Eisenhower has sent to Congress proposed labor legislation that he seems to think "would contribute greatly to public interests and the basic rights of individual working men and women." He has 20 suggestions. They include such things as accounting of union funds, election of officers, fines for union officials for accepting bribery from employers, requiring regular meetings, making their constitutions public, and so forth. He does have one or two recommendations against certain kinds of boycotts. Me, however, docs not go into the real cause of labor unions taking advantage of the public—the Clayton Amendment to the Sherman Anti-Trust Law that exempts labor unions from acts that violate the Anti-Trust Law. The Clayton Amendment completely repudiates the ideologies of the American way of life as set forth in the Declaration of Independence that all men are endowed by the Creator with certain inalienable rights. It gives union men special advantages over oth- ther men. It is thus unAmericun. And the means used by labor unions to gain higher wages for members is to take away from others their inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It denies the individual worker the right to sell his services on a competitive free unhampered market basis. And the whole idea of the American way of life is that all men are equal before the law as they are before God: that we get our rights from the Creator, not from labiir unions or the government. The laws we now have substitute the labor unions and th2 government lor man's natural God-given rights. It is just as irrational to believe that \vc can protect public int.erv.st by granting unlimited monopolies to organized labor a.? it is to believe that we can "protect public interest'' by murder; that we can make stealing "protect public interest"; that we can make an advantage to some "protect public interest' 1 ; that we can correct the. uncorreciab'e; that \vo can make logal monopolies harmonixe with competition; that the unimprov- able can be improved by law; thct vicious acts can be made virtuous by law; that wrong can be made good by man-made law; that hoid- ups can be made virtuous; that the unrespectablc can be made respectable by law; that unequal things can be made equal by law. The harm that labor unions do, is that they take away from an individual his right to make an individual bargain, lo use his own conscience, to develop his own faculties. He becomes a robot. Control Ills Will Alexander Hamilton said: "A power over man's subsistence amounts to power over his will." Labor unions get control over man's will by preventing him from working on terms not satisfactory to the union. Labor unions, like the Communist government, have power over man's will because they have a monopoly, because they have a power over his subsistence since they want to have a monopoly over who can have jobs. They want control over both workers and employers. On the other hand, under the American system of free enterprise, with 4 million employers in the United States alone, the employer cannot have power columns. The tax is called IN-isequently, the law of supply and' over man's subsistence. Compelt- A.ny study of morals or ethics begins and ends in the area of ftieans. Obviously, whatever it is that people do, their ultimate objectives must be good. That is to say, the ultimate aim, the final result, from whatever course of ac- lion is adopted must, in the mind Of the actor, appear desirable. Certainly, any person may make ftn error in judgment. He may embark upon a course of a c t i o n which will be harmful and undesirable in its final result. But if he recognized that fact in advance, doubtless he would find some Other goal for himself. Thus, it is safe to say that all people desire ultimate good. It is inconceivable that they do not. Our concern, then, is not with what people want, but with the means they select to accomplish their wants. And here is where the problem is reduced to its morel framework. Let us suppose that the aim of a particular group of persons, for example, is to provide a school so that their children may receive, a competent education. II would bp difficult to find anyone w h o would oppose this as a desirable end in view. Clearly, education is a desirable good. Clearly, the establishment of a school is a fine and constructive undertaking. There Is nothing wrong with the ultimate desire. The problem arises not with the end, but with the means adopted to provide the end. Let us suppose that this group of persons sit down and among themselves exchange this counsel : We want a school for o u r children. This want is exclusively our concern. Therefore, whatever kind of school we have, it will be up to us to provide it. We must pay for it ourselves. We m u s t hire the kind of teacher or teachers we would like to guide o u r young people. It is our problem and we will solve it among ourselves as best we can. If such counsel were exchanged and ultimately adopted as a going policy then the means adopted with respect to the end in view, would be entirely moral and ethical. Such a school when provided would be a constructive institution. It could scarcely help but be. Let us suppose, on the contrary, that the same group of people got together and exchanged viewpoints along this line: We want a school, all right, but the cost of such a school is so great that we don't want to pay for it ourselves. Therefore, what we really wdnt is something for nothing. Clearly, we are going to have lo be crafty here, for we well know there is no such thing as something for nothing. How, then, do we get our school? Obviously, what we must do ig to scheme in such a way that others, who won't use our school, can be tricked into paying for it. This may be the same as banditry, but after all, a school is a good thing, and therefore it doesn't matter how it is provided. Never mind the means. The end we have in mind justifies any means we adopt. Now, it isn't practical, nor feasible for us to go out with guns and rob from those who do not iwant or won't use the school. Of [course, that's what we want to ; have happen, but we don't want to get our hands in it ourselves. We must retain our position in the community. We mustn't be branded as thieves or highwaymen. Therefore, we have a simple ex• pedient, crafty as it is effective. j We will ask the government to ! do the stealing for us. The govern- i ment is well-equipped lo undertake | such a procedure. No government is ever concerned with means; ends are all that motivate politicians. Thus, we will take action j among ourselves, empowering the government lo rob and steal wherever it will so that the necessary j funds can be provided for our 'school. i ! Of course, this means that we j ourselves will be set upon, too. j But we will submit to the g o v•ernment: robbery, for \ve know that ; by making the robbery virtually i universal, our contribution will he 'small. Whereas, it we do not em- I ploy this universal thief to do our i bidding, we will end up having to | pay all the costs ourselves. Clearly, robbery is the better way from the standpoint of our own finances. A school provided under such a I policy, cannot possibly be a con- jstructive school. It is simply an j end, provided by means of plun- i cler which ig immoral. It may be a palace. It may be able to pay enormous salaries to teachers. It may appear to be a very constructive place. But it would be an immoral institution, founded on the practice of universal theft. It would be rotten at the core, however good and pure it was made to appear on the outside. This ig why morals and ethics always appear as a study of the means to be employed. Immoral means can never produce, moral results.

' The GOP chiefs have frankly i told the President "concessions ; i will have to be made" on this is-; sue. Actually, they had already start-1 ed the ball rolling oa that. Senate Floor Leader Everett Dirkscn, III., had put General Elwood Qucsada, director of the Federal Aviation Agnecy, to work on what amounts to a considerably: expanded Administration program.) Two jolting factors were behind this hurried backstage stratagem : i As senate poll which disclosed i the Democrats' airport aid plan! ($575.0001000 for five years as I against the President's $200,000,000: for four years) not only is certain to be passed, but a number of Re.-; publicans will vote for it under: strong pressure from their home ! communities and states. ; Definite information the Dem-' or'rats carefully selected this )eg-| islation for an early showdown! with the President on the spending; issue, and arc counting on hia ve-: toing it as he did last year. If he; does that, they believe they can! override him, but in either event 1 a veto would give them a "lot of campaign ammunition for 1060."j That was the blunt warning given Dirksen by Senator Morris Cot-' ton, N.H., ranking Republican on ' the Avation Subcommittee considering- this measure. j Cotton strongly urged Dirk.«f>n to advise the President to "lay off of veto talk," and to prevail on General Qucsada to draft, an expanded airport aid program.

SECRET BOMBSHELL — Senator Cotton startled it with the information that the. Democrats have .'zott.cn hold of a Federal Avia- tinn Agency survey estimating "national aiijXiit needs'' at $1,299,- 6or>.ooo for the next four years. "They are going- to spring this report by Quesada's agency on the floor of tho Senate,' 1 warned Cotton. "That ipn't going to help us one bit, particularly with our own members. We are going to have to move fast, or we're going to take a bad licking on an issue thnt has powerful appeal in hundreds of communities throughout the country." Senator Andrew Srhoepplc (R., Knns.i stressed that, the President's bill is "sound and reasonable." "I'm not saying it. isn't." replied Cotton. "My point is that it is politically untenable. No one, regardless of who he is, can convince this Congress and tho country that our Hirport needs are not widespread and urgent and that something has to be done about them right now. Neither this Congress nor the country will stand for 'withdrawing 1 federal aid for that, as the president suggested in his budget message. "And I'll tell you another Important thing I've found out," continued Cotton. "The Democrats have decided to make this legislation their first big challenge' of the Administration's ;mti-spending policy. Not only do they have the votes to pass their bill, but they <il.«o have a good chance to override a veto unless we '.sweeten up' our program. Otherwise, a number of our people will be forced to side with the Democrats." This blunt advice was heartily supported by Senator Dirksen and Senator Styles Bridges iR., N.H.), head of the Policy Committee. Roth assured Cotton they would act promptly and vigorously. "I've already put 'Pete' Quesada to work along the lines you suggest," s»id Dirksen. "I'm .sure he'll produce good results." For use in assailing the President's airport aid program, the Democrats have compiled a detailed comparison on the basis of Hie Federal Aviation Agency's survey.

The other night I had a booth alone next to one with two inflexible follows in it. They were being adamant about their sons. Ono said, by golly, no matter what, his son was going to be a lawyer and no nonsense about it. The other one said: "I told mine off, too. He wants to be a dancer with a view to becoming a dance director some clay, I chilled him off, I can tell you.'" Well, gents, let mo put you ahead: the slim, muscular, determined and hardworking fellow who came in and joined me in a cup of coffee was a dancer - director, a choreographer if you will, and he is not only known from here to Tim- bukiu for same but the First National City Bank takes a warmhearted view of the kind of annual loot this young fellow pours in for deposit to his account. His name is Michael Kidd, a native New Yorker, who majored in chemical engineering and paid his way through college by being a night - time copy-boy on a New York newspaper. I think his fame would equal both of yours put together, and so would his earnings, and if you want to get fresh about it any time I think Kkld could whip the both of you without half-trying. Among the more recent examples of his skill and talents would be Cole Porter's vivid "Can-Can," "Guys and Dolls," including the film version, "Li'l Abncr," a bang-up movie called "Seven Brides For Seven Brothers," a Danny Kaye movie and, at the moment, on intense preoccupation with a musical show in rehearsal called "Destry Rides Again." This one, based on a famed movie of the same name, has Kidd loaded with problems since he is both choreographer and director of the entire show. "The kkls who have danced your shows," I told him, "tell me that they work uncommonly hard for you but that they have no ! complaints." i "It's true I do work out some I strenuous routines," he said, "but I the public, not the kids, seems to 1 I think I am killing them with exertion. It's an eyetriek, an illusion. We try lo make it look headlong, swift, unceasing and difficult but attractive. Stop-watch it some time. They are not on too long at any one time and often enough two or four will dance off and another two or four will danee on. It looks terribly fast and wearing on the kids, but it isn't. For 'Destry, obviously, is a Western. The movk;, like 'Stago Coach' or 'High Noon,' was and is a classic, a legend, a tradition. The stage show must do the same, yet not be too straight a Western and at no time a satire. Try to do that. We have to use the Western techniques and formulas, yet seem not to bo using them.

Yet, the 'feel' of a Western technique must be kept. Try that, too, as a short cut to suicide or madness. Same goes for tho score. It can't all be horse-lope temt>o or wagon-train rhythm. Yet 'feel' Western. Our problems are like the sands: myriad. But it's working out fine." "There will be the moment of high gunfighting between hero and villain, of course," I said. "Do you plan the classic 'slow walk' toward each other or the sudden eruption of gunplay?" "Neither," he said. "No room for the first, not enough space on a stage, and no motivation for Ihe second. I want a saloon fight. But in a Western saloon as it was, not as it is in movies or TV. I don't think the old saloons of the West were infested with .singularly beautiful girls in brief, spangled skirts. Some, had to have been plain nnd dressed plainly.

JORDAN, M.D. For several years the American Heart Association has been spearheading the drive against heart and blood vessel disease. That fine voluntary organization has supported much research and has served to clarify and publicize what has already been accomplished and what remains to be done. One of the most significant recent publications from Ihe association is a pamphlet, "Facts and Figures," about cardiovascular diseases in the United Slates. For those who are interested, copies of the handbook may be obtained from local heart associations or from the American Heart Association, 44 East 23rd St., New York 1, N.Y. Over the past 50 years diseases of the heart and blood vessels have grown more serious as a cause of illness and death. In 1905, for example, diseases of the heart and circulatory system were responsible for about 2-1 out of 100 of all deaths in the United States. Today they account for over 51 out of 100. This looks serious and indeed It is. But it must be considered in part as the result of people living longer. The infectious and contagious diseases no longer take such a serious toll of the young, and more and more of us are living on into the later years of life when the heart and blood vessel diseases are most likely to attack. When this factor is taken into consideration, find the death rate is adjusted for the aging of the population, there has been an actual drop in deaths from these diseases over th* past 35 years. The fine booklet 'presents information on a number of questions which are commonly asked. For example, "Which of the cardiovascular diseases are most important as causes of death?" The answer is that hardening of the arteries and high blood pressure arc accountable for more than 90 per cent of all deaths from cardiovascular diseases. Strokes and heart attacks (coronary disease) are classified under these headings. Another question commonly asked is, "At what ages are deaths most likely to occur from cardiovascular diseases?" The largest percentage come in the older ago groups, but they can occur at any age. In this connection it is encouraging to learn that the death rate from rheumatic fever nnd rheumatic heart disease, which is most common leaving Ihe doors swinging.

He'll be a mystery guest on "What's My Line?" and either^ Bennet Cerf or Arlene Frances will giggla and guess him. He'lj be the social arbiter, and his book, "Etiquette In Outer Space," will be a must for tourists to the moon. It will explain the proper thing to do when a steak floats off one's plate at a formal dinner, and whether or not ladles should remove their helmets while dancing. As for travel on the moon, he will be the last — and only — word. His authoritative book, "The Moon On a Budget," will be in every piece of rocket luggage.
