Air Force Cooperation In Evidence at Fire Reactivation of Blytheville Air Force Base was sought by business leaders here primarily as a shot in the arm to a sagging economy. It has always been evident that reactivation would bring With it liabilities as well as assets. However, there are unexpected instances in which the Air Force has been quick to offer its assistance. The Wright Supply Co. fire was the most recent. At the request of Fire Chief Roy Head, the base sent a truck and the personnel to man it. Both remained at the scene of the fire until the bla/.e was well in hand after nightfall. Fire Chief Head was quick to say he appreciated this show of cooperation. The entire community well could echo this thanks and view this bit of aid as another stepping stone along the path to solid base community relations. The Democrats' Dilemma You'll have to scratch hard to find a political observer who doesn't believe that the'moderate course is the one most Americans wish to follow today. President Eisenhower's administration certainly has gone down that path. As a matter of fact, under the checkrein provided by a reluctant Congress, so did former President Truman's. The latter often proposed more radical solutions but few ever got far. Some, indeed suspected Mr. Truman of offering them in the almost sure knowledge they would be rejected. Everything indicates the Republican party intends to keep to the middle. The top Republicans are saying that whether or not Mr. Eisenhower runs in 1956 his program must set the key. Leonard Hall, GOP national chairman, advises the party to make itself over in the Eisenhower image. The situation presents a dilemma for the Democrats. Some are voicing fear that voters who want a moderate man and moderate program will inevitably choose a Republican for president. They feel therefore that to win their candidate must offer more daring proposals. This is not a new predicament. It has developed here and there at the state level. Republican incumbents of moderate or mildly progressive tinge have left Democrats with nowhere to go but leftward, unless they wished to dress up moderate proposals in their own wrapper. On the national stage, quite a few Democrats appear now to doubt that hew packaging is enough to attract a winning coalition of voters. They are skeptical of the wisdom of Sen. Lyndon Johnson, Senate majorty leader, in going down the center in Congress. , Certain party men are even reported questioning the candidacy of Adlal Stevenson on the ground he it too much of mU«r. OM Mtouwt, nut toft- firmed, has it that this is one reason Mr. Truman has been smiling warmly on New York's Governor Harriman, an avowed Delear, in recent times. The detached onlooker can concede the Democrats' dilemma but still voice bafflement at suggestions calling for a wide departure from the center. If that is where the overwhelming mass of American voters is to be found, then what sense does it make to propose candidates and programs that probably will not appeal to most of them? Their real hope would seem to lie in proposing fresh treatment of issues within the limits of the moderate course, and in choosing a nominee not only in harmony with that course but of such quality and promise that he cannot fail to make impact on the voters. This is a tall order against an incumbent party that is trumpeting prosperity and peace, even if it should not have Jlr. Eisenhower to lead it. Nevertheless, it looks like the order the Democrats may have to fill. Auto Crisis Is Here Anyone who thinks the forecasters are off the beam when they predict choking streams of automobile traffic in the years just ahead might contemplate new- figures from the Pennsylvanian Turnpike. This great 360-mile roadway, spectacular leader of the now impressive turnpike network in America, is a good measuring rod. It bears a good share of the traffic plying between the Middle West and the Eastern seaboard. In the 12 months that ended July 31 this year, the Pennsylvania road carried 15,342,000 vechiclcs of all types. This represented an increase of 23 per cent—almost one-fourth—over the load borne in the previous comparable period. Such a gain is truly staggering when it is remember that this was a poineer among the turnpikes. Its 160-mile center section is 15 years old. So one cannot say this a a "natural development" expected on a new highway just coming into its own. This nation's traffic crisis is not "coming." It is here. VIEWS OF OTHERS Wage Withholding by States Up to this point the supreme court has successfully dodged a head-on collision with the constitutional question raised by the federal government's seizure of wages before they're paid. As a matter of fact it's doubtful whether there's any provision in the constitution that would authorize congress to levy on the unpaid wages of the workers for federal income taxes. But in this and similar cases the court which is sworn to uphold the constitution has taken refuge in procedural technicalities instead of confronting principle squarely. At the same time it's interesting to note that the states in Increasing number are taking a cue from the fedeial government. With the constitutionality of federal wage withholding still in question some of the states are putting their own income tux collections on a wage withholding basis. The advantage is the same for the states that it was for the federal government. Petty evasions become difficult and collection costs and responsibilities are pnlmed off on the employers. There aye H) states besides Alaska and Hawaii which now use wage withholding in the collection of their own income taxes. Federal experience has shown how wage withholding facilitiates the imposition of ever higher rates would be altogether out of question If the lump payment* were required. It's going to be interesting to see what happens If all the states get abroad the wage withholding scheme and begin increa.sing their rates as the federal government has done. For certainly there's some limit on the number of deductions that can be made before a paycheck disappears altogether. Moreover, wflge wlm- holdlng at the .state level might be the forerunner of wage withholding nt the municipal level where income taxes also are being imposed or considered. If withholding reaches that point the tax gatherers a t the va rious levels of government might find themselves spitting and snarling at one another like the fabled cats of Kilkenny. And what attitude would the supreme court take in that event? Would the court hold that what was constitutional at the federal level was unconstitutional if attempted by the increasingly desperate state and cities?—Daily Oklahomt.

Peter Edson's Washington Column — Use of Antibiotics in Agriculture L Gaining World-Wide Attention WASHINGTON — (NEA) — World attention is being focused on a rapidly developing science by' the first International Conference on the Use of Antibiotics in Agriculture, held in Washington.

But they are only two of many mold-produced organisms just beginning to benefit mankind. Antibiotics are now commonly i OU f, j n carload lots.

The conquest oi pernicious anemia is indeed the combined triumph of experimental medicine and the of highly trained clinical sense physicians. One other point: Mrs. K. and The first and perhaps ihe best accurate description of pernicious anemia was given by an English physician, Thomas Addison, in 1855.

East returns the queen of spades, and South wins with the ace. South follows with the king of spades. Only one ruff is needed in dummy, so South can afford to draw two of dummy's three trumps. It is still too early to ruft the heart. First South takes dummy's top clubs and ruffs a low club in his hand. Declarer was hoping that the suit would break 3-3, but he can cope with the actual 4-2 club break. Only after ruffing the third round of clubs in his own hand can South WEST NORTH * 1043 VQ2 « A 10 3 *AK974 EAST .-.109J4 « K872 « J95 *10« + QJ51 SOUTH (D) 4.AK762 VA63 • Q64 + 83 North-Sou* vul.

Then he ruffs his last heart in the dummy. Not only does this provide the ruffing trick, but it also gets him to dummy in time to ruff another club. The second ruff establishes dummy's last club. South can lead a diamond to dummy's ace to lead the last club from dummy, if East discards, the club gives declarer his contract; and if East ruffs, Smith's last trump Is his tenth trick. If South took the ace of hearts at the first trick and returned the suit. East could lead a third heart at once.
