Truman Must Ponder Momentous Questions The draft-Eisenhower movement is behaving—to use an inelegant comparison—like a stream of water in a leaky garden hose. Successfully stopped in one place, it pops out in another. Genera] Eisenhower's refusal of the Republican nomination in the event it was offered him, plus widening rifts in the Democratic Party, gave some Democrats the idea that he might come in on their side. This in-turn reawakened the -^ public clamor for the popular general that shows no geographical, political, social or economic boundaries. . But there is now an important difference. If General Eisenhower's name had been presented to the Republican convention he would have been only one among four or five leading contenders. He might not have made it. But as a Democratic contender, General Eisenhower would be up against Mr. Truman and no body else. He would be *sked to challenge the almost automatic practice of giving the incumbent g re- nomination if he wishes it. This delicate situation not only puts th« issue up to General Eisenhower and his puts it as squarely up to President Truman and those in his camp. Mr. Truman has predicted his victory in November and has given no public evidence of anxiety. Yet he cannot be indifferent to the pattern of recent events, Southern politicians are complaining loudly. District leaders in tlie big cities have been threatening revolt since the shift of policy on Palestine. Normally Democratic labor leaders are showing little enthusiasm for Mr. Truman and much for General Eisenhower. And then there is Henry Wallace. Mr. Truman may not believe the frequent predictions that he cannot pos- •ibly win. But he must see that the oddly ^sorted Democratic Party of Franklin Roosevelt's administration is beginning to come apart at the seams. There must be something of a struggle, then, between Harry S. Truman, loyal party nwn, ^nd Harry S. Truman, President. The President has always shown immense party loyalty, even to the less than impeccable Pendergast machine that started him on a political career of impeccable honesty. Yet, like almost every other President, he has gained •s«urance and individuality during his White House residence. He is not today the humble, reluctant who said the day after Mr. Roose's death, "There have been f« w men M> all history the equal of the man into »ho«8 I am stepping. I pray God I urt up to the task." This is Any nun who heads the gov- nt of the world's greatest nation i an importance th»t must surely .be reflected in his own eyes. So Mr. Truman alone can answer these two momentous questions: Is the Democratic Party headed for dissension and defeat under the present leadership, and could Harry S. Truman, loyal party man, reunite it and assure victory by withdrawing in favor of General Eisenhower? Does Harry S. Truman, President o' the U. S., believe this—and if he docs, what will lie do about it? Footnote on Tolerance Immigration officials, who kept Irene Joliot-Curie, the French left-wing scientist, at Ellis Island on her first night here, didn't detail her sister, the writer Eve Curie, when slie arrived in New York a few days later. She might not have fared so well if she had run afoul that congressional committee that's been trying to get a Republican State Department official fired because his second cousin is suspected of being a Communist. VIEWS OF OTHERS A Warm Front in the Cold War The Marshall Plan lias been described by an Australian newspaper as opening a warm front in the cold war. Certainly, the promise of food, material, nnd machines for European reconstruction has kindled new energies in blcnk, beleaguered European nations. Yet ETIP is still a scmimllilary R11(l coldly impersonal program to many Americans. Their Imaginations have not been set afire by Its possibilities. The human warmth that comes from personal contact with European needs and points of view is missing. Now, Americans are a warm-hearted people, though sometimes slow to grasp the necessities of n situation outside their own experience. The Immediate papular response to the Friendship Train contrasts reassuringly with the tardy congressional action on 13RP. And the host of young Americans who are eager to study abroad, to meet and work with the Europeans for whom ERP is designed, greatly outnumber the means they have for getting abroad. The United States has put six ships especially at their disposal lor the summer. The Fulbright Act has made scholarships for study abroad available to them, other funds, both public .and private, are likewise promoting foreign study by American' students. Yet this is not enough. We believe there are numbers of young Amer- not necessarily on the college level or in the well- to-do classes, who would respond enthusiastically to a chance to take part in the actual reconstruction of Europe. Splendid work-though obviously s limited scale—already has been accom- plishcd through the work camps of the Congressional, Friends, and Unitarian Service Committees in Europe, where Americans have labored side by side with Europeans. Unfortunately, these committees, operating on a limited budget, must charge Americans participating in the work something like S500 for the privtleye of working. Their programs could be greatly increased in scope and usefulness if "Workshlps" corresponding to scholarships could be made available to qualified young people. Perhaps an extension of the principle of the Fulbright Act to this end would be the best way ol throwing human resources behind dollar resources In American aid to Europe. The Communists showed bold Imagination In the Yugoslav Youth Railway "crusade." which brought together large numbers of young people from mnny countries on a major work of reconstruction, can Americans offer no more than the timidity of their State Department, which refused passports lo mature non-Communist students who wished to go either to Yugoslavia or to the Prague Student conference last summer in order to present to tbflr fellow students in En- rope a true picture of live, vigorous American democracy? The (act that military preparedness and power are now overshadowing the positiic aims of PHP m no way changes the need for constructive action. If » democratic western Europe is to be built up, then there is a chance for Americans lo help in the building as well as to stand guard over U with pointed bayonet.

Jordan, M. D. Written tor NEA Service Healthy people ought to use their muscles If they want to treat their bodies In the way Intended by nature. The circulation is better, the 4 By Harman W. N'lchali (Vnltfd Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, April 5. (UP)Yesterday marked the happy end of honey-for-bi eakfast week. And now we don't-have much to look forward to until the week starting April IB, which l a Lot's- Everybody-Run-a-Want-Ad-in-tlie. Paper Week. That stretch from now until the ISih is one of the longest breathing digestion and bowel elimination spells or the year In the matter of work better and probably all of the other various functions of the human tissues and organs behave better ir some physical excercise is taken. Although many people who confine their exercise to a minimum seem to feel pretty well for a. long time, they generally do not have that feeling of glowing health that comes to a person who keeps fit by suitable physical exertion. Eventually, lack of physical exercise catches up with them by disturbing digestion or other functions in ways which they do not expect. The exercise which a person takes ought to be carefully adjusted to one's ability to take It. Most people have to build up gradually from a sedentary-or quiet life to one In which they can take more rugged exercise without exhausting them- selves-, Getfiitf Adjusted For physical exercise to produce its greatest good and pleasure. It must be adjusted to Individual capabilities and to the age and sex. No two persons reset exactly alike to exercise. Some have to be particularly careful about doing too much becuse of some physical defect, such as a weak heart. Also some kinds of physical exercise which are perfectly all right for men may bring about harmful effects in women. More Important still Li the age. Many young men, for example, at 20 or io can run » mile without harm. If they tried to do this at 40 the results probably would be disastrous. It takes quite a long time for the muscle tone and other functions of the body to be built up. This makes necessary for observing some week or another. There's an Apple Week and a Baby Week. One for be-kind-to- animals and another for better parenthood. A cat and dog week (separate), one honoring the hole in the doughnut and one for foot health; Raisin Week, sweater Week and Wine Week. Much of the headaches connected with proposed observances come to the Senate Judiciary Committee, headed by Sen. Alexander Wiley of Wisconsin. They waste the committee's time, for one thing. "Also," said the gentleman from Wisconsin, with considerable feeling. "It gets to be a nuisance." He waved a weary hand toward a stack of letters, all suggesting s week lor something. Some of them commercial; Most of them dovri- right silly. One lady wrote in and said she thought it would be a fine gesture toward a noble animal—the cat— If we had a Don't-Kick-the-cat Week. Somebody else suggested a Don't- Take- Any- Sass- from- the- Bo'.s Week, something I've been observing myself for years. Always during my vacation. A guy from Oregon asked Congress to proclaim a national [earn- To-Play-the-Piccolo Week. Along about now. if one of the Senator's writers-in had his way, would be Hcturn-Snow-Shovcl Week. There's already a Peanut Week, which Is all right if you like peanuts, and an Onion Week.
