Who'11 Be Top Dog? Since Stalin died the Hussian leaders have sought to make a great thing out of the so-called "collective rule" that supplanted the dictator. They have talked of it almost as if it were some kind of glorious democratic phenomenon. 1 Actually, in the view of most experts on the Soviet Union, the committee rule that developed was sheer necessity, nothing more. No one man was sufficiently powerful to pick up the scepter dropped by Stalin, and rule without challenge. The committee structure was just a facade, however, behind which the struggle began for Stalin's power. The first victim of that battle was Beria, head of the ' secret police. The second was Malenkov, the nominal head of government until this year. And now Molotov, the tough, practiced diplomat, the "Old Bolshevik," is being pushed down. All these moves have been accomplished through the rising might of Khrushchev, secretary of the Communist party. He began his real climb soon after Stalin's death, when he replaced Malen- kov as top man in the party. Malenkov's dramatic stepping down showed the world the real shape of the internal struggle. Molotov has not resigned but merely confessed 'error.' But of course this is more than enough in Russia to damage his position seriously. It is very possible he is being kept on at his post as foreign minister because Russia has no one else so skillet) in advancing the Communist cause at the council table. Neither Malenkov nor Molotov are being liquidated in the old Red style. This might lie because in admitting error they have in effect destroyed themselves as power wielders. It might also be because the Russians know they cannot impress the outside world as smiling peace-makers if they eliminate their opponents with dum-dum bullets. There seems to be no question that Khrushchev's position has been further advanced by what Molotov has done. But the stocky pary secretary is not yet the appearance of committee rule, nor so firmly fixed that he can dispense with with the figure of Premier Bulganin standing in front of him. No one outside the Kremlin can be sure exactly what Krushchev's relations with the Red army are at this time. Bul- ganin's presence high in the picture suggests some dependence by Krushchev on the military. It suggests also that the final showdown a true dictator and . Stalin's successor, will be fought between him and the army. Again »nd again speculation has had it that Marshal Zhukov represents the military in this potential combat. Time will show if it if so. The eyes of the world will be fastened now on th« popular Soviet general and th« army'i political factotum, Bulganin, to see whether the military has the will and the strength to resist Khrushchec. Bustling News In Red Fashions Russia's "new era" of friendship and frankness is producing some astonishing devolpments. Not so long ago the Reds were claiming they invented everything and had the best of everything. Now the Soviet Union's top fashion expert, touring in Britain to pick up tips on foundation garments, admits: We're bringing up the rear, and we know it." Since she has opened the way for a frank discussion of Soviet fashion, we'll have to second her motion. The fact is, the best-dressed Soviet ladies look as if they had been outfitted from grandmother's trunk. The worst can hardly be distinguished from bundles of laundry. VIEWS OF OTHERS 'Best Dressed" Is Political Poison If Richard Nixon didn't have enough political strikes against him, his latest title is enough to do him severe injury. The Vice President has been named one of the best dressed men in public life by the Custom Tailors Guild of America; This kind of thing is all right for most of the others of the lop ten: outfielder Duke Snider, comedian Bob Hope, socialite Alfred Gwynn Vanderbllt. Snider performs in a uniform that gets dusty and dirty before he's through with a day's work; Hope has been known to go through a contortion or two that belies a bestdressed category; and Vandcrbilt is expected to dress resplen- dcntly. But Nixon is a politician. There may be those who deny that, but at least that's the profession he's in. And politicians just don't become best- dressed men. It's one of those things, like kissing babies. Politicians may dress neatly, casually, comically if the occasion demands, or modestly. There may wear clothes that become their trade mark, as in the case of the late Senator Hoey. But they cannot become "best dressed men." The best dressed monicker implies the political slicker, the drawing room set, the cocktail hour, the lawn party -- anything but rough 'and ready. And it's rough and ready that the voter likes his candidate to be. Adlai Stevenson rose a notch higher In a losing cause because he was photographed with a hole in his sole. The photographer won a Pulltizer prize. President Eisenhower has warmed the hearts of many a voter by appearing in fish camp clothes and golfing togs. Harry Truman gained a measure of support by wearing sport shirts loud enough to be heard all the way from Washington to Independence. Richard Nixon had better roll up his sleeves and fight this buttle. He'll, find his uphill road even steeper until he Is no longer considered a "best dressed man."—Shelby (N.C.) Daily Star. Riot At New Castle The roit at New Castle. Ind., unfortunately summed up the worst aspects of industrial relations. But is is an apt illustration of what must happen if the cardinal principle of the closed shop prevails. This is simply that the worker owns his job and the boss owns neither his business nor the place where he conducts it. The New Castle riot occurs over this set of facts: 260 people want to work for the Perfect Circle concern. Five thousand, most of whom have no relationship with the business whatsoever, want to keep them from working. The-common sense of industrial relations is that no man works at terms unsatisfactory to him. He can refuse to be employed at all, or if the conditions after hiring out are inequitable in his view, he can quit. He can not fairly be given the authority to tell the boss what he must pay, what he must do. The union is a logical and sensible bargaining agent in industrial relations. But it is not a army. It htis no authority in law or equity or morals to use force. Every businsess has the right to protect its property and its workers against violencee. A mob i* a mob whether it calls itself a union or subscribers to Judge Lynch's jurisdiction.—Dallas Morning News. SO THEY SAY While Ahierlcans are the bestfed people in the world our honor of exercise is making us a nation of softies.Dr. Thomas K.

'I Hear They Finally Confirmed It' Peter Fdson's Washington Column — White House Painters Got Only Break From Eisenhowers Illness WASHINGTON —(NEA)— Painters redecorating the White House probably got the only break from the President's illness. They were having a frantic time finishing the personal quarters of the Eisenhower family in time for their return. Now they'll have the chance to give the room two coats, they report. Two days after the TV appearance of Given Cafritz on Ed Miir- row's show—which has the town holding its sides with laughter over the boo-boos she pulled — the former No. 1 hostess of the town had a big reception for members of the Supreme Court. Only two Supreme Court judges, Harold Burton and Tom Clark showed up. Although she invited them all, not a single GOP official was there. The crowd consisted mostly of a handful of big names still loyal to Gwen but mostly second-string socialites who h-ven't eaten as well since the last party she threw. Gwen had two gate crashers ejected, and a guest cracked: "She ought to be careful about that, guests out here are hard to come by these days." No matter what fascinating, fattening foods are served at a party, tile customers seem to dive for the shrimp first. And the other day at a Mexican embassy reception the crowd finally had its fill. There were shrimp with mayonnaise, shrimp chopped up with onions, fried shrimp, barbecued shrimp, pickled shrimp, shrimp soaked in champagne, shrimp hash balls, chopped shrimp with egg and just plain shrimp to dip in hot sauce. Mexican Ambassador Don Manuel Tello got a wholesale price on his shrimp for the party, which was in honor of Augustin L. DeLa- Barra and Manuel Zepeda Garcia. Mexican members of the Shrimp Association of the Americas. Douglas Jay, British member of Parliament, is as loyal to the cause of democracy as they come. But if he has a choice of sightseeing in Moscow or the U.S. again he'll take Moscow, he says. 'It's safer and cheaper there, he's convinced. He wandered around in Moscow for two weeks on an official visit, enjoyed the sights and stayed within his budget. When his tour brought him to the U.S., he spent half of his daily allowance on the first three taxi rides. And in Washington he was bopped on the head by an attacker attempting to get all his dough away from him at one time. They've renamed the famous collegiate club organization to the "Thank God It's Thursday Club," here. Most big embassies and big cocktail parties seem to fall on Thursday. Then when you stay home next day because of a hangover, it makes for a longer weekend. Those Indonesians did it again with a party celebrating their Armed Forces Day. They always come up with the most interesting entertainment and cuisine in town, and kept their record by serving such native dishes as Gule, Bakmi Goreng and Simmeal Goreng. The first Is lamb with spices, the second noodles with shrimp and chicken, and the third, liver, shrimp, sliced onions and spices. Members of the staff beat out Indonesian tunes on brass kettles, and the embassy kids wiggled, twisted and waved their arms through an interesting series ol dances. Even though the Dutch are no' on the best terms with the Indo nesians these days, Netherlands Ambassador Dr. J. Herman van Roijen and his wife were on deck enjoying every minute of it. The path of diplomatic romance can be rocky in this town am booby-trapped with treacherous rec tape. Take the case of Egyptian air attache Gen. H. Khairi who wants to marry a girl from the Swedish embassy. They have to get permission fo the union from their ambassadors The ambassadors have to get per mission from the government back home. The U.S. State Department has to give an unofficial approval. The Moslem church has to okay it. The girl's church has to give its approval. And the question of the legality of such a marriage performed in, the District of Columbia is in doubt. Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD Nils Lennartson, an assistant to Treasury Secretary George Humphrey, accidentally left his wallet in the office of the prime minister of Turkey while attending a high- level conference with his boss in Ankara just before Ike's heart attack. Turkish authorities immediately assumed he did it as a traditional gesture to signify that the loan talks with Humphrey had gone favorably. Fortunately, however, they were kind enough to rush the wallet to the airport just in time for Lennartson to grab it as his plane took off. "Maybe they thought it was a nice move on my pa"rt," says Nils who had $400 in his billfold. "But I felt like I'd lost Port Knox." ; rx p Written for NEA Service tlie LJOCtOr jayS — By EDWIN p. JORDAN, M.D. Doctors quite often use worcls to their patients which are not understood and sometimes this causes a good deal of mental distress. Today's first inquiry is perhaps an example . Q—Will you please say what is meant by functional heart trouble? —Mrs. H.G. A—This Is a term commonly used by physicians for one or more variety of symptoms or signs pointing to the heart which are not a reflection of true disease of that organ. Sometimes there is heart consciousness, palpitation, rapidity of the heart, or other symptoms which might bother the patient but which do not mean that heart disease is present: the origin of such signs probably lies in the nervous system rather than in such a disorder as rheumatic fever, or hardening of the arteries. Q—Is there any danger of taking too many rgotamine suppositories for migraine headaches? If I take one almost every morning I don't get an attack but if I do not I have a headache.—Mrs. R.D. A—Yen, there l« considerable danger from taking ergotamine preparations regularly. You can develop a condition known as ergot poisoning which may be worse than the migraine. This drug should not be taken except under the advice of a physician. Q—I am. 40 years old and I have been hoarse all of the time for the past five or six months. This Is embarrassing and I wonder what you think I should do about It.-C.B. A—Tills can be a dangerous symptom of polyps or even cancer In the throat. A constant hoarseness ol this kind should never be Ignored but careful examination should be undertaken at onco. 4—My fiance* who is of normal Intelligence, has a younger sister wfto goes to a special school for retarded children. Would an affliction of this type be apt to show up in any children we might have because of the relationship?—R. A—It is not. HKely. It would perhaps be wise for your fiancee to obtain information from her sister's physician or those who are familiar with her case as to whether her mental retardation is possibly of an hereditary nature. Q—My feet are causing a great deal of trouble due to perspiration. I have tried many things but I have cracking and callouses on the feet also. Any suggestions? M.G. A—It is possible that the excessive perspiration is complicated by some other condition such as 1 ringworm. In a localized condition of this sort, which seems difficult to manage satisfactorily by simple means, it would seem to be a good Idea to see a skin specialist. Q—Is Instant coffee any more harmful to the health than other coffee? Some of my friends say it acts on the kidneys and irritates the bladder.—Mr. C.R. A—I cannot think of any reason why the actions on the body from Instant coffee should be any different from that of other varieties. The "instant 1 ' part of the name refv s to ' ne niaking, not to the elimination. THERE WERE TWO German boys, Hans and Fritz, who liked to climb the Swiss Alps. Well, one day Hans and Fritz took their mother climbing with them into the mountains. And, to make a long story short, Hans lost his grip and fell off the mountain. Fritz then turned to his mother and said. "Look, Ma, no Hnnsl" — Fort My«ra (Fla.) News-Press. JACOBY ON BRIDGE As Trumps Go So Does Hand By OSWALD JACOBT Written for NE AServlce Today we continue the series on trump play with a hand that introduces an important principle: It is dangerous to let the opponents weaken your trump suit. If your trump suit goes, the whole hand usually goes with it. Let's see how this works out with today's hand. Perhaps you don't like the contract; I won't argue with you about that. If North plays the hand at no-trump, he is sure to win at least 10 tricks. Even South can play the hand at no- WEST 4J1096 V8764 • 85 + J82 North 1 * 1N.T, 3» Pass NORTH (D) 18 AK53 V 1053 » AKJ3 + A74 CAST AAQ87 »92 . • 742 *Q109« SOUTH We* Pass Past Pas • Q10S6 + KS3 East-West vul.

Let him who I has never.made a bold bid for the sake of 100 honors vole* the fl»t HOLLYWOOD —(NEA)— Guys and Dolls: Movietown's one-time "Miss Cast" is about to surprise movie fans again. Typed as a cold dish by Hollywood until "From Here .to Eternity" put her hi the zippy, celluloid melting league, Deborah Kerr's ready to open another new talent package. Deborah—and not a voice double—will be singing "Getting to Know You." "Hello Young Lovers" and other hit tunes in the 20th Century-Fox movie version of Broadway's musical hit, "The King and I." "I don't think Dinah Shore or Doris Day will have to worry about competition from me." Deborah told me on the set of "The Proud and Profane" at Paramount: "There's a flattering consensus at Fox that my singing will be all right even if I hit an off-key note. It's a musical and yet it Is not a musical—that's In my favor." The late Gertrude Lawrence introduced the songs as the English schoolteacher to the court of the King of Siani in the stage show. Yul Brynner will repeat his role of the king. "It isn't for money!'' William Holden was explaining why he's the busiest actor in Hollywood, rushing from one picture to another so fast that theater managers just leave his name permanently on marquees these days. A combination of "great pictures —ones I believe in"—and a 14- year, one-film a year contract at complaint. Against the contract of four hearts. West leads the Jack of spades. The suit is continued, and South must decide whether or not to ruff the third spade. South shouldn't ruff that third spade. He should simply discard one of the small clubs that he is bound to lose sooner or later. This gives the opponents their club trick early instead of late, but it costs South nothing at all. What can the opponents do now? If they lead a fourth spade, dummy can safely ruff with the ten of he'arts. South will still have his four top trumps with which to extract all the trumps held by the enemy. The rest of the hand will then play itself. South makes a great deal of trouble for himself If he ruffs the third spade. If he then tries to draw trumps, he will run out of trumps while West still has a trump and a good spade. West will eventually take two more tricks, defeating the contract. It's true that South might manage to make the game contract even if he ruffed the third spade, but he would have to break the trumps 3-3 or get some other lucky break. He has no problem at all if he discards a club on the third spade. The discard is only half of the story. The other half of the story, is that dummy has a trump to stop the enemy's suit, thus relaxing the pressure on declarer's own trump holding. Paramount is Bill's answer for hi> Jet-propelled acting:. He'i ringing boi-offlce bella and the studio has permitted him t* make seven of the 14 films In th« first three yeari of the contract. Still compaigning for more adult films. Bill disagrees with Hollywood's practice of trying to make movies with universal appeal. Tha • movie "Sunset Boulevard," hi points out, made a fortune in bit cities but the studio was unhappy when it failed to click in small towns." Producer-director Billy .Wilder'! answer to the studio was : "I didn't make the picture for small towns." Says Holden: "I'm in Wilder'a corner. Roy Rogers' movies clean up in small towns but they don't put him in a tuxedo for big city movies. Hollywood must make all kinds of films for all kinds of people. It's impossible to make all movies appeal to everyone." Now it can be told that Gordon MacRae was the least surprised gent in Hollywood when he replaced Frank sinatra in the movie version of "Carousel." And the fellow telling it is Gordon! "I had a premonition that Sinatra didn't feel he was right for «h« role^and that he would back out at the last minute," says Gordon. "I told Darryl Zanuck I was eager for the part—and standing by—even after Sinatra was announced for It." That's the reason, Gordon refused to cut his hair, after completing "Oklahoma!" and wh yhe warmed up for the role by starring in "Carousel" at the Dallas State Fair In July. Sometimes wishing can make'it so—even in hard-boiled Hollywood. Claudette Colbert's not puzzled about the lack of sophisticated film comedies in which sh once starred. Her reasoning: "The writers who once wrote those kind of scripts for me became so successful they've all been made producers and there's no one left to write them." Another Kelly—Jack—is in line for big-time stardom after break- Ing the relative jinx. Minor roles in minor films kept Jack on the frustrated bench, he told me, "because Hollywood only thought of me as Nancy Kelly's brother." Now he's clicking in the film, "The Night Holds Terror," and as Parris Mitchell, the young psychiatrist In Warner Bros' "Kings Ro« f " telefilms. It's a Kelly year in Hollywood. .
