I thought he would be jittery

This is the union used by the

This is the union from which one

So if there is no hope that the

from the rank-and-file. And that's

This tax. ln turn. Is one reason
why the gas-oil lobby has so much
money to spend on influencing Con

than any other industry.
In general, gas-oil political mon
ey can be divided into two parts,
1. Donations from old-established
companies which go chiefly to
2. Donations from wildcatters,
which used to go to the Democrats

Mary Pew Myrln, $6,250 grand to total
tal total $27,250.
This is not as much as the Pews
usually contribute to the Republi
cans in a presidential year, and
some of their donations may have
been overlooked or unreported in
various splinter committees. In the
1940 election, for instance, the
Pew dumped a grand total of
$108,525 into Republican coffers.
Another great oil family, the Mel Meltons
tons Meltons of Pittsburgh, tossed the fol following
lowing following amounts into the Eisenhow Eisenhower

The new technique for political
contributions is to spread them
around among different political
committees in different states. This
gets under the wire regarding any
violation of the law, since it's ille illegal
gal illegal for any one person to contri
bute more than $5,000.
However, if you contribute to
different committees such as the
Republican National Committee an
the Citizens for Eisenhower, it does
n't count..Nor does it count if the
money comes from a cousin or a ;-
sister "or an aunt, ine list ot im
Pont relatives contributing to the
GOP, for instance, is far too long
to be recorded here.

BUMBLING FATHER OP TV IS

is anybody else being made a
bit sick by the marriage relation

snows portray it?
You Know, the well-intentioned
but slow-witted and bumbling hus husband
band husband who is led around by the
nose and is forever being rescued
by his practical, understanding, in intelligent
telligent intelligent wife? V
It's bad enough to keep feeding
that idea of marriage to adults.
I But what of the kids who are cut
ting their teeth on TV who are
growing up chanting singing com-
mencals instead of Mother Goose;
Isn't it bound to enter their
young minds that Mom and not
Pop is the real head of the fam
Aren't they sure to take It for
granted that Mom is the really
smart parent and that whatever
side she is on is sure to be right?
With TV ii a pattern, whv
shouldn't they believe that Dad is
a guy to be outsmarted, outwitted
and generally put in his place if he
has any idea -that doesn't meet with
full family approval?
If .TV is going to keep on giving
us family situation comedies why
don't thy vary the formula now
Wouldn't the TV audience be able
to understand tne snocK of occa
sionally seeing a family play in
which Papa is something more
than a big overgrown kid who
couldn't stay out of trouble for 30
The producers might just try us
and see. They might even find that
a husband and father who is a
real man instead of a good-natured
moron would be a welcome change.
There must be an awful lot of
women as well as men who are
tired of seeing TV husbands and
fathers led around by the nose.
