— THE BAYTOWN SUN, MONDAY, JANUARY II, 1954 Inside Washington- Withdraws Special to The Ba.vtiwn Sun WASHINGTON — President Eisenhower's decision to withdraw two United States Army divisions from Korea' stirred up virtually no criticism by Washington armchair strategists even thought no assured peace has been reached with the Reds. Two reasons for this appeared to be obvious. First, not many persons are willing to set themselves up as critics of a military move made by a man who formerly was one of this nation's most successful field commanders. . , , Second, the move holds out strong hope that a reduction of forces oversess obviously spells out the possibility of additional cuts in military spend- Even though the man in the street hasn't shown the interest in economy that accompanies other developments in Washington, grass roots observers re- ' SUN SLANTS POLIO OK THE RUN IN 1954 BASIL, O'CONNOR, president of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, issued a statement the other day that gave this country and the world more hope than anything that a notable figure has said, in a long time. He predicted that by mid-1955 there would be enough .proved anti-polio vaccine in this country that every family could be immunized. What a great day that will be, and you can 'bet that O'Connor is most certain— -if not positive— that, this year's experiments will result in the vaccine being perfected. When that day comes, it will be a great one for the world, for it will be a day that . oulyojll , brought about victory for mankind over the crip- "Should you have a problem— Federal in nature— " " Of Army From Korea Arouses Little asm port that the public' is keenly interested In the President's avowed intention of balancing the federal budget and reducing taxes. Moreover, the public trusts the President implicitly on the decisions he makes on reducing military strength in keeping with national security. The battle over a reduction in Air Force funds, which the. President won, has convinced the politicians of this fact. . PAY BOOST PREDICTED — Members of Congress are privately confident they will win a pay boost in the coming year and they are perfectly willing to give the same treatment to federal judges. A national commission recently conducted hearings on the problem and gave numerous indications that the salary hike will be recommended. Congressmen will be mersly required to approve 'the recommendations made by the 18-membcr board. •The most likely'.proposal—arid the ,one urged by most witnesses before the commission—would provide a $10.000 across-the-board pay raise suggested by Sen."Pat McCarren (D-NcvJ. Such an -increase would boost the pay of senators and House .members to $25,000 a year. It would lift the pay level of -judges in district courts to the same, figure,.-provide 527,500 in the circuit courts and 535,000 -for.the 'Supreme Court justices. Chief Justice Earl'Warren would benefit even more. His'salary would.be increased from 525,000 to $40,000, placing him on a financial par with the vice president and the speaker of the House. CHARITY CRACKDOWN — There will be a strong movement underway in the new session of Congress to tighten controls on charity "racketeering" in the wake of disclosures made,by a New York state legislative investigation of abuses. Several House members have announced they will press for action on bills aimed at preventing the American public'from being bilked by unscrupulous operations^ : • . .'••• ; Some of the measures to curb'abuscs would set up federal safeguards on the use of United States inaus as well as the radio/and television industries in promotion schemes. Also under consideration is a proviso requiring sponsoring organizations to list the amounts spent,ond fund drives, amount raised and dispersed as well as their officers,and sponsors. JET TRANSPORTS '— There is growing optimism : among Air Force officials that America's first jot transport plane is on the way.

That- is money from the March of Dimes. "Victory by Vaccine" is the slogan of the current. campaign. The: need for an annual drive in the- future' will depend, in a large measure, to what is accomplished this year. So the national foundation is asking for' a 50 per cent increase -in the national budget, and that means that donors are being asked to up their annual gifts, and new donors are being sought. .-..••• The March "Of Dimes is the lifeblood of the. National Foundation, and the national organization is the answer of a free people to a scourge that has bl'tghted mankind for centuries. The cooperation of so many • people with their dimes and larger donations .have made possible the miraculous recoveries and partial recoveries of persons already afflicted. In addition it has furnished the- money that provided the research that came before the discovery of "victory by vaccine." Baytpwn and every community in the country are expected to do their part.

You can mail it to the March of Dimes in care of the Baytown postmaster. You can give" it to a Baytown mother who will no doubt call .at your home in the annual mothers' march on . polio. Whether you donation is large or small, it is vitally needed 'in this crucial year. We hope you will find it possible to give something. It is one of the best investments you can make.

MISSISSIPPI PHILOSOPHY CLAYTON RAND is a well known writer and speaker from Mississippi,. the home of many orators of the past. He also has a sense of humor in pointing out .that a new flag stop on a Mississippi rail line between- Meridian and Whynot has been officially . named "Adlai Stevenson Station." He says the name is appropriate because in that section of the world the people would vote for the Democratic donkey himself before they would vote for a Republican. '•''.-" Other stops in that section have such high- sounding names as Increase, Enterprise, Zero, Hot Coffee and SoSo. Rand deplores naming shrines and memorials (but not flag stops) after living heroes. He says their memory should not be revered until after we are "sure they are dead, for you never can tell what a man will do until he'« buried."

The^answer'on Point 2 is that we . had 1 an extremely pleasant talk. If. anyone was looking for fireworks I'm-.afraid they'll.- be disappointed. I .went out to Kansas City 'to.'. interview Mr. Truman for a tele- • vision program opening.this week 'in which I wanted to ask him about his record for combating . Communism and the famous remark about "red herrings." Since the interview, most people have seemed, more .-Interested" in the personal side of the visit, doubtless remembering some differences of opinion we once had over Maj. Gen. Harry Vaughan, of whom I was critical and to whom Mr. Truman was loyal. That came up only in a very indirect manner. Mr. Truman has a rather modest office in the. FeoTeral Reserve Bank at which he arrives just as early as.he did at his desk in the White House. Though now 69 years old, he looked in the pink of condition,' younger and more rested than he cfld as President. When I told him so, he replied:."! •feel better than I deserve." Around his office were shelves lined chiefly with history books. "I've always read e. lot of history." he said. "Ana* now I'm. trying to write some myself." • WRITING HISTORY — On his . desk was a huge stack of mail, and when I remarked on It, he said: "I get about 1,000 letters a day anj do my best to get it answered. A lot of' It has to be an- .swered personally. But my job is getting this book written. I try to finish about 10,000 words a ..day,"' ..... . ..,,-•' . "As one -who makes his .living •writing," I observed, "that's quite a chore." "It's only in rough form so far," Mr. Truman explained, "My research staff comes in and 1 1 dictate from memory my recollection of events. Then they check my memory back against dates and the written record. We've already finished about one volume. "Sometimes," mused Mr. Truman. "I wish I hadn't undertaken these doggone memoirs. By the time I finish paying taxes I wont have any profit from them. But I wanted to do this for history. I went through some important and tumultuous years and I think it's my duty to record" them. "This country has given me a lot, and one thing I want to do when I finish these memoirs is to go out and lecture at colleges about the duties and obligations of 'citizenship. I want to talk to the youngsters, not the old"er people, and tell them what a great country this is end the obligation they have to keep it that way." CRITIC OF PRESS—Mr. Truman talked of many things, much of it off the record. "Whenever you wrote anything mean," he said, "Roy Roberts would play it up in the Kansas City Star. Whenever you wrote anything nice about me, he would" omit your column altogether. It gave me and others a. lopsided opinion of what you were writing. "That's the trouble with the newspapers today. They only want to print one side of the story. Roy Roberts blames me for indicting him, but the fact is I didn't know about it until well after'the Just'".'- Department had 1 begun the case." The ex-President made no criticism of President Eisenhower, though he did talk about some of the big problems facing him.

Friends of Spyros Skouras single out alertness as '»ne of bis leading "success secrets" and they like to tell this story: Some years ago, "Skouras was on an inspection tour which took him to a southern city, in which Ivas located a million-dollar theater.

You may remember that I appointed him head of the commission to *tudy Europe's food needs, and later ip. pointed him and Dean Acheaon a* joint heads of a commiMloB to study the reorganization . of the government. They did a. fine job and I was able to get mpit ef their recommendations approved by Congress." I recalled to Mr. Truman that Mr. Hoover had once made an off- the-record speech at the Gridiron Club in high praise of Truman. The other ex-President taM he remembered it and added;- - v "At the Republican convention in 1948, the Republican! asked Hoover to - make the keynote speech and wanted him-to smear me. When he refused, 'they got another apeaker. Mr. Hoover told ma about it himself." REMEMBERS .COLUMN'.-. Mr. Truman had some interesting things to-say-about the 1944 convention which nominated him a< vice'president and the fact.that he didn't want the nomination.., "Nobody will believe me when I . say that," he said, "but I wan completely surprised. I . tried . te argue with those fellow* at Chicago that I didn't want to be vice president. I told them: 'Lock 'at all the vice presidents in history; Where are they? They wert about as useful as a cow's fifth teat.'" After our television interview ended, Mr. Truman gaid:' "You have forgotten It, but back in 1S40 you wrote a story that I've n#ver forgotten.
