NOVEMBER 14. 1953 Truman And Ike We wonder whether or not President Harry Truman is sorry now for his bitter personal attack on Dwight D. Eisenhower during the recent campaign. . , That was prompted by the announcement that President Truman and his successor in the White House will sit down together next Tuesday toldiscuss plans for an orderly exchange of 'administrations. . For years, the two men, Truman and Eisen- hower, have seemed to be warm personal friends. !Yet, when the going became rough in the cajnpaign, Truman did not spare the horses in his unprecedented whistle-stop tours to "stop Eisenhower," t Eisenhower severely criticized the record of thfe Truman administration, but he did not attack Truman personally ?We wonder how the two men will greet each other Tuesday. I Will bitterness of the campaign be ignored, perhaps forgotten, in the interest of national unity? -Will the greeting be "Hello Ike" and "Hello Harry" or very formal? t Politics often brings out strange behavior in ' individuals. Things are said and promises made irthe heat of a campaign which never should have been said or made. Friendships of long standing frequently are broken off as a result of politics. tYet, we wouldn't change the American way ofdoing things, politically speaking, other than tovhave a shorter campaign for the Presidency ai$i then for the new President not to have to w$it so long to take office. History has taught us that the longer a political campaign lasts, the more bitter it becomes. iBut, getting back to Truman and Eisenhower, w$hope their meeting at least will be frank and that all cards are put 'on the table in the best interests of the country. H-Bomb And Korea It is reported that the United States has ac&ed the dread hydrogen bomb to its arsenal of weapons. Z Still our men in Korea are fighting the Communist enemy with bayonets, hand grenades, tven their fists. In Korea, war is being waged at times in the same manner primitive man fo&ght. The logical question to ask is this: JWhat are we saving our atomic weapons for? 'The assumption must be that we are holding them as a threat over Soviet Russia in an effort tolprevent a destructive, exhausting third world war. But that does not solve the problem in Korea, noV does it help our fighting men there. To thpse men, atomic bombs and hydrogen bombs are merely something to read about. A Thankless Job Trygve Lie, who resigned a year ahead of time as secretary-general of the United Nations, is Jmder fire from two directions. Moscow radio, in an abusive broadcast, said hii resignation showed his "complete political bankruptcy." I In contrast, U. S. Sen. Pat McCarran, chairman of the Senate subcommittee looking into alleged American Communists in the U. N. Secretariat, rejected Lie's announced reason for resigning. McCarran said he believed Lie resigned because of "disclosures made and disclosures we will make in the future.' McCarran added Lie's stated reasons reminded him of a Thanksgiving pumpkin: "It" looked good, but it was hollow." The Times is in no position to pass judgment orTrygve Lie, but it appears that he has done the best he could under trying conditions. The fact cannot be ignored that Soviet Russia and its Communist satellites, with the exception of Red China, are members of the United Nations also. Lie, as secretary-general, apparently has gone as far as he could in combating the Communist influence. As a result Russia arjd its satellites boycotted him in 1950. At its best, it would seem that being secretary-general of the U. N., is a thankless job. Lie cannot be blamed for gettting out. Working Wives Now that the voting is over, the next major problem lurking just around the corner for many a family is Christmas shopping. Department stores are already beginning to advertise for ex tra sales help in preparation for heavy Christ-mis sales. Many of the women who take on sales jobs at this time of the year are married. If they worked regularly, the income tax would take a sizable bite out of their wages. But for the wife who works only two months of the year, for instance, the annual income tax is negligible. J Suppose that Friend Husband earns $4500 dm-ing the year (an average of about $86.50 a wek), that there is no other source of family income, and that he has no dependents except Tge Wife. Well, if she takes a job at $40 a week for two months, the family income-tax (federal) wfil be increased by only $71, or by about $1.35 a wgek on an annual basis. That still comes to ablaut $8 a week for the period she Is working. Suppose she fills that $40-a-week job through- c oilt the year. Then the family income-tax will be increased by about' $415 a year. That again -is$8 a week for the period she works. J If the husband's income is more than $4500 ayear, .the income-tax bite out of the wife's -ysar-around job is correspondingly higher, especially if the job pays more than $40. ' Everyday E V C II t S By W. J. HOOTEN Lucile. Prim (Mrs. Roy D.) Jackson has a problem. , She wrote a letter to Chris Fox telling him about it and sent me a copy. Recently, she visited Mr. and Mrs. Roy D. Jackson, Jr., in Philadelphia. They have three children, two of whom were born in Texas, and the youngest in Philadelphia The latest edition, 'Michael Ray, arrived on the scene Jan. 26. During her visit, the two older children, Roy Dale III, 7, and Tinitia (Christine Jr.) 5, told Mrs. Jackson how sorry they felt for their little brother. Said the little girl: ' . "You see, Grandmother, Dale and I are Texans, but poor, poor Michael Ray is damyankee." Mrs. Jackson had heard that Chris Fox had a way of issuing honorary Texas certificates. She wants one for her new grandson. I'm sure Chris would like nothing better than , to send Michael Ray such a certificate. BORDER ATMOSPHERE A very interesting letter and article . Just arrived from Evelyn (Mrs LaMont) -West, formerly of Deming who, with Mr., West, now lives in Marion, Ky. Read her letter first: - "Dear Mr. Hooten: , x "I am sending you a news item concerning people in Luna County and El Paso who co-operated with me in presenting . a program here in Marion. "I was sure a program on the Southwest would be of interest here, but it surpassed by far my expectations. It has been fun doing it, and I am still selling the Southwest even though I love Kentucky now. "There is no place that. I have found in my travels that can compare with Kentucky this past October. The coloring of fall was more beautiful this year than for many years. So we 'were lucky to experience this . year's fall. I missed - October in the desert. . "My husband enjoys his work here with the Penn-Salt Corp. in their Kentucky expansion program. Perhaps we can get to a mining meeting in El Paso in another year. . ' . - "I miss reading and writing for ' The El Paso Times. Our morning paper here is the Louisville Courier Journal, one of the few pro-Stevenson papers. . "I have not forgotten the talk you made -in Deming in which you warned Americans to wake up.' It is men like you and talks like that that won this election. And I know that your paper had an important part in leading Texans to the polls to vote for a cleanup in Washington. "Best regards from Mr. West and myself." ABOUT THE PROGRAM Now here's her article: "El Paso and Luna County were given recognition at a program on Southwestern art given by Mrs. LaMont West, former Deming resident, before the Federated Woman's Club of Marion, Kentucky, recently, i "Mrs. West used the Southwest border theme in her talk, room decorations, table decorations, dresses and jewelry worn by herself and hostesses. There was also a display of Mexican and Indian handicraft and art. "Mrs. Herbert Jeffers, artist of Columbus, planned, prepared and sent the table decorations to Mrs. West The arrangement consisted of desert plants found along the international border. Included were decorated gourds, silvered fiber from the prickly pear cactus plant, tornilla beans and mesquite beans. "Red and green chili peppers from the Oliver Ruebush farm of Deming were used in decorating the club room. "Mrs. West and her hostesses were . wearing costumes sent by members of the Deming Lioness Club. "Mrs. West demonstrated the art of Mexican cookery, and prepared two Mexican dishes, enchilladas and tacos. Refreshments consisted of. Mexican food. Ashley's Inc. of El Paso furnished the tortillas and chili sauce for the demonstration and refreshments. "The El Paso Chamber of Commerce, thePemex Travel. Club and the Deming Chamber of Commerc assisted Mrs. West in providing information. "T!?is program created a great deal of interest n Western Kentucky, according to Mrs. West. 'It was a pleasure. to tell the women of Marion about the Kingdom of the Sun Country, our Southwestern United States.'" I think that was wonderful. Once we live in this section of our country, we never forget it. NEWS OF ROSWELL Enjoyed a nice , visit Thursday with . Claud Simpson, veteran manager of the Roswell Chamber of Commerce. He al- ' , ways has fountains of information pertaining to Roswell right at his finger tips. For instance, during the period Aug. 4 to Sept. 20, 875 new families inquired at the Roswell C of C for housing facilities. During that same period 300 rental units were listed. If all of the 300 left the city that still left a net gain of 575 families. Roswell still has a housing shortage. Contractors have applied for 200 addi- . tional FHAhomes. The Petroleum Building, money for which was raised by public subscription in Roswell, is under construction. It will be four stories. The foundation is for eight stories. All the space in . the four stories already has been leased to oil companies. HIGHWAY OFFICIALS VISIT Also enjoyed visits Thursday with E. H. Thornton of Galveston, chairman of the Texas Highway Commission, and Fred , Wemple of m Midland, a member of that commission.' It was my pleasure to take them and E. W. Mars, district engineer 4 , f or the State Highway Department, to . the Rotary Club. I predict El. Paso may expect early and favorable additional consideration from the highway commission.

THESE DAYS By GEORGE E. SOKOLSXY ICavrriskt. MS. Ktms hHw The genius of the American people is progress through ' dilferences. It lias been the constant interplay of individual responses to the challenges of problems that has made It : ' possible for our people to achieve so znucli in the atmosphere of freedom. ' ' Tyrants demand unity of thought and attitude, and when. they achieve it, as Hitler and , - Stalin did, they reduce a pople to physical or spiritual slavery, or both. Unity is the antithese s of liberty. It can only producs an intellectual smog. We are now witnessing a not un usual pheiom- enon. for our country, of a strong effort on the part of New Dealers, professional in -temationilists, gay do-gooders and even Com--munists muscling intj the R e p u b 1 i can GMrn e. EekaUky Party. T :i e 1 r cry is for unity. Let all the smart boys who made the mistakes that wrecked us in Asia and loi.i for us a war we had won in Europe, continue to have a good tirr e despoiling the United States and all in the name of unity! Speaking The Public Mind The Shepherd URGES PRAYERS FOR OUR LEADERS Editor, El Paso Times: The American electorate, by the largest vote in our history hey say, has placed a new President in the White House. . Whether he was your candidate or not, or mine or not we can all help, especially with onr prayers. The President, no matter how popular, how intellectual, how prudent, how humble he may be, can accomplish little without the co-operation of the Senate and the House of Representatives. Therefore, the members of these two branches of our legislature need our prayers also. As our representatives, it should not be out of line I think for us to write to the President and the senators and representatives of our own and other states to tell them to pray also and ever to be - guided by principle and not by partisan leanings; to think of helping our nation as a whole and even tjie world as a whole. Certainly it is necessary that we continue our two-party system in the United States, one representing slightly over one-half of all the people and the other nearly one-half; but Democrats and Republicans alike in our government should try to arrive at the same conclusions after disengaging themselves from acquired prejudices, "walking humbly before God," and imploring His light to illuminate their own minds. Vever should we vote for a man wno has no religion, because he is not likely to have clear-cut ideas of what is. moral or immoral before God. , No matter what the prospects seem .to be at the moment, we t have no right to believe that the ' future of this nation will be sale and secure for us and satisfactory to God unless our political leaders, our, press, and other media of propaganda foster the cause of religion and morality. Almighty God is interested in nothing else. The outlook is not good for the next "generation because youth is being reared without any moral training. J." Edgar Hoover, in his most recent report, tells us that TRUTH "It is bad, saitbt the buyer, but when he is gone, he boasteth." Prov. 20:14 during the first six months of this year more than 1,000,000 major crimes were committed, and that the guilty ones were, for the most part, under 25 years of age; that the 18-year-olds were more guUty than those of any other age group. These 18-year-olds are, for the most part, still in high school. Their minds are being perverted by the filthy literature with which this country is being flooded and by the evidence of double-talk and double-dealing being 1 stock in trade with persons in high political positions. Public opinidn should be aroused against these evils these poisoning processes by every media of pubUcity, and those who should express the J A V deepest concern are those who JA) AHQ 4U 1 C3FS represent us in . government, whether federal, state or local. A Pfl Itl Kl fKfi National repentence is needed, . 6 but individually those who realize this are the ones who must tell their representatives in government to set the example and plead with the citizenry to pray, and o ;try to merit God's help. That accomplished, the world would be more disposed to follow our leaders and to profit by following. About your deal, don't falsify . . . And claim "hard business rules apply" ... Or be unscrupulously smart . . . And call it "advertising art" ... Do not talk down his merchandise ... Or lie to gain a compromise . . . Or take advantage of the price ... At othen loss and sacrifice . . . 'Tis not the Christian thing to do . . . And those things never profit you. JULIEN C. HYER r Even if it were possible that the Eisenhower victory coUd be twisted into nothing more serious than a toned-down Achescnism, it would be harmful to the country to lessen debate, to avt id investigations into the errors made over a 20-year period and their causes. The temper of the country would not permit a pall of orchids over the nice people who have caused such confusion. Nice people can do- frightful mischief someimes as, for instance, the activities of Alger Hiss, to say nothing of Frederick Vanderbilt Field, who is the nicest of them alL The opposite of unity, politically in America, is not disurity; it is intellectual and spiritual freedom; it is difference of opinion, constantly expressed; it is the investigation of cause and effect in public affairs. The opposite of unity is the two-party system, a wholesome political mechanism which prevents the "ins" from becoming flatulent and corrtipt and proud of place; and keeps the "outs' hammering away at the facts of life, not enly in search for the truth, but as a justification for throwir.g the "ins" out. And by that they mean that everybody should get behind them blindly and should criticize nothing. In the intoxication of a long-delayed victory, they are not thinking clearly. I have been a Republican for , these 20 luckless years, believing ardently in the two-party system, recognizing the great advantage of free criticism of government Victory cannot dispel a fundamental principle; success can only strengthen the correctness of an ideal The current outcry for unity seems, to be most articulate, even vehement, among the internationalists who hope that' the policies of American support for the economies of Great Britain and the Western European countries will be continued without even the slightest reappraisal of the past and without any adjustment to the economy of our country. They are stand-patters. Their orthodoxy in international relations narrows their vision so that while they can gaze at the world, they do not see the United States of America. When the RepubUcans were eating thistles in the desert for 20 years, they were ardont supporters of the two-party system, making a fetish of it. Already some of them are shouting, unity! Their greatest fear is that any new look at world affairs will establish the bankruptcy of both the Marshaiy Plan concept of European aid and the containment policy in Europe while giving the Russians a free hand in Asia. When they insist upon unity, they do not mean behind Eisenhower but in support of the Acheson appeasement of Soviet Russia while giving the appearance of bellicose intentions. These internationalists object to Eisenhower's concern over. Korea. They would have him forget Korea and the 123,000 American casualties there and to devote himself rather to Anthony Eden and the forthcoming British request for aid but calling it something else. These ' internationalists do not read the election returns correctly. General Eisenhower wrs chosen, among other 1 tsons, on the Korean issue. When Eisenhower said that he would go to Korea personally he won the elction. It is not that such a trip will solve any problem; it was rather that every mother felt that here was a man whj could be trusted to look after her boy. That confidence4ra General Eisenhower should not be dispelled by anr shouting by New Dealers for unity.

There are documented facts to prove that the United Nations is the "brain-child" of Soviet Rus-. sia; and the fact was further proved when their key man in the United States, Alger Hiss, led the one-world organization with its all-catching name of United Nations; and with the enthusiastic support of Eleanor Roosevelt, the 1 super-duper busy-body of all time, the fantastic dream of the final ' - conquest of the United States was put into operation with the greatest double-dealing ever perpetuated upon mankind posing for world peace, while arming for world war bloodier than any other war ever to be conceived in the evil mind of man. As the people of this Christian nation, on Nov. 4 elected Dwight D. Eisenhower in an unmistable mandate against Trumanism, they must still go further, and demand . that this c-ne-world monstrosity, known as the United Nations, shall either be abolished outright, or that the United States will withdraw as a member; or that Soviet Russia will at once be kicked out. The courageous stand which The El Paso Times took in backing Ike to the hilt, is being fol lowed up in this Wednesday's edition of The Times on the editor- TWENTY YEARS AGO NOVEMBER 14, 1932 (Monday) El Paso's jobless men forces have been reduced from 1400 to 900 and all projects but improvement of the College of Mines' grounds and paving of Scenic Drive have been abandoned, until the city can negotiate another loan of $100,000 from the Reconstruction Finance Corp. As President Hoover's special train neared El Paso Sunday the Chief Executive in a lengthy telegram to Franklin D. Roosevelt invited the President-elect to confer with himat the White House late next week on pressing international debt questions and other governmental affairs. An order for rare old vintages, thought to be the first in El Paso, will be placed by the Hilton Hotel with an exclusive Paris, France, wine shop immediately. Manager H. W.

UO Washington Premier Pinay of France has thrown out feelers for an early if not immediate visit to the United States for a conference with General Eisenhower andor President Truman. At stake in this visit is the entire structure of our carefully built up Western European defense.

The French are sore as blazes over our discussion of the Arab de-mands for North African independence . at the U.N.- They even threaten to pull out of NATO if we don't back them tip against the Arabs. 2. The French feel they have been bled white in Indo-China and are about ready to durr p this in our lap in the same way the British dumped Greece. 3. The Pinay government is in danger of being voted out of office. Yet it's one of the most efficient governments France has had and definitely pro-American. It will need political support from the U. S. A. to stay in power, and that political support will have to come either in regard to the Arabs or Indo-China. 4. A huge Chinese Communist army is reported poise i on the Indo-Chinese border. If there's -peace in Korea, more troops and more materiel can feed the Communist "revolt" against the French. Perhaps worst of all, jnd hang ing over it all, is the growing anti-, Americanism, growing isolationism of the French. In the same way that many Americans are getting more isolationist, so are the French! They are increasingly suspicious of Germany, are bucking the United European Army, and it looks as if the great strides ' toward peace and unity might go down the drain.

This is the greatest problem the new President will have to face , for, whereas Korea is a very small war, what's happening in Europe is planting the definite seeds of another world war. CABINETEERS Sinclair Weeks, the Boston banker who came out for Eisenhower against Taft at a crucial moment before the Chicago convention, probably will not fulfill his great ambition to follow in the footsteps of his fathiT but'he is likely to get the No. 1 diplomatic post ambassador to the Court of St James. Because Eisenhower won't appoint two men to his cabinet from one state ' (Lodge and' Weeks of Massachusetts) Weeks will prob- ably miss the -opportunity to be secretary of defense, ar ambition . he .has cherished, since his father, f John W. Weeks, was secretary of war in the Ear ding-Coo: idge cabr-nets. , It was the elder Weeks who played an important put in the ,life of Gen. -Douglas MacArthur, giving him a promotion at a psy- . etiological time. . MacArthur, then a brigadier " general "in the Philippines, anx-- iously, watched other comrades getting promoted, finally had his then father-in-law, Edward T. Stotesbury, partner of J. P. Morgan, call on Secretary Weeks, re-mmd him of the Stotesbury contributions . to the GOP. Weeks promptly made Doug a major general. Today,1 his son, Sinclair, will, get first call on the No.-1 ambassadorship to"1 London which, in view of Queen Elizabeth's coronation in June, is quite a plum. Note Truman's ambassador to London is a Republican, Walter Gifford, head of the American Telephone and Telegraph Co, and he has resigned. PENTAGON SHAKE UP Top generals of the Defense Department are expecting a political shake-up. Politics isn't supposed to enter the military picture. However, everyone in the Army and Navy plays it from the generals down to the colonel's wives and this includes the White House, too. In the present case. Gen. Omar Bradley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is expected to be eased out. "Brad" started out being personally for Ike. But as the campaign progressed, he couldn't take Ike's statements about Korea, switched to Stevenson. Bradley was Eisenhower's top field commander during the European invasion, but nettled Ike a bit with his recent book when he revealed, more frankly than any other military man, the friction rith Field Marshal Montgomery during the Battle of the Bulge and the manner in which Eisenhower had appeased Monty. Since then Ike and Brad haven't been quite so chummy. -Bradley's place as head of the ioint Chiefs probably, will be iken by General "Betae' Smith, now head of Central Intelligence, forme: chief of staff to Eiseen-hower.
