Ike and GOP Control- Some Washington observers conclude that President Eisenhower is. making pretty fair progress, all things considered, in his effort to stamp his image upon the Republican Party. Others might be inclined to disagree, arguing that if he'd been tougher he would now be further along toward real command of his party. Whatever the true measure of Mr. Eisenhower's achievements as a party chieftian, this much cannot be doubted: the elements in the GOP which oppose him are not giving up the fight. They are evidently preparing to battle harder for party control next year than ever before. The tip-off on that came when Senator Bricker re-introduced recently his proposal to curb the President's treaty-making powers. As the famed Bricker amendement, this created a vast stir in Congress last winter, and sharply divided the Republicans in the U. S. Senate and elsewhere. Bricker this time has further modified the proposal, which went through several modifications in the effort to push it across earlier. But it is highly unlikely that Mr. Eisenhower and his supporters will find the measure any more palatable in its altered form. Apparently Bricker understands this, as do the many who back him. That means they are ready to fight the President again next year on this explosive issue, with the clear knowledge that it will throw the party into another dicisi- ve contest. Since this is plain, one must assume that Bricker and other non-Eisenhower politicians would not pit their strength against the President unless they believed they had enough to win. They must think that, for there could be no charm for them in the prospect of another losing engagement. Moreover, the President's party opposition—largely conservatives and the more extreme rightists—must also be convinced that supporting one's President is secondary to achieving certain fixed goals. In this evident view, the important thing is the triumph of a set of long held principles. But some Republicans who originally were not for Mr. Eisenhower and who may privately disapprove some of his views do not have the attitude apparenty held by the Bricker and similar forces. These men feel the important thing is to support the first GOP President in 20 years, to help him build a strong record and have a successful administration. These men fortify Mr. Eisenhower'i all-out lupporters. Indeed, they furnish crucial assistance in the effort to set him up as both a national and a party leader. And, obviously, the President will •tt MM Ai4 K« ttft I* whM January comti and ht must once mort contend against those in his party who feel that they—not he—should lead and should determine policy. VIEWS OF OTHERS All is not grim in the Senate, even in the midst of a debate on atomic energy. Albert Gore, Tennessee's able junior Senator, had the floor at one point when the discussion got around to power for atomic energy installations . The following colloquy ensured: Sen Gore—"To compare a 24-hour national defense load of an atomic energy plant with an industrial plant which operates a shift at off peak hours, and to say. . . they are alike, is about like saying that an egg and golf ball are alike on three grounds: One, they are both white; two, they are both round . . .; three, they both have a smooth surface. But ... if a golfer hits them with a club, he will find there is a slight difference." Sen. Estes Kefauver (D-Tenn.)— "That is a very interesting and useful analogy." Sen. Gore—"will not my colleague say it is profound?" Sen Kefauver—"I am very happy to add the word 'profound' ..." Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.)—"When the. Senator was drawing the parallel between the golf ball and the egg, I got the yolk." Sen. Gore—"I hope the Senator benefited from it." The business at hand was resumed.—Chattanooga Times. First Aid On The Roads A man was lying in the rain Sunday afternoon on Highway 74 bypass He had been injured when a tire blew out on his car. A few other cars began to gather. It was only moments after the accident when another man picked up the injured driver and placed him in a vehicle to get to medical assistance as quickly as possible. The gesture wasa thoughtful on the part of the good Samaritan. le was done with the well being of the injured man in mind. But it could have killed the accident victim. Highway Patrol Sgt. James Kuykendall says he knows of any number or wreck victims whose most severe injuries came when well meant assistance was given. A broken rib can chew up a man's insides if he is moved by anything but a trained individual. A compound fracture can be healed by competent medical authorities; handled roughly at the scene of a wreck, the fracture could easily mean the loss of the limb. Somewhere between handling an injured person roughly and rendering no assistance at all there are the rules of first aid. Few motorists know them, and, short of a course, there is little chance for them to learn. It would seem to us that a remedy lies in having every driver acquainted and. placed in all cars or the information could be included in the driver training manual.—Shelby iN.C.) Daily Star Communist Policy Since the pronouncements and action* of Communists should inform us of the way they work and strengthen us in our defense against them, it is significant to note the announcement that came out of a meeting of 150 Communis Party delegates from 25 states which was held in New York City the other day. The Communists announced their political program as including support for international "peace"', amnesty for "political prisoners" Uhe Communist term for spies and traitors of the Algeh Hiss type), opposition to the Administration of President Eisenhower, and opposition to the efforts of Red-hunting Sen. Joe McCarthy. Significantly, too, the Communists predicted a Democratic victory in the fall elections. The ony reason there is any doubt about Democratic victory in November, the Communist statement said, is because "the readers of the Democratic Party have not learned the lessons of '52 and challenge neither the Administration's war program nor its capitulation to McCarthyism." We can understand why the Communists are anti-Eisenhower and anti-McCarthy.—Chattanooga News-Free Press. 50 THEY SAY All available records show that the American people, rich and poor alike, do gamble, whether it's legal or not.—Rep.

E rs/cme Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD —(NEA)— The Men: Mark down 1954 as the year in which Robert Mitchum landed the first movie role in over a decade that warmed the cockles of his stony heart. The picture is "Track of the Cat" and Bob, a champion carper when it comes to scripts, is wearing the look of a Jason who has found the golden fleece. What's more, he's admitting that he's working at the business of giving a bang-up performance and not following the line of lea»t resistance as he's done in recent flickers. "I was just marking time for 10 years," he told me, "I got a lot of terrible scripts and I had to do them. But you just can't steal money from people for doing nothing. It feels good to be doing a fine picture. To take up time just to fill up a theater program— that's not important or necessary." he tall, rugged lad, who photo- raphs exactly like his father, told me on the set of "The Glass Sliper," his second movie. "People xpect me to be just as good an ctor as dad in the beginning. That's a pretty big bill to fill. 'It's going to be a slow training: rogram. I asked for it. I need more self-confidenee and experi- nce." Richard Dix, still remembered or "Cimarron," was against his prig following in his footsteps at irst, but became resigned to it efore his death. The mills that grind out stars will turn slowly in the case of Robert Dix, the handsome, look- alike son of the late Richard Dix. The "Let's Take It Easy" policy, says the 19-year-old, is by mutual agreement with MGM. The Dix name in lights might bring mom and pop rushing to theaters again, but Robert is aware that sons and daughters of oliher top stars have nosedived after being pushed into stardom too quickly. "I have to live up to something," Peter Ft/son's Washington Column — idenc •r m " McCarthy to Keep a Promise WASHINGTON—(NEA) — Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee was properly coy when asked if he would be a Democratic candidate for President in 1956, following his senatorial primary victory over Rep. Pat Sutton. "Nobody has asked me," he said. "I have no plans. But I'm not saying what I would do if I really had an opportunity." Backing into the question from another angle, when Senator Kefauver was asked if he thought the Democratic candidate for President in 1956 hould come from a border state, .he said. "That's where you ought to look, if you want to get the best candidate." While Senator Kefauver is usually a sober-sided and serious- minded man, one of his quietly dry and deadpan gags wowed the Tennessee voters at the end of the _ campaign. Rep. Sutton had waged a rough campaign against Kefauver, accusing him of being an internationalist and a "One-Worlder." The senator admitted he was an internationalist—even bragged about it. But he said he was no "world wonder." The gag around Washington was that Senator Kefauver had flown back to Washington in a transport after his primary victory, having demonstrated that a man can't make it to the capital in a helicopter. It was a crack at Rep. Suton, who had campaigned by helicopter. Hauling Wisconsin's Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy before the Watkins- Johnson committee to answer the charges made against him by en- ators Flanders, Fulbright and Morse in a way merely carries out the promise which Senator McCarthy made to testify on these things during the Mundt committee televised hearings. On June 9, during an exchange with Senator Symington of Missouri, Senator McCarthy Said: "Now while I think it would be completely irrelevant to go into the Benton charges, the Maryland campaign, may I say that if we can induce the senator from Missouri to tae the stand here and take the oath, I will consent here and now to be questioned in detail about all of those Benton charges, the Maryland campaign, .everything else." Senator Symington never took the stand to tell what, if any part, he played "in trying to induce Secretary of the Army Stevens not to testify" before the Mundt committee, which Senator McCarthy was needling hyn about. But Senator McCarthy again finds himself on the pan, to be questioned in detail, as he said, about ex-enator Benton's old charges against him, and "everything else." Secretary of Commerce Sinclair Weeks is one of the most loyal of Harvard graduates. He's almost a "professional alumnus." Nobody ever accuses him of letting old school ties influence any of his government decisions, however. And the three men who are his personal assistants and really run his office are all Yale graduates. They are William S. Kilborne, Jr., B. Allen Rowland and Richard L. Hall. Reports from behind 'the Iron Curtain indicate that the Communist officials are 'concerned about the spread of jokes which poke fun at the party. To curb this laughter, the Commies have now created the "Joke Squad" to police Russian humor. * Duty of the squad is to travel around the coffee houses or wherever people congregate. One of the squad will tell a funny story, with the Communist regime or some high party official as tee butt of it. Other members of the squad then take down the names of any persons who laugh for later punishment. Sen. John Sparkman of Alabama is recognized as one of the more liberal Democrats, but he still has plenty of Dixie in his blood. In a recent debate, en. Prescott Bush (R., Conn.) started to ask, "Does the senator from Alabama realize that the Yankee ingenuity—" "The what?" cut in Sparkman "The Yankee ingenuity," repeated Bush. "Let me state that is the first time I have ever heard the word used in that way," replied Sparkman. "Let me say to the senator from Alabama that in saying that, he shows a complete lack of familiarity with New England, because Yankee ingenuity is something with which everyone should be familiar/' said Senator Bush proudly, proudly. To which Sparkman answered, "But I wasn't paying any attention to the word 'ingenuity'.' " turn a club. This allowed declarer to take the last two tricks with the queen and ace of clubs. South earned a very good score for winning 12 tricks, but he had to admit that his own fine play was only partly responsible for this good result. East should have won Lhe first trick with the ace of spades and returned the queen of spades at the second trick. He would then have ont trick safely in and could wait for a duo trick to come to him eventually. The difference between winning one defensive trick and winning two of them would have been quite important in tournament play. Q—The bidding has been: THE YEAR OF the big decision ,as started for Michael Wilding— the third and final year of his MGM contract—and he's saying of the future: "It. depends on what happens in his year. MGM has the right to eoption me at the end of the mite, ut what happens otherwise hangs )n the kind of stories they give me. I had no picture during the first year of my contract. Now I have four and "The Scarlet Coat' coming up. "I'm happy in Hollywood. My wife and child are here. It's my lome. We'll see what happens." Asked about a costarring film in the crystal ball for Mike and his glamorous Mrs. — Elizabeth Taylor, the Britisher shrugged: "I don't think so. I'd be rather nervous about it. She likes drama and I like comedy, though I'm. aware that the light touch seems be exclusively in television, these days." VQJ84 4KJ971 4 A8 North-South vul. North Ea*t South Welt If 2 * 2 N.T.

JORDAN, M.D. I It is perhaps unnecessary to devote a full column to the subject of today's first inquiry although several -rrespondents have inquired about 't. Q_What is hlstoplasmosis? I have heard of the disease but have been unable to find anything about the symptoms, treatment or dangers. A.J.A. A—This is a widespread but not extremely common infectious disease. It seems to be most concentrated in the central Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys. The responsible parasite frequently attacks the lungs without causing symptoms and may show up in the mouth, throat, or elsewhere. The disease usually results in enlargement of some of the lymph nodes and c in usually be diagnosed either by a skin test or a test of the blood. Treatment is not too satisfactory though local lesions in the mouth may be successfully managed with radium. The outlook Is good in those forms of the disease involvir.-; the lungs, somewhat questionable where the symptoms are located in the mouth and rather poor in those small number of cases where the disease gets spread throughout the entire body. Q—Are a Wasserman test and a Mazzini test used for the same purpose? Mrs. C. A—Yes, both are used to test for the presence of syphilis. Q—Is there anything I can do to keep my husband from drinking beer which he does all of the time and does not eat? Mrs. M. A—It is doubtful that (here is any drug which you can put in his beer which will make him stop. If to Arm* b««r »o4 Mi eat it almost certainly will make him sick. Perhaps you can persuade him to get help from a psyciatrist or to join Alcoholics Anonymous. A—What is the effect of the drug called paraldehyde on the nerves? Mrs. L.S. A—This has some pain-relieving properties and tends to relieve "nervous tension." Q—What ex ises can one take to reduce the size of the knees and hips? Mrs. P. A—There are no exercises that are considered effective in this respect. Q—Flcv» ~ive me some information on geographic tongue. B.P.' A—Geographic tongue is considered rei&tively normal. It is characterized by slightly elevated, irregular, gray rings surrounded by reddish areas on certain portions of the tongue. It tends to come and go and may make the tongue somewhat sensitive but is of little consequence and doe* not require treatment. Q—Is it injurious to take mineral oil every night upon retiring? E. M. A—It is not advisable. It may irritate the intestines and interfere with the absorption of certain vitamin? Q—How much water should a person drink every day for good health? Should one leave it up to nature or force oneself to drink when not thirsty? Mrs. H. G.

The jump overcall is used by mostexperts to show a strong hand, but some of the best players use such a bid as a mild shutout. In this case, East intended his jump bid to make matters difficult ] for his opponents. As a matter of fact. South did have a problem. For all he knew, the best play for game or even slam might be in one of the red suits. Nevertheless, South properly decided that no-trump was most likely to be the best game contract. West opened the deuce of spades, following the practice of many advanced players of leading low from any three-card holding in partner's suit. East played the nine of spades, and South won with the king. East's play oi refusing the first trick would have been perfectly reasonable in a total-point game. There was no way to defeat the contract, and it didn't much matter whether East played high or low on the first trick. Since the hand was actually played in a match - point game, however, East's play at the first trick was a decided error. South won the first tricj with the king of spades and saw that he could easily win nine additional tricks in the red suits, together with the ace of clubs. South pro saving a spade and two clubs in each hand. East was likewise obliged to save one spade and two clubs Thereupon, South 'led a spade to • »o* »n4 forced BaM * *•• South West North 1 Spade Paes 3 Spades ? 3 You, South, hold: Spades Q-J 9-6-3-2, Hearts A-8-4, Diamond Clube A-K-3.

Answer Tomorrow SHELLEY WINTERS might not dig it, but Tab Hunter is saying: "I'm not a star. Billing doesn't make you a ar." Even with a top role in Warners' "Battle Cry," and with contract guarantees that his name will be written in big letters over the title, Tab is remembering: "My first role was with Linda Darnell in 'Island of Desire.' The next year I couldn't get a job in Hollywood. Then, in 1953, I did three pictures for Edward Small. I've needed the work badly. People think you're fabulously rich when you get star billing. They don't think you need to earn mon-1 ey." Youngest of the Adonis group in Hollywood—he's a mere 23— Tab has » chest-heaving love scene with Dorothy Malone in "Battle Cry" and is waiting for the verdict on whether he's too much Clark Gable's junior to be acceptable as a screen lover. "I had a horse in one plctura and a, radio In another,' 'says Tab. "I'm glad, to yet a woman la a picture for a change." IT HAPPENED one day at Paramount as a guide was conducting tourists through the Cecil B. DeMille bungalow. The group passed down a corridor known as DeMille's Hall of Fame featuring framed stills from the 69 movies he has made in 41 years. "If these walls could only talk," said a tourist. "All these stars. What stories they could tell." "I can hear them all now," said the guide.
