' ' , . , . · · ,. f In Illfnols, Eisenhower polled upwards f of 135,000 in write-in votes. In Penrmyl- i vania, Taft collected close to 130,000 ; write-ins.' Taft's percentage of the Illinois vote was 73, against Eisenhowers 11 ner cent. Ike's share, of (he Pennsylvania Republican total was 76, against Taft 8 13 i per cent. . '· -.. * ... ,, ;' Both'write-in showings were creditable f under the circumstances. There was more j surface evidence of campaign effort be- I hind U-e's Illinois write-in than behind \ Taft's in Pennsylvania. 'But not all cam' paign work meets the eye, and it is possible some pretty earnest vote-drumming wns done by the Taft forces in Pennsylvania. '··'·· ' . . . ' ' . , , . . · The only f ah- conclusion to draw is that Illinois proved itself good Taft territory mid,Pennsylvania showed solid Eisenhower leanings. It is too bad these two candidates were not actually matched on the ballot in both states, since ii fair" test would have been hnd in two of the most popular sectors of tlie country- ,,. " Eisenhower was kept off the Illinois ballot because hrs campaign leaders considered it an unfavorable state. Tnft was held off the ballot in Pennsylvania for much the same reason, We may discount the senator's statement that he'stayed oiit because the result of the popularity test was not binding on delegates. Neither is it in Illinois, New' ^Hampshire or West Virginfa--all states Taft chose to enter. Illinois and Pennsylvania do not oiiit'e cancel each other. Tnft won 59 of 60 GOP delegates in Illinois, because the officially unpledged winners are actually pro-Taft 'organization candidates, It's another story in Pennsylvania, where Governor Fine and the Gruhdy- Owlctt organization control some 60 of the unpledged delegates ahd have not yet committed them to any candidate. Despite Ike's victory, Taft still may come out with a bin chunk of that delegate strength. Eisenhower's parallel triumph in New York is of a slightly different order. He has been conceded the great bulk of New York's 96 GOP delegates all along,- though Taft people have now and then claimed as many as 20. Ike supporters won all but a few'of the 11 disputed berths, and thus the general will have close to 90 additional voles at Chicago. Fairly it may he said that Pennsylvania and New York ran true to form. They brought the GOP race closer to the decisive plage, but they did not actually tip the scales cither way. Bruce Biossat *. Let us fear God and we shall to fear man.--Glmndi. THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Rotmd By DREW PEARBOM Washliuton--A lot of people arc still speculating that President Truman may chunge ms mind and consent to be drafted by tho Uemo- crltlc national convention at the last minute-(.-specially If the Republicans nominate rait, whom the president does not like. A close friend of Mr. Truman's, who once «-rvcd under him as an ambassador and accompanied him to Potsdam, had this in mind when he told him lhat he should not put himself in the position where he could not ultimately be drafted. The situation might be such, this elder statesman cautioned, where the demands of the party would be too compelling. "You know me," replied the president decisively. "I'm o mule. And when I make up my mind nothing can change it." * * * Chip Bohlen, State Department counselor, walked in to the Slalc Department staff mn- ference lit'12:30 last Thursday with perturbation written over his usual sunvc visage. "Hold your huts," he exclaimed, then told how the president hod dropped a diplomatic bombshell at his press conference regarding an alleged "ultimatum" to Ilusslu in 1040. Since our Eourop'ean allies are on conslanl tcndcrhooks over our trigger-happy relations with Russia and constantly worry lhat we will drag them into war by just such an ultimatum, the State Deportment worked for nbout two hours preparing a diplomatic refutation of the president's off-the-cuff remark. The Stal6 Department couldn't say so, but it wan equally unhappy about the president's previous bubble about the possibility of seizing the press. Though he corrected this later, the State Department feared it might affect the fate of the freest and fairest newspaper In Bolivia, La Hazon. The new Bolvian government, which is pro- Argentln and has come Communist links, may well follow the example of Pcron and seize La Itazon exactly as he seized La Prensa. - * * * On top of this, American diplomats for some time have been arguing in the United Nations for complete freedom of the press. Not all Latin American governments agree with the United Stales on this point. Several have joined Middle East and Aslalic countries in trying to get the U,N. to adopt an amendment which would require newspapers to print statements by governments "correcting" supposedly erroneous news. These amendments, in tho opinion of the Slalc Department, would be nn infringement of the press and could be expanded to mean government interference. Therefore, when the chief executive of the United Stales announced lhat he has the power when ho sees fit to take over or control the press, It put him in direct contradiction to his own official representatives abrond. Remarked one Latin American editor who had been listening to American delegates argue for International press freedom: ''Maybe the U.S. press had better start worrying about laws to protect itself on the national level rather than on the International level." ' ' * * * The Massachusetts primary today will be a tougher test of the A m e r i c a n voters' intelligence than even that in Nebraska. In Nebraska it was necessary for write- in voter to spell the iul! name oZ "Dwight Eisenhower." If tliey misspelled either name, or used "Ike" Instead of "Dwluht," their vote was ruled out. The name "Robert Taft" also had to be spelled correctly, but this was a lot easier. In Massachusetts today, however, voters hnvc to know in advance and memorize the delegates pledged to Elsenhower. Taft's delegates are lagged with the label "pledged to Senator Taft," but Elsenhower's aren't. In fact, his name appears nowhere on the ballot. This is because Massachusetts Is a "writlcn consent" state and a candidate's name appears or! the ballot only with his wrltlen consent But what really makes the ballot confusing is that Tuft managers have entered a second set of delegates in several districts in order to befuddle the voters and make their memory test more difficult. * * * Mosl of Ihe Truman cabinet were caught completely off base when their chief made his dramatic Jackson-Jefferson, dinner announcement that he would not run again. .But Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek in far-off Formosa had been informed in advance. On March 25, the generalissimo and Madame Chiang entertained Under-Secretary of the Interior Richard Searles at dinner. The generalissimo did not talk much since he rices not speak English. But at one point, ;hc leaned toward Searles and, speaking through an interpreter, asked: "And how is President Truman's health?" "Fine," replied Searles. "He seems in excellent health and spirits." "And what are his plans for re-election?" "I am convinced ho will not run," replied the undersecretary of the interior. "Furthermore, J think he'll announce this on March 29." Chiang nodded, smiled, made no comment. Privately, Chiang is reported to be for Taft, since Taft backed the use of American troops to support Chiang in Ihe Far East, a step much further than nny Truman commitment. Being a most astute diplomat, however, Chiang said nothing. Four days later, March 29, Searles was on a naval vessel and received over the ship's radio a summary of the president's speech at the Jnck- son-Jefferscn dinner. It said nothing about not Suspended Animation. married men are taking a interest in the fate By HAL BOYLE New York-(/P)-Many American domestic liberty en tht part of '.-eat the American male.

"Giving us a bad name in the neighborhood, eh?" growled Mr. Tompkins. "I'll teach the little monster to swear." On the way upstairs he tripped over a table log and smashed a three-hundred-dollar vase into smithereens. Some seconds later, Mrs Tompkins called up to him, "George, don't you think that will .be enough for one lesson?" * * * George Carroll, of the managers of the Lake Placid Club, differed with sports expert Bob Cookc on the dnte when the sport of skiing was first introduced in America. "Let's settle this by looking it up in the Encyclopedia Britannica," proposed Carroll. Cookc acquiesced. Winner of argument: George Carroll. Author of article on skiing in the Encyclopedia Britannica: George Carroll. * * * Max Gordon, the colorful theatrical impresario, was reading a script one day at a seashore resort when he suddenly ran into difficulty. He lurnsd to reporter Bert McCord, who sat next to him, and demanded, "Hey, Bert, what does JI-E-P-O-T-I-S-M mean?" "Nepotism," pronounced Bert, "is what you're guilty of when you make one of your dumb relatives a company manager." "Holy smoke," exclaimed Gordon. "They got a word for that?" *· * * Jack Pearl, back on the air after a long hiatus, brought with him the venerable tale of the Dutch tulip fancier who belched heartily after dinner and was nsked by a horrified English vis- itor, "I say, do you always belch before your children?" The Dutchman replied, "Certainly not. Bomedimes I go first, somedimes der children go first." -* * · Questions And Answers Q--How many telephone calls are made daily in the United States?

Q_What was the inscription on a gift to George Washington by Frederick the Great? · A--"From the oldest general in Europe to the greatest general in the world." Britain's Parliament. The lav/ would give British wives a legal right to a J.r share of their husband's income. You undersand, old bean, things are done differently in America and Britain. Here the average wife can get everything in her husband's pocket by force of arms, language or tears. But over there tht Englishman holds to the old-fashioned idea he is still the king of the cottage. What's his is his. And what is his wife's? Well, whatever he decides to give her. Naturally, the Englishman wants to do the sporting thing by her-fair play and all that, y'know. But what with the pub prices being what they are, anu say a man's had a bad fortninht at the dart board--"well, old girl, chin up, you'll just have to skimp along with the shillings that arc left." The master of the house gets the lord's share of the pay cheque and the wife has to eke out her tea and crumpets as best she can on her marital dole. Often British husbands won't even tell the old girl how .much they really earn, figuring it really sn't any of her business. Dr. Edith Summerskill says this ~J "stupid, because there is no more certain way of alienating a voman's'affection." She is author of the proposed new law that /ould enable British wi.-es to go nto court and force their hus- rands to divvy up their lake-home lay. British men might be amazed o learn that probably most Amor- can husbands heartily hope Parlament passes the law. They vould probably regard it as masculine traitorism on the part of heir Yankee cousins. ' But actually it is a step in sclf- irotection, a bold who discussed the proposal. "The way 1 see i'," said one moustached mouse, "is this: if Parliament. gives British women a break, maybe we can get Congress to pass a law forcing our wives over here to let us have a fair share of our paychecks."

George left Marilyn at her apart- icnl so Uiat she could change othes. "Ill pick you up in half n hour," he said, "so be ready." IPHEN he left the building, he stopped in a corner drugstore nd purchased an .inexpensive amera and flash attachment. "Vom there, he headed back to the eneca Springs Hotel. "Where have you been all day? 1 ' r erna Denton asked. "Breaking Cupid's arrows." he aid. "Listen, have you got rubbing alcohol in your overnight jag?" "Hubbing alcohol? What's the matter--you need a rubdown?" "My back is killing me. I had ittle tussle with Chief Big Bear u'msclf." "Any broken bones?" she asked "Not yet," he said, "but the night is young and, baby, you've been wanting to cut loose, so here's your chance. I got a big assignment for you. There's a dance somewhere in town tonight. Fim out where it Is and meet me there at about 9 o'clock. And look you )Cst." "Arc you expecting royalty?" "No, but Chief Big Bear . gonna be there and if you cai occupy his Interest sufficiently, can get Marilyn alone, and mayb talk her out of this marriage stuff. "How come I always get «uc delightful jobs?" she asked. "An anyway, how am 1 supposed t occupy hla interests?" "Just act natural," he ink 'and leave the rest up to me. An send Old Man Sutworth a wlr« Tell him things are looking belle but don't make It too rosy." "Anythln* else, Master?" "Yeah," he said. "Cross yet finders, If thli plan of mine doesn work. I'm liable to wind up wear Inn a wooden overcoat." When Marlljn Sutworth opened 'What 1 don't see Is how English men manage to keep the size of their salaries secret," ir.arvcled another husband. "My wife makes me bring home my paycheck iu m mouth. Sometimes I don't even know myself what I'm- making." "I know what you mean," replied a third. "1 have to deliver my check unopened, too. The last time I hit my boss up for a raise, he said: 'Why, I've .given you two in the last six months.' First I'd heard about it.' When I asked my wife, she told me: 'I didn't want it to go to your head, Junior.' " "You guys ought to learn to put your foot down," bragged a fourth husband. "I tell my wife every morning she either has to give me a dollar or 1 won't go to work. She forks oul, too." The others shook their heads at this bravery and agreed nothing so foolhardy would work with Iheir wives. Finally a white-hair- old veteran of 40 years of marital warfare said: "Boys, let's quit kidding ourselves. No matter what Parliament does for wives in Britain, Congress wouldn't dare do a thing for husbands here. They'd be too afraid of their own wives.

Judging from the atli- ude taken by most people toward .his question, one would think it lothing short of criminal. I was a widow when my only daughter married several years ago and went quite a distance away lo live. My life was very busy at the time, as I took my aged parents into my home and cared for them until they died. Now I maintain my home and derive some income from it, but it is both a physical and financial struggle for me. On the other hand, my daughter, who is very happily married, is quits tied down with four children. She has no outside help except for an occasional baby-sitter. We could be a help lo one another. If I sold my home and went to live with them (and they assure me there is always a room waiting for me) the financial sacrifices would all be on my side, and perhaps I shouldn't be doing that at the age of CO. I would be dependent upon them entirely. I do feel, however, that life is too short to be away from those we love, but I would never want to bring discord into their home. A. S. M. Answer: There is a very great eal to be said in favor of a other living wilh a daughter, and bout .the only thing against it is mple, human cussedness. F e w eople are willing to make the ad- ustments necessary to a workable olulion of the problem. From the facts you present, and granting that your daughter and son-in-law are as intelligent and thoughtful as ' you, the combined family should be an outstanding success. Your daughter could certainly use the assistance of an understanding mother, and you are too wise to inflict unsought advice, or to try lo monopolize her lime or attention. Be Willins To Compromise The reason most three-sided households are not successful is thai one, at least, of its members is too demanding, loo unwilling lo compromise. Mother considers that she still wields authority over daughter, or that the young people should never go out without her, or entertain company by themselves. Daughter, all too frequently, thinks she can have an unhampered social life because giandma is around to take care of the youngsters. Son-in-law resents nvnry move JVIom makes and refers to her, even before the children, as a battle-ax. No household can endure in harmony with so many conflicts. But what a small job of readjusting will do 1 . Mother takes her place as the third member of the family with no resentment. After all, she had her day of authority and it is only right that the reins of government should now be placed in younger hands. The young couple defers to her as a matter of good manners, and a result of good upbringing. The grandchildren'are taught to do the same.
