Meaning Number <l says mess can mean, "A confused, inharmonious, or (lisiijjreeiible mixture of tilings; n med. ley; a hodgepodge; hence, a. siuiutiun resulting from liltindGfiiig or from misunderstanding; a state of confusion, embarrassment, or the like; a muddle; a botch." That's what we mean by mess, Mr. President. All those tilings. And now that we understand each other, we hojie, what's going to be done between now and Nov. 'I about cleaning up thai mess — M-K-S-S, that is? Never Ride an Arab Bus An ilcm from Africa reports the royal Air Force had to fly food lo 27 Arabs in a bus which had broken down in the Sahara (leserl. The bus had only been out of kilter eight ityys, so it's hard to figure what the KAF was in such a hurry about. Maybe they don't know Arabs- No rigbl-lhinliijig Arab would hoard n bus without a goat or two, a couple of chickens, water, some makings for couscous, and a lumen of dates. They go prepared for anything. They're not like us, who can fly from here to Honolulu with nothing but a toothbrush and n pair of clean socks. The age of science is upon us, travel is broadening, and he who travels fast travels far. But he'd better keep out of Arab buses or he's liable to starve to death. I Here's Meaning of M-E-S-S Mr. Truman; S-E-E It Now? We're all nwnre of (lie psychic phenomenon whereby n man can make himself see only what he wants to see, hear only • what.>.h|B." wnnls .to hear, nnd remember only Svhal hd wants to remember. So when President Truman says he is unaware that any mess exists iu Washington we must be patient and tolerant nnd remember about psychic phenomena. But at the same time we happily are free to point out that we think he is wrong, dead wrong. And by "we" is meant all the Republicans, nearly all the Democrats, ami Adlai Stevenson, who has flatly declared that a mess does exist in Washington and that he is going to clean it up. Furthermore, newspaper readers and the radio and television audience — lacking tlie psychic compulsion to forget certain things — recall all too vividly the big Washington stories about corruption, graft, bribery, influence peddling. And they recall jnst as well tlie ineffectual measures taken by the administration to stamp out these evils. The people have no reason to want to forget these things. On the contrary — shocked and deeply offended by them — the people have every reason to want to remember them- And they want positive, determined steps to eradicate them. There is just one more point lo take tip bore and thai is that maybe Pivsidi'iit Truman doesn't know what tlie word "mess" means. You find people sometimes who go through life with an imperfect understanding of a fairly common word. Kike, for instance, you'll sometimes find a fellow who thinks a tycoon is one of those big storms out around the South Pacific, thai a typhoon is a big, fat captain of industry, that a Inift'on is some- i thing you jab into whales, and a bar- : poon is a jokester. Webster's New International Diclionary, a fat, authoritative tome weighing as much a.s a bucket of rocks, has a whole i list of meanings for the word "mess." Most, of them have lo do with meals, particularly as applied to the ones seamen eat. That's not the meaning we have in mind, Mr. President- Meaning Number 2 ,«ays mess can mean the milk given by a cow at one milking. Not that one, either, Mr. President. Nobody's sore about the milk some cow gave down iu Washington. Meaning Number y says mess can mean the food given to a beast at one Views of Others A Nadir Of Futility The bristling debute In Ihe UN Economic and Social Council over who invented what in Russia and America .seemed marked by the fine art ot flapdoodle. Is this sort of nasty, 7>idtUu!g controversy the for which the United Nations was created? Granted that the Soviet's .spokesmen have been Irritating wllh their fnnlnstlc claims of invention "firsts," of which history has no record, why make spiked retort, at their derogatory re•.narks of "waiiie-iron" genius? Perhaps a burp recitation of facts might be judicious lo counter propaganda effects of tal] Hed statements. But Irate argument on cither side is n waste of lime and purpose. After nit, the contributions., of an Edison and Shostakovich nre widely- enjoyed all over Uie world, nnd recognition of tln'e , fact might help bring closer the peace for which a harried globe so yearns. —St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Cadogan's Boast The British Broadcasting Corporation, a government monopoly, boasts of its role os n pioneer hi television. It has been offering television programs since before tlie Nnzis hum bed London. The BBC's appointed chairman. Sir Alexander Cnttognn, confessed in London the other day that he has never .seen a TV program. He explained that he has been waiting for "technical and program improvements." Strange are the ways of socialized cuterpr^e. We can think uf no better way to bar technical advances in an industry than lo hand H over to one who won't even look at Us product. —Dulln.s Morning News SO THEY SAY Attorney General McGranery Donated This" SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION (AMERICANA) Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD Peter ft/son's Washington Column — Civil Service Employees Safe No Matter Who Wins in November WASHINGTON —(NEA)— The Lieut, ot the housccloaning ami cnernl exodus of tired bureau- •als from Washington on the day ,c new man lakes over us Presi-i cnt .seems lo have been conslder- bly exaggerated.

H would include the 0000 foreign .service officers of the State Department and the 11,000 foreigners working as chauffeurs, servants ind minor clerks in ul S. agencies abroad. What's left Is a gross of 25,000 federal jobs subject to presidential appointment in one way or another. But a new President can by no means accept the resignations of that many job holders when lie steps into the White House and replace them with his own buddies. Many of the appointments made by President Truman and by President Roosevelt before him are for life-time jobs or for a definite period of years. Only a limited number of .these Jobs may become vacant in 1953, due to death, retirement or rcsignatioti.

He was spotted in a Long Island summer stock play by a movie latent scout after serving a hitch in the U. S. Marines and attending college under the G. I. Bill of Rights. Carey replies to the what's-your advice-to-young-aciors question: "Let Hollywood bring you out from the New York stage. In Hollywood an extra !s an extra nil his life. It's too tough to break through." Lydta Clarke—By pitching in to help her husband, Charlton lies on, make a screen test for "Come Back, Little Sheba," the brunet jeauty landed the feminine lead in "Atomic City" after a-big roEi in "The Greatest Show on Earth." She's been Mrs. Heston for nine years and is a Broadway and TV star in her own right. Afraid of the Hollywood prejudice against actresses who are the wives of top male stars? Not Lydin, .who says, "Our careers were always separate. Surely, they're not going to penalize me because I'm Chn,rlton's wife." Out of the Blue Carole Matthews—A zippy blonde \vitb comedy skill who stepped in as Dan Dailey's dancing-and-slng- ing partner in U-I's "The Great Companions" when Kyle McDonnell left the cast in a cloud of temperament. Carole started up the golden .stairs as a disc jockey in Chicago, became a photographic model in New York and was brought to Holly v:ood for Paramount's "No Man of Her Own" after a talent scout bombarded the studio with telegrams about her star possibilities. Gene Barry—Paramount's white hope and a click already in "Atom ic City" is this strong-chinned. American-guy type, who will seen in "War of the Worlds" "Pleasure Island" before the year is out. Gene began his career on the New York stage, vetoed movie bids left and right, but finally drove out to Hollywood witli his family after a stock engage merit last year. Within a few hours, a movie agent, Paul Wilkins, hac lined up a screen test. Hurry-Up Career John Lupton—Katharine Hep burn played Miss Columbus in John's career by calling him to MGM's attention when she brought her "As You Like It" touring company to Los Angeles. A blond, boyish type, John finished his run-oMhc-play contract, (hen reported to Hollywood for a role in "Shadow in the Sky" with Nancy Davis, The Army tagged him as he was about to so into a role in "Westward the Women," but now he's back with a strong part in "Rogues March." Anne Bancroft—It's swift etar- dom (or Anne of the Olivia da Havilland-ish face, as Mrs. 8ol Hurok in Pox's "Tonight We Sing," Anne was plucked from New York television where she was known as Ami Marno (her real name is Anne Italiano) and sha spurned earlier contract offers from Goldwyn, Warners and Columbia "because these days young actresses don't want to start in pictures. Everybody wants to make a reputation in TV first."

In today's hand, for example, it the ace of diamonds, and return to dummy by leading ^ trump to the queen in order to take the rest of the tricks with the established diamonds. See what would happen if South made the mistake of drawing three rounds of trumps at the very beginning. East would refuse (he first diamond trick, but would win the second with the jack. He woulc then return a spade. If South ruffed in dummy, he would thereby use up the last en try to dummy's diamonds.
