No Political Storms Seen; Dulles Can Soar High For a long time Secretary of Stale Dean Acheson has been the prisoner of his critics. He has been unable to make or execute certain kinds of policy, because to ctb so \v onld have aroused n storm of opposition that might have stymied nil policy. The U. S. Foreign Service, vital overseas wing of yie Stale Department, has been similarly entrapped. Fearing to do anything that somehow might not look good !n the headlines of 1055, American diplomats have dojie relatively little of constructive value. But In all the head-shaking over this unhappy condition, a few important things appear to have been overlooked. If the State Department and the Foreign Service were as strong as they ought to be, then they could not so easily be captured. What has happened, therefore, is a reflection not merely of the strength of the State Department's opposition, but of^the department's own weakness. Some observers feel this weakness has been developing over a long period. The department's prestige, thest men say, has been so marred that it is totally out of key with America's position as the most powerful nation on earth. Many factors undoubtedly account for the evident decline. In rtcent times, the ascendancy of the foreign aid establishment has given rise to a new phenomenon, the economic ambassador, to riva Ithe traditional "political" ambassador. It is entirtly possible, too, that the growing complexity of world events has outdated the practice of choosing top domestic campaign contributors. The incoming Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles, would thus seem to be confronted with a double opportunity. He will enjoy reasonable freedom to make policy Without fear of being swarmed over by domestic political opponents of the Eisenhower administration. There will be opposition, of course, but it is unlikely to have the fury of that which greeted Achtson at every turn. More than that, Dulles will have the chance to rebuild the prestige and power of the State Department, including the Foreign Service, into an establishment worthy of the preeminence of America in world affairs. If Dulles can make American diplomacy abroad a symbol of high purpose, dignity, responsibility and consistent policy, he will have carved himself an enduring niche in the long line of American secretaries of State, Buchenwald: From 2 Sides We read that the East German Communists are going to level the infamous Nazi concentration camp at Buchenwald and plant trees on the spot. If Buchenwald were in West' Germany, the free world could take their news as another sign that the German people realize the depth of their guilt in World War II and are honestly deltr- mined to earn a respected place in the family of nations. But when this happens in Red-controlled Germany, H different sort of thought occurs. One imagines that the ruthless men in the Kremlin have mere- y passed the word od wnto their German puppets: Wipe out Buchenwald. We don't need it. We have plenty of concentration camps of our own. And maybe we can get a little credit before world opinion if we flatten this one. Views of Others Some Baloney Perhaps That was a modestly sage observance made by Ralph W. Hardy, radio-television spokesman when he told a Congressional committee that not all campaign speeches are Inspirational. We don't know how Mr. Hardy learned It but he says that people In droves turned off their sets during political programs. The public got tired ol solid period* of "political commercials." Nor could the broadcasters pick and choose. They are prevented by law from censoring political talks and they must give equal time to all candidates. Mr. Hardy expressed the hope (hat In due lime politicians will learn to utilize more skillfully their radio and TV time. It docs require skill lo speak coherently and with sound Judgment, to discus* the Issues of the day rather lhan to chase rabbits of prejudice all over the lot. It candidates exhibited such a skill and such fortlulehtncss, we believe there would be less 'turning off of sets during their speeches. They must remember that It Isn't even considered Impolite to turn off a radio or TV set when nothing but baloney Is corning over the air. — Shelby IN.C.) Star. Official Junkets Oscar Ewlng's trip around the world at public expense isn't the first Junket by.a public official and It won't ,be the last one, but Comptroller General Lindsay Warren Is entirely correct In dc- 'mandlng R full accounting and Justification for this particular Junket. What useful purpose may be served by the eight-week trip on the eve of Mr. Swing's departure from office has not been explained by him or by the Federal Security Agency of which he-Is. administrator. Congressman Gross harbors the distinct Impression that no public good Is In view, and we detect a similar suspicions on the" part of Comptroller Gcn- . cral Warren, who Is:charged by Congress with the responsibility of finding out how taxpayers' dollars are spent. — Washington Post. Advertising Gains Perhaps there is no more reliable barometer of business conditions today than the volume of newspaper advertising. Newspaper advertising has chalked up a phenomenal gain of 100 per cent In Die last decade, and no slackening In the rate of increase Is evident. Newspapers In the 100 cities of the nation comprising a survey carried seven per cent more advertising In October than In the same month last year. It Is held by some that when newspaper advertising Increases In volume It is an Indication that merchants' stocks are not moving and her- culean efforts are needed to spur business. The last 10 years have revealed that this theory does not tell the whole story. Businesses large and small Increase their advertising volume when they are confident there is business to be had, and because they do not want to see undue volume of boom trade diverted to wide awake competitors. _ Mnttooti (III.)

But Impression that NA TO Is Falling Apart Is Incorrect, Officials Say By PKTKR EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON —<NEA(— Several misconceptions about the progress of the North Atlantic Treaty Orgnirzatlon have been spread on Ihe record, according to American officials return :ng from the P n r 1 s NATO council meeting.

Tiro .Major Questions Were Solved The two major accomplishments were a solution of Ihe long-standing American-British dispute over the Mediterranean command, and a revision of the somewhat complicated and hard-to-explaln "infrastructure." This word, to which Secretary Lovett says he is mildly allergic, is intended to cover all the facill- unrealistic at Ihe time, have no- vhere near been met.

The third slice, made at Lisbon, was $425 million with the U. S. share about 43 per cent, or J132 million. The fourth slice, or rather the first Installment on '.he fourth slice, arranged for at Paris, was for S230 million, with the U. S. contribution cut to 40 per cent, or 592 million , decisions were possible. He got The total outlay here Is $065 mil- lion, of which. $380 million is U.S. money. The expectation Is that at the next NATO council meeting in the spring:, with .President Eisenhower's representatives on hand, another $230 million slice will be agreed to. Frank C. Nash. Mr. Lovett's deputy for military assistance programs, takes up the defense of NATO here with the explanation that the cut in General Ridgway's proposed S429 million budget was much the same kind of an arrangement. European governments operate on a different budget year than the U. S. At Paris Ihev could appropriate only about half this sum, or the S239 million. The hope is that they will appropriate the balance, at the next NATO council meeting. It this materializes—and it may not—it will represent not a cut in Genera! Rfdgway's budget, but meeting it in'two slices instead of one. On the failure of NATO to meet Us 25 active and 25 reserve division goal set at Lisbon last year. Mr. Nash declares that there has been a fundamental change in concept since General Rldgivay took over from General Eisenhower. It was on General' Eisenhower's insistence while he was &ATO commander-tn-chief that this 50- division goal was set. General Eisenhower wanted skeleton divisions on the line If nothing more, with the expectation that the ranks would be gradually filled in as more recruits were called up and trained by the NATO countries. General Rldgway has changed all this. He wants full strength divisions on his front line, "couverture" as the French call it. After that he will work towards getling his' defense In depth through the reserve divisions. It is this change In concept that is said to exaggerate the failure to meet the Lisbon goals. the Doctor Says— Written (or NEA Service Bj EDWIN !• JORDAN, M.l>. Mrs R. writes, "1 rniiRli, cniiRh, cough all the time. Sometimes I bring up a lot of phlegm, but no cough medicine I take seems to help for very long. Could this be bronchitis?" This could be bronchitis, though, of course, there are other causes for a chronic cough. At any rate. U seems (oolish to let a cough run cough medicine Instead of finding out what the trouble really is. Nol only Is It foolish, but it can be dangerous, since there may be something'scriously wron^ with the lungs or other parts of the breath- Ing passageways which may lead to complications and even danger lo Hie. Suppose Ihls Is bronchitis diagnosed after suitable examination? What then? The problem Is to find out what Is causing the Irritation to the breathing passageways known as bronchi, lending'to tile lungs, which gives bronchitis Its name. It may be Infection, or it may be some other Irritant breathed In with the air. Bronchitis Is usually considered lo be of the acute or the chronic variety. In the former, the disease is ^likely to start suddenly with symptoms similar lo those of an ordinary cold. Heaviness or pains over the chest are likely to be present. - Olhcr symptoms may or may not be noticed, but the most characteristic, sign Is a cough which comes off and on and causes i;ood deal of distress. Quite often the acute disease passes in a week or so, but loo frequently It leads to chronic bronchitis In which the cough simply docs not go away. If the cause'can be uncovered and corrected, well and gpod. This, however, Is not always easy, and U Is olten necessary to use drugs which may relieve Ihe symptoms somewhat. Also, everyone who has bronchitis — Ihe chronic variety In particular — should be built up to the best possible physical condition, Try Cltmnlc Change In Ions-lasting .cases of bronchitis in which nothing seems to be of much avail, n change of climate may hnvc to be considered If the victim lives in an area In which Ihe temperature Is low and changes a good deal from day lo night. Sometimes improvenionl occurs rather rapidly In such cases when a person goes to a warm, mild climate, although miracles from Ihls cannot be expected. What everyone with a long-lasting cough should remember Is that this Is,not something lo laugh otf, nor Is It likely | O be relieved by patent cough remedies, and It should not be Ignored lest a chronic slate ot bronchilis set In, or even worse compllcallons follow. GIRLS that know all the answers may have been associating with questionable characters. — Russell- vills (Ark,) Tribune. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Point-Count an Aid To Better Bridge n.r OSWALT) JACOBT Written for N'EA Service Monday Is bridge lesson day.- and as usual I will discuss bidding according to the point-count method so that beginners and average players can see how the experts bid. Just in case you're not familiar with the point-count, here it Is: count NORTH V KS » Q 9 7 3 * J 108 I W EST B/ i ST *IOOfl74 AQ5 ¥ Q10S « AH * AB3 South 1 N'.T.

Pass Kisl Pass Opening lend —4 10 26 points to make a game; 33 points for.a small slam; 31 for a grand slam. rn today's hand South's opening bid of one no-trump shows balanced distribution, stoppers In at least three suits, and a count of 16 to 18 points. North can well afford to raise to three no-trump with a count 'of 10 points. North knows that the combined count Is between 26 and 28 points, which is ample for game but not enough for slam. Possession of the right count does not necessarily make the game contract for you. It is still necessary to play the cards properly. In the case of today's hand. South must make the correct play at the first trick. He must play low from dummy and win with the ace of spades In the South hand. South now leads one of the minor suits, and West takes the ace at once. West continues spades, and South must finesse the jack. For all South can tell. West may be leading from a long suit headed by the queen of spades, in which ease the finesse will succeed. If the finesse loses, and if East can continue the suit, the spades will then break 4-3. and the defenders can take at most two spade tricks and Uvo' aces. In this case the spade finesse loses, and the suit Is broken, 5-2. Declarer is saved, however, by the fact that East cannot continue spades after whining . with his queen. No matter which suit East returns, South can easily regain the lead and knock out the toher ace while dummy still has a stopper In spades. Now observe what happens If declarer makes the mistake of playing the Jack of spades from the dummy at first trick. East covers with the queen of spades, and one of South's stoppers Is knocked out at once. Declarer must develop both minor suits In order to make his contract, and therefore goes after one of them at once. West takes the first of his aces and continues spades, thus forcing out declarer's remaining spade stopper. West Kill regain the lead with his other ace In time to set the contract \vlth the rest of his spades. the eye-popping scenes have been censored out of the German film for Its U. S. showings.
