PAGE 4 — , THE BAYTOWN SUN, SATURDAY. JANUARY 16, 1954 Inside Washington- No Matter What You Call it, It's Still Business Slump Special to The Baytown Sun WASHINGTON • Opinions expressed about the nation's economy aren't quite as much at odds with each other as it would seem. Actually, they are all saying just about the same thins when one economist states that the United States is suffering from a "recession," another calls it a "temporary adjustment" and a third says it's an 'inventory 8 tl^an-ee that something has disappeared from the economic scene-the momentum of spending sat off by the Korean war which pushed industrial activity to record levels during the spring and early • summer of 1953. ' "•• • Up-to then, .merchants, had to scurry about to load up their shelves '.nth consumer goods. Since late summer, they found that these goods wcrent movin" as fast as the merchants had hoped. So, re- tailers are now allowing their stocks to empty out a little. When the shelves ere finally unjammed and consumers start asking for goods the merchant doesn't have, production schedules will probably take an. upturn. That's what most economists believe will happen, and it's the theory on which government officials are basing their optimism. Nevertheless, however, the administration is reported to be preparing- precautionary measures against a serious. drop in business activity. Some sources believe that the very knowledge that these measures would be used in the event of a depression will itself be enough to head off any downward spiral in the nation's economy. ENGINES NEEDED — The recent flight of the Bell X-1A, which reached a record speed of more than 1,600 miles an hour at Edwards Air Force base in California, has .pointed up a problem facing defense officials—how to obtain engines capable of propelling the jet supersonic planes. Not only the Bell aircraft is affected. There is also the Douglas X-3 Flying Stillcto, which has been undergoing basic testing by famed Bill Bridgeman, first man ever to fly more than 1,000 miles an hour. The X-3 was resigned for speeds of over 2,000 miles an. hour and possibly to fly at three times the speed of'sound. However, no engine has yet been produced to power it at such high speeds. . ' •. Pentagon officials are doing all they can _to rs- move.. T many of the bottlenecks that are holding up production of rocket research iplanes. ECHOING BOOM — Sen. George D. Aiken (R-Vt.), is as proud of New England's virtues, beauties awfl history as ahy.man. ' '.-..'. Therefore, when he was governor of his state some years ago, he was particularly pleased about visiting Fort Ticonderoga in New York—where'' Ethan Allen's Green Mountain Boys of Vermont, had scored, teir decisive victory in the Revolutionary war. : As he tells the story, Aiken was ^welcomed to Ticonderoga by ;the booming of .cannon—"a 17 or 18- gun salute." Aiken was" really pleased, but.several weeks'later, he says, "They sent me the bill for the powder." It was about 10 dollars. MILITARY. AID — At" the request-of Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel (R-Calif.),.the Pentagon is going to the aid of winter vegetable gardeners in. California's Imperial valley. The Defense department has •promised to turn over to the truck farmers its unusable stocks of surplus parachute flares and 'grenade star clusters They are used to keep the ducks and geese from tha vegetable crops. • " 'President Eisenhower's speaking style for'a recent television appearance was 'coached by Robel-, Montgomery,. TV producer-actor.' Wonder if thi : - preaagse the use of the two-platoon system in pol» tical oratory? . , New, York garbage removers strike is keeping New Jersey hogs from properly fattening. Well,"-w- could stand some lean bacon. Who says the Japanese aren't original? ,A group of workmen in Tokyo are threatening to strike for longer hours! • SUN SLANTS By Fred Hartman ALL KINDS OF WEATHER A CUSTOMER AT The Bsytown Sun ofnce just. about noon Friday left by -way of the front door arc witn this parting remark: "I don't know whether' to wear a raincoat, ar. overcoat, no coat or go home and get an electric fan.'* : That'' was a pretty good description of the -.veath- er, all right. We had cloudy weather, sunshine and , rain all within a space of five minutes. GOtTERNOK GETS SET IN BRINGING IN Jimmy Banks to his executive staff, Gov. Allan Shivers might have been pretty smart. . '' For the past year Banks has been editorial director of the "Texas State Teachers group. You might say, without being unfair, that Jimmy almost was in the .position of being in a .position of reading the teacher's mail. He certainly had to know what was going on if he were going to edit the teacher .. , Now. maybe he will give the governor the benefit -of some of 'his background knowledge. We don't see how he can-keep from it He certainly should be in-' a position to advise the governor on school .matters. And about all the school matters the governor needs .any advice on is that little matter of raising; teacher pay to some point between S300 a year (which ', the teachers didn't want) to $600 a year (which the tsachers wanted but didn't get). , Here's wishing -the governor and Jimmy Banks the best, 'because we want to see the teachers get the best possible deal. HIGH CQCKT HOLDS KEY — IF THE U.S. 'Supreme Court would just rule favor-; ably on that appeal from the state's -tax levy on- natural gas, life would be much more simple in the state. There would .tie about 510,000,000 more in the state's till every year; The teachers would get a good part of that amount,- and, there would still be .some left over for other needs. The state can't go ahead and pass some other kind of tax bill to raise the money as long, as the • constitutionality .of this bill is hanging fire. So the' people of Texas have a right to wish the high court would put in a few overtime lick* this •prlng. Or even this winter. ' BIG STATE •PROBLEM IN A TAXI ride around the grounds of the state capitol in Austin the other morning, we came to the conclusion that one of the biggest problems in Austin at the moment is parking. When the bosses .of another era traded off all that land in West Texas for 'the capitol building, they didn't have to give much thought to parking. Now It is a problem that won't quit. LOOKING AT LIFE BENJAMIN DISRAELi said. "There are three kinds of 'lies: Lies, damn lies, and atatiitics." I don't know the difference between lies and damn lies, but as Jong as a man as wise as Disraeli *aid it, it must be so. Maybe he meant.that reKU- lar lies are what, we. call white lies, but'that damn lies are the lies we LIVE. But there isn't much difference between' damn lies and a lot of the statistics we have thrown at us every day in the week. Take this "statistic" about the living index (whatever that may be) going down % of one per cent. Just take that statistic to your grocer some time:: "That may be all right as far as Washington' is : concerned," he will probably tell you. "But in my •tore.'.the living index has gone DP 10 per cent!' It docs you no good to wave the government •tatistic in his face. With the living index; down you pay 10 cents per pound more or you don't. get; ; .any steak! . ' - • • '•-. : 'THE TROUBLE WITH statistics U that they de-, pend largely upon the statements of people and people don't always tell you: the truth. Like these television polls. I was called on the phone the other night, and asked to what program I .was listening at the time. I wasn't listening to any since our new dog had just started again to chew on a rug and I was "reasoning" with him at the time. But, just to satisfy the inquirer, I said, "I'm listening to the Boston Pops orchestra." That Jounded as if I were quite a civilized statistic, while 'in reality I was only a damn liar. : The other day a national magazine, whose publisher went to Yale, published a statistic that "the average Yaleman, class '24, makes $25,111 a year." you have any business to attend to in the big 'sranite building, we suggest you leave your car ekfcer at home or in a parking lot. If you don't you are liable to find out that you have to park so fir axvay from the building it might have been easier for you to have given your business to some other state. 10 TEARS OF WACO-GENERAL IT WAS JUST'about 10 years ago this next week that we made a trip to Waco to watch General Tire and Rubber Co. stage its formal opening of the rubber plant there. That's the plant we heard that Waco got and Baytown lost during the war because the labor pool in Waco was supposed to have been less critical than that in Baytown at the time. Anyhow. 10 long years have passed, and now General is all set on Jan. 20—1 believe it is—to observe its 10th birthday of the Waco installation. All of which causes us to. say that time sure does take off. It doesn't seem in a way that it was over a few weeks ago that we made that jaunt. We regret that it will not be possible for us to be on hand, even though we are proud possessors of an engraved invitation. We recall that 10 years ago we were guests at a barbecue at the home of Frank Baldwin, then editor of -the 'Waco News-Tribune. Frank; didn't-live out that 10-year span. He will be conspicuous by his absence at this year's party. And there will, be many on hand for this 10th birthday who won't be around to answer the bell when birthday No. 20 rolls around 10 years hence. Time marches on. We sure wish them many happy returns and ' many nappy Waco tires in the future. If we couldn't have the plant here in Baytown, we don't know anywhere we'd, rather it would be than up there on the Brazos. . . SCOTT TO ACT QUICKLY WE WERE NOT surprised to note that District Attorney William H. Scott-had promised a second trial quickly for Clyde Pierson. The state had'a cinch conviction, and it really lost the case when the jurors couldn't agree on the punishment. " Convictions in murder cases are mighty hard to get in Harris County these days. So you can bet your bottom dollar that when a. DA feels he has a conviction rather cinched, he can be expected to push for speedy trial. Hence, the Scott statement was not unexpected. Baytown police who had to sit in the courtroom all day and then work all night are sorry the case'- was not* disposed of. As few 24-hour shifts as possible are what the Baytown officers want You can't blame thr-m for that. Washington Merry-Go-Round— Columnist Defends Truman On 'Red Herring 1 Statement DECEMBER HARMONY—JANUARY REALITY? By Erich Brandeis Long One Better-Cow's Head Is Tip-Off On Milk Production • It just so happens that I have four Yalemcn among my acquaintances. One is a drunk and never made more than a few thousand dollars a year. He owes money to most of his friends, and, I understand, he beats his wife. At least she is •nine'him for divorce. •' " The other three have nothing fundamentally wrong with them, but none 1 of them makes anywhere near $28,111 a year. The natural inference was, of course, that ALL Yalemen «e successful. Incidentally, two of the four I'know, carry the clipping from the magazine in their wallets. Thus they don't have to lie to anybody that they make $25.111 annually—they just show the clipping. " .'..,,•,' Mind.you Irhave absolutely nothing against Yale- men. The same statistic could just as Well appiy to Harvard, Cornell, Princeton, Dartmouth or Podunk. I only use it as an example. ACCORDING TO A NEW book just out titled "How to' Lie-With 'Statistics,", a government statement, based on elaborate research, came out In 1930 and doubted that the U.S. population would ever reach 140 million^ It was 12 million more than that by 1950. In his second message to Congress, President Lin. coin predicted that the U.S. population would reach 251 million by 1930. He also based that on thorough government research. Darrell Huff, the author of the book, advises you to ask the following questions when confronted with a statistic: "Who says so?" "Why?" "How does he know?". And I suggest that you realize that YOU are not a statistic. Human beings are much more difficult to classify than statistics. DATELINE: HOLLYWOOD B Y Aline Mosby Editor's'Note: A former inmate of *n orphan«Re who became a famous movie star married one of the greatest, ''baseball players of all time Thursday. In two dispatches, the United Press details the lives and loves-of Marilyn Stonro« and Joe DiMaggio. Here Marilyn calls herself a onMnan woman. WHEN MARILYN MONROE smiled at Joe DiMaggio over a wedding ring, it was the first time Hollywood's favorite blonde had made headlines in the romance department. Ava Gardner has wed three times. Lana Turner and Kita Hayworth four. But the loves of Marilyn have been few. Marilyn single-handedly brought new prosperity to the calendar business and. revived sex in the ' movies, but she has only, one teenage marriage and two fatherly-type friendships behind her. At 15, the then freckle-faced girl married the boy next door, but in later years she confessed the four-year marriage was partially to escape from a life of shuttling from one foster home to another. Marilyn .started life !n an orphanage because her mother was ill and her father dead. She had 11 sets of foster, parents before she was 16. She felt unwanted, unloved. , Marilyn and seaman Jim Dougherty were happy, and she even packed love notes in his lunch box. He went off to war, so she got a job in a parachute factory. A picture in the company magazine led to modeling jobs and movie contract. When Jim came .home, Marilyn was interested in a different life. She got a. Las Vegas divorce. Daugherty, now a policeman in suburban Van Nuya, remarried and has three children. Romance No. 2 for Marilyn: Agent Johnny Hyde, He gave her encouragement "and took me seriously," she has said, when nobody else helped the shy, 'naive girl. Hyde loved Marilyn but she never married him'"because I'll never marry a man I don't really love." He died four year* ago. *. ^ a ' Today's Bible Verse AMD DID all drink the same spiritual drink: for th«y drank of that spiritual. Rock that followed them: and that Rock" was Christ. I Corinthians 10:4 As Marilyn's career brightened, she concentrated en hard work. Instead of dating movie actors and executives as do other starlets, she went to night school to get the education she'd never had. Hot- only close friend then was Joseph Schenck, executive at 20th Century Fox Studio where she later landed a contract. Marilyn often was a beautiful addition at his parties, but they insisted they were pnly friends. - • • ,, Then one day nearly two years ago, agent David March asked Marilyn if she'd meet a pal of his on a blind date at an Italian restaurant. "I have a date to meet an interesting fellow. He s a baseball player and he's famous,'' the excited beauty told a studio friend. Over spaghetti and wine, Marilyn and Joe decided they liked each other. "I liked his seriousness." said Marilyn, "I can spot a phony and this man was real. We came separately to the date but we left together—ahead of everybody else." The blonde and the baseball player began going steady" because, as Marilyn put it, "I'm a one-man woman. When I meet a man 1 like. I want to be with him all the time." When their romance hit print, publicity-shy Joe ran for cover. Next: Joe may he a hidden husband in Hollywood.

NICHOLS WASHINGTON, Jan. ie — UP— The experts m* dairy animals now are looking at' the heads of cows to determine bow much milk they will prpduce. For that, you have the word of the Agricultural Research Administration. Cow experts made an intensive study of animals at th e Beltsville, Md., research center . of. the Department of Agriculture, in co-operation with 20 co-operating state experiment stations. Some 350 Hoi- stein and 345 Jersey cows were measured from tail to-big. brown eyes. , The department came' to this conclusion: A cow with a long head is apt to give' more milk a year than one with a short head. "This also was true of similar studies qf other groups of heifers and cows at Beltsville," it said. That doesn't mean you should ask your milk man U the cow that produced your quart of milk wore a long head or a short one. As one expert put it: "The milk you" get delivered from the dairy at home doesn't come from the same cow. It's a' co-opera live effort since all of the milk is put in one big bucket." . The department reports incidentally, that a cow which does not produce 5,000 pounds of milk a year—two and a hatt tons—isn't worlh. her hay. mash, and salt. "She barely makes her owner a profit," the department said. The overall report—apart from the measurements of heads and other parts of the cows—involved Trv And Stop Me By Bennett Cerf FORMIDABLE Leopard Stokowski, orchestra conductor of the first rank, relaxed long enough after one concert to admit that, while strolling along a path in the Pvockics one vacation day, he suddenly noticed a huge grizzly- ambling toward him.

By DREW PEARSON WASHINGTON —Unaccustomed as I am to defending Harry Truman, I; find it difficult to join in the anvil chorus now throwing dead cats at Harry .every time he opens his mouth. I refer to some of the editorials by old political enemies such as the Scripps- Howard newspapers calling him a liar regarding his famed "red herring" remark^ " . Now I have no personal axe to grind in defending Mr, Truman. During the years he was in the White House I probably got under his skin 'more than any other newspaperman, as he indicated quite vitriolicly in public, and even more vigorously in private. During my many years in journalism I haven't had too many people threaten to shoot me, but Harry • Truman was one of those who savs he talked 1 about it. However, in all fairness let's *".t the record straight .regarding Mr. Truman's red herring remark and some of the other things he did regarding Communism. The much, controverted incident took place at a press conference on Aug. 5, 1948. The then President had been nominated for reelection in Philadelphia, just as . Congress was adjourning"—a Congress which rushed out of Washington anxious to mend 1 fences and start campaigning for re-election. In the face of this desire, Mr. Truman called the Republican- controlled Congress hack into special session and literally rubbed its nose in the dirt by demanding that it finish its work and pass jaws for the control of prices. Instead, the Un-American Activities committee started a probe of Alper Hiss, at that time serving under John Foster Dulles as head of the Carnegie Foundation. THE FATAL QUESTION—It was against this backdrop of the seething- 80th Republican controlled Congress, that Harold Staccy, of the Columbus Dispatch, a stanch pro-Taft newspaper, asked the famous red herring question. Stacey had never asked a press- conference question before and never has since. But according to the microfilmed' records of the Washington Post, this is what he said: "Do you think the Capitol Hill spy hearings are a good thing or a red herring to divert attention from the anti-inflation program?" To this Truman replied: "Yes, I do. They are simply a red herring to keep from doing what they ought to do." Later permission was asked to quote him directly on this, and he granted permission. At that time Republican leaders did not pick up the red herring remark as a campaign slogan. It wasn't considered important. For at, that time Alger Hiss was almost unknown as far as the general public was concerned, and Joe McCarthy hadn't realized what a campaign issue he could develop. The Un-American Activities hearings wore then being conducted by Dick Nixon, now vice president, and Karl Mundt, now senator from South Dakota, and they were being conducted without the hane- fit of loudspeakers and television. TRUMAN WON — Some people may even recall that Mr. Truman ran for re-election after the red herring press conference and won, making me, among others, eat crow. I had predicted he would lose. The issues at the time were economic—prices and farm problems —not red herrings or Communism. It was not until two years later, when Joe McCarthy took up the megaphone with his sensational arid still unproven charge of "205 card-carrying Communists" known to Dean Acheson in the State Department, that the issue really got hot. And as a result, a good part of the American public today thinks that it was Joe McCarthy . who put Alger Hiss in jail. On the contrary, it was Mr. Truman's Justice Department. WHAT TRUMAN SAID- —.What Mr. Truman told me in' the TV interview which resurrected the red herring debate-was this: • "In a press conference one morning some young man who had never been at a press conference before, during the session of the 80th Congress, asked me if the action of the Un-American Activ- . ities committee was not in the '.. form of a red herring to cover up what the Republican administra- '. tion of the 80th Congress had not done, and I said it might be. And that was'where it (the red her- ' ring'debate) s'tarted. "I never made any statement that there was a red ; herring, although the Republicans, when they're ...in power, always try to . cover up their mistakes by attacking somebody or. some institution." Mr. Truman would have been more accurate of course, if he had said he hadn't "initiated" the red herring remark, had merely concurred in it. But he was speaking from memory of something that' happened five and a half years ago. ' Anyway that's the background of how the boys paused in the middle of the State of the Union message and its important congressional aftermaths to go back to our favorite pasttime of throwing dead cats at Harry Truman. I admit it used to be a lot of fun, but now I think we of the press should show more originality in picking targets. Note: In an early column, if permitted, I hope to report some other tilings Mr. Truman told me about Communists in government, which will probably touch off more fireworks.
