Tva and politics that the Tva is wholly divorced from politics is something that Only the very innocent would believe. But that it is reasonably free from politics and less subject to political i nagging than most agencies of government is evident enough. Certainly everyone whether he believes that Tva was a mistake in the first place or thinks it is the Best thing that Ever happened believes the author Ity should be operated As much As pos sible like a business apart from politics and not used As a Fine place to put de serving friends of the party. It seems to us therefore that the pres ent administration would do Well to leave Gordon Clapp As executive director of the to remove him and replace him with another strictly on the grounds of political recommendation would simply be to serve notice that this administration is ready to accept the Tva on a political basis. It is True that any administration has a right to have men in policy making positions who have the administration s viewpoint but the Tva director is an administrative officer not a policymaker. The new administration is not changing the generally accepted policies of Tva. It opposed expansion but there is no idea of curtailing or Ham stringing the opera Tion. It is not in accordance with facts to hold the administration responsible for the ideas of those who advocate sell ing or liquidating Tva. Aside from the creeping socialism crack the president made Many references to Tva during his Campaign to the effect that lie had no idea of disrupting it. accepted it As a fact recognized value. Now if there is a change of management on what is bound to look like political grounds that is go ing to make it look like the president is not living up to his promises in the eyes of Many people. There has been no question of mis management of Tva under or. Clapp. No charges have been made against him. There seems to be no reason for a change unless politics is a reason. The creep speaking of the charge of creeping socialism so much uproar was made Over those words that the president probably wishes he never said them and attempts Are made to explain them. Is it a Good descriptive phrase the nationalization of natural re sources and the major industries is a part of the program of socialism. No one would deny that. It was proven in England and any socialist will Tell you that is accepted socialist doctrine. So if the government took Over the transportation Industry that would be a step toward socialism. If it took Over the steel and Coal industries that would be a step toward socialism. If it took Over the entire Power Industry that would be a step toward socialism. That the people who put through the idea of the Tva were largely advocates of Public ownership of Power is generally understood. We know that George nor Ris was a believer in the principle that the people owned the natural resources very definitely he believed that the development of Power should be a govern ment business which should not be left to private Industry. Today it is a moral certainty that a great Many new Deal democrats Are openly or secretly in favor of the government gradually taking Over the entire Power Industry in this coun try. They favor this step toward social ism. That the development of Tva is a first in the direction of that objective is As Plain As the nose on Jimmy Durante s face. It is held up As a fore runner of other such developments. There is the push for the Missouri Val Ley authority. Tva was the beginning. Maybe socialism is Good for the coun try. Maybe nationalization of natural resources is Good. Maybe Complete governmental ownership of Power is Good. Good or bad it is socialistic and the Tva development is a creep or a crawl in that direction. However we have the Tva and As great Britain found out it is harder to unsocial ize than to socialize. We have to be practical and the practical thing is socialistic or not we need to make Tva work As efficiently and As non politically As possible. By Drew Pearson you Trace the attacks of senator Mccarthy against most of the major targets he has aimed at you will invariably detect an underlying motive of motive reminiscent of totalitarian tactics in Europe before the War. Mccarthy attacked senators Tydings of Maryland and Benton of Connecticut because one questioned his charge of 205 communists in the state department the other introduced a Resolution asking for a probe of Mccarthy. Mccarthy now seeks to defeat sen. Mar Garet Chase Smith in Maine because she initiated the declaration of conscience which reflected on him. And of course the running feud with Secretary of the army Stevens came after Stevens refused to admit that fort Monmouth was riddled with communists. Bui the most Brazen recent Case of Mccarthy vindictiveness was against the former assistant Secretary of War John j. Mccloy now head of the Bank which is not exactly a communist institution. Mccloy has been out of government Lor some years after a distinguished career not Only in the War department but As head of the world Bank and As High commissioner to Germany. Nevertheless out of the Clear Blue the senator from Wisconsin suddenly accused Mccloy of destroying records of communists in the u. S army. The charge was so untrue that Mccarthy had to retract it publicly. But he still accused Mccloy of writing a wartime army order which. Mccarthy claimed permitted communists to be commissioned in the u. S. Army. Reasons for revenge but while the Public has read of Mccarthy s attack on Mccloy they Don t know the motives behind that attack. Back to a famous speech made by president Eisenhower at Dartmouth last Spring in which the presi Dent condemned Book burning. Mccarthy bit Terly resented that aimed at him. And since the speech was extemporaneous Mccarthy was determined to find out who had inspired it even sent an investigator All the Way to Hanover n. H., to see who and what the inspiration was. The inspiration he found was or. Mccloy actually the inspiration was accidental. Here is what happened. Mccloy too was receiving an honorary degree from Dartmouth and before the ceremonies was talking to y. Attorney Joseph Proskauer about the books that had been burned at u. S. Information libraries abroad at the demand of Sena Tor Mccarthy. Catching Only a fragment of the Conversa Tion president Eisenhower leaned Forward and asked what s this what s i was telling about the burning of state Denny Lent books Mccloy replied. Of they re not burning Ike inter posed. I m afraid they Are. Or. My cloy replied. I have the he then went on to Tell the president How he As an american official in Germany knew firsthand the tremendous achievement of Stulp department libraries. Eighteen million germans read those books in 1952 Mccloy explained. Probably As Many germans studied the principles of our founding fathers As did americans thanks to those books. And the value of those books was that they were uncensored. They criticized you and me and Dean Acheson and anyone else in govern ment. The germans knew they were uncensored and that was Why they streamed into our libraries leaving the houses of Kultur empty. These Worp books sent to american boys right after the War. Books which their parents and friends wanted them to read. There was nothing subversive about these Eisenhower is moved president Eisenhower listened intently. Then obviously moved he delivered Impromptu the stirring Dartmouth speech on Book Burn ing. It electrified the nation and was hailed by the american press As Ike s first crack Down on Mccarthy. Mccarthy was so furious that next Day he pulled wires at the White House to keep the speech from being broadcast Over the voice of America and persuaded the president to Issue a statement that the speech was meant As no reflection on him. Nevertheless he deeply resented it. And when word came Back from his investigator in Dartmouth regarding the happenstance by which Mccloy had inspired the speech. Mccarthy actually went to the unusual length d investigating everything Mccloy did. sent two investigators to Germany to dig into my cloy s records As High commissioner. There they even probed the records of the car Pool to see How Many times mrs. Mccloy her official limousine to buy groceries. But nothing damaging turned up. Stymied Mccarthy then launched accusation against Mccloy for allegedly destroy ing records on communists inside the War department. And when this Boom ranged As untrue the persistent and revengeful senator from Wisconsin claimed that Mccloy had arranged for commissions to be Given to Ameri can communists during the War. Actually Mccloy had argued inside the Wai department that japanese americans Ger Man americans members of the fascist Silver shirts and american communists All should be allowed to fight for their country if they were found to be Loyal and that the test should be not membership in one of these groups or organizations but individual loyalty to u. S. A. argued first that it was unfair to other americans to let these men off from combat duty second that if they showed unquestioned loyalty to their country they should have the same Chance in the army As anyone else. As a result it was finally decided to Send japanese american troops to the european theatre where they would not be called upon to fight against a japanese enemy and to Send German americans and communist vet Erans of the Spanish civil War to the Pacific where they would not fight against europeans. The decision resulted in some of the finest citations for heroism going to some of these men including the american japanese 442nd go for broke regiment. The decision incidentally was not Mccloy s alone but was concurred in by the general staff and Secretary of War Henry l. Stimson a distinguished Patriot who also served As Secretary of War in the Cabinet of Herbert Hoover. Definition of a filibuster newsmen called Mississippi sen.

One such question came from a worried Mother who writes that she has an eight year old daughter who is about the same size As a 10 or 11-year-old. Both and Mother she writes Are of medium build and the families Are Noi notably Large. The girl is neither overweight nor underweight and seems Normal in every Way except her size. Sometimes questions come in concerning underside particularly in boys and this causes an equal amount of distress. Growth and development in children has had a Good Deal of study but there is still consid Erable difference of opinion. What should be said at the Start however is that As yet there is no special injection or exercise or food which can be definitely recommended either to Speed or slow the growth of children. Furthermore it should be understood that the rate of growth varies from one youngster to an other and it does not proceed at the same rate of Speed All the time in any growing child. It is quite Likely therefore that the eight year old girl mentioned at the beginning of this column will grow less rapidly in the next few years and her contemporaries will catch up to her though this cannot be guaranteed. It appears that there is a More or less Normal pattern of growth for each child. Several methods have been proposed for measuring this but there is no com plete agreement As to what method is the Best though in the United slats a device known is the wet Grid has been used extensively and is favored by Many. There Are Many things which influence growth. To some extent size runs in families if the parents Are unusually tall the children Are Likely to be above average in this respect . Diet undoubtedly plays a part prob ably in height As Well As weight. Climate May have something to do with the picture also. Sex is a Factor boys on the average when fully grown Are taller and heavier than girls though around 11 or 12 years old girls Are often bigger than boys of the same age. An important Factor which influences growth has been traced to a tiny gland called the pituitary which lies at the base of he brain. The front or Anterior part of this gland manufactures hormone which greatly influences growth in some cases it produces too much of this Hor Mone with the result that the individual develops into a human giant one of whom has been reported to stand just Over nine feet High and weighs nearly 400 pounds. If too Little of the hormone s produced the growth May be correspondingly slump of out our Way kwc5w what they Cej Theyson of if thru i p Omav got out of this pump they e up with Atie am rubber heels the tire Reg ular the re s Al ways some one Pom be r thaw you passim that guv wow.
