Road Blocks Up Ahead The battle lines for the Big Four foreign ministers' meeting at Geneva Oct. 27 are now being drawn. In fact they are being fixed so firmly that a stalemate appears almost inevitable at that conference. Within the past few days the leaders of the West have decided to give priority at Geneva to the issue of German unification. This is the one matter the Russians evidently do not wish to discuss realistically. As has been well aired before, the Kremlin will have no part of a unified Germany attached, as Western Germany now is, to NATO and the allied family of free nations. The only idea the Big Three diplomats have come up with to make such an agreement halfway palatable to the Russians is a European security pact to protect all sides from a remilitarized, Western-oriented Germany. This plan, authored by Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden of Britain, is now being hammered into final shape for Geneva. But everything indicates the Russians will not buy it. They believe time and circumstance are on their side. Having established diplomatic relations with the Bonn government of Chancellor Adenauer, they think they can deal directly on the unity issue without the intervention of the West. They do not expect the crusty old chancellor to buckle and give them the kind of unification the Communists •want. But they know he must die some time, and they figure his successor might not resist so well the pressures within West Germany for restoration of the full nation. Perhaps they imagine that even he will find his purpose eroded by time, that he will one day make a deal with the East German Red regime because he has at last realized unity any other way is impossible. However that may be, the immediate propsecl for settlement of the question at Geneva is dark indeed. The Geneva agenda does have two other major items, disarmamnet »nd th« improvement of East-West contacts. Progress of the disarmament effort.! recently made under UN auspices does not augur well for this item. Perhaps tht foreign ministers can find some way to break the log jam, but it would b« a surprise if they did. East - West contacts already havct ghown some betterment in the months before and after the "summit'' meeting at Geneva. Further improvement surely would be welcomed. But it is exceedingly doubtful that this alone would bt enough to allow th« world U «»il tht foreign i ministers' meeting as » great triumph. Once Oct. 27 arrives and the diplomats of East and West get down to cases, they will find themselves hard pressed to keep the heralded "spirit of Geneva" from flagging. Skeletons in the Closet Curious operatives of the post-Peron regime in Argentina have been digging into the ex-dictator's effects he departed Buenos Aires hastily. The findings are astounding. He maintained several dozen apartments. His bountiful wardrobe included 400 suits, 200 pairs of shoes, 40 sports caps, and so on. There were ample signs that he paid steady attention to the ladies and indeed lavished jewelry and other finery upon them. He was said to have stashed away jewels galore, and to have held 20 million dollars in "made money" in a suitcase, ready for immediate departure. If the new Lonardi government is not making all this up simply to discredit Juan Peron (we must assume they are prepared to offer proof), then it is clear the flamboyant ex-president is the King Farouk of the Western Hemisphere. . One may wonder what impact these disclosures may have on the "shirtless" one" among the Argentine labor force, who were said to have thought of Pefon as one of them. Power corrodes most men. Peron was easier prey than most to its corrosive effects. VIEWS OF OTHERS Free Enterprise U.S. capitalism has come in for favorable comment from an unlikely source—the secretary-general of the French Socialist Party. M. Guy Mollet told the National Press Club in Washington that American free enterprise "deserves its name." French capitalism, he noted, is frankly not so hot. He's right, of course. The United States has a high standard of living because we have here, not only a relatively "free" economy, but a tradition of risk capital. U. S. businessmen are not satisfied with making this year's profits equal last year's as they are in so many European nations—France in particular. In the United States, this year must be better than last and next year must be even better than this. The typical American desire to get ahead and to get ahead of his competitor is a vital force in our capitalistic economy. That drive is missing in France. Management in America takes risks, has imagination, and moves progressively forward. That businsessrnan who doesn't, is left out in the cold in our competitive market. But basic to all this is the factor the French socialist leader—like all socialltst, including U. S. New Dealers—fail to see. Only in a free economy, an economy unfetted by government imposed controls, can the benefits of mass production be passed on to the consumer inexpensively. A look at the record ought to convience anyone. Nations which have free, capitalist economies are leading socialist nations or nations with semi- socialist governments. At the top is, of course, the United States but on the continent of Europe, the West German Republic is a dramatic example of how a free economy can produce. And Great Britain, her economy now relatively free of the controls imposed by the Socialist government, f.s coming out of her slump.—-Kingsport (Term.) News. Tradition In Making Ten years after the end of World War II in Europe, the Russians have promised to release 9,fi26 Germans held prisoner as war criminals. But the Germans say about 100,000 of their countrymen still are captives. This sort of thing, at the present time, helps to explain the hatred that some European nations feel toward each other. If in some future years the Germans and Russians are referred to as "traditional enemies," it likely as not will be the result of such abuses of victory as this, as much as or more than the atrocities committed in war. — Lumberton (N.

One Sneeze and . Peter ft/son's Washington Column — Despite Rhubarbs, Wilson Calmly Shapes Nations Military Plans WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Charles Wilson has probably been the subject of more headlined rhubarbs than any other member of the cabinet. At the same time there is probably less public understanding of the job he has done than any of the other Administration officials enjoy. However, if there is any one person in the U.S. who has a keen, appreciative insight into Wilson's Pentagon ar.compHshments. and] cares less about the Secretary's i off-bat headlines, it's President Eisenhower. Long before Ike's heart attack Wilson luid won the President's fullj confidence in his ability to direct' the US. military program, subject] only to National Security Council and presidential decisions. And in spite of any jockeying for power which might so on among top administration officials in Ike's absence, Wilson will not lose this authority he has by virtue of the President's confidence and trust. That also ^oes for incorrect reports of Wilson feuding with Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey over cutting the military program to balance the budget. Wilson would like to see a balanced budget just as much as Humphrey or anyone else. But both men are too smart to damage the military program to achieve it. In spite of the great personal re- spect that Ike and Wilson have gained for each other, nothing resembling the "crony" relationship has developed between the men. Humphrey is really the only member of the Cabinet who has won more than a cordial official relationship with the President. Wilson regularly saw the President three times a week—at Cabinet meetings, at the meetings of the National Security Council and for regular personal conferences. It was during these regular conferences, which sometimes lasted more than an hour, that Ike learned the full details of what Wilson was doing at the Pentagon. Wilson was accomplishing things J which Ike had always seen as aj vital necessity during his military; career, but which he had not been able to do himeslf. That was to establish firm management controls over the military j organization and apply businesslike technique to running it. j When Ike was in the Pentagon! as unofficial Chairman of the Joint" Chiefs of Staff after World War II| he tried to gain a degree of control over the sprawling- defense program by spotting "bright young men" around in key places and ordering them to just watch. Ike's "smart young men" gimmick never did produce much. But Wilson did. For example, Wilson had a private session with Ike before the President went to the Geneva con- ference. During it the President asked Wilson the size and number of the bases the US. had around the world. This would be a major subject at Geneva, Ike said. To Ike's utter amazement Wilson promptly handed him a repori which had the name, status and size of every U.S. military base warehouse and installation in the U.S. and abroad. T t had long been an ironic joke in the Pentagon that a complete inventory of what the services owned didn't exist. But Wilson came up with one and Ike wa. e impressed, knowing that such a document—ha-s- always been- consid ered impossible to compile, It's typical of the tmgla morons but fundamental kind of thing Wilson has done in the Pentagon. Most important of Wilson's accomplishments as far as Ike is concerned i.s success with the so- called "new look/' It means that every branch of the service is well on its way to achieving a maxi- um atomic weapon capability. Within six months Wilson will report that this is complete. In the meantime Ike will see that no thins 1 interferes with this goal whether he has to back Wilson from the sick bed, golf course or office. Maximum military strength for the U.S. .built around atomic and other new weapons was one of Ike's prime goals when he took the oath of office. the Doctor Says — Written for NEA Service By EDWIN' P. JORDAN, M.D. Unfortunately no remarkably ef-| fective new treatment has been j developed for Ihe rather common condition known as sinusitis. Nevertheless, correspondents continue to ask for discussion of this .subject of which Mrs. T's letter i.s a good example. "My .sister," she says, "suffers from extreme sinus headaches. She is 31 years old and is trying to hold on to her teaching; job. Due to the damp weather here, she seems to get worse every year and I should like any information you can pivR me on somewhere else in Ihe United States where ft person with a sinus condition can breathe normally. This condition must he, hereditary because my sister's 10-j year-o\rt son is showing the same signs." Before going on to a general discussion of sinusitis, it should be said that so far as we know sinusitis is not nn hereditary disease• nnd the fact that Mrs. T's sister's son is also suffering from sinusitis should probably merely be consider nd as nn unfortunate coincidence. Treatments of many kinds are, nnd have been, used for sinusitis. Since the symptoms are often partly the result of the pressure of accumulated pus and mucus within! the m u c o u s membrane lined! pockets of the sinuses, temporary i relief is sometimes obtained by i washing them out. often with fluids contnining drugs which shrink the membranes. Sometimes serm-killinir drugs such ns the sulfa.s or the antibiotics are helpful. Operations are frequently employed, most of them aimed Rt enlarging the opening from the sinuses into the nose sn that the mucus and pus can drain out more easily. In spite of nil those measures many victims of sinusitis continue to suffer. Many, like Mrs. T,, have written asking whether they could expect relief by changing the climate. Theoretically, Ihe best climate for a person with sinusitis is one tn which there Is not much change in temperature between night and day. A temperature of 6R degrees to 75 degrees with the air neither too dry nor too moist but with a little breeze from time to time would be ideal. Parts of Florida and southern California are quit* close to this ideal. (Ask a Chamber of Commerce to supply Information,' Some places in Arizona and New Mexico, although quite different, appear to be good for some sinus sufferers. In most parts of these states, however, there is a great deal of fluctuation between day and night temperature and the air is too dry- to be satisfactory for some sinus sufferers. I know of some who become even worse in such areas. When a person with sinusitis wishes to consider a change of residence It Is best to try the new climate for several weeks or months before making a final decision, even though this is both difficult and costly. JACOBY ON BRIDGE Clever Playing Ties Up Foe By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NK AServIce There isn't a good name in English for the end position in today's hand.

South led another club to knock out the ace, and East returned another diamond to make South ruff again. Now South was down to the blank jack of spades, and East still had the ace-ten. How was South to avoid the loss of two trump tricks? The only hope was to cash all the side tricks and lead from dummy at the twelfth trick. Hence South cashed the king and queen of hearts, followed by the king of clubs. East had to follow suit to all of these plays, after which he was left with his two trumps. When dummy now led the last club, there was no way for East to shut out declarer's jack of spades* East could make only the ace of trumps, and South fulfilled his contract.
