' * * * A religion without its mysteries Is a temple without a God.—Robert Hall, BARBS Money you have to pay always seems like * Jot more than the money you borrowed. « » » It's sort of a waste of time for a bridegroom to get all dressed up for his wedding. Who looks at him? • • » Correct answers that kids give to school problems are just a lot of passing remark*. Power of Positive Meeting There is a. difference, we must hope, between being negative and being realistic. And the distinction must be kept constantly in mind as w« prepare for the foreign ministers' meeting at Geneva next month. We must go there with the positive intent of putting forward sound golu- tions for Berlin and Germany, and. of making their worth evident to * world eager for peace and sanity. There has been more than enough of our assuming we can only lose propaganda battles to the Soviet Union. And the business of winning them begins with believing you can win. Yet going to Geneva, and probably on to the summit, with a positive outlook does not mean going with fantastically unreal hopes of what may be accomplished. In this realm, the evidence now seems overwhelming that there will be no agreement between Russia and the West on the reunification of Germany. This is and, must continue to be not a German but a prime Western goal. Nevertheless, the prospect of achieving it either this year or in the immediate foreseeable future is virtually zero. If Soviet Premier Khrushchev has made one thing powerfully plain, it is that he wants no part of German unity in any shape or form which would bring the end of the Communist East German puppet state. Since an East Germany left either to itself or absorbed into an all-German nation would surely give the Communists short shrift, the Kremlin obviously cannot and will not counten. ance serious unity moves. The most that we may legitimately hop* for, it would seem, is som« kind of stabilizing of the existing East- West balance in both Berlin and the whole of Germany. This is not a pleasant outlook, for it could represent an indefinite freezing of artificial, unwholesome and unwieldy relationships in the core of Europe, But such stability could lessen the chance of war between East and Weat. And to the degree that it may be attained by clarifying and reinforcing our rights in Berlin and its corridor, we may be better off than we are in the teetery condition of today. 0 Good one) Faithfql...? The employment of enlisted men in the U. S. armed forces as servants to officers is specifically prohibited by military regulations.' That's what Pentagon brass told the House Appropria- j tions Committee investigating charges by Rep. Frank Kowalski (D-Conn.) There, it was in black and white: It is prohibited by regulations; therefore, it cannot exist, gentlemen. The case would have been closed but for Rep. Daniel J. Flood. The Pennsylvania Democrat threw a monkey wrench into works by asking for a few facts. If there are no servants in uniform, who are all those GIs assigned to generals? Oh, them? Why, they're just aides, chauffeurs and stewards. How many? Oh, around 3,000 all told — in Washington, that is. But they're aides, chauffeurs and stewards. Not servants. Oh, it's all clear now. Just a sema- antic misunderstanding. Thank you, generai. VIEWS OF OTHERS Forsooth, Booth! It is Spring again and this is made manifest not so much by flocks of shouting birds harassing the Winter-tendered ears of civilized men as it is by an unexpected new fad amongst the elder urchiiuy. The college boys are at it again in a typical way, teams of them at first one institution or another crowding into phone booths to try to set records. The burning question is not Berlin, NATO or whether ,Ted Williams can get that kink out of his shoulder. The true question of. the hour is, actually, how many schoolboys can get into a phone booth? We sit back, we smile—boys will be boys when the zephyrs Zeph. But this all seems pretty tame stuff to us. Back in the old days college men proved they were college men by such noble undertakings as swellowing live goldfish. There, now, was a challenge what was. Today things have deteriorated to a melange of phone booth human juxtaposition and an occasional dormitory panty-raid. Where ara the men of yesteryear?—Birmingham (Ala.) News.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22,1959 "We Turn Left—Or Is It Right? .'.''/ Peter f (/son's Washington Column — Fidel Castro Is Still A Big Question Mark To America By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEA) - In he weeks immediately preceding jearded Cuban Premier Fidel Castro's arrival in Washington, he tas quieted down considerably. Beating "Yanqui ImperJalistos" over the head is the expected, standard behavior for Latino poli- icians. But Dr. Castro has stopped beating defiance of the Jnited States, temporarily at east. He has had several sessions with U.S. Ambassador to Havana Philip W. Bonsai. He has lUbmitted no programs, made no ormal demands. He has said publicly he wants U.S. credits and an upward re- 'ision of Cuba's export sugar quotas. Though he is not here on a visit of state, he will have a chance to discuss such things in unofficial conferences. The catch is that Castro is still ooked upon with considerable mis- iivings. He has yet to demon- trate clearly that he is now a responsible head of government. His apologists say that his principal trouble is that he is young —only 32. He is impulsive—not a careful thinker. This may have made him a daring revolutionist. But it does not make him a statesman with whom the United States can do business. He does not make -speeches :rom carefully prepared texts. He says whatever comes off the top of his head. Often he has had to admit later that what he said was wrong, and try to suck it back. There was general relief throughout the Americas when the Castro revolution succeeded and the Batista dictatorship was brought to an end. Restoration of civil liberties and promised end of corruption that has plagued Cuba for decades looked good. The picture was immediately changed by the brutality of the Castro trials and execution'* of Batista officials. The freedoms given Communist agitators to ply their trade and move into positions of power in the government, the army, labor unions, press and the schools is now alarming even to Cubans. Communist agents who were active in Guatemala during the Arbenz regime have been identified in Cuba in numbers in recent weeks, operating unmolested. Dr. Castro denies that he himself is a Communist. So does his brother Raul, now head of the army. But both of them have consistently avoided opportunities to show that they are anti-Communist. And they have fired anti- Communists. When Castro lirst began to talk about distribution of land to the poor "Campesinos," it was only the idle acres that were to be confiscated. Since then he has made several pointed references to United Fruit and other American land holdings in Cuba. For the next few months, Cuba will be able to get by financially. The sugar crop is being taken off in orderly fashion. That keeps a flow of dollars and payrolls into the island. But when the crop is over, the going will be tough. The Cuban Treasury is practically empty. Best estimates now are that the Batista crowd stole about 450 of the 300 million dollars on hand seven years ago. In spite of this, Dr. Castro has promised wage increases to everybody. His earlier decrees, decreasing rents, have stopped practically all business construction. Unemployment is increasing, and Castro faces trouble on that. He is an equally uncertain factor in the Caribbean. At one time he threatened withdrawal from Pan-American Union unless it threw out all dictators He has declared that exiles from dictator-ridden countries could base their revolutionary movements in Cuba. In this connection it must be recalled that Castro at age 20 got his own start as a revolutionist by taking part in a 1947 invasion ol The Dominican Republic to overthrow General Trujillo. That revolt ended in failure, and it is believed that any similar adventure today would meet-the same fate. But a rebel landing in Hait might be different. It is for all of these reasons that Premier Castro's speeches in Washington are watched with in terest, to see which way the man is veering, and to size him up firsthand.

JORDAN, M.D, Written lot NEA Serriee During pregnancy, the diet must, not only keep the mother in good health but must supply the unborn infant. The unborn infant is growing at a rate of speed never again attained and needs large quantities of body-building substances. If those are not supplied in the mother's diet, the infant will take them from the mother's tissues without any thought of HER health. The rules governing diet for the pregnant woman arc simple but important. The food must supply enough of the basic needs to keep the mother in good health and to enable the unborn child to grow adequately. The usual foodstuffs, which are starches, fats and proteins, are usually included. But the pregnant woman must avoid eating too much or gaining much weight. Too much added poundage is hazardous for both mother and child. Many specialists insist that their pregnant patients limit weight gain to 20 pounds or less. Remem- 'ber that the average infant weighs only about seven or eight pounds. Anything more is the 'mother's. In addition to the proper quantity of food, there may be special needs for the mother and child. Bones and teeth are produced largely from calcium. Calcium, therefore, with or with- out vitamin D, which aids the use of that substance, may need to be added to the diet. If there is not enough calcium in the diet or if it is poorly absorbed, the infant may take calcium from the mother with resultant trouble with teeth or bones at a later date. In certain areas of the continent there is a lack of iodine in the food. This is particularly true of the Great Lakes region. This substance is necessary for human growth and sometimes should be added in small quantities to the diet of the mother. In many cases enough iodine is supplied by the ordinary use of iodized salt. Taking excess iodine without direct advice is not recom mended. Constipation is common in pregnancy, especially near the end. This is primarily mechanical in nature, but may be eased by the addition (o the diet of fniits, vegetables or other laxative substances. Too many laxative foods, however, can well be undesirable A radical change in this direction is inadvisable except under the ad- rice of a physician as it could bring on too early labor.

Anyone can have a hobby, you know, ,and most people do. There are also people who make a hobby, of having hobbies and Bill Leyden is one of them., He's a regular lobby lobby. His home in the Hollywood hills is so filled with hob- Dies there's hardly room for Bill and his wife. ' l ", Well, anyway, there's room for only one car now in his three-car garage, the handsome MC of' NBC's "It Could Be You" was telling me. The space is filled with three ft his hobbles — mosaic work, photography and phonograph records.' . Bill's other hobbies are hunting with rifle and bow and arrow,' sports and racing cars — he's a ' registered professional driver — .• water skiing and boating, furniture building, art and archeology. • He has a college degree in the latter. Could all these hobbies be an • antidote for retaining his sanity;-., as a daily TV show host, now in • his fourth year? "I think you're half right," Bill.;^ , grinned. "But I've always been a hobby nut. Why, I even had to.-, give up a couple of hobbies." Like those tropical fish, h».!! winces. : As Chicago's top radio disc jockey, before TV, he went on a " fish kick, he said, "Until all four walls of my apartment were lined ~. with fish tanks. When I had to'' start raising fish as food for my. other fish I figured I'd gone too " far and gave it up." Skin diving was another hobby.". Bill had to give up. • "A 70-foot dive left him with •'" ' busted ear drum and a media said, "That's it." — Bill explains his passion for hob- ' hies with the words, "I guess I was born with a curiosity compulsion about people and things." Maybe that's what makes * good MC, which Bill is — curiosity. : he queen and returned a diamond whereupon. West ran off our diamond tricks. East had to make two discards md many players would have >een tempted to signal spade trength by discarding the ten but east realized that his fourth pade was a probable trick so he conveyed the same message by simply discarding the deuce and hen the nine of clubs. It was no problem for West to ead the four of spades which Sast won with the ace. He led a spade back which West won with he king. West then cashed his ting of hearts and gave his partner two more spade tricks for an 1100 point profit.
