PREMIER'S PLEA-Gen. Charles de Gaulle asked Parisians in
September to back his new constitution. Overwhelming acceptance
led to the formation of the Fifth Republic. General de Gaulle now
must face the task of holding the French government stable with
the aid of the accepted constitution.

GOI' WINNER-Nelson A. Rockefeller raised his arms in salute
when returns indicated his election asNew York governor despite
the nationwide Democratic landslide. Rockefeller's win may have
made him the foremost candidate for the 1960 Republican presi-
dential nomination.

tervened kept diplomats cautious
in their negotiations with Chiang.
The United States, since 1955, has
been publicly committed to aid in
the defense of Formosa and the
neighboring Pescvadores Islands.
The Chinese Reds have since re-
stricted their shelling to on-again,
off-again schedule.

tion for the Democratic Party this
year.
A liberal tide, under the direc-
tion of the Democrats, surged
across the nation, upsetting almost
every Republican stronghold. The
Republican's resounding defeat
was the worst in years and cast
some doubt on their success in the
presidential election of 1960.
Out of the GOP's nation-wide
failure came a new political per-
sonality. Governor-elect Nelson
Rockefeller defeated New York's
Gov. Averill Harriman for the
state's highest office. Rockefeller's
personality and his success in New
York state may lead him to the
Republican's nomination for presi-
dent at their convention during the
summer of 1960. t
Even new Alaska jumped on the
Democratic bandwagon later in the
month and turned down all the
Republicans running for major
offices. Political observers foresee
an end to deeply-entrenched poli-
cies in both houses of the Congress
when the Democratic majority as-!
sumes control.
Soviets Eye Berlin
West Berlin, the thriving thorn
in the Soviet's side, became the
center of European attention last

month when the Russians began
another attempt to obtain com-
plete control of the crucial Ger-
man city.
The early November edict by
Soviet Premier Khrushchev an-
nounced that the Russians would
withdraw from the eastern sector
and urged the West to do the
same.
The combined reply of the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization was
a loud "no" issued from Paris this
week.
But while the West is united in
its determination to keep their
hands on West Berlin, they differ
on the next step to be taken.
Khrushchev, in the meantime, has
hinted that he will push a June 1
deadline for the withdrawal of the
United States, French and British
garrisons.
Behind the Soviet moves, experts
forecast, is the desire to see Berlin
in East German hands-a situa-
tion which would force the West
to deal directly with the puppet
Communist government.
Economy Recovers
Recession-conscious Americans
breathed- a sigh of relief late this
fall as economists unofficially'
closedtheir books on the 1957-58
economic downturn.
But demands for sweeping tax
cuts failed to convince the Admin-
istration that the recession was
that~ serious.
Produ6ers first became alarmed*
in August of 1957 when sales began
to dip and storage houses began to
become jammed. Layoffs and pay-
cuts spurred demands for govern-

mental action in order to bring a
halt to the economic spiral.
Administrative action came in
the form of more military con-
tracts and >a step up in. existing
public works programs. The reces-
sion hit bottom in April of this.
year and the economy has since
begun to slowly pick up.
Economists predict the average
American will be bette roff in 1959
but are not agreed on how much
better. Labor disputes in several of
the major automotive firms severe-
ly curtailed personal incomes and
temporarily blocked the upswing
predicted for the recent months.

ADVENTURES IN SOCIAL SCIENCE: NO. 1
"The proper study of mankind is man," said Geoffrey Chaucer
in his immortal Casey At the Bat, and I couldn't agree more. In
these tangled times it is particularly proper to study man-how
he lives and works. Accordingly, this column, normally devoted
to slapdash waggery, will froni time to time turn a serious eye
on the social sciences.
In making these occasional departures, I have the hearty ap-
proval of the makers of Philip Morris Cigarettes, whose interest
is not only in providing young Americans with fine cigarettes,
matchlessly blended of vintage tobaccos, grown with loving
care and harvested with tender mercy, then cured with com-
passionate patience and rolled into firm tasty cylinders and
brought to you in long size or regular, in soft pack or flip-top
box, at prices which wreak no havoc on the most stringent of
budgets, but who are equally concerned with broadening the
minds and extending the intellectual vistas of every college
man and woman!
I, for one, am not unmoved by this great-heartedness, and
though I know it is considered chic these days to disparage one's
employers, I shall not. Indeed, I shall cry "Huzzah!" for the
makers of Philip Morris. I shall cry "Huzzah!" and "Viva!"
and "0161" and "Ochichoonyal"
But .I digress. For our first lesson in social science, let us
turn to economics, often called the queen of the social sciences.
(Sociology is the king of the social sciences. Advertising is the
jack.)
Economics breaks down into two broad general classifica-
tions: 1) coins; 2) folding money. But before taking up these
technical aspects, let us survey briefly the history of economics..
01,,
Economics was discovered by the Englishman, Adam Smith,
He published his findings in 1786, but everybody giggled e
hard that Smith, blushing hotly, gave up the whole thing and
went into the cough drop business with his brother.
For long years after that economics lay neglected while the
world busied itself with other things,'like the birth of Victor
Hugo, the last days of Pompeii, and the Bunny Hug.
Then one day while flying a kite during a thunderstorm, the
American, Henry George (also called Thorstein Veblen), dis-_
covered the law of diminishing returns, and then, boy, the fat
was in the fire! Before you could say "knife" the Industrial
Revolution was on! Mechanization and steam power resulted
in prodigies of production. For example, before the Industrial
Revluton-.q w rt.:. nnm - D nn aafv-r ii. .. ,
