F^etiremfjffffto Active Service £-|^ t If General Eisenhower has decided •that after '32 years in the Army he lhas discKarget} his duly to Ms couir jtry, liis fellow Americans will not be so '[Ungrateful as to contradict him. Yet >there is 'certairr'tp be a -fcelinft of re- igret at -his .decision,, along with the !happicr and no less heartfelt congratulations to the General and to Columbia ^University on their mutual gcxxi for- itune. Dwijjht D. Eisenhower is already" cine of the truly beloved figures of our military history. Millions of Americans who know him only through photographs and newsrcels must instinctively have liked and trusted him. Theif could scarcely help it. : They have respected him as a bril- "lianV commander .and an able administrator. They have admired the diplomacy which enabled him to reason with some of the more positive and temperamental • Allied lenders, rnnvince them,' and: persuade them to a unanimous decision when unanimity was of decisive importance to the whole , world's future. • As-Chief of Staff, General Eisenhower has' not oily worked to give the country an adequate peacetime defyiiKO. He has also,,urged his countrymen, with ^rnpcllihg sincerity, to increase their'individual efforts to bring about lasting peace. Quite possibly General Eisenhower might have had a presidential nomination by the nod of his head. Instead he . has chosen to accept leadership of orm of the country's oldest, largest ami most famous universities. In doing so he has cliosen to limit somewhat hU service to the'"n'atiofuBut .there seems little reason to' fear that that -service will be confined to the boundaries ol campus or academic schedule. General Eisenhower will be working in the great city which i s now the home and capital of the United Nations. The position he will occupy, beginning next year, is of considerable consequence in the educational and cultural hfc of that city. The schools over .which he will preside attract stude&a from all over the world. Al»o the General inherits with his po«it%^,pattern,, almost a tradition, o£.«ctivity from his predecessor. The •"*' U>te Nicholas Murray Butler, now a, ted an incredibly busy life for 50 years as scholar, executive, author, politician, civic leader, and internationally influential educator. Most important of all, Genera! Eisenhower will be close to the .source of future history. For history is only the sum of human activity. Ami that activity is only the sum of dreams and conscious thoughts in individual human minds. Plans for conquest, plans for peace, economic systems, great discoveries, great books, great treacheries—these and all other history-making actions were first of all a secret thought.. General Eisenhower and all other educators can help to shapi the thoughts of future leaders toward the best goals. They crtn help train the minds of the followers to recognize and choose the best leaders. With such an opportunity,' it cannot be said that the Chief of Staff and General of (ho Army is resigning his active role in national and world affairs. VIEWS OF OTHERS It's Vacation Time Americans will dig Into their vacation pockets this year to the nmount of $15,000.000.000. So the travel Industry now estimates r.s It prepares to receive the first impact of whut will be the biggest vacation spending spree In the history of (lie United States. Thftt more people arc traveling more; places and spending more money this year than ever before is primarily due to three basic reasons: 1. There are more accommodations available «nd better services. 2. The »!r, bus, and rail Hues have more equipment, faster schedules, and IrcciuCnS service to the Nation's top. resort areas. 3. New automobiles, while not In abundance, arc becoming available to more families. Resort, hotel, and transportation companies, as today's special vacation section of this newspaper reveals, are back In the tourist business on as keen a competitive basis as has existed in many, many years. All during the \KU-. the Nation's resorts actually didn't need to advertise. They had more business than they could accommodate. This is different. People are "shopping" carefully for their vacation wares. They are going to spend considerable money and they »re going to be certain it is well spcn:.. Canada, South America, ami a number of European countries nre after the u, S. tourist dollar. They have launched campaigns designed to lure Americans to their respective lands. The travel Industry, botli here and in foreign countries, is going all out to give the vacation- ist his money's worth. Hotel and lodges have been spruced up or remodeled, trtuisrxii tation systems have added luxurious equipment, and services in general arc up to prewar standards. Americans, it is true, will pay more for their vacation fun in 1947 than they did for similar recreational advantages in IBM. .But they will receive ill return better values. \ The $15.000,000.000 expenditure for travel by Americans this year is a sound investment. A. vacation trip brings freshness of outlooK, gives wholesome fun and recreation in addition to a better understanding of the various peoples encountered in diverse sections of the woild. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR BARBS BY HAL COCHRAN \ Maybe it's natural for so many barber> to tell Jokes that have whiskers on them. * • • This is the (Imfc of year when most people enjoy IKe, says a writer.

Written for.NBA Service When a thermometer Is placed under the tongue, an' average temperature or B8.6 P. is recorded. Many normal persons have a mouth temperature which Is higher or lower than this figure. Temperature Is lowest In the morning and highest. j n the late afternoon or evening. To record these differences most hospitals have a practice of making temperature observations In the morning on a fasting stomach before drink has been taken and between 3 and 5 o'clock in the afternoon. There may be a normal difference in these temperatures of one to two degrees. If either the morning or afternoon mouth temperature Js higher than S9.6 P., the temperature should be taken every four hours _ at 7 a.m.. 11 a.m., 3 p.m., 1 p.m. and 11 pin. aurt during the night If im; patient Is awake Proper method of taking moptli temperature Is to wash the thermometer with soap and water or antiseptic, it should be thoroughly shaken down and placed uii'trr -.he tongue with the lips ch-sed.

Jlllv 1. (NBA) — Vice Adm. Louis E. Dcntield. com- mander-in-Chlef of the Pacific Fleet and likeliest successor to Adm. Chester W.
