H-bomb projects going full tilt. Yet, in a closet! committee session, Pike was turned down. He was opposed by Republicans and one Democratic member of Ihe group, but they have . declined to say why in detail. Pike himself said he understood from the newspapers that he has been vaguely charged with "general incompetence." Chairman Brien MeMaiion of the committee intends to carry the fight for Pike to the Senate floor, hi view of the puzzling way in which this case has been handled, a public airing seems thoroughly justified—assuming no risk to our atomic secrets is involved. If Pike's rejection stands it means the vital AEG will be without two o£ its full membership at a critical juncture in U. S. foreign affairs. President Truman has been unable to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Lewis Strauss. The committee's action will not make it easier to find able men willing to serve on this most essential of all federal agencies. Views of Others Korean War Casts Doubt On Excise Tax Bill's Future Nothing warms a congressman's heart like being able to slash taxes in an election year. But unless the current Far Eastern crisis abates swiftly, he may have to forego that pleasure this time. The House, of course, already has approved a bill cutting excise taxes $1,010,000,000. Involved are levies on items like cosmetics, furs, luggage, jewelry, rail and bus tickets, theater admissions, telephone and telegraph bills. The measure does not, however, contemplate a net loss of that size. It provides for a tax hike on corporation earnings of more than f 166,000 a year, and proposes to cVose several loopholes through which federal revenues escape. Whether these features would wholly balance the excise cuts'isn't clear. Originally the Senate promised early study of the bill, but the Korean war has now cast serious doubt on the measure's future. Should the conflict continue indefinitely or spread to wider areas, the demands on the federal treasury are sure to mount steeply. The excise taxes were imposed as emergency levies during World War II. Since that war ended, agitation for their removal has been constant. U is ironic that at the moment that goal at last seemed within reach, a new struggle has intervened. But there is no help for it. To go through with the excise cuts while the South Korean situation is still so fluid might prove an utter waste of time. Congress might have to come right back and impose additional taxes all over again. Senate leaders know this and will bide their time until the outlook is clearer. If the Senate passed the excise reduction bill without waiting, President Truman might veto it. Up lo now he has said he •would veto such a bill only if it failed to provide for offsetting tax gains lo prevent a revenue loss. Rtit the Korean fighting may hftve altered his views on government financal prospects. The idea of pulling up with "emergency" excise taxes purhaps indefinitely is painful to us. all. But there's nothing we can do about it. As we learned from Hitler and Mussolini, when ruthless dictators start running amok, the bills get heavy. Senator Russell Urges Two Parties in South The strong voice of Georgia's Junior senator. Richard B. Russell, has been added to that of other southerners who believe that the absence of a potent second party in the South ha* weakened seriously the political strength of a large and Important region of the nation. Senator Kussell echoes the belief of thousands ot thinking Southerners when he say« lorthrtghtly: "I think that WE have auttered and been neglected and lost our proportionate iUength in the Government of the United Statei because of our devotion to the one-party system." The distinguished Junior senator from Geor- Ela Is confident that a surprising strength would be developed for the Republican ticket in the South if that party were to return to a philosophy of defending states' rights and would nominate on its national ticket men in whom this region had confidence. He expresses, too, a fear shared by many when he says: "If we continue along the present trend to let. both of the great major parties be, in effect, controlled by small minority groups, it will be disastrous lo our form of government." This newspaper has long believed that the emergence o! a strong second party tn Dixie would have the wholesome effect of returning to the South the influence and Ihe respect which it deserves in national affairs. So 'long as the.-South is taken for granted in national politics—so long as the national Democratic party believes that the voters of this region, sheeplike, will follow, whatever policies are laid down by the administration, will be content to accept whatever crumbs of reward or solace the national parly may deem fit to toss Its way —then so long will the region continue as an undernourished political entity with a woefully Inadequate voice in national affairs and in the shaping of policy of the world's greatest nation. The DIxiecrat rebellion does not point the way to the solution of the dilemma. But we believe we shall be on the way to a solution, and to our rightful Influence in national affairs, when the Republican party so sets in order its own house, so shapes Its policies that strong segments of Dixie's voters can conscientiously support its national candidates, and the national Democratic party can no longer take the South for granted. —ATLANTA JOURNAI, 'Ain't No One Here 'Cept Us Chickens, Boss!' •#• UN Authorizes Use Of Flag in Battle DOCTOR SAYS By EDWIN f. JOftUAN, M. D. Written for NEA Serrfce Amebic dysentery Is a world-wide problem. This Is »n unfavorable reflection on our use of modern knowledge since we know how this disease is spread and how to prevent It. The parasite responsible for this form of dysentery travels from the Intestines of one person to those of another. Amebic Infections are spread by pollution and are usually taken into the body by swallowing the drinking water or in the food, and by flies and direct contact. These m'ist first have been contaminated by human waste containing the parasite. The nature and severity of symptoms vary a greal deal. The disease often develops suddenly with pain and tenderness in the abdomen. Diarrhea with bloody'stools is common. who are attacked In his way are extremely ill and pros-rated.

HL-i somewhat ambiguous statement about endors in g Ohio's Sen. Robert A. Taft or Ms opponent, StaLe Auditor Joseph T. Ferguson, has cnused a lot of ducking for cover. R e p u b I icans 'seized the Lausche statement as an Indication that he would endorse Tafb. Democrats Just as promptly belittled the statement. They said it didn't mean anything, because it was so fuzzily worded. Or else that it didn't make any difference. Independents put still another interpretation on it. They maintain that Lausche Isn't particularly interested in whether Taft or Ferguson wins. They say that Lausolie's statement was a typical trick of a past master in political strategy. And that it is similar to the Lausche tactics in the 1948 Truman-Dewey campaign. It Is claimed that all Lausche is Interested in Is his own success. By putting out a somewhat unnecessary statement which seemed to endorse Talt, Lausche was only making a bid for Republican and business of the disease in which the symptoms are far less severe.

Our high living standards, they say, are due in great part to wives to spur husbands on. Of course, sometimes they spur too much. A man gets neck-deep in wifely Inspired luxury. But generally the Britishers observed correctly. When a man takes on a wife, gets a baby and a mortgage, credit at the bank and hits the ball for profit he becomes a capitalist. Underneath it all he needs Incentive. That Is where the wife comes in, if she's a good one.

Did you ever come sailing Into 'our home port after years in a oreien land, and feel the tlghten- ng of your throat as you got the Irst glimpse of the stars and stripes on your native soil? Sure you did have had some similar experience. The call of the flag i» unique; there's nothing else like it. World War I I'm reminded of a little World War I story (possibly aprocryphal but certainly typical) which was circulating at British headquarter! In France just after the first joint Anglo-American attack of history. That was on July 4, 1918, when an Australian-American force went over the top and captured Hamel, In the shell-torn valley of the winding Somme. The Aussies were seasoned veterans, while- most of the Yanks were making their first Journey Into the land of death. Because of this the two forces were mixed, so that veterans and newcomers were paired off together. Lad From Illinois The American half of one pair was a lad from Illinois. He and his rangy Australian comrad fought a good light, and arrived weary but safe and '.triumphant at their objective. From that point the story ran as follows: "This is where we rest,™ decl the Australian as he wiped sweat from his brow with a horny and leaned against an. earthwork. The Yank reached into his Insid* pocket and drew out a tiny American flag which he unfolded carefully under the curious eyes of nil comrade. "My mother gave me that little old flag when I left home, and here's where it flies," announced Illinois. He found k stick lo which he tied the little banner and then stuck his flagstaff into the soft earth. A breeze swept over them and drew the Stars and Stripes out into a fluttering mass of color under the sun. The Australian stood looking on gravely. "Yank.- I've never fought under any flag but my own before." he that's a pretty and—well. finally said, "but Hag and a good I'm proud to be under it now," The big fellow straightened to attention and his lingers swung to his tin hat in salute. He stood at ease again and held out his hand to the American. "Yank, I'm proud to. have fought with you, too.

Written f«f NEA Serrfce Expert Succeeds With Bold Finesse The average player takes many finesses that the expert avoids. The reason Is that the expert tries to develop other rsources in the hope that something tetter than a finesse will turn up. This docs not mean, however, that the expert has no use for'a finesse. In many hands It is the normal play. As a matter of fact, there aie times when the expert takes a finesse that the average player wouldn't dream of. An example of this kind is shown In today's hand. South's Jump to four hearts den from the camera a.- the action showed a very strong hand. It was ,tnni not an attempt to "close" the hand do at a game bid.

Since he could afford to lose only one more trick, the contract seemed hopeless. South's only chance \vns to set up a long spade In dummy and eventually discard one of the losing clubs on that spade.
