We Are in'Mental Civil War 7 That Imperils Democracy Something is happening in this country that no American can look upon without anxiety. Men in many walks are becoming afraid to think freely. This is no wild ular'm. It is the grim truth. Here in * land Where skies were once so favorable for freedom, the atmosphere in many places is cloudy with suspicion, sultry with fear. It oppresses the schoolteacher, the writer, the government clerk, the high policy-maker. Men tremble"to voice opions that may be new or different. They shrink from expressing viewpoints they fee] by some turn of events may prove unpopular or unwise at some future time. Criticism is becoming socially dangerous. Congress has passed no taw unllify- ing the Bill of Rights, M-ith its cluster of strategic political freedoms. On paper, they are intact. Police are nowhere breaking up meetings where men gather to discuss and debate. Yet, in the name of the fight against tyranical communism, in the name of the Americanism that shouts for freedom, the Bill of Rights is being abridged—by ' fear — as surely as a tyrant's decree would obliterate it. So men in many places disdain to be original, to offer alternatives. They choose instead to conform, to play it safe, knowing well that the price of dissent may be social stigma, economic ruin, the slaughter of their character. "Von neorl take no one's word that these things are true. Read carefully the record of congressional hearings in the last 10 months on major American policy. Read the statements'of men who know how honest public officials are thinking today. Ask the teachers and the writers. Misguided patriots are virtually as- reting that'll is treasonable to have held ideas in 1335 or 1915 which today are unpopular or appear unwise. Ignored is the fact that these same ideas have been widely accepted to those earlier, different times. It these charges were not so tragic in consequence, they would be funny. Our jails could not hold nil the lawmakers, businessmen, professors and pundits who have been sadly wrong in judging past events. To many eager defenders of America, there is no distinction between genuine subversion and the accidental identity of a man's sincere views with the Communist Parly line. This is not far from declaring some day that good Americans rnust be for cancer because the Kremlin is against it. Under this dull, leaden ceiling of conformity, all shadings of attitudes, all degrees of sympathy for a cause, are lost in a haze. Only black and wliiin stand,/ out, "You are either with us or against BLYTHEVILLE (ARK,) COURIER NEWS us," Beems to be the motto. Thus, as one sharp observer put It, we are in a slate of mental cis'il war. It is a conflict precipitated by men who ace no room for honest difference of opinion, for departure from the current popular view, for mistakes—great or small- made in the sincere performance of duty. They see only treason, subversion and moral guilt. Picture then the dilemma of the 1051. American trying to chart a sensible course in the realm of ideas. In this complex age, plagued by countless baffling problems which suggest many solutions, what can a man safely advocate? What can lie urge today that will certainly be good for tomorrow? No matter how wise his counsel seems now, he may stil! be adjudged a subversive in some future moment. That is the painful outlook which confronts him. Because that is his prospect, democracy stands in peril in America. For democracy is rooted in the right to make intelligent, monil choices among alternatives. There is no freedom in the right . merely to conform. As (he raw stuff of his decisions—the decisions that govern his country— the Aniericiin must see before him a wide array of dffering policies and programs and ideas. Without them, what is there to choose? And without choice, where is his. freedom? To discourage the presenting of alternatives is therefore clearly to impair freedom. Therein lies our overriding clanger today. * * * This discussion of a crisis In democracy will be continued tomorrow. TUESDAY, OCTOBER W, 1981 Views of Others OPS More Cheerful Gloomy during the summer over Ihe chance of holding prices, Mike DiSallc's stabilization office now appears to have acquired new confidence. It is planning to issue a new series of orders intended to shave present ceilings on some manufactured goods prices and designed to make It difficult for the producers of somewhat scarcer goods to obtain o boost In ceilings. •Effect of the large Inventories In civilian consumer goods mny have had most to do with th» OPS change of attitude. Many manufacturers hav« cut production schedules and merchant* are working off some ot their stocks. The third-quarter reports show no general gain in stocks on hand. Some trade experts are saying that the excess inventories of some types of soft goods won't be worked off until spring.'- ' This respite from pressure apparently has given Ihe OPS lime lo gel its price-control program In' order. Before the pressure is renewed by nny wide- open break Iri the wage line thla winter, it should have Its various types of price controls fitted to all trade and Industry. The dollars and cents ceilings are expected largely to replace the flat price freeze In retail establishments, but in various industries the price freeze as ot a certain date and the modified freeze (subject lo adjustments) will be widely used. f Effect of the upward pressure growing out of tile aagc situation is not pronounced at the moment. A good deal of time will be taken up with negotiations before the raises are granted in the big industries like steel and coal, anrt they will not bother the price control office until some time later. Mr. DlSalle's problem seems to have been further eased by the tendency toward more saving among the people, and by the new increase in taxes. Temporarily, at least. Jhe higher taxes will tend lo reduce consumer spending. Government borrowing will have an inflationary effect, but th»re is a feeling that with the administration committed to pay-as-wc-co defense it may try to hold down the size of the deficit. With the world tension somewhat important Communist adventure in the winter months, the President probably knows he won't be able to pet another tax Increase from Congress in the near future. Shortages in many lines of metal goods will undoubtedly begin to appear early next year, but the OPS will be all set for lhat and the public Is probably resigned to It. On the whole, the OPS seems to have some grounds for a cheerful Interlude. —NEW ORLEANS TIMES-PICAYUNE SO THEY SAY We do not ask the Western powers tin the ca;e of Palestine i to undo all the evil they have drine. . , . \ve ask them nnly to give evidence of neutrality— military, economic and political neu- lra '.">' ..... not take sine; *ith us against Israel - . . r."r against us.— HaJ el-Hussclni.

It looked at first us though the right play was to cash the ace of trumps; In the hope of dropping the king. It the king of clubs failed to drop. Souih could fall back on the spade finesse or perhaps try some sort of end play. Then Mrs. Heinrich saw a better plan and proceeded to adopt it. She took two top heart tricks, discarding » spade from dummy, ruffed a heart in dummy, and then cashed the top diamonds. This eliminated the red suits from the South hand 'and also from the dummy. At this_ point Mrs. Heinrich led the jack of clubs from her hand and let it ride for a finesse. If East could win the trick, he would be unable to make a safe return. A spade pation often accompanied by discomfort in the aMomen and growl- Ing sounds are the common signs of this widespread ailment. Most ol those who have a spastic colon think that they are- constipated because after a period of fairly loose movements, there may be a delay of a day or more before another occurs. This Idea Is wrong. The wnste material is passing through the bowels too fast rather than too slowly. The wave-like motions of the intestines which carry the waste matter downward occur too often and produce discomfort. When there is nothing remaining in the bowel there can, of course, be no bowel movement no matter how the wavelike motions occur. People who arc nervous, thin, and easily upset are especially likely to become aftlicted, The nervous system scncis unconscious messages to the bowel which causes the intestinal waves to come more frequently. This, of course, makes the symptoms of a spastic colon worse. Nearly everyone who has It, therefore notices that the symptoms are worse when they are angry, anxious or annoyed. Some foods, particularly raw fruits ant] vegetables, irritate the walls of the bowel and stimulate the intestines to Increased peristaltic waves Cathartics do the same thing only The Diet Important strain of "modern living s would give South a 'free' ft-1 J he . re f°«- "a* nn unfavorable ef- ; and either red suit would al- " ct : r , he * et| ',°°' '? of ccurse inv WEST NORTH A A54 + 105 + AQ98843 EAST,- *J8732 + None SOUTH (D) V J 1097 • Q96< *K2 VAQi * AK * J1075 North-South vul. .ort Wcrt North F,u« > Pass 6* Pass iss Pass Opening lead— t ) low South to ru!f while 'dummy discarded another low spade. . As it happened, ot course, the trump finesse succeeded, so the slam contract was easily made. The point was. however, that there was no nerd to zuess about the trumps. If West had both trumps the finesse wmiM succeed; and If East had the king of trumps he was sure to be end-played.
