THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round »T MEW KJUUM Washington--Ward hai been pasted Inside the Chelf committee that the investigation of the Justice Department Is to b* quietly tapered off. Chief reason: Pressure from certain big dli- tllleri who have contributed to both parties tn the pail. Already three committee Investigators have been given notice and orders are out to slart writing the final report. Republican members are expected to object, but some of them may not be too vigorous, became the liquor companies have also been generous to the GOP. The Chelf committee was set up as a subcommittee of th« House Judiciary Committee for the special purpose of probing the Justice Department. Congressman Frank Chelf, Its chairman, appeared anxious to do a grind job. How. ever, Chelf, who comes from Kentucky where bourbon is sometimes said to be king, hai not called his committee together since Seagrams admitted paying $3fi.onn in cash to ex-Attorney General Howard M r O r a t h on behalf of the Democrats, and J20.nnn to Harold Talbot on behalf of the Republicans. Various heavy contributions were admitted by other liquor companies, together w i t h the claim t h a t an anti-trust suit against them was dropped. , Note--The Chelf committee will meet In August tn probe the law f i r m of Peylon Ford anrl Herbert Bergson, two former Justice Department officials, and then plans quietly to fold its tent. Actually the operations of the Ford- Bergson firm are not important compared to some of the other things left untouched. · w w During the war. Nelson Rockefeller, who did such a good job improving our good-neighbor relations with Latin America, once remarked to me: "When 1 first came to Washington I had the id«a that I could bring In private business executives and reform the government overnight. However. I've been here about a year, and the longer I'm here, the more respect I have for the average government sen-ant." "Dunning the government." Rockefeller added. "Is a lot harder than operating private buri- nesj. You can't fire a congressman who cuts your appropriation!. And you have lo do business with senators whether you like them or not. "In addition, I have found that the average government sen-ant is very conscientious--some of them remarkably efficient." That statement, coming from the son uf one nf the biggest businessmen in the nation, may cause surprise. However. Nelson's brother. John D. Rockefeller I I I , has followed it up this week with hard cash. He has put up a quarter of a million dollars through Princeton University \i give an award each year to the 10 or so most des«n-ing "bureaucrats." As a reward for their service to the government, they are to be Riven free education travel or study for about six months. * * * Dictator Peron's plan to have his wife embalmed to lie in state permanently- ij a shrewd move, to continue the hold he had, through his wife, on Argentine organized labor and the un- organlied Argentine poor. Reefing their support, yet al the same time winning.back Peron's greatest original source of strength, the military, is his real problem. P*r?r. came in power through the Army. But when his wil« took over the Labor Ministry and as her unique power over the underprivileged Increased, the military became restless and rebellious. It wa? because of F.vita"s "undue prominence" that military disaffection reached a climax last summer and some Army units revolted. While the ittempt tailed, distrust remained, and it took th« Secret Police at least five months to catch even the secondary figures in the revolution. The No. I revolutionary still remains unknou-n to Peron. Now that he ij alone. Peron liaj been making overtures to the Army. He wants to win back his eld military friends. But the problem is to do this without alienating labor. That is why Peron sent to Hamburg.

Look at This One for Awhile! Reports Of "Flying Saucers" In Skies Aroused Curiosity More Than 100 Years Ago; Writer Had Explanation For Them By RELMA.V MORIN New york-(P;-The flying saucer story, you know, is by no means a new one. About 30 years ago, a man n.-med Charles Fort rounded up and published a whole series of reports about mysterious objects in the sky. He said his sources, mainly, were newspapers, and he cited the names and dates of the 3apers, in case his readers were interested in checking the references. Some accounts were well over iOO years ago, before the age of airplanes and before very much 'as known about balloons. The reports of sishtings, accord- ng to Fort, came from many lifferent parts of the world--from North Carolina, from a ship en oute to Bermuda, and a whole pate from 'the north coast of Eng- ' and. In fact, that section of the ' British Isles wss, in its day, the lying saucer center, just as the we somehow get mislaid on their inter-stellar charts? All of this seems not to havt impressed Charles Fort very much, one way or another, while he was writing about it. Hi! own theories were such that he could take, in stride, the possibility of visitations i to the earth by creatures from another planet. Bizarre, Even Todar Fort was a rebel and a heretic who set himself against most of the accepted beliefs of science. Some of his Ideas sound the least bit bizarre, even in this electronic age. His theory of "teleporatation," as I dimly got it, permitted material objects--including plants and animals--to be de-materialized and then transported through spate, f e r t i l e and living things may have been brought to this earth from other worlds in that way, he said. And he speculated about the goal of people-to-people friendship. * * * The Italian Communist newspaper Unita has distorted some remarks of mine to make it appear thst the American ambassador in Rome, Ellsworth Bunker, was cosying up to the new Fascist leader, Marshal Graiiani, and cooling off on Premier de Gasperi. Not only did I not say this, but nothing could be further from the truth. De Gasperi rates ace hiqh with the ambassador, with the State Department, and with the White Home. I have known him personally, and regard him as one of the most courageous leaders of Western Europe. Unfortunately, both the Communists and Fan-i.Ms tn some extent are playing ball with each other in Italy, and the Istter. especially, are trying to cive the impression that U.S. officials are in their corner.

"If! not the baby's birth that's upsetting me." the patient announced vehemently.

A--Philatelists generally consider the British Guiana one-penny stamp of 1856 the rarest stamp in the world. Only one of Its kind has ever been found, and it is valued at 550.000. 0--Do any states observe Flag Dav as a legal holldt.v? A--Flag Day i! a legal holiday onh- in Penn- i.vlvania. Q--Why do cats' eyei shine at night? A--Cats' eyes slitter at night because of the light reflected in the tapetum. The tapetum is a layer of cell! which occupies a large part of the Inner eye of a cat. It is pink, gold, blue, and green in color and reflects different colors in different lighis. Q--Was tobacco known at the time Christopher Columbus explored America? A--Tobacco smoking originated with the Indian! of the Western Hemi!phere. probably a! early as 100 A D . European! first learned of tobacco smoking when it wa= observed in the West Indies by members of Columbus' crew in November. 1492. Some of the descriptions quoted by Fort are almost identical with the ones we read today . . . "an object of great luminosity, moving at high speed" ... "It moved backward and forward across the sky, apparently without turning" . . . "The object hovered, motionless in the iir, above a house." I should think this would be very reassuring to the Air Force "'fleers in Washington who are Heeling data on the saucers and trying to explain them. Maj. Gen. Roger M. Ramey said the other day about one-fifth of all the reported sightings "remain to be explained." Qweitjpns Arise If people saw. or thought they saw, objects in the sky a century or more ago, these questions immediately arise:' Were observers subject then, as ! r.TO-. to the same hallucinations? I Why didn't the saucers' crews ! ever land? Surely, tht world must I nave been a happier place in the ! IVth century than it is now. I Where have the saucers been I during the intervening time? Did I back regular reports of life on earth to the home headquarters. Fort said there might be some of these creatures right here in New York on Fifth Avenue, watching the passing parade you will find this not difficult to believe. Interesting Report! Their reports must male interesting reading. Probably they say ". . . and these earth-people are still so savage that the males wear neckties in the heat of the summer . . . " Well, personally, I hope one of the saucers makes a landing one o* these days, and we get a press conference with the crew captain. Being so many million years older than we. they ought to have the answers to mo«t of the problems besetting us. For example': "Captain, how did you folks out there on URSA major handle a national political convention so that there were fewer and better speeches?" Most likely, he will shake fiii head, sadly, and reply: "We haven't got that licked vet."
