SELDOM HEARD OF. BUT HIS NAME MEANT
A man seldom heard of, though his name is upon every
piece cf paper currency that we handle, W. A. Julian,
United States Treasurer, met death in an auto accident
some time ago near Bethesda, Md., a suburb of Washing
ton. He had been in ofTice since early in the Roosevelt
administration. Many of our readers do not know that
the Treasurer of the United States, is not the Secretary
of the Treasurer, which is a Cabinet position. The de
ceased treasurer was 78 years of age, as shown by a
driver’s license, though it is said he kept his age well
coyered up. He was drafted by Roosevelt to take the posi
tion he held to overhaul the Nation’s fiscal system in mid
depression. His home was at Rockville, Md.. si out three
miles from the scene of the accident, and he was driving
alone. He had refused many positions high in the gift of
of the Administration and only accepted the one he held
as a favor to our ex-President. He was a shoe manufac
turer, at one time president of the Queen City Trust Com
pany. of Cincinnati, and a director of other banks. All
of which goes to show that there are some loyal and patri
otic office holders, who do net hold their jobs for publicity,
or the salary involved, but to be of service to their coun
try, as he only received around $10,000 a year.
DAMN THE FACTS AND FULL SPEED AHEAD—
Now we knowr that LOOK Magazine isn’t even trying to
get honest results in its notorious public opinion pedis. In
the June 7th issue LOOK comes up with the astonishing
announcement that Washington press and radio correspon
dents almost unanimously named Robert Taft as the Sen
ator “who contributes the most to his country’s welfare.”
It takes a lot of gall to unblushingly offer such propa
ganda about the man w'ho authored the Slave-Labor Act,
who has consistently opposed sound medical insurance, wh*
attempted to cut out housing aid to subsistence farmers,
and who engineered the Dixie-GOP scuttling of civil rights
LOOK admits it questioned only 100 correspondents . . .
probably all carefully hand-picked for the right answers.
It is doubtful that LOOK’S warped opinions will do Taft
any good in '50. People are a little sceptical of a poll that
only six weeks ago had the crust to announce that “Taft
Hartley Aims still. popular with workers” in spite of the
fact that only 27 per cent of the workers polled favored i
