No responsible Western diplomats are pretending it was not a setback to Western solidarity to have the rich industrial Saar region on the German-French border emphaitcally vote down proposed internationalization of the area. But we can be moderately reassured by the fact that neither German Chancellor Adenauer nor Premier Faure of France chose to read disaster in this unhappy outcome of the Saar plebiscite. They exchanged expressions of good will. They promised (o work for continued good relations between--Germany and France, and for general European unity. This will now be more difficult of achievement. The French had insisted on Europeanizing the Saar as a price for their support of German rearmament and admission to NATO. The tiny Saar long has been the subject of German claims and French counterclaims. International control was the only solution the French would accept short of the Saar's unification with France itself. French leaders and Adenauer had agreed on this answer, and both French and German parliaments had endorsed it formally. But the citizens of the Sarr said "no," thereby upseting all the well-laid plans. What now ? Presumably the Saar will continue for a while at least in its present status: an economic union with France but a government largely free of either French or German control. The Saar population, mostly German, voted for this economic arrangement two years after World War II. In legislative of 1952 the overwhelming majority favored continuing the union and also endorsed political Europcanization. In the latest plebiscite it has not voted l.o end the economic tie with France, but seems to have reversed itself on the issue of internationalizing. A heavy pressure campaign by narrow German nationalists undoubtedly had much to do with the result. There certainly is no likeihood that in the light of this vote the Saar will soon be attached again to Germany, as it was before World War I and then from 1935 through World War II. If Western diplomats have any bright ideas left after this debacle »t the polls, they are not yet revealing them. France over recent years has made it eminently clear how firm is its resistance to the return of the Saar to Germany. By this plebiscite, the nationalist Germans, who made their weight felt in the Saar have have made equally plain their determination not to let the prize slip permanetly from their grasp. It is a real stalemate, and » challenge to Western leaders who wish to preserve and enhance the strength of the free We«Urn Astonishing Achievement With United Air Lines ordering 30 jet transports and thus adding to the growing swing toward jet-propelled commercial aircraft, we might take this time to bow respectfully toward the researchers and industrialists who have made this development posible. Jets, of course, came into military use near the close of World War II, and since have become a commonplace in military circles. Because they have been around for some time, we perhaps have been a little too casual in appreciating the labor that has gone into them. Jet engines are remarkable power plants. Adm. DcWitt Ramsey, president of Aircraft Industries Association, points out that it would take 25 sleam engines of 3000 horsepower each to match the full power of the six jets on a 600-mile- an-hour bomber. Yet the bomber weights only a hundredth as much as one steam engine. Only great engineering talent plus large sums of money judiciously invested could produce such results. To the engine makers, all credit. They have given America its chance to lead the world in the newest and posibly the most astonishing phase of aviation history. VIEWS OF OTHERS Tax Cuts, Willy-Nilly That seasoned old realist, Senator George of Georgia, has pronounced what is probably the wisest word that has been heard on taxes in many a month. He predicts that in 1956 Congress will cut taxes "whether one approves of it or not." This, of course, is election-year wisdom from a man who has seen the political parade for a long time. What he is telling us is that the compulsions working on congressmen in such a year are simple ones that relate to their judgment of campaign necessities. To go to (he voters without a fresh tax cut to offer is to a politician almost as foolhardy as striking out across the desert without an adequate supply of water. The delicate arguments of the financial wizards do not govern their thinking. Thus it is actually of secondary importance that Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey now believes that federal finances may be in condition to justify a, tax reduction next year. Not too long back Humphrey voiced serious doubt that the government's ledger would be in such favorable shape by 1956. He was looking for a deficit somewhere around 2.4 billion dollars. Today he sees that deficit prospect as only 1.7 billion dollars. That smaller sum could be wiped out entirely, the secretary thinks, if the various government departments can trim their expenses 3 per cent. The result would be a balanced budget — an administration ponl since the presidential campaign of 1952. Under these circumstances, Humphrey would urge cuts in both personal and corporate income taxes, presumably of a size that would not once more unbalance the budget. All this sounds pretty neat and logical, if it should work out as Humphrey foresees. But, as noted at the outset, the gentlemen who will be running for office in 1956 will not require the support of either logic or wisdom to convince them it is proper to cut, taxes. They live in a world where logic and wisdom intervene only occasionally. They live by political rules and axioms of long standing. To follow them means, they believe, survival. To flout them they are quite sure spell.s oblivion. — Gastonia <N. C.) Gazette. The Worries Some Have U. S. Treasury is having a rather attractive type ot trouble — trouble which would be n joy almost anywhere else. The Treasury has too much money on hand — the crisp, ne\v paper kind. The Treasury, believe it or not. Is one place wheer the demand for money has fallen behind the supply. Every head of a household may pause at- this point to enjoy the unalloyed bliss to be afforded by mere contemplation of such a circumstance. But to cease digressing: Because it sees a chance to save money, paradoxically, by making less, the Treasury has directed the Bureau of Printing and Engraving to slow down its presses during the present fiscal year until the present excess of money is unloaded. A 12 per cent, slower production rate is expected to save the government $1.3 million in printing costs. It's worries such as this the Treasury wrestles with. But there are many skeptics who will find it difficult to share its optimism* that every American will have enough paper money to meet his needs during the next 12 months. — Mattoon (HI.)

JORDAN, M.D. A young lady writes that she has rhea involves first the removal of seborrheic dermatitis and wants to [the crusts and accumulated fatty material and later the use of stimulating applications. Dandruff and oily seborrhea are comparatively mild conditions, but they have to be distinguished from serious ones. know if this means she is going to lose her hair. I can imagine i that this situation is causing the i young lady a good deal of mental; distress! ' First I should like to reassure. this girl that while the scalp disease known as seborrheic dermatitis may cause some falling out. of the hair, it is unlikely to lead] to complete baldness. j Furthermore, if she gets the proper treament she can probably get over all or most of the condi- i Hon. though I must say, in sonic instances, it is rather stubborn. ; This brings us to a discussion of; diseases of the scalp known med-j ically as seborrhea. The best j known of these is simple dandruff! or dry seborrhea. The other, pvin-i cipal variety is oil seborrhea' which may be associated with inflammation of the skin itself, in which rase it is called seborrheic dermatitis. Any kind of seborrhea, while it Is pricipally a scalp, can extend down to the eyebrows, ihej fare and even other parts of Ihe body. I Either variety apparently inter-' feres with the nutrition of the hairs[ so that they tend to fall more, easily. I In oily seborrhea the hair and : scalp teel greasy and are hard to ; keep clean, because dirt floating! in the air sticks and the hair fol-j (teles clog tip with oil nnd tiny scales of skin and dirt. The cause of seborrhea is obscure. No limit; parasite or germ has been Identified, though there are reasons to believe that some kind of infection may be at least partially at fault. However, seborrhea of either kind commonly starts after the general! hen U h has been lowered by such things as infection or fatigue. Anemia, constipation. Indigestion, lack of fresh air and exercise, and the uearing of stiff and ill-ventilated hats are also believed to contribute to the development of seborrhcn. No easy or quick cure for se- borrhoa is available. If some chronic, weakening is present, it .should, of course, bo treated.

When todays hand was played in the national championships, a couple of months ago, West certainly knew enough to pass the hand out at two diamonds, but he yielded to the temptation to take action. From then on it was hard to stop East from acting. East passed the double of two diamonds, electing to play for penalties. Now Myron Field, whose team eventually won and will go to Paris in January to play for the World championship, rescued himself In hearts. East doubled with satisfaction and waited for the slaughter to begin. West could actually have set the, contract one trick (hardly a slaughter) by leading a spade. East would take two spades, enter the West hand with a club, discard on the king of spades, and ruff a fourth spade. The ace of trumps would be the setting; trick. West had no way of knowing what it would take to set the contract. The bidding hinted that East had good diamonds, so West led the 'five of diamonds. Field won it in dummy and cashed another high diamond to discard the singleton club. He then led the trump from dummy and finessed the ten from his hand when East played low. The contract was now home, but Field was in the market for over-, tricks. He led the king of hearts 'ears back, Mickey was the vie-: '.im of a hip bone disease and j nade a miraculous recovery. j Hollywood still can't resist slug-f ring TV. | Talking about her hubby Tom!

People tired of TV and return- ig to the movies? Truth or bunk? Even a Hollywood trade paper can't agree with itself on the question. The Hollywood Reporter on October 12 said: "TV is get- ing more potent every day and is ceeping more former theater pa- .rons at a home using their sots during; the important evening hours." Same paper Oct. 14 under the big banncrline: "Movie TV Viewers Back to Pic- ,ures"— "Moviegoing among TV viewers has jumped 60 per cent on veekday nights over 1954. according to findings of the eighth Vi- deotown Survey conducted in New Brunswick, N.J."

Boys By O BTHOMAS 2B HOLLYWOOD '.f. — Sociology note: Gregory Peck is back from a field trip to observe the flora and fauna in the canyons of New York's Madison Ave. The reason for this research is Peck's next picture. "The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit." The best- selling novel concerns a onetime combat officer who tries to keep up with the hectic pace of the TV and advertising world. The significance of the title is that the Ivy League-cut gray flannel suit is virtually the uniform ot the eager young men seeking their fortunes along Madison Ave. He's Afraid When Peck reported.on his findings, he was wearing brown slacks "I got a gray fiannel suit back there." he explained. "Ivy League 1 cut and everything. But I'm afraid to wear it. "I can just hear what people would say—'Why don'i you wear the picture's title on your back?' " Peck said he spent several days talking to. young men in two big advertising agencies and one network. "I found they lived like most men of their age," he said. "Perhaps they have more drive and ambition than most men. For instance, I talked to one fellow v/ho started selling furniture retail. He found he wasn't reaching a very big market, so he went into wholesale furniture. That wasn't bio: enough for him. so he decided to go into advertising. It's Everything "These men think that advertising is everything. They point out that most of the big cigarette concerns are headed by advertising minds. Since there is so little difference in cigarettes, advertising is the deciding factor in sales, they clam." Peck said he didn't notice any of the "huckster" element that was depicted in the book of that name. He added that the men he talked to didn't like "The Man, in the Gray Flannel Suit." They thought "it was stacked" against the network president, a major character in the book. The film company shot some backgrounds In Radio City, Grand Central Terminal and other areas where TV-ad men hang out.
