And most Americans probably don't give too much thought to j. the problem of where the steel comes ••from. They assume that because the ";. supply has been ample up to now, it al.•'•ways will be. ; The truth is that our reserves of ' ;, high-grade iron ore, from which steel r is made, are seriously depleted. Some '.gteel firms face a shortage of raw material within a few years. The most for: tunate can see stocks lasting no more ' than 20 to 25 years. Since before the turn of the century, this country has had an amazingly cheap source of iron ore: the famed Mesabi Range in Minnesota. Here high- grade ore has been mined in open pits / by the simple steam shovel method. ' From these pits came the material that •/carried America and its allies through .two world wars. But while the second great conflict was in progress, a steel man said: "This is the last war that will be fought off the Mesabi." In other words, the re- serves were eaten away so badly by our ."huge armaments program that they - would play out if forced to supply the ;_' sinews of another war. This realization is food for sober \ thinking. The dwindling of our top-grade ore stocks means this: Either we must ' find new sources of supply or we must see one of the stoutest props ot our economic strength knocked out from un: tier us. - There are two main possibilities before the nation. One is to turn to t'oreign sources. Fabulous undeveloped reserves of iron ore exist in Brazil and Labra- '.dor, and Venezuela is a secondary pros- ipect. I The other course is lo dip into Amer- jica's own vast holdings of low-grade ore !—a material hitherto largely untouched ;because of the high cost of mining it. 'Heavy investments of new plants would ;be needed to concentrate low-grade ore [sufficiently for commercial purposes. I Some eastern mills already rely on ; Venezuelan sources. And 'development ;work is now going forward in Labrador on a considerable scale. But American steel companies are understandably reluctant to plan a wholesale switch to foreign ores. The problems are many: keeping friendly political relations with the supplying country, protection of the raw material lifeline in case of war, possible costly shift of plants from present inland centers to coastal cities to reduce overland transportation costs. Experimental plant operations with tow-grade ore have thus been undertaken in the hope the domestic alternative will offer a better, safer answer. And now a mining company has taken the first step toward more *mbitioui production of commercial concentrates from low-quality sources. The move looks wise and it is to be hoped that other big firms follow suit. Even though the domestic development of new supplies might prove costlier than reliance on foreign ores, it would be worth the expense if we thereby avoid, ed grave new political and military difficulties. Empty Gesture Communist-led guerrilla forces in Greece have generously announced that they are calling off the painfully drawn- out civil war. They point out, however, that they are keeping their rifles in readiness, just in case the regular Creek government fails to show proper gratitude for their gracious gesture. But they neglect to acknowledge one fact: they're already licked. The Greek government no longer cares what they offer or what they do with the comparatively few rifles they have left. Views of Others An Old But Bad Habit Dr. Edwin Nourse must have been a little surprised by some, of the people who rushed to praise him as soon as he quit President Truman's Council of Economic Advisers. Among them were some wno have favored Just about every federal expenditure, but who have stridently opposed every eltort to maintain federal Income. These are the very people who were rebuked by Mr. Nourse, but they do not sec in to realize It. Most Americans, of course, have not given such blanket approval to Government spending. Tliey have been for It only when they saw a direct benefit for themselves. Many a farmer, tot Instance, thinks it Is a pretty good Idea lor the Government to buy and bum potatoes, but he is skeptical about aid to "lazy city folks." Contrariwise, laboring men hive their doubt* about helping farmers, but they are all tor subsidies which keep shipyards open and, thus, keep them on a payroll. Mayors and governors otten struggle to keep down city or state taxes—white asking the Government to build and maintain their institutions, A businessman may be loudest in the denunciation of Washington extravagance; but, ol course, It U not extravagance if he Is the beneficiary. It all adds up to a strange split In the American character. No doubt,.this has become more pronounced as a result of the depression and the war. But the late LJoyd Lewis, In one ol his most brilliant essays, showed that It was characteristic even of the pioneers. Whether they were aod-buslers or railroad builders, they called for Washington handouts with lusty lungs. It Is true, as his new supporters point out, that Mr. Nourse criticized spending by the Government. But it Is also true that he turned his fire more specifically on certain labor -unions, businessmen and farmers. After all, what is government but their representatives? Congressmen may be only too eager to please their constituents. But suppose people stopped wanting so muchVfrpm Washington? In all fairness, many of the ; wants «re legitimate enough. That' goes fo rnatioiml defense, foreign aid, reasonable veterans' benefits, and so on through a long list ol items. The Government must take a humanitarian interest in Its citizens; it cannot abandon them lo the wild winds ol circumstance. Also, the world's economy has become so complicated that it cannot be left to the single-entry devices of old-fashioned shopkeepers. Reciprocal trade and the insurance of bank deposits, to mention only two random examples, show how vital It is for Government to play an economic role. The question Is how that role can be played wisely and well. Here lies the justification ol the Council of Economic Advisers, Irom which Mr. Nourso has resigned Economists do disagree. But even the disagreements of experts should be enlightening to the nation's chief administrator. Jilr. Nourse has demonstrated this. He was right In expressing the fear that, living standards cannot be raised by labor doing less work and clamoring for more pay, by tanners demanding "stimulative farm prices while Government accumulates gigantic surplus holdings,' or by management choosing "banked fires rather than capitiilisticnlly venturesome re-examination ot practices of accounting and theories ot price maH- Ing." Mr. Nourse gave sound advice to the people as well es to the President when he said that, useful as deficits may be in times ot depression, they must be liquidated, instead of enlarged, In times of prosperity. The American people—all of them: workers, farmers and businessmen—must get ovei the notion that they can rely on handout alter handout. They must get over the habit ot preaching restraint to the other fellow without practicing it themselves. -ST.

Jordan. M. I) Wrllten for NBA Service The pacing of a kidney stone can be entirely painless but quite often the pain Is terrific. A kidney stone may have existed lor many years without producing any pain or other symptoms. Most of them grow slowly and do not cause [rou- groups of'crystals which form into round or Irregularly shaped balls. | They start in an irregularly shaped space Inside the kidney which opens Into the ureter or passageway which leads down to the bladder. When stones start down this small passageway, they scrape on (he tender sides of the duct, causing spasm and bleeding. H is this which produces the terrific pain and which frequently blocks the flow of urine and causes it to back up behind the stone. Relieving the Pain There are at least two stages In the treatment of kidney stones. The first Is to care for the Immediate pain and other symptoms. It Ls not, safe to leave a stone permanently in the ureter, as damage can be done to the kidney itself. The location of the stone can be High U.S. Navy Officers Say They Can Operate Two Carriers for Price of One Big Battleship By Douglas Larscn WASHINGTON—(NEAI—At one stage in the Navy's revolt against opinions on the titles of songs which arc whistled or hummed over the te ephone.

They Can Work Toscllier Air Force and Navy are trying lo work out a mutually-satisfactory policy on the use of military aircraft for air shows. This problem hns been a majo rheadache to both services. Every small town, particularly in the South, which want? to sponsor an air show, pressure? the Air Force and Navy through the congressmen, to send planes to participate. This has proved an extremely expensive and dnngerous activity Many service pilots have been kilted In these demonstrations.

Still I have a motion ho was wasf^ ing his energy. 1 don't believe you'' can kill religion that way any more than old King Canute could make the tie recede at his command. As a matter of fact, religion Is doing all right for it?elf. There are many signs of moral and spiritual revival in various carts of our war- shocked world.

Chronic Infections' should be treated. Vitamins arc sometimes added to the diet. Nole: Dr. Jordan is unable to answer individual questions from readers. However, each day he will answer one of the most frequently asked questions in his column. « • • QUESTION-. Please tell me why I always have cold feel and hands, summer and winter?
