Wisconsin Seems to Feel McCarthy Method Justified In the weeks ahead, no American citizen anywhere and certainly no cand- 'idate for major national office can ea, oape giving sober thought to the resounding primary victor)' scored in Wisconsin by Senator McCarthy. ;' The senator won real popular approval. Triumph by » margin of 325,000 can't be dismissed as just the work of an effective state Republican organization.'Vote totals indicate, in fact, that many Democrats crossed over to sup'" port McCarthy, as they are allowed to do under Wisconsin law. The reverse had been expected. Plainly, the people of Wisconsin are not seriously impressed with the ceaseless attacks made upon McCarthy over the past two years. Critics who have charged thai he has tarred many innocent people while not really accomplishing anything seem not to have made impact in his home area. To judge from the primary, the voters view these critisicms as either be- s/de the point or unfair and exaggerated. Not uncommonly, the people of any particular state resent attacks by outsiders against one of their own. Senator Taft reaped a harvest of votes on this score in Ohio two years ago. And no man has been more steadily assailed from the outside than McCarthy. Wisconsin citizens evidently feel. ton. that communism in all its forms is a hateful thing which must be swiftly and efficiently eradicated wherever found. In this they may very well he joined by the overwhelming majority of Americans. There appears to be slim patience with those who approach the task with a "soft" attitude. When President Truman labeled the 1947 Alger Hiss investigation a "red herring, he gave the impression he wasn't too troubled over subversives in government. Others in his administralinn also belittled probers who were striking real pay dirt. By their cnsualness. they set the sta.ire for men who would attack the evil more aggressively. McCarthy was only one such man. but he ha? managed to convince millions of his countrymen that he is the outstanding foe of Communists in government. Once deep fears are stirred, people perhaps are irresistibly drawn to the support of anyone who seems devoted to removing the cause of those fears. They may not worry too greatly over the techniques used in attacking what they fear. They brush these aside, intent only on what they see as the "great good" — the fighl against communism. The Wisconsin verdict, therefore, is almost surely a positive aasertion of support for the man who, to millions, is the symbol of the fight against internal enemies. The voters there seemed to say that McCarthy's objectives are good, and that in consequence the means he uses to roach thorn are unimportant. All Wisconsin voters get a chance in November to ratify or reverse that decision. And some day all America may have to face the same choice. Pennontitis Epidemic The September madness is upon us again. Baseball pennant races often seem to be settled in August, but the notion is a delusion. When September rolls around, the front-runners get nervous and they start losing. The heel-doggers take heart and close in. Of laic years, these scraps have been going right down to the wire. Last season the Brooklyn Dodgers blew a 13- game lead, wound up in a tie with New York Giants and then lost the litle to their arch-enemies in a three-game playoff. It hasn't exactly happened the same way this year, but it could. The Giants once were more than 10 games behind the Dodgers, but now they're snapping close al heel. For the Dodgers, September appears to be the time of the great sickness. They just find il hard to win. Over in the American League, the New York Yankees, though pale shad- o\ys of their former selves, were ticketed as sure things a few weeks ago. But now they too are being pushed in a neck and neck race with the Cleveland Indians. The Indians threaten annually, but in the past they never have managed to remember who was cliamp when play- ling the loweier clubs. They have a raft -,of games this time with the last-place Tigers. Will history repeal itself, or will the Indians now rise up and tomahawk the weak brethren who have been thwarting thorn these many seasons? Views of Others Where The Money Goes II you habitually have too much month left at the end of your money, it may be some consolation to know that you Jiave plenty of company. A survoy of the U:'BrBureau of Labor statistics shows "the average American aity family" spending about 6% — or $100 per year — more than Its income after personal taxes. This means resort to such devices as dipping into savings or going in debt.' This conclusion was drawn from a survey covering 10,813 families in 91 cities, large and small. The average American family is not exactly struggling to eke out a bare existence limited to absolute necessities, though. Or, to put it dit- ferently, we have come to regard as necessities things which were unknown In earlier ages, and which afe still luxuries beyond the reach of most is many other lands. The survey showed that the average family's housing bill, including fuel, light and refrigeration, look 15 % of Us income. Food and alcoholic beverages accounted for 30~. Another 53^ went for "automobiles, television sets, refrigerators, other household appliances, doctor and hospital bills, tobacco, recreation and transportation." It appears a bit inappropriate anri irrelevant to lump essentials like rtoclors 'bills with such things as television soli; a brrakdown here would be enlightening. But the statistics at least confirm the notion that a goodly part ot the American's income goes not for bread alone, but (or things that contribute to comfort, convenience and pleasure. There things are appreciated hy Americans sufficiently to cilp jnlo ravings or go In debt in order to have them. —Montgomery Advertiser SO THEY SAY 'Testing—1 Billion, 2 Billion, 3 Billion , Peter EC/SOFT'S Washington Column — James McGranery May Lose Job Before His Justice Cleanup Ends WASHINGTON — (NEA) — i So cleaning up the the t allowing and encouraging congres.

Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD ' \ HOLLYWOOD — (NBA)— BEhind ner lot—would curl your hair, the Screen: It's make the grade as a dramatic actress or bust in the case of Gale Bobbins. Gale wants to rest her singing voice long enough to try the Duse racket, and It looks like she's going to get her chance. The offers to make like Greer and Jennifer have been coming In, she told me, since the release of Columbia's "The Brigand." 1 n which she plays her first straight role. "I really haven't done anything important in Hollywood until now," she declared, "jiist, chucking Red Skelton under the chin and making eyes at Fred Astaire." What about that see-right- through.thc-skin dress she wears in "The Brigand"? 'I admt t was transparent." Gale said. "The censors came around every day while I was wearim; it. They could see my whole body through the material, b\it they couldn't do a thing about " How about that?" If 20th Century-Fox gives him the green light, Gary Merrill will do a Broadway play, "The Fragile Fox." The play, once owned by the late John Garfield. is a war story about a lieutenant who shoots his captain. Benny Can't Afford It Jock Benny has finally decided to retire from the screen—a good seven years after release of his last feature film. Jack's reason: Nita Naldl Is the latest Etleat screen star to try for a comeback. She's also up for a role In th» stage play, "In Any Language." That's the play with the odd parallel to a topical international rc» mance. Bell Sisters Toll on Film The warbling Bell isters hevs been set for a Columbia filmusl- cal, to roll In January. Olivia de Havilland's explanation of her four-year absence from tho screen: "I'd rather be forgotten than remembered in a bad picture." Hatlie McDaniel, whose illness depleted her life's savings, is now at the Motion Picture Country Home, which is supported by members of tile fil mindustry. The ailing Oscar winner is still hoping to make a complete recovery and resume her "Beaulah" role. Shelley Winters has just left lha Jaithful press agent who publicized her long before her click In "A Double Life." How that Richard Greene geta , wound! One night v.'ith Mona Free- ' man, the next with Lady Sylvia. Ashley. The word's out that Lena Horn* 'I simply cnnnot afford to make | is shedding the bi? agency that's bad picture." "The Horn Blows at Midnight" was released in 1945 and Jack hasn't starred in a movie since. He told me: "Now, with television. I doubt that I ever will. Making movies is a full-time job. You can't do, it and radio and TV at one time and be successful In all three. And failure in one field hazards your chances in the others." Jack plays a bit, as himself, In Betty Hutton's new film, "Somebody Loves Me." but he did it only as a favor to his long-time pal, Producer Bill Perlberg. Author Norman Katkov's forthcoming biography of Fanny Brice will tell this anecdote: When Billy Rose was gallivanting around with Eleanor Holm in 1939, Fanny stayed put In Hollywood, keeping her counsel. She. said not a word until one day, irked at the gossip that Billy was leaving her, she asked a friend: "What does Billy see in that Eleanor Holm?
