MeSnrlcy, Jr., nf Washing' in, nn assistant director »f the Labor i *ague for Political Education, is quoted .' s saying in Little Rock thnt. nn education Inn which may lie adopted in Arkansas nd hacked by Ford Foundation money, 1 'ould be unwise. "Arkansas can do w i t h - ·ut it," the Associated Press quotes him t naying. "What the Ford plan does hould he handled by the community." We question Mr. McSorley's knowledge f what the program is, and doubt he has nough informal fan concerning the prn- «isal to SH.V w i t h any degree of accuracy rhether Arkansas can best do without ft. ir not. So far HS is known publicly, the ed- icators of Arkansas have up to date not (Sme up with any definite plan which may « considered cither advantageous or In- urioiis to e i l h e r education as a whole or f Arkansas. In fact, it. has been indicated i meeting today in L i t t l e Rock m»y de:!de whether a definite plan will be Adopted and supported, or whether a new start )n working out * proposal will be made. Press reports have McSorley hitting at i proposed federal housing cutback, 1h« Ford Foundation, and Sen. J. W. Fulbright of Arkansas (who he says Is doing A "drs- swvice" to Arkansas). We wonder who is more npt to be wanting to do something FOR Arkansas, McSnrley or the educators and the junior senator--who has more r«ason to he interested in advancements for this state? The Washington man gives the Impression of just plain being "an aginner". D*mage To The Streets J'lyet lev-file taxpayers are h u r l i n g because some folks are running over city streets before the work on thorn is completed. That was the word given to the City Council by Mayor Powell Rhea Monday nfffht. The mayor asked City Attorney A. D. McAllister, Jr., to draw up an ordinance for Council consideration, making it unlawful for motorists to run over blockaded streets. A good deal of blacktop paving has i been done hi Fayctteville this spring. i When the work is almost completed, and ,' while the streets are blocked off to pre' vent traffic from cutting into the worked ; streets, some drivers have found it to i their liking either to lake down the ob- jj structions or run around them, and travel I over'the freshly oiled and graveled sur; faces. They have caused damage in the : amount of several hundreds of dollars- it has cost the taxpayers that much to re: pair the damage done. ! Sidewalks also have been damaged by pedestrians who have walked on freshly laid cement, before it has hardened. "It's enough to make nn honest t a x payer, as well as the city officials, hope some kind of law can be passed p e r m i t t i n g arrests to he made and fines collected to help defray the unnecessary expenses. The f r i g h t e n i n g t h i n ? about some dlmwit.ted politicians is t h a t people vole for them. THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round B T DREW PEAftlOK Washington--President Truman was both jovial and psternalistlc when he received a California delegation led by Attorney General Pat Hrown who came on the forlorn nope of changing his mind on tide-lands nil. "You heard my speech," the president remarked, h a l f humorously. "Hnw can you expect me to change my m i n d a f t e r t h a t ? " Rrown reminded him t h a i C J n l i f n r n i a n s had ciinic lo i n l k In him in KI4B al which t i m e he had refused to t a k e a siand because tidelands oil was then before Ihc .Supreme Court. "Yes. aiul the Supreme Court has now decided in f a v o r nf the 40 states," Mr. Truman interrupted. However, he agreed In study a memii t h a t the California lawyers promised In prepare for him. t h o u g h , as an Indication t h a t It probably wouldn't change his mind, he told the following story: "II riMiunds me of nn old judge in Missouri," he said. "He told the court: 'Rring the man in. We'll give him a f a i r trial Jind then h;ing h i m . ' " The president also enjoyed t a l k i n g to Hrown. who is r u n n i n g against Sen. Estes Kefauver in C i i l i f u n i i a . about the various presidential can- diilalcy. Regarding K e n . Richard Russell of Georgia, he said: "If he were right on civil rights, he might bo the ablest of all." Averell H a r r i m a n he. described as "a wonderful m a n -- b u t Imagine a Wall Street banker being elccled president!" * * * Sen. Jliib Taft, a u t h o r of the Tuft housing act of which he is riulte proud, would not be f l a t - tered If he read a Idler w r i t t e n by the Los Angeles renl estate lobby c a l l i n g his act "socialistic." Of course "siirialisllc" Is an es.-y epllhel lo hurl these days, and Senator Taft has used It himself »t limes. However, this column has just unearthed nn unusual letter written by the Los Angeles lobby in Its effort In defeat a s l u m clearance-housing program In Los Angeles, to be built under Taft's housing law. The leller put« the bite on the Los Angeles Clearing House Association, Ren Mover, chairman, to the tune of $15,000 as part of an Jlftt.- 000 slush f u n d the real estate lobby Is raising to defeat the I,os Angeles housing. Real estate and housing groups all over the nation are w a t c h i n g the Los Angeles battle, where Ihe city government had already signed a contract w i t h the federal government to proceed with the housing program, when suddenly two city councllmen mysteriously changed their minds. A f t e r that the California Supreme Court ruled thsl Ihe city must continue w i t h its housing contract, regardless of the two councilmen Bui Ihe real estate lobby Is continuing the battle Just the siune. In case Senator Taft Is Interested In what the Los Angeles realtors think of his "socialism " here Is their letter signed by "George M. Eason, Finance Chairman, Committee Against Socialistic Housing": "Mr. Ben Meyer "Chairman, Loj Angeles Clearing House Association Los Anielei, California "Dear Mr. Meyer: "You ar* f a m i l i a r with the fight now going on at the City H a l l retarding public housing This matter will be on the ballot'In the election of June J. "The various organizations Interested In financing and building of homes in Los Angeles have formed the committee against socialist hnuslni. We anticipate t h a t it will take a fund of $I«(I,000. to put on the campaign. Many organizations hive already pledged the amount thst they will raise through their membership. "In the campaign on proposition 10. the Clearing House Association subscribed .17,500. The cost of (hat campaign was $94,000. We therefore are asking Ihe Clearing House Association to subscribe »15.f)0n towards Ihls campaign. "The public housers have started their campaign and are now holding meetings in various parts of Los Angeles. We anticipate t h a t they will have u n l i m i t e d funds at their dlspnsal. "We will appreciate any assistance t h a t vou can give us In this mnlter." * * * Michigan Republicans are now stuck In their own election loophole, originally devised to trip up the Demncrats. Several years ngo they split the ballot In order to keep the state ticket from being submerged by FDR's quadrennial' landslides. The voters were thus given a chance to vote for FDR on one ballot and for local GOP candidates nn the other. Hut with the prospects of an Eisenhower landslide this November, the tables are reversed In other states, an Elsenhower victory would probably sweep the GOP candidates for senator and governor Into office along with him But in Michigan, the spilt ballot will give the voters a chance to consider the state candidates separale- W h a t worries the Michigan Republicans Is the tremendous popularity of Democratic Sen. Rlair Moody, who hss marie an amazing record during his one year In the Senate. The private polls show Moody and Democratic Gov. "Soapv" Williams ahead with Michigan volers.
