Mere Lobbyists Needed
This country needs more, not fewer,
lobbyists. This should be made plain at
a time when congress is girding for an
investigation of lobbying.
What congress apparently proposes is
a close scrutiny of some of the more active
-—perhaps too active—lobbies. 0n the
face of it, this is a worthwhile project,
because admittedly there have been
abuses of this democratic privilege.
- The danger, however, lies in that the
sins of a few may bring a blot on the
many. The word “lobbyist” must not
come to have the same odor as “chisler”
or “five percenter.”
Lobbying, in itself, is—and must re
main—an honorable business under a
republican form of government. If this
nation were a true democracy and 'every
issue was decided by a vote of the people
there would be no need for lobbyists.
But in representative government,
where elected delegates do the voting,
lobbying not only is necessary, but it be
comes an obligation of every citizen to be
a_lobbyist. He must not permit his elected
representatives to vote unassisted. ‘
If the will of the people is to be done
it first must be known. Our representa
tives can know our will only if we express
it. Our “votes,” the majority of which
determine how our delegates shall vote,
must, of necessity, be the letters and the
telegramsme'send those delegates and the
telephonef’iconversatibns" we have with,
them. ' . it
To do this, of course, makes eg" y
citizen a lobbyist. 4 . . "
However, failure to do it makes for
government by the few who are interested
enough to make their interest known—or -
Lto hireksomepne togggke it known, which
also is lobbying. 4' ”
This isgthe distinction we must keep
in mind constantly during the days ahead
:when ms is investigating lobbyists.
Robert Emmgy Gay '
Quiet, outspoken 'and studious are
words that describe Robert Emmett Gay,
who for 21 years edited and published the
Prosser Record-Bulletin.
Never one to reach for the limelight,
Bob Casi, always made .his influence felt
tram the'snhdaws: fHe “.had unbounded
faith in his community and the future of
the lower Yakima valley. He never gave
sparingly of his efforts.
He was always a booster, when boost
.ers Were needed; he was a critic when
critics were needed, and he was known as.
-a man who never hesitated ,to provide a
helping hand in assisting some worthwhile
community venture. , 7 _ 7 - - _
'Bob Gay was a student of civic and
state affairs. He was slow and thorough
in reaching a decision on issues, but once
he he‘d made upshis. mind, he made his
.staniknom _withnut' qualification.
,He never compromised a principle.
He was always a gentleman.

The Marrow Of Faéf
T DURING ALL the year‘s‘ of
iierce propaganda to convince
the American people that Soviet
Russia is a good nation, that Sta
lin is a good dictator, that com
munism is becoming a good sys
tem. men and women who be
lieved no such thing and even
knew that it was all untrue, toed
the mark and followed the pipers
not power. Their excuse today is
that they were patriotic and fol
lowed national policy.
Some of them limit their par
rotings to the war years and in
sist that they could not oppose
their own government during a
:war. Many of them today are
anxious that. their records of
those years should be forgotten;
that what they said and wrote
should not be resurrected to
plague them.
On the other hand, during this{
same period. men and women Ofi
courage and integrity, at person
al risk, insisted upon stating the
truth as4they could find it. , To
mention ‘a'few. there were West
brook Pegler. John T. Flynn, Ful
ton Lewis Jr., Isaac Don Levine,
J. B. Matthews, Eugene Lyons,
Ben Gitlow, who “tried to warn
the American people that they
were being tricked and fooled.
All or us—and there were more
than here noted—became unpop
ular; we were smeared, attacked,
abused, and lied about.

existence and nature of that cell
is being disclosed in the Second

An organized effort is now be
ing made to smear Fulton Lewis
Jr. This is nothing new. He was,
for a time, nearly forced off the
air by an organized and wicked
campaign to .paint him as an
anti-Semite. When Hitler was
around, such a charge, true or
false, was sufficient to kill off
any writer and commentator.
Now, he is being accused of in
accuracy. When one asks for a
gilldof particulars, none is of
ere .
BASICALLY. THE theory of the
aggressive defenders of lying is
to besrnirch everyone who tells
the truth. Lewis brought Harry
Hopkins back into the news and
again raised the issue of his
menacing relations to our gov
ernment. The defenders of Hop
kins are unable to establish his
purity; he is dead and cannot
direct them and whatever is the
record. good or bad, will show.
Harry Hopkins, like any other
figure in history, will have to
stand the test of. time and the
disclosure of records. There is
nothing more he can do about it
than Hitler, Mussolini, Julius.
Caesar. Franklin D. Rooseyelt or
King Tut can do about their rec
ords. No matter what documents
are burned or what information
is suppressed, the trnth has a
curious way of coming out. I

A Discussion On,
Modern Music
SAN FRANCISCO; Dec. 10 I have
been studying modern music lately—mod
ern music being approximately one-half
“Mule Train” and the other half bop—and
I may have found an antidote for the
whole business.
This antidote would be a young color
ed gentleman, originally of Los Angeles,
whose name is Connie Jordan.
Mr. Jordan is in his late 20’s and he
looks rather like a sunburned Sinatra. He
is a reformed drummer, and he sings in a
little joint called the “Say When” here
in town. The “Say When” finds itself
stacked to the eaves each evening when
Mr. Jordan begins to roll, and remains
stacked until Mr. Jordan goes away.
This is because Mr. Jordan has a yoice
that combines something of the old fash
ioned Georgia camp meeting with a sly}
sophistication and even a wistful tenderw
ness—Good Gawd, Ruark, lay them adjec
tiv'es down, boy—which makes him about
the best parlay in entertainment I have
clocked since Crosby had hair.
WHEN CONNIE is singing hot he
opens up his mouth like a sinner come to
mourn and he whacks his hands between
phrasings and when he rocks on his heels
and whacks his hands and opens up his
mouth you can see the whole jampacked
crowd whack hands and rock on heels and
follow him with silent, open mouths.
When Connie renders “Saturday Night
Fish Fry” unto his faithful, there is no
doubt at all that the young man has a son I
in his lungs. He does not croon. 7 _
Connie can-stroke a ballad as soft and
sexy as Sinatra in his better days and he
doesn’t have to fake a falsetto. .He can
turn loose on' a ditty with as much or as
little noise as the ditty needs and knock
the crowd dead with one reaction—name
ly, that a pleasant looking brown young-.
ster named Jordan has just cornered the
market on all the rhythm in the world. ,
On top of that he looks nice. There is‘
a touch of the choir boy about him, and a
clean good humor. This is a refreshing
change from the nasty-looking men with
the berets and the little goatees who hol
ler “0000” and “eeee” in leiu of words, and
whose whole repertoire seems slanted at
the marijuana, or happy-stick, set. ‘
I AM JUST about caught up on this
bebop kick. Paul Weston, _a rare band lead
er who plays soft and pretty, was telling
me the other day; that bop has become so
esoteric that when a player, gets up now
to take a solo break, all he has to do is
stand there for most of his 32 bars and
the applause is just as heavy as if he were
‘ This is known as performing to a
“cool” audience, a cool audience being one
which is so hep that it does not need to
hear the music at all, but can imagine
what the music would sound like if” it were
actually being blown out of a horn or
thumped from a drum. It is somewhat
like paying a singer not to sing or‘ a foot
ball player not to run, and may have some
advantages, ‘at that, I mean that is the
proper place for bop, anyhow —in the
heads of its fanciers and not in the public
eardrum. .
MY MAN JORDAN comes from‘ a
musical family and hence has some respect
for sharps and flats. His stuff ends on the
beat and he is so old-’fashioned he even
sings in tune. This is a modern miracle in
jazz singing, since mostoftthe ones I hear
lately wander around the m'elbdy’ like a
drunk in the subway.
Ordinarily I do not make a habit of
going about discovering people, since this
sometimes earns you a rap on the snout or
additional financial obligations, but I
break the rulein favor of Mr. Connie Jor
dan. \ '
If this young gent isn’t the hottest
thing in the vocal business before he’s
much older I will take up bop myself and

“But This Thing Isn’t Getting A‘ny Bigger”
Tribunal Criticized . . . By Ray Tucker
‘ WASHINGTON. Dec. 10—Many
readers have asked for comment
on the Supreme Court’s recent
decision upholding the Patent
Office’s disbarment of a lawyer
because he had included a ghost
written article in his successful
application for a patent on a
work-reducing, automatic ma
chine. They are inclined to criti
cize the tribunal for condemning
such a common practice among
statesmen, officials and‘business
executives. . . .
The hullaballoo over this deci
sion demonstrates once again
the need for a publicity expert
to keep this august and hard
working body ot men from being
misunderstood, and made to look
ridiculous at times.
The court did not condemn
ghost-writing as such. It could
not have done so with a straight
face because I doubt it there is
a man on that bench who has
not resorted to this device at
some time or other in his career.
As a matter of fact‘kmost of their

court’s opinion, a “fraud" and a
“deception.” The lawyer persuad

sign an article praising the pa
tent and refuting charges that it
would be detrimental to union
employees by depriving them of
work. The ghost-writer subse
quently demanded and was paid

Moreover, as patent officials
note. a rival company eventually
had to pay more than a million
dollars for‘intringement of the
