Tlie photographer insisted on a group shot of the monkeys, who were sitting in the first three rows of the studio theater. They wanted ill the monkeys to look up at the screen.

In Dad's Footstep Blue Nile Dam Frets Anglo-Egyptian Relations ADDIS ABABA—fy>i—IJ at long last a dam is built across the headwaters of the Blue Nile at Lake Tsana in Ethiopia, as has been reported recently, an old and complex diplomatic question will have been settled in this part of Africa. The Blue Nile dam problem has .ong occupied a prominent and permanent place in Anglo-Egyptian relations, and souictinies in Anglo- Italian relations. Ever since the turn of the present century England's diplomatic activity in this particular part of Africa has been postulated on a Lake Tsana dnm concession, or at least u guarantee that no oilier interest should be permitted to tamper with the Lake Tsana water supply.

He asked tlie four previous KCipieiHs of the Clajjpe; award to act as judges. "Columnists have an advantage ''winning awards." Edson said, " they can pick their own stories and write as they please. But the best reporting done in this town is done by leg men—the working reporters on the beats." Edson criticized an article in a recent Harper's Magazine entitled at the home of Martha, M?Hhu, and Bobtiie Jean Byrd at Leachville, to participate in the two-hour training class.

"The Old Settler." "The While Lion." "Yesterday." ond "The Praying Pirate." "Washington's Armchair Correspondents by One of them.' 1 He said edge would refute that article. In handing the 'certificate of thr Clapper award to Ed.son, President Truman smilingly .said he approved Edsou's plan to "distribute the wealth." as the ccllumnist put it. He said Ed&on was the columnist for his own home town paper, the Independence (Mo.) Examiner. Eci.son is columnist for almost everyone's home town paper—those home town i.s Wn.shin;>ton or New York and those who hail from Bcloit, Wis.. or Waltham. M'iss.. or any one oi hundreds of large and small communities the nation over. His column, distributed by NEA Service, reaches an estimated 20 f 000.000 persons each day. Edison's popularity is ba.sed on fac" that he \s an indefatigable reporter arid hP reports in the language of the average reader. He employs no leg men and his familiarity with first-hand sources is typified by the spying: "Yen usually meet Pete Edson coming out when you arrive at a big shot's office for an interview." with England no longer rcMx for Egyptian affairs, Egypt hits replaced Italy and is now directly and independently Involved.
