But it's not hard nt all to congratulate the Athletic Department on the new booklet juat off .the press, called "The 1952 'Arkaniai Ratorback All Sports ''Book."

In an introduction it ia stated that , "This book is primarily designed to meet the needs of the iportft-wriUra and iporti announcers.

Before .many weeks arc patt. the 1952 football team will be taking the field againet a number of top-ranking powers in the gridiron world.

Tht fact thit Ambassador Ycrofcev is being stationed In Uruguay Ir due to that country's being one of only tour touth-oJ-the-bordar republics which still retain formal relations with the Soviet Union. The others are Argentina, Mexico and Guatemala. Until, Chile, Cuba and Venezuela have aevirid diplomatic tin with Moteow.

Moreover, local Commies count on liberal help from the largt statin ana* fit budgets of the Soviet embattle* h Havana and Mexico City. But, as the cold war settled in, and especially after fighting started in Korea, all the Russian money that wii ivillible couldn't keep the Red causi from losing Mexican ind Cuban lymrjathlzers by the thousands. When the Batista regime took the first opportunity to (orc« · break with Moscow, Russian Embassy personnel In Havana, Including cook:, chauffeurs an* gardeners, had dwindled to a total of 14, against 41 In 1141. During that time period, Mexico, ilthough maintaining outwardly correct relations with the Kremlin, wit getting progressively tougher In her official attltiMli toward domestic Reds. Furthermore, Prealdenl Miguel Aleman's government has dealt out tome pointed social snubs to Russian diplomats In thi last two years. Real barometer of thi drittle wine of Communist Influence In Mexico came with last month's general election!, when Labor-Leader Vicente Lombardo Toledano, a fellow traveler, received only, about 10,000 voles for the presl- dtncy--less than one-halt of one per cent of the total cut. · * * Meinwhlle, little Uruguay, politically the freest and most democratic nation in Latin America, became Increasingly the focal point for Moscow's maneuvers Uruguayan immigration laws permit cltliens of all adjoining countries to enter and leave at will without so much "at a tourist card. Taking idvantage of this, the 'Commies made Montevideo their chief international meeting-place in the Western Hemisphere. Ambassador Gorclkln, Moscow's envoy there since 1949, was a shrewd, smooth customer with a record of H years' loyal service in the Soviet diplomatic corps. He made few personal friend; In Uruguay, but he alto avoided making con- aplcuoui enemies. He showed a fine knack for engineering Communist reunions without inconvenient publicity ind helped a handful of native Red leaders to keep several key labor uhlont under Moscow's thumbs. However, Communist influence in Uruguay also began to slip badly--and, with it, Ambassador Gorelkin't preitlgt tn tht Kremlin. Now he nil been recalled In favor of i mm with a quite different background and I sharply revised mission. Viilly Yerofeev, the new ambassador to Montevideo, it a persons! protege of NKVD Chief Uivrtnty p.

Thtrj it no long- n much likelihood of a filling out between the Dtmoccttic candidate ind Pireild«nt Harry S. Truman, It may be added that the prophet; begin to predict tuch a falling out, tad the' Republicans began to hatt for It, quite a little time after the danitr had really passei. The real story of the curious and somewhat uneasy .Truman- Stevenson relationship is relatively simple in outline. From the very firtt, 1,1 was pointed out very early in thii space, there was a :rni»r Issue to be settled between the President and the nominee. Would Stevenson declare his independence, or would he allow him- jelf to be overshadowed by Tru:nan ? Truman wanted two things which meant overshadowing Stevenson almost completely. He- wanted to impaign nearly as actively as the candidate himself, in his familiar whlstlestop manner. And he wanted to keep his hand on the campaign organization, by continuing Frank MeKinney in his post as chairman of the Democratic National Committee. It was" more than two weeks ago when Stevenson made it clear that he could not go along with Truman on either of these crucial points. In fact the real crisis between the two men seems to have bsen reached rather soon after the Democratic convention, when Stevenson indicated that he did not wish to retain McKlinney a.' national chairman. This WES the definitive declaration of independence. At the same time, Stevenson also made it pretty clear that he did not wish the PresicJsnt to carry out his plan for whistlestop campaigning. The nev/s reached Truman during his' post-convention vacation at Independence, Mo. According to those close to him, the president was at lirst both hurl endangered by the seeming rebuff. Somewhat naively, he had expected Stsvenson to be guided by him in all things, and the first shock of disillusion was severe. Yet Truman is always a gooi soldier. He has a downright religious respect for political traditions -- and there is no stronger political tradition than the right ' of a presidential candidate to boss his own campaign. Moreover, after reflection, Truman also saw :he force of Stevenson's argument, .hat he needed a chance to make his mark with the voters ss « major political personality in his own right. There was some further maneuvering, undoubtedly, bafore tlif home.'' He was ilindi.-.g at the screen door, opening It. His voice wai brusque and impersonal. She almost had to run to keep up with him as he strode up the path. » « · TJS stopped and waited for her to catch up. "You little nitwit," he cald hoartely, "you're · spoiled brat that's always had her own way about everything and thinks thi can have just anything she Ukej i fan.-jr to. Why don't you flop tooling around here and go back to Hiw York and git married? At least go beck to your own kind." Laurie couldn't think 01 anything to My. to she followed Aim silently the rest of the way. There was a light tn the library still and at Steve's knock her father cam* out to the door. "I've got your child here. Louis. She fell asleep on my davenport and 1 found h«r there when 1 got home lust now." "For goodness . snke, Lnurle," her lather said, "1 thought · you were upstairs in your own bed nslecp." She went past him swiftly. "Good night, Dad." In her own room the shut the door and stood there against It. Her eyes brliMMd aad spilled over. The tally lean stung her chofki and one ran down her note. Steve's word* echoed la her mind confusedly. Maybe the taould go back and marry rmeher. She Kit ·My tart aad confuetd. President and the ptrty leaden accepted Stevenson's hichly personal .choice of Stephen A. Alitch- ell to succeed McXinney at national chairman. Nonetheless, thi real Issue between Truman and Stevenson had aireeiy been settled long before the President returned to Washington. Hence the Truman - Stevenson meeting at the White House * could be, and was, rather cut- and-dried. the atmosphere between the t'.vo men bai been do- _ cribcd, by one who should know, " as "not cozy but comfortable." They made their joint campaign plan easily and without serious argument. There is sound strategy In the plan they agreed on--speeches by both Stevenson and Truman on- Labor Day; intensive cross-country campaigning by Stevenjon thereafter; and further speeches or perhaps a short campaign tour by Truman after October 1. The plan minimizes the chances of any. Truman-Stevenson crossed wires. Accidents can always happen, of course, but there is now only one major area where it is realistic to. look for a Truman-Stevenson disagreement. This is the area of such great policy questions as civil rights and the Taft-Hartley law. This area is not supercharged with personal tensions, as was the issue of Stevenson's independence of, or dependence upon, Truman. ' Yet it can conceivably make trouble, nonetheless. The t r u t h is that Governor Stevenson has shown a tendency to take a compromise line on civil rights, on labor and even on the tidelands oil question. This the president thinks neither right nor politically wise. Such Truman intimates as W. Averell Harriman, who did their, best to smooth over the earlier difficulty, do not approve of compromise on the great policy. The Truman crcnies, who did their, host "to inflame trie earlier difficulty, will also seize upon any Stevenson tendency towards compromise, in orr'«r to needle the President against the nominee.' The great policy questions were omitted from the Truman-Stevenson campaign review here. In short, there is no assurance, «s yet,' that the President and the nominee will not begin to sing two conflicting tunes. The word comes from Springfield, however, that this chance of trouble is-diminishing too. Although he will not use an oratorical meat-axe in the Trurnah manner, Stevenson is said to be increasingly inclined to take the kind of strong line Truman will approve. Altogether, a powerful Democratic bid for victory seems to bs shaping up. Dorothy Dix Dear Dorothy Dix: The boy I like is in the army, and is now home on a thirty-day leave. He is never content to stay in one place any length of time, but is aHvays anxious to be off somewhere else. I enjoy being with him, but don't like so much activity. If I tell him to go ahead without me, he won't go. He comes to my house for about an hour, then suggests that we go someplace where the teenagers gather. These places are all perfectly all right, so there is no question of impropriety involved. He always seems to want to be with a crowd, yet he won't go anywhere without me. I hate 10 have him miss his fun, and yet I don't like this constant activity. Lou Answer: First of all, you must try to understand why the boy behaves as he does. Remember, he hat gotten used to army life, where every wirjyte of the day is given over to some form of supervised activity. Naturally, after several months of nuch living, It's a little difficult to come back to nor~nal and have long stretches of the day to spend in complete idleness. Some boys respond *.o military life by carrying the discipline and orderliness over to their civilian life. Others are only too harjpy to be relieved of the strain of pre- cis* living, and can snap back to normal at a moment's notice. Your friend, of course, belongs in the first category. You simply cannot expect him to be happy with long periods of inactivity. However, by. being more enterprising with the amuse- nenls you offer at home, you ma'y e able to cut into hit desire for consant travel from place to place. Have the gang into your house as often at Mom will permit. Plan games, prepare simple refreshments and, by providing an interesting home itmosphere, you may make him realize that one need not be -on the go constantly in order to be entertained.
