More Popular Than Ever President Eisenhower has now completed three fourth, of the term to which he was elected in November, 1952. That » a sufficient span to allow the American people to judge him as Chief Executive. The celebrations honoring him at this milestone bear a largely partisan Republican stamp. But the evidences suggest th»t many millions of Americans would happily associate themselves with such homage. For Mr. Eisenhower is an extremely popular man, as much or more so than the day he was elected with an all-time record of nearly 34 million votes. Judged In these terms his tenure of office thus far has been a smashing- success. The verdict of the historians may or may not coincide with the popular judgment, but it is bound to be affected by it. There really is not a great deal new that can be said in explanation of this popularity that was not uttered at the time of the President's fateful heart attack last September. At that time he tack last September. At that time he learned, as few living men do, in what high esteem his countrymen held him. In the beginning, it seemed to be chiefly a matter of trust. Mr. Eisenhower was a man who had taken a big role in bringing the American people safely through a great war and preparing their defenses against the prospect of another. His performance in office tended to confirm that feeling of trust. The President revealed himself as a man intensely dedicated to the preservation of peace, the cause most Americans wanted to see served with full devotion. In the domestic realm, his tenure was linked first with a moderate economic decline and then with a resurgence that carried the nation to new peaks of prosperity. Here again, the great majority of Americans appeared indued to credit him with striving earnestly to better their lot in life. Almost beyond these things, Americana came to view Mr. Eisenhower as » man of such innate sincerity and decency th»t he has stamped the fresh imprint of these qualities on the country's public life. He hits quieted, if he has not stilled, the angry currents being stirred by the extremists when he assumed the presidency. The tenor of public discussion is calmer, and there is more unity in the United States than in many a day. His critics in his own party think he h»» been too much a Democrat. His Democratic adversaries think—or say- It* h«* benefited from the "illusion" nthvr than the fact of peace nnd pro- •ptrlty. If President Eisenhower should de- cide to run for a second term, those who would prove these circumstance* "Illusory" have their work cut out for them. For most people show no signs today of doubting the «ubstence of these favorable condition!. They have watched the President for three years. And they like what they have seen. Flower of Boyhood Next month the Boy Scouts of America celebrate their 46th birthday anniversary by launching a new four - year program to be called, "Onward for God and My Country." The goal of the program is to give America's youth wider opportunity to develop physical fitness, self-reliance, a sense of ubliguliuii, a feeling of personal responsibility, greater willingness to share and to help others, and an understanding of the nation's demo- In a day when the path of. our youth era tic processes. seems strewn with greater hazards than ever and the performance of American youngsters in under heavy challenge, the Boy Scouts loom large as a tremendous force for sound guidance and development. No movement in America merits more encouragement. Let Americans everywhere join in making the Boy Scouts' new program the success it deserves to be. V'lEWS OF OTHERS Knocking Out Joe Louis Everybody remembers that Heavy-weight Boxing Champ Joe Louis was knocking down his purses along with knocking down his opponents a few yean back, but Joe is In trouble. His taxes have about scored a knockout on him. Joe doesn't know exactly how much he owes the tax collector. He gets a bill almost every week, with the amount increasing as the six per cent interest on the unpaid taxes adds up, he says in a Saturday Evening Post, article. The trouble started, Joe says, when he collected a $59W16 purse for his fight with Billy Conn, his first after getting out of the Army following World War L When he added up his taxes and other debts against that Billy Conn purse, he found himself about a quarter of a million dollars in the hole. And each time he would earn another big purse, taxes -would come along and take a chunk of it so big that he had little left over to pay his back taxes plus interest. "I owe the Ggovernment well over $1,000,000 in back taxes," Joe says. "When you owe that kind of money you can't get out, because the more you make, the higher the percentage that's being taken out in curent taxes. It's like doing roadwork on a treadmill. The faster you run, the faster they move that treadmill against you. . , ." When a business enterpriser finds himself in the Joe Louis tax class so 91 cents of each dollar goes for taxes, where is the incentive to do the work that it takes to make more money? Some may say they do no feel sorry for anybody with so much money that he has that problem, but there is reason to feel sorry for the rest of us who lose the results of enterprise which is promoted by the profit motive. If there were a famine one year, for example would it be wiser to tighten the belt and be hungry while saving seed grains for next year's planting, or would it be better to eat the seed grain on hand and have no crop at all next year? When our taxes become confiscatory, they kill the goose that lays the golden eggs—resulting In our having no goose and no eggs.—Chattanooga News-Free Press. Grist Mill Stil Although Yankees in the corn grinding and packing business label the coarser products of their works "hominy grits" it is interesting to note that news stories from the upper reaches of the country speak of "grist mills." If there was consistency, either the packages of uncooked hominy would be labeled "grist" or the devices which turn them out would be dubbed —and we blush and apologize to delicate Southern sensibilities for using It even in satire—"hominy grist mills." We believe such a bit of nomenclature would be repugnant to the most material minded Industrialist. We do not follow the consistency of making payment and posting recorcn for buying a "grist mill" to grind "hominy grits."—Columbia (S.C.) State. SO THEY SAY Regardless of the equipment and wo&pono we may develop the Army will never be any better than the 1,500,000 men and women In and out of uniform who compose Its ranks. — Gen.

Peter Ed son's Washington Column — Grace-Prince Romance Gave Tax Experts Quiet a Workout By DOUGLAS LARSEN and KENNETH 0. GILMORE NBA Staff Correspondents WASHINGTON — (NBA) — Suspicious tax -experts, here rushed to their statute books when the engagement of Grace Kelly to Prince Rainier m of Monaco was announced. At first glance it-looked like the greatest "romance of the decade was also the greatest income tax dodge of the decade. If she gave up her citizenship, It was at first believed possible that an obscure law would have cut her tax to only 30 per. cent of her income. The savings to her would have t been enormous. But a second check at Internal Revenue revealed a ruling which held that that law only applied to such persons making less than $15,000 per year. Miss Kelly makes quite a bit more than that. BRITISH AMBASSADOR Roger Makins has been recommending that the best way to attend cocktail parties, is to rush through the receiving line, accept a drink, take a polite sip, pour the rest out and go home. Other night at a reception, however, he got his party modus operand! loused up by Sen. George Malone (R-Nev). As Makins was about to set his first drink down and scram, Malone began telling him about the current price of copper. When the senator finally finished Makins had gone through his third drink and appeared in need of a fourth. WHEN WORD GETS to the boondocks about the big receptoin just held here for J. Addlngton Wagner, the new national commander of the American Legion, he may be in hot water. The town's diplomatic corps turned out in full force to make the swank affair look more like a meeting of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. And there are elements of the Legion which think UNESCO is subversive. Party was thrown by Eddie McGinnis, former Senate sergeant-at- arms" and Legion official. But it Was anything but subversive. For example, in one corner Nicaraguan Ambassador Sevilla Sa- casa and Japanese Ambassador Sadao Iguchi were earnestly debating the wisdom of the Nats' baseball team trading away Mickey Vernon and Bob Porterfield. The food was an American as any Legionnaire could have demanded. There were big slabs of tender roast beef, delicious hams, stuffed eggs, grilled cheese biscuits and roasted pork sausages. And, of course, there was the necessary liquid to wash it down. IT WAS LIKE kindergarten lei loose in the office of Sen. Richard Neuberger (D-Ore) the other day. Constituents Dale Hoecker, wife and four children stopped In on their way to Brazil where he is taking a job as an agriculture expert for the International Cooperation Administration. The kids banged away on typewriters, dialed phones, spread literature on the floor and generally whooped it up. "You'll have to excuse the kids,' Hoecker apologized to the senator. "They've been cooped up in the car for nine days." "You've got real courage to go all that way," Neuberger replied. "If they still have all that energy when they get down there," he added, "they'll make the South American siesta obsolete." DR. FRED CULLEN, a popular figure here, can accurately be called the most" careful man In town about what he consumes. When he wants a drink at a party he asks the bartender to gvie him soda and ice. Then he takes a half pint from his back pocket and adds his own brand. He likes "noisy" Vests, too, as he calls them. NEVER HAVE SO MANY toasts been drunk at a Washington party. The occasion was a fancy dinner given by .Sen. Margaret Chase Smith (R-Me) in honor ol Rep. Frances Bolton (R-Ohlo), who recently came back from a tour of Africa. Among those who rose -with glass in hand were disarmament boss Harold Stassen, Rep. Joseph Martin (R-Mass), Sen. John Bricker IR-Ohio), Supreme Court Justice Harold Burton and Assistant Secretary of State George Allen. Dinner, by the way, was at the Congressional Club where booze !•• forbidden.

Paramount's busy laughing over the "teaming" of Grace, Crosby and Hope In "The Road to Monaco," and Ann Sothern's press agents are busy saying she'll fall in love with a prince in her new telefilm series to be" filmed in Europe. It's "Monaco Mink" on a sign In a Los Angeles furrier's window, and it's "To Catch a Prince' instead of "To Catch a Thief" on a Santa Anna theater marquee. From London in a CBS broadcast Hoawrd K. Smith dubbed Grace "the girl who SAVED the bank at Monte Carlo," and when a movie queen walked into a fur designer's salon it was: "Show me something in mink that I can wear for formal occa slons — like Grace Kelly's cor nation." A Hollywood press agent with a swank new Jaguar is planning to have some fun on a Hollywood freeway with a license plate sigi labeled "Monaco" and decorated with a crown. And all the glamor girls says Dan Duryea, have turned Kelly green with envy. "It's bigger than both of us Rainy " You'll soon be saying it, you highness.

Girl friend Vera Miles undresses in the same room with Van Johnson in "23 Paces to Baker Street.' "The censors said it was perfectly all right, in this Doctor Says — By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Written for NBA Service "So many of my friends have diverticula and suffer indigestion," writes Mrs. W., "that I wish you would discuss it." Certainly the disorder known as diverticulosis is common enough and so many others have written about it that, although this has been discussed before, I shall have to do so again even though we really do not know any more about It than we knew last year or the year before. First, it is best to explain what we are talking about. A Diverti- culum is a pouc! or a pocket leading off from a large cavity or tube. In the digestive passageway or gastrointestinal tract leading from the mouth to the oule, such pouches are fairly common. Presumably his is because there was some weakness in the wall of the digestive tube which was present at birth. Actually, diverticula (which is the plural of diverticulum) are most frequent In the lower part of the bowel or colon. Apparently, they Increase In frequency with age. They are said to be present In about one person in every twenty who hns reached or passed the age of 40. Usually, these pockets do not produce symptoms and the condition Is called diverticulosis. But once in a while the lining of the pockets become Inflamed and then dlvcrtlculitls is the label used. In dlvertlculitls the symptoms of Inflammation vary a good deal. There may. be a single attack of acute abdominal pain (which has to be differentiated from appen- dtcltts or other acute abdominal condition), or several attack's. Occasionally, Inflammation may be so severe as to cause a hole In the pocket with Infection spreading to the abdominal cavity and producing peritonitis or abscess formation. The area Involved may be sensitive to pressure, though of cour» thl* can result from a great many other conditions. Because the symptoms are so similar to many other conditions, and are frequently complicated by other disorders, the diagnosis is often difficult. When severe diverticulitis bursts essary.

Many of us have diverticula which never cause trouble. Of those which do produce difficulty, most can be treated reasonably well by diet measures. As and yet other there simple is no known way of preventing either diverticulosis or the more rare dl- verticulitis. Vic Stiff Clobbering SAN JUAN, P.R.

Blood Brings Auto Repairs SAN DIEGO, Calif. - tfl — The case of the damaged police car remained unofficial to the end. Two detectives, in it when it scraped the entrance to a garage, failed to make a report. Police Chief A. E. Jansen said they could pay for the damage themselves. They found, in shopping around at garages, that repairs would cost about $100. One garageman, however, remarked that the detectives looked healthy and said his sick sister needed blood for transfusions. The deal \vns made, unofficially — blood for repairs.
