A 'more active recognition of I he attitude which Dr. Maim describes will not solve all the problems of Ocnriiny. But it might serve to help set a firm, consistent American policy and thus simplify the task that is still lo be done. A l^ew Twist to Oliver Twst VIEWS OF OTHERS Asia and the World Dr. Mann's Diagnosis While the war was on there was ;i good deal of talk about Hie tremendous task of de-educating and re-educating the Germans. One hears little o! siu-h talk 'today. This i.s not because tlic task is finished. On the contrary, it is bigger than ever; after two years, it i.s scarcely begun. There are several reasons why the subject has' dropped out of gewiral conversation. Our authorities in Germany have been in much the same fix as the postwar British government. Crisis after crisis lias had to be dealt with, thus delaying a real start on a long-range plan.' Our military government authorities have hnd to cope with the K'l'ini and unforeseen struggle withi Russia over the political shape of po'iiwiiv Germany. On lower administrative levels there have been a number of bothersome problems; discontent in the occupying forces, lack of food for the Germans, too-easy i'ratcnmation, black marketing, stirrings of u:\xi, and increased grumblings over meager rations. Here at home the public dorvj not identify itself with the problems t.f peace as it did during the war. This is unfortunate, though perhaps it is inevitable. The war demanded common ivirliei- ation in the fight against a common danger. This unity quickened on.- national conscience and sharpened our national 'vision in a manner sc-irci;ly possible under less tragic circumstances. We could see quite clearly then the'immense job to be done on the collective German mind if another threat by German militarism wore to be averted. Today? Well, we se'im to have lost interest in the whole nuV ti:r. In such an atmosphere it is par- icularly interesting to read a current appraisal of the German people l,y Dr. Thomas Mann. Dr. Mann, a German ^ through and through, was one of the first non-Jewish writers to leave his _ country in protest against Nazi policies. ' He departed in 1933, the first yi-av of Hitlerism—not under compulsion, but out of disgust. As one of the world's most eminent . novelists, Dr. Mann has a git'!, for • probing an individual or national mentality. "Germany," says Dr. Maim, "takes a morbid pride in her own. Irage.-ly, believing it to be unique. It is self- pity, part of the national egotism, which is preventing Germany from uo- operating with the Allies in her rc- vival." This describes an actual condition which many persons foresaw before Germany's collapse, but which scorns ' to have been forgotten in the facs of ";" more immediate duties. The Germans, ,^ fancying themselves betrayed, still con- T|- aider themselves the master race. They ';*" i»slst upon being waited on, They are Asia is Hie raw material ot crisis.

Conn., in the Joumnl of the American Medical Association. One leg is iits job. the second is his hobby, third his play, and fourth hts body. If the chair has fciir solid leg.! lie sits comfortably, but if any of the legs are too short, too long, or mfssinsr. he wobbles. Psychotherapy, Ihe personal tutoring for who arc living an unbalanced life, helps line up the legs. Work is essential to happiness. The most tragic feature of icVeness is the feeling that we arc not needed. As long as a normal person lias a job. life is worthwhile, man whose work brings him personal pleasure is fortuiiRic.

At this rate, it wouldn't be safe to fxpect final action on a labor bill much before the Fourth of July. First reports from the conference committees indicate the bill they will work out n s n compromise won't be too tout-h. Industry- wide eargainiiH; and welfare funds won't be banned. Most of the provisions of the Hartley bill whi,;!i the National Assn. ol Manufacturers wanted will be loned down. In spite of this.

HIS FUTURE KESTS ON I.AUOR ISIMj A second theory is that Republicans feel their first job this year is lo cut taxes and make good last'c election promises lo economize. Passing half a billion dollars' worth, of new appropria- lion s for housing, health and education wouldn't help the economy silualion any. So for this year. Taft's political reputation and the buildup for his presidential ambitions must rest on Hartley compromise bill which will he handed him in the next few weeks. As a mailer of fnel, the most effect ibis bill may have will be on Sen. Robert H. Taft himself. The bill in its final form will not contain many of the provisions which Senator Taft started out to net Taft's ideas and Minnesota Sen. Joe Ball's still more extreme ideas got pretty well watered down thi'oiu-li the efforts of Republican Sen. Irving M. Ive s of New York. It job, lie finds satisfaction in a hobby. There will come when dip hobby will be more important than a job, no matter how pleasant the job, IMPORTANCE OF PLAY Play is the business of childhood as it strengthens muscles and stimulates growth. Long after Ihe physical cffecls if play have disappeared, the lessons learned on Ihe play field remain. In order to be happy, man needs to ciijoy himself in Ihe company of others. Unless we learn to do this when, we are young, it will be difficult to master when we are older. The success of the old family physician with nervous patients was due lo his knowledge of people rather than of what was wrong with them. A modern psychiatrist is also successful in handling patients because he is first a physician, second a sociologist, third a psychologist, fourth an educator, and fifth n vocational guidance expert. QUESTION: My husband has had pains in his legs, for the past four years. Is this causey by arteries? ANSWER: If the trouble Is M his arteries, nerves to the arteries may be cut. or he may be given local treatments. 15 Years Ago In Blytheville — Miss Harwell lias returned from Jonesboro where she attend- cullure a document entitled "serving many." The more he read it the madder he got. He mailed it to Rep. Everett Dirkson of 111. -With'i the following comment: ™ "This sort of Him? is what clutters up flic 1'csl Office Department under a frank ami keeps thousands of government employees drawing salaries for twiddling their thumbs.

It urged people to eat better breakfasts and it bore a picture of a snowman with a pipe in his mouth flipping flapjacks to Ihe plates of three husky eaters of betler breakfasts. The congressman was not impressed. As chairman of the subcoimiit- IR in charge of money spent by the department, he called in Keith Kimebaugh. head press agent of .he agriculture experts. The hap- ess Hiniebaugh didn't know about the book, but he said his bureau was responsible. "This publication is so naive that it represents a kind of droll government humor," Dirkscn . said, leafing through it and rending a- loucl such statements as "eat plenty, but eat right," and "it's doubly important, thai a breakfast should include the right kinds of food in the right amounts." Dirksen was almost as angry as the taxpayer in Lnkefield when he got to the sentence which '/id a breakfast "should taste good and | Moore dance Friday vie you a lift."
