Yet few insist jffiojr it,.^ ,,,,,_, __________ i;.Qhe;may easily arjnie that In'vrew of our economic "laws" it is perfectly natural that home building should have followed the course it has taken-- that thn builder and lot-seller should' try to get the maximum dollar out of any given piece of ground. Th«. argument overlooks one factor. however, that is just as compelling as any economic law. That is this: You are not selling strips of bacon when you sell lots.

You -are buildintr a city, a neighborhood, a way of life.- Yoii arc putting a powerful, perhaps permanent, imprint upon the land.

What Is the use of knowing better if we do not act upon what we know? Bruce Biossnt THE WASHINGTON Mefry^Go-Round . If DREW PEAMON · Washington--','Call Mt Madam" P«r!e M*»t«, U.S. minister to Luxembourgh, had «n int*r»st- inj experience with President Truman jn retard to General Elsenhower. While visiting In the United Slates, Mri. Mcsta was asked by the president to make tome speeches before women's clubs explaining the goals at the North Atlantic pact and the work of General Elsenhower. Mrs. Mcsta did so, found women's groups, responsive and interested. But in Washlncton she reported to the president that she hnd received a most unfavortble reaction from Democratic leaders wherever «h« hid (one. "They didn't ll!(e my making talks that helped General Eisenhower," she explained. Th« pretident thought a minute, then said: "You gp right on making the speeches." it w«s quit* clear that he regarded the pence and unity of Europe as more Important than any political htlp to be derived by Eisenhower. * * * Behind the rash of prison riots are two things: j, th* population of the United States has Increased end with It our criminal population; 2, molt prisons have remained woefully behind, ' .The" N«w Jersey penitentiary at Trenton, wher* one of the first outbreaks occurred, dates back almost to the days of George Washington. Other Jails almost as antiquated include the Maryland state penitentiary at Baltimore, built in,U05, and the. Massachusetts penitentiary at Charleston, which dates back almost to Revolutionary days. The Railway, N. J., so-called stale prison - farm, which 1 visited the other day, is relatively modern, built in 1890. But it looks as out-of-date as an English, castle and Is surrounded by such a suburban area that farming is out of the 'question. Built,to house 700 Inmates, a total of 1,000 '.·in now crammed behind Its dank walls. ....One of the gripes of the Rahway prisoners, -and a-legitimate-one,-Is that they arc not permitted · hearing before the New Jersey Parole Board. When a prisoner Is up for parnlc, a persons! hearing is standard in most stales. A prisoner is permitted to appear before the parole board, state his case for parole, and answer questions. This gives th'e parole board an oppor- tunity'to judge the merits of his case and de."Cide 'first hand whether he should be released. In New Jersey,- however, the Parole Board won't heir prisoners, bases its judgment merely on written reports. * * * In contrast to New Jersey's antiquated methods, I have cat In California's hugh Folsotn penitentiary listening to the Parole Board consider the case of prisoner after prisoner. Us board Is tinder a Negro, Walter Gordon, who played football with Gov. Earl Warren at the University of California, and who is regarded as one of thft outstanding penal experts of the natlpn. 1 listened as a Negro murderer from Arkansas cam* before the board. He migrated to California with the "Arkiet" to pick fruit. Charles Dull*!, · former California police officer, now a member ot the Parole Board, had every detail of the criminal's record at his fingertips, cross-examined him carefully, brought out the story of his shooting of another man in a quarrel over the prisoner's wife. Chairman Gordon, without dwelling on the tact that many of his race have had little education in the past, then developed the fact that 1 this Inmate had never learned to read or \vrlte until he entered prison. Now he had progressed to the. fourth grade. The prisoner was not paroled. But hope was held out to him that if he progressed further IP. his prison schooling, parole would conic, in the not-too-distant future. This is the kind of p'ersonal study given by. every 'modern Parole Board, but which is not given in New Jersey. This is on* reason for the. riots. * * * Another reason is the fact that prison budgets are appropriated by state legislatures 18 months or so in advance. Then the cost of living goes up, the budget is automatically lessened, and food is curtailed. Another reason is the manpower shortage. Good guards are hard to get at current meager salaries. Many guards are aged. One of them, 69 years old, was released by rioting convicts at Jackson, Mich. He was too old even to he a hostage, · Arriving back in the United States from Europe, I got a phone call to come to Hahway, N. J., where striking prisoners had asked me. to act as mediator. I didn't know exactly what it was all about, but took a -taxi from the airport to the prison, offered my services to Warden William Lagay. Fir one hour I waited outside the big, barricaded door. Warden Lagay .did not even do me the courtesy of acknowledging my message. * * * After the Harriman dinner in New York, a group of big-city Democrats convened in the hotel suite of Democratic State Chairman Paul Fltipatrick to lick their wounds over Governor Stevenson's withdrawal from the presidential ·lists. The meeting brought memories of other conclaves by big-clly bosses, notably that which put across Harry Truman at Chicago in 1944. Jack Arvey, the mayor-maker of Chicago, was there; also John C. Carr, right hand man of Gov. Paul Dcvers nnd Democratic commit- teomnn for Massachusetts; together w i t h a Inrty reoresentatlvo of Mayor Dave I^wrpncc nf Pittsburgh..and Mnyor John Kenny of Jersey City. : ' ' Main motive of the meeting was to find some way of persuading Governor Stevenson to change his mind.

XIII PEOHGE KENDALL gave Marilyn Sutworth his address at the hotel with instructions to ar- rr.nge an appointment for him with Chief Big Bear at some later date. After he left the phone, he Joined Verna Denton In the lobby, where she had gone while George wit phoning. "What gives?" she asked. "Plenty,* said George. "Chief Big Bear -- M a x Arno in private life--Is a big time operator. He's having hay shipped all th* way from Texts Just (o take Marilyn Sutworth on a hayrlde." "Romantic, Isn't ItT" "He's a sharpie," George said. "Unless I miss my guess, this wrestler Is going to pop the question on that hayrlde. He might even have hnd a full moon shipped from someplace." George put on his topcoat j "What are you going to do?" "Stop him by stopping the bay," : said George. "Let's go," I . . . iQEORGF. parked the rented ear j " about 100 fee* away from the · freight terminal. From the car he [could see itveral men unloading ii f night car arid carrying bales tf hay to · Uwk standing nearby, i Th« mm who wai apparently dl. reeling the operation had Ms back turned to George, but he guessed that this was probably the Big Bear, in person. ' . Dusk had settled over the freight terminal and it was impossible to get a close look at Max Arno. He was wearing a leather jacket and without question, he was massive. "I still don't see what we can do to stop them." Verna said. "I'll think of something," he said. The minutes dragged and he puffed through three cigarets, but finally the truck was loaded and the man in the leather Jacket climbed into the driver's seat. When the' truck had started to move, Kendall switched on the parking lights and started slowly after it He stayed close behind, needing and waiting for the first traffic light. "Do you know what you're doing?" Verna asked. 'Quiet. I never got you In trouble yet, did I?" And then it happened. The light up ahead turned red and there were no other cars In sight. "Don't let the motor IU11," h* said and Jumped out of the car. He reached the truck and pulled his clgaret lighter out. He put his hand through the wooden guard rail and reaching toward the balls of hay, he flicked the lighter. The hay (puttered, a stream of bluish smoke began to curl skyward, and slowly, the flame gainer) life. Kcn- o'iill raced back to the car, put It In reverse and backed up several hundred yard*. Ai he wai turn- Ing the sedan around, ke saw the man In the leather Jacket Jump out of the truck, but the blaze was out of control now and the hay- ride was going up In « puff at smoke. K«ndall gajsed the ear and the machine leaned away Into the darkness, 'Now we'r* arsonists," Verna noted. All's fair In lov* and war," he said. "No hay, no hayrlde, and no kayride, no marriage proposal. At least, not tonight, anyway." He was awake early th* neit morning, shaved, put on a clean shirt and met Verna in the diner across the street. "You're gonna be a public enerny.;if;you keep this up," Verna said; -She wai wearing the pink nylon 'blouse that be had bought her for Christinas. "Look at th* paper, will you?" It was on the front page. Two stories, replete with big headlines. The first wai about a mytterioiis Tom the Peeper who invaded Chief Big Bear'l gymnasium. Th* second told of a fir* of mysterious origin which destroyed a truck load of hay belonging to Mai Arno, also known as the wrestler Chief Big Bear. The truck driver, not Arno, had managed to get tht hay out of the truck to that his machine had only been acorched. "Well nobody can say we aren't giving Old Man Sutworth our best efforts." . · "Juit the tame 111 b* glad when this thing is over with and we g«t back to New York."

Eisenhower's most important pre- eonvention victories, except of cours* New Hampshire, which put th* on the road. The New York voting interestingly proved the inaccuracy of the initial estimates of Sen. Robert A. Tail's strength, as confidentially prepared by the senator's own lieutenants. These figures, which were tht basis of the original Taft bull-dozer strategy, gave him a New York potential of no less than 20 delegates. To bt sure, the 20 were expect«d to be mainly composed of "sleepers," who would only unveil their adherence to Taft at th* turning point in Chicago. Determining the number of sleepers in a 96-man delegation is naturally all but impossible. But after me severe defeat of most of the senator's open adherents in New York, the best local observers doubt that Taft ca"h count on more than four New York votes. Governpr Dewey says Taft will bnly get on«. In New York as elsewhere, in short, Senator Taft hj.s not made the showing, he at first counted on making. · * · As for the Pennsylvania _primary, it could be close to decisive. Th* important fact her* was hot the outcome of the contest for delegates. Only tight places were directly in dispute between the Tift »nd Eisenhower, forces, in Allegheny County; .where the Eisenhower people did well. The important fact in Pennsylvania wai, rather, the overwhelming turnout of Eisenhower enthusiasts --f»r more than 800,000 ol them --in a state wh«r* people rarely bother to vote in primaries, and in a primary with no rial contest to give it zest. It seems to be conceded;, even by S*n«tor Taft's Pennsylvania friends, that this turnout represents a genuine popular trend. General Eisenhower, who had no support whattver from the state organization, polled a vote very fur ahead of Sen, Edward Martin, for whom the organization went all-out. The big question remaining is whether this popular demonstration in his own state will b* heeded oy Pennsylvania's Governor, John S. Fine. As the man who personally controlled by-far th* largest number of Pennsylvania's 78 delegates, Governor Fine is in a position to make other politicians die of envy. Tli* primary does not bind him; he can vote his cattle as he please;. He has by far the largest block of uncommitted cattle still available. If Fine chooses Taft, thl* single gain will' offset almost all the senator's recent losses. And if he chooses Eisenhower, the spectacle of the Pennsylvania cattle jostling into the general's corral is likely to start a stampede: The owners of many pro-Taft delegations, in the South, for instance, will then be unable to revent their herds from joining the rush, · · · · The Eisenhower primary showing should influence Governor. Fine in the general's direction, as proof that Eisenhower at the head. of the ticket will help the-local Pennsylvania candidates. More-over, Governor Fine wants to back a winner, and he will undoubtedly be impressed by such recent developments as those in Tjxas and Colorado. In Colorado, dftpite the strong Taft stand of the able and admired Sen. Eugene D. Millikin, the Eisenhower forces now expect · to capture a majority of the delegation. And in Texas, the pro- Taft leaders of the established Republican organization are now thought to be unable to stem the strong Eisenhower surge in the state, except by holding a rump convention. But on the Taft side, Governor Fine is also subjected to extremely strong influences. The Grundy- Owlett-Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association machine is pro- Taft. Fine, who wants to control Republican politics in Pennsylvania, has got to live with Grundy and Owlett in his back yard. Fine himself, who reserves his highest admiration for Gen. Douglas MacArthur,, probably inclines personally towards the Ohio Senator. Then, too, he has had a sharp falling out with Pennsylvania Sen. James Duff, the boldest of the early Eisenhower backers. In this situation it is entirely 'possible that Fine will go either way. Since the Eis«nhower-Taft race is still very close, Fine's decision will probably determine such vital questions as. which delegation il to be seated if a contest develops in Texas. The stampede effect Fine can create has already been noted. In truth, barring unforeseen and almost revolutionary developments, it is quite possible that, the outcome of the Republican race will hang or which way Governor Fine makes up his mind. In these circumstances, 'it is at least 'certain, that the governor can have just about whatever he asks for, from either 'of the two camps. Dear Mist Dix: Two years ago I married a man who is abusive and an alcoholic. He spends his money on himself and for good times of his own. I have nursed him through several periods of illness and have tried to make a good home for him. I have had to work since we were married to support myself and keep the home together. I have two children by a previous marriage, and my husband bitterly resents them. His family tries to keep him from drinking, but they give me no co-operation when I try to ftop him. I left him once but he begged me for another r.-hance, promising he would do better. His promisis didn't last long. Now he has decided to leave town and start all over again somewhere else. 1 would have to leave my children if I went with him, and this 1 don't want to do. His family is very bitter toward me b -ciuise I feel my place is with my youngsters. He wants me to leave the children with their grandmother and go with him. Where does my duty lie? Margie Answer: While a mother's para* mount duty is to her of/spring, there ar« times when a little wholesome neglect may b* ex^r- cised for the possibility of a greater good. Such a case of divided loyalty arises in your case. If you want to stand on the actual question of obligation, your children come first. However, if there is a chance that your husband will rehabilitate himself in another town, and be willing to again assume his job as head of the family, I think it's worth some sacrifice on your part to help him. Be Sure They're Cared For You must first be sure that the children are well cared for; if their grandmother Is willing and able to take them, let them stay with her for a few months. Then you must have some assurance of your husband's good intentions. The best help for him would come through Alcoholics Anonymous, which you can locate through the telephone book of your nearest city| or through a hospital. He should also show some evidence of being willing to accept your children as part of the family when he is able to resume worV.
