His latest move is an attack -on a root of American etrehglh written into the ' Constitution Itnelf--freedom of the press.' .··'..' The.senator doesn't Ifke what Time magazine said about him. He complained to the editor, and that ifc his right. But hoyp lie threatens to persuade Time's sd- vettfi'crs'that they'ought to cancel their eoritrtictii in protest, a course he.has pur-. lUed^against a radio station and certain newspapers in Wisconsin. ' ' · .The senator must know that in responsible publications news and editorial comment are not ruled by the business office, but by the editors. Advertising' space Is not fe6uRht as a reward for articles attacking or, defending this polity or-that politician',' It is bought because the publication ajmiriands the attention of people busi- iWSMrrien want to reach. Advertisers don't want to act as censors of editorial policy. They know that the magazine then would dry up and with it the readers and the market.

THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round By DREW KAMOM n-- it isn't pleasant to contemplate, but the Inescapable fact Is that Russia is not only outproducing us In plants, but In building up a reservoir of battle-tested pilots to fly them. The blunt fact it the Kremlin Is using Korea us a graduate school to train Russian pilots ho* to fly against American plane*. Rotating "classes" of Russian pilots have bffrt manning the MIG's over Korea and learning American combat techniques Jirathnnd. The present class showed up in Korea on November I, Is now about ready to graduate. Each class takes the same prescribed course. The first month Is- spent making navigational flights across Korea. The second month is spent observing American formations at a snfc 'distance. During this period, - t h e MIG's will occasionally make a pass at a bomber formation, but It Is all in practice. They never fire a shot, The MIG's alco take care to keep out of the way of Air Force F-8« Sabrcjets during their brcaklng- in period. rjy the third month, however, the Soviet student-pilots begin to tangle with American fighters-- preferably with slower F-80 Shooting Stars and F-B4 Thunderjets. As the Russians gain experience, they, mix It up with our crack F-Bft squads. Tho result Is that the green Russians arc shot out of (he skies al the rale of 13 to our one. But the survivors become tough, skillful pilots, bap- tircd by fire and able to hold their own against our best. Note -- In contrast, we send only our crack pilots to Korea, give our new pilots no battle training. Reason Is that we are so short of F-86's that we cannot risk letting greenhorns fly them in combat, · * w * A lot of schools all over the country are taking advantage of the arrangement whereby the school children of America can broadcast via the Voice of America to school children behind the Iron Curtain. Many newspapers are also cooperating. , . In Charleston, W. Va., the Gazelle is running a four-week contest among high-school children for ; the best "messages to Moscow." The winner of each week's contest will be annoiftccd. and ·t the'cnd of the month the final winner' will be given a trip to New York M visit the UnltedoNa- tions and broadcast personally over the Voice of America. ' ' The Los Angeles News and the Wlchlla Kagle arc cooperating with California and Kansas schools in running similar contests. The messages should not be over 150 words, should tell about Conditions in American schools, and how the youngsters of this country want peace and resent the artificial barrier to frlend- uhlp Imposed by the Kremlin. Since th'r youngsters of today will have to carry out the American foreign policy of tomorrow, this is an oppor- , tunlty for them to hcip mould that foreign policy now. * * + For Ihe first time In years, » Senate committee will defy the unwritten code of Congress and question congressmen. Specifically, Arnold Bauman of the Snnatc I). C. Crlmf Committee wants to know why certain congressmen have been so chummy with Racketeer Frankle Costcllo's Washington lobbyist, Murray Olf. . · · T-men have actually traced long-distance phone calls to Olf from Costello's partner.

Franco himself took the Initiative In this decision and backed Artajo as his official successor. Until recently, the 64-year-old "strong man" cherished dreams of a personal dynasty. He hoped his daughter Carmen, an only child, married last year to the Marquess de VlliaVcrdc, would present him with a grandson, in which crso he planned to keep the dictatorship in the' Franco family. Her first-born, however? was a girl, its all the children In her maternal line of descent have been for five generations. Franco is now convinced that the tradition will continue. Tired after 13 years as chief of state, therefore, and suffering from diabetes, the, man who, with a decisive assist from Hitler and Mussolini, overthrow the Spanish republic, now wants to make sure there Is no chance of a comeback for democracy.

Franco has often he believes the monarchy should be restored in Spain, but feels that present members 'of the Bourbon family, ousted from the,throne in 1931, all are "weak" and eventually would give way to a new republic. The generalissimo's one big ambition now is lo get his,, government accepted by the United Nations and, It possible, by NATO. He thinks he can achieve at least the first of these aims w i t h i n another two years; then he wants to step down triumphantly, perhaps on the 15th anniversary of his entrance into Madrid at the end of the civil war. Despite the apparently unanimous support for Artajo, actually hij choice has stirred undercover jealousy in Flanglst ranks, plus serious | discontent among Monarchists who backed Franco on the assumption that some day he would bring back the royal family. * * * Following the Massachusetts Medical Association's protest to President Truman against Dr. Waller P. Schrclhcr, now stationed at Randolph Field wllh the Air Force, Dr. Schreiber has issued t h e statement that he has a six-month con-, tract with the Air Force, and intends to go back to Germany upon the expiration of the agreement. He denied that he was guilty of being associated w i l h \vartimc experiments on h u m a n beings in Na?.i concentration camps, as charged in evidence before the Nuremberg war crimes trial. , Questions And Answers Q--How did the amethyst get its name? A--The word amethyst is a shortened form of the Greek amcthyslos, which means a remedy for drunkenness. The amethyst is supposed to have this power. Thlrtr Yean Ago Todir (Fayettevill'e Dally Democrat, February 15, J922) A large attendance marked the second fashion show and telephone demonstration held at the C.' C. Yarrlngton Company's store this afternoon and more than 300 attended Ihe show and demonstration yesterday. Spring models were shown, amusing telephone demonstrations showing switchboard connections and disconnections and how mistakes occur were made and refreshments were served. The cooperation of every business man in Fayetteville and as many, individuals and organizations as can be interesled is to be sought by the White Way Committee of the Chamber of Commerce appointed at a meeting of the Chamber last evening to perfect the electric white way to be erected from the public square to the University Campus before the Semi-Centennial. Twenty Years Ago TW»T (Faycttevlllc Daily Democrat, February 15, 1932) An ordinance amendment which would in substance have repealed the new city discrimination against snooker in favor of other public hall games of skill which would have legalized operation of the Grccnlce parlor was voted down four to three by the city council last night. Delegates to the Arkansas Water Works conference which began at the University of Arkansas college of engineering hall this morning and will continue through Friday, were welcomed to Fayetteville by the University president, at noon luncheon today. Ten Yean Ago Today (Northwest Arkansas Times. February 15, 1942) Two veterans of World War I were on hand to be the first men to register under the Selective Service Act when the Fayetteville registration booths opened at 7 o'clock this morning at the Faycltcville high gym and at the National Guard Armory.

Every day except Saturdays and Sundays for five months she had waited in this room.

She was regaining the lost' weight, eating well and enjoying her food. She slept i great deal -- often 14 hours a night -- but her need for sleep was tapering off and she had ceased cat-napping during the day. She shopped, she took long walks up White- oaks into the hills. And she continued to refuse to see Peter. By her act of suicide, she had given vent at last to both the desire for crime and the egoistical demand for punishment. Afterwards, she had pronounced herielf dishonorably discharged from the battle to be good,' freed from the struggle. by having lost it, and it was only recent). , in the laai month or so, that she was beginning, with the doctor's help, to redefine her "goods."

But one couldn't stay angry at the psychiatrist long 1 without feeling a fool. After all, he probably objected to being phoned during the hour as much ai she' did.

That is its term for crewmen of the ncv/ 600-mile-an-hbur B-47 jet bomber. They are the elite aii'inen of the present day. A conventional B-29 bomber has a crew of 11. The big" new jets ire slightly larscr ;han a B-29 but li.-ive only three crew members. Each of them Is a four-way specialist, able to act as pilot, bombardier, radar operator or naviga-. tor. In the ftitire country there are fewer than 104 of these men. It is the job of bluff Col.'Mike McCoy, 48, to train more. A veteran of 18,00(1 hours in the air himself, he was the first officer In his j to watch a few landings. The 306th Bombardment Wing to be cheeked out in a B-47, a plane he calls "the new star of the air show." The jet bombers fly at 40,000 feet, cost $3,500,000 each, and are designed to replace the lumber- B-29 of World War II fame. They are coming' slowly off the assembly lines. But it is easier to build them than to train the men to fly them. "It. takes about 24 months to :urn out a combat ready crew," iid McCoy. And the. students in his pilot school here- aren't exactly school- joys. Each must have at least 2,000 hours in the air to qualify a candidate. Most are veteran combat pilots of the last war. "Everybody in the Air Force wants to get into the program," said Ihe colonel. "But we have to e exceptionally careful in picking them, b6cause of the time and money spent in training them. We can't afford any cowards." The fledgling" jet bomber pilots are a serious, hard-working lot. None wants to flunk out of this school. They have a gym, steam lath and massage rooms to keep hem in peak physical condition. Gelum* Bf ML aOTU tired sfttr long flight! «t high altitude," explained McCty. "Sometimes they have troubl* ilctping. The stum baths 'and musifei help them relax and map b«ck to noimal so th»y can fly again the next day. They havt to keep in shape." Typical of th« new jet bomber men is Maj. Ted Silva, who soon will complete hit training. The major, 32, piloted t B-17 on 98 combat missionc In Europe. Aiked why he volunteered for the jet bombers, he Hid: "Because they're new. I suppose the reason anybody joes into the Air Force is because he likei to do new things." 1 went out with Ted on the field bombers are desperately precious today because there are 80'few, and they are handled as if they were big delicate glass eggs. One after another they skimmed down as gracefully as gulls, for all their bulk. Soon after they touched ground, a tail chute shot out, opened and slowed them to a halt. "The chutes save wear and tear i the brakes and tires," Ted explained. "Without them they might uurn out a set of tires in a single landing. The pilot has to.put that chute in place himself before eich takeoff. If it doesn't work, he's io blame." Nont of these highly skilled jet pioneers who have survived one war knows what the future holds. But they are awire that even now the B-47- would be mighty useful in Korea, where the slower B-29s no longer can_make daylight missions in the face of enemy jet fighter strength: The men in training here naturally don't talk about future aiiign- mcnts. But as Colonel McCoy lays: We will be the first combat- ready outfit." Under peaceful Florid* ikies America's deadly new j»t bombir Is learning to do its job. Dear Miss Dix: My father died wo years ago and left me quite a bit of cash, securities and property. I had been married a^year it that time and was doing private duty nursing while my husband inished college. The estate, when settled, gave me quite a bit of pending monej---so we spent! I have-now settled down (with wo children), my husband is out if school and has a good job but le wants to continue spending mv ncome and I want to live on what he makes, saving what I get for our children. We want a big fam- ly and it takes a lot of money to Jut youngsters through school. With my money, we recently purchased fl nice house, furniture and a car. Now my husband wants a ligge'r car. Doesn't want to gb nto debt, or take out a loan for t, but to get it from "my" money, brags about the fact that we paid) cash for our house and don't owe a thing--as if he did it all. feel lucky--almost humble- -that ve don't have the. usual financial worries that beset most young couples. How can I make my husband stop bragging about how much money we have to spend, and how can I convince him that we should live on his income? Ellen B. . Answer: You are indeed fortunate to be in such fine financial shape, but there is altogether too much "my" money in your life. Marriage' is a partnership, remember. Since you are apparently able to pay for luxuries that the [amily woulcta't have without your income, either buy them fracefully or not at all. If your msband's income is not' sufficient to cover these items, it is your good fortune thit makes them" possible. Mike Specif!* PUn You should both come to a definite arringemcnt, however, as to how much of your money should go into the family's living expenses, .and how much should be salted away for the future, the amount to' be determined by a mutual budget conference, and scrupulously adhered to. Your husband should be'told that bragging about money, or for that matter, even discussing it outside the family circle, is extremely bad form. If he wants his manners to fit in with his secure financial position, this is one habit he should most assuredly eschew. It Is very evident that the apparently fortunate prosperity in your family will, unless very intelligently handled, result in considerable discord in the near future. In order to put the matter on a more congenial b^is, I suggest an interview between you and your husband and your loeal banker. He can best recommend a budget that will take care of current expenses, luxury buying and future security.
