Times Have Changed Again and again in the buzzing speculation over 1956 presidential prospects one hears the comment that the Republicans must be sure to choose a man not only of recogniable stature but of considerable national renown. The comment implies there is little hope for a party that plans to go to the polls with a candidate who at this stage, slightly more than a year from voting day, is not already a well-publicized figure. But, in the light of present-day television, a steadily expanding medium, this kind of thinking would appear to be somewhat old-fashioned. In 1952 Adlai Stevenson did not begin to acquire truly national status in the public eye until after former President Truman made it known at the end of March that he himself would not run. The nomination build-up for Stevenson was limited to three and a half months. He had another three and a half to make his appeal to the full electorate. By old standards seven months doesn't seem very long, but it was enough time to permit Stevenson to corral 27,31-1,000 votes, only about 160,000 less than the previous national record set by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1936. In 1950 a little-known Democratic functionary, Vincent Impellitteri, who succeeded to the mayor's chair in New York City upon William O'Dwyer's resignation, was dumped by his party and decided on an independent race. He had virtually no organiation. In fact he had nothing but underdog sympathy — and television. He won comfortably. If you would examine further the impact of TV, consider Senator Kef auver of Tennessee, the televised crime investigation hearings he conducted in 1949 and 1950 made his face-and name familiar in millions of households with that plus a mere scattering of party friends here and there, Kefauver in 1952 won 13 of the 15 presidential primaries he entered. There isn't much doubt that with TV a man today can be made nationally familiar in swift order. As a matter of fact, back in 1940 even before the advent of television, Wendell Wilkie was brought to great public notice in a few short months and banged across as the GOP nominee. He went on to hang up what was then a record Republican vole. To the citizen looking on, it would appear that the Republicans, and the Democrats as well, don't really have much to worry about on this score. The voters probably would be happier if the parties concentrated on getting qualified men find tet the build-up t»k« it* natural oourM. Dove of Peace Falters The labor party in Britain met in oon- clave recently with the twin goals of finding a fresh program and starting to mend the big breach in party ranks. Neither objective was achieved. Responsible moderates have realized for some time that their party had no bright magnets to attract British voters in 1955. The recent party meeting simply demonstrated that this lack is likely to plague them for many months—if not years—to come. As for healing the rift between moderates and the leftwingers led by Aneurin Bevan, the conference evidently nad no beneficial effect. If anything it seemed to drive the factions farther apart. Those who do not like even the most moderate Labor positions are perhaps pleased. But those who want to see two effective, responsible parties in Britain as well as America must feel regret at the low estate to which the British Labor partv has fallen. VIEWS OF OTHERS Question Of Returns When a contestant on "The $64,000 Question" decides to take $32,000 rather than cry for $64,000, everybody knows what is behind the decision. The additional prize after the tax collector got through is not considered worth the risk. New York's First National City Bank has figured the tax collector would take over $23,000 of the additional prize a $32,000 winner would earn by answering the $64,000 question. So most contestant have declined to take a. chance of losing what they have gained in a try for so little more. We might translate this situation into a more serious field—that of business. A business man making $32,000 is in the same position as a contestant, should the businessman try to invest his money, take a risk, work harder, produce additional goods or provide additional services in the hope of making, say, $64,000? If he should be successful, he would be in the same position as "The $64,000 Question" conestant: face to face with the tax collector. Our current tax structure discourages the taking of the risk, discourages enterprise. No one is hurt when the contestant Walks away without taking a chance. But when the businessman declines to take a chance, it means something to a lot of people. If he attempted the enterprise, he would provide more jobs and more goods and services. Perhaps he would have to build a new plant, buy machinery, hire many workers, salesmen and distributors. When he doesn't do these things, everybody loses. But why should he take the risk when he hight lose his shirt and has a chance to gain very little after the tax collector gets through? The spark of free enterprise is the chance to profit. Demagogues talk about tax relief for the "little man" and criticize any suggestion Chat higher income tax brackets be given relief. But the real loser is not the man in the high tax bracket. He can get along all right on what he has. The man losers are the nation and the people who would have those jobs and goods and services his enterprise would have created. Our nation became the greatest in the world with the highest living standard for its people because the oportunity for gain has encouraged enterprise. Confiscatory taxation kills the goose that lays the golden egg. Incidentally, how much would it take under the present tax system for a question-answer ing contestant or a businessman or anyone else to keep $64,000? According (o the figures of New York's First National Bank, a single man with a $4,000 Income would have to win $448,711.11 to have $04,000 to take home.—Chattanooga News-Free Press. It's Gone Great balls of fire! We read that Paul Johnson spent $44,831,00 to get defeated for governor. We know little of political budgets, but this sounds like a whopping one.

How many books might be bought for a library for everybody to read and enjoy. How many teachers might have their salaried raihod for a year. We could go on and on. That may not sound like much to a man (or a woman) who did not earn it. But forty-five thouand is a right nice sum. Whew!—Laurel (Miss.) Leader-Call.

'—But Have You Seen This Snapshot of My Boy?" Peter fdson's Washington Column — Republican Women Invading South—to Get The Facts, Mam WASHINGTON —(NEA)— The| National Federation of Republican Women—bless their simple hearts —do think up some of the darndest things to promote the cause of the Grand Old Party. Their latest escapade in search of political pearls has put oysters on their bill of fare. But you wouldn't exactly say it has created a Republican oyster stew. It's Oysters Rockefeller that interests them, and they mean Nelson Rockefeller—not his grandfather John D. It all began when the G.O.P. ladies got the idea that they should do more organizing among the belles and flowers of southern womanhood. Under the presidency of Mrs. Carroll D. Kearns, wife of the Pennsylvania Congressman, the National Federation of Republican Women scheduled a board of directors meeting right down in the heart of the Solid South of Democracy—New Orleans itself. A number of Southern women bold enough to admit Republican sympathies were invited. Republican banners were flaunted over the portrait of Andy Jackson in the St. Charles hotel lobby. A dinner ] was arranged at Antoine's. And Nelson Rockefeller, special assistant to President Eisenhower, was invited to talk. Now Antoine's, as most people know, is where Oysters Rockefeller originated. This is a delectable concoction of oysters baked, then broiled briefly, in the half shell with a sauce of butter, creamed onion juice, chopped parsley, minced fried bacon, pureed spinach and a few grains of cayenne. As an appetizer for an Antoine banquet of Republican women to be addressed by a Rockefeller heir, it was a natural. "I'm not too fond of sea food," confessed Mrs. Kearns on her return to Washington. "So the nieht before I went out to dinner by" myself and ordered Oysters Rockefeller—just to see what I would have to 'ace next day." To her surprise and delight she found them delicious. And they didn't disagree with her.-With this omen that Republican women could really conquer the South, and not be conquered by It, Mrs. Kenrns went to her dinner. made his confession. "You know," he said to Mrs. Kearns in that demure way he has, "I've never eaten Oysters Rockefeller before, either." It is a relief to report that he liked them and that they did not disagree with him .either. In the course of the dinner. Mrs. Seams inquired how Oysters Rockefeller got their name. More disgrace—Nelson said he didn't know. But to determine the answer, the thorough young grandson Nelson called in the chef at Antoine's. So into this gathering of high-hat Republican women he came in his high, bouffant white cap and kerchief and tunic and 'apron. He received the compliments. Nelson autographed menus for the chef, the waiters, the 'rasboys. Everybody had a fine old time. But when they asked the chef ho • Oysters Rockefeller got their he looked askance, says ent LO net mimei. ..*......, .... .~w~~~ . —, As head of NFRW, Mrs. Kearns j Mrs. Kearns.

And then—oh the shame of it history to i -r^ p Written for Nt.A service the LJOCtOr jayS — B y EDWIN r. JORDAN, M.D. Each year a good many correspondents write me that they suffer terribly irom fallen arches flat feet, or pain in the legs resulting from foot trouble. This is certainly a common complaint, and no doubt there are hundreds of thousands who suffer unnecessarily from difficulty with their feet. When one, stops to think about II the feet take a lot of punishment during life. Ever" time one takes a step the foot hits the grounc and has to carry the weight of the body for a fraction of a second. ~t one multiplies the number of steps by the pressure thrown on the foot, each time, it is'not surprising that the feet start complaining! Add to this standing on hard floors and sometimes poorly fitted shoes, and what is surprising is that any of us are comfortable in this part of our anatomy. There are two arches In the foot, one running the length of the foot and another crossways just bact of the toes. Either of these can collapse and result in local pain, soreness in the legs higher up, or just plain fatigue. Quite often a person with a fallen cross arch (metatarsal) is not aware of what is wrong; the only local sign may be a callus on the ball of the foot. Many people could avoid this kind of trouble entirely by wearing shoes which really fit the feet. This especially important during childhood—parents take notice— and young girls would be wise not to try to squeeze into shoes which flatter their feet but are likely to lend to trouble later! The person who already hns fallen arches can do something about it, too. Properly fitted shoes, often with a bar on the outside, or adjusted felt supports on the inside, arc frequently prescribed, Special exercises of the feet, such «> walking in stockings or socks on the outside edges of the; feet or trying to grasp the edges of the carpet with the toes, arc often helpful. So are stimulating contrast foot baths which help the circulation. At any rate almost all who suffer from their feet can be almost completely relieved, (hough it takes time mid some effort on the part of the patient. The results are worth it since fallen arches may cause general fatigue or pains in the legs higher up as well as in th> themselves. feet • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Ruff Is Easy Play for Gamt By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NEA Service This week we continue the discussion of how to play trump contracts with a few hands that feature ruffing tricks. Ruffing Is, of course, just another word for trumping but you usually think of benefiting by a ruff, whereas you might lose by trumping. A rather fine distinction, but not as important as the plays themselves. Today's hand shows the ruffing trick in one of its simplest forms. South must sooner or later ruff a diamond in the dummy in order to avoid losing . diamond trick. Everything depends on whether he does it sooner or later. West opens the four of diamonds, and South lets it ride around to the queen in his own hand, thus discovering that the suit breaks no worse than 4-1. At worst, therefore, LITTLl LIZ Sports ore good for people. There's nothing like o cold concrete stadium for building up your resistance. •""" South will have to ruff one diamond in the dummy. This ruffing trick will use up one of dummy's four trumps. Dummy's other three trumps are not needed for any purpose at all. Nothing is lost, therefore, if South draws three rounds of trumps before doing anything about the diamonds. Hence South should proceed with the three rounds of trumps immediately in order to extract all of East's trumps. Only then is it safe for Soutn to cash the top diamonds and ruff a diamond in the dummy with North's last trump. When this has NORTH AQ1074 98742 • K73 BAST *AJ5 V J10S » 10 4KQ8542 SOUTH <D) WEST AK931 • 9 4 J S 8 4 + A1063 VAKQ83 « AQ652 + » East-West vuL Sortk We* North BMt 1 V Pass 2 9 Pass 4V Past Past Past Opening lead— • 4 been done, South makes three further tricks with his two remaining trumps and the last diamond, fulfilling his game contract. South would lose his contract if he fiddled about with the diamonds before he had drawn three rounds of trumps. East would gladly ruff a diamond if given the chance toi do so, and then the defenders could I set the contract with two spades! and a club. ! This simple principle can be ap-i plied in many hands: Draw as' many trumps as you can afford to before you go after ruffing tricks.

Oct. 24 to—Anthony Quinn came right out and satd it—Ita'lian film sirens should start thinking less about bosoms and more about their acting. Well, if this doesn't start an international incident, nothing will. But the Oscar winner "Viva Zapata." 1952 is sticking by his guns. What's more, he is qualified to comment. The past three years he has spent much of his time film making in Italy. He has met or worked with most of the much- publicized actresses there. "Look—I've lived through two eras in Hollywood," he explained. "I came here in 1937, so I've seen the eras of Carole Lonibard and Mae West and the presemt time of Marilyn Monroe. I've seen them all. "The thing that has impressed me about nearly every one of them is the basic urge for culture. They all want to get ahead, to improve in their profession. "Betty Hutton wants to play the life of Sarah Bernh£.rdt, Marilyn Monroe wants to play 'The .Brothers Karamazov.' They all have ?~me burning ambition. They'll Sink? "But that's not true of most of the Italian babf- who have gotten big buildups. They think they can stay famous just because of their bosoms. That's not true. Because once their beauty starts to fade, they'll be sunk." Sole exception among the curvaceous Italians is Gina Lollobrigida, he remarked. And this is not merely because she is slated to star with him in "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" next year. "Gina has a good head on her shoulders." Quinn remarked. "She knows you have to keep working to stay on top." Such is not the case with other babes with whom American audiences are familiar, Quinn remarked. "Yet there are some wonderful actresses in Italy," he said. "Girls Ilk Lea Padoani, Valentina Cortesa, Kerima and Julieta Massina. These are serious performers who do great acting jobs. But they are overshadowed by the more sensational babes."
