You may ..· 'have missed the story, for example, that · told of the first, anniversary of the beginning of the truce talks in Korea. It was July 10, 1051, that an Army hel- -_---icopter bounced to a slop on a dusty field "~Tn Kaesong. The UN truce team got out j/4nd began the deliberations that have been, in turn, hopeful, annoying, maddcn- ····toig and, nowadays, downright frustrating. Statistically, there has been q u i t e a record amassed during the talks at Kae- and Pinmun.iom; The reports that been taken form a stack that stands wven feet high. All in a!!, UN and Communist negotia- fbrs have conversed for a total of almost *K0 hours. Which is a lot of sound and i-_.fur.T to signify nothing, or almost nothing. This situation fs difficult to fathom. lere are many who believe the Reds are :llberately flailing, to permit, a buildup their forces. But. how long docs it take accomplish t h a t ? Their feared spring offensive never iterialized. Their feared summer offen- ·e has not. as yet, shown itself. They've . A ample time to strengthen themselves ""for a major assault. So, p*rhstps, the Reds' motives in hold_._ _ up a decent truce are deeper than jiut ^ atalling tactics for military reasons. There is much to the theory t h a t their motives, n%id«*d, go far beyond another offensive. What have the Reds got to gain from another hijr push ?

Mojt senators and congressmen had no idea what they were voting on. As a result, several sleepers clipped through, an follows: Tax gravy--Senator George of Georgia introduced a complicated amendment to the excess-profits tax supposed to adjust the rates for fabricators of strategic metals. Significantly, however, the amendment wa» tallormade to reduce the taxci of one grass company of Bridgeport, Conn., whose owner happens to be Herman Steinkraus. outgoing president of the U. S. Chimbtr of Commerce. George has long been close to Ellsworth Alvord, tax adviser.of the Chamber of Commerce. Claims uravy--Congressman Beall of Maryland tried to allp through a bill authorizing the Willmore Engineering Company of Baltimore to collect a $244,000 claim. It so happens t h a t the claim had already been turned down by the Court of Claims and the U. S. Distiict Court. In fact, the claim was so fantastic that the courts ordered the FBI to investigate the Willmore company for alleged fraud. Yet Congressman Btill tried to get Congress to pay the claim that the FBI Is now investigating as fraudulent. Fortunately he failed. · » · Airline gravy--The big airlines almost booby trapped the small alrllnrs with a bill that would have put them out of busing:?;. II would have allowed the Civil Aeronautics Briard to slap $1.000 fines on the small, unscheduled lines for minor infractions of rules. For five years, the CAB has f a i t h f u l l y followed big airlines' pressure in trying to squeeze small lines out of business. But the courts have consistently stuck up for the little airlines. The new bill would have circumvented the courts, and allowed the CAB to fine thr little lines. The bill was drafted by Ed Sweeney, well known as the big airlines' friend on the Senate Aviation SubiommiUee s t a f f . In order t o ' f o o l the senators. Sweeney prepared a report declaring that the comptroller-general and attorney general were Jn favor of the bill. This was not true. In the end, Senator Sparkman exposed the sleeper and blocked it on the Senate floor. Tax plums--Senator M a r t i n of Pennsylvania pushed through a tax amendment made to order for two companies--the Budd Company of Philadelphia and the Sangawo Electric Com- piny of Springfield, 111. All these bills were introduced the last minute without a hearing--in the hope that they would be overlooked and enacted into law in the smoke and confusion of Congress' last days. Pay-toilets lobby--One bill which didn't quite sneak through was the amendment to benefit the Pennsylvania Railroad and increase its pay- toilets charge from five to to rents despite an OPS price celling. The man who pulled wires to p«£s thli amendment was none other than PrtlMent Truman's farmer counsel. Clark Clifford, and tht senator who went to bat for the pay toll«t» w«s Allan Frcar of Delaware. Though the railroad pushed through its pay-toilet hike. It «l«o wanted exemption from the $285.000 trlplt dimige *uit brought against It by OPS for vi8l»lin| pric* Mllingi on pay toilets. This suit w«» tlso introduced by Fre;ir. However, though Congress agr*td to dime toilets it refused to knock out Hit law suit. Unlike the Pennsylvania the New York Central had increased pay toilet; to 10 cents in the Grand Cenlral Station prior to the OPS ruling, but reduced the rate aftet the ruling was made. * · * In contrast to the way private bills benefiting a few people were sneaked through Congress, here is the play-by-play story of a tough, two-year-battle to secure a combat bonus for G.I.'s in Korea. Almost two years «grX September, I MO, this columnist pointed to the unfairness of a service pay system which gave extra risk bonuses to pilots and submarine crews but none In the boys in the foxholes. Sen. Tom Connaly of Texas took up the cudgels by inserting the column in the Congressional Record, following which Sen. Dirk Russell of Georgia introduced a bill n i v i n g a S50- a-month combat bonus. Rursel! drrl bis best tr* push the bill, but was f i n a l l y defonlcd in his own Armed Services Committee. At this point, three young senators took up the cudgels for the G. I.'s--Moody of Michigan. Long of Louisiana, and Monroney of Oklahoma, all Democrats. Since under Senile rules it is impossible for the chairman of * committee to anpcal a bill to the full Senate if it has been defeated in his committee. Long, w i t h Russell's blessing, made such an appeal. He brought the combat" bonus bill out on the Senate floor, where it was defeated. Some of the same .--enators who maneuvered backstage to slip private bills through Congress during the recent session voted against the G I 'a in Korea. * * * However. Senator Moody, undixcouraged, adopted · new tack. In order to get a new vote he reduced the bonus from SSO to S45 a month, then demanded a roll rail. This meant that every senator would have to stand up a^d hr .-.-Minted for or against the G. I.'s. Naturally, none wanted a roll-call vote, rn the combat bonus was pa«ed at $4S monthly. However, in the House of Representatives the hill was killed. Republican oconnniizers t u r n e d thumbs down. However. Senator Moody filed One Down and One to Go They'll Do It Every Time By Jimmy Hatlo GRAHDWA'S HEyUAV COULD BAKE BREAD, COFFEE CAKt RES AND COOKIES IN e!O-TlME ON HER OLD WOOD-BURNING notice that when the military appropriations bill came up he would move to suspend the rules in order to attach a "foxhole rider" to the bill. This is a difficult thing to do, because the "foxhole rider." or combat bonus, meant completely new legislation and would require a two-thirds vot* of approval if a single senator objected. To make sure he got a two-thirds vote, Moody, with the support of Sen. Styles Bridges. Republican of New Hgmpshirc, ana his friends Long and Monroney, telephoned more than half the members of the Senate and got their approval. Thus, the foxhole rider still had to pass the House, where Congressmen George Mahon of Texas and Dan riood of Pennsylvania, members of the Joint Committee on Military Appropriations, went to bat. At first they failed. In the privacy of the committee, the vote went against them. However, the friends of the G. I. did not stop. They enlisted the help of Majority Leader John McCormar.k of Mass., Alfred Sieminski of New Jersey, s Korea veteran, Louis Rabaut and Thadcleus Machrowic?. of Detroit, all Democrats; Mrs. Edith Nourse Rogers of Massachusetts. Republican. They threatened to carry th« fight to the floor of thp House, where every congressman would have to stand up and vote for or against the G. I.'s. This thrc-jt. plus the astute leadership of Moody and the final support of Senator O'Mahoney of Wyoming, finally put the combat bonus hill through. It is now a matter of law, and the extra checks to G. I.'s in the foxholes should be in the mail fairly soon. Bennett Cerf Hoagy Carmichael is responsible for the story of the crack shot of an Indiana community who was never overmodest in retailing legends of his prowess. On one h u n t i n g trip, the marksman took careful aim and fired, hut the bird sailed on undisturbed into the blue. The marksman watch- ed it in dazed silence for a moment, then dashed his gun to the ground, and critd out, "Fly on, you blankety-blank fool bird! Fly on with your gol-durned heart shot out!" * * * "A pessimist," explained Grov«r Whalen at a recent dinner for traffic regulttors, "is a female who's afraid she won't be abl« to squeeie her car into a very small pirking spice. An optimist ii a male who thinks she won't try." * * » An Ozark native, aged eighty or thereabouts, ambled into a doctor's office in Cnne, Missouri, and announced, "Doc, I seem to hive picked up a first-class caee of insomnia somewhere. I keep wakin' up every few days." * * * Our State department had occasion to send an emissary to Ankira recently on · delicate mission concerned with rearmament. His first message from thtre, htstlly decoded, read, "Please rush me t dozen Turkish towels." * * * In the feuding country of the Blue Ridge mountains, the Abernathyt ind the Spillanes «bot at each other on sight for three generations. Townsfolk thought they might end the feud by appointing the heids of the two families joint mayors. The ancient enemies shook h»nds, then rushed forth to try to outdo eich other in sartorial splendor at the inauguration ceremony. Old Tod Abcrnathy decided to wear the cutaway and striped trousers in which deceased males of his clsn were Uid out before burial. Thus adorned, he entered the kitchen to collect his women folk.
