The idea ie accepted already. All that remains, they say, is to give it fuller opportunity to prov« its worth. Sometimes interesting notions for improvement come from the recipients themselves. Recently Ambassador B. K. Nehru, India's commissioner for economic affairs in Washington, wisely suggested that the foreign aid program needs to be tuned much more sharply than now .to the capacity of particular countries to use funds. There is no, automatic good/sense, for instance, in a "fair geographic distribution" of our funds if that bears little relation to the specific needs of the aid countries and to the well-considered timing of their own development programs. Nehru thinks massive capital aid is justified for those nations like India which may require borrowed capital for a relatively short period to put their economies on a self-generating basis and get them off the aid rolls. Then, indeed, there could be an end to the aid so many congressmen feel has no end. Nehru's ideas make a useful contribution as the big debate nears. New Look at Foreign Aid Soon the Congress will be launching into its annual acrimonious debate on foreign aid. As always in recent years, the aid bill is "in trouble." There are those lawmakers who s«e the whole thing as pointless and endless. There are some who recognize while voting heavily for appropriations f o r e i g n assistance as a convenient place to adopt the economy poature, that will look well in the home bailiwick. Others believed in the program for long years but slowly became disenchanted and now fe«l it must be held tight en: cut off. Still others favor scuttling foreign aid because waste and confusion often accompany it. This last, of course, i« a strange argument. Using the same logic, we should do away entirely with defense because colossal waste sometimes shows itself in armament programs. There was such a disclosure of defense waste not long ago. With all this in the balance against it, foreign aid still has strong and vocal advocates. Some of these recognize validity in many of the criticisms. Yet they still insist that the program is vitally necessary, and that what we need to do is recast it in new and more sensible terms and battle as always to eliminate waste. Quite a few congressional proponents favor much heavier stress on deve- Dial'!_' for Larceny Another "noble experiment" has gone down the drain. If you have to make an emergency call from a public phone booth in Germany, you're going to have to continue digging up the small change out of your pocket or forego the call. Postal authorities in Frankfurt and Hamburg started placing small boxes of "emergency coins" in booths for people caught without the necessary change. In the first day of action, alas, the money disappeared. No emergency ealls were made. Human beings still have a long way to go. A long way. VIEWS OF OTHERS When It Hits Home The numerous medical research and w e ] f a r », organizations have done a pretty good job in combining their formerly sporadic individual fund drives into one big one. Still it does seem at times that we are constantly being asked to dip into our pockets to contribute to some organization or another. Though we may grumble a bit, few of us really begrudge our contributions. We know vaguely that many new strides in medicine, for example, are greatly dependent upon the individual's pocketbook for help. But it is only when a scourge like cancer or heart disease or multiple sclerosis strikes someone close to us that we actually realize the urgency of these drives. Or else, when a public figure is disabled in the midst of work involving our lives and that of our children indeed, the future course of the entire world. When this happens, we ordinary citizens could do no better than resolve to lend new support, both financial and moral, to the dedicated teams of medical researchers.

Not many pee- By PETEE EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NBA) — Farmers are now beginning to receive spell-binding attention from 1960 presidentail candidates. The Democratic candidates, that is. For the Republicans, Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson still plows away for Congressional authority to lower price supports. He wants to put production instead of raising bigger surpluses to put in storage bins, which now costs the government nearly a billion dollars a year. Secretary Benson is also pected to present a new plan to Congress this month, calling for an increase in the soil bank to take more land out of production. Vice President Nixon, leading GOP presidential possibility, hasn't spelled out his farm program for the future, as yet. But in the past he has supported Benson's plans, which are President Eisenhower's plans, too. Democratic hopefuls, however, are planting campaign promises wherever they thuik political seed will sprout. Some of .them seem, as sterile as President Eisenhower's 1952 campaign promises to give farmers "100 per cent of parity in the market, place." Senator Stuart Symington was out in Topeka the other day to speak at the annual Kansas Dem cratic Club dinner. He said ttv Democratic Congress was now workin gno a bill to replace the bankrupt Benson program. This new bill was to hav« these four elements: 1. Give the farmer * fair price. This is like being for home and mother. 2. Give farmers the tools to compete with closely organized segments of the economy. (What do you suppose thai means?) 3. Bring farm production in line with realistic needs. (How do you do that without cutting price supports, reducing marketing quotas and acreage allotments?) 4. Face up to the gigantic iii- "entory problem. (AH right. Only ; would be helpful if some statesman would say specifically how e proposed to prevent them.) Candidate John F. Kennedy was up in Wisconsin selling his cam >aign snake oil on the same day Symington was in Kansas. The landsome young Massachusetts senator had five points in what he called his "sound, long rangi r arm program." But he talkec pretty much in big, round empty circles, too. 1. Treat farm abundance as a blessing, not as a curs*. (Jus how do you do that?) 2. Set up any future farm pro gram to be run by farmer com miltees at the local level. (Mos are now.) 3. Assure farmers a fair shar of the national income. (It cost taxpayers about five million do lars a year to do that novy. bi farmers say it isn't enough.) 4. Encourage the growth of co- >eratives. (This is specific, but ow will that reduce surpluses?) 5. Preserve the family farm. Tu's gets you back to the home nd mother political routine.) Senator Hubert Humphrey of linnesota has been meeting with arm organization representatives « shape up his program. It isn't omplete yet, but he has put in ne bill dealing with the surplus roblem. Senator Kennedy and thers are co-sponsors. They call a "Food for Peace Act." It would create a "Peace Food dministration" in the White House. Public Law 480, under vhich surpluses are now sold or iven away at homft and abroad, vould be extended for five years with annual appropriations of two itllion dollars a year instead of a mere billion and a half. Humphrey and other co-sponsors :re also introducing separate bills o handle dairy surpluses on a self-help basis and to revamp conservation reserve and farm committee systems. Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson of Texas, in his 12-point program for the new Congress, presented last December, included, "a new farm program" but he has not been more specific than that. A Senate omnibus farm bill is now in preparation. But it won't be ready till May. And passage will probably be delayed, till 1960. when more political hay can be made of it. That's how the farm problem is not being solved. around. Jim comes home from work and everyone jumps fo attention." Garner flashing that big smile: "When I'm not here," he kids, "the whole place falls apart." He's even a whiz in the kitchen, he'd like to say. "Grilled cheese sandwiches and grilled chili sandwiches," he said. He slices brick chili and then dips it in pancake batter. An old Okla- ple had—then. "Sayonara," was still being written and there was no Sunday night "Maverick" on TV. Jim had' just played • couple of small roles in unimportant movies at Warner Bros. Her Parents and his parents olv jected. "How can you marry someone you have known for. only two weeks?" both were asked. : Today Lois explains, "I fell fli love with Jim because I knew h* was in lova with me." And th* James Garner who fell in love so suddenly says, "You can know some people for yean and then homa trick he learned down on the farm. East will cash one diamond and wait for his king of spades to set the contract. The real problem in the hand is to get to six hearts rather than six of a black suit and Meyer Schleifer of Los Angeles, one of our really great players, solved it in typical fashion. He simply jumped to six hearts at his third turn to bid. His reasoning was that his partner had opened one heart, refaid the suit and then shown a willingness to play spades. Obviously, South held a heart suit that Meyer's queen-small would solidify and since Meyer held a singleton diamond the hand should play best in his partner's suit. Also Meyer never bothered about seven. South might have two aces but if so he would not also hold the king of hearts and enough black suit strength to justify a grand slam contract. suddenly, realize you don't know them at all.". Then he laugh*, "I was lucky. Lois didnt know about my temper." But Lois doesn't have to worry. She knows that Jim confines bis temper to two places — the geU course and when he keeps blowing lines on a movie sound stage.

CHAMELEONS DIFFER The true African chameleon is quite distinct from the native American variety. It has the interesting ability to s w i v a 1 its eyes in two directions with a tort of turret »ffect. Diverticulitis is becoming increasingly important. One reason is because it is a disorder seen in the latter half of life, and there is a constant increase in the proportion of older persons in the population. A divert!culum, from which this gets its name, is a pocket or pouch attached to a large cavity or tube. For purposes of this discussion diverticula (plural) are considered to be most frequent in the lower part of the bowel. When such pouches are found and are not inflamed, the condition is called diverticulosis. If inflammation is present, the name applied is diverticulilis. In a fine discussion of this subject published last year, it was reported that diverticulosis increased steadily with age in a series of patients on whom barium enemas were performed at the Massachusetts General Hos pital in Boston. Two-thirds of those in the advanced age group were found to have divcrliculosis, and nearly half had some evidence of diverliciilitis. Diverticulosis may be present and cause no symptoms whatever. Sometimes diverticutosis is Undoubtedly many of those who have diverticulosis never develop serious signs or symptoms. However, in genera], it is di verticulitis which may come on suddenly with acute pain, ten derness, fever and other symp- oms, which is the serious mat er. Sometimes the complication! Tom divorticulitis can cause a ot of trouble, particularly if i makes a hole through the intesti nal wall, allowing the bowel con tents to spil ovit into the abdomi nal cavity. Complications such as perito nit is, abscess formation or ob struction of the intestinal trac are thus possibilities. In sue cases immediate operation i. called for. Usually diverticulitis can be managed reasonably successful! by rest, diet and various drugs Surgery is indicated for thos who develop serious complica tions. In the Boston report referred to it was stated that about 70 out o 100 patients with diverticuliU will improve on medical trea ment alone. Persistent symptoms the writer said, will indicate su gery in 10 oul of 100, and 20 ov associated with distress in the of 100 will have complications r abdominal region, and perhaps. quiring an operation, swelling and other mild symptom*. | Read Courier New* Clisiifiedi Food and Drink Answer to Previous Puzzfe ACROSS 36 Malt beverage 37 Invade • JACOBY ON BRIDGE By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NBA Service lidding Harder Than Ploying There is nothing to the play of oday's hand at six hearts.
