Dream Fulfilled Long before American steel experts began to worry seriously about depletion of the nation's high-grade iron ore reserves, it was known that rich deposits lay untapped in the frozen wastes of northern Quebec. Getting at them seemed a remote dream. Yet just a few days ago, the dream was realized. The first trainloads of ore were hauled 360 miles south over a line that had been painfully hacked out of the wilderness. At the rail terminus of Seven Islands on the St. Lawrence River. the ore was dumped into ocean going vessels for shipment to American steel mills at Philadelphia and Baltimore. Later on, a good share of the ore will be put aboard lake barges for trans- I*Drt to Great Lakes steel centers. When the St. Lawrence seaway is developed, bigger vessels can handle the lake traffic. By 1957. the flow of iron ore from the Ungava region will approach 10 million tons a year. The total reserve there is a staggering two billion tons, enough to fight four wars the size of World War II. This country can be thankful that so bountiful a store lies within the protect tion of North America's continental limits. The opening of this field is tantamount to taking out a new insurance policy against the hazards of enemy depredation. Though Baltimore and Philadelphia are being served from Ungava by coast wise shipping, in time of war the Quebec ore presumably could be shipped mostly by rail to eastern centers — however much the cost. This reserve nlus new nroduct.ion of American ores from low-grade tacomte in the once-rich Minnesota region could go far toward feeding the U. S. industrial machine in an emergency. Obviously it would be harder to protect over water supply lines from newly developed ore fields in Venezuela. Tribute should be paid to the men who made Ungava a reality. Some $250 million was spent. The projects'*; managers organized the biggest civilian airlift in history to bring in construction materials, food and other items for the 6000 workers who built the mining site, laid down the railroad and erected port facilities. This was a notable example of free enterprise at its most energetic and imaginative. We cannot forget that before a dream can be realized, it must be dreamt. Men like Secretary of the Treasury George Humphrey, a Cleveland in- dustralist, and Jules R. Timmins had the vision to see Ungava's potentialities. So long as projects of this sort can be brought to fulfillment, America's industrial greatness is secure. Sweetness and Light When a sugar refining company proposed to erect a huge advertising sign near the East River shore across from United Nations headquarters in New York, a great howl went up. The city fathers ignored the noise and approved the sign. But the company didn't care for the sounds of protest. It listened carefully as UN officials declared they would just as soon get their sweetness and light some other way. In fact, the sugar company gave up the idea completely, and instead donated $2500 toward a study of ways in which the East River shore can be improved. Who said the UN. has on power? VIEWS OF OTHERS Type In A Cotton Field Printers are making up an unusual newspaper these days in Gordon County—a newspaper that is 120 years old. Using type excavated from a cotton field nearby, scholars have put out an edition of the Cherokee Phenix, the national newspaper— of the Cherokee Indians. The type was found at the site of the ancient- Cherokee capital of New Echota, approximately four miles from Calhoun. The Georgia Historical ommission now is unearthing the buried city and recreating it as it existed in the 1830's. The Cherokee Phenix was a remarkable newspaper, a product Of Indian civilization at its peak. The scientists working at New Echota have assembled the paper exactly as it was and put the "edition" on display at the New Echota museum in Calhoun. The Indians used an alphabet of 86 characters invented in the 1820's by a half-breed named Sequoyah. Within three years of this invention, more than half the Cherokees had acquired a working knowledge of Sequoyah's written language. In 1827, metal type, bearing these symbols, was cast and the Cherokee Phenix was founded. The pages were made up in columns much like the modern newspaper. The weekly editions were circulated throughout the Cherokee Nation by means" of the United States mail. Before the Cherokees were forced out of Georgia in 1838, they left a surprising record of progress. Their capital city of New Echota—with its Congress and Supreme Court—attests to a high political organization. The Cherokee Phenix if evidence of learning. Georgians are only beginning to unearth the real story of the Cherokees—a story that is amazing and tragic. As men turn the pages of the Phenix, they wonder what the Indian might have accomplished if left unmolested. They wonder what fascinating new things will be found concerning these early inhabitants of Georgia.— Atlanta Journal. Governors Balk President Eisenhower must have been a little surprised when the nation's governors received his proposal for a $50-billion, 10-year highway construction program with something •less than wild enthusiasm. It isn't that the governors don't want the highways; they want the roads, all right, but some want them to be soley a state matter. There is growing sentiment among the governors for the federal government to abandon its gasoline tax and federal highway aid program entirely. Many governors, especially those in populous states, feel that they could get more highways built by levying their own taxes, instead of depending on federal aid for much of of their program. Mr. Eisenhower says he has no specific formula in mind in his $50-billion road program, but he is convinced it is needed. We think he is right, too. The nation's highways are lagging in the face of the biggest movement of auto traffic in history. More highways and more modern highways must be built whether the states do it on their own hook, or whether the federal government pushes the program on a fund-matching basis with the states. — Carlsbad (N.

Peter Edson's Washington Column — Charles Wilson, Industrial Genius, Applies Philosophy to His Job JL JL • JL */ *J By DOUGLAS LAESEN (Peter Edson is on a special assignment). WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Charles E. Wilson, the industrial genius who left the presidency of General Motors to become Secretary of Defense for President Eisenhower, has begun to exert new and unexpected influence on top-level Administrative thinking. Everyone assumed that his sole mission was to infuse some indus- trail-type efficiency into the complex operations of the three services. And he and Roger Kyes, the aggressive first assistant he brought here with him, did just that. They got rid of useless boards and committees. They weeded out civilian deadheads who had been drawing big salaries and merely contributing to red tape. They built a fire under long-delayed plans for reorganizations of the Army and Navy. Their most important contribution in their first few months in office was putting the Air Force's aircraft procurement system on a business basis. It had been chaotic, with no one sure just how many and what kinds of planes were on order and with the production of already-obsolete planes continuing merrily along. * * * As significant as all of these accomplishments was the restoration of positive civilian control of the gigantic military structure for the first time since before World War EL About the time Kyes left to return to private industry, Wilson's outlook began to broaden percept- ibly. There was no connection. Kyes said he was leaving because 'he thought he had finished his job of helping Wilson to at least get the Pentagon on the road toward more efficiency. Most observers have accepted this explanation at face value. The change which has taken place in Wilson since then has been a shift from looking at military matters through the eyes of an efficiency expert to examining them as a philosopher. It's this philosopher's approach, apparently based on his mature years and experience, and a lack of political ambition, which is making itself felt in top-level thanking. The most startling observation Wilson has made, which reflects this attitude, was dropped almost unnoticed at a recent press conference. He was asked: "Can we prevent the creeping Communist type of aggression by military action or by a military posture?" * » * He replied: "If our Army had been twice as big as it is, and the Navy had twice as many ships afloat, and we had a couple of hundred wings of modern fighter airplanes it wouldn't have changed a single thing that has happened in the last year and one-half that I can see. Another 10 or 15 per cent or 20 per cent buildup in the military part of our country isn't the answer to this thing. It is in other areas." Pressed for what he meant by "other areas" he replied: "If I had a real clear program on that now it would be quite a thing. But the men of good will in the world in all nations are going to have to come up with something before too many years." At the same time Wilson went firmly on record to repudiate talk by some military brass urging a preventive war, saying: "We have had two world wars in my time. We haven't discovered how to establish a stable peace after those wars, and I don't think a third world war is any answer to the problem of the world. "I think if we started to study the kind of things that it would take to establish a stable peace after a third work* war, and start to do those things now, maybe you'd never have to have the war." * * * At about that point a reporter remarked: "Sounds like co-existence, Mr. Secretary." He shot back: "I don't like to get confused over words. Do you mean co-existence or co-habitation?" When asked what the U. S. could do to "cool off the friction in the world," he answered: "Make sure that we don't overly emphasize our theories. I don't think we do push them on people, but we are "a little naive sometimes. We j:hink that all we have to do is free the people' over the world and they will „ go ahead and run a free society like we do, or like the other members of the free world that have long records of free institutions to back up their types of society." Wilson has previously said: "We cannot knock out false ideas with bullets; we must counter and destroy them with the truth, with superior ideas and sound philosophy." the Doctor Says- Written for N'EA Service 3y EDWIN P. JORDAN. M.D. It is proper to consider asthma as among the allergic diseases in spite of the fact that sometimes it is not. -Certainly the most important cause of asthma is sensitivity to dust including pollens, moles, household dust and animal dan- ders, with foods and drugs some- imes responsible. The principal feature of asthma is a shortness, of breath with a vheezmg type of breathing. Frequently asthma comes in at- acks with freedom from difficulty n between: sometimes it is con- ,iuous. Mways it is most uncom- 'ortable for the victim and dis- ressing for others to watch. Even when asthma results from ong-time hay fever or some other 'xposure to foreign substances much can usually be done. The first and most important step is to identify the cause. Frequently this can be done by studying the history of the attacks of asthma. For example, a youngster who gets attacks as soon as he starts playing with a dog is in all probability sensitive to the dog dander. Other methods of identifying the cause include: skin tests (which are not always completely reliable) and trial and error exposures of the asthmatic individual to suspected substances. the cause. If the victim can be removed from the cause or the cause from the victim much improvement will result although one always fears the development of new sensitivities. Occasionally someone with asthma can be disensitized by being gji en small and increasing quantity? of the offending substance. Also, since asthma is often complicated by infections, an effort should be made to correct any- tfrng of this sort. Frequently, too, the general health affects the severity of asthma and attention consequently should be paid to this. There are, of course, many medical measures used in asthma including various types of injections, I 1 ie use of iodides and more recently the sometimes highly effec- I tive results of the use of cortisone !or ACTH. Asthma is a fairly common con- dnion and no respecter of age, sex or anything else. It constitutes a problem both to patient and physician. Much ingenuity in management and cooperation between patient a: c physician are necessary in order to bring about the best results. Treatment 'ncludc? those methods which are used for the individual attack and those which are used to try to prevent or lessen future bouts of the condition. The treatment of an acute phase of asthma certainly requires professional advice. The basic treatment of the disorder depends on THE NEW TAX measure in Congress is called an "omnibus" bill.

His only length was in the suit bid by the enemy, and he therefore had no convenient response to his partner's repeated take-out double. For lack of any better response, South had to bid a three-card suit.

That is, the contract should have been unmakeable. Fortunately for South, however, the defenders gallantly came to his rescue. West opened the king of diamonds, and dummy ruffed. Declarer led a low club from dummy Erskuie Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD~~(NEA)— Behind the Screens: "If the star system goes, Hollywood goes." Pulling no punches about the danger, Ronald Reagan, former president of the Screen Actors Guild, laid it on the line: "It isn't so much that the star system has gone or doesn't work," he told me on the set of "Cattle Queen of Wyoming," in which he costars with Barbara Stanwyck. "It's just that the industry stopped working at the star system some years ago and is now reaping a bitter harvest." Argues Reagan: "Only by the contract system, only by building: and maintaining glamor, only by saying, 'Only in our pictures do you see these personalities,' can studios survive. "The wholesale throwing of actors into the free-lance field is the greatest mistake Hollywood ever made. Today a studio can reach out and buy a star, but you can't buy him exclusively. Two other studios and TV may have the same star. So what have you bought?" BOB MITCHUM'S contract with Paul Gregory calls for him to star with Norman Bailer's "The Naked and the Dead" as a second movie after "Night of the Hunter." . .. Elaine Mahnken, Mickey Rooney's frau, dropped pounds and pounds for her movie lead bow with him in Republic's "The Atomic Kid." . . . Pierre La Mure, who authored "Moulin Rouge," and Martha Ellis stopped the love motor long enough to call it off and take separate roads. More like Jack Webb's. Hollywood-strikes-back dept: Mike Mazurki and Henry Kulky, two ex-wrestlers, play the roles of trigger men in "New York Confidential." They're supposed to be ex-boxers in the film and in one apartment scene they turn off a TV 'rassling match because, says Mike, "Them TV rasslers is a bunch of phonies." ANN DORAN, who played Bob Matthias' mom in "The Bob Matthias Story," is likely to be Henry Aldrich's mom in the TV series. Prediction: Grace Kelly's sister, Lizanne, will seek a film career after she receives her degree from the University of Pennsylvania next spring. With the increase of foreign cars in the U.

Note from Paris tells us that Italian actress Anna Faria Ferrera is in the gay city buying a trousseau for her fall marriage to Vittorio Gassman, shed by Shelley Winters because of Anna. Clifton Webb, with 11 more years to go on his Fox contract, will turn director before the pact expires.

West won with the ace of clubs and led another diamond, forcing dummy to ruff again. Now South could lead dummy's ten of clubs to his queen and return a heart towards the dummy. West naturally played the jack of hearts, dummy covered with the king, and East won with the ace. It was now clear to East that his partner was out of hearts and could ruff a second round. East mistakenly thought that this was an ideal time to return a low heart in order to let his partner ruff. When East led the seven of hearts, South put up the nine, and West ruffed with the three of spades. This was the last trick that the defenders could take. West actually returned a club, hoping that hi- partner could ruff. Dummy won with the king/ of clubs, and now declarer was able to draw trumps in two rounds. This left a trump in the South hand, after which declarer could cash dummy's high heart and ruff a low heart, thus establishing the dummy. West gained nothing when he ruffed a heart, since he was merely ruffing a card that South would otherwise have lost to East. Declarer gained by getting one trump out of the West hand on a heart trick that he was bound to lose in any case. After East took the ace of hearts, he could have defeated the contract by leading any card except a heart. All the defenders had to do was sit tight and wait for their tricks to come to them.
