A Good Start— Let's Follow Through Canada's agreement to accept the 32 Czechs who dashed for freedom aboard an express train a few weeks ago is a happy sequel to what threatened to become a dismal story. Under procedures all too common in a Western Europe besieged by a steady stream of Iron Curtain refugees, many of the Czechs had been arrested for illegal entry into Germany. This event highlighted a problem that deserves major attention from high Allied authorities. Resettlement of the 32 Czechs, arranged by the Iron Curtain Refugee Campaign tinder leadership of Gen. Carl A. Spaatz, retired Air Force commander, is a token of the kind of solution called for on .a 'much larger scale. Let's hope it inspires action. The Communists, incidentally, have attempted to explain away the embarrassing express train escape by dubbing it a "terroristic plot" by American secret agents. The only terror involved is the Reds' terror that their own people will know the facts of the case. AFL Uses Wrong Yardstick To Measure Senators'Worth At San Francisco the American Federation of Labor marked 19 U. S. senators as targets for defeat in 1952. Fourteen are Republicans. • It's a free country. Anybody has a perfect right to oppose any candidate for office. Yet it is possible to question the wisdom of the A. F. of L. action on other grounds. AH 19 of the federation's list are there because they voted for the Taft- Hartley labor law and are trtus deemed "short-sighted and aijti-labor." Taft- Hartley, of course, has* been a red flag to top labor leaders ever since its passage in 1947. At first blush the newest blacklist might seem wholly logical, since the A. F. of L.'s traditional policy has been one of rewarding its friends and penalizing its enemies. But the federation's definition of friend and foe is so narrowly conceived that one may reasonably ask whether organized labor really understands where its interests lie. To begin with, the case against the Taft-Hartley act is unproved. There is no substantial evidence that it has damaged labor's course, or ever will. Hence the use of that law was a yardstick of friendship is largely artificial. : But beyond that, does the A. F. of L. really wish to judge the usefulness of a senator by so limited a gauge in this critical time? .The next five or ten years may de': termine whether we are to have peace i or the most destructive war in all history. Decisions made in Congress will , play a big part in settling that great f Issue. Consequently, we need on Capitol Hill men whose judgments are informed, imaginative and independent. They have ths problem of deciding not only how to meet the Communist threat to freedom, but how to foster at the same time an orderly, continuing growth of American life in all its richly varied facets. Is it fair to assure that a Congress : whose prime qualification was friendship for labor's specific wants would be the best Congress to face the crisis ahead ? The answer is clearly no. Lawmakers must be chosen by broader gauge. Breadth of vision, devostion to national as against regional or other special in- tests, respect for the facts, these are some of the qualities by which we must measure candidates for Congress. In these times of stress, men thus - equipped to'shape national destinies are • the friends of every American—including the leaders and tha rank and file of Views of Others Idealism, or Self Interest? There is a principle In diplomacy which holds that no individual, nor nation, can reasonably be expected to follow any course not dictated by self Interest. The seeming cold-bloodedness, the hint of the Machiavellian, in thnt principle apparently haa rendered It distasteful to the drafters of American foreign policy. We've, largely chosen, Instead, to chart our way on the basis of lofty ideals. Ideals arc swell, but, if drown too fine, mankind, unfortunately, has a tendency not to measure up. Criticism of our "Impractical Idealism" comes from ft man In a position to know, George P. Kcnnan, top figure In State Department policy planning until he took off a year ago lor work at Princeton's Institute of Advanced Study. While; other countries followed the down-to- earth principle of self Interest, Mr. Kcnnan said, we have preached high ideals—and tailed to maintain the force to give them meaning . As quoted by Tims, Mr. Kennan's prescription for America U "the courage to recognize thnt If our own purposes and undertakings here at home are decent ones, unsullied by arrogance or hostility ... or delusions of superiority, then the pursuit of our national interest can never fall to be conducive to a better world." That sounds good, but could we Idealistic Americans really act consistently In our best Interest in foreign affairs? We follow the rule ot self-interest In day-to-day living, but often are unwilling to do so as a million dealing with other lands. We have, however, rlone much the same thing to some extent today, In our new policy toward Franco Spain, and In our moves to make Japan and Germany strong against Russia. Mr. Kennan's view Is challenging, but we Americans are what we are—an idealistic people. And as such, we've done mighty well In the worlrt. — ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT These Arguments Aren't Particularly Convincing Many business and farm leaders continue to Insist that, the economy, if left alone, win level off and that controls are wicked and arc Hurting everyone. Abolish economic controls, or at least weaken them to the point of Ineffectiveness, they urge, and everything will be all right. Prices and the cost of living will return (o normalcy. Perhaps they should try to convince the government's Bureau of Labor Statistics of that. The BLS Saturday roporteri that food costs continued their dizzy climb in August, rising 1.3 per cent over the previous all-time record reached In July. —ATLANTA JOUTiNAL SO THEY SAY In Our Time? Peter Edson's Washington Column — U. S. Has an Important Interest In Impending British Elections WASHINGTON (NEA) There Peter Edsbn is an Important American angle to the British elections which Labor Party Prime Minister Clement AtUee has called for Oct. 25. Ordinarily, it's tough enough for American voters to keep their own politics and politicians straightened out, without bothering over British domestic Issues. But this different. l Underlying all other reasons for ca II ing British elections now are the United Kingdom's unfavorable trade balance, reduction of gold i reserves and financial relations' with the United States, involved in the last item are questions of new American aid and payment of the first principal and Interest, due Dec. 31, on the $3.75 billion U.S. loan to Britain. First payment on a Canadian loan ot $1.2 billion also comes due at this time. It was noteworthy during last week's North Atlantic Treaty Council meeting in Ottawa and the Inter national Bank and Monetary Fund meeting In Washington the week before that British representatives went out of their way to spread the word and paint the picture of Britain's financial plight. This was not necessarily done in any crying tone. It was the usual calm, British portrayal of the facts of financial life. Britain's exports are up. and dependent on Imports, as compared with only 4 per.ceub.for the U.S. Because of these increases in prices paid, Britain's dollar surplus of last year is being converted into a dollar deficit this year. Exports Musi Balance Defense Spending Britain :B spending roughly $4.7 billion on defense this year and lor the next two years, To meet the cost of this effort, it would be nec- e.ssary for Britain to .sell that much more exports. Because of steel shortages, coal shortages, conversion of: Industry to arms production, it is impossible to increase exports by this amount. The interesting thing about all this presentation of gloom was (hat no visiting Briton ever got aroune to saying what was going to be done about it. The ball was simply pxit out in mid-field, apparently In the hope that someone with bright idea would pick it up and run. What the British themselves propose to do about it is apparently to be left until after the elections. I the Conservatives win, it will be their ball to run with. If the Laboi Party wins and improve its pres> ent slim majority in Parliament that will presumably be the slgna and the mandate. It will then havi to pick up the ball t and buck thi line with further cutbacks on thi British economy. Or something. In talks between American am British officials, there were impli cations that the British might bk additional U. S. aid. But they neve came right out and said they would prices are U per cent above lastj or how much. They did ask for ai year's. Britain has to pay 35 per cent more for her imports, however. Britain's economy is 24 per cent, allocation of 800.000 tons of U. S steel—not the two million tons or iglnally reported. once over Th« DOCTOR SAYS B? EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. Written for NEA Service Although we learned in medical chool that gallstones were most ommon in the "fair, fat and forty." are by no means restricted to eople described in such terms. True, ,hey are most frequent after thirty, nd true also, that three-fourths of 11 cases are in women. Gallstones, as the name implies, ie in the gallbladder, or the pas- ageways from It. and this little sear-shaped pouch is located under he liver on the right side, a short lietance below the ribs. What causes gallstones to form? 7here are believed to be several hings which play a part. Stagna- ion of bile in the gallbladder is one. Overweight, wearing of corsets, occupations requiring a leaning forward position and sagging of the abdominal organs are believed to aroduce such stagnation. Lack of exercise, particular!} when combined with too much fondness, for food, also favors the formation of stones. Infection in the gallbladder may also play a part Many persons with gallstones have an increase of a substance caller cholesterol In their blood, am cholesterol is present In mobt gall stones. Gallstones may or may not causi symptoms. The most frequent earl; symptom IB Indigestion. A vagu Iceling of discomfort In the abdo men, gas. vomiting may occur. Often there is pain In the region of the gallbladder or tinder the right shoulder blade in the back. A yellow color to the skin, or jaundice, is not always present. The most important aid in diagnosing gallstones !s the X-ray. Sometimes the stone can be seen In an ordinary X-ray picture; in many cases, however, a dye has to be given which fills the gallbladder and outlines the stones In a kind of a silhouette picture. Many Factors to Consider If gallstones should be found, should the gallbladder be taken out a sense of fullness, intestina and sometimes nausea and lightly- B* A. A.

The amount due the D. S. is $32 million principal and $87 million nterest. The amount due Canada at the same time is approximately $33 million (Canadian). But there is a, provision in both loans that interest can be waived if the British regard their reserves as inadequate or if the International Monetary Fund determines that Britain cannot earn enough from her exports to finance imports of the same volume as in 1936-38. After the elections, there will be tremendous pressure in Britain to ask for a waiver en this interest. If the Labor Party wins by a slim margin. Jt won't be able to resist this pressure. If the waiver is asked for, there will be criticism of Britain in the United States. The question may then become an American political issue, used by the Republicans against the Democrats who granted this loan in the first place. If the loan payment is made, however, it may mean only that Britain will e.xpect that much more aid ircm the United States next year. There is no economic aid for Britain in the legislation now be fore Congress. The amount of military aid earmarked for Britain has not been disclosed.

It would be fine if some method could be used which would dissolve the stones without operation, but no way of doing this has been found practical. Even though many people carry gallstones for years without know- ng it, there is always danger of discomfort or Injury to the general lealth. Treatment other than operation usually includes attention to diet, and exercise adapted to the Jidlvidual condition and needs.
