Liberalizing Immigration President Eisenhower's new immigration proposals would provide a good start toward a fairer, more sensible and more flexible imigration policy for the United States. They do not represent a program for complete revision of the complex, controversial Mcarran-Walter immigration law. That is a task calling for long study by both Congress and the administration. But the proposals might serve well until that is done. First of all, Mr. Eisenhower would increase the nation's annual immigration quotas by 65,000, boosting it to 220,000. This figure uses the 1950 census, rather thank 1920 totals, as a basic guide in calculating sensible percentages. There are both selfish and unselfish reasons why such a change seems wise. On the unselfish side, America always must be receptive to foreign peoples who have the courage and character to tear up old roots and seek a new home here. We were built and made great as a nation by the immigrant tides of the past. Promising individuals 'everywhere in the free world must be allowed the hope that they still can find haven here. As to the selfish part, the plain fact is we need now and will need in the years ahead many more talented, skilled people than our own population can supply. We are entering a curious period where, despite, rising total numbers, the prospect is for a labor force insufficient to meet U.S. production demands. Economists say the reduced birth rates of the depression 1930's are now being reflected in smaller than usual additions to the work force. The gap must be . filled. Mr. Eisenhower's program has other encouraging features: He would distribute the added quotas among nations that need them most, particularly in Europe. Some 5000 aliens could be admitted "without regard to nationality or national origin." This would permit entry of persons with special skills, or those who had undergone heavy hardship at Communist hands. He suggested also that national quotas unused in any year be pooled by areas and reassigned on a first comefirst ferved basis to eligible applicants within MI area. Now they become void if not used. And he would stop the present practice of "mortgaging" future quotes by charging against them persons admitted under the displaced persons law and various special acts of Congress.

Mor* tiww An Inspiration to Youth You don't have to be a baseball addict to understand that the country lost a stalwart citizen with the deah of fabled Connie Mack, who managed the Philadelphia Athletics for 50 years. Connie had a grand life, marked by many triumphs, filled with enduring friendships, always rich enough to enable him to surmount defeat and disappointment. Twice he broke up great champion- joyed the challenge of building with ship teams and started afresh. He en- new, untried materials. At all times Connie Mack was, as the President said, an inspiration to American youth in the most American of all sports. law, it fits the image of America at the friend of people everywhere who are struggling for freedom and new opportunity. s/IEWS OF OTHERS V\ud and Tomatoes Governor Hodges threw a. nice, juicy tomato at the northern press in an address before.the North Carolina Society of New York last week when he declared that: "We were found guilty without trial by much of the northern press, and apparently with no regard for the fact that the Supreme court decision (on school integration) overturned the law as that same court had pronounced it on countless occasions for some 60 years." The Gazette agrees with Governor Hodges' remark that "There is no ready answer" to the segregation problem, and we also agree with the statement In his address that the two extremes on the issue — the far. right which would close all public schools, and the far left which would force immediate mass integration — are both well of the right track. At any rate, we were happy to see the governor take a whack at the Yankee press. If they'd spend more time cleaning their own houses and mending their own fences,, botfc of which are in bad repair sociologically, they would have less time to throw mud In our direction. — Oastonia (N. C.) Gazette. \Aore Memoirs Former President Harry 8. Truman is now unfolding the second volume of his lively memoirs. Like most writings in this category, they are not history but a contribution to history. Mr. Truman, never one to dodge controversy, plunges right into another one by discussing the events that led to the Communist capture of China in 1949. He parcels out quite a lot of blame, but none of it seems to fall too close to home. Certainly no one who has read even the most general account of that period wants to fasten responsibility on him. The Chinese debacle had many causes. But his method of reporting this sad chapter shows the same flaw that cropped up again and again during his presidential regime. Mr. Truman seems constitutionally unable to acknowledge important error. He Is fiercely loyal to his friends and to his own memory of events. Unfortunately, both of them have proved faulty on a number of occasions—Greenville (S.C.) Piedmont. Pardon, Your Awn Is Drawn More power be given to those of us who bj necessity or desire shop downtown in the rain. This group represents the only true-blue friends of the fellow known-as a merchant. Sloshing down the sidewalk, one has enough discomforts pedal-digit-wise, with Water draining across his feet. And usually he has forgoten the galoshes. But hark! His woes do not end here. Not only must he suffer from wet feet, he must also attempt to keep his upper body and head dry at the same time. This grievance could be remedied with a twist of trie wrist—most downtown merchants have awnings out front. But when it rains—and if you haven't noticed then do—they invariably fail to come down with the awnings. We are sure that most shoppers would appreciate this little gesture of courtesy - and probably be more inclinded to do business with the store-owner who provides a protective ceiling during a venture downtown.—LaGrange (Qa.)

Ikes Message on Immigration Came at an Expedient Time NBA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NBA)— Presi- ent Eisenhower's latest message ,0 Congress, recommending revi- ion of. the controversial McCarran- Walter Immigration Act of 1952, s being interpreted here as something of a political document. • It has a special appeal to U.S. minority groups who want more of heir countrymen admitted to these shores. The hyphenated-American vote is considered important in election years. This message should satisfy local political bosses who have large numbsrs of foreign born to corral at the polls. The Presidents' recommendations were worked out largely by the Department of Justice .urider which the Immigration and naturalization Service operates. A flock of proposed amendments to the 1952 law were sent to Congress by Acting Attorney General Rogers at the same President's message William P. time the went up. These proposals may go a long way to meet the demands of senators like Herbert Lehman (D- MY), who has been a leader for liberalization of the McCarran- Walter act. But there is considerable doubt that a majority of the congressmen will go along with them— even in an election year. It is necessary to dig into recent immigration statistics to see Just what effect the amendments would have. Existing quotas of immigrants for each country are based on one- sixth of one per cent of the white population, census oJ 1920. This figures to 154,657 admissible aliens per year. Actually, for the last three fiscal years since the McCarran-Walter act was passed, only 81,000, 86,000 and 7,000 quota immigrants have been admitted. This is what has led to demands for liberalization of the law. The new proposal Is to base the total quota on one-seventh of one per cent of the total population, according to the 1950 census. This would include alien residents and people of the non-white races. It would make the total 219.461. Believers in the melting-pot the ory will still say this isn't enough. They want a wide-open-door policy. Under this new plan, however all quotas would be raised. Some 60 countries like India and Ethiopia, which now have minimum quotas of 100, would be raised to 200. The bigger countries would get more, the British quota would go !rom 65,461 to 14,181. The German quota would go from 25,814 to 38,988. Italy's quota would jump from 5645 to 10,796. The big change which the new plan would permit is to allow unused quotas from one country to be distributed among other countries that have waiting lists of applicants for admission to the U.S. as Immigrants. For this purpose, the Old World would be divided into four principal areas—Europe,, Asia, Africa and Pacific Ocean. At the end pi each year, the unused quotas in each area would be added up and distributed to other countries in the area Distribution would be by priority That is, the first unused entry permit would go to the immigrant having the earliest registration date on his application, regardless of country. It would work something like this: For the year ending last June 30 there were 59,125 unused entries in the European quota. They wen largely in Germany and Britain But there were 62,202 applicants who couldn't get in because their countries' quotas were used up These were largely In Italy and Greece. Distributing the 59,125 un used entry permits would almos clear up the backlog of 62,20' seeking admission, in one year. the Doctor Says — By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Written for NBA Service 'milk leg' after childbirth ten years ago," ' writes Mrs N.. "and am now having more trouble. Would you write on this subject and thrombophlebitis and whether anything can be done for it?" This and other correspondence indicates the need to discuss this subject again. Perhaps the best way to start is to describe the conditions that are involved and the names which are used for them. First, phlebitis. Thi. is an inflammation of the inside lining of the veins, usually those of the legs. If there are blood clots inside these blood vessels the condition is called thrombophlebitis. Milk leg, which is also called phlegmasia alba dolens, is a phlebitis of a particular vein in the leg (the femoral) which results in a whitish swelling of that limb. These conditions may follow a blow or some other injury. Heart disease is an important predisposing cause. Sometimes they develop alter an infection, an operation, or childbirth (particularly milk leg). At times they start without any obvious cause at all. Most cases of phlebitis or throm- bophlebitis are rather acute at the start. As In any other acute 111- Uons — have been reported favorably. Sometimes such treatments plete recovery takes place. Acute phlebitis is painful and annoying but it Is not as much of a problem as the chronic variety which sometimes seems to last Interminably. Although chronic phlebitis or the thrombophlebitis are difficult to manage, treatment is improving For example, the sulfa drugs and penicillin or its relatives are often found helpful. In addition it Is desirable to search for sources of infection in such places as the teeth or tonsils. Small doses of X-ray are sometimes used. Sometimes surgery Is advisable: the Inflammed vein Is tied, cut, or removed. One recent report on this subject suggests that surgery should be employed more often. Preventive measures are Important. Here renl vogrcss 1ms been made. Many of those who would h4v» b*d Uvk trouble a tow year* ago are now spared by such measures as getting up soon after an operation or childbirth and the administration of anti-biotics in those opefatlons which carry special risks in ths directon. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Trump Handling Makes Slam By OSWALD JACOB'S Written for NBA Service North's response of two clubs In today's hand is the Stayman Convention.

And so they're going to attempt o make an entertaining show out of the Academy Award nomina- ;ions tonight. The show was generally conceded a fiasco last year. Undaunted, NBC Is putting it on TV for 90 minutes again tonight. And Academy President George Seaton hopes that some of last year's mishaps will be avoided this time. 'The whole show will be done from Studio D in Hollywood,' said Seaton, noted director-writer of "Country Qlrl" and other films. "We are not trying to originate from night clubs this time. They can be pretty deadly places at 5:30 in the afternoon; some of them are deadly even after dark. 'Another bad feature of last year's show was the stage wait between the announcement of nominations and showing the film clips. Somebody had to read the nominations when they were Hashed on the screen, then run and select the cans of film and put them'In pjojectors. "This time a film editor, Billy Hornbeck, will be allowed to see the nominations when they are counted by Bill Miller of Price, Waterhouse. He will have the film clips edited and ready to go. The nominees for best picture, actor and actress will be announced that way, Instead of on cards, which provided little s uspense last year." The Academy has recruited a stellar list to aid In announcing the nominations, Seaton added. And he expects most of the nominees to be present this time. Exceptions: Anna Magnani, in Italy; James Dean, deceased. "We combed all the best-lists for possible nominees and Invited them all," Seaton remarked. "We have assured them they will not be televised unless they are nominated. It was embarrassing for some of those who showed up and then weren't named last year."
