For Services Rendered "We must be able to compete with private industry for men of the highest caliber," a. member of the Army-Navy pay committee has said in advocating a substantial pay increase for men in the armed services. This is a problem which confronts not only the armerl fcvccs, bill the whole government. Congress h:is partially solved it by giving itself, cabinet members, ambassadors anil a few others a pay raise, as well as giving Ihe services a substantial boost last year. But it is still difficult to entice the best brains into government service, or to keep them there. Government salaries can never offer the way to fortune, but at least they should not represent so much of a sacrifice that able persons will be frightened away from them. More ado quate compensation is an added tax burden. But if it results in better government and a more secure defense, it is unquestionably a good investment. The Cowboy Crusader The day before Congress reconvened, Sen. Glen Taylor of Idaho, dressed in checkered shirt, cowboy pants, boots and sombrero, rode a horse up the Capitol steps. There he told a small group of passing sightseers that he had . just completed a nationwide peace tour—part of it on horseback. It will be recalled that Senator Taylor -has given non-senatorial shows on Capitol Hill before. Two years ago, when he first came to the Senate, he brought his family and his guitar up there and sang the housing blues he- cause he couldn't find a place lo live. But he seems to have confined himsoll to tha spoken word on his recent tour. "A voice for peace must have .some device to attract attention," ho said, in explaining the rodeo costume and 'the horse. "Peace, it seems, does not make the headlines." Now peace is not a word that requires elaborate definition. But. in order to go along with the senator on that statement, in the face of contrary evidence of actions and sentiments, it might be necessary to know what he means. We do not have transcripts of tile seven speeches which the senator made on his tour. But his views on foreign policy in the recent past have seemed to agree generally with Henry Wallaces So, perhaps, he rCR | lv means that Sen. Glen Taylor's prescription for peace is not headline news. Evidently Mr. Taylor does not think that the Marshall Plan is a plan for Peace, or his remark about the headlines could not have been made. Hunger, poverty, unemployment and other aspects of economic instability lead to political instability. That in turn, i s an invitation to civil war 'and international war. An effort to remove these war-breeding conditions could logically be called an effort in the cause of peace. But the senator from Idaho .seems to think otherwise. Maybe he was deceived by the oratory of Mr. Vishinsky and other excited Russian advertisers of American infamy. They keep harping on American war-mongering and imperialism. But, stripped of their verbiage, there speeches are largely taken up with Russia's strength to meet an imaginary threat—Russia's historic defeat of invaders, her great record in World War II, her vigilance, her alleged dis- • covury of the atomic bomb secret, and so on. One might say that they are doing a bit of left-handed war-mongering themselves. If such harangues have misled the senator into believing Hint he is onu of the few American spokesmen opposed to war, we earnestly hope that he will sit down and read the Russian diplomats' speeches more carefully. If they are not the basis fur his lour, then il is difficult' to c.scape the unflattering conclusion Unit il is Sen. Glen Taylor who must have some device to attract attention and make the headlines. VIEWS OF OTHERS , Scoundrel in Uniform At iast a good piece ol news lias come out about money-grabber Bennett E. Meyers, retired Major General, who used his high position as Air Force deputy procurement, chiet to enncli himself. The Department of Justice will ask for Meyers' Indictment on income tax violations. Attorney General Tom clink snys the government will slart prosecution proceedings as soon as the subcommittee is through with him. So far as the American people arc concerned, prosecution cannot 'bc-Rin a minute too soon. They have Ucen both humiliated :ind I licet lo anger by the disclosures of Meyers' ninny inside deals on wartime contracts. The piirndc ot witnesses shows that he did not slop at behind- the-scenes stock operations and orders to companies in which he was financially interested. lie set up dummy ofliccrs with phony salary accounts so he could rake In big Minis. He tried just about every slick angle that occurred to his greedy brain, The Federal Government should hit Meyers with everything Ihe law alolws. Income tax prosecution should be only the start of it. While Ihe Department of Justice is searching lo see whnt else it may hold this bird lo account (or, the War Department should be combing its regulations concerning ways to punish this retired officer. Although only 52, Meyers retired Aug. 31, 1DW. The cause was physical disability. This fact, taken willi the passage of more than two years, may make it impossible to recall him to active service lor court-martial proceedings. It Is hard to believe, however, that the Army cannot bring Meyers to boo' If H sets out to do so. He draws retirement pay to the extent ot J550 a month. There certainly must be conditions under which a pension can be stopped. It the testimony given to the Senate War Investigation subcommittee stands up—and the witnesses who have told o! loans to Meyers in exchange for war contracts and the income setups refuse to be shaken—then Bennett E. Meyers was a saboteur of the American war effort. At a time when young Americans were dying for their country, this scoundrel was filling his purse, his bank account and his lockbox because of official knowledge. When a group ol purple Heart veterans went to the Meyers hearing, one of Uiem spoke words that would have done fcr millions of veterans. "We heard lots ol gossip about civilian war urofitcers," said T-Sgl. flerman Oretsky. who was injured in the Buttle of the Bulsc, "but someone in the Army—you didn't expect that " Bcimctl Meyers was a long way from the Balile of the Bulge, but he was right up trout In the thrust for the bulging bankroll. 1 —ST.

Written fo, NEA Service ; Some patients suffer from their failure to absorb fat, fit soluble vitamins and certain sugars from food. This Illness, sprue, which follows is treated by special diets and blood medicine with good results, Sprue may develop either us a primary disease or following another condition. Victims are emaciated and anemic, and have a sore mouth and tongue. As the result from an excessive loss of calcium from the bowel, the bones become porous and muscular twitchings and •spasms occur. The cagse of spiu« ic not known but circumstances of ll< origin suggest that it is t deficiency disease It may develop as a result of eating a poor diet, lack of digestive Juices, poor absorption from the intestine or imperfect storage ol Jood stuffs in the liver. Careful Questioning of patienis with sprue usually uncovers the story that they have been eating a diet consisting largely of starchy foods and a small amount of meal. 6tomach and Intestinal upsets, decayed teeth and poor oral hygiene ire common in sprue victims. Sprue may develop at any age. In young children it is called cellac disease. Unless the child's condi- tioif is corrected, It may result in permanent stunting of body growth with bone deformities. Sprue Is difficult to recognize in its beginning stages, although when it is in full bloom there is no other disease which resembles it. USUALLY CURABLE It is curable In the majority of patients. Those who have had the condition a long time cannot be helped as much as those who report early. Liver injections, similar to those used in pernicious anemia, are successful in curing the adult form, although large doses may be necessary. Folic acid, a recent discovery, is also helpful in correcting anemia in sprue. Fatly foods and sugars are restricted In the beginning of treatment. Ripe bananas and banana flour are tolerated when other foods cannot be eaten. As the patient responds to treatment for his blood Uite for another wage increase.
