There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees.—Victor Hugo. EDITORIAL AMERICA CAN DISPEL PARALYZING FEAR AND INSPIRE CONFIDENCE IN EUROPE A FEW WEEKS AGO it looked as if the French elections could change the strategy of the Western World. The riididle-of-the-road coalition which controlled the government —4it times precariously—was threatened by what Premier Herriot called "two monolithic oppositions," the De GauUists on the extreme light, the Communists on the extreme left. Now that the votei are in, it looks as if the "two monolithic oppositions" did pretty well for them selves. The De Gaullists became the most powerful party in France. The Communists got the biggest liopqlar vote. But under the new French election laws, the National Assembly will be a six-way government; the four blocs in the middle can control things by coalition just the way the old Assembly operated. • * * T HE FACT THAT THERE IS, in essence, no radical change in the French goverrtment-by-confusion is not exactly cause for rejoicing in the rest of the Western World, however. Perhaps the new election laws made the ballot so confusing to the average Frenchman that he didn 't know exactly what he was voting for. But the evidence remains that even if they lost nearly 80 seats, the Commies still have a lot of popular support, just as they have in Italy where they are now bigger than any single party despite an anti-Communist government. Fear of what's around the corner is what's keeping France, Italy and the rest of Europe from any real stability these days. And, as Leon Dennen, NEA's roving European correspondent pointed out in a pre-election ifoundup from Paris, "Fear is Moscow 's stock in trade." • • • F INANCIAL AID ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH to conquer that fear. We have to fight propaganda with propaganda to give Free Europe a moral boost along with economic help. Instead, we fiaven't looked very stable ourselves at times. Maybe we aren't afraid, but we've shown certain signs of the Jitters that Europeans could well interpret as fear. • Even though we 're a new world, since 1776 we have had a heritage as ^roud—prouder—than any the Old World can boast. Are we ashamed of boasting, of talking louder than the Kremlin ? We have no reason to be. And we have no reason for not making confidence our stock in trade. If we inspire the nervous Western Europeans with that confidence, the balance of power will be intact. Then see what happens to Moscow 's program of fear. Give Cadillac to Lions Official By Aiseciatad Prtta ATLAN -nC CITY, N. J., June 26.—New Jersey delegates to the 34th annual Lions International Convention are confident Harold P. Nutter of Camden, N. J. will be the International's next president. They backed up that confidence last night by presenting Nutter with a new Cadillac car to use for the travelling his new job would require. Nutter, currently first vice president, is unopposed for the chief executive's post at present but nominations can be made from the floor tomorrow. Officials say they don't foresee any further nominations, however, before Thursday's election. The presentation featured New Jersey flight at. the convention which has attracted 20,000 Lions from all over the world. Marine Veterans Return to States By Aiteeiatad PrtsJ* SAN FRANCISCO.

During World War II the Army carried propaganda-psychological teams right along with the combat troops. When the Army captured a territory, those teams went to work. For instance, in Germany: they took over the radio stations, the newspapers, and other means of information and had the job of changing even the school textbooks into which the Nazis had pumped their own propaganda. The other two big wartime propaganda - psychological outfits were the OWI—Office of War Information, and the OSS—Office of Strategic Services, which worked behind the enemy lines. The latter two folded after the war. In Japan the Army still carried on t he propaganda job. But in Germany and elsewhere the State Department has taken over this work. And now there are two other main agencies working in this field: The EGA—Economic Cooperation Administration, which handles the Marshall Plan: and the CIA—the Central Intelligence Agency. (The CIA, something like the old wartime OSS, has the job of getting information from behind the Iron Curtain. It's a super- secret outfit and whatever it does it pretty much keeps to itself.) This sketch will stick to wliat the State Department is doing. 1. Libraries. It has libraries all over the world into which it feeds pro-American information, plus other material like methods for controlling malaria. The State Department still has been able to keep its libraries in Communist Czechoslovakia and Hungary. In one of these libraries in Latin America a native can go in and enjoy himself. In Czechoslovakia and Hungary it's worth a native's life to be seen going in. 2. Bulletins. To 160 missions around the world the department sends out nightly 10,000 words by wireless. These bulletins contain world news. They're distributed to government agencies, newspapers, and anyone who wants them. 3. Broadcasts. The department's "Voice of America" broadcasts in 45 languages from New York, with relay stations in Munich, Tangier, Manila and other places. These broadcasts contain news, features, comments on world affairs by the department's own people. 4. Films. These are news pictures and documentaries. For example, a Walt Disney cartoon showing how to fight Malaria, or a roundup of pictures of General Eisenhower, or the events leading up to the Korean War. They're shown where they can be shown. In Russia, they can be seen only in the American Embassy. In Western Eupore they're shown in town squares. In Latin America they may be shown in the schools. 5. Exchange of people. This country exchanges students and experts iwth other countries to learn one another's ways. This j'ear 1,641 American students went to other countries for a year and 4,984 students came here. This government pays the costs. But the problems of this propaganda-psychological campaign are never ending since Army, State, CIA, and ECA continually are studying things like these: 1. How better to get the stuff through to other countries, particularly behind the Iron Curtain, whether by orthodox or unorthodox methods. For instance, using private mails and putting radio transmitters on ships. 2. Training Americans for this work, particularly Army and Navy officers, who may be as,signed to the State Department for a year of study. ' 3. Evaluating the work being done. That is, trying to figure out how well the stuff is getting across and what effect it's having. For example, the effect would be disastrous if listeners in Russia were antagonized. 4. Intelligence. Getting from behind the Iron Curtain information that can be used against tlie Communists in broadcasts and other ways. Questioning people who escape from Iron Curtain countries is one way of doing it. More kinds of trees and plants are found in North Carolina than in any other state. Governor Signs Schaefer Bills By Associated Press SPRINGFFIELD, 111., June 26. —The first Schaefer Commission recommendations to clear the Illinois legislature will take their place in the statue books effective July 1. Thirty-three bills making detailed, minor changes in the state government structui'e or modifying functions of stiite agencies were signed into law by Governor Stevenson yesterday. Stevenson gave his enacting signature to bills increasing salaries of state's attorneys and county school superintendents. Most of the pay boosts are for between $1,000 and Sl,500 a year. They vary according to county population. Officials elected to succeed those now in office will receive the raises.

Written Fot NCA Service U You Are Losing Your Hair Get Your Doctor's Advice "Will you discuss," writes Mrs. M. B., "the growth of hair, and some causes of non-growth? Our small granddaughter is 3 years old and scarcely has any hair. I am really worried." In • a case like this one would like to know what is meant by the little girl having "scarcely any hair" since some people expect little girls to have long, beautiful, curly hair and anything short of this is a disappointment. All this brings up the question of loss of hair in general— a matter that bothers thousands of people — men in particular — and causes the expenditure of millions of dollars given to those who promise to grow hair where none sprouted before. When discussing the latter I am always reminded of a highly-educated friend of mine who some years ago first noticed thinning of his wavy hair. He came home cne day with the hair singed under the impression that this would keep the vital juices from running out; the only trouble is the hair is not hollow and so no juices can run out. To come back to the main point, loss of hair, whether on the scalp or elsewhere, may come from many different causes. Far and away the most common variety is baldness in men which may come at almost any age but is most common in the middle and late years. To a great extent this runs in families—apparently inherited through the mother — though other constitutional factors and such things as dandruff may speed the process. Baldness From Disease The hair quite often falls out after some of the infectious diseases such as scarlet fever, influenza, or pneumonia. This is usually rather sudden and the hair almost invariably grows back, though sometimes with a different texture and even color. Just for the record, falling hair can come also froi.. poisoning with thallium salts and from absence of thyroid secretion. These are rare possibilities. There is also a fairly common condition of unknown cause called alopecia areata in which the hair falls out in spots. One might say that there are three kinds of loss of hair: that in which an infection or toxin has brought it about and in which the hair will regrow; that in which some other cause exists which should be treated (like thyroid deficiency or alopecia gllllllllllllllllllllllMIMIIillllllllllllllllHtlllllllilllllllMlllllllllllllllltlllllllllllllllllllllllinilllllll^ HERE'S True Economy in Property Protection! | HILflnO 2-COAT Plan for Better Painting SMITHAI,SOP ' 9 North Side Square Chances are your home is your greatest slnfle investment.
