SMNOMX, »S4 XMXAH QunNUAME, 1 \M OATIS TRIAL IS TYRANT'S TACTIC TO QUIET HIS RESTIVE SUBJECTS I N PRAGUE, CZECHOSLOVAKIA, a familiar drama was recently reenacted. The Communists "tried" an outsider from the western EWorld on grounds of "espionage." The only difference this time is that •the victim is an American newspaper reporter. He was sentenced to i; 10 years' imprisonment. Bespectacled William N., Oatis, Associated Press correspondent in Prague, gave the groveling confession which is standard operating procedure in these Communist courtroom circuses. He. said he was a spv and that three other western reporters who formerly worked in Prague .. a*lso had engaged in espionage. Somehow, he managed to deny that he took over a "spy network" when he became A. P. bureau chief in Prague. But he testified that he carried on his spying on orders from his superiors in London and ; New York arid "under the influence of some western diplomats." I T IS, OF COURSE, EASY for the Communists in Czechoslovakia or any other Iron Curtain nation to allege espionage. The gathering "of any information, however harmless, can be fitted, for example, into -the broad Czech definition of spying. Reporters thus would be especially choice" prey. . ' These spy trials having gone on so long with such obviously false foundation, you may wonder why the Reds continue to stage them. "They would have to be ridiculously naive at measuring world opinion \:iq believe these affairs make any impression upon the West. If they don 't think the West takes the trials seriously, what purpose motivatesh them? Why single out a lad like Oatis and put a lot of gibberish in his mouth ? There is always the chance, naturally, that the Communists wish to irritate tly western countries to the point where they will withdraw diplomatic and other observers who can tell the outside world about life behind the curtain. This move was often suspected in the Vogeler case in Hungary. Yet the likelihood is that the fundamental objective does not concern us directly at all. The trials are probably means largely for home consumption. I T IS AN AXIOM OF DICTATORSHIP that the best way to retain still control over people at home is to arouse their fears of external aggression. Russia and her compulsory friends have always played it . that way. Being caught in the Communist vice, lacking virtually all the ordinary comforts of 1951 industrial civilization, the hapless citizens of the Communist world have little to look forward to. But powerless as they are, they still are a source of worry to their leaders. - No people will suffer indefinitely without reason. Therefore the Kremlin finds it essential to fabricate the notion, of a deep-eyed western "plot" against the defenseless Reds, who are so earnestly searching for "peace." Stalin's hope is that by convincing E ::them they are ringed by aqtive enemies, he Can get his ''subjects" to ., endure placidly their grinding poverty and lack of freedom. 5 ' The trials are an integral part of this strategy. They are the ^"dramatic proof that the "plot" is real, that the danger from the West •""is immediate. What the West thinks about these little fantasies '•-probably does not cause the Kremlin one moment's concern. They , are a regular feature of the dictator's repertoire. COPS. IWI, rs.tTHtt.--i MNPh-ATt. WOUUS SIOMT? »M«HP If"" ••'•• ! WELCOME BONER T HE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT wound up the fiscal year Uune 30 with a $3,500,000,000 surplus, second largest in the country's history. • , This pleasant condition contrasts sharply with the $3,100,000,000 deficit rung up in the previous year, and with a forecasted $7 billion deficiency in the year just closed. Rough calculation indicates that our financial prognosticates *yere somewhere around $10,500,000,000 off in their predictions, offhand, this sounds like pretty glaring misjudgment. But in this high-flying age, mistakes in the mere millions are outmoded. Whether we're right or we're wrong, we do things today on the grand scale. To those who pulled this particular boner, we should perhaps say: "Thanks a billion." Seneca.

JORDAN. M.D. Written For SUA Service IF YOU WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT DON'T TALK — BE CONSCIENTIOUS The first step in reducing is to want to lose weight — not just as a subject of conversation at the bridge table while munching cook- is or chocolates — but a real wish to achieve a normal size and shape. This genuine desire is what is most often lacking witness the constant search for an easy, quick way to get it all over with. What usually happens is that a fat person suddenly decides to do something about it; starts doing rolls on the floor, goes to a massage parlor, sweats several times in a Turkish bath, or takes some diet for a couple of weeks He or she then hopes to forget the whole matter and go on eating as before. No, to do the job requires intention, will power, stick- to-it-iveness and knowledge of how to go about it and how much weight to lose. The problem of reducing is really simple. Food supplies the fuel which the body burns. One can either burn more food or put in less; the latter is much more practical. If less food is taken in than the body uses up in energy, the body will start burning the fat and it will begin to disappear. But, someone says, "how about thyroid and other drugs? Can't we use these and burn off the fat without bothering to eat less?' Rarely or never will this do the trick. DRUGS DANGEROUS Perhaps the most promising exception is amphetamine (benze­ drine) in various forms. And this apparently does not burn calories faster but merely acts by reducing the appetite. Furthermore the usefulness and dangers of drugs of this group still have not been finally estimated. Far and away the best method of losing weight is to have the ideal weight calculated, the energy output measured and then start in with a definite diet of so many calories which are less than the daily output. If such a diet is really followed consistently (that is without cheating) it will result in whatever loss of weight is desired.

Ill I 4)111» The World Today * * * -* BY JAMES MARLOW Where Are the Giants? By JAMES MARLOW AP Staff Wrltei WASHINGTON, July 9— Where are they, those magnetic and golden-throated men, the giants of Senate oratory like Webster, Calhoun and Clay who made the heart leap with their eloquence? Those three, and there were others, have been dead a hundred years. No one in the Senate now can match them for oratory. From all the Senate speech- ma king of the past 20 years who can remember a single phrase that sticks in the mind like this one, picked at random from Webster: "Liberty and union, now and forever, one and inseparable?" • • * • I ASKED A MAN — perhaps the greatest living authority on Congress, although he doesn't want his name used here — why there are no more Webs tors who can tingle the American spine? In the first place, he said, he thinks oratory is getting to be a lost art, like lengthy letter writing. Of those now in the Senate he'd put first — for oratory — Matthew Neely, West Virginia Democrat, because he admires Neely's ready fund of poetic and classical allusions. And he can think of only three outstanding speakers in the past 30 years or so: Claude Pepper, Florida Democrat, who was beaten in the 1950 elections Senator Borah; and Senator LaFollette, the Elder. • * * * THIS DISTINGUISHED AUTHORITY believes that so many problems today involve complicated economic analysis — like price controls, defense production and taxes — that it's hard to create literary lightning flashes. (But some people think Webster's greatest contribution to political thought was in his discussions of strictly financial matters. And that "peerless leader." William Jennings Bryan, grew famous with his speeches on tariffs, taxes, silver and the "cross of gold." As the years pass specchmaking in the Senate becomes less important in influencing the other Senators. There's a saying in the capitol: "After the first 15 minutes, no vote is changed." Why? WOODROW WILSON put his finger on it in a book — .'Congressional Government" — which he wrote in 1885: That more and more the real Senate decisions are made in the Senate Committees which prepare the bills upon which the full Senate can later debate and vote. There's something else: In Webster's day the best forum for a speech was the Senate itself, because of the limits on travel and communications. But nowadays a Senator can hop SUBPOENAED - In an unprecedented move, the Senate crime investigating committee hiid a subpoena Issued for Gov. Fuller Warren of Florida to compel him to testify.

July 9. — Fishermen dropped their rods and ran to assist when cries of "help, help I'm drowning" came from a group of nearby swimmers in Big Gunpowder Falls yesterday . All they got was a horse laugh from the faking bathers. A little while later the cries for help came again. The fishermen didn't move. Several hours later, police recovered the body of Herbert Bates, 29, Negro, from the water. State Cops Take 17 Slot Machines By Aiiocisttd Prtss MT.
