Primary Puts Warren In National Spotlight Gov. Esrl Warren's tremendous vote• getting performance in the California primary once more stamps him as a man with a bright future. Because he piled up nearly twice as many votes as James Roosevelt, the Democratic nominee, he must he rated as a distinct favorita for re-election to a third term us governor this,fall.- VAnd if Warren does capture this prize again, he will establish himself as a big factor in the 1952 Republican presidential race, whether or not he" chooses to be a candidate. By 1952 California's huge population gains will be translated into more than half a dozen new seats in Congress, which means in turn that its delegations to party nominating conventions will be swelled by perhaps 14 to IB. It' will pack almost as much weight as New York and Pennsylvania. Should a. victorious Warren decide to run for president, he would, of course, command this strength for himself and would likely have the Washington, Oregon and perhaps other western delegations in his camp as well. Though xuch a beginning would be no guarantee of his nomination, it would put him in a very strong bargaining spot. Warren's voice would have to be reckoned with in the final GOP choice. This would be true, indeed, even if he controled only his own big delegation. A Warren triumph this November would have the same import for the Republican future as would a victory for Gov. James Duff's hand-picked successor in Pennsylvania. Warren has been a progressive governor who must be classed with the liberal wing of his parly. The same holds for Duff. Together these two could go a long way toward blocking the 1952 nomination of any man they felt did not reflect their own progressive seuti- > ments. Warren's primary showing thus strengthens the hand of GOP liberals continuing a trend that has been unmistakable throughout Hie primary balloting of 1050. His fall opponent, Jimmy Roosevelt, will be no push-over. For a time it looked as if Warren might repeat bis feat of 1916 and capture both GOP and Democratic nominations for governor—which is possible under California's cross-filing system. But Roosevelt, fortified by an intense street-corner campaign, proved too strong for that. Roosevelt undoubtedly will wage a fall campaign with similar energy. But lie will have a few handicaps. President Truman hasn't forgotten that Jimmy wanted General Eisenhower for the 1948 Democratic presidential nomination. And many leading Democrats within California are not enthusiastic over their nommw. On top of those drawbacks is the powerful evidence of Warren's hold on Californians of both parties. The governor polled well over half a million votes on the Democratic side. Roosevelt has a big task cut out for him. Chance to Ward Off Strike Since Walter Reuther, head of the United Automobile Workers, already has announced that his union's next big goal is the guaranteed annual wage, here's a. suggestion: Why not initiate an impartial background study of this plan now, before the heat of next year's bargaining battles puts too high an emotional content into the argument ? We ought to have learned something from the bitter debate that surrounded the pension issue as it hit major industries on a broad scale for the first time. On the one hand, we heard from managamcnl that labor's proposals might well ruin business. On the other, we heard from the unions that management's views were utterly destructive of workers' welfare. Inevitably the bargaining will take this kind of extreme turn again, unless perhaps both sides—and the public as well—can face the annual wage proposal forearmed with all the relevant facls. How has the annual wage idea work- .ed where it has been applied thus far? Does it fit small companies and large alike? Must special market conditions prevail to support it? There are but a handful of the questions that ought to be answered well ahead of the point where emotion enters the bargaining picture in full force. Views of Others Down Payment On Socialism. Arkansas ha* 12,118 federal employes, He- cording to the latest Census Bureau count. This figures out to a little over six for each 1.000 of our population, a small number In proportion 'to the national average o[ something more than . 12 per 1.000. But the total Is much higher than the 8,045 employes of the state government. It's more than the comblnd count of 7,013 city and 2,642 county employes in Arkansas. There you have a faint indication of how the federal government has bulged mil over the nation. t Some of those federal workers are as necessary ax any other workers In our population. Others are a part, of the costly human fringe of regulating and meddling which has been embroidered onto the essential business of national government. —•-• • All public payrolls, federal, state and local, now support over six million workers. Add the throngs who get subsidies, benefit payments, pensions and the like from the three levels of government, and you have about 36 million of the country's population drawing tax money. And the cry Is for more. Where will It end? That's for you, the citizens, to decide. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT ACWA Goes to Work The Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, 375,000 members, has gone to work for the industry it represents. That means the bosses, too. It has begun a million-dollar promotion campaign to sell more clothes. Its goal is one new suit a year for every man, twice the volume now sold. Maybe the union has something up its sleeve which doesn't meet the eye, such as cramping nonunion manufacturers or unionizing the non- unionized in the clothing field. But its principle of promoting what it makes is healthier than periodic union principles of not making anything. The eleven billion dollars lost directly or Indirectly through- strikes since 1038 could promote a lot ol merchandise. ACWA says in effect: "We will .produce more atid sell more, instead of striking for more." There is no argument in that theory. Everybody gains. —Dallas Morning News So They Say The strength of our Air Force at the pre- .sent time is not sufficient to continue an all- out air war lasting more than a few months.—Air force.

The Simple, Direct Method Britain's Coal-Steel \Balk Causes Concern The DOCTOR SAYS The sex glands In both men and women are relatively inactive during the early years of life, start functioning during adolescene and reach a peak in a few years. For many years thereafter there is little change. In women the functioning of the sex glands starts to lessen as a rule hi the early 40's and takes several years to complete. In men the question of functioning of the so.x hormones is even more complicated. Medical opinion Is somewhat divided as to whether or not there is a rapid decrease in the functioning of the se.x glands ill men B*.- Peter Edson's Washington Column — Reduced Post Office Service Here to Stay, Officials Assert Bv DOUGLAS LAKSKN" NEA Staff Correspondent (Peter Edson is nn special assignment.)

Janet whispered back- tage at Los Angeles' Philharmonic uditorium. "She told me not to worry even if my pants fell down n front of the audience." Even when the malice-drippers ask her about the film version ol 'South Pacific." Janet smiles: "I think Mary should do it." Janet doesn't simper or get starry-eyed when people tell her what lucky little thing she Is to be in he road company of "South Paci- ic."

Others believe that at least in some men a decrease in functioning of these glands may come fairly rapidly nnd produce symptoms which justify speaking of a male change of life. They believe that men go through this period somewhat later than women do- usually between 45 and 55. Many men do not have any symptoms at all which can be attributed to decreased functioning of the sex glands. Those who do, however, may according to those who believe in a rapid change. have one or more of several symptoms. Some describe a distinct feeling of tension with a sort of inward feeling of trembling, which is made worse by excitement or fatigue, exaggerated and unfavorable news. Arguments or slight disturbances which would not bother a person ordinarily may cause them to become nervous and flurried. A great many men during this period may be restless and complain of sleeping poorly. Numbness and tingling of the hands or feet is common. Headaches of various kinds are a frequent complaint. It is claimed that the memory becomes poorer and the ability to concentrate impaired. A mild feeling of depression also seems to be common. Dizziness, palpitation of the heart, cold hands and cold feet, slight shortness of breath and sudden flushing of the By DeWlTT MacKKX/IE AT Foreign Affairs Analyst Surprise and shocked concern, to put It mildly, have been paused fn Western capitals by the action of Britain's ruling Labor fSocialist)^, Party in calling for that countij^p. to eschew further plans for European political and economic union until continental nations ha\e adopted socialism. This would, of course, put sn ideological damper on concerted ic- habilitation projects like the sensational French Schuman plan for the pooling of Western Europe's coal and steel. Indeed, this sweep- Ing proposal for unprecedented cooperation, which has aroused so much hope and optimism arrong the Western powers, seems to he the immediate objective ol the.So- cialist declaration. The French Foreign Office, which is headed by Foreign Minister Schuman, expressed astoiish- ment at this British declaration. American officials it) Washirgton orivnlcly voiced sharp disappointment.

After cutting the leter rate to 3 cents that year, free city delivery was started in 1863.

ThB reason for this may be explilned In the Labor Party statement; regarding further programs for European political or economic unicn. This emphasized that European inlty Isn't an "overriding end In ItKlf" and : that national sovereignty snd Britain's obligations to her commonwealth must come first. The party admitted that International planning of Iron and s:«el is the key to economic unity" but said "such planning will be worse than useless if It Is inspired, like the cartel of the past, exclusively by the desire for private prtfit."

When Joe actually pJayed the hand, West led the queen of hearts, and Joe won with the ace. tie immediately took the diamond finesse, losing to Easl's king. East cashed (he king of hearts and returned a. club, and South was obliged to finesse. The club finesse lost to West's king. South liter had to lose a trump trick to West when the trump finesse lost. Jo you see how the hand should have been played? Decide for yourself before reading on. South should refuse to win the first trick. When West holds the first trick with the queen of hearts, his best play Is to switch to diamonds Immediately. Declarer must put up the ace of diamonds at once. (If he finesses. Bast wins with the king of diamonds and returns a club, whereupon South loses the contract.) After winning the second trick with the ace of diamonds, declarer takes the trump finesse, losing to West's king. West's best chance is to lead another diamond to East's king. East then returns a club. Now, however, South does not need a club finesse. He takes the ace of clubs, draws the last trumps, cashes the ace of hearts, and ruffs a heart to get to dummy. Mow dummy has good diamonds on which South can discard his losing clubj.
