PAOK 3—NAUGATUCK MEW!) (CONN,). FRIDAY, FED. 7, 1D41 DREW PEARSON ON e WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Navy Brass Hats Sell Cars In Shanghai; Enlisted Men Jailed For Selling Cigarettes; Knutson Rebuffed By Joint Budget Committee 'Washington—While the Nnvy is bunding- out. prison t.ciTiis t.u eiilistod mon who sell cigarettes on tlio Shanghai Mack market, and while the enlisted men's barracks, in. Slmn&'liiii—an nbiituloned wiirnlioiisf—tiro, almost unfit for human habitation, the high-rankiujLT admirals- continue to ,n-et away witli murder. An adrninil can sell bis car on the Shanghai market ;it an exorbitant price—$8,200—can ship it to Shanghai at (ioverninoiit expense on an LST boat, can use Government radio communications at priority rates to arrange for the deal—and nothing happens. But iT an enlisted man sells a carton of cigarettes in Shanghai—lie's out of luck. To illustrate, hero Is the almost unbelievable series of radiograms exchanged between Adm. C. M. Cnuke, Jr., Commander of U, S. Is'aavl Forces in the Western Pacific, and hie friends regarding the nale of an automobile, presumably hin. Admiral Cooke, now at sea. was not available for comment, but thi! radiograms tell their own story. Hero thoy are: "I'Voin Admiral Cooke to J.t. ('<miin:imler Cornell, probably at .Suite B, Cathay Hotel, 'Car being transhipped from Okinawa on LST 3141 departing 5 October and probably due Shanghai 7 October. You are authorized to remain In Shanghai or to return here for further return to Shanghai probably i; October. " 'Your suggestion of putting binder on car for seven hundred dollars approved.'" Admirals, of course, believe in helping admirals. So, later, Rear Adm, Apollo Soucek, now Com- rnuncler of Fleet Air Wing 1, radioed Admiral Cooke regarding the shipment of the automobile from Okinawa: "Captain Connelly assumed per- Honal charge and udvmucl that shipment would be made LST 3141 ubou't r> October. I am not sure actual sailing date. First Information addressee requested notify Adrnlrul Cooke estlmutpd time of arrival of LST 11-11 in Shanghai." SH.liOO lor tin Auto Following this, Li, Com. Wallace Cornell was suppoufd to handle the Shanghai er.d of the motor deal but momentarily was without orders to ho in Shanghai. Therefore, he sent thi; following message from Tslngtao to Com.

Moody Company, one of Shanghai'* 1'irest auto-trading companies, anrt after contacting Meyer, Shaul sent the following message : back to Lt. Com. Cornell: "Eight thousand 200 dollars net bed! bid. Meyer requests instructions." But the $8,200 offer by Meyer wcis not sufficient, even though most automobile* In the United States sell for only a fraction of this price. So. Lt. Com. Cornell wired back to Lt. Com. Shaul, again at priority rates and again at Government expense: "Inform Meyer we will accept S700 net. We will pay customs. Advise Cornell USN Port Facility Tslngtao," Shaul, however, was not able to get the higher price of J8.700. Fur- themvore, the original offer of $8,200 also :'lzzled, for he radioed back to Lt. Com. Cornell In Tsingtao: "First deal fell through. Meyer working on another. Where la Joe. All of us worried. Shaul." And that is the story of how the admirals permit Government transport nnd Government radio facilities to be'used to sell automobiles on the Shanghai market—while en-j Il.-Ued men ar» jailed for selling) r«l frt rr^f ftu ' ' What's Doing In Naugatuck A calendar ot events foi today, tomorrow and every day Tonight Senior House League basketball games ut Y.

Kcononilsts Former War Production Board economist Bob Nathan was disturbed the other day to read an'at- tack upon his analysis of corporation profits released by AFL presi-j dent Kill Green. Nathan, therefore, Hod Margaret Scattergood, one o-f the AFL's top economists, to ask .her about it. ' "Who wroto that analysis of my report, Margaret?" he asked, "I wrote it," replied Miss Sent- tcrgood, "Well. I just want to ask you ono ciuc.stlon," Nathan said. "Did you read my report before you wrote It'"' 'No," replied the AFL economist Kinitson's Ik-buff Congressional leaders hushed It up, but one of the oldest traditions of Capitol history was broken when the Senate-House joint Budget Committee rejected babbling, tax- cutting" Congressman .Knutson of Minnesota as its Chairman and elected New York's John Taber n.ilcad, Always In the past the man chosen to head up joint committees that deal with budget and tax problem* has been the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee —In this case, Knuts^n, This is because the Ways and Means Is the Ilrai: and th« oldest Houce committee, as well as the creator of all other House committees. It initia- utc.M all tax legislation for both the House and Senate, However, when the joint Budifpt Committee was organized, chatterbox Knutson, Chairman of Ways and Means, was deliberately pas.snd over by his own Republican nol- leagues In favor of Taber. To -make the buff all the more humiliating. Knut.ion wa.s actually presiding at the time It happened. The Minnesotan expected to re- j main in the chair arter his per- j unctory nominAtion tor permanent chairman, but alert GOPRep. 2verett Dirksen of Detroit roue in the closed session and moved the lomlnution of Taber Instead. Ae if by a prearranged signal, Clarence Cannon of Missouri, the retiring Democratic Appropriations Chairman, was on his feet with a seconding speech. Other members responded with a resounding, unanimous vote of approval. For once the usually pompous Knutson was speechless. He turned ashen white but said nothing. Murahairs 100 Per Cont Backing Few men in history have ever assumed the post of Secretary of Stale with as much White House backing as General Marshall. President ^Truman simply can't get nvnr what a "wonderful man Marshall Is," brags about him to almost every White House oallcr. After Marshall was sworn in, Truman received a group of prominent women civic leaders, .and onq of his first remarks was what an "outstanding man the General is." Next morning, Truman received Democratic Senator Warren Mog- nuson and Congressman Henry "Scoop" Jackson, the lone Democrats from Washington state. | "Well," Truman said, "I've got: a mighty great man working for me now. General Marshall is one of the best men who ever lived. ,' "Why, do you know," continued j the President, "hi> h«:s an absolutely phenomenal memory. He can remember a meeting that he had with the President two years after It happened. He can even tell you the day and hour, exactly what was talked about, without any notes. I certainly am expecting big thrngs from 'him," Both legislators agreed that Mar- shull was an excellent choice. fCopyrlght, 3947, by The Bell Syndicate, Inc.) A GROUP OF YOUNGSTERS keep their eyes on a couple of British soldiers patrolling a street In Jerusalem, Palestine, during tha recent search for two British subjects who had been held as hostages by Jewish terrorists. As a preliminary to drastic military action to stamp out terrorism, the government ordered compulsory evacuation ot all British women and children from the strife-ridden Holy Land. (International) Your American Red Cross By Amy "Red" Grosser "WILL THE RED CROSS HOME NURSING COURSE TEACH ME ABOUT FOOD AND NUTRITION?" YOU ASK. Strangely enough, 'that is what happens in lesson two of this course and they really shine on this one. After a good explanation of why food is important to keep the human machine moving, working and playing every day, they go into detuil on 'the kind of foods to eat. What to eat and when to eat it. For instance, if you are responsible for selecting- food for a child, do you know which foods will help hi.Ti grow and develop strong muscles, straight bones, and sound tee-Lli? Do you know which foods will ho.lp protact him or you from illness? Do you find yourself feeling tired and lifeless? Well, maybe you just aren't getting enough energy- producing foo'ds. This course tells you how to choose them. Vitamins are a popular subject nowadays on the air nnd in your daily papers. Here is a good lesson on vitamins A, B, C, and Die rest of them, with the proper amounts of food needed to gel them all, and thus protect yourself from certain diseases known as deficiency diseases, and thus have better health. If you think you are overweight or underweight, here is the course that will set you right on the proper steps -to take in reaching your proper weight. Good oniing habits as we:i as good elimination habits and how to ar-.quii'c thorn are carefully discussed, everything working to the original aim of the course, to keep you and your family healthy. But careful as we arc, or try to be, disease and sickness manage to sneak into our homes. So during this second lesson also comes a discussion of ways, in which it {spreads, and thus a good instruc- i tion in keeping it confined. How | germs travel, carriers of diseases, land how the body defends itself ! against these germs, all this is cov- ! ered in your second class. Did you know that more than half of all the absences from work and school are 'caused by colds? Well they are. And since everyone of us has had one at one time or another, here is a good chance to find out the many things thai, help a cold get started, and when it does how to combat it before it. leads to anything more serious. The course is not a substitute for a "doctor. It doesn't claim ; to be. 1 In fact those taking the course leui'n the dangers involved in self- treatm'ont in certain cases, and they also learn that every fam- .ily should hnvn a family doctor to go to for advice and treatment, for no muttor how careful we arc, sickness will con-,c. Rumania's oil basins, located at •th>; foot of the Carpathian mountains, arc said to be among the most extensive in the world. Legal Notice S^RCTAT.

Manufacturing Company, of New Haven, .asking help in- getting the tariff on raw copper lowered. "Thc-re is today an imminent shortage in copper," Senator Mc- Maii'on s.aid, "due to the fact that a tariff of four cents a pound prevents our importing it. This tariff duty must be lowered if we are going to be able to get copper to keep our fabricating plants open. I am endeavoring to do everything possible to insure the maintenance of our supply of copper."
