But despite all, the organization was effectively put in being and latest reports indicate it is not far from achieving the reasonable goals set for it last winter at Lisbon. U. S. officials at the Pentagon say the objective of 4000 combat• ready aircraft by Dec. 31 will be missed by only five or sLv per cent. "She aim of 50 land divisions, 25 fit for combat and 25 in reserve, iWill be "comfortably close" to fulfillment. By this Pentagon men ."mean the 25 combat-ready units Will be fully manned and equipped f and the 25 reserve units will be well on the way. These figures are somewhat tentative. The complete and e.xact ' state of readiness achieved this year will not be known until NATO • holds a meeting Dec. 15 to set fresh goals for 1953 and 1954. • • • P ENTAGON OFFICERS DECLARE NATO commanders are happy both over the quality of their troops and the kind and amounts j of their equipment. They stress it never was an Allied goal to match , Russia and the Iron Curtain countries division for division. The intention was and is to deter the Soviet Union from aggres- |,sion by creating a force which, in combination with our atomic •potential, would be of sufficient stature to convince the Reds that : any invasion would be ruinous for them. If the 1952 goals are even roughly approved, this constitutes ; substantial accomplishment. The record of 1952 should serve as a :'healthy guide to NATO planning for 1953 and beyond. It should serve also to notify the Kremlin that the West, for all ;its intra-family differences, is capable of doing what it sets out to do. ;The story of NATO to date ought not to be lost on Moscow as a j lesson of what would lie ahead if Russia and her compulsory friends I dare to move aggressively.

KI.1C FEATURES SYNDICATE. 1^. ypKLP KICHTS gg-SERV^D FUNNY BUSINESS By Hershberger *'Joe's just like a boy with a new toy—his kids are in college and he can use the car again!" # Muriel Lawreiiee The Mature Parent GIVE JOHNNY THE ADULT FACTS ON PERILS OF CROWD' WORSHIP By IVmRIEL LAWRENCE He's a boy who's been trained to hold on to what he knows. Recently he attended a big teenage party. At midnight he asked for the telephone to tell his parents he'd be later than he'd planned. After making his call, he returned to his companions to be greeted with derisive jeers. "Why didn't you tell them to mind their own business?" he was asked. "Why didn't you say you're gonna live your own life? What's the idea accounting to them for what you do?" As I said, he's a boy who has been educated to believe what he knows, not what other people know. So he grinned at his mockers and said pleasantly, "You're nuts. I called my parents because I like them." If anyone had had a pin to drop I'm told all could have heard it. Hostility toward us is increasing in young people. Do we know it? Are we aware that our adolescent child's "crowd" may gripe a good deal about fathers and mothers? That Johnny may need real help in separating his feelings about his family from his "crowd's" fashionably angry ones about theirs? We have been repeatedly told that adolescence is the age of revolt. Now let the experts sound off on what this expectation of rebellion can do to us. Let them say, "Your expectation of revolt can betray you into accepting degrees of it that, are not normal, not reasonable, not wholesome. It can beguile you into answering not your child's gripes, but the gripes of the Toms, Dicks and Harrys that compose his 'crowd.'^ "It can lure you into defending yourself against complaints blown up into solemn indictments by your child's acceptance of mob feeling and thought. Admit your mistakes — but don't take responsibility for those of people who live seven blocks away. Don't let Johnny kid >ou — or himself either." Much of this teen-age resentment is due to changes in family life. Time was when Johnny's friends were brothers, cousins and the kids who lived down the road a piece. He worked off steam by helping his father with the plowing and his fun was created by what went on in the family buckboard on the way into town to the church social. His loyalties were clear and nobody challenged them. Now he lets off steam by getting tickets for speeding. His fun is manufactured by Hollyyood and jukeboxes. His friendships are decreed by the mandates of "crowds" whos loyalties are anybody's guess. He's out on his social own before he's ready for it and his values are chaUenged every day of his life. That's how it is, whether we like it or not. As species survive by adjusting to changed environment, let's adjust. Let's give Johnny the information he used to have no use for. Let's give him the adult facts on "crowds." Let's tell him what can be done by many angers gathered together in one place. Let's say, "Unless you know how they can exercise a mesmeric influence upon you, what you know you can be distorted and subverted right before your eyes so that you think and feel with the mob's identity instead of your own." Juvenile "crowd" worship is a dangerous worship. When it came to full flower under the Nazis, Nobel Prize winner Thomas Mann wrote of it: "The group is comfortable compared with individualism, so comfortable as to be loose. What the Collectivist Age wants is the perpetual hohday from the self. What it loves and insists upon is intoxication. The young care little .where the crowd leads them. The ecstasy of escape from the I and its burdens is an end in itself." Johnny's group relations offer him more than "acceptance" by the Toms, Dicks and the Harrys. They offer him the chance to be arlow The World Today Privote Lives Are Entongled In Bitter Campaign BV .JAMES MARLOW W .-\ S HIN GTO N. (AP) — Pe rson al bu.sinos.s and private lives have becomt^ so ontanc:!od in the presidential campaign that there's a chance thi.s ma>' turn into one of the bitteri'st in history, Votri's who- thought in the beginning thoir only problem was choosing botwcen the candidates and parties on those original issues, now uill find thorhselves influenced by attitudes, personal revelations and perhaps more public disclosures. Sen. Rirhard Ni.\on. at the very moment he was pleading for his own political life Tuesday night before a national TV audience, did his best to drag Governor Stevenson and his vice presidential running mate. Sen. John J. Sparkman, into the flypaper. « • » WHEN THE DISCLOSURES .ABOUT iN 'ixon's expense fund— S18.000 donated by Californians— began to break last week, Stevenson suggested no one judge the Republican vice presidential candidate until ail the facts were in. Ste\'enson's forcbearance didn't prevent Stephen Mitchell — his own-hand-picked chairman of the Democratic National Committee— from trying to make political capital out of Nixon's dilemma. Mitchell demanded that General Eisenhower fire Nixon., As he ended his own defense Tuesday night Nixon shifted to the offense. Suggesting that Stevenson and Sparkman make their "financial history" public, he said if they don't "it will be an admission they have something to hide." This ought to keep things stirred up a while, since now every- I one will be watching to see uhat Johnny, to test what he knows, what he has proved abovit loyalties and to defend his findings. For his own sake, he'd better not muff it. Sulfas Help Brlghf.s Dlspjisn Caused l>v .Vinito Infections Nr-:PHRltlS. or Bright's disease, is a result partly of inflammation and partly of degeneration of the It interferes with some of the functions of the kidnevs. Richard Bri.ght, for whom the disease is named, was born in Bristol, England in 17S9, and was graduated from the Uni\ersil\' of Edinburgh in 1813. He was one of the famous men attached to Guy's Ilospital in London, which is one of the famous voluntar>' teaching hospitals situated in that city. Ills classic report on nephritis appeared in ISliT. In it he pointed out the connection between dropsy (or edema), the presence of albumin (a kind of protein) in the iM -inc, and hardened or shrimken kidneys. lie even found that there was an excessive accumulation of a substance called urea in tho blood of patients with the particular- condition which he was studying. Nephritis, unlike a great many other disorders of the bo<iy, is not really a single disease. It can come on without any apparent cause or it can follow acute infections such as scarlet fever, tonsillitis or pneumonia. Just how these infections produce Bright's disease and they do no"t alu-ass cause this ditticuU.\'—is not quite cleai'. There is often (luite a long time between the acute ititeetion and the appearance of the first signs ol nephritis. It remain.-; tor future research to discover the was' in which nephritis is brout^ht about and to improve the means \enting this complication. The trouble in the kidnevs is not alwa\s the same. Sometimes one I part of the kidney is damaged i more than another. .Sometimes the I damage seems to be so slight that : it halts bcfoi-e s\'m!)toms begin to ' show up. At other times the condition may Stevenson and Sparkman do and sa>\ if an\ thing. In the past week N'ixon. repeat- jpdly saying he didn't want to use the taxpayers' money where he could help it, pointed out that he could have had extra family income by putting his wife on his office payroll, which would have been legally,, morally and ethically all right, since it is not unusual practice in the capitol. * * * BUT AT THE SAME TL-NIE. NIXON repeatedly has mentioned that his rival in this campaign, Sparkman, has had his wife on his payroll. An Illinois Republican, former Sen. C. Wayland Brooks. Tuesday called on Stevenson to get out of the race. Several stories began breaking earlier this week about funds Stevenson had collected as governor of Illinois to supplement state salaries of some of his appointive officers. Acknowledging this. Stevenson said it was no secret and not improper. He pointed out none of the recipients were elective officers. He said the idea was to help relieve the financial strain on high salaried men who had given up their jobs to help him run the state. So far, as this fingerpointing gets worse and worse Eisenhower, the war hero, has been untouched, ilf it gets much worse, it's almost 'too much to expect that someone won't hit him with a mud-pic. progress gradually over a period of months or years, destroying more and more of the functions of tho kidneys. When this happens there is a constant worsening of the symptoms. Burdon on Kidneys A reader asks if the di-inking of beer has anything to do with nephritis. Boer alone proliably can not cause a true nephritis, but if taken in considerable quantity, it throws an added burden on the kidneys, and would therefore bo considered inadvisable, as a rule, for a person with Bright's disease. ' It looks as though there will be fewer cases of nephritis in the fu- tiii-o because several of the diseases commonlj' causing it, like pneumonia and scarlet fever, yield quite well to the sulfa drugs or [x>nicillin.
