Answer Is All Too Clear "Who is Orval Faubus?" This question was heard with surprising regularity in the first few days before and after the Democratic preferential primary Since then, it has been answered to the satisfaction of hundreds of thousands of voters. For essentially, Orval Faubus is still one of the boys who sup at Sid McMath's table. Where does his support come from? It comes from the same, once-powerful, but now weakened group of politicians who have been uncomfortably on the out during the past two years. Once they proved Governor Cherry was a man uninfluenced by their brand of politics, they began casting about among the McMath school for a candidate and came up with Orval Faubus, who was on McMath's Highway Commission and was thoroughly familiar with their way of doing things. Governor Cherry is the nemesis of this group. He has not played ball with them and will not after his election Tuesday. There will be no man to see, no swap of votes for favors and no doing business through irregular channels. Let us hope these days are over forever in Arkansas. Striking Against Progress? The pilots' strike against American Airlines, the nation's largest domestic carrier, is important because it goes close to the heart of air progress. Starting last November, American put new DC-7 r s into the first none stop service between New York and California. This was a substantial advance over previous service involving a stop at either Chicago or Dallas. Americas scheduled the westbound flight at seven hours, 55 minutes, and the eastbound at seven hours, 15 minutes. A CAA check flight records last spring showed, however, that in a one- month period not a single westbound flight had been completed in eight hours. Up to then, all domestic lines operated under rules fixing an eight-hour limit on pilots' scheduled flying. American sought waiver of this ruling and CAB granted it temporarily, setting a new 10-hour limit The Airline Pilots' Association had filed a complaint which led to the CAA time check. It contained to be dissatisfied after the waiver and American's revised schedules adding 30 minutes to the westbound trip and 20 to the eastbound. The union has supplied the initiative for the present strike against scheduled DC-7 operations. Th$ association foundi it« protest oa the issue of safety. It argues that pilots who are compelled to be at the controls more than.eight hours are not fit to cope with the flying problems that might arise. However, comparison with the overseas operations of international carriers like Pan American casts some doubt on the reasonableness of this argument. Pan Am is allowed to fly DC-6's (predecessor to the DC-7) on overwater flights ranging from eight to 12 hours, nonstop, with two pilots and a flight engineer—the same crew American Airlines employs on the disputed New York- California run. The captain and copilot share duty at the controls according to their own wishes, though both must remain in the cockpit continuously. There is no indication this arrangement is any kind of safety risk. American's coast-to-coast flight is closely comparable, but would seem, if anything, to be safer. For overland flights in this country have greater navigational aids, and regular or emergency airports constantly within reach. On flights exceeding 12 hours, Pan American or any other U. S. international carrier is required to use multiple crews consisting of a captain, a first officer with identical qualifications, a a second officer who can fly but is omst- ly navigator, and another copilot and two flight engineers. Thus any one of four men may be at the controls. In practice, the captain sets up a "flight watch" at the preflight briefing to parcel out the flying work, weighing weather and other conditions. But nothing in government regulations sets a top limit on the time he or any other man may fly the aircraft. The safety argument against the DC-7 nonstop service appears thin. What the union really seems to fear is that many more concessions might follow from the abandonment of the outmoded eight-hour rule—which was set in a day when pilots might have to make several- landings and takeoffs in that span. They merit reassurance on this score. But the kind of progress DC-7 nonstop service represents should not be impeded by dubious raising of the safety issue. VIEWS OF OTHERS Back in the, days when judicial decisions were based on law instead of sociology, a Supreme Court of the United States gave expression to an evaluation of race relations which stands today as profoundly analytical as it was in 1896. That was the Court which enunciated the "separate but equal" doctrine, now repudiated by a Court which prates learnedly of the adverse psychological impact which racial separation has upon the minds of Negro children. But the Justices of 1896 were not unaware of psychology and the essentials of what now is is commonly termed "human relations," even though they did not wander aside in to those misty fields in search of legal grounds. Here's what that Court had to say, and we challenge the Court of today to improve upon this appraieal: "If the races are to meet upon terms of social equality, it must be the result of natural affinities, a mutual appreciation of each other's- merits, and a .voluntary consent of individuals." In that one sentence, the Supreme .Court of 1869 caught the essence of the race problem. The years have proved .the wisdom of the expression for the two races HAVE develpoed a greater appreciation of each other's merits, and individuals of both races are voluntarily building closer associations. To upset the sound and sensible bases upon which such progress has been made is to break down the achievements of many years.

No Thanks, I Feel Fine 7 Peter ft/son's Washington Column — End of Foreign Aid Program Is Seen If, No War Breaks Out By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — NEA — If no new war breaks out and if Congress has its way, the end of the U.S. foreign aid program is in sight. This may be the last year of new appropriations. Under such a program, the Foreign Operations Administration would be given until June 30, 1955, to liquidate its operations. The technical assistance program — Point Four — would then be turned back to the State Department to run as a limited but more or less permanent operation. The military assistance program would then be given another year —until June 30, 1957, to make final deliveries of goods now on order but still in the pipeline for future delivery. But if the end of foreign aid does come in 1956 and 1957, it will mean that the United States will have contributed to this cause over $62 billion in the 12-year postwar period beginning in 1945. Of this sum, $39 billion will have been economic aid, $23 billion military. Appropriations to carry out this year's foreign aid authorization program of something over $3 billion are expected to sail through the final day s of Congress without too much trouble. There were plenty of signs of congressional dissatisfaction with the whole foreign aid program, however, in getting the initial authorizations passed. The Senate Foreign Relations committee recommended a 10 per cent cut in President Eisenhow- er's requested appropriation for this year. Then Senator Mike Mansfield (D.-MontJ — certainly one of the most international- minded congressmen — proposed the cut-off schedule for all foreign aid as outlined above. The signs of dissatisfaction with the foreign aid program were even more noticeable in the House. The authorization bill passed the House with the comfortable majority of 260 to 125. For the bill were 141 Democrats, 118 Republicans and one Independent. Against the bill were 78 Republicans and 47 Democrats. This shows Democrats still the main support for aid. What was noted particularly about this vote, however, was that 34 congressmen — eight Republicans and 26 Democrats — who voted for foreign aid in 1953, this year voted against it. When Democrats desert the program in such numbers, the jig is well on the way up. Nearly all of these 34 switching congressmen have been interviewed for this column on why they changed their votes. 'The answers give a pretty good index of current objections to foreign aid. The principal reason given was that there are now some $9 billion in unspent carryover funds. This was considered enough to complete the program during the next two or three years and make delivery of items now on order or in the pipeline. Among the congressmen who expressed this view were Democrats Abbitt and Tuck of Virginia, Ashmore and McMillan of South Carolina, Shuford of North Carolina and Dempsey of New Mexico. The second reason given was that a new look was needed for the 'entire foreign aid program, because of changed conditions abroad. Congressmen expressing this view included Selden and Battle of Alabama, Bonner and Deane of North Carolina. The third principal reason given was the need for economy. Democrats Jones of North Carolina and Alexander of Virginia were outspoken on this point. In general, Republicans who switched their votes this year had local reasons. Hillelson of Missouri says off-shore procurement in Europe shut down an ordnance plant in his district. Utt of California objects to foreign aid because he can't get a few thousand dollars for beach erosion control in his district. Saylor of Pennsylvania says the revival of Europe's coal industry hurt mining in his state. Bailey, West Virginia Democrat, says aid to Italy's pottery industry hurt his district. Rep. Cooley, North Carolina Democrat, sums it all up by saying that most of the European ountries have now been rehabilitated and so don't need American assistance any more. Off 11 Republican congressmen who voted for the 1954 foreign aid bill, though they had been against the 1953 bill, three said they did so without enthusiasm. The others did it to support the President. the Doctor Says— Written for NEA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN. M.D. I have often wondered whether our ancestors were as much troubled with allergies as we are today. It may be that they were, but with the exception of asthma they had so much difficulty with more serious diseases such as smallpox, typhoid and diphtheria that they paid little attention to the minor allergies which we hear so much about today. What is allergy? It can be defined most simply by calling it an increased or abnormal sensitiveness to some foreign substance— that is foreign to the body—which is inhaled in the form of pollen from the air, taken into the body in foods, or come in contact with in such substances as hair, weeds or lacquer. If the allergy is to any particular food and if this food can b« identified, complete avoidance of the symptoms. Too often, however, a person may be sensitive to more than one food or to some food substance such at milk or wheat which are used so extensively in cooking and preparation of the foods we eat that it becomes extremely difficult to eliminate them entirely from the diet. The management of a food allergy is almost always difficult. The first problem is to find out what food, or foods, are at fault. Sometimes simple dislikes may five a clue. The patient himself may be able to tell from sad experience what foods (like shrimp or strawberries) always give trouble. The history of reactions is important. In other words, a person ought to know pretty well what he or she has eaten at a meal which was followed by allergic symptoms. Skin tests with various foods are commonly used, but are not always •otnpltUly raliablt and U r*- quires an expert to interpret them. Trial diets which include or exclude suspected foods are often helpful in finding the foods respon- .sible. A food diary by which a record is kept of the foods eaten at each meal has been recommended. Sometimes a diet can be outlined which at least temporarily eliminates some of the foods to which the patient is sensitive. Little by little, one or more of the foods can be added and eventually a tolerable diet built up. Attempts have been made to desensitize, that is to overcome the allergy gradually, by injection or by other means. This consists in giving extremely small quantities of extract of the offending substance in the same way that pollen extracts are given for hay fever. This is a long and not always successful method, but success also often crowns the effort. JACOBY ON BRIDGE Don't Get Excited Or*r This Bidding Don't take the bidding of today's hand too seriously. It is given as though it actually happened by Pierre Albarran in his latest book, "One Hundred Extraordinary Hands," but I'm inclined to believe that the hand is more extraordinary than real. The bidding Is only a means of getting South into the fairly rea- •onable contract of thret no- trump. This contract is defeated only when East appears to be taken with a fit of madness. West opens the ace of clubs, and East throws away his ace of diamonds. West continues with the queen of clubs, dummy plays the king, and East now throws away the ace of spades. After this remarkable series of plays, South can take two high spades, three high hearts, one high 4AQJ10 9842 r: 4K7653 EAST 4 A 10 6 V J 10 9 8 6432 4 A 10 4 None SOUTH 4KQ952 - V75 4K96532 4 None East-West vul. North East Scirih Double Pass 3 * 3 V Pas* 3 N.T. Pass Pass Opening lead— 4 A diamond and a club. As soon as South tries to develop either the spades or the diamonds, West will gain the lead and defeat the contract with his long clubs. East's mad ^lays are, of course, necessary to defeat the contract. If East keeps the ace of diamonds, South can lead a diamond from the dummy towards his king. East can win one diamond trick with the ace, but then South's king will clear up the rest of the suit. South will therefore make enough diamond tricks to guarantee the contract. The effect of throwing away the ace of diamonds is to transfer the defenders' only diamond trick to West.

This unusual play is still not enough to defeat the contract. Declarer can lead spades towards his hand, giving up one trick to the ace whenever East wants to take it. This shuts West out and gives South enough spade tricks to guarantee the contract. East deieats this plan by throw- Ing away his ace of spades. The defense is still sure of one and only one spade trick, but now it is West who wins that trick with the jack instead of East with the ace. My suspicious nature prevents me from believing this hand ever took place, but I must compliment Mr. Albarran on his lively imagination. mount's remake of Wagon."
