It must produce — in extremely difficult times. If it does not, its prospects for 1956 may sag bndly. That hard necessity is not made easier by the outlook of a Sbrioua rift between Eisenhower and the most powerful Republican in Congi'ess. Perhaps Taft's second thoughts on this matter will be calmer, and will show greater recognition of the critical tasks which confront his, party on the threshold of renewed 'power. '' ' . Beasts of Burden Taft Must See Critical Need For GOP to Prove Itself Now In naming his .cabinet, General Eisenhower seems to have tried rnainly to , .organize a "team reflecting many seg- ' merits of our national life and capable" of affording the country efficient, high- minded public service. A convincing case cannot be. made out that he has deliberately favored one section over 'another, one Republican Party wing over another, or ont clement of society over another. These considerations appear to have had little place in his decisions. His choices have won him a great ' deal of praise. Apparently many peopltf appreciate his somewhat unconventional approach to the task. Yet, inevitably, • there has been criticism as well. Some Democrats, and even some Republicans, L'omplnin there are too many businessmen in the lineup. ""Reyiublicnns feel politicians have been slighted. The. opposition suggests tht business viewpoint is overweighted. This complaint hardly will'hold water as applied to the secretaries of .Commerce and the Treasury, since the Democratic incumbents are also bxisinessniL-n ' and the jobs would seem to call for men versed in that field. The current defense boss, Secretary I-ovett, is a Republican and a Wall Slrett lawyer. Admittedly, his successor v Charles E. Wilson of General Motors, has headed a great corporation. But Ika chose him with particular care, wanting a man qualified by experience lo oversee the economical management of the armed services' vast procurement operations. Even the new Secretary 'of State, John Foster Dulles, has been assailed as a "corporation lawyer." It is hard to ste what this has to do with the case. He was chosen for his knowledge and training in foreign affairs, not on account of his attitude toward the Tafl- Hartley law. From the Republican side, the sharp \ outcry of Senator Taft ngainst the choice of Martin Durkin to be Secretary of Labor rises above tlife mumbling about favoritism for the cast, for the "Dewey wing," for businessmen over politicians. This response was at once nnder- standable and puzzling. Understandable, because to Taft, wedded to GOP rtgularily, iv would indeed seem "incredible" to pick a card- carrying /Truman - Stevenson Democrat for any high post. On top of this, Pm-. kin favored Taft-Hartley repeal and Ike named him without consulting Taft, a * Tale of Wonders The new l/ife magazine series called "The World We Live In," telling in word and dramatic color paintings the story of the birth, the life and probable death of the Earth, of its oceans, land masses and living creatures, is a highly commendable presentation. There is tingling excitement in this talc of wonders, known or conjectured. It is a story for people of all ages who may be puzzled, about the physical world around tliem. It is proof that nature's realm and the universe beyond are not dull topics — the (Dullness ia only in the minds of some who try and fail to tell the story.

They turned the whole thing Into a sort ot a technical debate, with Gray over various sec- Ions of the report. They apparenl- y had seen the report beforehand. Rep. Edith Nourse-Rogers; (R;, lass.), who will be chairman of ic House Veterans. Affairs Com- ilttee, had front-row seat and hnost took over the conference erself. She started by addressing Gray as "General nines," appar- ntly mistaking Gray for the man who had been boss ot the VA be- ore (he war. The high spot of her presence was a long, spirited debate with over just who had ordered he report under discussion In the irst place. There was no decision on that point. Gray again used a unique pubic relations approach to the re- jorters, which bad failed dismally at his first and only other press conference.. When one would .asV lim a particularly pertinent ques- :ion he apparently couldn't -or didn't want to answer, he would wnlk over to the man and pat him patronizingly on the head or shoulder. In his husky voice he would address him as "my boy," "my son." or "young felln." Most of them have been in town a lot longer than he has. He ended by elaborately dodging the question oE whether or not he thought he would hold on to the office under the Eisenhower administration. Inaugural Short Subjects Notes on the coming inauguration: Most of the hotels in Baltimore arc already booked by the overflow crowd. And the Philadelphia hotels have begun to get requests for space. Washington hotels are demanding cash in advance for rooms, too. The inaugural committee has set a goal of $500,000 to be guaranteed .by local businessmen.
