"The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Truman Finds That Three's A Crowd; CIO's Murray OK's Truman's Labor Proposals; Democrats Bar Good Men From Committees i—"Unlike many other resignations,. the iviil reason I'or Secretary of Static Byrnes'* resignation was just what the official announcement said—his .lioalth.

"OIi, yof." iidmltted -l-ho President, "Admiral Leahy knew." U was then decided to Issue an Immediate press release in order to "scoop" tho newsman, and tho I'n-sidr.-nt called In Pi-ess Sccrc- t:n-y Chiii'lle rio.M.4. Whereupon it developed that he had also told f.'h;i.;-llc Ross about the Impending Hyrnes resignation.

And \vhun rriniv than two people know .-:. thinK In Washington, It isn't n Note —Mrs. Byrnes was a little I The CIO leader not only endorsed legislation to prevent jur- Isdictional tie-ups and secondary boycotts, but other Truman proposals. "The message was fair and public-spirited," the CIO chief told Senator Murray. "Labor can have ro quarrel with It." Some years ago, -ho set up a committee within the CIO which had been highly- successful . in dealing with Juriadlctlonal union problems, CIO's Murray told Montana's Murray. New York hotel, (International) lions committee, after only one year's experience while Senators Claude Pepper of Florida and Theodore Green of Rhode Island, far more experienced, have served on the committee for eight years. Mow BUbo Stepped Anldc It was Senator Theodore Bilbo himself, working through kindly Senator Clyde Hoey of North Carolina, who arranged the 60-day vacation moratorium on his fight for a Senate seat. Convinced that he did not have "As <a result," he said, "we have | a chance to win his battle during little or no trouble, with jurisdictional disputes within the CIO today," He admitted that there i.i 'ttill the opening days of Congress, Bilbo went to Senator Hoey. Telling the silver-haired tarhoel that he knew himself to be licked, Bilbo between tho CIO an'd the AFL, cm ,°, u ° n: .trir-i continued, his voice choked with which might be remedied by Con- gretsional action, 'But I am flat broke, and ir they kick me out now, I won't even have railroad fare back to "On several occasions in the Misslsuippi. mllTod bocfius<! she pot the newg| posti i nave recommended to Bill, "Now I have looked up tho law, i.l' her husband's retirement from | Crcen tAFL president) that n an d If I will step aside for two or newspapermen who phoned her. j j 0 | n t CIO-AFL commitee be'-«et up three months I can draw my pay ... had known that her husband later in tho about week, hut she didn't know thr rush announcement.

It was found -that Bilbo's interpretation was correct. Barkley and Hoey then went to G, O. P. Leader Taft who called Senators Wallace White, Jr., of Maine and Eugene Millikin of Colorado to his office. Taft and White were for immediate acceptance but Millikin balked, insisting that Bilbo be barred "now and for all time." The two Democrats pointed out that, even with a revision of the clcture rules, something: which itself might precipitate a filibuster, it might take ae long as 30 days to oust "the man." So, after about 40 minutes of discussion, Colorado's Millikin agreed that if Dr. George W. Culver, Capitol physician, would give it as his professional opinion -that Bilbo was genuinely in need of an operation, he, Millikin, would "go along." That was how the deal was arranged.

Green promised to ".think It over," the CIO leader said, but nothing further was heard from him, Vun'ti Now Limousine The new Senate is getting obvious pleasure out of watching Senator Arthur Vandenberg of .Michigan In his new job as president pro tern oJ the Senate, Part of this is because of Vandenbcrg's unconcealed happiness in ithe job, part because many never did relish Senator Kenneth McKellar of Tennessee in the president's chair. New Hampshire's Senator Charles Tobey, however, could .not resist putting Vandenberg on the spot. Talking with a group of G. O. P. colleagues in the Senate restaurant, Tobey mentioned the long, sleek limousine, with liveried chauffeur, which goes to Vandenberg along with his new job. ".Vow, we of the Republican party <irc pledged to the maintenance and extension of American democracy," said Tobey. looking at V'andonborg, "I wonder if the president of the Senate would not agree that it is up to us to demonstrate our fundamental belief in that democracy wherever possible. "As a gesture of democracy, therefore," continued Tobey, "let mo propose to the president of tho Senate that he practice real democracy in the use of his new Hmouxlne, There arc 51 Republican sqn:itot-s, and 52 weeks in the year. Would It not be a true democratic gesture to assign the limousine to each senator for one week ot the year, with the president of the Senate himself to have Its use for two weeks?" Vnndenberg grinned. Somebody onme to his rescue by changing the subject, Dpmocrntlr Committee Haggling- Not much has been said about Democratic wire-pulling in assigning members to Senate committees, .but it 1ms been just as hot a subject behind closed doors as the assignment of Republicans. Fy adopting a rule that assignments fro on the basis of seniority In tho Senate, rather ; than length of membership on the committees themselves, the Democrats were j able to bar certain liberals of long j experience from certain key committees.

New Device Whips Record Scratch Waltham, Mass. <UP)— The days when the scratch of a phonograph needle seemed ns prominent as the rofordir.g itself may be on tho way out. Thanks to a new device invented hv Herman II. Scot;, president of the Technology Instruments Corp. of Waltlinm, both old and new phonograph records c.;nb e heard clearly at all times. Known technically as the "dynamic noise suppressor," the device automatically and instantaneously adapts the channel to conform with the roquircmeits of the musical range, thus obtaining a clear tone. In other words, tho invention operates like a rapid electronic "gate" to admit the music, eliminating nil bul an almost Inaudible amount of noise. In the bass musical register, tho suppressor reduces the heavy rumble and in the high range the reduction or scratch is marked. The average home radio would need one to four extra v.icuum tubes for the dynamic suppressor. One tube would su/flice for th<? smallest radios, w|i)le three or four plus a few other components are iccessary for more elaborate out- its. The device already has been earmarked for use by the Fisher Radio Co., of New York and the •Scott Radio Laboratories of Chicago. Sound and radio engineers, hearing the first demonstration wore so impressed that words failed them. • ,. . "It has to be' heard to be- 'leved," was the consensus.

The National Cranberry Association, located in Hnnson, Mass., has purchased a model 47 helicopter to be used in its drive for insect control, fertilizer distribution and frost prevention. In the cranberry regions of Massachusetts, New Jersey. Wisconsin, Oregon and Washington both sprays and dust will be used to combat the ever present insects. Fertilization, which in the past hns been a very perplexing prob- n^ due to the difliculty in spreading 1 concentrates over the bogs, shouid be made easy with the aid of the helicopter, M. L. Urann, president of the association, be- ieves. To add to the duties of the "man made bird" and make it n three- season worker, the helicopter will be pressed into service in the fall on cold nights to combat froat. The propeller blades revolving on a vertical axis are expected to create enough downwash to raise the temperature -sufficiently to avoid damaging frosts.
