The "four men listed are Robert Taft,- Dwltrhl Elsenhower,' Earl Warren and Harold Stassen. . T h i s Is one way of trying to fet-l the. party pulse in this section, so that the officers of the Republican party will learn the aenthncnt of the membership. If a good percentage of the Republican party members in this vicinity fill out the forms provided, the committee w i l l hnVo a. good Idea which one of the four men are favored in this locality, at least.

Two were al his request, Ihe laul wa* requested by Truman, What the president chiefly wanted, Johnson later told' friends, wan lo net Ihe veterans straightened nut politically. He figured that Johnson, a big wheel In the American Lexlon, with his law partner, Don Wilson, now national commander, able lo swing a lot ol the vets back Into Domomil rank*. But Johnson wa» quite unenthushmtic. "1 rion'l think J could very well uo'lo the veterans," he said, "with my reputation for having been fired, and expect to make « «uccesnful political appeal." The president didn't comment on this, but asked his ex-secretary of defense what he IhnuKhl of Ihe political situation. "I rion'l ihlnk Klscnhowcr will pet anywhere," Johnson told friends that he replied. "But I think he has cnnugh slrcnglh to block Tall. In the case of that deadlock 1 think M a c A r t h u r will be the ndminfin, and he is one man, Mr. Prcsi- dcnl, you can't bent." * * * yellow Republicans have been whispering behind Bob Taft's back about the way Ihe senator from Wisconsin has been pushing Ihe senator from Ohio around. W h a t they say Itf lhat Mc- Cjirlhy barked and Taft jumped the other day when he Issued his statement supporting McCarthy. For exactly three moijths, f h e Wisconsin wlldman had boon demanding such an endorsement--in fact, ever since Mr. Republican stepped on his tons last October by declaring, that McCarthy's charges had been "overstated." "I don't think anyone who overstates his case helps his own case," was what Taft told the press i.n October Vi. "The extreme attack against General Marshall is one of the things on which 1 cannot agree with McCarthy. 1 t h i n k some criticism of General Marshall wan justified, but he should not have been accused of a f f i l i a t i o n w i t h any form of Communism." This Infuriated McCarthy. Shortly thcrcaticr, he cornered Taft In the Senate and demanded a repudiation. At first, the Ohloan sidestepped. He tried to placate McCarthy by repenting In subsequent speeches; ''I don't agree with everything McCarthy jays, but we can't criticize Mc- 'Carlhy for Rtartirig the Communisls-in-govern- mcnl invejtlgotlo'n." Of coume, McCarthy didn't slart the Com- niunlHlB-ln-KOvernfnenl pn-bc at all, but jumped on the soapbox long after Alscr Illss and Will-am Remington had already been' exposed, largely by the Un-American Activities Commlt- lee and by McCarthy's fellow Hcpublican, Senator. Nixon of Illlnoln. Yet even this indirect tribute" from Taft dldn'l satisfy the Wisconsin senator. He begun ..talking tough to Taft and Ihreatenlng political reprisals. Me even boasled about it afterward, until It became common gossip In the Senate cloakrooms. Finally (he harassed Tafl knuckled down and announced on January 21: "McCarthy's invcsli- gatlon has been fully justified . . . This admin- Islrallon hat been dominated by a strange Com- munlflt sympathy," What made (his all the more h u m i l i a t i n g for Taft ,was thai II was completely one-sided. While ho innnunccd bin support of McCarthy, the senator from Wisconsin said nothing about supporting Taft. In fact, on December M, McCarthy came out for Gen. Douglas MaeArthur for president "and a younger man for vice president"--meaning, of course, McCarthy. Ironically, it was McCarthy who defcalcd ;,MacArthur ; . In . Wl.iconsln's 1048 primary by claiming 'that' MncArlhlir was "loo old" and by smearing him with Catholic voters on account of his divorce. However, the .political winds have shifted, and McCarthy is now trying to tic himself to MacArlhur's kite. Meanwhile Senator Tafl explains tn Republican colleagues privately; "Joe was threatening to come out for Slasscn in Wisconsin, and Wisconsin Is very Important lo me. Also 1 had pressure from party leaders to support McCarthy." lie Identified Ihe other party leaders as Herbert Hoover and Ocncn.l MncArlhur. Note--Though Taft indicates to friends thai he Isn't happy aboul his forced alliance with McCarthy, a March of Dimes solicitor calling on the Tafl, home Ihe other evening, discovered Senator McCarthy seated comfortably at the Taft dinner table, * + * H has now been exactly two years today since McCarthy made hl« first 'claim, In a Lincoln's birthday speech .at Wheeling, W. Va., lhat there were 208 Communists in the Stale Department. Immediately thereafter, at Salt Lake City, he changed hi.i figure lo 57 and announced lhat he would supply the names to Secretary of State Acheson on request, l.aler he tipped the figure lo HI. Mut so far McCarthy has supplied the nninc- of no one who has been proven a Communist, and Senator Tydings of Maryland still has 525,000 offer lo McCarthy on this score. The only man who has been barred from working In the State Department as a resuli nf McCarthy's charges Is John Service found by the Loyalty Board to have been Indiscreet and a poor security risk In giving Information to a newspaper. The Loyalty Board specifically stated They'll Do It Every Time -- By Jimmy Hatlo HAD, THERE WAS so Mucri roop LEFT OVER THAT THIS TIME MX CCUSrK R4WILV IS IIJ TWH OK A COrJVEWT10M,SO WE BflOUSHT THEM 00 IT EVER/ TIME-- "Thanks for the Memory" ,th;il it h;id no reason tn doubt Service's loyalty and made it clear he was no Communist. * * * Senators who praised the ruffled honesty of Harold Ickcs when he died last week will soon get a chance lo put their .sentiments into more concrete fofm. For the I.lstcry Hill resolution, carrying out Ickes' idea of putting tidolands oil revenues into a national educational fund, soon comes up for a vote. If passed, this would finally settle the red- hot 'issue of lidelands oil which has fanned the fires between Washington and the three big offshore oil states--California, Louisiana and Texas --ever since the Supreme Court awarded this oil to the federal government. W i t h schools needing funds more than ever before and universities seriously short of money, the Ickcs plan to put tidelanris oil royalties into an educational fund is getting more support. Also many senators feel it would be a just tribute to a man who did more to preserve the national do- .nain thmi anyone clso in this generation.. A r t h u r Krock, ace Washington news hawk, rated an Invitation lo a shindig at Senator Harry Byiri's Virginia manse. What's more, the Senator sent his family chariot around to give Krock a lift. Krock reports that a ferocious looking Great Dane was sprawled .across Ihe from seal, while the rear scat was loaded with a bevy of Ihe Senator's small grandchildren. After some hesitation, he decided it was safer to cast his lot with the kids in back. It was a grievous error. The car had just about gotten under way when one of the kids bit him * · * + In New York, Irwln "Troubled Air" Sluw. coming upon the script of a play he had dashed off at the age of M, discovered that he had described his heroine, Gcncvleve, in this wise- "Despilc the fact that she was nearly 30, her face still bore traces of the'beauty she enjoyed in her youth." * * * Matt Weinalnck has discovered a silver Jin-' ing In the higher cost of living. "Remember," he rarnls, "thai the same paper bag that used to hold only $5.00 worth of groceries now can hold $10.00 worthl" Questions And Answers Q--Is the mink A semi-aquatic animal?

"You must think I'm very stupid, Jennet. He means nothing, there Is nothing between'you and yet you told him you could never see him again. That isn't something you tell a total stranger." He wheeled and stood leaning down lo her, his. face a caricature, ugly with anger. "Has he kissed you?" he asked. Jennet stared at the man to whom she had been married for 10 years and she did not know him. He was * god of righteousness and she n unrepentant Magdalene and her tongue cleaved to the back of her teeth, "Answer me!" · "No," she snirl to the old man with the punishing face, "I will not answer you. 1 don't have to answer you.' 1 lie grabbed her hand and pulled her roughly to her feel. "Why- why don't you have lo? I'm your husband! I feed you and house you and clothe you, 1 give you medicine when you're sick mid worry when you're late; the flesh of your shouldrr i s sweeter to me than my mvn--how can you hate me like this when I love you so much?" He dropped her hand and turned his body iiway from her and .«poke with his head down In « low, flat voice. "Colo said Ihcie was evidence of n more personal nature. Where could he. hnvc found the check bul tn Suriuov't i room? I suppose everyone knows about Ihe affair but me. And if they didn'l before, Ihey know now." "Whal do you mean?" Jennel asked. "The meeting tonight was about Surinov. They want to lire him.' A sound of distress almost escaped her iips, and on .his nexi words turned heartlessly into nourishing breath. "Because of Ihe loyally oalh. Pclleller backed him and so did I. I spo'-e in, his defense. Cola was furious and pulled oul a pho- loslatic copy of Ihe check. I Ihoughl it was some Irick. But if it was" not, then there are only Lwo conclusions the men can draw. Either my wife is a tart or I ai Communist paying off my vouns helper." Jennet's hand went to her nouth. She began to cry and the ears ran down her hand and inally they seeped through her ingcrs. She flung herself on (Jus's jack. "Oh, my darling, what have done to you?" Down against her flung body, she felt him sliding, down, down ntil she, staring, saw him writh- i)R and gasping al her feet. She didn't know she was screaming mlil Insrid came in, running, wild n hibiscus wrapper, her braid bouncing, her eyes popping. · t · [IEFORK ailnrlM the morning after Clus Logan's ilcMh, Peter slirlnov sat, by Im-iinliim, In the ircnktasl room of the Pclleller ' ionic. · "I phoned Hafc Warner al two his morning--thnl was the flrsl nance I had to gel Ihe resulls of asl night's meeting. It happened s I expected. They voted you oul ·' a Job. Pelcr. Unanimously. I old Rafe of Cus'j passing. No one knew he hid · bad heart, nol even Cota." Dr. Pelletier sighed. His eyes were as weary as Ihe lids which almost obscured them. "Peter, Peter," he sighed, shaking his head, "what manner of man are you?" And Pel«r who had for several stunning, minutes heard himself cast in a villain's role that Included treason, adullery and vicariously aclv-ved murder, could yet wince at the doubt in his friend's question. His head jerked up as Stella Eel- letier, who, like her husband, had nol been in her bed for almost 24 hours, came through the swinging door with a platter of scrambled eggs and bacon. "Peter," she said, spooning the fluffy yellow mound onto his plate, "you're to eat some breakfast. I don't know how much Walter has told you, but we both have the utmost faith in you, and you're not for one minute to lose faith In yourself." · · · DETER did not bestir himself from the task of ncatening the sides f his egg-pile wilh Ihe lines of the :ork. Without raising his eyes 'rom his plalc. he announced in lat insulting recital, "I have not d an affair with Jennet Logan. am nol and never was a Com- mmist. So help me God." And hen, riled by the necessity for luch a speech, he leaned forward ind slapped the table, with a hand is big as a plate. "And to tell you :hc trulh, 1 don't feel in the least responsible for Dr. Logan's death. All I feel is so mad my teeth hurt, 'd like lo sink Ihcm into Cola's hroat--I'd like to claw that ugly 'nee'till it ran . . ." "Good," said Mrs. Pelleticr, the lolc of her lavender eyes belying he cheer in her voice. "Good for you. That's exactly what I hoped 'ou'd say. Now calm yourself, ctcr, and cat your eggs before hey gel stone cold. We've been hrough a lot tonight--and that xior child, Jennet, 1 ]usl hope he doesn't lose her reason. But we've been through bad times be- ore. I always say to myself while hey'rc, happening, 'This, too, will laps.' And II does. De you take ream, Peter? Don't eat ,ie fast, Vallcr, you'll gel heartburn." (I* Be C- Column ·l HAL BOTL* Tampa, ria.-(/P;-The pirate past lives again here in one of the nation's greatest festivals. · It is the Carnival of Gasparilla, - five-day holiday of fun »nd frolic inspired by the deeds and misdeeds of legendary old Jose Caspar,- the bloodiest buccaneer who ever fed an honest sailor to the sharks, The fete is Florida equivalent of the Mardi Gras. Each year it draws crowds estimated by police at 000,000 to 800,000. People drive up to 200 miles or more ti. see jt, wait up all night in parked cars in order to have a good vantage point for the parade. To tourists the celebration is a high point of the winter season. It is begun by a mock invasion of the city by ye mystic krewe of 5asparilla. They are some 330 Tampa business and social leaders dressed as' freebooters, complete with cutlasses and black eye patches. After landing yesterday, they ed a parade of 88 colorful floats, 35 bands, and thousands of marchers to the state fairgrounds. They arrived in two small vessels because the old three-masted iailing ship used in other years lad become unseaworthy. At least me bystander thought this was i mistake. "If the krewe had sailed in that »ld ship and she sank," he mused, 'there'd. have been a lot of nice obs open in Tampa tomorrow." However, the pira'es made it ashore safely with no casualties except knee brulsei and began 'firing pistols. With a stock of 50,000 blank cartridges to shoot up, they promised a noisy five days. .Tonight at a coronation ball the city's social king and queen will be crowned. Tomorrow 7,000 children w i l l march in a parade symbolizing the unity of America's 48 states. The pirate band will lead a torchlight parade Thursday through Ybor City, Tampa's Spanish section. On Saturday they board ship again and sail away ending the festival. "And a l l ' n e x t week the men will be so tired and quiet you could hear a pin drop anywhere in the city,'" one wife said. The festival, begun in 1904 and financed by a wealthy cigar manufacturer, surprised and pleased Ihe city. It has grown each year u n t i j now civic groups chip 'in some $250,000 to make it a success. "There is no purpose behind it except for everyone to have a litlle fun," said one man. That is why it is so popular. The mock celebration of his exploits must amaze the ghost of )ld Jose Caspar, if he was half :he scoundrel credited with icing. He is reputed to pave been a Spanish n.' j val lieutenant who led mutiny, formed his own pirale jand and looted and sank at least merchant vessels after forcing .heir crews to walk the plank. During a visit ashore he is said .o have slit his pretty wife's throat lecause she objectqd to one of his nisiness transactions. Dtar Miss Dlx: I'm nearly 16, and very much in love with a boy 11. He wants me to marry him, mt as I haven't finished school nd am too young anyway, I told iim no. I feel I haven't been out with enough older boys lo know whether he is the one I'd want for the rest of my life. He can't sec my side of it at all, and we have had some quite bitter arguments. However, he says he's going to wait until I'm 21, and then we'll get married. I told him not to wait because if I should meet someone I like better {although that seems impossible right now) it would leave him in a dilch, which I don't vant. I think both of us need help. J. B. S. Ansxver: If all teensters had your common sense and intelligence, divorce courts would soon be out of business (and so, probably, would I). Your letters indicate a wisdom far exceeding your age. You are completely right in your stand of postponing steady dating until you have a chance to RO out with other boys, and your boy friend should be appreciative of your good judgment. Marriage* Mill B« Sound Of course he'll be jealous, but when you do feel mature enough to settle down to life with him (as I have no doubt you will do), it will give both of you the assurance that your decision was not « .hasty one, nnd the marriage based on deliberation will be lasting. Not for you thr wail of "I married at 16 and. thought I loved my husband!" or "My husband whom I married at 16 is now tired of me and treats mr terribly!" etc., etc. These are the plaints that lead to my unalterable conviction that teen-age marriages are destined more often than not for unhappi- 'ness. By wnting until you reach 21, you'll have a chance to further ! your education, and develop! friendships that will last the rest j of your life. I doubt if it will take j that long for you to make up your mind, about your beau; probably! two or three years of dating will b« enough to prove that he's the one and only. If it should turn out ttiat he isn't, it's much better for him to find out before marriage than to wait until only divoret will resolve your problems. Dear Miss Dix: My stepdaughter, who is married and fairly well off, is forever requesting loans of her father, which of course are never repaid. " do not wish to ask her for the money as I hesitate to cause a breach in her good relationship with her father. He works so hard over the bills we have incurred; we already owe money to the bank and have now borrowed from a loan company. I think it is unfair of her. The worry is making me ill. C. F. Answer: Your stepdaughter is most u n f a i r to take money from her father when her own financial position is so much better than liis. Since speaking of the matter to her may cause friction in the family, why not try to convince her father that he is ruining your health as well as the budget by keeping you in constant worry over money? I am sure he could any number of reasons to offer- for his failure to continue loans. Dear Miss Dix: Eight years ago I married a fine pirl. We were happy for a while, had a beautiful baby girl. Then my wife began to drink and after four years of marriage, she left me to return to her mother. We we're divorced and I remarried. Now she wants to come back to me, says she is sorry for the things she did and will never repeat them. The problem is that I know now how much f love her, and will never love anyone else. Paul, Answer: if you are convinced that your happiness, And the welfare of your child, depends upon your returning to your'first wife, you could ask the second wife for a divorce. However, she may not be willing. You were in too much of a hurry to marry the sec- and time, and should really have given the matter more reflection. 1C things do work out the way you want them, and you get back to your first wife, don't ever refer to the past. Since she is determined to change, anrt make an effort to maintain a proper home, pive her full cooperation in making a completely new life together.
