In Kelson Ben recently •ought to "anticipate" a terrible date. He figures it could ccme some time in 1969. Russia now'(1969) completely dominates all of Europe and' fte Middle East. ' • China has all of Asia, Africa, awakening unprepared, divided, helpless as a flock of ducklings circled by a drooling fox. Moscow has broadcast ail ultimatum: "The United States must enter into immediate negotiations for the subordination. of all defense machinery to the Soviet high command; the civil administration of the U.S. most be turned over to American citizens already entrenched in the various departments of government and already secretly taking orders from the Kremlin, All Americans are to remain quiet and unafraid, for their liberation from capitalistic domination is now near." The broadcast has assured the churches of America that there will be perfect "freedom of re* Bsion, though their programs Will originate with a new group ef leaders, friendly to the new tfBtee." The President has sntnmoned Us Cabinet and general naff to «be White House. All radio and TV stations are alerted to clear 7 p.m. for an address by the President of the United States. "My fellow Americans, tohtght we find ourselves confronted with the gravest crisis in our nation's history. , "You are fully aware of the ultimatum which has come from the leaders of the Soviet Union. They' demand that we submit all'our vital resources to the control of Russia. "This shocking situation comes at a time when we thought an amicable and fair compromise had been reached with the Kremlin; we had been assured by Russia and Red China that their encroachment would cease before reaching our shores. "It is now evident that Russia Intends to dominate'all of the world. Wefaavebuttwocboicesj submit or figftt. .

His words were nc heard outside the studio. Net work broadcast lines already. had been sabotaged. Dr. Bell, who watched the Ret tide sweep across China during a quarter-century as a medical missionary there, has offered this prediction with a heavy heart: , "Unless we repent from our Wicked ways at home and abandon our foolishness in international politics, disaster must follow.

They keep getting pregnant. So naturally I stuck around to ace if the-House Space Comm, ittee had anything to propose. •• This committee had always seemed more concerned with«s than storks. As a matt*? of fact it's been so busy star sizing this year it hasn't tad time for fi number cf pnc sing problems on earth. One of these, committee members heard recently, is what all we don't know about our oceans. So they had called in some experts on oceanography. And I'm afraid the experts confirmed the worst that Remember* had heard. We know, more about the sur-: face of the moon, said R. Gor- .don A. RUey. than we do about the floor 'of the ocean. Riley is professor of oceanography:,, at Yale and my new york Jf. BY MEL HEIMER •jyrjiiw YOBK— I note that {be Japaneee govern* IN meat ia getting a little worried, about the behavior at the passengers on the government- owned railways there and that tta latest dodge la 'having loud speakers announce firmly that the train riders must not take off their pants. K •seems it Is the custom for passengers on long journeys to shuck, their outer clothing, to get comfortable. -Not to mention boozing it irp freely, annoying others with loud; portable radio volume and tossing food y*** papev fatt> the aisles. . All' I can. eay is that X am glad we do not have thi* kind of penon riding on the Hew York City subway system. . . Oh, Wa true that now end then there are . subway vs. email annoyances on our rapid tranait network, S. but they hardly amount to s thing. In the sum: raer time, for instance, you just never **e women aftedding their dresses to buck the neat The 'truth is, they often Jutye no dresses to shed. A halter and short», tans stocking*, tans girdle, tans virtually 4tll the basic sartorial necessities, is the order Of the day. And there' are few more piquant sights than a middle- aged woman, weighing 180 or so, with varicose veins, riding the Lexington avenue express in baiter and short*. • * * * I CAN SAT ALMOST SAFELY that there are no loud radio noises on the New York subways, either. The passengers, in fact, contribute almost no noises of any kind. They can't. The 40-year- eld can go thundering along with such a violent jacket that it is impossible to even shout and make yourself heard. Regular subway riders learn early in their underground life that fliga language Is a must. I dont know whether there ia much violence or mugging' or sex crimes on the Japanese railroads; but there is hardly any to speak cf 'on our subways. Oh, it's true that every now and then you hear ot a secretary being strangled on a lonely BMT platform in Brooklyn and here and there some of the town's amiable ragamuffins may threaten you playfully with, a knife as you wait in PeKalb avenue for a local, but these amount to virtually nothing. There is no such thing as waste paper in the aisles in our subway*, For yean there has been organized 3 corps ot riders who nave devoted themselves to (1) getting their news by reading over your shoulder, or (2) grabbing for your paper the moment you leave it behind you on the seat. My only complaint here is that they are not over-fastidious. I even have experimented with leaving a Philadelphia paper on the seat and that, too, has been siphoned up. K ia quite an experience to watch a Bronx housewife avidly reading about the election of officer* ot the Kiwanls club in .Philadelphia. However, we must not fee provincial. , * • • • WHE DISPATCH FROM TOKYO SAYS that ordinarily the Japanese 'train* are spotless as they begin their rum, and I am glad to report that the subway train* are not placed in any such ridiculous order before they start their ride for life. Obviously, our shrewd transit authorities have figured out that tt is more practical to start a subway tram out in disheveled shape, jbecause it's only going to get that way anyhow, so why blow all Jthat money on cleaning men or women? ! tt is sad, too, to see that In Japan the conductors have no authority, say, to force the customers to put on their pants. Authority, is A COOd thing and the New York subway conductors are vested with iarf* 'pieces of it It Is their right and privilege to knee you -in the *ack if you persist in lagging behind on the platform, and to im— "~a>t whipper-snappers who ask what train to take to I68th they rightfully are entitled to— and do—cay to you "How [I know, Mac?" Aayyray, I have been spending today feeling sorry for a country Mrher* the train passenger* do such dreadful .thing* sz take off their •ants in public, Jt couldn't happen here, where the s-ihway system l»'truhr something to behold. In the words cf the cUti* barker f»e n,,-33it say once seen, never forgotten. Oceanography Committee ofth' National Academy of Sciences He said while ve.,spead bill ions of dollars to try to getinu space, we've doled out a paltrj few millions 'to find out what goes on in the ocean. And he seemed to think we could lose the next war under the water. .'.•"•We have a wonderfulnewwe- apons system, probably the best in the world, in .the Polaris missile submarine," Or. Riley said. "Yet we cannot use our 'submarines, and oursubmarine defenses, efficiently until.we know more about the ocean." And it's not only the Russians we have to worry about, according to Riley. He said we may be bringing on another Ice Age.' This could bury bur northern states under glaciers and snow, right down into Ohio. That's just a theory, be said. But it's causing oceanographers plenty of worry. As I got the message, when we burn coal and oil we throw off carbon dioxide. Which tends to hold heat. It's a fact the earth for years has been getting warmer, he. said, and the arctic ice is beginning to melt. This-means more open water in the arctic which, in turn, means more evaporation. This 'results In more snow. And this starts another piletip of fee, and- eventually another go-round with the glaciers. Seme people think mis process could show some upsetting effects within the next 100 years. Whether man is bringing it on himself or not, by releasing all that carbon dioxide, Riley said, we ought to find out for sure what's going on. That's how he happened to start talking about graduate students, their wives, and their babies. He said there are only about 600 qualified oceanographers in this country, and not near enough.young scientists learning the trade. Bright young men in other scientific pursuits get fellowships and help from the government while they learn, he said,- but "we are poor relations," and about all a graduate student in oceanography can hope for is maybe $1,500 or $2,000 a year. "A couple can live in reasonable comfort if the spouse has a job," he said. "But there is hardly a professor in the country who has not faced the dreary spectacle of a student wi'' a pregnant wife. "What should be a source great happiness if any family is a dreaded occurrence to the life of a graduate student. It generally means dropping out o! school or apoveny-pinchedpr- olonged existence at the graduate level.". Riley said Congress shouldpa- ss a law to give oceanography students special government help, like maybe $4,000 > year. Then they could enjf tush 'babies and this branch o: science could start catching up. Chairman Overton Brooks t> La. said the committee woulc think about This.

(When we know of kings who did do wrong.) ; The idea looks simple: As absolute law maker, the king could hold himself above his own law. He was under no law and'could therefore do oo legal wrong. Anyway, when King George lost the thirteen colonies, the American states took over the doctrine of .Sovereign Immunity: Nobody can sue a government agency without the state's permission, when the agency is doing government work. (Of course if the agency is doing "proprietary functions" like running street cars or making electricity, it may-of tea besuedmuchlikeany other business.) Thus Suppose for lack of due care a private bakery truck should harm your child who had done nothing u bring on the accident. Well then, most likely you could sue thrbakery-in the child's behalf and collect damages. But not with government agencies unless the legislature gives you lawful permission. -, • Thus in the old days, if an army Jeep harmed your child, you could collect only if Congress JPM-. sed a special bill awarding damages. ~ : Recently this doctrine has been attacked} Why shouldn't the government pay like any other organization? , ....... So during the .last war the federal government In response to public opinion passed a "ton liability" law. It gives the people much more power to sue than before- the last war. And the courts much more often than Congress'nov/ set the darn- -• ages in many kinds of cases. In Texas, the Legislature by a proper action • may permit certain general types of suits to be brought against the state, under various conditions and restrictions. Then, if a specific situation arises which is not covered by the general rules, -the legislators are authorized topass a special measure to permit suit to be brought. Therefore, any person seeking to enforce a claim against the State of Texas through the courts must petition the Legislature for the necessary per- nission, unless his claim falls within some general category or type previously recognized by >ur lawmakers. During each session, the Legis- ature passes legislation allowing suits to be br- >ught against the state in a variety of cases. Sometimes, however, suits may be brought against individuals holding office under'the State of Texas and acting as agents of the state, but where the state itself is not the principal party to the suit, without first gaining consent to sue. There are numerous situations in which an individual officer may be sued with regard u the duties and functions of his office, ana ia which the state Jk not tttttOf ot Suppow you da obtain legislative petmlsiioD » sue the ante. What happens then? If suit Is brought against the State of Teaas, and die actidn is successfully prosecuted, you will be awarded a judgment against die state. Then, #4 .back W.tiie Legislature for more*legislation to appropriate the necessary, money with which the state may pay off the judgment. .
