Not The Way Formation of a Ku h'ltix Klan-sponsor- «d "American Confederate Army" has been tnnounced. Along with the announcement by Bill Hendrix, who is * former frand dragon of the Southern Knights of the Ku K l u x KUin, mmes word that, "If in October the United Slates Supreme Court outlaws segregation, all members will uko this as a violation of our constftutlonal rights." If necesnary, the organization will bear »rms, it was said. A plance at the record of the former ·Brand dragon reveals, according to the An- nociatcd Press, t h a i he was convicted in United States District Court in Tallaha*- n«e, Fla., last February for marling scur- riloui poBtcnrdB. He paid fines totaling $700 and was given a one-year prison sentence) which was suspended on condition that he mail no more postcard* of this nature.

We hope the country as a whole won't Uke too seriously such A movement, which, of course, could mean plenty of trouble if certain conditions should come into existence'. One look at t h e kmd of support the former Klan official gets from the public at large, should convince almost · tnybody that his popularity and influence il not of t h e greatest, and that, he represent! i very small portion of the population of his own country.

THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·r DHEW PCAIKON (Erf. Note--Prior to thi Democratic convention, which promises to he one of the hottest in ytars, Drew Pearson it w r i t i n g a series of columns diagnosing the qualifications of the candidates. ) Washington--The most surprising of all lho candidates in the Democratic 'Manic is Willii.;n Avtrcll Harrirrun. former polo player, millionaire itockholder of the Union Pirific Railroad, ex-ambassador lo Enclanrl and Russia, and mu- t u a l security administrator. When H a r r i m a n firr.t started rampaiqnir.;: nobody took him seriously, A few of his friends uere kind enough to observe t h a t he michl make n pretty Rood vice president. But t h a t was n i l . In f a c t , the only man who rejlly took his can- 'Hdicy seriously was Averell himself. And he lias t a k e n It so seriously and worked at It so ham thai he has ended up as one nf the top con- ten.iers for the Democratic nomination. Ex-Congressman .John Carroll of Denver dropped into the White Hourc the other c l a v in tr!l !hr president how Harriman had come out in Colorado w i l h all the cards stacked against him but done such a terrific job thai he- defeated niich stalwart Democratic dclcsalcs as Sen. Kd Johnson and Secretary of the Interior Oscar Chapman. * * * t Probably the most surprised of all at the emergence of Averell Harrlmnn as a crusading liberal would be his. father, one of the toughest highbinders ever to milk the stock of a public utility. It was Edward Harriman who built the Union racilli-, then engaged in the famous battle with Jim Hill to control the Northern Pacific, a battle which did not end until it caused a craih in Wall Streel. Ed Horriman's motto was the public be damned. His son's motto is the public comes first. And almost everything he has done has been Ihe exact opposite of his father -- even to the point t h a t friends accuse him of Irving to atone for the economic sins of the past generation. More likely perhaps Is that Averell is following In the footsteps of his grandfather, a devout Episcopalian minister. He is a,, example of what happens in few countries of the world outside Ihe United Slates and England--a young man of wealth who conscientiously tries to devote his life to public service. Some of Averell's old friends have been unkind enough to say t h a t if he hadn't been born with a silver spoon in his mouth ho wouldn't have been able to feed himself. They have ah-o made wisecracks .bout his lack of business ability and the lucky break for the Ilarrlman fortune when Averell chose to go into government rather than business.

It is then the human parade looks most human. And you can tell something about each inmate by the way he starts the )on«; | vnyags home. The average worker I will recognize at least some of I the following standard office types: i ( U ) The Clock Watcher--This reluctant beaver has developed a size 18 neck from raising his head o study the clock. When it hits V30 he is off like a springing deer. He couldn't get out of the place faster if someone hollered "fire!" (2) The Two Hoary Philosophers: One gets up and says, "An '' other day, another dollar'." And the other climbs to his feet and says, "Yeah, a million days-a million dollars." Trtey have been saying this every day for 37 years and neither has lour bits in the bank. (3) The Worried Suburbanite- He hauls out a timetable and starts muttering: "If I stop off and have one for the road 1 c a n ' catch the 6:03 train. If I have- two, I can snag the 6:21. If I have three, lemme see now I can. . ." (5) The Beat-the-Gun Arlis:.,, At 5:20 he gets up as if to g 0 to the water cooler. Then he s w i f t l y sidles out the door, and runs dov-'n the fire exit so no one will s*m him catching the elevator. (8) Ths Day Dreamer--He si's there with glazed eyes until some one kindly shakes him and says" "Wake up, Homer, the ordeal i^ over." (7) The Femme Fatal*. Stenographer--She has a heavy date »n-l since 2:30 she's been in"the ladirs' room primping and putting on her cocktail party dress. When she emerges, a cloud of scent trails her, and for the next three days the filing- cabinets smell like a catalog of French perfume. (4) The Fiddle-Faddler-He has been tryinjt to look busy all \ day without doing anything. F i - j nally he quickly shoves a mass' of papers in a drawer ,and announces loudly: "Boy, what a workout this has! been! Finally got my desk clean, though." But the only guy he's got fooled is the janitor. (S) The Office Wolf--He gees the stenographer, arises like a mesmerized puppy, »nd follows her in the elevator. (9) The Boss--He comes out of his sanctum at 5:38, looks tip at the clock in smug virtue, then shakes his head tiredly 'with an air of executive sacrifice. ' · (10) The Ambitious Vassal--He closes his d*sk drawer with a loud ban?, then races out in tin-.e lo say breathlessly: "Gee Boss' you're working late--again." Whs! he means by this, of course, is: "Look at m e, Boss, worked late, too. You can count on good old loyal me everytime, Boss." Well, there they are--the office . pilgrims. Just jetting out of the ' office each night taes more real acting ability and energy than John Barrymore ever put i n t o . "Hamlet." No wonder the tired ' businessman arrives home so worn out.

I recall t a l k i n g to him after Boosevelt and Churchill met on a battleship in the North Atlantic in the early days of the war. Harriman was with them, and upon his return I dropped In to «ee if I could pick up some human interest Btorles. I knew Averell well enough to realize that I could get no diplomatic secrets from him -- not even an Inkling. He was too much of a scared rabbit. So I asked him a few simple, non-secret questions, about pleasantries and pastimes aboard ship. Avercll, however, was hesitant. Finally I asked whether the prime minister and the president wore evening dress when they dined on the battleship at night. "I am afraid," said Harriman, "that would be confidential and I must not discuss it." As I walked out of his hotel, I glanced at the afternoon papers. They featured a picture of Roosevelt and Churchill aboard ship in evening About in years has passed since then, but in that 10 years, the one-time timid Mr. Harriman nas become H rip-roaring, ·.ostrum-nounding can- fo t h i n t h' pr "' rt . cnt - And '' m alm °" °'innin f to think he might make a pretty good one. -^ - ^ _____ Bennett Cerf Department of higher criticism: f l ) An Ohio Judge, sentencing a prisoner, pointed out The rouble with you is you weren't able to different i a e between temptation and opportunity."
