A 'lot of parnstflking work by .officials /went into securing the conviction of these 'men,' and many thousands of dollars of the people's money WHO spent on court, expenses. Yet, the prisoners are released within a few years without any acknowledgement to law enforcement officers in their'home counties; certainly without the consent or advice of these elected officials who represent the people. -.There hi something wrong in this system, and it ought to be corrected.

Merry-Go* Round ·T DREW PEARIOM Wi»hin|lon--Thoufh the King committee problnf tax finagling has made a hcullhy contrl- ' butlon toward cleaning up corruption, the fact remains that the best liii.ui-a.ncc a ron- frectlonal Invettioatlon in to grt elected lo Congress. Though congressmen are quick to accuse others of whitewashing, the t r u t h is t h a t Con- fresc itself is the most.exclusive protective asso- . elation In the world, if you belong to Congress you don't get Investigated. JJiirtliermoro, it convicted of crime, you can^continuo to sit in Con- gress--«» witness Congressman Brchm ot Ohio-and keep your son on the payf'oll. Here are some examples of how Congress has adopted « double morality standard for congressmen. 1. The Senate IMS criticized RFC officials (or taking so much as a 12-pound ham, but has blissfully overlooked the free airplane rides that Sen. Owen Brewsler, Maine Republican, accepted from Pan American Airways at the same time he was sponsoring legislation to bcnefil 'Pan American, 2. Congressman Cecil King, California Democrat, who has been Investigating others for influencing tax cases, mnrie a gesture of investigating himself for the same offense. But while- the charger, against high government officials were made In public, the charges against King were heard In private. Finally, after three days of secret, w h i r l w i n d hearings, King's committee Issued a public statement whitewashing King. * * » This column, however, published the secret hearings which explored in the moat superficial, 'splt-ftnd-polish manner t h e ' charge that King had Interfered In the tax Investigation of Tom Gregory, president of the L'oiig Beach Federal favlngs and Loan. This column, continuing whrrr the King committee left o f f , then discovered that King had personally pressured the Justice Department to settle .all Gregory's troubles with the government. King's proposed settlement automatically would hive ended Ihe tux Investigation, ordered In 194» by then Attorney General Tnm Clark. 3. One of the most sensational facts that came out of the tax hearings was that Sen. Styles Hrldges, (taw Hampshire Republican, and mys- tery-m»n Henry firunewald bnth made representations at the Internal Revenue Bureau In behalf of Hyman' Klein, a Baltimore liquor dealer. Klein *m up to his ears in about $7,000.000 worth of tax trouble. Yet the K i n g committee glossed over the embarrassing testimony abnut Senator Bridges, and has made no move to put him on the witness stand like the others. Meanwhile, it still hasn't been explained what a New Hampshire senator was doing Intervening in the case ot a M a r y - lander, nor why Bridges made a Senate speech proposing a salary Increase for Charley Oliphant, who had hecn asked to fix the Klein case. 4. Last June,'this column revealed how Congressman Frank.- Boykliv Alabama Democrat,^ got a $459,798 RFC loan for the Stiitts Lumber" Company of Thomasvlllc.-Ala., which happened to be buying timber from Bnykln and which used $300,000 of the RFC money to pay off an overdraft it a local bank. Boykln also wangled a S750.000 RFC loan for th Mobile Paper Company, after which he find his four children showed up with a - l a r c c chunk of stock In the same company. In a public show of Innocence, Boykin Invited the Senate Bunking Committee to investigate him. This investigation was turned over to Senator Hoey's Senate Investigating Committee by Senator Ful- brlghl of Arkansas, in n letter dated September 12. "We were unable to complete- our invcsllga- tlons prior to the expiration of nur special authority, the exhaustion of our funds, the dismissal of our s t a f f and the conclusion of our study," wrote Fulbright to Senator lloey ot North Carolina. "Accompanying this letter nre Ihc subcommittee file and the DFC files on the Stutls Lumber Company and ,lhc ; Stone Container Company (successor to the Mobile Paper Mill Company)," added Fulbright. Fulbright olso reported in the confident ial letter t h a t "the FR1 has also taken an interest In both these cases, and its representative, Mr. Harold Hair, has had the use of both the RFC subcommittee file and the RFC flics." Yet Senator Hoey and the Senate Invesligiit- jng Committee have failed lo follow up, have shown a notable lack of Interest In Congressman Boykin. 5. The House has demanded the resignation nf internal revenue collectors, but has refused lo expel one of its own members, Congressman Walter Bi'chm, Ohio Republican, who has been convicted of taking kickbacks. There appears lo be an u n w r i t t e n agreement that congressmen won't Investigate each oth- cr - * * .* ll-pays-lo-have-conncctions -- Hugh Fulton, former chief counsel of the Senate Truman Committee, which boosted the president into the White House, has been doing ail right lately. So has Fulton's law partner, Rudolph Hallcy. who jumped from the Kcfauver Crime Committee to be president of the New York City Council. They have just signed up a new client in South America, the corporaclon Veruana del Santo, an agency nf the Peruvian government. It is paying the Fulton-Hallcy law firm $18,000 a year retainer to swing an Export-lmnorf Rank lo»n for Iho zinc and aluminum Industries in Peru. If Ihe loan Is granted, Fulton and Hallcy will Sitting Up With a Sick Friend get an additional $126,000---but paid over a three- year period to ease the tax bile. It's interesting to watch these gentlemen get ahead. Hoover vs. Ike--Herbert Hoover, long-lime isolationist, is secretly trying to line up delegates against Eisenhower in New York and New Hampshire . . .'By »n ironic twist of fate, Hoover underwent exactly the same criticism a.s Taft now makes against Elsenhower. When Hoover rin for 'president, he had never registered as a Republican. . ' ",, More Russian tanks--The American 'Legation cables the ominous news that the Russians are moving hundreds of T-34 tanks into Hungary, Rumania and Bulgaria. Russian tanks, which have proved so tough to handle In Korea, are re- pnrled to be equipped with ammunition and new engines and ; arc being distributed among the satellite armies in Eastern Europe, especially along Ihe Yugoslav border. Retutett Qen^ An Indian petitioned the judge of an Arizona court to give him a shorter name. "What is it now?" asked the judge. "Chief Screeching-Train- Whistlc," said the Indian. "And what do you want to shorten it to?" pursued the judge. The I n d i a n folded his arms majestically and grunled, "Tools." . * * *· Near Fiemlnglon, New Jersey, Hari'y Schcr- man, BOMC'Prexy, and his well-loved bride Bernardino, visilcd the Donald Klopfcr manse for a weekend. "What a lovely covered bridge you have down here," exclaimed Bcrnardine upon arrival. "It's so narrow, though, we just were able to get through it." Mystified, since there is no covered bridge loft in that part of the state, Mrs. Klopfcr instituted a search, and discovered that tlie Schcrnums had detourcd len yards off the road to drive through the Klopfcrs' open-end corn crib. * + * ' If all the trucks in New York were lined up bumper to bumper," noted Mayor Impelliteri in a speech to the Traffic Club, "I oresay they'd reach to Alaska--and. I wouldn't care to hear the Ihings they'd be shouting Ho the fellow in front!" Questions And Answers Q--Who was the first woman to sign a treaty for the United States? A--On October 1, 1951, Mrs. Eugene Anderson, Ambassador to Denmark,, signed the treaty of friendship, commerce and navigation drawn up between this country and Denmark to supersede one signed in Washington in 1826. Q--What is the origin of the expression, "The goose hangs high," implying that things are favorable? A--One likely explanation is that in some parts of the country a goose is hung high to season, and denotes that a feast of roast goose will soon be ready. Q--To what family does the tung tree belong? A--The tung tree is a member of the Spurge family. It is a native to China. Q--How does the Weather Bureau measure the fall of snow? A--It Is usally measured at the bottom of a standard eight-inch rain gauge, which is essentially an open-endtd can, eight inches in diameter and about two and a half feet high.' The snow is leveled off to cover the bottom at a uniform depth, which, measured in inches, is the amount of snowfall during a particular period. Q--What is the first historical record of a Christmas tree? A--The first historical mention, of a Christmas tree dales to a Strasbourg, Germany, record of 1609.

I'LL HAVE TO PAV THE TWO BUCKS, MYSELF, AND SAVE TIME AMD TROUBLE : xxx pETER SURINOV was glad when Jennet Logan got in that hi had a new automobile. The ret leather upholstery, toojiad seemw an extravagance at the time, bu now he felt like patting it. Her eyes were on the gleaming dashboard. Even the clock worked. Jennet had not seen him since thai day on the hilltop when she had given him the check that had brought so much trouble. She knew Peter had seen her--blue- while, stiff, cold from her meal of death (had her month hung slack?). But at any rate his lasl glimpse of her, however corpselike she may have looked, had not dampened his' ardor. He had phoned. He had pleaded. And she had put him off with so many excuses that she was not sure where Inclination ended and fear began. But now she was in his car. "How do you like my new car? he asked, as It purred away from the curb. "The windows work by push-button. Look." He demonstrated the one on her side. "Oh, w o n d e r f u 1," she said vaguely, bucking away from his nrm. Spoiled. She was used tn luxury cnrs. "You're looking very well," he said. "Thank -you, I'm fine now. Practically sane." Jennet opened her purse, took out a cigarette. There was a packet of matches too, but her hands were trembling. She preferred to let Peter hold the car lighter to the clgirette which she braced like a flute agtlntt ill four fingers. "How's your work at Starr's coming? Do you like It any better?" "Not much," he Mid. "But 1 like the Mliry. Kim time I've had a car that waio't Mcond-hand." "It's really a beautiful car Peter," the insisted belatedly. They passed Cbagiantz's jewelry shop, and glanced at and away from each other. A few doors dowr was the rush hut which treated the fashionable Trade Winds Restaurant. Peter slowed down. "How about a drink?" "Really, Peter, I can't. I'd love to--some other time. I have to If home. Mother is leaving for Chicago tonight. We're having an early supper so that she can make her train." The validity of the excuse angered him. "All right, I'll Uke you straight home." He stepped on the accelerator, drove in second fear all the way to Sunset because iti crescent growl was the 'nearest hi could come to emitting one. Hi remembered the day the ambulance siren had screamed for him and he loved her the mote because she caused him pain. THEY drove In silence fraught with tension. The physical current that ran between them, now, as before, overflowed tn« shores of their social knowledge'ol each other, Inundated each of them, and each, flailing In the current while pretending to stroll the banks, became too preoccupied for speech. Peter Indulged In fantasies of abduction, while Jennet with the practicality of thc~fcmale speculated nervously as -to whether he was "Red," supposed her rich, would some day think her old as the hid thought Gus old, "Was this your day off?" iht asked finally, "No, I just left eirly. Iphen*4 your home this afternoon. Yotif mother told me you didn't have your car." 'Won't they care-yout employers, I mean?" ·I don't Uunk am ft* * », executive bracket now. No clock- punching for the fallen. I just told Mr. Starr my girl was in a jam." "I'm not your girl." "You will be." "You're awfully «ure of yourself, aren't you?" "One of us has to be." Jennet had to laugh. "Peter, you're Impossible." '·That's better. I like you when you laugh. It's a good sound. Jennet, when are you going to stop fighting us?" Jennet looked out of the window. She dragged on her cigarette, blew smoke. "Peter, if you mutt know, 1 don't think It's right for me to be seen with you. People have done enough talking about us. Thank goodness it doesn't reach my ears, but I cm imagine the gossip. I'm not going to feed the kitty." "You don't mean that seriously, Jennet. You can't. You have more integrity than to be intimidated by gossip. Besides, you're overrating your newt value. We're yesterday's headlines at the hospital." "We could be tomotrow.'i." "So what?" TXNNIT dined. "I was btgin- J ning to feel almost quiet inside. I don't want to get ilT stirred up again." ' ' Peter'i jaw set. -"I don't know why I broke iny neck getting you lo the emergency room that day. If you're going to live as if you were dead ..." "I didn't ask you to do me any 'avors!" He pulled up to the curb In front of her home, stopping to suddenly hat they jerked back hard against the seat. It was odd how often ihe flared' up at Peter. "I'll live ai I please," she Added somewhat shamefacedly. Jennet couldn't remember hav- nf shown her anger ltk;e this to anyone, not even to the psychiatrist whom she paid to UsMn. »· fibbed Mr wrtfV llfbttnexl hi* nn*ejt artund It. "No, 11 I pl«*a». ·enut* you doal know how lo live, You never hive or you ewldnt MV* trie* to die. Lei me teach yow^Jennet It could he / and By WALTER LirrMANN Jt has often been said that ihe Atlantic community could be defeated by a failure to rearm in the West or by an inflationary catastrophe brought on by Ihe effort lo rearm. What about it Ihen today'/ Measured by Ihe military estimates, policies and plans of 1950-51, the rearmament of the Allanlic community as a whole is way behind schedule. On the financial side Britain and ihe slerling area are in the w.orsi of all the post-war crises. In France there is financial Icouble of increasing severity. The total picture would thus appear to he b'nck: II would appear thai Ihc Wcsl was not only failing lo rearm but thai was was running inlo bankruptcy. II would be bad enough, one might say, lo be armed Ihough bankrupt, bul to be unarmed and bankrupt as well would really be ioo much. + * * The total piclure is. however, quite false. Essentially it is allo- !lher false. The true picture is thai American rearmament is succeeding and lha.t Ihe stupendous induslrial Iransformation which Ihis requires is being accomplished with the inflation under control. I am not meaning lo be complacent and lo suggest lhat all is low well. But if complacency is bad, so also is a loss of confidence, especially when Ihcre is solid ground for having confidence. When I say thai American re- irmamenl is succeeding, I do not mean thai we have as many weapons al this moment--or that we shall have them six monlhs hence--as Ihe planners decided we ought to have when they made .heir plans. There is no doubt a [ailure here which needs lo be ooked into lo see whelher the banners were wrong or. whelher :hose who have been carrying oul ;beir plans have been inefficient. Bul the real test of the success or failure of American rearmament is not measured by the ilanners' schedule. It is measured by what the Russians Ihink of it. While, of course, we do not know what they Ihink of it. 1 do know what they ought to think of it. They ought io t h i n k that the American capacity to strike hard blows immediaiely, 'and lo mobilize the full mililary capacity of this country has now been brought lo a point where no war of aggression could be anything bul long, indecisive and- infinitely destructive. * * * If it is Irue, as I believe il is, that American rearmament is successful by this ultimate test-whether aggression could succeed" --then many of the problems of Western rearma'ment can be reexamined in the light of it. The problems of European unification,-of a European army, of the position of Spain, of rearmament in a country like Italy, can be dealt with in their true perspective--as tl)e problems of the reconstruct tion, rather tiian of the immediate defense, of Europe. . These problems are proving to be, as one might have expected', insoluable when they are treated as urgent matters of immediate military defense. Indeed, to treat them that way has been merely to postpone, if not to prevent, their solution. B'or they are not primarily military problems and they are insoluble by the decisions of military staffs. They are political problems and if they are soluble at all, it is in the long- range. That is w h y - I t is important not to let the fundamental success of American rearmarnent--which has-, created a new military strength in . the whole western . world--be obscured by the troubles and disappointments which we encounter " in carrying out our grandiose and superficially, conceived schemes for remaking Europe by the end of .last week. It might be very · dangerous if the Kremlin believed what was said about thesethings and\eally became convinced that the rearmament of the West has failed or is failing. It would also be a serious mat- ler if the'Kremlin allowed itself to, beiieve 'what its dogma makes it want to believe--that we are nn Ihe verge of bankruptcy by inflation. We are .not on the verge of bankruptcy by Inflation. Since " last winter, when we brought to an end the automatic increase of bank deposit money, we have been n..control of the forces that were threatening the great inflation. What is more, there is now at last genuine reason to hope that in Britain and in the sterling area, particularly in the United Kingdom, Australia, India and Pakistan, a change of policy and of method has been decided upon which will bring the inflation under control. The coming months will show whether this hope is justified. If it is, then it is not an idle fantasy to look forward to a time, which is not too far, off, when our society will be in fact--despite the anguish of the planners--at once armed and yet solvent. Dear Miss Dix: In order lo get a boy friend, would il, be advisable lo ask an altorne'y I have known for some time lo come to. 1113' home, which 1 share with my parents? I feel that were he to see me in my home surrnjindings he might become intcrr-sted in me, A friend tells me il is mid-Victorian not lo go places -where boys go lo pick up girls. 1 have always been told lhat il isn'l good for girls lo pick up dales. I am very anxious to havu a boy friend, but being a woman of Ihirly I feel that you just can'l ask a man lhat you may like for a dale. I think lhat everyone, feels thai il's the man's place to ask the girl and if she asks him perhaps he will think she's a fasl female. What is your advice in this mailer? J. D. Answer: I Ihink lhal you should feel perfeclly free to invite this penllemHli to your home. Should you feel some shyness about il, you mighl make some casual remark about it being a leap year when you extend the invilation. There are any number of ways that you might meet some eli- Kible single men without rtsort- ing to the very sad as well as dangerous practice of "picking up" perfect strangers. H is not only* not mid-Victorian, but very wise not to visit those places where men just pick .up dates. I doubt that you would ever find anyone that you would want for · a life male in such a place. I suggest that you entertain a few friends in your home and then invite on that occasion some male that you might be interested in, or that you go to the socials in your church or some social club that you may belong to. You are much more likely to meet a young man who would suit you in these environments than in the cheap dance halls, or other'such unnatural social contrivance.
