RB CROSS Each year the American Red Cross looks to the more fortunate for the wherewithall to help the more unfortu- nate. We are glad to commend .this worthy charity to all. In times of disaster it has proved itself time and time again. Whether it be flood, fire or famine, the Red Cross can always be depended on to lend a helping haud. It represents the spirit of Christianity in action. Once again the annual fund raising drive of the Red Cross is under way. We are aware of the excuses the mind of man has invented for not supporting this charity. We are aware of how it is said that the bulk of the money goes in salaries to high administrative officials. This is not and never has been true. To be sure, every dollar that is given to the Red Cross is taxed to a certain extent with administrative costs. Why shouldn't it be? But too frequently sight is lost of the fact that more ardly orth ention By Henry W. Morrow i than 99 percent of money donated to the Red Cross goes for the rehabilitation of those who have been the victims Senator Proxmire's Warning While there will be few who will come to his defense, yet at .the same time it seems to me that Senator William Proxmire of Wis- consin said something last week that needed to be said. Senator Proxmire was not, perhaps, the best person to say wha was said: nor was ,the floor of the Senate the place for such a thing to .be said. But if the truth of .the mat- Cer be known there are a number i of Democrats who privately en- tertain .the view ,that Lyndon B. Johnson, ,t~he admi,ttedly able Ma- jority Leader in the Senate, is tending to take upon himself the sole res,ponsibility for running the of tragedy and disaster, affairs of the Democra~tic Party. : We hope the Red Cross Drive will encounter no diffi- There have been few ~najori.ty l In our midst who leaders or few men m the Senate culty here There are too many peop e " " . .

Senator Johnson disclaims any ambition to I~e president; but it is hard to believe these disclaimers are really seriously intended. J~hn son {s perhaps as vain a man as has ever gone to the Senate. His insistance on everything around him bearing the initials LBJ sug- gests a vanity and a lus.t ~or power virtually without parallel. Mrs. Johnson is Lady Bird Johnson the canine member of the house- hold is Little Beagle Johnson. In- deed one is almost sickened by this initial mania. It gives an in- sigh,t into the man, and it gives cause for taking what Sena.tor Prox~mire said w~th a degree of ser lousness. It has been said that Senator Johnson 'has brought new vision to the Senate in his policy of see- ing to it that ~bili,ty, more than seniority, has been ,the principal factor in his cl)oice of what Sen- ator would serve on what com- mittee. Here, again, Johnson has been ,the master politician, ,trading commi~btee assigmnents for blank ~hecks on a future vote on this matter or 'that. One needs to but look at the roll call vote ,~n the Senate on the matter of amending the Senate's rules and then look at the committee assignments ,to see how Johnson operates. Senator Pro~mire, it seems to me, has sounded a warning. He has said t.ha.t what the Democrats do or don't do may depend large- ly upon the whim of Lyndon John son in~tead of the whims of the vast majority of the people who make up the Party. And I agree with the Wisconsin Senator when he concludes ,that this could ,be and is a dangerous matter. If ,the Democratic Party is to provide the dynamic leadership it has been noted for since ~he days of Frank lin Delano Roosevelt it must act in concert; it is entirely too big to be dictated to :by one man. And there in lies the danger of Lyndon B, Johnson. Also visiting with Mr. and Mrs. Paul Tabb made a business trip les Town.

February 28, 1959 Mr. Max Brown, Editor Spirit of Jefferson Advocate Charles Town, W. Va. Dear Mr. Brown: I want to thank you for the swell editorial that appeared in your FebruaryMr26". prompted by my column on Eisenhower's White House bills. It's always more pleasant to re- ceive kudos than the brickbats one usually gets in this business, and I appreciated it. Mr. Eisenhow er is not exactly practicing what he preaches in budgeting, and I am encouraged to know your read ers are getting the facts on it. Sincerely, Drew Pearson 574 Eagle Avenue Charles Town, W, Va. March 1, 1959 Editor Spirit of Jefferson-Advocate Charles Town, W. Va. Dear Sir: During ~he course of the news story about "My True Security" contest repeated reference was made to "the three Jefferson Coun ty High Schools", .the ~hree being Harpers Ferry, Shepherdstown and Charles Town. This news item caused 'this writer ,to wonder ,how does Page-Jackson fit ir~o the pic lure. Is it a .high school? It is lo- cated in Jefferson Coun.ty? It seems that the ,failure to men lion Page-Jsvckson created the im pression that ~the students of that institution are excluded from in,tel lectually challenging enperiences. If .this is so, ~hen i,t is .time t.hat some recognition be given to the accomplishments ,and sacrifices of both i.ts if acuity and studen.ts. The scholastic ~ttainments of many of its graduates in colleges and in the armed forces are com- mon knowledge and commendable. As a case in poin.t ,the records of Shepherd College may be helpful. FuTthermore the developmen.t of i,ts athletic program in spite of the snub by ocher coun.ty high schools is noteworthy. The ,time has come when the res iden~s of ~th4s growing area should give recognition where it is due. The pas.t has passed. We should unite our brains ~nd brawns in an effort to utilize today and make improvements for ,tomorrow. Very .truly yours, George A. Lewis, Sr. One of the puzzles that confront the student of human nature is .the great attraction .that scandal has for minds that belong to the ":pure i,n heart."
