RP Mayors Rapped on Rise
In Witchcraft, Swindling
The Mayors of all cities of
the Republic of Panama were
severely reprimanded today by
Minister of Government and
Justice Miguel Angel Ordonez
for their negligence regarding
the practice of witchcraft and
fortune-telling In Panama.
In a note to all Municipal
governments Ordoftty cored
their tolerance In pernjKttng so-
called witches, wizards and for-
tune-tellers who claim- to pos-
sess supernatural powers, to
swindle those credulous indivi-
duals who come to them seek-
ing cures, good luck or a know-
ledge of the future.
This tolerant at- the
part of the loen

tellers fallaciously announce
that they possess supposed, oc-
cult powers to heal or to give

Ordonez pointed out that
large numbers of poor, "and
even rich," people are swindled
daily by these exploiters.
The Minister urged Mayors
to issue specific orders to clamp
down on the activities of these
wizards and fortune-tellers.
Ordonez note emphatically
declared: "no one is cured by
the medicinas or prayers, no

Equal treatment for Canal
Zone policemen, firemen and
teachers In conformity with em-
ployes in similar jobs with the
District of Columbia. Is the sub-
ject of a House Bill (H.R. 5490)
now being discussed In Washing-
Rufus Lovelady, president of
the American Federation of Gov-
ernment Employes' Local 14, re-
ceived a House Report on this
bill yesterday.
Whereas the Governor now
has the authority to grant addi-
tional compensation to Canal
Zone policemen, firemen and
school teachers whenever Dis-
trict of Columbia workers in atm-
Uar positions were authorized to
get pay Increases, this bill would
specifically direct the Governor
to comply with new pay raises In
Similar provisions were made
on Sept. 19 when Senator John-
ston of South Carolina introduc-
ed a Senate Bill (2173) which al-
so stated that the Governor of
the Canal Zone "is authorized
and directed to grant additional
compensation to policemen, fire-
men and school teachers em-
ployed by the Canal Zoe gov-
ernment, whenever additional
compensation is granted to em-
ployes of the District of Colum-
bia employed in similar or com-
parable positions.''
The House Report say "In
view of the confusion and unfair
results which have occurred in
the past when long; delays have
ensued before equal treatment
could be achieved by special le-
gislation for these classes of Ca-
nal Zone employes, this bill con-
tains provisions of a continuing
nature calculated to prevent such
inequities in the future"
It is estimated that there are
ipproximately 500 employes of
the Police, Fire and Schools Divi-
sions that would be affected. Of
these, 270 are employed In the
Police Department.

CAIRO, Oct. 17 (UP) Britain's crack 16th Inde-

the Suez Canal Zone garrison today as tension mounted
in the Anglo-Egyptian dispute over Suez and the Sudan.
Royal Air Force Transport Command planes brought
the trouble-shooting paratroopers from Cyprus, where they
had been sent when the Iranian oil dispute looked likely
to erupt into violence.
Meanwhile hundreds of anti-

Don't Go Fly A Kite -
May Be New Rescue Motto
All was quiet yesterday after-
noon about five o'clock at Al-
brook Air force Base in the vic-
inity of Runway 18.
A spanking breeze drifted
across the field and Airdrome Of-
ficer of the Day Captain'Victor
L. Wotjkowskl contemplated the
serenity of things.
He watched the youngster at
the northern end of the runway
manipulate his kite string as the
toy climbed lazily skyward.
Suddenly it spurted. "Hm," he
observed, "the kid's lost his kite,"
as he watched the string trail the
ground and then leap into the
air to become narled in the top
branches of a tree.
Now, Captain Wojtkowskl Is no
tree climber. And there was the
kite trailing from the tree and

KARACHI, Pakistan, Oct. 17
lUP) The assassinated Pakis-
tani Premier Liaquat All Khan
was buried today and the Brit-
ish-educated moderate Khwaja
Nazimuddin took over control of
the government.
Liaquat was buried at 5:50
a.m. (EST). Mourning Moslems
tried to climb the walls of his
home for the 'ast glimpse of him
as his body was carried in the
procession on a gun carriage
flanked by a mounted body-
guard. .
Nazimuddin, governor general
for the past three years under
the British crown, was appoint-
ed as the second Premier in the
nation's four-year history.

nounced his British Knighthood

ment two years later from King
Oeorge VI as Governor General.
Informed sources said Fin-
ance Minister Chulam Moham-
med will be named Governor
General in his place.
Liaquat's body was flown from
Rawalpindi where he was shot

8TH ARMY HQ., Oct. 17 (UP) Communist resist-
ance faded on the approaches to Kumsong today and
United Nations forces drove to within three miles of the
Red's big buildup base.
On the Western front however Chinese Reds, en-
trenched in log and dirt bunkers northwest of Yonchon,
held the United States 1st Cavalry Division to minor gains.
The United States troops were trying to blast their way
north with flamethrowers and hand grenades.
The 8th Army's deepest penetration of North Korea
was on the east coast, where delayed reports put the South
Korean Capital Division only two miles from Kosong, 46
miles north of the 38th parallel.
The United States 1st Cavalry
Division was virtually halted by
artillery and mortar fire.
But attack units of the 5th and
8th Regiments of the division
continued their attack despite a
pounding by 1,800 rounds from
enemy artillery.
United States artillerymen re-
plied with an even heavier bar-
rage on tho Reds.
Increased Communist move-
ment was seen behind the enemy
lines during the day, indicating
the Reds may possibly be chang-

Shipping Lines Up
North-South America
Freight Rates 10%
NEW YORK. Oct. 17 (UP)
Steamship lines announced to-
day that there would be a
general increase in freight rates
of about 10% to and from tha
East Ooast of South America. ,
The new rates will be effec-
tive Jan. 1, 1952.
The announcement, made at
the Canadian and United States
Steamship conference said that
that the increase was necessary
"because of the steadily rising
operating costs."
The increase will affect all
merchandise shipped North of
South between the ports of
Brazil, 1 \ uguay. Argentina, and
the ports of Mexico, the United
States and the Canadian East
A spokesman for the Steam-
ship Conference said the ac-
tual rates on specific commo-
dities was being worked out now
and will be available to ship-
pers by Nov. 1.
While the increase will vary
slightly, according to the com-
modity spokesman, it will aver-
age approximatr/y 10 per cent.
It was learned in computing
the increase, that the steam-
ship companies ir/v carry the
new rate to the nearest half
dollar. This means in soma
cases, that the increase will be
over 10 per cent, and in others,
it will be under. .
The rate of coffee, which Is
the largest aingle Item to be
affected, is currently l.*0 per
60 kilo bag.

to a Washington service reporter

"In the first place lt normal-

the past year, however, various
complications have set In to offer
obstacles causing a temporary
"One of these" obstacles." he
continued, "is the address card
requirement. Servicemen have
been urged to fill out these cards
so that the VA will know where
to send their checks. To date a-
bout 1,700.000 cards have been
received with still more to come."
"Secondly, there are the com-
plications brought abdut by the
free $10.000 Indemnity law. Many
servicemen have signed waivers

Bostonians Bought Off Tax Man
But Bills Turned Up Regardless
WASHINGTON, Oct. 17.(UP)Two Boston
businessmen testified yesterday they paid $15,000 in
"legal fee*" to a New York insurance man after be-
ing promised "substantial" reductions in their de-
linquent tax 'bills which never materialized.
Maxwell Shapiro, president of the Maxwell
Shapiro Woolen Co., And Louis Hellmann, president
of-the Acorn Clothing Co., told a House Ways and
Means Subcommittee they paid the $15,000 to Daniel
A. Friedman.
Jerome Friedman, an Internal Revenue Agent
in New York and not related to Daniel A, Friedman,
testified that the latter paid $10,000 to former Bos-
ton tax collector Denis W. Delaney, now under in-
dictment for taking money to influence his official
In addition to the $10,000 which
went to Delaney, Jerome Fried-
man told the committee that
Daniel A. Friedman paid $2,000
to former St. Louis tax collector
James P. Flnnegan and $1,250 to
Flnnegan's brother Hugh.
There was no direct testimony
to indicate what happened to
the remaining $1,750 that Shapi-
ro and Hellmann allegedly paid
to Daniel A. Friedman.
The committee Is investigat-
ing- chartes of widespread cor-
ruption in the Internal Reve-
nue Bureau. The charges con-
cera bureaus in Boston, St.
Louis, San Francisco, New
York, Newark, N.J., Detroit and
Kansas' City.
, Delaney is under indictment
on charges of taking $12,500 to
influence his official decisions.
Flnnegan also is under Indict-
ment on charges of misconduct
In office and accepting bribes.
Shapiro told the committee
that Daniel A .Friedman told
him the two $5,000 checks he
paid were for legal fees to re-
duce his tax liabilities from a-
bout $142,000 to $40.000.
But he never received the ex-
pected reduction.
"I was Just fleeced by men
who are supposed to be my
friends," Shapiro said.
Both Shapiro and Hellmann
testified they turned over their
money'to Friedman only after
Delaney assured them that the
New YOrk insurance man was
"all rlgh*."
Hellmann since has paid the
$75,000 in taxes he owed the
Government In 1949. Shapiro
still owes $131,000 of the $142,000
he had outstanding.
Before the two Boston men
testified the JusUce Department
was accused by the St. Louis
Post-Dispatch of trying to lnter-

As 04 War Corresponde* In Korea
Jack London Overlooked Fighting
ST. LOUIS Oct. (UP.) The
modern Korean war correspond-
ent is a strange contrast to fam-
ed Jack London,.who covered the
Korean conflict between the Jap-
anese and Russians In 1904.
The autor-reporter's commu-
niques to United Statea newspa-
pers, a scanning of some old is-
sues showed, read more like the
Sunday society pages than an
account of mass killings.

to know that London's dispatch
in the paper was written nearly
five weeks before.
London apparently had plenty
of time to recount his carryings
on in the town of Sunan, where
he took over a deserted house to
wait permission to go over to the
Russian side.
His account of receiving guests
in his underwear disclosed the
presence of Manyoungl, "my Ko-
rean factotum."
Besides acting as official ext-
erminator, Manyoungl did odd
jobs like hustling up some hot
water for London's dally shave.
Shaving, he wrote, was his
"star performance" before the
ogling Sunan inhabitants, who
covered London as thoroughly as
he covered them.

London, labeled in accompany-
ing photographs as his news-

took his unofficial officialdom to

photographs with his 1904 ver-
sion of a Brownie.
Some of his native subjects
"the poor wight I pitch upon for
my victim" had to be over-

Readers of today's fast-mov-

bombs bursting in air. For com-
parison, here is a bit of action
as related by London:
'In the middle of the day, when
the sun tempers the bite of the
wind which sweeps down from
across Siberia, it is my custom to
go for a ride:"
That sounds like lots of fun.

Organized In April, 1947, when

The adult membership has ris-

more of these adults are volun-

grounds that they feel the or-

boys to be men of strong moral

In addition to the regular ac-

Seagoing Dredge
Planned By Navy
The Navy, which did consider-
able dredging in Pacific harbor*
during the island campaigns of
World War II, is planning a sea-
going dredge. Headquarters 15th
Naval District revealed today.
During World War n dredges
were moved from continental
bases, and from harbor to har-
bor, by loading them on floating
drydocks. Standard dredge hulls
were too light to withstand the
open sea.
Considerable study has since
been give nto development o a j
dredge that can be towed at sea. 1
Plans for the new dredge are now
under way, with the Elliot Ma-
chine Corporation of Baltimore,
Maryland, working on, designs
under a Navy contract.
Navy civil engineers said prim-
ary differences between the new
seagoing, non-self-prop tiled
dredge and the standard harbor
dredge will be in the hull and in
protection provided for the su-
perstructure. Its rugged design
will take into account necessity
for handling a large range of
materials. Including sand, heavy
gravel, coral, stone and blasted
solids .

private schools, we are going to
need school buildings." Byrnes
said. "We are going to educate
our children."
A system of private schools
with state subsidization is expec-
ted to be devised If the Supreme
Court rules out segregation m
the Clarendon County case.
Byrnes' statement is a clear In-
dication that a long range build-
ing program would fit in with
such a plan of private schools.

ranged for John W. Davis, for-

"Please decide for us," requests
a correspondent, "whether I am
more to be pitied or scorned. In
the accompanying hand I made
a losing play, but I maintain
that it was bad luck rather than
bad judgment.
"West opened the four of clubs,
dummy played low. and I (hold-
ing the East cards) put up the
Jack. South won with the ace of
clubs, led to the ace of hearts,
and then returned a low diam-
ond from the dummy. Here Is
where I.made the unsuccessful
play of putting up the ace of
diamonds. I knew that South had
one diamond at most because of
his leap to three hearts over one
diamond doubled. If South had
the singleton king I could not af-
ford to play low.
"As it happened, South ruffed
and forced out my king of hearts
by leading the queen. I returned
a spade to West's ace, and a sec-
ond round of spades was won by
dummy's king. Declarer led the
queen of diamonds from dum-
my, discarding a spade from his
own hand, west could win with
the king, but nothing could stop
declarer from gettlne to dummy

his losing club on the Jack of

the contract if I had played a
low diamond on the first round
of that suit. Did I make a bad
play or did I have bad luck?
I'm sorry to say that my corre-
spondent made a bad play. Many
players will recognize themselves
In this sad tale. They sav to
themselves: "If I let declarer
sneak a trick home with a sin-
gleton kins of diamonds, I might
Just as well Jump out of the win-
dow." And they proceed on the
theory that they'd rather kick
the hand around than risk being
East's proper line of thought
Is very simple. If South has the
king of diamonds, the contract
cannot be defeated. It doesn't
matter whether East takes his
ace or loses It. Dummy's black
kings are both sure entries, and
the diamonds can surely be
brought In.
The only hope Is that South Is
void of diamonds. Therefore East

take his chancea.
the public schools of the state
and the South.
A special Federal Court upheld
the principle of segregation but
ordered Clarendon County to
equalize its Negro schools.
Byrnes said "the people must
be patient" with the school
building program.
He said Government officials
hold little hope that enough steel
and other materials will be avail-
able for school construction un-
til the first quarter of next year.
Byrnes said this time must be
spent in consolidating school dis-
tricts which he said have now
been reduced from 1,309 to 115
in 42 counties.
He said the state is going a-
head with plans for the school
program under the assumption
that the Supreme Court will not
outlaw segregation.
The Governor said the threat
to segregation posed by the Clar-
endon suit is not the sole reason
for the "revolutionary" school
program. He said the program
was necessary to provide all chil-
dren with adequate school facili-
ties and to raise the general in-
telligence level of the state.
Byrnes said one-third of the
potential soldiers from South Ca-
rolina were rejected in World
War n and by Selective Service
last year because of intelligence
He said this shows that South
Carolina is in "the cellar of illit-
"The education of tbe boys and
girlswhite and coloredof the
rural areas is of vital concern to
the people who live In the cities
and towns of South Carolina," he
"Our goal is to provide a full
educational program from the
first grade through high school
for each race in every district,"
he said.
Byrnes admitted that in the
past South Carolina has not giv-
en Negro children educational
opportunities equal to whites.
But he said it was "right and
wise" to provide Negroes with
equal faculties.
Byrnes reviewed the progress
of the school improvement pro-
gram and declared with support
of all the people "we shall give
to all the children of South Car-
olina... an education equal to
that given the children In any
state of-the .union." .

All of us. at least once a year}'
should ask ourselves this quesl'.
"What kind of neighbors arf
We know how Important it ii
to have good neighbors, but it 1
just as important to be good
neighbors ourselves.
This column Is the answer te]
a request from a working woman',
who says she is no crank and
has never had trouble with a
neighbor. But the family next
door Is so noisy and thoughtless'
of others that her sleep is broken
night after night and it is im-
possible for her to ever sleep late
on her days off from work.
As she says: "They are prob-
ably so used to their own noise,,
they don't realize how disturbing
it is to their neighbors." And that
Is usually the situation when a
neighbor is a nuisance; the an-
noying behavior is so routine il
is not recognized for what it la
So it Is well for a family now
and then to check up on what
kind of neighbors they really are
A few questions that should be
asked are:.Do we let a pet or pets
annoy the neighbors? We should
not expect neighbors to be as
fond of our pets as we are our-
selves, or half as willing to" ex-
cuse their behavior.
Do we disturb the neighbors by
loud and unnecessary racket
such as the constant banging ol
doors, the loud playing of a radio
or phonograph or unitimelj
practice on a piano by a child
Do we yell for the children to
come to suppe.r in shrill voices
or shout at them in anger?
Do we let late parties grow lots
and noisy?
Do we neglect our yards so the**
are an ugly blot on a street of
well-kept lawns?
Do we borrow too frequently?
Do we let our children "live"
in our neighbors' yards and in
their houses.
These are questions every fam-
ily should ask itself if it real?*
wants to BE as well as HAVE
good neighbors.

In Corozal Area
Go On Trial Nov. 5
In an effort to speed up flow
of vehicles In the Corozal area,
several traffic changes will be

Present plans, worked out by
Canal and Army officials, call for
the enforcement of these chang-

8:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., and
3:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., the
peak periods for traffic in that
Included in the proposals are
the provisions that:
1. Northbound traffic on Barth

left into Ordnance;
2. All southboun dtraffic from

Organised in April, 1947, when
the Local Council elected its first
set of officers, It has grown
steadily In adult and boy mem-
bership during the past 4 years.
From an organization of less
than 300 boys In S troops at the
end of the first year, it has grown
to 13 troops with more than 500
boys during the past 3 years.
The adult membership has
risen steadily also, but most
Important is the fact that more
and more of these adults are vol-
unteering their services on the
Eunds that they feel the organ-
tlon Is actually serving its
purpose: that of training the
boys to be men of strong moral
character and good citizenship.
In addition to the regular act-
ivities carried out by these boys
in accordance with the Council's
program, the boys have particip-
ated in a number of community
and other public functions to
which they have been invited as
Individual troops, or on an Dis-
trict or Council-wide basis.
ft is during these public ap
pearance* that the people of
the community are given an
opportunity to determine to
what extent these boys ato
benefited by the program, and
it is encouraging to be able to
ay that the comments are al-
ways very favorable.
The organization has an active
membership of over 500 boys
divided up into 30 units and 13
troops of Cubs, Scouts and Ex-
plorer Scouts, in 7 townsldes.

1952 Industrial
Exposition Set
For Chicago
The Ninth Biennial ASTE In-
dustrial Exposition will take
place March 17-21, 1952. at the
Chicago Amphitheatre. This Ex-
position Is sponsored and oper-
ated by the American Society of
Tool Engineers, 10700 Buritan
Avenue, Detroit 31. Michigan,
which was established in 1932
and whose current membership
of 18,000 makes it one of the
largest American trade associa-
The ASTE advises that foreign
exhibitors are invited to parti-
cipate If they have machines,
tools, accessories, or allied equip-
ment which may be of Interest
to Industry. In this connection,
a recent letter from ASTE to the
United States Department of
Commerce states that: "In view
of the current shortage of ma-
chines, tools, and accessories, in
the United States, it is believed
that a broader invitation to
exhibit should be extended to
equipment manufacturera in for-
eign countries who are in the
position to supply Industry with
badly needed equipment.
It is not necessary that such
foreign countries have a U. 8.
representation although it is an-
tlclpated that, if a foreign com-
pany should exhibit, U. 8. rep-
resentation will be established
during the time of the exposi-
tion, if the market outlook war-
rants such a development for the
foreign producer, as indicated by
contacts made during the ex-
position week."
Foreign visitors are also cor-
dially invited. The exposition
should be of special Interest to
representatives of business firms.
It is not open to the public.

CLEVELAND News on the
atomic front is that the Ameri-
can Communists are gathering
in their tiny undercover cells,
spinning strategy for their new-
est propaganda campaign
their quasi military "Opera-
tion Huddle."
Objective of this tactic is
to convince skilled war
workers that my effort by
our national security forces
to disperse new. key defense
plants in a line ten or
twenty miles distant from
each other, out of areas such
as this lakeside city, would
mean lower wages, fewer
jobs, less money and^htgher
By stlrrlnpr labor opposition
to dispersed war plants, the
comrades of the cells hope to
keep our factories huddled ,ln
cities such at this crowded one
so that. In the event of war,
the Soviet airforce could really
powder all vital plants with Just
the SO or 30 atomic bombs in
their stockpile.
Directing the drive to make
us "sitting ducks" for enemy
attacks will be the pro-Soviet
unions whose leaders are meet-
ing in New York this week-
end to launch a new labor fed-
eration, or at least tr> formally
band together under a single
high command.
But our dispersal program is
getting under way right now
under a network of "Dispersal
Task Forces" operating in this
sector and 14 others, reaching
from New York to the cities
in the San Francisco Bay area.
These are community groups
which have begun to move
swiftly since we detected-4h*
second Soviet atomic bomb test
There are also pioneer disper-
sal task forces In Philadelphia.
Birmingham, Minneapolis, Los
Angeles, Detroit. B. Louis. Seat-
tle and four upstate New York
It must be made clear
that their job is not to din-
mantle any plants, nor
move to establish factories
far beyond any city lines.
It's their task to chart
new plants in locations
which are so distant from
each other that no one
atom bomb can knock out
two targets at once but
so closelv must these new
constructions be spaced that
they tetil be in the tame
marketing, transportation,
banking and customer area.
In other words, the govern-
ment isn't asking, anvone to
pick up his plant and build it
out on the vast plains running
alonesHe our western railroads.
Nor rs it seeking to disrupt
families and retail trade.
What it wants Is enough mi-
leage between two let factories,
for example, to make it prohi-
bitively costly *o the atom-
bomb parched Soviets to knock
out a"v one line of production.
Within three or four weeks
the National Security Resources
Board will call top manage-
ment and labor leaders together
In Washington for a progress
report. The program no longer
seeks suooort it Is rolling
with full backing from, the AFL
and CIO.
Not too long ago. AFL presi-
dent William Greet ouiftlv dis-

tion's 800 central labor coun-
cils, sayin?. in part, It can now

Joe DiMagnificent

NEW YORKThe Big "Man belted the fat
three-zero pite hand he swung from his old
sore heels and he hit it the way that he
always used to hit it and it shouida gone for
a triple but It was a beaut double, anyhow.
It didn't make any difference that he got
thrown out on a sacrificial bunt that day. He
had been walked twice on purpose, sos the
Giant pitcher could get at a guy who had mere-
ly won the semi-clincher the day before with
a base-crammed homer.
And the walk was the win, It turned out.
And he had more or less taken the tough one
that Monday with the only homer that looked
and sounded like a real one, this beat-up old
boy wh is Just about through.
And I hope he Is through. I hope this was
the last time he ever swings a bat in anger.
because Mr. Joseph Paul DIMagglo. festooned In
broken records, wound up what migb.t *el' be
his last season with pride, as he always worked
with pride.
All the pride of the man was seen In the
eighth inning when he went for the fat pitch,
sure and haughty, when he just as easy could
have waited out the third walk.
DIMagglo was weary of walks, the last day
that put the finish on the Series, and could be
said to have also put the finish on DIMaggio.
Twice they passed him to get to Gil Mo-
Dougald. the Yankees' best hitter the man
who set up the kill with a four-run homer
which Is so rare in a Series that the honor is
shared by only two others.
That is respect, in spades, to a tired old fellow
with a slow swing, who Is generally conceded to
be all done. I expect that It is the greatest com-
pliment I have ever seen paid a true competitor.
The tragedy of age in sports DlMag Is Just
on 37, and with his bad legs and bad feet and
bad elbows this Is old is that yesterday's hero
always goes out in a wave of boos and tsks,
tsks, and alnt-it-a-shame kind of talk.
It is the talk vou hear today about Joe Louis,
who never quit when he was ahead, but has '
clumsily pursued his calling when he should
have quit it long ago.
Already they were suffering for DIMagglo.
The most rabid Giant fan. and by far the
noisiest, that I know, a Miss Eileen Wilson, com-
pleted the wreckage of her vocal cords when
Joe hit the homer the other day.
Miss Wilson sells some sort of cigarette, by
singing, when she Is not annoying me and the
world with shrill screams in favor of the Giants,
and she is Intolerant of Yankee fans to the
point of physical combat.
But she turned to my one undeafened ear
just before Joe hit the homer and said, quite)
honestly: "Please, God, let DiMaggio hit just
one good one."
I told this misdirected thrust that she need
not waste her sympathy, her possibly spurious
pity, on a good man.
So Joe hit one. about that time, and I swear
she hojlered louder than when Stanky kicked
the throw out of Rlzzuto's fist. Then she turned
and et up some mild fellow who had the te-
merity to musmur that maybe the Yanks still
had a chance. _,
Point is that DiMaggio. on a very so-so season,
and a from-hunger Series in the first three
games, finally delivered in the face of compas-
sion tinged with contempt, and he quit it with
a high head and all the honor that any athlete
may accrue.
For him no antl-cllmax. pathos, as happened
to Babe Ruth, when he left It too late. Joe, if
he quits, quit real loud.
You can always be wrong, but I think he
wouldn't quit strong If he attempts to play
regularly next year. Maybe they take him out
of the clean-up spot. Maybe he Is benched for
a newer and fresher candidate.
Maybe he begins to reap the boos, which had
started already this year and, what's worse,
the pity, so that the opposition is even con-
sidering the idea of a cheap pitch a fat.
juicy pumpkin ball to salve his aching pride.
This I do not want to see.
My boy Joe wound up right, -with the big
swing on the ball he didn't have to hit. and
when he hit it I knew where It was headed. I
can't think of a better epitaph for a guv who
always handled himself with fierce pride.
When he strode off the field he was still
dangerous. He was still the Big Man.

WASHINGTON(NBA")When the record of
the 82nd Congress is completed it will show that
President Truman was given something on most
of his major requests.
In a session notable principally for the bad
relations between the White House and Congress,
the President was given all he asked for on prac-
tically no measure. If half a loaf Is better than
none, then the President muit be satisfied with
what he was able to salvage.
The really remarkable thlnr; about this first
session of the 82nd Congress was the way in
which the loose coalition of southern Democrats
and northern Republicans was able to impose
its will on the Chief Executive.
Military measures fared better than the non-
military requests by the President Money to run
the American arms program was appropriated
almost to the full extent requested.
In some cases Congress eve:, raised the ante.
IMT universal military trainingwas final-
ly approved, but with a delayed effective date.
The draft law was extended.
G.I. benefits were extended tu apply to Korea
vets. Insurance for the armec forces was in-
Disability pensions were approved for non-ser-
vice connected injuries, over the President's veto.
Requests for tax increases and the President's
budget were cut somewhat the former more
than the latter. The tax bill now looks like rough-
ly a one-third reduction.
But the economy advocates who early in the
year talked of cutting the budget by six to even
nine billion dollars now seen destined to miss
this goal by a considerable amount.
Supplemental appropriation requests in the
first half of calendar 1962 mUht even end the
budget for this fiscal year over the President's
original 171.9 billion.
Among other Presidential requests on which
Congress ha* completed action, increasing of Ex-
port-Import Bank lending authority and waiver
of the import tax on copper are about the only
measures that went through clean.
Famine relief for India, requested as a grant,
was changad by Congress into a loan.
Cordell Hull's reciprocal TraJe Agreements act
was extended for two years more, but Congress
tacked on a "peril point" amendment which the
President didn't like a bit.
Export controls were renewed, but with Mis-
souri Senator Kern's curbs on trade with com-
munist countries which the administration ob-
jected to as unworkable.
On domestic affairs. President Truman's re-
Juest for an omnibus housing aid bill was cut
own to a defense housing bill.
Reconstruction Finance Corporation reorgani-
zation was voted after the President changed
his views to conform with congressional ideas.
On other governmental 'eorgainzatlon mea-
sures to carry out ex-Preslo-iit Hoover's com-
mission recommendations. Congress did nothing.
Postal rate raises are going through, but not
for all requested.
Looking over the list of unfinished business
which Congress will still face on reconvening
next January, It is shown to be not too formi-
This Is not because Congress has cleaned the
slate. Up to Oct. 1, only 161 public laws had
been passed this session. No 151. incidentally,
authorized coinage of SO-cent pieces commemo-
rating Booker T. Washington and George Wash-
ington Carver.
The principal reason Congress hasn't passed
many laws this session Is that there haven't
been so many requests from .he executive de-
In early 1950. the President had over 150 spe-
cial requests before Congress. This year he has
had only about 50. The reduction was caused
largely *w deferment of non-defense programs.
What remain as unfinished ousiness are large-
ly the "fair deal" reform mensures with which
this Congress refused to have any truck.
Revision of the Taft-Hart'ey law, the Bran-
nan plan* health insurance, Oscar Ewlng's new
disability insurance plan, aid to the states for
education, increased social security, the Truman
civil-rights program including FEPC, anti-poll
tax and anti-lynch laws.
Also apparently destined to hang over are ad-
mission of Hawaii and Alaska to statehood. St.
Lawrence seaway. Hell's Canyon dam and a
whole raft of deferrable public works.
They're hardy perennials, so the President
shouldn't be too dissatisfied with what be got.

WASHINGTON. Senator Taft let his hair down the other"!
evening at an_off-the-record dinner for Republican newcomers to""
Under a barrage of questions, he talked hke a Presidentla-
condioate but couldn't be coaxed into admitting he was one
"Benator." blurted Illinois' Congressman Tim Sheehan, "when
we go to a football game on Saturday afternoon and we see play-
ers running up and down the sidelines, we assume they are about
ready to get in the game. You have been running up and down
an over tne country. Are you or are you not a candidate"
"Not at the moment," grinned Taft
"Would you be Interested in a Taft-MacArt-mr ticket'" fired
Congressman Alber Morano of Connecticut.
.'VoiJ wouldn't, but MacArthur might be interested in a Mac-
Arthur-Taft ticket." shot back Mr. Republican.
However, the hottest party question was brought up bv Cali-
fornia's Congressman Pat Hillings, who asked
"In view of the present investigation of the National Chair-
men of both political parties, do you think Guv Gabrielson Una
GOP chairman) should resign?"'
"He should be given a full opportunity to present his side of
the case. Perhaps it will be proved that he didn't do anything
illegal,' Taft began cautiously, then added bluntly: "But never-
theless, he will eventually have to go."
The Ohio Senator puffed into the private dining room at Wash-
ington's Hotel 2400 an hour late, looking tired, after a long Senate

tomenow, a waitress also wandered into the line and had her
picture taken with the Senator.
The Congressmen then devoured $340 worth of fruit cup. roast
beet, baked potato, string beans and strawbtrry sundae before
Tan was called upon.
He spoke for 20 minutes from notes on the back of an en-
velope, reviewing his Ohio election cmapaign and comparing its
issues with the 1952 campaign.
He stressed the need for hard campaigning f the Republican!
are going to win the White House and Congress next year
"The reason I got as many votes as I did in Ohio,'' Taft de-
clared, waving the envelope In his hand, "was because I asked so
many people to vote for me."
He warned that it would be a mistake for the GOP to try to
win merely by exposing Democratic corruption
Though he favored continuing these exposures, he urged
steady GOP hammering at other Issues, such as Communists in
government, the trend toward socialism and too much Govern-
merit spending.
After Tail's preliminary remarks. Congressman Ayres put
Tall on the firing line and opened the off-the-record meeting to
questions. He offered to screen the questions, however, by having
them addressed to him first.
"That's all right, Bill," Taft Interrupted. "I'li answer any ques-
tions they ask."
The first to Jump up was Michigan's Congressman George
Meader, former ace Senate investigator, whose one question took
several minutes to ask.
"That's a good speech," Ayres finally blurted, cutting him off.
Thereafter the questions were short and snappy, highlighted
by the political posers from Sheehan and Hillings.
One significant question was whether Taft approved Senator
McCarthy's smear tactics. Congressman were especially interested
in this one, since many GOP leaders' and newspapers, including
Life magazine, have suggested that it was time for Senator Taft to
divorce himself from McCarthylsm.
Taft's reply was neither yes nor no.
"Nobody should make charges he cannot prove behind the
cloak of Congressional immunity," Taft said.
"At the,same time Senator McCarthy has done some good in.
alerting the'eonntry to the subversive influences in government."
For an hour, Taft swung at these question.-,, chiefly on cam-
paign Issues, how to win votes and the need for party organiza-
tion. _.,
a For example, Congressman Charles Brownson of Indiana
wanted to know whether the Taft-Hart ley Law "will be an issue
in next year's campaign and do you think the law needs some
Taft retorted that, If It becomes an Issue. It "will be one for
He claimed the Republican Party can snuw that It helped
the worklngman by passing the law. This was the Issue, he re-
minded, behind his fight for re-election in Ohio.
The smear campaign put on against me by the (CIO) Poll-.,
tlcal Action Committee only made votes for me." he declared.
Taft added that he favored amending tho Taft-Hartley law,
including a provision to end the union-shop-eiectlon procedure.
At 10 p.m., Ayres cut off the questions and adjourned the off-
the-record meeting. The rental time had expired on the banquet
h.i'I. A grinning, hand-shaking Taft departed, looking less tired
than when he had arrived. -> .
Football isn't the only sport to get a going-over by the Justice
Department's antitrust division.
Others on the griddle for restricting radio and television will
be boxing and baseball. This may curtail the television of fight*
In selected theatres.
Justice Department attorneys have been eyeing the baseball-
broadcast situation for some time, and once were on the verge
of en agreement with the ball clubs.
Both the big leagues had indicated they would give all radio
aitd TV networks and even break, but the Justice Department,
unsatisfied, now has the case on Assistant Attorney General Mor-
rison's desk.

_> Net since the invention of etymology has the noun miracle
~ ired such an arduous and ceaseless workout as In the world
Any writer who composed a piece without at least one
reference to the supernatural was put away as a worship-
_ of false rods, a wrongo and anti-Dnrocher.
ia The word wasn't used too loosely, at that. Trouble is it
wasn't applied to the right guy. Not that the Dandy Little Man-
ager didn't have himself a garish year, but how about Ole Case?
On him the word looks good. too. There were no Ruths, Cobbs or
Speakers sitting in his dugout, either.
.Here's something the boys seem to have overlooked. In the
spring Mr. J. Alphabet Splnk polled 204 sports writers and here's
haw they picked the first four clubs in each league for the Sport-
ing News:
National: New York (99), Brooklyn (89). Philadelphia (24).
Boston (81.
American: Boston (149i, New York (32), Cleveland (20).
Detroit (3).
This poll is no better or worse than most but it does repre-
sent the best available expert analysis and, as you see, It foresaw
no miracle as a necessary condition to Giants' success. In short,
the Oiants figured.
The Yankees didn't. An overwhelming majority (149 to 321
put the Red Sox. with added p tching strength, ahead of Casey
Stengel's personnel. Thus, if anybody did a. a, er what's that
is batting
pennants, three world series wins, all in a row.

By United Press
NEW YORK, Oct. 17.The 35 coaches on the
United Press Football Rating Board still are riding
the University of California bandwagon. The Golden
Bears from California get top billing for the third
straight week. This week California polled 313 votes,
while Tennessee received 258 to move into the run-
ner-up slot. Michigan State dropped to third place.
Texas held fourth place and Texas A. & M. ranked
fifth again.
Georgia rec'.i. with four victo-
ries, is the sixth ranking team.
Illinois retained seventh and

The Giants caught the public imagination because they did
It the hard way. They made their run like Cavalcade used to,
irom way back. And they got help, though asking none, from the
Brooklyns who quit, or something, in the stretch when the pres-
sure got hot. Under Dressen they didn't have what It takes; the
Giants, under Durocher. did.
If Durocher keeps a scrap book it contains few pieces of mine.
Yet I never said the fellow couldn't run a game as well as any-
body you can name. Anybody. This next observation may sound
like a preposterous contradiction. I believe the Giants should
have won easy Instead o giving everybody in town palpitation
o the heart.
Durocher has a fixation and It handicaps him as a manager.
He can't make up his mind. You find him experimenting with
his lineup far into summer. Trying things, working out problems
he should have settled or got a pretty definite line on In spring!
It wasn't until June or later that Durocher finally decided
Where Monte Irvin, Bobby Thomson and Whitey Lockman be-
longed. They weren't newcomers. He had 'em In spring camp. Only
Willie Mays was an added starter in the lineup that eventually
won. Mays and young Al Corwln, the pitcher. You cant fault
manager for trying to get the maximum out of his material,
but if vou wait too long you give up too much. That's what hap-
5 L Duroche,^5K whf he had to drive the Giants so hard gS?SCiK^3S?lSS
In the stretch to win.
Same thing last season. The Giants figured to be in conten-
tion all the way, even If they didn't logically figure to win, which
they didn't. But from midseason on they were the best in the
league, Just as thev were this year. Of course, the addition o
Jim Hearn helped, but Durocher had Sal Mage from the start.
When Durocher finally got around to using the Barber in ro-
tation he won 13 of his last 14 decisions for him. Used from the
|tart, the Giants might have taken it all. Missed by only five.
Maybe the Giants are set now and Durocher's passion for
Sperlmentatlon. at Umes seemingly without point, will be kept
restraint. Certainly his performance on the field the past two
years indicates he is no longer a stranger to the word. He used
to say scornfully, 'Nice guys finish last." Today nobody in base-
ball tries to be nicer.
As a consequence he has taken on new respectability and
f/espect and I should think he'd be all the happier for it. I don't
suppose my compliments mean a thing to him but for what
they're worth he has them with sincerity and without qualifica-

against the strong Miami-Jack-

Twenty-six players, including
11 Lettermen, will accompany
Coach John Fawcett on the trip
that will mark the first time
that a Canal Zone High School
team has left the Isthmus to
engage In a regular scheduled
athletic contest.
Well aware of the tough as-
signment ahead of them, the
Bulldogs are not resting on
their Canal Zone Laurels. To
date the Balboa gridiron ele-
ven has not been scored upon;
the Miami-Jackson record is
also an Impressive one, as this
high school squad has already
seen action in four tough ball
Smes, and have yet to taste
e bitterness of defeat. In
their last ball game, last week-
end, they defeated the Orlando
team 21 to 13.
Locally, the Balboa squad Is
nat only the toughest, but one
of the largest, and their su-
periority of numbers has been
an important factor in their
grid successes. This fact, how-
ever, will not hold true in
Miami. The Generals have an
impressive "Two-Platoon Sys-
tem", and will be able to
employ a specialist in each
position, whether on. the de-
fensive or offensive.
One thing Is certain... Coach
John Fawcett will go along,
all the way, with his backfield.
which, to date, has operated
like the proverbial well-oiled
clock. With Ray Nicklsher doing
the master-minding at Qurr-
terback, Fawcett will be able to
depend on one of the most
reliable "thinkers" available In
local football scene.
Jim May, the fleet-footed
halfback, who scored the only
touchdown against Cristobal last
Friday, and a sure bet for the
All Canal Zone team, will prop-
ably see action for the most
part of the game, along with
quarterback Nlckesher. Both ue
lettermen, the most impressive
of which is Jim May, who still
he* two years of high-school
football ahead of him.
Bob Peacher, at the other
half, and Sam Maphis. holding
down the fullback position, will
give Balboa a well-experienced
all-letterman backfield.
But the entire story of the
Bulldog eleven does not lay
exclusively in their backfield.
The Balboa squad boasts not
only one of the heaviest, but
surely the hardest driving line
on the Isthmus. Clair Godby,
the tackle with a heart for the
game, as big as the frame he
carries, will Captain the Miami
Bound team. BUI Riley will be
performing at the- other tackle
Dick Dilhnan and Frank Bryan
at guards, will surely draw
starting assignments. The ends
will alternate, depending on
whether they are on defense
or offense, and worthy of men-
fenslve end, Bill Underwood,
who handles his position with
a maximum of efficiency.
The loss of Dick Ostrea for
this game, will do the Balboa
squad no good. Dick Ostrea Is
19 years old, and because of
bis age,- is Ineligible for the
game. Ostrea, however, is going
along with the squad as Stud-
ent Managed.
Despite the fact that Balboa
goes into the game as the
under-dog8, the entire squad
seems confident, and feel that
they can make a good showing
against their states-side rivals;
as a matter of fact the aire
of confidence has risen to such

says It hurts the players.
"If It's to p-i board, room and

go aheacr and ilo It. But, what Is
decided, let's put everything on
top of the table."
Drake says rich alumni aren't
the answer to athletic problems.
"The only equitable basis to true
amateur standing-" saya the
Oklahoma coach.
Drake cited one case as an
example. He sold one Texas high

Surprise House Revolt Upsets
Schedule For Bigger Tax Bite
__The House rose in surprise
revolt against Its Democratic
leadership yesterday and de-
feated a compromise $5,732.000 -
000 tax bill that would have
raised personal income levies by
i 1134 per cent on Nov. 1.
The roll call vote was 203 to
The action sent the high-
priority revenue measure back
to a Senate-House conference
committee for revision.
But those votine against the
bill were split over whether it
should be revised up or down.
The decision to toss the bill
back to conference was jammed
through by an unusual coali-
tion of Republicans and New
Deal Democrats.
Manv of the Republicans
hoped thr action would result
in shelving the tax bill for
good, so there would be no in-
crease at all this year. The
dissident Democrats, on the
other hand, want the confer-
ence to raise the tax bite
closer to the $:.2eOeO.0M
figure originally approved by
the House.
On the final vote. 122 De-
mocrats. 34 Republicans and
Rep. Frazier Reams. Ohio In-
dependent, voted for the bill.
Voting against it were 139 Re-
publicans and 64 Democrats.
While the House did not vote
any specific "instructions" to
the conference committee, par-
liamentarians said the action
had the technical effect of the
House "insisting".' on Its own
original version of the tax bill.
Democratic leaders. from
Speaker San Rayburn down
were taken completely by sur-
Erlse Thev had expected the
111 to pass easily. Plans for
Congress to adjourn Saturday
were thrown into uncertainty.
The tax bill is at the very top
of President Truman's list of
"must" legislation before ad-
journment, and no one was
willing to predict that the con-
ference committee could reach
a quick agreement on a new
version more acceptable to the
One likely effect of the
House action will be to post-
Eone the effective date of
Igher excise taxes on liquor,
automobiles, cigarets. gasoline
and hundreds of other items.
The new excise levies will take
j effect Nov. 1 only if the bill Is
| signed into law by President
Truman by Oct. 21.
Anv delay in passage which
causes the bill to become law
later than that date would
mean that the excise levies
could not take effect before De-
cember 1.
Sen. Walter F. George ID-
Ga.i. head of the Senate Tax
conferees, served notice that he
won'tbe in a hurry to do any-
thing" about the House action.
'I went as high as I'm going
to go." he told reporters. He
added that if a deadlock results,
that's the end of the tax bill."
Sen. Eugene Millikln (R-
Colo >. top Republican Senator
on the Conference group, also
said he does not believe "the bill
will be much altered" by fur-
ther deliberations.
He voiced confidence, how-
ever, that a tax bill will be ap-
proved without anv delay" In
adjournment plans.
Rep. Wilbur D. Mills. (D-
Ark.i a member of the confer-
ence group, said he did not
know what will happen to the
bill now.
"We'll have to see If we can
work something out." he told a
reporter. "Maybe we can. I
don't know."
The $5.732.000.000 bill which
the House spurned was a com-
promise worked out by the
Senate-House conferees after
weeks of meetings, which once
threatened to end in a dead-
lock. The Senate originally ap-
proved a $5,500,000.000 tax
The personal income tax
hike of 11". per cent was
agreed upon by splitting the
difference between the ori-
ginal House figure of 12'; per
cent and the Senate figure or
11 per cent.
Both chambers were agreed
from the start on a five per
cent Increase in corporation
taxes, raising the maximum
levy to 52 per cent.
Chairman Robert L. Dough-
ton. ID-N.C.) of the tax-fram-
ing House Ways and Means
Committee, was stunned by the
surprise reversal.
Immediately after the vote
was announced, he asked for
reappointment of House con-
ferees to resume meetings with
Senate representatives on the
bill. This formality was com-
pleted at once, but Doughton
gave no indication of his plans
for seeking a new bill.
Rep. Herman P. Eberharter.
of Pennsylvania, a ranking De-
mocratic member of the Ways
and Means Committee, led the
fight against the compromise
. He said it was "unfair" to
persons In lower income
brackets. fc
Eberharter centered" his fire
on clauses which would grant
exemptions from the ll*i
per cent boost to single per-
sons making more than $23,-
0* a year and married per-
sons making more than $56,-
0*0 a year. Their tax increase,
under a complex formla,
would be only about nine far
The higher corporation taxes
would be retractive to last April
1. Corporations would have to
pay 30 per cent instead of 25
on the first $25,000 of their In-
come, and 52 per cent Instead
of 47 on the remainder.
The Excess Profits Tax for-
mula also would be revised to
yield about $20.000.000 more'a
The new excise levies, design-
ed to bring in an additional $1,-
204,000.000 annually, would in-
clude raising the liquor tax 30
cents per 100 proof fifth; cigar-
ets from seven to eight cents
a pack: gasoline from one and
one-half to two cents a gallon;
automobiles from seven to 10
per cent of the manufacturer's
The compromise figure ori-
ginally approved by the Senate-
House conferees would have
provided only about half of the
$10.700.000.000 a year which
President Truman requested to
put the defense program on a
j "pay-as-we-go" basis.
But Doughton told the House,
! Just before the vote, that the
; compromise figure represents
, "as much of a burden as the
economy and the country can
stand under present conditions."
