Give 'New Printer' Time Tcy'Publish'History of 1953 The United States need not resolve . to be different In 1953. For 'the first time since 1933, its affairs will be in the hands of another political parly. A new team 19 taking over, with a new outlook. What Ami-ricans Can resolve is to give this team a fair chance to show what it can do. General Eisenhower was handed a mandate to invoke change. But in this rugged world, change cannot necessarily be. wrought overnight. The Korean war, inflation, coninw- iiism in governmtnt, fedcrrtk economy, all the issues that seemed to resist solution under the Democratic administration, will' not now with sudden magic yield to easy answers. The party in power has Wad years to grapple with these problems, years to examine the catalog of alternatives. The Eisenhower administration is not going to solve them nil in the space of one to six months. Tli6 people voted for action and fresh thinking and have a right to expect these things. But in their eagerness for solutions, they must, still realize the improbability of miracles. Success, if it comes, will come slowly. New administrators uteri time to learn their way, time to cut nwny the deiulwood of past government habit. Complexity is the great common clcnom-. • inalor of today's problems. New policy is not born quickly out of such a wilderness of difficulties. Americans, then, must be patitnt wilh their new leaders. That docs not .s:iy they should be any less exacting in their demand for a better result. N'or does it say they should not be thoroughly watchful of their social gains, hard•won through 20 years. But, while it would be wrong to expect too much too soon, the people may rightfully look for an early shift in the political climate of Washington. Obviously, new .solutions' grow out of new viewpoints. The capital's climate this year and after will be conservative, because the .American citizenry voted for a conservative President and Congress. The answers produced must be judged against that background. Here and there one detects petulant disappointment over Eisenhower's choice of cabinet officers. There is complaint he is not reproducing Democratic patterns. Bui if the people had wanted those patterns, they would have chosen Governor Stevenson. Of Eisenhower and his men they may indeed demand performance. Surely, though, they will appreciate that this performance cannot be a weak carbon copy of the actions of the predecessor government. The history pag« of 1953 will b« TrTORSDAY, /AW. I, written with fresh ink, «!ean paper, new type and new processei of printing,with R new master printer In charge. That is what the American people ordered on Nov. 4. Let them resolve not to ask either a rush job or a substitute out of old atock on the shelves. Kefouver's Running Among the Democrats tbore still seems to be a lot of uncertainty as to who will hold the party reins in the next four years. But there is virtually no doubt about one tiling: Senator Kefauver of Tennessee is running hard for the presidential nomination in 195G. As a mallei- of fuel, the senator got away from the post fairly early on the night of Nov. 4, Soon after it became evident that Governor Stevenson, who beat him out at Chicago for the 1052 nomination, was in for a licking. Kefauver started circulating about among his party col- JeaKues, shaking hands, passing a word or two. The large collection of influential party men at the Washington headquarters spelled opportunity. Since thbii, he has made a high- minded speech or two, has recognized Stevenson as the, titular leader but cast flume doubt on how much that ought to mean, and has behavqd continously like a manbeiit on keeping in the public eye. And he can do it, too, for he's got the Senate for a forum. Supporters of 'Stevenson for Another try haven't yet figured out how to keep thtir man up front. Views of Others Advice on Foreign Aid In the waning days ol his Administration, President Truman lias received an excellent report from one ol his top o/ficinl* — the report by Secretary ol Commerce Clitules Sawyer on his ob- servallons during a 10-nation survey In .Europe, "While we were most favorably Impressed with the high qimllly of mnny representatives of Uio United States abroad, 1L would appenr Ihnt their efficiency and mornlc are impaired by the fact thnt there are' too ninny people doing too ninny things," Mr. Sawyer snld. "Confusion and wasted effort arc the result. . . "The solution is the abolishment of emergency agencies whose is either completed or cim be absorbed by the regulnr departments. . . We still have Mutual Security Agency missions in soma countries to which we arc not giving and for som» time have not given economic nid," Secretary sawyer snid" forcefully that' the solution of this maze of handout agencies is not "the crealion of one new overall permanent de- IHirlincnt" whose only .^assignment would- be to give nway Uncle Siim!s" money or handle purely foreign economic affairs,". ." He recommended, Instead, that' the State Department take-over nil foreign economic and political activities and ctiU In experts from other departments If they are needed. And a more Important recommendation by Secretary Sawyer w'ns given In lite statement that tho time has come lo stop direct, aid, with some exceptions, such as military aid and reduced economic- aid to Italy and Greece, and to turn to long-term help In the form of private investment and Increased trade. European countries, Mr. Sawyer said, should stabilize their economies, attack inflation, work toward convertibility of tlieir currencies and create condltloa 1 ! attractive to American Investment. That is the kind of aid which the countries of Europe, with the help of American investment capital, could now give themselves —'-.and which they should Give themselves. That kind of aid would be sound find lasting. U is too late for Secretary sawyer's fine advice lo do the Truman Administration any good. But it Is advice which the Incoming Elsenhower Administration could heed with profit for Itself and for tho people of America. —Chattanooga News-Free Press.

WASHINGTON — (NBA) — The military search for an answer to the Korean riddle includes eight principal moves. They are: A c o m p 1 e te blockade of the China coast. More American aid for France in Indo- China. M Q r e aid for Chinese Nationalists on Formosa. Withdrawal of Peter Edx>n the U. S. 1th Fleet from Formosa Straits. Sending at least three more U. S. divisions to (he Orient. USB of Chinese Nationalist divisions cither against the Chinese mainland or In Korea. ' Equipping of 10 more South Korean divisions. Use of atomic weapons. The time limit on just getting ready (o do all these things is said to be 12 to 14 months. The cost of doing; them all has been .conservatively estimated at doubling the present cost of the Korean war. This Is roughly five billion dollars n year. • The ultimate action might be a request to Congress for n declaration ot war' against Communist China. No one is pushing this action. There Is no apparent agreement on which, if any, ol the above measures would work. There ts a hope that many of the measures would not have io be used. This Is based on H belief that a mere preparation to carry out :hcse plans would force the Communists to accept a. peace settlement, British Object to Blockade Decision on the actual program to adopt is a lirst order ot. business for the Eisenhower administration In its announced purpose of carrying on a more aggressive policy. The easiest new action to carry out is the blockade against the China coast, from Indo-China to Korea. IV is considered an effective measure to use. It would shut off shipments of (in, rubber, petroleum products and other strategic materials. Objection to this action comes principally from [lie British, because of their Intercsls in Hong Kong ami the use of British ships In the China trade. Other ships in this trade are principally of Greet, and Panamanian registry. But all three of these countries are under obligations to the United States. A firm stand by this country could force acceptance of the blockade plan. A top priority for military assistance to Indo-China is based on two considerations. The first ts a belief that the war there can be won before there Is direct Chinese Communist interference. The second Is that it is short-sighted policy to continue bleeding France for the Indo-Chinese war. It is more important to build up France as the keystone of western European defense. U. S. \Vouln Equip Nationalists Building up Chinese Nationalist strength is necessary before these troops could be used cither in Ko- rea or In action against the Chinese mainland. On tropical Formosa, the uniforms of these troops are shorts, shirts and tennis shoes, which would be no good in a, Korean or Chinese winter. Por actnal combat, Nationalist troops would have to be just as completely equipped as new Korean divisions. The cpst per division Is roughly S-10 million at a minimum. This cost would have to be borne by the United States. The ability ot additional Korean and Chinese divisions alone to bring the Korean war to' a decision is questionable.-II they can't do it, more U. S. divisions would have to be sent to the Orient. So the xvar would get worse before it ;ot better, and this might be a hard bill of goods to sell the American taxpayer. Use of atomic weapons to force a military decision in Korea Is a subject for hot debate. Opinions differ widely on how effective they would be against Chinese .Communists who are dug deep into the North Korean mountains in trenches, tunnels and gun emplacements. Use of'atomic weapons might also broaden the war. One viewpoint Is that a couple of hundred A-bomtis would clean put North Korea. The other is that there aren't half a dozen targets in North Korea worth wasting an A: bomb on. If the decision 13 made to try to mop up North Koea clear to the Yalu River, preparations musl be made to hold a boundary nearly three times as long as the present battle line.

Wilh so many people donating their blood, and with increased interest in the blood because of various problems of childbirth and the like, it Is not surprising that many questions in this field come up. Q—Could you settle a discussion by explaining blood typing? Which is more rare, O or AB Mood? J, G. A—The blood of human beings is divided into - various typos or groups, largely as a reflection of whether certain kinds of clotting reactions of the red blood cells occur. Tlie subject is a complicated • one. but there are tour standard blood groups called O, A, B and AB. There are more people in groups O and A than in the others: 45 and per cent, respectively; 8 per cent of the people arc considered to have B blood and 4 per cent have AB blood. People who have O blood are said to be "universal donors" because their blood does not ordinarily cause any reaction If transfused into those who have other types of blood.

My mother-in-law Is mean lo the children and beats them all the time. What 1 the best thing to do? A—You should go to n social service agency or a lawyer or minister lo work out some schema so that you can give your children, a happy home with you. It ts well known Ihnt the health as well as the satisfactory development .In ' other ways of children depends very largely on a healthful, well- adjusted home environment. Q—Plsaa« say tomelhing nboul granular lids. Can this condition be caused by cigaret smoke as well as eyestraln? Mrs. L. B, A—It is doubtful that cigarel smoke would have anything to do with the appearance of granular lids. In this condition Hie eyelids become puffy and stick together, especially at night. It can usually be cured rather promptly nnd successfully by an ointment which your physician can give you. Q—Can a person catch syphilis from a toilet scat? I have heard that one can. Header. A—Some other source of Infection Is Infinitely more likely. Q—I have type O blood. I have heard that this does not clot, ts that true? II. H. M. A—No. not unless combined with something else. O— Can one get the germ of tuberculosis by handling letters from a patient in a tuberculosis sana- tarimn? R. O. A—It Is most unlikely. So far as I know, tuberculosis sanatorlums disinfect any letters from patients which might be contaminated with the germ of tuberculosis. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Be Determined in Your Bridge Game By UStt'ALI) JACOBY U'ritlcn for NEA Scrvict When a bridge hand is being played, my friend Sol Mogul is ns hard ns nails; al any other lime he's ns warm as a toaster.
