Bad Advertisement Mms. Irene Jol lot-Curie is a Communist sympathizer a>s well us a famous nuclear physcist. Her husband is a member of the French Communist Party, and she herself came to this country under sponsorship of a left-wing jjroup. But our embassy in Paris did issue her A 15-day visitor's visa. Then, when she arrived, she was immediately taken in band by immigration officers, questioned for hours, and kept overnight at Ellis Island. This seems to us the Russian way of doing things. Certainly her movements here should be limited if they would endanger national security. But she might be treated courteously and allowed lo talk and observe people enjoying the blessings of liberty in a free country. This, it seems to us, is a better way of combatting communism and advertising democracy than the heavy-handed treatment which is bound to leave Mme. Joliot-Curie with a bad impression and a suspicion that bur talk about freedom does not always match our actions. VIEWS OF OTHERS Relief Hearing for Clams Ends With Recipe for Clam Chowder THE DOCTOR SAYS By Kdwln P. Jordan, M. D. Written for NEA Service inflammation of the nerves Is called neuritis. Symptoms of neuritis vary a lot but pain and len- dmiess are almost always present. Hy tiarman W. Nichols United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, March 27. (UP) —The House Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries w;.i mulling over some bills to brini relief lo Hie harried soft-shell clam imya aronarla.) It seems the poor clam is in bad shape. There aren't enough boy clams mating up with girl clams and hence very few little baby clams. In In long-lasting cases the feeling or | short, said Rep. George Bates of sensation may be disturbed and j Massachusetts, who authored ons America's Other Weapon About-Face on Palestine Poses Diplomatic Blunder One of the amazing things about the American government's about-face on partition is \vhy, if the administration felt it must abandon this solution of the i'Palestine problem, it ever supported partition in the first place. AH of the evident factors that led to the reversal of position were present when the U. S. was leading the movement' for Jewish and Arab independence. The Arabs had warned the UN early arid often that they would resist parti- i ti&n. Therefore, it would be necessary to ',,:; enforce the solution that the U. S. was ) ; 'backing so vigorously. Enforcement would probably mean that Russia, also supporting partition, would want to include her own troops in any international force that the UN sent into Palestine. And since she is a major power and al- rnbst a neighbor, it would have been impossible to keep her soldiers out of the Holy Land without, creating a full-scale crisis. There was also the likelihood that the Arab countries might try to punish America for supporting partition by shutting down, her supply of oil. This, with the possible difficulty of getting Russian troops away from the Mediterranean coast once they were there, presented an obvious military problem in thfe face of present Sovict-Amei'ican relations. But none of this is new. Long-range planning could have foreseen the difficulties. It could cither have planned their solution in advance or, failing to find a solution, could have opposed partition—in spite of America's pledged support. At least early opposition would have been more graceful. Instead the administration now pro-poses to abandon the program which the American delegation put over almost single-handed, and substitute a "solution" that can scarcely fail to leave Palestine in a worse plight. H was the failure of the Jews and Arabs to agree on Palestine's future fctter the British left that brought the Palestine issue before the UN in the first place. Now the American plan would substitute a UN trusteeship for the British trusteeship and try once more to get the Arabs and Jews to agfee. However one may feel about partition, the American handling of it looks like a very serious diplomatic blunder. It has weakened our own prestige. It lias strengthened the Russian position. And it has dealt the UN another heavy blow. This time it is the U. S., not Russia, that has thrust aside the majority decision of the assembly of nations. This time it is the U. S. that has bypassed the UN and given priority to its own in- ttrests. And it has further weakened the ^ UN by asking it to retreat before the •' opposition of a few small, weak, back- ( -'' ward government. i. So thing* art back wh«r« tliey.>tai'U muscular wasting can develop. The amount o[ pain produced by neuritis U variable. In some xrsons p«ln cm be practically In- olerable «nd In others, especially hose who ire in vigorous health, t can be borne without great dif- Iculty. Cause of neuritis, like Us symp- oms, is not alike in all cases Consequently, It is necessary to 'try to Ind out the cause in each case. When caused by diabetes, for example, the proper line of attack is o control the diabetes by a suitable diet and insulin If necessary. Caiue* of Neuritis Shingles can produce neuritis. In tills disease a virus is probably at fault. The nerve Itself Is apparently affected and the pain is often extremely severe and may last for a long time, especially in elderly people. Severe anemia can produce neuritis. Chemical substances, such as arsenic, and many Industrial products may produce' neuritis. Infections and diseases can also cause nerve pains. Nerve pains can come from vitamin deficiency, especially the lack of vitamin B. One type of neuritis is common among the victims of chronic alcoholism. Perhaps at least of the clam relief bills, if we don't watch our step, pretty soon,-lhere v.'on't be any more clams. The gray-haired Mr. Bates sute gested that if the government woulfl kick in with about $50,030 a year for five years, the breed might survive. ••Look." he told the committee, "you fellows spend $1CO,OSO a year on oyster aid—helping to keep that industry going. Why coddle the oyster and kick the clam in tin shell?" Give him a bowl of piping hot clam chowder any time in preference to oyster soup, he said. And speaking of Mrs. Murphy's fine chowder, Mr. Bates added, nobody but people in New Englaivl know how to make it right. New York chowder!!! Pftttttt! Dishwater, or almost as bad. No flavor. For one thins—quoting 'he gent from the Bay State—the New Yorkers don't use Ipswich clams, the very best in the world. Unquote. For another, the use water instead ol milk. "Would yon gentlemen like the receipe for clam chowder, the way it ought to be made " The committee smacked Lips and part of the reason for this is that e° l ollt ! >c " c11 and P ad to tak « * The past Is itlll with us. Those who hoped for a brave new world after the last war are finding on every side the tunerwom paraphernalia ol power blocs, spheres ol influence, military guarantees, armament, races, conflicting national sovereignties. Some Americans, indulging li. soft and wishful thinking, would blink the hard facts. Others, with heavy hearti and bitter minds, would wash their hands of the whole sorry business In a gesture -of 'despair: But 'a cbrageous, clear-eyed idealiim must 'ace'iquareiy .the challenge erf the past.' ••' • • ' In" a world In which old-fashioned power factors (with new lethal possibilities) still count heavily, the Interests and independence of nations beyond Uu-recognized sphere of influence are now- threatened. American military and economic power is necessary to back these nations against and .ggre'silve Russia '(Inheritor •• of Car 1st Russian • ambitions) seeking strategic" advantages which would endanger the possibility of reaching a balance of world power., Thus, American national interest demands 'a firm" containment of further Russian expansion.' : ! All this may be new to the United States as a recent comer to world power. It was an old story to Europe a hundred years ago when Karl Marx warned against Russian autocracy's aggressive threat to western democracy. Now the question is i Must the old story be repeated without variation till It leads to the ultimate calamity? No. This lime there Is a dlterence. Russia has a new weapon—the very Communism ot Karl Marx. It Is a half-truth to say that military power Is tlie only language the Soviet Union understands and respects. Certainly, bluster without military* power will never restrain the hard-bitten men in the Kremlin. But they speak another language, too: the language of revolutionary Ideas. And Henry Wallace is quite right when he declares that you can't.kill ir<cas with guns, Here, just .where there is the greatest danger, thtre Is the greatest hope. For this means that while democracy stands guard over its established Institutions with the weapons of the past (or deadlier versions thereof), it may never need to use these if it can win a clear victory on the new ideological front. What does this mean concretely? It means that the United States must first of all oiler doubting millions throughout the world convincing evidence that its own democracy works. Only thus can it disprove the Communist thesis that capitalism inevitably leads to fascism and to imperialist war as an escape from economic depression. It must purify its own democracy of the more glaring injustices which serve Communist propaganda so well. It must rise above the level pi thinking which prefers lowering its taxes to educating its children. Furthermore, the United States must prove the sincerity of Its concern for democracy elsewhere In the world. It must understand the legitimate aspirations of those wlm stand doubting between Russian and American promises. The angry surge of rebellion In the old World against the misery »nd exploitations of the past has deep-lying causes which lew Americans comprehend thoroughly. They must bend every effort not to allow mlllliry necessities to force them into unconditional alliance with corrupt privilege at the expense of popular lines which communism may Ihcn ride to Its own advantage. This is a tall order. Many Americans may feel that the obvious superiority ot their democracy spelts for itself. To ihose whr> hive enjoyed Its privileges, yes. But It must learn to speak the l»ngu»ge of those others whom It would win If the baltle of the future is to be (ought without plunging the world into atomic ruin. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.

Morse Brings Out Confusion Just how .confused the armed services personnel policies seem to be was indicated by Sen. Wayne Morse (R., Ore.) in some pretty sharp questioning of Forrestal. Morse prefaced his questions by declaring that the people in the grass roots were asking for facts to support the need for this new military plan. He then read from a leaflet some of the charges now being made against the armed services by anti- conscription and anti-UMT lobbyists. Was it true that the Army WAS now turning down 18-months' enlistments? Secretary Royall admitted this was so. Counting the time it took for basic training and terminal leave, the Army .figures it doesn't get enough service out of an 18- months' volunteer., Royall. there- lore, advocates that if the draft law is re-enacted, the term of services should be two or preferably three years. Morse then asked if it were true the Army was turning down half the volunteers because they couldn't meet enlistment requirements with a graoe of 80? Royall admitted this was also true. In wartime the passing grade was 59. The Army believes | it gets more value for its money out | of higher grade men. I What all this indicates is that if the armed services get what President Truman has asked for, they'll have to do a better selling job, 01 Congress won't buy. min B. Whether this is true or not.

"Now." he said, yum-yummins, 'here's how you do it: "Cover the pork, potatoes, onions and clams with water. Cook until potatoes are done. "Add salt and pepper to taste. Dump in the 16 ounces of milk, which give it that creamy, rich taste and body. And important, gentlemen—'don't boil it after the milk is added. It spoils the flavor." Mr. Bates paused for effect. Ha got it. The committee, from Chairman Thor C. Toilefson of Tacoma, Wash., on down was drooling. Not to mention the press row. "Now." continued Mr. Bates, rolling down his sleeves after..a joo well-done, "serve it with chowder crackers, or pilot bread. The committee said that sounded fine on paper and when was the clam bake? "Whenever the gentlemen please," said Mr. B. "In fact. I'll ride herd on the chef. I'm pretty handy with Jfl soup ladle myself." • In many cases by giving an adequate amount of this vitamin. With some exceptions neuritis Is on extremely difficult condition to treat satisfactorily. In some cases the pain is exceptionally severe and long-lasting. Relief has sometimes been obtained by killing the nerve by injecting alcohol or by cutting the nerve by an operation. Note: Dr. Jordan Is unable to answer individual questions from readers. However, each day he will answer one of the most frequently asked questions in his column. QUESTION: Can hydrocele be treated wllhout operation . ANSWER: Some cases of hydro- cele have been successfully treated by Injecting a solution into the involved area. Operation, however, is often the preferred method of treatment. 15 Years Ago In Biythevllle— IN HOLLYWOOD BY ERSKINE JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent By Ersklne Johnson NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (NEA)—I want to thank M-O-M for letting me see 'The Search." a story of a displaced mother and her son. filmed entirely in the U.
