A lot of them have therefore become little more than collectors of BurCacc impressions, and rather jaded collectors at that. When they supplement these with the surface gleanings of others, they erect a shaky pyramid that can topple at the first real brentli of reality. There is no cure for this condition hut hard work. Recaiisc tho world is harder to understand does not mean we can abandon the project. The manpower and the facilities for ^rappliiiff with .this task in America are unexampled. Instead of talking events (o death before they occur, our experts oiiKhl lo spend their time pcaiming thoroughly the groundwork for those events — talking to all the people they ran, reviewing ]> history where it has a bearing, getting nnd keeping the feel of the country where the events will be made. This .sounds .simple enough, but it's become a rather uncommon practice. Less talk and more action on the observers' front wouldn't eliminate fore- easting errors. But it might nv.ike the surprises less frequent. Unlomented Pgssing Representative Nankin, Mississippi Democrat who has served in the House of Representatives for 32 years, finally has succumbed to defeat. No ordinary adversary ever was able to beat him, and no extraordinary ones wanted to try. But the 1950 census took a House sent away from Mississippi and forced a congregational redistriding that put Rankin and Representative A hermit hy in direct competition this year. Rankin wasn't equal to that test. It is unlikely that the American people will mourn his departure from the political scene as the regrettable loss of a statesman. Much Talk, Little Study Equal Prediction Failures It'» a commonplace of the stock market th»t big events are anticipated dnys and sometimes weeks in advance. Thus discounted ahead of time, the events usually produce little shock when they actually occur. Lately some of tlie experts judging the national and world scene have been going heavily into this business of anticipating things to come. With this difference: they haven't always been sr> successfull in measuring the prospects, and consequently the actual events have often dealt something of a blow. This being an election year, it is probably a painful time to remind the experts of the fiasco of 1048, when President Truman upset the carefully calculated thoughts of most veteran observ- ' ers, and won re-election. Since then a good many other events ; have been misjudged. The ranting Rus: sians were figured lo make a stir at the : San Francisco Japanese pence treaty -ses- i sion last fall. They didn't. General Kisi enhower's June return lo this country was foreseen as almost certain to touch off a prairie five. H didn't. Kxanvplos are legion. I'crhaps these discrepancies bet ween ii forecast and event wouldn't arouse too much concern if the erring observers simply acknowledged mistakes and vowed they wouldn't happen again. Rut pome of the experts insist on .blaming the participants in the events, instead of themselves, when things don't, work out as they predicted. A few go so far as to distort Die story of nn ai'tunl event lo fit what proves lo lie their own far-fetched anticipation of it. So we get some pretty tortured versions of current history these days. Why? ' . l Certainly it never was easy to foretell activities in the realm of practical affairs. There is no accurate barometer for human behavior. But over the decades some pretty sound guesses «~ere made of what was to come. Nowadays the confusion of affairs has vastly complicated (lie task of predicting. That very complexity is the prime excuse for error by the experts. They can cover only so much ground themselves,, and thereafter are dependent upon the findings of others. But the difficulties of digging for Views of Others Pay Taxes With Waste It may bo tHat you can^ake enough money wiling wnsts pnpcr to pnj- your taxes. And the government, always foiling over its bureaus to out-rlo lUelf, will help. A woman U'ho wrote a Feclorrvl bureau asking for Information on some pimple nintter was surprised at whnt she pot in reply, she reccivrti n whole stack of publications which, weighed on her kitchen scales, nmouutcit to-sl.x pounds! But that's not all. One covcmmeiH agency offered to put her on its rrpuhr mailing list to receive various monthly publications. See the possibiiHy? Ask enough questions from the government and save the printed material you get in reply. When it comes tux paying time, sell the waste paper anrl you'll lie getting: at least part of your taxes paid for in waste paper which you paid for In Ihe hcginninp. It sounds confuting hut that's (lie way it has to sound with the government Involved. SO THEY SAY 'Ahoy, Adlqi!"

Bob turned to the crew find gleefully shouted: "Boy, what a memory she's got! 1 ' But that's mild compared to =ome of the other grigs they have pulled on me during the years. When we made "Road to Sinpa- pnre," for example, they introduced me to a man who was supposed to be a. correspondent foe one nf the lending French newspapers. They told me he had nn assignment to write a profile of me and urged me to be nice (o him because he was "one of the \ most influential newspapermen of lurope." I spent the entire lunch hour «id the rest of the afternoon giv- him my life story. When he hnd, he thanked me politely, :is?ert my band and then told .me o drop dead! Needless to say, the 'Frenchman" was one of their old •audeville pals and a professional ribber. Downbeat Dromedary They still remind me of the rick they played on me during .he filming of "Road to Morocco." he film that featured the talking camels. One afternoon we linlshed ihooting early and went to the pro jection room lo view the "rushes" (film we had shot on previous days>.

Most of my guests were ready to run for their lives, too, because right behind her came a huge bear. Naturally, it wasn't a real bear but I had a tough time convincing my friends. Bing and Bob knew about the paity nnd had paid the man who played the animal in the film to visit us in costume. They have ribbed me unmercifully about my sarongs but tho funniest gag they ever staged along that line occurred during the filming of "Road to Zanzibar." I was get ing a little fed up with sarongs by that time and had indicated my desire to shed the garment once and for all. I walked into my dressing room one morning and found several huge signs, all claiming that I was unfair to the US\V—"Union of Sarong Wearers."
