NCMTHWIST ARKANSAS TUMI,**·*·**· ArfwmM..WMMMMy, Mw* If,|ftl;, Democrats To Use Conlmuing Peace As Election Talking Point .; B7 JAMES MABLOW Wa«hingtdn-yP)-President Truman', if he runt again, has laid down the twin reasons on which he'll »ik for reelection: prosperity and avoidance of world war. In hu almost seven years in the White House Truman has been belabored with criticism, which ht tiys he shrugs off as an old story. He points to history and says it happened to other presidents. Asked to summarize the most Important' achievements of hi! administration, he says: "We have prevented . a third world war. And we have kept the American economy on an even keel. The Russians had the idea that after 1948 we would explode and then the Russians could have K h»d the world to themselves. We have managed to keep that from happening." The statement is in a new book about the - president, published yesterday. The author, William Hillman, newspaperman and radio commentator, had a number of see us how... for the « NOW | COSTS NO MORE thin M rfnnr wit* htiht iAlwtyttftdy, at the turn of a tap--Mil the hot ; water you want.

It is to broad it would enable thenv.to face in many directions, pointing to high employment as an example of prosperity, and explaining . many actions of the administration as part' of a broad policy to avoid all-out war; the Atlantic pact, arms for Europe, the" stalemate in Korea, and even high taxes to pay for the arms and economic help. In spite of the fact that he occasionally has strong fits of anger, the president has, or believes he has, a pretty calm and philosophic view of hi--self snd history. Hillman says Truman has made a special study of the criticisms flung at other presidents, and quotes him as saying:' "I don't let these things bother me for the simple reason that I am trying to do the right thing anci eventually - the facts will come out. I'll probably be holding a conference with Saint Peter when that happens. , "I never give much weight or attention to the brickbats.that are thrown my way. The people that cause me concern are · the good men who have to take the brickbats for me. . . . "Our American political situation is bout the same.from generation to generation. . . . I walk and- swim and worry very little. I appoint people to responsible positions to worry for me. You have no idea how satisfactory that policy is."

Especially since that economy cutback on mail deliveries in 1950 has it been a nightmare. Stories of letters traveling at snail's pace-and a lazy snail at that--are a dime a dozen. That line 'on the facade of New York's Post Office about postmen defying the elements in : the 'swift" completion of their task may have been justified- once. It's the bunk today. New York, we know, has no corner on the inefficiency, the red tape, the overtone of politics and the hampering regulations which this study revealed. .The comparison of conditions here and in London is especially enlightening. The London Daily Telegraph helped us out by;malling tests of the came type we used here. The slowest London letter was only seven hours in transit. The slowest here took 96 ",i hours. London's fastest letter was five and one-half hours en route. Our best time was 13 hours. · ' What Is particularly griping ibout this differentia) is that the British post office operates at a profit. This country's postal deficit grows morfe staggering year by year. A lion's share of the blame rests on Congress for having tied the hands of the postmaster general by blind orders for economies and by regulations forcing the hiring of temporary employes. The tragedy of the situation is that ill-conceived restrictions arc resulting in tremendous dollar and cents losses to the country's economy. Letters vital to business are hours and even days too long in transit. What is heeded is a drastic cleanup of the whole postal operation. N.Y. World Telegram Heiiy Schedule Ahead For Quaen Juliana Of The Netherlands In YisH To UnHed States In April By RUTH COWAN ' Washington-OT-If you think your job is tough, consider that of Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. Suppose within three weeks you had to address Congress and make nine other major speeches-all different--In a language other than your native tongue. Suppose within three hours and 45 minutes you had to stand up and in a formal speech hold the attention of say, Sen. Tom Connally, Sen. Joe McCarthy, Vice President Barklcy, Speaker Rayburn, and then rush to three receptions at which yo' would shake at least 3,000 hands. When Mme. J. II. Van Holjen, wife of The Netherlands ambassador, outlined to women reporters the program scheduled for Juliana during her three-weeks visit, April 2-22, in this country, Betty Beale of the commented: Washington Star, "I hope your queen is in good health. This program is rough." "She is," replied Madame Van Roijen.'Thcn laughing, she added: "She has just been skiing in Austria, so she should be in good condition." ' * . '· . The queen, her husband Prince Bernhard, Foreign Minister D. U. Stikkcr, and her p?rty of 11 others are due here by plane April 2. Tht royal couple, the foreign minister and three others will.be guests for three days of 1 President and Mrs. Truman in the White House. ' , · ' She will receive full military honors at the airport on her arrival. Then follows a parade into town for a ceremony at the District of Columbia Building to receive "the key to the city." From then on, until she leaves Washington for a cross-county tour, the queen will be on Ihe go almost constantly--Ml. Vernon, Arlington National Cemetery, diplomatic receptions, dinners, luncheons, news conferences, speeches, visits to wounded servicemen back from Korea.

International From the People · To the Editor: Years ago a friend gave us three clumps of daffodils, o.ie of the early single yellow ones, one of the double ones that come just as the single ones arc leaving, and one of the paper white or Poet's narcissus, that come later. 'Now we have "millions" of then 1 . Each year when we could, we have divided .them, and replanted them in'the yard, in the woods, by the pool, and along the bridle path. This year the first one bloomed on January iO. Now, after seven weeks, these are about gone,' and the double ones are blooming. Each day I have gone out and gathered armloads of them, and each next day there would be as many more. We shall hjve them for several weeks, yet. . Without them, spring would be less ' than spring to me., Never having heard a name for them, I have named the early yellow daffodils^ the Miss Willie Dcanne, after the friend who gave them to me. These early daffodils give the most for the least care of any flower that I know. They store up in their bulbs the warmth of the autumn, sun, and before the sun is fully able to warm us himself again, they give it back to us in their blooms; They do not mind the cold. I have often. gathered them from underneath deep snow, or when they were stiff with ice. Anyone in this locality could grow 1 them. FayetteviHe could be made to glpw with them. In June, when it is time to dig them, I could give a clump of them to anyone who would f ome with .a shovel and basket, and perhaps a shovel-full of earth to f i l l . u p the hole from which the bulbs were dug. I could give the simple instructions for their planting and care. 1 ' · · · ' 1 should Hke to do '.his, for then, in a few years, when 1 came to town, they would be there to welcome me; and they would be a welcoming sight to other visitors to FayetteviHe.
