Warlike 'Neutral' President Sukarno's resounding threats of war against the Dutch over New Guinea have made that area one of the world's sore spots. So far it is a minor one. But Indonesia apparently intends to keep it inflamed. The Netherlands has complained to the United Nations of several incidents. For example, an Indonesian force, the Dutch charge, has landed on Waigeo. Dutch naval forces were ordered to this island, in the R a d j a A m p a t archipelago off northwestern New Guinea. One of three B-25 bombers, obsolescent American planes, dropped bombs on a small Dutch naval vessel in the harbor of Gag, a small island not far from Waigeo, in a sudden attack without any reason. Such incidents suggest that Indonesia, recognizing that the Dutch cannot police all of New Guinea at once, are constantly trying to land infiltrators who can organize guerilla warfare or stir up native resistance by the Papuans. Indonesian attacks continued during Dutch-Indonesian talks, which lasted only three days. Sukarno has i n t i m a t e d they are not likely to be resumed unless Ihe Netherlands agrees in advance to give West New G u i n e a lo Indonesia. The Dutch are preparing the Papuans for eventual independence many years hence, and Indonesia is un- w i l l i n g lo agree to Papuan self-determination or international control. Indonesia is engaging in these territory-grabbing maneuvers with Washington money, extended as "aid." Shutting down the dollar pipeline might have the effect of cooling of Sukarno. Indonesia is one of the "neutrals" urging the United Stales to go to almost any lengths to avoid war. but she refuses to modify her own outlaw ambitions for the sake of peace. . Deepening Quagmire Proposed revisions of the federal tax code usually have the announced purpose of simplifying the laws. Bui almost invariably the actual effect is to make the tax laws still more complicated. The Kennedy administration's present tax proposals are no exception, particularly with reference to the proposed withholding of interest and dividend income. These provisions of the administration's 240-page tax measure are called an administrative nightmare. If enacted they will enormously complicate the bookkeeping problems of the nation's investment institutions. Almost predictably they will also set an example for state and local taxing jurisdictions which Jevy on income. If 'he federal government can attach interest h c f r v e it's pnid there is no apparent reason why stale and IncM governments cannot do the same. Trend Reversed Mure than 91,000 accidental deaths in the United Slates in 1961 is hardly a record to be proud of, but the figure does represent a victory of sorts for the safety efforts of many individuals and organizations. The accidental death toll last year was a decrease of 1,500 from that of 1900. For the first time in the history of a large life insurance company's statistics on U. S. accidents, the death rate declined to 50 per 100,000 population. Safety campaigns do pay off. Obviously, a safety awareness of a significant segment of the population was responsible for the 1961 drop in accidental .leaths. From t h i s beginning--and the improvement last vear can only be called the first step--a renewed e f f o r t on !hp part of those engaged in safety education should result in greater cause for celebration when the books for 1962 are closed. !nterlandi Editorials *** Features *** Comments people are employed to translate his -posonous preachings."

NATIONAL WHIRLIGIG News Behind the News WASHINGTON - American dip omatic representatives here am abroad have the definite impres sion that Nikila Khrushchev is not the sole architect of Russian olicy or the ail-powerful dictator hat Stalin was. In Iheir opinion he is subject to checks and restraints by the Central Commit- cc of the Communist Party. He has been thwarted on many ucslions within recent months by ic so-called traditionalists, who resent the changes he had proposed. He had advocated a slight modification in several Commun ist principles. Although they af- ected largely the domestic field ley also had their impact upon oreign policy and military expansion. On account of the heavy fall off in farm production, which was ic main topic of discussion al ic recent 22nd Congress, Khrush- hev urged greater conlrol at the ower level to improve both farm incentives and efficiency. He also favored increases in the size o the plots on which peasants couk grow food for themselves rathe than for the state collectives. A pragmatic mon, Khrushchev had seen how private farming had a great advantage over central ized control, especially in Poland There peasants holding only 10.5 per cent of the arable land pro duced 63 per cent of t!ie total farn production. But apparently for idologica ralher than realislic reasons, a solid majority of the Presidium turned down all his plans for agricultural decentralization anc greater reliance on what passes for private enlerprise in Ihe Soviet system. Khrushchev had also advocatec greater allocation for industria production lo consumer goods. In fact, he has frequently boasted lhat Russia would approximate American standards of living with in an unnumbered period of years The Hollywood Scene By Vernon Scoff HOLLYWOOD (UPIi -- Ernes Borgnine has two things in com mon with Prseident John F. Ken nedy-- both were Navy men and now big Ernie has become a PT boat skipper. Borgnine's prospects of reaching, Ihe While House, however, are as slim as its present occupant tak ng up an acting career. The heavyset Oscar winner has thrown caution and movies to the wind to star in a new television series, "Machalc's Seven," in which he plays a hard nose( icutenant commander. He should live so long. When Ernie was a Navy man he attained the rank of petty officer 1st class -- strictly an en- isled man. "Thai's n big jump into the officer class," Uorgnine grinned. "And the pay is real good too. Better than a navy officer gels. 1 also own part of the company." Televiewers had a preview o K'nie's new show last week on ABC-TV's Alcoa Premiere show. It uas called a "Spinoff" in video i.-iloi.s. "The series is Ihe story of a World War 11 PT boat based in the South Pacific." Ihe big guy explained. "I call it a 'Wagon Train' on water. It's not so much a war slory as il is a study of icrsonalitie.s under pressure. "I think Ibis is the first World War 11 series television has tried. Hut it isn't all grim drama. There's plenty of humor, too. It'.* kind of n combination of 'Mr. Roberls.' 'Teahouse of the August Moon' and 'Victory at Sea." Ernie was asked why he has finally decided on a video series "Well, when Ihey offered me this show I look a good look around at the number of pictures being made in Hollywood and at how many good scripts I'd seen in the past two years," he said "Then I thought about how many pictures will be made h the next five years and the fu lure didn't look too bright. "This show has plenty of guts and I spent 10 years as a gunners male in the Navy. It all addec up to a chance lo earn some goot money and to have some fun at the same time." Additionally, Ernie is lired of globe-trotting. He and his wife Katy Jurado, have had only a few weeks together in their Beverly Hills home in the past two years. "Why knock your head against a wall looking for good pictures," he said. "If you want lo work steady in movies you have lo travel all over Ihe world these days. "Now that I'm doing a series I'll have eight months of steady work right here in Hollywood and 'our months off lo make a movie tr relax and enjoy myscl. "Besides, PT boats arc vcrj ashionable these days. They've got good connections, if you know what I mean."

The Presidium, however, again forced him to cut back his consumers' program because it conflicted with the industrial growl so necessary for the continued military buildup and the costly experiments in space. H is also believed lhat the demand for resumption of nuclear lests in violation of the three-year moratorium was pressed by the so - called "traditionalists," who want Moscow to remain as aloof as possible from the West Khrushchev has rarely referred lo or defended the breaking of thai pledge. Thus, the general feeling here is lhat the West, and particularly the United States, could achieve better relations with Moscow, if Khrushchev were the dominan figure in Kremlin councils, am not hauled hither and Ihilher by Ihese conflicting factions. His puzzling shifts of policy, o attitude, apparently result from iiis effort lo avoid a sharp andj irreparable break within the ruling group. The changes do not always reflect any alteration of his own convictions. Washington's assay of the results of recent negotiations at Geneva, Moscow and here give rise to some optimism. Khrushchev obviously does not want war over Berlin. His sporadic pressures in the air channels and ap- aroval of "the wall" are regarded as allempls to appease the more anti-West faction. t He has agreed lo President Kennedy's proposal for limited cooperation in the exploration of space. He is not taking an active and aggressive part in the fighting n Southeast Asia. And at Geneva, Gromyko himself proposed a ban ' on granting nuclear weapons to r nations not possessing them at Ihe J present moment. That was a direct slap at Red China, Moscow's nominal ally i In fact, regardless of whether 1 Khrushchev or the Presidium cril- ' cs dominate Soviel policy loday, I is certain that they must unite s on a single policy toward Red i China.

The Lighter Side In Washington By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPD--Friends iat lomato you picked up, so jfair, unblemished and seemingly in Ihe pink of condition, could be a case of beauty being only skin deep. The poor thing may be suffering from internal injuries. The theory that tomatoes arc highly susceptible to internal bruising has just been resound- though it may be, had what I re ingly confirmed in the research laboratories of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. A report on the study brings o light some of the most fascinating discoveries that I have seen in many a day. First of all, the researchers established various ways lhat tomatoes can be bruised. They found that bruising can occur when tomatoes "are squeezed tightly to- gelher in a box," when there is "rough handling of the boxes," and "from dropping individual tomatoes on hard surfaces." As far as I know, nobody had previously suspected lhat dropping a tomato on a hard surface might cause it harm. The researchers then made Â»mc laboratory tests "to measure Ihe amount of damage at various stages of ripeness when they were dropped distances ranging from f lo 18 inches on a hard surface, and when dropped on a surface covered with a layer of 'oam rubber." This led to the startling rcvcla- ion that "injury to those dropped on hard surfaces was much the more serious." If I interpret that correctly, it means that tomatoes are more ladly bruised when dropped on n lard surface than when dropped in n soft surface. Eurcknl And Hint isn't nil. The researchers also found that -- hold onlo your hats! -- "the ripest loma oes were injured mosl" by the Iropping. Thai may be hard (o believe, nil the report states it as n fact. Kiirllicrmore, it says Hint in- inry from Ihe dropping "was found to be cumulative; that is, when tomatoes were dropped two or more times, the damage was found lo extend to more and more internal parts." That conclusion especially came as a shock to me. I had always believed that the more you dropped a tomato, the better. The tomato research, valuable gard as one serious shortcoming. Apparently, the tests did not establish whether the damage is g r e a t e r when tomatoes are dropped at 6 inches or at 18 inches. I trusl that point will be cleared up in future experiments. Anc then I hope the researchers will do some comparable work on the effect that dropping has on eggs. A l m a n a c By United Press International Today is Friday, April 13, the 102nd day of the year with 263 to follow in 1962. The moon is approaching its full phase . The morning stars are Jupiter and Saturn. The evening star is Venus. On this day in history: In 1846, Ihe Pennsylvania Railroad received its charter. In 18G5, Gen.

In 1934, Harry Hopkins, chief of Ihe Civil Works Adminislralion, announced Ihnl 4,700,000 families in the United Slates were on relief.

TODAY'S BEST FROM EUROPE The Woman's View By GAY PAULEY NEW YORK (UPD-What constitutes the nation's most neg ected age group? Infancy? The troubled teens? Old age? None of these, says a woman vho has appointed herself champion of the "forgollen person in he life cycle of the community"-he middle-aged woman. Ida Oppenheimer, 66, while haired and dynamic, heads up an organization called "Project on Middle Age." "Middle age is hard to define," she said, "because it varies with each individual. I otfen refer to it as the period between empty nest and old rockin' chair." "It runs roughly from the early 40's through the 50's," she said, 'when the children have grown f she has had many interests other than her children, and if she has had professional training. "It's an empty period for the woman who has not." Miss Oppenheimer cited government statistics showing there are 20.6 million women in the Jniled Slales in the 40-59 age bracket, or 22.6 per cent of the otal female population on the J.S. mainland. How many of these are women who "know where they are, bul don'l know where they're going" rliss Oppenheimer cannot esti- male. Bul she is convinced the num- ier is so sizable that government and privale agencies must step in and offer them guidance through what could be lonely, unfruitful years. Yet, she said, few communities provide any sort of coordinated service; 'The need is there," she said. 'A woman can gossip, listen to elevision, and shop only so long-o fill the hours." Once, she said, the middle 'ears weren't such a problem, jecause women married in their 20's instead of in their teens, and children didn'l move away from he family and community the minule Ihey gol out of college. Community and family life doesn't lave the closeness it once had. "Older people are more de- ached from family than ever be- r ore," she said. "I'm convinced hat if we would solve u^e prob- ems of the middle years, we vouldn't have such a large one vith the aged." "Project on Middle Age" is a lyproducl of Ihe work of the rewish Vacation Association, vhich Miss Oppenheimer directed or 30 years before she resigned 10 give her full time to this project. The association called its first non-sectarian conference in 1956. 'here have been others since; the latest this year concerned married women and the job market. "Project" hired an independent research group, the Institute for Motivational Research, Croton-On- Hudson, N.Y., lo determine women's interest in jobs once their children were away from home. Its findings: Three of every four women between 40 and 55 expressed "highly positive" response to middle-aged homemakers seeking outside jobs. Miss Oppenheimer said "project" hoped eventually to help act as a clearing house for information nationally--"lo create a means of communication to make better known to a community its existing facilities." Quotes From The News MOSCOW - Pravda, the official Soviet Communist party newspaper, criticizing President Kennedy's plan to resume nuclear testing in the atmosphere: "The new planned series of U.S.-British nuclear tests will open the door, not to international agreement but to another, still more dangerous round of the tournament in the field of weapons of mass destruction."
