Embroidered in gold around the | «(lge^f the patch is a Latin motto which, freely translated, mean* "vigilance is the price of freedom." We respectfully suggest that two blown-up reproductions of this insignia be dispatched to th« United States cap- , itol in Washington, one to be hung abov* the mairi door of the Senate chamber, the other above the door of the House. With such vivid reminders confronting them every time they walk Into the legislative hallfi, America's lawmakers might be stirred more often to disport themselves like statesmen who recognize their country's peri!. The legislators might be less likely to slash the Voice of America program to the bone without proposing a suitable Biibstitiite, .at a time when Russia and the satellite nations are ripe for a heavy propaganda barrage from the free world. And they might think twice before chopping $ 1,000,000,000 from the foreign aid program which we must count upon to bolster Europe's defenses both militarily and in the broader economic sense. Military and economic needs cannot easily be separated today. Lastly, they might be able to gel their minds off the past and focus on the problems of the present and future. The 82nd Congress had been a body of lawmakers largely.intent upon investigating past deeds and attitudes, while the critical needs of a troubled present too frequently go unsatisfied. Too many of these men behave as if they were living in a world all their own, free of external hazard. When some outside event does bring them up sharply, they look within their own realm,for cause. Thus everyting bad that has occurred in Korea, in China and the rest of the Far East is the fault of Americans who committed traitorous acts or, at least, gross errors. This seems to assume lhat the Kremlin is virtually incapable of decision, that it has no power lo act on its own. But in truth the members of Stalin's Politburo are very active mentally. And they could decide upon war tomorrow, whether there are no Communists in the U. S. State Department, or 26, RS Senator McCarthy claims. In a world containing Russian Communists, vigilance 'assuredly is the price nf freedom. Until Congress, as well as Eisenhower's headquarters, makes that its. motto, this country w« live in will not h* NEWS iATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, We Must Provide Asylum for Refugees There are about 200 Baltic refugee* In Die United States who ar« in danger of being deported. These people, mostly Estonians «nd Latvians, have no pa«»- porU nor any of th« other normal proofi of nationality and rightful entry. For a good reason, They escaped from Russian tyranny in their native lands, and bravely made their way to American *hore« in tiny boats whose «afe navigation called for stirring ieamanahlp. Under these circumstances, naturally there was little time for the formalities ao important to the immigration authorities. We in the United States hailed their courag* as an example of the will of free men to regain their liberties, But inevitably they came athwart the legal necessities. First, through executive action, they were granted temporary entry permit*. Theji bills were offered in Congress to provide for them outside regular immigration quotas. Now, however, the Senate Judiciary Committee hag announced indefinite postponement of these measures. This means these folk will have tb be deported soon, though most have now established homes here and have jobs. If America's warm greeting to these grave refugees meant anything, provision should be made without delay for their permanent residence among us. Views of Others Crime Committee's Work Will Have Lasting Effect The Seriate Crime Investigating Comniltte* has ended iu open hearings, but the etfecta i* It* work are likely to be fell for a long timt U/ com*. The disclosures which came during the long hearing* conducted by thl» group were reveajlng to many, thousands of law-abiding citizen*. They were revolting, too-enough to nauseate those who have respect for law and cider and common decencies. The Investigation dUclosed the prevalence of crime on every level of society. It revealed th* existence of graft and corruption In hlg)> pjicei, of widespread gambling being carried on openly and of drug addiction among even our children. AA a result of the committee's work, Congresg soon will have before It a serin of. specific legia- Utive recommendation* designed, to curtail th« activities of lawbreakers. It li to b* hoped th* proposal* will be strong ones and that prompt action will be taken upon them. But perh»p« the most encouraging result of the committee's work 1* that.

JORDAN, M.I). Written for SKA Service EDITORS: This is the first of a series of Dr. Jordan's columns dealing with contagious diseases likely to cause trouble soon after schools open. Soon after the opening of schools n the fall is the time when the common contagious diseases of childhood are most likely to cause trouble. The big four are measles, mumps./chickenpox, and whooping cough. They are so common among children that J am often asked if it Isn't best to expose small chUdren to such Infections intentionally and "get It over with." The answer (with the possible exception of chickenpox) is "don't." They are not harmless and It is better to avoid them if possible. Measles, for example, is not the simple thing many seem to feel More youngsters die from measles than from polio; It -often causes serious complications such a* bron- cho-pneumonia or bronchitis; even when mild the approximately five hundred thousand who have measles each year are kept out. of school or other activity for quite a long time The cause of measles is a virus, and this tiny living organism Is present In the secretions of th> mouth and nose during the first few days during which a person Is "coming down" with the disease. A sneeze or cough will carry the virus Into the air where It can be breathed In by anyone else around This makes measles especially contagious even before the skin rash appears. OPEN TO EXPOSURE It ij difficult* to avoid : exposure once an outbreak of'measles has started In a school Exposure certainly should not be sought but 1: it does occur, one has to consider the use of a substance known as immune globulin.
