Martin is not, and never hus been, regarded as solemnly as Speaker Martin thinks proper. A good many months ago, Martin nctually went to one of tho loading editors in Boston to protest this unhappy state of affairs. Whatever other people might think, he said bluntly, he was a serious aspirant to tho presidency; nnd tho news- papers of his home state hiul better begin taking him as seriously as ho took himself. There Is something inevitably comic in the picture ot tho speaker rather nasally demanding, in so many words, to be taken seriously. It Is Umo, nono the less, to begin to bo serious about tho Martin candidacy If only because it has recently como close to wrecking the bipartisan foreign policy. MARTIN CONTROLS the House of Representatives more closely than any speaker In recent years, His lieutenants arc a group of other senior members, like Representative Allen and John Tuber, who like him belong to the extreme right of tho Republican party. These nro tho men who revived the ec- onomics of tho Harding era in their amendments ot the trade agree- ments act, and then cut the guts out of tho European recovery pro- gram. Tho most obvious motive of these moves (which they would cer- tainly not have made without Mar- tin's encouragement) was to try to nail tho Republican party colors to Mine Sinks Danish 150L This Remarkable Action picture was taken at Point Reyes, rodeo moment when it appeared a bull was about to go7i to death Lloyd Lippi, a contestant, but XJppl escaped with bruises because his flying hat attracted the bull's bull charged the hat.

K., 78 to 10 By Howard Dobson Washington House Repub- lican leaders stamped an emphatic "must" today on enactment of a peacetime draft law next week. Encouraged by the whopping 78- to-10 vote the Senate gave its se- lective service revival bill, House supporters were confident of send- ing a finished measure to President Truman before adjournment. Speaker Martin (B.-Mass.) told reporters the House bill will be called to the floor Tuesday or Wed- nesday, He predicted it will pass with only one day of debate. This would contrast with six days and three nights of Senate oratory. House Rules Chairman Leo E. Allen (R.-I11.) said his committee will meet' Monday to vote the House measure "up or down." The bfll has been awaiting rules com- mittee clearance since May 7. Runsc (or Two Years With adjournment tentatively set for a week from Saturday, the bill cannot be debated in the House unless the rules committee approves it. Ten Injured in Auto Crash Sturgeon Bay, per- sons were injured, two of them cri- tically, in a head-on automobile collision on highway 57 about 20 miles north of here last night.

Break in Dike Floods Airport at Portland Portland, flooding Columbia river broke through another dike on Portland's outskirts today and raced over a rich lowland area extending ten miles to the east. Doomed were the Portland airport, four golf and country duos, a lakeside resort and homes lor several thousand-persons. All residents were ordered evacuated days ago, but the shcrin s office feared some might have re- turned. The airport siren sounded a warn- ling when the break came in the early morning. Army engineers pulled out 'all troops and dike workers. The sheriff's office said the warnings would have given anyone in the area time to escape ahead of the flood. The break, as in previous breaches that flooded Vanport, the Portland meadows race track and another golf course, came in a side dike, not on for livestock food this foray of Martin s, which is _.ivcn in a less Blv -Is off to a much better start than a were not Hence shortly after the Senate voted in mid-afternoon yesterday, Martin called Allen to a. confer- Martin called Aen o-a co- ence.

But Governor James Duff of Penn- sylvania unfortunately belongs to the group desiring to draft Senator Arthur II. Vandenberg for the Re- publican nomination. NOT SO I.ONG AGO, Senator Vandenbcrg wrote n group of Yale students another of his letters de- clining to put himself forward ns a candidate. The letter was hardly published before Martin established contact with Duff, to point out that Vandonbcrg was not in the race, nncl to solicit his support for Martin, The plain truth is that Martin desperately wants to be nominated, knows he cannot be nominated ex- cept In tho event ot a- convention 4-Week Armed Truce Begins In Palestine Furthermore -wheat prospects turned, up enough during May j. urtnermore, wu v v dcpartment to indicate that this crop may be the country's sec- ond largest in history.

The Republican party convention is a meeting of the voluntary organ- ization of the G.O.P. Among other things it will decide whether to endorse candidates.

The Ohio Republican said "our gallivanting president" on his cur- rent western speaking tour is mak- ing "an. effort not only to condemn this congress, but to discredit the institution of Congress." In his prepared address at the Union league, the G.O.P. presidential candidate said Mr. Truman's attack on Congress "gives aid and comfort to all those who want to destroy representative government as do the communists, fascists and every be- liever in a totalitarian state."
