Boomerang The United Nations disarmament conference meeting now in New York gives the great powers their first real chance to show whether the new international mood displayed at Geneva goes deeper than a mere improvement in the diplomatic courtesies. The Geneva gathering of the Big Four heads of state did not solve any problems. It simply assigned them. The two major dilemmas involve disarmament and the settlement of Cold War political issues, but top priority goes to the latter. These issues, however, will not be dealt with concretely until the October session of the Big Four foreign ministers. This means, obviously, that no big result can emerge from the U.N. disarmament parleys. No one knows whether the great powers are of a mind to accept the drastic inspection controls which alone might assure effective disarmament. But certainly there are not likely to do so in the absence of a real political settlement. The U.N. meeting is not therefore condemned to futility. Despite the fact that the U.N. commission has been laboring over disarmament for almost a decade, there is still some vital exploratory work to be done. The disarmament problem has changed with the passing years. In the beginning, and for a long time thereafter, the United States insisted that rigid inspection and enforcement was the key to any acceptable plan. Today American experts do not think the job can be accomplished by what it once regarded as effective inspection of each country's A and H-bomb output. In the first place, perhaps enough time has elapsed since Russia got into nuclear production for the Communists to have stored critical amounts of nuclear weapons beyond the reach of the most avid inspectors. In the second, some U.S. nuclear spe- clialists are of the view that the processes in this field are now so complex that only a spy close to a nation's top authority could be sure what was happening to possibly decisive stores of nuclear energy. The moment has come, evidently, to face this puzzler full on. For no disarmament plan will be worth its signatures if it does not go directly to this matter. If and when the U.N. commission makes any headway we probably will have learned from the foreign ministers whether progress on the political front will h« possible. One may be forgiven for suspecting that it will t*ke a high d«gr«« at mutual trust on th« political side to produce th» kind of enduring healthy atmosphere in which genuinely workable disarmament might be achieved. Disarmament and Atoms Apparently former President Truman has boundless faith in the campaign tactics which won him re-election in 1948. These were already outdated in 1952, and were no help to the new Democratic nominee, Adlai Stevenson. There is no sign they will prove any more suitable in the developing 1956 battle. Nevertheless, Mr. Truman is sticking by them. He has delivered himself of some hell-for-leather remarks in his best whistle-stop ' tradition, taking broad swipes at President Eisenhower and his administration. What is perhaps saddest is the note of personal bittereness Mr. Truman now allows to supercharge his political blasts. Accusations of "misrepresentation and demagoguery" against the President are extreme enough to suggest a real animosity. Public attitudes toward the two men indicate these comments are more likely to hurt Mr. Truman that the man against whom they are aimed. VIEWS OF OTHERS Southeast Shows Gains More proof that the South is the new land of business opportunity is found' with the announcement that retail sales in Dixie jumped to an all-time high of *18,501,000,000 for the first six months of this year. The South has become the second highest consumer spending area in the nation. The eight per cent in sales enabled her to displace the heavily industrialized Northeast for second place in the naiioii as a whole in dollar volume sales. State included in the report released by the U.S. Department of Commerce are Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, Tennessee. Oklahoma, Texas, the Carolinas and the Virginias, Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky, Arkansas, Louisiana and the District of Columbia. This area's sales topped the corresponding period last year by half a billion dollars. Increases were noted In all lines and all products except apparel which declined by some $3,000,000. Total estimated sales in the South from January through June this year were "comfortably" ahead of the $18,451.000 reported in the Northeast and the S11.691,000,000 m the West. But they were somewhat behind the $23,181,000,000 registered among the retail merchants in the north central region. More retail sales means that more money is in circulation in this area in the nation's history. These facts must be especially bitter to the "industrial North," where they constantly have been the leader in the amount of money spent there. The Northeast section, which the South topped supposedly pays the best wages of any other place in the nation, yet more money was spent here in the South. The success of the region can be pinned down to an increasing industrial growth and an increasing standard of living among the people who reside here. Percentage wise the West showed the best gain with an 11 per cent increase. Evidently the "yodel farmers" are beginning to eke out better livings, and after the abundant rainfall this season, we hope that farm incomes will be even higher for the last six months of this year. The eight per cent increase in Dixie compared with the seven per cent rise in the nation as a whole, and five per cent in the Northeast, Ail of these figures indicate that the south is once again assuming her rightful place in the business world.—LaGrange (Ga.)

'—Now No One Wonts to Fight" TOOK ME CENTURIES TO DO/ELOP- Peter ft/son's Washington Column — Atomic Weapons Are Sparking New Thinking on Disarmament WASHINGTON — <NEA)— Proposals to scrap most of the old concepts about international limitation of arms are expected to be made at the five-power, United Nations Disarmament Subcommittee in New York. All previous disarmament treaties have been based on a numbers game. They have tried to set limits on the numbers of men In armies, or the numbers of ships and planes in navies and air forces. The • 1922 Washington arms conference, for instance, set a ratio of 5-5-3 on the fleet tonnages for the U.S., Britain and Japan. The Japanese broke that treaty in the 1930's and no one was able to prevent it. At the U.N. Disarmament Subcommittee meetings in the last two years, the British and French idea —accepted this year by the Russians—is for armies of 1,500,000 men in the U.S., U.S.S.R. and Red' China, with 650,000 in Britain and; France. j The official American view today seems to be that agreements of this kind are too complicated to be enforceable. The disarmamentj numbers game thinking was | abandoned just after President Eisenhower made his proposal for unlimited aerial inspection to the Big Four in Geneva. Explanations of exactly how this inspection will work are still extremely fuzzy, as made available to this reporter. But the thinking behind the new theory can be given. It is. briefly, that the great deterrent to war today is the atom. Atomic weapons can be used in an initial surprise attack, or lo conduct massive retaliation against aggressors. Unless the aggressor completely destroys the ability of his enemy to counterattack in retaliation, the new theory is that it will not pay to launch, the first attack. Japan, for instance, destroyed the American fleet at Pearl Harbor. But Japan did not destroy American ability to counterattack decisively, and so lost the war. For another, hypothetical example — Russia today might destroy many large cities and industrial targets in the United States by a surprise atomic bomb attack. Still, If Russia did not at the same time destroy the American capacity for massive retaliation, Russia itself would be destroyed. The key to prevention of both the Doctor Says — Written for NBA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN. M.D. Unpleasant problems with the hard of hearing?

A suitably selected night I see halos or rainbows attack and retaliation is therefore said to be an inspection system that will prevent surprise. It Is admitted that many things might be hidden from aerial inspection on the vast land masses of both the U.S. and U.S.S.R. But the new theory Is that it would be impossible for either country to hide preparations for a major surprise attack on a scale big enough to destroy the enemy on the first blow and prevent retaliation. The President's plan, as thus far revealed, does not even envisage banning the manufacture or use of atomic weapons. It merely calls for an inspection system that will reciprocally discourage both aggression and retaliation. Soviet Premier Nicolai A. Buloanin, after the Geneva conference, said he did not think the Eisenhower plan could be made effective. But next day he said he hadn't rejected it. If the Eisenhower plan can be established, the theory Is that a delayed reduction of armament will follow automatically after a time. It is expected to come as the result of realization by the major powers that they don't need as much armament as they thought they did.

Many average players would bid again with the North hand, not realizing that they had already shown the full strength of the hand with the opening bid, and then the partnership would get too high. Even at the low contract of .two spades, South had his troubles. This was because he was playing against experts. Perhaps average players would have given South an easier time. West opened the nine of hearts, and East allowed dummy to hold the first trick. Declarer next led the low club from dummy, and East stepped right up with the ace, capturing the singleton king. East then took the ace of hearts nnd led another heart to give West a ruff. West now returned a low diamond, nnd South had to make an Important decision. Should he put up dummy's king, or should he piny low from dummy in the hope Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD — (NBA) — Behind The Camera: Exterior—Deck of.transatlantic liner: There's no business like movie make-believe business: George Oobel and Mitzi Gaynor are rehearsing a scene for his first film comedy. "The Birds and the BeM," fe deck chairs of a transatlantic Mner. The roll erf th« ship section built on the big Paramount sound stage Is so realistic that Mitzi, spotting a friend behind the camera, puts her hand across her mouth in mock seasickness and grins: "Stick around and watch me turn green." The whole set is built on rollers operated by hydraulic jacks which one man operates, on Director Norman Taurog's cue. by pressing a series of buttons. The labels on the buttons range from "Gentle Roll" to "Violent Storm." The movie is a remake of "The Lady Eve'* and the ship on rollers reminds me of Ace Goodman's quip, "Hollywood is a land of remake believe." Interior — Library: The pretty, almost-grown-up 15-year-old watching John Payne In a love scene with Rhonda Fleming for "Slightly Scarlet" is Payne's daughter, Julie. He's given her the green light to become an actress and she's on the set learning how movies are made. It's obvious Payne remembers when Hollywood profile boys and glamor queens, worried about fan reaction, were reluctant to publicize their children to the point that some of them refused to even admit parenthood. Grins Payne in daughter Julie's direction: "I remember a day In Hollywood when they used to hide kids this size in closets." TV stars are being used in Hollywood these days to bolster the movie box office. Gary Is Flanked by two home- screen favorites playing his attorneys. One is Ralph Bellamy, and the other is James Daly, who won stardom in 39 "Foreign Intrigue" telefilms. Interior—Army Courtroom: It's Gary Cooper, as air-minded Gen.

The scene has lots of evidence in Billy's favor—and lots of evidence of how Interior—Texas Mansion: Rock Hudson is Introducing Liz Taylor, his new bride from Maryland, to his Texas ranch neighbors in a scene for Edna Ferber's "Giant.' 1 Rock and Liz are in the camera's spotlight but there is time-marchei- on drama between a girl and a man in the large group of neighbors. The girl is Jane Withers, the former kid star, now 29, who is playing a character role in the film. The man, in a bit part, is Jack Trent. For 10 years, when Jane was the Little Miss Pig Tails star. Trent was her pistol packin' bodyguard because of a series of threatening 'etters to her parents. Exterior—Los Angeles Ballroom: Steve Allen, as the King of Swing, is signing autographs for a crowd of bobby soxers at the stage door of a ballroom for the musical filmbiography, "The Benny Goodman Story." Watching The Scene is Benny, who provides the hot licks of the clarinet on the film's musical sound track. After the scene Is completed a high school girl not in the movie asks Steve and Benny lor their autographs. They wink at each other. Steve writes "Benny Goodman" in the girl's book and Benny signs the name of "Steve Allen'" that Wests lead was from the queen? South has already lost three tricks and was sure to lose a trump trick, so he couldn't afford to make the wrong guess at this stage and thus lose two diamonds. The reader will have no trouble in making the right decision, since he can see exactly where the ace and queen of diamonds are. South didnt have this advantage, so he had to work it out by logic. East had already shown up with two aces, and South though it was unlikely that East would have passed originally if he had held three aces. For this reason. South decided correctly to piny West for the ace of diamonds. Hence he put up dummys king of diamonds, winning the trick. The rest was. of course, very easy. Declarer cashed a high club to discard the Jack of diamonds, took the ace of spades, and gave up a spade, thus making an overtrick, Exterior—Race Track Grandstand: It's a close-up for Margaret O'Brien and Charloite Greenwood, cheering home a winnning race horse in "Glory." The race was filmed at Churchill Downs and the film will be edited to make It appear that Margaret nnd Charlotte actually are in the stands.
