THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·r DREW KAMOU Washington--For som* time 11 hae been r r-iyiitery at to why the Navy, with carrier-base/ planes off the Korean coast, did not participate In the tough job of combating the Reds' Jet-pro- polled MIGt Instead of leaving It to the Air Force. Navy pilots are among the best and m«t courageous, In th« world, but except In a'few cases, they have been kept a saf« distance from tht MlGt. . This column Is now able lo give the answer. The Navy ha» not been able to dev*lop a Jet plane able to stand up against'the Russian MIGs, and because o( Army-Navy rivalry, has been unwilling lo accept an Air Force type engine with which to do the Job. · This is no reflection on the thousands.of Navy airmen who have been itching to get into the Korean Jet fighting, but rather on the brass hats at IhJ! top who have been unwilling to accept the fpirlt of the unflcation act. Investigation of'this rivalry also reveals shocking .wasle, extravagance and Inefficiency, which once again seems to result from lack of unification. Today the Nsvy's Bureau of Aeronautics Is spending $50,0*6.57 each for a Pratt-Whitney jet engine, the J-48-P-0, for use in Jet fighter planes, when It could buy a better Allison en- gin., the J-33-A-I6 for only $31,000. ' * * * The Allison Jet job weighs a little less than the Pratt-Whltney, Is a low-pressure engine, and has been glveh an ok by the naval air test center at -Patuxent, Mel., whereas th'e Pralt-Whit- ' ney engine has not passed "Inspection. On or about February 25, Paluxeht reported to the Navy's Board of Inspection and Survey in Washington that the Pratt-Whltney J-48 was "unacceptable." Despite tjils, a tot^l of 2,435 of the Pratl-Whltney engines already have been ordered, and will cost a current price of », r )0,046.57; while only 201 Allison engines were ordered at .-. current price of $31,000. The extra cost to the taxpayer is $48,000,000. , Meanwhile, the J-48 built by Pratt-Whltney flies 150 miles per hour slower than the Hussion MIGs, In jet warfare, of course, speed Is the reason Navy pllola are sitting on the sidelines off the Korean coast today, . . Navy officials, when asked why Pratt-Whlt- ney was given a contract for a more expensive engine when Allison was producing a better engine for onc-lhlrd less, had no comment. ,-" It Is known, .however, that one of tiic Navy's civilian engine experts, Vernon Havnes, has bben protesting vigorously Inside the Navy and has h*en argulni; for the Allison engine. Mr. 'Hsynfs. being a civilian, presumably is not affocted by Navy-Air Force rivalry.' Scores of other younger naval officers also foel strongly that the Navy should accept the Allison engine. They point out, however, (hat If the Navy ordered the Allison jet job, It would be macje under Air-Force suncrvlslon at Indian- anolls, since the Allison plant Is under Air Force "cognizance." , On th other hand, Pi-alt-Whltncy at Ea?t Hartford, Conn., Is under Navy "cognizance," which means that Prall-Whitncy is one of the plants Under Navy Jurisdiction. Younger nnval officers and the pilots who have to fly the planes believe that, the rhlef reason the brass hats ordered 2,435 Pralt-Whit- ne.Y cn'tflrjcs at Jin extra cost to the taxpayer of »4I,000,000 Is because the Air Force had Jurisdiction at the Allison plant, and the Navy takes prld* In develonlne its own engines In factories und*r Its cognizance. · . ·· -* * ,* Pratt-Whltney has built some A-l engines, but at present the Navy is still tinkering with tl;6 Inadequate J-48, which the brass hats seem determined to force clown the throats of Navy pilots. Already $1,772.000 has been spent to put this engine In acceptable shape. At first the engine had turbine blade failures then screen failures which mixed up oil and gas inside the engine. On January 17 the enelne was grounded becausp of burning on take-off, a fuel noijle having broken Inside the combustion Camber. The.engine was sent back to Pratt- Whltney for repairs, following which Navy testers discovered Indolent bearing failures, and later four flan)e-outs during the testing program, In all, nine defects were discovered by Navy testers during the tests nt Paltixnnt. As of this writing, the cngint is conditionally ungrounded for nncration over land only, while Prntt-Whlt- nr-y Is working on a shotgun icnltor to throw magnesium Into the engine' »t the start In order In nrcvelit flame-outs. A flame-out on a Jet nialnc means that the flame goes out--which is the equivalent of engine stalling. Meanwhile Navy pilots who have to fly these enslnei goint out that the Allison engine'has bed. almost none of,this trouble--even though it Is built under Air Force supervision * * » _ Finally Wright Parkins, Pralt-Whltney .production engineer, told the Navj: "Glv6 rnc one of those Allison engines and I'll show you they're no good. So the Navy shipped two All'isoiis uij to Pratt-Whitncy, where thsy were tried out in a Grumman plane. This was most unusual, since the Navy maintains Its own testing centers at Pntuicent at a cost of.$4,000.000 a year, and the Navy's own .lest Is supposed to be the final word--not the lest of a private manufacturer. However, Navy They'll Do It Every Time By Jimmy Hatlo MAKE A OATS. MTU HQ?

The results of this" test, even by Pratt-Whlt- ncy, were so'satisfactory that ono PraU-Whilncy engineer v/as lair enough to call the Allison representative in Washington, nnd admit the superiority o£ the Allison engine. NaVy brass hats, however, arc still trying lo figure out ways ot justifying their Judgment in choosing an engine which costs one-third more than one built under Air Force supervision, and of which they ordered 2,135 at an extra cost to the taxpayer ur 548,000,000. fcewteUGebl William Faulkner, winner ot the Nobel Prize for literature, raises mules in his spare lime on · his plantallon in Mississippi. One of his most efficient field helpers suddenly showed on alarming slump in his work. A revivalist filled him with such religious fervor that lie gave up cuss. ing altogether, and his mule driving suffered accordingly. . . ; . - . One summer afternoon, with the temperature hovering about l i d degrees in Ihe shade, Faulkner saw the convert's team of mules stop dead in Iheir tracks, while Ihe convert grew apoplectic with rage. Finally he hollered, "You blankcly blank blankety no-account critters! Ef you don't get eoin', you blank so-and so . . ." Then he added in a lower tone, "as I used lo sfly afore I got religion." Nicholas Monsarrat, author of the Book-of- the-Monlh Club novel, '.'The Cruel Sea," sounds like a man who has liari a lol of experience with Ihe "weaker" sr.x. "Arguing with a woman" maintains Monsarrnt, "is like trying to read a newspaper in a high wind." * * + Publisher William Slonnc hired a new secretary just before he flew to London for n scouting trip. The secretary was told, "If anybody calls Mr. Sloane, just say he'i.ione to the United Kingdom." The next day a man did call, and tht secretary said, "I'm sorry, but Mr.' Sloan* is dead." : * * * .

"Leaving Eve?" I said. Sally let long Inshes droop over eyes like little gray clouds, "This doesn't do much for my ego. James Just something to pump, eh?" "This Is a business trip." I snld "Charming frankness. But . . . oh, well, let's talie Uncle Jack, And h« shouldn't tnkc long. I'm terribly fond of Uncle Jack, Jim. But, to bt absolutely honest, Uncle Jack Is a perennial sophomore." She Com- presied her lips, then added, "and so I i Uncle Marney." "You mean?" "Oh," Sally laughed, "they tot their ihttpiklns, all right, am-not that I'm to darn cl«vr or mature or anything--cut, to my way of thinking, neither of them ever graduated f r o m Vale.

I can't keep from puzzling a bit as to who will run this township, county and state in tht next shift. Our own county slate is terrifically important to us,,and I'm a bit too 'mature" to know the answers as I used to think I did, but now I only know I ought to and don't. I worry as to governor, county judge.. University president, aldermen, and-.coui.ty treasurer and so on. The primary course in each and every group should be to teach th* populace to VOTE, low to, when to, and for whom, and to.never consider t superfluous. Voting is the ifr blood'and the one performance that properly describes "Democracy" and ;auses it to function, and we are pi-one to let it sort of lapse inless there is a big fight on. .here is.'or should be, always t blg ; fight on'to choose or teep the wisest, and best at ur command. The privilege f each one having a vote is ardinal virtue ahd life blood f democracy. This coming year will call r our best attention in ioice and voting, from our resident of the U. n i t e d tates, governor of our state, idge' of'^our county, on hroujrh. This section, the South, as inherited new and great- · privileges than ever before, id therefore duties in this egard are greater, We- are .ast becoming the area of ost raprd development in industry. I just read in the Readers Digest: An estimated 14 per cent of all U. S. industry now lies in the Southeastern United States. Among the . South's advantages- are cheap electric power, natural gas, and easy climate, lowered freight rates, Now \ve need not be too cocky, for Canada and up noiih are striking new finds in oil and power, but the South fs in a very advantageous cycle just now, so let's take advantage. In order to make ourselves known and felt we must let voting be one privilege to be exercised and never overlooked. . ·y MftMTA MINNOW Our Beauty The natural beauty of this irea strikes me so strongly that.I believe we should eon- serve it, and with more diligence. I will never cease to re?ret the beauty we l e t ' go down the stream oni.College Avenue. I believe a committee to pass on projects as they arise as to the desirability and beauty would be^ verv worth while. · ·; Two or three councilmen could be designated to pass on projects, or an entirely separate board, savingr! those of worth. Also when Unsightly projects -'ar.e to be; handled, again, they could serve as to plan... It is easy to minimize the natural beauty of. our environs. · Our entrances to town froni all directions are worthy of .atten- troh and at the moment they are not equal: to the' potentialities.

' News Item Vatican City - (AP) - Pope Pius XII urged today- that more of the world's'goods be given to the needy. There is an "intolerable contrast between immoderate luxury and poverty that is sometimes shameful and always, heartbreaking," he said fn his annual Lenten speech to Rome's pastors and preachers in the Vatican's Consis- . torial Hall. : . - "What han been done to lessen . . . this contrast?" the Pone asked. ' ' " He recalled he had urged men of Italian Catholic Action to form a "granite front" against movements corrupt- in? economic and social life. "Doubtless success cannot be won in a day," he said, "but, it fs necessary to go to work ' immediately and push ahead with all effort." The Pope referred to his' speech of February 10 asking Romans to Tead a crusade for a worldwide Christian renewal. The Pope's comments so truly express the state of being as to the "intolerable contrast between .immoderate- luxury and poverty that it becomes shameful and always heart-breaking." ..--· ·A proper sense of the Value of money and the world's heeds are cardinal traits of Christ's religion. To overlook values is at least "shoddy," if I may say. Dear Miss Dix: My husband eeply resents me trying to make ny older girl mind. She is 11/2 and ·ery spoiled. I'm afraid jf 1 don't xcrcise some discipline now she'll 'C very difficult to handle later. I m 20 and. have been married hree years. V. A. S. Answer: Perhaps you are expecting tod much from an 18- month-old baby. While 'it is true that she should be taught to mind, disciplining can be ·overdone. You have your hands full with two babies so close together; both you and your husband need patlenc? to bring them up carefully. Bead a good book on baby care and see just how much you should expect from your daughter. Don't strive for perfection at the expense of the family's heallh and Happiness.
