Hank sits with Hy Gardner and Arthur Godfrey and Jimmy Powers and they talk sports and gossip and the world of news and politics, but there is no clue in this. Sometimes, they walk out at night on the front porch and stand beside the green-lighted swimming pool to watch a full moon come up over Indian Creek. The lew.things I know about happiness are nebulous. It drugs the senses. The more one chases it or looks for it, the less chance there is of finding it. I saw-it in the eyes of a copy desk editor bending over a story with a pen- cil in his hand and an eyeshad* on his forehend. I didn't ask where he found it. He wouldnt tell anyway. I've seen It in a little boy . standing primly before his father with a good report card from school. I've seen it in the downcast eyes of many brides and I saw it in my mother's blind eyes.

AROUND THE CAPITAL: Washington society columns bemoaned the dimunition by one of the ranks of most eligible bachelors in the nation's capital — when Beaumont Congressman Jack Brooks was married Dec 15 in Cahieron, Tax., to Charlotte Collins of that city. She was a secretary in the office oi Houston's Hep. Bob Casey. Brooks is 38, the bride 25.

Casey has 9 children, Carey 11. There's the usual hubbub In Senate and House office buildings these days as outgoing members pack their belongings and leave and remaining members look for a better suite. Seniority determines choice. Rep. Wright Patman oi Texarkana recently moved into the most desirable suite in the New House Office Building, one ot the ground level near the front lobby. Convenient to committee rooms, post office and nearest to the Capitol, it had been occupied by the late Rep. Edith Nourse Rogers. She came to Congress in 1925, Patman in 1929. Speaker Sam Hayburn of Bonham, dean of the House, has both his official Speaker's suite and his congressional district office suite in the Capitol. There are six other congressmen with seniority over Patman, but they choose to keep suites near committees on which they serve. Rayburn, who came to Congress March 4, 1913, will be 79 Jan. 6. Next to him in seniority is Rep. Carl Vinson of Georgia, who was sworn in Nov. 3, 1914. He is 77. TRY FACTS CLASSIFIEDS.' Editorial: ANALOGY OfPICrS WORD SCENE; SHOWS PUBLIC RELATIONS NEED Our true place as individuals in this huge world is sometimes hard to realize, especially when we are told that its population is soaring toward the three billion mark. An analogy, suggested by Dr. Henry S. Lieper ol the World Council of Churches, may •{ Kelp to put things' In p'erspective. . % 'Imagine the world reduced to a village of 1,000 persons. In it there would be 60 Americans, who would receive halt the town's income. The 940 remaining persons would share the other hall of the income. . About 330 of the townfolk would be classified as Christians. Eighty people would be Communists and 370 otters would be under Communist domination. There would be 300 white people; 700 non-whites. The 60 Americans would have a life expec- Capita/ Highlights. tancy of 70 years; the other 940 an average oMess than 40 years. From this analogy one might readily gain a picture of the seriousness of this nations foreign policies, and their effect on the nation's future. . ,. Picture such a.village in reality, with the 60 Americans^ivirig in luxury behind-a heay-v ily-fortified wall; and most of the'rest of the village living in slums by comparison, with a sizeable portion slowly but purposefully acquiring the means for breaching tne W Such a picture should show the limitations of the American privilege of disagreement and conflict among its own people, and the need lor a unified program of public relations toward the friends living beyond the protective walls. STATCHOUSf TURNOVER IS SMALL By'VEBN SANFOKD Texas Press Association AUSTIN, Tex. — Beginning al an odd-numbered year brings a "changing of the guard" at th> statehouse. this year will be few, with Gov. Price Daniel, Lt. Gov. Ben Ramsey and Atty. Gen. Will Wilson continuing in their present oflices. No. 1 change will be in the Supreme Court. Chief Justice John E. Hickman, 76, is retiring after a 50-year legal career, including 34 years of appellate court service. Judge Hickman will be succeeded by Robert W. Calvert, now an associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Succeeding Calvert will be Zollie Steakley, who has served .is Secretary of State since 1957. He will be sworn in on Jnuary 3, in ihe Supreme Court Room of the State Courts Building in Austin. A reception and informal Open House will be held in the State Bar Building. The public Is invited for both occasions. Court of Criminal Appeals will get a new Judge, also. W, T. McDonald ol Bryan will succeed Judge Lloyd Davidson, defeated at the polls last summer. McDonald will be sworn in January 2 in Bryan, in the district courtroom where he has presided ns judge for the past five years. His brother, Reed McDonald, a notary public, will administer the oath. Already sworn in and ready 10 go when his term as land commissioner begins on January 1 is Jerry Sadler. Mrs. Dorothy Ilallman, chief clerk of the House of Representatives in which Sadler served three terms, gave the path. Sadler was sworn injiear- . iy two weeks ahead oi time in order to be "ready." He defeated the incumbent, Bill Allcorn. HOME WORK — While they're ' still home, members ol the next Legislature can take their minds oil Christmas bills by studying Governor Daniel's proposed budget for state government. It calls tor spending S3T6,000,- 000 from the general revenue fund for the 1962-fi3 biennlum. This is $54,000,000 more than wan appropriated for the present • V but to 49 BBS cent less than the agencies requested. It does not include any funds for public-school-teacher pay raises, a recommendation which the governor said he will present alter the legislature con- Governor Daniel will propose a $600 a year increase per teacher, adding approximately $94,000,000 to the state's two-year costs. This $94,000,000 plus the $54,000,000 increase above, plus the $76,000000 general revenue fund deficit, adds up to a $224,000,000 problem which the new legislature will face. MAVERICK TO RUN — Latest to announce for the U. S. Senate seat to be vacated by Sen. Lyndon Johnson is Maury Maverick of San Antinio, former member of the Texas House of Representatives. The former legislator from San Antonio is a member oi the State Democratic Executive Committee, and son of the late Congressman and Mrs. Maury Maverick of the Alamo City.

Jim Wright of Fort Worth; Former Senator William A. Blakley of Dallas; State Senator II e n ry Gonzalez of San Antonio and John G Tower of Wichita Falls. YOUTH PROGRAM GOALS Texas Youth Council will urge the next Lgislature to enact a six- point program to cut down on the number of Texas youngsters wtio "turn out bad." Goals are:l. Adequate funds to operate the state training schools and orphan homes; 2. A juvenile parole system to provide supervision for youngsters released from training schools; 3. A state home for dependent and neglected Negro children; 4. Local yotilli councils to work with delinquents and to help prevent development ol delinquency; 5. Testing and guidance programs to spot problem children before they become delinquents; 8. More job opportunities for youngsters to keep them out of trouble. « Higlf way Department agents seeking to buy land for rights of way cannot "dicker" with land owners over prices. Commissioner DeWitt C. Greer re-stated this policy in reviewing a>i instance in which a landowner eventually t,ul Ui Wf-ul !•• •<*!;•' >"'•-••' times what the Department originally offered for the land. Though dickering might have saved stale money in this case, Highway officials feel that giving more than a thousand- different agents authority to "barter" with state money would create many more inequities. Commission policy Is to have an appraisal made and offer tha amount indicated by the appraisal. Landowners who do not feel this price is fair can seek a better one in court. SHORT SNORTS — Women seen- ing to attend Texas A & M College have struck out again. U. 3. Supreme Court refused to review state court decisions upholding A & M's all-male status Texas Employment Commission reports a creeping up ol joblessness in Texas.
