Wayne Morse, Republican, of Oregon.) tugene, Ore.--On July B. 1853, the late Sen. Brlen McMahon and I Introduced in the Senate of the United States a resolution which proposed that the Committee on Foreign Relations should make a "full and complete study and Investigation for the purpose of determining ( I ) whit attempts, If any, hive been made by any individuals or groups of individuals representing the Chinese Nationalist government, the Chinese Communist government, or any other foreign government to Influence the foreign policy nf the United State* since December 7, 1141, and (1) the extent and means, including methods of financing, of any such attempts." Repeated rumors, charges and countercharge* that foreign agents representing foreign lobbies hid been exercising Improper and undue Influences over American officials, both in the. executive departments of government and the CongreM, had reached such widespread circulation In Washington that Senator McMahon and I decided that the American people were entitled to have the facts investigated. Little did we realize when we Introduced the resolution that we had touched upon what had become a political taboo in many circles of Washington officialdom. Judging from mysterious telephone calls, anonymous letters, and visitations which we received from some very remarkable characters, we sofdetllnes thought we had become the Innocent participants, if not the victims, in a fantastic Clolkrinri-daggcr game. The idminlitratlon. through the secretary of stale, offered to mike available any information contained in Its filet on foreign lobbies, if any authorized committee of the Congress «iked for It, THls of course wa a grind gesture oh the part of. the administration, because, as we pointed out, the executive branch of the government hai ih equal and Independent responsibility to check Into the activities of foreign lobbies, if it has in Its flics any Information which raises the slightest question as to the propriety of the conduct of foreign agents within the United States. The attempt of the administration to pass the buck oh Investigating lobbies should not fool the American people. It should conduct such an Investigation without prodding from the Congrats. On the other hand, the Congress has been equally guilty of the well-known political fame of buck-passing by placing resolutkmt calling for investigations Into congressional pigeonholes, with those responsible for such ducking of public reipon«lb|lit ; alibiing by mg|«sting thit the Department of Stale or the Department of Justice should act on their own initiative. * IV * Irrespective of who Is responsible for e failure to Investigate the many allegations concerning the actlvltin of foreign lobbies, the (act remains that there appears to be enough foreign-lobby smoke emanating front high office* in Washington to justify turning in i fire alarm. It Is the opinion of this writer that a thorough Investigation of foreign-lobby activities in the United (fate* would disclose that there it a very active Chinese Communist lobby working through Communist underground channels In the United Slates, In all probability, it would be found that its propaganda network, with its phony Asiatic pelce proposals and false accusations as to American foreign policy in Asia and alleged United NaHons atrocities tnd conduct of the Korejn war, fa well-financed by the Chinese Communist government. The sources of this propaganda need to be ferreted out and disclosed to th« American people. Likewise there appears to be much evidence that aftnts of the Nationalist Chinese government within the United States have been seeking to Influence American public opinion in an endeavor to promote our becoming involved in a preventive war in Alia. Both the executive branch of our government and the Congress have owed it to the American people for many months past to face up to this foreign-lobby problem, and It is to be hoped that, when Congress reconvenes in January, something at long last will be done about it. On April 10, 1052, this writer inserted In the Congressional Record S3 cablegr«ms allegedly sent by representatives in Washington, D. C. of the Nationalist Chinese government to Goneralii-' slmo Chiang Kai-Shek. This writer asked for investigation by the Foreign Relations Committee of the authenticity of those cablegrams, because if they were correct copies of cablegrams that were actually sent to the generalissimo by representatives of the Natloanllst Chinese government ih Washington, then on their very face they justified an exhaustive and intensive investigation of the activities of the National Chinese government in the United States. The cablegrams are subject to the clear interpretation that Nationalist Chinese representatives were under instruction from the Nationalist Chinese government to try to bring to b6ar upon various American foreign-policy makers influences which one would not expect to find in any Emily Post guide to proper diplomatic conduct. Although the Chinese officials concerned have denied that they signed the cablegrams, it Is interesting to note that In their communlca- lons to thit writer, which have also been placed in the Congressional Record, they have not denied thst the cablegrams were sent. Nor have they denied that they knew of their contents at They'll Do It Every Time By Jimmy Hatlo SprVHOGCTS SERVED RfaST,P(54x;TIC4LLy AS SOOM AS THE PUWE LfMVES THE «O»JD POUR?. the time they were tent. Nor have they denied that they participated at least in some degree in the preparation of the cablegrams. Under date of July 12, 1952, Ambassador V. K. Wellington Koo of the Nationalist Chinese government Embassy in Washington, D. C., in a letter to thit writer quoted from a report which had been submitted to him by two officials of the Chinese Imbtssy relative to these cablegrams. It would be difficult to cite a more amusing example of Oriental face-saving than the attempt of these .two Chinese officials now reporting to the Chinese ambasssdor to crawl under the charges which have implicated them In the tending of the** cablegrams. In effect whet they tay It that, although they knew all about the cablegrams and were active participants in the drafting of the cablegrams, they should now be considered at being Innocent of any Improper conduct In the matter because, as they allege, they did not sign the cablegrams 'at the end thereof. It Is interesting to note thit even this attempt at fice-siving by these Nationalist Chinese officials Is denied by those who supplied this writer with the cablegrams. In fact, these informant* point out that the signatures of these Nationalist Chinese officials appear in their own handwriting in the body of the cablegrams, which is typical in the preparation of Chinese documents, and that some of the cablegrams were written in part or in their entirety in the handwriting of one or the other of these Nationalist Chinese officials It Is not for me to nay what the facts are about the lobbying activities, if any, of these Chlnete offlcltls, but It is perfectly clear to this writer that neither the executive branch of the government nor the Congress can justify further delay In proceeding to conduct a thorough investigation of the activities of foreign lobbies as called for by the McMahon-Morse Senate Resolution 170.

Louise gave her mother a hug, then started cleaning her pnlette j She hummed a tune softly because she was so happy. Of course It war 1 too bad her mother couldn't seem 'to understand her art work. Perhaps all old people were like that. Loulie used to feel hurt by her molher's stupid criticisms, but she had gradually come to realize that her mother just did not know anything about art and never would understand. Louise sighed, ft was hard somttlmea not to have anybody around to take an Intelligent Interest in this absorbing work. Perhaps Harry-. At the thought of him she-smiled land began wondering if he'd like · her in the new dress she had made tor this evening. There had been a song in her heart as she took each stitch, she was so very much !ln love. The dress s e e m e d In ! keeping with her feelings, for it j was covered gaily with roses. ' She hoped Harry would not think it loud. She certainly had made it prettily, and it was becoming. Harry ought to be pleased that she could sew so cleverly. Did I men notice such things, she won- .dered, or were they only con- jcerned with--other things? ! Men of this day, the day ol the horstltss carriage, gas lights and » many modern improvements, didn't seem to notice pretty things. She put her easel and other art materials into their closet, then went upstairs to begin the cer mony of dressing. She slipped into the new dress and looked In the mirror with anxloua questioning. Then the smiled at the lovely girl who faced her there. She was glad at the way she looked. She knew It was love that had brought the sparkle to her eyes, the soft flush to her cheeks, the eager, trembling smile to her lips. For love had been gradually transforming her life, giving her a new Joy, a deeper purpose, a wiser outlook on the art ol living. · · · "THE sound of the parlor clock striking six made Loulie real- lie suddenly that she had work to do. She fattened her girdle of soft green satin around h*r walit, patted her curly chestnut hair, picked up her prettiest handkerchief, and ran downitaln.

I'll surely forget them," Louise murmured, going to the mantelpiece for a match. n the kitchen she found her mother in the act of opening the oven door. The delicious odor of browning biscuits filled the air. "Oh, mother, I was g o i n g to make the biscuits!" Louise ielt a Shock of d i s a p p o i n t m e n t. "I wanted Harry to know how well I can cook." "Well, you've done almost everything else, my dear," Mrs. Bentley said placidly. "You mustn't get all heated up, bending over the stove at the last minute. You just see if the table's all right and then sit down and rest till Harry gets here." "Do I look nice?" Louise continually needed reassurance on that point Mrs. Bentley's eyes rested fondly on her daughter, but all the said was, "I guess you'll do." Louise perched herself on a high stool and watched her mother puttering cheerfully about the big bright k i t c h e n . She loved the warmth of the range, the delicious smell of the biscuits, the purring of the k e t t l e . She wondered wheth«r she could ever become a real artist when she loved simple, domestic things so much. Just to be within the walls ot the house was a joy and comfort to her. All the simple homely Inks of housekeeping had for her a charm and beauty all their own. Then the doorbell rang, and I happy excitement set her heart fluttering at she ran upstairs to greet Hirry.

"And today," she was saying eagerly, "my teacher said that my painting showed real talent, and that if I kept on and worked hard, Td reach the Academy some day." How lovely Louise looked when she was excited! But what a fool that teacher was, urging the girl on, keeping her at her lessons. Women didn't ever reach the Acid emy--or hardly ever. He didn't know much about these things. What was Mrs. Oentlty saying? "That was very nice of him, I'm sure, my dear; but I guess he didn't know you're going to be married to soon. There won't be much time for painting when the babies have to be looked after.' "Oh, but, m o t h e r ! " Louise looked at her In dismay, shocked by the brutal, matter-of-fact calm- nets of the old.

"What's troubling you, my lit tie chickadee?" he asked playful ly. "Somebody put tand in you bird seed?" "Oh 1 don't bother your big heai about me," said Trellis Mae, ant flounced out into the kitchen te finish dinner. Wilbur sifhed and held hi; peace. He knew that whatever the matter was, he would hear abou it later. And sure enough he did-after they had eaten and he wa Mated comfortably in nil favorite chair, trying to read the sports page. "I'll tell you what's wrong.' Trllis Mae said suddenly. "You led to me--that'i what!" "Lied to you?" replied Wilbur wondering like any husband which la the meant. "How? · . . When?' "About our finances." "Well, what about our finan- cet?" ' 'Remember when I wanted that ur coat list year? It was a wonderful bargain for $1,000," tald Trellis Mat. "But you said no, we couldn't afford it." "W« couldn't then," said Wilbur stubbornly, "and we can't now." "How much did you make lait year?' demanded his wife. "I made $8,200 after paying taxei," tald Wilbur. "And we ·saved $500. But if we had bought that $1,000 fur coat I'd be owing the $106, instead of having it le the bank for a niny day." Trellis Mac thook her head at that. 'What I want to know is--are we or are we not as good at the average American family?" she said. "Of courte we are," said Wilbur. "Why?" 'Well, I read in the newspaper that a government report showed the average American family earned $4,300 lilt year, but tpent H700. "If the average famllr em afford to tpend $400 a year more than it earns, why can't we afford to spend $500 more than we earn? You make more than the average man. Why should we be the ones to fall behind?" "But, honey," objected Wilbur. "We aren't falling behind. Can't you see we're better off? Instead of owing $SOO, we have $500." "You mean the bank has the $500--and I don't have my fur coat," said Trellis Mae. "The more money you owe the better off you are. Anybody knows that." 'I don't see how you--" began Wilbur uneasily. "Well, take France," interrupted his wife. "Is France an average country or is it not?'* "I suppose you could say that France is--" "Now take the United States. Is the United States a wealthy country?" "Yes, but--." "Never mind that. Who owes more--France or the United States." "The United States, of course. But--." Well, is the United States bet- er off than France or not?" said Trellis Mae t r i u m p h a n t l y . 'Doesn't that prove the more you owe the better off you are? And would't we be better off, too, if had that fur coat?" A glazed look came into Wilbur's eyes. Numbly he got up, walked into the kitchen, turned he cold water fiticet on ai hard he could, then bent over and ut his aching head Under the oollng torrent. "No* what are you doing, sil- y?" asked Trellis Mae. "Trying to dry my hair," he aid. 'You don't make sense* Trellis Mae said. v "Neither do you," uld Wilbur, but I doubt if I'll ever be able o explain why." Dorothy Dix Dear Miss Dlx: When my hus- blnd left me, almost four years ago, I wts 21 tnd thought I could never love again. I was 16 when we were married; he was 18. After [our years, during which he served in the Army, he went to work n another city, from which he v/rote asking for a divorce. For four years I refused him, supporting myself and two children in the meantime. I prayed he would realiie his mistake and come back, bul finalb, last month, signed the last papif setting him free. My heart was broken and I was sure I would never know happiness again. Now I have a new job f o r tnree months, and sc: a certain man every day. I have become so fond of him that, even though I am against divorce and second marriage, I am sure if he asked ne to marry him I couldn't re*use. He hasn't asked me to' go out with him but I know he likes me. We have talked very little about ourselves but he knows my situa- ion, and about the children. I iaven'1 even thought about my husband in two months, but find myself waiting for every glimpse ot this man. Could there be any hope for a future with him? B. N. Answer: While there is little help that I con give--or that you would accept--my chief purpose in publishing your letter is to prove that broken hearts fan heal. Perhaps not always with the rapidity with which yours was mended, but a bright .'uture looms ahead in almost any disaster. He May Be Married You are, to be perfectly blunt, making a fool ol yourself over this business acquaintance. Your letter very clearly Itaves Apin the possibility that he may be married--a fact you apparently hive neglected lo ascertain. His actions toward you are typical of the usul office philanderer. A few stolen kisses, mutual flattery and declarations of pseudo-affection can lighten the monotony of a day's work, and I greatly fear that that is a/ you mean to your Lothario. Your life has not been too well ordered since your much-too-early marriage, but you are now 25, and should be experienced enough to separate the real from the spurious. With one disastrout marriage behind you, don't make the horrible mistake of laking on another one. Your moral objections to second marriage are a matter . between you and your conscience. If you need assistance along this line, see your minister. Apparently, however, the qualms are ready to b! smothered by the first propositioning Male who comes along. Exercise a little more discretion in your choice of friends; if necessary, take another job Id get away from the bad influence under which you are now moving. I am quite convinced that the man in the case is not honorably inclined. Any attentions you accept from him will lead to more trouble than you have already had. The first jewelry was fashioned, before recorded history, for divine protection . and magic power. The word "jewel" has its origin in the French word, "joic," meaning joy or gladness.
