The power of Congress to investigate i* one of its most vital functions. Obviously laws can't be wisely drawn without a solid factual footing. Yet this power is perhaps the most abused of all those enjoyed by the lawmakers. Too often the partisan members of congressional committees set out in pursuit, not of all the evidence,' but of just those facts that will support the conclusions they have reached in advance. ' Politics being what it is, perhaps this is unavoidable. If it is, then severe limits obviously must be placed on the value of congressional inquiries. . In that event, then there indeed seems to be wisdom in these repeated calls for independent, private commissions to study serious issues which plainly are difficult to thresh out in the rough and tumble of the political area. As Lodge's colleagues already have pointed out, it's undoubtedly too late to shift the present probe from Congress to an outside group but the next time it's necessary to dig into a problem as • grave and as loaded with political dynamite as State Department security, the commission idea ought to be tried. Post Needs Attention The President has made a wise choice in naming Secretary of the Air Symington to head the National Security Resources Board. This post was vacant too long. It's reasonable to hope that this action means a marked speed-up in the preparing of plans for mobilizing the nation's industry in event of another war. To put off so vital a t'ask with the world in its present turbulent state is to court disaster. Shorter and Sweeter. . . Views of Others FTC Bags a Minnow In Complaint on Ads The Federal Trade Commission bagged a minnow from among the panacea- advertising 'fish:recentiy;when it cracky ed^wn./on cigarette manufacturers, but'the Commission should take a look at the predatory creature that's still Bwimmins about through the nation's various advertising media. . . , We'have reference to the screaming faith healers who prey on guillable persons for cash donations, ultimate destination, of .which is usually obscure. These self-styled appointees of God bombard the public with claims rivaling the miracles wrought by Christ. One recently said he had prayed for persons suffering from cancer, polio- mylitis, palsy, loss of speech, hearing and sight and other afflictions and diseases which have defied modern medical treatment. ; - This healer then said these persons had been cured in a miraculous fashion and the inference was that he had effected the cure. Further inference was that a cash "contribution" would expedite the cure. The healer added that he hated to talk of financial matters when he had missions of greater importance on his mind. It was noted that he did mention them, however. So the FTC can nail cigarette manufacturers to the legal wall for vague references to throat irritants, but mean. \vhile it should cast its hook about for the one that's getting away. Bipartisan Group Might Probe Without Politics Senator Lodge thinks the Senate's current inquiry into alleged Communists in the Stale Department is a poor way to promote loyalty among government workers. He proposed that a bipartisan commission be selected to take over Ihe investigation. According to Lodge, the probe inspired by Senator McCarthy is doing more harm than good as now conducted. Any inquiry on such a pattern, he said, besmirches innocent people, weakens the nation's standing before the world, fails to turn up the really dangerous individuals and may actually make their job easier by pulling the spotlight on others. This isn't the first lime a private commission has been suggested to ^take over investigations begun by Congress. Similar proposals were made during last year's probes of atomic energy security and the B-SG bomber procurement program.

Jordan, M. D. Written (or NEA Service Ringing, buzzing, swishing, pounding, hissing or other kinds of noises in the ears cause an enormous amount of discomfort and anxiety. Most people say that they would be willing to do almost anything to get rid of these noises. They are often associated with spells of dizziness; sometimes people actually fall and injure themselves when attacked by such a dizzy spell. The sounds complained of are not heard by. other people and yet they are not Imaginary. Most often they come from something deep in the ear or hearing mechanism Itself Several of these are grouped under he name Menlere's syndrome. This •ondition, In addition to causing the ear noLics and causing attacks o zzine. e s, is usually accompanied by slow but gradually worsening loss f hearing. In one of the most importan orms of this condition the cause L elieved to be a dropsy in the dee portion of the ear called the inne ar. or labyrinth.

The cholc* '!»'» good one intrinsically and especially gratifying ax an in•lance of a genuine renewal of bipartisanship In the .conduct of foreign policy. Mr. Dulles' appointment follows closely on the selection of John Sherman Cooper, former Republican senator from Kentucky, for a" similar assignment. The revival of bipartisanship in the handling of foreign affairs is due to a persisting need for showing the world thatTpartisanshlp ends at th« water 1 * edge, as somebne said. In addition, it his been stirred by the extraordinary exhibitions of confusion and controversy in Washington, as witness the display that attends the charges ot Republican Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin against the State Department. The usefulness of some outstanding evidence of continued solidarity has rarely been greater. The resumption of co-operation between Democrats and Republicans is due in considerable measure to the urging of Senator Arthur H. V»n- dtnberg of Michigan, now too ill to carry the burden of such undertakings as he used to It is a tribute to the value of his service that hi* voice should be so potent In resolving a situation that was going harmfully out of hand.and line. Incidentally, the way In which the news of the Dulles appointment was released indicates confusion at the White House. One secretary was denying the reports at about the same time another was affirming them. We can hope the affirmation stands up. The same uncertainty prevailed In regard to President Truman's decision on the farm bill. One secretary said he was vetoing the measure, but. after Vice President Barkley, Speaker Rayburn and others had pointed out the political angles, another functionary announced Mr". Truman would sign. —MEMPHIS COMMERCIAL, APPEAL WASHINGTON — (NEA1 — Forty per cent of all remaining U.S. virgin timber is in the Northwest. Twenty-five per cent Is In Oregon. This Is the last big area in which there Is a chance to practice sustained yield forestry — cutting timber no faster than it grows. But there are complications. The big fight now is over road rights-of- way to timberlands. Oregon Sen. Wayne Morse has a bill in Congress to provide $25. 000.000 worth of public access roads in big timber areas. The Morse bill has passed the Senate and is now before the House. Arid for the past yead Department of Interior has been studying new regulations on the use of roads through Bureau of Land Management acreage. What happens on the public lands may set a precedent for what happens on U.S. Forest service preserves. So the whole business is coming to an Important head. Representatives of the Lumber fanufacturers' Association, West oast Lumbermen's Association and ic Western Pine Association have een much In Washington to tell icir side of this story. It is the big umbermen's position that the gov- rnment shouldn't build or manage lese forest roads. They say private ndustry can do It better and cheap- r. and save the government money The catch in this argument li lat the price which the government gets for Its timber rights dc- jends on whether all competitive >Iddcrs can use the roads.

A.-Winston Churchill, vate lumberman builds a road 1 across land to which he lias timber rights, he can keep off competitors, and he can set his own price as to what he will pay for the timber on land, that lies beyond. He therefore controls n roadblock. About one-sixth of the Northwest's virgin timber Is on 2,5(10,000 acres of what is known as the "O. & C." Innd In the Douglas fir belt. This land was originally given as a grant by the government to the old Oregon and California company. It consists of every odd section of land, cheekerboarded in a 30-milc-wlde strip on either side of a right-of- way over which a road was supposed to be built. The O. A: C. right-of-way ran through the low land's between the Cnsendc ami Coast ranges. O. & C. was supposed to dispose of this land ,o settlers, but held it as an investment. The road was never built, so in 1915 ihe Supreme Court gave title buck to tbe government. It was assigned to Bureau of Land Management to administer. Under a 1937 aw, the Bureau was directed to manage this land so as to sustain the economy of the region. In a wny. this wns an original "full employment" act for this area. The Forest Service timberlnnds Ir this area nre mostly beyond the O & C. sections, on tlie higher slopes Whoever controls the roads flcrosj. the O. & C. land therefore also controls access to the larger Fores! Service preserves. Because of this checkerboarding of O, it C. land, private owners p the intermingled sections saw n chance to control all these rights Only a big operator can afford U build an access road. The situation that developed was of fluids find that an-attack comes on a few hours afterwards—probably because of the increased ac- culation of fluid in the labyrinth.

The Indian parlia- lent rtrendy has raUHed It. This agreement apparently dld- 't attempt to deal with all the roublesome issues between the two reat states, H was centered In the ninority problems which have been reducing so much bloodshed and estructlon of property in .both oun tries, RH is hi us Conflict Th&se problems of course stem rom the fierce religions conflict* which have been waged between he Hindus and the Moslems from ime immemorial. This strife WBA tven fresh impetus by the separation of the great Indian peninsula into the distinct nations. The division was based on the complect ion of the populations in the various areas. That is to say, the Hindu territories were grouped together and the same was dona slble. However, this resulted In a with the Moslems, so far as pos- bad division of Pakistan-- part of Assam on the eastern side of the the nation -being in Bengal and peninsula while the major portion Is in the northwest. Naturally It was Impossible to make a clean-cut division of populations, and as a result niany minority groups wexe left in both areas—Moslems, In India and Hindus in Pakistan. Moreover, grou ps were *c a t tered, for n t he Hi ndus In Pakist a ri were gathered into one community, and the sarnt was tru* of Moslems irt India. The result of this division hiui been much communal strife In the body. omething of a monopoly In whlc he smaller operators 'were froze ut. They found it impossible I i(( for government .timber bccaus hey couldn't get at It. There ar low roughly 30 big timber cutters : he Northwest, as against 12' mailer operators. Many of the price factors !n thes bids for timber are of course con cealed. If a private operator spent $1.000,000 to build a rond across h own timber, he has to get that mon ey back. One way he can get back Is by bidding say $10 a thousand feet for. government timber, instead of $12, In the long run, therefore, it is the government that pays Indirectly for the cost of the road. What the Department of Interior has been considering for the past year is a new set of regulations which would give every bidder access to timber rights over public roads or private roads on public lauds. The big lumber companies are protesting this move. They maintain that the builders of the roads should have absolute control over the roads, and that the government should accommodate its program of Surgery Used Several medical treatments have been tried.
