Truman has blundered by letting his present state of mind rule his tongue. By blurting to friends that he doesn't wish to run in 1948, or words to the same effect, he has planted doubt that will further weaken his leadership, and won't easily be erased, regardless of Democratic Chairman Robert kannegan's denial, and regardless of what Truman's eventual decision may b«" NEW YORK STOCKS By Tile Associated Press Am Airlines 10 78V.

Sl-^-VP)— Wheat 178%-84%. 3 whfte »O wt. % vw Leaves From a 'Correspondent's Life Notebook By TOM LAMBERT (For Hal Boyle) TOKVO, Feb. 21—(/P)—The Japanese are the most carefree jtiy-walk- ers ever. They shunt to the other side of the street, at will—to pass the time of day, discuss affairs up at the diet, argue the latest government edict or just to bewail the price of rice. II an American is the least bit relaxed these- days while driving through Tokyo he is likely to pick up anywhere from one to ten cf them on his jeep bumper. Of course' left-hand traffic might have something to do with it. After years of right side driving, even the most steel-nerved has a tendency to become a twisting, neck-stretching neurotic when moved to the other side of the street. Apparently desirous of getting someplace via the shortest route, a Japanese just puts his head down and steps unconcernedly into the street. Driving warily on the left side, this correspondent suddenly was confronted by a Japanese carrying on his right shoulder a huge box which obscured his view. The Japanese spun around twice briskly, then continued across the street with the box still on his right shoulder. Traffic laws means nothing to Nipponese bicycle riders, pullers of rickshas, cart haulers and oxen drivers. It is not uncommon, when driving in the city's outskirts, to have a plodding pair of oxen emerge into your path. Japanese sars an4 trucks give less trouble. Most Americans probably •consider the jeep a small contraption and so it is. But wait until you see some of these Japanese cars, so small they barely can be seen by the driver of a truck having a high mounted car. Oiie of these Mickey Mouse affairs drove past radio Tokyo the other day. The chauffer was sitting stiffly in the driver's seat, with a passenger in the rear seat from which he could have touched the windshield without full extending an arm. The chauffer headed directly Tor a jay-walking mother, with baby. The mother lurched into a shuffling gallop on her wooden cleated shoes and made the curb in-time. Jay-walking is an art in Japan. -«»Skidding was a factor in three per cent of the 4,800,000 traffic accidents in 1944. You ought to Be in Brownsville. The men haven't shaved there for weeks, -and won't until after March 3. The result is rather awesome. You might oven say awful. A beard does something to a man. Any way, "the reason is Charro days that four-day fun festival described in more :letail here recentlj'. A beard is part of the Charro costume a man without a beard is both] scorned and fined. i The chamber of commerce is trying to get Welch Richardson to let them publicize his particular beard, taut so far he's balked. It. seems Welch was in California. He grew a beard out there, and it was a sandy, manless sort of beard. His Texas beard is dark brown, almost black. He doesn't know v:hy it changed, but the chamber of commerce is full of ideas. ' While men rvre taking a holiday from razors, the women are working harder than ever. They're making costumes. It's a job. but costumes Jiice made will last for years. Some cost several thousand dollars 'and this is no typographical error!) Already Brownsville has the S. RO. sign out. and offi3ials are definitely worried about how they'll house the crowd. Every hotel in Brownsville and nearby cities am' booked to capacity. Tourist camps are reserved. An abandoned fort and air ba,se have been obtained to handle part of the surplus, but they, too, are crowded now. Hotels in Matamoros, Mexico, arc filling. Floats are being made, window displays are noaring completion, street 'Qeiorations will be up soon. Entertainment features are booked.
