If he is smarter, works harder, more efficiently — if his skill and conscientiousness are greater than yours •- he deserves your Job.. ;, I am talking about' somebody you have never seen who lives thousands of miles away and who • wants totakeyour jobawayfrom you •• who wants totakeyour Job away from your town and take it home with him! He is the worker in an office or factory in Japan or Germany who is willing to do what you are doing, make what you are making. . .'cheaper. He can afford to. His overhead is less. . His food and rent and clothes and carfare- ire less. So he will work for less. He wants your job. •There is a flood tide of consumer goods manufactured abroad pouring ashore in the United States. Daily. •• Automobiles and barbed wire, watches and textiles and clor thing and plate glass. And where these things come . from labor is so cheap that manufacturers can afford to ship them across an ocean and still sell them for less than you and I can' make the same items here. - ' This Is not a new threat. For generations, however, we lave been protected by tariff barriers which equalized the situation. Our -government charged the importer enough to keep his prices commensurate with ours. Your job was secure. Now, however, the clamor for lower trade barriers, freer trade, has caused us — in the name of" good-'fieighbbrliness and economic aid to allies -to admit millions of tons of merchandise dally — some-of it made by the very man who wants your job! German, wire workers canpro- duce barbed wire, ship it across the Atlantic and sell it in Pits- burgh at $40 a ton less than barbed 'wire made in nearby Donora, Pa. Scores of Donors workers thus have already lost- their jobs. Swiss generators can sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars less than the product of high salaried American electrical workers. So thousands of American electrical -workers find themselves with high salaries but no jobs. 'We are Importing goods, exporting jobs! A company with plants in Texas bought $13 1/2 million worth of benzine from Russia at 6 cents a gallon less thanthesamepro- duct could be bought from neighboring plants in Missouri; Russia has declared economic war on us, and we are thus "trading with the enemy." In military war, there is a very ugly name for such consorting. During the fall of 1958 there were 9,000 tons of steel from Russia .delivered to the Port of Houston at $40 less than the asking price for American steel. American steelworkers, who think * pay hike will solve their problems, should be sure they are not, instead, compounding their problems. WASHINGTON SCENE- Loaned Like Own Dough By GEORGE DKON WASHINGTON -- I had noidea international bankers were so affable nor so overflowing with love one for another. Then I went to the Sheraton- Park Hotel where world bankers of 68 nations were disbursing honeyed words, if not money, and practically had to claw my way out of the cloyness. Sixty-eight bankers at the annual meeting of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund prepared statements praising one another 'and Eugene R. Black, World Bank president. That adds up to a lot of statements, and when you consider there were several thousand mimeographed copies of each you can understand that the bankers were literally up to their ears in sweetness.

The. handouts were so mountainous that Miss Barbara Norton, the cute little brunette who does publicity'for the Sheraton- Park, vanished behind one of the peaks and there was talk of sending a St. Bernard after her until she reappeared snowcapped with eulogies. I am convinced, from everything I noted, that the officials of the Bank and Fund justly merit all this adulation. One of theprincipalcomplaints I heard against them is that they have been malting loans as if it was their own money they were risking. We should have more complaints like that against . Americans engaged in foreign dealings. I was informed that President Black questions a country about a loan application the -way a village banker questions a farmer who may want to buy something he may never be able to pay for. Black says to an applicant country: "What you want this dough for?" "Wanna build a steel mill." •ays the applicant country. "You got any coal?" "Nope." "Then you can't make a steel lill pay.

When the Convaii sets down at the little airstrip, you smell the air .and look at the green hills and the fields of sugar cane and you figure they have told 'you right. You climb into a limousine and the man tooling it along the shady roads is a guitar- playing, cotton-picking ban vivant narned Mike, who wandered across the United States in a service uniform during the war and admits freely that New York staggered him and he never fully recovered from it. Mike is half-Hawaiian, half-English and his jokes are on the corny aide, but he is a hip one and his descriptions of Kaui as you roll along are pungent and pertinent .» • • • BUT THE MAIN THING—ah, the main thing is that, after lolling around Waikiki for a few days and being a little let down at its commercial whoopla, you finally have come across a part of Hawaii that lives up to the travelogues. Back in Honolulu, the atmosphere seemed to have been phony and canned; indeed, the very orange and pineapple juice at breakfast has been, according to the shamefaced waitress, out of a tin. But here, as you drift along around the edges of the big Island and breathe in the smell—"You'll remember that, long after you've left Hawaii," a friend bad counseled—and look at the fruit trees and the cane fields and the long, deserted beaches with the breakers mushing in gently, you sense that this is how it must have been before the advertising and publicity men moved in. You almost can see the war canoes and the native ceremonies and the beautiful girls, although as you tool along, th» only girls you see are enveloped in the dreadful, shapeless muu-muiw. There is a peaceful buffet lunch at the Coco Palms, a luxury- tope hotel, a little ride on 4 lagoon in an outrigger, which you almost tip over, and then at last back to the airport—along a peacef" . untouched-by-human-hands road that suddenly offers the ; jarring sign in the world: SPEED CHECKED BY RADAR. TUESDAY ON TV SCIENCE TODAY Silence Can Cause Panic By DELOS SMITH UPI Science Editor NEW YORK (UPI) - "Perfect silence" ls'» new addition to scientific efforts to find out how the mind stands up when cut off from normal contact with the world. The theory is that the mind must be constantly bombarded with sensorial contacts -. -..smells, sights, touches, and sounds ,- if it is to stay awake and aware of its relationships to people and things around it and if it is to adapt itself Intelligently to those .people and things* .-••-. . ..Scientists have experimented wjth people/and "sensory deprivatiorr" without .-producing any really clear-cut results. Their subjects were deprived completely of smells, sights, and touches but there was some question that .they were deprived of sounds. V', The usual method was to maintain a steady, even "white noise" (produced by sound generators) which "masked" every other sound that could have reached their ears. But this was anything but complete deprivation, so scientists S. Smith and W. Lewty set about creating "perfect silence." • They began with three rooms on the Isolated top floor of an isolated hospital building. Walls, ceiling, and floors were insulated with sound- absorbing materials. In one room they suspended a heavily insulated cubicle approximately nine feet square and nine feet high. It hung on ropes to prevent any kind of sound from reaching it by vibration. Tests proved the silence in-this cubicle was indeed "perfect." A second room was an ob- servation room with * one-way window 'connecting it to the cubicle, and the third, was a bathroom. . The scientists then bribed nurses' and other hospital employes with the offer of a paid vacation equal to the time they spent in the cubicle undergoing "sensory deprivation". They got 20 volunteers, 11 women and nine men. In .the cubicle, the volunteer wore opaque goggles to block sight, fur-lined gloves and gauntlets to blur out touch, and, of course, there > was neither smell nor sound to convey anything to the mind; The goggles and gloves came off only when the subjects were fed; they weregoggled when led periodically to.the bathroom. 'They-'could open the door if they wished to • leave the. cubicle, but the idea .was .that they should stay as long as they could in the interest of science and also to earn a longer paid vacation. All of them reached thepoint where they couldn't stand it. .One woman stood it for 92 hours, »1- most four days and nights, A man and a woman had had enough.after less than six.hours. Unbearable anxiety terminated the deprivation in all cases; in" five anxiety amounted to panic. All 20 began their deprivation by sleeping, and most slept for long periods, supporting the idea that the mind must be stimulated by the senses to maintain consciousness. In all 18 who stayed any length of time, thinking became disordered, beginning with their inability to concentrate, and ending in "a complete disorganization of thought." The scientists are English and reported in the technical journal, "The Lancet." They suggested to American and Canadian colleagues who have experimented with "sensory deprivation" that the "perfect silence" might be why they obtained clear-cut and uniform results in all subjects..

The foundation's sharp pencil accountants come j with facts and figures which sometimes luminate the endless arguments here in Washigton about how much government should spend >r what. One of these, arguments has been lusually angry. The dispute was about spending government ?ney for educational purposes. Reduced to its simplest form: The Democrats nted to spend and the. Republicans didn't. A disagreement like that, of course, could be rked out on the basis of two factors: (1) Is j spending necessary, and (2) Can theTreasury OTAJOiW,,* CHANNEt, A CKANNM.' \\ S5*^!S' l fl KMtC-XV A Ktmyrv 9 XOUWtV II JMMMtV •* ilM A Looney Town (D Early Show— "Monte Carlo Baby," Audrey Hepburn, Jules Manshift (Q American Bandstand 4:M O Boio, the Clown 4its O Topper a:W ID Kittrlk's Showtime tilt B San Francisco Beat B:M O News, Sports .

"Chrissy is a bright, alert lad," was the comment, "but I believe he .spends too much -tima playing with the girls. However, I am working ._ v • on a nlan which I be- f^tf .Jf^^ .* afford it? The disputants could not agree, however, on the answers to those two questions. Tax Foundation, Inc., doesn't answer these questions, but it offers some interesting figures which compare in terms of percentages the increased enrollment in the schools and the educational purposes. The foundation reported that from 1940 to 1959, enrollment increased 38.2 per cent. Revenue for current spending in the same period increased 124.1 per cent. Current spending per pupil in average daily attendance increased almost four times over since the school year which ended in 1940. Teachers' salaries was the major factor in this increase, the foundation reported, adding: "The average salary reached in this past school year was 35 per cent greater than that of 1950 and 65 per cent higher than 1940's average. These advances in salary have generally outstripped living cost increases in the period." TS THE LAW Agent Acts for Another ractically all business transactions of every J depend upon the services of agents of one. J or another. four insurance man is an agent and so is the n who sells you real estate, or' delivers your jceries, or drives your bus. These are t a few examples and each under the law of •jicy is somewhat different. Jut they have in common the idea that, in some y or another, they represent or act for someone ;e. The person or corporation for which they t is known as the principal. Generally spealting, therearetwobroadclasses agents--special agents and general agents. For example, suppose you wish to sell your use and you engage a realtor, to handle it for u. He is a special agent who represents you i this transaction alone. On the other hand, if you were to be absent ;om the city for a long period of time and have jsiness affairs to be ca. ed for, you might grant i power of attorney to a close associate to act in your place as fully as if you were present. He woiild be your-g' leral agent and corld use his own ju'- ,-. ail ai-1 discretion in c-- '-ing your affairs .without consulting you as to what should be done with any old or new problem, that might arise. .-,'.. However, the principal is responsible for the conduct of his agent, either general or special, if the agent is in the process of doing what he has beui hired to do. .Tims, if the agent is acting within his "scope of authority", and someone is injured through the agent's negligence, the principal is liable. Very often difficult legal questions arise as to whether the conduct of the agent was within the '.'scope of his authority", and thus binding upon the principal.. For example, suppose the grocer's delivery boy while enroute to a customer's home, and despite the grocer's instructions to stick to business while on deliveries, decided to go a mile or so out of his way to see his girl about a date that night. He drives through a stop- sign and hits a pedestrian. Is the grocer responsible °Though this is one of the areas of the law that can. be very complex, at the same time it is one of the areas of the law where fairness, -common sense, and common understanding are. most important. lieve will break him of the habit." Chris' rn other acknowledged receipt of the report and added this note of her own: "Let .me know if your plan, works, and I'll try it on his' father." The passenger in Upper Berth Number' T ps-s-s-ed the conductor and asked, .. "WiU you please bring 1 me a glass of water?" ' "That's the tenth glass o£ water you've demanded in the part 20 minutes," protested the conductor, "I never heard el any* body drinking so much'water." "I'm not drinking it," s»ld the passenger.
