EXTENSION OF PAY BOOSTS TO CIO SEAMEN AFL Settlement Near But CIO Joins in Maritime Walkout Washington IP The AFL swung a new verbal sledgeham mer against the governments wageprice stabilization setup

Dr Edwin G Boring of Harvard university will think you are afraid to face life Dr Boring who is coeditor of the American Journal of Psy chology believes there is a sound psychological reason why super stitious people insist on having unlucky days They are looking for an explanation of life he said They feel more secure if they can explain why they got hit on the head with a flower pot after walking under a ladder So they blame their mis fortune on bad luck Its an easy but not a very logical way out of their prolbems v The unluckiness of Friday the 13th has its origin Dr Boring believes in the Bible Friday was the day of the Last Supper and the number 13 refers to Christ and his 12 apostles He said that records of the National Safety council show the acci dent toll on Friday the 13th is ho greater than on any other average killed and 26600 injured As the best way of curing yourself of the Friday the 13th jitters Dr Boring suggests Just tear those pages right out of your calendar when

Break Off Ties With Great Britain By JOHN M HIGHTOWER Washington depart ment officials Friday disavowed any responsibility for Secretary of Commerce Wallaces speech on foreign policy thereby pointing up the possibility of a clearcut cabinet split between Wallace and Secretary of State Byrnes The extent and seriousness of such a development within Presi dent Trumans cabinet however may not be measured accurately until Byrnes personal reactions to the Wallace speech become known Wallace spoke in New York Thursday night after President Truman told a news conference that he approved the speech but that he considered it no departure from foreign policy under Byrnes Among diplomats and even state department officials however the conviction was that Wallace was calling in effort for a drastic re direction of U S policy to break off present close ties with Britain and recognize 2 great spheres of influence in the world one Rus sian the other American Voicing this thought Rep Cox DGa telegraphed President Truman that the worst possible thing that could have happened to the country is that you are re ported in the press as having ap proved the Wallacespeech of yes terday It cuts the ground from be neath Secretary Byrnes and frightens America the Georgian declared In a telegram made pub lic 3t the capital At the state department Friday top officials told reporters the Wallace speech was not cleared by the governments foreign pol icy branch even though it was delivered by a cabinet member after approval by the president One official said that the first copies to reach the department were press advances and that the ranking department officer in Washington Undersecretary Clay ton first saw the text after press distribution These officials also expressed interest in the fact that in actual delivery Wallace dropped whole sentences from his prepared text including language admonishing Russia to stop conniving against us and stop teaching that com munism by force if necessary must triumph ultimately over democratic capitalism Diplomats examining the text noted 3 points which they con sidered to be at variance with current practices and lines of de velopment of American diplo macy 1 While Byrnes has repeatedly and emphatically disavowed the existence of any AngloAmerican bloc in dealing with Kussia Lon don and Washington have fol lowed almost completely parallel policies in dealing with political issues in eastern Europe and the eastern Mediterranean area The most recent major decision by both was to oppose any Russian military expansion into the Dar danelles Whether it was this kind of parallel action which Wallace had in mind calling for an American foreign policy independent of the British imperialistic policy he did not say but that was the way diplomatic informants looked at it 2 The present basic American attitude toward all major issues with Russia has been described for months at the state depart ment as one of an absolute re fusal to yield when either Ameri can principles or interests are in volved The state department dislikes having this designated as a get tough with Russia policy but that is one way it has been popu larly described And that is what diplomatic officials believe Wal lace was talking about when he said that a get tough policy simply would not work 3 Since Secretary of State Hulls visit to Moscow in the fall of 1943 American policy in the main has opposed the division of the world into spheres of influ ence One of the latest statements to that effect was made by Byrnes when he returned from the meeting of the foreign minis ters at Paris last May Wallace however declared that the United States should recog nize that we have no more busi ness in the political affairs of east ern Europe than Russia has in the affairs of Latin America western Europe and the United States ;
