He will be the millionth American traffic fatality. The widening and resurfacing of Highway 18, between Blytheville and Manila, creates an added highway hazard over a road whose use is now greatly increased due to traffic of the cotton harvest. Construction work on this part of Highway 18 has necessitated stretches of one-way traffic, one side of the rond being blocked in places by traffic barriers. Some of these barriers have been marked by flares; some are to be found burning after dark, some are not. Tuesday and Wednesday nights, about seven barricades were hit and destroyed -by mptorists. None was marked by lighted flares. Wednesday night, thirty-two barricades were counted on the highway between Dell and Manila. Only 12 flares were burning. This is less than one flare for every two barriers. As the barriers have no reflectors or reflecting paint to denote their presence by automobile headlights, the motorist has little chance to avoid hitting • them. The drinking driver hasn't a chance. He smacks "cm Jiard. , Only 12 light flares is a poor average for 32 barriers on a hazardous highway. Many of the barriers do not have flares near them. At others, they have gone out or have not been refilled. This negligence should be stopped. Mississippi County does not want the "distinction" of having Mr. Million killed on its highways. Defense Production Lag On Oct. 6 last the CIO committee on economic policy called on mobilisation director Wilson to develop a better "overall production plan" in order to speed up defense production. Already that program, it charted, was (ailing "dangerous behind because of lack of planning . . . mistakes." Delays In hitting production targets, continued the committee, represents "a failure to meet our obligations In a critical period of world history. A substantial weakening of the mobilization elforl would underml'ne our own strength and that ol the free world." The lag In defense production Is deplored by all patriotic Americans. It may be due. In part to the "lack o( planning" charged by Ihe CIO committee. "Failures and mistakes" naturally cause slowdowns here and there. But strikes in key Industries also can ob.stnict the best overall production plan. The committee did not mention that. Oil Oct. 12, the *nge stabilisation buard-act- ing, It was explained, at the President's request —called on 75000 o'lO strikers In 10 plants to return to work Immediately, The defense department and other government production agencies phisscd that strike as "one of the most senou.s I* hit the mobilization effort." Last Monday n wildcat stilke of longshoremen along New York's waterfront stopped work on 15 piers and idled 14 ships scheduled for early clearance. "Most seriously nffcctctl." said the New York Times, "was the Army port of embarkation In Brooklyn, where .three Navy transports and two cargo ships were being loaded wllh vital cargo.' Strikes in key industries can slow down production an dmobillzatlon more effectively than faulty planning. The great labor organizations should recognize arid meet their own obligations to their country's safety and that of the free world In this "critical period of world history." —NEW ORLEANS TIMES-PICAYUNE Striking Our Ports Is Aid to Enemy If the United States were engaged In full- scale war, a prime objective of any enemy would be to strangle the ports of this country. Submarine warfare by Germany was directed toward that end In both World Wars I and II. It came dangerously close to accomplishing its mission. Only when the submarine menace came under control were we assured of ultimate victory. No one doubts that in another such war our chief port cities would be the object of enemy air attack, perhaps with 'atomic bombs. The enemy'i object would be to stop shipments of military supplies and of the commerce on which our economy rests. Today we are engaged In a struggle no less critical because the actual shooting is confined to a few limited fronts. Our liberties and even our lives ar« i»t stake. In such a time IheJnovement of traffic through our ports Is ns vital as-tt would be during an all- out war. New York Is our largest port. Today its docks are as effectively paralyzed us they would be If an atomic bomb hp.d struck, The nation's most Important port Is closed by a strike. Those who [osier that strike arc enemies of their country. Sorre way must be found—and quickly—to control them and to permit loyal workmen to resume the shipment o[ military and civilian goods. Any other course' Is surrender. ATLANTA JOURNAL SO THEY SAY We are always hearing a clamor for a strong foreign policy. People who use lhat pharse live In the past.

M.D. Written for NKA Service "My mother," writes Mrs. R. E. L., "has just been told that she has Addkon's Disease. She is being given medicine now, but If it isn't satisfactory, she will receive shots. I would appreciate it if you would give some information on this disease." Addison's Disease is fortunately a rather rare disorder. It received its name from a famous English Physician. Thomas Acklison, who first discovered the condition In 1855. and It lias been a subject of great interest and concern to physicians ever since. The disease arises from small 'eter Ed son's Washington Column — Ike Spumed Role of 'Czar' But Preaches Gospel of Unification PAR'S (NBA) — A proposal to make U. 3. Gen. Dwlght D. Eisenhower virtual "czar" of western European rearmament was recently put .0 him by an American emissary who has the fullest confidence and backing of President Truman. The idea was to give Elsenhower control over not only gressive warfare — only defensive; whether the measure is In steel warfare against possible Communist ] capacity or general levels of deuca- aggresslon—they believe him Impltc- lion. Why, then, the concern? Illy. And a great feeling of relief Is According to the Elsenhower phil- apparent. It builds up conlldence osophy. th* Communists have unity Ui the U. S. leadership, spurring the Europeans to greater effort. In spile of this great fervor build- Ing up behind Elsenhower, the General was smart enough not to put his head in the noose offered to the a r m I e » of j n i m . to head up western European western Europe, which he now has, but also control over European defense production. iThe latter would mean that this .PelerEdion "czar" would also have lo direct the economy of the nine free countries of Europe, to coordinate their rearmament effort. This master plan was neatly con- defense production ai well as military defense. To have accepted It would have put full responsibility for Its success or failure on his shoulders. So he politely ducked. while the free world has none.

They belong to the glands of internal secretion. They contain several kinds of cells which form hormones which flow into the blood. A chemically prepared substance called epinephrine or adrenalin hns My actions of part of the adrenal gland. The treatment. 01 this disease, which was formerly almost invariably fatal, has been greatly improved. Complete rest in bed and protection from chilling and muscular exertion is necessary. Those who have mild cases do well when they are given an excessive amount of ordinary salt—sodium chloride— at the same time that potassium, another chemical, is kept low. Addison described the characteristic symptoms as anemia, languor, or general weakness, feeble beat of the heart-, irritability of the stomach, and a peculiar brownish change in the color of the skin. General weakness is particularly characteristic and the deep yellowish-brown color of the skin, which is due to deposits of pigment, is also velts to contend with, I grew to voting age under the delusion lhat there were bjit 52 weeks in any given year. BUT APPARENTLY I reckoned without progressive education, the advertising industry and a number of philanthropic organizations. 1 have been informed by experienced calendar-watchers—similar to clock- watchers, but not in quite such i hurry—that there actually are some 250 "weeks" every year. ' These special weeks, observed In connection with everything from bint-watching movements to promotion of iouin-rubber foundation garments, have something in common. • All. it appears, receive casual—if any—mention In the press and then are ignored until they quietly fade away. This in itself is, in the majority of cases, a public service rendered by editors with roomy wastebaskeis. I HAVE BEEN doing my bit for fit . iMimi-nity, believe me. It keeps me M and a staff of janitors pretty busy but we manage to keep apace of these events. Some "weeks" have worthy backgrounds. But the majority are born of the labor pains that jar only a press agent's mind. In order to obtain even th« briefest mention in the nation's press, it Is absolutely required that a curvaceous young lady attired In th« current minimum in beach wear be posed in juxtaposition with the product being boomed. Otherwise, you might as well be trying to whip up popular enthusiasm in a revival of the celluloid collar.
