On June 2, President Truman pinned » medal on "General. Eisenhower as the general doffed his' uniform to enter tilt political 'list*. No one then imagined what bittfcr antagonists they \vou!d be, com* before 'the election was over. Mr. Truman, stung by steady criticism, lashed out violently. H? drew the campaign down to the lowest level in many years. • " Sine* then, however; the President has regained his sense of responsibility. He is bent on assuring an orderly-transition from his administration to Eisenhower's on Jan. 20. Fortunately for the nation. President-elect Eisenhower is likewise rle- Urmined that no personal rancor shall affect the security and well being of • the American people. He, too, is eager to achieve a smooth transfer of authority, In that spirit, the two men met at th* White House in an historic session. It was historic because in preyiQuli critical periods — most the great depression — there was no such cooper•• »tive attitude. The shift of power from an old to a new aciministratioi) was painful and damaging. The free, world, and the Communist lauds alike should take full note of this event, and the cooperative arrangements that developed out of it. It is an impressive sign of the will of democratic leaders to surmount the cumbttsome handicap* of the democratic process. / Before the two men met, Eisenhow- •'tr had made clear his cooperation could t* only for informational purposes, since legally he has no powtr to act as President until January, U was heartening to see that Mr. Truman accepted those terms. And re-emphasized that he is alont responsible for the conduct of. affairs in this so-called inttrregrAm. We should not assume that, the wish on the part of these two leaders to produce x painless transition will neces- harily be fully realized. You cannot switch from one regime to another af- ttr 3ft years without causing some confusion and anguish and uncertainty. Yet we ought to be thoroughly grateful that both the out-going and incom- . ing American leadership understands so well the importance of reducing to a minimum the strains that go with change.

There art Jesg than « score Y of access roads., It seems almost incredible that IB two days there could have been 60 pasi •etifcer ears involved in a aeriei of accident*. Actually, the surprise ought not to be so great. No road in this world is safe against the human factor. A highway i* only 1 as safe as art the habits of the men who me it. In this instance, dozen* of motorists Wfcre driving in thick fog — and driving too fast for conditions of visibility. You cannot engineer such carelessness out of - a highway. You can only try to educate drivers' to tailor their driving to conditions— and compel them by police sur- eillance until'they are so educated. Views of Others Of Newspaper Interest An Isolated dispute growing out of the presidential election will hold the Interest of the press long after the election and should also be of Interest to readers who value the Integrity and Independence of their hometown newspapers. Judge Baker W»ll of Sequoyah County, Oklahoma, sued The Tulia World which he ha* read ami admired til his lift for »10,000 for fulling to print his, letter to the editor laMng • position nn the campaign oppjMed to the paper's policy. He claimed'he was humiliated by the omi.wlon and lh»l the letter was Mt cnit' through prejudice b*c»u»e of hls.vtewj; 5o far u Is known, this Is the first time that • a newspaper ha« been sued 'for not printing aomelhlng. No one believes that the old but Iriw- clble friend, though a county Judge, will be upheld If his lawsuit ever comes to trial. But his action, opens up llmlile.u possibilities. There l« not an editor in the land whose wast, basket dally does not contain many time* lh» nmnunt ol copy that appears In his paper.

' IN HOLLYWOOD By DOUGLAS l.ARSEX NBA Staff Correspondent (For Pet* Edabn) '-".•'• WASHINGTON — NBA — The ureaucracy which exists In. Washington today Is called » very stale oiir-layer cake. .''-.' i --'~" •' ' When Franklin Roosevelt , :; took over In 1932 he found trial' the best he coi)ld do w'as to put n new layer of his own employes and bureaus over the one left by Herbert Hoover. ......R'hen ' World Var II came along Roosevelt was Otted to. add still another layer or agencies. Then when President Trtiman moved In he found It necessary to add a fourlh laver of peacetime agencies and his em- pjoyes. : • That's what President - elect >wtght Eisenhower Is Inheriting. I makes delivering on'that part )l hix pledge to clean up the 'mess In Washington" which re- ers to bureaucratic Inefficiency extremely difficult, and some say mpossible. According to the old hands around here' who are in the very mglamoroua field of federal administration, President-elect Eisen- lower's failure to do a prompt ob ol bringing some kind of new efficiency to the. federal service will likely sabotage his efforts to deliver o n his other campaign >romises. A new- President or cabinet of- tcer can throw any number of narvelmis new ideas or reforms nto the top of the federal hopper, only to have them ground to an inrecoRniiable mass when they Mnally come out at the bottom for Miblic consumption. That has happened even when. II of the employes along the line have been in favor of the ideas or programs. It can be a horrible sight to behold what comes ; out sometimes . when those who constitute the machinery oi government aren't particularly In favor of what they ar» supposed' to be doing. Three ."Mechanic*" Are Wl7!in£ It Is probably true, as Elsen- hovv^r, himself said during the campaign, that the great bulk o( government employes are conscientious, loyal workers who will do all they can to help the new boss. But unfortunately that Isn't enough. The unpleasant fact Is thai in spite of thousands ol studies Vy all kinds of experts as to what can be done about the situation, the federal government has steadily, become a more inefficient machine. Nobody has come.up with a real solution for greater efficiency. Some say the heart of the problem is the sheer giant size, of government today. Others say it lies in the absence of/the profit motive. It just so happens that there aren't very many experts in this restricted field available to the new President to help him streamline the federal service. His bud- gel man, Joseph M. Dodge, Hi- ready has his hands full with fiscal matters, which Is a big enough headache In itself. Speculation on whai man or men the President-elect will call upon to help him on this . Important matter narrows down to three persons. And it Is said.that one of them h^as a brand nev/ .Idea for putting more efficiency Into government, which Elsenhower is expected to buy. The three are his brother Milton. Arthur S.' Flemnilnff and James K. Pollock. Millon has had long experience In federal service and knows the basic problems. The talk: Is that he will act as his brother's assistant In the White House and handle' all maUcrs of federal personnel and management. . ' This new job would Involve lia- son with the Civil Service Commission and General Services Administration, which now performs the so-called housekeeping functions of the government. - : Exactly what Jobs Pollock or IHemminsr might get are rot specified In the talk. Both rrien are considered extremely able in the field. 'Flemming'' Was , a inember of the civil Servine Commission during the war. And although he was the Republican member, he did most of the work and provided the group'*.'leadership. . : After the war Flemming became president of Ohio Wesleyan University, was mentioned prominently as a possible Republican candidate for governor of Ohio, served as a member ol the Hoover Commission which made on the big reorganization of the government and was appointed top U. S. Imanpower official In the emergency Office of Defense Mobilization. He is now dividing his time between his manpower duties and being president ot Qhlo Wesleyan. Pollock's service, as a special adviser to General Clay in Germany right after the war gives him his inside chance on an' important Job In the new administration. Clay Is very close to El- senhower and has high regard for Pollock's ability. PoilocV also served on Ihe Hoover Commission, concentrating on the personnel studies. He is head of Ihe political science department of the University of Xflchlgan, and when' he served us president of the American Political Science Association recently made several suggestions for reforms in the U.S. government which received wide favorable comment. It is believed that all three men would be willing to serve under the new President. HOLLYWOOD - NCA - Behind the Screen: This may b< Hollywood's biggest year for auper musicals, but Walter Pldgeon, who was a minor Mario Lanza on Broadway and In early Warner songies, won't b« jolng, "Ml, ml. mi, ml." "I haven't Sung > note -la IS years." he shuddered on MO's "Dream Wife" set. "I couldn't slngr a no(e to save my life now. If Hollywood wahls to empty theaters, I'm Just the man to do H." Pldge, as he's known on the Leo the Lion lot, has been at th« studio since 1937 and will be hlttinf the screens soon in "Vlfckie," his eighth co-starring film with Oreer Carson,, "who's the daytime Mrs. Plrigeon. I'm the daytime.Mr. Fagelson. Why, In Europe, a lot ol people think Greer and I are married." Retirement for the handsome star, who's a grandfather arid whose ase Is somewhere near the 60 mark? - ' . . "I'm not ready to retire. Not until they don't, want me. The minute you relax and settle down, you put on fat and develop a waistline. You get soggy." Jack Haley asked songwriter Buddy Bregman for a novelty song lo warble on a Texas night club tour. "I'd like something sort of half-southern and half-Hollywood," said .lack. So Bregmsn sat . down and wrote: "Carry Me Back to My Old Virginia Mayo." ; Friendly (?) ReparUn The film version of George Bernard Shaw's "Androcles and the Lion" reminds me of the: time a new Shaw play was about to open In London and the caustic playwright sent a pair of tickets-to Winston Churchill with a note: "Enclosed are two tickets for the opening of my play. The other lor a friend—if you have one." Churchill replied in a note to Shaw: "Sorry, but I can't make our opening night. My friend and will see the play on the second ight—If It hasn't closed." • "Hollywood's, typed me as an cy blonde nienac«. I'm fed up with It. Thaf'a not me at art."

"I wanted lo see If I could do t stage show," she flashed It. "The results were even better lhan I' expected. I proved 1 could be'horn est and sympathetic. It'a comedv, singing and dancing for me from now on." 'Change Of Pace Ellena Verdiigo's Spanish ancestry won her the role of the .sexy native doll opposite George .Sarv ders In ."Moon and Sixpence" and then typed her in Hollywood M a south-oMhe-border tamale. She dreamed up a Mexican accent for the roles. But now she's nipping out a Brooklyn accent us Millie In the TV version of radio's "Meet Millio" and remarks, "I've never been to Brooklyn bul I've never been to Mexico, either." Ellena's as awed as all'movl« queens who have switched to TV. She told me, "In two weeks I received more Ian mail than 1 got In four years of working- In Hollywood movies."^ the rhetor Says — Written for NF.A Service By KDH'IN P. JORDAN, M. D. The old Idea that a good child could be raised only by frequent spankings and punishment has died a well-deserved death. Personally. I do not agree with those who believe that a child should never be spanked or punished, but, on the other hand, too strict discipline Is more likely to do harm han good. Furtnermore, many children who are behaving? badly really are KUf- ering from some physical disorder or nervous maladjustment for which punishment Is often the worst possible treatment. The fault is often — but not always—with the physical condition or the home or school surroundings •alher than with the willful misbehavior of the youngster. Before labeling a youngster as a behavior-problem case or as Just 'imply "bad," every effort should >e made to find the cause ol the rouble and remove or remedy it. A bad-acting youngster may have a severe anemia leaving him or her with lack of pep and therefore Inability lo take parl in the usual athletic and social activities. A condition called Si, Vllus Dance, or chorea, which is closely related to rheumatic fever, is 'a fairly common cause of nervousness. And there' are other diseases of children which can lead to undesirable behavior for which the underlying cause is poor health. Mentfcl «r »«rvoi« strains Jro» the environment Are a frequent cause of bad behavior. Lack of sympathy and understanding on the part of one or both parents Is common cause. Quarreling between the parents produces a feel- Ing of Insecurity In almost all children and may lead them to behavior In or away from home which they would not otherwise commit. ,; Too much sympathy or "mother- Ing" may cause just as much trouble as neglect and lack of affection. Overindulgence can produce nervousness and maladjustment as readily as can neglect. , Probably attccttnn and Interest on the parl of the parents toward the child is more Important than making mistakes on immediate problems. If o child feels Ihe love and affection at the parents and the desire of the parents to do trie right thing, he will overlook the mistakes the parents make, such as occasional unfairness In crlll- clsm or poor uurterstandlnir of the youngster's problems, The physical and mental causes tor nervousness and maladjustment In children are closely connected. In spile of Intelligent ef forts on Ihe part of the par»nls, not all children will lurn out well. Nevertheless, there are many chil dren who get Into difficulties who would lurn out better If their parents put a iittle more time «nd thought into helping them. , JACOBY ON BRIDGE It's Easy Figuring Thit Common frror US' OSWALD JAOOHT H'rllterv for NKA Servlc* When today's hand w»s played in a. recent rubber bridge game, declarer looked like a bridge ex- perl right up until he played the first card from dummy.

West opened the king of clubs ami declarer made the mistake o --T probably don't have to tell you. You've undoubtedly seen the right May and the wrong play (only two are possible). If you haven't bought about It, give It'a moment or two now before you read on. Declarer made the mistake of Jayinjr durnmy.'s ace of clubs at >hce. He then drew'two rounds of rumps, cashed the ace of diamonds, and finessed the diamonds around to West's queen. West could ;e« only one way to defeat the :ontract, and he tried for It wlth- mt hesitation. He led a low club nstead ot trying to cash his queen. This play is not as difficult as it ooks, inasmuch as East had sig- nalled at the first trick by playing his Jack of clubs. East' was able o win this second round of cluba with the nine, and'his spade re- urn defeated the contract. South should hive-Men. without ny difficulty that the contract de- 'ended on keeping East out of the ead. The correct play was lo let (Vest hold the first trick with his king of clubs. After that, the con- ract cannot be defeated. If West continues with another club, dummy wins, and declarer draws trumps. The diamond finesse Is taken towards West for reasons of safety, and West takes the second defensive trick with the queen of diamonds. , Now, however, he cannot get the eart to his partner, and therefore cannot win two spade tricks. If West leads spades, South must win a Irick with the. king; and If West eads anything but spades, declar- can easily discard j>ne of his oslng spades on dummy's extra diamond^ .
