Change of Heart From Europe corns reports, disquieting: if true, thit Prince ia sliding away : from her earlier enthusiasm for » European army and now favors i more nationalistic ticup with England. The cause for such an action would not be hard to sec. France looks with increasing concern upon the continued re- fiurgcnce of her ancient enemy, Germany, as a European power. France realizes nt the same time that the rise of Western Germany, at least, is due in some part to (he United States, which has striven hard to get the Bonn Republic to take a strong place in the European army. So, leeking some balance against the growinf power of Germany, France reportedly is tending toward ties with England, which has stood firm in its position not to join a European army. This shift in attitude on the part of the French, if such it can be called at this RUpe, comes at a- strange thne. It. might be thought that, following General Eisenhower's nomination for the presidency, the prestige of that favorite American ofajthc French would make itself felt in Mntiment favoring Western European union, one of his favorite programs. Certainly, if Eisenhower should be elected in November, Western Europe could except to have an American chief of state'as sympathetic to their problems as President Truman hns been. And certainly France knows that the way to a man's heart is not by slighting his pet. project*. . Wade Jones *-Golden Chance They've discovered gold again at one of the most inconvenient planes in the whole Western Hemisphere. Why can't gold ever get itself discovered some place where man doesn't have to practically kill himself getting at it ? Klondike, Yukon. Leadville. And now the latest placo in this part of th« world is on the Jgri River in one of the wildest sectfons of wild Brazil. But thousands of adventuners are streaming into the area. To get to the gold country they have to fieht their way for three weeks UD a river that, has 22 waterfalls and rapids. One of the smartest operators in the Brazil gold rush is a citizen named Alcu- lumbre. He stays back in a relatively comfortable town and stakes the glory boys who nre doing the real hunting. When they come back out he collects his ner- centiipe from then- strikes. So far, he's supposed to have 80 per cent profits on investments t o t a l i n g about $50,000.' Alculumbre sec-ma to have the system nil right. At least u n t i l they get around to discovering gold right beside that new hotel at Third and Pine streets where a man can pet a cool bath and a good night's sleep after a hard day of prospecting.

In*ld« fact It that Stevenson stayed In thi background, (or two basic reasons: He winMd in absolutely free hand, did not want to be tht hamlplckcd stooge of the big city bMMt. He did not and does not want to be Trumin't m»n. Hit private opinion If thai Truman is a po- lltlcil albatross around any Democrat'! neck. That was why the Illinois governor grimly fought off the entreaties of Illinoii Political Bon .fake Arvey, that he announce his candidacy. Such a move, he knew, would have made Arvcy the big wheel of any Stevcnton-lor-prraitlent drive. He also gently rebuffed all pressure from the While Houie. deliberately scorned an early White House blessing. During a series of conferencei with a White House adviser two months ago, Stevenson laid down five basic conditions under which he would consider running. They were aimed to j discourage Truman, as follows: 1--That he, Stevenson, have the right to name his own campaign manager. S--That he have the right to name his own chairman of the Democratic National Committee. 3--That the Democratic platform be cleared with him before presentation to the convention. 4--That President Truman agree to campaign only whenever and werever Stevenson wanted him to. 5--That President Truman agree to clear all speeches during the campaign with Stevenson In advance of delivery. Stevenson also asked that he have the power to pass on his own vice presidential running mate. He also wanted the White House emissary to be very careful not to consult with Jake Arvey on any of the above. * * * When President Truman heard Stevenson's conditions, he hit the celling. Stevenson's attitude, he exploded, was a personal affront, particularly when it cime to clearing presidential speeches with a candidate. "I'm president," Truman said, "and I owe that, fact to no one, including Adlai Stevenson. I'm not going to clear my speeches with a living soul. "What's more, I'll ipeak where I darned well want to spoak and when I want to speak. I fought the '48 campaign out alone and I can fight thli one out alone too If I have to." As a result of Truman'n reaction, Stevenson climbed back Into his shell, refused to commit, himself further on the nomination. As a result, also, Truman put Stevenson in the tame doghouse that he had already erected to hold another leading Democratic candidate -- Sen. Estes Kefauver. Stevenson's stirring speech to the opening nf the Democratic convention brought his candidacy to life with a bang. * * * The most pathetic meeting of the entire Democratic convention occurred not in a smoke- tilled room but In room 709 of the Blackstone Hotel during a breakfast between Vice President Alben Barkley and eight labor leaders. The meeting was called by friendly mutual agreement and was attended by Walter Heuther, head of the United Auto Workers, George Harrison, head of the AFL Hallway Clerks, Cy Anderson of Railway Labor's Political League and Jack Kroll, head of the CIO Political Action Committee. Borkley came without an aide or assistant. He said he wanted to talk to the labor leaden alone. At tnt -slut-of the breakfast, the vice president made a long and empassioned plea for' labor support. He told of his long record of fighting liberal ctuies. how he had always championed labor. He reviewed his own voting record on civil rlghtc and social legislation. The labor leaders listened, but before he finished they knew they would have to tell him they could not support him. They couldn't break the old man's heart by telling him the truth -- that, at 74. he was too old, that he couldn't be elected. They tried to let him down gently. Krol! pointed out t h a t Btrkley was getting Into the race at a very late date and much of labor's support was already pledged to Harriman or Kefauver. Furthermore, he said that lobor could not take some of the personalities who had climbed aboard the Barkley bandwagon. He specifically mentioned Jim Farley, though the labor leaders also had in mind reports that General Motors was secretly pushing Barkley with the idea that he would be one Democrat who would insure an easy Elsenhower victory. The labor men knew that Barkley's record was good, and they admired it. But they also knew that no man of 74 could win, and they were determined that a Democrat be nominated with a chance to win. Later, Reuther put it to Barkley as gently as possible. "Mr. Vice President," he said, "we have nothing against you. We admire you and are for you personally. But the trouble Is that you're being used." As the meeting broke up, they could see that the old man's eyes began to fill with tears. After years of battling for the party, years of working for New Deal legislation in Congress, after hundreds of speeches he made at Jackson Day dinners throughout the country. Albcn Barkley had hoped that hit great ambi'tlon to be Well, That's It, Chum! Grown Men, Too! * president of the United States mishit bt fulfilled. But now it appeared dashed,to pieces just on the brink of victory. Governor Stevenson's son, Borden Stevenson, hes been secretly working to draft his father. Borden is at the "draft Stevenson" headquarters run by a group of University of Chicago professors at (lie Conrad Hilton Hotel -- Washington Lawyer Georce Ball flow to Chicago just before the convention opened with a round-robin plea to the Illinois governor from a number of Stevenson's former colleagues in the New Deal. . . The University of Chicago volunteer "draU Stevenson" team spent less than $7,000 stirring up their drive. Each volunteer rented and paid for his own room at headquarters. . . The volunteer group had strict orders to stay away from the Arvcy political machine. . . One of the heaviest pressures on Stevenson to run came from Chi- CSRO Publisher Marshall Field, Jr.. who backed Elsenhower for the Republican nomination, and Is now cooling off on Ike. Field rents Stevenson's farm at Libcrtyville, III., as a summer home, fre- fiuently has his landlord n a weekend guest. . . Stevenson's sons at first were cold to his candidacy, later flipped over to favoring a presidential bid by their father. . . Anti-Stevenson p r o p a g a n d i s t s sperad the story around Chicago hotel lobbies thtt S t e v e n s o n was afraid to run oecause he feared the story would come out that he had once murdered a man. The story Isn't true. What happened was t h n t Stevenson, at the age of 18, accidentally set off a gun killing a 15-year-old cousin at a party given, by his sister during a Christinas holiday. The Coroners Jury returned a verdict of accidental homicide. . .

I have a cigarette lighter and my wife, Pegeen -- and they both work:' * * * When Juan and Evita Peron were building a luxurious retreat for themselves some miles outside of Buenos Aires they established a rigid guard around the project to prevent the stealth of valuable materials..Every day at noon, the story goes, the same workrfian began to appear at the exit gate with a wheelbarrow loaded with straw. The guard, convinced that there was dirty work afoot, searched the straw more carefully daily -- even had it analyzed to see if it possessed special chemical values -- but could fir.d nothing to substantiate his suspicion, and had to let the workman pass. A year later, the guard met the workman, evidently enjoying great prosperity. "Now that all is said and done," pleaded the guard, '-just what were you stealing every day on that Peron project?" The workman whispered, "Wheelbarrows." * * * One of the country's greatest experts on the atom bomb went off for a well-earned vacation last month.
