Views expressed arc those of the author. Men of Courage ' An old .proverb says, "Honor and case ' Me seldom bedfellows." Honor can bn a · most 'exacting boss, because it requires so much attention to duty. On t h e other hand, a man's seiiEe of duty can be a sustaining power, in'his life. . , . . .. As might be expected of Washington, the chief motive power In his life was the spirit of duly. This was the keystone in the arch of his character. When he clearly Mw his duty before him, lie did i t ' a t all hazards. He did i:ot do it for effect; nor nor did hi think particularly of glory, or of fame and Us rewards, but of the right thing to be done, and the-beet'way of lo- h-K'it. He held', to his purpose through good and evil re 'orts, often at the risk of his power and pcrsor."! irilucnce. -Honor'often demands a f u l l mcasure:of perspiiitl courage.

T. Waggoner ranch near here, a cowboy who was told lie was going to get » raise in pay protested violently. "No sir," he exploded, "1 nln't a gonna t a k e it. I don't want no Increase in pay, and they can't m a k e me tnkc it." The foreman explained that no' extra work was expected, but that "Mr. J3ob," referring to Bob Anderson, manager of the Waggoner estate, wanted the boys In be given « rnlsc. "It don't make no difference," protested the, rnwboy. "If I get a nii.ic It means I pay more nodal security to .the government, and I'm not going to give one more dime to that man Tru- mnn." This rounds like an exaggeration, but it Isn't. It's about typical of how ;i lot of folks feel out hrro about the president of the United States. 'Iho sltusilon Ij probably similar to that which c x l K t M In the latter days of the Hoover administration when, just before election in November 11)32, Hoover took a train to California to vote. SlUinc for m o n t h s ' J n the' White House, Hoover had 110 irlca of his rapidly mounting tide of unpopularity. Callers and adviser's had assured him of election success) But, as he crossed the continent, his train slopping for rc;ir-p!at- form appearances, the meagre, hostile crowds for the first time cave Hoover a portent of things lo come. A few days later he was overwhelm" ' ingly defeated. * * * Whnl price Connolly'/--Texans are Intrigued river Ihe senatorial reelection race of caustic, crusty Tom Connally, who has represented the Lone Stir State in Congress for more than » quflrler century. Originally, wjicn Gov. Allan Shivers was scheduled to run against Connally. it was said Tom hud a bad case of "the shivers." but now precocious opportunistic Price Daniel, Texas' young attorney general, is r u n n i n g against Tom and thc'scnaloMsn't shivering any more. Some nf Tom's mentally meandering colleagues In the Senate, however, would certainly like to see his caustic tongue hrirllccl, and know Hint defeiit Is the only thing t h a t will ever do It. Such ii menial mennricrcr is GOP Senator Wntklns of Utah, who tangled with Tom recently during debute over the admission of Grew nnd Turkey into the North A t l a n t i c pact. Watkins raised a question regarHIni; article 11 of the pact, lo which Cnnnnlly replied: "To those who can read, and also t h i n k -- n n d those two qualifications do not alwnys go together--this article should be clear." "I want to know If article I I means tliat the provisions of this trcnty are to be implemented by Congress?" Watklns persisted. . "How docs (he senator think they nre to be Implemented?" stormed the senator from Texas. "Does he think they arc to be Implemented by the bnolulaek in the barbershop? . . . Anyone who would not w a n t to agree with the sciialor from Georgia as the scnntor from Utah can neither-read nor write nor understand." Note--Those Who know Texns politics arc betting (hat long Tom's caustic tongue will be heard In the Senate for some time. * * * Beef Is big business--The second biggest ranch In the .U.S.A. spreads nut over !iin,000 acres of North Texas near here, In a farming operation that makes an Easterner rub his dycS In bewilderment. ·""Owned by W. T. Wflggoner,'Wh6 drilled wells tor-water and got sore when he struck oil, thr rjiR-h now has enough,pll wells to bring In millions regardless of beef, and enough cattle to bring -prosperity regardless nf oil. Sllll short of walcr, the Waggoner cslnlc has riamrnod up streams to form three bin a r t i - ficial lakes and has scooped out a couple nf hundred ponds to water entile during the drv season, Though ranching today Is big business, even the most modern rancher can't get nlnnc without the rapidly vanishing cowboy. I drove ahctr: 30 miles nut on the Texas prairies to Ihc h c n i t of the W Rqoner ran.'li, where eight cowboys were rounding up mnverlcks, rhicflv hulls thai hnd strayed off nnd escaped being branded nnd altered. ' Each cowboy uses six horses on a Job like Hint, resting five horses, while he rides one. In the summer, when horses have to grn?. e for their own feed, each cowboy hns a string of from U to 16. 5mellmcs, when the work is tough he will use two or three in n dny. On Ihc Waggoner ranch, branding and altering Is usually done on the open prairie without a corral. Frequently It takes too long lo herd ci.tllc Into Ihc corral. B u t . o n the day I visited the ranch, Ihe mnverlcks then being rounded up «crc so wild t h a t they couldn't be horded any place. They were roped, tied, then hauled to the corral by jeep. Even though n modern rnnch can'l get along without cowboys, the profession is one which doosn t seem to enlist new recrnjls. Few youngsters--at least in the West--want to beet me cowboys. They become mechanics, salesmen--or- go to college. The spring or fall crop of steers on the Waggoner rnnch is somotimcr. sold to one buyer months in advance.

The footbnll scandals, plus talk o[ overemphasis and pollution ot the a m a t e u r spirit, moved I3cnn Warlock, of Oomphala Tech, to make a drastic announcement. The' gridiron squad was disbanded, the schedule cancelled. "Let us de- vole the time and energy saved to a study of the classics and' the eternal verities," said the dean piously. Then he dispalched his right-hand man, Ovcrmyer ot the math department, ^to sound out student opinion on his radical move. Did they stand back of him or did they not? Ovcrmyer was ready to report at the end or a fortnight. "Dean Warlock," he declared, "fully ninety-seven per cent of the student body is heartily in favor of the step you took.

McDonald, thinking fast countered, "Gee, Boss, that must have been EARLY in the afternoon. You should have seen me after the fifth race!" * * * A lady who cannot resist the lure of roulette wheels and slot machines stopped off at Reno on her way home from the coast, and bumped into Walter Clark, author of The Ox-Bow Incident. "Fancy meeting you here," exclaimed Clark. "What hotel are you staying at?" "Hotel?" echoed the lady, as she bought a new stack of chips. "My dear boy, I've only been here four days!" Questions And Answers Q--Is the sight of one eye superior to that . of the other? A--Examination of some 56,000 factory em- ployes in England showed consistent superiority nf the right eye over the left one. Q,--What does the American smorgasbord feature? ' · A--The American smorgasbord usually features many appetizing dishes arranged on a long counter or table, and the diner walks by and fills his plate, cafeteria style. Q--What is the origin of the word silhouette? A--Etienne dc Silhouette was controller general of France in the 18th century. During his regime he Imposed such heavy taxes on the peo- r,le, stripping them of so much of their wealth, that silhouette became a term for a figure reduced to its simplest form. Hence it came to mean the profile of an object. Q--How many days comprise the Islamic year? A--It has 354 days divided into 12 months. Since the Islamic year is much* shorter than the solar year, the Islamic New Year constantly moves backward through the seasons. Q--In ancient Greece what was the significance of an olive branch placed on a door? A--When a Greek child was born, an olive branch was placed on the door if it were a boy. A piece of wood was used as a symbol of household duties if it were a girl. Q--What is the softest of all precious stones? A--The emerald. Dr. Logan's Wife · By Diana Gam** ·C.I .ilk tk. MM)**, !··!. XXXVI JENNET LOGAN drove herself ·* home in her car, Peter Surinov ·blowing in his. She pulled into the garage and walked to the front as he pulled up to her curb. The clcnr cris,) air had the bite ol smelling salt. The sky was netted with stars. At her front door, she handed him her key, (ess out of social form than because her hnnds were trembling. But If she hnd expected Peter to master the situation, she was mistaken. He dropped the key, had to light · match to find It in the dirt, tried both sides of It In the lock, tugged angrily nt the knob. "Maybe you belter," he said, enraged. "I don't seem to hive the combination." HU confuiion hnd n perverse effect upon her. She opened the door wlth'one half turn of the key. She threw her wrap on the settee, mapped on the living room lights. "I'll Ket.the fixings," ulie snid. Her volo w»j high nnd shaky, "Make yourself comforUblc. Light the fire If you like." He clwred his throat. "I don't want anything more to eat nnd drink," he frbwled. She felt hli hands on her wnlst. She turned ilowly, ilckcned by the pounding of her heart. · "I don't wint n drink. 1 wnnt you, Jennet, don't make me wall any more." "I'll meet you downstairs," sh« Hid. H» hctrd her coming down th« itilri.

She slepi against him like a hibernating animal all the way to Tia Juana. * · · "THEY stopped in Laguna for cocktails and dinner, and they entered the tavern merrily, lighthearted, noisy, superior, as Jennet hnd somehow always known she could be. They took a table that looked out on the ocean whose lip had been kissed by the sun to a rosy burn. The waiter laughed with them as they ordered their drinks, made them a present of his stiff-necked, continental Daughter that carried the Inference that h« who had been around knew the real thing when he saw it. When he brought their -cocktails, he called their attention to the little twists of lemon they had requested, he had not forgotten, who could forget the requests of newlyweds? But as they «at over their drinks, touching hands nnd ankles, their voices low, vibrantly personal, the light In the sky all but died, the water lost Its shine of warmth. The waller cnme over, silently put a match to the cnndle on the table. Instantly, nature backed off, withdrawing Its largess, leaving mortals to tend for themselves through Ihe night. The suntanned faces" at Ihe tables around them flared In the sudden light of their own candles, twk on the pntlna of old pine, «nd their eager absorption had a onk of haste. Almost, Jenne't thought, as If they were carven juppels, briefly animated, hurrying to b« human btfora Uwlr time ran out. JcniMt milled at Peter brightly, 1«t'« call your mother and father and Ihe Pelletleri. Ufa phone them right Bowl" As she hnd hon«d, the cmgratu. alorjr e»clUm«nt thai thrummed along the telephone wires was an affidavit attesting the reality of the new marriage. ". . . and the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night" . . . She eould barely resist humming It aloud as she held to her ear the wild jubilation of Peter's father's voice. But her mother-in-law's sobbing wu even better, more.-resKuring. "Is the happiest moment of my life, Jennet--daughter! So ' long our Peter has beer, loving you, so much he was talking to us about you--that you are lovely . . ." Yes, that was proof. Children imagined, mothers never. Children cried over nothing, but mothers never cried, even with joy, unless something real had happened. There was another kind of reassurance in the gentle teasing of Stella and Walter--their .words, their voices gave social blessing, the approval of the extra-familial world. QRUNK with celebrity, Jennet ·^ cried, "It's such fun, Peter, such fun to telll Could we call Chicago from here? I can't wait. This coiy little phone booth, like a house around us." « There was no answer to the ong-distance call to her parents in Chicago, but they reached Fred Chaney, the man who had been he speaker at the better housing 'orum. Enr to ear at the receiver, hey sobered to the urgency of Fred's voice. "I've got to see you right away, Piter, It's Important, ihame to interrupt your first night tome but man, I've -Mn trying o get hold of you since Wednesday, and I have to go on · field rip tomorrow.... Well, I'm afraid can't, not over the phone, but It concerns your future matt yltally. And now, Jennet's too. Funny to hlnk of you married, Pater. It's treat though, I sure wish you luck. How long do you figure It'll uke you Irom Laguna? Oh, you haven't had dinner. Right, 111 be there around 10. Whlteoaks, two blocks north of Sunset Yet, Brentwood, know, past Seeulveda. I got It, See you at 10. And my beet wlabe* o your bride." ,v I and By WAl/Tlt UFPMANN It Is, to say the least, an inter esting idea which the North Ko rcan delegate put out on Mondaj that the Soviet Union be appoint ed one of the "neutral" nation to inspect' the truce, it would b particularly interesting to kno\ what were the considerations, a between the North Koreans, th Chinese and the Russians, whic led them to propose that th Soviet Union*=-hilhcrto in its pub lie position so chastejy aloof-should now be drawn openly am avowedly into the Korean 'busi ness. It is hard lo believe that th' Russians have been introducei into the affair at this late date jus to make us see red once moi in a spirit so to speak of pure mischief. It would not be too surprising if the Russians had decided tha their interests in Korea now required that they should be rcpre sented openly in all parts of Ko- ·ea, and that the North Koreans lad agreed with them, indeed encouraged them to come in, in order not to be left too much alone with their Chinese friends. This s, of course, pure speculation. 3ut there must be some reason 'or this unexpected development Inspecting the armistice is lardly a sufficient reason. For Soviet agents can and will inspect he armistice whether or not they are officially designated to inspect t.. But they would not have clip- omatic standing in Korea. They vould not have the right to keep he Koreans aware that the Soviet Inion, as well as the United States, s present and concerned with the uture of Korea. * * · In rejecting this proposal we might, I would suggest, make ountcr-proposal. It would be an nvitatlon to the Soviet Union to iccome one of the guarantors of he armistice. The logic of our position points directly to such an invitation. We say that the lovict Union is not a neutral in the Korean war. She is, therefore, a participant. If she is a participant in the Korean war, then she should sign the armistice that is supposed to conclude that war. Indeed we should say that the armistice is incomplete unless she signs it. We are on weak ground if we argue, on the one hand, that Russia Is engaged In the war, is in fact a principal in the war, and thfen, on the other hand, that she must not he permitted to have any part in the armistice and the conference which are to stop the war and to end it, There is more lo all this, however, than logic. It would be sound policy, and in our own best interests, to put an end to the fiction which protects and masks the Soviet Union's own interests in the Far East. For she too has interests that are in conflict with those of the peoples of Asia. The fiction is no doubt enormously convenient for the Soviet Union. But certainly it adds only to our own difficulties to have i the Russians operating always in the background, never on the front of the stage and in the limelight. Surely, our policy should be to make them present their claims and interests openly, to that the Chinese, the Koreans, the Japanese and all the peoples of Asia may see that Russia, qua Russia, has interests of her own. * * * There are many, I realize, who take quite a different view. They think that the best course ii to exclude the Soviet Union and Red China as far as possible from the diplomatic arena. They hope in addition to reduce as far as possible the list of subjects that.may be discussed in . any negotiation in which the Communist powers or their satellites are engaged. Our people who feel that way think that any diplomatic contact with the principal Communist powers is appeasement, and that the larger the scope of the negotiation, the greater our defeat and the more abject our surrender. They are recommending what is in ircality a suspension, even if it is .not an open breach, of diplomatic intercourse between the Communist orbit' and ourselves. Not many, however, who take this view are prepared to say, or really mean to say, that diplomacy is exhausted and that the die is cast 'or war. I can understand, though I deeply disagree with, those who lave lost patience and hope and are for war.- But what we have :oday in this country are very arge numbers of people who lonestly do not want war and yet very sincerely, for what seems o them high moral reasons, do not .wish to have the diplomatic dealings which are the alterna- ive to war. * * * One of the principal difficulties tinder which we are laboring in he Far East is that it is so dif- icult, indeed next to impossible, o conduct an effective diplomacy and at the same time to please all he people who feel that it is a / noral contamination to make liplomatic contact w i t h our enemies. . ' Thus it would be good diploma- y in the Far East not to exclude tie Russians from the Korean ettlement but on the contrary to ake the initiative and demand liat they come into the opeji, to cclare their jnterosts and accept heir responsibilities. Good di- lomacy, if its object is an armis- icc, will always aim to involve nd to bind the principals, not merely their agents. It will far refer the signature of Stalin on ny protocol or treaty to the ignature of Kim II Sungi It will not treat Stalin's signa- ure as a victory for Communism, s some great favor and benefit urrendcred by us to the Great led Mogul. It will regard his gnature as a tic--no doubt not lade of steel--that would bind him more t h a n if he had not engaged himself at all. Dear Dorothy Dix: I a^m a married woman of 30, tl.' mother of threr children. My trouble dates hack to my childhood, when [ was the youngest of four children nnd my father's favorite. My mother, brothers and sisters resented dr.o's partiality towards me and *always seemed to hate me. I started to work when I was 20, and sent half my money home :o my mother every week. In fact, [ have dc.-ie everything I could to win the love and approval of my 'amily. While I was sending the money home, they all treated me very well; but after I married and stepped vorkjnjr, they went back to the oM ways. Now when I go to visit them (the family still lives together though my brothers and sister are married), they don't seem a bit glad to see me, and in fact act as though they'd be glad to see me go and rut come back. They show no love or affection for tny children, either. They never visit me. I try to pretend to my husband that our family is a very happy one, but I'm sure he's not fooled. Now I have come to the point where I don't care if I win my family' slove or npt. Up to now I have been an easy mark for them, in my endeavor to have their approval. Now I don't fee" that way any more.
