Under the newly-adopted plan, on order* from City Manaper Ross Taylor, each department head, including the city librarian, who has been orderinj up to $16,000 worth of honk* a year without bids, has been ankrU to figure out just exactly how much of each item his unit, will need for the wminjr year.

THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·t DUW PCAMOM Washington--Those who know the Inside on aeveral SUte Department error? recently ire beginning to wonder how our f u m b l i n g diplomats hivi been «blt to keep the U.S.A. out if wtr is well ai they hjve Boner after boner his been pulled by Stite Department men, which with the common sense o! t riilrotd yirdmajter. could have been prevented. Here ire the three latest: 1. The Lattlmore snafu eould h»ve been softened even it the last moment when Michael Mr- Dernw.t. State Department prees officer, u-ai tsked if it wain't true that the department press frequently acted nn rumors In banning citizens from foreign travel. Grandiloquently replied McDermott 1 "The State Department do« not take action on fantasies or Inanities." Yet. in the Lattimor* case that was exactly what the State Dtpartment did. J. For months the State Department has had In Its hands imaiinf details o[ how the China lobby kas be«n trying to buy. bribe, and subvert American foreign policy. Yet it's done nothing. Now Senator McCarran. worst SUte Department tntmy. has moved in with a .secret probe to browbeat State Department witnesses. 1. Failure to notify the British in the Yalu dam bombings is one of the most nonsensical bontrs in years. It was jurh a cock-eyed comedy of errors that it's unbelievable. Here is a play-by-play account of what happened. * * * for weeks Churchill's government had been getting some rough criticism from the Laborites over lack of cooperation in Korea. So Lord Alexander, British minister of defense, went to Tokyo to iron things out. Lord Alexander sot along beautifully with Gen. Mark Clark, told everyone that we weri doing a fine job. and that Anglo-American cooperation couldn't be better. He was planning to make a glowing report to this effect on his return to London. But. while In Washington en route home, he had the rug pulled out from under him. The Defense Dtpartment telephoned acting Secretary of State David Bruce to say that General Clark had advised lhat he was about to bomb the hydro-electric dims. "1 mume the British ire being notified," was Bruce's comment. "I assume so." wa» the Pentagon's reply. But neither nne rtia anything sbout the assumption. They went serenely about the humdrum routine of Washington without even bothering to pick up the phone and notify Ixird Alenandcr who was a lew blocks away in Washington praising American cooperation. Dean Ach«ton. at that particular time, was on a plane bound for London. It was not his fault. His undersecretary of state. Bruce, who has been responsible for more than one bad boner in the past, was in charge * « * As to legal necessity of notifying the British, thert ire mixed opinions. Fortlgn Secretary MorrUon had stopped in Washington en route to Ottawa list September at which time two ·freeuifnU were made retarding Korea. One WH a list of moves we would make in case the truce negotiation! b.roke dswn, such as blockading th China coist. Most of these moves are allll iftret The, other was a litt of targets we would bomb if the truce talks broke off. This list Included the hydro-electric dams. Strictly apeaking, It was not necessary tn notify thf British--if the truce talks broke o f f . But th»r« Is a difference of opinion as to whether Ihf true* talks are broken off or merclv ·»!!?! 9wn. Furthermore. Foreign Secretary Morrison understood London was to be notified, even though this understanding was never reduced to writing. The illicit solution nhviouslv was to pirk up the ohone and call I/ird Alexander--especially sine* he personally thought the dims should have betn bombed. Rea«-m for General Clark's rlesiie to bomb the dims was important. About three weeks ago he got worried that the Reds were ready to launch a new offensive. Me feared they were using the truce talks as a blind for a sneak at- t^j*. On en* occasion the Communists threw 15.000 troops into a savage battle to regain T- Bon« Hill ind it was obvious t h a t thf Chinese commind was trying to find a weak spot in U.K. lines. It was at this point that Clark and General Vin Fleet decided to knock out the power dims. These dams have provided the power for !h« Communist radar network that directs enemy fighttn and artillery. They also feed electricity to most of the war industry of Manchuria. Clark asked permission of the Joint Chiefs of St«(f In Washington to bomb the dams, and got an ok. But the State Department, whose job it is to handle all communications w i t h the British Embassy, blithely "assumed the British had been notified. When Acheson. arriving In Ixindon, learned of the boner, he telephoned his undersecretary. Mr. Bruce, and save him a hijhly undiplomatic bawling out. Then he arranced to talk with 200 British members of Parliament, at which he did a bang-up job of explaining the tragedv of errors. He even poked a l i t t l e fun at the Truman administration by saying: "I am sure mat you are wholly inexperienced in England with government errors. We, unfortunately, have had more f a m i l i n n t y with them."

How Time Flies Thirty Years Ago Today (Fayetteville Daily Democrat, July 2. 1922) Fayetteville will take a holiday the Fourth if. observance of the anniversary of the nation's independence.

Death in the Sierras AS I reached my tent, with Sue close on r.iy heels. Dr. Davit Roberts came along the trail toward me. "What have you been up to?" 1 started to tell him but he stopped me. "We have Marched everywhere for you. Now, my : dear, please stay near me hereafter because I know a lot more ·about all this than you may think. £on't Rosemary, don't take another chance." "I have sometking to tell you," II answered as I tried to hide my confusion. "It's about Mrs. Ordell. ;I've found her alive in a cave under the stream. I saw the murderer and I do believe that these scissors were used to stab her." As fast as my tongue could fly 1 told him the story of my adventure, of the evil man who had sunk from sight in the water, of the grave-like cave and of the living body of Mrs. Ordell whom Dr. I Roberts himself had pronounced .dead. While I talked. David took · my topcoat from a peg and slipped it around my shoulders. He caught my hands and held them in his . two warm brown ones. It was then : that I was honestly sorry that I had tracked the murderer without j telling him or Duncan. i "Never mind about Duncan, hut I1 should have thought that you'd , have told me. for protection -- If nothing more." I felt my color rise again but continued my story as well as I could. I told him that Mrs. Ordell asked me tn tell Bob Instead el her huaband. ' "Yes, that's understandable," Uwi ·Doctor replied. "She would protect the Professor with all her : strength, even tn the last. She would keep him from that cave U It were humanly possible." Finally. 1 told him about the man and with my Anger drew tn .Invisible copy of It on my rart- .cew. , He Mood lUrtoif at Me Md UMn without comment as to my stori he said. "Now that Susi.- found those scissors, we bave the all- damaging evidence o.' fingerprints More than that, dear girl, you may have solved the whole case you and good old Susis. And before I leave I've just got to tell you something though the moment is far from auspicious. To me, time is something that is purely personal. A day may be as long as a year and some*years seem no more important than some days. It seems impossible to believe that you and I met for the first time only night before last. These past 36 hours have seemed to me to be the length of months. I've never met a woman like you, Rosemary. You are brave, capable, gifted with conscience, smart and self-confident, though you keep all this carefully hidden beneath i-our pretliness. I'm In love with k'ou", my dear, and even though vou may not care for me, I'll always love you just as instinctively as I love these beautiful moun- :ams." · · t OffE told Duncan of my adven- lure. He listened, apparently amazed and made constant jot- ings in his little book while wt alked. Together, the men agreed o tell no one of the new developments.

David turned an embarrassed rtd while the Sergeant grinned at him in delight "Here, drink this, girlie, ana you'll begin to feel warmer. Now get into your riding duds and we'll take a ride, that is, if you're ible to stick on a horse." "Oh, 1 am," I answered. "And don't you dare to leave me.'
