' 'PAGE TWO BLYTHEVFLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW! THUBSDAY, MARCH », 19W The Notion Today: The Loyalty Issue Uncle Sam's Loyalty Program Soon Will Be Two Years Old B.v JamM Marlotr 4- WASHINGTON, March 9. (/!•) — The government's loyalty program Is three years old this month. Under It, 182 of the government's 2,000,000 employes have been fired for disloyalty. An additional 2.47G quit while under FBI Investigation or — having been investigated — before government officials could make a decision as to their loyalty or disloyalty. Some Republicans, like Senator McCarthy of Wisconsin and Senator Malone of Nevada, say they still are not satisfied with the program. ' Right' now McCarthy Is chnrging there still are Communists or Communist sympathizers In the government. Truman Set Up Check President Truman by executive order set up the loyalty Investigation program March 22, 1947. This was at a time when relations with Russia wew . wretched and Congressmen were calling for a loyalty check. This was the program: All government, employes not already checked for loyalty were to be checked over. They had to fill out forms' giving the history of their lives for .the previous 10 years. These forms went to the. FBI which checked them against Information in the FBI files. If anything suspicious wa.s found, the FBI then started a full-scale investigation of the individual. Of course, information given the government about an employe would bring an FBI Investigation, too. Tha results of the FBI Investigation went to a three-man loyalty board set up In each government agency. If the FBI report made an em- ploye's loyalty seem questionable, the board held hearings. If then the agency loyalty board thought,the man should be fired, he could appeal to the agency head. For instance to the secretary of state. If the agency head upheld hts board and ordered the man fireti, the man could make one last appeal: To the loyalty review board, a 21-man board appointed by the President. If this board, after hearing the man's case, decided the disloyalty fndings against him were justified he was fired. There was no other appeal. found tn his favor, he was safe. (This loyalty review board has restored to their Jobs 134 employes who appealed to It.) Of the 182 fired for, disloyalty »lnce 1947, about 106 had been working for the government some time. The remaining 16 were newly hired people Altogether the. FBI fit ItjtoUmy to mak'e » fun, jftafy^*^ 1 !* e <" v " Malone I? Dlssitlsflfd Senator Malone is riot satisfied with the set-up of the present Iby •Ity review board, which is answer able to the President. He wants Congress to set up a review boart' which would be an Independent government .agency. * Malone says that under the President's . board, department heads "could and did ignore the board's findings at will. It's doubtful Congress will do anything about Malore's idea.'(An official of the President's board says there is not a . single case where a department head has kept an employe found disloyal bj the President's review board.) • McCarthy lias particularly bang ed away at the state Departmen in charging that there are Com muntsts or their sympathizers stil in the government. The Senate foreign relations com mittee has appointed a subcommtt tee to look Into what he has to sa. Its investigation started yesterday. Phonograph 'School' Sounds Warning Note for Husbands State.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, h visited the Dell and Shawnc Schools. He was accompanied b By Arthur Ertson WASHINGTON, .\farcll 9. Wj— The men of tills country, many of whom already harrassed and henpecked by theEr wives, now face a new and terrible marital threat. Soon we may not be able even to sleep in peace. This horrendous fact came out eslerday at a sleep-learning dem- nstration. You've probably heard about Icep-IcarnIng by now. Some psych- Hgisls think you can learn while our asleep. With a slny speaker n your pillow. Hie phonograph or ape recording mnchlne can grind lit lessons while you're snoozing. It works, too, the experts say. We'll get around to the sleep- earnlng demonstration in a mom- nt, after a word with Richard C. Darnell, who sells tape recorder hlch he hopes people will buy ) use In. their night homework. "It's amazing what you can do ith suggestions to a sleeping per- on," Darnell told reporters. Hiislmml lilts Salad "A wife was eager to get her iusb;md so he'd eat salads. So very night while he wa.4 asleep. Ije kept telling him how good alads were. "Well, about three weeks later, ler husband said he thought he'll ry a salad. He's been eating them ver since." Now a wife that would do this or a salad obviously will soon mve other pet projects to work on. And what one wife will do, others will do. v The ide'a will become commcrclal- zcd, and wives will be buying phonograph records which will coo t their husbands at night, urging (A) better attendance at bullets and P-TA meetings, <B) a more encrous. attltucic toward washing lislics and <C) more money for the nlssus. The possibilities are terrifying. As for the sleep-learning demonstration, it was held in a front window on busy Connecticut Avenue. The sponsor: Educational Services, which peddles learn-a-for- ign-language phonograph records. Mary Jane Hayes, n nice brunette item who also answers to the name of "Miss Washington," came in, went to the front window and climbed Into bed. Miss Washington a Hit Then while the phonograph muttered a nord arlUitdo!* "rnlster moiislur Jtnd good day bon solr and while,the crowd on the sidewalk wondered what goes here, photographers .took pictures of Miss Washington.' This went on' for 30 minutes. Whereupon the photographers said they had enough pictures, Mi? W; said she - hadn't learned any French, which seemed probably under the conditions, nnd a reporter said: "Frankly, I'd rather spend my nights thinking about Miss Wash- ington than about a French nooun." • Everybody laughed, -except me. Just wasn't In the laughing mood, I guess. I couldn't get my mind off salads. Cancer Campaign To Be Discussed Ben T.
