With tears of rapturefear or indirection

And yet, no one has ever said: "I love yon"
Who didn't know the meaning of the words.
For they can be the key to Love Si Laugher,
Or they can be just something for the birds.
A chance to kiss and p!ay a thankless part,

WASHINGTON. A slight difference of opin-
ion concerning the nutritive value of alcohol as
opposed to less ethereal foodstuffs has Imposed
a ban upon your correspondent this year, since
the medical profession adheres to the doubtless
dated belief that neat blackstrap molasses is
more beneficial than Its refined derivative, us-
ually an ingredient to eggnog.

this year, from the joyous wassailing of the of-
fice party and the Christmas cocktail rout
from the hail-fellow knlps of the office bottle;
the festive puncheon of glogg, and the other
hybrid concoctions that seem to be served In
leaky cardboard containers.
It also means that I have been cheated of a

tion on the hangover will not be forthcoming.

the tongue softly coated in mink and the vi-
sions of RFC loans dancing softly in the skull.
But 'tis a grateful man I should be, Indeed,

horrid afterthoughts of pinching the hostess or
telling the boss exactly how his business should
be run.

s Propaganda Worth It?
By Stewart Alsop
t"he Editor,

it Sir:
WASHINGTON. The American propaganda
effort, for which very large sums are being
spent, Is a rather complete flop.
This may not be true within the Soviet orbit.
But it is certainly true in the areas of Europe
and the Middle East which this reporter has re-
cently visited.
Two experiences in France suggest the nature
of the failure.
In three weeks with the French army, this re-
porter was asked by at least a dozen French
soldiers why the Americans did nc* put on a
real propaganda drive, like the Russians.
As far as these men were concerned, there was
no such thing as American propaganda at

hardly a major propaganda victory.:
American foreign policy should be concerned,
not with the popularity I the United States,
but with the interests of the United States.
Which is something quite different.
And then again, by the very nature of the
situation, the United State U at a tremendous
disadvantage vis-a-vis the Soviet Union, ln the
propaganda field.
We have no equivalent of the dlscrollned Com-
munist parties which the Kremlin's propagan-
dists have at their beck and call in every coun-
Nor can a democracy employ the Soviet tech-
nique of the big lie. endlessly repeated until It
begins to sound like the truth.
Furthermore, it is sometimes difficult for Am-
erican propagandist even to tell the truth.
The way to reach the French worker is to
tell him that he is being exploited by an ir-
responsible, tax-dodging owner class which
la true; and advice him to emulate the Ameri-
can worker in organizing to demand and get
his fair slice of the national economic pie.
But one can Imagine the reaction to this sort
of propaganda line of certain Congressmen who
bold the purse strings. '
The margin of effectiveness of our official
propaganda could be increased if the effort were
divorced from the State Department, for the
State Department connection contributes to the
stuffiness and banality of American propaganda.
But ln fact the effectiveness of even the most
streamlined and tough-minded official American
propaganda organization can nevar be more
than marginal. The official label almost auto-
matically undermines an official propaganda ef-
This is why the main effort should clearly be
non-official and covert. .
It is almost universally agreed In Europe, for
example, that whereas the official and ex-
pensive Voice of America is largely a waste
of time, the unofficial Radio Free Europe has
had a real Impact. A determined, professional
effort ln the unofficial and covert field could
undoubtedly pay real dividends.
But even this sort of thing Is not going to
win the cold war Jor us. Above all, we ought
to forget the notion that vast "campaigns of
truth" are going to save us at cut ratas.
We shall be saved. If at all. by wist leadership
combined with real national power.
Leadership and national power, rather than
words, however eloquent, will make allies and
deter enemies.

Five small mushroom growers were found guilty of tax

in the Interim. J. B. Swayne had hired a smart tax attor-
ney, Monte Appel, friend of Ohio's Congressman Clarence
Brown of the Taft forces.
For more than a year, Appel held conferences, made delay,
ing moves with the Justice Department.
However, here is the pay-off. J. B. Swayne and Sons al-
ready had one strike against them. They had been found guilty
of selling misbranded mushrooms and been fined $1,100 in
Federal Court for violation of the Pore Food and Drug Act.
- According to S. Milton Griscom, president of the Mushroom
Institute, they made around $375,000 of illegal profits.

the Dlx Petroleum Company of Wichita, Kans.
He was indicted on four counts of income evasion unvoivthg
about $37,000 ln taxes, pleaded guilty and was given nmetydays
in Jail, plus two years suspended sentence.
The UB. Judge who let Smith off with this light sentence,
Arthur J. Mellott, the year before had sentenced two boys who
stole a Jalopy, and took it across a state line, to two years
ln jail.
Illustration No. e In January 1950, President Truman sent
a message to Congress urging full collection of Income taxes
and vigorouk-eroaecution of tax frauds. Shortly after that a call
from the White House stopped the prosecution of a tax fraud.
The fraud waa charged against a prominent Missourian,
Irving Sachs, operator of "shoe styles" in St. Louis.
His case had been sent by Internal Revenue to the Justice
Department where Lamar Caudle was on the verge of sending
It to the UJ3. Attorney in 8t. Louis for prosecution but suddenly
he got a call from the White House.
Caudle was recently fired by the White House for stoppinz
the prosecution of fraud cases Involving frienda. (*,.
But this time, it waa the White House which called Caud.
and asked that the case against Sachs be held up pending
a conference with Sachs' new attorney, A. Schwlmmer of Kan-
sas City.
On the surface, It would appear proper for the White House
merely to ask for a conference with an attorney.
However, Sachs knew the game of hiring the right lawyer.
Though he lived ln St. Louis, he had reached across the state
and hired a new Kansas City attorney who was close to Pre-
sident Truman's most Intimate Kansas City friend, Tom Evans.
After that the Sachs case waa held upon the ground that
a trial would seriously Injure his healthan excuse used re-
peatedly ln recent years to avoid criminal prosecution.
illustration No. 5Part of the Government's trouble in
cracking down on tax frauds is lenient or politically minded
Take the case of E. P. Mead, millionaire Texss bakery own.
er. Mead not only was wealthy, but he was pious. He had been
head of the Gideon Society which distributes Bibles in hotel
However, Mead apparently did not believe ln the gospel.
for he cheated the government out of $245,593.78, and then
relied not on his faith, but on a politically potent Texas attor-
ney, J. Percy Rice, to defend him.
At the trial, U.S. Judge T. Whltfield David/on asked Mead
this amazing question: ..-
"Would you rather pay the $20,000 fine, .o/1*11 000 to
$10,000 and take a short probated sentence?"
"I would rather pay the $20,000," promr-iy replied tax-
evader Mead and walked out of the court.
That Is why the current tax scandals have cut to deeply in-
to our national consciousness.
For when people see other people, who can afford to hire
Influence, dodge paying their share of the huge current coat of
government, it makes for unrest, dissension, and the under-
mining of Democracy.
Eventually it may lead to Communismaa it already has
ln Europe.


NAACP Official's Blast Death
Linked With Famed Rape Case
MIMS, Fla., Dec 27.(UP)NAACP official,
Harry T. Moore, 46, who was blasted to death in
his bed Christmas night had told his mother he
would sacrifice his life for his Negro race. Moore's
wife was seriously injured when the fatal bomb ex-
ploded almost beneath their bed.
Moore, state coordinator for the National As-
sociation fr the Advancement of Colored People and
a leading Negro educator of Florida, was the third
Negro to die in Florida by violence believed result-
ing from the famed Groveland rape case.
His death is the terrific explosion that wrecked
one side of his home in this little town half way
between Palm Beach and Jacksonville also was the
third racial flare-up in Florida within two months.
Tne Federal Bureau of Inves-
tigation and the State dispatch-
ed officers speedily to the scene
to help local officers in solving
the explosion, which occurred a-
bout 10:30 at night.
Moore died en route to a San-
ford hospital. His wife, Harriet,
49. a school teacher, suffered a
concussion and internal injuries.
She was given only a 50-50
chance of surviving.
Their daughter, Anna Rosa,
and his mother, Rosa, 71, were
asleep In an adjoining room and
mere not injured.
- Sheriff H. T. Williams and Cor-
oner Vassar B. Carlton said the
explosion which blasted through
the frame house In this Indian
River citrus community (was ap-
Karently caused by nitrogylcer-
te or some other chemical
stronger than dynamite.
"I tried to get him to quit the
NAACP. thinking something
might happen to him someday,"
his mother, Rosa Moore said.
"But he told me, 'I'm trying to do
what I can to elevate the Negro
"Every advancement comes by
the way of sacrifice," she said
her son told her recenUy. "If I
sacrifice my life or health I still
think it is my duty for my race."
Moore raised funds and solicit-
ed support for the Negroes
charged with raping a 17-year-
old white housewife at Grove-
land In 1949.
One of the Negroes was killed
by a posse and another, Samuel
Shepherd, was killed last month
by Sheriff Willis McCall of Lake
The sheriff shot Shepherd and
wounded the > third Grpveland
rape defendant, Walter Lee Ir-
vln, when they were handcuffed
together. ,
Irvin testified that the sheriff
deliberately shot them but a cor-
oner's Jury ruled the Incident
was in line of duty when the
Negroes attempted to escape.
The NAACP In New York said
Moore's murder was linked with
the Groveland rape case because
of his activities in behalf of the
defendants. .
And in Miami, two officials
said the incident may be con-
nected with the dynamiting* of
Carver Village for Negroes andi
Jewish and Catholic churches.
Burnett Roth of Miami Beach,
chairman of the coordinating
committee against bombings,
said the 10 attacks on churches
and Carver Village In Miami may
have set a pattern for terrorists
to follow In other parts of the
"That's the reason we urged
the FBI to Investigate,'1 he said.
"Hate movements work togeth-:
The NAACP urged Gov. Fuller I
Warren and the Department of
Justice to Investigate the killing

executive secretary of a political
organization sponsoring Negro

How would you play the South
hand at fix spades if you couldn't
see the Fast and West hands?
You win the king of clubs with
the ace, of course, and you take
the ace cf trumps. What next?
If you like the way you guess,
you can try to guess which de-
fender has the queen of hearts.
Even if you guess that wrong,
you will still make your contract
If the diamond finesse succeeds.
You might Improve your
chances somewhat by ruffing out
the jack of clubs and then tak-
ing the king of hearts followed
by a fini-sse of the heart jack. If
that finesse happened to lose to
a doubleton queen of hearts,
West would be end-played. He
would have to return a club or a
diamond, giving you the slam.
The best play In my opinion,
Is to lead the Jack of clubs at
the third trick and let West win
the trick. Just discard a low
heart from dummy as West takes
his queen of clubs.
What can West return: A dia-
mond gives you a free finesse,
after which you can ruff two
hearts In the dummy. A club lets
dummy ruff while you discard
the queen of diamonds.
West can give you trouble only
if he returns a heart. But then,
also, you are home If the queen
of hearts appears on the first,
second, or third round of that
suit. If it does, you will have four

"The discard pile was fresen,"
relates a correspondent, "and
contained wealth beyond the
dreams of avariceIncluding a
couple of natural canasta*. One
of my melds was three fours and
two deuces. I held two more
fours in my hand. My opponent
(friend wife) felt safe In discard-
ing a four to me.
"When T toolT the discarded
four, she claimed that my play
was Illegal. She said that I could
have made the canasta with the
cards that I held and that I was
therefore guilty of misrepresen-
tation. She was sure, that you
would agree with her.
"What about It?"
I have to rule against friend
wife. A player doesn't have to
make a canasta simply because
he happens to have the required
cards In his hand. If he keeps
the cards In his hand, he Is tak-
ing the risk that the opponents
will meld out suddenly, m which
case he will never make his ca-
nasta. In return for taking that
risk, he Is entitled to the big bo-
nanza when he wins the discard
This may be called misrepre-
sentation or deception or low
cunning, If you like. It Is never-
theless clever play and as legal
as a policeman's whistle.
My experience Is that women
can play just as craftily as men,
once they put their minds to it.
8o beware of friend wile when
she takes this lesson to heart and
starts to play tricks of her own.
qMy opponents melded out
and caught me with all four
black threes In my hand. Is there
a special penalty for this?
ANo. Each black three
counts only 5 points. All four to-
sther count only 20 points
here Is no special penalty of
any kind for black threes.
Q-^J. forgot to put a red three
down at my firs tturn. At my
next turn I did put it down. Was
I entitled to draw another card
irom the stock pile to replace It?
AYes. The usual procedure is
to make your normal draw from
the stock, put the red three
down, and then draw another
card to replace It. You are not
permuted to take the discard pile
at that turn.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Dec. 27
(UP) A city detective
charged Public Safety Comls-
sionr Eugene (Bull) Connor
and his tall, brunette secretary
today with having an Illicit'
tryst in a hotel room.
Warrants were sworn by De-
tective Henry Darnell, Who
raided a room at the TutwUer
Hotel last Friday night and
found the city official and Miss
Christina Brown, about iO, to-
Connor, long an outspoken
leader of the Southern State's
Bights political movement, said
he had been in the room only
five minutes and he and Miss
Brown hadn't done anything
wrong when Darnell started
pounding on the door.
But he admitted that he
didn't let Darnell in at once.
Darnell said Connor wouldn't
open up for 23 minutes.
Connor and Miss Brown were
accused of:
1) "Cohabiting or attempting
to cohabit" with a person other
than a lawful spouse.
2) "Having Or attempting to
have sexual intercourse" with a
person other than a lawful
3) Violating the city code by
"Jointly and privately occupying
a room at the Tutwller Hotel"
with a person other than a.
lawful spouse.
Assistant police chief E. H.
Brown said he would serve the
warrant against Connor him-
self, probably this afternoon.
Another officer would give
Miss Brown hers, he said.
Darnell said he forced his
way Into a room after getting
[ft tip that Connor and a wom-
an were there.
He said that charging Mbu
Brown was done "With deep
and sincere regret on my part,
but I feel that It would not be
In keeping with my duties as
an officer to enforce the laws,
irrespective of the persons in-
volved, if I kept silent."
Connor said he wont to the
room from a Christmas Party.
"No offense had been com-
mitted and I only regret that
H was dumb enough to walk
into the trap."
Darnell, however, said It re-
quired 23 minutes of knocking
and kicking at the door to get
inside the room.
"I should have opened the
door," Connor explained. "But
realizing what was being; done
to me, I called the clerk of the
hotel. Meanwhile.- Detective
Darnell was kicking on the
door. Darnell Mhtn violently
broke the transom and I open-
ed the door.
Connor, 17-year-old former
telegrapher and baseball gam*
broadcaster, has created a stir
several times since he became
police commissioner.
He was one of the 13 Alabama
delegates who walked out of
the 1948 Democratic national
convention over the Civil Rights
That same year Connor had
Sen. Glen Taylor (D-Ida.), then
campaigning on Henry Wal-
lace's party ticket, arrested for
attempting to go through a
Wegro entrance at a Progres-
!slve Party rally.

"Tales of Hoffmann"a rare

Sunday at the Bella Vista The-
ater for a full week's holiday run.
A recent review In film trade
journal summed up its charm as
It Is probably no undue exag-
geration to rate this grandiose
version of Jacques Offenbach's
"Tales of Hoffmann" as a "spec-
tacle" In the real sense of the
word, for rarely has the screen
been filled With a more overpow-
ering conglomeration, of, >coJor.
music and ballet.
Written, produced and direct-
ed once again by the art-minded
scam of Michael Powell and Em-
mie Presaburger, "Tales of Hoff-
man" undoubtedly rates as m
worthy successor to "The Red
Shoes" even though a direct
comparison must end with the
ballet sequences the originality
of the sets and the rich use of
Technicolor at its best. The film
has practically no spoken dia-
logue: it is-. In fact, a rather
faithful translation to the screen
of the Offenbach work, with
ballet added for magnificent vis-
ual effect. "Tales'' is danced and
sung throughoutto perfection
and if it tells a story, this is
ly may find the proceedings %
little tiresome to spots.

in the first half as they came off
the floor with a 17-18 advantage
tg Cristobal. The thtrd quarter
proved the eventual downfall for
the Working Boys, as they went
for a good seven minutes with-
out a score. CHS built up a good
cushion during this time to lead
by 18 points going Into the fourth
quarter. ..
This was when the fireworks
started. In the first two minutes
and 44 seconds of the fourth pe-
riod Capalbo couldn't miss and
he almost single-handedly
brought his team up to within
four points of the Tigers. With
only a minute and a half to go in
the game, the score was all tied
at 38 each. Wilson then popped
one in and the Tigers were able
to hold the lead. Noel Gibson

the entire fourth quarter, set up

opportunities the Blue Jays had,

like sure shots taken by the Ath-.

that he was able to do it. They
tried only two shots In the entire

Prank McKinney wonld make and shake oar beads In astonlah-
Sent and say, kind of serry like, that the dark haired, affable
liher out of Indianapolis, wasn't very bright. This was when he
was operating the Pittsburgh Pirates. \
There probably never was a front office man who made so
many sucker deals and poured so much money down the drain
in such a short stretch of time-and maybe that's why it comes
as a surprise to read In the.newspapers how really,smart he is
with money after all. -*-
True, there are some nasty Washington Republicans who are
asking embarrassing questions, which Is a way they seem to have
these days, but even they have got to admit It takes a genius to
make $8JW0 profit on a $100 of stock investment That's even
better than Ponzl ever did.
yfmt happened, of course, is that we didn't get to see the
real McKinney operate in baseball. He couldn't count on his old
political pal, Frank McHale, and there wasn't much Washington
>uld-dofor-him, and nobody-had ererwarned htm of'BtanCh
Rickey, anyway. When the leader of Mr. Truman's Fair Dealers
looks back on those days he mutt, shudder and wonder how he
ever escaped with a shirt on his back. (It must not have been
Rickey's alae.)
Rickey was over In Brooklyn at the time and he had an lrre-
rtstjblefesclnetlon for McKinney who couldn't Just wait to be
taken.' In three years McKinney gave up wouacrful players like
preacher Roe and Billy Cox. plus some $00,000; he was.eyen buy-
lng ball player* from Rickey his own manager didn'twant.
One weekend McKinney came back from Flatbush with a
f50,000 outfielder. Marvin Rackley, In a beribboned surprise pack-
age and his manager, Billy Meyer, groaned: "Maybe if they preak
ha arm they can keep him out of Rickey's1 office?"
Rickey's Brooklyn contract was such that ht got 10 per cent
of ail player deals. In addition to a whopplnc salary, and, of
course, he wasn't going out of his way to discourage business,
and besides he wasn't rushing McKinney McKinney was rushing
him. Altogether an ideal situation.
But before McKinney developed his mad lntatuatlon for Rickey
he had a flirtatious affair with tne Boston owners who were most
unromantically known as "The Three Little Steam Shovels." They
got what they wanted and cast hln, aside like a tattered rag.
What they wanted was Bob Elliott who h*d been wfth the
Pirates for eight years, alternating between the outfield and the
infield. To get him the Shovels handed over the veteran Billy
Herman who had been taking lessons to managing for a long
timo. (They were going to give him his uncoodlPoaal release any-
This deal turned out to be much more horrible than It figur-
ed, really. Unaccountably, Herman flopped miserably as a man-
ager and was no help to the Pirates otherwise, because he got In
only 15 games. On the other hand Elliot, now a fixture at third,
had his greatest year and won the most valuable, despite the fact
his club didn't win the flag. It Isn't often the most valuable U
won under such circumstances.
Next year, which was '48, McKinney, having acquired a new
manager in the meantime, turned in his distress, aa 0 many
other trusting souls had done befte him, to Brother Rickey for
comfort and guidance, two commodities the good man Is never
without and which he charitably prices to meet the purse of the
stricken. _
The deal for Roe and Cox must rank with the most sagacious
Rickey ever made. To get them he persuaded McKinney to take
Hal Gregg. Vic Lombard! and Dixie Walker Only Walker was
eut in big league mold and he had been ready for the dry clean-
ers for two years when the Pirates got him.
The Klrby Hlgbe deal was more to Rickey's liking because it
involved a neat, attractive stack ot large, coarse greenbacks For
Hlgbe, Hank Behrman, Dixie Howell, Gene Manch and Cal Mc-
Llsh McKinney paid out $226,000,', If you think that was a fast
Rickey deal, how about this one* Stan Roleck and Eddie Stevens
to McKinney for $200,000.
It should be noted that McKinney was not sustaining these
setbacks alone; he had a couple of partners, including John Gal-
breath, the Ohio realtor, and they finally had *o call him in for
a showdown. Either he bought them out. or they'd buy him.
By them McKinney was probably beginning to question whe-
ther the Rickey treatments were good for what ailed him, any-
way, for he readily sold out and next we heard of him he had
been named chairman of the Democratic National Committee and
the nasty Republicans were asking him bow come he could make
a $800 per eent profit on a wartime stoek deal, end what was
the gimmick.

Coba Claims Victory
On Release of Five
'Quetzal' Crewmen
HAVANA, Dec. 27 (UP)
The Cuban Minister of State,
Aureliano Sanchez Arango, de-
clared today that the release
of the five Cuban sailors of
the ship "Quetzal" from Doml-
can imprlsoment, constituted a
victory for the Cuban Chancel-
lory's policy throughout the
tense international incident.
Sanchez' statement coincided
with the arrival Wednesday by
private plane of the five sailors
who received Dominican Presi-
dent Rafael Trujlllo's official
Christmas Day pardon from a
20-year sentence meted out on
charges of subversive activities
against Dominican Republic.
Sanchez charged that Domi-
nican courts lacked competence
to try and sentence lfie*n be-
cause the Dominican authorities
exercised arbitrary Jurisdiction.

Then there was poor taxlcab
driver James Deeds, of Dee
Molnes, la. He was helping a
passenger unload packages from
the car when he backed Into a
passing car and lost the seat of
hi3 pants. The last he saw, that
vital section of his clothing was
heading south on a door handle.

And poor Mrs. Catherine Mee-
nan of Boston, who was minding
her own business in her second-
floor apartment. In the street a
car hit a pedestrian, knocked
off his shoe and sent it sailing
into Mrs. Meenan's window. Ix.
hit her on the head, inflicting
scalp wounds.
Poor James Swootan, a steeple-
jack of Richmond, Ind., wound
up in the hospital from a f alL
Only it wasn't from a steeple-
he fell off a bar stool.
Then then was the poor Flor-
ida East Coast Railroad which
made the mistake of letting one
of its freight trains tramp into
Ernest Benson's sturdy auto-
mobile in West Palm Beach, Pla.
Damage: 18 loaded freight cars
upset, 1000 feet of track torn
up, 1000 cross ties ruined, $50,000
in damage altogether. Benson
was unhurt, although his car
was "banged up some."

Poor Uttle Stanley Willoughby,
eight; of Portland, Ore., grabbed
onto the back of a three-ton
steam roller. The monster sud-
denly reversed, knocked Stanley
down and passed over his legs
and hips. Fortunately, the road
was still being laid, and the
boy was neatly imbedded in soft
asphalt and escaped with only
slight injuries.
Nature, as well as man-made
machines, caused some accidents
in '51. Driver Joseph Sylvester,
of Logansport, Ind., blamed his
accident on ice cream"I ate so
much Ice cream that I cut loose
with a big burp and lost control
of my car."
And David Quinn, Jr., of Ed-
wardsburg, Mich., had a terri-
fishing, when he was attacked
bya four-pound pickerel. It took
Quinn and two friends several
minutes to unfasten the fish
from its grip on the fisherman's

CAIRO, Dec. 27 (UP) Police
fired over the heads of demon-
strators in Cairo today as stu-
dents rioted for the second
straight day against the appoint-
ment of two pro-British advisers
to King Farouk.
The police proclaimed a state
of emergency in both Cairo and
Alexandria, and the Egyptian
government closed down all uni-
versities In both cities.
In Cairo the police broke up
the students' demonstration by
marching 10 abreast up the
street firing rifle shots into the

Britain withdraw troops from
the Suez Canal Zone and the Su-
dan, Britain answered by send-
ing 90,000 men into the disputed

Britain has stubbornly refused
to evacuate the area, held under
a treaty which Egypt abrogated,
and has fought back sternly a-
galnst terrorism..
British diplomats hoped the
two appointments may be the

Farouk named Hafez Aflfi Pa-
sha and Abedel el Fattah Amr

advisers to the king. They hold
positions separate from the
elected cabinet Which is respon-
sible to parliament.
The appointments immediate-
ly touched off rioting among the
extreme nationalist elements In
Cairo and Alexandria.
