Page 4 l»if!cum Inside Washington- Washington StateV Sen. Jackson Seen As 'Veep' Candidate WASHINGTON — Senator Henry M. '(Scoop) Jackson of Washington is a young- Democrat now being discussed in high party circles as a possible vice presidential nominee, Jackson's chances for a second spot on the 1956 ticket may well hinge on his performance in the Senate probe of charges that the United States lags dangerously behind Russia in ballistic missile production. Should that hard-hitting, 43-y.ear-old, for-. mer prosecuting attorney create sensational headlines, he will, politicians reckon, be in a position to jockey for the nomination. Adiai E. Stevenson, probable Democratic presidential nominee, is known to think well of Jackson. Other party strategists are. said, to feel that the personable, earnest Democrat from the Pacific .coast would be an excellent balancing factor against Vice President Richard M. Nixon. Jackson and Nixon are the same age. but politicaJly are poles apart, with the Democrat leaning to the liberal side on issues which have found Nixon, following a conservative line. • HERBERT HOOVER Jr.?—If Nixon does not run on the GOP presidential ticket with President Eisenhower, the possibilities include the name of Herbert Hoover Jr., the under secretary of state. Aside from bearing the name of his former President father, the young Hoover has the unqualified support of his State department colleagues and has quietly won the i*es»ect and admiration of many on Capitol Hill. It is argued that Hoover would be the ideal vice presidential nominee to win approval of tie Republican right wing—and also to take over some of the social and diplomatic functions which Mr, Eisenhower has said he must forego if re-elected. HEALTH ISSUE—Political veterans say, meanwhile, that the President's health will be - a key issue in toe forthcoming campaign v despite GOP warnings that it'might "boomerang" against the Democrats. You can look, they say, for increasing Democratic attacks stressing the theme that Ike is running as a "part-time" President and the White House is a job for a healthy, vigorous man. Democrats put little stock in Republican National Chairman Leonard Hall's boomerang theory. They say that Hall's comparison of Ike's case with that of the'late President Roosevelt is baseless. * These Democrats note that Ike himself has injected the issue of health into talks to the public while FDR never mentioned the subject publicly despite his obvious physical handicap. Many Democrats, mainly National Chairman Paul Butler, are convinced that they can win votes away from. Mr. Eisenhower by stressing that his health makes him a risk in the White House, and they will push this issue in the campaign. EASTLAND ISSUE — Republican strategists are expected to seize on the elevation of Senator James Eastland (D), Mississippi, to chaii-manship of the Senate judiciary committee as a potent political issue. Eastland, who gained the post through seniority upon the death of Senator Harley Kilgore of West Virginia, is an outspoken foe of racial integration in the schools. His chairmanship gives Eastland power of confirming all federal judgeships nominees and the latter, particularly judges, will play key roles in deciding whether southern localities are making progress toward ending- segregation. As head of the'judiciary committee. East- loud is in a position to block confirmation, of any judges who might not share his anti- integration views. GOP strategy will focus on the fact that if the Republicans control the Senate, Eastland will no longer be chairman of the powerful group. Republican leaders feel this will constitute a strong political issue in. northern states where close Senate races are anticipated. Here's What It Looks Like By Carmage Walls THERE ARE, of course, many farms in Morocco owned by French, landowners that seemed to b£ quite prosperous, .but even on these .farms we saw instance? which .indicated extreme poverty on the part of the majority of the workers. These farms generally we were told averaged 350 acres. After the groap had been escorted quite ingeniously by devious byways to the airport, we were given the opportunity of mingling •with the local press of the country in taking pictures of the Sultan at the airport. In addition to the guard of honor.and literally hundreds of chieftains of this Arabic nation, the .20 o<3<3 wives and the princesses of the Suilan were on hand to greet him. The Consul of the Sultan and his chieftains were extremely stern on this occasion of his triumphal return, but his subjects by large went into a frenry of joy and chanting; at his appearance. After leaving the airport the group went to the Royal Palace where we were received by the vice president, of the Consul, INfHamid Cegharf. together with Mouiey Abdallah Brahia, Secretary of Stare in charge of Public Information. In answer to a question as to what this group of newspaper people might do to be of help to the Moroccan nation, the vice president stated thai since Morocco was the first county to sign a treaty with the United States reeogiuzhig its independence, it would be nice if the United States would be the first to reeogriize the independence of Morocco. Ceghari further advised that the Moroccan nation intended to be friends not only with France but with all of the other friendly nations. UPON LEAVING the Royal Palace the group was received by the former President General,. Andre Dubois, who for the last two days has assumed ihe new title of "High Commissioner." During a lengthy question and answer period, the High Commissioner Dubois said that no%v that France and Morocco had reached an. agreement as to the Moroccan independence, ihe treaty signed provided for the continued negotiation to arrive at an agreement as to the exact details of the economic provisions that must be worked out to the gatisfactior, of two equal nations, France and Morocco, keeping in mind the obligations of both countries to their friends. The attitude of the French group, tr> this writer seemed to be that of a losing party of a polities' campaign in. the United States, that they were try Ins very hard to'be good sports about it and look at th' future with their beads held high with confidence. MEMO: From The Sun News Desk By Preston Pendergrass WHO CA2v ARREST the governor if the need should arise? That is a question we asked Attorney George Chandler several weelcs ago. George said he had never had occasion to read the lav.-, if there was one, providing for the arrest of such officials as the governor, but that he would ba giad to i-ook into the matter when he had time. He looked, but could find nothing explicit in his law books, so he asked a friend, Fred Jones, who is assistant state attorney general, whether he knew the answer. Fred didn't offhand, but he agreed to do a little searching. ...•-At length he came through with a letter, which said: "So far as I can tell, the constitution does not cover the arrest of the governor or prohibit same. The only provision noticed is immunity from arrest for senators and legislators in certain circumstances.'" There you have it. folks. Apparently, the lawmakers did not think it necessary to provide for the arrest of high officials, and left it to be done through ordinary channels in event it needed to be done. Ir. that case, any legally constituted officer could make the arrest. yOU'VE HEARD a lot of reference recently—and you're bound to hear more as the political pot boils harder—to so-called "Liberals" and "Conservatives." To most of us. these are rather vague terms, so let's roe ii we car, define them so they can be understood. The terms are used with confidence by speakers cr,d writers just as if they meant something very MY NEW YORK definite and certain, like labels on canned goods at the grocery store. Actually, the meanings of the terms "conservative"' and "liberal'' depend on the context in which they are used and the specific issue that is involved. literally, a conservative is a person who wants to conserve, to save something he regards as important and valuable. A liberal, on the other hand, is a person who is willing to accept change when he is convinced that it is advisable. Thus it appears that almost any. normal person would be «cservaUye. irL:sq^e;>Jimtters and liberal .in others. '"'•'"'•'• "•'•''•'-."•' ' '^-l.^^f'' ! r> To say, then, that a man seeking public office'is* a conservative or a liberal is partially a misnomer. He may be liberal in some of his thinking and conservative in other. We wouldn't advise taking at face value the liberal and conservative tags that politicians wear. They may not be either—or they may be both, but there can be no '"dyed-in-the-wool" liberal or conservative. A ROUGH DRAFT of a "Resolution of Interposition" has been published in Virginia. The newspapers say it will be presented (after the rough spots are ironed out) and probably overwhelmingly passed by the next session of the Virginia Legislature as a weapon against integration. <If this happens, history will be repeating itself in Virginia, for it was in the legislative halls at Richmond that the first resolution advancing the doctrine of interposition was offered in I79S—opposing the Alien and Sedition Acts.

John 15:5. By Mel Heimer fathers' fathers, downtown Manhattan was de rigeur. In recent years, the East Side from, say, the 50s to the 80s, including the legendary Beekman and Sutton Places, has been the only impressive-address community in town. Go on and hoot at this. The truth if. a good, fancy murder on the East Side will get twice the play on the front pages than a West Side shooting will. And, of course, if you get onft north of jOOth street. East or West Side, it ends up with two paragraphs on Page 7. THK FUXXY THING is, a lot of well-known bigwig.* in Xc-.v York live elsewhere than the upper East Side and in some dark manner seem to get by with it. Maurice Evans, for instance, resides in an old carriage house down in Greenwich Village—one of the nicest homes I've ever been in. Actress Viveca Lindfors lives just off Third avenue on the fringe of YorkviUe, where the" right people wouldn't be caught drunk, and Katie Hepburn, of course, has diss in i'Jlh street just off Second.

We in our union, are very interested in the proposed housing program for the City of Baytown. It is the only available means of eradicating substandard shacks in which the low earning workers of Baytown are compelled to live because of their income limitations. We also believe this program v/ould be a forward step by the citizens of Baytown in eliminating some of the slums of which every city ha-s its share. In behalf of the members of this union who live in Baytown and may be eligible for such housing, we wish to go on record »n endorsing this program and we are urging our members who fire qualified to vote to exercise that privilege.

They happen because an efficient manager is at the helm; They don't happen just by accid'enL Likewise, strike-torn factories and snarled- up foreigri af/eirs usually happen when, an inefficient .management is steering things. Take for example what'is happening in and around the island of Cyprus, which has caused more loss of friends and prestigre for the U. S. A. than any other piece of ren! estate of similar acreage any place in the world. The man in chargx- of our foreign affairs while Secretary Dulles is away—and he's away a lot— is one of the nicest guys in Washington, Undersecretary of State Herbert Hoover Jr. He is also frank and honest "I don't know a thing 1 about Cyprus." he told ;\ friend last week. "I've got to bone up on it." Yet young Hoover is the man who informs President Eisenhower. He is the only state department official who sees him. This is like "the blind leading the blind. Last week at his press conference, President Eisenhower said he had spent long hours at night working on the problem of pence in the Near EasS. The night before, he had been to the Playhouse Theater to attend the opening of Richard ITJ. At the same opening he met the British ambassador. Sir P.oger Makins. That same day, the British foreign office had been issuing scathing statements about U. S- interference in Cyprus, while the British press had been featuring even mom scathing headlines — JLS the result of a call by the U. S. Ambassador in Athena. Cavendish Cannon, on the Greek foreign office, THE CHIEF trouble was that when Amboa-iador Cannon called on the Greek foreign office, the State department in Washington had failed to notify the British government what he was doing. Thfo is a routine matter in foreign affairs. When you have two good friends — the British and the Greeks — you don't call on one regarding highly important business pertaining to both without telling the other what you're doing. This is automatic. However, this routine was neglected by acting 5Jecret.irj" ot State Hoover. He or those around him dld'n't realize iis importance. He also failed to inform President; Eisenhower :-.'3 Eisenhower could pass a friendly word to the British ambassador when he saw him at the theatre. The ambassador got in touch with the State department next day and finally smoothed the ruffled feelings of the British, but only after British headlines and editorials .had made a temporary dent in Anglo-American friendship. These are little things. When taken separately, they don't seem important; when allowed to pile up, they can cause trouble in a Near East which i.s already on tenterhook. 1 ?. Another little thing: Jke declined to give a state dinner for the visiting President of Italy on the grounds of health. But one day before President Gronchi arrived, the President attended a dinner for John Foster Dulles. Five days later he gave a big political dinner himself for GOP bigwigs, and shortly after that he went to :i movie opening. Meanwhile, the President of Italy was still in the U.S. THERE'S A lot of smouiderir.j behind senate scenes in regard tt: civil rights. Senators are outwardly poiite and cordial, but privs.:.- movcs are hatching that may cruui into serious fireworks. For one thing, the old, unwritten coalition between Souther.-. Democrats and the Republicans I;i« been severely strained, jierhaw permanently disrupted". By this coalition, Northern Hr. publicans voted with the Sou'.;, against civil rights. The souther;: senators in turn voted with th,; Republicans on conservative economic issues. But the southern roanift'ste against the Supreme Court h,v put the Republicans on the spoL .It has aroused so much resentment among northern voters Republicans who would normal!;, back the South on civi! rights i;; the p;i.vt, today won't dare do so. Take the case of Sen. Even.-;! Dirkscss of Illinois, a Northern Republican who normally would gc along with his southern. friends, Today this would be political suicide. The reverberations from thfl Negro population of Chicago woi:!;i unseat him. The whole uneasy issue is <i\:c to come to a head shortly when Sen. Tom Hennings, Missouri Democrat, moves for Judiciary committee approval of four civil- riglttx bills, including an ami- lynching bill and a bill to protect Negroes' voting righti- with severe penalties for local officials who :nterfcru with those rights. O R D 17s r A R 1L Y THESE bill,would be bottled up in the Judiciary by the new Disiccrat chairman. Senator Eastiand of Mississippi. Eastland'.s tactics are tot block, the civil-rights bills until the end of the Senate session, then let his southern colleagues filibuster them to death. Hennings. however, has other ideas. And with the Republicans on tho spot, he can probably carry out those ideas. He figures he has eight votes—or a majority of the 15-man Judiciary committee. The votes arc: Hennings. Mo.; Kr- fauver, Tcnn.; O'MohoA-y, Wyo.; Neely, W. Vn,: all Democrats; and Wiley, Wis.; Langer, N.D.; Butlc-, M<i, and Dirkson, 111., Republicans. Ordinarily Butler and Dirl;.so:v might not vote for civii .rights but this time it's different. The rl.v-. tion year plus the .southern ninni- festo have put thorn on the spcil. Btitier would lose most of Baltimore if he didn't vote for civM rijfhts. Sen. KasUant! has some trick;; up his sleeve. Ho is trying to wi:v O'Mahoney by promising him the chairmanship of the Anti-Monopoly committee, which according to .seniority, goes to Kefauver. Hr will also pres.'iure Kefauver by threatening to cut off money fur his Juvenile Delinquency committee. However, neither is likely to succeed. The civil-rights bills probably will get out of committee to the Senate floor when- they'll touch off one of the bitterest battles of. the congressional session. If they am reported out early enough, it: will bo very difficult for a filibuster to kill thorn.
