Acheson, Congress Should Meet in Co-operative Spirit Secretary of State Aclieson is said to be sounding out Congress to see if the lawmakers want to meet with him regularly to discuss foreign affairs, in the manner of their recent geUtogetlicr in the capital. This -seems an excellent plan, provided both sides do their utmost to break down the formidable harrier that still exists between them. Not much, headway was made toward a belter understanding in their first, meeting. Next time out the participants will benefit if their conference is less of a performance. The noise and glare of newsreel and lele\'isiou equipment made the discussion itself almost incidental the last lime. For his part, Aclieson in the future must behave less like a professor of international law and more like an approachable human being. There's no excuse for frosty aloofness in a meeting whose whole aim is improved understanding among men. Maybe the next session should be held in a non-air conditioned building in the heat of Washington's summer, so Ihe secretary would have to doff his coat and tie. Then u-e might get the atmosphere of informality that fits the occasion. As for Congress, though it has a right to expect wanner treatment from Acheron, it shouldn't expect him to make over his personality completely to suit tne lawmakers. Criticism of his mode of dress, his n::!in-ill speaking delivery and other per- Iia|i? innate traits are unfair and unwarranted. We've not :l li cast in the same mold; Ihos.e who frown on people who are different just because they're different really arc defining their own Tho !c;;is!;il')is <>v,v it h, the secretary, t'lirUiormm'f-. to prepared to talk about l.he issue at liaiui.

Tins is a promising experiment at lu-idging Ihe gap between ConfresK and the Executive liranch which has so often in history handicapped the conduct, of American affairs. U deserves to succeed. Few Blemishes Mar Record Airplanes are still crashing inlo the sea with tragic loss of life. Against . thai backdrop, it's useful to examine the overseas flying record of the U. S. airlines, which have not been involved in these recent accidents. A government report the other day noted that American commercial craft have been flying across the oceans for 12 years on a regular basis. In that span, they have made more than 61,000 separate flights. And there were only five major accidents in that (>!,000. This is a performance worthy of America's high standards of public transportation safely and efficiency. It demons!rales, too, Ihat ovcrwnter flying is no riskier than overland. In fact, some experts argue (hat weather conditions . and air cm-rents are far worse on laud because of mountains and other disturbing fi'.cloi's. It's probably a more dangerous venture to pile into your car and drive 500 miles lr> visit your family than lo hop to London in a I'oni'-molored transport. WEDNESDAY, .TUNE tl, 19W Views of Others 'Keep on Spending' At Ihe Truman Democratic rally at Chicago the other day I/:on Kcy.scrting. chairman of the President's council of economic advisers, expounded Ihe economic theory that now seems to guide the national administration's economic policy. In effect, it seems lo be simply Unit the deficit. 1 ; can be erased and the budget balanced by continued speiidiujr. While spending for ''useful and necessary" projects, the Trmmm adviser Indicated, tile country ciui increase—maybe within five years—its gross national jjroduct to $300 billion. As production increases, government income will advance to a point Unit will considerably exceed what is needed to get the treasury books out of the "red." The administration conception of a large gross national product is entirely tenable—if that is to be achieved by .inflation. For the first three months of this year (he gross product ran at the rate of S2C4 billion and it, is conceivable that, by stimulating the current boom and Inflating prices with deficit financing, the total product, may be further lifted. But naturally, if there is more price, and wage Inflation, government costs—and expenditures— will go up along with the dollar value of the national product. Mr. Keyserling apparently does not presume that there will be any inflation. But whether the government spending is inflationary or not, he Is dead set against its reduction. For at Chicago lie said that federal spending was wise wherever the government could spent! more advantageously to the economy than the individual, and Ihat If. cold war carts were reduced the money should be spent on "resources development and human security." So, it seems, the government can't spend less even if the cold war abates. And if there is a continuance of the^-prescnt tendency toward Inflation, it must spend more. With the spending theory in ascendance in Washington it ij hard to conceive of the treasury ever having enough revenue to stop the deficits or check the rise in the national debt. Down Our Throats Former Governor Ben Laney predicts that unless conservatives are elected to Congress this year more federal controls will be "crammed down the American public's throal." But when federal controls arc coated with federal money Ihe American public, or most of It. usually opens its throat wide in expansive receptivity. —ARKANSAS GA2E1TE So They Say Anybody Want a Job?

Even when there Is a good deal of polio In a community not every Illness in a child means that disease. Parents, however, should be alert to the danger and should not Ignore any suspicious symptoms. The first symptoms or polio mny be like those of any other Infection. Consequently, although one should not jump to the conclusion that every illness or mild indisposition is polio, wiiniing signs should not be Ignored without making sure that polio is not the cause The beginning signs of polio are likely to last for H few hours up to three or four days. A low fever is common. The victim may complain of feeling dizzy, slight muscular twitchings are common and the child may seem unusually irritable. A slight stiffness of the neck Is particularly significant. However, parents should be careful not to call too much attention to the possibility of stiffness of the neck, as this might cause a suggestible child ularity among all the congressmen and government officials probably gives him more influence in the Capitol than Thomas wields.

As time goes on. stiffness becomes worse in the neck and in the back. The skin is likely to be sore and tender. The muscle weakness or paralysis usually does not show up for several days. Most of these first symptoms may he present in an ordinary cold or many other minor illness. At times when polio Is common', however, they should be considered seriously and the attendance of a physician should be obtained and the progress carefully watched TAKES TIME Even the physician, however, may have difficulty' in making a diagnosis at first. Until a few days have passed it may be hard to tell polio from less serious conditions. the western relch on th* side «f amity with neighbors against which it twice waged world wars of »j. gresslon. Chancellor Kourad Adenauer summed up the action as i.JMrm- niltment on the side of the West against the East, and a contribution to world peace. That's the way it also struck many close observers. Tills historic move came on th» heels of western Gesmany's acceptance of the sensational French Schuman Plan to pool Europe's coal and steel, thereby throwing the vast resources of the German Ruhr into the melting pot with the great French Interests. Thus these two traditional enemies finally have Joined hands at least temporarily to work for peace. Tha London 'limes sums up the development thus: Germans Like Plan "The Schuman plan which, in the German view, Is intended to lay the economic foundation for political union in western Europe, was largely responsible for the Federal German government's decision to accept the invitation to join the Council of Europe. By voluntarily joining it, the Federal German government or fifty million people nailed its political colors to the western mast. "There is no doubt that the present temper of the German people as a whole is pacific and that the Idea of a federated Europe in ,<^f:h they can peacefully deploy fllfjir energies and talents is the one which, for the time being at any rate, has most strongly seized the public imagination."
