(Inability to Plan Use Of A-Bomb Is Paradox The United States find its European allies have long recognised that the atomic 'bomb is their great defense against Soviet aggression. So it must . come as something of a surprise — perhaps even a shock — to (he nvcraKC ciU i?.en to realize that no concerted plan exists for use of thfc A-bomb in event of Russian attack. ) That docs not mean,.of course, that no plan of any kind exists. The U. S. Strategic Air Command has devised and is still devising tactical and strategical techniques for employment of the homb. Some of SAC's planes art Currently based in Britain, presumably ready to deliver a devastating load on Uussiii'a cities in retaliation for any attack. But neither these no' any other SAC planes are under commnnd of General Ridgway, chief of (lie NATO forces which are generally regarded as the principal defensive reliance of the wtst— ern world. Ridgway could summon the aid of the U. S. bombing force in au emergency. That force is accepted as a vital backstop for the regular NATO units in Hurope. But because it is not integrated into NATO in any fashion, no NATO planning can be done involving the atomic bomb. • * U. S. law governing atomic energy is so strict that Ridgway cannot even discuss with his assistants, British Field Marshal Montgomery and French j General ,hiin, the operational phase of tactical atomic weapons developed by the U. S. . • This is a strange paradox. The 01, ganix.ation set up to defend the free j world is unable to plan for the use of the weapon which is admittedly its greatest prop. It may wtll be true that many things about the making of atomic weapons cannot safely be passed on, even to our allies. Nevertheless, it would seem to be necessary, both in the interests of good military planning and in justice to our allies, to work out some arrangement for A-bomb consultation. If war should come, the great centers of western Europe would be immediate enemy targets. The concern of the. European nations over how the bomb would be used is therefore understandable. We cannot in one breath assure them the bomb is their chief protection, and in the next declare they'1 know anything about how we plan to use it. The question of how much we should properly tell our allies is indeed a delicate one. But it cannot be left unsettled if we are to have intelligent plan- King for the joint defense of the free countries. Here is but one more stiff challenge to the incoming Kisenhowtr administration. Study Sees Immigrants As Source of Strength Sometimes presidential commissions conveniently find just the facts a Chief Executive hopes they will. In that respect they can rtscmble the all-too-familiar type of attorney general who always manages to unearth legal justification for whatever * President wants to do. • Hince President Truman disapproved the JMcCnrrnn Immigration Act ftnd Congress overrode Ills veto, one might suspect that any commission study of the law would produce automatic support for the President's viewpoint. Ills commission on immigration nnd naturalization did indeed report adversely on the purposes and effects of Die McCarrnn law, but for the most part skepticism over the group's fairness and objectivity would seem to be unwarranted. The report was thorough and broadly useful. • Mr. Truman's commission took testimony fcom nbinit BOO organizations and individuals in almost a dozen cities around the country. Included Were many experts. Kdticatfonal, religious, welfare and labor organizations all voiced their views. Generally tlujy were in agreement that the act hurts America both at home and abroad. The commission found them convinced the law's tonb is one of "hostility toward and distrust of all aliens." Obviously, a' sound immigration law cannot be so based. Naturally we need to screen any newcomers with careful regard to U. S. security requirements. We nted also to accommodate their numbers to the capacity of our economy to absorb them. But that is a far cry from assuming that every foreigner who enters the Unifed States is eillier a definite burden on the economy or an enemy agent. Moreover, as the commission correctly observes, there is serious doubt of the wisdom* of solidifying the established immigration quota systi-m. Under that set-up, entry quoins are heavily weighted to favor British and other western Kuropimn immigrants and to hamper admission of eastern Europeans, Asiatics and others. On its face this arrangement is higli- . ly discriminatory, and tht McCarran act would freeze it. Whether the government would want to adopt the commission's proposal for complete abandonment of the "national origins" quotas-system is some-, thing else. Even if further study should show this a wist move, it is probably too drastic a step to win wide support at this time. in summary, the commission appears to have done an intelligent job, recognizing that a steady flow of immigrants into America constitutes an' important source of renewed strength for the country, basically a constructive rather than a destructive element in the nation's*future.

She's not going to get married—she hopes. As a fellow who almost always goes to Lana's wedings, I was curious about whether there will be a Husband No. 4 now that she's shed Husband No. 3, Bob Topping. 'I HOPE NOT!" she screamed with a wince between sessions or a hot Samba with Ricardo Mont a I- tmn for "Latin Lovers." Fernando Lamas was Lana's Latin lover the original casting, but when she cast him out of her life MO also cast him out of her picture. Now that Lamas has taken it en the lam, it's a "\vell-ndjusteo" Lann facing the new year, she says, with the exception of one thing: "I have to gel out of this town for a while.

They haven't seen one another since her return to Hollywood from France, but they've had numerous telephone conversations and Joe told me, "She belongs pictures. It's like asking a duck if he wants to swim. If somebody conies up with a good story— and I hope it wil be me—Deanna will be back on the screen." Joe's next film will be Esther Williams' "Easy to Love" and he's beaming: "She has three leading men and all of them will be over six fet tall.

Every school building should be the community center of the neighborhood. Its gymnasium, nuditarlum, library, cnletcria, lounging rooms, etc., should be used at niyht by adults ami children as well as by children by day. Even a YMCA program might be put on in a school building. Religions services are not out ol the question if the use ol the auditorium was pnld for by the group .so using them — then the .schools would not be sponsoring any particular faith. School grounds should be the neighborhood park nnd playground. Similarly church buildings could be used nil wrek long for secular as well a.s purely religions functions. We would be a richer community if we did not waste so much brick, stone and concrete in buildings which we use only a fraction of the time. — Mnnphis Prc&s-Sclmltftr. By I'KTEK EPSON | NKA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON—<NRA>—All of a sudden, farm politics In Washington has become hotter than a corn- He td In August. Reason for this midwinter heat wave Is Presl- tlent-elect Eisenhower's appointment of his interim, 14 - member farm policy advisory committee. The emphasis has been put on the' "interim" but the r«Uer Ed»on commit tee may become permanent. Politically, the group seems to divide as four Democrats, one Democrat - for-Eisenhower, eight straight Republicans and one independent Republican, Chntrimi William I. Myers of Cornell University. The names on this list have farm bell congressmen and farm organization lenders buzzing*. For the first time In years, the names of the big-three farm organixatloi heads Imvo been left off a farn policy committee. Cons pic uoxisl* not present are 'Allan Kline American Farm Bureau, Hersche I"), Ncw.son of the Grange Jnmes Pntton of Farmers' Union Two other notable omissions Iron the list are Robert K. Goodwin am H.irolit McKlnley of Iowa, wii he Elsenhower campaign In th arm belt, working out of the Chi cago headquarters. Tt was Mr. McKlnley, a polat grower who has tangled frequenll with the Democratic tulmlnlstra lion's Depnriment of Agrlcullur who first .suggested the Idea of were Republican co-chairmen committee to advise on farm po ic.y. The idea was put in the res UlUons adopted nl the, Denver co ence of Turin leaders before the] Iticago GOP convention: The idea was later transplanted i the Republican platform, and it as endorsed personally by Genral Eisenhower In the campaign. o the naming of the committee arries out IHese promises. Benson Approved Appointments The committee was picked with 10 approval of the new Secretary f Agriculture, Ezra Tafl Benson. But how much of a hand Mr. Benon had in naming them is not re- •eated. Chairman Myers and 'resident - elect Elsenhower's Brother, Milton, are generally redited with having put the com- niUee together, according to Re- lublican sources. But the appointment of the group vas not cleared with Sen. George Aiken of Vermont, nor Rep. Cliff lope of Kansas, who will again be Republican chairmen of congressional agriculture committees. Here may be the making of another cloud of trouble no bigger han a man's hand. The congressional agriculture committees have always regarded themselves as the op farm policy makers In the country. To put a group of inde pendent, nonpartisan or even non political private citizens bestd :hem to -shape farm policy is an experiment that may work, or may not. To the congressional agriculluri committees it raises the crmllengi of calling in Secretary Bensoi and saying to him. in effect, "A; right, now tell us your program to see If we like tt." The committee finally selccte by General Eisenhower presents number of characteristics new t the Washington farm political pl< lure. It Is heavy with food proces sors, as distinguished from straigl farmer:;. The farm operators the committee are big-farm men here ts no representation of the nail farmer. Farm Hurcau Group lias Edge The committee has several "pro- tssors" on It but they come ex- lUSively from the land-grant col- eges. This gives the Farm Bu- eau Federation, with Its advocacy land-grant college and exten- Lon-servfce control of farm policy decided advantage. Though the heads of the farm rgnnizatLondt. have been kept of he scommlttee, they are rep- esented. Romeo Short of Ark an Is a vice president of AFB larry B. Caldwell Is'Masier of the Jorth Cotton Producers' Associa- lon. Chris Milius is head of the Farmers' Union in Nebraska, hut he is lumber one opponent of FU Fres- dent Patton. Naming Milius to the committee is taken as a direct slap at Patton. Robert- Coker is vice president of the South-Caro- v Farm Bureau. Not naming Allan Kline to the group is taken as an indication that the Repub- icans intend to control agriculture policy, and not give it to the Farm Bureau Federation. Representing the processors of farm products, John H. Davis of Boston is with National Wool Mar- It was reached by somewhat different bidding in the two rooms. In the first room the English declarer won the first trick with the ace of spades and promptly led a low diamond from hfe hand. When West played low. dummy finessed the seven and East won with the Jack. East, realized that South would not attempt this deep finesse unless he had three diamonds. This meanl that West had started with a don- bleton , diamond, in which case B ruffing trick could be obtained. Easi therefore returned a diamond ai once. Dummy won, .and declarer led i trump to knock out East's king. Eas then led his last diamond, an< West was able to ruff. West natu rally took the ace of hearts at one to defeat the contract. In the other room a Norwegiai player demonstrated a better wa to play the hand. After winning th first trick with the ace of spade: he promptly led his singleton hear This play could cost very little j East had the ace of hearts, but "! would gain a :i:eat deal if Wes had the rcn of hearts. As it happened, West did hav the ace of hearts and put it up f once. Now dummy's king of hear could furnish a diamond discard tana Belle." His name can hardly be read.
