Besides the traditional majority and minority leaders and whips, caucuses and conferences, there are now majority and minority policy committees, White House and. national committee liaison men. In this Congress, majority always means Republican and minority means Democratic. The policy committees of the Senate arc composed largely of "key" men, chosen because of leadership pobilions, experience and geographical rcprcsenlation. They meet as occasion demands to work out plans for party action on'important legislative matters. Somewhat similar commitlecs dealing ,with parly policy in the House arc the respective steering committees. However, the policy committcs in the Senate have a more elaborate setup, with regular staffs on the government payroll. The Senate has a conference majoiity and a conference minority. Here the word conference means a group or organization. These conferences meet to hear about policy committee plans and to voice their reaction to such plans or other party projects. The Republicans have a similar conference in the House, but the Democratic all-member organiza- ion there is called a caucus. Theo- etically," any Democratic House member who attends a meeting of he caucus is morally bound to abide by its' decisions. Conference decisions,are NOT bindng on scna- ors. A Senate or House party leader isualy leads in debate on import- coin parties have a "whip" in the Senate and the House. The whip is an assistant to the leader. It's nis job to :;ee that party members are present when important bills are to be voted upon. House whips have from three to six assistants. They often work on a regional basis in helping round up members when their voles are needed. , . . Sen. Wherry of Nebrasko is Republican whip in the Senate. Senator Lutas of Illinois is Democratic whip. Rep. Arends of Illinois is Republican whip and Rep. McCormack of Massachusetts Democratic whip in the House.

President if the latter is a member of the leader's party. The leader's support or opposition to proposed laws generally indicates, the party's attitude. In this Congress the Senate's Republican leadership has been divided. Sen. White of Maine, majority floor leader, shares leadership responsibilities with three other Republican senators. Sen. Vandenberg of Michigan is gener-. : ally regarded as Republican leader on international questions. Sen. Taft of Ohio, chairman of the Majority Policy Committee, and Sen. Miliken of Colorado, who presides at meetings of the'conference majority, are co-leaders with White on home-front matters. Democratic leadership in the Senate is much more unified. Sen.

REPHAN'S Bethlehem Star Actually Is Sinus AP Newsfeatures Note to Yuletide slargazers: That bright star you're likely to notice in the east on Christmas Eve isn't the Star of Bethlehem. It's Sirius, a winter star, the brightest in the sky and the one which uniformly catches the attention of people who confine their astronomical observations to Dec. 24. Star experts, amateur and professional, are accustomed to hearing Christmas Eve reports of a brilliant star in the cast which "just must have been the Star of Bethlehem." 1 But the only reason it isn't reported at .any other lime is that nobody pays much altention to stars in the east during the rest of the winter—except the people who know what they're seeing. It has never been satisfactorily explained why so many persons have the idea a yearly appearance is made by a star which religious adilion says was senl especially i guide Wise Men lo Ihe crib of n Infant Saviour nearly 2.000 ears ago. . Some astronomers have theorized ho Star of Bethlehem was in real- y a close conjunction of the lanets Jupiter and Saturn — per- aps accompanied by a nova which s a sudden and temporary flare f light from a previously faint 1' IT 1 Mathematicians have calculated he two planets wore very near ach other as seen from the earth n May October and Decembr of he year B.C.

G. Rogers Associated Press Arts Reporter Music records may be heavy to carry, hard to pack, difficult to tie to a Christmas tree and, most of them, easy to break, but done up in bright ribbons they make pleasant-sounding gifts. This year, because the lists keep getting longer and constant experiments with new recording techniques and materials brings results, there is more fine music available on records than ever before. Under the Columbia imprint, there are Verdi's "La Traviata" and, most appropriately, Humper- dinck's "Hansel and Grctcl," each in two albums; or Helen Traubcl and Torsten Ralf singing the love duet from "Tristan und Isolde"; or Handel's Twelve Concert! Grossi performed by the Busch chamber players. Suggestions from the RCA Victor lists include Beethoven's "Eroica," by Koussevitzky and the Boston Symphony, recorded on the non- breakable vinylite disks; or Fiedler and the Boston "Pops" recording Offenbach's "Gaitc Parisicnnc, • Khalchalurian's "Masquerade and Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite No. 2; or Rachmanioff's Symphony No. 2 played by Mitropoulos and the Minneapolis Symphony; or perhaps best of all, Beethoven's "Rasoumovsky" quartets, by the Paganini Quartet, in throe albums Bearing the Decca label and characterized by "full frequency range" are Beethoven's "Lcoonra Overture No. 2. Amsterdam Con- eertgebouw orchestra; Ravels "Daphnis and Chloe" suites 1 and 2 Paris Conservatory orchestra; or Uoussel's "Petite Suite," London Philharmonic. There are also good selections from Keynote's new clas- siaal division. Other music especially suitable for the holiday period is Handel s "Messiah" and Mendelssohn's ' Elijah," bath by the Liverpool Philharmonic conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent and excellent presents in any monin in the year; and an album of the songs of many faiths sung by dePaur's Infantry chorus—all from Columbia. Pcrgolesi's "Stabat Mater with the Boyd Neel Orchestra, and Rimsky-Korsakov's "Russian Easter Overture," with the National Symphony orchestra, are from the linglish Decca. o— Long Arm of Taxes Tokyo — I/Pi--- U.

"Preparations for these great occasions, when the Church of the Na- ivily and the Manger Square in ront of it is jammed with people, are not difficult," says the mayor. 'For years traditions and customs lave established set ceremonies which are carried out rigidly." The mayor, who says he is "fond of collecting things about the Holy places," keeps a detailed diary and shrine of the same name in Jerusalem. The Christmas observance of the three largest Christian groups in Palestine, Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Armenian, begins with the procession of their respective patriarchs from Jerusalem on the six-mile winding road along the top of the hills. The mayor meets them in Man- ;er Square and escorts them in olemn procession lo their respec- ive sections of the Church for Christmas Eve services. o One Mayor Wanted Free Show for Police Each Day Denver — (ff>) — John T. McPar- and, retiring at 71 as superintendent of the city auditorium, recalls that in the silent movie days, former Mayor Robert Speer insisted on a free show for the police every Sunday. "Eighteen of us used to go crazy trying to give realistic sound effects for those shows," McParland said.

GREEN s, Washington Dec. 24 — (JP)— The 60-day whisky-making holiday ends at midnight tonight, leaving distillers free to use as much scarce gram as they wish until the government finds a way to intervene The situation is not expected to prevail very long, however, since mUnatcS' of President Truman say he is, prepared to sign : the Republican anti-inflation bill which restores his wartime power to ration grain for making liquor. If so. ihe distillers may be limited to 2;500,000 bushels of grain a month — a figure which Secretary of Agriculture Anderson has .been trvm'g to persuade 1 them to accept voluntarily. . •-•,•"'' The 65 per cent of the industry represented ; oy the Distilled Spirits Institute, while unwilling to go all he way with Anderson, is pledged o use only 45 per 'cent as much gram as it consumed a year ago.

In a prepared statement given out after the army in Washingto had divulged his application lor permission to resign, Davis mere- y said it had been filed through regular army channels, "in the same manner as any other officer who desires to be Separated from the seivioe," , , And sidestepping any discussion of future plans, such as playing professional football in the event his request is granted, Davis noted: "I am not at liberty to discuss (the petition) further." Davis soon to turn 26, and an All-America player at the Point m 1 1944-45-46, is spending a holiday leave with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph O Davis, at nearby Cl»remont, Calif. His playing partner during those great years, also commissioned a second lieutenant following grad uation last June, Felix (Doc) Rianchard. said at Randolph Field, Tex. yesteiday that he planned to follow an aimy career as a ilier.
