High Tension 'Success' Has Lost Real Meaning of Living We've been hearing for years that many of our top business executives kill themselves with the strain of overwork. Perhaps most of us have felt Ihis situ- tion was just an tiiit'orhinnte accompaniment of modern living about which nothing could be done. But now conies a suggestion that this tense pace is neither normal nor necessary, even for today. Writing in Collier's magazine, Howard Whitman quotes psychiatrists as declaring it is an abnormal, neurotic drive rather than brains, energy or ambition that leads K man to punish himself with work and possibly "succeed himself to death." Business leaders can amass iilent of evidence to support their contention that heir problems and burdens have mounted to dizzy heights in the last two decades, and that their own tensions have risen in proportion. The doctors, however, decline to admit that most executives have to work as hard as they often do. The insist that the men who let work dominate their lives are (nil of balance in some way. They say some have a distorted idea of life that allows no place for fun and rest. Some men simply don't know how to use free time and tie themselves to work io avoid boredom. Others are ridden liy fears—of failure, and competing executives, of insecurity they often can't define So these high voltage individuals focus so hard on making a living that they forget all ahotii making a life. They deprive their families or badly needed companionship and guardianship. Thux lose Ihe matchless riches oJ leisure. I he fulfill- inent of spiritual wants that can't he satisfied in the grubbing world rif work Antf into the Imrgain, they kill themselves. In so doing, they ro b business of brain power, training ami leadership. Thus they defeat the very purport's for which thev an., supposedly slaving. The doctors' advice In business executives is to grow up, t,, slop racing each other to Ihe grave and grasping fur Ihe symbols of life instead of life it.solf. Any sensible pi-i-.son would bf likcly to agree with Dr. Leo II. Hartemeier nl Detroit, whom Whitman guoles as lollows: "The grnwn-up niau has his prestige and security will)in him. ile doesn't have to make a million dollars He doesn't need the biggest tar. His joy comes from being a person, a fully realised hti- nia.n being." et's Irritate 'Em When Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia split will) Kussist last .year, we were warned by our foreign affairs experts not to expect niticli benefit from the *vpnl. But it is clear we are reaiiing some (ARK.)' COOTIER NEWS *dv»iit«gt from it. Russia's anger over Tito led to her witliili'Hwal of support /or his territorial claims in Austria. Thus one of the main roadblocks to an Austrian peace treaty was removed. On the other hand, Yugoslavia's wralli over the Soviet-inspired Comin- foi-i)) campaign against the Tito regime has induced Ihe Alarslial to atop helping the Gi'eek Communist rebels. By closing the Greek-Yugoslav fron- lier and halting aid to the rebel cause, Tito has given the Greek government a big lift in its hitherto largely efforts lo stamp out the rebellion. If Stalin and Tito can just stay mad—ns it .seems they will—the western powers ought to rack up a pretty good score from this situation after all. VIEWS OF OTHERS Income-Bearing Property Ought to Pay Taxes Tlip University of l,ouisville is the object of locnl pride and interest, one of Hie city's great, socnl assets. It is easy, therefore, lo plead such a case as that which is presently being discussed. This is Ihe idea that the university buy part of Lincoln Park, uulld on it and rent the property. From the operation, it is calculated, there will be enougn to pay off the investment in 33 years and leave a balance, about $25,000 a year, for tlie university budget. The result would be obtained by invoking the principle of tax exemption lor properly ol educational in.Mitntlons. However, tax exemption in this ease would be an abuse of liie principle. The Courier-Journal has long (elt. and many times lias expressed an opinion to tins effect, that it is unfair and dxtigerou.s lo exempt from taxation tin income-bearing property of schools, charl- t«ble Institutions or churches. Supporting this, thought, in recent years there has been a trend ol courts to look critically al historic exemptions under section 170 of Hie Kentucky Constitution. Three years ago. m an opinion that a cliucli-owned properly rented to a private business should be taxed, Judge Lawrence Speckman said: "The courts must stand Intn • gainst any «t>uxe of the exemption allowed under the Constitution and the laws of the commonwealth so tliHt the burden of carrying on the government may be borne eqiMtly by all its citizens." What the judge seemed to say was that exemptions of tlie sort are unfair because they force all oilier pioperty owners who do pay taxes to contribute to thr tax-free church or institution. But these are worthy cause, you may say. To be sure. However, everything else thai a government supports thiough its lax revenue is a worthy cause, or els« it has no place in the budget, city taxrs on a development such as proposed at Fourth and Guthrie are calculated at «63,360 a year. This would be lost, if the exemption were allowed to tlie university as owner. By extension of the principle, more and more valuable property might bt acquired by cluirchs, schools and eleemosynary institutions until largrT.ind larger chunks ol the public tax assets waiffiToe gone. There would be less and less public money for services. The problem of (ax exemption is very real to Louisville. The title of much valuable downtown pioperty rests with institutions claiming immunity —the Kenyon Building, the Greyhound Bus station, the Steiden and Kaufman-Starsu stores on Fourth Street, .for example. The title Holders include Union College of Barbourville, the Baptist and Presbyterian seminaries, the Free Public Library, the Home, of the Innocents, the Children's free Hospital and many others. While the court of appeaLs in 19466 began upsetting old concepts of exemption rights, there is still need ol definitions. •Tlie Lincoln Park proposal is the third ol the sort heard in the last year in behalf of the University of Louisville, riiere were also suggestions, however vague, involving the street railway system and Churchill Downs. Motives in every case have been mixed and hazy.

At about ihat date (perhaps earlier this year because of the advanced season) [he common ragweed begins to release pollen Into the air. The running or stuffed-tip nose, itching and watering eyes, an^ the sneezing fits of hay fever victim make for a miserable time. 3ome people are so seriously af- ected that they cannot sleep. They lose weight, become irltable and cxhau.ted and feel of little use to themselves or to anyone else during the four or five weeks of "the season." Manv victims of hav fever liave obtained great relief by taking the injections or "shots" of pollen before the season starts. Tlie purpose of these injections is lo reduce the sensitiveness to the pollen. Some people cannot take large enough doses to do much good. Others, for reasons which are not yet entirely understood, fail to respond very well. Many, however, obtain some relief and a few get over the symptoms entirely. Temporary Relief Once 'he s:ason has started these preventive Injections are not of much help. Many who can get away try to reek areas where there less pollen, but others have stay ivhere Ihey are and grin and bear it. Air conditioned public buildings often bring some relief. Some people wlio can afford it feel better if they stay in a room with an air filter in the window. Several drugs which bring considerable relief are now on the market.

However, I think that was a weak argument, The jack of hearts looks like the natural opening and It was un- tortnnate that East held the ace of diamonds instead of the ace of hearts. let coiTesixmdents attribute such itatements to them personally, but AP Correspondent William B. Moore radioed from Seoul: ScW Itefeut M»v« HiBtei "Some very significant figures in the ... government think the Urn* must come soon when this Infant republic must Invade the Communist-ruled North as a self-defense measure." Moore said moderate Koreans ad- flsed against this. But the talk of beating the North to the punch obviously has increased recently. A few months ago in Tokyo, American Army officers back from Korea told me it existed, but was not very open. Later Moore cabled that the northerners had invaded the southern part of the Ongjin Peninsula, which is intersected by the 38th parallel that divides Korea Into two separate countries. Each is recog- ^ niz*d by its respective sponsor in the cold war arid by some of "each sponsor's allies. This little war at Ongjin has been going on since late May, when a southern expedition by sea drove the northerners out. Tlie northerners kept coming back, however, and did so In force last week. The southern chief of staff revealed that this last show of northern force occurred after his troops had occupied two strong points just over the border In the North. He said these were lost in the fighting, which cost about 200 southern lives. Bloody Civil War Feared The question of who actually invaded whom may not be as important as this question: Whether the situation that makes invasion attractive to both sides can be ended without a bloody civil war, and whether that could be kept from expanding into something bigger. Russia and America both have vital strategic interest In Korea. In any case, the renewal of fighting at Ongjin helped to spotlight the meeting scheduled late this week between Southern President Syngman Rhee and Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek of China, to promote a Pacific union against Communism. American help would be asked. There long seems to have been sentiment in the North to "reunify" Korea (which all Koreans want, one way or another) but to do it by conquering the South. The growth of a rival sentiment in the South has speeded up since the southern army acquired the arms left behind by departing U. S. occupation troops early this summer. Soviet troops reportedly left the North some months earlier, after building and arming a Northern Korean army. C'ouW Stari World War III But there's something else worth noting about the southern army. It contains thousands of young Koreans who bore arms under Japan. Just how many is not known but I am told by some Koreans that there may be as many as 30,000— roughly a third of President Rhee's present land force, which he want* to quadruple. The story Is that there were about 100,000 young Koreans who joined or were drafted into the Japanese Army. After t he war ended, they bore the stigma of collaboration in the great wave of hatred against all who had worked for or with the Japanese. They hud trouble finding jobs. Many became tramps and bandits; some of cours» Joined the Communists. But thousands of them got into the Southern Korean army, where they naturally are Interested in any situation which might improve their lot and that of their fellows who didn't get it.
