President Truman said the commission's action was the most hnporUnt In its history. To appreciate jusi how importtnt It was, one needs only to reflect * bit on the «normou* potential of TV as tn edu««jton- il medium. Stations devoted entirely to the dissemination of culture and education can brhig into the living rooms ind clati rooms of the nation the finest of our teachers, ·rtlsts, philosophers, physicians and leaders in »11 fields. Subject whose dullness has put untold millions of school children to sleep through : jthe ages, can become vividly alive through JVs clever witchery. ;· The 30 million grownups now taking ; ·ome kind of adult education are a ready «nd waiting audience for educational television. The need for programs produced specifically for these groups Is all too appar- «nt to « Utovition vtower surfeited wfth tn m«ny inanitta and worse which now : ifrowd; the program* on commercial TV : Stations. ; In /«et, many parents consider com- pjercid station proframmlng to bad for ehlMrw Wat they, have refuted to have · television tit m th* hous*. , Those parents are almo*t sure-fire fcuyers of get* If they know solid, high-' .level educational programs will be avail- I «ble for the kiddies. | To date applications have been made for only eight educational statrona. The prospective locations are Miami, Flu.; Manhattan,' Kan.; San. Francisco, Cmlif., and Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, »nd New York City, in New York state. ·. The New. York state government has Mid it intends to file applications with the FCC hi the immediate future for five additional .atations to complete a statewide, educational TV network. But elstwhcra) in the country progress Is much too slow.Frled* Hennock. FCC .commissioner, blames "lack of information, inertia, vague educational fears about entering field, the resistance of vested interests, pressures of those selfish interests who would profit by education's failure." But one new and happy note is heard. As an incentive to educational institutions to build stations the Emerson Rarlfo vH Phonograph Corporation has set up a fund of $100,000. It will be divided in $10,000 Emits to the first 10 educational licensees to bejrin regular operations on th* reserved channels. That, is indeed a far-sighted and public-spirited action. It would be heartening to fee. the rest of the television industry contribute, to the Emerson plan. Failure to b.uild a significant number of educational-TV stations would, in the words of Miss Hennock, "represent a t r a - gic wastage of our national strength and well behig." Wade Jones THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·r DHrw FEAfttoii Chicago--The favorite occupation of this convention It cjuoting Prtcldtnt Truman ai to who h« Is lor. There are half a dozen cabinet m«inb«ri hare, plus a »core of senators, plus rertain highly placed Democratic bosses, plus two White House observers. Some of them a'-tti- ally have access to the White House by telephone. Moit of them don't. But from many you can nl a whispered version of who the president wants or whom he doesn't want. The situation is almost identical w i t h the Chlcaio convention of 11144 when F r a n k l i n Roosevelt was en routn by t r a i n to the West Coast, and when Bob Manncftan. Erl Flynn nf the Bronx, Mayor Kelly of Chicago and olhcr party bosses undertook In tell the delegate; n h o they should nominal* as vire president. That was the memorable occasion when llannegan, then national chairman, produced a IMl?r 11M- Inj first Sen. Harry Truman then Justice William O. Douglas »s FDR's preference for V. P. It wa( not u n t i l some years l«lur that Grace Tully. FDJVs personal secretary, told how that littler had been retyped at Hannesan's direr-lion in order to put Truman's name ahead of Douglas's. + * * Today the man who benefited by that switch of names is in (he Whits House, with the power to influence., perhaps select, his successor. Here Is a summary of how he seems lo be reactlne: In regular staff meetings, the. president has played his political cards close to his chest, Never has he disclosed his hand re.gnrdlns a possible successor. To a few extremely close advisers, however, he f i n a l l y indicated t h a t he wr.uld favor Avernll Harrlman, because nf Harriman's inn per cent support of the New-Fair Deal program. This was about two.weeks before the convention. Wh«n this word leaked out, however, Democratic Chairman Frank McKlnney urged the president to reverse Wmiclf ami take Vice President Alben Barkely instead. McKlnney is reported to have warned that the party would be ipllt wid« open If anyone as eontroversial on the race question were nominated, and that Gen. Dwight D. Elsenhower could easily carry the South. Several other Southern Democrats whom the president thrusts, made similar representations, and following this, Truman is reported to have given the word to McKinncy that he could pro- mole the vice president's candidacy. Meanwhile, Mr. Truman still looked with favor on Hirriman, also has no objection to Estes Kefauvtr, detpil* the faet that he has long been miffed at the Tennessee senator for the personal trouncing he gave th* president in New Hamp- ahlre. He Is definitely thumbs down on Senators Robert S. Kerr and Richard B. RuiMll, however, and he has b««n at Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois for being so aloof, though he still regards Sttvenson as an excellent man. That's about the way the preatdent'l virigat- *d views have be«n expretwd to intimates as the Democratic convention netn the voting Itage. * * * Sen. Diek Rusa*ll'« denial that John L. Lewis Influenced him In making hit statement for revision of th» Ttft..H|rtl«y act doesn't Quite tell 111 the itory. Wh»t happened was that the senator from Georgia hid dinner with Chicago Boss .take Arvey about 18 days before the convention at which Dick put In a hid for Illinois' big bloc of delegates. Arvey, a diplomat, tried to let Russell down easily by explaining that his anti-labor record would be poison to the big-city wing nl the party -- especially his support of the Taft-Hartley id. Later Russell related this to his public relations adviser, David Charney, who also represents John L. Lewis. Lewis then concocted R statement, and slipped It to the Georgia senator through Charney. It may well be that Dick Russell didn't realize that it had come from Lewis, though he did have a luncheon with Lewis. Note l--In addition to the rape of Virginia delegates. Atlanta Banker Freeman Strickland. treasurer of Russell's campaign, began burning up the wires to Chicago, told Dick that .Southern textile manufacturers were betr.nved. Georpia's Gov. Herman Tafmadgc also raised cain w i t h Russell, was one of those who forced him to backtrack. Note 2--Charney, one of the best public relations men in the business, was cross-examined by th« Kefauver committee, because of alleged links with Frankle Costello. Kefauver probers found that he had never been the paid reprc- senatlve of Costello, though he had written favorable stories about him and was the applicant for the Copacabana Club's liquor license, a night spot established by some of Costello's friends from Saratoga. Political observers consider it more than a coincidence that Charney should now be working for Senator Russell as p*rt of the stop-Kefauver campaign. Russell probably knew nothing about his background. Jot Lelghton, Harriman's press chief, has tipped of* Kefauver headquarters privately that ·Averall might be satisfied to be secretary of state, with Franklin D. Roosevelt. Jr., as vice president on a Kefauver ticket. . . Cong. William Dawson of Chicago, one of the only two Negroes in the House of Representatives, has received a steady stream of colored delegates trom all over the country. He has been telling them to vote for anyone except Kefauver.

An eight-year-old boy was parading in a political snake dance for Harriman. Asked why he ws.i in Javor of Harriman, he replied: "Youth Is for Harriman." . . . Mrs. India Edwards has the unique distinction of being the only candidate not seeking Ihe presidential nomination- she only wanls to bo vice president. . , While every candidate wants Truman's support, Oscar Ewing's headquarters is the only one openly displaying pictures of the president. * * * A deud-rinerr for Senator Kerr was walking around the Conrad Hilton lobby with a big Kcfauver button on his lapel. He turned out to be Francis Robinson of Ashland, Neb. He looked so much like Kerr that people stopped him. Once in Omaha he happened to go into Kerr's hotel and the desk gave him Kerr's keys. However, Robinson is inn per cent for Kefauver. Kofauver is renting the foyer in front of the main ballroom of the Hilton which Taft paid $1.000 a day for. The foyer costs Kefauver $100 a day. Senator Kerr has the most garnish headquarters, complete with a log cabin replica of his birthplace, free movies, which attract a motley group of non-voting youngster!:. Kerr also has a fancy juke box blaring out the tune "Oklahoma!" Harriman has inquired of newsmen about the Kerr bribery stories. He seemed greatly interested. A woman delegate was spotted walking through the Hilton lobby in a cream-colored dress embroidered with Her name -Mrs. Dessie Sawyer of Cross Roads, N. M.

Miss Keala Leilanl explains the dance is a sacraficial one, used when an offering was made to the Hawaiian god, a volcano.

Twenty Years A»» Today (Fayetteville Daily Democrat, July 23, 193J) Near normal July weather was resumed today on a large scale but fatalities continued undiminished. Rains concluded their eastward journey last night, bathing most of the seaboard and lowering temperatures to the eighties. A sporty new Ford delivery truck was put In service today by the Country" Club Dairj. It has a maroon body and will be lettered in gold. A friendly warning to laborers over the sts'= and outside the state that there is abundance of labor at Fayetteville to do all the work required in building the Veterans Hospital, is being sent out by the local American Legion post, it was announced by the commander today. Ten Yean Ago Today (Northwest Arkansas Times, July 23, 1942) Although plans now are to open the USD rooms fot entertainment of visiting soldiers on August 1, a number of small articles still are needed. Such articles as Inkwells, new writing pens, wastepaper baskets, lamps and chairs, magazine racks, small tables and ash trays are needed to complete the furnishings. Members of the committee have been busy putting donated furnishings in shape for the opening. Slip covers have been made and some articles refinished. A public opening is planned when the rooms arc ready for uae. -AUMAVS TAKE A iweeu tVDOUR . r y c u i oorntDuNe- T A T lunch with some of the othe owneri at the club hous Johnny learned that the Stake would b* run.

Johnny watched it all bleak' ly, feeling no surprise, nor any disappointment greater than h* had [experienced before. The whole At- Iw.iter season hud been unfortunate ifor him.

And I've bt*n thinking of Lady Luck." Lady Luck was a five-year-old mar* who'd run in a couple of tt.OOO claimera that season, with little success. Johnny said, -You were thinking we could drop her down a couple of notches?" "And bet our ahirti. It's a hunch. Lady Luck doesnt really belong up there with those three grand goats, and I can do it, honest, Mr. Hamilton, I can do It" The jock paused, out of breath. "I believe you can, too," Johnny said. "But my ihln la about all I have left to bet." He sold a horse, the chestnut two-y*ar-old h«'d hoped would develop into a winner. H* get five houaand for her. He and Rusty *gan to took for a ipot Two days ater they entered Lady Luck In a *2,000 claiming race for three- year-olds and older. There waanX it developed, as much play on Lady Luck at the mutuels aa they thought there'd be. Saving feed money, Johnny spread moat of the money three ways; the wcbanici of the mutuels are such hat the three money riots are not alwaya proportionate. It was a quiet field; there was Ittle trouble at the barrier, · · · I N owner sitting next to Johnny aaid, "You're cute, dropping a lot one like Lady Luck In there.

Answer: It is very impolite lo efuse to sign any letter, whether o me or anyone else. As I re- rind my readers quite often, real tames are never used in letters lat appear in the column, but it s nice to know who sent them, "urthermore, sometimes a prob- em arises that cannot be answer- el here, and if I know the sender's name and address a personal reply may clear things up. So, please sign your name and address. Dear Dorothy Dix: I am a fairly intelligent young man of 28, in love with a young woman who teems to take a special dell?ht in provoking me. At first I decided this was a sign of love and was willing to endure it in the hope that things might turn out better. Unfortunately, they have gotten worse and she treats me like a discarded shoe. I know she is interested in me. but a relationship like this doesn't appeal to me. BILL S. Answer: Your young lady is trying to impress you with her superiority in the most childish, and usual, manner. By belittling you, she concludes that she is automatically elevating heiself in your eyes, as well as in her own. This condition definitely will not improve, hut will become much worse, with marriage. Need I say more? Dear Miss Dix: Although I am 16 years old, my father won't let me go out with boys as he says I will fall in love and want to get married. He thinks I am tod young. What can I dc to makt him see that I have no Intention · of falling In love and (retting married ? EVE Answer: Your father is only looking ahead to the natural con-sequences of dating. What he should realize is that, by depriving you of dating now, he will make you more acutely aware of ' boys, and much more likely to fall in love with the first boy you do go out with. You must do your best to convince him of your level- · headedness, and of the fact that you do Know how to behave. Dear Dorothy Dix: In our church we have a young pastor. His wife is a fine person. However, she calls all the women between 25 and 35) by their first names, as we all do. But sh* wishes to be called by her last name. I think the same form · should apply to all. Do you ? A. M. Answer: Since your pastor's wife feels her dignity deserves , the courtesy of last-name calling, you can only accede to her wiihei. Perhaps when she becomes better acquainted with the other ladiei. she will ask them to use her fint name. She may come from a part . the country where etiquette in regard to first-name usage was more formal than it It in your town.
