WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Sen. George Seems to Have Administration a Bit Confused By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — Twice within 10 days, dignified Sen. George (D-Ga) has set the Eisenhower administration to talking every which way. The result has been confusion compounded. The 77-year-old Georgian simply said what was on his mind. If the Eisenhower administration had been as direct, there 1 might have been no confusion. George is the Senate Democrats' leader on foreign affairs. First he refused to accept the Yalta papers on a confidential basis from Secretary of State Dulles. Tlien he suggested President Eisenhower sit down with the heads of the British, French and Russian governments to talk peace. He wanted it done soon. Here is what happened: A week ago Monday the State Department said it was sending the Yalta papers — on the wartime Roosevelt-Churchill - Stalin meeting—to six congressional committees and the Democratic and Republican leaders in both houses. Twenty-four copies were to be sent. Nevertheless, Dulles' press officer Henry Suydam said the papers couldn't be released publicly because they involved national security. Perhaps it slipped his mind, but Dulles has been around long enough to know one of the best ways to get any thing out in the public is to hand It around in Congress, where a leak to a newspaper is no surprise. George Thought of It If a member .of Congress did "leak" the Yalta papers,,of course, the State Department could say it wasn't respoasible. But if Dulles didn't think of this, George did. Backed by other Democrats, he refused to accept the papers. He didn't want to be blamed for any "leak" that happened, he said. Dulles then changed hts mind. Instead of sending the papers to Congress, he said they would be available for inspection ori request. On Tuesday Dulles said the papers would not be made public for some time, perhaps not for months. Tuesday night someone, presum- Bald Solons Want Probe of Haircut Price COLUMBUS. Ohio (IP) — Bald members of the Ohio House have called for an inquiry into the price of haircuts. Their resolution yesterday noted that barbers charge 25 cents extra for crew, butch or flattop haircuts and suggested barbers could shave their prices for those with little, if any, hair on top. Proposing that the nine sponsors make the investigation, the resolution read: "In view of the premium ... it is altogether commensurate with justice, equity and fair play that a reciprocal reduction of price be effected for those of us who through no fault of our own, are endowed with that badge of experience and ability called baldness. Mistakes True But Not Enough RICHMOND, Va. M*—Miss Dorothy M. Slender said In traffic court her summons overstated her speed, listed the wrong time and misspelled her home town of Crewe. Worst of all, she said, she was listed as a male. "I'm a female," she told the court. "A gross mistake." agreed Judge Carleton E. Jewett — but not gross enough, he added, to throw out the charge. The case was continued. WHAT'S AHEAD? - Better folk than this fellow hnve lost their heads over the troubled world situation.

First ably in the stale Department, which had the papers, "leaked" them to a newspaper. When word of this got around Washington the next day. Wednesday, Dulles released the papers publicly. Suydam said yesterday tlv State Deportment has made no investigation to find the "leak" although he had said it involved national security. Yes and No Last Sunday, answering a question on a TV program, George made his suggestion about Eisenhower meeting with the heads of the other big powers. On Monday and Tuesday administration spokesmen made a series of statements which seemed to say both yes and no to George's proposal. After two days of that no one could be sure what the adminis- tration position was. For example, Sen. Knowland of California, Republican Senate leader, came out of a conference with Eisenhower and said George's idea was not the administration's view. Then Elsenhower's press secretary James Hagerty said Knowland had correctly reported the President's thoughts but added that he saw no inconsistency between the Eisenhower - Dulles position and that of George. Elsenhower and Dulles have said there should be no, big meeting with the Russians until they prove their good intentions. George would brush aside that requirement in order to get the big powers to start talking Statements Mrs. K. B. Lf.ngsdon entertained the Luxora Book Club last week at her home In Osceola. Mrs. Wirt Steed, a former member of the :lub, was a special guest. Mrs. Tom Callis entertained th» jroup with movies taken on one of ier trips to the Eastern seaboard. During the social hour, a salad plate and coffee were served. Spring flowers were used to decorate Mrs. Langsdon's home. Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Edrington and family moved Friday into their new home on N. Marjorie Street. Mrs. Jim Hyatt was hostess Thursday night to Club 17. A dessert course preceded the bridge games. Miss June Welborn won high score 'and Mrs. Gene Teaford won second high. from the Stale Department were no more illuminating than Hagerty's. STARR GAZING By BETTYE NELLE STARK Courier News Staff Correspondent Patrick Henry's "Liberty or Death," speech wns made on this date in 1775. Roosevelt's (Teddy, that !s, and natch) African expedition sailed on March 23, 1903, under the auspices of Smithsonian Institute. Sir Walter Raleigh—any , similarity between him and the cigaret is purely commercial—anyhow getting back to the old gentleman, he was given the right to colonize America on March 25, 1584. And on March 26, 1724, the widow of William Penn, Hannah Penn. got hot under her Quaker collar and wrote the Colonial Governor. Sir William Keith, a few things or two. It seems that hardhearted Hannah tended to her husband's affairs for nine years after his death.' She published a letter (Old Benjamin, you-know-who, probably had a hand in printing it) where she admonished the Governor to see to j it that at least half of his council- j men were Quakers and to undertake nothing without the council's approval—and she didn't mean maybe. They tell me Quakers are hard to wean. You know what I always say about church suppers, you find out who are the biggest eaters and the best cooks. Well, everybody looks forward to the old fashioned chess pies of Mrs. R. C. Bryan, so I though somebody else besides the Presbyterians might want to try them and here's how: Cream together 1 stick margarine and two cups sugar. Beat in four whole eggs and add 1 cup of rich milk-half and half, woud be finer. Pour into unbaked pie shell and cook real slow until center of pie is done. Church supper or no church supper, this is the pie that kept your grandpa from leaving your grandma. Guess I'm the first person in the history of the laundry business who has had a pair of ladies garters Laundered—and I'm wondering what the laundry had to say about the height of somebody's laziness. I promise, Mr. Laundryman, it was an accident and from now on, when they aren't in use, I'll hang 'em on grandma's ball-tree.. Now they're blaming the new automobile tires in all their three delicious colors on us women folk. Who's getting the blame for the popularity in pink and orchid col- ored shirts for men? Women suppose. For a long, long, time I thought women were the only clothes conscious human beings, until I rode over to Jonesbdrd with four of the opposite sex. I learned more about, imports and exports than all the 12 years I owned a ladies' ready to wear shop. Those four men discussed stories from New York to San Franciso, where certain brands of haberdashery could be found, about like my friends, quote Halle-On-Main. Did you know the upholstery on airplane seats is hard on cashmere and that British made shoes had a wider heel-last than American made shoes, and when a man's suit is hand-made, brother, it's handmade in a factory where there isn't even out 1 sewing machine. Now take shirts. The buttons made from muscle shells have to come from a certain section of the country or else they just ain't buttons. If a hat brim is too stiff, the manufacturer compounded too much shellac in the. varnish. P. S.: I wonder what's new in grandpa's long-drawers! Oh, no! Not the same old-fashioned trapdoor. Surveys show that 82 percent of those planning new homes want lireplaces. I'm happy to say I'm one of the 18 percent who doesn't. Have you ever gone out in mud and slush to bring in ji scuttle of cual or broken your back bringing in a "back-log" to say nothing of taking- that said scuttle of coal and back-log our, in ashes form, after the rest of the family rear back and drink in the beauty of burning embers? That's the dreamer's name for it. This is food for thought, so think twice before you get too romantic about nn open fire and if you weaken, don't .say I didn't warn you.
