EDITORIAL U. S. POLITICAL LEADERS MUST SET E XAMPLE FOR EUROPE TO FOLLOW M ORE THAN A FEW ABLE AMERICAN observers complain sadly from time to time about the dearth of good political leaders in this country. ' Even the most ardent backers of our present leaders feel that weakness and indecision and confusion play too great a role in our affairs these critical days. They lament the lack of men who can not only act decisively, but explain their policies well so that the nation rnay understand where it is going and have faith that the course is Tight. ij France has suffered a continuing crisis of leadership almost since i,\ie end of World War II. Time after time, the delicacy of French poetical alignments has been given as the excuse for not doing something ^hat needed to be done. Of all those who have held the post of premier iince 1945, only Rene Pleven, now out of power, showed the forceful ^raits of a real leader. i In Britain, whatever one may think of its goals, the Labor Party i |pr several years did indeed provide a driving leadership. But today, a Ijiare six years since its ascent to power, the party is running out of ijieam. The doughty Ernest Bevin is dead Sir Stafford Cripps, acclaimed is an expert on finance, is ill and in retirement. Prime Minister Qement jlittlee is still hanging grimly onto the reins, but growing steadily jpearier. i| ' • • • jiT LEAST TWO U. S. JOURNALISTS reporting on the British II scene find the government gripped by virtual paralysis. One said ^e believes Attlee and his colleagues actually are sick of governing and f ould be glad to relinquish power to the Conservatives when and if it tan be gracefully done. ;. The fiery Aneurin Bevan, who some predict will one day be prime minister, has still not lost his zest. But his following among left-wing abcialists is not huge. There is no sign of his being able to take command of the Labor Party and turn it his way. ij It seems fair to say the punch has gone out of British socialism. ^ lot was accomplished in the welfare field and in nationalization of Uidustry up to now. But it has produced no miracle of universal happiness and well-being. Britain still is heavily beset by problems, just like Syery other nation. ;• Throughout free Europe there is a poverty of leadership, a shortage of men with the talent for governing. And even among those who do come forward, few have the stomach for governing in the tense atmosphere of permanent crisis that pervades the world today. They Quickly weary of the ftrain and wish to be free of the leader's tant3 lizing dilemmas. I' • « » W ORLD WAR H KltLED OFF or exhausted much of Europe's potential leadership. What is left has little heart for the job. The Russian threat, compelling heavy rearmament, makes the burden seem rhountainous and oppressive. I In this dreary situation, the United States is the one real hope. It is still young, economically sound, untouched by the ravages of war, ahd optimistic. It has a reservoir of leadership that unfortunately is libt yet being drawn into political li|e as it ought. There is a need for ' Jtble, courageous young men to reach out for the reins. But the vigor and spirit are here. More than ever in our history we need to show what we can do. Unless we can set an example of clear, forceful action, the tired, disillusioned men of Europe are not likely ;tio recover their own capacity and zest for leadership. I LUCKY GEORGE^ |JARGARET TRUMAN is getting a wonderful reception in Europe. PI She seems to be possessed of all the social grace one might fairly demand of a President's daughter visiting abroad. I It 's reported, for instance, that her curtsy before the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret won approving glances from them. •y ^ Good thing, too, If they had frowned or cast a fishy eye on Margaret's performance. King George VI might have had a letter from Harry threatening to punch him in the nose. "iTieyll Do It Every Time I ~ Tl?£W8LEO ». t.

And there's been some cheering here about that. But the sober fact is that the Communists still have a huge following in both countries. Since 1948 this countrv pumped, in Marshall Plan aid, §2.400,000,000 into France and §1,311,000,000 into Italy — the greater part in both places was a gift—to help them recover economically and so stop the growth of Comniunism. American experts say the plan has helped both countries tremendously, economically. But still, after three years of this help, more than 10,000,000 Frenchmen and Italians vote for or with the Communists. • • • IN THE FRENCH ELECTIONS last Sunday the Communist party, proving itself the biggest single party in the country, got around 5,000.000 votes out of a total of roughly 18,500,000 votes cast in France. (The rest of the 18,500,000 votes were spread among five other parties.) That Commusist vote was only 475,000 less than the party got in the last big French elections of 1946—they got 5,475,000 then — when France was just coming out of the war and was an economic wreck. The French elections Sunday were national: They were for representatives of the French Assembly, similar to this country's Congress. In Italy the elections were not national in that sense but were for offices in the provinces (similar to our states) and the towns and cities. In both France and Italy the Communists lost seats, in spite of their big vote. But in both countries the election laws had been changed to let other parties, which outnumber the Communists when combined, team up against the Communists. • • • IN FRANCE, FOR INSTANCE, the Communists, who won 180 Assembly seats in the 1946 elections, got only about 89 Sunday. But—and thsi is a significant but—on one here has ventured to say how many seats the Communists would have won this time if the other parties hadn 't changed the rules in an effort to squeeze them out. The Italian elections were spread over several weeks and still have covered only about two- thirds of the country. The remaining one-third will be covered in elections in the fall. In Italy the Communist vote so far has been truly impressive. In the national elections there in 1948 the total vote for all parties was 26,800,000, of which the Communists and left-wing Socialists, who joined with them, got 8,137,000, or 30 per cent of the total. • « » THE TOTAL VOTE in the recent Italian elections — covering two-thirds of the country — was 17,000,000, of which the Communists and left-wing Socialists got 6,000,000, or about 35 per cent of the vote. In short, even though the Communists lost offices, their total following increased. Percentage­ wise, thoy got more votes this year than they did in 1948, when Marshall Plan help was just starting. In this country the fact that the Communists have lost some positions of power has been greeted as a heartening sign in the fight against Communism. One official here took this view: "When the Communists aren't making progress, they're. losing badly. They have to grow to survive." That may be, even though he overlooked the fact that the Communist following in Italy has shown an 'increase. But there is another view: It is worth serious thought that the Communists can rally so many people to their side in Italy and France after ^11 the Marshall Plan help, plus the fact that both countries now have had six years in which to try to recover from the war.

Drive^ln Popular Bed Ryder, accompanied by the Circle 'C Boys of WLS N^ational Barn Dance, will appear on the Mt, Vernon Drive- in stage Wednesday, June 27th. Mrs. J. T. writes: "I have spent a small fortune trying to bring my hands back to normal after the soap powders I have used. My doctors claim there are many people with the same difficulty. But how is one to know which of these soaps to shy away from? There are so many on the market. I think it is a shame that people with the present-day cost of living have to be subjected to the additional unnecessary doctor bills because one soap concern tries to outdo the next one. What can you suggest?" Mrs. T., you really said a mouthful. But it isn't fair to put all the blame on the soap companies because, after all, we must keep clean. Apparently there are two kinds of skin dificulties which may come from ;oap, ono which is an irritation from substances which are in all soaps, and the other sensitiveness to some substance (usually trade secret) which Is present in a particular brand. The latter can be avoided by switching to a different brand. In general sensitivity one has to avoid all soaps. Many ot the soap companies themselves put out other chemical detergents which are cleansing, but not irritating to a soap sensitive skin. • • • Q—I am 16 years old and I have bad breath which is at its worst when I get up in the morning. What cac I do about this? R. M. B. A—This is not unusual. It could come from failure to brush the teeth carefully, t'rom infected tonsils, from smoking; or from such things as garlic in the diet. If any of these things might be affecting llilllllllllll Jim Barman, who takes the part of the heroic comic strip character, both in pictures and radio has an entertainment program to thrill the whole fgunily.

The other day while shaving I nicked it with the razor. With reports of moles developing into cancer, I am worried. S. B. A—Some moles can develop into a form of cancer and some do not. The potentially dangerous kind are more likely to give trouble if they are on a part of the skin which is rubbed or injured frequently. In a case such as this, therefore, it would not hurt to find out which kind of mole it is so that it can be destroyed if it proves to be the wrong kind. , * * « NOTE ON QUESTIONS Dr. Jordan is unable to answer directly individual questions from readers.
