There a group of employes are. spending part time at work and part time off, not, showing up for their jobs when the order comes without warning to the company, reporting back to their jobs later on, also without, notice.

It isn't to the bsst interests of the company's service to its subscribers--to whom the workers certainly owe something, since, it, is the mih- Kcribers who provide the money which pays the employes for t h e i r services.

THE WASHINGTON M.erry-Go-Round BT DREW PEARION Washiniton--Th« W h i l e Home has been f o l lowing with |r«it interest--tn put it m i M l v -General Elsenhower's maiden efforts in the po- hiicil arena. The president, who conferred p l H a c a n l l y '.u'h Elitnho'A'tr j u i t two days before thp Ahilcne ipeech, was not exactly prepared for Ihe s m a c k in-th*-jaw a t t a c k which his a d m i n i s t r a t i o n got from tht man ht had once urged to run on t h e Democratic t i c k e t . However, he gave no visible M|n of being peeved In f a c t , on the morning a f t e r Ike'?: A b i l e n e blast, the president go! off n wisecrack indi- c a t i n g t h a t "Mister" Ei^nhower h;id rpiite a hit to learn yet ahotit politics. Talking to Eric Johnston, head of t h e Point Four profram for helping b a c k w a r d arcsp, Truman said lh«t a f t e r he l e f t t h e W h i t e House he wanted to associate himself actively w i t h John*- ton'it work. He praised the way Johnston was Retting A m e r i c a n experts to help increase a c r i - c u l t u r e and improve production in Arr-t and A f r i c a , then added: "You know General Eisenhnwer t h i n k s we can solve these problem? w i t h b i r t h control. I told him. 'you make that speech in Boston, general, and Ihe Democratic p a r t y w i l l carry Masjftchusett* by 200.00(1 votes.' " * * * In Ihe Pentagon, some of General Eisenhower's nld comrades-at-arm. watched his Abilene .ipeech and press conference w i t h the keenest interest. They were interested not only because they favor Ike personalty, hut also because they are a bit worried over t h e idea of a m i l i t a r y man lettlni mixed up in politics. After the Abilene events were over and Ike had put himself on record for General MacArthur and criticized the loss of China, one friend rtcilled an Incident in World War II when Gen. a«e.r«e Mirthill. then'chief of staff, summoned Eisenhower. Marshall personally had planned the North African c«mp«isn, but withnut tell- ln| Eisenhower what he had in mind, h* called him In and showed him a map on which was ch«rt«d the North African strategy. "Whit de you t h i n k of it,"? Marshall asked. "It look* O.K. to me," rtplied the younger man. "You'd better t h i n k no," shot back Marshall. "You'rt noinf to b* in command." That was the hig£esl break in Eisenhower's life. It put him on the road to heinj; a national hero and the presidency. Yet, at Abilene. Ike's old comrades pointed nut, Ike blanted U.S. China policy, knowinf full well that General Marjhall, as'ambassador to China, had first set t h a t policy: then later, as atirdiry nf stale, he carried it o u t ; and finally, as »ecret«ry of defense, he vigorously opposed tht MacArthur policy of arming Chinese Nationalists, building up Formosa, and going all- out for Chiang Kai-Shek. Old military friends of Ike's and Marshall's also rtr«ll»d that. th« bitterest feeing exists between MacArthur and Ike's nld benefactor Marshall: and t h a t Marshall supported President Truman In firing MacArthur. Yet at Abilene. Eisenhower, his mind on politics, indicated t h a t he would reippoint M«cArthur--If elected president. * * * Military men. of course, don't understand politics. If so, his oid friends in the Pentagon might have, been more charitable. But not being politicians, and being fond of their old chief, General Marshall, they also recalled t h a t the most vicious a t t a c k ever nvido on General Marshall was a 60,000-word d i a t r i b e on the floor of the Senate by McCarthy of Wisconsin. Under the cloak of privilege. McCarthy called Marshall every name In the book, even accusing him of cowardice. Later, McCarthy collected enough money to have the speech privately p r i n t e d in book form, and it's now being circulated throughout Wisconsin. Yet, when Eisenhower was asked about Ihe senator who 10 bitterly casticnlcd his nld friend, Ike refused to "engage in personalities " + * + Those who sat In on the strategy meetings of World War II know all too well what it was that chiefly lost us China. In large part it was the n a t u r a l tug-of-war between d i f f e r e n t t h e a t e r commanders for guns, men. and materiel when there weren't enough gum, men, or materiel. Eisenhower in the European theatre was burning up the wires to Washington for more men. more guns, more gasoline. Churchill was supporting h i m . Simultaneously. M a c A r t h u r In Ihe Pacific was burning up the wires for more ship., C uns men: while in the China-Burma-India theatre' Chiang Kai-Shek was pleading for more guns] men. Munitions, with General Stilwell supporting him. It Was the American f a i l u r e lo support Chiang adequately during this nenori wnich really began "the lo-s of China." The head of a nation cannot he in v i r t u a l ex.lf too long w i t h o u t losing face and without making it extremely difficult to stage a comeback A c t u a l l y it was Ike's good friend Winston Churchill who more than almost anyone set back our China policy. Churchill burked like a steer whenever General Marshall urged more support for Chiang and more supplies for the Burma Road Churchill wanted to concentrate on Elen- howers campaign in Europe. Anrf it was Crforge Marshall more than anv- one else except Gen Al Wedemevcr who urged more support for China.

XXV11I '"THE street was a thoroufihfarc, crossing the city diagonally from northwest to southeast. Like other streets in the neighborhood it was garish, dingy, littered. Basi! Willing Rot out of his car and .stood looking up at ttie sheer ·bleak walls. He turned to look at the houses 'on bis side of the street--small, squat, squalid houses, some brick some brnwnstono, many with .shabby little shops on the ground ,floor. A tailor's, a plumber's, ·cobbler's, a pawnshop--strufifjli ·nciRhborhood b u s i n e s s e s that ,'would last a frw months and then .Rive way to other? as fugitive. Al Ihe corner, a sign identified the . thoroughfare as "Warwick Si reel." ; Basil walked toward the middle of ihf block until he came to number 104. The cobbler's shop was on one side jmd an electrical rrpnir shop on Ihe other. The door ot the b u i l d i n g ilsolf W;IP a faded brown, cracked nnd scwling. Hasil looked up at the four floors above, Dusty M, some broken. No curtains or shades. No liRht. The door was ajar. He stepped Into the vestibule. There was a row of letterboxes. Through dim glaxn, he s»w nurnei scrawled on scraps of pa- prt in slots below the boxes. He lit a match and hrld the flame up to the name under box 4-C. In that slot thcrr was no name nt nil. A hinge creaked a* Husil entered ih« cobbler's shop next door with ItAthcr and garlic. A feeble electric light danglet from a wire over the cobbler' bench. An old man looked up frorr the shoe he was resoling with dull, incurious eyes, "Shine? "No, thanks. I want to ask you about the house next door." Bnsi sat down on a greasy chair provided for customers with only one pair of shoes who waited in stork- in" feet while thotc shoes were heeled and soled. "Don't know nothing." The cobbler dropped his eyelids. His hammer began to tap again. · · · CILENTLY Easil laid a $5 bill ^ on the counter. The cobbler looked nt it without any change of expression, but the tapping of his rammer censed. "Is the house empty?" "Yes." "Why?" "Hoard of Health. They say it's rotting away. Going to fall down, everybody has to move out. r people. No other place to £0. Most of them hnd to move in with cousins or friends. Why couldn't hose busyboriics have left them alone? A few nails here and there ind the house would bo all right. J oor people don't expect a palace," "How long has the house been 'Scant?" "Six months ago they all moved out." "Who owns the building?" "Jimmy Bush. He njns the nwnshop down fit the corner. Why don't you ask him?" "I'd rather nsk you." Basil took photogruph from his inner nckrt nrd laid it on the counter esidc the $!S bill. The- cobbler saw a still face ith staring eyes and dropped jaw -- a crude, flnshliKht picture, nn- Xiarxl, unlouchcd. "You're a cop?" "No." "That Riiy'd dead." "This Happens to he a prillce 'holograph, but !'m not n poltc«- man. Wruu are you n f r m d of?" "Trouble. 1 don't like a croofc, tut 1 don't like a cop, either, i look the other way when either one is around." ^All I want is informition.** Basil laid another $5 bill on the counter, but now he kept his hand on both bills. The cobbler looked at the monny. "Go to court? Testify?" "Perhaps." "No." He shook his head. "Afterwards some of the guy's pals would rough me up." "This man was not a gangster." "All crooks run in gangs." The sour wisdom of city streets was in his eyes, "This man was not a crook. If the police question you, it will be worse." "They're in on this already?" "Yes. But if you talk to me I'll see they let you alone." a · · A FINGER veined with dirt-encrusted lines touched Duggan's picture. "That little guy. H* laved next door for a while or so after he building was empty. But I inven't seen him around since the )cginning of April." Basil lifted his hand from the wo 55 bills. They vanished in- itantly. Outside, in the street, he pushed pcn the scabrous brown door again and paused to listen. No murid. He crossed the vestibule ind stood at the foot of a stair. The wooden treads were worn hol- ow at the center, splintered at he edge, and there was a musty, un.iired smell in the place. Shad- ws clustered thickly above and iclow the faint light filtered hrough s grimy window pane on he first landing, Neglect, darkness, filth he was prepared for, tit somehow the silence was un- lervinfi. He began to mount the stairs. The balustrade was shaky under sil Wfllinft's hand, frltty to his ouch.
