Last full measure a surprising reaction to the action of Justice Douglas in the Rosenberg Case was expressed by a number of people who Felt that the last minute Holdup of the execution would look like a sign of weakness As if we were not quite sure that what we were doing was right. It is being said that the coins units will take this View and propagandize upon it and make us look bad. We have heard some very Good men expressing this View As explanation for their resentment against Justice Douglas. But quite the contrary View is the Way we see it. The last minute action of jus Tice Douglas rather proves that the Rosenbergs were getting every possible Chance under our system of government. The last minute Appeal did not indicate any Lack of conviction on anyone s part except one Man s and even his doubt had nothing to do with the Justice of the ver dict but on whether the pair should have been tried under a different Law. Actually the reds themselves know All the tricks and loopholes of american penal Law. If the Rosenbergs had not been Given this last faint Chance then the communists would have been Able to scream that their friends had not been Given every Chance. They would have been Able to say that the court was afraid to give it to them. In Short we believe the reds would have had More and better propaganda material if the Fyke Farmer argument had been brushed aside As in All common sense it might have been. There would have been screams of railroading and a lot More nonsense. Of course the reds Are going to Salvage they can out of the whole Case. The Rosenbergs will be held up As martyrs by the reds who know that if the shoe had been on the other foot and a couple of russians had been caught dealing with the United states there would be no Long drawn out trial and appeals. We can t Stop the reds from putting a wrong construction on what we did. But it would be a lot easier for them if Douglas had said no to Farmer. You May not make it at a recent meeting of the Kingsport safety Council there was an interesting discussion of ways and Means to make people More traffic safety conscious and the interesting Point was made that accidents Are Seldom the result of ignorance but of the Law of averages finally catching up with people who regularly take what seems to be Small chances. You might say that optimism causes accidents. These Are the sort of chances that peo ple get away with every Day. And if you say right after they have done so that was a foolish thing to do just a Little less Luck and you would have had a the Chance taker is Likely to laugh and say Don t be a or More commonly i did t really take a Chance because i know i could make most accidents happen because some body took what looked like a Small Chance and was quite sure he could make it. There is hardly Ever any real need to take the Chance. There is hardly Ever any real gain to be had by taking it. But there just is no realization of the Good reason for not taking it. Yet when the Accident occurs some body who has frequently said Triumph Antly i knew i could make has to change his comment to i thought i could make provided that he is not beyond making any comment at All. Summer is a great time for pleasure driving. Therefore it is a great time for Little Chance taking. The Kingsport safety Council is urging people just to Cut Down on those Little chances. It would like to see every Motorist and pedestrian change his thinking from i m sure i can make it to i might not make acting on that thought you won t do that one Little thing one of these Days that you won t get by with. It does t Cost anything to play Safe. It May Cost a lot not to play Safe. Just remember you might not make merry go round Hollywood by Drew Pearson de. Drew Pearson writes an other column on America s lost leadership of the free world and what we can do to regain it Washington As you wander through the relics of ancient Rome or gaze from the acropolis Down on what were once the glories of Greece you wonder Why those empires passed. And too you wonder will american leadership pass Why is it you1 ask yourself As you visit the tombs of the pharaohs and the great Pyramid of Egypt that its vaunted civilization faded and Why did the British Empire whose Flag once flew from almost every Corner of the Earth pull in its horns can we the United states of America now the most powerful nation in the world avoid the Pitfalls of our predecessors it was we who won the War who helped write the peace and kept the Western world free after the peace. It was our ideas on re construction that have prevailed. We have been the leaders of the free world. Can we continue can we withstand the persistent shrewd ruthless push of another nation con trolling the greatest land mass in the world already our diplomats have warned us that we have lost the the Leader ship of Europe. Already our Best friends the de Gasperi government in Italy the Adenauer government in Germany and the Middle of the Road government of France Are paralysed. Even our Good Friend Winston Churchill criticized at Home for being too pro american has taken leadership away from us and is calling the tune on a big four conference. Meanwhile we have vacillated hesitated permitted some of the tactics of a Semi fascist which have been exaggerated in the news of Europe until they really think we Are fascist and Don t care much whether they Are led by a police state in now extends an alleged Olive by a fascist state in North Amer Ica which insists on big armies. Why empires fall historians generally Tell us that the great empires of the past were overthrown because they vacillated because they used unreason Able police Power which turned Public opinion against them and because they put local interest ahead of their wider International interest. Whatever May have been the reasons of the past however let s examine the Means by which we can recapture our own limping leadership of the free world. 1. Demand free elections in the satellite states for years we have talked about the Day when Poland Hungary Czechoslovakia it Al would Rise up against their soviet Mas ters. Today they Are doing it. Today East berliners have the courage to face russian tanks with nothing More than Sticks stones and Bare hands. Today czech workers Are rioting in the streets of Pilsen. Yet we who once led the world have sat by doing nothing. We have let Russia take the initiative away from us by one phony peace move after an other while we could easily come Forward with a legitimate and inspiring demand that these countries be permitted to vote. Such a vote would be supervised by the United nations. Such a vote would result in casting off the Yoke of communism. We should resume our leadership by making this demand again and again by pounding it Home until we get results. 2. Demand a United states of one of the great mistakes of the Truman administration was not to make the Marshall plan dependent upon the economic integration of the european continent and an eventual United states of Europe. For Europe s economic ills Breed wars and the Small countries of Europe can no More exist independently than Detroit could exist if it sold automobiles Only in the state of Michigan. There was no use building up French and italian factories therefore merely to handle their own Domestic markets. These markets have to be integrated. Furthermore when the satellite states throw off the Yoke of communism they will have to be offered a Chance to fit their agricultural economies into the Industrial Economy of West Europe a natural partnership. The late count Sforza foreign minister of Italy emphasized this to me in 1947. The salvation of Europe is a United states of he said. And unless you Knock our Heads together Marshall plan we won t achieve it. You have the bargaining Power Over us. Use though time has been awaiting we still have that bargaining Power through Mutual Security Aid. Furthermore Many europeans themselves have come round to the Sforza Point of View. Many Are even ahead of us. What they need is vigorous support and leadership by the . 3. Demand the lifting of the Iron cur Tain for some time the United states has talked plaintively about russian refusal to let the free world visit her shores. Recently ambassador Charles Bohlen cabled from mos cow that Russia was about to take the Initia Tive away from us by proposing an Exchange of students scholars and scientists a slight lifting of the Iron curtain. This gives us the Cue to act first not let Moscow get the jump on us As she has so consistently of late. Furthermore we should not let Moscow get away with opening a Mere crack in the Iron curtain. The real key to peace Between the free and the slave world is a Complete and total lifting of the Iron curtain. The reason it has been kept Down is because the Kremlin fears Contact with the outside world fears what will happen when its people become familiar with the Friendship the Progress the living standards of the West. So we should make this demand and keep on making it. Washington pipeline the mild Damp Winter has left the South s Cotton crop infested with Boll Weevil.

They Aren t As impressed As i thought they would be.

Never having thought of winning one i won t be disappointed. The Academy awards Are murder.

I did t think i looked Good enough or could be a romantic leading Man. All my life in English movies and on the stage in London i be played Ida Lupino on her future As a director i m facing a serious problem because i m a woman.

It Sells All in Point of View those Glamor shots Katy Jurado posed for before High noon will soon be turning up in Beer ads and the mexican fire Mac s window brought you a Pillow Washington. Catling Washington in the tur Moil of the time All our institutions have received heavy blows. The supreme court of the United states has been buffeted since 1933 by the winds of change blowing fiercely from every Quarter of the Compass. The Rosenberg Case illustrates once again the stresses and strains to which this human institution has been subjected. It reveals the inner controversy the depth of feeling among the nine men who refer to each other As the a phrase touched in latter times with heavy sarcasm. What it brings to the fore too is the Case of Justice William o. Doug Las whose action granting a stay of the execution brought the court Back into special term. The background is important. Two Daj s before Douglas acting alone As he had every right in Law to do stayed the execution the full court had considered the Rosenberg Case. The last of six appeals had been taken to Justice Robert h. Jackson who by geographical assignment pre sides Over the circuit court of appeals for new York. Jackson recommended that the full court hear Oral argument on the Appeal on the last Day of the regular term. Justices Harold Burton and Felix Frank Ball s agent is doing a Burn.

W those rumours about Kathryn Grayson s health won t die Down. Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis won t be lonely in Europe. There Are 23 people in their entourage to the tune of a transportation Bill which the boys Are paying. Furter agreed. Justice Hugo Black was in favor of a rehearing on the issues but since that was impossible he was willing to join with the other three in hearing the argument to Stop the exe cution at least temporarily. One Moro vote that of jus Tice Douglas would have made a majority of five and the argument would have been heard in the regular Way by the full court. The feeling Between Jackson and Douglas has been bitter Ever since Jackson failed to be appointed chief Justice. The official journal presents Douglas position As follows or. Justice Douglas would Grant a stay and hear the Case on the merits As he thinks the petition for certiorari and the petition for rehearing present substantial questions. But since the court has decided not to take the Case there would be no end served by hearing Oral argument on the motion for a stay. For the motion presents no new substantial question not presented by the petition for certiorari and by the petition for so Douglas cast the fifth vote against considering whether the execution should be held up. Then two Days later after most of the justices had left the City he granted the stay. This aroused the old animosities in the court. The feeling within the institution is that this is a new blow bringing Down doubt and ridicule weak ening the authority of a Tri Bunal already suffering from Dis sension within and division with out. Seeing those Black Robed men against the background of the towering Marble columns and the red velvet curtain one finds it hard to believe that prejudices and predilections Cut so deeply. But now and then this comes to the surface in unmistakable fashion. The concept of men dedicated to the Law More or less withdrawn from the controversies of Day to Day exist ence seems even As an Ideal to by Marquis Childs be discarded. Justice Douglas does not of course fit into that concept and to is is one reason for the feel ing toward him in the court. Whether he lacks the judicial temperament or whether he resists out of his own inner re Bellion he refuses to conform to the traditional pattern. He goes of to far places the moment the court Iran Afghanistan Tibet indo China. In 1950, again in 52 and once More in february of this year he applied for a visa to visit the soviet Union. He tells associates that he would not go if the visa were granted on the typical borscht circuit of Len Ingrad Moscow and Stalingrad. He wants to go to turkestan where he understands there is some of the finest Hunting i the world. Douglas writes for popular magazines and lectures for fees on his travels. His books which appear with remarkable regu Larity Are often on the Best seller lists. Both in his writings and his lectures he treats controversial issues of foreign Pok icy. One of his articles in life Magazine offended the iranian government which had extended him Many courtesies during his visit there. What makes this so ironic is that at least twice in the past eight years Douglas had a Chance to leave the and go into Active politics. After Harry tru Man became president and quarrelled with the late Harold Ickes who resigned As Secretary of the Interior Truman offered that Post to Douglas. Then in 1948 at the democratic Conven Tion the president telephoned Douglas at his Mountain Retreat in Oregon and offered him the vice presidency. Both times after some deliberation Douglas said no. The inner conflict within the court is taking place within the larger struggle with the communist conspiracy. It is a sad chapter in a grim history.

The cures were often considered Natur ally those recovered were in a better position to boast of their cures than those who did not. Actually nature was doubtless responsible both for the recoveries and the deaths. The fact that so Many of these patients lived was in spite of the treat ment rather than because of it. Nowadays there Are other cures which Are quite similar. Again Wishful thinking and the strength of the human body is usually responsible for recovery i those patients who do sur Vive. But a different Type of treat ment is sometimes referred to As a Miracle Many of the newer discoveries of Prepa rations like insulin for diabetes or penicillin have been referred to As Miracle drugs. Actually this is most unfortunate since there is nothing miraculous about them. The discovery of insulin for example was based on careful Laboratory studies and animal experiments in Many parts of the world. When it anally be came possible to use insulin i human a betes this Boon to humanity was the result not of the efforts of a single Genius but of Many investigators. It does not dim the great achievement of Banting who received the Nobel prize for the discovery of insulin to say that others had done much of the preliminary work. The same thing is True of penicillin Al though in that Case two groups of workers were primary responsible. The discovery of penicillin however was no Accident but rather the result of years of patient labor in the Laboratory by highly trained minds and skilled hands. Harmful hunches thus there Are two kinds of so called Miracle of them based on pure superstition which unfortunately is pushed on an unsuspecting Public usually in the Hope of financial gain the other is the result of hard mental work and Long continued observation.
