' ; bypass when it/became evidont h route i dther;.;than the old ,0ns'up Hospital rlill · was essential .if federal nnd state highway funds were to be utilised .in ;highway building. The objects of the bypass construction, as we understood them, were to f get traffic off .(tic steep grade up School r Street in front of the City Hospital, and to help relievo traffic congestion on tho : Square. The objectives will be reached when the new bypass is open to traffic. But we feel they should be reached with ns ninny safety precautions ns possible. Certain streets have been closed along the 1 bypass, but others are open and there will be some : crpss traffic as well as pedestrians going from one side to the other. The four-lane roadway along the side of the hill will invite speed. A (ruffle, signal light or two will tend to curb this go- Ing faster than the law allows, nnd make · for more safety all the way around, We hope the Highway Department can see its way-clear to make a close study of the situation, with the safely idea in mind.

THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go^Round * BT DREW PEARSON ; Washington--One of the personal paradoxes of the. steel dispute which only three or four people know, is that President Truman and CIO Chief Phil Murray for. many years were not on too good personal terms, ' Thn public hits the impression that they were intimate friends and that it was partly because of this intimacy that the White HoUfn'went to bst for the slpehvorkers. However, though the CIO has thrown powerful political support to' Truman, Truman's and .Murray's personal relations for a long time were cool. : The coolness dales back to the 11)44 Democratic convention in Chicago .when Murrqy was a strong supporter of Henry -Wallace for the vice presidency. As such he opposed Truman, and was not in sympathy with the way-Son. Sam Jackson of Indiana abruptly Raveled the convention to a close in order to stop a bandwagon rush for Wallace. That night Murray received a call from some of the big Democratic bosses, including Ed Flynn of the Bronx and the lale Ed Kelly of Chicago. Tney reported that they had been trying to stnp Sen. Harry S. Truman in his determination tn be vice president, but weren't successful. They asked Mtirmy it he would talk to Truman. . Murray, who had a room in the Blackstone Hotel where Senator Truman also lived, picked up the phone, asked Jf he could como down and see him. '"I'll come up and soe you," replied Truman. And he did. Almost hurtling Into the room- a minute or two later, the senator from Missouri didn't wait for Murray to .open the conversation. "I know what you want," he syid, "and I'm not going to do it." - - · ; .He went on to say that he knew the CIO chieftain wanted him tn withdraw, that he wasn't going to do so, and left. . That ended that. During the years that followed, Murray was, not Invited to the White House personally as he was by FDR. He went there only with other Inbm leaders. And it was not until about a" year. ago. that he Av*s .called in for a personal, confidential talk' with the president. * * * Sen. Guy Gillette of Iowa, jitlnry chairman of the Senate elections suhcommiltee, has made out a subpoena 'fof several other newspapermen to be grilled on news le«k.i, but apparently hasn't the nerve to *0fve them. . Especially he Tiasn't the nerve to serve live- wire Clark Molienhoff of the DCS Molncs Bec- Istnr-Tribune, who wrote cxnclly the same story on Gillette's committee as did Eddie Milne of Iho. Providence Journal. In fact, the editor's note appearing at the top of the Providence Journal and the Register-Tribune stated that the stnrles were the same. However, Gillette has threalened Milne with jail unless he reveals bis source, yet he hasn't served a subpoena on Molienhoff, though one is all signed and ready, Heason: Rhode Island Is » long way from the voters of Iowa, while Molienhoff writes for the biggest circulating paper in Iowa. Incidentally, Molienhoff Isn't ducking the subpoena. He's around the cnpltol every day, ready to accept service. Gillette just doesn't have the guts. · * * * Meanwhile, the entire incident .of heckling --newsmen regarding:their news sources indicates tM extent to which Gillette has been under the thumb of Senator McCarthy, the man he Is «iip- pof'ed to probe. What Milne and Molienhoff wrtjte.-about the Gillette Corrtmlttec.was that its own staff had recommended hearings on five of he chnrges Senator Benton preferred against Mc- Cni-yiy. McCarthy, who didn't like this publicity, and who is close to Gillette, in credited with pcr- Kund!n£ him to crack down on the press. This crackdown came as a complete surprise to Senator Hayden of Arizona, chairman of the Rules Committee, »nd he cautioned Gillette, about It. Other members of Gillette's committee were sore. They are also peeved over the fact that, after the Senate voted unanimously 60-0 on April 10 to continue with the McCarthy investigation, n monh has now passed and Gillette hnfi done nothing. HI* only movc;has been to cater to McCarthy'*: clone friend, Senator Wclkcr of Idaho, by ·postponing further McCarthy invesliijaliops until May 12 when Welkor returns from the,west. * * * Few people, even in Kentucky, know how much It pay* to have Alben Bafklcy pulling wires, fof the blue-grass state. The other day Truman himself telephoned Secretary for Air Flnletter and half apologetically explained t h a t the veep was concerned about the transfer of an Air Force training center from Bonne Counlv, Kentucky, tn. Clinton County. Ohio. The .transfer had already been partlally.madc, but ntnv Is ' b r i n g made back to Kentucky. Meanwhile the Senate Armed Services Commltleo is investigating why the Air Force spent tho extra money to shift an nir base (rom Kentucky tn Ohio and back agsln.

The bachelor said, "To tell you the truth, I'd be more interested in meeting the besutlful eighteen- year-old daughter. Do you think she'd go for me?" "Pfui to the daughter," snorted the broker. "If you married hpr, you'd have a terrible old shrew for a mother-in-law!" * * * There's an antique shop in an up-state New York 'village, according to John Stralcy, whose proprietor is a whimsical octogenarian who ha* his own way of doing things.

George had a small adhesive patch over the abrasions on his jaw, but otherwise he was unmarred and he had a fat bonus in" his pocket. While Mr. Sutworth had not exactly given his blessing to hit daughter's latest romance, he had seemed kindly disposed toward Fabcr when last George had seen them together. "What made you do it, Vcrna?" George asked his secretary, who sat beside him on the train. 'Do what?" 'Sock Fabcr with a tire Iron, of course. I wasn't in danger. That punch knocked me out and Fabcr probably didn't intend to do me any more harm." "1 said I didn't like to have him punch you."

So I had to do something. 1 socked Faber so that she'd have a choice as to which man- to weep over. I figured it was a better than a 50-50 chance against you because Fabcr's better looking." "What did you want to do that for?" "You really didn't want to marry her, did you?" "For awhile it seemed like a good idea. You've got to admit the girl's attractive and I'm--well, I'm just a young fellow, quite human." Verna shook her head. "For heaven's sake! Doesn't * man ever look beyond the girl's outside?

Matte* #-.- BI JOSEPH AMD 8TCWAIT ALWl* Historians are quite likley to hold that this year's most significant military advance, surpassing even the scheduled explosion ol the first hydrogen bomb, was the obscure testing of an obscurely named guided missile. T.he missile, called "Nike" for the Greek Goddess of Victory, is » fully guided, supersonic rocket developed by the Army. In an impressive number of tests, it had achieyed 100 per cent destruction of drone-operated B-17s flying at maximum speed at 35,OfiO feet. Because of this triumphant showing, "Nike" has already been ordered into quantity production. When available in quantity, "Nik" will give .our great cities and, critical Industrial installations tteir first effective "point defense," which is technician's language for close-in air defense But even this long forward step ij only a fragment, so to speals, of the truly revolutionary. meaning of the "Nike" tests. In brief, the guided missile art consists in solving an inter-related group of hideously difficult problems, involved in building, propelling, stabilizing and guiding any missile in flight. Each "family of birds," as the initiates call the types of guided missiles, of course presents its own family problems. In missiles of great range, for instance, it is necessary to overcome gyroscopic precession--the tendency of gyroscopes to get out of whack because of prolonged friction between their parts. "If the gyro* precess,' the birds lose stability and can't fly," is the way the practitioners of the art put it. For all the families of birds, however, the really basic problems-are similar or closely com- narable. The "Nike" success therefore suggests that birds of other families either have flown or will shortly fly. It can in fact be stated, on highest authority, that this Is the case. And from the stand- formidable outer gnuntleta. Such are the fantastic requirements of a trui air detent* newt- days. Nothing lew five rea- point of America's air defense, this general progress of oilr guided missile development is inexpressibly more important than the single success of "Nike." TJiis is true, in turn, because a fully effective air defense now, requires an elaborate weapons-system, including at least two guided missiles besides "Nike." as well as any other essential parts. Early warning radar must instantly reveal the enemy's first approach. Radar-directed fighters must intercept Ihe enemy while he is still in the outer approaches. For accuracy of destruction, the fighter interceptors must fire air- to-air guided missiles-able to seek the enemy in flight. An inescapable contlnent-v.'ide warning net must await the eneniy who evades the fighters' onslaught. Missiles of considerable size and range must be guided by the warning net, to strike down the enemy flying towards his target. And finally, the point defenses, which "Nike" will afford, must destroy any enemy plane that, succeeds in running Ihe sonabie security against tir ettack with atomic weapons, when ell may be lost if half . the. enemy planes get through.. And no such defense was even remotely practical, until the doors of e new era began to open this.yetr. The air-to-air guided missile, needed to assure maximum kills by fighter-interceptor, aircraft, is not. quite so well forward · is "Nike." Neither is the larger, long, cr range missile needed to transform the continental erei into one huge hornet's nest. Yet, Air Force and Navy efforts to build these missiles give the greatest promise. According to responsible in- fork-mis, prototypes of ell the different birds needed for lir defense should be satisfactorily tested before the year's end. Furthermore, the 'other missing parts of a modern air defense system have been, are being, or can be provided. The all-weather tighter-interceptor now in use, the F-96, is unsatisfactory, but there are great hopes for the newer F- The continental radar warning net is on its way to completion. And for the really early warning which the continental net cannot give, there is the combination of radar picket ships and, still more important, air-borne early warning. Convair aircraft, equipped with warning devices, designed to fly continuous patrols at the extreme limit of the cuter approaches, .are included in the Air Force budget which Congress is currently hacking to death. Tn theory, then, the Job of air defense against atomic attack can now be done, although it will take a long time to do it. To this, however, three stern warnings must be added. First, no single wonder-weapon will do the air d efense job. "Nike," for instance, with Its short range, cannot knock down bombers firing ground - to - air guide* missiles against their targets, which Is the offensive technique of the future. And it is also questionable whether "Nike" can hit these smaller, · far speedier ground-to-air missiles as well as it has hit the lumbering B-17s. Everything depends/therefore, on having the whole weapons-system. ·Second, there Is the widest gap between probable performance in a combat emergency and performance in carefully prepared lest flights like those which "Nike" has shown up so well in. . Even with the complete weapons- system, there will be no complete security--hardly enough security, in fact, to let us sieep at night, and cc.tahily no' enough to justify abandoning* the balanced defense effort because of our new air defenses. Third and finally, creating these new air defenses will impose very qrcat additional burdens. Dear Miss Dix: When our marital advisors continually urge giris to look arnund, encourage them to meet many young men, and vice versa, I am a little disgusted. For what can be more confusing than to get on the date merry-Ko- round? Certainly adolescence is a period of change, but is this eternal Jumping very* good training for a right marriage? Rather, isn't it for the divorce court--the eternal triangle played up In every play and movie? The advice to make every date think you are interested in him alone seems to me to place everyone in an insincere light. True, one should be polite and friendly, but no more. If parents, schools and churches would see to it that more opportunity was given for group entertainment and there was less emphasis on dating, it seems to me our young people would have a better chance to make mariage successful. There should be more stress on character development, and less on being an interesting "date." A. F. Answer: Young people begin to show interest in the opposite sex at about the age of 14.
