Golf Cleared of Guilt It was ironic that President Eisen- however was stricken at a time when he was pursuing a relaxed vacation schedule designed to keep him out of trouble with his health. It was ironic, too, that this should have happened but a few days before he was to preside over a meeting on the general physical fitness of the American people—to be attended by leading spe- and athletes. Undoubtedly some Americans may have wondered whether the President may not havee played too hard in trying to escape the burdens and tensions of office. They might be asking: "If there was a chance something like this could happen, why was he allowed to play all that golf?" Dr. Paul Dudley White, Boston heart specialist who flew to Ike's bedside after his attack, spoke of this matter in his highly informative report on the case. What he said is not only helpful to an understanding of the President's ailment but could be a useful guide to countless Americans in their middle and later years who might have doubts about the place of exercise in their lives. Said Dr. hVVite: "Now I kow there is a likelihood of some people thinking that the golf he (Mr. Kisenhower) played the day before his illness might have been instrumental in production of this attack . . . "But 1 have a feeling, I believe (this has had) no influence .... We see attacks in people who never played any golf. -My own feeling is that golf has often been wrongly blamed, that those who play golf and have attacks at the age of 65 might have had an attack at -15 if they hadn't played golf. "Well, that is the present situation. We just don't know, but we don't think that exercise itself is responsible. In fact, 1 am of the impression that it really helped to delay the onset of this (rather) than to cause it." What the doctor said is I hat consistent exercise may have added greatly to the President's useful days by warding off potential trouble. It may even have saved his life, since no one can say how much more severe his heart attack might have been had he not tried to keep his body as mobile, supple and relaxed as possible. The best way to get steady exercise, of course, is to take active part in sports. The President obviously is a great believer in this for himself, and for all Americans. People in this country have for too many years tended to satisfy themselves by watching other« engage in sportu —professionals and highly skilled amateurs. If anytli ing, TV has made the matter worse. Now millions don't even get the exerciM of walking to th« bM«- ball park or the football field. The President's experience contains a lesson. And Dr. White's words on the subject of exercise are advice that all our maturing folk sh'ould ponder. VIEWS OF OTHERS One Hopeful Indication We don't often get good news from the FBI in these crimepackeri postwar years. But recently we did. Major crimes in the United States declined in the first six months of 1955. II was the first improvement of that sort since 19-18. In the intervening years, the figures have always headed upward. The crime rate overall dropped about 1.4 per cent in U.S. cities. Robberies showed the biggest decline—15 per cent. .Murders and nonnegiigent manslaughter fell nearly -1 per cent. The FBI doesn't want us to feel too cheerful about these figures. It pointed out that if present crime rates continue the fourth year in a row in which more for the rest of the year, then 1955 will be than two million major crimes have been committed. So, we are not out of the woods. But maybe we can hope a little that somebody is beginning to find a path that will lead us out. In Best Tradition We don't know of any newspaper that ought to be prouder than the Rockwall Texas Success. Not for its circulation nor its advertising lineage, which may rank well, too. Rather we are thinking of the goodwill it has created among its neighbors. Two weeks ago Publisher P. J. Bounds died just before press time. His son and panner, J. P. Bounds, Jr., collapsed as he was setting type for his father's obituary. Doctors said he was suffering from exhaustion and needed a long rest. James Taylor, 20. who had once worked helping out around the paper came to see what he could do. Mrs. Fred Alexander, graduated from Texas State College for Women with a journalism degree, now with a husband and two children, volunteered for action. Polks .started bringing in personals, church notes and other news. Highway patrolmen stopped by with county accident reports. Two printers who had daytime jobs in other towns set the type at night, erchants brought in their own advertising copy themselves. The paper came out just one hour late last week and this week will be riyht on time. This is the kind of power of the press we like. It is a power that is built up week after week, year after year \viih conscientious and unselfish service. It is the kind of power that makes neighbors want to do something in times of trouble. Rockwall, Tex., may be a liule town and the newspaper which represents it may be a small journal but both have lived up to Ihi- highest traditions oi the craft: we salute them. — Shelby iN. C.)

Ever since Treasury Humphrey voiced the cautious hope that it might be possible to balance the federal budget, Democrats and Republicans in Congress have been trying to outdo each other in devising the more attractive vote- cachting tax cut, Only those two spoilsports, Rep. Dan Reed, New York Repviblican, and Sen. Harry Byrd, Virginia Democrat, have raised a discordant note. They ventured the old-fashioned sugpes- tion that any attainable Treasury surplus might better be used to pay off a little of the public debt. But apparently nobody else listened. It's considered smart politics to cut taxes in an .election year, and apparently the only issue between the Democrats ami Republicans is which party is to get the credit. The U. S. government owe.-. S278.309.000.HOO. In this fiscal year, it will pay out 36,700.000,000 for the hire of that money. This carrying charge alone is more money than was spent by the Roosevelt administration on the average in peacetime years for all purposes, if you exclude the government's comparatively small interest bill of those years. And FDR if yon remember was believed to be an imaginative spender. Interest on deb! is one item in a government budget, or a family budget, which can b« reduced only when, and as, the debt is reduced. It has been said that the distinction between ft politician .ind a statesman is that the former thinks about the next election and the latter thinks about, the next generation. Under that rule, those two killjoys, Dan Reed and Harry Byrd, seem to be the only ones try- Ing to qualify for the higher honor. — Memphis Press-Scimitar. WASHINGTON . —i NEA 1 — Now| (hey are planning to drop small! atomic bombs down oil wells to' capture more of the oil. make canned beer last like draft, beer by irradiation, and manufacture artificial blood with a radioactive process. These are just a few of the new ideas discussed at the recent meeting of the Atomic Industrial Forum here. The Forum is a group of 360 industrial, research, educational, labor and government orcaniza-. tions banded together to swap the| latest ideas in the burgeoning" . atomic energy field. I It was the first gathering of the peaceful atom brotherhood since the big international atomic powwow at Geneva last summer. If there was any one apparent result oi Geneva brought out at the meeting here it was the wide- ( spread belief that the use of j atom-generated electricity \s probably a little further in the future than the public has been led to believe. Typical of the new Ideas discussed at the lorum is the one for dropping small atomic bombs into: old oil wells. It has been advanced by Dr. Ecer V. Murphree, presi- d enl of I he Esso Resea rch and Ensineermt: Company. And there's not hint; 1 screwball about it. After making a study for Esso, one of the nation's top nuclear scientists reported that the heat developed from a small atomic bomb dropped into an old oil well would free much of the oil now left in the ground by present production methods. It would break down the heavy petroleum which now has to be left in the earth into lighter fluids which could be easily extracted. In addition to the heat reaction, the shock would undoubtedly crack up the geological formations around the pool and release much oil that is now trapped. At present. Dr. Murphree reports, only about 40 per cent of the total petroleum is being extracted from all wells. They Just can't get it out by any practical means. One line of research to solve this problem probed the possibility of igniting huge underground fires to break up, the heavy petroleum substances left below. This led toj exploring 1 the possibility of generating; thr ; heat by low-grade atomic explosions. And it looks like anj encouraging idea, Esso research-' ers claim. If this technique turas out to be successful it's obvious that it would be worth untold billions of dollars by opening up all the old played- out oil fields, plus doubling the known reserves. The report on this study made for Esso contended that it woud be safe for a man to stand on the ground a few feet from the top of I he hole if the explosion was a mile underground. The earth would absorb all ol the heat and blast effect. It's likely that a kind of glass-lined cavern in the earth would be formed by the blast, which could then be tapped for the petroleum It contained. The radiation contamination of the oil that would result is not believed to be an insurmountable the Doctor Savs — Written for NEA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. One of the difficulties about political women I* they are inclined to be bossy.

One cannot help but be impressed with the number of youngsters who are afflicted with what is cnnunonl;. know as adolescent pimples or acne. Although acne can occur at other ages it is cer- ! a inly most common and most troublesome during the teens both in girl.s and boys. It is definitely a physical disorder but it carries with it rather profound psychological effects, li acne were not a blot on the appearance at a time when personal sensitivity is at its peak it could perhaps lie considered only a minor affliction. It appears, however, at the same time that most youngsters begin to be interested in the opposite sex and in their appearance so that, it not infrequently results in unfortunate effects on the personality. Many with acne become exceedingly self-conscious and even refrain from the normal social contacts ,of their age, Ihus becoming Ingrown and excessively shy. Indeed this may be hard to overcome, even in later life. What cniLso* acne, in the first place, no one is quite certain. Infection plays fl part, but so does diet and it hns been noted frequently, that the condition is likely to become worse when the adolescent victim of acne takes too many sweets, or miscellaneous foods or drinks, ouUside of regular meals. Furlhormore, in ninny the condition btvnint's better in the summer with sun and exercise and worse at. other times oi the year. Treatment, of the physical condition is of great Importance. This should be taken under the direction of a skilled nnd sympathetic physician. He not only can prescribe the local trentmonls which seem suited to help tl.r none but also give advice on diet and other general health measures which affect the condition. It may oe saia m passing that the medical literature suggests that the effectiveness of such treatments is constantly improving. One good thing may be said about the physical treatment: there have been some good reports on two methods of treating the skin which has been scarred by acne, one being by use of sandpaper and the other by a wire surgical brush. Such treatments are not often needed but do offer hope of future improvement in the skin to one who has been unfortunate enough to develop scars. The psychological aspects of acne also cannot be neglected. It is certainly a mistake for family or friends to comment every morning on the state of a youngster's skin since this can only increase the self-consciousness. However, a boy or girl with this condition should take a firm grip on himself or herself, get the best treatment nnd advice possible, and make a real effort to lead a normal social life without paying too much attention to the disfigurement of the pimples which is ordinarily only temporary. It may be hard to Ignore cutting remarks about the appearance, but youngsters with acne should make an effort to do so. WONDER what the grocer did when he discovered that youngster who had opened up a whole row* of cereal boxes to gel the plastic prizes and play with them on the floor? — Tallahassee Democrat. IF great-grandpa could come back and hear a woman say she hns nothing to wear, he would believe it. — Ellav!lit (Oft.) Sun. problem. Dr. Murphree also points out that atomic reactors might be used by big industries just for the heat they could produce. For example, he points out, the Baton Rouge refinery of the Standard Oil Company alone requires two and one- half million pounds of steam an hour. Other industries need comparable huge quantities of heat and steam which atomic reactors could produce. The idea of preserving food by radiation is not new. But the latest adaptation of the idea is in the pasteurization of beer by radiation before bottling, to eliminate the present heating process. Draft beer does not have to be pasteurized, a fact which accounts for Its better flavor, the experts say. If a method of pasteurization by radiation could be perfected so the beer would not have to be heated, it's believed that the bottled or canned product would have the draft beer flavor. It, is reported that the need to heat the beer for bottling is why the Budweiser Company has never bottled its Michelob draft beer. A vast new field of industrial chemistry could result from studies aimed at such things as making plastics by using the effects of gamma ray on various substances. It's possible that synthetic blood plasma could be made much more cheaply and better with a gammi radiation process. At present, certain chemicals which have to be used in the process are harmful to the human body. And it is an ex tremely difficult job to remove those chemicals after they have done their job in the plasma.
