A Sub For EDC It is good news that the series of .hurried "round robin" meetings involving Secretary of State Dulles, British Foreign Secretary Eden, German Chancellor Adenauer and. others has resulted in a call for a nine • power conference to find a way to bring West Germany into the Atlantic, alliance. The invitations go to the United States, Canada, Britain, and the six nations ariginally marked for inclusion in the now defunct EDC plan—West Germany, France, Italy Belgium, Holland, and - Luxembourg. In addition to this conference, the 14 members,of NATO will meet around mid-October to study the matter of German rearmament. The urgency in the situation stems from realization that pro-Western political forces in Germany are in shaky conditions as result of French rejection'. of EDC. Adenauer had built his European policy on that defensive plan. There is no tendency any more to show special deference to France in working out a suitable EDC substitute. The initiative has passed to other hands, if indeed it can be said "initiative" ever really rested with the French. On the other hand, Dulles, Eden and Adenauer recognized the value of having French agreement on some new plan l if it can be gained without acceptance of crippling amendments. Diplomatic sources say France has agreed in principle to linking Germany with NATO. If that is so, the impending London conference could get down to practical ways of developing that alliance. The French rebuffed EDC, a plan that would have placed German armed units under international control. France felt the control would be insufficient to check a resurgent Germany. Presumably a Germany allied with NATO would have an independent national ;army. Offhand, this sounds like, the thing the French fear most. But evidently France feels that such an army tied to NATO, with such powerful nations Britain and America in formal association, would be under somewhat better control despite its "Indepen- Furthermore, the French are said dence." . to be demanding guarantees that British and U. S. troops stay indefinitely on the European continent, and that German rearmament be kept within sane bounds. How far the other nations will now b^ willing to go in iatisfying reported French condition! cannot be guessed But appears definite that the West is determined to develop ipctdily an iffte- f tive plan for drawing Germany closer. The price of failure, or even delay, could b« to see Germany swing toward the,Soviet orbit—at least to the point of adopting a neutrality which would only benefit the Russians. VIEWS OF OTHERS Oh No? Some genteel folk headel by Miss Anna Lord Strauss have organized a Fair Campaign Practices Committee Inc. Purpose of these ladies and gentlemen is to install "high standards of ethics and morality" into the congressional election campaign. The committee says it will ask the 1047 candi- : dates running for Congress this fall to sign a "code of fair campaign practices." Democratic Na. tional Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell and Republican National Chairman Leonard W. Hall, each with a dead pan, solemnly signed the code at a kick-off press conference in Washington. According to the code: No personal vilification, no character defamation, no whispering 'campaigns, no libel, no slander no scurrilous attacks on any candidate or his personal family life. v No campaign, huh?—Knoxville News-Sentinel.

Hate Campaigns We go along with Adlai Stevenson's expression of distaste at hate campaigns. Some of the lan- guge used by Republican orators, carried away by their enthusiasm, has been intemperate to the point where it borders on the ridiculous. To confound New Dealers with Communists is neither fair nor sensible. To imply that the Democratic Party is the party of treason is so nonsensical that it should raise a laugh, not anger. , But let us remember there are two sides to this. business. Let us remember the virulent hate campaigns that was waged against the administration of Herbert Hoover. Let us remember some of the speeches of earlier campaigns, and lome that are still-being made, that would teach the American, people the GOP is simply the creature of money hungry business barons, the Fat Cats who do not care a snap of their fingers for humanity or the Common People. Isn't that a hate campaign? Listen to some of the speeches being made by the rabid liberals like Humphrey and Morse, with the references to Wall Street and Big Business; listen to the charges and implications that the President Is a fool, or a tool of wickid interests; that he would sell out me interests of the people to enrich his friends. If this is not a hate campaign, what is it? But the extremists to which tne political orators go like the cries at the ball game. Kill the Umpire! Take the bum out! Nobody really wants the umpire killed. This is part of the game. So the hate campaigns is largexy political claptrap. By common consent politicos are given wide leeway and many of them put no limitation on their imaginations* And part of the idea is 'to become highly indignant and holier-than-thou about the terrible things the '.Other Side says while serenely ignoring the fact that your side is just as guilty. • • •' And in this business neither side can afford to call names. It's a perfect example of a pot and kettle, each Lving in a very vulnurable glass house. Let's keep our sense of humor.—Kingsport (Tenn), Times. SO THEY SAY It is my contintion that the people of .

WASHINGTON—(NBA) — Pre- iie French turndown of EDC—the European Defense Community— now seem headed for private discussions during the opening days of the United Nations General Assembly. It convenes for its ninth session in New York on Sept. 20. Most of the European foreign minister? and U. S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles -will be there at the kickoff. ., German. Chancellor Konrad Adenauer will not be there, as. his country is not in the UN. But be- countries can meet with the Germans, it is now believed there will have to be some exploration with the U. S. for a new formula. This is indicated by the announcement by the U. S. High Commission for Germany that Secretary Dulles will be at Bonn Sept. 16 for urgent talks -with West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer on German rearmament and sovereignty. The announcement climaxed six days of intensive diplomatic activity in Western Europe by British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden and U. S. Undersecretary of State Robert B. Murphy. Chancellor Adenauer has been shying away from any conference with the Europeans which will not have" Secretary Dulles' there to back him up in the new demands German independence news developments of the forthcoming session. Only one new issue now seems headed for the UN agenda. This is the Cyprus question. It may cause the American delegation plenty of trouble because it involves two .good, friends of the United States—Britain and Greece. The Greeks and the people . of Greek origin on the island of Cyprus in the Eastern Mediterranean want independence from Britain and union with Greece. • The British position is that Cyprus has been one of their crown colonies since 1878, and that the island's government is none of the Greek's business. The British have offered the Cyprians a new constitution and a measure of inde- !her "borders' haps- with a new committee. The Russians will try their usual moves to unseat the Chinese Nationalist delegates and to admit Red China ! to membership. That will be opposed by the United States. Admission of other new members .will be blocked by the Russians or their satellites, for another round in this long-standing stalemate. Independence for Morocco and Tunisia will be brought up again. But the French record in North Africa has improved since the last session and there may be less tension now. Thailand has decided not to study Communist threats against for West ad arms. At the present time, it can be stated authoritatively that the United States has no fixed policy to replace EDC. It will take time to develop a substitute. That is why informal talks on the subject —not on the floor of the UN Assembly, but outside, in private— may provide the most important pendence and self-government in their internal affairs—if they want it But that isn't what they want. So the issue goes to the UN debating society. Whether the United States will support the aspirations of the Greek people or the British desire to keep Cyprus as an important' naval and air base in the Mediterranean is the number one question. Other matters to come before this session od the UN General ssembly are largely routine, unfinished business which can't be wound up because of Russian obstruction. There will be a report that no satisfactory 'solution ' for the Korean question could be, found at the Geneva conference. There is no plan in sight now for new Korean peace negotiations. There will be a report .that the Disarmament Commission, which met in London 'last summer, could make no progress. It will probably be instructed to try again, per- The question of Chinese Nationalist forces within Burma has been eased by moving most of these guerrillas to Formosa. will present an argument over western New Guinea, each side accusing the other of not negotiating- 'in good faith on "the future status of this big island domain. The Marshall Islanders have a polite" protest to make before the Trusteeship Council over U. S. hydrogen bomb tests in the Pacific. The American government is trying to work it out quietly. But India and some of the Communist countries which want the H-bomb tests stopped may try to whip this up into a major protest issue. The U. -S. delegation is expected to present to the UN further details of President Eisenhower's plan to pool atomic energy resources for peaceful uses. And this may be one of the more constructive things to come out of the UN Assembly this year.

Mell Brooks, Jr., of Little Rock has arrived to spend several days the Doctor Says— Written for NEA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. Each year several people who be considered. are either afflicted themselves with shingles,, or have friends who are, write and ask for a discussion of this strange disease. First, I should say, that shingles, or herpes zos- ter, as it is known medically, in all probability results from a virus infection. For some peculiar reason this virus attacks the nerve roots ,of the nerves of feeling. It also, for some unknown reason, is almost always on one side of the body only. - The first sign of the disease is generally.pain or a burning sensation on one side of the body. Tingling or other peculiar sensations are frequent. It is common around the chest, the hips, the abdomen and the face. Serious complications occur if it effects the eyes. ir im- ' Older people whith nerve pain following shingles deserve our deepest sympathy. Eventually' recovery is likely to come. I JAGOBY ON BRIDGE Written for NEA Service By OSWALD JACOBY Stay Away From This Bridge Bid North's opening bid of one no- trump, in today's hand, is not recommended. The 5*4-2-2 distribution is better for suit than for no-trump play. Aside from the dis- like pneumonia or meningitis;. it can come in epidemics or without any cause wtich can be identified. Many different kinds of treatments have been used for shingles. Soothing lotions or other preparations help a little. X-Rays have been used with variable success. Antibiotics also may have some value. Anything wtich improves the general health is considered desirable. But there is no truly specific remedy. In elderly people, or those who have been, weakened by illness, poor diet or the like, herpes is often a particularly serious thing because it hangs on so long. When nothing else seems to work, cutting the nerge by surgery or other procedure! on the nerves may have to bid. South's response of two diamonds was not invitational in any sense. With a good hand .South would have bid three diamonds, or two or more no-trump; or he might have bid two clubs, ihs Stayman convention, asking North to show a major suit. South's actual bid of two diamonds merely showed a bad hand a long diamond suit. North wasn't particularly fond of diamonds, but he had sense enough to pass before matters got any worse. Neither side had a really good spot to play the hand. West opened the jack of hearts, and South won with the king. Declarer then blundered by leading a spade bock. West won the second spade with the Jack, and promptly led a low trump. East took two high trumps and cashed the queen of spades. South struggled on for a while, but he eventually lost a total of three spades and three trumps, for a one-trick defeat. It was correct for South to begin on the spades, but he should play the nine of spades from the dummy instead of putting up the ace. here with his parents, Mrs. J. Mell Brooks. Mr. and nothing for anybody." Joan said she was complimented on her dresses while abroad. French women stopped to .admire her coat on the Riviera and .inquired what Paris shoppe -produced it. Mrs. Barney Balaban, wife of the Paramount president, commented on her 'striking Paris gown when they returned on the boat. "I had to tell them that I brought all of my wardrobe-from California," she said. "Before I left Hollywood, I decided I would take everything along. And I had Orry-Kelly and Bud Perkins, who does the clothes on the TV show, whip me up some special numbers. They were as good as anything I saw over there." Joan admitted that she made some purchases abroad. On ' the Riviera she bought a. red beach jacket ($2) and three gondolier hats (60 -cents.apiece). "I also went to an obscure cou- tourier in Paris, figuring I should take something home," she . recalled. "I bought a washable .dress for about $45. It needed shortening, so I left It there and picked it up before I sailed. That was the day after the Dior showing. "When I got in New York, I decided I wanted to wear,the dress. It was awful! They thought- they would give me* the latest style. They had taken material out of the bosom so I looked as flat as a pancake. It looked like that outfit Julie Harris wore in 'Member of the Wedding.' I never was able to wear the dress."

If East fails to return a trump, nothing can stop declarer from ruffing a spade in dummy. The spade ruff or the king of trumps represents declarer's much-needed eighth .trick. Note that West cannot prevent South from making the ducking play in spades. If West puts up the jack of spades, South can afford to win with the ace and return the nine of spades. The defenders can now draw dummy's trumps, but South can set up his ten of spades as a natural spade trick. 14 Things to be 12 II is the ' 24 Weathercock'. 40 Completed done - Central 25 Sea eagle 41 Bear 15 Key American 27 Knocks constellation 16 Ontario (ab.) country 28 The dill 42 Deceased 17 Short-napped 13 Flower 29 River duck 44 Ireland fabric ISMorindin dye 30 Shield bearing45 Mix "Oh, that's so we don't forget what's trump," he explained. — Lamtr (Mo.)
