>ASE4— THE BAYTOWN SUN, WEDNESDAY. JANUARY 20, 1954 Inside Washington-Striking Change Noted n Ik es de Toward Congress Special to The Baytown Sun ' WASHINGTON — One of the most striking phe- -••inomena in Washington these days is the sudden " shift in President Eisenhower's attitude toward, and ' relations with,. Capitol Hill. Sometime during the recess between the first and - 'second sessions of the S3rd Congress, the President - obviously decided that he would have to exert strong personal" leadership in order to get his program through Congress. That was the reason for the recent briefing sessions with key GOP legislators and the subsequent • conference with Democrats at the White House. In blunt terms, Mr. Eisenhower was doing no more than trying to sell Congress a bill of goods. There is gnori reason for his precedent-shattering performance. Unless he can hold a. sufficient num- SUN SLANTS MORE NATIONAL PUBLICITY ONE OF THE most complete <if a little on the technical .side) articles ever written, about the Baytown-La Porte tunnel appeared in the December issue of The Military Engineer, a magazine with national circulation. The article was written by J. O. Bickel of the engineering firm of Parsons. Brinckerhoff, Hall and Macdonald. A copy of the article is on file in the office of the Baytown Chamber of Commerce. We suggest you have a look at it sometime if you want the whole tunnel construction story in one capsule. THE LATEST PICTURE W. W. BRAWN, who is on the Robert E. Lee staff and who is doing graduate work at the University of Houston, is working on some photographic research in connection with the tunnel. He's tracing the construction, step by step, by studies of a group of progress pictures. When the professor gets through, he'll probably have a good grade in his course as well as something for the , archives. A PLACE TO 'LOUNGE' THEY DIDN'T take a vote on it. but if there is any - virtue in silent consent, women's lounges in all of ...Baytown's school buildings are due for some renovation if the3''re found not up to snuff. School trustees the other night by informal motion of their heads up and down decided that some of the lounges weren't what they should be, and although they did not blame the principals any more than they blamed the superintendent or them- . selves, they did agree that they would give more ' than due consideration to any principal's suggestion that money be spent to give women teachers better lounges with more privacy. A situation at Anson Jones was noticed by Mrs. Edna Gray,: and that started the discussion. A-WusKaa teacher's lounge had been, set aside in . a room at Anson Jones., Later because of no other place to put it, a couch for ailing children was placed in the room'. Then the school secretary's desk was placed in the lounge. And then the secrg- tary's files. Mrs. Gray's-report, indicated the lounge is about as private as the lobby of a Baytown bank on pay day. We look for some lounge improvements in the days ahead. • 'NO PARKING' — PROBLEM THE SCHOOLS have one other unique problem de- LOOKING AT LIFE "WHAT IS THE BEST age at which to get, mar T tied?" asks a Hollywood reader. "Out here we see so many marriages at ALL ages go on the rocks, that I am afraid to take a chance. I am 24 and my fiance is 29. He says that is the ideal age. What do YOU think?" , • ' . .. . Well, I am certainly no authority on marriage. I leave that to the ladies whose authoritative analyses matrimonial relationships and problems appear in other columns. But since I arn. married myself and. have been ; for almost a third of a century, and since' mast of my friends are married, I CAN give at least some of my observations, IN THE FIRST PLACE. I don't know whether my reader's age which she gives is her physical or her mental age. A person can be 24 with the mind of a ten-year- old child. Or she can be 65 and have all the mental vigor and all the capacity for love of a 24-year-old.' Age has 'nothing to 'do with love or with matrimony. It is all a matter of being willing to take on the responsibilities of married life. • I looked up somn of the matrimonial records. Marriage ages range all the way from 34 to 90. The age difference between bride and groom is all the way from nothing to -10 years. Divorces have been granted to people of all ages and all age differences. They are apt to happen to men and women who have been married five years or 50. So you see, it is extremely difficult to establish any norms for marriage. Love is something like. a ; virus. It is liable to hit you at any time. But, unlike her of backers in Republican ranks and win at least a measure of support from Democrats, the who!t administration program faces a dismal fate —likely a pigeon-hole. Last session, the President studiously avoided any criticism of Congress when it flouted his wishes. It will be interesting to see whether he continues to follow that course or carries his case to the people when the votes go against him. Many in Washington are betting he will follow the second course. ABC's OP ATOMIC SUB — The launching of the atom-powered submarine "USS Nautilus" Thursday is hailed in the Navy as the most revolutionary development since the Wright brothers took off at Kitty Hawk. A "few tradition-bound admirals still insist that the atomic engine is "just another steam plant" but younger Navy men say this is because the oldsters won't look at facts like those: 1—The main limit on the amount of conventional power that can be built into a .vessel is the amount of fuel it can carry. Since an atomic engine uses no fuel—virtually none—the lid is off,, 2—If other requirements can be met, an atomic engine can double its power without increasing its small fuel consumption. To put it another way, a chain reaction can create a temperature of 2,000 de- grees'just as easily as it can create 1,000 degrees. 3—The engine uses no oxygen, and if a vessel is 'properly built for underwater travel—blunt-nosed, like a porpoise—it can go faster on less power than it could on the surface. As the fish already know, friction beneath the surface is less. The "Nautilus" itself is a "model T," but 50 per '• cent faster than any other sub.' More amazing to engineers is the fact that it will-be able without strain to maintain its top speed for two or three .months as a time—an endurance unthinkable with any other kind of power. . .•••"' • !REVENOOERS"—If you are courteous, friendly, helpful, understanding and co-operative, you should have.no great trouble landing a job as a revenue collector, for the United States government. ' : The Treasury department and the Internal Rev-, enue Bureau are starting a drive to instill these .virtues in all tax collectors and. other personnel .who handle your tax money and deal with the tax.. paying public. . •;. However, you would.have to be a gentleman at. all times. This is the word of Mrs. Ivy Baker Priest "•' of the United States.

You take Anson Jones and Horace Mann. There are two schools with absolutely no provision for parking, except on the public streets that partially surround the campuses. . . There are 50 or 75 teachers. There is the maintenance staff. There is the cafeteria staff. There is the space set aside for bus parking. There is the space set aside for deliveries to the schools and to the cafeteria. "^ . Then there is the space that must be set aside for patrons when they call for or deliver their children. At the moment there is quite a bit of construction going on at Horace Mann. These workers—most of them—have automobiles. Where are 'they going to park? ' ... . Maybe 3'ou think it isn't a problem. And here is a fine point of law or policy, whichever you want to • call it. . Would a school system have the right to provide property for sole use of patrons and workers for parking? If a' 1 #.chool already has the space, it can be used for parkHns, but could John .Taxpayer's dough be hoarded afts .spent by a school board for land that would be purchased_to provide parking space? You know, when moat ,pf our school law was written, there weren't many "automobiles, and parking wasn't too much of a problem'.''' ". We started to suggest to the school board that it had not mentioned one of the bigger problems incident to parking. , ' "' What about student cars? ; If the trend continues, it won't, be but a few years until all junior high students will HAVE to have cars. I understand now that a high school student feels completely at a loss without a personal automobile. I hear too that few college students can do justice to their'studies if they do not have motor transportation they can call their own. 'This trend is certain to dip into the lower grades. Some of my friends have suggested that I go in with them'in organizing a private kindergarten with a mean old profit motive in the back of our minds. I have decided I simply won't go into it. unless they place the kindergarten out in .the- edge of town so the youngsters who attend will have plenty of room to park their cars. I'm sure there will be a kindergarten model on display ind for sale in the days ahead. There is a moral to this story. , Ain't you. glad you ain't no school trustee in this modern day and age? By Erjch Brandeis ATOMIC FOOL the virus, REAL love is incurable. It becomes more and more of a chronic condition, while the love virus may be something that lasts only a very short time and can quickly be "cured" by a few unkind . words or actions, IN THE HOME of Old Irsael in New York two couples were married recently. Both brides were 73, one groom was 78, the other 82. I predict that both of these marriages will ,b« happy marriages. . , Present at the weddings were 13 children by previous marriages, 20 grandchildren, and four great- grandchildren. ,:'' • "I am looking forward to a brand-new liffl," said Mrs. Katie Goldstein, one of the brides. "Is not good to be lonesome," said Mrs. Tillie Lc- vine, the other bride. THERE IS ONLY ONE thing that may mar the marriages. • • ^ Both brides were busy—just before the ceremony —with moving their belongings/ from the "girls' dormitory" to the rooms they will occupy with their new husbands. "No matter how old he Is, .a man's-room can always use a woman's touch," said Mrs, Goldstein. Far be it from me to give advice to a 73-year-old bride. • - . ' • • But, from my own experience, I modestly suggest to ALL brides—no matter whether they be 17 or 73—not to put too much of the "woman's 'touch" into their new domicile. ' . . • .

By :Alme Mosby RADIO'S OLDEST STAR, Minetta Ellen, has played the same role for 24 years but now. at 79, she decided she'd like to switch to another job. • Mrs. Ellen, a great-grandmother, says she's tiring of portraying Mother Barbour on the popular NBC program, "One Man's Family." five days a week. "I would like to try some other characterization —it would seem more creative," explained the elderly thespian as she bustled about her kitchen mixing, no less, a batch of dry martinis. "I also want to travel to Japan and buy a microscope so I can look at all those little things. I never want to quit working." By now she has virtually become the character she originated in 1930, she continued. "The cast and I see each other socially and they always call me mother Barbour," she said. "People think we are the Barbours. I think it's bad for the show that they annonuce the Bar'oours are portrayed by actors." ; Mrs. Ellen took up acting in her 50's at the University of California in Berkeley after she divorced i her husband and her daughter married. Later one ; of her ox-classmates, Barton Yarborough, asked her if she'd portray the mother in a family series that was signed for eight weeks on NBC. ' . "I was' so thrilled—I'd never been a professional actress before," she saiu. ; The program, predicted to'fail because it was too realistic, floundered for a year before it caught on. It's still running strong, and is the second oldest ^ network show on the air,("Amos N' Andy" is first). , Only two members of the original cast have departed. "Claudia" moved to New York and Yarborough who played '•Clifford," died. ; "How I loved that boy." said Mrs. Ellen. "Hn ,1 eame to me with his joys and sorrows, poor kid." She thinks the show has lasted "because the ', things that happen in the script seem so real." The homey atmosphere enables the scripts to relate incidents that on other shows would be censored "Oh, we've had the birth of a baby with mo'ai.s ', and all," said Mrs. Ellen briskly. "Once Clifford -: even got caught in a sporting house ; •'Yes I love-.the job. When I started acting I Xoday 's Bible Verse AND THOU srialt love the Lord thy God with all'thy heart, and with all thy sou!, and with alf thy mmd, and with all thy • strength: this is the first commandment. Mark 12:30 didn't have 25 cents. Now I've gained my independence and that's what I wanted." A SIZZLING FEUD among Dick Powell, Charles Laughton and Henry Fonda broke into the open, with Powell accusing the others of being "ridiculous." This latest set-to centers around a play, "The Calne Mutiny Court Martial," and there has been more mutiny behind the footlights than in front. The all-male tiff rivals the recent Joan Crawford- Mercedes McCambridge match and proves that not just the ladies get cross at each other in show business. . The feud features Fonda, the star of the Herman 'Wouk play, and Powell, who was director until he suddenly hurried back to Hollywood' and was replaced by Laughton, also the co-producer. Co-Producer Paul Gregory announced Powell would not be credited as director of "The Caine Mutiny Court Martial'' when it opens on Broadway Jan. 20 after a road tour. Gregory said Laughton "is entirely responsible" for the direction, because Powell was "removed" from the job. But Powell fumed he wasn't fired—he quit. •'Gregory asked me to direct the play," Powell explained at RKO where's he's acting in "Susan Slept Here." ' "I got into a slight squabble with Henry. He was disappointed with a couple of sequences. He threatened to quit unless it was done the way he wanted. "Fonda is like that, moody. He did that on another play, 'Point of No Return.' Rather than disrupt the production, I left, five days before their national tour opened last fall. I returned to RKO. I assume Fonda did the scenes the way he wanted td. After all, he's the star of the play." Powell said he was satisfied with his directing job because "the play was a tremendous hit on the road." Later during the run, Co-Producer Laughton became the troupe's director. "He probably made changes,"—admitted Powell. "But nonetheless my contract says I get directional credit at all times. I've consulted my attorneys and may take action. They think the group may be trying to get out of paying me my percentage of the gross. .'.'.';.. ''Or another reason may be this i» the first Gregory production's, hit that Laughton didn't direct." He doesn't see why there'«hould be a fuss over directing, anyway, .' "The writing was so good and the actors so competent—who needs a direetsr?" he shrugged. "My uncle on the farm could h»vt directed it." By CIJEM&NT D--JONES''' UP'Statf Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 20 (ID— An unwelcome but certainly necessary .-topic at any film production conference in Hollywood these days is a condition -that's causing more costly delays and juggling of shooting schedules than the most temperamental stars who ever lived. It's smog. Screen director Roy Rowland warned today that if it gets much worse in the years to come, Los Angeles might lose Us No. 1 industry. •In other words, the way Rowland sees it, the movie industry may get up early some -smoggy dawn, tie up a toothbrush and a few things in a bundle, shinny down the drain-pipe and hop an eastbound freight for a sunnier clime. "After all," Rowland said-, "what the moving picture industry came out here in the first 'place was for mainly sunshine.'Another lure and consideration was the fact that such a variety of .exteriors from the seashore to tho mountains, were bunched up in one area. 'But what good is a seashore if the smog is so thick you can't get a picture of the water if you are standing knee-deep in it?"

"Remarkable thing,' 1 mused; Klingenstein, "no matter how hard or easy the course I played on—and despite some very difficult putting greens — I always scored between 77 and 81 a round." "That's sensational," enthused his friend "I wish I could score like that!" "You could with consummate ease," the miU llonaire broker assurer! him as he began clipping coupons. All you have to do Is develop as good imagination as i have." " : Rowland, who recently completed directing "Witness To Murder." a movie background in Los Angtt- les, found that, as usual, he had to do considerable juggling of his shooting plans in order to avoid shooting his exteriors in photographically tragic smog. Smog is fast cutting down the possible exterior shooting days and clouds any over-all calculations as to the length of time the shooting of a film-will require, declared the director. This unccrtaintly of smog-free weather conditions jockeys up pic- ture production costs considerably.'and consequently •makes it more difficult for studios and producers and business managers to estimate film budgets. Under some circumstances a week of bad smog might run up a picture's costs by 25 per cent. • Another result is that it has the movie studios sending their location companies farther and farther away to escape the smog overcast "Jockeying up production costs .is not popular with anybody right now," said Rowland in one of the prize understatements of, the new year to date.

Republican whose record is vulnerable. Members of. the Senate press gallery, who.have a way of smelling out their senatorial onions, "have been.even rated him the 96th senator. He is: John Bricker of Ohio, who has opposed : the President on the St. Lawrence seaway; who has drummed up a nation-wide drivn to hamstring the President's treaty power with the so-called Bricker amendment; and who is spearheading the confirmation of a McCarthy man, Robert E. Lee, to the Federal Communications Commission —an . appointment which some White House advisers . would just as soon have vetoed. Yet if friends of President Eisenhower took a careful look at Senator Bricker's record, the nation would wonder how he has the nerve to fight on, certain issues. . On the St. Lawrence waterway, for instance, the . senator from Ohio was picked for service on the - key Senate Interstate Commerce committee in 1948, a committee which has. much to do with passing or blocking various transportation projects, including the St. Lawrence. RAILROAD RETAINS FIRM — At about this time, the Pennsylvania Railroad, which opposes the seaway, dropped the law firm of Henderson, Burr and Randall in Columbus, a very fine old firm in the senator's home town, and retained the Bricker law firm, paying it $25,000 in 1948- About the same time, Senator Bricker voted to pigeonhole the St. Lawrence project in his committee. Senator Taft took a stand just the opposite. So did the farm organizations of Ohio, tho Ohio steel industry and the platform of the Republican party. In the years that followed the Pennsylvania Railroad continued to pay tho Bricker law firm" ?i03 r 000 or a total of $128,000. And Senator Bricker continued to oppose the St. Lawrence waterway. Furthermore, he admits that during this period, his law firm paid his a total of $69,000. Every Republican President, or candidate for President, from Herbert Hoover on, and including Tom Dewcy on whose ticltct Bricker once ran as vfoe-prcsidp" 1 - tial candio"ato, has favored the St. Lawrence. Yet Bricker, whose state would greatly benefit from the seaway, has consistently voted the other way. BRICKER . AMENDMENT—Now lot's look at the senator's record and his supporters on the Bricker .amendment. This amendment is opposed by the Republican President, his attorney general'and his secretary of state, on the ground that Jt would hamper the President's treaty-making power and put U.S. foreign relations back to the divided.days of 1776. It happens that Eisenhower is more skilled 1 , in his knowledge oC foreign affairs than most Prpflulorts and far more so than he is on domestic policies, yet some of his so-called supporters are clamoriiit," to hamstring his authority. Inside fact is that the Bricker amendment wns sold to Bricker by his old .friend 1 , Frank E. Hoi- man of Seattle. Holman is a past president of the American Bar Assn., a distinction which he parades at every conceivable opportunity in connection with the propaganda campaign for the amendment. Holman has likewise teamed up or permitted the teaming up of some of the worst isolationist, anti-religious, semi-fascist organi- zations in - the United 1 State* . in support of his Bricker amendment. In fact, it has been Gerald LV K. Smith's Christian Nationalist Cru- 'sade and Merwin'K. Hart's National Economic Council, among others, which have hammered incessantly, at the American public to "write your senator" in support of the amendment. Most of these people, incidentally, have only the vaguest idee, of what the Bricker amendment is'all about And it's highly doubtful that the American Bar Assn., upon whose good name Bricker trades, would care to have itself associated with these extremist elements. And it's highly doubtful -also that some of the senators, such as Lyndon Johnson of Texas, realize what- forces have' inspired their heavy mail. , '. , • .Johnson, incidentally, , though supposed to be the Democratic leader of the Senate and one who constantly harps on teamwork, deliberately ignored- his own team, the Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary committee, by coming out for the Bricker amendment. Democratic Judiciary members, meanwhile, had written . a contrary report, opposing it. HOLMAN'S BACKGROUND — Meanwhile, Bricker's friend, Frank Holman, not only has done nothing to discourage extremist support, but has definitely snuggled up to them. On Jan. 30, 1953, he spoke before the Women's Patriotic Conference on National Defense • in Washington, after Congresswoman Katharine St. George of New .York refused to speak on the same platform with such extremist speakers as Robert H. Williams, California racist propagandist and editor of Williams Intelligence Summary, Mrs. Grace L- H. 'Brousseau of Greenwich, Conn.,-who wrote the foreword in Joseph's Ka'mp's book, "We Must Abolish the- Unted States," acted as program chairman. •• . ;; •- i. ' . Williams is the man who pub«; lished a picture of Eisenhower with Marshal Zhukov when they were in Berlin together, with the inflamma-story charge that: "The Marxist machine is pushing General Eisenhower as Its chosen candidate." ' Despite this, and desiipte the fact that newspapers widely publicized the refusal of ConscreESwoman St George and others to appear on the same platform, Frank Holman proceeded with his speech and urged the "women patriots" to exert all their influence to pass the Brciker amendment. . , • Later Holman listed among the groups supporting his amendment seven extremist organizations; and on May 9, 1953, he wired ,Merwin K, Hart, whom Justice Robert Jackson has described as "Well known for his pro-fascist leanings," urging support - for ' the Bricker amendment. Holman even signed the telegram ''Frank E. Holman, past president, American Bar Assn. This gives some insight into the manner in which certain extremist pressure groups, masquerading behind patriotism, have mobilized public opinion to hamper the treaty-making power of the President of the United States. Do You Know? Do you know that the Democratic party in Texas based its voting strength at the 1952 state conventions on the number of Votes cast for the Democratic candidate for governor in the preceding election?
