:-^jMSjgIa!.n££.. To ent •ansformed Drop Tall' (fcflltor's Note: This is the first Of t*o stories explaining the "fetnploymcnt bill"—once It was Balled the "fall employment bill" —passed by congress.) * ^ * By .TAMES MARIAW WASHINGTON. Feb. 15 _~-(/I 1 ) Congress hns passed :i bill--no longer called the "full employment bill"—which says the government is responsible for ereatinR "mnxi- nmm" employment. Allho..Ah it. is u very much (onetl- down version of the "lull employment bill" first offered in congress a year ngo, President Truman is expected to sign it into law. It is called now simply the "employment" bill. Even so—despite the evident timidity of congress in committing the government too far—the bill is a landmark in the history of this country, but only to this extent: It commits the government to planning: for jobs for those who need and want them. The bill itself, of course, doesn't, provide any jobs. Nor does it say the government has to provide jobs. Yet that could be done by the government because the language of the bill, which is broad, doesn't say the government can't do it. This is what the bill docs, and how: The President appoints three economists of proven ability. They'll be his economic council. Each of the three receives $15,000 a year. They'll watch the way the country is going, or is apt to go. They'll analyze and interpret economic trends. They'll produce programs to promote "employment, production and purchasing power." They'll turn all this over to the President and help him draw up a report to congress every year. This presidential report goes to a special joint committee of sen- ator)! and representatives. By May 1 of each year, begfftnln'g In 164?, this committee must recommend to both houses what it thinks should be done about the President's proposals for the country's economic^ good. Then it's up to both houses to decide what shall be done. There were many protests when the "full employment bill" reached Capitol Hill a year ago. The senate first passed its own version. Then the house finally passed a weak-sister version. The bills differed. So a joint committee of senators and representatives was appointed l.o go over the two bills, fry to reconcile them, and come up with one bill which both houses could paws. This was done. Now (he bill is waiting for the signature, of the President, or his veto. Texas Today Associated Press Staff Bv JACK RUTLEDGE LOST AND FOUND: Ervin Beckworth of Amarillo, a carpenter, had saved $1,500 which he was going to use to buy a farm. He had the money sewed in the lining of his, coat. Mrs. Beckworth was holding the coat in her lap and accidentally lost it when she got out of their truck. A frantic search was fruitless, and Mr. Beckworth posted n S25 reward, notified police, and resignedly went back to carpentry, his dream of a farm blasted. A month later a cook in an cat- ing house was flashing an uuusual- j ly large amount of money, police I investigated, and recovered $1,484 1 for the Beckworths. The coat had "passed through three hands. First a truck driver had found it and had traded it to a liquor store for a bottle of whiskey. The dealer sold it to the cook. The cook found the money j and was having a bis: time spending it when the police stepped in. The Beckworths are going to buy a farm now. M * v "A *.?

COURT OF HONOR GRAND WORK OF SCOUTING vi Leaves From a Correspondent's Life Notebook By HAL BOYLE BOMBAY, Feb. 15—(/?)—America is the place where people used to ask Santha Rama Ran, "So you're Indian? What reservation are you from?" Once when she wore the traditional Sari robe in an American restaurant, a woman mistook her for a crystal ball artist and said to her: "You can tell me my fortune." This 23-year-old girl has made a good start henelf in telling India's story with a best seller book, "Home in India,'' which told of her conflicts in readjusting herself to her native country .ilfcr ten years in England. t Since returning to India last fall, sne has lived with her parents and police dog. Pasha Kemnl. in a spacious western alyle house in a fashionable quarter of Bombay. Her father, air Senegal Ram Kuu, is a | diplomat in the India civil service. Lary Rama Ran is active in Indian politics and social \veltarc movements. Her name means "spring." Sanlha is a tall, handsome woman with imperious black eyos and n strong will of her own. She wears an Indian Sari ar.d it, does no injustice to her willowy figure. But she likes to enjoy the freedom accorded western women. Although "ihe found American ignorance of India "shocking," she liked the United States immenseley and thinks her own hind has mui-h to learn from it. The youth of India also needs "what yon have in America and no- j where else I have seen—a chance for education for all. a chance to get ahead and get specialized training in any field you want," she said. "But I wouldn't want Indian students who go to America to briny Uii'k the dtutudc of American college students. In America, the students have ibsoltitely no appreciation of their privileged position. They are bored with the very thing- students in other parts of the world are fighting, yes, even dying for." Democratic in outlook, 'Miss Rama is emplematic of the slow breakdown of India's age old rigid caste system and feels she is particularly fortunate to have been educated in two cultures, that of her own country and the western world. "I think I learned in Ameri.a what I need to do out here," she said: "Our job--those of us so lucky to have lived in these two cultures— is to interpret them to one another. If we. can make ourselves—the Indians-real people to the Americans, wi shall have done more than our politicians have been able to dp. I like to ieel it is worth their while to interpret America to India—the veal America." I asked Santha what she thought Bombay needed most and she quit beiny serious and smiled: "A good nightclub."

I remember d«orge ussd to bring me a box of the fiheSt candy he could affoftl and I Would let him kiss me. It wasn't good candy but 1 loved it. Now that we're married, things are; about the same. The candy he brings me these days is a lot better, but on the t»r*cte other hnnd, his kisses aren't quite what they were. Tliis year I sepent my frilliest Valentines to the butcher and creamery man. And the one that went to our landlord, read "If you loved me like I love you, you'd fix the roof and plumbing, too." The dairyman answered, "I love you more than pen can utter—but what the heck, I've got no butter." The butcher however got sentimental, and actually permitted me to buy a beef heart.

From where I sit . 4t Joe Marsh Sam Hackney has a trade mark Before Sam Hackney got suc- . cessful, his Wife used to make his bow ties for him. ^Thcy came out an inch longer than average — and Sam came in for a lot of ribbing. But he only smiled and took it. Of course, Sam doesn't need to economize now; he's one of the best real estate men in the country. But he still wears those long bow ties. Prospective customers may not remember his name or his face, but . the minute they see Sam, they say, "That's the feller!" The bow ties work like a trade mark — something to remember and identify. And Sam has another trade mark, too: the glass of beer he buyf his client after every deal is settled. Sure, it's a friendly gesture... but more than that, it reminds Sam's clients that he's a man of moderation and good taste—dependable and temperate. Sam's no fool J .
