MONDAY, SEPT. 21, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Ike Has Large Task in Filling Vacancies PAGE NINS By JAMES MAKLOW WASHINGTON' UP) — President Eisenhower is shopping around ,for two meh to fill a couple of important jobs and, if he had to run an ad for them, this might be about Wanted: One man, very thlck- ekinned, to be secretary of labor, salary $22,500; another, expert on injured feelings, as Chief Justice of the United States, salary $25,500. .-No clock-watchers, need apply. The new secretary of labor will have a busy year ahead of him, with long hours of work and no assurance that all his efforts won't end in smoke. He's almost sure to be a target for criticism. 7 Long hours %o with the job of chief justice. After his day on the bench, in his office, in conference with the other justices, he has to take his work home with him. The late Justice Vinson was an extraordinarily well-rounded man, with experience in Congress, in the executive branch and as judge in the U.S. Court of Appeals before he took over the Supreme Court's top job. But he had an added virtue which was badly needed when former resident Truman picked him: He was good at spoiling injured feelings. At the time Vinson took over, there were differences among s^me of the other eight justices—personal as well as juridical differences. It was a tribute to his ability as a doctor of personality that no more internal explosions were heard after he moved Into the court. The new man will have that old problem to consider since Vinson probably didn't remove the ailments-just reduced the inflammation. In other years the job of secretary of labor was a kind of mild occupation, particularly during the war years when Mrs. F ranees erkins held it. In that period President Franklin D. Roosevelt set up the War Labor Board, under William H. Davis. It controlled wages and labor disputes, and thus Mrs. Perkins was left on the sidelines. In the last years of the Truman administration, then Secretary of Labor Maurice Tobin was overshadowed by John R. kSteelman whom Truman brought into the White House as his labor adviser. Tobin made speeches. Steelman Bulled the strings. Unless Eisenhower also gets a string-pulling; labor adviser, the new secretary will have his hands full from the start. He'll have to work with Con gb5))0 unions, management and the White House In trying to change the Tall-Hartley Labor Relations Act. On that subject he can't please everyone. It Is almost certain the new secretary won't come from organized labor, as did his predecessor, Martin P. Durkin, president of the APL Plumbers' Union. That would make him suspect by organized abor from the start. Eisenhower said during the presidential campaign and in his February State of the Union message to Congress, that there was need for T-H Law changes. But anyone who knew Washington and politics and the intense feeling over T-H—in. Congress, unions nnd business—would have ieen surprised if any changes had been made this year. T-H was passed in 1947 while the Republicans controlled Con- ;ress. In 1948 Truman won election on a platform promising to blast T-H. For the next four years the Democrats were In charge of Congress. But they didn't, or couldn't, blast T-H. During his eight months as sec retary, Durkin worked to find changes which Congress, unions, business and the White House would approve. He acted like a man who thought he was getting some place. Then he quit, voicing frustration. The White House, he said, had broken an agreement reached with him to back 19 proposed T-H changes. Durkin's successor will need thicker skin. The AFL, which seemed fair))/ restrained about . administration delay in suggesting T-H changes while Durkin was -on the scene, has now officially exploded at El- senhower. AFL President George Meany ast week accused Eisenhower of being a weak. leader unable to stand up under big business pressure. In view of what hasn't been done lo change T-H through four years of Democratic administration and one of Republican, it should come as no surprise if no changes are nade in 1954, either.

A man's watch is not keeping correct time. H« carries it to a jeweler. If there is a knock in the motor of his car, he carries it to huynechanic. But when man himself Is out of adjustment^ when there are defects in his character, and when his weakness of mind and soul is destroying much of the peace and joy of his life, man decides he can make the necessary corrections himself. So he reads a "self-help" book, he sets out to keep busy or take a vacation, to forgive himself and forget the past, to make changes in his thinking. But any program of self-salvation ultimately fails. For just so long as we were convinced that wt could live exclusively by our own individual strength and intelligence, for just that long was a working faith in a higher Power impossible. As long as we placed self- reliance first, a genuine reliance upon a higher Power was out of the question. That basis ingredient of alrH' humility, a desire to seek and do God's will, was missing. So we finally become "fed-up" with our way and get honest wifh ourselves. We quit bluffing and honestly give God a chance to remove from our lives all that stands in the way. of our Sobriety and our usefulness to Him and to others. God is waiting. He does not push Himself on us. Rut when an alcoholic is driven to his knees by his own insufficiency, God is ready to lift him up and put him on his feet again. But let us forever remember . that God does not do for us what w$ think we can do for ourselves. NEXT WEEK - STEP EIGHT ALCOHOLICS ANONMYOUS Club Room over Hardy Furniture Co.
