Th'crc is tho purcliasu of a professional football team for Dallas, and the possible acquisition of ArKunsaB' Otis Douglas as coach for the Dallas Hungers, as the team may bh called.

According to those who have tnlkcd with the coach, it is "all or nothing" so far as a bid for conference, t h n n t p i o n s h i p is'concerned, and he seems to think there is a chance to win t h a t "all." There is the p l a n , , announced in the .sports columns of this newspaper a nifiht or two ago, to invite state hi'jfh school teams to play the annual tournament in Fayeltcville at; the University Field House. That should provide a number of hijjh iscjioo) students with an opportunity to vilit their state university, and make (juitc * hit in state high school circles generally. THis, we hope, matnrialiv.es, and tirize all who can help to get behind the project. There is the very fine basketball airtjrc- gation Conch Glenn Stokcnbcrry has turned out at ; FayeUcville liigh School, which very definitely has its eyes on the stale high school championship.

THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·r DREW PEARIOII Washington--If the K i n g committee looks into (he income-tax cn«c of Iowa's Cov. W i l l l i i m Hcardslcy, it will f i n d some Interesting buck- passing between t h e Justice D e p a r t m e n t - a n d t h e Treasury. Tho Treasury f r e q u e n t l y complains Hint ii sends t u x - f r a u d cases In justice, then Justice twiddles Its fingers, f a l l s lo prosecute. But in the case of the governor of a state, It looks as if neither wanted to prosceule. At any rate, before, the Trrnsury sent the aliened tax f r a u d of Governor Ucardsley to Justice, T-mcn phoned the Justice Department's lax division, nskcd whether Justice would prosecute a governor. Justice lawyers replied they would make no commitment, would look at the case, t h e n decide. So Treasury sent the case to Justice--"without recommendation," Justice tax attorneys, then under Lamar Caudle,'look a look, t e n t a t i v e l y decided for prosecution. Caudle agreed. Later Caudle was ousted, and the Iowa governor's case was referred to Attorney General M c G r a t h h i m s e l f . He made a q u i c k check, found Ihis was t h e f i r s t time In I I years the Treasury had sent a case to Justice ."without recommendation." So M c G r a l l ) decided he wasn't going lo be the first A. G. In I I years to be put on t h e spot. He sent the case back to the-Treasury w i t h a brief note: "What If your recommendation?" '* * * If you're the son of a general in Ihe A r m y Engineers, you can get a summer vacation in Morocco 1 --all expenses paid by the taxhaycrs. . At least that's what hapncned to the 20-year- old son of M a j . Gen. J. Stewart Bragdnn, just before he retired as d e p u t y thief of A r m y Engineers. The ::an became a MOO-per-mnnlh "inspector" on an A r m y Engineer project in French Morocco; stayed just long enough for a summer vacation. Curious fact Is I h n t young J, Stewart Bragdon. Jr., did not afmly for t h e Job. Word was passed to the contractor to h i r e h i m -- a "recommendation" from the M i l l s Company to A t l a s Conslruetors, b u i l d i n g a i r bases in French Mo- roeeo for t h e A r m y Engineers. A t l a s Construclnrs I m m e d i a t e l y took the h i n t . a n d wrote a nice l e t t e r to the general's s o n . a t the University of .Virginia. "Mr. Flalph Mills has advised us t h a t yon are interested in employment on our project- when your school term is over." f o r m a l l y wrote I... W. finroat. Alias personnel director. "I would appreclfllc your a d v i s i n g me of your a v a i l a b i l i - ty date and would like idso a resume of the work you hnvc done In (He past In order l h a t 1 can best place you In Our organization." However, the general's son bad no pusl construction experience. So t h e company simply labeled him "inspector," put h i m on the payroll at $400 per m o n t h , b e g i n n i n g J u n e 17 w i t h t r a n s p o r t a t i o n , meals en route and medical expenses paid by Uncle Sam via the company. Part of young Bragdon's salary xvas withheld to pny his fare home. Sure enough, just, before the f a l l school term. Bracdnn q u i t and was flown home. However, the full a m o u n t of the p l a n e ticket hadn't been deducted from his pay, so Alias wns forced to make tip the difference. As a result, Hracdon still owes Atlas--and the t a x payers-- $17(1. US. It's a ehcap way to finance an overseas t r i p .

However, here · Is what they said at a p r i v a t e session of the Senate I n t e r i o r Committee: 1. Sen. Jim Murray, M o n t a n a Democrat, wanted to k n o w w h e t h e r senators could claim a share In I n d i a n oil rights by beins adopted into the tribe. 2. Sen. C l i n t Anderson, New Mexico Demo- c r a t , sharply criticized the I n t e r i o r Department for giving away oil leases by d r a w i n g names o^it of a hat. The oil ouesflon was raised by Montana's meek. GOP Sen. 7.ales F.ctnn. wlm observed: "As you k n o w , we discovered oil in M o n t a n a rind it is on I n d i a n lands \m there, nnd Senator Murray nnd I have been besieged by the I n d i a n s on 'everv h a n d to get thesfc leases out and jarred Hit! M u r r a v seemed more interested in whether senators ndonted I n t o an I n d i a n tribe as a p o l i t i r a l s t u n t might be eligible for some of l''0 Indians' oil. "I wonder." mused Murrav. "If Ibis c o m m i t - te'e would have anv jurisdiction over this rntes- llon or whether or not It is nropcr for us to be adopted Inlo Ihe I n d i a n tribes tip there and · becoinf e l l f ' ^ i e for some rights in connection w i t h Ihis oil?" "You w a n t to he adopted there?" asked C b f ^ t a n .Inn O ' M a h n n e v . W v o m i n c Democrat. "We have already been adopted." explained Mun-ay. "Senator, T don't believe thev discovered oil since yon and I have been ··'donled in those nnr- licular tribes." suggested Kt'ton. And the subject xvas dropped. New Mexico's Senator Anderson then broke in w i t h his complaint about the oil-lease lottery. "May I jusl burst out here now and say I t h i n k Ihe d r a w i n g they had al Santa Fc was the must disgraceful t h i n g t h a t tile D e p a r t m e n t of I n t e r i o r has conducted for a long lime," he protested.

"One f i l l i n j ' - F t | ) t i o n operator "t Sjmta Fe drew two numbers out of the h;il for leases." added Anderson. "StnniEcly, tho men knew in advance t h a t they wcrft the flood pieces of ground, and this fillinK-Fi.1 linn operator has two $20,000 leases just by h n v i n n tiio numbers picked out of the hat. I t h i n k t h a t is going pretty far." The New Mexico senator demanded t h a t the I n t e r i o r I l c p a r l m e n t "he required to come up here and t e l l us whether t h i s is a modern, progressive way of h a n d l i n g nil." "J t h i n k , " he snorted, "if they did t t i e same t i l i n g for t h e I n d i a n s in M o n t a n a , it would be terrible." C h a i r m a n O'Ma honey promptly aprcod t h a t he "wuiild bo disposed to call upon the Interior D e p a r t m e n t to come up and report to us both w i t h respect to the h a n d l i n g of these new I n d i a n lands and the system mentioned by Senator Anderson." . .

WfATCHING the careful, whrtw k n u c k l i n g fingers, she remembered the clumsy handling of table silver last night. And then again, the sure easy touch on the ukulele. A contradictory man, not easily typed. She looked at his face, free to observe it since his eyes were on the syringe, and she wondered that at first sight sht could have thought it dull. There was a%ian's strength in his face, a ruggcdness compounded not only of bones and the imperishably firm skin of youth but also-or was she imputing?--of character. The eyes, deeply Implanted, were dark gray--soft now as water-wells. The nose was large but flesh!ess, the mouth f u l l andl taut. No, not ugly, and disturbingly, not dull. Perhaps, she reasoned, he was clumsy only when he wns shy. She reached for a syringe in the rack behind the bricks and he grabbed her hand. "Don't touch a n y t h i n g on that table! It's contaminated area!" C U E drew her hand away as from ^ fire. "Well, you picked up the syringe!" "From the other side.

The question would not be so hard to answer it agreement were a matter of Britain accepting our views, or vice ver«i. But the great fact is t h a t on the deep and d i f f i c u l t problems of he Far .East and the Middle East neither of the two Em'c rnmc rU s las views ( h a t are clear enough lo be brought 'into agreement. These deep and d i f f i c u l t problems are not those which are posed by direct, overt, naked, organized military intervention, as n Korea. There has been no srcnl d i f / i c u l t y in reaching agreement to resist t h a t obvious kind of thing. !f there is a truce in Korea, if :hen the Chinese t a k e part in an nvasion of South Korea, there will, of course, be prompt and -revere retaliation. Likewise, if Chinese armies march across the rentier of Indo-Chinn and attack he French and Vict-Mamese, then Britain and America will, of course, retaliate promptly and severely. But while it is necessary and mportant to know what we would lu if there is an overt aggression, he perplexing problems of Ihe r ar East and of the Middle East are those in which (here is no overt aggression. Korea is the exceptional and not the typical case. There is no overt aggression-n o t h i n g that has yet happened which calls for collective action iy the U. N.--in Indo-China, Ma- aya. Burma, I r a n . F.^ypt a n d Tunisia. Yet the problems of the estern powers in those coun- ries are enormously d i f f i c u l t and dangerous. It is important to k n o w what wu would do if there were overt Chinese or Kussian intervention in any of them. But what we need o know now, from dny to day, s what to do if there is no intervention but the troubles mount. The real issue.-: which the French, he British and we ourselves have face in these regions cannot be dealt with alone by m i l i t a r y dcc- arations as to what we sliall do f something, w h i c h has not t a k e n Jlacc, should t a k e place. We need be m i l i t a r y declaral'ons. But we nust not then deceive ourselves nlo t h i n k i n s t h a t these declara- 'ons and pledges solve the main problem. I f the roof of the house is fall- c in, it will not solve t h e prob- cr.i of how to go on l i v i n g in t h a t louse to put a n o t h e r lock on t h e Vont door. It may be, of course, hat Ihe Chinese and the Tiussians ntcnd to repeat the Korean a f f a i r all a r o u n d the periphery of the Communist orbit. But it is at least as likely l h a t they have learned the lessons of t h a t experiment, n n d t h a i they will not do the ines fnr which we are now best ireparcd, which would now most surely mobilize the whole n o n Communist world against them. What we are least prepared for is the kind of thing we are sec- ing In I r a n , in Egypt, in Tunisia - in another form in Burma, Indo- C h i n a and M a l a y a . Were there an armistice in Korea, we should be seeing it there. It is the breakdown of the existing a u t h o r i t y which then prccipifatcs a confused and probably a long struggle in each country, and by rival outside powers, to determine the succession. Almost certainly then can be no such thing as a "solution" for what is in fact an imme'nse historical process. To expect to have a "solution" for all these countries is rather like it would have been five centuries ago to ask whether the Pope or Emperor had the better' solution for the passage of Europe from the Middle Ages inlo the Modern Age. That.does not mean that we can do nothing. It docs mean that if we see the problem in lhat w a y , we shall understand that the very essence of all policy must be t h e u n d e r s t a n d i n g t h a t we no longer d o m i n a t e and that we cannot command the course of events. Our military power, which is indispensable for dealing with the military power of the Soviet Union, is altogether a secondary instrument in our actions in these countries. We must not expect to accomplish much by m i l i t a r y power. That would be like expecting the strategic air force to deal effectively w i t h reckless driving and child delinquency in our cities. Nor as a matter ot fact can the course of events' be governed by subsidies given to those who (nost convincingly proclaim their preference for us as against the Communists. There was a time when this country had much greater prestige and influence among all these peoples than it has today. That was when we were asking nothing of them but t h a t which they wanted for themselcs. I know well that great powers cannot expect to be loved everywhere and that they arc bound lo be distrusted and widely disliked. Yet despite all t h a t , and though our position and theirs have changed greatly, the old American attitude is still Ihe true, and for the long run tho only effective f o u n d a t i o n s ot a policy. The essence of it is not lo (real these peoples as the instrument of an American policy, as pawns in Ihe strategic policy of m i l i t a r y conlainmcnl. That will nol work. Thai is w h a t is not w o r k i n g now. That is the m a i n cause of the immense Asian feeling against us. '-"he people there believe--a n d those who can read or listen tn what is so commonly said in Congress and elsewhere find m u c h to support t h e m -- t h a i we t h i n k of (hem as a means to our ends- noble ends, no doubt, but still our ends. Only the other day a l e a d i n g newspaper tried to help Mr Churchill by explaining to its readers the q u a n t i t a t i v e a d v a n - tages lo America of the British Isles. That would once have been recognized as a most u n - A m e r i c a n way lo t a l k about other peoples, and Americans would have regarded it as an immoral way to t h i n k about them. We shall do well to e x a m i n e ourselves. For in dealing w i t h the peoples of Asia and Africa who are just achieving- independence, the first t h i n g to realize is l h a t by independence they understand primarily nol merely universal s u f f r a g e or even a better standard of life but above all a new personal self-respect. If we forget t h a t , t h e policies we make for those regions are sure to be disastrously ineffective.
