The CAA station at Drake Field, which gets Its weather forecasts from the United States Weather Bureau was not informed of .the coming storms, and as a result dispatched planes almost Mo the path of. the tornado. Had the military advisory been available at;tho CAA station,! to which civilian''fliers turn; for their information and advice, : the daiT- · ger to the pilots would have been greatly lessened.. It is unthinkable that a rule so inflexible that it could not be broken in: case of ·n Impending disaster, so th«t liven might be saved, is in force. There Is no occeMon for the military to be so ap»rt from civilian life In this country at thMlmetrmt the two can not work together on thliws of this kind.

THE WASHINGTON Mtrry-Go-Round ·f DREW PKAMOI Washington -- Senatorial colfeaguei flgura there li mora than meets the eye behind the $10,-. 000 traiUabtloh between Senator Brewiter of ; j, Milne and Henry Grunewald, undercover lobby- 1 Isi, wire-tap'expert, and tax fixer. . " '. Thei senator from Maine" appeared briefly be- fort the King subcommittee hut week and teiti- ;fled,he. had paid Grunewald 110,000 In order to cover up two. $5,000 contributions given to 'the primary campaigns of Senators-Nixon'of California and Young of North Dakota. Grunewald, Brcwster claimed, had served as the conduit to pass the mney on to their campaigns. . However, Senators Nixon and Young Knew nothing about the deal and were sore a* blazes when Brewiter sprung hli out-of-the-blue testimony. ' ' · ··'.. · ' · · . ' . . He was not asked why ho had saved Grunewald from a' contempt citation by the Senate; or · why he had used 'Grunewald in a wire-tapping deal; or whether he, as'chairman of the Republican Committee On Senatorial Elections made It a practice to Ignore the rules of his party and contribute to one Republican's nomination at ngnlnst another Republican. Furthermore, Brewster will be asked none of these questions later. It's against the rules of the club. Members of Congress just don't embarrass each other. ' ' i Other witnesses can be grilled, dny after day. They cnn be insulted and badgered on the witness stand. They can be thrown into jail If they rcfuie to answer questions. But the unwritten law of Congress is that you don't aik embarrassing questions of a fel- low'member of .Congress. The King committee has done an excellent job on other matters, but ' It won't vlojat* this rule. ' · ; ' · · · . · * * *·· , : However, since the public Is entitled to know all the facts regarding the men who write tha laws which the public has to follow, It Is altogether fair to point to some highly significant facts In the relationship between Senator Brewiter and mystery-man Henry Grunewald ' which the King committee passed over. Grunewald, who,hat refused to name the aource of about a Quarter of a million dollars, wai such a familiars person around Brewster'i ,-. office that Brewster and staff called him "Henry." , He wai also on familiar terms' with Pan American Airways'; for whom he admits "checking" telephone wires. Brewrter also happens to be close to the giant Pan American Airways combine--In fact, has done so many favors for them that he Is somc- tlmei called "the senator for Pan American." - , . In 1948-47, Brewster Wai 1 pushing his "chosen · Instrument" bill to abolish .competition bftween ' different U.S; airline* overseas,:''putting all of them in the hands of one company instead. Pan American wanted this bill passed, was lobbying vlgoroualy for It, figured Pan Am'would be the "chosen instrument" to handle all U.S. air traffic overseas. But Tram-World. Alrllnn, headed by Howard Hughe*, was opposed. Hughes figured that under . the Brcwsttr bill TWA would a* amalgamated with Pan American. H* favored free American competition. Brewster, whose business was to legislate, not negotiate, private builneu deals, made an · amazing'approach to Hughes, a»ked him to sell out to Pan American. Hughes refused. * * * ' . . , ' . . r But Brewster was 'also chairman--In 1947-' Of the powerful Senate Investigating Committee, ? fornierly under Sen. Harry Truman. And with th« ^Republicans controlling Congress In 1947, Briwiter began a probe of Howard' Hughei. Many people felt that It had all the'earmarks of a blackmail probe to force Hughes to do business with Pan American Airways. 'At about this time, Brcwster also had the Washington police tap the telephone wires of Howard Hughei and his attorneys at a Washington hotel. Most of this came out during the wire-tap Investigation by the Senate District of Columbia Committee In the summer of 1050. This was where Grunewald'wai voted a contempt citation for refusing to answer questions, and where Brcwster saved him from going to jnil. ,:.-The amazing thing about the wire-tap on Hughes' telephone was that It was done by the Washington police, with Brewster and Gruno- wald operating In the background. The police officers who applied the tap and .listened, in testified that reports went to Grunewald. They were also Instructed to listen especially for information about airplane deals, The use of .these Washington policemen occurred in a free democracy, not In a police state such as. Russia or Argentina. And the man who got them assigned to the Job was none other than the senior senator from Maine. * * * Brcwstcr first called U.S. Attorney Morris fay, and asked for the loan of Lt. Joe Shimon. Ffty refused to cooperate. Brewster then went direct to Chief of Police Robert Barrett, since resigned under fire, and asked for the use of Lieutenant Shimon, who was the expert wire- tapper of the police «quad. Later, a Senate committee under Matt Neely of. West Virginia heard testimony from Brcw- ster's secretary that she had paid expense money to Shimon.: A policeman also said that Shimon exhibited $1,000 just received from n man fitting the appearance ot -'GnmcwUd. But Grunewald himself nt first ducked the hearings, and later TheyTl Do It Every Time -- By Jimmy Hatlo IrlQJ STR-WBOSS '(6 PMOJlMQ HIS SWEETMEAT-.. HIS ) HOH'/feEXXJ, B4RS-NO WAIT/* /MINOTC-BR lDCULATE WHEN I 60 OUT TO -OJ/WOUT- Look-No Hands! dragged In by the FBI, refused to answer pertinent questions. ' So the Senate committee recommended that he be cited for contempt. Plovvevcr, his friend Brcwster saved him. . First, Brewster. got Senator McCarthy, a member, of the investigating committee, to block ; a vote. Later, -when Chairman Ncely called a special meeting' and after the committee voted 7 to 1 to cite Cirunewald, Brcwstur buttoiilioled GOP Senator Hcndrickson of Now Jersey, pcr- auaded him to prepare a minority report whitewashing the entire wire-tap scandal including his pal, Henry Gvunewnld.. ... Brcwstcr even went to the extreme length '.W promising Hcndrickson a place on the coveted 'Senate^Judlciary Committee If he would spear- . head the- whitewash. Finally Hcndrickson yielded. , These 'are some of the things the King committee did not touch on, but which the public needs -to know about in sizing up the $10,000 payment by the senator from. Maine to mystery.- · man Grunewald. . . fce+iwti Gel^ Stanley McMichael,' author of How to Make Money in Real Estate, knows an operator who owned a loft building, a marble yard with dock privileges, a factory site and a summer garden, all of which he proposed to swap with another man who owned a row of tenements, a small ·subdivision,- an abandoned limn kiln and a farm. "He assumes a $20,000 mortgage on the loft building," explained the first man to his wife, "and I take over a second mortgage on the tub- division. Get me?" "I guess so," , responded the wife wearily, "but if you've got al the details so 'cleverly worked out, what's holding up the deal?" "Well," he said, "I sign nothing till he gives me four dollars in cash!" * *. * Herb Shriner, the droll Hoosicr monologist, recalls a.lady in his old neighborhood who had a .mighty big brood of children. "She finally stopped propagating," surmises Herby, "because she was running out of names--to call her husband." * * * A young man graduated with every honor in sight from one of those schools in high pressure salesmanship .conducted by big insurance companies, and Imbued with vigor and all the gimmicks he had learned, called on his first real prospect. What's more, he sold a whopping big policy. The company, however, was not pleased. It appears that in order to close the deal, he had talked the client to death. * * * · When Sam Hlmmell, the genial paper magnate, decided to attend a nudist convention, he made a thorough job of it. On the way to the camp he even stripped his gears. * * * When David Dempsey learned that this dally, feature Is now being carried in papers in Eng-' land, the Philippines, and Japan he commented, "Distribution certainly follows the gag."

Like a sport. Even told .rue to forget about it. Naturally I won't do that." Well, it must be great to be In a position to laugh on* SO G's. And Evi Wheeler undoubtedly was. "Good," I said. "At least you Ikran't lose a customer." And now 4hat he had Eve oil his mind, I (Meed him to give me a few minutes. He grunted that it was very late, but came-on in to the study. I went straight to the point. "I want a check-up on Ames Warburton's movements," I told htm. "From the time he left the office till he got down here that d«y." ". . That was the way I put it. As » matter ot fact, I envisioned a check-up that would go a lot further. "Sure," Crnvath said, "go on up to New York and do what you like. You don't have to baby-sit with me day and night. I'm beginning to think that's nil foolUli- n«ss, anyhow," "I don't," Ht (hot m« a hard direct look. ·You think we're not flnlalMd with Ittli thing?" "I'm Inking nit fhancet.

I sat on in the study for a while I leaned back in my chair, lit cigarct and stared at the .cups photographs, et al, which told the saga of Crayath's athletic ability It was one of the best things I've ever done. Cravath had switched on bui one light. That threw a subdued radiance, glinting so'...y off the silver and bronze of cupf, Dlaqucs and medals, highlighting the glossy prints of the photographs. But because of the peculiar way in which its beam slanted, one item in particular was outlined in bold relief. The thing was literally screaming at me--and for once Orth, the dumb dick, got the cotton out of lis'ears. H I was right, I'd put together chance remark and a lucky Idea and made them spell M-U-RD-E-R. But I was still a million miles from a proof. I went to bed that night morally sure that I knew the killer of Ames Warburton. But just as morally sure that I couldn't do a hing about that clever and able iperator. · · · HPHIS ftllow Dick Harrison Is a colorless little man upon whom he average Individual wouldn't waste a second look.

After that ht Questions And Answers Q--Why docs wild rice have to be harvested every day? , A--Wild rice is difficult to harvest. The seeds ripen continuously throughout' the fall months and drop'into the mud as soon as they ripen. Gathering wild rice requires daily harvests. Q--Where did grapefruit originate? A--Apparently in Malaysia; The first grapefruit tree was found in the West Indies, and no one is sure just how it originated from its ancestors, .variously called the pummelo or shaddock. It may have been either a mutation or a hybrid. · Q--Is the metric system commonly used in Great Britain? A--Great Britain and the United States are the only civilized countries which do not commonly use the metric system. remarked: ."This will involve considerable time and legwork." · * * ' Tf/HICH, I knew, was his dellcat* " way of pointing out that it would cost considerable cash: I reassured him on this point. ' "I thought you always took taxis," I said. "But, 'skipping that, money may be your object. It isn't my client's. The big thing here Is to keep this as private as possible. It I'm barking up the wrong tree, and any of these peo- P,le get adverse publicity-without a good reason, there will be a bigger arid better mufder. Cravatb will build it around me." "Well, how do I send in my stun?" "You bring it to me, here. And you don't call, me at Windover. I call you in New York, see how you're doing, and make a date if you think you've got anything im- jortant. Now how long will it be before I give you a ring?" ' ... He squinted. "Three days, say. Looks like I'm going to have to run all over New York." "All right," I said. "Catch the next train back and start 'running." · ' He left me without another wtird. To illustrate how unob- ruslvcly he got out of there--our solicitous waiter, noting empty glasses, came over presently. With one eye on the door of the men'a oom and the other on the im- lotent containers, he asked if we'd tavc two more of the same. I said no, just one, my friend had gone. The waiter went away, looking luzzled. - . · · I drove home slowly. It ,was ccoming clearer to me every minute that I'd thrown a clrcum- tantial web around · particular jwrson. But the ends ot the web weren't meeting. There wai on* Hal assumption In my 1 mind which needed verification, or ».hejr ever would meet. That vcrlflca- on seemed utterly impossible to et, under the conditions prevall- ng.

It is unthinkable and hard to visualize. It is always a bit heartening to see humanity rise to the help of their fellow passengers in distress and disaster. "Our" own community,' I understand, has. contributed approximately $4,000, which is sizable for any day's run. The radio'station did a noble job, and the citizens .were Most responsive. \ · " , I . The human race is always an X quantity.. I pondet over and over, but you can count n its goodness and jfenerpsi- ;y in the face of real heed. When it fs of the fariety when humans are helpless to know and defend themselves, the response is always very, very generous. The Red Cross takes on new ralue and we are surely thankful for the agencies and persons who serve, those who rive. ^ Mineral Springs The outlying regions manage to interest, me when the own and city leave me cold. The way our early settlers ived appeals 'to me above gadgets. The · f{replace and andle, the wood pile and cel- ar, the ice house, home made ce box, the broom in place of 'auum cleaner, all bespeak lardiness and industry, econ- omy and ingenufty to me. I will make a slight bow to electric lights and good roads --they do -win* my . approval. And I guess I'll have to vote for autos, but I hat* to. This past week we, Mr. and Mr*. Ted Wylie and Mr. J. D. Fordj were .conveyed :by Mrs. Brpiynf^]d,-;i|tardjr~eoul, to Mineral "Sprmgg. I:-can hear most of you saying, Where is Mineral Springs? Well, this place is about six or. seven miles east of West Fork up in the beautiful, eternal hilte, ' and seems to beaf marks of having been the region of early setters.-This particular occasion was a communfty Improvement Program, and a few routine matters. But the . dinner'and the socialibility as per usual claimed me. I was intrigued with the -folks, the way the women had rehabili- ' tated with minimum expense the school house, the wonder- fuj fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, cakes', pies, eggs, beets,-and th» best coffee imaginable, (like my Grand- . mother used to boil). After the program was over and we were about ready to adjourn, a man stepped in the door with a great, big platter of golden brown fried chicken. Some, one had been late,- but sent it on neverthe-. less. Well it was too tempting, here and there we took a piece and some fine lady wrkpped me up a package^; ir)d I ' brought it home and-rhyyfam- ity who pose as judges/ supreme of fried chicken/'; pronounced it the best they : ever tasted, so I lay it to hills and gravel and being caught, killed and fried without any gad-. sets. Dear.Miss Dix: We have' just lOved to a suburban town from he city. I urn finding it very diffi- to make new friends, as most f the people around here have nown each other for years. I'm a ophomore in high school.. After chool I have nothing, to do but sit bme and study or read. ; My mother taya she'a tired? of my oping, but.I do mils 'Ay'friends n the city and don't know what o do with myself here. Have you ny suggestions? Vivian Answer: It does often take a llt- e time and patience for one to reak into a new and already es- ablished "crowd,", but it certain- Y is not the hopeless task you lake it. Your schoolmates 'are just ·ailing to see if you measure up ' their standards before accepting ou as one of themselves. In the icantime, I have a few pointers lat may help. Proficiency in four lajor fields o r f personal endeavor ill soon bring you all the friends nd dates you could possibly hope or. Here they are: Take the four itters that spell G-I-R-L! Let ach fcne remind you of a trait ou must acquire, and perfect, hese are the things you must do: Jroom, Interest, Relax, Liven! Not too difficult an assignment, is it?. · Appearance Comes First Groom: Ydur appearance, of course; is the first thing people notice about you, and from it they can form the most amazing conclusions. If you happen to be an habitually untidy person, you'll be immediately marked taboo with particular peoble. So you begin by paying meticulous attention to the way you look. Your hair must. be clean, lystrous, shining, and arranged simply 'and tidily. If you use make-up, go easy. Don't plas- . ter color on cheeks that nature has already tinted with a glowing" pink, nor waste (obi of lipstick on youthfully red .Tips. Be «ure your clothes: arevilways ipbtlefli and pressed, your'shoes' shlned, and heels straightened. Don't go in for extremes In anything, especially .when in school. -V : Interest: Now you have attracted the attention, and approval, of your* schoolmates by a well- scrubbed and shining appearance. They begin to notice you and- make conversation. Show your interest in them. .Don't try .to impress them with your life, in the ·city, the glamorous friends you knew, frequented. Be curious, but not obnoxiously inquisitive, about the activities of your new acquaintances, and about the school. Even though the goings-on may seem "small .town" to you, this is, after all, where you live "and local affairs'will be important in your new life.. . Relax: Now that you are receiving some'attentions from youn. neighbors, don't be flustered by them. Accept any invitations extended to you in 'a gracious manner, with no false hesitancies about not knowing whether you're free on a certain night or not. Even though some of thu boys and girls may seem boring to you, be nice to them and accept any overtures CONTINUED ON PACE FIVE Screen Star Answer to Previous Puul* " HORIZONTAL 9 Dry 1,8 Screen star " Italian coins 2 Interstices 3 He abducted Helen'of Troy 4 Hopelessness 5 Princes 22 Laminated" JP me . , · rocks 7 Insect eggs 23Cry 9.English river 2 4 Branches 26 Burden 27 Units of reluctance 28 Station (ab.) 29 Royal Geographic A r l d ' 5 Mariners 9 Responds to treatment 1 Uranus . 2 Talmud commentary 3 Small bristle 4 Unwrought Inkle (pi.) 8 Promontory 7 Viscera 9 Tatter 2 Lubricant! 3 Instrumental duets 6 So lone (Fr.) 48 She ii a icreen and radio -1 Until of length 2 Epicure JShelia--.
