Truman's Jibes Harm Both Himself and His Off ice It is not customary in this country to announce the names of men who decline ambassadorships, nor (o make public currency of their reasons for refusal. President Truman thus violated precedent sharply when he told the ration that John Foster Dules had turned down the job of ambassador to Japan because he wised to save the Republican Parly from going isolationist. As is well known by now, Dulles is the chief architect of the recently approved Japanese peace treaty. In a lon# series of uniquely effective individual meetings with the various countries who were parties to that pact, Dulles laid the foundation for one of the most forward-looking peace documents ever drawn. For this service lie was entitled to the fullest gratitude of the American people. More specifically, he had earned the thanks of Mr. Truman and his administration. The President may well have thought he was discharging this obligation when he offered Dulles the chance to be the first post-war ambassador to Japan. But in forcing Dulles into public dis- ctission of his motives for rejecting tlie post, .Mr. Truman has extinguished every evidence of his gratitude, lie has embarrassed, indeed almost insulted, n man who served him and the United Slates notably. Speculation over the President's pur- sccins to fit. in |Kii-t at least, a well-established pattern. Mr. Truman seldom can resist an opportunity to voice his distaste for the opposition party, or for that matter his opponents within his own party. Ho enjoys taking petty slaps at ' his adversaries. In this case, he apparently found the temptation sufficiently strong t,, overcome any proper feeling ,,f appreciation he may have had for Dulles' superb performance. It is (|iiite true that the GOP has marked isolationist element,". But they are not in command of the party and have not nominated a candidate for President since the I'nitcd States was thrust into world leadership by World War II and its aftermath. | n p|;,j n fact, Hie isolationists are in distinct minority. Jlr. Truman theicfme indulged in evident distortion when he implied (hat the Republican Party was in imminent danger of falling into isolationist paihs. He paid no credit to the many effective world-minded men in that party. By 5 hinting that Dulles was a rare bird, the I'lvsident may actually have ftirred resentment in COP circles and li«v« undercut Dulles' influence in hit party. Kurthermore, any other Republican may now look with »xtr«m« dufavor upon the idea of serving Mr. Truman in an important capacity, especially in foreign affairs. Why should h« expose himself to childish jibe* which »eem like calculated ingratitude. The President has given no support to the idea of a bi- pnrt/snn foreign policy, by his insistence on venting silly party wrath. In Hie end, he coi-UinJy has done no real injury to Dulles' position with the American people, who will not forget his commendable service for peace. As so often in the past, Mr. Truman has largely harmed himself and the hi«h office he holds. Fortunately the greatness of the United Statra Jnfu.soA the presidency with H /iindnmental strength and prestige which cannot be damaged. Otherwise, it might by now have sunk to the level of a precinct captain's post. Views of Others Cotton Growers May Find Consolation Here Cijticm growers, /.iced now with the prospect of (iir lower prices limn they had anticipated some motitlLS RKO when the KOveimnent urged HII Increase in planting, may find sonic solace in the new trend toward the use of cotton in rutf production. Cotton rugs have been produced for many yean, of comae, but chiefly by small manulactmer.s. Now, Business Week report, 1 ., some of the nation's biggest producers nre looking Into cotlon. This may well mean that before long production of cotton nig« will not be limited to scatter rugs and the small turned type, but will be expanded to Include tha large brondlooitu. This trend toward cotton stems from the hlBh. price ot wool. Mamilactnrcrs, revolting at the Increases In the cost oJ their raw material, turned first ioward rayon and wool blends.

Peter ft/son's Washington Column — Release of Matador Stoty Shows of Security Program WASHINGTON (NEA)—Release information on The MaUidor H-61 guided missile presents the >est possible example of problems nvolvert in carrying out President Truman's Sept. 26 order directing all government agencies to withHbld military secrets. The President declared that 11 newspapers had H'unlrd to protect this country, they should not have printed "The Matador" story. The newspapers, however, got photographs and story on The Matador from Department of Defense, as a handout release on Sevt. 13. It announced t h a t the Air Forces was creating its first "guided missile" squadron for training In handling the B-G1 at Peter Edson the Banana River ijase In Florida. Since this, information was handed to them on a plal- ler. newspapermen at the President's press conference couldn't see what was wrong with printing it. After tile conference. While House Press Secretary Joe Short issued a clarification of President '[Yuman's clarification which said it would so bo all right for news- papers to use Information given them by authorized government officials. This seemed to make, but it still did not explain how or why Department ol Defense had given out the original Matador story, If It was, as the President Indicated, a breach of security. Credit for breaking the original Matador story is given to Clay Blair or Time Magazine. At Department of Defense, it is presumed that Blair got his Information from the. manufacturer, the Glenn L. Martin Co. ol Baltimore. Blair's .source,' however, 1s his own secret which he has the right to protect. Other Sources Had Information The Information could have come from other sources. At least 10,000 people living in the vicinity of Cocoa, yia., the Banana River guided missile firing range and testing center, have seen and heard these new weapons. Regardless of the source, when Clay Blair got his story, he took it to Department of Defense for review and clearance. Col. Joe Ed- fiei'ton refvised to pass the story. Pails of the manuscript were considered wrong. But to indicate what was wrong might only reveal the alternative, which was what would be right. Time Magazine then .declined to accept this verdict. Tinje-man Blair took the stor yto Clayton Prltchey. Department ot Defense Director of Information an announced that the story wai about to be printed. Mr. rritchey found himself caught In a squeeze. Since there is no peacetime censorship law, he could not order the story killed. U Time wanted to print the story as written, with some of the material wrong and some of It considered highly classified, that wa-s its responsibility. Mr. Frltchey sayj he felt hij hand was forced. So a compromise was reached. Reporter Blair's copy was edited down. The wrong parts and the classified secrets were taken out. Time accepted these corrections and agreed to print the story as revised. To take the jting off ol having Its hind forced. Department of Air force, prepared a short release Defense, or more specifically the and gave out pictures ol the B-61, announcing formation of the first Matador squadron. Tim* Wouldn't Have XJaed Story James R. Shepley, Time's Washington bureau chief, says Time would not have used the story if Department of Defense had stamped Blair's copy "Not approved for publication."

At least that appeared to be the topic at hand the other night when i ran out of space, time, black coffee and cigarettes. The rhubarb between the Departments of Interior and Agriculture as to which should get top billing as the government's official, rnln- maklng body should, I believe, end In a draw with neither getting the assignment. If the government IE hell-bent on controlling everything, including the weather, It will find that a separate agency will be necessary. After all, everybody talks about Uie weather and no one does anything about It so the Job is bound to be a big one —too big for an agency also occupied with pounding Its own square pegs into round holes.

Written for NEA Service On. trouble which comes from measuring the blood pressure is that far too many people pay ton much attention to whether the blood pressure goes up or down a few poinU. It Is natural for the blood pressure to vary somewhat, and normal blood pressure is not always fixed at one certain level. Although one should not worry about the blood pressure too much, It Is worth while knowing just what It is and what causes It to go up or down. The blgod flowing through the presses on the walls of arteries these tubes just as water does on a rubber hose. The degree of pressure is measured by tying a band or cufi around the arm and Inflating It with air until the air pressure equals that in the artery. When the heart contracts, U (orces the blood out Into the arteries and this f'rcituces the high point of the pressure. When the heart relaxes, the pressure of blood In the arteries falls somewhat. The high point of the pressure Is called "systolic" and the low point a called "diastollc." This is why doctors give two figures for the blcod pressure, such a_s 120/80. The amount of blood present, the condition of the arteries—especially their elasticity—the thickness of the blood, and the nerve supply to the walls of the arteries also influence the blood pressure. ISN'T STATIONARY The Mood pressure does not remain the same all the time. Nervous disturbances, cold, exercise and excitement, all tend to increase the blood pressure. For this reason, it Is often true that the first test of the blood pressure in any doctor's office may be higher than normal. Just because of the excitement of the visit. A constantly high blood pressure can come from heart trouble. It can come from a disease which thickens the blood. It can result also from a decrease In the elasticity of the arteries caused by deposits of calcium which have made them hard and brittle. This is the high blood pressure which accompanies hardening of the arteries. There are many other kinds of high blood pre-ssure in some of which 'the cause can be discovered and in others not. One sure thing is that worrying about high blood pressure does not help in the slightest. his own queen, forcing out West's king.

Just watch- Ing (he buck-passing In Washington after a foul-up like (his would be an education In political science. Or suppose Florida knew which wires U) pull In Washington and got one of Its frequent hurricanes shipped through (he Canal Zone and sent up the California coast. Secession by California could result, and we'd have Gone With the Wind to do all over again. Unless widespread changes fn governmental methods come about, tailor-made weather could become a curse rather than a blessing in the event a backlog of orders began piling up. By the time a farmer got his application for a spring rain processed, the showers might arrive In time to wash the snow off his barn roof. There aJso would be a certain of amount of reckoning with private enterprise when radio and television stations and drive-In movie theaters kick up a fuss about downpours, snow, sleet, hail and other phenomena putting the bite on reception and the box office at unsea- sonal moments. An even grimmer prospect lies In the application of controlled weather to the field of organized milscle- fle,.xing. Since they have fixed everything to date from basketball games to ping pong tournaments, it is possible that gamblers ivitb the right connections could clean up by wagering that a.given contest would be rained out. And at the relatively low cost of a deep freeze or » mink coat x or a. ham not exceeding the 12-pound limit, said rain could be arranged. But worst of all; Is the thought of Main, Vermont and sundry other states of similar political hue being inundated or languishing under 10 feet of snow because their Inhabitants market! ballots In fnvor of the wrong party.
