J., the third airplane crash in that city in two months was flmost too much. Three in a row, with death riding them all, was almost more than Elizabeth's people could attribute to mere Coincidence. They were thoroughly frightened and demonstratively angry. They Weren't particularly concerned with the cause of the crashes. They wanted them stopped if it meant closing down Newark purport, on which the three doomed planes were either taking off or landing at the time of the tragic crashes. Roy IF *&u'KG GOIMG CALL CM ^ 'VDUMG LADY MUST SHAVE. ^00 LOOK KY FUZZY. DONT WHO SHAVED 1EAI L£/\RNS HS'IS MAKING PKOGRESS * NOW THE AIRPORT has been closed, feut does that solve the problem? By closing down Newark Airport, said by some authorities to be the best-equipped in the country, i considerably heavier load of traffic is imposed on remaining airports serving commercial planes in the New York area. Elizabeth, itself, certainly is in less danger, but what about the communities surrounding ihe other airports whose already heavily taxed facilties are now even more strained? The tragedy of Elizabeth has application at almost any airport in the country where heavily populated residential areas surround the field. The Port of New York Authority closed Newark Airport following a wave of near-hysteria among the residents of Elizabeth after the last crash. Undoubtedly the Authority had its good reasons for so acting, but other communities faced with the problems arising from a big nearby airfield would do well to think long before acting. The airlines, which are intimately concerned with the tragedies at Elizabeth, are faced with a problem that Would be almost insurmountable if major airports are to be closed down following crashes which could not definitely be attributed to the efficiency of the airport itself. Thomas L. Stokes Badly Needed: Year's Work For Year's Pay WASHINGTON — Congress has been out of school this week out it respect for Abraham Lincoln, or out of respect for Republicans paying respect to that giant figure of the ages who looms so much bigger than anybody around today. Paying respects to Old Abe, so far as Republicans go, means members of Congress scurrying hither and thither to speak at various and sundry Lincoln anniversary celebrations, luncheons, dinners and whatnot. Some of the things being said in his name and some of the poses and attitudes struck by orators would shock our Civil War President. He was an humble man who should be pondered in the heart. the supply bills for running the government for the next fiscal year beginning July 1, for which President Truman recommended 85.4 billion dollars. Congress probably will not vote that much, but almost that much, and that will throw our budget out of balance. off to these affairs in honor of Abe Lincoln and Andy Jackson and Tom Jefferson. Campaigns cost money. , OFTEN A SERIES of air crashes can be traced through a pattern of causation. That is, some one type of plane will develop flaws and by putting together information on those flaws as they occur in several planes, the pattern of cause can be established. And then the situation can be remedied. No such pattern seems to apply to the Elizabeth crashes. In one sense this is unfortunate, for it deprives the residents of the city of assurance they so badly need. It also leaves the airlines and airport authorities no concrete point upon which to base corrective measures, as yet. In the absence of some such reassuring tangible basis for action, a rational and objective approach to the problem is essential, for the peace of mind in citizen^, and for the future air safety. Mental Kindness PSYCHIATRISTS now believe that simple kindness and understanding on the part of others can prevent many of the mental breakdowns which crowd our institutions with patients. Individuals with insecure personalities are able to withstand a certain amount of mental distress, but are often badgered by constantly unsympathetic words or acts of those near to them. Unfortunately their relatives and friends may be unaware of the part they play in bringing about mental breakdown. It is so easy to probe at another's weakness, through desire to remold character, deliberate wish to hurt or irritation at traits we do not like or understand. An unstable individual is seldom improved by repeated criticism. Rather he is likely to crack under the mental strain of constantly warding off blows. When his dangerously disturbed condition becomes noticeable to himself or others, fear of a mental breakdown can help to push him over the edge. Sometimes this fear is fostered by those near him. Victims of mental breakdown resulting from such causes have been known to respond very well to kindness and sympathy. These same qualities may save a mind from breaking. Consideration and understanding of another's thoughts and feelings, and thoughtful explanation of one's own moods of irritation, bring great rewards of mental and emotional happiness. IN ANOTHER few weeks, Congress will mark time again, out of respect for Democrats paying respect to two of their giants, Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson. Their members will be flitting hither and yon to banquet scenes where the atmosphere and the things that are said would ring strange, too, in the sight and sound of these patron saints. They, too, are men who should be pondered in the heart. It would seem that perhaps the best way to observe the anniversaries of these Republican and Democratic champions of the plain people would be for Congress to stay here on the job and get some of the things done that are waiting to be done. It might be pointed out that Congress, now in session for six weeks, has got very little done, as a matter of fact. That is, except for the appropriations committees which are working diligently at the necessarily long and involved process of preparing TO MAKE UP part of that, President Truman suggested more taxes and, if so minded, the House Ways and Means Committee could have been working on that already, with a very obvious task cut out for it, which is to close up existing loopholes by which certain privileged individuals and corporations now escape their just share of the burden. In that way, alone, some five billion dollars could be made up in the deficit which, if Congress appropriates the full 85.4 billions asked by the President, will run to some 14 billions, according to estimates. Nothing has been done about that. Why? You can get a clue by taking a peek at some of the more magnificent repasts laid out for Abe Lincoln and/or Tom Jefferson and Andy Jackson which, as you know, are staged at from $10 to $100 a plate to raise campaign funds for the two major parties. About the resplendent boards, whether Democratic or Republican, you will spot the representatives of various tax-privileged interests who not only are willing and eager to buy a seat so they can hobnob with the politicians who are in a position to protect their interests, but are ready to write much more handsome checks at campaign time. You can understand, then, why members of Congress are rushing YOU CAN understand, too, why Congress doesn't bother too much about such measures as.health legislation, condemned now as "socialized medicine," or Federal aid to education, or decent and adequate housing, or effective controls to keep rents and the cost of living within reason, or even such matters as statehood for Alaska and Hawaii, long deserved, or even democracy and home rule for the American citizens who live in its own capital city. Those are for the common people, of whom Lincoln once said God made so many because he loved them so much, and for whom Tom Jefferson created a political revolution in 1800 to give them a voice in their own government, and' who rallied about Andrew Jackson because he knew the identity of those who would exploit them. We could use such a leader today. YOU WILL HEAR of all these things later, yes, when it is too late. They will all be included in nice resounding phrases in the platforms of both political parties, sonorously read from the convention rostrum, paragraph by paragraph, and published in your newspapers so that you may know how solicitous your political-leaders are for your wel- 'fare—at some future time. Now, of course, could be the time. But Congress dillydallies. Its recurrent spells of inactivity always recall the naive soul who once wrote in a letter to a local newspaper: "We pay them by the year—why don't they work by the year?" (United KM lures Syndicate. Inc.) Peter Edson Price Control Centers On Two Amendments WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Biggest argument over renewal of price control legislation is apt to center around the Capehart and Herlong amendments. President Truman's message to Congress gave them special treatment as "bad legislation." Florida Congressman A. S. Her- iong's amendment guarantees wholesalers and retailers their pre-Korca percentage mark-ups on profits. This tends to pyramid cast and price increases, instead of limiting them to fixed dollars and cents amounts. Indiana Sen. Homer E. Capehart's amendment is the more complicated and controversial of the two. It permits sellers to apply for price increases based on cost increases prior to July 26. 1951. The Office of Price Stabilization was trying to hold prices in line with costs RS of Jan. 26, 1951. The Capehart amendment in effect gave business an additional six months' allowance on cost increases. When Gov. Ellis Arnall of Georgia was being examined by the Senate Banking committee to confirm his appointment as Director of Stabilization, Senator Capehart defended his amendment. He said the whole price control law was good and it had been well administered. amples given the President for his message to Congress, asking for repeal of these amendments. THE HOOSIER Senator said Congress had always been ahead of the President on price controls. He accused the President of having done nothing about controls from September 1950 to January 26, 1951. But since that latter date, prices had advanced only three per cent. Referring to President Truman's half-dozen examples of price increases under the Capehart, amendment, the Senator said the President could have suspended those increases if they were "unreasonable and excessive." Senator Blair Moody of Michigan nailed Senator Capehart on that one. Senator Moody pointed out that under the amendment, the President had no authority to suspend the price increases themselves. All he could do was suspend the claims for unreasonable and excessive increases in costs As a matter of fact, nobody knows what effect the Capehart and Her- loiip amendments have had on prices. OPS is now trying t.o find out. But all it ha.s now is the few ex- UP TO NOW, only 1194 manufacturers have filed papers for Capehart amendment price increases. They cover 4777 items. There are between 400,000 and 500,000 manufacturing firms in the U. S. They may make several million lines of products. It is therefore apparent that less than one-third of 1 per cent of these firms have applied for Capehart amendment increases. Included in these applications arc 160 for machinery price increases, 32 for forest products, 219 for food products, 79 for consumer soft goods such a-s wearing apparel, 788 for consumer durable goods such as household appliances, 467 rubber, chemical and drug products, and 3032 industrial products. The big item in the last category is automobiles. President Truman's message estimated that Capehart and Herlong price increases would cost auto buyers S400 million dollars next year. Irreplaceable Losses History From The Times Files IN THE RECENT floods in California it was feared that a £tradivariu.s violin had beer, swept away by the waters. A pathetic footnote to the story was a statement that the instrument wa.s insured for it.s monetary value. The amount involved was high, but of what use would it be to collect insurance on a Stradivarius? The instrument, made by the hands of the Italian craftsman Antonio Stradivarius more than two centuries ago, could not be replaced. No one has ever been able to match the violins of Stradivari. The loss of a Stradivarius would make music-lovers sigh, but it would be symbolic of the many irreplaceable losses of such disasters as floods. When uncontrolled waters sweep over homes and fields, factories and shops, they carry away or destroy countless tangible and intangible things for which there will never be substitutes. There are things, held dear by each of us, which can only be saved, never replaced. TEN YEARS AGO February 15. 1942 Dr. Allen H. 1'afoc resigns as physician of Canada's Dionne quintuplets, because "my position has been made impossible as the children are not allowed to speak English." Eligible voters requested to rsf- istcr at City Hall for municipal primary election. Cumberland to observe National Brotherhood Week with three programs. Penn Avenue tops La Salic. 36 to 32 in overtime basketball came. THIRTY YEARS AGO February 15. 1972 Local Shriners go into rehearsal for the production of "Jollities of 1922". Eicht thousand voters register in the six city wards. Six inches of snow block state highways leadine from city.

Haeerstown capita! reported searching for a likely r.rw hotel venture here. THIS FIGURE is largely a guess that auto prices will be increased by 5 per cent. But nobody knows, because not all the auto companies have as yet had their increases approved. Also, their price increases have not yet been reflected at retail, OPS has turned down a number of applications for Capehart and Herlong price increases because they were submitted with incomplete cost accounting data. Still other applications have been cut back from s.iy ft or 10 to 5 per cent incrca.sc.s. One reason there haven't been more applications for price increases under these amendments is that so many firms do not have accurate cost accounting: systems. Also, OPS forms 100 and 105 on which such applications must be made are long and complicated. In questioning Governor Arnall. Sen. J. Allen Frear of Delaware asked him. "Will you write regulations that we laymen can understand?" Governor Arnall replied that he cou'.rin't guarantee it. but that, he Looking Sideways ACROSS THE years, when I didn't have much else to think about, I used to wonder about two young girls who -were parts of my early newspaper work. One of them I knew and the other I never met but felt that I knew. What used to puzzle me was what life had done for them and what they could do with life. I knew that each would have to pay a large tab for a romance she didn't order. I also knew that mankind had not yet become kind enough to make it easy for either girl. It won't matter much to one of them any more. She was Charlotte Mills and she died a few days ago in a nursing home in New Jersey. Charlotte was the one I never met. She was 45 years old when she died and for 30 years she had paid the bill for having been born to a choir singer who was murdered for having been indiscreet with a minister. The minister was the Eev. Edward Wheeler Hall and Charlotte's mother was Mrs. Eleanor Mills, and together in a violent double killing they made up the bizarre and never solved Hajl- Mills murder case. * Charlotte did, companies would be a sight better off and have no personnel problems. Toward the end, before illness came to her. illness almost surely caused by her tragic life, she had a quiet job in a quiet bank and the people there were a cut above the rest of humanity. They liked her, she did her job and her unfortunate background was not at issue. The sad part of it is that a job' in which she was happy, at last, had to be given up by her because of illness. CHARLOTTE was 15 years old •when the murders were committed. When the story died out, months and years later, Charlotte would have been better off dead, too. Her young life was blasted by the sordid publicity and for years she found it hard to keep a job. Neighbors hissed like a cave of snakes. Employers, happy to have her on the payroll, became unhappy when some kind soul thought it his or her duty to identify the accomplished, hard working young woman. More than one business man had the task of calling Charlotte in and firing her for' the dreadful fact of her being Eleanor Mills' hounded daughter. Why it was deadful, I never really understood. Why they had to fire her, I never understood, either. What did Charlotte Mills ever do but try to earn her own living and •work hard at doing so, putting out her best and most loyal efforts to the firm that' hired her? I! most people in offices worked the way THE OTHER girl . is about 31 years old now. Her mother was a murderess. Her mother was a restless and unhappy suburban housewife who fell in love in a speakeasy. This sudden flaming of romance carried her and her pathetic little paramour into the electric chair at Sing Sing. Maybe enough time has passed and people won't readily identify the mother. On the short end of the possibility that this girl has made a good, happy life for herself there would be no excusable reason to identify anyone concerned. The child was six years old when her mother committed murder. The victim was the child's father. I remember her even now, 25 years later, a grave-faced, earnest little girl with a sweet, haunting smile that came and went afc odd moments. They did a cruel thing to her during the trial of her mother and the lover. Maybe, legally, it was important. They put tills six-year-old child on the stand .and had her. testily. The judge, as I remember, was considerate and seemed a little appalled at parading this girl in front of a hundred or so reporters. The girl suffered a brief next-day flurry on Page One and then went Into the custody of her aging grandmother. I don't know how long.^the grandmother lived after that, 4 or how long her loving care was available to the child. But now I have only one child of tragedy to think about. I'd like to know where she is today. (McNaugbt Syndicate. Inc.) Marquis Childs Hear Washington Calling SPRINGFIELD, 111. — Governor Adlai Stevenson has a fellow feeling for that man who built the better mousetrap and found the world beating a path to his door. It is flattering to discover that you are the object of a pilgrimmage, with reporters, writers, and politicians coming from all over to discover what manner of person it is who suddenly has been thrust up on the Presidential horizon. >. But it can be embarrassing, too, creating new problems where there were already plenty. Swept in as Governor four years ago with a majority of more than 570,000, Stevenson took over from a Republican regime that had callously and crudely played the game of spoils and favoritism. Despite all sorts of obstacles, ho has put through a whole series of reforms. They add up to such an impressive total that even staunch Republican papers in Illinois have paid tribute to this Democrat in the State House. leaders of both parties to meet with him to discuss ways of destroying hoodlum political power in the Windy City. From the beginning of his administration Stevenson has stood out against the efforts of the Democratic machine in Chicago to move into the State government. On the whole, he has been successful, even winning the admiration of the machine boys for his steadfastness. NOW, HOWEVER, with public morals almost everywhere at a low ebb. troubles arc arising to plague hi.s own administration. One is the sale of horse meat passed off as high-priced beef in restaurants and stores. Another is the forgery of state cigarette stamps. Governor Stevenson has acted quickly and forcefully to root out the wrongdoers, even in the case of the cigarette fraud, going perhaps beyond the bounds of his authority to catch the crooks. In the horse-meat scandal Stevenson quickly fired his chief meat inspector, who admitted taking bribes from the racketeers, and nine others. Nevertheless, the scandals are being charged up against him, particularly since the national spotlight has focusscd on the Governor as a Democratic Presidential nominee in the..event that President Truman docs not seek re-election. No man can be wholly immune from the flattery of that kind of attention. But it is far from being an unmixed blessing. THIS HAS been a continuing battle and one of his toughest. Mayor Martin Kcnnelly, a Democrat and a respectable businessman, has been singularly inert as the syndicate has expanded its power both in business and in politics. People in Chicago point out openly this hotel or that factory which has been taken over either outright or for purposes of tribute. With a fine bipartisanism the syndicate has moved into both Democratic and Republican wards. It is against this background that Stevenson's record looks so good. He has tried as hard as any single individual could to modernize the administrative machinery and eliminate the graft. And he has brought many admirable citizens, both Republicans and Democrats, into state jobs to help in the cleanup. The fact that he has only partly succeeded is a comment on the desperate nature of the times rather than on the slight, sometimes har- assed-lookiiig, figure who occupies the Governor's chair. He has made such an exceptional effort that almost-everyone concedes that he can be re-elected as Governor in November. It is really not at all surprising, therefore, that Governor Stevenson should at this point be discovered as a Presidential possibility. (United Feature Syndicate, Inf..) Barbs A lot of stag conventions are held just so the date for the next convention can be set. AS STEVENSON has discovered, to achieve even the minimum decency in government is overwhelmingly difficult. And that is particularly true in a state such as Illinois where the ancient animosity between city and farm has made efficiency and reform in state government all but impossible. It, to a curious irony that Chicago, where daily diatribes are delivered against the Administration in Washington for corruption and immorality, is itself perhaps the most corrupt and crime-ridden community in the country. Last week a Republican politician, Charles Gross, acting committeeman of the 31st Ward on the West Side, was cut down by seven shot- Eun blasts as he was walking to his home. The reason apparently was hip challenge to mob elements that have taken political control in an increasing number of wards. This ha.s touched off a spasm of civic indignation in Chicago. Stcv- rn.'-on has called upon the political would undertake to ta.lk the language of the man in the street. Senator Moody made an admonition on that, too. "Put in some periods once in a while," he advised the new price boss. These two warnings also put the fin=er on the fundamental weaknesses of the Capehart and Herlong amendments. From the practical .•=?ar;dpoint of trying to administer them, they are almost unworkable lc.Bi.-iatiori. The most successful people keep their mind on their work — others their work on their mind.

Hal Boyle AP Reporter's Notebook TAMPA, Fla-—The American Air Force is training "four-headed monsters" at its MacDill Field base here. That is its term for crewmen of the new 600-mile-an-hour B-47 jet bomber. They ars the elite airmen of the present day. A conventional B-29 bomber has a crew of eleven. The big new Jets are.slightly larger than a B-29, have only three crew members. Each of them is a four-way specialist, able to act as pilot, bombardier, radar operator or navigator. In the entire country there are fewer than 100 of these men. It is the job of bluff. 46-year-old Col. Mike McCoy to train more. A veteran of 16,000 hours in the air himself, ha was the first officer in his 306th bombardment wing to be checked out in a B-47. a plane ha calls "the new star of the air show." The jet bombers—they fly at 40.000 feet, cost $3,500,000 each, and are designed to replace the lumbering B-29 of second world war fame—are coming slowly off the assembly lines. But it. is easier tc build them than to train the men to fly them. "It takes about 24 months to turn out a combat ready crew," said McCoy, THE STUDENTS in his pilot school here aren't exactly schoolboys each must have at least 2,000 hours in the air to qualify as a candidate. Most are veteran combat pilots of the last war. "Everybody in the airforce wants to get into the program," said the Colonel. "But we have to be exceptionally careful in picking them, because of the time and money spent in training them. We can't afford any cowards." The fledgling jet bomber pilots are a serious, harding-working lot. None wants to flunk out of this school. They have a gym, steam bath, and massage rooms to keep them in peak physical condition. "The men come down pretty tired after long flights at high altitude," explained Col. McCoy. "Sometimes they have trouble sleeping." The steam baths and massages help them relax and snap back to normal so they can fly again the next day. They have to keep in shape." Typical of the new jet bomber man is Maj. Ted Silva. who soon will complete his training. The Major, who is 32, piloted a B-17 on 58 combat missions in Europe. Asked why he volunteered for the jet bombers, he said: "Because they're new. I suppose the reason anybody goes into the airforce is because he likes to do new things." I WSNT OUT with Ted on the field to watch a few lajidings. The bombers are desperately precious today because there are so few, and they are handled as if they were big delicatft glass eggs. One after another they Skimmed down as gracefully as gulls, for all their bulk. Soon after they touched ground, a tail chute shot out, opened and slowed them to a halt. "The chutes save wear and tear on th« brakes and tires," Ted explained. "Without them they might burn out a set of tires in a single landing. The pilot has to put that chute in place himself before each takeoff. If it doesn't work, he's to blame." None of these highly skilled jet pioneers who have survived one war knows what the future holds. But they are aware that even now the B-47 would be mighty useful in Korea, where the slower B-29s no longer can make daylight missions in the face of enemy jet fighter strength. The men in training here naturally don't talk about future assignments. But as Col. McCoy says: "We will be the first combat-ready outfit." Under peaceful Florida skies America's deadly new jet bomber is learning to do its Job. f Associated Press) George Dixon Washington Scene WASHINGTON—For the sake of the American people, I hope that Ex-Gov. Ellis G. Arnall of Georgia, the new price stabilizer, has inora confidence in hi.s immediate superior than have some of my ..newspaper colleagues. My colleagues state unequivocally, that Arnall's bass, Economic Stabilizer Roger Lowell Putnam, Is a barefaced prevaricator who looks them straight in the kisser and tells a whopper. Moreover, my colleagues assert that Economic Stabilizer Putnam must be hardened at bearing false witness because he tells this whopper even though he knows the reporters know he is fibbing. This is the deplorable talc of duplicity: The ladies and gentlemen of the press who cover such matters had been informed that several notables were being considered for the post of price stabilizer to succeed Mike DiSallc. They had been told that, although the fornifll nomination would come from President Truman, the actual selection would be made by Putnam, whose economic stabilization agency exercises jurisdiction over the Office of Price Stabilization. FINALLY WORD camp down that Putnam was to have lunch at the Army-Navy Town Club that noon and that whoever was his luncheon guest would be the new price director. The reporters hied themselves to the club and, with their own eyes, saw Putnam lunching with Ex-Gov. Arnall. The latter is familinr to them by sight because he has spent a lot of time in Washington since the Talmadgcs beat him out of the Georgia governorship in 1947. Nevertheless. Putnam who used t.o be mayor of Springfield. Mass., denied flatly that his luncheon companion was Arnall. Everybody learns something every day. says a writ.gr.
