It offers a welcome respite for millions, an opportunity to escape hot cities, relax on the beacli- es, soak up sunshine, enjoy mountain breezes, to swiin and play and roam. Eeno \vill welcome thousands for the rodeo and the highways in all directions will be jammed. Three days of it, a delightful prospect. Except for one difficult}---getting there and back alive. That's harder to do than you may think. A long holiday weekend brings out on the highways! thousands who would not bother to go away for a shorter time. The ordinary weekend's hazards thus are multiplied many times. With good weather this weekend could easily produce a record- breaking number of casualties. Safety isn't a matter of statistics. On the highways, especially, it isn't something that concerns some one else. It concerns you and your passengers, for whose safety you have taken responsibility. If you want to stay alive and whole and keep your family the same way; if you don't want to become or see a loved one become a bloody smear on a highway or spend the rest of your life a cripple; or if you don't want to carry all your days the torturing memory of having killed a carfnl of people, then drive carefully this weekend. AIR FORCE ACADEMY WASHINGTON--Republican and Democratic congressmen who attended the recent White House briefing on Far Eastern problems came away with a depressed feeling. The depression, they said, was not so" much because the situation was grave but because the administration didn't seem to know what to do about it.' The closed-door session gives significant insight into how Eisenhower and Dulles were thinking during their talks with Churchill. President Eisenhower started the briefing with a short pep talk in which he called for bi-partisan support. Then he introduced Undersecretary of State W. Bedell Smith, just back from the Geneva conference. Gloomily,. Smith reported that France is ready to accept an Indochina cease-fire at any price, and we will probably have to go along with it. Inasmuch as we dictated the armistice terms in Korea "on the ground that our boys were doing the fighting, the French are now insisting on fixing the terms in Indochina for the same reason. The United States, the undersecretary of state .told the senators, is prepared to draw a "fighting line" in Indochina, which would embrace Laos, Cambodia and part of Vietnam. And if the Reds cross that line, the United States would be willing to fight. Smith left the impression, however, that the Reds ·would demand occupation of all Vietnam--the wealthiest and most populated part of Indochina-and that the French would let them get away with it. Secretary Dulles spoke up during one part of the briefing to say that he "thought" India might join an anti-Communiit alliance if the Reds tried to invade Laos and Cambodia, because of India's cultural and religious ties with these two small states. But he quickly added that he had no positive evidence. Meanwhile. Undersecretary Smith reported that the Chinese Communists are already wooing Laos and Cambodia. He left the impression that, as soon as the military offensive is halted, the Reds would start a political offensive with honeyed words and "silver bullets" to win over the rest of Indochina. Knowland Crow-Examine* Only senator who fired any really hot questions at Smith and Dulles was Knowland of California, the Republican Senate leader. The Democrats asked few questions and there was no apparent desire to em- barass the administration. Sn. Knowland, however, questioned Smith rather sharply as to where the fina! "fighting line" will be drawn in Indochina. If we draw a fighting line now and proclaim that we will fight at that line, would we not draw another line later, Knowland asked and then retreat still farther to another line? Smith and Secretary Dulles never gave him a direct answe-. They talked around in circles. Undersecretary Smith admitted that we were getting next to nowhere with the Southeast Asia alliance. The key, he said, was India, and he indicated that England was taking her cue from India. The report was so gloomy that Secretary Dulles As the youngest and fastest growing branch of the services, the Air Force has had some rough times. The Air Force has a formidable esprit, but it could never quite call its personnel its own, while a separate air academy was lacking. Enabling legislation and appropriations for establishment of a separate academy finally received congressional blessing at this session of Congress. After a final inspection of three sites--in Illinois, Wisconsin and Colorado -- Air Secretary Talbot approved selection of a site near Colorado Springs, where a modern school along the. lines of the service academies at West Point and Annapolis will be built. For at least two years the Air Force will continue to draw on the Army and Navy academies for at least some of its new officers. Since 19-47 the Air Force has been taking 25 per cent of the graduating classes at both service schools. The first class of 300 aviation cadets will start its studies a year from now at a temporary location in Denver. Estimated cost of the Colorado Springs academy is $150,000,000. There has never been any doubt that when the air arm became a separate branch of the defense forces it would need its own academy. When West Point and Annapolis were started, the land on which the new air academy will be built was wilderness. It is still the "wide open spaces" to the eyes of easterners, but such a circumstance is certainly in keeping with the limitless air frontier in which the fledgling airmen will Ifve and work. We were hopeful, of course, that the site near Marysvi lie, Calif, would be selected, for the air academy but Colorado Springs possesses advantages that are greater than those of Marysville. For in- .atance the elevation of Colorado Springs is more than a mile. The savings in fuel consumed by jet planes in take-off because of flic high altitude was one of the factors in the selection of the Colorado resort town and military center for the academy.

Could be worse -- supposing it vrerc a Greater Hilt mvnah! felt compelled to give a little cheery talk and try to end the conference on an optimistic note. "The Mendes-France government more nearly expresses the will and spirit of the French people," Mr. Dulles beamed. He interpreted this as improving relations between the United States and France and holding out "more hope" for our policies. 'Hogwash' Senators, comparing notes afterward, recalled that Dulles had told the same group before the Geneva conference that the only reason he was going to Geneva was to save his "friend George Bidault" from losing his job as foreign minister and to prevent Mendes-France from the overthrow of the pro- American Laniel government. Dulles told the senators that the Geneva conference which lie once described as the hope of the world could not yet be judged a failure because it wasn't over yet. As the congressional group filed out, Rep. Vinson of Georgia snorted: "Hogwash! Pure hogwash!" He was so loud that the statesmen who had brewed the so-called "hogwash" couldn't help but overhear. He Judged Oppenheimer Admiral Strauss could well have been more careful about picking the judges to pass on Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer in the most important test of a top scientist in the history of the nation. It now develops that Strauss picked as one of the three judges a man whose company had once exchanged valuable patents with Hitler's Germany and Mussolini's Italy before Pearl Harbor; who ulso urged commercial links with Soviet Russia; .ind who, when head of another company, tried to send airplanes to South America in violation of the laws of the United States. He is Tom Morgan, former head of Sperry GJTO- scope, who voted that Dr. Oppenheimer, thojgh loyal, was a poor security risk and might leak information to potential enemies. ' Among the charges against Oppenheimer was that he once had Communist friends, though it was stated that he had given no information to Com' munists. Howeve-, the New York Times of Nov. 23, 1934, reports that Tom Morgan was a featured speaker at a dinner honoring Peter Bogdanov, head of the Russian Trading Corporation. Bogdanov was returning to Russia, and Mr, Morgan, with other New York business leaders, met at a big dinne · to say goodbye and pay him tribute. "Behind the speakers' table,!' said the Hew York Times,"... hung the red flag of Russia with its crossed hammer ane sickle." Morgan was then president of the Curtiss-\Vr_ghl Aviation Corp. He was chairman of the CurUss- Wright board when, a few months later, March 30 1933, Curtiss-Wright tried to ship four bombers to Bolivia, then engaged in the Chaco war--in violation of the U. S. neutrality act. As a result, Curtiss- Wright was criminally prosecuted and fined $260.000 with two of its subsidiary executives fined $11,000 each. Simultaneously, Mr. Morgan, now retired, was head of Sperry Gyroscope when it faced a criminal antitrust charge for exchanging patents with German, Italian and Japanese firms which the Senate munitions committee showed were for military purposes and certainly could have been of value to * potential enemy. The case was settled after Pear Harbor with a consent decree. In fairness to Sperry Gyroscope, it should be noted that it is now loaning over backward against any exchange of patent information with foreign countries. However, this was the judge, Thomas A. Morgan picked by Admiral Strauss Jo pass judgment on the scientist who developed the atom bomb, because he might pass information on to a potential enemy.

Recently at Lindy's lox empori- m, I had a cup of coffee with ,alph Slater who bills himself as The World's Foremost Hypnotist" Ie was as full of yarns as a mince ie is of raisins. Here's one of them . . . Some years ago, Slater did a pecial show in New York for a onvention of plumbing fixture manufacturers, and after the per- ormance one of the delegates came round to his dressing room. He introduced himself as Eddie Burett and said he had a problem. His trouble was that he was mockkneeo with a fear about a peech he was scheduled to make at he convention the next day. He ad never done any public speaking nd was certain he would fluff and luster and make a show of himself. Tie occasion was an important ne: The senior members of his irm would be out front, and he lad been tipped off that if he han- led himself well, he was in line to be elected to the board of directors. When Slater inquired how he could be of help, Eddie asked if he couldn't be hypnotized just before he meeting, made to memorize his ines and then .through post-hypnotic suggestions, directed to remain calm and speek forcefully. Ie was prepared to pay Slater well or his time and trouble. Next day, shortly before speechmaking time, Slater put the young executive in a trance and said, 'Eddie, I'm going to read your speech to you and you're going to remember every word. I'll sit down ront, and when you get up to speak ! shall snap my fingers. At this signal you will square your shoulders and deliver your talk with confidence and complete ease." Half an hour later, according to Slater, Eddie walked up 1 to the speakers' platform, wearing his confidence like a boutanniere and, as tha saying goes, knocked 'em dead . .. The following week the young man showed up at the hypnotist's apartment. He told him that, thanks to the speech, he had been appointed to the board of directors and was slated to iw'w an even more important addr^·· before the Mew York Board of Trade. He was again worried and wanted to know what Slater would charge him for another hypnotic treatment. The hypnotist told him that, in pod conscience, he couldn't take lis money, and then went on to ex- jlain that he was in no way responsible for Eddie's initial success. "All I did last week," he told him, * was put you in sort of a daze and :ry to get you to believe that you lad it in you to make a good speech. [ tried to put you in a complete trance, but it didn't work. Some jeople don't respond to hypnotism md you're one of them. When you spoke as wi?ll as you did at the convention, you were strictly on your own, and I had nothing to do with your success .. ." 'When Eddie walked out of my apartment," Slater told me, " he was grinning all over his face. His second speech was a bigger hit than the first. Today he's vice-president of his company and in great demand as a public speaker." "Nice story," I said, "and it was a lucky thing for Eddie he was dealing with an honest hypnotist. You could have taken him for plenty by pretending you were hypnotizing him." "You miss the point," said Slater. "When I put Eddie in a trance the first time, I hypnotized him as I've never hypnotized anybody before. His talk, if I may say so, was a triumph of post-hypnotic suggestion." "How come then," I said, "that Eddie didn't blow up in his second speech?" "Simple," said Slater. "He Ind the makings of a good speaker all along and all he needed was confidence. My little white lie about his not responding to hypnotism gave him that." "Suppose Eddie meets another hypnoUst and finds out he is susceptible," I said. "Won't he lose his self-confidence? "Couldn't happen in a million years," said Slater. "Eddie was » most difficult subject, and I doubt whether any practitioner would be able to put him under." "YOU put him under," I said. "Quite so," said Ralph Slater, "but you forget one thing. I am the world's foremost hypnotist." - * WASHINGTON, June 29.-- I thought, a long time ago, that I .was all through writing pieces about free food-freezers, television sets and royal pastel mink coats. These items, you who have long memories may remember, were among the favorite bribes for governmental small-fry in return for favors received. You may even recall the bureaucrat who'd worked out his own private cofle of morals: Any ham up to 8 pounds net, he'd receive as a gift; hams weighing more than that he considered a bribe. Well sir, it develops that the investigators only now are uncovering some of this small-time skulduggery, which results in multimillion-dollar profits for those who passed out the gifts. It all happened back in the free-and- ·easy days of 1949-50, when the Federal Housing Administration was issuing mortgage loan insurance for big apartment houses. In general the builder of one of these edifices would take a loan for a million or so more than he needed -- and then simply pocket the extra dough. All he needed to do this, apparently, was a federal appraiser with generous ideas. And that, said Deputy Administrator William F. McKenna of the housing and' home finance agency, explains some of those Christmas gifts. The red-haired McKenna, who was appointed two and a half months ago .to investigate the scandals within the FHA, charged that builders in many places regularly slipped costly trinkets to those who approved the loans. Here in Washington, said he, local builders one Christmas presented to FHA people a total of eight console television sets and 18 wristwatches. When this be came known at headquarters, the head of the local FHA office and his chief assistant were allowed to resign. The other members of the staff were ordered to return thek loot. McKenna said there wasn't a single member of the FHA office in Alaska who hadn't accepted gifts some four years ago. "In Philadelphia it was the genera! practice of the staff to receive gifts from builders," McKenna said. He said it wasn't the intrinsic worth of the itemii that mattered so much, but the fact that a man who acceped a $400 television set from a contractor was likely to approve a mortgage such as to give the rest of us taxpayers the heebies. In testimony before the "Senate banking committee headed by Sen Homer Capeheart (R., Ind.) McKenna produced the figures on 27 ·ederidc C. Fred C. Trump of Jamaica, N. Y., and William Tomasello. of address now unknown to the FHA. These gentlemen, according to HcKenna, paid $34,500 for a piece f land, which they rented to their building corporation for 560,600 a ·ear for the next 99 years. Should he apartment house they built there ever go into default, then he FHA has the privilege of paying them $1,515,000 for the land. McKenna said that was only the eginning. He alleged that the Messrs. Trump and Tomasello ob- .ained loans of 53,500,000 more than the apartments cost. Then, said McKenna, they collected rents rom their tenants of $1,700,000 before they made the first payment on their mortgage. They loaned $729,000 to affiliated corporations and they still have S3,- 000,000 in the bank, he added. Whether any of this was illegal s debatable. The law itself, apparently, was vague, while the en- lorcement thereof left a good deal ;o be desired. More later on this one; a whole ot more. Those senators are only getting a good start. * horrid examples, consisting of over-financed apartment projects in New York suburbs, in Virginia and in Texas. He said there were others. He listed the fabulous profits that were garnered and he named those who did the garner ing. Typical, said McKenna, was the case of the Beach Haven Apart ments of Brooklyn, N. Y., built by Gallup Poll By GEOEGE GALLUP Director, American Institute of Public Opinion 46 Million Adults Smoke Gigs, Averaging Pack For Day (Editor's Note: The Gallup Poll has conducted a survey to determine the number of cigaret smokers and their views rela- .tive to the possible effects pf smoking as a cause of lung cancer. Following is the first of a ·cries of two articles.) PRINCETON, N. J., June 29-Forty-five out of every 100 U. S. adults--or some 46,000,000--smoke cigarets and they average a pack a day, judging by results of a nation-wide survey of cigaret smoking conducted by the American Institute of Public Opinion. That adds up to slightly more than 1,000,000,000 cigarets consumed a day by adults. It does not include servicemen abroad or cig- aret smokers under 21. Well over half, or 57 per cent, of all male adults questioned in the survey are cigaret smokers, but only one woman in every three, or 32 per cent, smokes. Other highlights: Not only do more men than women smoke, but men smoke more cigarets than dp women. Cigaret smoking among younger people is more than twice as -great as among the elderly. More than half of all men and women aged 21 to* 29 years light up cigarets, whereas only a little more than one-fifth of the people over 60 years of age are smokers. Today's poll was completed just before the announcement of the American Cancer Society's study showing that there may be a connection between heavy cigaret smoking and the incidence of lung cancer and heart disease, particularly among men 50 years of age and older. Among men in this age grouping, today's poll finds 44 per cent are cigaret smokers. The views of smekers, as well as those of the general public, on the" possible connection between cigaret smoking.and lung cancer will "be reported in a Gallup Poll in Friday's Journal. A properly balanced cross-section of adult men and women throughout the country was first asked: "Do you happen to smoke cig- arets now?" Here are the results for the nation and by age and sex: Nan- CltiMt Cliuet Smoken Smokers National 45% 85% Men 5T 43 Women 82 68 81-29iye«rs S3 *7 30-39 years 53 47 40-49 yean 45 55 50-89 years 41 59 60 years £ over .. 33 17 Each cigaret smoker was asked how many he smokes a day. The average of all replies was one pack a day. Among those who smoked cig- arets, 40 per cent said they smoked less than a pack a day; 37 per cent said they smoked a pack a day, and about one out of every four, or 23 per cent, said they smoked more than a pack a day. ' Less than half of the cigaret smokers in the country confess that, at one time or another, they have tried to give up the habit. "Have you ever given up smoking for any length of time?"

By ELEANOR ROOSEVELT NEW YORK, June 29.--I want to tell you more about the day spent in Hartford, Conn., at the conference sponsored by the service bureau for all the Connecticut women's organizations. First of all, I sat in with a who were discussing community organizations and the development of leadership in the community. It seemed to me that this was done very well and that they covered most of the areas in which women's organiEations function in the community. The only thing they did talk about was information on international s u b j e c t s -- touches very closely the lives of all the people in a. com.nunity and is part of the activity of many women's organizations. This they were to cover in a second meeting, along with a discussion of tha United Nations. After lunch there was a plenary session at which all the different round-table groups made short reports. Then they separated again, some to visit the children's museum, others to rest or do some quiet studying. I went to the children's museum and was much interested. One room is devoted in summer to outdoor projects which youngsters can undertake. -I thought this would of great value to young mothers who, once school is over, sometimes find it difficult to keep their children usefully occupied. As one young mother wrote me, "it seems as though suddenly I have too many children!" It's quite difficult for a mother to make instructive suggestions for projects that children of different ages can undertake. But at this museum, the youngsters can find any number things just waiting for them to up. I vas shown some of the material that the museum sends cut to schools and churches and other* responsible organizations to be exhibited under glass. If you write and say you would like an exhibition on Japan or China, they will send you enough to give you a little idea of the life in those countries. They also send out exhibitions which are of such indestructible material that school children may handle them. This, of course, is great advantage. The rest of the museum had this usual exhibits that can be found a n y children's museum but I thought they were well mounted and that everything was shown with imagination. In the evening, Miss Katharine Lenroot, former chief of the U. Children's Bureau, spoke on the responsibility the community has for the atmosphere in which children grow. I thought her speech very interesting and helpful.--E. R. DAILY C R O S S W O R An Institute survey in December, 1949, found 66 per cent of non-cigaret smokers holding thei opinion that cigarets are harmful. ACROSS 1. Sphere 5. Head cook 9.
