This questionnaire is similar to that tent to the Washington, D. C.. police and the New York police. It was ok'd by the president. Nevertheless, most of the cabinet demurred against f i l l - ing it out--two of them, Secretary of Defense 1-ovett and Secretary of the Treasury Snyder, visorouily. They called It an insult to their integrity. ' · . Furthermore, Attorney General McGrath, at the next to the last cabinet meeting he attended, virtually proposed that the questionnaires he Junked. "I'm still holding that stack of questionnaires Newbold Morris wants to send out," McGrath said, in substance."! don't t h i n k we should send them out. They're fin insult to uoeryone in government." The ·president suggested t h a t M c G r a t h wait until the following week aod take the matter up with him direct. Truman did not say so, but Morris had brought the questionnaire over for his personal inspection, and .the president gave i'. his blessing. Following the cabinet meeting, and without conferring, with the president again, McGrath made his now famous statement to a House committee that he himself might not sign the questionnaire. * * * The Newbold Morris quiz-sheet which caused McGrath's exit from the cabinet .starts out with some innocuous questions about names of wife, children,- nm'ouht earned by .wife, amount earned by children. Then question 0 begins to get down to bram tacks. It asks for s list of assets on, the date the official'cntercd the governmjs*, with a list of assets today. This list of assets is spelled out under "cash --In banks and elsewhere; automobiles; stock*, bonds, real ««tate, furs, jewelry, household effects," etc. Under this question, McGrath would have hud to list his partnership In O'Koefe Motors in Providence, R. I., I Dodge-Plymouth agency. Since most »ulo detlert hav« made a lot since the war, presumably McGr«th's assets would have increased considerably. The ex-attorney general might »lso have had to list his interest on Textron, a tax-free foundation manufacturing textiles, which WHS invcsti- Wted by the Senate and from which he receives! «n a n n u a l salary of $15.01)0. It Is utvlcrstood that he resigned from this afetr entering the Justice Department, though he had drawn the salary while in other government positions ?.nd while Tcxtron's tax exemption was under consideration in the Treasury Department. Section B of question n gets down to delails which might worry some officials. It asks if any ls»ets are held under "« fictitious name or through 1 nominee, trujteo, or escrow agent;" Queition 11 directs: "List all bank accounts, such as savings, checking, trust, postal savings, Christmas club, building and loan account of yourself and family," including those held under fictitious names. * * * Question 12 reads: "List all safe-deposit boxes held during the past five yearc . . . In your n«me, your wife's name, or In the, name of «ny member of the Immediate family," plus all safe-deposit boxes tmrier fictitious names. No. 14 goes into employment outside the government, including legal fees. Under this question It -Is necessary to fill out^thrce pages listing companies from whom fees were retclvecH Under this, McGr«th would/have hsd to list the Klrst Federal Savings and Loan Association of Providence -which he helped establish. His brother now runs It. · No. 15 merely asks routine information about filing Income-tax returns, but No. 16 asks government official* to list any gifts exceeding $250 In value; while No. 17 nsks whether the official has ever been associated in a private or business manner with nn *x-convlct. Question 18 will hit government officials who are race-track fans, "Have you won or lost any sums of money in excess of $500 In any form of gambling during the past four years?" Morris queried. The man who fired him, Howard McOrath, was no gambler--aside from possible clectipn bets--but hp did own purl of the Lincoln Downs rare track in Rhode Island which subsisted on legal betting. Question 19 might he embarrassing for some people. It reads: "Have you or any member of ynur family during the entire period of your federal employment received any gift or compensation or promise thereof from any person, firm, or corporation for aiding any dealings with any ngency of the federal government?" There follows space for listing each gift and Un- person giving it. Question 20 asks whether any cash over $500 It. or has been, around the homes or persons of government officials. Question 21 gets to the root of one of the dodges of some officials--setting up law firms to handle government business and do lobbying favors which they themselves can't do publicly. The two next questions inquire about commissions or brokerage fees received from outsiders; or any type of compensation for the referral of business. The last question asks for details on any brokerage accounts carried in a government official's name, or that of his wife, member^, of family, or fictitious name.

"Arc you making this ·up?" · "No," I said. "Cravath and I .learned Ames wanted to know the .time a few minutes after he discovered the bonds missing. A guy with a wonderful Swiss watch could have looked at it." : . Dumont waved n hand. "Perhaps he'd forgotten to wcnr it." "We checked up. He left his watch for repairs with a Jeweler named Ensler who had piled up work ahead. Ames got it back about .two hours before he- took the train for Wlndover. You couldn't have seen it in' the office. If--" 1 couldn'l resist this "--you had kept your mouth shut on those rocks, we'd never have known, or sent a guy to question Jewelers." Cravath looked at the ground. Sladcn kept the light on Dumont. "The attempt on Mrs. Duiuonl wasn't premeditated," I went on. ;"One rainy day you followed Mr. Cravath and Mrs. Wheeler »nd : overheard or saw something that must have been a blow to your ego. Cravath was ahead of you .there, too." It wasn't very delicate ,nnd It aroused Crnvalh from, his trance. "Oh, Orth . , ." I'd been hired for this and I was going- through with It. So I went on. "Later you saw Mrs. Dumonl wobbling down this path. She was another big stumbling block In your way. Something must huv« exploded In your brain, so you conked her from behind nnd ran her toward the cliffs." "And why didn't I heave her over?" Dumont spat (ho words. "An airplane that moment .to fly over," Crnvnlh snld. "1 remember hearing it when 1 was with Eve. You couldn't be sure what rr.ight ue seen from the plane." I nodded. "When 'you came to your senses you realized that this murder wasn't going to he clever enough, and you didn't RO back to finish the job -- knowing Dolly wouldn't know who bit her." · · » * LL during this, Dumont had ·^ bee- tensing, gathering his stro".p compact body. I thought he wu; Celling ready to spring at me--and I was ready. He fooled me. He whlrl"d srd- denly on Dave Sladen. "Keep that light out of my eyes." His voice held only Irritability. He might have been the boss, bawlinq out an underling at Cravath · Company. Starllcd, Dave let the torch down. Dumont made a half-pivot, right on his toes. Dumont must have been a fitting sub for All- American Halfback Marney Cravath. He completed the pivot In an cycwink, with the three of us momentarily ofT guard. , He pin- wheelcd past Cravath. 1 leveled the Run, Cravath moved like lightning, the first movement he'd made since the bc- fclnning of that stark, one-sided conversation. He knocked my arm nsidc. "Let him go!" he ,r n s p c d hoarsely. Dumont went, a durk streak. He never even broke stride at the chains -- just took them like a hurdler. Ills feet seemed scarcely to touch the little fatal patch of ground onto which Ames Warburton had gone to his-dcnth. There was no hesitation; no .fearful yell c;unc back from the void beyond, .lack Dumont's nerve held to the end. I brought my rented car around to the front of the house early the 2 by NEA' Service, Inc7 next morning. Then I carried my bags down, without bothering Manila. I admit to feeling pretty sore. But after that trick 1 had played on Cravath, I had it coming. Of course, I had had a job to do. But the job had not been pleasant and now my association with the Cra- vaths--Marston and his niece Sally--had ended. I did not expect to see either of them again. The police investigation had been completed. The whole story had been told. There would be notoriely, which Crava'lh had sought to avoid, but it would soon pass. · · · A FTER that terrible ending, Mar" ston Cravath had not said one word to me. He had walked, head down and shoulders sagging, back to the bouse. I'd deceived him Into setting a snare for someone he had trusted and loved, even though his trust and love bad been misplaced. But he had assumed the role of betrayer and tor putting him In that position he could not (orgive roe. even though we had been dealing with murder. Oh my Way down with my bugs I met Dave Slarien. "I forgot to thank you last night for oemg willing to play ball," 1 told him. "It couldn't have been very pleasant, knowing that your boss thought you were a murderer. I'd told him you were and he was expecting you to heave that ball." Dnve shrugged. "I've had to do unpleasant things all my life. Hut 1 will »ny this: I detested Warburton and I can't say much for sorio others around here, but I never wanted to sec any of them murdered. If I helped you get thnt half-human devil, I'm Rind of It."

BLAKESI.EE New York-(/P)-The .chances of being brought bach to life after the heart has stopped beating are taking a rapid upswing. They now are six out of seven that the ^person whose .heart slops while on Ihe surgeon's operating table can be saved if the doctor takes this heart In his hand and squeezes rhythmically. To get this high percentage, he must begin-, within five m i n u t e s after breathing has stopped. But that is becoming compsralively easy, thanks lo the growing knowledge and skill of surgeons. Along with Ihe better odds, which account for the news reports somelimes at Ihe rate of one a month, of people coming back from the dead, there is a lot of new knowledge about death itself --particularly about how long we can stay "dead" under the old standard, and still recover. Doctors always have known neople are nol dead when the learts slop but that moment wns for thousands of years Ihc official death because nothing could be done lo slart a heart. Back in 1870 doctors used surgery to open a dog's chest and massage of the animal's heart lo restore life after the heart stopped. But it was not until 1901 had was started again. The time is uncertain because the early records are incomplete. The records since tell the story best. In 50 years, up to this February,' there are reliable records of 350 cases. Of these 112 lived and 238 died. This is only one in three brought to life, but it covers an entire half century, particularly the beginnings when skill was not so .widespread, whan artificial brcathinj^which also has to be used -- was not so good and when blood transfusions and heart stimulating drugs wen not as well know.n. Opinions Chant* Until the last lSy«ars,H Was believed that if the doctor did not start within five minutes a f t e r " "death" there was danger of irreparable harm to brains, because nerve tissue is the first to die. But Ihe records show » few delays iasling up to 15 minutes, in which the patient was brought, back from death, with little or no harm. Dr. Frank ' Cole, Lincoln, Nejp., surgeon who compiled this · record in the American Medical Association's annals of jurgery fays: "Only three cases v«re found in " which there were slight residual effecls. II may be said that almost invariably a patient whq survives cardiac arrest heart beat stopping recovers completely." Recent cases indicate that doctors are now pushing the Jlmlt but it still cannot bo said for certain ' lust how long it takes for real death to arrive. Massage--squeezing with the hand--has become Ihe beit treat- " ment. Medical science is devising other methods which may replace the surgeon's hand. When such a . substitute becomes well known, it will be easier to revive those "dead" whose hearts stop when Ihere is no surgeon near. A .v*ry 1902 that the first human heart Jew already have been saved by ' being rushed to.-fl surgeon. In the present state of this medical art. the reason for hearts plopping is important. The revivals can be. done if the heart stops because its numerous muscle fibers get out of rhythm, or an overdose of anesthetic, or sensitivity to an anesthetic, or blood pressure that drops to practically zero. Other causes in which there is hope are hearts slopped by h»ng- i n g, brain injuries. electrocution, smothering, injuries, fhock and heart Dear Miss Dix: I am a widow in my middle 30's wilh t\vo fino . teen-age children by my,, deceased I husband. I have fallen, in love with a man 14 years my senior, whom I have known for one year. He has always been exceedingly understanding, considerate and affectionate, and is the only man whose company ,1 find real contentment. He has expressed a desire to mcel the children, but I liavu con- sislly refused, feeling, perhaps unconsciously, that this might be construed as disrespect to my husband, whose memory I shall always hold in deep devotion. Recently my friend asked to marry me, and provids the father's care which would be beneficial lu my children. Hownvcr, I felt lhal our a f f a i r hart reached complicating proportions and voluntarily terminated our relationship, although we bolh remain deeply in love. He has objeclod vehemently, and my friends have questioned my a l t i t u d e in the matter, so I t u r n to you for advice. Alice B. Answer: You are in-a very confused slate, Alice. There's no reason why you, as a widow, should feel cut off f rom any possibility of f u t u r e marriage and happiness, provided, of course, t h a t your children's happiness is not endangered by a second wedding. Let Youngsters Meet Him You made a grave error in not lolling your youngsters meet the man wilh whom you are in love. should Ihink lliey, loo, would have felt a n a t u r a l curiosity lo meet him, as he did in wanting to become acquainted w i t h Ihrm. H you delected any indication of antagonism on either side, they would have been your clue to end · your friendship, but al least you should have given all parties concerned a chance to know each other. If your children are normal teenagers, and your suitor as fine as you depict him, they would have no objection to your re-marriage. t In fact, they would welcome a considerate, understanding stepfather. If they had come to know him during the past year, they would have accepted him readily and naturally. . * Now, in order to bring things to a logical conclusion, you will have to do some explaining to the youngsters as to why your friend" wasn't brought home lo meet them 'before. You have a high sense of duly, but don't be overconscientious in your obligations lo a memory. You owe something to the present, to the living--to yourself. Tell your children · that you have met this fine man and would like lo have him vlsll your home. Lei thnm meet him, then tell them, perhaps after a few mort visits,.or at once, depending upon their reactions, that you are m u t u a l l y fond of each other. Don't worry from then on*--the kids will do their own thinking. Remember', your children will soon be old enough to marry and you'll face the world alone. If you have a chance to marry well, thank God for your good fortune and don'l hesilale. t Reei up with tlw Hnef--read the TIMES dallr.
