He Klio told a Senate Labor-Management Committee behind cloned doors that he himself would resign immediately If the Senate adopted an amendment by Sen. Everett Dlrksen, Illlnoln Republican, aimed at weakening the Wage Board. "The adoption of the Dlrksen amendment, or anything like it, would produce- chaos." Chairman Felnilnger warned. "Hasty legislation in the_ delicate field of labor-management relations wlli open a pandora's box of confusion ami unrest. I should not want to be held responsible for the consequences." - . The blunt-spoken wage stabilizer read off « long list of Industries that are walking the tightrope of labor nefotlntlons. "If the board's dlsnulc functions are taken «w«y,". he declarer). "I predict t h a t we would almost Immediately hnvo strikes in some, or pos- ·Iblv all. of these Industries." Felrtslnrer warned t h a t nirkson's proposals would break up the board ami mean "the end nf frinartltlsm In wage stabilisation and dlspultes settlement." "I want to say this with all the emnhasls at my command," he added solemnly.

Two other Georgians, Henderson Lanham. and Sidney Camp, also are veering Kefauver- warri ae a second choice lo Russell, while able Brooks Hays of Arkansas has indicated a preference for the Tennessecan, next to his own Gov. Sid McMath. House Whip Percy Priest of Tennessee, No. 3 man In House Democratic ranks, has been an outspoken Kefauver booster from the start. Another powerful Tennesseean, Jere Cooner, of the Ways and Means Committee, sfiys privately "Estes Kefauver is a distinguished Tennesseea'n and 1 am certainly for him." Congressional observers any that many other Southerners need only a slight shove to get the Kefauver bandwagon rolling as merrily below the Masnn-nixon line as In the North. Not*-- Southern opposition to Kefauver was based largely on the fact that he has gone further than any other Southern senator toward civil rlghta. Irony is th.t Walter White; the Negro leader, is still vigorously against him. Woodrow Wilson was a great reader of books, and the author he admired above all others was Mark Twain. When his presidential train pawed through Hannibal, Mo., therefore, Mr. Wllion ordered a three-hour wall-over that he might wander for a bit among the boyhood haunls of the famous humorist. Accosting a native, the president said, "I'm a stranger- in these parts. Could you tell me where Tom Sawyer was supposed to live?" "Never heard of him " maintained the native. "Well, how about Buck Khn?" persisted Mr. Wilson. "Never heard of him nuthcr," declared the nalivc. The president made one more In', "How about Puddinlwad Wilson?" he inquired The native's face brightened. "I heard nf him all right," he said cheerfully. "In fact, I even voted for the durn fool." * * * S. Z. "Cuddles Sakall, the rotund comedian, asked a pint-sized dancer how much she weighed. "A hundred and one," she told him. Sakall sighed and poiijted out, "I ate more than that for lunch." * * * Vernon Gomez, eccentric southpaw of the Yankees of yesteryear, told an audience of youthful sandlotlers, "I hold the record for the longest home run in the Yankee Stadium." After a pause for effect, he added, "Yup, kids, Jimmy Foxx. hit it off me." Gome?, was a soft touch for mooching pals, but one o f ' t h e m , already in his debt for over five hundred dollars, went too far. He wired Lefty. ''My poor old mother just died and unless you loan me two hundred at once, they'll bury her in Potter's Field.

Sh was subdued, a trifle theepish, an cold sober. But everyone, partic tilarly Eve Wheeler, did his best t put her at ease. And Eve's stock already high with me, climlnd couple more points. The ii*ht of Cravith. mlnglini 'on occasion with his prospectivi executioner, didn't help either. In fnct, during one especially weak 'moment, I even made an attetnp to call the whole d a n g e r o u scheme off. 1 drew Cravsth aside around 4 o'clock. "I'm getting cold feet." said. "After all, who am I to sug Kcst that you risk your life?" He shook his head emphatically "None of that now! Last night you ·old me on the Idea that It's th only way to get this fellow, and I'm still buying it. Everything's Ht. I spoke to Jack this morning | tMd him what you told me to tel him, i ad he underitands what he's to do." I did t little arguing, but it wit half-hearted. But I had two more Jobs to do before the zero hour. One wa routine -- j u s t to look over the ground. I got away after my little talk with Cravath and confirmed It. The evergreen I'd remembered was there, all right, aquat, thick, ipreidlng. It would give me caver. The other Jobt 1 went back toward the houte by a circuitous route, trying to look like I man with nothing on his mind.

Stalin who, unlike Kimball, could say a lot, ·ays unlike Kimball, very little-- *nd, unlike 'Kimball, says it very rarely. The upshot of the two types of interviews is different. The Kimball type ends with official explanations that he did not mean whit he said. The Stalin type ends with everyone a s k i n g /nether he said'anything at all. ·y WALTER LirrMAMf Three of Stalin's four answers i Mr. Wick's questions are, in he exact sense of the term, propa- anda. They are addressed to the |)eoples of Russia and of F.urope, nd they seem to say a great deal n general about the peaceful purposes of the Soviet Union without committing the Soviet government in any way to anything in particular. But in the light of events one answer cannot be put into the same class with the others. "Do you consider," Stalin was asked, "the present moment opportune for the unification of Germany?" His answer which was "Yes. I do," i» not mere propaganda because since the Soviet note of March 10 the unification of Germany has been an immediate and current matter, a burning question not in the indefinate future but in the present moment. The gravity and importance of the German developments of the past three weeks have evidently been realized In' Russia, in the satellite countries, and of course in Germany. The Soviet government in advocating a reunited and rearmed Germany must have spread bewilderment and fear among the people of the Soviet orbit who lived under the Nazi occupation. Stalin's voice may well have been needed at the present moment to reassure them and to steady them as they are forced to swallow the hard German modi- cine which ha! been prepared In Moscow, radically new phtie Is ihjrper in Bonn, where everything is at stake, than it is--11 yet--in Washington. Three weeks are * short time in which to do anything new or important--considering all the other preoccupations of large cumbersome democratic governments in which one set of high officials is on its way out and the others are not yet on their way in. It is a short time in which to reexamine the very foundations of a policy which the officials hoped ancl believed, after sweating it out for years in endless conferences, had at long last been, get- tied. There they are, the mountains of memoranda, the stacks of communiques, declarations and speeches, of pacts and agreements and contracts put together after tedious and exhausting search for formulas of words. There is the election coming on, and the whole wretched business is reopened again ... It cannot be true because it ought not to be true that the foreign ministers are going to have to hash it all over again. It is like a man hurrying for a train who drops his suitcast and all his belongings get scattered on the floor. * * It was to be expected, I suppose, that the people mort Immediately and directly involved, the Germans and the people to the east of them, should have realized sooner than others what happened on March 10. The realization (hat on that date the evolution of Kurope after the world war entered a Yet it is hard to.see how the western governments can manage to avoid going into It all over again down to the ultimate issues. Thus when General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower, whose report appears to have been substantially completed before March 10, says that the "consolidation of military elements . . . from Western Germany" into N. A. T. O. . . "would b« a long step toward the unification of Europe," he wn writing in terms of the situation as it was conceived to be in the western capitals prior to the Soviet proposal about Germany. This proposal has driven the Germans, and it will drive us ai well, to see that .they are now offered on the one hand unity with Western Europe founded on the (Msunlty of Germany, and that on the other hand they are offered. the unification of Germany first and after that a number of interesting opportunities. In the face of the new situation it is impossible for the Western nations t» claim that their present policies mean the unification of Europe. They do not mean that. They will have to revise their policies in order to make them mean that-if the West is to cope successfully with the tremendous danger of the Soviet campaign.
