Washing- No Watchdog Support for * permanent joint congressional "watchdog" committee of Congress to check military expenditures is growing. It has been proposed in two resolutions, both of which have bipartisan sponsorship. Former President Hoover has publicly expressed approval of the idea. Congress may get around to acting on it early next year. It is the sort of thing the President cannot veto. But many billions will have been spent without such supervision. When appropriations were- measured in the millions, the ordinary congressional setup was probably adequate to guard against waste in military spending. Now appropriations are measured in the billions, figure heavily in taxes, and are dangerously inflationary. Keeping .guard over such spend 2 ing is too big a job for Congress without full-time expert assistance. The proposed watchdog committee would have experts--and .it would need plenty of them to keep track on how wisely the $57.000,000.000 military budget for the current fiscal year is being spent. The way to begin io economize is to attack the biggest items first.

Against such rainy days they should write down a list of all the things they really would miss if they were out of this world. Then, when they felt bad. they could pull out their own catalogue of, personal pleasures, read it over --and feel better. A few things would be on every person's list. But each would have some items that would be the private fruits of his own lifetime.

The proposed watchdog committee would also serve as a useful counterweight to congressional awe of the military. No Congressman ·wants to vote against Hiational security. It Is easier to give the generals mo;t of what they ask, regardless of misgivings, than it is to analyze their figures without year-round expert help. The whole process can be tightened up -- and the sooner the better. Home Most Hazardous The rising tide of traffic fatalities-, heading for the millionth death since the invention of the automobile, still falls far short of the deaths and injuries resulting from home accidents. The second annual Safely In- stitue for Parents and Teachers just held in New York uncovered some startling statistics. » Perils of the rocking chair exceed those in car seats, delegates were told, and the stove poker is a greater menace than the "hot rods'' devised by teen-agers. Toppling over in rocktng elmirs nnd stumbling over pokers by firesides take a higher toll than daiedevil youngsters so widely pxiblici/.ed. Last year, about seven million \\ere killed and injured in the households of America. In the same period, a million and a half were being killed and injured in traffic.

Letters To The Editor Middletown High Student Pleads For Right To Dance With Her Choice. To The Editor of The News, Sir: I am a senior in high school anc I now have a fairly good conception of democracy. There exists in my school a situation which fellow students and I feel is entirely undemocratic. When you reach your junior and senior year, you begin to think a great deal about the future. This includes becoming interested m a person with whom you wish to share your joys and sorrows. You begin to pair off and spend much of your spare time with this person. The principal and faculty members in my school seem to forget that we have hearts as well as minds, passions as well as brains. At lunch time we dance in the gymnasium. The younger students dance with a great number of their schoolmates. Among the juniors and seniors you see more steady couples. We have been toid that it is undemocratic to "specialize" one person's time. And unless it is stopped this hour of social activity will be taken from us. In my mind it is no; undemocratic but one of the laws of nature. God made man and woman for each other. We are fulfilling God's intention when we learn to love one person. In this world where tomorrow is so uncertain must we turn our backs to and ignore our best friend. No, we shall not and we shall fight for our ideals.

Hyattsville. spent some time with WASHINGTON, Nov. 17--Preui- dent Truman, has every intention of sending a representative to the Vatican no matter what happens to del.iy or block confirmation of the appointment of Gen. Mark Clark as ambassador. Thla U because Mr. Truman has made a commitment to the Pope that ho would send a representative to the Vatican, and he means to abide by that pledge. It U not known just when the agreement was arrived at or by what means, but it is assumed that either the message was conveyed through Myron C. Taylor, who resigned In. January, 1950, as personal representative of the President at the Vatican, or by someone else who has since visited the Pope in behalf of, the President and conveyed the same information. It could, of course, have been an exchange of letters, but the important fact is that Mr. Truman has given assurances that he intends io remain faithful to his promise. If both Houses of Congress fail to bring to a vote or to pass the special legislation, required to give Genersl Clark the status that has been requested for him, so that he can serve in a diplomatic post and still retain his rank in the army, the President may name someone else. in fact, it would not be surprising if sometime during the next session General Clark himself asked that his name be withdrawn so that it would not interfere with possible opportunities he may have for piomotion to a more responsible position in the army than he now holds as commander of the field forces. Thii.s it could turn out that Mr. Trumm would send a "personal representative" to the Vatican without waiting for congressional action on the matter of an embassy. He has handled H by the "peisonal representative" method before, and so has President Roosevelt. But the envoy would not then be a formal member of the diplomatic service. So far as the Vatican is concerned, it naturally would prefer that the representation be icgularized as an embassy. If Congress shows a disposition to delay indefinitely, Mr. Truman is determined that during the balance of his term there will be some Vatican. representation at the Inciuentally, the National Catholic Welfare Conference here, in a statement just released, gives the .statistics about diplomatic representation at the Vatican by various count] les and says: "It should be platn from the statistics we cite that many countries which do not have Catholic majorities maintain relations with the Vatican City on the ground that it is a sovereign state. The only major countries which do not send representatives to the Vatican City are: Communist Russia, Communist China, and the United States of America." The President has been impressed by the fact that all the other major powers in the free world except the United States are represented at the Vatican. It is known, too, that the furor which the appointment of General Clark has brought about has been carefu'ly noted by the President, and it is reported that he expected far more disapproval than has been manifested. But there are evidences that the issue is likely to provoke even more discussion in the future than the past. This correspondent is in receipt of several documents and statements from Protestant sources indicating deep feeling about it. The principal argument made is that diplomatic recognition involves a union of church and state. Catholic statements, on the other hand, insist that the American hierarchy does not believe in a union of church and state either. This phase of the debate is not likely to be resolved in the court of public opinion, because it is bound to be lost in religious prejudices. The issue, however, will play a part in next year's politics. The Republican-dominated Massachusetts Senate just the other day voted unanimously to support President Trumen's proposal. The membership there consists of 20 Protestants. 19 Catholics and one Jew. No record vote was taken. It is regrettable, of course, that the controversy has arisen at all. It is still a mystery why the President, holding the viewpoint he has expressed, didn't promptly appoint a successor to Myron Taylor when he resigned in January 1950. That would have simply continued a precedent established by his predecessor in the White House. Even the "personal representative" idea, on the other hand, was vehemently opposed by Protestant groups, some of whom claim the President promised he wouldn't do t. Th;s form of appointment did lot, however, evoke the widespread bitterness that has developed as a consequence of the formal- uebt for the establishment of an embassy at the Vatican. (Repioduction Rights Reserved) TellsOfGrowth Of Jewish State Mrs. Aura Hertzog, -wife of the Naval and Air Attache of the Israel- lau Embassy, spoke on the "Bulh ot Israel' mi Friday morning Brodbeck Hall, Hood College. Mrs. HerUog said that about 80 years ago, the Jews began to rebuild their land; the Holy Land had been their home, and they had always hoped to return there from the countries to which they 'had been dispersed 2,000 years ago. She pointed out that their task was different from that of the American pioneers, who came to virgin soil. The Israelis have had to restoie the fertility of their ruined land, often digging up whole cities that had been coveied, and begin anew. Not only did they have this to contend with, but they also had lo light disease at the same time. "Sounds romantic, but it took * great deal ot sweat and tears to build up our country again," Mrs. Hertzog said. The wife of the attache icminded that when the Jews wanted to set up a Jewisn state in the Holy Land the British were against it, since they were anxious lo keep on good terms with the Arabs. This started the Jews out on the road to independence. "We are a 'UN baby', for they helped us become a sovereign state over three year 1 ! ago" said Airs. Hertzog. "The state was formed so that the persecuted Je\\s from many countries would have a home where they could be ftee." The new state has doubled its population since its birth. The majority of the population is Jewish, but there a t e many Moslems and Christians, the speaker stated. Everything in Israel is rationed Though the population is growing ability of the nation to support it, the people are still willing to accept immigrants who choose to come. Mis. Hert/.og said "we will not close the former's mother, Mrs. Harry ? u . r dooi :f to anyone, and our policy Hesse. --Mr. and Mrs. Jack Ruby entertained at dinner for members of G.
