PAGE FOURTEEN (.AUis.; THE NATION TODAY Tom Contially Has Been Main. Attraction In Senate for Years Br JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (A'j—The Senate W like a political delicatessen. It has a variety of men and opinions, garnished with dignity and over- eplced with oratory. If thcre'.s a ritow of ham, that's not surprising. Tom Connaliy has been one of Its main attractions for years, a man of wit and rlmrm, and with many moods that he can u^c as he pleases for the effect he wants: gay, finery, furious, comical. He looks more like an tictor than any man in the place, with his straggly white hair filwnys curling over the back of his coNnr. And his clothes are as regular as a cc.stume: dark blue suit, black bow tie, boiled shirt, glistening gold .-itudu, As chairman of the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee he is one of the most important men in the country, It's through his committee that most of this country's foreign program must pa. 1 *-, for a pat or a posting. He's been in Con^roxs 35 years and now he's 74, still active, still bright, and still wishing he could keep his Job. Cut he wits to cotne up for re-election in Texas this yenr and a younger man wants hts seat- New Coi'-L'crence Called Texas' attorney general, 41-yenr- ol d PrJ ce Danl el, has been cam - paignlns for months. Monday the senator called a news conference. He tried to nrn^e what he s:ild •sound casual and matter-of-Inct, like other conferences in the past. But thlfi one was different because he wns different. He was In a new mood, HB was sad, and he couldn't disguise it behind an occasional shaft of wit. He would not run for re-election, he said, The Job of senator, he .said, had become enormous, enough to wear any man down. And although his friends assured him lie could win if he ran, he said, he'd have to campaign hard and he didn't think tt was worth It. He may have been farsightcd in deciding not to rain again because reports from Texas say Daniel had a good chaiice of beatSng the old man U he tried for re-election. One of Thre« Conally is one of three old senators who are like to bridge between the past and the present in the Senate. The other two, also Democrats Uko Conally, are McKeLJar of Tennessee and Hoey of North Carolina, Like Connlly, Hoey U 1A. In length of .service, when compared with Cormally, ho's onty n lx>y. He's been In the Senate eight years. Since his term doesn't end until 1956. this year's elections don't endanger him, He's .strictly from the old school: a wing collar, a flower in his lapel, and always tui English wnlking coat, with pants to match, He alternates between blno and gray. MrKcllar Is Dean MrKcltar is dean of the three in age and .service. He's S3 and has been In Congress 41 years. McKellar has neither the wit nor charm of Connnlly, He ha.s a famous temper and a.s the years trudge over his head he seems to talk less although he's chairman of the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee. McKcllar Is in the fiame I be as Connnlly. He's up for re-election this year and a younger man is busily trying to un.wat him. This is Congressman Albert Gore, 45, who hrfs been canvassing the state for months. McKelLir'fi office sntcl yesterday he Is definitely seeking re-election. But this hiw not been rx gocd year for olcltimcrs, ns Coruvally understands. After all, the top ohlUmer of them all bowed out Just a couple of weeks ago when President Tru- mnn said he was through after a lifetime in politics. Stars and Stripes to Celebrate 10th Birthday Next Friday By KICHARD K. O'MALLKY DARMSTADT, Qerninny A"Jh— Stars and Stripes, the soldier newspaper (hat came to war and .stayed on for R jittery pence, eclebrnles its 10th birthday this Friday. It will be quite nn anniversary, witH a special, big edition lor Us T 0,000 sub scr 1 be rs In Kurop e n nil n ceremony at Its headquarters here. "Stripes" got ILs World War H start in England in l£M2 r when four G. I.'s decided to revive the Jinme and tradition of n soldiers' newspaper which served the AEF in their fathers' day, They thought It would quietly fold when the shooting was over. But they didn't reckon with the news- hungry American serviceman. Or the fact that troops would be here long pnst the time everyone thought all American forces would leave Europe. Those staying on clnn.ored for news. They wanted to see what was going on in the sports world at home and they wanted the funnies. So Stars and Stripes stayed In business to meet the demand. There was one period when the newspaper neared the rocks. That was in 19-16 when the Army, which had underwritten the enterprise, decided the paper should pay its own way. Replacement depots were Jammed with soldiers going home. Circulation t li 1 n n e d. "Stripes" took ou the Job of circulating AiiicT.cnn books and mnKfizhn and received a tremendous financial boost. Today Starfi nnd Stripes Is, literally, a multimillion-dollar business. Nobody makes any profit from the newspaper, its revenue goes back into Its operation and into the Army welfare fund. In ]ts wartime heyday "Stripes" published 25 editions for U. S. troops scattered over the earth. Dally circulation was about seven million. Only thn Eiivo]>eHn nnd Far Eastern editions survive. The European paper employs about 1,000 people who work in a group of building. 1 * here built for n propo.scii nejipeJin l;nidfn(, r fie There arc \~' newsmen on the editorial stuff. Many of them trained on American dailies OS 1 wire services. The Army docs not censor Stars nnd Stripes, but it keeps Col. Hcnvy J. RiclUer of Kipoti, Wis., as editor-in-chief.
