Mere Memorial Tribute For Heroes Not Enough Memorial Day belongs first to the dead of the American Civil War. Yet it has come to represent R day of remembrance for the fallen soldiers of al! our battles. On this day we decorate their graves. This simple personal act is our most direct expression of feeling for lost sons, husbands, brothers and fathers. It is one •wo will repeat on other days. But we know in our hearts we must dedicate ourselves to these men in decp- • er -ways. We must lend what help \ve can to the earnest men in and out of government who are striving to erect a durable edifice of peace, one that will not come crashing down to take more young men to their deaths in another war. We must employ our full energies, our brains and our moral strength to make democracy a rich, rewarding way of living for ourselves and our fellows. We must make our liberties meaningful for all. These are the freedoms our comrades died to preserve. We must work, too, to show that the democratic way affords us the best chance to develope wisely our human and material resources. We must demonstrate that freedom truly gives release to our highest creative imagination. In sum, we must labor for the up• lifting of all in our society to a plane of individual dignity and personal fulfillment. We must make of our nation an unwavering guardian of this promise for the individual. These duties well performed are the greatest wreaths we can lay on the graves of our fallen heroes. ad* were of course hii biggest test. When Kussian fighter planes buzzed our airlift transports, Clay brushed them aside like pesky mosquitoes. When Soviet soldiers inched forward into American sectors of the divided city, the general ordered G. 1. diesis to thrust forward jusl enough, but no more than needed, to retake the lost territory. The lifting of the blockade Is a victory for the West, and General Clay is the symbol of that triumph. But he represents more. He played an important role in spurring Western Germany's economic recovery and its recent creation of a new democratic; Constitution. No one expects an occupation general to \vip a popularity contest among the people of an occupied country. To many Germans'. Clny undoubtedly personified the victorious enemy. But to a surprising number he appeared to stand for some sort of vaguely-defined new hope. Thus it is no great shock to learn Hie Germans are naming the street where he lived "General Lucius D. Clay Strasse." Trained correspondents say the French regarded Clay ;is too imperious, as a man who didn't understand their history and their undying fears of a revived Germany. The general firmly believes an economically strong Germany drawn into the western web of nations is vital to future peace. He docs not condone her past errors. But he is afraid that if we do not pull her into our orbit, the Russians will attract Germany eastward. We can only guess what the Russians think of Clay, but it must be plenty. They provoked him endlessly, but they never stirred him to rash action. He presented them with an unyielding front, a stern resolve not to abandon Berlin and not to be goaded into acts of war. At lust, it was the Russians who yielded—lo us and General Clay. That yielding was the signal for the weary general to seek his rest. He's home now, and all lie wants is a bit of catfishing in his native Georgia. We Americans can say gratefully: "Thanks for everything, general. And good fishing!"

Prince Aly Khan, succeeds his father, the Aga Khan, as head of the great Ismailiah sect ol Mohamme- tiatLs. The Asa Khan's religious title is iman, which is somewhat similar to that o' Caliph.

There is no other position comparable lo this. The Asa Khan also has the litle Indian muharajuhs. This title also is accorded his sons.

But ;iving this place the John Gunther General Clay Rates Thanks and'Wei I Done' A tired little man with a soft voice stood before President Truman the other day to receive a decoration for services "of supreme value to his country , and humanity." He was Gen. Lucius D. Clay, retiring American military governor of Germany. He had come home after long war duty and four years with the occupation forces, the last two as commander. General Clay fully merits the President's tribute, the high praise he won from Secretary of Defense Johnson and the ovation Congress gave him. He rates a ringing "well dune" from all of us. For this frail man with the piercing eyes and iron will has been the key figure in Berlin, the hottest spot in our cold •war with Russia. It has not been a relaxing assignment The general has had to worry about the Russians, the Germans, the French, the British, his own Army superiors and the American civilian au- thoritits. With or without guidance from home, he has had to steer his way through crisis after crisis. TW t*n»e month* of th« Berlin bloclt- Spencer Murphey heard an interesting story from a surgeon the other day. It was about A female patient who suffered melancholia. She was unhappy. She cried In her soup; she cried into her inkwell; she even wept In her sleep. She had an operation. A specialist ran a long, intricately-made instrument up her left nostril and did a bit of astute clipping about the frontal portion of her brain. Now the patient Is as happy as all get-out. She sings in the morning, she guffnws at lunch, she smirks through dinner, and she grins unconsciously through the night. The operation was an immense success. A terribly unhappy creature was transformed into an immensely happy creature. But that Is not quite all there is to the story. The rest of it U that the woman was mentally ill in the beginning, and that she is still mentally 111. She always will be mentally ill. In taking the only way known to science to save the patient from grieving herself into an untimely grave, science so altered the physical structure of her mind that there is no remaining hope that she may ever have a normal mentality. Maybe that is good, maybe it Is bad; we would not Icnow. These are trying days for normal mentality. Lonesome days, too, we should think. And lots of people need the same operation which made (he lady in the story happy. It would not make them any saner individually; but in hailing their voicerous unhapplncss. In muting the obnoxiousncss of their laments. In eliminating the ntre portents of their predictions, and in diluting the bitter bile ot their complaints, they might lessen the incidence of slomach ulcers in the rest of us. The evcrything's-wrong boys, the God-howl-suffer girls, and the Ihcrc-ain't no-hope neuters arc ganging up on us. They didn't want Dcwey, they* don't like Truman; they curse bad roads, but they don t want to pay for new ones; they scream for civic improvements, but they damn taxes; they arc afraid of Russia and scared ot Washington; they proclaim a distaste tor alcoho! but they fight against control; they shudder at unemployment and reluse to employ adequate help; they denounce government aid and plead for its assistance. They arc not happy about anything. Maybe a knife up the nose Is the only remedy. But there are not enough knives, there arc not enough surgeons. Christainity could do the trick without a kmte. But Christianity Is strong, strong medicine. People arc afraid to try It. It is incompatible with so many things that people like to hold onto things like pride, and prejudice, and fear, and the passionate devotion to dollars. So we are back again to the knife up the n«e.

ANSWER: There are several possible causes tor an enlarged spleen. The danger depends on the cause. charitable purposes among his people. Many thing that Atra Khan In weighed in a balance against gold or diamonds every year. That's a fiction, though a pleasing one. His highness was weighed against gold—and he tips the scales at an eighth of a ton- on his golden Jubilee as Iman. He has twice weighed against diamonds on his diamond jubilee. However, out of the great sums thus acquired he established a charitable foundation for his followers. Because the AOA Khan Isn't tied to a principality, he Is free to live where he lives. Much of his lime he spends on the French Riviera and in England, and he maintains a racing stable of famous horses. Naturally Prince Aly has similar privileges of living where he wishes, and he presumably sill be able to continue that practice after he takes his father's place as Iman. I.ikc.s Western World Prince Aly apparently takes aft44M his father in liking the WestenJ Is j world, since he has been spending much of his time In Europe and America.
