*'And Especially The Merest Man ..
With this issue the Chronicle Star-Moss Point Adver
tiser ends its 102nd year of publication and begins a new
"year and a new era under new ownership—that of Easton
-King, editor and manager for eight years, and Ira Harkey,
co-editor and co-publisher for six months- It is an apt time
'lor an unveiling of aims and purposes.
ay
We believe that a newspaper, protected as it is by the
^concepts of freedom of the press. In turn owes something
wlo the people who have offered that protection. The laws
guaranteeing freedom of the press were not designed to
; establish the press as a privileged industry. They were
^designed. in fact, to protect not the press but the people.
""A newspaper ia a public servant. It must not be run for
**4he benefit of the few- Its editorial stand must be beside
those things that are for the benefit of the majority. It
^jnust, furthermore, try to perform the most difficult duty
“ot ell—to present fairly and fully all sides of controversial
.rmatters.
" We announce ourselves as partisans in no group but
Tithe group that represents the rights of us all down to,
.Including, and especially, the merest man among us
We follow no line strung up by others. We follow
-Tinly our own line, which is this: We will uphold unfail
ingly the rights of every man, whether he be a butcher, a
-jbaker, a candlestick maker; whether he be genial, pensive
?$r downright sour; whether he has a million, eigJ-U million,
fifteen cents or owes fifteen dollars; whether he be white,
-black, yellow, green or pastel shades in-between; whether
jifie has eyes of black, blue, brown or no eyes at all; whether
rbe be tall and loan like Easton King, or short and stout
^3ike Ira Harkey.
We hold that such external and accidental character
istics of man have nothing whatsoever to do with the value
7 pf the jtjan. In other words, our policy is a human policy,
tia Christian policy. We believe that the only classes of
■•■people are male and female, good and bad. And we fur
ther maintain that folks of all descriptions are in the same
-boat. We will pin roses only on those who are dipping an
Sbar for the common vessel. For the single sculler, we will
“have rocks—no matter what his name is, what he looks
ijrjike or. how loud he yells.
y Ws arc not reformers, sentimentalists, mystics or
’ saints. We have a firm, selfish reason for our policy. It
" was expressed beat, perhaps, by the poet John Donne when
-■'he wrote. “Ask not for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for
.'thee." Which means, in cruder words, that what is bad
^for the other fellow is bad for you. and, conversely, what
helps anyone directly helps everyone indirectly. We bo
- lieve that by raising the level of tho low man, tho top man
-is forced a bit higher and all of us in the middio rise ac
cordingly.
„ We are, then, for these things: Whatever helps most
“'of us even at the expense of some of us. We are against
T,these things: Whatever helps some of us at the expense
*‘of most of us.
~ We humbly ask your assistance. Come to us. No
^•matter who you are, you will be heard. If we think you
-.right, you will hear us

Merry Christmas!
*' Sunday we of the Christian world will again celebrate
"the birthday of our Lord, as we have done for 1,919 years,
f and the editors and staff wish to take this opportunity to
• wish for our readers the happiest of holidays and a now
••year filled with prosperity and contentment.
^ This will be the fifth Christmas that wo have celo
»brated since the end of the last war which saw the world
t*
.-aflame to its farthermost corners. Those five years have
.seen a troubled and beset world pulling and hauling for
.positions that could well lead to a third, and final, conflict.
As we look back bver the 19 centuries that havo elapsed
•.since Jesus died on Calvary, we see many wars and con
"flicts, much trouble but little of the principles of love and
^humility for which He lived and died.
We can have little collective peace on earth until
“we purge our individual hearts of bitterness and preiu
~dices, nor can we bo classed as true disciples of Christ un
dll we accept the brotherhood of man. as the elementary
--rule of living.
ft' As the birthday of the One who came to earth for us
hdraws nearer, we can see ever more clearly that the ills of
■'the world stem from the human frailties against which
^Christ preached and that the principles for which He lived
-tmd died are far from achievement, even in our own so
called Christian land, almost two thousand years after
tlfis death.
All of our complex machinery and organizations that
£’we passing mortals attempt to set up for the achievement
~pt world peace will inevitably come to nothing (as they
fhave down through the centuries) unless they arc founded
,on the principles that Christ brought to earth and which
we. with our hates, prejudices and selfishness, persistently
^ignore as individuals When wc become willing to live by
«-lhe unselfish teachings laid down by our Saviour, our
.grasping hands may touch peace.
It might be profitable for us to ponder these thoughts
f«nd, during the year to come, turn our eyes inward to our
».ch-o frailties before, passing? judgment on our fellow' man.

A *econt memorandum by Dr,
James Nelson Gowanloch, chief
biologist for the Louisiana de
partment of wildlife and fish
eries and one of the South's
most eminent scientists, on the
proposed establishment of the
first tuna packing plant at Pas
cagoula, underlines just what
this move can mean to the en
tue Gulf Coast. Dr. Gowanloch
speaks from experience based
on intimate knowledge and King
study of the Gulf and its re
sources, and his opinions, there
fore carry weight and substance.
The memorandum was distrib
uted to members of the Gulf
Fisheries Compact, comprising
the five Gulf states, and the
portion dealing with the ex
pansion of the tuna packing is
as follows:
"The tremendous importance
of future Juna packing in the
Gulf slates can be realized when
one surveys the fact that luna
fishing operations on the Pa
cific coast now involve a cap
ital investment in tuna canner
ies of between 10 and 15 mil
lion dollars, and a present luna
fishing boat investment of ap
proximately GO million dollars.
Not only is the Gulf coast near
er and, therefore, more econom
ical as a base for canning op
erations but, furthermore, pro
gressive labor complications
have added to the diificulties
of the West Coast tuna indus
tries. The intensity of interest
with which this .initial project
of Tuna. Inc., at Pascagoula is
being watched by all the tuna
fishery enterprises on the West
coast can. therefore, well be ap
preciated,
“The value of exploratory
commercial fishery surveys lias
been well demonstrated in the
past history of the United
States. It is perhaps of interest
to cite one recent example of
such exploratory work in Can
aria where as a result of expe
rimental dragging for flounders
in the inshore waters on the
Western coasts of Novia Scotia,
the work being conducted by a
research boot of the Fisheries
Research Board of Canada, a
single private commercial op
erator, following the discoveries
of the investigation, and using
an ex-scallop dragger in Kings
county where no winter floun
der had ever been taken from
1937 to 1946 and where for the
same period the average annual
catch of haddock was 7,420
pounds, actually succeeded in
capturing in a single month 19,
000 pounds of haddock and 76,
000 pounds of winter flounder.
"The projected program of
commercial fisheries explora
tion in the Gulf of Mexico and
the projected program of basic
biological research in the Gulf
of Mexico to bo carried out by
tin' two vessels of the fish and
Wildlife service (Ed. note: one
of these, the Oregon, will he
based at Pascagoula) will pro
vide the* long sought, long
hoped for and now to be real
ized means of making available
information involving the dis
covery and exploitation of the
marine resources of the* approx
imately 750,000 square miles of
the Gulf of Mexico, an area in
these respects presently almost
unknown. The proposal that
the research activities of the
two vessels will be planned with
the full consideration of the
suggestions of the Gulf States
Marine Fisheries Compact and
its biological advisors empha
sizes the grave responsibility of
utilizing those opportunities in
the most productive manner
possible.
"It is the purpose of this
memorandum, as already stat
ed. to brinq to present attention
the hiqh importance of the tuna
and tuna-like fishes in this pro
qram of scientific investigation.
It is perfectly obvious that the
possible trenslocation of the
present Wesf Coast shore tuna
fishery activities from the Pa
cific Coast to the Gulf of Mex
ico. already under considera
tion for other reasons, would
become greatly more desirable
for the tuna interests if a source
of supply of tuna and tuna-like
fishes could be discovered in
the waters of the Gulf of Mex
ico itself, al the very front door
of their coastal canning plants."
There ended Dr. Gowanloch’s
memorandum. We’d like to add
that location of this canning
industry could mean develop
ment of our rural areas as well
as the waters that wash our
shores. These plants could, and
probably will, can vegetables
produced in the adjacent rural
sections. This would give our
farmers, large and small, an
outlet for the fruits of their
farms, and Would therefore add
to the economy of these areas.
Canners are now trucking to
matoes from Crystal Springs to
Indianapolis f o r processing.
Why not process and can them
in our own statae?

A sweet little story of young
love and attempted kidnaping
came out of darkest Spain this
week. Seems the daughter of
tiie Duke of Pinahermoso want
ed to skip off to the plaza de
toro, as it were, with a bull
fighter known as Dominguin.
Angelita is 18, the bullfighter
24.
Angelita slid down a sheet
into the arms of Dominguin one
night. He took her to friends
for hiding, went to get a mar
riage license. The story didn't
say whether Dominguin is a
matador—the chap who actual
ly kills the bull—or not. Per
haps he was a banderillero, the
chap who enrages the bull by
sticking nasty little barbs into
it before the matador appears.
For certain it was that he pro
voked a mighty rage in the
duke, who is as formidable as
any bull and, furthermore,
much more bullheaded.
The duke had Dominguin and
his friends arrested and Angel
ita was reinstated in her spin
sterhood. Under guard. The
Duke, thus, was the victor. It
is not known, however, if the
spectators awarded the duke
the ears of Dominguin in praise
for the dispatch with which he

Trades’ eounril for proposed
By James W. Silver
Aberdeen, Scotland
Here are some questions
pnsed bv the editor of the Scots
Independent (November, 1949)
which raises once again the
brutal thought that England is
through as a first rate power.
Laugh them off if you will, hut
then read them the sernnd time:
(1) Are English party politi
cians. and political economists,
not living too much in a dream
world of the industrial revolu
tion age of yesterday?
(2) Is the socialist idealoqy
not cryinq out for a share of the
spoils of another age—spoils
that have been dissipated, or
used up. and which largely may
be said to be non-existent to
day?
(3) Are the trade deficits each
year not simply due to other
countries catching up with, and
ev*n in some cases surpassing
us In industrialization, and that
as a consequence the advant
ages of being first in the field
in the industrial revolution have
been and are rapidly encroach
ed upon?
(4) Has the time not come to
recogniz^ that a new world
economy has grown up. that thp
ever advancing world condition
since the industrial revolution
era has shown definite ten
dencies to react unfavorably to
wards England’s economy?
(5) Is is safe to plan on the
broad assumption that this new
world (no matter what particu
lar tvpe of party government
may be in power) can. or will
be willing to, accept ALL the
huqe quantities of aoods essen
tial to provide FULL employ
ment for ALL of England's ex
isting population?
(6) Can we rely on this new
world supplying us with ALL
the huge quantities of raw ma
terials, foods, and other neces
sities. (and at prices suitable to
us), that may be considered hy
any English political party to
ho essential to keep England’s
huge industrial machine work
ing to FULL capacity, and to
sustain ALL her existing pop
ulation at such high levels of
living as mav be thought to be
desirable by the English people?
The fiery editor summarized
Britain’s history in two neat
packages which he terms 1) the
expanding process (1770-1914)
and 2) the recession process
(1914-1949). He then answers
his own question, “Can Eng
land Recover?"
“If England is to maintain
her present, population she will
require to export more, and it
is doubtful if she will find a
market for all her goods, work
longer hours, receive less pay
and cut down not only her de
fense expenditure but also re
strict her welfare schemes.
"The alternative to this is to
cut down drastically the num
ber of her population to bring
it into line with what she can
eupoort at reasonable standards
of living. Capitalism or Social
ism. or Communism or London
nationalisation will not in them
selves alter this state of affairs.
"England will, however, con
tinue no doubt, to lean on the
support of other countries—;to
postpone the evil day. But post
ponement it will be. and the
harder the fall will be when the
dav comes.’'
The author of this dire proph
ecy is a leading Scottish na
tionalist Whose feeling toward
England he himself sums up
with “. . . do not let us fall
with her.” Admittedly, and re
gardless of his predilections, he
has a strong case. But if every
assumption he makes is basic
ally sotind. does that not still
leave the United States with
the absolute necessity, in its
own self-interest, of exerting
its great power to keep Britain
the strongest possible ally in
the world’s uncompromising
ideological struggle?

What's The Most Popular Commodity In
The World? The United States Dollar
AP Newsfeatures
Washington — Those, rectang
ular green pieces of paper you
carry in your pocketbook are just
about as popular as any commod
ity in the world today. When
proud old nations knuckled under
and devalued their currencies to
make them worth less in terms of
the American dollar, the young
American greenback really came
into its own.
Once upon a time it “wasn't
worth a Continental.” That was
when the Continental Congress
turned out 210,000,000 on printing
presses during the American Rev
olution. In terms of gold and oth
er nations’ money, the Continent
al dollars were worth only a frac
tion of their face value.
Coining Began In 1793
The dollar got on its fee't when
Congress, after the Constitution
had been adopte^, established the
present monetary system in 1792.
Congress began coining dollars at
the Philadelphia mint in 1792.
They were all metal coins —
gold eagles (worth $10) and frac
tions of eagles, silver dollars and
fractions of dollars and copper
cents and half cents.
The federal government didn't
turn out any paper money until
the Civil war, when “greenbacks”
were first issued. Banks operat
ing under federal or state char
ters issued notes as currency —
and much of the paper eventually
became badly depreciated in
value.
There was a great hullabaloo
when the government made
greenbacks legal tender, requir
ing that they be accepted in pay
ment of debts. People are inclined
to be distrustful of paper money
and even today folks don't like
torhandle it in some towns in our
western states.
Rut the dollar managed to hold
its own in relation to gold and the
mighty British pound. Through
most of our history the pound has
been worth about $4.86. After the
first World War it began to slip.
In 1920 the pound was worth only
$3.66. It was back to its normal
$4 86 by 1930. But in 1932 it
dropped to its lowest point up to
that time, to $3.50 in US money.
Then it fluctuated wildly. In
1934 it reached the highest value
of which the Federal Reserve
system as a record. $5.03. In 1941
it sold for $4.03, and that was its
official rate until the recent de
valuation sent it down to $2.80.
We're World's Banker
The reason for the rise of the
dollar in relation to the pound is
primarily America’s new position
as a creditor nation. For more
than a century we bought more
from the rest of the world than
the world bought from us. But
in about 1926 we became the
world’s investment banker. Now
we have so many things that the
world wants to buy that our dol
lars are in unprecedented de
mand, throwing other currencies
off balance.
The word dollar was in general
use before our government adopt
ed it. One or another form of the
word designated many kinds of
European currency. It came from
the Greek word thaler. In Dutch
it was the Daalder. In German it
was the taler. Spanish "pieces of
eight" were called dollars.
The dollar sign also was in use
before the Revolution. It is be
lieved to have designated the
Mexican peso. It was first writ
ten “Ps.” Later manuscripts show
the “U” superimposed on the ¥S”
which seems to be how we got
the dollar sign.
Mrs. Clark's Got It
Todav there are about 53 bil
lion dollars in the world. About
28 billion of them are in circu
lation. Most of the rest are held
in the US Treasury. There they
are in the custody of Mrs. Geor
gia Neese Clark, treasurer of the
United States, whose signature
also appears on all paper money
now being produced.
Onother woman, Mrs. Nellie
rayloe Ross, for 16 years has
been in charge of the manufac
ture of all US coins. As director
af the mint, she has in that time
turned out about $1,028,000,000
worth of metal money.
There’s another interesting fact
about women and American mon
ey. The Institute of Life Insur
ance has estimated that 70 per
sent of the nation’s private
wealth is controlled by women.
Your Child Today ...
The Problem Of Jealousy:
Parents Must Understand
By David Taylor Marke
AP Education Writer
Parents are becoming more and
more aware that jealousy in chil
dren is often a very real prob
lem. And not knowing what to
do about it, many parents are
worried. Perhaps they have one
baby and are thinking of having
another, or they have two chil
dren and may have noticed signs
of jealousy in one or the other.
“You will run into jealousy,”
says Dr. Edmund Ziman, former
psychiatrist at St. Elizabeths hos
pital, Washington, D. C., lecturer
at the medical schools of George
Washington university and Mary
land university and presently as
sociated with the William Alan
son White Psychiatric Institute
and the Washington-Baltimore
Psychoanalytic Institute. “Wheth
er you have two children or 10
children, there will still be jeal
ousy; and if you have only one
child, you will still run into jeal
ousy.”
Jealousy Will Vary
Dr. Ziman has just written a
book, “Jealousy in Children; A
Guide For Parents,” (A. A. Wyn,
New York). He says: “There will
be jealousy, but the depth of
jealous feeling will vary with
each child. It will depend on his
relationship to his parents, his
preparation for the coming of a
new habv, and his parents’ atti
tudes toward him in general:
whether they enjoy him and love
him, or whether their affection
depends on his good behavior.
“It will depend, too, on whether
both parents understand the
child’s upsets and whether both
agree on the approach to his prob
lems. But while jealousy in chil
dren is almost completely un
avoidable, it need not become a
problem.”
On the other hand, if jealousy
is permitted to exist without be
ing recognized, it can be very se
rious, he says. Educators, psy
chologists, psychoanalysis, and
pediatricians now agree that
where emotional problems are
recognized early enough, and
romething is done about them,
there will be fewer emotional dif
ficulties later in life.
Jealousy which bothers adults
is not auite the same as a child’s
jealousy, he says. In a child it is
Withholding Recognition Of China
Can't Last Forever, Says Diplomat
AP Newsfeaiures
Washington—The United States
is wielding a small stick against
the Communist Chinese govern
ment by failing to recognize it.
But a high diplomatic authority
says non-recognition can’t last
forever.
In the long run, he says, the
withholding of recognition is not
a powerful lever. US recognition
gives prestige and strength to a
new government, but once other
governments have accorded rec
ognition, a nod from the US
would not mean so much as it
would now.
Angus Ward Case Cited
By withholding recognition at
this time, the US hopes to make
it clear to the Chinese Reds that
it doesn’t intend to accept on an
equal diplomatic footing any na
tion which doesn’t fulfill its in
ternational obligation. The Reds’
mistreatment of Angus Ward and
other American citizens was
enough in itself to disgust Amer
ican diplomats.
To obtain American recogni
tion. Secretary of State Achcson
has said, the Chinese Communists
must not only live up to their
international obligations. They
also must control their whole
country, and the Chinese people
must at least acquiesce in their
rule.
For generations the American
government has required that
new governments meet those tests
before they are recognized. Tho
mas Jefferson first formulated
the viewpoint that recognition
doesn’t mean approval—only that
the US acknowledges existence
of the regime.
'Maintain Communications"
“It is recognition of a set of
facts, nothing more." says Seore
tary of State Acheson. “'We may
have the gravest reservations as
to the matter in which it has
come into power. We may de
plore its attitude toward civil
liberaties. Yet our long-range ob
jectives in the promotion of dem
ocratic institutions mav, in fact,
be best served by recognizing it
and thus maintaining a channel
of communication with the coun
try involved."
Recognition of a new govern
ment has advantages for both
sides. That's the reason some
other countries are reported to
be eager to recognize the Chinese
Reds as soon as possible. It opens
the channels of diplomatic inter
course. Before recognition envays
of foreign powers have no im
munity, no diplomatic status.
They are treated like private
citizens and can be of only limit
ed use to the governments they
represent. If an envoy of a coun
try you don't recognize turns up
in your country, you can deport
him as an alien illegall in our
country.
An unrecognized government
can't be prosecuted before inter
national tribunals in case it fails
to live up to treatries and other
obligations. One government
doesn’t have access to the courts
of another nation unless it is
recognized. It couldn’t sue to en
force contracts and- to obtain
damages for confiscation of prop
erty. Under such circumstances,
a government finds it hard to
make loans or to write contracts
for purchases.
President Has Authority
The authority to recognize a
new government rests with the
Pi esident. This has been stan
dard procedure for many years,
although at times it has been ar
gued that the power was held
a perfectly normal reaction; usu
ally it is an unconscious attitude
or feeling which bothers him and
makes him as uncomfortable as
it does his parents.
It is the poor handling, the mis
management of jealousy which
causes trouble, not the feeling it
self; it is the,failure of the par
ents to recognize the existence of
jealousy, or their downright sup
pression of it, that produces such
unhappy results.
Must Show Troubles
We can say that a child is jal
ous when he wants something
someone else has. The child who
is troubled has to find some way
of showing it. A two-year-old, for
example, may revert to his in
fantile'habits of no toilet train
ing. Or, he may strike his infant
sister or pull her out of her crib,
or worse.
But Dr. Ziman (ays he shouldn't
be regarded with horror, a* if
his parents have suddenly discov
ered they were harboring a mon
ster. They cannot gel very far by
punishing him because they have
not reassured him tht he has not
lost their love. In fact punishment
at such times will only help con
vince him that he has lost their
love.
A little cild needs to feel loved
and needs to have this love dem
onstrated even more when there
is a new baby. The reassurance
that he belongs, that he is still
very much loved, that he was and
is a nice cild, needs repetition
over and over in both words and
acts.
jointly by the President and Con
gress.
At any rate Congress must ac
quiesce for no ambassador can
be accredited until the Senate
has confirmed him. In China's
case, the administration has pro
mised that the President would
not extend recognition until after
