And g .we're impatient when we don't get them. jj' Yet, ^admirable as his approach us- 5 ually is, ,there are times and places when is really almost self-defeating. It can lead to concentration on'immediate,, short- run gains which not only fall short of the objective but may actually delay our reaching it. The medical research field is an. example. Today the scentists big guns are trained on cancer, heart disease and po- pio, the most menacing and most puzzling ravagers of human health. To perform the experiments that will lead to cures and preventive measures, the researchers obviously need many millions of dollars. A lot of that money is being made available to science. But specialists in the great university research centers often complain that too much of it is earmarked specifically for cure-seeking projects. It's almost as if contributions were labeled, "for finding a cancer cure by 3950." Scientists point out, however, that the real cure for these dread diseases may lie in basic secrets of nature not yet unlocked. Projects developed Jo applying already known medcal facts are no help in unearthing them. They will only be learned through pure research —free swinging experimentation in the elemental processes of nature with no special object except to advance the frontiers of knowledge. Medical researchers don't get enough of this kind of money. And if they don't get more gifts without strings, the real solutions we all desire may be much longer in coming than we imagine. This urge to get results fast could be curbed a bit without hurting our record for energetic performance. In this we're all a little Ike the business man who has a reputation for working hard and is afraid to slow down. Our personal ,-ind national ego are involved. \Ve think we have to achieve the millennium in our own lifetimes. But after all we're only part of the stream of history. It's neither necessary nor possible that we shall stamp "solved" on every problem that now confronts us. Our successors will be perfectly cap- * able of picking up where we leave off. More funds for pure medical research would be good evidence that we were beginning to take a more reasoned view of the future. ?(Spread the Laurels Around \-i \ tj i Mr. Truman says some parts of the ?i 1 press would argue that the country *.*+ would be well off today even if a moron had «at in th« White House. We don't • think any fair-minded men would argue thus. During the President's five-year tenure the nation has enjoyed unprecedented domestic prosperity. It has also helped to rebuild many war-ravaged foreign countries and has led the free world in standing off the threat of spreading communism. At the same time, there are a great many unsolved problems piling up. The Far.East is in bad shape and we must shoulder part of the blame. Farm surpluses are beginning to haunt us, and numerous other strains are developing on the home front. But on balance it can honestly be said that our situation is basically good. Credit for this belongs lo many people —statesmen, industrialists, ordinary cit- izons; And it most certainly belongs partly at the President's door. For he has, after all, been the top directing head of the country during this trying period. Still, Mr. Truman's language at his recent press conference suggests he's a trifle loo cocky about the who] e thing. Somewhat more humility would have been becoming in the light of the tremendous contributions made by so many to our present well-being. If we could evesdrop outside the President's shower these days, most likely the strains of "I'm Just Wild About Harry" would come floating our way. It was a little nicer when the "Missouri Waltz," modestly hummed, was the order of the day. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, APRIL 25, 1950 once over lightly— A. A. Fredrlcljon Spring Is a lovely season and sll that but If someone wants my equity In It, I'll j wap ' em sight, unseen for a six-months-long Arctic winter. From-, tils long range point of view, Spring has its points, I guess.. (You'll note I'm of the school that prefers'\he capital S; otherwise, the word means nothing to me except a coiled piece of wire.) Spring is a fine thing for them as scratch out a living by constructing sentence! that rhyme. Probably no other subject has strained through poetic license as often as this one. Poets carve it up and serve it back to us in iambic pentameter, hectic diameter and frantic perimeter. Lyrftlsls who cat regularly, couldn't find a garret In-a: one-story house and call themselves advertising copy writers go nuls over this season. Spring ha? prime commercial value. It Is the .time to change your oil; the oil In your car, that Is. The ladies should switch from winter weight perfume to u lighter grade of bait. According to the dress designers, they also should make dust rags of last Spring's raiment and put tile old man In hock for a new set of durls. For the lesser creature called mun, it Is the season to put the comfortable felt fedora within easy reach of the moths and prepare to spend the next few months undei a headdress of straw which, after the first hefty shower, leaves him looking like a well-dressed beachcomber. But—Spring is first and foremost Hie embodiment of an eternal conflict that has been through the ages and forever more shall remain as Ir- rcconcilible as John L. Lewis and the Taft-Hartle? Act. It Is the time of Spring cleaning and (versus Is a better word) Spring—yawn!—fever. Like—if you'll pahdon please the expression- sex, both rear their ugly profiles simultaneously. Apparently born under the sign of the vernal equinox. I suffer from an early-bearing case ol Spring fever that is acute, chronic and congenital. At the first sign ol a balmy day, my blood coagulates and refuses to sustain my limbs and my brain turns to mush. I am given over to staring into space and answering with incoherent yawns when addressed. The very thought of work nauseates me. For some reason, however, although dirt Is no dirtier In Winter than In Spring, it becomes necessary to turn one's abode upside down so it can b= S er.e over !!'.:= ,- ap W,, g de-louseti or a sheep being dipped. Spring cleaning also has a sneaky way of creeping beyond the confines of four walls. Included in the annual chore is this putlering- around-the-yard business.

Written for NEA Service Fatigue, sore feet, pain in the call muscles, and other distressing conditions higher u may be merely symptoms of broken or breaking arches In the feet, poor posture 111 filling shoes, overweight, lack of exercise, too long standing on hard surfaces and a host of other things can produce what Is universally calltc; Hat feet. Flat feet cause a great deal of ,,.un in the feet themselves and can produce some difficulties higher up in the weight-bearing Joints or muscles. Sometimes flat feet, which are not themselves very painful may explain a certain amount of general fatigue. Most people think of flat foot as a simple breaking down of the arch lying between the base of the big toe and the heel. This b one kind of flat foot. But there Is another arch, at the ball of the foot which also can be broken down and cause a good deal of difficulty Often the first sign of trouble in this second arch is the formation of a callous which maj be tender or painful. Flat feet may result f-om some birth defect, from an, injury or paralysis. Sometimes shose are wron which do not fit and hence make the looi more susceptible to breakdown of the arches. At times the body weight is just more than the arches can stand. Flat feet can come on suddenly and with good deal of pain. The arches can break down gradually also, and with little or no direct pain. In either case, something should be done as normal arches are important lor comfortable feet especially for those" whose occupations require a great deal of stand- Ing or walking. Fallen arches can usually be cured by proper treatment exiept perhaps In those who ire -very old or In whom the condition haj existed for too many years. The arches usually cannot ,be built up to their normal position at once, because they have collapsed too far. This has to be done gradually with the help of f;lt pads In the shoes which can be added layer on layer or-some similar method. Of course, the shose worn during this period have to be very carefully chosen and sometimes bars or other devices. are placed on the outside of the shoe Itself. Together with the use of puds, shoes and bars, many people who have broken arches need to he instructed in the proper way to walk so that the trouble Is less likely to come back. Exercise such as walking around the floor oh the outside ergcs of the feet, grasping the edge of the carpet with the toes, arid Jmilar activities are often useful In restoring strength to the muscles and ligaments which are supposed to hold the arches In normal place. The use of contrast foot baths, that is. alternately immersing the feeb in hot and cold water, frequently relieves the discomfort and stimulates the circulation, thus speeding the recovery. IS Years Today • JACOBY ON BRIDGE n.v Oswald .larnhy Wrillcn for NEA Service Signal Through Strategic Discard One of the advantages of having a Rood partner is that yon can rely on him. Even when he is merely playing small cards he Is on the alert to give you vital Information West led the four of spades, East played the ten. nnrt South played low. East continued with llin Jack • the whole diamond suit would run against him. East also nald careful attention to the fact that his pariner had played the deuce ot diamonds on this trick. Having arrived in dummy with the king of diamonds, declarer led a club and finessed his jack West won with the queer, and led nn- • other spade, knocking out South's ! QCC. At this point Smith led his re, maining diamond and played the nine from dummy. East had to decide whether to take his ace of dia monds or hold off once more HP would want to take the ace at once if he could be sure Hut South had no more diamonds; but lie would want to refuse the Irick if South had another diamond left. In his It is-easy to see that East would nave nothing better than a guess if his partner happened to be a i )0 "r player. A weak West would nla'v I the deuce first and thon the six of I diamonds whether or not he also held the seven of diamonds. In this situation, the chances arc that Easl would guess wrong. He would refuse the trick to make sure of shut ting out the rest of dummy's diamonds. There Is , no guess, however l[ West Is the sort of player that East can trust. West would play his lowest card with exactly three diamonds 'or a singleton): "but hc would piny a higher card with two or four diamonds^This sort of signal Is always used when dummy has a long suit without cntrics(win- ning cards) In side suits. When the hand was actually played. East knew that his partner's deuce of diamonds showed three cards In the suit. It was then easy lo count the sv" ard take the second diamond trick. That limited South lo eight tricks. Declarer would have made nine tricks if East had refused the second diamond. C. A.

Mr, and Mrs. Ollie Foster have as their guest Mrs. Foster's mother, By DeWKt MacKenzle AP Foreign Affairs Analyst Moscow's war of nerves against the western world Is being speeded up as part of a fresh phase of the lied revolution for the spread of Communism. This is in considerable degree a. psychological assault which is coming from numerous direction^ tn make It confusing, it Is nlmec»,';r>t only at the governments but at the general publics of the democracies. The purpose Is to create nervousness, weariness and anxiety among the various populations. The constant hammering with Incidents and belligerent statements, which savor of war, is calculated to break down morale. N'ot a Flash This war of nerves isn't just » flash In the pan. it is a studied part of Moscow's strategy, and it accounts for many of the otherwise inexplicable actions of the Soviet such as the perpetual disruption of United Nations activities by the u se of the everlasting "Nyet" (No). Among the latest, developments In this Red onslaught was the shooting down of the American plane by a Soviet warplarie over the Baltic with the loss of ten U. S. airmen. As was cxpeclcd, Moscow has flatly and brusquely rejected Washington's protest that Ihe American plane was unarmed, and has refused to pay compensation for the loss of life—an attitude which has angered members of the U. S. Congress. New Charges Made Hot on the heels of this dangerous incident Moscow has charged the United states, Britain and France with "grossly violating" the I provisions of the Italian peace treaty which provided [hat Trieste and surrounding 'area be made a free territory. The Soviet allegcsi'<iiat Britain and America are maijcjiin- mg » naval base In the poK of Trieste—a charge which is denied The United States and Britain claim' they are within their rights In keeping troops In Trieste until the free territory is established. These Soviet demands are being packed by Italinn Communists. British diplomats say the Russians may want to prevent any agreement be, wee " Ita 'y and Yugoslavia over the Trieste territory In which both are so vitally interested. As though these moves by Moscow weren't enough, the satellites are dutifully playing their part In the war o f nerves against the west The latest development is In Czechoslovakia, once the saunch friend of America who played such a great part in the creation of the republic at the end of World War I. Mbnriea Closed The Moscow controlled Red government in Prague has ordered the closing of the libraries of the U S Information Service in Czechoslovakia, and the shutting of the American consulate In the city oHfea- tislava. Of course such an awiilt can't be passed unanswered, and Washington has "ordered Czechoslovakia, to close Its consulate In Chicago by May 1. So runs the story of many Incidents, all of which are calculated to worry the westery nations and their publics. And of course while Moscow Is thus harrassing the democracies, it also Is impressing on it» satellites the might and daring of Russia. .This war of nerves may, or may not, be depressed to a lot of folk However, the wise man will note this very Important fact: Such tactics are likely to hav» the reaction in the long run of getting folks so fed up that they are ready to fight to secure relief. Apropos of this, Secretary of State Acheson says he believes the world is In a serious situation because of recent moves by Russia but that he, does not see it moving Into any armed conflict. I believe the consensus of close observers agrees that war in the near future Isn't likely. The name of Viet Nam. part of Indochina, means "distant south." of Hollywood, Calif: Mrs. J. E..
