Senate Judgeship Decision Is Proper Rebuke to Truman The Senate Judiciary Committee fi- .. nally got around to giving President Truman the bad news. It killed his two nomination! for federal judgeshipn in Illinois, on the grounds the choices were per- sorRlly obnoxious to. Senator Douglas of that state. Th« committee hi\d allowed this thing to hang fire for several weeks in ^op« Mr. Truman and Douglas wouIVl settle their quarrel. Since neither would yield, the Senate group acted, as expected, In support of its colleague. The President could hardly have anticipated x different outcome. Senate custom gives senators the predominant voice in the selection of federal judges within their own territory. It was a foolhardy move for him to permit personal pique at Douglas to tliclate this challenge to established tradition. Mr. Truman was unwise, too, in thus displaying publicly hi» disapproval of Douglas. For many elements of his legislative program, both domestic nnd foreign, he has no more loyal supporter than the Illinois senator. To cast away Douglas' backing and good will because the senator insisted on acting independently upon occasion, was a profligate wnsle of the assistance the President so badly , needs in Congress. Moreover, it amounted to saying thai nothing but party-hack loyally was of any use to (he White House. This hardly seems a proper encouragement to statesmanlike thinking on Capitol Hill. Douglas w<m a wetl-descrved victory in this encounter. Senate Can Erase House Blunder Last year Congress created the National Science Foundation to give basic guidance and direction to the nation's scientific research. It authorized $15,000,000 for a project heralded by leading scientists throughout the country as highly important. In a day when supremacy in science is virtually synonymous wth supremacy in military prowess, their judgment seemed eminently sound. But ISim is another year. Foundation officials came in this time with a request for 5M,000,000 more. And in the name of "economy," the House proceeded to slash this by 08 per cent, voting an almost microscopic $300,000. It should he evident to all that this is not reasonable economy. H is destruction. Either the foundation is worth supporting or it is not. It cannot achive its aims on $300,000 a year. If that is all Morals Now Measured By Quantity Frank Prince, a recently ousted junior official of the RFC, told a Senate committee the other day that he had accepted certain gifts from the president of the American l-ithofold Corp., which got $5(55,000 in loans from the RFC. Among the bounty, said Prince, was a ".small ham." He testified that he saw nothing wrong in accepting such a present, provided that the ham weighed no more than 12 poynds. With this statement, Prince has thrown a whole new light upon our moral dilemma. He has introduced the quantitative, as opposed to the qualitative, mea~ sure of moral behavior. Morality, he is saying, is something you can gauge by the pound. Think how our lives would be simplified if we could just adopt Prince's thinking on a broad scale. All we need, apparently, is a system of moral weights and measures. Given that, we can classify behavior as moral or immoral as easily as sorters grade oranges in a packing plant. Gone will be the excruciating, hair-splitting judgments of right, mid wrong according to qualitative standards. Did the accused do wrong or not? Get out the scales or the calipers, mister, and we'll soon enough tell you. Views of "Others Do American People Approve This Pension? It is doubtful that one former serviceman In every 10,000 could list the many benefits which the United States has provided for veterans. No • other nation in the history of the world has ever npproacheri Ihe generosity which the United States has shown lor its former military men. For the mast part, the American taxpayers have gladly provided the bill 10115 of dollars necessary for housing, hosj)italt7.ntlon, pensions, education and the many other JaoneflLs (or veteran 1 *. The American peopln have-shown their deep appreciation to former servicemen not only with words but also with action—and financial action In particular. The people of this nation no doubt will continue to lend their support to any measure which provides Just aid to former servicemen, However, unreasonable federal expenditures for veterans must stop somewhere. Congressmen who are sensitive to the voting power of veterans' groups are entirely too eaeer to clip deeply Into the treasury and hand out millions of dollars to veterans when there is no fair reason for doing so. The example of this can he found in the congressional action which provides special pensions for veterans disabled in civil Ufe. If the veteran suffers disability which Is connected with military tUitiep, he deserves a special pension, and the people will demand that he receive it But if, for example, he Is disabled in an"automobile accident 10 years after he has left the military service, but. what process of reasoning should the taxpayers be required to foot the bill for his pension? Yet, that is what the vote-conscious Congress has now provided for by law. The bill which was enacted Tuesday provides pensions of $120 a month for veterans of the Spanish-American War. World Wars I and II and the Korean ca.mpa.ipn whose disabilities not connected with their service are such I hat they requite recular aid and attendance of another person. President Truman showed courage In vetoing the bill with the blunt charge that it discriminates between veterans and non-veterans. This ac- tinn is not likely to increase his popularity among ?r>me \eteran groups, but millions of fair-minded former $rrvirenien and other Americans will be era(Fful for his efforts to stop Concresp' Loose jpcndint of federal money to win veterans' voles. —ATLANTA JOURNAL SO THEY SAY Bridge of Sighs once over lightly- By A A.

One of the serious complications which can be brought fibont by cough is a condition known as bronchiectasis about which W. I. K. and others have inquired. This distressing condition can be brought about by chronic sinus Infection, bronchitis, or almost any other long-lasting disease of the breathing system which produces a chronic cough. BronchiecUisi.i interferes with health and the ability to work, and in Its most serious form can even cause death. It. Is therefore extremely desirable to prevent it if at all possible.

If he Once bronchieetasi.s has developed, the first step in treatment Is to find out if the condition which produced the bronchiectasis is still active and to use whatever means one can to attack the underlying anse. The medical treatment of hron- chiectasis was formerly not very successful. Lately, however. * there have been some good results reported fronm penicillin — usually given by fhe inhaling method. SUKGRRY IS EFFECTIVE The other method of treatment which is satisfactory for many of those with bronchicctasi.s, even when the condition is advanced, is surgery. The part of the lung affected with brotichiectasis cnn be removed by surgery pretty successfully and this has undoubted!} saved a good many lives. For those who are unfortunate enough to have developed an advanced type of brnnchiectasi.s, surgery i.s probably lhe*only good hipe agent that he is laboring for "one tenth" of what he would net for straining his tonsils on behalf of an ad client.
