Leader of the revolt i« Secretary of Defence Bob Lovctt who, in a recent cabinet tncclinfi, virtually said that he was not going to fill out the questionnaire. "As you know, I'm a businessman and a financier," l^ovtlt told tht cabinet in substance, "I have no secrets I would keep from you, Mr. President. But this questionnaire goes into in- timatt details regarding my business which could bt of grtat value to my competitors. "And ttie man who is asking me to f i l l it out (referring to Newbolri Mnrrls) is an attorney in tht samt city (New York), perhaps w i t h clients who are in competition with mine. How do I know that i n t i m a t e details of my business w i l l not f i n d their way to olberji?" Meanwhile, in the Deftnsc Department, the War Production Board and such agencies us the National Production Board which have borrowed many experts from industry, the revolt against Newbold Morris 1 questionnaire h;is reached major proportions. Many have threat- end to stage a mass walk-out. * * * Thi;i Is the t i m e when politics, l i k e spring in the nation's capital, is bustin' out all over. Nnt for 20 years has there been such a j j t c c n l n c of presidential coat feathers, such a parade of hopefuls toward the Democratic a l t a r . Competition Is the spice of politics as well as of the American life, and this is the healthiest t h i n g that h;is happened to the Democratic party In two decades. To help the American public watch the parade, here is a thumbnail review of the Easier political paraders--in order of age: Vice President Albcn Barkley--ago 74. Kindly, astute, popular, Alben once heard an Egyptian fortune teller at the pyramids outside Cairo t r l l him he would live to be 103. Barkley gave the f o r t u n e teller $5 extra and has believrrl Mir prediction ever since. In spirit, Barkley is still a young man. Spcakar Sam Rayburn of Texas--a«c 70. Called "Mr, Democrnt," he pioneered some of the earliest New Deal legislation: thf holding company set; tht Securities and Exchange Commission: tht BEA, which brought electricity In farms. Sam Ii revtrcd and respected on Capitol Hill, but both h* and Barkley a u t o m a t i c a l l y eive the Republicans their best argument for nominating Central MncArlhur, aged 72. Sen. Paul Douglas of Illinois--agt «0. Despite repmttd protests that he Is not a candidate, Douglas has a trtmendous popular following, runks third--after Kefauver and Truman--In the current Mfrry-Go-Hound poll. A Quaker. Douglas! enlisted In the Marines at the ace of 50, came out badly wounded, has great political as well as physical courage and, lik« Kefauver, has built up such popularity that he has incurred acute White House displeasure, Sen. Robert Kcrr of Oklahoma--age 55. A big oil and f«K man, Ktrr traded all torts of votes on "Hal issues in order to pass his Kcrr n a t u r a l (as bill ptrmltting an Increase in the price of gas. Though a delightful personality and good campaigner, any Inspection nf his lobbying record during an election campaign would result In certain defeat. Sen. nichard Russell of Georgia--age 54. AWc and highly respected, he has been the leader of the Republican-Democratic coalition which has successfully fought Truman on civil rights and his name would automatically alienate the big blocs of Negro voters which can swing elections in New York, Chicago and other Northern cities. Gov. Adl«l Stevenson of Illinois--age 52. The top choice of President Truman, has been an A-l governor, knows the government f r u m h a v - ing served in the State and Navy departments, grandson of a vice president of the United Statts, ablt and courageous. Handicaps arc a divorce which, though not of his choosing, would m a k e him the first divorced man to serve in the White Houst; he also testified for Alger Hiss. * * * Sen. Estes Kefauver of Teniietsee--ago 48. A proven vote-getter. His performance against tht well-organized Truman machine* in New Hampshire was nothing short of a political miracle. However, since it's always customary to throw stones at the man in the lead, Kefauver is getting his share--especially from jealous colleagues. A c t u a l l y Kefauver lias shown more courage on civil rights t h a n any other Southern senator, pioneered on public housing, voted against Ihn poll tax, has campaigned diligently for a United Europe, and saw the Impoitancs of a corruption c l e a n u p two years ahead of anyone *ls«. Tht p«opl« like him, but the politicians don't. Sen. Brien McMahon of Connecticut--age -18. Has done more constructive work for peace and foreign a f f a i r s t h a n any other senator. Had the vision to see the importance of atomic energy and establish the Atomic Energy Committee. Having served in the Justice Department, he knows Washington as few others. U n f o r t u n a t e - ly, religious prejudice having been stirred up over the Vatican Issue. .McMabon, a Catholic, ' would have hard sledding. Gov. Mention Williams of Michigan--age 41. One of the coming men in the Dcmocrnlie party. He startled normally Republican .Michigan by w i n n i n g the governorship In IfMfl, and repeated in 1950.

Thirty Years Ago Today (Fayctteville Dally Democrat, April 4, 1922) According to announcement sent out last night by radio telephone from radio station 501, all amateur operators are nsked to meet at the Rose home at the corner of East and Spring streets, Thursday evening for the purpose of organizing a Fayctteville Amateur Radio Club. All operators and persons contemplating erecting a rkdlo station are urged to be present that the work of organizing the club may be completed on that evening.. The University of Arkansas library is now open every night for the use o f - m e n students. The library is the chief study center of the University and its opening nt night is a great aid to better scholarship on the part of the men. The opening of the library at niglit to the men also gives the women students a better opportunity for study, since the library is not so crowded by men during school hours. Twenty Veara Ago Today (FaycttRVllle Daily Democrat, April 4, 1932) With tax collections about up to the overage, so far (his year, many rural people are paying taxes with old type money, indicating t h a t considerable hoarded money is being put into circulation. With the highway d e p a r t m e n t f u r n i s h i n g four trucks for the work, the city is gravelling Highway 10 from the city limits to the Leverettc school. The city is furnishing drivers and gravel, and gravelling Avas to start today. Trucks furnished by the highway department will permit the city to improve this stretch at a comparatively low cost. N Ten Vein Ago Today (Northwest Arkansas Times, April 4, 1942) The Arkansas Fanners Cooperative board of directors voted unanimously at a meeting yesterday to set up an egg grading station at Jl East Mountain In connection with the cooperative. The cooperative will pay current mirktt prices, candle and grade the eggs In U.S. standards, the U.S. standards b'eing placed on the market and the culls sold to the tgg breaking plants. Additional profits received for the eggs on tht graded basis will be returned to the farmers after the eggs are sold, giving farmers the benefit of current market receipts plus any additional price that is received after the tggs are traded, candled and marketed. Members of the Hilo Troop of Girl Scouts are plannirtg to become service scouts so that t: ey may be called upon at any time to perform a service, and each girl plans to have a uniform by May 1. · Questions And Answers Q--What.Is the origin of tht expression "seven years of bad luck," as a result of break- Ing a mirror? A--The ancient superstition arose f/om the belief that one's reflection was the image of the soul. Any surface that would produce s reflec T lion was carefully guarded lest it be broken and injure the soul. Q--What became of the Bonhomme Richard, John Paul Jones' flagship? A--The Bonhomme Richard was so badly damaged after her engagement with the British frigate Serapls on September 23, 1779, off the coast of England, that she sank the next day. Jones continued to France in another ship. XXXI 1UARNEY CRAVATH had to be stopped or he'd tear everything down. I grabbed his arm "That's the last thing to do." I said "You could choke him all nigh and you wouldn't get a thing ou of him. He knows that as things stand now, nobody can get an iota of proof he committed the murder Arcd we'd make a mistake to even give him a glimmer that we suspect him." ; He hesitated--impressed, I think, ,in spite of himself. "But, a mur- jdcrer! Under rny roof!" : "All right," I said. "But put him Ion his guard and he'll be scot-free j under other roofs for the rest ol i his n a t u r a l life. And nnnn ol | them will be the roof of a jail- I house, either." i He saw the reason in this. He went bock to his chair, sat heavily. "Well, what do we do? Let him gn or. murdering people .it j his mvn convenience?" All at once | he started up again. "Then it wns i Have Sladen who--who tried to k i l l me?" It didn't seem necessary to answer that. "But why?" Cravnth's face was a pur.y.led m a s k and his voice slightly plaintive. "1 gave, him the best job he's ever had." I n o d d e d , "Yes. Rut there's something else t h a t hp never could get from you. Sally." "You mean he wants to marry her?" 1 was In it now, tn 'lie point of no return. "Slndcn is wild nboul 'Sally. But he's r.irc ynti wouldn't ' H i v e your consent in n million -ycnrs." "You're right thore. I wouldn't." ' 1 spread my himris. I'd gotten Ithis distasteful job over. But I didn't like myself any better for .having done so. "Well, there It is. Oh, Hire, Sally's free, white and 21, Theoretically, she ran do as she pleases. Dm even I, practically t stranger here, know that Sally would never marry without your approval, And if I know it Sladen knows it. You're the stumbling-block that's keeping' him from completing his plans. So he's tried, twice, to ..." I let my voice trail. drew a soft lingering *-* breath. "I -- see. To remove me, eh?" His fists, raised, were like great poised hammcrs--"Sallj moans everything tn me. And she'd marry that fellow only over my dead body. Because he isn't good enough for her." "That," I muttered', "is what we're going to prove." One of the poised fists came down on his knee. 'T)ave Sla- dcn's been a smart, efficient secretary. He docs his work well, earns his salary, and that's why I keep him. But I don't .like him as a man. He's warped and biased and ·ah, twisted. I don't know what's the matter with him. But if I had my way we'd have Sally in here right now and Sladen too and get to the bottom of this business." 'Do that," I said, "and Dave Slarien Rets away with one of the neatest murders on record. Only it isn't actually on the record as a murder. He won't get Sally, but he'll have $50,0(10 and his freedom to go after some other rich girl." He leaned back In his chair. "All right, all right," he said wearily. What do you want me to do?" This was it, the vital moment. "1 want you," I said, "to do just as I pay. And it may mean risking your life." There was a momentary silence. Then: "Very well, Orth." Marston Cravnth shot^mo a queer look from under thick bushy brows. ."I've never ducked anything yet. And I don't propose to begin at my age. Now what the devil have you got n mind?" I told him. The next day rolled In on a tide of sunshine. A day upon which inch I thing as tension should. b*if been i million m i l t s away. It wasn't. At Itast thrtt people at Windovtr w a l k e d in separate auras of fear and anxiety. I was one of the three and therefore I wasn't sorry I had to go into Port Liston that morning. When I returned Sally was put- ·taring around amongst autumnal flowers. "Come here a minute, Jim," she called. · * · loath, I ambled over. The sun was painting her hair in gilt wash and her cheeks were a lovely blend of coral and suntan. "You," I said, surveying her, "make a cover girl .look like a bundle of old clothes." She passed that understatement to ask abruptly, "Where have you been?" "Oh, round and about." Her eyes narrowed, gave me a searching look. "H'm. You seem to have been round and about a lot lately. Is there anything going on, Jim?" "Not that I know of," I said casually. "Well," Impatience edged her tone, "what are you doing, anyway?" "You mean right now? Letting you enchant me." That annoyed her. She stamped a slim foot. "Oh, you make me so darn mad I could sock you. And don't think for a minute that 1 don't know w h a t the score is. You're stymied in this business, Jim Orth. Licked. You're not getting anywhere. Sometimes I think you aren't even trying to. But you're sort of dog-in-tht-mangcr ibout it. You won't call In help yourself and whenever I want to do it, you stall me. Well, I'm sick of it. You've put me off and put me off, but this is the end. So I'm giving you the rest of tht day, to get something accomplished, It you can't, I'm going to tht police, Tht very first thing tomorrow." "Hoity-toity," I said wtakly. But I drew a surreptitious brtath of relief. Tomorrow wa* akay. I'd bMn fearful, at the start of tht tirade, that tht might kick oV«r a* Utces today. or* Colu mn 87 «Al BOTLf New York-Wl-There's been i revolution in America in tht matter of spring houseclcaning. It is a man-sized job today. More and more the little woman is taking a standby role while .a new broomholder--the lord and master of tht house--sweeps clean. I know 10 milion housewives across the land will at on :e chorus dubious "Oh, yeah? Since when?" So let them eavesdrop, as I did, on the following conversation at a recent hen party: "I just hate this time of year." laid the first wife, reaching for a chicken salad sandwich. "My hus- sand, Joe, simply goes 'razy. He wants to do our apartment over from top to bottom. He keeps the vacuum cleaner going from morn ing to night, "My Henry is the same vay," igrced the second wife. "As soon as he hears the first robin he just goes out of his mind. He starts pulling down the draperies, rolling up the rugs and waxing the floors. The place is a perfect mess." "My Jim must be a little backward," sighed the third wife. "He lasn't even learned how to cook." "He's just a bridegroom--you dont know how !ue.:y you are," slid the first wife. "Yes," remarked the second wife morosely, sipping her martini. Wait until you've had him around a little longer. You'll find him larder and harder to live with after he starts taking an interest in the h6use." "Well, I did get my Jim to help me wash windows once," said the third wife. "But he was so awkward he broke a pane and cut his wrist and the doctor charged $25 to sew him up." "Sometimes I wish my Joe would fall out the window this time, of year--he causes such an uproar," observed the first wife. "Sometimtf I think I will push my Harry rifht out the window myself," grimly spokt the second wife, digging deeper into tier martini. "I don't know wh»t goes into him every April. I tell him the house is perfectly all right as it is, but he says: "I don't wact my friends to set it in this condition. I have some pridt--even if you don't.' And tht ntxt thing I know he is stirring up the di»t and slapping paint over everything. The very ntrve!" "How do you explain your husband's wanting to do the spring cleaning?" asked the third wife, still a bit envious. "I blame it all on their mothers," said the first wife, as (he began enveloping a ham sandwich. "When they were kids their mothers made them take the rug out and beat it every spring. And now if you don't tie a dust cloth around your head when the lilac b.ooms-- just like mother used to do--they think you are shir'-ing your job." "You're absolutely right, dear" chimed in the second wife. "I tell my Henry that nowadays you keep your house clean all year around, and that it is old-fashioned to teaY t apart every spring fall. But 10 simply won't listen." "What this country needs," said the first wife, summing it all up, 'is a good restful hotel where wives can go and stay until their lusbands get through their spring housecleaning madness." How about that ladies? Is 1 your lusband getting a restless look ii) his eyes? If he is, better hide that vacuum cleaner--or you won't mow any peace until he wears himself out and the dust settle; azain. The big problem for a wife today s cleaning up after a hbuseclean- ng husband. " Dear Miss Dix: I am a married woman with three children aged 10, 6 and 2. I do everything possible to be a good wife and mother, yet my husband says I am neither. He finds fault with everything, and keeps on fussing over one thing for hours, sometimes even days. Even if I get his okay on something, he'll turn around and complain because it's been done. Up to the last year he at least never complained of my cooking (on which, incidentally, I pride myself). Now no meal suits him. He wants steak every day, yet the food hills must be kept to a minimum; you know that's impossible. He says he doesn't expect to live with me after the youngest child reaches 10. I can't discuss this problem with my family, as they have enough worries without my adding to them. My husband says if I leave him I can't have the children; yet he doesn't show them any love or affection whatever. He actually acts as if he hated me. He never has a kind word -for me. and hasn't kissed me but once in the past year and a half. He doesn't say good-byt when he leaves, or hello when he returns. I realize that I'm only a housekeeper and I'm desperately wondering what the ftiturt holds for me. Mary Lou Answer: You have given a very pathetic picture of » man badly in need of psychiatric care. The fact that your husband was once a kind, considerate person, and has now become a chronic nagger, indicates an emotional disturbance of some sort that needs attention. He will probably balk at the prospect of seeking aid, but If by any means you can persuade him to see a psychiatrist, or at any rate a good general practitioner, you save your marriage. He's Most Unhappy Such a home life as he has created is bad for all of you, and I'm sure your husband is the unhap- plest member of th*' family. Tht abnormality of his behavior is clearly shown in his desire fv such luxury items as steak every day, at no increase In the food bill. If such conflicts are evident, you can be sure there are maryr more within that don't come to the surface. If you wanted to leave him, you'd probably have no difficulty keeping tht children. It's doubtful if they would be awarded to a father so evidently unbalanced. However, separation would, I believe, make him worse. If you hope for a brighter future, sta,y with him, cope with his temper as best you can and try to get him to a doctor. It will also be better for you if. you take someone into your confidence. A situation as bad as thw Is too much for a woman to bear slone. If you feel that your family is already overburdened, talk to your pastor. It's too bad that th£ understanding and sympathetic advice of the clergy is so seldom sought by people in distress. So often they can give, even in a short interview, a clearer outlook on a problem than you yoursc'f could reach in days and weeks of worry. If you don't belong to a church, go see the clergyman nearest you. With his spiritual hefp, and a doctor's practical aid, you should find a solution. I sincerely hopt so.
