Enlightenment Needed In Weighing Durkin Case The case of Martin Durkin, the resigned secretary of labor, is a nice example of confusion and misrepresentation. On the surface, its elements are simple. Durkin said the White House had agreed to recommend 19 changes in the Taft-Hartley Act, but reneged on the 1 agreement under business pressure which followed premature disclosure of the proposals. Leading White House spokesmen deny, however, that there ever was such an agreement. So who are the citizens — trying to judge their government — supposed to believe? It is possible that there is Borne hairsplitting going on. The two sides to this controversy may not agree on what constitutes an agreement. The confusion does not end there. Top labor leaders and many Democrats are portraying Durkin's resignation as evidence of a widened breach between the administration and labor. Senator Morse of Oregon, a semi-Democrat, cited it as proof the Republican regime is "anti-labor." - Naturally the opposition wants to make all the political hay it can. But in this particular effort it is treating the facts rather casually. The truth is thafrthe Durkin appointment did not bring labor and the Republicans closer together. All the evidence suggests Durkin is an earnest and honorable man. But he did not persuade labor to the administration's views, nor the White House to see it labor's way. And he effected no compromises. In the words of Joseph Loftus, New York Times' veteran labor reporter: "His resignation did not wreck any truce or honeymoon, because there was none." The record shows that union leaders have felt free for months to criticize the administration. They did not regard Durkin as their spokesman at the White House; he is not even in the top AFL hierarchy. But they did view him as a sort of labor hostage in the administration, and thus they soft-pedaled their attacks somewhat. All his resignation appears to mean, therefore, is that Durkin's neutralizing influence is removed from the cabinet and labor may now criticize without restraint. The charge that this proves the President is "anti-labor" is certainly premature, if nothing more. The administration record in the labor field is still to be written. Mr. Eisenhower promised to alter the Taft-Hartley Act wherever it could be ihown to b« "union-butting" in ter. Nineteen proposals were drafted, and then pulled back. But by the President's own word, he intends to submit a series of changes later. Until these are actually offered, and examined on their merits, how can one-fairly judge the administration's attitude toward labor? The fact that Durkin quit doesn't mean that any new set of proposals is >- bound to be "anti-labor." As a matter of fact, the 19 changes mentioned by him fall far short of (satisfying labor's full demands "on Taft-Hartley. Did that make Durkin "anti-labor"? In all of the argument that has engulfed this question since Durkin resigned, one thing seems to have been forgotten. A secretary of labor, no less than the government he serves, is supposed to function in the public interest, not as a narrow lobbyist for organized labor, which represents only 16 million out of a 63-million-man working force. So, in the end, the ordinary citizen must judge this controversy by trying to find where the public interest lies. And he cannot do that until he knows what specific things Mr. Eisenhower proposes for labor. Then he will have a chance to see how the President intends to balande off the legitimate demands of labor against the interests of other groups and the broader interest of the whole public. Views of Others Bad News For The Movies There Is more bad news for the h&rd pressed movie Industry In the announcement that shipments of television sets to dealeri during the first six months of this year were 43 percent above the corresponding period of 1952. For the mortality statistics in the theater business show that for every 2 percent Increase In the number of television seta In a given locality there Is a 1 percent decline In movie attendance. There Is much speculation concerning what Is to become of the movie houses, 6,000 of which have closed since the advent of television. Sug- ' gested Is some sort of arrangement between the movie and television Industries whereby the owners of sets would pay through coin devices for the privilege of viewing feature length pictures. ' But persons who have encountered metered television sets in hotels or motels may recall with what reluctance they paid out quarters and dimes for programs they were accustomed to viewing free In their homes. It Is by no means certain that home viewers with a wide choice of television entertainment would put quarters systematically into their own sets for feature length pictures. In looking to the future It Is entirely possible that the movie Industry in ite present form may vanish from the scene. For the most part that Is what happened to the legitimate theater and It Is what happened to vaudeville. —The Daily Oklahoman. Women'll Do It Humorist James Thurber has presented a. unique theory on achieving ( world peace: The Women'll do it, he says. Although, according to Thurber, It may take a thousand years, eventually they will come through. Nature Is making them larger all the time, he says . . . bigger feet, broader shoulders, tnll- er, more amazon . . . while at the same time men are gradually withering away. When women get big enough and strong enough to bat their husbands clean across the room, mnn will definitely be relegated to the role of a dishwashing houseboy — and won't be allowed to fight. "Wars will never stop until the creative sex, which instinctively hates war, takes charge," so says Thurber. But, men, maybe at that price we'd be better off having the wars! — Bristol Vlrglnla-Tennessearu Subsidy' Sen. Joe McCarthy keeps complaining about the "subsidy" to U. S. newspapers through low second class mail rates. The last official ABC audit on The News, for the year ending March 31, 1953, showed that this newspaper had an average total net paid circulation of 68,463 daily. Of that total, exactly 329 newspapers were sent to subscribers by mail — less than four- tenths of one per cent of the total distribution. Some 'subsidy'I — Charlotte (N.C.) News.

Peter, Edson's Washington Column — Brig. Gen. Frank Dorn Writes Book Filled with Exotic Recipes Larsen By DOUGLAS LRSEN NEA Washington Correspondent (Peter Edison is on Vacation) WASHINGTON — (NEA) — The march of military science has been so fast recently a general or admiral can't leave the Pentagon at night, secure in the belief that he has done his job, unless he h a s made something obsolete that day, Brig. -Gen. Frank Dorn has such a feeling of 3 a t i s f a c- th ? 6e **?*• although h i s ced is a little out of the military leld. He has written "The Dorn Cookbook," which will very likely ntike the great American dieting , ad completely obsolete. | It's a collection of fabulous reel- ; igs which he has collected in his j ariovis tours of duty around the j vorld. Each recipe is nccompa- , iled by an interesting ynrn about 10 w he happened to run across tin I particular concoction. A man f numerous talents, he also cre- ted all of the interesting illustrate ns. Reading the book you wonder ow he found time during his mil- tary career for his work, what p ith stuffing himself with exotic oodies and then filching the for- iuia for later exploitation. But he did. He was on Gen. Joeph W. Stil well's staff dui'.ng Vorld War II and went through whole China-Burma campaign. There's a lot of "fruit salad" on )orn's chest as a result. Just about the only military ex- iloit Dorn has come away from f without some tasty recipe to show for it was a.Nevada atomic bomb test he participated in a couple of years ago. He volunteered to be in one of the front trenches a few hundred yards from a blast, and for a year was one of a handful of men who held the record for being closest to a detonation, willingly. Later when asked about the heat of the bomb he replied: "Well, nuclear fission win never take the place of the chafing dish." Gagsters At Work Since advance copies of the book have gotten around Washington he has been the most sought-after man in town as a guest, and the butt of some gags. A wag from the White House, after reading the book, called Dorn to tell him he was being transferred there as chief cook. A half dozen persons have said Unit the title should have been "The General Fries at Dorn." Even before everyone found out Down was a hot operator with a spatula he was one of the most popular bachelors In town among the social set. The sttyy goes that hostess Gwenn Cnfritz called him to come to one of her expensive shindigs, then cooed into the ! phone: "And dear General Dorn, it would be so nice if you could come i a little early, say about 10 o'clock in the morning, to help w,ith the hors d'ocuvres." If the price of the book doesn't break you the cost of trying out a couple of the recipes will, ft's that kind of a cookbook. But the threat of imminent bankruptcy notwithstanding, the eating ideas he has are worth the cost. Especially if you've been on a low-cal- iw Ihhwat meat, the basic ingredl- the cooking art, like what herbs go tnest mohdAf oth iity nw kunr ents of chicken cacciatore, and how to make flaming kumquat. He goes on from there. Powerful Black Coffee Take his recipe for coffee. He writes: "What would a shivering soldier do without a steaming mu<? of Java to thaw out his bones after his night-long watch on the outpost line?" Then he says' this is the answer: "In a chafing dish or bowl with an alcohol burner put 8 cups strong black coffee, 2 oz. Benedictine, 6 cinnamon sticks, 12 whole cloves, 6 tsps. sugar, 1 % cups brandy, 1 orange and 1 lemon." This recipe apparently was not coordinated with Army Quartermaster Corps. Then there's Dorn's scrambled eggs: 4 eggs, 1 onion, 7 stuffed olives, % cup green pepper, tabas- co to taste, '/2 cup ment stock, cup of cream, ] 4 cup sherry, 2 slices finely chopped bacon and 1 tsbp. butter. The beauty of the book Is that you can really cook the stuff he writes about. That's with the possible exception of his "cabrito In blood" which is young goat cooked in its own blood. And you could even do that if your wife wasn't repulsed by the whole idea and you happened to have a live goat on hand. The story Is that the Kegnery Publishing Company skeptical of the manuscript after the first look, decided to try some of the recipes on its staff. When the editors discovered half the firm rapidly gaining weight as a result, they decided to go ahead with publication. the Doctor Says— Wrltlo for NEA Scrrlo By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. What can be the cause of a scalp disorder with big rod blotches, white flnkes, and itching, asks T.ti.C. These go nwny, he says, but then come back as bed as before. The most likely explanation for Mr. C.'s difficulty — which, by the way Is also often associated with falling hair — is a condition known as scborrhea. . Scborrhea is commonly dlvldod Into two varieties, one, dry seborrhea, or dandruff, and the other, oily seborrhea. Both of these conditions are more common In the scalp than elsewhere, but may extend down to the eyebrows, face, and even other parts nf the body. In oily sebborhea, the hair and scalp feel greasy and arn hard to keep clean because dirt floating In the air sticks and the hair follicles tend to clog up with oil nnd tiny scales, of skin, dirt nnd the like, and this certainly does not make for henllhy ( scalp or hair. Sometimes a true Inflammation of the skin follows or accompanies seborrhen and then thp condition is called dermatitis, and this c.».n be painful as well as annoying. What Is responsible for either form of seborrhea has not brcn determined. No germ hns boon associated with the condition. However, seborrhca of either kind commonly starts after the grncrnl health hns been lowered by such things as Infection or fntlRUP. Anemia, constipation, iml|[;i'.s- tlon, lack of fresh nlr nnd exercise, and the wearing of Ktill nnd Ill- ventilated hats are also said to contribute. No Kasy Cure There is no quick or r.isy cure lor seborrhen. If sonic chronic. weakening dlsc»se is present, It IbcuM, •* Mura*, b« Uut*4. The local treatment of seborrhea Involves first the removal of the crusts and accumulated fatty material and later the use of stimulating applications. The. accumla- tlons arc soaked with an oil fluid to aid removal. This is followed by thorough and frequent washing with soap and water. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Guide Your Partner With Principles By OSWALD JACOBT ' Written for NEA Service When you double a contract of three no-trump you are usually guiding your partner to the best opening lead. The opening leader observes the following principles: 1. If the defenders have bitl a suit, the double calls for a lead In that suit. 2. If each defender has bid a suit, the double requests a lead in the doublpr's suit. 3. If neither defender has bid a suit, the double nskft for ft lead in the first suit bid by the dummy. In today's hand Dummy's first fund only) suit was'spades. Hence the double asked for a spade lead. Enst couldn't bn quite sure that a spade lend would defeat the con- trncl, but he could feel confident that it would give the defenders their best chance. West properly nnd obediently opened a «pnde, and Erist was able to win the trick with the ten when I (lie eight Was plnycd from the dummy, East naturally returned » ~~ and West won with the king. West now returned another spade, giving East another finesse; and East returned another diamond, giving West a second finesse. By this process the defenders were able to take three spade tricks, two diamonds, and the ace 01 clubs. There was nothing South could do about it; he could merely.
