British Caution Is Luxury Paid for by Americans Tli«!;British, more than,any of their ' European Brethren, 'do a great (leal of worrying about what tlieir brash American cousins may do in Korea and elsewhere on the anti-Commiiniat front. They fear some antic of ours may plunge us all into World War III. ..; In Kor*a, their own chief concern appears to be to block any action that might materially upset the present frustrating stalemate. Evidence.shows the.y hav« been urging caution for a long period, evtn in times when the UN forces had a much more decisive "edge : ovar Communist armies than is now the case. In Europe, they s«« no alarm in Russia's current posture. They believe w« are the worry warts, and doubt the reasonableness of bur fears. With a patronizing air that has come to be standard, they say: "You're young. You don't understand these matters." Certainly wo are young, and brash. Often we're ill-mannered and usually we don't try hard enough to understand other people. But the British aren't notable for such an effort, cither. Furthermore, our youth dots not disqualify us from judging world affairs. We may have made many mistakes in this sphere. But the record is plain that the British have committed as many or more, some of them severely cosily. In- detd, Britain could not have afforded the luxury of these expensive errors had not America been there to back up the British. They have never exhibited a wise syise of urgency when it was needed. They declined to back the U. S. in dealing with Japan when the latter invaded Manchuria in 1931. They failed to support France in bucking Hitler when he marched into the forbidden German Rhineland in I!i36. Thoy let Mussolini get away with his Ethiopian adventure. All of these moves were crucial. Action at any point might well have prevented World War II, or at least deferred it until Hitler could be mtt on better terms. But caution was always Britain's watchword. Nothing was done, until Hitler invaded Poland and confronted Britain with the ntccssity of war at great disadvantage to the British. It is misleading to suggest that this time we fear war and the British do not. Probably their fears vastly exceed ours. But over the years they havt- developed a huge Ulent for not facing unpleasant facts, for exalting delay, indecision and inaction »» major «i»- menU of policyi They prove their feari in the moments they say th«y h»v« none. Kepeatedly we hav« bailed th« British out of troubles brought on to a marked dcgreb by their passionate caution. And they know, witli the Atlantic pact in force, that we stand behind them today more strongly than ever. They feel ablfc, in other words, to go on Indulging in unreality and calling it seasoned statesmanship. But possibly we may be forgiven for focusing H little harder on the unpleasant side of life in a world endangered by communism. Th« burden on us i§ /heavier than evtr before, and we would have the United States. But no on* utands behind us to give ui the kind of aid and comfort we can give the British. Views of Others Gain For Farmer Democratic aUininEstratlons have done much lor the farmer. Yet U is not Impossible that further gains may be made under a Republican administration, particularly since farm Income, In relation to the income of other working groups, ha* begun to level off In the past year or two. Current predictions are that the new administration, with Ezra T. Beulou as secretary of agriculture,'will attempt to aid f » rme r i by •{lengthening markets, placing • more emphasU on that than on production control! and *ub- •Idlea, - ' . : ' Thie conies under the. heading of "nice work if you can get It." If exactly the same results were obtained, In terms ot farmer income, a program of this kind might be considered sounder and more nearly permanent than R production control program. The test of such a program, of course, will come after It b put In operation. If BUCCCSS- full, It will be accepted readily, even !f it differs extremely from farm programs In the past. The principal advantage of such a market expansion program is that It should be unobjec-" tlonablB to anyone, InciiTdEng city dwellers who often imagine that farm subsidies cost more~ hi taxes than actually i* the case. Inert?aw* In farm prices would be based-on Increases In demand for farm products, and If the ""demand existed the price increases would follow naturally, without artificial price support*, -.-'•'• Is the re • ch R nee f o r success o f such a pro gram?* Well, .the trend in farming Is toward mechanization. This iisunlly results in lower production costs. Dean Hilton of the N. C. State College agriculture department told » Robeson County audience this fall Mint farming In the future probably would be carried on by fewer people operating more mecanical equipment. ••' If production-;costfl can b* lowered,- thlt may itlmp.att more buying and In effect enlarge the market for farm pVoducta, Along with this, new uses may be found for existing crops, and new crops may b« introduced. The possibilities are limited only by the extent of research, and farm , research Is likely to get at least as much emphasis In the future as It has had In recent years. Of course, the n&w administration's farm policy may not shnpe up along these lines, or it may be unsuccessful 1 for some • unpredictable"reasons. But It Ls still possible to b« optimistic about the future of (arming, even nfter a change In tbo administration that has given the farmer some of the-biggest breaks he ever has had. —Lumber ton (N, C.) Robesonlan. f rs/cine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD — (NBA) — Robert S. Beanblossom Is the first telefilm casualty of the season. No, Beanblossom Isn't fading from the air. It's Just a character change, but * big one. No longer will he be the stumbling idiot originally Introduced to home screens In "My Hero." From now on he'll be more like Robert Cummlngs, who plays him, and who told me: "The change has nothing to do with our rating, which Is great. It's Just that the sponsors and I felt Beanblossom was becoming too much of a moronic Jerk. People who have seen me in a. lot of movies objected to my complete character switch. It was like try- in? to make a sweet little housewife out of Marlene Dietrich. "Now we're going to mako Bennblossom a normal fellow who just gels Involved In mart situations. He'll no longer be an idiot. He'll be a Walter Mitly-type guy." . There's a TV reunion cooking for William Powell and Myrna Loy In a video revival of the "Thin Man" 'series. Their agents say they're willing to do 39 half-hour telefilms a year If the pay is right. Jeff Donncll, who dotes on the part, may be forced to pass her forthcoming role as "Blondie" on television over to another actress unless she's permitted to wear a wig. The while bleach job .'-required to transform Jeff into a TV blonde is causing her hair to fall out, and her doctors warn against further dates with Ihe dye vale. TV In Short Takes Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.«r« close to announcing they will make movie-house features In addition to their" telefilms. Exhibitors haven't liked Roy's dedication'.to. television . . . Richard Carlsoi may beat Charles Laughton to'the home screens with poetry and literature readings.

Pfter fdion't Washington Column — Champion Gossipers in Korea Added Hazard to Protecting Ike Lawless Manhattan By DOUGLAS LARSKN NKA Stuff Corrusponilent (For Peter Kdson) W A S H I N G T O M 1 <NEA> — White House Secret Servicemen got a shock when Army Intelligence officers briefed them on how difficult It would be to keep Ike's movements i n Korea a secret. They were told that the "grapevine" there curried news faster limn tiny communications system which the Army hnd been able to devise to date. Douglas Larsen The A r ni y earned this the hnrcl way tit the start of the Korean lighting. U. s. officers were shocked to find that nformation which they thought was top secret had a strange wny of becoming street gossip. Even he most strict security efforts lave a pcculinr ineffectiveness in Korea, the Army admits. And the inovements of a personality like Ike, v/Ilh a fair-sized aarty accompanying him, were particularly vulnerable to being- discovered In this atmosphere. It 1 dense population' and word flies from niouth-to-moiUh. This kind of gossip IB actually^one of the few recreations left to the Koreans. Handles Wilson Su-n Gently After Charles E. Wilson, new Secretary ol Defense, made his first visit to the Pentagon, Robert Lovett, present secretary, was asked whether he had warned Wilson About the growing strife between the Nayy nnd Air Force. Lovett replied: Mornlngslde Heights In New York City, a whlU residential area bordering on Harlem, Cor years has been a no man's land and a scene, of violence. A citizen writing to The New York Times reports that his mother was Injured .by a mugger, latest of several crimes. He suggests that reliable citizens, both while and Negro, arm themselves HA vigilantes to keep the pence. The police, ht says, seem unable to do it. in the days of the Wild We,st every man carried H gun ami took care of himself. Manhntten Island seoms to be in the same fix. aim-toting citizens soon may resort to lynch law. Northern reformers have much to concern them outside of Southern problems. —Charleston (S. C.) Newa and Courier. "Heavens no. The Idea Is to get Mr. Wilson into the Job, not to scare him away." Poor Plym Is Pulverized A House of Commons official report provides some additional details of England's first atomic bomb test recently held In Australia: "Tbe object of the test was to Investigate the effects of an atomic explosion in a harbor. The weapon was accordingly plnqed in HMS Plym, a frigate of H50 tons, which was anchored in the Monte Beilo Islands. "Thousands of tons of water and of muck and rock from the sen bottom were thrown many thousands of feet Into the air and a high tidal wave was caused. The^eEfecte of blast and radioactive contamination extended over a wide area id HMS Plym was vaporized except for some red-hot fragments which were, scattered over one of :he Islands'and started fires in the dry vegetation. 'Soon after the explosion two naval officers undertook the dangerous task of f lying helicopters over,the heavily contaminated ln- [oon in order to take samples of the water so that its radioactivity could be -measured.. It may be said that Ihe weapon behaved exactly as expected nnd forecast in many precise details. There were no casualties." Fatal Faults Tiie Air Force has come up with EI preliminary report on the causes of tbe recent series of four C-119 Flying Boxen r crashes. It has been found that pilot error and faulty navigation were responsible for three. And the fourth, which crashed In Billings, . Mont., lost propeller. Viewing With Alarm According to the State Department word, the most potentially explosive situation which exists in Ike's new top staff Is between Mutual Aid Administrator Harold Stassen and the new Secretary of State, John Poster Dulles. They have always gotten along well. But the fear is that the two Jobs overlap In so many plnces, it's almost Impossible for some friction to be avoided. Only the very close friendship between Aver ell Harrhnan, current Eilri boss, nnd Dean Acheson has kept these two men from working up heal over various policy questions, it is reported. ' Shrewd^ and Fast Anyone trying to crash the SO THEY SAY We do not need to appease anyone. We can win the war in Korea and Stalin will have to accept, our winning It or accept a third world war. — William C. Bnllitt, former U. 3. ambassador lo Russia. . * * * ' Nothing can shatter the aggressive solidarity of world communism except Hie spontaneous solidarity of all the free peoples throughout th« world. — South Korean Foreign Minister Y. T. Pyun. + * t The present generation dow not draw lt« values from the Bible but from Hollywood »nd the •ewards of the flesh. — Scottish lawyer Hamlsh Masson. * + * Although we won the war against the Jap- miese, we turned over the fruits of the victory to Russia, giving them a toe-hold In the Pacific. — Sen. Robert A. Tatt 1R., O.). White House .to see Ike Is going to get a cool; efficient treatment from the man who will be in charge of screening visitors, Arthur Vnndenberg, Jr. This Is actually a very delicate and important job. A wrong turndown or brush-off can hurt feelings nnd get IKe in trouble. Letting crnckpots, cranks or ax-grinders In is just as bad. All during the campaign he handled this Job without a bobble character. Wilson-Wilson Feud Denied The story that there has been a running feud between the men who are both named Charles B. Wilson is now being vigorously denied. Even when they were in Washington together during World War II they only had a ^slight acquaintance, it is said.' The gag which has endured from the war days has It that the only time they irritated .each .other was when their relief checks got crossed up In the mail. . , The "Engine Charlie" handle for-the General Motors president the new defense boss—nnd the "Electric Charlie" name for the former war* mobilize!', GE's Wil- SL-.I, are coming in handy to distinguish the men. Viewing With Interest The association which observers will also be'watching with interest is that 'of Dulles and Wilson. It will be up to them to establish a very close working relationship. Lack of cooperation between Defense and State in the past has fouled up both foreign policy and defense planning. Effectiveness of such- cooperation, it has been shown in the past, rests mostly on the ability of the .wo top men to. get along well .ogether. What Fate for Veterans? Government personnel experts are predicting there will be vast [lumbers of court cases involving veterans trying to hold onto their jobs in the government when the new • administration takes over. They say that there will probably have to be several decisions from the Supreme Court on the various laws which guarantee veterans preference in the federal service. In spite of all the legislation protecting job rights of non-veterans under civil service, it is admitted that any one of them can be fired without appeal to a court, or even spade, allowing dummy's queen to win the trick. If declarer then continues by leading .the jack of spades, East correctly plays the king. This limits South to two spade tricks. ,j The situation Is just the reverse J In hearts. Declarer leads the queen j of hearts from dummy, and this lime East must play his king. This limits South to two heart tricks I If East failed to cover, the queen of hearts, would win, and declarer could then continue by finessing the Jack' of hearts.'

West led the clubs, and Sheinwold, queen" of who was too much administrative trouble. One Way of Doing It It is considered a good bet that Ike will ask Congress to make the Federal Security Agency a full department. It would elevate his appointee to the head of FSA, Oveta Culp Hobby, to cabinet rank. Fie promised that a woman (voulri get a cabinet job during tlie campaign. This is said to be his playing the South hand, saw at a glance that he might be limited to two tricks In each suit if he simply played "according to the book." To avoid this fate he played a low club from dummy and droppe< the six of clubs from his own . hand This false • card made it appear that East held the deuce of clubs and that the three of clubs was lite beginning of an encouraging signal. West fell for the swindle bj leading the eight of clubs next thus giving declarer three club tricks. This was enough to asuri the contract. 75 Years Ago In Blythevilte A claim has been filed in Mississippi County Probate Court-by the state against the Lee-Wilson estate, to collect an inheritance tax of $81,000.

JORDAN, M. D. It is gratifying that In recent ears so much more attention has been paid to good posture. Bus lines, railroads, airplanes, designers of school furniture, and many others have come to recognize that comfortable seating in good position Is of great importance, and tbe design of sealing equipment has in many cases been considerably improved. The three common postures are standing, sitting and lying. Good standing posture does not necessarily mean the position of atten- on required of military men on parade. As a matter of fact, long- conllnued standing al attention slows the blood circulation and too much blood gathers In Ihe lower extremities. This explains the sudden fainting of so many servicemen on parade. In standing, tlw weight may be shifted from cue foot to another and from the heel to the toes. The body, which is allowed to make such shifts, becomes less tired and Ihe muscles less tense. The body should be held erect with the knees and feel directed straight ahead. The abdomen * should be held fUU but not tense. The seat used when sitting ts important. The trunk and bead should be held straight above "the scat or tilted a little forward. The Height of [he crmlr from the floor ought to correspond to the distance of the legs from the knee to the lie el, Tlie back of the chair should be straight hut comfortably fitting. Too-low and too-soft seats lend to cause poor sitting posture. Because we are not all built alike, adjustability of seats Is desirable, (hough not always possible. Everyone spends a lot of time lying in bed. Many beds are softer than (hey should he. This causes too much relaxation of some muscles and tenseness of others. SOFT REDS CUSE BACKACHE Some backaches are produced hy undesirably soft beds. If this Is the case, Inner-spring mattress <?s may have to be eliminated. When the bed has too much sag, a piece of plywood can be placed under the mattress. Also, some manufacturers make "firm" mal- Ircsscs. But good posture also requires proper exercise. Exercise incieas- os the supply of air to the lungs. Improves the circulation and U •ors that feeling of well-being and health for which everyone ought to strive.
