You can participate by addretilnf a postcird to Box 1R52, Washington, D. C.) W»»hln(lon--Three y«»rt «go if anyone hid tcld Senate old-timers that two freshmen eni- tora, Kerr of Oklahoma and Kefnuver of Tennet- ·ee, would be battling It out for the presidency in 1132, tht prediction would hive been called rldlculoui, ; Yet that's exactly whut is happening in Nebraska next Tuesday. Furthermore, in vltw of the need for new blood in the Democratic party, it's htalthy development. And ilhce the xenator from Tennessee hi« been more publicized than the senator from Oklahomtt, here -is · bird's- eye view of the likable, Bible-pounding Bob Kerr who now aspires to the presidency of the United States. Senator Kerr combines a number of rare at- tributtx.-Hc is at one and the same, time the most · pious, one of the most 'powerful, the most genial, arid probably the wealthiest member of the United Slates Senate. He also has « lot of courage--though some people call it g a l l . ' Whether you agree with Bob Kerr 'or not, you can't help liking him. You also have to respect his piety. The fact that he teaches · Baptist Sunday school is not. mere political window- dressing. He takes bin religion seriously. He also takes prohibition seriously, and Is one of the few senators who never serves alcoholic beverages at His table, . - · : , * ' * * The Sunday school teaching senator frnm Ok. Idhoma- has brazenly flouted the Senate's standards of ethics and good conduct. "Senate Rub 12 was set up by senators In'or- der to disqualify any member who has a direct pecuniary Interest In a piece of legislation. · Though the rule Is not compulsory, precedent has .made it customary. And, according to the Senate parliamentarian, it h a s ' b e e n - f o l l o w e d consistently for. many years. Thus, Sen. -Warren Aiistin of Vermont,* now ambassador to the United Nations, disqualified himself from voting on * talc bill because he had investments in tele. Senator Kerr, on Ihc other hand, not only Introduced the Knrr bill which would have had tho'effect of Increasing the price of natural gas .carried in Interstate pipelines, but became ils 'No. I lobbyist. He buttonholed senators, urged, cajoled and demanded that they vote for a bill which stood to make his company several hundred thousand dollars. Finally, nfter the bill was vetoed by his friend, the president, Kerr and *hc attorney for PHIlllps Petroleum,, ex-White House Counsel Clark Clifford, managed to lobby ruling through th* Federal Power Commission which accomplished the same price-hiking endt as the Kerr bill, . * * Yet the senator from Oklahoma had several million dollars of pecuniary Interest directly tied up In his bill to remove the Federal Power Commission's control over the price of natural gas. Kerr owns oil and gas lands valued nt * total of around one hundred million dollars. On this, he unrt his partner, who operate the Kcrr-Mc- Gcc Oil Industries Company, officially reported « IK4D gross Income of $14,1)30,150 with a net Income of $1,218,627. In 194a, their gross income WM IZ,5.18,(139. on which was piild an income tax of only $20.053--due to the generous oil depletion bencfltn given the oil compunies under thf federal tax laws. Kerr's company also has at least four contracts to soil nutural gas In interstate commerce, thus , Immediately bencfitln from the law he battled through Congress. One'is with Texas Gas Transmission Company, one with Southern Natural Oas, ,one with Trunkllnc Gas Supply, and one with El Paso Natural Gas. 'These records are all .on file with the Federal Power Commission. Yet during Senate debate, none of his colleagues challenged the senator from Oklahoma regarding the ethics of his conduct In lobbying for a bill which meant a small fortune to his company,- and which would cost Northern housewives nn estimated $508,- I'OO.OOO.a yenr In increased gas bills. Kerr shook his finger under colleagucs"noses, demanded Ihnt they vote "right," and made himself something of a nuisance; yet none of them ·sked why he did not nbide by Senate rule 12 and nbsialn from voting for his own pocketbook * * * Bob Kerr operates on the theory that If you keep quoting from the Bible often enough and have money and power enough, people will forget certain other things. And this is pretty much what has happened. When the RFC scandals were Investigated last year, the public heard much about a mink coat but nothing about Senator KPIT'S brother, Aubrey. Bob Kerr was sworn In as a U.S. senator In January, l»4». and didn't wall long to put his brother In the job of handling RFC law business In Oklahoma. Brother Aubi-ev took over in F«bru«ry, 194B--jus! one month later. Senators investigating the RFC last year turned up various interesting pieces of patron- ngc, but considerately overlooked--or failed to That Cat Still HM Claws remember--the HFC plum handed the Kerr family. Even President Truman has a kindly memory as far as the genial senator from Oklahoma is concerned. The president said not a Word when the senator and the president's old pal, Chairman Mon Wallgren of the Federal Power Commission, managed to reverse the presidential veto of the Kerr bill. But perhaps this was because the president was so grateful to Bob for being the one senator with courage enough to stand up and be counted in the fight over General MacArthur. Kerr took on MacArthur singlehanded at « timt when public opinion war. strongly for the general. That was the actual beginning of the current Nebraska primary. For it was then that the president first began talking about Bob Kerr as X vice presidential candidate--the real job to which the senator from Oklahoma aspires. Thirty Vein Ago Today FayettevUle Daily Democrat, March 29, 1922) An athletic association including Fayettevllle, Bentonville, Rogers, Sprlngdale and the University of Arkansas High School h«s been organized by the Fayctteville High School coach.'

One side of her face was a blotchy red. "I--I couldn't do i thing with her," she began, to Dumont. "She simply wouldn't listen." "Shut up!" Dolly wheeled on the nurse, green eyes blazing. "And get out of here, .you pussyfooting, rubbersoled hag. Jack Dumont, take your hands off me too. Or you'll get what she got." Dumont didn't heed the warning. He slid an arm around her waist, tried to turn her back toward the hallway. VDolly! You're making a fool of yourself." She spun like an ingry cat in the semi-circle of his arm. A hand flashed up. Vivid nails tore three red gashes in Dumont's cheek. Dumont swore involuntarily and pushed her away. He stepped back, whipping out a handkerchief. Dolly grasped the edge of the card table with both hands ind leaned over it. Her eyes were like green Ice. "Think you can stand up and face me, Eve Wheeler?" JWERY eye in the room raced to Eve. S.he sat very still and composed. "I don't know what you mean, Dolly," she said quietly. The table shook beneath Dolly's straining excited grip. "Well, I'll tell you.

Clearing and sunny the'rest of the year. Dear Miss Dix: My worry is my daughter. She is married to a xvonderful husband, who works hard and is a cood provider. They have one child, a year old. My daughter, however, is so obsessed with keeping her house in immaculate order that she is in a constant stale of irritation from overwork. Her husband owns a store, and hasn't much time to he home; when he is with her, she is continually complaining about t h e amount of work she has, yet she won't let up th* least bit. I'm afraid that her nagging, coming at-him when he, too, is tired from a hard day's work, will result in trouble between them. I live alone in my own house,, and »m perfectly content. I visit my daughter .frequently,, and would like to help, .but no one does work to please her. My son- in-law would like me tb live with them, but I prefer not to. It seems to me, since she makes ruch a project out of keeping a house, that she'd, be better off In an apartment. Mrs. M. N. T. Answer: You very accurately foresee the danger ahead if .your daughter continues to put housework before the welfare of her family. Many women have t h e same compulsion to maintain an apple-pie home at the expense of family relationships, and seldom do they change. Of course a smaller house, or an apartment, en* tails less work and would give a housekeeper more time for rest and relaxation. Husband Needs Peare When a husband returns home from a hard day's work, the thing he would most like to find is a quiet, peaceful home. Women, by this time, are pretty well educated to the fact that Daddy should not be met at the door with a tale of Junior's latest delinquencies. They have, not been so quick, however, In realizing that housework should be over--at least put aside--in order to give the breadwinner a peaceful evening. Thert is absolutely no virtue in a woman working herself to death just for the pleasure of basking in the limelighl of martyrdom. She neither deserves nor should receive sympathy. Furthermore, in spite of her own beliefs, she is j not a good housekeeper--and much less is she a homcmaker. A good, really efficient housekeeper keeps her home in good order, clean, tidy, without fanfare or exhaustion. The frantic scrubbing to which neurotic women are addicted simply indicates a fanatical obsession with one phase of housekeeping, while all the others are neglected. Maintaining a successful home, as I have said many, many times before, calls up every resource the modern woman has at hand. A successful housewife combines the best characteristics of cook, seamstress, decorator, nurse, secretary, treasurer, diplomat a n'd civic worker/Allotting to each job its own percentage of effort instead of spending all one's energy on a scrub brush is what makes a well-adjusted, balanced ^'o-nan of the house--a wife and mother who is really doing; a good job. You are right lo keep your own- home, and to turn down Ihe kind invitation to share your daughter's polished premises. You would never be at case in the house, and would yourself become an object of daughter's irration. Continue your visits and lend a hand wherever possible;, more than that I'm afraid you cannot do.
