Leave On Whaling
Trip To Antarctic
Aboard the mother ship of the
German whaling fleet that sail-
ed this morning from Balboa for
the Antarctic were two Panama-
nians representatives, Antonio
Isaza and Adolfo Quelquejeu.
The men were named by the
Panamanian government to ac-
company the whaling fleet under
the provisions of the interna-
tional convention on whale fish-
ing which stipulates that each
government which sends ships
to whaling grounds must also
send two representatives.
The ships are registered under
the Panamanian and Honduran
Composed of 12 whale catchers
and the 10,448-ton mother ship
the Olympic Challenger, the
whaling fleet will be away about
eight months.
Although German nationals
are not permitted to go ashore
here, ten crewmen were appreh-
ended in Coln over the week-
end by the Panam police and
returned to their ships after they
had taken a short shore liberty.
Other developments in the Ko-
rean theater included:

The "Supreme Military Coun-

against President Peron's gov-

The council had been expect-

accused officers face a possible

Snooping Women Wanted
For Detective Training
Wanted snooping women.
An expert says women make bet-
ter-than-average detectives, yet
lew women go into the field.
There are a surprising number
of advertisements in the women's
help wanted columns these days
that read, "detectives wanted."
but there aren't enough trained
women detectives around to an-
swer them.
There are several reasons for
this, according to mild-manner-
ed Dr. Paul J. Conroy. executive
director of the New York Instit-
ute of Criminology, one of the
two schools in the country li-
censed to teach scientific invest-
igation in all its branches.
"First," said the doctor, "the
general public doesn't realize the
constantly increasing need that
exists for women skilled in in-
vestigation "
"Second," he added, "It's not
easy to become an investigator.
Detectives get their training In
federal government service, a
sheriff's office, or a city police
department. You don't find many
women in those fields."
"And third," he admitted,
"many women think of private
Investigation work as involving

Dr. Conroy went on to point
out that today Investigation In
one form or another enters Into
nearly every phase of business.
Industry, or government, and
most of It is active but not dang-
erous work.
He said, "almost every msur-

ance and finance company now
employs operatives to investigate
claims, character and credit ref-
erences. There are investigative
jobs in hotels, department stores,
chain stores and other sales or-
ganizations. And of course in de-
fense plants, government agen-
cies and the CID."
"Women," said Dr. Conroy,
especially are needed... women
of all sizes, ages and types." He
said the only requirements are
that the woman be Intelligent
industrious and serious about
the work. And Judging by the re-
cords made by women in his own
school, Dr. conroy is convinced
that women make better than
average detectives. He said that
out of the 360 students who have
attended the school since Its in-
ception two years ago. only five
have been women, but.they all
have ranked high in theory of
detection, and practice.
Dr. Conroy said women espe-
cially are needed to serve as in-
vestigators In factories, screen-
ing defense workers. They're
particularly suited too for cases
that call for shadowing other
women, and in cases where
plants should be waitresses or
the kind of glamor girl who can
strike up an acquaintance with
a man in a nightclub.
Dr. Conroy estimated that
there probably are between 25.000
and 30,0000 Jobs open now for
women detectives throughout the
country, and manv of those Jobs
will go begging for some time
for qualified personnel. Starting
salaries, he said, run between $50
and $60 a week. And he pointed
out. "Many women who start as
detectives in stores, hotels or in-
surance companies, eventually
find managerial positions with
the firm."

On His RFC Loan Transactions
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2.(UP)The Republic-
an Party's National Executive Committee gave a
.unanimous vote of confidence yesterday to GOP
Chairman Guy George Gabrielson in connection with
his dealings with the RFC.
The vote was taken after Gabrielson himself
brought up the question of his RFC dealings at the
start of a Republican conference ,of eastern and
southern party leaders.
He is president and legal counsel of Carthage
Hydrocol, Inc., which borrowed $18,500,000 from
the RFC to make high octane gasoline from natural

Gabrielson told the executive
committee he used no influence
or corrupt methods In obtaining
the RFC loan for Carthage Hy-

business deal made in good faith
and on good business principles.

by Sen. Clyde- R. Hoey, D., N.C.,

Boyle is accused of receiving
$8.000 from the St. Louis orintng

Both Boyle and Gabrielson have
spurned demands that they re-
sign and President Truman has

North's bidding in today's hand
looked more scientific l/ian it
really was. He bid two clubs (the
Stayman Convention) to find out
whether or not South had a bid-
dable major suit. When South
properly showed the hearts,
North raised to game in that
This was all pure moonshine.
Since North had 4-3-3-3 distri-
bution he could expect no ad-
vantage from bidding a fitting
trump suit. He should have been
perfectly happy with a notrump
contract. A jump to three no-
trump was North's best response
to the opening bid.
At three no-trump South would
have no problems. He would need
a simple diamond finesse to make
his contract. The finesse would
succeed, and that would be that.
At four hearts. Ufe was not so
simple. South needed either a
good break in clubs or a very
good break in diamonds. What's
more, he had to play the hand
very carefully to take advantage
of whatever good fortune might
come his way.

Strongly Linked With Japan
The Habomai Islands and
Stiikotan, mentioned as possible
bones of contention in eventual
treaty negotiations between Rus-
sia and Japan, consist of half a
dozen Islands and numerous Is-
lets, rocks, and shoals lyinjr in
a 0-mile chain off northeastern-
most Japan.
Soviet forces have occupied
these land spots since shortly
after VJ-day (1045) according to
reports. In garrisoning them,
Russia Is seen to hold that they
are part -of the '730-mile-long
Kuril (Chlshima) Islands chain
granted to Russia at the Yalta
conference in 1945. ,
Japan cites geology as well- as
history to show that the Habo-
mais and Shikotan are a short
extension of. the Nemuro Penin-
sula and not part of the Kurils.
The Nemuro Peninsula is the
eastern land tip of Hokkaido,
northern of Japan's main islands,

The six islands line up
roughly parallel to and some
30 miles southeast of Kuna-
shlri, southernmost large is-
land of the long Kuril chain.
Lying partly within eyeshot of
Hokkaido, they are exposed sum-
mits of the same ancient ridge
as the Nemuro Peninsula, the
Japanese point out, while the
lofty Kurils are of much later
formation. And in shifts of the
past century involving the Kur-
ils, Russia has not before ques-
tioned Japan's right to the Habo-
mais and Shikotan.

About two-fifths of the kombu,
a seaweed of major Importance
in Japanese diet, is harvested in
this off-Nemuro chain. Fisher-
men flock from the Hokkaido
towns in season, swelling the is-'
lands' normal 5,000 population.
8hikotan, with 60 square miles,
has double the total area of the
five Habomais. It stands alone as
chain, separated from Taraku, Its
nearest neighbor, by a channel
14 miles wide. Roughly a rect-
angle 15 miles long by five miles
in width, Shikotan Is the only
hilly island, having heights near
each end of 1,200 feet.
Shakotan, on a bay Indenting

dozen fishing villages. The 800
island residents .of a decade ago

remnant of Alnus, a primitive

The complete chain is some-
times called the Shikotan Ar-

B.H.S. Notes
By Ann Morrill
B H S. really has spirit this year. We have, also an '"AJ1-
i.ar" team. One of the best. Saturday night the Red and White
piled onto the train to go to Cristobal to the Second t??,
jamboree. Juliene Page, Norlne Dillman. Elki Altman and Shirley
Hlclcev were just a lew that were scattered about singing. The
B" Club boys were ushers, Leon Herring, Jerry Halman and
Raymond Davidson helped keep order; as If It were necessary.
What should welcome us at Mount Hope, but a good rain, wet,
but happv. we were ready lor the big Jamboree. ,
First of all, the three teams lined up, side-by-side, with the
Cheerleaders in Uont. and the lovely Queens. Our Queen, Marie
De Bella, drew the lucky card so Balboa and Cristobal were the
iirst to play. First we had the lootball relay. Dick Ostrea, Jimmy
May Jerry Fox and Ted Norris lead our group to a quick victory.
Tnen the big game! Balboa and Cristobal fought a hard battle
lo end in a zero tie. Next time, team, we will win.
Between games were punting and kicking, trying; for extra
points, and the passing contests. When we played Junior College.
the score was 8-0. in our favor. Mark McKee caught a fumoie
to one of the plays that made the fans stand up and cheer.
Bob Peacher, Clair Qodby, Fred Cotton and Ray Nlcklsher were
lust a few of our great football players that made us proud
lo cheer for the Red and White. Even though Cristobal won the
trophy Balboa made a mighty fine showing and gave us some
"exciting games to watch. Yea. Balboa! Team, Team, Team!
Our eight cheerleaders looked cute In their Red and White
shorts and white t-shirts. They led us In cheers even though it
was raining. Coila Geodin. Beth Lockridge. Marilyn Bevlngton.
Joyce Oardner. Tibby Nolan, Shirley Karst. Ann Gorman, and
Arden Cooke made up one of the finest cheerleader groups Bal-
boa ever had. Our cute Pep Squad members cheered loud and
StroiiR. Judy McCoy. Mary Jo Allen, Jane Madison, Shirley Zemer
and Nira Reyes cheered our team on.
On the train coming home there were groups singing and
others just talking. Among others we saw Henry Cruz and Elaine
-lark, Noble Holiday and Barbara Gordon. Ted Norris and Nancy
"Ladd. Of course, there was the crowd at the MESS HALL after
Jv.e got home. BUI Riley. Dick Dillman and 8am Maphls were
some of the B. H. S'ers eating at Midnight. And the Red Door
vas open for dancing. Yes, Saturday was a wondreful night.
Friday night, Ann West gave a party for two popular
J B. H. S'ers on their "First Going-Steady Anniversary." Who
* were they? That w*ld be telling sorry! There were lots

are Frank Robinson, president; Louis Tremblay, vice-president;
Barbara Ely, secretary, and Richard Edwards as treasurer. For
the sophomore class the officers are as follows: Gerard Welch,
president; Alexander McKeown, vice-president; Mary Dzevaltaus-

Motion picture stars no longer
receive the huge piles of fan mail
which once used to swamp them,
and Ray Mllland. for one, thinks
it Is a good thing.
"Although they nut up a tre-
mendous howl, I think It's true
that most fan clubs have far less
than 1000 members, often less
than 100," says the handsome
Mllland. "Truth of the matter Is
that often the most loyal fans
never Join a cluband the Join-
ers Join a half a dozen."
Mllland says a more discern-

placing this old-time type of
"Today they support you be-
cause they think you can act or
sing or dance well," Mllland says,
"and not because you have a cute
upturned nose or curly locks.
"I think it's a healthy sign."
Mllland co-stars with a cat In
his newest film, "Rhubarb," and
he reports the cat received more
than 1500 letters while the pic-
ture was in production.
"That's almost as many as I
got," the actor says.
Mllland said he has no inten-
tion of belittling the adult, serio-
us fan.
"He gives the actor a rare and
highly Important contact with
the public." he says. "If a fan
really wants to help a star, hell
offer candid criticism and ad-
vice. This is the only way an act-
or can discover how his audience
really feels.
"The trouble with too many
fans Is that they're not fans at
all. They Ye autograph seekers or
hero worshipers."
Mllland says his fan mail has
another tangible value. He is an
avid stamp collector. He started
collecting when he first began
getting fan mail 14 years ago and
now has albums filled with thou-
sands of covers from fan mall

News item with a Dallas, Tex-
as, date line: "A husband's plea
that his wife be rationed to one
comic book dally because they
interfered with her household
duties has been denied by Peace
Justice Bill Rlchberg."
Reading further in the story,
you find the wife's reply to the
husband's charge: That she
needed to read comic books to re-
Her reply may sound absurd to
women who find their relaxation
in more intellectual or worth-
while pursuits.
But who is to say how anybo-
dy else should get relaxation
even a husband or a Judge?
Plenty of women fail to under-
stand how their husband's get re-
laxation from sitting in a boat in
the broiling sun hour after hour
while the fish refuse to bite, or
crouching in a blind hoping to
get a shot at a few ducks, or
trudging after a golf ball when
its too hot to mow the lawn.
. And plenty of men can't figure
out why a woman likes to get a-
way from It all by spending a day
shopping, or an afternoon at a
beauty salon or at a bridge table,
or by going to meetings.
But that doesn't mean those
pursuits aren't relaxing to the
ones who choose them.
' So If the wife finds comic books
relaxing, that is her business.
Husbands and wives tend to be'
far too critical of each other
when It comes to how the other
likes to spend-leisure time.
The best rule for husbands and
wives is to let each choose his or
her own means of relaxation and
to regard the choice with a tol-
erant eye.
What sounds like a stupid
waste of time to one soouse may
well be perfect relaxation for the

Canal Zone Scouts
Adopt Western Ways
In Recruiting Drive
The Boy Scouts of America In
the Canal Zone have gone West-
ern. Until the end of the year
while Its "National Round-Up" Is
in progress. Its ordinary termin-
ology will be replaced by the lan-
guage of the great open spaces.
The round-up is aimed not on-
ly to get all units into high gear
after the summer break in week-
ly meetings, but aleo to bring
Scouting to additional thousands
of boys who want It.
For the duration of the round-
up, each Cub Scout Pack, Scout
Troop and Explorer Unit will be
known as a "ranch;" its Unit
leader known aa the "ranch
foreman;" the boy leaders aa
"ranch top hands" and the boy
members as "cowhands."
Plans for the participation In
the National Round-Up by mem-
bers of the Canal Zone Council
were announced by W. R. Price,
who U President of the Council.
The two Districts of the Canal
Zone Council will be known as
The "range bosses" will be Dis-
trict Chairmen, R. R. Arnold of
Cristobal and E. L. Payne of Bal-
The range foremen will be Dis-
trict Commissioners R. M. Jones
of Cocoli; V. D. Young of Gatun .
Helping. them will be the
"range wrangler," Scout Execu-
tive. John R. Barr.
Members of the Commissioners
Staff will be the "range riders."
The principal object of the
round-up is to corral the "mav-
ericks," bbys not yet Cub Scouts,
Boy Scouts and Explorara and to
bring back to the "ranch" or
unit, members who recently drop-
ped out, to be called "strays."
The Canal Zone Council has
a total of 540 boys enrolled in 31
Units. By Dec. 31 next, it expects
to have a membership of 825 boys
in 35 Units.

The U.8. Communist Party la
falling apart and Its leaders
hunting cover, an authoritative
source discloser] today.
The statement was based upon
>a roundup of the party's activi-
ties In recent weeks, especially
since the Supreme Court's June
rullnr that its il top leaders en-
gaged In a conspiracy to advo-
cate overthrow of the govern*
ment by force.
The survey showed the party la
broke, Its leadership done for or
demoralized, its "brains" tied up
trying to d.-fend court cases, and
Its rank and file so confused the
members are pulling out.
The FBI has said nothing of-
ficially. But everyone here agrees
the FBI's activity has brought
about what Is coing on now.
Two FBI angles hit the party
One was the fact tnat the dis-
appearance of eight leaders
sparked a national FBI manhunt
which led aeentt against the
party on a scale not hitherto
The other was the disclosure
the FBI had informants planted
Inside the party.
Here. In brief, is the plight of
the Communist Party shown by
the survey:
Flane*sIt cannot raise funda
like it used to and those It gets
go to the defense of 67 leaders
convicted or facing trial. Nstlon-
al headquarters have moved from
38 East 12th 8t., New York City,
to a drab but cheaper alte at
West 188th Street. In many ci-
ties, offices are eloaed or moved,
m Denver, the party loat its
Shonenon-payment of bills. A
rive in April to get $374,8B5 rea-
lised only $208.000.
Membership FBI Chief J. Ed-
Ssr Hoover said the membership
as declined to 37,000 compared
with a claim of 74,000 In 1847. In
1842, it was figured the Commu-
nists Influenced 38 National la-
bor unions. That la now placed at
eight. Membership cards are no
more. Meetings are under cover,
never held twice in the same
Propaganda Thee Daily
Worker is down to eight pages
daily, up to 10 cents a copy. Its
circulation of 17,000 in 1MB U
down to 12,000 and still falling.
The monthly Marxist publication,
Political Affairs, has been cut in
sise snd may be foreed to close
for lsck of fundsIt won't tske
orders on credit spy longer. A
coast-to-coast chain of book
stores la all but gone.
Leadership The National
Board is no longer functioning
because seven members are serv-
ing prison terms and four others
are fugitives. The alternate na-
tional committee of nine selected
in 1860 Is having a hard time be-
cause seven were Indicted June
30. The survey shows the FBI
moves have disrupted 70 per cent
of the secondary leadership.
Coversome of the party la go-
ing comic opera. One leader re-
cently -went around with black
hair one day and white the next,
trying to disguise himself. Mus-
taches have been shaved. Some
have left families and taken up
with new women trying to throw
off pursuit.
When four of the leaders fail-
ed to show up to begin prison
terms and four others being
sought later evaded arrest, the
FBI went Into the matter with
the same type of checking fol-
lowed by the past where the crime
underworld was the target.
This slowed the party's activi-
ties and began drying up Its
sources of money.
The depleted treasury and
failures of money drives has
forced more frequent and larger
demanda on Individual members,
giving rise to rank and file re-
These funds now going to de-
fense of the leaders were former-
ly used for the party's subver-
sive work-

bers of future clssses.

On Trial For Arms
Smuggling From US
MOBILE. Als., Oct. 2 (UP)
A Honduran seaman, who has
already served a year for eons-
plrlne to tmuisle arms and am-
munition from a Mobile atore
for resale In South America at
a profit was the principal gov-
ernment witness at the opening
of the Federal arms smuggling
trial of a Mobile firm and two
Named in the Indictments
were Max Rlpps, manaaer of the
J. W. Webber and Co., Max Brill,
a $60-a-week clerk, and the Web-
er firm.
Assistant District Attorney Wil-
liam Cowan said the alleged
transactions violated the 1148
neutrality act prohibiting export
of arma and ammunition with-
out an export license. The law
provides for fines up to $10.000
and imprisonment up to two
years for violations.
Defense Attorneys In opening
statements contended that the
store sold the arms to the aca-
man, Walter Morales, with/the
full knowledge and consent of
the government and that no law
was violated.
Morales said that Rlpps and
Brill knew he was taking the
anna out of the country and that
they had offered to sell him aa
much as he needed.
The witness did not say where
in South America he sold the

planned to Introduce correspon-
dent between the defendants

The discovery that addition of

has aroused widespread public

Is not known. It is generally be-

One thing la ear tain: fluorida-

of the few findings in dental de-

Most dental scientists agree

to form acids which eat into the
tooth structure.

dieticians advise parents and

Panama American
Why U it that American Consulates have a reputation through-
out Latin America, and particularly here In Panama, for a rude,
patronising and uncooperative attitude while the British, on the
contrary, are trained In courtesy and efficlenoy?
Tiie United States is spending a lot o time, money and ef-
fort on the Point Pour Program to make the Latins like us. There
' are. I understand, twenty-six full time V. 8. Government expert
attached to the American Embassy in Panama In connection with
this now.
It would be a great boon to Americans here, travelers and
businessmen who also represent the united States ,abroad and
whose taxes pay Government salaries, if there were a Point Five
Program making a point to instruct u. 8. consular employes in
courtesy and efficiency.

Dear Sir:
Referring to the Army wife in Oulick who didn't think it
was fair, that out of three applicants for a job, one should go
specially, recommended, and the other two Just with their ap-
plications, it is my unfortunate duty to advise her that it is
S.O.P. i Standard Operating Procedure) with the Army civilian
personnel offices, and only one of innumerable vices, a very small
small vice at that. She should come over her* to the Pacific
Side and see how the Jobs are saved for the "fortunate" in-
Just two weeks ago.-a young girl. 32, previous experience
about one year of typing in Transp section, as a GS-2 and lust
graduated from college, get off the plane and stepped into a
G8-S Transportation 8pecialista Job. the Job will soon go to a
Qs-7. There are least four other people in that office, with
many more years of experience and highly qualified. But this
girl knows the brass.....
You have only to look around the various Army offices where
the old hags are stuck away as GS-2 or GS-S for' seven or more
years to realize what the S.O.P. Is. This la Just plain old human
nature, but it's not the best way to have an efficient and satis-
fied staff.
At least with The Panama Canal Company vou have the
anticipation of being able to look ahead to something better:
they give their present force a chance at transfers and promo-
tions. The Army sticks you in a Job and forgets about you for
the rest of your life. True, the Panama Canal adheres strictly
to civil Service Regulations, aa doei the Navy, but the Army has
no need for such foolishness.
Lady, if you don't believe me. wear silk stocking and soma
mascara next time you go for an Interview: be sure to bat your
eyelashes at the BRASS and you too will be highly recommended.
This doesn't apply Just to the women by any means. A young
iellow, can come in. fill out an application, and get a OS-4 Job
that same dav, white anccher with almost identical experience
and qualifications can haunt the place for three months and be
offered a GS-2. The difference between the two: one knew the
boss: the other didn't. I could go on for hours hut why make
you throw up! Just don't expect anything from the Army, take
mv advice and get a Job with Panama Canal, even if it's Just
GS-2. In the long run, you will be happier and get ahead fas-
ter, and you won't have to play with anybody, Just do your work

Dear Sir:
I, too, know how inconvenient the location of the Library is for
those who do not have cars. However I do not believe the sugges-
tion to move it to Balboa Dispensary is going to solve the problem
as there is not enough space there to accommodate the books.
Wouldn't it be cheaper, simpler and easier to make transpor-
tation available to the present Library.
^^ Reader
. Pe,dro Miguel, canal Zone
Dear Sir: '
If the column is still open to comments on the Balboa library
situation I'd like to add a few words. I read with interest the
letters suggesting the move to the dispensary building, the let-
ter stating that this suggestion bad been looked Into and crossed
off, and the news that $11,000.000 is to be spent, thia fiscal year
on construction. I wonder if it wouldn't be possible, somewhere
in this vast housing and construction program that is to re-
novate the Zone, to set aside a sum to construct a decent, cen-
trally located library.
In my home town a small country town of only 3.500
Seople there is a beautiful,' well equipped library located be-
een the grammar school and the nigh school. The students
of both schools are encouraged, by their teachers, to use that
library and they do use it.
. Driving through Balboa this evening I passed the spot left
vacant by the destruction of the old license bureau building and
it struck ma as being the perfect location for a new library.
Building new theaters and commissaries and towns is fine but
why neglect educational 'facilities?
The state of the world today is the result o such neglect In
the past. Give the kids a chance!

NEW YORK.Young Master John Henry Selby
comes to town today, all the way from Tan-
ganyika, and I aim to get real even with the
Harry's the gent who ran me ragged all over
Africa tnis past summer, exposing me to flood
and famine, elephants and buffalo, caterpillars
and lions and thorns and mud and mountains.
Hunter Selby is 26, and he has never been out-
side East Africa before.
He is accustomed to the soothing sound of
lions roaring and hyenas howling outside his
tern, when he bothers to sleep in a tent.
He hatea radio. His wants are simple about
12 pounds of meat a day. a bottle of gin, a
buflalo wounded and angry in the bush.
His help, is .riot unionized. HiaJiead boy. Juma,
is the highest paid of the trouble, and he gets
21 bucks a month and his chaeula.
If Harry needs his toe-nails cut. he hollers for
Juma and Juma comes running with the toey-
cutta. Harry sticks out his foot.
Well, sir, I intend to introduce the young
man to my Jungle.
I know how brave he is with a charging buf-
falo, but he hasn't been caught in the rush-hour
herd that charges the doors of a subway
I have seen him swim crocodile-infested rivers,
but Just wait until he tries to cross Park Ave.
against a light.
A rhino you can dodge, but the cabs go up
on the sidewalk after you.
Selby probably thinks Africa is full of strange
beasts, but he has never seen Toots Bhor's clien-
tele yet. nor. for that matter, Toots himself.
He can And his way through a Jungle with
no compass, so I will take him to Brooklyn and
see how hi* sense of direction fares there.
He speaks Swahlli and three other dialects,
but I defy him to understand the modern wo-
man, who speaks a meaningless gibberish all
erected around the word "divine."
Many a weird tribal ceremony has Harry
watched, but he hasn't seen the New York tribes
do the rumba In El Morocco, or watched the
voodoo rites In the Stork Club, or observed the
oddlv suicidal samba in the Copa.
Nor has he ever seen television. I keep won-
dering what he will make of Milton Berle, Maggi
McNeills and Dagmar. %
He goes to a baseball game, for sure, since
he must not miss our quaint native custom of
screaming curaes at the players, the umpires,
and each other.
He has heard his share of eerie jungle noises,
but he has not yet sat next to a table at which
a girl-lunch is in progress, hearing the niana-
monki carve up absent friends with tongues
vastly sharper than a young Masai warrior's
stabbing spear.
He has seen the tribal scars and stretched
earlobes of the African woman I shall stand
near to catch whim when he first takes a
gapder at the tribal scars, pierced ears and
stretched earlobes of the "21" club cocktailers.
Harry is an expert stalker of game, but there
are things about stalking he never knew.
Ha will learn much when he sees one of our
young women on the prowl for one of our
young men, using all the wiles that woman
has successfully employed since Eve did it to
Adam using apple bait.
Harry is skillful at moving In on quarry, with-
out attracting the quarry's attention, but not
nearly so guileful aa a young blood with a
blonde in his eyes.
Harry knows about grass, and rainfall, and
tracking, and following a blood spoor, but If
he can make anything out of the sign that dally
comes from Washington, where the big beasts
roam the jungle of bureaucracy, he's a better
man than I think.
He shoots straight, too. but his bullet does not
fly ao swiftly or unerringly as a bit of Juicy
gossip or malicious rumor.
Ah. yes. I am going to show Master Selby
my jungle.
I hope he enjoys it, but I bet in a month hell
be pining for the hyenas and the crocodiles,
and the comparative peace and quiet of his
own veldt. Jambo, Bwana laraka.
And don't follow any strange women Into

PARIS. A rather cheerful picture of the
fighting potential of the recreated French army
has recently been presented In thia space.
In order to put the shade as well as the light
into this picture, it is worth describing two
sharply contrasting incidents.
The first took place in the sergeants' mess of
an army barracks. It waa a brief and rather
embarrassing episode.
There were about a dozen French non-coms,
tough, genial men, gathered around a table.
Rather hesitantly, this reporter bagan to ask
questions about such matters aa the danger of
war, the threat of Soviet aggression. American
foreign policy and French Communism.
The French soldiers muttered a few non-com-
mittal answers, out of sheer politeness, and then
relapsed into self-conscious silence.
The reason was clear. They had never really
bothered their heads about such matters.
At least on the company and battalion level.
the French army simply does not concern Itself
with political matters.
This is one of the most reassuring facts about
Yet no army lives In a political vacuum. A
soldier, however unconsciously, breathes the
same political air as a civilian.
And this is why it i* worth describing the
second, very different episode, which took place,
net In the army, but in a small factory in Pa-
ris, where this reporter spent an afternoon talk-
ing with the workers.
Five out of six were women. Thev talked vo-
lubly, and with that passionate vitality which is
the Parisian's special charm.
There was no trace of personal hostility in
what was said what has been written about
French hatred for Americans, as Americans, is
silly non-sense.
Yet the fact remains that, although only one
was an avowed Communist, everything these
French workers said was a remarkable tribute
to the effectiveness of the Moscow Une.
"The Russians." thev said, often in identical
words, "want nothing but peace." And since this
was so. why should poor France be called on
again to prepare for a war more terrible than
The danger of war, if there was danger,
sprang from the desire of the American rich for
high profits.
Wars had already ruined France "We are
only a poor, weak country now." (This profound
lack of self-confidence Is also found in the
array, although it is steadily lessening.)
As for the Americans, they knew nothing of
war. "I apeak frankly," said one woman. "If
there is war, I hop you will win in the end,
because I love liberty.
"But I hope you also, you others, the Amer-
icans, will suffer terribly before the end."
Finally, why must the- Americans think and
talk only of weapons and of war?
One woman (who had been living for fourteen
vears with throe children in a single room of
a building condemned as uninhabitable in 1937)
spoke for the rest.
"You Americans talk of cannons. One cannot
eat a cannon. One cannot lodge oneself In a
It is certainly possible to exaggerate the
meaning of this sort of thing. Almost each
worker. Including the Communist, also said
proudly, "After all. I am profoundlv French."
Even the Communist would probably violently
resist an actual Russian Invasion of France, if
there were means of resistance at hand.
Yet surely this apparently almost universal
acceptance by French workers of the basic
tanets of the Moscow line has its importance,
military aa wail aa political.
Olven the necessary arms and equipment,
France is already visibly capable of producing
a good army, made up of good soldiers. Yet an
army cannot be more than an expression of the
nation which produces It.
This is something which Eisenhower, with his
extraordinary political perceptlveness. grasped
instantly, as everything he says, in public or
private, demonstrates.
It would be wall If other Americans grasped It

toon showing President Truman passing out balloons to Cseeh

The cartoon, of course, was aimed at two things
1) To make the Friendship Balloons appear aa Ul Gov-

2) To make the Crusade for Freedom is backed as spurred

MONKEY-WRENCH CONGRMS.-The heat of the tax de-
bate has coined a new name for this Congress"The Monkev-

First. Congress threw a monkey-wrench into the anti-in-
flation program -at which time many Senators argued that the
would control inflation later when the tax bill came around.
Now the same Senators have thrown a monkey wrench inte
tiietax bill by opening up big loopholes for special interests.
In other words, the Senators kicked the lid off profits with
one foot via the controls bill, then eased the taxes en these
profits with the other. Nothing could help inflation more.
HE BET ON hirohito.In all the hosannas sung over the
Japanese peace treaty and the plaudits given MacArthur, Ache*
sor and Dulles, one man who definitely deserved a bow was not
He is gaunt, grizzled Joseph C. Grew, former Ambassador
to Japan. It was Joe Grew who worked out the idea, later fcJ
lowed by MacArthur, of betting our money on Emperor Hirohito.
Knowing their love of the Emperor. Grew figured that the
Japanese would follow Hirohito when he decreed a surrender;
and would also follow him if he gave the nod to us In post-
war Japan. Therefore he urged a policy of Emperor-Cooperation:
Grew also knew Hirohito was a modern, common-sense in-
dividual, had traveled to Europe as a youngster had been par-
tially tutored by a Japanese Quaker, and was inherently against
the war lords.
Many people criticized Grew for this policy during the war
yearsamong them this writer.
Therefore, I should like to be among thoseas I have be-
foreto pay him tribute on the wise policy which eventually,
culminated in the peace treaty at San Francisco.
HARDING DEFENDED.On top of Herbert Hoover's defense
of the late President Harding. Senator 0*Mahoney of Wvomipg
threw a quote from Harding into the teeth of Senators voting
for special privilege In the tax bill. It showed Harding to be
a man of basic Idealism even though weak about carrying it nut-
Here is what Harding said; "We may call to universal
service every plant, agency, or facility, all in the sublime sa-
crifice for country, and not one penny of war profit shall inure
to the benefit of private individual, corporation, or combination,
but all above the normal shall flow into the defense chest of
the nation.
"There is something inherently wrong, something out St ac-
cord with the ideals of representative democracy, when on
portion of our citizenship turns its activities to private gain an*
defensive war. while another is fighting, sacrificing, er dytssf
for national preservation."
Senator O'Mahoney. incidentally, has waged a tenacious

it would take him 60 days to get his teeth into the Job. For I.
he was we may have no need (or him. There may be nothing
left of the ring sport around here.
It was unfortunate for the hotel man that the first fight
to be held under his official supervision should turn out to be
a particularly disgraceful thing with Saddler and Pep violating
every rule in the book and the referee, no doubt a total stranger
to the new man, permitting the rowdy brawl" to get completely
out of hand.
Due allowances must be made for Mr. Christenberry, whose
credentials as the risht sort seem excellent, though it is clear
he was named bv Gov. Tom Dewey more for his loyalty to the
Republican party than for his known qualifications. The friend-
ly press his appointment received testifies 'to sympathetic and
co-operative support.
He has called a meeting for Oct. 4 to review the fight
Which ended with Pep retiring in his corjier at the end of round
nine with a gaping eve cut. Both fighters should have been
Dited and suspended immediately after the fight, as I under-
. stand one of the conimissionrs, Dr. C. B. Powell, urged, but per-
haps the new man demurred for fear he might be suspected of
trying to throw his weight around too soon. This would be un-
derstandable without being exactly helpful.
The unrullv nature of the fight itself was no more than an
incident. Nobody got hurt but Pep and the customers. But what
;_we don't want to lose sight of is that the incident is Indicate
"* of a loose over-all condition which is not likely to be corrected
-simply by a change in commission chairmanship. What we need
is a top-to-bottom investigation of how the ring sport is con-
ducted here. When Mr. Christenberry moves in that direction
we can be assured he means business. The whitewash in the
-death of George Flores is still showing. When do we get a
legitimate Inquiry into this tragedy?

Mrs. Christenberry admits he has scant knowledge of the
ring sport and how it operates. This is regrettable because it
means delay in a situation which calls for urgent action. Never-
theless, it should not take him 60 days to set up a program This
could be done in 60 minutes if he enlisted the support of know-
ing and willing aids.
Apparently, he intends to lean heavily on Den Dowd, a de-
puty commissioner who once chauffered Gov. Dewey and later
moved up as one of his investigators. And, of course, he is a
loyal party worker. I get good reports on Dowd and hear he

co-operation. He is slated to be the new chairman's field gen-

That blow gave the Dodgers a

With two out in the Giant fourth,
Branca hit Irvin on the arm with

homer of the year into the left-
field seats and that put the New-
Yorkers ahead to stay.
Irvin added an insurance run

homers forced Dressen to admit

that, "We still can win but it
doesn't look too good for us now."
Sunday Title
Tilt Should Be
Real 'Thriller'
Having beaten the Dodgers 3-1
in the opening game of the series
yesterday at Ebbets Field, the
Giants needed only a triumph to-
dayor If that should escape
them, a triumph tomorrowto
win the right to fact the Ameri-
can League Champion Yankees
ln the opening game of the World
Series Thursday.
So rosy were the Giants pros-
pects, Manager Leo Durocher
could afford to gamble with his
pitching today, knowing that the
Dodgers' manager, Charley Dres-
sen, was forced to call on sec-
ondary hurling.
Durocher Indicated he would
gamble by starting Sheldon
Jones, who has been only a fair
righthander and the winner of
only six games this season while
losing ten.
But Durocher reserved the
right to change his mind and
forego the gamble by calling in-
stead on SalMaglle, a curve-ball-
ing specialist who has been his
ace all season ln the Giants' up-
hill climb to glory.
Should Jones start and beat
the Dodgers, Durocher would be
in a fine position with both Ma-
ge and Larry Jansen, his other
ace, ready for the Yankees.
Dressen could not afford to
look beyond today's game. Dres-
sen would like to start either of
his acesEhvln "Preacher" Roe
or Don Newcombebut neither
has had sufficient rest.
Dressen's problem was not on-
ly to win today to keep the Dodg-
ers' hopes alive but to win to-
morrow too. Otherwise that su-
per-team of July is going to go
down in the record books as the
biggest flop the sport ever has
known. For on August 11 they

'^Recruiting Gets Tough As Pressure Football Catches Up With Notre Dame
Irish Now Have To Keep Their
Prospects Under Lock And Key
NEA Sports Editor
Here's the seventh of a

tor that takes you on a cam-
pus-by-campus tour of the
colleges where football (and
the players) are big busi-
nessthe inside story on
pressure football and how
ft gets that way.
Pi.;;, siiRlZED Rivals cor-
ralled Leahy's top prospects.
SOUTH BEND, Id., Octu. 2.
(NEA) Knute K. Rockne built
we!l at Old Notre Dame and
spread its fame.
The Fighting Irish are as much
the home team In Detroit, Pitts-
burgh. Baltimore, East Lansing,
Chapel Hill and Los Angeles,
here they happen to be playing
this Fall, as they are at Notre
Dame Stadium.
They come closer than any o-
ther outfit, professional or col-
lege, to being the nation's foot-
ball team.
But high-pressure football
throughout the land started
catching up with Notre Dame In
Frank Leahy, the biggest win-
ner ever to come out of Winner,
S.D.. sounded the alarm, but no
one paid the slightest heed. He'd
cried wofl oftener than Gloomy
Oil Doble.
But The Master wasn't fooling
when he said Notre Dame no
longer was getting the Class A
bo", that fine lads who ordin-
arily would come to South Bend
were being enticed elsewhere.
Last Fall proved Coach Leahy
wps correct.
Replacements weren't there
when Notre Dame graduated 23
numbers of Its first three teams.
The record three-year unbeaten
string snapped at 39. The Irish
took it on the chin four times and
were tied for their worst record
In 17 years.
"It used to be that we only had
to get freshmen here." says Di-
rector of Athletics Edward W.
Krause. "Now we practically have
to keep them under lock and
"A half dozen or more fine
prospecta who enrolled this Fall
are now In other schools," cuts

of those who switched, or had
their minds changed for them,

"The others Just picked up and
"These boys weren't discour-
aged by tough competition, mind
you, for they could make any col-
lege team in the country."
Illinois suffered for the lack of
a sharpshootlng passer last Fall.
The Illini have one now in Tom
O'Connell, who attended Notre
Dame for two semesters, lrom
September, 1948, to June, '49. His
average dropped below 77, mak-
ing him ineligible. He required
Summer schooling, but had no
yen for It, and packed up.
What puzzles Notre Dame of-
ficials la how come Illinois, three
years later, classifies O'Connell
as a sophomore.
- Ralph Poalone. a Notre Dame
halfback as a freshman and last
Autumn as a soph, Is now a trans-
fer student at Kentucky. Young
Poalone of New Castle (Pa.) High
was sought by Innumerable uni-
versities. His uncle, a priest,
wanted ,hlm to attend Notre
Dame, but players and coaches
here say the youngsters didn't
seem to like the place.
Bill Hollenback, Joe Lelchweis,
Kevin Cahill and Jim Schenk
registered as freshmen this fall,
but are no longer on the premises.
"Hollenback of Scranton, Pa.,
was the best freshman tackle we
had." says Bernle crimmlns. "He
said he was going to Pennsyl-
vania. Lelchweis, a guard, moved
to VUlanova. A New Jersey boy,
he spent last year at Mariana-
polls Prep, Thompson, Conn. Ca-

no use for. They soon began to
get the general Idea.
Lining up park lakes for fish-

moat slashing attack of the Brit-
ish election campaign before the

He spoke only a few hours be-
fore Churchill himself was sche-
duled to laun.'h his campaign In
Bevan added that the "Tories
can't talk sense about the in-
ternational situation. That's why
they have chosen as their leader
a man who is more senseless

Bevan blamed Churchill and
the conservatives for the fact
that the Soviet revolution turn-

clearly hinted that Churchill and
