How You Can Help Others While Helping Yourself . . . Every now find then, we nil need H Eentle prodding from Uie preacher, the boss or the wife. Tlie purpose of HUH editorinl is to negotiate two "prods" with one stroke of the typewriter. First, the Red Cross bloodmobitc is paying a return visit nnri, phony truce . talks notwithstanding, blood is still a scarce item Ijoth in the United States mut overseas. As of late last week, the Red Cross chapter here reported that the Chickn- sawha chapter is still some 95 donors ehort of tha 200-donor quota which has heen set for Tuesday's visit. You may have noticed that the quota was raised from the time the bloodmobile visited here last. That's one indication of the need. We are only about half-way on the quota. Pick up your telephone, dial <M81 and teil them you'll be happy to help your fellow countrymen who are doing so much to help you. Secondly—-And it fits in pretty well \vith this subject of national defense— be sure you won't be crippled with tuberculosis. Surest way [o do thai is lo visit Die mobile X-ray unit when it cunies to Blytheville Wednesday for a five-tiny clinic silk's. A community, stale or nation is no .stronger than the people in it. Right now, this ua;ioii can hardly iil't'urd to r!o without your prudui'tive effort, regardless i>l what it might be. Your family ain't afford to be willi- oul you for one or tv.u years while you um'.ui'iru U'oalnu'iil for tuberculosis. I)- 1 sun: you fuui linio to visit the in.jli.lo X-ray unit wlu-n it's available to all at ni> tost. To paraphrase a safety slogan, the tragedy you avert may be your own. take weeks. The Amerasia case, it \vil! bo recall- , cd, concerned the World War II theft of secret government documents. Mc- Granery, then with the Justice Department, was in charge of the prosecution of the ciise. McCranery later testified before a congressional committee that he made a "deal" with the principal defendant, Philip ./. Jaffe, in which the hitler pleaded guilty ami was fined $2f)0(). Testimony at the hearings, held in If MB, was withheld from the public for four years, although the committee did issue a general report. There were some complaints of a whitewash. iMcGranery defended his action in making the "deal" by stating il was the only way Ihe case could have been handled in view of the legal circumstances. What we're getting at here, is that it does seem President Truman might have chosen for so ticklish a job as attorney general a man less open to criticism, justified or not, than is McGnincry. JIcGranery would be stepping into one of the hottest spots in Washington. In fact, the thoroughly singed McGrath suggested to his successor that lie bring to Ihc job a pair of asbestos britches. There's yel another fact which might work against McGranery's effecting a smooth working operation as attorney general. In testifying as lo his actions in the Ameriasia case he blamed Ihe weakness of his position as head prosecutor on bungling by the FBI in obtaining evidence. .1. Kdgar Hoover, FBI head, isn't likely to forget that criticism, which could bring on a situation not entirely conducive lo good Justice Department morale. But the main thing is that the people of America are getting prelty well fed up with the kind of bungling and worse which has been taking place in Washington. They deserve better and sooner or later they're going lo get it,; If the appointment of McGranery is a step in the right dirction, all right. But if it isn't, the people responsible should make every effort to establish that fact. A long look at the facia now can save a lot of headaches later. And headaches right now are what the country has just about all it can take. Views of Others Check of McGranery Case May Save Headaches Later And so il comes to pa.-s that Washington, in its wisdom, will have a cabinet appointee passed upon by the department be is supposed to become head of and in wl.ich he once was the No. •> man. Tlie man is I'. S. District Court Judge James P. McGranery of Philadelphia, named by President Truman to be L'. S. Attorney General, succeeding J. Howard McGrath. The Senate Judiciary Committee, which must approve the appointment, has asked to see a full and up-to-date FBI check on McGranery, p:\rticuliivly his connection with the Amerasia case. .Some senators are predicting prvately the committee's look al Ihe record may SO THEY SAY Which Twin Has the Halo?

"He has Now South couldn't lead a low diamond to dummy's ten, for then he would never get back to his hand to cash the king and queen.

If these two players had come to you for a decision, Viow would you liavc answered them. Decide for yourself before you read on. Both o( the bidding questions are very close points.

I would bid two spades myself because I do not suppress four-card .rump support for n major suit if there is any way to ^avold It. I would not e,r it Seize a South who passed at three spades, would bid four spades myself because there's usually a w a y make ten tricks on these very close hands, and it pays to be ng- gressive in such situations. On this very hand South .should have made the game. He should draw only two rounds of trumps and then should lead diamonds.
