Thanks to the Navy, life gets easier and easier for the foreign spy- Time was • when he really had to dig for his facts. But now he can slip into a quiet little saloon, order a drink and do his daily chore just by giving a close look at photographic murals on the walls. Silly as this may sound, it's true. 'Anybody curious about how Washington looks from 49,000 feet, for example, can drop into the capital's Club 400, run by on* Charles Bomze, and squint at what • it believed to be the highest altitud* photograph; ever made. - The »hot has been blown up to hug« lize, which will tend to reduce eyestrain among foreign agents. As a further ac* cidental convenience, the stratospheric picture is flanked by a blow-up of th* graceful Supreme Court building, pro^ viding a nice change of pace. We have the word of Air Force veteran* that any bombardier would rat* ;this aerial shot of Washington a com- 'plete joy. It covers 121 square miles and clearly defines every military target in the capital, from the White House to the naval ordnance works. Amazing as it may seem, at th* time this picture was discovered in Club 400 by an enterprising United Press reporter it had not been released for publication. Its existence was known to th« press weeks ago, but it was being kept "tecret" for reasons which have now evaporated. The Navy had planned to offer the shot as a "surprise exhibit" in the B-36 bomber hearings before the House Armed Services Committee. The idea va» to show that Navy jet planes could climb high enough to intercept and, presumably knock down the giant bomber. But the hearings were ended abrutly before the picture could be presented. Meantime, Proprietor Bomze acquired possession of the thing when a customer left it in a booth. He waited awhile for somebody to claim' tlie photograph but no one did. Then he decided it would look fine as a blow-up beside the Supreme Court shot. The careless customer who forgot the picture is presumed to be a Navy man who was more concerned at the time with internal comfort than internal »e- curity. Or maybe h* figured no one could ever dope the picture out. We must admit that to the layman it looks more like an X-ray of somebody'i lungi th»n a prized view of vital targets. The Navy'i current position on th« Club 400 fiasco is a trifle puzzling. While news photographers swarm over Bomze's premise* snapping numerous shots of the mural, Navy officer* firmly refuse to "release it for publication." In another breath, they point out that the picture long a«o was given security clearance. The weary citizen grasping for some thread of sense in all this perhaps ought to conclude •iMoa intUlted for M many w**k» oa Capitol Hill hat at least reached aero** th* Potomac to embrace the Pentagon. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 194* Gay Blades On the high seas the other day, en route to important dollar conferences with U. S. officials, Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin and Chancellor of the Exchequer Sir Stafford Cripps met the press in an extended interview. Their country's crisis is admittedly grave, and it would have been entirely fitting had the conference aooard the Mauritania been held in some somber salon. But in their dark hour the Britiih leaders, in their b«*t chin-up tradition, chos* to strike a cheerful note of hope, They conducted their interview on the .Mauritania's gay iporti deck.

At tills time of cru>U Anglo-American agreement on Clxl- na Is equally Important. for just at there has been no clear-cut American policy to show the Chinese NationlaisU UA- der what conditions they mtght expert American aid, so there ha* been no clear-cut "western" policy to *how the Chinese Communists under what conditions they might expect to get along with the West. The British long ago began to prepare for a Nationalist collapse which they believed to be Inevitable. They decided on tlie UmlU ol the position they could defend by force, and devoted themselves assiduously to building up advance relations with the CommuuisU which would, they hoped, permit them to carry o ntrade rt- gardlesi of Ideological differences. Whether that hope was Illusory remains to be seen. The present truculence of the Heat !» not encouraging, but us their needs multiply there may be a greater disposition to bargain realistically with the West. American policy has been much less consistent, but tends, at the moment to take the most hard-boiled and least expectant view of the Chinese Communists. Ruling out business with them on any appreciable scale, policy makers tauc or letting the Reds stew In their thin economic scale, policy makers talk of letting the Reds stew in their thin economic juice and ot reminding them at every po&sible opportunity UuU Russia Is their self-professed friend. Such a policy would aim at pulling Red China down into chaoa instead of drawing it through economic attraction toward the West. The two approaches are not quite is antithetical as this summary suggests, but they need reconciling. It la nee«mry to tread a tightrope between appeeMtnent and provocation. If ever? possible pressure must be brought against Uie Communists, every possible inducement must be held out to them to turn away from Moecow.

But neither the United States nor Britain, can afford to let H«ng Kong go. With this strategic and moral necessity as a nucleus for further agreement, American and British statesmen should bend every effort to reach a common policy front In regard to China. It will necssarily be a flexible front adaptable to changing circumstance*. If the the Comrnunisu do net attack Hong Kong, then British policy will have justified itself and the way will be 'jpcn for a Joint policy of shrewd bargaining with lh» Reds. If they do attack, the need for prior agreement Is even more obvious. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR SO THEY SAY Th* driver who •top* lor "a drink or two" become, immediately much more reckless »nd danteroui to others than the unsafest car. me- chanlc»lly. on (he road.—Elizabeth A.

Jordan, M.D. Written for NBA Service A rather common mental disease goes under the tongue-twlst- ng names of schizophrenia or dementia praecox. This disorder Is responsible for a great deal of ani- soclal behavior; in many cases persons 111 with this disease require nstitutlonal care. A "splitting" of the personality s tlie most characteristic feature. The afflicted Individual may sliow thoroughly normal behavior In some respects and yet be completely abnormal In others. The most prominent early symp- :om is likely to be a change In :he outlook of the victim. Some- :imes a patient will show an unusual amount of suspicions. Dear friends or relatives may be un- lustly suspected of persecutions. Quite often the first signs consist of disorderliness and lack of clean- Iness. Judgment Is often impaired. The Mtlents frequently complain of hearing or seeing strange objects riiich are not there. Peculiar qual- ties to the thinking arise. The personality Is likely to become gradually altered.' Causes Difficult To Find The cause of schizophrenia is not known. Heredity probably plays some part. It has been stated that more than half of those with schizophrenia have some family iiistory of mental illness. Of the modern treatments available, the various shock methods seem to be the most promising. Shock treatment may have to be repeated a good many times and, of course, must be given under the direction of thoroughly qualified specialists. It does not help in all cases, but it certainly offers hope for many who could not have been helped 30 years ago. • • » TH DOCTOR ANS .. fclatumbs .. By Edwin P.
