The Greenlea« case will take its pl.icc in crime . history because of the brutal murder of the boy, » and the speed with which the kidnapers were arrested, tried and executed. AUo. it will he a con; tinuing mystery so long as the large part of thc| ransom money is missing. Stories told by the two St. Louis police officers to a St. Louis >;r.ind jury were the basis for their conviction on perjury charges. One day, the two officers were in trie he.nl- lines. They had arrested the kidnapers while fcd- ?'.' eral, state and other city officers were searching. '". The arrest of the kidnapers was vcnsation.il because of its simplicity—in the oldest polite tradition. A tip, an arrest. That was it. That day tlic two po- ' : lic-c officers were heroes. While a far more celc- :.. brated agency was applying the most modern ,; methods of crime detection, two cops made the '"•'; arrest.

Calhoun, the county of beauty, has set Apri 20 as the start of Apple Blossom Week. Two grc.n ','•' weeks arc marked in the Apple Kingdom—one in the spring when the trees are in bloom, the other ;'.. in the harvest season. Calhoun will be the Mecca of thousands of vis itors, seekers after beauty. And in Calhoun they will find beauty—the kind that only a bountcou nature can provide and that surpascs anything tha can be devised by the hands of man. On Calhoun's hills the trees will be in thei full glory—a delight to the eye. When one view the glories that arc Calhoun's he agrees with tin ' poet who said that a thing of beauty is a jo> forever. The trees dot the hillsides and the valleys, am their blossoms provide the lovely scene for nature' incomparable backdrop. Given a clear day, tlv blossoms are lined in their faultless beauty agains the blue of the sky. As far as the eye can see, thi vista of enchanting beauty spreads. Calhoun's fame has spread far. The quality o the Unknown Quantity In tinman fratnrc There have been many approaches to the problem of combatting the creeping poison of Communism in the United States, but we ran across one argument the other day th.it seems unique. It was printed in a little booklet published by the National Research Btirc.iu, Inc., ,md written by Madelyn Sliep.ird Hyde of the I mmdation for Economic l-'duc.ition, Inc. The author pointed out that perhaps one of he best arguments against attempts to equalize he fruits of human labor under .1 collective society is the infinite variety of human nature. It should be obvious that each person's desires and aspirations defy measurement—in both quality and quantity— by any other person. And since it impossible to equate what cannot be measured, the collcctivist society must fail in this announced objective. It is possible, of course, to divide a pound of steak equally between two persons. That is a task requiring only a pound of steak, a scales anil a knife, and someone to do the dividing. It is also possible to decree that the two individuals shall have a certain number of leisure hours each day. But it is quite another matter to measure the relative value that the two persons will place on the steak and upon leisure, for one is certain to be more fond of steak or leisure than the other. What satisfies the soul of one person may have little or no appeal to another. Certainly not to the .same degree. Our forefathers sought to preserve the freedom of each individual to pursue, to the best of his ability, the satisfaction of his own particular set of desires—known only to himself. They had the wisdom to rcali/e that in designing a society in harmony with this variation in human wants they were working with, rather than against, a principle of nature. i> » » » » One third of all accidents occur in the kitchen, according to statistics.

Pearson'* Mcrry-Co-Round Split Shakedown Honors WASHINGTON—A quick look at the housing scandals under investigation today indicates that part occurred during Democratic administrations and part under the present Republican regime. As far as the big money goes, much more went to the big build- en under the Democrats, though it appears to have been legal. Chiseling under the Republicans was more petty, more widespread and just as mean. Here are the two kinds of graft that the building industry got away with under the two political parties: Democratic craft occurred from 1941 to 19M under section 608 of the housing act. This section provided for government insurance of private construction loans on ' apartment houses for rental. The loans were supposed to be guaranteed by the federal housing administration at the rate of 90 per cent, but what happened was that FHA officials sometimes okayed u markup of the loans to as high as 130 per cent of the building cost. In one case n builder got away with 150 per cent. For instance, a builder would get a $1,000,000 loan on an apartment house that would cost him only $800,000 to build. Then he would pocket the $200,000 as clear profit even before the ground was cleared. Furthermore, lie would report this profit us u capital uains and pay a tax of only Ii5 per cent. FHA now estimates that these profits amounted to about $100,000,000, but Internal Revenue puts them at nearer $500,000.000. Actually the govcrnmiMit hasn't lost any money on these deals, and losses will occur only if the banks making the loans are unable to collect them. Finally, In 1950, Congress stepped in and stopped this juicy but legal means of rolling up profits. It abolished section 008, <;op Republican graft, has taken the form of shakedowns under section 1 of I ho housing act which provides for government insurance on loans for home modernization and repairs. The FHA under Eisenhower Is responsible for this petty chisel- ing'whereby crooked contractors and salesmen overcharged and swindled homeowners. Though the FHA is supposed to check carefully on repair loans guaranteed by the government in order lo protect homeowners, many FHA officials looked in lh r> opposite direction, in one case, for instance, a homeowner was charged $ 1,000 for an asbestos siding and roofing installation, though it cost the dealer only $100 to do the job. The dealer and three of his salesmen split the profit. This modernization racket, lie- came so widespread that organ- l/ed groups of salesmen devoted their whole time to it. They traveled from city to city, persuading unsuspecting people to si^n contracts for the modernization and repair of their homes. Since the government guaranteed the loans, the homeowners thought they had lo take the figuro«,scl hv the salesmen no matter how Shell should have been the first prominent Catholic prelate to stand up and denounce Sen.

For, 15 years ago, Hish- op Shell had also stood tip and denounced Folher Coughlin, who like McCarthy, was splitting tin United Stales on religious lines When Hishop Shell made tin anti-Coughlin speech, he was at lacked just as bitterly in sonic circles as he is today, and it probably lost him the arehbisli- .opric of Chicago.

II is the lack o Ike, Nixon and Dulles Should CompareNotes By .TAMRS MARI.OW WASHINGTON IP— White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty, In an unusual preview, has explained what President Eisenhower will say in a New York speech Thursday night to the American Newspaper Publishers Assn. Hngerty told newsmen: "The President will say that misconceptions of the aims and aspirations of America as well ns those of other free nations, reported und circulated here and abroad, often cause needless misunderstandings and frictions between the governments and the peoples of the free world." . Some recent misunderstandings might have been avoided if members of Eisenhower's official family had (A) compared notes before they talked on the administration's foreign policy and B) talked in language clear enough to be unmistakable. Eisenhower himself, Dulles and Vice President Nixon in the past few months have made statements which caused confusion and required later clarification. Some of e statements even appeared con- atlictory. Nixon, in a nationwide TV and idio broadcast. March 13, talked . the administration's "new look" i meeting Communist aggression broad and said: "We decided we would not fall David Laivrence SoUdAllied Front Ready For Geneva WASHINGTON. April 19. — There is something inspiring about the resoluteness with which President Eisenhower has pro- Haimed anew America's fidelity to the principle of collective security as against the policy of isolated aloofness which prevailed two decades ago. For in this nge of the atomic bomb and the intercontinental bomber the old idea of the two- ocean defense with a strong navy has been superseded by the more realistic .concept that America's first lineflkf defense is in Europe fnr away from our shores. Whnt. the President hns just said in his momentous pronouncement is that the United Slates is committed to the defense of all of Free Europe, including Germany, and that those abroad who have had misgivings about the firmness of our view can dispel them now. The fact that Eisenhower Issued his statement just after the return of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles from conferences with the heads of the British and French governments means that in advance of the Geneva Conference an allied front of unmistakable solidarity is being presented. Dulles by his indefatigable labors and personal persuasiveness has brought to n dramatic climax n policy that didn't start with this trip but with many visits he has made to Europe in the last fifteen months. Nor is the skill of Dulles and his statesmanlike approach to 25 and 50 Years Ago April 19,1929 Members of Retail Merchants Association at their annual dinner were to hear reports of the retailers' organization and expansion of its collection and credit rating bureau.

In the Bishop's inner office you will find a statue of the famed football player Knute Roekne almost alongside that of the Virgin Mary.

On April 1G Nixon spoke to the American Society of Newspaper Editors and in answer to a question said: The United States might have o send troops into Indochina If he French quit fighting the Com- nunisl-led Vietminh there. This seemed to be saying the Jnitecl Slates might get involved n the very kind of little war which might "nibble us to death" against which Nixon cautioned a month Defore. On March 19, six days after Sixon's speech, Dulles was questioned three hours by the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee. Did this "instant" and "massive" retaliation mean atom - bombing China or Russia for a Communist attack anywhere? Not necessarily, Dulles said. He said he wanted to emphasize in his Jan. 12 talk not the word "instantly" so much as the word "capacity" to retaliate instantly. On March 29, in another speech, Dulles called for "united action" against communism in Southeast Asia. Then he dashed off last week to London and Paris to get promises of united action from the French and,British. They promised only to look into it. Meanwhile in March Eisenhower told a news conference this country would not get into a war unless Congress declared it. Dulles, In a news conference and a magazine article, said under some circumstances, such as an attack on American allies in Ku- Eisenhower could order a phrases of the statements themselves. What, is beginning to be realized here Is that the timing of certain statements and the cnreful preparation through discussions with the National Security Council and members of the ForciRn Relations Committees of both parties in Congress is all part of a master plan to prevent a third world war. It tells the potential aggressor explicitly what, to expect if he misconstrues our pacific attitude as weakness. What a different page in history might have been written if those of us who urged American entry into the League of Nations in the 1920's had been able to persuade the Republican administrations of those years to adopt a policy of announcing in advance America's prospective military cooperation with France and Britain. Also what a profound Impression on Hitler might have been made if President Roosevelt's so-called "quarantine speech" in Chicago in the 1930's, which so many of us supported, had been followed by as explicit n projection of American policy as President Eisenhower has just made. Maybe then the Second World War would never have happened. (Copyright, 1854, New York Herald-Tribune, Inc.)

And for more than a decade we have known the names of two men — now walking freely ybout the U.S. — who directed most of the infiltration of our radiation labs and California's scientific circles. These were the men, working under specific orders of the Soviet secret police, who attempted to penetrate not only the activities and experimentation, but the deepest thoughts of Dr. Robert Oppert heimer. So familiar wtfre informed circles, the FBI, the Counter Intelligence Corps and virtually every other security agency with the activities of at: least one of these men, that all persons with whom he even remotely came in contact were shadowed. One of those shadowed, therefore, was Dr. Oppenheimor. What that shadowing proved—if anything—we will know when the Atomic Energy Commission's special panel hands down its decision on the famous scientist. But to me, for the moment, the story is not in Dr. Oppenheimer It is in the two men now living obscurely and freely—even lee luring—in our big cities. One is a Soviet agent and an American Communist Party leader generally known as Steve Nelson, alias Stephen Mesarosh alias Joe Fleischinger, alia: Louis Evans and recognized in Soviet espionage circles unde the code name of "Hugo." The oilier man is Earl Brow der, former head of the Commu nist Party, U.S.A. Evidence of this is in the rec ords of Congress.

At that session in Steve Nelon's house, Nelson informed lubilin that a special courier had rought him specific instructions rom New York, the records how. The directive had moved him (Nelson) into work for the Soviet espionage apparatus, Nel- 5 on told Zubilin.

This was These records also reveal that , tne ccni contro i led bv Steve Ne ,_ Nelson outlined completely for lubilin the "character and personalities of the various individuals engaged in activities for the Communist apparatus on the West Coast." These records do not indicate that Dr. Oppenheimer was in Nelson's ring, nor that Nelson had succeeded in worming his way into Oppenheimer's confidence. Other records state flatly that Nelson failed to get anything from Oppenheimer. But again I.say, the real story in the heart of our defense production network. For example, during 1943, a group of scientists met regular- son and a fancy little dancer who'll make the news soon enough, which the Communists used to penetrate the atomic research circles there. Government records state that this group called itself a section of the Federation of Architects, Engineers, Chemists and Technicians. This was a pro-Communist union led by a friend of Steve Nelson's. The slory. it therefore seems to liesTn the detailed knowledge of me ' is in . lhe searching of the Nelson and Browder—and their current freedom to operate freely and even propagandize as they see fit. At that meeting in Nelson's house, Nelson suggested that the Soviet secret police "choose in each important city or state where espionage activities might be necessary, a trustworthy contact and allow that person to handle direct contact with the Communist members to be given special assignments," government records reveal. It is generally believed that this was done. It is also believed that many of these contacts were in the 10 independent Communist controlled unions now operating heirs of this apparatus. Or do we need wait another decade to prove we're right? We may not have another decade if this crowd's still operating. What do you say, Mr. Browder? (Copyright, 1954. Post Hall Syndicate. Inc.)

CORN: Q. How long has corn existed on earth? Where did the plant originate? 0. R. J. A. The origin ol corn has puzzled scientists for over a century. The oldest and most primitive corn cobs ever found are estimated to date from 3,000 to'3,900 B.C. They were discovered in Bat Cave, N. Mex., and are scarcely larger than a 1-cent piece. Harvard University botanists recently announced that the finding of fos- sili/.ed corn pollen 60,000 years old, beneath Mexico City in 1953, has definitely established that corn originated in the Western Hemisphere.
