JORDAN. M.D. Written For NBA Service FACING THE FACTS CALMLY TAKES SOME FEAR OUT OF POLIO WE MUST SERVE THE CAUSE OF INDEPENDENCE EVERYWHERE !ALL AMERICANS CHERISH THE WAY their ancestors wrested A their freedom from the British. Independence Day symbolizes that feeling of pride. With the menace of Communist Russia abroad in the world, it is particularly fitting that we rededicate ourselves each year to that spiri.t. of independence. We cannot be too zealous in guarding the freedom we fought so bravely to win nearly 200 years ago. With our long heralded tradition of freedom and independence, we have served the world as model. More than this, we have lent moral and sometimes practical support to other peoples struggling to gain their own independence. At the peace conference following World War I, "self-determina tion" •— the right of a people to govern themselves — was strongly championed by President Woodrow Wilson. The peace treaties marked the birth of a number of new nations. The World Today BY JAMES MARLOW S OME WILL SAY we pushed this movement for independence too far, that we assisted in creation of countries not yet equipped politically to govern themselves and incapable of supplying more than a fair fraction of their fundamental economic needs. Austria, a tiny frame for huge Vienna, is cited as example. But actually the problem thus created is merely the same econ omic and political disunity which haunts the whole of Europe. The small nations are but exaggerated illustrations. The ultimate solution apparently lies in some kind of European federation which will yet allow independence-loving peoples a large measure of self-government and cultural distinction. Of, more pressing concern right now is the upsurge of independence in the Asiatic world. A long smoldering spirit has at last broken the surface. World War II, smashing the colonial mold in the Orient, provided the final explosive force. It precipitated a social and political revolution that is engulfing Asia. " i * * * T HE ASIATICS TODAY ARE PEOPLES who want a better life for themselves, and they want to be the ones to decide what sort of life it shall be. This we must understand. Some of us see Asia as a land which must be "shown" the way of democracy. But the Asiatics associate westerners with colonialism, and we cannot hope to eradicate quickly their bitter memories of past oppression. In keeping with our tradition of helping others to independence, we must be wholly sympathetic to their self-governiing impulses.* We must lend every aid we can, but without seeking in any fashion to impose upon them any part in our own pattern of life. They have to judge for themselves what we have that they might wish to copy. Sc far we Americans have not been too aware of the depth and strength of Asia's postwar stirrings. This day of independence here is a good day to resolve that once more the United .States will stand with the seekers after independence—as we have always done before. U.S. Doctors to Operate on Shah By Assoclattd Press TEHRAN, Iran, July 3 — Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi flew to the Golden Shrine of Fatimeh in central Iran today to pray for Allah's blessing during his American - administered appendicitis operation Thursday. ' Court circles disclosed that the Shah had summoned four doctors and three nurses from New York for the operation because he felt he could not leave his country for the surgery during the critical oil nationalization crisis. The King has suffered for years from chronic appendicitis. A physical examination in New York in 1949 also disclosed the presence of a small obstruction in the Monarch's small intestine. Circles close to the court denied, however, rumors circulating in Tehran that the Shah possibly was suffering from cancer.

The Democrats and Republicans who sat together two months on the Senate committee which investigated the firing of General MacArthur issued a joint statement on the subject of fanity. In part it said: "If threatened danger becomes war, the aggressor would find at one 'Stroke ar rayed aganst him the united ener gies, the uniter resources, and the united devotion of all the Ameri can people." » • * « IT WAS A LONG STATEMENT, addressed "to the American people" and meant also for Russian ears. And it drew a lot of applause, particularly since the Democratic - Republican split had been so sharp on MacArthur. Still, another part of this same statement said some things which —in their long-range effect on our future and the course we take — may prove just as significant as the statement about unity against aggression. his was when the Senators said: "We may differ on the proper policy to be applied in the Far East. We may separate on questions of strategy. We may divide on personalities . . . mistakes may add to the measure of our sacri fices or change the form of the ordeal we may be called upon to endure. But come what may America has the means and the will to enable us to survive." « • * * PUTTING THE TWO PARTS of the statement together, they ad up to this: We're agreed that we want to stop Russia although we may not agree on how to do it. It could happen .that in spite of the united desire to stop Russia, the inability to agree on how to do it — or when, or why, or where —could in the end be pretty disastrous. Since the illness and death of Senator Vandenberg of Michigan, who had been the foreign policy leader of the Republicans in Congress, the Democrats and Republicans have been miles apart, and fundamentally apart. Just a couple of recent examples show how wide that split has been: • a * * THE BITTER CONTROVERSY early this year when the Truman administration wanted to send troops to Europe to .bolster our alliance with the. Western Powers; and the fierce dispute over MacArthur's ideas on how to win in Korea and the administration's views. The split between the two parties becomes increasingly bitter as the months pass. Senator Fulbright, Arkansas Democrat, said yesterday he had never known a time when there was "such bitter, ness" in government. And veteran Senator Aiken, Vermont Republican, agreed with him. Nothing in the Senators' long statement ."to the American people" indicates they will make any effort to work better together in an effort to avoid some of those "mistakes" which may "add to the measure of our sacrifices or change the form of the ordeal we may be called upon to endure . . ." * * * * BUT, AS IF ANTICIPATING some such question as — why can't the Senators learn to work better? — the statement said: •"We believe our Democracy has the vitality to withstand any strains that reflect the tensions of an uneasy world. We are convinced that an open discussion of such differences brings strength and unity of purpose."

(Defense •~ . ._J2s>arj3aent photo from NEA.) Even though there may not be any remarkable new discoveries concerning polio, every year it seems a good plan to discuss this dread disease about the time it is likely to hit its peak. Polio is ter ribly alarming and it is therefore wise to review the known and unknown facts calmly and sensibly. Perhaps the thing which fright «ns people most is the mysterious al»d unexpected way in which polio so often strikes. One year, for ex ample, there may be a lot of cases in three or four states and the next some other regions will turn out the worst. It is true that there is no good explanation for this type of behavior on the part of polio as yet, and indeed spot maps of polio throughout the entire world show the same curious actions. For the last year or two there have been more than forty thousand persons attacked by this disease each year in the United States. This seems like a great many and it is certainly nothing to be complacent about. But one should remember that in a population of some one hundred and fifty, million this is only one in three or four thousand so that the chances of escaping are pretty good. Furthermore (though more will be said about this later) a high proportion of those who are stricken not only recover, but have practically nothing permanent to show that they ever had the disease. For all these reasons neither parents nor children should be unduly nervous since the chances of escaping difficulty are good even in those regions which happen to be bad in a particular year. This is not to say carelessness is ever safe and a few precautions are certainly in order. FORECASTING DIFFICULT j Polio is not strictly a late sum- 1 mer and early fall disease. In the northern hemisphere (it tends to be reversed in the southern) polio usually starts in the spring in southern areas and moves north as the weather warms up. But at first the cases are rather few and far between and it is usually impossible to tell whether any particular year will be bad in this respect until late summer or fall. New cases fall off rapidly about the time frost comes in the northern hemisphere. This curious behavior has been commented on often and may yet provide an im portant clue to prevention or treatment.
