Worth-While Point 4 Plan Burdened by Dull Label Seldom in American history has a program with high aims had a title so sterile and empty-sounding RS "Point Four."' The average American can be forgiven for yawning unashamedly at its mention; What is it? A plan to give backward undeveloped parts of the world the benefit of this country's technical'know- how in health, sanitation, farming, and other fields. It could be a mainstay in the free nations' fight to check the flow of communism into poverty-stricken regions. The program acquired its dry- as-dust name from the fact President Truman, in his inaugural address in 19<J9, listed it fourth in a series of proposals for world peace and recovery. Congress already has aulhori/.ed the plan and its initial funds, so the case /or it need not be argued as a general idea. But if it is ever to be what it promises, some meat has got to be put on the dull bones. Secretary of State Acheson, whose public utterances are not often eloquent despite his incisive mind, nevertheless made a start in this direction in a speech the other day. As he sees it, the world has now grown too small for any powerful, healthy country like the United States to view without worry the existence of areas plagued by disease, poverty and ignorance. Trouble spots anywhere can become dangerous to the strongest na- ions. "\Ve must make the world understand that it is not only the Communists who will send people out to live among them," he said. "We, too, are willing to send out our people, not to spread ideology but to do things, not to oppress or rule them but to help them." I'he program needs specialists who will go into the backward lands fired with missionary zeal, with a willingness to endure hardships to "carry on a people-to-people kind of diplomacy." As a small sample of what could be done, Acheson noted that a handful of export outsiders had in four years cut malaria rate in Greece from 2,000,000 cases a year to 50,000. He added: "If you could improve the quality of rice seed in Asia, you would almost solve the (Asiatics') food problem—it's that simple." Cast in these tangible terms, the program takes on vivid life and impact. That's the way this story must be told if it is to win the full support of the American people, as it must to succeed. This more human approach should be continued; and the next step might be u new tille for the program to gut it out of the realm of the textbooks. This Modern World According to American belief, when you mechanize any area of life you introduce a laudable efficiency whose benefits are unmistakable. There is evidence (hat you also introduce new risks of trouble, which can prove very inefficient. We had n little example of this the '•other night at Cleveland. The management of the Cleveland Indians had been worried because its baseball gamea, like those elsewhere in the majors, seemed to be dragging out interminably. Ag a speed-up measure, it put a jeep on the field to haul relief pitchers from the distant "bull pen ' On the evening in question, the system appeared to be going smoothly as a Cleveland hurler piled into the jeep for his joy-ride to the mound. But, halfway in, the fate (.hat governs the machine world struck hard. The jeep ran out of gas. Pushing it wouldn't work," so the humiliated pitcher had to climb out and walk the rest of the way. That's the sort of thing you let yourself in for when you rely on machinery. Views of Others Steadier Jobs In urging employers to study steady year- round employment and do their best to achieve it, the social security committee of the Chamber ' of Commerce of the United States has done an indispensable service. Steadier jobs arc good for both worker and business, in removing periods of no pay, want, and anxiety, they lend to make better nnd healthier homes. For the employer they mean lower cosLs. A number of companies have recognized the Hdvnntftgcs nnd found ways to effect regular employment. Some J have giiincd notable success. But In too many instances, as the chamber of commerce report comments, the problem o t steadier jobs has not always had systematic, continuing attention from top executives. The chamber's social security experts accordingly recommend that the president of a company appoint ft steadier jobs committee composed of top executives, with at, least one member ' each from the sales, personnel, and production departments. The committee should study company policies and possibilities and meet regularly, they advise, and then, to give a practical program, they outline 30 techniques and devices designed to reduce short-run unemployment. When management uses Is opportunities, mora stabilized employment will result. —Christian Science Monitor An Income Xqx Loophole Although the treasury's revenue gain is not expected to amount to much—merely about $3,000,000 a year—in this clay of mnltibillioti dollar budgets, we are pleased to-note that the House wnys and means committee has decided to plug the lax loophole of certain motion picture producers and stars. Wednesday the committee voted to outlaw the "collapsible corporations" by which they have been avoiding payment of personal income taxes. As the scheme has worked, a few producers ami their star uctors have created temporary corporations that are 'dissolved after one film has been made. Incomes from this film, under the new system, are taxed only as capital gains— not ns personal incomes. 'The secretary of the treasury told the committee of a case where a producer, who used the coIEapsible-coropration device paid only $154,000 tux on a $615,000 income. As personal income, subject Lo normal tax, the producer would paid $-145,000. The treasury now Is 'contending in the courts that the temporary, corporation scheme is illegal even under existing law, —New Orleans Times -Picayune So They Say It's the Same Thing, Only Different ' HOP ON A 1 WANNA /VMKe SOME Korean Crisis Rests On Shoulders of UN Peter Edson's Washington Column — Dirksen Relies on Hard Work To Spill Scott Lucas in Illinois SPRINGFIELD, III.—(NEA)—Ex- Congressman Everett M. Dirksen is running all over the state in his campaign to defeat the incumbent Democrat, Scott Lucas, for U. S. senator from Illinois this November. Up to the April 11 primary, Dirksen held 580 political rallies: He hopes to hold that many more between primary and final election. Dirksen has already scheduled thrce-a-duy — morning, afternoon and evening political meetings for September and October, the last two months of the campaign. He is trying to speak to as many non-political organization meetings as possible, In order to reach the non-Republicans who aren't already convinced that he should be elected. So he talks to women's clubs, parent - teachers' associations, farm meetings, Rotary, Kiwanis and the service clubs, to Germans, Poles, Danes, Elks, church groups, Irish unionists, the many Negro organizations in Chicago's colored wards. In the fall he'll hit the county fair circuit. It is a tough life, though perhaps no tougher than that faced by any other political "out" trying to defeat an "in," Dirksen. looks fine, fie has fully recovered from the illness and eye trouble which forced his resignation from Congress two years ago. His baritone is strong. He is tanned. His hair Is a lit tie grayer, though just as unruly as when he waved his mane In the well of the House in Washington, He beams on the platform. He greets local candidates and celebrities with n heartiness that Is somewhat overwhelming. To the ladies he Is courtliness itself. Too Busy to See Daughter Graduate On most of his Journeys up ami down the state, he .travels by car, to save money. Mrs. Dirksen drives for him. She also serves as his secretary. When he wants to handle mail, he drives the car and dictates to Mrs. Dirksen. They were so busy campaigning that they couldn't attend the recent graduation of their daughter Joy, from Bradley College in Pcoria. Joy understood. Dirkscn never has to read speech. Tills makes him an effective campaigner. In Congress, Dirksen was one of only about three representatives who could command the undivided attention of ; he House when he siwke. The other two are Speaker Sam Ray-burn aiil James W. V/ndsworth of New York. Dirksen carries with him at nil times a little black loose leaf note- The DOCTOR SAYS By EDWIN >. JORDAN, M. D. Written for NEA Service Psoriasis Is one of the most common skill diseases. It-is usually harmless so far as life or general health is concerned, but is disfiguring In many cases. Only a small part of the skin may be affected or it may cover almost all of the body surface. The most common locations are at the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back. The eruption may begin suddenly or It may start with only a few spots oa scattered parts of the body. The affected area Is usually bright red. scaly, and flat. There is a sharp line between the Involved skin and that which appears completely normal. Psoriasis may gradually spread or stay In the same spot. Itching is unusual In the chronic cases which are the more Common; in the acute cases, however, itching Is frcqucnt.,The skin which has been involved for a long time usually becomes covered with a thick scale, and if this is all removed by scraping, tiny bleeding points appear underneath. Unfortunately, like so many other diseases of the skin, the cause of psoriasis Is not known. Members of the same family often have psoriasis, however, so that many doctors have commented on the family tendency. There are a good many treatments which have been tried which seem to bring about good results at least temporarily. In fact, psoriasis one of those diseases for which several new treatments are reported almost every year. A large num- br of these have not stood the test of time and therefore one should be extremely cautious about accepting the value of any new remedy for psoriasis. The most commonly used methods for which many skin specialists throughout the world have reported good results are coal tar ointment, and ointment called an- thralnie,, exposure to ultraviolet rays, and occasionally X-ray therapy. Chronic Form In many rases of chronic psoriasis, good results may come from book. His staff says he has about j nny one of the different treatments, 70 of these little black books now. They're kept up to date with facts and figures. And when .Dirkscn wants to make a speech on any subject, he can cite from the book, ad libbing between citations. He shoots straight from the lip. So far in the campaign, Dirksen hasn't'had to get too specific on most, issues. Dirksen's program won't be spelled out. In full, till after Labor Day. In the hot summer months he believes it will be hard for the voters to grapple with deep issues. He is convinced, however, that the campaign will be fought out on national issues—Washington issues—and not as a conflict of personalities. Among the issues he has touched I the psoriasis goes away and later retv.rns. When the same treatment which produced good results the first time is tried again, nothing may come of it and a new method has to be attempted. For these reasons, psoriasis is often an extremely discouraging tning lor patient and doctor alike. 75 Yeurs Ago Today Mr. and Mrs. Jonn B.

Direct armed Intervention by either Washington or Moscow in Koera would be almost certain to produce the war which, nobody wants. It may be splitting hairs rather fine, but the provision of military supplies to the Koreans —either north or south—isn't placed in the category of armed intervention technically. Presumably this was the background of yesterday's action by the Republican members of the U.S. Senate, meeting in caucus in Washington. They voted that Korean incident shouldn't be allowed to involve the United States In war. although this country should pjW^de milit°ry supplies and other a^Rfor South Korea. U.S. Supplies American supplies are being rushed to Southern Korea from Japan, but* President Rhee yesterday described this aid as "too little, arid too late" after the Russian-backed Communist Invaders Irom Northern Korea threw a tank column to the outskirts of Seoul, the Southern capital. Rhee said he didn't mean it looked like failure for the Southern cause at that juncture, but.tha country was "very hard up because aid was slow in coming." In any event, the only satisfactory solution would be to halt the fighting altogether, and that would have to be done through concerted ctlon in the United Nations. Some suggest it might be handled by leriiation. President Truman has pledged the full support ol lh« country to U.N. efforts to end the "unprovoked aggression." He' "added: ........

Another Crisis The current position reminds on* of another Far Eastern crisis which the League of Nations encountered back in 1622.

But the league was too timid to meet the crisis squarely. Japan's only punishment was condemnation and she resigned from th» peace organization. . . . Tills failure of the league -to measure up to the situation waa credited by many observers with having much to do with its loss of face and ultimate demise.
