Mimbtr Audit Bumu of Circulation _ Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child ; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.-- Proverbs 22:15 Correction Needed The following editorial wns published in the TIMES January 5, 1952. It was the first of several along the same lines this newspaper saw fit to print. The publisher, Mrs. Roberta Fulbright, wrote a front page editorial on the same ftnb.ject. The Federation of Women's Clubs in Arkansas has fjone on record against the release of prisoners by the state, and ft is possible that other organized groups will take a stand on the issue. "Tuck Bishop, 66 years old, who was found guilty of murder after four men were shot to death oil a street in Spring- (Islc in January, 1943, was released from the Arkansas state prison farm for a Christmas furlough and did not return to prison when time came for him to report back. Arkansas Prison Superintendent Lee Hcnslee announced the convicted slayer v.'os still at large, but the report came hours afte? he was supposed to be back and was still missing. "The slayings followed an argument in a Springdalc cafe between Bishop, his wife and five men. Bishop left the cafe ahead of the men and opened fire, when they came onto the street from the buildinir. Four of them werj killed, and the fifth escaped by diving under n car parked neaj- ·by. . "Bishop was tried and convicted and entered the prison system in mid-1943. Since then he has not received n furlough such us is given to "trustworthy" prisoners at Christmas time until this year when the furlough was granted and he left the farm reportedly for Little Rotk. So far ns can be determined, no trace of him since has been found. "Shcrjff Bruce Cridcr of \Vnshington County, where the shootings took place, reports he was asked about a longer furlough for the prisoner some time back, but recommended the man be kept con. fined. The officer was not asked about the Christmas furlough--in fact, was not notified by prison authorities that Bishop was at large. He learned about tt when he read the.story in a newspaper. "It appears that slate prison officials were in rio hurry to jret Bishop back where he was ordered for life by the Washington County Circuit Court in 1943. Notice that he was missing was tardily given out; police officials who would be expected to find him were not given the opportunity they might expect by early notification that his pickup was desired. Even when it was discovered he had not reported back according to 1enr\.i of his furlough, time was fleeting; He hid been at large long enough to.have gone to any corner of the country. "Finding him can be expensive and delayed--his charces of eluding capture were enhanced because of slow action taken at the prison farm." "Open-minded" can be a nice way of saying "empty-headed." Some folks would like Eisenhower better if he weren't a military man. But then they'd never have heard of him. THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round Br DREW PEARION Washington--One of the most important factors in convincing the president to lake a strong stand on the steel strike was o private conversation with Economic Stabilizer Roger Putnam and Defense Moblllier Charles E. Wilson, just before the latter resigned. Putnam, in private life a Sprinsficld, Mass., manufacturer, wa« arguing against his boss, Wilson, former head of the giant General Electric Company. The wage boost for stcelworkers, Put- ham claimed, was not unreasonable, "Look here, Charlie," said Putnam. "Look what G.E. has done. G.E. has Riven the same wage boost that's now recommended for filed, yet G.E. didn't boost prices." It was obvious that Charlie Wilson didn't want to listen. But Putnam persisted: "I've- got it right here," he continued eagerly. "It's a news letter issued by our own company. It says: 'It's been about J5 months since the steelworkers had nn adjustment. In that time G.E. hourly employes have averaged 15 cents pay increase allowed, and another possible tv/o to three cents offered currently.' "That," concluded Putnam, "is more than we're recommending for the steelworkers." Defense Moblllzer Wilson waved a big; brawny hand. It was a gesture of pushing something very unpleasant to one side. * * * Another thing that impressed Truman at a subsequent steel conference was some arithmetic placed before him by Price Stabilizer Ellis Arnall. ex-governor of Georgia. Briefly, they showed that the steel companies had been making $10.50 a ton profit since the Korean war started. Best profits prior to Korea were $11 a ton from '47 to '40, Governor Arnall estimated that the new pay increase would cost the industry a total of $4.035 per ton for one year, and that steel could get an increase of around $3 a ton under the Capchart amendment, thus making » net increase of only $1.03-',4 per ton because of wage boosts. This left a profit for the steel companies of more than $18 per ton, Arnal! told the president. Or, allowing for slight error in his figures, Arnall argued that the lowest profit the companies could possibly make would be $17, or six dollars above the $11 per ton profit made prior to Korea. This clinched things with President Truman. * » · It now develop.-! that.William Howard Taft III, grandson of the late president and son of the senatorial GOP candidate for president, was sent to Ireland under tJie. Marshal! plan because of his knowledge of the Gaelic language. But when young Taft cot to Dublin, it. also developed that the only language he knew was classical Gaelic. He could no more speak modern Gaelic than a modern Englishman can speak Chaucer. However. Marshall plnn administrators apparently were so anxious to win over the support of Senator Talt that they kept his son on the ECA payroll for three years as nn alleged expert on Irish tours. Thin wns considered rather a pleasant job. Tourists come to Ireland for the salmon fishing, for Jox-huntlnE and the horse shows. It Is a limited and select croup. Some tourists even bring their own horses. This column was in rrror when it recently speculated that young Taft disagreed with his father about the usefulness of the Marshall plan, the senator having born n consistent critic. Friends who served with young Taft in Ireland say that he agreed with his father that the Marshall plan was a waste of money, but he llkcrt Ireland and stayed on. His salary ranged from - $7,6(10 to $9.500. Young Taft finally loft after another ECA official was promoted over his head. 'More ce- he served as adviser to Adm. Lewis Strauss In,the Pentagon on the expense .allowance of $40 a day, but has resigned. * * * General. Eisenhower's lapl official ri-com- ' mondation before resigning is to urge all Atlantic pact countries to adont far stricter security measures to weed out Communists iii thdr armies. More than 150 Communist officers and enlisted men have been discovered in thn French, Belgian and llnlffin nrmicK in the past two months alone. And Eisenhower. I can rr- vcal, believes there may he hundreds more acting as Russian spies. fin he's recommended that the Europeans pattern their security checks after that used by ihe American Army, and that this be done immediately. Assistant Secretary of State John Allison has been alcrlcd to be. ready to fly to Korea nl one hour's notice. Allison Is the State Department's Korean truce expert, and Secretary Acheson hnyi him standing by for a rush trip to Korea. This is-the most hopeful sign In the truce talks for several months. Lobbyists for hiqhcr prices are now swarm- inp over Capitol Hill in a drive to kill orice controls. They point to the slkht sag in the cost of living as nn excuse for killing controls altogether . . . These nrc the same lobbvlsts who fought against controls at the outbreak of the Korean war.

So could many of the Northern and Western organization men who have ccme to power through the New Deal and the Fair Deal. As a result of his long service in Washington, moreover, Harriman already knows rather intimately the key men in the farm, labor and other powerful groups, and these men like and trust him. Finally, with Stevenson out of«*he picture, Harriman would become the almost inevitable choice of the many powerful .Democrats who have no use for Sen. Estes Kefauver. These conspicuously in- make W. Averell Harriman New | York's favorite son. The imme- | diate purpose is to hold the New | York delegates in line for Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois. But if Stevenson talks himself out of j the race, Harriman will im diately become a serious candidate with the enormous asset of the biggest state ' delegation in his pocket. Harriman has, in fact, behaved with remarkable generosity to Stevenson. An ambitious m a n , Harriman has brilliantly discharged the highest duties under two Presidents, and he has every right to regard himself an important political figure. Yet he himself regards Stevenson as the best available candidate, and he has a good deal to do with keeping Stevenson in the race thus far. Immediately after the Jefferson- Jackson dinner, at which President Truman made his surprise withdrawal announcement, Harriman and Stevenson, who are old friends, sought each 'other out Stevenson had no prior.inkling of Truman's intention to withdraw then, and he had of course been put in an uncomfortable spot. He was therefore in a disgruntled mood and he talked seriously of taking himself out of the race once and for all. Harriman argued eloquenU with him, especially when Slevcn- clude President Truman, who strongly admires Harriman and who is determined to prevent Kefauver's nomination at almost any cost. " . Truman, in fact, according to reliable report, personally approved the project hatched by New York State Chairman Paul Fitzpatrick. and Bronx Boss Ed Flynn, to star a sort of contingent boom for Harriman. The first step in this Fitzpatrick-Flynn prel- ect is the New York dinner in Harriman's honor, scheduled for April 17, the day before the New York caucus at which Harriman's selection as New York's favorite son will almost certainly be for- malizcci. This dinner should be an interesting occasion. All the Demo- son indicated thnt he thought | cratic hopefuls, with the possible Dwight D. Eisenhower would bo j exception of Governor Stevenson, the Republican choice, and gave but conspicuously including Ko- r . ' . » _ n ! _ _ _!· t 1 ._ J h ; - r -- """ f-T not wanting to run against Eisenhower. Harriman is i....i.;j.i an oid iriend and admirer of Eisenhower. Yet he argued that -Elsenhower would prove means unbeatable; that by no Eisenhower's election would nlso elect many reactionaries lo Congress; and that domestic and foreign policy v/ere important and wholly inter-dependent. For these reasons, he argued, it was Stevenson's duty to make the race, even against Eisenhower. Stevenson may not have been ! wholly convinced, but at least he did not withdraw the next day, as some of his friends had feared. And it is significant that Hnrri- nian's own arguments apply lo himself, if Stevenson for one reason or another is counted out. Moreover, in this case all sorts of powerful support will alrr.ost fauver, will be on display. And they will be put through the paces over radio and television. One o? the objections to a Harriman candidacy has always been that he is a poor speaker and does not register well at this sort of occasion. Yet on April 4 he made a speech which amazed even his most for* vent adrnlircrr. The occasion was the third anniversary of the signing of the North Atlantic Treaty. President "Truman, Secretary rrf State Dean Acheson, Secretary of the Treasury John Snyder and others went through the usual weary, chost-written performance. Then Harriman made a speech which obviously came from the heart, and which- was so brilliant that it brought him a standing ovation from the word-weary Washington audience. automatically Gravitate towards If Harriman can repeat this per- Harriman, although he has been generally identified with forelsn policy, is a more pa. c sionntcly convinced New or Fair Dealer than is generally realized. The Northern liberal wing of the Democratic party, as represented by Amei - formance at the New York dinner, he will become a man to watch. And he will certainly become \ man to watch... very carefully, if Governor Stevenson continues 1o run away from the Democratic nomination. · » Dear Miss Dix: I'm in love with a young man in the service. Before I met him he had been engaged to another girl. We had gone steady quite a while before he went into Lhe Army, then we corresponded regularly. He said he loved me, and seemed very sincere. When he came home on his first furlough, I only saw him twice. W? did continue to correspond, :.o\vevcr. On his next furlough he went out with his ex-fiancee, who has now :.hrown him over and become en- O aged to someone else. I suppose [ should just forget^him, but I love him anyway. Elaine Answer: You'd be foolish lo ke too many chances on getting seriously hurt, but if the young man is footloose again, and shows evidence of wanting to go with you, you might give him another chance. Perhaps he's learned his lesson about fickle women. Men in service arc under so much tension that their actions often are inconsistent. An understanding girl at the other end of the mail line is the best insurance for a.return lo normality. If you" can musler the patience, try to be that girl!

Answer: .You are too young to be going seriously with a boy. If,the difference in height worries you now, remember you're still growing while Ihe boy friend has, in all probability, attained h i s full growth, so the difference in stature may become greater.
