By a strange quirk of circumstances, William Gellennan's Martin Dies (Now York: John .Day, $:)') has been published almost simultaneuosly with tho retirement of the Texas congressman i'roia the jiational scone. Washington rntuors have Mr. .Dies's reasons for retiring running till tlie way from income tax difficulties to tJie lure of oil riches. Mr. Gellerman, associate professor of education at Xortliwc-stern imiversity, writing 1 it-fort- Mr. Dies made known his intention to retire, sheds no light on these possibilities, but it is safe to cc'iu'lude that he is happy about Mr. Dies's eclipse. In preparation for his book. Mr. Gel- lerrruin read every speech made by Mr. Dies in Congress, speeches by his admittedly demagogic father before him. and all the hearings and reports of his committee. He concludes that Mr. Dies did not go into his six-year .Tiivesf igation with an open mind, but had "very definite ideas OTI subversive and tin-American activities and propaganda long before his committee came into existence.'' Mr, Gellerman begins by saying that Mr. Dies lias rendered great service to (lie cause of economic autocracy by'liq- uidating the agencies of democracy. There is "very little evidence" in this man's public career, he says, to indicate "that lie either understands or believes in American democracy.'' His conclusion is that the Dies hear- \vorc organ i/.ed to pi.'uvc certafm Julian Morris,- popular North Main street gas station proprietor, is wearing the latest tiling in headgear for the working man. The bonnet was designed by Julian himself, and it is a masterpiece, to say the least. A five-pound paper bag with diamond-shaped openings in the back nnd front ami on cither side and a feather stuck in a rim that was formed by folding back the open end was the way the hat was made. Very simple and plain, we say, but on Julian it looks goud. The other day, while serving a customer, the latter said in alarm: "Mis.tcr, do you know there is a wasp inside yo'ur hat;'" Julian smiled and replied: "Well, he got in, and when he's ready to leave he'll find his way Out." iSuro enough, after u .few minutes the wns]'i spread his wings and took off through one uf the openings, leaving every fine concerned in a .happy frame of mind.

Little Barbara Guelakis of Candee road is a patient at Waterbury hospital. in things llifit Dies (o prove. "He often," (.he author says, "rejected witnesses whnse testimony might have led to other conclusions than the ones which he had in mind at the outset.' 1 .In his exhaustive research, Mr. Gel- lorrnan was never able to find an instance where Mr. Hies made any effort to expose fascist organizations, which to the author are the "really tin-American fiirct-" in (his country. .Instead, he says, the committee has devoted its time to "insulting our ally, the Soviet Tnion." Tt is Mr. Gellerman's thesis that the Dies Commit lee not only has usurped the authority of Congress, the executive and the juidciary, refused witnesses the right of examination by their own counsel and accepted evidence that would be thrown out in any court in the land, but lias conducted "a witch hunt" that has "done much to create distrust among the Allies." Perhaps Mr. Gellerman attributes to the Dies Committee more power .than it actually wields in the circle off allied nations, but it cannot be denied that through the committee's efforts numerous individuals lost their jobs and reputations, "victims of a pressure group supported at public expense," Mr. Gellerman's book is worth reading because even with Mr. Dies retired and two members of his committee already defeated by the organised labor vote this summer, it could happen again in these United States that other "isms" could be cloaked under the yarb of "Aineri- M.

But in the French tradition that bred warriors and THE DIG SHOW Every four years, the Democrats, and the Republicans ' gather In «omc large city for the ostensible purpose of. selecting candidates Cor the Presidency nnd the. Vicc- presidcncy and to formulaic a "party platform." Before the date of the convention is -announced, the back-roomers have already written down the names of the standard-bearers, and 'the double- talkers afc already at work on tho platform. But every Convention ha« actually served several purposes, of which these are a few: 1—It brings hundreds of delegates thousands of miles from comfortable homes to perspire 1 in hotel rooms which they cannot rent. ' . 2—It increases the consumption of liquor in the convention city by 300 per cent, putting bathtubs to very unconventional use. 3—It fills nite clubs to overflowing with visiting firemen . and burning curiosities. 4 —It gives little men an.oppor- tunity to carry big signs and exchange midget ideas. The greatest problem at these conventions is not the selection of a candidate, but the selection of sleeping quarters. At the recent G.'O.P. conclave, one delegate asked another: "Did you get a. room":"" "Whal do I want with a room?" asked .the other. "I'm only going to be here three days!" A political convention attracts more hangers-on than the circus. A newspaper reporter, in Chicago to cover one of the conventions, asked his cab driver about a crowd of men he spotted congesting a busy corner. "Oh, them," said the cabbie, "they're durliks." "Durliks?" queried the reporter. "What's them?" "Durliks," said the driver.

So dull arc much-ballyhoocd political conventions, that ncwspa-i pormcn arc frequently at their' wits-end to dig up an interesting story to send back on the wires. The frantic efforts of radio commentators and feature writers to inject a note of suspense and excitement' into the dismal proceed- rigs of one such convention reminded some of us of a world scries ball game some years ago. It was one of the dullest contests on record. The crowd was apathetic. The occupants of the press box sat twiddling their thumbs. The late Graham McNamce, however, reporting Ihc gnme over the radio, was beside himself with excitement, shrieking the details into the microphone.
