Rayburn TV Ban on Probes Blows Up Political Football Speaker Sam Rayburn of the House of Representatives has stirred up a controversy by banning television and radio coverage of House committee hearings. The radio and television people, naturally, are up in arms. They say it's a heavy and unfair blow to their industry. Some people of Republican persuasion are aroused, too. They say the Democrats are trying to hamper disclosure of Administration shenanigans. The Democrats deny it. Some say the klieg lights anrl general hoopla of televising the hearings are unfair to witnesses and tend to make them jumpy and want to scream. Others says a witness with nothing on his conscience can usually survive the cameras' scrutiny with no lasting bad effects. Aside from such pro's and con's, there appears to he one aspect of the situation which must be given consideration. That is the right of the people of the country to know everything possible about their government. Certainly television and radio make an important contribution to such knowledge, just as c!o newspapers, with their news and picture coverage. Public interest in the government and its workings, considered by must to he a pretty healthful sign, received quite a shot in the arm as a result of televised congressional hearings in recent years. Among the products of these hearings was the rise to national prominence of a man who is now a candidate for President. Before he conducted a televised investigation into national crime, not too many people outside of Tennessee had heard much of him. And his rise to prominence i? not without point, perhaps, in the political aspects of the present squabble. Do political leaders look with complete favor on an instrument such as television which can suddenly elevate a man, im- summoned by party bosses, to a top rung on the party ladder? As matters stand, it is up to the House of Representatives itself to take action if it feels its Speaker is wrong. The House can make rules specifically applying to television and radio. It can even go so tar as to adopt legislation long advocated by Rep. Jacob Javits, New York Republican. He would allow televising of DIP House while it is in session — the sleepers, renders of newspapers and all. Bt/t'I'HETlLLB (ARK.) COURTER Ambassador's Post Not for Duke There are reports that the Duke of Windsor is talking to British bigwigs about getting a top government job, maybe even that of ambassador to the United States. But does he have the qualifications? Windsor has not been known particularly for his unflagging attention to matterR of Empire. In fact he's been chiefly known for frittering. The British, in their own solid, know these things. Hence the Duke, for all the affection in which he may be held by his people, seems an unlikely candidate for a job so important to Britain at this time as the one in Washington. Views of Others Silence Is Shrewd Policy For President Truman President Truman is more cagey than coy In H-lthholdlng announcement of his plans for re- nominallrm. Keep them guessing and lie keeps them iintier control. Announce an Intention of retiring and the party Immediately would spilt into factions, run rampant, and ignore him. Theodore Roosevelt In 1904, shortly after his election, declared he would not be a candidate in 100S. His power instantly lessened. The rclii.scd important parts of his li-gWatlvo program and Republican leaders defleri him. Later, this same Roosevelt said: "A president o/ the United States can, If he knows how to use the machinery at his disposal, renomlnate hirmeil." Tills statement probably is true, particularly since federal patronage became so large a part ot our political lite. Taft succeeded In gaining re- nomination in 1(112. Wilson In 1016.

He Is not likely to surrender that control until he must. The President has indicated he ivould announce his decision before April M. Until then, and perhaps even afterward, he probably will continue to Millie, parry a.11 questions and sit steady in the driver's seat. - --;?•- • —Atlanta Journal Smoking Our Own Cigars Here's a story that's a parable of government boons.

"Oh, it vvns easy;' the lady answered. "I just took a couple of cigars at a lime from the ones he bought for himself. He didn't miss them, and I got credit for a nice deed."

There are occasional odd quirks and corners which i mysterious although upon exploration they may turn out to b* simple, Indeed, The DOCTOR SAYS By EDWIN f. JORDAN, M. D. Written for VEA Service There are no startling new developments about fibroid tumors of the womb or uterus, but since a large number of women encounter difficulty with fibroids for the first time each year, this Is a subject which deserves repetition. In lact there are many women who have fibroids and are not even aware of it, but this Is no sis-n for atarm because, unless the fibroids are producing symptoms, they can be safely Ignored. Approximately one in five of all women who reach the ase of thirty five have fibroid tumors. These nodules or tumors may be large or small, Thr-y 2_-e mad: up of muscle tissue and connective tissue, the lalter being which like the tissue which makes an ordinary scar. The symptoms from fibroids depend on their location, size and blood supply. The best known symptom is excessive or painful bleeding. Sometimes discomfort or even severe pain in the lower part of the abdomen is the only sign of a fibroid. One of the most common symptoms is a foelin; of weight often accompanied with constant fatigue. Also fibroids can produce bladder or rectal symptoms apparently caused principally by the pressure of growths. Sometimes fibroids can interfere with conception. The cause of fibroid tumors is not known, though many theories have been suggested. Until the ause can be agreed on, therefore. it seems unlikely that much can be done to prevent (hem. Watch for Fibroid Growth Those fibroids which are not producing symptoms should receive what doctors call "expectant treatment." This means that they should be watched for symptoms and the size observed in case growth should become rapid. After the menopause, surcery is usually best for those fibroids which require treatment. Generally. the whole uterus with the tumors attached ha s to be taken out. Some fibroids can be treated by radium or deep X-rays, but this is complicated and much skill and Judgment is necessary in order to decide which tumors can be treated in this way. Fibroid tumors of the uterus have to be considered oil an individual basis. They may be large or small. they may prochire symptom-. or Ihcre may be none. Treatment may not be necessary or there may be a question of choice between several methods. They are so common in the middle years of life that they might almost be considered a normal part of growing a little older. 75 Years Ago In No later thin this a-eek th« op- i erations of the senatorial mlnilj »iat have baffled whok bittallon* i of the population which for many ' months now has heard, particular'? from senators, Joud fhouts of A dlgnation about corruption In tH« Intenal Revenue Bureau, accompanied by cries for reform and oth- ! er sanitary Improvements in the bureau that collects th« Income taxe«.
