Un- quMtionably this report i* another ehwrful chapter in the 1949 ttory of the U. 8. economy, which started out w» such * gloomy note but has recently changed 'to quite a pleasant refrain. Views of Others Tito the Yugoslav • Tito OM Yugt»lav ipeaks louder these days than Tito the communist or Wo the Croat. Take the speech he delivered to «QO military oltUwa and guests at the end of military maneuvers last week. Marshal Tito told his audience that Yugoslavia wu threatened with war. And so? "U pays to live." he said, '{but it also pay* to die u one should." The not* of defiance rings with a desperate futility, as U echoing from the remotest periods of the south Slavs' history. The promise or resistance Is supercharged with a savage frustration. The (utility and frustration have provided a central dynamic' throughout the development ol this freedom-loving but repeatedly oppressed people. The futility Is never utter, the frustration never complete. And in ( this fact, perhaps, was the logic that moved Tito's audience when it rose and cheered hli epigram.;The.cheers said me Yugoslavs would try to do more than die, as indeed they have succeeded in doing in some crucial moments-of world history.'.. 1 "It is magnificent, but it is not war," said a shrewd: French observer of the charge of the light brigade it Balaclava. Tito's speech was magnificent without falling quite short of being diplomacy^ He disavowed connections with 1 "western reactionaries," but he added ilguiftcantly that he would not permit Yugoslavia to be isolated. He repeated his vows to Mam and Lenin, disassociating himself only from Moscow's present application of their theories in Yugoslavia. Every Yugoslav will know what he meant: Lhat U, that communism has become the cloak of Russian Imperialism in Yugoslavia ' Yugoslavs, have known Imperialism under many disguises as well a* without any. Marshal Tito seems to be playing with increasing sureness on the most resilient strings In the Yugoslav mafe-up. That does not ensure his future. But It u something If he can continue to evoke the enthusiasm of the army. / . It would take more than a speech to do that, of coiirse. The prospect of increasing aid •from the United! states Is doubtless a big factor In Tito's increasing strength within Yugoslavia. He Is no creature of American policy,- however, and should not be taken for one. In Europe or In Washington. On the other hand, Americans would need to know a great deal more than they do about Yugoslav history to appreciate the relation In which Yugoslavs place national freedom and Individual freedom. In poverty-ridden, war-stricken, tyrant^ trodden lands the freedom' equation' ii^'rather complex for more fortunate peoples to graspl All of whlcrris to say that an American policy 'supporting Tito cannot be dismissed as support- ilng communism on the one hand while opposing, the same thing on the other. Tito's communism Is not the same thing. Moreover, It Is not so.much on communism itself as on Communist -expansion by force—that is to say, on imperialism—that American policy has^sjtilta sights. And against •that Tito Is also rallying'his countrymen. His ruthless record, though nothing new In the' Balkan tradition, does not make him an attractive figure to westerners, it the choice were between support for .him and something better in Yugoslavia, American policy would have to take another turn. But as things stand, he Is making an Increasingly effective bid for western support. —CHRISTIAN.

J*r4an. M.D. Written for NBA Serrice If the heart f«lls to pump enough lood to satisfy the needs of the body, doctors say that heart failure s present. Many different Condi- Ion's can cause heart failure and heart failure can be severe or mild. A bad attack of rheumatic fever n , childhood. often injuries the leart so seriously, that heart failure develops In later yews. An Infant born -with a defective heart usually shows sign* of heart failure. Syphilis can act on the heart or arge blood vessels so that the leart Is not able to do all its work. In high blood pressure due to kidney disease, hardening .of the ar- ierles, or to some unknown cause, the heart has to work so hard against the pressure that it may of breath on. slight fall. Shortness. exertion Is one of the most "common and earliest sighs of heart failure. As soon aj the presence of heart failure has been established, tests should be made to rinrl out what is causing the difficulty. . Treatment May Be Easy Possibly even more Important than the cause l« the degree or seriousness of the heart failure Us mild cases extensive treatment may not be necessary. The patient may only have been doing too much and merely needs to cut down on the exercise and exertion. In more severe cases, of course not only must more rest be taken and the cause attacked by whatever appropriate measure's are available, but also special treatments must be considered. Among such treatments are the use of digitalis. This drug can be given by injection or by mouth. PETER EDSONS Washington News Notebook Blue Book on Capital Society Shows Social List for 1948 Free of Scandal WASHINGTON (NBA)—Last year was one of the most scandal-free years in Washington's social history, It Is now officially revealed. Measure of this Is the "Social List of Washington for 15W," just off, the press. It's the final word on Just who Is considered eligible'-to cavort at the top of the capital's cocktail circuit. When it hits the street about this time each year there's a frantic rush for it to check just who's iri and who's out. As gossip fodder this year's edition is a disappointment. : Only 600 name* were dropped /This is the smallest number since the war. They are all accounted for legitimately. Most are military people whb;have been transferred put of town. Normal tournover of other officials, which Is high'In Washington; accounts lor most ol tue rest. Biggest name off the list Is Perle Mesta, who.'left the city to.become Minister to .Luxembourg. Her leav- ing'means a resumption of the race during the winter season for title of the town's. number one hostess. Mrs. Gwenn Cafrllz, one ol the because of it. In a Quandary -Probably the biggest'social decision Mrs. Shaw had to make this year was whether or not to recognize Mrs. Max Truitt, Barkley's daughter, as his official . hostess. This makes a lot of difference where Mrs. Truilt sits at formal dinners, a matter of great importance to her as well as to hostesses. However, if Barkley had gotten married, this would have changed the picture entirely. At the last minute Mrs.'Shaw ran out of patience and gave Mrs. Tniitt the nod. As she puts It, "I just took a gamble that we would get off the press before the.vlce.president could get married." . She has no explanation as to why so few names were dropped this year except to say that, "the town just . seems to be stabilizing and staying out of trouble." She adds, "There were just no big divorces or scandals which took anybody out." She doesn't decide who will be In or out. That's up to a secret board of governors. Board membership is best-dressed women In the city and se cret so members won't be hound- wife of the most prosperous real estate man, has the inside track for that title and 1s running fast. Mrs. Carolyn Hagner Shaw, publisher of the Social List and recog- nised social arbiter lor the city reveals that Barkley almost ruined her summer with his St. Louis romance. In fact, she held up sending the book to the printers almost a month, until the end of August, ed by social climbers. It almost never fails that some big concessional investigation will cause somebody to" be taken off the list. But even the big live-percenter probe this year ; only involved one person who was listed, Gen. Harry Vaugtan, the President's military aide. And. as Mrs^ Shaw explains. •No matter what anybody says about him, as long as he's the President's i ki wni i Ywr>on By *"*«"« j«nnson 1 IN nULL T Wl.AJLJ NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD —(NEA)— Vaughn Monroe's fans can get ready lor a shock.

No doubt about the glamor treatment for Joan Caulfield In "The Petty aide, ht slays in the book." The most prominent figure in the probe, James V. Hunt, wasn't on the list last year. So he couldn't have been dropped this year If the board had wanted to. Mrs. Shaw insists that the number of autographed pictures of important people a man has on his office wall has nothing to do with his social standing in Washington. Over 1000 names were aaded to the list last year. Among them, the seven most interesting ones, according to Mrs, Shaw are: Georgia Neese Clark, new. Treasurer of the United States; Herman W. Stein- krous, new president of the Tf. 8. Chamber of Commerce; Emii Gutt, chairman of the Monetary Fund; Eugene R. Black, president of the World Bank; Sen. Foster Dulles, from New York; Rep. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jr.', from New York; and Col. Anthony J. Drexel Biddle, former TJ. S. ambassador to Poland., , In the list of socially acceptable names, the book gives the word on points of etiquette. For instance, here is the correct procedure upon receiving an invitation Irom the White House: "Invitations to luncheons or dinners must be answered Immediately. Formerly, these acknowledgements were delivered by hand to the White House. Today, however, it Is considered, proper that they be placed Sn the mail on the same day as that upon which the invitation is received."
