Newspaper Publiben AJI'D TUESDAY, JANUARY 2». 1W7 Through To Texas Kobort H. Young is not through with diangini;- railroad habits. Some changes he has forced himself, titul some have IHJOM iniulo I'v other people when they saw that his ideas worked. • His war-cry. "A hoir can ride across the continent without changing but you can't," got under the skin of railroads and led to through passenger service from coast to coast. The Canadian Pacific had done this for years, but American roads thought it too difficult. Now the Pennsylvania Kailroad has opened non-change service from East to Texas. This should help to meet plane competition. . If they are not put to too many inconveniences, a lot of Americans reallv like to ride on trains. Crossing Deaths Elimination of grade crossings is a national need, fa the 18 months beginning Jan. 1. 1944, 4,1)00 persons lost their lives in crossing crashes with railroad trains. As many as .'•!() organizations, including several connected with/the automobile industry, have worked for -years to'reduce this toll. legislation Instates raay,.be the .only answer, Alvanley .Johnston, grand chief of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineer!*, urges such a solution of this American problem. The fact that full stops are required in most states before crossing road-level tracks is not enough. It is a law hard tn enforce, largely up to the individual motorist, and seldom observed. While waiting for elimination of grade crossings drivers can do their part by heeding present crossing warnings. This kind of accident -figure can be reduced. Nevertheless work should he pushed on getting rid of the network of road-level tracks. The Mature View It' labor monopolies should be broken up by forbidding industry-wide bargaining, business monopolies should receive the same treatment, said Prof. Frit-/ Maclilup of the University of Buffalo to an economic conference held by the United States Chamber of Commerce. Industries dominated by a few giant, corporations can cause great suffering lo society when they are strikebound. If their size were cut down, their labor troubles would not upset the entire country. "Break up the trusts" was an old political cry which had more sense than most. But the basic need is to treat botli labor and corporations fairly and alike. Both have been irresponsible, and legislation has been aimed at the current irresponsibility. Both need to realize that it's time to put away childish things, to take adult, responsible attitudes towards each other and towards society as a whole. Fighting without thinking does nobody good. What America needs in its labor situations as well as in some others is constructive thought without destructive conflicts.

Jack Schmnck is all set to get started with his 1947 campaign for funds for the Bed Cross, t Some residents are voicing opposition to the proposed Board of Finance bill without even reading the entire bill. Many of the natives only know that it would abolish the freemen's meeting, which they don't like, and therefore, take the attitude that the entire bill is wrong. With talk of the Finance Board bill taking the limelight, there has been little said during the past couple of weeks about the appointments to the police or fire departments. . . another meeting of the borough board is scheduled in a week . . . the question is still unanswered. When a report on supernumeraries was given last month it was said all had been contacted at least once . . . now. comes word from one "super" that he hasn't been contacted at all. Spectators who attend high school basketball games should bear in mii,id that the boys are just boys. . . . It may be excusable to be carried away by the excitement of the game, but at least one character at the Torrington-Naugy game was completely out of order with his loud bellowing* that berated anything and everything, from referee to cheer leaders. . . . Let's bear in mind that spectators, as well as participants, should be good sports. Fifty seats for the March of Dimes basketball benefit at the Y this Friday night have been reserved. Tickets for these seats will be sold at any amount above the regular price of 60 cents for rush seat tickets which the buyer cares to give. . . . Four of these reserve seat tickets have already been sold. Rudolph Hen- nisk bought the first pair for $10, and shortly afterwards, C. J. Waskowicz bought the second pair for $5. iff WALTER WINCHELL Coast-To-Coast THIS- IKON CUKTA1N IN AMERICA DurJiiK the early l!)30's the Me- Cormick Congressional Committee stacked a batch of sibling evidence about subversive.?-. Those revelations are still pertinent. But the committee's'-most potent (Ire- crackers wore sealed and pigeonholed.. .Thu evidence was sealed because it was too hot to handle at that time. It concerned wcll- 'heeled and'- prominent Americans who paid the. bijls.,.foiv..native fascists' and foreiffn "agents.' The factual dynamite 'also contained explosive info about well-known politicos who hnlped draw up the subversive blueprints. . .There have j boon m.iny promises that this evidence would be given the oncc- q.vcr by the spotlight. But the .-:c.ilod records still gather dust in the Government's archives. abracadabra caused its disappear- Happy Couple A ContfresKmaii once announced on the iloor of -the House that William Drexel, a German shipping exec, was one of the loading] Nazi-espionage agents in the U. S. j He followed it up with a long! strirg 'of facts about Drexel's; nefarious activities... .Before a' C'ongrcssion'-il committee in 193-1 this Drexel confessed that he supplied '$125,000 bail for German '. agents. He also admitted in court 1 that he owed his allegiance to Hitler...And then what happened? Absolutely zero, n..s far as we know. This reporter never again heard or anything about William Drexel. Thr files of the Stiitf Dep't arc packed with stunners about Gen, Franco. Every infamous fact about his odious career is a part of its secret records. It contains every treacherous move made by Franco during the war—when hi) was the top envind-runner for his Axis chums...But our diplomats nave not made the evidence public for fear it would arouse Americans into forcing the Stntc Dop't to call a h:ilt to its namby-pamby- 1 ing of the Spanish tyrant fvnd some of his buddies in the U.S.A. Some years :IR:O nnwspupcr.s spot' lighted an expose of official^- con| nccted with the Romanoff Caviar Co. of New York. It was revealed . that the firm supplied the wampum ! lor various Nazi agents. The ga- i also: pointed out thnt the | ofticials of the company were very chummy with some fogisla-tors. An j ir.quTry was promised. . .At this point in the colyum you can supply. your own finish to the paragraph. The trices was hushed up...The who, what, when, where and why behind the squelching of the probe is another one 1 of those whodunits. Thi" Mies Commit!**' mode. » hobby of thnfting headlines. They never muffed an opportunity to rush into the public prints wi 1 flimsy charges that wore never confirmed. But when Ihc committee did manage to snare vitil facts —they were buried...Its most important expose involved influential Americans who played ball with Nnxis. Several years ago various reporters and editorialists called upon Dic^ to bring this report out into the sunlight. But he nixod the idea. Apparently Dies was' frightened by the truth—because ' the records of this exposis found a gnave in a pigeon-hole. For obvious reasons the most important members of the Communist Parly remain a mystery. Despite all the probes and investigators, communist leaders have refused to divulge their names. . . Like all rats, communist-s operate most effectively in the darkness. Rcmemhor the shameful'Detroit riot? A short time .after this shocking event exploded across the front pages the authorities in Detroit announced that they had the names and. the facts about the rabble-rousers who. instigated the riot. The inciters were Klansmen. Bundists and other trouble merchants. Law and order officials piously vowed that 'they would be brought to tri'al:. .Then the iron curtain came down ant) the promises and the evidence were completely forgotten. Why the Hot-' inciters never faced a judge and jury remains a -mystery, Vaudeville miiBlclHjis hiivc never matched the hocus-pocus th'alt causes investigations to ," vanish. One week they are on the front pages and the next week they silently disappear. Frixample, some years ago a Washington Grand Jury revealed it was probing Ham- Fish's, alleged connection with' Nazi agents. .But after it attracted the usual quota . of headlines — presto—the investigation vanished • .. .The .public never learned what Iuis frequently the easiest way This reporter pointed out that lo kick the props from under the anti-democratic plotters is by making public the names of the suckers who supply them with coin. The exlreme reluctance of the leaders of those outfits to put those names in the spotlight proves our point ..Edward A. Rumley (one of the leaders of the Comm. for Constitutional Gqv't.) refused lo disclose the names of his outfit's financial backers to a Congressional committee about two years ago. As a result, ho was cited,for contempt. . .That was two yours ago—but the names of the money-mcn^are still wrapped in-an iron; asbestos. Troulile-moinfer Joseph P. Kamp was also indicted on contempt charges for playing dumb when a Congressional committee requested the names oh -fcjs sucker list... Several weeks ago Kamp was taken into court—but after a few days of legalistic hemming rfnd hawing a deadlocked jury caused' a mistrial. . .Kamp's money-men a secret.
