Only Builds Interest in It Memo to those who would have sale of "U.S.A. Confidential" in Arkansas: best way to assure a hook's popularity is to tell the cuviousity-seeking American public, "Mustn't touch." Undoubtedly authors Jack Lait and Le« Mortimer were guilty of loose interpretation of the facts, to say the least. The Dallas Morning News and the Arkansas Gazette, both responsible newspapers, dropped Lait's column (a fill-in job for ailing Walter Winchell) after examining the hook. The men who edit and publish these newspapers aren't the type to become alarmed over a slight ripple on the national millpond. But bans have been singularly unsuccessful in preventing the sale of any publication. On the contrary, more than a few books owe the bulk of their sales success to well-publicized bans. Grievances belong to either groups or individuals should be resolved by the courts, Lait and Mortimer have no special brand of immunity. If half the charges brought against them are true, they should be up to their necks in additional civil actions before this reaches print. Then too, the idea of any group telling the people of this state what they can and can't rend somehow is rather unappealing to us. Let those who have been damaged seek redress through the 'courts . . . and let the reading public be guided by common sense and decency in deciding what it shall or shall not read. N. Hampshire Results May Smoke Out Truman's Plans The Drmocrafic regulars in New Hampshire nui.-.t be a pretty unhappy lot !he.=e day P. The man they snickered at. Senator Kcfauvor of Tennessee, moved into their bailiwick and stole the primary honors from President Truman with little more than amateur support. When Kefauver put himself in that race, the organization Democrats said he wouldn't win a delegate of the 12 at stake and would pet no more than 30 per cent of the party popular vole. But the senator confounded them, even before the voting occurred. He went up and down the state shaking hand;, throwing snowballs at kids, making friends with his frank, direct appeal for backing. A I o t of eager though unschooled Democrats were drawn to his banner. The regulars got worried. They opened a headquarters and began (o pour on the coal. The conviction was that Kefauver now might do better than expected in the popular polling but that he would still be blanked on delegates. As it happened, the organization did not go far enough in accommodating itself to the realities. Kefauver got better than 50 per cent of the vote, heating Mr. Truman by close to 5000, and captured all 12 of the delegates. This doesn't mean the President is through. He can have the Democratic nomination any time he speaks for it. But it docs suggest that there is more than ordinary dissatisfaction with the trend of administration affairs in Washington, despite Kefauver's disclaimer on that point. It may indicate that the Democrats would like to see some now faces and hear some new ideas in the top ranks of their party. The readiness with which Now Hampshire citizens took to Kefau- vcr points that way. Since his TV fame had made little impact, there, he was a virtual stranger to the state until he began campaigning. If the President already has made up his mind to run, this e.vent will not likely change his mind. He can argue that it simply reflects the fact Kefauver campaigned and he didn't. Should he be undecided, Kefauver's win might arouse his dander and convince him he must run. Or it might ba taken as the handwriting on the wall, and turn his mind definitely toward retirement. Kefauver is entered in Uie Wisconsin primary April 1 under highly favorable circumstances. He is opposed by two favorite-son slates standing in for Mr. Truman, but the favorite sons are little known and the division of the Truman vote between them seems sure to benefit Kefauver. A week afterward, Kefauver gets a ballot test in populous Illinois, where he has no opposition in the preferential primary. A healthy vote might add to his convention leverage, even though it would assure him no delegates. The Illinois primary is purely advisory, and delegate selections are under the organization (pro-Truman) thumb. To be sure, there is one place where Kcfauver could stumble. In Nebraska's race, also April 1, he is opposed by Senator Kerr of Oklahoma, who is reported to have marked strength in the plains stales. A sharp defeat at Kerr's hands would probably finish Kefauver. But a victory or a narrow loss, combined with good showings in the other states discussed, would p«jD:_Mr. Truman on a real spot. He might find things getting rapidly out of hand. It is not easy to try to pick a successor while some other candidate is running around hanging up clear triumphs at the polls. Consequently, the most definite points that can be made about the Democratic result in New Hampshire are that it suggests a decline in the President's popularity evon among his own parly, and it may help force his hand on the issue of declaring his 1952 intentions. Views of Others Pentagon Press Agents Rep. Eclwmd Hebcrt of LouIHana is angry at the Pentagon press agents. They are "pitchmen," he says.

GllJlOr, D. D. Saint Paul was in his ideas, ideals. and vision amazingly far In ad- ance of his time- On many social matters, such as A'ork, mutual aid, citizenship, and ocial responsibility what Paul v,Tot-e if applicable to the world of cday. Especially is this true of what Paul wrote concerning liberty, of which he had in every nse of glorified conception. The one respect, in Thick Paul was very much a man of his own .ime was in his attitude toward women and their position in the Christian Church. Paul's emmciatinn of what has been called "the far - reaching principle" that in Christ there is neither male nor female (Galatians 3:28) might logically have led htm to a conception of equal- iiy. But there wa^ no suggestion of equality in his injunction about uomen covering their heads (I Corinthians 11) and especially in that about their keeping silence in church. Yet these opinions ol Paul, striding women, bare had a deep influence down to our o\rn times in establishing limitations and prejudices regarding women. The pro- ce,ss of women's emancipation has gone far in some communities. I doubt whether there is anyone today who would claim that there Ls anything un-Christian about woman's bobbing her hair, if she wants to. But in some parts of the Christian Church other of Paul's restrictions are stiU in effect. Women entering and worshipping in church must have the head covered, and when the brilliant woman-preacher. Maude Hoyden, wished to exercise her pulpit gifts she could not do so in her o w n Church of England, but had to find a place in the Congregational Cny Temple in London. Ordained women as pastor* and preachers are now numerous and! TESTIFYING before i <rongr«s- i sional committee which Is considering the administration's request for $7.900,000,000 in this foreiga help, he said: "You cannot look ahead and say i this Job can be done in two years Sj or three years. You have to proceed on an annual basis as we do with our domestic military budget. "The most anyone can say with certainty te that It will *>« necessary to continue for one more year with a program of the present magnitude." Acheson's statement this week must have come as a shock to anyone who, remembering what h* said last year, was hoping taxes would go down in three years. • * • BACK IN 1&47 when the then Secretary of State George Marshall first proposed the Marshal! plan — which was only economic help for IT. S aillies in Europe — relations u-ith Russia were bad but «Mt so bad as they became later. ^ Then in 1&48 when CongrfcM voted the Marshall Plan money, the Statft Department thought the. plan could be completed in lour years. But already in that year relations with Russia had begun bo ^;| take an alarming turn- That year the Communists took over Czechoslovakia in a coup that frightened the West. In 1949 this country and its European allies formed the Atlantic. Pact, which, was hardly more than a gesture since it was not backed by arms. This country didn't begin Its own arming \mtil June, 1950, when th» Communists began their adventure in Korea. This was followed by Gen. Eisenhower's departure for Europe "in 1951 to whip an Atlantic Pact army into shape, • • * IN 1951, THT Marshall Plan ended — at least wider that name — and was succeeded by the Mutual Assistance Program, which meanfc the. United States not only would Grau's administration it was 5200 million. In the last few years, under President Prio Socarras it was J300 million. Batista Initiated Reforms To give credit where credit Is due, not every official has been all crooked.
