With a resigned air, many of us ask that queatioi) when we're confronted by a problem that seems too big and broad to feel the impact of a single individual's efforts. Some may aay it about crime in their local communities, some about wir, dthera about signs of moral decay all the way from the family level to the national government. When ybu Jdok at it closely, this attitude really is out of place ill a democracy- like ours. It appears to assume that history is made jnly by the great, or at least, the powerful men. It suggests that the ordinary man contributes little to the stream of events that make up a nation'il life. But in truth this nation and its achievements are the sum of the itidividual efforts of everyone of us. Take away one man of character ihd ability and you have subtracted from the total on the credit side. Add one man of weak moral fiber and you have increasea our lia- bliiti6S. • • • • I N THIS VnW OF HISTORY and national life, no man's energies are lost. What he does affects not merely his own welfare; it Either advances or Slows the progress of the nation. Taken together Hrlth those of all his fellows, these energies comprise the country's living fabric. And they form a bridge in time, carrying the national Ufe from one era to the next. Knowing this to be so, no man who have lived to the fullest of his Capacities need feel he has lived in vain simply because he has not achieved fame, or even success as the world marks it. If it were not for him and eveiy other man who has done as well, there would be nothing for the great men to lead, nothing to build upon. To those who ask: JWhat can I do about it?" the answer is clear. It's this: plenty. Maybe you're not the kind who organizes or joins committees bent on "getting something done." What of it? Your influence for good will still be felt if you live a personal life that d6e^ not contribute in any way to magnifying the problems you see about you. You're distressed about crime in your city? All right, then don 't do anything that will put a single penny in the pockets of the gangsters you'd like to be rid of. • • • Y OU DON'T LIKE some of the politicians who hold office? Well, get out and vote for better men. Don't say the "machine" can't be beaten. It's been beaten any time'the people have made up their minda to beat it. And all that means is a lot of individuals like yourself deciding to get up off their comfortable chairs and go down to the polls and vote. You're upset at the evidence of moral decline. Okay, make sure first that you yourself are living by principles of fairness and honor in all your dealings. Then, try to lead your family down the same path. If you've done nothing more, you have thereby made certain that ONE family is observing sound moral standards. We live in a trouble world that often gets us down. But things aren't hopeless, and never were. Any single one of us can make them better tomorrow, by adding substance to our own character and using the abilities we have. a • a ^VRELY YOU'VE ALL HEABD of the great benefactor of humanity, ij the Russian Commi^ist government. From this fount in Moscow, all blessings flow. Soviet'scientists claimed recently they had developed a new drug effective as a cure for the dreaded leprosy.

The World Today » • * • BY JAMES MARLOW Fress Agents in Government WASHINGTON, June 21—Every year, it seems. Congress gets indignant about government press agents and murmurs "let's get -rid of them." Nothing happens and the years pass. This time something may happen. Senator Byrd, Virginia Democrat is leading the crusade against them. His cry is "more news and less bull." Under his nudging, the Senate has voted to cut down the money spent on the publicity men. If the House also approves, there will be fewer of them. The economy-minded Virginian cited some figures which he dug up from various sources: « • • * THERE ARE 4,109 PUBLICITY MEN in the government. Their work costs about $103,000,000 a year: $13,000,000 in pay; $30,000,000 to print the stuff they turn out; and $40,000,000 to mail it. What's wrong with the press agents ? Byrd thinks toq many of them are used to pump out propaganda plugging programs of the agency which hires them and to try to influence Congressmen. It seems, the Senator pointed out the government press agents have been a problem for Congress all the way back to 1913, at least. In that year Congress passed a law forbidding government agencies to hire publicity experts unless Congress specificilly voted mony for such jobs. But for years, Byrd complained in a speech to the Senate, agency heads have been getting around the law by hiring press agents under some other title and then turning them loose on publicity. Byrd is chairman of the Joint Cimmittee on Reduction of Nonessential Federal Expenditures. And his Committe got on the mailing list of the government agencies to find out what, and how much, stuff they were putting out. LAST WEEKEND ALONE, he reported, his Committee received 2,226 separate pieces of publicity from the agencies in one form or another. He was particularly burn ed up about a "gem" from EGA, the Economic Coperation Administration which handles the Marshall Plan. This one, he said, discussed the problem of elephants versus machinery in Burma and suggested that elephants don't like to work in the hot sun, need a rest in the spring, and a two week's vacation in October. One thing the Senator didn't touch on is the kind of publicity men the government has. He could have received a fill-in on that from newspapermen who deal with them. Most of them probably would have said: Government publicity men, like men in any other kind of job, fall into three groups: Some are excellent and very helpful, some are FOR SALE WEBB APARTMENT HOUSE 6 Apartments, private baths, 1 4-room, 5 S-rooms; stoker steam heat.

The good ones are not as well- informed as the first group, and perhaps not as able, but do a reasonably good job of being informed and, when they don't know the answers, get them fast or arrange contact with an official who does. The terrible ones are those who bum or fake their way through a job, just as happens in private industry. Included in this group are those: 1. Who don't know the answers and ask an inquiring newsman "did you see the statement we put VOUR MANNERS Guests admire a new piece of furniture. WRONG: The wife explains that you got it at a very great bargain or otherwise you couldn't have afforded it. RIGHT: She realizes that It often hurts a man's pride to have his wife talk "poor mouth" to their friends, and so doesn't mention the cost. out on that," ignoring the fact the newsman probably called because he read the statement and wants more information. 2. Who are plain fakers. They promised to get the answer and call back, but never do; or they promise to arange an interview, with an official who can give the answer, but never do.

Wrtttea rot NtiA Swvto* Avoid Painful Foot Troublea By Wearing Shoes That Fit "My feet just kill me,- and when evening comes I'm so tired I just fall into bed." So starts a letter from Mrs. G. Thousands of others suffer with their feet in much the same way, and the worst of it is that it is almost always entirely unnecessary. The feet take a lot of punishment during life. Just figure it this way: every time you take a step the ground hits the foot and the foot has to carry the entire weight of the body for a second or so. Multiply the number of steps by the pressure thrown on the foot each time and it is easy to sec that the foot is a remarkable organ to stand this punishment as well as it does. A good deal of the trouble which so many people have with their feet is the result of being improperly shfld. If the shoes donH fit the feet well It is not surprising that difficulties will arise in time. It is also likely that walking on cement or other hard surfaces increases th^ burden on the feet and tends to make the arches of the feet break down, which is the principle cause of pain. There are two arches In the foot, one running the length of the foot and another crossways iust back of the toes. Either of these can collapse and result in local pain, soreness in the legs higher Up. or just plain fatigue. Quite often a person with a fallan cross arch is not aware of what is wrong; the only local sign may be a callous on the ball of the foot. Many people like Mrs. G. whose feet are just killing her could Today In WASHINtiTON By Aiiaeltiti Prttt (Times are Central Standard) SUN ATE: Considers routine bills (10 a.m.) Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committee investigating Gen.

This is especially important tturing childhood—parents take notlce-^and young girls would be wise not to try to squeeze into shoes which flatter their feet but are likely to lead to later trouble. Spevial Shoes The person who already has fallen arches dan do something about it too. Properly fitted shoes, often with a bar on the joutside or adjusted felt supports on the Inside, are frequently prescribed. Special exercises of the feet such as walking in stockings or socks on the outside edges of the feet or trying to grasp the edges of the carpet with the toes are often helpful. Stimulating contrast foot baths which aid circulation may help too. At any rate, almost all who suffer from foot trouble can be almost completely relieved, though it takes time and a good deal of cooperation on the part of the patient. hears from Supreme Court Justice Jackson and former Secretary of the Interior Harold L.
