Political Spotlight Turns Toward Eisenhower Again That other general, Dwighl D. Eisenhower, has managed to capture a little newspaper attention lately, too. He's back in the political news again. Public opinion samplings reaffirm the notion that has pretty general currency: Eisenhower is still the most popular choice for president in 1952 among voters of both major parties. Better than two-fifths of the Democrats favor him, and almost as many Republicans, percentage-wise, feel the same way. Nobody else-is close. One thing is thoroughly apparent. Eisenhower's absence from the United States isn't likely to damage seriously his standing with the American electorate. His popularity has a rare magic about it. It endures no matter where he is or what he's doing. The question always is, of course, whether he'd run for president, and if so on which party ticket, Republican or Democratic. Many observers and some of his friends report their conviction the general is a Republican. But he hasn't said that. Uncommitted publicly, he could go either way. \Vould he run? In IMS he rejected the idea, saying he didn't think mili-. tary men should aspire to the presidency. But he left one significant loophole: he excepted some extraordinary situation which might justify a military man in setting aside normal limitations on political participation. So it boils down to this: Does Kiscn- hower find anything in the picture today, or is ho likely to discover anything between now and nominating time, which which is big enough to qualify as an "extraordinary situation" ? Some political men believe foreign policy may provide such an issue; They point out that Eisenhower is a leading exponent of the theory thai Kurope, not Asia, is the primary field of conflict with Russian communism. He believes loss of Europe to the Reds would be of much graver consequence to us than loss of, Asia. The present championing of General MacArthur by many Republicans, including party leaders like Senators Tafl and Wherry, raises the question whether the GOP might not sec presidential campaign grist in the Europe vs. Asia argument. MacArtlnir, of course, believes Asia is the ground where communism must be met and faced down; he feels Europe will surely he lost if Asia goes first. If it becomes apparent the GOP wants tln> issue carried down to the wire in 1952, it's argued that "Ike" might be constrained to act—politically. What, then, would he do? and among the governors who share There are Republicans in Congress Eisenhower's view of Europe's importance. With their aid lie might try to seize the GOP nomination, re-orient the direction of the party and push the MacArthur policy into the background. But he might consider this plan cither hopeless or unworkable, on the score that a preponderance of GOP sentiment against his views would insure extreme difficulty in his relations with Republicans in Congress who'd normally be expected to support him. He might therefore .conclude that to oppose a policy he believed risky for the nation he'd have to run as a Democrat. There are signs that even President Truman might not be averse to this arrangement. No one really knows whether the Europe vs. Asia controversy may qualify in Eisenhower's mind as an issue great enough to dissolve his objections to entering politics. No one can he sure that these speculations of political men are even engaging the general's thought right now. But it's certainly fair to say that the iUacArlhnr debate has made Eisenhower more of a political issue than ever before. Views of Others On Doing More Than One's Share " can be a first-rate Christian unless he is willing to do more than his share." Some time ago in our browsing we ran across this striking statement. Immediately the thing happened that should always happen when we read something suggestive and challenging—the thing that all writers pray will happen—we stopped our reading to think about what we had just read. (It, is a golden hour in our reading when wa find something that makes us close the book for meditation!) At once we recognized that the writer was not talking about just any Christian, but a first-rate Christian .The inference was clear that one might become a second-rate or third-rate Christian who did not have the willingness to do oiore than his share, but never a first-rate Christian. Wa' recognized, too, that this principle of doing more than Is required is fundamental in the teachings of Christianity. The Master Teacher. Himself, said: "If any man would compel you to go with him one mile Uhe legal limitation) go with him two miles." That Is just another way of saying, "If you would be a first-rate follower of Mine, you must be willing to do more than your share, more than is requirt-d—you must go the second mile." like, It leaped beyond the statement of the author Then our mind did another thing that writers and w« found ourselves asking, "Can a man be a first-rate anything'-unless he is willing to do more than his share?-Can he be a first-rate merchant or farmer or engineer, a first-rate lawyer or doctor or journalist or teacher?" In each case the same answer came back, "No." We recounted that men who had reached the highest point of success In various wa.ks of life—men who could really be termed first-rate—were not men who were afraid they would do more than their share, who were not willing to go the extra mile. Where is the man who has made an outstanding success in the business or professional'world who was not willing to do more than his share? Ths ones we know were not only willing, but actually did more than was required of them. But we wish to make a special application of this great principle to a specific relationship of life—thai, of citizenship. It seems to us that just now there is need for the application. Our President lias declared a "National Emergency" facing our cauntiy and has called upon the American people to do s number of things -some of them hard—10 help meet that emergency. The duties ou;lim-rt involve not only the usual routine experiences of life, but include other important matters that, for many, will change the course of their lives, and, for all of us, will douhde-ss affect our usual standards of living. What is to be the attitude of the American citizen? We predict that il will be he same atti- . tucie that has made America • great; the same attitude that has enabled her to overcome every other crisis in her history—the attitude of not only doing what is required of us, but going beyond it. Can we imagine the real builders of our nation, the builders of our states, our cities, our vast industrial empires, our gigantic agricultural developments—can we imagine these people drawing a line anrt saying, "I'll go this far but- not further. This will be my share and I'll do no r-.oie." H they had taken that attitude America, as we have it today, would never have come Into being. No, the builders of America drew no lines. They thought of only one thing—building upon this soil the kind of America of which they had dreamed. They did nol count the cost. They had Ihe same spirit as the soldier who receives the Conv'1-esj.ional Modal of Honor—"beyond the call of duty' 1 —doing more Ihan his share. The point we arc making is that if it look that spirit to build and develop America, it is goins to take the same spirit .o protect and preserve America, We do not sec how it can be done with anything | c?s . The crisis \\e are now facing is regarded by many as the most crucial in alt our history. Not only is the proscrvalion of America Involved but the pi estivation of frci-dom and justice and Individual dignity for the human race. When we apply to clllzonshlp. the same principle our author applies to Christianity, can we— any of iif,-recl that <ve arc first-rate citizens vm- lt« we, too, are willing to do more than our share? —COLUMBIA (S.C.)

Written for NBA Service Third of four articles on stomach ulcers.) Bill R. is a lawyer. Last summer its son went into the Marines and n the fall was sent to Korea. At ibout the same time a "friend" for vhom he had signed a nole skipped, leaving Bill with a considerable financial obligation. In the fall, loo, lie had several difficult law cases \vhich worried Itfrn more :han usual. By early November Bill was having trouble with his stomach. He went to the doctor who :ested htm, took X-ray films and •old Bill lie had an ulcer. This kind of story goes on all the lime, many people showing the first Igns of ulcer when they are going through a period of great nervous and emotional strain. But this isn't all. Once a person has an nicer the .symptoms practically always get worse wrong. A quarrel, a difficult interview, long period of strenuous \vork will bring on an ulcer or make one worse. Undoubtedly public accountants have mere trouble between Jan. 1 and March 1 than at other times of the year. Nowadays some of the rest of us are more than ever likely to have the same experience. The close relationship betweei: the nerves and ulcers is well knowi and generally accepted by the medical profession even though exactly how it all works is not entirely clear. Some students of the disease have even built up a kind of personality into which most ulcer vie tims fit. The potential ulcer sufferer, thi theory goes, is ambitious, har< working, finds it hard to relax, an< is likely to hold dov.Tl several jcb at once.

In these conflicting viewpoints of the two governments, it would seem thai neither is leading the other armmri by a ring in the nose. There are many other issues on which they differ, and on which American views prevail. The British reel that they have not been given credit in America for their efforts against communism in other parts of the world. They have 10.000 troops in Malaya and garrisons in H other countries. The British are perhaps more fearful of atomic attack than are alarmists in the U.S. And they fear that the U.S. is not firm and will not stick to its North Atlantic Treaty commitments. Secretary of Slate Dean Acheson •s known to feel that any American foreign policy which is not closely allied with the British Commonwealth of Nations is not practical South begins by leading the king of spades ifrom his hand ami ruff- ing 1 it in dummy. Dummy returns a trump, and South wins a finesse with the queen. South next leads the six of clubs, west plays lov,',. and dummy wins \vith the king. This enables dummy to lead another trump, and South finesses again, but then he leaves the king of trumps out in order to keep control of (he hand. • Now South cashes the king of diamonds and continues with the seven of diamonds. East wins and returns his last trump (his safest lead}. South winning with the ace. At this point South produces the deuce of diamonds and wins the last diamond trick with dummy's six.
