THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·» MCW KABSON While Dr«w P*ar»en It un a brief vacation, the Washington Merry-Go-Hound Is being written by several distinguished guetl columnists, May's being Sen. Blair Moody, -Democrat, of Michigan. D«tro!--Th« best way for the American ptopl* to git the full, unvarnit'-ed picture of the rial Issues of the presidential camnaign, in my judgmtnt, would be a scries of debates on television and radio between Governor Sttven- spn imd General Eisenhower. This rriodern Innovation would give the vot- «r« an opportunity to decide directly which candidate -would provide the country with more competent leadership In this moment of history wh*n our future Is to dangerously al stake. H would offer a universal education on the problems of our nation nnd the world, never before approached. II would drav/ the issues be- tw*«n the parties on Jhe level of faci, not smear. It would give the people a chance (3 "know" their next president--his personality, his intellect, nnd his grasp of public affairs. It would provide both candidates an equal crack at what doubtless would be. the largest audience of all lime, without forcing either to raise huge kumes of money for the privilege of presenting their views to U'e people. And it would knock the ex mine bunk out of the campaign at the very top level. "Where's Everybodyr If the famous general from is matched with the great statesman from Illinois for un hour each v.-cok, perhaps from mld-ScDtember through October, the people will malic the right decision November 4. and « new high nattern will have been set for the future functioning of our democracy. Thi« suggestion was advanced bv the writer on People's Platform, a Columbia Broadcasting System radio discussion wi(S Sen. Allen J. Ellender, 'of Louisiana, on .July 27, the d«y after the Democratic convention adjourned. From CBS President Frank Stanlon comes a letter of interest, which also cites a possible obstacle. SUnton writes: "1 am In wholehearted aBrooment. It Is difficult to conceive of any method which would more surely contribute to the democratic processes of full and Informed participation in the election by voters." But SUnton points out Ihat the federal communications, act requires nn even distribution of public-service time not alone between Democratic and Republican parties but, according to P»H'-1 ;-s well. "While we are In full B.vmnalhv with the principle of fairness which Sec. 3I5 (A) intended to vindicate," Stanton writes, "we believe Its apparent frustration of so desirable a roiull as you suggest Is the best evidence of its fatal error. "Yet the broadcaster's license--Ihat Is. his right to st»v in business--is dependent on conforming with the ad. This. I bellevr, warrants re-examination of Sec. 315 (A) with a view- toward repealing It mid. perhaps. EiibstilutlnK some less ritld provision which would remove the roadblocks to broadcasts so obviously In the public Interest." Stanton susjests action In the next Cnngrcsf which would "permit radio and television IT play the vital role of which thoy are capable " * * V Perhans some change In law Is in order. But when Congress meets, this wnioplTii will be nver. An Informal check «l FCC indicates a more immediate way might be found around the obstacle. There are already a number of n a t i o n a l l y televised, nationally sponsored prnn-nm-; V/NCV specialize In precisely IMIs tyic of n^ichi.,TM of facts, wits, mid graso of the Issues. Nenrlv all senators and many congressmen have rartici- pa!.»t . While lh e standard .ID-miniMo tini" nft« n ,-u m out before Issues have been nrienualolv H;"i"icrl. n yriei of hour-long discussions, rnnninc over perhana six weeks, could be conducted with cornnletc fairness. It would be hard lo Imagine that the managers of any of these nrograms would obiect to f l n d i n t themselves suddenly wil'i tvo such riis- tinRuishcd participants. A re-schcriullng. nut- line two such 3n-mlniile nieces ond-lo-cnd. to nrovide the full hour, should pol be liuunerahle. It would, of course, be a w i n d f a l l for the soon- sors of the programs, who. under this system would niclt uo the check, but no larger a'check than l-ty meet weekly anyhow for less distinguished guests.

A--In 1986. New York-OR-Th* reason wo- mtn |*t more things done than men li that they knew better how to m»ke i fuel of themselves. There is no luel like an old fuel, and the oldest and best fuel Isn't wood, coal or oil. It Is anfij --plain old inner anger. Notice how a woman operates If she has a distasteful job to do the first thing she does is get al: ste,am*d up about It. Let us sup- »«« the chore her conscience «11« her she should be doing it her semi-annual housecieahing. A man faced with this task says, "I ought to tidy up this joint, and will, one of these days, but I eel awful tirtd today." And he Joesn't get around to shoveling out he debris until it threatens to mother him. But a woman says, "I hate the way this place looks." She is ngry at it, the anger gives her n*rgy, and soon "the dust and urniture are flying. By the time er anger is worn out, she can ollapse on a spick-and-soan 1 ! in a house that is shiny- right. That is why men are secretly afraid of women--because of the power of anger they have. Few obstacles can stand before the flaming energy of a wrathful lady at peak cry. A wise man, however , can exercise some influence over a woman if he cunningly learns to channel her ire in the right direction. Instead of coaxing her to do something he wants, he might find it better to make her so mad she cen't help doing it in spite of herself. A friend of mine worked this ruse successfully In getting his wife to pack her suit ease in time to catch a train for their vacation trip. He pulled out his watch and pointed at it. She dawdled. He pleaded. She dawdled. He beg?ed. She yawned. Finally, he picked UD one of her favorite dresses and taid: "Well, I forbid you to take this along. It makes you look like Queen Victoria on a picnic." "O:\ it does?" she snarled. "I'll wear wf'at I want to. smarty!" In a temoestuous burst of energy, · she packed the suitcase, snaoped it shut. They caught the train. "As a matter of fart, she was so angry she wouldn't speak to me for a week--but Js Uiat altogether bad?" recalled the husband. "But 1 learned a lesson: If ' you want to git a wife anywhere on time, first get her mad. Ruffle her feathers, then smooth them ,, out later." That Is sound psychology, UD to a point. Of course come wives when f-ey get mad, just go into another room and lock the door No rule works with all of them. And, of course, it usually works ' the other wsy. A woman uses her nger to whammy a man into ibeyine her whim. Many a fellow s nroddad Into success in life' only because of the long slow mrn of his wife over the fact the husband next door Is getting a''«ad faster. Her wrath feeds his will, and he rises In the world on borrowed fuel. There is another inner fuel, as old as anger. It is called fear Anger is a fighting fuel, fear is the fuel for running away. You need bofi to live. I may be a traitor to my tex, but It seems to me that women keeo these two fuels in better balance than men. They are less likely to be overwhelmed by either. . They know better when to be angrily brave, when to be cau- ' tionsly afraid. But. man or woman, nobody ever became a star in the human "·see until he learned how to make ' .the right kind of fuel of himself. Dorothy Dlx Dear Miss Dix: Recently I had : terrific quarrel with my father, and said some things for whtch I am very sorry. He said he never wanted to speak to me again. Twice I have tried to make up. have admitted I was wrong, but ic says he do^in't want to speak o me. How can I get him to listen to me? T. R. , Answer: You must have wounded your father's feelings very deeply for him to refuse so steadfastly to speak'to you. All you can do is renew your apologies at intervals until the hurt wean off a little. In the future, be more considerate of him and more careful of the things you say. Dear Miss Dix: For two months I have been going with a boy I have learned to love very deeply. Neither of us has gone with anyone else in that time. The last time | we were out together, he took me home, then told a boy friend to tell me he was golnj to school again and wouldn't see me for sometime. I love him so much i wouldn't care if we couldn't go out. I have called him. hav* had my girl friend call him and have written asking him to change his mind. I am 16, and he is three years older. JOSEPHINE Answer: Better start at the beginning again with a new beau, Josephine. This one apparently has other intentions, and your perslitent efforts to make him change them are driving him further away. After a friendship of two months, he can scarcely be expected to take a pledge of eternal devotion. You probably were altogether too possessive and demanding even during the brief two months of acquaintance. The chances of getting him back ire very slim and, whether you b«lieve it or not, I assure you your heart is not Irreparably broken. Dear Miss Dlx: What can a girl do when she doesn't want to go steady with one boy, yet all the crowd assumes that she is? I have been going with a boy for six months and. though I like him very much, I would liks to go out- Vlth other boys, as I think 1? is too young to go steady. How can ! show other boys that I am available for dates? VIRGINIA P. Answer: This is virtually impossible within the confines of your own crowd. The "|0ing stca-' dy" custom of today limits a couple's dates to each other when they've gone out together only three or four times. The difficulty · I would be that other boys in the group are probably similarly bound lo other girls. If you stop «oing with your present beau, naturally the friendship ends. A situation like this If one of the pernicious effects of going steady yet, sine? It has become so* intrenched as a teen-age custom, only time will change it -- as it does all adolescent trends. You might try inviting some other boy to a school djnce or picnic, or some other gathering to which you are supposed to bring an escort. Thil will let the other boys know that you are not lim-' ited to one male companion, but whether they will take up the cue or not Is another thliig. Giraffes rival camels In their ability to go without water. Jupiter is slightly less dense than the sun. The smallest kangaroos h a v e . heads smaller than those of rabbits. Hyenas have four toe» on each foot. | Foreign Exchange HORIZONTAL i 1 Japanese coin I 4 Mexican coin I You spend francs in a i French 12 Poem ·13 Persian coin ! 14 Hebrew measure 15 Limb U Hospital attendants II Cracked 20 Confuse 21 Twpical . plants 22 Goddess of ditcord 24 Salute 28 War gad 27 Musical direction 30 French ichoolt 32 System 34 Washes ligMly 35 Fancy 16 Hypothetical forces 37 Repote 39 Chemical sufflxn 40 Child'! toy 41 Deed 42 Task 4: Slicet of KC«p« 57 Female rabbit VERTICAL 1 Peruvian coins 2 Paradise 3 Denials 4 Supports 5 Ireland 6 Sorrier 7 Oil (suffix) 8 Common ailments 10 Touch K.
