On the other hand, in Europe Fulbright's speech has
been widely hailed as a hopeful sign. Certainly it has
stirred controversy and thinking
Our policy is unchanged. Bin we can keep the idea
of a more flexible foreign policy in view. If we are at-
tached to "myths" or
tional reactions behind us and look at the
what they are.
Should the choice then turn to Nixon or Scranton,
the decision would be between veteran scarred by defeat
in 1960 and 1962 and a relative newcomer, less widely
known but unblemished by previous setbacks.
Scranton’s backers think his chances in such a sit-
uation are good, but he would have to edge both Nixon
and Lodge His best chance might well be the Vice Pre-
sidential nomination, with either Nixon or Lodge

Bocial Security is not the same as veteran’s pensions,
which are gratuities from the government. Except in
cases of service-connected disability, need Is a fair pre-
requisite to the pension. But Social Security is an em-
ploye's own money (and that of his employer). He is
forced to pay it whether he needs it or not. And that is
precisely the way it should be returned to him-whether
he needs it or not—The Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser.

lhTEW YORK—Things one New Yorker
11 thinks about:
The city was not always thus, full of glass
matchboxes towering SO stories In the sir, or
comics coming but of Llndjr's In whits polo
costs, or pleasant Raw York youths sngsgsd
In removing hubcaps from autos. The city
was somewhat different In the long ago—and
If you want to get a good Idea of how that
was. It is suggested you drop by the Museum
of the City of New York exhibit at the World’s
Fair, which is encased in the New York City
The 60-foot-long exhibit, divided into U
panels, demonstrates what a fire warden’s
trumpet looked like in IBM, includes a theater
program from the 1795 production of “The Robbers’* at the John
Street Theater, proudly displays a crown worn by Lillian Russell
and shows a scale model of the 1920 Hudson River sloop Mary
L., loaded with a cargo of hay for New York horses. And so on.
There is a host of color transparencies on view, including one of
John D. Rockefeller Sr.’s bedroom, ponderously furnished in the
fashionable Eastlake style of the 1880s.
An extra added attraction at this exhibit is the fanfoug scale
model of Nieuw Amsterdam of I860—a 9 By 11-foot layout, never
moved from the museum in the past Xf years, showing the city
as It was 300 years ago. Now Yoifk in those dayp was merely a
flyspeck on the map, a scrabble of stnpped-rooT houses at Man

EVERYBODY HERE SEEMS TO BE A COMIC THESE
days: when that monstrous, lavish post-opening night party for
“Hamlet” was held at the Rainbow Room, the place got 86 calls
from characters saying they were Eddie Fisher and won -sorry
not to be able to make the brawl. Also, 43 calls from pseudo-
Sybil Burtons, saying she couldn’t make the scene.... For years
now the metropolitan area here has been the wealthiest section
in the U. S., personal income-wise, and it’s still going up. People
around here made nine per cent more money In 1961 than they
did in 1959, according to a report from the Treasury Department.
The Long Beach-Los Angeles metropolis ranks sernnd and tha
citizens there make less than half the swag we do. . . . Tony
