' '"' They "tried" the four—not previously charged with any specific crime—and ordered them "dep'ort- ed" for having violated Chinese territory. All had been downed, of course, during the Korean war, and as prisoners should have been released in 1953 under terms of the Korean armistice. Eleven other fliers er> held as convicted "spies," and it may not be so easy for the Reds to find a face-saving formula for their release. But if they do release them, then the United States might well consider whether these moyes reflect a new deSii-e : on Peiping's part to follow a path toward an easing of tensions in the Far East. iPSON IN WASHINGTON * Russian Double-Talk Act Is Dusted Off for U.N. ; BY PETER EDSON i' NRA Washlnrton Corespondent WASHINGTON— (NBA)— When the record of the United Nations " Disarmament Cornmisaiqn's subcommittee meetings in London last spring is made public, .it will reveal another amazing performance in Soviet double-talk. .The full story has not; yet come out. but certain highlights can be given. This five-power meeting— tJ.S., U.K., France, Canada and. the U.S.S.R.— was held in compliance with a U.N. General Assembly, resolution passed last fall. The Russians voted for this resolution. the assumption was that they would Cooperate on trying to find workable disarmament -plans. But the first proposal put forward by Russian Ambassador Andrei Gromyko fet the February opening would have set back disarmament by terP years. On paper, the Russian proposal called for the destruction of all atomic jwcattKu. This' sounded all right in principle, but the. werteni powirs delegates wanted to know whit would happen, after the A aid H-bombs were destroyed., On close questioning, it developed .that what the Russians were proposing was that the United States destroy its stockpile of bombs and the Russians destroy their stockpile. But after that, both sides would be free to go ahead and produce bombs cs fast as they wanted to ; • • ; IT TOOK 'THREE WEEKS of frantic arguing 'to impress on, Cromyko the/f actlhat this wbujd merely be endfng one atomic arms race and starting another. It .would be no disarmament at all. Then Gromyko "was recalled as Russian delegate on the subcommittee. Ambassador Jacob A. Malik took his place. It was obvious from the start that Malik had no instructions other than to stall the conference. The old Russian proposal for a. one-third cut -in-arrned forces was brought forward again. Western .delegates questioned Malik to know wAat bate theiiroopitrenf^h.s, were to be cut from. They. told what U.S.. British, French and Canadian forces were. Malik's oT^y reply was to accuse the westerners of wanting to spy orTthe3iu||sian« by:flndjinf oiit how many troops- they; had. •His final concession was that after a treaty agreeing to cut forces e-third iwas signed— then and then only would the Russians ^» forward with a statement of what strength they would cut to. If we should decide they do, theh -we might con'MUrJc that favorable conditions exist for negotiations with the Chinese. ', Nevertheless, we would hate to have it plain that we were not agreeing to talk in payment for the release of wrongfully imprisoned American. 1 ?. We coun^i strike bargains which credit the Communists for undoing unjust acts. So leng as that is thoroughly clear, the American government cannot lose by silting down at the council table to test the genuineness of Peiping's gestures toward a more relaxed Far East-* ern situation. As for the immediate achievement of the four fliers' release, America must extend first thanks to the long, patient efforts of U.N. Secretary General Dag Ham- marskjold. .. Ever since the U.N. resolved to act in the fliers' behalf, Ham- fnarskjold has woi'ked tirelessly toward this goal. Krishna Menon, India's U.N. delegate, has publicly assumed full credit for the release. Me has only recently returned [ from a Peiping mission whose aims included freedom for th-j fliers, and he may indeed have played a significant role in the Red move. But this country will not forget the long-range negotiations Of Hammarskjold. In all fairness we must credit him, as the fliers themselves do, with laying the real foundation for this heartening event. F. U ft Q P t A N K MI (, R A N 1 S M O V ( D j.. .

Shayne went on with a twisted smile. "I sort of took the play away from her." "Wait a little minute," said Timothy Rourke wearily. "This is me. Remember? Not the cops. I don't mind covering up for you two nice people, but I'm waiting to hear you say which one bumped the guy."

Written for NEA Service Since cihcieni times the heart has been recognized as essential to life, though why and how have been discovered only comparatively recently. The connection between life and the heart has brought about a whole lot. of superstitions. One ancient Grepk superstition, attributed to Pliny, asserts that the heart of one who died of heart disease could not be burned. Another popular belief mentioned by Pliny, or which there does not appear to, be any foundation, 'is f tfrat animals with a hard and rigid heart are looked upon as stupid and lumpish, while those in whom the heart is small are courageous and those with very large hearts are timid. Inhabitants cf the Orkney and Shetland Islands are supposed to have believed that if any person was emaciated by sickness or other accidental causes, the heart was worn out. They believed that this could be discovered by melting a piece of lead and throwing it into cold water. If the harden- ed lead took the shape of a heart the person would recover. In the Scottish Highlands a widespread belief. was that insanity was caused by a person's heart getting out of place due to a sudden shock. It was also felt that another shock would bring it back to its former position and thus restore the natural balance. Sudden shock was thereforto one of the old remedies for insanity. This is interesting now to recall in the light of the modern development of shock treatment for certain kinds of mental disease. In the case of sudden death of an expectant mother, a belief sprang up in Scotland that the infant put up its hand and gripped the mother's heart. Hic- cough was at one time said to be caused by nerves in the heart in some people and that at every hiccough a drop of blood left the! heart. ' One man has remarked that since the heart is regarded as the seat of life, soul, wisdom and similar virtues by many primitive peoples, savages devour the hearts of their enemies so that these qualities may pass into them. A great many popular remedies have been the treatment of various kinds of heart disease. Frequently these included the hearts of animals, or heart- shaped inanimate objects. There is a story about a man who was told by a wise woman that his cattle, suffering from pestilence, could be cured only if he got the heart of a man who did not know his parents, dipped it in a bucket of water and sprinkled the cattle with the water! Shortly after a peddler came by. was.. murdered, his heart taken and the cattle cured. Unfortunately, the'tale goes, the disease was transferred to the murderer's family. Of course, all of these tales are merely superstitions and folklore. Mexia Daily News Published by the New* PubliahhiK Co., I Inc., Mexiu. 'IVxux. m.AKK SMITH, I president; E. C.
