The Porkers won in those days, won irileresl- ly and entertainingly. A number of men who played oul- . ·landing-ball nvtrstill'cohttcctcrnvith the '·ports, world, some in pro football. Perhaps one of these would make a good basketball coach for his alma mater. Two names come to'mind most often-Jim Lee Howell and Kqd Hickey. Both arc now with professional football team setups, both well thought of in their present lobs,. But ft is not impossible that one or the other might be enticed into consideration of the post \j-hlch the resignation of Presley Askew has left vacant. Active consideration of a former player of the calibre of these two men would be pleasing to RazorbHck boosters who remember · the records established by tcams in days.gone by. Wo hope some thought will be .Riven along this lino by those who are responsible for choosing the new coach. Nature always gives us happier laws than those we give ourselves.--Montaigne.

Mefry-Go-Round ·r DMW «AMO» BHumonl, Texas--Jn this, tho Urged oll-rt- lining city in the world, lldclands oil is almott a Hunting word. The average Texan is BO core About it thnl he talk* «s it Texas were about to secede from the union. ' Native Tcxnn Tom Clark;XvHn as U.S. attorney general brought the tidclands oil suit, and native" Texan Mastin White, solicitor of the Interior Department, who helped, arc. excoriated almost a» if they were top members of the Kremlin. ' . ' - . . . To people of the other 47 states, tldelands.oll tniy mean nothing more than the oil wells drilled uudtr water off the coast of the United States. But to Texans, It h*5 become almost as symbolic as the Alfimo. Most of this is the result of Texas · pride, which runs strong In the Lone filar State; 'but part also to the fact that three, of. the wealthlst oilmen of the Southwest--II. L. Hunt, Clint .Murchifion and Moy Cullen---see the tldelands- oll It.iiie as an effective stick with which to beat Washington over the head. Vigorously anti-Truman,. H u n t and Murchison bolh siphoned money up to Senator McCarthy lo help defeat Sen. Millarri Tydlngs in Maryland, while floy Cullen paid a million' rlnl- lors for part interest in the Liberty radio network In order to put liberal Commentator Bill Shlrcr off the air and substitute for him rabid imtl-Achcson propaganda. Thc;;c three arc among the leaders of the battle against Elder Statesman Tom Connally, which Is why Texas Attorney .General Price Daniel, who knows 'little about foreign affairs, has suddenly become an'expert on. foreign af- ' fairs. Daniel has struck a gold mine of campaign contributions, and talks learnedly about Formosa just as If he really knew where Formosa was and who lives there. The more the young 'attorney general talks about foreign -affairs, the more he pleases his big-money backers and the more he convinces at least himself that he knows just as much as the present chnirman of the Senate Relations Committee, Senator Connailv.. . - · ' ' , ' · ' . * + . * . Texas Is such a. wide-open, friendly and scnsi- . bl« state that it's understand how it ean gel so worked up. However, Californium; arc just about the same. Tho paradoxical thing is that Texans are worked up ovcr'somethlng that FO far doesn't scorn to exist. What few Texans seem to know Is that not onn dollar of tidclands oil royally has yet been received on the wells drilled off the Texas coast In the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, the wells drilled BO far have been duds. Only one lldclands oil well, according to the records of the Geological Survey, has struck anything. This well Is In block 241 and produced .40 barrels In a day, after which It was plugged as not being worth the running of a pipeline. Of · bout five other wells near Beaumont, drilled close to the shore lino some time ago, one is bringing in a Email return. In contrast, 15 or 20 wells have been drilled In water several miles (iff the Texas coast at « Joss of more than a million dollars each. Louisiana, on tho other hand, has brought in nome lush tldelandu wells. Maybe Texans are .getting all steamed up over nothing. .'. .. * * .*..' '. / In California, also, there's bic« so much oratory about tidclands oil t h a t few people are aware of some certainly Interesting lads. .This is Ihe failure ot companies opcrallng on behalf of the city of Long Beach to put meters on their wells. Without meters, it Is obviously Impossible to measure accurately the flow of oil, and accordingly fix the amount of royalty accruing to tho people of Long Beach or the federal government. This is important for several reasons. In the first place, revenue from tldelands oil off Long Betch was supposed to be held in tr.usl for the people of Long Beach; or.^under the subsequent U.S. Supreme Court ruling, for the federal government. ..Second, California claims that It can administer tidclands oil more efficiently than the federal government. However, failure to put meters on the wells would seem a powerful argument to the contrary. * * + Another interesting reflection on California efficiency Is a recent report by M. D. Hughes, chief harbor petroleum-engineer of Long Beach, that lldclands oil was subject to pilfering. "It Is possible for almost anyone to drive » tank truck Into the field and load up," the alert Long Beach Independent reporlcd. The newspaper also quoted Harbor Engineer Hughes as slating: "There is an unnecessarily large number of unsealed clean oil oullets at all test tanks, trap settings and tank farms that are inadequately controlled." When this and other tldelands oil irregularities came to the attention of the California stale legislature, its Committee on Oil -issued a critical report, warning 1 that because of inefficient administration. It might become necessary lo take lideland oil lands away from the city of Long Beach. . "There Is evidence of substantial unauthorized use and administration of at least a largo portion of the granted lands," the California state legislature: said of the Long Beach tidc- lands operation. Since Long Beach is by far (he wealthiest ·tidelands development of the Pacific Coast and since California has claimed it can operate tide- They'll Do It Every Time --«*· By Jimmy Hatlo HMIT'LL VDU HE4R THIS OrJE.M/tC IT StEMS THERE AHD THEX WERE SMMESE I TELL THAT ONE VEf?X WELL- LETS HEAX HOtV l vr H4VE 00 HEXRD THE CUD HXJ HEAR THE OrtE TH£ SMMESE MIDGET?

But curiously she did noi feel ·the old helplessness, the old depression. She felt, rather, a summoning of power wilhin her, a girding for battle, and she moved ·from the Queen Anne chair to sit beside Peter. She tnok his hand and clasped it hard in hers, while she attended Fred's words. Fred was a spare man, dark, wavy- haired, and In his navy blue suit with the white pinned shirt and whlte-strlped~navy tie, his body had a right-angled, whittled look. His eyes, slightly bloodshot, were overlarfic, his features fine, and a permanent frown had become imbedded In his forehead by the too constant elevation of eyebrows. The frown and the gritty Voice And the impenetrable reserve gave Jennet a sensa of unease Jn his presence, although, touched by his loyalty to Peter, she felt affection for him. Fred told of the questions he had been asked--nbout Peter's character, nffllliitlons, friends, political, leanings, parenl.i--und the answers l.o had Riven. He relayed the hoarso sentences with an almost boyish shumcfnccdncss, for the questions carried an affront which mode the nnswers sound pl«c*(lng. "It's easy to answer factual questions about a friend," Fred apologized, "but when you're asked for your opinion of .your friend's oplnleru, the conversation lets * little hot. I began to squirm after a few minutes of It. I felt he was trying to trip me up. 1 1 betan lo feel kind ol si* a«d mem like I really had something lo hide You get that way when you're hounded, you get mean. 'Fret Chaney,' I said to myself, 'i! they're after your friend, they're after you.' Anyway, Peter, I die my best. But there's one thing's got me worried. One thing in particular ..." "What's that?" P e t e r asked shajply, suddenly conscious of the two words that had lain like gallstones at the bottom of, his mind: "Washington files." · · · RED s p r e a d his -immaculate hands, set them, gleaming, on his knees. "Remember the ,time we went to that Kirl't house to hear what we thought was going to be a speech by Kelly? Her name was Mary Templar. Remember?" Th« brittle joints of the trumpet vine baat on the window pane in another rise of night wind, jennet lad left his side to put a long match to the gas under the logs, and the logs cracked in the sudden .rough of flame. The wind licked he flames pointing their tips with ts curving tongue. Now and then there was a disheveling downward rust of wind--n shower of sparkj. Peter took his eyes from the hyp T nolle m o t i o n of the Ore and watched his wife move from win- tow to window drawing the heavy lomcspun drapes. He looked at ho dim waist which he could span vith his hnnds arid he saw It hlckencd to support the weight of a child. Hii -heart made a tit Id his breast at the thought 4 whit one gone night, a vljlt man iiurt- ul than political, might do to the new family of .Peter Surlnovt, Mtry Tciyphr, He had seen her "::l His r;ar bending over desk. The chubby pink toga straining the white silk seams, making worms of them. "Miss Templar!" When she turned, he saw the round pink face, the pink chubby arms swelling out of tight short cuffs. They discussed, the thyroid patient. She asked him then if he'd like to come to her house that night to hear Kelly speak, or wasn't he a Democrat? He had a date with Fred that night, but he decided to bring him along. He and Fred arrived late. Mary Tempjar's living room was filled wilh people sitting in rows of those rented collapsible chairs. THEY took seats in the back of the room. Mary Templar turned at the sound of their scraped chairs, dimpled at Peter and waved. The speaker was concerned with the current problems of a musicians' union. While he ipoke, papers were passed among :be audience for signatures. The mimeographed forms respectively protested the indictment of the Hollywood Ten and a bill written by an incumbent Republican seemingly designed'to limit* free speech. Peter and Fred signed each orm. As the meeting progressed, t became increasingly apparent that the speakers held fast to the Communist Party line. Kelly did not arrive till midnight and he spoke rambllnfly about very little. The following week, Peter met ennet, after which Mary Tcmp- ar looked lo hirn like a perspiring dairy-maid. She even, he noticed, ltd a dairy smell. He didn't dale heir again. The incident was closed. Or win 17 As a result, his signature affixed to two liberal protests was on »le in Washington, and the pro- tits would serve as a record of ill attendance at a Communist ·alhertruj. ' "I rMMtor," Peter said at lait. ' "I ti*4 f«r|Ctte*, but I remember M*. Bo Out', what Cola meant * must be. He's tot a very effl- etunt little spy system at the hoi- Ilal. He'd have dug iu this sort t thing." f«l Last week in voting for th Berry resolution, the House Representatives brought forwar once mt«e what may.- be eallc the American version -of a prob lem which is agitating London Paris and' Bonn. In all fou parliaments -there is now a ma jorlty . determined to scrutiniz and limit the commitments whic their foreign ministers are makin to one another. The opposition In each countr suspects Its own diplomats abroa of a willingness to sign blan checks in order to reach agree went with the other diplomats Mr. Churchill is being censure in London for promising too muc to Mr. Truman. Mr. Acheson i suspected in Congress of havin promised too much to Mr. Chur chill. The Bonn Parliament i plainly suspicious of Dr, Aden auer's disposition, to agree-with M Schuman, and the. French Parlla ment has done its best lo truss-ui M. Schuman before he agrees too completely with Dr. Adenauer., * · * There is something here whicl is obviously of great important and worth taking much trouble to understand. For a starter il is impressive llial in each country the crucial and burning issue is on the power to order IroopE inlo baltle. The democracies may not be well informed, or deeply and regularly concerned, about the inlri cale course of diplomacy. Bui they are profoundly jealous of theii right and power to have the fina say about whether Iheir sons shall je sent abroad to fight,.and per- laps lo die, in foreign lands. That s the ver}' essence, they feel, ol being free, independent, and self- governing. Tlie Berry resolution, particularly- when it is read logelher wilh the speeches of flepresenta- ives Vorys, Berry and Halleck, makes Ihis very plain. "II should kept in mind," said Mr. Halleck horlly before Ihe final roll call, "that the resolution is narrowly limited. It has to do merely with the use of American forces abroad, and actions, 'commitments and un- derslangings--nol conversallons or discussions, but agreemcnls and commitments--lhal would involve us in war." * * * Mr. Halleck was not asking for transcript of everything that was said while the Churchill mission was in Washington. Mr. Halleck wanted public assurances that Mr. Truman and Mr. Acheson had made no promises to Mr. Churchill and Mr. Eden which may mean engaging more American forces--by which he really meant tnore American infantry--across the seas. The debate brought out what is worrying Congress. They are afraid that the promise in the Churchill - Truman communique : 'to lend- all assislance in their power" to "establish a European defense community" may corne to mean 'that more American divisions are to be sent for a longer lime to G e r m a n y. They are afraid, also, that the adminislra- tion mighl be sending, as Mr. Vorys put it, "American troops to the Suez or some oth^r foreign territory," and. they feel that "if such is .the case, Congress 'should know about it." " .'·"'"-·' The majority'in 'Congress fee) strongly, and the administration Democrats had no stomach'id" dispute it with them, that, is id r Halleck said, "We are already in' one war, a fighting, shotting, killing war, which, never' to this day, has been declared by''-the Congress of ' the United State*. Many of us are being asked; 'Will another war be institute*, withoul consultation with the Congress-somewhere ' around the 20,000- mile perimeter of the'Russians?*"" * · · The question which'all this'pre- sents is reconcile the nat- iral.^ undeniable and. righteous insistence of the 'democracies with Ihe effective use of military force :n maintaining the balance 'of ;)ower lo prevent aggression. '"'· It is necessary to recognize that American . military power is not something which can be kept, so o speak, in the deep freeze 'and under lock and key until Congress las aulhorized ils use by declaring var. ' The miiilary power of the Jnited Slates is something which las lo be in continual use, not as a shooting force but as what Is mown technically as a force in icing--a force 'which does not lave, to shoot because Its shoot-, ng ability is known and has been" ·alculated correclly by the an- agonist abroad and by the con- luclors ot foreign policy at home. In order to use military power* s a force in being, the govern- nent in its dealings with foreign nations has to be able to say vhether the United States would ct with force if and when some lation used force. This does not require the kind, f commitment to which Congress s really objecting--the power to ut an army into a country and ghl a war Ihere of lhat country, s attacked. Where this kind of' ower to commit is necessary, as it 'as for Weslern Europe under 'ATO, it is downright folly on le part of any president -not tp ake the matter to Congress, to ave il debated thoroughly, and to nake sure thai Congress shares illy his responsibilities. For the mosl part, around most r the great 20,000-mile perimeter, hat is required is not the power o commit American troops but power to give the American uarantcc. There is no serious rgumenl in this country about he power of the president to give guarantee. It has back of it the np and unqueslioned precedenl Ihe Monroe Doclrine. Senator aft has not only not questioned his power but he has himselT een a leading advocate of Ameran guarantee. So far as this country is con- erned the problem is in its ·esent form not at all.dtfflcult-to olve. But it will not be'solved-- ertainly not in an .election.year-- Mr. Truman, instead of-admit- ng some fault and some error his conduct of the Korean waf, ands there stubbornly uncom- unicative and coldly unrespon- ve on Ihe ground lhat he was imehow altogether right all · the inc.
