I have been reading a number of articles In the local press
. and the Mail Box about Rulus Lovelaay, who is the leader of
a labor organization m the Canal Zone, the American Federa Federation
tion Federation of Government Employes.
I would like to advise the members of his organization to
drop him, or to keep him quiet. His position and statements
are only creating ill will and labor unrest among Canal Zone
workers. This is a serious matter, detrimental to good relation relationships
ships relationships between Panama and the United States, and contrary to
the wishes of President Taft. who once stated that Americas
policy In Panama is the mirror oi her policy in Latin America,
This statement should not be forgotten.
The attitude of Rulus Loveiady is not going to solve the
problems ol the US-raters. He should realize that the local local-raters

would like to remind him of some of the barriers he has placea
The American Federation of Government Employes is on
: record as tar back as 1947 as favoring legislation to give citi citizens
zens citizens of the United States job preference in Panama Canal
skilled, semi-skilled and otflce positions.
This same resolution was adopted by an AFL convention
during the war, and presented to Senator McCarran for in introduction

amendment, hangs over the head of local-raters
It is one of -the most selfish pieces of legislation to reach
"the halls of the United States congress. It could mean the end
of skilled Jobs for local-raters.
As for eligibility of Panamanians to take the U.S, Civil
Service examination, I refer to the hearing of the House Civil
Service committee in Washington, March 21, 1947.
AFL representatives Burns and Hushing In their testimony
etrongly opposed the liberal ruling of the U.S. Civil Service
Commission, in a most narrow-minded and chauvinistic manner.
I quote from the record.
Murray: "It seems to me there are a considerable number
of contradictions in the testimony presented here this morning
(Dy AFL spokesman). I think the security of the United States
is unaffected by letting Into Civil Service examination those
who are not citizens of the United -States. The whole question,
it seems to me, was answered by the people who spoke for
themselves. There are now twenty-odd thousand aliens employ employed

SYDNEY (UP) -. The Amer

Australasian passenger trade this

Americans have had in service
only an occasional 12-passenger
In an abrupt about-face, the new
American ships are designed to
attract the "carriage trade." Un Unlike

are being built as either tourist

Orient Line fares for the San
Francisco-Sydney trip range from
$768 to $290, while the comparative

booking agents say the tariffs will
be too expensive for the average
Shipping interests here deny that
the Matson ships will start a price price-cutting

the American competition too

his company "welcomed"' the Mat Mat-son

For their comfort, travelers on

Polo Grounds Hold
IIY Farmers!, Sure
ITHACA, N. Y. (UP) The
number of commercial farmers in
New York state is declining each
year, but it's because of more ef efferent
ferent efferent farming methods.
Prof. S. W. Warren of Cornell
University believes that by 1966,
all the commercial farmers in the
state can be accommodated in the
55,000-seat Polo Grounds in New
York City instead of the 67,000-seati
Yankee stadium as at present.
The farmers will be fewer but
more efficient, getting more per
acre per man. Warren pointed out.
He also predicts 260 eggs sold per
hert in 1956- by the upper 10 per
cent of the farmers, compared
with 250 today.

Kansas State College.
Dean Arthur W. Weber gave In Increases

by improvements in seed, fertilizer
and machinery, as the basic rea

He said the farm population has
decreased nearly one-third since
1935 mainly because mechaniza

labor on farms.
Looking ahead to 10 years from
now, Weber made this forecast in
"In 1965. we will have 15 per

the United States than we have
now. The average work-week may
be shortened by 10 hours te a 30-

is expected to increase by 40 per

may ne up 30 per cent.

He said the basis of present
farm problems is the fact that
farm production has risen faster
than population and markets, with
the result of accumulating surplus surpluses

"That is what has been happen happening

adding that the result is seen in
declining farm income, lower farm
prices, higher production costs and
increasing competition in the for foreign

The dean explained that although
an increase in population has1
meant a bigger market for farm
products, and increasing incomes
have meant more mony with
which to buy the products, total
farm production went up 44 per
cent while total v. s. population
increased only 33 per cent
Competition from synthetics and
changes in tastes and eating habits
have added to the problems and
have strengthened the market for

Weber said people now are eat eating

recently when ft wasn't on his way to the bank jnd henee was
in no mad fush. t wondered if the millionaire hillbilly besides
golf, he's in shirts, shoes, hats fishing tackle, real estate and
how-to literature) would mind standing still for a very personal
question, "Of course not," he said,
"Well, what in hell happens to you when you play In the
National Open?" 1W
Snead, now 43, a local winter resident, affable and witty In
the red clay manner, said:
"Why I thought you knew. Most sports writers do. They
say I can't putt, can't think, lose my temper, don't like It when
the going gets rough and that I got a phobia, or is it a fixation?
That gives you a wide choice to pick If om.'.' .
"Which one would you pick?"
Uneua turned thoughtful Hi hadn't been bitter in list'
tng the flaws the critics -found in his play. Rather, this
appeared to.be his way of trying to be lighthearted about
, a subject that has undoubtedly given him mor concern than
he cares to admit. ,
"A jellow always rembembers the short putts he miss
i ed," he sflid finally, so maybe that's why t don't win. 1
hate to admit it, but the short ones do seem to give more
trouble than the long ones.
. "I've been runner-up in the Open four times, and had
winning chances in several others. In some of those I play play-.

SO well. :: ": .'
"In order to win any kind of golf championship you got to
be good and lucky at th same time. I'm probably kidding
; mysalf, but I don't feel I've had that combination clicking for
me very often. I cto have one minor resentment. .It's the popu
lar impression that I always beat myself. The fact is, there
have been times when some powerfully fine golf beat me."

of batting out a personality piece on the former caddy when
Ralph Gudahl, a good hour and a half later, came lntwith 281.
It Just so happened this was the lowest score Never made in an
Open championship here or abroad, up to that time.
In going back over the scores, it was discovered that
Snead had three-putted three green in playing the final It

need to look further for an explanation. : ;
Sure, you don't win many Open championships by three three-putting.

monotonous habit of beating 2tl the first time they thow
up for the most demanding test in golf.
Because of the circumstances under which he was beaten
the possibility that Snead Suffered an emotional experience
that tenas to reduce his effectiveness in the Open (and only
the Open) has often been suggested. v
'How about itV I asked him.
' "I hope I got sense enough not to worry about something
that happened so long ago," he said and clearly meant it.
And yet. on his own, he began to describe in detail the
thots that beat him. There was the 60-footer Guldahl holed at
the elgh:h hole on the final round, the 30-footer at the ninth,
the 12-footer at the 10th. The recovery shot he had made at
the 16th. How he reached the green from the "rough at the 18th.
1 I was astonished. He might have seen Guldahl hole out
at the 18th, but that's about all. Indeed, I had taken up a large
part of his time Interviewing him. Still nearly 20 yeara later,
he was able to recall the round, stroke by stroke. '
"I read about it," he explained.
And, subconsciously, It's still haunting him.
I Worsham Incident
; For the first time Snead discussed his defeat in two Other
Jl Opens each of which had controversial undertones.
H' One was in "47 when Lew Worsham beat him in a playoff.

i when Worsham suddenly asked for a measurement to see who

J Worsham's action, it. was remarked smacked of poor
i sportsmanship. ''
1 "I guessed he was just getting even with me," Snead
laughed easily. "On the 17th he stood too close to me on a
