— THE BAYTOV/N SUN, TUESDAY, JANUARY I?, I$54 Highlights From Austin- Decision On Special Session Due This Week By VEKN SAOTORD Texas Press Association AUSTIN A decisive turn on the question of » •pecial session of the Legislature was due this week as a state committee considered a way out on the teacher pay problem. J W Edgar, commissioner of education, had announced a week's delay in the all-important meeting because some of the 25 members could not be foresent. . Before Uie committee was a compromise plan to give teachers a S402 salary increase and require local districts to pay a percentage rather than fixed amount of basic school costs. Governor Allan Shivers indicated that if the committee agreed on the plan he would ask the views of legislators and then make bis decision about calling a sepciai session. A sub-committee and most Texas school administrators previously reported their approval of the plan. JN VIEW OF the prospect for a special session, a potential candidate for governor continued his sideswipes at the Shivers administration. Ralph W. Yarborough, Austin attorney, declared that the governor should call special elections to fill vacancies in the House of Representatives. Yarborough was defeated by the governor in the last campaign for the office. Governor Shivers replied that "the governor's of- MY NEW YORK NEW YORK — Well, now, if you live in Butler, Pa., or. Goose Creek. Tex., and are planning one swift week in Manhattan soon, during which you will take in as many shows as the exchequer can bear, the situation is something like this: The musicals, all in all, are nothing to write home about. Having- watched most of John Murray Anderson's "Almanac" from the wings one brisk afternoon, I recommend tbat one as the best in town (and theater-going, of course, is an immensely personalized business; there is' no accounting for tastes, and I even know a man who considers Bobby Clark AND the Rit'z brothers funny). . However, England has sent New York a superior burlesque-type clown in Hermione Gingoldi and .there is also in "Almanac" a bright, young funny man named Orson Bean who does a monologue of two Chinese eating in an American restaurant ("no matter how much Melican food you eat, you always hungry one hour later"). "Kismet" is lavish in "The King and I" fashion but has. alas,.no .Gertrude Lawrence. And I already have had a couple of arguments over Alfred Drake's singing voice, which. I claim is on the reedy side. "Ms and'Juliet" and "Wonderful Town" still are around from last season and there are a. couple of high spots in the Abe Burrows show "CanCan," notably Gwen Verdon's dancing. . It may be that the best musical, show is being put on" by Victor Borge, who accomplishes the mir- acle'of the decade by doing a one-man show at the Golden, theater and keeping audience* in their seats 'iftll night Mr. B. is very funny." v .• . , • .'•... IF YOU WANT to see the country's first actor, you may; Maurice Evans still is doing that ha'-penny thriller, "Dial M for Murder." He has agreed with me that 50 actors could play his part, but he is reaching the reluctant point, career-wise, where he wants to make a buck. This, Shakespeare rarely allows him to do. The big dramatic hit this season is "The Te»- r LOOKING AT LIFE IT'S QUITE- A FEAT, I suppose, for a Pomeranian to, stampede a heard of elephants, but when the little doggie loses his life in the attempt, that'* a horse of another color. Ori the other hand, lots of.little human Pomeranians try to stampede human elephant* and they, too, lose their lives in the attempt, «o there isn't really anything terribly unusual about this story. This little fellow belonged to a pair of midgets who worked in a sideshow, but apparently he got tired of the confining existence of a respectable Pomeranian, So this day he broke loose from his accustomed quarters and walked right into Olympia Hall, where the elephants were performing. The elephants, whether indignant because of the dog's affront, or because they remembered the. old story of the mouse and the pachyderm, let out a terrific roar and stampeded all over the place, killing the Pomeranian end injuring several people. They were finally brought undtr control by their Swedish trainer—but the dog wag .dead. A LOT OF HUMANS are a bit like the little canine. They belong in small and limited quarters, but .all r.t a -sudden they get the urge to cio something BIG. They want to be just as big as the elephants. So they take their last dime and their last ounce of intelligence and go into some kind of business which, like the elephants, tramples them to death both as humans and as tycoons. In Paris the other day, a newspaperman discussed the matter of lasting .fame with W. Somerset Maugham. The reporter asked Maugham whether he believed fice will decide about calling special elections when and if it decides as to the special session." ANOTHER "loyaltist" and prospective candidate for governor also took a slap at Shivers, without calling any names. Agriculture'Commissioner John C. White blasted the state's cross-filling law as "a blessing for Republicans and a curse for Democrats." "When a man cannot reconcile his personal beliefs with those of his party, then he should sever his connections with that party," White declared. "But under no circumstances should he use his conflicting opinions as as excuse to betray his party. "And that is the most damning charge that can be made against some of our public officials during the year 1952," he said. WHITE'S ATTACKS made it apparent that he would make cross-filing an issue if he and Shivers should become opponents ' in this year's race for governor. He is the only state official who refused Republican cross-filing in the 1952 elections. Governor Shivers, on. the other hand, allowed his name to be placed on the GOP ballot and helped carry Texas for Eisenhower and the Republicans. WEST TEXAS farmers and ranchers face increasing costs for drouth emergency hay. Applications for transportation aid have, been halted despite $400,000 more in federal funds marked for the program. Agriculture Commissioner White said the program in the future will, cover half of the freight costs up to a maximum of $10 per ton. On oast shipments the program absorbed half the total cost and the\tailroads the remainder. The railroads stopped their reduced rates January 1. FREIGHT COST payments have averaged $12.23 per ton, according to agriculture officials. But they say that stockmen now are ordering from such states. a s Nevada and Idaho thereby increasing the costs to about $35 per ton. ;' White estimated that aid-allotments already made will exhaust the''stateif ederal fund, if the allocations are used. In addition, stockmen . who already have allotments but have not placed orders for hay will be subject to the new payment policy. . TEXAS FACES another serious problem in the overcrowded conditions in state hospitals. "It is evident that with the expected increase in population overcrowding will remain a problem for years to come," the Board for State Hospitals and Special Schools reported to the governor. Although the $35 million seven-year building program has been going for three years, the board pointed out, it is not keeping- pace with demands for bed space in the various hospitals. ' .. ACCORDING TO the board, a survey of some of the institutions showed 20,850 patients, occupying space suitable for 13,200. '•'.'" -.-;•;. , . Recommendations to the Legislature to subsidize care of the aged In private nursing, homes is planned. Also,' as soon as money is available; a system of outpatient control to mental and tuberculosis hospitals w.ili be started, the board stated. AN ORGANIZATION of Texas cities has started an early campaign to get the attention of legislators before the regulajr ifssion. \ A program to obtain additional revenue from sources other than property taxes has been laid out by the League of Texas Municipalities. Cities are "entitled to a far share of the revenue from any increase in gasoline taxes" .or any tax levied for road purposes, the league emphasized. League members .also plan, to press for abolition, of the ad valorem tax on motor vehicles. They would substitute an annual registration fee, increased by 'one-third, with the increase being paid to the city in which the vehicle owner lives. In view of the telephone rate problem, the league will call for creation of a state public utility rate "aid service" to be financed by cities asking for help in rate fixing cases. A COMMISSION set up oy the Legislature has urged all state .colleges to require at least one course In American; history.;. :• Only one U.S. college in. five requires study" of this subject before, graduation, the Texas Historical Survey Commission pointed out. ,• . .. .. . In a resolution the-commission cited a. survey which showed the typical college freshman as unable • to specifically identify . Abraham Lincoln, . Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson or Theodore Roosevelt. ... "Hundreds of those interrogated thought that Walt Whitman was either a missionary in the Far East or an orchestra leader on the Atlantic, seaboard,' 1 the resolution added. AN ACT OF the last Legislature is paying off with greater efficiency in.state government. • State agencies were authorized to increase salaries if they could economize elsewhere. So far, .pay raises have been given to 278 employees, and 28 jobs have been abolished. '. WHETHER A strip tease act was reason to cancel a night club's beer license was considered by the Texas Liquor. Control Board. State law provides that "lewd or vulgar acts" may be a reason for such action. Other charges of liquor law violations against the club located near Austin were also. considered, by .

Sometimes even Henry Fonda alone frightens ME. The two best-acted plays in town are the holdover "Picnic," and the grim, explosive "End as a Man," with it- impressive coterie of Actors' Studio performers. If. you want to fall deeply, hopelessly in love, head for the Barrymore theater in West 47th, where.Miss Deborah Kerr, the "compleat" woman, is performing spectacularly, tenderly 'and skillfully in a so-so play, "Tea and Sympathy." BEING SHARPLY HONEST (I even have admitted that Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn, neither of whom is my favorite, are fine in the movie "Roman Holiday"; I must say that "Sabrina Fair," an entertaining play, gets good performances from Joseph Cotten, who to me usually seems wooden, and Margaret S'uilavan, with whom I fell out of love last season because I thought her work in "The Deep Blue Sea" was much too cute arid breathless for a woman in her 40s. • You can't get seats for Mary Martin and Charles Boyer in "Kind Sir," which may be just as well; here are two A-l actors incredibly cast in an extremely dowdy play. "The Seven Year Itch" is another holdover from last season, and I am distressed to hear from friends htat Tom Ewell appears to be playing his part rather broadly now — which, I should guess, would ruin the whole thing. There always is Vanessa Brown, however, and Joan Donovan," the skinless frankfurter girl. Carmen Mathews is quietly effective and Walter Slezak gaudily so in "My Three Angels" and Josephine Hull, let it be reported, has converted me into a Hull fan with her job in "The Solid Gold Cadillac." Only Fred Allen's offstage commentary marred that one for me. Finally, the biggest news of all: "South Pacific" U no longer running. This HAS been a startling season, hasn't U?

"THE COUNTESS DOROTHY di Frasso, 66, friend of the late gang leader Bugsby Slegcl and international hostess for film stars/died aboard a train to Los Angeles from Las Vegas. 1 ' So read a recent newspaper item. The countess, an American and daughter of a multi-millionaire, passed away from a heart attack in a. tiny roomette on the tram. In her suitcase was $250,000 worth of jewelry. The roomette wa* not very much larger than the coffin in which she was buried. But in her home, a mansion of many rooms, she had entertained the movie'greats. And her nalatlni Villa Madama in Rome had been the scene of many «. resplendent festivity in the 20s and 30s. Frankly, I had never heard of Countess di Frasso. And just as frankly, I have never read much of Maugham. Have YOU? . Each of us, I suppose, is leading his life to the best of his talents, capacities and inclinations.

So why not live the good life now and leave the rest to posterity? DATELINE: HOLLYWOOD By Aline Mosby BURTON HOLMES, king of the travel lecturers, plans to return to Europe "for one last look" a.t the a^e of 84 this year, but, he sighed, "I know I won't like it because Americans have ruined travel." Since 1893 Holmes' popular colored slidf* and motion pictures of the pretty side of foreign lands have played in lecture halls in citieg and haml«ti, and by now he's visited every country "except » few islands in the South Pacific." Ten years ago he quit country-hopping,, and illness forced him to turn over his Itctures to two assistants in 1950. But this summer the whlte-halrtd veteran of guide books and baggage will mak« "my last trip." He wants to see what's happened to Europe, and particularly his favorite city, Parif. "I'm. going, but I know I'll be disappointed," h> explained gently. "When I traveled, somebody with a cfmiti;^ w»s unusual! Now everybody is snapping h*rt and there. Tourists, tourists.

"Not the same." : Holmes, of a wealthy Chicago family, quit school at 16 to become a traveler, with a capital T. In those days to travel meant you were rich and »p«c- ial. and Holmes, with his dapper cane and elegant goatee, was a rarity as he bounded about the globe. "I traveled without passports, why, then you didn't need any!" he exclaimed. His two favorite sights are the Pyrmids of Egypt and the Parthenon in Greece. The best food he's found was in Santiago, Chile. He loves Parl* and thinks a person who can afford just one trip would be happiest there. Yet Holmes picks as his favorite excursion an early trip to Japan. In fact, his old-fashioned frame home, once movie Idol Francis X. Brushman's hilltop mansion over-looking the lights of Hollywood, is filled to the eaves with souvenirs of his trips to the Orient, "My most popular lecturers were on Paris, Mexico, Russia and the Panama Canal," he said. "Then'I'd use that money to travel to places I >eally/liked—Siam and Japan. But now they aren't the same, either. "I visited Japan when only a few persons were Today's Bible Verse GO YE therefore, and teach af[ nations, baptizing them in the name of th« Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Chost, Matthew 28:19 permitted to the interior.

His few non-Oriental possessions include his own tablf from the Cafe de la Paix in Paris and a gondola chair from Venice. ! "In Venice I stayed at the best hotel for $3 a day; Including meala!" he cried. "Now all thos? tourists pay so much money I have to, too. Yes. the world changes, but for the better? "Of course," he added after a pause, "there were many more poor people thtn in those countries. But they had their own customs and charm. Now everybody wears dirty coats and trousers.

A friend of 'mine — Gifford Thayer of Louisville, Ky. — told me recently that these four rules have helped him double his income in the last four years. Why not see what they'll do for you? DISSATISFACTION WITH your place in life is often the first step to new success. Recently I read the success story of J. D.

Zel- lerbach grew tired of being taken for the president of other companies with the same name. He decided to make his own firm so well known that there could be no mistake.

Covered With" Mud — Highway Traffic Signs Too Low, Too Close By HARMAN W. NICHOLS • WASHINGTON, Jan. 19 —UP- Ever notice on a sloppy day how the highway signs are all muddied so that a man can't tell where he's going or how fast he can travel? Well, the highway research board in Minnesota is doing something about it. This information came from Joe Fitzpatrick of St. Paul, a member of the board, who was in Washington to attend a meeting of highway officials. ' The St. Paul man said that his board has been conducting a series of experiments. "We evaluated the 'splash' and 'spray' areas of our highways," he said in an interview. "We discovered that perhaps the renson for the dirty signs was two-fold. Most highways signs are too low. and also too close to the road." But the Minnesota highway people discovered the remedy. "The common practice is to have the signs four feet high and eight feet out from the edge, of the pavement," Fitzpatrick said. "This has been considered necessary to keep the signs nearer the 'hot spot' of the headlight beams. But in that position they are an easy prey for a splash of mud from passing cars arid trucks." So all the Minnesota experts did was try making the signs two feet higher and two feet farther out from the road. "We tried it out o" a stretch of slab on highway 61 south of St. Paul." he said. "It seemed to work pretty fine. It saved a lot of money for sign cleaning because with the signs two feet farther out. they didn't catch s 0 much mud and Looking Backward From The Sun Files FIVE YEARvS AGO TODAY'S HEADLINES: Jester and Shivers Inaugurated; Postal Receipts Point to 10 Per Cent Growth For Baytown In 1948.

The Tri-Cities million dollar fourth war loan drive opened with issuing stations decorated in appropriate posters, .signs and label card identifications for the issuing agents. the rains kept them clean. The reduction in headlight intensity, because the signs are farther from the 'hot spot' was more than made up for .by selecting more efficient reflecting materials." Another advantage, the expert said, was that with the signs out a couplg of more feet, it is easier to plow, mow and blade highway shoulders. The section of highway on which the tests were made had an average dailv tfa,ffic of 5,545 cars and the traffic was equally divided between inbound and outbound lanes.

Omar Bradley Being Urged To Run For Senate By DREW PEAROJf WASHINGTON — Gen. Omar Bradley, former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and one of the great military men of modern times, has been approached by California admirers to run for the U. S. : Senate, as a Democrat. His reactions to the Senate approach are extremely - interesting. In the first place, Bradley is worried about money- -which is understandable, since he has lived on a meagre military salary all his life, and if he goes back on the federal payroll as a senator he would forfeit his retired Army pension. But more important. Uncle Omar is worried about the principle of militaryl men mixing in politics. He regards this principle as most important. The trend started by MacArthur and Eisenhower is dangerous and should not be continued, he told California friends, for the military profession and politics don't mix. A general, for instance, must be trained to Insist upon military needs apart from any political considerations. The politician, on the other hand, must be willing to compromise. As long a.s military men don't have political ambitions, Bradley explained, they will perform their jobs fearlessly and without compromise. But once a political career lurks in the mind of a general, his military actions, are bound to be influenced by politics. Therefore, concluded Bradley, military men must stay out of the political arena. If, so happens that Uncle Omar gave the same advice to his close friend, Ike Eisenhower, -hack in 1948, and this was one reason Ike refused to run for President at that time. Bradley is intrigued at the idea of ber.ig a senator, however feels that he might make some contribution. B'it the negative factors outweigh the positive, at least for the moment. Note 1—Adm. Thomas Hart, R Republican military man, was appointed to the U. S. Senate after the war and served with honor and distinction. He filled tho un- nxpircd term of Connecticut's Son. Francis Malonoy and did not run for re-el»ction. Note 2—Bradley was born In Missouri as a Democrat, but has never been identified with politics one way or another, though he was appointed by Truman to be veterans administrator and later to the joint chiefs of staff. In each case he did an excellent job. IKE MODIFIES RED STAND— President Eisenhower hftd a frank chat on loyalty probes with a non- ycssing Democratic congressman the other day in which Ike conceded that some people may have misunderstood his recent" statement that disloyal Americans be deprived of citizenship. Ike told 1 Congressman Harley Staggers of West Virginia that he referred (in his state of the union message' to those who committed treasonable acts to undermine the government. Ho did not moan former Communists who had been duped into joining the Communist party, but later renounced 1 Communism. "I do not have the power, as President, to give citizenship to anyone, but I do have the right to restore citizenship to a felon who has paid the penalty for his crime," Eisenhower said. "If a convicted felon can come back ano be a free man in a free .world, then certainly those who espoused Communism, but later repudiated it, should not be stigmatized by their fellow citizens for the rest of their lives. That's not the American way." "I'm glad to hear you clear that up, Mr. President".said the West Virginia Democrat, "because I was a little confused myself by what you said in the state of the union message." Staggers then read, to the President an editorial in the Wall Street Journal, stating in effect that the newspaper hoped Eisenhower didn't mean what its editors thought he implied 1 . Ike repeated his statement quoted above, then added: "I also did not mean to implv any partisan- shin in what I saitf." "Listen, Mr. President," replied Staggers, "this question is big-ger than the Congress, the administration, or any one man. It's the most important problem that the nation' facc s todav and it will take our best brains to solve it. .It is far more important than the job the 'Hoover commission is doing to reorganize the government. "If the current investigations of disloyalty by various committors of Congress, competing for publicity, arc allowed to continue, in two or three years there will be so much confusion in the public mind 1 that political opportunists may be trying to outlaw the Democratic or the Republican party as un-American." "l" think you're right," replied the President, adding that he was going to give serious attention to a bill Staggers has introduced, providing for a thorough probe of S"K versive influences by a 12-man commission of outstanding citizen'. selected by the President, the v'-p president and the speaker of th« House. NAVY CONFESSES—Adm. Jin Holloway, the Navy's personnel chief, is in the Pentagon do"house for sending a written statement to the House Armed Services committee without clearing it. Trouble was that he gave away Annapolis secrets. The congressmen had requcstc-cl Holloway's views on an Air For;o academy, and the admiral wrot-.; a statement in favor of it. Eu: buried deep in the statement was a confession'that. the Navy h:-cV boon using high-pressure tactic-' on Annapolis midshiprnon to ker;i them from joining its chief riva! —thp Air Force. When Deputy Secretary of Defense Kyes saw this paragraph .he ordered it struck out. He wns told, however, that it was too late, the statement had already been sent to Capitol Kill. Kyes hit the coiling, ordered that the paragraph be skipped ovrr when the statement was read into the record. He hoped that congress and newspapermen would thereby overlook it. Meanwhile, Holloway was called on the carpet by his follow admirals. "What's wrong with the story?" asked Holloway- "After all, it's true. We work over the midshipmen to ki?ep them from signing up in the Air Force, We don't want them to join the Air Force. Wo teach them some things we don't want them to use against us later." The truth, indicated his fellow admirals, doesn't always pay. WILLIE —by Leonard Sansome DONT VOL) UNDERSTAND M£. WILLIE?
