Pfe 4 ALTOONA TRIBUNI Ours To Offer fE'RE not taking best ful chance to strengthen American friendship abroad. There's an American art form called Jazz. Jazz is a difficult to thing to define. So instead of a complicated definition about "extemporaneous improvisation on a stated musical theme with rhythm backing," let's just say what jazz is and what it isn't. It isn't: "Elvis the Pelvis," Sammy Kaye, . Lawrence Welk, the Crew Cuts, Haircuts, Dominoes, Four Aces, Wayne King or Rock and Roll. It is: Count Basie, Bud Powell, Milt Jackson, Zoot Sims, the late Charlie Parker, J. J. Johnson, Kai Winding, Miles Davis and George Wallington, and if you like it two-beat, jazz is Louis Armstrong, Bobbv Hacket and Jack Teagarden, to name a few. Never heard of them? What a pity. In Europe they're almost household names. In 1950 trumpeter Louis Armstrong visited Europe and armed guards had to be called out to protect him in the nine countries he visited. American jazzmen arriving in Sweden are greeted by throngs and press conferences. Stan Kenton, writing of his European tour in Downbeat magazine, said: "A man- came up to us in Germany and was very much carried away by the concert. He said, 'Jazz is not only music but also a way of life, and what we want to know more about,.' "Then there were the kids who couldn't speak English. They'd grab me by the arm. . .Tears came into their eyes and all they could say was 'Stan!' " Band Leader Lionel Hampton reports European response to jazz this way: "People would say to us, jazz is the only true art form America can present to the world. We gave the symphonies and classics to music, but jazz is for you to give." Jazz is America's best-loved missionary of good will. It's influence has spread throughout the world. For instance a group called the Australian Jazz Quartet is touring America right now. The brilliant German jazz pianist Miss Jutta Hipp is exciting audiences in New York. There is the Jazz Club of Milan. England's Ted Heath has one of the best jazz bands anywhere. There are excellent jazz groups in Japan, Belgium, Austria, almost everywhere. And wherever jazz is played, it's performers look to America for guidance. All of the trends and new styles develop here. Yet only recently has the United States government given official approval to jazz. The State Department helped to send the Dizzy Gillespie band to Europe to make friends for America. Marshall W. Stearns, who accompanied the band and wrote of the totir in the Saturday Review, said: "They (audiences) definitely associated jazz with the cheerful, informal, and generous side of American life and they were bowled over by its spontaneity and vitality." 4 He wrote that in Belgrade and Zagreb fans were so devoted to jazz that they knew the birthplace, age and recordings of every member of the band. The Gillespie band landed in Athens only a few days before the United States Information Sen-ice office was stoned by mobs of Cypriot sympathizers. "The success of the concert," Mr. Stearns wrote, "was unbelievable." The Greek students danced in the aisles with the local gendarmes who were there to preserve order. They drowned out the large and powerful band, playing fortissimo, with a solid wall of applause. After the concert they carried Gillespie home on their shoulders. Traffic was stalled for a half hour." The president of the Frankfurt, Germany, Jazz club summed up the music this way for Mr. Stearns: "A jam session is a miniature democracy. Every instrument is on its own and equal. The binding element is toleration and consideration for the other players." That's pretty much what America means. D. M. D.

Delegation May Avoid Civil Rights Rebellion By MASON DEXISOV HARRISBURG It ii not viewed as likely that the Pennsylvania delegation to the Democratic National .Convention next week in Chicago will become involved should a floor fight develop on the explosive question of North-South civil " rights. The controversy that has raged throughout southern states on ,the subject has not plagued Pennsylvania and even at this stage is viewed ' a s somewhat of a remote thorn insofar as the Keystone Stat.e blocs are con cerned. In the past Pennsylvania has maintained a middle-course stand, leaning more in the direction of equal rights regardless of race, creed or color. In fact in recent years inclusion of an FEPC ptenk in platforms of both Republicans and Democrats has been standard procedure. During the past 1955-56 session of the Legislature FEPC, with the spearheading of administration Democrats and the support of Republican lawmakers, went on the statute books in Pennsylvania for the first time. The important point is that civil rights has never been the explosive question in Pennsylvania as it has developed in southern states and within some northern states. Insofar as the upcoming convention Is concerned it should be noted that Adlai Stevenson, the candidate generally backed by the 74-vote Pennsylvania delegation, has consistently advocated a moderate approach to the question of ending segregation in schools. Under such circumstances and in view of an already established middle-of-the-road' stand it is not viewed as likely that the Pennsylvania delegate bloc will tangle in any floor fight Sational Whirligig Ike's Cabinet Members All Against Dumping Nixon By RAT TUCKER WASHINGTON The members of the Eisenhower Cabinet have now lined up definitely and unanimously against Harold E. Stassen's effort to "dump" Richard M. Nixon as the 1956 Vice Presidential candidate. Although they have not spoken out publicly for obvious reasons, with the, exception of Commerce Secretary Sinclair. Weeks, who declared for Nixon publicly, President Eisenhower is aware of their attitude. In fact, the only cabineteer not striving quietly on Nixon's behalf is Labor Secretary James P. Mitchell, and that is only because he has too many other pressing problems on his hands. He is deliberately keeping away from political controversies. LMPRESSIVE GRASP OF PROBLEMS Nixon's strength within this formidable group is the result of Ike's own doing. He has insisted that the vice president attend meetings of the cabinet and of an even more important body, the National Security council. Such men as Dulles, Humphrey and Wilson have been -impressed by the Californians grasp of domestic and foreign problems. In fact, after Nixon reported to the council on his around - the - world trip some weeks ago, they arose and applauded him a most unusual performance. HELPED BY VP Nixon has won their support for another extremely practical, parliamentary reason. He has valuable close contacts and background understanding of Capitol Hill psychology, resulting from his service in both chambers. Time and again, when legislation desired by Dulles, Humphrey or Wilson got into a legislative jam, the vice president has worked out acceptable compromises through his influence in senate and house. A new man in his place, Ike's closest advisers believe, would not be so successful' on these extremely important missions. , NIXON'S ACTIVE PART IN MAJOR DECISIONS Nixon's displacement, according to these insiders, would mean a sharp break in continuity within the administration on many basic problems. Unlike Truman, who was neglected completely by FDR for more than a year preceding the latter's death, and who entered the White House" as a virtual apprentice, Nixon has had an ativ part in major discussions and decisions. With the world in greater turmoil than at any time since the Korean crisis because of the , Suez Canal controversy, Ike's official family worry over the effect of welcoming another apprentice in their midst, assuming that the GOP wins in November. REALISTIC ANGLE Two other members Postmaster General Arthur E. Summerfield and Interior Secretary Fred Seaton view the Nixon-Stassen dispute from the cold, realistic on the subject should it develop next week. Actually, according to advices to this column, Pennsylvania Democratic leaders in behind the scenes maneuverings at the convention are planning to use this moderation approach advocated by the former Illinois governor in an effort to swing support from other states behind Mr. Stevenson. It is the fairly firm conviction of the state's delegation leaders that this approach will be one of the deciding factors in the possible successful selection of Mr, Stevenson as the Democratic presidential candidate the belief persisting that a candidate taking a strong stand either way stands little chance of winning the convention nod, or for that matter victory in November against Mr. Eisenhower. Worth underscoring is the fact that Pennsylvaniaan James A. Finnegan, originally named Secretary of the Commonwealth by Governor Leader, has been serving as the Stevenson campaign manager. The word on strategy and developments on the national level have been piped in consistently , and accurately by the venerable Mr. Finnegan whose advice and counsel next week the Pennsylvania delegation is expected to follow closely. The only point bothering Pennsylvania delegation leaders is the fact that some of the delegates are known to favor the candidacy of New York Governor Averell Harriman over that of Adlai Stevenson. With the ever-present threat that Harriman forces may take the issue to the floor next week in opposition to the middle-of-the-road course advocated by Stevenson followers, the question of what the Harriman minority within the Pennsylvania bloc would do remains an enigma. On the whole however delegation leaders expect no trouble from within the Pennsylvania bloc on the explosive subject which many feel might well split the convention wide open. standpoint of organization poli-tcians. Summerfleld formerly served at Republican national chairman, Seaton it a canny midwest politico. They know and fear that sidetracking Nixon at this late date would disrupt and demoralize every local, county and state organization. A Stassen success, in their opinion, would place a premium on division and rebellion within the ranks, and penalize the kind of party and personal loyalty Nixon has exhibited. Finally, they warn of the disastrous effect on morale among Republicans in the two congressional sessions of the next four years, again assuming a Republican triumph next November. With 180 house members and a majority of senate Republicans favoring Nixon, they, sea no chance of enacting an administration program of liberalizing the GOP as the basis for victory in 1956 and in the years thereafter. (Released by McClure Newspaper Syndicate) MUDDY WATER DES MOINES CP) Des Moines waterworks officials say they prefer to draw muddy water, rather than clear water, from the Raccoon River, source of the Des Moines city water supply. The reason: Sunlight penetrates clear water and enhances the growth of algae, called diatones. These clog the filters and make the processing of water more difficult. Waterworks officials say the clearing and purification of muddy water is comparatively simple.

I often get lost when I start to walk downtown. The houses no longer look familiar to me. "Could this possibly mean that I am losing my mind?" and she toyed with her handkerchief nervously. ESCAPE MECHANISMS Yesterday I mentioned the escape mechanisms by which unhappy people try to flee from a cruel, cold or forbiddding world around them. Alcoholism is one such flight mechanism, as is insanity. But there are lesser stages, as evidenced in the "foster child phantasy" which I outlined yesterday. Gloria is a shy girl who left devoted parents and a pleasant home town social life to venture into the hustle and bustle of a big city university. She soon became homesick and unhappy. She was daily affronted by the aloofness of city people and their preoccupation with their own hectic problems. So Gloria subconsciously decided to dis YOUR BIRTHDAY By STELLA FRIDAY, AUGUST 10 Born today, you are one of those persistent determined individuals who knows what he wants and goes out after it without any hesitation.

Republicans are chuckling privately over the way they have outsmarted the Dems on one of the most dynamite-laden questions inside the government This is the award of a contract for building an expansion to the government's nickel plant at Nicaro, Cuba, and a secret diary showing the manner in which Chairman Len Hall, master mogul of the Republican Party, pulled wires in favor of his pet company. Reason the Republicans are smiling is because they have managed to suppress this diary. Attorney General Brownell has been sitting on it to keep it out of Democratic hands. Even Eisenhower has been brought into the picture and has concurred that the diary must be suppressed. Democratic Congressmen made frantic demands for the diary. But all they got were smooth smiles from Attorney General Brownell. Though House of Representatives Democrats dropped the ball, Senator McClellan's Government Operations committee has now picked it up and may go further. Meanwhile, other copies of the diary exist, and this writer has seen them. The entries show that Chairman Hall demanded that his friends, the Raymond Concrete Pile Company of New York, get the engineering contract for the very important and lucrative construction job in Cuba. They also show that Hall was against the Frederick Snare Corp., because Snare had not contributed sufficiently to the Republican Party. Chairman Hall, when questioned, called this "damned lie." SNARE EXECUTIVE CONTRIBUTES The Snare company had built the first government plant in Cuba, had a base in Cuba, and was considered qualified to build an extension to the old plant. Randall Cremer, executive vice-president of the Snare Company, who kept the diary, went to see Chairman Hall and argued with him about the Republican background of his firm. He also got Harold Talbott, then secretary of the Air Force, to talk to Hall to convince him that the Snare Company was a good Republican firm. Someone in, Republican ranks even checked the donations of the Snare firm and found that two or three of its executives bad contributed Dr. George W. Crank guise this cold, cruel city so it would not appear so unpleasant to her. She is thug an excellent example of a person who develops the phantasy of unreality. DR. FREUD'S VIEW Dr. Sigmund Freud explained a similar type of "painting" when he said that during sleep we often dream of basic unsatisfied hungers. But when the satisfaction of such a primitive desire violates our ethical training, we disguise the ideas and thus "paint" sexual matters in symbols (dagger for male; shoe for female, etc.) Dreams that seem entirely freakish and illogical, then can be analyzed in simple fashion when the analyst understands the sexual nature of these various symbols. ' Well, Gloria is applying that same "dressup" for the cruel city which has robbed her of her home town friends and social acclaim. So she mentally "paints" a more glamorous but strange aspect to the housetops and steeples and vaguely daydreams her way to happiness. She thus indulges, in a fairyland experience and can even imagine herself a princess to be rescued by a Fairy Prince. FACE YOUR PROBLEM In such cases we psychologists tactfully help the patient face the problem and then show her how to rebuild a more adequate type of adjustment to her dilemma. Gloria was thus encouraged to join my "Compliment Club" so she'd forget her homesickness by diligently analyzing her companions for virtues. Then she'd pay them a sincere compliment, and note the results. Meanwhile, I helped get her actively linked up with a Young People's Society of a local church, and even arranged a date for her. Within six weeks, her surroundings had become so jolly and happy that she no longer needed to. disguise them with her phantasy of unreality. But if such early symptoms are not nipped in the bud, you can see how she might have become an eccentric personality to the point where she was adjudged in need of sanitarium treatment. Send for my booklet "How to Prevent Nervous Breakdowns," enclosing a stamped return envelope, plus 20c. It includes such wholesome therapy as this outlined for Gloria.

(Copyright, 1956, by United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) 0thmmSaV Virginia Land Boom By FREDERICK C. OTHMAN McLEAN, Va. Everything the Klondike has, except the gold, we've got in this boom-town surrounding my beaten up acres. The international sleuths are responsible. This is one of those weird situations. Makes old-timers like Hilda and me blink every time we venture out of our own driveway. All over the place power shovels are scooping out new holes in the ground for businesses intending to sell stuff to the oncoming Hawkshavvs. Maybe our land boom (prices per square foot are reaching astronomical heights) would have come anyway, but the big push started when congress finally put up $49,000,000 for a new headquarters of the cen tral intelligence agency in our midst. This will rank second in size only to the Pentagon, tht federal government's biggest office building; it will have space enough for 10,000 workers. Overnight, seemed like, our Uttle crossroads village vvai transformed. The cow pastures became subdivisions. The chain grocery opened a new supermarket, with automatic doors, air-conditioning, and a parking lot for 500 cars. The old grocery building was leased immediately for a furniture store. Two shopping centers have been established. On of these rented all space immediately and is now being doubled in size. The phone company is putting up a large exchange building, colonial in style. Actoss the pike from it is coming a new restaurant. The bank if about to build itself larger, da luxier quarters. A dress shop is coming in and a second, super-sized drugstore. A movie chain is looking over prospective sites and the battle of the filling stations is on. When we moved into our old house with the busted water pump and the weeds out front, the cows lined up at our back fence and there were only two gasolineries in town. Now there are five and a sixth is imminent, while down Old Dominion road a few blocks are two more new ones side by side. Looks like a good setting for a price war. Dick Smith, editor of our weekly Providence Journal, is reflecting gloomily in print that the oil companies are trying to turn our main street into a Gasoline Alley. The water lines are in, but I'm holding out for a while with my well. The sewer pipes are down, too, but the Fairfax county commissioners haven't yet managed to get a disposal plant built. The boon brings new headaches to the commis-. sioners almost daily. They're worrying now about relocating roads and widening them. One of my neighbors calculates that ' a superhighway is about to cut through his front lawn; he's talking about a lawsuit. Later this week a second hardware store will open. The new postoffice, opened only this spring, is about to run out of lock boxes to rent. No more room to install anymore, either. Night and morning we're getting traffic jams at our only traffic light. About the only place that still looks rural is my own establishment, and ' even then you've got to keep your eyes down.

Finally Cremer came in with a sizable $1,500 contribution to the Republican party in 1954. This would appear to be against the law, since no one with a federal contract or who is negotiating for a federal contract can contribute to a political party. It was between May and July, 1954, that Chairman Hall showed his interest in the Frederick' Snare political contributions. The contract was finally awarded in August, 1954. Significant, Cremer's campaign contribution showed up in Republican campaign records lor the 1954 fall campaign. His $1,500 was given to the National Republican Congressional Committee of which Congressman Dick Simpson of Pennsylvania i chairman. Significantly, Dick Simpson accompanied Cremer on one of his visits to Chairman Hall to convince him that the Snare company was a good Republican firm. SIGNIFICANT DIARY ENTRY Here is one important entry in the secret Cremer diary which the Justice department has suppressed and the Democrats are trying to get their hands on. It is dated June 15, 1954, just two months before the big. Cuban contract was let. "Call from Richard Simpson," reads the entry in the Cremer diary. "Unfavorable newi from Hall has the impression some of references we had given had failed to come through: (1) Talbott (secretary of Air Force) who vouched for what we had said about the original award of Nicaro to us, but has since endorsed Raymond (Concrete Pile) and greatly weakened our case; (2) Bernard Shanley (of thf White House staff), who hassimply walked out (3) has received no corroboration from the finance chairmen in New York and New Jersey." The latter referred to the Republican Finance chairmen in New Jersey and New York, who were supposed to verify Cremer's contention that Snare Corporation officials had contributed to the GOP in the past. Cremer pointed out on another occasion that the Snare company had received contracts from the Democrats in the past with no questions asked about political affiliations. "It seems strange that it should be mentioned now with our .own party in control,'' he said.
