f AGE 4— THE BAYTOWN SUN, TUESDAY. JANUARY 12. Inside Washington-Johnson Named As Possible Demo Presidentia i nee Special to The Biiytown *un WASHINGTON—The "stalking horse" season has already begun in Washington despite the fact the next presidential nominating conventions are more than two years away. Evidence of this was given by Sen. George Snwthurs (D-Fla.) who listed four men in addition to Illinois ex-Gov. Adlal Stevenson he believes have "an excellent chance" of winning the Democratic nomination. • . He named Sen. Stuart Symington of Missouri, Lyndon B. Johnson pi Texas and Kiehard B. Russell of Georgia, as well as Gov, Frank Lausehe of Ohio. Smathers did not ignore Stevenson as a candidate but he did remark, "It's not at all sure" that the former Illinois governor will win the 1956 nomination. MY NEW YORK LAS VEGAS. Nev.—If you move around the face of the earth some, as I do, among the cold, clear truths th«t stick in your mind is this: when it comes to entertainment, to show business, New York is the bio- time. A singer, a, comic, an actor who makes Manhattan like and applaud him, has hit the top. There are no two ways about it This seems a strange point to bring up here, because day in, day out, this oasis where Duffy's Tavern is an Italian restaurant and where there is a gas-station owner calling himself Terrible Horbst and a used-car man named Boob Jones, is studded with the big-timers. All the ones ; who have hit it big in Gotham—Betty Hutton, Ezio Pisza, Joe E. Lewis Lena Home, et al—play Las Vegas, They can't afford not to. Just the other fortnight Marlene Dietrich got 530,000 a week to wear double decollete gowns and mutter a couple of husky songs, twice a night. However, I bring up my point because of; a slip I suspect Jack Entratter of having made. Entratter, who once ran New York's Copacabana, now operates the Sands hotel here and he operates, it like the bjggest of the big timers, He's spent a million and a half on entertainment An the last year, He spends $20,000 daily to run the Sands, and in 1958 the place cashed $900 million in ohecka. In May, the Sands .gambling casino handled $22 -million in two days, which is claimed as a world record, More than a. million persons have passed through the "place in . the sun," as they advertise It, since. December of • 1952. Jack Entratter does things on the grand scale and there is no mistaking it. THE OTHER NIGHT, however, he brought in a west coast act—Billy Gray, Patti Moore: and Ben Lessey—for one evening in a "week of stars." These three are comics arid let it be reported here that they went over fine thei.r one night here. Back in Los Angeles theyare regulars .at a popular Saloon called The Bandbox, and since 1 the majority of Vegas visitors are Angeltnos, they played to virtually a clique of admirers. They put on the longest night club show. I ever have watched, and, if I became LOOK |NG AT LIFE JUST LET ME show you how easy it is to start m fight-with your wife, and also warn'every married woman, never to rile her husband before he has had at least one cup of coffee.

' "No,""§aid the man, "Monsieur had never viewed me, but I have nerved monsieur and .madame all through the year. I am the person who grease* the elevator." \ JUST THEN SOMETHING went wrong with our toaster. It sizzled a couple of times, up came the lever—and then the toaster went dead. Mind you, I had not yet had my first cup of coffee, and now this accident to my breakfast! I was mod as all — The wife came over to see whether SHE could do anything about the toaster, when I—the master —had not been ab'.e to fix \i. "Yes, those French," she remarked while .busy The Plni-irta senator stressed particularly the virtues of Symington as a possible party standard bearer He said tha Missourlan would very definitely be a strong candidate and declared that the former Air Force secretary would be the most acceptable nominee to many southern groups .in his opinion. Pro-Stevenson Democrats view such statements as that of Smathers as an initial move to swing support away from Stevenson, who still prevails aa titular head of the party. PENTAGON FACT SHEET—The famed Pentagon, headquarters of the Department of Defense, is so bis; that the National Capitol would fit into any of its'" five wedge-shaped sections. . The dcparmtent has. issued a fact sheet on the world's largest office building. Among the interesting statistics; ... The Pentagon is 'twice a$ largei as the-Merchandise Mart in Chicago and has three times the floor apace of the ijlrnpire State building in New York. It has 7,600 windows and 63,000 light fixtures which require 900 electric light bulbs as replacements each day. Operation, maintenance and wpair of the building require the services of 600 people-carpenters, painters, electricians, sign painters, locksmiths, elevator mechanics .and pneumatic tube jrepairmon. The building is only five stories high, but the structure Itself covers 34 acres. Its five concentric rings are connected by 10 spoke-like corridors. Surrounding lawns and terraces' take up-. 200 acres. Two commercial bus companies operate 89i trips in and out of the Pentagon's bus terminal each day. Parking space can accommodate 8,300 vehicles. There- ars 280,000-telephone calls made to 'and from the building every day over 44,000 telephones connectedly 180,000 miles of cable. Daytime popula- tion.of the Pentagon is-30,000. PATRONAGE—There is a growing revolt against the , patronage policies of .the Eisenhower administration and It threatens to explode in the nejct session -of Congress. Sen. Arthur V. .Watkins. (R-Utah) has gone on record as stating that he, will Introduce a bill, if necessary, to get more federal jobs for Republican* In 1954. Watkins declared If there, ia .anything that "can be corrected" by legislation he will toss a bill in the Senate hopper. Leaders of the drive to get more jobs for the Republicans pointed out that the Ntw Deal In Ifc first eight years added more than 280,000 tmployti .without using "civil service li«tl.

Their songs were so double in . entendre as to be almost single. Their routines, so-ne of them, were vulgar. They imitated the lost souls of the third sex endlessly, which in New York went out with the coonskin coat. They were loud and fast, which is the absolute best that could be ; smd for them and my guess is .that the .customers at say, the Cotillion room, of the Pierre or, the Maisonette of the St. Regis would have begun tinklin°' the glasses, rattling the silverware and gossiping among themselves after five minutes. MY FEELING IS THAT Entratter, who was reported to have tried unsuccessfully • to get Van Johnson to return for one of his "week of stars performers-he got everyone else, including Vic Damone, Billy Eckstine and Frank Sinatra—found himself with an open date and threw Gray, Moqre and Lessy in, knowing they would go well and overlooking the probable fact that they weren't his dish of tea. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe he loves them. , However, Entratter is a big-timer and any, other slightly risque act he has presented in his time, such -as say Joe E.

Not only did the President himself emphasize this, but Secretary of Defense Wilson backed him up. . Wilson told how he and his aides in the' Pentagon had prepared a secret 'report relating to cutting down the Army .which .he planned to submit .to the White House. ' "No decision had been reached on this, report because the-President hadn't even read it," the secretary of defense told, the White House conferees. I kept it right on my 'desk. Imagine' our amazement, therefore, when, next day, while it was still on its 'way to the White House, the substace of the report was published in the press. It was the fastest leak I ever saw." "Well, you can't blame that one on the Democrats," pip,ed up Democratic Leader John • McCormack of Massachusetts. HEADLINES AND FOOTNOTES —New York's Gov.

Last May, after a year of hard labor, the well reached a depth of 11,175 'feet, the deepest to be drilled In India. . - At this extreme depth, nearly two and a quarter miles, the temperature of the earth and the pressure of the water-bearing sandi made further drilling inadvisable.
