TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1951 Loyalty Gets Cash Value The experiment in labor relations of the oldest packing house in Detroit and its workers, who agreed to work for nine weeks without pay if necessary, has had a happy ending. The management's frank avowal of the difficulty in which it found itself, squeezed between rising prices of meat on the hoof und government ceilings, won the cooperation of the worker*. But instead of nine weeks without pay, the workers got paid in the thirds-week after they went to the rescue of the firm. Their sacrifice for three weeks was enough to let the firm recoup its finances, and the pay checks redeemed the pledge to pay as soon as possible. Such evidences of loyalty are not Boyle Column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK.

One of the sadder aspects of the weird times we live in is the unexpected impact they have on the minds of your young. The other night a father woke up to hear his small son crying bitterly in the dark. He arose and went into the boy's room to find out what was wrong. "I forgot the Lord's Prayer, daddy," sobbed his son. "But you said it just before you went to. bed," said the father. "I know," replied the child. "But I dreamed I was talking to a scientist, and he told me all the air was escaping from the earth, and everybody in the world would soon be dead. And 1 tried to say the Lord's Prayer, and I couldn't remember it." The father soothed his fears and said, "Of course, you remember it, son. Let's say it together." And they chanted, "Our Father, Who art in Heaven--." Soon the small boy was sound asleep again. But the father stayed awake for a long, long time.

What has happened, on the contrary, is a redistribution of wealth under which the less prosperous regions of the country are rapidly catching up xvith those which have been traditionally prosperous. According to the survey made by the department and now described under the title "Regional Trends in the United States Economy." the equalization process applies not only to population but to business activity and personal incomes. Areas with small capital investment are moving ahead much faster than heavily capitalized areas. Per capita income tax payments in the poorer regions show a much greater increase than payments in regions which always have been regarded as wealthy. No section of the country Is standing still.

We have never been a people to be truly t h a n k f u l for little things, or to worry much about them. In our strength, we have taken care of the little things ourselves. Our thanks, and our prayers, when they strike deep, have always been for those things which are beyond the individual reach. The dreams and hopes and aspirations of a people, of humanity, have been the goal. For those things and the fact that they still endure we can be thankful now. The feast is a symbol, even as the one day is symbolic. The thanks and the prayers are the reality, thanks for the goal, prayers for the strength. One day is not enough, nor ever will be» One season, one year, is not enough. It must endure. IN. Y. Times-) Letters To The Editor: ".Appreciates Support of Successful "Optimist Week."

Today In Washington Truman Could Take A Page From Predecessors ·Who Dealt Quickly, Effectively With Scandals By DAVID LAWRENCE Dear Miss Dix: What would you suggest in t h i s dilemma? I find it necessary to come to town once a week, which brings me calling on my friends anywhere from 7:15 a. m. to 7:30 a. rn., then 1 spend a good, part of the day with them. 1 come that early as 1 ride with my husbands who reports to work at li:00 a. m. Several of these friends love to sleep in the morning so 1 feel a little guilty about breaking into their routine. Do you think J am being unreasonable to alternate my calls on my friends once it week? Nola Answer: You certainly have r.bout as odd a visiting schedule as 1 hnve ever encountered.

They may be able to use it--provided the parallel is carried out. The quotation comes to light in n new biography of Hughes written by Merlo J. Pusey, associate editor of the Washington Post, who says that the candor and sense of proportion exhibited by Hughes in that speech "had much to do with t u r n i n g the public mind away troni oil toward the rising tide of national prosperity." Hughes was at the time off the Supreme Court bench, having resigned in 3916 to make an unsuccessful race for the presidency. His speech, delivered on April 15, 1924, read in part as Jollows: "Let it be understood that we do not condone wrong; we extenuate no crime. . .We would bring to the bar of justice evciy dishonest official and every perverter of administration in or- out of office. . . . "Neither political party has a monopoly of virtue or of rascality. "H.ere are crooks in every community and in every party. Now and then, one gets into office. Let wrongs be exposed and punished, but let not partisan Pecksniffs affect a 'holier than thou' attitude The corrupting currency may be found in Democratic satchels. One who is corrupt is as faithless to his party as to his government. Guilt is personal and corruption knows no party. "Today, counsel of eminent ability and unimpeachable integrity, selected from both the great parties by a Republican President, are t a k i n g appropriate legal proceedings by which all the questions which have been raised as to the leasing of the public domain will be threshed out, every public interest will be safeguarded and every guilty person punished. These cases are in the courts where they belong and the courts will decide. It would be foolish, false and unpatriotic to breed distrust either of the integrity of the government or of the soundness of American life. That would be to assail the honor of the hosts of officials demoting their lives with unselfish fidelity to the country's interests." William Howard Taft, an ex- President at that time, thought the speech was "as exceptional as the one you delivered lor me in 1908 " President Calvin Coolidge, who hud come in from the vice-Presidency in 1923 on the death of Warren Harding, was re-elected in a landslide in J924 because, as author Pusey says, the voters "muit have concluded that the Admims- tiation had successfully purged itself of the corruption it had inherited." But the Democratic speakers of 1952 will not be able to use the above quotation unless President Truman does what Calvin Coolidge did. For the latter appointed two prominent lawyers, one a Democrat and the other a Republican, as special prosecutors reporting to him instead of to the Attorney General. The result was that a Republican cabinet officer who had leccived a $100,000 bribe in a satchel was put in jail, as were others who had held high official positions under a Republican administration. Mr. Truman thus far has not taken such a dramatic or f a r - icaching step. The. prosecuting machinery of the Truman administration has lumbered along slowly, prodded largely by disclosures made by Congressional investigating committees. In 1924 the congressional investigations really Jirst brought out the oil scandals, but Mr. Coolidge was alert enough to act with stern efficiency in prosecuting, letting the chips fall where they might. If the Truman administration does the same thing, it can live down the scandals now being uncovered. Righteous indignation alone will not do the trick. That Hughes speech lies ready for use by the Democratic speakers--provided their President does exactly what a Republican President did in somewhat the same circumstances in 1924.

"Oh, no." said the lad, "someone must have planted it." "Look aiound you at the trees, the mountains and the skies," said the father. "Did they come by chance?"
