Child They'll Do It Every Time" THE WASHINGTON · » Merry-Go-Round BT DREW PEAMOV Washington--One of the paradoxes of oolitic* l« t h a t President Trumnn allowed his name to be plttced in the New Hampshire primary to save s Democratic national commlttceman who consistently plays ball with the lleputalicans. The cuminilteeman, Eimnct Kciley, was certain In lose his post nnd with him several othci organization Democrats, If Ihe presldcnl dldn'l run, Now, however, the race looks so tight in New Hampshire .that thin l i t t l e group of Democrat tnay lose out anyway. Kcllcy, for whom Truman did this favor, it so close to New Hampshire Ticpubllcanii that Gov. Sherman Adiims has consistently appointed him racing commissioner. In return, Kellcy has frequently thrown his weight behind ncpubliciip policies In order to get Democratic members of the New Hampshire legislature to support the governor. Kellcy is also backed by the banking Interests through t h e First Nallonnl Bank of notion, Ihe utilities through Layrence W h i l m n r e , anil works for Ihe stancbly Republican Brown Paper Company of Berlin, N. H. There are the same powerful Interests which used part of Kclley's machine to attempt In defeat Senator Tobcy, though Tobey supported so many of Truman's policies that his GOP enemies called him a Democrat. Thus Truman bared lus breast and let his name stand In the New Hampshire primary; to mvc a Ic.idcr who lias consistently opposed his basic principles; yet who, In order lo have hi* political prestige, Is now pulling out every card In the deck to put Truman across In the current primary. * * * To do xo Kcllcy has done the following: 1. Lined 1 up (he slate's best Democratic volc- gctters to run as Truman delegates, and the, politicians to manage the Truman campaign. In contrast, Senator Kcfmivcr's dcle- · gates arc unknown, while hit political workers arc amateurs. 2. Cracked the whip over federal job holders. Jim Farley .once said Hint every federal worker wa« worth 40 votes, counting his friends and relatives, and, In a small' state like New Hampshire, the 2.300 federal job* »re enough to swing a Democratic primary. 3. Swung the labor unions behind Truman. This was accomplished by a 7-lo-3 vote of the United Labor Policy Committee which includes the AFL, CIO, United Mine Workers and an Independent shoe union. Despite this, no APL re'lircsentative showed up at the recent Manchester meeting at the rticc- Varick Hotel featuring ex-Sen. Scott Lucas of Illinois and ex-secretary of the Navy John Sullivan; while Arielard Coley, chairman of the United Labor Policy Committee--though it may be denied--is rt secret Kcfauvor supporter. Despite these overwhelming Truman odds, however, here Is what has been happening in the lost week. rty getting nut nnd meeting people, the senator from Tennessee lias won rank-nnrl-flle support. Though not » stirring speaker, Kcfnuver's slncerlty,,modcEt.v and honesty has made a deep I m p r i n t , and his w|ilrhvlnd t n u r of the state has left a trail of supporters behind. The question is whether It will be enough to offset the organized labor and machine vote. + * * Kcfniivcr completely nonplussed Emmet Kel- lev by sending a personal messenger to assure him that there would be no hard feelings a f t e r the primary. This was done so.quietly that It didn't leak lo the press, but one of Kefauver'« aides marched right I n t o Kmmet Kelley's stronghold, a n d . delivered tho message. Kclley was so -flabbergasted that he almost sjiuttercd. In contrast, ex-Senate Majority Leader Scott Lucns, still nursing n grudge against Kefauver, has Invaded New Hampshire to get revenge, Lucas poured mil his bitterness at a secret meeing of Democratic leaders at the Rlce-Varick Hotel in Manchester. X About 45 leading Dcmoi-nits came in response tripwires from cx-Sccrclary of the Navy John L. Sullivan, but the meeting was brief and dlfnirit- ed. wllh Lucas whining about his defeat In Illnols instead of delivering a fighting, pro-Truman/ speech. ' , Lucas, an able clli/cn when he Is able to forgot the past, complained that Kefanver had cost him his Senale seat by bringing the crime Investigation to Chicago, t h a t Kefauver wouldn't have embarrassed the Democratic party If he had been a good Democrat. Lucas concluded t h a t President Truman Is "invaluable In this hour of peril" and "should be persuaded to run again." * + + AJmost unnoticed In the military appropriations llll passed by Congress last year was $100,000.000 In be used for underground operations behind Ihe Iron Curtain. This Is something which Mils columnist lias been urging for years. Most Amercans have sat back and followed Ihe policy of letting Communists penetrate the USA, without penetrating the Iron Curlaln in return. This was one reason for Ihe freedom balloons launched over Czechoslovakia and Poland last summer. However, following the $100.000,000 appropriation by Congress last year, almost nothing has been done to use It for penetrating the Iron Curlaip. It has been snarled, pnrtly in « bureaucratic controversy over how the money shall be spent, partly In « controversy over Hussinn refugees. Hecenlly, however, Sen. Pat McCarran of --- By Jimmy Hatlo Taking the Patient for a Ride W THE Orty RK ROTLM OtvNEP VMS A OTH-eATEN /tlRECMLC CCWT, EVEf?/ HOUSE US ALWAYS MU04.MUCM TOO WARM FOR HER- SHE MARRIEP VAH fflLT/WPNOH' MS A NBV aUE MINK - P64K , PIMM , HOlV VEPPX CHILLY ITAUtfAYS S8EM5 WOOOf?S Nevada has been applying pressure to break this stalemate. He has thrown his weight behind the Ukrainians, some of whose leaders are active in the USA. Whijj! other Russian refugees in the United States are opposed to the Ukrainians, claiming they are so rabid that they play into Stalin's hands, nevertheless it's a fact, more than any other group inside Ilussia, the Ukrainians have the nationalist urge. For years they have sought lo be independent of the Soviet! Last winter, this writer, surveying conditions alongside the Iron Curtain, interviewed Ukrainian refugees who reported that the- underground movement was still reasonably strong inside thai part of the Soviet. While actual f i g h t i n g against Soviet officials had been crushed. the refugees reported t h a t resentment was still smouldering and could be fanned again. It would appear therefore, tha,t, despite Ihe risk of antagonizing oilier Hussinn refugee groups, Senator McCarran Is right in urging that a starl be made with the Ukrainians toward the all-important job of penetrating the Iron Curtain. Note;-- Ever sinre the freedom balloon operation of last summer which dropped 22,000,000 messages over Poland and Czechoslovakia, I have been trying lo persuade key officials in Washington to permit another operation of this kind. The Crusade for Freedom has been doing likewise. Rut permission has not been forthcoming, largely because of crossed wires between d i f f e r e n t government bureaus regarding the problem of pcnctraling the Iron Curtain. Thirty Yearn Aio Today (Fayctlevllle Daily Democrat, March 10. 1022) The Ozark region from Springfield to Surlngdale is the center of tiie grape belt In the United States, and will, according to recent statements s6on be the center of the grape in- duslry of this country. The Ozark region is said by experts investigating the matter to be so well suited for the growing of grapes that they expect that this territory within a few years Tvill rival if not surpass the now famous Chautauqua section In New York and Ihe grape belt of the Pacific coast. A new road up Cane Hill Mountain is to be built by citizens of Lincoln, Cane' 1 Hill .and Prairie Grove and committees from these three cornmunilios are in consullalion relative to ways and means. It is proposed to have an engineer lay out this road over the route selected by the joint committee as soon as practicable. The old ' road, which is now almost impassable. Is said lo have been located before the Civil War. Twenty Years 'Ago Today (Fayetleville Daily Democrat, March 10, 1932) Several of the Young Democrats of Fay- etlcvlllc, as additional judges and clerks for the August 'primary without pay, if the central committees wishes to appoint extra sets of judges and clerks in heavy voting wards of the city which always are slow In compiling returns, will be offered, it was decided at a meeting last night. People of Fayeltcville and Washington county have confidence in their banks and other financial institutions and there is very little hoarding going on in the city or county, according to a report of the local Lions chib committee. In line with the national drive against hoarding, a resolution was presented pledging the club to aid in the drive. Ten Years Ago Today (Northwest Arkansas Times, March 10, 1942) Ran on nearly, all automobile tire sales and the steadily growing use of.bicycles prompted the city council last night to instruct the mayor and the street committee to provide bicycle racks on the square. Plans for constructing bicycle racks, as discussed by the council, would favor that they be placed on sidewalks near the post office on the inside of the square. and with well- .innicured lawnt, lined both sides of the r. ad. * "This is Lookaway Point," Sally contributed.

Jack Dumont, in slacks and nothing at all above the waist, was serving as we approached, His tanned well-made body glistened with perspiration. Facing him across the net was a figure professional- looking In visorcd cap, white shorts and ankle socks. Dumont was pulling no punches with her. He tossed a ball into the air nnd banged it over with · speed and precision to please Pancho Gonznlcs. She cracked it right back, neatly-placed shot that caught Ihe corner of the court. Dumont, thick strong l|gs pounding, managed to gf t his racket on It But the lady murdered the return. Dumont, far out of position, never hnd · chance. M a r n e y Cravnth g r i n n e d . "Sweet player, Isn't she?" She wns, Indeed, · sweet plnyer. And It took me a minute or two to gel accustomed · to the lact that she was the languorous Eve Wheeler. "This mrprlseg me," I laid. Cravath nodded. "Eve'i * tur- prlslnf woman. She's very capable at quite e number of things, You wouldn't think M, though, from the way tht druptt heneU around." Cravath waved I hand, Indicating the pliyen. "I told tverybody to go ahead as usual. In spite of what happened last night, M ing around and brooding isn't ing to do poor Ames any good. "Whew!" Dumont pulled, coming over to the sidelines. "I'm not as young as 1 was." Cravath jammed a big fist gently into his ribs. "No. And you never were the player she Is." Eve strolled up, a sweater thrown casually about her shoulders now. "Hello, you two." Then, to Dumont: "Thanks for a nice game, Jack." Evo thrust her arm through Dumont's and we went up to the house, Cravath and 1 trailing behind them. My eyes, always where they shouldn't be, 1 suppose, made me very conscious of Eve's legs. They were long slender legs, the muscles seeming to flow like liquid beneath astonishingly youthful skin. Eve wasn't young by any means. But you'd never have known it from looking at her legs. The one person in the house who'd seemed physically Incapable of wreaking havoc on the Peacock Path palpably wasn't in the afternoon, I enticed Sally into my rented convertible. I drove it out through the swank gale-job pleisurably, nwarc of her alluring slimncss in tile scat beside me. But iwire too, somewhat less pleasurably, that 1 might have no business to tie drlv- ng anywhere. Still, this wns broid daylight. And Marston Cravath was very much a _man and one nlcrted, now, to danger at Windover. "I suppose," I said, turning east oward Ihe Sound, "that I couldn't lave wangled this unless it really were--ah, urgent business?" "Oh, I don't know," said Sally. 'You pass as a friend of mine. Something I latched onto in Ber- uida." We reached what neemed to It* a narrow neck of land jutting Into he Sound. Gnod-alicd houtae ·paced at comfortable interval*, WE were coming to · dead end. " I saw the round white tower of a little lighthouse at the tip of the Point. Just before it the road fanned out into a kind of semicircle. There was ample room to park. "Now," I said, "this urgent business." "What do you want to know from me, Jim?" She spoke as one cutting through preliminaries. "Routine stuff," I laid. "Whit I'm getting at is: anything you can give me about the backgrounds of your guests." "Who do you want first?" "It doesn't matter. Make it Eve Wheeler." The sudden tiny frown that flitted to her forehead and flitted away ai swiftly was unmistakable. "Eve," Sally uid patiently, "is Adrian S. Wheeler's widow." Well, I did know of Adrian S. Wheeler. He'd been * tycoon to confound tycoon-. Oil chiefly, but with fingers in many another profitable pie. "To hear Uncle Marney ind Uncle Jack tell' it, she was the slinkiest promtrotter of the golden twenties. According to my uncles, she commuted regularly to all the universities east of the Mississippi, "n demand she was," "I'm rjot surprised," I said, "It's a hearsay, of course," Sally's eyes clouded, "but Eve had · very glamorous time when the wit quite young. Then, things got rugged for awhile," "Go ahetd." "She'i been m a r r i e d three times," Sally told me. 'Tint, i long time ago, to some boy from Princeton. I don't remember hit name and I don't know the exict details. Rumor U that, after they'd been married about i yetr, he and Eve and a whole party went up to HIM tkl lodft In the Adirondack!. Some tine during that Ulil (I? rttot Ta Be Ce*ttn«e« and 9t ttALTH Thert ii »n «|r«e»bi» §tory going around about a conicientlou congrciiman, a freihman in tin HOUM, who went home last cum' mer and found that he cculd no' explain to his constituents the fabulous billions which he had just voted to appropriate. He was much troubled. It was embarrassing to let the voters see that he knew so little about 10 much public money But he is a good rnun, and concerned with more than the appearance of things. So he began lo reproach himself that he had not worked hard enough at the job to which he had been elected While he was feeling that \vay, he saw in the newspaper that the state university was offering a course in the federal budget. He was 'not too proud to learn,-an-J so he enrolled and went back to school to find out from the professor what he had voted for in Washington. There must be others, .iot only congressmen who must do the voting but also those who are ex- sected to write and talk iuout the budgot, lots of us that is to say, who are uneasy. On the one hand we fee! that it ought to be possible somewhere in the stupendous sums to save some money. ft just isn't likely that every last ieutenant (j. g.) and every colonel has foreseen and calculated accurately what is necessary to the military power of the United States. On the other hand, we are afraid to take the responsibility of cutting any particular item-lest it turn out later that the lieutenant (j. g.) and the colonel were right and that for want of that item the battle was lost. That is why the oyster forks, the ping pong balls, and the toenail clippers for dogs are such a godsend to us all. We can work off on them our passion for economy, and never have to worry that we shall be accused of having disarmed the United States. The most instructive lesson I ever had in the problem of economy was when the librarian of the university appeared before .. board of which I was it member to explain why he needed to build a new wing to house the hooks. There was a hard-boiled member of the board present who decided to sive the librarian a going-over. "You have several million books," he said sternly, "have you not?" "Yei, sir, »·« havt," replied th« librarian. "Can you deny, will you have the nerve to deny to'thi* board, that two-thirds of the books arc utterly worthless, and that no itu- dent, and not even tht molt crackpot of your professors, will 'ever open any of these millions of useless 'books on which you now want to spend million! of? dollan?" The librarian who seemed to be / standing up better than »ne might have expected said meekly: "No, sir, at least two-thirds of our boots are of no interest to anyone." Then he added:. "But the trouble, sir, is that I cannot think of any way of deciding which are tht books in our collection that are of no interest to anyone." This story contains, I believe, the true explanation of why the military budget is so enormous-and of why it would not be safe, without more knowledge than any- v one possesses now, to reduce H by any important sum. The reason the military budgets lave become so enormous is that defense establishment is trying .o prepare not for a particular kind of war but for many kinds of war. It is much cheaper to prepare for a particular kind of war in a particular place. What costs like all get-out is trying to have a Navy hat can fight all kinds of wars on the sea, under the sea, in the air, and on the land--and also an Air Force that can by itself win any globalor local war that can be magined--and then besides- all hat, an Army which can roll over nd j u m p over and annihilate any Army that might get in its way. Ever since the president decided uddenly to alter the basic Amerian strategy and to fight a land var in Asia, which we had ex- ircssly and deliberately decided .'e would not do, the Pentagon has een acting on the assumption that ou never can tell, that it must e prepared for all kinds of wars, "hat is what is making the whoe peration so very, very expensive. It is like going out shopping !·'" uy clothes for the winter, deter- lined to be the well-dressed mat . o matter whether the little wom- n decides to spend the winter on he beach at Miami, or skiing in Jorway, or hunting elephanti tai larkest Africa. ' Dear Mrs. Dix: Why don't parents teach their children good manners and respect for older peo- plle? My neighbors' children are very noisy, and when I called their mother the other day to ask her to keep them quiet, she hung up on me. If I say anything to the youngsters, they answer in a most impudent and impertinent manner. All the people on the block complain about them, so I'm not just being a crank. This seems to be a definite trend among children of today.- They are never corrected by their parents for lack of consideration toward their elders, and as for common courtesy, the parents, ap- aarehtly, have never even heard the words! ! . THALIA MARIE Answer: Although most people today deprecate the vale of good manners in children it is surprising to see their reaction when a really well-mannered child is encountered. No matter how liberal a person may be in his views on courtesy among the young, he is favorably impressed by a child who typifies good breeding and rearing. Sheer Lizlnrti Parents have a tendency to shrug off the impudence of their children by observing that good manners are so old-fashioned; actual- ly, the only reason they don't in- culate them in the young is sheer, unadulterated laziness. H dees take time »nd care to brin» children up carefully, ind far too many parents haven't the time or patience to put into the project. A child with a haphazard upbringing can no more become a well-adjusted adult than a similarly neglected puppy can be a fine dog. Many a man who'll spend hours training a hunting dog won't give five minutes to teaching his son to say "Please" or "Thank you." The most flagrant breach of good manners a child can commit also happens to the most widespread: a lack of any form of respect or consideration for his elders. The child who rises when an older person enters the room is all but extinct, as is the youngster who has learned to keep quiet while someone older is talking, Perhaps these were old-fashioned traits, but the fine people of today are those who were thus taught in their childhood. Of course, when a mother sets such a horrible example of behavior as abruptly terminating a telephone call by banging down the receiver, we know what to expect from' her offspring.' What parents forget is that the standards CONTINUED ON PAGE FIVE In Season Antwer to Pr«vioui Punl* ·OBBONTAL 2 Laud IBuebtll 7 Football ·eason 13 Astronomy mutt 1 Branching 4 Town in Anatolia 5 Insect eggs African muit antelopet 14 Graven image JgTM*2.« 15 French village '18 Spanish gentlemen 17 Town in Michigan U Dries ··Brown 10 Ideal state 29 Legal judgment 20.
