Any American should be well satfsfied with either of these choices, since their qualifications, though different in certain respects, are almost equally outstanding. '· Ridgway is obviously the more glamorous figure, wKh that sense of drama that often adds measurably to a soldier s appeal as a field commander. He has vrovcd himself an able general and administrator in the unenviable task of successor to General MacArthut in Tokyo. "There is an understandable' feeling that n man who can step into so difficult a snot, as the Far East/command can do it again-in Europe. Though the "trategte mid tactical problems will »11 be differ«nt, Ihere are definite basic similarities between the two fobs. Both call for high »ov mlnistrallve talents, for the ability to , blond the efforts of many nations in a common cause. General Gruenther is another story .-He Id regarded as one of the greatest military brains in the last 20 years of American history. His understanding 'of the strategic aspects of European defense fs unsui-pass- · ed. He has been a mountain of strength in support of Eisenhower. But his background as a behind-the- »cenes staff general, both now and during World War II, hfts robbed him of that color that usually infuses the. . personality of a successful field commander. Gruenther f i t « more the_picture of an extremely competent' coiwrfltiort executive. Nevertheless, 'this phase of his'makeup cannot be said to disqualify him for the NATO job. It is a tribute to Britain's recognition of fundamentals that'the British press has been trumpeting the case of- Gruenther. The British do not argue against Ridr- way. They simply feel he is most useful where he is, and that GYuenthtr's year of experfence on the European scene make him eminently suited to pick up where Eisenhower will leave off, Gruenther may or may not get the job. But it is real progress when a man of hii great but publicly unspectacular abilities . .can gain substantial support for a post which you'd normally expect -· all NATO 'countrfes to demand be filled by a com-- mander with proved qualities of draniallc leadership. It is rewarding to realize that the issue of Eisenhower's successor can be considered fairly on so high a plane of discussion. Whoever the final choice, there need be no feeling that the question was clouded or distorted by resort to pettiness and unrealistic argument. .The case is being studied on its merits.

THE WASHINGTON Mefry-Go-Round By DREW PEARSON Washington--It was supposed "confidential and unfiled" but lo be kept i i j i j j i M prospective delegate recently hit Senator Kefauvtr of Tennessee for "expense money" in return for his support at the Democratic convention. The would-be delegate is Warner Bloomberg of Gary, Ind., who hinted tlgn!.(ic?!'iiy 1M ex- ofnset'al Ihe 1948 convention ran around $1,000 per delegate. But he soliciterl the wrong candidate' irt crime-busting Senator Kafauver, who may end up.Investigating Instead of paying him. Bloomberg made his shocking request for money In a confidential letter, dated March 20, to Kefauver's campaign headquarters. "1 would prefer that this letter be kept con- f i d c n l i a l and untiled," Bloomberg wrote cautiously "I have been approached by some friends of mine who have long been active in the Indiana Democratic Party . . . They indicated lo me that they would be happy to bring about my election as one of Indiana's delegales to the national convention. Of course, there Is always that slip between cup and lip In politics of this sort--but the offer presents a good possibility. I have tentatively accepted." The Indiana ward heeler then got down lo business. *' * + '·Because of the expense Involved--it was estimated at $1,000 per delegate in" 1948--it is often difficult to get anyone lo take the job in such ·poor"district as the Second,.where 1 live . . . While I can take care of any personal expenses In Chicago and I am willing to sacrifice a week a Ion in pay, I understand that there are lees or contributions or some such running Into several hundred dollars which would be a very heavy burden for me. I probably could solicit some funds from friends. Can national headquarters mike up Ihe rest, presuming I am elected? Queried by this column. Bloomberg explained- that he needed the money to pay a $200 registration fee. The Democratic National Commltlce d«ni«d, however, that convention delegates are charged any fees or contributions. Bloomberg admitted lo this column that he lived only .37 miles from Chicago, that he could room friends during the convention and that he expected financial help from his labor union or the local Democratic organization. So Senator Ktfauver would like to know what is at the bottom of this strange request for a financial touch "running into several hundred dollars. Bloomberg confessed 'to this column that his Idler had been a "political error," but denied that he had any "ulterior motives.' "I am Just a political amateur," he pleaded, "I didn't ask Senator Kefauver for any money. 1 asked .lack O'Brien {Kefauver's campaign ' manager) if he could help me out. After all, h«" isn't entirely poverty-stricken." In his letter to Kefauver headquarters, Bloomberg also added that "for the lime being, I would have to remain in the background of the campaign for Keftuver In this slate." Kefauver, however, indicated that he is hot Interested In subsidizing delegales, though he would like to catch someone trying it. Mole--The Republican Party in the South IB notorious lor the system of "buying" up delegates, and now it looks as If the system were spreading. The truth Is that the American people may elect a president, but they have little to say about nominating him. Delegates such as Bloomberg are usually hand-picked, listen to the parly bosses or the highest bidder, nol the people. To jet Ihe views of Ihe American people, this column has been conducting a post-card poll. Write your choice for Democratic candidate on the back of a post card and mail if to'Box 1952!

Mobilization officials are talking privately in terms of a tremendous, 4,000,000-ton stockpile. This was- brought out at a closed-door moel- Inf of mobllizallon chiefs, including production, boss Manly Fleishrosnn, atomic energy chairman Gordon Dean and aluminum czar Samuel Anderson.- "To avoid the possibility of having to build rapidly for the third time to meet war. needs." declared Anderson, "it is considered lo establish, after civilian requirements have been met, a 4,000.000-ton stockpile objective, which could be attained through an official aluminum policy of purchasing metal not required for other uses . . , "Barring all-out war," he. predicted, "a stockpile of 1,000.000 tons of auminum could be accumulated by 1960 on the basis of currently planned expansion." He suggested that the stockpile objective could be met by limltin.k civilian consumption to the present level u n t i l i960, but foresaw "strong opposition" lo "depriving the civilian area for any length of time in order .to accumulate 3 government stockpile during a limited mobilization period." Instead, Anderson urged filling civilian orders first and stock-piling only the surplus. The government would become the "residuary legn- tvp" of the aluminum production which the civilian economy did not want, he,explained. Dr. Zay Jeffries of the Nalional ficscaivh Council warned that long storage of a l u m i n u m may result in deterioration. "On contact with moist air. aluminum absorbs hydrogen, and a coating is formed whlcrr has to be mrlled off," he explains. Fleischmann suggested this could he solved Matte*.

A program to meet the needs of members already in the service, such as round-robin letters, visits to camps and a spiritual program also was outlined. Demolition work on the Huntsville CCC camp has been in progress for the past two weeks by 58 CCC boys from the Shilo camp, near Russellville.

The problem was how to avoid crippling election year 'economies" In Ihe defense and foreign aid apprnprialions. And Ihe meeting's most heartening incident was Senator Russell's forthright promise to fight hard to sustain both these vital programs. This sort of simple, national- minded courage is one main reason why so many thinking; Democrats are to be heard, nowadays. Fruitlessly wishing "nick Russell wasn't from the deep South," Rite.- could thus become a serious presidential candidate. In the present instance, moreover, Russell's courage should have the most far-reaching results. As their chosen leader for the Chicago convention, Senator Russell can carry with him many Southern senators who might otherwise support meat-axe cuts in defense and foreign aid. With Ihe Eisenhower Republicans also voting for these two programs in which their candidate is so directly interested, the outlook for sensible Senate action is unexpectedly favorable. Even the less popular foreign aid program may not be cut much more than 51,000,000,000, which is half the most optimistic original forecast. The intervenlion of a single individual may Ihus go far io preserve Ihe conlinuily of the most important national policies. Yet the likelihood of · another hair's breadth escape from suicide cannot conceal the existence of some thing very like a suicidal impulse in Congress al this time. The symptoms were only too clear in the vote of the House, to cut overall defense appropriations by S4.2 billion and to forbid the Defense Department lo spend S6 billions of funds already appropriated for 1953. The meaning of this House action (which was engineered by the old Republican isolationist- Southern extremist coalition) can LOW be spelled out in terms of its pecific effect on the Air Force.

XV · AX ARNO was not as taD as George Kendall had imagined, but he was of tremendous girth and, in a rugged, muscular fashion, ne was handsome. He had dark hair and eyes, but his eyes were continuously moving, roaming, over George's features. "I've seen you some place before," he said to George Kendall. "I never forget a voice onc« I hear it." George Kendall thought of the phone call and hoped Max Arno wouldn't remember it. If Marilyn found out that he was working for her father, the whole scheme would go up in smoke. "Lots of people mistake me for someone else," George said, pass- Ing over it lightly. He sat down In a chair opposite Max Arno, while Marilyn went Into the kitchen to make some coffee. He tried to relax and look comfortable, but he could feel Arno's dark eyes probing him, staring, | trying to remember. "You have n nice place here, Mr. Arno," he suld, forcing the i conversation. | Arno grunted. Without ofl«rlng j George one. he removed tho cellophane from a cigar and (truck ' » match to light It. It wai plainly evident that h« rtKntcd George's prctonct. I "What did you '.ant to i«t me 'about?" Max Artie, said through » naie of cigar smoke. "Anr» what (about all thoit cop* that came i her* yeiuirrlay," I George had btitn expecting th* question and he was ready. The cops were guilty of mistaking him [or someone else, George said. They came to the wrong address. 'As for me," George went on, 'I'm a free lance writer," he lied. 'I'm looking around for stories about little towns to sell to big newspapers." 'A newspaper gu/, huh?" Max's manner became respectful. 'Of a sort. Naturally when I aoked around Seneea Springs I leard of you. People here think you're quite a man." Marilyn came into the room and sat down close to Arno. "Your career niigK make quite a story. And the gymnasium you operate Is worth somelhing in Ihls day and age when women Ihink about reducing. So I came down to your place to get a personal interview. What do you think of the Idea?" "Newspaper guys always make me talk like I didn't use good English," asid Max. "Yo"u know- due and dose," "Maxl" Marilyn squeezed Max's arm. "It'« a wonderful idea. Your whole life story In print and Had will see what a big, wonderful man you really are." · « · pEORGE KENDALL, nodded and hoped It wouldn't make Marilyn think Max was more wonderful, but It wouldn't be printed anyhow. Max Arno't face lit up ai he began to jce the possibilities nnd his hesitation vanished. Soon Max was talking and there was no way to stop him. Ills thick lips rambled endlessly, the words flowed in a continuous, never-ending ((ream. Ha loved to talk about himself and George found hlmteU running out of pnpor In his notebook. Ha shuddered illghtly ai he listened to Max Arno and ring conquest*, He boajtml of broken urir.s and twilled necks, of cheering crowds and rlctorle! by the dozen. And than, he related, he had grown tired of it all and was now ·oted lo condemn this country to permanent inferiority in the air. The picture painted by the president's budget was gloomy enough, in all conscience. Wifh the officially planned build-up, we were 10 have 96 air groups In 1953, 120 groups in 19S4, and 126 groups in 1955. The stretch-oul was already dangerous. The joint chiefs o! staff have defined 126 groups as.,J| Ihe minimum reasonable peacetime strength in the air. And we were to wait three years to attain this minimum slrength. The House vote in effect said that we can afford to risk wailing five years or even more before we are prelected. Unless reversed in the Senate, the House vote will impose cuts in materiel procurement, and personnel which will flatten out the whole curve, giv- inu us only 83 air groups in 195.1, and only 104 in 1955. The 196- group program caimol be realized, until 3957, if it can be realized at all. Both the Strategic Air Force, which is our great'deter- rent to aggression, and the Trac- tical Air Force, which is our only home defense, will be crippled by whal the House has done. * + * A few House members, like determined old Chairman Carl Vinson of the Military Affairs Committee, fought hard against this election year madness. -Bui. Rep. Frederic R. Coudert of New York, bellowing slogans supplied by the Chamber of Commerce and the National Manufacturers Association bulled the cut Ihrough with Southern help. And now the damage lias lo he repaired by the Senate, if possible. There is only one excuse (and 11 is nol a very good one) for this way of carrying on the nations business, which makes American defense planning resemble "Ihe Perils of Pauline." As one of the House members said, they wanted to "teach a lesson to the military, because they felt, but could not prove, that defense was costing too much. There is no doubt at all that the unit cost of American military striking power is shockingly too high, partly because of other political votes of the House itself on U M.T. and the like.

Well I didn't bring my camera with me," Kendall said, "but I'd ike to get some pictures of you and the gymnasium and also a few shoti of Seneea Springs." Arno rolled up his sleeve and glanced at his watch. "I can't give you no more time. There's gonna a carnival benefit tomorrow night and I'm on the athletic committee and we have to have a meeting." "Maybt later tonight?" KendaU suggested* "Naw, I'm taking sweetie pie," he pointed at Marilyn "to a dance." "Wait a minute," Marilyn put in. "Why can't Mr. Kendall tag along to the dance. He can take pictures there. In lact, while you're at the meeting I could show Mr. KendaU our little town and then we'll both mttt you back at the dance hall." Arno (runted.

I Patsy F. j Answer: The whole answer to your problem is contained in a few words you added almost as an afterthought Are you so blind' that you can't see their signifi- ance? "His mother's funeral!" To young boy who presumably was evoted lo his mother . (most oungsters are) her death would e been a shock overshadowing, t least for the time being, all .her emotion. Also, from the asual trealment you give his loss, (T. JIT/ . lime of Irouble, and if you failed to bring, or attempt io bring, any consolation to your young man during his bereavement, it is quite possible you have lost him forever. I wonder if, even up to this time, you have written a word of condolence to him. Don't Date This Buy Dear Miss nix: A friend of mine is going to he married but is not " engaged.
