Caution On Cyprus If ever an issue called for caution and moderation, it is the question of .the island of Cyprus which now is under discussion in London among representatives of Great Britain, Greece and Turkey. Unless reason prevails, the world may witness another explosion of violence on this Mediterranean isle whose history g-oes back to the very roots of Western civilization. Such »n outbreak might bravely damage the fabrics of the West's solidarity. Cyprus, third largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily and Sardinia, is under British rule. Currently it is also the site of Britain's Middle East military command. But about four fifths of the island's 500,000 people are of Greek origin, and the other fifth Turkish. A strong movement exists to give these people the right to choose their political future. In 1950, an unofficial plebiscite conducted by the Church showed 95 per cent of the Greek Cypriots favoring union with Greece. Last December the United Nations received the issue, and the General Assembly voted to postpone consideration "for the time being." Unquestionably, if nothing happens meantime, the U.K. will be asked again this year to act on the matter. The London talks would seem to be an effort to forestall U.K. review by achieving some headway among the interested powers. Britain thus far has refused all demands for self-determination in Cyprus. The arguments are several, but the chief one is that Britain must keep control of the island to safegurd its military establishment there. It has offered the Cypriots a "constitution," and suggested joint use of the base by Greece, Turkey and Britain, most likely under NATO auspices. The Turks support the British. They are said to fear Greek control of Cyprus for strategic reasons, since it lies just 45 miles off the Turkish coast. They claim a natural interest in the island because of its 100,000 Turks. Some evidence exists that Britain earlier consiciously enlisted Turkish opposition to Greek demands. And apparently extremists in Turkey have inflamed popular opinion so that Greek- Turkish relations are now suffering. Greece simply asks that a date for a plebiscite, whose outcome is a foregone conclusion, be sei for some definite time within the reasonable future. At th« same time, the Greeks would assure Britain unrestricted use of its present Cyprus military base, and offer in addition other military rights on the Greek mainland. ' On iU to* tW« frofoiiUo* looki ut- terly fair. It deprive* Britain of nothing but control over the Cypriot civilian population, which thereafter could be expected to be more rather than less friendly to the British military. Certainly others in the West can see little sanity in a bitter bound together in the broad, vitally strategic community of NATO. There must be a way to protect these interests without indefinitely suppressing the aspirations of the Cypriots. As th British should have learned in Iran and elsewhere, unimaginative delay can do irreparable harm. The beginnings of a real solution, rather than another postponement, ought to emerge from the London talks on Cyprus. Letters to The Editor- Dear Sir; It has been some six months since I wrote to your fine paper, or I think I might say our paper, as it has been my good fortune to have lived in Blytheville one year. During this time I made the acquaintence of many fine people. Many of whom I have come to know and have the highest regards and appreciation, and only one has been discourteous. Come to think of it, we might put that in "Believe it or not." I have met men and women of every vocation and to say I love to meet people and converse with them doesn't begin to express the real joy it gives to me. Comparatively few of you know that I am the pastor of Beacon Baptist Church located on 20 and Ash Streets, which was organized less than two years ago. During my short ministry here the Lord has truely blessed our efforts, eighty-three have united with the church. Last Wednesday night we set a goal to pay the indebtness on our property by Nov. 15. The citizenry of Blytheville have much for which to be thankful to the great Artificer. It seems that HE has made,both heaven and earth subservient to our well being. The* fine people, the splendid government, excellent institutions, free enterprise, natural resources and locations, are compatible with the very best. In many ways those of us passing middle age have Within our short life experienced a greater advance in our national standard of living than occurred in all the previous centuries of Western history. Why has the United States become the master technologist, producing half of the world's factory goods, and possessing 80 percent of the world's sold i-ith a. little more than six percent of its population? I think it behooves everyone of us to pause a few momenta daily in the quiet of our homes to praise God and give thanks to Him for those public spirited citizens, who have given of their time, energy, and talent* to make Blyheville what ( it is today. Therefore we should join heads, hands, and hearts in a firm conscientious effort to appraise every opportunity presented in the continued growth and further development of our city, ever bearing in mind, that the well being of any country or city depend upon its relationship to the Giver of "Every good and perfect gift." Sincerely. Rev. J. J. Johnson Full Steom Ahead Peter Edson'f Washington Column — Individual Flood Victims Find Aid in Government Loans, Too WASHINGTON —.(NEA)— Major [hinds are warranted for long-term attention on hurricane and flood relict from Washington has been focused on the big projects. But the plight of the little vi ctims oi' storm damage is equally Important. And what can be done for them is not well understood. This is where Small Business Administration and Farmers' Home Administration disaster loans and Federal Housing Administration insurance on private mortgage loans come in to the picture. Their general purpose is to put people who have suffered storm losses back into the condition they were in before the disaster struck. This is humanitarian all rteht. aid us well as first aid. Most of Ihe recent flood damage was on older and lower-valued property in the low lands, naturally. There is little flood insurance written on such property. If it can be proved that hurricane winds drove the water in, then storm insurance causes may cover some of the loss. Nearly all the damage from hurricane Hazel last year was from \rind. Small Business Ad-j ministration made 13,000 loans for an average $700 to repair damage from that storm.

Marlon Brando and Josiane Berenger have resumed in Hollywood where they left off in Prance. She may even make her film debut with him in his first independent movie. . . . George Gobel's first film, ••The Birds and the Bees," winds up late this month—but it's not the last QI George at Paramount. The studio's already discussing another flicker with him. . . .

"I can't be objective about myself," she told me on the set of "The Man Who Knew Too Much." ( "I worry about everything I do in; every scene. So I made R nactj with Director Charles Vidor. I agreed not to look at a single scene if he would do all my worrying and it worked out just fine." On every other film she's made, j»ys Doris, "I looked at the ru»hes every night and then rushed home to worry." Greta Garbo, in Monte Carlo now, is turning down movie offers from French producers. It's the 10th country in which she's said "No." The first space ship to the moon probably will have QeeGee as a passenger just so she can «ay "No" up there, too. And it wouldn't be science-fiction.

In other words, the Austin School Board is endeavoring to comply with the Supreme Court decision and, it the same time, give school children as much leeway as possible to choose schoolmastes of their own, or a different oclor. This seems to be a sensible approach to the problem. Of course, some organisation, bent upon forcing association of white and. black students to the fullest extent -possible, might create trouble by organizing Negroes to demand wholesale transfer to white schools, should white children in pre- dominatly Negro areas asks for transfers. But such a course would not help race relations, and it is doubtful whether it would receive much cooperation from the Negroes themselves. After all, there are some advantages for the Negro teacher a better chance to hold a job. Many Negro children prefer a predominantly Negro school. Negro objection to segregation has been aimed at the compulsory aspect of it. The Supreme Court has abolished that aspect. If they endeavor to make integration compulsory they will pursue an Inconsistent course that can do nothing but stir up ill will,—Dallas Morning News.

There is one type of disaster victim which government loans cannot help. A typical case would he a retired couple living on a pension in their own home which is paid for. Since the government can make only loans that have a good chance of repayment, it can't help here.

Serving a movie acting apprenticeship for TV stardom is a new switch. Some big Hollywood names have made the career leap but Phyllis Kirk was just another film cutie not too long ago. Maybe you remember her as the doll with the High C scream in that first 3-D thriller, "The Mystery of the Wax Museum.'' Some people fled from theaters after that one but Phyllis fled all th« way to New York. Now TV directors scream for her. A recent Clh'.iax show on CBS in Hollywood was her 40th role in big-time TV drama since she turned her pretty back on movies because: "I wanted to learn something about being an actress." As Phyllis sees it: "In movies you just have to pick up a few tricks and do them over and over again. In TV you have to learn how to act." More movies now that she's a TV emoting queen?

M.D. Notions about what is fashion-, able cannot be laughed off as having no effect on the health. Years: ago, it was fashionable lor women to wear tight corsets which con-! stricted their insides; too tight j shoes, or too high heels have often; brought misery and ill health in; their train. Today, one of the most undesirable developments in this field is the idea that it is unfashionable /or a woman to nurse her own baby. I am unable to say why this has occurred in such a large seg-j ment of our society but it seems' to be related somehow to the false notion that the use of the breast in this way which nature intended may interfere in some manner with sex appeal. When this is the only reason for a mother failing to nurse her infant, it is both a mighty poor argument and an utterly false one, since there is no evidence, whatever that a mother who nurses her child has any less sex appeal than one who does not. When a woman who can nurse her child does not do so, lor any good medical reasons, she is din- playing a type of selfishness which does not speak well for her future or that of her progeny. Certainly the natural source of food during the first few months of life is the mother's milk, Although pediatricians have done a remarkably fine job in working out methods ior feeding infants with cows' milk and various formulas added to It, this method of feeding should be considered only when normal breast feeding cannot b« Accomplished. True it is, that many infnnts do well when not fed on their mother's milk, but it is not true that this Ifl Just »s good as breast milk. Thft latter is the -specific food dwigoed b? nature lor newborn' human infants and it contains the most desirable food elements ne- cess,ary for good nutrition in the early months of life. There are emotional values both to the infant and to the mother in breast feeding; why else would nature have provided this method if it were not the best? The early affection and intimacy between mother and child is almost certainly of value to both. There are certainly some circumstances in which nursing the infant is not possible or advisable. Sometimes the mother does not have enough milk but if she has some it can be supplemented by an appropriate formula. Sometimes there are reasons of health which make breast nursing inadvisable. It is true also, that in some premature infants the weakness of the child makes breast nursing relatively difficult; here a breast pump may be useful until the infant becomes strong enough to nurse. Human milk is still the best food for young infnnts. Besides its food value, it is believed to increase the resistance of the child to its new environment, it U economical, and time saving.
