out- fcider,' only by "Buffer-) ance." Dawson shouted back IIIH i-Kb' to be heard. Finally the meeting adjourned. Nothing was PCcnmpli.shcd. except that the two bushy-browed trustee.s were still tputterinR at each other. t Illegal Air Treaties It was buried in the financial section of the big city newspapers, but one of the most important court decisions affecting the treaty-making power of the Stale V<T>artment was handed down !ast week. Aa a result our relations with Canada are In a dither. U. S. Judges Jim Proctor and Alan GoldsboroiiRh were the t.w.> judges who had the courage to challenge the right of the Sratc iJepartment to negotiate execurivc HM'pementH with another country without ratification by the Senate. To date the State Department has negotiated 38 air treaties without paying any attention to the Constitution of the United Status which requires treaties with for- i '.-;n countries to be ratified by a f.v;>-thirds Senate vote. N'ow. for (the fir?4 time, the '•Mirts have cnlled a stop. Walk: tnr court decree did not actuiil'y [ic.'.s on the merits of the is-sue, u:ui -i. tually passed the question ;ir. 10 th" Supreme Court, ncv>ir- t::f'es_s Canada is already up in V.'hnt brought the issue to ;i flirjiax. when Colonial Air Lines, u vma'.l company with a 9-voar record without a fatality, j;ot tir.-d of being kicked around. 'j he State Department had s'.van Canada a route parallel to Colonial's, from Montreal to New York, while simultaneously denying Colonial the right to fly to Washington. So Colonial challenged the Stain Department's power to negotiate a treaty without Senate ratification. In retaliation. Canada is now ;;o irate that it has served Colonial with notice to show cause whv it siir.uld not be closed down on r.he Montreal route after Dec. 12. What the issue partly boils dv>w/> t-> i.s that the big air lines nrc .•'ble to hire top cabinet-level lob- t;-ii-ts to protect their interests when State Department executive i-yrcements are being written. American Airlines, for instance, re-tains as its attorney, the son-in- law of Secretary of State Aclie- .son; while Pan American, Ion? ie- tiiined Louis Johnson, now secretary of national defense. The little companies, able to afford no :such lobbying luxury, have to fall bock on tho Constitution of the Unl'eJ States. "Socklesn" .Tim Foldom It has never been told before how "Ki.SHln Jim"—Alabama's fiib- uloua Governor James E. Folsom almost become known uu "BOCKUVK Jim" Except for the delicate lnten.'rn- Hlon of a thoughtrul Mobile p.ilj- llrhor; tho Alabama tihlof excon- tive might still be living down a front page reputation as the "barefoot governor with shoes on." The trouble was that Jim's foot were so big ho couldn't find :i pair of socks to fit. He solved the problem dimply by going without socks and wearing |ils Chiii'Iis Chaplin brognns over well-scrubbed but naked feet. This went against the grain wJMi R. B. Chandler, publisher of the Mobile Press-Register, who suspected that the eyes of the nation would be cast on the governor's big. undrapod feet. So with the dignity of Alabdrriii at slake, Chandler dictated a foi- mal letter to the governor just before his inauguration. Chandler observed, in effect, that he didr.'t mind Big Jim sticking his foot in his mouth occasionally as loru; a« he didn't stick both feet In thu rubllc eye. He pointed out the governor's' feet—sans socka — would be exposed to news cameras at the inauguration and might make bigger news than the ceremony itself. Finally, to savo thu state from embarrassment, Chaudler offered to scare up some .lockt for tho governor. Cars Tagged In Night Parking Ban Polclp Captain Anthony A.
