Proposed Probe of Federal Agencies Is Healthful Sign From Rep. Charles Wolvei-lon, New Jersey Republican, -comes one of- the • first healthful signs of what il mtaus to vote in a new regime in Washington. •He proposes a sweeping inquiry into all federal regulatory agencies that h»vt been/developed or expanded in llie past 20 years. ' Thua the Civil Aeronautics Board, the Federal Communications Commission, • the Federal Power Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, the Interstate Commerce Commission and many another agency may be due for a few vigorous swipes from the Republican broom. That broom must not be wieldtd vindictively. It must not be a weapon employed lo destroy useful federal operations. The agencies that may come under scrutiny are most certainly all here to stay. But it is entirely fitting — indeed, necessary — that their work and their personnel be examined closely and put to acid test. For 20 years they have grown and grown, seldom feeling in all that span the corrective lash of independent criticism effectively applied. There is no part of government that ought to be frte for too long- from the cold eye of the outside appraiser. Agencies cushioned against such appraisal are likely to grow soft and slack, to substitute arbitrary, even capricious decision for fair judgment ,to step over the bounds of legal authority. Thtse agencies — government itself — free of real challenge, safe behind the protective wall of uninterrupted power, lend to devote more and more time to defending or cloaking their errors. Tn time they operate perhaps less in the interest of justice for nil than in the interest of self-justification. Of each element in our vast federal establishment we ought now to'ask: What functions does it perform? Are all o£ these useful and propfer? -U some are not, should they be abandoiibd or given to another agency? How efficiently and economically does it operate? What improvements may be proposed to increase its effectiveness as A servant of the American people Are Us 'judgment!! fair or biased? Does it per- haps'protect the very segment of U. S. , society it was created to regnlale? - If a Republican Congress can conduct a calm, .searching investigation »long these Hues, Rimed always at con- (AMC.) COUTtrER NEW* •tructivt goals, ii c«n givtf »n early an- §w«r—in on« »ph«rb kt.towt—to those who charge that the GOP i» inevitably a wrecking crew, 11 can demonstrate that efficient government need not be inhumane government. Give Controls Their Due H is nol incorrect lo declare thai inflation is a reality in tht American Ufa of today. Some prices'are still rising, and some groups still feel the pain when it's time to buy. Nevertheless, it would be erroneous to suggest that there has been a great, inflationary upsurge in the last year and a half. Most of the bi# rise look place, before that lime •— after World War II ended, and again after war in Korea began. Since March, 1951, Llie overall upward movement of pricts has been relatively small. Economists generally do not credit price controls for this fact, though they may have played a role. Jlost credit is given to technical but important changes in federal banking operations which have tended to restrict the flow of easy money into the bloodstream of the economy. No need here to dwell on those changes, except to say they allow the Federal Reserve Board to adopt a tougher attitude on the purchase price of government bonds issued by' the Treasury. The Itsson here is that, while all the furor over inflation surrounds the issue of controls, it has proved a tighter lid on government financial operations that really has slowed the upward spiral of prices. Views of Others British Move to Right a Wrong Socialists have been enjoying the smug assumption thai once they have imposed their economic "reforms" on a nation, that nation Is stuck with them, cannot shake them off, even it the Socialist. 4 ! are voted out of office. And undoubtedly the reversal of socialistic movements, especially such moves as nationalization of gfea't and baste Industries, presents problems of tremendous difficulty. It is not so very difficult for an anti-Socialist administration which takes over from Socialists to check Socialism at the point to which it lias then advanced. But it Is very hard to bHckjip. The Conservative GoVenVment of Great Britain Is determined, however,-that some of the wrongs committed , by the Socialists who had power in that country for six years nuist, be retracted. The Conservatives have attacked the problem of the greatest wrong — an economic and a moral wrong --- 'at the Socialists, the nationalization of the nation's Iron and steel industry, and have now announcer) plans lo push for reiwal of (his monstrosity by Easter, , The British Conservatives are showing 'unusual political courage In thus proceeding with their plan to turn back to private owners llie iron and steel industry plants which were taken from Ui«n by the Socialists. ' The Conservatives of course will be viciously attacked by politicians and propagandists who specialize in stirring the emotions of the envious, In agitating class against class. Charges of giving "Ihe 1 people's property" to the rich will no doubt fill the air. But In selling the iron and steeljiroperties back to private owners, the government will merely be restoring lo Ihose owners properties which were stolen from them In the name of the people. Believers in free enterprise In the United States and everywhere- else should be encouraged by the example of courage being shown by the British Conservatives. If their effoil Is successful, a major victory over the world-wide menace of Social- Ism will have been won. —Chattanooga News-Free Pres*.

Still collecting »2000 a week as a CBS contract star, Ken's blueprints for the future Include several Ideas for himself—I'd like to do a nice Intimate, sititag down, lalking thing like Arthur Godfrey" —plus holding production reins on a telefilm series, "The Marshal's Daughter," starring wide - eyed Laurie Anders .as a feminine,masked Lone Ranger. "I don't wont to do anoiher variety show." Ken told me. "They're too expensive. Our show wound up costing »93,COO a .week. We were priced out or the market." Ken financed and produced the pilot reel of "The Marshal's Daughter" and he's hailing It with: "It's the first new idea since Bronco Billy jumped on a horse.

And here's in eyebrow-raiser: Twenty years ago Art was a seaman on the same line. His million-dollar venture won't interfere with his TV-radio "House Party" show or his "People Are Funny" broadcasts. WASHINGTON —(NBA)— When Harry S. Truman first became Pre.^'rlent after the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt, he realized almost immediately how little he had been prepared for It. He safd (hen and he still sticks to Ihe idea, : llml he would do everything he could to White House lop job. •Perhaps the most complicated lesson which Uic new President will huvc to learn will be what his powers are as U.S. chief executive. These presidential powers are now subject to numerous changes. This is due to the signing of the peace treaty with Japan ant! me making- of a pence contract wilh western Germany lasl fall. By these acts, many of Ihe so- called war' powers were due to come to and end automatically. Congiess has renewed many of these powers In three omnibus extension bills. But Ihe most recent of Ihese extensions runs out on April 30, 1953. Before that time these powers will have to be renewed again, or the new President will lose them. There wprc over BOO, of these emergency powers during wartime. Some 250 have been repealed by Congress, but Die other 350 are still on the books. Many of them are considered necessary as long as the Korean war emergency continues. But it will be up to the new President. to decide if he wants to keep these powers or let them rirte. What they show now is how com-1 plicated the President's job really I is and why it will take any new man time to break in. Some I'owers Can Be Delegated Here are some examples of powers which the President can delegate to subordinates. -. .One presidential power is to make exceptions to the law banning the sale of Tennessee' Valley Authority munitions products to allied nations. Another gives the President power .to.order inspection of war plants and,auditing of their books. Another permits the destruction of official records abroad in time of emergency. The President may order provisions for entertainment and education of members of the U. S, armed forces. He may order the operation of farms for Ihe provisioning of U. S. troops abroad. He may order continuance of allowances to dependents of servicemen missing in action. He may prohibit pholographlng and sketching of military installations. In time of emergency the President may also order additional restrictions on movement of aliens into or out of the U.S. He may suspend the peacetime provisions for purchase of discharge from the armed services. He may seize foreign vessels in U.S. waters. What the above partial iist of presidential powers indicates mole than anything else is the need for reorganisation and simplification of the Executive branch of government. But here the new President is faced with anoiher headache. The 1948 act authorizing the President to recommend reorganization plans for congressional approval or veto expires March, 31, 1953. ... Plenty of Reorganiiing To Do There is still plenty of reorganizing for the new President to do, although a great deal has been done in the last four years. Ex- President Herbert Hoover's - commission on reorganization, after 18 months' study of 65. federal agencies, made 281 recommendations. some dispute about how many : of these recommendations have been put into effect. The Senate Committee on Government Operations say 90 per cent of'them have been acted upon. The Citizens' Committee for the Hoover Report says only 70 per cent of (lie 281 recommendations were acted upon favorably. Savings effected to date are estimated at from a minimum of $33 million a year to a maximum of $1.24 billion. ; President Truman submitted 41 general reorganization plans to Congress. These plans covered numerous Hoover recommendations. Thirty of these reorganization plans were allowed to go inlo effect. Two more were changed to meet congressional objections and went into effect later. ' Nine of the reorganization plans were disapproved by Congress — eight vetoed by the Senate and one vetoed by (he House. Those plans rejected involved a proposed new Department of Welfare; the present Departments of the Treasury, Agriculture and Post Office; Interstate Commerce Commission, Federal Communications Commission, National Labor Relations Board, Reconstruction ^Finance Corporation. .The new President might rerecommond these organizations as well as many others. the- Doctor Says— Written tor NBA Service By JEntVI.N P. JORDAN, M. D. It Is really a most discouraging thing to hnve to write about certain diseases year after year, and to say that no great progress has been made lit conquering them. Among such condtllons Is n disease of the skin known ns psoriasis, pronounced with the "p" Eilonl. In this common skin disease the lesions are most frequent at or about the elbows. Vnces. and In the scalp and lower back. Although llie skin is disfigured, the is not dangerous to life or general health. The Involved areas are usually bright red, level will) the skin surface, and scaly. There is n sharp dividing line between the normal skin and that which is affected by the disease. When psoriasis slarls suddenly, severe itching is common. In the more chronic cnses (which 'are most frequent) Ihere Is lime or no Itching. These portions of ihc skin which have been involved for » long time generally become covered with a Ihlck scale. If this scale Is scraped off. tiny points of bleeding appear underneath. Unfortunately, the cause of psoriasis, like so many diseases of the skin. Is not Known. The condition frequently comes in several members of the same family and Ihls familiar tendency has been noted by many students of the disease. Aslo. psoriasis Is frequently BS- soci.ited wllh certain kinds of arthritis, though Just what the connection Is when they do occur together has arounsed difference of opinion. Persons between 10 and 30 years old ara the most likely to be »t- Ucked. Th« cmse la almost cer- tainly not an infection. There is also a tendency for the skin lesions of psoriasis to coinc and go over » period of time. May Worsen Again Many treatments are being used for psoriasis. Most of them bring about good results, at least temporarily. However, it Is all too common for people with psoriasis to get better for a lime after treatment and then to get worse again, and if tho same treatment Is irled again, they often do nol respond at nil. Many studies of this disease are going on and It would be strange indeed if some fine naw treatment is not found within a few years. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Don't Be Afroid to Gamble at Bridcjt By OSWALD JACOBT Written for NBA Service For the next few weeks Monday will be bridge lesson day, and I'll discuss bidding according to the point-count method so that beginners and average players can learn how Ihe experts bid. On the olhcr days of Ihc week I'll follow my usual practice of trying to mix entertainment with instruction. Just In case you're not familiar with the point-count, here it. Is: count 4 points for each ace In your hand; 3 for each king; 1 for each queen; 1 for each Jack. There are 10 points In each suit, and 4o:poinls In the entire deck. You »nd yovir partner usually need 26 points to make a game: 33 points for a small slam; 37 lor a grand slain. In today's hand South must open the bidding since he has a count of H points. Some experts would open the bidding with one club NORTH A A653 V762 * J 107 4 AK6 n WEST * J981 #KS * 10 7 4 J EAST * 107 •/J9S » AQ843 SOUTH (D) *KQ4 W AK 104 « 982 SMtt WMI 1 N.T. Paw Pw> Pact Op«t*n« >e*4—*>1 I**r»fc *a*t t * Pass 1 N.T. Pan even though this is it three-card suit, other experts would prefer the more natural opening bid of one heart. ; In either case, North responds with one spade, and South must make the rebld of one no-trump. This rebld shows blaanced distribution and no more than IS polnls (If Soiilh had more than 16 points, he would find some olher rebld even If he had to "invent" one.) Norih has a count of 12 points and therefore knows that there should be a reasonable play for game if South has about 14 points. His jump to game is mildly optimistic, but not unreasonable. Declarer must win the lirst trick in dummy wilh the ace of spades and Immediately return a low heart. South finesses the ten of hearls at the second (rick, partly James and Pamela Mason, television's first husband-and-wife actlng-writing-dlrecting team, are about to hit the jack[x>t with their lalf-hour telefilm series.

Screen glamor babes who have reputations for being difficult to photograph aren't in the same league with Marilyn Monroe. I buzzed Cameraman Milton Krasner, who photographed her last two films, on his problems with her. Outside of keeping the censors happy, Krasner confessed he has no problems: in the hope that the finesse will succeed (as it will if East has Doth the queen and jack) and partly in the hope that the suit will break favorabl}'. West wins Ihe second trick with the queen of hearts and can defeat in contract only if he makes the inspired switch to the king of diamonds. If West fails to find the diamond shift, declarer will win the return and make his contract with three spades, three hearts and three clubs. As may be seen, the contract is a trifle on the risky side, but every experienced player can remember far riskier hands that he has. played and won. "It'i a clncb.
