He can't mean poker hands! similar exploitation, Our government, through its President and its State Department, can ilo much to encourage tlie conditions nhi-ond that will lend to such investment. Jt is in this direction that Eisenhower may move lo produce a inert effective buildup of the economic substance of the backward countries. Turning Point in Toft Trend If Senator Taft should win the majority 'leadership of the Senate in January, the political experts probably will mark tlifa turning point as the day Senator Cnrlson of Kajisfis declared for him. Carlson Is a close friend nnd political associate of General Kjsenhowpr. He did not speak in the general's behalf in aup- • porting Taft. Indeed, he mnde dear Ikfc's intention lo keep hands off the contest for the lop Senate post, Hut lie obviously spoke with the general's knowledge and con-scnt. That is (he important fact. It suggests Eisenhower is willing to have Taft lead the SenaU-. Republicans, mivy even prefer him to his chief rival, Senator Bridges of New Ilnmpnliirc, When Taft sharply assailed Ike's choice of Martin Durkin to be Secretary of Labor, many senators began shying flway from the Oliiojin for fear support of him would look like criticism of their new President. Hut Taft baa since calmed down, having indicated he wants no break with Kiaenhower. So the trend toward Taft has taken on weight. Carlson's move could lit the key step. It may mean that Ike recognizes, as do most senators, Ibat Taft has high qualifications as a leader and his guidance of any White House legislative program could be extremely vital to its ultimate success. Ike May Plan to Pave Way For Investments Abroad Advance indications are that General Eisenhower as President will seek to maintain the Point. Four program of technical assistance to underdeveloped areas. Yet at the same time sisus exist .that he will attempt lo go well beyond that to a more realistic plan of iiUornn- tional economic development. - Like the Marshall Plan, the Point Four idea was an original noti6n marked by high purpose,-, It goes beyond the mere doling out of finnncial help, to the granting instead of cqiiipinont and technical guidance that will aid backward lands to get their own economics on a higher sell" T sustaining basis. Spelled out, this has meant sending agricultural exptrts into India fo teach Indian farmers b'ow to improve I heir crop yields, how to care for their soil, how to use new seed and animal feed and better farm machinery. H has meant sending health and sanitation specialists into many plact-.s to try !o create healthful conditions of living and working. This aid, especially as if affects food production in India and elsewhere, has proved its worth. No one who looks carefully at the present and prospective future btnefits will question Point Four's value. 1 What can be put in ((uestion is how much of the development load Point Four can carry. In promoting and defending the program, the Truman administration has seemed to say that Point Four .is the supreme answer to the troublts of the underdeveloped regions. Hut there is strong reason to believe this is not the case at all. Bringing these lands out of the economic morass is not just a matter of making their peoples healthier, boosting food output and touching thim some industrial tricks. They eventually will need substantial increases in industrial plant and equipment if they are ever to satisfy many of their basic needs and thus raise their over-all living standards. (Jovtrnment grants could help to achieve this goal, but we are trying earnestly to get away from this sort of program. Experience with the Marshall Plan has shown that government grants are no economic cure-all. The most hopeful solution lies in greater private American investment- in these foreign lands. American capital is eager to find outlet tliere; businessmen here ask only that a "favorable climate" be created. By that they mean that the underdeveloped nations should assure America its investments will be adequately protected against unwarranted teizur*, txcesaiv* taxation, and Views of Others 'I Cover the Waterfront" A Job for State Legislatures AaUnllon for a iialton\vWe Presidential preferential prlmnry has quieted down since July, mainly because the much-crltlclzed conventions met Ihe test o! the times and nominated the best candidate In each party. But the Idea Is sllll kicking around, and It has some merit to It. We are not yet convinced that Ihe conventions otiBht to he replaced with a 1 nationwide primary that would actually nominate the candidates. One bis objection to the plan Is that It would causs Hie equivalent of twogcnornl elections In encli year. As candidates fought for top spot In the primaries, total campaign costs would skyrocket out ot sight, giving a strong cdgc.ta the candidate with the innst money behind lUm. Another Is that It would be virtually impossible for a political unknown like Clov.

Uniform laws for entering a candidate In the prl- nVarJes should be ndoptcd. And insofar AS possible, the slutcs ought to pet together and decide how firmly convention delegates are to be bound by primary results.

Peter Edson'i Washington Column — Loyalty Checks of Americans On UN Staff Present Problem WASHINGTON — spite 4 of nil the (NEA) — In! investigations, charges find countercharges, the full story of the loyalty checks on American c 111- zens w h o are employes of the United Nations has not come o 11 t. The question really goes back lo 1048 when the United Nations Peter EdMn .staff being Oov. r was first organized. been named to the UN staff. Left U. S. Wide Open T 0 Spying hair to HD take Into account the Byrnes of South Carolina WRSJ Secretary of State nt the Lime. He set the orlgiiint policy that the United States should not Interfere with the ' UN secretary genenil in the employment of his stnff. The purpose was to allow the UN to bulid np R truly iuterrm- Lioual orgnnl/.ntlon. Its employes were to exercise tlielr first loyally lo the organization, and not to any ono country. This wtis In accord with Article 100 of the UN Charter: Tt specified: "fn the performance of their duties, the secretary general and the staff shall not seek or receive instructions from any ROV- ernment or from any other authority external lo the organization." Tills wns the way things stood for about three years. Then in 1019, John B. Ilickerson, a U. S. career diplomat, was named assistant secretary of state n charge of United Nations affairs. He found considerable concern over the questionable loyalty to the' United Slates of a number of American citizens who hnd restriction in Article 100 of the UN Charter, quoted ahovj^, and the Byrnes policy of non - Interference on UN staff selection. But It was recognized that the Untied States, us host nation to the UN, was in a particularly sensitive position. This country wa.s left wide open to possible spying from foreign officials of the UN. Fear of this possibility was sub- sin ntlateri by the Judy Coplon Valentin Gubltchev disclosures of Gubitchev was R Russian engineer employed by the United Nations. After conviction in the United Stales, he was allowed to return to Russia.

Passport Division cannot pre - judge applications and guarantee such decisions for the future.. Another handicap \v&s that the U, S. government could not give the UN "classified" or secret information, of any kind. This included FBI and other loyalty investigation reports on U.S. citizens. It • was because of these objections .that the plan now in. force Was adopted. Under H, UN Secretary General ~ Trygve Lie has given the State Department the names of his American employes. Verbally, n -State Department official has been reported to Lie that John Derek and Columbia are calling it a day. One of the reasons for John's let-me-out plea is his disappointment at losing out on the lead role in "From Here to Eternity," he doesn't want to dance in flickers any longer. He's campaigning for straight dramatic roles.

OXK TO KKMRKKR There have been many speaker introductions at Hollywood clambakes, but Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy's zippy \vordage in presenting Samuel Goldwyn as the keynoter of (he Publicists Guild's annual Panhandle Dinner was a classic.

"Why," nsks Mrs. R., "should! some people suffer so much Irom broken bonrs? I have broken my wrist and both le^s at different limes during 1 the past year. This has kept me in Che hospital a lot and caused a terrible expense, and has kept me at my wit's end." Anyone who had such nn l experience in such a short lime wouUI be desperate. However, it Is not possible to tell from the letter quoted whether the sad experience Is just one of those things, or! vhether it is the result of soine- liing more significant. Some people, for example, ftre m'Ucniarly liable to accidents and he term, "accident prone ness, *,> uns come into use for those who seem to go from one Injury to another. But disease also may be responsible. Any disease which weakens the bnne structure will lead to easier Various kinds of tumors of the bnne and snch diseases as osteomyelitis, which is an Infection of the bony tissue, may be nt fault. Many of those diseases of the bone cnn be treated satisfactorily by modern methods. In addition to sUIclly bone diseases there are -some rather rare conditions which Attack the bones and which may make them brittle nnd CP.M* to break. One of Is known as osteitis fibrosa oysUca This condition cnn be cither localized In a single bone or it can involve a number of different ones. It causes the calcium which makes bone hard to be withdrawn aud the development of a cyst or sac-like area or nreas. Wherever such srvc- iiko «ve«s are located, tho bone is imlurallv lo--.-* strong and ve?lsl:ml lo Ib.Tii bone. The generalized type is usually f t> KBtJA VUDM4T Itt Mhfl •{ the parathyroid glands lying in the neck. When this is the case, treatment is directed at the tumor which should either be removed surgically or treated by X-ray, Tim localized variety of osteitis' fibroin cysticn is quite different. In many cases It is not even recognized until there has been an unexpected fracture often caused by a slight Injury. Contents Ot S.ic Ilrmovecl Once the diagnosis has been nade, treatment Is directed at the affected area. It consists of an operation, the essential features of which ore scraping and removal of the entire contents nnd lining of the cyst or sac-like structure. These are a few of Ihe conditions which are sometimes called brittle bones. Anyone who sustains a broken bone from what appears to be only a minor Injury, or has several In quick succession, should have n thorough examination tn order to make sure that some general disease or diseases of the bones nre not responsible. Tn any event. Mrs. R, or other* like her. should be most careful to dodge further injury. O JACOBY ON BRIDGE Million Dollar Play Helps Bridge Player By OSWALD JACORY \VviUen For NKA Service TAKE a look at the West cards In ociny's hand and try to pick out he right defense. Imagine that •ou can see only Ihe West hand nd tlie dummy and see wnat else •Q;I can Imagine as the play de- lops. As West, you open Ihe Jack of clubs against the contract of three dollar play, let's do a little thinking out loud. You know that declarer Is ready to take four diamonds and two hearts as soon as he regains the lead. He has already fcaken one club trick, and you suspect that he has two more club tricks In reserve. Hence you know that declarer will win nine tricks unless you can find some way to tuke four more defensive tricks first. The only suit in which ths.set- ting tricks can be taken is the spade suit. Hence you must shift to spades at once. It Is important to pick Ihe right spade, for the nine of spades Is the only lend that will defeat the contract. When you lead the nine o( spades dummy must cover with the ten, and East wins with the jack. East then returns Ihe deuce of spades to your king, picking up South's eight of spades on the way. Now you are In position to lend the three of spades through dummy, and your partner can win both spade tricks with his ace-seven. If you unwisely begin the spades by leading the three of spades, dummy will play low, and. East will have to play the jack lo win the trick. Now dummy has a sure stopper In spades. If you begin the spades by lead- Ing the king, you cnn then lead through the dummy only once. Hence your side will take only three spade tricks histcad of the four that you need to defeat, the contract.
