Eisenhower-Eden Talks If nothing more came out of the Eisenhower-Eden talks than a reaf f irma- tion of U.S.-British friendship, they would have to be marked down as worth while. But in fact considerably more emerged. Most specifically, the two nations pledge that, in company with France, They will take action to preserve the peace in the Middle East. Tri-country conversations to that end will begin soon. Recognizing that this is now the world's most dangerous sore spot, the President and Sir Anthony see, too, that mere talk will not ease the peril. The coming tri-partite meeting is intended to deal with specific military measures aimed at deteering Arab and Israeli leaders from fighting, or halt- ting war if it should start. The currency of these conversations will be the deployment of naval, air and ground forces strategically on the fringes of the trouble zone. It is fervently hoped that neither disputant will push to the limit when it understands the West is backing its resolve with force. Once that is clear, the way to a genuine settlement may be opened. Mr. Eisenhower and Sir Anthony placed blame on the Soviet bloc for heightening the risk of Middle East war by arms shipments to the contesting countries. Actually their verbal assault upon the Communist world was much broader and stronger than that. In the most stirring part of the Eisenhower-Eden declarations, they warned the peoples of all Africa and Asia to beware of Communists bearing gifts. With striking effect they compared Western performance with that of Communists on promises of self-determination and independence for dependent peoples. In the past decade the West has helped 600 million people in 20 countries to gain nationhood. In the same period in Europe alone the Soviet Union has snuffed out independence and freedom for 100 million persons in 10 countries once sovereign powers. In drawing this parallel the President and Sir Anthony seemed to be trying to brand Russia as the world's greatest colonial oppressor. The British prime minister stood with Mr. Eisenhower, too, in asserting their joint defense of human rights everywhere and pledging their peaceful restoration wherever they have been "temporarily" lost to communism. And they made plain that whatever differences might show between America find Britain, the two are firmly committed to holding R strong line all around th« world further agtiiut ommunltt De- by force or subversion. As was anticipated, the talks just concluded were reasonably fruitful, without producing starting results. They represent another solid milestone along the path of a great international friendship. Courageous Norway The Russian bear has the capacity to frighten a great many people, but the Norwegians do not seem to be among them. Back in 1949, when the NATO treaties were being signed, Russia warned little Norway not to throw in with the West. Since the two have a common border for a short stretch and Norway is close in the shadow of Soviet bombers, a Communist threat could not be lightly ignored. Yet the Norwegians defied their burly neighbor and joined NATO. Now they're giving another demonstration of nerve. They've seiged & number of Soviet fishing boats they charge with invading Norwegian fishing grounds, and are holding their captains for trial. And they're letting Russian protests fall on deaf ears. There's more to see in Norway than just the fjords. Some of those who tremble at a word from the Kremlin ought to go take a look. VIEWS OF OTHERS Self Determinism of Another Kind "If He Runs, I Hope It's to Gettysburg' Recent problems of American Indians being cut loose from control and special protection of the federal government are reflected in Canada. Members of the Six-Nations have protested that they are allies of Canada rather than subjects. The matter blew up when the provincial government of Ontario roled that the Indian marriages performer in the ceremonial longhouses had to be registered. The Indians pointed out that all their dealings were with the Central Government according to the Indian Act of 1859. Furthermore that agreement was in the form of a treaty and treaties are conducted with recognized governments, not with the subjects of one's own nation. Last spring the Indians were urged to vote In Ortario's provincial elections and were assured by the premier that they would not lose their rights by doing so. However, the chiefs were talcing no chances and advised their people against voting. The Indians have exhibits to prove that they are recognized as allies and not subjects too. They have home-made passports which have been accepted in half a dozen foreign countires including the United States. It's beginning to look as if citizenship in Canada and the United States isn't such an honor after all. Not for those who were here first.—Green Bay (Wis.) Post-Gazette. Cause Without The Man Comprehending the impossible is beyond the realms of cognizance; imagining the impossible ie not. This fact is probably unfortunate, since our oft-Utopian dreams cause us to reflect hopelessness upon our frailties. A dependable bartender is respected by his regular patrons. The customer asks his favorite, he gets it—the precise recipe. The right amount of this, the just-so squirt of that. It is harmonious. Promote this treadesman to capacity of Chief Bartender, Democracy's Tavern. Project his skill to satisfy international customers in the political circles. To be contemporary about this thing, suppose an American foreign policy maker orders. It's a double-liquid mix: an exquisite blend of diplomacy and military strategy. Coming up. There, in the short time it takes for the bartender to combine the elements is the cauldron of peace. Drinking it, and realizing what he Is thinking the policy maker Is drunk with success. Results: peace and prosperity. The world is one. There never was a bartender with such powerful skill. There never wil Ibe. Sad, sad.—LaGrange (Ga.) News. SO THEY SAY In 1955 one billion dollars was spent for office machinery to mechanize record keeping. But at the end of the year there were an estimated 200,000 more clerks than at the beginning. — Stanley C. Allyn, president National Cash Register, says office automation will not drive clerical employes out of work. * * * By its very nature, the electric utility industry can only be a. monopoly. Where you do not, and cannot, have competition, however, the public interest demands you have regulation. — Sen. Stuart Symington (D-Mo), urges cooperation between government co-op's and private utilities. * * * Your chief (President Elsenhower) is very much on the ball. As long as we stand together, there ain't too much to worry about. — Sir Anthony Eden, British Prime Minister, after visiting the White House. * .* #. I think at this early stage in my ministry, I should try to avoid controversy. - Harold Watkinson, new British transport minister on request to report whether men or women are better drivers. if. if. * I am convinced that there is a considerable minority in any age that Is tick with racial hatred. - Methodist Bishop Gerald H. Kennedy of La* AngtlM. Peter Edson's Washington Column — Eight-Point Eisenhower-Eden Statement Aimed at Asia Nations WASHINGTON —NBA) — The eight-point philosphical joint dec- aration issued by President Eisenhower and Prime Minister Anthony Eden was aimed primarily at the free nations of Asia. The purpose was to draw their attention to two basic sets of political and economic facts. In parallel arguments it Is set forth that the policy of the western nations is to support the nations of Asia in independence and freedom, while Soviet policy seeks their political and economic conquest. The proof of this latter contention is cited in the squeeze which th,e Soviet rulers apply to their own people and their satellites, in place of the promotion of their welfare. The Eisenhower-Eden declaration serves as an emphatic follow- up and justification of President Elsenhower's previous rejection of B u s s i a!s proffered "friendship" treaty. The second communique, which might be called the Dulles-Lloyd statement, gets down to the brass tacks of differences between the American and British approach to specific problems in Asia. That part of the statement which relates to Europe merely reaffirms adherence to North Atlantic Treaty Organization and reunification of Germany. This is not new. The general assumption is that Eden and his delegation return to London satisfied with their mission. But many points oi difference remain unsettled and subject to further negotiations, which will begin soon in Washington. As regards Israel, France will be invited to join these talks. They will study means to implement the Tripartite Declaration of May. 1950, guaranteeing borders. But the means of enforcing these guarantees have yet to be decided. Specific actions to be considered include economic blockades and Nati ns—and the possible use of U.S. and British forces in the ar»a to preserve order. An early report that such forces might be placed along the arnjis- tlcc lines in Israel In the immediate futur°- was wrong. Any decision to use U.S. lorces would, oi course, require approval by Con- The suggestion to strengthen the Eisenhower-Eden U.N. truce observation teams, now numbering fewer than 100 men, involves only a limited increase There is no thought of adding say 10,000 men to keep the peace. There was no new decision on furnishing arms to Israel to offset the arms f urnished Egypt by Czechoslovakia. Present U.S. policy is supply no arms In this area. But this does not rule out supplying arms if the situation changes. The other principal moot point in the Eisenhower-Eden communiqui concerns future trade with Com munist China. Again there weri no final decisions. Everything Is left to negotiation by oconomic ex perts. The British are under pressun to lift some restrictions on th larly to rubber which Ceylon am China trade. This applies particu Malaya would like to sell whereve they can. There are two embargo lists compiled by international coordi nating committees. The origlna list bans sale of strategic materi als to Soviet Russia The Chin list, much more extensive, appliec to Red Chins trade. American position is that in creasing this trade even by som millions of dollars Is not the im portant consideration. The has: question is what is best for pro moling the welfare and defense o the free Asiar countries and fo preventing further Chinese Com munist aggression in the area? The United States has no- agreed only to continued review o the two embargo lists to see any items covld be traded for th | benefit of the free countries. What may come out of thes reviews, no one can say now. There was no change in Britis support—for the coming year least—of the U..". opposition to ad mission of Communist China int the United Nations. Sunday School Lesson— Written lot NBA Servwe One of the most striknig things about the teaching of Jesus and various incidents in the life of Jesus concerns standards of value, aims and purposes in life. Those that are ordinarily accepted and acted upon are either definitely challenged or revealed as inadequate and lacking in comparison with life at its best. Take, for example, the case of the successlul farmer (Luke 12: 16 -21). In our own society he would probably be regarded as a commendable citizen. He might be a conspicuous example of energy and effectiveness. This New Testament farmer did what the average successful farmer would do. He planned for larger things. He'd pull down his inadequate barns and build greater. He showed sense, also in planning to do what many successful farmers fail to do. He was going to enjoy what he had built up. He wasn't just going to keep working, like those who .have got the working habit and can't stop. "I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.' What was the matter with that? A successful farmer could do It all without incurring any displeasure or adverse criticism on the part of his fellowmen. But In the eyes of God, as Jesus said, he was a fool. With all his success two things about him were wrong. He was a poor economist. He didn't take Into account the uncertainty of his own life and the certainty of death. And he didn't build anything really worth while with all his wealth and his success. As the parable says, he was not rich toward God. His treasure was all for himself. And Jesus added that everyone who ncted that way, no matter .how great his success or achievement, was like him. One might ask, what docs it mean to be rich toward God? One thing i» certain. It has a lot to do with one's feUow men. The whole New Testament Is a textbook In being rich toward God. The younf rkli mui who Mked, Jesus about eternal life (Luke 18: 18-23) was a very different figure from the farmer. But the same challenge of Jesus about values in life is emphasized in the narrative. Here Was a young man of good moral character, who, in a modern society, might well he regarded as an example for youth. Moreover, unlike the farmer he hadn't lived to himself. He was a "ruler" (Verse 18), living apparently a useful life. Yet, according to Jesus, he lacked one thing and it was the main thing. It was a hard prescription that Jesus gave him, and one that few who value what they possess, be it much or little, owuld find it easy to follow. Probably Jesus perceived that the young man's wealth was the real barrier between him and the supreme realization of life, the treasure in heaven. Yet not a few men of wealth have found their highest achievement and greatest blessing in giving their wealth away. Life at its highest and best confirms Jesus' conception of worths and values. „ LAWYERS are always afraid of the ad lib statement, even from their own witnesses. An attorney in Wichita swooned when he heard one of his character witnesses In a murder trial. "What's Bill's reputation?" "I'd say he's always been a straight shooter." — Lamar (Mo.) Democrat.

South could get rid of two clubs on dummy's ten and nine of hearts. If the queen of hearts hadn t dropped, Hecht would have triec the club finesse later on. His line of play gave him two chances. Hollywood Sees New Premiere By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD liP) — The movls capital, which has seen all kinds of premieres, saw a new one this week: an "exclusive premiere" for Cliiton .Webb's friends. During most of his Hollywood career, Webb has gifted his chums with private screenings of his films This week he asked them to see his latest, ."The Man Who Never Was." For fear the event might go unnoticed by the public, his studio invited newsreels, photographers and a scattering of press to attend the so-called exclusive premiere. Oh it was very chic. Clifton was there' at the door of the projection room to plant a kiss on the cheek of pals like Barbara Stanwyck, Marlene Dietrich and Dorothy Me- Quire. Others paying homage to the star were Van Johnson. Jeanne Grain, Patricia Morison, old-time star Richard Barthelmess. Jeffrey Hunter,. clad in cowboy duds, arrived from a nearby stage where he was filming night scenes for a Western. The self-styled Holmby Hills Rat Pack came in the club's hot rod. Den mother Lauren Bacall escorted hubby Humphrey Bogart (rat in charge of public relations) and Frank Sinatra (packmaster). Webb settled In a loge and happily prepared to watch himself on the screen for the next 103 minutes. He commented that such events as this one are the usual custom with him. "But usually I have a much bigger crowd," -he fnid, gazing at the 75 guests. "That's because people are working; I usually show my pictures on Saturday nights." But what happens if his guests don't like the picture? "Nothing can be done; it's in the can. Besides, they always use superlatives IB referring to my performance." The film was unreeled; it's the fascinating story of how British Intelligence fooled the Nazis by planting false invasion papers on a body which was washed ashore In Spain. When the lights went on again, Bogart established a beachhead at the refreshment counter and others followed suit. 75 Years Ago In 6/yfhevil/e— Fill the Blanks Dr. J. A.
