Itself can do much to promote the European self-relianco which the Dutch, by their renouncing of aid,'have given a push. •Something New in Politics Wesley Roberts, the ntw Republican nntional chairman, is an unusual occupant of that post, Roberts is quiet, Intensely hard workfiiff, tremendously efficient. He toils at politics like a man dedicated to a cause. In 0:10 year lit made the big leap from state politics in his native Kansas, where lie had been OOP chairman, to the national ulnae, lie Accomplished it because his way of politicking paid off in results. Those who could 'observe know that Robtrta played a highly important role in the successful spring campaign last year which led to President Kisenhowcr's nomination. After thnt he Managed to put the rambunctious Eisenhower amateurs in harness with the Old Guard professionals for the pull to the Nov. 4 election. Roberta lacks the customary earmarks of the national chairman. He has no money, nnd there's no bluster or hokum about him. Newsmen quickly learned that he always shot straight. If li ecan maintain that record in this bigger job, ho will bo breaking new ground. He has his work cut out fort, him- Patronage is one worry. It's an especial headache for a party that has been out for 20 years; the demand for jobs greatly exceeds tht supply. And Roberts has to try to widen in 1054 the thin margins by .which the Republicans now control the two houses of Congress. Many Americans use the term "professional politician" almost with contempt. A feu- more practitioners like Roberts, and a new, highly respected profession of politics may be born. U. S. Could Boost Self-Heip Of Europe by Freer Trade Back in the days when the Allies' World War I debts to America were in the news, the grim story of regularly defaulting nations was relieved each year by the pleasant word that tiny Finland had paid another debt installment right on the nose. Finland's faithfulness became so renowned that most everyone understood when Bob Hope, embarking one time oh a trip to Europe, cracked: "Secretary of the Treasury iUorgcnthnu is aboard. He's going over to thank Finland." ' / Today we don't lend to the Europeans and others, but hand them outright grants for economic and military development. We do tiiis because we believe it serves their welfare and security and our own. Yet it would be foolish to pretend Hint we nre not sometimes haunted by the seeming endlessness of the money-giving process. It was therefore with pleasure — and fond recollections of Finland — that we read of the Dutch government's recent decision to renounce ? 15,000,000 in U. S. assistance for the remainder of tlie current fiscal year which ends June 30. To be sure, the Dutch were able to take this happy step only because of some unexpected dollar earnings that resulted from stilling some of Iheir accounts with Indonesia. They make no predictions about how long their present "dollar equilibrium' 1 will last, and reserve the right to request more direct aid next year. Nevertheless, Americans may be permitted to hope that this refreshing action can in time become n habit, not alone in the Netherlands but elsewhere in Europe. There have been many evidences of a growing will among the peoples of Europe to live without the prop of American assislance. But undoubtedly that resolve needs to be made still firmer. The Dutch example may help toward that end. t It does not rest with the Europeans alone, however, to bring about a condition where big U. S. money .grants are the exception instead of the rule- In renouncing that $15,000,000, the Dutch pointedly remarked that a more lasting solution of Kurope's dollar problem depends on lowered U. S. trade barriers and other boosts .to the kind of balanced commerce that will let the Europeans earn their own way in the world. By moving boldly to encourage a freer %w of trade, the United States Views of Others Attack on All Business Th« federal novernmunt prosecution of Th« Kansas City Star, while of primary Interest among newspapers, is a blow at the freedom of nil Acncrlcnn business. It Involves not the freedom of the press to express Us views, a right which Is protected by the Constitution, but. the right of 'n business to handle itt affairs In it* own wav. _r~.- The advertising and ; fate structures of The Kansas City Staj-, a combination of morning nnd evening newspapers, nre under attack. The* government contends that so-called "forced combination" prices for advertising or subscriptions In both papers Is violation of anti-trust laws. It is somewhat like telling a clothier he cannot, sell a two-pants suit. Newspaper publishers, of coursef are subject to the same la\vs as everybody else. In the case of The Star, the government Is trying also to revoke Its licenses from the federal Communications Commission for radio and TV licenses. Fortunately The Star needs no license to publish newspapers, else that. too. would be In Jeopardy! The government action in the dying days of Triimnnlsm looked on the surface like another attempt to undermine the freedom of the press by weakening its financial independence. Tho case has even wider application If carried into practices of other types of business. We hope the Elsenhower administration among its first official ads will withdraw all such attacks on private enterprise. —Charleston (S.C.) News and Courier.

Q — I should like to know the cause of canker sores in the mouth. I have them quite often and would like an explanation. H. W. A — Most people who develop canker sores recover rather promptly and rarely, if ever, liax-e trouble ngatn. There are some, however, in whom Uic cmiker sores come back again and again. The reason for such recurrence's not clear. A low-grade infection, possibly with a virus, may be at fnult In some cases. In some tliero is reason to believe that allergy involved, nnd perhaps in some there Is a vitamin deficiency. With all this vagueness nbout canker sores, it is not surprising that too often they prove dilficuit to treat, even if investigations have been niadc to try to determine wiial Is at fault in particular Instances. There certainly does not scorn to be any one cure that works with all who fall victim to this annoying condition.
