Let our observance of Christmas In troubled 1951 tell once more of the deep faith we have in the Tightness of this cause. Let it speak our denial that any other path is worth treading for even a fleeting second of human history. 'Neutral' Wanted H will be well if the Republican! can select a new Senate minority leader ' wiio is in the nature of a compromise choice. Since ha must serve an spokesman for the whole GOP Senate membership, this seems more reasonable than that he represent merely one faction or another. Especially does this appear a wise course for 1952, a political year. There should be no situation which would encourage Senator Wherry's successor to use his post of power and responsibility for the advantage of a particular presidential candidate. The floor leader should not have the aspect of the candidate's floor manager at convention time. SO THEY SAY Postal Rate Act Christmas-A Way of Life That Is Barrier to Tyranny To tht Wwtern world, Christianity !• > great foundation stone. On it ar« built many «ndurinjr religions. Rising from It, too, i« th« West's ennobling morality, with it* sxalting emphasis on in-, dividual human dignity and the broth- •rhood of man. When w« observe Christ's birthday, w« honor th« Son of God. We do more. W« honor a way of life that lifts man himtelf to a pinnacle. Christmas is al- wayi a reaffirming of faith in our fellow men, of hop* for their betterment. From time to time, since ths advent on th« world scene of the letter-day dictators—Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin—• w« have heard pleas for tolerance and understanding of their "different" way of life. We have been hold that we must view these tyrants objectively. How do ws know they are not necessary agents in a vast social upheaval that will usher in a far better life for all men? How do we know they rio not present the "wave of the future"? The men who urge upon us this kind of objectivity do not grasp the fundamentals of their own society. Our modern tyrants, worse even than their most notorious forebears, are ruthless beasts trampling human rights and crushing man's individuality. To condone this bestiality even back- handcdly, by declaring that it may lead to something belter, is only a tortuous way of saying that the cud justifies the means. And that is a notion utterly foreign to the Christian way of life. This sort of "objectivity" we can never embrace For the people of the Western world, through millions of individual judgments across the centuries since Christ's birth, have erected the edifice of Christendom. Those judgments were subjective—not objective. They represented the conclusion again and again and again (hat man was worth dignifying, worth elevating to a realm where he could be fvee to work his own destiny. Therefore, \ve who follow Christian tenets are irevoeably committed to a course which eschews tyrannical oppression and the destruction of human rights in any form or degree. Our whole concept of living is rooted in the subjective decision to honor God and man. There is no turning back to the "objective" study of ways which do not exalt God and man. There is only a moving forward toward fuller realization of the Christian brotherhood of men. Tliera is no acknowledgement thai the devices of tyranny can serve even momenUrily as weapons advancing Few acts of Congress better Illustrate the present futility of congressional effort than the postal rate raise hill. It was Initiated In Congress to meet the Increasing postal deficit. That was tlif opening argument. But the pressure groups soon changed Its purpose. As a result, we have a finished piece of legislation that raises revenues les» ahan enough to meet an accompanying postal pay raise. The deficit will be greater than ever. And that'i not all. A rider greatly Increase* vacation time for federal employee*. This Is done despite the present necessity of more work and harder work to meet a national crisis. This act of Congress contribute* materially to the Inflationary effect by Increasing the government deficit, by providing more Individual Income and by shortening working hours of federal employeea. A pay raise for the postal employees 1» doubt- leu Justified on the basia of rising living costs. But the postal service should be required to pay th« freight. Rates should be raised sufficiently to balance the postal budget. To do that justly, the mechanics are simple. Abolish all free postaga. Headjust ,all rates to cost, of aervict. by aound cost accounting. Require all government agenciea and officials to pay cash tor postage, thus charging rightly the expense to the taxpayer Instead of the postal user. If we wish to subsidize anything, the coat should not be charged to an operating bill the public It expected to pay. Then U sheer hipocracy In an act - raising postal pay on account of the living cosi'Mid then including In the act provisions to -accelerate the rising spiral. —THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS Man and Party The admonition, "Vote for the m»n, not th» party" Is gaining great favor in the one-party South these days, and for obvious reason*.

Nixon Seeks a New Probe Of FHA-Contractor Relationships By PETER EI>SON NEA Washington Corrcspondrni WASHINGTON. <NEA>—Further investigation of the relations between the Federal Housing Administration and two Charleston. S. G., builders and contractors has now been demanded by Senator Richard M. Nixon of California. In a letter to PHA Commissioner Franklin D. Richards, Senator Nixon has asked tUe government's imilti- mlllion dollar mortgage Insurance ngency to look • into reports brought to his attention. They charge PHA discrimina ticni ngninst cmt- of-state builders In tlio Charleston nrca, where J. G Peter Eilson Long and h 1 j brother Leonard D. Long nre the biggest operators in the housing construction field. It was Senator Nixon who first drew public attention to the business relationships between J. C. Long and Frederick Carpenter, FHA's director In Puerto Ricp. Sen- ator Nixon called tha Carpenter ase to the attention of FHA off- clals in a letter dated Nov. 13. FHA headquarters In Washington says it received its first report from he Federal Bureau of Investigation n Carpenter's connections with'5 private business enterprises n Puerto Rican housing projects, This was on Dec. 4. The next day arpenter was fired from his government job. Senator Nixon and Commissioner Richards had a meeting after Carpenter was flred. Following this session the SeruUor Issued a statement In which he commended FHA for its prompt action in discharging an employe after his case had been called to the agency's attention. The Senator then stated that Federal Housing , Administration should be given every opportunity to make its own investigation any complaints brought against it What action Is taken subsequently will be dependent on the manner in which FHA corrects any irregularities disclosed by Its own investigations. What Senator Nixon Is aiming a ultimately is the question of in fluence In the granting of majo roject mortgage Insurance, overvaluation on commitments, and the lyramldlng of operations by build- :rs so that, from small beginnings, hey become, in lime, big opera- ors under the FHA system. NIXON SHOOTS FOR FIIA INVESTIGATION In other' words, what Senator Nixon is shooting at Is a possible in vestigation of FHA on a big scale. The Puerto Rico case, involving Mr. Carpenter and J. C. Long was relatively minor incident uncovered along the way. Long's interest In Puerto Ricnn housing goes back to the days of Governor Pinero, who was anxious to do something about the Island's terrible slums. After the war, Pinero persuaded Long to build 4000 small houses on the outskirts of San Juan, to sell for $4000. By special tax concessions to Long, payments were reduced to minima that Puerto Ricans could afford. Federal Housing Administration was brought into the picture to Insure the mortgages, but its dealings wore with the purchasers. Frederick Carpenter, who had gone to Puerto Rico in 1938 when See EDSOV on Page 13 symptoms first started because (hey develop so gradually. Usually the first feeling li one of languor, or lack of pep. The face becomes pale, the whites of the eye* look pearly, the muscles seem to be flabby, the pulse is soft and large but has slight Jerk, especially when the person Is excited. An uncomfortable feeling of fatigue appears on «ven slight exertion. The whole surface of the body look* whitened, smooth and rather warlike. When the disease goea untreated, the paleness becomes worse and worse. A small amount of swell- Ing is likely to develop around the ankles; the appetite fails. Eventually the sickness may become so severe that the patient cannot even rise from bed. Sympoms such as these, although typical of pernicious anemia, are not sufficient to make a diagnosis. The diagnosis is made principally on the results of the examination of the blood under the microscope and on the absence of acid in the stomach secretion.
