Baruch's proposal for a "gene|s ral staff" for peace to stay vigilantly on the job until the cold war is won. As Baruch sees such a staff, it would'deal'contmuously with the whole range of peace problems.'It would serve as a "central point of decision, weighing all the many commitments pressed upon us, guiding the best disposition of our strained • resources, determining where we can-achieve a decisive breakthrough—and -at what effort." This looks wise, for one thing, because it might help us Americans face the realities of these difficult times. Baruch points that out: "Although the cold war is now dragging into its sixth year and despite the enormous resources we have expended, we still have not faced up to what total peace waging requires." This plainly may mean more than ,1ust a wiser channeling of resources into the various cold war theaters, important as that is. To keep pace with Russia may call for far heavier sacrifices than we have yet made or shown any inclination to make. In a conflict that is perhaps more dangerous than any hot war we ever fought, there may be no place for the sort of pleasant, even occasionally luxurious living Americans are now enjoying. For example, many critics have charged that our defenses may actually be somewhat below the minimum safety mark. Whether or not this is true, it is clear the Administration is trying to strike a perilous balance between giving us minimum protection and allowing us to keep on doing very good business as usual. Naturally a demand for greater sac- rifces would be politically unpopular. But we're playing with fire if it is political timidity rather than a sound appraisal of realities that dictates our present policies. A GHQ for peace, set up as Baruch conceives it, would have the power to wage the cold war on a unified, global basis. With that broad outlook, it would bo well equipped to know whether we were at an ymoment playing with fire by wasting our resources or not expending them fully enough in the right ways. No sensible person wants to saddle our civilian economy with crushing burdens that throttle our peacetime growth and progress. Indeed, if we erred too heavily in that direction we might play right into the Russians' hands. But nei- ther mint w« «idaaf*r MM rarrtal of our freedom* by touting •lone M^ee- •bly while the CommunUt* build mo M overpowing advantage over u*. The delicate judgment* that must be made to keep ua on course, with neither too much nor too little given to this tense struggle, »eem a fitting responsibility for a group of our highest caliber men. As a general staff for peace, they could keep us all courageously alert to the hard tasks of a cold war. At the same time they would have to serve as watchful guardians of our peacetime liberties and, too, as energetic promoters of the nation's economic progress. Out Seeing the Sights Supposing a Russian submarine or two really was lurking off the California coast, we don't have to assume that it necessarily was bent on evil purposes —maybe the Soviet sailors were just hoping for a periscope's eye view of some Hollywood beauties. From what we've heard, the Russians' various five- year plans make no provisions for that sort of thing. Views of Others Different in Plain English. Much depends on how a thing is &aid. Some humorist put it this way: If you tell a woman that time stands still for her, she is pleased. But Just try telling her that her face would stop a deck I Take the Welfare State as an example which ominously afreets us all The politicians make it look right pretty and enticing. Aa they describe It, the Welfare State is a half-breed rich uncle and good fairy bubbling over with eagerness to help us. We'll be assured of Jobs. Well be taken care of when we're out of work or old. And If the wicked conservatives' don't prevent, It will doctor U5j and nurse us, and generally shield us from every care. But put that sugary hoakum Into' plain English, and what does it say? Just this: You're a spineless, dim-witted lot, unable to look after yourselrea. You can't make your own way; you haven't got enough ambition and sense. Your ancestors did it, and built a great nation, but you're wa*hed up. Let the government take your money and provide for you. That's the Welfare State In blunt words. Like a fire, lt'{ a fine sight while It's burning, but a bleak one afterwards. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT Baffled Secretary Secretary of the Treasury Snyder and his boys at Washington say they are puzzled to find that farmers, lawyers, doctors and higher salaried folks ar payjng less income taxes this year.

Two plus two still equals four, Mr. Secretary; and two minus two la zero, even according to Einstein. —DALLAS MORNINd NEWS The Real McCoy The "Big Ten" Young Republicans (using a name created for regional football) met at Ann Arbor, Mich., with "observers" present from 12 other Mid-West colleges, and adopted a platform for the Republican party. They made pronouncements on many matters, but every section of the platform included the sloganistic term "Opportunity State." (Replacement for welfare same.) It should be known to Mid-West Republican collegians, as to all other people, that Arkansas Is the Opportunity State, actually and by deliberate selection of the term. (See motor license tags.) It was, moreover, made the Opportunity State by the Almighty and the Democratic party, along with the vision, enterpri»e and resourcefulness of Its own people. —ARKANSAS GAZETTE So They Say The Russians balance their books every night.

They Must Be Overjoyed "Down Under" Peter Edson's Washington Column — 51 'Liberty Bells' from France Will Ring Up Sales inBondDrm WASHINGTON — (NEA1— Those 51 full-scale, one-ton, exact replicas of the Liberty Bell, which will be used in the coming "Independence" Savings Bond drive, had to be .mnde in Prance because there wasn't any American cDinpany that would take the order. There is one U. S. bell-caster, the Manley Co . of Troy, N. Y.. but It was unable to take • the contract and deliver on time. So the order went to -the 156 - year - old Pecard plant, main industry i n the little town of Annecy-Ie -Vieux Haute Savole, in ^he Alps country. The bells will be cast In an nn- cient foundry where nearly all the operations in the bell-makers art are still clone by hand. This is the biggest order the town's haii in years, and it's booming. Total cost will be about 5108.000. or. $2000 a bell. Six U. S. copper companies furnished the metal, u. S. Steel and Ford compa-'tes arc donating mountings, so the whole promotion stunt won't cost the Treasury a cent. First bells are due in New York April 17, which happens to be the eve of the. 175th anniversary, of Paul Revere's ride. All bells will be delivered by mid-May. After the bond drive, one bell .will be given to each state and the District of Columbia. Only 49 bells were ordered at first. Then It was decided bells should be ordered for Hawaii and Alaska, too, since they soon be states. The Savings Bond people could have ordered iron replicas for round $50 each, but decided may Being 80 per cent copper, they won't crack, and they won't be cast with imitation cracks In them, either, They'll be handy to have around, of course, to ring out and rouse the people to arms against any possible invasion of men from Mars in tlielr flying saucers, although nobody thought of anything like that when the bells were ordered. Where Was "Brother" John L.7 H was "Brother" Green or the AFL. and "Brother" Potofsky of the Amalgamated clothing Workers. and ''Brother" to everybody else, all over the place. You never did see so much brotherly love as when the AFL and the CIO threw their luncheon in honor oi J. H. Olden- broeck of The '^Netherlands. He's the secretary-general ot the new InternationalConfederation of Free Trade Unions, termed last year in London as a rival to the Communist World Federation of Trade Unions. Main dish or the cocktails, three- course and salad luncheon was two big lamb chops. Said "Brother" Oldenbroecfc, a round, merry little blue-eyed Dutchman who speaks perfect English. "I suppose one chop was furnished by the AFL, and the other by the CIO." Cracked a reporter: "Gravy courtesy of United Mine Workers." At the Shirtsleeve Level Department of State diplomacy Isn't always conducted at the minister plenipotentiary and ambassador extraordinary level.

We can proleed with confidence that we are capable of handling anything we may be called upon to dear with. Hanh Languafe Used Soviet l"orelgn Minister Andrei y. Vishinsky, pursuing his usual Rtrongarm method, has used harsh language In charging "a gross violation of the Soviet frontier (Latvia) by an American military plane." He declares 'this "constitutes an unheard of violation of the elementary rules of international law." The tale as Vlshimky unfolds it is that last Saturday "a four-en- glned type. military plane of the B-29 Flying Fortress, bearing Amerlcan Identification marks sighted" south of Lepaya, Latvia. When the plane penetrated what Russia claims Is Soviet territory, a night of Soviet fighter planes de- the American plane a nearby airdrome. and cholesterol Is present in most illstones. Gall stones may be present without causing any symptoms. The most common early symptom, how ever, is Indigestion. There Is often vague feeling of discomfort In the abdomen, a sense, of fullness a good deal of intestrnal 'gas and sometimes nausea and vomiting .occur. Often there is pairi in the region of the gallbladder or under the right shoulder in the back.' Jaundice or a yellow color to the skin is not always present. A gallstone may get caught in the neck of the gallbladder or in the passageway going down to the Intestines. When this happens their U severe pain called colic. The mos' important aid in diagnosing gallstones is the X-ray. Sometimes the stones can be seen In an ordinary X-ray picture; in many oases, however, a dye has to be given which fills the gallbladder and outlines the stones in a silhouette picture. Factora' Weighed When gallstones are found the question comes up as to whether _ _ .^ or not the gallbladder .should be I when the American plane was fired taken out by operation. This dec- on . an d "turned towards the sea ision depends on how many attacks of colic there have been, what the symptoms are, whether there is infection present in the gallbladder, what the X-ray studies show, and the other things, such as age and physical condition. It would be fine if some method could be used which would dissolve the atones without operation, but as yet no way of doing this has been found. manded Oat follow it to Then: "The American plane not only failed to comply with this demand but opened fire on tlie Soviet planes. Owing to this, an advanced Soviet fighter was forced to open fire in reply, after which the'Amer- Ican plane turned towards the sea and disappeared." The Soviet Slory That's the Soviet story. By peculiar coincidence the U.S. ^air Force ( headquarters at Wlesbttjn, Germany, had been searching for a missing U.S. plane — a Navy version of the B-24 bomber— over the Baltic. This plane was unarmed, It was said, and had a crew of ten. That may be the unfortunate craft which encountered a flight of Soviet fighters. An extraordinary aspect of thlj situation Is that it was Saturday Many people carry gallstones for years without sever symptoms, but t there is always danger of discomfort or : their,general health may be injured. Treatment othe'r- than operation usually includes attention to diet, with special emphasis toward avoiding those foods which produce symptoms of Indigestion (particularly fats), and a moderate amount of exercise. 15 Years -Today Martha Washbum, Prances McHaney.
