Case of Nearsightedness Young Governor Ribicoff to Connecticut, as a Democrat, naturally counts heavily on labor for political support. Recently he risked that backing by criticizing the organizing tactics of certain labor leaders in his state. j Speaking at an AFL meeting, the objected to CIO pamphleteering which declared that the union organization would "connive, persist, annoy, anything to get what you have a right to have." The able governor said flatly he would fire outright anyone caught "conniving or annoying" in any department of his state government to assist the CIO in its efforts. One would imagine the AFL might find it possible to support his protest against this questionable lanugage. But federation instead sent apologies to the CIO because Ribicoff had spoken from its platform. / *y_r i-r-e talking here about just one organizing pamphlet in one campaign. But there is an important principle involved, as Ribicoff saw. What the CIO pamphlet says is that the end justifies the means. So long as the cause is just—fair wages, hours, working conditions—then "anything" may be done to advance that cause. It is a peculiar kind of thinking that would lend sanctity to conniving or any other dubious tactics simply because the declared goal is good. Labor leaders too often have been guilty oft his kind of thinking. 'Since they came to great power in this country, they have indulged in many excesses in the name of the "people," only a part of whom they in fact represent. When called to account, they leaeders self-righteously decline to acknowledge any error or transgression. Wrapped in the protective garment of the "people's" cause, they ask instead that laws which govern others not be applied to them. Ribicoff is to be commended for speaking out for principle, even while a guest in labor's own house. The labor leaders' reply seemed only to reaffirm their original position — that the end justifies the meani. The Distant Precincts Cambodia, one of the slate of Indochina, is a place quite remote from our imagination! her* in America. All w« know, really, is that it is important today because it in in the line of Communist pressure southwestward in Asia. But, having acknowledged that, we are bound to pay some attention to events there which appear to affect the region's power to resist encroachment by what* ever me»ni. ' Consequently, Ain«ric*nt mu«t voic* I thunk* th»t former King Norodom Shi- hanouk h»s won a smashing victory in a Cambodian election. He had left his throne to submit his policies to the test of the polls. We can be grateful for the turn toward democratic processes, for one thing. There is not too much understanding in Asia of democracy as the West knows it. Any sign of its growth must be welcomed. •Secondly Norodom is a friend of the West. And he has managed to maintain this highly helpful posture while still defending himself successfully at home on the charge that he is a mere Western puppet. VIEWS OF OTHERS Positions Differs Anyone reading the political news these days is bound to be somewhat confused by the conflicting views of Democratic leaders on the issue of tax cuts vs. budget balancing next year. Yesterday, for example, former President- Harry S. Truman came out flatly against a tax cut at this time, saying the time to reduce the national debt is when the nation is prosperous. At the same time Sen. George Smathers was telling an audience at Madison, Fla., that he" would personally support a tax reduction for individual income tax payers in the next Congress. There is no question that Truman is on sound ground when he advocates paying off debts when money is available, instead of postponing these obligations and taking a chance on bankruptcy when money is scarce. But with a presidential campaign just around the corner In 1956, it is virtually impossible to avoid a contest between the practical politicians of both parties trying to take credit for a tax reduction. If such a contest develops, it will be good-by to budget-balancing hopes. The' two philosophies are perfectly illustrated by the statements of Truman and Smathers. Truman, on the one hand, is speaking from the safety of the sidelines, while Smathers, on the other hand, Is a candidate for re-election and a vice-presidential nomination possibly to boot. — Miami Herald. Farm Life The startling mechanization of American agricultural life ifi underscored by the announcement that 93 per cent of the nation's farms now have electric power. Only 15 years ago it'was 30 per cent. The familiar and memory-stirring phrase "down on the farm" no longer means quaint old institutions like the" Spring house, the wood stove and kerosene lamp. J .; Like the average city home, the rural residence is now, in a great many instances, a place of wonderful gadgets and conveniences. Modern plumbing and refrigeration are the rule, not the exception. Electric stoves and irons and the latest in television sets are common to our rural neighbors. And most wonderful of all, the farm home and other farm buildings have the latest in electric lighting. Many of these farms are reached over modern hardaurfaced roads. They are often tilled with the latest in agricultural machinery. The average farmer, we will admit, does not lie on a bed of roses. Fluctuating prices, variations in weather and other headaches are with him always. However, his own hard work and technical know-how from the outside are making life much easier for him and his family. We hope that even greener pastures are in his future. (N.C.) Citizen-Times. How Dumb Can You Get? Education is a fine thing. We ought to have more of it, and it looks as if we will. But the women ought to find some better way of concealing their mental improvement. If they don't they'll have trouble catching husbands. That's an old saw, you might say, this business of men not wanting their wives to be smarter or better, informed than they. But the figures support it. At all age levels past 20, single women have more formal education than their married sisters. Some of them may think the smart thing is to duck marriage.

First Faint Flicker Peter Cdson's Washington Column — Refugees Are Big Headache In Egypt-Israeli Settlement WASHINGTON —(NEA)— It is impossible to put any kind of a price tag on Secretary of State Dulles' plan' to settle the Arab- Israeli war. In his speech before the Council on Foreign Relations, Dulles was merely outlining American objectives in bringing peace to the Middle East. This would involve resettling the 900,000 Arab refugees in the area, fixing permanent borders between Israel and the Arab states, then, through the United Nations, guaranteeing those bpr- ders against aggression by either side. But Dulles had no detailed plans in his hip pocket on just how these things would be done, or how long it would take to do them. Aside from the emotional, nationalistic and religious factors involved, the magnitude of the problem can best be gauged by what the United States has already put into this-area. Up to July 1, the total was more than 640 million dollars. .Israel has received 368 milion dollars. Aid to the Arab countries has been 278 million dollars. The resettlement of these Arab refugees is the thorniest problem in establishing a Middle East peace. Thore are now about 880,000 refugees. But the birth rate in the camps is so high that they are increasing by 25,000 a year, refugees have rehabilitated themselves in Jordan and Lebanon. They were largely the more prosperous Arabs 01" the old Palestine who got out before the Israeli occupation. But there is now no place for the camp refugees to go. The Arab countries simply can't absorb them. Jordan will give them a nationality status, but Jordan's only resource is the Jordan Hiver and it is not developed to provide jobs. Syria has given temporary work permits to some 80,000 seasons 1 workers. But Syria has balked at taking the refugees permanently The Syrians say that liquidating the refugee problem will liquidate the problem of Israel and they apparently don't want that on the present basis. Lebanon, now closely balanced between Christians and Moslems, fears to take in more than the 100,000 refugees they have so far absorbed. Egypt has cooperated on resettlement in the Sinai area. But Egypt is already overpopulated in the Nile valley so can't take more there. Iraq took back 5000 refugees with her army after the Palestine cease- fire. But Iraq already has a couple From 50,000 to 100,000 additional million of her own people on a low standard of living, and can'i take more, Iraq's oil does give her some wealth, however, and her economy is expanding. As nev. jobs open up, Iraq is taking refugees, currently at the rate of 200 a month. In the face of this situation, only possibility of resettling the refugees is on the desert land where they now squat. The only chance for this is through the Jordan River Development plan which Eric Johnston has been trying to I get Israel and the Arab countries to accept. Ii would cost an estimated 120 million dollars. It would provide temporary common labor construction jobs for perhaps a hundred thousand workers for the three or four years required to build the dams and irrigation projects. After that. It might provide 300,000 permanent jobs on farms or in new related industries. But there are strong fears thai trying to force a peace settlement now might endanger the Jordan River project. Supporters of this plan think it should be established first as a working reality before trying to tie it in as a condition to a general peace settlement in the Middle East. the Doctor Says'— Written for NEA Service By EDWLN F. JORDAN, M.D. Deficiencies in most of the senses, such as seeing or hearing, constitute serious drawbacks to Mrs. F.D. A—I cannot give a good explanation though there is no ques- human activities but one of them—i tion that it does happen this way. the sense of smell—is perhaps rela-; Not only are some more suscepti- lively less important. I ble than others but people vary in Q-Dp to the past six or seven a single lifetime in the frequency years I had a keen sense of smell now only occasionally can I detect an odor. Will you kindly discuss the sense of smell?-—Mrs. F.B.S. A—The keenness of the ability to detect odors is certainly much greater in many of the lower animals than it is in human beings. A large portion of the head of an animal like the dog, for example, is given over to the snout which contains nerve endings which receive the sense of smell; no human being can match the dog in ability to detect odors. The point is, I think, that the human sense of and ease with which they catch cold. Probably, it has something lo do with resistance or immunity of the individual, but .there are not any good methods of measuring this quality—or of increasing resistance to colds. Q_Please say something about pinkeye.—Mrs. N.J.B. A—This is a highly contagious form of conjunctivitis produced by a germ. It Is treated by simple soothing preparations and recovery without complication is the rule. The principal importance is the speed with which it spreads to oth- smell is already rather poor andjers unless great care is used. Is probably made worse for many j of us by smoking, lack of use, overpowering odors in the surrounding atmosphere, and perhaps other factors. For one whose sense of smell has become lessened, as in the case with Mrs. S., there really is not much to suggest in the way of treatment unless some specific disease process, such as a. sinusitis, can be identified and corrected. Q—Please say something about osteoporosis, its cause, and its cure.—Reader. A—This Is a condition in which there is a lessening in the density of the bone. Since this can result from a number of causes there is no single treatment. It may be due to defective bone formation, disuse, injury, or lack of normal hormone secretion. It sometimes occurs in malnutrition and can be present' as the result of unknown cause in such disorders as acrome- galy (this may be classified as a hormone disorder also). Treatment, therefore, depends on identifying the particular variety of osteoporosis and using methods which are indicated for the underlying diAorder. The results of such treatment, therefore, will vary widely. Q—Con you explain why some people catch colds wisily and oth- •rs i c 1 d o m or not at all?— A MOTHER writes an expert on child guidance that her little gir! has two very annoying habits, she sucks her thumb and wants to spend all day In the kitchen.
