True, the town will quiet down a litUe'. No more laws can be pass- ed until Congress comes back in- to session again. Until then there can be no more speeches or de- bates on the floors of house and senate.

For Instance, the House armed services committee was continuing today its hearings on the useful ness of the B-36 bomber. In spite of the congressional shut down, a heavy volume of news out of Washington probably will continue. Other News Overlooked It always seems that way when Congress goes home. That's be- cause the rest of the government still will be doing business.

The usually mild-spoken Bradley, war hero and chairman of the, joint chiefs of staff, blasted awayj bitterly at the Navy yesterday for! not accepting the decisions of top! military authority established, un- der the unification law. He used acid language, although in calm tones, in speaking of "open rebellion" and declaring that the public airing of Navy grievances lad done "infinite harm" to na- tional security. Although Congress packed up and went home last night, most, members of the committee stayed on to finish up the sensation-pack ed hearing, now more than two weeks old. Chairman Vinson (D.-Ga.) has called General George C. Marshall wartime chief of staff and Genera' Mark Clark, chief of Army grounc forces, for tomorrow.

It was one of the strongest public statements ever issued by the mild-mannered general. He referred scornfully to "self appointed" martyrs, and he called for "some retraction" of Navy in- sinuations and allegations against the Joint chiefs of staff. And, biting off his words grimly, he called on the armed services to stop bickering and get on with the job at very big andi very important job."

Republican-Herald photos Over-Specialization In Teachers Scored Auditorium Jammed At Senior High for Opening Session By Adolph Brcmer Fifteen hundred school adminis- trators and teachers from South- eastern Minnesota today began a two-day stint of speeches here. Like prize pupils, most of them were there on a. and all of them sat quietly and at- tentively during the first two of a series of major talks. Keynoter James Eldridge, lecturer for the American Association of the United Nations, challenged them to build a knowledge "of the world as it is." He told the teachers, occupying every seat in the Senior High school auditorium, how the world has changed and how Americans, as a result, should change in their at- titudes. In a 40-minute talk the Chicago man declared: 1. Americans must realize that a bulwark of their safety and no longer a European and world power. 2. Americans must realize that their country has a stake in Europe. The stake Is this conn- try's freedom and safety. 3. Americans most realize that what we have called the mi- nority peoples of the world are actually in the majority and that they may well decide the fate of the world. 4. Americans must realize that the problem of Russia, is an old one, not a new one. Americana most relax and not try to solve this problem "by Christmas."
