SATURDAY, APRIL «, 1955 BLTTHEVtLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAQBTHRE* £ den Lacks Emotional Range of Churchill By JAMES MARLOW Associated fiest Newt Analyfl WASHINGTON (AP) — Sir Winston Churchill had become such a svmbol of Britain it was almost as if he owned the, place. Sir Anthony Eden, his successor as prime minister, is more like a manager. * That impression of Eden is not unfitting in the second half of the 20th century. Someday, unless there are big changes, it may be called the era of the managers. In the first half some heads of government acted strictly like owners. They come to mind easily enough: the Kaiser, the Czar, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini. As this century gallops into Us last lap the heads of all the big governments—that includes Rus- PAPER DOLL—The look ol amazement on lovely Ruth Robert's face is explained by hei press agent as surprise at th< sad shape of the world thest days. He adds that long-legged Kuthie, who wants to win tin "Miss Photogenic Queen of Boston" title, is far from being it bad shape. Masonic Head Visits Hornersville By H. L. YEAGER , HORNERSVILLE, Mo. — Ortes Mitchell, Jr., of St. Joseph, Mo., Grand Master of the Masonic Lodge of Missouri, visited Hornersville Lodge No. 215 A. F. & A. M. Tuesday evening in a tour of his jurisdiction. Others from Grand Lodge outside of the 51st District, accompanying him were Harold O. Grauel, Grand Junior Deacon, and Kev. Franke, Grand Chaplain, both of Cape Girardcau. Arthur U. Goodman, D. D. G. M., and John Shipman, Grand Lecturer, both of Kennett, attended representing: the 51st District, The lodge was opened at 6 o'clock in a meeting complimenting the Grand Master and, other distinguished visitors of Missouri and Arkansas. T. B. Wilkins, W. M. of Hornersville Lodge, presided. At 7:30 a supper was served by the Order of Eastern Slar in the Methodist Church dining room. At the meeting in the lodge hall following, the distinguished guests were introduced. Short talks were made by Mitchell, Grauell and Franke. About 300 members of the order were present. Visitors came from eight lodges in Arkansas, and perhaps twice as many lodges of Missouri were represented. About 40 Masters and Past Masters signed the visitors' register. sia, with qualifications — seem more like managers than proprietors. Parallels Industry That parallels what has hap- paned in industry, where almost all the big individual owners are gone. The giant corporations now are in the hands of managers chosen by the stockholders through their boards of directors. Churchill, as head of a democratic country, could have been tossed out any time by the voters. So he was never more than a manager either. But by his massive personality he seemed to embrace all Britain. Eden will appear less dominant than Churchill. He lacks the old man's emotional range: the magnificent oratory, the sense of fire, the whimsy, the thundering scorn, the growl, the almost indestructible physical power. Eden, more fragile physically, is not a distinguished speaker. But he has brains and, apparently, a lot of shrewd, common sense. His who)e mature life, part of it under Churchill's wing, has been a preparation for his new job, The Kaiser arid the Czar both acted like owners of Germany and Russia. The Czar was followed by Lenin, who was the real owner of the Russian Revolution. His spiritual crown prince who succeeded him, Stalin, acted like an owner too. In the present Russian ruling -clique, although not democratically chosen, there is no one individual who can be considered the new owner. They talk of communism but they also talk like managers about consumer goods and heavy industry. Adenauer * Boss The present head of the new, democratic Western Germany, Chancellor Adenauer, is simply boss of a group of men picked to run the country. The voters put him there. While Mussolini owned Italy's Fascist revolution, he has been succeeded by a democratic government with no towering figures. They act like managers, not giants. President Roosevelt's critics, because of his power in the depression and World War n, may have fell he acted aa if he owned the United States. He was a world leader but he was never proprietor of anything more than the New Deal. No American president before torn in this century loomed so large on the world scene. Each in his way was a manager. And Roosevelt's successors, Presidents Truman and Eisenhower, never have shown any proprietary attitudes. They have gone about their business briskly, like any manager in General Motors. Doughnut Mileage HARRISON, N.J.

He's co-manager of a bakery that supplies 25 restaurants. A game similar to mumble-the- peg is played with a table fork in some parts of Ireland. FRESH CAGED EGGS Delivered to j'our door E. S.

The new arrangement completely bypasses Seattle, Wash., traditional "gateway to Alaska," and links the largest U. S. production centers directly with Alaska consumers. Freight will flow north and west over Canadian railways to Dawson Creek, British Columbia, and there will be transferred to large trucks which will follow the Alaska Highway 1500 miles to Fairbanks, Anchorage and other Alaskan points. Canadian-Alaskan Freight Express, Inc., developer of .the new route, says it will cut the travel time from Chicago to Anchorage or Fairbanks from six weeks to three weeks. Upper map indicates new route, and bottom map shows how major cities in northern U. S. will be linked with it.
