Time to Lay Down the Cards With the Geneva Foreign Ministers' conference under way at last, the teat is truly at hand for the Soviet Union. After a long series of discredited "peace" overtures, the Russians in 1955, under new management, finally put some substance into their "new look." They agreed to the long-delayed Austrian peace treaty. They lifted the Iron Curtain part way. They stopped shouting epithets at America and turned on the smiles. At the summertime conference at the summit in Geneva, they exhibited a conciliatory spirit which seemed to promise real gains toward peace. They appeared to have concluded that nuclear warfare was unthinkable, and that reasonable negotiation with the West was the only alternative. But, as has been said again and again since that meeting, what the Russians offered there was only a promise. That it carried more weight than earlier pledges was due to the fact of their token gestures of sincerity, like the Austrian treaty. Nevertheless, the real work of negotiation was put off. It begins now, with hard-headed discussion of issues like disarmament, European security and German unity. If no progress is made on any of these vital fronts, then we shall be forced to conclude that the Russians, for all their meaty 1955 gestures, are still determined upon their objectives of world conquest. We shall have to dismiss the "new look" as merely the most convincing of their frauds upon free peoples yearning intensely for genuine peace. No question of it, the Russians have gained considerably this year by their new tactics. A few months of really warm smiles have done more to lull Western fears than all the propaganda pumped out since World War II. But all the advantage does not lie within them, just the same. They were able this year to overcome to some degree their reputation for fraud only by delivering some real goods on the line. Should they now—after all this build up—once more show that their promises are hollow, they might find it impossible ever again to have responsible men in the West take them seriously. In a sense the West too is on test, in that it must be steadily alert to signs of real Russian intention to settle outstanding issues. But fundamentally, this is payoff time for the Kremlin. The Russians must deliver something solid, or their elaborate 1955 campaign will collapse, leaving an indelible imprint of distrust on Western minds. Prescribing Wrong Medcine At a recent conclave in Des Moinea, two prominent, D«mocr»ti« presidential prospects, Adlai Stevenson and Governor Harriman of New York, plumped for a return to farm price supports pegged at 90 per cent of parity. They indicated they felt this would be one effective way to halt the slide of farm prices in the nation. This is an odd argument, since the price decline began long before the GOP-sponsored flexible support system was even enacted by Congress. The truth is that some Democrats— and some Republicans—think the 90 per cent figure is a magic one, a magnet that cannot help but attract farm votes. There is not the slightest evidence that it represents in any way a possible solution to the farmer's dilemma. It did not solve the nation's major farm problems before, and is in unlikely that going back to it will be of real help now. VIEWS OF OTHERS Avoiding Molestation Taking notice of the increasing number of child molestation cases that have swept St. Louis with the opening of schools in previous years, Circuit Attorney Edward L. Dowd has moved this Fall to avert a recurrence Of such detestable crimes against innocent and defendless children. Believing that failure to instruct children as to the need for caution when they leave the school- grounds at noon or the end of the day haj been a contributor)' factor in the number of child molestation cases, he has drawn up a list of safety rules for children to follow which he believes will help to eliminate these transgressions of both law and human decency. These rules seem emlntly sensible and the main ones are accordingly passed along here. 1. Never accept rides from persons you do not know. 2. Never take money, candy or other treaU from any stranger. 3. Never go with a stranger asking for directions. 4. Never go with a stranger who offers you a Job. 6. Never let strangers touch you. ... Never play alone in alleys or deserted buildings. 7. Take a friend along when you go to the playground, the store or a movie. 9. Take down the license number of the automobile when a stranger tries to persuade you to ride with him; If you have no pencil, scratch the number on the ground with a stick or on the sidewalk with a stone. These simple rules, which can be easily implanted In the mind of each child, would go a long way in averting a potential case of child molestation before it gete started, which Is, of course, a the criminal gaining the confidence of the child, fundamental approach to a solution, In the vast majority of cases, most moletatlons begin with and It is at this plont that the rules could get In their good work.—Columbia (S.C.) Dally Tribune. Clerks and Courtesy A club in Irving is going to try to find out who Is the most courteous clerk In Irving. If th« search is successful, more than honoring of the winner will have been achieved. You see, there are salesmen and salesmen. There Is the salesman who checks in at starting time and out at quitting time. He is there and the goods are there. If you come in, it is up to you to know what you want, buy it and pay for it. Then (here is the clerk who Is so high-powered that he slxzles. He is never so happy as when he is wrapping you up In a deal whereby you go off with something you don't need nnd didn't really want in the first place. Then there Is the friendly person behind the counter who tries to help you toward what you need within terms that you can afford. Somehow he does it so cheerfully and so intelligently and so graciously that you go away delighted to have made a friend. The nrxt time you meet a clerk like that, get hi.s nanie nnd write his employer. Even if you don't live in Irving, it would be good to do that. You might wind up with two friends, instead of the one. — Dallas Morning News. SO THEY SAY Many a man who would instantly recognize his incompetence to extract & tooth, will not hesitate to utter the most firm and unyielding opinions upon matters of educational theory and practice about which he is not informed, — Dr. Virgil Rancher, president University of Iowa. The Iron Hand (of Russia) In the Velvet Glove ! is being reupholslered with more velvet, in the hopes that the West will relax. Here lies a real danger. — Hotchnan Conrad Hilton.

'The Natives Are Getting Restless' Peter Edson's Washington Column — Nicaraguan Ambassador Sacasa Prefers His Brunch King-Sized By DOUGLAS LARSEV And KENNETH O. GILM0RE NEA Staff Correspondents WASHINGTON —(NEA)— Perle rtesta is back fn town and Gwen Cafritz has her Invitation printing iress going, but Nicaraguan Ambassador Sevilla Sacasa continues 0 run first in the party-idea de- mrtment. Other morning—repeat, morning —he threw a champagne pasty ai he awarding of some medals or 1 t h e r. That's accomplishmen :nough. But he managed to cram i whole brunch on one nor: d'oeuvre. It consisted of three cinds of cheese, a quarter of ;tuffed egg and a tiny piece of mcon all piled on one piece of oast. At the flossy black tie opening of he National Symphony season Norwegian Ambassador W 11 h e 1 m rlunthe de Morgenstierne, dean of ho diplomatic corps, arrived at Constitutional Hall late and caused small crisis. There's a standing rule that late- omers must remain outside until ic first number is completed, ymphony officials decided to stick y the policy and told the ambnssa- or and his party they'd have to ait. "We should have skipped the last ourse." cracked de Morgenstierne. 'Besides I ate too much." No one at the Soviet embassy laims he can break 100 at golf. 3ut somebody there knows nil bout the "19th hole"—the duffer's erm for a bar. Other night at a movie cocktail party we picked up one of their match books. It has a slick golc cover with "Embassy of the USSR" printed in black letters. And above that is a neat little picture of golf ba g leaning against a 19th- hole sign. Official explanation: "They've been around for a long time. And we're not giving up the symbol of the hammer and sickle." Incidentally, if there was propaganda message in the movie, it was lost on most of the audience because ail lines were spoken in Russian. It was a technicolor "Romeo and Juliet," by the Moscow Ballet, set to music by Serge Prokofieff. Swell if you like arty stuff. If there was any propaganda plug during the evening", It was in the Marinovannaya Ryda which they served and which was a great hit. It's marinated fish mixed with onions, carrots and spices. In case you're confused about the formal White House winter social season, the technical status of It is now "suspended." First reports saying it was "canceled" have been denied. Ike might be recovered enough to go through a reception or two later In the winter or in the sprlng.^they still hope. Young, genial Bob Hill, who Just returned from trouble-shooting two ambassadorships in Central America to become assistant, to Undersecretary of State Herbert Hoover, Jr., rushed away from an official embassy reception a few minutes after he arrived the other afternoon. He explained: , . "The State Department rule is that the official car can only wait 10 minutes and I detest hitchhiking." Some of the fanciest entertaining in this town goes on behind the scenes in private homes or clubs. It's usually a small dinner party with plenty of intimate conversation and a selection of food that would be impossible to offer on a mass scale. Other night, for example, former ambassador Robert Guggenheim laid out a little spread in honor of Dr. George Yen, Nationalist China's foreign minister. Try it on your husband aometime. Caviar, sour cream and vodka turtle, quail, French peas with water chestnuts, shoe-string pota toes, tossed green salad, pate de fols gras and wine souffle for dessert. Also three kinds of wine in eluding La Tache, Romanee Cont: 1949 which goes for eight bucks a bottle.

JORDAN, M.D. Nature has given us remarkable odies which function with £re;U atisfaction. Once in H while, ho\v- ver, one of the bodily functions ets out of whack and we can, for xample, have too easy clotting of le blood, or its opposite—too easy leeding. Q—I should be interested :arn about a drug which is i to prevent blood clotting, p.irliru larly when one is past middle a^ and threatened with apo plexy.—F.V. A—There are actually two -sub stances which are sometimes li.icd in human beings to delay the co. agulation or clotting of blood. One of these is heparin which is obtained by making an. extract from the liver. The other is dicumaro which was originally obtained from spoiled sweet clover and can nou. be made in the laboratory. These substances must be used with care since too much of them may result In excessive bleeding. They ai.e not used too freely to prevent apoplexy but may have value for a few patients. Q—I am a saleswoman standing on my feet from 6:30 in the morn ing to 5 or 6 in the evening, with only a half hour for lunch when I .sit. .Lately my .right leg hits begun paining me and even aftiT a good night's sleep, I awake in Ihe morning with the same feeling. Is this a beginning of somethm serious?—Mrs. T. M. A—There are several possible causes for the discomfort you are having in your leg. You should have your feet examined for die possibility of fallen arches and lo make sure that you are weaving the most comfortable shoes possible. There is also the possibility of some difficulty with the blood circulation in. your legs. I should say that this wns serious enough for you to seek relief. <J— My dictionary says lhat sad- Ism Is a sexual perversion In \vhlnh satisfaction Is derived from Ihe In- Illotlon of cruelty, Doea thla mean only physical cruelty, or can It be mental cruelly as well?—Reader A—This term is derived from the Marquis de Sade, and I believe applies strictly to physical cruelty, though there is, of course, cruelty of the purely mental variety. Q—Would you please comment on the dangers, if any. of making blood donation every three months? There seems to be a divergence of opinion on this.— E.O.A. A—All of the evidence which I am aware indicates that a healthy person can make a donation of blood of the usual quantity at least, ns often as every three months i without producing any harm whatever. Q—Would you say something about the floating kidney? I should like lo know how this develops and whether it can be corrected with surgery only, and if It is serious.—Mrs. H.B. A—This Is a condition In which one of the kidneys is not attached as firmly as normally and moves around to some extent. It may not produce any symptoms at all, nor require treatment. If treatment Is needed, surgery is the only method of correcting the condition. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE fast Lets Fo» Set Himself By OSWALD JACOBT Written for NEA Service Most experts would bid hearts first with todays North hand, raising the spades later.
