The Supreme Court last year knocked out the Fair Trade Act.'Thin act had the effect of excluding from liability to the anti-trust laws those retail stores which agreed to'sell certain goods at prices fixed by the manufacturer*. In the action 1 it; 'takes oh legislative measures now before jt, the House of Representatives, which will be the first of the two tranches of · Congress to act,' can either over-ride this court or stand .by It* decision. ' · Speaking solely In the interests of the country's 150 million consumers, ft would certainly appear that Congress In this case can best serve the people by taking no ac- · tlon at all. In other w6rds, by letting stand the decision of the Supreme Court. ' Among t h e . principal commodities whose prices are fixed by fair trade laws are some, but not all, Ifquors, drugs, electrical appliances, cosmetics, snofrts equipment and clothing. Fair trade laws are in effect in 45 states. i · · · · ;: ·· " What the fair trade laws means in the way of higher prices is indicated In ·' survey taken · few years ago Jby' Fortune Magazine. Summarized, the s u r v e y showed: ^IrA'tomparlson of 117 branded drug Items showed that-85 cost about'one-third lesi iniWuishingtom, '»D.

Fifty-four fair trade drug items cost an average of 16;2 per cent more on the 1 east bank of the Mississippi (Illinois), whlere fair trade Is legal, than on the St. Louis side (Missouri), where it is not." JQ. Forrest-; Walker, economist . for Mncy's department store in New York, for years a leader In the fight against fair trade Inwfl, testified before a congressional committed In February: ' · : . · ' - / · t"Privat« price-fixing invariably and inevitably works against consumers. Public policy requires the protection of millions of consumers; not the .'self-interest of a handful of manufacturers and retailers." -The late Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes, of- the Supreme Court, stated in connection with the case of the Dr. Miles Medmnl Company: "The complaintnnt having sold its product at prices satisfactory to itself, the public is entitled to whatever advantages may be derived from competition In the subsequent traffic." 'In other words,' Chief Justice Hughes was backing up the' ophiion of many an Arrierican that since our economy is based on ithc competitive, free-enterprise system, let's allow that system to function unfettered by restrictions favoring a.few. Congress has legislated to insure healthful competition among manufacturers.; Let ft act now to insurc-the same k i n d of competition-among retail stores, with the consequent price benefits to consumers. · :·· .' · ' Wade Jones THE WASHINGTON ' r Merry-Go-Round Br DREW PEARSON Paris--Biggest International guessing gnrns on this p the Atlantic--now that Ike has announced his date of'departure--is predicting who will replace him. . ' Hazards of the game are Increased by the fact that-the joint-chiefs of staff and Elsenhower arc at odds over'the successor, Ike wanting his close friend, Gen, Al Gruenther, and Gen, Omar Bradley favoring Gen. Matthew. Hidgway. : "Uncle Omar," as he is affectionately called in the Army, got'a little, peeved during the Lis- bon'conference when'Ike did not come there himself but sent Gruenther--for the obvious purpose of letting the other nations get better acquainted win.him and breaking Al in at the job, · i ' i "'Uncle Omar's private reaction was: "Ike ain't no king-maker." And he proceeded to get his back up and root harder than ever (or Hidgway. Pros arid cons of the dispute lire: 1, The Europeans like Gruenther, feel that he understands.their problems; also consider Rldg- way too much of a fighting man, that his name is linked witb a most unpopular war, that .even his paratrooper Insignia and the hand grenade on h(* blouse link him--distastefully--with war. And few Americans appreciate how: little Europe wants war. \ · 1. The Joint chiefs In Washington consider Gruenther too young, and handicapped by lack of combat experiences; that Hidgway his shown great leadership not only In battle, but in handling Japanese'political problems. They believe EuropB needs.hli dynamic, energetic personality. Compromise now being discussed Is to appoint colorful Field Marshal Montgomery of England is Ike's immediate successor. This would please the British. Then, utter the end of the Korean war. Rldgway would replace him. · By Trans-Atlantic pioellneMPhen President Truman cruised down the Potomac last week end, he took two significant visitors flong--Os- car Ewlng,-'federal security administrator, and Clark Clifford, former Whit* House counsel, now count*) for Phillip Petroleum and chief booster for itf friend, Sen. Bob Kerr of Oklahoma . . . Behind this was the new Truman strategy of grooming Ewlng 19 the Democratic nominee, with either Senator Kerr or Senator Russell running for vice, president i . . Ewlng, a true-and- trusted New Dealer, Is hated by the medical profession, loved by labor and minority group* i . . Paradoxically he's hi the position of having been counsel for the powerful, conservative, pro-Republican .Aluminum Corporation .of America; also was the law partner of Charles Evans Hughe.,. Jr. . . . Truman thinks .that, despite Swing's crusade for compulsory medical Insurance and the opposition of the doctors, he would make a great campaigner. In fact, the president nas-tnfd friends he personally would make some ·neclal speeches attacking the American Medical Association In Ewlng's behalf.,.. ... 'Along the boulevards--There's almost as much Interest hi tin U. S. elections among the French, ai among Americans. That's partly be- eaustom of the main candidates Is right-here on their doorstep; al»o because,on the outcome of the November, elections depends the future . defanM and peace of .Europe ,.. . v Europeans make no. secret of their belief that if Taft Is elected they might as well fold up the North Atlantic Pact . . . Regardless of the usual snip- Ing at Uncle Sum, there's a great deal of .genuine friendship for the American people among the Trench. The Commies have done their best-to kill it, but they can't. For Instance, there is much Interest In the Missouri flood and sympathy for Its victims. Frenchmen find it hard to realize that the area flooded Is one-half the size' of France! . . . Andres Plcard, who helped organize the French gratitude train, generously wanted to stnrt a drive among thcTisnch people to help the Missouri flood victims. 'uPr?"^' f, e GauIIe 1 had »" appointment with De Gaulle for an Intenflew but did not keep It. After the time was set for 5:30 p. m., he sent one of his aides around to explain that the Inter- View must be off the record, I explained that I was not much Interested In an off-thc-record Interview, but the nldc phoned back later to soy that 'mon general" was adamant. In tint case I replied, I »R; ·tot. Inti-rnstpri | n seeing the general. Hint, I /presumed, ended the matter. But at 5:45-De GatiMo's headquarters called, complaining that I was'late, that the Interview was set for 5:30. "You havs misunderstood," I replied. "The Interview is canceled. I am not com- see the general." ... . It was FDR who described De Gnullo as fancying himself a cross between Joan of Arc and Clcmenceau." Many Frenchmen still remember that description . . . I also recall Bob'Parker* story of how DC Gaulle came to be where he Is. In the spring, of 1940, Bob,, then'representing the Associated Press,'was in the lobby of the hotel at Bordeaux as British, American and top French brass Were trying to evacuate ahead of the on-rushing Nazi army.- The U. S.. military attache to France, remarked to a group :of newsmen gathered in the hotel .lobby; "Where can we-get a good French military man to rally French forces In exile?" .. . "There's General de Gaulle over there," said Parker. "He's a pretty good tank commander." . . . Thus was launched DC Gaulle's career. Trans-Atlantic politics--Retirement of Sen. Tom .Connally of Texas was greeted with great enthusiasm by the French; not so by the British. The French-didn't like Tom's blast at them, didn't rcnllzc thnt it was forced on him by the election cnmpnlgn and the needling of his opponent; Price Daniels'. .-. The London Times, on the other hnnd, 1 paid Tribute to Connally's long career and his battle for European cooperation; also bemoaned the passing of all but one «Er--I'll Sit This One Out" U. S. senator who still wears a frock coat. (The other Is Clyde Hoey of North Carolina.) ... Th« French plan to promote Gen. Alphonse Juln to be ''marshal of France," which will give him enough rank, they hope, to command all NATO ground forces on the continent . . . The jockeying for more command in the Western Kuropean army Is still intense, and the British still are burnt up over Adm. Robert Carney's being top dog in the Mediterranean Fleet, where, they say, British interests predominate . . . Regardless of domestic reaction to Truman's seizure of the steel mills, reaction in Europe is that he cut the ground out from, under Communist propaganda. If ' Stewart Holbrook, in Maine for a series of articles on the lumber industry, was passing a local hoose-gow one evening when he saw a half dozen prisoners saunter out in single file while the jailer eyed them paternally. As they reached the main street 1 the jailer hollered after them;- "Remomber, 'if ye fellers ain't back here by ten sharp, ye'll be locked out." *· * * When a certain WcsFCoast Him magnate announced he was going en a fishing trip with some cronies, his. wife volunteered to find a cook for the party. The meals said cook provided were, to put It mildly, God awful, and the magnate finally admitted he could stand them ho longer. "What could you expect?" asked one of his pals, "from a Pinkertoh cook?" * * * Now that Robert Hutchins has become an executive of the Ford Foundation, h°'s received so many requests for financial assistance he's thinking of renaming his estate "Itching Palms." * * * A Mirror for Princess is a book written from the heart by a powerful king to serve as a guide for his favorite son and ordained successor. A new edition has just been published but the original was'taken-down by-the king's scribes away back In 1081. The king's name was Ka! Ibn Iskander, and he ruled over a land called Gurgen. Furthermore, the advice he doled out over eight hundred years ago still sounds pretty good today. For instance (the good prince being a cannibal): "Once you engage in battle it is inexcusable to display any sloth or hesitation. You must breakfast on the enemy before he dines on you." On the subject of honesty he advised, "Be ready of speech, my son, yet never tell lies and do not gain the reputation of being a liar. Be known for veracity, so that if ever in an emergency you utter a lie it will be .believed." .. j. * * » Mr. Honeyfuggler Is looking for.a new job. He lost his old 'one when he thoughtlessly introduced his bird-brained bride to the head of the firm at an office get-together. "So you're my "Henry's boss," ; gurgled Mrs. Honeyfuggler. "He's told me so much about you, Mr. Lcgree!" Questions And Answers Q--What was the earliest method of telling time? A--The first clocks were the marked-off shadows of trees. ' Q--What mammal changes the brown of its fur for white during the winter season? A--The ermine or stoat is a weasel that turns white in winter.

When Margaret Truman's ' piano started all this, back in 1949, by nearly going through the floor- of .her sitting-room into the dining-room- below, , there was a frightful' fuss and f u r o r ; and it '-was found, that the whole White House was. about to tumble d o w n -- · what with old -age and .termites in its beams.- · · · . A - good many people thought it simpler, and several hundreds-of-thousands of dollars cheaper, to pull down the whole building and rebuild from the sub-cellars up. But a good many others found that idea and maintained abhorrent, that' the ate student in anthropology. .,,«=.,.... ,,, .... - -. As I See It (in Washington) the subiect of creation was i Mrs. J. W. Fulbright, Guest to be discussed by experts ' '"-' '-' first, then rehearsed among experts, and then by the audience, caught me for the first-time in many months; Lessie Read and I fared forth and reached the handsome, ample and commodious Student Union, but found this discussion was to be held in the Game Room,-which is up endless steps. (I am supposed to avoid steps,) but the subject of creation had gripped me, so we ambled up. There were rather few in attendance, ft seemed to me, for such a big-sub»3ct, but there Avas a panel of five assigned to the subject and a very nice moderator. I could not hear too wall, there was almost too much space and a bit of reverberation. The audience was largely male. The arguments were not new. The question seems ever to be "Is creation evolutionary or purely creative? Do we believe in God or nature or only nature minus the divine spark?" As an old woman who has observed for some time, I want to add my word that I belfeve every human is the · result. of the Creative Force (God) and the evolutionary force (nature). One spark /of Creator and many months of evolution go into the production of life. It is ever so in all life, human, aru'- mal and vegetable. One man tells us that the universe is three billion years old and that creation takes six minutes. Even so, without the dinine spark- of nature there is no creation. And without i the well ordered processes of evolution there is no harvest. Man with his everlasting urge to be supreme has great difficulty adjusting himself to being a partner of evolution. An equal of God doesn't even satisfy him. Woman has served a tremendous role, just ty ! letting: him be supreme, giving him a theater for his urge.-Woman is the depository of evolution and sustenance. Man the creative spark. Those participating in the iliscusston were Dr. James Bales, Harding College in Searcy; the Rev. Bill Gibson, Presbyterian .student pastor, moderator; Dr. Robert Rowden, chemistry faculty at UA; Harlan Ferryman, graduate student in history; Major Wilson, graduate history student; Miller Williams, gradu- floors trod by Lincoln, Wilson,- and other great men, ' must NEVER be torn down. The latter group proved the more articulate and won its , point--in theory. . . As nearly as I can make out, the actual performance of rebuilding the White House, without tearing it down, was rather like removing a large cake from inside its icing--and then fitting in a new cake. The facade of the White House was kept, and always visible, at 1600 Pennsylvania . Avenue but. inside that icing, things went on-in a big way. Steel beams took the place of wooden ones, concrete walls replaced lath and plaster, and air-conditioning and copper plumbing moved fn. The White House now is, I am sure, and should be, supremely .soundly built--for the ages, and for the many families who will come and go through its portals. From the outside, it looks quite as it used to, only fresher and tidier somehow. The grounds are-a dream of ; loveliness, with forsythia and quince and magnolia and weeping cherries and tulips and pansies in full bloom right now; and the grass is as green as I wish ours ivere. 1600 this If you walk past Pennsylvania Avenue spring, and stop to look in across the · grounds, I think you'll have quite a feeling of pride - of - ownership. Y o u should--for if you pay taxes (ouch!)--you're part owner! Dear Miss Dlx: I am engaged to a very nice boy who has, however, one fault I find it very hard to take. I'd call it showing off. When we're out in compnny, he delights in making witty remarks to attract attention. I don't find these remarks either witty or funny: in fact, they embarrass me. V'hen we're alone he's complete- ly different, but when we go out he just loves to clown. I've asked him to stop, but he says he just enjoys a good time. Aside from this weakness, he's very' dependable. He is 22 and I am 21. .
