Harvard education is scheduled to take a big jump. Kdwarrl R. Reynolds, vice president of the university, says Harvard may not be able to afford maid sevice for dormitories .next year if wage scales continue to KO up. This would compel students to make their own beds. If the inflationary spiral isn't checked, it's logical to expect that the university will project this policy into other fields. Once a Harvard man has been taught to make his own bed it's a short step to teacli him to vacuum the nigs and sweep the corridors. The result inevitably will be a rush of girls to marry Harvard men, a new breed of intellectuals not only ornamental to the drawing room but gosh-darncd handy at helping with the housework. Views of Others Rogge Finally Learns Truth About Reds' 'Democracy' The Russians always say they are ior-peace. They say it's we in America who «r«.unfriendly and warlike. In spite of our long and futile efforts 16 engage Russia sincerely in mea- *ures for lasting peace, there still are norne among us who really believe we havtn't tri«d hard enough, b'or them, th» recent expeiience of 0. John Rogge * l the "World Peace Congresa'' in War•aw may offer some instruction. A iorm«r ardent backer of .Henry Wallace and the Progressive Party, Rofffft until recently -clung to the no- .tion the Communist and non-Commun- , i»t worlds could be reconciled. .He bent ; ov«r backwards lo urge the Red viewpoint, and was virtually a hero in the Communist press. But this time, at a meeting dominated by Reds, he had the temerity to speak some simple truths. He dared to say the United States wasn't guilty of aggression in Korea, and that Communists are using force to impress their ideas on the world. This was their friend talking, the man who had often defied the folks at home to stand up for the principle of Soviet-American understanding. But from the moment he breathed criticism of the Soviet Union and Communist tactics, he was through. N'ow, in a flash, he's just like all the , ^'frt of us Americans. He's a tool of »,Wall Street, a warmonger, an imperialist. To the Kremlin and its plaint hordes, there is only black and while. You're either a complete friend or a complete enemy. Simply because he had the nerve to ulter a few incontrovertible facts, all Rogge's past overtures of friendship are forgotten. He has been shoved beyond the pale. Does anybody need any better evidence of how unreal the Communists' world is? The unassailable fact is they don't want reality. They don't want friends—for true friends criticize. What lh«y \vnnt are lackeys, wholly submissive to their will and their distorted, hothouse view of the world. No man wlio is anything more than lhat can have any place in Hie Soviet scheme. This deep-seated characteristic of Russian thinking is one of the really great barriers to any accord between East *nd West. So long as the Soviets dwell' in their upside-down land where •war is peace and aggression is self-defense, words can't "have the same meaning for us as for them. There's no channel through which \ve can reach the men in the Kremlin. We don't speak the slime language. And they discourage every slight effort to learn even a few words in common. Rogge's record doesn't exactly en- .titl« him to »t hero's rating at home, but at least we can be grateful lo him for exposing once more the absurdity Schools Should Look to the Districts. Our schools undoubtedly have ft financial problem. But the solution is not to demand more millions from stale taxes, which are levied on store bills and incomes mutilated by federal taxes. 11 Is lo get Ihe shoulders of the school districts under the burden, with just pro|K'rty taxes. The people revolted against another slate shakedown November 7, when they Silled Amend' ment 41, which would have guaranteed the schools 62 per cent of general slate revenues. Rep. L. H. Aulry of Mississippi county Is working on a bill to require the districts to match •tale aid. This would be done on a basis allowing lor the fact lhat some dislricl-s do not have many people or much taxable wealth, while others are populous and much better off. MT. Autry has been a fighler in Ihe legislature for the schools. He Is superintendent of schools at Burdette. But he realizes that, the tax cost of the schcols has been twisted all out ol balance and fairness. He points out thai 75 per cenl ol the districts get belter than one-half of their revenue from the state—sonic 90 per cent of It. Look at the picture as a whole. State aid to the schools In Arkansas, according lo a study by Iht National Education Association, amounted to 62 per cent of the total expenditures In the 1850-51 year. In contrast, the average for Ihe whole nalion was 44.8 per cent, Only 12 states gave more state aid lhan Arkansas did. Among our near neighbors, these included Tennessee, 63.5 per cent; Louisiana, 64 per cent, and Tc.\as, 65 s>er cent. Other near neighbors were away below ws. State aid in Oklahoma was 4D.2 per cent of school expenditures; In Missouri, 38 per cent, and in Kansas,. 19 per cent. Furthermore, In slates which rank far below us in slate aid, Ihe states lax properly, while in Arkansas Ihis revenue Is left wholly to the schools and local governments. And our- per capita Incomes are nexl'jo the nation's lowest. For Ihe poor showing of our districls, school leaders are largely lo blame. They played the lop role in forcing mlllagcs up to a point of rapacity which has fostered underassessment and tax-dodging. This blunder must, be repaired—a [air assessing system adopted—lo bring property fairly Into IU share of school costs. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT So They Say They Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet!

PUn G|TM Ocmocral* A Program There are certain political considerations behind sll this, too. One explanation being jriven tor the Democratic reverses In the last election has been that the party in power h»d no new program. It was on the defensive throughout the campaign. It WM the Republicans —like Senator McCarthy—who followed the same tactics used in the 1948 campaign by President Truman, in constantly attacking. One Important factor in carrying tht west for the Democrats In 19« was that they h»d a big reclamation program to sell. The Republicans didn't have one.

Written for NEA Service Multiple sclerosis is a fairly rare disease of the nervous system, but a very important one. Even though not common there are probably close to one hundred thousand persons afflicted with it In the United Stales alone, H attacks several parti ol the nervous system and it Is for thla reason that it Is called "multiple." The symptoms depend on what parts of the nervous system are Involved. Since the location varle* ther «»re no completely typical lymptoms, Ihough seeing double, trembling or a tremor when trying to pick up some object and a gall which looks somewhat like that of a drunken person are probably the most com mon. One or all of these may be absent and consequently the diagnosis may be difficult to make or king delayed. Many theories have been suggested about iU cause but-none have proved tenable so far. Many treatments have been tried, including artificial fever, the use 01 drtlgc to delay blood coagulation, atempts to desensitize to allergies, and vaccines. It appears that long rest Is the best form ol treatment the acute stage of multiple sclercMls. A group of doctors and Interegted citizens has been formed to fight this serious nervous disease. The body is called the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, wllh head- Qua'rlcrs at 270 Park Avenue, New York 17, N. Y.

Then our troops were near disaster as the result of a heavy enemy counter-attack over a forty-mile tract.

Commander-in-Chlcf may have been making a shrewd gamble on the weather. Winter Is maneuvering to get Its icy grip on Korea and, once It has succeeded, scale military operations will be exceedingly difficult. However, between the stall of winter and the Ice-bound days (which com* In early December) there Is' a brief period in which troops can be moved and heavy fighting can take place. So It could &e—and this is speculation on rny part—that MacArihur has aimed at a quick knockout of the Chinese Communists In North Korea, Just before winter shuts In and makes It Impossible for the Chinese in Manchuria to move further reinforcements across the Yalu Hlver until spring arrives. Should that happen, it would Indeed be the end of the military task given MacArihur. He could assign (he guarding of the frontier to Ihe South Koreans, and release at least some of the other TJ.N. troops.

The other day le worked himself Into a real prob- em ending. The bidding was far from inspired. North's use of the Blackwood Convention was in the worst tradition. It didn't matter how m«ny aces and kings South had, as long as he had a sound opcn- ng bid. What did matter was how solid South's hearts were; and this wa* something North could never [ind out by asking about aces and king*. Moreover, if South's clubs had been Just enough stronger to Include the king Instead of the queen, h*' would have bid six spades over five no-trump, it might then be Impossible to (ind i iafe slam contract. However, th« bidding wound up at a. good spot. Hard Luck Joe found himstlt playing the hand at East would have to ruff. South would over-ruff, cash the jack of clubs, ruff his last diamond In dummy, and then lake the rest with high trumps. If East returned a diamond, to make dummy ruff and thus prevent a second trump finesse, South could still make the slam. Dummy would ruff the diamond and cash the ace of clubs. Then Ihe ace of pades would be led. 1C East ruffed South could over-ruff, draw trumps and cash the jack of clubs. H East liscarded.

While h«° obviously has entered Into a partnership with Moscow, there Is no sign that h« wants a Chinese- American war.

It's only a short time ago hat President Truman Issued a statement stressing our friendship for the people of China. Indeed, as v l pointed out in this column last week, the United States couldn't afford war with China because a military victory would still cave lis with a political black-eye. In Asia. America would lose even If she won. % ^tf So now if MacArihur could gi^T s a quick: victory, confining the conflict lo Korean territory, it might do much to lessen further the d»ng«r of conflict between China »nd the United States. It should convince Pelplng that America has no designs on Manchuria. Joe's hard anyway—was luck- that, -or part of It East was gopc enough to see all this.-East actually returned a trump. Joe could draw .rumps, but then the clubs wert blocked; and he wound up in dummy .with a. losing spade. Of course Joe should have hadi ,he slam by playing It better, instead of ruffmg a low spade, h< should have continued trump* drawing four rounds.
