told how Gene had started 70 years ago in Denver how he migrated to Chicago and New York the Jerusalem of journalism and of how he had in time become a Hearst editor and a writer of books The only integral item left out was that Gene Fowler had the heart of a benevolent giant He loved whole hosts of people some of whom he never met Fowler was two generations ahead ofme but even though we never saw he used to take time out in his California home to write encouraging notes His newest book published after his death is before me as I write It is called Skyline and it must be said at once that this is not Gene Fowler at his best It is Mr Fowler talking to himself about his early days and like most reminiscences it tends to wander Still it tells more about the newspapers of the 1920s and the great reporters than other book Mr Fowler was always caught squarely between laughter and tears When he wrote The Great Mouth a book about the chicanery of lawyer William Fal lon it required no intelligence on my part to divine that Fowler was sympathetic to the crooks Especially if the crooks were hopelessly in love Sometimes he wept for them Good Night Sweet story of Genes friend John Barrymore would cause a block of granite to shed a tear Beau the biography of Jimmy Walker still haunts me And yet they were not sad books Every other page is loud with ribald laughter You be the judge Let me quote at random from News is history shot on the wing The huntsmen from the Fourth Estate to bag only the peacock or the eagle of the swifting Associate with wellmannered persons and your own manners will improve Run with decent folk and your own decentinstincts will be strengthened Keep the company of bums and you will become a bum But hang around with rich people and you will end up by picking up the tab and dying HE QUOTES A NOTE FOUND on Bat Mastersons desk when he died in 1921 There are many in this old world of burs who hold that things break about even for all of us I have observed for example that we all get about the same amount of ice The rich get it in the sum mertime and the poor get it in Fowler quotes a lot from Damon Runyon Mr Runyon was his Denver antecedent and sometimes Fowlers hero said Runyon a reporter is as out of place as a doorbell in a He also said that the most courageous thing in New York is a blade of grass Describing a card sharp Runyon said If you give him a box of soda crackers he can deal you four One of the richest paragraphs is ttys Common sense as well as my fastgrowing reportorial experience persuaded me that life is an ordeal The way one meets it marks the size and meaning of a man Some meet it With pious resignation others with philosophical stoicism others with a desperation which finds the wayfarer gomewhere between the poles of terror and heroism If life be a tragedy it is touched with mystery and grandeur No cynic has the moral right or the special wisdom to contend that it is in vain we live or to hold humanity in contempt and cast stones of mockery among tiie footsore pilgrims If in my barebranch years I still have some sap left it is because I learned to make a friend of THEN THERE ARE THE LITTLE QUOTES The beard was parted in the middle and fluttered like the lace curtains of a rectory Or love affair had gone the way of lilacs kept too long in the vase In a saloon There we applied silver polish to the linings of all our clouds Fowler was a great reporter and a great editor Those adjectives are not abused When he was managing editor of Hearsts New York American Fowler used to Stand in the doorway of his office playing a mandolin We plucked little tunes as he watched his city desk and his writers Once he fired Walter Davenport for describing a white horse in a suffragette parade as dappled grav Pavenport was hired bank after he explained that he had covered the parade through a tavern window which was with fly specks Gene fowler said that the most difficult thing in life is that it is filled with too many goodbyes So I shall not farewell to him He is alive forever in of of words Instead I shall quote one of bis lines Love and memory last and will so endure til fame is called because of Building Homes A Challenge By BRUCE BJOSSAT THE HOUSING experts con servative guesses are that the nation will need 16 million new houses in the 1960s just to keep pace with the expected new fam ily formation On top of that they say cen sus figures indicate another 16 million dwelling units should either be scrapped or re habilitated to assure that the rising population will be decent ly housed Prospects for getting these two major housing jobs done do not at this time seem unduly bright Since I960 saw only mil lion housing starts and the pro jection for 1961 is a little more than million we will have to force a stiff pace in the remain ing years of the decade to achieve the necessary annual average of million How is the slack to be tak en up President Kennedys omnibus housing program aimed broadly at that objective is not specif ic in forecasting gains in new starts Most hope evidently is pinned to the proposal for nodownpay ment 40year mortgage financ ing on homes costing to Yet neither government housing officials nor private builders have publicly tried to guess what boost this will give the housing market For their part the private builders led by E J Burke president of the National Asso ciation of Hcme Builders say they are trying to come up with a good solid house cheap er than that now available in all sectors of the country Even1 if it be assumed they can break into this untried ter ritory and it involves experi ments with materials design changes pressure to alter hamp ering building codes the esti mate is that the housing mar ket may be enlarged by only units a year Tacking that onto the expected total of million for 1961 that still leaves a gap of some 000 units to close in order to at tain million starts a year And no one apparently dares to say exactly how that can be done The private builders say they are increasingly interested in taking on part of the huge urban renewal task projected far the country But this again is un tested ground for them They are still educating themselves on the problems Obviously it takes a rash opti mist to predict that the housing goals for the 1960s will be met The American economy has few tougher challenges confronting it WELL REMEMBERED With world attention on trouble spots In nearly every sector of the globe it is largely forgotten that tiny Austria was once such a place A reminder came recently with the retirement from office of Aus trian Chancellor Julius Raab who presided in 1955 when at last a peace treaty was conclud ed and both Allied and Soviet troops left that countrys soil In the days of occupation Austria like West Germany gave the world a strong lesson on how to resist the incursions of So viet communism Now it is officially neutrul un der terms of the treaty But the West has never doubted where Austrias and Chancellor Raabs true sympathies lay He de serves the warm thanks of the free world for eight years of able courageous service Shorts The governor of St Eustatius Island in

Revelations Upset Senate Space Meeting By DREW PEARSON WASHINGTON Sen Bourke Hickenlooper rushed into the closeddoor session of the Senate Space Committee the other day a bit late In his hand was a Drew Pearson column and the Senator from Iowa had blood in his eye Here is a column by Drew Pearson saying the Russians sent men into space ahead of Gagarin He names names and tells just who the Russians sent up CIA says this isnt so What about it Dr Herbert Scoville the space expert for Central Intelligence was testifying before the Space Committee when Hickenlooper broke in He looked surprised So did other members of the commitete Hickenlooper seemed quite indignant So was Sen Tom Dodd Democrat of Con necticut whom this writer has described as the Democratic Joe Pearson is a congenital said Dodd Every President in the White House has denounced him I wouldnt believe a word he Sen Bob Kerr of Oklahoma Chairman got impatient and tried to change the subject But Senator Hickenlooper was notsatisfied He emphasized that the Pearson column had given the names of the Russian astro nauts and the approximate dates in which they had attempted their space flights Dr Scoville when pressed by Hickenlooper for an explanation of the conflict between t h e Pearson column and the CIAs information maintained that Yu ri Gagarin had been the first Russian in space At one point Senator Wiley of Wisconsin Republican c o m plained that the discussion in volved security and ought not to be talked about in haphazard fashion Wiley also complained that he couldnt hear LOUDER PLEASE Get closer to the he told Dr Scoville I cant hear All the microphones are turned off for security said one of the committee clerks Senator Wiley was moved up closer to Dr Scoville so he could hear said Sen Steve Young of Ohio I have nt read the article What troub les me is that the CIA has been making mistakes Here are some definite assertions by Pearson There must be some basis for these assertions Do you say that the Soviet Union never preced Boyle Column Mail Bag By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK AP Things a columnist might never know if he didnt open his mail The most novel cure for hic cups

whether others at the CIA might have different in formation Scoville insisted that they would testify as he had Senator Hickenlooper contin ued to pursue the subject He indicated that something ought to be done about Pearson Final ly Senator Magnuson of Wash ington entered the discussion pointing out that the Pearson ar ticle was somewhat speculative and did not report as an abso lute fact that other Russians had earlier been launched into space Isnt it possible that some at tempts were made by the Rus sians to put a man into space prior to Gagarins flight asked Senator Kerr Yes its replied Dr Scoville Well isnt that what the ar ticle says concluded Kerr NOT IN ORBIT What Dr Scoville apparently didnt under stand and what Senator Hicken looper didnt make clear was that the column in question April stated that the Rus sians were reported to have sent three men straight up on rocket rides as early as 1957 58 and 59 but had not put them in orbit The first was the World War II pilot Alexis Ladovsky who went up in a rocket in 1957 to an altitude of 200 rmles and dis appeared The next was Terenty Shiborin who shot up in early 1958 but never came back The next flight was attempted in January 59 by Andrei Mitkov His rocket exploded 20 minutes after takeoff None of these were attempts at orbiting aroundthe the column stated They were simply rocket rides such as the first American astronaut will attempt next There was therefore no con flict with Dr Scovilles state ment that Gagarin was the first Russian in orbit even though the Space Committee did spend about 30 minutes over Hicken loopers consternation Note Most important reve lation at the space meeting was the fact that the United States had taken TV photographs of Yuri Gagarin in his space cap sule He was only about 200 miles up and it was fairly easy for a scientific TV station to photograph him CAPITAL NEWS CAPSULES Guerrillas Secretary of Defense McNamara will start developing a deadly guerrilla warfare branch

VlCfOE RtESEL NEW YORK During a recent meeting here of Ihe Communist Party leadership behind the tightly closed doors of 23 W 26 Street it was decided that San Francisco was the happiest hunting ground for those in Red politics The Party leader Gus Hall said they would attempt to run their May Day cele bration in that city They knew theyd have difficulty renting a hall Being realists they did what any pragmatist would do They went to the manager of the auditorium in the head quarters building of Harry Bridges International Long shoremens and Warehousemens Union He checked his open dates closest to May Day This opening fell on April 29 The hall was hired or an rally ILWU national headquarters hall at 150 Golden Elizabeth Gurley Flynn chairlady of the American Communist Party Not inconsequential is tha fact that the rental is quite nominal The use of the longshoremens hall by the American Communist Party leadership raises some fascinating questions True the hall is for hire But not certainly to all comers Would Mr Bridges lease the hall paid for by his members dues to the Ku KIux Klan or the Amer ican Nazi Party I doubt it He would not want news stories to be tapped out on the worlds new tickers stating that the KKK met in the ILWU hall But news stories especially those filed behind the Iron and Bamboo curtains will say that American Com munists met in the Longshoremens auditorium This will lend prestige to the Party This will insinuate that Amer ican labor and American Communists are in some sort of united front THIS MAY NOT EMBARRASS Harry Bridges After all this truly powerful Pacific waterfront leader once did write that The position of our union should be understood on they will take help from any source and if it is a question of Communist or others in Australia Great Britain Russia France or anywhere else in the world when we send out a call for help we dont say Just accept this call if you are not a Commun ist we send it out and we hope for the best That is true of my membership and that is the way we work and that is all we are Harry Bridges may not be embarrassed by the Corn munistled meeting in his headquarters hall for did he not organize a Pacific and Asian dockworkers conference of bitterly unions He did They met in Tokyo May 13 1959 and their continuation committee has been meeting ever since Bridges himself issued a call for that parley Back there in Tokyo they agreed that their affil iated unions would help each other across the world in the event of any of them struck in their home ports The conference also intrigued observers by urging a division of the United Nations to investigate labor con ditions in Okinawa and Cambodia This resolution said that working conditions in these areas were inhuman and It should be pointed out right here that the governs Okinawa on which rests one of our mightiest defense bases And Cambodia nestles right alongside besieged Laos Fascinating isnt it THE PARLEY DEMANDED that we get our atomic arms out of Asia and our bases out of Japan Harry Bridges addressing delegates from Russian Indonesian and Australian waterfront unions denounced our peace treaty with Japan And to bring this right up to the minute let me re port an interesting set of almost similar resolutions passed by the recent ILWLT convention in Hawaii These in cluded a pledge of cooperation with allPaciic and Asian dockworkers All this may not embarrass Harry Bridges But what of Congressmen including one Senator who called him my friend And what if the labor men who have pacts with his union
