Knowland Is In (Tht entry of Senator William Know- land'i name in the April 10 Illinois Republican primary gives the GOP presidential campaign its first competitive look. President Eisenhower's name already Is in this race, and evidently neither he nor Knowland intends to Withdraw. This fs also the first development on the Republican side which has not come •within the control of the party's Eisenhower forces. Up to now they have managed to keep a tight rein. The effect has been to delay or dissuade some possible candidates from getting into action. Filing deadlines for several primaries have gone by. During this long period of indecision respecting the President's intentions toward a second term, friends of Knowland have indicated more .than once that the senator was growing impatient. Recently, however, Mr. Eisenhower himself invited others in his party to step in, at the very moment he was making it plain he had no.objection to the entry of his name in certain primaries. Perhaps this was all the Knowland forces needed to justify their breaking the barrier. Anyway, Knowland is in. He can still get out quickly if Mr. Eisenhower should say he will run again. But by getting in now he serves notice to his party and the voters that if the President retires his own candidacy is a serious one. Whatever the plans of the Eisenhower leaders in the party, Knowland's entry must surely have the effect of taking their thinking out of the casual stage. If they have their minds set on a particular replacement for the President —if it comes to that—then they see now that specific maneuvers in his behalf must be speedily shaped. Should key Eisenhower men have instead merely a list of potential candidates to substitute for the President, then this development should induce them to narrow their choice in preparation for a contest. No one can say at this time how much strength may rally around Knowland if Mr. Eisenhower rules out a second term and the lists are open. He already has a strong appeal to the party's more con- sm-ative elements. Whether this is enough to enable him to take the nomination, or even make a real fight of it, is not yet apparent. But this event in Illinois is a message to many in the party that there are at least some elements in its ranks which will resist the idea of handing the nomination to anybody on » plotter. Anybody, that i§, except Dwight D. Eisenhower. VIEWS OF OTHERS Slowing the Killing Pace Many times note has been taken of the stiff competitive pace at which America's top businessmen labor. The mortality and disability rate among blue- ribbon executives is shockingly high. In a recent issue, Time magazine says the mounting business pace is creating an abnormal health problem which executives perhaps can only master by learning the art of relaxation. Unhappily, too many businessmen "relax" as hard as they work, going at strenuous play with a vengeance, or using it as just another form of work. The golf course has been described as a "kind of office with trees." As the experts see it, relaxation is less a matter of physics) exertion than diverting one's energies to outside interests every bit as absorbing as office work. What counts is getting the mind off business, not taking business to the gym or golf course. Time says some businessmen are realizing, too, that relaxation should include conserving energy on the job. So we hear more talk about cat-napping at office. Who knows? The siesta may become as popular in Wall Street as the dance, the "cha-cha-cha," is on Broadway. Clearly American executives have got to slow down. If they don't, we'll soon be losing so many of them that the country will start slowing down. Speak Up! Editor Mark Walts of the Cobb County Times of Marietta, Georgia got down to brass tacks the other day when he advised his readers: "In case you don't agree with any of the views expressed on this editorial page, don't feel frustrated. Write us a letter." We are most certainly In full and enthusistlc accord with that thought as we have stated many times. We also heartily endorse Editor Wait* thinking along this line: "Most of the things written here are aimed at providing food for thought. We don't expect everyone to agree with what we say. If an editorial seta people to thinking. It has served Its purpose. "Any newspaper worth its salt should express an opinion on subjects of local Interest. Citizens should do the same thing. We stand ready to provide space for citizens to 'sound off in —always subject to the libel laws of course." Mr. Waits' next paragraph is so timely that It merits special emphasis which we herewith give it: "Too Many people Today Swallow Their opinions For Fear Of Offending Some Unknown Power and Thereby Placing Their Financing Security In Jeopardly. We Would Like to see This Trend Reversed. "Don't be afraid of your opinions," concludes Mr. Walte, "if they are honestly thought out and sincere. You may be wrong, but few people will condemn you just for having an opinion." We've said all this before ourselves. The Important thing is that these ideas ought to be expressed in every community and again and again. —Kocky Mount CN.C.) Telegram. Didn'ts and Don'ts The year just passed has been called the year in which the New York Yankees didn't win the World Series and we could add that It is the year Tennessee didn't beat the Kentucky football Wildcats, that the Communist Chinese didn't invade Quemoy or gain a seat In the United Nations and that Princess Margaret didn't marry Col. peter Townsend. We would not confine our consideration of what has happened to didn'ts or New Year resolutions to don'ts. Of course there are many 'good don't such as do not drive recklessly, do not allow places to gather articles that become invitations to the fire hazards and don't fail to exercise the obligations of citizenship or to support those organizations essential to community progress. This, however, appears to be an affirmative year in which Americans and Kentucklans will accentuate the positive and for that we are glad. Decisions are faced and they must be made.— Lexington Herald. Peace in Our Time SO THEY SAY Anti-intellectualism and pressures toward conformity today are to be deplored. A symptom of these moods Is the federal security program with its demand not only for loyalty but for a sort of puritanical conformity. — Sen. Estes Kefauver, campaigning in Boston. Big corporations don't give all-female schools their full share of support because of a lingering attitude in the male world that education for women is not equally Important and valuable. — Otto Kraushaar, president ol Goucher College, a Baltimore women's college. * * * The time has come In Georgia and the deep south to lay aside such nice words' as circumvention and tell the Supreme Court we are going to openly defy that (antlscgregatlon) decision. — ' Eugene Cook, Georgia's attorney general. * ¥ * The best safety slogan I can think of Is: Drive defensively. You might know what you're going to do, but you can never count on the other fellow, — Oeorge Scott, of Chicago, a bus driver for 33 years who has logged 1,500,000 miles with- •ut aa Peter Edson's Washington Column — Eisenhowers New Hampshire Letter Is Flash Back to 1952 NBA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON —(NEA) —History repeats all over the page in President Elsenhower's letter to New Hampshire Deputy Secretary of State Harry E. Jackson. This Is the letter in which the President says he does not feel he should interpose objections to entering his name In the March primary election. After giving his supporters this build-up for their hopes, the President, in the net breath, knocks them down again by saying that "this cannot be construed as any final decision on my part relative to a candidacy for a second term." Almost exactly four years ago, Gen. Eisenhower was playing the, same game of cat and mouse with public and politicians on whether he was a presidential candidate. On Jan. 6, 1952, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. (R-Mass), announced that he was entering Eisenhower's name In the New Hampshire primary. The next day Gen. Elsenhower released a statement from his North Atlantic Treaty Organization headquarters In Paris. It was couched In the same careful both- sldes-of-the-questlon language used in the current letter to Jackson. It said yea, no and maybe but perhaps not. Anyone could read Into it anything he chose. Many people did just that as they are now doing with the 1956 letter. "There is no question of the right of American citizens to organize in pursuit of their common convictions," Gen. Eisenhower said In his statement of four years ago. "I. realize that Senator Lodge and his associates are exercising this right in an attempt to place before me next July, a duty that would transcend my present responsibility. In the' absence, however, of a clear-cut call to political duty, I shall continue to devote my lull attention and energies to the performance of the vital task to which I am assigned." Substitute the fact that President Eisenhower's chief concern today Is his health, whereas his problem four years ago was that he had another job. What you come up with Is the 1956 version of the 1952 thought. He says now, "freedom to select, nominate and elect a candidate to public office is basic to our American political system. Because I deeply believe that every citizen should have the widest possible choice in expressing his own preference in such matters, I would hope that the accident of my Illness and the necessary period for determining the degree of my recovery would not have the effect of interfering with the privilege of every member of our party to express Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD — (NEA>— Close- ups'and Longshots: Eddie Fisher has a date at Warner Bros, to discuss a remake of the late Al Jolson's 1928 movie hit, "The Singing Pool."

Reading or hearing this new statement, people who' have thought all along that Ike will he a candidate for a second term are now convinced he will run again. People who have believed he will bow out are' now equally sure. In 1952, Gen. Eisenhower kept this guessing game going for another three months. On March 7, 1952, Just before the New Hampshire primary, he again refused to say whether he was a candidate. He wrote this evasion to Robert P. Burroughs of Manchester, a former GOP commltteeman: "I have no alternative but to adhere to the spirit and intent of my public announcement of Jan. 7." Even after the March 11, 1952 New Hampshire primary, which he won, Gen. Eisenhower would say only that "any American who is so honored by so many other Amerloans should be proud." That didn't say he was a candidate and would run. President Eisenhower now writes to New Hampshire, "I am deeply gratified, that the petitioners have expressed this kind of personal confidence in me." That doesn't make him a candidate or say he's running either. In 1852 such «. statement did not come till April 11. Baker, predict she'll wed Buddy Rudolph when she's free . .

JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Written for NEA Service Is there any cure for trichinosis, A.L. asks, and says she has been told there Is no remedy. Unfortunately, she has been told correctly: there Is no remedy. If the worm responsible- for this disease could be recognized while still In the Intestine and before becoming embedded in the muscle tissue, purgatives and other drugs would be useful. \s a rule, however, the diagnosis of trichinosis is not made so early. Since trichinosis is one of the most widespread diseases in the North American continent and treatment is so unsatisfactory, the attack on he disease is aimed at prevenion. Trichinosis is preventable and could be entirely eliminated. The disease strikes swine primarily. It is by eating pork or pork products containing the parasites in live form that human beings acquire the disease. The disease is kept alive in swine, in large part, as a result of the practice of feeding these animals with raw garbage. The control of trichinosis by means of proper garbage disposal can be accomplished either by making material infected with trichinae inaccessible to swine, by burning the garbage, by burial or sanitary land-fill, or by killing the parasites in their larval form before the infected garbage is fed to the swine. These methods are entirely practicable and laws requiring suitable garbage disposal should be adopted by those communities which have no already dons so. Those with satisfactory laws should enforce them. The disease Is caused by an animal parasite and some 250,000 likely to swallow enough parasites people are believed to acnuirp pew Infections each year. Most of those infected do not show symptoms, but about 10,000 are to produce disturbances which could be identified although only a small number of these actually are pinned down. About one per son In 20 of those who have Infections with symptoms dies from the disease. This Is no matU». • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Thirfeenf'h of , Suit Is Setter By OSWALD JACOB?
