Laying It On the Line In his years in office President Eisenhower has made clear to all the world his abhorrence of war. Just as firmly, he has set himself against peace without honor, justice and dignity. The concept of a just peace is not new in America. But consciousness of it was greatly freshened when in 1945 the late Senator Vandenberg reminded the harassed U.N. founders at San Francisco that they were overlooking it. Mr. Eisenhower perhaps fears that once again it is being overlooked in important capitals. So he has spoken out forcefully against any policy that would sell men's freedom "for the pottage of a false peace." This summer's Geneva conference disclosed a new mood of conciliation—on the surface—among the leaders in Russia's Kremlin. In their terrible anxiety over war, some of our European friends were prepared to take almost anything the Communists might package under the label "peace.'' There appeared a. disposition, espe- cialy. to accept a settlement which would have the effect of approving the status quo in Europe. That would mean indirectly sanctioning the Russian conquest of the peoples of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Rumania and Bulgaria.•, The United States is going to 'war to liberate these peoples, who still wish passionately to be free. But neither will we e.:dur;e their slavery. Said the President at Philadelphia: "The domination of captive countries cannot longer be justified by any claim that this is needed for purposes of security." The simple tenets of justice demand that we refrain from any settlement which accepts that domination as regular and proper. In the President's view, we should go still further in our support of these principles. We should ask, as proof that such injustice shall not be practiced henceforth under the banner of an "agreed peace," that world-wide organized subversion of other governments be ended. His words on this point: "An international political machine, operating within the borders of sovereign nations for their political and ideological subversion, cannot be explained away as a cultural movement." This is plain common sense. If Russia means sincerely to end the Cold War, it cannot demonstrate by mere ask «u«t ae*M trying to under- cut the very governments it may profess to accept in coexistence, At Geneva Mr. Eisenhower rightfully earned respect for kindling the spirit of cooperation among nations. The Russians said they were impressed, and smiled their agreement. He now gives them — and our friends as well — new notice that the United States wants the spirit of Geneva fulfilled by a peace of real substance and justice. VIEWS OF OTHERS Good News For Everyone - Almost The report of the current level of employment is good news for America. At the end of July, the nation had an all-time high in employment — 64,995,000 workers. This number left only 2,471,000 on unemployed lists, a remarkably low number. But the best news of all is that the American economy is showing steady, regular gains. If employment figures were hitting a high peak one month and dropping low the next, the news wouldn't be so good, for it would indicate the economy was unstable. But for the past five • months, the number of Americans employed has grown steadily upward, meaning that we are enjoying an expanding economy. The larger number of workers are making things and performing services which make the standard of living of all of us higher. It's simply the American free enterprise system at work. But ifle high level of employment is not good news to everybody. The professional gloom and dopm prophets who have been trying to pin a propaganda "depression" on the Eisenhower Administration cannot be happy. Everyone else can. — Chattanooga News-Free Press. "Our" New Baby Have you seen I'our" new baby? That refers to no particular new baby, but Is merely putting into a few words some of the long-winded conversations which arise when a new baby is born to anyone. Children are not the personal possessions of their parents. Some parents see their children off to college, feeling sincerely happy that they can have this opportunity. Others dwell lengthily, both privately and publicly, on how empty the home is without them. Some parents rejoice at a child's happy marriage. Others weep at the wedding and go about afterward full of self pity. Some accept son's entry into the armed forces as inevitable and send him off with courage matching their own'. Others try to have him exempted, and when he goes to camp, send him off emotionally upset. Maybe this difference is occasioned by an attitude of possession. After all a child is given to us to' love, teach and train. We should be able to see them leave home and enter society as full fledged individuals with courage. Those who think of them as their personal and everlasting possessions will think of their own loss rather than the children's inevitable and wholesome growth. Just the same it's mighty fine when they come home, isn't it, even if we don't own them? — Plainview (Tex.) Herald. &%$*(AP)-?(! If you Want to swear at the boss, go right ahead. You may get fired but you won't forfeit your state unemployment compensation benefits. At least that was the net of a ruling In Connecticut the other day and presumably the same thing applies in Florida. A factory worker in Hartford asked for a pass to go home, claiming: that a fan turned on him at the plant made his shoulder hurt. The foreman telephoned the personnel department about it and made some derogatory remarks about the worker. The man overheard what the foreman sairl, called him a liar and cussed him out. The foreman promptly fired him, A .state unemployment compensation commissioner heard the case and delivered this opinion: "Sometimes harsh words, like a chemical precipitate, must be used to clarify a murky situation. What this claimant said was undoubtedly harsh. But it was said instinctively and without premeditation. It did hot offend the foreman nor cause him to blink." So the commissioner held that the worker was not guilty of "willful misconduct." And on that basis he ruled that the man was eligible to receive state jobless pay benefits. Any taxpayers who may cuss at this ruling also are guaranteed against losing their status — they can keep right on paying taxes. — Fort Myers (Fla.) News-Press. SO THEY SAY Here. I'm on my own.

Senate's decision to select its five greatest (dead) members and hang medallions 01' mem in the reception room outside the chain ber will probably let loose the greatest flood of favorite-son oratory ever heard outside a national political convention. What's more, this debate is going 1 to go on for the next 10 years. For the distinguished senators have decided in their infinite, unanimous \v\stlom that only one ot these five greatest senators of all time shall be chosen in one session of two years. Next year, the 84th Congress will presumably choose the one greatest senator of all American history. The 85th Congress in the following two years will choose the next greatest. And so on until 1966, when the basketball team will be completed. You can just imagine what a . There will be a great temptation for the 96 living, and therefore ineligible, senators who will do the voting to concentrate on their colleagues of more recent vintage because they are better remembered. Taft of Ohio and Vandenberg of Michigan will have their champions among the Republicans. Cornell Hull of Tennessee and Tom Walsh of Montana would rate well up among the Democratic nominees. ' Prom the Progressive era just before there would be Fighting Old Bob LaFollette of Wisconsin, the beloved Sen. George" Norris of Nebraska, Hiram Johnson of California, and William E.

He was impeached by the House but cleared by the Senate. President Warren G. Harding of Ohio was also a senator. And, of course, Harry Truman. John C. Calhoun of South Carolina, certainly among the great senators, Was John Quincy Adams' vice president, and also Andrew Jackson's. There' were signers of the Declaration in the early Senates: Charles Carroll of CarroIUon, Md.; Richard Henry Lee of Virginia who wrote the first Thanksgiving proc- tarnation, and Elbridge Gerry of Rhode Island, vice president to James Ma'dison in his second term and great-grandfather of another distinguished Rhode Island senator of a few years ago. But it is from the senators who reached the peak of their careers right in the Senate itself that the picking becomes really difficult. Texas will certainly never settle for any list that does not contain the name of Sam Houston. From the North, the name of Daniel Webster of New Hampshire stands out. Thomas Hart Benton of Missouri was the first congressman to serve 30 consecutive years. Eucene Hale of Maine. George Frisbie Hoar of Massachusetts, John Sherman' of Ohio, father of the Anti-trust Act: John Sharp Williams of Mississippi. Oscar W. Underwood of Alabama and a dozen others nil have their claim to fame, and how can anyone decide which five were greatest? But if you want a real exercise, try making up a list of the five greatest demagogues who ever sat in the Senate. frsA/ne Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD By ERSKINE JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD —(NBA)— Exclusively Yours: Feudln', lussin' and fightin' may end soon for another famous team—the Andrews Sisters.

JORDAN, M.D. The biggest reason for the improved life expectancy today over that of years ago is the result of the decline in deaths from the so- called childhood diseases. This in turn is largely the result of protective inoculations or vaccinations which have increased the resistance of millions of children to some of the most serious killers of the past. We cannot afford to le( down these barriers and consequently it is wise to review, .from, time to time, the status of our children so far as protective vaccination is concerned. Most children are given several of the vaccinations they need in the first months or years of life. Many of them, in order to insure continued protection, should be repeated one or more times during the school age period. Furthermore, new developments continue to occur; it may well be that some of the older high school youngsters did not receive the toxoid injections against tetanus or lockjaw which are now so commonly given to small children, and therci'ore could profit by it, Vaccination against smallpox is usually done within the first six months after birth. Alter this vaccination (which should be and almost always is a "take" the first time), immunization against diphtheria, whooping cough and tutcnus (lockjaw) are often done. These are often Riven together by or before six months old. usually in throe or four doses. Today there Is a tendency to give many of these protective immunizations earlier and earlier. The four named are probably the most Important protective inoculations for -children. All of them, Including smallpox, should be repealed in .the later ycnrs of childhood to Reinforce the resistance. fiomeitincs * question of other types of inoculation comes up. Certainly it seems that polio vaccination will be added but it is still too soon for me ,at least, to s"ay when or how. Among others is that against typhoid fever, which is a germ disease usually contracted from contaminated water, milk, fruits, or vegetables. Ii 1 a person is going to some part of the world where the sanitation is poor, inoculation against typhoid and possibly other diseases may be desirable. The advice of the physician who takes care of the child from birth should be followed when it comes to giving protective inoculations. Certainly these vaccinations are largely responsible for the improved chance of living through childhood which y o u n g s t evs have now.
