Speaking to educators in Kansas City, Carl T. Rowan, deputy assistant secretary of state for public affairs, said the real gauge of success of education is the amount of fear in the world today. Claiming that men rarely fear what ences recently because the Berlin crisis was too delicate to talk about. Rowan's feelings apparently are that, where the nation's security is involved, public officials should be silent and newspapers should refrain from informing the public. The Cuban invasion and the part this country played in it wasn't talked about on official levels when the assault was in they understand, Rowan made a plea for the making .

This And That by jph Not Quite Lost In Asia JPH rattan club chairs in the big lounge of Raffles Hotel with the ceiling fans stirring the air mildly. Opposite sat a grizzled, pipe-smoking, Englishman who has been out here for more years than he likes to remember. "You Americans haven't completely lost out in Southeast Asia yet, but you have been doing your bloody best to," he said. "You simply haven't learned that you can't set up little Americas out here. Kuala Lumpur isn't Kansas City. "It isn't money, but how and with whom you spend it. You send out so many laive chaps with the best of intentions and the worst ways of implementing them. All isn't lost, but if it is to be saved, it will take some hard and more intelligent work." Catalog of Troubles He wasn't smug in the way he said it, but sad. He didn't have to voice his awareness that if the United States went down in this part of the world, the remaining stake his' country has in it would go down as well. He,^hq[j;t«tl: on for an hour or more, nudged by 'an occasional question, and, country by country, these are his personal findings: Loas — Already down the drain for all practical purposes. The loss is magnified by the scope and the clumsiness of the American efforts to maintain the pro-western government which the people of the country never accepted as pro-Laotian. Cambodia — Quietly and unspeclacularly it probably will succumb to Communism. To a To Your Good Health considerable degree because its ruler is too interested in playing off the great powers one against the other for his personal benefit, rather than recognizing the times and giving greater attention to the needs of his people. Thailand — Relatively stable, although it is no rock against the revolutionary tides sweeping around it. Its greatest protection against Communism is that the Thais are a placid, relatively propserous people with no burning desire for change. South Viet-Nam — Touch and go, with the odds, if any, favoring the Communists. The ruler is a reactionary who enjoys no particular affection from his people. Malaya — There are no Communists in either the Federation or Singapore, since the party has been outlawed in both places. There are, how-' ever, numbers of variously labeled Socialists who accept the views, but apparently not the direction, of Peking or Moscow. Allied in a single party they quite possbily could some day gain control by either force or relatively democratic means. The • racial problem is perhaps more important here than the political. With the restraining hand of the British removed, and with the appearance of a weak national government, the Chinese and the Malays who are almost equal in numbers easily could be at one another's throats. India -? Breakers ahead inevitably when Nehru dies, and the economy creaks because the plans are so far beyond the resources. The chances of Communist domination are somewhat remote, even if the party is strong in Kerala, Bombay, and Bengal. Religious, regional, and language differences are the more immediate challenges to India's unity. §100 4—Picture of the Day 5—Early Show »—Popeye 13—Huckleberry Hound »:30 4—Highway Patrol 6— Early Show 8—Popeye 13—Scope 6:40 IB—Sport* wltn Dev Nelioa 8:50 13—Business Newt S:5S 5—SporU 13—Weather with Gordon Jump 6:09 4-5-13—News B—Man From Cochlse 6:10 4—Sports 6—Weather with Johnny Yatea 6:15 4—News, Humley-Brinkley 5.13—News with Douxlai Ed\v«r<u 6:30 4—Sea Hunt 0-13—Rawlild* 9—Margie l:i)0 4—National Velvet 5-13—Rawlude 9—Hathaways 1:30 4—Detectives 5-13—Route 68 9—Flintstones 4:00 4—Detectives 3-13—Route 66 9—77 Sunset Strip 8:XO 4—Vincent Van Gogh 6-13—Father of the Brld* 9—77 Sunset Strip 9:00 4—Special 5—Third Man 9—Targer-Corruptors 13—Twilight Zone 9:30 4—Bob Newhart 6—Eye Witness 9—Target Corrupotrs 13—Eye Witness IU:'M) 4-D-U-13—Mewl 10:10 4-5—Weather 16:15 4—JecH Paar 5—Studio Five.

MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molner: Just what is glaucoma? My mother, age 70, in perfect health, h,as specks before her eyes, and a mist. The doctor said it was 'tension' and gave her drops. Now does this mean blindness?—R.H." Glaucoma is an increase in, the tension or pressure inside' the eyeball. In time this pres- ; sure, if not relieved, can damage the eye to the point of destroying sight. It is, indeed, a] common cause of blindness. But that is a far cry from I saying that glaucoma "means I blindness." Why? Because these days we know enough to treat this tension before it has done that much damage. Drops are used to reduce the tension. Other means are employed, too — some people are re- Dr. Molner years old. My problem is my figure. Is till look like I am about two months pregnant, although I am not. I have tried dieting but it doesn't help.-Mrs. L.M." In some women, the abdominal muscles become stretched in pregnancy (and at 23 you've had three pregnancies). At 107 pounds you can't be overweight unless you are very short indeed. The answer, then: Exercises (like the classic one of lying on your back and moving your legs as though riding a bicycle) can tone up the muscles. Otherwise, a good girdle and care in posture will make you feel better. Best of all, try all three. Auld Lang Syne 25 YEARS AGO Airs.

These measures are dictated by the individual circumstances. At times it is advisable to resort to surgery to permit reduction of the pressure The specks and mist mentioned can be symptoms of glaucoma. Halos around lights or bright objects in the field of vision are another. At the same time, there may be other causes of such symptoms, particularly specks, because so manv people have these without having glaucoma. The speck or "floater," or "vitreous floater" in the eye, is such a thing. The better and quicker way of detecting the earliest stages of glaucoma is with a small instrument which is placed delicatedly in contact with the eyeball to measure the pressure. When there are suspicious signs, such a test should be performed right away, to get treatment started. Sometimes the test is made in more or less routine fashion, just for safety — and occasionally exposes an unsuspected case in its extremely early stages. Discovery at the stage described today, however, is satisfactory, and now that adequate treatment has been started, there is no reason to worry about blindness.

(Acts 8:4.) PRAYER: Our Father, we acknowledge with heavy hearts that we have neglected the main business of our lives — evangelism, the taking of the gosepl to those with whom we come in contact daily. Give us the desire and zeal to tell someone of Thy love today.

"The use of ja/z has resulted in distorting the use of several instruments in a quest for new sounds," Beiasco said. "I think part of the trouble is that so many TV producers are young men who have done most of their listening to music in nightclubs. They believe, therefore, that jazz music is good and noisy jazz is better." Late movi« include: "Northwest Mounted Police," 1940, Gary Cooper, Channel 5, 10:15.
