This business of writing columns, at which I have had long
and varied experience, sets ofl strange reactions.
Eliminating letter-writers who are advanced mental cases,
who want information, geek publicity or volunteer to do the job
better than the professional can, and getting down to the pan-
ners and the pralsers, many humans Bitterly resent or extra-
vagantly worship the written wordand those who commit it.
In the underworld there Is a classification for certain men
and women, who are known as "cop-fighters." They may be timid
with shoe clerks or janitors, but they see flashes of red shoot-
ing from a blue uniform, and they not only resist, but attack,
That is reflected in a measure ay aa many who, perhaps
with frustrated longings to Impress their opinions on the
public, resent those who have the opportunities which have
ended them.
They snarl and sneer, question the sources of statements,
the aecaracy of data, the grammar the form, the spirit,
and, above all, the motives.
"How much did so-and-so pay you under the table for that
', That is a recurrent perennial.
"Is that guy your brother-in-law?"
One cannot turn out places forever without sometimes saying
friendly things about others. Yet such copy is suspect to a large
segment of the population.
But these doubters are fewer than the showerers of kudos
and encouragement.
f Those, too, probably, are persons who have had a yen to write
but never made it. And by transference, or projection, or some-
thing, they feel they are getting into the act by setting up com-
radely relations with one who has a by-line.
They not only seek harmonious penetration by taking the
trouble to sit down, write at length and post their letters, but
they want to meet us In person.
Thuogh I am grateful for such enthusiasm. I do feel that I
should not let it extend too far Into my personal life, of which I
hfeve little enough.
Fan-mail Is gratifying. No one outlives his pleasure in
getting it. I gladly send out autographs and get writer's
cramp signing the fly-leaves of my books. In my library
are a number of volumes inscribed to me, which I value high-
ly. I am a fan, too.
Bat I have stopped drinking, so offers in that direction
Ho not attract me. I can partake of lunch and dinner on
only so many days in any week.
Since I write at times about crime and law-breakers. I draw a
tot of mail from crooks, ex-crooks, men who have done time, re-
tired policemen and specialists in types of larceny and mayhem,
who want to further enlighten meacross a table or at a bar.
For years I went out of my way to spend time with them. Some
did vield material.
Aiter "The Big House" was published it seemed to me every
con, when he got out of the stir, beat a path to my door to give
me the inside, the lowdown.the real McCoy.
Thev didn't want anything; only to pour Into my ear their
Individual tales and, their viewpoints on prisons and those in
them. Here and tbere I gleaned a rain of something new. But,
ver al;. their talcs were -rather monotonously the same.
Once you encourage one of these men. they are your .
trien** forevertoo friendly. They meet others of their kind
and that gives them new topics which they feel, in a kindly
way, they should transmit forthwithand i personally. In
whispers, with furtive glances all around, as their missions
are all sacredly confidential, of course.
Whenever I do an anecdote on the Canada Kid, the dips
track me down to tell me the new ones and recent all the old
ones of their ancient craft.

When the Wage Stabilization
Board asked for twenty mil-
lion dollars, Mr. Truman's own
budget director slashed this to
sixteen million before the bid
was put up to Congress.
Then the Congressional gen-
iuses, who could slash billions
of other projects, stripped this
down to nine million. Finally.
Mr. Truman found two and
a half million more and the
agency, which is at the very
heart of our Intricate labor-
management relationship got
all of eleven and a half mil-
lion to operate across country.
Result is that it has virtual-
ly no effective staff. Its poli-
cies, some of which were ex-
Dected to be clearly defined last
December (pensions, for
ample), won't be discussed
weeks to come.
Several millions of skill-
ed workers are bitter. The
CIO Oil Workers' Union
plans to strike the big re-
fineries. John Lewis has
had his District presidents
in his basement conference
room at national head-
ouarters for days and
is waiting only for the
steel crisis to develop be-
fore he warns of a coal
strike. And, of course, Ft-
insinger fully expects a
steel strike.
Behind the scenes but not
for long there's a bitter civil
war between the labor, industry
and government members and
Among these are some pf the
land's most responsible labor
leaders. Their charges

They charge that the board
Is deliberately "dragging Its
feet." In a methodical policy of
"delay and inaction."
One of these union chiefs is
John Livingston, vice-president
of the CIO's Auto and Aircraft
Union. Today he told me he
believed that the board and
the government had decided
that the most "effective way
to keep wages down was to

NEW YORK. Every time I start to snort at
the self-excusing of the backslid Communists
who have hit the sawdust trail and now shout
hosannah for the right, I have to jog my me-
mory a little bit to a time when the whole
Commie concept was presented as a noble
It hasn't been so long, either, since it was
highly fashionable among the young "thinkers"
to frown on fresh laundry in favor of ol' Maesa
Back in my tenderer time it seemed to me
that half the people I knew in college were
waving a copy o Kapital and cursing its Ameri-
can equivalent in triple-syllabled words.
The early trail blazers had the most succulent
Intellectual baits for their hooks. I can recall
being slightly ashamed of the clodlike, personal
dumbness which so afflicted me that I wanted
to work for myself and get rich on my own ef-
I was too stupid, I guess, to glom onto tha
basic sedition which wore the frock of liberal-
ism and a lot of other isms.
It can be a little frightening to skip back and
check on how beautifully the early prophets
worked, and how popular were all the causes
that attracted the little gimmicks of the capital
The big Russian revolution was a couple of
years away when Margaret Sanger publisher her
earth-twister on sex, "What Every Girl Should
Know" in 1916. But even her primer on na-
tural function, as groundwork for her feverish
pitch for birth control, carried its little economic
lecture as a summation.
I have here a little Haldeman-Jullus Blue
Book copy of Miss Sanger's first exploration of
the blrdses and the beeses.
She winds up her early shocker with the fol-
lowing: "in completing this discussion I cannot
refrain from uttering Just a word about the re-
lation of the entire subject (sex) to the econo-
mic problem... The more we look into the evils
of the day the more we realize that the whole
structure of present-day society is built upon a
rotten and decaying foundation. Until the evils
of capitalism are swept away, there is no hope
for young working girls to Uve a beautiful Ufe
during their girlhood.
"There is no hope for boys or girls of the
laboring classes to build up strong or sturdy
bodies. There is no hope that a woman can Uve"
in the family relation and have chUdren with-
out sacrificing every vestige of individual devel-
"There Is no hope for a strong race as long
as venereal diseases exist. And they wUl exist
until women rise in one big sisterhood to fight
this capitalist society which compels a woman to
serve as a sex Implement for man's use."
That is a fir sample of the steady indoctrina-
tion that'has chewed at this generation, which
I call my own since actual babyhood.

Here is another painful example of how the Army wastes the
taxpayers' money the story of Commerce international Inc
which got a $3,400,000 contract from the Rock Island arsenal for
reconditioning tanks.

contract despite the fact that it had no experience in recondition-
ing tanks, and despite the fact that It had few faculties except

The Army refused to pay. Nevertheless Fassoulls' counterclaim

But here Is the real Joker.
This column is able to reveal that Fassoulls was awarded the
$,400,000 contract by the Army against the advice of the Army's
Inspector General.
The Inspector General had checked Commerce International,
found it was Involved In some Juicy deals of war surplus to Na-
tionalist China.
One deal that didn't go through was for J9 Mustangs, which.
Commerce International was trying to sell to China at double the
normal cost.
The contract was canceled when the Chinese found the Planes
to be little better than Junk.
Commerce International was also Involved in smuggling air-
plane parts to Formosa. But when the Army confronted Fassoulls
with this record, he blandly claimed it was Communist propagan-
da, argued he had gone into the business of supplying Nationalist
China not for profit but for patriotic reasons.
He even made the amazing statement that he had supplied
Chiang Kai-shek with $12,600,000 worth of military equipment for
less than $2.000,000. ~. ,
He failed to explain how he could afford to take the difference,'.
between sia.S00.00fi and $2,000.000 as a loa*.
Despite this record, the Army Ignored the Inspector General

In the 30t, particularly in the impoverished

dirty capitalists was so strong as to monopolize
a great chunk of the "serious" or "problem"

cide or dog-extermination had the Commie cre-

enough to stick to the young brain was seized

Communist creed.

Another Damn Crisis
By Joseph and Stewart Alsop
WASHINGTON. The French are quietly go-
ing broke, and no one seems to know Just what
to do about it.
This seems to be the best way to sum up the
newest crisis, in this city surfeited with crises.
The facts, as usual, are repellently technical.
But the essentials of the situation are simple
enough. The rock bottom of the French finan-
cial system is the reserve of hard currency, less
than a biUlon in gold and dollar, which is used
as backing for the franc.
For various reasons, including the strains of
rearmament and the balance of European pay-
ments, the French treasury is scraping this rock
The French experts themselves believe that,
unless some way out is found, it wUl be neces-
sary in a matter of four or five weeks to make
an impossible choice.
Either the government can dip into the re-
serve, with fatal effects on the already enfeebled
franc. Or the whole French armaments pro-
gram can be gutted. If the choice is between
economic disaster or stopping rearmamnet, the
latter course will be chosen.
This means, of course, that the whole NATO
program, which Is squarely based on the French
defense effort, is In serious danger.
The American experts believe the danger can
be dealt with somehow largely by spending as
quickly as possible the $300,000.000 alloted for
defense purposes In France this year.
A Junior State Department official. Henry La-
boulsse. has been sent to France to investigate
the possiblUties of keeping the situation glued
together, and no doubt in the end the gluing
operation wUl be made to work temporarily in
one way or another.
Yet the fact that this sort of imminent danger
which three or four years ago would have
had this city in am uproar U now treated
whoUy aa a matter of course, says something
rather imrjortant about the world situation and
the current American response to It.
In fact, an increasing number of the highest
American policy makers have been having a
hard new look at the whole range of the Ameri-
can security program, and they are coming la
the view that there is something radicaUy wrong
with it. ~. ,
Congress willing, the United States will be
spending something close to $70 billion for
straight mUitary purposes this year, including
appropriations to the Armed Services, the ex-
panded atomic program, base construction, and
exclusively miUtary overseas aid.
n contrast, only about $2.5 billion is being
asked for economic-political purposes. In order
to deal with a whole series of economic-poUtical
soft spots of which that In France is only a
sample. And the Congress is honing its knife
to cut even this amount.
There are. in fact, two dangers to our security.
One is the danger of Communist military ag-
Riession, to which the aggression in Korea. In-
vited by Louis A. Johnson's disarmament plan,
awakened the country.
The other is the danger of economlc-poUtlcal
collapse at some key point in the world. This
danger stUl exists, perhaps even more than in
the days of the MarshaU Plan, but since Korea
we have increasingly tended to shove it under
the rag.
It is easy enough to show that this is so. The
Anglo-American alliance Is in appalling danger
for purely economic reasons.
The stringent sacrifices now being Imposed on
the British people after ten years of austerity
might quite conceivably bring down the Church-
ill government, and bring In a new cabinet in- I
eluding strong representation of the professional
The Anglo-American aUiance, the hard core of I
strength in the Western World, could hardly
survive a Bevanite British government.
The countries of the Middle East might go
down one after the other, like a row of nine-
oins, even within the next twelve months.
Yet the United States still has no real policy
in the Middle East, and we cannot have a policy
in the Middle Bast unless we are willing and
able to spend money there.
committee to investigate the tactics of his buddy, Joe McCarthy.
"I don't know what to tell my daughter when she hears all
these things the columnists and commentators are calling me,"
the Senator from Idaho complained.
Looking around the committee for a sympathetic face, he
noticed Sen. Margaret Chase Smith of Maine.
"Why, I'm no more biased in favor of McCarthy than Mrs.
Smith'' he said.
NOTEMrs. Smith is the author of the famous "statement
of conscience" opposing McCarthys smear tactics, and had favor-
ed an investigation of McCarthy from the very first.
Ambassador Alan Kirk, retiring as Ambassador to Moscow,
has handed in a sensational farewell report that a deadly feud
has broken out In the Politburo over who Is to succeed Stalin.
Kirk reports that Molotov and Malenkov, the Soviet produc-
tion boss, are openly vying for power and lining up support with-
in the Politburo for themselves. t
Stalin is reported enjoying the spectacle and to far has made
no move to Intervene or designate his successor.
Winner of this grim struggle undoubtedly will be the man who
gets the support of Marshal Berla, head of Russia's secret police.
As yet, Berla has stayed out of the fight.
Communist Barata? The American delegation to the U. N,
alarmed at the threat of Communist attack on Burma, has ap-
pealed secretly to the Jittery Burmese government to have it ask
the United Nations to send a watchdog commission to Burma im-
mediately in order to guard against invasion.
Some U. S. delegates, however, think It's already too late and
that, by midsummer, Burma will be another Russian satellite.
Sities la Soviet The Russians are having Joe McCarthy
scares too.
The Kremlin is so alarmed over military Information leaking
to us that it has banned German servants from working for Rus-
sians in East Germany, has built high fences around its airfields,
has added new restrictions on American military attaches behind
the Iron Curtain, has even cut off nonclasslfled technical maga-
zines from Western sources.

: answer I'm afraid well have to attend the Valentine Dante this
Friday at the Hotel Ttvoll, from 7:30 to 11:00. The theme will
' be valentines, but quite a different kind of valentines promises

"I had a letter from O. A.
(Davis) after that and he said
the decision rested with the Air
Force. He expected to be home
for Christmas," she said.
"If I could feel he lost his Ufe
for some good reason, I could
feel better about it, but this is a
war without reason,'' she said.
"I would like to ask for a full-
scale Investigation of why he
was left in Korea."
Davis was led to believe, she
said,'that Air Force policy
provided automatic return to
the V. S. for pilots after they
shot down their fifth enemy
Her husband was also an ace
in World War II combat against
propeller-driven planes. He had
shot down 14 planes In Korea,
three bombers in addition to
the 11 Jets.
"He should never have been
sent overseas," Mrs. Davis said.
"He would have been more
valuable over here, teaching
younger fellows to fly.
'I think it's a, pretty sorry
method when they ask so much
of one person,"
Davis recently wrote his
wife that "something must be
done. Things cant go on like
they are. We are losing so
many planea and so many
men. The Migs are so much
better than the Sabres."
Mrs. Davis said she received
a letter shortly after her hus-
band reached Korea to begin
hia string of air victories.
It said: "The war is censored
and no one knows what's going
on over here. They are not try-
ing to win the war. All they
want to do Is hold and let people
get killed."
"Those were his exact words,"
she said. "Ill never forget It."
Mrs. Davis became hysterical
when she received the telegram
about her husband, she was
taken across town to her mo-
ther's home, along with her
children, Mary Margaret, seven
years old, and George Andrew
III, 20 months.'
She was calm but crying softly

Australia To Gi v Up Organizing Of '56 Olympics
Argentina Seems Likely
Candidate To Take Over
By United Press
OSLO, Norway, Feb. 12 It was learned offi-
cially today lhat AwtvcUa intends to waive the
honor of organizing the 1956 Olympic Games and
Argentina appeared a likely candidate to pick up
the honor of paying the check. *
the sources said the Internationt 1 Olympic
Committee has received "unofficial" word from
Melbourne that due to organizing difficulties and
the lack of funds Australia would not oppose an
I. O. C. action changing the Bite of the summer
The question will be discussed at a plenary IOC
meeting today when Australian delegate Lewis
Buxton reports to the congress on the progress
made by the Melbourne organizing committee.
The possibility of a substitute site loomed as
another hot issue of the I. 0. C. session added to the
East German and Red China demands for entry in
the Helsinki Games.
One IOC official said Buenos Aires, which lost
the bid as host to the 1956 tournament by 30 votes
to Melbourne's 31, should have the honor. He added
that the Argentines are technically ready and fin-
ancially willing to hold the Games.____________

the memory of one
country's greatest c
Abraham Lincoln.
The occasion is the 143rd an-
niversary of the birth of the
man who, by the force of his
deep-seated faith In the Indivi-
dual man. earned the respect of
men throughout the world.
In the few short words "Gov-
ernment of the people, by the
people, and for the people,"
spoken at the dedication of the
Gettysburg Cemetery, Lincoln
placed his name forever in the
rolls of the great spokesmen
for man's freedom.
Hia beginning were quite
humble. He had little schooling,
but what education he did have
was mostly his own work. And
yet he grew up a great states-
man and steered his country
through a crisis."
The leader in Czechoslovakia's
fight for independence, Thomas
Masaryk, writing in 1818 to U.
S. President Woodrow Wilson,
said of the principles outlined
in the Gettysburg address:
"Lincoln formulated these
principles which were .to rule
the internal policies of the
United States.

"Abraham Lincoln Is one of1 small, actual equality exists;
that all just power of govern-

consent of the governed."
"These, you say, are the prin-
ciples In which American have
been bred, and which are to
constitute the foundation of
world democracy."
Just as Lincoln himself grew
in stature during his lifetime,
so his memory has grown ever
larger In the minds of the Unit-
ed States people through the
Today, he Is often recalled as
"The Saviour of His Country."
This is in part the result of
the calm, patient and under-
standing way he steered the na-
tion through the crisis of the
ClvU War.

It is more the result of the
fact that the years show ever
more clearly how he always
stood as the champion of
liberty and freediom.
His own Ufe illustrates the
principles for which Lincoln
stood. He was born of a poor
family, and spent his early
youth on the frontier of the
expanding young nation, where
the advantages of civilization
were almost completely lacking.
His education was largely the
result of his own patient ef-
forts, often against great dif-
Yet, despite odds that might
easily have led him Into dis-
illusionment, he became not on-

country, but a statesman of
world stature.
And he achieved this high
position while always eon-

servant of his fellow men,
rather than their leader.
His memory is being honored
