THE WASHINGTON Merry -Go -Round ·y DREW Washington-- Only two people kn*w exactly what happened during the 30 minutes when President Trumun and the' man who m;iy tako over Ihf leadership of Ihe Democratic party-Kefauver ot Tenn«f»e-- met together at Ilia While; Home. However, part of what they rsH has become Known to intimate*, and here It ,1 brief Mimmary of whit happened. What Senator Krfauver rllrl not know was I h n t cnngrpMlnnnl frlrndr, of Speaker Sam Jlny- hiirn, who not only want Kain to run for president hut are jenloti* of their old Tenm-ware col- lr««ue In Ihe House ol Representatives, had c a r e f u l l y arranged to plant some anli-Kcfauvor poison with Mr. Truman. They had Congressman M i k e K l r w a n , of Ynunsfitown, Ohio, OIK- of ihr most astute Democrats on Capitol Hill, call tin the president .hist a few minute.', before the K r f a u v e r appointment for the purpose of prejudicing the president. Regardlei'S of wh»t Kirwsn may have told Truman, II had no outward effect. For. when the tall senator from Tennessee, entered. Ihe president war. most cordial. K e f a u v e r was just as modest as Truman was gitnial. Prohahly he. tlld not know about the strategy to prejudice Ihe president, but, If lie hatl known, his ?tralor,.v could not have been lintler. In his u t u a l slow Tennessrp drawl, K e f n u v e r recalled that he bad always supported the Truman program, had Kone down the lln« on a lot of controversial problems, even coin? further than anv other Southern senator on civil rights. *· * * The prtsWent acknowlH»etl Ihat Kelauver's record was gnort. Ihnuch they had disagreed on i few Issues. The Tennesser senator then came to the point-- he win belns urged to run for the nemocratic nomlnallon and, In justice to his friends, he would have to make a,publlc stalc- mt"t fiilrly loon. Th»re(or». he saW. he would lik« to have the. prei-'lilpnt * advice. From this point oh. Mr. Truman did most of the talking. He said t h a t the Democratic party needed new blood and he welcomed "young Democrat*" Into national politic*. Ills a t t i t u d e w«« frlenejly. almost fatherly. He thanked Ke- f»uver for his candor. *· * · The pefiator explained d u r i n g their conversation that he fared the deadline of February 6 In Ohio, where his supporters' wanted lo enter his name In the Democratic primary. Personal Tellers from K c f a u v r r mithnminff primary delegates to support him arc now in the bonds of Timothy Hosan, Cincinnati Democratic leader, but Hogan has been Instructed by Kc- fiuver not to make public these letters before F«brii»r.wl. "As the leader of our parly, you have every right to know about my plans, Mr. President." declared the crlme-bustlnf! senator, explaining that, despite newspaper speculation, tills was the flnt time he had flatly slated his Intentions outside his own fimlly. In brief, Kefauvp.r clearly indicated t h a t hn would run. At no lime, however, did the president tip off his own poHlcal plnns, and Kefauver did not press him. As the meeting closed, the president stressed the point: "There w i l l be no differences between U5 . . . Whatever you do will be with my undor- Ktaurllng." In other words. Truman tlld not civc Kefauver his blessing, but did say he would "understand." . * ,*.. * The A r m y . carted « wooden box to Capitol Hill ln.lt week and carefully unveiled it behind the cl5p»el doors of the congressional Atomic Energy Committee. Inside was a small-scale, model of a giant atomic howitzer Capable of firing atomic artillery shells. The actual gun It so large Ihat It must he hauled by tniin. Rackslagc behvncn the Army and Air Force a hot battle has been brewing over the use of atomic artillery antl baby A-bomhs. A c t u a l l y , the smaller an atomic bomb is, Ihr more fissionable material it requires and the more it costs lo produce. Tho.reforo the Air Force argues that our stockpile of atomic bombs isn't large enough to permit us to wastt fissionable material on small A-bombs and arlllterv shells. Instead, the Air Force ftrpuos t h a t one of its bombers can deliver an A-bomb anywhere that atomic artillery can fire. II also argues t h a t the risk of keeping atomic artillery close to the front is too great. The Army replies t h a t small atomic missiles are easier lo deliver ami that atomic artillery has an lidded morale value. So far, the Army has been winning out. C,. Y. Hladensburg.

This was "commercial blood" sold lo Sharpc and Dohme. a pharmace.utical house, by professional donors who were paid hy the drus firm.

Twenty Years A|t» Today (Fayettevillt Daily Democrat, January 21, 1332) A letter requesting Star Route service bp- tween Fayetteville and Fort Smith was sent to the superintendent of railway mail service in Fort Worth by the assistant postmaster of Fay- ptteville. It was decided yesterday, after a conference with the postmaster, to ask for mail service leaving Fayctlcville about 9 p. m. and going to Fnrt Smith and leaving Fort Smith at about 5 a. m. for Ffiyettevillft. The two Frisco trains going off this part of their road was the cause of the action. At least 100 Fayettevil1« people saw Maude Adams and Otis Skinner in "The Merchant of Venice" at the Joie theatre at Fort Smith last night, it is estimated. Others from here would have gone had not the management announced on the telephone that all good seats had been sold. Ten Yearn Airn Today (Northwest Arkansas Times, January 21, 1942) Dairymen serving Fayetteville agreed upon a plan at a meeting in the city administration building last night whereby deliveries n the future will be made on every other day.

"I h«vc dwelt today repeatedly," he said at the end, "upon many of the changes that have happened throughout the world since you last invited me to address you," and .what he had come lo argue, what he had come to plead for, was that despite Ihe changes which have affected profoundly both Britain and America, Iheir "worklris together" and their will to "tread the same path" should remain unchanged. Mr. Churchill could not, or at least he did not, talk plainly about how Britain and America have changed, and how their relations hnvc changed, and what great measures of statesmanship will he necessary to recreate the habit of working together. It may be. Ihat the time for that kind of speaking will. not come until more has happened and events have made things plainer, and many illusions have been dispelled. Hut Mr. Churchill did not fail to say just enough to let those who come later know that he had seen clearly even when he was not able lo talk quite plainly. * * t The cKiy before Mr. Churchill spoke, the president sent to Congress his economic report. It tells the astounding story of the undertaking which we nro now successfully engaged. This is the program which is so inadequately described by the. world "rearmament." For the distinguishing fact about the whole thing is not the size of the armed forces that we are training and equipping now. H is that we are expanding greatly the basic American economy, he it for war or for peace, Ihat we are making immense capital investments in steel, aluminum, chemicals, petroleum, aircraft, electricity, fertilizers, and the production of minerals. What is-happening is that the productive power ot the United States is being enlarged at a rale at which only an already most produclive economy could t enlarge ilself. This expanding productive power is supporting on (lie one hand a very great military establishment and on the other a civilian standard of consumption which is higher than any that even this country has ever enjoyed. The austerity and the "pinches" which we are threatened with at the end of this year and into 1953 are austerity and pinches only by our own recent and fabulous standards of civilian consumption. * * * The president's economic report speaks also of the Western European countries, which, ot course, includes Great Britain. It says "the Western European countries can shoulder only part of their heavier defense outlays through increased productivity In addition, cuts must be made in Ihcir domestic consumption, which only recently has been restored to the pre-war levels, and in capital investments, which is needed to build long-run economic ttrtnilh." The contrast between the American economy, which is expanding, and the European economy, which is arrested by re- Armament, between Hie American standard of life, which is at a record level, and the European which must be cut below pre-war levels, is one of the great historic facts of the modern world and nothing of our relations with the rest of our alliance is intelligible if we' do not understand it. It is against this background of fact that Mr. Churchill told the Congress "it is for you to judge to what extent the United States' interests are involved." He then_ went on to say immediate!}' "our contributions will, perforce, be limited by our own physical resources." Mr. Churchill did not_ labor the point. But what he had" said was that the military commitments of the Labor government could not be fulfilled without American aid. The civilian needs of Britain could b« met and were met without our subsidy. Britain was recovering from the burdens- of the war until "the formidable problem of the new rearmament has fallen upon us." The civilian problem was a British problem.- But this new rearmament had become "perforce" an t American problem. · · · The other big subject of the speech was the Far East, and there it is, I think, fair, to say that Mr. Chur-* chill adopted the bedside manner of a doctor dealing- with an excitable and irritable patient. He said everything he could think to' say which w o u l d . be soothing, without in fact speaking untruthfully or renouncing the British, which in its main tenets is the general Asian, view of the Far Eastern situation. There will not be a lot more to be said, however, when we know whether in fact, as Mr. Vishinsky declared in Paris, there is at present no hope of concluding a Korean truce. The assurance that Mr. Churchill gave to Congress about British support "if the truce we seek is reached only to be broken" does not deal with what may be the real and the much more difficult question. "What is to be the Anglo-American policy , in Korea if there is no truce? It could well be that though there will be no formal truce to be broken, there, will be large scale _ military action from the Korean' and Chinese side. What are we then going to tell General Ridgway to do? · · » Nor can we overlook the effect of a failure, to make a truce in Korea upon the pending Japanese treaty. That treaty Is based on the assumption that the Korean war will have ended when the treaty goes into effect. For obviously the United States cannot wage war from Japanese territory. · and at the same time restore the cngjged in that war. Without a engaged in that war. Wituout a Korean truce the Japanese treaty.' even though it is ratified, cannot in fact be implemented. That may well be one of several reasons why the Soviet has intervened openly at Paris in the Korean a f f a i r . Dear Miss Dix: T have gone with a boy for two years. No,t lung ago one of his IPKS became paralyzed. Now he says 1 don't love him and am continually arguing with him. low can I bring bark his love? Mary L. Answer: Before you worry too much about your friend's attitude, low about your own? Are you really still in love with him. and ready to face the future with a full realization of what his handicap will mean? If you have any doubts about your own feelings for ths boy, It's better to break with him now. If, however, you him, patience alone will win him him. patience alone wil Iwin him for you* He feels now that the only emotion people can feel for him is pity; you must convince him otherwise, with such methods as you alone, with a deep knowledge of his personality and character, can figure out.
