PAOT.TWELTI BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, MARCH 2S, 1955 SEC Chairman Gives Brokers Good Report By ED CREAGH WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission gave the nation's brokers a good report card today in the Senate's stock market inquiry. Ralph H. Demmler, whose agency polices market activity, said in testimony prepared for the Senate Banking Committee: 'While some violations of the various securities laws undoubtedly go undetected, I believe that there is not prevalent any serious wave of illegal practices by brokers and dealers." Always Loopholes But he said its a never-ending chore to devise .rules and regulations "to close loopholes which the ingenious seek to discover." "It must be borne in mind," he said "that abuses which subtly creep into business transactions are frequently in the nature of unfair practices, overreaching, informal collusive action, activities not in accordance with just and equitable principles of trade. "The line between the unethical and the illegal is sometimes hard to draw." Demmler was called as the next- to-last witness in a series of committee hearings enlivened by a feud between Chairman Fulbright (D-Ark) and the senior Republican, Sen. Capeharl oi Indiana. Fullbnght yesterday rebuffed a demand for an immediate vote on recalling Harvard economist John Kenneth Galbraith to the witness chair. He said the matter could be decided later. Capehart termed Galbraith a pro-New Deal exponent of "gloom and doom." He urged that he be called back for" questioning about his authorship of a 1940 pamphlet which Capehart interpreted as sympathetic toward communism. Fairless Fearless Galbraith. in Cambridge, Mass., said the pamphlet was exactly the opposite of the way Capehart represented it. He said the senator had quoted passages out of context. He wired Fulbright saying he'd be glad to testify again. There was no "gloom and doom" in yesterday's testimony. Board Chairman Benjamin Fairless of U.S. Steel said it's his view the country is on the threshold of one o! the greatest periods of prosperity in its history. Today's witness, Demmler, described how SBC policies the nation's securities markets — but cautioned investors against expecting too much of the agency. "There is a popular fallacy," he said, "that if a security has been registered with the commission. . . the commission has 'approved' it. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The commission has no power to approve or disapprove securities." WITH A SONG IN HER HEART — Sister Mary Norbert, a .teacher.at our Lady of Hungary School,'in Perth Amboy. N. J., is a newcomer among hit song writers. She wrote "In The Chapel of 'My Heart" for a school show, but the song was purchased by a' music publisher. She uses Judy Martin as her nom de plume, because her two favorite saints are St. Jude and Blessed Martin. 6 BUSES DAILY TO ST.

'Political was building up 18 months ago — after British ships were attacked — for convoys to Red Chinese ports. 'That's, all we needed: To see our ships and planes given to the Nationalists involved in battle with the Royal Navy, our number one European ally." The American Embassy here says "responsible" British firms nave not been end-running the blockade. But there are many Hong Kong Chinese, with British citizenship and Communist business associates — who buy or charter profit- bent British, Scandinavian and Pan amanian ships for the Red-run. Officially the British ban "strategic" materials bound for Communist ports: we ban all trade. If a ship known to carry war material is en route to Red China it is not allowed to fuel in the crown colonies of Singapore or Hong Kong. There are as many ways to whip that as there ..are ways for wetbacks to slip over from Mexico. One example: 4 British ship leaves Liverpool carrying nothing more damaging than bubble gum. It slips into the Free Port of Tangier, where the only thing forbidden by law is shooting grandmother during dinner, and takes on ma- chine tools, vital for Peking's] irmy. Then — a refueling stop in :ndoesia — and on to China and a janus for all hands, lads. Since the Tachen evacuation the Nationalists have difficulty block- iding Shanghai, even if they were trying. Your map shows how long a idc it is from Formosa to Shang- iai. From Matsu and Quemoy and Formosa proper they can still keep an eye on Amyo and Foochow, but it is an eye that winks — or rather twitches with anger. I've just visited Gaishung, in the south of Formosa, the largest Nationalist naval base, where I shared a kidney and water chestnut dish with a ship commander back from "blockade" duty. I asked him: "What do you do. under present conditions, if you see a British Danish dr Panamanian ship nearing a Red Chinese port?" He laughed: "We 'talk' to them via blinker. We urge them not to enter the port, tell them it is dan- ;erous. make them think we will shoot." I continued: "But if they sail on?" He sighed: "We note their refusal in the ship's log."

"eorge's call for a give-and-take meeting of the heads of the major powers went beyond the point President Elsenhower and Secretary of Stole Dulles have been willing to go publicly." Eisenhower has said he was wiling to confer on world peace at any time but has specified that the Russians first must show sincerity by their actions. "Must Be in Force" A State Department spokesman said yesterday Dulles believes the Paris agreements for arming Germany must be "in force" and there must be evidence of ''a basis foi agreement, especially on the Ger man and Austrian questions," be fore the high-level talks can take place.
