Sir Anthony's Warning It comes as something of a shock to hear such harsh criticism a« hag been directed recently against Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden of Britain. He has been getting it from both sides—the Labor party opposition and some members of his own ruling Conservative party Sensitive to it, Eden felt compelled to deny that he would resign his post. Actually according to the belt informed observers, there never has been the slightest prospect of his quitting, nor is the opposition to his stewardship considered truly formidable. But it has been highly vocal, Conservatives have hammered him for alleged timidity and indecision. Certain leading journals have chided him on the same score. Laborites have dwelt on the emb'ar- • rassing disclosure that surplus British tanks have found their way to Egypt and Israel via Belgian and French middlemen. The reason all this must be set down as a surprise is that for long years Eden seemed a man almost perfectly cut to the pattern of prime minister. His experience, particularly in foreign affairs, was vast. His grasp of vital issues was firm. He had a reputation for courage born partly of his refusal to accept appeasement in the days of Hitler's power. The accident of history had forced him to dwell long in the shadow of Sir Winston Churchill. But it wai widely believed that he would measure up to fullest expectations when his chance came. Perhaps the long period of "apprenticeship" worked a certain damage on Eden'* power of resolve. For the itemi now being cited are only the lastest in • rather lengthy catalogue that has been compiled lince he took office from the •ginf Sir Winiton. Nevertheless, the respect for him within hit own party and within Britain , i» still far too great for him to b* in ser- tovM trouble BOW.

Fet*r»bur» In • «uit by tome Negroes to fain admiuioo to the city's while iwimminr pool. It K a defense baaed on "a practical busines* policy" and It sounds like an effective one. What the city says, in brief, i» that it operates the pool in a proprietary capacity out of the revenues received from the pool and not out of tax money; that therefore the pool must either operate on a self-sustaining basis or be closed; and that if Negroes were admitted to it, white patronage would ceaae with the result that it would fail to meet expenses. Bolst«rint this contention Is the fact that the city did operate a pool for Negroes from May through September and that so few used it that it operated at an 86 per cent loss during that period. It finally wa* closed for lack of patronage — although it was located in the center of the Negro residential are*. m regard to the white pool, the city'*-brief says that charges »re made "for the use of such facilities and under the law the City of St. Petersburg has the right and duty to operate said municipal spa beach and swimming pool as would a private corporation as a business enterprise." On this ground it bases its defense .contending that the exclusion of Negroes from the pool Is simply a matter of "practical business policy." It supports its contention that the admission o! Negroes to the pool would cause white patronage to cease by pointing out that segregation in Florida "has become through the years an accepted social usage and custom so pronounced that it is impossible to bring an abrupt change in social custom." This is the first time, so far is known here, that a defense of segregation has been based on the ground ot Its being a "practical business policy." — Fort Myers (Fie.) News-Press. Thin Skating Democratic Governor Harriman of New York ii jumping on President Buenhower for not having engineered ehaniw in the Taft-Martley labor law. He's skating on pretty thin political ice. Tail-Hartley was passed in 1841 during the Republican 90th Congress, gaining majorities of both the Republican* and Democrat! then seated. The Democrats promptly made its repeal a plank in their 19*8 platform and repeal or modification has been high on their list ever since. The record reveals however, that nothing of significance has been accomplished in this direction, though the Democrat* have controlled Con- .tolled Congress most of the time and had the White House from 1»41 to 1953. . Democratic Congresses were elected in IMS, 1WO and IBM. Wnoe the Taft-Hartley enactment, the lota of shortcomings and it's fair for the rivals to point them. out. But neither party has done a blesed thing on Taft-Hartley and neither should don the shining armor and make smug pronouncements about the other's failure in that field. —Greenville (8. C. Piedmont. Worry and Age Men should not worry about their advancing age. Instead, advises Dr. W. H. Rice, chief surgeon of the Armco steel corporation men should "be, and enjoy being, your age." Worry doesn't make men any younger, and may age them beyond their years, the Armco physician told a Chicago audience. To slow the effects of age, men should also avoid overeating, enjoy adequate rest and use alcohol and tobacco in moderation, he counseli. Well, that sounds fine, but the good doctor forgot to supply the answer to on« punier: What to do about the man who^s constantly reminded of his age by a wife equally conscious of h«r own fleeting years. Miybe the unfortunate chap in this category should simply ksep a set of ear plugs handy. —Jackson (Miss.) State Times. Wardrobe With Wow One well-known designer ot women's clothing has given her perception of female wear in tht year 2000. In a capsule, she predeicts that the fairer sex will don glorified Bikinis all the time. Other fashion experts chimed in with her opinion. Be it so, we think health standards will rise among the male population before that time. Many men may give up smoking, drinking, arid overworking—hoping to survive until the turn of the century so they can see for themselves. But wait a minute!

But today twin torrents of double-talk emerge .from the commu- nlts mouthpieces, put of one side of the mouth corhe charges that the United States Is preparing for a new atomic war. Out of the other side come cooing professions of Russia's peace-loving intent. For instance: The new Russian budget Is pre- from visits to the "friendly" countries of India, Burma and Afghanistan, so '.t was » "mission of peace." Christmas broadcasts are beamed from Moscow by the Russian orthodox clergy t- the people of Italy, France, Scandinavia and "other Christian brothers, all over the world." Peace prizes arc distributed in Bulgaria. In Peking, on Christmas Day a treaty of friendship between Red China and East Germany is signed. Peace Is urged on the ceonle of Malaya. how it changes when the references are to America: In connection with U.S. Admiral Arthur Radford's visit to Iran, the Russian news agency Tass reported that "It was decided to supply Iran a large quantity of arms." And when Rear Admiral Dudley, American naval commander In the Mediterranean went to hunt ducks on the shores of the Caspian sea Tass reported: for strength ning naval forces i! northern Iran will be drawn up. 1 The visit of U.S. Army Secretar; Wilber Bruckev to Viet Nam i branded by the communist radi in Hannoi'as part of an America plot to use Southeast Asia Treaty Orgfnization troops for "a north ward march," to break the armistice in Indo-China. From Peking, a broadcast is monitored saying that Secretary o: State John Foster Dulles' recent statement to the NATO Council violated the Geneva spirit and intensified the cold war. The failure of the Foreign Mini ,11 ters meeting is blamed on U.s , p e unwillingness to give up its pollc to of strength. And Dulles and h c followers are said to be "intenslf; is ing preparations for a new atom war." From Bucharest, Rumania, an „ other broadcast Is reported sayin in that the current American buslnes boom benefits only the America , n companies producing war mute rials. The American people are said be "constantly Impoverished b NATO military expenditures." In a Moscow broadcast to th Middle East, the-United States accused of "wanting to turn Othe countries, and among them Turke; into mere fields of military ope atlons." Still another Moscow broadca accuses the U.S. of trying to for a new "Northeast Asia alliance to promote aggressions by Sou! Korea, Formosa and Japan. Such an alliance Is inconceivab in the Ilrst plnce, and needless say, unheard of In Washington. Building of the first postWa tank In Japan is noted in English broadcast from Moscow An erica. But the outlook for th nev year in- Russia Is presente as "confidence in the triumph peace." All these recorded broadcas are too much of a pattern to b coincidental. They Indicate a di bolically smart campaign whic the United States now has to ove come the Doctor Says — Mrs. A. J.' asks for a discussion of iritis, particularly its possible causes and treatment. Certainly this serious eye disease deserves attention. It almost always causes pain, watering of the eyes, sensitivity to bright light. If it goes on too long it can lead to poor vision or even loss of sight In,the involved eye If iritis begins suddenly the symptoms are likely to be worse than in the chronic variety, but, recovery usually comes more rapidly, perhaps in a few weeks.: The pain is likely to be severe, and worse at night. Touching or pressing the eyeball is very; painful.. , , , iritis 'Is sometimes associated with rheumatism, diabetes, tuber-! culosls, syphilis or injury. It is most important toat.the cause of the iritis be discovered whenever possible. . .,.'•• Tnt diaeas* producing the inflammation of the iris must be treated as well aa the eye Itself. Th*. March for infection elsewhere in the body must be carried out painataklngly and thoroughly. But sometlmtt no cause whatever can b* found. .WTun proper treatment is begun •arly, th« Iritis often clears up completely, but complications and th* possibility of chronic Inflammation art dangerous possibilities. The ey« 'itself requires highly skilled treatment, Including the u>« ot drugs, heat applied locally, rest and protection from light. Somttlmes a method called foreign protein therapy has been found helpful In Iritis. Thtt consists In Injecting some protein substances (boiled milk Is an example) which produces ,a reaction In the body, usually with fever. This seems -to stimulate resistance and often has n favorable effect on the iritis.

This despite the fact that she las long been one of the screen's best dressers. You can see her tonight In four fetching outfits as she costars In CBS' "Blithe Spirit" with Noel Coward and Lauren Bncall. "Oh, you should know the trouble I've had over those four dresses," signed Claudette at a luncheon on the veranda of her Holmby Hills home. "Nothing but fittings, fittings, fittings. It drives me nuts. When I think of the amount of time I have spent in my lifetime over clothes! "It simply Isn't that important to me. Clothes never have been. If I had'te spend as much time on them in my personal life as some women do. I'd go to Tahiti and wear a Mother Hubbard." Fancy duds are important to Claudette professionally, but she maintains a slimmer closet than a lot of the other glamor girls. "I don't have nearly as many cl6thes as a lot of producers' wives," she remarked. "If I have any reputation as a dresser, it Is for conservative clothes. I think It's smarter to avoid the high fashion. Unless there is a sweeping change in style, you can usually wear a dress, for five years or more. And I often do." She said she owns, about eight evening gowns and an equal number of cocktail dresses. She rotates them and cares not a whit if friends recognize them — "you can't be expected to have » new dress for every occasion." You can understand why she buys them and keeps them.. An evening gown can run from $800 to $1,000. Her favorite designer was Adrian, who is now retired from feminine fashions (he designs only men's ties and shirts now).
