ProviSIon into the highway bill It provided that contractors could not come into an area and cut wages below those prevailing in that area inally Chavez came over to Senator Neuberger of Oregon "ihiate to do this" he said have to take the fair labor section out With it in never get the road bill All morning beginning at the unusual hour of the Senate convenes at 12 the senators had been debating a provision that highlighted thebasic cleavage in the Democratic party All morn ing 77 ycar old Senator George of Georgia had been presiding over the Senate Uusually he presides for a few minutes then retires But this morning an opponent of the fair labor clause he stayed in the chair There might be some close rulings to decide urther highlighting the cleavage in the Democrat ic party Sen Lyndon Johnson of Texas leader of the party friendly to labor allotted time to the op ponents of the fair labor clause Senator Knowland of California the Republican leader allotted time to the backers of fair labor Yet the Democratic party has called itself the champion ot the working man No Recorded Vote Significantly also the senators refused to go on record publicly They would only vote by voice Twice Senators Neuberger Douglas of Illinois and McNamara of Michigan asked for a roll call vote This required a show of 15 hands But Sen Albert Gore of Tennessee had whispered to col leagues to oppose a roll call Author of the bill that finally passed he feared that a fair labor clause if left in the bill would defeat it He knew Holland of lorida Senator George and others would vote no So the necessary 15 hands failed to show Alben Barkley former vice president was not afraid to show his hand Senator Lehman of New York raised his So did Matt Neely of West Virginia Magnuson of Washington Morse of Oregon Mansfield of Mon tana Monroney of Oklahoma all Democrats and Kuchel of California Republican Others sat on their hands With no roll call the fair labor clause was voted out Bill Knowland the GOP leader got the biggest kick out of the vote He wore a big grin as Demo crats McNamara and Neuberger battled it out with Democrats Holland of lorida and Byrd of Virginia The Worry

method outlined below If you wives have been married more than 10 years pay heed ollow example Case 0 345: Helene aged 36 is a vivacious housewife "Dr Crane I am glad you men tioned the value of dieting to regain romantic allure" she began with a smile "Oh I knew that fatness is hard on the heart and predisposes to dia betes and even cancer too those medical fears still make me go on a diet But I had noticed that our marriage was becoming platonic "My husband didn't seem enthusiastic when he kiss ed me It was about as perfunctory as when he kissed our children goodbye when he'd leave on a business trip "So I began to worry that youth with its thrills had already passed me by though I yet 36 "Then I read one of your articles in our New York HERALD TRIBUNE where you bluntly said a woman couldn't expect to feel like a sports roadster with the chassis of a truck "That was brutal for when I critically viewed my figure in the mirror I had to admit I was no longer the slender girl I had been on my wedding day I weighed 159 though my bridal weight was only 122 So I wondered if this maternal figure was what made my husband treat me like that old motherly soul' you had mentioned in your news paper articles "Anyway I decided I had tried everything else without success so I might as well give your diet plan a chance when I sent for your diet book let "And I religiously followed it The first day I did feel quite thirsty with only one glass of total liquids But admit I didn't seem unduly hungry on my 800 calories Remarked Pat McNamara afterward "The victor ies won by Neuberger in Oregon and by me in Michigan gave the Democrats control of the Senate We won on liberal issues But we put in positions of power 'other Democratic senators who will spend their last strength fighting those same The Bacon Davis act provision for prevail ing wage scales now applies to airfield constniction and hospital construction when built with the aid of federal funds Circus Politics Republicans are grumbling that Ringling Barnum Bailey Circus the show on must be in league with the Democrats In one skit the nation's No 1 clown Emmett Kelly showed up with a jumbo luggage tag la beled Washington pinned on his pants He carried golf clubs on one shoulder a shotgun on the other and perched on the shotgun was a White House squirrel ballancing a golf ball As if that enough to delight the Democrats and dismay the Republicans clown Otto Griebllng sauntered around the big top engrossed in a copy of the Democratic Digest Wiped Out by War Congressman John Robsion Jr Kentucky Demo crat was wiped out during World War but he bitter about it He reassured his colleagues on that score the other day during debate on the draft While serving overseas he reported lost my business I lost my

of representatives was telling a capitol news man that his doctor of divinity degree was award ed to him by Hanover college in Indiana "I know that you studied in re marked the newsman "Oh I didn't said the chaplain was an honorary degree that I treasure greatly How ever in all humility I must admit that an honorary degree has a double connotation with the the other meaning besides doctor of di

visit Red China Romulo a great friend of the United States has not decided whether to make the trip By Dr George Crane Stop Platonic Marriage "At the end of the 10 days I had lost HU pounds Then I shifted to your second diet plan where a per son loses about 2 lbs per week and I stayed on it for 3 months "My weight had now dropped to 125 lbs But I noticed a marked change in my husband's ardor when I got under the 130 lb mark used to drop into an easy chair with a copy of the HERALD TRIBUNE as soon as he would reach home he'd call our 'Hello Honey' but the easy chair and newspaper outbid my charms for he sel dom walked out to the kitchen to kiss me when I approached the 130 mark he began to come to the kitchen and give me a real type of kiss even before he picked up the news paper "And then he began to hang around the kitchen while I was preparing dinner He might read his paper there but at least he stayed closed to me of his own accord he now began to suggest that we take in a movie at our neighborhood theater our children noticed the change not just in my waist line but in their Daddy They have com mented that we are like sweethearts "So I am sure my former fat maternal figure must have been at fault By regaining my youthful figure I apparently must be re stimulating those youthful memories of my husband you say? I also feel so much better physically for a shopping trip used to almost kill me but now I still have a lot of pep after reaching Helene is quite right about the romantic effect of a slender figuce so send for that booklet "How to Lose 10 Lbs in 10 Days" enclosing a stamped re turn envelope plus a dime Many husbands past 35 or 40 can also benefit by shedding their surplus poundage so go on a mutual dieting experiment (Always write to Dr Crane In care ot this newspaper enclosing a long 3c stamped addressed envelope and a dime to cover and printing costa when yon send tor one ui his psychological charts) Listening Post KEN GOOK1N8 Signal sports editor who hag two discovered yesterday that little have a different sense of values than do little girls espec ially when it comes to eating Danny Smith five year old nephew was a guest for the afternoon at the Gookins residence and knowing that thermal fry have fickle appetites at times Ken decided ask Danny what he likfd to eat just to make sure the youngster would eat a good lunch Danny replied matter of factiy "I like corn on the cob and corn off the cob and I like watermelons And do you know why I like water melons? I like watermelon because I like to spit the seeds out And I like them orange things They aren't oranges but they are orange inside I don't know what you can them but they are something like watermelon" Unable to figure out what he had in mind Gookins questioned him further Danny thought hard to come up with the name of the things that "aren't oranges but are orange in After a little while the eyes brightened and he said with an air of achievement: know now what they are They are those round things that grow like watermelons you know 'an So there it was: Danny liked com on the cob com off the cob watermelon with lots of seeds and cantaloupes without the DANNY the son of Mr and Mrs Robin Smith also has a duck which stands about six inches high at full stretch He won the duck by tossing coins into a dish at a carnival The duck follows Danny everywhere like a puppy and the site brings a smile to all who spot the twosome toddling along West Main Street near his home Asked if the name was 'TJavy Danny replied in no uncertain terms "Nope his Joey and I like him" AMERICANS at least those residing in this area still like the outdoors During the weekend holiday hundreds were sight ed along the rivers and lakes trying their luck at fishing Many of them take their angling se riously but they were out in huge numbers with picnic baskets Cool wet weather Monday may have limited ihe outings but on Sunday a drive to McConnelsville from Zanesville' down one side of the Muskingum river and back the other revealed that shores were lined except at places posted with Keep Out!" signs WITH SCHOOLS dismissed for the summer mo torists are urged to take it easy Youngsters will be out of doors all day long weather permitting instead of spending most of their daylight hours in classrooms Inside Labor By Victor Riesel VIENNA Strangely enough It took a reunion in Vienna of world labor leaders to produce evidence proving that rance is the weak est link in the chain of anti Com munist nations across the world Through the Communist bloc in the rench parliament leak our vital military secrets Through the rench electrical and construction unions leak the supposedly heavily guarded de tails of our vital bases and the nature ot our atomic stockpiles there The rench Communist Party and rench Commu nist labor is growing more regardless of what reports reach the The rench internal anti Communist and anti Soviet espionage security system was virtually smashed and dismantled by the Mendes rance government has not been put together again Much of this could come out in a trial scheduled for this summer in the rench equivalent of our ederal courts That is if the government doesn't stop it This is the trial of Dides the ace anti Communist undercover police agent who was fired and arrested He is soon to be tried because he had the temerity to expose agents of the Russians in the rench military high command Just watch for this case to hit the courts The judges are now holding pre trial hearings And it is the rench Communists who run the So global labor outfit the World ederation of Trade Unions which goes in for everything from dope running in the Orient to infiltration ofour Pa cific Coast waterfront This Russian world labor outfit has its headquarters here in a big unmarked building at Seilerstatte 3 They exactly roll out the welcome mat for this columnist nor was anyone around to answer questions The big boys were over in Warsaw dis cussing major which will eventually include directives for the Communist unions in the USA as well This Soviet labor unit the WTU is run by a renchman Louis Saillant who lives in a villa here as resplendent as any villa can get in and around unpainted Vienna It is rumoed that his home also has heat these freezing days which is enough to tempt any man in this corner of the continent The WTU building has a staff of 70 top people most of whom are rench Communists Their chief assignement today according to the report of the ourth World Congress of the anti Communist In ternationM Confederation of ree Trade Unions (ICTU) is to push the Operation Good will on the labor front They croon the Soviet lullaby to the anti Communist labor leaders of the and that includes Ameri can labor chiefs as well This is how the world free labor congress report released here the other day described it: "The WTU has been very active in trying to or ganize so called united fronts with free labor and since these endeavors have not been successful it is trying to infiltrate into bona fide trade unions Communist organizations the WTU and its affiliates are very active in the field of organizing resistance against any efforts by demo cratic countries to build up a defense system Only a few weeks ago WTU chief Louis Saillant sent a letter to the ICt rU reflecting important So viet policy The letter urged the anti Communist unions to join with the Communist labor federation in a fight on world industry The communicBtion was ignored by the anti Com munists but this stop the Sovietering labor leaders hy again And what they try in Europe they also try in the The point is that the pro lullaby has been rewritten The new lyrics tell us not to be afraid To show us that they intend to hurt us while we sleep saying they want to work with us on every front And who can say it more charmingly more dis armingly than the rench Communists Ooh la la we had better watch our step I believe that in a 'decade from now there will be a variety of ships in thq (U S) fleet operating with nuclear pdwer Robert
