THURSDAY, DEC. 6. 1951 The Blue And The Gray As the amazing fad passes its crest for displaying the Confederate flag wherever Americans may be found throughout the world, it has sent off its own offshoot that may overtake it. Union Jack Blue caps and Johnny Reb Grays are on' display in specialty shops everywhere. They invite the brotherhood of today to honor the rivalry of yesteryear by the wearing of the blue and the gray, exact replicas of the caps worn by the forces in the War Between the States, complete with shiny peaks, metal crossed guns and buttons. Boyle Column By UAL BOYLE NEW YORK, Dec. 6 t/rv-Once upon a time Charles Dickens wrote a famous Christmas Carol about an old shilling-squeezer named Ebon* e?er Scrooge and how he caught the holiday spirits. Did you ever wonder what happened after that? Well. . . A well-dressed fat man, his arms full of gaily-wrapped packages, stood by a bus sign, Idly he watched a street corner Santa Claus soliciting donations. A seedy old man in a worn brown coat came by. "Anything for the unfortunates?" Cried the Santa, The seedy old man paused, fumbled through his pockets, pulled out a worn quarter and put it in the hand of Santa Claus. "Christmas!" He jeered. "Bah, humbug!" He wrapped his worn brown coat tighter around his throat, and walked on. Then he saw the fat, well- dressed man. He held out .his hand and said wbinlngly: "Can you stake a fellow to a bile brother? 1 haven't eaten for two days?" "But I just saw you give a quart- Many explanations have been of- er to that Santa Claus." said the fered for this sudden demonstration of flags and caps of a war that end' ed 86 years ago. Our own guess is that the passing of the thin lines of the Blue and Gray veterans has brought out a subconscious tribute of af.'ect'.on that his expressed itself in the flag and caps that distinguished the contest and signalizes the bond forged by their descendants. fat man. "If I give you another quarter, will you give that one away, too?" "I probably will -- it's the old Christmas spirit in me." agreed the seedy character dismally. "The Christmas spirit is a curse with me -- it run.s in my family." The fnt man said he didn't understand. The seedy man said he'd be glad to explain -- in return for a msal. The two went into a cafeteria, and the seedy man ate greedily. He then told the following tale: "My great-great uncle was a The Nation Today By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON, Dec. 6 W-- We could all learn more about th* doings in government if mymberg of Congress, when they're Investigat- injf, would show a little more zeal about quizxing member* of Congress, too.

Dec. 6-- It look like a congressional Inquiry wil be made Into the mix-up over the news dispatches last week which said an informal cease-fire hac vestigating the way taxes and tax frauds have been handled by the Internal Revenue Bureau and the Department of Justice. Disclosures about the bureau show it to have been in scandalous shape. And the disclosures seem far from ended. Already some 50 bureau employes have been fired. Some have been indicted- President Truman himself fired T, Lamar Caudle from his job as Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Justice Department's tax division. Caudle normally had final say on who would be prosecuted for tax fraud- Durin'g his testimony before the subcommittee, Caudle said members of Congress put "tremendous pressure" on him in behalf of their constituents involved in tax frauds. Then Caudle hastily added that this "tremendous pressure"* from members of Congress was quite all right. No one aked him to. do anything wrong, he said. The committee apparently accepted Caudle's judgment on this point although it seems to think his judgment was questionable on other matters. It never asked him for a list 'of ' the congressional pressunzcrs or tor a iy explanation of what kind of pressure was applied or how. English merchant.

"Where there's smoke, there's fire" Is an old saying but never more applicable than to the many cases in which officials give the impression that reports which they deny have no basis whatsoever implying that the whole thing is usuaJly invented by the press. The correspondents, especially in wartime, are sometimes mistaken but more often they are misled unintentionally by legitimate- news sources. Mr. Truman at Key West referred a few days ago to what he called a "fake" report oi an armistice just before the actual cease-fire which ended World War I. While the incident is now more than 33 years old and will be remembered only by those who saw an amazing demonstration of enthusiasm and jubilation in America from coast to coast, it arose out 'of an erroneous report in which the government itself bungled the news by delaying the publication of a correction. This writer asked Roy Howard, head of the Scripps-Howard news- one in the United States who is in favor of a free press mourned the death of one of the great free- newspapers of Latin America. Now the presses are rolling again in the old building, and a rag it'- sembling the old Prensa is bemn loaded onto delivery trucks. But La Prensa is still dead. The creature of Peron that bears its name is a zombie--it looks the- same, it appears to move and act like an free and living thing, hut the breath cl life has gone out of it and *he smell of corruption hangs over it.

La er another Justice Department attorney, John H. Mitchell, who worked under Caudle, told the committee Caudle and Frank W. Boya Democratic Congressman Alabama, had shown "un- u t u a l " interest in an Alabama tax frr.ud case. The-committee said it would be glad to hear Boykln, but in a statement he said the tax fraud case is closed and he isn't going to come to Washl ifUon.

After two days of hearings the committee exonerated Kins. But iU hearings wore behind closed doors. Congrcsr'onal investigations are not only a right but a necessity.

For it never has been revealed how Washington officials were really responsible -- as they were in the Korean episode of last week -- for the circumstances that gave rise to an erroneous piece of news. "I was informed," writes Mr. Howaid in a letter to this correspondent, "by both Colonel House and the then Secretary of War, Newton D. Baker, that messages (saying there had been an armistice signed) virtually identical to the one received by Admiral Wilson at Brest were sent to Secre- taiy of State Lansing by Ambassador Sharp at Paris, and to Secretary of War Baker and Secretary of the Navy Daniels by Major Warburton and Captain Jackson, the army and the Navy attaches at the Paris Embassy. , "Colonel House told me that as soon as he learned of the messages which had been sent to Washington he got in touch with Ambassador Sharp and told him that the information was erroneous and that as a result the messages sent to State. War and Navy were promptly 'killed' from Pans. Captain Jackson also wired a 'kill" to Ad- miral Wilson, who was out of his office at the moment the correction arrived. As soon as his office contacted Admiral Wilson, the latter dispatched a messenger to me, and I sent a 'kill' on my original bulletin something less than two hours after the bulletin had been filed. "Acting on orders from Secretary Daniels' office ray correcting story to the United Press was held up by the Navy censorship in New York and forwarded directly to the Navy Department in Washington, where Secretary Daniels ordered it held up until released by him. Daniels later told me that he ordered the correction held up until he could receive a reply from Admiral Wilson. Meantime, as I understand it, Daniels was out of Washington on November 7th, but more or less in contact with his office by phone. "About 8 o'clock on the morning of November 8th, a former Scripps" employe, the late Harper Leech, at his death a financial writer on a Chicago newspaper, called my associate in New York,' Bill Hawkins, and at the risk of being court martialled, told Bill of my correction which was still being held by the Secretary of the Navy's office in Washington. Bill called Bob Bender, the then Washington manager of the United Press, who in turn got in touch with George Creel of the committee on Public information and Joe Tumulty (President Wilson's Secretary), and as a result of Bender's explanation of the situation', Tumulty wrote a note to the Secretary of the Navy's office .stating it was the desire of the President that my message of correction be released in fairness to me and to the United Press.

Answer: Under no circumstances does a reader's full name or address appear in these columns. Being fully aware of the embarrassment that might result from sucii disclosures, only pen names are used --when they are given--or the letters are presented with fictitious names or initials. Where names are given in the body of a letter, thc.-e also are changed before publication. So, in order to protect your anonymity and at the same time to be sure of identifying your problem, please, when writing, sign your letter with a pen name mot "Confused," "Puzzled," "Worried 1 or the like). Give Address U would be appreciated, however, If you would give your lull name and address with the letter. This will, under no circumstances, be published or given to anyone, but it will help considerably if 1 consider a personal reply expedient.

If he absolutely persists in, his ridiculous nutlook, you have no choice Dossal trouble. At the present time they are not controlled by legisla tion and usually unsupervised by the corporations and wageworkers enjoying them. What Is A Pension Plan? There are various forms of Pen' sion Plans and all should/ be "cus torn made" for each different corporation. Usually they provide for compulsory retirement at 65 years of age and optional retirement after thirty years of employment. Each wageworker receives a pension based upon his salary and number of years of service, less his Social Security Pension. A full pension usually averages about "$150 a month for ( wageworkers, and up to $600 a month for executives. For a new corporation without any back obligations, this is a very simple matter. Even for old corporations it is simple to care for new employees and to make current appropriations for old employees. But, when it comes to providing the money to take care of the back years of old employees, this requires heavy appropriations. To encourage corporations to adopt these Pension Systems, the Government allows (if definite rules are followed) the corporation to charge all such appropriations to EXPENSE. This means that Uncle Sam will pay about one-half of the bill. The corporation also can have the Trustee purchase some of its own stock, which may be very advantageous to all concerned. Method Of Operation The usual method of operation is to have a Committee appointed,-one member representing the stockholders, one member representing the wageworkers, and one member representing the executives. This Committee selects a lawyer to draw up the proposed Pension Plan, an Actuary to determine the annual payments (unless an insurance company is used), and a Bank to receive the funds For investment. If the Committee is wise, before any plan is adopted, it will first employ some impartial statistical organization to give independent adv,ire in the interest of all parties. Some Pension Plans arc "con tributory." in which case the waste- workers make a contribution, but in most cases the entire burden is car ried by the corporation.

Two friends were discussing a new neighbor. "I believe Mrs. Green is a great gossip", remarked one. "Yes," replied the other, "she has « kwn »«nsc of rumor." Answer: Wearing glasses will not seriously hurt your chances of acquiring boy friends, but your attitude about the spectacles might. If you are self-conscious about the glasses, and make it evident to those around you by talking about them more than is necessary, you have created a barrier against making friends. Glasses are no rarity today, and to wear them is nothing uncommon. In fact, many girls who are quick to adopt fads are wearing fancy frames with plain glass; they think it adds to their attractiveness. Select a hair-do suitable to your glasses, pick your jewelry and make-up carefully; you should then have no handicap in acquiring boy friends. Just be sure you pick them yourself; don't let friends push you into dates you don't want. Dear Mis." Dix: My problem began when a classmate and I sang a song for our class day at school.

In these cases only a few beneficiaries are involved. If the Bank then makes a mistake, only two or three children may be affected. When, however, a Bank is investing this money for 1,000 wageworkers, whose families are depending almost solely thereon in their old ace, the situation is very different. All parties involved are sitting on a keg of dynamite! Hence, the greatest care should be taken. Some Banks want to invest all the money in Government Bonds, forgetting this policy was followed by the big banks of Germanv where these Pension Plans started. As a result, the money _was entirely wiped out with a total loss to everybody. Other Banks want to buy stocks now selling at an average of $270, forgetting "that these stocks sold at only $42 in 1932 and may again. Other Banks want to buy only corporation bonds, ignoring the continual decline in the value of the Dollar, as do the Life Insurance Companies. Finally, there are Banks which follow all three policies under the "shotgun" theory. The correct procedure is for the Committee, after employing outside independent advice, to consult with the Bank about the policy, AND INFORM THE WAGEWORKERS QUARTERLY THEREON. This cannot be done by using an insurance company. Copyright, Publishers Fin. Bu. Inc.

NIAL WASHINGTON, Dec. 6--The armed forces plan a liberal leave policy for the Christmas holiday for men in the continental United States. In general the services have agreed to cut training and other activities at year-end to a minimum to allow as many as possible to take leave. The policy will be junked of course if any military emer- ;ency arises. The Air Force. Army and Navy will start their leave periods Dec. 22. Jan. 1 will be the last holiday .eave day for the Air Force and Army. The Navy says its last day with type of unit and the work done by it.

In all the services special consideration will be give;i to men leaded overseas Most of these men will be given at least 10 days, including travel time. To lessen the heavy load on busses, planes and trains, the Army and Air Force have told post and base commanders to stagger leave dates and times to fit the schedules and pace of transportation facilities. Railroads and bus companies are ow offering a special round-trip urlough rate for servicemen. To ;et the rate ticket agents will re- [uire that the servicemen be in iniform and shew a pass or leave apers. This also entitles the ser- iceman to an exemption from the Federal transportation tax. Here's the leave set-up service by service: ARMY--Training will be discontinued as far as possible between noon of Dec. 22 and the morning of Jan. 2. Activity in other units will be cut to a minimum to allow the most possible leave, varying I Years. In training centers the ' regular schedule will be continued, with Christmas and New Year's day off. Men headed overseas from Camp Pendleton, Calif., will be granted 10-day leaves between Dec. 24 and Jan. 3. For some unexplained reason, more readers than ever before have been writing me lately.
