-PAGE TWO THE TAMPA DAILY NEWS, I'ampn, T cAA* ED TORIAL "TONGUES IN TREES" , : Progress, very masterful, came the other day tphere Beailty was, and, with gallant gesture, tip-toed around, leavihg her peace all undisturbed. Mapping the route for the reconstruction of a highway in New York State, a survey party ran full tilt into a tree. Now, trees have been called many things by many poets, but in the lexicon of the tramping transit bearer their name is just Obstruction. This eighty-foot maple of lordly girth—thirteen feet around— already a sturdy sapling when, in the same state, Ethan Allen's "Green Mountain Boys" wrested the Fort of Ticonderoga from the British Bnrgoyne—was doomed to become so many feet of lumber. Then up spoke one McGregor, its owner. "Surveyor, spare that tree," or words to that effect, he cried and, doubtless cited a certain poet's well-known panegyric. (It was in the evening paper.) He won and new maps were drawn. To the so.journer in an arid land, nostalgic longing for,a tree is often overwhelming. The wastward traveler in America listens well to the voices of the winds in the tree tops as he hurried from the nearer east to the farther west. He must traverse great stretches where no grateful arboreal shade rises to rest his gaze from the broad horizon's shimmering desert heat before he reaches wooded Pacific slopes. To his lips, also, may rise that oft-repeated stanza singing a poet's feeling for a tree. (It is Junior's prized parlor piece.) , Before those lines took birth, here and there in the dry country, men and women who loved a tree, like Cicero's diligent husbandman who sowed "trees, of which he himself will never see the fruit," labored to plants saplings in newly settled communities. One recalls a pleasant town in New Mexico, Roswell, where this was done by early beauty-loving citizens. Today, to ride into its tree-bordered avenues from the burning sun of the plains is to enter an oasis of cool delight. Elsewhere men have mortgaged homes to purchase the view of a tree or two. Hasn't a talented and charming actress, Helen Hayes, recently confessed that she had never owned a mink coat but she had paid its equivalent to buy a tree? To which startling admission she added an equally startling omission. She didn't quote a famous far-flung couplet about a tree. She knew, of course, that all would hear it when next they dialed the radio. —Monitor, Boston. Write to Daily NEWS information service in Washington, D. C.

BEHIND THE SCENES IN WASHINGTON -BY RODNEY DUTCHER- WASHINGTON— If any of the kids start asking, "Hay mama, what is politics?" during the conventions, you might give them a little lesson be telling what has been happening in Louisiana, domain of the late Huey Long. Almost unnoticed, the government moved the other day to dismiss criminal income tax evasion charges against Seymour Weiss, chief henchman of Long, and four other Long politicians in New Orleans. Considering- ail the grim and earnest effort the administration applied in its attempt to break up Huey's machine by those income tax prosecutions — including the hiring of such men as former Prohibition Administrator Amos W. Woodcock and ex-Gov. Dan Moody of Texas as special prosecutors — it is interesting now to hear the explanation of the abandonment given by some of the late Huey's heirlets. The administration, they say simply, has been very anxious for "harmony." In any event, the end of the criminal income tax cases comes on top of a remarkable succession of decapitations of federal officials who represented the pro-admihistra- tion group of Democrats and were appointed against the late Huey's bitter opposition. One by one, Jim Farley is knocking off. the men who a year ago were carrying the Roosevelt banner in Louisiana and is replacing them with politicians designated by the Long machine. The Long people explain that the bitter fight between Long and Roosevelt was Huey's personal feud, that lacking a great leader they're powerless to carry it on, anyway, and that they're quite content to dominate Louisiana without looking about for more fields to cohouer as Huey did. So the Louisiana delegation will be whooping it up for Eoosevelt at the Democratic convention, the Long machine politicians have forgotten all about Huey's proposed third party, and the two Louisiana senators, John H. Overton and Mrs. Long, have been playing ball with the administration. And, by way of returning the compliments, the administration is replacing its former loyal appointees. Huey's so-called political heirs profess not to be especially interested in the Rev. Gerald L. K. Smith's proposed merger of the "share-the-wealth" movement with the Townsend movement. They say Smith was only a pajd organizer of the share-the-wealth clubs. Protective copyrights on "Share the Wealth" and Share Our Wealth" were taken out by Earle J. Christenberry, former secretary to Huey and now secretary to Mrs. Long, who is filling out hr husband's unexpired sen- aforial term. Christenberry has turned the copyright over to Mrs. Long. Allen J. Ellender, Huey's former speaker in the Louisiana legislature, who will come here next January for a ?«-yfar senatorial term, is pledged to raise the "Share the Wealth torch again and carry on, although no one suggests he will be anywhere near as effective as Huey was.
