Newspaper Publihers Aai'o SATURDAY, JANUARY W, 1U47 The May Case Throughout the war, and for many years before Pearl Harbor, the name Mny was synonymous with activities in Congress relate*) to War Department programs and legislation. Countless measures brought into Congress wore known by the simple title, "The May Bill."; Congressman Andrew Jackson May of Prestonsburg, Kentucky, was chairman of the Military Affairs Committee of the House: of .Representatives. His influence was great, as naturally it would be since his committee was first to consider measures of major consequence to the Army. Brass hats were at Jus beck and call. They came to him for advice and assistant 1 , or seeking to influence him to favor or oppose proposals which they thought desirable or objectionable. May was in a position to render his nation and the armed forces a service suited to the demands of the times. Today, former Kentucky Congressman Andrew Jackson May stands accused of conspiracy to defraud the government in war contract deals. He has been brought before a federal; court. He has entered a plea of innocence and released under liond of $2,000 for trial March 19. He is accused ol' misuse of the power that* was his. Above all else under' our 'system of law, lie is innocent until proven guilty in court. However, the fact that a grand jury has found reason to indict him makes his position in the eyes of those who fought the war, whether in uniform, in dungarees, or in any effort related to the war, a most undesirable one. It is unfair to pro-judge n case and that will not hi.- dono here, but regardless of the outcome of the May case a great scandal has descended upon one of the most powerful committees in Congress. Occasions of this nature serve to create a universal attitude of distrust on tin, 1 part, of the offended toward all lawmakers. Thus, the seriousness of the affair comes into clearer focus. Heavy penalties arc provided for imposition on officials who let their positions of public trust hocome means of conducting dishonest, practices, but what recourse is available to the honest men, who, by-virtue of similarity of positions, are liable to ho tarred with the same wide brush of public opinion that swings heavily without too great, discrimination 1 ? Offenses by public officials increase in seriousness according to the importance of position. Should Mr. May bo convicted tlit penalty imposed upon .him will be light, whatever it may be, compared to the consequences of the affair upon his former committee and the Congress. He Knows Better Now Truth\ should not be spoken to strangers, says n n old Oriental proverb. William II. Hiinkell of New York city must he wondering wlu'thi-r this applies to him. Mr. Haskcll is, or WHS. an employe of a Wnll Street brokerage firm. When summoned on the jury investigating the football bribery cases, and asked if he had any prejudices, ho .'-aid, "I'm in thf gambling business myself." His firm did not think this funny, ami discharged him. Also the New York Stock Kxclinnpe struck him off its list of registered representatives. This seems rather severe for what was presumably an attempt nt humor. Could it he that his joke struck )OM closely home? What Californians say about super- quality of their state must be true. Los Angeles produced an accident the other clay which piled up 0(5 cars at one intersection. It is a big day for other states when (hey tangle up six. Gen. Marshall is said to be President Truman's ideal of a great American. So any we all of us. Do Yoii Remember?

Around The Clock Dear Editor : lu regard to the item about Bob Lyiicli of Jan. 17, 1947. There was a slight error or a grjivc mistake as to the child's name bein»' Dick fekridulis. It was not the child's name. The child was Alton B. Cable, Jr., foraierly of New Preston, Conn., where be resided with his grandparents for a considerable time. His father is an overseas veteran with citations and was from New Preston. They were staying at the home of Charles Skridnlis* his brother-iu-law, on Pond Hill. Mrs. Skridulis is Mr. Cable's sister. And it was she who took the child to the hospital with Bob Lynch. I want to say that Bob Lynch did a wonderful job in getting the child to the hospital because the doctor on the case said two minutes more and the child would have been gone. So I'm taking this opportunity of thanking Mr. Lynch. The child is recovering from a bad case of tetanus. I think Mr. Lynch, of the Independent Cab Co. deserves a lot of credit for what he did and also Dr. Grinvalsky of St. Mary's hospital should be praised to the utmost for his fight to save the-child's life and staying on the case. Yours truly, ALTON CABLE Grandfather of the child. New Preston, Conn. Mrs. Loretta Childress, who will speak on the subject of psychology Monday night at the Community Parent-Teacher association meeting, is the sister of Mrs. Joseph DeLuca, 14 Surrey drive.

According to the woman it's not the first time the act has been committed . . . policemen state they will severely reprimand youths caught cutting lines. If you've noticed anyone around town witli red faces, tears in their eyes and gasping for breath, you'll know they've been eating those red-hot pickled onions Mrs. Mary Rose is furnishing.
