' Only six condors ,were known to exist in 1937. Now the tribe is believed to number about 50.

WRONG gists say this isn't exactly like a human oedipus complex—inordinate love for his feathered mama—but Just a reluctance to learn to fly. He's in no hurry to grow up and collect garbage. Condors are in the prime of life at 20 and live to be 30. One problem in building up their tribe is that condors aren't much interested in sex. They only produce one egg and don't bother to nest every year. They just like to fly around and brood over what is going to die next to make them a meal. They are much'more trouble to the government out here than rabbits, who don't require a private estate and just refuse to become extinct. In 1935 a Los Angeles museum expedition for the .first time took ,wo bunnies out to Anacapa, an is- and 32 miles southeast of here. It was virgin territory for rabbits. In 1940 the expedition returned and found 1,000- rabbits on the 700-acre sland. There's a lesson for the pessimis- ,ic condor. He'll have to learn to have faith in the future- like the rabbit—or else he'll join the van- shed dodo, if the government ever drops him from,the relief rolls. The •abbit is winning out on private enterprise. . Panhandle News PANHANDLE— (Special) — Mrs. Etta Harrington of Now York City is visiting her father, W. M. Bender, and other relatives.

Of course there's nothing in an ordinary inquiry into the operation and financial structure of the press which should cause disquietude. An honest press has nothing to conceal. However, the launching of the present high-powered survey was- preceded by-much pressure f r o m! Communists and] fellow travelers who . to quote the view of (he London Communist Daily press today is a cratic methods of govcnm.cnt. ffi Bd P ( ! al | 5d "adequate reforms w i 1 l£i!Lj l)ou 6h not specified, ob- eling.

' vtoitsly would mean following the Communistic method of placing the press under strfct government regimentation. Thus this investigation i.s likely to provide us with a test case of how far British Socialism is going to carry its program of nationalization which, ipso facto, tends towards totalitarianism. Prime Minister Attlee's government has declared itself against Communism and totalitarianism. Having talked with Mr, Attlee at length and having surveyed his government at close range, I am prepared to accept this as the honest conviction of his regime. However. Mr. Attlee is performing a major experiment in Socialism. He feels that he can make it work, but there certainly is the danger that it may blow up in his face unless he handles it with extreme caution. His task is to demonstrate that there can be Socialism, with ft degree of nationalism but without wholesale regimentation of the individual. But to get back to our muttons, a free press has been one of the mighty pillars of British Democracy. And the press has indeed been free. Even in wartime the censorship has been voluntary. The only legal controls have been vested in laws such as those dealing with libel and an act which Cot-bids newspapers during criminal trials to refer to any previous convictions of the accused. • The present Investigation of the British Press is a matter of far greater moment than appears in the terms of the royal commissions assignment. Should this result in restrictions being imposed on the newspapers, it would render a tremendous disservice to the Socialism which tl»o people of England are giving a, trial. It also would be a warning to the rest of the world that Britain was swinging hard left.
