Today s Bible thought who shall separate us from the love of Christ shall tribulation or distress or persecution or famine. Or nakedness or peril or romans the times daily tonic look in. And see Christ s chosen Saint in Triumph Wear his Christ like Chain Jjo fear lest he should swerve or faint his life is Christ his death is defense the question of whether the armed Power of the United states is sufficient for its needs seems to be an unending argument. Apparently there Are differences of opinion among military men on the subject and for the Layman it is just a question of which set of experts one prefers to follow. It is unfortunate that like every other Public question of the present time this subject gets mixed up in politics and the opinion of Many people is not based on any real knowledge of the situation and its needs but rather on whether they Are pro administration or anti administration. In recent weeks we have heard speculation about possible tax cuts next year and a possible balancing of the budget. And mixed up with this was speculation about possible cuts in the appropriation for defense spending. Admiral Radford s statement on this should Clear up a lot of misunderstanding and at the same time cast a Little More doubt on the Chance of a balanced budget a tax Cut. If there is no curtailment of defense spending which is such a very Large part of the budget there can be Little Hope of a balanced budget. When we hear promises about a balanced budget and tax cuts we need to ask ourselves whether there is any Politi Cal motivation. And when we hear criticism of the administration we should ask ourselves the same thing. It should be obvious for instance that the remarks of sex president Truman were made from a political viewpoint. Since or. Truman is making a frankly political series of talks it follows that whatever he says must be taken by the listener or Reader with that fact in mind. It will help to keep things in proper perspective. There does not seem to be any reason to fear that we Are in danger of letting our guard Down. Ible reality the Story about the training of Ameri can boys to fit them to meet the sort of treatment they Iye Likely to gel if they become prisoners of War makes exceedingly disagreeable Reading. Although Pentagon officials deny some of the extremes which Are Given As part of the training there is enough to make it Clear that this is a realistic approach to an ugly reality. The stories of what the chinese reds have done to americans who fell into their hands and the brainwashing of the russian system have demonstrated that civilization has advanced to a Point where it makes savagery seem gentle. Ii is As if someone had actually solved the Riddle of How to separate the two natures of men and turn people into or. Hydes. It is a question whether any toughen ing process can fit men to meet such a situation because no training program can be carried to the breaking Point which the real experience will reach quickly. What it can do is to make the Soldier so conscious of what is in store for a Man captured that the and ency will be to fight to the death in the face of hopeless Odds rather than surrender. This May re sult in fewer met surrendering too easily this is part of the reason Lor the it will also increase the casualties. There is a tendency Here to follow the technique of the japanese who made Sui cide fighters out of their men not Only through religious Fervour but through fear by teaching them that they would be tortured if captured. The difference of course is that we Are not lying when we teach our boys that but the result can be the same. All of this gives added incentive to make efforts to prevent a major War. A that could be fought with no prisoners taken. They rated chinese wanted info nation i might and i have to Tell. I m not Froud of it. Hut i have to toll you they got what Jolin k. Arnold freed american air Man. Tom Mrna Maha editor s Drew Pearson is on Brief vacation his column is being written by members of his staff Washington John l. Lewis borrowed phrase from the past when he castigated the merger of the Al and Cio As a rope of however the United mine workers Boss had his Bushy eyebrows Radfred on the future in which John l. Hopes to Lead another labor movement. Many years ago labor s beloved Sam rompers warning against big Union trampling of the rights of Small unions in the american federation of labor declared if you destroy the voluntarism of Small unions you Are building n federation no stronger than a rope of voluntarism was a word Gompers liked. He used it often to stress the need for protecting the jurisdiction and autonomy of Little Craft unions. There is reason to believe that John l. Lewis is trying to emulate rompers founder of the Al. In More than words. For a Long time the miners Boss has cherished the idea of founding a new labor movement. The plight of Small unions in the Al Cio merger May be just the springboard he needs. There is also reason to believe that the republication National committee is taking More than a passing interest in Lewis s plans. Lewis who backed Willkie in 1940, has discussed the possibility of another Union group in recent meetings with a number of labor leaders. One of those with whom he has met is Guy Brown a Strong Republican and chief of the brotherhood of locomotive engineers. Small unions in peril aside from politics Al Cio Unity is bound to play into Lewis s hands. In the combining of rival unions of the two groups some toes will be stepped upon. Or. To be More exact some Cio unions will be gobbled up by Al counter parts and vice versa. It is Safe to assume that the big unions will do the stepping and the smaller ones will fill the upon role. In fact the merger Constitution leaves no area of doubt. The Constitution already drafted except for some minor changes to be made in december gives the new Al Cio executive Council arbitrary Powers to establish the sovereignty of merged unions. The executive Council to be composed of 29 from the Al and 10 from the Cio be heavily dominated by big Union Lead ers. In fairness to the drafters of the Constitution it can be argued that some unions must be sacrificed and that numerical strength is the fairest yardstick of supremacy. Otherwise there would be no Point in a merger if rival Al and Cio units continued to compete against each of her for Juris diction and membership in the new setup. Noncthelci.6, Are certain to develop though the top Bosses of both the Al and Cio Are taking extreme pains to prevent fireworks such As walkouts by rebelling unions at the Unity convention in december in new York City. Walkouts Likely both sides have urged recalcitrant not to nil up in new York but to save their walkout histrionics until later if they Are not satisfied with their lot in the new As John l Lewis aptly phrased it when the stresses and strains of amalgamation begin to hit Home. When the rebelling gets under was John l Lewis May find himself in some strange alliances James e. Carey. Cio vice president once was an ally of Lewis. In the Cro breakaway from the Al m 1937, but has been anti Lewis in recent years Carey s Union the Inkerl National Union of electrical workers will emerge triumphant Over the rival Al International brotherhood of electrical in the new and his follow might find it advisable to team up once with Lewis in a new labor movement. Carey has been keeping his own counsel await ing developments but Woodruff Randolph presi Dent of he Al International typographical Union the oldest trn Rte Union in the coun try has been sharply critical of the merger. Another outspoken critic has been George o Lynch Boss of the Al pattern makers Union founded in 1887, Only a year later than the found ing of the Al. Lynch has a unique reputation with washing Lon reporters Are accustomed to hearing you ran say this but Don t quote the Peppery pattern makers Boss Wel comes quotation on everything he says. Lynch Speaks mind Lynch is not at All enthusiastic about his Small Talon being absorbed by the Cio Auto workers or the Al machinists Union As is Likely to happen after the merger. Asked by this column if he would consider teaming up with John l. Lewis whom he has frequently in the oaf Lynch replied frankly i have always been Loyal to the Al. But if the Al goes out of existence As it will in de Cember. I la be free Lynch was equally Frank with Al Bosses at a recent executive Council meeting in Chicago. He told them As you know. I have never Jan in any love for John l. Lewis but whether you like it or not you Are driving the Small unions into an association with him by this merger. I can name five or six Al unions that would line up with Lewis today if he got rid or his arbitrariness and capriciousness and supned that anti communist oath. Nole Lewis is strongly anti communist but takes the position that the oath was rammed Down labor s Throat by the Taft ii Artley act. Which Lewis abhors. The Miner Boss also resents the idea that employers do not have to sign the oath capital Cartwheel Many thanks to Sam Kett Man. Athletic director of the Ferris Institute. Big rapids.

Dear sir As i was saying last week about that smiling at the not that. It was that smiling new look of Friendship that the rus Sian villains have put on and probably will put Over. I have something More to say about that co existence theory of get along with the but. Before i go further into that i will touch briefly on the Truman containment policy which was As simple As this As if your officials were saying to the villains now Don t misunderstand us. It s not that we begrudge you the lion s share which we have already Given just that we think it is enough and that you should be satisfied with it. And refrain from further aggression. That was put it in your nut Shell. However the Truman gang could t make it work so the Eisenhower administration decided or seems to have decided that the next Best we won t Light pm. Let s join pm but do it slyly and quietly. Now. That just about spells out Pecac club co existence for this administration. If our social minded experts can persuade the commies to forget their global ambitions and leave off the worst of their rough that they won t look like company too bad for you will see peaceful co existence such is they have in mind an accomplished fact. Our Intel nationalists Are merely insisting on Unity As to Choice of isms. In other words they Are in sisting and hoping Fiat the global gangsters will Settle Lor Fabian socialism in the interest of peace in our time. On the other hand. I can learn of no organized intention on the part of our Public officials to repudiate socialism and reach Lor the constitutional liberties we be already lost. Constitutional govern ment has a slim Chance for sur Vival so Lont us so Many people still believe that socialism is As Good As us looks. Domestic traitors and dupes can make socialism look mighty attractive and tempting in a country that capitalism has made Rich. In fact.

European Feather Beds and even the usual double mattress jobs encountered in american hotels Are too soft for him. Although historical guides Here Don t like to admit it liquor prices Are one of the biggest tourist attractions in the nation s capital. Tippers from Miles around come to take advantage of the Low Cost of Good booze. And most visitors find it hard to leave town without at least one souvenir bottle in their suitcase or a larger Supply in the car trunk. This is one of the Rea sons Why the yearly per capita consumption Here comes to about five Gallons which is roughly five times higher than the rest of the country. About 11 million persons pass through Washington during a says a spokesman of the distilled spirits Institute. It seems to be obvious that possibly a Good Deal More than half the liquor is sold to these White House aides usually be have themselves but the other afternoon four of them pulled off a stunt reminiscent of College prank sters on a football weekend. They were Ushers at the recent wedding of Pat priest daughter of Ivy Baker priest u. S. Treasurer.

Weddings and transfers have wiped out the group of five men who serve As social representatives for the Navy at the executive mansion. But they la be replaced before the White House party season gets under Way this fall and Winter. Mac s window by j. Meaux feb Lorit the in we heard much Ulk about big five.

There is an increased flow of blood through the blood vessels of the brain and this in creases the pressure on the hard Bony Skull. Certainly most of them Frel that any. Why this happens in some people and at some times is hard to out. There seem to be several reasons which can bring this about. Undoubtedly worry or emotional Strain brings on headache m Many people. While a headache can some times be traced to eyestrain sinus double or an upset stomach the emotional origin of Many head inches is the most important. A Man i knew about had a quarrel with his partner about twice a year and a Day later he would Al Nyp be kept Home by a severe headache.

However Many headaches Are considered to be of the migraine Type which appear to be partly hereditary and partly the result of the stress and Strain of modern life. Even Many of those which Are classified As migraine come of after a difficult conference it quarrel or something else which inter feres with the Calm life. A splitting headache often arrives at the most inconvenient times. Although a headache serves As one of the world s Best excuses for getting out of some engagement which one wants to avoid the real thing is exceedingly unpleasant. Out our Way
