New Yorkers Can't Lose In Lehman-Dulles Race The whole nation ; can share with New York state its satisfaction at v the • caliber of the two men certain to be the irjajor party nominees this fall for the Senate seat once held by Robert F. JVagn'er. Not often does any state have a ch»nc« to choose between two such distinguished prospects as Herbert H. Lehman, the likely Democratic choice, and John Foster Dulles, the probable Republican selection. Dulles, of course, is now •erving in the Senate, having been ap- ; pointed to &e Wagner vacancy until »n eleiction could be held. Lehman has a long career of fine public service as governor of New York and international relief administrator. He is acknowledged as one of the most high-minded standard bearers the Democratic Party has had in several decades. Senator Dulles is generally recognized as one of the two or three principal spokesmen for the Republicans in foreign affairs. Only Senator Vandenberg of Michigan has greater prestige. Dulles has participatd in several important international conferences and is a valued adviser on the vital issues of peace. In terms of character and ability, the citizens of New York—and the country too—will not lose no matter which man is elected for the unexpired two years of Wagner's term. Because the general outlook of the two candidates on foreign affairs is similar, New York voters may make their selection on the basis on their domestic views. Here Dulles is the more conservative. But of greater interest than who wins in November is the fact that Lehman and Dulles could be persuaded to wake the race. Lehman is 71 years old and has a perfect right to tell his supporters that he has earned a rest. After long consideration, lie consented to run because of appeals that hi? party needed a man of his stature. The decision unquestionably represents a sacrifice on Lehman's part, even though he is probably human enough to want the honor of being a senator. As for Dulles, he accepted temporary appointment from Gov. Thomas E. Dewey on the understanding that he would not be a candidate in the fail election. Since going to Washington, however, he has been subjected to heavy pressure to make the race. No little amount has come from Vandenberg himself, who plans to retire and would like to see Dulles assume foreign affairs leadership for the GOP Senater forces. In d«ciding to run, Dulles said something that should be read carefully by the many men of high ability who disdain to enter the political arena for fear of compromising their principles or soiling their spotless reputations: "I would greatly prefer that another carry the responsibility (ot. becoming a candidate). However, 1 do not see how our free society can survive if tho»« who have deep convictions reject the opportunity to carry those convictions into public life. Therefore ... I would gladly accept and resiwnd to the best of my ability." "If some of our abler citizeia would lake those words to heart, there might be more Senate races in many more states like that coming up between Lehman and Dulles. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS VIEWS OF OTHERS Making Monetary Ends Meet Though politics be an art. and economics (by comparison) be a science, yet international 11- nance Is for most of us pure tiiauic. It h into this esoteric realm that efforts to deal with the world dollar shortage now move. "Devaluation" is the password to current monetary meetings. It means, to make money worth less—ai distinct from making It worthless. To come to cfses, there's the British pound, chief present target ot tlie devalucrs. The pound has a price in dollars l>y virtue of international agreement. The custodian ol tliat figure (11, was changed Sunday from J4.03 to j'J.SU.) is the International Monetary Fund, a specialized agency of the United Nations, it Is argued that the pound is not really worth the price, and the report just issued at the annual meeting ol the world,-monetary fund is interpreted as hinting at devaluation of the pound. The simple approach to the question is by the dollar route. We can think or the pound as being devalued In terms of dollars. Currencies ordinarily get their values from other factors snan their relations to any one currency. Another value for money is still found hi gold. By that standard even the dollar can be called overvalued. II America would permit a free market for gold, the metal would probably soar nigh above Ihe present $35 an ounce, and the dollar would also find Itself In line for devaluation This recalls the classical function of gold, now limited by governmental controls and management of currencies. Gold was once a central criterion for all currencies. Their' adjustment and radjustment In terms of gold maintained an automatic system for their readjustment in terms ot each other. This system was motivated by that "natural' 'economic cause, the search for profits. By buying and selling gold and shipping gold to various countries one could male money. And many did. And their doing It readjusted currency relations which n»d been upsel^as the British- American has been—by lopsided trade. But there are yet other ways to look at the currency problem, one should be mentioned now. Currency ought to be considered (in this era ol currency management, at any rate) in terms ol the prices of goods, clothing, shelters, etc., wnich exist In the various nations, otherwise policies which might be adopted for rectifying an imnal- anced money situation could foster privilege and hardship in nations where controls are not well- enforced. For example, the British pound is a better symbol of "fair shares" of the war burden among all classes of people: than Is ttte Italian lira, or the French franc. Would one wish to penalize the British for trying to-'equalize the burden on the population? And would one reward some other nations for letting hardship take the hindmost in a race to postwar normalcy through black markets and whatever olher economic back alleys presented themselves? The devalued pound could help Britain regain dwindling American market*, it could cut British otlig.tions to the countries of th. sterling area which no w lake hundreds of millions of dollars a year In British products as payment against war-created balances. But It .Iso would Impose a new degree of austerity on the British people. There effects can be cushioned by American action and by supervision by the monetary tuna over a program for general revaluation of world currencies. The approach cannot be merely mecti- anistic. Indeed the interplay ot economics and politics virtually guarantees that it will not be. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR 50 THEY SAY Are you ready to send your boys to Indochina al ,d Siam?

PETER EDSOHS Washington News Notebook Se/ecf/Ve Service Headquarters Is Quiet Spot But Army Men Happy (Peter Ertson Is on vacation.) WASHINGTON (NBA) — Just about the quietest federal office in the city is National Headquarters for Selective Service, it occupies the five floors of a small office building on a quiet side street a few blocks Irom the White House. The most excitement around the place Is when groups of noisy kids walk past from the neighboring Y.M.C.A. gym claMes. The 150 Army officers, civilian officials and clerks 'who are left to keep the establishment going appear to be busy doing something, -but they all have the emptiest "in" baskets in town. There's enough space for even the third-level officials to have outer and Inner offices. The "Visiting Officers Registration Book" shows a signature or some captain in from the boondocks early last month. Probably for a gag, some corixjral had signed it a couple of weeks ago. J It's understandable why draft director Maj.-Gen. Lewis B. Kersitey, a gregarious man who thrives on excitement, likes to spent! as much time as possible out ol town, traveling and making speeches. Any comparison between the morgue-like present selective service headquarlers and the mad-house where the wartime draft, was directed Li impossible. And that is just the way the Army wants it. In the opinion of most of the top generals the present draft law which went into effect June 24, 1948 and which is due to expire June 23. 1MO has served its purpose beautifully. Some even think that it has turned out better for the Army in the long run thiin If they had gotten Universal Military Training along with It. Pleased With Rrsults They are most pleased with the result of the law for three reasons. First, it has acted as just the right kind of a stick to get desirable youngsters in uniform without actually drafting them and without costly recruiting programs. Secondly, it has created the machinery which puts on ready tap all of the nation's eligible young men who would have to be called up In an emergency. It Ls estimated that it would take only 6O days to get lull nianjxnver mobilization under \vay starting with the present existing tirnft organisation. The third and most significant result of the act, the generals bc- licvc, is that it has been so completely inoffensive to the American jmblic. For this reason, they think. Congress will be willing to renew the !aw next year' and probably for a long time. At least until alter the I cold war ends, they hope, a peacetime draft law on the books will become generally accepted as necessary, Lt.-Gen. Edward H. Brooks, the Army's director of personnel and administration says, "in troubled times like these a draft law is absolutely essential for quick mobilization and the nation's safety." This is the opinion of most defense of- I ficials. Only the Army has been concerned with the'draft so far because it was the only branch of the service that was short of men after the war. But it possible that the Navy and Air Force might find it a handy law to have around. IN HOLLYWOOD By Erjklne Johnson NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD _<NEA)— Greta Garbo's comeback film.

Last year it coot $24,000.000. President Truman asked for $16.COO,OOo for It tliis year but Congrefs only gve him WOOO- 000. Draft officials admit that that will probably be enough for the Job. Only 30,000 men were put in uniform before inductions were found to be unnecessary, although It was first planned to take In 200,000 That means that the first year it cost Uncle Sam MOO per man to get the Army up to strength. Elaborate recruiting drives arc less costly than that, but there are other factors involved. The bulk of-the money went into reopening offices all over the country, making and printing new forms and recruiting new halp plus the big job of setting up the basic files. General Hershey explains that even today's no-draft draft has to go through all of the motions right up to the point of induction. All men reaching the age ol 18 have to be sent questionnaires. They have to be classified and each time a man's status changes with age, marriage, number of children and job, his file has to be kept up to date! About the only major" difference tt the lack of a need for the elaborate appeals procedure. With nobody being taken in, men aren't bothering tn appeal the first classification Which a local board gives them.

DOCTOR SAYS By Edwin P. Jordan, M.D. Written for NEA Service The most common first sign of piles or hemorrhoids is bleeding. Generally there Is no severe pain, though Itching is ferqucnl. If such warning signals are Ignored, the blcedinu is likely not only to keep on but will get worse. Sometimes hemorrhoids develop suddenly after some strain, but more often they set in gradually. Hemorrhoids are clusters of enlarged veins at or around the outlet of the rectum. They may be internal or external, chronic con- sltpatlon, a long continued cough, childbirth, and muscular strain from work are examples of what will tend to slow down itie flow of blood thro-gh the hemorrholdal veins and favor their enlargement in the form of piles or hemorrhoids. The treatment of piles Includes avoidance of those causes which tend to make them worse, namely, •inch things as chronic constipation, or unnecessary muscular strain, once hemorrhoids have developed, however, this is not enough to make the veins return to their natural state. Other things have to be done. Survery Often Hied When the veins are entirely Internal and do. not protrude, they can sometimes be treated by injection of a chemical. This treatment, however, is not favored to any gieat extent and has some drawbacks. More often whether the enlarged veins are internal, external, or both, the best treatment is by surgery. Then enlarge veins are cut out. Hemorrhoids are extremely common. Just why this should be so is not known. Perhaps it has something to do with our upright posture or the sedentary life which so many people lead today and which favors stagnation of the blood. * • • GUESTION: What Is the cause and remedy for burning feet?

This new government was Inaugurated September 16 by Britain as military occupation authority— apparently pursuing a course somewhat similar to that of the Western powers in the matter of the German government at Bonn. The Cyrenaica regime Is headed by Emir Sayid Mohammed Idrls El SenusEj (he princely personage who long has been both religious and temporal leader of, his people. The jaenussl, as he generally is called has been given direction of Internal affairs, while Britain retains full control of defense and all extern. 1 matters. There Is a disposition in some U. N. quarters to criticize Britain for making such a positive move in advance of assembly consideration. The decision about Cyrens and the other Italian colonies,'™ the way. is the only legislative action which the assembly* 1 tt)U3 tar has been authorized to make Power to decide this Important Issue was conferred by the Italian peace treaty. Of course, despite any aren't "nt over the timing of the event, it long has been expected that Cyr- enacia (Mussolini's prize colonial development) would be turned over to the Senussl, who are a Moslem sect of Arabs. Britain promised them during the war that they never again would be returned to Italian rule, Moreover It was generally believed tha* the Grand Sen- ussi would be ruler. Britain's chief interest in Cyr- enacia—and it is shared by America —Is that this ex-colony Is an important military base, dotnmrting the main shipping route through the Mediterranean. The harbor of Tobrtik—of evil war memories and the big Island of Crete to the north, form a saddle right across the Mediterranean life-line from the Strait of Gibraltar to the Suez Canal. Back in 1942, when Montgomery had just driven Marshal Rommel out of Cyrenaica, I spent some time In that area and later waa given the opportunity of meeting the Grand Senussi In Cairo. Th» prince had raised Arab troops during the early part of the war to fight the Italians, but at the time of my visit he v.:ts living in closeita guarded seclusion In the Egyptlajr capital. I was guided lo him by two of his trusted lieutenants and had a long talk with him about hU hopes. He certainly expected that Cyrenaica would be returned to his people and .while he expressed no personal ambitions, I had no doubt that he believed he would be their The 61-year-old prince Is all that the most romantic could wish an Arab shlek to be. He Is tall, slim and handsome, with the customer beard and mustache. He reputedly is rich. Moreover he is $ fine horseman, a fierce fighter and an inspiring leader. But, he is far more than that, for he is a histhiv cultured man whose life has been devoted to his people. That name ' Senussi." by Ihe way, isn't the designation of a race or tribe. It properly refers to the religious sect or its followers. You and I could be Senussl if we adopted that faith—an order which subscribes to the simplicity of early Mohammedanism. The prince is a grandson of the founder of this Senussf sect. There must be great rejotcin-r in Cryenaica at this promise ^t independence. These simple folfcT who had tilled the soil on the coast since the d.iys when C!eop»tr» used to spend holidays there, were brutally ended from their farms by Mussolini who proceeded to settle Italian colonists on the land. Many of the Senussi died of terrible privation in the dessert. The survivors swarmed back to their farms, however, while the tracks of Rommel's retreat still were fresh. The Italian colonists fled with the german troops, and I found Senussi farmers again working their beloved soil' within sight of the huge signs "II Duce," which were painted across the front of all colonial /arm houses.
